Is Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty?

Posted by Mark on October 28, 2009

On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton gave a presentation in St. Paul, MN on the subject of global warming. In this 4-minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty that is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.

WorldNetDaily has a good analysis of the treaty:

There has been considerable debate raised about Monckton’s conclusion that the Copenhagen Treaty would cede US sovereignty. His comments appear to be based upon his interpretation of the The Supremacy Clause in the US Constitution (Article VI, paragraph 2). This clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. TREATIES as the supreme law of the land. Concerns have been raised in the past that a particularly ambitious treaty may supersede the US Constitution. In the 1950s, a constitutional amendment, known as the Bricker Amendment, was proposed in response to such fears, but it failed to pass. You can read more about the Bricker Amendment in a 1953 Time Magazine article:

Obama’s College Thesis: Let’s Be Careful Out There

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

Rush was all over this story in his first hour today.
The internet is abuzz with the quotes, attributed to a Time article by Joe Klein.
And, it certainly sounds believable, based on other statements from BHO.
But so far, no one can find the Joe Klein post on the Time Blog, appropriately called Swampland. And so far the supposed ten pages are no where to be found.
Here is the blog Ledeen sources.

So, let’s be careful out there until we can find the quotes.

Obama Fails in Silencing the Free Press

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

I strongly believe when this is allowed to happen, our government will be allowed to silence anyone whom it does not favor. What would be happening if other news organizations started to speak the truth about the Obama White House or simple ask why and raise questions about policy?

“What it’s really about to me is the Executive Branch of the government trying to tell the press how it should behave. I mean, this democracy — we know this — only works with a free and unfettered press to provide information,” he said – Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik

Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. said the administration was potentially in violation of the Constitution with its attempt to restrict access to the “eyes and ears” of the country.

An Indefinite Government

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

Interesting in light of our Government’s actions of late:

I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on the objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents – J. Madison

“Compared to today, yesteryear’s vision vastly differs in what congressional actions are constitutionally permissible. How might today’s congress, president and courts square their behavior with that of their predecessors? The most generous interpretation of their behavior I can give is their misunderstanding of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution that reads, “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States.” Misuse of the “general welfare” clause serves as warrant for Congress to do just about anything upon which it can secure a majority vote.” – Walter E. Williams Ideas on Liberty – August 2006

Is our Nation on this path?

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny” – Thomas Jefferson

“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” – James Madison

Does our goverment want the economy to fail?

Posted by Mark on October 22, 2009

“These banks that were too big to fail are now bigger,” Barofsky said. “Government has sponsored and supported several mergers that made them larger and that guarantee, that implicit guarantee of moral hazard, the idea that the government is not going to let these banks fail, which was implicit a year ago, is now explicit, we’ve said it. So if anything, not only have there not been any meaningful regulatory reform to make it less likely, in a lot of ways, the government has made such problems more likely.

“Potentially we could be in more danger now than we were a year ago,” he added.

"If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream."

Posted by Mark on October 22, 2009

— One Of The Best Explanations Of Why Obama Won The Election From a teacher in the Nashville area.

THE COW AND THE ICE CREAM

“We are worried about “the cow” when it is all about the “Ice Cream”

The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching
third grade this year.
The presidential election was heating up and some of the children
showed an interest.
I decided we would have an election for a class president.

We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and
the class would vote..

To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members..
We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.
We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked
to run for the top spot.

The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates
were good kids.
I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of
parental support.
I had never seen Olivia`s mother.

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.
Jamie went first.
He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better
place. He ended by promising to do his very best.
Everyone applauded and he sat down.

Now is was Olivia`s turn to speak.

Her speech was concise.
She said, “If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream.”
She sat down.
The class went wild. “Yes! Yes!
We want ice cream.”

She surely would say more. She did not have to.
A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream?
She wasn`t sure.
Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it.
She didn`t know.
The class really didn`t care.
All they were thinking about was ice cream.

Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.

Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 52
percent of the people reacted like nine year olds. They want ice cream.
The other 48 percent know they`re going to have to feed the cow and
clean up the mess.

Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone — that they
have not first taken away from someone else.

Priceless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

National Credit Card Maxed Out

Posted by Mark on October 22, 2009

“In the Senate’s first vote on health care spending this year,” Mr. McConnell said, “a bipartisan majority rejected the Democrat leadership’s attempt to add another quarter-trillion dollars to the national credit card without any plan to pay for it. With a record deficit and a ballooning national debt, the American people are saying enough is enough.”

Does anything more need to be said?

Why can’t we control Fox?

Posted by Mark on October 20, 2009

“Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn’t absolutely control,” Dunn said, admitting that the strategy “did not always make us popular in the press.” – Anita Dunn.

The Obama camp claims to have handled most media organizations except the elusive Fox News. It may seem simple but perhaps this is why Fox has been targeted by the White House in an effort to discredit the news organization because absolute control cannot be obtained.

Who Governs Speech? Who Decides Racism?

Posted by Mark on October 15, 2009

What a disgusting turn of events. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not honest brokers of free speech or who may or may not be racist in this country. I have serious doubts Jesse and Al are honest anything.
