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.

Obamacare: split decision

The gavel: a symbol of justice and punishment for corrupt officials.
Print Friendly

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?

Disturbing information has surfaced regarding MRAP and BearCat military vehicles being used to patrol the streets of our local communities – some with populations under 7,000. The MRAPs (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles) were designed to survive improvised explosive device attacks and ambushes. The BearCats (Ballistic Engineered Armoured Response Counter Attack Trucks, a product of the Lenco corporation) are a subset of MRAPs. They have seen service in special weapons and tactics (SWAT) squads, homeland security, counter-terrorism, force protection, and military policing missions. Willing police departments and sheriffs’ offices have enjoyed their new free toys without giving a thought to any strings that may be attached in the future but the protesting citizens (now labeled as “domestic terrorists” in Concord, NH) view these vehicles as highly objectionable and intimidating.

King Obama?

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

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.

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 Constitution is not dead
Print Friendly

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.
