Immigration reform: legal bribery

Bribery in immigration reform isn't done quite this way, but the results are the same.

The immigration reform bill now percolating through the Senate will solve nothing. If it passes, the United States will have yet another constituency for politicians and employers (or labor leaders, or both) to exploit. The Gang of Eight know this. For that reason, they resorted to out-and-out bribery, that politicians call “pork,” to get it through the Senate. And yesterday and today, a big alternative-media organ called them on it and made them squeal like – well, like stuck pigs.

IRS scandal should surprise no one

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

Yesterday the scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service broke wide-open. Angry members of a key subcommittee (including half its Democrats!) took turns denouncing the agency and especially its leaders. But few of them got the true point. The IRS scandal should surprise no one. Least of all should it surprise any in Congress. For they, more than anyone else, created the monstrous tax code that needs a monstrous agency to enforce it.

IRS scandal makes case for tax reform

The IRS scandal grows by the hour. Every hour shows more proof that the Internal Revenue Service behaved badly, and always has. But people aren’t looking at the real scandal. The real scandal is a tax code that needs an IRS to enforce it. Our tax laws let, even make, the IRS ask things about you that are none of anyone’s business but yours. Such laws are not fit for governing a free people.

State legislators – an open letter

Dear State Legislator,

During the past several months I have attended a few of the hearings held in the capitol as one committee after another sat in judgment of my rights as an American citizen and debated as to what extent they would unconstitutionally infringe on the Bill of Rights.

Traitors among us

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

Traitors can come from a myriad of places – but none are more effective than those foxes that have been entrusted to watch the henhouse. We can debate if they exist in America and who they may be – with the man now occupying the White House being the first on many lists – however, there may be others that also qualify but slip under the radar.

Pat Toomey – an open letter

The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution

To Senator Pat Toomey:

First, thank you for posting the proposed “Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act” on your website. Being able to read the entire bill helps in the understanding of its implications. TPATH has spent a great amount of time reading it and reverting back and forth between the many titles and sections of existing law that this legislation would implicate.

Leadership and representation

I can’t speak for other states, since I’ve lived in New Jersey all my life. However, I can speak about a very disturbing trend that seems to have taken over the Garden State: lack of leadership.

Dianne Feinstein ignores Constitution

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) finally had a colleague bring her up short on how much she knew about the Constitution. In answer she said, “I am not a sixth grader!” Senator Feinstein, if you are indeed not a sixth grader, stop acting like one.

Senator Dianne Feinstein wants your guns. She has said so. But now she says outrageously that, under current law, one human being can hunt another.

Maxine Waters and other con artists

Last week we posted the facts about the sequester. This week the political hysteria continues as the media, Fox News included, and big government leftists march forward with fear tactics and just plain lies. Then, Maxine Waters, who actually is dumber than Joe Biden, announced that the cuts in government growth will cost 170 million jobs. Someone may like to point out to this jewel of colossal ignorance, America only has 140 million people working right now. Which by the way is about 2 million less than when the usurper took office.
