How The Obama Era Department Of Justice Is Funding Left Wing Liberal Lunatics To Further Their Own Political Agenda.


Ideas have consequences. In 2013, during the preliminary investigation for the
book, Extortion GAI researchers detected a pattern of federal lawsuits and settlements
brought by a newly created office within the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ. Assistant
Attorney General Tom Perez made the DOJ’s intentions clear in his January 14, 2010 speech to the Rainbow PUSH Coalition – Annual Wall Street Conference.

Mr. Perez stated: “Fair lending is a top priority for the Civil Rights Division, and I have taken a number of critical steps to ensure that we put our best forward. I have hired a Special Counsel for Fair Lending to spearhead our efforts. We are also establishing a
dedicated Fair Lending unit within the Division’s Housing Section. The unit will root
out lending discrimination in all forms.”

In remarks at the Brookings Institution Perez stated:
The establishment of the Fair Lending Unit, with dedicated attorneys, economists,
investigators, support staff and a Special Counsel for Fair Lending, ensure that fair
lending issues receive immediate attention and high priority.
The unit already has 50 matters open, including 18 investigations. We have
identified large, mid-size and small lenders as targets of enforcement efforts and
those targets include national, regional and local actors.

What Mr. Perez did not say in these comments was that millions of dollars would
eventually be handed over, no strings attached, to activist nonprofits.
The DOJ began to file lawsuits against financial institutions based on evidence of
unfair lending practices. With the threat of protracted litigation and bad press looming, the DOJ extracted settlements before trial. These technically voluntary settlement agreements, referred to as “consent orders,” usually established a settlement fund to service claims made by victims of the defendant’s alleged illegal behavior. More often than not, the consent order specified that unclaimed funds were to be distributed to a qualified organization as approved by the Department of Justice. Moreover, many of the settlements called for large sums of money to be paid toward educational efforts, often provided by these same qualified organizations.

The DOJ filed pleadings in each case that used essentially identical language for each
complaint and settlement. This assembly line approach uses what is sometimes referred to in the legal profession as “cookbook pleadings” – those not designed for actual litigation, but intended merely to provide a basis for the settlement and payment of money. Seldom was the actual complaint filed more than a month prior to filing the consent order and occasionally within days.

A consent order, sometimes referred to as a “consent judgment” or a “consent decree,” is an order or judgment by the court where the parties have previously agreed to the settlement terms and provisions. Another feature of the consent decree is that the court
will maintain jurisdiction of the matter to supervise the implementation of the decree. The filing of the complaint serves to invoke the jurisdiction of the court.

These institutions spend a vast sum of money advertising each year. A case of this
nature could have a devastating impact for any bank deemed racist. As the Wall Street
Journal reported, “The lenders quickly settled these cases rather than run the reputational risk of being called racist in court.”63 When contacted by the DOJ, often a target financial institution would want to reach a number and shut the process down as soon as possible, as one bank put it, “to avoid contested litigation.” Because the entire negotiation process occurs in the context of litigation, the internal communications of a party remain confidential protected by attorney client privilege. Thus, the public and Congress are provided very little information regarding the nature and process of the negotiations between the parties. In other words, the DOJ effectively silences the target institution without any form of congressional oversight or public scrutiny. Courts were either unaware of this mechanism of disbursement or did not comment in their review of the proposed consent orders.

The agreements were reached prior to filing the proposed order and the parties both had legal representation. A settlement in court is technically reached by the parties freely and voluntarily unless there is evidence to suggest otherwise. The congressional
testimony of Paul Larkin, Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation in 2015
denounced the court’s limited participation in the process:

What aggravates this problem even more is that you have these sorts of settlements
gradually coming into wider and wider…Why is that a problem? Because oftentimes
there is no judicial involvement whatsoever. These agreements often are a means of
disposing not of charges or a lawsuit that has already filed. They are a means often of disposing of charges or a lawsuit before any are filed. So there is no judicial
involvement whatsoever. You have an agreement entirely between the lawyers for
the United States and the lawyers for other parties. And in this agreement they are
trying to engage in what is for all intents and purposes a sham transaction to avoid
depositing all of the money that is due to the taxpayers of the United States into the
account that the Treasury maintains, that Congress thereafter can decide how it will
be spent.

In all of the cases we reviewed in the course of our research, the court simply
accepted the proposed order, with one noted exception. In United States of America v.
Citizens Republic Bancorp, Inc. and Citizens Bank, the defendant bank gave the court reason to believe that something was amiss and the court took quite a different approach. The defendant objected to the claims made by the DOJ in the pleadings which the defendant had not seen until after the terms of settlement had been established. This anomaly opened up the process and demonstrated the pressure placed on a target institution by the federal government and its incentive to settle.

The DOJ had alleged that the defendants, Citizens Republic Bancorp, Inc. and
Citizens Bank, had engaged in a pattern of conduct violating the Fair Housing Act and the
Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA). The proposed Agreed Order imposed a much smaller contribution amount to the settlement fund, but incorporated several of the same elements in its terms as have been seen in other consent orders for other cases.

This proposed order required that the Defendant “enter a partnership” with the City of Detroit to set up a fund in the amount of $1.625 million and provide grants to homeowners to enhance neighborhood stability and revitalization. The program was to be administered by the city or its “designated partner.” The proposed order also required the Defendant to ensure that the Defendant’s lending products and services in the Detroit area were marketed in majority-black census tracts. It also required that the bank hire two Community Development Leaders to focus primarily on generating residential mortgage loans in the “majority-black census tracts of Wayne County” as well as to facilitate the bank’s grant program.

It instated a separate fund in the amount of $400,000 with one half of that fund devoted to advertising and marketing in these same neighborhoods. The consent order required that the other half be spent on consumer education in order to sponsor programs offered by community or governmental organizations engaged in fair lending work.

Furthermore, the proposed order required that the Defendant make $1.5 million available for loan subsidies via a “special financing program” for residents in Wayne County. If the funds were not fully expended, the remaining amount was to be donated to a nonprofit housing organization in the City of Detroit or to such other organization involved with community reinvestment in the City of Detroit.

In its response to the DOJ’s Motion For Entry of Proposed Agreed Order, the Defendant described the process by which the DOJ pursued the settlement.69 It became apparent that the motivation for these banks was to settle rather than resist the claims of the DOJ.

The Defendant bank explained that it was not aware of the precise nature of the
charges until the complaint was filed. The Defendant stated:

The precise articulation of the Department’s claim was not made available to
Citizens until the Department provided Citizens with a copy of the Complaint
after it was filed with the Court on May 5, 2011. Citizens disputes the factual
and legal basis for the claim presented, and, to the extent permitted, has
included in the proposed “Agreed Order” as Part III, the “Position of Citizens
Bank” that describes its actual conduct and performance.

It went on to illuminate some of Bancorp’s considerations in reaching a settlement:
Nonetheless, threatened litigation by the Department imposes a substantial
financial burden on Citizens, particularly in the context of current economic
conditions. Thus, Citizens entered into negotiations with the Department in
an effort to avoid contested litigation. The only option afforded by the Department to avoid contested litigation was the filing of a complaint and the simultaneous presentation of an “Agreed Order.”

The Defendant further stated: Citizens pursued the negotiations to avoid the cost and burden of litigation…. The important point for Citizens is that the voluntary resolution will put the matter to rest, through entry of the Agreed Order. Then the Defendant bank reiterated their reasons for entering into settlements over litigation, which had little to do with culpability:

Perhaps there are some inconsistencies here because Citizens continues to
deny a factual or legal basis for the claim, but agrees to take certain action to
resolve the claim of the Department. But it is not uncommon for businesses
facing the prospect of very expensive litigation against the government to
seek a way to avoid the cost. If reasonable business objectives can be met,
Citizens prefers settlement to the alternative of expensive litigation, and
indeed would prefer to use the bank’s resources to assist the City of Detroit
in its continued efforts to stabilize housing conditions in the City. The bank
currently faces economic challenges that further favor settlement over
litigation.

When faced with the prospect of extended litigation, expense, and bad publicity,
many targeted institutions choose to settle rather than resist the questionable and
disputable claims brought by the DOJ.

On May 24, 2011, the Court issued a scathing order denying approval of the
proposed consent order. The Court had its own reasons for refusing to approve
the consent order.

The Court noted: In reviewing the Agreed Order, it (1) fails to define terms; (2) lacks completeness; (3) contains superfluous clauses; (4) lacks clarity; and (5) is void of provisions for the Court to effectively oversee the parties’ obligations under the Agreed Order during its anticipated term.

Others, in the banking industry, have criticized the DOJ practices that have
resulted in these settlements.…there is a troubling lack of transparency with the DOJ’s growing fair lending actions. DOJ’s unprecedented actions and the legal theory upon which they are based are shrouded in secrecy, as targeted banks are forced to enter into
confidentiality agreements. Community banks work hard to comply with laws and regulations and consistently seek information and guidance on how to implement applicable rules in this ever-changing lending and regulatory environment. By requiring banks to enter into confidentiality agreements regarding the investigations, enforcement and settlement agreements, DOJ is thwarting banks’ ability to assess and refine, if necessary, their policies or practices to ensure compliance with fair lending laws.

This approach is counter to the intent of well-functioning fair lending laws.
Mr. Perez and the newly created Fair Lending Unit in the Housing and Civil
Enforcement Section of the DOJ had a different take on the Citizens case. In his estimation this had been a cooperative effort to right wrongs recognized by all.

He states:
Both Citizens and Midwest worked collaboratively with the Department to develop
these creative solutions, and were eager to find solutions that allow them to remedy
the harm done while also reaching new customers.

Toward the end of his remarks Mr. Perez addressed concerns that he had gleaned
from “…listening sessions we have conducted with industry stakeholders.” Among those
concerns were “transparency” in the DOJ processes; promptness of decisions by the DOJ
because “the cloud of uncertainty that looms during the pendency of an investigation can take a toll” and uncertainty regarding the legal theories that the DOJ was using. Mr. Perez described an “…unprecedented level of collaboration and coordination between DOJ and its partner agencies.”

The banking industry was concerned about the “harmful and inappropriate fair lending actions” of the DOJ, as expressed in a letter addressed to Eric Holder. The Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs United States Senate made this observation: …the DOJ used the settlement process to achieve policy goals—including the
distribution of hundreds of millions of dollars from private companies to third-party
housing counseling groups—that would not have been possible in litigation. In other words, the DOJ used the threat of litigation—and the corresponding financial and reputational costs—to cause banks to take actions that a court would not have
ordered them to do. (emphasis added)

Even as early as 2010, some members of Congress had begun to take notice that all was not right in the new administration’s Justice Department.

HEADLINE JUNE 27, 2017: Hidden Government Forcing Taxpayers To Finance Their Own Destruction

Peter Schweizer‘s Government Accountability Institute issued a report in October 2016, “Follow the Money: How the Department of Justice Funds Progressive Activists,” that detailed the stunning amount of money the DoJ has been awarding to left-wing groups. Under Eric Holder’s DoJ, financial institutions paid an unprecedented $110 billion in fines, much of which came in through out-of-court settlements.

Many of the cases were based on tenuous grounds, such as “disparate impact” which assumes racism based solely on the proportion of loans awarded to minorities. According to the report, “The DOJ used the threat of litigation—and the corresponding financial and reputational costs—to cause banks to take actions that a court would not have ordered them to do.”

We are still trying to figure out where it all went. But we do have some ideas. As with Obama’s corrupt green energy subsidies, it seems apparent that Holder’s DoJ extorted huge sums from banks specifically to funnel money to political allies. Schweizer documents how the DoJ flagrantly misused this money:

Muslims Across America In Full Celebration Mode Commemorating The “hard work” of Senator Rubio


Who needs to be concerned with Muslim terrorists running around when you have Marco Rubio up at the White House actively furthering their cause for a complete takeover of our country!

On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States.” The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

Muslims across America were in full celebration mode commemorating the “hard work” of Senator Rubio, where EmgageUSA put out the following public statement:

Thanks to the hard work of Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Kamala Harris we have achieved the approval of Senate Resolution 118, an anti-hate crimes bill drafted by Emerge-USA. It is days like this that Americans are reminded of this country’s founding principles: equal opportunity, freedom, justice. We are proud to help support the protection of these rights #amoreperfectunion #theamericandream.”

Anti-blasphemy laws have been a massive victory for Muslims across the world, as now followers of Islam can have people who speak out or criticize their religion thrown into prison. We continue to hear horrifying stories coming out of Europe and Canada where citizens are being rounded up and jailed for speaking out against Islam, as courts are now turning their backs on their very own citizens in order to pander to the very group of people who want to kill them. Now breaking news is confirming that a Senator Marco Rubio has just gotten a bill passed in the Senate that will make speaking out against Muslims a crime, in a shocking move of treason towards the American people that will leave you speechless.

We had enough damage done to our country under the tyrannical rule of Barack Hussein Obama, who was nothing more than a domestic terrorist who worked tirelessly to further the mission of radical Muslims around the world. Well now it appears as though Marco Rubio has just picked up the torch of treason, as he has just been exposed as the TRAITOR who spear-headed a bill that will make speaking out against Islam illegal, which was written by a Muslim terror organization with direct ties to Al Qaeda. Creeping Sharia reported:

On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, “Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States.” The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

Muslims across America were in full celebration mode commemorating the “hard work” of Senator Rubio, where EmgageUSA put out the following public statement:

Thanks to the hard work of Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Kamala Harris we have achieved the approval of Senate Resolution 118, an anti-hate crimes bill drafted by Emerge-USA. It is days like this that Americans are reminded of this country’s founding principles: equal opportunity, freedom, justice. We are proud to help support the protection of these rights #amoreperfectunion #theamericandream.”

So how bad has Rubio screwed over the American people? Here’s exactly what’s in the resolution which the Senate has just passed:

“…Federal law enforcement officials, working with State and local officials… to expeditiously investigate all credible reports of hate crimes and incidents and threats against minorities in the United States and to hold the perpetrators of those crimes, incidents, or threats accountable and bring the perpetrators to justice; encourages the Department of Justice and other Federal agencies to work to improve the reporting of hate crimes; and… encourages the development of an inter-agency task force led by the Attorney General to collaborate on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities…”

What’s chilling is that THIS BILL HAS PASSED THE SENATE and has now gone on to the House, where almost the exact same verbiage was introduced as H.Res. 257. If passed, this law will create an “inter-agency task force” that will then go after people who speak out against Muslims, who are a “protected class.” H.Res. 257 urges:

“…the development of an inter-agency task force led by the Attorney General and bringing together the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Education, the Department of State, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to collaborate on the development of effective strategies and efforts to detect and deter hate crime in order to protect minority communities”. The House Resolution was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary on April 6 and from there it was referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations on April 21.

Why the hell is Marco Rubio selling us down the river in order to further the cause of radical Islam? The Muslim groups he worked with to get these bills passed are not “peaceful” Islamists either. EmgageUSA’s leader Khurrum Wahid is currently on a terror watch list for his extensive work with Al Qaeda, and as a lawyer, Wahid defended Omar Ahmed Abu Ali, who was sentenced to 30 years in prison for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush!

FYI: Muslims are also pushing hard to be classified as a ‘protected minority/class’ when they should be classified as a Terrorist Group. This is absolutely unbelievable!

THE HOMOSEXUAL MANIFESTO EXPOSED


By Michael Swift, “Gay Revolutionary.” Reprinted from The Congressional Record of the United States Congress. First printed in Gay Community News, February 15-21 1987

We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.

Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.

All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.

All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.

If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.

We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.

Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.

We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.

There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.

We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.

The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence–will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.

GAY WOLF IN SHEEPCLOTHING

All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.

The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.

We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.

gayroller

We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.

Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.

Trump supporters NEED to read & share this letter written by retired US Army Veteran, Ray Mckinney: June 16, 2017


The Honorable Donald J. Trump
President of the United States of America
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President,

I am an 82 year old solider who loves his country but at this point in time, I am powerfully confused, and so are millions and millions of your other loyal supporters.

I entered the Army back in the early 1950’s when Dwight D Eisenhower was president and I earned the grand sum of 52 dollars a month as a private. Over time, I advanced in rank and eventually decided that I wanted to be an officer who could best serve the needs of my country.

With that said, Mr. President, I have laid the groundwork proving that my entire lifetime has been that of a dedicated soldier and patriot. I have loved my country dearly, all of my life. I still do. It is the only country I can call home. It is the only country I have ever wanted to call home. It is the only country that most of the people who now live here will ever know …yet there are many misguided fools who want to bring Ole Glory down and ‘turn the lights off in Georgia’.

But something is happening in my country today that causes great alarm in this old soldier. There is a movement afloat to unseat you, our legally elected president and install a “deep state coup” by any means possible. As you know, this movement has members of both political parties active in this goal. Treason knows no party or person.

You Sir are the target. If you can be removed by whatever means possible, then there will be no hope for our country. You are our last line of defense. Your opposition knows this, and the people who put you in office also know this …… there is an ‘undeclared war’ going on at this very moment for the control of America.

You Sir are in the eye of the storm.

If you fall, all of America will fall. Be strong Sir. Know that we are with you.

I have lived, and served under 11 presidents in my lifetime. You Mr President are the 12th. Most of them have been politicians. But, you Sir will be the first president who has ever had a successful business background. That is exactly why I decided to support you in the Republican Primary and the fully endorse you in the general election.

My daughter asks me before the primary season started who I would be supporting. I said, “Donald Trump”. She then followed up her question up by saying, “Daddy, are you crazy, Trump is not a politician”!

I said, “Debbie dear, that’s exactly why I’m voting for him”! … She said, “Daddy please explain your motives in detail”! I did.

I said, “Sweetheart would you agree that the United States of America is nothing but one great big business”? She agreed to that. I then ask, “OK, if America is the biggest business in world, does it not make good sense to elect a businessman to run that business, someone with a proven business record”? She had to agree with that too!

I then said, “The road to hell is paved with the souls of sleazy politicians with ‘good intentions’ but somehow they always went south … and so did the politicians”! My vote will go to the man who can make America into the greatness it use to be.

And anyone who can take 5 million dollars and turn it into 5 billion dollars has my vote and my loyalty. And that man was Donald John Trump.

Mr. Trump came along when America was in great trouble. For 35 years or more, the American people have been lead down the primrose path toward a ‘one world government’ where they would unwillingly lose their sovereignty, their birthrights, any and all freedoms and liberties that had been guaranteed by our Constitution.

Our forefather who gave us these rights must have been turning over in their graves as all this liberal nonsense progressed under the leadership of the ‘progressive’ democrat party, and the republicans who also thought and acted as democrats.

Mr. President, you are a breath of fresh air and the only hope for a decaying republic. You Sir are the only person who can save the future generations from the onslaught of what has been planned for them.

The veterans who supported you, the brave men who have died for our country and a cause, and the citizens of this country who voted and gave you a mandate to ‘clean that damn swamp out’ are now confused.

We do not understand how the picture has changed since you took office. We do not understand how the only way you get things done is by Executive Order. We cannot comprehend why members of the Republican Party refuse to work with you on things to improve America.

We do understand the hatred and viciousness that is currently being displayed by the democrats and their ‘progressive view’. We do understand that their goals and objectives are the only things that matter to them. In their simple minds, “the ends always justify the means”.

But, in the minds of the patriots, who number in the millions who care for this nation, and who call you Mr. President, the ends and these means of those acting to create a deep state are treasonous.

We have watch since you took office a steady and unrelenting stream of criticism of everything you do. We are amazed because those things have been for the betterment of America. To us, this is proof that your opponents are many in Washington, and they do not give a ‘tinker’s damn’ about the good of this country. They have one objective and one objective only … to bring you down.

In doing so, they knowing will destroy all hopes our nation has for rising from the ashes of the past. They do not care. For over a quarter of a century, their goal has been to ‘talk their trash’ and take this country into a one world government where America will be dragged down to the status of a ‘banana republic’ … or less.

I did not devote my entire life to seeing this happen. I have devoted myself to the principles contained in our Constitution, and by the grace of God, I am prepared to die defending those principles. And may I also add there are millions and millions of other veterans and patriots who feel the same as I do.

Mr. President, we understand you have no ‘bully pulpit’ as have all of your previous successors. We also understand the main stream media is now nothing but ‘bought and paid talking heads and political whores’ for those who wish to destroy our republic. We understand the anguish you must feel every day. And you do this with out drawing a single penny from the treasury. You Sir are a true patriot, and we thank you..

But Sir, remember that we are with you. Regardless of what the media try’s to convince the public to be true, always remember, ‘We Are with You’. The millions and millions of law abiding citizens who put you in office are still in your corner, and will be there for the full ‘15 rounds’ . And make no mistake my friends; … we are indeed in a fight.

We are in a fight for the very survival of this republic.

But your loyal patriots are confused, Sir. We are lacking direction and we are lacking orders. We are in need of guidance, and we are in need of how we can help in your struggle. After all, it’s our struggle too..

As a patriot, and as a law abiding citizen, and someone who deeply cares for his country, as does everyone else who voted for you, we ask that you step forward and tell us how we can help you in this apparent overt battle that is aimed to bring you and our country down with you.

Don’t tell us to donate money to any organization, tell us how to be active and vocal and how to ‘step up to the plate and take a swing at the ball’. Anyone can throw a dollar or two into a pot, but how many are willing and able to stand up and speak out … I, for one am, sick and tired of hearing of nothing but democrat propaganda 24 hours a day! If what they say was true, I may be more inclined to listen, but when it’s nothing but ‘fake news’, I am not inclined to listen, and neither are millions and millions more like me.

So Mr. President, the millions and millions who put you in office are powerfully confused. We do not understand how you are being investigated by a Special Prosecutor for no wrongdoing, and at the same time, the “real guilty from the previous administration” are ‘stoking the fires’ under your feet! Please explain.

I make no apologies for the length of this letter Mr. President. I have said what I and millions of others who voted for you strongly feel, and we still support you even stronger today. You need our help to defeat this scourge and drain that damn swamp. We The People are here to help you.

But ‘we the people’ need to fully understand how you would like to employ us! We cannot work on assumptions. We work with facts and only facts. So please find a way to tell us how we can help. We will not give this country up without a fight, with or without you. Talk to us, Sir. Let us help you.

Sir, I remain your loyal servant and a true patriot of these United States of America. Talk to us !!!

Ray McKinney

trump lions please go hard core

This additional comment is from Vladimir Alexander

President Trump is in all actuality a Receiver in a preemptive fight against the Bankruptcy of The United States due to mismanagement of the political and Global elite that want to milk it dry. The socialist nations of the EU, China and the elitist in the US that make $Trillions off of the US while the US elitist keep the population in working debt or welfare slavery as they offer, as the Romans did “Circus & Bread” which is now food, housing and entertainment to keep the masses placated until they have their One World Nation. During any business failure that leads to BANKRUPTCY there are those that fight to keep their power and wealth at all costs to the extent of killing the Golden Goose to claim all its Golden Eggs at once but end up with a Dead Goose. As the Slogan goes “Drain The Swamp” but there are numerous alligators from every part of the spectrum but all just want one thing “Status Quo”; a Bureaucratic Behemoth that allows the pilfering of $Trillions by the elitists: It is the one element in our institutions that sets up the pretense of having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody. Being kept in place with exorbitant wages and pensions that force them to vote for a living rather than work for a living…. Right now they are fighting with every means possible to keep the “Status Quo” and the loser will be the people of the US including those Bureaucrats because; in the case of any business merger the removal of “headcount” is inevitable and that “headcount” will be the standard of living in the US… “RLTW”

 

A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF 53 PEOPLE WHO COMPRISE THE CLINTON BODY COUNT


Most people can go their whole life without experiencing a mysterious murder or strange suicide of a friend or co-worker. That being said, below is a comprehensive list of 53 mysterious deaths connected to the nefarious Bill and Hilary Clinton.

Volunteers Wanted. State Leaders Willing To Do What It Takes To Rescue Liberty For Your Great State. Join Citizen Initiatives Today! Be Part of History in the Making! Discover How We The People Will Countermand the Tyranny in 2017.


Friends, We are very close to losing the protections we have in the Constitution. There is a tyranny looming over our heads and only the Countermand Amendment can stop it peacefully. State legislators alone are the final arbiters in all Constitutional matters, not the delegates they send to a Convention. It is past time for you to join us in your State to secure the 34 Article V Applications on Congress that are needed to convene the Countermand Amendment Convention and secure Ratification by 38.
We don’t need 8 to 10 different amendments because The Countermand is THAT POWERFUL. 8 short clauses and fewer than 400 words of pure inspired good Old Fashioned American Ingenuity that our Founding Fathers would be proud of.
The Countermand Amendment does not alter the Constitution in any way. It simply allows the States the proper authority to protect their sovereignty from Federal or other forms of encroachment. There is not much time left before we are all under a tyranny that forbids us from properly using Article V. Only the States can restore our Constitutional Republic with Article V.
The Countermand Amendment stands apart from and independent of all other Article V initiatives. We will cooperate with any of them if they do not surrender sovereignty and deliberative Legislature authority. We have one chance to get this right. We must not be duped by flawed claims by others who have assumed that an Article V Convention is a ConCon (or some modified form) and that delegates are equivalent to the delegates at the 1787 Convention. Article V delegates are Ambassadors of the Legislatures, not free agents. They are not charged with the awesome task of creating a new Constitutional document and government.
Our State Legislatures need the power of The Countermand NOW!
Don’t miss the video messages from Alaska and Pennsylvania State Legislators who are endorsing The Countermand in their Great States.

Globalists Continue To Push The Lie That Treaties Are Binding Upon The United States Citizens: Treaties Can Be Nullified By States Or Statutes & Obama Removed From Office!


Our Senate and President (not to mention that he is a usurper) lack lawful authority to enter into a treaty that conflicts with The Constitution so even signed and ratified it would not be a valid treaty.

Reblogged from Political Vel Craft dated July 2012

The following qualifies as one of the greatest lies the globalists continue to push upon the American people. That lie is: “Treaties supersede the U.S. Constitution“.

The Second follow-up lie is this one: “A treaty, once passed, cannot be set aside”. HERE ARE THE CLEAR IRREFUTABLE FACTS: The U.S. Supreme Court has made it very clear that

1) Treaties do not override the U.S. Constitution. 2) Treaties cannot amend the Constitution. And last, 3) A treaty can be nullified by a statute passed by the U.S. Congress (or by a sovereign State or States if Congress refuses to do so), when the State deems a treaty the performance of a treaty is self-destructive. The law of self-preservation overrules the law of obligation in others. When you’ve read this thoroughly, hopefully, you will never again sit quietly by when someone — anyone — claims that treaties supercede the Constitution. Help to dispell this myth. “This [Supreme] Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty.” – Reid v. Covert, October 1956, 354 U.S. 1, at pg 17.

This case involved the question: Does the NATO Status of Forces Agreement (treaty) supersede the U.S. Constitution? Keep reading. The Reid Court (U.S. Supreme Court) held in their Opinion that,

“… No agreement with a foreign nation can confer power on the Congress, or any other branch of government, which is free from the restraints of the Constitution. Article VI, the Supremacy clause of the Constitution declares, “This Constitution and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all the Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land…’

“There is nothing in this language which intimates that treaties and laws enacted pursuant to them do not have to comply with the provisions of the Constitution nor is there anything in the debates which accompanied the drafting and ratification which even suggest such a result…

“It would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, as well as those who were responsible for the Bill of Rights – let alone alien to our entire constitutional history and tradition – to construe Article VI as permitting the United States to exercise power UNDER an international agreement, without observing constitutional prohibitions. (See:Elliot’s Debates 1836 ed. – pgs 500-519).

“In effect, such construction would permit amendment of that document in a manner not sanctioned by Article VI. The prohibitions of the Constitution were designed to apply to all branches of the National Government and they cannot be nullified by the Executive or by the Executive and Senate combined.”

Did you understand what the Supreme Court said here? No Executive Order, Presidential Directive, Executive Agreement, no NAFTA, GATT/WTO agreement/treaty, passed by ANYONE, can supersede the Constitution. FACT. No question! At this point the Court paused to quote from another of their Opinions; Geofroy v. Riggs, 133 U.S. 258 at pg. 267 where the Court held at that time that,

“The treaty power as expressed in the Constitution, is in terms unlimited except by those restraints which are found in that instrument against the action of the government or of its departments and those arising from the nature of the government itself and of that of the States. It would not be contended that it extends so far as to authorize what the Constitution forbids, or a change in the character of the government, or a change in the character of the States, or a cession of any portion of the territory of the latter without its consent.”

Assessing the GATT/WTO parasitic organism in light of this part of the Opinion, we see that it cannot attach itself to its host (our Republic or States) in the fashion the traitors in our government wish, without our acquiescing to it. The Reid Court continues with its Opinion:

“This Court has also repeatedly taken the position that an Act of Congress, which MUST comply with the Constitution, is on full parity with a treaty, the statute to the extent of conflict, renders the treaty null. It would be completely anomalous to say that a treaty need not comply with the Constitution when such an agreement can be overridden by a statute that must conform to that instrument.”

The U.S. Supreme court could not have made it more clear : TREATIESDO NOT OVERRIDE THE CONSTITUTION, AND CANNOT, IN ANY FASHION, AMEND IT !!! CASE CLOSED. Now we must let our elected “representatives” in Washington and the State legislatures know that we no longer believe the BIG LIE… we know that we are not bound by unconstitutional Treaties, Executive Orders, Presidential Directives, and other such treasonous acts.

Here’s what Thomas Jefferson said on the right to renounce treaties:

“Compacts then, between a nation and a nation, are obligatory on them as by the same moral law which obliges individuals to observe their compacts. There are circumstances, however, which sometimes excuse the non-performance of contracts between man and man; so are there also between nation and nation. When performance, for instance, becomes impossible, non-performance is not immoral; so if performance becomes self-destructive to the party, the law of self-preservation overrules the law of obligation in others”.

pg 317 – “The Life and Selected Writings of Thomas Jefferson,” A. Koch & Wm. Peden, Random House 1944, renewed 1972. Jefferson also said in a letter to Wilson C. Nicholas on Sept. 7, 1803, Ibid. pg 573

“Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction [interpretation]. I say the same as to the opinion of those who consider the grant of the treaty making power as boundless. If it is, then we have no Constitution.” ______________________________________________________________Further evidence:

Excerpt from a letter from U.S. Senator, Arlen Specter, (R. Penn.) to constituent, November 3, 1994.

“Dear Mr. Neely:”Thank you for contacting my office regarding the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. … I have signed on as a cosponsor of Senator Bradley’s resolution [SR 70, which urges the president to seek the advice and consent of the Senate for ratification] because I believe that the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child is an appropriate step in the direction of promoting the well-being of children throughout the world. [he goes on to mention concerns that the treaty would subjugate familial and parental responsibility to an international entity, which he denies] “… Secondly, the Convention would not override the U.S. Constitution; rather, as in the case of any treaty, any provision that conflicts with our Constitution would be void in our country… “

[CDR Note: It is our belief that Arlen Specter would not have been as truthful regarding Constitutional Supremacy over treaties if he had a clue that this letter to a constituent would have found its way into the hands or eyes of the public.]

_________________________________________________

Logical deduction:      No law or treaty supersedes the Supreme Law of the Land.  ‘Supreme’… meaning ‘highest or greatest’.  What is higher than highest or greater than greatest, other than our Creator?  The Constitution acknowledges our God-given, unalienable rights, and secures those rights in that acknowledgement.         The Constitution gives the US Senate authority to ratify treaties with other nations. Americans have been propagandized into believing that those treaties become the supreme law of the land superseding the Constitution. Let’s examine this deception closely and dispel the myth once and for all. Article VI of the Constitution states:

Clause 2 – “This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof, and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution [of any state] or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”Clause 3 – “The senators and representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executives and judicial officers, both of the United States and the several states, shall be bound by oath of affirmation to support this Constitution .”

Laws made in pursuance of this Constitution are laws which are made within the strict and limited confines of the Constitution itself. No federal, state, or international law, rule or bureaucratic regulation and no state constitution can supersede B or be repugnant to B this Constitution.

Treaties made under the authority of the United States… the United States (federal government) was authorized by and on behalf of the people and in pursuance of this Constitution to enter into certain treaties with other governments. The United States (federal government) obtains its authority solely from the Constitution. It would be ludicrous to think that it has the power to circumvent (via treaties) that which grants it its authority.

In Clause 3, it is made clear that every elected official, both federal and state, is bound by oath to support this Constitution. Who can rightly, and genuinely claim to be given the power to destroy that which they are elected and sworn to uphold?

The powers granted by the Constitution cannot sanely be construed to provide the authority to usurp, pre-empt or eradicate it.       The U.S. Supreme Court as cited above correctly ruled that the supremacy of the Constitution overrides treaties. It should be noted that if any Court, be it a State, Federal or the U.S. Supreme Court, should ever rule otherwise, the decision would be repugnant to the Constitution and the ruling would be null and void.

The answer to this question is self-evident.

The Constitution authorizes the United States to enter into treaties with other nations B the word Anation@ although not explicit, is certainly implied. The United Nations is an Organization – a Global Corporate Bureaucracy.The ‘experts’ in international law, commerce, banking, environment, etc.; and a cadre of alleged conservative / Christian-conservative leaders — lawyer, Dame of Malta, Phyllis Schlafly being a prime example — have been spewing forth propaganda to instill and further the myth of ‘treaty-supremacy’ for decades.

Their ‘expertise’ is an illusion created apparently with hopes to instill a sense of inferiority in the ‘common man’ (their term) so we will all defer to their superior intelligence. Let’s not go there. Here’s a perfect example of ‘expert’ propaganda on the supremacy question: On April 11, 1952, Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles (cfr), speaking before the American Bar Association in Louisville, Kentucky said…

“Treaties make international law and also they make domestic law. Under our Constitution, treaties become the supreme law of the land…. Treaty law can override the Constitution. Treaties, for example, …can cut across the rights given the people by their constitutional Bill of Rights.”

Mr. Dulles is confused about the People’s rights. To repeat an earlier statement of fact: the Constitution doesn’t ‘give’ us rights. The Constitution acknowledges and secures our inherent, Creator-endowed rights. What Creator gives, no man can take away. The Dulles brothers worked (lied) long and hard to firmly establish the treaty-supremacy myth. And they realized it would have to be done by deceit — propaganda. Admittedly by propaganda.

“There is no indication that American public opinion, for example, would approve the establishment of a super state, or permit American membership in it. In other words, time – a long time – will be needed before world government is politically feasible… This time element might seemingly be shortened so far as American opinion is concerned by an active propaganda campaign in this country…”

Allen W. Dulles (cfr) from a UN booklet, Headline Series #59 (New York: The Foreign Policy Association., Sept.-Oct., 1946) pg 46.      The question of “nationhood” in reference to the United Nations seems to have been addressed by the errant Congress.  A quick fix apparently took place in the U.S. Senate on March 19, 1970. According to the Anaheim (Cal) Bulletin, 4-20-1970, the Senate ratified a resolution recognizing the United Nations Organization as a sovereign nation. That would be tantamount to recognizing General Motors as a sovereign nation. Are we beginning to get the picture? Case Closed Sweet Liberty

Second Important Article About The Treaty Myth.

Treaties do not override the Constitution.
By Don Fotheringham In anticipation that our president may sign one or more treaties that conflict with the U.S. Constitution’s limited grant of power, several voices of alarm are contending that a treaty can override, or in effect amend, our Constitution. Although that view has gained some currency, it is a myth that contradicts the intent of those who framed the Constitution. And it violates any reasonable interpretation of that document. Origin of the Myth The frightful idea that U.S. treaties with foreign nations supercede the Constitution has been regularly promoted since the Eisenhower era.
 divider gif
1 It was given a big boost in 1952 when Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, a founding member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), made the following statement:
divider gif
2 … congressional laws are invalid if they do not conform to the Constitution, whereas treaty laws can override the Constitution. Treaties, for example, can take powers away from Congress and give them to the President; they can take powers from the states and give them to the Federal Government, or to some international body and they can cut across the rights given the people by the Constitutional Bill of Rights.
 divider gif
3 It would be hard to find a more preposterous assertion. Sadly, however, many citizens have been led to believe that treaties do override the Constitution. Could anyone really think our founding fathers spent four months in convention, limiting the size, power and scope of government, and then provided for their work to be destroyed by one lousy treaty?
 divider gif
But one might object, what about Article VI? Article VI establishes the supremacy of U.S. laws and treaties made within the bounds of the Constitution. It is called the Supremacy Clause, because it places federal laws and treaties that are made pursuant to the Constitution above state constitutions, laws. and treaties. Some Important History This was needed because, contrary to their agreement under the Articles of Confederation, certain states had violated their trust and entered into treaties with foreign powers.
 divider gif
During the convention,
Madison said: “Experience had evinced a constant tendency in the States to encroach on federal authority; to violate national Treaties, to infringe the rights and interests of each other.”
divider gif
4 State-made pacts often conflicted with peace and trade treaties wanted by the Confederation Congress for the benefit of all thirteen states, making it hard for Congress to consummate better agreements with other nations. This also led to fierce contention between the states in their effort to monopolize the import of goods from Europe and the Indian tribes. But more serious dangers arose in matters of security, for should one state be at war with a foreign power while a sister state honors its peace agreement with the same enemy, the security of the entire Confederation would be threatened.
divider gif
5 In an effort to head off such dangers, the Confederation Congress frequently attempted to nullify
state-made treaties in the state courts (there were no federal courts). But as might be expected, the state judges ruled inevitably in favor of their own states, pursuant to the state laws and constitutions.
divider gif
The 1787 Convention corrected that problem by making certain only federal treaties would be recognized as valid. In this light, it is not hard to understand why paragraph two of Article VI is worded as follows: This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof, and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land, and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, any thing in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding. Upon ratification of the Constitution, the state treaties were nullified.
divider gif
Thereafter, only federal treaties were recognized as supreme, regardless of any remaining state provisions to the contrary. Moreover, under the new Constitution the founders established a Supreme Court, granting it original jurisdiction over treaty controversies, and thereby removing from state judges jurisdiction over treaty cases. In addition to quelling strife among the states, Article VI accomplished a major objective of the Convention, mainly that of placing the United States in a position to speak to the world with one voice.
 divider gif
United States treaties are created when proposed by the President, with the advice and consent of the Senate. The power of the President and the Senate, in their treaty-making capacity, was never intended to be a power greater than the Constitution. Citizens who met in the state ratifying conventions (1787 to 1790) to examine with great care the provisions of the proposed Constitution had a correct understanding of the Supremacy Clause.
divider gif
During the ratifying debates, James Madison answered questions regarding the new national charter and commented on the extent of the treaty-making power under Article VI: “I do not conceive that power is given to the President and Senate to dismember the empire, or to alienate any great, essential right. I do not think the whole legislative authority have this power. The exercise of the power must be consistent with the object of its delegation.”
 divider gif
6 In the same discussion
Madison said: “Here, the supremacy of a treaty is contrasted with the supremacy of the laws of the states. It cannot be otherwise supreme.” That is, a treaty cannot in any other manner or situation be supreme. Thomas Jefferson: “I say the same as to the opinion of those who consider the grant of treaty- making to be boundless. If it is, then we have no Constitution.”
divider gif
But we do have a Constitution. Its life and viability depend entirely on the small number of citizens who 1) understand the document, and 2) who equally understand the forces at work to destroy it. At this point enough time has passed, and enough false teachings have been promulgated, to cause modern Americans to fall for the treaty power ploy. It is not surprising that John Foster Dulles, a ranking member of the CFR, should in 1952 circulate the treaty-power heresy that yet prevails.
divider gif
It is time for serious reflection on the words of Edmond Burke, “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.” Those who seek to preserve the sovereignty of the United States must work energetically to expose the Dulles delusion — the ridiculous idea that treaties have intrinsic powers greater than the Constitution.

Published on 19 Nov 2015

PA State Rep Cris Dush gives a detailed explanation of constitutional laws which allow the states to refuse and rebut federal authority; in the case he speaks of, refusing a possible influx of Syrian refugees into Pennsylvania and neighboring states.

 

We are alerting our State Legislatures and State Governors trying to share with them and show them this brilliant and peaceful remedy so that the States may regain respect and stop the neverending Federal Mandates passed down by bad court decisions, executive orders, unelected bureaucrats and federal agencies etc.”

We have a viable and simple strategy and powerful remedy that is being overlooked. I pray you investigate further. Citizen Iniatives team has been working diligently to advance The Article V Countermand Amendment Convention.. Making very good progress thru State Legislatures and working to make sure all The State Governors also know about this effective and peaceful solution to stop federal government overreach so that your Great State may retain your rights and liberty.
Together we WILL rein in The Federal Government! Will you sponsor and support The Countermand?

Thank you for taking the time to investigate The Art 5 Countermand. These are the 3 necessary documents that total 7 pages. At the bottom of this message I have left you a few extra goodies to help you figure out what we are trying to do… It is very simple and quite elegant. Our founders were GENIOUS!!!!
Charles Kacprowicz has discovered the missing piece to the Article V Puzzle. Our State Legislatures need the power of The Countermand NOW!

1) APPLICATION ON CONGRESS
Single Issue Countermand Amendment Convention
To assure that Congress will convene the Countermand Amendment Convention it is important that all Calling States have identical Titles and language in their Applications.
For a PDF copy of the Application on Congress click this link: http://citizeninitiatives.org/amendment_countermands/call_on_congress_countermand.pdf

2) COUNTERMAND AMENDMENT
To assure a safe, quick and successful Countermand Amendment Convention this text must be pre-approved by Calling States and included in the Delegate Resolution.
For a PDF copy of the Countermand Amendment click: http://citizeninitiatives.org/amendment_countermands/countermand_amendment.pdf

3) DELEGATE RESOLUTION COUNTERMAND AMENDMENT
Delegates are Ambassadors of their State Legislatures, they are not free agents! To assure a safe, quick and successful Convention it is necessary that all Calling States have the same instructions to their delegates to the Convention. This will prevent possible violations of Article I, Section10 prohibiting Interstate Agreements without the consent of Congress. The Governor has no Article V authority and does not have to sign this Resolution.

Please print the links and discover for yourself the beauty and power of The Countermand Amendment and the genius of The Citizen Initiatives well-defined Article V strategy before you sign off on The Convention of States approach of giving them your authority in exchange for their promises of an orderly convention and effective remedy.

This charts shows which priority States (meaning States congressional sessions that begin and end early 2016)  States are suing The Federal Government and why. Also it is my understanding that there are 31 States suing over the Syrian refujihad resettle of American States and cities. Tho I have not found that data yet. This much I have vetted. I will have an updated one including ALL States soon.

Headline: Federal encroachments create problems for states

Dear America,

Were you concerned when our States spent precious funds fighting the EPA and illegal amnesty? Are you concerned about other federal encroachments like gun control and Obamacare? Are you concerned about the loss of United States sovereignty to the United Nations and global governance? The answer to restore state sovereignty is the the Countermand Amendment through Article V. We are asking you to support the application for the Countermand Amendment through your state legislature

Citizen Initiatives has the answer with the Countermand Amendment. The Countermand can be used to restore our constitutional republic safely and quickly. Encroachment by the federal government on states rights and individual liberties has surpassed alarming proportions: executive orders, congressional statutes, court decisions, and agency regulations. The Countermand gives each state back its sovereignty. The states created the federal government with limited powers. The Founders provided Article V to keep the federal government contained, and it is time for the states to use their constitutional powers to contain the overwhelming federal overreach. With the Countermand, 60% (30) of the states can repeal and revoke any federal encroachment on the sovereignty and the liberties of the citizens. The Countermand can be used to repeal or countermand:
Obamacare,
EPA and energy regulations,
Supreme Court decisions,
federal land grabs,
executive orders such as the one on immigration,
excessive credit raising the debt limit,
Dodd-Frank
treaties,
and it can be used to protect our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.
And it provides a criminal penalty to anyone breaking the provisions of the Countermand. The Countermand Amendment is “tools with teeth”.
Citizen Initiatives also has an accompanying Delegate Resolution to control the amendment convention. This is the answer to the Article V convention concerns

Liberal Rick Perry teams up with Democrat Joe Manchin to ask Congress for bailouts

Liberal Rick Perry and Democrat Joe Manchin signed letters asking Congress for bailouts.

RGA & DGA Release Joint Letter to Congress

Washington, DC – This morning the Chairman of the Republican Governors Association, Governor Rick Perry, and the Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, Governor Joe Manchin, released a joint letter to Congress urging them to pass an economic recovery package. A copy of the letter is attached and the full text of it is below.

As leaders of our respective organizations, we don’t always see eye to eye on policy, but we come together today with one clear purpose. We strongly urge Congress to leave partisanship at the door and pass an economic recovery package. We both believe that it’s time to stand together for our country.

There is a time for partisanship and there is a time for getting things done. No one likes the hand they’ve been dealt, and now is not the time to assign blame. It is time for Washington, D.C. to step up, be responsible and do what’s in the best interest of American taxpayers and our economy.

This economic crisis is not just impacting Wall Street; it is also making life harder for everyday Americans. Americans across the country and in every demographic are feeling the pinch. If Congress does not act soon, the situation will grow appreciably worse. It’s time for leadership. Congress needs to act now.

Gov. Rick Perry’s Remarks to the Border Summit

Thank you Senator Lucio. President Nevarez, UT-Pan American is to be commended for its vision and leadership in hosting this unprecedented border summit in the beautiful Texas town of Edinburg. My friends from Mexico, including Governor Tomas Yarrington Ruvalcaba of Tamaulipas, and Governor Fernando Canales Clariond of Nuevo Leon, it is an honor to be in your presence. I want to extend my gratitude to our Mexican neighbors for hosting me this July as I sought to learn one of the world’s great languages, Spanish. I enjoyed your hospitality, and was grateful for your patience as I worked on my vocabulary. No longer do I refer to “la verdad” as “la verdura.” I am delighted to see friends from the U.S. side of the border as well, including our distinguished members of the Legislature, and our county and city leaders along the border.

Today we begin a new dialogue about our shared future, a future of promising potential if we work together to solve the challenges we both face. It is fitting that we convene this summit where the great, meandering river known as the Rio Grande – or the Rio Bravo – forms the long border between Texas and Mexico. In years past, that famed body of water has been seen by many as a dividing point, If you were to walk along its banks and look to the other side, based on the stereotypes of the past, you would think you were seeing things a million miles away, instead of a stone’s throw away. But I am here today to say that while we have honest differences, there is more that unites us than divides us. The Rio Grande does not separate two nations, it joins two peoples. Mexico and the United States have a shared history, and a common future. And it is along this border where we will either fail or succeed in addressing the education, health care and transportation needs of our two peoples.

Critical to our future is meeting our border infrastructure needs. We must get traffic moving along the border so that businesses along the border and thousands of miles away can deliver products on time, and continue to grow. Companies from Spokane, Washington to Concord, New Hampshire depend on Texas highways and Texas bridges to move their products south. Seventy percent of all U.S.-Mexico truck traffic goes to, or through, the Lone Star state. Fifteen of our twenty-seven border crossings with Mexico are located in Texas. Fifty-four percent of all U.S.-Mexico trade crosses just between Brownsville and Laredo. This year the Texas legislature appropriated approximately $1 billion more in transportation funding. But more can be done.

With Texas serving as the Gateway to Mexico, it is time that we receive congressional funding that reflects the instrumental role our state plays as a port of entry. With a Texan in the White House, I believe there is no greater opportunity to end the funding discrimination that crippled Texas infrastructure under the previous administration. Good infrastructure is essential to the free flow of commerce. It is a matter of economic fact that free trade lifts the tide for all the boats in the harbor. U.S. trade with Mexico has increased by 500% since 1994. Exports and imports between Texas and Mexico now exceed $100 billion dollars annually. Thousands of jobs have been created for Texas and Mexican workers, confirming the indisputable fact that trade with Mexico is big business for Texas.

The fruits of NAFTA have just begun to ripen. At the same time, we must not allow the roots of the tree to become poisoned. The NAFTA agreement not only signaled a new era of economic possibility, but a new era of bi-national cooperation. That is why it is wrong, and inherently detrimental to our relationship with Mexico for the U.S. Congress to pursue a protectionist policy that forbids Mexican trucks from U.S. roadways. It is bad public policy, and it violates the terms of the NAFTA agreement we agreed to. Mexican trucks that meet our safety standards should be given the same access to U.S. roads as our Canadian neighbors to the north.

Mexico, too, must be vigilant in realizing its treaty obligations. For more than half a century, under the 1944 Water Treaty our two nations have cooperated so that the water needs of both countries are met. But as of late, Mexico is behind in delivering the water it has promised to the U.S. A Mexican judicial injunction now threatens the livelihood of our Rio Grande Valley farmers, and has become a source of contention between our two nations. It is time to end this dispute. I would ask that the Mexican government meet its obligation under the treaty, Texas growers are depending on it.

There are other challenges that require a unified approach, especially in the area of health care. A lack of preventative medicine means conditions that could have been eliminated through childhood immunizations show up in disturbing numbers later in life. Limited availability of medical specialists means conditions like heart disease and diabetes go untreated at alarming rates. In Texas, we recently placed a strong emphasis on preventative care when we expanded access to Medicaid for more low-income children by making the Medicaid enrollment process simpler. We allocated an additional $4 billion to the Medicaid program, and more than $900 million to the Children’s Health Insurance Program. I urged legislators to pass a telemedicine pilot program that will enable, through technology, a sick border resident of limited financial means to receive care from a specialist hundreds of miles away. But the effort to combat disease and illness requires greater cooperative efforts between our two nations. It is a simple truth that disease knows no boundaries. An outbreak of drug-resistant tuberculosis, for example, endangers citizens of both our nations. We have much to gain if we work together to expand preventative care, and treat maladies unique to this region.

Legislation authored by border legislators Pat Haggerty and Eddie Lucio establishes an important study that will look at the feasibility of bi-national health insurance. This study recognizes that the Mexican and U.S. sides of the border compose one region, and we must address health care problems throughout that region. That’s why I am also excited that Texas Secretary of State Henry Cuellar is working on an initiative that could extend the benefits of telemedicine to individuals living on the Mexican side of the border.

As a compassionate state, we know that for our children to succeed, they must not only be healthy, but educated. The future leaders of our two nations are learning their fractions and their ABC’s in classrooms all along this border. Immigrants from around the world are being taught in Texas classrooms, and our history is rich with examples of new citizens who have made great contributions. We must say to every Texas child learning in a Texas classroom, “we don’t care where you come from, but where you are going, and we are going to do everything we can to help you get there.” And that vision must include the children of undocumented workers. That’s why Texas took the national lead in allowing such deserving young minds to attend a Texas college at a resident rate. Those young minds are a part of a new generation of leaders, the doors of higher education must be open to them. The message is simple: educacion es el futuro, y si se puede.

We also know that poverty is not unique to either side of the border. Some of Texas’ poorest citizens live in colonias all along the border. They often lack basic infrastructure many of us take for granted. Just today, the North American Development Bank announced it will provide $6.3 million in funding to hook up colonia residents in six border cities to water and wastewater lines. More than 18,000 residents will benefit from these water or wastewater hookups. And this November, by approving Proposition 2, Texas voters can ensure that their neighbors in colonias have quality roads so that school buses, emergency vehicles and postal trucks can reach residents, and residents can get to a job or a school reliably.

President Fox’s vision for an open border is a vision I embrace, as long as we demonstrate the will to address the obstacles to it. An open border means poverty has given way to opportunity, and Mexico’s citizens do not feel compelled to cross the border to find that opportunity. It means we have addressed pollution concerns, made substantial progress in stopping the spread of disease, and rid our crossings of illicit drug smuggling activity. Clearly we have a long way to go in addressing those issues. At the same time we must continue to deepen our economic ties, expanding opportunities for Mexican and U.S. companies to do business on both sides of the border. The outlook is promising, even if the road to prosperity is a long one. We share a bond as neighbors, and we find our culture north of the Rio Grande to be increasingly defined by the strong traits of people of Hispanic descent. Texas has long enjoyed a unique identity, an identity forged by an independent spirit, and the convergence of many different peoples. We must welcome change in the 21st Century as we have in every century before it.

Today, as we look to the south, we see a rising sun. It is perched above a people whose best days are in front of them. Let us endeavor to make the most of this new day through a new dialogue. Let us work together to combat disease, expand trade and provide educational opportunities. If we do, there are no limits to what we can accomplish for the betterment of all of our citizens. Thank you, and God bless you.

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment. The eternal makes you urgent. You are loath to let compromise or the threat of danger hold you back from striving toward the summit of fulfillment.”
