DHS BILL: Defend or Subvert the Constitution?

Image result for obama amnesty decreeIt should go without saying that the most sacred duty of our elected representatives is to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Only on the Left would any American think otherwise.

To date, Senate Democrats have successfully filibustered a bill which would fully fund the Department of Homeland Security but which would deny funding for Obama's brazenly unconstitutional amnesty decree.

Upholding the Rule of Law and faithfully defending the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, should always TRUMP any misguided, albeit well-intentioned, desire on the part of the Senate GOP to restore "regular order", inclusive of the filibuster. In the case of DHS funding, "regular order" merely enables Senate Democrats to press for passage of a so-called "clean" bill--inclusive of amnesty funding.

Obviously, passage of a so-called "clean" DHS bill, less the amnesty defunding piece, would serve only to both legislatively circumvent a federal circuit court's temporary injunction against Obama's amnesty decree and lend a veneer of lawfulness to Obama's lawlessness. And that is totally unacceptable.

If the GOP submits to Democratic pressure by permitting passage of the DHS bill--inclusive of funding for amnesty--the GOP is complicit in undermining both Judge Hanen's scholarly ruling and the Constitution itself, and the cloud of ignominy will forever hang over both political parties.

As Charles Krauthammer and Mark Levin have persuasively and wisely counseled, the Senate GOP should ABANDON THE FILIBUSTER rule until a new and more trustworthy and principled president is sworn in 2017. In short, it is incumbent upon our representatives in Congress to use ALL available legislative and legal tools to thwart violations of law and the further erosion of our republic.

Hellbent to fundamentally transform the United States during his remaining tenure in office, the awful truth is that Obama and his arrogant totalitarian minions cannot be trusted to uphold the Rule of Law in this or any other matter. Short of impeachment and removal, abandoning the filibuster would better ensure that Obama is constitutionally restrained. Let HIM veto DHS funding. More fodder for impeachment and removal should it come to that.

It comes down to this: which is more important to the republic? The GOPs restoring regular order in the Senate, thus permitting Democrats to filibuster the DHS funding bill OR the GOPs faithfully upholding the Constitution by denying Democrats the power to filibuster this bill? The answer to that question would be painfully obvious to our Founders.

Oh, by the way, DHS will NOT be shut down even with Obama's veto. 80% of DHS personnel have been deemed essential. Thus, they will dutifully show up for work to protect our nation--unless, of course, King Obama dares to physically prevent them from doing so. And, frankly, I put NOTHING past this White House interloper.

Honor & Integrity Lacking at White House

(Opinerlog Editorial Published by Rochester "Democrat & Chronicle" 02-10-15)

None other than the New York Times reported that Speaker Boehner did inform the White House of the invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu before the invitation was accepted. For whatever nefarious reason, the White House remained silent until after Netanyahu accepted the invitation. In short, folks, there was no "breach in protocol" and the White House knew it.

So, what induced this White House chicanery? Embarrass and undermine Netanyahu and impugn Speaker Boehner. Nothing more high-minded than that.

One must properly question if this White House is capable of dignity, integrity, sound judgement and grace.

With each lie, "phony" scandal, act of lawlessness and rank adolescence, this White House disgraces both the Office of the President and the American people. If unchecked, two more years of this sophomoric and unprincipled administration may be more than America and the World can bear.

Obama Arbitrarily Seizes Sovereign Alaskan Territory

Am getting mighty sick of Congress whining about executive overreach and of States helplessly bemoaning lawless federal seizures of their real estate. Mighty sick!!!

Since Sen. Murkowski characterizes the recent federal seizure of 12 million acres of Alaskan territory "a war on Alaska", my advice to Alaskans is simple and direct: if you really believe this, then NULLIFY this imperial White House decree at once!!! (The White House's justifying its imperiousness by dubbing the seized ANWR acreage "off-limits wilderness" is akin to putting lipstick on a pig! You can dress it up, but it's still invasive federal tyranny.)

If Alaskans really care to understand their constitutional authority over their own territory, for starters I urge Alaskans--as well as citizens of all other States--to read the US Constitution and to check out my post entitled "Federal Imperialism vs State Sovereignty" on

The solution to this brazen federal overreach is as plain as the snow on an Alaskan's face! Stop whining and stop meekly submitting to federal excess! JUST SAY NO BLOODY WAY!!!!!! Who knows. You might even encourage other States to finally stand tall and proud.

But, what will Alaskans most likely do to resolve this federal excess? Well, if history is any indication, Alaskans will submit to lengthy litigation in FEDERAL courts with precious little hope of prevailing in the end. I mean, if you have a territorial dispute with another party, why wouldn't you, the aggrieved party, rely upon the other party's lawyers to fairly settle the dispute? Because doing so would be both stupid and irresponsible. That's why!

I am just so very sick of States who are so routinely unwilling to stand up for themselves, the US and their own State Constitutions, the rights of their Citizens and the Rule of Law. SICK!!!!

If you choose to be spineless and unprincipled, you deserve what you get, Alaska!
