NTTIAWWI–Actually, TIAWWI

So the black robed tyrants have once again proven that they have a different copy of the U.S. Constitution than the rest of us and that we still must view them as the final arbiter on the law.

Not only have you never heard me mutter nttiawwi(not that there is anything wrong with it), you never will and I am far from alone on this.

The AG of Texas, Ken Paxton, issued a statement concerning the latest miscarriage of justice by the SCOTUS. A link to his full opinion can be found HERE in pdf form.
His summary is as follows:

County clerks and their employees retain religious freedoms that may provide accommodation of their religious objections to issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Justices of the peace and judges also may claim that the government forcing them to conduct same-sex wedding ceremonies over their religious objections, particularly when other authorized individuals have no objection to conducting such ceremonies, is not the least restrictive means of furthering any compelling governmental interest in ensuring that such ceremonies occur. Importantly, the strength of any particular religious accommodation claim depends on the particular facts of each case.

AG Paxton also stated that the various officials that refuse to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples may face legal issues and that his office will assist them, as well as “numerous lawyers” who stand ready to defend them pro bono. Certainly NWWT, IMHO.

In Alabama, Senate Bill 377 passed by a 22-3 vote and has now moved to the House. SB377 “would end state issued marriage licenses, while providing marriage contracts as an alternative.”

This is just the latest outrage perpetrated on this once great nation, the list is long. It is past time to fight the left, it’s time to Alinsky the left.

Sultan Knish has some excellent ideas on that subject which can be found HERE, along with this wonderful image.

It is also necessary to continue to repeat that homosexuals represent a tiny percentage of the population, according to the Center for Disease Control’s National Health Interview Survey(pdf HERE), 1.6% of the population. It isn’t possible for that small a group, even if all of them were activists, to cause such a stir. It requires the concerted efforts by the leftists in this country to rip and tear away the fabric of our society by toppling the foundation upon which is built.

I will fight this agenda in any way I can. I will continue to mock and shun those who practice or support the practitioners of deviant sex.

They have the God given rights we all have and nothing more.

Wisconsin Burning

If you follow current events, the John Doe investigations in Wisconsin may ring a familiar note, and likely it is something that you are familiar with by name and vague generalities only.  I was aware that that Governor Scott Walker had been investigated for campaign illegalities and had been exonerated, and that the investigation was given the name “John Doe” because the names of possible co-conspirators were unknown.

democratic-party-wisconsinBut, reading David French’s excellent reporting at National Review left me completely stunned.  And now, I am left with a feeling of anger and disillusion, as well as an uncomfortable sense of familiarity with times and events long ago.  French describes this activity by the Democrat Party as “lawfare.”

a process whereby rogue regimes or organizations abuse legal doctrines and processes to accomplish through sheer harassment and attrition what can’t be accomplished through legitimate diplomatic means.

It is hardly a new concept.  The very same Democrat Party used these tactics over 50 years ago in my home state of Mississippi.  The primary enforcers of Party doctrine in those days was the Ku Klux Klan.  The victims were Black Americans who wanted nothing more than to exercise their First Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process and vote.  In turn, they were subjected to harassment, intimidation, and much, much worse.  It didn’t end with a kumbaya moment of clarity on the part of the Democrats-In-Charge.  No, it ended with the exposure of the criminal activity, arousal of public opinion, and by the direct intervention of the FBI.

In Wisconsin, the victims were Tea Party conservatives who wanted nothing more than to exercise their first Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process.  In turn, they were harassed, intimidated, and threatened with jail if they even spoke about the investigation.  Personal property was illegally seized.  Raids on conservative families were conducted by local Police in the dead of night.  The enforcer of Party doctrine was the Wisconsin Judiciary, who rubber-stamped every subpoena and warrant requested by a Democrat District Attorney in this modern day witch hunt.

Until this moment, there has been no exposure of the criminal partisan activity in Wisconsin.  There has been no opportunity to arouse public opinion.  The secrecy surrounding the John Doe Investigations has been all-encompassing, allowing for only the barest of details to emerge – selectively leaked by the DA.  Appeals are currently pending in both the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court.  The Department of Justice is absent, complicit by its silence.  No intervention by the FBI is forthcoming.

Now, we are awake.  And we are watching.

Healthcare.gov: the latest excuse, oh my!

g-cvr-131107-obama-todd-545p.grid-3x2Isn’t it interesting how this latest excuse for the mal-performance of healthcare.gov fits so nicely with President Obama’s “burned by a website” expression of regret last night on NBC?

Could they be related? Nah… just a coincidence…. heh™

 

Researchers have uncovered software available on the Internet designed to overload the struggling Healthcare.gov website with more traffic than it can handle.
“ObamaCare is an affront to the Constitutional rights of the people,” a screenshot from the tool, which was acquired by researchers at Arbor Networks, declares. “We HAVE the right to CIVIL disobedience!”

Gingrich: “I can no longer endorse Gregg Harper”

Conservative Blogging Legend, Nuke Gingrich has concluded that 3-term Congressman, Gregg Harper no longer deserves the endorsement and support of common-sense conservative voters in the MS-3rd district.

“He hasn’t accomplished anything, he hasn’t done anything, and given the opportunity to make a principled stand, he caved faster than a spelunker on meth,” said Gingrich, amid fragrant clouds of Macanudo smoke at his southwest Mississippi compound.

“I should have recognized the bait and switch when Harper gained the support of the slimy Trent Lott.  I suppose I’m the victim of my own optimism.  But no more.  Now that Harper has shown himself to be an insider-Trent Lott Republican instead of a Common-Sense Conservative, I have decided that I can no longer  support him.”

gregg-harper-ms3Gingrich’s endorsement in the 2008 Republican Primary was seen by some as a pivotal moment for the Harper campaign, as polls which had been trending for his opponent, shifted dramatically and decisively in Harper’s favor.  He won going away.  It was an old fashioned whoopin’.

“I questioned Harper’s vote last week to end the battle against Obamacare, and politely asked for a response.  To date, Harper has refused to provide any answer at all, other than to send out a Press release, chock-full of fluffy piffle.”

Gingrich has provided the Blog with a copy of the note he sent to the Congressman in response to Harper’s “explanation” for the surrender vote, entitled “A Responsibility to Govern.”

October 17, 2013

Dear Congressman Harper:
 
Please tell me. 
 
Did you read the Bill before you voted for it? 
 
I understand it was an eleventh hour vote responding to a real or imagined crisis (this seems to have become the standard operating procedure, hasn’t it?).
 
Did you question the special $2.9 billion sweet deal for Kentucky?
 
Wouldn’t it have been appropriate to offer a clean, two-day CR to allow the Bill to be read by the Members, and posted to the internet as has been promised previously?
 
A Responsibility to Govern, indeed! 
 
Sincerely,
 
Nuke Gingrich

CharlierossInterestingly enough, Gingrich’s old nemesis, The Club for Growth is making a splashy re-entry into Mississippi politics for the first time since 2008.  The CfG has endorsed a Primary challenger to veteran senator Thad Cochran.  Losing Gingrich’s support may provide an opening for the other recent favorite of The Club for Growth, Charlie Ross.   “I may have to go reconsider my position on CfG,” Gingrich painfully noted.

What Is A Police State?

Guest post, by Rodney Lee Conover:   Your ex-girfriend may have a nuclear device

.

I hear a lot of people complaining that the Obama Administration is leading us down a path where one day we will be living in a police state.

I ask you this:  What do you consider “a police state?”  Does it mean residing a place where authorities are standing in your living room, watching everything you do and waiting to place you in shackles if you violate any new “thought police” statutes?  Is it like the old Soviet Union or the current North Korean regime?  What?

While you’re thinking about that, let me tell you where you live right now:  You live in a country where the Federal government can (notice I didn’t say “does” or “might” or “will”) can listen to every phone call you make, read every email you send or receive and track your movements once you step outside your home.  They can access your IRS information on how much you make, where you make it and your perceived intentions regarding tax-relation activity.  Soon they will have all your medical records and can see what you’ve been treated for and what type of doctor you’ve been to.  And they can do that without your permission…

jimclapperliarI’m not saying they are doing it. I’m merely pointing out that they can. And they now have been dragged kicking and screaming into admitting it in public, with the exception of a few lies in front of Congress by the head of the NSA, James Clapper (currently the Director of National Intelligence).  My question to you is simple:  What is a police state?

If for whatever reason, the Federal government decides you are someone of interest, they can, without any concern for your Fourth Amendment rights, investigate all forms of your communication, Facebook postings, Google searches, cell phone conversations, whatever.  And if they hear the right buzzwords (they decide the buzzwords) they can do the same to your friends, relatives, enemies, acquaintances, Facebook pals, whoever.

You know what I hear less and less of lately? That Snowden is a traitor. And for good reason.

I’ve been told over and over again that the NSA doesn’t spy on Americans.  Then they were, but they won’t.  Then they would but they couldn’t.  Then they did but they won’t anymore.  Now they just do.  This is about political power, not catching terrorists.  Grow up.  There is no time in this country’s history where the government has been given power and they didn’t abuse it.  It’s the nature of power and this is no different.  Need more?

A British newspaper, The Telegraph, is reporting that NSA staff has been using their technology designed to catch terrorists to spy on their lovers, past and present.  Yes, there’s nothing like keeping a watchful eye and ear on your ex, just in case they’ve decided to set off that nuclear device they’ve been building in the spare bedroom. The folks who swear they won’t abuse their power or use it in any way to further their careers or help a politician or oppress a fellow American in any way, are keeping tabs on what their love interests are up to.  Their phone calls, emails, Internet activity, searches and who knows what else.  I’m serious – who knows what else? Raise your hand if you think they haven’t been downloading Snowden’s hot girlfriend’s every email, photo, conversation and who knows what else?

spyingeverywhereI heard Dana Perino – someone I highly respect and admire – say that with all the intelligence they gather, the NSA is of course going to gather some information by mistake along the way.  But this is not an innocent slip-up. This is the deliberate abuse of power and denial of civil liberties guaranteed under the Constitution to their victims and all of us.  These weasels did not break the rules – they broke the law.

Until they are rooted out and held accountable, the NSA should not be in charge of anything.  The NSA is not about terrorism or spying, it is about gathering information for coercion, oppression and political extortion.  Raise your hand if you think every bit of information on President Obama’s enemies and potential adversaries are not being organized for use by the usual suspects – Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Plouffe – all of ‘em.  Go look up the Cloward–Piven strategy and get back to me if you don’t believe it.

What is a police state?

paul_lee_cruzI just hope that Senators Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul haven’t searched anything online that can be used against them in 2016 because it will be.  I hope none of their relatives, co-workers or friends have done any research or looked at any subject that will allow CNN, the NY Times, MSNBC, CBS, The Washington Post and all the others to scream the headline; “REPUBLICAN NOMINEE’S UNCLE GOOGLE’S TOPLESS ACTRESS !”  Don’t worry; I’m getting to Hillary…

I’m not exaggerating. It’s so easy now – before you had to sneak into or know somebody at the FBI willing to give you 900 confidential files of Republicans, and then explain how they got in your sitting room with your fingerprints on them.  Or you had to be married to the President and the whole thing goes away – but still it was a lot tougher then.  Now you just Instant Message your buddy at the NSA; they stop listening to their ex-girlfriend talking to that guy she met at the gas station long enough to upload enough info on anybody to find something that can be twisted into a scandal.  Or maybe you need to intimidate, say, a Supreme Court Justice into rewriting ObamaCare so it somehow seems Constitutional?…”Just say it’s a tax or something.  What can they do – you’re a frickin’ Supreme Court Judge for life, baby!”…  Just being hypothetical there.

Here’s what we know:

  • Clapper lied to Congress, nothing happens
  • The NSA says they have broken privacy “rules” 3,000 times in the past 12 months or so nothing happens
  • Again, these are not rules; they are laws that were broken
  • The law states these violations are felonies which call for up to $250,000 in fines and five years in prison for each violation No one has been charged

This is what we know. Imagine what we don’t know? If this isn’t a police state, what is?  Twenty words or less.  Thanks.
