The right of citizens of the United States to vote

Right to voteOur United States Constitution very specifically states in three different places that Citizens have the right to vote in elections. Not illegal immigrants. Not people from other countries.

Citizens. Period.

Below is the exact wording for each of the three amendments addressing the right to vote.

Amendment XV

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude–

Amendment XIX

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

Amendment XXIV

The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax.

Note that each of the three begin with the words, The right of citizens of the United States to vote.

Thus, it becomes very clear that any elected official who has sworn an Oath of Office to “support and defend the Constitution” and who openly supports, including not taking action to stop illegals from being registered to vote and/or actually voting, is violating their Oath and should be immediately removed from office.

Federal law, namely 18 United States Code 1918, provides the penalties for violation of the Oath of Office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 and specifically includes: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.

This Patriot likes removal, confinement AND a fine. And no pension benefits.

It is anyone’s guess at this point how many vacant seats we would have in Congress right now IF this law were enforced.

The bigger picture, however, begs the question, WHY is it not enforced?

Capitol Hill B&G ClubAt the Capitol Hill Boys and Girls Club, those individuals who have been elected to represent us, are, instead, mostly (not all) living a fairly lavish lifestyle, courtesy of the American Taxpayer. And why would they bring such a wonderful thing to an end by supporting and defending the “Supreme Law of the Land.”

Factually, there is another Federal Law that hundreds of local, state and national elected representatives are violating, calling for time in jail. Many persons who are violating their Oath are also violating this specific law.

Title 8. United States Code Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals, harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.

We have “Sanctuary” areas all across the United States where illegal immigrants are concealed and are harbored and are shielded in direct violation of that Code.

The penalty for those persons who harbor or conceal an illegal immigrant (as in Sanctuary cities, counties and states), or who shield them from detection by agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is five years in prison.

Founder Alexander Hamilton said, “A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.”

When illegal immigrants can obtain licenses to drive, a requisite to obtaining a voter ID card, and when it has been proven that they have been voting, our freedom is being taken away.

Make no mistake.

If illegals can (and do) vote and cast their ballots for those who will allow them to stay in our beautiful country, and live off of we taxpayers, we are at risk.

And a big reason is that We the People have have been complacent. We have not demanded and ensured that elected representatives abide by their solemn Oath.

Several freedoms are now limited or facing all-out extinction, including freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, to name a few.

And though I do not like my cousin Patrick Henry using the word “rulers” in this next quote, that is the time they lived in, that is what had been done throughout most of the world, people were governed by power-hungry rulers, monarchs, tyrants.

Henry said, “The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.”

Transactions such as over 260 workplace harassment lawsuits (including sexual abuse) against members of Congress have been hidden behind the “Congressional Accountability Act of 1995” that has paid out over $17 million in taxpayer funds as hush money to keep accusers quiet. No public records exist. That is pretty concealed. That is criminal.

And there are many more abuses by members of Congress of their positions, given to them with trust by We the People, which they violate, day after day, costing We the Taxpayer billions upon billions of dollars, which includes, of course, providing financial assistance and aid to illegal immigrants.

Remember November ConstitutionIt is time to round up these people violating their Oath of Office and throw them out. En masse, if need be. To send a message that We the People will not stand for it anymore.

Founder and third president Thomas Jefferson summed it up quite nicely, when he said, “Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their power; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us.”

And, if our Justice Department cannot or will not do it, We the People can. And must.

At the voting booth.

Find and vote only for those individuals who have proven by their actions that they do, in fact, support and defend our mighty U.S. Constitution.

Make the Constitution Great Again!

Remember in November!

Veterans Day 2019 – Thank you Vets

US_Armed_ForcesIn the United States there is a day honoring all of our veterans.

That day is today – Veterans Day.

A veteran is any person who has served in any branch of the United States Armed Forces and was discharged, left the service, under any conditions other than dishonorable.

The significance of this particular day is that it marked the end of World War I which formally ceased at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

Thus, 101 years ago, today.

A Congressional act, approved on May 13, 1938, declared November 11 to be a national holiday, stating that November 11 is “a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day’.” The name was changed from Armistice Day to Veterans Day in 1954.

Vets Day Honoring All Who ServedSo, thank you Veterans.

We are still the Land of the Free.

Because of the Brave, our Vets.

As a final note, for those who may not know, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the attributive form (no apostrophe) is used rather than the possessive case as the official spelling “because it is not a day that ‘belongs’ to veterans, it is a day for honoring all veterans.”

Politicians Who Claim No One Is Above The Law

sanctuary_citiesIt has become quite popular for politicians to talk about no one being above the law. Yet, there are, more than likely, scores of elected officials who should be in prison if no one is truly above the law.

One of the biggest abuses occurring at present is the encouragement and harboring of illegal immigrants, which carries a penalty of five years in prison.

Title 8 of the United States Code, Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii), makes it an offense for “any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.”

Yet here in the United States of America, there currently exist over 200 cities, counties and states calling themselves “Sanctuary,” meaning they are not only encouraging illegal persons to come and live there, but they are then harboring them, shielding them from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.).

SFO trashThe most horrible part of harboring illegal immigrants is that these cities and municipalities are using billions upon billions of American Citizen tax dollars to fund the schooling, medical care and more of these millions of illegal occupants.

And, being the most “progressive” of states, Governor Newsom in California, recently signed legislation making it “legal” for these illegal people to sit on state boards and commissions.

As the leader, California spends billions upon billions annually taking care of illegal immigrants yet cannot properly respond to disasters nor even keep the streets in their cities clean of debris and excrement. They ban plastic straws but, in many cities, there are hundreds, thousands of needles used by addicts littered upon public walkways. Their homeless population of American Citizens, including our Veterans, is absurd.

To top it off, there are those in Congress who have publicly announced what illegal immigrants should do to avoid being tracked down by I.C.E. personnel.

Some have even been so bold as to have their office staff fly to the border and personally escort illegal persons across our border.

sanctuary-citiesAs our U.S. Constitution states that one of the jobs of Congress is to protect our states, and as they have allowed (and encouraged) continuous illegal border crossings, they should, rightfully, be expelled from Congress for violating their Oath of Office to Support and Defend said Constitution.

Thus, the question remains unanswered.

How is it that “no one is above the law” when our elected representatives have been some of the worst law-breakers of all time, essentially robbing taxpayers of tens billions of dollars annually supporting illegal foreigners that they encourage to come to – and stay in – our land.

It is especially concerning when one considers that all of these actions listed here are and have been done in the open, in complete public view.

It almost seems as if these politicians are flaunting that they really are above the law. All the while claiming that no one is.

It is time for Americans to become armed with knowledge of our U.S. Constitution and our laws and hold public officials accountable. The easiest way to learn is with the award-winning In Search of Liberty Constitution movie. In addition, for more in-depth study there is a one-day Constitution Boot Camp from Building Blocks for Liberty or consider KrisAnne Hall’s online Liberty First University.

New Painter Refuses to be a Struggling Artist

Mirit and her First Sale - Even Water BreaksThere are artists who create their vision and hope that someday, in the not too distant future, they will make it, that they will be discovered. Then there are artists, such as Mirit, who break that mold entirely. The first sale by the 43-year-old novice painter was for $28,000 – within months after she picked up painting brushes for the very first time.

“Even though I came to the game late and only taught myself to paint a few months ago, I swore that I would never be a starving artist,” Mirit says. “I’m a business woman and an artist and decided that I will focus on making high-end art for collectors, celebrities and people who can afford the quality of the art that I want to create.”

The proud owner of Mirit’s first sale, “Even Water Breaks,” is Marina Shea, an avid South African art collector who operates several dental offices in Southern California. A lover of beaches, Marina was immediately drawn towards the painting due to its sensual and romantic nature, encased by a dynamic, heavily lacquered natural wood frame.

MiritOne of Mirit’s driving forces is not being discouraged by “art critics,” especially those who may spew their negative judgment upon new painters, or artists of any kind, while in many cases not being able to create art of their own.

Born in Israel, raised in a Nigerian jungle in Africa, and then legally immigrating to the United States, Mirit is not your typical artist. She escaped an extremely abusive marriage from a disbarred attorney and found herself on welfare with two young daughters to raise.

To provide for her family, she entered the business world and became very successful in the field of high-tech, long before she even considered painting as a vocation.

“For some reason,” Mirit says, “I can paint with no former training. It’s taken over my life. I paint every chance that I get and sometimes wake up in the middle of the night or at 5 a.m. because I have to paint.”

Mirit is blazing a new trail, one that very few novice artists have ever traversed. One of her strongest beliefs that continues to guide her is, “I truly believe that we’re all artists at heart.” Learn more about her and check out her unique art as prints, home décor and more at Mirit.
