Syria: no case for war

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

The (de facto) President does not have a sound case for going to war in Syria. His actions show contempt for due process of (international) law. The evidence even that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had broken international law is lacking. Most of all, the Constitution grants to Congress, not to the President, the “power…to declare war.” Therefore Barack Obama pours contempt on the Constitution.

Move over Moses, for Chris Christie

Just when you think elected officials can’t get any more arrogant than they already are, along comes Chris Christie to prove you wrong.

Gun control: eyes wide open!

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

As the gun-control issue rages on – and rest assured, friends, it is raging on – gun-grabbing criminals tell one contrived or fabricated lie after another, acting under the guise of representing the people while they continue down the road of pushing their illegal agenda “forward” in the face of the American people.

Birthers make Levin ‘sick’?

Two days ago [August 19] on his radio show, Mark Levin, the “Great One” as he has been tagged by his good pal and fellow Cromwellian chameleon, Sean Hannity, finally showed himself for the buffoon he is. At a book signing, somewhere in the bowels of Red State New Jersey, the Constitutional expert, author of books and oratorical purveyor of all things conservative (well almost all things), Mr. Levin found himself being questioned by a real American. And he did not like it. Not one bit. In his ire and quite unintentionally, he let out a very interesting piece of information. It’s well known to all of us who have listened to Levin during the past few years that he holds in contempt anyone who would dare to question or confront him. His dislike for Progressives and liberals appears to have taken a back seat to those scoundrels he bitterly and sarcastically calls “Birthers”. We will instruct Mr. Levin as to just what a “birther” is a bit later and we will also teach the great one a bit about our Constitution and the history of its authorship.

This week I received my official “Truth About Republicans Survey” from Speaker of the House, John Boehner. In the opening line Mr. Boehner informs me that he urgently needs my help to “set the record straight.”

Obamacare: they have it all wrong

Here we go again, another useless e-mail requesting we “Click here” to “Blast Fax” Congress requesting they defund Obamacare. Does anyone think Congress cares about or even reads any FAX-blast or petition related to defunding Obamacare? Especially since they’re exempt from participating in the “Act”? (Or at least from paying out-of-pocket for it. – Ed.) The Center for Individual Freedom goes on to cite Cruz “…The only way we can win this debate is if the American people rise up and demand it.”

This week Mark Levin provided a lightning rod to movement Conservatives. He lent credibility to the “alternate” amendment process. While this issue is not new, it has been a point of contention among Constitutionalists who realize that our Republican form of government has gone down the tubes.

Constitution and citizenship challenge

For many months now we have listened as Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and many other conservative talk show hosts banter on and on about our precious Constitution. They advertise colleges such as Hillsdale and push books espousing the need to know, understand and abide by those founding documents. That is, until members of their audience actually do.

Liberty Amendments: a decision analysis

This week, Mark Levin, of the Landmark Legal Foundation, published his latest book, The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic. In so doing, Levin revives an often bitter debate among Constitutional conservatives. One side does not trust Congress to propose certain amendments they deem necessary to our liberty. The other side fears a repeat of the original Constitutional Convention. Which, they say, was a runaway convention that began with orders to amend further the Articles of Confederation and then destroyed that document. (Patrick Henry famously “smelt a rat” and did not attend that Convention.)

Uniform: Article 1 Section 8

The United States Constitution was written by men with a keen understanding of the darker side of human nature. They had lived through a time when government over-stepped its bounds and crossed the line from being fair and just to being tyrannical and elitists. This understanding and the failures of the Articles of Confederation guided them in writing a foundational document that has lasted through the centuries – our U.S. Constitution. As a result, many little gems can be found in this document that are often over-looked or misunderstood. The word uniform is such a gem. It appears in Article 1, Section 8, ¶1 of our Constitution, in the section that specifies the enumerated powers of government.
