    Article V Blog ^ | September 26th 2016 | Rodney Dodsworth
    As Mark Levin explained in Chapter One, he undertook his project not because he believed the “Constitution, as originally structured, is outdated and outmoded, thereby requiring modernization through amendments, but because of the opposite – that is, the necessity and urgency of restoring constitutional republicanism and preserving the civil society . . . “ In this squib, we’ll examine the observations of James Madison and Alexander Hamilton as they apply to keeping, and if necessary, restoring constitutional republicanism. Number 33. Laws Judged Against the Constitution. What if the new government overstepped its authority through the exercise of a power reserved...
  • Trump Campaign Plans $140 Million Ad Buy

    09/25/2016 11:34:35 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 7 replies
    Trump's new ad buy will include 13 states, from key battlegrounds such as Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania, to new targets of Maine, New Mexico and Wisconsin, Miller said. About $40 million of the ads will play on national TV, he said.That averages to about $16.7 million per week in TV ads; Miller said the first $15 million ad buy was made Friday, although media buyers and services such as Kantar Media didn't immediately see evidence of that. Clinton's ad reservations going forward total about $11 million per week

    American Rattlesnake ^ | September 26,2016 | Gerard Perry
    After months of anticipation, later tonight we’ll finally be able to watch the two presidential frontrunners square off on national television. Despite portraying their candidate as an intellectual juggernaut-and her opponent as nothing short of a gibbering dolt-Clinton surrogates are intent upon working the refs, and the refs seem more than happy to oblige. Whether or not this influences the course of the debate remains to be seen. Expecting professional journalists to fulfill their duties is a bit of an ask, admittedly. Personally, I think Trump supporters expecting Hillary to publicly humiliate herself are somewhat delusional. Although she’s an historically...

    Mark Cuban, the unhinged star of Shark Tank and Hillary Clinton Fanboy, apparently has a dark and disturbing past of abusing and sexually accosting women. Cuban, who promoted teen porn series “Girls Gone Wild,” and is also famous for saying that he’d “cross the street if he saw a black person in a hoodie,” is Hillary’s VIP GUEST at Monday’s debate. It’s disturbing that she would invite someone with a dark and disturbing anti-woman past – however, it gets worse. A recently uncovered photo of Mark Cuban pulling a woman’s hair, while exposing himself has emerged.

    Tomorrow night’s debate might be one of the most watched events in US television history, in competition with the Who Shot JR? cliffhanger and the last episode of MASH. The stakes are high and nothing less than the White House. Failure tomorrow night for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton may signal the beginning of a permanent downward trend in their campaigns. Hillary Clinton will walk on stage in the attack mode and with all the charm of a pit bull locked in a broom closet. Hillary’s soft side is a bed of nails. She’ll attempt to be tough and...

    Reuters ^ | September 23, 2016 | Tom Miles
    Police killings of black people in the United States are reminiscent of lynchings and the government must do far more to protect them, a United Nations working group says in a report that will be debated at the U.N. Human Rights Council on Monday. The hard-hitting criticism - drawing a comparison between modern police behaviour and mob killings of blacks in the 19th and 20th centuries - comes at a time of renewed racial tension in the United States. This week Charlotte, North Carolina, saw street riots over the shooting of a black man, Keith Scott, by a black police...

    Trump has three advantages that are just kicking in that each could give Trump a lasting bump that can put him over the top. If they all materialize, it is hard to see how Trump loses. (1) King NeverTrump Surrenders Ted Cruz endorsed Trump when the race was already tied. Cruz had a hardcore following around the country, and his steadfast opposition no doubt persuaded some of his supporters to also withhold support. It will not persuade the establishment holdouts to change their minds, but they really just don't seem to matter much this time around.  Hillary has already consolidated...

    I have friends from both sides of the aisle on FB. I generally ignore their political posts, especially during elections. But I have noticed a new trend in the past week or two. The lower Hillary is in the polls, the louder, the more derisive, and the more often they are posting about Trump and his supporters. I don't think that we are even close to seeing the meltdown of Hillary's minions.

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Mark Apel, Area Agent
    Now that our monsoon is winding down, perhaps you are noticing areas on your property where heavy rainfalls have begun to wash away one of your most precious resources – your soil. Depending on the topography of your property, you may notice areas of bare ground, new small channels that are forming or older channels that are deepening with every rain event. Soil erosion is a natural and human-caused phenomenon worldwide and can even be seen from space through satellite imagery. For example, a quick peak on Google Maps of the delta south of New Orleans shows a very muddy,...

Unless you happen to be a heavenly being on a deluxe slumming tour of our charming little planet, you are probably part devil and part angel. The only difference is the degree to which either entity is in greater control than the other at any given time. Of course, we do not mean to imply that an actual miniature devil sits on one shoulder and a miniature angel on the other whispering in your ears,...

    What's in it for America, and for you? The Islamic State of Iran is held to be a sovereign state bordered on its west by Iraq and Turkey, in the east by Pakistan and Afghanistan, to the north by the Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, and Armenia, and to the south by the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. This presents the world of Asia with a land mass of over 636,000 square miles.

    America should be ruled by law. Not political correctness which apparently treats an American black president as above the law and immune from the just and proper administration of justice According to FBI files released on Friday, Obama on June 28, 2012 communicated by email using a fake name with Hillary’s private unsecure email. And as such, they knowingly passed classified information between each other outside of secure proper government controls. As a result, they are both guilty of breaching the Espionage Act and both Obama and Hillary should be going to jail. Here is the relevant section of the...
  • Comparing Barrel Twist Rates

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 9/25/2016 | J Hines
    When a bullet is fired, the rifling of the barrel puts a twist on the bullet in order to improve accuracy, increase the distance traveled, and to stabilize the bullet as it moves through the air towards its target. Twist rates are often set up as a ratio, such as 1:14, 1:12, or 1:7, which refers to inches per turn. A twist rate of 1:10 means the bullet will turn one time in 10 inches of the barrel. Rifling was discovered in 15th century Germany and most likely took the science behind arrows, which are fletched in a way that...

And that the police never heard about pocket-lint being caught in a throw-down, “cold piece,” thereby ultimately incriminating the thrower?

The thing about politics that is easy to disdain is that it more often than not uses words to cover and mask serious errors in judgment with more publicly acceptable rhetorical phrases and words. Wickedness and immorality are clandestinely draped with words like, liberalism, inclusion, civil rights and safety. It is only when we examine the product of a world view that we see what it really is – or do we?

Commissioner John Koskinen explained that "failure to enroll evinces a lack of cooperation with a policy that the government has determined is necessary. Non-compliers may feel that enrollment is optional. It is not. That's why there is a fine. Paying the fine doesn't get them off the hook."

It shows Trump leading 47/40 in Georgia and 44/37 in Iowa. In Colorado, where Obama won by 5 points in 2012, Clinton’s 8 point lead on August 17 has dissipated to 2 points which is within the 3.9% MOE. Moreover, Colorado is 87% White which is just at the beginning of certain trouble for Clinton since she is polling so poorly with Whites that Reuters has ALREADY all but called Vermont for...

    Although overshadowed by your regularly scheduled terror attacks, as well as pre-debate effluvia, the media’s attempt to turn Donald Trump Jr.’s recent tweet into a cause célèbre for smug leftists is worth examining in detail. While some right wing pundits pointed out the similarity between his Skittles metaphor and a feminist-inspired meme involving a different chewy candy, the actual root of this analogy is the precautionary principle, a deeply flawed approach to risk management. The idea being that the introduction of a new product or process whose impact is unknown or disputed should be resisted. The problem is that the...

Allan Lichtman, a distinguished professor of history at American University, told The Washington Post that based on a system he calls "Keys to the White House", Trump will emerge victorious in the November election. “Based on the 13 keys, it would predict a Donald Trump victory,” he claimed. The professor said he derived the system of true/false statements, "by looking at every American presidential election from 1860 to 1980,...

    In May of 2012,  Clifford Charles Tyler filed a suit to regain his Second Amendment rights, which had been improperly withheld from him when he attempted to buy a firearm. When he attempted to purchase a firearm, he had been denied because he had been involuntarily committed 28 years before. The District Court dismissed the lawsuit on January 29, 2013. Tyler appealed to the Sixth Circuit.  A three judge panel of the Sixth Circuit ruled the provision unconstitutional in December of 2014. The Obama administration found the case important enough that they asked for, and got, an en banc review....

Probably a prednisone regimen 4 days leading up to the debate, a prescription strength throat analgesic. I think she'll be very aggressive while straining to keep her voice soft and steady. I wouldn't be surprised if she's sandbagging a bit on the health. Cancelling events to keep her from the more communistic gaffs she's prone too. Hopefully Trump sees through this and they figure out a way to...

And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores.” Well, this is quite a contrast between these two guys. Which one would...

In the analogy, the son of the presidential candidate took on the argument that only a few terrorists would be able to sneak into the country by hiding among the throng of refugees from Syria. Trump asked "suppose I offered you the opportunity to grab a handful of Skittles from a bowl in which just a few were poisoned, would you take them?" The astoundingly dense Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif) called Trump Jr. "a rotten apple that hasn't fallen...

    It's time to recognize what freedom really entails. It's not the freedom to destroy by invoking "free speech," but the freedom to work, produce and build a strong family, community and nation The war of semantics has overshadowed the rising tempers among special interest minority groups. In an effort to diffuse or whitewash (look it up if you’re inclined to infer racist overtones) the growing divide between communities in the United States, talking heads have come up with another ‘softening’ term for plain old racism. By employing this newspeak term, “racialism,” pundits seek to deflect from identifying their remarks as...

    With her unpopular positions and repulsive mindset, the real question is why isn’t Hillary Clinton 50 points behind in this election? In a bizarre video message this week to the Laborers International Union of North America, Hillary Clinton asked, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?” She seemed concerned that her opponent, Donald Trump, had closed the gap in the polls. Clinton claimed that Trump was staunchly opposed to labor unions, but she had a long history of support. She also noted her strong opposition to Right to Work laws. According to Clinton, “Right to Work is wrong for workers and...

    For Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), the decision to endorse Republican nominee Donald Trump wasn’t an easy one. Although for the former Republican presidential nominee’s supporters the decision seemed to be sudden and rash, Cruz told KTRK-TV Friday that the decision to support Trump didn’t come as a result of a political deal, but rather it came after several months of thought and prayer. “There were no deals,” Cruz told the news station. “We had been engaged in conversations. You know it’s been a decision as I said I’ve been thinking about and praying about for weeks and months, discussing it...

    This week, ISIS launched a mustard gas rocket against U.S. forces in an unpopulated area near the Qayyara West base in Iraq. The U.S. military is in the region preparing an airfield ahead of Iraq's offensive to retake the city of Mosul from Islamic State. The rocked carrying the chemical agent landed within hundreds of meters. The poor condition of the warhead posed no threat to personnel in the area. The U.S. military is testing fragments and a small sample of a suspicious "tar-like, black, oily" substance from the scene. The first examination initially tested positive for mustard gas but...

    Set-up nearly finished for 2016 GRPC I am writing from the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Tampa, Florida.  Got up at 0400 this morning in Dallas where I was visiting family.  The Dallas/Fort Worth airport was easy to get to, but if you are flying out of it,  research off-site parking.  The $24 a day inside the airport parking is a little stiff. Once inside, the ticket counter agent knew her gun protocol inside and out.  No problem.  The TSA agent did not need to X-ray.  Maybe an extra 5 minutes, max.  Going through the security screening a...

    Mark Levin’s Liberty Amendments burst on the conservative scene in August 2013. Its appeal was not limited to conservative media outlets in talk radio and the internet; the book shot skyward on the New York Times bestseller list to #1 by September 1st. While the second approach to correcting defects in our governing compact has been right under our national noses since 1787, Mark took a modern look at an old clause that had long been downplayed by scholars and disregarded by the public as dangerous. Article V grants nothing. It is no more than recognition of a God-given societal...

    Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats think that half of America consists of a basket of Deplorables; which includes gun owners, Christians, libertarians, veterans, rural America and those souls on the ‘Alt Right’ who believe in inalienable rights and the pursuit of happiness. In actuality, the real basket of Deplorables is the myriad of horrendous facts which confirm that the last seven years of the Obama administration have been an absolute and unmitigated disaster domestically and internationally. Without further ado, the Real Deplorables: The nation has the lowest labor participation rate since the 1970’s, with nearly 94 million Americans out...
