D.C. wants to remove Civics from school ciriculum- Now it starts – the rape of the American Republic! It is time to Take Back America!

Posted by devildog6771 on January 23, 2013


Bit by bit Obama and his henchman have been chipping away at our rights.  Meanwhile the National Education Association has been working on destroying our republic from the inside since ita inception!  Until this president, socialists, Marxist, and Communists in America were more subtle with their efforts. This has been an on going battle in America since our founding. Just look up our history. Do the research. Don’t read their doctored history. Read our real History. I think Obama has been a test case. in the seventies, the Democratic Socialists of America knew Americans hated anything to do with Communism. After Russia collapsed in the 80’s, they began a gradual all out attack on our American Republic. First they re-wrote their ideology using terms like progressive that sound so much like a positive  term. Then they began to get elected into local, state and federal government, PTA’s, civic organizations, and anything else, including their biggest ally, the unions, and slowly. dogmatically began to permeate every aspect of our America we all love and revere. Now Obama has been “fundamentally” changing America through his Executive orders and the actions of the “Do nothing Congress”!

Four years of using every dictate of Saul Alinsky’s ” Rules for Radicals,” ans Cass Sunstein’s, “Knudge” have got the Democrats salivating and the Republicans left licking the ‘family jewels,” wondering “what the heck has happened in the country. One by one the money of traitors like the Soros Machine has trashed and frightened off every viable and decent opposition candidate, case in point Sara Palin and West.  Anything or anyone who can frighten off Palin has to be formidable. All we have left is is the much attacked and still struggling ‘Tea Party!” WAKE UP PEOPLE. MID TERMS ARE COMING. NOW IS THE TIME TO LET ALL THESE TRAITORS KNOW WE ARE WILLING TO FIGHT FOR OUR REPUBLIC. VOTE THEM ALL OUT. START WITH THE MILK SOP BOOHNER.  If Pelosi ir Reed are up for re-election, help motivate a mass movement to throw them out on their commie or “socialist behinds.” Show them they aren’t infallible like they believe. Both are so arrogant they are pathetic! Vote out every member of the Progressive Caucus. – Let’s clean up the Congress. Any Republicans they lean in their direction get rid of them too!! 

Be prepared for a fight. Don’t believe for a minute they will roll over the way Boehner and the current Republicans have done. It wouldn’t hurt to start cleaning up your local and state politics. Be prepared for the unions to jump on the band wagon. They may even become violent.

Think I am over stating or exaggerating, look at the Wisconsin elections and the subsequent fallout. Come on people, let’s take back America, one damn election at a time, one state at a time, or whatever works. Just don’t let them win. Call your Representatives and insist that Civics be taught in all schools. How will kids learn about being responsible voters if they don’t have Civics? At home start teaching your kids about the real American Republic. Don’t just give in and accept defeat. Show Obama and the rest of his followers America won’t cave or be an easy conquest!!

Margaret Thatcher – The Iron Lady

Posted by devildog6771 on May 13, 2012

If you haven’t seen the new movie about Margaret Thatcher you don’t know what you’re missing. The acting was superb. The storyline was awesome and very moving. I have always admired Thatcher and used her as an example when I talk to idiots who feel women can’t handle leadership roles in nations. The movie takes an unusual perspective. It was nicely done and did justice to Mrs. Thatcher, probably the last British leader with any backbone now that those succeeding her let the country be over run by socialist and Muslim extremism! Never thought to see such an end for England. Hitler and many outside enemies tried to bring her to her knees without success. Now a bunch of immigrant  radicals have succeeded where even Hitler and Napoleon failed. multiculturalism has torn down nations that existed for centuries. How short-sighted people are!

 

It is absurd to go to another nation and expect that nation to welcome you with open arms and tear down the fabric of its culture to make one feel welcome. I like that old saying, “when in Rome do as the Romans!” I think there is much wisdom in that remark. The are jokes throughout the extremists worlds that Democracies are the easiest nations to assimilate or take over. One only has to use that nation’s own laws against itself. When that enemy comes to a Democracy, he/she already knows our laws better than those of us born and raised here or in those free nations. Where is it written that free nations must be stupid and self-destructive in their efforts to assimilate immigrants? Personally, if an immigrant doesn’t like it here then he/she can go back home and work to fix their “Country” and leave our the hell alone!

 

Well I have veered off topic. Sorry! Lol. Guess I hit a nerve. Back to the movie. If you get a chance go see, “Iron Lady.” You won’t regret it. Right now it is #1 on able. Awesome! After, actress, Meryl Streep is excellent as Mrs. Thatcher. I found myself having to remember that she wasn’t the real, Thatcher!

Judicial activism and judicial restraint – Judicial Review! Obama’s Challange and the “COTUS'” response!! Who is right?? What is your opinion?

Inscription on the wall of the Supreme Court Building from Marbury v. Madison, in which Chief Justice John Marshall outlined the concept of judicial review. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I am sure we are all familiar with the feud developing between the President and the US Courts. In my opinion, the President openly challenged the authority High Court‘s authority to do its job, specifically in this case with regard to questions over “the legalities, etc. of the courts practicing ” judicial review and judicial restraint” when the members are non elected officials! Here we go again;  another “jab” at the archaic” nature of our “Constitution!” In my opinion, Obama will not be satisfied until this country is totally collapsed top to bottom!!??!! He has successfully put a strangle-hold on Congress as he legislates from the White House hiding behind Executive Privilege! He has taken control of our governmental organizations and agencies. Now he is trying to set up a civilian police force as competent as our military!!?? Why would he need such an organization when each state has their own guard foe national and state emergencies? He’s trying to take over the electoral college.–Haven’t heard in a while how that effort is going. If he succeeds, there will be no election and He will serve four more years! No one can stop him or at lest so he thinks. Apparently Judge Jerry Smith, 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, disagrees. He has given the DOJ 48 hours to submit a “3” page responsw, single apaced, explaining the DOJ’s views on the separation os power’s between the Executive Branch and the Courts!! Gutsy move!!

Listen up Mr. President, you forgot about , “WE the People!” Did you really think we considered the Constitution obsolete and up for grabs? Read these words and then tell me do you really believe you will divide our nation by any means aand successfully “conquor” us? I suggest you read them several times:

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” It further tells every American and everyone else worldwide what our Constitutional goals and purposes are! Neither the Preamble nor the Constitution indicate that the hearts and minds of men and women would automatically adhere or live by these guiding principles.  However, through our Congress and our Courts, using guidelines clearly defined in our Constitution, have successfully, over time, clarified or fixed  those issues or laws which did or do not clearly define a right or law which did not effectively  work as intended or removed human error in interpretation o f said laws” Is the Constitution perfect? No! But, it has built in safeguards to allow necessary changes to occur or be made. Our judges have over the decades for the most part all done excellent jobs of holding our legislators to the intent and purpose of the Constitution as promised in these words””We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”.

Those words have meaning to every American in this great nation! “We the people”, doesn’t say we white people or we black people, it says, ” We the people of the United States.” Though most blacks were not free at the time, nor were the American Indians directly affected by those words, they now apply to all Americans. as they always have except when men ignored those great words and applied their own selfish interests above the law of the land! “in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity”, these words are pretty clear in their meaning. They don’t directly relate themselves to “class, nor race, creed ,or religious affiliation or lack thereof!  “do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. During time of threats or war, all Americans defended our nation Since our war for Independence in 1775-6 all races, creeds and people of various national origins have defended America with their lives. From the code crackers in WWII to the Bedford Boys, to the Tuskagee Airman, America has been valiantly and bravely defended by all races,  colors, creeds. Are we a perfect nation, hell no, we are a living, evolving nation, we are the world melting pot, the worlds currs according to some 18th or 19th century European  philosphers. We managed to do here in America what no other nation has ever successfully come close to copying, the absorption of  a mixing bowl of people from all walks of life into one functioning society or nation. Many try to tear us down, none can show us anything better to date!! We may appear pompous and arrogant at times, we are!
In her poem The New Colossus, Emma Lazarus created what stood for years as an American credo. You know the words: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…” The words of the poem were engraved on a bronze plaque hung in the Statue of Liberty museum 20 years after her death. The Statue was a gift to the United States from France as an offering of peace. It stands to this day as a monument to personal freedom and liberties all over the world. and will continue to do so for many more decades and millions of immigrants unless Obama’s administration wins reelection and the left successfully tears down America.

Here is some information I found at ANSWERS.COM which addresses the questions surrounding “judicial activism and judicial restraint”.

Oxford Guide to the US Government: judicial activism and judicial restraint

Article 3, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution says, “The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” Article 3, Section 2, provides that the “judicial Power shall extend to all Cases in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority.” Thus, the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court have the power to interpret the Constitution, and laws and treaties of the United States, in response to cases that come before the Court.

In 1796, in Ware v. Hylton, the Supreme Court held a Virginia statute void because it violated a 1783 peace treaty with Great Britain. In Marbury v. Madison (1803) the Supreme Court declared a federal law unconstitutional. These cases established the power of judicial review in the Supreme Court—the power to declare acts of the state governments and of the legislative and executive branches of the federal government null and void if they violate provisions of the Constitution. Since the early 19th century, debate has continued over how federal judges should use their powers. Should they practice restraint, or should they actively expand the scope of the Constitution in their interpretations of law, treaties, and constitutional provisions?

Judicial restraint

Those who advocate judicial restraint believe the courts should uphold all acts of Congress and state legislatures unless they clearly violate a specific section of the Constitution. In practicing judicial restraint, the courts should defer to the constitutional interpretations of Congress, the President, and others whenever possible. The courts should hesitate to use judicial review to promote new ideas or policy preferences. In short, the courts should interpret the law and not intervene in policy-making.

Over the years eminent Supreme Court Justices such as Felix Frankfurter have called for judicial self-restraint. In West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943), Frankfurter said, “As a member of this Court I am not justified in writing my opinions into the Constitution, no matter how deeply I may cherish them. … It can never be emphasized too much that one’s own opinion about the wisdom or evil of a law should be excluded altogether when one is doing one’s duty on the bench.”

Judicial activism

Sometimes judges appear to exceed their power in deciding cases before the Court. They are supposed to exercise judgment in interpreting the law, according to the Constitution. Judicial activists, however, seem to exercise their will to make law in response to legal issues before the Court.

According to the idea of judicial activism, judges should use their powers to correct injustices, especially when the other branches of government do not act to do so. In short, the courts should play an active role in shaping social policy on such issues as civil rights, protection of individual rights, political unfairness, and public morality.

Chief Justice Earl Warren (who served from 1954 to 1969) and many members of the Warren Court, such as William O. Douglas, practiced judicial activism when they boldly used the Constitution to make sweeping social changes promoting such policies as school desegregation and to insure that all Americans had the opportunity to vote and to participate in U.S. society. In 1956 Justice Douglas wrote, “[T]he judiciary must do more than dispense justice in cases and controversies. It must also keep the charter of government current with the times and not allow it to become archaic or out of tune with the needs of the day.”

Arguments against judicial activism

Opponents of judicial activism argue that activist judges make laws, not just interpret them, which is an abuse of their constitutional power. The issue, they claim, is not whether social problems need to be solved but whether the courts should involve themselves in such problem solving. By making decisions about how to run prisons or schools, argue the critics of judicial activism, the courts assume responsibilities that belong exclusively to the legislative and executive branches of government.

Critics of judicial activism worry that court decisions that so freely “interpret” the meaning of the Constitution will undermine public confidence in and respect for the courts. Justice Byron R. White wrote in Bowers v. Hardwick (1986), “The Court is most vulnerable and comes nearest to illegitimacy when it deals with judge-made constitutional law having little or no cognizable [knowable] roots in the language or design of the Constitution.”

In addition, critics point out that federal judges are not elected; they are appointed for life terms. As a result, when judges begin making policy decisions about social or political changes society should make, they become unelected legislators. Consequently, the people lose control of the right to govern themselves. Further, unlike legislatures, courts are not supposed to be open to influence from interest groups. As a result, the courts may not hear different points of view on complex social issues. In legislatures, by contrast, elected officials are responsive to such interests.

Finally, opponents of judicial activism argue that judges lack special expertise in handling such complex tasks as running prisons, administering schools, or determining hiring policies for businesses. Judges are experts in the law, not in managing social institutions.

Opponents of judicial activism point to the constitutional principle of separation of powers (the division of power among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the federal government) and federalism (the division of power between the states and the federal government) to justify judicial restraint. They claim that judicial activism leads to unconstitutional intrusions of federal judicial power into the duties and powers of the executive and legislative branches of government and into the state governments. In Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), Justice John M. Harlan wrote, “Judicial self-restraint… will be achieved… only by continual insistence upon… the great roles that the doctrines of federalism and separation of powers have played in establishing and preserving American freedoms.”

Arguments for judicial activism Supporters of judicial activism argue that it is necessary to correct injustices and promote needed social changes. They view the courts as institutions of last resort for those in society who lack the political power to influence the other branches of government.

Supporters of judicial activism point out that the courts often step in only after governors and state legislatures have refused to do anything about a problem. For example, neither state legislatures nor Congress acted to ban racially segregated schools, trains, city buses, parks, and other public facilities for decades. Segregation might still exist legally if the Supreme Court had not declared it unconstitutional in 1954.

Supporters of judicial activism also mention that local courts and judges are uniquely qualified to ensure that local officials uphold the guarantees of the Constitution. In fact, with a few exceptions, district court judges have written most of the decisions affecting local institutions. For example, an Alabama judge took over the administration of the prison system in that state because he decided that the conditions in the prisons violated the Constitution’s prohibition of “cruel and unusual punishments.” Similarly, a Texas judge, a man born and raised in the Lone Star State, ordered sweeping changes in the Texas prison system. And a Massachusetts judge, himself a Boston resident, ordered massive school desegregation in that northern city. In each case, the district judge adopted an activist solution to a problem. But each pursued an activist course because he felt that only such measures would enforce the dictates of the Constitution.

Judicial activists argue that the courts do not create policy as legislatures do. Judges inevitably shape policy, however, as they interpret the law. And, they argue, interpreting the law is the job of the courts. Chief Justice Earl Warren put it this way: “When two [people] come into Court, one may say: ‘an act of Congress means this.’ The other says it means the opposite. We [the Court] then say it means one of the two or something else in between. In that way we are making the law, aren’t we?”

Finally, judicial activists argue that the framers of the Constitution expected the courts to interpret the Constitution actively in order to react to new conditions. As Justice Frank Murphy wrote in Schneiderman v. United States (1943), “The constitutional fathers, fresh from a revolution, did not forge a political strait-jacket for the generations to come.”

Many felt the President’s words were a threat or warning to  the SCOTUS. I took his remarks as a threat to our independence on a national level! He and his radical cronies will never stop trying to over-through America. When will traitors be treated as such instead of  simply appeasing them? We aew watching the “enemies from within” that I first started writing about over six year ago at work in America., no longer hiding!!??

2.)What is judicial restraint?

ANSWER:

‘Judicial restraint’ is the philosophy that judges and justices should defer to written legislation whenever possible, if it is not in conflict with the Constitution. A justice who uses judicial restraint tends to take a narrower view of the Constitution and does not attempt to broaden the definition of Amendments to fit a particular social or political agenda.

The opposite of judicial restraint is judicial activism.

Will the high court adhere to the Constitution or will it adhere to special interests and its own individual political persuasions?

Posted by devildog6771 on March 26, 2012


Today the Supreme Court will stat tackling Obama care appeals. Maybe our judges will surprise us all and follow the letter and intent of the Constitution instead of legislating from the bench.  If wisdom rules the high court will declare th whole thing unconstitutional as it is.

With all the clean air bills, the other clean this or that movements, might I suggest a clean act to rid corruption, at all levels and in all flavors from our government. It is long over due. Does anyone now when we last had an administration that was corruption free? Certainly not in my lifetime that I am aware of! I find that sad!!

Pull out of Afghanistan now!! America first! It is time to look out for ourselves!!

Posted by devildog6771 on March 18, 2012


en français Carte du monde entre 1920 et 1945 ...

Image via Wikipedia

Afghans are going  crazy over the burning of Korans used by the enemy to pass on information. Now one of our troops is accused of killing 16 innocent women and children! I’m sorry but; what’s the big deal? The enemy does both of these things on a daily basis! Sounds so cold when you put it like that doesn’t it.? Personally everything about these people sounds cold to me. Why don’t they start taking charge of their own country? Don’t they want a better life for their kids? Don’t they have any national pride.?

I think we should pull out now. Cut off all aid in all forms. Let them sink or swim, fish or cut bait! You can’t force people to want independence or freedom. Let’s toss their ungrateful behinds into the pond and see if  they will swim or drown. At least they will have chosen their own path.

Sounds so cold and heartless doesn’t it? Well, That’s how I feel right now. We have our own country to save. It’s quickly going down the tube.! While we’re at it, let’s stop all aid we send all over the world.  Let’s start looking out for number ! for a change, That’s what the rest of the world is doing.! Let the crooked UN do all the goody two shoes stuff. That might keep them so busy they can’t cause anymore problems worldwide as it continues its efforts for world control and domination!!  I see the UN following the same path as the old League of Nations! It has long out served it’s purpose.  It has become”self-aware” and now a “monster” has been let loose on the world. But, its own internal corruption will destroy it from the inside out.   Isn’t it amazing how all those wealthy folks and people and those “lofty super” folks have turned out to be in the end just like those they are so superior to, greedy, self-important, and corrupt.

I suppose it is true, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely!!

There are those among us in this nation that “talk the talk; “but, they do not “walk the walk.” They have no concept of real freedom and they probably never will. Sadly, in their arrogance, they assume they know better than anyone else what is best for our nation and the nations of the world. I feel sorry for them. They do not know what they are missing. They have no comprehension of real freedom.

Their lives are filled with mental illusions or perhaps delusions is a better word. They suffer from over indulgence of their own self-importance. They think they are smarter, wiser than the rest of us. They think only they are capable of saving us from ourselves.They think they have special aptitudes that give them special insight. Sadly, all they know about life is inside the cages of their own mind. Read the rest of this entry »
