A President is not a King and States Must Make Sure of It

Our nation’s first president, George Washington, under the newly formed Constitution in 1789, found himself in an uncomfortable position.  As the nation’s first Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief he knew the delicate ground between strength and tyranny. Fearing any comparison to the monarchal government from which America had just been liberated, Washington took care to avoid any physical or symbolic references to European monarchs.  When the Senate proposed that he be called by the Read more […]

Big Brother Just Got Bigger: Doctors Can Report You to the FBI

It would be one thing if this new removal of a basic privacy right had been debated and hammered out between different parties. Instead, it was imposed by a gun-prohibitionist President based on calculating what he could get away with. Basically, now if you have a mental health crisis you have to worry about a doctor reporting you to the Feds. According to The Hill, “Rules eased on providing mental health records for background checks.” The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for Read more […]

Congress Will Do Nothing about Obama’s Unconstitutional Gun Legislation

We have had plenty of time to be ready for Barack Obama’s executive orders. So what is Congress’ plan? Virtually nothing. The gun issue comes up 19 seconds into the video. Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) says that Barack Obama’s executive orders are unconstitutional. So what will Congress do? They will litigate. As the discussion explains well, Congress can’t count on the courts and, even if the judges follow the Constitution, it will take a long time for the courts to finally Read more […]

More Americans Believe the Second Amendment is Our Safety than Those Who Think It is a Threat

This Washington Post story tells us what you probably already know (especially if you have been reading this blog): “Obama plans curbs on guns.” President Obama will press ahead with a set of executive actions on guns next week despite growing concerns in the United States over terrorism that have dampened some Americans’ enthusiasm for tighter firearms restrictions. The president will meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch to finalize a series of new gun control measures and will Read more […]

Immigrants Now Searching for U.S. Border Patrol instead of Evading

The New York Times reports, “Number of Migrants Illegally Crossing Rio Grande Rises Sharply.” The numbers of migrants crossing the Rio Grande illegally have risen sharply in recent weeks, replaying scenes from the influx of Central American children and families in South Texas last year. Once again, smugglers are bringing hundreds of women and children each day to the Mexican banks of the river and sending them across in rafts. In a season when illegal crossings normally go down, “The numbers Read more […]

DHS Caught Planning to Ignore Court Orders to Obey Immigration Law

The Daily Signal reports, “Leaked DHS Memo Reveals Attempt to Skirt Immigration Law; Senate Republicans Demand Explanation.” Senate Republicans are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain a leaked agency memo reportedly revealing that federal officials are planning to evade a federal court order barring pieces of President Barack Obama’s executive immigration actions. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, led eight others on the committee in a letter sent to DHS Secretary Read more […]

Dictatorial Obama Will Use Executive Powers to Restrict Gun Acquisitions

Once again, since Congress won’t give dictatorial Obama what he wants, he will just take it. A man who is willing to violate the Second Amendment is obviously not going to have any respect for the separation of powers, so Barack Obama plans to restrict guns all by himself. In doing so, he is not just going to war against Congress and the Constitution, but against American society in general, which clearly prefers that the government stay out of the way. According to the Washington Post, “Obama Read more […]

Sixteen States Reject Energy Regulations that Will Destroy Their Economies

The states reject energy regulations that Barack Obama is imposing on the nation. Reading the Associated Press story, I wonder how Barack Obama thinks he can get away with this. Does he want a Republican to win the presidency in 2016? Every Republican candidate should spell out how energy prices are going to be jacked up by the President’s use of executive authority. Sixteen states want nothing to do with it. The campaign to stop President Barack Obama’s sweeping emissions limits on power Read more […]

Barack Obama Not Finished Impoverishing Americans for Planet

The President is going to impose still more burdens on energy, impoverishing Americans even faster. Newser.com reports, “Obama to Unveil New Climate Change Plan: Officials.” President Obama will impose even steeper cuts on greenhouse gas emissions from US power plants than previously expected, senior administration officials said today, in what the president called the most significant step the US has ever taken to fight global warming. A year after proposing unprecedented carbon dioxide Read more […]

Obama Administration Removes a Remaining Level of Accountability

How can you expect accountability if you have to ask the permission of the person being held accountable? Here’s another heroic deed performed by the most transparent Administration in history. The Washington Post reports, “Justice Dept. watchdog blasts his own agency for blocking access to wiretaps, grand jury cases and says his job is undermined.” The Obama administration has ruled that inspectors general have to get permission from the agency they’re monitoring for access to wiretaps, Read more […]

DHS Ignored Judge’s Order and Granted Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants

It seems that an executive order for amnesty trumps a judge’s ruling on the Constitution. From the Washington Times: “DHS broke judge’s order, approved amnesty applications despite injunction.” President Obama’s lawyers admitted to a federal judge late Thursday that they had broken the court’s injunction halting the administration’s new deportation amnesty, issuing thousands of work permits even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen had ordered the program stopped. The stunning admission, filed Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Plans to Change “Religious Beliefs” for Abortion

Having seen what the Obama Administration has done for homosexuality to corrupt marriage, Hillary Clinton plans big things for abortion when she wins the Oval Office. Here is the quotation. I don’t think my interpretation is inaccurate at all. Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political Read more […]
