    Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. What if Ted Cruz could win the General election and everything the experts know about politics is wrong? What if you don’t have to choose a candidate that mirrors the Dem selection and Americans are not as liberal as the media claims it is? The reason these questions are never asked or answered is that conservative voters have been shamed into a corner so they will...
  • The Utter and Complete Failure of the "War on Poverty"

    03/22/2015 1:05:12 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 46 replies
    Over 50 years ago, with much fanfare, President Lyndon Johnson declared "unconditional war" on poverty in America. Since that bold proclamation, we have expended over $22 trillion of our national treasure in this so-called "war". Much of that coming out of the paychecks of working people and transferred to "poor" people by way of welfare, food stamps and a large variety of other government programs. Despite the expenditure of this enormous amount of taxpayer money, the problem of poverty has not gotten better. In fact, it has gotten worse. Even more alarming, the middle class, which was growing rapidly...

She will return to her lucrative prostitution and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. One of my friends said he decided not to pay his taxes to the gummit this year.

In summary, Populist GOP Conservatives have seized control of the local GOP machinery.Here's how it worked: A local Freeper who shall remain nameless invited me and quite a few other like-minded people to the Delegate Selection process meeting sometime last month. We all signed up as delegates. There was no competition, by signing up, we became delegates to a person. Other conservative-minded activists must have done the same thing. I do not know that...

    Let's just get it over with and go for a guaranteed income for all. If you work and earn less than the guaranteed income, the government will pay you the difference. If you don't work, the government will pay you the guaranteed amount anyway. After all, a living wage is a human right. As is healthcare. The government should provide it. As is housing. Food. Clothing. Cell phones. Internet. Transportation. Vacations. But we must all pay our fair share. Those earning less than the guaranteed income will receive a check from the IRS.

    Hillary Clinton's secret email account was HDR22@clintonemail.com.  HDR stands for the initials of her maiden name, Hillary Diane Rodham.  22 is a clever by half reference to Title 22 of the US Code which covers diplomatic law.  The official title of section 22 is Foreign Relations and Intercourse. (see below for link to Title 22)  https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/22 It's a lawyer joke/reference to the Code that covers foreign relations by a lawyer about to become Secretary of State.  Such an account is corrupt and illegal for a Secretary of State.  It is Nixonian.  It was meant to maintain control over information and...

    Five hundred years ago, Machiavelli wrote how governing institutions designed for FreeRepublics were not only unsuited for corrupted republics, they eventually served to enforce tyranny. His prescience was on display yesterday in the US Congress. Designed in 1787 as the consensual law making body of a free people and their states, Congress joined in tyrannical partnership with President Obama. Under cover of the reaction to Benjamin Netanyahu’s fabulous speech against Obama’s nefarious plans for Iran and against peace, the Speaker of the House brought a “clean” DHS funding bill to the floor for a vote. In support of Obama’s lawless...

    [What follows is not legal, accounting, or tax advice, but merely the ruminations of a concerned citizen.] Until Obamacare is repealed, you should, as many have noted, adjust your withholding and estimated tax payments so that you owe a small amount of tax when you file your return, rather than overpay so that you are in a refund position. Assuming that you have done this, then you will have to make a payment when you file your income tax return. It may be that if you are not careful in how you pay your balance due, you may end up...

    To quickly secure our Southern Border, open the construction of the border fence to public and private sponsorship. Crowd source it. If individuals, private organizations, and state or local governments with jurisdiction were allowed to finance construction of one mile segments, build out would occur quickly, leaving only a subset for the Federal Government to finance. What do you think of this as a "power down" solution for a future Republican Administration?

    Before the New DealThe essay Federalism: Yesterday and Today covers Federalism from the Founding period to the modern era, with some attention paid to the Progressive Movement. The Progressives thought that the solutions to America’s problems, which they believed originated with Big Business, would only be found in Big Government as a counterbalance. They believed that Big Government should nudge, or even coerce, Americans to “live properly” – which meant to live as this university-educated elite saw fit. The earlier essay laid out their political and social agendas. The Constitution was an impediment to this agenda, and the Progressives needed...

    In the previous installment of this series, I discussed the place that virtue was understood to have as the basis for all good government, and thus its central position in the minds of the founding generation who established our Constitution. In this article, I would like to explore one of the ramifications of that principle, and discuss how it was applied in our founding document. This is the principle that "divided power is limited power," and why it is important, constitutionally and morally speaking, for power to be both divided and limited. If there is one thing our founders were...

    The accepted dogma among many conservatives is that the way to save what remains of our republic is to vote conservative, constitutionalist, virtuous men and women into office. History shows that to be a blind alley, a dead end that occupies many minds, all the while evil men get away with high crimes. It’s a pity that electoral history going back decades have failed to disprove their belief. Most of the conservative candidates we send to congress go wobbly, rino or worse. Meanwhile, no congressional rats ever turn conservative. Clearly, there is something outside the power of personal character and...

From the moment of our independence, the first question, as posited by Mercy Warren was “what government consistent with the Declaration of Independence can be designed by men too proud for monarchy, too poor for nobility, and it is to be feared, too selfish and avaricious for a virtuous republic?” Republicanism was in our blood. Despite the efforts of the British Crown, all of the states had evolved from quasi-republican colonies....

    American liberty has always been held up by two pillars. Limited government and unlimited resources. What happened in the 1970's was that the USA moved toward a future based on limited resources. (That has naturally pushed the USA in the direction of unlimited government because of the need for the government to adjudicate over relatively scarcer resources.) In order to facilitate the republican vision of limited government its important that pubbies also push for a future of unlimited resources. Toward this end the republican party needs to have a technological vision Greater than Reagan's Star Wars for foreign policy which...

    For several decades, conservatives have lamented the growth of the administrative state, aka the fourth branch of government. Created by congress, directed by the president, and armed with semi-despotic powers, these administrative agencies, by the number of regulations they issue, are the real lawmakers in the once American republic. On paper, the fourth branch is accountable to the reps of the people, the House and Senate of the United States. Liberals love them, for while these agencies are subject to congressional oversight, they are for practical purposes, extensions of the will of the president and are unaccountable to congress.

    The smoke has cleared, and John Boehner, the neo-progressive Obama-enabler, has retained his House Speaker position. Despite a clear and unequivocal message sent by many millions of Americans and conservatives, the dissenters in the House who would have removed Boehner numbered only twenty-five -- twenty-five men and women of conviction, out of two-hundred thirty-six. That is a mere 10.5% of the total Republicans seated in 2015. The reseating of Boehner, who I now call the Crying Cheeto (due to his weepiness and odd orange skin color), guarantees an agenda of appeasement of Democrats, a failure to rein in an out-of-control...

    Today’s reelection of John Boehner proves there is but one party, the Uniparty. Political parties represent the common interests of their members, and to this end the two wings of the Uniparty have far more in common than differences. Their rhetoric often contrasts, but their mutual interests are on display. Witness the fifth year of Obamacare, out of control spending, executive and judicial tyranny. Both wings despise the Tea Party more than each other. The framers’ constitution wisely divided power and provided checks that reached across the branches. Congress can deny appropriations, congress can override presidential vetoes, the senate can...

    John Boehner epitomizes all that is wrong with the Republican Establishment. Boehner has thwarted every plan to overturn or ameliorate the most heinous aspects of Obama's neo-tyrannical rule. These days, I like to call Boehner Crying Cheeto. That is because he is an odd orange- or yellow-color, and cries at the drop of a hat. Boehner started, seemingly, on the right track. He was helpful in engineering the Contract with America in 1994, which helped propel Newt Gingrich to the position of the Chairman of the House. He quickly turned, however, and was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to unseat...

    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...
  • Congress’ Failure to Call an Amendments Convention. (Part VI)

    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*. More than two-thirds of the states have made...

    No topic beats the frequency of politics at Free Republic. Since the national government has become ubiquitous in our lives from beginning to end, it follows we should pay attention to what our masters are doing. Yes, masters. On November 20th, 2014, Obama made clear the midterm trouncing of Hisself and his party would have no effect on his approach to governing. Nearly as disappointing, but not shocking was the limp GOPE response to Obama’s declaration. In a speech designed for all North America, (minus Canadians and Americans) Barack Hussein Obama crossed America’s Rubicon and decreed his lawmaking powers. Dressed...

    Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1 If anyone in America wants to focus on what the Obama Army radicals want than Ferguson is where they will focus, but that is a fool’s errand. This is the same anti-American communist radicals we have seen protesting for the past 50 years and who have put us in the social malaise we are in. Most Americans understand this is another Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackmail orchestrated feigned outrage we have witnessed time and time again....

    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...

    Attorney General Eric Holder plans to to continue a federal investigation into the shooting of robbery suspect Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson after a grand jury found that there was not enough evidence to even indict him. The grand jury after many months, days and hours of seeing and hearing evidence, studying the evidence and hearing testimony found no fault with Officer Wilson regarding the incident. He was doing what police officers are supposed to do, protect the community from crime. Mr. Holder needs to answer to the American People why he thinks it is imperative to pursue this...

    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...

    <p>Obama is sneering at the Republicans again, telling them to "pass a bill" regarding immigration. The Democrats are taunting the Republicans and daring them to do something.</p> <p>It appears that there doesn't need to be another "bill" passed, as this ACT is supposed to prevent Obama from doing exactly what he is doing.</p>

    Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu appeared on O'Reilly the other evening. I don't watch O'Reilly very often as I feel he goes a bit overboard with the "Fair and Balanced" thing. But I'm glad I watched that show. Sheriff Babeu made a comment that might have been lost on the casual observer but brought what's left of my alleged brain to its feet. According to the Sheriff, Obama's immigration executive power grab will cover illegals who have been here for 5 years or more. Sheriff Babeu, Joe Arpio in Maricopa County and many other law enforcement officials out there...
