PRESS RELEASE: Purpura v. Christie, et. al. Pending Before SCOTUS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
##########

10 October 2017

Second Amendment Case Impacting Federalism at the United States Supreme Court

Chaplain and constitutional expert Nicholas Purpura has dedicated many months to bringing forward a lawsuit which now is waiting on the SCOTUS to decide whether or not to grant a writ of certiorari. This case, Purpura v. Christie, et. al., docket number 17-280, has potential to restore much more than just the right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The threshold question is whether or not “Federalism” is being violated. The suit is capable of restoring every citizen's gun rights in all 50 states. The Court will decide by Oct. 27 whether or not to hear the case.

In the petition, Purpura makes a three-pronged argument. First, he demonstrates a violation of the 9th Amendment protecting federalism:

  1. "The threshold matter before this court represents more than a single individual’s right to bear arms. It goes straight to the heart and viability of federalism."
  2. "The ability to self-protect is not a privilege which can be offhandedly granted or denied by any state."
  3. This Petition draws into question the constitutionality of the state of New Jersey’s statutory scheme of arbitrarily & capriciously converting a civil right into a privilege...[which] must not be permitted to prevail." 

With this, Purpura proves that all administrative laws and restrictions must be ruled “null and void” if not instituted by Congress, because they are in violation of the 9th Amendment which protects “federalism”. The case further cites two recent Supreme Court cases: 2008, Bond v. United States, 09-1127; and 2015, Department of Transportation et al, v. Assoc. of American RR. No. 13-1080, which unanimously stated that unconstitutional administrative law “is no law at all”.

Second, Purpura makes a civil RICO case on the basis of "...a pattern of activity that demonstrated ongoing violations of civil liberties and numerous incidents of injury-in-fact..." and "...documents were submitted as evidence to demonstrate multiple ongoing violations by the enterprise [defendants] in their scheme to further deny citizens their rights as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution."

Third, Purpura states that the issue is stare decisis; in other words it has already been adjudicated, and Purpura cites copious precedents and references.

This case represents an unprecedented opportunity to strike not only unconstitutional limitations to the Second Amendment, but also to provide a decision reinstating federalism and the rule of constitutional law.

Second Amendment Case Impacting Federalism at the United States Supreme Court

The Situation: Chaplain and constitutional expert Nicholas Purpura has dedicated many months to bringing forward a lawsuit which now is waiting on the SCOTUS to decide whether or not to grant a writ of certiorari. This case, Purpura v. Christie, et. al., docket number 17-280, has potential to restore much more than just the right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution. 

Call to Action: What stands in our way presently is lack of publicity to encourage the Court to take up this case. Should the Court receive public pressure to hear the case, they may be more likely to do so. Anyone can write to the Court to let them know that this case is important. I urge you to do so today, since the Court will decide by Oct. 27 whether or not to hear the case. After reading this information, please print the letter at this link, date and sign it, and mail it to the Supreme Court at the address shown on the letter. 

Background. The news blog The Post and E-Mail has written a detailed three-part series about this lawsuit, to which the reader may wish to refer for a full background and detailed analysis.



The nut of the case is:
"...whether it is permissible for any branch of government deviate from, alter, or exceed the powers granted under the ARTICLES AND AMENDMENTS of the U. S. CONSTITUTION.
The State of New Jersey assumes and incorporates a restricted unconstitutional position concerning the right to bear arms. One which imposes the illegal requirement of ‘justifiable need’. Within this system there exists no constitutional right as defined in the Second Amendment. 
This confers the issuance of a carry permit on the whim of Police Chiefs and/or Superior Court judges who determine individual rights based upon their own personal ideological dictates. The threshold question is whether or not “Federalism” is being violated?..."  (emphasis mine) 
The suit is capable of restoring every citizen's gun rights in all 50 states.

In the petition, Purpura writes:
"The threshold matter before this court represents more than a single individual’s right to bear arms. It goes straight to the heart and viability of federalism."
"The ability to self-protect is not a privilege which can be offhandedly granted or denied by any state. It is an inalienable right guaranteed by the Second Amendment...This Petition draws into question the constitutionality of the state of New Jersey’s statutory scheme of arbitrarily & capriciously converting a civil right into a privilege...The conversion of an inalienable right into a privilege by the state of New Jersey must not be permitted to prevail." 
With this, Purpura proves that all administrative laws and restrictions must be ruled “null and void” if not instituted by Congress, because they are in violation of the 9th Amendment which protects “federalism”. The case further cites two recent Supreme Court cases: 2008, Bond v. United States, 09-1127; and 2015, Department of Transportation et al, v. Assoc. of American RR. No. 13-1080, which unanimously stated that unconstitutional administrative law “is no law at all”.

Second, Purpura makes a civil RICO case on the basis of "...a pattern of activity that demonstrated ongoing violations of civil liberties and numerous incidents of injury-in-fact..." and "...documents were submitted as evidence to demonstrate multiple ongoing violations by the enterprise [defendants] in their scheme to further deny citizens their rights as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution."

Third, the case states that the issue is stare decisis; in other words it has already been adjudicated, and Purpura cites copious precedents and references.

This is an unprecedented opportunity to strike not only unconstitutional limitations to the Second Amendment, but also to provide a decision reinstating federalism and the rule of constitutional law over administrative law. Please print this letter and send it to the Supreme Court at the address given in the letter today so the Court receives your letter before their decision October 27.

To the Honorable Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States:

I respectfully request that you expedite and hear Docket No. 17-280, Purpura v. Christie, et. al. The restoration our inalienable civil rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment depend on this case.

Campaign Season

October 14, 2017

The November campaign season is upon us, at its peak now, as it is every year. That, and a new video project, are keeping me from this blog. I have an active role in a campaign with actual responsibilities. And responsibilities promoting a video project for a new group dedicated to free speech. More on that later though, after the election.

As a reminder, vote for the candidates which have shown an understanding for how constitutionally-limited government should work, and who view we the people as the rightful repository of power in this Republic, If you don't have any such candidates, perhaps you should run next time.  < grin >

For the time being I am limited to occasional posts. See you soon and God bless.

NFL Flameout - The Hay Is In The Barn

When the plane is hurtling to the ground without power at 400 mph, you can either pop the chute and pray you survive, or you can go down with the plane. If you're really stupid, you set fire to the interior because you're mad about the situation.

The NFL is doing the latter.

A survey just conducted shows that the vast majority of Americans think that athletes should stand during the anthem.
Q7: Last week, Donald Trump said NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem. Do you think NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem?
  • Yes: 64%
  • No: 25%
  • Unsure: 11%
Q8: On Sunday, a number of NFL players knelt during the national anthem in protest of Donald Trump’s statements, including players from your favorite team. Does this make you more likely or less likely to watch your favorite team’s games in the future?
  • More likely: 30%
  • Less likely: 50%
  • No difference: 20%
These results are devastating for the NFL and show that NFL owners and management are reacting in exactly the wrong way. At this rate, in five years the NFL will be playing on public soccer fields with only iPhone livestream coverage.

Unable to stop themselves from criticizing President Trump, and in the face of overwhelming public sentiment against them, wrong-thinking RINOs weighed in against the President.This is a serious mistake, akin to setting the cockpit on fire and going down with the plane, instead of popping the emergency door and parachuting down.

The grassroots base already doesn't like the GOP establishment, equating it with the "swamp". Today, the base absolutely humiliated the GOP establishment in Alabama. Also, swamp monster Bob Corker surrendered, with a primary challenger already in the race against him at home. These are harbingers of the upcoming 2018 storm of grassroots upsetting establishment candidates. While the tone-deaf GOP establishment virtue-signals "solidarity" with America-hating professional athletes, the base is moving ahead throwing them out so the Trump agenda can move forward.

As former Auburn University coach Pat Dye used to say, "The hay is in the barn. Now it is time to play the game."


Judge Roy Moore faces off next against the Democrat in the general election.

Bizarro World: It's Illegal For Florida Solar Homes To Produce Energy During Power Outages

From my friend Jack C., who has so many news sources and is always looking for the important stories not carried in the MSM. So-called "renewable" energy (solar, wind, water) are tightly controlled under UN Agenda 21/2030. That is because if a person has independent power, they are independent of the control structures, and Agenda 21 is all about control. 


These panels easily could have been installed with a switch to take them off the grid in a power outage. That would have made sense. Then the homeowner could have power. But the setup today is little more than collector-sites which are owned by the government - they are using your roof - and that are controlled by the power company. 
Beware offers of "free" solar panels and "free" installation and "tax credits"! This is your tip-off that your home will be controlled by the power company and owned the government. 




In recent years, as the technology becomes cheaper and more prevalent, an increasing number of people are installing solar panels on their homes in an effort to produce their own renewable energy at a fraction of the cost from their local energy provider.
Unfortunately for Florida residents, especially those who found themselves without power following Hurricane Irma, a law brought about by power company lobbying and big government control freaks prohibits Floridians equipped with solar panels from using them independently of their local energy provider, according to a scathing report by the Miami New Times

The Miami New Times noted that Floridians are required by law to connect their solar panel-powered homes to the standard electrical grid, and pointed to a section of FPL’s guidelines on “clean energy” that mandate solar power systems be powered down along with the rest of the grid during an outage

Incredibly, even as solar customers are required to install a special disconnect switch that removes their panels from the grid while keeping the rest of the home attached, they are prohibited from independently flipping that switch to power their homes while the grid is down.

However, FPL reserves the right to come and disconnect those panels at anytime they see fit, even placing a padlock on it if necessary, without any warning ahead of time to customers.
That, along with several other hoops prospective solar panel owners must jump through, creates an incredible disincentive to consumers and essentially prohibits them from being self-reliant in terms of energy, which is kind of the main idea behind installing solar panels on a home in the first place.
Furthermore, FPL is thought to be heading up lobbying efforts to do away with the “net-metering” provision that allows solar customers to “sell” excess energy their panels have produced back to the power company, which would remove the sole remaining incentive for Floridians to undertake the expense of installing solar panels.

#NFLBoycott Fallout - An Update

A lot going on with the #NFLboycott so it's worth an update even though I've posted earlier today.

People are burning their player number jerseys and fan merchandise. We the people are angry.

This is making the rounds:
No automatic alt text available.

Another version of the "No Fans Left" meme contains a subtitle, "Burn It All!" (we the people are VERY angry.)

Part of the fans' anger likely stems from the fact that these players are able to perform their profession in large coliseums and stadiums built in no small part with taxpayer dollars (including taxpayer-funded bonds). From George H. Rodriguez, "El Conservador", a Texas conservative activist:
You read that right: For that large investment, the host cities see little to no economic stimulation. That is an 800-pound gorilla. The local fans, who also are taxpayers, don't want to be told their country, and themselves by extension, are racist or oppressive or support a murderous regime.... Especially not by wealthy, privileged athletes, inside a top-notch facility paid for by the taxpayer-fan.


Part of the anger also may stem from the utter hypocrisy of the NFL on the topic of free speech.
These "anthem protests" are supported by the NFL as "free speech". Where was this libertarian view of speech when:
Tim Tebow was considered "controversial" because he prayed?
Players wanted to honor murdered cops?
Players wanted to honor the victims of 9/11?
It goes on. This selective application of "free speech" makes it a very weak justification.

And then there's this database - which may suggest why so many NFL players are hostile to the police. For those players who have not been arrested: Are they still considered oppressed? #justasking

However, not all sports teams, athletes, and owners are crazy these days. 


NASCAR owners say that drivers and crew will be respectful during the anthem.   Fortunately, NASCAR drivers and crew, as well as invited celebrities, already seem to be fairly well disposed to behave appropriately during the anthem.

The Stanley Cup winner Pittsburg Penguins team is OK with visiting the White House - even after President Trump's comments critical of NFL anthem protesting players. Go Pens!

While college ball and pro ball are two different sports with different fans and drivers, you really can't ignore the implications for the NFL when observing the Fukushima-level disaster at the University of Missouri following the race riots there. Politics mixed with athletics there, and the result was total meltdown of the once-proud Mizzou Tiger football program. I recall Faurot Field, and my beloved OU Sooners playing various iterations of the Missouri Tigers years ago in the Big 8. As it turns out, race riots and football team walkout protests are not good advertising for athletic scholarship programs. Freshman enrollment has dropped 35% over the last 2 years. No parent wants their child to go to a school where either racists run wild, or protesters run wild, or maybe both!

This gentleman explains it well. If you are going to talk about the negative things then you have to admit the positive things. On balance there are a lot more positives.

Athletes who believe they are "oppressed" in some ill-defined way, or want to express a nebulous "solidarity" with some group, should instead start working on helping to fix the negative things. Like 50% black youth unemployment. Like boys with no father figure. Like children who need to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. Yes, there are problems, but the anthem isn't responsible for it and the most helpful way to resolve problems in the community would come from these same "protesters" actually putting their money and efforts into personally addressing the problems instead of "taking a knee".

More Blowback On The NFL Regarding Anthem Disrespect

Looks like "taking a knee" has become the new way for people to identify themselves as anti-American and anti-cop. Entire teams are now "taking a knee" or, as in the case of the Steelers (a team which used to embody American values) staying in the locker room for the anthem entirely.

Shout-out to American hero Alejandro Villanueva, who refused to be bullied into disrespecting the flag and his country. He did not join the team in the locker room, and stood to salute the flag. For which his coach criticized him. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is now questioning openly if they did the right thing by staying in the locker room. Ben, if you have to ask that question, you've had one hit too many already. 

A friend who writes for a conservative blog was kind enough to republish my letter to NFL Commissioner Goodell. He added a bit of flair: a couple of graphics and font emphasis added to amplify my message.  Another blog also has reposted my letter. I wrote it from the heart fairly quickly, not anticipating it would be paid much mind by anyone. But apparently my feelings resonate with many (if my Facebook feed is any indication).


These so-called "protesting" players are pointing out a problem? Seriously? They are pointing out the wrong problem. Here are the facts on what they should be addressing productively within the affected communities.

So, do "black lives" really matter to these people? Or are they just virtue-signaling and seeking attention? Note that this graphic doesn't even begin to include the 17 million black lives which have been ended on the abortionist's table since 1973 in this country - a true "black genocide". But you will hear nothing about that. With apologies to Obi Wan Kenobe, those are not the black lives you're looking for.

Anyone who disrespects the flag disrespects the country and her citizens, and by proxy our military who defend her and our police who put their lives on the line for us keeping the peace every day. Cooler heads have always called for respect for the police and acknowledging that "All Lives Matter" (which they do.)

Here is why you always should stand and salute our flag:


Someone died so these sports professionals could live in a free society where it's possible to play football for millions of dollars after receiving a full college scholarship.

When I was a child, there was a certain famous sports commentator whose "tell it like it is" opinions famously put him frequently at odds with large, vociferous fan bases. I remember when this commentator said there was no way my favorite college team, the University of Oklahoma Sooners, would win the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans against Auburn that year. I did not come from a cursing family at all, but the new phrase in our home for weeks was, "Go To Hell, Cosell". If you don't recall Howard Cosell, you missed a lot of sports history. And bad toupees. But I digress.

Anyway, OU won against Auburn. I was there in the Sugar Bowl to see it.  Oh, well, poor Howard Cosell. OU Sooner Football fandom maintained its honor that day.

This week, perhaps another phrase is catching on with former NFL franchise fans and Americans everywhere disgusted with these hypocrites.... Go to hell, Goodell.

My Letter to NFL Commissioner Goodell About Players' Anthem Protests

Dear Commissioner, 

I agree fully with the sentiments expressed below. The people of this country do not support these childish portrayals on the field. The American flag stands for freedom and liberty. I will not support any organization (or its advertisers) who disrespect it. Therefore, I am now focusing my activism to encourage more people to boycott the NFL teams and their advertisers which allow and support the kneeling during the anthem - or any disrespect of the flag or our nation. 

I also support boycotting the sponsors who place advertisements during these games. I am sure you are aware of the precipitous drop in NFL attendance and TV viewing this year. Most of the people polled on this topic who are staying away blame the anthem disrespect as the reason they are not attending or watching. It is only going to get worse for you and the league, because the NFL failed to take a stand against this when it first started two years ago and people are sick of it. 

I grew up with the NFL - the Cowboys, the Bears, the Saints. I have many wonderful memories of Staubach, Ditka, Archie Manning, and many others. It is a terrible shame that the league I used to love has devolved to where it is now. The very country and people who supported this league and grew it into greatness over the decades are now being disrespected. It is evident that the NFL leadership and players wish to commit economic suicide. 

The kneeling players are on contract with their  teams, and the contracts include limits on behaviors as well as explicit rules of conduct. By now, these contracts should all contain clauses prohibiting any show of disrespect for the anthem, flag, or making political statements during a game. It should be self-evident that showing disrespect to this country and the very people in the stands paying these players' and coaches' salaries qualifies as unacceptable behavior. 

I understand that all the players in the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars knelt during the national anthem in London yesterday. Do you think the average American supports this behavior? No. It is a travesty and insults us all. This behavior will continue to alienate viewers and former ticket-holders. The cognitive dissonance is astounding. Many of these players are millionaires because of the greatness of opportunity in this country. They were so oppressed they received full scholarships to college, and hundreds of thousands if not millions in guaranteed payouts to play a sport. If that is "oppression", then I wish I had been so "oppressed". 

The trope that they are expressing some "solidarity" with those who are "oppressed" is a falsehood. If these players really wanted to express solidarity, they would engage with their communities directly and help support at-risk families. They would help train idle young men in skills for jobs. They would volunteer to coach Pop Warner leagues. Instead, they take the easy way out by virtue-signaling in front of people who paid to see a football game. They poke America in the eye. 

We just decided not to accept this childish behavior anymore. 

I would challenge these same kneeling players to leave the United States if they feel so oppressed. If they find the culture so racist. I would challenge them to live under a real oppressive regime which  limits their speech; where the very act of disrespect they force upon viewers now would result instead in their incarceration. 

This is a wonderful country in which liberty and justice for all is a great virtue, as well as the law of the land. The NFL used to be a great league. Now I have only contempt for what it's become. Look what you've reaped, Commissioner, because this is what you have sown.

Dear Commissioner,
During these two past seasons, my disappointment has grown boundlessly. This disgruntlement resides not just in the NFL leadership and the players who disgrace our country and our flag, but also in those idiots who stand while caressing the shoulders of the racists pretending to despise racism.  As of the commencement of this ugliness I have turned off any game where the network chose to put these haters on the screen.  I have found other things to do during most of the non-NYG games, not in protest but because I am, quite honestly, sick of the political BS which has begun to proliferate the sports media.
This may come as a surprise to you, but a very large percentage of sports fans turn to sports in order to escape from not just the ills of the world but also from his or her daily toils of work and raising their families.  They do not want to see a bunch of multi-millionaire, trouble making crybabies, interfering with their much needed escapism.
As a long time, decades upon decades, Giants fan I have very rarely missed even one play from scrimmage.  And as  a diehard Big Blue Giants’ fan I have ignored, for the Giants games only, those disrespecting my country.  NOT ANYMORE. As of this week, that has changed.  I know for sure that the Eagles team (Giants’ opponents this weekend) has several players who will endeavor to crap on my country today.   If the network chooses to show them or in any way give them notoriety, my TV will immediately be switched to the Fed-Ex Cup golf playoffs. This is not a threat. It is reality.   
It contrasts sanity to see that you hypocrites take it as an insult to the NFL when a self-centered player does an end zone cucaracha after scoring a touchdown and then you choose to look the other way when our country, our flag and the millions of men and women who died for America’s freedom are disrespected.  This includes the real men in blue, our police.  How does that make any sense? You Sir, had better wake up to the danger you and your un-American policies are doing to a once exciting game.  I am disgusted with the lot of you

4chan, /pol/ and Hackers Are Turning Against SJWs In The Culture Wars

My money is on 4chan, the hackers, and /pol/.

Briefly, 4chan is an online community - a message board - dating back to 2003,  used for social interaction such as sharing images and messages. 4chan is still very strong despite the rise of other social media. More on why later. It's divided into subsections which use the old DOS-style directory marker: the front slash, or "/". If you inhabited the bulletin board systems of the 1980s and '90s this will look familiar to you. /pol/ is a subsection of 4chan for "politically incorrect".



So why does 4chan and /pol/ remain strong for free speech? It  hasn't been taken over by the regimented, scolding social justice warriors like other social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter etc.). In fact, the users of 4chan appear for the most part to be full-throated defenders of freedom who seem to want to keep this a bastion of uncontrolled political incorrectness.  What a great thing!

Tim Pool, a YouTuber who provides commentary and news on current topics, muses in a recent vlog about the shift in politics in the hacker community. In his video, Tim observes that he sees the hacker community turning away from the raging regressive SJW left. Most of the gaming community has, too, and is fighting SJW content insertion tooth and nail - see GamerGate. (start at 6:56 to bypass Quinn's speech. F-bomb warning.)  GamerGate, in fact, has been credited with coining the term "social  justice warrior".

The struggles of these two communities doesn't reflect a "left vs. right" paradigm, but more an "authoritarian vs. libertarian" one. After listening to Tim's commentary - which is worthwhile; he is not a hard-liner for any side of the political spectrum - be sure to read the comments. Understand that many of his commenters are under the age of 21 - the mysterious Gen Z.

"But Firesign," you might say, "these 4chan and /pol/ denizens are all hackers and left-wing, aren't they? These are the Anonymous hackers?"

No. That's not entirely correct. While it can be argued that Anonymous originated from 4chan inhabitants, it is not correct to equate the two. However, both Anonymous and the larger 4chan user group exhibit strong anti-SJW actions. In fact, a trend has started in what I call the "dank web."

  • "Dank web" is my term for the users of the un-indexed part of the internet populated by younger people largely outside of the fluffy "GUI" social media platforms, and also outside of the criminal elements of the truly "dark web". This is where 4chan and private boards live. 
  • What is "dank": see here on reddit.  

Social justice is seen as oppression, rigidity, boring, unfunny; and these mostly young men, engaging in normal hijinks and one-upsmanship, are chafing against the scolding, social restrictions and policing of speech which SJWs enforce. They rebel and find themselves moving to the right because that is where they are free to express themselves, have fun and be as politically incorrect as they wish.

And they are as politically incorrect as young people with virtually no restrictions under the veil of anonymity can be.

The result of this gamer/hacker backlash against SJWs is a high-tech war using sleuthing techniques worthy of the CIA, humor and truth bombs via meme, and cultural separation from the regressive left. (example: The Kekistani movement)

Many have openly supported Trump, although they don't support most other establishment politicians (wake up there, GOP! Gen Z is not your fan.)


This situation should deeply worry the regressive left,  because it provides a marvelous, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for conservatives, classical liberals and libertarians to reach out and join with Gen Z and anti-SJW gamers. Gen Z is not about following a leader and they are quite conservative politically - also known as "red-pilled" (from the movie The Matrix). This is a marvelous thing. These are qualities that their older siblings and parents in the millennial group lack. These are qualities which will help them resist the regressive left that captured most of our twenty- and thirtysomethings.

But don't take my word for it. Read what they are saying themselves.
Oh, and they love Milo and Paul Joseph Watson.
Suddenly the future looks much rosier.

A slight foray into my background might help provide context for my interest in this subject. I've been a computer professional most of my adult life, going pretty far back to early days of DOSand early internet ("DARPANET").  Fast forward to today and I am in the field of cybersecurity risk. Soooo... any change in the mood of Anonymous is of some interest to me. Also, any change in the political mind-set of this nation's youth is of interest to me as a political activist who care about our future generations.

Clinton Body Count

People who wander afoul of the Clintons and their foundation tend to die. Many have died of poisoning. Lead poisoning. Vince Foster, Seth Rich, and this fellow recently from Haiti, Klaus Eberwein. Mr. Eberwein was set to testify tomorrow against the Clinton Foundation. Ooops! That's apparently been a fatal decision for him. Mr. Eberwein was found dead with a suicide note that weirdly claimed that no foul play was involved and that his life insurance was running out so he decided to kill himself to collect on it. Yeah, sounds very normal, right?  Do you know of any life insurance policy that pays out on a suicide? I don't, either.

Mr. Eberwein had previously indicated his life was in danger. The Dade County, FL medical examiner said the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head and ruled it a suicide.

It's worth reviewing the list of bodies associated with the Clintons and/or the Clinton Foundation. The link may not work (it was very slow to load) so the image is reproduced below. There is a lot of small print - apologies, I'm not the author. The important thing to notice is the sheer number of people who have ended up dead in suspicious circumstances involving the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation, over several decades. It is a very, very good thing that there is no Clinton in the Oval Office today.

Reboot

Rebooting the Blog

The last several years have been.... I guess you can call it a "growth period" where I had to learn a lot of things and unlearn a lot of things. During this process I did not know what to say or even how to say it on the blog. I didn't think about the blog very much, and when I did, the words just were not there.

Fortunately God has been very good and has not only seen me through the process but given me a new focus and restored my energy for writing. He has also blessed me with many new friends who have enriched me and expanded my thinking. It is  wonderful thing to meet people who know a lot more than you in subjects that you never even considered, and can bring it back in fresh ways to frame today's social, political and economic climate.

I've also spent time learning about Gen Z. I am thinking of ways to include this fascinating and politically savvy group in the blog.  Education - including primary, secondary and post-secondary - seems to be a topic of much interest with Gen Z, and it's also a major focus of my interest now, so expect a significant amount of new content on this topic.

This is going to be a short post. More later. Thank you for your patience.

Obama Broke Law With Bergdahl Swap

Feds: Obama Broke Law With Bergdahl Swap

President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday. “[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the transfer,” the GAO report said.

Prisoner swaps, Obamacare, immigration, IRS intimidation when will this guy stop his lawlessness?

Debbie Wass-her-name Shultz Accidentally Tells the Truth About 0bama

http://www.ijreview.com/2014/07/163093-debbie-wasserman-schultz-goofs-accidentally-tells-truth-president/

Mental Midget Wasserman-Schultz can't keep her metaphor straight in this classic error, showing she absolutely, positively, has the IQ of a potato. Sorry to insult potatoes. 


From Independent Journal Review

We’re guessing that this was a mistake on her part, but that doesn’t mean that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL and DNC Chairwoman) wasn’t telling the truth:
(House Republicans) will be voting for the first time in American history to sue the President of the United States for doing his job.
And doing his job actually less often, and a rate that is lower than any President since Grover Cleveland.

It’s an interesting choice to compare Obama with Cleveland. Mostly forgotten, the Democrat Cleveland was well-known at the time for actively attacking the political machines of the day, was criticized for being an anti-cronyist who was very pro-marketplace instead of merely pro-business, lowered taxes, felt it was immoral for the federal government to take from some citizens to redistribute to others, and when unemployment was 18% his solution was to address inflation instead of meddle with business.

On the other hand, given the scandals over the IRS and Benghazi, the complete destruction of any sense of leadership in international affairs, a questionable economic recovery despite castigating business for immorality, that a percentage of Americans not working that is larger than ever before, and so on, it actually might be better for the country if Barack Obama worked even less.
