King Obama?

The Obama rainbow flag, a classic false front for American youth

Does Barack Obama hope to make himself King Obama? At a recent international meeting, Barack Obama took pains to deny this. When one has to take such pains to deny an unpleasant thing, any observer must suspect this thing is true after all. Nowhere is this truer than in the case of Barack Obama, de facto President of the United States.

Out of sight, out of mind

Bradlee Dean discusses what poverty in America often looks like.

Barack Obama unashamedly did his best to save face by showing up at Arlington National Cemetery last weekend, with the hopes that you would believe that he supports American ideals, along with our boys and girls in uniform. All the while, he spends his allotted time (to America’s own demise) destroying and desecrating their memories by trampling the Constitution they sacrificed themselves to magnify.

Martial law tools in place

During his campaign, de facto President Barack Obama promised to build a civilian security force at least as well armed as the military. Lovers of liberty have feared his intent to declare martial law ever since. Yesterday a report appeared in a major newspaper, giving the American people fresh reason to fear such martial law.

Liberty and prosperity in NJ?

Putting aside the many regulations, property taxes, highway tolls, income tax and sales tax, just to name a few areas where New Jersey leads the country in its attack on Prosperity, the LIBERTY part of the state’s motto continues to be in the sights, so to speak, of New Jersey’s leftist legislative body.

Dear Dr.  Ben Carson,

First of all I would like to tell you how much you are admired and respected by millions upon millions of Americans.  At that “Breakfast Dinner” where you spoke, the people of this country were blessed to be able to see and hear, for the first time since Obama took office, a person stand up and say what needed to be said.

Taxation without representation

The term “taxation without representation” is commonly associated with our War for Independence. It was one of many grievances the Colonists held against the King of England for the three taxes imposed upon the Colonists. Today we are also suffering from this tyrannical activity but nary can a complaint be heard – possibly because it has gone unnoticed. Unfortunately, “unnoticed” does not mean unpracticed.

Right to bear arms and States

I am not a Constitutional Scholar but I do have comprehensive reading abilities. With all the new laws popping up nationwide that regulate our right to bear arms, it occurred to me that a basic reading of the Constitution requires that an amendment be passed in order to make these laws constitutionally valid. Therefore, I embarked on a quest to find this amendment, and alas, none could be found. I’m being facetious of course. As a Constitution-carrying American citizen, I am fully aware of the fact that such an amendment does not exist.

Attorney General gets rough treatment?

Eric Holder, or at least his aide, got caught with his pants down.

There may be good reasons why Attorney General Eric Holder may be finding himself in contempt of Congress. He is considered by at least one Justice Department lawyer to be the worst person to hold the position since the disgraced John Mitchell. But that didn’t stop the AG from complaining to Al Sharpton about his treatment at the 16th Annual National Action Networks Convention last month.

Sheriffs, guts, and the Constitution

Your local sheriff might be all that stands between you and a coup d'état.

Although little media attention has been given to the absentee sheriff of Clark County, Nevada, there are signs in the background of the militia pictures that read: “Where is the Sheriff?” The elusive Sheriff Douglas C. Gillespie’s name is also difficult to find on Clark County’s sheriff’s websitei. This once revered Sheriff received the prestigious Sheriff of the Year Award from the National Sheriff’s Association as recently as March 18, 2014, but in April of 2014 he would be more deserving of the Casper Award for Sheriffs that Disappear When Needed Most.

BLM v. the Constitution

The Constitution is not dead

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has created controversies in two States. The Cliven Bundy ranch affair, or the Battle of Bunkerville, is one. The BLM trying to seize 90,000 acres of bottomland on the Texas side of the Red River is another. The legal standing of the BLM is different in the two cases. If the relevant statutes are valid, the BLM would prevail against Cliven Bundy. The BLM could not prevail against Texas ranchers who have deeds and titles to those 90,000 acres. But the BLM is on far shakier ground than that. Its very reason for being goes against the Constitution.
