    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...

"In response to the influx of migrants "from the American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq," Congress in 2005 gave President George W.

Vernon Assembly By Michael Farris "We are beginning to reach critical mass in our efforts to use Article V of the Constitution to rein in the power of the federal government. The Mount Vernon Assembly is one of the major steps in that effort." Read Michaels article and one immediately detects he has no intention to have a productive and respectful discussion on the issue by immediately demeaning his opponents, claiming they have increased both the loudness and shrillness of their long-standing claims Michael continues: Here is why their arguments are doomed to fail: 1....

    We are told that Obamas promise zones do not violate our Constitution. But no evidence is offered to substantiate that claim. So, let us look at some historical facts which indicate there is a long standing rule which applies to federal spending and it establishes Obamas promise zones are absolutely contrary to the legislative intent and letter of our Constitution. Under Obamas promise zones a number of cities would receive comprehensive federal assistance and receive preferential treatment to deal with the financial effects cause by the recession ___ a recession which has cause economic pain in each of the various...

    See: Obama to unveil promise zone economic initiative Joined by local leaders at the White House, Mr. Obama will officially announce the administrations first five promise zones -- pockets of the country that will receive comprehensive federal assistance after being especially hard-hit by the recession. The five zones will be located in San Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Southeastern Kentucky and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The administration aims to ultimately assist 20 such regions. Once again our President, instead of adopting national policies removing the iron fist of our federal government from Americas free enterprise system and its businesses...

    With the 2014 election just around the corner conservatives have the opportunity to win the hearts and minds of the American people by offering real tax reform. Have most Americans not witnessed the progressives disastrous and slavish experiment associated with the 16th Amendment and taxes levied on incomes without apportionment? Have we not recently seen how this very tax has been used during election time to punish and harass those who dare to speak out and against our despotic federal government? Have we not also witnessed for generations how this despicable tax is used by our federal government to...

    In the case James Obergefell v Theodore E. Wymyslo, M.D, Judge Timothy S. Black wrote: V.

  • Is signing up for Obamacare a legal trap to surrender your rights?

    I believe there is a principle of law under which a person may unwittingly waive constitutional rights. An example of this is when invoking the 5th Amendment right against self incrimination. One may waive this right by answering any questions rather than repeatedly invoking the right when asked questions. Does this apply to the Obamacare website, and once a person signs up, they actually place themselves under the federal governments jurisdiction with regard to Obamacare by signing up and in the process waive constitutionally protected rights? It seems to me that there is no provision in our federal Constitution granting...

    See: Rubio Seeks Obama's Support for Delay of Individual Mandate "Sen. Marco Rubio is urging President Barack Obama to support his bill that would delay Obamacares individual mandate until six months after the programs malfunctioning website is working normally." What I would like to ask Senator Rubio is: Under what provision of our Constitution is Congress authorized to impose a fine upon a citizen who exercises a fundamental right to purchase health insurance to meet their personal medical and health care needs and refuses federally approved health insurance? Does the Senator from the great State of Florida disagree with what...

    The statement that Obamacare is the law of the land seems to be repeatedly stated by conservative media personalities, such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etc.. It is almost as if they are intentionally trying to beat it into our heads that Obamacare is the law of the land. I have yet to find one conservative talk show host make an attempt to challenge that comment when there is a very, very strong case to be made that Obamacare is not the law of the land. The truth is, Obamacare is a legislative act, H.R.3590 titled the: Patient Protection and...

    If you do not consider the Affordable Health Care Act as part of Obamas desire to enslave a large segment of Americas population and place them under the heel of an iron fisted government, then ask yourself, what is the object of slavery? Is it not an act in which the fruits of one persons labor is forcefully taken and used for the personal economic wants and desires of another? Those who have studied the Obamacare subsidy schedule quickly realize the very object is to take the bread which productive working class citizens have earned and redistribute it to those...

    I heard Mark Levin this evening once again encouraging the call for an Article V convention purportedly to restore our constitutionally limited system of government. What Mark Levin does not caution his listening audience about is, that we the people, ordinary productive American Citizens, would not be in charge of that convention. In fact, Mark Levins Article V Convention if called would be controlled by the very people who now cause our miseries which are the various state Legislatures and Governors who work in concert with our federal government to enslave and plunder the wealth which Americas businesses, industries and...
