red_tape_bureaucracy

The growth of the federal bureaucracy has led to a decline in constitutional republicanism, and here’s the really bad news: It’s only getting worse They say that elections have consequences, and that is very much true, at least in terms of presidential races. Imagine how much different the country might look if Barack Obama had not won two terms in office. But what about on the congressional level? Those elections should matter too, right? Now that the Republicans control both chambers of Congress, Americans should begin to see some changes in Washington – right? Not really. In fact, with each passing ...

F-22_carrier

Only a handful of times have U.S. presidents sought congressionally approved declarations of war before committing American military forces to battle, but that is the method called for by the Constitution The constitutionality of the War Powers Act of 1973 has never been successfully challenged in court because the Judicial Branch refuses to hear the case President Obama is merely the latest president to do this, but by overwhelming margins, the American people want to be heard on the matter, via their elected representatives The Constitution isn’t much in fashion these days in our nation’s capital – the place where it should ...

Obama_Hispanic_caucus

President Obama has threatened to enact amnesty for millions of illegal aliens after the 2014 midterm elections Such a move, Republicans charge, is unconstitutional; amnesty, they say, must be legislated, not signed into effect by the Executive Branch The Judicial Branch may be the only other constitutional way, short of impeachment, to successfully challenge the president By Charles Greene President Obama has made it clear that he is ready go it on his own, with or without the support of Congress, regarding sweeping immigration policy changes. The administration’s plans include issuing deferred deportations and work permits to millions of illegal aliens in ...

Eric Holder is the most racist attorney general ever

Eric Holder

Practically everything Eric Holder, Jr., did while serving as U.S. attorney general was centered around, focused or premised on alleged ‘racism’ Yes, we know – minorities aren’t capable of being racists. That’s what left-wing Democrats have told America for years. It’s simply not possible because, you know, being minorities and all, they don’t have the kind of power that majority whites have in imposing their own cultural mores and general bigotry. But what about when minorities actually hold positions of power, as a great many do? What about when they are the most powerful law enforcement officer in the country, save ...

Obama’s Justice Department Does not Want to Find Lois Lerner

lerner

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner has been held in contempt of Congress but the U.S. attorney for Washington, D.C., has never brought her case before a federal grand jury, as he is required by law to do The U.S. attorney is an Obama appointee, and though he apparently can’t locate Ms. Lerner, Politico had no trouble doing so It doesn’t appear likely that the administration is in any hurry to have her testify as to her alleged role in IRS targeting of conservative political organizations prior to the 2012 elections The Obama administration, including the president himself, has pledged to get to ...
