UN Arms Trade Treaty

A lot of fear-mongers are claiming the UN Arms Trade Treaty “takes effect” today (Christmas Eve).  In fact, this “treaty” has UN Arms Trade Treatyabsolutely zero effect on our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Here’s why:

1.  Our Constitution mandates treaties adhere to a simple yet rigorous legislative and governmental process.  No matter who in our government signs a treaty, if the treaty didn’t go through the appropriate review and approval process, it is NOT binding in any way shape, fashion, or form.

2.  Our nation remains sovereign.  No treaty may usurp any portion of our Constitution without a Constitutional amendment to that effect.  Thus, even if a treaty were to go through the appropriate review and approval process, if that treaty violates the Constitution, the treaty remains null and void.

Finding evidence which supports these claims is both simple and straightforward.  In fact, we need look no further than the Constitution itself.

The Treaty Review and Ratification Process

Article. II. Section 2. of the U.S. Constitution governs the process by which the President can make a treaty:

“He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…”

Did the President seek and obtain both the advice and the consent of the Senate?  Did two-thirds of the Senate concur?  Both of UN Arms Trade Treatythese requirements must be present before the President or his designee can legally sign a treaty.  On the day John Kerry signed this treaty, the Senate had been consulted, and their advice was a big fat “NO,” with a majority voting in opposition to the treaty.  Thus, neither Kerry nor Obama had obtained the consent of the Senate.  Furthermore, not only did two-thirds of the Senators present not concur, the majority of the Senators vehemently opposed the treaty.

In addition, there is serious doubt among Constitutional scholars that the President can appoint anyone to sign a treaty on his UN Arms Trade Treatybehalf without express, written authorization to do so.  General Douglas MacArthur had such authorization.  On September 2, 1945, MacArthur accepted the formal Japanese surrender aboard the battleship USS Missouri, thus ending hostilities in World War II.  John Kerry most certainly did not have any such authorization.

Regardless, neither Obama nor Kerry had either the consent or the a two-thirds concurrence of the Senate.  Therefore, Kerry’s signature on the treaty is invalid, null and void, and without any lawful authority or substance.

The Amendment Proposal and Ratification Process

Article. V. of the U.S. Constitution governs the process by which Amendments are proposed and ratified:

“The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”

Put simply, this clause requires the following for all Amendments to the Constitution:

1.  Two-thirds vote from both houses of Congress (or two-thirds of the state legislatures)

2.  Ratification by three-quarters of the state legislatures (or three-quarters of a Constitutional Convention).

3.  All Amendments are valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution.

Thus, even if Obama and Kerry had the advice and consent, along with a two-thirds concurrence of the Senate, the treaty would still be invalid simply because it violates our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.  As the Second Amendment clearly states, “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  The UN Arms Trade Treaty infringes on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.  It is therefore Constitutionally null and void.

The key thing to remember here is to never allow anyone to tell you otherwise.  When the entire populace of the United States of America knows its Constitution and the rights and freedoms respected and protected therein, no amount of government chicanery can take that away from them.

Know your rights!  Stand up for them, not merely often, but always!

It’s called FREEDOM, people, and it is very, very good.

Do You Know Ed Mezvinsky?

He was born January 17, 1937, but you’re probably saying, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?” and “Why should I care?”

Bear with me for a minute, as the answer has to do with Hillary Clinton’s run for the 2016 elections, and a great deal more.  The “more” part will boggle your mind.

Ed Mezvinsky is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States Ed MezvinskyHouse of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.  He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.

He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.

He and the Clintons were friends and very politically intertwined for many years.

Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.

In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.

In March 2001, Ed Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.  He had embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams (yes, he’s “that guy”).  He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.

After serving less than three-quarters of that time, he was released in April 2008.  He remains on federal probation.  To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.

About now you are saying, “So what!”

Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.  Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.  Chelsea married his son.

Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5Chelsea Clinton million dollar NYC apartment (after being married in George Soros’ mansion).

Has anyone heard any mention of any of this in any of the media?  No?

Gee…  I wonder why…

If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in-law, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.  The liberal rags, however, are owned by the same corrupted cabal to which the Clintons, the Mezvinskys, and Soros belongs.

People are already talking about Hillary as our next President, and there is a distinct possibly Chelsea will run in the future.  The Hillary Clintonheadlines are already proclaiming, “How Hillary Clinton won the 2014 midterms.”

Apparently, the cycle of the rich and corrupt never ends.

The Democrat’s ongoing scheme is simple:  Promise anything to the masses in order to keep being reelected, then abuse the power of their office to line their own pockets, the pockets of their friends, and the pockets of people and companies who funded their campaigns — at your expense.

Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular, yet Democrats who are repeatedly suckered into voting for them keep wondering when they’re going to get their slice of the pie.

The answer is, “Never, so long as you keep allowing yourself to be suckered in to voting for Democrats.”  If the Democrats have you on a hook, and want to keep you on that hook, the only only solution is to get off the hook.  Stop voting Democrat.

The Real Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson the Amazing

Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.  Psychologists specializing in the field of human intelligence agree, based on his scholastic endeavors and overall accomplishments, his IQ exceeded that of Einstein’s.

Here is a partial list of his many accomplishments:

At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

At 16, entered the College of William and Mary.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe.

At 23, started his own law practice.

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses.

At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America ” and retired from his law practice.

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress.

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence .

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia’s legal code and wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom.

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia succeeding Patrick Henry.

At 40, served in Congress for two years.

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations along with Ben Franklin and John Adams.

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington.

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society.

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party.

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States.

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase doubling the nation’s size.

At 61, was elected to a second term as President.

At 65, retired to Monticello .

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine.

At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first president.

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the Signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams.

Jefferson the Politician

Thomas Jefferson knew how best to create a government because he himself studied the many previous attempts at government, especially those which failed.  He understood actual history, the nature of God, God’s laws, and the nature of man.  Jefferson understood far more about people and governments back then than do nearly all elected officials today.

Jefferson really knew his stuff!

Furthermore, his wisdom remains as relevant today as it was then, for one simple fact: Technology changes.  People do not.

His is a voice from the past, as capable of leading us into future today as it was in leading our newly founded country into the 19th Century.

If you’re still unsure of Jefferson’s genius, I ask that you consider the following example, from another genius who lead us into the Space Age:

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House, with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

Jefferson the Scholar

Thomas Jefferson was not only a prolific scholar, but a prolific writer, as well.  Consider the follow quotes from his quill:

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .” Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”–Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”– Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”– Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”– Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”– Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”–  Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”– Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
–Thomas Jefferson

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” – 1802

Closing Thoughts

As we search high and low for answers plaguing our nation today, crippled as it is by ignorant and untenable idealism, the one thing we should remember above all else is that while technology changes, the nature of people and government do not.  History is rife with examples of what works, what doesn’t, and why.  As Einstein himself remarked, repeated the same experiment over and over while expecting different results is insane.

It’s time we, as a nation, grow beyond the insanity.  We need to stop trying to reinvent the wheel, and simply apply the hard-won lessons learned throughout the millennia of recorded history.  If there’s any legacy we might leave behind for all time, it’s that ours is the generation that finally got it right, that shortly after dawn in the 21st Century, humankind once and for all time, finally threw off its would-be dictators and those who sought to profit at the sweat of man’s brow, and returned to the proven and time-honored principles of sound government.

Those principles are well-established in our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and our Bill of Rights and the other Amendments.

Our generation faces myriads of challenges which require our inventiveness.  Our form of government, however is not among those challenges.  The only challenge we face today is how best to return our government to the successful model as established by our Founding Fathers, that of a small government, sized to provide for the basic needs as proscribed in the Constitution, yet one which leaves all other matters up to the states, also as proscribed by the Constitution, as well as our 10th Amendment.

Bye-Bye Obama, Hello Freedom! If only…

“The Alabama Supreme Court May Collapse Obama’s House Of Cards,” or so reads one headline, celebrating the possibility of finding a judge to hear Obama’s eligibility case.  But what would that mean for America?  What changes might we expect?
Well, for one, Obama would no longer be in the White House.  However, there are many more ramifications which few people have considered.  I’ll highlight a few here, just to whet your appetite:

1) Obama and family removed from the White House, possibly to face federal charges for knowingly defrauding the American People. That includes Michelle, for her lavish vacations. Bye-bye Obamas!

2) Obamacare would become instantly null and void, as Obama had no business being a part of its creation. Bye-bye massive government fraud against the people!

3) Biden would NOT become President, as he ran on Obama’s ticket. It’s not like Obama resigned. It’s that he wasn’t eligible to run in the first place, and you can’t have a VP in office on an illegal ticket. Biden would face similar charges of defrauding the American People. Bye-bye Biden!

4) Each and every Executive Order Obama signed, whether he created them or not, would become null and void. Bye-bye martial law, socialism, and his dictatorship!

5) Each and every piece of legislation he signed into law would become null and void. Bye-bye NDAA! At least for now.

6) Each and every one of his appointees, including two in the Supreme Court, and the ENTIRE cabinet, would become null and void, as he wasn’t authorized to appoint them. Bye-bye Kerry!

7) Every treaty or resolution he ever made with another country would be rendered null and void. Bye-bye U.N. Gun Ban!

And then?

HELLO FREEDOM!!!

Tyranny: Obama Signs Gun Control Treaty

Tyranny is raising its head yet again in the Obama administration, as well as in Congress.

Obama can sign the International Gun Control Treaty on Monday, June 3, 2013 if he wants to, but it is illegal for him to do so.  Furthermore, another forty-six U.S. Senators support subjugating our Constitution under the authority of the United Nations.

This is tyranny.  It is also patently un-Constitutional.

Obama cannot legally sign the treaty unless two, and only two, concurrent exceptions are in existence, simultaneously:

– Only upon the Advice and Consent of the Senate

– Two-thirds of the Senate must approve

Source: “[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur…” – U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2.

For Obama to even sign the treaty without the advice and consent of the Senate, and with the concurrence of two-thirds of their members, is a violation of Constitutional law.  This provision exists to prevent any single individual, not merely including the President, but especially the President, from obligating the entire country to be bound to treaty, unless it is within the will of the People for him to do so, as expressed through their representatives in Congress.

Countless surveys have proven it is NOT within the will of the People to enter into an International Gun Control Treaty, much less gun control at all.  Even the Democrat-controlled Senate flat-out rejected Obama’s post-Sandy Hook gun-control measures.  You think two-thirds of them will support this?  Heck no!  They will not, hence Obama’s illegal end-run around Congress.

Fortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court has jurisdiction to declare any and all treaties un-Constitutional, either by content of the treaty (infringement on the right to keep and bear arms), or by violation of procedure (without the Senate’s advice, consent, and 2/3 approval):

Source: “The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;–to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;–to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;–to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party…” – U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 2

Obama's Illegal Treaty
The Face of Tyranny

It would be nice, however, and very helpful, if Congress passed a public resolution reaffirming the Constitution’s mandates concerning treaties.  The public has a right to know that their government will not tolerate tyranny, rogue elements such as Obama going off half-cocked and fully illegal, regardless of his reasoning or justifications.  Such authority is expressly denied by our Constitution in order to prevent tyranny in our country.  The Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rest of her amendments exist first and foremost to protect us from precisely the sort of tyrannical action Obama promises to commit on Monday, June 3, 2013.

The President, Congress, the Supreme Court, indeed the entire country are all bound by the Constitution. It’s not a “guide.” The President has no option to do an end run around Congress, regardless of how urgent or dire he deems a situation. Our Constitution is the “supreme law of the land.” Violating it is a misdemeanor, at best. Violations of certain rights are often considered felonies.

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” – U.S. Constitution, Article VI

Finally, Congress has the power to impeach Obama should he violate these provisions:

“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.” – U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 4

The House files impeachment charges against the President: “The House of Representatives … shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.” – U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section II

The Senate tries impeachments of the President, and may convict on 2/3 vote: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.” – U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 3

The consequences of being convicted of impeachment are, at the very least, removal from office, but may be far more severe: “Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.” – U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 3

tyranny
The Glory of our Nation

Regardless of Obama’s justification or reasoning, his signing the treaty also violates the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constition, “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  The treaty is an infringement.  As such, even if he did have 2/3 approval of the Senate, it would still be un-Constitutional!

There is no pardon for tyranny, and the President cannot pardon himself from impeachment! “[The President] shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” – U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 2.

We are all bound by both duty and honor to fight Obama’s tyranny!

Newt on Benghazi

While reading Newt on Benghazi, I realized there’s a lot more to this story.  It’s far worse than the fact four Americans died.

Newt on BenghaziIt’s the fact they didn’t have to die.  It’s the fact that the man sitting in the White House is masquerading as a U.S. President.  It’s the fact that he got there through massive fraud and deceit, including rampant voter fraud.  It’s the fact that he conspired with our enemies to kidnap a U.S. Ambassador.  It’s the fact that when things went sour, instead of scrapping the plan and rescuing those he’d put in harm’s way, he not only LET them die, he went out of his way to ensure they received no help whatsoever.  It’s the fact that in so doing, he was already covering up, even as they were dying.  It’s the fact that he fired four General Officers, each of whom had more integrity in their little finger than he’s ever known throughout the entire half-century of his life, as a warning to others.

It’s the fact this only BEGINS to crack the surface of his hundreds of high crimes and misdemeanors, each of which quality for impeachment and jail time, if not a death sentence for being a traitor.  It’s the fact that, taken together, they are so incredibly damning that the only reason he wasn’t sentenced long ago is because half of Congress is COMPLICIT due to their refusal to do their duty and impeach him.

It’s the fact that WE THE PEOPLE have had ENOUGH.

He does NOT represent us.  He does NOT represent America.  He was NOT born in America.

Obama is NOT an American.

Today Was a Shameful Day in Washington

Today was a victorious day for the American People!  The rights bestowed on us by our Creator and recognized by our Constitution were UPHELD.

Yet Obama said this was a “shameful day for Washington.”

For once, he got it right.  Not because they failed to uphold our Constitutional rights.  But because Obama was “visibly angry and frustrated” as a result.

It was a shameful day for Washington because the man who purports to be our President falsely accused the NRA of lying to the American people.  I’ve been over the NRA’s claims hundreds of times over the last year.  I’ve YET to catch them in ANY lie.  Meanwhile, I’ve caught Obama in THOUSANDS of lies.

It was a shameful day for Washington because Obama cites “polls showing 90 percent support for universal background checks” while ignoring polls showing 90 percent of the people are against gun control.  It’s a shameful day in Washington because Obama masqueraded his gun control efforts as “universal background checks.”  Even Harried Reid, the Democrat Senator from Nevada, said the bill contained too much of Obama’s “gun control.”

Most days are indeed shameful ones for Washington.  We still have a man sitting in the White House who has no legitimate Constitutional claim to that seat.  He’s still telling lies left and right while pointing fingers at everyone else, playing the childish blame game in his attempts to throw the spotlight off his own deceptions.  Our Congress failed to have the guts to do what was right by the American people and impeach this anti-Constitutional imposter the first time around.

Yes, indeed, Mr. Obama – so long as you remain in the White House, doing what you do, it is indeed a shameful day in Washington.

But not today.  Today is a day for triumph, not shame. 🙂
