Boehner You Make Me Sick!

The truth starts with the fact that our politicians aren’t straight shooters. What can I say about the recent house vote that keeps the government running but delays Obama Care. I mean with cowards like Boehner this is as good as it gets. Issa says Obama Care isn’t ready. No Darrell, Obama Care needs to be destroyed. It’s a colossal failure today, tomorrow and generations to come when our children have to pay for the consequences of our actions. We can’t delay it we must stick a fork in it! And the house republicans who are supposed to be our conservative heroes keep repeating this delay junk! Where are our conservatives? Healthcare is not a power that was delegated to the Federal Government. The Federal government is pathetic and why are we funding them when they don’t spend our money properly. They are embezzlers. They take your money with your consent to spend on certain things and then spend it on other things without your consent. Boehner turns my stomach and Issa and Cantor ya’all make me sick! They are domestic enemies. We have a Republican majority that holds the purse strings and if we don’t stop it now it will never happen. I mean what’s the difference between between Boehner, Cantor and a Democrat. I’m not seeing it! These are wishy-washy girly-men!

Why Romney Lost the Election

Call in Friday starts off with a call from “Machine” who makes the point that the reason that Romney lost the election was because of his choice of running mates. It is his assertion that Romney gave away the young, the Latino and the black vote because he choose Paul Ryan rather than Marco Rubio. While I’m not in agreement with this he brings up a good point about why the Republicans can’t seem to get it right.

Warriors for the Constitution

What we are seeing this week will be talked about for generations to come. The best part of the last 36 hours (during the filibuster), is that we know who is with us and who is not. Last night Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Mike Lee became our courageous constitutional warriors. The establishment doesn’t know what to do with Ted Cruz quite yet and the best advice is for them to get out of the way. These are times that try mens souls. The Summer Soldiers and Sunshine Patriots are those who call themselves conservative constitutionals and when the time comes to stand for liberty and for what needs to be stood for they shrink from their duty unwilling to fight and do what’s right. Can you hear me John McCain? Can you hear me Senator Cornyn from Texas and if you can hear me than hear this: You are an unfatherly, immoral, selfish, malicious parent willing to condemn your children to slavery. Time to call out these people and hold them accountable. Keep listening. I’m just getting started.

Stand with Ted Cruz

This broadcast is taking place as Ted Cruz is 16 hours into his filibuster on the Senate floor. God bless him. Too bad that his own party is throwing him under the bus and I hope that this is a wake up call for real constitutional conservatives.  I hope that they will see what has happened to the Republican party and I hope that it’s also a wake up call for Rand Paul. Note to Rand Paul: The Republican party is not your friend. In fact John McCain (a Democrat by any other name) actually said he’d vote for Hillary instead of Rand Paul. Also Rand Paul if you’re listening withdraw your support and your endorsement from Mitch McConnell. In case you’re wondering what the real Constitutional value of a filibuster is and how it differs from cloture and more than give it a listen.

When is Your "Enough"?

As I watch the video of a parent in Maryland get manhandled and arrested for standing up to the lies of a school board, my heart fills with an overwhelming anger and disgust. First at the propaganda and lies perpetrated upon our children through government controlled schools upon unsuspecting parents. Secondly at the people who sat and watched this happen without intervening. Thirdly, at the clear violation of our First Amendment committed by the very institutions that are charged with educating our children and that should be teaching our children to defend their Liberty.

Finally, my heart drops to my stomach realizing that this is just the beginning. You see, in 2011 our federal government passed a bill known as HR347/S1794 The Federal Building and Grounds Improvement Act. I did what I could to educate America on the insidious nature of this bill. Read my analysis as published in 2011 in this article; “HR347/S1794: A Trespass on the First Amendment.”

But this bill was sponsored by Rep. Tom Rooney of Florida, a “conservative, constitutionally minded, republican” and my analysis was disregarded as something that would “never happen in America”.

This bill was passed into law with overwhelming support from our so-called “conservative, constitutionally minded, republican House.” HR347 makes what this concerned parent did, on the federal level, a federal offense punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison. So if this parent had been at a Townhall meeting held by his Representative, Senator, or the President, he would have been “lawfully” arrested and sentenced. Lawfully, mind you, but NOT Constitutionally.

When we tamely allow something like this to happen to members of our community, we become cheerleaders to the very tyranny that will enslave us.

I am reminded by what Sam Adams said, “’if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.’ It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event.” (Essay, written under the pseudonym “Candidus,” in The Boston Gazette (14 October 1771))

Sam Adams says of our liberties:

“We have receiv’d them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas’d them for us with toil and danger and expence of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath’d to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. — Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance.”

Sam Adams, as cited above.

I will make you this promise, before I am charged with a crime that will put me in prison for 10 years…I will EARN my sentence. How about you? Fed up? Ready to pull your kids out of government schools? Or perhaps, the indoctrination of your child into a God-hating, government-loving, socialist-indoctrinating prison camp, is not bad enough….not yet. And if not now, then perhaps not ever. Perhaps slavery is most powerful when you don’t realize you’re a slave.

Debt Spending Deadbeats

debt spending by the deadbeatsOn Friday, President Barack Obama told workers at a Ford plant in Liberty, Missouri, “if we don’t raise the debt ceiling, we’re deadbeats.”  This is a prime example of “fundamentally transforming” America.  This is part of the strategy that leftists use – change the definition of words, seize the vocabulary.  Obama wants you to believe that racking up bills that you can’t pay for in the first place, and then borrowing money to pay those bills, and then passing on that debt to your children is the responsible thing.  It used to be that people understood that if you robbed from your children you were, fundamentally, a deadbeat.

Thomas Paine tells a story in 1776 about a conversation he overheard by such outlaws like we see in government today…

“I once felt all that kind of anger, which a man ought to feel, against the mean principles that are held by the Tories: a noted one, who kept a tavern at Amboy, was standing at his door, with as pretty a child in his hand, about eight or nine years old, as I ever saw, and after speaking his mind as freely as he thought was prudent, finished with this unfatherly expression, ‘Well! give me peace in my day.’”

Thomas Paine calls men who pass on problems to their children “UNFATHERLY”.  How is it that we are taught that we are so much smarter than our founders that we have to redefine their wisdom by redefining the Constitution?  Here we have Thomas Paine in 1776 giving the correct definition of “deadbeat” and today that concept eludes us?  What does that say about ANY member of Congress who will vote to increase the debt ceiling?  Yes, I said they ALL are wicked deadbeats, regardless of party affiliation, if they vote to increase the debt ceiling.

How many in the Republican Party have declared that they cannot do what is necessary to subdue this out of control government because they don’t want to get “blamed” for the government shut down?  They don’t want to interfere with the party’s chances during the election?  They are saying, “Well, give me peace in my day!”  We don’t have to call them names, because according to Thomas Paine, they have CLASSIFIED THEMSELVES as the REAL deadbeats!

Do you want REAL solutions?  Just listen as Thomas Paine continues with his story to give us REAL direction…

“Not a man lives on the continent but fully believes that a separation must some time or other finally take place, and a generous parent should have said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;” and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty. Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America.”

When are YOU going to become that “generous parent” and separate YOURSELF from these wicked, deadbeats playing party politics?  In fundamentally-transformed liberal wonderland, up is down and down is up…spending like a drunken sailor is good, attempting to reign in the drunkards is bad.  Can someone go get the grown-ups who know that wonderland isn’t real?  Can someone please find a parent in government who loves their child or their grandchild more than their money, their party, and themselves?

Bad Republicans vs Good Democrats

It’s not a secret about what Allen West thinks about me and it seems as if the word has gotten around. Recently a few folks who supported Allen West financially asked me a question. They asked; “KrisAnne what is the one question that I can ask of Allen West?” This got me thinking and if you want to ask Allen West the one question, I’ll tell you in the broadcast. But actually this leads me to the larger question that I want to address in today’s broadcast. A question that I think is really important. The question is; “Which is better? A bad Republican or a good Democrat.” Interesting to ponder but before it can be answered we have to know what Republicans really stand for. Listen in.

McCain, a Democrat by any Other Name

The morning started off with a belly laugh. Recently Vladimir Putin penned an op-ed and truth be known it was very much a commentary on King Barry more than anything else. Well this morning as I was preparing for today’s show I came across a headline of an op-ed written by John McCain in response to Putin’s op-ed and without even reading it started to laugh. I mean here we have a Republican (well he at least calls himself that) penning a letter for publication in the Russian press in response to Putin’s letter (calling out Obama) which appeared in the NY Times. Do you see the irony here? I did and that was why I couldn’t stop laughing. In today’s broadcast we’re going to review Mr. McCain’s letter. Maybe you’ll get a chuckle too.

Cato Institute Declares States Are Not Sovereign

The New York Times published on September 3, 2013 and article written by Robert Levy, chairman of the Cato Institute, on the “Limitations of Nullification”. I have had the honor of having personal discussions with Mr. Levy on several issues and even had the opportunity to debate him on the issue of nullification in a forum in South Florida. It will be no surprise to Mr. Levy that I disagree with his opinion. Opinions aside, I would like to have the opportunity to present the facts.

Mr. Levy’s main premise is that the States have the option to not agree and not enforce federal law, but they do not have the ability to prevent the federal government from enforcing its laws within the States.

“That’s because federal officials are authorized to enforce their own laws, even if they cannot compel the states to do so. Thus, on the second point, the nullifiers are wrong: states cannot impede federal enforcement of a federal law merely because the state deems it unconstitutional. That is up to the federal courts.”

Mr. Levy’s premise is flawed and a mere review of the facts makes that clear. This country was built upon the foundation of free, independent, and sovereign States.

“Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States…” Lee Resolution June 7, 1776

“We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled,…solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.” Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776 (emphasis added)

The fundamental foundation of this country is built upon the understanding that our States are free, independent and sovereign in the same manner that Great Britain, Spain, France and Germany are free, independent, and sovereign (e.g the State of Great Britain). Because the States are free, independent, and sovereign countries they had the authority to come together in a contractual agreement, otherwise termed as a “compact” that created the Union and the federal government. The federal government is the creation of the States and the Constitution. The formation of the constitutional compact did not alter that free, independent, sovereign nature.

I find it ironic that Mr. Levy quotes Justice Scalia in Printz v. United States to make his point. Levy’s use of Scalia’s language in this case is legally inaccurate. Justice Scalia takes great effort in this case to maintain the sovereignty of the States over the federal government, citing many examples of how the States are a vital check in the federal power balance.See the multitude of ways Scalia reasserts the sovereignty of the States in this case:

“…[the States] they retained “a residuary and inviolable sovereignty,” (citing The Federalist No. 39, at 245).

“…the Guarantee Clause, Art. IV, §4, which “presupposes the continued existence of the states and . . . those means and instrumentalities which are the creation of their sovereign and reserved rights,” (citing Helvering v. Gerhardt, 304 U.S. 405, 414-415 (1938)).

“Residual state sovereignty was also implicit, of course, in the Constitution’s conferral upon Congress of not all governmental powers, but only discrete, enumerated ones, Art. I, §8, which implication was rendered express by the Tenth Amendment’s assertion.”

“It is the very principle of separate state sovereignty that such a law offends, and no comparative assessment of the various interests can overcome that fundamental defect.” (citing by comparison Bowsher v. Synar – 478 U.S. 714, 736 (1986))

“In the compound republic of America, the power surrendered by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each subdivided among distinct and separate departments. Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” (citing The Federalist No. 51, at 323)

Nothing Scalia said in Printz ever asserted that the States must just sit back and take federal enforcement of unconstitutional law. As a matter of fact this case says exactly the opposite.

Levy claims James Madison supports the premise that the Supreme Court has a type of Supremacy over the States, quoting The Virginia Assembly Report 1800. This could not be a more inaccurate statement of James Madison’s view of the States and the Supreme Court. A complete reading of the document Levy cites, shows Madison’s point actually contradicts Mr. Levy’s assertion.

“If the decision of the judiciary be raised above the authority of the sovereign parties to the Constitution (i.e. the States)… dangerous powers, not delegated, may not only be usurped and executed by the other departments, but that the judicial department, also, may exercise or sanction dangerous powers beyond the grant of the Constitution…” Virginia Assembly Report 1800, James Madison (emphasis added)

By this statement it is clear that Madison never meant to assign the Supreme Court supremacy over the sovereignty of the States. As if to punctuate his point, Madison continues;

“consequently, that the ultimate right of the parties to the Constitution (i.e. the States), to judge whether the compact has been dangerously violated, must extend to violations by one delegated authority as well as by another–by the judiciary as well as by the executive, or the legislature.” Virginia Assembly Report 1800, James Madison. (emphasis added)

With all due respect to the Cato Institute, Mr. Levy’s confidence in the Supreme Court is misplaced, not founded by fact or history, and is contrary to the very foundation of this nation; the sovereignty of the States. We must remember that the Supreme Court is yet the third branch of the federal government; it is not an independent governmental body. For Mr. Levy’s “limits on nullification” to be true, the States are no longer free, independent, and sovereign entities, but merely subjects to the federal government with no recourse to limit or control the power the States themselves delegated to it. For Mr. Levy’s opinion to be true, the only limit upon the federal government’s power is its own will. A central government’s whose only limitation is its own will is a Kingdom and not a Republic.

“for the federal government to enlarge its powers by forced construction of the constitutional charter which defines them…so as to destroy the meaning and effect of the particular enumeration…the obvious tendency and inevitable result… would be, to transform the present republican system of the United States into an absolute, or, at best, a mixed monarchy.” Virginia Resolutions of 1798, James Madison

Is Mr. Levy asserting that the Cato Institute supports the premise that this country is to operate as a Kingdom?

Happy Constitution Day Patriots

Since it is Constitution day, class will be in session.  To start with when a government is not bound or limited by the Constitution, then what is it’s limitation? Nothing but it’s own will! And when it’s only bound by it’s own will then it is a kingdom.  So in class today we’re going to lay some foundation about the Constitution as ‘set in blood’ principles. This is what we teach, as well as the history that proves all of this. First there are a number of misconceptions we have to clear. The Constitution was not written in 1787. It actually took 700 years to create the principles of the Constitution. This is the beginning of today’s lesson and it’s waiting for you now.
