Arkansas Gun Range Is ‘Muslim-Free Zone’

stop islam 2NewsMax – The owner of an Arkansas gun range has banned Muslims from visiting her facility.

Calling it a “Muslim-free zone,” Jan Morgan, the owner of the Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range in Hot Springs, Ark., said she will no longer allow Muslims on the premises.

“Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?” Morgan wrote in a blog post that has since been removed from her website. Several media outlets reported on the post before it was deleted, including The Blaze.

Waste of the Week: UNC-TV

unc-tv-logo-620x273Civitas – Teacher pay. Medicaid. These are perhaps the two most contentious spending items in this year’s state budget. But continuing to fly under the radar is taxpayer-funded television programming.

UNC-TV was founded in 1955 when its flagship station in Chapel Hill first went on the air. The system is comprised of 13 stations across the state, with the UNC System holding the license for 12 of them and Central Piedmont Community College holding the license for the other one.

Why Vote for Thom Tillis over Kay Hagan

sen reidI am told that there are 340+ bills that the House has passed that Senate Majority Leader Harry “Gridlock” Reid will not bring up for a vote on the Senate floor.     Senate Majority Leader Harry “Gridlock” Reid has to go. People in order to remove Senate Majority Leader Harry “Gridlock” Reid as Senate Majority Leader you need to VOTE REPUBLICAN! We can NOT have 2 more years of Senate Majority Leader Harry “Gridlock” Reid. – Fremont V Brown III

 

What is Important to the TEA Party?

Gun Control & Gun Rights – Kay Hagan has an “F” Rating! It does not get worse than that! There for … Tillis will be better. (NRA and Gun Owners of America)
International Treaties – will be negotiated by a Democrat Controlled Congress… or will Senate be controlled by Republicans that “Might” listen to us? (National Sovereignty issues, Global Warming controls, International Law)
There are things that we can do to affect this Senate Race.
Tillis supports Border Security not Immigration Amnesty.
Obama will appoint many judges – the Senate must approve these… that is a major reason to keep Kay Hagan out of DC – Tillis will moderate Obama’s appointments… pulling the judges back to a more center of the road position for approval.
There are no other candidates on the Ballot that have any chance of beating Kay Hagan – Thom Tillis is the only option this year!

We must hold our elected officials accountable – there are no guarantees that Tillis will be our Constitutional Banner Holder – There is a better chance that he will listen to and be persuaded by our arguments than Kay Hagan has been… her voting record is clear.

KFC apologizes for banning wet wipes at halal restaurant

stop islam 2Fox News – Nothing cleans the grease off dirty fingers quite like a wet wipe after a fried chicken meal.

But one KFC customer in the U.K. was recently refused a wipe at a halal-only restaurant because he was told it violated the location’s policy, reports the Leicester Mercury.

KFC operates dozens of halal stores in the U.K., and 32 in the U.S., that adhere to Islamic law mandating how food is prepared. Customer Graham Noakes said that the chain refused him the wipes because they were soaked in rubbing alcohol and told it was forbidden under Islamic law.

Wisconsin Reporter Was Sent to Cover Michelle Obama’s Speech and What She Says an Aide Told Her Had Her ‘Creeped Out’

First-Amendment-imageThe Blaze – Meg Kissinger is a seasoned reporter at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin’s well-known newspaper. She’s seen a lot in her days. But what she said happened at a speech by Michelle Obama in the state on Monday left her utterly “creeped out.”

Kissinger took to her Facebook and Twitter page to describe what happened. In short, she said, aides for both the first lady and Wisconsin Democratic candidate for governor, Mary Burke, told her she was banned from talking to members of the crowd.

Kissinger was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, covering the first lady’s speech in which she was stumping for Burke.

Agenda 21 In One Easy Lesson

Agenda_21_mobileAmericanpolicy.org – Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows, I am receiving more and more calls for tools to help activists fight back. Many complain that elected officials just won’t read detailed reports or watch long videos. “Can you give us something that is quick, and easy to read that we can hand out,” I’m asked.

So here it is. A one page, quick description of Agenda 21 that fits on one page. I’ve also included for the back side of your hand out a list of quotes for the perpetrators of Agenda 21 that should back up my brief descriptions.

A word of caution, use this as a starter kit, but do not allow it to be your only knowledge of this very complex subject. To kill it you have to know the facts. Research, know your details; discover the NGO players in your community; identify who is victimized by the policies and recruit them to your fight; and then kill Agenda 21. That’s how it must be done. The information below is only your first step. Happy hunting.

What Constitutes Victory in the Left’s War on Home-Cooked Meals? Bigger Government, Natch

dinnerThe Washington Free Beacon – Here are two stories worth paying attention to. The first—“Let’s stop idealizing the home-cooked family dinner,” which ran a couple weeks back in Slate—prompted so much snark that its author swore off Twitter. The second—“The problem with home-cooked meals,” which ran today at VOX DOT COM—covers much the same ground. Indeed, they rely on the same study and even recycle the same AFP image. They are in tone quite similar. Amanda Marcotte and Sarah Kliff desire to reduce in stature the home-cooked meal, from something that should be lionized to something that should be neutrally considered, only appreciated when it’s pragmatic, and, frankly, looked upon with some measure of suspicion.

Feds Spent $300,000 Studying How to Ride Bikes

bikeThe Washington Free Beacon – The National Science Foundation (NSF) spent $300,000 studying how “humans interact with bicycles,” the latest example of what a House committee chairman calls waste in the agency.

The premise for the project, which was conducted between October 2009 and June 2013, was that bicycle dynamics are “poorly understood,” and researchers set out to come up with new designs to encourage more Americans to bike to lower their carbon footprint.

“Although human operator control models exist for numerous aircraft and other vehicles, the bicycle with a rider is a human-vehicle system whose dynamic behavior is poorly understood,” researchers at the University of California, Davis said in a paper publishing their interim results.

Brace for Bad 4th Circuit Ruling

Voter_Integrity_Project_NC“NC Vote suppression Laws Struck Down by Federal Judges.”

At least, that’s how those McClatchy “news” papers describe laws designed to reduce vote fraud and equalize the rights of all citizens seeking free elections; but even sadder, that will be the gist of their “news” reports. North Carolina’s trial of the century will probably suffer this setback along the way, but don’t be discouraged! There is reason for optimism.

This ugly assessment began two days after a three-judge panel for the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit court heard oral arguments in Charlotte. That was when yours truly was finally able to debrief a few attorneys who were more accustomed (than I) to Thursday’s proceedings . . . and it wasn’t pretty.

The judges, Henry F. Floyd, Diana Gribbon Motz, and James A. Wynn Jr. (all elevated by Democratic Presidents) were contentious to both sides of the debate, so I mistakenly viewed it as a possible win for common sense (i.e., those of us interested in preventing vote fraud). Aside from Judge Wynn’s over-the-top rants and raves, well documented by Susan Myrick of Civitas Institute, I naively expected a fair ruling. But after a sit-down with a few well-placed sources, things changed.

“We couldn’t have gotten a worse set of judges in the entire Fourth Circuit,” said one source.

Fracking rule-makers sort thousands of comments

Fracking-MapNews-Record – A member of the North Carolina commission that’s developing fracking regulations says the panel has received dozens of public comments that have caused them “to really go back and do our homework,” but thousands of others offer unusable input such as: “Don’t Frack NC.”

The Mining and Energy Commission expects to receive 50,000 comments by Tuesday when the period for public input ends, though that could be exceeded if there’s a late surge, said commission member James Womack. Hundreds of comments were delivered at four public meetings around the state marked by chanting and singing by people who fear toxic chemicals could escape the wells.

DENR Ends ‘Misleading’ Wind-Power Scheme

duke windCarolina Journal – The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources has ended a misleading advocacy campaign at the state’s aquariums. The campaign asked visitors to help each aquarium facility “go green” by making a financial contribution that would allow each facility eventually to shift to electricity generated solely from wind power.

The campaign informed visitors that fossil fuels are responsible for global warming and encouraged them to help expand the use of power from “renewable” sources by purchasing “renewable energy certificates,” which have been pitched as a way to offset electricity generation from fossil fuels.

The Real Story About What Ended the Great Depression (Hint: It Wasn’t the New Deal)

great_depression-2The Daily Signal – My seventh-grade son recently wrote a U.S. History paper extolling the virtues of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. “It ended the Great Depression,” he wrote with great certainty. He’s only 12 and parroting what the history texts and his teachers told him.

That’s his excuse. What’s Ken Burns’?

Mr. Burns’ docudrama on the Roosevelts—for those who weren’t bored to tears—repeats nearly all the worn-out fairy tales of the FDR presidency, including what I call the most enduring myth of the 20th century, which is that FDR’s avalanche of alphabet-soup government programs ended the Great Depression. Shouldn’t there be a statute of limitations on such lies?

We’ve Spent $22 Trillion on War on Poverty. What Have We Achieved?

10356397_372089532957005_5913199099176411959_nThe Daily Signal – It’s been 50 years now since the federal government launched its “War on Poverty.” But the numbers just released by the Census Bureau suggest we’re in a losing battle.

The poverty rate now stands at 14.5 percent. That’s a drop from the previous rate of 15 percent. But don’t celebrate too quickly. The new rate is almost exactly the poverty rate we had in 1967, only three years after President Lyndon Johnson announced his war.

To put it in further perspective: The poverty rate in 1950 was 32.2 percent. It dropped steadily throughout the ’50s, and had been nearly cut in half before the War on Poverty began. After that, the rate declined slightly, then leveled out.

Public Attitudes toward Federalism: The Public’s Preference for Renewed Federalism

Harald Gao - 3CATO – For much of its history, the United States had a notably decentralized government structure. Since the 1930s, the national government has undertaken new efforts to regulate the economy and society and to redistribute resources. Those new efforts have implied a greater centralization of authority in Washington. In the past the public often supported such centralization. Public opinion about federalism has changed. Voters are more supportive of decentralized policymaking on many issues where they previously supported a stronger national role. This shift in the public mood is consistent with other polling data that indicates profound distrust in the capacity of the federal government to act on behalf of the public good. On some issues, like national defense, much of the public continues to support national primacy. Such issues are often assigned to Washington by the Constitution. In contrast, much polling finds that many citizens believe state and local governments are likely to perform better than Washington. Americans support a more decentralized federalism than in the past both on particular issues and as a general matter of institutional confidence.

Liberalism in America Analysis: Heritage panel discusses the future of the left

robot-characterThe Washington Free Beacon – “The left is intellectually dead, and where it is headed toward is authoritarianism.”

Thus began the bleak remarks of Kevin Williamson, National Review’s roving correspondent, at an event this week in Washington called “Where is liberalism going?” hosted by the Heritage Foundation.

The discussion focused more on where the left would like to go than where it will actually go. According to Williamson and other panelists—David Azerrad of the Heritage Foundation and William Voegeli of the Claremont Review of Books, with the discussion moderated by Ben Domenech of the Federalist—the left’s agenda is the destruction of the American regime of constitutional, democratic self-government.

Week ahead: Advocates plan new front in war over regs

the-hillA coalition of public interest groups will move next week to sharpen the push for stronger health and safety protections, launching a new effort for increased enforcement of regulations currently on the books.

And, contrary to the claims of conservatives in Washington, the advocates say they have the public on their side.

The Enforcement Working Group, a new consortium including the Center for Effective Government, Public Citizen, the Economic Policy Institute and the Natural Resources Defense Council, is preparing to unveil polling to support its case.

The survey concluded that the vast majority of voters favor increased enforcement of the regulations, challenging assertions from congressional Republicans and business groups that Americans view the accumulation of state and federal rules as “job-killing” red tape.

“With near unanimity, voters believe there should be increased enforcement of laws and regulations in the U.S.,” according to the telephone survey of 700 likely voters, conducted by the firm Lake Research Partners.

The poll could serve as powerful ammunition as the groups plan to ratchet up calls for Congress to provide agencies with the resources and power needed to enforce regulations.

“When it comes to enforcement, do agencies have authority to hold violators accountable? Sadly, the answer is often no,” said Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate at Public Citizen.

The effort goes beyond a long-simmering debate on the number and scope of regulations federal agencies have issued.

The groups will press for congressional action on two fronts. First, they’ll push appropriators to provide agencies with the funding needed to enforce their rules. Under current budgetary constraints, for instance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is able to inspect workplaces roughly once a century, on average, Narang noted.

The coalition is also pressing lawmakers to empower agencies to take more meaningful action to penalize violators, including increased ability to pursue criminal cases. Again using the OSHA example, Narang said that the agency cannot levy more than a $70,000 fine for deaths linked to regulatory violations.

However, the push for sharper teeth at agencies is aimed more squarely at the financial industry, where few CEOs have been charged in connection with the economic crisis.

“The public is ready for jail time for corporate executives that engage in criminal activity,” Narang said.

The Heritage Foundation will take an opposing view in the regulatory debate on Tuesday, when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) headlines a discussion at the conservative think tank focused on President Obama’s “imperial presidency.” http://j.mp/1roPrUr

Heritage accuses Obama of not being “shy about circumventing Congress and essentially rewriting the laws.”

“Time and again, President Obama has pushed the limits of this duty,” the group wrote in promotion of the event.

On Monday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a meeting on its proposed Waters of the U.S. rule, looking at the connectivity between small streams and wetlands and larger bodies of water. http://j.mp/1t2sSD8

The Energy Department (DOE) has been one of the more active regulatory agencies under the Obama administration, issuing a swath of new efficiency standards for appliances. http://j.mp/1qCKlQG

Stronger efficiency standards for mobile homes and pre-rinse spray valves will be the focus of two separate DOE meetings next week.

The department has been pushing for more efficient manufactured or mobile homes since June. These homes are built in factories and then transported to a property where they are pieced together. http://j.mp/1qCL4Bm

Pre-rinse spray valves are commercial appliances used at restaurants to rinse off dishes before they are put in the dishwasher. The efficiency standards for these devices haven’t been updated since 2005. http://j.mp/1rpUXrp

Oklahoma Police: Former Employee Beheaded Woman At Moore Workplace

News 9 – MOORE, Oklahoma – A man reportedly beheaded a woman and stabbed another one at a Moore food distribution center Thursday afternoon.

According to Sgt. Jeremy Lewis with the Moore Police Department, coworkers told police that the suspect, 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolen, had recently converted to Islam to become a Muslim. Coworkers said he had been trying to convert them to Islam, as well. That’s why police said they have asked the FBI to investigate Nolen’s background.

A lesson on a Few clauses in the U.S. Constitution by Publius Huldah

The “interstate commerce” clause (Art. I, §8, cl. 3)

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary says “commerce” is the buying and selling of goods.

In Federalist No. 22 (4th para) and Federalist No. 42 (9th & 10th paras), Hamilton and Madison explain the primary purpose of the clause: To prohibit the States from imposing taxes & tolls on merchandize as it is transported through the States for purposes of buying and selling.

The “general welfare” clause (Preamble & Art. I, §8, cl. 1)

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines “welfare” as:

“2. Exemption from any unusual evil or calamity; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government; applied to states.”

It has nothing to do with handouts, public relief, or the feds doing whatever they think is a good idea.

In Federalist No. 41 (last 4 paras), Madison points out that Art. I, § 8, employs “general terms” which are “immediately” followed by the “enumeration of particular powers” which “explain and qualify”, by a “recital of particulars”, the “general phrase”. It is “error” to focus on “general expressions” and disregard “the specifications which ascertain and limit their import”; thus, to argue that the general expression provides an unlimited power is “an absurdity”.

So yes! The powers of Congress over the Country at Large really are limited primarily to those few listed at Art. I, §8, clauses 3-16.

Our Framers understood that “general Welfare”, i.e., the enjoyment of peace and prosperity, and the enjoyment of the ordinary blessings of society and civil government, was possible only with a federal government of strictly limited powers. [Let that sink in.]

The “necessary and proper” clause (Art. I, §8, last clause)

This clause delegates to Congress power to pass all laws necessary and proper to execute its declared powers (Federalist No. 29, 4th para); “the constitutional operation of the intended government would be precisely the same if [this clause] were entirely obliterated as if [it] were repeated in every article”; a power to do something must be a power to pass all laws necessary and proper for the execution of that power, and thus the clause is “perfectly harmless”, a  “tautology or redundancy” (Federalist No. 33, 2nd & 3rd paras). Madison writes to the same effect in (Federalist No. 44, under his discussion of the SIXTH class of powers).

So the clause permits the execution of powers already delegated and enumerated in the Constitution.  No additional substantive powers are granted by the clause.

Learn the enumerated powers delegated to Congress & to the President. With our Votes & Nullification of unconstitutional acts, let’s enforce the Constitution we already have. Don’t let others change or replace it! PH (http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/)
