(Col Sellin) ~ Does America stand for the preservation of rights or the perpetuation of power? ~ Family Security Matters …

In numerous forums, I have argued that there is a Cold Civil War underway in the United States between the power of a one-party state represented by the entrenched Democrat-Republican political establishment and the rights of the American people.

The Declaration of Independence states that certain rights are unalienable and endowed by the Creator. A one-party state believes that rights are granted by the government and, when deemed convenient, are revocable by politicians.

The first through ninth amendments to the Constitution enumerate the rights of citizens and the tenth restricts the role of a central government, as stated:

\”The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.\”

There is no ambiguity.

Nevertheless, the Democrat-Republican ruling class, which seeks an ever larger and more intrusive government, argues the opposite, that the rights and restrictions stipulated in the Constitution are unclear and that all powers not specifically delegated to the citizen are reserved for the government.

Barack Obama wrote in The Audacity of Hope, \”I have to side with Justice Breyer\’s view of the Constitution — that it is not a static but rather a living document, and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world.\”

Kevin Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution, has said, those who would offer us a \”living\” Constitution are actually giving us a dead one, since such a thing is completely unable to protect us against the encroachments of government power, for example, the misuse of executive orders.

As conservative radio host Mark Levin noted, Obama\’s announcement that he will assume lawmaking powers via executive orders violates the separation of powers clauses of the Constitution.

Yet no objection is raised by the majority Republicans in the House of Representatives, whose power Obama usurps.

Sadly, either through fear or self-interest, instances where members of Congress uphold their oath of office to \”support and defend the Constitution\” above political expediency are at best serendipity or at worst urban myth.

Not surprisingly, the politicians of America\’s one-party state view elections as little more than an opportunity for the redistribution of power among the political elite because the Democratic and Republican parties are not representatives of the people, but representatives of big government.

Members of Congress, once elected, become party foot-soldiers, whose sole purpose is to maintain the…………….

Congress’s Obamacare Waiver: Obama is buying votes from members of Congress — with stolen money

 

National Review ^ | 08/06/2013 | Michael F. CannonPosted on Tuesday, August 06, 2013 10:41:18 AM by SeekAndFindAmerica has a two-party system. But it’s not Republicans versus Democrats.

It’s the ruling class — Republicans and Democrats — against everyone else. Consider how President Obama just gave Congress its very own Obamacare waiver.Obamacare includes a provision that should cost each member of Congress and each staffer $5,000 to $11,000 per year. Needless to say, the ruling class was not pleased.Congress wasn’t about to try to exempt itself from this provision explicitly, though.

 

If John Q. Congressman voted to give himself an Obamacare waiver that his constituents don’t get, he wouldn’t be John Q. Congressman much longer.

Explanation of Pelosi‘s Martial Law

 

HOUSE LEADERSHIP INVOKES “MARTIAL LAW,” FORCING MEMBERS TO VOTE ON KEY BILLS WITHOUT FULL KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT THEY ARE VOTING ON: MOVE REPRESENTS EROSION OF THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS

Executive Director, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

 

The House Republican Leadership has announced its intention to have the House vote, before adjourning on Friday or Saturday, on several major pieces of legislation that are not yet available to House members in final form because behind-closed-door negotiations on the proposals are still going on. The Leadership apparently intends to use a process known as “martial law” to allow these bills to be brought to the floor very shortly after negotiations are completed, with the result that Members of the House are likely to have virtually no time to examine and consider the details of the legislation before they will be required to vote on it.

Mary Starrett — Davy Crocket to Bono: “It’s Not Yours To Give”

November 24, 2012 Leave a comment

…..History has shown us socialism does not work. Countries laboring under the delusion that Utopia can be achieved by making sure all have ‘what they need’ necessitates that relatively few must labor to provide for all. Bono’s ill-advised scheme is socialism. The Republican Party has agreed to consign Americans to the same fate as other socialist countries with its recent endorsement of Bono’s global goody bag.

English: Oil on canvas portrait of Davy Crocke...

English: Oil on canvas portrait of Davy Crockett; original size without frame 76.2×63.5 cm. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Bono, the mouthpiece for environmentalism, global wealth transfer and socialist policy in general owns several opulent mansions throughout the world and travels by jet. The four engine behemoth he flies (while admonishing you to drive a hybrid) gets about 3 miles per gallon. (So much for the imperiled ozone, the Kyoto treaty and greenhouse gasses.)

What we now see is the GOP unabashedly aligning itself with a man who travels the world advocating taxpayers (especially the porcine capitalists in America) fund every bloated ostensibly humanitarian project the UN can cook up. Ironically, Bono has moved his lucrative music enterprise out of his native Ireland and to the Netherlands to offset a huge tax bill with nary a wimper about this Bono factoid in our liberal press.

With planes, mansions, off shore tax shelters and a world-wide bully pulpit to tell Americans how they should fund millions for tin pot dictators in far flung lands- Bono’s got it all figured out about how much and to whom you must give to charity.

And the Republicans have signed you up for this lunacy. The Republicans- the party of limited government whose control of the White House and/or both houses of Congress for a quarter century has resulted in quadrupled federal spending.

Would that time travel were possible; I’d introduce Davy Crockett to this bonehead Bono. Davy Crockett was a U.S. Congressman from Tennessee- not just some coon-skin capped fictional character. Based on the following story I suspect the fabled frontiersman Davy Crockett would have a few well-chosen- albeit sharp- words for Mr. Bono.

Cong Leaders Call for Investigations of Moslem Brotherhood Penetration of the Obama Admin

Washington, DC, June 14, 2012: Five influential Members of Congress called yesterday for the inspectors general (IGs) of government departments with national security responsibilities to investigate whether their agencies are being subjected to influence operations mounted as part of what the Muslim Brotherhood calls its “civilization jihad.” This initiative holds out hope that a grave, and largely unremarked, threat may thus be recognized and thwarted in time.

For those of you who never heard of Ron Paul before the debate, I have known him for more than twenty five years. I have been with him many times in many settings.

 

I recall being with him in fellow physician Larry McDonald�s congressional office in Washington, which would have had to be more than twenty four years ago. Remember that my dear friend Larry was probably kidnapped by the Soviets on September first, 1983, when they shot down Koran Air Lines 007. He was an old-school Democrat, of course, and completely shared our beliefs.

 

I have spent time with Ron between congressional stints in his medical office. After the Patriot Act, he told me ruefully that the congressmen who voted for it had not been allowed to read it and knew only what they had been told. A few months back, we were together in his district office in Lake Jackson and he told me he was breaking in his new knees. That�s right, in addition to all his other qualities, Dr. Ron is now a bionic Member of Congress.

Allen West, Joe McCarthy and the Communists

May 4, 2012 2 comments

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) overstated the case when he recently declared “I believe there is about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” He clarified his assertion by stating that he was actually referring to members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus which, he contended, were Marxist in their orientation. At least on that point he was absolutely right.

The Congressional Progressive Caucus which, as Rep. Allen West claimed, includes about 78 members of Congress, maintains a direct affiliation with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) which is the American branch of Socialist International. This international group, Socialist International, traces its origin to the First International which was established in London, September 28, 1864. The First International included Karl Marx as a member of its provisional General Council. The DSA, the American branch of Socialist International, has a euphemistic and nuanced mission statement posted on the website which says, among other things, that “To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government must be transformed through greater economic and social democracy.”

A cursory investigation of the DSA indicates that they stand for principles that are antithetical to the American system of government and the American way of life. While the congressmen who are members of the Progressive Caucus, which is affiliated with the DSA, have done nothing illegal by holding membership in such an organization, the ethics of their membership ought to be called into question. Upon entering their office these congressmen took an oath to uphold the US Constitution yet they are members of a political organization that is headquartered in a foreign country and that calls for a re-ordering of the American system. Each of them ought to be asked which part of the US Constitution they would like to “transform.”

Prison Planet.com » Big Sis Launches Undercover TSA Spies To Ride Houston Buses

April 17, 2012 1 comment

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses whose job it will be to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe, during a press conference on Friday. According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Houston (METRO) press release, agencies involved in the scheme will, “ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.”

“While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise,” states the press release.

“If you think you’re going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame,” Jackson Lee said during the press conference. The Congresswoman is a staunch advocate of the TSA, having recently chastised the passage of a new law that allows airports to evict TSA agents and replace them with private screeners by claiming it would lead to a new 9/11-style attack.

One hundred forty-four weeks. Some 1,010 days. That’s how long it’s been since the United States Congress actually passed a budget.

While many Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck, planning very carefully a family strategy on how much to spend and on what, the elected leaders of the country have gotten by on omnibus spending bills in lieu of an actual budget for nearly three years.

Now, one U.S. congressman is proposing that members of Congress not receive a paycheck until they do their job and pass a budget.

Called the “Budget or Bust” Act, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun’s recently submitted bill demands just that. No budget, no paycheck for Congress.

HR 3883 would remove the president from the budget process, which is what Broun says the country’s Founders intended anyway.

“My bill returns the power of the purse to its rightful owner, which our Founding Fathers determined to be Congress, not the president,” says Broun.

“The Budget or Bust Act repeals a requirement created in 1921 for the president to submit an annual budget – an act that both Houses of Congress have used as a crutch.”

Broun says that maybe if the paychecks for members of Congress are on the line, some work will get done in Washington.

Many members of Congress also use their positions of power and the information they learn during the course of their duties to become fabulously wealthy. At a time when incomes nationally are actually declining, our Congress critters are becoming stinking rich at a staggering pace.

Obama to approve indefinite detention and torture of Americans

Autonomous Nonprofit Organization “TV-Novosti” ^ | 15 December, 2011

Posted on Wednesday, December 14, 2011 6:33:01 PM by matt1234

Less than a month after he threatened to veto terrifying legislation that would cease constitutional rights as we know it, Obama has revoked his warning and plans to authorize a bill allowing indefinite detention and torture of Americans.

After passing in the House of Representatives earlier this year, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 went before the US Senate last week, where it was met with overwhelming approval. In the days before, the Obama administration issued a policy statement on November 17 saying explicitly that the president would veto the bill, as it would challenge “the president’s critical authorities to collect intelligence incapacitate dangerous terrorists and protect the nation.”

Opposition from the White House seemed all but rampant until RT revealed earlier this week that Senator Carl Levin told lawmakers that the legislation was altered because “the administration asked us to remove the language which says that US citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section.”

But if you are a 70 year-old former bookkeeper or waitress on Medicare, well — you have swung your last golfclub or danced your last waltz, because the “ethics panel” that assesses your unithood will have no problem inventing a equation that goes something like, “Potential-Tax-revenues-minus-potential-cost-divided-by-social-and-political-value-equals…a negligible unit.

However, I sense that someone is leaning on the media, Congress, and anyone else in a position of influence who would be in a position to question Obama’s bona fides. Who? Your guess is as good as mine.

Prison Planet.com » How Can The American People Ever Trust Congress Again After Learning Of The Rampant Insider Trading That Has Been Going On?

November 15, 2011 Leave a comment

The American Dream

November 15, 2011

Will the shocking insider trading revelations that have come to light in recent days finally be enough to motivate the American people to start throwing all of the con men and charlatans out of Congress? On Sunday, 60 Minutes opened up a huge can of worms when it did a feature story on insider trading by members of Congress. Up until now, the vast majority of Americans had no idea that insider trading was actually legal for members of Congress. In fact, as will be documented later on in this article, members of Congress have been using secrets that they have learned during the course of their duties to make huge amounts of money in the stock market. If you can believe it, during the financial crisis of 2008 some members of Congress were making huge stock moves that would only pay off if the stock market crashed really hard at a time when they should have been focusing on creating legislation that would help the U.S. financial system survive. It is hard not to feel sick after learning how low some of our “leaders” have stooped to enrich themselves. Now that the American people are learning the truth, how can they ever trust Congress again?

Even before these revelations about insider trading by members of Congress came to light, the approval rating for Congress was sitting at about 11 percent.

There is a widespread feeling in this country that our political system simply does not work any longer.

Nearly all of our “leaders” seem to be wealthy elitists that are rapidly becoming wealthier. Today, the average net worth for a member of Congress is approximately 3.8 million dollars, and the collective net worth of all of the members of Congress increased by 25 percent between 2008 and 2010.

It would be one thing is they were accumulating all of this wealth legitimately. However, it is just not right for members of Congress to use government secrets and inside information that is not available to the general public to make huge profits in the stock market.

If any of the rest of us engage in insider trading, it could get us thrown into jail.

We told them. Over and over again. By phone, email, snail mail, in person at town hall meetings. We cited Article II, Section I, Clause 5 until we could recite it in our sleep.

We contacted our local sheriffs, the FBI, district attorneys, clerks of the court, held Citizen Grand Juries, wrote letters to the Editor, tried to educate our friends and families, sued at every court level, and absolutely besieged Republican congressmen. All of our efforts were to no avail.

She said, “Here you are, Mrs. Jordan; your change is $9.11.” Then, kind of stunned, she said, “You just got back $9.11 on 9/11.” I mutely nodded, stunned myself.

I do not think of myself as superstitious but I was encouraged by, of all things, a receipt from a grocery store. A flimsy little piece of paper that reminded me, in a most powerful way, to have courage in defense of my country.

Obama fooled our nation once. Don’t let him fool us again in 2012.

Have courage, be brave, then do something.

Sincerely,

Linda Jordan

CFP: Obama’s ineligibility: All members of Congress have violated their oath of office

September 25, 2011 Leave a comment

READER RESPONSE…?????

Ron Paul‘s current stand on government has some decent opinions, however, he was a member of the Congress during Obama‘s run-up to the campaign, his campaign and his nomination, his election, his swearing-in and his first 2 and 1/2 years in office – and like all other members of the Congress Ron Paul did not publicly question Obama’s credentials – and he still doesn’t do that, instead he obliquely questions Obama’s policies. The first one of the Republican candidates that directly and publicly questions Obama’s credentials will go to the head of the class, but it won’t be Ron Paul or any other sitting member of Congress among the candidates, no matter what the members say for public consumption, their primary loyalty is to their colleagues and anyone questioning Obama’s qualifications indicts them all. That is one pustular political boil no one among them wishes to pop.

President Says “Democracy” Holding Back Progress

August 6, 2011 1 comment

President Barack Obama cited the lengthy battle over the debt ceiling as “evidence of the need for more radical reform of the way we do business in this country.”

“Democracy isn’t always a good thing,” Obama suggested. “Members of Congress are elected by vastly divergent constituencies. The institution is incapable of speaking with one voice. Consequently, precious time was lost by the requirement to gain legislative approval for what we all knew needed to be done. It wasn’t bad just for me. Members of Congress had to put in long hours arguing over minutia that ultimately won’t matter. They could’ve spent that time enjoying life, recreating, being with their families.”

The President characterized the debt ceiling legislation’s “Council of 12” as a step in the right direction. “One good thing that came out of this struggle was a provision to streamline the legislative process,” Obama said. “Instead of having to deal with 100 senators and 400 representatives, a council of 12 members will have plenary powers to control future spending and taxes. Thankfully, none of those who voted against the debt ceiling bill are eligible to serve on this council. So, while we haven’t completely freed ourselves from the impediments of Congress we have significantly reduced its impact.”

“I am optimistic that if things go according to plan we will after 2012 achieve a more unified governing process,” the President added.

Mary Starrett — Davy Crocket to Bono: “It’s Not Yours To Give”

August 5, 2011 Leave a comment

In the early 1800′s Congress was considering a bill to give tax dollars to the widow of a well-loved military officer. Davy Crockett rose to address Congress after many speeches advocating the allocation. He said: “Mr. Speaker…. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it.

We have the right, as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity, but as members of Congress we have no right to so appropriate a dollar of the public money. We have no…. authority to appropriate it as a charity. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”

There was silence on the floor of the House as Crockett took his seat. When the bill was put to a vote, instead of passing unanimously as had been expected, it received only a few votes. The next day a friend asked Crockett why he spoken against a bill for such a worthy cause. In reply, Crockett related the following story: Just a few years before, he had voted to spend $20,000.00 of public money to help the victims of a fire in Georgetown.

When the legislative session was over, Crockett made a trip back home to campaign for his re-election. He encountered one of his constituents. The man told Crockett, “I voted for you the last time. I shall not vote for you again.”

Crockett, feeling he had served his constituents well, was stunned. He inquired as to what he had done wrong. The man replied, “You gave a vote last winter which shows that either you have not capacity to understand the Constitution, or that you are wanting in the honesty and firmness to be guided by it.

I do not know how I can state it any clearer.

The American people are victims of the greatest fraud and the deepest and widest conspiracy in the history of the United States. This fraud and conspiracy stretches throughout our government and the main stream media.

It is now widely known that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that Barack Obama is, according to the Constitution, an illegal President and has committed multiple felonies both in and out of office.

Members of Congress are deliberately hiding the truth from the American people. By doing so, every member of Congress is also committing a felony; know as “Misprision of felony.”

What are the citizens supposed to do when their government is committing crimes and considers itself above the law?

The republic is in grave danger because we now have a government of men, not of laws, and there is no longer any restraint against the commission of more extensive and intrusive criminal acts by those in power.

Our liberties are at risk.

We have elective despotism

We have elections, but we have members of Congress who feel absolutely no accountability to the electorate. We have elective despotism.

Obama is an illegal President according to Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution and the binding precedent of Minor vs. Happersett (1875).

Treasonous Congressmen Who Voted FOR The PATRIOT Act

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Dear Concerned Citizen – The below is a list of the House members that voted FOR extension of the PATRIOT Act: Since the PATRIOT Act violates the U.S. Constitution by “justifying” such violation with the “need” for more “national security,” the Congressmen and Congresswomen in the above list are traitors to their Oath of Office, an oath they all took to uphold theU.S. Consitution. These people should thus bevoted out of officeas soon as possible. This data was reported………………….

If You Thought The Second Amendment…
The Market Ticker ^ | 1/11/11 | Karl Denninger

Posted on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 7:23:11 PM by FromLori

was under fire, wait until you see what they have in mind for The First!

Rep. Brady (D – PA) has promised to introduce new legislation to criminalize any political speech which could be perceived as incendiary, and other Democrats suggested that there should be a blanket ban on all speech and symbols which might be conceivably interpreted as incendiary against members of Congress.

Of course the Courts are unlikely to agree with this, considering that The First Amendment, when it involves political speech, is pretty much a blank check and always has been – with good reason.

So that which they cannot get with the law, they instead turn to violating the Constitution by other means!

Rep. Louise Slaughter (D – NY) insisted that the FCC should work hard to restrict political speech that “could incite people,” adding that “no one owns the airwaves” and that she clearly felt the FCC was not doing enough to regulate political commentary nor to sanction those whose criticism were unacceptable to her.

By the way, if you’re wondering how freedom dies…. you’re seeing it.

Why is it now that we’re seeing this sort of reaction, and why is it that we have Congressfolk trying to introduce what amount to a bill granting Titles of Nobility, which are, I remind you, explicitly barred under The Constitution?

If it’s illegal to make a death threat against The President (it is), or a sitting Congressperson (it is), or a Judge (it is), then it should be equally unlawful and result in the same prosecution if someone makes the same threat aimed toward you or I.

Oh yeah, we had that too. The Tucson shooter allegedly made several death threats – against the Pima College administration, against talk show hosts in the area, and against bloggers.

All of which The Sheriff of Pima County refused to refer to the DA and file charges to prosecute.

Finally, for their part The Left never, ever posts in a public place a picture of, say, Ms. Palin about to blow her own brains out and proclaims “I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive”, right?

THE ATTACK IN TUCSON
boblonsberry.com ^ | 01/09/10 | Bob Lonsberry

Posted on Monday, January 10, 2011 8:45:01 AM by shortstop

They died in the service of our country.

 

The judge, the little girl, the congressional staffer. The three people in their 70s.

 

They all died in the name of American liberty. Just as assuredly as if they were casualties on a foreign battlefield.

 

They were killed by the evil which is the sworn enemy of our freedom and this Republic. In the guise of the terrorists on September 11th, or the Japanese at Pearl Harbor, or a monster with a gun at a Tucson supermarket, it is all the same. Different faces of the same beast. All attacks on us and what we hold dear.

 

The Speaker almost had it right.

 

An attack on one who serves is not just an attack on all who serve – it is an attack on all who are served.

 

A member of Congress is called a representative, and on Saturday morning Gabrielle Giffords was not just a representative of the 8th District of Arizona, she was a representative of us all and of our nation. She was engaged in her duties as an officer of our Constitution, she was there representing the United States of America.

 

And that is what was attacked.

 

In those duties, on that errand, fulfilling those responsibilities, violence born of evil or insanity was rained down upon her. It was not about her, it was about us, all of us, and the Republic which for more than two centuries our ancestors have jealously defended.

 

America was attacked, and in the wounding of Gabrielle Giffords, its defender was felled. Just as assuredly as if she had been in our uniform, in our military, on our bidding. Because she, like those in our military, swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

 

And that is what she was doing Saturday morning at the Safeway.

 

She was making certain that the people of Arizona had face-to-face access to their federal government. She was keeping open the doors of communication by opening them herself. She was not a politician, she was an officeholder, and she was there in her official capacity.

 

And she stood shoulder to shoulder with 300 million other Americans as she did so.

 

She was literally wounded in our service. Just like Abraham Lincoln and William McKinley and James A. Garfield. Lincoln was shot by a man who resented his successes as commander in chief, McKinley was shot by an anarchist who hated all government, and Garfield was shot by a man who supported his political opponents. These were political shootings, and so was the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords.

The Republican National Committee has signed on to endorse a proposal by Irish rocker Bono to commit American taxpayers to spending $30 million to “eliminate global poverty.”

 

As if any amount of tax payer funds would actually accomplish that goal. What usually happens is the money extracted from us to fund these wealth transfers first fills the pockets of foreign fat cat dictators while barely a trickle ends up lining empty food bowls.

History has shown us socialism does not work. Countries laboring under the delusion that Utopia can be achieved by making sure all have ‘what they need’ necessitates that relatively few must labor to provide for all. Bono’s ill-advised scheme is socialism. The Republican Party has agreed to consign Americans to the same fate as other socialist countries with its recent endorsement of Bono’s global goody bag.

 

Bono, the mouthpiece for environmentalism, global wealth transfer and socialist policy in general owns several opulent mansions throughout the world and travels by jet. The four engine behemoth he flies (while admonishing you to drive a hybrid) gets about 3 miles per gallon. (So much for the imperiled ozone, the Kyoto treaty and greenhouse gasses.)
