America lacks standing
By Donald Hank
Well, the Donofrio case against Obama (one of the many court cases the media refused to tell you about for months), demanding the showing of a real birth certificate, has failed, and I am getting near-frantic emails from conservatives who had entertained hopes that Donofrio, and hence, justice for all, would prevail.
Here is what I am telling them:
The constitutional damage was first done in 1913 with the institution of the Federal Reserve and income tax, and was almost total by 1973 with Roe v Wade, when some justices unlawfully decided that the Constitution affords a right to kill, and there was no general outcry.
They stopped defending the unborn, but I wasn’t an unborn so I said nothing…
The Constitution was further undermined by G.W. Bush when he decided that, as chief law enforcer, he could pick and choose which of his constitutional duties to fulfill and chose not to comply with his duty to defend our borders. He suggested this was his duty as a Christian, saying on national TV, first, “they are good people looking for a better way of life”…and ending with “it [letting undocumented stay illegally] is good for our soul.”
Bush thereby not only overstepped his constitutional bounds but also donned the clerical hat, as though America had anointed him as their Pope, not their president. And here is where “conservatives” got egg on their faces. Many gave him a pass, believing in their hearts that Bush was sent by God as their “ruler” rather than lending him power with the reservation that he uphold the Constitution, as must be done in a Republic. Thus it wasn’t Bush who failed. It was American Christians.
They stopped defending the victims of violent crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens, but I wasn’t a victim of crimes committed by illegal aliens, so I said nothing…
McCain did likewise, supporting an illegal bill to give amnesty to lawbreakers. He too played pope, condescendingly calling illegal Mexicans “God’s little children.” Obama and his party did much the same simply by ignoring the issue.
Then the president and both candidates strongly supported an unconstitutional role of government in our economy, giving failed banks a trillion dollars in an unprecedented move to blend government and business, plunging the US into full-fledged fascism. A few conservatives bravely pointed to the role played by the Community Reinvestment Act, but then fell silent. (I received a lengthy commentary on the causes of the bank crisis, written by a “conservative” think tank. It failed to even mention the role of the CRA, a Democrat law that forced banks to lend $1 trillion to “underserved communities” notorious for bad credit, high unemployment and welfare entitlements.)
No one in the highest positions is now following the Constitution, let alone showing common sense, so how can anyone contest what Obama is doing?
We didn’t protest Wade v Roe, not enough of us protested amnesty and open borders, we allowed these to become non-issues during the campaign – for fear of the big, bad ‘bama – and now that the bailout is a fait accompli, few are protesting it any longer. And we wonder why the courts aren’t listening when someone protests that an illegal alien is president.
Then they abandoned me and there was no one left with the moral standing to defend my Constitutional right to a legitimate American born president.
It was the choice of Americans to ignore the Constitution, and the powerful undercurrent to scrap the Constitution and to substitute it with the public whim du jour may well have too much momentum to stop at this point.
So now, tell me the truth: were you really surprised that Donofrio failed?
And yet, God is still on His throne. Watch closely for His hand now.
Fascism, it’s all the rage in America
A few years back I started noticing free AOL CDs on display at the local post offices. I was annoyed that AOL could get free advertising. I am a businessman too, so why wasn’t the US government advertising my business? Or yours for that matter.
So I asked an official at the window how it is that the US government can choose one business over all the others to promote? Was that legal? It certainly was not fair.
No one knew the answer to that, but I kept protesting it every time I went to the post office. The officials I spoke with were sympathetic but all said I was the only one protesting. Everyone else seemed to think this was fine.
To be fair, the advertisement was ostensibly focused on the post office’s new web page, and that was the pretext for the free plug for AOL. But it wasn’t kosher because no other internet company was mentioned. Eventually they stopped.
Of course, even further back than that we saw Chrysler getting bailed out at taxpayers’ expense. And now we see major banks getting bailed out as a reward for dismal performance and the auto workers lined up for their reward for the same kind of performance and for overpaying their workers, and it is clearly just the beginning of a burgeoning trend.
How long will it last?
I think the answer is: until such time as it fails, and like all other unconstitutional policies, it will inevitably fail due to natural causes.
RWTNs may save America
It was a communist, Deng Xiaoping, who fixed a nation destroyed by Chairman Mao. He did it using a novel system: capitalism. The fact is, all leftist mistakes are eventually fixed by leftists using conservative methods that had been previously denounced.
Another example, it was a group of French communists (Stephane Courtois et al.) who bravely wrote “The Black Book of Communism” exposing that fact that about 100 million innocents had lost their lives on the altar of the Left in the 20th Century.
Thus, to save the day, Left inevitably drifts rightward. It will always be so as long as God is in His heaven and His natural laws are “on the books.”
By now you have probably heard of Michelle Rhee, the no-nonsense Chancellor of Washington DC’s school system, who is being entrusted with fixing what the Dems broke. She is a Dem too but is using a Republican method: discipline, for both teachers and students. Her draconian measures will include weakening the tenure system while strengthening performance pay for teachers and closing several failing schools, all to the vain protests of the teachers’ unions. Nature has won out, by proving the failure of Leftist control over education (Washington’s schools have been among the worst in the world).
The Left can hate conservatives as much as they want, but their would-be utopian world will inevitably continue to fall apart, and when they can’t stand it any more they will become RWTNs, Republicans Without The Name, the mirror image of RINOs.
As Anne Coulter famously said in a book by that title, if liberals were smart they’d be Republicans. I would modify that and say “if Republicans were smart they’d be Republicans,” but it’s a little late for that.
But to return to my story, let’s take a look at what the Dems have had to do over just the last 2 decades or so:
– Clinton was given the – for him – distasteful job of “fixing” welfare. The Republican congress forced his hand, but he would eventually have had to reform the system anyway out of sheer embarrassment. He did a passable job, short of eliminating the dreadful system altogether.
– Democrats (as well as Republicans) in Louisiana rejected Congressman William Jefferson, a Democrat who stole too much, this election.
– And note that it was a Democrat, Phillip Berg, who first sued Barack Obama and the DNC for failing to present proper credentials for their candidate.
– The Department of Public Health of the fanatically pro-homosexual government of Massachusetts recently came out with a report showing that homosexuality is unhealthy and leads to destructive behavior. (Conservatives had been saying that forever but were shouted down).
All of this is evidence of what I had tried to show in my WND article “The socialist State: a hotbed of capitalism,” namely, that behind the scenes of every leftist policy is a hidden conservative system that props up failed socialism.
So what is the secret to all of these successes of the RWTN’s? And what was the role of conservatives?
In each of these cases, conservatives had long done the research needed to lead to these positive results.
Yet, nothing happened until “liberals” were allowed to believe that they had come across the information, and the resulting solutions, on their own.
In other words, we must use the same system used successfully with all children.
Tip: To avoid out-of-control, violent tantrums, do not, under any circumstances, remind liberals that it was our idea first.
