The Enemy Within

Since Pete Wilson and California Proposition 187, the California Democratic Party has been aggressively organizing illegal immigrants into a voting block. The goal of Proposition 187 was to make illegal aliens ineligible for public benefits. It was passed but never enforced. Instead, something was born of fury of fear and of desperation… something ugly, an enemy within.

There are now so many illegal immigrant voters in California that the left sought to legalize jury duty for non-citizens. This was for a very practical reason. There were so many non-citizens on the voting rolls that parts of California could not find sufficient jurists by the traditional method of calling on those registered to vote. An estimated 10 million Californians were summoned for jury duty in 2012 and only 4 million were eligible and available to serve.

Here’s a hint: Check your state’s jury roles for non-citizens who’ve already committed voter fraud.

Gov. Moonbeam signs California’s new Motor Voter Act (A.B.1461)

So powerful is this illegal voting block, that, for the last eight years the executive branch has been its ally, offering five MILLION illegal immigrants amnesty as “Dreamers.”

So influential is this voting block that California was the first and only state to request Obamacare for illegal immigrants.

So dominant is this La Raza funded, Democrat mob vote that illegal immigrants now hold legal drivers’ licenses in the state of California. Eight hundred thousand illegals are now licensed to drive in the State of California, but there is no voter fraud in California. Remember that.

In fact, so privileged has this entitled group of federal felons become that California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon loudly proclaimed that half his family are illegal immigrants. He boasted that they have committed document fraud on both the federal and state level. So ran Senator De Léon’s rant:

… I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.

But there’s no voter fraud. Remember that. We know there is no voter fraud worth investigating in California because the California Democrats now have super majorities in both houses. The enemy is within. A lawless conspiracy of treasonous citizens and non-citizens are committed to defrauding law abiding citizens of their constitutional rights, the fruits of their labor, and their liberties.

Most of all we can be certain that there is no voter fraud because the leader of the United States Senate. Mitch McConnell has told us so. He swears:

There’s no evidence that it (voter fraud) occurred in such a significant number that would have changed the presidential election, and I don’t think we ought to spend any federal money investigating that…

Yes America, the enemy is within.

 

End the Iran Agreement by Killing the Virtual Filibuster

With the Iranian Nuclear “treaty-not treaty- agreement” on the table, the voice of the American people as expressed kerry bowsin their legislative houses will be utterly muted. Why? Because an antiquated tool of the D.C. establishment has, again, slit the throat of the people’s voice. The Democrats will filibuster, and not in the old style manner of Cruz or Paul, but in the anonymous, effortless, no-commitment style of the 1960’s push-button filibuster, a style of filibuster actually enacted under an LBJ Democratically controlled congress in 1975. To pass the legislation that censors the Iranian nuclear agreement, conservatives and constitutionalists should kill the virtual filibuster and bid it good riddance forever.

The hour of action on killing this irresponsible filibuster has long passed. Because the push-button filibuster hides senate votes, it has allowed cowards to control our foreign policy and elite insiders to control our budgets. Today, not only will the cowards seek to appease Iran instead of stand, the cowards in the Senate will avoid a vote entirely, keeping their base acts from seeing the light of day.

The elitist Senate, since the August recess, has surprised the nation by displaying a noblesse oblige, hinting that they were, perhaps, inclined to independent thought after all. There was such a dramatic change from the usual snore and pull-for-party attitude that all America wondered. For a second, everyone actually thought that Senators were going to deliberate, a phenomenon not seen since befo1153re Watergate. For a glorious moment it appeared that the eloquent and noble minded Senate was planning to put what each senator deduced to be the best for the nation ahead of his or her own political faction. Yea, right…

This week, a per usual, as liberals returned to the city of their corruption, far from their families, their natural interests, and their constituencies, they reverted to kind. Marching in lock-step they now plan quash the vote of the Senate and House majority. They will simply silence it, for a vote condemning the oil-rich, Russian-led, Iran appeasement bill simply cannot be condoned. The liberal Senate silence us via the safe, censorship-proof tool of the “virtual” filibuster.

Since the Civil War, factional battle lines have never been so hardened. Into this climate of faction, enter mullahthe overreaching executive, the tyrannical courts, and a filibuster that effectively shuts the mouths of the American people. There is nothing good about any of this and, essentially, because of the 1975 cloture rules, the congress has become a dead letter institution allowing the other branches to become overgrown and hideous. End the “virtual” filibuster now.

As much as one wanted to suspend disbelief and be surprised that, after all their grandstanding, liberals went forward in lock-step unity, it is even harder to be surprised that the do-nothing GOP establishment chain of fools did not procure a simple up or down vote when this entire matter came up last spring. The GOP leadership, in fact every member of both houses, knew this would happen. They knew no vote on the most blatantly weak foreign policy ever initiated by an United States president would not even receivea Senate vote. Yes, they knew it. Yet they marched harmoniously together in a show of bi-partisanship. Why? Only those privy to cloak room agreements know for sure, but it is certain that, even if the GOP leadership really had a wit of sense, no deal with a straight up or down vote would have made it through the current Senate cloture process.

One senator, a Senator Murphy of Connecticut, claims that a veto fight would embarrass the country. This is proof that the cloture procedure has become a cloak of cowardice, censorship, and tyranny, for Palin-Rallies-Tea-Partiers-AP-Photo-640x480while a veto fight takes fewer votes than a cloture fight the liberals want no part of it. The liberals have no desire that the voice of the people is heard by their directly elected representatives.

A veto fight is the constitutional way the executive and legislative branches are to engage. The founders never envisioned the current fights over cloture as part of the legislative process. The modernized, no-commitment, liberal cloture, the push-button filibuster, is the way of the shiftless, corrupt, and irresponsible. The vermin are hiding in its darkness. Before whom does Senator Murphy fear embarrassment? Would he be embarrassed before Russia? How about Iran? Maybe he’s afraid of the mocking words of the Chinese? Are Murphy and the President afraid to defend the constitutional processes of a free people before the dictators and tyrants of this world? The push button filibuster is the way of cowards. It is time to end it once and for all and ending it to yell at the top of our lungs about the evil before us in Iran would be a lasting and profound historical statement.

A Tyranny of Judicial Madness Continues in Oklahoma

Recently, the Oklahoma State Supreme Court ruled that a statue of the Ten Commandments on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds was contrary to the Oklahoma Constitution because, the court held, the Ten Commandments jack-nicholson-the-shiningbenefited a religion. Which religion it was that benefited from the monument is apparently a somewhat abstract concept to the Oklahoma court. Nevertheless, even though the monument doesn’t benefit any certain religion, it must be damned because it is part of Jewish and Christian faiths. Logic is blind to its assumptions. In Oklahoma insane assumptions about religion have led to a judicial tyranny that history will characterize as madness.

Simply, a faith is not necessarily a religion. One may have a faith in a Just and Orderly Creator and seek Him by way of a variety of religions. One may even believe in the Christian Messiah and seek him in by way of variety of Christian denominations. Indeed, this last scenario was the one that the founding fathers were most concerned about. The great variety of Christian faiths that arose after the Protestant Reformation were welcomed without governmental judgment in the New World. Jefferson sheathed the sword first wielded among Christians by Constantine the Great.

A lie believed is a tyranny of the soul. A lie enforced by a government is grounds for its abolition. Legislators in Oklahoma are calling for the impeachment of all seven justices who can’t see beyond their highly elevated noses. That’s not enough. The Oklahoma legislators are also calling for judicial reformation, a reformation that bars the state bar from monopolizing judicial appointments. That might go far enough, but it’s still an open question. Attorney General Scott Pruitt spent far too much time emphasizing that the monument was historical in nature.

Arguing that the Ten Commandments are of historic importance to our legal system, a systemTen-Commandments-statue-JPG that has now ‘evolved,’ is simply inadequate to reformation. Tell the truth: the monuments to the Ten Commandments are a symbol of our common faith that a Just God rules; that from Him all justice proceeds and before Him all our human justice will be judged. This is not a religion. Catholicism is a religion. Classical Reform Judaism is a religion.

For a century, Americans and their justices have been fed on the fat of the lie that governments can exist without a soul and, like the dust beneath our feet, continue objectively on. It’s just not true. If our government loses its soul, its humanity, we, as a nation, lose ours. Every key idea from how the value of humanity contrasts with the animal kingdom, to the meaning of nature’s voice in the relationship between the genders in marriage requires a primary axiom for logical conclusions to foster laws. All of these matters require and depend on a faith that a just Creator, the God of Nature, is out there somewhere. This is not a religion. When it concerns matters of jurisprudence, it’s a philosophy. The founders called their version of this philosophy Deism.

The Deism of some of the founders was an Enlightenment view of the Divine Right of the individual and of the Creator’s limits on the rights of collective society, of government. When this faith or belief that a Just Creator is ‘out there somewhere’ changes into a belief about how people should seek Him, the faith can be named religious. Otherwise, a faith that a Just Creator reigns is the philosophic foundation for the panoply of all religions. (When Deism moves from its rational, philosophic, intelligent design ideas to worship of some sort, it, too, can be called religious; however, it is generally too disorganized to make it as a formal religion.)

For instance, apparently, the highly intelligent and well-educated Oklahoma justices ignored the claim Islam makes on the Ten Commandments. The claim is somewhat tenuous and is perhaps made by some for less than forthright TJFlag-ForceCannotDisjoinreasons, but, because of the claim on the commandments made by others in Islam, it can be fairly argued that also among Muslims, the role of the Creator as a lawgiver, One Who governs in the affairs of all people, is understood.

Apparently, a satanic church, in the firm belief that equality of outcomes is the same thing as justice, petitioned to have an idol placed along side the monument to the Ten Commandments. That idol is a summons to worship while the Ten Commandments forbid anyone from worshiping any stone monument. Hence, as a summons to worship, it does profit a religious viewpoint. Most importantly, a free people dedicated to laws and justice has no need to give equal time to a self-proclaimed god of lawlessness and evil.

Likewise, a Hindu group also wanted to place a symbol of its worship on the capitol’s grounds. If that symbol is not a call to worship, and if it is a symbol of the belief that a Creator somewhere rules and gives laws to people, put it to a vote. The Ten Commandments are genuinely elegant in appearance, eloquent in letter, and inspiring in content. Those are plenty of reasons for the electorate to favor one monument and not another. In any case, put it to the public, not to un-elected, poorly educated, elitist, shriveled heads with gavels for brains.

To make a long story short: A Hindu, a satanist, and an American walked before the bar. None got justice, but they all heard the insane laughter of evil men howling as they butchered a free nation.

Texas National Guard Border Surge Undermined by Federal Air Lift Program

We are in a constitutional crisis.

Even as the Texas legislature counts the costs of border control efforts forced on it by the White House’s flagrant violation of current
BN-HS634_txbord_M_20150403134152immigration laws, the White House has engineered a cynical countermeasure. A new State Department and Department of Homeland Security program employs federal taxpayer dollars to fly the children of parents immunized from deportation, directly into the United States. This is, essentially, undermining the free people of a sovereign state. That is a constitutional crisis. One that can be resolved if the Senate will end the filibuster.

Costs for the Texas National Guard’s counter surge at the border have been escalating, becoming as much 400 million dollars per year. Even so, Governor Perry’s bold moves in guarding Texas taxpayers remain popular because the shock of last summer’s border kid fiasco is still a bitter memory.

Governor Perry and other Texas officials credit the National Guard deployment for a significant drop off in illegal immigrant apprehensions, but the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson credits the continued work of his federal authorities.

However, during the peak of the unaccompanied children crisis most of the federal agents were busy “processing” the illegal border kids who willingly turned themselves over to “authorities.” Texas Representative
kids Louie Gohmert told Fox News that he had never seen his district border area so understaffed and overwhelmed.

Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the effort by Texas to secure the border has slowed the surge of immigrants from 1,000 crossings per day to 10,000 per month. Perhaps the appearance of the Texas National Guard only intimidated the “coyotes” who trafficked in unaccompanied minors throughout the surge. Despite Governor Abbot’s disappointment at these results, the plainly illegal executive actions of the Obama administration in pursuit of a Texas-proof way to get illegal immigrants into the country, are proof positive that Jeh Johnson’s assessment of the Texas National Guard’s failure is simply failed propaganda. Apparently, a surge of 10,000 per month is not large enough to suit the current administration.

Just as the once great state of California is simmering in an understated drought teetering on the edge of a full-blown disaster, so our entire nation is in an understated constitutional crisis. The crisis at the border is only one sign of an executive branch that has sided with America’s enemies. Yes, enemies. Any nation that would support wave after wave of illegal incursions into the United States is an enemy. Sadly, other examples abound in every arena of American life from environmental protection to foreign policy and educational overreach.

The United States voter has unhesitatingly risen to the occasion and given Congress a chance to bring the branches of government back into constitutional harmony, but Congress will not. Specifically, the Senate will not. The Senate must stand up for the Constitution by sacrificing its extra-constitutional tradition of the filibuster. If the people’s House and the Congress make a law curtailing an illegal executive action, the President’s veto will not stand up in obamacourt.

The Senate could still keep a wide range of filibuster traditions alive if it only ended the filibuster with regards to laws designed to reign in illegal executive actions by the executive branch. Either way the Senate must act or it is as complicit in our current constitutional crisis as is the President of the United States an his henchmen.
