Oathbreakers

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

Our Constitution is clear about what the federal government can and cannot do. Article 1, Section 8i, specifically defines the enumerated powers of the federal government. The rest of the Constitution was designed to keep tight reins on government and to lay out with great specificity what the powers are of each branch of government; how our representatives are to be elected; their qualifications; and a whole range of other operating procedures within our government. Our Founders did this because they understood the propensity of all governments and the people that run them to become power-crazed resulting in the continuous degeneration of the liberties of their citizens. They also had the foresight to include 10 amendments to the Constitution that protected the rights of our citizens that they deemed extraordinarily important, and which our government was to both protect and not infringe upon; hence we call these amendments our Bill of Rights.

America’s bloodless coup

This man knew how to lead a coup d'état.

The American Patriot in 2014 is a frustrated human being. Many have been sounding the alarm that our country is being torn asunder by the incompetent, the illegitimate, the opportunist, and the globalist. While all of this is true, the overriding message may be substantially worse. Our country isn’t being torn asunder; it is being taken over. Let me rephrase: it’s already been taken over.

Power of One

Power of One can beat RINOs

I continue to wrestle with the Gallup Poll reporti regarding the most liberal and the most conservative states in the Union. The poll stated that after the 2012 presidential election, the nation was 38% conservative as opposed to 23% liberal with the balance attributed mostly to moderates. The breakdown in New Jersey, notorious for being “blue” and #9 on Gallup’s 10 most liberal states list, is more than interesting. According to Gallup, the Garden State is 27.1% liberal and 37.6% moderate, which leaves 35.3% of the state conservative. The stats for Massachusetts, another notorious blue state and number 3 on Gallup’s most liberal list, is 38.1% moderate, 30.2% liberal and 31.7% conservative. The poll stats for these two states indicate that the liberals with their lower percentage rates dominate the conservatives. In other words, the minority is dominating the majority.

Thad Cochran will lose anyway

Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) can’t win the general election. His campaign did many disgusting and possibly illegal things. But suppose he wins the legal battles to come? Suppose no judge or jury can or will convict him or his campaign? He still can’t win. Because he laid himself wide-open to a common Democratic attack. So CNAV repeats: he will wind up hoist by his own petard.

Thad Cochran: specious story

Thad Cochran

The campaign staff of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) vigorously deny buying votes with direct cash payments. But the key witness in this affair has four text messages that speak to such payments. Yesterday the chief spokesman for the Thad Cochran campaign tried to explain them away. And his explanations are worse than specious.

Thad Cochran: more evidence

Ballot box. The Texas voter ID law will stop people from stuffing this.

Evidence continues to mount against Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). Yesterday a witness came forward and charged that Thad Cochran paid voters to vote in the Republican runoff. If this charge holds, then Thad Cochran could lose the nomination by default. He might also face expulsion from the United States Senate. Either way, he would find himself hoist by his own petard.

Chris McDaniel still fights

Ballot box. The Texas voter ID law will stop people from stuffing this.

Chris McDaniel, as everyone knows, “lost” the Mississippi Republican runoff election to Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). The quote marks have a reason behind them.  In fact, Thad Cochran won with at least 35,000 votes, and maybe 38,000, that normally would have gone to a Democrat. And if enough of them did go to one Democrat or another in the primary earlier this month, those votes can’t count in the runoff. And with that, Chris McDaniel might win after all.

Thad Cochran, election thief

Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran, Republican of Mississippi, seems to have won his primary against Challenger Chris McDaniel. Seems is the working word. In fact he stole the primary by using unethical and even illegal means. Neither here nor the Republican Party deserves the support of any conservative after this.

IRS scandal: par for the course

The latest hearings on the IRS scandal in the House of Representatives prove one thing above all. It is not that the Obama administration is the least transparent presidential administration in the history of the United States. We knew that already. Instead, it is that the American people lost their Republic the day three-fourths of the several States ratified the 16th Amendment, and Congress ordained and established the Internal Revenue Service.

Cover up 2.0

The original cover up fell apart when someone looked hard at it. No one's looking hard enough today.

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Cover up 2.0. Most of you, reading this today, will not recognize this as the second version. Cover up 1.0, for anyone who does remember, was Watergate. In the summer of 1972, Watergate stopped being the name of a famous hotel in Washington D.C. The name became a label for the most serious sort of government malfeasance. Watergate was about burglary, wiretapping, and theft of documents from political opponents and even from confidential professionals, specifically a psychiatrist. Cover up 2.0 is more serious. It is about using the taxing power to destroy political speech. But this time, Cover up 2.0 might succeed where Cover up 1.0 failed. The reason: the heroes that stopped Cover up 1.0 in 1972 1974 have no counterparts today.
