Winston Churchill said
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

6 Reasons Obama Is Untrustworthy on Guns

If the idea that "Obama's trying to take away your guns" is an "imaginary fiction," it's not because he does not want to take away your guns. It's because political and legal realities prevent him from doing so. But for anyone who cares about the right to armed self-defense, the understanding that Obama does not like guns and reads the Second Amendment so narrowly that it has no practical meaning colors everything he does or proposes in this area. When he talks about "universal background checks," for example, you have to wonder how that requirement could be enforced without a national gun registry, a prerequisite for the sort of mass confiscation that Obama has repeatedly praised. That's not paranoia; that's logic.

A Little History On Hillary

Forgot about some of this stuff?

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting

a female attorney general. Her first two selections

were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to

withdraw their names from consideration. Next she

chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as

“my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that

Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch

Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens

of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the

head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was

her selection. When a little probing led to the

discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to

be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to

make some more recommendations. She chose former law

partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster

for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the

Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel

went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and

Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of

“Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered

travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and

the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She

managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired.

This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and

caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee,

Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the

enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A

jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to

recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the

position of Director of White House security. When

Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of

about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the

widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly

Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone,

and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White

House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its

White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of

service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of

sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put

in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal

defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the

debacle was:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones

lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled

with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led

to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After

$80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's

investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill

lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his

license to practice law for 'lying under oath' to a

grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House

of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of

justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do

not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I

don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return

an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and

artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year

of this type low-life mess?

Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly

incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State

and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation

– we have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to

her loyal fans - “what difference does it make?”

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting

Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

And just think, since leaving the White House, the Clinton's, through 2014,

have made $221 million and BOTH are still drawing taxpayer funded U. S.

Government pensions.

Thanks to Phil. Feel free to pass this along. 

Do Executive Orders Violate the Constitution ?

The Myths
Presidents can issue executive orders that are legally binding on the general public. 

These executive orders are backed by the full force of law just like laws passed through the formal legislative process.

 A president can use executive orders to go around congress.

The president can use executive orders to modify laws passed by congress and can order executive departments to selectively enforce provisions of laws.

These executive orders are authorized by the Constitution.

The Truth

Yes the president can issue executive orders however these orders are only binding on members of the executive department of the federal government. They are not legally binding on anyone outside the executive department.

Only laws passed through the formal legislative process have full force of law. Executive orders do not meet this requirement.

Congress alone has the power to write and pass laws.  If congress chooses not to pass laws that the president advocates for the president can in no way act unilaterally. The president is restrained by the Constitution.

The president must enforce laws that are passed by the formal legislative process as they are written.  If the president does not like a bill passed by congress or feels it violates the Constitution then the president can veto it before it becomes law.  

Issuing executives orders that are given the full force of law is a clear violation of several provisions of the Constitution.
The Facts

The framers of the Constitution greatly feared concentration of power into a strong tyrannical central government so they incorporated many features in the Constitution that they believed would prevent this from happening. The Constitution created a government with three distinct branches.  Each branch is granted separate distinct powers that are clearly spelled out in the Constitution.  This separation of powers is one of the cornerstones of the Constitution that they believed would prevent concentration of power.

RTWT It spells out exactly what each branch of government is responsible for, including making law. 

Obama can meet with whomever he want's, but his pen is only good for signing the laws that congress passes. He has no authority to enact any gun laws at all. He's blowing hot air up the asses of the gun haters
