Legislative Override of the Judiciary: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

Florida Representative Julio Gonzalez (R-District 74) has taken a bold position on judicial overreach. In an email Representative Gonzales writes:

With great regularity, we are witnessing the increasingly aggressive and activist posture of our nation’s judiciary.  This month, the issue came to a head with Judge James Robart’s extra-constitutional act of staying a significant portion of the President of the United States’ foreign policy initiative and the subsequent affirmation of that stay by the unabashedly activist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Those of us who value the restrictions placed upon government by the Constitution cannot help but worry over the implications of these unprecedented confrontational actions and the effects they will have upon our Republic.  Indeed, we are left with the troubling question of whether there is any solution to this latest assault upon the fabric of our Constitution.

But perhaps there is.

Last month, I filed a bill in the Florida House of Representatives [HR 121] that proposes a legislative override provision to Florida’s Constitution.  I also filed an accompanying memorial suggesting that Congress consider a similar addition to the United States Constitution.

To see why such a provision would be necessary, a review of our nation’s constitutional history regarding the judiciary is warranted.

Article III of the United Sates Constitution gave the courts “Judicial Power” over all cases and controversies arising out of the Laws of the United States and the Constitution, but it did not assign to the Supreme Court plenary authority regarding the constitutionality of laws.  This power was actually seized by the Supreme Court in its sentinel Marbury v. Madison decision of 1803.  In it, John Marshall singlehandedly declared,

“It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is.”

Consequently, any law the court determines is repugnant to the Constitution will be void.

Although the Congress of the day did not react to this action, by 1820, the consequences of the resulting change in the relationship between the three branches of government caught the attention of Thomas Jefferson who warned in a letter to Jarvis Williams,

“to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [would be] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”

The Civil War and its associated amendments set the stage for the fulfillment of Jefferson’s prognostications.  The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution included Due Process and Equal Protection clauses that would be subsequently employed by federal judges to force their will and power upon the states.  With the appointment of progressive judges during the twentieth century, the Supreme Court engaged in the laborious work of redefining the various passages of the Constitution in manners neither foreseen nor intended by the Framers.

With their new powers, the Supreme Court applied the First, Second, Fifth, Sixth, and Eighth Amendments to the states, provisions that were initially conceived to apply only to the federal government.  In so doing the federal Supreme Court was able to remove prayer from schools, remove religious symbols from public places, and restrict the manner in which adults prayed in public meetings.  Through its divined interpretation of privacy protections, the Court then imposed new abortion laws upon the states, removing what was traditionally a state-based body of law and placing it at the feet of the federal courts.  It also imposed requirements on the state’s death penalty laws, and removed the power of the states to enact term limits upon its congressional delegates and senators, among countless other power-hoarding engagements.

Each of these actions was the result of decisions made by unelected officials permanently sitting upon the nation’s benches that would forever change the fabric of the Constitution and of the nation.

And what recourse did the people possess to check the Supreme Court as it interpreted the Constitution in a manner inconsistent with their will?

Operationally, the answer, of course, is none. There is no amendment that will ever be passed to specifically overturn a Supreme Court opinion ruling that a crèche may not sit in a public building during Christmas; nor does Congress possess the authority to pass a law that would overrule the Court when the latter speaks on issues of constitutionality, even if the matter were so obvious to Congress that it would have unanimously voted against the ruling of the Court.

Clearly, the ability of the Court to craft a binding opinion on any subject that no one else could overturn is wholly inconsistent with the system of checks and balances the Framers crafted.  In fact, in the same 1820 letter to Jarvis, Jefferson observed, “The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”  Yet this is the situation in which we find ourselves today with the Supreme Court, both in the various states and within the federal government.

So how do we rectify this unchecked runaway judiciary?

Recognizing a similar threat to its democracy, Canada instituted Section 33 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom in 1982 to allow for a legislative override.  Under this provision, if a Canadian legislative body should find the opinion of the court inconsistent with the views of the electorate, the legislature could override or nullify the court’s ruling.  And Canada is not alone in its possession of such a provision.  Australia, Israel, and England, among other great democracies, allow their respective legislatures to override even the highest rulings of their courts.  The reason for this is self-explanatory: no one in a republic ought to have plenary authority on practically any policy matter affecting the country, much less on ones defining the nature its foundational document.  Doing so would not only mean subjecting that society to the despotic rule of one branch of government, but even more importantly, it would mean relinquishing control of the very fabric and ownership of its constitution to that group.

Recognizing this flaw in our national Constitution, I have crafted a proposed amendment that would permanently address this problem.  It reads:

Any law, resolution, or other legislative act declared void by the Supreme Court of the United States or any District Court of Appeal may be deemed active and operational, notwithstanding the court’s ruling, if agreed to by Congress pursuant to a joint resolution adopted by a sixty percent vote of each chamber within five years after the date that the ruling becomes final.  Such a joint resolution shall take effect immediately upon passage.

It is my concerted view that a legislative override provision, if enacted, would curtail activist judges.  Of equal importance, it would allow the people of the United States to take back control of their Constitution.  It would also force the people to engage the legislature in enacting rectifications to current laws that they see as objectionable or flawed, rather than run to the courts to impose their unconvincing will upon Americans.  In short, a legislative override provision to our Constitution would represent the clearest and most effective correction to the unchecked actions of an overzealous activist court.  Indeed, a legislative override provision would place our nation closest to the vision shared by President Washington in his Farewell Address when he said:

If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates.  But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this in one instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.

A legislative override provision would prevent such usurpations from taking place and would, ultimately, save our free government.

PROMISES TO KEEP: The ‘Law and Order’ President hits the ground running

During his campaign for the presidency Donald Trump frequently disdainfully scowled when he spoke about how most politicians were “All talk and no action.”

Candidate Trump promised that immigration would be a primary focus of his administration.

President Trump has indeed focused on multiple aspects of the immigration crisis that go well beyond building a wall along the U.S./Mexican border.

His selection of Senator Jeff Sessions to be his Attorney General was the best possible choice for this important position.

Sessions had chaired the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.

Consider that on February 25, 2016 that subcommittee conducted a hearing on the topic, “The Impact of High-Skilled Immigration on U.S. Workers.”

When the Obama administration conducted meetings for “Stakeholders” on the immigration issue corporate leaders were invited to attend as were immigration lawyers representing illegal aliens and special interest groups that advocate for illegal aliens.

However, no one in attendance represented the “average American.”

Even the union leaders representing the Border Patrol, ICE agents and the adjudications officers were barred from participating in those meetings.

On February 9, 2017 President Trump held a news conference in the Oval Office to conduct a public swearing in ceremony of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Immediately after Vice President Pence swore in Jeff Sessions, President Trump signed three executive orders:

  1. Presidential Executive Order on Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking
  2. Presidential Executive Order on Preventing Violence Against Federal, State, Tribal, and Local Law Enforcement Officers
  3. Presidential Executive Order on a Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety

President Trump promised to be the “Law and Order” President and he has certainly hit the ground running.

His executive order to prevent violence against law enforcement officers is tangible evidence of his keeping his promise to look out for law enforcement officers.

Let’s next consider how he articulated the purpose for his executive order on enforcing federal laws to attack transnational criminal organizations:

Section 1.  Purpose.  Transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations, including transnational drug cartels, have spread throughout the Nation, threatening the safety of the United States and its citizens.  These organizations derive revenue through widespread illegal conduct, including acts of violence and abuse that exhibit a wanton disregard for human life.  They, for example, have been known to commit brutal murders, rapes, and other barbaric acts.

These groups are drivers of crime, corruption, violence, and misery.  In particular, the trafficking by cartels of controlled substances has triggered a resurgence in deadly drug abuse and a corresponding rise in violent crime related to drugs.  Likewise, the trafficking and smuggling of human beings by transnational criminal groups risks creating a humanitarian crisis.  These crimes, along with many others, are enriching and empowering these organizations to the detriment of the American people.

A comprehensive and decisive approach is required to dismantle these organized crime syndicates and restore safety for the American people.

That statement underscores his understanding of how important immigration law enforcement and border security are to combatting transnational criminals.

What is unfathomable is how many politicians who have to understand this issue have opposed Trump at every opportunity.  Only they can explain their conduct.  However, I have to conclude that those who would oppose President Trump’s efforts to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws are siding with the cartels and transnational criminal organizations.

This certainly apply to mayors of “Sanctuary Cities” and governors who want to create “Sanctuary States.”

Sanctuary Cities should be called “Magnet Cities” because they attract criminal aliens including members of transnational gangs, fugitives and international terrorists.

The politicians’ claims that by shielding vulnerable illegal aliens from immigration law enforcement they would be willing to come forward when they fall victim to criminals is a blatant lie that ignores that Sanctuary Cities Endanger – National Security and Public Safety.

Sanctuary policies attract more violent criminals who are likely victimize members of the ethnic immigration communities.  However the false narrative serves to vilify valiant ICE agents who go in harms way every day they report for duty, seeking to protect national security and innocent lives.

Statutorily, U Visas are available for victims of human trafficking and other crimes if they come forward and assist with law enforcement efforts to apprehend the criminals.  Similar visa programs are available for illegal aliens who provide assistance to criminal investigations.

If those duplicitous politicians really wanted to assist illegal alien victims of crimes they would bring them to immigration offices and urge them to cooperate with the investigations of their criminal assailants.

That way everyone would win.

But then the politicians would not get their campaign contributions from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a host of special interest groups, and who know who else, who are literally and figuratively making out like bandits by exploiting the immigration system.

In continuing to consider Trump’s executive order on trafficking I call your attention to two of the key elements of this executive order are proverbial “music to my ears.”

(e)  develop strategies, under the guidance of the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, to maximize coordination among agencies — such as through the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), Special Operations Division, the OCDETF Fusion Center, and the International Organized Crime Intelligence and Operations Center — to counter the crimes described in subsection (a) of this section, consistent with applicable Federal law; and

(f)  pursue and support additional efforts to prevent the operational success of transnational criminal organizations and subsidiary organizations within and beyond the United States, to include prosecution of ancillary criminal offenses, such as immigration fraud and visa fraud, and the seizure of the implements of such organizations and forfeiture of the proceeds of their criminal activity.

I speak from extensive experience when I say that this task force approach to identifying, investigating and dismantling international drug trafficking organizations is extremely effective.  I spent the final ten years of my career with the INS as a Senior Special Agent assigned to the OCDETF program in New York City.

As for immigration fraud and visa fraud, these two issues are elements of “Extreme vetting” that Trump promised when he campaigned for the presidency.

On May 18, 2004 I testified at a hearing by the House Immigration Subcommittee on the topic of Pushing the Border Out on Alien Smuggling: New Tools and Intelligence Initiatives that addressed the issues of visa fraud and also the strategy of providing visas for illegal alien informants.

On May 20, 1997 I testified before the House Immigration Subcommittee on the topic, Visa Fraud And Immigration Benefits Application Fraud.

That hearing was predicated on two deadly terror attacks carried out in 1993 at the CIA and first World Trade Center Bombing.

In one way or another, all of those involved with those attacks had gamed the visa system and/or the immigration benefits program.

The Clinton administration’s failures to address these vulnerabilities of visa fraud and immigration fraud that enabled these two deadly attacks to be conducted on American soil literally and figuratively, left the door open to the deadly terror attacks of 9/11.

The report, “9/11 and  Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States” included this excerpt found on pages 46 and 47:

In addition, Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the attack, and Ahmad Ajaj, who was able to direct aspects of the attack despite being in prison for using an altered passport, traveled under aliases using fraudulent documents. The two of them were found to possess five passports as well as numerous documents supporting their aliases: a Saudi passport showing signs of alteration, an Iraqi passport bought from a Pakistani official, a photo-substituted Swedish passport, a photo-substituted British passport, a Jordanian passport, identification cards, bank records, education records, and medical records.6

“Once terrorists had entered the United States, their next challenge was to find a way to remain here. Their primary method was immigration fraud. For example, Yousef and Ajaj concocted bogus political asylum stories when they arrived in the United States. Mahmoud Abouhalima, involved in both the World Trade Center and landmarks plots, received temporary residence under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers (SAW) program, after falsely claiming that he picked beans in Florida.” Mohammed Salameh, who rented the truck used in the bombing, overstayed his tourist visa. He then applied for permanent residency under the agricultural workers program, but was rejected. Eyad Mahmoud Ismail, who drove the van containing the bomb, took English-language classes at Wichita State University in Kansas on a student visa; after he dropped out, he remained in the United States out of status.

In the years since the terror attacks of 9/11 more terror attacks were carried out in the United States while other attacks, for one reason or another, failed.  Most of those attacks involved aliens who committed visa fraud and/or immigration fraud.

Trump’s executive orders address our immigration vulnerabilities and Attorney General Sessions will provide the legal horsepower.

All Americans should be thrilled that this President is keeping his promises.

Does President Trump know he can cap the refugee program today?

tillerson-and-trump

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and President Donald J. Trump.

You have surely heard all the numbers flying around this morning about how many refugees from the seven originally banned countries have entered the U.S.  The numbers vary somewhat based on what day (and even time of day) one checks the State Department data base at Wrapsnet.

We heard a couple of days ago from Stephen Dinan at the Washington Times that 77% of the refugees admitted in the week following Judge Robarts’ decision are from the banned countries.

By the way, when I did numbers yesterday I went back to the day after the EO was issued (January 28th until yesterday) and the percentage was less than 50% from the 7 originally banned countries, so in recent days the Department of State has rushed in more from the seven targeted countries increasing the percentage.

Trying to recreate Dinan’s numbers for 2/3 to 2/9 I get 75% not 77%.  But, that small discrepancy doesn’t matter because it depends on when in the day on the 9th or even the 8th Dinan ran numbers.

But, that is not the point of this post!  

Just this morning Donald Trump tweeted that 72% came from those 7 terrorist-infested countries.

screenshot-276

Does the President not know that it is the UN and his own State Department (DOS) admitting them? Does he not know that he has the power to reduce the cap (the ceiling) on the entire program right now?  He did reduce Obama’s proposal of 110,000 to 50,000, but he could go lower and stop this rush in from these countries.
As of today we are at 34,430! Cap it now at 35,000!

(35,000 is not that far off of Bush’s post 9/11 number of 39,554, see here)

This reduction, across the board, was not addressed in the recent court wrangling because Trump clearly has the power! (LOL! Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Jimmy Carter gave it to him in 1980!).

Of course a lowering of the ceiling won’t stop all those coming in from the seven terrorist hotspots, but the majority of those entering the US from Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Iran are through the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

Where is Tillerson? Where is Trump’s White House staff? Would someone tell him!

After all, the majority of Americans are on Trump’s side with this EO.

This post is filed in our Trump Watch! category as well as ‘refugee statistics’ and ‘where to find information.’

American Carnage

The recent discussion on an “appearance of impropriety” once again exposed leftist incompetence. To compare the Trump Organization with the Clinton Foundation is an equivalent of comparing apples to weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Yet, the subject of the Clinton Foundation was widely discussed in my latest book Socialist Lies: from Stalin to the Clintons, Obamas, and Sanders. The topic of this column is the entire anti-American Left that constantly betrays the American Republic by being soft on the Soviets and by acting against the American interests for decades. I’ll convey an elaborate and comprehensive explanation of the left’s politics and make expose a predicament in America vis-a-vis Russia in the 21st century.

So, the November 2016 election-marathon, unexpectedly for many, ended up with President Donald J. Trump. His victory produced an earthquake in the Democrats’ camp. The day after his inauguration the streets of our cities were choked with waves of leftist women in protest against President Trump. What a spectacle it was – hysteria combined with vulgar-arrogant incompetence was showcased in some women’s speeches! Where did those provocateurs come from? They put us, the emigrants from the former Socialist countries, in remembrance of the ideology of Soviet Fascism, the regime we had escaped. President Trump has been demonized as evil incarnate, Hitler, and Nazi. Winston Churchill was right predicting that the fascists will say that their opposition would act like fascists in the future. We saw it the day after President Trump was inaugurated and we weren’t alone.

Rush Limbaugh on January 23, 2017, also warned us, the people who voted for Trump, to be ready. Leftists in the women’s march had begun a war to bring about the impeachment of President Trump. Rush Limbaugh has used the term Femi-Nazi describing the women’s march. Rush was echoing my idea of Soviet Fascism which I have expressed in my four books and numerous columns. My prediction is following:

We can expect a cascade of protests, demonstrations, and complaints by the DNC leaders, who collaborated with Russia during all eight years of Obama’s Administration.  Inflamed protests is their method of defense.

The Ideology of Soviet Fascism

I am a child of Stalinism, I lived through the regime half of my adult life and I called Stalinism: Soviet Fascism. I am also a former Soviet defense attorney and a current writer, who has been writing about Stalin’s Soviet Fascism that infiltrated all strata of the American political and economic systems for the last eight years. As a matter of fact, Socialism and Fascism are twin brothers, two sides of the same coin, the brutal force of compulsion. The recent history left two words of infamy in our inerasable memory—Hitler’s Gestapo and Stalin’s KGB. That agency is the major “achievement” of Stalinism.  Now there is a KGB government in Russia today.

Have you seen Vladimir Putin singing with pride a Soviet song in the company of young people? The song is about the traces the Soviet people left on the future mankind. Yes, I would like to show you the documents that had been prepared by the Soviets for the future of mankind.  Putin is tied to Stalin’s global domination ideology by umbilical cord and history. Stalin’s idea of one world government under the Kremlin’s auspices did not die with the demise of the Soviet Union, because it has been a major agenda of the KGB for all subsequent years and leadership. The ideology translated into expansion, invasion, and occupation of Eastern Europe. The Warsaw Pact testified to that. In 1955, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev gave the following idea to the members of the Communist Party—drug addiction and narcotics trafficking should be viewed as a strategic operation that would directly weaken the enemy.

The effect of drugs was analyzed by scientists from the Soviet Academy of Sciences and the conclusions were that drug trafficking would be extremely effective and that the most vulnerable countries would be the United States, Canada, France, and West Germany. This study was approved in 1955 by the Soviet Defense Council working in concert with the KGB. It was the first formal Soviet decision to launch narcotics trafficking against the bourgeoisie and especially against the American capitalists. Here is the first part of the document:

“Soviet strategy for revolutionary war is a global strategy… narcotics strategy is a sub-component of this global strategy. …First was the increased training of leaders for the revolutionary movements—the civilian, military, and intelligence cadres. The founding of Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow is an example of one of the early actions taken to modernize the Soviet revolutionary leadership training. The second step was the actual training of terrorists. Training for international terrorism actually began as ‘fighters for liberation’…The third step was international drug and narcotics trafficking. Drugs were incorporated into the revolutionary war strategy as a political and intelligence weapon to use against the bourgeois society and as a mechanism for recruiting agents of influence around the world.” Following the order, the KGB established a drug-cartel in South America, which is still drugging America today…

If the first part of the document gives you the big picture of your future, I’d like you to remember forever the last six words “agents of influence around the world.” Those agents infiltrated all strata of our society from the Democrat Party to commerce, from Academia to Media, from Intel to the educational system, and from the State Department to our Congress. You often meet them, you just haven’t known who they are. And today you are probably surprise watching protesters against Trump around the world… Don’t be surprised, it has been prepared for you—the agenda is to unleash chaos and confusion, to stop development of Western civilization. Moreover, I’d like to show you the pace it has been spread around the world. Here is a proud Soviet statistic:

The Process of Global Development of the Communist Movement

Year      Countries with active communist parties       # of communists globally

1917                              1                                                      400,000

1928                              46                                                    1.7 million

1939                              69                                                    4.2 million

1946                              78                                                  20.0 million

1960                              87                                                  35.0 million

1969                              88                                                  50.0 million

1980                              94                                          over 75.0 million

The above table is taken from my book titled Socialist Lies: From Stalin to the Clintons, Obamas, and Sanders, Xlibris, 2016, p.47.

The document is taken from my book titled What is Happening to America? The Hidden Truth of Global Destruction, Chapter 7, WW III: Recruitments and Drugs, Infiltration and Assassinations, Xlibris, 2012

Yes, I have been writing about an ongoing WW III for the last twenty years. The war was waged by Soviet Fascism against Western civilization across the world and especially against America. It is a multi-faceted war with different fronts from ideology and philosophy to sabotage, obstruction, and application of force. One of the first targets had been Classic Liberalism—the ideological basis of Western civilization. This foundation was irradiated by Soviet Fascism in the 20th century—Harry Truman’s Democratic Party was transformed to the party of Soviet Socialism, which I called Soviet Fascism. There are no more liberals, we are dealing with leftists, fascists or charlatans like Hitler or Stalin. The rest of the history is going on before your eyes. I hope you understand that Saul Alinsky, Marshal Davis, and George Soros (sponsoring 180 leftist entities), Michael Moore, and thousands of other actors, are the main force leading anti-Trump propaganda to paralyze the Republican Congress…

The Policy of Divide and Conquer

When you read all four parts of the Soviet Defense Council document of 1955, you will realize why I changed the term Soviet Socialism to Soviet Fascism. A decent person who knows the danger coming to America has a duty to warn Americans and call a spade a spade. I did. Following the nature of document, the KGB created the mechanism of the long-term strategy of the war in the 1960s. To grasp the policy of Divide and Conquer against America, please read the pamphlet that I cited earlier, in my previous books; the Black Liberation Army Coordinating Committee’s Message to the Black Movement: A Political Statement from the Black Underground.  It was published officially in 1972. I called the brochure produced by the KGB in concert with the Soviet Ideological Department–Communist Manifesto for Black Communities. It brainwashed and poisoned many minds of black youngsters. Read it to see where violence is coming from for the last 3-4 black generations in America.

Just think and research the root causes and the history of the black movement since the 1960s and you’ll be able to see how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together to show the KGB’s activities. You’ll also understand the nature of Black Lives Matter and the recent event in Chicago when four young blacks tortured a mentally deficient white boy. Do you remember Hitler-jugent boys torturing Jewish youngsters in Germany of the 1930s? We are dealing with two major elements of Fascism—race and politics.

The recent riots in UC Berkeley vividly illustrated the idea of fascism against our First Amendment rights. Have you seen professional members of the mob dressed in black, wearing helmets and covering their faces, while setting up a fire, smashing windows, burning property in the best tradition of German Nazis? There were definite signs of fascist violence, politically executed by the comrade-socialists under leftist leadership like had been done by longtime political organizer Robert Creamer, who plotted to stir violence at Trump rallies. The riots in UC Berkeley also remind me of anti-Semitic pogroms in Russia. Watch the battle-spectacle in our Congress. Like parliamentary machinations of the Bolsheviks in the Russian Duma, where they dismantled a Provisional Government and proclaimed the First Socialist Revolution of Russia in 1917, leftist-activists are trying to destroy Trump’s presidency. Stalin’s devoted disciples exposed themselves in America as well. Maybe it is time for the Congress to establish a committee on UN-American activities???!

If you read Stalin’s prediction for America, presented in Socialist Lies, you will grasp the meaning of the ideology of Soviet Fascism, spread to the West by Stalin’s devoted disciples. Blacks in America have some resemblance to the Muslim world, which has not progressed much since the seventh century. This resemblance is very important as Stalin’s ideology and strategy have been applied to all minorities within Russia and outside the country. I showed it in Socialist Lies discussing Soviet Fascism in Chapter 25. All factors mentioned by me, reinforce one another. Only actual knowledge can solve the problem of the 21st century—both the blacks and the Radical Islamist are indoctrinated with the totalitarian ideology of Soviet Fascism. That was done by one of Stalin’s devoted disciple Chairman of the KGB 1968-1982—Yuri Andropov. Listen to what Ion Mihai Pacepa, a former highest ranking officer of the KGB defected to U.S. said:

“KGB chairman Yuri Andropov[i] in February 1972 laughed to me about the Yankee gullibility for celebrities. We’d outgrown Stalinist cults of personality, but those crazy Americans were still naïve enough to revere national leaders. We would make Arafat into just such a figurehead and gradually move the PLO closer to power and statehood. Andropov thought that Vietnam weary Americans would snatch at the smallest sign of conciliation to promote Arafat from terrorist to statesman in their hopes for peace.” – “The KGB’s Man,” The Wall Street Journal, September 22, 2003.

Here is the second conversation Pacepa had with Andropov:

“In 1972 the Kremlin decided to turn the whole Islamic world against Israel and the U.S. As KGB Chairman, Yuri Andropov told me a billion adversaries could inflict far greater damage on America that could a few millions. We needed to instill a Nazi-style hatred for Jews throughout the Islamic world, and to turn this weapon of the emotions into a terrorist bloodbath against Israel and its main supporter the United States. No one within the American/Zionist sphere of influence should any longer feel safe.  – Russian Footprints, by Ion Mihai Pacepa, National Review Online, August 24, 2008.

Don’t be surprised by raising Anti-Semitism in the world—WW III is carrying out all the attributes of Soviet Fascism, Anti-Semitism is the main one. Besides, an expansion in Ukraine continues, people are being killed every day there. Also pay attention to Russia’s aggressive behavior in the Arctic zone to widen its parameters of influence in 2017. Our Secretary of Defense called it correctly “offensive steps.” Russia’s meddling in our election has been obvious since 1972. To get a detail information, just read my book What is Happening to America? Xlibris, 2012. Yet, our Electoral College system has never been infiltrated by Russia, but it has been abused by the Democrats. The election of Barack Obama in 2012 was stolen from Mitt Romney—dead people and illegal aliens were voting, and cyber machinations took place in several states, including Pennsylvania where 58 precincts did not have one vote for Romney…

The Creeping or Crawling Coup de état Against the American Republic

It is not a coincidence that a discussion on “Russian hacking” and Memo-Dossier on Trump came at the same time: in fact, the two are inextricably connected—both produced by the agency known to you as the KGB to help Hillary.  This is the reason I have been writing about the Kremlin, Putin, and ideology of Soviet Fascism the last twenty years and about Stalin’s Political Correctness for the last eight.

“A former Defense Department official under the Obama administration says there is potential for a military coup to remove President Donald Trump from power.” Minutemen News.com, February 3, 2027, It wasn’t news to me, I have been writing about a creeping or crawling coup dé etat for the last eight years. I just called it Obama/Putin joint venture and named it Destruction of the American Republic. I came to this realization after listening some of Obama’s speeches—the resemblance with Stalin’s speeches stunned me, giving a clear vision of a man—a Comrade-Socialist, a community-organizer, who created very rapidly his own cult of personality, where nobody dared to criticize him. The man doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism. The joint venture with Putin was not a coincidence—Obama’s presidency was aimed at destruction of the American Republic. A statement of a former Defense Department official is not a coincidence either—a result of constant politicization of Military, Intel, Judiciary, and Media by Obama.

The destruction of the American Republic was the objective of Stalin’s Doctrine and a major aim of WW III. It was Stalin, who in order to achieve the objectives married Islam with ideology of Socialism/Communism. However, the policy and actions had taken place first outside our borders—the Middle East was invaded and infiltrated. President Obama by implementing American transformation to Socialism on our soil has joined us to the enemy in WW III, widened the destruction and tripled the harm imposed to the American Republic. Moreover, discussing the issues, we should remember that all terrorists groups were established, armed, and coordinated by Russia through the connection of the Muslim Brotherhood with the KGB and GRU, shown and described in Socialist Lies

The Obama/Putin joint venture had a more immediate design to wage a joint war against American Republic domestically and outside the country. If you want to know how it has been done, just read pp. 167-169, Socialist Lies: From Stalin to the Clintons, Obamas, and Sanders, Xlibris, 2016. I’d like to give you my opinion about a list of military collaboration between U.S. and Russia executed under the Obama/Putin joint venture:

  1. Killing of bin-Laden
  2. Invasion of Libya, conspiracy of Obama, Putin, and French Pres. Sarkozy.
  3. Benghazi, murder of the U.S. ambassador Stevens.
  4. “On 6 August 2011, a U.S. Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter was shot down while transporting a quick reaction force attempting to reinforce an engaged unit of Army Rangers in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. The resulting crash killed all 38 people on board—25 American specialist … Fifteen of the Navy SEALs that were killed were members of the Naval… “

All four operations took place in 2011-2012 before the Presidential election 2012 and described in details in Socialist Lies, the last operation in Chapter 15. The domestic campaign against Donald J. Tramp by Obama/Putin joint venture is still going on.  Iran Nuclear Deal was also done under Obama/Putin joint venture—Iran is a major vassal of Russia, a member of Axis under Russian umbrella. An American hostage named Robert Levinson will never again see the light of day—Russia is interested in him. Rep. Tulsi Cabbard is right saying “the U.S. government is quietly supporting terror allies.” I just illustrated the main culprits and the methods used to achieve the destruction of our country. I’d like people to learn this, especially: Paul Ryan and Sen. McCain. The first is too young to conceive a tremendous harm inflicted to our country by the KGB for the last hundred years. The second is too old, and if Stalin’s Gulag in the North Korea did not teach him, nothing can…

The cooperation of the Democrat’s leadership with Russia will never end until the major weaponry of Democrat’s leadership against the Republicans, the Ideology of Soviet Fascism is exposed and defeated publicly. I have been trying to do that for the last twenty years and all these years the politicized leaders of our Intel blocked information about my books and columns. Those incompetent leaders saw a soul in Putin eyes and joined the anti-Trump campaign after his landslide 2016 election. They are also responsible for helping Obama to destroy and transform the political and economic system left to us by our Founding Fathers. And those incompetent leaders have an audacity to lecture President Trump! What a shame!  

Refugees and Immigration

Immigration is one of the fronts in WW III—a device to destroy America from within. Just research the numbers of Muslims admitted by Obama, you will be stunned. That is the reason, I’d like to tell you about myself. I am an immigrant, a political refugee, who legally emigrated from the Soviet Union to the U.S. in 1981 due to the Jackson-Vanik amendment, a waver for the Soviet Jews. I went through a hell of emigration, being a stateless person for more than a year. Hence, I am very sympathetic to any immigrants or refugees who desire to come to America.  The point is the recent travel ban to seven Muslim countries.

Then, in 1974, a precedent had been set up for the prosecuted minorities. In my case it was religion or nationality of the Jewish minorities prosecuted by the majority. As a matter of fact other minorities had been prosecuted as well in the Soviet Union, yet, this waver applied to the Jews. I remind you the existence of my case as a precedent for a reason.  President Trump has promised to admit fifty thousand refugees from Syria instead of Obama’s intent to admit hundred thousand. Yet, I believe that a waver should be applied to the Christian minorities, definitely prosecuted by the Muslim majorities. It is the American obligation as a country of Judeo-Christian foundation to help saving Christians in the war against Western civilization.

In this war, I hope President Donald J Trump will cross the Delaware, take Trenton and make America great again!

Trump must Punish Mutiny in Judiciary and Senate

The honeymoon is over already. Upon accepting the Oath of Office as POTUS 45, Donald Trump hit the ground running with a clear intent to keep every promise that garnered him the people’s trust, against all odds in 2016. The first week included a flurry of Executive actions aimed at enforcing U.S. Laws that the Obama Administration had refused to enforce for eight years. That’s all it took to ignite a full-scale mutiny from establishment stooges on both sides of the partisan aisle and black mask clad anarchists in the streets.

The icing on the cake was a backlash from lawless lawmakers and federal court activists as they worked to thwart Trump’s temporary ban of potential jihadists – from seven countries identified by Obama era intelligence reports as particularly dangerous.

All Immigration and Naturalization Authority

In the enumerated powers of Congress in Article I – Section VIII of the U.S. Constitution, all legal authority and power over the matter of immigration and naturalization to the U.S. is assigned to the U.S. Congress. Not only do the states have no authority over U.S. immigration and naturalization laws, neither do the Executive or Judicial branches of the Federal government.

States and cities in the U.S. that claim or are defacto “sanctuaries” for illegal activities are operating at odds with the law on a matter that enjoys Federal Supremacy. Not all federal laws or policies enjoy legal supremacy. However, Article VI, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution is known as the Supremacy Clause. It provides that the “Constitution, and the Laws of the United States … shall be the supreme Law of the Land” when the federal government is exercising any of the powers enumerated in the Constitution. Such laws must prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent exercise of power.

All laws concerning immigration and naturalization to the U.S. as passed by Congress, are powers enumerated in the Constitution and they must prevail over any conflicting or inconsistent state, executive or judicial exercise of power.

Because no one has enforced U.S. immigration and naturalization laws since their last reform in 1986, Trump’s effort to enforce those laws today is meeting with resistance from illegal actors, both illegal members of society and the politicians who need their votes.

But recent acts by the judiciary are particularly offensive and dangerous.

The States have no Standing

Because the power to regulate immigration and naturalization is the sole power of congress in Article I, the Executive and Judicial branches have the same power as the states and cities on the matter… NONE!

The constitutional authority of the Executive branch and Judicial branch is limited to the enforcement of the laws passed by congress. When either the Executive branch, as was the case with the Obama Administration, or Judicial branch, which is the case today, refuse to uphold or enforce existing immigration laws passed by congress, they are not only failing in their Oaths and assigned duties to the people, they are acting out against those laws and the people.

Such acts, whether by a sitting president, the courts, the states or cities, fall under the legal definition of sedition – “Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order.”

Certainly, anyone who has taken an Oath to uphold and enforce the U.S. Constitution and the laws of this land and then, refuses to do so, further acting out in a manner to prevent even the Commander-in-Chief from doing so, is guilty of sedition, at the very least. Maybe treason as well!

Inciting the well-organized and funded riots across the country since the election, all on the basis and with the intent of undermining U.S. laws, can easily be defined as aiding and abetting known enemies of the United States with the clear intent to overthrown the U.S. Constitutional Republican form of government… a clear and overt act of treason.

Trump’s Temporary Ban

As Commander-in-Chief with the sole responsibility of protecting the United States against foreign invasion, infiltration or threats to national security at the top of his job description, the POTUS takes an Oath to uphold and enforce the laws passed by Congress, so long as those laws are themselves “constitutional.”

Trump did exactly that upon taking office. The Trump administration announced that it would temporarily bar entry to refugees from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen due to terrorism concerns. Not only are these nations currently engaged in internal wars with known terrorist groups today, numerous terror attacks on U.S. soil over the past eight years have involved immigrants from all of these countries.

For the record, “Muslim is not a nationality.” The ban is not a ban on Muslims, it is a ban on entry to the U.S. from nations known to harbor terrorist organizations with ill intent towards the United States.

The temporary ban concerning seven countries identified by Obama era intelligence reports, is not only within the legal purview of the POTUS, it is his highest obligation under his Oath of Office.

Obama Federal Court Appointee NY

The first effort to thwart the law resulted in the immediate firing of interim Attorney General Sally Yates, who had unconstitutionally issued an order to her Department of Justice “to not enforce the law.”

Only days later, New York US Judge Ann M. Donnelly, appointed by Barack Obama and championed by Democrat Senator Chucky Schumer, issued a ruling in an attempt to block Trump’s Executive action to enforce our laws.

Supported by a few establishment congressional turncoat republicans like McCain, Graham and Ryan, and of course lawless democrats, the old presumption of court authority on the matter was used to foment and incite organized and funded riots across the country. It was a pure partisan political ruling with no real authority over the subject, as Trump was acting within his authority, duties and Oath of office.

Judge Ann M. Donnelly should meet the same end as Sally Yates… as both acted outside of their authority and against the Rule of Law.

Pending Senate confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions as the new Attorney General, Dana Boente, US attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, was sworn in at 9 p.m. ET, per an administration official. A few hours later, Boente issued a statement rescinding Yates’ order, instructing DOJ lawyers to “defend the lawful orders of our President.”

DOJ errors in Appeal

Due to Senate delays in confirming Sessions as Attorney General, the DOJ is left scrambling for a clear direction on critical legal matters involving national security. The result was for the DOJ to waste time and energy engaging in the legal battle over the ban that has netted a lawsuit by sanctuary states Washington, New York and Massachusetts – and now an appeals court ruling from the 9th circuit, none of which have any legal authority on the subject of immigration and naturalization beyond their obligation to uphold and enforce federal laws.

Let me point out that the U.S. Constitution gives the courts NO lawmaking authority whatsoever. Not one single American ever elected even one judge on any federal court. The Constitution does not create an oligarchy of unaccountable and unelected political activists to run our country. The constitutional authority and responsibility of the judicial branch is extremely limited, despite the fact that they have become accustomed to overstepping that authority for decades.

Worst of All

While these gutless legal beagles play games with national security, Trump’s new head of the Department of Homeland Security appears to be taking orders from unelected judges instead of the Commander-in-Chief.

Federal Judge James Robart, a George W. Bush appointee who presides in Seattle, halted the enforcement of Trump’s order Friday night, effective nationwide.

Washington (CNN) “President Donald Trump’s government moved swiftly Saturday to comply with a federal judge’s order halting his travel ban — even as Trump himself denounced the judge — but readied its legal defense of the controversial executive action.

The Department of Homeland Security announced it has suspended all actions to implement the immigration order and will resume standard inspections of travelers as it did prior to the signing of the travel ban. But it said the Justice Department — which is expected to file an emergency motion to stop the order — needed to challenge the ruling “at the earliest possible time.”

“(Trump’s order) is intended to protect the homeland and the American people, and the President has no higher duty and responsibility than to do so,” acting DHS press secretary Gillian Christensen said when announcing the suspension.”

Bordering on Mutiny

General John F. Kelly is a highly-decorated career Marine with extensive leadership experience. No one knows the U.S. chain of command better than General Kelly. Kelly is the newly seated Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, appointed by President Donald Trump.

“The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, and our goal is clear – keeping America safe.”

As General Kelly well knows, this is also the primary mandate of the Commander-in-Chief, President Trump. He also knows that the order issued by Trump was both legal and necessary to the security of the United States and that the Commander-in-Chief had the full authority to issue that directive.

So, why did General Kelly allow an unelected judicial activist to overrule the Commander-in-Chief by issuing the following DHS directive? (DHS Statement on Compliance with Recent Court Order)

Why is General John Kelly, new Trump Secretary of DHS taking orders from known left-wing judicial activists instead of the Commander-in-Chief? Were any of these judges elected President of the United States? Have all of them taken an oath to uphold and enforce the U.S. Constitution and U.S laws? Does the Department of Homeland Security take orders from unelected judges, or from the POTUS?

When federal courts ordered Barack Hussein Obama to cease and desist in his executive amnesty, he simply ignored those orders and continued his executive amnesty with total immunity. Obama didn’t pay any attention at all to those court opinions… despite the fact that Obama’s order was unlawful and unconstitutional on its face – an overt refusal to enforce federal laws in direct violation of his oath, placing all of America at risk.

Obama totally ignored those court orders and there was no price to pay whatsoever. The same Inspector General who sat silent as Obama ignored court orders to stop his “illegal” executive amnesty, is now looking into Trump’s “legal” temporary vetting ban.

In the end, it all adds up to just how much swamp needs to be drained…

But it also begs the question… Is Trump really up to this task? Does he really have the backbone to fight and defeat these anti-American activists in the courts and congress in order to “drain this swamp?” Do his appointees, like General Kelly and Jeff Sessions, really have what it takes to put these illegal activists in their place and return this country to the Rule of Constitutional Law?

Or, is it all just smoke and mirrors… creating the impression of draining the swamp while allowing the swamp to run roughshod over the Trump Administration and the people, until the people get so fed up that they take matters into their own hands?

Because Trump is moving at light-speed, and so are his enemies, we won’t have to wait long to see the answers to these questions.

Obama had the courage to defy the courts, even as he acted illegally. Does Trump and his team have the courage to defy these activist judges in the name of the law? We will know the answer to this question in days… not weeks.

If Trump and his cabinet are serious about draining this swamp, they must start stomping on heads right away. The political left (including people like McCain, Graham and Ryan) must be shut down. They must be stopped from using activist judges appointed by Obama to thwart Trumps attempts to secure the USA and enforce our laws… or else the notion of draining this swamp is a joke!

The people are hoping and watching. Trump was chosen to lead a Revolution! The people will give him a chance to do that, but not for long…

Globalists Fight Psychological War of Words against America

Borders are a nation’s first line of defense and last line of defense against the enemies of that nation. In fact, it could properly be said that the primary role of our military is to keep America’s enemies as far from our shores (and borders) as possible.

However, “up close and in person,” the issue of border security becomes the domain and responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security and its component agencies charged with border security and the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.

The report, “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States,” began with this paragraph:

“It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.”

However, border security is a problem for globalists who see in secure borders impediments to their wealth. And, politicians who depend on political campaign contributions, by necessity, must take into account the demands of their campaign contributors, many of whom have globalist objectives.

Organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a host of other special interest groups that depend on the exploitation of the immigration system are eager to fill the campaign coffers of politicians irrespective of whether they are Democrats or Republicans in order to get “the best government money can buy.”

Today news reports on immigration often lack clarity and honesty. Frequently news reports appear to have been written by Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth” and the term “propaganda” comes to mind when considering them.

Consider that “propaganda” has been described thusly:

propaganda |ˌpräpəˈɡandə|
noun
chiefly derogatory information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view: he was charged with distributing enemy propaganda.

the dissemination of propaganda as a political strategy: the party’s leaders believed that a long period of education and propaganda would be necessary.

All too frequently journalists have been participants in efforts to obfuscate the issue of immigration following the lead of Jimmy Carter, originator of the Orwellian term, “undocumented immigrant.” Their news reports foisted on Americans are part of what I have come to refer to as the immigration con game.

President Trump’s executive order to temporarily block the entry of aliens from seven countries parallels the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. Aliens from those countries cannot be effectively vetted; yet, major news organizations breathlessly exclaimed that aliens who had been issued visas were denied entry into the U.S., blithely ignoring the fact that aliens with valid visas are routinely denied entry into the United States by Customs and Border Protection Inspectors, an issue with which I am intimately familiar.

For the first four years of my 30-year career with the former INS I was an Immigration Inspector at John F. Kennedy International Airport. My article, “Aliens Guaranteed Entry Into The U.S.?Trump’s executive order on immigration and the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission,” explained how a visa should be simply thought of as a “ticket” that enables an alien seeking U.S. entry to a port of entry and make an application for admission. However, an alien who has been issued a visa is not guaranteed entry into the country. Indeed, aliens do not have an inherent right to enter the U.S.; only American citizens do.

Furthermore, while nearly every news report identified those seven countries as being “majority Muslim countries,” ignored was the fact that the Obama administration had compiled that list of countries because they were identified with terrorism and were therefore extremely problematic.

Unfortunately too many Americans are “drinking the Kool-Aid,” an expression that refers to the deaths of more than 900 people who killed themselves or murdered their children, blindly following the insane exhortations of charismatic cult leader Jim Jones, in what came to be known as “The Jonestown Massacre.”

Those Americans should put down their straws and be relieved, not angered, that for once our government is seeking to protect innocent lives, putting safety ahead of the globalists’ anti-American agenda.

ISIS Supporting Muslim Mastermind Behind Texas Massacre Sentenced to 30 Years

The American Muslim convert who plotted to assassinate me and slaughter everyone who attended our free speech event in Garland, Texas got 30 years today at his sentencing hearing in Texas. We were targeted for death in the first ISIS attack on American soil because we violated the free speech prohibitions under Islamic law.

This attack was a declaration of war in the homeland. Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem should have gotten a life sentence at Gitmo.

Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced.

Islamic law forbids criticism of Islam, Quran, Muhammad. If they cannot be criticized in the US, we are in effect accepting Islamic law as overriding the freedom of speech. This would establish Muslims as a protected class and prevent honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism.

The Muhammad cartoons are a flash point in the discussion about free speech because according to Islamic law they are blasphemy, punishable by death. Many have been killed over them. At issue is whether we will protect those who draw them and exhibit them, and thereby protect free speech and free society, or censor ourselves and others over them, thereby in effect adopting Sharia.

ISIS SUPPORTER SENTENCED TO PRISON IN MUHAMMAD CARTOON CONTEST ATTACK

February 08, 2017 FoxNews.com:

Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem. (Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department via AP, File)

An American-born Muslim convert convicted of supporting the Islamic State terror group and helping to plot a 2015 attack on a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years behind bars.

Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem told the judge in Phoenix he “had nothing to do” with the attack. However, authorities said Kareem provided the cash that his two friends – Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi – used to open fire outside the anti-Islam event in Garland.

Simpson and Soofi were killed in a police shootout outside the contest and a security guard was wounded. No one else was hurt.
Prosecutors sought a life sentence for Kareem, who became the second person in the U.S. to be convicted of charges of supporting ISIS. He was convicted of conspiring to support a foreign terrorist organization, interstate transportation of firearms and other charges.

During the investigation, police found that Kareem has hosted two ISIS followers in his home to discuss the attack. It’s still unknown whether the Texas attack was inspired by ISIS or carried out in response to an order from the group.

Prosecutors have said Kareem watched videos depicting violence by jihadists with the two friends, encouraged them to launch violent attack to support the terrorist group and researched travel to the Middle East to join Islamic State fighters.

Authorities also said Kareem inquired about explosives to blow up the Arizona stadium where the 2015 Super Bowl was held, but later set his sights on the cartoon contest after the stadium plan fell through.

The verdicts against Kareem nearly a year ago marked the second conviction of someone within the United States on charges of supporting the Islamic State. He was convicted of conspiring to support a foreign terrorist organization, interstate transportation of firearms and other charges.

Kareem denies involvement in the plan to attack the contest, testifying that he didn’t know his friends were going to attack the contest and didn’t find out about the shooting until after Simpson and Soofi were killed.

Kareem told jurors that he strongly disapproved of Simpson using Kareem’s laptop to watch al-Qaida promotional materials.

Prosecutors said Kareem tried to carry out an insurance scam to fund the Islamic State group and tried to indoctrinate two teenage boys in his neighborhood in radical jihadism.

VIOLENT ACTION ALERT: ‘Roudy As Hell Autonomous Rebels’ F17 Strike in Tucson, AZ

The demonstrations that seemingly just “pop-up” are not at all what they appear.

These are planned and well-coordinated acts of anarchy with the intent to promote destruction of property, both private and public, and to disrupt financial sectors creating financial loss and hardships on business. Those involved are trained in various forms of destruction including, but not limited to: physical violence, the setting of fires, breaking and entering, destruction of property, aggressive acts towards law enforcement. The information below substantiates what I just wrote, and the recent Berkeley campus riots are further proof of anarchists accomplishing far more than exercising their First Amendment Rights.

Tucson, Arizona downtown is now scheduled to experience a Berkeley-style demonstration.

An action notice to disrupt downtown Tucson on February 17th at the Ronstadt Transit Center has been posted by ItsGoingDown.org.


igd_square-300x300F17 Tucson: Strike Is a Verb!

No Pipelines or Presidents on Stolen Land. Or Anywhere.

For a World Without Borders, Prisons, or Police.

        To be sure, No Ban – No Wall.

Always Anti-Capitalist, Always Anti-Fascist,

          Rowdy As Hell.

In response to the call for a national general strike on February 17th, a group of autonomous rebels hope to open up space for resistance here on occupied Tohono O’odham land, Tucson, Arizona.

Meeting at 6PM at the Ronstadt Transit Center downtown, we will gather with the intention of being as disruptive as possible. In order to not be complicit in the continued destruction of the earth, in the cycle of genocide and fear mongering and racist hate, we have to choose to disobey. We must make it impossible for this system to govern on stolen land.

Participants are encouraged to come organized to carry out whatever plans you can come up with – our intention is to open up a space to make varied forms of resistance possible depending on YOUR desires! Anyone without the capacity or desire to come with a prepared group is, of course, absolutely welcome and encouraged to show up!

U.S.-9th-Circuit-Court-of-Appeals

Trump Could Simply Ignore Court’s Order Halting Travel Ban

Does our current status quo make our Constitution a suicide pact? Thomas Jefferson certainly said as much, warning that accepting judicial supremacy would make our founding document just that, a felo de se, as he put it in Latin.

Acceptance of judicial supremacy, by the way, is precisely why President Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations is on hold. Imagine that, Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist, No. 78 that the judiciary is the “least dangerous” branch of government because it “has no influence over either the sword or the purse,” yet it’s trumping the man with the sword, the president. But does it have to be this way?

No, Trump could simply ignore the court ruling suspending his ban.

Outrageous!? Unconstitutional!? Actually, it’s wholly constitutional.

In his dissent from the 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges marriage ruling, late Justice Antonin Scalia warned that with “each decision… unabashedly based not on law,” the Court moves “one step closer to being reminded of [its] impotence.” What did Scalia know about courts’ power?

That it’s basically an illusion.

Let’s do a civics quiz. Why does the legislative branch have the power to make law? Why does the executive branch (presidency) have the power to enforce law? The answer in both cases is because the Constitution grants it.

Okay, now how is it that the judiciary has the “power” to rule on law and have its decisions constrain not just its own branch, but the other two as well? How have the courts become king? Because the Constitution grants…no, stop. It’s not in the Constitution — anywhere.

Rather, this “power” was declared by the courts themselves, most notably in the 1803 Marbury v. Madison decision.

That’s right, the Supreme Court gave the Supreme Court the supreme power to have the final say on laws’ meaning.

It’s a great con if you can pull it off.

The point is that the judiciary enjoys this power at the executive branch’s pleasure. As soon as the latter says, to paraphrase Andrew Jackson, “The courts have made their decision; now let them enforce it,” that power goes bye-bye. The judiciary is reminded of its impotence.

So it isn’t just that the courts lack the sword or purse, the possession and exercise of which could simply amount to might making right. They also have no constitutional claim to judicial supremacy. In fact, the power is a violation of everything for which America stands.

Jefferson explained why in 1820, writing that “to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions” is “a very dangerous doctrine indeed and one which would place us under the despotism of an Oligarchy.” This is where we are now, and have long been — suicide-pact territory. The will of a nation 320-million strong is expressed through its duly elected representatives and laws are passed….

And then that will is thwarted by five black-robed lawyers in a central-government tribunal.

Does this sound like a government of, by and for the people to you?

As time has worn on, the judiciary has become increasingly brazen, issuing rulings more and more distant from the Constitution. This is no surprise. As Jefferson put it, “Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privileges of their corps.”

They even conjure up rationalizations justifying this power and privilege. For example, they long ago invented, out of thin air, the concept of the Constitution as a “living document” that can be interpreted to “suit the times.” Yet since the interpretations so often conflict with popular will, the only common thread is that they suit the judges.

These esteemed jurists then put a veneer of legitimacy on their violation of law and duty by assigning themselves an intellectual-sounding designation. “Why, we’re not constrained by a 200-year-old piece of parchment like those knuckle-dragging originalists,” they say, “We’re ‘pragmatists’!”

To understand how outrageous this is, consider an analogy touched on by Chief Justice John Roberts when, during his confirmation hearings, he said his job was only “to call balls and strikes.” Expanding on this, judges can in fact be thought of as baseball umpires, while the game’s ruling body is the legislature and the rule book is the Constitution. Now, what if an umpire considered the rule book living and said, “With the great pitchers in these times, three strikes are insufficient; I’m giving the batter four strikes”? What if he then stated, “I’m not abdicating my duty. I’m a pragmatist!”

Would this be taken seriously? Or would he be laughed off the diamond?

Obviously, it’s the job of the ruling body to alter the rules if necessary. Likewise, there is a lawful way to make the Constitution “live”: the Amendment Process. It’s long and difficult, and this ensures that before a change is made, a majority of the people agrees. This brings us to the problem with it — from the judiciary’s perspective:

Judges can’t control it.

So they usurp the people’s power with a wink and a nod. They must be stopped.

There’s more than one way to do this. Another little known fact is that Article III of the Constitution grants Congress the power to limit the jurisdiction of federal courts below the Supreme Court and the appellate jurisdiction of the latter. In other words, Congress could simply have prevented federal courts below the SCOTUS from ruling on immigration (and other issues) to begin with and the SCOTUS from reviewing lower-court decisions on those issues.

Congress also has the power under Article III to eliminate any and every federal court, except for the SCOTUS. So it could have made the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit — a bench of fools now reviewing Trump’s immigration ban — disappear long ago.

Yet this would require that our cowardly politicians take a real stand on a contentious issue. They’d rather that judges, who don’t have to be re-elected, make the tough decisions. They can then pretend they did all they could and say, “The courts have ruled. The law’s the law!”

So is it any surprise the courts are going rogue? “Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” as Lord Acton warned. And how can we have a balance of power among the three governmental branches, as the founders intended, when two branches refuse to exercise their power?

I’ve heard it said that if the president ignored the courts, it would spark a constitutional crisis. Newsflash: When a branch of government is continually trampling the rights of others and violating the Constitution, we’re already in a constitutional crisis. Showing the judiciary its impotence isn’t the disease — it’s the cure.

Only power neutralizes power. It’s shocking how we’ve betrayed the letter and spirit of our nation’s founding and have allowed the courts to run amok. We can continue drinking the judicial-supremacy Kool-Aid and committing national suicide, or we can drain the swamp infested with black-robed tyrants. It’s impotence for them — or irrelevancy for us.

Army Corps Ready to Grant Easement to Finish Dakota Access Pipeline

The drama over the Dakota Access Pipeline could soon come to an end, Bloomberg reports:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said in a court filing it will grant Energy Transfer Partners LP the easement it needs to finish the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline.

The company needs the easement to complete work under Lake Oahe, following President Donald Trump’s memorandum that advised expediting review of the project. Trump took office promising to favor oil and natural gas developments as well as support new infrastructure, which has included reviving TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone XL pipeline.

[ … ]

In January, the Department of the Army, withholding the final easement necessary for construction beneath the lake, initiated an Environmental Impact Statement, which Energy Transfer failed to block in court. Energy Transfer has argued it went through the full permitting process and has the necessary approvals.

The project was originally scheduled to be operational by the end of 2016. Now it’s expected to start operating June 1, assuming no new obstacles prevent it, a person familiar with the matter said Feb. 3. Lisa Dillinger, a spokeswoman for Energy Transfer, confirmed that the project would be in service in the second quarter.

The pipeline would provide a new path for transporting North Dakota crude oil to Midwest refineries.

This is a win for jobs, improved energy infrastructure, and the rule of law.

Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy, was pleased with the news:

Today’s news indicates a positive step forward for the Dakota Access Pipeline. It’s encouraging to see how seriously the Trump administration is taking the need to build energy infrastructure, which will create jobs, improve our security, and keep energy affordable for families and businesses around the country.

While the permitting situation is finally falling into place, clean-up crews are hard at work picking up the hundreds of truckloads of garbage from extreme, anti-energy, “keep it in the ground,” pipeline opponents left at their protest site:

Making a dent in the immense amount of trash being hauled out of the Oceti Sakowin protest camp is being hindered by the weather. All the garbage that was left behind is now frozen into massive chunks of junk.

In a month, all this trash could become toxic.

“Standing Rock Environmental Protection Agency and Dakota Sanitation are working together to try and advert an environmental tragedy,” says Tom Doering, Morton County Emergency Manager.

It’s estimated it will take 250 trucks filled with litter to clear the camp.

Asylum!

Adam Ghahramani, a digital product and marketing director in New York, is an Iranian-American who penned his concerns on VentureBeat, that President Trump will prevent all Muslims from seeking asylum in these United States. He maintains that Iranians have the talent and potential to become successful, productive, good citizens, and he joined mainstream media, sundry entertainers and city officials in expressing his unfounded fears of this new administration.

An asylum of sorts may indeed be needed by the rioters who appear to be in perpetual meltdown.

They articulate their doubts even when President Trump clearly iterated that he is following through on his campaign promise of security for all citizens – Christian, Jewish, and Muslim alike.  In fact, based on reports by the Director of National Intelligence, the Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) for the previous administration, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan and Somalia were identified by President Obama as the source of increasing terrorism.  This is clearly a terror-prone region, home to only 8% of Muslims worldwide.  Since January, 2009, we have had 32 terrorist attacks, with 83 fatalities and 402 injuries in the U.S., attributed by President Obama to these seven countries.

  • Iran: The US government classified the Islamic Republic of Iran as the “most active state sponsor of terrorism since 1948, both by direct attacks and by proxy through providing weapons, funds, training, and sanctuary to Hezbollah, Hamas, the Taliban, and militias in Iraq.  The year 2012 showed a marked resurgence of state-sponsored terrorism not seen since the 1990s.
  • Syria: Classified the world’s worst state sponsor for terrorism since 1979, Syria also gives asylum for Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, and arms Hezbollah forces in Lebanon with SCUD missiles.  Syria was responsible for movement of foreign Al Qaeda affiliates into Iraq.
  • IraqProvides safe haven, training, financial support to terrorist groups, and support to some Islamist Palestinian groups. Iraq played a role in the 1985 Achille Lauro cruise ship hijacking, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and provided financial support for  Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Palestine Liberation front, Arab Liberation Front; and finances families of Palestinian suicide bombers.
  • Libya: Our State Department warns US citizens against all travel to Libya; our embassy in Tripoli is closed and extremist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks against US interests in Libya and the Middle East.  Violent activity against civilian commercial interests, US officials and citizens remains high.
  • Yemen: US government describes Yemen as an “important partner in the global war on terrorism.”  A Yemini Al Qaeda masterminded the USS Cole bombing (2000); Al Qaeda militants have threatened the Jewish community (2007) and attacked the US Embassy (2008); bomb devices have been found on aircraft (2010), deadly terrorist strikes are a continuous threat since 2001.
  • Sudan: Designated a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” in 1993, the Sudanese government continues to harbor international terrorist groups.  President Bill Clinton prohibited transactions with Sudan; US bombed Sudanese Al-Qaeda network; Sudan maintains direct relations with Iranian Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Popular Resistance Committee.  Sudan is key transit route of weapons to Gaza.
  • SomaliaRadical Islamist terrorist group al-Shabab targets to recruit Minneapolis Somali- American refugees to become jihadists, with the intent of imposing strict sharia law on Somalia and to attack the United States.

That we cannot vet all refugees for ties to terror has been confirmed by FBI Director James Comey, National Intelligence Director James Clapper, former Rep. Mike Rogers (Mich), and Hillary Clinton.  With such verification, it is no surprise that President Trump, a man of his word, would issue a travel ban on those countries (only) so that the DHS may establish a comprehensive vetting process. He had promised to institute a policy designed to protect our sovereignty and citizens once he took office, and within days of his inauguration, he began to fulfill his promise by taking the steps needed to defend our values.

It would be irresponsible to continue to accept untold unidentified migrants, of which any number could bring with them the instability and hostility that permeates their homelands, endangers our women and children for the dishonest cause of multiculturalism that has befallen Sweden and Germany.  Unvetted immigration has turned Sweden into the Rape Capital of the West and Germany appears to be competing for the title.

But while some of our population has been provoked to deep anxiety about this brief and insignificant hiatus, we can’t help but wonder at the absence of outrage when Christians are raped and murdered by Muslims or when the entire Muslim world enacts a travel ban against travelers’ bearing passports with Israeli connections that has thus far lasted for seven decades.

Still, Mr. Ghahramani warned that America would experience a dearth of talented, industrious workers from the Middle East, exampling successful children of those refugees – Steve Jobs (Apple), Pierre Omidyar (eBay), Omid Kordestani (Google), Salar Kamangar (YouTube), Arash Ferdowsi (Dropbox), Kordestani and Ali Rowghani (Twitter), Bob Miner (Oracle), Shahram Dabiri (World of Warcraft), and Sean Rad (Tinder).  Yet the ban has nothing to do with a success potential.

Learning why people emigrate from the Middle East to the West will shed much-needed light on the subject because people do not migrate when life is good.  These families left an oppressive existence in a tyrannical Islamic regime, an all-encompassing social, political and legal system that breeds hate against Jews, Christians, and all non-Islamic civilization – and even among themselves.  Such theocratic governments confine their people into a narrow uniformity.  Medieval suspicion is instilled toward the modern world, stifling creativity in the arts and sciences. Five-times-daily rituals of prescribed prayer further drain the vitality of creative energy.

“The influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it.” “No stronger retrograde force (than Islam) exists in the world.” – Winston Churchill.

This enervating process is the daily background to the practice of FGM (female genital mutilation), honor killing of daughters, parents wrapping their children in explosives, and husbands stoning their wives to death.  The frustrated human spirit protests in hatred and savagery.  From the earliest age, they are taught and urged to stab, kill, rape, humiliate, stone, and drive vehicles into crowds of Jews and Christians, and homosexuality and apostasy are punishable by death.

The peoples of the current Islamic territories were once Zoroastrian, Christian, Pharoahan, Berber/Imazighen, Jewish, Baha’i, etc.,  until the Arabs swept out of the Arabian Peninsula in all directions, conquering and confining their victims to the life-denying cult known euphemistically as Islam.  It is they who now seek American freedoms, longing for the light, as does all life, and that is why we must remain vigilant.  But a significant percentage wants to enslave us under the same mortifying system that they had and to fulfill their ingrained obligation of hijra – conquest by numbers and the gradual imposition of sharia law in schools and workplaces across America.  Their national goal is Islamic world domination.

How devastating if our founding fathers had escaped their authoritarian monarchy to establish a freer government, only to find themselves in another repressive dictatorship.  How cruel and ironic if our ancestors had fled from Europe’s socialism, Marxism, and communism only to find themselves overcome by domination under the same doctrines.  Our society is not only a haven for the talented and creative, but it is also a seedbed that we have the duty to preserve.

Should we allow the new jihadists or enemy from within to turn this Constitutional Republic into an Islamic theocracy, a caliphate, with all the intolerable restrictions of Sharia law that the new Americans thought they left behind?

We must not fail our citizens through negligence or a misplaced sense of compassion and think that we should accept all who alight on our shores.   Egyptian-American author Nonie Darwish reminds us that some of the unhappy populations must stay behind and work to reform Islam and restore the Middle East.  Here, we must vet every entrant to ensure their embrace of our values and that they will become a productive member of our society – for those who will not, will continue to teach their children their own tenets of obsessive hate, and we have enough troubles already.

The purpose of the Islamic ideology is to rule the world – and to destroy Israel, a stubborn bastion of freedom.  Failure to perform jihad will lead to “spiritual death.”  The Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Society of North America, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Muslim Student Association, ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah and other affiliates are bound to insinuate into our society, and slowly implement Sharia changes into every facet of our lives.  We already have a Sharia-compliant Muslim population of 3.3 million in more than 300 American cities and towns.

Only extraordinary measures will save the West from the extraordinary threat to her survival.

White House confronts fake media narrative that no refugees have been arrested for crimes/terrorism

We’ve been telling you about them for years and recently chronicled ten cases of Islamic terror arrests and additional cases of refugees committing heinous crimes, see here.

This morning the media, at least Fox News (did not hear a word of it on CNN in the 5 a.m. hour) is reporting that the White House has a list of refugee criminals/terrorists.

Here is what Leo Hohmann said yesterday at World Net Daily:

Travel-ban judge makes decision based on whopping lie

The judge who granted an injunction against President Donald Trump’s temporary ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries based his decision on a blatantly inaccurate premise.

Judge James Robart

Judge James Robart

Judge James Robart, a federal district judge in Seattle, stated that no one from the seven countries on Trump’s list – Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Libya – has been arrested on terrorism charges since the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on America.

His comment, made in open court on Friday, went unchallenged in the establishment media all weekend and into Monday, while WND reported it was inaccurate and gave a partial list of terror incidents that have been plotted or carried out by Somali and Iraqi immigrants since 9/11.

Where is Politifact? Where is Snopes? Where are all the other media fact-checkers to correct the mistaken judge?

“Judge Robart no doubt knows the mainstream media is a propaganda arm for the left’s globalist agenda, and so no one would report the falsity of his statement except ‘discredited’ or ‘right-wing’ news outlets,” said Robert Spencer, an Islam expert who blogs for the David Horowitz Freedom Center at JihadWatch.org.

Finally, on Monday afternoon, the Associated Press came out with a fact-check on Robart’s comment, debunking it as patently false.

“WASHINGTON — The federal judge who halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban was wrong in stating that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump’s order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Just last October, an Iraqi refugee living in Texas pleaded guilty to attempting to provide support to the Islamic State group, accused of taking tactical training and wanting to blow himself up in an act of martyrdom. In November, a Somali refugee injured 11 in a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University, and he surely would have been arrested had he not been killed by an officer.”

[….]

So Robart either has a short memory, does not read the news, or was deliberately whitewashing the facts in an attempt to strike down Trump’s executive order.

More here.

And, see Hohmann here in 2015 reporting on a list of, at that time, 72 cases compiled by Senator Jeff Sessions!
