  • A Frankenstein Constitution

    04/16/2014 2:47:01 PM PDT · by Jacquerie · 71 replies
    A common concern among Article V opponents is fear that a convention of the states to propose constitutional amendments will result in an oppressive constitution. All we need to do is enforce the constitution we have. Elect the right people to implement our written constitution and all will be well. As logical and appealing as that approach appears to be, it ignores some horrible realities, and actually promotes our headlong dive into tyranny, for the anti-constitution, the unwritten Frankenstein constitution rules. First, aside from the occasional heat politicians take from an outraged populace, our legislative and executive branches in the...

    On Monday, April 14, 2014, the Pulitzer Prize, the most prestigious award in American journalism, was awarded to the Washington Post and (UK’s) The Guardian for their coverage related to the revelations of spy, Edward Snowden. Apparently, for those on the Pulitzer committee, it’s still ethical to betray your country and carry water for the Russian military and intelligence. Still ethical? Yes. At a press conference held at the Women’s National Republican Club prior to the announcement, Accuracy in Media, a journalistic watchdog based in Washington, D.C., recounted the circumstances around another Pulitzer Prize, to Walter Duranty. Speaking at the...

    What would a country look like with a small government and was guided by God and the maximum freedom of its citizens? That is the country I developed in The Republic of Texas 2022, my new novel being published and now in early release. Our hero is Steven Moses who is the most powerful man in the world, but understands that the free market is where true freedom lies.

    To Freepers, our statist government is a daily “fingernails across the chalkboard” experience. Why is Obama able to sweep judicial, and legislative powers into the executive? Why did our national government morph from one designed to protect our freedoms into one of increasing political and social oppression? Why did the federal government generally remain within its Constitutional bounds prior to WWI and not thereafter? Thank the 17th Amendment. Tomorrow is its one hundred and one year anniversary. It fundamentally altered the Constitution; it pulled the keystone from the arch of our Framers’ structure. The structure upon which our freedoms depend...

    I'm getting old and my memory is failing so please correct me where my memory is wrong or if I'm making up memories. Also, please expand where I fall miserably short. It's my recollection that Reagan was so successful because he was a leader with a vision who promoted strength, freedom, optimism, patriotism and righteousness. And he could communicate his vision with commonsense, humility and good humor. He did not succeed by pandering, evolving and adapting. He brought various factions together by promoting the ideas that freedom was much better than socialism, strength better than weakness, fiscal restraint better than...

    04/02/2014 6:51:18 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 35 replies
    Elections matter in republics. I question the practical, modern purpose of American elections. Their traditional purpose was to determine who will represent us in a law-making congress and who the electoral college appoints as President. Subsequently, these people were to promote the general welfare and happiness of a free people. Is that what we have? Is it our recent experience? Does Congress draft, debate and send to the President the rules that govern a free people? Instead of responsible, accountable government, we endure a lawless executive whose perception of constitutional powers is that which he and his handlers believe he...

Waugh was up for re-election this year and was not planning on running for a fifth term. His resignation led to the calling of a special election two months ahead of the scheduled May primary.

    As Russian troops roll into Ukraine, President Obama’s feckless and absentee leadership on the global stage is an American embarrassment and as President, his actions increasingly endanger the safety and security of all Americans. Obama is changing the course of American history as he abandons our international friends, yields and compromises with our adversaries, abrogates our foreign responsibilities, slashes our military, unilaterally retreats while engaged in war, and surrenders to Russia the premier dominance of global influence. Like Neville Chamberlin, the pre-WWII English Prime Minister, Obama’s appeasement efforts typifies Chamberlin’s as world tensions escalate and simmer. Obama’s misguided foreign affairs...

Speaker Boehner proudly put forth a set of immigration principles, a fig leaf presentation to pave the road to amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Our Declaration eloquently expressed it as, “That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, . . . “ That straightforward concept begat the question, “How to best secure those rights?” The answer was to be found in some form of republican government. By that, the founding generation meant the peoples’ representatives consent to all laws. That determination was all well and...

    One of the most misused words in the English language is “free,” as in “it’s free.” Whether it’s the free samples of stuff at Costco, or the free pens and refrigerator magnets they give away at your local bank or car dealership, or the free hip replacement your mother-in-law just received, we use the term freely, so to speak, without ever considering it’s true meaning. When we say “it’s free,” what we really mean is that someone else is paying for it—voluntarily or involuntarily. And this is a very important distinction. Because one is morally defensible, while the other is...

    The king said to him, "How many times must I make you swear to tell me nothing but the truth in the name of the LORD?" 1 Kings 22:16 While our Glorious Premier Kim Su Obama is in Hawaii admiring his namesake Obamacare and its wonderful damage done to the economy the Mainstream Marxist Media feigns outrage over some traffic cones on a bridge. While we have a hundred million out of work the employed media is hard at work taking out another potential opposition candidate over a couple hours of sitting in traffic. The transparency of these propagandists is...

    To hell with a million man march. We need a TEN MILLION man march!! Fill the mall and every street in DC!!

    "THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." Thomas Paine, from the essay “The Crisis”, December 23, 1776 “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln Oh how prescient these men were. And so again we’ve reached that point as history repeats itself. Once again a Republic finds itself rotted...

    Karin Stanford, the Mother of Jesse Jackson‘s 12-year-old love child, is going public with her allegations that the good reverend has fallen behind on his child support payments to the tune of $11,694.50, according to the National Enquirer. Court documents filed with the L.A. Superior Court state that the minimum monthly financial obligation was set at $400, but Jackson, 70, failed to fork over even a dollar to Stanford between December 2010 and August 2011. Stanford first met Jackson, when she was completing her doctoral dissertation on his foreign policy record. Jackson, who was married with five children, and Stanford...

    Adultery, greed, malice, deceit, ledness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unlean.” After two weeks of feigned outrage in the Marxists’ attempt at destroying Phil Roberston we are hearing nothing but praise about the Wolf of Wall Street. This movie will receive multiple Oscar Nominations for being so new. Now one is a degenerate throwing F-Bombs every third word while having sex with every woman he comes in contact with while the other one says he doesn’t like the thought of anal sex and loves his wife of fifty years. Guess...

    Normally at this time of year, the culture-war fight is over a guy with a white beard. That’s true again this year. What’s different is that Phil Robertson took Santa’s place, and instead of a war on Christmas, we have a war on Duck Dynasty.

    Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Cor 6: 9-10 While Phil Robertson sits in a duck blind worrying if he brought enough shells and happy, happy, happy the Marxists are once again showing they are angry, angry, angry. The homosexual Gestapo which is simply another arm of the thought nazis overplayed their hand and is attempting...

    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then; and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Gal 5:1 When is the DNC going to apologize to the American people for destroying the finest insurance industry the world has ever seen? There are people actually suffering and worrying they may not have coverage in two weeks as opposed to the Marxist lies we heard about the so called crisis he invented to trick the people into going along with Obamacare. They passed a law and like all Soviet style tyrants they...
  • Democrats and Democratic Tyranny

    12/11/2013 3:19:23 AM PST · by Jacquerie · 31 replies
    Democrats just love democracy. Who could possibly oppose it? Didn’t progressive icon Woodrow Wilson tell the nation that its purpose was to make the world safe for democracy? What reasonable person could be against all power to the people? I am, and I am in good company. Our Framing generation had a short, yet sufficient experience with overly democratic state governments to figure out that majoritarian abuse of minorities was just as harmful and dangerous to freedom as the executive tyranny of George III. Benjamin Rush famously said that while the constitutions of 1776-1777 barred the front door to executive...

    Here is a response from Florida State Senator Alan Hays regarding last Saturday's Mount Vernon Assembly. "We discussed the process of bringing the Article V convention into reality and agreed to meet next year at a time yet to be determined due to the need to meet when state legislatures are adjourned or in recess. That will assure more participation. We also discussed a possible resolution to go to each state requesting their legislatures establish a selection process for delegates to be attending an Article V. Convention." "We recognized the need for wide communication to the public of our work....

    So I'm going through my RSS feeds this morning for good articles to post and come upon this headline: Montreal deploying fleet of facial recognition drones for 24/7 patrolsSounds believable...one of my little hot-button topics (government surveillance)...so I check it out: The City of Montreal has purchased 24 drones to help law enforcement tackle crime as authorities look to cut back the police force over the next 15 years. The UAVs, equipped with facial recognition technology, will be armed to ‘neutralize suspects’. "It's very exciting," the chief of police for the borough where the drones will be deployed, Montreal North,...
