I think back on the days of my childhood, days when all the kids in the neighborhood I lived in would get together for a game of stickball. All colors, all nationalities, everyone would play. Some better than others, but everyone would play until our mothers called us home at dark for dinner. The only break would come when the ice cream truck came by, and if someone didn’t have the dime for ice cream, someone else would buy it for them.
Times have changed, but the basic principles of how I was brought up have stuck with me. It doesn’t make for a tranquil way of life these days. There is a choice which must be made by every one of our citizens. Do we keep those old values, or do we toss them to the side for a more modern way of living our lives?
For me, I’ve had enough. There are certain things I am tired of:
It also could empower the President, in executive agreements with other countries, to admit more foreign workers into the United States—without ever coming to Congress for approval.”
The TPP or Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty is being passed in secret, so secret, congress has to sign in to read it, can make no notes or take anything away, and sees only some of the agreement since much of it is redacted.
The American people can know NOTHING. These trade deals in the past have taken jobs from Americans and this one proves to be the most massive and most imposing with copyright restrictions, regulations, and outsourcing that are out of our control once TPP is signed.
In order to fast-track, Congress has to agree to dissemble their powers and turn them over to the president who will then negotiate in secret and return to congress insisting on an up-and-down vote. This is an Imperial president we are going to give this authority too.
High Crimes and Misdemeanors
The U.S. Constitution provides impeachment as the method for removing the president, vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office. The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives and follows these steps: 1.The House Judiciary Committee holds hearings and, if necessary, prepares articles of impeachment. These are the charges against the official. 2.If a majority of the committee votes to approve the articles, the whole House debates and votes on them. 3.If a majority of the House votes to impeach the official on any article, then the official must then stand trial in the Senate. 4.For the official to be removed from office, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict the official. Upon conviction, the official is automatically removed from office and, if the Senate so decides, may be forbidden from holding governmental office again.
The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials. But criminal courts may try and punish officials if they have committed crimes.
The Constitution sets specific grounds for impeachment. They are “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.” To be impeached and removed from office, the House and Senate must find that the official committed one of these acts.
The Quran is the holy book of Islam, which is often touted as a peaceful religion. However, many radicals have proven that its teachings can lead to more terror and violence than peace.
Here is a list of reasons why the Quran stands in direct opposition to the U.S. Constitution and why the two cannot co-exist on equal terms:
We recently updated our list of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, waste to total 1,063 documented examples of his lawlessness. On Monday, The Sons of Liberty Radio show host Bradlee Dean cited some of this behavior.
“I know a lot of people that would say, ‘let the Lord deal with them,'” Dean said. “He is, and He would deal with them a lot quicker if the Church would act out what He commanded them to do.”
“Why do we need to wait for Judgment Day when they pass their natural life?” Dean queried. “Why don’t we bring forth judgment today or tomorrow? That’s up to us America.”
Dean then recounted number 18 in a list of 1,063 documented accounts of Barack Obama’s lies and lawlessness.
Unbeknownst to many Americans, the House and Senate are on the verge of handing President Barack Obama the power to unilaterally negotiate the terms for the TransPacific Partnership, a trade agreement involving 12 nations, including the United States.
Even worse, the ruling would make it so that Congress cannot amend or even vet the agreement. All Congress would be able to do is either blindly approve it or kill it.
This greatly concerns the Gun Owners of America, a gun rights organization that boasts over 300,000 members.
In a post published on its website, the group warned that Obama could use this power to impose anti-Second Amendment measures like gun or ammunition import bans. Even scarier is that Obama could try tucking such measures deep inside the final agreement, where they might be overlooked.
The U.S. government is on the verge of passing a surveillance bill that some are calling the Patriot Act 2.0. The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, aka CISA, will double down on all the bulk data the government has already been collecting on you. Plus now it’ll allow businesses to share your personal info with the government and with each other – if they deem what you’re doing a threat. But we all know that’s open to interpretation.
