21st Century Racketeers

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Back in the days of Al Capone, racketeers could usually be found in Speakeasies or clandestinely taking numbers on dimly lit street corners. Today’s racketeers can be more difficult to identify since they don’t carry Tommy guns in violin cases or go by the names of Scarface or Pretty Boy Floyd anymore. As times changed, so did their mode of operation. The racketeers of the 21st century may be charming but they are every bit as nefarious as their 20th century counterparts.

Eric Holder to Supreme Court?

Supreme Court rules for Hobby Lobby

Does de facto President Barack Obama want to appoint Eric Holder to the Supreme Court of the United States? Chuck Norris fears so. But he might want to take heart. Insurmountable resistance might come from a quarter no one expected.

Holder: try and convict him

Eric Holder

Proven to be a faithful criminal with his little cronies under the Clinton administration, Attorney General Eric Holder has now been exposed once again by showing the American people how truly corrupt he is. If he is not stonewalling, then he is attempting to cover for some unlawful scandal this criminal administration has committed. Now he is even attempting to run from what he is responsible for by attempting to get out before being held accountable.

Eric Holder Resigns

Eric Holder, Obama’s attack-dog Attorney General, resigned today. Everyone knows this by now. He decided it suddenly and with about six hours’ warning. But he did not say why he resigned. He has four possible reasons for resigning. All have to do with his hostility to the Constitution. They also reflect his desire, that Obama shares, to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America.

The Federal gun law of 1994 is about to expire.  This law made it illegal to manufacture or own a semi-automatic weapon that would let the user handle and fire the weapon skilfully.  It limited the magazine capacity for these weapons while not limiting how many magazines one could own.

America at war with God

Bradlee Dean discusses what poverty in America often looks like.

 

And what cause soever shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass.

– 2 Chronicles 19:10

We can see in America today that the church is countering their very purpose on this earth. Rather than the light reproving the darkness (Ephesians 5:11), we now have the church spreading the darkness as they attempt to put out the light.

Third Amendment case law

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

The Nevada case of Mitchell v. City of Henderson still slogs through the Nevada Federal District Court. This case has one unusual feature. It accuses police in two cities of quartering themselves in two private houses without the consent of their owners. This would breach the Third Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which deals with quartering of soldiers. The defendant city officials say police officers are not soldiers. But the Mitchells actually have a thirty-two-year-old precedent on their side. That case says one need not be an active-duty U.S. armed service member to be a “soldier” under the Constitution.

Second Amendment in N.J.

The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution

It is time for the Executive and Legislative branches of New Jersey to adhere to the U.S. Constitution. No, it is long past the time.  For far too long we the citizens of the State of New Jersey have been victims of a progressive police state.  “We the People” are being denied the civil right to protect ourselves, our families and our property, as a direct result of unconstitutional behavior and legislation enacted by our elected and appointed officials.

Wrong number Holder

Eric Holder

A senior aide to Attorney General Eric Holder, late Friday afternoon, called his buddies on the Democratic staff of the House Oversight Committee. He shared a scheme to release only part of the information the committee’s chairman wants from the Justice Department. And then he realized: he had dialed the wrong number.

Gov. Christie, who are you?

Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?

Dear Governor Christie: the scope and intent of this open letter is not meant to disparage you unfairly.  But…in respect to all which has occurred during your tenure, what you have done and not done, things you have said and not said, these two questions beg for answers:
