Romney Destroys Obama in June Fundraising


In the months leading up the actual start of this year's presidential campaign, President Obama's re-election team would often boast that they were going to out raise any opposing Republican with well over $1 billion by the final weeks of the election... Ugh, about that....

June 2012 Presidential fundraising numbers:


Romney - $106 million
Obama - $71 million

This is the second consecutive month Mr. Romney has out-fund raised the incumbent, and at this pace he will likely be closer to the mythical $1 billion mark by November 6th, especially as donations come in by the train load in the final weeks, which is when Obama raised his record breaking $150.7 last time around.

Now, I'm sure Obama's poor haul will be used to clobber Romney on the perils of unlimited fundraising, and a call for the Supreme Court's Citizens United to be overturned, but let us remember he and his allies were the ones actively giddy over the prospect of $1 billion in their reserves - without one care for the influence of that much money in American politics.

Ernest Borgnine Dead at 95

Sad news. From CNN:
Film and television actor Ernest Borgnine, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of a lovelorn butcher in 1955's "Marty," has died at age 95, his manager said Sunday.

The thick-set, gap-toothed Borgnine built a reputation for playing heavies in early films like "From Here to Eternity" and "Bad Day at Black Rock." But he turned that reputation on its head as the shy, homely title character in "Marty," taking home the Oscar for best actor -- one of four awards the film claimed.

His manager, Lynda Bensky, said Borgnine died of kidney failure Sunday afternoon. His wife, Tova, and children were at his side at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, she said.

"It's a very sad day," Bensky said. "The industry has lost someone great, the caliber of which we will never see again. A true icon. But more importantly, the world has lost a sage and loving man who taught us all how to 'grow young.' His infectious smile and chuckle made the world a happier place."

Sunday Bible Story:

Why  Jesus  Spoke  in  Parables

Luke 15:3    And  he  spoke  this  parable  unto  them  saying:


If you have ever wondered why Jesus spoke to the people in
parables, and did not just come out clearly and articulate his
precise thoughts and words, the only answer to that is this:

He spoke in parables to the people because some of them were
not permitted to receive the message.

And if you look closely at your own experience, this is what you
find:  when you read the Bible, if you understand it, it is because
you believe it and want to understand it.  If you do not believe it,
it is because you do not want to believe it.

I am not saying that any man or woman on earth ever understands
everything in the Bible.  That would be preposterous.  God wrote
it.  Hello, we are human.

What I am saying is that for most of the simple truths revealed to
man, our understanding of it is because we believe.

The only real basis for the speaking in parables is revealed in
Matthew chaper 13, beginning at verse 10:

and his disciples came and said unto him, why do you speak unto
them in parables?  He answered and said unto them, Because, it
is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,
but unto them, it is not given.    For whomsoever has, to him shall
be given, and he shall have more abundance;  but whosoever has
not -- from him shall be taken away even that which he has.

So what Jesus is saying here is that if you believe the truth, if you
receive the light you have been given, you will receive more.  But,
if you do not believe the truth, if you do not receive the light, then
the little bit you do have -- that little bit will be taken from you.

He goes on to say,  therefore I speak unto them in parables:  because
they seeing,  see not;  and hearing, they hear not, neither do they
understand.    And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah who
said:    By hearing you shall hear and not understand,   and seeing
you shall see and shall not perceive;    for this people's heart has
grown fat, their ears are dull of hearing,   and their eyes they have
closed;      lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and
hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart,  and
should be converted and I should heal them.

But, blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they
hear.   For truly I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous
men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not
seen them;  and to hear those things which you hear, and have not
heard them. 

So, in the final analysis, the question is not:  do I understand the
Bible;  the real question is:  do I want to understand and believe?

Not having a heart desire to understand the truth of a parable, or
the truth of the Bible is simply an indication that it has not been
given to you to know the parable, or the truth.

If that is the case, your only intelligent next step is to seek God,
and ask him to reveal the truth to you.  It is his truth, after all.

If you truly want to understand the truth of God, you have to
believe first.  Man cannot understand and then believe.  Belief
comes first, then understanding.

Al-Qaeda Terrorist Caught at Olympics

From the Telegraph:
A suspected terrorist who MI5 believe is a would-be suicide bomber was found repeatedly near the Olympic Games venue.

The alleged al-Qaeda militant was caught crossing through the Olympic Park five times, breaking a ban imposed by the Home Secretary, The Sunday Telegraph has learned.

The 24 year-old has previously tried to get to Afghanistan, allegedly for terrorist training, and is suspected of fighting for the Somali Islamist group al Shabaab, which has been responsible for thousands of deaths, including those of Western aid workers. He is accused of trying to recruit other Britons to its cause.

A Home Office lawyer warned after his discovery in the Olympic area that the man - known as CF - wanted to “re-engage in terrorism-related activities, either in the UK or Somalia” and is “determined to continue to adhere to his Islamist extremist agenda”.
His detention is the most serious security alert yet to hit the Olympic Park.

It is disclosed today after a week which saw 14 terror-related arrests across Britain, including a white Muslim convert detained over an alleged plan to carry out a major terrorist attack.

Russia: America's Favorite Video Game Enemy


Okay, I just don't understand it.

For four fucking decades we were embattled in a "cold war" with the Soviet Union, which saw us fighting them through dozens of proxy wars (Korea, Afghanistan, and Grenada to name a few), yet during that time we never fired one shot directly at each other - preventing World War 3 and potentially the first war fought with non-conventional weaponry.

So please tell me why every fucking war game created today has the United States, Great Britain or some western nation fighting against, you guessed it, Russia... Sometimes a nationalist faction attempting to regain their lost Soviet glory, other times the Kremlin for nonsensical reasons, and every time a nuclear weapon is involved.

While playing Ghost Recon: Future Soldier I forgot whether I was playing a Tom Clancy video game, or Modern Warfare 3 during one cut-scene... because they were EXACTLY ALIKE, except for the fact in GRFS the nuclear attack was in London, while MW3 was Paris... Oh, wow, what a big difference. And a sidenote, both featured idiotic tourists video-taping the freaking attack!!! UGH!

What the fuck is with our Russia obsession as a culture?

Our administrations still make nuclear deals with them as if there's still a cold war ongoing; our presidential candidates must still outline policies for dealing with them as if we're one international crisis away from war; our television shows have to, possibly by legal contract, have one episode with an undercover KGB agent, and finally, our video games must have 15,000 fucking Russian bastards for us to obliterate, or we are not happy.

The only video game franchise not obsessed with the impotent Russians is Medal of Honor... So I have very high hopes for their new game scheduled for release this fall. But if it has one fucking Russian enemy in it, I will lose my mind and likely sue the sonsofabitches for copyright infringement of every other game released.

How Chicago Plays Ball

In Chicago they play “Chicago Ball.”  This is a form of soft ball that is as location specific to the Chicago area as Hoover Ball is to West Branch, Iowa.  In this game a sixteen inch softball that is as hard as a baseball is used with no gloves.  If at least one or two fingers aren’t broke in each game it must have been in girl’s division.  It is a rough sport, and everyone who plays it knows it.  Catching a line drive is like catching a cannonball in the stomach and catching a high pop-up is like having an incoming meteorite land in your hands.

In Chicago they also play another kind of ball that is rough, and everyone knows the rules.  They call it politics.  In other places they call it organized crime.

Back in the Dream Time, elders were honored because of their accumulated knowledge.  If Pops knew a better way to saddle horses, that knowledge helped Junior since he saddled horses.  Today if Pops knows how to tune-up cars what good is that when cars don’t need to be tuned-up anymore?  Now the old are relegated to extolling their own relevance while exclaiming, “I’ve never seen that before.”  Doddering ancients who use their cell phones merely to talk wonder why their grandchildren never answer their emails as Gen Z tweet each other: “Don’t trust anyone over fifteen.”  The world is moving so fast not only is today tomorrow’s yesterday the generations are living in different todays today.  Gen X and Y parents with their once hip lap-tops under their arms stare in wonder as their pre-teen Gen Zs text with one hand while Wii skydiving in the backseat.  For these new additions to middle-age who’re just old enough to remember Star Trek imagine Captain Kirk visiting Captain Picard pointing at Commander Data and saying, “What’s that?”

After years of being treated as if the Wisdom of the Ages were as relevant as Confucius in a fortune cookie, now that we have Chicago on the Potomac the wisdom gained in the City that Works is suddenly spot-on.  Of course George the Second’s doctrine of pre-emptive war made one old saying make sense beyond the Southside, “Never start fights, but if you have to hit someone back first once in a while that’s all right.”   Then again ACORN has shown the everlasting relevance of Chicago’s best known adage, “Vote early and vote often” as well as eternal life or ACORN by another name is still the same corrupt mob of community organizers organizing their way to personal power and prosperity.

With President Obama and the Chi-Town hustlers large-and-in-charge, Windy City Proverbs may help many believe what kind of change we’ve stepped in.  Such as “Everybody cheats so if you don’t cheat you’re a cheater,” or “What’s mine is mine, what’s yours is negotiable.”  Maybe the taxman could use, “They must not have wanted it they didn’t have their hand on it.”  Looking at our Congress, “If you’re going to get mad at thieves you’ll never have any friends” comes to mind.  Thinking of the new Green Home Efficiency Inspectors they want us to deal with when buying or selling a home is reminiscent of the Chicago Fire Marshal conscientiously telling a young business owner, “We’ll save the city some gas money if we just do the inspection right here in my office,” while patting his desk indicating where to place the money.  

The Obama Administration started off with some Southside swag calling the biggest earmark in history a stimulus bill aimed at shovel ready jobs.  Then again as the President later joked, "Shovel-ready was not as ... uh .. shovel-ready as we expected." After this predictable Southside of Chicago opening act the poster child for a different kind of politics continued the virtuoso performance calling ward-heelers czars and followed a time-honored Second City tradition in the Minnesota recount by finding a bag of votes giving us a good laugh by installing Al Franken in the once revered United States Senate. 

Who says you can’t go home again?  They may turn the old neighborhood into Yuppie Heaven by knocking down the middleclass housing and putting up three-story imitation Victorians but right here right now the machine that gave no-show jobs to half the wise-guys on the corner as well as Michelle at the hospital is in the process of not just fixing tickets but fixing everything else.  The political descendants of Big Bill Thompson, Richard the First and Richard the Second parlayed community organizing into a national organization that should make the Five Families green with envy.

Having fixed the economy and with health care, hate-crimes, immigration, and cap-and-trade all queued up to flow through the system before the voters get a chance to register their disapproval, Don Barak also had the opportunity to begin fixing the highest court in the land.  In the Chicago justice system ( an oxymoron) lawyers give out printed pricelists stating how much acquittals cost verses dismissals and the old saying concerning courthouses goes, “It may say justice on the outside but that doesn’t mean there’s any on the inside.” Since the Democratic Machine and their Me-To Republican allies rubber-stamped Mr. Obama’s first pick for the A-Team, how do the prospects for judicial restraint and the Constitution look?   Fine if you fit the profile for the protected or promoted classes, but not too good if you naively look for that lady wearing the blindfold and holding the scales. 
Joining the sisterhood on the bench, Ms. Sotomayor felt her gender and her race made her uniquely qualified to reach wise decisions and believes international law should be consulted when weighing appeals. She should feel right at home with the former chief counsel for the ACLU who apparently believes American Citizenship is the right of all mankind.   In one decision she said, “You would have a huge statelessness problem if you don't consider a child born abroad a U.S. citizen.”   And now they have turned Chief Justice Roberts to the Dark Side. Ah justice, what is it good for?  Or as they say in Chi-town, “How much justice can you afford?”  The difference between Chicago Prime and Chicago on the Potomac is in the original version mayors serve for life followed by a power struggle.  Vive la Différence!

How does Chicago Ball fit into all these old sayings?  There are multiple sayings associated with playing ball.  Such as, You have to swing the bat to have a chance to hit the ball,” or “I ain’t cheating if they don’t catch me.”  So how do our now nationalized Chicago Pols play ball.  One recent example is in the financing problem faced by the owner of the Chicago Cubs.  The plans to renovate the dilapidated Wrigley Field were being held up because of the current owner’s political associations. And that’s how they play political ball in Chicago.

And how does that translate to Chicago-on-the-Potomac?  In 2009 the Obama Administration played Chicago Ball with the Drug Industry to get their support for Obamacare.  These types of tactics have become standard operating procedure for the Obama Administration as department after department make their wishes known and their power felt.

And just recently the President strong armed the Supreme Court asserting any interference with his take-over of 1/6th of the economy would be unprecedented.  What was unprecedented was his use of manipulation and brow beating to pressure a supposedly independent court to become another place where the fix is in, or as they say in Chicago Ball “When they send out their best hitter, aim for the head.”

And if this article makes you feel politically as if you’ve had your fingers broken, well that’s just the way they play ball in Chicago.

We hold these truths to be self evident, that
all men are created equal, that they are en-
dowed by their Creator with certain un-
alienable Rights, that among these Life,
Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments
are instituted among Men, deriving their
just powers from the consent of the governed. 


That whenever any Form of Gov-
ernment becomes destructive of
these ends, it is the right of the
people to alter or abolish it and
to institute new Government,
laying its foundation on such
principles and organizing its powers
in such form, as to them may seem
most likely to effect their safety and

Prudence indeed will dictate that governments long established should
not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. 

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations
pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a
design to reduce them under aboslute

it is their right, it is their duty, to
throw off such Government and to

Well friends, I guess we had real men who stood for something back then.

And now, we have lifelong crooks who pass themselves off as politicians,
stealing, lying, cheating, and picking up a nice check all the while.

And we sit back waiting for something to happen, waiting for Congress
or the Senate, or the Supreme Court or the White House to change.

The only change from these incompetents is going to be worse for us,

Perhaps it is time to read and study the Declaration of Independence, and
then put it into practice, while we still are independent.

LIFE IN THE ASYLUM


WHAT HAS JOHN ROBERTS DONE TO US?

What hath John Roberts wrought? On the lighter side, he now has both the purveyors of Obamacare and Romney’s staff saying the mandate is not a tax, while Roberts himself says it is and uses it to rescue this horrible bill. In the meantime, Roberts wisecracks about what he has handed to the American people. And what exactly is that?

First, though, who exactly is he? He is a résumé reader’s dream: growing up well-to-do, attending fine prep schools, handsome and athletic; then the piece de resistance: both Harvard College and Harvard Law [managing editor, Harvard Law Review]! Both with honors!! He left Harvard Yard and, traveling to D.C., stopped for one year to clerk for a federal judge in Manhattan. After that he completed his journey.

In other words, having grown up in Indiana, he left flyover country at age 18, passed through places that have given us some truly awful people, and soon landed permanently in the Mammon that we call D.C.

Roberts worked in the Reagan administration. Is he a Ronald Reagan? Apparently not. He was nominated by George W. Bush. Is he a W ? Perhaps in the “compassionate conservative” sense. Does he have actual constitutional credentials? He seems to: he has written some good opinions in the past, and he served in a significant position in the D.C. chapter of the Federalist Society. So what happened?

Reading his Opinion is somewhat helpful. The entire Opinion runs a svelte 193 pages. Roberts’ contribution starts at the bottom of 7 pages of Syllabus, and runs 59 pages. The Honorable Ginsburg’s concurrence/dissent runs on for 61 pages. The four dissenters jointly wrote 65 pages, and Justice Thomas also wrote a separate 2-page concurrence with the dissenters.

Roberts starts out as though he is back at the Federalist Society. Early and often his opinion runneth over with acknowledgements of the federal government’s “limited” power, that its powers are only those “enumerated,” the importance and clarity of the Tenth Amendment, and the wisdom and virtue of the “framers of the Constitution.” Well into the opinion one can be excused for thinking that he is on the right track.

Dismissing the argument that the individual mandate creates a “tax” (clearly it creates a “penalty”), he sneers at the suggestion that Congress can use its commerce power “to compel citizens to act as the Government would have them act. That is not the country the Framers of our Constitution envisioned,” he explains. Hearts are thumping at this point.

Then he begins to turn the Titanic toward the iceberg. He finds it “necessary” to revisit the tax or penalty question. If he can figure out how the “penalty” can be just enough of a “tax” to rescue Obamacare, we can all take comfort that we will still be “the country the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.” He begins speaking patronizingly of the “joint dissenters.” They just don’t understand.

So what did happen? Charles Krauthammer thinks Roberts may have become more concerned about the Supreme Court’s institutional legitimacy than about upholding the Constitution. Perhaps. Michael Savage thinks it might be his medication. Perhaps. Knowledgeable D.C. insiders talk of Roberts being way too concerned about what the Washington Post and the New York Times write about him: the seemingly inescapable D.C. disease known as “what will my legacy be?”

Some suggest that Roberts deserves kudos for putting a serious limit on the endless stretching of  commerce clause power. He was trying to help the Constitutionalists among us. If so, thanks for nothing. Even if that was his thought, he has actually handed a power-grabbing, overreaching,  “progressive” Pelosi-Reid-RINO Congress a Users’ Manual for limitless power-grabbing: simply add a tax, or just a penalty, to every future power grab. No need to even fool around with the commerce clause anymore.

For all the awfulness Roberts’ opinion has just given us, he has given us one sentence that must ring in our ears forevermore: “It is not our [the Court’s] job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” Think about that. Especially on the Fourth of July.

We may all have to turn off our TVs and start paying attention, start taking a more direct role in elective politics, and start earlier in the game. We can not continue ignoring primaries and waiting for the establishment parties to hand us two bad choices. We can not keep electing reach-across-the-aisle Senators who will vote to confirm Elena Kagan because she has a great sense of humor. And we can not count on even the most conservatively credentialed Supreme Court Justice to save us if we have not been doing our job.

Andy Griffith Dead at 86

From Yahoo! TV:
Beloved TV icon Andy Griffith died at his Manteo, North Carolina, home on Tuesday morning. He was 86.

Former UNC President Bill Friday confirmed the passing of his close friend to WITN News.

Griffith became a household name for his portrayal of a small-town sheriff on "The Andy Griffith Show," which aired from 1960-1968. His character, Andy Taylor, was a widower in the fictional town of Mayberry, N.C., which was thought to be modeled after Griffith's hometown of Mt. Airy, N.C. His character encountered daily drama from his sidekick deputy Barney Fife (Don Knotts) as well as his young son Opie (Ron Howard).

The actor went on to star on another long-running TV series: "Matlock." He played Ben Matlock, a no frills criminal defense lawyer who used his smarts to get people to confess in dramatic courtroom scenes. The show aired from 1986 to 1995.

Random Thoughts Whilst the Power Was Out


From the plywood windowed White House:  "A stable and prosperous
Kenya is central to American foreign policy;  crucial to America's
national security and economic interests..."   Hahahahahah  --- yeah,
right ---  translation?  "I got to give them enough taxpayer money so
they won't release my birth certificate and records."  --Barry Soetoro


And secondly --who the frankenstein gives two buckets of warm spit
whether anderson cooper is gay?  As if we didn't know that, and maybe
with that as his lifestyle, he can now run for president.  Is he a member
of Man's Country in Chicago?  Oh, wait, they want men.


So little Barry wants to follow in daddy Castro's footsteps and lead us
into Marxxxism?  He better hurry, he's only got six months left.  And,
he may have a problem getting our guns.  Us gun and religion clingers
will give up all of our ammuntion before we give up our guns.


And of course the cowards in Congress are too busy with their vacations
to prosecute the Attorney Nitwit holder.  Wow -- that's a surprise.  How
about he trades places with John Roberts?


And since Sheriff Jose is revisiting the fraudulent Selective Service
records of the fraudulent so called pseudo president, how about when
little barry child is joyfully defeated in November, we make him sign
up again, and make him join the Army?  He could get a second chance
to be all he can be -- oh wait, he tried that and proved to be a miserable
failure.  He can't join the Marines, they only want a few GOOD men.


There is talk of a new international prize:  the Ignoble Jackass Prize;
recipients must be a complete degenerate, a total failure in a political
position, must be a pathological liar, never held a real job, and must
have ruined a country's economy all by themselves.  This year, beating
out Assad, Castro, Putin and Iamidiotjad is ---- you guessed it ---
oh, by the way, he must be a total scoundrel with numerous aliases
and numerous stolen social security numbers.  And the winner is - - -

Anderson Cooper: "I'm Gay"

From Yahoo! News:
Anderson Cooper has confirmed what most people in the media world and New York already knew: He is gay.

"The fact is, I'm gay," Cooper wrote in an email to Daily Beast blogger Andrew Sullivan. "Always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."

Sullivan, who is gay and is a longtime friend of Cooper's, had asked the CNN anchor for his reaction to a recent Entertainment Weekly story--"The New Art of Coming Out"--that was, in part, about the importance of gay celebrities coming out of the closet to combat America's bullying epidemic.

"Andrew, as you know, the issue you raise is one that I've thought about for years," Cooper responded. "Even though my job puts me in the public eye, I have tried to maintain some level of privacy in my life. Part of that has been for purely personal reasons. I think most people want some privacy for themselves and the people they are close to."

"God Particle" Discovered

For our readers interested in Science. From the Chicago Sun Times:
Scientists working at the world’s biggest atom smasher plan to announce Wednesday that they have gathered enough evidence to show that the long-sought “God particle” answering fundamental questions about the universe almost certainly does exist.

But after decades of work and billions of dollars spent, researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, say they aren’t quite ready to say they’ve “discovered” the particle.

Instead, experts familiar with the research at CERN’s vast complex on the Swiss-French border say that the massive data they have obtained will essentially show the footprint of the key particle known as the Higgs boson — all but proving it exists — but doesn’t allow them to say it has actually been glimpsed.

It appears to be a fine distinction. Senior CERN scientists say that the two independent teams of physicists who plan to present their work at CERN’s vast complex on the Swiss-French border on July 4 are about as close as you can get to a discovery without actually calling it one.

“I agree that any reasonable outside observer would say, ‘It looks like a discovery,’” British theoretical physicist John Ellis, a professor at King’s College London who has worked at CERN since the 1970s, told The Associated Press. “We’ve discovered something which is consistent with being a Higgs.”

Uh-Oh: Wiretaps Reveal that DOJ Knew about Fast and Furious in Detail (After they Denied it Even Existed)

A smoking gun for the DOJ. Now what about Holder? From RollCall:
In the midst of a fiery floor debate over contempt proceedings for Attorney General Eric Holder, House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) quietly dropped a bombshell letter into the Congressional Record.

The May 24 letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), ranking member on the panel, quotes from and describes in detail a secret wiretap application that has become a point of debate in the GOP’s “Fast and Furious” gun-walking probe.

The wiretap applications are under court seal, and releasing such information to the public would ordinarily be illegal. But Issa appears to be protected by the Speech or Debate Clause in the Constitution, which offers immunity for Congressional speech, especially on a chamber’s floor.

According to the letter, the wiretap applications contained a startling amount of detail about the operation, which would have tipped off anyone who read them closely about what tactics were being used.

Holder and Cummings have both maintained that the wiretap applications did not contain such details and that the applications were reviewed narrowly for probable cause, not for whether any investigatory tactics contained followed Justice Department policy.

The wiretap applications were signed by senior DOJ officials in the department’s criminal division, including Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Blanco and another official who is now deceased.

Why the Congress Must Reign in the Supreme Court

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Please notice that this, the foundational sentence of the American way of life does not say “endowed by the Supreme Court.” 

Ever since the Supreme Court took unto itself the power to void laws passed by the representatives of the people in Marbury V. Madison the black-robed Justices have acted, and Americans have accepted them as if they are the source and the summit of what is and what isn’t allowed in America.  In most cases since the middle of the 20th century, the high court has sided with whatever the central government wanted to do in the way of extending its power and curtailing rights which any person who can read plainly sees protected in the document they are sworn to defend.

However, in Article Three of the Constitution, the one that outlines the judicial branch, after specifically enumerating which types of cases the Supreme Court shall try it says, “In all the other Cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”

We often hear of obscure clauses of the Constitution which have been stretched and strained to sweep more power and authority into the never satisfied maw of the Federal Leviathan such as:

·         The “Necessary and Proper Clause” which is found in Article I, Section 8, Clause 18 states, “To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the [enumerated] Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”  This is also known as the “Elastic Clause” because Congress and Presidents have stretched it to give them powers the Founders never would have dreamed possible outside a tyranny.

·         The “Commerce Clause” found in Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 states, “to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among several States, and with the Indian Tribes.”  This is the go-to clause for the Progressive’s conquest of America.  This is the clause that was used in the 1930s by FDR to implement most of the New Deal.  It was used by LBJ in the 1960s to impose the Great Society.  And it is being used by BHO in the 21st century to shackle us with the social democracy brand of socialism which has devastated Europe and which has been repudiated by our former adversaries in the Cold War. 



      In the Supreme Court decision Wickard v. Filburn in 1942 it was handed down from on   high that wheat farmer growing wheat on his own property for his own use can be         legally regulated under the commerce clause because not selling your wheat and using it           yourself is actually competing with wheat that is sold and is therefore commerce.  This is the same clause the Obama Administration originally used as a defense to say they can fine people for not buying insurance arguing that not buying insurance is commerce.

Yes, these two clauses have been stretched and interpreted beyond any semblance of rationality to restrict and restrain Americans in the enjoyment of the freedom and liberty which should be our birthright, yet the clause which clearly states that Congress has the power to reign in the Court has been ignored.

Forget all the posturing about abortion by all the so-called conservatives in Congress. Has there ever been a concerted, protracted or sustained effort to remove abortion from the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court?  No there hasn’t.  And yet tomorrow, or even today Congress could pass a law stating that abortion is an exception to the court’s jurisdiction and with the signing of this law by the president Roe V. Wade would be null and void, and all state laws affecting abortion would once again be in effect.  And this same procedure could be used for the representatives of the people to take back control of the law and the country from the Court.

The Congress is elected. The Supreme Court is appointed.  Congress can be replaced. The Justices of the Supreme Court serve for life.  They could be impeached and removed; however, none have ever been removed and the likelihood of that happening is remote.  There are checks and balances in the process of passing laws.  The Senate is a check on the House and the House on the Senate.  The President is a check on Congress and Congress is a check on the President.  There is a check designed to restrain the Supreme Court from becoming a black-robed committee of kings: Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2 giving Congress the power to create exceptions to the Court’s jurisdiction.  However, tradition and the desire of professional politicians to demagogue about issues instead of solve them keeps the perpetually re-elected from reigning in these want-a-be demigods.

Thursday June 28, 2012 will live in the memory of all patriotic Americans as a day of infamy along with Pearl Harbor, and 9-11. This is the day the Supreme Court ruled that if the Central government can’t force American citizens to do what they want them to do one way they can do it another.

When the Obama Administration and their co-conspirators, the Progressive Democratic Party in Congress, rammed Obamacare through Congress they argued that the fines imposed under the individual mandate upon anyone who didn’t purchase health insurance wasn’t a tax, but that it was penalty allowable under the Commerce Clause.  According to the Constitution all tax bills must begin in the House.  Obamacare began in the Senate; however, that was all right since the fines weren’t taxes they were penalties.

When the issue got to court and it became clear there wasn’t a majority ready to declare not buying insurance was commerce the Obama Administration argued there was no standing to litigate the individual mandate and the fine it imposed because it is a tax.  Through the looking glass inside the beltway and behind the curtain it’s a penalty when that argument works and it’s a tax when that argument works.

Sophistry is defined as “Reasoning that appears sound but is misleading or fallacious. In Metaphysics, Aristotle defines sophistry as ‘wisdom in appearance only.’”  When we look at that definition from now on it will be hard not to see the face of Chief Justice Roberts who today showed his true colors as the midwife of totalitarianism.  While declaring unconstitutional the very arguments used to pass the law the majority declared the law constitutional based upon the very arguments its opponents used to try and defeat the bill.  Up is down, right is wrong, and the government can do whatever it wants.

During the ratification debate when addressing the Supreme Court one of the leading Anti-Federalists wrote, “There is no power above them to control any of their decisions.  There is no authority that can remove them, and they cannot be controlled by the laws of the legislature.  In short, they are independent of the people, of the legislature, and of every power under heaven.  Men placed in this situation will generally soon feel independent of heaven itself.”

The balance between the central government and the once free citizens it is attempting to turn into dumbed down helpless dependents has been significantly changed.  As predicted by the Anti-Federalists, the courts have been used over and over to expand the power of the central government to the detriment of the States and the citizens.  Today we crossed a threshold; we passed a tipping point and are no longer at the edge of the abyss. We are careening down the cliff into the fearful embrace of totalitarianism.  An over the top Supreme Court has given the green light to an out of control Progressive Administration, and as of today there are no checks and there is no balance.

Those of us who love liberty and are dedicated to limited government must contact our representatives and demand that the Supreme Court be brought under control.  Something must be done to preserve liberty or the United States we have loved will become the one we have dreaded.  An all-powerful central government will continue to grow and bend all things to its will.  We must return to the literal definition of constitutional government or this living document will be the death of freedom and the graveyard of liberty.

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

Complete List of Democrats Voting to Hold Holder in Contempt of Congress

The House of Representatives just voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress for stonewalling the House Oversight Committee's efforts to get to the bottom of what occurred in the horrifically planned and ultimately deadly "fast and furious" program.

While the House Democratic leadership and their allies have attempted to paint this as nothing more then pure petty politics, the roll call from today's vote reveals something interesting... 17 Democrats voted to hold Holder in contempt - destroying the media's partisan narrative, and possibly giving more Democrats wiggle room to also oppose the embattled Attorney General.

Here are the 17 Democrats who voted to hold Holder in contempt:

Jason Altmire:
John Barrow:
Dan Boren:
Leonard Boswell:
Ben Chandler:
Mark Critz:
Joe Donnelly:
Kathy Hochul:
Ron Kind:
Larry Kissell:
Jim Matheson:
Mike McIntyre:
Bill Owens:
Collin Peterson:
Nick Rahall:
Mike Ross:
Tim Walz:
Added plus: Bill Owens and Kathy Hochul are from New York, one of the bluest states (if not the bluest) in the nation.

House Finds Holder in Criminal Contempt

With 17 Democrats to boot. From Fox News:
The GOP-led House voted Thursday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to provide key information pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, making Holder the first sitting Cabinet member to be held in contempt.

The vote was 255-67 with one lawmaker voting not present. Seventeen Democrats broke ranks to vote in favor of contempt, while two Republicans voted against the measure.

The vote was preceded by a heated floor debate.

“It’s important to remember how we got here,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said during a speech ahead of the vote. “The Justice Department has not provided the facts and information we requested. … It’s our constitutional duty to find out.”

The GOP-led House took the step over the alleged failure to provide additional information about the failed gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious which was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives -- a division of the Justice Department led by Holder.

Dems: Republicans are "Lynching" Eric Holder

With hundreds dead, including an American, thousands of guns missing, and corruption infecting the Obama Administration, the Left has reacted exactly as you would expect them to. Crazed liberals have declared the upcoming vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt is a "lynching."

Here are just a few examples of the incendiary rhetoric.

"Deplorable:"
"To recap:"
"Car thief?" Whatever:
"GOP lynch mobs:"
Again, "lynch mob:"

God help me, these are some of the dumbest things I have ever read.

Organizing a DC Protest to Repeal-- We Need Your Help

The Supreme Court has spoken...

But the American people have, too. With a large majority of this country against ObamaCare, we are left with one recourse: we must sweep the Congressional and Presidential elections.

And not just win, but give a President Romney the 60 votes in the Senate and a large majority in the House.

Look, I didn't vote for Romney in the primaries-- and I think that RomneyCare is unconstitutional, too. It's too late for that argument. Either you are going to vote to strike down ObamaCare or you won't. It's that simple.

That is why I'm proposing a sweeping protest that will be too large for the media to ignore and pop culture to malign.

September 1, 2012 on the National Mall. One million people. We can do this! It's a Saturday near Labor Day that is approachable for millions of conservatives that believe that the only "individual mandate" is one that the individual gives themselves.

Let's get this ball rolling-- let's organize it with all of our blogs. Will you join us?

                    meet

your fellow stooges, comedians
and idiots in congress, the senate
and the white house --


My fellow Americans, we now have a state of
confusion/idiocy, and tyrants rule.  Holder will
probably now win the nobel peace prize, the
November elections will probably be called off,
and we will have to bow to the dictator from
another country who intends to ruin our way of
life.

The supreme (and I use the term loosely) court
has just revealed themselves to be as stupid, as
cowardly, and as asinine as Barry, the white house
zzars, the idiots in congress and the senate.

Not a one of them is fit to live off the benefits of
a free country.  Not one of them is fit to accept a
paycheck for the pitiful job they are doing.

They all deserve a gulag somewhere, but it will
be those who provide the paycheck who will
undoubtedly see the inside of a cell without
windows.

May God have mercy on those who are left.

Roberts Betrays Constitution, Is Key Swing Vote on ObamaCare

In a shocking display of constitutional ignorance, Chief Justice John Roberts was the deciding swing vote that declared ObamaCare unconstitutional. Roberts joined the liberal wing of the court.

Justice Kennedy, who was expected to be the swing vote, came out strongly against ObamaCare. To conservatives, Roberts has stabbed them in the back.
