don't lecture me on the constitution, dude.

“Our state constitution is clear: The voters of this state overwhelmingly decided to extend their rights to recall any elected official who is elected and serving the people of this state on all levels of government” ~Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose (R-Sussex)

Tea Party activists in New Jersey who filed a notice with the NJ Secretary of State to recall Senator Bob Menendez under provisions of the NJ and U.S. Constitutions were handed a victory on March 16th when a state appeals court ruled that the recall effort could move forward.  The court determined that the SOS had to accept the petition from a citizens group to recall the Senator, which she had previously refused to do.  The ruling is stayed for 45 days giving Menendez a chance to appeal to the State Supreme Court.

From Politico:

RoseAnn Salanitri, the founder of the Sussex County Tea Party and the leader of the Committee to Recall U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, called the court decision a victory for the recall campaign.  “The fight is just beginning to keep our representatives accountable,” Salanitri told POLITICO Tuesday morning. “No way are we lying down and playing dead.”

Is it Constitutional?

Menendez and the State are in the uncomfortable position of stating that their own constitutions are unconstitutional.  The Court ruled that the New Jersey constitution unequivocally permits a recall of elected officials at any level, and further, that this right is protected in the U.S. Constitution.

The NJ democrat party responds non-sensically:

“These people are on a crusade to undermine the U.S. Constitution and to discredit human evolution.”


American Thinker has an excellent article on this case and the reasons it believes this decision will be upheld.  It is the concept of popular sovereignty that exists in America that gives the people ultimate authority over who represents them. In fact the right of recall was alive and well in the states before the U.S. Constitution was written.

When the 17th Amendment was ratified and went into effect to make senators elected by the people rather than appointed by the state legislatures, it provided additional reasons to uphold recall where provided. This Amendment repeated, word for word, the language of the basic Constitution that the state voters would be those for “the most numerous branch of the state legislature.” It left to the states the definition of who could vote and how the elections would be conducted.

This interpretation of the Seventeenth Amendment, coupled with a State Constitutional provision that provides for recall and its procedures, could be a way to occupy our senators’ time so that they can’t do any more damage than they already have to.

It also provides a way back to constitutional governance now rather than waiting for the repeal of the 17th amendment. The people are engaged, the state legislatures and governments are responsive, and the senators start jumping when we tell them to, on our terms.

Remember, when undertaking a siege, all roads leading to the power sources must be covered, and the anti-Americans balled up in defending themselves.

Tied up in knots, Senators?

    Time to check your state’s constitution…there is so much we can do on the state level.

    Speaking of recall, hearing this as a little teeny child, I can remember feeling a sadness that my little self could not yet comprehend. It still tugs at my heart strings today. I guess it is what melancholy feels like.

    Where have all our public servants gone?

    Hope everyone has a beautiful and peaceful weekend.

    Papoose, lovely song, but you know they’re (and in the case of Mary Travers, were) communist sympathizers.

    Read Janis Ian’s autobiography. She referenced several folk icons, and was a literal red diaper baby who attended a communist camp for many years and was “marinated” in communist doctrine.

    Yes, they’re everywhere!

    Hi RW, Yes, I do know that. I am turning the tables on them. Janis Ian lived in the next neighborhood when she wrote her debut album. I was associated with many communes back in the day. I left home at an early age — I often wonder what the hell was I thinking? Clear as a bell, I belived in social justice and devoted much time to working for the oppressed. The only thing is this: I always loved my Country and felt that respect an acceptance was a good thing. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe that one day my generation would be the oppressed.

    We live and we learn, sadly.

    We were hijacked.

    We were lied to.

    I protest! No to communism and the eradication of our founding.

    Off to the Poconos!

    When I was a teenage (long ago) my mother must have had a crystal ball — she knew Peter, Paul, and Mary were part of the communist move along with Joan Beaz, and others.

    I used to ask my mother why my dad was always gone to sea all of the time, and her answer was always the same, “to keep America free and becoming communistic.” This was her answer because she knew what the future would be coming from parents who immigrated through Ellis Island from Germany. I can remember never really knowing my dad after his 32 yrs of service and 3 wars. Those years were hard to hoe compared to what the military families have today.

    Obama hates our military and everything it stands for and this is why he wants HIS OWN army, Bigger, more funded, stronger than ours.
    And where will he get these thugs–off the streets of Chicago-acorn, the black panthers? I wonder.

    The “… flowers …” song is beautiful, plaintive, and well-delivered.

    Having said that the folks delivering it would now bew singing “… the flowers are back and they’re growing again …” and praising the man who is our CIC (Chief IslamoCommunist) since ther were always Communists and hated American even then just as Barry-boy does now.

    If you want to find out how pervasive Communist influence was in this country even in the immediat post WWII era (the 50s -60s), read the book by W, Staunton Evans which is exceedingly well researched and thoroughly footnoed called “Blacklisted By History” which tells the story of Senator Joe McCarthy who even today is STILL demonized by the Communists and the MSM even though his digging out of the Communists in the US government was nearly entirely correct. They were – abd are – everywhere and now even the Big Dog is one!!

      A couple of thoughts…

      I find it interesting that this hit the MSM on Good Friday, a day when the market is closed.

      And the best indicator of all that there is something to this is how quickly and consistently the MSM came out blasting this as right wing extremism. Remember how the huge crowds in D.C. on 9/12 were all but ignored, and compare that to how this has exploded in all national and local news.

      I remain open minded, yet cautious.

    Quite an article to read from your link. I do have my own suspicions about 911. NOT saying that I am a truther, but there seems to be to much proof that the towers came down through controlled demolitions.

    The architects and engineers have gone before the Congress and Senate just a few weeks ago and are scheduled to meet again with proof that the 3 towers were demoed.

    Some have said that there were no terrorists on the planes and the planes were flown remote controlled which is possible since that’s how the drones over Afghanistan are flown.

    Scientifically I opt for the architects and engineers theory.

    Some have also said that Marvin Bush held the security contract until 9-10 and that he and his crew had worked in all 3 buildings for 2 weeks checking the security systems and had all 3 towers evacuated during those times, and also worked in all 3 the Saturday before 911 to double check whatever it was they did.

    When I think and see the videos time and time again, it is almost impossible to believe that Fl 93 in Pa even crashed at that sight for the mere fact there was no debris from the plane or belongings or bodies. The Pentagon showed no plane at all nor was there any destruction for the wings.

    I am sure this will be like JFK and WE THE PEOPLE may never know the truth except for scientific theory.
    Whatever or whoever was part of this was a synchronized plot against America to get us to where we are now through the use of terrorism and keep us controlled.

    Just my opinion, thanks for the link.

      I’m with the A&E report as well. I just ran across this without checking it… I am anxious to find their testimony before congress

    One final thought: If the individuals responsible for this blatant black-letter violation of the law do not face meaningful sanction for these acts, and neither does The Fed as an institution, can you fine folks over at The Executive, Judiciary and Legislative branches of our government please explain to us ordinary Americans why we should obey any of the laws of this land when you will not enforce the laws that already exist?

    This just goes to prove that this entire MANUFACTURED CRISIS, as Biden said would happen, was just that. Manufactured take down of our financial system during GWB end of term, to help Obama get himself elected. For Obama and co to have the time prior to his winning so he could force all of this down our throats and overwhelm each of us and all of his preaching with I will Save America! Look at us now – look at the time frame — look at the loss of jobs, homes, everything that comes within the financial system.

    Give them a taste of their own medicine and don’t let up. 😆
    Alinsky practiced what he preached. He said, “Tactics means doing what you can with what you have … tactics is the art of how to take and how to give.”

    He uses eyes, ears and nose for examples…

    “If you have a vast organization, parade it before the enemy, openly show your power.”

    “If your organization is small, do what Gideon did: conceal the members in the dark but raise a clamor that will make the listener believe that your organization numbers many more that it does.”

    “If your organization is too tiny even for noise, stink up the place.”

    Alinsky devised and proved thirteen tactical rules for use against opponents vastly superior in power and wealth.

    1. “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
    2. “Never go outside the experience of your people.
    3. “Wherever possible go outside of the experience of the enemy.
    4. “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.
    5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
    6. “A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.
    7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
    8. “Keep the pressure on.
    9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
    10. “Major premise for tactics is development of operations that will maintain constant pressure upon the opposition.
    11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.
    12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
    13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

    “The real action is in the enemy’s reaction. The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength. Tactics, like life, require that you move with the action.”

    Alinsky was hated and defamed by powerful enemies, proof that his tactics worked. His simple formula for success…

    “Agitate + Aggravate + Educate + Organize”

      I’ve been Alinskyized so often on blogs that when I get called a name, I know it means that I’ve pissed THEM off, and I don’t worry about it. They writhe when you ignore them. Leave them flapping in the wind with their immature ridicule. I just usually kick in another factoid…they don’t deal in actual debate, only censorship.

  14. 22 heather April 2, 2010 at 8:31 pm


    I searched the architects and engineers website for any information but there is nothing posted.

    I cannot understand why this government hides everything from the people of this country. We have the right to know everything that goes on daily inside, outside and in between the happenings. They have no right to hold anything back.

    This is all that I could find from a google search.

    What totally baffles me is that Ayers and wife never went to jail or even had a trial for the bombings they did and the admittance of doing it. Why is this?

    • 24 drkate April 2, 2010 at 10:11 pm

      Ayers had a trial, but it was thrown out on prosecutorial misconduct. hence his phrase “guilty as sin, free as a bird, America is a great country”

      Dohrn is suspected of doing the sanfrancisco bomb that killed a cop.

      It must really bother law enforcement that these two idiots have the highest visitation at the White House.

    Obama Aiding and Abetting National Suicide?

  17. 26 heather April 2, 2010 at 10:19 pm

    Oh yes I forgot he said that–and her deal. There has just been so much and so many players in this communist coup, sometimes its just hard to keep track of each.

    Yes they do, I too saw the visitors list. Maybe some eyes are watching and waiting for the right moves! Wouldn’t that be awesome.
