The Men Who Destroyed the Constitution by Thomas DiLorenzo « AMERICAN BLOGGER: GUNNY.G ~ WEBLOG.EMAIL
In his 1850 Disquisition on Government, John C. Calhoun argued that a written constitution would never be sufficient to contain the plundering proclivities of a central government. Some mechanisms for assuring consensus among the citizens of the states regarding “federal” laws would be necessary.
Consequently, Calhoun proposed giving citizens of the states veto power over federal laws that they believed were unconstitutional (the “concurrent majority”). He also championed the Jeffersonian idea of nullification. To Calhoun (and Jefferson), states’ rights meant that the citizens of the states were sovereign over the central government that they created as their agent, and could only be so if such mechanisms — including the right of secession — existed.
The petition has 22,717 signatures and was going to make 25,000.
Now they have changed the threshold to 100,000.
They could feel that heat.
If gun-free zones make people safe, then why don’t we declare the immediate vicinity of the President and Vice-President to be gun-free zones and send the Secret Service home? Or are gun-free zones good enough for our kids, but not good enough for our overlords? It is the height of arrogance and hypocrisy for politicians to surround themselves with armed guards while insisting that our children be soft targets.

ELECTORS OF PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT MET TODAY TO GIVE THEIR VOTES
Filed Under CONGRESS, Electoral College, Oath of Office | Leave a Comment
Those persons who registered so they could vote on November 6, 2012, for United States Senators and Representatives in the United States House of Representatives, also, qualified to vote for one of the candidates for President. All the candidates for the Offices of President and Vice President were the nominees of the political parties who qualified for the Offices of President and Vice President created by the Twelfth Amendment. Federal voters are not electors they vote for a President by voting for the Presidential Electors pledged to vote for that candidate.
Michael Ledeeen asks the question: Why Is Obama so Nasty and Vulgar?
Obama’s rude, insulting, and uses sexual inuendo to get young women to vote for him. His Vice Presidentasks a bereaved parent about the size of his murdered son’s testicles.
The press gives both of them a pass, becaue they’re all Democrats and the press is just a bunch of Democrats with bylines.
May 4, 1988 he underwent second surgery to continue the process of putting his brain back into working order.
Based on his performance in last week’s Vice Presidential debate these procedures may not have been entirely successful.
Full recovery from any kind of a medical episode involving a brain aneurysm is never a sure thing.
“Recovery to normal” is subjective. Those who regain their physical strength and coordination can perform manual labor and might never seem the worse for the episode.
Last night during the United States of America lone Vice President debate, it was a very live wire performance.It was simply the difference between a calm, measured, adult, Rep. Paul Ryan in his responses and a Vice President Joe Biden who was if not acting like a “clown”, he was sure acting like a “drama king.”
Overall, it looked like VP Biden was simply was “cracking up” under the pressure to perform as Vice President.Looks like Rep. Paul Ryan was not only speaking to the GOP/Republican base, but to the rest of the country as a whole and in a special way, to those who call themselves “independents” and “moderates.” He went into detail with the math on what needs to get done in order to get the USA back on track. VP Biden goes into caustic lectures, and he sure sounded like he was a know-it-all. I could not believe he would be laughing half the time. Is VP Biden laughing at a country in serious decline?

Joseph Biden’s career is chock-full of
career-threatening gaffes–had they been committed by a conservative. But last week was exceptional, even for Joe.

I would like to address an issue that is apparently of concern to a significant number of people. In my “Ask Fred” column, several people have expressed concern (some have been adamant and angry)
They contend that at least one of his parents were required at the time of his birth to have been a citizen for him to fulfill the constitutional requirement of eligibility, even though he was born on American soil.
I Will NOT Vote for Marco Rubio If He Is Selected as VP

I will not vote for Marco Rubio as Vice President if Mitt Romney selects him to run on his ticket. He is NOT constitutionally eligible to be President or Vice President, and I would be a damn hypocrite in holding my ire and giving him my vote after working as hard as possible to educate people on Barack Obama’s ineligibility.
Romney told reporters Rubio is being “thoroughly vetted” for the VP job and described stories reporting contrary news as “false.”
Vice-Presidential frontrunner Marco Rubio told the elitist Council on Foreign Relations during an event last week that the American people should be prepared for a war with Iran.
20 Years Later, It Turns Out Dan Quayle Was Right About Murphy Brown And Unmarried Moms
Isabel Sawhill May 25.
On May 19, 1992, as the presidential campaign season was heating up, Vice President Dan Quayle delivered a family-values speech that came to define him nearly as much as his spelling talents. Speaking at the Commonwealth Club of California, he chided Murphy Brown — the fictional 40-something, divorced news anchor played by Candice Bergen on a CBS sitcom — for her decision to have a child outside of marriage.
Show of hands: Who here still thinks Vice President Joseph R. Biden will be on the 2012 ticket?
Really? All of you? So wrong. The Great One, Sir Barack Hussein Obama, will replace the bumbling, buffoonish Mr. Biden with Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, maybe at the Democratic convention, maybe just before, in a last-ditch effort to win re-election.
The wild and crazy move is all the talk outside the Beltway. One state Democratic leader even tells me the bumper stickers are already printed, sitting in a warehouse in (where else?) Little Rock, Ark. Another party bigwig says she is “99.9 percent sure” the increasingly desperate president planned the whole thing from the beginning. (“C’mon, Hill, be Secretary of State for one term and I’ll make you veep the next!”)
You will not see an article like this appear in any American mainstream media outlet.
Barack Hussein Obama is an illegal President. He is not now nor has he ever been eligible to be a candidate for or hold that office because his father was a British subject at the time of his birth.
Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires that all candidates for the Presidency be “natural born citizens.” As defined in the binding Supreme Court precedent of Minor v. Happersett (1875) and confirmed in the subsequent ruling of U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark (1898) and others, all candidates for the offices of President and Vice President must be second generation Americans, that is, US citizens of citizen parents at the time of birth.
President and Vice President are the only U.S. political offices with that requirement. It was the intent of the American Founding Fathers that the chief executive and the commander-in-chief of the armed forces would not have dual allegiance or loyalty to a foreign power.
But he’s insisting it won’t be him, despite a flub that had him citing his performance “as vice president.”At an event hosted by National Journal, he said he wouldn’t take the position even if Mitt Romney, the leading candidate for the GOP nod for president, says he needs him……
Sen. Marco Rubio is mentioned more than any other as a potential GOP vice presidential candidate, a document found in the National Archives raises questions about whether the popular U.S. senator is actually qualified constitutionally to serve as president or vice president.
The Petition for Naturalization on behalf of Mario Rubio, the senator’s Cuban father, has been retrieved from the National Archives and posted online by the PixelPatriot website, confirming that Marco Rubio was about four years old when his parents became U.S. citizens. Specifically, Mario Rubio was naturalized as an American citizen in 1975, based on the Sept. 9, 1975, date on the petition; Marco Rubio was born in 1971.
(“Rubio is simply not constitutionally eligible for the job. This is a concern of enough Republicans to ensure Obama, who is also unconstitutional, wins re-election……”) The unintended Rubio effect
While Rubio denies any interest in serving as the vice presidential nominee of the party, his support of Romney has raised even more speculation about that possibility.
I seem to be the only pundit in America who believes Rubio, a gifted young senator whom I like immensely, will actually doom the ticket to defeat.
Even talking about this on national TV is considered scandalous.
Thousands turned out in the square by the old State Capitol to witness the announcement. But before the event could begin, the city of Springfield had work to do, said Alderman Frank Edwards.
“There are a lot of things that they asked for,” Edwards said. “Extra police, move things. You’ve got to have this A to Z and we provided that.”
The event went off without a hitch. Obama moved on to Denver, got his party’s nomination and ultimately a history-making general election victory.
But back in Springfield there remains one piece of unfinished business: an unpaid bill for $55,480.
“What they refused to pay was the $55,000 associated with police overtime for extra security,” said city Budget Director William McCarty.
On March 10, 2011 Alderman Edwards wrote the White House and the president “…to request your help.”…
Since 2009, McCarty says city officials have tried to determine who was responsible for the overdue debt.
“They contacted the DNC. They contacted the Obama campaign,” he said but no one wanted to pay. “That’s when the finger pointing began because the Obama campaign said we are a private organization, we are not responsible for the security.”
To try and cut through the clutter Edwards asked the President to intercede: “…sometimes only the executive himself can cut through such inter-departmental differences of opinion,” he wrote in last year’s letter. There was no immediate response.
On November 15, 2011 the Deputy COO of Obama for America, replied the Obama team wasn’t responsible for security or other costs.
This week a campaign officials said: “Presidential campaigns are not responsible for security costs.”
If a question persists Teal Baker wrote: “…we assume it should be directed to the U.S. Secret Service.”
Springfield officials contacted a local representative of the Secret Service but McCarty says they didn’t get too far, telling them: “We don’t pay bills out of here, you’ll need to contact Washington…
After spending a lifetime in politics John C. Calhoun (U.S. Senator, Vice President of the United States, Secretary of War) wrote his brilliant treatise, A Disquisition on Government, which was published posthumously shortly after his death in 1850.
In it Calhoun warned that it is an error to believe that a written constitution alone is “sufficient, of itself, without the aid of any organism except such as is necessary to separate its several departments, and render them independent of each other to counteract the tendency of the numerical majority to oppression and abuse of power” (p. 26). The separation of powers is fine as far as it goes, in other words, but it would never be a sufficient defense against governmental tyranny, said Calhoun.

In a discussion about the eligibility of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to serve as President or Vice President, the following email was sent to the president of the California Republican Assembly after she stated in an email that the U.S. Constitution states that one must be “born in the U.S.A.” to qualify as a “natural born Citizen:
POTUS Usurper Chester Arthur Forced Military To Salute British Flag.
POTUS Usurper Chester Arthur Forced Military To Salute British Flag.:
Back in December, this blog broke the story that former US President Chester Arthur lied – in newspaper interviews with the Brooklyn Eagle – about his parental heritage. These lies covered up the fact that Chester Arthur, at the time of his birth, was a British Subject due to the fact that his father, William Arthur, was not a US citizen at the time Chester was born.
This fact, had it been discovered back when Chester Arthur was running for Vice President, would have been an impediment to his nomination.
As fate would have it, Chester Arthur became President when Garfield was assassinated by a rabid Chester Arthur supporter.
Recently, there has been attempts in the main stream media (Colbert Report and AP propaganda) to normalize the fact that Chester Arthur served as President while also being a closet British subject…..
Obama’s ineligibility: Prepare to defend America – Defeating the political-media complex
Obama’s ineligibility: Prepare to defend America – Defeating the political-media complex:
The elephant in our nation’s political living room is the endemic corruption in Washington, D.C. All of the nation’s problems are ancillary, only symptoms of a cancer, which will eventually kill the United States.
The political-media complex has only contempt for ordinary Americans. And we deserve it because we have allowed corruption to become an acceptable component of the status quo.
Even “Beltway” conservatives count themselves among the ranks of the political-media complex in an attempt to subvert the Constitution.
Rubio may be an excellent senator, but he has never been Constitutionally eligible for the Presidential ticket because he is not a Natural Born Citizen. His parents were not US citizens at the time of his birth.
Biden charging Secret Service for cottage rental:
Since April, Mr. Biden has collected more than $13,000 from the agency charged with protecting him and his family, for use of a rental cottage adjacent to the waterfront home he owns in a Wilmington, Del., neighborhood.
Mr. Biden, listed not as vice president in federal purchasing documents but as “vendor,” is eligible for up to $66,000 by the time the government contract expires in the fall of 2013, the records show.
Officials say the arrangement came about when a previous tenant moved out of the cottage and the Secret Service moved in.

A Most Wonderful Human Being ~ “Movie buffs will recognize this quote from the film: “The Manchurian Candidate” starring Lawrence Harvey and Frank Sinatra.”
“Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.”
Movie buffs will recognize this quote from the film: “The Manchurian Candidate” starring Lawrence Harvey and Frank Sinatra. It is a riveting film, released at the very height of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. The film is a tale of a Soviet Communist plot where brainwashed and conditioned Korean War POWs are released back to the USA with a mission: Return home and assassinate a Presidential Candidate. The Soviets hope that in the ensuing panic and a desire for stability, that Vice-Presidential Candidate [ actually a communist dupe controlled by his wife] would be placed at the top of the ticket and swept into office sympathetically by voters.
The trained assassin Staff Sergeant Shaw [Lawrence Harvey], receives a Medal of Honor for actions in Korea. These actions were, in reality, only memories implanted into the minds of his squad members. Shaw is chosen as the assassin because he is the Step-son of the Vice-Presidential Candidate. And unbeknownst to Shaw, his mother is the planted Communist Agent who will influence his Step-Father’s actions as President. The assassination plot begin to unravel as Shaw’s former Commanding Officer, Captain Marco [Sinatra], deals with his recurring nightmare that slowly reveal discomforting details of a plot to which the soldiers are all to be accomplices. Are you totally confused? Do you think this is too fictionally fantastic? Watch the film again, but this time watch with a “different set of eyes.”
In the meantime, I have attached a short 7 minute film You Tube presentation about “Grinding America Down.” This film clip might amount to “singing to the choir” for most of you.
Grinding America Down
Still there are many, I fear, who would sincerely believe that this is only a bit of hyperbolic anti-Marxism and anti-Communism. It is so passé and overdrawn these days. Or is it? I still hear it opined: “After all, didn’t we win the Cold War? Surely, Barack Obama is not a Communist … he’s just an ordinary Liberal Leftist doing what he thinks is best for America.” We hear this every day and night from the “talking heads.” Welcome to “Conditioning 101.”
“Barack Obama is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being ever to be President.”
Obama has declared war on the Constitution
By Lawrence Sellin Full Story
Before the 2012 election, we must push our state legislatures to pass laws requiring Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates to prove that they are natural born citizens i.e. born in the United States, of citizen parents at the time of birth, in order for them to appear on the state ballot.
Obama has declared war on the Constitution
It seems that former Speaker of the House and Chair of the Democratic National Convention, Nancy Pelosi, might have made a mistake similar to that made by Colonel Nathan R. Jessup (Jack Nicholson) in the movie “A Few Good Men”.
Colonel Jessup issued two concurrent, but conflicting orders, which presumably resulted in him being tried and sent to prison.
One important lesson from the movie is that no one is above the law. Another is that Demi Moore is one foxy chick.
I must admit, however, that Nancy Pelosi is still a very attractive woman for her age, although for some, the enthusiastic application of cosmetics can make one look like an over-ripe tomato.
But I digress.
Allegedly Pelosi issued two different certifications verifying the eligibility of Barack Obama for the Presidency, which were both prepared on the same day and notarized by the same individual.
The Certification of Nomination sent to the state of Hawaii mentioned the Constitutional requirement:
“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 through 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.. ”
The Certification of Nomination sent to the other 49 states did not mention the Constitutional requirement:
“THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively.. ”
If this is true, it would appear that in Pelosi’s view, the Constitutional requirements for Presidential eligibility are optional in 49 out of 50 states or it could simply be a legal safety hatch for any future unpleasantness.
One might hypothesize that Hawaii, knowing that there could be a potential Constitutional problem, demanded legal cover.
One wonders, in such a scenario, if any of the other 49 state Democratic National Committee organizations knew about the different Certifications of Nomination?

[I have collaborated on this with my sister and historian Greg Dehler, author of "Chester Allan Arthur", Published by Nova Science Publishers, Incorporated, 2006 ISBN 1600210791, 9781600210792 192 pages. ]
I’ve been forwarded the actual naturalization record for William Arthur on microfiche, obtained from the Library of Congress. He was naturalized in New York State and became a United States citizen in August 1843.
Chester Arthur perpetrated a fraud as to his eligibility to be Vice President by spreading various lies about his parents’ heritage. President Arthur’s father, William Arthur, became a United States citizen in August 1843. But Chester Arthur was born in 1829. Therefore, he was a British Citizen by descent, and a dual citizen at birth, if not his whole life.
He wasn’t a “natural born citizen” and he knew it.
