Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth.

First Inaugural Address of George Washington...April 30, 1789

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Abraham Lincoln said:

"In this age, and in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it nothing can suceed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions."

James Madison Declared

The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE.

Clever White House plan to drag out Sestak controversy even longer

President Obama

It Would Help If Your Administration Would Actually Read Arizona’s New Law.

Facing a plague of murders, kidnappings and criminal mayhem, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a simple, no-nonsense bill into state law that would help secure Arizona's southern border.

Within hours, even though he had not read the law, Barack Obama had the audacity to call it "misguided" and "irresponsible." He said: “And I want everyone, American and Mexican, to know my administration is taking a very close look at the Arizona law. We’re examining any implications...." Obama added: "I’ve directed my Justice Department to ... look very carefully at the language of this law to see whether it comports both with our core values and existing legal standards...."

"Taking a very close look...?" ... has anyone in the administration even bothered "to look very carefully at the language of this law?”

It appears not.

Attorney General Eric Holder confessed recently that he has not read the Arizona law; and yet, his "Justice Department" is going to fight it tooth-and-nail. The head of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, admits that she has not read it; and yet, ICE is indicating that it will not cooperate with Arizona on enforcement of the law.

How can you "examine" the "implications" of a law if you refuse to read it?

Of course, if they had bothered to read it, perhaps they would understand that Arizona’s law closely mirrors the federal immigration statutes already on the books. The difference is that Arizona, unlike the federal government, actually plans to enforce it.

Senator Sessions even went so far as to accuse the Obama Administration of “nullifying existing law.” Senator Sessions is understating the argument. The Obama Administration isn't simply "nullifying the law." The Obama Administration is actively fighting it.

And this arrogant and egregious dereliction of duty must stop... TODAY.

The Chains that keep us free

Sounds strange that "chains" should "keep us free"; sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it. Nothing however could be truer. George Washington and the Founding Fathers looked at a centralized government as a potential for great good or great evil; just like human nature there is the potential for doing great good or being the instrument for great evil. The question was how to constrain the evil and expand the good. The answer was that the government had to be harnessed by the people who where handing over to it the permission to rule and enforce in their name; in other words to govern them.

The best answer they came up with was the Constitution of the United States. It harnessed the powers of the Federal Government within the confines of a strictly interpreted Constitution. If the Constitution was malleable and easily changeable it would destroy the freedom it was designed to preserve.

Washington said:

"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence - it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
(Quoted in Jacop M. Braude, Lifetime Speaker's Encyclopedia, 2 vols. , Englewood Cliffs, N. J.: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1962, 1:326)

National Debt & Generational Debts

Common sense, a commodity that the Founders of our democratic republic possessed was responsible for their attitude toward a national debt. With wisdom born of experience they knew that the debts of a nation are no different than the debts of an individual or family. For dire circumstances such as war or natural disasters Article 1 of the Constitution allows the nation to borrow monies needed. However it was a matter of utmost importance that the debt be paid as soon as possible so that the nation could prosper.

This is reflected in what Thomas Jefferson said:
I, however, place economy among the first and most important of republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.
(Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 15:47.)

Why is Mr. Obama pursuing a course 180 degrees opposite to what Thomas Jefferson recommended? Ask yourself that question; any rational answers?

Mr. Jefferson made a particular point about the immorality of passing on debt to ones children:

"That we are bound to defray (the wars) expenses within our own time, and unauthorized to burden posterity with them, I suppose to have been proved in my former letter... We shall all consider our-selves morally bound to pay them ourselves; and consequently within the life (expectancy) of the majority ... We must raise, then ourselves the money for this war, either by taxes within the year or by loans ; and if by loans, we must repay them ourselves, proscribing forever the English practice of perpetual funding. (Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 13:357-358.)

Why does the administration and congress seem to have forgotten these words of wisdom?

American Exceptionalism....believe it!!!

James Madison may have summed it up better than any of the other Founding Fathers when he wrote:

Happily for America, happily we trust FOR THE WHOLE HUMAN RACE, they (the Founding Fathers) pursued a new and more noble course. They accomplished a revolution which has no parallel in the annals of human society. They reared the fabrics of governments which have no model on the face of the globe. They formed the design of a great Confederacy, which it is incumbent on their successors to improve and perpetuate. (Federalist Papers, No. 14, pp. 104-5; emphasis added.)
Sorry Mr. Obama but I do not agree with you; we are EXCEPTIONAL and you as President should know this in your soul.

Mr.Obama didn't you know or did you forget?

THE PROPER ROLE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO PROTECT EQUAL RIGHTS, NOT PROVIDE EQUAL THINGS. This was one of the fundamental principles that the Founding Fathers knew had to be used, based on reason and the natural law, in the Constitution of the United States. They understood that even though it was in vogue in Europe, at the time, (and even today) the act of taking from the "rich" and giving to the "poor" contained a glaring fallacy.

That glaring fallacy was and still is that the people cannot empower their government with powers which they themselves do not have a natural lawful right to themselves. A proper assignment of power given to the government by the people would be the creation of a fire department; to protect life and their property. An example of an improper granting of a power to a government would be for example; the government surveys families in an area and finds that 50% of the families in this area has two TVs and the other 50% has none. Then in the name of beneficence or call it warped "social justice", a new name for Marxism, the government creates an immoral but legal law that orders the families with two TV to give one of their TVs to a family with none all in the name of "spreading the wealth and goods around" in an equitable manner. The problem with this is that the "people" do not have the right to empower their government with this power to confiscate personal property and give it to those who don't have it; not if you believe in natural law and reason. Only anarchists or Marxists would propose such a redistribution of the wealth and goods that belong to other people who obtained it legally. If you gave it to your neighbor in an act of problem. Marxism, social justice and spreading the wealth around can be dangerous because the devil is in the details of how it is done. Stay allert!

Advice to Pres. Obama from Ben Franklin & others

"Think what you do when you run in debt; you give to another power over your liberty." ...Benjamin Franklin

Thomas Jefferson wrote:
"The maxim of buying nothing without the money in our pockets to pay for it would make our country one of the happiest on earth. Experience during the (Revolutionary) war proved this; and I think every man will remember that,under all the privations it obliged him to submit to during that period, he slept sounder and awoke happier than he can do now." Ford, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 4:414.)

President Washington made it perfectly clear when he said in an address to Congress: "No pecuniary consideration is more urgent than the regular redemption and discharge of the public debt; on none can delay be more injurious, or an economy of time more valuable."

President Obama, I guess you don't subscribe to these fundamental principals of these Founding Fathers of our country... that is a shame that will haunt us and our great, great grandchildren.

Well maybe the PCSO force has arrived in the U.S.

Well if you have not heard by now the Pentagon (AKA...PCSO?) see the second previous blog, in disguise has dis-invited Reverend Franklin Graham to speak at the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer event; the Reverend Graham is the honorary chairman of the task force that runs the National Day of Prayer. I guess First Amendment Rights don't mean much to the "big boys", the ones with the stars on their uniforms,
at the Pentagon....even though our soldiers are fighting and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for these rights for the citizens of these countries.

Shame on any military, civilian or even presidential individual (emphasis of the lower case p in presidential on purpose) who singularly or as a group slapped all evangelical all Christians and believers in Jesus Christ. Bad decision boys! It will come back again and again and haunt you.

Reflections for Legislators and Supreme Court

Many people today fear the Federal Government has gone beyond the powers that the Constitution has vested in it. Here is a reflection from James Madison, one of the Founding Fathers of this country.

"The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE." (Federalist Papers, No. 46, p. 294; emphasis added.)

So they had similar problems way back in 1776; our American experiment continues and with Providence and the spirit of the American People it will continue and improve as long as we keep to the principals that this Republic was founded on.

Are we next for the PCSO force in the U.S.?

A 42 year old Baptist street preacher in Workington, Cumbria, UK, who for years has preached Christianity is arrested and thrown into a jail cell for reading the word of God, the Bible. The arrest was made after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) heard his reciting a number of "sins" referred to in the Bible; among these included blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships. The PCSO charged him with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the U.K's Public Order Act. Mr. McAlpine was taken to the police station and confined in a cell for several hours. He was deprived of his freedom and treated like a common criminal.

The Public Order Act was introduced in 1986 to tackle violent rioters and football hooligans but now is being used to stop religious free speech.

Are we on the administration's agenda to have "special laws" (unconstitutional ones) for special groups that will add badly needed votes (voting blocks) to win close elections? Somehow I feel that we are; how about you?
