Far Left Professors Push Dems to Pack Courts With Judicial Activists

pic_giant_040815_SM_Justice-System-DT-2

The claim that judicial activism is necessary to rescue us from bondage to the past– from having the writers of the Constitution “rule us from the grave”– defies both logic and history. There is no contest between the living and the dead. The contest is between those living individuals who wish to see control of change in judicial hands and those who wish to see it in other hands. – Dr. Thomas Sowell

FoxNews.com reports that

Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh entrenched a 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, leading law professors are urging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation’s federal courts and pack them with liberals. 

Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called “1.20.21 Project,” which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter “Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse” of the federal judiciary.

That rhetoric reflects the professors’ apparent surprise after Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, which they had hoped would allow the party to continue appointing liberal judges and justices. In 2016, when Hillary Clinton was leading in all major polls in her bid for the presidency, Tushnet definitively declared in a blog post that conservatives were the “losers in the culture wars.”

He wrote that liberal judges who “no longer have to be worried about reversal by the Supreme Court” could be useful in marginalizing those Republican “losers,” whom he compared to the defeated Japanese in World War II or the Confederacy in the Civil War.

The heated language also highlights what liberals have characterized as the unfair treatment of President Obama’s failed nominee to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland. In 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, refused to hold a hearing or vote on Garland, saying a lame-duck president shouldn’t be able to appoint a justice in an election year. Garland didn’t have enough support in the GOP-held Senate to win confirmation.

At Kavanaugh’s ceremonial swearing-in ceremony earlier this month, President Trump led a standing ovation for McConnell, whom he called a “great” leader who has done an “incredible job for the American people.” Under McConnell and Trump, Republicans have now confirmed 26 federal appellate judges and two Supreme Court justices. (Kavanaugh’s rise to the Supreme Court creates a new vacancy on the influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where he had served for 12 years.)

That fast pace of conservative judicial appointments has upended and frustrated some of the assumptions of liberal law professors like Tushnet, who wrote just two years ago: “Right now more than half of the judges sitting on the courts of appeals were appointed by Democratic presidents, and – though I wasn’t able to locate up-to-date numbers – the same appears to be true of the district courts.”

Liberal academics have long floated the possibility of flooding the bench with Democrats, although the 1.20.21 Project is their most organized effort to date. For example, another far-left law professor, Indiana University’s Ian Samuel, wrote on Twitter as soon as then-Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement in June that Democrats should “[p]ack the courts” as urgently as they should “abolish ICE.”

Still, this latest effort also underscored the intensely left-leaning politics of most of the nation’s academia. During Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, thousands of progressive law professors signed a letter saying Kavanaugh’s temperament during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings in September was disqualifying. Kavanaugh forcefully denied the uncorroborated attempted rape and other sexual misconduct accusations against him.

And Tribe, who has accused President Trump of “orchestrating a massive cover-up” that is “worse” than anything done by former President Richard Nixon, is himself no stranger to partisan politics. In 2015, a piece in The New Yorker by law professor Tim Wu asked, “Did Laurence Tribe Sell Out?” The article noted that “it would … be foolish to ignore the inherent tension in searching for truth while also working for paying clients,” as Tribe does.

For the last several decades, and especially during the Obama Administration, the Liberals of the Democratic Party have relied upon Judicial Activism to overturn the will of the American People and to “get their way” on matters of political and societal importance.

Sometimes they win and sometimes they lose.

A big win for the Democrats was the Supreme court ruling allowing gays to get married.

It was taken to the courts by the Democrats after American Citizens voted not to allow gay marriage in their states. Liberal Judicial Activist Judges, some gay themselves, began striking down the referendums passed in individual states, finally leading to a ruling by the United States Supreme Court.

During the Trump Administration, Judicial Activists have attempted to thwart some of the actions taken of behalf of the American People by our President, such as their attempts to stop the Travel Ban, designed to keep those who would seek to do Americans harm out of our Sovereign Nation.

According to Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, in the following Federalist Paper, Americans have nothing to fear from the Judiciary when they act alone. It’s when they act in concert with others, such as Liberal Politicians in Congress, that Americans need to be afraid.

From The Federalist #78

Whoever attentively considers the different departments of power must perceive, that, in a government in which they are separated from each other, the judiciary, from the nature of its functions, will always be the least dangerous to the political rights of the Constitution; because it will be least in a capacity to annoy or injure them. The Executive not only dispenses the honors, but holds the sword of the community. The legislature not only commands the purse, but prescribes the rules by which the duties and rights of every citizen are to be regulated. The judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or of the wealth of the society; and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgments.

As the 2018 Midterm Elections draw near, we, as Americans, must remember that the Majority Party in both houses of Congress and the President are the ones who will shape our Judicial System for decades to come.

That is why we must get out and vote.

If we do not, and allow the Far Left Democratic Party to take back control of Capitol Hill, our Judiciary will change from one who interprets and enforces the Constitution to one who rewrites and ignores it.

This must not be allowed to happen.

We must, once again, envelop our nation in a “Sea of Red”, like we did on November 8, 2016.

Our future as a Constitutional Republic depends on it.

Obama – “None of This is Normal, What We’re Seeing. This Is Radical.”

insanity-600-li

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” – Joe Biden describing Barack Hussein Obama, February 8, 2007

FoxNews.com reports that

Former President Barack Obama on Thursday night said “the threat to our democracy does not just come from one person in the White House” as he stumped for local Democrats at an Ohio rally.

The 44th president, addressing a crowd at a gymnasium, said that in the existing political climate, the “stakes are higher,” and he stressed that “the consequences of any of us sitting on the sidelines are far more dangerous.”

Campaigning for gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray, Obama called the candidate a “friend” and “one of the first people ever to endorse my candidacy for president.”

Obama didn’t shy away from political current events. He said Democratic voters “marched” and “mobilized” and “voted to make history,” but that even when the party won seats, “there’s been a step back” — which he said the U.S. is enduring at this moment.

Obama, a onetime senator from Illinois, then talked about the Republican Party, saying that even those who won “don’t seem happy.”

“You’d think the Republicans — they won the presidency, they won the House, they won the Senate — they’re still mad, which is interesting,” he said.

Obama said that what the country is seeing isn’t “conservative,” telling the cheering crowd: “None of this is normal, what we’re seeing. This is radical.”

His appearance on Thursday is one of several he’s making across the country, looking to bolster Democrats’ efforts to win seats in state elections and the House of Representatives.

On Saturday, Obama said in Southern California that the midterm elections give Americans “a chance to restore some sanity in our politics,” and told the crowd, “If we don’t step up, things can get worse.”

Republican Gov. John Kasich, elected in 2014, is term-limited and Democrats hope to recapture control of the office. The Dems are out of power at every level of Ohio government.

Cordray — he was appointed by Obama to serve as the first-ever director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and held that post from 2012 until 2017 — faces Republican state Attorney General Mike DeWine in one of the season’s most closely watched gubernatorial contests.

Irony is embarrassed.

For this statement to come out of the mouth of a Far Left Ideologue, whose political career was launched in the home of a member of the notorious Radical Cop Killers known as “The Weather Underground” not only strains credulity, it stretches it until it snaps.

And, Former President Obama, we are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, not a “Democracy”…and that really sticks in your craw, doesn’t it?

You want to claim that what is happening under the leadership of Donald J. Trump is “radical”?

Let’s take a little trip down memory lane, shall we?

Before you left office (by the Grace of God) I wrote the following homage to the late Paul Harvey, titled

If I were a Socialist United States President…

I would begin to plant seeds during my Inaugural Address, concerning the disparity between the Haves and the Have-nots. In other words, I would intentionally begin to divide the nation through the use of Racial Animus and Class Warfare.

Also, during that address I would push for a National Healthcare System, regardless of the fact that such a monstrous entity has never worked, anywhere it has been tried.

I would preach about hope and change, but like all Marxists, I would be hoping to bring subjugation and looking to “radically change” a nation, all in the name of “Fairness and Equality”.

The first thing I would do, when I took office, would be to send money around the world, to finance abortions. In this way, I would show the world that there is a new boss in the United States, who wants to radically change the Shining City on a Hill into just another country.

Next, I would push for the passage of an outrageous spending bill that would actually be a cover for paying back political favors.

I would invite the already-sycophantic Main Stream Media to come to the White House for closed-door meetings, where I would tell them to “get with the program”, if they wanted to receive any news stories from this White House at all.

I would make speeches about how marvelous a Government-run National Healthcare System would be, making hollow promises like,

If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

…all the while knowing that I was lying my hindquarters off.

Once I got my slaves in the Congress to pass this nation-changing National Healthcare Law, I would put the pedal to the metal and continuously push for other outrageous and expensive programs designed to grow the central government.

I would convince Americans that growing the central government is the only solution to a rapidly failing economy and that being unemployed and unable to provide for your family is actually a “fun-cation”.

And, while Americans were suffering through this Economic Depression, I would rant and rave about “Income Inequality”, while my family and I would take frequent vacations, costing the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, and throw lavish private parties at the White House, in a manner reminiscent of the old Soviet Union’s Politburo.

Realizing that the Heartland of America was still Conservative in nature, I would reach out to those Americans who believe themselves to be a mistreated minority. I would reach out to those on the fringes of society. Those Americans, who because of poor upbringing, poor education, or simply making bad decisions concerning their lives, now consider themselves deprived of the American Dream.

These people would compose about 47 percent of the population. They would be my core supporters, much like Nikolai Lenin and the Bolsheviks.

Having done a miserable job in my First Term as President, I would promise these Bolsheviks that if reelected, I would be their Santa Claus.

And, I would continue to blame my predecessor for the wretched state of the economy, even though, by now, it would be my responsibility.

Once I was reelected, there would be no stopping me. It would not matter to me what the popularity polls said, I would continue to claim that those who provide Americans with jobs were “the evil 1%” and identify their success in creating the Greatest Economic System in the World, as the “real reason” for the Economic Depression that America was in.

I would change the Moderate political stances which I “supposedly” held during the campaign for my first election as President, and show my true colors, following a political path pursuant to my true Far Left Radical Political Ideology.

Reverting back to the one job in my life that I was good at, that of being a “Community Organizer”, I would encourage an “Us Vs. Them” Racial Division in America, supporting out-of-control rioters over those who protect the Citizens of the United States, the Thin Blue Line, America’s Police Departments, because then, I could use the situation to create my own National Police Force.

I would alienate Conservative Christians living in America’s Heartland by vilifying them as “Bitter Clingers”, marginalizing them throughout my presidency, even to the point of lecturing them in my Easter Address, telling them to get off their “high horse”, basically saying that the followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, are no better than the murderous followers of Mohammed, whose Ideological Brethren continue to murder Christians in the Middle East.

I would push for “gay marriage”, demonizing Bible-believing Christians, who might oppose it as “bigots” and “haters” and I would voice my support for the legalization of marijuana.

Through redefining the definition of the family unit, and eliminating Christianity from everyday American Life, I will eliminate the “backbone” of the nation…the two main barriers that will keep me from radically changing America into a socialist nation.

Through pushing for the legalization of marijuana, I would succeed in dumbing down the population and eliminating their desire to succeed as individuals, making them even more subservient and reliant on the Almighty State for their very existence, thus creating a new “Proletariat”.

Regarding Foreign Policy, I would bow in deference to other world leaders, demonstrating to them and the rest of the world, that I do not believe that the United States of America, whom I am supposed to be the Biggest Advocate for, is exceptional in any way.

I would not negotiate with America’s Enemies from a position of strength. Instead, I would blindly trust those who have sworn to kill us, even if they are on the threshold of building a nuclear bomb, simply because I identify with their Political Ideology, which masquerades as a religion.

I would pull out of still turbulent areas in the Middle East, encouraging the Barbaric Forces of Radical Islam to move in and conquer the very cities where our Brightest and Best sacrificed their lives in service to America.

On the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, I would sit at a solemn International Memorial Service, smacking my gum like a cow chews his cud, as if I was behind the bench at a Chicago Bulls Basketball Game, dishonoring our fallen and enraging our allies.

In other words, I would embrace America’s Enemies, and alienate America’s Friends.

I would use the finest military in the world as a subject for Social Engineering Experiments, ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and moving women into combat positions, even though their lack of physical strength would endanger the American Soldiers they are fighting beside.

Following this, I would eventually allowing the “Transgendered” to serve in our Armed Forces.

I would remove God from the Armed Forces and forbid soldiers from speaking about Christ to others. I would also begin Military Training which would identify Evangelicals as “Terrorists”.

While I am at it, I would push for my wife to be able to place the military on a diet plan that is similar to the one which would already be failing in America’s Public Schools.

I would trade 5 Murderous Muslim Terrorist Generals, for one useless, traitorous, American Army Deserter, who was discharged in 2006 from the Coast Guard for Psychological Issues, who later converted to the Religious/Political Ideology of his Captors, and whose Father’s Youtube Account praised the same Radical Muslims and their Political Ideology which poses as a religion, just because I wish to make a Political Point about closing the prison in which the enemies of our country were being held.

I would use the Judicial System, The Department of Justice, the NSA, and Internal Revenue Service as my Palace Guard, using Activist judges to overturn the will of the people and harassing political opposition through uncalled-for Tax Audits.

I would use unmanned drones and blimps for unwarranted surveillance on American Citizens.

I would push for Gun Confiscation, calling it “Gun Control”, in the “name of the children”, all the while supporting the murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs, because having a baby is “a punishment”.

Because, after all, as Vladimir Lenin said,

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

I would imperiously announce that if Congress did not pass the laws that I wanted them to pass, I would go around them and rule by Executive Order.

I would open our Southern Borders, bypassing our immigration laws, encouraging millions of illegal aliens to enter our nation, including unaccompanied minors, spurred on by propaganda intentionally leaked to their Latin American Home Nations in support of this Mexican Munchkin Migration.

All the while, pushing Congress for “Immigration Reform”, i.e., “Amnesty”, in order to assure that my Political Party would hold onto their Political Power, in order to finish the intentional “Radical Change” of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

And, if Congress refused to follow my wishes, I would attempt to grant Amnesty through “Executive Order”, bypassing the System of Checks and Balances that America’s Founding Fathers put into place, so long ago, in order to avoid a monarchy, such as they rebelled against.

I would blame others for my incompetency. I would portray myself as a victim of a Capitalist System and a Racist Ideology that was still prevalent in a nation that was too narrow-minded to allow me to lead them to a Socialist Paradise, even though my wife and I were worth millions or dollars, I was the President of the United States of America, and we took numerous vacations and went on “fact-finding missions” at the expense of the American Taxpayers.

Finally, if I were a Socialist U.S. President, I would desperately try to deflect any blame away from my political party and My Former Secretary of State, a lousy candidate, for losing the Presidency to a “rank outsider, an American Businessman and Entrepreneur, a “Citizen Statesman”, if you will.

I would have my intelligence agencies publicize a story that Vladimir Putin, a man who believes me to be nothing but a wuss and to be a poor excuse for a leader of a country, to have used cyber-technology to somehow influence the election. Later, as more information would be revealed, I would be forced to admit that “Russian Interference” actually did not have any influence over the election. Then, I would park American Tanks on the Russian Border, simply to prove what a “tough guy” I was.

…In summation, America has suffered for 8 years under a Former Community Organizer who suffers from a massive ego fueled by a condition which I have dubbed “Educated Beyond His Intelligence Syndrome.” Obama firmly believes that he is the most intelligent person in any room which he enters.

The reality, however, is that Obama was a miserable failure as President.

Joe Biden’s description years ago of Obama as being “clean and articulate” proved to be a poor substitution for having a spine and being a capable leader.

All his reappearance is doing is encouraging Americans to go to the polls during the Midterm Election and vote Republican.

When that happens, then his Comeback Tour on behalf of the Democratic Candidates WILL be a success…for the Republicans…and all of us Deplorable “Radicals”.

Durbin Suggests Stopping SCOTUS Nominee More Important Than Midterm Elections

mtp_full_durbin_180708_1920x1080.nbcnews-ux-1080-600

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1016071245568380934

FoxNews.com reports that

Just one day before President Trump is set to announce his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy in a primetime address from the White House, a top Democratic senator suggested that stopping the nominee is more important than the upcoming midterm elections.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., acknowledged that so-called red-state Democrats may be tempted to vote for Trump’s selection out of political necessity, but urged his colleagues Sunday to consider more than their political careers.

“Beyond the procedure, beyond the gamesmanship, it is a life-and-death important decision to be made by this court on so many issues,” the Senate minority whip said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“The men and women that I work with on the Democratic side really take this seriously,” he added, after host Chuck Todd raised the possibility that Democrats could lose their bid to retake the Senate by opposing the nominee. “They understand it’s an historic decision. It’s about more than the next election. It’s about what future the United States of America is going to chart.”

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham called the situation a veritable “nightmare” for Democrats hanging onto their vulnerable seats in states that largely support Trump.

Those Democrats — including West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, and Indiana’s Joe Donnelly — must choose between alienating their constituents, or trying to halt a conservative nominee who may ultimately prove unstoppable anyway because of the GOP’s slim Senate majority.

Only 50 votes are needed to confirm a justice, because Senate Republicans eliminated the filibuster for Supreme Court justices last year — widely seen as a retaliation for Democrats’ decision to get rid of the filibuster to ensure that President Barack Obama’s nominees were seated on the D.C. Circuit.

Durbin charged that it was “totally inconsistent” for Republicans to press for a vote on Trump’s nominee after stalling the nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016. GOP Senate leaders refused to vote on Garland’s selection, saying it was inappropriate to consider a nomination during a presidential election year — a principle Durbin claimed must logically apply to midterm election cycles as well.

But Judiciary Committee member Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said Sunday he would still be willing to meet with Trump’s nominee, even as he echoed Durbin’s complaints about Garland’s treatment.

I could go into detail, as I have in numerous past posts, about how the Far Left Democratic Party has completely gone off the rails since the election and subsequent Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Of course, the fact that he has achieved great success in fulfilling his Campaign Promises since Inauguration Day has not helped the mental state of Democrats at all.

Hence, Durbin’s wish to commit political hari kari by fighting Trump’s Choice for the vacant Supreme Court Justice position, no matter whom the President nominates tonight.

Through my lifetime, I have watched the Democrats railroad three Republican President’s Nominations: Bork, Ginsburg, and Thomas. Thank God Thomas was able to make it through the Democrats’ Gauntlet, which included false charges of sexual harassment, to become a solid Conservative member of the SCOTUS.

Democrats know that Trump is going to nominate a Conservative for the position tonight.

After the success that Justice Gorsuch has already shown himself to be, why should Trump change his game plan to please the Democrats?

The answer is, of course, he shouldn’t.

So Durbin, Schumer, et al, have a choice: either be public servants and allow President Trump to pick his nominee without too much fuss, or, show your backsides to the voting public and give them another reason to kick your out-of touch egotistical as…errr…selves out of your phony baloney jobs. (I didn’t get a harrumph from that guy! – Mel Brooks, “Blazing Saddles”)

Which personally, gentle readers, will be fine with me.

I’m so tired of all of the negativity about every single thing that the duly elected 45th President of the United States does, that I could throw something at the TV and hit Shep Smith right between the eyes.

Between the Dems and the Never-Trumpers, it is amazing that the President has been so successful.

And, if he nominates the individual whom I think he will tonight, he will expose the hypocrisy of the before-mentioned Nattering Nabobs of Negativity so severely, it will result in months of side-splitting entertainment for those of us who support President Trump to look forward to.

As Garth said to Wayne when they put their street hockey goal back in place after a car came down their street,

“Game on”!

Saving America From Oblivion (A KJ Op Ed)

Obama-Shrinks-2Conservatives continued to outnumber moderates and liberals in the U.S. population in 2014, as they have since 2009. However, their 14-percentage-point edge over liberals last year, 38% vs. 24%, is the smallest in Gallup’s trends since 1992. The percentage of U.S. adults identifying themselves as politically conservative in 2014 was unchanged from 2013, as was the percentage of moderates, at 34%, while the percentage considering themselves liberal rose a percentage point for the third straight year. – Gallup.com

As I am wont to do, from time to time, this Saturday morning’s post is going to be an Opinion editorial, or an Op Ed.

When did America stop being the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave…and start being the Land of the Restricted and the Home of the Apologetic?

Regardless of what your first thought probably is, this phenomenon did not originate with Barack Hussein Obama, it just intensified with him.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands, for to this day.

From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.

Hypocritical, No?

Back in simpler times, a lot of Americans had a bumper sticker that read

America… Love it or Leave it.

I’d love to have a bumper sticker that said,

America… Stand for her or shut up.

I guess that the reason that I’m speaking of this on this crisp March morning before Palm Sunday, is that I am fed up with our first anti-American President and all his sycophantic, unwitting minions, who cannot understand the peril that we are facing. It’s one thing to go around like an ostrich with your head in the sand, but it sure does limit your view of what is happening around you, while showing off your hindquarters to the rest of the world.

Unfortunately, that is exactly what is happening to our nation today.

The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so. – Ronald Reagan

Modern American Liberals, from President Barack Hussein Obama on down the line,  believe intrinsically that they are the smartest people in any room that they walk into, an arrogance which blinds them to reality 99.9% of the time.

…foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Sen. Clinton or Sen. McCain.”- Barack Hussein Obama, April 2008

Uh huh.

Lost in the fog of his own hubris, Obama, in his zeal to form what he believes to be a lasting agreement with the Rogue Barbaric Islamic State of Iran, which includes trusting them implicitly not to use the nuclear bomb, to blow us off the face of the earth, which he is going to allow them to have,  seriously believes that the Iranians will be faithful to this farce of an agreement. His own mistaken faith in his own “superior intellect” will not allow him to believe otherwise. In his quest to leave a legacy, other than the destruction of our country, as we know it,

President Obama’s foreign policy is one of saying, first of all, America’s just another nation with a flag. – Mitt Romney, 11/22/2011

Unfortunately, his domestic policy is no better than his foreign policy, which leaves the overwhelming majority of Americans with no sense of security in Obama’s ability to lead, whatsoever.

78% of Americans are worried about the direction of the nation’s economy in the next year – Fox News 2014 Midterm Elections Exit Poll

That is, those of us who do not have our heads placed firmly in the sand and our hindquarters sticking defiantly up in the air.

Fortunately, the number of Americans we’re walking around without blinders on, with a panoramic world view, and with their hindquarters exactly where they are supposed to be, is growing in number, as proven by the midterm elections of 2014.

Do not allow the members of a minority political ideology, which only comprises 24% of America’s population, convince you that everyone feels about America the way they do.

Liberals truly believe and shriek at the top of their lungs that calling out Obama on his ineptness and incompetency means that you are “against America”.

That is not the case.

Ask “Bubba”:

Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”- “The Amateur”, Edward Klein, May, 2012

As certain as I am about the love of my 7-year old grandson, I possess that same certainty that the overwhelming majority of Americans are becoming very aware of the perilous situation, which this administration has placed us in.

This awareness will manifest itself in the upcoming months as we near the 2016 presidential election.

Whoever winds up as the Republican Presidential Candidate, must not only also possess that awareness, but must possess the oral skills to communicate that awareness and also, a passion to protect and serve the United States of America, a nation which he must love with all his heart.

That is what it will take to stop this “Shining City Upon a Hill”, from becoming a third-world barrio…and to continue our existence as a nation.

Why Should Illegals Get Free Healthcare For Breaking Into Our Country? (A KJ Op Ed)

AFBrancoVoting Results111514We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.

But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people. – President Teddy Roosevelt

I remember it as if it was yesterday. It was a Sunday morning, around this time of year. I was 11 years old and I was sick as a dog from bronchitis.

My devoted Daddy was driving me to the doctor’s office. One of the three doctors, who literally raised me  as an asthmatic child, would open up the office for a couple of hours on Sunday morning, for folks who were seriously ill.

Since all three of them felt like they were my surrogate fathers, when we got to the office, the doctor immediately set me down and started to care for me.

Both my mother and father worked for Sears for 20 years. This being the 1960’s, there were no hoops to jump through, just insurance to be filed later by the doctor’s office.

Now, all these years later, I am still asthmatic, however, my condition is controlled by medication prescribed to me by physicians who worked in the finest healthcare system in the world.

As an adult, in the past, even during periods of unemployment, I was always able to receive treatment, from doctors who would work with me.

Having recently gone through a period of unemployment, I found, with the advent of Obamacare, that if you did not have insurance, doctors were more reluctant to work with you in regards to payment of their services. In fact, my physician requested payment of $250 on the spot for treating me for another case of bronchitis. Luckily, I had it, or else I would have been out of luck.

Now, it’s not like I did not try to get Obamacare while I was out of work. However, my wife has insurance through her job, and, according to the Obamacare website, I was not eligible, even though the cost of adding me to my wife’s insurance was beyond our means to pay.

Through the providence of Gods, now I have a great job, and will be eligible in January for my company’s insurance plan.

All that being said, were you aware that the secretary of Human Services has suggested giving all of these five million illegal aliens whom Obama is fixing to grant amnesty to, FREE OBAMACARE?

I’m not kidding.

That’s correct. The Prevaricator-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, wants to give away free healthcare to people who have never sworn allegiance to our country.

Let that soak in for a moment, boys and girls.

These criminals, who have broken into our country, violated our laws, and already are on EBT cards and are receiving driver’s licenses, will now receive their healthcare absolutely free.

Do you think that if we broke in to Mexico that we would get all this stuff for free?

There’s less chance of that happening, than Davy Crockett and those boys had in surviving the Alamo.

However, you have to admit, that it is a heck of a way to both create and buy off new voters.

And, that is what this is all about. Barack Hussein Obama is not being benevolent. He is as self-centered and Machiavellian as they come.

The fact is, the Democratic Party cannot stand on their own ideals. They just got their hindquarters handed to them in the midterm elections.

Anybody with any common sense whatsoever, knows that socialism has failed everywhere it has been tried. These self-proclaimed geniuses are no smarter than any other want-to-be socialists, who have tried to implement “sharing the wealth” in the past. They just have a more effective propaganda machine.

What we saw on Tuesday the 4th, was what happens when the promise of a Marxist ideology, turns out to be the reality of a failed presidency.

And, just like Lenin used the Bolsheviks to overthrow the Czar in the Russian Revolution, so are Obama and the Democrats using the illegal aliens to ensure that they will be elected to office for decades to come.

This next week will show us exactly what we bought with our votes on November the 4th.

It is up to Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and the rest of the Republicans in Congress, to stand tough against this usurpation of the Constitution.

Contrary to what the mainstream media and the rest of the Democrats have been saying since the election, Americans did not collect all these Republicans to work with the Democrats, we elected them to stop them.

This week is their chance to prove that we made the right decision.

Their bosses, We the People, are watching.

Election Day 2014: Preserving Our Children’s Future

voteYou and I have a rendezvous with destiny. 

We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness. – “Ronald Reagan, “A Time For Choosing”, October 27, 1964

Once again, today is “A Time For Choosing”.

Today, Americans all over our great land will exercise their Right to Vote.

This is a right that our fellow countrymen have fought and died for. A Constitutional Right which allows us, as American citizens, to take part in moulding the future of our country.

This Constitutional Right was designed to be an exercise in deliberation and judgment. It is not a right to be taken lightly, as so many Americans seem to do nowadays.

In fact, if you were able take a survey of people around the world, you would find that a great many of them would sacrifice whatever they could, including their lives, in order to be able to cast a vote in a country which was free , and where the right to do so, and to do so anonymously, was protected by law.

There have been a lot of countries and there continues to be a lot of countries, which go through the motions of having a free election. However, in reality, their elections are nothing but a dog and pony show, designed to reinforce a totalitarian regime.

Usually, these regimes are supported by the country’s media, whose job, as the old song goes, is to ” accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative.”

Sound familiar?

During the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, the media has acted in such a fashion in this country. They viewed their job, not as objective reporters of the news of the day, but as protectors and defenders of the first black President of the United States, especially since he was of their own political ideology, a Liberal Democrat.

During these last almost seven years, American citizens have had a taste of what citizens living under totalitarian regimes must feel like.

At the beginning of the Obama Presidency, he had a Democratically- led Congress to work with, with Nancy Pelosi as the Speaker of the House and Harry Reid leading the Senate.

In the midterm elections of 2010, average Americans, following the lead of the Conservative Tea Party movement, stood up on our hind legs and voted some of the rascals out, giving the leadership of the House of Representatives to the Republican Party.

Today, four years later, we have an opportunity to continue the process of taking our country back from the “Tyranny of the Minority”.

By going to the polls today, voting Republican, and in the process, giving control of both the House and the Senate to the Republicans, Americans can take away the Political Power Base of President Barack Hussein Obama, turning him into a two-year Lame Duck President.

Polls have shown that the majority of Americans are not satisfied with the direction that this nation is heading under his leadership.

Here are a few reasons why the overwhelming majority of Americans feel that way:

  • The “not-a-war with ISIS” including his unabashed comment that, “We are not at war with Islam.”
  • The economy, featuring the indefensible fact that over 92,600,000 Americans have dropped out of our workforce.
  • The out-of-control Department of Education, featuring Common Core, and plans to teach sex education to pre-schoolers.
  • The VA Hospital Scandal, in which our Brightest and Best were given worse treatment than indigent Americans.
  • Obama’s use of the judiciary to overthrow the States’ anti-Gay Marriage votes.
  • His over-the-top reliance on class warfare and race-baiting divisive rhetoric.
  • His support and subsequent camouflage of the Mexican Munchkin Migration.
  • His promise to sign an Executive Order for Amnesty for illegal immigrants living in our Sovereign Nation.
  • His insistence that Ebola will never reach our shores.
  • And, finally, Obamacare.

Make no mistake, today is our opportunity to show exactly how we feel about the failed Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

Today is our chance to send a message.

The message we send must be loud and clear.

That message must reverberate through the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, so that they will know without a shadow of a doubt, that American citizens will not sit idly by and watch this nation, which our Fathers fought and died for, be turned in to something that it was never meant to be.

To quote founding father, Patrick Henry,

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Our brethren are already in the fields. Why stand we here idle? I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Our CHAINS today are the fetters we wear while being taxed by an out-of-control federal government.

The which we are suffering through today, comes as a result of the overbearing burden of taxes and regulations by that selfsame government, which was created by our Founding Fathers to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people”, has instead become “of the special interest groups, by the special interest groups, and for the special interest groups”.

As our Founding Fathers and every generation of Patriots after them has demonstrated, LIBERTY is freedom with responsibility.

Our responsibility on this election day as American Citizens is to continue the process of taking back our country, for the sake of those who will come after us.

Those who have sacrificed their lives for our FREEDOM deserve no less.

The 2014 Midterms: Is There a Political Tsunami Approaching?

AFBrancoWreckingBall1132014Tomorrow is the most important Midterm Election in our lifetimes.

I’m are not being hyperbolic. I am simply stating a fact.

The New York Times reports that

Republicans entered the final weekend before the midterm elections clearly holding the better hand to control the Senate and poised to add to their House majority. But a decidedly sour electorate and a sizable number of undecided voters added a measure of suspense.

The final drama surrounded the Senate, which has been a Democratic bulwark for President Obama since his party lost its House majority in 2010. Republicans need to gain six seats to seize the Senate, and officials in both parties believe there is a path for them to win at least that many.

Yet the races for a number of seats that will decide the majority remained close, polls showed, prompting Republicans to pour additional money into get-out-the-vote efforts in Alaska, Georgia and Iowa. Democrats were doing the same in Colorado, where they were concerned because groups that tend to favor Republicans voted early in large numbers, and in Iowa.

While an air of mystery hung over no fewer than nine Senate races, the only question surrounding the House was how many seats Republicans would add. If they gain a dozen seats, it will give them an advantage not seen since 1948 and potentially consign the Democrats to minority status until congressional redistricting in the 2020s.

In a sign of a worsening climate, Democratic officials shifted money to incumbents in once-safe districts around Las Vegas and Santa Barbara, Calif. And over the weekend, they put more money toward television ads in districts held by Democrats in Iowa and Minnesota, including that of longtime Representative Collin C. Peterson of Minnesota. Though there are fewer competitive House seats than in past elections because of gerrymandering, party strategists were still airing ads in 40 districts.

“It’s a grim environment,” said Representative Steve Israel of New York, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Mr. Israel was spending the weekend pleading with his caucus to contribute to imperiled colleagues to minimize losses. Trying to soften the blow, he noted that losses were expected: The party in control of the White House has lost an average of 29 seats in midterm elections in the last century.

Just two years after he won a second term by a commanding margin, Mr. Obama haskept his distance from the most pivotal congressional races. On Saturday, he was to address a heavily African-American crowd in Detroit to bolster Michigan’s Democratic nominee for governor.

Senate Republicans are confident. A senior party official called Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the minority leader, on Saturday at his Louisville home and, after running through voting projections, told Mr. McConnell that he would be the next majority leader. Mr. McConnell’s initial reaction was only a long pause.

According to Nate Silver’s blog, fivethirtyeight.com,

The GOP’s chances of winning the Senate are 68.5 percent, according to the FiveThirtyEight forecast, its highest figure of the year.

Among the 20 new polls released Thursday — it looks like there will be no Great Poll Shortage after all — two were principally responsible for Republican gains. The first was in Kentucky, where a SurveyUSA poll for the Louisville Courier-Journal had Republican incumbent Mitch McConnell ahead 48-43 over Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. The poll represented a shift from SurveyUSA’s previous two polls, which had a 1 percentage-point lead for McConnell and a 2-point lead for Grimes. With SurveyUSA (a highly rated pollster) now more in line with other polls of the state, we have a clearer story in Kentucky. It’s one that probably ends in a victory for McConnell, whose chances of winning are up to 87 percent.

The other poll was in Arkansas, which hasn’t been surveyed as often as other key Senate races. That poll, from the University of Arkansas, found Republican Tom Cotton up by 13 percentage points over Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor. No other poll of the state has shown Cotton with a double-digit lead, but he hasn’t trailed in a nonpartisan poll since Sept. 22. When the choice is between polls that show a candidate with a small lead and polls that show him with a large lead, he’s usually in good shape just a few days before Election Day.

Speaking of which, it’s not too early to look ahead to election night (along with our partners at ABC News, we’ll be covering everything; we hope you’ll join us). The number you’ll be hearing about all night is six — as in, Republicans need to net six seats from Democrats to win control of the Senate.

As we’ve pointed out before, the “net” part of that phrase is key. Republicans will have to win more than six Democratic-held seats if they lose a couple of their own. Their incumbent in Kansas, Sen. Pat Roberts, is only even-money to win re-election (although there’s a chance independent Greg Orman, even if he wins, could caucus with Republicans). The GOP candidate in Georgia, David Perdue, is ahead by only about 1 percentage point against Democrat Michelle Nunn, and that race could go to a runoff. McConnell is likely, but not certain, to survive.

Can the Republicans win control of the Senate and pick up more seats in the House of Representatives tomorrow?

It all depends on the following factors:

1. How mad are American Voters at President Barack Hussein Obama and his Congressional Enablers in the Democrat Party?

Since Obama assumed the presidency for the second time, he has doubled-down on his mission to “radically change” America into something that it was never meant to be. We all hear our fellow Americans venting their anger to us about the purposeful ineptness of President Pantywaist. But, will this motivate the average American to go to the polls tomorrow and vent their frustration?

2. How big will tomorrow’s turnout be?

Will American Conservatives stay home, as they did when the Republicans ran the severely Moderate Mitt Romney as their Presidential Nominee, or are they sufficiently motivated by Obama’s actions to vote straight Republican…even for snakes like Mississippi’s Thad Cochran, who won his State Party’s Nomination as Senatorial Candidate by enlisting Black Democrats to vote for him in the state’s Republican Primary?

3. Will Voter Fraud be better controlled than it was in the 2012 President Election?

Will Democrats vote early, vote often, and “vote post-mortem”?

If all the stars align and Americans exercise some common sense, tomorrow’s Midterm Elections could turn out to be a Political Tsunami of epic proportions

As you contemplate casting your vote tomorrow, think about this:

Our Founding Fathers designed our government for a very specific purpose: to give Americans a voice in the direction in which direction their country should go.

Tomorrow’s election will be a referendum on the epic failure that is the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

The greatest United States President in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, said,

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

In order to preserve our nation for future generations, it is time to restore the System of Checks and Balances which our Founders, through deliberation and with foresight, so ingeniously put in place over 200 years ago.

Our freedom requires it.

Intolerant Liberals, “Squishy Conservatives”, a Divided Nation

ObamaPutin7242014As I write this, the world is exploding around us…literally. Russia, under the leadership of Former KGB Agent, Vladimir Putin, is as aggressive as they have ever been, presently on a campaign to regain all of those Eastern European Countries which they lost during the demise of the old Soviet Union.

At the same time, the land bequeathed to Abram by God (Genesis 12: 1-3), is the scene of violence, as Muslim Barbarians, who have never had a country of their own, seek to take over Israel and kill God’s Chosen People.

How is this happening?

The answer is to a cheering throng of Europeans, infiltrated by adherents to the “Religion of Peace”. You know, the religion that turns their wives and daughters into slaves to be beaten and murdered for “honor’s sake”, and, whose “Freedom Fighters”, in the midst of a “Holy Jihad” against “the infidels”, use their own children as human shields and ‘wage war” from inside the corridors of hospitals.

However, it is not just the Europeans who are cheering these cowardly barbarians on. It is American Liberals, as well.

While not every American Liberal supports the barbarism of Hamas, there are more than you think, including, unbelievably, some American Jews.

These “tolerant” Liberals are following the lead of their President and his Administration.

The Washington Post has the latest details…

The United States on Wednesday put the most direct pressure yet on its ally Israel to cut short its military campaign against Hamas in Gaza, but Secretary of State John F. Kerry did not get a deal from Israel or the Palestinians to stop the bloodshed.

Despite a swirl of shuttle diplomacy, the war looked far from over Wednesday. Israeli leaders told their soldiers to prepare for an escalation inside the Gaza Strip, while the leader of Hamas vowed that his Islamist militant movement would not sign a permanent cease-fire until Israel ends its blockade of the coastal enclave.

Ordinary Israelis were upset with the United States and accused the Americans of cowardice after the Federal Aviation Administration, nervous that Hamas rockets have landed near Israel’s main airport, extended a ban on U.S. commercial flights to Tel Aviv. The decision was bad news for a small, image-conscious country such as Israel whose economy relies on international trade and tourism.

The FAA lifted the ban at 11:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.

Kerry met in Israel with on Wednesday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was angry about the FAA action and suspicious that it was an attempt by the Obama administration to squeeze Israel to end its Gaza campaign.

This division over the right of Israel to defend herself against Islamic Terrorists, extends to the overall feeling of Americans concerning the current state of our nation.

According to Rasmussen Reports,

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove (see trends).

The latest figures include 24% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17.

Results are updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).

How are voters reacting to the new burst of fighting between Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza? Find out at 10:30 a.m. Eastern today.

Voters strongly believe the United States is a more divided nation these days, but Republicans are the most eager to do something about it at the ballot box in November.

The Republican Party has been practicing “Squishy” Conservatism, since the history-making Midterm Elections of 2010. We are currently living with the consequences of that. Practicing this political philosophy of relative ethics and relative morality is akin to building a house on shifting sand.

Americans do not tolerate vacillating leaders for very long. Look at the problems besetting The “Fundraiser-in-Chief”, Barack “Scooter” Obama. Few Americans, except for his Far Left sycophantic base, are buying the now-stale  “Hope and Change” he is still feebly selling.

More Liberals are becoming jaded and disappointed with Obama, because all of his “hope and change”, has affected the pocketbooks of the entire nation, not just those of the “evil 1%”.

This Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” and his own petulant, belligerent personality of a 12 year old, has lead to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

Conservatives have a great opportunity ahead of us this November. But we will blow it if we do not present a united front. Our country is under siege from enemies, internal and external, that want to turn the “Shining City on a Hill” into a Third-World Barrio. We do not have the luxury of wasting time ridiculing another Conservative for being old-fashioned or Christian. It’s time to man up. The barbarians have knocked down the gate and they are ransacking our homes. They have burdened future generations with a tax burden that may be insurmountable. For our children’s children’s sake, we must politically repel these invaders who wish to make us subservient to their failed ideology. 

So before I wrap my daily rant up, I wish to leave you with the words of the greatest American President in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan.  Here is a excerpt from a now-famous “Stump Speech” he gave, during the Barry Goldwater Presidential Campaign in 1964.

Now, 50 years later, it is once again, “A Time For Choosing”.

You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for,when did this begin — just in the face of this enemy?

Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the
shot heard ’round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of theNazis didn’t die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all.

You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.” And this — this is the meaning in the phrase of Barry Goldwater’s “peace through strength.” Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations . When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits — not animals.” And he said, “The re’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.”

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.

Until He Comes,
