Barack Obama, our next President

The Crisis Of The Day

When I sued the Clinton administration in 1994, I never imagined that Justice Scalia – the author of the ruling for the majority – would be so profound and powerful with his defense of the Tenth Amendment. Not only did Scalia say that the “States are not subject to federal direction” and that the US Congress only had “discreet and enumerated powers” and that federal impotency was “rendered express” by the Tenth Amendment, he also proclaimed that the States “retained an inviolable sovereignty.” You would think that these statements alone would be monumental enough and would provide sufficient ammunition for all state and local officials to stand against any governmental tyranny without any hesitation. Nevertheless, Scalia went even further in this landmark decision, one in which two small-town sheriffs headed the Feds “off at the pass” and sent them on their way. Scalia, in his infinite obligation to the Constitution, took this entire ruling to the tenth power when he said,

“The Constitution protects us from our own best intentions…so that we may resist the temptation to concentrate power in one location as an expedient solution to the crisis of the day.”

The “crisis of the day?” Was Scalia clairvoyant? He rendered this opinion in June of 1997. Now we are dealing with the Obama administration and others (Rham Emanuel) whose mantra is “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

Horrible examples of “crisis intervention” were seen during the aftermath of a bombing in Boston, a hurricane in New Orleans and a shooting in Connecticut. We see them whenever any other “emergency” arises. The police and Federal agents grant themselves power to suspend the Constitution, suspend American ideals and principles, and suspend their oaths of office to “make us all safer.” The police in Boston went door to door drawing down on numerous citizens inside their own homes! During the chaos after Katrina ravaged New Orleans the police went door to door confiscating guns from law abiding citizens. After the Sandy Hook shootings legislators in Washington, Colorado, New York and Connecticut all tripped over themselves to create schemes of gun control laws aimed again at law abiding citizens!

It’s during crises that the Constitution is really put to the test. It’s then that those who have sworn to protect and defend it are given a chance to show their true character and dedication to principles of American liberty. If all that is needed is a “crisis” or “emergency” to justify the destruction of our Constitution and the individual liberties of our citizens, then our enemies need only to create “crises” and “emergencies.” The result is a tremendous blow to freedom and the destruction of our Constitution, and thus the foundation of America. I pray that our nation’s sheriffs and police will stand and be counted regardless of the pressures and temptations to violate our oaths as an “expedient solution to the crisis of the day.” Crises will happen and emergencies will come and go, but precious liberty, once lost, will be next to impossible to regain.

you do have one thing right
Osama bin Laden was made in the U.S. with the help of President Reagan and his support of the Mujahideen
You GOP sheeple are a funny lot
You condemn President Clinton for enforcing an effective UN embargo on Iraq that stopped Saddam WMD program
but supported Bush's invasion of Iraq justified by eliminating Saddam NON-EXISTENT WMD'S
You want to go to war with Iran
but idolize President Reagan, a man who sold munitions and weapons to Iran
Bin Laden not only raised millions for Reagans effort, but helped encourage Arab volunteers to go fight for Reagan against the Soviets and the Afghan communists you fool. The Arab volunteers included people like Ayman al-Zawahiri, a young physician who had been jailed for having been involved in the assassination of Egyptian president Anwar El-Sadat.

The results of Clinton's policies were devastating for Muslim Bosniak people and Chechnya. Just in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, over 10,000 Bosnian Muslim (Bosniak) people were killed, including 1,500 children - by the Serb Army who kept the defenseless city under siege, that inflamed Muslim's worldwide...

See John, you're skipping over the point. Does it hurt that bad to just admit that, Obama is the product the American people bought into? By word from republicans own mouth, even though democrats didn't agree with most of George W.Bush's policies, on numerous occasions they backed him, because he was the peoples choice. America voted for Bush's ideology so who was our representatives to do otherwise? Same with Obama! Who is the republicans to oppose what the American majority voted for? It's so bad people are making up conspiracy theories, trying anything (the birther movement) to try & get him removed. This is a hate deeper than ideology differences. Republicans are actually hoping (& doing whatever they can ) to see that the president of the USA fails (to no success). Bordering the line of treason!

<quoted text>Then you believe that the conservative Heritage Foundation report "The Crisis in America's Emergency Rooms" was not based on facts? "Jammed with increasing numbers of uninsured Americans and enrollees in public programs, emergency rooms find their overcrowding further aggravated by outdated federal and state policies. Worse, while many emergency rooms are already operating at peak capacity on a day-to-day basis, the emergency medical system is incapable of absorbing the massive surge in demand for emergency medical assistance that would follow a natural disaster or terrorist attack." http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2007...
Still less expensive than providing unlimited medical care to those who cannot pay. Divert non-emergency cases to walk-in clinics.

<quoted text> So why is FoxNews protecting Darrell Issa for voting to cut millions of funds from embassy security accounts and the House Foreign Affairs Committee dismissing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's prior warnings that the sequester (if allowed to happen without Congress acting on passing a budget) would hinder State Department efforts to provide adequate embassy security. Republicans made the same mistake on allowing Benghazi to happen as Bush W did to dismiss warnings that Al-Qaeda was planning another attack on the World Trade Towers using hijacked planes as missiles to bring down the towers. Darrell Issa has as much blood on his hands as George Bush for the killing of innocent Americans! Republican partisanship ought to be put on trial here!
Trimming bloated budget requests is not the same as actual funding cuts.

Drop the State Department Muslim outreach and spend the money on security instead.
