The Bergdahl Swap – More Questions Than Answers

Bergdahl Classification Isn’t What Matters – Don’t Miss the Larger Picture All over the media there is horror and consternation in regards to the Bergdahl return.  He is being called a traitor and I have seen many calls for the death penalty floating about.  You are missing the bigger picture here.  First and foremost, the military never classified Bergdahl as a deserter.  That makes a huge difference in how the military should behave in trying to find and free him.  The military had an obligation to do so.  Secondly, the bigger picture seems to be getting missed here.  President Obama broke […]

President Obama, Which Side Are You On?

The Obama administration gives away FIVE HIGH LEVEL TALIBAN JIHADISTS and we get a soldier who went AWOL, and that in all probability aided the enemy. What the friggin’ hell? Obama has either totally lost his mind, is insane, or he willingly gave aid to the people who are killing our soldiers; the the very people our soldiers are fighting, the enemy. Yes, Andrew C. McCarthy is correcti n saying that we need to be focusing on the fact that President Obama has freed five high value Jihadist members of the Taliban and Haqqani network while the Taliban and Haqqani […]

Irony Alert!! Flashback to 2008: Obama slams Bush for NOT going thru Congress…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. I’m thinking this is a case of do what I say, not what I do. In other words, Standing Operating Procedures for Liberals… Yeah, but this was before the Imperial Presidency. Via Right Pundit: “I taught constitutional law for ten years, I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President” .

An Example Of Trey Gowdy’s Aggressiveness

Holy moly! I’d hate to have Trey Gowdy investigating something I “allegedly” did. Mr. Gowdy is leaps and bounds smarter, sharper, quick “on his feet,” intelligent, and down right knowledgeable than anything or anyone Obama has on his team. I believe if Gowdy is allowed free rein on the Benghazi investigation he’ll expose Obama, Hillary and all the rest for the frauds and traitors they are.  Check out the way he grills this guy. Almost makes you feel sorry for him …

Supreme Court: Prayer at council meetings constitutional

  The Supreme Court upheld the right of local town councils to have prayers in conjunction with their meetings. The 5-4 decision said that even if prayer featured Christianity, as long as the council was “inclusive” of other religions, if applicable, that it did not violate the Constitution. The Supreme Court has upheld the right of local officials to open town council meetings with prayer, ruling that these do not violate the Constitution even if they routinely stress Christianity.  The court said in 5-4 decision Monday that the content of the prayers is not critical as long as officials make […]

Freedom Is Just Another Word

What good is our constitution and its first ten amendments, the Bill of Rights, if the courts and our elected officials don’t uphold it? Is “freedom”, as Janis Joplin said in her song, Me & Bobby McGee. just another word? To this humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in, it does seem that we are losing our freedoms at such an alarming rate that maybe freedom is just another word of little significance. Let’s review some of our guaranteed rights. The First Amendment Freedom Of Religion _ In this once Judeo-Christian nation, it seems to me […]

President Obama’s Top Ten Most Divisive and Un-Constitutional Executive Actions

Since he took office in January of 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama has flouted the rule of law which is the bedrock America was founded on. He has visibly encroached upon and exceeded the boundaries set forth in the United States Constitution. Now Obama hasn’t written more executive orders than his predecessors, in fact, in his first five years he is on par with other one term presidents. But in his case,it isn’t the quantity, it’s the quality of the EOs.   The Heritage Foundation has taken the time to compile a list of the top ten most egregious un-Constitutional […]

Dems Push for a National Popular Vote – Reader Post

TCL over at The Conservative Lady (which is an awesome site), has news that George Soros and the Democrats are once again pushing for a change in our national elections.   Graphic via:  Evil Klown – Exposing Idiocy This is an old cartoon. I guess it should now say “…the most Facebook friends”.   I’ve posted on this subject in 2011, and now it’s coming back into the forefront.  The New American and Dick Morris are reporting that the Democrats have a plan to “transform” our county’s voting system, and not in a good way.  The plan is for the […]

Will our nation change its name and do away with states some day?

Our nation, as constitutionally formed, is The Republic of the United State of America. In theory, a republic is where the supreme power is vested in the citizens who elect people to represent them. Do you feel that we are living in a republic? Do our elected officials really represent their electorate? And, what about the words: United States? Are we, a constitutional union of states, where all power rest with the states except for the enumerated powers constitutionally assigned to the federal government? Our nation may have started out as The Republic of The United States of America but […]

Huge Win for the 2nd Amendment Foundation

John W. Jackson is an Australian citizen, who legally resides in America, specifically in New Mexico. He applied for a concealed carry permit and was denied on the fact that he was not a citizen of the United States, even though he was a legal resident. He sued the state of New Mexico, along with the Second Amendment Foundation for his right to obtain a concealed carry weapon permit. The crux of the state’s defense was that it is impossible to do a full background check on citizens of other countries, even though they reside legally here in the US. […]

Has Our Constitution Failed Us?

First, an update on the situation here on the shores of the “Sea of happiness”. This blogger’s first paragraph sums it up quite well: (certain words are edited out for security reasons) After three weeks of repression, fifteen dead, at least 60 reported tortured tortured and more than eight hundred detained, including opposition leaders and reporters, the XXXXXXXXX students have at least shown the world what little respect the XXXXXX  administration has for the human and civil rights of the people. XXXXXXXX has seen similar repression before during XXXXXXXXX rule, but never has it been compressed in such a short period of time. Or […]

Cop to Student: ‘You just lost your free speech rights!’

A troubling part of our current age is the fact that too many law enforcement officials have absolutely no regard for the United States Constitution. Here is another example of that disregard, when an officer told a student that he no longer had “free speech rights.” The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that […]

Re-writing the Constitution to our demise … part II

A few days ago I wrote Re-writing the Constitution to our demise to address the latest attack on the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens who is 93, and I’m not sure if all his oars are hitting the water now that he’s retired, suggests the 2nd Amendment be re-written or amended to read … A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed. Now anyone can understand what, if that were to happen, […]

What If The Constitution Were Re-written Today?

If Mr. Obama’s reach for unprecedented power is not stopped, that will be the end. Everyone who values his life and liberty should find some way to say “No!” “Not now!” “Not yet!” “Not ever!” The above was taken from the closing statement of a Forbes article by Associate Professor of Economics at St. John’s University, New York, M. Northrup Buechner. In his article, Professor Buechner makes a solid case for the impeachment of President Barack Obama. He supported his case with a laundry list of occasions this president has ignored or not complied with the constitutional limitations on the office of […]

Constitution is Problem, so Says Chris Hayes of MSNBC

Oh, that pesky separation of powers, limited government and freedom stuff all interfere with our nanny state!  That might as well be the translation, as Chris Hayes of MSNBC took to the camera, and spewed regressive nonsense at the handful of viewers that bother to watch. And they wonder why no one watches?

Valedictorian’s Mic Cut During Graduation Speech: Apparently, the Consitution was not an Approved Topic

We’re seeing the next phase of “cat and mouse” between freedom loving kids and public indoctrination facility staff.  Now, when it appears that when a graduate starts to discuss a forbidden topic, their mic gets cut.  Moonbattery has the rest… Looks like the authorities are on their toes now, resolved not to permit any more sudden outbreaks of liberty: A North Texas high school silenced its Valedictorian’s microphone during his speech, prompting questions over his free speech rights. Students attending the Joshua High School graduation say Remington Reimer’s microphone was cut off, right when he began to talk about the […]

Why the left demonizes our Founding Fathers

Yesterday while listening to the Sean Hannity radio show a caller who identified himself as a liberal questioned why conservatives hold such a godlike reverence towards our Founding Fathers.  After all these men were nothing but rich, white, slave owners who spoke of liberty and yet enslaved a people.  You could sense the caller’s contempt towards our founders in his visceral tone.  It had a healthy dose of arrogance seasoned with anger.  He further went on to call conservatives unintelligent people who only cared about huge corporations.   Mr. Hannity let the man continue on with his rant without saying a […]

Mayor Bloomberg’s twisted “interpretation” of America

Mayor Michael Bloomberg believes our interpretation of the constitution needs to change to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks like the Boston Marathon bombings.  And my guess is sadly many people agree with him.  During a press conference Mr. Bloomberg said, “The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry, but we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.” Does […]

What Really Happened in Boston: Constitution Defied?

I had a very uneasy feeling for the entire search for the second Boston Marathon bomber.  How does one shut down an entire city? Considering the Constitution, under what authority can people be ordered from their homes at gun point, and searched without a warrant?  Just a reminder, here is the Fourth Amendment… The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and […]

Once Upon A Time, Americans Had A Reasonable Expectation Of Privacy

The right to privacy is not addressed directly by the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. However. … The U. S. Constitution contains no express right to privacy.  The Bill of Rights, however, reflects the concern of James Madison and other framers for protecting specific aspects of privacy, such as the privacy of beliefs (1st Amendment), privacy of the home against demands that it be used to house soldiers (3rd Amendment), privacy of the person and possessions as against unreasonable searches (4th Amendment), and the 5th Amendment’s privilege against self-incrimination, which provides protection for the privacy of personal information.  In […]

RINO ALERT!! Boehner Willing to Abandon GOP & 2nd Amendment

In the spirit of pure bipartisanship that is simply for the sake of saying a bill is bipartisan, Speaker of the House, John Boehner said the following when asked if the Senate gun control bill would pass with a majority of HIS OWN FREAKING PARTY not voting for it: “GOP? GOP? I don’t need no steenking GOP to take yer guns!!” Okay, first of all, I paraphrased and secondly he was referring to the Hastert Rule which basically says that any bill without support of the majority party will not be brought to the floor for a vote. But Johnny […]

Public Schools are Indoctrinating Kids with Anti-Gun Propaganda

They get so many other  things wrong, that I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that public schools are indoctrinating kids into believing that  the Second Amendment means not a whole lot.  In fact, they are teaching them that the Second is pretty useless indeed.  Girls Just Wanna Have Guns has more… Boibeaux’s son is an eighth grader at Northeast Middle School. On Monday his social studies teacher gave students a worksheet titled, ‘The Second Amendment Today.’ “The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” the worksheet states. […]

Firearms Companies Denying Sales to Law Enforcement in Gun Grabber States

Even firearm companies are getting into the act, denying sales to law enforcement in areas that have restrictive gun laws. Here is more from CNS, via I Own the World… A growing number of firearm and firearm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them. According to The Police Loophole, 34 companies have joined in publicly stating that governments who seek to restrict 2nd Amendment rights will themselves be restricted from purchasing the items they seek to limit or ban. Extreme Firepower Inc., located in Inwood, WV […]

Obama/Holder’s War on Small Business and Their Gestapo Like Tactics

Last year on the campaign trail, Obama let his slip show when he said that if you owned a small business, you didn’t build that. With absolutely zero experience in the private sector, our president has no idea what it means to risk your own, hard earned money, time and good name to start a business. Being steeped in the politics of Marx, Obama actually loathes folks that have made it on their own, with no help or thanks from the federal government. His education in Alinsky’s tactics, the MSM’s blind devotion and a dumbed-down electorate have all come together […]

CBS Condones Doing Away With the US Constitution

CBS asks, “Is the US Constitution truly worthy of the reverence in which most Americans hold it?” Why does it not surprise me that CBS would take this view of the foundation of our nation? This document is the bedrock upon which everything American was built. We are blessed to belong to the greatest country on the planet where individual liberties and freedoms were put ahead of any thoughts of autocratic rule after we won our battle for independence. It would have been ridiculously easy for some or any one of our founders to have decided that they could rule […]
