Liberty Amendments – vain hope?

The Constitution is not dead

Our Constitutional form of government is in peril. The intent of the framers of the U.S. Constitution is ignored with impunity. The concept of liberty through limited government is lost on nearly all that we send to DC. The national debt spirals out of control. The powers reserved to the states and the people are usurped as though the 10th Amendment has somehow been repealed.

Impeachment: a viable option?

Editor’s Note: Over the weekend of December 28-29, 2013, the Democratic National Committee sent out an e-mail to its mailing list. In it they quoted several Republican Members of Congress who, they say, talked openly of impeachment of Barack Obama. They sought to use these quotes to move their base to flip the House. But Nicholas E. Purpura, below, makes the case for impeachment. For real.

The mainstream media are buzzing today with a breathless report. According to them, the NSA surveillance program got a new lease on life. Specifically, another federal judge, this time in New York State, said the massive NSA surveillance program does follow the Constitution. This other judge uses highly dubious reasoning. All he has done is set up a split between circuits. Thus the NSA surveillance program will come before the Supreme Court.

Yesterday, Governor Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) boasted about her favorite Christmas gift: a 9-mm Beretta PX4 Storm handgun. Supporters and opponents, both of Haley and of the Second Amendment, reacted quickly. The two sides obviously set the tone for her rematch against State Senator Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden, S.C.). But it also spoke volumes about the Second Amendment and what the people think of it.

What might it mean, to sue Obama? Specifically, thirty-five Members of the House of Representatives want to sue Barack Obama, in his capacity as President. They allege he will not follow the law, and thus breaks the Constitution.

How can you kill a liberty loving nation? There are many ways. Most of them have been used to slowly poison America but America still stands. Her resilience, spirit, and ingenuity have proven hard to break. However, there are two initiatives that have the capacity to literally kill America and Americans. One revolves around infringements against our right to keep and bear arms and defend ourselves, our families, and our country. The repercussions of the unconstitutional violations against our Second Amendment will not be discussed in this writing but its importance in the “Killing of America” demands mention. The second is Obamacare.

Can this really be happening?  Is it possible these past five years are just a frightful dream from which we may awaken as those poor souls living in the Twilight Zone never did?

In the news this past week there have been reports about the Supreme Court getting another chance to do the right thing concerning the unconstitutional “Un-Affordable Health Care Act”, previously known as ObamaCare.

Nuclear option: pushing the button

What difference does it make to her?

Now, President Obama can nominate the Three Stooges to the federal bench if he wants, and get away with it. Why? Because last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear option,” and the Senate voted 52 to 48 to change Senate rules by reducing the number of votes needed for cloture on nominees from 60 to 51 (which could include Vice President Joe Biden’s tie-breaking vote).

The practice of beheading dates back to Greek and Roman times. The Roman Empire used it for its own citizens while crucifying others. Beheading has been traditional in Europe since the Middle Ages. In Scandinavia, it was customary to behead a nobleman by sword (a noble weapon of war), but a commoner by axe. Beheading was abolished in Britain (1747), in Denmark (1892), in Sweden (1902), and in Norway (1905). With the exception of the UK, all European countries that previously beheaded have not totally abolished the death penalty.
