Democrats attack 3 of the 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights


Everyone in favor of gutting the Bill of Rights raise your right hand.

The Slow March to Fascism
"The fact that a major U.S. political party -- which still considers itself mainstream -- is now willing to specifically target amendments designed to protect Americans from tyrannical government control is alarming, to say the least."  -  IBD


  • I love ripping the crap out of the Marxist Democrats. But in this July 4th week let us not forget that the Big Government loving "Conservative" GOP falls all over itself to attack the 4th Amendment, 5th Amendment, 10th Amendment as well as others.

From Investor's Business Daily

Freedom: Hillary Clinton and other leaders in her party always talk about how they want to grant new rights to Americans. They talk about the "right to affordable health care," the "right to a college education," the "right to a livable wage." But at the same time, many of these same Democrats have been agitating to restrict or outright repeal existing rights enshrined in the Constitution's Bill of Rights.
In just the past few months, in fact, members of the Democratic party  have targeted the 1st, 2nd and 5th Amendments for attack. Here are the details, in reverse order:
Denying Due Process
Last week, House Democrats staged a sit in to demand a vote on a gun control bill that would have denied anyone on the government's "no fly" list the right to buy a gun.
The problem is that someone can make it on the list "no fly" based on the flimsiest of evidence, mere suspicion, or for no apparent reason at all.
As a result, denying everyone on this list the right to buy a gun would risk denying them due process, a protection guaranteed by the 5th Amendment, which says among other things that no one can "be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law."
Even the gun-control-supporting ACLU game out against such bills for that reason, saying that the watch list is "error-prone and unreliable" and that it would "place individuals on blacklists without a meaningful process to correct government error and clear their names."
Liberal reporter Glenn Greenwald was even more emphatic. "In the lexicon of the leading liberal lights of the Democratic Party, someone deemed by the U.S. government to be suspicious -- placed in secret on a list, with no evidence presented and no court process -- is the equivalent of 'ISIS.' And to demand due process be accorded is to arm ISIS."
It's not as though the Democrats staging the sit in didn't understand this. In fact, they were protesting because the House leadership would only bring up a bill that included due process protections. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., complained that "due process is what's killing us right now" when it comes to denying gun purchases to people suspected of having ties to terrorism.
Battles of Lexington and Concord

Torching the 2nd Amendment
When not trying to limit 5th Amendment protections in their zeal for gun control, Democrats are increasingly calling not just for restrictions on purchases for would-be terrorists or bans on "assault rifles," but to scrap the 2nd Amendment entirely.
"The Second Amendment needs some changing, because Americans don't agree with it and we've had it," Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Pa., declared last week.
After Gabby Giffords was shot, liberal talk show host Bill Maher said that the Democratic party should "come out against the 2nd Amendment." Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., responded, "I sure wish they would."
Retired liberal justice John Paul Stevens wrote on op-ed saying the 2nd Amendment should itself be amended, so that the right to own guns only would apply to those who are actively serving in a militia.
Targeting Free Speech
Incredibly, the Democrats' disdain for the Bill of Rights includes even the 1st Amendment's protection of free speech. Party leaders are openly pushing to limit free speech rights when it conflicts with their own viewpoints.
In a speech at an Iowa community college, for example, Hillary Clinton said: "We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment."
Left unsaid is that the only way to do what she suggests would be to put restrictions on the 1st Amendment. A couple years ago, 54 Senate Democrats voted for a new constitutional amendment that would do just that.

(Editor  -  Now the Democrat Party platform calls for prosecution of Global Warming Skeptics.)
Meanwhile, a YouGov poll taken last May found that a majority of Democrats said they support government limits on what they consider to be "hate speech." Only 26% of Democrats said they opposed such limits.
In California, Democrats pushed a state bill that would have criminalized speech that questions the "consensus" on climate change.
And Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the Senate Judiciary Committee in March that she has discussed with her colleagues the possibility of pursuing civil actions against "climate change deniers."
Democrats have long expressed frustration, if not outright contempt, for the Constitution whenever it hinders their ability to enact some new government program. President Obama has repeatedly complained about the "messy" process the Constitution's co-equal branches created, and has several times acted as though the Constitution's limits on the president's authority simply don't apply to him.
But the fact that a major U.S. political party -- which still considers itself mainstream -- is now willing to specifically target amendments designed to protect Americans from tyrannical government control is alarming, to say the least.

Hispanics in California lose jobs to lower paid Hispanics in Mexico



Open Borders NAFTA Strikes Again
Now we can't even grow our own strawberries

  • Open border trade agreements passed by both parties are seeing jobs losses in every sector of the economy.
  • In California we are seeing a largely Hispanic workforce being fired and the jobs shifted to a much lower paid Hispanic workforce in Mexico.


(Ventura County Star)  -  Oxnard-based Mandalay Berry Farms is closing and will lay off 565 employees.
The company informed the state Employment Development Department of the pending closure in a June 1 letter as required by the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The letter was disclosed at Tuesday's Ventura County Board of Supervisors meeting by Supervisor John Zaragoza, whose district encompasses Oxnard. The company has been in business since 1995.
"This letter is to inform you that Mandalay Berry Farms ... will be permanently closing all of its operations effective the end of this current season," company President John Dullam wrote.
The operations are conducted at nine ranches in Oxnard, he stated.
The employees who will be losing their jobs effective July 31 are 497 harvesters/pickers, 19 harvest machine operators, 15 foremen, 15 stackers, five irrigators, five truck drivers, four forklift drivers, three punchers and two office/administration workers, according to Dullam.
None of the employees are represented by unions, his letter stated.
Dullam did not return a call Tuesday seeking comment.
The disclosure about Mandalay follows last week's news that three other agricultural businesses in Oxnard, vegetable grower Hiji Brothers Inc., and two associated operations — seedling nursery Seaview Growers and shippers Richview Inc. — will be closing in early August. Together, they employ about 260 people.
John Krist, CEO of the Farm Bureau of Ventura County, said he didn't know the particulars of why Mandalay is closing.
"But what I can say is that the last three years have been extremely tough on strawberry growers in Ventura County," he said. "It's been a number of factors, but the bottom line is that prices have been pretty bad and berry growers have been losing money."
"Part of it has been caused by an expansion of production in Baja, with varieties that overlap with our traditional market window here in Ventura County," he said. "So more fruit than usual on the market. Demand hasn't increased commensurately. Prices have fallen."
Land and labor costs are considerably higher in Ventura County than they are in Baja, Krist said.
"The production cost equations are so different here than in Baja," he said. "You make money growing in Baja at price levels that cause growers here to lose money."
Still, strawberries remained the county's biggest crop in 2014, with a reported value of almost $628 million, according to the county's most recent annual crop report from the office of Agricultural Commissioner Henry Gonzales. Strawberries were followed by lemons, raspberries, nursery stock and celery.

Report Muslim Rape & the Feds Will Come After You



Speak Only Government 
Approved Thoughts

  • Thought Crime  -  Obama's Big Brother US Attorney is threatening people if they dare spread what she considers "false information" on the Muslim rape of a 5 year old girl. 


(Front Page)  -  Another reminder how thoroughly committed the authorities are to pushing Muslim migration at any and all cost. Including at the cost of the Bill of Rights.
You may have heard about the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Idaho by Muslim migrant children and a teenager. The facts are still not entirely clear. And the authorities are not helping matters any by making the defense of "refugees" into their priority.
United States Attorney Wendy J. Olson put out a press release warning, “the spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities. I urge all citizens and residents to allow Mr. Loebs and Chief Kingsbury and their teams to do their jobs.”
Olson seems to have made Muslim refugees into her priority.
She issued a statement on ‘building resilient communities” on July 10, 2015, after meeting with law enforcement, the ACLU and other groups to discuss “anti-refugee” and “anti-Muslim” sentiments in Idaho and across the country that she deemed were “seeking to divide communities.”

Obama: Oath of Allegiance Optional for Muslims



GOP Joins Democrats for Open Borders

  • The GOP has controlled Congress almost exclusively since 1995.  The next time you get angry about immigration call your open borders whore Republican Congressman or Senator. They are totally responsible.

(BREITBART) — Former Congressman Tom Tancredo joined SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News Sunday to discuss Tancredo’s latest column for Breitbart News, “Obama Invites 18.7 Million Immigrants to Avoid Oath of Allegiance, Pledge to Defend America.”
Tancredo explained that, in July of 2015, the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS, sometimes shortened by Tancredo to USIS) “decided there was part of the Oath of Allegiance that has been taken by millions, and millions, and millions of immigrants into this country. It’s the last thing they have to do before actually getting their citizenship” that should be made optional. It was the part of the oath in which immigrants promised, “If called upon, I will indeed take up arms to defend the United States of America.”
“They have told immigrants now – the next 18 million that are in the pipeline – they do not have to take that part of the oath. It’s still in there, but they’ve said it’s optional; you don’t have to swear,” said Tancredo.
He noted this change was made without permission from Congress, for reasons USIS has yet to disclose. “Where the hell was Congress? Where is Congress?” Tancredo asked. “Where has Congress been, over and over and over again, in these kinds of issues? They just simply did it."

Famine comes to Communist Venezuela

Communist Created Starvation 
in Venezuela


Venezuelans are lining up to validate their signatures on a recall referendum for President Maduro. Among the reasons for Maduro's unpopularity is that more and more people are starting to wonder where their next meal is coming from. 

These days, those who have enough Venezuelan currency (now trading at 1,000 bolivars to the dollar on the black market) to buy food often have a hard time finding any.

This is from February this year:
AT 9.30am on a Thursday six Venezuelans wait for a guided tour of the former military museum that is now the mausoleum of Hugo Chávez, the country’s populist president of 1999-2013. Across the road around 120 people are queuing for food at government-controlled prices from a state-run supermarket. The food queue starts at 3am. “Sometimes there’s food and sometimes there isn’t,” one would-be shopper says.
This is from this weekend:
Venezuela: mass famine is imminent due to the Chávez-Maduro regime’s destruction of the productive economy. 
A humanitarian crisis, the likes of which have never been seen in the Western Hemisphere, is brewing in Venezuela and it will be inevitable in a few weeks.

CHRISTMAS VACATION Is A ‘Microagression’ Now



A Nation of Balless Pussies

  • Instead of telling the Fascist Thought Police to go fuck themselves, our universities roll over like dogs and obey the commands of the first lunatic that comes along.


(Daily Caller)  -  The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill issued a guide this week which instructs students that Christmas vacations and telling a woman “I love your shoes!” are “microaggressions.”
The taxpayer-funded guide — entitled “Career corner: Understanding microaggressions” — also identifies golf outings and the words “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” as microaggressions.
The UNC Chapel Hill guide, published on Thursday, covers a wide range of menacing microaggressions — which are everyday words that radical leftists have decided to be angry or frustrated about.
Christmas vacations are a microaggression, the public university pontificates, because “academic calendars and encouraged vacations” which “are organized around major religious observances” centralize “the Christian faith” and diminish “non-Christian spiritual rituals and observances.”

Democrats put gun owners in database



Marxist Democrats 
Continue Gun Attacks
Open Borders Democrats eagerly import Muslims from terrorist states while trying to disarm American citizens.


(Fox 59 TV)  -  While the issue of gun control has made little headway in Congress, Hawaii this week enacted a series of gun laws, one of which the governor says makes it the first state to put firearm owners into a database.
That database, which is called the “Rap Back” system, is operated by the FBI and would notify police when a gun owner is arrested for a crime anywhere in the United States.
“This will allow county police departments in Hawaii to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue to legally possess and own firearms,” the Hawaii governor’s office said in a statement.
“This is about our community’s safety and responsible gun ownership,” Gov. David Ige in a statement. “This system will better enable our law enforcement agencies to ensure the security of all Hawaii residents and visitors to our islands.”
Ige and the majority of the Hawaii state legislators are Democrats.
The NRA expressed its displeasure with the new state law tweeting: “Exercising constitutional rights in #Hawaii now gets you entered into a federal watchlist, er, database.”
During the public comment process regarding the bill, opponent Quentin Kealoha asked: “Why are law abiding citizens exercising their constitutional right being entered into a criminal database? Would you enter people exercising their right to free speech into a criminal database?”

George Will leaves GOP & I couldn't be happier



Elitist Snob Leaves GOP - Voters Cheer

  • Establishment butt-kissing snob George Will leaves GOP over Trump's appeal to average citizens.  
  • One wonders which of Trump's policies Will opposes:  Keeping out Muslim terrorists? , , , , Securing our borders? . . . . or Bringing middle class jobs back to America from Asia and Mexico?


(PJ Media)  -  Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election.

Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.

“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.

Will said he changed his voter registration this month from Republican to “unaffiliated” in the state of Maryland.

“This is not my party,” Will said during his speech at the event.

German right 'cries for joy' after UK votes to leave EU


Frauke Petry leader of the Right-Wing Alternative for Germany Party.

The Right Awakens in Germany

  • If you believe in secure borders the media always calls you "far right" (like in this article).  But if you believe in wide open borders then you are simply a Conservative.


(The Local)  -  The far-right AfD party called for a "new Europe" and the resignation of the EU's top two politicians in the wake of the Brexit vote.
Writing on Twitter, AfD (Alternative for Germany) leader Frauke Petry said that "the time is ripe for a new Europe."
The AfD has long called for the end to the Euro as a single currency for the European project, and has also been sharply critical of the European Union’s immigration policies which it sees as too generous.
AfD member of the European Parliament Beatrix von Storch greatly praised the Brexit vote.
AFD has won 102 seats in the state
legislatures of Germany.
“I cried with joy,” she told broadcaster Phoenix on Friday,
She also had strong words for the EU’s top two leaders, saying that European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Parliament President Martin Schulz “must accept responsibility and resign because their project has failed.”
A 'Dexit' for Germany?
A survey this week released before the vote showed that a majority of AfD supporters want Germany to make a ‘Dexit’ from the EU itself.
The poll by Stern magazine and research group Forsa showed that 63 percent of AfD supporters said they wanted Germany to make a break from the Union.
This was in sharp contrast with German respondents overall, with 79 percent of those polled in total saying they wanted Germany to stay in the EU.
Meanwhile after the vote, several German media outlets were expressing fears on Friday morning that Brexit will lead to contagion, and that populist far-right parties would win support for their plans for the disintegration of the EU on the back of it.
The Süddeutsche Zeitung asks whether the Czech Republic and Netherlands will be next to have referendums on their membership of the EU.
The Munich daily points out that Geert Wilders, leader of the far-right Party for Freedom, has already called for the Netherlands to have their own vote.
