Rural Police Shun Silly State Law Over Second Amendment Concerns

This is what the Constitution truly is:  A map of where all the lines must be drawn.

second amendment

The Second Amendment is, at its most basic, our insurance policy for the American Dream.

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness cannot be achieved or maintained while any one man has power over another.  The right to bear arms guarantees that we are all equal to one another, but, more importantly, that we as a people are on par with any government that so chooses to pick a fight with us – foreign or domestic.  Furthermore, the Founding Fathers gave us the ultimate say in the matter by simply stating that the Second Amendment “shall not be infringed”.

These 4 words are our ticket to everlasting liberty.  At any such time as we feel “infringed” upon in terms of our right to bear arms, we have been told, in no uncertain terms by the Founders themselves that something’s gone awry at the top.

Remember, our founding documents aren’t merely a roadmap forward, but they are based intrinsically on the experiences of a population under siege by their own government.  The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were meant for We The People, not for those already in power.  The Constitution is very specifically written to instruct Americans to rise when necessary, and not allow their rights to be trampled upon.

And this revolt isn’t always violent.   Sometimes, this revolt against creeping tyranny comes in stoic, common sense responses to extraordinarily asinine situations.

Sheriffs in rural Washington state are reportedly refusing to enforce the gun controls contained in I-1639, an initiative passed by voters in November 2018.

The initiative was funded by millionaires and billionaires.

For example, the NRA-ILA reported that “billionaire Microsoft co-founder and Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers owner Paul Allen … [donated] $1 million.” Venture capitalist Nick Hanauer also gave $1 million.

These officers, despite the risk that would cause they themselves at work, took a stand against an overreach by the government in order to do what’s best for their flock.

This is what the Constitution truly is:  A map of where all the lines must be drawn.  Thank goodness these Sheriffs trusted the map.

Watchdog Group Says Trump Broke The Law By Withholding Aid From Ukraine

Published

on

The U.S. government’s congressional watchdog has determined that President Trump and his administration are guilty of breaking the law by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine during the summer of 2019. The Government Accountability Office published a nine-page report on Thursday that concluded the Officer of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act when it refused to release $214 million set aside as aide to Ukraine. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law,” the independent legislative branch agency concluded. “The Office of Management and Budget withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act. The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that the Office of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act.” The determination comes the same day that the impeachment trial against President Trump related to allegations of abuse of power in Ukraine is set to kick off in the Senate. “The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation,” the Government Accountability Office said. “Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances as expressly provided in the Impoundment Control Act.” How much this information will impact the impeachment trial remains to be seen, but it’s definitely not going to make matters any easier for President Trump going forward.

Republican Senator Attacks CNN Reporter; Calls Him A ‘Liberal Hack’

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally proved in a recent spat with a CNN reporter that she is not the kind of individual you want to mess with. McSally was asked about recent developments that have been unfolding would make her change her mind about impeaching President Trump. To say the answer was a resounding no would be an understatement. McSally ripped into the reporter calling him a “liberal hack.” Someone’s been taking lessons on counterpunching from President Trump. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: On Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani’s Ukrainian associate Lev Parnas claimed that “Trump knew” about all of the shady efforts taking place in Ukraine, including the alleged stalking of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Parnas said, “President Trump knew exactly what was going on. He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president.” On Thursday morning, CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to ask the Arizona Republican about the developments and how it could change her impeachment vote. He asked, “Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial.” She responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” Raju followed up, “You’re not going to comment.” McSally brushed him off and echoed her earlier retort of calling him a “liberal hack.” https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1217822020848771074 McSally went on to double down on her claim about Manu being a liberal hack in a video posted to Twitter: https://twitter.com/SenMcSallyAZ/status/1217829609808547841 Well, she’s not wrong. Perhaps Manu is still in the first step of denial about the role he is playing in the modern media? Regardless, he certainly got served by McSally, extra crispy on both sides.
