Recall NJ – a deafening silence

Senator Robert Menendez, who enjoys the protection of a sycophantic media

Since Recall NJ embarked on a campaign to recall Senator Robert Menendez that was thwarted by the NJ Supreme Court, many have wondered why the organization did not take an active role in defeating the incumbent NJ Senator this fall. The answer is simple. There was no one deserving of the organization’s support.

Karl Rove: establishment axe man

Karl Rove

For several years now all we have heard about the GOP Establishment was, “there is no such thing.” And who led that charge, day in and day out?  None other than the “Executioner” himself.  The soft-spoken, deliberate and refined, Karl Rove.

Pennsylvania hopeful: our hope

PGA and politicians take note! And everyone else, consider taking out some insurance.

Much of the nation’s attention focuses on the presidential campaigns. But the Senate races are almost as important. Given the track record of the man now occupying the White House, it is reasonable to assume that should he win a second term (God forbid!); we can expect more national destruction. In such a horrific situation, our best defense would be a Republican Senate And today I direct your attention to a key Senate primary in Pennsylvania

Is Senate abdicating Constitutional authority?

The Constitution, which sets forth the principle of rule of law, defines what is unconstitutional, and guarantees freedom of speech and other liberties of a Constitutional republic, and also describes the impeachment power. (How many know of the Jewish roots of this document?) Hypocrisy threatens Constitutional government. Could Israel use a constitution like this? More to the point: would a Convention of States save it, or destroy it? (Example: civil asset forfeiture violates the Constitution.) Quick fixes like Regulation Freedom Amendments weaken it. Furthermore: the Constitution provides for removing, and punishing, a judge who commits treason in his rulings. Furthermore, opponents who engage in lawfare against an elected President risk breaking the Constitution.

A bill recently reported out of a key Senate committee would vest the authority to appoint several hundred executive-branch officers in the President alone—and not all those officers are “inferior” enough to merit this consideration.

S. 679, the Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act of 2011, would change multiple current laws that establish several officers in the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, and Justice. The law strikes the phrase “by and with the advice and consent of the Senate” from the Presidential instruction to “appoint” those officers. The Heritage Foundation estimates that this would affect “several hundred” officers in these departments.
