Justin Amash, the young and promising politician who has been appealing to the Constitution to support some of his arguments, was shocked to discover that both the Democratic and Republican parties do not really defend the Constitution. He lamented:

“When I entered Congress, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and I have followed through on that promise. The political elites of both parties don’t like what I’m doing.

“They have a vision of government that is very different from the vision laid out in the Constitution. As the elites see it, the American people are their subjects, and a benevolent privileged few—standing above the law—must watch over the rest of society.

“History and logic show us that no matter how ‘good’ the leaders are, unrestrained government invites corruption and cronyism. On the whole, government power always benefits the wealthy and well-connected at the expense of others.”[1]

That is the reason the Supreme court is going to get another look at the O'bama care tax-it originated in the Senate. Remember when Roberts said "you will figure it out?"

yeah, working real well...except that the sanctions have accomplished nothing toward their purpose...which was to end the development of nuclear weapons, not to starve the people...

Syria has provided UN inspectors with an inventory of what they possess within the time allowed. Next up is to prepare for the safe removal and destruction of the weapons along with the ingredients and equipment necessary to produce more.

Will the Assad regime cheat??? Probably, but it won't escape US satellite technology or those on the ground loyal to the US, France and others. Further use of CW's will result in "serious retribution" on an unprecedented scale__and that was the goal all along. Even Putin agrees that the Assad regime is in it's final phase.

Just like all the other taxes. They will be delayed or eliminated. So you will in the end have massive new spending with no new revenue coming in.
That would be defunding the bill.

As it stands it is not defunded.

Congress can change any law & how it is funded.

Don't blame the bill, blame those defunding it.

According to you, we should do nothing about anything because sometime it might be defunded.

Maybe that's why you favor Republicans in Congress, they just ever bother funding what they spend.

There were no crimes committed, no trials, and no convictions: the Japanese Americans were political incarcerees.

But what were the terms used by the government officials who were involved in the process and who had to justify these actions? Raymond Okamura provides us with a detailed list of terms. Let's consider three such euphemisms: "evacuation," "relocation," and "non-aliens." Earthquake and flood victims are evacuated and relocated. The words refer to moving people in order to rescue and protect them from danger. The official government policy makers consistently used "evacuation" to refer to the forced removal of the Japanese Americans and the sites were called "relocation centers." These are euphemisms (Webster: "the substitution of an inoffensive term for one considered offensively explicit") as the terms do not imply forced removal nor incarceration in enclosures patrolled by armed guards. The masking was intentional.[16]
Hirabayashi went on to describe the harm done by the use of such euphemisms and also addressed the issue of whether or not only the Nazi camps can be called "concentration camps."

Blacks finally have aseat at the world CRIMINAL CABAL hahahahahahalolololololo Yours truly has been saying for months that Washington, where both the Republican and Democratic parties politically reside, is warped around the Zionist matrix, which always promises to fight terrorism and protect the American people but inexorably ends up delivering something else, i.e., giving allegiance to the Israeli regime in America[2] and deliberately censoring out dissident voices in academic institutions in countries such as Canada,[3] supporting and training radical terrorist cells such as the Syrian rebels under the Obama administration[4](even though they knew that the rebels are terrorists[5]) and the Mujahideen under Bush,[6] killing innocent and dissident voices such as Rachel Corrie,[7] killing Iranian scientists in the name of fighting terrorism,[8] creating havoc in Iraq where hundreds of people die virtually every single day,[9] attempting to murder at least one former U.S. Senator (James Abourezk),[10] blackmailing countries such as Russia for resisting the neo-bolshevik and diabolical plan and allowing the rebels to attack Moscow’s embassy in Damascus,[11] creating aesthetic terrorism among precious Americans by propounding that Iran is building a nuclear bomb,[12] unleashing sexual debauchery and pornography in what they view as a “Christian culture” in America to corrupt the young and defenseless[13] so that they do not have time to think about serious issues, grabbing both the American and precious Muslim people by the rope and swinging them back and forth into economic suffering, and finally sending precious Americans a six trillion-dollar bill.[14]

If you were an American soldier and are confronted with all these facts. If you knew that supporting terrorist groups indirectly ends up blowing churches sky high in places like Pakistan,[15] what would you do?

Well, our precious soldiers are committing suicide. Every day, at least 22 soldiers end up taking their own lives.[16] But a large portion of Americans are much more concerned about getting the new iPhones[17] than worrying about our precious soldiers dying for the Zionist mafia. In other words, Max Boot’s plan seems to be working.

Yes it will be defunded but that won't stop them from spending the money anyway. That's the point you keep missing. No politician is going to give the impression they are cutting medicare. The lobbyist will get members on both sides to stop the taxes. You really don't understand this?
Actually I'd get rid of most of them also. We need to get back to the constitution and almost all on both sides need to go. It will happen sooner or later. It may take the collapse of the dollar but it will happen.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE Daniel McCarthy of the American Conservative is astonished that the holy trinity of anti-war proponents—Obama, Kerry, and Hagel—radically turned their backs on what they had previously committed themselves to.[20]

The reason is simple: the holy trinity had already been politically bar-mitzvahed and had become political prisoners in the Zionist matrix. The political consequences are so enormous that

“Online patrolling by the government is also happening in the U.S., particularly from the CIA and its infamous In-Q-Tel program. At a 2012 summit, former CIA director David Petraeus essentially admitted that the CIA has a covert online presence that it uses not only for data mining purposes but also to infiltrate online conversations for the purpose of protecting ‘national security’ interests.

“Such interests, it turns out, include disrupting conversations that discuss topics like 9/11 truth, for instance, or U.S. involvement in giving weapons to Syrian rebels.

“According to Occupy Corporatism, the [NSA]… has devised a training program that literally scouts out hackers from American colleges and universities and recruits them to work for the government.

“Among the many duties sought from those enrolled in the National Centers of Academic Excellence in the Cyber Operations Program are ‘collection, exploitation, and response’ activities to take place in the online environment.

“These ‘cyber operators’ are trained to become an elite team of ‘computer geniuses’ that are experts in computer hacking, digital communications, cyber intelligence — for the purpose of spying on Americans, as well as conducting interactive digital psy-ops with users of the internet,’ explains Occupy Corporatism about the program.”[21]

Visit Manzanar, as Galt has, and see for yourself instead of reading propaganda.

A death rate of 4 people per 1000 per year is probably less than the normal death rate anywhere. Certainly less than the death rate for Chicago gangstas.

The internment was wrong, but the treatment was humane.

PUTIN: AN ALLY IN THE POLITICAL WAR

Putin continues to challenge the Zionist matrix by saying that Israel’s nuclear warheads make foreign policy very difficult,[22] particularly when Israel applies different standards. Victor Gilinsky, former member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and Henry D. Sokolski, executive director of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center, have recently raised the same issue.[23]

Israel continues to force countries in the Middle East to dismantle their nuclear programs, but Israel is not even willing to let the international community take a look at their warheads—and they have hundreds of them![24]

Countries in the Western world have recently again voted against the proposal that Israel should join other nations such as Iran in signing the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty.[25] Israeli Defense Minister Danny Dannon has already gone on record saying that “Israel should annul the Oslo records.”[26]

This is a slick way to absolve any responsibility. If they are out, then no country can hold them accountable. No country can ask them to play by the same rule.

What’s even more interesting is that Jewish organizations abide by the same double standards in America.

For example, Jewish lawyer Bob Wieckowski is making the ridiculous argument that the state of California should allow non-U.S. citizens to serve on California juries![27]

Bob Wieckowski
At the same time, in Upper Nazareth, which has about 50,000 people of various origins, including a small minority of Arabs and Christians, Mayor Shimon Gafsou does not even want a mosque or a church to be built there. Gafsou defends his position by saying,

“95 percent of the Jewish mayors think the same thing. They’re just afraid to say so out loud.”[28]

He continues,“This is a Jewish city, now and forever.”[29] Jewish police such as the ADL and AJC complain about neo-Nazis, but they will never complain about this form of Bolshevism.[30]

Let us turn this double standard to the Middle East. For example, Assad has already sent information to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons about his chemical weapons;[31] Assad has even agreed that the international community is welcome to investigate his chemical weapons sites.[32] But the Israeli regime has yet to agree that it will even allow such an investigation about its own nuclear warheads.

Moreover, it was the Israeli regime that provided the so-called evidence that Assad had used chemical weapons.[33] If the West follows logical inference consistently, the West would be attacking the Syrian rebels/terrorists, not Assad, for hundreds upon hundreds of the rebels are consistently pledging their allegiance to al Qaeda almost weekly.[34]
