The Supreme Court, another usurper of Congress constitutional functions
By Dr. Isaac Yetiv Tuesday, July 7, 2015
The Founding Fathers in their wisdom made the “Separation of Powers” one of the pillars of American democracy. The US Constitution clearly and unequivocally stipulates that “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.”
There have been historically a few cases when the Executive Power usurped the authority of the Legislative Power , but our current president arrogantly made it a habit and , without hesitation, violated the Constitution when it suited his political aims. Experts have tallied about a dozen of such acts. Here are a few of the most flagrant and inexplicable unilateral edicts : he unilaterally allowed one-year grace period and delayed implementation of employer mandate (Obamacare) ; he unilaterally waived the requirement of work for receiving welfare (1996 law) ; he unilaterally provided federal benefits to illegal aliens and granted deferred action on deportation that favors four to five million illegal aliens.

Unconstitutional Court Rulings
By Douglas V. Gibbs Thursday, July 2, 2015
If you look inside the pages of the United States Constitution, among the expressly granted authorities to the federal government, you will never find judicial review. In fact, the judicial branch was originally intended to be the weakest of the three branches of government. Yet, using the power of judicial review, of which the courts granted to themselves largely based on the written opinion of Chief Justice John Marshall regarding the Marbury v. Madison ruling in 1803, the Supreme Court recently set the U.S. Constitution upon the final path towards extinction with rulings regarding marriage, health care, and elections.
In the cases of health care and marriage, the high court sided with federal control over issues that have never constitutionally been authorized to the federal government. In the case of elections, the Supreme Court of the United States determined that States cannot verify citizenship of voters at the time of registering to vote, despite the fact that the manner in which the electoral process is held is largely left to the States, and one must be a citizen in order to vote in the first place.

By Liberty Counsel Thursday, July 2, 2015
Orlando, FL - Liberty Counsel is calling on pastors this Sunday to participate in a Declaration of Dependence. As we celebrate Independence Day on July 4, we need to remember that our liberties flow from God. The Declaration of Independence calls these God-given liberties “unalienable.”
Celebrate the 4th: Impeach Kagan and Ginsburg
By Cliff Kincaid Thursday, July 2, 2015
Justice Antonin Scalia said in his dissent in the same-sex marriage case that the ruling was a threat to our democratic form of government and constitutes a “judicial Putsch,” or secret power grab. He didn’t just say the majority was wrong or misguided; he essentially said they had conspired to overthrow our form of government. His position on the Court may have made it impossible to supply specifics. But one possible explanation of what he meant is that he saw a conflict-of-interest on the part of members of the majority, which required their recusal from the case.
Rather than investigate what Scalia is hinting at, our media have opened fire on Scalia for blowing the whistle on judicial corruption.

Supreme Court Abandons Rule of Law and Reason on Marriage
By Liberty Counsel Friday, June 26, 2015
Hear the reaction (audio clip) of Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.
WASHINGTON, DC - A bare 5-4 majority of the Supreme Court today purports to invent a “fundamental right” for same-sex individuals to “marry” and attempts to forcefully impose this new-found right on the entire nation. The Court’s decision fundamentally rewrites the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution to radically redefine the bedrock institution of marriage, which is older than the Court itself.

USA Sovereignty Ends?
By Sher Zieve Wednesday, June 24, 2015
In 2008, we warned you about Obama. Over and over again, we presented material documents showing that Obama had worked with and still worked with the enemies—many like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who did so with extreme violence—of the USA, its people…and, ultimately, every area where liberty lived. However, not willing to bother with any and/or all facts but, preferring the super-charged emotion of the dictator-to-be moment, too many Americans voted for him anyway. Besides, many US citizens had to prove they weren’t racist—so they voted for a Democrat-advertised half-black man who had only recently begun a career in politics. But, he had a winning way about him, a great smile and could give a rousing speech. Hmmm. Seems there was at least one other leader in the 1930s who fit that description. But…I digress.

Who Does the Patriot Fight For?
By Gary Hunt Tuesday, June 16, 2015
Almost every patriot I have met, when asked, “What are you willing to fight for?”, will answer, my family - my children and grandchildren. The Founders chose the word “Posterity” to explain their objective in both fighting and establishing a new government comprised of member States. What they did, they did for us, their posterity.
So, what happened when that government established upon those principles, as well as others, becomes the enemy of that very protection that they were, and we are, willing to fight for?
Prisons Without Walls: We’re All Inmates in the American Police State
By John W. Whitehead Monday, June 15, 2015
“It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison and yet not free—to be under no physical constraint and yet be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation wants him to think, feel and act. . . . To him the walls of his prison are invisible and he believes himself to be free.”—Aldous Huxley, A Brave New World Revisited
“Free worlders” is prison slang for those who are not incarcerated behind prison walls. Supposedly, those fortunate souls live in the “free world.” However, appearances can be deceiving.
