Meadows’ Statement on President’s Executive Action on Amnesty

mark-meadowsOn Thursday evening, President Barack Obama announced that he is taking executive action to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants currently in the United States. Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement:

“President Obama’s decision to utterly bypass Congress and grant amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants—against the will of the American people—is lawless, unconstitutional, and frankly, un-American. The separation of powers was carefully written into our Constitution by our Founders to ensure that no one individual would have the power to override the will of the American people. The President’s unprecedented abuse of executive orders is an affront to the voice of the people. The decision to grant amnesty now rather than wait until January to work with the new Congress on a long term solution to our nation’s immigration problem shows that the President is interested in politics, not real solutions.”

The REAL Story Behind the ‘Redskins’ Name

www.warpaths2peacepipes.com

MRC TV – Recently, I was lucky enough to sit down with M. Andre Billeaudeaux who is the author of a new book entitled How the Redskins Got Their Name.

Obviously, the controversy over whether the NFL team’s name is racist is going to be a subject of debate for a long time to come.

I was on the fence as to whether the name was a racial slur. But after my interview with Andre, I came away completely convinced that those who view the name as being a derogatory slur against Native Americans truly lack an understanding of the history of the team as well as the history of the word “Redskin” itself.

The book is written as a children’s book, but it is a fascinating read for anyone who wants to really understand why the entire name controversy is bogus.

Governor-Pat-McCroryCNN Wire/MyFox8 – North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory joined other Republican governors Thursday and said he is open to suing the federal government if President Barack Obama issues an executive order that shields nearly 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Unconstitutional Official Acts

16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256:

The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be In agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:

The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it’s enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it…..

A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the lend, it is superseded thereby.

No one Is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.

REPUBLICANS CAN STOP EXECUTIVE ORDER AMNESTY DEAD

North American Law Center – The little dictator-in-chief is set to announce his unconstitutional attempt to circumvent and subvert the constitutional powers of Congress Thursday night, as he attempts to single-handedly grant millions of illegal aliens defacto amnesty and then head off to Las Vegas to party with Harry Reid.

A little past noon Wednesday the 19th, the White House posted a Facebook announcement that reads as follows;

“It’s time to fix our broken immigration system. Tomorrow night (November 20th), President Obama will address the nation on new commonsense steps he’s taking to fix as much of it as he can.

Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Sues Obama Over Immigration Order

Sheriff JoeNewsMax – An Arizona police chief who calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff” sued Barack Obama on Thursday soon after the U.S. president imposed sweeping immigration reforms, saying the changes were unconstitutional.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose force used racial profiling during a crackdown on illegal migrants last year according to a judge, said Obama has overstepped his powers by bypassing Congress and bringing in the changes himself.

Arpaio’s lawsuit said the reforms, which eased the threat of deportation for about 4.7 million undocumented immigrants, amounted to an amnesty and would encourage more people to cross the border illegally.

Rep. McCaul: ‘Shut Down’ Obama, Not Government

NewsMax – The goal for Republicans is to keep government open, but to “shut down” President Barack Obama’s attempt to bypass Congress with his executive order on immigration, Rep. Mike McCaul told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Friday.

Threats of a government shutdown have been circulating, often from Democrats, who could be looking for a repeat from previous shutdowns that resulted in damage to the Republican Party politically.

House GOP panel: Defunding immigration order ‘impossible’

Yes to Energy

Yes to Energy

This week Democrats in the Senate blocked the approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which would strengthen our nation’s energy security and help create jobs. If completed, the project would do the following things:

Create tens of thousands of jobs. According to the State Department’s Impact Statement: “Construction spending would support a combined total of approximately 42,100 jobs throughout the United States for the up to 2-year construction period.”

Reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil from unstable regions and help securely and efficiently transport more of our energy from Canada, our friend and ally.

Contribute 3.4 billion to the U.S. GDP, according to the State Department.

The House of Representatives voted last week to authorize this project, and a majority of Americans already support it. Even the Washington Post called the continued delay “absurd.”

The permit for construction has been languishing for six years despite the President’s repeated calls for Congress to send him jobs bills to sign. Congress plans to again consider the Keystone Pipeline when we reconvene in 2015, but the President can spur job growth and strengthen America’s energy security now by directing his State Department to approve construction of the project. It’s time to end the delay and say yes to energy.

Smaller Firms Brace For Obamacare Price Shocks

obama laughingCarolina Journal – Already socked with rising premium costs due to Obamacare, Southern Elevator has delayed planned growth and job creation as it contemplates up to $800,000 in added annual health insurance costs a year from now, when employer mandates for medium-size businesses kick in.

“Our health care insurance agent is estimating that we will have a 10 percent increase this year that is currently being priced,” said Rodney Pitts, owner of Greensboro-based Southern Elevator.

That is on top of increases totaling 44 percent since 2012. The company now pays up to $20,000 annually for each employee with spouse and dependent coverage, which is about $9,000 more than it paid a few years ago.

The Moral Case Against Fossil Fuels Matters. And It’s Absurd.

The Daily Signal – Why is the industry viewed as immoral? Because for decades, environmentalist leaders have made a false but unanswered moral case against the fossil fuel industry—by arguing that it inherently destroys our planet and should be replaced with environmentally beneficial solar, wind and biofuels.

Landmark fracking study finds no water pollution

frack baby frackAP – The final report from a landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, found no evidence that chemicals or brine water from the gas drilling process moved upward to contaminate drinking water at a site in western Pennsylvania.

The Department of Energy report, released Monday, was the first time an energy company allowed independent monitoring of a drilling site during the fracking process and for 18 months afterward. After those months of monitoring, researchers found that the chemical-laced fluids used to free gas stayed about 5,000 feet below drinking water supplies.

TWO AMERICAS

lonsberry.com – The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, to obey the law and support themselves and contribute to society, and others don’t.

That’s the divide in America.

he U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued over $2.4 billion in improper payments on food stamps in fiscal year 2014, according to a new audit by the Office of Inspector General (OIG).

Busting Democracy Alliance Myths As secretive liberal donor club garners press attention, misconceptions remain

morning_beacon.2The Democracy Alliance held its biannual donor conference at the ritzy Mandarin Oriental hotel in Washington, D.C., last week. The secretive meeting of liberal donors garnered some press attention, but a number of misconceptions about the organization remain.

The Alliance coordinates the activities of high-dollar liberal and Democratic donors and leading left-wing activist groups, political action committees, and nonprofits. It does not accept donations; instead, it strategically vets and recommends groups for support by its donors, which include some of the wealthiest people in the world.

Those donors must contribute at least $200,000 per year to one of the scores of groups approved by DA staff. Many contribute far more than that.

Meadows Calls on Abbas to Take Action in Response to Recent Attacks

bcgop-exe-8-25-26-18Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement in response to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ remarks on the Israeli synagogue attack that occurred on Tuesday:

On Tuesday we saw the face of pure evil when two Palestinian men attacked and killed five Israeli men, three of whom were dual US-Israeli citizens. There are no words strong enough to condemn the barbaric, horrific attacks that took place in West Jerusalem. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those lost.

While many have applauded Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ condemnation of these attacks, it must be pointed out that Hamas—which is part of the Palestinian Unity Government—praised this attack. As long as the Palestinian government embraces Hamas, statements condemning its terrorist acts are simply empty words. I call on President Abbas to denounce the brutal Hamas terrorists and remove them from the Palestinian government.

Congressman Mark Meadows serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

It’s time for us to put an end to this!

TPPLOGOWe learned today that the President is planning to announce his executive orders tomorrow that would grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. It’s time for us to put an end to this!

Our only chance rests in the House of Representatives. Current government funding is set to run out on December 12th and we expect the House of Representatives will pass a spending bill before that date. We must convince the House to stop executive amnesty by not allowing one dime of money to be spent on the President’s executive amnesty!

Texas introduces law to nullify ALL federal gun laws within the state.

InvestmentWatch – A Texas legislator has introduced a new bill to derail the enforcement of virtually all federal gun control measures within the state’s borders.

“With this bill, Texas could help lead the country forward,” said Scott Landreth, campaign lead for ShallNot.org, a project of the Tenth Amendment Center that advocates for states to protect their citizens from federal overreach. “Passage would have serious impact on the federal government’s ability to carry out its unconstitutional gun control measures already on the books.”

Landreth has suggested that this could create a domino effect.

At issue is the Michigan state legislature’s House Bill No. 4769, which looks likely to pass in coming days. Quite simply, that bill states that no foreign law may take precedence over American law or Michigan state law in a Michigan court room.

United Arab Emirates Designates Muslim ‘Civil Rights’ Group CAIR as a Terror Organization Like ISIS and Al Qaeda

no shariaTownhall – The Council on American Islamic Relations, better known as CAIR, has been designated by the United Arab Emirates as a terror group comparable to ISIS and Al Qaeda. More from Fox News:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was one of 82 groups around the world designated terrorist organizations by the United Arab Emirates, placing it in the company of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and others. While CAIR has previously been linked to Hamas, it has held hundreds of meetings with White House officials on a wide range of community issues and has sought to present itself as a mainstream Muslim organization.

Clarion Project – “The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”

Swedish Paramedics Need Body Armor to Enter Violent Muslim Areas

Is this what is going to happen in the U.S. if, we continue to allow Muslims to come here?

The New American – Sweden was once known for meatballs, midnight sun, Absolut, Volvo, blondes, and Ingmar Bergman. But added to that list may soon be paramedics decked out in military gear, including helmets, bulletproof vests, shin protectors, and gas masks. This is for protection in Muslim areas in which residents attack not only police, but also emergency medical personnel. Writes Speisa.com (edited for style and translation integrity):357adaf2ff3b7c3d2520ccc8c471fc41_M

They [the paramedics] are met with everything from guns to machetes…. “We are not protected anymore as we had been,” the head of Ambulansförbundet, Henrik Johansson, says to Dagens Medicin.

He explains that the Union wants the alarm center and ambulances to have access to the information police have on people who are likely to be violent or have weapons. But the union also wants to introduce what Johansson calls tactical units.

These are emergency medics who are ready to go into hot-spot areas, with riot helmets, bulletproof vests, shin guards and holster packs. They should have equipment adapted to work in such an environment. And of course also a gas mask, Johansson says.

So they will more or less look like the riot police?

“No, like the military,” said Johansson.

Scope of Obama’s Exec. Amnesty Order Would Be Unprecedented

obama 1NewsMax – As early as next week, President Barack Obama is expected to issue an executive order to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, a use of power that would be unprecedented in U.S. history.

According to The Washington Post, presidents for the last 40 years have had broad authority over how the country deals with illegal immigration.

But Obama’s intent to bypass Congress and make new laws could be an outright violation of his constitutional oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed,” the Post said.

Pressure Building to Repeal Two Laws Keeping Oil and Gas Prices High

oil tanker 2The New American – Alaskan Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, soon to chair the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, is already setting the table for a serious conversation about getting rid of at least one archaic law dating back to the mid-1970s: the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975.

That law bans the export of crude oil (with some minor exceptions) and could endanger the oil shale boom as a result. Said Murkowski:

The price American drivers pay for gasoline at their local station is linked to the price of oil set by the global market.
