The 9th Court Usurps Power!

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/13/2017 7:19 AM

 

President Trump doesn’t need to issue any new travel ban order, that may or may not please the anti-American activist judges of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal or other supporters of Islam and Sharia law (see Justice Elena Kagan’s tenure at Harvard University), open borders and international communism in the Supreme Court and within America’s own population. His original order was well within the U.S. Constitution and the law, and, in order to stop this current intrusion on the President’s authority in areas of foreign policy and national security, a usurpation of power and a judicial coup d’état, President Trump should defy the 9th Court and set to work with the Republican majority and any agreeable Democrats to limit the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction under Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution and reclaim stolen legislative powers for Congress.

 

It has universally been acknowledged for over 230 years that the President, the United States Commander-in-Chief, has broad authority and great leeway in all matters of immigration and foreign policy and national security [Judge Napolitano & NRO], which places the recent ruling of leftist activist judges Michelle Friedland (Obama appointee) and William Canby Jr. (Carter appointee) on par with an act of treason. These two judges are so willing to give President Trump a political black eye, allowing Trump’s “Muslim ban” campaign statements to be used in the evaluation of his executive order, that they have ignored the law, circumvented the Constitution and violated the separation of powers clause between coequal branches of government; and, they have blatantly dismissed the reality  of refugees, who can’t prove who they are and whether or not they have any ties to Islamic terrorist groups, while allowing district judge James Robart, another leftist activist judge (notwithstanding being a Bush appointee), to absurdly overrule the President of the United States on border security during wartime.

 

There is not any manner of violation against the U.S. Constitution and the 1965 Immigration Act in President Trump’s travel ban. Trump isn’t discriminating against anyone, but rather, he is looking at seven nations from a security threat assessment, which were already determined to be state sponsors of terror by former President Obama and his advisors, addressed in Section 1187 (a) (12) of an Obama-era provision of the immigration law.

 

And also in his executive order, President Trump expressly cites 1182 (f), enacted in 1952, which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such time as he may deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants … “. [Blog Editor: bold-italics is Editor’s]

 

In 1893, America was detaining approximately 20 percent of all hopeful immigrants reaching Ellis Island, due to sickness and disabilities, and anarchists and the insane were automatically rejected [Blog Editor: History.com point 4-  Immigrants were subject to physical and mental exams to ensure they were fit for admittance to the United States]. About two percent of these immigrants were judged unfit to become U.S. citizens and sent home on the next ship. By the 1920s, our government established quotas based on nationality and skill. And the majority of Americans have always understood that just like anyone has the right to decide who enters their home, so too, our nation has that same sovereign right.

 

No “moral obligation” to these refugees exists that can compel us to allow them to enter without knowing for certain who they are. The moral obligation to open our doors, often mentioned by the Leftists and International Communists, doesn’t mean America must throw reason and caution to the wind.

 

People who do not share our values — Islamofascists seeking to reach America’s shores and murder Americans — and anti-American “refugees” seeking to transform America into a Balkanized hell are not welcome here.

 

Why weren’t all of these anti-American leftist judges evoking Emma Lazarus and Lady Liberty lifting her lamp “beside the golden door” when President Clinton sent little 6 year old Elian Gonzalez back to a communist dictatorship in Cuba, under the executive branch’s broad power? Or when President Obama turned away real refugees fleeing Castro’s oppression “yearning to breathe free“? [Blog Editor: See Also Breitbart & 100% Fed Up]

 

America doesn’t have to destroy its cultural identity by helping foreigners, but this is precisely what Democrat commie bastards such as President Johnson and Senator Ted Kennedy intended to accomplish through the 1965 Immigration Act. This one law has eroded our cultural identity severely and created extremely detrimental demographic changes over time. And most recently, former President Obama specifically brought in one million immigrants from Muslim majority countries like Kosovo, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan, even though these countries were the origin of terrorists that have already attacked America.

 

Many of America’s “progressive” Leftists consider the destruction of America, as we know it, to be a desirable goal, however, most Americans reject their fundamental change. Americans who love this country want a strong America, that will be able to defeat the dangerous ideologies currently threatening Western Civilization.

 

Rebuke the disingenuous pious progressives who decry those of us supporting the President’s executive order as anti-immigrant and issue flowery utterances on sanctuary, when sanctuary is for the truly persecuted innocents, like the Christians in the Middle East. Exercising our first responsibility to protect ourselves and Our Beloved America bears no shame.

 

Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ala) stated that Trump’s executive order was “plainly legal” under both statute and the Constitution, adding: “No foreigner has a constitutional right to enter the United States and courts ought not second-guess sensitive national security decisions of the President. This misguided ruling is from the 9th Circuit, the most notoriously left-wing court in America and the most reversed court at the Supreme Court.

 

Representative Mo Brooks (R-Ala) said, “Unfortunately, American lives are at risk until this unfounded and reckless [9th Court restraining] order is reversed by the Supreme Court.”

 

How can Americans trust unreliable and corrupt courts with our national security? The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare to be both constitutional and a tax, after Obama called it a “penalty” for years. The courts have overturned the will of ‘We the People’ in numerous referendums and centuries of traditions and hundreds of state and federal laws, so that they could manufacture non-existent rights to abortion and deviant, perverse homosexual “marriage” [coupling], rights that cannot and never will be found in Madison’s Constitution.

 

Judges and justices are not empowered by the Constitution to make U.S. law or govern the nation. Those duties fall solely to Congress and the President.

 

Pat Buchanan observed on February 10th that President Andrew Jackson defied Chief Justice John Marshall’s “prohibition” against moving the Cherokee Indians across the Mississippi and to the western frontier. He also noted President Lincoln considered sending U.S. troops to arrest Chief Justice Roger Taney, when Taney declared Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus unconstitutional.

 

President Trump must simply defy U.S. District Judge Robart’s overly broad and illegal restraining order, upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal. He must order Homeland Security and his State Department and Justice Department to continue executing his executive order which is in accordance with the U.S. Constitution and existing law, because his act is a rare and righteous moment in this war against terrorism, the Islamofascists, the Radical Left of America and the International Communists, who seek our demise. And a Constitutional crisis is much preferred over more murdered innocent Americans.

On Defining Religion

 

By Nonie Darwish

February 12, 2017 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

  • What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam and that Muslims must, sooner or later, demand to live under an Islamic government.

 

  • The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader rather than to see a dictatorship — secular or theocratic — as a world leader.

 

  • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with “the people of the book” — Jews and Christians — but to replace them, after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible.

 

  • Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and it relies on government enforcement to do so.

 

  • Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?

 

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said that President Donald Trump’s 90-day ban on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries is “a religiously based ban,” and “if they can ban Muslims, why can’t they ban Mormons.” This has become the position of the Democratic Party and the mainstream media, which has influenced not only the American public but has convinced the majority of the world that America is “bad.” How can we blame the world, and even a good segment of American citizens, for hating America when such disingenuous and misleading claims are aired to the world from US officials and broadcast by American television channels?

 

The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump Administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader, rather than to see a dictatorship — secular or theocratic — as a world leader. He ran as a Republican; meanwhile, Democrats and the mainstream media refuse to engage in respectful and legitimate debate on the most vital threat to Western civilization in the twenty-first century: Islam. Truth has become irrelevant; people seem to prefer a political game of tug-of-war to sway public opinion against the Trump Administration, and, presumably, to elect Democrats forever. That is how the system is set up.

 

Political discussions on television have become extremely frustrating; they have turned into shouting matches and name-calling at the least informative levels. Television hosts often become instigators and participants in the shouting matches. The thinking is apparently that the louder they get, the more attractive the program will be. Meanwhile everyone is talking at once; the viewer cannot hear anyone, so the program could not be more boring.

 

Under the US Constitution, freedom of religion is protected. and Islam has been welcomed inside the West on that basis as one of the three Abrahamic religions. According to Western values and the Western understanding of the word, “religion” is supposed to be a personal relationship with God, where free will is of utmost importance; the believer has authority only over himself or herself when it comes to religious laws or punishing sins (such as leaving the religion or committing adultery) — quite different from criminal laws intended to protect society. Western values also allow followers of a religion the freedom to proselytize, but never by resorting to government enforcement.

 

Bottom line, the Western definition of religion is in harmony with the Biblical values of the human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and that all human beings are created equal under the law. It is considered a basic Western value to view God, family and country as a top priority.

 

Now let us compare these values to Islamic values:

 

  • Muslim citizens have the right to punish other citizens with humiliating, severe, cruel and unusual punishments such as death, flogging and amputation, for sinning against Allah, the Quran or Islam. Those “crimes” include leaving Islam, being a homosexual, or committing adultery. And if the Islamic government does not enforce such punishments, any Muslim on the street has the right to apply the punishment against another Muslim and not be prosecuted. That is why apostates, such as myself, cannot visit any Muslim county; the fear is not only from Islamic governments but from anyone on the street.

 

  • Being a Muslim is not a personal relationship with God, as it is under the Bible, but is enforced by the state at birth. When a child is born in Egypt to a Muslim father, the birth certificate is stamped “Muslim” and all government-issued documents as well. A child must learn Islamic studies in school and practice Islam throughout his life. In Egypt, the twin sons of a Christian divorced mother were forced to take Islamic studies and become Muslim just because their originally-Christian father converted to Islam. Today, in Egypt, I am still considered Muslim and such a status could never change if I ever lived there again.

 

  • Islamic law and leaders rely on government enforcement — under penalty of death — to keep Muslims within Islam and to convert the minority Christian population into Islam. Islamic sharia law, obliges Islamic states to enforce religious law, and if the Muslim head of state refuses to follow religious law, sharia permits the public to use force to remove the head of state from office.

 

  • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with “the people of the book,” Jews and Christians, but to replace them — after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible. Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and relies on government enforcement to do so.

 

The tenets above are just a few of the differences in values between Islam, the Bible and the Western concept of religion. What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam, and Muslims must demand to live under an Islamic government sooner or later. That might explain the reason for the eternal violence in nearly all Muslim countries, between government being in the hands of a religious theocracy or of the military. Islam, as it is practiced today, has violated all Western definitions of religion and values.

 

Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?

Leftist Vilification of Steve Bannon

***UPDATE 11/16/17***
Blog Editor Idiot Alert:

I have mistakenly said Ellison is taking the Minority Leadership spot being vacated by Senator Lying Harry Reid. In my idiocy to not fully understand what the Dems had in mind was in not realizing Keith Ellison is a Congressman from Minnesota and not a Senator. He is currently the Dem fav to take over the Chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). He would replace Donna Brazile caught trying to fix Crooked Hillary’s election debates who in turn replaced Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz who fixed a Crooked Hillary Clinton Primary victory over Socialist minded Senator Bernie Sanders. Leaving out my idiocy, this post still tells the truth about Steve Bannon and shows Rep. Keith Ellison as a person who snuggles up with Islamic terrorists and Radical Islam!  

 

President-Elect Trump selected Steve Bannon as his Chief Strategist. The Left went cuckoo saying Bannon is a white supremacist Antisemite. AND YET in full hypocrisy-mode place Muslim Senator inline to replace lying Senator Reid as the Dem Party Leader in the Senate. Ellison’s associations with Jew-hating Islamic terrorists such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood expose the Dem hypocrisy.

 

Wikipedia (usually leaning a bit the Left) has a decent bio about Bannon introducing his current status relating to President-Elect Trump. Then goes into his personal very briefly, then his business life leading up to his Breitbart days, then to his involvement with the Trump campaign being sure to mention the vilification by Senator Liar Reid and Conservative-hating SPLC and then finishing with the label “Personal life”. Under “Personal life” you will discover Bannon has been married three times with bitter divorces and the ex-wives are the source of Antisemitic and domestic dispute accusations of which NONE was ever document by public disclosure or the courts which the Ex never showed up to follow through with domestic violence accusations.

 

Here are some excerpts from WikipediaEarly live” and “Personal life”:

 

Early life

 

Stephen Kevin Bannon was born on November 27, 1953 in Norfolk, Virginia into a working-class, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats.[8][9][10] He graduated from Virginia Tech in 1976 and holds a master’s degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University. In 1983, Bannon received an M.B.A. degree with honors from Harvard Business School.[11]

Bannon was an officer in the United States Navy, serving on the destroyer USS Paul F. Foster as a Surface Warfare Officer in the Pacific Fleet and stateside as a special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon.[12]

 

Personal life

 

Bannon’s first marriage was to Cathleen Houff Jordan. They had a daughter, Maureen.[38] Following their divorce, Bannon married former investment banker Mary Louise Piccard in April 1995. Their twin daughters were born three days later.[39] After Piccard and Bannon divorced in 1997, Bannon married Diane Clohesy. That marriage also ended in divorce in 2009.[40]

 

Bannon was charged with misdemeanor domestic violencebattery and dissuading a witness in early January 1996, after Piccard accused Bannon of domestic abuse. The charges were later dropped when his now ex-wife did not show up to court.[41] Piccard also stated that Bannon had made antisemitic remarks about choice of schools, saying that he did not want to send his children to The Archer School for Girls because Jews raise their children to be “whiny brats”. Bannon’s spokesperson denied the accusation, noting that he had chosen to send both his children to the Archer School.[41][42][43][44][45] Bannon’s association with the alt-right movement, along with his aforementioned alleged antisemitic remarks, have contributed to accusations of white nationalism from the Southern Poverty Law Center [Blog Editor: Wikipedia provides a description more applicable to the 60s Civil Rights movement when the SPLC was a force for good against actual hate-groups not too happy about equal rights for African-Americans. Today the SPLC considers Conservative values groups and Biblical morality groups as hate-groups as well. Look at a better picture of the SPLC- FBI Scrubbed SPLC as a Resource and Conservapedia SPLC Exposé] and other advocacy groups, commentators, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.[46][47][48][33][49] [Take note I removed Wikipedia explanatory links I felt might be busy-work in knowing Bannon.] (Stephen Bannon; Wikipedia; page was last modified on 15 November 2016 19:57)

 

Christine Niles writing at the Catholic organization as the Church Militant (not exactly White Supremacist since those racist groups usually include Catholics in their vitriol), shows some of the Leftist defamation against Steve Bannon AND includes the defense by David Horowitz a Jewish Pro-Israel prolific writer:

 

Left becomes unhinged over Catholic chief strategist

 

Donald Trump’s choice of Steve Bannon as chief strategist in his cabinet is raising howls of protest from the liberal Left, with Dan Pfeiffer, ex-senior adviser to President Obama, issuing a tweet that read: “Nation exhales because white nationalist only gets second most influential job in White House.”

 

The Anti-Defamation League went one further, tarring Bannon with the racist/nationalist/anti-Semite brush. “It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the ‘alt-right’ — a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists — is slated to be a senior staff member in the ‘people’s house,'” the group’s statement read.

 

And the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) denounced the appointment as one that “sends the disturbing message that anti-Muslim conspiracy theories and white-nationalist ideology will be welcome in the White House.”

 

huffpo-bannon-defamation

HuffPo Bannon Defamation

 

Huffington Post has perhaps the most inflammatory report, the front of the website showcasing Bannon under the headline “White Nationalist in the White House.” The magazine went on to claim Trump’s appointment is setting up “a civil war” in the administration.

 

David Horowitz, however, is dismissing the outrage. “The losers of the left have worked themselves into such a bizarre hysteria over the fact that they lost the White House that they have lost all connection to reality and are now hyping their most ludicrously paranoid fantasies,” he remarked.

 

[Church Militant video: “A TRUMP PRESIDENCY” not available for embed]

 

 

Horowitz proceeds to argue how unfounded the “anti-Semite” charge is against Bannon. The one phrase the media have latched onto in order to prove Bannon’s so-called Jew hatred is the headline labeling Bill Kristol a “renegade Jew.”

 

The only problem? Bannon didn’t write the headline; Horowitz — a Jew — did.

 

I wrote the article when Kristol set out to lead the “Never Trump” movement, after Trump had secured the Republican nomination. I would write it again in a heartbeat. I would write it the same way and with the same headline. Bill Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that launched the Arab drive to destroy Israel and push its Jews into the sea (that was their slogan).

 

Horowitz went on to vouch for Bannon’s character. “I have known Steve Bannon for many years. This is a good man. He does not have an Anti-Semitic bone in READ THE REST (HYSTERICS OVER TRUMP APPOINTEE STEVE BANNON; By Christine Niles, M.St. (Oxon.), J.D.; ChurchMilitant.com; 11/14/16)

 

Evidently if you are a Conservative Patriot, a supporter of the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution and an America First kind-of-guy; the Left considers you a White Supremacist and a racist. Now that’s a load of hyperbolic horse manure.

 

My obvious displeasure for the Leftist character assassination of Steven Bannon is from a Robert Spencer article I found on The Counter Jihad Report which in turn got it from FrontPageMag.com. (undoubtedly both on the SPLC hate-groups list)

Steve Bannon and Keith Ellison: Do the Democrats Really Care About Anti-Semitism?

 

 steve-bannon-keith-ellison

Steve Bannon – Keith Ellison

 

By Robert Spencer

November15 2016

Originally: Front Page Magazine

The Counter Jihad Report

 

When is anti-Semitism not anti-Semitism? When it comes from the Left, of course.

 

President-elect Trump has enraged the establishment media by choosing Steven K. Bannon as his chief strategist, because Bannon, they claim on the flimsiest of evidence, is a white supremacist and an anti-Semite. Meanwhile, that same media is hailing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) for announcing his candidacy for Chairman of the Democratic National Committee – despite Ellison’s very real links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, two groups that are outdone by no one in anti-Semitism.

 

“A chorus of critics took to Twitter,” said the New York Times, “to lament what they said was a frightening normalization of the fringe views that Mr. Bannon promoted as the chairman of Breitbart News. The site has for years given voice to anti-Semitic, racist and white nationalist ideology.”

 

The evidence? Slim to none. As David Horowitz pointed out Monday, the source for the claim that Bannon is anti-Semitic is “a one sentence claim from an angry ex-wife in divorce court no less, that Bannon didn’t want their kids to go to school with Jews.” Horowitz noted in response that Bannon had wanted to produce a Horowitz biopic: “I find that particularly amusing since Bannon wanted to make a film to celebrate this Jew’s life.”

 

Horowitz also noted that CNN hit Bannon over “a headline at Breitbart.com calling Bill Kristol a ‘renegade Jew.’” Surely that proves Bannon’s anti-Semitism, right? Wrong. Said Horowitz: “In fact, neither Breitbart nor Bannon is responsible for that statement. A Jew is. I wrote the article, which was neither requested nor commissioned by Breitbart. And I wrote the headline: ‘Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew,’” because “Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that launched the Arab drive to destroy Israel and push its Jews into the sea (that was their slogan).”

 

Joel B. Pollak, senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News and an Orthodox Jew, declared: “I have worked with Stephen K. Bannon, President-elect Donald Trump’s new chief strategist and senior counselor, for nearly six years at Breitbart News. I can say, without hesitation, that Steve is a friend of the Jewish people and a defender of Israel, as well as being a passionate American patriot and a great leader.”

 

Meanwhile, the same Democrats who are howling about Bannon are applauding Ellison’s announcement that he is running for DNC Chair, despite the abundant evidence of Ellison’s links to anti-Semitic groups. Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

It gets worse. In 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Muslim American Society is a Muslim Brotherhood organization: “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” That’s from the Chicago Tribune in 2004, in an article that is now carried on the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb.

 

Also, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) raised large amounts of for Ellison’s first campaign, and he has spoken at numerous CAIR events. Yet CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

 

Hamas has declared: “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.” Ellison has spoken before several groups that have ties to Hamas, and has accepted money from a Muslim Brotherhood group; Hamas styles itself the Muslim Brotherhood for Palestine. Does Keith Ellison also, then, think that “killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah”? No establishment media “journalist” would ever dream of asking him that question, but it’s a fair one: Hamas repeatedly demonstrates genuine and murderous anti-Semitism, and Ellison has repeatedly shown himself willing and even eager to associate himself with Hamas-linked groups.

 

That’s the real story of anti-Semitism in American politics this week. But the media propagandists are most certainly not going to pause in their hysteria over Trump and Bannon to take any notice of it. Their hypocrisy is obvious, their dishonesty unrelenting, and their moral authority absolutely nil.

About The Counter Jihad Report

 

There is an urgent need for the public to become informed about the Global Islamic Jihad Movement. We must demand from our leaders that they become familiar with Islamic Law and jihadist ideology so that our counterterrorism policies can better protect us from this growing threat.

 

This blog is mainly a news aggregating site but also includes an extensive library of resources for studying Islam and networking with other Counter Jihad activists. My goal has been to pull from a variety of the most trusted and reliable sources to educate the public on the counter jihad movement. The many RSS feeds and counterjihad twitter feed in the sidebar are meant to provide a time saving jumping off point to access all the headlines and READ THE REST

Dems – Beware that the Nuclear Option Swings Both Ways


Nuclear Option - Jackass Hypocrisy

John R. Houk

© January 10, 2013

 

Does anyone remember when both Houses of Congress had a GOP majority? Further does anyone remember that the GOP in Senate was so upset with Dem filibustering preventing GOP nominations from making it to a floor vote that the Senate Majority Leader considered the so-called ‘Nuclear Option’ to break the Dem filibuster? AND does anyone recall how the Dems and Leftist pundits went ballistic after the ‘Nuclear Option’ was considered to get something done with an uncooperative Dem minority?

 

The hypocrisy of the Democrats is coming full circle with them contemplating using the Nuclear Option to get their way over the Republicans when it comes to controversial Leftist nominations and Leftist legislation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is attempting to change Senate Rules procedurally to render super majority cloture rules ineffective during a filibuster.

 

In this Congressional Session ending the filibuster via the Nuclear Option only would be effective for the Dems in cases of nomination confirmations. The GOP is still the majority in the House of Representatives. As far as legislation is concerned the Dem Senate can go nuclear all they want because the House can block Senate Dem legislation. BUT when it comes to confirming nominees for those Offices the Senate must approve the Nuclear Option would give President Barack Hussein Obama and the Senate Dems absolute power in shoveling through Obama’s radical Leftist nominations.

 

IF HARRY REID FOLLOWS THROUGH with Nuclear Option procedural changes all I have to say is “What goes around comes around”. A time will come around again when the Republican Party (or hopefully a fully endowed Conservative oriented Political Party) will attain at least a slim majority again in the Senate. Let the Dems cry all they want when that day arrives.

 

Senator Rand Paul is circulating a petition pertaining to Harry Reid’s consideration of the Nuclear Option. SIGN IT!

Harry Reid is Going Nuclear

The new Congress convenes on January 22.

And rumors are circulating on Capitol Hill that Harry Reid is scheming to shut up and silence all opposition by using the “nuclear option” to destroy the Senate filibuster.

Should Senator Reid succeed, he’ll be able to RAM Barack Obama’s entire radical agenda into law.

And according to inside counts – he’s only a few votes shy of pulling off this massive power grab.

You and I MUST stop him.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

You see, current Senate rules require 67 votes – a two-thirds majority – to shut down debate and change the rules.

And it was designed this way for a reason.

The Senate was intended to be a place where legislation was slowed down.

It was supposed to be the place where amendments were offered, debate was encouraged, and all participated in a process that led to better laws.

But like a bully on the playground, Senator Reid doesn’t give a flip about the rules.

And he believes he has the authority to flat-out ignore the Senate’s parliamentary procedures, long-standing traditions and specific rules in his mad rush for more power.

In short, Senator Reid wants the Majority Party to have the unchecked ability to pass legislation with virtually little to no opposition.

Massive tax hikes. Out-of-control spending. Gun control. Big Labor power grabs. More attacks on our God-given liberties.

We’re talking Harry Reid and Barack Obama having the power to pass anything they can dream up.

Just the thought of it sends shivers down my spine.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

Of course, Harry Reid isn’t stupid – he knows exactly what he’s doing. He knows he’s breaking Senate rules if he uses the “nuclear option.”

In fact, back in 2005 Senator Reid correctly argued, “For people to suggest that you can break the rules to change the rules is Un-American.”

The truth is, Senator Reid just doesn’t care.

And he’s willing to destroy the unique characteristics of the Senate simply to get his way.

That’s why it’s vital you sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

And if at all possible, along with your signed Fax Bomb, I hope you’ll agree to make a generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford.

Your generous contribution will help RAND PAC flood the offices of vulnerable, fence-riding U.S. Senators with faxes DEMANDING they vote against Harry Reid’s attempt to use the “nuclear option” to seize total power.

John, I know times are tough, but this is one fight you and I can’t afford to lose.

There’s just too much at stake.

It’s critical you and I defeat Harry Reid’s attempt to seize total control of the U.S. Senate.

So please, sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb, and agree to make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford – IMMEDIATELY.

Time is running out to mobilize millions of Americans to this fight.

So please don’t delay. Act NOW!

In Liberty,

 

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. When the new Congress convenes on January 22 – Harry Reid is expected to use the “nuclear option” to seize total control of the U.S. Senate.

Should he succeed, he’ll be able to RAM Barack Obama’s entire radical agenda into law – with little to no opposition.

So please, sign your “Stop the Power Grab” Fax Bomb, and agree to make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 – or whatever you can afford – IMMEDIATELY.

Get Over the Gaffe and STILL Support Akin for Senate


Todd Akin Family

John R. Houk

GOP Rep. Todd Akin is running for the Senate Seat currently held by the Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill. Akin has enjoyed an ever widening poll lead over McCaskill until a gaffe moment made him out to be an uncaring male concerning the issue of rape and abortion.

 

Democrats jumped on Akin like flies on manure. That was to be expected from Leftist hypocrites. The irony has been is that many big dog Republicans including presumptive Republican Nominee for President Mitt Romney.

 

Now I think I can guess why these Establishment Republicans sold Akin out.

 

I am certain at the top of the list is Political Correctness and the ability of the Democratic Party to control (or at least manage) the Media talking points when it comes to Republicans, Tea Party Candidates and Social Conservatives. Establishment Republicans are ever concerned on the damage the Left Mainstream Media (MSM) can form in the mind of voters concerning image.

                                                       

Next on the list of the Establishment sell-out of Akin is an actual Establishment Republican dislike of the ever growing Conservative wing of the GOP that primarily dedicated to Tea Party politics and Social Conservatism. In essence it is my belief the Establishment Republican power base are the Crony Capitalists that Tea Party Conservatives are weary of being associated.

 

For a little clarity’s sake, what is Crony Capitalism?

 

Crony capitalism and genuine capitalism, if not opposites, are fundamentally opposed. Unfortunately the broader public, to date, is largely unaware of this.

 

Crony capitalism is the marriage of the state and private special interests. Some people have called it corporatism, mercantilism, fascism, or even Communism.

 

We will call it crony capitalism.

 

By whatever name, it is phony capitalism.

 

Over the years the public has been taught that many of the problems it faces on a day to day basis such as the lack of jobs, rising prices, corruption in Congress, and so on are a result of capitalism.

 

If so, it is a perverted capitalism.

 

These unsavory realities are largely the result of government/private “partnerships.”

 

Whether in banking, agriculture, housing, energy, transportation, manufacturing, or nearly any other facet of the economy, the “unsavory” parts are often the result of public/private collusion.

 

Why can’t you get any kind of return on … READ THE REST (What is Crony Capitalism; website AgainstCronyCapitalism.org)

 

These are my thoughts on why Akin’s own Republican Party has sold him out on a gaffe.

 

As I said, I am not surprised the Dems went after Akin’s gaffe because Dems are hypocrites when it comes to the moral high ground. If I Googled enough I can come up with a number of Dems that had moral or near criminal behavior that the Dems and the MSM never called for a resignation or not to run an election campaign. However I like to point out one of the biggest Dem dog the Democrats protected from political fall-out.

 

That big dog Dem is former President Slick Willie (Bill or William) Clinton. Clinton’s behavior at the least was an adulterous skirt chaser and at the worst a serial rapist. When Clinton’s sperm was proven to be on the skirt of then intern Monica Lewinsky, it was indisputable proof an unfaithful husband. Clinton should have resigned and of course he refused. AND the Dems and the MSM backed Clinton’s desire to remain in the Office of President of the United States.

 

Rep. Todd Akin in his campaign to unseat Claire McCaskill from the Senate is a Pro-Life Social Conservative. He believes life begins at conception (as do I). His thoughts on abortion and the right to life run so deep that he is in the crowd that rape should not be a reason for killing a baby (I waver back and forth on this issue). In explaining his Pro-Life stance he used the words “legitimate rape” in an interview. Of course there is no such thing as a legitimate rape. So what other phrase could Rep. Akin have used?

 

Perhaps there is a difference between rape and consensual rough sex. In which case, a better word for “legitimate” would be actual rape. Statistics do show that actual rape produces far less pregnancies than consensual sex. Do the statistics line up with Akin’s thought that a woman’s biology somehow prevents male sperm from fertilizing a female egg in rape? This is where Akin screwed up. The statistics and the alleged science Akin refers to are not a match.

 

The statistics refer more to the occasions of rape and pregnancy has more to do with the sexual prowess of the rapist. An example I read runs something like – a rapist is impotent or prematurely ejaculates – hence the statistics implicates a failure of planting the male seed rather than the female body rejecting a rapist’s sperm.

 

Below are three WND articles that defend Rep. Todd Akin’s right to stick to his guns and continue to run for the Office of Senator from the State of Missouri based on his politics rather than a gaffe – really the first if not only gaffe in Akin’s campaign to unseat a Liberal Democratic Party Senator.
