Things stir beyond the frontiers. If we are not to swirl down history’s drain while singing We Shall Overcome, perhaps we should begin again to pay attention to ability. It is one thing, and a good thing, to insist on equality of opportunity. Them as can cut the mustard should have access to mustard. But affirmative action, meaning the hiring of those who would not be hired on their merit, lowers competitiveness in a world that is not going to cut the US any slack. White European males have been far away and gone the world’s most bounteous fountains of the sciences. Maybe we should keep them, even encourage them. The deliberate enstupidation of the schools to favor the unable, to make those who can’t or won’t look as if they could or have, is auto-Kevoirkian governance.
If those who detest white European males can do better, they should. Show me. I am waiting. Meanwhile, let them eat goose who do not like golden eggs.

THE MYTH OF THE PUBLIC SERVANT: THE OATH TO “PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.” : EDRIVERA.COM
Law enforcement, the cop, deputy sheriff, highway patrol man or other bona fide badge bearer, only enforces the written law. The “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” should apply exclusively where government’s written laws do not, however, instead written government law has replaced the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” everywhere.
The myth of the public servant exists to perpetuate the myth that George Washington refused compensation so that he could be a public servant. George Washington gave up compensation so that he could found a dynasty of presidential dictators.
To go beyond the myths, you need a guide and the Basic Course in Law and Government is that guide.
I attended UCLA Law School from 1968 to 1971 and I was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1972. I was a faithful dues paying member of the Bar until 2006, when I was disbarred for telling the truth about law in America.
The truth about the law is there is no law except the orders created by government bureaucrats. You are being ordered about and you call it democracy, because you could vote for the official who casts the aye or nay vote on how you are to live your life.
It is impossible to learn the law from anyone else.
Every other source of legal education will support your continued enslavement by federal, State or local government.

Will the Lone Star state turn blue in 2012?
In the poll’s match-ups, President Barack Obama loses Texas to every notable Republican except Perry and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If the ballot came down to Perry and Obama, 47 percent of poll respondents said they would vote for Obama. Forty-five percent said they would cast a ballot for Perry.
The most elected Republican in the poll? Mitt Romney.
The poll found that Obama would garner 42 percent of the Texas vote to 50 percent for the former Massachusetts governor. The president trailed Texas Rep. Ron Paul, R-Lake Jackson, by 5 percentage points, 40 percent to 45 percent.
Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann leads in Texas, 47 percent to Obama’s 44 percent. Obama also loses to former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty by 1 percentage point.
Obama would beat out Palin for the state with 46 percent of respondents casting a ballot for his second term and 44 percent voting for Palin…..

The appeals court ruled today in favor of Obama’s “health reform”
The court said Affordable Care Act is a ‘valid exercise’ of congressional power.
Here’s all you need to know. The United States of America is hanging by a thread. If this abomination of a law is upheld by the Supreme Court, several state legislators will defend the constitutional right of their citizens. The gravity of the decision to come by the Supreme Court cannot be mitigated. If this law stands, there will be secession – and the Keynesian Kenyan will likely not leave well enough alone. Since he came here to destroy this country from the day he popped out of nowhere, he would no doubt declare war on the more virtuous half of this land that should be called the GFSA (God Fearing States of America).
If this saboteur wins re-election in 2012 and has his way with this nation for another four years, following is a projection of what the intellectually indolent media will be saying :
“Look at the parallels between Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln… He’s a second coming of Lincoln, from Illinois, he announced his candidacy in front of the state house where Lincoln served, he campaigned in front of Lincoln images in 2007, he served the same menu at his inauguration, was sworn in on Lincoln’s Bible… AND NOW – he presides over America’s SECOND CIVIL WAR…”
But the leftist sycophants won’t be explaining that this man deliberately instigated and picked at every wound, sowed discord in every fathomable way and deliberately CAUSED the WAR!
His administration has methodically divided this nation day by day, step by step.
This corrupt regime is suing a litany of Border States for simply enforcing the federal laws for which this centralized government was constitutionally chartered – protecting the borders.
They are forcing the states to sue them for forcing citizens to participate in his Marxist healthcare scam. In a time of multiple wars he has forced the legal approbation of homosexuality within all branches of the military.
This Trojan horse is not content to stop there as his administration now seeks to promulgate homosexual “marriage” within the ranks of the military and indoctrinating our soldiers sowing discord in the midst of their engagements.
They are now spitting in the faces of grieving families as they fight to prohibit the use of the word God or Jesus at military funerals of our fallen soldiers (as we have seen this very week in the news).
This administration has worked tirelessly to prevent the enemy combatants from being tried at military tribunals, instead granting these terrorists “constitutional rights” in our own judicial system – rights of a constitution these enemies themselves abhor and are fighting to destroy!
And today, on the same day this federal court upheld this effrontery against our nation, Obama castigated our congress for attempting to save this nation from bankruptcy, demanding like a petulant child that they RAISE taxes in order to codify what will be the death knell to our economy.
This man who was raised by leftists in a disfunctional family, despising every principle upon which this great nation was founded is like a culmination of all our national sins, embodied in one very real individual. He has a plan for America and it makes fictional stories like The Manchurian read like Disney.
An organization that represents the 75 percent of American citizens who want more control over illegal immigration is calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama over his involvement in the transfer of weapons to Mexican drug lords and his efforts to provide amnesty to illegal aliens.
“President Obama is no longer the legitimate president of the United States,” said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, in calling for the action today.
“By arming drug and human smugglers with assault weapons that have been used to kill American and Mexican citizens and police forces, and by ordering amnesty for illegal aliens which has been rejected by both the Congress and the American public more than eight times, Obama has committed a form of treason against the United States and must be removed from office by Congress,” he said.

Fallon Was In Charge Of General Petraeus – ‘The Perfumed Prince’
RUSH: Freshman Republican Senator Marco Rubio has had his own name for Barack Obama, and this is classic as well. This is from National Review Online at their Corner blog: “Rubio tells us that he will respond to Obama’s recent press conference, where the president reveled in class-warfare bluster. ‘Quite frankly, I am both disappointed for our country and shocked at some of the rhetoric,’ he says. ‘It was rhetoric, I thought, that was more appropriate for some left-wing strong man than for the president of the United States. Talking about corporate jets and oil companies,’ Rubio says, missed the point. ‘Everybody here agrees that our tax code is broken,’ he says, and he is open to discussing tax reform.
“‘But don’t go around telling people that the reason you are not doing well is because some rich guy is in a corporate jet or some oil company is making too much money.’” Well, that’s all Obama’s got. All he has is class warfare. You know, Obama’s out there chiding the Republicans for not acting like grownups. So when’s he gonna go answer questions about jobs or the economy? He just… I don’t know. The White House says they’re gonna host a Twitter town hall with President Obama on July 6, and that’s where the president will answer questions submitted via Twitter which limits messages to 140 characters. “The town hall will focus on jobs and the economy and a video feed of Obama’s answers will be streamed online.” So he’s gonna go answer questions about jobs and the economy on Twitter.
Now, let’s examine Obama a little bit from yesterday, folks. There’s only one reason to play the Fear or the Race or the Sick Children or the Homophobe Card, and that is when you have a losing hand. You have to examine Obama here in the context of his life. He’s never been in this position in his entire life. He has finally had to make decisions — as an executive, not as a voting senator — and those decisions that he’s made have produced results, and the results are disastrous. The results are horrible, and what he’s going to do is parade those horribles in front of the country and try to say that the Republicans are to blame for all this. But these results have come back to haunt him.
They are worried in the White House. They are terrified. They’re not
“THE EXPRESS LANE TO NATURAL BORN CLARITY.
The US Supreme Court definition of an Article 2 Section 1 natural-born citizen as stated in Minor v Happersett is strictly limited to those persons born in the United States to parents who were citizens. Below, I will make this crystal clear with stealth to reduce the complexities of the issue into a refined exposition and mantra the average citizen will easily comprehend.
NATURAL BORN CLARITY
The Supreme Court in Minor specifically avoided construing the 14th Amendment as to the issue of whether Virginia Minor was a US citizen. Instead, the Court looked no further than the natural-born citizen clause in Article 2 Section 1. The Court held that Minor was a member of the “class” of persons who were natural-born citizens. They defined this class as those born in the US to “parents” (plural) who were citizens. (For more detailed analysis of this issue, see my two previous reports, here and here.)
The Court also noted that the “citizenship” of those born to non-citizen parents was subject to doubt. Since Virginia Minor was in the class of natural-born citizens, that doubt didn’t need to be resolved. The Court exercised judicial restraint and thereby avoided construction of the 14th Amendment as to the citizenship issue.
Such avoidance and restraint were called for. In order for the Court to act, there must be a genuine controversy with regard to the laws in question. Since there was no controversy before the Court involving a 14th Amendment citizenship issue, the Court decided the issue on other grounds, specifically Article 2 Section 1.
Now we turn to US v. Wong Kim Ark. In that case, the US Supreme Court held that (some) persons born in the United States of alien parents were “citizens”. In doing so, the Court stated that it was specifically construing only the 14th Amendment. And here lies the rub of clarity:
If Wong Kim Ark had been a natural-born citizen, the Supreme Court would never have reached the 14th Amendment issue (just as it didn’t reach it in Minor.)
That statement is a perfectly true mantra. Read it again… and again, until it sinks in. Then share the mantra. There is no antidote for it. There is never an antidote for truth.

Massachusetts Case Will Set Precedent Regarding Videotaping Of Cops
06-30-2011 • http://www.pixiq.com
They charged Simon Glik with felony wiretapping, disturbing the peace and aiding the escape of a prisoner – even though all he did was hold up a video camera – and the man they were arresting did not escape.
The charges were quickly dropped and Glik eventually filed a lawsuit for false arrest, claiming his First and Fourth Amendment rights had been violated.
A judge denied that motion and they appealed, which brought the issue back to court last week.
Now another judge will decide whether the cops will be granted qualified immunity, which would set a legal precedent that cops can basically make unlawful arrests of citizens who videotape them without fear of repercussions.

The methods and strategies of the government’s assault against Waco had been used for years by the military, but against foreign governments and their leaders, not against the domestic citizenry. The most familiar case of foreign intrigue was the government’s attack on Manuel Noriega, in which it used similar tactics (blaring music, planting evidence, spreading disinformation), and therein lies the connection between foreign policy and domestic. Anything a government allows itself to do to foreign countries will eventually be done at home. That’s one reason George Washington warned us against foreign entanglements.
We may never know the full truth about Waco or the extent of government perfidy, but we can draw lessons from the experience. This particular event was a fiasco, but it also tells something about what our government has become: “the organizer-in-chief of society,” as Bertrand de Jouvenel said, which is “making its monopoly of this role ever more complete.” It is a parasite and a monster that acts to protect itself. Mises was right: government’s nature is coercive. It is “beating, killing, hanging.” Coercion is necessary in society to protect the rights of property holders against those who do not respect property. But when government itself become the source of arbitrary violence, we have tyranny. That’s why unchecked power should never be invested in a centralized government, even one with a democratic mandate. This power will invariably be exercised at the expense of peaceful social relations.
In its dealings with the community of believers at Mount Carmel, the central government abandoned the moral promise of a free society, and, as all tyrannies eventually do, ignored its own standards of law and ethics. But it paid the price of losing some measure of public confidence, which is already at historic lows. A government that governs by fear alone eventually finds itself unable to govern at all.

Why is Obama apparently defying federal law by funding ACORN?
Worse yet, the grant funds a political agitation and indoctrination program. Here’s HUD’s euphemistic description of the program:
Education and Outreach Initiative grants (EOI) – HUD awarded $6.8 million to organizations that educate the public and housing providers about their rights and obligations under federal, state, and local fair housing laws. Groups will also conduct fair lending workshops, community meetings, and individual counseling activities focused on homeowners at risk for discrimination.
According to HUD, the grant money came out of fiscal 2010 appropriations.
That’s a big problem.
As I reported previously, in 2009 Congress passed four separate appropriations bills that contained language blocking federal funds from flowing to ACORN during federal fiscal year 2010, which ran from Oct. 1, 2009 through Sept. 30, 2010. All four laws prevent ACORN and its affiliates from receiving taxpayer dollars.
Yet despite the ban, President Obama, who worked for ACORN as an employee and as the group’s lawyer, found it in his heart to hand over $79,819 of your money to his thug friends at ACORN.
As I warn in my new book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, ACORN is still with us, doing its best to destroy American capitalism and democracy.
The group is gearing up right now to make sure President Obama gets reelected in 2012. Its state chapters have adopted assumed names and remain active. Project Vote, ACORN’s vote manufacturing factory, continues to operate unmolested in ACORN’s Washington, D.C. office.
You’ve been warned.

IS SHARIA LAW BEING IMPLEMENTED IN AMERICA BY STEALTH?
by One Pissed-off Vietnam Vet
(Jun. 30, 2011) — At the conclusion of “What? Me Offended? You Bet,” we were introduced to the American acronym of the word “JIHAD”: Join in Halting America’s Destruction. Since that article was written, America has opened her arms and welcomed the Muslim Brotherhood: you know, the Iranian-sponsored terror organization that overthrew the Egyptian leader and is now starting to implement Sharia Law there by killing Christians, amongst others.
Muslims have taken over countries for centuries and have perfected the method of doing so as a purely predictable science. Step One is to convince the populace that is being conquered that Islam is a “peaceful religion” rather than a Totalitarian system of government that renders women second-class citizens who have absolutely no control over their lives and, consequently, live a life of horror as slaves and subject to an “honor beating” or an “honor killing” at the whim of their male handlers, be they a father, uncle, brother, husband, or religious police, such as the Taliban.
The second step that Muslims force upon an unsuspecting people is

When Glenn Beck signs off today at the end of his last Fox News cablecast, he will leave a TV legacy of reckless, divisive and ugly speech in his wake. He and Fox News should both feel some shame for the harm they have done to the national political discourse — how they have taken an hour of dinnertime each weeknight and used it to help polarize us with paranoid and angry words.
But, of course, Fox and Beck seem to have no shame, do they? In the case of Fox News, it thinks good ratings are all that matter. And in the case of Beck, it’s all about the new projects he has and his claim to make $30 to $40 million a year, with only a tenth of that having come from Fox.
Good for them and their skewed value systems.
I will tell you something, I did much of my Ph.D. dissertation research on the blacklisting of the 1950s, and Glenn Beck’s speech and attacks were as nasty and dirty as any of it. And there is no one who can absolve Fox News for loosening those ugly forces on American life again at a time when we as a nation need to come together to solve massive problems like no time since World War II.
Tell me about how Beck will end his Fox run in third or fourth place overall in cable news ratings, and I’ll ask you at what price? He and Fox did it by speaking to our worst demons and betraying any notion of public trust that comes with being a cablecaster and part of the American press.
Americans are a doomed people for many reasons. One reason is that they are disunited and at one another’s throats and, thus, cannot stand up the tyranny issuing from Washington.
For example, the governments of Georgia, Alabama, and Florida, states that share borders, have been fighting for more than two decades over the water in Georgia’s Lake Lanier, located a few miles northeast of Atlanta. In 2009 a federal district judge ruled that it is illegal for water to be drawn from the lake to meet the needs of Atlanta’s three million residents. The judge stipulated that the three states had until July 2011 to reach an agreement, failing which Atlanta would be restricted to the amount of water it received in the mid-1970s, when its population was less than one-third of its present size.
Obviously, the ruling was a major incentive to Alabama and Florida not to compromise. Either the judge gave no thought to this fact or he was unconcerned that 3 million Atlantans would find themselves in drought circumstances.
At the last moment on June 28, with two days to go before Atlanta was cut off from its water supply, a federal appeals court ruled that the district court judge’s decision was incorrect and gave the US Corps of Engineers one year to make a final decision concerning the allocation of Lake Lanier’s water to the three states.
The 2012 election is underway and it will be a street fight, whose outcome will determine if the United States survives as a republic.
It is futile writing to Congress for the redress of grievances. They are only interested in getting elected, not in representing their constituents.
To me Dangerous Dick is indicative of how far the Congress has degenerated.
Durbin thinks that it is acceptable for an illegal immigrant to become President.
If you recall, it was also Durbin who compared American soldiers to Nazis.
To the untrained eye Durbin may seem like he is either an idiot or insane. He is not.
You see, like his other pals in Congress, Durbin expects to be Senator-for-life along the lines of Haiti’s Baby Doc Duvalier.
Durbin and the Democrats don’t really care about illegal immigrants as future professionals, but as future voters.
By giving illegal immigrants amnesty before the 2012 election, the Democrats believe that they can guarantee an election victory for Obama and regain control of Congress.
And the feeble and impotent Republicans will acquiesce in the hope that they will be the last ones eaten by the crocodile.
