  • Pastors Get Heated Over Trump Meeting: At Least ‘Prostitutes Get Money,’ You Got Nothing!

    The point is they have been issued their license, and if I remember correctly, they got married. They are no longer a party to this issue because their “harm” has been resolved. They want Kim to sign her name to the licenses in order to make her capitulate to them.

    The Fed court has no more authority, (if it ever had any), over this since the legality of the licenses is a matter purely for the state court.

  • Constitutionality of Planned Parenthood Defunding Plans

    As the Supreme Court said in the ACA case, the Congress can establish a program and give the states a choice to join or not, (think Medicare expansion). The states can not be coerced into accepting the terms of the program but once they agree to take the money they are stuck with the rules attached. If the states voluntarily accept the program it is not unconstitutional. I think that no state should get involved in these programs and instead demand that the Feds send the money back to the states to use as they see fit.

    The states are not on totally constitutional grounds on this. They took the Title X, (etc), funds with all the strings attached. This is contract law 101. The Feds can withhold the funds, which I think is good for the states so that they cut the Fed strings. Some funds that the Feds want to withhold may not be legal for them to withhold, but that will be up to the courts to determine.

    You are correct. I spent almost 5 years as a GS-11 doing security background investigations for DIS and any lies on the security questionnaire or found during the background investigation would, at the minimum, result in months of delays in the completion of the case. One guy I investigated was up for a TS at a warehouse that handled materials for a secret aircraft manufacturer and lied about his wife’s background, (she was a Vietnamese refugee), and about his receiving welfare money for her under her maiden name. He never got the clearance because of this.

    Then you must be against a grocery store clerk, (muslim), refusing to check out bacon, or a taxi driver refusing to take a passenger with a service dog.

    The Supreme Court has said that the employer must make reasonable accommodations, such as having another clerk in the office issue the license. Many of the clerks have asked for that type of accommodation but the Governor has refused that option.

    My take on this is that Texas is saying that the parents can’t prove who they are when they go to get a copy of the BC. The birth is registered but they can’t get a copy. One SSN scam has been to get BC’s of dead, newly born and children. The scammers then get the SSN’s associated with the BC and use it for work.

    Guaranteed if states get out of the marriage licensing business, The Dems will just make marriage a federal license and that will nullify all other marriage related laws such as polygamy, age etc. However, that would also make the Congress have to deal with age of consent, numbers of “partners”, familial relationships, etc. And then the SC would have to deal with the 9th and 10th Amendment since they would be in violation of the constitution as it relates to states rights and federalism.

    I can see two reaons for asking for this.

    1, she gets two trials going at the same time with different judges, (hoping to get a liberal judge for the second trial and a conviction or plea bargain).

    2, By splitting up the defendents she can offer immunity for the two defendents in order to lie about the facts against the other four.

    The defense would be stupid to accept this since if even one defendent is considered by the jury to have been overcharged or not responsible for Gray’s death the likelyhood of the others getting acquitted is higher, (or at least a low misdemeanor conviction for them.

    Notice that the MSM is now coming out with various stories with the “GOP will get the blame for ACA ruling” meme all at the same time. This case was strickly about a statute not the constitutionality of the ACA in whole.

    Chief Justice Roberts saved the ACA from being ruled unconstitional, (wrongly I believe), but in accordance with Supreme Court precedence to save the law from being unconstitional if at all possible. The statute does not get the same deference.

    This ruling, if it goes as predicted, will be a major election year issue which the Dems can not run away from. The MSM is having a fit trying to make the GOP own the deceision but that will not happen. Even the liberal Ron Fournier agrees that the Dems will own this lock, stock and barrel.

    What I loved was the Judge throwing Obama’s own words back at him. He cited Obama telling a Hispanic organization that if the Border Patrol folks did not comply with his orders there would be “consequences”. The judge stated that that statement made it abundantly clear that there is no “discretion” allowed by the agents for deportation of illegal aliens under current immigration laws. The judge made clear that DHS is required to post the new DAPA and revised DACA policy in the Federal Register under the APA, thus requiring a comment period for the public to make their views known.

    What a slam to the Administration.Read the decision. It is a good read, and not long.

    I would suggest that every business owner that provides an “artisitic” service such as wedding cake design, wedding floral arrangements, etc. should cease providing delivery and set-up for any of these kinds of events. Do a contract that says you will provide the product, (In the case of cakes without personalized writings and ornaments). My contract would require the customer to arrange the pick-up and set-up of the product at their expense. Photographers are at a totally different situation and I do not know how to structure that resolution. As for other professionals such as medical providers who do not wish to be forced to perform abortion or sex change surgery, (yes this will be next), I would suggest a sign on the business door and on all paperwork that the patient has to sign that makes it clear that these are not services that they offer at any time.

  • White House: Obama Finds Religious Freedom Laws ‘Unthinkable’

    04/01/2015 7:48:07 PM PDT · 88 of 106
    usnavy_cop_retired to jessduntno

    Several leftist articles I have read in the last few days made a point of what is truly behind all of this. Basically their point is that the Federal RFRA was passed to protect the minority religious freedom but that it should not be extended to the majority. Christians/Jews are the majority so they should not have this protection.

    They also object to individuals having a right to use the RFRA as a defense in private civil suits. So if a person sues you for not providing a service that you object to based on your deeply held religious conviction they don’t want you to force them to prove that you don’t have a 1st ammendment right, (and a RFRA backed right), to refuse service to them.

    A prime example would be an OB/GYN who is a devout Catholic being sued because he refused to perform an abortion. They want to destroy him/her but if the OB/GYN has the right to argue that his/her deeply held religious convictions prevent him/her from performing an abortion the complainant may lose the suit.

    Keep in mind that in “civil rights” lawsuits under federal law, (section 1989), there is no limit on financial damages.

    He has executive experience.

    Running a 4,000 person agency maybe not the same as running a state but it does require one to use managing skills that community orginizing does not.

    He has shown he is able to meet budget goals, manage personnel, (some, I’m sure, had to be terminated by him), and he had to determine which lawyers were best suited for which case and then monitor the progress of the cases being pursued.

    He also would have had the final say on what cases to not pursue because of budget and personnel considerations.

    Finally, from Google search: Prior to becoming Solicitor General, he served as the Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, as Associate Deputy Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice, and as Domestic Policy Advisor on the 2000 Bush-Cheney campaign.

    James Rogen, (sic), from Fox News reported that Dept of State IT insiders told him that Hillary kept pressing them to approve an Iphone for her use instead of the BlackBerry that is Govt issue.

    Why?

    Because Apple’s encryption is unbreakable and they will not give out their encryption key to the Feds.

    If she had the Iphone to use for official business there would be no way for the Dept of State to look into the phone and find out what she had sent to folks without a .Gov account. Thus, no reason to keep the private server.

    Since the IT folks refused, at least twice, to let her use the Iphone she had to keep the private server up so that what she did on the internet, and who she emailed, could not be seen by the “peasants”, (us).

    usnavy_cop_retired to leapfrog0202

    When OBAMACARE was first being discussed, (before it passed), I said that DOD wanted it because that would give them a chance to dump Tricare beneficiaries onto the private sector and keep the money for weapons instead.

    The problems that will ensue if they do this is active duty family members will be forced to travel to see doctors and come up with the high deductibles and co-pays. Add to that the frequent transfers to another state with the need to apply again for insurance on the state exchange, (or Federal Exchange for that state), and you will see many cases of lapsed coverage and financial strain caused by that.

    Finally, how do they handle dependents overseas? Especialy where there is no military hospital. Currently Tricare Global remote Overseas,(Prime ), contracts with local providers and hospitals for care for active duty and family members and Tricare pays the bill.

    Then you have the issue of Tricare Standard overseas for retirees and their dependents. We would be left without any medical insurance, (which we earned and which was promised to us). US insurance companies won’t/can’t provide the coverage overseas because of all the rules of the different countries involved. Will DOD provide us with a “premium” in order to purchase local health insurance? Most overseas health inshurance companies have a 60-65 age limit for insurability.

    As much as I dislike Tricare Standard overseas, (which in most cases requires us to file claims at the level required by US insurance companies and which locals doctors and hospital are unable to document at that level), at least we are getting better at “perfecting” our claims to the US standards, albeit with a lot of research on the internet to get the correct medical terminology and details required. Losing Tricare would leave us in limbo and the US Government would be breaking the promise of this benefit that we earned.

    usnavy_cop_retired to luvbach1

    Wrong. A warrant is not needed if the reason for entering your home is Exigent circumstances. In other words they had a call, (in your case, I assume), that someone was in danger of physical injury. Or, they are in “hot pursuit” of a person believed to have committed a felony. otherwise, they need a warrant to enter.

    When they arrive at the door demand they produce a warrant before you let them in. Once in your house anything in plain view, (if illegal, sarc), is evidence that allows them to search more.

    Do not allow the cops inside unless they have a warrant!

    If the warrant says a gun, they cannot look in an ice cube tray for it since it is not reasonable to find a gun there, (even if you have stolen diamonds hidden there that evidence would be thrown out by the court).

    If they are searching for a person they cannot look in the dresser drawers and in the kitchen drawers because it is not reasonable for a person to hide in them. Nor can they look for a person under the couch cushions.

    Yea, I’m being silly with the examples but these have been reasons to exclude evidence illegally obtained by cops that have tried to go “beyond” the parameters of the search warrant.

    Remember, a warrant must detail what is being looked for and what is to be searched. If the warrant says to search the house, it does not include the car in the driveway, etc.

    I spent 20 years as a military “cop” specializing in investigations and interrogations. I loved it when the suspect wanted to try to convince me he was innocent. trust me, it never works.

    My advice to anyone suspected of a crime or involved in a physical incident is “KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT”. A good investigator will already know what the basic story is and anything you say can then be twisted to make you look guilty.

    Insist on a search warrant and never waive your rights. make the the cops get a warrant if they have probable cause. And call a lwayer immediately. if you don’t have one you know, have the number of legal aid available and use it.

    Back in the early 60’s while living in Lindsey California, in the fall, I would go around town and offer to climb the trees and knock down “all” the leaves so that there would be only one time that the leaves needed to be raked up. I made a fortune, (or it seemed for a 12 year old kid). I had lots of money for Christmas presents, (and snacks). No one thought that I was breaking any laws.

    I have mowed lawns in the summer, pulled weeds for a fast food restaurants, (which resulted in a full time summer job). I worked as an unofficial assistant manager for KFC as a 17 year old High School student, (40 + hours a week, which was against the labor laws), and made the weekend bank drops, hired and fired employees and ordered all the supplies because the “manager” wanted to race cars from Friday night until Sunday night.

    I have never been without a source of income. Even when unemployed I was using a friends tow truck to pick up junk cars from peoeple’s property and selling them to the salvage yards, (average sale was $200 per car, for which I gave my friend $100 for the use of the tow truck).

    Taking away the desire of the youth to earn a little spending money and to learn the lesson of hard work is a travesty. We need kids with the drive to work for what they want.

    Eventually, but I don’t think anyone has standing until the counties have been picked and someone is ordered to be tested. Since this is a Pilot program the “statewide” application is not there and no one has had their rights violated until they have been ordered to be tested. I can see someone alleging that he/she may be ordered to be tested, but that would entail having to admit to drug use as their reason to not want to be tested.

    At least that is the way i see it.

    The easy answe for many corporations is to hire people under the DACA or the new amnesty. They are not eligible to purchase health care on the exchanges and can only get health care as part of their employment benefit packages. Thus, to avoid the penalty you hire the non-eligible illegals and designate tham as not eligible for your employer insurance.

    Here is an explanation of what health care DACA people are eligible for;

    What are the health care restrictions released by the Obama administration on August 28, 2012?

    The Obama administration released two official policy announcements on August 28, 2012, that affect the eligibility for federal health care programs of individuals granted deferred action under the administration’s “deferred action for childhood arrivals” (DACA) policy. The policies announced on August 28 — issued as federal regulations and guidance — do not affect any other immigration category and do not affect individuals granted deferred action apart from the DACA policy.

    The announcement changes federal rules for DACA-eligible individuals by excluding them from affordable health insurance options that are available to other individuals with deferred action. See below for more details.

    Before the changes announced on August 28, some DACA-eligible individuals would have gained access to more options for affordable and comprehensive health insurance. Youth granted DACA who are under 21 years of age or pregnant and who are otherwise eligible would have been able to apply for free or low-cost health insurance through a state’s Medicaid program or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) in about half of the states. In some states, pregnant women will continue to have access to federal health insurance coverage under CHIP regardless of their immigration status. (See the NILC table “Medical Assistance Programs for Immigrants in Various States” (PDF).)

    After 2014, DACA-eligible individuals would have had additional options to buy affordable health insurance in their state as a result of federal health care reform. (The health care reform law’s name is the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Sometimes it is referred to as “Obamacare.”)

    As a result of the August 28 changes, DACA-eligible individuals will remain excluded from almost all affordable health insurance options. They will be treated as though they are undocumented, even though they are otherwise considered lawfully present and are eligible for a work permit and a Social Security number. Unless their state has established a state-funded health coverage program, their only opportunity to obtain affordable, comprehensive health insurance may be through employment.
    When do the restrictions go into effect?

    The restrictions are effective August 30, 2012. The restrictions apply to every DACA-eligible individual effective immediately.

    Has anyone seen the executive Order?

    There does not appear to be one. There are two orders that establish study groups to study immigration and report back to the president on how the immigration system can be improved but no EO that directs the actions he outlined, (vaquely), in his speech.

    There is also Secretary Jeh Johnson’s order of prosecutorial discretion that catagorizes the types of illegal immigrants that are priority, but that is within the law for him to do that.

    Then, read the transcropt of O’s speech and you will see that he never once says “Executive Order”.

    I think that 1) he knows that if he signs an EO with specificity of the actions he is ordering than he gives standing for a law suit. 2) he punked the GOPe’s, (and the latino community), because he has not ordered any action, officially, to be performed by his executive agencies.

    How does this help him? It gets the news cycle on the conservative media screaming bloody murder and it makes the latino community think he has just fulfilled his promise for amnesty. He can then say “see how radical the Republicans are that they would jump to the conclusion that I had violated the law and constitution when I actually only ordered that the subject be studied. See how much they hate immigrants and want to harm them. They have no compassion”.

    Any thoughts?

    The ability to have an SSN also makes them eligible for EITC. Now, what would happen if Congress refused to fund the IRS unless O sign a bill for IRS funding that denies EITC for all DACA and the new “amnesty” eligible illegals. Who in the general public would be outraged that the IRS was defunded? I highly doubt that the general public will be up in arms about the closing of the IRS.

    According to the story he is 45 y/o now. His ID expired in 2000. So for 14 years he had no ID.

    What name is on his Social Security card?

    Is it the same as his birth certificate?

    If not, then what name and documents did his parents use to get him a SSN?

    Chances are he has some form of ID since he can’t sell scrap, (bottles and cans) to a recycler without ID. I had a friend that worked for a recycler as a semi driver and I have watched the process. Even the street people have to show ID to sell cans and bottles.

    Most likely he is trying to fly under the radar so as not to have to file tax returns or has warrants out for him under one of his names.

    This appears to be like “my daily flog” which invites you to see pictures from a friend. Once you agree and go through the sign up they highjack your address book and send request in your name to folks in your address book pretending to be you.

    Several of my friends have had this happen with Linkedin lately. The one that had responded to the invite from a “supposed” friend found that his address book was high jacked and he can’t get off of the “Linkedin” member list. i don’t know if he has checked to see if he actually was on the Linkedin official site or an imposter site.

    I always send an email to the person that supposedly sent the invite and ask them if they actually sent it. I have never had anyone reply that they sent the invite.

    Delete, spam it and never respond to these “invites”.
