The First Amendment of the United States Constitution reads:“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”On March 2, 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations and unions have the same free speech rights under the first amendment as individuals.Why is it necessary to prove they also have the protections of the rest of the first amendment? Has anyone ever been granted half of the protections of an amendment, and then redefined as an entity and denied the rest of the rights under said amendment?The Hobby Lobby case before the Supremes is a farce, and never should have reached this level. Religious freedom comes before free speech in the first amendment for a reason.
For many years, our progressive law schools have ignored the reality of the Constitution, teaching instead case law. In a similar break with sanity, our State Department now ignores the reality of the worldwide use of force by tyrants, dictators or thugs. They choose instead to rely on the “Calender Objection Defense” or “Tempest Fugit”. That is where the President and Secretary of Defense, in high dudgeon both, point to the calender and proclaim in their whiniest voices that the actions being undertaken aren’t legal this year! (It apparently would have been fine in 1999, but not this year!) “This is the 21st century, you can’t do that…” Even when said before holding their breath and stomping their feet with great determination, it is still stunningly ineffective, unless you’re looking for a quick laugh…(which Putin and the world shared, at our expense). The ignorance and sophistry of these repeated statements by our President are cringeworthy, designed to make America look foolish and incompetent. Americans know it is only our President and his eager progressive minions that are foolish and incompetent, but that is enough to embolden the world to actions not considered since the last great failed American President, Jimmy Carter.
HE believes HE has evolved to such a superior intellectual and moral level that the world must naturally follow suit. Mr. obama is absurdly ignorant of reality and dangerously narcissistic. His willingness to disarm our country and others in the face of growing military threats is unrealistic. His feel-good fantasy of how HE thinks the world acts because of HIS presence is read by real men to be what it is…appeasement, acquiescence, willing subservience and weakness.
Military power means nothing without the will to use it. Putin has that will, the world does not. Game, set match to Putin. disapproving platitudes or reminding him of the year will not change the facts, or alter the course of an army on the march.
People everywhere expected major calamities New Years Eve 1999. They did not materialize. Apparently, obama and his followers expected the year 2000 to bring forced Peace and Understanding amongst all men, and an end to all military aggression.
That didn’t materialize, either.
It is embarrassing for Americans to see their President come to that realization in such a publicly belittling manner.
This is what happens when a coddled, adored communist raised community organizer gets it in his head he is “Special”. He actually proclaimed himself to be “the one we have been waiting for!” The only thing “special” about President obama is that he is the first American President to turn his back on the Constitution and openly war on America’s citizens, traditions, morals and freedoms.
What we are witnessing on the world stage is the American Progressive rubber hitting the road. The President is fulfilling the role he was raised for. Bowing and groveling at the feet of the world’s dictators by this President was no accident. It was the normal reaction to someone overwhelmed by meeting their heros.
Every Progressive Liberal Democrat has done all they can to diminish America’s military might. Constant lopsided treaties. Giving up missile defense programs. Backing out of agreements with allies to provide missile defense in Europe. Making public pronouncements forswearing a nuclear first strike. Acting out theoretical policies that only work in the real world with another 21st century theoretician.
Military might and the will to use it have always shaped the world, and will always shape the world, diplomats and agreements be damned. I beg the embarrassment we call Secretary of States pardon, but the age old military policies of the 1st thru 20th centuries will always trump the so called civilized diplomats 21st century claptrap. Just because you decide to tell the world you’re sitting out of reality, disarming and cutting back the military, choosing instead to depend on the fantasies of that great philosopher, Rodney King, doesn’t mean the world will stand frozen in acceptance of your fantasy.
No, Mr. President, we can’t “just get along”. Progressive Democrats refusal to accept American exceptionalism, their belief in some great worldwide moral equivalency between all men and their chosen governments, leaves us foundering amidst the real word facts. Fairness and doing what’s right mean nothing to one willing to die, or order others to die, for their cause.
You recently derided Mitt Romney for pointing out that Russia is our greatest enemy. The cold war is over, you claimed. No, President obama, the cold war is only over in the mind of the ignorant. The Russian government, and I will go further and state most governments of the world, are our enemies. Any government based in socialism and communism is our enemy. We may be able to work with some countries, but if their socialist government fails, we have no business giving them a dime to survive, unless they give up their socialist ways. Greece should not get a dime from anyone. If the Greeks strike, let them. Let them destroy themselves, and when they and their government is in ruins, help a free, democrat capitalist society rebuild. Not a dime for any other system, or any other non-democrat free country.
But I digress. Mr. Putin is not going to be stopped by this community organizer, or anyone else in the world. Stop wringing your hands about it, Mr.President. You failed again. You helped disarm Ukraine with empty promises of American protection. You reaffirmed that commitment in 2009.
You are a liar, sir. We in America get hurt by that fact every day as we deal with our healthcare, and the world will be forced to reorganize to deal with your lies. Mr. Putin is not alone, sir. China will be taking Taiwan soon, knowing you will also turn your back on them. None of the leaders of countries we are obligated to protect through treaties will be sleeping well. They realize the promises made by America are only as strong as the American ideals encompassed in the current President. The world knows you care nothing for America or her worldwide reputation, and the tinpot dictators you are so fond of glorifying and bowing to have their long knives out for you.
Jimmy Carter is the only American sleeping better tonight.
Keep pointing out how the world condemns what Mr. Putin has done, Mr. President. You have him laughing at your weakness so heartily, he may not take back Alaska.
“Obligation to Protect”…Everyone But Americans and IsraelisIs our failed Libyan policy, an “obligation to protect,” about to be repeated in the Middle East?When this ridiculous, unconstitutional policy was brought about by the UN, and we joined in to attack Libya, (a country that had not attacked us, nor was in imminent danger of doing so), I pointed out that it would lead to the US attacking Israel.(1)Now that the Middle East has been handed over to the Muslim Brotherhood, (financed by American unions, American taxpayers, Hillary and President obama),(2), and the President just went behind the world’s back to make a lousy nuclear deal (for America, Israel and the world), with Iran, (a deal which breaks numerous UN declarations and sanctions obama pressed for), is it still so far-fetched?(3)It seems President obama’s goal is to let enough time go by in fruitless negotiations for Iran to finish their bomb. While making sure they have the money they need.Israel and Saudi Arabia are making noise about attacking the nuclear sites of obama’s new Iranian friends. (4) The fact that Saudi Arabia is on board with Israel proves two things: one, the threat of Iran is real; two, President obama won’t be satisfied until he alienates every ally we have ever had. (5)He is determined to destroy any future energy deals from the Middle East, and make sure no other country ever has reason to believe in, or rely on, the actions or words of the United States.If the Israelis make good on their threats and launch an attack on the nuclear sites in Iran, does anyone doubt obama will use military force against them to stop them? After all, now he can claim an “obligation to protect” the world from Israel “starting” a war.There is little room in President obama’s world for Israel’s “obligation to protect” herself!(6)(7)Of course, I could be wrong, but really, would anyone be surprised If I’m right?(2) http://kleinonline.wnd.com/2011/08/09/largest-u-s-union-behind-mideast-riots-see-sordid-ties-to-opposition-targeting-u-s-ally-fighting-terrorism-2/(3) http://www.brookings.edu/blogs/iran-at-saban/posts/2013/11/24-doran-hidden-cost-iran-nuclear-deal(5) http://www.forbes.com/sites/richardminiter/2013/11/27/benyamin-netanyahu-and-our-allies-seem-to-have-given-up-on-president-obama/(6) https://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-saban-no-military-strike-iranian-nuke-facilities_769733.html
This evening, Tuesday, September 10, 2013, President obama gave a televised speech, a portion of which may explain his disdain for having to put up with alternative views. One line, in particular, struck me:
“Our ideals and principles, as well as our national security, are at stake in Syria, along with our leadership of a world where we seek to ensure that the worst weapons will never be used.” (1)
Really? President obama thinks America leads the world? That his position makes him “Leader of the World?”
I’m sure the Chinese and Russians had a good laugh about that!
I believe America was, and still is, “The Leader of the FREE world,” as we work with, and protect, the few semi-free peoples of the world, like England, Australia, Canada, etc. (Semi-free because they have no right to firearms for self-protection).
America is not now, never has been, or made the ridiculous claim to be, the leader of the 180 or so countries run by dictators, monarchs, tyrants, communists or any of the other failed forms of government our enemies in the UN exist under.
It is not our business to rescue one dictator to benefit another. No matter who is harmed by our weapons or actions, they have a family living by savage rules that will forever hold a grudge against America and Americans.
The outrageous claim that He, The Leader of The World, can send missiles into another country on a limited basis, and that our involvement will remain limited because we say so first, is asinine and dangerously arrogant. Are we operating in a vacuum? Is there some guarantee that no one will respond against anyone, anywhere, anytime?
Planes flew into our buildings and we sure as hell responded! If someone started lobbing missiles into America because weapons we sold somewhere killed children somewhere, would we retaliate?
But boy-child President obama’s America can lob missiles and rain destruction down on another despots country. 100,000 deaths with conventional weapons have been ignored, but 1,400 have some red line on their method of death. obama gets to punish them! The Leader of The World. Maybe. He’s gonna think about it. He’ll get back to us, but for now, they exist solely at his whim. obama said so. The Leader has spoken!
If he were a real President, and truly believed what he says, as soon as this gassing took place he would have given this speech, but ended it with this line, “for these and other reasons, I have given the order to fire upon targets in Syria to ensure that they, and by extension everyone, understand the ramifications of using these banned weapons. Good night, God bless you all, and God bless the Unites States of America.”
The country would be split on his decision, but the world would know America had a real President.
President obama just ended his call to action speech in the Rose Garden today, (Saturday, 8/31/13), with some questions for the American people’s Representatives in Congress.
I can easily answer all of them, even though he twists and lies about our international treaty responsibilities.
First, he asked about the “price Assad should pay” internationally for killing his own citizens. Sorry to be uncaring, but the military price is ZERO, NADA, NILCH, ZIP!
If the world wants to isolate Syria, fine, but America has no business stepping between any terrorists trying to kill each other, in any way possible. As long as it does not cross the Syrian border, it is not an International problem.
Second, I know of no treaties we have with anyone concerning the treatment of one nations subjects, and America’s responsibility to protect them from harm. Our treaties only come into effect when one group crosses INTERnational borders to attack our allies. Once again, obama twists the truth.
China has always killed it’s peoples with impunity, whether Emperors building walls or Premieres building high-speed train lines obama admires so much. Tianneman Square, killing all but one child in every family. Not our problem.
There is not one reason, with the exception of the fact that obama would be a hero to his people for bringing about the attacks on Israel that are sure to follow his illegal, unconstitutional proposed attack.
While I am heartened by the fact that the boy-child President is going to Congress for the authority he would require, I have yet to see a time when the will of the American people stopped obama from doing as he pleased.
As a matter of fact, Americans are being lied to, spied on, having property confiscated, going to jail to cover up obama’s crimes, and being set-up and prosecuted for the murders the Justice Department has committed on foreign soil. Our health care system has been stolen and destroyed by socialists who want to determine who lives and who dies, in the same manner that the IRS is deciding who lives and who dies in the political arena.
1) not one Congressman or Senator, nor any other politician or talking head, had an answer for Progressive Democrat Rep. Jim McDermott, who stated: “I haven’t heard a single word here about what questions you think we ought to be able to ask you about your tax-exempt request,” concerning the abusive IRS questioning of Conservative groups. The answer of course, is “NOTHING!” Just as any American has the right to open a business, any American has the right to claim what they are to start any government controlled project. The Government, on the other hand, has the right to give the citizens the rules they must follow, and audit them if they think they have done something wrong. Any other answer or attempt to fix this insult to the American tax system is Bull Excrement! No Free American should ever have to prove themselves free and innocent to those that believe they have no basic right to exist.
2) any President continues to support and finance our most deadly enemies around the world with taxpayer funds, and continues to involve us in underdog positions in wars in which we not only have no national interest, but where any American involvement or deaths will bring nothing but unending jihad by the families of the American enemies our President was trying to help. When your enemy is killing thousands of your enemies, let them alone.That is not to say that if a group pledges freedom and is fighting for American values and freedoms we should not support them fully! Look at how we support the only real inclusive democracy and free peoples in the middle east, the Israelis. The day the Israeli’s start banning other religions or peoples from their streets and governments, we should and will turn our back on them, also.That IS to say that no country that is not based in a CAPITALIST SYSTEM, a system that was brought more food and freedom to the world than any other ever tried, should ever get a penny from us. Which means of course, we should let the sewer known as Europe to collapse of their own corruption and failures, and, if they realize the error of their ways, help them. If not, let them disappear onto the ash heap of history. If other failed socialists and communist countries want to support Greece and other countries living above their means, let them. We may be allies with socialist countries, and pledge to help them if attacked from without, but if they fail of their own volition due to mismanagement, tough. Change your ways, admit socialism and communism don’t work, and grow.3) any President grovels and bows to the “international community”, you know, the thugs and dictators that hate us from all over the world, before he can decide what is in America’s best interests.4) a lying, held-in-contempt of congress racist Attorney General, accomplice to thousands of international murders can stand in front of cameras claiming to fight for every legal American to have their right to vote, while fighting any attempts to prove they are legal Americans when they try and vote.5) a person with no verifiable links to any American values, a person who holds our Constitution in contempt and proudly admits he would rather rule over American citizens with the powers a murdering Chinese leader terrorizes their subject with, can be elected President…twice.
White Hispanic George Zimmerman should immediately bring suit against the Justice Dept and Eric Holder and White African President Obama, claiming that their actions violated due process and used the Justice Department and court system in a manner that violated the 14th amendments equal protection clause.
Taxpayer dollars where paid by the Justice Department to “harass and intimidate”, my words, the nation into some act against a man that, at the time, had not been accused, and rightly so.
White African President Obama had his good buddy at GE use his fellow travelers at NBC to blatantly edit a 911 tape of a call by Zimmerman, making it appear he had racist motives for following the suspicious person he saw, and calling the police to report it.
By the time the lies of White African President Obama and his friends became apparent, and people knew the truth of the child that apparently could be the kind of son the Chicago-thug racist White African President would have, Eric Holder had followed his personally inspired false public outrage and spent taxpayer dollars inciting marches and protests demanding that someone indict White Hispanic George Zimmerman, (even if some calling for his arrest knew he would be acquitted later).
Former Sanford Sheriff Bill Lee is already speaking of the pressure to illegally destroy White Hispanic George Zimmerman.
White Hispanic George Zimmerman should act quickly, and get in front of the continuing attempts by the minions of White African President Obama to “harass and intimidate” him until he is broke, destitute and unable to physically defend himself from the friends of Eric Holder in the New Black Panther Party.
Aside from the tragedy of a young life cut short, we have a racist White African President that injected himself personally into a citizens life, before knowing all the facts. We have a theme, a so called constitutional scholar lawyer that once again, as in the case of his fellow racist Professor Gates, admittedly speaks before he knows all the facts.
The real tragedy is that the Chicago thug mentality, that cares not one whit about the massacres of blacks on a daily basis within it’s borders, reached out it’s filthy tentacles to contaminate the nation’s justice system, which was doing fine without it. The tragedy is now the world knows the racist depths our White African President will reach to in his attempts to remake America in his disgusting Chicago image.
Editors note: I had mistakenly claimed Eric Holder appointed Angela Corey to Prosecute White Hispanic George Zimmerman. She was appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott, a month and a half after the justified shooting of Trayvon Martin, because of ginned up public outrage funded, probably illegally, by Eric Holder and White African President Obama.
If the polls are correct, there is only one avenue left for the American people to keep America safe, secure and capitalist. As our former Representatives have turned their backs on the will of the people, WE THE PEOPLE must take the reins of Government and pull them into line.
We need to start the amendment process and go directly to the Constitutional “rules of the game” to protect our heritage.
We need a Constitutional Amendment requiring Americans to show citizenship to register to vote, and show proper, Government issued ID to vote, (not a utility bill or any non-official document).
We need a Constitutional Amendment removing any requirement or permission of the Government to have any say or control over what we and our doctors decide concerning our medical treatment.We need a Constitutional Amendment defining the First Amendment. Freedom of Speech means just that. No one has a right to not be offended by the thoughts or words of others. Anyone may voice their offense, and explain their feelings, and rebut the original statement. That is it. No one should be censored to protect anyone else’s “feelings” or “religion”. Short of violence, or calling for it, nothing is disallowed in the universe of ideas. We understand how the world works by allowing those we vehemently disagree with to express themselves honestly, in any public venue. Funerals are not a public venue.While on the First Amendment, we need to clarify our declaration that any religion is welcome. Unless it infringes on others rights to their own, different religious beliefs. Therefore, I suggest, “Freedom of any Religion that does not call for the punishment, subjugation, forced conversion or death of non-believers.”We need a Constitutional Amendment declaring any citizen of The United States has standing in any courtroom in America to petition for redress against any Government regulation, law, edict or official claiming any authority over that citizen. The thought that a court could censor a citizens rights because they do not “grant” the citizen, (the person giving them their rights, to whom they are responsible for their existence), standing to speak against the very Government born of the rights from that citizen, is repugnant to free people.We need to define the Second Amendment to state it has nothing to do with hunting, but is specifically there to allow for the personal self defense of the free citizens, and their possible defense of their rights against any unresponsive, out of control, tyrannical Government.While these seem logical to me, I hope my fellow citizens have their own ideas. After years of disappointment with a no-longer representative government intent on reinterpreting our founding documents against WE THE PEOPLE, we must act.Our Constitution was written by Honorable Men, and is being bastardized by prostitutes and scumbags until it is unrecognizable.Where are the Constitutional lawyers? Where is the clamor to fix the problem at it’s root?
The smokescreen of telling Americans that we have prisons that will hold the terrorists currently incarcerated at GITMO is classic obfuscation from this failed administration. It presents a straw man argument that no one has raised, and claims to answer the (unasked) question of whether they can be held.
Of course they can be held, in almost any cage or dog pound handy. They are not magicians or superhuman beings. They are dirtbag terrorists and killers with no respect for anyone’s lives, including their own.
No, that is not the question.
The real question is this:
“Mr. President once we bring this scum into a prison near one of our cities or towns, how do we protect those communities surrounding the prison from the terrorists you support and pay?”
CAIR and other terrorist organizations will start flooding that town with public and sleeper agents. Guards will start being followed, their families threatened, kidnapped and killed. The guards will be killed in the streets, as the islamists are now doing in other countries. (NOTE THE LACK OF CONDEMNATION FROM ANY MUSLIM ORGANIZATION!)
The first prison used to house these religious fanatics will be the flash point of the coming wars. It is exactly what Ahmadinejad and obama want. The Iranian murderer wants it so it sparks the war for his 12th imam to return. obama wants it so when Americans object and try and fight back, he can continue to protect his brethren while calling Americans racist, and continue his goal of disarming us.
The “right” of his islamist supporters to kill Americans because of their savage religion will continue to be granted.
The muslim heading up the CIA, (John Brennan) will continue to change talking points and hide any information that might stop his brethrens war in America’s streets. The muslim sympathizer in the White House will continue to lie about the deadly “religion of peace” as it attacks and kills Americans, and will jail or otherwise attack and destroy with any means possible all those trying to warn us of, or stop the coming carnage.
The terrorist we face has a name. It is not single, separate cells. It is one entity with a billion arms.
It is islam.
