Dear Ruler living up to his ‘ruler’ status

Less than one week after Dear Ruler was elected president in 2008, Obama’s senior adviser Valerie Jarrett did an interview on Meet the Press. It was then that she declared that President-elect Obama would be “ready to rule from day one.” Little did we know exactly what she meant by this phrase.

Three years later, we now know what the administration meant by this …

Just consider the latest round of administrative actions that Obama is using to address job creation. He is now on his fifth proposal or executive order; the latest is an attempt to reduce certain shortages of prescription drugs. And I don’t expect that this will be the last. Chief dogwasher Jay Carney says that Obama will continue to act “administratively” without Congressional approval in order to “benefit the American people.”

Obama will act unilaterally to do what he thinks is best for the American people. Unfortunately for Americans, Obama isn’t the only politician interested in doing whatever it takes to act in the interest of the American people, regardless of a little teeny tiny thing called the Constitution.

* Illinois Rep. Phil Hare: “I don’t care about the Constitution!”

* Illinois Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr: Congress is like the Confederate states in rebellion; therefore Obama should declare a national emergency and take “extra-constitutional” action to tackle jobs.

* Illinois Senator Dick Durbin: Republicans are “simply standing back while trying to design the bumper sticker for the 2012 election instead of designing the economy to put Americans back to work.”

What is in the water in Illinois? Seems as though the Constitution is irrelevant for politicians from Illinois, and that includes Barack Obama.

Warning! Progressives’ NPV Plan for White House Control, 2012 & Permanently

While the lamestream media holds public attention on GOP candidate rivalries, a “progressive” strategy is underway to eliminate the role of the states in electing a U.S. President. By transferring electoral votes to a “national popular vote” this “Compact” would usurp the role of the states as safeguarded by our Constitution. In doing so, it could also neutralize Obama’s critics — totally.

This may be the most vital – and time sensitive – expose WAM has ever uncovered and shared! And it’s happening now, under the radar, with the general public in the dark. This “ultimate vote fraud” is intentionally complicated to keep it obscure until it’s too late to stop it.

This complete expose on the “National Popular Vote Compact” won’t be found elsewhere. Because of the complexity and urgency of this issue. read it through completely. See who is behind this scheme and what its intended consequences are.

Then spread the word in your blogs, forums and forward to all your contacts now. There is still time to block the NPVC sufficient states passage – only if we act now!

All of US urgently need to contact our State Assemblymen, State Senators and Governors to vehemently oppose this covert measure! See below the real facts of this manipulation of the Constitution and American electorate. See Your State Status and action needed in last column.

2012 and What Democrats Believe

Democrats believe that you are legally permitted to break into an empty home if you need a place to stay.

Democrats believe that stealing furniture from someone’s home — if it’s in the best interest of your family — is a legally acceptable practice.

Democrats believe that you are within your rights to crash a rich man’s party if you’re hungry, because he’s got plenty of extra food.

Democrats believe that any person, should they require access to clean facilities like showers, toilets, and towels, must be legally permitted to break into a health club.

And because Internet access is a human right, Democrats believe that those without it are legally allowed to break into office buildings to obtain web access.

I know all this to be true.

Because Democrat politicians believe that millions of foreigners have every right to enter our home — our sovereign republic — to use our schools, our health care system, our roads, and our infrastructure. Democrats believe that immigration laws aren’t laws at all; for, in fact, they are suing states for enforcing the very immigration laws that Congress passed!

These temporary politicians — these useless Democrats hacks — no longer represent the people. They represent illegal aliens, who are trespassing in our country; who are entering our land without any background checks or vetting procedures; who are driving up unemployment among citizens; who often come for free health care services or schooling or more nefarious reasons; who do not understand the history or traditions of this country; and whose presence here will ultimately Balkanize this country in ways no one can possibly foresee.

For Democrats, clinging to political power trumps the Constitution; it trumps the laws they have passed; it trumps the concerns of the citizenry; it trumps every moral and ethical tenet of this country. But their appetite for raw power is so insatiable, and it is so naked and malevolent, that they are willing to sacrifice future generations so they can climax on their unchecked power.

Therefore I urge you, America’s citizens, to remember the permanent damage these temporary politicians are doing to this country. I urge you to remember in 2012 and to obliterate the Democrat Party politically — at every level of government.

S. 679: To Remove “Advise and Consent” Function of Senate for Numerous Federal Appointments

This, introduced by Chuck Schumer on 30 March 2011, looks like a very, very bad idea, from the perspective of anyone who wants government to be smaller and less intrusive – and wants the executive to be policed better by the legislative branch. President Obama and his czars are the obvious counterargument to this bill. They make a powerful one.

More than 200 appointed positions would be excused from the advise-and-consent requirement by S. 679. Among them are the following:

The Agriculture Department’s Commodities Credit Board
Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service Administrator
The Chief Scientist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The Commerce Department’s Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information
The Defense Department’s Assistant Secretary for Networks and Information Integration
The Assistant Secretaries of each of the armed services for financial management
The Education Department’s Assistant Secretary for Management
Education’s Commissioner of Education Statistics
All 7 of the Assistant Secretaries of Energy
The Department of Homeland Security’s Director of the Office of Domestic Preparedness
Homeland Security’s Assistant Administrator of FEMA for Grant Programs
The Department of the Treasury’s Assistant Secretary for Management and Chief Financial Officer
The Treasurer of the United States
Director of the US Mint
The Governors and Alternate Governors of the International Monetary Fund and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (amending Section 3 of the Bretton Woods Agreements Act)
Governor and Alternate Governor of the Asian Development Bank (amending Section 3(a) of the Asian Development Bank Act)
Governor and Alternate Governor of the African Development Fund (amending Section 203(a) of the African Development Fund Act)
Managing Director of the Corporation for National and Community Service
The Office of Management and Budget’s Controller, Office of Federal Financial Management
Director of the Community Development Financial Institution Fund

That’s just a sample – and it represents an awful lot of policy, money-handling, and benefit-management, with your tax dollars. The Senate proposes to let the president appoint people to these positions without explicit prior oversight. The sheer possibilities for graft and bribery here are colossal – and that’s before we even get to the possibilities for covert policy implementation.

The Senate may be naïve enough to think presidents “should” simply be trusted to appoint honest brokers to these positions. With the Obama administration’s record of attempting one executive end-run after another around due-process law, such senatorial sentiment seems like willful stupidity. But Obama is not the first president to appoint questionable individuals to second-tier federal positions. There is a long history of problems or perceived problems in this area of executive privilege. And that’s the point of consensual government, checks and balances, and separation of powers.

The list in S. 679 includes all the legislative affairs directors for the federal departments, which would mean that a president’s appointees to these positions would be entirely loyal to him, not Congress. Add that to all the key positions in which money or statistics could be mishandled behind the scenes. (The Chief Scientist for NOAA could well be the most important appointment in the US federal government these days. The Commodity Credit Board and the Community Development Financial Institution Fund would be extremely efficient vote-buying vehicles in the wrong hands. The skullduggery that could result from unreviewed appointments to the IMF and the Asian and African development funds doesn’t bear thinking about.)

Now is not the time to express this kind of confidence in the executive. In fact, the case is the exact opposite. In terms of political administration, S. 679 would be a good head start on turning all of America into Chicago. Here are the Republicans who co-sponsored it with Chuck Schumer:

Alexander (TN)

Brown (MA)

Collins (ME)

Johanns (NE)

Kyl (AZ)

Lugar (IN)

McConnell (KY)

A Patriot’s Pause

On Thursday, as part of the new House rules package, members of the United States House of Representatives will read the United States Constitution from the House floor. This is a reflection of a call from “the genius of the American people,” as Alexander Hamilton so aptly described the American people in The Federalist, that Congress not forget the guiding principles set forth in our nation’s Constitution. After all, in a republic it is the people who rule through their representatives. Even James Madison, who believed that “Liberty is to faction, what air is to fire,” would be thrilled that Congress has taken the time out of bickering to remember the foundations of our country.

George Washington would be especially pleased. He stressed in his farewell address that Americans should not let divisiveness drive the country into demise. “The ultimate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissensions, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.” What better way for Congress to unite than to honor the document (brought about by a providentially inspired unity of 13 wildly divergent states in 1787) that so aptly defines the handbook for governing and so brilliantly beholds our liberties?

This historic reading of the U.S. Constitution on the House floor, something that was introduced by the new House Republican leadership and has never been done before, is not just for show. These new House rules have teeth: they hold proposed legislation up to the light of the Constitution, requiring that each bill or joint resolution introduced in the 112th Congress be accompanied by a “statement citing as specifically as practicable the power or powers granted to Congress in the Constitution to enact the bill or joint resolution.”

Why we distrust you

As Margaret Thatcher reminded us in her eulogy to Ronald Reagan we have Reagan’s example to follow and help lead us into the future. As the centennial anniversary of Reagan’s birth dawns across America the 112th Congress will begin their first day at work by a full reading of the Constitution of the United States of America.

This will be a bold and long waited for action that should be the first order of business for every newly elected Congress. The Reagan example encourages us to hold true to our firm principles and act upon them. Allies once looked toward America for this firm leadership. America as a great force and spirit historically lifted the world.

This 112th Congress will seek out a new resolve to come together and meet the challenges that face America. New members of Congress must bring forth a Reagan candidness and tough approach toward establishing new relationships. Just as Reagan exclaimed in reaching out to Gorbachev, freshmen members of Congress should greet returning members with “Let me tell you why it is that we distrust you.”

American Patriots For Liberty

A new organization just popped up on Facebook. This is in response to the local Tea Party being co-opted by the MDGOP as well as, the local MD chapter of AFP. It seems so many conservative groups who begin with the right intentions and the right people, are overtaken by ego’s, self-serving interests and political opportunists. It seems it is easier to co-opt and organization when those people are fighting a war on both sides. So many in the Tea party are fighting against socialism, but also with many who call themselves conservatives, but who are not. The country club Republican is back with a vengeance and trying to steal the Tea Party for their election purposes.

Well, it seems a few in Maryland are fed up with it all. It would be nice to keep things open to all and allow anyone to come in. However, that is how the Salisbury Tea Party came to an end. Things must be controlled in a tighter fashion and members must be known, as well as, their intentions. A leaderless organization is pure and true ideology, but alas, also the quickest way to fail.

Some of the things American Patriots For Liberty stand for:

Freedom
Liberty
The American Constitution
The U.S. Republic
The American People
Principle over Party
A strong National Defense
The Free Market
The Fair/Flat Tax

This is a new organization that is just coming together and was born from the phone calls between just a few locals on the Eastern Shore of Maryland a month ago. More information on them will be comign soon as they are intent on not being co-opted and building a non-profit chapter.
