Third Amendment case law

The Constitution is not dead

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.

The new anti-ethics

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

Forty years ago last month, President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office. No American President had ever resigned before. None has done so since. Furthermore, several of Nixon’s men went to jail. And only because they lied about a third-rate burglary in a political rival’s office. The country had a strong sense of ethics then. (Or so we thought.) Where is that ethics today? Or has a new anti-ethics taken its place? A new moral code that rewards those who promise “bread and circuses,” and no one cares whether anyone in government lies or not?

Ted Cruz stands for Israel

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had to take a stand recently. He spoke to a group and mentioned Israel as America’s ally. Some attendees shouted him down, and he walked away. But what should infuriate any true Christian is: the group was a nominally Christian group.

Why hesitate before ISIS?

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

A new video surfaced September 2, 2014, called “The Second Message to America” showing the execution of 31 year old reporter, Steven Sotloff, the second American beheaded in front of the world by the same ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) executioner in last month’s video beheading James Foley, American war photojournalist, retaliation for U.S. air strikes in Iraq.

Fear of man

Seal of the Islamic State. Is Obama their secret ally, sowing complacency to give this State time to build?

All throughout history terrorists of many nationalities and many religious backgrounds have used fear to overcome those they seek to annihilate. In the 20th century the images of German concentration camps reeked with fear so palatable that it can still be felt in decades old film clips. Unfortunately, the inhumanity of man against man is nothing new. As long as man occupies this earth, you can be sure that those seeking to conquer others through persecution and terror will sometimes be victorious.

America v. Britain on Islam

The American flag. This Memorial day, remember one who fights for that flag and is now in a Mexican jail.

Call it A Tale of Two Leaders. Though one leads and the other doesn’t. America has a de facto President who refuses to lead. In fact he humiliated his country in the worst way short of a military defeat. In contrast, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has a real leader. This leader recognizes evil as it is, and does not fear to declare war against it.

Why I shake America awake

The Reichstag Fire. That kind of provocation is coming to America.

 

The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.

– Vladimir Lenin

We have found, again, in the center of Ferguson, Missouri, that provocateurs have been sent in to stir up domestic insurrection.

Ferguson: more confusion

OTher than police, what should governemnt do for people?

Yesterday Ferguson, Missouri got a new commander-on-the-scene in charge  of policing: Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol.  He and Chief Jackson of the Ferguson Police Department released a lot of information today. They must have thought they’d answer everyone’s questions. They thought wrong.

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?

Islam and Iraq in Prophecy

An illustration of prophecy

Since many do not study prophecy and others believe there isn’t any need to since we will all be swept away before the period referred to as “The Tribulation” begins, they do not recognize the prophetic events unfolding before our very eyes. Before proceeding, it is necessary to stress that we can recognize the signs of the times but we cannot accurately predict how end time prophecies will play out or the specific dates of these occurrences.
