How I Voted in the 2014 Elections

“…a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King

The 2014 elections are by far the most important elections to date of this century.  Despite governmental reassurances to the contrary, America is tottering over the brink of economic collapse.  Vote wrong, and we most certainly will lose.  Vote right, and we might be able to haul her back from the edge.

As a registered Independent, I spent all afternoon Sunday reviewing not only the positions, but also the voting records of allMartin Luther King, Jr. 21 positions (42 candidates — half Republican, half Democrat) on my ballot. Given my “preaching” here on Facebook, I wanted to be absolutely certain I was electing the best candidate for each position, and not just “voting party line.”

I based my decisions mostly on their voting records. The criteria was simple: Had they supported and defended the Constitution,
voting records“the supreme Law of the Land,” as per their oaths of office? Or were they perverting our government by actions which undermined our Constitution and the rights and freedoms it recognizes and protects?

It was close in only 5 of the 21 open positions. The other 16 positions were slam-dunks.

In ALL cases, however, the records of the Republican candidates made it clear they stood for our rights and freedoms, while the records of the Democrat candidates made it clear they stood for bigger government at the EXPENSE of our rights and freedoms.

Sunday’s exercise was yet another of countless confirmations that the Democrat Party itself is no longer American, that it has been usurped by a mix of communists, fascists, socialists, muslims, opportunists and just plain idiots, to be used solely for the purpose of pulling the wool over the eyes of mostly lower to middle-class voters in order to remain in power, raise taxes, and siphon off a great deal of our hard-earned tax dollars into their own pockets and those of their friends.

To be fair, some Republicans are doing this, too, but I continually find they’re doing so to a far lesser extent.

Bottom line: I remain an Independent voter, yet cast all my votes towards the Republicans. My decisions were not based on the color of their party, but on the content of their character.

I’ll leave you with one last observation.  Five years of digging into what goes on behind the curtains in both parties have lead me to conclude what the Democrats say about the Republicans are largely lies, often made up on the spot, and that the elements in the following graphic are largely true:

Truth

 

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican, not a Democrat, and for many very good reasons which are even more sound today than they were back then.

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.

Agenda 21 – The Hype – The Lie – The Truth

“Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the United Nations…”

Well, that’s the main problem right there.  The U.N.’s ultimate aspirations are to replace national government control over their own countries with the U.N.’s set of Do’s and Don’ts.  The problem is, those who run the U.N. are leader-wanna-be’s.  They weren’t good enough to rise to higher levels of leadership within their own country, so they’re banding together to rule the world.

Chief complaints about Agenda 21:

“During the last decade, opposition to Agenda 21 has increased within the United States at the local, state, and federal levels.”

“We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty.” – RNC resolution opposing Agenda 21

“Several state and local governments have considered or passed motions and legislation opposing Agenda 21.”

“Columnists in The Atlantic have linked opposition to Agenda 21 to the property rights movement in the United States.”

“A poll of 1,300 United States voters by the American Planning Association found that 9% supported Agenda 21, 6% opposed it, and 85% thought they didn’t have enough information to form an opinion.”

For those 85%, PLEASE get more information so you can form an opinion!  Of those Americans who do have enough information to form an opinion, most oppose it, by a margin of 2.5 to 1.  Here’s a good source for more information, OBJECTIVE information, put out by concerned Americans (as opposed to U.N. spin doctors):  http://www.freedomadvocates.org/

“Glenn Beck said it was a means of instituting ‘centralized control over all of human life on planet Earth.'”

Here’s what the U.N.’s Agenda 21 propaganda machine spins:  “Agenda 21 is not a treaty or legally binding document and does not infringe upon the sovereignty of any nation, state, or local government. Agenda 21 does not advocate for abolishing private property or have any bearing on U.S. local and state land-use decisions. In other words, it isn’t being forced on anybody, anywhere, by any organization.”

The actual texts of the Agenda 21 initiatives, as evidenced at Freedom Advocates, tell a completely different story.  In other words, THE U.N. IS LYING TO YOU.  So are the libs and dems who keep trying to shove it down your throats.  That’s what corrupt governments DO.  They LIE.  Whatever you may have heard about Agenda 21 from the U.N. or sources fed by them is a LIE.

Are Executive Orders Law? A Case Study on the Limitations of Presidential Powers and Authority

The Short Answer

No, they are not in and of themselves law.

The Middle Answer

Executive Orders may carry the “weight of law,” but only insofar as:

1.  They’re directed to a department or other government entity under the Constitutional authority of the President of the United States of America…

and

2.  The orders themselves do not violate the Constitution itself or any local, state, or federal statute which lawfully derives its authority from the Constitution.

For example, the President can direct one or more of his department heads to conduct their affairs in a certain manner.  He cannot direct a department head to violate the Constitution in any manner, nor can he direct the affairs of any entity not under his direct administrative authority as proscribed and limited by the Constitution.

The Long Answer

There is no constitutional provision or statute that explicitly permits executive orders.  The authority to do has been assumed by all Presidents, from George Washington on, from Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the Constitution, which simply states:  “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.”  It has widely, though errantly been assumed Article II, Section 3, Clause 5 cements this power, but when we actually read this clause, it only states, “he [the President] shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

Article II, Section 3, Clause 5 does NOT give the President any power or authority to create law.  It’s a restriction on his power, not permission.  It simply means that the President and his actions while in office must conform to all laws, beginning with, but not limited to the Constitution of the United States of America.  All additional legislation, provided it legally adheres to the Constitution, is also binding to the President, his staff, and all departments beneath his office, including all Amendments, which themselves are integral components of the Constitution itself.

Thus, does the President, Congress, or the Supreme Court have any right, power, or authority to direct any government agency or group within a that agency to violate the Fourth Amendment protections?

No, they don’t.

While the office of the Presidency is quite powerful, our Constitution places a tight reign on both the limit and scope of those powers.  Let’s see what powers the President does have, by examining those listed for the President in the Constitution of the United States of America, in Article II, Sections 2 and 3:

1.  Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States (self explanatory)

2.  Commander in Chief of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States

Note:  U.S.C., as well as both federal and Supreme Court decisions, has limited the term “Militia of the several States” to apply only to the National Guard, and has excluded any application to either any other militias mentioned in State Constitutions or to the armed general populace

3.  May require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices

Note:  Put simply, he can ask his department heads “what’s going on?”

4.  Shall have the Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of impeachment (self-explanatory)

5.  Shall have power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur

Note:  Our President can NOT make a treaty without a 2/3 Senate concurrence, and he must get their advice first.  Thus, any “Gun Ban Treaty” is both illegal and unenforceable without 2/3 Senate concurrence.

6.  Shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein other otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Department.

Note:  This one requires some dissection.  All senior officers of the various executive departments, of which their are 15, such as the Department of Defense, all key sub-departments (such as the Department of the Air Force), all ambassadors, public Ministers and Counsels (representatives of foreign governments), Supreme Court Justices, and a few others categories require 2/3 advice and consent of the Senate.  The second part allows for the appointment as a civil or military office by procedure outlined in law.  Thus, military officers are given a “Presidential Commission” by procedure, not directly by the President himself.  By “inferior Officer” they’re referring to lower levels, such as the Undersecretary of the Air Force and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force.

7.  The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Note:  In January, 2013, a federal court indicted President Obama because Obama made appointments during a temporary recess of the Senate while the Senate was still in session, instead of between sessions.  Those whom he appointed remain in office, illegally.

8.  He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.

Note:  First, the State of the Union address is a requirement, not an option.  Second, it’s a duty for him to recommend necessary and expedient measures to Congress for their consideration.  Obama utterly failed in that duty.  He instead used it as a chest-pounding, “LOOK AT ME!  Look what I have done!  I have created FIRE!” type of speech.

9.  He may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them…

Note:  The Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor was one such occasion.  The 9/11 attacks were another such occasion.  There have been few other such occasions throughout the course of American history.

10.  …and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper.

Note:  If the two houses, during an “extraordinary Occasion,” disagreed on the time of adjournment, this clause gives the President the authority to set a time.  However, he can only do so if the two houses disagreed on a time.

That’s IT, ladies and gentleman.  This is ALL the President is authorized to do with respect to administering the duties of his office.

So who has the Constitutional power and authority to create law?  Article 1, Section 1:  “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

Note:  The term “legislative” means “power or authority to create law.  Please note the President (executive branch) is not mentioned.

I’d like to point out two additional sections which are quite relevant:

Article II Section 4:  “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.”

Some of Obama’s “high crimes” (felonies) and misdemeanors are being presented to the U.S. Supreme Court today (February 15, 2013).  Among them are Obama’s failure to register for the United States Selective Service System.  This is a felony, and disqualifies anyone who commits this felony from holding any position in the United States Government.

In summary:  Are Executive Orders Law?

Short Answer:  No.

Medium Answer:  They carry the weight of law, but he has no authority to either create law or violate the law.

Long Answer:  Hell no.

The United States of America is Run By Idiots

Is the United States of America actually run by idiots?
Apparently, our country really is being run by idiots:
1.  You can get arrested for expired vehicle/inspection tags but not for being in the country illegally.
2.  Our government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more of our money.
3.  A seven year old boy can be  thrown out of school for calling his teacher “cute” but hosting a sexual  exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable.
4.  The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.
5.  Hard work and success are rewarded with higher taxes and government intrusion, while slothful, lazy behavior is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid and subsidized housing, and free cell phones.
6.  The government’s plan for getting people back to work is to provide 99 weeks of unemployment checks (to not work).
7.  Being self-sufficient is considered a threat to the government.
8.  Politicians think that stripping away the amendments to the constitution is really protecting the rights of the people.
9.  The rights of the Government come before the rights of the individual.
10.  You can write a post like this just by reading the news headlines.
11.  You pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV while your neighbor defaults on his mortgage (while buying iphones, TV’s and new cars) and the government forgives his debt and reduces his mortgage (with your tax dollars).
12.  Your government can add anything they want to your kid’s water (fluoride, chlorine, etc.) but you are not allowed to give them raw milk.13.  A man can stand his ground under a stand your ground law, wind up being the victim of aggravated assault to such a degree that he was in imminent danger of losing his life, defend himself with the lawful use of deadly force clearly delineated in the law, and still wind up being charged with second degree murder by a vehemently anti-Constitutionalist anti-gunner state attorney, nearly three months after the local law enforcement and prosecutor’s office let him go in accordance with state law.
13.  Being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you “safe”.
14.  You’re 96% more likely to die in a “Gun Free Zone” than one where firearms are allowed, despite the fact that such “Gun Free Zones” comprise less than 10% of the places people are likely to frequent.
15.  You have to have your parents signature to go on a school field trip but not to get an abortion.
16.  An 80 year old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a Muslim woman in a full-length burka is only subject to having her neck and head searched.
17.  The have been more legitimate arrests of the thousands of TSA agents for their own criminal wrongdoing than there have been by TSA agents for legitimate criminal wrongdoing on the part of millions of passengers.
18.  Using the “N” word is considered “hate speech” but writing and singing songs about raping women and killing cops is considered “art”.
19.  Politicians continually call for increasing gun control, when doing so has always resulted in higher crime, while reducing gun control has always lowered crime.

“I’m not an American.” – Barack Hussain Obama

Obama recently ordered the troops not to criticize the Taliban.  Yet Obama has, by his own admission, no legal authority to do so.  In his own words:  “First of all, it’s true, I’m not an American.  I was not born in Hawaii.  I was not born in the United States of America.  I come from Kenya.”

Video of Obama admitting he’s not a U.S. citizen

Our oaths of office are to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  Our Constitution absolutely demands the following:  “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” – Article II Section 1.

Since by Obama’s own admission his is not Constitutionally eligible to be President, he is not in fact, the President at all, and therefore has no authority over the troops as their Commander in Chief.

In fact, he is in the White House illegally and should immediately resign.  If he refuses, he needs to be removed from the White House without delay.

This should not require impeachment, which would be appropriate for the President.  Since he’s not eligible to be the President, and is not, in fact, the President, he is therefore not eligible for impeachment status.  He simply needs to be physically removed, preferably by federal agents, and charged as would be any citizen, or in this case, non-citizen.

For more proof that Obama is not an America, check out this article on everything that’s wrong with the two ficticious birth certificates released by his administration.
