The U.S. Constitution is Merely Toilet Paper

Since the very beginning of this great republic there have been those who have desired to transfer as much power as possible from the states and individuals to federal politicians and judges. Starting all the way back to Hamilton’s unconstitutional bank where he made the argument to Washington that the new federal government had the authority to regulate the economy, making the bank constitutional, when in fact no such authority existed. Washington then consulted Jefferson about the bank idea. Jefferson stated that the bank was not an enumerated power, nor was it necessary and proper to carry out any of the enumerated powers, so therefore was unconstitutional. Jefferson’s understanding of the constitution was spot on, while Hamilton’s was wrought with amnesia, for he had completely forgotten all about that war of independence thing a few years earlier and the reasons for it.

It’s very, very disturbing to me to hear so-called constitutional thinkers talk about the constitution in such haphazard and even reckless ways. They, just like those before them have turned the Constitution into a mishmash of mangled words where up means down and left means right. They have reduced the Constitution to a handful of meaningless phrases that completely distort the meaning of various parts of the constitution. Phrases such as the “general welfare ” clause, which is not a clause about general welfare, but instead a clause about taxation, how taxes are raised and what they can be spent on. Another distortion is the term “necessary and proper” also known as the “elastic” clause. which many seem to think this clause is there as some kind of catch-all. This clause, however only allows congress to do those things that are necessary and proper to carry into action powers that are listed in the Constitution such as purchasing battle ships for the navy. The navy is a listed power, but buying battleships is not. Another famous distortion is the “Supremacy Clause” and the notion that all federal laws are supreme…….this could not be further from the truth. Two very important words that are never mentioned in the abbreviated version are “pursuant to”. In order for any federal law or ruling by the Supreme Court to be the supreme law of the land, it must be made pursuant to the constitution, which means it must be constitutional.

Another “Supreme” distortion is the doctrine of incorporation by which it has been contrived that the Bill of Rights applies not only to the federal government, but state and local governments, public schools and anything else the courts wish to apply them to. The United States Constitution applies only as described therein, and the state constitutions apply to the state governments and the other government entities such as counties, cities, and towns.

The United States Constitution does not require a law degree to understand, although it does require several readings and some research. The only correct reading of the Constitution is a literal reading for it actually requires very little “interpretation.” A literal reading of it, however, presents one major problem to those with devious motives toward it. It will give them few, to no avenues for such efforts.

God save the United States Constitution!!!!

All Social Programs are Unconstitutional at the National Level

No, you haven’t entered the twilight zone. Contrary to what many believe, the United States Constitution was not created to provide equality. It was created to delineate authorities in two ways that the Framers and Ratifiers considered essential to maintaining freedom for the people. One was to delineate authorities between the three branches of the National Government which included the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial–we regularly hear that spoken of as the separation of powers. The second, which has been ignored in many ways, and is certainly under constant attack by the freedom robbing Left, was to delineate the authorities between the National, and State governments and the people. There are those who want to control the lives of others…liberals, who will twist and distort the Constitution in any manner possible in order to sodomize the American people with their brand of tyranny cloaked in compassion. Then there are those who want us to believe that they are a lot smarter than what they actually are….lawyers, therefore they are the only ones capable of understanding and interpreting the Constitution.
The Constitution really isn’t difficult to understand, it requires no elaborate education or sleepless nights reading the tangled web of constitutional case law, so it is very important to ignore liberals and lawyers in this respect. The most important thing to study in order to understand the Constitution are the tensions between the Colonies and England that caused secession, the debate and discussions during the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, and more importantly the debate and discussions during the State Ratification Conventions. It does take a little time, but, you will be amazed at how enlightened you will become by doing so. I would say that it comes down to a very simple question when considering if something is constitutional or not….”What would be the response of the Founders and Ratifiers?” We know how they would react to being told that they had to buy something such as health insurance…they would throw it into Boston Harbor. The authorities granted to the new national government codified by the new Constitution were limited, very limited, and defined, with the remainder of the authorities left to the States and the people as detailed in the Tenth Amendment. Nowhere in the Constitution is the national level of government granted the authority to indulge itself in any particular social program. The only way the National Government can do so, is only if the authority has first been created by an amendment to the Constitution….no, the Commerce Clause or the so called General Welfare clause provide no such authority. The politicians and justices at the national level do not have the authority to simply create authorities out of thin air…there is a process.

Can Blacks Be Racist? They Can and They Are

The main problem with race relations is that guilty whites, racist blacks, and Racists of the Highest Order want to frame the argument that racism is a one way road. These racists want everyone else to believe that racism flows only from whites with the minority races being victimized by it. It is said by these clowns that only whites can be racist because of the white power structure and white privilege. As I stated in my post Can Blacks be Racists? They want to argue that the giant white blob is beating up on the much smaller black blob, and then assign all of the traits of each blob to their individual members respectively. So, according to their theory, poor whites possess power over powerful blacks such as Barack Obama, and that individual blacks can’t be racist, because the black blob has no power – isn’t this stupid. They in essence are saying that all whites are perps and all blacks are victims, but do you see what is actually going on here. They are trying to remove any and all responsibility in race relations from blacks so they can be assigned no blame for poor race relations. I have heard several black persons say that the most racist persons they know are other blacks, so it must be true. The racists of the Race Machinery are like the boy who cried wolf too many times. Their constant and never ending allegations of racism devalue the meaning of the word, and more importantly trivialize the experiences of those who were true victims of racism. For Pete’s sake, I heard Joy Behar suggest that it was racist to call Black Friday…Black Friday. Left wing loons like to consider themselves to be scientific, rational and fact based thinkers. They really are very simply butterballs of emotion incapable of anything like they consider themselves. Maybe this all could have been diffused by simply calling the killings at the Charleston church….Churchplace Violence.

The Charleston Church Shooting – What Next?

I woke up this morning and saw on the news about the Charleston Church Shooting, and nearly all of the internet searches I did had “hate crime” in the lead. I read on to learn that nobody knows anything about the suspect other than his name, the car he was driving and his personal appearance. They don’t know if it was a hate crime, if he just woke up with a bad case of heartburn, or was mentally ill. The mayor according to ABC news, said “The only reason someone would walk into church and shoot people is hate.” He doesn’t know that. Might he be laying the groundwork for the race machinery and racists of the highest order to step in do their thing, because this whole hate crime designation, which was pushed by the left is very simply a tool of the race machinery to assist in making whites, whether guilty or not of anything, to feel guilty about the so-called hate crime of the day. Has there ever been an instance when black on white crime was so quickly designated as a hate crime if at all. Murder is illegal regardless of the reason for it, but I think we can rest assured that the race machinery will be in high gear.

Rachel Dolezal – White Guilt Exemplified

It’s interesting that two posts ago I commented about how white guilt is a necessity for the race machine, and then up pops Rachel Dolezal. The question commonly posed is, why? Well it’s very simple. Rachel Dolezal clearly suffers from a severe case of white guilt. She is a hopeless basket case, but others should not allow themselves to be cowered by the left’s race machinery. Nobody has a reason to feel guilty about the various pathologies that exist among blacks. All of the problems that exist among blacks are caused by blacks, and whitey or bigger government can’t fix that. Black lives matter, but they apparently don’t matter to blacks.

Hillary Clinton…Racist of the Highest Order

What exactly is a racist of the highest order? Well simply put, it is a person who doesn’t actually have to be a racist as it is commonly understood, but is a person who benefits from racism, and knows no limits on what can be said or done in order to maximize such benefits. These benefits come in various forms. Some include financial gain, but all include political power. So this person does all possible to create hatred between the races to achieve such benefits. A perfect analogy would be a drug dealer who isn’t a user, but does all he can to promote usage of his product. Hillary Clinton is this drug dealer, but she isn’t the only one.
It used to be that these racists were mainly in the communist wing of the democrat party, but the democrat party has become so extreme, that the communist wing has become the whole bird nearly, and it is now mainstream democrat policy to stoke racial hatred for the gain of political power. They do all they can to generate seething racial hatred on the part of minorities, direct that hatred toward whites generally and republicans specifically, and then take delight in the rioting, looting, and killings with the full expectation that these minorities will head to the polls come election day and vote….democrat.
Hillary Clinton and others just like her claim to care about minorities and proclaim themselves to be their saviors, but very simply are patronizing minorities. Hillary Clinton and her ilk couldn’t care less about minorities, but she and they couldn’t care more about political power, and hence, the minority vote, and they will say absolutely anything to get that vote. They will continue to make promises to minorities that can’t be kept, or that will make no difference in their lives, and all will be said with a smile and a comforting hand on the shoulder with a knife at the ready for their backs. One day, maybe, minorities will figure that out.

Will Obama Move To The Right?

The question of whether or not Obama will make a move to the right if republicans take one or both houses of congress I think has an obvious answer, and that would be an emphatic…..No! He has shown no propensity to compromise or any willingness to work with the opposition in any measure. He is an ideologue who sees his role as president to fundamentally change America. In other words, to change the basics of America.

He will try to sound as though he is moving toward the center and is willing to be more cooperative with republicans, but this will only be for show. Sort of like when the stimulus bill was being debated and most everybody was up in arms, he would come out and talk about how we must cut spending. It’s as though he thinks we are still in the 19th century when a politician could go to one town and say one thing and then go to a town twenty miles away and say the polar opposite. Somebody should tell him that we are in the 21st century, and every word he says is broadcast around the United States as he speaks. He can’t say and act in one way in even a state and go to another state and present himself in the opposite without everyone in the country knowing about.

I get the sense that this being president stuff for Obama is getting old real fast. I really don’t think he is as concerned about being re-elected as he is about changing the country to his liking. He is a worshiper of big government, and he will do all he can to force his religion upon us. We have the First Amendment that prevents congress from forcing religious views upon us, but unfortunately we have no such protections from government worshipers…..wouldn’t it be nice if we did. Republicans should put their names on their office doors with velcro, because they won’t be there long if they forget why they were given back some power if they do in fact get back some power.

The Federal Government Is To Blame

Knee jerk reaction has placed the blame on a lot of villains for the current financial and economic mess we find ourselves in. Greedy Wall Streeters have been blamed, greedy bankers, greedy this, greedy that, derivatives, credit default swaps, mortgage backed securities, and any other convenient scapegoats. These, however were not the problem. Even the real estate bubble itself was not the problem. All of these were symptoms of the problem.

What exactly was the problem? The problem was the meddling in the economy by omnipotent moral busy bodies in the federal government. These perps include, but are not limited to; Presidents, Congress, HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, and even the Justice Department. The collective efforts of these cohorts created the housing bubble. A bubble that caused housing prices to increase anywhere from 30 to 120 percent in a handful of years, and like all bubbles, this one was doomed to burst from the very beginning.

Let’s isolate some of the reckless activities. First, the Federal Reserve kept interest rates unreasonably low in order to spur economic activity. It is a fact that this tactic will have that effect, but the problem is that the Fed can’t control how the borrowed money is spent, and low interest rates draw individuals into the market who shouldn’t be involved.

Legislatively it started with the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977. This act was fairly benign at its inception, but it set the stage for much deeper involvement by the federal government later on. Using their bully pulpits, Presidents Clinton and Bush actively pushed for home ownership while claiming that home ownership was the American dream. Clinton’s Justice Department even threatened some lending institutions with criminal prosecution for discrimination when no such claims were made by rejected borrowers.

The main agency culprits were Fannie and Freddie. These so-called government sponsored private entities that hold special privileges and immunities because of that sponsorship were the main players in creating the housing bubble. They purchased loans from loan originators who would then take the proceeds from that purchase and make more loans for Fannie and Freddie to purchase. This process was repeated over and over and over. Fannie and Freddie also reduced the lending requirement of loans they would purchase which brought individuals into the market who otherwise would not have participated. At the time of the housing crash, Fannie and Freddie held half of all mortgages and were buying three-fourths of all new mortgages. Fannie and Freddie weren’t the only purchaser of mortgages, but they were without a doubt the driving force and set the industry atmosphere.

As housing prices climbed, the need for special financing such as interest only, adjustable rate and no down payment loans became the rage. The combined activities of the Federal Reserve, Fannie and Freddie caused a huge increase in the demand for housing. This increased demand as in all cases, caused higher prices. The higher prices coupled with the eventual interest rate increases by the Federal Reserve put downward pressure on demand which caused prices to fall. When prices fell to the point that the owners owed more than their homes were worth, they bailed.

I know that many of you have noticed that I have placed no blame on the usual scapegoats, because the bubble and the bursting of that bubble should be the focus of our attention, and none of these scapegoats caused the bubble or the eventual bursting of it. Those who purchased homes didn’t look at the usual scapegoats and say, “I want to go buy a home.” They looked at the low interest rates and lazy lending policies pushed by Fannie, Freddie, FHA, and federal politicians. Were it not for the bubble and the bursting of it, the problems that occurred in the financial sector would have never happened. Those who hate the free market like to say the free market failed. The free market didn’t fail, federal government intervention failed—as usual.

Who Is An Enemy Of The State

With the recent terrorists killings by Major Hasan at Fort Hood begs the question—who is an enemy of the state? Terrorist Hasan had showed many signs that he was a radical Islamist who showed that he was a muslim first, and an American second. It seems very obvious at this point that Americans died, were brutally murdered because of political correctness. This murderous beast should have been singled out and kicked out of the military on his back side, especially after all of the red flags he waved prior to his terrorist act.

Patriotic Americans who practice the Islamic faith should not be singled out for critique based solely on their faith, but they should be singled out based on their behavior, I repeat, their behavior. An American muslim who conducts himself as any other patriotic member of the military deserves no special attention, but an American muslim who conducts himself and espouses the beliefs that Major Hasan espoused is a danger to others in the military and has no right to serve in the military. If that hurts the feelings of muslims, they need to be a lot more proactive in expunging their religion of these murderers, instead of sitting on their hands while tacitly condoning these acts.
