Poll: What do you think Obama was doing while American's were being killed in Benghazi?

Despite what some may think, the Constitution is no magical incantation against government wrongdoing. Indeed, it’s only as effective as those who abide by it. However, without courts willing to uphold the Constitution’s provisions when government officials disregard it and a citizenry knowledgeable enough to be outraged when those provisions are undermined, it provides little to no protection against SWAT team raids, domestic surveillance, police shootings of unarmed citizens, indefinite detentions, and the like.

Unfortunately, the courts and the police have meshed in their thinking to such an extent that anything goes when it’s done in the name of national security, crime fighting and terrorism. Consequently, America no longer operates under a system of justice characterized by due process, an assumption of innocence, probable cause and clear prohibitions on government overreach and police abuse. Instead, our courts of justice have been transformed into courts of order, advocating for the government’s interests, rather than championing the rights of the citizenry, as enshrined in the Constitution.

Just recently, for example, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in U.S. v. Westhoven that driving too carefully, with a rigid posture, taking a scenic route, and having acne are sufficient reasons for a police officer to suspect you of doing something illegal, detain you, search your car, and arrest you—even if you’ve done nothing illegal to warrant the stop in the first place.

In that same vein, the U.S. Supreme Court declared in a 5-4 ruling in Navarette v. California that police officers can, under the guise of “reasonable suspicion,” stop cars and question drivers based solely on anonymous tips, no matter how dubious, and whether or not they themselves witnessed any troubling behavior.

And then you have the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear Hedges v. Obama, a legal challenge to the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), thereby affirming that the President and the U.S. military can arrest and indefinitely detain individuals, including American citizens, based on a suspicion that they might be associated with or aiding terrorist organizations.

I do believe so!  Once the SUPREME COURT is in the pocket of the far left-IT WILL BEDONE!!

the same things are happening now as was in the 30s; remember this people , whoever doesent study history is doomed to repeat it, all the signs are there people

Are "We" recreating The Third Reich ?  no.  We're going to prevent it.

But Barack Obama is a Dedicated, Confirmed Marxist-Socialist and proven Fascist Dictator since becoming president. He shares the SAME basic Philosophy as Lenin/Stalin, Hitler, Mao Tse Tung, Kim, Castro, Ho Chi Mihn, and Pol Pot.

Agreed 1000000%

In recent decades the US Supreme Court has taken the position that they are the law. That these 9 justices will determine under what law and rules we will live by. The  US Constitution says other wise, and it is time Congress stood up and challenged the Supreme Court.

First by limiting  service on the court to 20 years, or age 75, whatever comes first.

Second, by implementing states rights and specifically re-establishing the Bill of Rights, and eliminating Executive Orders which are not delineated by the Constitution.

Agree.!!!

AMEN!!! In other words...they need to do their JOBS!!!

Yea, the Supreme Court is going to say that they are the "law."  There is a grave potential danger, overreach is being done with their tinpot leader. They are going around proclaiming that "olblameacare" is the "law of the land."  They want us to bow down in submission. Yes, we are a "Nation of Laws."  However bad laws should be abolished/repealed.  Executive orders also have their limitations on the Presidents who are fit to recognize and respect the limitation, and not wield "Executive orders" like an iron fist like oblamea is doing.  The Bill of Rights and Our Constitution is still established, however the tinpot regime is doing end runs around it left and right.  oblamea is not upholding the Oath to Preserve and Protect the Constitution.  One of the reasons that he should be immediately relieved of his office!

Just remember this ...... THE MARXIST/COMMUNISTS LIE!  An oath to uphold the Constitution means nothing to these people.  They live on lies!

How much you want to bet Obama didn't swear on the bible when he was sworn in.

Everyone else in the world is warning us of this but we Americans are too busy worshiping Hollywood and a false president to see it. When you have the NSA recording everything from everyone, how can we think the NSA won't use all that info to make our elected do whatever the NSA or who controls the NSA wants. We are on a sinking ship with a simple fix but everyone is too busy for all that right now.

Perhaps the same out come for the Third Reich Obama leader will be the same as Hitler?

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
