Activist Judges Influence

The Supreme Court Follows the Constitution
Do you believe that the Supreme Court always makes the "right" decisions and tries to follow the original intent of our Founders? WRONG! Over time, the Court has done just the opposite. Unfortunately for all of us, the modern Court is slowly discarding the traditional limitations provided by the Constitution. This is often referred to as "Judicial Activism."

When It Started
For several generations after the country was founded the Supreme Court relied solely on the clear and unambiguous writing in the Constitution regarding our rights and the limitations of government. However, this changed near the end of the 1800s. The early courts strived to protect, encourage, and advance the influence of religion throughout society. (Refer to the book "Original Intent" by David Barton).

The first real evidence of Judicial Activism occurred in 1892. It was the case of the the Church of the Holy Trinity vs the United States. The Court interpreted the law to override States powers. For the first time in over 150 years the Supreme Court assumed power over the States. Prior to this decision, the States had the highest authority in any disputes over issues concerning the Bill of Rights. It allowed the judges to interpret the intent of the legislature rather than follow the text of the statute.

Big Deal You Say?
OK, so you may think that this is not that important. I'll give you four simple examples of where this judicial thinking has lead us today. Here are some Supreme Court Rulings that don't make any sense because of judicial activism:

1. In 1984 it was constitutional to display a creche and depict the origins of Christmas, however in 1989 it became unconstitutional!

2. In 1979 it was constitutional to begin a public meeting with prayers, but in 1992 it became unconstitutional to allow students to hear prayers in a public meeting.

3. It is constitutional to display the Ten Commandments on public property, but in 1980 it was unconstitutional to allow students to see them, or in 1993 to display them in a courthouse.

4. It is constitutional for Congressional Chaplains to pray, but it is unconstitutional for students to read those prayers!

Where is Your Freedom Going?
More and more we see how "activist" judges are changing the world in which we live. Their "interpretations" are NOT the original intent of our Founders. This is the main reason why it is so important to nominate and confirm judges who will follow the Constitution and not Bastardize it. Instead of nominating judges like Elena Kagan who did political favors for Barack Obama, we need to nominate non-partial judges instead.

Action To Take
You should be concerned when there are Supreme Court openings. Follow the nomination process and make YOUR feelings known to your US Senators BEFORE they render their votes. Supreme Justices serve for life and cannot be recalled!!

Obama "Grants" Exemptions!

Inconsistent Application
You know ObamaCare is bad and here is a sound example of why.

Obama just gave SPECIAL consideration to 30 companies who complained loudly about raising the annual healthcare benefit under ObamaCare. According to the new law, ALL companies are required to raise the minimum annual benefit included in low cost healtcare plans to cover part-time or low-wage employees.

Because 30 companies voiced their complaints, Obama unilaterally "decided" to change the law and exempt them from it by his order and nothing else. REALLY? He cannot legally do this!

Once Passed it's LAW
There is nothing in ObamaCare that gives the President the "right" or power to override the new law. SO how can Obama "exempt" 30 companies just because he feels sorry for them? He Cannot. Not Legally!

The only way these 30 companies could be exempted would be for Congress to pass legislation that would do just that. The President HAS NO AUTHORITY to do so.

Criteria Used
Even if he had the power to render these exemptions, by what criteria is he using to pass judgement on these 30 companies? We don't know. Maybe they donated to his political campaign on 2008. Maybe, he owns stock in them. We doubt if it's because he sympathizes with them.

Blatant Misuse of Assumed Presidential Power
In this example, the president has erroneously misused his Presidential powers. In fact, he "Presumed" that he has these powers. Why isn't anyone challenging him on this? Is this becoming a Fascist government with TOTALITARIAN POWERS?

Action To Take
Let the White House know that this is ILLEGAL. Why should 30 companies get special dispensation for the new law? ALL companies should receive this exemption! AND, the President has no authority to re-write the law!

Food Stamp Record!

More People on Food Stamps!
Do you know someone who is on food stamps? Is it you? Your neighbor? A friend? They are not alone. Chances are good that you answered "Yes" to one of those questions. This is because there is a record number of Americans who are taking government assistance in the form of food stamps.

There are 41.8 Million Americans taking this government assistance. That's a new record! Granted, that Obama inherited a bad economy. However, he has to take credit for HIS failed "fixes" that include: the Stimulus, higher unemployment, higher taxes, crazy deficit spending,. and government takeovers.

Remember in November
Unemployment numbers for September are not officially announced. However, there have been several leaks indicating that unemployment has gone up to 9.7%. You can thank the Democrats One Party system for this number.

Please look at YOUR candidates voting record before you enter the voting booth. If they voted for the failed policies listed above, consider voting them out of office. Do you REALLY want more of the same? If their policies continue, the writing is on the wall. Our economy is NOT getting better and the value of the dollar is SHRINKING daily. America's standard of living will become lower than what it is today. It's already happening across the country. (Even New Yorkers have lower incomes).

We must cut-back and reduce government spending and government borrowing. We must reduce taxes - not increase them. We must STOP government bailouts and wasteful pork projects that do not create JOBS. This will not be pleasant, but it's better than the alternatives.

More Soros Recipients

Soros Organizations "B to F"

Guest Article - Tea Party Boss

Who Rules the Tea Party?
By Armstrong Williams of Townhall Magazine

"Is it Sarah Palin and her lunch pail brand of God, guns and the Constitution? Is it Dick Armey, the former House majority leader who danced to his own tune and was the mastermind behind the GOP’s Contract with America? Or is the tea party led by a few private mega-funders — a George Soros clan of the conservative movement?

One thing is certain, liberals have no idea who their opponent is, and they and the mainstream media are desperate to find out.

Several months ago, when the tea party crusade hit its stride with a Kentucky primary win by Rand Paul to succeed retiring Sen. Jim Bunning, a Republican, the Left went out of its way to link Mr. Paul as the puppet behind a larger Republican machine. Democrat operatives quickly labeled Mr. Paul and his style of politics as wholly indicative of what the GOP had become.

As predicted, Republicans had reverted to their old-school style of hate politics, the storyline went, making this November a clear choice between “policies of the past” versus the future.

The political cheap shot was an easy one for the likes of Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine. The narrative they could build around Mr. Paul and other tea party activists fit nicely into the party’s attacks, and gave them something to shoot at after being pummeled for months by a sluggish recovery and missteps of their own.

To Democrats and the media, the GOP had let the wing-nuts take over. And so long as they were winning, Republican leaders were all too eager to sit back and watch.

But then Christine O’Donnell happened. From out of nowhere, this recycled candidate snatched victory from the jaws of the Establishment — Republican Rep. Mike Castle of Delaware. What a conundrum that created.

Now all of a sudden, Republicans had taken a big step away from winning control of the Senate. Clearly this wasn’t in the party’s plan, but up until now, everyone was saying the GOP was in control of the tea party.

Without missing a beat or even noting their own double-mindedness, pundits and columnists took to warning the country that Republicans had no control of the tea party, and such irresponsible behavior threatened to wreak havoc on our way of life (whatever that meant). As Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson wrote on Sept. 14, “The Republicans thought they had the rampaging Tea Party under control. Apparently the Tea Party begs to differ.”

So which is it? Does the Republican Party control the tea party? Is the tea party stationed off First Street in the Republican National Committee headquarters?

The truth is, the tea party is led by no one. It stands singularly united against the forces of “government knows best.” Unfortunately for the Democrats, the poster child of such doctrine is President Obama himself. No manner of ducking or dodging will dissuade tea party crusaders. So what opponents do instead is demonize this group because of its views; this from a man who pledged to be “President for all Americans.”

For now, the simple fact the tea party is against something is enough to galvanize its followers and keep them focused on the prize — the end of the ruling party. It forces each candidate to listen to the local concerns of their constituencies, not some “head” that arbitrarily decides an official platform. The platform is simple — Stop wasting our tax dollars!

So-called experts claim the tea party only affects Republicans, but that’s an incomplete assertion. Throughout the country we are seeing Democratic candidates run away from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their party to tout their independence and fiscal responsibility. When was the last time you saw so many politicians run away from their greatest “achievements?”

If the tea party and its message are so trite, why are officials on both sides privately telling me this is the best thing to happen to the parties in a long time? Simple — because it’s forcing candidates to finally start listening.

One thing that hasn’t been discussed in Washington circles is what the tea party needs. Like it or not, once these candidates become sworn-in members of the House or Senate, they will need to form a coalition government of sorts. Left to itself, there will be little legislatively it can do. Yet plugged into the policy apparatus of the Republican Party, it can begin to shape and turn initiatives, something every tea party disciple longs to see.

Can this movement last? Will it be around and in similar form come 2012? I believe so. There’s too much frustration and not enough relief in sight. But I don’t see a tea party movement in 15 years — not how it’s formed today. Groups like these need a common enemy, a political target to direct their discontent.

Finally, this movement possesses one characteristic that Democrats are sorely lacking this election cycle — enthusiasm. That’s why candidates like Miss O’Donnell still have a better-than-average chance of winning. Do you think Delaware voters care what “The Architect” Karl Rove thinks? Hardly. Their own enthusiasm is almost enough to carry the day. Just look to 1994 to view that piece of history.

Who leads the tea party? It doesn’t matter. The political tour de force is felt by everyone, yet controlled by no one. Let the Establishment beware."

Soros Funded Organizations

Who Gets His Help
George Soros is so rich that he can give away millions of dollars every year to support his left-wing (extreme political ideology). He has influence over the Democratic party in ways it's hard to conceive. His hands are literally into almost every facet of American lives. It's NOT because he's a charitable man. He has a political agenda.

Soros HATES Capitalism even though he became wealth using this system. Ironic but true. Here is a partial list of the Soros funded organizations.

Note: Some are reputable and most are extreme left-wing communist/Marxist organizations.
  • Air America Radio-Now defunct, this was a self-identified "liberal" radio network.

  • Alliance for Justice-Known for its activism by way of the appointment of federal judges, this group consistently depicts Republican judicial nominees as "extremists."

  • America Coming Together-Soros played a major role in creating this group, whose purpose was to coordinate and organize pro-Democrat voter-mobilization programs.

  • America Votes-Soros also played a major role in creating this group, whose get-out the-vote campaigns targeted likely Democratic voters.

  • American Bar Association Commission on Immigration Policy-This organization "opposes laws that require employers and persons providing education, health care, or other social services to verify citizenship or immigration status."

  • American Civil Liberties Union-Opposes virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by the U.S. government. It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former convicted New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn (Bill Ayers wife) to its Advisory Board.

  • American Constitution Society for Law and Policy-This think tank seeks to move American jurisprudence to the left by recruiting, indoctrinating, and mobilizing young law students, helping them acquire positions of power. It also provides leftist Democrats with a bully pulpit from which to denounce their political adversaries.

  • American Family Voices-Creates and coordinates media campaigns charging Republicans with wrongdoing.

  • American Federation of Teachers-Sandra Feldman, who slowly “re-branded” the union, allying it with some of the most powerful left-wing elements of the New Labor Movement. When Feldman died in 2004, Edward McElroy took her place, followed by Randi Weingarten in
    2008. All of them kept the union on the leftward course it had adopted in its post-Shanker period.

  • American Friends Service Committee-Views the United States as the principal cause of human suffering around the world. As such, it favors America's unilateral disarmament, the dissolution of American borders, amnesty for illegal aliens, the abolition of the death penalty, and the repeal of the Patriot Act.

  • American Immigration Council-Non-profit organization is a prominent member of the open-borders lobby. It advocates expanded rights and amnesty for illegal aliens residing in the U.S.

  • American Immigration Law Foundation-Supports amnesty for illegal aliens, on whose behalf it litigates against the U.S. government.

  • American Immigration Law Foundation-Supports amnesty for illegal aliens, on whose behalf it litigates against the U.S. government.

  • American Immigration Law Foundation-Supports amnesty for illegal aliens, on whose behalf it litigates against the U.S. government.

  • The American Prospect, Inc.-Trains and mentors young left wing journalists, and organizes strategy meetings for leftist leaders.

  • Amnesty International-Directs a grossly disproportionate share of its criticism for human rights violations at the United States and Israel.

  • Arab American Institute Foundation-Arab American Institute denounces the purportedly widespread civil liberties violations directed against Arab Americans in the post-9/11 period, and characterizes Israel as a brutal oppressor of the Palestinian people.

  • Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now-Conducts voter mobilization drives on behalf of leftist Democrats. These initiatives have been notoriously marred by fraud and corruption.
There are MANY more organizations that he funds. These are just the ones under "A" in the alphabet!

If You're Not Worried, You'd Better Be
One of the richest men in the world is throwing his money towards projects and organizations that are trying to change the fabric of America. Become aware of him and his organizations. Do NOT support or contribute to them. Oppose them and their agendas.

New Monthly Approval Index

The Rasmussen Reports is an independent electronic publishing firm that specializes in public opinion polling. Obama's approval rating over the long term shows a definite trend. It is NOT favorable for President Obama.
Here are the monthly approval index ratings:

Presidential Monthly Approval Index Ratings
This tracks how the President is doing by those surveyed over all the months he has been in office. Recall that the approval index is reached by subtracting the Disapproval ratings from the Approval ratings.

This chart is from

Side Note
A current survey shows that likely voters across America strongly feel that the government should get out of the automobile business.

  • 66% of voters want to sell the government interests in GM.
  • 14% of voters still want the government to retain ownership of GM.
  • 20% are undecided.
Side Note 2
27% of Americans say that they or someone they know has avoided buying a GM car because of the bailout and the government take over.

AND, 55% are more likely to buy a Ford product because that company did NOT seek a bailout.

AND 18% say they or someone they know bought a Ford product BECAUSE the company refused bailout funding!
