Exactly what Constitution is the Federal Government using?

T-Room

Since the 2008 Presidential primary, millions of citizens have questioned the duly elected President’s eligibility. Hundreds of thousands of American’s have turned to the United States Constitution for answers. Dozens upon dozens of lawsuits have been filed challenging Obama’s eligibility, and with every new day more challenges are filed. Others have turned to their state’s Attorney General to investigate election fraud To date, six state Attorney’s General have received these Memorandum of Complaints. They simply request the state Attorney General, the People’s Attorney, to investigate whether the Democrat Corporation placed an ineligible candidate on the “D” line of state ballots. Remember, we the citizen’s paid for that election ballot.

Patriotic American’s, representing 48 states, held the Third Continental Congress at Pleasant Run in St. Charles, Illinois, from November 11 — 22, 2009. These American Patriots paid their own expenses, took time off from work, left their families and worked night and day to develop Articles of Freedom for you, your family, your friends, your co-workers. Read them. They did a fabulous job representing “We the People”.

Then their is citizen Bob Campbell who heads up The American Grand Jury. He and his fellow Patriots have made great strides informing American Citizens of their rights granted to them under the Constitution. He’s assisted numerous citizens in holding American Grand Juries across the country, and then files the Presentments to the respective court. Patriot groups are growing by leaps and bounds. Check out Resistnet, IrateNationFreeRepublic to name a few. The American Patriotic movement is flourishing all over the blogosphere, but if you are one of those American’s who rely on Mainstream news mediums, well, sadly you wouldn’t know about, let alone understand, who we are and why we’re fighting so hard for you.

A deafening silence, a silence so loud, so powerful from the Fourth Estate has resulted in a monstrous clash between the American Patriot and the American Sheeple. The controlled mainstream media outlets dare not touch the subject of Obama’s eligibility. Rather, if they cover it at all, they frame the subject in terms of ridicule using inflammatory rhetoric and casting all who question as crazy, nut jobs, conspiracy theorists, birthers and so on. From Glenn Beck to Keith Olbermann to The New York Times new About.com (h/t CitizenWells.wordpress.com), Washington Post to the LA Times, all American patriots hear is how stupid we are or out of touch we are.

Are we? Could they be trying to tell us something we don’t want to hear?

As an American Patriot, when you’re in the trenches reading, writing, debating, learning and challenging these Mainstream rascals it’s a difficult to see the rope dangling above your head to escape to a different place. A place to breathe in some fresh air, feel the warmth of the sun bathe upon your skin, and to see and hear the noises of everyday life surrounding you. You realize how mentally fatigued you are, how heavy your heart is and you remember how life used to be, that is, before the 2008 Presidential Primary.  You sit on a grassy knoll, you lay down and you rest. Thoughts start swirling around in your mind when suddenly you remember that rope. Why did this appear? Why did I grab onto it and climb my way out? You ponder this thought for awhile, and the next thing you know you find yourself at a bend in the road that just might point you toward that ray of hope so many of us are desperate find.

Could such a road lead you and me to the truth? Well, here’s a radical thought. Could it be that the Federal Governement is not governed by the U.S. Constitution but rather the Corporation? Could it be possible that a former Congress threw the U.S. Constitution away? Could we actually be being ruled by the U.S. Corporation all the while believing we were being governed by the Constitution? Is this why Congress only placates “We the People” so as to remain in power? Is this why “We the People” don’t trust Congress? Could this answer the question so many have asked “why is Congress so out of touch with the People?” You tell me.

In 1801, the Sixth Congress, 2nd Session, Chapter 15, An Act Concerning the District of Columbia (a) also known as The Act of 1801, was passed accepting land ceded by the state of Maryland and the Commonwealth of Virginia to permanently form the seat of the government for the United States. Yet, in 1871, the Forty-First Congress, Session III, Chapter 62, passed “The Act of 1871 forming a corporation [in the District of Columbia] called THE UNITED STATES. The corporation, OWNED by foreign interests, moved in and shoved the original Constitution into a dustbin.“  Do yourself the favor and read both Acts and then read the highlighted link telling us the Act of 1871 appears to have changed everything our Founding Fathers fought for.

Am I wrong? I don’t know, you tell me?

The seating of the government of the United States in 1801 gave rights to the citizens of the District of Columbia but The Act of 1871 began the process of eroding said rights. Geez, Washington DC’s license plates read “Taxation without Representation.”

Napolitano: Supreme Court to Strike Down Obamacare

Newsmax

By: David A. Patten

President Barack Obama is one of the worst presidents ever in terms of respecting constitutional limitations on government, and the states suing the federal government over healthcare reform “have a pretty strong case” and are likely to prevail, according to author and judicial analyst Andrew P. Napolitano.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV’s Ashley Martella, Napolitano says the president’s healthcare reforms amount to “commandeering” the state legislatures for federal purposes, which the Supreme Court has forbidden as unconstitutional.

“The Constitution does not authorize the Congress to regulate the state governments,” Napolitano says. “Nevertheless, in this piece of legislation, the Congress has told the state governments that they must modify their regulation of certain areas of healthcare, they must surrender their regulation of other areas of healthcare, and they must spend state taxpayer-generated dollars in a way that the Congress wants it done.



“That’s called commandeering the legislature,” he says. “That’s the Congress taking away the discretion of the legislature with respect to regulation, and spending taxpayer dollars. That’s prohibited in a couple of Supreme Court cases. So on that argument, the attorneys general have a pretty strong case and I think they will prevail.”

Napolitano, author of his just-released “Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power, and Deception in American History” and a Fox News senior judicial analyst, is the youngest Superior Court judge ever to attain lifetime tenure in the state of New Jersey. He served on the bench from 1987 to 1995.

Napolitano tells Newsmax that the longstanding precedent of state regulation of the healthcare industry makes the new federal regulations that much more problematic.

“The Supreme Court has ruled that in areas of human behavior that are not delegated to the Congress in the Constitution, and that have been traditionally regulated by the states, the Congress can’t simply move in there,” Napolitano says. “And the states for 230 years have had near exclusive regulation over the delivery of healthcare. The states license hospitals. The states license medications. The states license healthcare providers whether they’re doctors, nurses, or pharmacists. The feds have had nothing to do with it.

“The Congress can’t simply wake up one day and decide that it wants to regulate this. I predict that the Supreme Court will invalidate major portions of what the president just signed into law…”

The judge also says he would rate President Obama as one of the worst presidents in terms of obedience to constitutional limitations.

“I believe we have a one party system in this country, called the big-government party,” Napolitano says. “There is a Republican branch that likes war and deficits and assaulting civil liberties. There is a Democratic branch that likes welfare and taxes and assaulting commercial liberties.

“President Obama obviously is squarely within the Democratic branch. The president who had the least fidelity to the Constitution was Abraham Lincoln, who waged war on half the country, even though there’s obviously no authority for that, a war that killed nearly 700,000 people. President Obama is close to that end of lacking fidelity to the Constitution. He wants to outdo his hero FDR.”

For those who oppose healthcare, the Fox legal expert says, the bad news is that many of the legal challenges to healthcare reform will have to wait until 2014, when the changes become fully operational.

Until then, there would be no legal case that individuals had been actually harmed by the law. Moreover, Napolitano says it takes an average of four years for a case to work its way through the various federal courts the final hearing that’s expected to come before the Supreme Court.

Without the Consent of the Governed

Canada Free Press

Obama’s Unconstitutional Health Care Treachery is just the beginning of a dark and sinister age in American history. Now that Obama & Co. have found the legislative mechanisms to subvert the Law of the Land on the federal health care grab, they intend to rush forward with the passage of “financial reform”—“energy reform”—and “Immigration reform”—none of which are any type of “reform.”

// <![CDATA[//
// <![CDATA[//

All of these measures are massive federal power and resource grabs, moving the vast resources of the United States from private sector control to public sector control. It is called socialism, by way of democratic process.

All of it will be done over the next few months without the consent of the governed, before the November election when leftists expect to lose their fifteen minutes of power in the voting booth. They plan to advance their anti-American agenda no matter how many stand opposed, and in such a manner that it can never be reversed.

As I pointed out very clearly in my most recent column, for any federal law to be “constitutional,” it must meet this minimum standard…

  1. It must be within the limited federal powers enumerated in the Constitution
  2. It must enjoy the support of the vast majority of “the governed,” from which all federal powers are derived
  3. It must not infringe upon the unalienable individual rights of any citizen
  4. It must not infringe upon the rights of any state, protected by the Tenth Amendment
  5. It must become law by way of legal legitimate legislative process

Obama’s Health Care treachery violates all five of these standards and as a result, it cannot be allowed to stand. They are just getting started. This is about much more than health care, yet health care is where the people must put a stop to all of it.

How the rest of the world runs is of no consequence to Americans. In the United States of America, “the people” are the government, and our federal government derives every ounce of its power strictly from the “consent of the governed.” Our elected officials are not Kings – they are “servants.”

Dems Shift Blame to American People

Red County

Ever notice how Pres. Obama and the liberals in Congress go to great lengths to place the onus of their own reckless spending on to the American people, or the prior administration?  It’s as if these shameless politicians are declaring that the people made them go on a spending spree.

Although spending was quite high during the George Bush years, two wars were being fought, and the spending was nowhere near  the astronomical borrowing and deficit spending currently underway with the Dems.  Democrats often claim that the American people want them to lead, and have a burning desire for change.  Really?

Since when did the American people request bailouts for Chrysler, GM, and several major financial institutions?  When did they cry out for a stimulus plan (ARRA), a bloated budget, or the raising of the debt ceiling?  Where are all these Americans who demanded that our federal government take over health care?  Did the people plead with the Feds to escalate deficit spending, and the national debt?

I bet we’d be hard pressed to find many Americans who endorse spending trillions of non-existent dollars on highly dubious Ponzi schemes.  Yet the Dems continue the same old mantra that they are only doing what the people want.  If that is the case, then why do the Dems exhort businesses and individuals to live within their means, while the current administration in D.C. does the opposite?  Indeed, if the Dems are acting in the interests of Americans, why has the gargantuan spending done little to spur the economy?

Crisscrossing America, Obama is selling Obamacare as a real bargain, as he trots out folks who have suffered due to a lack of insurance.  He knows full well that anyone who wants to be insured could be if interstate commerce laws allowed folks to shop for health insurance around the country, as they can with other types of insurance.  Moreover, medical care could be more affordable if there were fewer regulations on health care delivery by doctors and hospitals.  Granted, doctors and hospitals could police themselves better by curtailing unnecessary procedures and tests.

Whenever the Dems assert that they are working for the American people, be very wary indeed.  What they really mean is that they are laboring to enhance their own control and power over the American people, in order to perpetuate a state of  government dependency.  People don’t make the government spend, because in most cases the Dems ignore the will of most Americans.  Indeed, most folks want the government to get off their backs, and stick to the liberty enhancing core principles that the founders enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Obama gives radical labor lawyer rejected by Senate recess appointment

Washington Examiner

This really isn’t a big surprise, as Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis hinted it was coming. But President Obama has given Craig Becker, a former top attorney for the SEIU and AFL-CIO, a recess appointment to the National Labor Relations Board.

Becker’s nomination was held-up on a bipartisan vote by the Senate last month, with two Democrats crossing the aisle to oppose his nomination. Essentially, the argument against Becker is that he’s far too radical.

Back when he was a law professor, Becker wrote paper for the Minnesota Law Review where he outlined a specific plan for dramatically remaking regulatory landscape on labor issues via the National Labor Relations Board.

And as a lawyer, Becker once argued that “employers should have no right to be heard in either a representation case or an unfair labor practice case” that comes before the NLRB. Lately, Becker has been a staunch advocate of card check legislation which would eliminate secret ballots in union elections.

There’s no compelling reason for such a radical advocate to be given such an important post. Aside from the problem of the fox guarding the hen house, it just reeks of political payback. Unions spent $400 million getting Democrats elected in 2008 and now Obama’s going to stack the deck in their favor, killing jobs and sticking it to the taxpayer in the process.

Biden says Obama’s troubles rooted in failures of Bush years

Dallas News

Vice President Joe Biden, in a visit to George W. Bush’s hometown, said Friday that President Barack Obama’s ability to sell his agenda to Americans has been hampered by the failures of his predecessor.

Speaking at two Dallas fundraisers, Biden said the Bush administration soured the American people on government and politics with its out-of-control spending, severe job losses and mishandling of two wars.

“I did not anticipate the degree of cynicism that had been reached by the American public,” he said during a lunchtime event at the home of Dallas lawyer Russell Budd. “The greatest damage the Bush administration did – more damaging than the recession, their foreign policy – was the loss of faith the American people had in their government to be able to deliver on anything.”

Biden had similar remarks at a fundraiser hosted by Democratic donor Naomi Aberly at her northwest Dallas home.

“We inherited a cynical republic,” he told the room full of Democrats there. “And I can’t blame them. Eight years of collapse, eight years of being misled about wars.”

Republicans were unmoved, accusing Biden and the administration of ignoring the public’s dismay with the recently approved health care legislation.

“Perhaps Vice President Biden could take some time to listen to ordinary Americans and learn that tickets to his fundraisers aren’t the only thing Texans cannot afford,” the Republican National Committee said in a written statement.

But Biden, along with Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, praised the health care law as a landmark victory for the American people.

“This is the biggest thing I’ve ever been involved in in my political lifetime,” Durbin said at the Budd fundraiser. “It’s a new day. It’s a new day we can’t lose.”

The fundraisers, one for the Democratic National Committee and the other for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, included local candidates who will be on November’s general election ballots.

Most analysts predict that Republicans, partly because of the energy generated from the heath care debate, could win big over Democrats in House and Senate races this fall. But Biden predicted Democratic candidates would be attractive to voters.

“The reports of the demise of the Democratic Party in November are premature,” he said. “Every Democratic candidate, including one person here running for Congress, will have a case to make.”

The candidate in the room was Democrat Grier Raggio, who is running against incumbent Republican Pete Sessions – a prime target for Democrats because he runs the GOP’s House campaign committee.

Biden said he and Obama didn’t run just to hang on to political office.

“I didn’t become vice president to stay for eight years,” he said. “I came to make a difference.”

He added: “We don’t think this is about the next election. It’s about the next generation. If we take care of the next generation, we’ll win the next election.”

Biden, known for verbal gaffes, was recently caught on a microphone telling Obama that passage of the health care bill was a “big [expletive] deal.”

The phrase was commonplace at both fundraisers. At least one person wore a BFD button.

Biden didn’t refer to the incident, but before he left Budd’s home, he said, “You’re a big deal,” leaving out the curse word.

AP: Say, guess what we just found in ObamaCare!

Hot Air

Congress passed the bill without knowing what was in it. Barack Obama signed it without reading it.  Now it looks as though the Associated Press reported on ObamaCare without comprehending its content.   Readers will have to scroll far down to discover that the elimination of a key tax break that kept retirees on company prescription-medication plans will mean dumping millions of seniors onto Medicare — and that the AP ignored it until now:

The health care overhaul will cost U.S. companies billions and make them more likely to drop prescription drug coverage for retirees because of a change in how the government subsidizes those benefits.

In the first two days after the law was signed, three major companies — Deere & Co., Caterpillar Inc. and Valero Energy — said they expect to take a total hit of $265 million to account for smaller tax deductions in the future.

With more than 3,500 companies now getting the tax break as an incentive to keep providing coverage, others are almost certain to announce similar cost increases in the weeks ahead as they sort out the impact of the change.

Figuring out what it will mean for retirees will take longer, but analysts said as many as 2 million could lose the prescription drug coverage provided by their former employers, leaving them to enroll in Medicare’s program.

Over the past year, I’ve repeatedly warned about the dangers of static tax analysis.  That process considers changes in tax policy without considering its impact on behavior.  The closure of this “loophole,” as Robert Gibbs called it yesterday, is a perfect example of this stunted thinking.

The Democrats in Congress argued that they would gain $5.4 billion in revenue by eliminating the tax break enacted in the 2003 Medicare Part D program as an incentive for businesses to keep their retirees out of the Medicare system.  Instead, they have given businesses a reason to dump their retirees out of the private networks and into the Part D system now.  Not only will the expected tax revenues never appear, but now we will have to spend a lot more money covering those prescriptions out of public funds.  The seniors in these programs will suffer most of all, as the Part D coverage is vastly inferior to the private plans offered by businesses in the private sector.

Who could have foreseen this?  Well, businesses have been trying to get attention to this problem for months, as the AP somewhat belatedly reports:

Industry groups say they lobbied hard against the change in the tax rules before it was added to the health care law over the winter.

“It was in all of our letters and communications that went up to the Hill, and the companies were heavily involved in that,” said Dena Battle, a tax specialist with the National Association of Manufacturers.

Nationwide, companies would take a $14 billion hit on their financial statements if all of the roughly 3,500 companies receiving the subsidies continued to do so, according to a study by Towers Watson, a human resources consulting firm.

For months, businesses have warned about the problem, and for months, Democrats have claimed this clause as a $5.4 billion revenue source.  One might think that the media would be interested in puncturing some bad assumptions.  Apparently not.
