Actions..DO..Speak Louder Than Mere Words…

I am sure that you have heard the expression, “actions speak louder than words.” The following video resonates the feelings of the majority of the people while the real “minority” rules this nation..


America; Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

This my friends is what we are facing today, a tyrant whose mission to dismantle the very core of our foundation..We are now celebrating our independence from the oppression and tyranny we once faced as a new nation..It is our duty to remember the blood that was lost in order for those of us today to enjoy the many freedoms that so many have taken for granted.
Many on the left like Sherly Crowe think that those of us involved with the Tea Party are clueless and don’t have the knowledge regarding what is going on within our borders…They sadly are deluded…We are AMERICAN’S….
We want to keep our rights as set forth in the constitution and the bill of rights..We want our guns to protect and defend….We don’t want to be robbed by a government whose only mission is to change us to a European style government..We are patriots….This is America…Land of the free and home to the brave…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Obama’s Recipe For Disaster: Health-Care

I received this in my in-box via my email and felt compelled to share it with my readers. It is a stunning review of a Constitutional lawyers conclusion on Obama’s health-care bill that was recently signed……..

A Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed health care bill. Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish. This is stunning!
Please take the time to read this and forward it out as you see fit.


The Truth About the Health Care Bills – Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act
of 2009.

I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard, or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals.

Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices.

Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare information in direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution , your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though. The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

Kentucky Bill: Campaign in Full Speed Mode

I think that we can most assuredly say,
Bill Johnson’s campaign is full speed underway.
As a combat Naval officer he knows just what to do,
To protect and defend this nation for me and for you.
You can get his personally recorded US Constitution on-line,
And listen for yourself to his Reagan conservative bottom line.
You see, it’s the citizens’ owners manual, the seeds of our liberties’ tree.
The Bill of Rights comes directly next and is for our Democracy a written lifetime warranty.
His opponents scoff, they snarl, they even stomp and whine,
For they know sure enough in their hearts,
The will never live up to the Johnson straight Constitutional line

There was a debate this past Saturday in McCracken County in Kentucky that featured three of the top contenders for the retiring senate seat of Sen.Jim Bunning. From all the feed-back that I have received Bill Johnson’s campaign has turned it up a notch and is now bringing on the heat! He is up against Dr. Rand Paul and Secretary of State Trey Grayson. Paul is a Libertarian that is co-opting the Tea Party movement claiming to support smaller government, less taxes etc. but clearly is only trying to bring to Kentucky what his father Ron Paul tried to do in the ’08 presidential elections and the citizens of Kentucky are far smarter than given credit for. Having personally been attacked by members of the Campaign for Liberty by merely asking that my name be removed on their mailing list!
I wasn’t able to attend the debate but have been kept informed with comments and emails about how Johnson stood firm on his conservative platform, holding proudly the Constitution. This, for me, resonates; HONOR-DUTY-COUNTRY three very strong characteristics I look for when selecting a candidate to support.
There was a lot of rumbling throughout the state by one site or another but I suggest you read “Paul, Grayson snipe at each other“, the comments are actually better than the post itself and is a good indicator of the sign of the times here in the Kentucky political scene. My all time favorite comment on my site about this event has should be shared once again, it pertains to the “whining” and “foot-stomping” of one Rand Paul…

Let’s describe the opening shall we…Announcer, First opening statement will be Dr. Rand Paul. Then Secretary of State Trey Grayson followed by Bill Johnson.

Dr. Paul opens, Whaahh! I am a Pro Life supporter! Whahhh! I am too a Reagan Conservative. I want an apology Whahh!
Let’s get real here people is this the level of Paul’s pain threshold in the political arena? This guy is moaning like a little twit! Like we need another cry baby in the US Senate.
Mr. Grayson, Opened with a standard opening and didn’t whine.
Mr. Johnson. Opened with a standard intro as well not whining or pouting either!

Back to Dr. Paul, He rudely coughed into his mic during Mr. Johnson’s time to comment without saying so much as excuse me or I am very sorry. Again plain rude.
Through out the Debate Dr. Paul carried himself poorly, rolling his eyes, leaning against the lectern shifting positions regularly. All while the others candidates stood politely not displaying any body language indicating their wish too be elsewhere as did Dr. Paul. At the end Dr. Paul could only be described as having “Tursely given his fellow Senate candidates a brief hand shake and then almost tripping over himself to exit the stage to the waiting arms of one would presume too be his mother given his cry baby outbursts.
Bill Johnson is the stand out winner in this debate, no matter if you counted signs going out the door or the applause meter or if you listened and watched these three candidates present their case for why they should get your vote.
I was impressed with Grayson, even though I have said on more than a few occasions I would not vote for him for anything. He reeks if the establishment. Last night I changed my opinion of Trey a little. For you Rand Paul Fans I was in that camp last Summer and part of the fall. I am looking for the best man for the US Senate not an image.
At end let me describe where the candidates decided too be. Paul and Grayson where in the auditorium with a few big supporters and the members of whatever press were there. Not the everyday folks. As the majority of people were leaving Bill Johnson was out in the “lobby” pressing the flesh and talking to the people. It was a great day for Bill Johnson

So I strongly urge you to get involved and donate what ever you can to support Johnson’s efforts. This can done by simply donating $5.00-$10.00 what ever you can to ensure that our true conservative values are truly represented not only for Kentucky but for all of America as well. You can send your donations here.

Like thieves in the night……

Like thieves in the night, the senate once again met once again at midnight on an early Monday morning to further ram their ideologies down the throats of the American public that clearly were against this bill. Did they listen to us? NO, they voted to further the need to destroy not only our foundation as a country but simply ignore the will of the American people. A call for a national strike is being called for January 20, 2010 to attempt to send yet another message to these “demigods.” Is this enough? In my most humble opinion the second American revolution has truly begun with the left firing the first shot at 1:01 am as the votes were being tallied. This is an outrage and we must not succumb to their will…We must do all in our power to vote these people out and bring back those who will govern as set forth in our Constitution and listen to the will of the people. Contact your senators, call 202-224-3121 and leave messages, emails and faxes..this isn’t over yet. But the ALARM has been sounded…this is a call for ACTION….

~Persevere and Prevail~

My friends over the past year we have seen our flag, our Constitution to be continually drawn through the mire of lies, deceit, and an attempt to change the very foundation of which our great country was founded upon. We have attended tea parties in our communities, town halls, which brought about contempt from those in DC to mock and demean us. We have rallied before the capital building, bringing millions to deliver a message to our representatives and senators only for that message to fall upon deaf ears. We have to persevere and prevail over these people that are intent on destroying our nation. We have seen how bribery with millions of dollars can buy votes, we have witnessed how threats of closing a strategic military base and changing the wording in this health-care reform bill regarding federally funded abortion has caused another “public servant” to succumb to the evilness of this administration. Prayer, yes…prayer is a most powerful weapon against evil and we should pray endlessly for deliverance from this tyrannical administration and those who align themselves with him, “The One.” However, while praying we must stand up for ourselves and defend what our constitutional rights, making phone calls to the senate, sending faxes and emails may be in vain. A call for ACTION is now, we must learn from our forefathers and once again join forces and defeat the reform that is being shoved down our throats. There was a time in America where the “majority” had a voice, but that voice is being stifled and the “minority” now rules. We cannot continue down this path for if we do, we will no longer recognize our great nation. The time is now, the present…we must not only pray…but we must persevere and prevail..for if we don’t…. we will have lost all that we hold dear………

Hey DC…NO Compromise……

We have been to Washington, you have heard us but yet we feel ignored. We will not be silenced, we will return. Glenn Beck is calling on us to join him at the feet of the Lincoln Monument. We will be there, we will bring our signs, our patriotism, our voices to be heard. We will not compromise, this is our Country, we want her back, we will no longer compromise what she stands for what she represents. Our Constitution clearly states,”We the people,” we are speaking, DC…We will defend, we will cast off the tyranny that now surround us. You are servants to the people, you are there to serve not dictate or misrepresent our constitution…You are hereby on notice……..
