What Constitution???

The usurpation of the United States Constitution by local governments has gone entirely too far. If the U.S. Supreme C0urt doesn't step in soon, it may be too late.

When an American veteran and war hero is told he can't fly the American flag on his own property, we've gone too far. When a cross has to be removed from private property, we've gone too far. When students are no longer allowed to say a prayer in a public school, we've gone too far. When an American citizen is convicted and sent to prison for 8 years for possession of a firearm that was safely locked in the trunk of his car, unloaded, and disassembled. . . we've gone too far.

City councils now have the authority to write city ordinances that have the full force and effect of law, and are doing so with practically no regard, whatsoever, for the U.S. Constitution. From ridiculous zoning ordinances to outlandish firearms laws. . . these political entities have all lost their collective minds and represent chaos at its worst.

The freedoms our soldiers of present and past generations fought for are, each day, abdicated to these fiefdoms whose rule is worse than the hated Shire Reeves of 15th Century England. Politics in this country was once respected. It is now feared and hated. How much longer until we have complete mob rule and vigilante justice by these thugs in city hall???

It is time for the U.S. Supreme court to ACT! If a city government convicts an American citizen and sends him to prison for legally owning a weapon, (I said, legally), then that city government should be prosecutred by the federal government to the FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!!!

We did it for other civil rights, . . . we can do it again. It is time to elect legislators, Congress and Senate members with ETHICS! Stop bowing to political correctness, and stand up for EVERY Amendment to the U.S. Constitution instead of picking and choosing which ones we THINK are important and ought to be enforced!!!

Enough is enough! Stop city hall NOW!!!

Honoring our Veterans. . . . Really???

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT:

To HONOR someone means more than giving lipservice at some podium where one has the wherewithall to lie with impunity. To truly honor someone or some thing, means that we devote a certain measure of substance to back up the meaningless words and drivel that seem to roll off politician's lips these days like grease off fried chicken.

First of all, if you are a politician or president, and you say you HONOR our troops, then there are certainties that should accompany such a proposition:

#1 You should properly fund them. Ensure they have the proper vehicles, and enough vehicles. Ensure they have the proper protective equipment, and enough of it. Ensure that they have the best weapon systems, and enough ammunition, and the right ammunition. Soldiers are SCREAMING that the M-4 is not the right weapon system to use in Afghanistan. The 111th Congress should be ashamed for not providing any of the above in enough quantity or quality to provide security for American forces stationed abroad.

#2 You DO NOT set a timetable for withdrawl of forces and then broadcast to the enemy when that withdrawl will occur. This unnecessarily exposes American forces to future attacks when the enemy will know that we have drawn down our forces. The American president, Barak Hussein Obama, unnecessarily put American forces in harm's way when he announced such a timetable in Afghanistan.

#3 Cancelling defense projects in order to fund failed domestic entitlement programs that have never succeeded and will never succeed, is not how to HONOR our troops in the field. American fighting forces need the 155 Howitzer that was cancelled in Oklahoma, the F-22 Raptor that was cancelled, and the new individual weapon system that should have been fielded at the beginning of the 111th Congress that is STILL not yet in the field.

#4 American fighting forces are struggling under IMPOSSIBLE Rules of Engagement (ROE). Did we not learn anything from Vietnam? When Gen. Westmoreland initiated "Don't fire unless you're fired upon," and our soldiers had to helplessly sit and watch while the NVA set up ambushes that would kill American and South Vietnamese forces . . . Today, the same thing is happening in Afghanistan. American soldiers watch while the enemy sets up their rockets, reinforces their fighting positions, powerless to stop them UNTIL they begin firing at them. This American president is directly responsible and I hold him liable for every American soldier's death that was preventable.

#5 American veterans deserve to see their commander in chief at Arlington on Veteran's Day, placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This sends the message to every single living American veteran that this government remembers their sacrifice and honors their commitment to God and Country. No president should ever abdicate that responsibility.

#6 Coddling the very terrorists that our soldiers are fighting against by naming the chief ADVOCATE for terrorists as the nation's top law enforcement officer, the attorney general, is a slap in the face of everyone fighting terrorism. Eric Holder should NEVER have been appointed attorney general as he would have to recuse himself from every single terrorist case at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

#7 By appointomg Eric Shinseki, one of the most hated American generals and Army chiefs of staff under Bill Clinton. who adopted the ludicrous phrase "An Army of One," which flies in the face of everything every soldier was ever taught. . . to the post of Secretary of Veterans Affairs, clearly shows your disdain for the American veteran.

#8 By nominating Elana Kagan to the Supreme Court, who single-handedly got the ROTC kicked off the campus at Harvard, again indicates your hatred for the American military.

So, . . . to SAY you honor American veterans and our troops in the field, when your ACTIONS indicate the exact opposite is meaningless drivel. You, sir, should have stayed in bed.

2012 In Perspective

In examining the map of states in play for national and state elections in 2012, one thing becomes readily apparent, and that is that all of the 'big' states are out of play. For example, the large states where Democrats could, predictably, pick up large numbers of Congressional seats are all out of play. The largest Democratically-held states that are out of play are California, New York, and Florida. These were all decided during the 2010 elections. What that means for Republicans is the possibility of picking up even more Congressional and Senatorial seats in 2012 than they did in 2010. If you look at the map closely, the states that are 'in play' are the heartland states . . . the states that Republicans typically win. What this means is that Democrats will, in all likelyhood, NOT pick up any more states, and Republicans, through re-districting following the 2010 Census, could pick up many more.

The bottom line is this: Republicans had better not blow it in the next two years. There will be every attempt by the Democrats to discredit and malign the Republican national platform. There will be the usual 'scare tactics' that Republicans are going to do away with Medicare, Social Security and food stamps. However, the one thing that Republicans MUST do between now and 2012 is to stay focused.

The people of the United States are demanding action. They need to see an up-or-down vote to repeal Obamacare within 60 days of January 20th. They need to see efforts to defund the most massive spending bill in American history. They need to see job-creation bills and public works projects that do more than just give lip service for 'shovel-ready' jobs.

What America needs to see is a Congress that WORKS. Subpoenas need to be immediately issued to investigate the fraud taking place in electioneering, to include charges brought against George Soros. The conviction of Bernard Kerik needs to be investigated, among others and the kickback that Judge Stephen Robinson accepted in the wake of that trial.

Barney Frank's connection to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae should be examined, and there should be concerted efforts to purge the graft and corruption that have been the hallmarks of the Obama administration.

And, more than anything else, the American people need to know that Congress is REPRESENTING THEM, and not thumbing their collective noses at 'We the People.'

We, the people, have spoken during this election. Unless Washington listens, we will speak again, loudly, in 2012.

Arrogance of the U.S. Supreme Court

Monday, October 4, 2010.

The United States Supreme Court today ruled that two veteran service organizations lacked 'standing' to represent veterans in a case before the Supreme Court alleging that the VA was taking too long (sometimes up to 5 years) to process a veteran's claim, including the appeal (which is almost always necessary).
In defending one of the most inefficient organizations in the history of the United States, the Supreme Court, has once again, asserted its arrogance against all those who have given their all defending this country . . . and the Court's liberty to make such decisions.
No wonder the suicide rate is so high among this group of veterans! I completely understand a veteran's desire to no longer be a burden upon his family and a liability to his friends. And the VA is exacerbating this problem by siding with the very culprits whose inefficiency and uncaring attitude should be cause for a major Congressional investigation.
I recently visited a VA claim center in Muskogee, Oklahoma. I spoke with an anonymous worker who told me that one lady spent all morning polishing her fingernails, drinking coffee, and talking with family members on the phone. Veteran's issues were almost non-existent, and claims workers visited about the OU and OSU football games, the upcoming deer hunting season, and how each of them needed a vacation!
The Supreme Court stated that these service organizations lacked 'standing.' However, many, if not most, of these veterans have signed official Powers of Attorney, granting to these service organizations the authority to act on their behalf.
By this precedent, mental patients, alzheimers patients, and others requiring a care provider will no longer have adequate representation, because the Supreme Court will no longer grant them 'standing.' If an official Power of Attorney is no longer recognized by the Supreme Court, there could be many negative ramifications in other legal professions.
Shame on the VA. . . and shame on the U.S. Supreme Court. You no longer represent those who gave their lives for your freedom to act in such a disgusting manner. . . you represent the powerful special interest groups who lobby for federal workers. Say goodbye to civil rights for veterans and hello to an ugly, ugly bench.

The "Love Boat"


Almost 20 years ago, The United States Government leased a ship from the Carnival Cruise Lines named the "Cunard Princess." She was a small vessel as far as cruise ships go, only 16,000 tons (modern cruise ships run between 70,000 - 115,000 tons), but she was a stately vessel. She was rich with quality and had the most beautiful lines I've ever seen in a cruise ship. . . not a boxy, unweildy vessel like the cruise ships today (that resemble floating high-rise hotels). . . she was a real ship with majestic lines.

The purpose of this government lease was so that troops serving in the Gulf War could have a place in the Middle East where they could go for the purposes of R & R (Rest and Recuperation). Many a soldier, sailor, airman, and marine, spent their R&R from the Gulf War aboard this stately vessel.

I was appalled recently when the U.S. Government allowed the Carnival Cruise Lines to sell the Cunard Princess to an Italian company, who renamed her as the "Rhapsody."

I know. . . call me a romantic. . . but for me, escaping the burning sands of Saudi Arabia, if even for a few days, and enjoying the fine cuisine and cool cabins of the Cunard Princess were just. . . well. . . incredible.

Thousands of military personnel were well served by this wonderful old ship. As I pause to reflect on the horrors of war and what our military personnel are going through today in Afghanistan and Iraq, I must ask the question, could she not serve this purpose again???

I will not soon forget the peace and tranquility my cabin aboard the Cunard Princess afforded me. . . if even for just a few short days. . . or how important those days were to my mental well-being. . . . I will miss you, old ship.

Nullification of Voter Intent

I am saddened that we have reached the point in this country when voters no longer matter. When the Electoral College decides the presidency, and gerrymandering occurs that actually selects who the 'electors' are. When one federal judge can decide to throw out a state referendum in which the electorate of that state have, in a vast majority opinion, stated their views.

We have actually reached a period of 'minority rule' in which the courts, at the urging of the ACLU, trial lawyers, labor unions, and other liberal organizations can opine that the voters simply don't matter.

Congress has been effectively neutered by 'executive orders' and actions through administrative organizations like the SEC, DOJ, DOL, EPA, et al., ad nauseum. . . . and are effectively legislating from the White House. And, to make matters worse, what executive orders isn't covering, the Supreme Court is 'legislating from the bench' to cover!

Meanwhile, Congress, which has oversight authority over administrative offices, are abdicating their authority resulting in fiascos like the Gulf Oil Spill Disaster where nobody knew who was in charge or where their orders were coming from!

Congressmen and Senators have thumbed their collective noses at the American voter and in legislative action after legislative action, rendered decisions that every single poll in America is clear upon . . . that the American people do not favor.

I cannot say what the result of all this collective indifference will result in, but I can say this. When those elected by the people to 'represent them' fail in their duties to act as emissaries of those they are subordinate to, they, themselves, undermine the very system to which they were appointed or elected to serve, and render their own positions within such a system as meaningless.

Malicious and deliberate indifference shown in this past year by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will not, and should not, go unpunished. The media may have a short collective memory, but the voters. . . . those slighted and maligned by these miscreants. . . . will not soon forget the refuse bin into which they have been cast by this lot.

November cannot come too quickly for me. And, my prayer is that a resounding cry will emanate from deep within the very souls of the downtrodden voter 'let's take back what is rightfully ours. . . the government of the United States of America.'

Bernie Kerik's Case Not Unique

Although Bernard Kerik's case represents a gross miscarriage of justice and a liberal witch-hunt, it is not the first time a judicial blunder of such magnitude has occurred.

Consider the case of Alvin York, better known as 'Sergeant York.' York was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor during World War I for bravery in action against the German Army in Europe. He was also awarded many other decorations for heroism, gallantry and intrepidity.

Following his return from the War, York traveled across the U.S. raising War Bonds for the U.S. Treasury Department and helping the war effort.

During World War II, York again advertized for the U.S. Treasury and raised War Bonds totalling millions of dollars.

After all he had done, you would think America would appreciate, not only his heroism and valor under fire, but lending his name and purpose to assist in the cause of freedom by raising millions of dollars for the U.S. Government in War Bonds. This was not the case.

In 1951, possibly because of York's outspoken conservatism, a liberal-controlled House and Senate went after York. The IRS found York guilty of tax evasion for a movie that had been made about York's life, even though he had not received the proceeds, but had donated them to the building of a school.

Had it not been for a pardon from President John F. Kennedy, York would probably have served time in prison!

How quickly we forget our nation's heroes and allow them to become political scapegoats! Shame on you America! It wasn't the preacher, or the politician, or even the judge, who granted us liberty, but the soldier on the battlefield won our liberty with his blood, sweat, toil, and tears. We owe him respect and consideration.

Bernard Kerik is such a hero. He served his country in the U.S. Army in Korea and Germany during the Cold War. Then, he served as a law enforcement officer, rising through the ranks of the NYPD to become the 40th Police Commissioner. He then served President Bush in Iraq as the first Minister of the Interior.

Then, like Sergeant York, a liberal witch hunt turned into an IRS collaboration for tax evasion and for misusing city contractors, and now Bernie is serving 4 years in prison!!!

How quickly they forget America's heroes!

I call on all decent-minded citizens to demand Bernard Kerik's release and full exoneration and to be pardoned by the President like Sergeant York was pardoned. If we allow this travesty of justice to befall one of our heroes. . . It may be you that is next!

Full Speed Ahead

During the Battle of Mobile Bay, I believe, it was David Farragut who said "Damn the torpedoes,. . . full speed ahead!" Athough successful, many military analysts have suggested this course of action was neither wise nor prudent, and Farragut's victory was more chance than skill.

Rear Admiral David Farragut rashly ordered his ship to charge, full speed, through a minefield that had already claimed one of the Union's Ironclads. Such decisions, most often, do not end well. Captain Edward Smith found that out on the maiden voyage of the Titanic when ordering "full speed ahead" even after ice had been spotted in the water.

At the helm of our 'ship of state' today is a brash and reckless skipper named Barak Hussein Obama, who is charging our nation into a minefield, seemingly oblivious to the pain and suffering that will undoubtedly result from his ill-advised actions.

Here are just a few of his brash decisions: (1) ordering the firing of the CEO of a private corporation in deference to liberal ideologies rather than Constitutional mandates (2) offering a lucrative presidential appointment to Joe Sestak in order to keep him from filling Obama's old senate seat (3) taking advice from Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder about Arizona's law that they hadn't even read (4) kicking Israel's prime minister out of the White House in breach of long-standing and important protocols (5) in Chavez-like fashion, federalizing the entire healthcare system in collusion with a corrupt congress even after every poll showed that 75% of Americans were against it (6) granting to the EPA powers never intended by congress and bypassing senate confirmation of, what should have been, legislative bills (7) appointing to the U.S. Supreme Court a person who has never served as a judge -- even a single day! (8) reducing by one-third the number of press conferences refusing to take questions; and in Politburo/Kremlin fashion, setting in place a propaganda machine to vet Elena Kagan, bypassing the entire White House press corps (9) appointing unqualified Czars to posts and granting them powers never intended by congress with no senate confirmation (10) appointing federal judges simply because they are biased, rather than appointing justices on the basis of not having a bias. (11) failing to protect the citizens of the United States by gutting the entire intelligence community and castrating all of our agents and spies with threats of lawsuits (12) appointing as attorney general of the United States, a person who holds 'attorney-client privilege' with over 18 known terrorists as their former defense attorney from Guantanamo Bay.

These, my friends, are just the tip of the iceberg. Feel free to post, as you see fit, other failings of the present administration. If George W. Bush had done ANY of the above, the left would be LIVID! They would be 'shouting it from the rooftops!' We simply cannot afford to be silent any longer. Speak out against the tyranny and injustice of the Obama Regime. . . or forever be silenced and cowed into submission by this socialist government.

Bernard B. Kerik

My friend, Bernard B. Kerik, posted this on his blog today.
Please keep Bernie and his family in your prayers.
Justice will someday be served and history will record that a good man has, this day, been served a grave and evil injustice.

Holder's Conflict of Interest

Eric Holder's prestigious law firm, Covington and Burling, of Washington, D.C., in January, 2009 was representing 17 Yemeni terrorists being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He also represented several Pakistanis in their habeas corpus appeals to the Supreme Court. As their attorney and senior partner in Covington and Burling, Holder was privy to information and had 'attorney-client' privilege with at least 19 terrorists.

My question is simply this: How can Eric Holder now be capable, as America's prosecutor in the role of Attorney General of the United States, to prosecute these 19 terrorists, with whom he has intimate knowledge and has shared attorney-client privilege?

Not only should Eric Holder recuse himself in all cases involving terrorists, but he should immediately step down as Attorney General. The perception is that his loyalties lie elsewhere as Michelle Malkin adeptly points out in her article.

This is Andrew Kreig's blog.
It is an outstanding blog! I invite everyone to follow it!

Andrew Kreig's Radio Show 5-13-10

In this show with Technology Lawyer Radio Network founder Scott Draughon and Justice Integrity Project Director, Andrew Kreig.

This is an hour-long segment dedicated to the unfairness of the court case against former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, a former Minister of the Interior to Iraq following the U.S. led invasion, a decorated soldier, a decorated police officer, a father of four children, a devoted husband, and a man of integrity.

Travesty of Justice regarding Bernard Kerik

Bernard Kerik served his country as a military police officer in the United States Army. He then served as a police officer with the NYPD. He was appointed as Commissioner of Corrections by Mayor Giuliani, and then served as Police Commissioner under Mayor Giuliani. He was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as Minister of Interior to Iraq following the U.S.-led invasion. He is a highly decorated soldier, highly decorated police officer and has been in law enforcement for over 35 years.

Mr. Kerik is now going to prison for allowing contractors to work on his house who also had contracts with the city? Sound ludicrous? It did to me as well.

His case demonstrates how criminal justice can run amok when led by judges who have no regard for the Constitution and prosecutors who have no respect for the rule of law.

First of all, I believe that Mr. Kerik was treated unfairly by the courts, and in particular, by Justice Stephen Robinson. Here are a few reasons I believe this happened to Mr. Kerik.
(1) Vital exculpatory evidence was withheld from Mr. Kerik's attorney during discovery that would, almost certainly, have freed Mr. Kerik.
(2) Even though federal court and the New York court represents two distinctly different jurisdictions, When Mr. Kerik was punished in the New York court and paid a fine, his instant offense should have been declared duly adjudicated. I do not believe you will find very many instances where individuals were punished in a state court and then tried again in a federal court for the same offense, after having been PUNISHED already by a lower court. Even though this does not constitute 'double jeopardy' because of the separate jurisdictions, it is still highly irregular and merits serious scrutiny by a judicial oversight committee perhaps a Senate inquiry.
(3) It is my believe that Mr. Kerik was punished in return for a future judicial appointment, possibly even to the U.S. Supreme Court, for Justice Robinson. While this is purely subjective, at this point, if evidence emerges that Justice Robinson entered into a verbal agreement to this end, it would be an embarrassing case of judicial misconduct as well as malfeasance of character, a disbarring offense, for Justice Robinson.
(4) Federal courts urge state courts to follow federal sentencing guidelines. When a justice exceeds a recommended sentence by 20% he/she is required to write an explanation as to why an excessive sentence was warranted. In Mr. Kerik's case, Justice Robinson exceeded the federal sentencing guidelines by 18 months, from 30 months to 48 months. Why was such a sentence warranted in what should have amounted to a civil case in the first instance, and in the second instance HAD ALREADY BEEN ADJUDICATED IN A STATE COURT??? Not only did Justice Robinson exceed the federal sentencing guidelines, but his sentence was 3 times greater than the 20%, or, a full 60% above the recommended federal sentencing guidelines! I might understand it if this were a violent crime or if Mr. Kerik had prior felonies, but such was not the case here. Mr. Kerik's only previous court action was the instant offense. The case had already been adjudicated by a lower court, and therefore, should not have been entered into the sentencing matrix by Justice Robinson as an extenuating factor. Therefore, Justice Robinson has no justifiable basis from which to have ordered such a sentence. This action alone should merit the ordering of a new sentencing hearing upon appeal.
(5) Justice Robinson had already uttered inflammatory and disparaging remarks regarding Mr. Kerik PRIOR to seating himself as the judge in Mr. Kerik's trial. Justice Robinson should have recognized his own personal bias and recused himself from this case since he had already demonstrated his inability to act objectively. Instead, he allowed his own personal feelings to cloud his judgment, and justice ran amok, before, during, and after Mr. Kerik's trial. (a) Before, during discovery (b) during, by directing that witnesses having exculpatory testimony be prevented from testifying on Mr. Kerik's behalf, and (c) after, at sentencing, at which time Justice Robinson exceeded the Federal Sentencing Guidelines by 60%, from 30 to 48 months.
(6) Justice Robinson further demonstrated his bias by seeking to have Mr. Kerik's attorney's REMOVED FROM THE CASE during the most critical point of the trial, at the precise point when Mr. Kerik needed his counsel the most! Justice Robinson's actions at this point are unconstitutional as well as unethical.
(7) Finally, the federal courts may not have standing, as no crime occurred in Washington, D.C. All of Mr. Kerik's admissions of guilt, which were all to misdemeanors at the time of his admissions of guilt, occurred in the state of New York.

In all of my years studying the American criminal justice system, I have never witnessed a more blatant disregard for the rule of law or the United States Constitution. While the court's actions in Mr. Kerik's case may have been legal, they were certainly unethical, highly irregular, and clearly demonstrative of personal bias on the part of the judge in the case. Had this happened to a young black male, Harvard law graduate, there is no doubt there would be cries of discrimination (and rightly so), on the part of every civil liberties group in America. However, because the case in point involves a white male conservative Republican, every civil liberties group in America has turned their collective backs on Mr. Kerik,. . . and that is just shameful. . . absolutely shameful!!!

This court has disgraced the judicial branch of government and cast a dark pall over people who are not a members of some minority group from ever enjoying the same level of civil liberties as their minority citizen counterparts. It is appalling to me, especially, that it was allowed to happen to a highly decorated soldier in the United States Army, a highly decorated police officer with numerous citations for valor and courage under fire, an American ambassador who served these United States in a foreign country in a hostile fire area during a time of extreme crisis, and finally, as an American citizen and father of four children and a respected member of his community. What a travesty of justice!!! And over what? A contractor that may or may not have received special treatment by a city government??? You've GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!

I'm outraged that this grave injustice is being allowed to go unchecked. It shakes my confidence in the American criminal justice system and causes me to issue a warning to rogue, activist judges in the future who are simply trying to make a name for themselves. When this government, or any government, fails in its primary responsibility of protecting its citizens and ensuring that every citizen accused of a crime enjoys the right to a fair and speedy trial; then the citizens of this country will rise up and take the law into their own hands. I do not wish for this country to return to the days of vigilante justice, but in light of such blatant judicial misconduct. . . it just might.

Hypocricy of Health Care Bill

Obama's Health Care Bill has nothing to do with Health Care. It is about re-distribution of wealth in America. It is about advancing socialistic and communistic ideals as put forth by Obama's mentor, Saul Alinsky, and it is about advancing and furthering abortion on demand and the provision of abortion services. Fifty-one million babies have been slaughtered since Roe v. Wade, which, by the way, passed by a simple 5-4 vote in the Supreme Court. Even the Liberal Supreme Court at the time was split over the issue.

Abortion is an abomination. The same people who favor abortion would send a person to prison for five years for "disturbing" an eagle's nest. What is an eagle's nest but an "unborn eagle." They care more about unborn animals and even fish, than they care about an unborn human life.

The blatant hypocricy of these people is beyond words. Their eyes are blinded to simple truths and their thinking is twisted by popular culture. They are more concerned about impressing their Hollywood friends than about doing what is morally and ethically right.

It is my sincere hope that America wakes up before it is too late. We have turned away from God, upon whose principles this country was founded, and turned to athiestic and perverse ideas whose roots are in Pagan and Idol worship of ancient history.

This Health Care Bill is an attempt to legalize robbery. It is taking away (stealing) from the working Americans to give to the no-good, deadbeat dads out there who would squander any amount given to them.

Please wake up, America. . . before it is too late.

Newsmax - Roberts: Scene at State of Union 'Very Troubling'

For a sitting president to make a scene in the way that Obama did was unprofessional at best, and at worst, jeapordized the delicate checks and balances that exist between the executive branch and the judicial branch of government. The blatant double-standard that exists could never be more evident than when Joe Wilson shouted "liar" and was immediately denounced, demonized, vilified, and trashed by the liberal media and by nearly ALL of the talking heads in Washington. Then, Obama turns around and does WORSE by not only calling the Supreme Court names, but actually questioning their integrity. . . and nothing is said in the media!!! Media bias has gone completely off the cliff in favor of the liberal viewpoint. While I have not always agreed with Supreme Court decisions, there is a civil way to approach that disagreement. What Obama did . . . if it had been done in 1810 or 1910 instead of 2010. . . would probably have resulted in a fistfight, or a duel. There is a right way and a wrong way in a public discourse, especially during a "State of the Union Address," to disagree and still be civil. Obama shredded civility and caused irrepairable bad feelings between the two branches of government. This will not be corrected during this administration unless and until Obama makes a public apology. But, that will never happen. He's too busy apologizing for all the GOOD this nation did to know the difference. And so, for the forseeable future, don't expect the United States Supreme Court to EVER attend another of Obama's "state of the union" addresses. . . . won't happen. . . and I can't blame them. I wouldn't sit there and take that kind of abuse either. There is something called "fighting speech" that entitles, at least in the mind of a jury in a court of law, taking action against the perpetrator of such speech. Obama may have crossed that line.



Newsmax - Roberts: Scene at State of Union 'Very Troubling'

Two-faced

In order to garner public support for his health care initiative, President Obama is vilifying the insurance industry in the media. And yet, while is demonizing them publicly, insurance companies stand to gain $366 billion under the table and will benefit enormously from Obama's health care plan. This epitomizes the kind of blatant hypocricy that is typical of this administration. They vilified corporate CEO bonuses, but then turned around and awarded millions to AIG, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac executives in bonuses AFTER they received a government bailout from the financial crisis that these same CEOs and executives probably caused! Obama says one thing publicly, then does another (sometimes the opposite) privately. He stated publicly that his health care bill would NOT pay for abortions with taxpayer dollars, then turned around and told the folks at Planned Parenthood that his plan would GUARANTEE public funding for abortions. With this administration, you don't have to wonder where they stand. Just look at what they say publicly, then expect them to do something under the table to undermine the law in order to advance their own socialist agenda.

Why is it that this group of scientists "demanded" proof of everyone except themselves???

Newsmax - Obama Plans to Eliminate ‘Thousands’ of U.S. Nuclear Warheads

This administration is doing its best to leave us utterly defenseless. Just as other nations are ramping up their own nuclear capabilities, Obama is eliminating ours. Couldn't have worked any better if it had been an enemy's strategy.

Obama allegedly called this summit to "listen" to the other side. . . then did all the talking! Not quite fair or balanced.

Charlie Rangel ruling puts Nancy Pelosi in a jam - John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com

Pelosi's refusal to take Charles Rangel off the powerful Ways and Means Committee is astonishing! He has been found guilty by a House Ethics Committee of misconduct, accepting bribes, failure to report income, and a number of other serious charges. You must remember that these are the same Democrats who just put former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik in prison for much less that what Rangel did! The double-standard of Democrats in positions of power is appaling. It appears that laws only apply to Republicans. We really need to vote these people out of office as quickly as possible!

Train Derailment

Once the train has left the tracks, it ceases to be a transportation vehicle. Everything that the train does from the moment it leaves the tracks until it finally comes to rest is destructive. Nothing productive can come from a train wreck. What is usually left in the wake of such an event is wreckage, debris, dead bodies, torn up track, and damage to the infrastructure itself, usually a bridge, buildings, roads, etc.

The problem that we have in America is that the train left the tracks several years ago. There are those in our society who feel that simply because the locomotive is still sliding forward everything is OK, even though cars are shattering off, wrecking everything in their path. There is a substantive difference between the condition of the two states of affairs. The path we are currently on is destructive.

Everything the current administration is doing is counter-productive. The long-term effects of the current fiscal policies are damaging to the country. Raising the debt ceiling trillions of dollars, increasing our national debt exponentially, and devaluing the dollar will have serious negative unintended consequences. Printing more dollars to pay debt simply increases inflation and the long-term effects will be more devastating than simply not printing the dollars or paying the debt.

In nearly every area, America is in decline. Morally, politically, ethically, fiscally, responsibly. . . in fact, I stuggle to find an area where we have increased.

America's train is off the tracks and careening out of control. It may continue to skid along for another mile or so, but eventually it will come to rest and everything will grind to a halt. Irresponsible governance cannot continue on this course for long. My only hope is that there is some infrastructure left to rebuild upon after the wrecking crew presently in DC have gone.

I'm reminded of an old TV commercial where a car leaves the roadway at a high rate of speed, and is flying off a cliff. One of the two occupants of the vehicle turns to the other and says "That can't be good."

I suppose the use of the 51-vote "Nuclear Option" is only an "Arrogant Power Grab against the Founder's Intent" if the Republicans use it. As long as Democrats use it, it seems to be OK.

This may be the first of many such instances in light of the banking industry's refusal to work with distressed borrowers. It is frustrating that bankers took $59 billion in bailouts but won't spare a dime for their customers.

GM CEO Whitacre receives $9M pay package - Yahoo! Finance

There is simply NO WAY to blame this on anyone else. The Government OWNS GM. To pay an executive $9 million plus golden parachute, stock options, lucrative benefits package, is beyond hypocritical after all this administration said about such salaries.

Partisanship

President Obama is the most partisan president in American history. Polls show that Obama's agendas have been more divisive than any presidential administration's agendas, polarizing America even more split into two camps along party lines. His latest ploy to bring cameras to the White House and invite the minority party to "put aside their partisan differences" is nothing but a ploy to lure Republicans into a trap where the entire deck is stacked against them in order to wangle concessions out of them on health care under duress. He has no intentions of engaging in a non-partisan debate or listening to the minority side of the health care issue. If he had, cameras would have been in Congress, not at the White House, on a neutral playing field, instead of Obama's home turf, and it would have been during legislative session where real votes could have occurred instead of some kind of "staged" White House meeting where nothing is on the table. This is nothing more than grandstanding on the part of the President and an attempt to make the minority party look bad.

Kirk Lippold

Kirk Lippold, Retired Navy Captain and skipper of the USS Cole when it was bombed in Yemen in 2000, may turn to politics. Sources say that Lippold may run for the seat currently help by Harry Reid in Nevada. If Lippold runs, he will have my support. I speak for retired military everywhere when I say that we've had enough John Murthas and John Kerrys who did nothing but bash and denigrate our military while they were up there. It's time for a new kind of leadership. Captain Lippold can give us that. I hope he runs.
