‘Wrong-Way’ Obama

The following was written by J.D. Gordon:

For a former senior lecturer in constitutional law, President Obama sure has an interesting viewpoint on the U.S. Constitution. It’s a position that likely would mystify the Founding Fathers and most other presidents in our nation’s history.

Team Obama has gone after Americans through the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative political groups, the Justice Department’s seizure of two months of Associated Press phone records and now a possible criminal prosecution

Immigration Reform Must Offer Citizenship over Perpetual Guests: The Baker Institute

On April 4, 2013, The Baker Institute hosted a Conference: Immigration Reform: A system for the 21st Century. It was a forum where U.S. immigration experts, key public policy and political figures discussed the specifics of how to revamp our current broken immigration system. Discussed were specific issues that included “the changing demographics of the nation, the state

Don't Sacrifice Due Process Rights

The Northwest Ordinance—adopted in 1787 by the Congress of the Confederation and passed again by Congress in 1789 after the ratification of the U.S. Constitution to govern the Northwest Territories, which included modern day Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin—is undeniably an ordinance that inherits and extends the common law tradition. This means property rights take center stage and due process of law is established as a means of protecting property rights and the rights constituent to property such as life and liberty.   Read more »

Sen. Rand Paul Sanctions Use of Drones Against American Citizens on Neil Cavuto Show

Rand Paul Changes Course on DronesSenator Rand Paul (R-KY), who famously filibustered the nomination of CIA Director John Brennan over his position on the use of drones against American citizens, has now apparently done a 180 degree turn on the issue after the Boston Bombing. Earlier this week, on the Neil Cavuto Show on Fox Business Network, Paul apparently sanctioned the use of drones to kill American citizens in the commission of something as simple as a liquor store robbery.

The UN passed the Arms Trade Treaty last week

Greg Abbott - Your Liberty -- as a United States citizen -- was weakened and threatened when the Obama Administration helped the United Nations pass the Arms Trade Treaty. Immediately after this disappointing vote, I wrote a letter to President Obama urging him not to sign the treaty.

If the President signs the treaty allowing the UN to be involved in regulating firearms in the U.S., Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

Our liberties are at stake. Will you sign my letter to President Obama? Click here to add your name so together we can make a difference.   Read more »

Fight for the Right of Texans to Govern Texas

Sometimes we don’t notice the real danger even while it’s lurking right under our collective noses. For Hollingsworth v. Perry –the Supreme Court case involving Proposition 8--the media coverage and discussion focuses on same-sex marriage. But the gravest threat of this case could be to our federal system of government. Nowhere is marriage—or healthcare by the way—mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, which would seem to place marriage clearly within the powers reserved to the people and the states according to the 10th Amendment, and thus take the decision out of the Court’s hands altogether and leave decisions relating to marriage and healthcare with the people and the states.   Read more »
