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.

UPDATE: The implementation of Barack Obama’s takeover of the Internet is less than 45 days away. And as Marsha Blackburn says, if Congress does not take action to stop Barack Obama, the government will “control the Internet” in a little over the month.
Make no mistake, the Internet as you know it will never be the same if we let Barack Obama implement this takeover. You’ll pay more for less service and the government will use this draconian ruling as a club to bludgeon Internet freedom, including ultimately your free speech.
And if you think we exaggerate, consider what Rep. Marsha Blackburn says on the matter: “Once the federal government establishes a foothold into managing how Internet service providers run their networks they will essentially be deciding which content goes first, second, third, OR NOT AT ALL.”

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 movement that opposed Lynch that, despite the fact that conservative voters handed back the Senate majority to the Republican Party in 2014 to make him Senate Majority Leader, he not only doesn’t care what they think, he will go out of his way to disrespect them and confound their policy goals.
Lynch, who testified under oath that she would readily carry out policies contrary to the Constitution could have – indeed should have – been stopped by Republicans in the Senate, but she wasn’t.

The Constitution Is So Over And I Can Prove It
There are many reasons for saying there is no Constitution. We won’t bore you with all of them, just the most glaring ones. It is possible and even probable that we will never get the rule of law back.
We not only don’t have rule by law, we don’t have borders. They’ve been effectively erased. The fact that we like many of the people coming into the country has made us a land that rules by emotion instead of by law.
We don’t have a broken law, that’s deceit pedaled by politicians, the problem is that we don’t follow the law.
Anyone can come in and almost no one is being deported. Even felons get to stay. Traitorous congressmen run around the country telling illegals how to manipulate and evade the law.
Once illegals make it into the country, the government has their backs. The government gives them unlimited freebies and makes them part of a poor third world subculture right here in the United States. When they can, they give them jobs that citizens should have.

The Supreme Court will decide Friday whether to grant review on a case relating to the infamous Wisconsin “John Doe” investigation of conservative groups that supported Governor Scott Walker and his reform of public sector union collective bargaining.
The case, O’Keefe v. Chisholm, was filed by Eric O’Keefe and the Wisconsin Club for Growth after they each received John Doe subpoenas in October 2013, demanding that they turn over all Club records and communications–including all emails, financial materials and donor lists–to prosecutors. Consistent with Wisconsin’s John Doe law, the subpoenas gagged O’Keefe and the Club, prohibiting them from speaking to anyone (including lawyers or the press) about the existence or nature of the subpoenas, under pain of contempt. Numerous other conservative activists’ homes were searched in middle-of-the-night SWAT raids, their computers, phones and other papers seized, and their victims also gagged. Documents divulged in the litigation revealed that the prosecutors hoped to expand the John Doe investigation by issuing subpoenas to high profile conservatives such as radio show host Sean Hannity.
O’Keefe’s lawsuit centers primarily around a claim that the John Doe investigation was being conducted in bad faith, in an attempt to silence the First Amendment speech and association rights of O’Keefe and the Club. In May 2014, a federal trial judge, Rudolph Randa, granted O’Keefe and the Club a preliminary injunction, halting the investigation and finding that their First Amendment claims were likely to succeed on the merits.
I wrote some time ago on how John Kerry went to Latin America and declared the Monroe Doctrine dead. Obama just finalized it in Cuba. The Monroe Doctrine has been in place since 1823 and has long warned America’s enemies to not even THINK about using South America as a back door to bring Communism and aggression to our doorstep. Well, Obama has thrown that proverbial door wide open to South America and has invited in every enemy we have. Hell, he’s thrown our door at the borders open inviting them into the US as well. He wants America at war and brought to her knees and he’s really going for it now.
