  • Federalism: Yesterday and Today

    A Publius Essay | 20 October 2014 | Publius
    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...

    The people sense that the federal Leviathan is so ponderous that it cannot cope with a potentially existential health threat. They commonly think that the problem is that the government is so big and multi-tentacled that it cannot communicate, it cannot coordinate, it cannot cope. They are right about the size being a problem but size is not the root problem, it is a symptom. The gross federal Leviathan on is a symptom of an ideology that is all wrong. So long as that ideology could be described as "liberalism" the miraculous tool powers of our free enterprise system and...

    Joshua 22:33 They were glad to hear the report and praised God. And they talked no more about going to war against them to devastate the country where the Reubenites and the Gadites lived. As Republicans our Party should be very cautious against going to war with a Dem leading it. After fourteen years of undermining our attempt to bring Democracy and self rule to Iraq and Trashcanistan why in the world should we trust them to fight the same war again? This is as stupi as it gets and if Iraq or another country falls due to their insistence...

    It's not uncommon for many of us on the Right to refer, metaphorically of course, to liberals using epidemiological terms. Liberalism is infecting our land. Socialism is a disease that harms the body politic. Some have even likened progressives to viruses. Yet, unseemly as such language might appear to some, it's usually been considered hyperbole, exaggerated rhetoric designed to grab attention and perhaps even to arouse an emotional response. But who knew that there would come a day when such talk could be meant literally? Yet, that day has, unfortunately, came to America. As I write this, the Ebola scare...

    We do most things in our lives out of habit. Each of us has various routines that outline our day, family and lives. This isn’t to say we shouldn’t step back now and then to consider change for the sake of improvement, for we should, yet just as the sun follows a predictable yearly path, man has a natural tendency to favor the familiar and regular. So, out of habit I will vote in the mid-term election.

    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

    09/24/2014 6:14:48 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 16 replies
    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...

    09/21/2014 3:00:21 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 31 replies
    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....

    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...

If I’m found guilty, the liberty of one person is affected.

    Studying and understanding demographic trends is critical when predicting generational spending patterns and long-term economic trends in our economy and markets. The Pew Research Center estimates that in 2012, 57 million Americans lived in multi-generational households, which is defined as two or more adult generations under the same roof. This is more than twice the number of people in such arrangements in 1980. To be clear, no one thinks there’s a rush to bring the aging parents of boomers back into the family home.

It’s no ordinary weakling who can turn a once-respected country into an international joke; reduce Congress to a gaggle of sniveling sycophants; turn the world’s finest medical system into a failed third-rate socialist nightmare with a stroke of his pen; shatter our Constitution without attempted recourse by the sons and daughters of frontiersmen and pioneers whose...
  • The 17th Amendment and Consent of the Governed

    06/14/2014 2:02:26 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 64 replies
    From Charles de Montesquieu Spirit of the Laws, “When once a republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils, but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles.” There is a fundamental contradiction in the structure of our government that is responsible for the increasing turmoil we’ve witnessed these past few years. Media pleas to “get along” and compromise reflect snowballing social and political tensions. Unimaginable only a decade ago, our rulers in Washington, DC prepare for societal collapse. Rather than deal with the sickness that afflicts our republic, they respond to the...

    Steny Hoyer, the number two Democrat in the House, said Eric Cantor's Republican primary defeat shows the Republican party to "deeply divided and dysfunctional." First off, probably 98% of Republican incumbents have won their primaries this year, many with challengers, so not sure how one, possibly two, GOP incumbents losing their primaries indicates "deep division." Frankly it's been surprising how conservative/Tea Party and more moderate Republicans have been coalescing around the same candidates for the most part which has come as a surprise to most political analysts. But let's leave that part of Hoyer's statement be and focus on Hoyer...

    With regards to the release of five deadly Taliban generals for one deserter Islam-sympathizing US soldier, the excuse machine has become more and more ludicrous by the day. First Bowe Bergdahl's health was in danger. Next, we heard that Bergdahl was a soldier who served with honor and distinction,, so we had to rescue him.Next, we heard that platoon members who knew Bergdahl, and who criticizing him, were 'Swiftboating' him.Next, we were told that Bergdahls fellow soldiers may be psychopaths. Next, Obama fell back on the old, tired, 'racism/everyone hates me' card.Then, we were told by Obama that he has...

    Now listen to me! Send back your fellow countrymen you have taken as prisoners, for the LORD's fierce anger rests on you." 2 Chron 28:11 My sources inside the White House have given an interesting timeline of how and why the Bergdahl release happened the way it did. This was a bigger strategy to appease the Muslim Brotherhood by releasing some of their key people and satisfy the anti-Gitmo crowd. Inside sources say this really got in motion a couple weeks before Memorial Day. Everyone was called to the Oval Office and had to wait for an extra long prayer...

    What follows is a riveting video and set of pictures regarding the increasing tensions in the South China Sea. We are not likely to know what went on before what is shown in the video that may have provoked the Chinese. But this is what happened in the South China Sea last month when a couple of Veitnames fishing vessels came too close to a Chinese operation: Chinese vessel rams and sinks a Chinese fishing vessel - Youtube Video Let's take a hard look at several of the frames of the video itself. Large Chinese vessel chasing Down a small...

    It is hard to believe, but even after five years of ruling, the Obama administration still reeks of incompetence. It behaves like a novice administration. Every excuse was thrown out, every justification was made, as -- in an increasing panic -- the Obama administration saw what they viewed as a probable publicity coup, become one of the examples of 'terrible optics' we read about. First, we heard from Hagel that Bowe Bergdahl's health was in danger. Oh, wait, no, it wasn't. NEXT. Next, we heard that Bergdahl was a soldier who served with honor and distinction, and therefore, we HAD...

    This weekend, Obama swapped five dangerous Taliban commanders for one questionable American soldier. The five Taliban commanders are: Mullah Mohammad Fazl (Taliban army chief of staff), Mullah Norullah Noori (senior Taliban military commander), Abdul Haq Wasiq (Taliban deputy minister of intelligence), Khairullah Khairkhwa (Taliban governor of the Herat province and former interior minister), and Mohammed Nabi (senior Taliban figure and security official). In return, we got one America soldier who, his peers write, abandoned his post to join the Taliban, and who's Islamic-beard-adorned father has worked tirelessly to release more terrorists. Immediately after this, we have Hagel and Rice 'gaslighting'...

    Confused about Obama's foreign policy? With Clinton's foreign policy? You are likely familiar with the "Hierarchy of Needs" - Things a human MUST have in order survive: for a minute, for an hour, for a day, for a week, for a year, etc. Until those needs are met, he or she cannot look for less important things. Air, water, food, clothing, shelter, etc .. All can get ranked according to a human's most important priorities. Now consider every foreign policy decision, speech, foreign leader, foreign trip (well - except vacations), and foreign award or recognition Obama has chosen since 2008....
