70 Years ago today – lest we forget


I’ve seen tyrants and dictators enter and exit the global stage. Yet as the world prepares to mark the 70th anniversary of the Auschwitz liberation, it is perhaps well and right that we reflect on how the Holocaust shocked the moral imagination on a scale the world could scarcely fathom.

Why ponder such things? Because for far too many, the Holocaust remains a mystery.

A major poll taken last year of 53,000 people found that just 54 percent had ever heard of the Holocaust. Knowledge of Auschwitz is likely even more limited, particularly among young people. Some schoolchildren even thought Auschwitz was a type of beer.

Women prohibited from getting birth control? Not so fast……


Did the ruling with the SCOTUS prohibit women from getting birth control? ABSOLUTELY NOT.

As a matter of fact there are many items that even Hobby Lobby and others will provide for women through their health care plans. But the ruling just ensure that:

# 1 Women can still get any type of birth control they want that is legal.

# 2 Hobby Lobby does not have to provide items that they feel contradict their moral & religious beliefs. Their insurance can STILL PROVIDE these items for the women (if the women was to add that to their plans) but this can not be billed back to Hobby Lobby (and others who fall under this ruling).

SUMMARY: Women are not being denied anything. They can have any legal item & type of contraception they want, they just have to A: get it added to their plans or B: pay for it themselves.

So as some of the women are saying “It is not my bosses business !!!!” I agree 100%. Go buy it if you want it. I think that this is a win for women everywhere.

NOTE: Did you see what that evil Hobby Lobby pays their employees? You should check it out for yourself.

An outbreak of lawlessness


An outbreak of lawlessness

For all the gnashing of teeth over the lack of comity and civility in Washington, the real problem is not etiquette but the breakdown of political norms, legislative and constitutional.

Such as the one just spectacularly blown up in the Senate. To get three judges onto a coveted circuit court, frustrated Democrats abolished the filibuster for executive appointments and (non-Supreme Court) judicial nominations.

What Obama didn’t know: The many controversies that the White House says the president was kept in the dark about.

The problem is not the change itself. It’s fine that a president staffing his administration should need 51 votes rather than 60. Doing so for judicial appointments, which are for life, is a bit dicier. Nonetheless, for about 200 years the filibuster was nearly unknown in blocking judicial nominees. So we are really just returning to an earlier norm.

The violence to political norms here consisted in how that change was executed. By brute force — a near party-line vote of 52 to 48 . This was a disgraceful violation of more than two centuries of precedent. If a bare majority can change the fundamental rules that govern an institution, then there are no rules. Senate rules today are whatever the majority decides they are that morning.

What distinguishes an institution from a flash mob is that its rules endure. They can be changed, of course. But only by significant supermajorities. That’s why constitutional changes require two-thirds of both houses plus three-quarters of the states. If we could make constitutional changes by majority vote, there would be no Constitution.

As of today, the Senate effectively has no rules. Congratulations, Harry Reid. Finally, something you will be remembered for.

Barack Obama may be remembered for something similar. His violation of the proper limits of executive power has become breathtaking. It’s not just making recess appointments when the Senate is in session. It’s not just unilaterally imposing a law Congress had refused to pass — the Dream Act — by brazenly suspending large sections of the immigration laws.

We’ve now reached a point where a flailing president, desperate to deflect the opprobrium heaped upon him for the false promise that you could keep your health plan if you wanted to, calls a hasty news conference urging both insurers and the states to reinstate millions of such plans.

Except that he is asking them to break the law. His own law. Under Obamacare, no insurer may issue a policy after 2013 that does not meet the law’s minimum coverage requirements. These plans were canceled because they do not.

The law remains unchanged. The regulations governing that law remain unchanged. Nothing is changed except for a president proposing to unilaterally change his own law from the White House press room.

That’s banana republic stuff, except that there the dictator proclaims from the presidential balcony.

Remember how for months Democrats denounced Republicans for daring to vote to defund or postpone Obamacare? Saboteurs! Terrorists! How dare you alter “the law of the land.”

This was nonsense from the beginning. Every law is subject to revision and abolition if the people think it turned out to be a bad idea. Even constitutional amendments can be repealed — and have been (see Prohibition).

After indignant denunciation of Republicans for trying to amend “the law of the land” constitutionally (i.e. in Congress assembled), Democrats turn utterly silent when the president lawlessly tries to do so by executive fiat.

Nor is this the first time. The president wakes up one day and decides to unilaterally suspend the employer mandate, a naked invasion of Congress’s exclusive legislative prerogative, enshrined in Article I. Not a word from the Democrats. Nor now regarding the blatant usurpation of trying to restore canceled policies that violate explicit Obamacare coverage requirements.

And worse. When Congress tried to make Obama’s “fix” legal — i.e., through legislation — he opposed it. He even said he would veto it. Imagine: vetoing the very bill that would legally enact his own illegal fix.

At rallies, Obama routinely says he has important things to do and he’s not going to wait for Congress. Well, amending a statute after it’s been duly enacted is something a president may not do without Congress. It’s a gross violation of his Article II duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.

A Senate with no rules. A president without boundaries. One day, when a few bottled-up judicial nominees and a malfunctioning health-care Web site are barely a memory, we will still be dealing with the toxic residue of this outbreak of authoritative lawlessness.

George Washington Thanksgiving Day Proclamation


A day of Thanksgiving “and” Prayer

One can only pray that another man comes along one day that has even help the integrity, and moral courage as our first President of the United States. This a man who could have been King of America if he so chose to be at that time, chose instead to only serve 2 terms as President. He knew that serving more would be bad for the country. God has surly blessed George Washington.

Dec 15th 1791


Although 12 amendments were originally proposed, the 10 that were ratified became the Bill of Rights in 1791. They defined citizens’ rights in relation to the newly established government under the Constitution.

During the debates on the adoption of the Constitution, its opponents repeatedly charged that the Constitution as drafted would open the way to tyranny by the central government. Fresh in their minds was the memory of the British violation of civil rights before and during the Revolution. They demanded a “bill of rights” that would spell out the immunities of individual citizens. Several state conventions in their formal ratification of the Constitution asked for such amendments; others ratified the Constitution with the understanding that the amendments would be offered.

On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the United States therefore proposed to the state legislatures 12 amendments to the Constitution that met arguments most frequently advanced against it. Articles 3 to 12, ratified December 15, 1791, by three-fourths of the state legislatures, constitute the first 10 amendments of the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights. Article 2 concerning “varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives” was finally ratified on May 7, 1992 as the 27th Amendment to the Constitution. The first amendment, which concerned the number of constituents for each Representative, was never ratified.

VETERANS FIELD GUIDE TO GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN


Appropriations Lapse Plan

The President, the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and the administration strongly believe that a lapse in appropriations should not have occurred on October 1, 2013, and Congress should act to fund critical Government operations. During the government shutdown, VA medical centers, clinics and other health services have advance appropriations for 2014 and will remain open. VA has funds available to ensure claims processing and payments in the compensation, pension, education, and vocational rehabilitation programs will continue through late October. However, in the event of a prolonged shutdown, claims processing and payments in these programs will be suspended when funds are exhausted.

VA has produced a 2-page information sheet, the Veterans Field Guide to Government Shutdown, which summarizes all of the services that will be available and those that will be impacted by potential lapse in appropriations. This file will be updated as needed. The department’s detailed contingency plan is also available below.

THE LIST: UNNECESSARILY SHUT DOWN BY OBAMA TO INFLICT PUBLIC PAIN


parks shut-down-AP

Breitbart is reporting that while our president still enjoys his essential employees and locations: the White House chefs, Camp David, and a military golf course, there doesn’t seem to be any question that in mercenary pursuit of a political win, this White House is determined to unreasonably punish as many everyday people as possible. And this includes children sick with cancer. That might sound like hyperbole, but it is not.

Although Barack Obama’s chefs have been deemed “essential,” employees at the National Institutes of Health who offer last-chance experimental cancer treatments for children suffering from cancer have not. Worse still, House Republicans have offered to compromise with the president and single the NIH out for funding. The White House has threatened a veto.

Using children sick with cancer as pawns is community organizing on steroids. And the media are covering for him. When the media thought they could emotionally blackmail the GOP with these sick children, telling their story was all the rage. Now that it is Obama and Senate Democrats wrist-flicking refusing treatment for these children, suddenly the media aren’t too interested in telling their story.

There are many other examples of this president’s cold-hearted fanaticism and willingness to punish people for reasons that seem to have much more to with spite than what is and is not “essential.” In fact, there are a number of examples where Obama seems to be spending more money and using more resources to close and block and inconvenience than to just leave it alone.
The media may or may not report on these individual occurrences, but what they will never do is provide the American people with the full context and scope of Obama’s shrill pettiness.
Below is a list of illogical, unnecessary, and shockingly spiteful moves our government is making in the name of essential and non-essential.

This list will be regularly updated, and if you have something you feel should be added, please email me at jnolte@breitbart.com or tweet me @NolteNC.

1. Treatments for Children Suffering From Cancer – The GOP have agreed to a compromise by funding part of the government, including the National Institutes of Health, which offers children with cancer last-chance experimental treatment. Obama has threatened to veto this funding.

2. The World War II Memorial – The WWII memorial on the DC Mall is a 24/7 open-air memorial that is not regularly staffed. Although the White House must have known that WWII veterans in their eighties and nineties had already booked flights to visit this memorial, the White House still found the resources to spitefully barricade the attraction.

The Republican National Committee has offered to cover any costs required to keep the memorial open. The White House refused. Moreover, like the NIH, the GOP will pass a compromise bill that would fund America’s national parks. Obama has threatened to veto that bill.

3. Furloughed Military Chaplains Not Allowed to Work for Free – Furloughed military chaplains willing to celebrate Mass and baptisms for free have been told they will be punished for doing so.
4. Business Stops In Florida Keys – Although the GOP have agreed to compromise in the ongoing budget stalemate and fund the parks, Obama has threatened to veto that funding. As a result, small businesses, hunters, and commercial fisherman can’t practice their trade. While the feds have deemed the personnel necessary to keep this area open “non-essential,” the “enforcement officers” to ensure no business is done are “essential.”

5. Obama Blacks Out Sports, Entertainment Programming to Overseas Troops – The American Forces Network (AFN) that provides American sports and entertainment programming to our troops stationed abroad, has been shut down. For some reason, though, AFN News will still broadcast news, just not any of the popular and fun stuff.

Camp David is essential, but popular programming for heroes overseas is non-essential.
6. Obama Closes D-Day Memorial – The GOP have offered to compromise and fund the National Parks. Obama has said he will veto this compromise legislation. As a result, along with 24 other military cemeteries, the D-Day memorial in Normandy has been barricaded.

7. Obama Tries to Close Privately-Funded Mt. Vernon – Although George Washington’s Mt. Vernon estate is privately funded, the feds blocked visitors from entering the parking area because the Park Service maintains the lot. Apparently, the New Media publicity resulted in the feds backing down.

8. Obama Closes Over 100 Privately-Managed Parks That Cost No Money to Run – The U.S. Treasury actually makes money from the rent paid by a private company that “employs about 400-500 camp workers and managers across about a dozen states.” No federal money is used to operate these parks. No federal employees are used to staff these parks. Taxpayers make a profit from these parks. Still, Obama had them closed and as a result 400-500 employees and a private business are taking it in the neck.

9. Obama Closes Self-Sustaining Colonial Farm It Hasn’t Supported Since 1980 – “For the first time in 40 years, the National Park Service (NPS) has finally succeeded in closing the Farm down to the public. In previous budget dramas, the Farm has always been exempted since the NPS provides no staff or resources to operate the Farm.”

10. Obama Tries to Close State-Run Parks in Wisconsin – “The park service ordered state officials to close the northern unit of the Kettle Moraine, Devil’s Lake, and Interstate state parks and the state-owned portion of the Horicon Marsh, but state authorities rebuffed the request because the lion’s share of the funding came from state, not federal coffers.”

11. Obama Closes Vietnam Memorial – The GOP have passed compromise legislation that would fund national memorials and parks, and open them to the public. Obama threatened a veto. Apparently, the “essential” government employees are those erecting barricades, not those who could keep the memorial open.

12. Obama Closes Privately-Owned Hotel, Police Block Parking Lot – “The operator of a 51-room inn located on U.S. government-owned land in North Carolina abandoned his defiant stance on Thursday to keep the property open despite being ordered to close as part of the federal government shutdown.”
October is this inn’s prime season. The GOP have offered compromise funding opening the parks. Obama said he will veto that compromise.

State troopers blocked customers from entering the inn’s parking lot.

13. Park Service Ranger: ‘We’ve Been Told to Make Life As Difficult For People As We Can’ – “It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

If you follow social media and what to find your elected official–here is your link


http://govsm.com/w/Senate

Welcome to the Senate page. All Senators are listed alphabetically by state. Each office’s use of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, RSS feeds and Flickr are tracked, as well as other forms of social media a few offices are currently experimenting in. Campaign pages (which under Senate rules must be kept separate) are dealt with on the Senate Campaigns page along with their respective challengers. All of the icons are linked and clicking on them will take you that Member’s specific social media page. You can move the mouse over the icons in the “Other” section to learn what type of social media they link to.

The columns are sortable. Click on the arrows in the header column to sort. Learn more about advanced sorting here.

Social Media accounts with a * next to them indicate that the account listed is a campaign account and not the office account. I include those ONLY when there is no official Senate office account AND the campaign account is treated by the Senator as their primary account. It would be misleading to say they had no official account when they tweet 3 times a day on their campaign account.

Facebook accounts with a ^ next to them indicate Facebook profiles and not fan pages. Profiles cannot be ranked.

Accounts with an § next to them indicate that the account is not linked from their Senate.gov page. It’s a lot easier to learn if your Senator uses social media if they publicize it. We believe it is important to point out when they fail to do so.

Accounts with an indicate that the account is known to be updated by the Senator personally and not staff.

FYI: According to Harry Reid the TEA Party believes in NO GOVERNMENT. From everything I have read that is not true. They are for limited Gov (IAW the Constitution) and less taxes as in Taxes Enough Already where the T.E.A. came from. But for those who choose to believe otherwise – go for it. I am sure there are some in the TEA party who would want to eliminate the Gov. Just as I am sure there are some on the left who want the Gov to take full control of everything. We who try to invoke “Common Sense” need to make sure their extremes happen. Total Gov is just as bad as Anarchy.

Obama blames Founding Fathers for not being able to dictate ‘change’ – Spokane Conservative | Examiner.com


Obama blames Founding Fathers for not being able to dictate change.

For anyone who knows a little of History they will understand that it was done that way on purpose. Why? So many Presidents like this one can not get elected and do anything they want. Obama in his own words said he wished he could just go around Congress and do what “he feels” needs to be done. My bet is Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Hussein and now  Assad are thankful they did not have a Constitution to keep them in check.

I am sure the founding fathers are thinking they are sure glad they put many of those provisions in the Constitution now.

Delta warns ObamaCare will drive $100 million spike in health care costs | Fox News This can not be true because King Obama told us heath care cost would go down. Or maybe, just maybe he lied. Or should we say instead of lied, he does not know his enough about economic (nor does his administration) therefore we are getting screwed.

Allegations of deadly gas attack test Obama’s ‘red line’ in Syria | Fox News

So what does the USA do about it, if anything. Do we jump in both feet all they way to our necks? Do we stand on the sideline? Do we ask for a coalition of nations to band together? What if anything can or should we do. I do not have the answer but my first thought is nothing. We can not police a country that hates us. It is a lose – lose situation for America.

We do not act – we are cowards, we do not care, we let them die. We do act – we are the aggressors, the occupiers, we caused this.

I say we stand back and wait because this country can not handle another conflict with our pansy ass leaders that will not take a stand of all or nothing. We either fight to win or we do not fight at all. We end up with so many rules of engagement that we get slaughtered ourselves. We may offend someone. WWI and WWII we fought to win and total victory was the ONLY OPTION.

So what do “you” think we should do? You can comment below if you choose to.

What is Possession of a Forged Instrument in Kentucky?


 

Kentucky law makes it a felony crime for any person to knowingly possess a forged instrument with the intent to defraud, deceive, or injure another. (Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 516.050, 516.060.) Under certain circumstances, the crime is charged as a misdemeanor. (Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 516.070.)

Forgery (that is, creation of a false instrument) itself is a separate crime and, in fact, a person may not be convicted of both forgery and criminal possession of a forged instrument with respect to the same forged item under Kentucky law. (Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 516.080.)

There are three degrees of the crime of possession of a forged instrument in Kentucky:

  • First degree: possession of forged money, stamps, other government-issued securities, corporate stocks, bonds, or other corporate instruments
  • Second degree: possession of forged deeds, wills, contracts, commercial instruments, credit cards, public records or documents required to be filed with a public agency, or official government documents, and
  • Third degree: possession of any other forged written instrument.

Also note that the state of Kentucky does allow for open carry IAW with the Constitution of the United States under the 2nd Amendment. Open carry does involve some issues where some people may panic when they see someone open carrying a weapon. This is called inducing panic even though you may not intend that. But if you do not have a CCDW permit and you are concealing a weapon (except for as stated above in section 9 a,b,c) you are breaking the law.

Civil War’s A-Brewin’ Matt Barber | Jan 14, 2013


A pretty, young, auburn-haired woman – mid-20s – drove down a lonely country road somewhere in Oklahoma. Appearing in her rearview mirror, at the back windshield, were two menacing orbs of light floating amid ashen dusk. The guttural roar of a souped-up big block shook the tiny Volkswagen Rabbit as a van-load of inbred thugs lurched left and drew alongside her. A ponytailed passenger taunted inaudibly and blew foul kisses between crude hand gestures. He pointed for her to pull over as the van repeatedly swerved dangerously close.

Inside the car a man, asleep in the reclining passenger seat, was startled awake by the commotion. He rose and darted his head about, calmly assessing the situation. This only spurred the evil-bent goons. As they ramped-up efforts to run the car off the road, the man reached in the glove box, withdrew a military-grade, semi-automatic handgun – an “assault weapon,” if you will – and, with intentionality and great theatre, leaned across his young bride, pointing the gun out the open bay and directly between dirt bag’s booze-flushed eyes.

Van vanished amid a plume of gray smoke as wheels locked, tires screeched and “assault vehicle” fishtailed – jerking to a halt with taillights aglow skyward from the ditch.

Not a shot was fired.

Back at the couple’s rural farmhouse, two boys – boys who would not be orphaned that night – played. We most likely played – my brother Pete and I – with assault rifles fashioned from sticks. I always love to hear Dad retell the story. He does it with an ornery, satisfied grin. “No one’s taking my guns,” he’ll say.

This might be a good time for me to add that no one’s taking my guns either. Period. And if Dianne Feinstein orders me from her lofty perch on the left-coast to retroactively register them with some federal autocracy, I think I might just forget I even have them. Tens of millions of law-abiding, God-fearing Americans just like me and Dad, I suspect, feel the same way.

I love guns. Grew up with ‘em. As a former police officer with 12 years in the U.S. military, I know how to use them, too – use them well. I plan to buy more – a bunch more. In fact, who’s to say I don’t already have a veritable arsenal?

Point is, tain’t Big Brother Barack’s nor any other candy-keistered-liberal-cream-puff’s bloody business whether I do or not.

See, the left’s totalitarian brand of “gun control” has nothing to do with controlling guns – or bad guys. Rather, it has everything to do with controlling – disarming – the law-abiding masses. It’s not about protecting the innocents. It’s about rendering the innocents defenseless.

Clichés become clichés for a reason, and the old cliché, “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” rings as true today as it did whenever it was that some homespun fellow coined it.

I was disgusted – physically sickened, in fact – when Barack Obama, president of these Divided States of America, shamelessly exploited the Sandy Hook memorial service to lay the groundwork for his unconstitutional gun-confiscation scheme. It was slimy to the extreme.

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. That’s what liberals do. Every time some evil nutjob – pumped full of psychotropic drugs by NEA members who don’t want to deal with them – shoots-up the place, the left’s collective mouth begins to water.

“Now, finally, now!” they say, rubbing together soft hands that have never felt the surprising weight of a Sig Sauer 45. “This time we have the political momentum for sweeping gun control. This time the American people will roll over and let us trample the Second Amendment beneath jackbooted executive order or congressional fiat.”

“Let no good crisis go to waste,” right, Rahm?

Well, not so fast, cupcake. As the U.S. Constitution guarantees – and as the Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed – “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

It ain’t, “should not be infringed,” or “shall finally be infringed once ‘progressives’ have assumed total dominance.”

No, “shall not” means shall not.

There’s only one way to take my guns, slick, and that’s through a constitutional amendment – an amendment that will never happen – ever. Try it any other way and we have a problem.

And this whole “assault weapons ban” angle? Sensationalist propaganda. I prefer to call them “defense weapons.” Contrary to left-wing revisionist pabulum, the Second Amendment’s not about squirrel hunting.

Notice a trend here? What do Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora Colorado’s Century 16 theatre and Columbine have in common? They’re all “gun free zones.”

Places you don’t see mass murder and mayhem? Well, there’s a reason bad guys largely avoid shooting-up gun shows, ranges, households with signs that say: “This home insured by Smith & Wesson” and Texas in general. It’s because they know – even while thick-skulled liberals don’t – that, as recently noted by the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

Oh, that rather than “gun free zone,” Sandy Hook had a sign reading: “Staff heavily armed and trained. Any attempts to harm those herein will be met with deadly force.” Might some of those beautiful babies have still died if the P.E. coach and four MP5-bearing teachers had ended the bloodshed soon after it began? Perhaps. But how many precious lives could have been saved?

No, you won’t disarm me. You’re not going to neuter my household and tear away my ability to defend my wife and precious babies like Dad did all those years ago.

I really, really hope this president and his authoritarian cohorts in Congress will slow down, take a deep breath and realize that, right now, they’re playing a very dangerous game of chicken. If they try what I think they might, but hope they don’t, I fear this nation – already on the precipice of widespread civil unrest and economic disaster – might finally spiral into to utter chaos, into a second civil war.

But then again, that may be exactly what they have in mind.

NRA-ILA | New Government Report Undercuts Obama Anti-Gun Agenda


Things haven’t been very good for President Obama lately. This week, Congress heard from witnesses concerning his administration’s fatal failures related to the September 11, 2012, attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Not buying into the make-believe nonsense that Obama has improved America’s standing among terrorists devoted to our destruction, jihadists recently attacked the Boston Marathon. The unemployment rate has decreased by only 0.4 percentage point since January………..Click below to read more

Outstanding Sting: FBI Busts NY Dem & Republican Councilman Trying to Rig Mayor’s Race | Independent Journal Review


Wow – I am totally shocked that anyone running for a political office would be dishonest or try to manipulate and outcome for any race for office. And I am really amazed that anyone that is black would EVER even consider doing anything wrong to get elected in the state of New York of Illinois or any other Democratic or Republican majority city or state. This story must be false and totally made up – ya think? (SCARCASM)
NOTE: This just goes to prove both sides have corruption.

Grant County Sheriff’s Office–Sheriff Chuck Dills


Grant County Sheriff

The above letter is from the Grant County Kentucky Sheriff’s Office, Chuck Dills and their stance on the 2nd Amendment. I personally applaud our Sheriff and his deputies for their hard work and their stance on this critical matter. I hope they are never put into the position where that are even asked to go against law abiding citizens right to bear arms. Knowing where they stand on this issue is a relief and I hope each of them the very best for them and their families. Thanks Sheriff Dills & Deputies.
