Pat Caddell EVISCERATES the Modern Press as Democrat operatives

with one comment

Drop what you’re doing. You MUST watch this video RIGHT NOW, before you watch any news today, and you must remember it as you are watching any news in the future…

I haven’t posted in so long because I was beginning to feel like it was a useless effort. Oh, I’ve reblogged a few things, but for the most part I haven’t bothered to write anything because in my mind it was a waste of time.

This video will NOT be a waste of your time. I promise. It was posted on You Tube back in September, 2012 just before the election. I so wish more people had taken heed of his alarm, because it’s only gotten worse since then. Everything he says is even more relevant now in 2015, and it will continue to be relevant until the American people put their (collective) foot down and say NO MORE.

Don’t Stingray Me, Bro?

leave a comment »

Constitutional violation issues are being raised on a technology which can be used by law enforcement to find the whereabouts of, well, pretty much anyone carrying a cell phone.

Stingray is a device which has the capability to track the location of someone’s cell phone even when the cell phone is not in use to make a call.

If used properly, this technology could go a long way to defend our country at home or bring criminals to justice… The problem is that some law enforcement officers believe they don’t need a warrant to use it.

The sensible view would be that if anyone is going to ‘break into’ ANY of my personal property (even if it just my cell phone), they better have a warrant. AND probable cause to believe I am committing some sort of crime.

You be the judge:

Paul Krugman: “Death Panels” and taxes will fix the debt crisis…”

with one comment

Well, we tried to warn you. But you wouldn’t listen.

Now Paul Krugman is admitting the idea of the “Death Panel” is actually TRUE…

Of course, AFTER he admitted the concept was a reality, he went on to ‘clarify’ what he meant, but really what it boils down to is that the government will be able to decide who gets treatment and who does not get it based on the projected value of their lives, which will put the government in the unique position of making a value judgement about a person’s life.

Arizona Court Decision S.B. 1070: Does anyone ever READ the Constitution anymore??

leave a comment »

Arizona - The Grand Canyon State - State Motto: (Latin) Ditat Deus ~ "God Enriches"

I’m not real sure why Governor Brewer has not asked that the ‘decision’ against them by an Arizona judge over their new illegal immigration law be thrown out on grounds that said court does not have jurisdiction over the State of Arizona. Only the Supreme Court does.

In contrast to the Supreme Court, which was established by Article III of the Constitution, the district courts were established by Congress. There is no constitutional requirement that there be any district courts at all.

(Source: Wikipedia – District Courts)

Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution says:

In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction…

Check out Federalist No. 81 (13th para), Alexander Hamilton comments on Art. III, Sec. 2, clause 2:

…Let us now examine in what manner the judicial authority is to be distributed between the supreme and the inferior courts of the Union. The Supreme Court is to be invested with original jurisdiction, only “in cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers, and consuls, and those in which A STATE shall be a party.” Public ministers of every class are the immediate representatives of their sovereigns. All questions in which they are concerned are so directly connected with the public peace, that, as well for the preservation of this, as out of respect to the sovereignties they represent, it is both expedient and proper that such questions should be submitted in the first instance to the highest judicatory of the nation. Though consuls have not in strictness a diplomatic character, yet as they are the public agents of the nations to which they belong, the same observation is in a great measure applicable to them. In cases in which a State might happen to be a party, it would ill suit its dignity to be turned over to an inferior tribunal….”

Frankly I wonder if this would also apply to Prop 8 in California since both Judge Susan Bolton (AZ) and Judge Vaughn Walker (CA) are just U.S. District judges… Another really good reason our nation’s leaders need to read and understand the U.S. Constitution. Oh, if they only felt the document was actually applicable today.

Mexican prosecutors say prison guards lent killers guns, let them out to carry out massacre

leave a comment »

How can you effectively run a government and serve all the people if so many elements in the government are so absolutely corrupt? I think even at it’s most corrupt, the United States never had THESE kind of corrupt public ‘servants’:

“MEXICO CITY (AP) — Guards and officials at a prison in northern Mexico allegedly let inmates out, lent them guns and sent them off in official vehicles to carry out drug-related killings, including the massacre of 17 people last week, prosecutors said Sunday.

After carrying out the killings the inmates would return to their cells, the Attorney General’s Office said in a revelation that was shocking even for a country wearied by years of drug violence and corruption.

“According to witnesses, the inmates were allowed to leave with authorization of the prison director … to carry out instructions for revenge attacks using official vehicles and using guards’ weapons for executions,” office spokesman Ricardo Najera said at a news conference.

The director of the prison in Gomez Palacio in Durango state and three other officials were placed under a form of house arrest pending further investigation. No charges have yet been filed.

Prosecutors said the prison-based hit squad is suspected in three mass shootings, including the July 18 attack on a party in the city of Torreon, which is near Gomez Palacio. In that incident, gunmen fired indiscriminately into a crowd of mainly young people in a rented hall, killing 17 people, including women…”
