Operation Choke Point: Choking the life out of the Constitution?

End Operation Choke Point

Operation Choke Point is an initiative launched by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice in 2013 meant to use banks and financial institutions to track down companies suspected of illegal activities. However, it does so without due process—a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure—an idea favored by Republicans. Besides the Fourth Amendment violation, OCP also poses a direct threat to the Second Amendment because it gives the federal government the power to shut down legal guns and ammo dealers, a concern that recently became a reality. Breitbart News recently reported about the owner of a gun store in Hawkins, WI. who received word…

Obama sue me Boehner

Do you remember when Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame members Mitch McConnell and John Boehner capitulated in the budget battle just after the November election? Sure you do. That’s when he led the way in passing the CROmnibus with a promise to exercise the “power of the purse” to shut down Homeland Security if Obama refused change his plans for illegals. Well, Obama hasn’t changed his plans, but apparently the GOP has. The latest comes from a report where Boehner told his conference at a closed-door meeting—remember the days when he promised more transparency?—that he has a team exploring options to…

Note to GOP: Raising taxes a bad idea

Taxes Ahead

What are the Republicans thinking? Coming right out of the gate, at the start of the new GOP-controlled Congress, they began talking about the crazy idea of increasing the gasoline tax. It has little chance of passing, yet can easily taint the party with a tax-raising reputation. Just two days after the swearing-in of the new Congress, the January 8 Wall Street Journal (WSJ) headline reads: “Senate Republicans: Higher Gas Taxes are on the Table.” It states: “Senate Environment and Public Works Chairman James Inhofe (R., Okla.), who just took the reins of the panel, said he is open to…

Can Obama use fast track authority to void Second Amendment?

Second Amendment Safe

As the global push for gun control continues to grow around the world, Constitution-hating Barack Obama is continuing to find ways to push his goal of disarming Americans using the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty. This treaty would undermine the right of Americans the right to bear arms, and essentially would void the Second Amendment. Now that the Socialist-in-chief has to deal with a Republican-controlled congress, Obama is looking for ways to advance his agenda by bypassing congress, something not all that far-fetched. In a meeting of non-governmental organizations and U.N. officials, Obama’s Assistant Secretary of State declared that the White House…

GOP cowards hide behind terrorists and cave on amnesty

Republican Coward seal

Following the Republican “can’t we all just get along?” retreat, Senate Majority Leader and Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member Mitch McConnell informed House Republicans that they should lower their expectations concerning the bill passed in the House of Representatives that funds the Department of Homeland Security, but defunds Obama’s illegal amnesty order. Why? Because he doesn’t have 60 votes in the Senate. His reason may sound valid, but it not true. It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster for non-budget business, but it only takes a simple majority to pass a budget. So, why would McConnell say something that simply…
