States Invoking 10th Amendment/State’s Sovereignty

Posted by wordforit on March 4, 2009

Update: A page to include for clarity with a map of which states have a bill and which are in the planning stage, videos and several articles regarding State’s Rights. Let’s see where this goes!

Resource Page: State’s Rights and Sovereignty  

Whatever it takes to avoid being ruled by tyrants, so be it.

I invite you to read the article at InfoWars.com and please click on the links provided for further understanding. Our best defense, in the carnal sense, is to be armed with knowledge of what goes on around us and what our rights are as American Citizens. We need to stand for personal liberties and state’s rights, now or never! The globalists do not want us to have individualism and think for ourselves. Radio chipped driver’s license, anyone?  Thank God for those who keep sounding the alarm!

Obama’s plans for a federal handgun license, ‘hate crimes’ laws to regulate Christians’ speech about their own religious beliefs on homosexuality, President Obama’s youth corps for mandatory public service and the so-called ‘Fairness Doctrine’ to ‘balance’ talk radio have New Hampshire Lawmakers telling Obama to basically grow up and get some better ideas,” writes Jake Jones. “They say that if Obama’s plans are implimented, it would constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States.”

[. . .]As Obama and Congress further extend the dictatorial reach of the federal government – under the control of a small cotorie of globalists and international bankers – we can expect more states to assert their rights under the Constitution and the Tenth Amendment.”

Continue to see if your state is inclined to reject tyranny!

~~~~~~~~~~

Regarding Christian beliefs about homosexuality or any other issue that haunts us today: Several years ago I declined membership in an organization promoting the Bible as a curriculum in public schools. After prayer and consideration of all encompassing possibilities, I knew it would require that other religion’s doctrines be included and beleived it was something else that would be convoluted, therewith creating greater confusion. God is not the author oif confusion (1Corinthians 14:33).  

The last time I checked, the Bible was being taught as a history lesson is some state districts and I often wonder. . .  by whom is the lesson prepared and presented? Pagans must be overjoyed as one of their favorite claims is that the Bible is a relic or “just a history book”. . . That is my most potent contention against anything that is forced indoctrination via a ‘Fairness Doctrine’ and all the other names under which it’s currently disguised.

As you know, we cannot follow closely enough to keep up with all the destructive fireballs being thrown, therefore, be vigilant to pray without ceasing  (1Thessalonians 5:17) !

(Pre-response to commenters who think to leave something about feeling sorry for my child(ren) and how awful it must be for them [an insulting assumption to start—what if I’m childless? But lecture me, they try!]: Whatever I allow I am condoning and implicitly giving my stamp of approval. I also would not allow in my home pornography, horror movies, Harry Potter, and anything else I am aware will be the same as inviting evil. Please try many hours of Bible study and communion with God through Jesus Christ before you feel equipped to impose your accusations and “enlightenment” on Christians. If you truly begin with a humble heart, which (humble) seems to be the hesitance, you will begin to see through God’s eyes. I am not here to argue over empty and vain philosophies and implore all to read God’s love letter to hunanity, The Bible. Colossians 2:8 ~”Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments [elements] of the world, and not after Christ.” )

LectLaw’s Legal Definition of Tenth Amendment:

The Tenth Amendment provides that ” The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. ” U.S. Const. amend. X. As a textual matter, therefore, the Tenth Amendment “states but a truism that all is retained which has not been surrendered.” United States v. Darby, 312 U.S. 100, 124 (1941). By its terms, the Amendment does not purport to limit the commerce power or any other enumerated power of Congress.

In recent years, however, the Tenth Amendment has been interpreted “to encompass any implied constitutional limitation on Congress’ authority to regulate state activities, whether grounded in the Tenth Amendment itself or in principles of federalism derived generally from the Constitution.” South Carolina v. Baker, 485 U.S. 505, 511 n.5 (1988). Thus, “the Tenth Amendment confirms that the power of the Federal Government is subject to limits that may, in a given instance, reserve power to the States.” New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144, 157 (1992).

There are numbers of ways in which the federal government is permitted to secure the assistance of state authorities in achieving federal legislative goals. . .

Off with their heads?

Posted by wordforit on February 19, 2009

Or, shoot ‘em, burn ‘em, and stone ‘em??? Please don’t think I am being callous toward the victims this post concerns. Far from it. Rather, I am making a pointed statement directed at those who adhere to the cruelty of sharia, or, Islamic law, and how preposterous it sounds to those of us who would not, could not, and should not consider so-called “honor killing” anything less than First Degree Murder.

If those who want to live in the United States are unable, or, more accurately, unwilling, to adapt and assimilate, are we supposed to accommodate them by applying another country’s laws in US courts?

After reading Joseph Farah’s column at WorldNetDaily on Tuesday, Losing our heads over multiculturalism, I am beyond disgusted and cannot fathom that we are learning of beheadings, a.k.a. “honor killings”, on the scale of what is happening right under our noses in the United States.

Most, I presume, have read or heard about the Muslim businessman in New York from the aforementioned article who beheaded his wife rather than go through a divorce. The atrocity of such an act is despicable enough but the idea of this man being charged with Second-degree murder** (below) is incomprehensible and unconscionable.

According to a current study at The Middle East Quarterly by Phyllis Chesler, Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?, honor killings are “Carefully planned. Death threats are often used as a means of control.”. Premeditated is not 2nd degree and a man with the likelihood of abusiveness in his history has serious ‘issues’. He does not deserve to be given a lesser sentence on 2nd degree murder! If you disagree, stop for a moment. Close your eyes. Imagine the horror, literally, of someone you know well, and fear, overpowering you and sawing until they have removed your head from your body.

While there is not one ‘simple’ aspect encompassing domestic violence, decapitation is brutally heinous.

Someone, somewhere is thinking ‘it’s not so unreasonable’ to assume that before we kill our spouses we need to first adopt/convert to Islamic beliefs, then we will have the protection of the numerous defense mechanisms organized to circumvent the US judicial system. ( Please do not leave comments defending Muslims who are not violent and want no part of those who do not want to live in peace [kill infidels. . .at your discretion]. I am well aware of them, the same as I am aware that Christians are not all in-your-face types. Christians, however, do not have laws denigrating women or anyone else.).

In the study, P. Chesler reports:

[. . .] The press has reported a number of honor killings in the United States, Canada, and Europe. These cases show the killings to be primarily a Muslim-on-Muslim crime. (See Table 2 and Table 3.) The victims are largely teenage daughters or young women. Wives are victims but to a lesser extent. And, unlike most Western domestic violence, honor killings are carefully planned. The perpetrator’s family may warn the victim repeatedly over a period of years that she will be killed if she dishonors her family by refusing to veil, rebuffing an arranged marriage, or becoming too Westernized. Most important, only honor killings involve multiple family members. Fathers, mothers, brothers, male cousins, uncles, and sometimes even grandfathers commit the murder, but mothers and sisters may lobby for the killing. Some mothers collaborate in the murder in a hands-on way and may assist in the getaway. In some cases, taxi drivers, neighbors, and mosque members prevent the targeted woman from fleeing, report her whereabouts to her family, and subsequently conspire to thwart police investigations.[19] Very old relatives or minors may be chosen to conduct the murder in order to limit jail time if caught.

Seldom is domestic violence celebrated, even by its perpetrators. In the West, wife batterers are ostracized. Here, there is an important difference in honor crimes. Muslims who commit or assist in the commission of honor killings view these killings as heroic and even view the murder as the fulfillment of a religious obligation. A Turkish study of prisoners found no social stigma attached to honor murderers.[20] While advocacy organizations such as CAIR denounce any link between honor killings and Islam, many sheikhs still preach that disobedient women should be punished. Few sheikhs condemn honor killings as anti-Islamic. Honor killings are not stigmatized.” [. . .] (emphasis, and links to charts from here removed, by wfi. Please click title above and read the entire study! wfi)

The information and charts are enlightening, to say the least, and hopefully enough to cause us to take a stand in speaking , writing, voting and any other means you have available to let it be known that this is unacceptable. At least share the link! We may not be able to personally do anything in other countries, but we can make it known that we do not tolerate hide-behind-Islamic-law nonsense! We do not recognize sharia (Islamic law-Koran) in the United States, and allowing this to go on in Western countries for as long as the above-linked study indicates is descriptive of the hard hearts of our lawmakers, and/or the disinterest when it comes to the difficult task of standing up for principles when it entails risks of being called “racist” in the multiculturalism disorder.

Multiculturalism, indeed.

******************

There are differences state to state defining 1st & 2nd degree murder.

http://www.lectlaw.com/def2/m053.htm MURDER, FIRST DEGREE – In order for someone to be found guilty of first degree murder the government must prove that the person killed another person; the person killed the other person with malice aforethought; and the killing was premeditated.

To kill with malice aforethought means to kill either deliberately and intentionally or recklessly with extreme disregard for human life.

Premeditation means with planning or deliberation. The amount of time needed for premeditation of a killing depends on the person and the circumstances. It must be long enough, after forming the intent to kill, for the killer to have been fully conscious of the intent and to have considered the killing.

First-degree murder in California includes a killing that is “willful, deliberate, and premeditated,” or that is committed in the perpetration, or attempt to perpetrate, certain felonies, including burglary, and not including the petty offense of shoplifting. Cal. Penal Code S 189.
http://www.lectlaw.com/def2/m054.htm MURDER, SECOND DEGREE – In order for someone to be found guilty of second degree murder the government must prove that the person killed another person; the person killed the other person with malice aforethought; and the killing was premeditated. Note that the elements are identical with those for 1st degree murder. The practical difference is the sentences are different. Which crime to charge is usually entirely up to the prosecutor’s discretion. (emphasis by wfi)

I have been trying to ‘get around to’ posting about the illegal aliens who recently sued an Arizona rancher and won $77,000.00 . Imagine what you could do with that amount of money. Now imagine living in Mexico with that amount of money. . . tired of sending US dollars elsewhere. . .

May God Keep You.

RDRR: Obama’s standup routine

Posted by wordforit on February 11, 2009

In honor of my mother, I will first say something nice about Obama: at least he presents a vocabulary lesson. That’s it. I’m all in for nice things to say about someone who already thinks too highly of himself.

Doubtful that it has ever happened, or ever will again, that one candidate repeatedly Renounced, Denounced, Repudiated and Rejected close associates and the statements that sounded out their ignorance. One more R with a word for it: Renege, which is already manifesting, leaving us with RDRR. . . R. We may as well smirk; the dynamics are in place and we are going to see more handouts than ever imagined for any reason ever imagined. I pray that Christians are settled in their minds that, although we have work to accomplish, we are just passing through.

Proverbs 29: 2~ When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

Note: Check out final link to see associates from whom Obama did not disassociate. “Creepy” is in the air. . .

******************

Stephen Spruiell & Kevin Williamson, over at National Review put together an outstanding ‘exposition’ regarding the stimulus package: 50 De-Stimulating Facts, Chapter and Verse on a Bad Bill.  (all links-new window.WFI)

Excerpt:

“. . .The easiest targets in the stimulus bill are the ones that were clearly thrown in as a sop to one liberal cause or another, even though the proposed spending would have little to no stimulative effect. The National Endowment for the Arts, for example, is in line for $50 million, increasing its total budget by a third. The unemployed can fill their days attending abstract-film festivals and sitar concerts.
. . .Of course, it wouldn’t be a liberal wish list if it didn’t include something for ACORN, and sure enough, there is $5.2 billion for community-development block grants and “neighborhood stabilization activities,” which ACORN is eligible to apply for. Finally, the bill allocates $650 million for activities related to the switch from analog to digital TV, including $90 million to educate “vulnerable populations” that they need to go out and get their converter boxes or lose their TV signals. Obviously, this is stimulative stuff: Any economist will tell you that you can’t get higher productivity and economic growth without access to reruns of Family Feud. . . “

******************

Some say it’s the work of the teleprompter when he articulates well, and there are more pauses and stuttering when he tries to ad lib, but after reading a 67 page> PDF report on hypnotism, I believe every move he makes, or does not make, is purposeful.

HT: Devvy Kidd, NewsWithViews (new window: No, We Don’t Have a New President)

Excerpt:

“. . .However, a very small percentage of the population actually study subconscious manipulation of not only how people feel about them, but how to manipulate and alter the beliefs we usually come to by our rational judgment, reason, and experience. These people study specifically how to sideline this rational judgment, reason, and experience, and natural feelings, and bend people’s feelings and will through the application of this branch of psychiatry to their interactions.

Obama is an expert at this type of artificial manipulation. His ability to convince rationally and any natural “charm” is only part of how a person feels about Obama. . . .”

******************

Obama grasped the lessons on ‘word placement’, causing many to consider him intelligent. We used to call it razzle-dazzle, among other euphemisms, but ‘somehow’ he bypasses the manure detectors. I wonder if a lot of the cultees don’t understand the semantics, except for the parts that sound like ‘free’. As the saying goes, “You cannot fool all of the people all of the time. . . “.

Devious is not intelligence, as I have heard relayed to actions of others because they prosper or ‘get-over’ through means which would burden most of us with a guilty conscience. Devious is dishonest, with Obama at the top, for the time being. Like satan, he will find himself displaced without turning to the only true friend any of us have, Jesus Christ. If Obama was even a ‘good man’, regardless of his belief system, he would have put the brakes on the profoundly offensive messiah-speak long ago. He thinks to pontificate about everything except what’s important! As it is, there is no way he believes Jesus is the Messiah or the Holy Spirit would be able to suggest conviction in his heart. It’s very, very easy to see through Obama if you’re truly praying for discernment with all agendas turned off.

******************

Les Kinsolving has an article on WorldNetDaily.com (linked below) about how questions are fielded that will be asked before a presidential speaking engagement. As I waited for something, anything, to come on TV besides ObieOne, Charlie Gibson was out of his mind Monday night (2-09-09) when he said that Obama “answered 13 questions in detail and seemed to use each as an opportunity to teach”. C’mon, Charlie! Are Americans really thought to be that stupid? It’s not stupidity that causes us to be duped, it’s that infamous ‘tolerance’. Or, as G.W. Bush is attributed with saying, “ You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on. “

I have read several times that viewers noticed Obama looking at notes before calling on reporters, as in “roll call”. LKinsolving tells us why!

Will Obama hold ‘fixed’ press conferences?   Les Kinsolving

Excerpt:

“. . .The press corps, most of us, don’t even bother raising our hands any more to ask questions because Obama always has before him a list of correspondents who’ve been advised they will be called upon that day. . .”

******************

There is another extraordinary article on WND from Janet Porter. In it she shares an e-mail which asserts that Obama was groomed by communists from the start to become POTUS. It has been my contention, and many others believe as I do, that there are powerful forces at work to put such nonsense in our White House .JPorter states that she did not share the e-mail before now because it seemed so extreme, and it does, but I am not surprised by anything coming from the evil of power trips. . .

Socialism Communism scheduled for a vote in Senate   Janet Porter

Excerpt:

“. . .Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born, and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of presidents. He is what you call ‘Ivy League.’ You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your president.”

. . .She became more and more smug as she presented her stream of detailed knowledge and predictions so matter-of-factly – as though all were foregone conclusions. “It’s all been thought out. His father is not an American black, so he won’t have that social slave stigma. He is intelligent and he is half white and has been raised from the cradle to be an atheist and a Communist. He’s gone to the finest schools. He is being guided every step of the way and he will be irresistible to America. . . .”

******************

Everyone should read the entire article and ask whether it’s feasible. If you come away with other than ‘absolutely’, please go back to more serious research! If you are a Bible-believing Christian, you know that in Luke 4:6 satan bragged to tempt Jesus Christ, saying, “it’s all mine to give to whomever I wish.” Conspiracies are nothing new! I do not believe ObieOne is the final antichrist (no one can yet be certain), but I do believe he is laying out the red carpet. . . pun intended.

RDRR. . . R. What a show.

May God Have Mercy.
