Progressives continuously try to delegitimize our federalist system and the rule of law by attacking the U.S. Constitution. You can go to YouTube and watch politicians laugh at the very notion of following the dictates they pledge allegiance to. Every year we can expect the Supreme Court to gather more power unto the federal government by bastardizing the 14th Amendment. Now we have a judge who has basically declared himself a demigod in a black robe.
Richard Posner, a member of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, wrote, “I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, [days], hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation.”
“Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc., of the 21st century,” he continued. “Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post–Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.”
“In short, let’s not let the dead bury the living,” Posner concluded.
Instead, let’s have living judges bury liberty, the rule of law and federalism. This man has no business on the bench. He should be impeached.
Have you noticed when liberals lose an election they claim the electorate are a bunch of uneducated toddlers throwing temper tantrums at the polls? They dismiss voters with a condescending attitude with remarks such as, the peasantry has voted against their own interest. When it comes right down to it, progressives whether foreign or domestic have a problem with democracy. What they want are unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats to run our lives without recourse, or due process which is what the European Union is all about.
Americans could easily conflate British complaints with our own very real problems in Washington D.C. We too have unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats running our country. We too have global elites mocking nation-states and our representative republic. These snobs are in government, big business, and in the media. Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post is a perfect example of this mentality. He recently wrote an op-ed parroting the standard globalists’ diatribe. Here is an excerpt:
I hope U.S. voters are paying attention. The Brexit solution is pure counterfeit but the underlying issues are real. In Britain as in this country, working-class incomes are stagnant, and immigration, to some, seems out of control. Globalization seems to benefit the well-off and well-educated at the expense of everyone else. The temptation is to take refuge in nationalism — forget the rest of the world, take care of our own, fend for ourselves. Build a wall.
That is Trump's message. But the gap between what he promises and what he can possibly deliver is even wider than in the Brexit example.
It is a cliche to say that we live in an interconnected world, but that is the truth. Globalization is a fact and cannot be repealed by referendum — or, for that matter, by slogans printed on baseball caps. Nor can technological progress be reversed by any amount of ranting and raving.
According to Eugene Robinson and his ilk, the nation-state is obsolete; democracy is obsolete. There is no such thing as a United States of America there is only an America and its going to have to join the world by forgoing sovereignty and embrace a borderless society which will be run by a priestly sect of bureaucrats and global businesses who know what’s best for you and the world because plebeians are too stupid to look out for their own self-interest.
Brexit is a repudiation of foreign, bureaucratic rule. Donald Trump’s success at the polls is a repudiation of global elitest rule. However, if there is one lesson to be learned from decades of progressivsm it is they don’t give up. National sovereignty is under attack and will be for the foreseeable future.

What’s that slimy, slithering sound I here? Why it’s former Treasury secretary and Goldman Sachs CEO, Hank Paulson crawling out under a rock and into Hillary Clinton’s camp! Why shouldn’t we be surprised by that? After all, it was he and his band of thieves that raided the taxpayer coffers during the financial turmoil in 2008.
How come this man and his mobster friends weren’t convicted on RICO charges? Paulson should be someone’s bitch in a jail cell. That’s because people like Hank Paulson don’t go to jail. They’re the financiers of other criminals like the Clintons, Obamas and other scoundrels who are in charge of our justice system. They are the cronies in our so-called capitalist system. They profit off of our losses.
Here is the reason Mr. Hank Paulson endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton:
When it comes to the presidency, I will not vote for Donald Trump. I will not cast a write-in vote. I’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton, with the hope that she can bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world.
Really? She is one of the most polarizing people in this country and he believes she will unite us? What a fool! Hillary may strengthen Paulson’s and his buddies’ economic situation, but she won’t for the American people. He continues:
We need to welcome rather than shrink from trade and economic competition. Trump calls our current trade deals “disgusting, the absolute worst ever negotiated by any country in the world.” This is simply false. According to the Peterson Institute for International Economics, the average American household income is roughly $10,000 higher because of the postwar expansion of trade. Because of trade, we add jobs and foster innovation and competitiveness. That doesn’t mean that people aren’t losing jobs and suffering in certain industries. However, it is wrong to tell the American people that we can turn back the clock and win, with merely 4 percent of the world’s population, by walling ourselves off from the remaining 7 billion people and the markets they represent. Instead, we need to fix the programs that help U.S. industries and workers transition to new and better jobs. We need better training, new education programs and a more robust safety net. The policies Trump endorses would destroy, not save, U.S. jobs.
The majority of those 7 billion people live in a third-world shithole. What do they provide besides cheap labor that connected fat cats like Hank Paulson can exploit? How about providing conditions that would attract manufacturing to the United States such as deregulation and an abolishment of punitive taxes? Has anybody thought about that?
Just to remind people of what a crook Hank Paulson and his cronies are, here is an excerpt from Reckless Endangerment: How Outsized Ambition, Greed, and Corruption Led to Economic Armageddon.
In 2001, however, Fannie took its accounting chicanery to new heights, or lows, depending upon your perspective. And it did it with the help of its favorite investment bank, Goldman Sachs.
Goldman had long had strong ties to Fannie Mae. Stephen Friedman, chairman of Goldman Sachs from 1992 to 1994, had been director of Fannie Mae since 1996. In 2001, Friedman sat on Fannie’s Compensation Committee and its Nominations and Corporate Governance Committee. Both areas were seriously compromised by the me-first attitude at the top of Fannie Mae.
Indeed, while Friedman was on Fannie’s board, federal investigators said directors improperly allowed the company’s executives to set earnings targets they were sure to meet. “As a direct result, senior management reaped ongoing and extensive financial rewards through accounting manipulation,” the investigators wrote the OFHEO report concluded.
In 1999, Goldman had returned the favor of a directorship by offering a seat on its prestigious board to Jim Johnson. It was a classic example of the “I’ll –scratch-your-back, you-scratch-mine” mentality among corporate boards. The year Johnson became director at Goldman, Henry M. Paulson Jr., the man who would oversee the taxpayer bailout of Fannie Mae as Treasury secretary in 2008 took the helm at the investment bank.
Because Goldman did not have a nomination committee at the time, Johnson’s appointment to its board was a decision made at the highest levels of the firm. Johnson immediately received the plum board assignment of chairing the firm’s compensation committee. This meant that Johnson, in addition to his other board duties, would be in charge of dispensing some of the richest payouts on Wall Street.
Crooks! Every damn one of them and they are still walking the streets to this day!
Britons showed incredible courage by voting to get out of the European Union. They have demonstrated a fundamental truth that people want control of their destiny which can only be accomplished through self-governance. Nameless, faceless bureaucrats in a foreign capital dictating policy is the antithesis of freedom. You might as well be a slave.
Politicians find it much easier to schlep their responsibilities onto government bureaucrats. They can have a pencil pusher rubberstamp their ill-conceived agenda without having to face an irate citizenry. It’s the perfect foil for unscrupulous characters whose main job is to get reelected. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher knew what was going on when she called out the Labor Party as demonstrated in the video below.
We in the United States have a similar problem despite what foolish libtards say. The Constitution of the United States grants legislative authority only to Congress. But that body has abrogated its responsibilities to unelected and unaccountable federal bureaucrats. What is happening in Washington D.C. is a flagrant violation of our social compact. We are being ruled by an unscrupulous president and his infestation of progressive minions. Is it any wonder Democrats laugh when we cite the Constitution?
I think all the #texit stuff is largely tongue-in-cheek and the situations aren't AT ALL analogous BUT: what would the vote be?
4:14 PM - 24 Jun 2016
As of now, Texans are grumbling for secession and who can blame them? We’re citizens not subjects. You can bet Washington D.C. sees us as the latter.

Meet an EU idiot. Beverly, like most of her slavish generation, would rather have nameless, faceless, foreign bureaucrats run her life than take responsibility for self-governance. Liberty, after all, is for fascists.
According to Beverly, it was Britons over 75 years of age who voted for Brexit. She would have us believe that 52% of the population is septuagenarians? Notice the complete lack of respect she has for her elders and the wisdom they’ve procured over the years. But what do they know? They’re not Beverly.
Notice she blames Brexit on racism. Pardon me, but what race is Islam? I’ve got news for you, Islam is not a race; it’s a political ideology in the guise of a religion.
I can’t help but laugh at Beverly’s misery. She, after all, called Americans
a bunch of haters. But if she truly wants to be a citizen of the European Union, she can always move. However, this progressive utopia may not last much longer.
a bunch of haters. But if she truly wants to be a citizen of the European Union, she can always move. However, this progressive utopia may not last much longer.
Our first Muslim president, Barack Hussein Obama, has found ways to undermine the American creed by flooding this country with Islamic hordes. He has assured the Western Caliphate that these new immigrants will not have to pledge allegiance to the United States, nor are they obligated to defend her. Their allegiance is to an Islamic State as the Muslim in the White House knows all too well.
Breitbart Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service.
The pledge to help defend America was good enough for the 6.6 million immigrants naturalized since 2005 and good enough for the over 15 million naturalized since 1980, but Obama’s appointees at the USCIS think that is too much to ask of the 18.7 million estimated legal immigrants eligible today for eventual naturalization or the 750,000 who will be naturalized in the coming year.
This radical change was announced a year ago, in July of 2015. Congress did not enact the change in new legislation. There was no congressional debate, no filibuster in the US Senate, and no sit-in in the House to demand that a bill to repeal the USCIS action be brought to a vote.
We have been infiltrated at the highest levels of the federal government.
Democrats have no compunction attacking American citizens’ Second Amendment rights; however, they seem to be quite at ease arming federal government bureaucrats. The Washington Free Beacon reported the following:
There are now more non-military government employees who carry guns than there are U.S. Marines, according to a new report.
Open the Books, a taxpayer watchdog group, released a study Wednesday that finds domestic government agencies continue to grow their stockpiles of military-style weapons, as Democrats sat on the House floor calling for more restrictions on what guns American citizens can buy.
The Department of Health and Human Services has armed agents who’re trained in warfare? Has Obamacare been weaponized? Exactly, who’s the enemy here?
If you disagree with a liberal, you’re an uneducated bigot. Rich Lowry called out this snob at around 6:24. And have you noticed we always vote against our own interest? What would a beltway puke know about my interest?

Ghouls never let an opportunity go to waste. How many times have we seen gun grabbers use horrible killings to advance their agenda? Recently, Democrats staged a sit-in on the House floor as a means to take away our God given rights to defend ourselves from predators while they live and work in a taxpayer funded fortress. I guess some people are more equal than others.
They contend people identified as terrorist shouldn’t own guns. Well, let’s take a look at who progressives define as terrorists. The Obama administration has identified anyone who believes in the Constitution of the United States as a threat to the public weal. Tea Partiers have been specifically targeted as public enemy #1.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, a participant of this publicity stunt, directed the full force of the federal government on a Texas woman who dared to found a watchdog organization. Is Catherine Engelbrecht a terrorist? According to the esteemed Mr. Cummings, she most certainly is a threat.
How about that suspect organization called The Southern Poverty Law Center? They listed Dr. Ben Carson on their extremists list simply because he believes in traditional marriage. I believe it’s safe to say anyone who disagrees with progressives is to be considered a terrorist for that’s how they treat us.
Must we remind these totalitarians the true intent of the Second Amendment? Chances are they already know and that’s why they want to take our guns away from us.
The world’s master planners are in a panic after Britons voted to liberate themselves from nameless, faceless bureaucrats in a distant, foreign capital. So-called leaders of the free world are aghast that plebeians raised their pitchforks and torches and stormed to the polls demanding their sovereignty back. Who in the hell do these people think they are? Well if you’re a bumbling boob like Joe Biden, this is nothing more than a temper tantrum. Here is what an ugly globalist had to say about Brexit.
"We preferred a different outcome. And I imagine many of you here felt the same way," Biden said at Trinity College in Dublin." I want to assure all of you in this room that America’s special bond with the United Kingdom runs deep, and it will endure. And our relationship with Ireland and the European Union will remain the cornerstone of our global engagement."
Later Friday, VP Joe Biden sharpened his blades a bit and began hacking away at Brexit voters, calling them racists, bigots, xenophobes -- the usual suspects.
"We see it in Europe and around the world," Biden said. "And we see it today in the United States, where some politicians find it convenient to scapegoat immigrants instead of welcoming them, play to our fears rather than appeal to our better natures, divide us based on religion or ethnicity rather than unite us in our common humanity, and build walls between nations when we should be building bridges among us."
"In the face of rising xenophobia, we must remember the dreams of our ancestors who left everything to board ships that for many became coffins. Or how many great-grandparents, and grandparents made it, but were turned away from a job and decent life."
We have a vice president of the United States lecturing people on nationalism? Does he realize he’s a representative of a nation-state? Is he completely clueless that borders, language and culture define a nation?
Joe Biden is obviously a lapdog for the globalist and has no business representing the interest of the American people. As a matter of fact, Americans should contemplate their own exit strategy from Washington D.C.

What should an appropriate response be to a democrat who abuses her office? This is what Alex Epstein, author of “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels” and founder of a think tank wrote to Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey’s subpoena:
Yeah, that sounds about right.
Democratic attorney generals are using their office to bully global warming skeptics. A coalition of thugs have threatened to use their office as a means to shut up businesses, think tanks and others for having the audacity to question an industry infested with green energy scam artists. But that knife cuts both ways. Here is an excerpt from the Washington Times:
The “cuts both ways” argument was among those raised by 13 Republican attorneys general in a letter urging their Democratic counterparts to stop using their law enforcement power against fossil fuel companies and others that challenge the climate change catastrophe narrative.
“If it is possible to minimize the risks of climate change, then the same goes for exaggeration,” said the letter. “If minimization is fraud, exaggeration is fraud.”
So let it be written, so let be done. We can start with Al Gore and work our way through the government grant schemers who’ve defrauded the American taxpayers with bogus studies and then we can go after the international scammers at the United Nations.
I say bring it on!
Liberals are completely disconnected from reality. They just don’t seem to comprehend basic truths. Failed social experiments such as Venezuela don’t faze them. Violent protesters waving Mexican flags at political rallies don’t give them pause when it comes to porous borders. And according to our so-called president, Islamic mass murderers are victims of an American gun culture. It really is unbelievable.
Last week the Charlotte Observer published an editorial praising the Obama administrations illegal dumping of Syrian refugees in our backyard. As usual, we get the sob stories of how these Muslim families have been persecuted by their fellow Muslims and that these poor innocents are just seeking safety. Well, what about our safety?
The Orlando mass murderer was a product of Afghan refugees. The San Bernardino killer was the son of Pakistani immigrants as were a host of other Islamic killers that have spilled innocent American blood. But somehow that doesn’t seem to register with liberals.
The Obama administration is importing hundreds of thousands of Islamists into the United States. Here is an excerpt from Breitbart.com:
Between FY 2013 and FY 2014, the number of green cards issued to migrants from Muslim-majority countries increased dramatically – from 117,423 in FY 2013, to 148,810 in FY 2014, a nearly 27 percent increase. Throughout the Obama Administration’s tenure, the United States has issued green cards to an average of 138,669 migrants from Muslim-majority countries per year, meaning that it is nearly certain the United States will have issued green cards to at least 1.1 million migrants from Muslim-majority countries on the President’s watch. It has also been reported that migration from Muslim-majority countries represents the fastest growing class of migrants.
Most Islamic killers are second generation men with an identity crisis. Who’s going to protect Americans from a people who have nothing but contempt for our culture and way of life? Where is our safe haven?
Welcome to Liberal World! It’s a magical place where actions have no consequences and everything is free…for liberals that is. In Liberal World, Obamatons are programmed to instinctively blame others for problems they foist upon themselves and others. It’s a place where civil liberties violate “safe spaces” and inanimate objects are the cause for violate acts.
Our tour begins in the Hall of Special Snowflakes. You’ll be amazed at the automatons who believe they’re entitled to your paycheck and property. You’ll be accosted by Cheeto stained college students for “free tuition”; Marxist college professors lecturing for a utopian society; progressive politicians and media pundits accusing you of being a bigot, xenophobic and a climate denier, but most of all you’ll be attacked for being an American. And if you think that’s harrowing, wait until you run the “White Privilege” gauntlet. Words cannot describe the stupidity you’ll encounter there.
Next you’ll hop on a little, yellow bus that will take you to that special “religion” called Islam. You’ll be greeted by President Barack Obama and the call to prayers. Listen to him lecture you on “our common values” as a conveyor belt of knife wielding Muslim refugees scream, “Allah Akbar” as they collect welfare benefits and demand halal meals and special accommodations so they can pray to their moon god.
Look out! That gun just jumped off a table and started shooting people. Somebody had better disarm American citizens before legions of guns jump into Muslim hands and start killing innocent civilians. Wow! Anything can happen in Liberal World.
If you survive the Islamic Cultural Enrichment Center, you’ll be shackled and perp walked to the Central Planners Bizarre. You’ll be harried by federal government bureaucrats who want to run your life. Notice the Lois Lerner smirk on their faces and the condescending attitude which is the hallmark of liberalism. Notice the haughty laugh when asked “Is this America?”
And finally Liberal World ends with a tour of the Democratic Party Headquarters, a place where the Mad Hatter meets the United Nations. Here is where all the automatons receive their marching orders. Notice the map on the wall, the United States has no borders, and nonsensical, platitudes are spoken in multiple languages. Look around. You’ll notice the rule of law has been replaced by a ruler and the U.S. Constitution has been consigned to a roll in a transgender bathroom. If this reminds you of a third-world hellhole, that’s because it is! Congratulations, you just won our teat squawkers gift basket, now you can go stand in that Venezuelan-esque line.
I hoped you enjoyed your visit to Liberal World, a place where the right kind of diversity is preapproved and liberty is nonexistent.
Notice: Liberal World is franchising their special kind of governing principles in a neighborhood near you. Contact your local Democratic Party for details.
