Mitch McConnell to Conservatives: Drop Dead

Originally posted on Socialism is not the Answer:

Free Republic

Yesterday’s Senate vote on the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to succeed Attorney General Eric Holder, was a classic example of why talk among conservatives of forming a third party alternative to the establishment Republican Party will not die.

Not only did the usual jelly-backed Senate Republicans vote to confirm Lynch, they were led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose job is, ostensibly, to be the leader of the conservative opposition to Obama and his lawless progressive agenda.

In moving the Lynch nomination McConnell broke a pre-election promise that no attorney general nominee would be considered in his Senate if that nominee supported Obama’s executive amnesty, something that Lynch testified she supports.

So McConnell’s vote for Lynch was a sort of “go to hell” moment that conservatives should recognize for what it is: Mitch McConnell saying directly to the conservative Republican grassroots and the conservative…

Nullification is a Natural Right & the Rightful Remedy for Unconstitutional Laws

What did our Framers really say we must do when the federal government usurps power?

 Guns_God_Country_Flag

They never said, “When the federal government ignores the Constitution, amend the Constitution.

They never said, “File a lawsuit and let federal judges decide.”

Instead, they advised two manly remedies. We’ll look at one of them – nullification – in this paper. 1

First, let’s look at the Constitution we have.

Our Federal Government has Enumerated Powers Only

With our federal Constitution, we created a federal government. It is:

  • A federation of sovereign States united under a national government ONLY for those limited purposes itemized in the Constitution;
  • With all other powers reserved by the States or the People.

We listed every power we delegated to the federal government: Most of the powers delegated over the Country at large are listed at Article I, §8, clauses 1-16.

Would You Trade Your 2nd Amendment Rights for A Tax Credit?

Originally posted on High Heels and Handguns:

Would you trade your 2nd Amendment rights for a $2,000 tax break?

CT Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro proposed a new bill on Monday that would offer gun owners a tax break for voluntarily turning in their assault weapons.

Also known as the Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our (SAFER) Streets Act, this bill will be reintroduced by DeLauro next week. However, this is not the first time that DeLauro has introduced the SAFER legislation. Originally this bill was introduced in January 2013, but did not make it through with enough votes from the House Republicans.

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”

Study: children are safest when they live with their two married biological parents

Originally posted on Wintery Knight:

Marriage is the safest environment for children Marriage is the safest environment for children

Story from Family Studies.

It says:

Young people are less likely to be victims of crime if they live in two-parent than in single-parent households. That has been a consistent finding of the National Crime Victimization Survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice. But it has been unclear whether the safety advantage stems from married couples living in less dangerous neighborhoods, on average, than unmarried parents, or from other differences in vulnerability between family types. My analysis of recent data from another national survey shows that even when their families live in unsafe neighborhoods, children in married two-parent families are less likely to be exposed to violent crime than children of never-married and divorced parents.

In the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children’s Health, conducted by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, parents of 95,677 children aged 17 and under were…

Obama abducted by aliens

Originally posted on danmillerinpanama:

Today, April fool’s day first, Obama was abducted by aliens from Venus who were concerned about His warlike stance toward the peaceful Islamic Republic of Iran.

Venus

Organizing for Action logo 1

Mars is the god of war, Venus is the goddess of peace. Aliens from Mars had been slightly disturbed that Obama’s efforts to give Iran nuclear weapons might fail, but had seen that her status as a nuclear power was inevitable and hence did nothing. Aliens from Venus were equally pleased with the prospects of Iranian nuclear weapons but were very concerned that Obama, by failing adequately to praise Iranian attempts to extend its hegemony over the entire Middle East and beyond, had retarded those praiseworthy efforts on behalf of true Islamic peace. Hence, they secretly abducted Him this morning as He deplaned from Air Force One following an off-the-books trip to His spiritual birth place in Manchuria.

Since Obama’s abduction and remedial training required only a few minutes He…

DOJ: No Contempt Charges For Lois Lerner – Sen. Menendez Indicted

Originally posted on Nice Deb:

Let’s see. We’ve got two corrupt individuals, here, but two very different treatments under the law.

One of the above did everything she was asked to do and more, kept her mouth shut and destroyed evidence. She gets a gold star.

The other person did bad. He was critical of the administration’s negotiations with Iran and embarrassed the president. He gets indicted.

As Acesays, The masks are all off now.

The DoJ won’t press contempt charges against her for her busted attempt to plead the fifth (Here Is a Statement of Alleged Facts I Want to Introduce Into the Record/Having Done That, I Now Say I Don’t Want to Speak for the Record).

Supposedly the DoJ is still considering bringing some sort of charges against her over the Tea Party Targeting.

(Pssssst: There will be no meaningful charges. You read it here, first!)

As for Democrat Bob Menendez, (who…

Obama and the Constitution

Originally posted on Ohio Caring Convervatism:

The Federalist Papers were written by Hamilton, Madison and Jay, who participated greatly in drafting the document that was the initial one approved by representatives of the people, followed by the amendments to it. Everything else is merely laws that can be changed by the legislature.
Madison wrote in Federalist # 48 that “…the powers properly belonging to one of the departments ought not be directly and completly administered by either of the other deparments”

Presently we have a chief executive who attempts to govern this nation by his “phone and his pen”. He fails to enforce the laws passed by the Congress based on his “prosocutial discretion”.  He alters laws passed by the legislature without any comumption – – reference the “Obama Care”.

This man is so out of control that the nation may not be able to survive another one and one half years of his residence in…

Hypocrisy Alert: International Bureaucracy with Tax-Free Employees Is Pushing a Big Energy Tax on American Consumers

Originally posted on International Liberty:

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is a Paris-based international bureaucracy with the self-proclaimed mission to “promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.”

But if there was a truth-in-advertizing requirement, the OECD would instead say that its mission is to “promote policies that will increase the size, scope and power of government.”

Here are just a few examples of statist policies that are directly contrary to the interests of the American people.

The OECD has allied itself with the nutjobs from the so-called Occupy movement to push for bigger government and higher taxes in the United States.

The bureaucrats are advocating higher business tax burdens, which would aggravate America’s competitive disadvantage.

The OECD is pushing a “Multilateral Convention” that is designed to become something akin to a World Tax Organization, with the power to

Obama kisses Iranian ass … They respond … “Death to America!”

Wow! Good job Barack. Three days after Obama’s ass kissing, this video comes out …

Obama is either insane or delusional … or both. I think giving comfort to our enemy is treason.
What a disgrace.

Greece, Marxism, and Paul Krugman

Originally posted on International Liberty:

I don’t know which group is more despicable, Greek politicians or the voters who elected them. In both cases, they think they’re entitled to other people’s money.

But since the “other people” in this case happen to live in nations such as Germany and Finland, and those folks don’t want to write blank checks to a bunch of moochers and looters, Greece faces a difficult choice.

Either the Greeks behave like adults and rein in their bloated public sector. Or they throw a tantrum, which presumably means both a default on payments to bondholders and a return to the unstable drachma currency.

My guess is they’ll eventually go with the latter option.

But maybe there’s hope for Greece. One of the Prime Minister’s chief economic advisers, an out-of-the-closet communist, has announced his resignation. Here are a few of the details from a story in the EU Observer
