The Three Unequal Branches of Government

American Perspective

The Three Unequal Branches 295pI expect we’ve all heard the phrase, “three coequal branches” used to describe the composition of our federal system of government. In fact, we’ve probably heard it so many times that we don’t even pay attention, we just accept it as fact and move on. But, is it true? Are the three branches of our federal government really “coequal?

When that phrase popped up in an article that I was reading a few nights ago, something rose up inside of me and said “no, the three branches are not coequal.” When I found the phrase being used in another article the next day, I started to ponder just how unequal the branches of our federal government really are.

The three branches of our federal system of government are legislative (Congress), executive (President) and judicial (Supreme Court). This is the order in which they appear in the U.S. Constitution

Constitution Party says: There is only one conservative party left in America

 

cp20logo3

Madison, WI-With all of the uncertainty generated by the circus act of this Republican presidential primary, one thing has been made very clear:  The Republicans are no longer conservative.  This is not a surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.  However, with their current front runner, it has removed all doubt.  There is only one conservative party in The United States.  It is the Constitution Party.

Our Seven Principles are:

1.       Life: For all innocent human beings, from conception to natural death;

2.       Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;

3.       Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;

4.       Property: Each individual’s right to own and use personal property without government burden;

5.       Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;

6.       States Sovereignty: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government is reserved for the state and local jurisdictions;  nothing in this statement is an affirmation of anti-semitism, anti-Zionism, or any race-based criteria.  CPoW is a Bible-based political party and we condemn and reject racism and anti-semitism.

7.       American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

 

If you are a conservative, it is time for you to come home.  Contact the Constitution Party today.

Endorsements and the Effect of Compromise

Here is an article by Bob Peck.

American Perspective

Thumbs-Up.jpgWhen we give our endorsement to someone or something, we intrinsically connect ourselves to the object of that endorsement and to the values which it embodies, thus lifting – or lowering – ourselves to the level of the entity we have endorsed.

When we give our endorsement to something moral and virtuous, we elevate ourselves. Our names and our reputations partake of the honor inherent in the object of virtue with which we become associated, and which we acknowledge as representing the righteous standard. Even if our own conduct does not currently embody all of the virtues of the object of our endorsement, our decision to embrace that higher standard will ultimately draw us upward into increasing conformity to it.

Conversely, when we give our endorsement to something of lower morals, or which lacks virtue, we diminish ourselves. Our names and our reputations partake of the dishonor inherent in…

The Mother of Exiles

“Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger,
as ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.” Exodus 23:9

By Riley J. Hood—Milwaukee County Constitution Party

            “Long live the republic!  All hail!  Last asylum of oppressed humanity!”- The 2/18/1815 Niles Register-p.343 The Dawn’s Early Light by Walter Lord 1972.  I view asylum as the first priority of Immigration and naturalization policy.  I hate the thought of sending a dissident back to certain death under a tyrannical regime.  But that means asylum for the victims for pogroms and genocide, it does not mean asylum for the perpetrators.
What about the Statue of Liberty?  What about the “Mother of Exiles?” What about, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”-The New Colossus Emma Lazarus 1883

  • Emma Lazarus was not a founding father. She was a nineteenth century poet, who was part of the New York elite at that time.  She was born into a Jewish family that was originally from Portugal and had settled in New York before the American Revolution.  Emma was interested in her Jewish ancestry, and became interested in helping persecuted Jews. She wrote articles on the subject and a book called “Songs of a Semite.”  In 1883 she wrote “the New Colossus” and the poem was placed on the statue of liberty in 1903.  Emma never got to see her achievement as she died on November 19, 1887.
  • The “New Colossus” was about America being a refuge to persecuted people, particularly, the Jewish people.  There is a big difference between people running for their lives, and violent people trying to take over.  The above quote from the Niles register was during the War of 1812.  The Madison administration knew the difference between immigration and invasion.
  • The United States Constitution, Article V., Section 4 states: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and Shall protect each of them against Invasion:”
  • The United States Constitution, Article I., Section 8 states that among Congress’ delegated authorities are “To establish an uniform rule of naturalization,”
  • James Madison said, “When we are considering the advantages that may result from an easy mode of naturalization, we ought also to consider the cautions necessary to guard against abuses. … aliens might acquire the right of citizenship, and return to the country from which they came, and evade the laws intended to encourage the commerce and industry of the real citizens and inhabitants of America, enjoying at the same time all the advantages of citizens …”

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin affirms the integrity of the borders of the United States and the Constitutional authority and duty of the federal government to guard and to protect those borders, including the regulation of the numbers and of the qualifications of immigrants into the country. We favor a moratorium on immigration to the United States, except in extreme hardship cases or in other individual special circumstances, until the availability of all federal subsidies and assistance be discontinued, and proper security procedures have been instituted to protect against terrorist infiltration. We insist that every individual group and/or private agency which requests the admission of an immigrant to the U.S.be required to legally to provide housing and sustenance for such immigrants, bear full responsibility for those immigrants, and post appropriate bonds to seal such covenants. We oppose any extension of amnesty to illegal aliens. We affirm that clearly delineated and secure borders are inherent features of a Nation state.  A borderless state of anarchy means a loss of National Sovereignty.

The Real State of the Union

American Perspective

Darrell-Cynthia-195p.jpgMy friend, Darrell Castle, producer of the weekly Castle Report, was recently interviewed on the Home Front program with former state representative, Cynthia Davis. Their conversation began with a review of some of the key events and issues of the past year that are most effecting our lives. It’s a good interview and worth taking the time to listen to.

However, it was in the later portion of the interview that Cynthia and Darrell brought out what I believe to be some particularly profound insights that reveal the true state of our union and of the Christian and conservative right. What I hear is the story of a people who have placed partisan loyalty ahead of guiding principles, put more trust in man, money and political power than in simply doing what is right and appear to have lost the will to correct the course.

I don’t say these…

Wrong-Way Republicans

 

Wrong Way 295pThe Conservative Right seems to operate from a general assumption that things keep getting worse because liberals are in power and democrats win all the elections. However, I got curious and did a little research on the topic. I discovered that over the past 20 years, republicans have held 57% of the control of our federal government – 68% if you add in the Supreme Court – that’s a 68/32 split in favor of the republicans. Among the union states, the elephant party holds complete control (legislature and governor) of nearly half the states (23) – more than three times as many as the dreaded donkeys (7). It turns out that America is overwhelmingly republican-controlled.

So why hasn’t so much as one unconstitutional federal agency or program been abolished, or defunded, or even had its funding reduced, or at least not had its funding increased? And why haven’t any of the states begun to dismantle their social welfare programs, eliminate regulatory bureaucracies, significantly reduce taxes or implement anything remotely resembling what was once known as the conservative agenda?

It might be an unpleasant fact to face, but the truth is that the majority of those elected by the Conservative Right no longer represent the values once associated with the conservative movement and its favored political party. Some have gradually, and even unwittingly, adopted elements of the secularist-socialist-statist worldview to which republicans once provided an opposition. Others have succumbed to the allure of power or have simply sold out to lobbyists and big money donors who can assure their reelection. We’re not talking about just a few“RINOs.” The compromise, corruption and general sellout of traditional conservative values has become pandemic in the Republican Party.

Some people think that their representative is “pretty conservative,” citing, “he voted right on the big issue in this session; I know that, because he sent me a letter telling me so.” Unfortunately, many of us don’t realize the deals that are cut and the games that are played out of public view.

For example, Eagle Forum president, Ed Martin, explained in an interview with former state representative, Cynthia Davis, that in last year’s Boehner-Obama secret budget deal, all but 29 republicans voted to advance a democrat budget to the floor where it would have enough support to pass. Then, an hour later, the majority of those republicans voted against the same budget. The net effect was that republicans enabled the bill to get to the floor to be passed, yet most were able to go home to tell their conservative constituents that they voted against the reckless budget.

I don’t know whether republicans do such things because they are evil, cowardly, or inept, but it really doesn’t matter since the outcome is the same.

For a more thorough look at the systemic nature of the betrayal and duplicity, I highly recommend you listen to the full Cynthia Davis/Ed Martin interview.

Yes, many of your nice conservative republican representatives are actually lying to you. Remember, a lie is not merely a “non fact,” but is any endeavor to deceive, including an endeavor by your representative to make you think they “held the line,” when, in reality, they sold out your values.

This is going on at the state level as well. Listen to this discussion (begins at the 7:00 minute mark and continues through 11:30) between Washington State Representative David Taylor and former representative Jason Overstreet, for an example of orchestrated republican deception relating to the 2015-17 Washington state budget. While republican leadership serenaded the faithful with a song of “No New Taxes,” 90% of their legislators voted for a budget built on a $17 billion tax increase over 10 years.

Based on conversations with friends who have served in other state legislatures, it’s apparent that similar examples could be found in most every state.

This past September, Senator Ted Cruz gave one of the most powerfull speechesthat I’ve heard from a sitting member of congress (click here for transcript). Cruz pulled back the curtain on the corruption, compromise and deceit that has become the republican party, including an explanation of how “show-votes” are used topacify the conservative rubes. As Cruz points out, it would be bad enough if republican leadership merely betrayed conservatives, but, in reality, they actually hold their party’s base in contempt.

This isn’t meant to discourage anyone, but to shake, wake, and make the Christian-Conservative-Right realize that you’re being taken for a ride on a republican bus that’s going the wrong way. There is hope and there are answers, but you’re going to have to find the courage to get off the bus and stand for principle, not just party.

That includes being willing to lose a few battles while fighting to win the war; and it includes being willing to depose every incumbent who does not hold strictly to the Biblical-constitutional-liberty standard. You don’t send the establishment a message by reelecting their lackeys; you send them a message by voting them out and taking away their power! That’s the only message they understand.

More importantly, God does not have a track record of rewarding tepidness, compromise, deceit or disloyalty, and He is the only One who can truly heal the land. America has gone beyond the point from which the conservative movement can restore it. For that matter, I believe the conservative movement has degenerated beyond the point from which it can itself recover. The sooner we come to grips with that, the sooner we can move on from trusting in men, money, political parties and power structures, and get back to trusting in God as our only hope; demonstrating that trust through unswerving devotion to His righteous cause is the only answer, not being dissuaded from our course for a mere win at the polls, or for fear that the other party might get in.

I’ll stand alone for principle if need be, but I won’t compromise the standard to join a heard of pachyderms stampeding off in the wrong direction.

Don’t You Know There Is A War On?

In light of the events in Paris, this is worth repeating. It’s time to WAKE UP!

Battle against the Barbary Pirates Battle against the Barbary Pirates

I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.” Psalms 120:7

By Riley J. Hood-State Chairman

            There has been a war on since 630AD. What war is that? It is the Islamic war to take over the world; and that includes America. Before America became a military power, Muslims referred to the British Empire as the “Great Satan.” Why? Because England’s Navy was closing down the Islamic slave trade and curbing Islamic Piracy.  Early in our history, American citizens were being enslaved on the high seas by the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims, supported by the Ottoman Empire. The phrases “going pirate,” and “turning Turk” were interchangeable in the 1700s and early 1800s.  Our US Constitution Article I, Section 8, paragraphs 11-12 provides for letters of Marque and Reprisal, meaning Congress may authorize armed merchantmen to take these pirates…
