‘On Federalism and Freedom’- Patriot Papers No. 3

©2010 K.J. Kaufman

The historical tension in our Nation between freedom  and a strong central government forms the basis for the Patriot Papers No. 3.

Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.

If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be….If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed. –Thomas Jefferson “Letters to John Adams and Col. Charles Clancy”

The power of an educated citizenry in their respective states was central to assuring the role of the people as equal to or greater than the servant federal government.  And this tension would be ultimately manifested in the question  of whether or not to develop a central bank. The resumption of this appropriate balance in the constitution lies in the morality and principles of leadership. How do we ascertain those characteristics today?

    Dear Dr Kate-this is an FYI the hillbuzz guys are under attack, which may trace back to DNC-White House. Just trying to spread the word.
    Someone told us to be very careful with digging too deep into this, because if our hunch is right and this does lead back to the DNC and Organizing for America themselves, there are many people who will do us physical harm to keep us from exposing them.
    Well, they’ve made the mistake of targeting single, gay guys with no children, no one depending on us for anything, and no real reason to sit back and let them attack us unchallenged. We live in Chicago. We’ve been mugged. We’ve been physically assaulted before. We’ve been dealing with nonstop harassment from Obama supporters for over two years now — all in service to their “Lightbringer” of Hope and Change, whose message can only, it seems, be spread through violence and thuggery.
    If their “Lightbringer” really was so wonderful, and what he was selling truly was so magical, then why do they need to threaten, attack, and try to intimidate people the way they do?
    Listen, we grew up gay in the Midwest, where we were abused, threatened, maligned, harassed, and blackmailed before…by people much more creative than the Hope and Change Gang…people who covered their tracks better. What these Obama-supporting thugs don’t realize is that when you launch Alinsky attacks against people who have been subjected to Alinksy attacks their whole lives, like us, we aren’t going to just turn tail and run.

      They are being targeted. Wrong target though. These guys do not have a family to worry about. People think Hillbuzz is Republican.

    Clarice Feldman wrote an article on American Thinker
    “DOJ hires bloggers as propagandists and sock puppets”.
    The Obama team hired bloggers during the election and it got very ugly.

    Looks promising:


    US Code, Title 44, Chp 22: “Presidential Records”

    The legal info below shall end the faux “Presidency”, and shall result in: Re-Election 2010

    As provided to you all below, the various hammering statutory laws of the United States Code “shall..” be plenty enough to expose all of the pertinent records for Mr. Obama’s lack-of-citizenship, lack-of-natural-born-status, and, accordingly, his utter lack of valid eligibility for the Presidency. No more caselaw, legal doctrine, or anything else that provides the judges any sort of “discretion”… These are the commanding statutes of the United States, and Obama “shall” vacate the office.

    The internet is abuzz this weekend with news that newspapers around the country have published (obviously fake and obviously orchestrated) letters supporting Obama purportedly written by a woman named “Ellie Light” (aka meechelle O? )who claims in each case to reside in the area where each newspaper is in circulation. This looks like a DoJ version of the astroturf. DoJ hires bloggers as propagandists and sock puppets

      “Mr. John McCain, Republican, *is* the President, temporarily, until the Re-Election that must be done, promptly”.

      How could John McCain act as President temporarily? John McCain isn’t a ‘natural born Citizen’, as required by Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of The Constitution, because John McCain was born in Colon Hospital in The Republic of Panama. The obots did everything they could, to ensure that McCain was nominated by the GOP, so that the ineligible McCain could provide ‘cover’ for the ineligible Obama.

    Orly’s site has a big fat virus trojan on it…I have a heavy firewall so I was stopped at the gate. Warning me not to enter. HEUR Trojan virus.
    They are cyber bullying whenever they are losing and it’s likely coming from the top and not obots.

    If any of you have not wondered why NONE of the MainStreamMedia have even offered a peep about Obama’s lack of Constitutional eligibility, here’s a very likely explanation (the thread begins “I Believe …”):


    And if you’ve not heard any of the reasons he’s NOT eligible, check other blog entries on that site and, for fun (though they start slowly), check these links for understandable information:

    Another excellent source of information on the ‘natural born Citizen’ issue is Ken Dunbar’s ‘Liberty Pole’.

    QL—I got the same warning yesterday on Orly’s site,but today it seemed clear. The goon squads are busily at work. Which reminds me, what happened to Misstickly? Is she still at work on the Hawaiian royalty approach?? That was of interest to me. I have a theory that the Soviets picked him up in Hawaii as a child and brought him along as the perfect Manchurian Candate—who knows??

    • 13 Quantum Leap January 25, 2010 at 10:56 pm

      From what I gather miss tickley’s husband got hurt (how? I can only guess-ya know what I mean) and she had to make choices and quit the blog. prolly was threatened?

        • 15 Joe The Blogger January 26, 2010 at 8:34 am

          Miss Tickly (TerriK) explained this in a post on FreeRepublic. Her husband had a medical problem that led to him losing his sight (hopefully only temporarily). In this family emergency TerriK chose to shut down her website and devote all of her efforts to looking after her family.

    Uh oh.

    this was files last year:

    560 F.3d 1078
    UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,
    Carlos Jesus MARGUET-PILLADO, Defendant-Appellant.
    No. 08-50130.

    United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
    Argued and Submitted March 3, 2009.
    Filed March 27, 2009.

    It is a commonplace that the traditional ways of transmitting and acquiring citizenship at birth are jus soli and jus sanguinis. In this country, the former is provided for by the Constitution,2 and the latter is provided for by the enactments of Congress.3

    2. U.S. Const. amend. XIV § 1.
    3. See Miller v. Albright, 523 U.S. 420, 424, 118 S.Ct. 1428, 1432, 140 L.Ed.2d 575 (1998).
