Asking for martial law?

A Nashville Sheriff's Police Bearcat. Sign of militarized police.

Regular readers know the United States Department of Justice has prepared for martial law for years. They have placed up-armored Army and Marine surplus vehicles with police departments and sheriff’s offices, large and small. And you, the taxpayer, have paid for this excess. Of course some police department would use those vehicles for some totally unnecessary “bad-ass” policing. But could anyone say ahead of time that a United States Representative would ask for martial law?

No more defeatism, Christians

Bradlee Dean discusses what poverty in America often looks like.

 

We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Preamble of the United States Constitution

The fire starter

Fire fighters

The arsonist or fire starter, the most vile of all creatures who dwell on this planet, come in two basic forms.

If America knew her history

The Constitution. Jihad is incompatible with it, because jihad means treason.

 

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.

– Alexander Hamilton, 1775

Last week, concerning the topic of immigration, Politico did its best in attempting to “erase” and “obscure” all knowledge of the U.S. Constitution by helping spread more propaganda for this criminal administration.

The Judas Factor

Judas, moneybag in hand, at the Last Supper

The border crisis has created an anomaly in my thought process. I find myself in the peculiar and rare position of agreeing with Mr. Obama: a humanitarian crisis does exist at our southern border. In truth, I find it hard to look at the faces of all those young children and not feel compassion for their plight. It is the opinion of this writer that they are innocent victims being used to further blur the borders of these United States, thereby creating crisis of all kinds and manners for the purpose of ____well, I’ll leave it to the reader’s discretion to fill in the blank. Of course not all of those crossing illegally are children, some are gang members and it is also assumed that many may be Al Qaeda or other terrorist group members seizing the opportunity to enter the country easily and without documentation.

Lois Lerner: she-wolf

Lois Lerner, former head of the Exempt Organizations Division of the IRS, is every taxpayer’s nightmare of a tax agent. Like Zacchaeus, at least before Jesus passed through Jericho, she made herself one of the most despised women in America. She stands accused, in fact, of “showing the fig” (Greek sycophanteo I defraud by accusing falsely) as they used to call it in Zacchaeus’ day. In this case, Lois Lerner trumped-up evidence of wrongdoing or fatally irregular activity, in this case to deny tax-exempt status, or delay a finding until it no longer mattered.

Second amendment big win

The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution

A federal district judge, in the District of Columbia no less, ruled resoundingly for the Second Amendment. He granted summary judgment to stop completely the ban on carrying guns in Washington, D.C.

‘Christian’ leaders and truth

The Ten Commandments: antidote to communist ideology

 

There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough – a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice – which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.

– J. C. Ryle

Obamacare: split decision

The gavel: a symbol of justice and punishment for corrupt officials.

The key part of Obamacare, the Minimal Coverage Mandate, came to two separate courts of appeals today. Each court had to consider how far the executive branch of government may go to rewrite a law. One court, or at least one three-judge panel, showed courage. They ruled in line with the Constitution. The other panel behaved like cowards. They handed down a specious decision in the government’s favor. In so doing they made a split between two judicial circuits. Once again the Supreme Court of the United States must contend with an issue they earlier tried to punt.

Thou shalt not steal – or…?

The Constitution. Jihad is incompatible with it, because jihad means treason.

Not a day goes by without someone asking why politicians of the two major parties cannot lay aside their different affiliations and “work together for the good of the country.” But anyone who must ask that question, might never understand why that is impossible, and probably just as well. Because the problem involves the kind of society we want to build and live in. In blunt fact, the members of one side want to steal from some for the unpaid benefit of others. And until they abandon this desire for organized stealing and covetousness, America will not have harmony in politics.
