While Obama Fiddles the World Burns

 

While the American propaganda news media ignores Europe they promote Islam.

Norway is ready to abandon the Geneva Convention if Sweden collapses. And I say not if but WHEN Sweden Collapses. The border will be closed BY FORCE, and Swedish refugees will be rejected without the possibility to seek asylum. “We are prepared for the worst,” says Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

Just perhaps, the Viking Blood is beginning to boil. We see real Germans beginning to fight back. There are rumbles from Britain but they may be too far gone. Even the lame-assed French are finding their spines.

 

Norwegian government: We will abandon international law if Sweden collapses

Norway is ready to abandon the Geneva Convention if Sweden collapses. The border will be closed by force, and Swedish refugees will be rejected without the possibility to seek asylum. “We are prepared for the worst,” says Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

Attn: Republicans

 

I know it is easy and fun to make fun of the Organizer in Chief. The petulant child president. But perhaps you have forgotten that President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama have identical views on the top two issues in this year’s election: immigration and Islam.

On immigration, Bush pushed hard for several major amnesties, the last one being Kennedy-McCain in 2007. All failed because of public protest and conservative Republican opposition in Congress. Illegal immigration under Bush was 4.4 million, while it has been only 2.5 million to date under Obama. Obama supported the 2013 Schumer-Rubio amnesty and legal immigration surge bill, but it failed because of public outrage and lack of support by House Republicans.

Just to jog the memory cells here are a few quotes about Islam, tell me which President made each quote.

“This great religion in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted to justify violence.”

“The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,” said the president, escorted by Islamic clerics into the ornate mosque full of Turkish tile, Persian rugs and Egyptian paintings. “Islam is peace.”

“Islam brings hope and comfort to millions of people in my country, and to more than a billion people worldwide. Ramadan is also an occasion to remember that Islam gave birth to a rich civilization of learning that has benefited mankind.”

“There are thousands of Muslims who proudly call themselves Americans, and they know what I know — that the Muslim faith is based upon peace and love and compassion.”

“The world sees a nation at prayer — Christian, Jew and Muslim, alike — praying for strength to an almighty and merciful God.”

“The Islam that we know is a faith devoted to one God, as revealed through the Holy Quran. It teaches the value and the importance of charity, mercy, and peace.

Let’s see how you did. Only the first quote belonged to Obama all the rest were G.W. Bush

Looks to me like neither party cares much about America. Much like the song said, “New boss same as the old boss.”

Troubled Families

 

I know many families have problems. And many of us seek council from our religious leaders. One Step to Heal Marriage Is to Hit Your Wife. Husbands should know that that hitting is a mark of “love and friendship.” It helps in healing a broken marriage.

There is a four-step program for husbands, culminating in striking their wives, but not so severely that those outside the home discover that the couple is having trouble. The husband starts with a warning. After the warning comes separation. If the separation fails, then comes hitting the wife. Remember when hitting your wife not to hit the face and do not make her ugly. Not to hit so that it will bring the police, break her hand and cause bleeding, or hitting that makes the face ugly. Only after beating your wife the marriage is not healed divorce may happen.

Remember men hitting your wife shows your love for them!

I Tried Not to Comment But…

 

Pope Francis is a hypocrite of the worst kind. Cloaked in the mantle of Christ he accuses Americana of being anti-Christian for opposing open immigration. Using the shroud of God, he condemns America. Yet look at Pope Francis’ own actions. As pope he is also the head of state of the State of the Vatican.

The state of the Vatican, has the most restrictive immigration and citizenship policies of any nation in the world. Let me repeat that The policies of Pope Francis are to impose most restrictive immigration and citizenship policies of any nation in the world. While advocating to other under the guise of speaking for God, he does exactly the opposite.

Here is an idea to see if he follows the word of God he preaches. Ship the next 20,000 refugees to live in Vatican City. We all know the outcome. He would order his Swiss Guards to arrest and expel every one of them.

Constitution

Constitution 01

We hear a lot of talk the Constitution needs to be a “living” document. It needs to be interpreted for a modern world. Perhaps, even you believe this is the case. However, before you want the courts to interpret the constitution by today’s standards. Rather than using a constructionist view of the constitution where it means only what it says. Stop and think what you are really advocating.

What you are promoting is that current politicians can define the right guaranteed by the Constitution. Because if the constitution “lives” then it changes to fit current morals. Every right granted in the constitution is subject to interpretation. You have no rights except those granted by current administrations.

Do you really want the current politicians of the day determining your rights?

Thoughts on Supreme Court Nominations

Supreme Court 01

The Constitution says the Senate’s role is “Advice and Consent” to the nominations made by a President. Let’s look for a minute at this. Recent political thinking has been for the Senate to defer to the President’s wishes. This argument for deference rests on the idea that the president, elected by the people, is entitled to exercise his judgment on who should be officers of the executive branch and judges in the judicial branch. But, should they be doing that even if the President is of their own party?

However, this thinking fails to recognize the important difference between executive-branch and judicial-branch nominations. It also completely ignores the ides of separation-of-powers doctrine embedded in the Constitution.

I agree a certain deference is due to nominees who would serve in the executive-branch. However, the Judicial-branch is different. Unlike executive-branch officials, federal judges do not work for the president and neither do they work for Congress. They are an entirely different branch of government.

Our doctrine of separation of powers demands that both the legislative and executive branches have an equal voice in who become federal judges with lifetime appointments. The Senate by giving undue deference, cedes the executive branch too much power over what is supposed to be an independent and separate part of our federal government.

By allowing the executive-branch virtual dictatorial control over judge’s appointments places them under the control of the executive-branch. They by virtue of the Constitution the judicial-branch must be a wholly independent branch of government.

The Senate has an absolute duty to delve deeply into the judicial philosophy of such nominees. Regardless of party affiliation. The Senate must ensure that any nominee’s past history and prior statements demonstrate an uncompromising fidelity to the Constitution as written. These days, all nominees profess that fidelity because their handlers tell them they must do so to get confirmed. It is up to the Senate to investigate the credibility of such claims based on the nominee’s overall record, a record that provides actual evidence of his or her view of the Constitution and the rule of law.
