    The clerk should continue to refuse and the Director of the Records should issue a stern-wink-wink letter to follow the law but never do anything to enforce it.

    If US Marshals are called in, let the people of KY stand about 30 deep around the entrances with the Sheriffs just standing around with their arms folded, rolling their eyes and whistling.

    Have the clerks sleep at supporter’s homes every other night or so that a night raid won’t be able to find them to arrest.

    Do that for months and months until a groundswell across the country breaks out and SCOTUS becomes a target for 2016 election campaigning led by Donald Trump and Ted Cruz proposing an amendment to the Constitution to get some control over these black robed creeps.

    To say that Trump never criticizes Obama or other democrats is laughable and embarrassing.

    Trump has repeatedly criticized Obama for the Iran Deal, for Obamacare, for creating enormous divisiveness etc. In addition Trump has pushed for investigation into Obama’s forged birth certificate, and release of his school transcripts.

    Trump has repeatedly criticized Hillary and the press that protect her for the email scandal, how corrupt she is, how General Petraeus was destroyed for doing not even a tenth of what she has done.

    O’Reilly and Krauthammer are completely wrong and wrongheaded about Donald Trump but who is surprised by their actions? Not me.

    McConnell is now far down in the polls. Less than 45% favorable last I heard and that was in the week following Ted Cruz exposing him for his lies about no deal to fund the corrupt Ex-Im Bank.

    Further, he won as an incumbent by only 59% in the match against Bevin and Bevin was not such a great candidate.

    I have been one of Ted Cruz’ longest and biggest supporters on FR. I still contribute to his campaign and I have also registered with Donald Trump’s campaign website.

    What Ted is say is ‘theoretically’ true. But reality is different. The reality is Obama’s lawlessness.

    What should be done in theory that matches reality is not to vote to repudiate but rather vote requesting the House to draw up Articles of Impeachment. And yes I know that with McConnell and Boehner, such Articles of Impeachment will never happen.

    But I said match the ‘theory’ with the reality.

    Articles of Impeachment ‘match’ Obama’s lawlessness.

    To have the Senate vote to repudiate is Ted thinking out loud about a response that has no impact. Because Obama has already had the deal ratified by the UN. And that means the $$$ is released to the current era’s version of Nazi Germany.

    Ted should have called for Obama’s impeachment when Obama decided to go to the UN to have his deal ratified.

    OR ... now that I am thinking about it, Ted should introduce legislation that bars a US President from negotiating treaties and deals with the UN without first getting approval from the US Senate or Congress in general.

    Now such legislation would again have no impact but it would allow a clear view of who and who does not support Obama’s lawlessness and if by miracle such legislation was taken up and passed, then it would add to a moral argument for impeachment because Obama had promised he would wait for Congress before going to the UN and he broke up his promise. An impeachment could be based on solid ground of failing to observe the Constitutional requirement that 2/3’s of the Senate is required to approve a treaty but it would need to be accompanied by resolutions in both chambers that the Iran Deal is deemed a treaty. But this is all for the purpose of impeachment which will not happen with the current leadership in Congress.

    We are talking about setting the stage for impeachment and that will never happen under McConnell/Boehner so this is all just talk and Ted’s suggestion to vote to repudiate is also just talk. I also saw the OAN interview of Sarah Palin with Ted Cruz.

    So what we are doing is wasting time. What we should be doing is making sure Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the ticket for 2016 to the fullest of our abilities.That means fighting the Rove-Bush machine.

    Ted will have an Iran Deal protest with Donald Trump coming up. But the Iran Deal is a done deal from Obama’s point of view and Donald Trump said yesterday to the press and to the crowd that no matter what we do, no matter how our Congress votes etc. Iran gets the massive funds for which to create unbridled terrorism and nuclear attacks. Both Ted and Donald said precisely that.

    Several other polls show Trump with a solid lead in Iowa and just about everywhere else.

    Monmouth sampling and reporting 10% to Fiorina makes their poll suspected as not generalizable. All other polls have her at about half that.

    Trump is also very popular with youth. So I am skeptical on Monmouth’s results if it showed Fiorina most popular with youth.

    You don’t understand the process and that’s no insult to you because most don’t understand.

    Congress does not vote “to treat” legislation as a treaty. A Treaty is negotiated by the President and is presented to the US Senate for approval. If the US Senate approves, it becomes law to all Americans.

    The Corker Bill unfortunately was presented as ‘legislation’ and all legislation is subject to veto.

    Obama never presented his Iran deal as a treaty. He said he wanted a bill, meaning legislation, patterned after his ‘deal’. He knew or his advisors knew that any bill could be vetoed.

    Early on Congress did tell Obama to present his negotiation as a treaty to the Senate and when Obama balked, Senator Cotton led the effort of 47 US Senators to post a letter on the internet warning Iran that the US Congress was not in agreement with the deal negotiated by Obama.

    Obama then gave Congress an ultimatim. He said if he did not have a bill presented to him, he would go around Congress to the UN and have the deal ratified there.

    So Corker introduced the bill that Obama wanted and Ted Cruz railed and railed against it that Obama’s deal should be presented as a treaty. When McConnell lined up the Senators that he controlled, he passed the cloture which Ted Cruz voted against. But then Ted Cruz saw that stopping the Corker bill was a lost cause and he voted for it along with Senator Jeff Sessions because it presented an opportunity to delay the deal.

    Again, as I posted before, Obama had promised Congress he would hold off going to the UN if they presented him a bill. But he broke his promise and went to the UN anyways. That means the $150+ Billion enters a phase of release so that the whole issue is moot except for recording votes for the history books.

    Nothing can be done now. There will be war in 2 years.

    The Judge has the power but does he have the stones?

    The power lays in judicial receivership (look it up). This is where the judiciary sends out US Marshals to take over an agency or office to perform an investigation.


    The takeaway is that most people should not want to mess with a federal judge. It can be harmful to your life to think otherwise.

    Try to pay attention.

    It is the ‘treaty talk’ that you mentioned that does not matter now.

    The Iran deal will be sent back to Obama with a disapproval but Obama will veto. So the exercise is for the history books but will heve no impact on today’s developments, because the enemy is getting what they want.

    Here’s the good news that a Donald Trump-like administration could finesse.

    We can have NG/LNG infrastructure for massive exports up and running in 3 to 5 years and we can dominate the market because of the low cost of our NG. We can also have foreign buyers make the investment in liquefaction plants in Long Beach and Houston (I know for a fact that S. Korea will put up all the investment in port infrastructure).

    Competitors like the Italians and other Euro interests in the NG find in the Med will have huge environmental restrictions and huge time development to get at their find and make it competitive.

    As for Russia signing agreements, Russia is not a reliable business partner. Their contracts don’t mean sh*t because there is no Rule of Law to enforce a Russian contract. The Euros know this first-hand. Basically Russia is comprised of 3 mafia-like families that control all O&G in Russia of which Putin heads one of the families. The families have a truce-like standing agreement with each other but that ‘truce’ can flip on a dime. Nobody likes doing business with Russia.

    Natural Gas (NG) is natural and burns clean. It can be created even from rotting waste or cow farts. It’s everywhere and easily created.

    The USA has 10 X more NG than its population could ever use in the next hundreds of years.

    Yet Asia and Europe are on their knees for a reliable NG supply.

    NG can be converted to liquid NG or LNG and exported by ship.

    The USA can become the Saudi Arabia of LNG for the world. And it would employ millions of Americans (no exaggeration) into secure high paying jobs for decades.

    Senator Jeff Sessions also voted for it.

    Senator Cruz fought against cloture on the Corker bill, he fought passionately and long that the Corker bill would turn the Senate treaty powers of the Constitution upside down. But once McConnell lined up his lemmings for Cloture of the bill, Senator Cruz came out sad and disappointed knowing he could not stop it, so he told the Press that he would vote for the bill because it would slightly delay it by a few months.

    Here’s the thing: the Iran deal is ultimately about the $150+ Billion that is held frozen around the world as a result of sanctions. The deal is not a treaty, it is an agreement to release the $$$. For the US Senate to argue ‘treaty’ was dumb because those around the world with their hands on the $$$ don’t give a damn about US Senators and their arguments about ‘treaty’; it’s meaningless to them.

    So although we’d like to admire Senator Cotton for his principled stand, his stand don’t mean sh*t in the bigger picture.

    Here’s another thing: Barack Obama threatened Congress that if he didn’t get a deal he would go around them to the UN and get what he wanted which was a release of the $$$. HE PROMISED IF CONGRESS GAVE HIM THE DEAL HE WOULD HOLD OFF ON GOING TO THE UN.

    HE BROKE HIS PROMISE. So Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions voting for the Corker Bill to ‘delay’ it was in vain because it wasn’t delayed because Obama is a f*cking liar.

    So regardless of the f*cking ‘deal’, the $$$ is on its way to Iran and their terror network.

    McConnell should have stoked the House to immediately bring articles of impeachment for setting up a Senate trial but as you can see he’s an ass and a moron. As Donald Trump says McConnell’s a great part of the incompetence in Congress and the result of this incompetence is we are, as Ted Cruz says, going to have a war in the next 2 years.

    Sorry for my profanity but this is bad all around and should make people max angry; but the logic/illogic behind the whole damn thing makes it difficult for people to get their thoughts clear about it. Once people understand the real story behind it, and once they understand there’s going to be a whole lot of dead Americans because of it, then Obama should be tried and convicted which won’t happen because political correctness has made Americans stupid.

    I guarantee you in the next few years ahead, political correctness is going to be so hated that the Megyn Kelly’s of the press will be afraid to appear anywhere.

    It was a presentation on one of his radio shows and I believe a transcript is available. But it was a Monday I believe after Donald Trump announced and released his immigration reform overview which raised the subject of birthright citizenship as an issue for the campaign. It was not a new subject to Mark and other constitutional scholars but it was made anew by Donald Trump so Mark led with it on his show.

    In Mark’s show he called out the specific words of the author of the 14th Amendment and talked about the exact definitions and meanings as stated by the author himself and it was clear that it was Jefferson’s same meaning and intent with respect to aliens, allegiance, citizenship. And there were many other issues at core and at the periphery that Mark discussed that were all tied back to the author of the 14th Amendment. It was a rock solid exposition by Mark Levin that showed without doubt whaT the 14th Amendment applied to and from where it derived.

    If I can find the broadcast or its transcript I will post a link. I am tied up today so it’s not a priority at the moment sorry.

    The author of the 14th amendment used the meaning that Jefferson stated. That was well-researched and presented by constitutional scholar and lawyer Mark Levin.

    As betty boop says, do your homework.

    The public is not yet fully aware of how the left has bamboozled them in creating a loophole for immigration attorneys to expand their business.

    It will all come to a head over the next year and will result in overwhelming support for legislation to clarify exceptions under the 14th amendment. And the public is not going to be taking much more crap from Justice Kennedy and the other black robed subversives. Trump will knock them out with the FDR playbook if necessary.

    Great great photos of our young brave warriors. Their lives are once again a focus as Donald Trump runs for President as he has shown for decades his love of our veterans.

    Donald Trump can bring the Press to bear responsibility if they run with it as an attack on Women’s Health.

    Donald Trump’s wife Melania is from central Europe where Christianity is still strong and abortion on demand is still viewed as a horror. I will bet she is very conservative on this issue and doesn’t buy for a minute the twisting of ‘abortion’ on demand into a ‘women’s health’ issue.

    I will bet Melania, who bore with Donald a 9-year old son, has been a force in his conversion to pro-life.

    Yes, this is a ‘Show Vote’ because it will be a standalone bill that Obama can easily veto. It won’t be attached to any must-pass bill such as the Highway Bill or the upcoming Budget/CROmnibus Bill.

    And yes, it is correct to point out that Boehner will back this doomed stand-alone bill to distract from a vote to remove him from the Speakership.
