Is the American Rebellion about to Begin – Gov. Bobby Jindal thinks so

Speaking at a Conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal expressed his belief that Americans were on the verge of a “hostile takeover of Washington.”

Bobby Jindal and ArmyGov. Jindal said that he “could sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.” Many Americans do share the Governor’s frustrations, but is a hostile takeover in the works?

Anti-second amendment efforts have been escalating rapidly over the last few years even though school shooting deaths have actually declined. Are elitists like Harry Reid, Michael Bloomberg, Nancy Pelosi and their special interest groups afraid of losing power? Safety isn’t their real concern as even anti-gun activists have admitted that none of their proposals would do anything to have prevented tragedies like Newtown. What could Nancy and Harry be so concerned about?

What reasons, besides the attempted gun grab, could Americans have for considering outright revolution?

  • President Obama’s healthcare initiative is costing more and providing fewer benefits than promised.
  • The EPA is pushing oppressive regulations on ponds and ditches that many worry will be used to put private property under the control of the Federal Government
  • America’s police departments are becoming more militaristic by the day
  • America is facing an epic immigration crisis due to the federal government’s failure to secure the border
  • Americans no longer trust their government after Benghazi (remember the video that wasn’t really the cause?), the IRS scandal (and now multiple lost hard drives containing evidence)
  • The administration has stymied the economic recovery with ideological plans that prevent an actual recovery – SIX years later!
  • The end of the Iraq war as orchestrated by the President.. and is failing
  • The President’s Syrian solution … wasn’t
  • Libya is a disaster after Obama’s mishandling of it
  • A new cold war is on the horizon with Russia (how’s that reset button working?)
  • Russia and the Chinese are working to cut the U.S. Dollar out as the world’s reserve currency. Our president has nothing to say on the matter.
  • The Senate, under Harry Reid’s leadership has accomplished nothing – as Sen. Reid appears to like it

and much, much more.

So the question isn’t really whether there are enough things that might motivate Americans to take their country back – but rather, how much more can they take?

Even politicians have been pushed past their breaking points. The South Dakota Republican party recently passed a resolution demanding the impeachment of President Barack Obama and even Democrats are lining up to oppose the EPA water rules.

Washington is dysfunctional because the politicians are doing things that American citizens dislike and pushing policies that are hurting American families. The question remains as to whether or not the failures of our leaders is truly leading to a brewing rebellion.

Louisiana constitution set against parents from the get-go

The Louisiana supreme court dealt a blow against parental school choice on Tuesday.

Last year, Governor Bobby Jindal pushed legislation through that would allow parents to use their own tax money to pay for schools they choose instead of the failing public schools the unions would rather funnel children into.

The court did not challenge the idea of allowing parents to choose the best schools for their children, it only challenged the method by which the legislature had chosen to fund those choices – vouchers.

The State constitution does not allow public funds to be used for private education. Louisiana has a founding document that limits the liberty of parents in the area of school choice. A firm strike against hard-working middle and low-income earners.

Louisiana has a history of corruption and government over-control. Now, the Pelican state has a supreme court that believes that unions know better than parents which schools are better for kids.

The voucher program allowed low and middle-income earning families to choose high-performing schools usually only available to the middle-upper class. It appears that that while the Supreme court has pointed out some errors on the part of the legislature, the rather thin vote that allowed the voucher program to pass shows that most Lousianans prefer union-run, poorly-performing public schools and forcing parents into the schools that the ruling elite see fit.

Hopefully, Lousiana voters will realize that if they want their children to get the best education available, they will push for school choice and reject the union oppression that exists today.

Gov. Jindal has stated that state budget funds will be used to keep the program going.

If Louisiana parent are so concerned, their votes will show it next year.

Louisiana Teacher Unions: The Students Are Ours

LA schoolsThrough the work of Governor Bobby Jindal, Louisiana has been increasing its voucher program for students. Allowing families to choose schools that perform may be helping improve education in the state. A recent study by Students First put Louisiana at the top of its education policy report.

The voucher plan, while popular with parents desperate to find quality education in a safe environment for their children, is not liked by the state teachers’ union. In the interview below the president of the LA Teacher Union states that “vouchers are taking their children” as if they were owned by the school. Or, in the words of Governor Bobby Jindal: If you didn’t birth them, wipe them or feed them, they’re not yours!

It’s time to stand up everyone! Your children, your offspring, are not the property of the government or a government agent.

 

 

John Dummett and Liberty Legal vs. “Conservative” Media and Politicians

World Net Daily has just published a story involving John Albert Dummett and his quest to have Barack Obama declared ineligible to serve as President of the United States of America.  The suit centers around the “natural born citizen” status requirement as stated in the Constitution, the Naturalization Act of 1790, and an 1875 Supreme Court decision, Minor vs. Happersett (88 US 162).  This link will take you to the story for all of the details:.

John has teamed up with the Liberty Legal Foundation in this effort to remove what I see as one of the most insidious attempts to subvert the Constitution in this nation’s 235 year history.  The article points out that John has been given standing to sue by the 9th Circuit Court, the most liberal in the nation.  If that bastion of liberal thinking agrees with John there must be something to the case.  Where there is smoke there is fire and this fire is hot.

It has long been known that Obama is not eligible but was certified by Nancy Pelosi and other federal and state officials in what this writer sees as a totally unlawful and treasonous disregard for the Constitution of the United States of America and We the People.  The long form birth certificate issued by the White House is such a poor forgery that I can see it and I am not a computer forensics expert.

If the title of this article surprises you I can explain.  I expect the Democrats, especially the far left like Obama, Pelosi, and their ilk, along with the lame stream media, to ridicule and criticize this action.  That can be expected by anyone with ability to reason.  However, it is surprising to me how many “conservative” politicians and pundits dismiss this case, and those cases leading up to this one as nonsense.

I was listening to the Neal Boortz radio show this morning and heard sit-in host Eric Erickson ridiculing anyone who agreed with the ineligibility position and calling us all “nut cases”.  He went on a long diatribe describing “native born citizen” and attributed the parameters he stated to “natural born citizen”.  There is a great deal of confusion about this although I don’t know why.  I don’t have a college education and I understand the parameters just fine.

Other “conservative” media pundits, including Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, have dismissed the “birther” stand as nonsense also.  Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala), a 15 year member of the United States Senate, also dismissed the eligibility question stating that the State Department said Obama was eligible and the Constitution has nothing to do with eligibility to run for president.  HUH??? Apparently Sen. Sessions, in addition to not reading legislation passing his way, has also not read or does not understand the Constitution he swore an oath to uphold and defend. That problem seems to be rampant in both parties in Washington.

My question is: Why do they dismiss this so off-handedly?  I can’t begin to imagine how so many “conservative” pundits and politicians can dismiss a decision against Obama by an extremely liberal circuit court.  This decision could not only prevent Obama from running again, it could lead to everything he has signed being nullified.  Obamacare gone; czars gone; Elena Kagan gone; Sonia Sotomayor gone; what is there to not like about this?  On the surface this doesn’t make one bit of sense to me.

I think, however, that I can answer the question quite easily.  It has recently come to my attention that Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico, thereby bringing his eligibility into question.  However, as it relates to Romney, his father’s birthplace is the least of my objections.  Mr. Erickson also brought up Marco Rubio, the heir-apparent to the Republican throne, as another person mentioned as not eligible.  I have researched Mr. Rubio and found him to be ineligible also.  I have written about the Rubio case more than once.  The sad thing is that I really like Marco Rubio and everything he stands for.  Even though I respect and admire him, and his positions, my loyalty is to the Constitution first.  I have also looked into Bobby Jindal, another man I admire very much, but guess what.

The question here is: Do we follow the Constitution when it is convenient or do we live by its tenets completely?  I understand that the politicians have strayed far from the original letter and intent of the document and find it easier to do what is in their best interests rather than follow what our founding fathers laid down as the guideposts for our nation.  I don’t need any further explanations about what is wrong with America today.  We the People do not matter, power matters.  Both parties fight over who will control government with no regard for the people they are supposed to be SERVING.

Both parties have taken young Muslim men who can’t count to ten with both hands in front of them, set them up with fake bombs and targets, and then arrested them in the name of “Homeland Security”.  I think they call that entrapment!!  Officials hail themselves as doing a wonderful job protecting our homeland but are they?  Not in my book.  They break their arms patting themselves on the back for playing poor idiots as patsies.  The only two attacks I know about that weren’t planned by federal agents, the shoe bomber and the underwear bomber, were thwarted by private citizens alert to something amiss and the incompetence of the would-be attackers.

This isn’t only about Barack Obama; it is about politics and the corruption that permeates every pore of it.  This is about We the People once again gaining control of our future and restoring America as the “shining city on a hill” described by John Winthrop in the 1700’s.  It is about honor, integrity, and the rule of law.  It is about following the blueprint given to us by those who fought valiantly and defeated the strongest nation in the world at the time.

The Solyndra scandal is not the sole property of the Democrat Party.  Under Republican rule we had Enron, questionable money going to Halliburton, and on and on. Political corruption and vote buying has been a part of Washington as long as I have been around and I date back to the middle of the last century (1950).  Cronyism has long been the font of the ruling class, making sure those who give money to politicians of either party get their money back with interest.

Our forefathers, the men who wrote two of the greatest documents ever written, pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to establish the United States of America.  Generations of men and women have fought and died to preserve this nation.  We have strayed so far from what they established with the help of Divine Providence, that they would not recognize this nation today.

John Dummett is a common man, not a politician, not a wealthy wanta-be looking for a title to make him a legend in his own mind as most of the ruling class tends to be.  His desire is to live by the Constitution and bring this country back to its design.  I support him, as do many other “commoners”, the “country class” of America.  We have been ruled by the Ivy League know-it-alls for much too long.  Our nation has turned into a quagmire of evil, increasing poverty, class envy, and divisiveness by those who seek to rule rather than govern.  Both parties enrich their friends while promising We the People the moon.  You know the old saying, “divide and conquer”.

The goal of John Albert Dummett, Liberty Legal Foundation, and many common American citizens is to restore our nation to what it was designed to be, government OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People.  God and our founding fathers gave us a wonderful way of life, full of freedom, full of liberty, full of promise, and what have we done with it?

It is up to We the People to take our country back.  Unfortunately we will have to fight a war on two fronts.  We have to fight the liberals, George Soros, and the “Occupy Wall Street” morons who aren’t smart enough to put two sentences together, as well as the so-called conservative media and politicians who do not want to give up their gravy train to those of us “too stupid to know what is good for us”.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the ruling elites are all around us.  They are found on both sides of the political aisle and until we get enough common people into office to blunt their agenda we are in danger of dictatorship and slavery.  Remember, it was George W. Bush and a Republican Congress that gave us the Patriot Act, a misnamed law if I ever saw one.  In the name of protecting us they turned the noose of slavery one notch tighter.

John Dummett and the Liberty Legal Foundation are working for us, the common citizen of all colors, all economic categories, and all ethnic groups.  They are trying to restore We the people as the arbiters of freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  We need to support them.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

FEMA's Missing, But Not Why You May Think

Americans are asking, “Where’s FEMA?  Why aren’t they involved with the Gulf Oil Spill”.  The answer is as sad as it is strange.

Oddly enough, there’s been no formal request from any of the Gulf State Governors to declare the BP Oil Spill a “Federal Disaster Area”.  Instead, there have been numerous requests for aid that would normally follow the formal declaration of a disaster, but without the official declaration.  Governor Jindal (R-LA) asked the Small Business Association to, “..declare an Economic Injury Disaster Declaration that entitles local business owners to apply for federally subsidized loans” and asked the Department of Defense to “..approve funding for at least 90 days of military duty in Title 32 USC 502(f) status for up to 6,000 Soldiers and Airmen serving on active duty ..”.
Even though there’s been no disaster declaration, FEMA is offering aid by guiding victims through the claims process on the DisasterAssistance.Gov website.  But, make no mistake, claims go to BP not through the Federal government.
“The Administration will continue to hold BP responsible for all removal costs and damages associated with the BP oil spill, including efforts to stop the leak at its source, reduce the spread of oil and protect the shoreline and mitigate damages, to the maximum extent possible under the law.
Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 and other applicable laws, BP is accountable for processing and paying all removal costs and applicable damages incurred by individuals, business, and state and local governments as a result of the BP oil spill. Individuals may file a claim online or over the phone with BP, and may then be asked to visit a claims office location to provide documentation.
So now instead of where is FEMA, the question is, why isn’t this disaster a “Declared Federal Disaster”?  According to the Director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, Michael Greenberger Federal law “gives the president enough leeway .. If this threatens substantial harm to the health and safety and economy of the state, I think he could use the Stafford Act,” Greenberger said, in reference to the main disaster response law.
Well now we have one expert opinion stating that the Oil Spill could qualify as a declared disaster, but none of the Gulf State Governors have made the request as yet.
