STATE NULLIFICATION A CURRENT NEED…..


Image

            With a rogue administration who views the United States Constitution as a hindrance to their desired agenda the Constitutional Right of “State Nullification” becomes, a very current need and a must for today.  If the various States do not exercise this right this current government led by Barack Obama will plunge American into a state of dictatorial tyranny like never before seen in this nation’s history. 

             State Nullification is that the states can and must refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal laws.  It has been exercised by some states with challenges in court by the administration but is something that hopefully every state will practice in the days to come over the rogue actions of this administration.  The Department of Justice and the White House would have you believe that this was not what the framers had in mind but Thomas Jefferson would disagree.  If you examine the draft of his Kentucky Resolutions in 1798 you will find this word “nullification.”  Mr. Jefferson not only believed that the states had the right to do so but that it was mandatory for them to do so as the “rightful remedy” for wrongful, unconstitutional, and diabolical federal laws and actions.  Mr. Jefferson stated that when the federal government expands beyond its constitutional powers and violated the constitution the states were “duty bound to resist”.

             Thomas Jefferson did not invent the idea for we find in the historical writings of Federalist supporters of the Constitution at the ratifying Convention of 1788 in Virginia assured Virginians that they would be “exonerated” should the federal government attempt to impose “any supplementary condition” upon them.  Simply, that if the federal government should attempt to exercise a power over and above the ones the states had delegated to it they had the right to refuse.

 The basic principle they based this on was:

  1. The states preceded the Union.  (The Declaration of Independence speaks of “free and independent states” that “have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do.”  The ratification of the Constitution of the United States was not done by a single vote but by each individual state, each assembled in a convention.
  2. In the American system no government is sovereign. (The citizens of the states are the sovereigns, something that Barack Obama, who is supposedly a constitutional scholar, does not understand, ignores, and most assuredly disagree with.  The people within the various states apportion powers between themselves, their state governments, and the federal government.  That action is exercising their sovereignty.
  3. Since the people of the states are sovereigns, then when the federal government exercises a power of dubious constitutionality on a matter of great importance, it is they themselves who are the proper disputants, as they review whether their agent was intended to hold such a power.

            James Madison expounded in his Virginia Report of 1800.  It is something that too few are willing to exercise on too many occasions and it is up to us to force our states to step up to the plate and exercise the right of nullification when the federal government goes rogue as it is today.

            Thomas Jefferson warned that if the federal government is allowed to become a monopoly on determining the extent of its own power, we have no right to be surprised when it keeps discovering new ones.  James Madison in his Report of 1800 reminded all Virginians and should remind us today, that the judicial branch is not infallible, and some remedy must be found for those cases in which all three branches of the federal government exceed their constitutional rights. 

            I realize that some will argue that “nullification” violates the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause but there can be no doubt that Jefferson knew and understood the Supremacy Clause and believed that it applied to constitutional laws not unconstitutional ones.  Today we have a government, and a President that is operating as if the Constitution was simply a list of suggestion not regulations controlling the scope and power of the federal government therefore it is vital that the various states exercise their Right of Nullification whenever there are Unconstitutional Laws and Executive Actions issued from Washington and the White House.  I would encourage you to put pressure on your state officials from the Governor down to the State Representatives to act whenever the Obama Administration or any Administration implements or attempts to implement UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS or EDICTS.  We the People are the ones the Constitution gives the power to but unless we exercise our rights and our states exercise theirs the federal government will continue to grow larger, more powerful, and become more and more tyrannical.

            May God watch over, guard, and guide you and my God bless America again!

THE AMNESTY BILL IS WRONG BECAUSE….


Image         

            As I look at the “Gang of Eight” and their Amnesty, Pathway to Citizenship, or whatever you want to call the bill before the Senate it is bad on so many fronts and levels that I do not have time to enumerate all of them.  Suffice it to say that when you have a bill that is almost a thousand pages long you know you have a problem in not only understanding, interpreting, but enforcing the measure effectively, efficiently, or even as the framers of the bill intended.  When you have a measure that puts “Border Security” behind “Amnesty” you have the cart before the horse.  When you have a bill that has triggers that only kick in if Janet Napolatino of Homeland Security says they are not doing a good job, you know that the bill is a farce at best.  When you have a bill that Barack Obama, the Democrats, the media, Karl Rove, and RINO’s like you know that there is probably something in it that is not good.  When you have a bill that the “Promises” far exceed the actual “Bill” you have a bad bill and one that is not only wrong but dangerous for America and our National Security.

Image           

           Barack Obama said, in support of the bill, “The time is now to give young illegals a pathway to citizenship.”  He did not call them ILLEGAL only that they broke the rules getting here and should not be allowed go GAME THE SYSTEM.  I find that laughable in that this President is one of the chief GAMERS OF THE SYSTEM on so many fronts that he would even suggest that the ILLEGALS are going to pay any penalty.  He refuses to enforce our IMMIGRATION LAWS now and has rendered the ILLEGALS to a mind-set that says, “We are not going to be prosecuted or deported so why not GAME THE SYSTEM.”  They already have FREE – education, health care, welfare, and in many cases vote so why would they even care about LEGAL STATUS?  Most of them do not care about American citizenship or America they are here for what they can get and they are getting it FREE OF CHARGE!

             I find this bill a tool to expose the true colors of “so-called” conservatives in Congress and identify them for what they are – Political Hacks who are only interested in projecting an image and thinking, mistakenly, that they will secure the vote of the illegals in future elections.  No, the blacks vote En masse for the Democrats and Obama, the Hispanics vote heavily for the Democrat Liberal Agenda, as do most of the other “so-called” minorities.  Republicans you won’t get their vote by trying to press this type of legislation and you will lose some of the conservative vote in the process.  The end result is that your vote totals will decrease not increase.  You will grow the government again, and this situation with ILLEGALS will not be solved, the border will not be secured, and we will be talking about this again in a decade or so.  It will be costly and is ill-advised.

           Image

 

            We MUST secure the border if we are to have any hope of solving the ILLEGAL problem with regard to immigration.  Anything short of that and ahead of that is a bad idea.  My Senators and Congressman know how I feel but now is the time to advise them again because the bill is being debated in the Senate and they will add a few amendments that will allow them to say, “Well we fixed the issues and now I can support it.”  This is a very bad idea, because the amendments WILL NOT FIX the problem or the bill.  IT is time to SAY NO to this legislation, focus on Border Security and then we can talk about what to do about the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT problem.  That being said, I still have a problem with the ILLEGAL component of the problem.  When did ILLEGAL become a good thing?  When did it become honorable to BREAK THE LAW?  When did increasing the voting base of the Democrats and the Liberal Left become a desirable thing for any Conservative, American Patriot?  Sorry, but Senator if you vote for this bill you made it to my NO MORE LIST.  Same goes for you in the House of Representatives. 

             I am not anti-immigration but I am against this piece of legislation.  If someone wants to come here LEGALLY then you are welcome.   If you make an effort to become assimilated into our American Society then you are welcome.  If you obey the Laws you are welcome.  BUT if you come here ILLEGALLY you should never be granted a pathway to citizenship ignoring your crime.  SECURE THE BORDER first then let’s talk about the Immigration problem.

Image

             We are told that these people are in the “shadows” and to find out WHO THEY ARE we have to give them AMNESTY.  I find that almost laughable seeing as how our government can track all of us LEGAL CITIZENS via phone, email, etc. but can’t discover who these people are without AMNESTY.  That is such an incredible indictment on our investigative abilities it is a crime or at least a crying shame.  No, this is a political football and nothing more.  Even the RINO John McCain admitted that this bill will not garner ONE VOTE for the Republicans it will only say, “Look at us we don’t hate Hispanics.”  We don’t, but we do not endorse ILLEGAL ACTIVITY including immigration and that is not, hating someone it is supporting the United States, our Laws, and Constitution.  Sorry Mr. McCain you and Mr. Rubio along with all the other RINO’s have missed the boat on this one.

             May God be with you and may God bless America again!

BARACK OBAMA HAD GIVEN NEW MEANING TO THE PHRASE – “WE ARE ONE”


  Image       

            There have been times when the American people stood “As One” against enemies of liberty and freedom and prevailed.  There was a time in this nation when the common thread that ran through our society and even our government was that of a unified desire to do what was right and best for this nation while following the “rule of law” and the “constitution.”  That day has vanished with the Obama Administration and the phrase “We Are One” is applicable to them but not to the rest of us.  They are ONE in the truest sense of the word and we, who are conservative, law-abiding, followers of the Constitution, and patriots are considered “Enemies of the State” by this administration.

             I am convinced that Lois Learner did not develop a hatred for the Tea Party, Jews, and Conservative groups once she assumed her position in the IRS, I believe she arrived at that position with that ideology firmly intact.  Susan Rice did not develop her willingness to spin falsehoods for the administration regarding Benghazi at the behest of Barack Obama she assumed her position because of her ideology.  It is an ideology firmly entrenched in Obama’s psyche and core belief system.  Samantha Power did not develop her disdain for Israel and the Constitution once she was placed in the position she held and holds by this administration because of her beliefs and those of her husband, Cass Sunstein.   Van Jones was chosen because of his ideology, as well as every other appointee of this President.  They are “Peas in a Pod” and “Ideologically Inseparable.”  Obama does not have to give them a directive to target the Tea Party, Jewish Groups, or Conservatives they know what he believes, believe the same and know that he will have their back, if at all possible.  Eric Holder and Barack Obama share the same ideology and Mr. Holder knows that Obama will back him and if worse comes to worse Obama will pardon him should he be indicted and convicted of anything.

 Image

            Sadly, today the left and the Democrats have become so in tune with the political ideology of Socialism, Marxism, Big Government, and the destruction of the American Constitution and National Sovereignty that when you see or hear one you hear Barack Obama.  They are willing to deny any and all truth to push their agenda.  They will scheme, connive, cover-up, stonewall, distort, divert, and divide whenever they can to accomplish their political and ideological purposes.  They do not love America as was founded and has been enjoyed for over 200 years.  They want a Totally Dominant Federal Government that controls every aspect of the lives of the citizenry.  They, being the ruling class of elites, will be exempt from the very laws that they write but not so for the rest of us.  They gave us Obamacare but are exempt. They are apologist for the unimaginable actions of the IRS and accuse those victimized of being the problem not the predatory agency that is advancing Obama’s agenda.  It would be akin to telling a rape victim that she was the blame for the attack for whatever reason.  No, the rapist is to blame and should be held accountable and so should the IRS.  I agree with Ted Cruz and others who seek to abolish the IRS and replace it was a “Flat Tax”, “Fair Tax” or “Consumption Tax” whatever you want to call it where there is no need for this massive rogue agency that has the power to literally destroy lives and businesses at will.

             Barack Obama’s administration has given new meaning to the phrase “We Are One” in that it identifies not only do “birds of a feather flock together” but that they are ALL THE SAME!  They drink at the same fountain of ideological thought. They live at the same address of ideological thought. They work at the same job of ideological thought. They live, breathe, eat, and sleep the destruction of America as we know her and replacing it with a Totally Dominant Federal Government that has complete control.

Image

            We have the “Death Panel of One” identified as the U.S. Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in denying a 10-year-old a lung transplant and said, “Some live and some die.”  So much for being the Party of Compassion as the Democrats like to identify themselves!  If you examine the various and sundry things that have transpired under this administration’s watch you would wonder if the Democrat Party values anything except their Political Agenda and Place.  They remind me of the Sanhedrin when discussing what to do about Jesus when they said, “If we don’t do something the Romans will come and take our nation and our PLACE.”  They were concerned about their POSITION not the nation or anyone or anything else and that is what I see in today’s politicians. 

             America is in trouble and needs our help.  The only question is are we willing to give her the help she needs and deserves?  Will we, as patriots of old, rise to the occasion and do what is required to preserve our Freedom and Liberty?  Are we willing to go the distance for our nation?  I am and hope that you are as well.  Exactly what that will require is yet to be determined so my stance is that I am interceding for this nation, working diligently to put and keep pressure on the elected officials, and informing as many as possible of what is happening and at stake.  Is that enough?  Probably not but it is what I feel directed to do at this time.  That being said, I am willing to sacrifice all for my God, my family, and my nation.

             May God be with you protecting you and guiding you as you pursue Peace and Freedom and may God bless America again!

THIN SKINNED, TIGHT LIPPED BUT NO ACTION PRESIDENT….


 Image

            Honestly, I have been amazed at how “thin skinned” Barack Obama is and how easily he is irritated when things do not go his way.  He reminds me of a “spoiled child” in the way he reacts to criticism, questions that challenge his actions, words, or ideology, and resistance by members of Congress, Talk Radio, or the media.  If you want to get a “childish response” just dare to question him about anything that he believes will make him look bad or questions his political ideology.  He wants civility from everyone on the right but does not seek to tone down the assault from himself or anyone on the left.  He will become vocal in a millisecond when there is anything he doesn’t like from or on the right but let the left engage in misrepresentation, spin, and political rhetoric and he is suddenly mute and doesn’t want to get involved or interfere with some process.  The double standard is not just stunning it is so plain that a sightless person could see it.

Image           

            Likewise, he is “tight lipped” when it comes to what we know regarding terrorist.  He seeks to intimidate those who have “inside information” about any situation or investigation.  He is more than “tight lipped” when it comes to divulging his personal records, college transcripts, associations with various special interest groups and former domestic terrorist.  Yet, he continually declares that he is the most transparent President we have ever had.  I don’t think the man is delusional as that kind of statement and his rhetoric would indicate.  I think he knows exactly what he is doing or not doing and it is purposeful and with malice and forethought.  That would mean that I am suggesting that this President is knowingly in violation of Federal Law and in direct conflict with the Constitution of these United States of America.  That, to me, is more than disturbing but even more disturbing is that millions either do not see it or refuse to believe it and the Congress has no stomach for the dirty task of holding him accountable.  They fear the media, the left, and special interest groups that would be upset by that action.

            Mr. Obama’s administration is apparently, according to a recent report, sitting on information regarding Benghazi.  I am not talking about the ongoing investigation that is so obvious that they are obstructing justice and stonewalling the investigation.  I am referring to a report that they have identified the “Mastermind of the Benghazi Attack” and he is walking around footloose and fancy free in Libya with not concern that we are going to do anything to apprehend him.  That information has come from several sources, all anonymous but from supposedly “high ranking” officials in the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, and the administration.  They have to be anonymous because if their identity was leaked they would be immediate targets for slander and recrimination if not vengeance by this administration and the Depart of Justice or Injustice whichever you prefer.

            Image

            The report from those sources said that the reason for “inaction” or “no action” was Mr. Obama is afraid of “upsetting” the wrong people.  One special operator, who had seen the video in real time, said that there is general frustration in the intelligence community and the military over the lack of response by this President.  That individual said, “We have all the capability, all the training, all the capacity, to kill and capture not only terrorists involved, with the specific events of 9/11, and Ambassador Stevens’ death, but terrorist that are feeding other regions including Europe that could eventually affect our national security in the short term and we’re not talking midterm or long-term, this is short-term.  It is a daily frustration.”

            We know that Libya is one of the largest terrorist havens in the world and is growing in Libya and North Africa but this administration worries about offending the Muslims so “no action” is taken.  Benghazi is second only to Saudi Arabia in the number of foreign fighters it houses.  It does not take a rocket scientist to know that if we continue to “ignore” the situation as we have in so many others and delay, delay, delay, deny, deny, deny and prove to be indecisive and incapable of responding in a definitive manner it will lead to further and future attacks on Americans and American entities.  This administration has falsely claimed that we are actively engaged in finding and destroying the more than 20,000 shoulder-launched missiles called MANPADS in the region but operatives there state that they are not allowed to take or destroy any of those weapons because those up the chain of command are sitting on their hands.  Some have noted that in the field they regularly come across SA-7’s.  What will it take to move this administration off the dime and get definitive action?  Will we have to lose a huge commercial airliner or something of the like?  One would have to question if that would get action from the “no action” President?

            Image

            The world is watching our every move and those that hate us and want to destroy this nation are becoming more and more embolden with each passing event in which there is “no action” or “wrong action.”  They will soon reach the point where they have “zero fear” of any response by this administration, if they are not already there and LOOK OUT because it will get ugly.  I have little doubt that if they wanted to sneak nuclear weapons into America they could with the lack of real security, the porousness of the borders and the failure of this administration to act on credible information and intelligence.  That could and will be catastrophic for our nation and our people and yet I have many tell me that I should not be critical of this administration because in doing so I am being divisive.  I have to ask, “What exactly is this administration doing that is not divisive?”  The President’s political posturing and strategy seems to be “divisiveness.”  He seeks to “divide and conquer” and is constantly in the attack mode when he is not partying, vacationing, and playing another round of golf.

            Yes, Barack Obama is the most “thin skinned”, “tight lipped”, and the ultimate in “no action” Presidents in American history.  If America is to have any hope of recovery he must be exposed and held accountable.  Will that happen?  You tell me for we’ve had almost five years of this and he has been given a free pass and likely will for another 3 plus years. 

            May God bless you and may God bless America and guide her down the path of restoration and renewal.
