Isn’t the Key Word ‘ILLEGAL’ in Illegal Immigration?


John R. Houk

Thanks largely to the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) Trump Derangement Syndrome, propaganda created hysteria has occurred about illegal immigrant children being separated from illegal alien parents entering and getting  caught by immigration authorities at the U.S. border.

 

I claim this is a manufactured hysteria because of the fact former President Obama used the separation policy extensively with zero moral outcry from the MSM. I find it particularly disgusting that this same MSM acts like President Trump’s zero toleration policy on illegal immigration initiated the child/parent separation policy.

 

On a personal level I don’t have a problem with separating illegal alien children from their illegal alien parents. The key word is “ILLEGAL”! Since parents are adults knowing fully well that breaking a law will have legal consequences. It is unreasonable to hold the illegal alien children accountable for the illegal alien parents law breaking actions.

 

The Dems have successfully used the manufactured hysteria to get a political win which I am certain they hope is a pawn move for open borders. The Dems have cajoled President Trump to use the power of Executive Order to keep children and parents together when they illegally enter the USA.

 

I can’t wait to see how the government funds the policy change since the Dems have no intention of funding any immigration reform proposed or supported by President Trump. After all, a Presidential EO is only as good as the President is in Office. AND an EO does not have funding power, that can only come from Congress.

 

AGAIN, thanks to MSM created hysteria and their comrade accomplices the Dems, the camps where the illegal alien children were housed are being housed have been equated with Nazi concentration internment camps. The kind of camps used by Nazi-Germans to ethnically cleanse Jews from the earth during WWII.

While the MSM showed photos of illegal alien children in dog cages from the Obama Administration days, the reality was illegal alien children experience something more akin to Summer Camp that American parents would send their kids to (if they could afford it).

My point is I had little problem with the children/parent situation. If the illegal alien parents didn’t want to be separated from their children, they should either not have made arduous trek from wherever or at some point begin the process gaining legal immigrant status or legal refugee status.

 

Now the inspiration for this blog post comes from Ari Bussel. Bussel sent an email conversation between himself and a gal named Joy. Bussel was responding to a poor-illegal-immigrant-children-plight email seeking political and financial support to deliver these abused kids from President Trump’s zero tolerance policy.

 

Just a head’s up about the Joy portion of the email. She provides a Liberal plan of action including links to enable a Liberal action response. Obviously, I am not suggesting my fellow Conservatives to work the Liberal agenda.

Re: Helping Migrant Families Separated at the Border

Dear John,

 

There is so much controversy around the sweet, innocent children (just use the word “children,” and the heart melts) and the hated, horrible, devilish President Trump.  He must hate them!

 

Following is an illuminating exchange – Joy is my mother’s cousin.  Joy’s parents were married in Chicago in 1929.  My mother side of the family was then in Europe, where both were to be exterminated just over a decade later.

 

Jewish Americans have traditionally been Democrats.  Joy, and most of our entire extended family (numbering many hundreds, including one that every kid in the country would recognize the name), is Democrat.  So we disagree and fight and love each other not any less.

 

However, comparing the children of those trying to enter the country illegally and the amazing treatment and conditions they receive to children – like my parents – during the Holocaust is an affront to common sense and to the memory of all those of perished.

 

Here is the exchange from today:

 

 

Dear Joy,

 

While I did not receive the below e-mail (it may have gone to one of my old gmail addresses which I am not using), my father did.

 

I am not sure if “disgust,” “utter shock” or simple “bewilderment” will be the most appropriate manner to describe my father’s (actually my parents’) reaction.

 

Allow me then to respond based on what I have observed and heard this morning.

 

Both my parents are Holocaust Survivors.  My father’s mother went out one day to bring food, never to return.  Our good Polish neighbors apparently informed there was a Jew in their midst.  I will not enumerate all the family members who perished during the Holocaust, luckily there were a few, so very few, who survived.

 

My father and my uncle escaped the Warsaw Ghetto before the Uprising.  We can talk about forced- or other separation of children from their parents.  We can think about more than a million children murdered, and those others who actually survived had their childhood robbed and the rest of their lives affected.  Both my parents are exactly such “Child Survivors” (they were children at the time), and what happened them affects them to this very day; physically and emotionally.

 

We can talk about a brave teacher, school principal, who would not leave his children and walked with them to the very end, although he was extended the opportunity to save his own life.  Children were shot, butchered, burned, enslaved, put to hard-labor.  That was then; under the Nazi regime and with the active and jubilant participation of the local populations (yes, including the Poles).

 

To compare anything that is happening today in the USA (or for that matter in Israel or elsewhere) to the Nazi Death Camps (lest the Poles get insulted) does great disservice to the memory of the more than six millions of us – our own family – who were butchered and systematically murdered with the intention of annihilating us all.

 

How can one in good conscience compare the almost “vacation-style” conditions the children of people trying to illegally enter the country and the treatment they are receiving to, for example, the Warsaw Ghetto?  And remember, this was nothing compared to, for instance, Auschwitz-Birkenau.  Every Shabbat I spend time with Survivors of these camps.  Some will be (and are) still able and willing to share their stories; of what it meant to survive the horrors that were a moment-to-moment, non-stopping, on-going Inferno.

 

You are correct – the issue is NOT political (Republicans / Democrats, Deplorables / Adorables, those who think the President does a good job and those who give him not an ounce of leeway).  For any one from our family to compare modern day conditions here in the USA and treatment of others – be they illegal immigrants, refugees or detainees – to Nazi Germany and the Concentration Camps of Ghettos is plainly wrong.

 

This definitely hurt both my parents, for it apparently brought back memories buried so deep; memories that can never be separated from who they are; from who and what we are.

 

This is personal – deeply so – as it affects OUR family.

 

Always,

Ari Bussel

We are usually very careful about the distribution of our political e-mails, realizing that all our  friends and family do not necessarily share our angst about what is happening in the U.S.  However, we are sending this widely, regardless of one’s political party affiliation or beliefs.

 

Separating children (including babies) from their parents and incarcerating them violates America’s values.  This conjures up Nazi concentration camps and Japanese internment camps.  As morally repugnant as the Japanese internment camps were, children were not separated from their parents.

 

We MUST do something.

 

Many of us have been trying to figure out what to do that can be effective.  Some things are obvious:

 

  1. Contact our Congressional and Senatorial representatives
  2. Attend town halls
  3. VOTE
  4. Encourage everyone to vote
  5. Attend marches and demonstrations
  6. Donate to legal defense funds and other non-profit advocacy organizations
  7. Learn how to become a sanctuary home or a temporary foster parent

 

Re #4:  VOTE:  Shockingly, only 58% of Americans voted in the 2016 election.  We have heard too many people say, “I didn’t vote because I didn’t care for either candidate.”  We all demand and expect our rights.  With rights come responsibilities.  A major responsibility is to VOTE.  We must convince people that even if there is a situation where they do not like either candidate, they need to vote for the “least bad”.  We hear a lot about Russia, Comey, etc. affecting the election results.  Those who did not vote actually did make a choice with their inaction.

 

Re #5:  DEMONSTRATIONS:  Saturday, June 30 at noon there will be hundreds of marches across the U.S. protesting government forced separation of families.   You can click on this site and enter your zip code to find the march closest to you.

 

Families Belong Together—Attend a June 30 Event!

 

Re #6:  DONATE:  We have received lists of organizations that are helping separated migrant families.  We do not have personal knowledge of any of these but looked up each of the organizations listed by Adam Schiff, CNBC, and Daily Kos.

 

Of the approximately 30 organizations, only Texas Civil Rights Project is rated by CharityNavigator.org and it receives 4 stars.  (It is also recommended by CNBC and Daily Kos.)  You can look it up either under CharityNavigator.org or their website: texascivilrightsproject.org

 

RAICES (Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services) is listed but not yet rated by Charity Navigator.  It is recommended by CNBC and Adam Schiff and there is a Go Fund Me page that has raised about $15 million.  Their website is: Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, Inc. (San Antonio Central Office) – National Immigration Legal Services Directory – Nonprofit Resource Center

 

KIND (Kids in Need of Defense) is recommended by Daily Kos and Adam Schiff but I cannot find it on Charity Navigator.  Their mission is to provide legal representation for children.  Their website is: Kids in Need of Defense (Los Angeles Office) – National Immigration Legal Services Directory – Nonprofit Resource Center

 

Re #7: SANCTUARY HOME OR FOSTER HOME:  We do not know how to go about this but know that many people (including us) would like to offer their homes to help.  If anyone knows how to go about this, please advise.

 

Sincerely,

 

Joy and Len

We have often wondered if a new civil war would ever break out. If leftists would ever take to arms to defend their ideology, or if they would be too cowardly as many of us have surmised.

 

Well make no mistake about it folks, we are at war with a new, hyper-radicalized Democrat Party, aided and abetted by the Progressive Media. The Democrats, spurred on by their media masters, have done a political 180 over the last 20 years and now openly advocate anti-American views, and actively support policies that are completely destructive to our society and way of life.

 

Consider that every single Democrat voted against a tax break for the average American worker; they have opposed all efforts to secure our borders; they defy Federal immigration laws; they obstruct Federal law enforcement, they encourage and financially enrich our foreign enemies; they impose punitive regulations on our domestic businesses, they actively work towards destroying our energy independence; they defer to the World courts rather than our own judiciary; they actively promote domestic policies that disadvantage American citizens; and they harbor deep contempt for anyone who challenges their world views.

 

In other words, they are in the process of trying to demoralize and completely destroy traditional America, and we had all better wake up and realize this very sobering fact. Sowing discord? The Russians are amateurs compared to our progressive media.

Doctors: Gender confusion causes Child Abuse


Gay Agenda Brainwashing Children

I’m on the Gordon James Klingenschmitt (aka “Dr. Chaps”) email list. His emails are always informative but they nearly always come with a petition that has information on how to mass fax every single member of Congress. The catch to the mass fax is it will cost you thirty-five bucks. If I had an extra $35 to spare from my budget I would participate frequently. Even if the mass fax is a revenue fund raiser for Dr. Chaps, faxing all Congressmen is an excellent way to share your disposition toward a subject that needs legislation or needs legislation to be prevented. So if you have the same budget issues I have, take the Chaplain Klingenschmitt info and start your own petition. One place that is free is Change.org. (Or if you have another free petition platform or know of a petition pertaining to this subject, please share it in the comments.)

 

This email provides a “free” option toward the end that will send you to FaxCongress.org. There the wording focuses more on Senator Al Franken, Franken tried to push a promote-homosexuality agenda in the school system in 2010. Thank God Almighty that legislation failed. NOW President Obama is trying his typical unconstitutional path via the Federal Bureaucracy (The Federalist and WND) to force transgender/homosexual education in school education including the college level.

 

Here’s a quote from the free option petition in Dr. Chaps’ email:

 

This petition requests that you OPPOSE and FILIBUSTER the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, formerly known as “No Child Left Behind.” Specifically you must oppose Senator Tom Harkin’s (D-IA) addition of language proposed by Senator Al Franken (D-MN) that requires mandatory pro-homosexual lectures to all public school children, promoting sin under the disguise of bullying prevention. STOP THREATENING TO CUT FUNDING TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT WON’T PROMOTE HOMOSEXUALITY AS NORMAL. The legislation’s text promoting homosexuality begins on Page 694 of the massive school bill, over 1,150 pages.

Doctors confirm:  Gender confusion causes Child Abuse

Adults including parents who tell their sons to become daughters, and vice-versa, are abusive and harming their children, confirms a new study by the American College of Pediatricians.

“Facts – not ideology – determine reality,” the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) said in a warning to legislators and educators about the dangers of surgical and medical sex change operations to children.

“Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” the physicians said, “Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.”

The group, which aims at getting parents involved in their children’s health and education about health, said, “Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one,” and that, “A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.”

“To the contrary, the group maintained that human sexuality is a ‘binary trait’ and said the XY and XX chromosomes that determine female or male sex are “genetic markers of health” not “genetic markers of a disorder.”

“No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex,” the statement said.

“The American Academy of Pediatricians, the larger professional society from which the ACP broke away in 2002, has surgical and medical interventions in youth to suppress the hormones that naturally cause girls to grow into women and boys to men.”

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  Thank God the College says stop, but the Academy encourages child abuse?  This reminds me of Jesus’ quote in Matthew 18:6:  “If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”  We must oppose the so-called ‘transgender’ recruiting of minor children by abusers.]

Obama threatens Children:  Co-ed bathrooms or lose school funds

In a direct threat tantamount to child abuse, President Obama will issue a directive forcing all public schools to open girls bathrooms to confused boys, or lose their school funding.

The New York Times reports:  “The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.

“A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.

“It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.

“The move is certain to draw fresh criticism, particularly from Republicans, that the federal government is wading into local matters and imposing its own values on communities across the country that may not agree. It represents the latest example of the Obama administration using a combination of policies, lawsuits and public statements to change the civil rights landscape for gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people.

“After supporting the rights of gay people to marry, allowing them to serve openly in the military and prohibiting federal contractors from discriminating against them, the administration is wading into the battle over bathrooms and siding with transgender people.

 

“No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus,” John B. King Jr., the secretary of the Department of Education, said in a statement.

[Dr. Chaps’ comment:  Your children are in real danger from their government.  Obama is taking off the gloves, ready to force your little girls to share co-ed showers and locker rooms with confused boys.  It’s yet another reason to home-school your kids.  But then again, isn’t Congress (not the President) supposed to have power of the purse?]

Pro-Life Rally Will Call for Kamala Harris’ Resignation After She Raids David Daleiden’s Home


David Daleiden

David Daleiden

 

Last week I shared a CNSNews.com story about California State Attorney General Kamala Harris ordering and executing a search warrant of David Daleiden’s private residence fishing for more video footage of his exposé of the Planned Parenthood marketing of born alive then murdering babies for their anatomical body parts. Characteristically of America’s Left dominated justice system the courts actually went after Daleiden rather than the evils of Planned Parenthood breaking the law. Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted in Houston Texas under the Grand Jury guidance of another Left Wing Texas State Prosecutor Devon Anderson followed her corrupt Planned Parenthood connections.

 

 

Kamala Harris Dem Party

Kamala Harris – a Dem Political Hack

 

Kamala Harris’ search team absconded with previously unreleased video footage  of Planned Parenthood nefarious activities. You have to ask, “To what end was a search warrant issued since no indictment in California has occurred nor a stated reason for the search? Planned Parenthood was caught in extra-legal activities and they search Daleiden’s place.”

 

Why haven’t State and Federal authorities exhaustively investigated Planned Parenthood for trafficking organ parts taken from living individuals? Even to a Leftist, doesn’t an unborn baby become a legal living person if born alive? I believe abortion is murder, but for God’s sake aren’t all children after a live-birth a legal person with Constitutional protections under the rule of law? David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress team members that exposed this illegal practice should be given ticker-tape parades around the major cities of America. AND NOT PERSECUTED WITH PROSECUTION!

Pro-Life Rally Will Call for Kamala Harris’ Resignation After She Raids David Daleiden’s Home

Korrupt Kamala

LifeNews.com

 

After pro-abortion California Attorney General Kamala Harris stole unreleased video footage concerning Planned Parenthood during a raid on the home of David Daleiden, the director of the Center for Medical Progress, pro-life groups called for her resignation. Now they’re leading a rally at her office to continue that call.

 

California authorities seized a laptop and hard drives containing the video footage collected during Daleiden’s 3-year investigation of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, according to a written statement made by Life Legal Defense Foundation, which is helping to defend Daleiden.

 

Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, chose to focus her investigation on Daleiden and his associates rather than Planned Parenthood, even though the video footage so far released by Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress shows clear evidence that Planned Parenthood was illegally altering abortion procedures to endure intact organs targeted for harvesting then selling the organs for profit.

 

Since the California Department of Justice, under the leadership of Democratic State Attorney General Kamala Harris, searched the home of David Daleiden, there have been numerous news stories noting an apparent conflict of interest in Harris’ investigation of Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress that ignores obvious evidence of illegal conduct on the part of Planned Parenthood.

 

Planned Parenthood has donated $81,000 to Harris and, because of the massive conflict of interest, pro-life groups are calling for her resignation.

 

Now, pro-life groups are protesting at Harris’ office in Sacramento and Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America says pro-life students will be leading the way.

“Instead of standing for the preborn in California and investigating Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts, Kamala Harris has decided to stand with the abortion industry and has set out on a mission to hurt David and make an example out of him, to scare pro-lifers and other journalists into never questioning what goes on behind the closed and federally protected doors of Planned Parenthood,” she said. “It’s corrupt, despicable, and a threat to any pro-lifer or citizen journalist out there who wants to expose truth.”

 

“We have to show the national media and the state of California that our movement stands with David, now more than ever, and we aren’t going to let their corrupt officials get away with it,” Hawkins said. “And this standing for David needs to be more than a Facebook post or petition. We need to be there in person, showing Kamala Harris that we aren’t afraid of her or her cronies at Planned Parenthood.”

 

“We are going to fill a bus today with students from Students for Life groups all over the Northwest. They are going to drive through the night and arrive in Sacramento tomorrow, Wednesday, April 13th,” she added. “At 11am on April 13th, the pro-life generation is going to stand in front of the Attorney General’s office and demand that she resign immediately.

 

Brian Johnston of California Pro-Life Council joined in criticizing Harris.

 

“Last year, David Daleiden’s videos of Planned Parenthood officials arranging the sale of human organs from aborted children stunned the world. While seven other state’s Attorneys General launched investigations into the PP actions in their states our state’s ‘top cop’ decided to do the opposite,” he said.

 

“She ignored PP’s macabre actions and instead decided to pursue and silence the investigator! At that time we knew of at least several sizable-political donations directly from PP to Harris. Since then more than $80,000 of PP political donations to the AG have been revealed. Her campaign web-site even includes a ‘petition of support’ for Planned Parenthood,” he added.

 

Johnson is also supporting the rally: “On Weds. April 13 there will be a rally and demonstration in front of the AG’s Sacramento office protesting the heavy-handed use of government powers for the political purposes of this campaigning, abortion ideologue.”

Trump’s Fluctuating Loyalty


Justin Smith provides many legitimate reasons why Conservatives should think twice before committing to a Trump nomination for POTUS. The thing is I don’t believe Trump has become popular among Republican voters because of his ideology. The Donald has become representative of American Conservative and Independent displeasure with the business as usual politics exacted by Leftist Dems and Establishment Republicans.

I will not be voting for Donald Trump in my Oklahoma Primary. However if he did win the GOP nomination I would vote for him because he would shake up the way things operate in Washington DC. Trump will manage the Executive Branch as a CEO manages a major corporation. I have no doubts that government management will step on the toes of Leftists and Conservatives alike.

I doubt Trump will change any social issues dear to Conservatives but I suspect he will not add to the Leftist view of social issues. On money management of America’s economy I believe Trump will ignore all the utopian Leftist agendas. On the other hand it will remain to be seen if he cuts Big Government unless he views the operations of pork programs are not profitable.

I think you see my point without me competing with Justin’s thoughts which AGAIN are very legitimate concerns.

Trump’s Fluctuating Loyalty

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 10/17/2015 1:37 PM

Americans must not entrust the future of these United States to Donald Trump, despite his accurate assessment concerning the illegal immigration, economic and trade deficit problems. Trump is politically confused, lacking core principled moral values and integrity; and, he is a master of corruption in U.S. politics, who has admittedly bought politicians to increase his own wealth. Trump is no friend to the U.S. Constitution, and rather than being America’s salvation, a President Trump will only serve to the greater detriment of America.

Trump’s disdain for the Bill of Rights and individual liberty is readily apparent, when one reviews his attempts to steal private property for his own use through the misuse of eminent domain. Trump colluded with New Jersey’s Casino Reinvestment Development Authority in 1994 to forcibly remove Vera Coking from her land, valued at over $1 million, and “compensate” her only $251,000; righteously, Coking beat them in court. And in 2005, Trump told Neil Cavuto (Fox News) that he fully agreed with the Supreme Court’s 2005 ‘Kelo decision’, which legitimized this sort of government-abetted theft of private property.

Although Trump attempts to equate his midnight conversion to conservatism to President Ronald Reagan leaving the Democratic Party for the GOP, Trump has changed party affiliation from Republican to Independent to Democrat and back to Republican in a matter of two decades, just in time for the Iowa caucuses. Please note, Reagan’s core values never shifted away from a strong pro-life and pro-Second Amendment position in the way Trump’s values shift much like the changing of one’s underwear from day to day, depending on his own personal agenda and who has his ear at the moment.

While Trump now says that “gun and magazine bans are a total failure” and presents himself as pro-2nd Amendment, he supported a ban on semi-automatic “assault weapons” and thirty round magazines as late as 2009 (note: A car or hammer can be an “assault weapon” too). His current acceptance of limited restrictions for gun ownership highlights his fundamentally flawed view of the 2nd Amendment, which reads “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

In 1999, Trump was interviewed by ‘Meet the Press’ when he was considering running for president, under Ross Perot’s reform Party. When asked if he would ban partial-birth abortion, he answered: “No I would not. I am pro-choice in every respect as far as it goes, but I just hate it.” And now, Trump is supposedly “pro-life”, probably in the same manner that Obama supported the Defense of Marriage Act until he did not.

Who in their right minds can wholeheartedly support Trump, when he was a Democrat, making massive donations to the likes of Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons and John Kerry and supporting the very “socialist/communist” views of that party as late as 2004 — the very “socialist/communist” views he now rails against?

Who is going to be fool enough to actually cast their vote for Trump, once they know that he supported John Kerry — a communist and islamofascist sympathizer — for president in 2004?

In 2007, Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that it “was a shame that race was lost”, as he talked about John Kerry’s and John Edward’s bid to take the White House for the Progressive Democrats. Trump elaborated with “I’m so upset that he [Kerry] blew it.”

Trump further exhibited his ignorance, his lack of reasoning and logic and his willingness to jump on the bandwagon behind any idea that appealed to his own fallacious beliefs in 2008, when he praised then Speaker Nancy Pelosi for attacking President Bush for getting the U.S. “into the war [Iraq] with lies.” Trump bought the Progressive talking points hook-line-and sinker and completely ignored the fact that even most of the Democratic Caucus, including Senator Hillary Clinton, supported President Bush’s action based on the very same intelligence — the only intelligence — that they and Bush had been given by U.S. and allied intelligence organizations.

In August 2015, Carly Fiorina, GOP presidential candidate, explained that Trump has tapped into America’s legitimate frustration, however, Fiorina concluded with this thought: “I would say this. Since he has changed his mind on amnesty, on healthcare and on abortion, I would ask, what are the principles by which he will govern?”

President Reagan’s son, Michael, recently told ‘Politifact’ that Donald Trump is the candidate who is least like Ronald Reagan. He countered Trump’s August assertion that he had a strong relationship with President Reagan by asking “exactly how many state dinners [was Trump] invited to?” Michael Reagan also suggested that Trump could not win the national election.

With Trump still giving the Clinton Foundation money in 2015, can YOU honestly say that you would trust Trump to govern the United States in an honest and constitutionally acceptable manner? Even though a President Trump may reduce the Depts. of Education and the EPA, America is quite likely to witness Big Government expand in other sectors, more crony-capitalism/corruption and an ingrained oligarchy and the further abuse of our U.S. Constitution.

Even though everyone learns new information throughout their lifetime, it usually only leads them to minor shifts in their core beliefs by the time they are well past their thirties, but Donald Trump has shown a pathological desire to change quite often between two most divergent political philosophies — the conservative belief of freedom under the law and the progressive belief that control is better than freedom. America does not need anyone in the White House who has shown such uncertainty in what they truly believe and hold most dear in their heart of hearts.

Aside from all of this, I cannot in good conscience vote for a person to be our U.S. President, who thinks “bigly” is a word and cannot quote a single verse from his “favorite book”, the Bible, when pressed to do so.

America needs an intelligent, knowledgeable Constitutional conservative, who will defend our religious freedom and the First Amendment, along with an equally forceful defense of the entire Bill of Rights, rather than the closet Progressive Trump and his convoluted understanding of the U.S. Constitution. America needs a man or woman, who is confident enough in their sense of righteous purpose to forcefully defend America and Her allies in the cause of Liberty — someone guided philosophically by the likes of Barry Goldwater, William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan. America needs a patriot, who recognizes our nation’s promise and the potential for opportunity that still remains, found in conservative principles, and, they will know that “In God We Trust” gives us hope and courage and moves the entire country towards greater prosperity and success.

MAF – Stop Obama’s Iran Deal!


Move America Forward (MAF) and a number of Conservative websites and Conservative fund raisers are promoting what is billed as a David Zucker ad lambasting the Iran Nuke Deal pushed by President Barack Hussein Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry. The ad parody is quite humorous and only a minute and a half or so long.

I have no doubt many Conservatives and Conservative organization will use the anti-Iran Nuke Deal parody as a fund raiser. Whether or not any particular organization is actually fronting money for paid ad time is irrelevant. This parody is truth in ironic smiles. In the case of MAF, this organization does great work in taking care of our military men and women fighting Islamic terrorists and defending the USA in general overseas with essential needs care packages. MAF is a worthy organization to donate toward.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE HEARD Obama/Kerry’s nefarious selling out America and Israel is a done deal. It is worthy to resist right up to any Congressional votes against the deal or any veto override votes that will take place. Even after the obvious damage to our National Security occurs, our American dislike will make it easier for the next President of the United States of America to undo Obama’s Executive Order by-passing the Constitution’s Treaty process.

New Anti-Iran Nuclear Deal Ad “Side Effects”!
We need your help to spread the word

We are continuing the fight against President Obama’s suicidal Nuclear deal with Iran. The latest phase is now underway, as we are partnering with our friends at IranSideEffects.Com who have just come out with a new ad directed by famed Hollywood comedic director David Zucker (Airplane, The Naked Gun, An American Carol.)

The new ad aims to break through the traditional political chatter and offer a fresh view on Obama’s Iran deal by using Zucker’s satire skills to show how the “side effects” of Obama’s Iran deal are too much of a bitter pill to swallow.

Hollywood comedy legend David Zucker (“Airplane,” “Scary Movie,” “Naked Gun” films among many others) has written and produced this hilarious spoof on the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal. In his trademark style, Zucker skewers the deal’s primary architects – President Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry warns of the possible “Side Effects” that may result from the absurd agreement.]

 

This is a bad-to-worse deal that we MUST STOP. The Iranian deal represents a monumental shift in foreign policy and it’s a gamble that could go down in history as the single greatest national security blunder ever made by an American President.

Obama’s deal with Iran is dangerous and must be stopped! Here are just some of the negative “side effects”

Removes all the economic sanctions that forced Iran to the negotiating table in the first place
Gives $150 billion in cash assistance and from freeing up frozen Iranian assets to Iran’s extremist government.
No stipulations on how funds are spent. Iran will be able to sponsor more terror attacks through groups they support and fund.
Iran provides their own inspectors to monitor their own facilities and they choose which samples to provide.
International inspectors have no access to Iran’s military facilities which could hide nuclear material.
Iran can delay any scheduled inspections for up to 24 days, plenty of time to hide incriminating evidence.
No plan is in place to re-impose sanctions if Iran does not comply with their end of the bargain.
US is forced to “…strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against and respond to nuclear security threats including sabotage…”

(quoted directly from the Iran-Obama Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action)

Los Angeles – Hollywood legend David Zucker (“Airplane,” “Scary Movie,” “Naked Gun” films, among many other others) a new video that spoofs the Iran Nuclear Deal and its primary architects – President Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. Zucker’s latest political piece warns of the “Side Effects” that surely could result from the absurd agreement opposed by congressional majorities and a majority of Americans.

“While the President, Secretary Kerry and Hillary Clinton are committed to this deal long term, even with clear majorities of Americans and members of Congress opposing it, it’s time to focus on the side effects we’ll experience as a result” said Zucker. “There’s no shortage of serious ads explaining how horrible the deal is, so maybe injecting some satire will engage a broader audience and ensure the leadership allowing this deal to happen is held responsible for the inevitable dangerous side effects.”

The Zucker piece entitled, “Side Effects” spoofs the popular prescription drug advertisement formats which include a litany of possible drug side effects. Vision for America (VFA) is releasing the video as part of a national advocacy effort to highlight misguided efforts of Democrat leaders and their policies. VFA will ensure public awareness of the negative side effects of the deal and drive national policies and leadership in a safer, more secure direction in 2016.

See the video at IranSideEffects.com.

“We are proud to work with David on this important issue while looking for smarter, more engaging ways to build wider public support for conservative policies and leadership” said Eric Beach, Executive Director VFA. “We share David’s view that humor and satire are rare in today’s hyper-negative political environment, and we look forward to build on this effort, which will ensure a broader audience engages in these important national issue debates in 2016 and beyond.”

David Zucker is an American film director, producer and screenwriter. A master of parody comedies, Zucker wrote and directed the critically acclaimed “Airplane!” film, created “The Naked Gun” franchise, and helped create many other fan favorites such as “Ruthless People”, “Scary Movie 3 and 4”, “Top Secret” and “BASEketball”.

UANI Chairman Senator Joseph Lieberman WaPo Op-ed on Iran Deal


Joe Lieberman is a former Senator from Connecticut and was the 2000 Democrat Party nominee for Vice President. In his last Senatorial election the Dem Party dumped him for a younger guy. Lieberman did not appreciate the lack of support so ran as an Independent and won re-election. On August 14 Joe Lieberman wrote a very logical yet scathing denunciation of Obama and Kerry’s Iran Nuke Deal. It is worth the read.

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) Chairman Joseph I. Lieberman, former U.S. Senator from Connecticut, called on Congress to reject the Iran agreement in an op-ed published Friday, August 14 in The Washington Post.

Congress Should Step Up to Block This Terrible Iran Agreement

By Joseph I. Lieberman
The Washington Post
August 14, 2015

As debate intensifies over the nuclear agreement reached with Iran, the Obama administration has sought to deflect criticism by arguing that there is no alternative to the current framework, no matter what its flaws, and that its rejection by Congress is guaranteed to produce catastrophe – isolating the United States from its allies and destroying any prospect for a diplomatic settlement. A vote against its preferred policy, the administration has argued (not for the first time), is a vote for war.

The administration has used these same arguments before to try to stop Congress from imposing economic sanctions on Iran. Not only did the predictions of catastrophe fail to deter Congress from moving ahead but also, when the sanctions were adopted, the doomsday forecasts were proven wrong – just as the current predictions will be. And when the scare tactics failed and the vote count in Congress started to turn heavily against its position, the White House changed course – just as it can and should now.

I was a member of the Senate when, between 2009 and 2012, Congress developed a series of bills that dramatically increased pressure on Tehran for its illicit nuclear activities, including adopting a measure in late 2011 that effectively banned Iran from selling oil – its economic lifeblood – on international markets. In every case, senior Obama administration officials worked to block congressional efforts, warning that they were unnecessary, counterproductive and even dangerous.

Much like today, the White House repeatedly argued that sanctions would isolate the United States and alienate our allies whose help we needed. In the case of the oil ban, a Cabinet member bluntly told members that adopting the measure risked torpedoing the global economic recovery.

These predictions proved false. In fact, it was only because of the sanctions adopted by Congress, and ultimately signed by President Obama, that sufficient economic pressure was put on the Iranian government that its leaders came to the negotiating table – a truth the Obama administration now accepts and asserts. Our allies and partners did not always welcome new restrictions on doing business in Tehran, but in the end, they decided it was more important to do business in the United States.

It is important for members of Congress deciding how to vote on the current proposal to consider this history because it reminds us of the administration’s past misguided efforts to stop, slow or weaken sanctions bills. Equally important, recent legislative history tells us that as bipartisan congressional support for these bills began to snowball, the White House shifted its position.

At first, members of Congress – particularly Democrats – were warned not to do anything. But as the administration began to see the votes slipping from its grip, it changed tack and started negotiating the timing and scope of the prospective new law.

Indeed, the same drama played out just a few months ago, as Congress debated whether it should review the then-impending nuclear agreement.

Here too, the White House insisted that requiring legislative review and approval of a nuclear agreement with Iran was obstructive and damaging. But when Democrats began to support the legislation, and it was clear that a strong bipartisan coalition was converging around the idea, the administration withdrew its opposition and the president signed the legislation. The current congressional review is the result.

Congress should keep this experience in mind as it reviews the nuclear agreement with Iran. While the White House predictably is trying to scaremonger Capitol Hill into taking no action, experience and common sense suggest that the reality after congressional rejection is likely to be quite different. In the aftermath of Sen. Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) principled and courageous stand against the proposed agreement, the prospects for such a bipartisan rejection seem increasingly likely.

If a bipartisan supermajority does in fact begin to cohere in criticism of the undeniable loopholes and inadequacies of the agreement, it is likely the administration will adjust its position. Provisions that today are impossible to change will become subject to renegotiation and clarification.

The best chance for a better deal, in other words, is overwhelming bipartisan pressure from Capitol Hill about the need for one, rather than acquiescing to the Obama administration’s claim that this is the best agreement possible because Iran will go no further.

That conclusion overlooks two truths: First, the Iranians are historically capable of adjusting positions they have claimed were immovable to new political realities, and, second, Iran, because of its depleted economy, needs an agreement much more than we do. Congress has the power now to act on these two realities.

This is an initiative, moreover, that many of our friends and partners are likely to welcome. Certainly the countries most affected by the deal – Israel and the Gulf Arab states – have made no secret of their dismay at the concessions granted to the Iranians in the quest for a settlement. Reportedly, even some of our European allies may not be wholly displeased by some congressional push-back – even if not all of them admit so publicly.

Not so long ago, everyone agreed that no deal with Iran was better than a bad deal. Now, the administration has changed the standard to whether it is possible to get a better deal than the flawed one it got in Vienna. History suggests it is – but we will never know unless a bipartisan super-majority comes together to demand it.

Obama, Hillary, et al – Nefarious Intentions


John R. Houk

© July 10, 2015

Remember Lois Lerner, the persecutor of Tea Party organizations and Conservative if they opposed the Obama agenda? Katie Pavlich gleaned some info from Judicial Watch that demonstrates that Lerner (as in the IRS) and the Department of Justice (as in – at the time – Obama’s buddy and confidante Attorney General Eric Holder) actually conspired to take out criminal action against any organization opposed to Barack Hussein Obama.

If you are a true American and purport to be a Democratic Party supporter, here is a good reason to at least write your Senator and District Representative to urge prosecution for these kinds of political dirty tricks. These kind of antics definitely the qualifications for Impeachment under the categories of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Trust me, if you the Constitution, what qualifies as an impeachable Misdemeanor is quite broad under the Original Intent of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution.

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.ARTICLE II, SECTION 4 (Standards for Impeachment; The Heritage Guide to The Constitution)

From the Wall Street Journal:

On one end of the debate, Roger Sherman believed that a president should be removed “at [the] pleasure” of Congress. Likewise, George Mason offered the standard of “maladministration.” At the other end of the debate, Charles Pinckney suggested that a president should not be subject to impeachment for any offense. Other delegates used vague language that only fuels the modern debate as to their true intentions. James Madison objected to a standard of “maladministration” as too ambiguous but he also stated that impeachment was a necessary precaution against “the incapacity, negligence or perfidy of the chief Magistrate.” For his part, Alexander Hamilton referred to impeachable offenses as “those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, for the abuse or violation of some public trust.”

Franklin viewed impeachment as a process by which public concerns over presidential misconduct could be resolved and the legitimacy of a presidency restored. He noted that there are times when a president’s conduct is viewed as “obnoxious” and demands a process of public review and decision. The impeachment process, he concluded, is “the best way . . . to provide in the Constitution for the regular punishment of the Executive when his misconduct should deserve it, and for his honorable acquittal when he should be unjustly accused.” (High Crimes and Misdemeanors, According to the Framers; Jonathan Turley; WSJ; Updated 11/9/98 12:01 a.m. ET)

As a Conservative my sense is Obama and many of the cohorts of his Administration probably have treasonous acts that may never be proven as a high crime. However, maladministration and malicious acts are very provable. The only hindrance are the Democrats of the House – in impeachment proceedings – and in the Senate doing their due diligence for their constituents and the Constitution – in convicting for malicious acts that may fall more under Misdemeanors than High Crimes.

The focus of this post is Hillary Clinton – the current favorite to win the Dem Party nomination for POTUS, but President Barack Hussein Obama is certainly has had unclean hands from his 2008 election campaign through to the present. His campaign was full of image lies portraying to Americans he was the epitome of hope and change. The reality was and still is a connection to Marxist idealism (HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) and the racism involve with Black Liberation Theology (HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE) . This reality includes a host of Marxist mentors and admirations on the Leftist side and a load of hate-Whitey BLT supremacists.

Impeach the Leftist cronies, Prosecute them or both.

New Documents Show Extensive Collaboration Between IRS, DOJ to Criminally Prosecute Conservative Groups

By Katie Pavlich

July 07, 2015

Townhall.com

Last year emails revealed former IRS official Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice Criminal Division about criminally prosecuting conservative tea party groups for pursuing political activity (opposed to President Obama’s agenda) by “posing” as non-profit organizations.

Now, new documents obtained by government watchdog Judicial Watch through two different Freedom of Information Act lawsuits show extensive collaboration between the IRS and DOJ (and subsequently the FBI) to go after conservative groups with criminal charges. The IRS likely violated federal law by illegally sharing 1.25 million pages of taxpayer information with DOJ, which were contained on nearly two dozen FBI backup tapes. Further, information shows DOJ wanted IRS officials who were scheduled to testify in front of Congress about the targeting scandal to turn over planned remarks to them first before delivering on Capitol Hill. From JW:

Judicial Watch today released new Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents that include an official “DOJ Recap” report detailing an October 2010 meeting between Lois Lerner, DOJ officials and the FBI to plan for the possible criminal prosecution of targeted nonprofit organizations for alleged illegal political activity.

The newly obtained records also reveal that the Obama DOJ wanted IRS employees who were going to testify to Congress to turn over documents to the DOJ before giving them to Congress. Records also detail how the Obama IRS gave the FBI 21 computer disks, containing 1.25 million pages of confidential IRS returns from 113,000 nonprofit social 501(c)(4) welfare groups – or nearly every 501(c)(4) in the United States – as part of its prosecution effort. According to a letter from then-House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “This revelation likely means that the IRS – including possibly Lois Lerner – violated federal tax law by transmitting this information to the Justice Department.”

But the IRS wasn’t simply sending the DOJ information, Lerner herself was meeting with DOJ officials to discuss pursuing criminal charges.

On October 8, 2010, Lois Lerner, Joe Urban [IRS Technical Advisor, TEGE], Judy Kindell [top aide to Lerner], Justin Lowe [Technical Advisor to the Commissioner of Tax-Exempt and Government Entities], and Siri Buller met with the section chief and other attorneys from the Department of Justice Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section, and one representative from the FBI, to discuss recent attention to the political activity of exempt organizations.

The section’s attorneys expressed concern that certain section 501(c) organizations are actually political committees “posing” as if they are not subject to FEC law, and therefore may be subject to criminal liability. The attorneys mentioned several possible theories to bring criminal charges under FEC law

Keep in mind Lerner previously and essentially stated in an email that at least one conservative group needed to be made a public example with prosecution.

“One IRS prosecution would make an impact and they wouldn’t feel so comfortable doing the stuff,” Lerner said in a 2013 email.

The goal was to stop the flow of other conservative non-profits, opposed to President Obama’s agenda, from applying for tax exempt status and therefore becoming more effective.

“These new documents show that the Obama IRS scandal is also an Obama DOJ and FBI scandal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “The FBI and Justice Department worked with Lois Lerner and the IRS to concoct some reason to put President Obama’s opponents in jail before his reelection. And this abuse resulted in the FBI’s illegally obtaining confidential taxpayer information. How can the Justice Department and FBI investigate the very scandal in which they are implicated?”

It’s no wonder Lerner’s hard drive magically “crashed,” “losing” thousands of emails sent and received during the time period when she was meeting with DOJ to pursue prosecution of American citizens exercising their constitutional right to free speech.

Calls grow for probe of Clinton’s private server


Hillary Clinton: This is the gal that currently leads the Dems for the 2016 nomination for POTUS. How crazy is any portion of the American electorate to trust this woman with the security, safety and prosperity of the United States of America? If she actually wins the Dem nomination will American voters replace one Liar-in-Chief for another?

Calls grow for probe of Clinton’s private server

By SARAH WESTWOOD

JUNE 27, 2015 | 12:01 AM

Washington Examiner

Calls for Hillary Clinton to allow a third party to examine her private server grew louder Friday following revelations that she had withheld more than a dozen Benghazi-related emails from the State Department.

“Secretary Clinton’s failure to turn over all Benghazi and Libya documents is the reason why we have been calling for an independent, third party review of her server,” Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga., a member of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, told the Washington Examiner.

“Her unusual email arrangement with herself allowed for Secretary Clinton to pick and choose which emails she deemed work related, and now we know that she failed to be honest and forthcoming with those emails to both the Select Committee and the State Department that were subpoenaed,” Westmoreland added.

A State Department spokesman said Friday the agency had no plans to launch a probe of Clinton’s private server, on which she hosted both her personal and work-related emails.

But officials did acknowledge that they had no idea whether Clinton submitted all of her work-related emails, as she has claimed to have done.

“This confirms doubts about the completeness of Clinton’s self-selected public record and raises serious questions about her decision to erase her personal server — especially before it could be analyzed by an independent, neutral third party arbiter,” Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the select committee, said Thursday evening.

Renewed scrutiny of Clinton’s private email use bubbled up this week after it became clear that Blumenthal had given Congress 60 emails that the State Department never provided.

The agency admitted Thursday it could not locate all or part of 15 of those messages.

“[Clinton] said she had ‘confidence’ that all relevant emails from her secret server were handed over,” Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, said Friday.

“But now there is proof that she wasn’t telling the truth. This is yet another reason she can’t be trusted,” Priebus said. “And it’s yet another reason that her server has to be turned about to an independent arbiter — to see if anything can be recovered after she wiped it.”

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said the only way to ensure the State Department has a complete record of Clinton’s emails is to locate and search the private server she used as secretary.

“This is something we’re raising now with the courts in a variety of cases,” Fitton said, noting that State has resisted calls to seek out the server.

Judicial Watch has filed more than 20 requests through the Freedom of Information Act for records related to the Clinton email scandal.

“There is nothing in the history of the Freedom of Information Act or in the history of the Federal Records Act to compare with Mrs. Clinton’s decision to use a secret account to conduct her government business, and have other agency officials use that as well,” Fitton said.

“There was a whole cadre of State Department officials who went dark and were conducting government business in such a way that made it immune to scrutiny,” he added.

Gowdy has blasted the State Department for what he perceives as its reluctance to comply with congressional requests for Benghazi-related documents.

State Department officials have countered that the select committee’s ever-widening requests have drained resources and resulted in the possibility of documents falling through the cracks.

“The State Department also turned over a new set of Clinton emails that were responsive to previous committee requests regarding Libya and Benghazi, but for some reason were not previously given to the committee under subpoena,” Gowdy noted Thursday.

A State Department spokesperson told the Examiner the “new set of Clinton emails” provided to the committee were all the records in their possession that matched those submitted by Blumenthal earlier this month.

“These revelations raise questions that the committee will now be considering carefully in the days ahead,” Gowdy said, suggesting the committee may take additional action to ensure it obtains all of Clinton’s Benghazi-related emails.

Justin Smith Comments on TPP/TPA


By Justin O. Smith

Editor and Intro by John R. Houk

© June 12, 2015

I have to admit I dislike being in agreement with Democrats who thanks to Barack Hussein Obama are usually utopian Leftists out to ignore the Original Intent of the Constitution and the Christian values that are as much a part of our American heritage as is Liberty. I am in agreement with the Dems that are against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA).

As I wrote June 8th the Dems are against TPP and related agreements because the Unions are against it. The Conservatives that are the multitudinous of acronyms are due to the potential to abuse our national sovereignty, immigration at the will of the Executive Branch and various yet disputed economic reasons.

A large chunk of Republicans are for the TPP/TPA due to the disputes over the economic affects which the Establishment GOP believes will strengthen the American economy. I found it disturbing that self-described Speaker Boehner was urging the Fast Tracking of this legislation that would have in reality meant an increase of discretionary power for scandal plague President Barack Hussein Obama and his equally scandalous Administration.

As I was typing this I heard on Fox News’ Cavuto that the Dems and thankfully enough Republicans united to shoot down TPP/TPA. In light of the three comments which I edited into one post from Justin Smith who gives good reasons what the threat of TPP/TPA is. Justin Smith comments to the SlantRight 2.0 post “Are YOU going to Allow the House to Fast-Track TPP” on the Facebook group America’s Party.

But for clarities sake here’s a somewhat neutral description in the summary of a PDF publication I found:

Legislation to reauthorize Trade Promotion Authority (“TPA”), sometimes called “fast track,” was introduced as the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (TPA- 2015; H.R. 1890/S. 995) on April 16, 2015. The legislation was reported by the Senate Finance Committee on April 22, 2015, and by the House Ways and Means Committee the next day. TPA, as incorporated into H.R. 1314 by substitute amendment, passed the Senate on May 22 by a vote of 62-37. The previous grant of authority expired on July 1, 2007.

TPA is the process Congress has made available to the President to enable legislation to approve and implement certain international trade agreements to be considered under expedited legislative procedures for limited periods, provided the President observes certain statutory obligations. TPA defines how Congress has chosen to exercise its constitutional authority over a particular aspect of trade policy, while giving the President added leverage to negotiate trade agreements by effectively assuring U.S. trade partners that final agreements will be given timely and unamended consideration. On July 30, 2013, President Obama first publicly requested that Congress reauthorize TPA, and he reiterated his request for TPA in his January 20, 2015, State of the Union address. Legislation to renew TPA was introduced in the 113th Congress (H.R. 3830) (S. 1900), but it was not acted upon.

TPA reflects decades of debate, cooperation, and compromise between Congress and the executive branch in finding a pragmatic accommodation to the exercise of each branch’s respective authorities over trade policy. The expedited legislative procedures have not changed since first codified in the Trade Act of 1974 (P.L. 93-618). Congress, however, has required that the authority to use TPA be periodically reauthorized, and at times has chosen to revise trade negotiation objectives, the consultative mechanism, and presidential notification requirements. While early versions of fast track/TPA received bipartisan support, later renewal efforts have been more controversial, culminating in a more partisan vote on the 2002 TPA renewal. Future debates on TPA renewal may center on trade negotiation objectives, congressional oversight of trade negotiations, trade agreement enforcement, and clarifying the congressional authority over approval of reciprocal trade agreements and trade policy more generally, among others.

TPA renewal may become a more pressing issue in the 114th Congress because current trade negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) are in progress. Technically, TPA is not necessary to begin or even conclude trade negotiations, but it is widely understood to be a key element of defining congressional authority, and of passing trade agreement implementing legislation. Therefore, its renewal can be construed as signaling serious congressional support for moving ahead with trade negotiations. Addressing congressional concerns over the definition and operation of TPA may be a central part of the debate.

Although there appears to be support for renewal of TPA in Congress, the details of the legislation are likely to be subject to considerable debate, including the specific treatment of any related TAA program reauthorization. This report presents background and analysis on the development of TPA, a summary of the major provisions under the expired authority, and a discussion of the issues that have arisen in the debate over TPA renewal. It also explores some of the policy options available to Congress. (Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and the Role of Congress in Trade Policy; By Ian F. Fergusson – Specialist in International Trade and Finance; Congressional Research Service via Fas.org; 5/28/15)

Here is an important background Breitbart read which includes a WikiLeaks document dump link on the subject of TPP/TPA immigration rules that were secretive or at least until WikiLeaks got a hold of it:

TPP is my line in the sand John. If our government sees fit to go along with what essentially amounts to global fascism/corporatism and nations giving up their sovereignty to be governed by the world’s corporations, it will be a watershed moment — it should be an epiphany to all Americans who love freedom and liberty that they are not truly represented any longer — and it should mark the day they arm themselves in preparation for an all out revolution.

The hell of it is that only 5 Republicans in the Senate voted against fast tracking this, along with 16 Democrats. It should be interesting to see how the House votes on this.

Republicans want this because they are under the delusion that it will grow the economy and provide cheap labor as well as decrease the trade deficit, all of which are wrong for too many reasons to detail here. And the Dems, except those like Bernie Sanders who actually seems to really care about America’s well-being, see this as finally setting precedents that will push the U.S. and other nations into an organization that will have enforcement capabilities regarding its rules and “laws” in a way that supersedes U.S. law.

Research it for Yourselves — the TPP will not bode well for America in any way, shape or form and destroys a large segment of U.S. sovereignty, as well as the sovereignty of all the other nations that sign on to it. Think of it as a supersized, new sort of union modeled after the EU.

TPP also opens the door for international tribunals to modify our laws on immigration and healthcare to conform with “international norms” and it has very little to do with actual trade between nations. This is global governance moving ahead at warp speed.

We’re rapidly approaching a point where an armed response may be the only thing that these fascist fools in the government understand. How long and how far do YOU let YOUR own government push YOU — taking away YOUR liberty and trampling on YOUR rights — before YOU stand and say “No More” and back it up with a rifle in YOUR hand? How long do YOU go through years of court battles that should never have been waged in the first place, because of an ever consistent and insistent advance against OUR Bill of Rights by the marxofascist Progressives, the corporatists and RINOs in government?

These bastards are trampling on the U.S. Constitution and the representative Republic daily. Just how much more are any of YOU willing to take?

To hell with “peaceful protest” — we’ve seen just how well that works these days. The Progressives have turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to it. At the very least, it is time to refuse to obey and comply with any “law” we know to be outside the Constitution and the Bill of Rights — to engage in the most forceful and powerful civil disobedience We can — and to show an armed mass of patriots on the steps of the Capitol in DC if it should prove necessary.

Go to exhibit a force of will and a preparedness to fight, not to start a revolution, but to impress upon the government just how far WE believe they have overreached their authority. If a revolution starts, let it start because they fired the first shot after causing the American people to have a hundred grievances against them already.

Tom Hoefling No need for armed revolution. All we need is for conservatives to stop supporting traitors. June 8 at 9:06pm

Tom Hoefling — 49 members of the Senate GOP showed themselves to be traitors to America on May 21st when they voted for Trade Promotion Authority fast-track for the Trans Pacific Partnership. There are fascists running rampant throughout both parties, and this TPA and TPP are fascism anyway one cuts it and anti-American through and through, no matter their reasoning for supporting it.

I fear the GOP can only see the almighty dollar sign and cheap labor, no matter that it will expand trade deficits and bring untold harm to our economy as it destroys U.S. jobs, despite assurances to the contrary advancing the lie that herein lies “prosperity for all.”

This TPA and TPP is a direct assault on the integrity of U.S. Sovereignty and the U.S. Constitution as it initiates international tribunals that will be poised and in place in order to implement measures that will supersede U.S. law — regarding immigration and healthcare specifically.

Please show me a conservative Tom Hoefling. There are 33 American Patriots in the Senate who voted “NO” on this deal. Tomorrow will delineate the Patriots from the Traitors in Congress, if the TPA makes it to the floor.

Ordinarily I’d agree with YOUR simplistic assessment, but the political atmosphere has so shifted in America that one can no longer tell a true conservative from a pretender, because so many will say and do anything in order to perpetuate their own power.

In the end, it does come down to the moral character of those We elect and fully vetting them properly to ensure that they do stand for God, the Constitution and the Republic and Our Beloved America’s traditions, Exceptionalism and Heritage — as expressed by the Founders through their Judeo-Christian beliefs and their Original Intent as presented in the Federalist Papers and other writings, such as Locke’s treatise on Government.

No Tom Hoefling — when You have half the nation subscribing to a foreign/European ideology of Marxism/fascism and attempting to tear apart the foundations upon which Our nation was built — working outside Constitutionally accepted means in order to succeed — You have a group of people who may be American by birth but who are anything but American in their purpose and intent for the nation and who are the Enemy From Within that I swore an oath to fight against in defense of the Constitution and Our Beloved America in September 1977.

These marxofascist bastards are American in name only and are pursuing the ends justifies the means as they attempt to abrogate the U.S. Constitution and take America into “a new age” of a “post-Constitutional America” in which the people serve the State rather than the State serving the people. And their redistribution policies in this context – the TPA/TPP – will redistribute U.S. wealth worldwide and reduce our own personal prosperity and economic freedom to a shambles, which in turn will reduce individual liberty across the nation.

If We cannot elect Statesmen grounded in God, Family and Country in the next election -2016, as well as good, decent, moral and true conservatives, then the nation will see an increase in strife and social upheavals, eventually culminating in near civil war — most likely an all-out Civil War.

I cannot see strong willed and strong-minded Sons and Daughters sitting by idly as Progressive Fascists reduce US all to the lowest common denominator in poverty under their Utopian Statist Hell, especially when there is not any real political solution. One does not “compromise” with the very Evil that intends to destroy everything one loves about one’s nation. One destroys that Evil totally and completely. Civil War is coming whether anyone wishes to face it or not — too many takers live here with outreached hands and an unwillingness to accept responsibility for their own failures.
