Fort Hood Shooting

In honor of our family friend and her unborn child, Francheska “Cheeka” Velez:

Tomorrow the US Army will present Purple Hearts to those injured & killed by terrorism at Ft Hood. Why it matters: @SenTedCruz

Army Secretary John McHugh announced in February the service would award the medals, calling the gesture “an appropriate recognition of their service and sacrifice.” While opponents of President Obama predict he will attempt to garner credit for this “change of heart and the water-carrying news media will help him, it was the Republicans in the U.S. Congress who got these heroes their medals and benefits,” said former Naval officer and federal law enforcement official Charles Collingwood.

Special thanks to The Blaze for producing a moving documentary to tell this story:

Waiting For Justice

The victims say they feel abandoned by the U.S. government and by their military. The Pentagon last year fought efforts to award the Purple Heart out of concern that doing so could harm Hasan’s chance at receiving a fair trial.

U.S. and Iranian officials have described last week’s framework for a deal to slow Iran’s nuclear weapons program with disturbingly different details. According to a Times of Israel report Tuesday, the U.S. account also differs significantly with a key ally – France.

The proposed deal lets Iran continue to develop use advanced centrifuges which could allow for uranium enrichment as much as 20 times faster than the Islamic Republic’s current technology. After 12 years, Iran can actually resume enriching uranium, which the newspaper reported “would enable Iran to more rapidly accumulate the highly enriched uranium needed to build nuclear weapons, accelerating its breakout time to the bomb.” The source is an internal French government fact-sheet which the newspaper was able to review, but which has not been released publicly.

That timeline, however, dovetails with an acknowledgment President Obama made this week in an interview with National Public Radio. Iran’s “break-out” time to make a bomb could shrink “almost down to zero” by year 13 after any final deal is negotiated, Obama said.

Israeli analyst Ehud Yaari identified six terms in the proposed agreement in which the United States and Iran have offered different assessments. Among them: Iran believes it stands to secure immediate relief from crippling economic sanctions, while the U.S. says that relief comes in phases as various commitments are met. In addition, Iran believes it can continue to use the Fordo underground uranium enrichment plant for developing centrifuges, while the U.S. says no enrichment could take place there for 15 years.

Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz briefed reporters Monday on recommendations which could lead to “a more reasonable agreement.” The Fordow plant must be shut down entirely, inspectors must be able to make unannounced visits “anywhere, anytime” and development of new centrifuges must be prohibited, he said.

Although Israel prefers a diplomatic solution to the issue, Steinitz acknowledged, it was still reserving the right to take military action against Iran should it be necessary.

“It’s still on the table, it’s going to remain on the table,” he said. “It’s our right and duty to decide how to defend ourselves, especially if our national security and even very existence are under threat.”

Saudi Arabia is one of the 10 countries in the world where gay sex is punishable by death.

So where is the Gay community on this?!

George Will blasted Apple CEO Tim Cook Tuesday on “Special Report” for his continued critique of the Indiana religious freedom law while he does business with Saudi Arabia.

The syndicated columnist told host Bret Baier that while Cook believes Indiana is a “horrible” place, he opened up Apple operations in the Middle Eastern nation which continues to persecute individuals for being gay. Will sarcastically added that “the selective indignation” on Cook’s part is “wonderful.”

There’s nothing more tiresome in modern American life than the indignation sweepstakes we get in all the time to see who can be most angry about this and that. Tim Cook as was mentioned, the CEO of Apple… thinks Indiana is a horrible place. He opened marketing and retailing operations in Saudi Arabia two months before a man was sentenced to 450 lashes for being gay. The selective indignation is itself wonderful. – George Will

I signed the letter to Iran. But you know what? The message I was sending was to you.

The message was to President Obama that we want you to obey the law. We — we want you to understand the separation of powers.

Sen. Paul Questions Secretary Kerry on Authorization for War with ISIS Mar 11, 2015:

Madison wrote that, “History demonstrates what the Constitution supposes, that the executive branch is most prone to war, and therefore, the Constitution, with studied care, vested that power in the legislature.”

Madison also went on to further write that, “The separation of powers would be protected by pitting the ambitions of one branch against the ambitions of another.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul today attended the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing to question Secretary of State John Kerry regarding the Obama Administration’s proposed authorization for use of military force (AUMF) against the Islamic State, known as ISIS. During the hearing, Sen. Paul emphasized the need for the Executive Branch to abide by the U.S. Constitution and seek approval from the Legislative Branch on matters of war, and reiterated that Congress must carefully consider the long-term ramifications of passing an overly broad AUMF. A video and transcript of the exchange can be found below.

rand king

I can tell you, I’m not particularly happy with being lectured to by the administration about the Constitution. This is an administration who I believe has trampled the Constitution at many turns.

This is an administration that seeks to legislate when that is not in their purview, whether it be immigration, whether it be health care or whether it now be a war that’s been going for eight months without congressional authorization.

This administration is in direct defiance of what Senator Obama ran on and he was elected upon. He said, “No country should go to war without the authority of Congress unless under imminent attack.”

Thanks to The Greater Orlando Tea Party Lecture Series:

“I’m a libertarian activist and political researcher from Christchurch, New Zealand. I believe in freedom with responsibility, not freedom from responsibility. My ideal society is one in which government is confined to protecting its citizens from criminals and external enemies. I believe in working with all those who are moving in broadly the same direction. – Trevoe Loudon

Regarding his two books, his first book, BARACK OBAMA and the ENEMY WITHIN describes the Marxist-Leninist ties of Barack Obama and that of his closest allies and influences including his Cabinet members. The sequel, The ENEMIES WITHIN: Communists, Socialists, and Progressives Within the US Congress exposes those who are card carrying members of Communist Party, USA and names those working through those in the Black Caucus in their travels back and forth to Cuba working with the Castro
Government to undermine ours.

Loudon’s investigative work began after watching the rise of communism in his home country of New Zealand. Worried the same thing might happen in the U.S., he asked a former communist to explain how it happened.

That confidant, Loudon told WND, revealed the big secret of the Marxists is that they make small gains by infiltrating institutions that have political influence ¬– like churches, labor unions and universities – and spread their “yeast” from there. In time, the communists within rise up to infiltrate and control the much larger, mainstream political parties and institutions.

In the United States, Loudon told WND, communists have been following the recipe perfectly, including cooking up a White House candidate.

“I was researching the U.S. Democrats and Communist political parties in 2007, and that’s where I discovered the ties between Barack Obama and the Hawaii Communist Party’s Frank Marshall Davis,” Loudon said.

“I could see that Obama was destined for greatness,” he continued, “so I did a year’s research on Obama (and his Communist Party connections), and I found a bunch of connections. I started to put it up on my website and my blogs, and that’s when I exposed Van Jones, the communist green job czar.”

And if freedom falls to communist rule in America, Loudon warned, the rest of the world may fall as well.

“We lost credibility from the next fight because of this vote today.” – Gary Palmer

IMHO a Reagan in the making! ~ JP

MUST see Gary on house floor speech after the vote. JUST type Palmer in search and click play.

House Session, Part 2

The House passed H.R. 240. The bill funds the Department of Homeland Security without the policy rider that blocks President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

THIS is what he said: Excuse the caps, its CSpan :) *The transcript for this program was compiled from uncorrected Closed Captioning.

ACTUALLY. WE ARE NOT THREE SEPARATE BUT EQUAL BRANCHES OF THE GOVERNMENT. THE ABUSE OF THE EXEC TESTIFY ORDER HAS DIMINISHED CONGRESS AND THE ABUSE OF THE SENATE RULES HAS DIMINISHED THIS HOUSE. WE ARE NOW REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL ALLOW US TO PASS. AND WE ARE — AND THE SENATE’S REDUCED TO PASSING WHAT THE SENATE WILL NOT VETO. THIS IS ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION. WE HAVE THREE MORE DAYS IN WHICH WE CAN CONSIDER LEGISLATION THAT UPHOLDS THE RULE OF LAW, THAT RESTORES THE BALANCE OF POWERS. WE SHOULD TAKE THOSE THREE DAYS. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS A DAY THAT WE WILL REMEMBER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, THAT THE COUNTRY IS LOOKING TO US RIGHT NOW TO MAKE A DECISION WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL UPHOLD OUR OATH OF OFFICE. I CALL UPON EVERY MEMBER OF THIS HOUSE TO BE AN OATH KEEPER. I YIELD THE BALANCE OF MY TIME.

Palmer Votes Against Bill Funding Obama’s Unconstitutional Executive Action

“Netanyahu said we were the most powerful legislative body in the world. And we are until the President says we aren’t.” – Gary Palmer

March 3, 2015 Press Release:. As did ALL of Alabama congressional Republicans.

“The abuse of the executive order and abuse of the Senate rules has diminished this House.” - Gary Palmer

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) in a statement saying:

“The will of the American people cannot be forever denied. Republicans will have to come to realize that it falls on their shoulders to give voice to the just demands of the American people for a lawful system of immigration that serves their interests, defends their jobs, protects their security.”

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Gary Palmer voted against a bill that would allow for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funds to go toward President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action concerning immigration, and is deeply disappointed that the bill passed:

“I have no higher priority as a member of Congress than restoring Constitutional governance. When it comes to funding DHS, the focus has been on immigration, but that is really not the issue. The real issue is the separation of powers set up by our Constitution. I believe the President, the Congress and the Courts should have the power given to them by the Constitution but not one power more.

“I am pleased that a court has given an injunction against President Obama’s unconstitutional executive order, and I hope that will result in this illegal order being permanently struck down. However, it is not the sole function of the judiciary to uphold the Constitution. Congressmen also take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. This vote was not about politics, but about keeping my oath.

“Congress can and should pass legislation to secure our borders and fix our immigration system, but nothing in the law justifies unilateral action by the executive. The Constitution forbids the executive from unilaterally making law, and that is precisely what the President is attempting to do. I have consistently opposed measures that would legitimize President Obama’s unlawful executive action and I am deeply disappointed that this bill has passed.

“If Congress does not stand up for its own Constitutional role in the process of governance, no one else will. I fear this vote today will lead to further lawless action by the executive branch and further erosion of the powers granted to the Congress by the Constitution.”
