  • Obama's desire to close down GITMO may be about his nefarious alliances.

    Looking past the distraction of releasing terrorists from Guantanamo, there seems to be another reason for Obama wanting to close it down. The Guantanamo Naval Station is an important asset connected to the defense of the United States and helps America keep an eye on the communist government of Cuba which aligned itself with Russia during the 1960s which then imported nuclear weapons into Cuba. Those who do not recall the Cuban Missile Crisis of the 1960s need to read: The Cuban Missile Crisis and Threat of Nuclear War The Guantanamo Naval Station is a strategic outpost on a landmass...

    See: Trump: Republicans ‘threw in the towel’ on spending bill December 18, 2015 "Trump on Friday blasted the spending bill, saying it would result in "higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare." "Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests," Trump said. "How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes...

    See: Can Governors Legally Block Refugees from Coming to Their States? "In response to the influx of migrants "from the American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq," Congress in 2005 gave President George W. Bush unlimited authority to admit people for humanitarian purposes, noted Judge Napolitano. And that has since been passed over to President Obama, he added. "Here, he has the absolute lawful authority – may not like the way he’s exercising it, but he has it," said the judge. "To admit people for political asylum and humanitarian purposes." What Judge Napolitano and Foxnews ignore is, Congress cannot assume powers...

    See Abbott: Texas to Block Syrian Refugee Resettlement "Gov. Greg Abbott said Monday that Texas would refuse Syrian refugees after a terrorist attack in Paris killed more than 120 people. "Given the tragic attacks in Paris and the threats we have already seen, Texas cannot participate in any program that will result in Syrian refugees,any one of whom could be connected to terrorism, being resettled in Texas," Abbott wrote in a letter to President Barack Obama." I contend that the power to regulate immigration is a power exercised by the original 13 States and preexisted our existing Constitution. I further...

    Both the Republican Party Leadership and the Democrat Party Leadership have one thing in common when it comes to tax reform. They both want to keep alive the socialist and failed experiment of allowing Congress to lay and collect taxes calculated from profits, gains, salaries, wages, tips, and other lawfully earned incomes. Of course, I'm sure a thinking person such as Carly Fiorina knows that our Congress critters love this particular tax because it not only allows our Washington Establishment to engage in all sorts of nefarious and corruptible schemes to fatten the fortunes of friends and donors, but also...

    . If Obamas deal with the terrorist government of Iran is a treaty, then, by our Constitution, it needs a two thirds approval vote in the Senate to be finalized. In discussing this issue, it is important to note a fundamental rule of constitutional construction: 16 Am Jur 2d Constitutional law Meaning of Language Ordinary meaning, generally Words or terms used in a constitution, being dependent on ratification by the people voting upon it, must be understood in the sense most obvious to the common understanding at the time of its adoption__ (my emphasis) So, in determining if Obamas deal...

    Well, I see Ben Carson, just like a number of our establishment Republican candidates, is supporting a continuance of the socialist experiment of laying and collecting a federal tax calculated from profits, gains, salaries and other lawfully earned incomes ___ and he even has invoked God in support of his proposed damnation! In addition to circumventing our Constitutions command requiring all direct taxes to be apportioned among the States, Carsons tax reform keeps a patently evil power in our federal governments hands that has been used over and over by our federal government for nefarious purposes, and has proven to...

    Now that Donald Trump has the American Peoples attention, will he support tax reform which will end the nefarious and slavish socialist experiment allowing Congress to lay and collect taxes calculated from profits, gains salaries and other lawfully earned incomes? Will he work for real tax reform and move us to a federal tax system which taxes consumption as our founders intended? Carly Fiorina was correct when she said about our current system The complexity and lack of transparency only benefits the powerful and connected while crushing small businesses and innovation. The result is crony capitalismbecause only big businesses can...

    See Boehner doles out new punishment Boehner allies have been retaliating against rank-and-file members who voted against a procedural motion earlier this month, nearly derailing a major trade package favored by Republican leaders that is set to clear the House on Thursday. Our Constitution is crystal clear that any deals cooked up by our president must receive a two thirds approval vote by our national legislature to be binding law. See Article 2, Section 2, Clause 2: The President shall have power "... by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of...

    CLICK HERE for the list of House Republicans who spat upon our Constitution today and ignored its expressed requirement for a two thirds approval vote for any deals cooked up by our president with foreign powers. In effect, these Republicans have unconstitutionally lowered the two thirds requirement to a simple majority to approve deals consummated by our president with foreign powers and engaged in the same despotic action the President has engaged in when signing Executive Orders that violate statutory law and/or our Constitutions written provisions. These Republican turncoat and lying scoundrels tell us that the Pacific Rim deal is...

    SEE: Critical of Obamas past actions, GOP now wants to give him more power on trade Republicans have consistently railed at President Obamas exercise of his executive authority, disparaging him as an emperor who has ignored Congress on immigration, climate and Cuba. Now that they fully control the Congress, those same Republicans critics are on the verge of handing the president expansive new powers to circumvent those who want to stand in his way on trade. GOP leaders in both chambers are close to introducing legislation that would grant the administration broad authority to finalize one of the largest free-trade...

    SEE: Cruz: Abolish the IRS January 13th , 2015 Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said Monday that Republicans should take advantage of their control of Congress to abolish the Internal Revenue Service. We need to pass fundamental tax reform making our tax code simpler, flatter, fairer, he said Monday at Heritage Actions 2015 conservative policy summit. And Ill tell you, the single most important tax reform, we should abolish the IRS. What is discouraging is, the above article goes on to say that Senator Ted Cruz acknowledged its not really possible to abolish the IRS or adopt a flat tax...

    SEE: GOP targets budget process for tax reform 1/13/15 The quiet push, led by South Dakota Sen. John Thune, seeks to use the potent tool known as budget reconciliation to give both the GOP and President Barack Obama the sweeping victory on tax policy that business groups want, which could include a significant cut in corporate tax rates as well as provide funding for a long-term transportation bill. This is what happens when Republican voters elect Washington Establishment candidates to office. They use their power to manipulate a corruptible system of taxation to meet the Chamber of Commerces demands rather...

    When it comes to Common Core, Jeb Bush thumbs his nose at our Constitution and is an advocate of Common Core which subtly, and in violation of our Constitution, is designed to have our federal government seize control over public school systems established under state constitutions. The control is acquired by dolling out federal revenue to the states for a function not authorized by our Constitution with strings attached to accomplish the whims and fancies of political appointees assigned to the despotic Federal Department of Education, which ought to be closed down, not enlarged! An example of how federal control...

    See: Obama: Boehner's lawsuit is 'a stunt' President Barack Obama called House Speaker John Boehner's plans to file a lawsuit over the President's use of executive action "a stunt," in an interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos. The obvious truth is, Boehners threatened lawsuit is another clever strategy by the Republican Establishment to assist Obama in his fundamental transformation of America while pretending to be fighting against it. Boehners lawsuit is basically the same strategy which was pulled when 26 State Attorney Generals file suit against Obamacare. Instead of these AGs filing their case directly in the Supreme...

    While the borders of the various United States are being invaded by the poverty stricken, poorly educated, unskilled and infectious disease carrying populations of Central America countries, our President is not only assisting in this invasion by bussing these aliens into a number of the united States, but he is also celebrating this ongoing invasion with impunity!

    SEE: The GOP Establishment Wants to Run on Fixing -- Not Repealing Obamacare In David Jolly's campaign, he didn't say "repeal" Obamacare. He said "fix" it. But the Republicans are taking this thing to, " No, no, no, no! He said to fix it." The Republican establishment obviously has a campaign game plan involving Obamacare, and it does not include repealing it, folks. The Republican establishment apparently doesn't want to campaign on repealing it. They want to campaign on fixing it. What Rush Limbaugh may have missed and has been obvious to me from the very beginning is, when...

    On this evenings show, 5/23/2014, Mark Levin talked about the Great Compromise of the Convention of 1787, but he never mentioned how the apportionment of both taxation and representation became the moving parts of the Great Compromise. So, let me fill in the parts Mark Levin left out. During the framing of our existing Constitution the question of how each State would be represented in Congress became a matter of heated debate and deciding upon rules which fixed each States representation created an impasse during the Convention. On July 2nd of the Convention Sherman of Connecticut remarked: We are now...
