Should the Mueller Investigation be Ended?

The Mueller witch hunt “investigation,” should not just end, but must. And it has nothing at all to do with fairness, partisanship, or even who he is investigating.

I’ll explain shortly, but first I’d like to thank the left. I’d like to thank them for being a bunch of lawless enemies of freedom and liberty. I’d like to thank them for attempting to flush our founding documents down the crapper every chance they get.

This may sound strange but it is genuine. For without the left’s constant and consistent radical behavior over the years, I might never have picked up and began studying the Constitution, the Declaration, and the writings of the men who crafted, affirmed and ratified them. Wow – I’m such a geek!

Oh sure, in the past, I read the Declaration, the Constitution and even skimmed the Federalist Papers, but none ever really had the impact or true significance that they do today. But that’s true about most things and most situations. Most of us never truly get serious about something until we feel threatened, for want of a better expression.

Well, I feel threatened – even more so than when Barack Obama was King President. read more

Appoint a Justice – Don’t Appoint One – What’s the Hurry?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The upcoming presidential election is being hailed as the most important in our lifetimes – possibly in the history of this nation.

We always hear this type of thing every election cycle. This time however, the claim is absolute due to the recent passing of Justice Scalia and the subsequent tipping point in the balance of power of the supreme Court.

So I agree with those who claim that we will lose our country – we lose our Constitutional rights and liberties should just one more liberal justice be appointed. For this reason, it is imperative that the Senate leadership not even allow hearings, much less a vote on whomever Obama nominates.

The Senate leadership must understand that literally anything can happen should they allow an Obama nominee to come to a vote. There are simply too many spineless Republican Senators to take that chance. Short of an Article V Conventions of States, there would be no correcting the wrong outcome.

Many have pointed to the history of lame-duck appointments, giving deference to the next Executive – that it hasn’t been done in many decades. But historical precedent aside, Obama has every right under the Constitution to nominate someone, anyone to the court. The interesting thing is that if one reads Article II, Section 2, clause 2, the founders clearly did not make a fuss over the process. It was not some Earth-shattering event, but merely included in the several duties of the President. read more
