It seems that there is another Constitution related double standard for the liberals out there. Does the First Amendment apply to businesses, or does the Second? Or, does the Constitution only apply when it can be misinterpreted in order to deprive Americans of their rights?
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 […]
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 […]
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” .
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 …
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
