    THE LAWYER OBAMA, WHAT A JOKE

    [Ed. note on the Ed. note: this is from a former Chicago lawyer now practicing law in Tyler , TX ]

    [Ed. note: This is legit. I checked it out myself at https://www.iardc.org Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict and mean as hell. (Talk about irony!) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn.]

    Big surprise !!!

    Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and US President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During ‘State Of The Union ‘ Address.

    Consider this:

    1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

    A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

    2. Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993.

    3. So, we have the first black President and First Lady – who don’t actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

    Source: http://jdlong.wordpress.com/2009/05/15/pres-barack-obama-editor-of-the-Harvard-law-review-has-no-law-license/

    4. A senior lecturer is one thing. A fully ranked law professor is another. Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago .

    5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” in the law school-but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

    6. “He did not hold the title of professor of law,” said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Schoolof Law.

    Source: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/03/sweet_obama_did_hold_the_title.html ;

    7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the US Constitution the other night during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence . not the Constitution.

    8. The B-Cast posted the video: http://www.breitbart.tv/did-obama-confuse-the-constitution-with-the-declaration-of-independence/

    9. Free Republic: In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: “We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in our Constitution: the notion that we are all created equal..

    10. Um, wrong citing, wrong founding document there Champ, I mean Mr. President. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Libertyand the pursuit of Happiness.

    11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech???

    When you are a phony it’s hard to keep facts straight. The only ones that haven’t seen through this clown and the band of idiots that surrounds him are those that are fleecing this Country for all it’s worth. I hope and pray that common sense will prevail in the next election or this great Nation is finished!

      Jan:

      Right on the money – but those are hardly the only lies the guy has pout forth publicly as “truth”. He only does these things to further his own anti-American agenda rather than out of ignorance or honest error. Rather it is out of stupidity – the belief that he knows all and that whatever he says must be correct even though he’s made no study of American history as the following 2 public speeches show. Forget the “57 states” pronouncement as even 3rd graders knew that was wrong.

      And while reading these two public speeches, remember that ignorance is temporary but stupid is forever (and that the misattributed quotes in the new Oval Office rug are merely another example of history rewritten by Obama).

      ====================================

      1) A noteworthy example was his presentation on November 16, 2009 in the Shanghai Townhall speech to future Chinese leaders where he said:

      “In 1784, our founding father, George Washington, commissioned the Empress of China, a ship that set sail for these shores so that it could pursue trade with the Qing Dynasty. Washington wanted to see the ship carry the flag around the globe, and to forge new ties with nations like China.”

      The passage was no doubt to empathize and solidify our good feeling with China but the problem is that it is incorrect in two respects.

      In 1784 George Washington was not the President who commissioned the Empress of China tour since he was President starting in 1789, some 5 years later with the adoption of the Constitution.

      The second error is that it was not Washington who commissioned the 1784 tour, but actually Thomas Mifflin, 5th President of the United States of America in Congress Assembled. None of our illustrious pressmen in the so-called mainstream media seem to have noted this yet they readily devoured even lesser mind-benders by some previous Chief Executives. In this context it is important since “making nice” with the host country was clearly the objective and conceivably some in the audience – or in the world – may have realized the error and had a better understanding of American history that our own president.

      At least, though, it was during the Qing Dynasty since he knows Chinese history more accurately than American.

      ==================================

      2) Another egregious example of liberal historical revisionism appears in his Cairo speech in Egypt on June 4, 2009 (the “A New Beginning” speech) when, to overawe and ingratiate himself with his Islamic audience, Obama said:

      “The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President, John Adams, wrote, “The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims.” And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.”

      Once again the media gave him a pass on this misinformation and yet the treaty referred to was actually signed not in 1796 when Washington, not Adams, was President but in 1797 by Adams immediately after its unanimous ratification to combat the depredations of the Barbary Pirates.

      But it gets even worse. The treaty he refers to was originally written in Arabic and was translated in questionable fashion by the American who was the Ambassador to Algeria. Later translations from the Arabic by experts in treaty matters and then by a highly respected Arabic translators show that there was no such passage as quoted by Obama but instead a stem-winding bit of Arabic blabber unrelated to the topic presented – the obvious deduction was that the good ambassador took it upon himself to “improve” upon the treaty …. but it was the Arabic copy that was signed, not the mythical translation of that part of it. In any event the comment above was eventually correctly deleted from the treaty and presented in English to the other party within a few years with no such phraseology (and with no objection by the receiving side).

      The “Obama history” version of the statement as above has been used by some – obviously including Obama himself to “show” that we are not a Christian nation. He should have looked instead at the Treaty of Paris of 1783 which ended the Revolutionary War. It begins with the words, “In the Name of the most holy and undivided Trinity …”.

      In effect, then, the statements of Obama and his fellow travelers relying on such phrases are factually, as well as morally, bankrupt. It may have served its purpose of befuddling a few of the Cairo Islamiis; nothing like a good old American soft-shoe dance, eh, even though if is incorrect?? After all, The Cairo speaker does it all the time at home and seems to believe that he dazzles everyone … but then we Americans are really stoopid!!

      I guess that all of this (rug included) is O-history at its finest!!

    I like Mr. Prager, and I frequently listen to him on talk radio. He just has good common sense:o) I would agree that it is all our faults for not passing on to our children what it is to be an American and our way of government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Instead, we’ve let the public, and some private, institutions dumb down our children and young adults by feeding them globalism. It is up to parents and grandparents alike to pass this love for America, and her form of government, down to the next generation, because the schools will not do it!
    I love my country and its people, but I do get frusrated with those people who’ve become sheeple and will only engage in group think instead of thinking for themselves. AWAY WITH BIG GOVERNMENT; the people can govern themselves, and for those who can’t….well, that is what our sheriffs and police officers are for! If people who live in this country want a socialism/nanny state, then let them leave the good ‘ole USA, whose Constitution spells out liberty and responsiblity, and find themselves a new place to live in a communist/socialist country. STOP TRYING TO CHANGE AMERICA’S FORM OF GOVERNMENT! IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, THEN LEAVE!! THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS THE LAW OF THIS LAND AND LET THOSE WHO TAKE OFFICE TO SERVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEVER FORGET IT!

    Sorry for the off topic rant at the end:o) I’m just tired of those who want someone else (big gov.) to run their lives for them instead of taking responsiblity themselves.

      I am with you. If you want sharia law, go live in a place that has it, do not require America to bend. Islam is a political philosophy 100% antithetical to the US Constitution.

        Imam Rauf has recently said that other groups have come here and taken their turns at being “the new kid on the block” and now it is islam’s turn. But the new kid on the block always gets picked on! Like in a sorority/fraterntiy setting, there are pranks on the newbies and you have to learn to take it. Every group that has come here has been given a hard time. The Irish, the Catholic, the Jew, etc etc and down the line were all objects of discrimination and racial/national prejudice here in America. All these groups have taken their knocks and learned through trial and error to be become somewhat assimilated. They did not hurt others in the process to the degree the muslims have done in such a short time. If Imam Rauf seems to feel it is now the muslims turn (to partake in the American dream?) then the muslims have to realize that the new kid on the block has to be able to take the knocks so to speak. But this group will not take it. They will not be criticized one iota. No one can say anything against them. If you do, you may be attacked, villified or even be-headed. And I doubt whether they want to be assimilated in the least. They have disdain for America and the west. So why would they want to live here then? Perhaps there are “moderate” muslims who want to live here in peace. If so, then they can’t threaten us every minute with hurt if someone slips and says or does something they don’t like. Americans do not like power-wielding against them, and they will fight back. It’s too bad the true moderates in the religion will not come forth and show their goodness and love for America, if it exists. Until then, we have to live with the face of hate and attach that to the picture of islam that most Americans think of.

    I have realized that my grown children are among those who have been “dumbed down”. I don’t think they even had civics classes in school. It saddens me no end. They won’t even listen to anything I have to say about what has been and is being done to our great country. I am attempting to teach my young grandchildren what our country stands for by buying them books on our founding and what sacrifices have been made. Education is the key. We have to educate the young as to the meaning of our Constitutional Republic. Maybe in the near future we can manage to change the way the school children are being taught but so many already have the wrong history embedded in their minds.

    A very good documentary that I bought recently really brings all of this out. It is called “Agenda-Grinding America Down”. It can’t be downloaded at this time, you have to purchase it. You can get it by going to http://www.agendadocumentary.com. It costs $18 with shipping and is well worth it. I suggest everyone buy it and pass it around.

    Jan, every time Obama speaks , like getting the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence mixed up, he convinces me again that he is NOT AN AMERICAN!! Like Dr.Kate has stated before, the founders knew this day was going to happen to America and they provided us with the tools to overcome it and restore us to our Constitutional Republic. We can do it!

    • 7 Renee September 16, 2010 at 3:36 pm

      Nancy, Only buy them historical books this Christmas. If they will not listen, then you do not have to buy them what they want. Maybe they might actually READ them after pouting. Sign them inside and hope they will keep them. Maybe this is tough love too now. I can relate Nancy…

  5. 9 thinkwell September 16, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Sorry, I can’t bring myself to consume anything by Dennis Prager anymore so I didn’t click on the video. Unless he has changed his position lately (in which case I would be happy to apologize for what is coming next), he is in complete denial about Obama’s lack of eligibility and ridicules those who have the “temerity” to even question it. Functionally Prager is an Obot tool who, because he is a stealth Trojan Horse “conservative”, is even more dangerous than an honest, out-and-out flaming Obot.

    I could respect his position if he were to opine that, although being a natural born Citizen is a fundamentally important Constitutional requirement for our President, and although Obama’s eligibility is in serious doubt due to the absolute lack of any legal substantiating evidence having been submitted, it would be impractical at this point (Dems in control politically) to do anything about it directly. Of course, I still would completely disagree with him, but at least he wouldn’t be denying obvious facts and wouldn’t be hypocritically overlooking basic requirements of our most fundamental body of law.

    Prager probably would see nothing wrong with Bobby Jindal running for President. He is a CINO of the worst Trojan Horse type and is not ever to be trusted, IMO. If he doesn’t completely reverse his ways, I hope he fails professionally and fades into irrelevant oblivion on the pundit scene.

      Wow, thinkwell, I hadven’t picked that up about Mr. Prager. But, then again, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if what you say ends up being the truth. I’ve never heard him speak on Obama’s eligibility, but most of the talk radio personalities will not touch the Obama eligiblity. We’ve tried bringing it to Herman Cain’s attention, along with other truth-loving patriots, and everytime it came up he tried so hard to change the subject. Once, he left his audience with a statement which more or less said that the American people are too dumb to handle that deep stuff of the Constitution. I was flabergasted, to say the least. And, he has many who are asking him to run for POTUS. I say no to Herman Cain, whom I do like, now, and yes to Alan West for POTUS in 2012. However, with Allen West campaigning for this November election, I doubt he’ll be running for President so soon. Too bad!

    TAQIYA IS SYNONYMOUS WITH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

    TAQIYA is the Muslim art of lying to deliberately deceive their enemies–the infidels. Barry Sotoero, a devout, jihadist Muslim, pretending to be a Christian, has mastered the art of TAQIYA and hasn’t stopped practicing it to this very moment. It appears the practice of taqiya has trickled down to the entire DNC.

    TAQIYA is synonymous with LYING which is synonymous with POLITICAL CORRECTNESS which demands that we don’t call liars– liars– even when they are baldface lying. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS SYNONYMOUS WITH INTIMIDATION. Intimidation is synonymous with LOSS OF FREE SPEECH. The changing of the words on the Hawaiian Certification is just another trick of Islam. They rewrite history or rename actions Any type of factual truth that is in opposition of what they say or do–FORBIDDEN. Thus with that kind of control–they can do and say anything they choose without opposition. Isn’t this precisely what Barry has been doing since he was a “community organizer.”

    The problem with liars and Muslims is they under estimate their victims and assume they are stupid. What they don’t realize is– more often than not, those lied to have long memories and remember the lies. The next time these taqiya sh*theads lie, they are caught. Thus Barry, the taqiya practicing thugs surrounding him, Imam Rauf and the entire collection of Muslim dogs in the White House have LOST THEIR CREDIBILITY!
    This past week’s voting results confirms this statement. November will be more revealing.

    Our greatest weapon in the war of ‘TAKING BACK AMERICA” is our insistence of accurately identifying and labeling exactly what is to. Nidel Hassan is a Muslim jihadist who committed a terrorist attack upon Fort Hood. The proposed so called Mosque/cultural center is a Muslim jihadist headquarters to expedite the Islamization of America and the Western World. ISLAM IS A COMPLETE GOVERNMENT AT WAR WITH THE WESTERN WORLD–NOT A RELIGION. IT IS OUR ENEMY. BARRY SOTOEOR AKA BARACK INSANE OBAMA IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT AND EVERYTHING HE DOES IS NOT LEGAL.

    A useful tool in evaluating things that are not known with certainty is Occam’s razor. When multiple competing hypotheses are equal in other respects, the principle recommends selecting the hypothesis that introduces the fewest assumptions and postulates the fewest entities. It is in this sense that Occam’s razor is usually understood. I condense this to the simple question: what is most likely? In our discussion of the documents which AKA has hidden, most of this article is an examination of which explanation is most likely.

    For example, which is most likely;
    (a) AKA OBAMA is hiding documents that are innocuous?
    (b) AKA OBAMA is hiding documents that are damaging?

    What we know with certainty is that AKA OBAMA is not practicing the virtue of full disclosure. ” The biggest question, and the biggest reason for asking more questions, is the fact Obama has enlisted law firms across the nation to battle every attempt to access, among other documents, his birth, schooling, immigration or passport records.” New Jersey attorney Mario Apuzzo

    Just because you exit you are suspected of having illegal items in your vehicle?????

    Louisiana Narcotics Checkpoint

    http://420tribune.com/2010/03/narcotics-checkpoint/

    Returning from a trip along one of our nation’s most highly trafficked interstates, I-20, I happened across this foreboding sign. I didn’t have any bud on me at the time, but if you’re anything like me, you usually take a few bowls with you on road trips. Almost instinctively, I pulled over.

    I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. They were going to shut down the entire interstate to check for suspicious vehicles and persons, as if crossing into Louisiana were crossing the Mexican border? Bienvenue en Louisiane, indeed.

    After snapping a few shots of the sign, I pulled back onto the highway, ready to take additional pictures once I arrived at the checkpoint. However, the checkpoint never surfaced. Now I understand why:

    The local sheriff’s office had established the signs as a “ruse” to direct motorists to exit off the highway after viewing the warning of the upcoming DUI/Narcotics checkpoint. In fact, there was no checkpoint further down I-40. Instead, the sheriff set up a checkpoint at the end of the ramp of the first exit available to motorists after the posted signs, an exit not frequently used since no services were offered at the exit.

    Isn’t that some bullshit?

    SO WHO IS GOING TO CALL THE EMPEROR NAKED

    The wolves are getting closer to Barry Sotoero aka Barack Hussein Obama as he is backing into a corner. The problem is The FBI, CIA, all of Congress, the Senate, and I guess–60% of the American public already know he is NOT ELIGIBLE.

    What our judicial system has done in the face of America’s attempt to bring it before judges is DENY, SUPPRESS, PROTECT, AND DISMISS ALL OUR LEGAL RECOURSE VIA A CHEAP TRICK CALLED BY THE NAME OF “STANDING”. Now a corrupt or very frightened judge LIND has entered the cesspool of judicial violators of our laws, traditions and constitution and has attempted to make the single most HONORABLE INNOCENT MAN IN AMERICA LOOK GUILTY, LT. COL. TERRENCE LAKIN.

    America through its brave private attorneys whose names are well known to those who have been following the challenge of Barry Sotoero’s eligibility have been fighting this issue almost single handedly at great financial and professional expense. They have been betrayed by whore judges, slut media and trusted news channels live Fox. Bill O’Slyly, Ann Coulter, Glen Beck, and others have all– at one time or another– supported Barry and claimed they believed he was born in Hawaii. O’Slyly went so far as to claim he saw the documents and he is convinced Sotoero was born in Hawaii. The documents he claimed to have seen were the birth announcements in the Hawaiian news papers. (Duh!)

    The candidates running for office this November refuse to even mention the eligibility issue. If they don’t have the patriotic guts to challenge him at this level, you truly don’t believe they will acquire the guts after they take office?

    Arizona which is being harassed by this illegal regime should be throwing his eligibility question right in his taqiya face. Arizona ignores its greatest defense. Jan Brewer and Joe Arpaia should be all over this issue. Imagine an illegal alien usurper president harassing Arizona because it is legally following the laws. This is the height of “Obama audacity”. All Arizona does do is to remain silent?

    The Tea Party people chose to avoid the eligiblity issue when they first began to group out of fear of being ridiculed and called birthers. Instead of being called a “birther” they are called “astro turfers”, racists, dangerous, and even Nazi’s. The ridicule now continues of evil George Soro’s fight the Tea Party web site. Fearless Dr. Taitz has been sanctioned for doing the right thing and now has that added burden to fight.

    With barriers of protection almost as big as the great wall of China, what and how can we do to crack the “invisible shield.” Some people continually promotes Citizen Grand Juries. Yet to date, not one indictment has been officially filed against this shameless laughing in our face criminal.

    We and they (O’Muslim gang) all know that if and when somewhere, some how, this country grows back its stones, the indictments and charges do come forward–IT WILL NOT JUST BE OBAMA. THERE WILL BE THOUSANDS ARRESTED AND TRIED WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THIS TRAVESTY AND BETRAYAL OF AMERICA. Let’s include in the list, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, the entire electoral college, most of Congress and the Senate, and his main campaign team for starters!

    TEA Party has gone GLOBAL!!!!

    http://michellemalkin.com/2010/09/16/tea-party/

    An anti-tax, anti-government Tea Party has set up shop in Australia, inspired by the US-based movement that has turned the Republican Party upside down.

    The Australian T.E.A. Party (an acronym for Taxed Enough Already) will be targeting pre-selections across the country and heavily promotes its links to “our friends” in the United States.

    Reluctant spokesman David Goodridge – “just call me the website editor” – says the grassroots movement has no plans to register as a political party, won’t stand candidates and won’t accept politicians as members.

    A Patriot’s Claim

    I am an individual.
    I exist in the past, present and future.
    I chart the path my life will go.
    I exercise the liberty that God gave me as a gift.

    You are a collective.
    You exist only in the present to control the future.
    You have an agenda to nudge and control the collective.
    You seek obedience and submission to your authority.

    I am an individual.
    I have a Divine purpose to serve and protect.
    I have faith in the pathway I have been placed on.
    I demonstrate citizenship through my actions, not words.

    You are a collective.
    You wish to be served as the divine authority.
    You have faith in your authority.
    You seek slaves to consume by perverse words.

    I am an individual.
    I seek freedom from oppression and tyranny.
    I will never submit to unjust human rulers.
    I will defend freedom with life and limb.

    You are a collective.
    You yearn to oppress and terrorize.
    You demand submission to your authority.
    You despise man’s freedom and will take life to end it.

    I am an individual.
    I yearn for equality for all men.
    I have the spirit of hope.
    I have confidence in victory over tyranny.

    You are a collective.
    You seek to divide men.
    You believe you are hope.
    You are overconfident and arrogant by exercising tyranny.

    My names are written as heroes, liberators, men of honor, and patriots.

    Your names are those of tyrants, dictators, and despots.

    Our cry is ‘Sic semper evello mortem Tyrannis’ (Thus always death comes to tyrants).

    You have no cry.

    Our honor is ‘Nostrum Vitas Nam Libertas’ (Our lives for Liberty).

    You know no honor.

    Boston public school apologizes for allowing students to pray in mosque

    Yesterday when this story broke I was in transit and so wasn’t able to post it, but by now the whole world has seen the footage above of public school students praying inside a mosque. Now the school has apologized for allowing this to happen, and that’s fine — but why isn’t anyone calling the Islamic Society of Boston to account for its role in making this happen as well? Or is it simply understood that they will try to convert Americans to Islam by hook or by crook whenever possible, and no one can expect them to adhere to basic rules of civility or decency in doing so?

    And would the school have apologized if this had not come to public attention? Or would they cheerfully have allowed it to happen again and again, with other groups of students?

    We have lost control of the Government and its institutions. Got to tell you the more I read (Napolitanos book) the more the incredible degree of the problem becomes apparent-It is the right thing to do to inspect and disect each and every local, State and Federal candidate-a job we must do because others (there is no responsible media) have failed us entirely. We have been completely sold out by the Judiciary who was intended by the Founders to protect those who were opposing the acts of Government which violated the Constitution. Any Senators with any conscience at all should have stopped Kangaroo at all costs from being approved for the Supreme Court. They are all in on it-it is all about power-They have it -we dont-and f-us.

    Rich T, thank you for this. It is outrageous! Our school children can’t even say “under God” while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and these kids can be taken to a mosque and encouraged to pray? The fact that the little girls were made to separate from the men and boys should tell them something about sharia law.

    This is so big in our country it seems like it will be almost impossible to stop it but we must fight it with all we have or we and our future generations will be subjected to just what they are in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.

    GEORGE WASHINGTON INTERVIEWS SOBAMA…

    George Washington: My son, tell me, how will you preserve the Union?

    SOBAMA: Union? What Union?

    GW: Why, the Union of the Republic of the Americas, the United States, the one you are supposedly “president” of?

    SOBAMA: Oh, yeah that. Auh-auh-um-auh-um-auh…

    GW: Have you no answer? You speak like a twaddling simpleton. A leader cannot be moot, especially in a time of crisis. He must be adroit of mind. Snap out of it!

    (SLAP! SLAP! SLAP! – SOBAMA rubs the side of his sore face where GW hit him)

    SOBAMA: Man, I was just stall’n for time so I could fabricate some verbose and flamboyant flowery answer that makes absolutely no sense but would stupefy you with awestruck wonder, ya know, like I did during my campaign to trick the dumb mindless masses in voting for me when I’m really just a hollow suit.

    GW: I see.

    (uncomfortable pause)

    GW: Again, my son, how will you preserve the Union for future posterity and to secure the hard fought liberties established and sustained by the spilt blood of self-sacrificing generations before you?

    SOBAMA: Well, Georgy-Peorgy, I’m doin’ away with that Union crap. Yeah, I’m instituting CHANGE.

    GW: Pray tell, what in God’s heaven do you mean, “change”? Are you tampering with the sacredness of our Land’s Constitution?

    SOBAMA: Actually, I’m circumventing it with all kinds of counter legislation in cahoots with the Democrats compounded with executive orders to neutralize the Constitution and shift the balance of power into the Executive Branch. The other two branches will be mere facades. Communist Red China is my model; I’m gonna establish a One Party Jobs Patronage Slave System. That’s the change I covertly meant from day one. LOL! I really pulled the wool over those dumb Americans. If only they knew I’m not American at all! That’s why all my personal documentation and birth certificate are sealed out of sight by law. By the time they figure it all out it’ll be too late.

    YORK COUNTY —

    Rock Hill officials plan to turn off utility taps of county residents who refuse annexation by today’s noon deadline despite being asked for an extension, city officials confirmed Tuesday.

    Starting Monday the city plans to phase out service to residents who do not agree to annexation. Those who agree to annexation will not be affected, city officials said.

    and read what the blogger @ Cliffs of Insanity has to say to remedy this.

    http://cliffsofinsanity2010.blogspot.com/2010/09/rock-hill-south-carolina-water-wars.html

    How to keep your water on 101:

    1. put on gloves. Go out to meter
    2. Open lid.
    3. verify that meter is on.
    4. Fill with 6 bags of quick setting fiber reinforced concrete, add H2O.
    5. Close lid.
    6. Laugh at city lackey trying to shut off your water.
    7. When confronted, act dumb and blame neighborhood kids.
    (even better, do the whole area this way)

    Plan “B”:
    1. Find city council member most supporting annexation.
    2. Cover their house / yard with signs calling them a communist/ socialist/ Marxist/ tyrant ect.

    Plan “c”:
    1. Purchase non-traceable Trac Phone cell phone
    2. Use phone to “shut down” council meetings (use your imagination, just don’t call from near home and remove the battery when not in use)

    Plan “D”:
    1. Send people to city council meetings.
    2. Pull fire alarm as meeting begins.
    3. When everyone returns, do it again.
    4. Bring meetings to a standstill.

    When you can’t fight city hall, sometimes you should just harass them b/c civil disobedience DOES work.

    On the other hand I don’t like it when I see others call her a b*tch. That’s plain wrong and sexist. So, she was a lousy dresser. So she cleaned up her act…picking on a woman’s clothing is sexist when it is uncalled for. She cleaned up her act and is matching her clothes better. She has a tough body to fit clothes. Criticism is okay but it appears people are stuck on stupid with the same ol meme from when before she cleaned up her style. She made an effort to clean up her wardrobe act so stop with the sexism regardless of whether you like her or not.

    Do You Really Know The Constitution?
    September 17, 2010 by Chip Wood
    Today is Constitution Day — a day specifically designated by an Act of Congress when Americans are supposed to honor the remarkable document that created our system of government. The date was chosen because the Constitution was approved at the original Constitutional Convention on Sept. 17, 1787.
    The act that created Constitution Day mandates that all publicly-funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day. Let’s see how well the schools have done their job.
    Ask a recent high school or college graduate to take the following brief quiz. I’ll be interested to hear how many of the 20 questions he or she answers correctly.
    And be sure to take the quiz yourself. Even if you score 100 percent, it’s good to be reminded of some of the fundamental principles upon which our country was founded. The quiz was compiled by an old friend, John McManus, who is president of the John Birch Society. Thanks, John, for permission to share this with my readers today.

    Has the Constitution always guided our country?
    What are the three branches of government named in the Constitution?
    Does the Constitution allow the Supreme Court to make law?
    Does the Constitution empower the President to make law?
    Does the Constitution give the Federal government any power in the field of education?
    Where in the Constitution is there authorization to dispense foreign aid?
    Did the Constitution give the Federal government power to create a bank?
    Can the provisions of a treaty supersede the Constitution?
    Does the Constitution allow a President to take the nation into war?
    Can you name any of the four crimes mentioned in the Constitution?
    Should the Bill of Rights be considered part of the original Constitution?
    According to the Constitution, how can a President and other national officers be removed from office?
    How many amendments have been added to the Constitution?
    How is an amendment added to the Constitution?
    Does the Constitution say anything about illegal immigration?
    Is the term of a President limited by the Constitution?
    Which part of the Federal government holds “the power of the purse”?
    Does the Constitution provide a method for expelling a member of Congress?
    How many times is the word “democracy” mentioned in the Constitution?
    Does the Bill of Rights grant the people free speech, freedom of the press, the right to possess a weapon, etc?
    It wasn’t as easy as you thought it would be, was it? Here are the answers, also as provided by McManus.

    No. Originally the nation functioned under the Continental Congress and the Articles of Confederation. Eleven years after the Declaration of Independence the Constitution was written, agreed to and sent to the states for ratification. When ratified by nine states (as the document itself prescribed), the Constitution was declared to be the new governmental system. That occurred on Sept. 13, 1788. The new government was ordered to be convened on March 4, 1789.
    Legislative, Executive and Judicial.
    No. The very first sentence in the Constitution states: “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States….” Any Supreme Court decision is the law of the case that binds only the plaintiff and the defendant. The meaning of the word “all” has not been changed.
    No. Executive Orders issued by the President that bind the entire nation are illicit because, as noted above, “All legislative powers” are possessed by Congress. An Executive Order that binds only the employees of the Federal government (such as granting a holiday) is proper because the President should be considered to be the holder of power much like that possessed by the CEO of a company. But the entire nation is not in the employ of the President. The President does have a role in lawmaking with his possession of a veto. He can veto a measure approved by Congress (which can be overturned by a two-thirds vote in each house of Congress), or simply allow it to become law by doing nothing within 10 days, “Sundays excepted.”

    No. The Constitution contains no mention of any power “herein granted” in the field of education.
    No such authorization appears in the Constitution.
    No. Congress was granted power to “coin money,” meaning it was to have the right to create a mint where precious metal could be stamped into coinage of fixed size, weight and purity. There is no Constitutional authority for the Federal government to have created the Federal Reserve.
    Absolutely not. Thomas Jefferson responded to those who consider treaty-making power to be “boundless” by stating, “If it is, then we have no Constitution.”
    It does not. The sole power to declare the nation at war is possessed by Congress. Congress last used this power at the beginning of World War II, when war was declared on Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor. (Germany declared war on the U.S. the next day.) A congressional vote to authorize the President to enforce United Nations Security Council resolutions should never be considered a substitute for a formal declaration of war.
    The four crimes mentioned are: Treason, bribery, piracy and counterfeiting.
    Many do hold that view because if the promise to add a Bill of Rights had not been made during the ratification process, some states would not have ratified the Constitution.
    The President and other high officers of the Federal government can be impeached by a majority in the House and tried by the Senate. Impeachment does not constitute removal; it should be considered the equivalent of an indictment that must be followed by a trial. Two-thirds of the Senators “present” must approve removal at the subsequent trial to effect removal.
    There are 27. The first 10 (the Bill of Rights) can be considered part of the original Constitution. Amendment 18 was repealed by Amendment 21. This means that, in 223 years, only 15 other amendments have been added. The process was deliberately made difficult to keep anything dangerous or silly from being added to the Constitution in the heat of passion.
    Congress can propose an amendment when two-thirds of both Houses of Congress vote to do so. Any proposed amendment must then by ratified by the legislature or a convention in three-quarters of the States. Amendments can also be proposed by a Federal Constitutional convention called by two-thirds of the States. Any amendment arising from a Constitutional convention must also be ratified by the legislature or a convention in three-quarters of the states.
    Not directly. But Article IV, Section 4 assigns to the Federal government the duty “to protect each of them [the States] from invasion.” It does not specify that the invasion must be military. When 12 million people enter our nation illegally, it is an invasion that should be repelled by the Federal government.
    Yes. In 1951, Amendment 22 was added to the Constitution to limit any President to two terms. The only President who served longer than two terms was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who held office during a fourth four-year term. He died in April 1945 shortly after beginning his 13th year in office.
    The House of Representatives. Article I, Section 7 states: “All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives….” If a majority in the House (218 of its 435 members) refuses to originate a bill to raise revenue for something, then no funds can be spent on that activity.
    Two-thirds of each House has the authority to expel any of its members for cause even though the member has been elected by voters.
    The word “democracy” does not appear in the Constitution. Our nation is a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. The Founders feared Democracy (unrestricted rule by majority) and favored a Republic (rule of law where the law limits the government). James Madison wrote: “…. Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
    No. The Declaration of Independence, which provides the philosophical base of our nation, states very clearly that our rights are granted to us by our Creator. The various rights noted in the Bill of Rights were not granted by government. The purpose of the Bill of Rights is to prevent the Federal government from suspending any of those God-given rights, including the right to possess a weapon. Those who claim “Second Amendment rights,” for instance, make a big mistake with such a statement. If the right is granted by the Second Amendment, meaning by government, it can be taken away by government. If the right is granted by God, only He can take it away.
    While every politician pays lip service to the Constitution (the President, Vice President, and every member of Congress take an oath to “preserve and protect” it), the sad truth is that vast majority of actions taken by the Federal government are not authorized by the Constitution.
    I have heard it said that, if the Constitution were fully and honestly enforced today, the Federal government would be 20 percent of its present size and would cost 20 percent of its present budget. I think those numbers are an exaggeration; I suspect the truth would be closer to 10 percent.
    Just imagine: No foreign aid, no Departments of Education, Housing, Health, Agriculture or Homeland Security. No commissions, bureaucratic monstrosities or other meddlesome agencies that “harass our people and eat out their substance.” (That’s an actual indictment of King George from the Declaration of Independence.)
    What would this country be like if the Constitution were fully and honestly enforced? I hope some day we’ll find out.
    Until next time, keep some powder dry.

    What piece of this logic am I missing??? The Fed. told Gov. Perry that none of the requested Nat. Guard troops could be sent to Texas because of the cost. Texas would have to pay for any additional troops out of state funds. However, the Fed. can spend tax payers money to prosecute a state who attempts to defend its borders.

    What am I missing here???

    Has anyone seen the front of Yahoo news with the remake of our paper currency? The $1 would have the usurper on it & $100 would have the socialist FDR on it. All of the proposed look like the euro bills.
