    Implications of Sony 1. The threat posed by unidentified attackers of the Sony system is not limited to the Hollywood corporation but has broad, even existential, implications for homeland defense, for liberty, especially the First Amendment, and for the economy. 2. Our nuclear facilities, our transportation infrastructure, our communication infrastructure, our banking institutions, Wall Street, our media, system of justice and the rule of law, in short, the whole structure which holds our way of life together and keeps us from anarchy are potentially threatened by any expansion or intensification of this threat. 3. The identity of the hackers is...
  • Obama To Unilaterally Normalize Relations With North Korea and ISIS (Satire?)

    President Obama announced plans to normalize diplomatic relations with North Korea and ISIS today, including opening an embassy in both North Korea and the ISIS Caliphate. "We will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed to advance our interests," Obama claimed, "And instead we will begin to normalize relations between our three countries." Specifically, the White House took three major steps today as part of their "New Course on North Korea and ISIS": 1. Initiating discussions to reestablish diplomatic relations, including a U.S. embassy in Pyongyang and Raqqa, and North Korean and ISIS embassies in the United States....

    When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’” Matthew 2:4-6 NIV If anyone tries to make the argument that either Party is not run by Marxists they have to look no further than John Bohner and his...

    Are Boehner, McDonnell, Chief Justice Roberts and other assorted RINOs being systematically blackmailed by WhiteHouse/FBI/CIA/IRS? It would explain a lot. In all seriousness. We know how this President operates. We know how he uses the government agencies. We know he targets enemies. We know the Republican leadership doesn't represent the people who keep voting for it. We've all seen crazy decisions made by them that seem illogical and self-destructive to their party's interests (to say nothing of the country's). We know we're all being spied on. We all know the US is no longer a free country. Has any independent...

The socialists will all scream in unison about national security and suddenly be worried about terrorism and disease entering the country.

    The only ethical response to betrayal by one's own leader is to find a new leader. There have been famous betrayals, but for America one stands out. Benedict Arnold was a general in the American Revolution. Thousands of officers and enlisted followed him, obeyed him, attended to his every word. That was prior to September 21, 1780 and his plot with the British to turn over the critically strategic ground of West Point to the British in exchange for money and position. After his betrayal of his country, it would have been a strange thing indeed to have found his...

    At this moment, Mark Levin is speaking to a breakfast gathering of the American Legislative Exchange Council. Afterward, at 9:30 AM, he will join a Convention of the States Policy Workshop. On his radio show, he has been openly critical of state legislators for not doing their duty, to demand an amendments convention. I can only assume that videos will be available in the near future. The question of the desirability of a convention, so often expressed at FreeRepublic, is entirely separate from the legal issue of congress’ obligations under Article V*.

    Conservatives are not split as to whether or not Obama and his ministers have committed high crimes. We are split over what to do about it. There is no question Obama has gathered arbitrary powers within the executive branch to make, ignore, modify congressional statutes at his whim. His administrative agencies, a shadow army of lawgivers whose identities (sans Gruber) are kept quiet and out of public view, issue dozens of unconstitutional and imperial diktats every year. OTOH, what is certain is that impeachment of American presidents is unfortunately an historic rarity. Taken all together, impeachment is largely viewed as...

    Elections no longer serve their intended purpose, to temporarily empower others to make law on our behalf, subject to constitutional limitations. Obama plainly said last week that the outcome of the midterms meant the exact opposite of its results. He will issue diktats on behalf of those who didn’t vote! His first act was to lead a barbarian invasion across our southern border. A last ditch defense of our republic demands two actions. First, the virus that afflicts our governing body, Barack Obama, must be excised. If not, he will continue his scorched earth demonic march through our God given...

    During much of American history, the President informed Congress of the State of the Union in writing. The Constitution does not mandate that the President give a State of the Union Address to a joint session of Congress. Even under a normal president, the SOTU is a spectacle that elevates the President above Congress and the Supreme Court, which should not be done. Some Supreme Court justices no longer attend the SOTU, partly for this reason. We don't have a normal president but one who acts like he is king. Congress should simply not invite Obama to give the SOTU...

    Obama will not implement his unconstitutional amnesty alone. For one, the director of DHS Jeh Johnson will violate immigration law when he orders his underlings to carry out Obama’s diktats. So, my question is to what extent can Obama’s administrative foot soldiers be held legally responsible for their deeds? Do executive orders protect them? If so, it means the cabinet secretaries hold Obama’s orders as the supreme law of the land, and not the constitution they swore to uphold. Of course the loathsome Eric Holder or his replacement will do nothing. I’m speaking of the next administration, when perhaps men...

    The Overlooked Irony of Jonathan Gruber's Candid Statements MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber has been captured on a number of video recordings stating that the Democrats relied upon and exploited the “stupidity of the American voter” to pass Obamacare. But American voters are not really stupid – not most of them anyway. Even the average Democrat voter is not stupid. Rather, Democrat voters are badly misinformed because they rely on the leftist media for information and opinion. So what Gruber and the Democrats really exploited was not the stupidity of the American voter, but corrupt and dishonest reporting by leftist journalists....

    The sum total of Obama's godless Marxist philosophy is that "privileged" people are too rich while underprivileged people are too poor. He has stated that there should be a limit on how much wealth a person should be allowed to accumulate. And he has stated many times that we'd all be better off if we simply spread the wealth around a little. He also believes that the Constitution is a flawed document that does not go far enough in defining what the government MUST do FOR the people. And he applies these same views to America vs the world. Americans...

    Full title: Lawful and Peaceful Revolution: Congress’ Present Duty to Call a Convention for Proposing Amendments. The means to peacefully amend our form of government is unique to American constitutions, as evidenced in the early state constitutions immediately after independence and the 1777 Articles of Confederation. In an odd twist, it was the amending Article, number XIII of the confederation that sowed the seed of its own destruction. While acknowledging that government must be amenable to change determined by its member states, it required unanimous consent of all states. In theory the Articles of Union were amendable, in practice they...

    With sixty-six of ninety-nine state houses in GOP hands, the prospect for a successful state convention to propose amendments has never been, and likely never will be, better. After all the back and forth at FR, one aspect of Article V hasn't been discussed very much. Although major elements of the national, central government predictably thinks otherwise, the language of Article V doesn't require the states to make identical applications to Congress. There is nothing to remotely infer the states must make identical applications. From Federalist 85, just two thirds of them need to apply and Congress must call a...

    Whenever one looks at the demographics of the population of America, and how it is changing, it always looks very daunting for conservatives. I agree. But I'd like to suggest a strategic solution that is very viable. The Hispanic demographic is ripe for a conservative takeover. The Hispanic population is a largely-Christian and very religious demographic. They are hard-working, very family-oriented, and tend to be moral. There are, of course, exceptions that disprove this rule, but I am speaking of the big-picture Hispanic population. They tend to have fled from countries that embrace socialism and police-state tactics on the part...

    IntroductionFederalism, or States’ Rights, has a long and honored history. To define terms, Federalism involves the assignment of powers between the entities that make up a federation and the federal authority created by those entities to act on behalf of that federation. In the United States Constitution, the people delegated certain enumerated powers to the federal government for the sake of operating a federated union. The 10th Amendment was put in place to insure that the federal government would never assume powers not delegated to it. It reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor...

    As we get worked up over the November mid-term elections, it is worthwhile to step back a moment from politics and take a look at an important facet of our current (as opposed to constitutional) government. The Constitution of 1787 provided Congress with plenty of authority to deal with the likes of a power grabbing FDR, LBJ or Obama. Make no mistake, Obama has UNITARY authority over the executive branch. Every freedom absorbing regulation or crime committed by the EPA, IRS, HHS etc. is his responsibility. The EPA shuts down coal fired electric plants, the IRS shuts down political opposition,...
  • Why the Framers Relied on Constitutional Structure

    A common refrain from Article V state amendment convention opponents is that all we need to do is follow the constitution we have. For the constitution to be implemented as it should ideally be, i.e. as our supreme law, we must send honorable, virtuous men and women to Washington DC to fulfill its purpose and tenets. Unfortunately, this belief falls into the same dangerous solution as offered by Socialists, who tell us socialism will finally work once the “right men and women” assume the reins of power. The reality is that the people we send to DC are like the...
  • Treason Outside the Constitution.

    For the purpose of felony offense, treason in America is famously defined in our constitution. No longer may political opponents be brought before the equivalent of King’s judges and face charges for real or imagined insults or crimes. No, constitutional treason consists of making war against the United States or assisting its enemies. Oh, and unless the traitor confesses, two witnesses must observe the treasonous act. Put aside for a moment the constitutional definition and hurdles to be surmounted in order to obtain a felony conviction. Consider the broad, historic and popular concept of treason, the betrayal of one’s country....

    Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. Joel 2:23 NIV Why are all the liberals crying about ISIS? This is exactly who they wanted running the Middle East for the past 50 years. They are still milking their tolerance stance like they are somehow disconnected from their barbaric death cult with ISIS isn’t Islam. The Marxist still continue to promote the militant arm of liberalism while a smaller and smaller percentage of...
  • By Virtue of Their Silence

    As the November elections approach, we’ve heard nothing but deafening silence from the GOP as to why the electorate should put Congress in its hands. Now, I have nothing against the ages-old stratagem of not interrupting an enemy in the process of making enormous mistakes. But, we’re not simply considering a ‘my team good’ vs. ‘their team bad’ situation, as if the outcome was nothing more than a sporting event to be remembered until the next big game. Some fundamental American freedoms have been under assault for decades, and Obama and his party have accelerated the trend. Where is the...

    Exodus 17:16 He said, “Because hands were lifted up against the throne of theLORD, the LORD will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation.” Anti-war Marxists are cute when they try to act tough. If they could just show the world how to run one of their ultra-tolerant wars then the world could finally understand how wonderful they are. After spending the past trashing Bush’s cowboy diplomacy Obomber decides he needs to bomb some bad guys who are not Islamic back to the stoneage. Problem is, nobody believes a word he says. They have heard his tripe...

    1 Samuel 5:11 So they called together all the rulers of the Philistines and said, “Send the ark of the god of Israel away; let it go back to its own place, or it will kill us and our people.” For death had filled the city with panic; God’s hand was very heavy on it. Who is Barak Hussain kidding? He has no interest in stopping ISIS since ISIS is his army and he is rooting for them to defeat the Middle East and America. He and the Democrat party have been rooting for them for the past fifty years...
  • No One Voted

    Everyone has wondered if his vote would be the one that put a candidate president, senator, . . . county commissioner over the top. We vote more out of habit and tradition, rather than a conviction that “our guy” will work toward restoration of the American republic. Can the November election reverse Obama’s law making, treaty making, his control over spending, and oppression of conservative groups? Who can name the powers Obama does not have? Of course, my title implies something that could never happen. Not a chance. But what if wide swaths of the American people become so disgusted...

    Progress: “Forward or onward movement towards a destination…. Development towards an improved or more advanced condition.” Progressive: “Happening or developing gradually or in stages.” [Compare with Darwinist evolution theory.] “(A person or idea) favouring social reform; Favouring change or innovation.” Progressivist: A person who is “modern, liberal, advanced, forward-looking, forward-thinking, go-ahead, enlightened, enterprising, innovative, up-and-coming, new, dynamic, avant-garde, modernistic, disruptive; radical, left-wing, reforming, reformist, revolutionary, revisionist” So much for definitions provided by the Oxford Dictionary of the English Language . It seems to me there is a whole lot of pure hope (and hype) associated with the idea of “human...
