  • Boehner: “Mr. President, This Isn’t About You … It’s About the American People”

    Boehner: “Mr. President, This Isn’t About You … It’s About the American People” Washington, Mar 18 - At a press conference this morning with House & Senate GOP leaders, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) dismissed President Obama’s sales pitch to rank-and-file Democrats that “the fate of his presidency” is on the line with the upcoming health care vote and also discussed the House vote expected today on the resolution offered by Rep. Parker Griffith (R-AL) to block the “Slaughter Solution”: “Well, it’s pretty clear that Democrat leaders here in Congress and the President aren’t listening to the American people....

    Regulation: The New York Times says the EPA should use its authority to regulate our very breath if a Democratic Congress isn't "goaded" into action. Whatever happened to government of the people? It's been a pattern of this administration that if the American people are adamantly opposed to it, ram it through anyway. So it's been with the health care overhaul, offshore drilling restrictions and now the Environmental Protection Agency threatening to become the uber-regulator of the air we breathe. (snip) As Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, noted: "Lisa Jackson, Obama's...

    Dear Mr. President, We are still a free country with a constitution and our God-given unalienable individual rights. You can't just order people to purchase your health insurance plan. The congress does not have the constitutional authority to enact your socialist health care plan anyway. The federal government has no authority to involve itself in health care issues. And your plan is most definitely socialism whether you care to admit it or not. And it's unconstitutional. But I do love your methodology. No matter what the problem, all we have to do is throw more federal money at it and...

    With banners, flags and T-shirts denouncing Barack Obama's fiscal stimulus and health reforms, Tea Party movement protestors are turning out against him everywhere he goes. Last week he was in Florida to sell the "jobs, jobs, jobs" message of his State of the Union address and unveil plans for a new high-speed bullet train from Tampa to Orlando to help kick-start the economy. In a packed college sports hall, the Mr Obama received a tumultuous welcome, reminiscent of the heady days of the 2008 campaign when he electrified the country with his White House run.

    We’ve now seen three landslide Republican victories in three states that President Obama carried in 2008. From the tea parties to the town halls to the Massachusetts Miracle, Americans have tried to make their opposition to Washington’s big government agenda loud and clear. But the President has decided that this current discontent isn’t his fault, it’s ours. He seems to think we just don’t understand what’s going on because he hasn’t had the chance – in his 411 speeches and 158 interviews last year – to adequately explain his policies to us. Instead of sensibly telling the American people, “I’m...

    A recent Free Press article noted that Rep.

How can that be? Does he not understand what his title means? A “representative” is to act in the stead of another. The article then goes on to quote Walz: “The day after we pass it, the sun will rise.” Now,...

    Back in late October, I wrote "Brady Campaign hypocrisy," chiding the Brady Campaign--specifially, their Vice President for Law and Policy, Dennis Henigan--for his accusation that the "gun lobby" tries to hide the truth. This accusation positively reeks of hypocrisy, on a couple levels. First, Henigan himself, in arguing on a video clip that the Second Amendment did nothing to protect the individual's right to keep and bear arms, recited the amendment in its entirety--except for the "of the people" part--the very part that poses the biggest problem for the now discredited "collective rights" interpretation of the Second Amendment. Second, when...

    Health Care Reform: Failure to buy health insurance in the just-passed health care bill could get you five years in jail with a $250,000 fine. How can violating a law that's unconstitutional be a felony? The passage last Saturday night of the House health care measure by a fragile 220-215 margin may well prove to be a Pyrrhic victory. In polls, townhall meetings and tea parties, Americans have shown they don't want a "reform" that costs a staggering $1.2 trillion yet fails to meet the left's desire of insuring all the uninsured. And they certainly don't want a bill that...

According to the Tenth Amendment Center, the resolution created a committee to form a joint working group between the states to enumerate the abuses of authority by the federal government and seek repeal of imposed mandates. State Rep. Susan Lynn recently wrote a letter to the other 49 state legislatures, inviting them to join the group and warning that...

And by what authority does it prohibit the purchasing of insurance across state lines?A key part of the administration's plan to reform health care is what is called the "individual mandate" — a requirement that everyone must have health insurance either through his or her employer or purchased individually. A good chunk of the uninsured are that way of their own volition. They are young and healthy and feel they have better things to do with their money at this point...

Ostensibly, this is only for terrorists (the same ones to whom he recently gave US Constitutional rights?).

    Do We the People really establish our government or is the government 'self-establishing'? Let me explain the basis for the question. The 10th Amendment is an interesting article because of more than just the fact that it advances the idea of delegated powers. Certainly it reserves any powers not so delegated to the several States — excepting those few expressly forbidden to the States in the federal Constitution. Most of the time when people talk about the 10th Amendment this is as far as it goes where their presented logics are concerned and they essentially fail to address the full...

    We’ve heard the cliché: there is a difference between campaigning and governing. But in the last few weeks the contrast between the two could not have been more stark. And the gap between President Obama’s effectiveness at the former and shakiness at the latter is coming into focus. Guantanamo is the most vivid example. As a candidate, Obama pushed the notion that George W. Bush was a constitutional Neanderthal and destroyer of American values. Now he’s discovered that it is really hard to figure out what to do with these really bad people. And he’s even discovered the virtue of...

    This video is a powerful, positive reminder of the American spirit. It contrasts nicely with Obama's depressing, doom-and-gloom bashing of the country. It contrasts nicely with Michelle Obama's lack of pride in America and her assertion that America is a "downright mean" place. Americans know and love McCain's view of the country. The Obamas are from somewhere else.

    Thanks to the flappable Justice Anthony Kennedy the Second Amendment remains in the constitution but it is outrageous that four members of the court wanted to throw it out. (see Scalias Opinion) Justice Antonin Scalia wrote a precisely clear opinion upholding the right of the people to keep and bear arms on an individual basis. But the ink wasn’t dry before leftists of all stripes "found" language in the opinion that will allow other judges to confirm all manner of restrictions on gun owners’ rights. Unfortunately Scalia probably had to include some of these loop holes in the opinion to...

    The state Supreme Court on Monday agreed to snatch up a ruling striking down Knox County's charter and put it under the court's high-powered appellate microscope. In a rare move, the state's highest court exercised its so-called "reach-down" authority, power limited under the law to only a handful of cases "of unusual public importance." Justices will hear the case in September. The court's decision will allow the Supreme Court justices to review a ruling by Chancellor John Weaver that Knox County's charter was invalid instead of waiting for the case to travel first to an intermediate-level appellate court. Monday's announcement...

Their effort means that the people, the citizens, will be free to choose how marriage is defined in Massachusetts. This...

    Top conservative leaders have written President Bush telling him to drop his insistence on a guest-worker program and a path to citizenship for illegal aliens and instead support the 85 percent of congressional Republicans who want to tighten law enforcement first. Signers include William J. Bennett, Robert H. Bork, Ward Connerly, David A. Keene, Phyllis Schlafly and a number of think-tank academics and pundits. The immigration debate is the first major issue on which Mr. Bush finds himself opposing a majority of Republicans in Congress and depending on Democrats to deliver a victory. In their letter, the conservatives tell Mr....

    They have called. They have written. And, boy, are they mad. "They" are the residents of Knox County, and they haven't been shy about registering complaints about the charter fiasco that threatens to scuttle ordinances and torpedo term limits. They've been contacting Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale's office with comments during the week since Chancellor John Weaver ripped up the county charter. "They're angry over the charter verdict and they're angry over the term-limits issue," Ragsdale spokesman Dwight Van de Vate said. Weaver ruled last Friday that the charter, including its term-limits provision, is incomplete and wasn't properly filed with...
