Cooper: North Carolina will continue to support climate pact

Click here to read about Cooper signed an open letter Tuesday to the international community pledging to help. More than 1,000 signatories have signed the letter.

I think the Cooper and the more then 1,000 signers should have taken the year long course in Earth Science I took in 9th Grade and they would have learned that the planet has been warming and cooling through out its history. Long before mankind.

Has asset forfeiture gone too far? Truck seizure case sparks outrage, a call for change

Fox News – Two years ago, Gerardo Serano – an American citizen, Kentucky farmer and a one-time GOP Kentucky statehouse candidate – was driving his brand new, $60,000 Ford F-250 pick-up truck to visit relatives in Mexico, snapping pictures along the way, when Customs and Border Patrol agents halted him at the border, demanded his cell phone, and asked him why he was taking pictures.

“I just wanted the opening of the bridge. I was gonna take the opening of the bridge, the entrance of the bridge. That’s all I wanted to do,” Serano told Fox News.

As a self-proclaimed student of the Constitution, Serano said he knew his rights, and protested to Customs and Border Patrol agents vehemently when they asked him to unlock his phone.

Learn what the executive office was meant to be—and how to restore it.

The American presidency is often called the most powerful office on earth. This is so not only because the nation which elects the president is the most powerful nation on earth, but also because the American Founders designed the office to be strong and effective. However, the Founders also placed certain restraints on this power, which are necessary to maintain liberty and protect citizens’ rights.

The modern understanding and structure of the presidency are a threat to freedom due to the accumulation of all three powers–legislative, executive, and judicial–in the executive branch and the breakdown of constitutional restraints.

Learn more about this breakdown of the separation of powers and how to restore the Constitutional restraints in this free course taught by Hillsdale College’s politics faculty.
The course is delivered via email, with one lesson per week over ten weeks. Each lesson features lively discussion boards, suggested readings, and weekly quizzes. Activate your free Presidency course now! By clicking here.

Constitutional Conventions/Article V Convention/Nullification

After visiting the above link Constitutional Conventions/Article V Convention/Nullification and reading all the articles and viewing all of the videos please, keep in mind the following:

“It is idiotic to assert that you can rein in a federal government which ignores the Constitution by amending the Constitution! – Pubilus Huldah.

Article V of the U.S. Constitution

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

As anyone can read there are no rules, regulations, guide lines, etc. on how to run a “Convention of States” Constitution Convention. NO GUARANTEES. Anything can happen.  Do any one of you really want to take a chance of losing the Constitution as it now stands? The possible lost of the Bill of Rights? Again, there are NO GUARANTEES as to what we will get if, a “Convention of States” Constitution Convention is convened.

1913: The Turning Point

The New American – In 1913, Woodrow Wilson was the newly elected president. Wilson and his fellow progressives scorned the Constitution and the Declaration. They moved swiftly to replace the Founders’ republic with a new regime.

There is widespread agreement that Wilson did not always show good judgment – for example, in his blunders in international relations – but in the project of overturning the Founding, he and the movement he led selected their targets shrewdly. By the time he left office, the American republic was, as they say, history. The fundamentals of the new regime were in place, and the expansion of government under FDR, LBJ, and Obama was made easy, perhaps even inevitable.

Nineteen-thirteen gave us the 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution. That year also saw the creation of the Federal Reserve. This burst of changes marks the effective beginning of the Progressive Era in American politics, the era in which we now live. Wilson was to do much more that would once have been considered out of bounds, but these three changes were enough to change everything. In 1913, the fundamental agreement the Founders made with the American people about the relation of the states and the federal government was broken.

Poll’s Warning for GOP: Back the Trump Agenda or Face Defeat in 2018

The Hill – “You dance with the one who brung you to the dance.”

The wisdom of that old political adage might seem outdated in this age of expensive consultants, focus groups with instantaneous tracking of reactions, and micro-targeting of voters. But the McLaughlin & Associates poll released this week reinforces the wisdom of that adage for any Republican who wants to avoid defeat in the 2018 primary season and in the general election that follows.

The message of that McLaughlin poll could not be clearer or simpler for Republicans as they choose in the coming weeks between the agenda of President Trump and the agenda of the Beltway insiders: The base that brought you to the dance supports the Trump agenda.Dance with your base and win.Dance with the Beltway and lose.

To be fair, elected Republicans face many practical pressures inside the Washington Beltway. There are always K Street lobbyists for various special interests and for large corporations wanting special favors, all offering generous campaign contributions.

And there are the Alinskyite Democrats and their leftist media threatening personal attacks, smears, and ruin for anyone who crosses their socialist agenda.

Trump Administration’s Transparency Questioned as It Awards First Border Wall Contracts

GovExec.com – The Trump administration has taken another step forward in building a wall between the United States and Mexico. Despite not yet receiving authorization for the president’s signature campaign promise, the Homeland Security Department has selected four companies to build prototypes.

The potential awardees will build the sample barriers with reinforced concrete and will range from 18 to 30 feet tall, DHS’ Customs and Border Protection announced Thursday. The companies will construct their prototypes along the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego. CBP selected Caddell Construction Co., (DE), LLC, from Montgomery, Alabama; Fisher Sand & Gravel Co., DBA Fisher Industries, from Tempe, Arizona; Texas Sterling Construction Co., from Houston; and W. G. Yates & Sons Construction Company, from Philadelphia, Mississippi.

The selection satisfies the first of two requests for proposals issued by CBP. The agency also asked for wall designs using “other materials.” It will make a decision on vendors for that request next week.

Communism and Fascism: The Reason They Are So Similar

The Daily Beast – Communism and fascism—how did two opposite ideologies end up looking so similar? Vladimir Tismaneanu gives his answer in a new book.

Two 20th-century ideologies promised a utopian vision that would ensure infinite happiness. They both stemmed from a political, social, and cultural construct that erased traditional ideas regarding good and evil. Both believed in the destruction of the old world, to build a new international order; each deplored what they saw as the pathetic ennui of bourgeoisie existence; each ideology’s shared purpose was to recruit members of the new utopia.

Those ideologies happen to be communism and fascism, which together brought an orgy of violence, killed millions, and led humanity to its darkest hour, where the final destination was the deplorable Gulags and the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

Vladimir Tismaneanu, a professor of comparative politics at the University of Maryland, noticed how communism and fascism, despite coming from separate ends of the political spectrum—extreme left for the former and extreme right for the latter—surprisingly have much in common. To comprehend the barbarism that plagued the last century, Tismaneanu contends that we must fully come to grips with the thought process that inspired so much destruction. So he sets off to scrupulously examine the intellectual origins, crimes, and failures of these two radical movements in The Devil in History: Communism, Fascism and Some Lessons of the Twentieth Century.

How Western Civilization Remade the World

The story of the West is a grand and unique story, but it is also a universal story. In Jerusalem and in Athens lightning struck. Socrates asked the question what is the right way for a man to live? Not an Athenian, not a Persian, not a Spartan, but a man as a man. In Jerusalem born the knowledge of a god for every human being, not a god of a city, not a god of a people, but the god for all men and all times. That light has remade the world, and that’s what we mean by western civilization.

Traveling? Prepare to Surrender Biometric Data to Big Brother

The New American – Without any statutory or constitutional authority, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is plotting to force all Americans traveling internationally to have their faces scanned for biometric data. Pilot programs are already occurring at major U.S. airports. And for those Americans who do not wish to have their privacy lawlessly invaded and their private biometric data collected and analyzed by Big Brother, the feds have a ridiculous solution: just don’t travel. Seriously. Big Business is jumping on board, too. And the mass-murdering dictatorship enslaving Communist China is unleashing similar Orwellian schemes at airports to use biometric data and facial recognition software, with Uncle Sam helping to blaze the trail. But as criticism grows, with terms such as “police state” being used across the political spectrum, activists hope to quash the power grab in the United States before it gets fully off the ground.

In America, the saga began 15 years ago, when Congress authorized the collection of data on foreigners leaving the country. After September 11, Congress instructed Homeland Security to set up a “biometric exit system.” Under the plan currently being rolled out, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will collect biometric facial data, and combine it with the most advanced facial recognition software and “cloud computing,” according to CBP officials quoted in media reports. Homeland Security documents show pilot programs began last summer, with the feds using cameras between the boarding pass readers and the airplane to “take a photograph of each traveler prior to boarding.” Those photos were then matched with “previous-acquired photos of the same traveler.” When a match was not found, the traveler was ordered to provide fingerprints. Airlines including Delta and JetBlue collaborated in the lawlessness.

Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_for_Radicals

The Rules

  • “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
  • “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
  • “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
  • “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
  • “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
  • “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
  • “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
  • “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
  • “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
  • “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
  • “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
  • “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
  • “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

 

New map reveals part of NC Republicans’ redistricting plan.

News Observer – State lawmakers on Saturday released a new map showing how they want to redraw state House districts.

The proposed map comes after courts ruled that 2011 election maps for the state House and Senate included unconstitutional racial gerrymanders. State Rep. David Lewis, a Harnett County Republican who co-chairs the legislature’s joint redistricting committee, said new Senate maps will likely be released on Sunday.

Public hearings are scheduled for Tuesday and Lewis hopes the House will vote on his plan on Friday. click here to read more.
