Executive Overreach Comes Back to Haunt


“This isn’t about Republicans and Democrats, it’s about defending the Constitution that we swore an oath to uphold and acting decisively when it might be compromised.”

- Speaker of the House John Boehner

“The main vote that they have scheduled for today is whether or not they decide to sue me for doing my job.” – Barack HUSSEIN Obama

For doing his job…his job has been the destruction of America from within…and yeah…he does need to be sued for that. Continue reading

Opinion: The truth about Republicans and amnesty – one writer’s view

Whenever the subject of immigration reform comes up, a charge that is certain to be bandied about is that Republicans are trying to foist amnesty on the country. Almost every Republican of note has been accused of supporting amnesty at some point in recent years. Are these charges true? What is the truth about the Republicans and amnesty?

First, what is amnesty? Merriam Webster defines “amnesty” as “a decision that a group of people will not be punished or that a group of prisoners will be allowed to go free” or “the act of an authority (as a government) by which pardon is granted to a large group of individuals.” Similarly, Merriam Webster defines “pardon” as the “act of officially saying that someone who was judged to be guilty of a crime will be allowed to go free and will not be punished.” Is this what prominent Republicans are advocating?

The saga of the missing emails drones on ad-nauseum

“There may have been nefarious conduct that went much higher than Lois Lerner.”
House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp

Just as a federal judge orders the IRS to explain under oath how the ‘infamous’ missing emails were lost now comes this…according to IRS information-technology (IT) experts it seems back-up tapes…considered an option of last resort for recovering any missing emails…have suddenly and miraculously been found even though the IRS kept claiming all these many months that the physical hard drive was either recycled or destroyed.

Still claiming “there is an issue” as to whether all the backup tapes were destroyed, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen confirmed they do indeed exist and that they were only ‘scratched’ NOT irreparably damaged as previously claimed…while at the same time talking out of both sides of his mouth by saying he does NOT know “how they found them” or “whether there’s anything on them or not.” Continue reading

For Lois Lerner, it’s another day, another erased hard drive

temporary2On Monday, July 14, the House Oversight Committee linked embattled former IRS agent Lois Lerner with yet another erased hard drive connected with a federal criminal investigation. In a letter to the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, which can be found on the House Oversight Committee’s website, relates to April Sands, an employee of the Federal Election Commission during the 2012 presidential campaign.

The letter details how Ms. Sands posted twitter messages during work hours “soliciting or endorsing political contributions to Democratic candidates, including President Obama.” The letter then provides screen shots of several of Ms. Sands’ tweets from an account known as “Reign of April:”

Hate spewed in God’s name

LIE!

How dare they…who do these ‘supposed’ men of the cloth and some ‘wanna be’ and currently elected politicians think they are. And when you add in some who in their minds only think of themselves as ‘political celebrities’ of sorts…you get persons who have set themselves up as judge and jury over a small percentage of the American population.

And the examples I’m cited below are just the tip of an ever expanding iceberg.

Scott Esk, a Republican Tea Party candidate from Oklahoma, got into a heated back-and-forth discussion on Facebook last year when he called for the killing…YES killing…of gay Americans. Continue reading

Convention of states is mathematically impossible

In recent years, some conservatives have responded to the gridlock in Washington with a call for a convention of states to amend the Constitution. Conservative author and talk show host Mark Levin has compiled a laundry list of “liberty amendments” that he would like to see ratified at a convention of the states. Those unfamiliar with the concept of such a convention might wonder how, as Levin told CNS News, Americans can “turn to the Constitution, to save the Constitution, if you love the Constitution, before there is no Constitution.”

The idea of a convention of the states comes from Article V of the Constitution, which describes the amendment process. Amendments have traditionally been proposed by Congress, but the Constitution does provide an alternative method. If the legislatures of two-thirds of the states call a convention to propose constitutional amendments, then those amendments will take effect when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the states. This means that agreement of 34 states would be required to call a convention and 38 states would be required to ratify any proposed amendments.

Religion and politics…one in His name and one of winning an election

The hate mongers are out in force…full force…as they try to make the 2014 mid-terms a rallying cry around the social issues…around religious issues…and know that if they succeed all will be lost again.

The most important goal for the November mid-term election is to retake the Senate and increase our numbers in the House… NOTHING…I repeat NOTHING…is more important than that…NO local race…NO state race…NO social issue…NOTHING… because if we don’t retake the Senate it’s over…period.

And to that end to win we need numbers…BIG numbers. And to get those numbers we need to pull in any and all who want to see our country return to the rule of law known as the Constitution, and herein enters the oh-so dirty word that the ubber religious far right fear the most…inclusion.

“Secure this border Mr. President”

“Allowing them to remain here will only encourage the next group of individuals to undertake this very, very dangerous and life-threatening journey…and those who come must be sent back to demonstrate in no uncertain terms that risking your lives on the top of those trains and the ways that they are coming here, it’s not worth it.”
- Texas Governor Rick Perry’s words before an HHS committee looking into the crisis at our southern border

And with those words kudos must go out to Governor Perry…a man of courage who stood strong and said what needed to be said as he echoed the words of what many of us believe…ship them all back including the children…period.

Saying that entering our country ILLEGALLY is both a humanitarian and a national security crisis, Perry’s recent testimony before the above said HHS committee held NOTHING back as he made it clear that we need to “Secure this border now.” Claiming the unending stream of unaccompanied children ILLEGALLY entering our country is a direct result of Obama’s failure to secure this border, Perry then went on to say…and rightfully so…that Obama’s recent changes to our immigration policy sent a message to any and all that if they send their children here they would be allowed to stay.

On the birth of a nation

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth”…and so it began two hundred and thirty eight years ago today as the greatest nation the world has ever known was born.

Born out of war yet dedicated to peace, the United States of America changed the world forever with the simple words…“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The ‘Constitution-Free’ zone is anything but constitutional

“When you go into business in this country today you do NOT give up your moral conscious.”
- Part of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby

 

Ending the biggest assault by any administration on religious freedom, ‘We the People’ won two battles yesterday as the Supreme Court ruled in favor of both Hobby Lobby and that caretakers do NOT have to join or pay unions so they can take care of loved ones at home.

Two battles won but there are so many more to go before our beloved America is set right again, and one battle that looms large as it affects our welfare system, our healthcare system, and our economy is our unsealed southern border situation… especially in Texas. Continue reading
