At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Illegal Immigration and the Volstead Act

The Volstead Act was the popular name given to the National Prohibition Act, passed by Congress. It made consumption of intoxicating liquor illegal in the United States - commonly called PROHIBITION. It became the 18th Amendment to the Constitution and a matter of national law.

During Prohibition (prior to its repeal with the 21st Amendment) local law enforcement assisted the federal government by enforcing FEDERAL LAW. I don't recall the Federal Government suing local jurisdictions for helping them.

Fast forward to the present situation in Arizona with 1070 where the Federal Government cites VERY OBSCURE precedent for excluding state and municipal jurisdictions in Arizona for enforcing a state law that is more restrictive than the federal statute.

There are a legion of examples where State Officers have worked to enforce federal law. There are a number of states in the nation with laws on the books that allow state officers to detain suspected illegal aliens - yet Eric Holder, US Attorney General has singled out Arizona for retribution.

Can we keep our republic?

Not the way we're going.

Tea Party Racism!

LTC Allen West speaks on the issue of Tea Party Racism:

(h/t War Planner)

LTC West (candidate for the House of Representatives - FL) is a sought after speaker at Tea Party events. He's speaking to a crowd of Patriots in this video. Most of the people there don't seem to be black - and most of them seem to be disturbed at the unbridled racism of the obama administration. Doesn't it strike you as odd that the people present at Tea Party events would cheer "content of character, not the color of their skin"?

The obama regime and it seems that the NAACP prefer to promote the color of a person's skin over the content of their character and it does not serve them or the American people when they do that.

A "new drug"

It's one heck of an endorsement for the new cure for excessive dishonesty.

Thursday, July 22, 2010


The unemployment problem during the Clinton and Bush terms in office was not daunting in large part because they understood that employers need a stable government with predictable taxation and rules under which they can operate.

The problem with the barack hussein obama regime is that they've done the opposite and they wonder why the true unemployment numbers hover around 20%.

Was obama's father an American Veteran?

Is barack hussein obama lying or is he telling the truth? I know, the default is to presume that he's lying, but it's possible that he is telling the truth here.

(h/t Jim McMahon)

My blogging friend Jim denounced barack hussein as liar but if we dig just a bit deeper, there may be a thread of truth we can cling to.

Many speculate that Frank Marshall Davis was barack hussein obama jr's biological father. (baby daddy) "Uncle Frank" is pictured left and obama's momma is pictured right. Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) served as an agent of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in the United States during the Second World War. I'm sure he was paid off when he left their active employ and that may be what his biological son, barack hussein obama jr. proudly speaks of.

Davis comes to the attention of the FBI later in his career (CLICK HERE FOR WIKIPEDIA).

barack hussein obama sr.  was 5 years old when the US entered the World War 2. He was a British subject so could not have served in US Forces anyway. With a "father" who is a Kenyan (a British subject) he couldn't be a natural born citizen anyway thus couldn't serve as President of the United States -- but that's another story, isn't it?

Lolo Soetoro was 6 years old when the US entered World War 2 and he was an Indonesian citizen, so it's unlikely that barack hussein obama referred to him. Lolo was simply dumb enough to marry Ann Dunham (a slut) who needed a place to sleep and eat when she was living in Indonesia with little Barry. There is no account of Lolo serving in the Indonesian military. I'm guessing that it's not Lolo that he's referring to.

Is barack hussein obama telling the truth in the video clip or is he lying? If he's speaking of "Uncle Frank" as he refers to Frank Marshall Davis in his book, "Dreams of My Father", he received no benefits from the US Government...maybe barack referred to his Russian pay-out?

You be the judge. I simply report the facts.

Crazy California

California is almost as politically disgusting as Illinois

Meg Whitman, Republican candidate for California governor, formerly purported to be tough on illegal immigration, has flip-flopped on her position and now courts the notion of a sanctuary state. It's not a bad political move because Republicans are caught between voting for her (while holding their noses) or voting for her opponent, Democrat Jerry (Moonbeam) Brown, whose failed previous term as governor is legendary in California. Once again, there is no viable choice for an acceptable governor in California. It reminds me of the contest between Lungren (R) and Davis (D) in which you had a contemptible, corrupt Republican running against a corrupt Democratic Party "Moonbeam Disciple".

In a perfect world, this would be struck down by the Supreme Court 

A few weeks ago, the State Assembly passed three misguided bills that would further curtail the rights of lawful gun owners in California. These bills are:
  • Expansion of Firearm Registration - AB 1810 expands the burdensome handgun registration law to include all firearms, such as rifles and shotguns.
  • Ban on Traditional Hunting Ammo - AB 2223 makes it a crime to possess or use any shotgun shell loaded with anything other than nontoxic shot when hunting game or non-game species within a wildlife management area.
  • Open Carry Ban - AB 1934 will outlaw the "open carry" of unloaded legal firearms in public places.

Ground Zero Mosque and Harry Reid

The barack hussein obama regime is treating the Ground Zero Mosque in much the same way as they treat illegal immigration across the US Border. It's IGNORED.

I heard Harry Reid talk about the doctrinal differences he has with barack hussein obama. I have yet to see one. He is de-facto in favor of the Ground Zero Mosque. As Senate Majority Leader he is REQUIRED to take a stand on issues such as this one. Failure to act is in effect, a tacit approval of the Ground Zero Mosque. Harry (at right) would tell you how "pro-American" he really is. However on matters of conscience, he has been deficient on a regular basis.

Would You Buy an Alvin Greene Doll?

Democratic Party Senate nominee Alvin Greene has offered a very original solution to the unemployment problem in America: Build Alvin Greene action figures. (CLICK HERE FOR MORE)
"Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays. Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an army uniform, air force uniform, and me in my suit. They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That's something that would create jobs. So you see I think out of the box like that. It's not something a typical person would bring up. That's something that could happen, that makes sense. It's not a joke."
Military records show Greene served in the Air National Guard from 1995 to 2002 before he was discharged with permission to enlist in another military branch. His records are blank until July 2006, when he re-enlisted in the Army National Guard. After a year, Greene joined the U.S. Army, and was discharged in August.

As for his campaign idea, Greene says he was open to discussions with major toy companies but has not been approached by any. "If they contact me, I would be willing," Greene said. "I'm a true American hero, instead of somebody just fictitious."

One question remains: Should the Alvin Greene, American hero, action figures be made in the US or in China, where all of the other action figures are currently manufactured?

As Greene moves forward toward the election in November, he remains hopeful that South Carolina voters will advance him over his opponent, incumbent Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC).

Greene still faces a trial for allegations of sexual misconduct and stalking. A conviction will not impact his eligibility for the US Senate.

If you wish to contribute to Alvin Greene's campaign, you can do so by visiting his website (HERE). You can send contributions by mail to: Alvin Greene for Senator, PO Box 511, Manning, SC 29102

Feel Good about the ObamaNation!

Here's a little ditty to bring you up.

We are all used to the daily outrage from the barack hussein obama regime, aren't we. It's depressing. Can We Keep Our Republic wants you to feel a little better about it - and Tim Hawkins sings it.

Obama Administration Hiding Failure?

I find it SHOCKING that CNN (part of the mainstream media) would howl over a lack of transparency in the US Government. barack hussein obama and his regime promised transparency when they swept into power a year and a half ago and I'm still waiting for both that transparency and the mainstream/state run media to report fairly.

Here's Anderson Cooper's spin on the situation in the Gulf of Mexico:

Is Senator Harry Reid Insane?

I know he's crazy, but if crazy was a crime, there wouldn't be a single politician on the planet so we need to lower the bar a bit.

Harry Reid invited barack hussein obama to Las Vegas, Nevada to campaign for him!! Doesn't he know that is the KISS OF DEATH to candidates? Harry has been sliding in the polls to Sharon Angle to spite his repeated hit pieces about her - his CONSTANT attacks. Bill Clinton visited Nevada and the numbers didn't move. Do you have any idea how much Harry had to pay Bill to get him to Nevada? And the polls continue to show that it was futile.  But barack hussein obama? People like Bill Clinton. They have general contempt for barack hussein obama.

obama, the great and powerful will be visiting Nevada on July 8th, telling Nevada voters how much he needs good old Harry to continue his process of socializing America, redistributing wealth, and nationalizing businesses.

Las Vegas MAYOR Oscar Goodman (Democrat) responds to barack hussein obama's repeated slams on the City of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Magnate Steve Wynn responds to the barack hussein obama failed administration.  Hey, barack/barry, do you plan to visit Steve Wynn when you're there stumping for Harry Reid?

I guess you know what you're doing, Harry, but this is the last act of a man grasping at straws. 

In fairness to Harry, he needs to hold a rally at his hometown of Searchlight, Nevada, drag barack hussein obama along, and see how many people show up... then again, what if they're Tea Party people who show up...and you can't stack the hills around Searchlight with SEIU thugs?  No, you're right, Harry. Best keep the guest list under control and fill the empty seats with union hirelings!
