The Fourth and Other Things

I want to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a joyous Fourth of July. We’ve had a dark several weeks, and the thought of celebrating what we see as in dire straits is difficult at best. But America is still alive, there are still millions of people who believe in her, regardless what the press would have us believe.

This particular verse seems relevant at the moment.

O beautiful for pilgrim feet, 

Whose stern impassion’d stress

A thoroughfare for freedom beat

Across the wilderness!

America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw, 

Confirm thy soul in self-control, 

Thy liberty in law!

Our body politic lacks plenty of self-control these days on all sides, but the last line is key. The only way to confirm liberty is to rely on the rule of law, not the rule of whim. When courts take it upon themselves to redefine the constitution based on the prevailing cultural whim rather than have legislatures address the law to conform to democratic self government, we have begun marching down the latter road toward autocracy. When government officials levy ruinous fines over wedding cakes based on their own personal vindictiveness, we are walking back toward the “swarms of Officers sent to harass our people and eat out their substance” noted in the Declaration of Independence. Ours recourse is in the rule of law created by a self-governing free people, even though that does seem at times to be a nearly impossible goal.

That doesn’t mean our best days are behind us. It just means there’s a lot of hard work ahead of us. In the meantime, we’ll fly the banner of the free and remember why we sough independence from far-flung autocrats in the first place. Have a wonderful 4th of July. And God Bless each and every one of  you.

And now for something to cleanse the palate.

Part 5-Conclusion to What About a Constitutional Convention

In Part Four we discussed who was behind the push for a Constitutional convention. We found out that the Republican National Committee, the Committee on the Constitutional System, Former Sec. of the Treasury C.Douglas Dillion, and former Counsel to the President, Lloyd N. Cutler all had a vested interest in getting a convention going. We learned that behind the scenes it’s big money and big power who would love for a convention to be called in the name of a Balanced Budget Amendment Convention. What they really want is a chance to change the Constitution to serve themselves.

I mentioned last time an organization called ALEC. founded in 1973, it defines itself as a non-partisan membership organization of conservative state legislators, boasting 2,700, members. Its main founder, Paul Weyrich, was one of the most powerful conservative leaders of his time. Weyrich lamented the fact that we have no “shadow cabinets” like those in Europe who have parliamentary government. They only way that will happen is if the process (34 states call for a convention) is successful.

It’s possible that ALEC was formed just for that purpose. A July 14,2011, L.A. Times article announced that government watchdog, Common Cause, would issue a challenge to ALEC’s nonprofit status, on the grounds that ALEC “spends most of its resources lobbying, in violation of the rules governing nonprofit organizations. And yes! they lobby.

It’s definition as an organization of state legislators only reveals half its function. It appears that is a mere cover to covert activities behind closed doors. Its major funding is not from membership fees, but large corporations and charitable funds, including the internationalist, one-worlder Bill Gates. Its 2007 budge was $7.8 million, with nearly $3.2m in assets, over 98% of its revenue comes from sources other than legislative dues, primarily from corporations who have ALEC membership, and corporate foundations. 

Corporations sit on all nine ALEC task forces and Vote with legislators to approve “model” bills. They have their own corporate governing board which meets jointly with the legislative board. These so-called “model bills” reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations. In ALEC’s own words, corporations have “a VOICE and a VOTE on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in our states.

Through ALEC, behind closed doors, corporations hand state legislators the changes to the law they desire that directly benefit their bottom line. They fund almost all of ALEC’s operations. Participating legislators, overwhelmingly conservative Republicans, then bring those proposals home and introduce them in statehouses across the land, without disclosing that corporations crafted and voted on the bills. ALEC boast that it has over 1,000 of these bills introduced by legislative members every year, with on in every five of them enacted into law. 

ALEC describes itself as a “unique,” “unparalleled” and “unmatched” organization. It might be right. It’s as if a state legislature had been reconstituted, and corporations had pushed the people out the door.

I have to say in all honesty that I got a goodly amount of this info from liberal sites, but before you rush to judgement, ask yourself, “Who else would expose ALEC?” No conservative group, that’s for certain. They’re in the thick of this government take over. Also, if these reports are false, reporters could and would risk lawsuits by publishing lies. Truth is truth where ever it’s found.

So, then the question is– WHAT CAN WE DO?

How CAN states safely put Big Government back into its Constitutional Cage? If you ask your state legislators, frustrated by our opposition to ALEC’s planned CC, we are told repeatedly, “What are we suppose to do then? Nothing?!!” It’s a good question. Here are two suggestions, one glaringly in our faces:

BEGIN NOW TO INVOKE THE 10th AMENDMENT! It’s alive, awaiting our actions. Read it:

ARTICLE X – -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.” To understand this fully, you need to read Article 1, Section 8, which lists the only powers Congress has. All other powers belong to the States. Congress has no power to dictate laws pertaining to education, gun rights, health-care vaccinations, food safety, and the myriad other aspects of our lives. When the pass the bills relating to those subjects, they apply only to territories and possession of the US. ( See Clause 18 in Article 1, Section 8 – you’ll have to count them; they’re not numbered.)

In 1993 when Hillary was working behind closed doors with the Health Care Interdepartmental working Group, Walter Zellman had, apparently, at the behest of Clinton, posed a question to the Department of Justice as to whether the Feds could force the States to adopt a National Health Care plan. Here’s the DOJ’s response

Q. may the federal government use other actors in the governmental system and the private sector as its agents and give them orders as though they were part of a prefectorial system?

A. No. State governments are independent, although subordinated, sovereignties, not subdivisions of the Fed. government. Although the Fed. gov. may regulate many of their functions directly (as in the Clean Water act) it may not require them to exercise their own governmental powers in a manner dictated by federal law. The states may be encourage, bribed or threatened into entering into cont federal state programs but they may not be commanded directly to use their own governmental apparatus in the service of federal policy. There is a modest jurisprudence of the Tenth Amendment that seems to have settled on this proposition. 

Fact: There is no such thing as a “subordinated sovereign” although many state legislators believe that.

We all know how they bribe etc. They withhold huge chunks of money. So we can complain all we want that the the fed. gov. has usurped the States power, when in fact the states acquiesced in every case. It started with the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972. Known commonly as Revenue Sharing.

The good news is that there is a way to untangle this mess. In 1995, Oklahoma State Rep. Charles Key introduced a bill titled, “State Sovereignty & Federal Tax Fund Act.” It passed unanimously in the House went to the Senate and was buried amidst the ashes of the Bombed Murrah Fed. Building.

This Act would establish an escrow account within the state. All taxes collected – including alcohol, tobacco, liquor, Fed. withholding, road taxes, etc. would be held. The state keeps all interest on the money and sends the funds to D.C.

Finally in closing, It’s been said that the Center for Constitutional Studies wants to wait to call a CC until we are in a 1929 type depression. That way people would readily except whatever was offered. That time is growing close, as we can see daily. Rexford Tugwell was a member of the CCS and the lead author of the Constitution for the NewStates of America.

Check it out. See what America looks like under this New Constitution. There are no “states” by the way, just ten regions ruled by appointed overseers; no gun rights, free speech, etc. Think it can’t happen? You thought the court would strike down same sex marriage, didn’t you? You thought having the House and Senate would make a difference.

What we have to do is explain to everyone who thinks a Constitutional convention is a great idea that it’s not. It merely puts a bunch of men in a room, men whose interest are not ours, and giving them an opportunity to rewrite the Constitution. Instead, invoking the 10th Amendment and passing the State Sovereignty and Fed. Tax Fund Act would be a great first step. After all, we have nothing to lose at this point and maybe everything to gain.  It’s a long shot, of course it is, but do you have a better idea.

I realize this has been a very long and at times technical item, but I felt it was very important to get this out there. We’ve handed most of our freedoms over to government without so much as a whimper. Isn’t it time we at least take a stand to save the country? Or maybe it doesn’t matter to you. Maybe you’ve already thrown up your hands and said “Let them do what they want.” If they do you won’t be happy. You won’t be free, You won’t be anything. Tell me if you think this was worth knowing about.

All the News You Didn’t Want to Know

If your still think John Kasich would make a good president, and if there’s still going to be elections come 2016, this might be why you should rethink your decision.

Gov. Kasich keeps misrepresenting what the Obamacare Medicaid expansion is and how it works, because Ohio’s press doesn’t know–or care–to report that Kasich is lying.

In a Jan. 23 interview on Cincinnati’s 70 WLW Kasich stuck to his insistence that the Ocare Medicaid expansion “has nothing to do with Obamacare” and was a decision he made to “get our money back.”

States expanding their Medicaid programs to comply with Ocare are doing so for the promise of big bucks of new federal funding. It’s central to the Dems 2010 law.

Not so says Kasich, Ocare Medicaid will be funded with Ohio money that would otherwise go elsewhere. We’re talking billions here, and Kasich’s false talking points are far from garden-variety political spin. He included Ocare M., expansion in his budget plan last Feb., and has been lying about it ever since.

Ohio’s MSM should be speaking out about this but it’s hard when you realize they’re all busy cheering OcareM expension. Most talk radio hosts seem to think J.K. can do no wrong, and the Ohio Rep. Party has worked to blacklist anyone who tries to hold him accountable. In the end this is going to cost Ohioans about a billion a year in taxpayer money. This gives Kasich a pass, and I’d say we should pass him by as well. We don’t need any more liars in the White House. There just isn’t any room.

******************************

In my search for a silver lining to the abominable conclusions made by those black robed lawyers who say this homosexual marriage is now the law of the land, (actually it isn’t until the Congress makes it a law, the court can only hand down opinions not write laws. We let them do that. Something we should stop.) anyway, while I was looking for something, anything to smile about concerning this mess I hit upon this. Muslims! Yes, Muslims, you know, those messengers of peace. Yeah, those guys. Anyway, the Daily Beast managed to find a few that favored gay marriage. (they should stay away from tall buildings)But the important word here is few.

It struck me that what better way to keep them from making this place their home then to tell that what has just transpired and that it would be best for their sensitive minds to stay were they are and not cross the ocean. After all, doing so would be, to use a biblical reference, like throwing themselves in the Lions den. And–other than our high standard of living, there’s not  much in America for Muslims to like.

For example, no arranged marriages (no marriages at all, if the left have their way) Dogs roam the street and on occasion feel it necessary to lick a hand or leg, whichever is available at the time. And Muslims see dogs as just a step higher than pigs. More on that in a moment. We don’t have dress codes (mores the pity) people can wear clothes as tight as they want over bodies way to big, and of course we’re notorious for drinking alcohol. And of course there is the desire by most Americans in the summer time to eat as much Pork in as many different ways as one can think of so long as it’s slathered with some sort of spicy sauce or rub.

I think we should also reiterate when telling them about America that here, two men or two women can marry each other and soon any number of people will be able to do so once they can find a bed for them all to fit into. I wouldn’t mention that it’s only a matter of time before moms will marry sons, daughters marry fathers, adults marry children, yes, freedom is a wonderful thing, but it’s better to stay away.

At least that’s how I see it!

As you know rainbows are breaking out all over. They’re everywhere, but sometimes they show up in the middle of a rain storm. Take Turkey for instance. Just the other day all these rainbow warriors were peacefully parading down the streets determined to make everyone aware that sex is the main driving force of their lives, and that homosexual men have this strange fixation of wearing as little as possible in the way of clothing when walking in a parade.

Have you ever wondered why homosexual men always try to be big burly muscle men? It’s sort of like they can’t come to terms with having to love someone with more hair on their chest then they have.

  Anyway, I digress, there they were, having the time of their lives when it all got rained on. Well maybe not rain, seems like the Turkish police showed up and hosed them all down. Of course don’t expect Mr. Paint the White House Rainbows to say anything about it. He and President Erdogan are close, very close.

==========================

Finally here’s something to keep you awake tonight. According to David Stockman–At the present time, there are 210 million adult Americans between the ages of 16 and 68–to take a plausible measure of the potential work force. That amounts to 420 billion potential labor hours, if we accept the convention that all adults are at least theoretically capable of holding a full-time job, (2,000 hors/year) and pulling their share of society’s needs for production and work effort.

By contrast, during 2014, only 240 billion hours were actually supplied to the US economy, according to the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) estimates. Technically, therefore, there were 180 billion unemployed labor hours, meaning that the real unemployment rate was 42.9%, not 5.5%. Now that’s something to think about.

Part 4–What About a Constitutional Convention?

WHO OR WHAT IS BEHIND THIS CURRENT MARCH TO FACILITATE AMERICA’S DOOM?

A brief History: The proponents of a CC have been at it for nearly fifty years now. In 1964 the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations funded and orchestrated – via the CSDI (Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions) the drafting of a new constitution for America. This model constitution, drawing upon the efforts of more than 100 people, took ten years to write. The 40th draft was published in a book titled “The Emerging Constitution,” by Rexford G. Tugwell (Harper & Row, 1974) The project produced the proposed “Constitution for the NewStates of America.”

“In the event you would be inclined to dismiss the relevance of the proposed new constitution, bear in mind that it is the product of a tax-exempt think-tank which took ten years, $25,000,000.oo and the collaboration of over one-hundred like-minded individuals. . . It would be folly to believe this investment is intended to be merely an exercise in political theory. The frightening reality is, the planners are serious in their efforts to impose a new constitution upon the people of the America as we enter a new century.” –Col. Arch Roberts, Committee to Restore the Constitution. 

One year following publication of Tugwell’s plan – 1975 – Nelson Rockefeller, then the president of the U.S. Senate, engineered the introduction of HCR 28 calling for an unlimited CC to be held in the Bicentennial year, 1976. With this time line, we can clearly see they meant business and certainly wasting no time to get it done.

“Visible collusion of the Congress with world government organizations created a backlash which doomed the grandiose Fourth of July Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. . . Arrogance was the seed of its undoing.” –Col. Arch Roberts.

Abandoning plan one, the conspirators moved directly to the state legislatures, and operating behind a scree of “conservative” organizations, began lobbying the states. Although ALEC’s (The American Legislative Exchange Council) hired lawyer, John Armor, was the foremost lobbyist to state legislators in the decades-long effort to win the required number of state calls via the “balanced budget amendment” resolution, he wasn’t alone.

Some-not all-of the other players were the National Taxpayers’ Union, Republican National Committee, Committee of the Constitutional System, Former Sec. of the Treasury, Douglas Dillion, and former Counsel to the Pres. Lloyd Cutler. By 1983, 32 of the 34 states needed had passed CC resolutions. They were stopped in their tracks by an unsung hero from Chicago, Doug Kelly, who spent the rest of his life covering our backs.

Three states rescinded their call on his watch; the dragon slept until 1993 when 12 states simultaneously introduced calls, once again coming from ALEC, John Armor and Republican states. Successfully stopping that volley, we had barely caught our breath when the Conference of States hit in Jan. 95, a back-door attempt at a CC.

The model resolutions for the COS came from the National Council of State Legislators (NCSL) the organization that dumbs down liberal (mostly democratic) legislators as ALEC does the conservative (republicans). ALEC passed a resolution supporting the COS so Republicans joined the fray.

They do seem to be big on dates: The COS was slated to take place in “historical Philadelphia” Oct. 22nd through 25th of 95. falling on the Oct. 24th Fifty-year anniversary of the UN. By the Grace of God that plan failed. Now, once again the CC resolutions are being swiftly introduced in states as this is being written, are “model legislation” again, from ALEC.

Part 3-What About a Constitutional Convention

We left off, before the sky began to fall down around us with the possibility that just as with the original Continental Congress this new endeavor for a CC could have the same result. That being that the original signers were only to “amend the Articles of Confederation.” Instead, they formed a committee of the whole, took a vote and it was done. The Articles were resolved and replaced by the Constitution.

According to Ron Natelson, who wrote the handbook for a CC “Of course, abuses of the Article V amendment processes are possible.”

What? Abuses such as throwing off the shackles of their instructions to amend the U.S. Constitution? Bringing forth a new constitution already mapped? Yes. He went on to say that “the possibility must be viewed against the clear and present danger to individual rights and freedom of doing nothing.” in other words, go for it and let’s see what happens!

From Natelson’s book, “Amending the Constitution by Convention: A complete View of the Founders’ Plan,”  p 2. Quoted in a “Position on an Article V Federal Constitutional amendment Convention,” by the Institute of Principled Policy. A worthy read. principledpolicy.com

The very fist paragraph in the Handbook’s “Executive Summary” states: the balanced budget amendment is overwhelmingly supported by the America people. Polls over the last several months by CNN, Fox News, and Mason-Dixon show that nearly three-fourths of Americans favor a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.”

Why are we not surprised by that statement? Mainstream news channels have been helping this along, first discussing the deterioration of the economy, and then whipping viewers into a frenzied belief that “a balanced budge amendment” will heal it all. Many of the Tea Party’s are also backing the plan.

State legislators who’ve bought into this trap of “moving fast” to sponsor the resolution should be aware of the following disclaimer in the Handbook. You’ll find it in small, fine proint at the very bottom of the “About ALEC” section on the first page of the Handbook. Caveat emptor!

“Nothing in this Handbook should be construed as legal advice; seek competent counsel in your own state.”

Now let us lay some facts on the table

Under article V, the founders established two methods for future generations to add amendments to the Constitution.

Under method 1: Two-thirds of both houses of Congress can propose an amendment, and then three-fourth of the states ratify it…or not.

Under method 2: Two-thirds (34) of the states call for a federal constitutional convention, and then three-fourth of the states ratify whatever amendments are proposed by the convention.

Notice that ratification by states does not specify state legislatures! When they see the statement below, in the Handbook and in nearly every piece produced by the advocates of a CC they automatically think state legislators. Like this one:

“Proposing amendments through a convention, as in Congress, is still only a method of proposing amendments. No amendment is effective unless ratified by three-fourths of the states.” ( now 38 of 50) p.9

That is one of the most dangerous lie’s-by-omission the  promoters are telling state legislators (and the people), who naively believe that they would be able to quash any bad amendments(s), or even a substitute Constitution. They would simply refuse to ratify; so no harm can come even if it became uncontrollable.

Artice V authorizes “Congress” to decide on the mode of ratification: it can either be by State Legislatures or by Ratifying Conventions. (In 1933 the 21 amendment-lifting the prohibition on alcohol was ratified by conventions.)

Supreme Court, Chief Justice Warren Burger, in a letter of June 22, 1983, confirms the dangers, stating:

“I have also repeatedly given my opinion that there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a CC. The convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda. Congress might try to limit the convention to one amendment or to one issue, but there is no way to assure that the convention would obey. After a convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the convention if we don’t like its agenda. The meeting in 1787 ignored the limit placed by the confederation Congress for the sole and express purpose of writing a new Constitution.

From Corpus Jurus Secondum 16 C.J. S 9, a compilation of State Supreme court findings, we read,

“The members of a CC are the direct representatives of the people (1) and, as such, they may exercise all sovereign powers that are vested in the people of the state. (2) They derive their powers, not from the legislature, but the people. (3) and, heance, their power may not in any respect be limited or restrained by the legislature. Under this view, it is a Legislative Body of the Highest Order (4) and may not only frame, but may also enact and promulgate, Constitution.(5)”

James Madison himself, father of the Constitution, warned against convening a second constitutional convention. When he learned that New York and Virginia were actively calling or an article V convention in 1788 , just months after ratification of the Constitution, he was horrified. He counseled”

“If a General Convention were to take place for the avowed and sole purpose of revising the Constitution, it would naturally consider itself as having a greater latitude than the Congress… It would consequently give greater agitation to the public mind; an election into it would be courted by the most violent partisans or both sides… and would no doubt contain individuals of insidious views, who, under the mask of seeking alterations popular in some parts…might have the dangerous opportunity of sapping the very foundations of the fabric…

“Having witnessed the difficulties and dangers experienced by the first Convention, I should tremble for the result of a second, meeting in the present temper in America.” Writter by James Madison to G.L. Turberville, Nov. 2, 1788, 

A note of caution: While it does take 34 states to call for a CC, all of them must be for the same purpose. The calls already made are calling for a balanced budge amendment. This new track the promoters are taking doesn’t use the same language. They’re calling for an amendment forcing Congress to stay within its budget, and although it sounds different, it is the same purpose: a balanced budget. Any new calls can be aggregated into the former standing calls.

I wonder if it has occurred to those legislatures that the Congress could easily comply with that amendment simply by expanding its budget. And once again, since they ignore the constitution and its amendments, why would they adhere to a new one?

And So It Begins

All right, let me get this straight. The White house spent millions trying to get the computer programs for health care to work right, months passed and still the thing was botched up. Yet in less than twelve hours he can colorize the front of the White House in rainbow strips. Now the fact that he did this knowing that he was spitting in the faces of the 70 to 80 percent of Americans that disagreed with the edicts handed out by an unelected body of 9 black robed lawyers seemed lost on him.

The last person who decided he didn’t need to worry about offending the citizens of America was King George III and that I have to tell you ended badly. For the King. Personally, I am sick to death of being told by those who think their my betters, what I can and can’t believe. What I can and can’t do, and what I can and can’t say without being called to many names to mention.

I will also tell you that I am scared and you should be to. It’s a proven fact that when a Brown Shirt (my new name for progressives, so make a note for future reference) wins a battle, or even thinks he does, it’s pedal to the metal for every other anti-American, anti-Constitution and anti-Christian lame brained scheme that enters their welted minds. In the days to come we will see their vindictive, hate filled idea’s brought to fruition.

Right now the South is in their crosshairs and their plan is to wipe history clean of any mention of the Confederacy, the Civil War (fought over states rights) the Rebel Flag, those who fought, and even, get ready for this, the destruction of the Jefferson Memorial. Of course they’d have to include the Washington monument as well as he also owned slaved. Any book or game or toy with so much as a Southern accent will be pulled form the shelves, removed from the electronic game choices, and burned on the public square. Very much like the Nazi book burnings.

Today on the web a man went into a local Walmart wanting them to make a cake with the Confederate flag on it. They refused. A few days later he want back and asked for one with an ISIS flag decoration, and they happily complied. I will not be shopping at Wal-Mart any more, even if it means I will spend more on some items.

Still they won’t be satisfied, the push has already begun for polygamy to become legal. What’s next, father and daughter, mother and son, brother and sister? No, don’t say it won’t happen, you said that about gay marriage. What they really want is no marriage at all. Everyone goes with whoever, whenever they like.

At the same time the Church now has one of Palin’s bulls eyes on it. Maybe we should make a big stink about how they are making gun references toward Christians. Of course it would go nowheres because they’d be happy to see all Christians six feet under.

So why do they hate Christians? Have Christians burned the beds homosexuals were having sex in? Did we force them, like their doing in Iran at the moment, to have a sex change to accommodate the sex they say they are. Two women one says she’s the wife one says she’s the husband. The one that says she’s a husband goes under the knife and becomes a husband. And vice-a-versa. We didn’t do that. Did we throw them off tall buildings? Stone them? Nope, we just made them aware of their sin. Sort of like when you lied and your mom knows it and you’re trying to avoid the uncomfortableness of the moment by saying everyone does it. They won’t admit what their doing is wrong but they know, because God tells them it’s wrong. Why do you think so many commit suicide?

Read the comments on the blogs. The language is so bad it would have to look up to see the gutter. I really believe the only word they know starts with an F. Or maybe that’s because sex is really what homosexual life is all about. It’s what makes them homosexual. If not, why must they insist on telling everyone their gay? Do we care? Not really, yet they feel driven to tell everyone. It’s as if they want us to approve of it. Why do they need our approval? If it’s a natural God given life style they don’t need our approval any more than we need theirs. It would be as natural as rain in the summer.

If you are a Christian, I include myself in this, gird your loins as Monty Python is want to say because we are the targets now. Every word we speak, every lifted eyebrow when homosexual behavior is mentioned will be noted and written down. If our Christians colleges refuse to allow homosexual teachers, or homosexual married partners to live in the dorms the schools will be punished to the point of losing their accredidation and I will say here that both my son and daughter-in-law teach in a Christian college. Taylor University in Upland Indiana.

Read the scriptures and begin memorizing them, like we did in Sunday school. Having those verses in my head helped me through many a life and death situation. Know with certainty what your talking about concerning the Bible. Be prepared for your church to lose its tax exemptions. We are in a war with evil and we have to see it that way. Not to, has gotten us to where we are today. We all sat back and let this happen. We are responsible. Be prepare for any occurrence. They want us gone and will take no prisoners. And don’t be surprised if they try to ban the Bible as hate speech.

The time is coming and I’m talking months here not years when Christians will lose their jobs, their homes, their incomes, and perhaps their children simply for holding on to their faith. It’s already begin and so, you need to prepare yourselves. The government will not be on your side. You might, as in Canada be fined, and jailed simply for speaking out.

Kristallnacht is coming.  Churches will be vandalized and some perhaps burned. I know what you’re saying. I’ve gone off the deep end. I’ve gone down the rabbit hole, I Alice looking through her looking glass. But am I? Don’t you also have just that little sense of fear that it’s all coming apart and our leaders will let it for their own preservation?

And remember, just because the Court, (no longer supreme) says it’s so, doesn’t make it the be all and end all of the question. Flood congress with e-mails, letters, faxes, personal visits. Everyday, every single day to tell them we won’t put up being targeted. We are in the majority. We are on the right side of the issue. We are far stronger than the left if we’re willing to be. Make this your life work.

We must not allow them to simply destroy everything they touch. A few of our representatives are speaking out, are trying to stop this. We must find these leaders, like Cruz, and Jindal and yes, even Huckabee, and the Reverend Graham. We must speak up as well regardless. We have to or we will lose the country and our children will never know the freedoms they could have had. They need to be supported. By prayer and financially.

As I’ve stated before we are the majority and we need to start acting like it. The time for sitting on the sidelines is over. “In order for evil to flourish, all that’s required is for good men to do nothing.” Edward Burke

The Jews did nothing and were led to the slaughter. Everyone said it would never happen. They were wrong.

Ted Cruz means well and calls for a Constitutional amendment to reel in the Supremes, but that will take years and we don’t have that much time and if you’re following my report on what the process for an amendment is, you know that’s not the answer. The answer is to fight back. To let them know we won’t go softly into that good night. With God on our side we will be victorious but remember of all the Christians in the world that have suffered and died, we have not been among them. Perhaps this is our time. Maybe this is what will finally motivate people to get involved. I certainly hope so. For our Countries sake and our children’

The diagram below is called the Tyler Cycle. It shows the repeating cycles of history. I believe we are entering the bondage stage. Now faced with this very difficult stage the people inevitably turn to faith and religion, through this they achieve the courage needed to fight for and win their freedom. Then through the benefits of freedom, they achieve an abundance in material things and so it goes. This cycles has been happening down through the ages. It’s clearly happening now.

It is not wrong to pray against those who has purposefully wronged you or wronged someone you love. It is biblical to pray that God would reward them with just punishment. Often this means that their sin is exposed or that the evil they’ve done is returned on their own head. David prayed many such prayers against his enemies. (see Psalms 35 and 109)

America Is No Longer A Nation of Laws

Today the flame of justice went out on the statue of liberty. What once burned brightly burns no more. America, the country of laws is nothing more than a fading memory. According to several reports, Chief Justice Roberts, smiled and laughed at Scalia’s scathing  and accurate take down of Roberts’ contempt for the rule of law.  Obviously he doesn’t take seriously a decision we find appalling and tragic.

It’s simply a mind boggling reaction. It also makes clear that he’s not really paying attention to the arguments presented to him. and lest you forgot, he asked not a single question while the case was being heard. This represents a massive shift in power away from the executive branch and to the judiciary. Whereas in Chevorn, which the Supreme Court has not overturned, recognized that Congress and the executive branch agencies established by Congress get first crack at interpreting ambiguous laws, King now pushes the executive branch aside and arrogates that authority for itself.

For the moment, that appropriation is limited to Obamacare subsidies. But it would be foolish indeed to expect the jurisdiction-greedy lower courts not to seize on this fresh excuse to ignore federal agencies when they want to.

Folks, I’m not a lawyer and legal terms and phrases are not my expertise but I can say this after reading all I can find on the matter, that the consequences of today’s ruling are far broader than Obamacare. In stark contrast to what Roberts claims he was doing, i.e., limiting the court’s role and authority, his opinion essentially lifts the bounds of language from the court’s rulings. The court is now free to ignore the plain meaning of words, find ambiguity where there is none, divine the “intent” of Congress and re-write the law. This my friends is truly frightening. It also leaves me fearful that Roberts will do the same with the pending Gay Marriage case.

This is why we need Cruz as our next President and Jindal as VP.

Isn’t it ironic that the very Republicans who are throwing their hands up in frustration concerning the courts decision are the same ones that couldn’t wait to get Kagan and Sotomayor onto the bench. I give you that worm, Lindsey Graham. He said when endorsing Kagan that she was smart and funny and that Obama chose wisely. Well, he’s right about that. When supporting Sotomayor, he simply said elections have consequences and Obama deserved his picks. And this guy wants to be President? I might add here that Rand Paul believes the same. The Pres. should have whoever he choses. Really?

I mentioned in an earlier blog that Rubio provided the final vote for the trade bill. Here’s a billboard I saw I wanted to share.

Does it seem to you that we are at a point of no return in this country? It is certainly beginning to feel that way to me. And if we are, why are so few people concerned? Why do so few even realize what’s happening? When I’m out and about I want to grab people by the throat and shout in their faces to wake up! For Gods sake, Wake Up!

We’re losing our freedom and our rights and people are busy fighting about the civil war and the confederate flag. Fifty thousand people came out to denounce gay marriage in Italy. Why aren’t we doing the same? Have we become so afraid of being called a bad name that we hid behind closed doors and drawn drapes?

Remember when people would say “sticks and stones will break my bones but names can never hurt me.”? Why have we allowed them to get the upper hand? We should be laughing in their faces not hiding in fear. We should be driving them out of the public square. Why aren’t we? The homosexual population is less than 2% of the general population yet they wield enormous power. Power we gave them.

Even the Pope has gone over to the dark side. Since when did the Pope become a mouthpiece for the Environmentalist? Shouldn’t he be telling people to embrace Christ and not “Sister Earth.” That to me sounds an awful lot like something the druids would believe in, not the Pope. The Pope’s message is that he endorses a political solution to climate change that could only be accomplished by remaking the world order and empowering the transnational authority such as the U.N to impose this New World Order on reluctant sovereign nations such as America. Where did that come from and what does that have to do with saving souls?

It’s bad enough to have to deal with all the political lies and treasonous acts our elected officials throw at us on a daily basis, but to have the Pope join in can only make one wonder if we aren’t in fact living in the last days? I have to say in the interest of honesty that I am not a Catholic, but I figure if he can push his idea’s on those of us who aren’t Catholic, those of us who aren’t,  have the right to do the same. It’s called push back. Like we should be doing on many fronts.

Part 2– What About A Constitutional Convention

Quickly, before we get started. For you Rubio voters. Did you know he was the deciding vote on the trade bill voted on this week. And did you know that he and his staff refuse to say whether they read it or not. Those that did their just duties include, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Jeff Sessions, James Lankford, Mike Lee. That’s what, five out of 100. Gosh, Everyone else took the word of McConnell and the Washington Big Business lobbyist. Remember than when you go to vote for the next President. Rubio was part of the Gang of Eight that would force amnesty for immigrants down our throats, and he also voted for, without reading the bill, a trade agreement that will kill American jobs and destroy our Sovereignty.

So now, lets get started. Yesterday we left off with the fact that there is no provision in Article V. empowering state legislators to choose delegates to a CC or to limit the scope of a CC. Some of the resolutions we’ve seen are calling for a CC. Constitutional Convention) however I concluded with that fact that many legislators insist that they are not applying for a CC but an Article V. Amendment Convention.

Continuing from yesterday—

“. . . also corrects common myths about the procedure…the foremost of which is that the Convention authorized by Article V. is a CC. p. 6

“Another acceptable name for a convention for proposing amendments are amendments convention of the states, (For reasons explained in section ll it’s inaccurate and misleading to call a convention for proposing amendments a “constitutional convention”)p7

Natelson states that the amendment convention is not an assembly with. . .

“…wide authority, such as one charged with drafting or adopting a constitution. Thus, it is simply incorrect to refer to a convention for proposing amendments as a “Constitutional Convention.” They are different creatures entirely” p4

The source to which his 4th footnote refers is the book Natelson himself wrote! He quotes himself. Maybe Natelson is the only constitutional expert who conjured up this notion.

Fact: There has never been a convention “charged with drafting or adopting a Constitution.” For over 200 years every amendment to the Constitution originated in Congress, then sent to the states for ratification.

Section V. consists of two pages attempting to prove the Myth of a Runaway Convention. None of it holds water because it can’t be proven. In bold letters, he writes;

“the runaway convention scenario was conjured up in the 19th century to dissuade state lawmakers from bypassing Congress through the state application and convention process.” 

Advocates of the runaway scenario…argue that the 1787 Constitutional Convention disregarded its instructions. Unfortunately for their position, the widespread claim that the 1787 Constitutional Convention disregarded its instructions is substantially false.

When we go to the Q & A section, we find this: Q23. Isn’t it true that the 1787 CC was a “runaway” –that Congress convened it under the Articles of Confederation only to propose amendments to the Articles, but it ended up drafting an entirely new Constitution?

A. The truth is quite to the contrary; Most delegates had full authority to recommend a new Constitution.  p.22

Here we find an interesting twist. First, the question is true. It was a runaway convention. The answer is an outright lie. And once again he refers to his own book as proof.

The advocates are offering false assurances that a convention can be limited to a single subject and that it will not, CAN NOT become a runaway convention. The truth is, they have no way of enforcing such a claim. There is no historical evidence to prove it because since the drafting and ratification of the Constitution there has never, ever been a CC called. All 27 amendments have been proposed by Congress and ratified by the states. Why? Because the dangers of a repeat of the 1787 Conference of States are too well known.

The CC as well as the respective states of the attending delegates to that conference, gave strict instructions that they were only to “amend the Articles of Confederation.”

In a 40 x 40 room, fifty-five men debated in secret (locked doors and windows nailed shut sounds like todays Congress) from May thru Sept. the muggiest months of the year in sweltering Phila. When all the delegates were present the commenced to form a committee of the whole, took a vote, and it was done. Washington rapped his gavel, pronounced the Articles of Confederation “hereby resolved” (or words to that effect) and the free-for-all began.

And it could happen again just like that! The irony here is the Ron Natelson, the author of the Handbook, who’s convinced hundreds of state legislators that there is no risk, that they can control the convention, choose the delegates and fix the economy by calling for a CC is the same Ron Natelson that’s admitted in writing that:

“Of course, abuses of the Article V amendment processes are possible.”

Part 3 tomorrow.

There’s More Than a Flag To Get Ride of In This Country!

So they want to bane the Confederate flag. My, my. Is there nothing these folks won’t make an issue out of. First, this isn’t really about the flag. It’s about destroying the history of the South. You know, where they’ve been voting Republican for some time now. Okay, we don’t like the flag which if memory serves started out as the flag of the Northern Virginia regiments. Could be wrong there but I’m to lazy to look it up and besides I’m not really interested in the flag at this point. I’m interested in once the flag has been disgraced out of our history.

So then what? Well, should we bane the American flag. Look at any picture of the KKK and they full to over flowing with American flags. Their already talking about getting rid of those pesky war memorials in practically every southern city. The we need to think about all those cemeteries. You know, like the one at Appomattox’s Courthouse in Virginia, and the eleven other sites, then we have Alabama, Mississippi, and the list goes on. Are we to just bulldoze those down like Hitler did in France, at the WWI Armistice site, hoping to erase any memory of the German defeat? No, we’re better than that aren’t we? Of course we could do as ISIS is doing in Syria and bulldoze or bomb out of existence any historical site that doesn’t fit the narrative?

Washington owned slaves. Should we change the name of Washington D.C. Tear down him statues and memories. How about T. Jefferson? Let’s tear down the Jefferson monument. That will fix him!

The civil war wasn’t about slavery till Lincoln made it so. It was in the beginning about States Rights. You know, like if you want to keep the flag your state has every right to do so.  The South felt they were simply trying to hold on to what they had. Yes, I know, slavery was a terrible, horrible, thing. But it was part of our history and part of what America was. Are all those men who fought for what they at the time thought was right, be scrubbed from our history to please a bunch of liberals?

Did you know that the first slave owner was a black man? Prior to 1655 there were no legal slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit they could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of land. This included any Black purchased from slave traders. Blacks were also granted 50 acres upon their release.

Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought the the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed by Indians who attacked the farm. He married a black women servant while working on the farm.

When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Black” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. When it came time to release john Casor, an indentured servant he reneged and extended Johns time. Caesar left and became employed by a free white man Robert Parker.

Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 55, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner.

By 1699, the number of free blacks prompted fears of a “Black insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Those who didn’t  want to go so sold themselves to white masters so they wouldn’t have to go. The modern nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia both originated as colonies of repatriated former black slaves.

However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the U.S. By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.

Sources: John Casor/Anthony Johnson

So there you have it, though I forgot one person we should completely erase from the history books.  Senator Robert Byrd, whose real name was Cornellus Calvin Sale, Jr.born  in North Wtilkesboro, N.C. Eventually he became the Exalted Cyclops of the West Virginia Klan. “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side. . .Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded y race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” Robert Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS) 1946

And of course we have Lyndon Bains Johnson but we won’t go there!

What About a Constitutional Convention?

We’ve all heard that there is a move afoot to convene a Constitutional Convention. Mark Levin has talked about it on his show and several states have signed on. Over the last six months I’ve read column after column on the subject, but recently stumbles onto something I have to share.  It’s something we had all better think long and hard about or we may find ourselves, far worse off than we are now. The information will take some time to get out so I will break it up into parts as I’ve done on previous occasions. Please, read the thing in it’s entirety then think about it long and hard. Feed back would be appreciated as I’d like to know how you folks feel about this.

So, here we go with Part One–A gridlock of Fact and Fiction

A constitutional Convention (CC) is just that, regardless the various softened names it has recenty been given. The call for a CC is on the march through this country; it is armed and it is dangerous.

It’s Armed: Fabrications, confusing language, legal “terms of art”, and outright lies by advocates manipulating the current Fast-paced movement by legislators.

It’s Dangerous: In today’s economic climate states are broke, legislators are frantic, panicking and grasping at straws. They’ve been lulled and seduced into believing every deceitful lie they’ve been told, and are now rushing to get the resolutions passed so theY can “fix” the problem.

Their solution? An “Article V Amendment Convention or CC to add a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. . . or is it their solution?

Legislators know and admit that most officials in all branches of government pay no attention to the Constitution. In fact, today we could say that the Gov. and Congress have trampled the constitution into the ground by ignoring the Bill of Rights at every turn.

How, then, can any state legislator convince themselves that a balanced budget amendment would be treated any differently?

The “fix” is being promulgated – again – by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) a non-partisan membership organization boasting a membership of over 2,000 conservative state legislators. To set the fix, a 43 page handbook, titled: “Proposing Constitutional Amendments by a Convention of the States” was provided to their mostly-republican members, along with model legislation to carry back to their states. http://www.alec.org/docs/ArticleVHandbook.pdf

Reading the Handbook is like watching mainstream news; disinformation, spin and lies at every turn. However it gives us an understanding as to how the legislators are being harangued, goaded and shamed into taking this action. From the Handbook (emphasis on this and the following quotes are mine)

despite recurrent hopeful talk about how Congress might adopt a BBA [Balanced budget amendment] or other corrective amendments on its own, history suggests reformers cannot depend on that. The states must do the jub, as our founders expected them to do.” p. 7

“…thus far the states have never exercised their corresponding power to correct federal abuses. As a result, the constitutional design has become unbalanced.” p.7

“Move Fast. America is in serious trouble; don’t be sidetracked by alarmism or by hope that Congress may propose an amendment limiting its own power. History shows this is unlikely.” p. 21

“If we could address one or more of the leading Founders today, we might tell them what has happened to American federalism–that the states are increasingly mere administrative subdivisions for the convenience of Washington, D.C. After we related the situation, those founders doubtless would ask, ‘Well, have you ever called a convention of the states under Article V?”

State legislators believe that they will have complete control over the process, electing delegates and managing the Convention. Here’s why they believe it:

Ron Natelson [author of the Handbook] encourages legislators to promote the right amendments, use the right amount of specificity, and keep the process within the states’ control.” p iv

“The convention is a deliberative body whose members answer to the state legislatures they represent.” p.9

“Retain state control over the convention.” (my emphasis) State legislators applying for a convention must send a clear message to Congress that this procedure is within the control of the states. Congress’ obligations are to count the applications, call the convention on the states’ behalf, and choose a mode of ratification. Those are the prerogatives of the state legislatures and of the convention delegates responsible to the state legislatures.”

FACT– There is no provision in Article V. empowering state legislators to choose the delegates to a CC or to “limit” the scope of a CC. There are no rules, no regulations nor instructions. Some of the resolutions are calling for a CC. However, many legislators who’ve taken the bait, insist that they are “not applying for a constitutional convention; it’s an Article V Amendment Convention.”

Part 2–tomorrow
