Mark Levin’s Game Changer: Using The Constitution To Arrest Federal Drift


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

 

The more this journalist, studies this issue, he leans toward the use of the Tenth Amendment to accomplish nullification of laws that are not constitutional by the States.

Imagine an Article V Convention in which those on the left are bussed in by the unions, their hoards of do nothing takers helped by the likes of ACORN, SEIU and others to further feather their agendas.

That doesn’t work for me, how about you?

Two Marks, Levin and Meckler, notably and nobly are proposing to change the rules of modern politics and governance.

Debuting at Amazon Number One (for all, not merely political, books) is syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin’s The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic. Sporting an average of 4.7 stars from, at the time of this writing, 153 reviews on Amazon, imagesLevin calls for a populist suite of Constitutional amendments to be initiated by the States.

Levin proposes to reform the federal government from its degenerate, bloated, imperial structure back to its (small r) republican roots. Even more interesting than his specific proposals is the mechanism.

There is a little-known “emergency cord” built into the Constitution by the Founders. Find it in Article V. It allows for the States, rather than just the Congress, to propose Constitutional amendments. It is obscure yet entirely legitimate — and invaluable. It was extolled by James Madison in The Federalist No. 43.

Meanwhile, on August 15th, on the ground and the Web, a civic “Seal Team Six” — of operatives and activists — has constituted itself as ConventionOfStates.com. (This columnist has there enlisted as a foot soldier.) Its purpose? “COS seeks to call a Convention of States for a particular subject—limiting the jurisdiction and power of the federal government. This strategy would allow the states to formally consider almost all of Mark Levin’s ‘Liberty Amendments,’ giving delegates the freedom to propose the necessary amendments to stop the runaway power of Washington, D.C.”

COS’s president is Mark Meckler, head of Citizens for Self-Governance. Meckler co-founded and co-coordinated the Tea Party Patriots, the largest and most authentic Tea Party mega-group. He departed thence “to work more broadly on expanding the self-governance movement beyond the partisan divide.” Head of Citizens for Self-Governance’s Convention of the States Project is the powerful and principled Michael Farris, Chancellor of Patrick Henry College and Chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association. They are joined by Mark Wohlschlegel II, Executive Director, Laura Fennig, Coalitions Director and Jordan Sillars, Communications Director.

FBI Colludes with VA to Take Veterans’ Guns


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Nothing is sacred under Obama’s lawless reign of terror.

doctor-examines-patient

Would VA physicians break the Dr. Patient confidentiality and turn the requested information over to the FBI so that veterans could be denied their God-given right under the Second Amendment to own a firearm(s)? 

Bet your lunch money on it.

Make absolutely no mistake about it, Obama is a modern day tyrant and will just keep moving the bar on hisobama-tyrantexcessive abuses of power. 

He must be legally stopped by We the People, as our elected officials show no inclination what so ever to stop him.

veterans-health-care-vets

A shocking new report shows the FBI is colluding with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to prevent veterans from exercising their Second Amendment rights to bear arms using not only medical information, but financial data, as well.

 The memo from February 2012, first obtained by The Daily Caller, is entitled “MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS AND THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION REGARDING THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM.”

The document states that the VA must provide health-related information of veterans to the bureau:

VA will provide an encrypted compact disc exchanged via mail to the FBI no less than quarterly for, inter alia, inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
A separate “frequently asked questions” document said the “VA provides the Department of Justice a monthly list of individuals who have been rated by VA as being unable to manage their VA benefits.”

“A monthly CD” is sent by the VA information technology center in Austin, Texas, to the FBI. On the CD are new names of veterans added to the watch list. While the number of veterans “fluctuates,” as many as “129,440 beneficiaries were in the program as of July 12, 2012,” according to the memo.

One veteran, Douglas Szklarski told The DC,

 “I was getting real sick from the medications they had me on,” I pretty much lived in bed. Somebody brought me a joint. I started using cannabis. It started turning me around immediately. So I said I wouldn’t [take the VA pills] anymore. They said you have to take them. They deemed me incompetent.

“I’ve had like nine doctors say I wasn’t incompetent and they still went after my guns,” Szklarski added. “ATF came to my house. I had to surrender them.”

Szklarski noted he appealed the VA’s decision and only “just got” his guns back.

The publication noted that if the VA says you can’t handle your financial affairs, for example by changing banking methods, you could also land on the list. Even agents with the Bureau for Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will confiscate veterans’ firearms.

This report comes after a letter submitted by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to Attorney General Eric Holder last week asking several questions about the VA’s questionable policy.

Why would our government be actively seeking to disarm those who risked their lives and swore to serve and protect our country?

Mark Levin Refuted: Keep the Feds in Check with Nullification, not Amendments !


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

 

What follows in the piece below written by Publius Hudah is and exchange between constitutional scholar and “another,” read more to find out who wins.

In the video included, the Tenth Amendment Center, through talk show host, Tom Woods  takes Levin, the self-annointed “Great one” to task with a $10,000 challenge to debate him, the loser paying to the others favorite charity.

This is and excellent piece once again H/T to Brea for the great lead. 

 

By Publius Huldah from her website.IMG_1402

What Mark Levin says in “The Liberty Amendments” in support of an Article V convention is not true.1

 

 

We note that the Oath of Office requires obedience to the Constitution alone.  The Oath does not require obedience to persons, to any agency of the federal government, or to any federal court.

We understand that resistance to tyranny is a natural right – and it is a duty.

da9f442c99be4d8d914f501396b4e780

On one side of this controversy are those who want to restore our Constitution by requiring federal and State officials to obey the Constitution we have; or by electing ones who will.  We show that the Oath of Office at Art. VI, last clause, requires federal 2 and state officials to support the Constitution.  This requires them to refuse to submit to – to nullify – acts of the federal government which violate the Constitution.  This is how they “support” the Constitution.

We have read original writings of our Framers and know what our Framers actually told the States to do when the federal government violates the Constitution: Nullification of the unlawful act is among the first of the recommended remedies – not one of which is “amendment of the Constitution”.

It is already proved in James Madison Rebukes Nullification Deniers, that our Framers endorsed nullification by States of unconstitutional acts of the federal government.  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison summed it up as follows:

“…when powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the act”4 is “the natural right, which all admit to be a remedy against insupportable oppression…” 5

The claims of the nullification deniers have been proven to be false.  To persist in those claims – or to do as Levin seems to do and ignore the remedy of nullification – is intellectually and morally indefensible.  So why don’t they apologize to the public and recant their errors?

Instead, they continue to tell us that what we need is a “convention of the States” (which Levin and his mentors insist is provided by Article V of the Constitution) to propose amendments to the Constitution, and that this is the only way out.

Yes, they tell us, the only way to deal with a federal government which consistently ignores and tramples over the Constitution is …. to amend the Constitution!

Do you see how silly that is?

 Levin’s Amendments

Levin starts his book by saying how bad things are and how the federal government has trampled and mangled the Constitution.  Those pages are true.  And they serve the purpose of making readers believe that Levin is “on our side”.  And because of that, many are induced to lay aside their critical thinking skills and accept on trust what Levin tells them. That is a deadly mistake.

Levin’s amendments actually gut our Constitution.  Most increase the powers of the federal government by making lawful what is now unconstitutional because it is not an “enumerated power”. Others put a band-aid on a problem without solving the problem. The amendments pertaining to “overrides” undermine the Constitution as the Objective Standard of what is lawful and what is not – and substitute majority vote therefor. 6

A Defective Constitution? Or a Disobedient Federal Government?

We must distinguish between defects within a Constitution, and a government’s refusal to obey the Constitution to which it is subject.  These are different problems calling for different remedies.

FBI agent’s sniper rifle stolen out of car’s safe through the WINDOW at Salt Lake City hotel… just days before President Obama’s Utah visit


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Me thinks the police officer in the video below, has protested too much about the weapon being secured properly.

If it had been would it have been taken from the car?

slc-sniper-threat

Also of note, why was the policeman involved not instructed not to leave his weapon in his car in a high theft area?

Wouldn’t that be standard operating procedure to put the rifle in it’s carrying case and take it to the hotel?

It likely will be now.

April 25, 2015

You are right Ms. Brea you can’t make this stuff up.

Well, maybe one can !  What if someone heard the officer involved had planned to take Obama out making himself infamous, like, John Wilkes Booth and JFK’s wrongly accused and murdered Lee Harvey Oswald? 

Of course this is said in jest, the only way Obama must leave office is by legal means.

An FBI agent’s sniper rifle (similar to the one pictured) was ripped out of his car’s windowvideo-undefined-27FFC99D00000578-369_638x358 and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot 

An FBI agent’s sniper rifle was ripped out of his car’s window and stolen from a Salt Lake City hotel parking lot just days before President Obama visited Utah earlier this month.

The gun was inside a hard rifle case and was ‘secured properly’ to a truck safe with padlocks and chains while the car was parked at the Marriott Springhill Suites, according to police.

Police believe the thief stole the rifle by breaking the rear right passenger-side window, tying a rope around the rifle case’s handle or a cable lock, and using the momentum from another vehicle to then break the case’s handle free from the lock.

The window frame of the agent’s car was pulled from the door, which police believe could indicate the large case was ripped through the shattered window.

‘The rifle had been secured properly,’ Salt Lake City Police Detective Dennis McGowan told Fox 13 Salt Lake City.

‘There are all kinds of ways the weapon was secure. Yet someone was able to forcefully take the weapon.’ 

The FBI agent also reported that his gear bag, backpack, and some clothing and tools were also stolen during the March 27 theft, which the police report states happened overnight.

Al Qaeda, jihadist allies declare victory over Syrian regime in city of Jisr Al Shughur considered the areas last stronghold


Screen-Shot-2015-04-25-at-9.09.33-AM

 

Probably a hell of a lot of nice guys among them, the one above is even smiling.

Make sure you bring your guns, grenades, night vision goggles and RPG’s

 

The Long War Journal

Screen Shot 2015-04-25 at 7.59.46 AM

The Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, and its allies have declared victory over the Syrian regime in the city of Jisr Al Shughur. The city was considered one of the regime’s last remaining strongholds in the northwestern province of Idlib.

Late last month, the jihadists launched a major offensive in the province, sweeping Assad’s forces out of the provincial capital. The battle for Jisr Al Shughur was the next major step in the jihadists’ plan to consolidate their control over the area.

A regime barricade overran by the jihadists:

Al Nusrah claims these men were massacred by regime forces as they fled the city:

Screen Shot 2015-04-25 at 9.03.42 AM

Al Nusrah declared “victory” on one of its official Twitter feeds, adding that the city has been “liberated.” Some of the photos posted on the Twitter page show al Qaeda’s fighters in control of the city’s center, the regime’s checkpoints, and a regime-built hospital.

Al Nusrah uses another photo, picturing a number of bodies piled on top of one another, to claim that Assad’s forces committed a “massacre” as they fled the city.

Multiple groups took part in the fighting. The jihadists established a coalition named the “Battle of Victory” to coordinate their efforts during a major push into the city. The alliance is modeled after the Jaysh al Fateh (“Army of Conquest”) alliance that overran the city of Idlib late last month, but includes a different configuration of groups.

In addition to the Al Nusrah Front, the “Battle of Victory” coalition includes Ahrar al Sham, Jaysh al Islam, Ansar al Din, and Ansar al Sham. Other groups also participated in the battle. Some of these other organizations have known links to al Qaeda as well. [See LWJ report, Al Nusrah Front, allies launch new offensives against Syrian regime.]

A map posted by Ahrar al Sham, which was seeded with al Qaeda veterans early on in the Syrian uprising, shows the jihadists in control of most of the city (green), with Assad’s forces being pushed to the city’s outskirts (red). Ahrar al Sham’s map can be seen at the beginning of this article. The group has also published various other images from the fighting.

This Will Make Hillary Supporters’ Heads Explode


 

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

The vast majority of Hillary voters are among the low functioning brain dead, they wouldn’t have a clue how to vote intelligently if they were carpet bombed with them.

human-brain-illustration

Hillary Clinton may indeed be may be vacuous.  It’s not what we know about her, and that should bring the entire “House of Babble.” where she hides out completely down.

It’s what we don’t know about Hill and Bill, that we will eventually find out, hopefully before they die so they can be brought down on RICO statutes. 

Will that happen?  Not likely as Republicans when they take the presidency in 2016 will have far bigger fish to fry and God knows Hillary is a “Whopper.”

Thus they will skate off into the sunset as the U.S. Taxpayer pays for the graphite on their skates and their double dipping retirement programs as well.

How to Make Yourself Throw Up_6

The though of it is enough to make me want to hurl !

H/T to Brea for another great lead.

The Hillary machine is running full steam ahead.

From TPP

With a cool new logo (that actually has a red arrow moving right in a sea of blue), Clinton is reaching out to her fan base to help her gather momentum for the 2016 elections.

The problem for Hillary is most of her supporters are vacuous nincompoops who only support her based on her gender and not on her politics.

Screen-Shot-2015-04-14-at-8.56.20-AM-712x320

Bruce Fenton, who’s one of the wealthiest Bitcoin traders, posted some advice on his Facebook wall.

He said if you want to contend with an empty-headed Hillary voter just say the following:

Screen-Shot-2015-04-14-at-8.46.22-AM

Of course, inside of that statement are pretty lofty and heady concepts most Hillary voters won’t be able to understand.

If only they could understand Hillary will only increase the size of government to such a point that’ll implode and bring the United States to ruin.

Do you think that’s too much for the average Hillary voter to comprehend?

Spain: Barcelona’s Would-Be Beheaders

Wow ! this is an extra special brand of psychopathic killers, they let women they capture live so they can sell them into sex slavery. 

Those who go to commit jihad against the U.S. and coalition partners must have their passports immediately revoked, thus keeping them in the sand land of their choice with no option for legal return.

The current administration, filled with Muslims and Muslim sympathizers must be removed and the Republican nomination for the White House must win the presidency for there to be noticeable change.
