IRS Chief: ‘Whenever We Can, We Follow The Law’
Posted on September 13 - from the Liberty Crier
[Ed. note: Is this really acceptable in an agency that can take your bank
account, your home and your business without a trial? Is this acceptable in an agency with
a proven record of attacking their political enemies?]
IRS commissioner John Koskinen probably meant to provide reassurance, but did no such
thing yesterday in testimony yesterday. Via The Hill (hat tip: Gateway Pundit)
“Whenever we can, we follow the law,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways
and Means subcommittee on health on Wednesday.
The response was appropriate:
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who leads the subcommittee, immediately expressed his concern
with the remarks.
“I encourage you to follow the law in all instances,” Brady said.
Why Obama’s use of the term ISIL instead of ISIS is actually really important
Posted on September 13 - from the Blaze
[Ed. note: Words actually do mean things... and we can learn a lot if we
listen to what people say.]
ISIL. ISIS. IS. DAISH. You have probably heard each one of those acronyms at least once
over the last several months as the media and politicians attempt to determine the best way
to refer to the terror group that declared a caliphate spanning Syria and Iraq.
IS simply stands for the Islamic State, while ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq
and Syria. ISIL is the acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which seems
remarkably similar to ISIS. The differentiation between the word ‘Syria’ and the word
‘Levant’ is actually quite significant, however, given the usage of the term by President
Obama and his administration.
“ISIS and ISIL. The President is making a big deal out of this is ISIL, right? The
Administration wants to call it ISIL,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Stu, what’s the
difference between ISIS and ISIL?” “Interesting fact about the Levant,” Stu responded.
“[It] encompasses parts of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and a place called Israel.”
Federal judge envisions 'rape license' for 'right to rape'
Posted on September 13 - from World Net Daily
[Ed. note: The secular progressive concept of utility as opposed any form
of tradition and morality carries a price that that falls most heavily on the innocent.]
Judge Richard Posner, a federal judge with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, recently
become a hero to the pro-”gay marriage” left when, by way of a “legal analysis” free from
the troublesome constraints of logic, case precedent, biology, tradition and reality in
general, he managed to somehow divine a long-hidden constitutional “right” for two dudes
to get “married.” “How can tradition be a reason for anything?” an incredulous Posner
demanded last month of attorneys defending marriage protection amendments in both Wisconsin
It would seem that Posner’s contempt for tradition extends to all things sexual, up to
and including the puritanical presupposition that it’s always wrong for a man to rape a
woman. This idea, according to Posner in his 2011 book “Economic Analysis of the Law” (8th
edition), is evidently an equally archaic tradition that, like the institution of natural
marriage, needs a significant overhaul.
Posner’s suggestion? Perhaps it’s time the government begin issuing “rape licenses” (I
kid you not) since, and based upon an exclusively utilitarian and morally relative
cost-benefit analysis, the “right to rape,” for some men at least, “exceeds the victim’s
physical and emotional pain.”
Who Killed Joan Rivers?
Posted on September 13 - from Chuck Baldwin Live
[Ed. note: Of course it is all conjecture at this point, but we see
far too many patriots leaving us far too soon.]
Writing for Breitbart.com, John Nolte showed more perspicacity than almost anyone I’ve
seen relative to the unexpected death of comedian Joan Rivers. Nolte wrote:
“With the death of Joan Rivers at 81 Thursday, we lost one more icon in a dwindling
breed: the comedian who does not seek the good opinion of the powerful media and
“Just two months before her death, Rivers mocked President Obama as ‘gay’ and First Lady
Michelle Obama as a ‘tranny,’ and caught hell for it from the likes of the Huffington Post.
Those servants to power chided: ‘Rivers took her “jokes” too far yet again this week, when
she hurled a trans slur at the first lady.’”
Nolte continued: “Now Rivers is gone and outside of a handful of comedic insurgents like
Don Rickles, Dennis Miller, and Adam Carolla, we're stuck with Politically Correct Palace
Guards like Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Lena
Dunham, Ricky Gervais, the cast of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and pretty much everyone
associated with Funny or Die--all big government-loving cowards desperate to fit into a
comedic class that believes political correctness is a virtue and those who buck it should
be held up to ridicule.”
Mob Rule Economics

[Ed. note: As for a "living wage," the employer is not hiring people in
order to acquire dependents and become their meal ticket. He is hiring them for what they
While we talk about democracy and equal rights, we seem increasingly to let both private
and government decisions be determined by mob rule. There is nothing democratic about mob
rule. It means that some people's votes are to be overruled by other people's disruptions,
harassments and threats.
The latest examples are the mobs in the streets in cities across the country, demanding
that employers pay a minimum wage of $15 an hour, or else that the government makes them do
so by law. Some of the more gullible observers think the issue is whether what some people
are making now is "a living wage." This misconstrues the whole point of hiring someone to do
work. Those who are being hired are paid for the value of the work they do.
If their work is really worth more than what their employer is paying them, all they have to
do is quit and go work for some other employer, who will pay them what their work is really worth.
If they can't find any other employer who will pay them more, then what makes them think their
work is worth more?
On the eve of another 9/11: Vigilance, America
Posted on September 11 - from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
[Ed. note: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
- George Santayana]
Here we are, on the eve of another solemn anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept.
11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people died in the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade
Center in New York City, at the Pentagon in Washington and in a field in remote Somerset
County, Pa. Thousands more were injured. The nation, deeply scarred.
All manner of security measures -- liberty restrictions in the name of protecting liberty
-- have been in place since then. And no matter if we laud or detest them, the fact remains
that the United States has not experienced a major terrorist attack since then.
Which, given the following tale, is nothing less than a miracle.
The Anti-Christian President in a Post-Christian America
Posted on September 10 - from the Truth Dispatch
[Ed. note: It's been obvious to anyone who has been paying attention... why
he even had an anti-Christian pastor.]
Former Governor and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney says that President Barack Obama
is out of touch on global issues. Conventional wisdom would indicate that Governor Romney
is correct about President Obama’s response to the Islamic State. Claiming that President
Obama is out of touch on global issues might be true, but it is a narrow view of President
Obama’s foreign policy blunders.
When President Obama was first elected, he globetrotted all around the world on an
apology tour to apologize to the Muslim world for America’s alleged injustices against
them. Since then, and during President Obama’s presidency, persecution and mass murder of
Christians at the hands of radical Muslim Jihadists has been on the rise. The latest
fascist antics and attacks by the Islamic State are the most recent attacks against
How did President Obama respond to the Islamic State’s genocide of Christians? There was
no real response of solidarity with the Christians from President Obama. When the genocide of
Christians escalated, eventually leading to the beheading of two American journalists, the pressure
has become too great to ignore. However, President Obama gives a brief pro-Christian statement, but
focuses his entire responses to stand in solidarity with the so-called “moderate” Muslims.
A Swift Solution to Washington Gridlock: Abolish the Senate
Posted on September 9 - from the Federalist
[Ed. note: ... or we could just repeal the 17th Amendment.]
If political celebrity is your thing, there’s no better club to get into than the United
States Senate, the equivalent of Hollywood, Harvard, and the Hall of Fame rolled into one.
Sure, everyone suspects that your true sights are set on the presidency, but since for most
the criticism is true, it’s easy to feign innocence and not take offense.
Every now and then, however, someone becomes a United States senator because he is truly
interested in performing the constitutional duties of a senator. One such person is Tom
Coburn, the retiring senator from Oklahoma, which means his suggestion last week that he’d
be open to the idea of an Article V convention to take on the nation’s challenges is that
much more significant.
Coburn told the congressional weekly The Hill, “I think [George] Mason was prophetic that we
would devolve to where the federal government became too powerful, too big, and too unwieldy.
That’s why he put Article V in.” Senator Coburn, who, according to the article, “has grown
disenchanted with gridlock in Washington,” suggested that approving constitutional amendments
creating term limits, mandating a balanced budget, and re-asserting legislative prerogatives
would allow the federal government to function properly again.
Fear of man
Posted on September 8 - from Conservative News and Views
[Ed. note: The fear of man brings a snare… Proverbs 29:25]
All throughout history terrorists of many nationalities and many religious backgrounds
have used fear to overcome those they seek to annihilate. In the 20th century the images of
German concentration camps reeked with fear so palatable that it can still be felt in
decades old film clips. Unfortunately, the inhumanity of man against man is nothing new.
As long as man occupies this earth, you can be sure that those seeking to conquer others
through persecution and terror will sometimes be victorious.
How do you answer fear?
History, which has taught us that terrorism is nothing new, has also taught us that there
are three responses to terror:
1.Submit to it;
2.Run from it;
3.Stand up to it.
As reports of ISIS filled the news, so did reports of the Iraqi army fleeing in terror.
These troops were trained in warfare and given the weapons to engage in it successfully.
However, no one can give anyone else courage and so instead of staying and facing the enemy,
the Iraqis chose to run. The irony is that many were caught by ISIS and promptly executed.
In those cases, their fear contributed to the outcome they feared most – death.
How do you answer fear?
The Bible has something to say about fear. Proverbs 29:25 states:
The fear of man brings a snare…

Tom DeLay: Obama paralyzed by Muslim sympathies
Posted on September 6 - from WND
[Ed. note: Obama does not want to face the reality of the danger and
threat represented to the United States by ISIS, and he does not want to admit the
connections between al-Qaida and ISIS, because he refuses to understand that we are in a
war against radical Islamic terrorism.]
President Obama’s left-leaning political ideology combined with sympathies for Islam
acquired from being raised by a Muslim stepfather paralyze him as he faces the threat posed
by the Islamic jihadist group ISIS, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told WND in an
“In defending America against radical Islamic terrorism, Barack Obama cannot be trusted,”
“Barack Obama was raised a Muslim, and he claims he is a Christian, and I can’t say for
sure whether he’s a Christian or not, but he has shown over the last few years that he has
great sympathies with Islam,” DeLay explained.
“You combine that with Obama’s political orientation that is far to the left,” he
continued, “and you get a president who hates war, hates the military, and you have a
formula for military inaction when it comes to combating radical Islamic terrorists like
we are seeing in ISIS.”
The Essence of Christianity
Posted on September 5 - from Break Point
[Ed. note: If we are looking after the least among us... who is less
capable than an infant in the womb.]
The apostle James wrote that the essence of Christianity—that which epitomizes “pure and
undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father”—is to care for “orphans and widows in
their distress.” (James 1:27, NASB)
Babies aborted are “orphans” in the truest sense of the word, for they have been
abandoned, by those entrusted to care for them, to the uttermost, even to death. The sheer
number who have been led to slaughter with virtually no opposition even by churches who call
themselves pro-life ought to give us pause before we conclude what we have been practicing
is, in the sight of God, “pure and undefiled religion.”
As to where James came up with his definition of Christianity—divine inspiration, to be
sure. But it also appears he knew his Bible:
Deuteronomy 10:18: He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love
for the alien by giving him food and clothing.
Pastors And Churches Violating First Commandment
Posted on September 4 - from chuckbaldwinlive.com
[Ed. note: Does the Bible really say to go along with evil, just because
the government tells you to?]
Regardless of doctrine or denomination, America’s pastors and churches are noted for
teaching various dos and don’ts to their congregations. Obviously, most churches, regardless
of denomination, subscribe to and teach the Ten Commandments. And, depending on the church
and pastor, they can even get extremely detailed and lengthy in the don’t department--
including many taboos not covered in Moses’ Decalogue. Don’t wear these clothes. Don’t
listen to this music. Don’t shop at these stores. Don’t wear this hairstyle. Don’t
associate with these people. Don’t miss church. Don’t fail to give your tithes and
offerings. Don’t drink this beverage. Don’t abandon this program. Don’t have these
attitudes, etc., etc.
And as a pastor who has been in the Gospel ministry for over 40 years, I also try to be
faithful to those principles of Scripture that deal with the negative. Albeit, I hasten to
say that I refuse to join the many pastors today who are as guilty as the Pharisees of old
in the way they teach the traditions and doctrines of men as being synonymous with the
teaching of Holy Writ--which they are NOT.
In fact, the Pharisees were the bane of Jesus’ earthy life and ministry. They were the
constant thorn in his side: they rejected his authority; they harassed and harangued him;
they constantly tried to incite crowds against him; they ridiculed him; they denigrated his
parents; they scorned the place where he lived; they laughed at him; they led conspiracies
against him; they repeatedly tried to kill him; and, finally, they crucified him. The
Pharisees saw Jesus as a threat to their doctrines, their synagogues, their schools of
higher learning, their politics, and, mostly, their position and authority. And he was!
The Death Of Freedom In Our Schools
Posted on September 3 - from Liberty Crier
[Ed. note: Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children,
brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.
No matter what your perspective on the showdown between locals and law enforcement in
Ferguson, Missouri, there can be no disputing the fact that “local” police should not be
looking or acting like branches of the military.
Unfortunately, in the police state that is America today, we’re going to find ourselves
revisiting Ferguson over and over again. Every time an unarmed citizen gets shot by a police
officer who is armed to the hilt, or inclined to shoot first and ask questions later, or so
concerned about their own safety, to the exclusion of all else, that everything becomes a
potential threat, we’ll find ourselves back in Ferguson territory again.
Here’s the thing, though: whether or not it ever gets reported, whether it incites any
protests or marches or showdowns of epic proportions, whether it elicits any outrage on the
part of the citizenry, Ferguson is already happening over and over again, all around us.
Parents: Watch For These Red Flags at School
Posted on September 2 - from BarbWire
[Ed. note: Be careful of what the young ones in your life pick up at
government indoctrination centers we call public schools.]
As summer winds down, kids don their backpacks and jump on school buses once more. Yet
few parents realize what’s about to descend on those innocent heads.
While your children frolicked at the lake, visited Grandma and sang songs at summer camp,
the leaders of America’s education system prepared more essential “LGBT” lessons to infuse
into the hearts of Chloe, Emma and James. Most will be packed with insidious, Christ-less
lies that present great risk to every child’s medical, social and spiritual future.
Grassroots efforts by frustrated parents are trying to eject the leftist Common Core
standards, but meanwhile, educators are being pressured to get that “gay” subject in front
of as many kids as possible. Consulting the essential wisdom of the Huffington Post “Gay
Voices”page, we learn that one high-school social studies teacher who just “came out” as
homosexual last year is determined to weave homosexual themes into the classroom wherever
possible. His method will be to assume a boy might not be heterosexual, for instance. So
when chatting with a male student about dating, he will refer to his possible girlfriend or
boyfriend, to make him feel more comfortable.
Labor Union Accomplishments
Posted on September 1 - from Political Christian
[Ed. note: I have seen first hand the destructive nature of labor unions.
There is a reason they are losing membership among private sector workers.]
Since this is Labor Day, I thought it would be a good time to look at the roll of labor
unions, not from the theoretical perspective which any honest evaluation would reveal that
they function to benefit their members, when convenient, to the detriment of the rest of
society, but from personal experience that, somehow, shows exactly the same thing.
As a young man I went to work in a family owned clothing manufacturing business for my new
wife’s grandfather in the village of Richlandtown, PA. We made nice quality ladies blouses,
a product our open trade policy has since all but destroyed our domestic production. My job
included various record keeping and payroll functions along with some production supervision.
Included were my periodic sessions with the union business agent as we would review the
employment rolls to be certain of dues payment compliance. The business agent was a union
thug, more suited for banging heads than using his. He was an amiable enough thug though and
we got along reasonably well… about as well can with someone running a form of the protection
The union was the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU), at one time, one
of the largest unions in the country. The other union in the area was the Amalgamated
Clothing and Textile Workers Union. There was not a whole lot of difference between the
two, but Amalgamated shops paid their workers ten cents an hour more, and that differential
actually cost us some workers. It may not seem like much, like the seven and a half cents
from Pajama Game, but in those days, late sixties and early seventies it was almost unheard
of for a woman factory worker to make a hundred dollars in a week. After all, two thousand
dollars could by you a pretty nice new car, six thousand would buy you a shiny new Cadillac.
The Permanently Aggrieved
Posted on September 17 - from Tea Party Nation
[Ed. note: This is about societal control, over every aspect of our lives.
I used to be a pick your battles kind of guy, but not any more.]
Welcome to 2014, a year in which being aggrieved on behalf of someone else has become a
multi Billion Dollar cottage industry. Buckets of cash are waiting to be raked in by
liberals self appointing themselves to speak out on behalf of a group who they feel should
be upset about something. The something is not all that important. In fact, the more trivial
the better, since defending trivial matters is damned near impossible.
There's nothing more trivial than the logo for a professional sports franchise. It's
nothing more than marketing material, and usually means not one thing to anyone outside of
its own fan base. So, of course, a group of liberal lawyers decided that in their arrogant
opinion, every single Native American ought to be upset, rather than mildly flattered, that
a professional sports franchise would want to be identified with their people. Further,
they decided, without invitation, that they would level an attack against the horror of
that logo and name on behalf of the party who did not have the good sense to be sufficiently
aggrieved prior to their having spoken up on their behalf. the result is beautiful, since
no one really cares to come out in defense, seeing as how the name Redskins and the
accompanying logo only matter to those who make up the fan base, winning a national debate
becomes much easier when the debate is one sided. Truly, under normal circumstances, I
couldn't care less about what a Football team from Washington D.C. calls itself. Times
are changed though, and I recognize a larger picture forming here.
This is about societal control, over every aspect of our lives. I used to be a pick your
battles kind of guy, but not any more. Liberals must be fought and defeated at every
instance of their trying to inflict their control over us. There is not one positive thing
that they've ever contributed to anything, and like any parasite, they'll eventually end up
killing the host, which for the purpose of our discussion, is every productive member of our
society, those who work and pay taxes.
Losing the Abortion Debate, Planned Parenthood Abandons the Term “Pro-Choice”
Posted on September 10 - from Life News
[Ed. note: When the pro-choice community frames abortion as a difficult
decision . . . It is a tacit acknowledgment that terminating a pregnancy is a moral issue
requiring an ethical debate.]
Pro-choice advocates are on the ropes, which is why they’re ditching their sheep’s
clothing and baring their fangs. I’ll explain why.
If Roe v. Wade were overturned tomorrow, we would celebrate, right? Well, yes, but not
so fast. A fringe element of the pro-choice movement has always insisted that Roe, even
though it legalized abortion in the United States, didn’t go far enough. You see, in his
majority opinion in the fateful 1973 Supreme Court case, Justice Harry Blackmun established
a number of criteria for legal abortion, among them the so-called “viability test.”
According to Blackmun, if a fetus lacks viability outside the womb, it also lacks a
component of personhood, and therefore a right to life. In the years since Roe, of course,
viability has become a moving target, advancing ever earlier in pregnancy as medical
technology advances. Now babies have been successfully delivered as early as 23 weeks,
showing just how arbitrary the Court’s viability test is.
Agenda 21 Simplified – The Standardization of Common Core
Posted on September 10 - from Freedom
[Ed. note: Many in the academic community are more interested in inflicting
their vision of heaven on earth on the rest of us than in educating our students in the pursuit
of truth... wherever it may be found.]
Hanging in the hallways of Northeastern State University's Broken Arrow Oklahoma campus
are signs that state the following: Developing Global Citizens for the 21st century and a
Sustainable Future. It's hard to believe because Oklahoma is said to be one of the most
conservative states in the union; however, the state's universities are overflowing with
hard-core leftists who are attempting to change the worldview of our younger generations.
I specifically remember the very last day of my last class right before graduation. We
watched a video that was essentially describing the end game goals of UN Agenda 21, and
their plans to use the wealth of the United States to redistribute to third world countries.
The video was complete with blaming capitalism and gun owners (of course) for all of the
world's problems and it was very convincing in its argument that America owed the world a
"climate debt" because of our greedy, industrial society.
I found this very interesting because this was around the same time that Common Core was
beginning to appear in the education arena. The point is that Common Core, and education in
general, are vehicles through which UN's Agenda 21 will secure its own future.
‘Armed Patriots’: the Private Citizens out to Secure the U.S. Border

one local resident. “The dogs don’t bark as much. I can actually get some sleep.”]

The Rocky Horror Parenting Show
Posted on September 12 - from Barb Wire
[Ed. note: It's time we remove ourselves from this ungodly organization.]
Most parenting “trends” are bad. In general, as a parent, you should strive to be as
old-fashioned as possible. Even if your children subsequently rebel against your authority
— as, predictably, most kids do — you need to give them an actual authority to rebel
against. And then you crush the rebellion like Darth Vader wiping out Alderaan.
Trendy progressive parents nowadays are into gender neutrality. They don’t want to
impose oppressive gender norms on their kids because having normal kids is wrong, or
something. What trendy progressive parents want is for their kids to be hopelessly
confused weirdos, so that the parents then have a “cause” to crusade for. Nothing else
can explain this Huffington Post column by Erika Kleinman:
When Gender Norms Didn’t Work for My Kid
I cut my 3-year-old daughter’s hair really short. She had asked me, specifically, “Can
you cut my hair like a boy? Really, really short?” At first I gave her a bob. Then a
shorter bob. Then finally, when she asked yet another time, I said to myself, “Why am I
avoiding this? Let’s do it.” I got out the clippers.
An Open Letter To My Friends In Law Enforcement
Posted on September 8 - from chuckbaldwinlive.com
[Ed. note: Based on official statistical data, we are eight times more
likely to be killed by a police officer than we are by a terrorist.]
When I was a youngster, my dad told me, “Son, a policeman is your friend.” Through his
jail and prison ministry, Dad became a personal friend of our county sheriff (two of them,
as a matter of fact)--as well as scores of deputies and city police officers. For all of my
life, I have taken Dad’s maxim to heart. In fact, for all of my teen years, law enforcement
was my chosen profession. I wanted to go into law enforcement real bad. It took a divine
call to Gospel ministry to change my plans.
Throughout my adult life, I have enjoyed the friendship of many peace officers. The
county sheriff where I lived in Florida made me an honorary deputy sheriff. I still have
the credentials to prove it. I count scores (and maybe hundreds) of law enforcement officers
around the country as friends. In fact, there are scores of peace officers across the country
that financially support my work. I have had kinfolk serve in various positions of law
enforcement. Anyone who knows anything about me knows I have been a law and order guy
all of my life.
With the above said, it is extremely important that this letter be written, because so many
honorable American traditions and customs are being radically and rapidly changed--including
the philosophies, standard operating procedures, and rules of engagement of law enforcement.
And the change is not for the better.
Let me just be blunt: ever since Ronald Reagan left office, both Republican and Democrat
presidential administrations--along with both Republican and Democrat congresses--in
Washington, D.C., are turning the United States of America into a giant Police State. And
that means that our local and State police agencies are being transformed before our very
eyes into the enforcement arm of this burgeoning Police State. And one of the biggest
reasons for this growing threat to our liberties is that it seems that you--our local and
State police officers and sheriff’s deputies--do not understand that you are the ones that
are being used to create this nefarious Police State.
US Signs Agreement With Mexico Protecting Mexican Workers, Including Illegals

origin or immigration status all workers have rights and there are processes to safeguard
“This is what makes this country so great,” the ambassador said.
The four-page memorandum states in the “Overall Objective” section, in part, that its
purpose is: “to establish a collaborative relationship to provide Mexican Nationals in the
United States with information, guidance, and access to education and training resources to
help them understand and exercise their workplace rights, particularly with regard to
reducing violations against them under the laws and regulations that are administered and
enforced by EEOC.”

The debate on Christianity in class has reached the ultimate irony. Those who object to
it, forget one thing: you cannot keep Christianity out of class and still stay historically
accurate. Don’t the opponents know that? Or do they?
Christianity in American history
Yesterday, Ricki Pepin published this essay at Political Outcast. He described something
that should be out of a movie, except it happened:
I was recently invited to teach a 12-week Constitution course using a room at a local
public high school in Springboro, Ohio. The class was open to the public – parents,
grandparents, students. A few community agitators seized this opportunity to flex their
politically correct muscles by calling in the ACLU and threatening a lawsuit if we did not
cancel the class.
The ACLU informed us that if we proceeded with this class we would be violating the
students’ First Amendment rights.
Say what? Teaching about the Constitution would breach students’ rights under that Constitution?
And why would a class in the Constitution breach students’ rights? Because it would hold too much religious content.
Fed Vice Chairman Warns: Your Bank May Seize Your Money to Recapitalize Itself

At the height of the financial crisis in 2008 the U.S. government forced some of the
countries largest banks to take “bailout” funds amounting to billions of dollars in order
to keep them from going bankrupt. It was a move designed to not only keep too-big-to-fail
financial institutions afloat, but one that would inspire confidence and keep American
consumers spending. As a result, the last several years have seen stock markets reach record
highs with Americans continuing to rack up personal debt for real estate, vehicles, education,
and consumer goods as if the financial crisis never happened.
But the purported recovery may not be everything that government officials and
influential financial leaders have made it out to be.
Recent comments delivered by Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer suggest that
not only are global and domestic economies still struggling, but the U.S. government itself
is preparing financial contingency plans in anticipation of another widespread economic
However, this time around, according to Fischer, the government won’t be bailing out
financial institutions in need of cash. Instead, failing banks will turn directly to their
unsecured creditors when they need money. And within this context, that means you.
How Are ISIS And Global Warming Connected?

As this is happening, in real time all around the globe, our President has made it a point to
appear as if he hasn't a worry in the world. In fact, he gave a speech to the American Legion last
week in which he told the largest organization of retired former members of the military that in
his view, America has never been more capable of fighting her enemies, both foreign and domestic.
As Barack Obama continues his fantasy golf trail, playing at all of the terrific courses that
appear on every bucket list compiled by anyone who owns a set of clubs, the world around him,
that one called reality that you and I live in, burns baby burns.
Many believe that this points to an Obama detached, but I disagree. I wish that our
current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania were detached, he'd do far less damage to our nation
that way. The fact is however, in that great evil versus stupid debate, the correct answer
is yes. Barack Obama's great transformation of America included the destruction of our
society on almost every level, and with only a little over two years left to go in his
tenure as our chief executive, he's got a lot of work to do. The decimation of our military
and our interests around the globe can only be achieved if our forces are demoralized, from
the leadership straight down to the guys in the field.
As the budget for our fighting forces is squeezed to levels not seen since the
head-in-sand days just prior to Japan's success at awakening the sleeping giant, Barack
Obama has identified that real enemy against which, we should be preparing to battle. Global
Warming and the Tea Party, those are the real existential threats against the United States.
Conservatives singing, "God Bless America," with their hands over their hearts and a totally
fabricated non existent hoax are what our military should be standing guard against, and not
those peaceful Muslims practicing that more violent form of Jihad, rather than the moderate,
"inner struggle," variety.
This Obama Administration Proposal Would Effectively Authorize Some Americans Seceding
Posted on September 3 - from The Daily Signal
[Ed. note: At worst, the Obama administration’s proposal is
unconstitutional, and as a number of U.S. senators have told the administration, it is
“at best offensive to the character of a country devoted to the advancement of all its
citizens regardless of race.”]
In its latest assault on the U.S. Constitution, the Obama administration is proposing to
recognize so-called “Native” Hawaiians as an Indian tribe entitled to separate and become an
independent sovereign and to “reestablish” a “government-to-government relationship between the
United State and the Native Hawaiian community.”
Such an unconstitutional action would amount to authorizing secession for certain residents
It would also implicitly authorize government-sanctioned, discriminatory conduct against
any other residents who don’t meet the explicit ancestry and blood-quantum requirements to
be considered a “Native.” This would balkanize Hawaii, dividing the islands into separate
racial and ethnic enclaves, and undo “the political bargain through which Hawaii secured
its admission into the Union.”
At the end of June, the Department of the Interior issued an “Advanced Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking” that set out the administration’s plan, with the opportunity for the public to file
comments ending on August 19. No doubt to its chagrin, the administration encountered strong
opposition at a series of hearings the Interior Department held in Hawaii in June and July,
with one official from the state Office of Hawaiian Affairs being loudly booed when she
declared her support for the plan.
The Corrupt Obama justice strikes again.

[Ed. note: Do we wonder why it's sometimes called the Department of
In the almost 240 years of our Republic, there has never been a Department of Justice
more corrupt than the current DOJ under the leadership of Eric Holder. Instead of trying
to advance justice, the rule of law and the principles of the Constitution, Holder is using
DOJ for just the opposite.
The left has adopted a “sue and settle” strategy where left wing groups sue and then the
Department of Justice “settles” the case on favorable terms to the leftists.
As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported
themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government
has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets.

On July 10, Barack “I owe these unions” Obama’s Office of Management and Budget issued
a policy memorandum to all federal department and agency heads “encouraging” the use of
costly project labor agreements (PLAs) that pushed unionized labor to the front of the
line when hiring for federal construction projects. This memorandum was issued in
coordination with Executive Order 13502 which further clarifies the union preference for
projects over $25 million.
These union workers represent only about 16% of the construction labor force, yet after
supplying millions of dollars to the Obama campaign and thousands of foot soldiers to
execute the political ground game, they are now in the preferred position for the taxpayer
financed government projects.
