If you have read any posts on this blog pertaining to Israel you know I am an avid supporter of Israel. Also I am a bit off the politically correct path in today’s world in that I do not believe the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are deserving of a sovereign nation in land originally intended for a Jewish State at the end of WWI AND from a Biblical perspective the Land is promised by God Almighty as the home of the Jews.
That being said President Barack Hussein Obama’s treatment of Israel is heinous as both a U.S. ally, the treatment of Israel in light of the Bible, the treatment Israel in promoting the Arab fakers that call themselves Palestinians. Not to mention that these pseudo-Palestinians are nothing but a combination Jew-hating Islamic terrorists and/or those that are Jew-hating supporters of Islamic terrorists.
Obama’s throw-Israel-under-the-bus mentality to create a sovereign Palestinian state will set Israel up for the destruction that Muslims around the world pray to their demonic deity Allah to occur. Part of sovereign Palestine fallacy is to rip half of the City of David which is Jerusalem away from the Jewish state to give it to the psycho-pseudo-Palestinians.
United With Israel reports that Obama’s insidiousness against Israel continues by threatening sanctions for building homes for Jews in their own Capital City. At the same time Obama continues to placate an Israel-hating Iran by removing sanctions emboldening this Muslim rogue nation to produce nuke Inter-Continent Ballistic missiles.
Obama Threatens to Punish Israel for Building in Jerusalem, While Easing Sanctions on Iran
By United with Israel Staff
December 7, 2014
Will Obama sanction Israel for building in its capital, Jerusalem? Congress is worried and demands answers. How can the US impose sanctions against Israel while easing sanctions against Iran?
A report revealed by Ha’aretz newspaper indicates that the Obama administration is going to impose sanctions on Israel because of its building plans in Jerusalem, and Congress is demanding clarification on the issue.
Republican Congressmen came together and dispatched a harsh letter to President Barack Obama, demanding that he provide explanations regarding the report.
“We urge you and your Administration to clarify these reports immediately,” 47 republican Congressmen demanded of the Obama administration. “Israel is one of our strongest allies, and the mere notion that the Administration would unilaterally impose sanctions against Israel is not only unwise, but is extremely worrisome. Such reports send a clear message to our friends and enemies alike that such alliances with the United States government can no longer be unquestionably trusted.”
“Further, at no point in time has Congress given the Administration the authority to sanction Israel… any attempts to undermine the U.S.’s support of Israel will only further diminish the Administration’s ability to get Congressional support for any potential agreement with Iran,” the letter warned.
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC), who authored the letter, tweeted, “The White House is negotiating sanctions with Iran, but is unwilling to give a definitive ‘NO’ on sanctions against Israel. Appalling.”
Meadows further stated: “What message does it send to the world for the U.S. to impose sanctions against Israel while easing sanctions against Iran—a state-sponsor of terror with an abysmal human rights record?”
Penalizing Israel for Building in its Capital
Israel’s Ha’aretz first reported that following Obama’s growing frustration with Israel the Obama administration held secret internal meetings to discuss taking action against Israel for its ongoing building in Jerusalem. The meetings were attended by officials from both the State Department and White House.
The report has since generated much controversy.
When asked about the report Thursday, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf refused to answer questions. Harf simply replied: “I’m obviously not going to comment one way or another on reported internal deliberations. We’ve made clear our position on settlement activity publicly and that hasn’t changed.”
On Friday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest failed to give a definitive yes or no answer when asked about the Administration’s position during the White House press briefing.
Tough on Israel, Weak on Iran
The Free Beacon points out that the possibility of sanctioning Israel for its ongoing construction sends a signal that the Obama administration is willing to go further in its denunciations of Israel than any previous White House. At the same time, the Obama administration is working hard to relax the existing sanctions leveled against Iran, and to stop Congress from leveling further sanctions.
One senior congressional aide expressed shock about the possibility of sanctions against Israel while talking to the Free Beacon:
“If these reports are true, this would mark a new era of unprecedented hostility from the White House against our strongest ally in the Middle East. It’s impossible not to notice the irony of the administration mulling sanctions on Israel while threatening to veto new sanctions against Iran.”
“The Obama administration is against sanctions on Iran, but for them on Israel,” reiterated Noah Pollak, executive director of the pro-Israel organization Emergency Committee for Israel, to the Free Beacon. “Is [White House deputy national security adviser] Ben Rhodes wearing a green headband to work these days?”
How You Can Help Israel and Jerusalem
Israel’s sovereignty in Jerusalem, its capital, has come under increased attack in past months. We need to stand together and show the world that Jerusalem is not a bargaining chip in border negotiations or a rallying point for terrorists. It is a Holy City meant to provide a beacon of light to all nations under the sovereignty of Israel.

Former Tea Party GOP candidate for Senator from Alaska has caught the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) fear mongering to their constituents that the Republicans desire to impeach President Obama and throw him in the slammer. If only it was true.
From what have read it is only committed Tea Party Republicans that would go with the impeachment process. The politicians still running the GOP agenda are too concerned about political fallout to do the right thing and impeach Obama followed by a Senate conviction that would actually open the door for Federal prosecution of America’s criminal President.
Miller believes the DCCC impeachment fear mongering is merely a fundraising tactic. I pray the Republicans turn a Dem fund raising tactic into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
DEMS WARN BACKERS: OBAMA COULD GO TO PRISON!
‘Republicans think this is their chance to destroy the president’
November 23, 2014 4:30 PM
A mass email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Sunday tried to drum up support by warning President Obama is in danger of impeachment, or even worse, jail time.
The email – with subject line “Impeachment? Prison??? – Sign now, stand with President Obama” – claims Obama “took bold, courageous action this week to fix our nation’s broken immigration system,” but now is “under attack.”
“Republicans think this is their chance to destroy the president,” the email reads. “They’re threatening lawsuits, shutdowns, impeachment? One Republican congressman even suggested President Obama be thrown in jail!”
The DCCC then implores Democrats to show they’re “still standing with President Obama” and “have his back” by signing an online petition.
Former Alaskan GOP Senate Candidate Joe Miller noticed the email and posted it on his blog, “Restoring Liberty”:
“Apparently, members of the president’s party are facing some pretty serious heat over King Obama’s unconstitutional power grab this week,” Miller quipped. “Appeals to the president’s support base seem to be growing in their hysteria.”
Miller continued: “Given the fact that most Americans do not support Obama’s power grab, and even members of his own party disapprove, impeachment should be on the table.
“Regrettably, it’s not,” Miller commented. “Fresh out of overwhelming mid-term victories, the GOP is once again moving tepidly. Even on the issue that arguably provided their margin of success – Obamacare – leadership has stated that a vote on repeal will not even be held.
“So the DCCC’s hysteria over impeachment and jail time is just a fundraising gimmick,” Miller concluded. “They know, as do all Washington insiders, that the ruling class will ensure continuation of the status quo. And absent another Jacksonian or Reagan revolution, we’ll continue our slide into the dustbin of history.”
The mention of jail time, however, wasn’t merely invented.
As WND reported, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., did suggest before Obama’s speech about his executive action on immigration that the president may be about to commit a felony worthy of five years jail time.
He told Slate that with his forthcoming executive actions on immigration, President Obama risked breaking a federal statute “making it a felony to aid, abet or entice a foreigner to illegally enter the U.S.”
Said Brooks: “At some point, you have to evaluate whether the president’s conduct aids or abets, encourages or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States of America. That has a five-year in-jail penalty associated with it.”

Intro to Smith’s ‘A Constitutional Crisis’
Editor: John R. Houk
November 23, 2014
Justin Smith writes a brilliant piece on President Barack Hussein Obama’s immigration amnesty speech notifying America on television he has the constitutional authority to provide amnesty on his terms for illegal aliens (the more pc term these days is illegal immigrants) coming and staying in America beyond the rule of law’s stipulations.
I am trying real hard not to mar Justin’s essay with my editorial comments and links so I am handling that issue with a quote some interesting links to the quote:
During Obama’s speech, he used the example of Astrid, a young female illegal alien, who in spite of “hiding” from ICE completed three college degrees. Those degrees took taxpayer dollars and one American’s place in the admission rolls, while Astrid broke U.S. law again by falsifying her college application using someone else’s Social Security number: That’s acceptable I suppose, since Obama’s S.S. number is a fake too. [Bold Emphasis Mine] –Justin Smith
Now I realize Mainstream Republicans claim impeachment is a bad idea because of the belief the Senate would never garner the sufficient votes for a conviction. AND I realize the Leftist Dems are openly daring Republicans to proceed with an impeachment process propagandizing the same fears of the Mainstream Republicans. BUT dear God in Heaven, there is more than enough constitutional criteria to impeach Obama and to convict him.
If the Republicans fail to make a substantial effort to smear the Dems’ faces with the legitimate impeachable criteria, then Justin’s solution in his last paragraph becomes a greater possibility to occur!
A Constitutional Crisis
A Republic Lost
By Justin O. Smith
Sent: 11/21/2014 11:38 PM
No U.S. President has the right to destroy the U.S. Constitution and completely disregard it, in the course of his duty to all Americans. We are supposed to be a nation of laws, but on November 20, 2014 Obama became a rogue president, and he unilaterally declared amnesty for 30 million illegal aliens, by my count, as he violated the principles of separation of powers that serve as the bulwark to protect our liberties, defying the American people, the election results and usurping the legislative process and essentially saying “to hell with the Constitution.”
President Obama has threatened to enact an “immigration reform bill” through executive order for months now, if Congress did not pass a bill he could sign, even though the real issue is not one of reforms but rather one of enforcement. All the “immigration reform” in the world will not matter in the face of a Congress reluctant to enforce the law. This is the reason the Secure Fence Act of 2006 still leaves a fence with holes in it, and our southern border is porous as ever.
Article I Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress exclusive authority to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization … “And it is the president’s Constitutional duty under Article II Section 3, to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed … .”
Can anyone point to a single provision, Article or Section of the Constitution that suspends the principles of separation of powers and supersedes Congressional authority anytime a president, in his sole discretion, decides such because Congress hasn’t met his legislative demands?
This new Executive Amnesty of Obama’s will protect approximately 5 million illegal aliens from deportation and grant them work permits, according to Josh Earnst, Press Secretary, and other White House sources. Other than certain far-left, fringe progressive law professors, who advocate a post-Constitutional America, no one seriously believes that Obama has the authority to do this, even under “prosecutorial discretion,” and not a single Democrat has been able to cite any authority for this act.
Immediately after Obama’s Executive Amnesty Speech, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) stated, “Attempts to undermine the law via executive fiat, regardless of motivation, are dangerous. The President himself recognized his inability to do [this] …” in the past.
Twenty-two times Obama has stated that he does not have the legal or Constitutional authority to grant amnesty to millions, once saying he is not an “emperor” but a president. He even argued against amnesty in his 2006 book ‘The Audacity of Hope’.
The Obama administration is now justifying Obama’s action through prosecutorial discretion, as they contend that he can decide which groups of immigrants should be a priority. Obama is also arguing that he can go further and use “deferred action” to formally protect certain immigrants from deportation.
During Obama’s speech, he used the example of Astrid, a young female illegal alien, who in spite of “hiding” from ICE completed three college degrees. Those degrees took taxpayer dollars and one American’s place in the admission rolls, while Astrid broke U.S. law again by falsifying her college application using someone else’s Social Security number: That’s acceptable I suppose, since Obama’s S.S. number is a fake too.
Significant differences exist between Obama’s recent EO and President Ronald Reagan’s 1987 policy. Reagan deferred deportation for children of illegal aliens, who had been granted amnesty, placing them on a path to becoming naturalized citizens, which was the general intent of Congress at the time, since a “one time” blanket amnesty had just passed. Obama is going against the will of Congress again, which considered and rejected his DREAM Act on several occasions, including when both houses of Congress were controlled by the Democratic Party.
Obama is bypassing Congress entirely. He is unConstitutionally revising existing law and, without Congressional approval, imposing new ones that have been explicitly rejected by Congress numerous times, thereby acting like the emperor of immigration policy.
Rep Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said, “Tonight President Obama issued a royal decree, as any good monarch would do … This president is single handedly creating a Constitutional crisis and hurting the citizens he took an oath to protect and defend.”
James Madison wrote in Federalist Paper #47, “the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
One countermeasure is to defund all non-essential government agencies, since the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services is self-funded through immigration application fees, according to House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-KY). Defunding most of the government will force Obama to choose between his Executive Amnesty or a government shutdown, and Congress should not be afraid or balk at using this option. A government shutdown would show Obama that the Republicans are willing to fight.
In a Fox News appearance, Rep Michele Bachmann (R-MN) called on Americans to rally on December 3rd at high noon on the west steps of the Capitol and tell Congress to “defund amnesty.”
Speaker John Boehner’s lawsuit against Obama’s executive overreach, represented by George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, is a sham. Everybody understands that Obama will be gone by the time it is settled, and his Executive Amnesty will have become de facto law, unless a successor has the guts to rescind it. One must wonder if Boehner and Senator Mitch McConnell are siding with Obama, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Wall Street Journal, because McConnell stated “there won’t be any shutdowns on my watch” after winning re-election.
It is no accident that the Constitution’s first substantive words are “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” Because of the problems experienced through delegated authority in England, the Framers understood that such authority, currently utilized by today’s U.S. Congress in empowering Presidential Executive orders, leads to dangerous absolutism – extra-legal, supra-legal and consolidated power. And, although the Constitution carefully barred this threat, Constitutional doctrine has since legitimized this dangerous sort of power; therefore, Americans should no longer accept some vague notion of “rule of law” that allows uncontrolled delegation through executive orders, but rather, Americans must demand rule through the law and under the law.
If the Republicans in Congress do not act more forcefully than a lawsuit by March 10th, by March 15th every Son and Daughter of Liberty, who loves America, must arm themselves and march on the Capitol Building and the White House, prepared to fight if necessary, to end this elective despotism, or otherwise, accept that the Republic, the rule of law and Freedom in America have vanished. Americans must not let any President place himself above the Constitution and accountability to the American people he is duty bound to defend and protect.

Leftists, Dems and even some Republicans that I have to assume that are in the RINO category have been shouting down critics of the UN Agenda 21 as a fringe part of the Ring Wing Conspiracy Theorists. If you haven’t leaned yet let me say that when a Leftist or Dem Party Leftist goes out of the way to paint a picture of lunacy to an accusation from a Conservative there is probably more validity than lunacy.
I mean a majority of voters have demonstrated they have caught onto Dem lies on the November 4 elections when they threw the bums out of the control of both Houses of Congress. The Dem’s liar-in-chief Obama has painted a picture of ‘I didn’t do it’ for six years with the American Press backing up his lies. Just look at some of the more prominent scandals which are essentially just lying cover-ups hidden under the power and thumb of Presidential authority. Actually Obama’s lies and deception seems to be a lifetime component – For Example:
· Official Obama Administration Scandals List! (ConservativeAmerican.org 10/15/08)
· The NEW Obama Scandals List! (ConservativeAmerican.org 12/10/13)
Voters that truly love America have their own priority of Obama scandals that just should be impeachable or – my God – at least be investigated to discover just how heinous that scandal is without Executive Privilege used as an excuse to cover-up crimes against the law. The scandals that bother me the most are the ones actually aimed against voters to deceive or impugn for political reasons:
1. Benghazigate: It was bad enough that there was zero attempt to send help before four Americans died as the hands of Islamic terrorism, but the Administration tried to spin the debacle as it was the fault of a foreign national creating a poorly acted trailer of a movie portraying Mohammed in a negative light even though bad acting made the true story look ludicrous. That was an outright freaking LIE to get reelected in 2012. CAN YOU SAY WATERGATE TRADITION?
2. IRS Scandal: The IRS acted as a Secret Police-like arm of Obama Administration to silence the voice of Conservative organizations like the Tea Party in hope of keeping Conservative truth from American voters. ANOTHER WATERGATE TRADITION!
3. Veteran Affairs Scandal:
Beginning in April 2014 and continuing for a number of weeks thereafter, an ever-growing amount of information was learned about a massive scandal that quietly had been infecting the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for several years. Initially it was reported that VA patients were being forced to wait for inordinately long periods of time before they were permitted to see a doctor and get medical treatment — particularly at one VA hospital in Phoenix, Ariziona (sic). To be seen by a primary care provider, for example, generally required a 115-day wait. These long wait times sometimes resulted in dire health consequences for the patients: According to CNN, as many as 40 veterans had died while on wait lists at the Phoenix hospital. READ THE REST (VETERANS AFFAIRS (VA) SCANDAL OF 2014; DTN)
As if the VA isn’t nefarious enough on its own, it is currently been uncovered White House officials under Obama’s watch directly ordered a VA cover-up so that no political fallout comes to the liar-in-chief’s doorstep:
Almost two months ago, a whistleblower from inside the Department of Veteran Affairs claimed that the Inspector General watered down the final report in the VA’s wait-list scandal to minimize the political damage. IG Richard Griffin denied that he had been pressured to adjust his findings, which the Arizona Republic found used a nearly impossible standard for responsibility to get the VA off the hook for hundreds of fraud-related deaths. On Friday, though, the House Committee on Veteran Affairs published e-mails that clearly show the White House demanding those changes to the final report: READ THE REST (Emails show White House “requested” IG to change VA scandal report; By ED MORRISSEY; Hot Air; 11/3/14 1:01 PM)
Trust me the three scandals I just mentioned are a mere drop in the bucket to the nefarious practices that should lead to an Obama impeachment. BUT probably won’t because the Republican Establishment (and incredulously some Conservatives) would rather let Obama get away with crimes against American citizens and American voters ‘for the good of the country’.
This brings me back to the Left stealth subversion against the USA via Agenda 21. While Obama dismantles America overtly embracing Establishment fears to impeach him, Agenda 21 keeps methodically on dismantling the American Constitution. The Daily Signal has embraced the remarkably under reported case of Martha Boneta battling Virginia’s Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) agenda to rip away her property rights. For me though The Daily Signal conspicuously fails to connect the PEC to Agenda 21. Largely I believe this failure is because PEC continues to act with impunity even though the Virginia Right to Farm ACT passed:
This legislation passed by the Virginia State Assembly and signed into law by a Democratic Party Governor places a curb on the power of the eco-Marxism of Green Lefties. It was a win for Property Rights over collectivist thinking. BUT Martha Boneta still endured eco-fascism from the Agenda 21 group promoting the globalist policies of so-called sustainability in which the United Nations Leftists look to promote an elitist global vision in which the population is manipulated by abortion, government ordered authority over private property and ways of living to place the planet’s population to certain permanent level. Martha Boneta over an eight year period actually was forced to manage her family farm under Gestapo-style tactics to either force to submit to what the Piedmont Environment Council (PEC) dictated to her in the management of her farm.
On Thursday November 6 Martha and the PEC presented their cases on who controls the property – owner or easement holder in which a new owner did not sign. The arbitration went to the State government appointed Virginia Outdoors Foundation. The VOF board members are appointed by the State elected Governor. This means there is some oversight in the decision making process of the VOF. The VOF sided with Martha Boneta.
RICHMOND – Martha Boneta’s eight-year battle with an environmental group over a conservation easement on her farm in Virginia’s Hunt Country moved closer to resolution yesterday as another organization agreed to take over enforcement activities.
Boneta and representatives of the Piedmont Environmental Council appeared at a meeting of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation’s board of trustees in the Virginia General Assembly building here. The foundation is a co-holder of the easement on Boneta’s farm.
Each side made 20-minute presentations about the easement on Boneta’s property and what she has called abuses on the part of the environmental council in its enforcement of the terms.
After the presentations, the Virginia Outdoors Foundation’s seven-member board voted 6-0 to adopt a resolution expressing its willingness to take over enforcement activities.
State Del. Brenda Pogge, R-James City County, attended the meeting and told The Daily Signal afterward that she plans to introduce legislation in the upcoming session of the Virginia General Assembly to reform easements on public lands.
“I’m a citizen legislator who is outraged by the abuse we have seen in this case,” Pogge said, adding:
“The way Martha was treated does not resemble truth, justice and the American way. That’s what we need to get back to. My bill would address the use of easements on public lands that would include schools, firehouses and other public buildings. It’s just a start. My bill would not address private lands.” (Outdoors Foundation’s Offer Could End Farmer’s Dispute With Green Group Over Property Rights; By Kevin Mooney; The Daily Signal; 11/7/14)
People like Martha Boneta are the leaders of the next American Revolution. Obama represents the new King George. Only when grassroots Americans wake-up to withstand the anti-Constitution Left will the principles of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness return.
The depraved morals the Left transforms America into leads to the second dark ages of human depravity and ignorance. The masses will become tied to the land again. Collectivist masters will become the new feudal lords. The masses dependent on the largesse of the collective will have no need to read, write or think because their needs will be dictated from the upper directorate administered by the feudal bureaucratic managers who themselves who no need for educated means. Why? Just follow the dictates from above means there is no need for learning – just obeying. Obedience to the State supplies all mass needs. Only the elite need formal remedial knowledge. Only the elite of the elite need to develop the ability to think to perpetuate a sustainable static existence. The essence of sustainability is submission to the politburo plan. Deviation from sustainability is personal Liberty.
America is Liberty. The grassroots Bonetas are Americans weary of the despots demanding a sustainable agenda.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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.–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 Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, 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 absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. … The Declaration of Independence
MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
… Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? …
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. … There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! (Patrick Henry. Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death! St. John’s Church, Richmond, Virginia March 23, 1775. History.org)
Is America at the point of arms? NO! Or at least not yet. The Republican Party election victory on November 4, 2014 might be the last chance for Americans that have enjoyed Liberty fought for by our Founding Fathers to counter President Barack Hussein Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. If the Republican leadership fails to heed the call of American voters the static sustainable agenda of the global stealth Marxist elite will continue to envelope this nation until the need for arms might be all that remains to resist the despotic designs of the Leftist transformation of America.
Keep in mind that transformation agenda is subtle. Keep the masses poor and dependent on government. Destroy America’s Christian heritage that has been the foundation of a strong moral society. Part of subtlety is atheism, Islam Supremacism and a collectivist mind-set.
Whatever undermines American Exceptionalism is a surrender to the Obama fundamental transformation.
Six U.S. Senators have placed outgoing (i.e. lame duck) – Majority Leader Senator Reid – on noticed that if President Barack Hussein Obama unilaterally forces an illegal alien amnesty edict, that audacious Presidential act will cause a constitutional crisis. It is the belief of the Senators (Original Intent) that immigration law is solely the purview of the Congress.
Since I agree with those six Senators, Obama illegal Alien Amnesty should be another nail to the coffin of impeachment. God knows many of those nails have already been hammered but political numbers, political correctness, and a cowardly GOP leadership have FAILED to move the coffin from the House to the Senate.
Cruz, Lee Threaten ‘Procedural’ War on Senate Floor to Stop ‘Lawless Amnesty’
November 5, 2014 – 3:43 PM
Republican Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Pat Roberts of Kansas, Mike Crapo of Idaho, and David Vitter of Louisiana sent a letter to lame-duck Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada today saying that if President Obama takes unilateral action to grant amnesty to illegal aliens it “will create a constitutional crisis.”
The senators told Reid that they would assist him in enacting a measure to stop Obama from unilaterally granting an amnesty, but that if Reid lets Obama go forward with such an amnesty they “would use all procedural means necessary” to make the Senate focus on the constitutional crisis they say that this “lawless amnesty” would create.
On Dec. 11, the continuing resolution now funding the government will expire. Before that date, both Houses of Congress will need to approve a new continuing resolution to fund the government beyond that date.
If the CR does not permit the Executive Branch to spend money on some action, the Executive Branch cannot take that action.
“We write to express our alarm with President Obama’s announced intention to take unilateral executive action by the end of this year to lawlessly grant amnesty to immigrants who have entered the country illegally,” the senators wrote Reid.
“The Supreme Court has recognized that ‘over no conceivable subject is the power of Congress more complete’ than its power over immigration,” the senators said. “Therefore, President Obama will be exercising powers properly belonging to Congress if he makes good his threat.
“This will create a constitutional crisis that demands action by Congress to restore the separation of powers,” the senators told Reid.
“As majority leader of the Senate, you have the responsibility of not only representing the citizens of your state, but also of protecting the Constitution through vigilant exercise of the checks and balances provided under the Constitution,” wrote Cruz, Lee, Sessions, Roberts, Crapo and Vitter.
“Therefore, we write to offer our full assistance in ensuring expeditious Senate debate and passage for a measure that preserves the power of Congress by blocking any action the president may take to violate the Constitution and unilaterally grant amnesty,” the senators said.
“[H]owever,” they continued, “should you decline to defend the Senate and the Constitution from executive overreach, the undersigned senators will use all procedural means necessary to return the Senate’s focus during the lame duck session to resolving the constitutional crisis created by President Obama’s lawless amnesty.”

HILARIOUS – Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood explain Postpartum Taylor Swift Disorder (PPTSD) at the expense of Obama and the Democrats losing the Senate.
If Obama gives amnesty to nearly 30 million illegal aliens and brings in 34 million more, he will have increased the population of the U.S. by 19% overnight. This is infinitely worse than the Schumer-Rubio bill, S744, which doubles legal immigrant numbers to 2 million annually, and it will prove catastrophic during this period when 58 million working age U.S. citizens are without jobs. – Justin O. Smith
Justin Smith addresses President Barack Hussein Obama’s and the Dem Party’s agenda to flood the USA with Latino immigrants to transform the electorate into a permanent Democratic Party voting bloc. If you love the America the Founding Fathers initiated, then you have to realize that an Obama-Leftist transformation will end that national experiment began in 1776 and initiated into the rule of law with the U.S. Constitution in 1789.
American Interests First
By Justin O. Smith

American interests must come first in any discussion on immigration and the illegal alien invasion at the core of the U.S. immigration policies, that are currently threatening U.S. national security, and most recently, our immigration crisis has been exacerbated by President Obama’s failure to recognize his primary duty to protect the safety and economic well-being of all Americans. He ignores seventy percent of Americans, who do not welcome these illegal aliens, and he embraces the illegal aliens’ concerns and views them as future Democratic voters, eligible for free legal aid, housing, education, health care and “amnesty”, thus ensuring the complete fundamental transformation of America; demands from illegal aliens have no place in this discussion, if America is to survive as a nation.
On October 25th, Oliver Merino, whose mother faces deportation in North Carolina, held up a sign that read, “Hillary, do you stand with our immigrant families?”
Americans are sympathetic to the terrible situations others face worldwide, and we try to help where we can. Americans are even extremely welcoming to legal immigrants. But, if a person is here illegally, no matter if it’s to provide for their children _ good reasons, they are still violating the laws of the United States and deserve no more consideration than a thief.
Many Latino leaders have demanded reassurances that Obama will not put off executive action that gives legal status to millions of illegal aliens currently in the U.S. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Representatives Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) make the case in an October 30th op-ed for Univision that “Congress and the Constitution give presidents broad authority to take executive action on immigration policy” and that the authority has been used by past presidents, however, this Congressionally delegated authority was only intended to supplement existing law; Obama’s “amnesty would be violating existing U.S. statutes and making new law, which is not within the executive’s Constitutional authority.
Obama knows that he must wait until after the November 4th elections, before unilaterally granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. This is such an unpopular potential “solution” to a manufactured immigration “crisis” that it would cost the Democrats a heavy political cost, especially in the hotly contested Senate races; however, White House officials have reassured frustrated Latino lawmakers, such as Representative Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), that Obama intends to take executive action before the end of the year. And, despite no official action from Obama, recent covert actions by the Obama administration reveal the proof of an impending Obama amnesty.
On October 3, 2014, the original Solicitation [order] #HSSCCG-14-R-00028 left the offices of Citizenship and Immigration Services [USCIS] and went through a Burlington, Vermont contracting office. This document requisitioned “Permanent Resident Cards [PRC] and Employment Authorization Cards … for an estimated 4 million cards annually with the potential to buy 34 million cards total” over the next five years (point of contact _ ronald b. email@example.com. / phone: 8028724645).
If Obama gives amnesty to nearly 30 million illegal aliens and brings in 34 million more, he will have increased the population of the U.S. by 19% overnight. This is infinitely worse than the Schumer-Rubio bill, S744, which doubles legal immigrant numbers to 2 million annually, and it will prove catastrophic during this period when 58 million working age U.S. citizens are without jobs.
A June 2014 article, by Steve Camarota and Karen Zeigler, illustrated that net job gains from 2000 to 2014 have gone to immigrants, legal and illegal, while natural born U.S. citizens accounted for two-thirds of the growth in the total working age population. And, in conjunction with this, studies like the one conducted by Harvard economist Dr. George Borjas also prove that American workers lose wages from illegal and legal immigration.
Along with concerns over jobs for U.S. citizens, Americans are concerned over a dangerous disease problem, as Americans saw hundreds of new cases of Enterovirus D-68 [about virus], heretofore uncommon, arrive with this summer’s 65,000 border crashers, who did not receive any health inspections. They were dispersed across the country, and now American children are being paralyzed by this deadly disease, from Chicago to New Jersey and on to Kansas City, MO and Children’s Mercy Hospital where five children have died.
According to Dr. Reichmann of the New Jersey Tuberculosis Clinic, “antibiotic strains of tuberculosis have migrated to the border states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California. Since the 1990s cases among immigrants, legal and illegal, rose from 30% to 42%, and over the past three years, half of the 16,000 new cases of tuberculosis were found in illegal aliens.
Aside from health and economic woes, Americans are also witnessing an increased growth and expansion of third world microcosms in U.S. sovereign territory, due to Progressive multicultural policies and immigrant reluctance to become fluent in the English language. Nearly 62 million U.S. residents speak a foreign language at home, representing 21% of America’s population, with 27 million of this number born in the U.S.
Steven Camarota, Director of Research at the Center for Immigration Studies offers this observation: “Allowing in over one million new legal immigrants a year and, to a lesser extent, tolerating illegal immigration has important implications for preserving a common language.” It also has important implications for preserving a nation.
Why are you not insisting that the U.S. military be deployed to reinforce an overburdened Border Patrol along the southern border and that the U.S. immigration laws be enforced? How much does it cost all of us when a majority of Americans stay silent?
Kenneth Palinkas, president of the National Citizenship and Immigration Service union, recently told the ‘Examiner’, “We are still the rubber-stamp entry into the United States … Whether it’s the failure to uphold the public charge laws, the abuse of our asylum procedures, the admission of Islamist radicals, or visas for health risks, the taxpayers are being fleeced and public safety is being endangered on a daily basis.”
Shortly after the revelation of the 34 million PRCs to be handed out by the Obama administration, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said, “This revelation provides startling confirmation of the crisis facing our Republic.” Sessions accused Obama of “violation of plain statute”, in a bid to “nullify the immigration laws of the United States and its sovereign people.”
Americans must demand that Congress defund any “amnesty” executive order Obama might make, and Americans must call for the repeal of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act that injects over one million legal immigrants into the U.S. annually; demand that all immigration be halted temporarily, and tell Congressmen and Senators that before they worry about less fortunate foreign nationals, they need to consider the cost of their actions on the less fortunate of the United States, whose Constitution they have sworn to uphold.

Hmm … As an American, what would you think if the Obama Administration directed hundreds of millions of dollars to go to Islamic Terrorists? As an American you should be supportive of the USA’s only real ally in the Middle East – Israel. A Jim Kouri article at Examiner.com reported on 10/12/14 that President Barack Hussein Obama’s Administration has GIVEN the Hamas Islamic terrorists $212 MILLION bucks because those poor abused folks in Gaza have been abused by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF):
Kerry had arrived in Cairo early Sunday specifically attend the conference with other leaders to discuss raising billions of dollars to rebuild the Gaza Strip, according to counterterrorism expert Raoul Plattsberg.
“The humanitarian challenges [are] enormous and the [Palestinian] people of Gaza need our help desperately, not tomorrow, not next week, they need it now,” Kerry said during the conference that had the participation of officials from 50 countries and 20 NGOs (non-government organizations). (Obama, Kerry to fork over another $212 million to Hamas-ruled Gaza; By Jim Kouri; Examiner.com; 10/12/14)
EXCUSE ME! Hamas is on the U.S. State Department’s terrorist watch list and has been so since 1997.
Hamas, an acronym for Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiya (“Islamic Resistance Movement”), was founded by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, a Palestinian cleric who became an activist in local branches of the Muslim Brotherhood after dedicating his early life to Islamic scholarship in Cairo. …
… Hamas published its charter, calling for the destruction of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic society in historic Palestine. … READ ENTIRE BACKGROUNDER (Hamas; By Zachary Laub; CFR; Updated 8/1/14)
Obama’s supports the enemies of our ally Israel. The propaganda thus justifies Hamas targeting of Jewish civilians – men, women, teenagers and children – for murder in the name of Islam and for the destruction of Israel. American and European Leftists are okay with this kind of “humanitarian” support because apparently it is acceptable to murder Jews in a more technological society such as tiny Israel and whine about a sophisticated response from Israel that rips Hamas’ infrastructure (See Also HERE) that also kills human shields that are as much voluntary as they may be coerced to sacrifice themselves to protect Hamas military assets that target Israeli cities.
I have a problem with this idiotic antisemitic reasoning by Western Leftists. AND my fellow Americans, you should have a problem with this as well.
Israel has struggled to exist as an independent nation in the ORIGINAL homeland of the world’s Jews since 1948 when FIVE (or seven considering the Arab-Muslim militia set-up within the defunct British Mandate for Palestine) invading Muslim-nation armies tried to destroy it more for selfish territorial desires by relatively newly independent Muslim nations using the Islamic dar al-Islam (House of Islam) argument that Muslims were being displaced by usurping post-WWII European Jews.
The only thing remotely true about the Muslim apologist propaganda is that a majority of Jews returning to their ancient homeland were from persecuted European nations stretching from the Atlantic to Russia (then USSR). These European Jews began returning to their homeland even before WWII which means before Adolf Hitler made his contemptuous attempt to exterminate Jews of irreligious heritage and religious Jews from the European continent. Of course after the Western world became aware of the result of Hitler’s attempted Final Solution for Jewry via the Holocaust murdering about SIX MILLION Jews, the impetus to establish a sovereign Jewish Nation became something the West’s more democratic elected governments were forced to listen in a more positive manner.
Hence when many Western nations began to view their National Interests lay more with pacifying Middle Eastern Muslims than supporting an independent sovereign Jewish Nation, some of those Western nations began backroom efforts to thwart an independent Israel. The United Kingdom in particular sent British military officers as the leadership corps of Jordan’s (then Transjordan) Arab Legion which was the only Muslim military force that was able to push back the rag tag but unified Jewish forces of the new Israel. Jordan’s Arab Legion under the command of British generalship pushed Israeli forces back from historical Judea-Samaria rooted out the ancient Jewish Quarter of the Jerusalem Old City (now termed as East Jerusalem by Muslim apologists and global Leftists) until a rough armistice was reached after it became apparent the other invading Muslim armies failed in their unholy quest to drive Jews into the Mediterranean Sea completing another Holocaust of Jews a mere three years after Hitler’s execution of his Final Solution Holocaust.
I am still amazed that Muslims have been taught so much hatred toward Jews that they cannot agree to befriending a very tiny sliver of land of the ancient Jewish Homeland to Jews who have had both a heartfelt desire to live free from antisemitic persecution and/or a religious desire to attain their aged old prayer of “next year in Jerusalem” (Orthodox thinking HERE and HERE; Jewish Reform Allegorical thinking HERE and HERE; Conservative/Masorti thinking HERE; Historical HERE – Full Disclosure: I am what many would describe as a Christian Zionist [ICEJ & John Hagee] hence the preceding links on Jewish attitudes toward this prayer is subject to my quick perusal and may not be totally accurate).
The Muslim-Arabs accredited as displaced after 1948 are largely (but obviously not totally) come from Muslim descendants that were also fairly recent arrivals to the part of the Levant which is now Israel. AND during the years of Muslim nations threatening to destroy Israel those displaced Muslims got out of dodge because they didn’t want to be around when Jews defending their new sovereignty fought with blood thirsty Muslim-Arab armies dedicated to killing Jews. Those displaced Muslims chose not to be victims of the crossfire, indeed the invading armies had sent out word to flee to safety until the Jews were cleansed from the land.
So when the majority of invading armies failed in their mission to destroy Israel, that left a refugee problem that the nations representing those invading armies REFUSED to solve by absorbing them into their own nations. Instead it would be decided to exploit those refugees as a tool for continuous future invasions and after 1967 the promotion of Islamic terrorism to undermine Israel’s existence.
Blog Editor – Two articles refuting Muslim Apologists & Revisionist Historians:
Supporting any kind of Jew-hatred for the sake of Islamic Supremacism is something I will always rail against.
Illegal immigration that grants multicultural amnesty will undermine the American culture concept of E Pluribus Unum – Out the Many, ONE. The illegal immigrants that insist on living in the USA while refusing to assimilate to American culture will ultimately destroy America. Do you want that? If not, sign this petition.

Stop Obama from Granting Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants
5,000 Signature Needed
At Time of this Post: 703 Signed
President Barack Obama
Signing an executive order to amnesty for illegal immigrants is not only a bad idea, it’s unconstitutional.
The White House is sending out signals that, yes, Obama is seriously contemplating taking executive actions, bypassing Congress, that could create legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. Senior advisors confirm this unconstitutional, unwise action is being planned for after the November midterm election.
Any executive order on amnesty will result in negative consequences. Congress has appropriately held any kind of immigration reform until the border is secure and the problem of illegal immigration is under control. Furthermore, Congress would have no appetite to tackle any needed immigration policy fixes in the context of unilateral executive action. An executive order would perpetuate the distrust of government and underline Obama’s unwillingness to enforce existing law.
But most importantly, those consequences extend well beyond the issue of immigration itself. An executive amnesty would be a trampling of the constitution and a sign of truly out-of-control presidential authority. Acting alone to impart legal status to millions of people could be the worst yet in President Obama’s seemingly nonstop abuse of power.
HOW THIS WILL HELP
After the election, President Obama is planning to abuse his power yet again by bypassing Congress and granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. He must be stopped! Sign the petition and share with your friends.
