Lois Lerner not sorry?

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

This morning, Politico released their “exclusive” with Lois Lerner. (See also these secondary reports at The Daily Caller and from UPI.) She once served as Director for Tax-exempt Organizations at the IRS. While so serving she selectively applied the law. Tax collectors have done this since the first kings and emperors formed the first tax agencies. And she puffs herself up with pride for this.

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.

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:

IRS scandal: e-mails do exist

The IRS scandal made the news again yesterday. Now the IRS admits the “missing” e-mails still exist, and Lois Lerner did not lose them forever as she said. But the IRS now makes another excuse for not giving those e-mails to a judge. And as ever, no one looks at the worst part of the IRS scandal: whether any branch of government can investigate itself.

Abortion: birth of a feminist

March for Life 2013 Abortion v Guns

This article was written by [Dwight Kehoe] in response to and because of a conversation [he] had with a TPATH reader. His identity will, at his request, remain undisclosed.  After hearing the account of his meeting up with a long time friend and also the fact that TPATH has been doing research and interviews with many people related to this subject, [Mr. Kehoe] decided that his encounter, combined with data and research [by Mr. Kehoe and TPATH] would provide a vehicle for getting some  important information into print.

If America knew her history

The Constitution is not dead

 

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.

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.

Science, religion and law

Triceratops horridus as a scientist thinks it might have looked.

Must science always contradict religious tradition to stay valid? What happened to following evidence where it leads? Lawyers for a scientist who lost his job over his work will now ask that in court.

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.

Articles of Impeachment

Constitution Day meme. Can Liberty Amendments serve that purpose?

There has been much talk lately about removing the man now occupying the White House through impeachment. Is that just political posturing or is it a valid point that is well-taken?
