‘America’s Arch Enemy George Soros, Who Is He?

Although I posted this article earlier in the year, under a different headline. I am reposting it again out of popular demand. This man is a declared enemy of America as a Constitutional Republic and the people have the right to know who this man is and what his intentions are toward our nation. Should he be indicted by the new Attorney General or not? Gyorgy Schwartz, AKA George Soros was born on August 12, 1930 to Jewish Hungarian parents in Budapest. His father Tivadar Schwartz, a lawyer was an escaped prisoner of war. When he was 13 years old, and Nazi Germany occupied Hungary Gyorgy even survived the "Battle of Budapest"in 1945. He moved to England in 1947 and lived with his uncle and later attended the London School of Economics, where he became a student of the philosopher Karl Popper. He became deeply influenced by Popper's book, "The Open Society and its Enemies." Read more

Happy Constitution Day

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. "In a very real sense, it was then -- in 1787 -- that the revolution truly began. For it was with the writing of our Constitution, setting down the architecture of democratic government, that the noble sentiments and brave rhetoric of 1776 took on substance, that the hopes and dreams of the revolutionists could become a living, enduring reality, stated President Ronald Reagan. Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all, By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall; In so righteous a cause let us hope to succeed, For heaven approves of each generous deed. John Read more

The Evil Schemes of Gyorgy Schwartz AKA George Soros

Gyorgy Schwartz, AKA George Soros was born on August 12, 1930 to Jewish Hungarian parents in Budapest. His father Tivadar Schwartz, a lawyer was an escaped prisoner of war. When he was 13 years old, and Nazi Germany occupied Hungary Gyorgy even survived the "Battle of Budapest"in 1945. He moved to England in 1947 and lived with his uncle and later attended the London School of Economics, where he became a student of the philosopher Karl Popper. He became deeply influenced by Popper's book, "The Open Society and its Enemies." He moved to New York City in 1956 and worked as a trader for F.M. Mayer until 1959. George Soros is now chairman of "Soros Fund Management," a hedge fund company. In 1997, Soros was known as the man who broke the Bank of England and he was blamed by the Malaysian Prime Minister of collapsing their currency during the Asian financial crisis. Soros was also Read more

Globalism Or Liberty

A Nation Must Decide Who would not be faint of heart as the world is forced toward the slavery of a "New World Order," or Globalism, if you will Already America's socialist leadership would have foreign United Nation troops policing American citizens. Weak leadership within the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate has sold Americans into economic slavery to feather their own nests. Have we become a nation of cowards that would not defend what our Founding Fathers won for us? Is this truly the last generation of free Americans? Those Americans that espouse Globalism only seek to create a world two-class system of totalitarian world government that would keep all but a small super-elite class in continual power, while the bulk of the world becomes enslaved and under-educated Why then, would our Founding Fathers include the Second Amendment, that states, "A well regulated Read more

The real issue with Kim Davis

"Conscientious objection is a right that is a part of every human right. It is a right." Pope Francis when asked about Kim Davis I agree in general and specifically. America has been a nation that recognizes the right of the individual to walk to the beat of a different drummer while respecting the right of the majority to have standards. Right now we seem to have a court that over rules the majority in almost every vote, its own precedent and case law, and Federal law which restricted its jurisdiction to suddenly change the rules. At the very least, those caught in that current should be treated with the deference to their conscience. It is not hard to find ways to allow some individuals to exercise their new rights while allowing people who believe that they are being made to participate in a fraud to go their own way. Not doing so creates unnecessary conflict. Those who object Read more

First State Animal Shelter/SPCA Proposes Public Contract Extensions

Controversy Remains By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer In an apparent change of strategy, First State Animal Shelter/SPCA Director, Kevin Usilton, has proposed a one-year extension (to June 30, 2016) of all public animal control contracts in Delaware after previously announcing that they would be terminated by September 15, 2015. Currently, about 40 FSAS/SPCA animal control officers and other employees are scrambling to find new jobs in anticipation of the termination, as the State of Delaware moves to assume direct administration of animal control functions through the Office of Animal Welfare. Annual FSAC-SPCA annual contracts ranged as follows: Sussex County ($682,616), Kent County ($895,041.12), New Castle County ($1,035,000), Wilmington ($600,000), City of Dover ($40,000) and the Delaware Department of Public Health for rabies ($275,520) and cruelty reimbursement of ($106,000); Read more

The Voting Rights Act Of 1965

An Act To enforce the fifteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and for other purposes http://www.ourdocuments.gov/doc.php?flash=true&doc=100&page=transcript Sec. 2. No voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure shall be imposed or applied by any State or political subdivision to deny or abridge the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color. If the Delaware socialist General Assembly wants illegal , undocumented aliens to vote in Delaware, they will have to enact legislation to do so. Until then, the U.S. Constitution and The Voting Rights Act of 1965 plainly states who can vote. It plainly states that one must be a "citizen of the United States." A bill from the power company or doctors office is not sufficient identification to prove citizenship or to vote. Read more

Another Reason to Oppose Fast Track

TPA Fast Track Authority could be Trojan Horse for Open Borders Dick Morris exposes how Congress would be foolish to give up its authority to make amendments and give up its proper role of supervision of trade. Now buried in the Trans Pacific Partnership is climate change and open borders. It may be a stealth EU. Some Republicans have been quick and even shrill to denounce as amnesty anything that addresses the problem of the 11 million immigrants here without proper papers. Here is something worse than amnesty. It is open borders. They had better wake up on this one. Republican leaders are blindly and inexplicably pushing Fast Track in spite of the fact the last 8 years have demonstrated that many responsible trade pacts can be passed without it. In fact, you have a broader and more responsible consensus when the President knows that Congress has there as an equal partner. Reagan Read more

USG Offers Redress for NO-Fly Listees

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer No longer will persons on the infamous DHS/TSA NO-Fly List be legally left "hanging in the air". The US Government, in response to legal challenges, has revised its redress procedures for persons placed on Department of Homeland Security's NO-Fly List, according to an article in FAS Roundup. The US Department of Justice announced in an April 13,2015 court filing that persons placed on the NO-Fly List will have new opportunities to challenge the denial of boarding on commercial aircraft. Before the ruling, the government steadfastly refused to confirm or deny that persons were placed on the list for reasons of national security. Challengers argued that the procedures were constitutionally deficient or otherwise improper.

Stolen Valor Act Introduced in the Delaware House of Representatives

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer Delaware 41st District State Representative, Rich Collins (R-Millsboro) has proposed HB 80, the Stolen Valor Act. The bill, as written, would expand the legal definition of "criminal impersonation" to include those who falsely claim to be current or past members of the US military for the fraudulent purpose of "obtaining money, property, or other tangible benefit." The proposed statute would treat this as a Class A misdemeanor and impose a minimum fine of $1,000 on persons convicted. Representative Collins stated that his legislation differs considerably from a previously failed federal statute that was ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in 2012 in a six to three decision that held that the law infringed on an individual's right to protected speech in reference to false claims of having been awarded military medals, awards or honors. "I Read more

Saga of “Millie” Continues

by: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer The Dog Panel hearing in the Jake and Nancy Smith case, involving their pet, "Millie" is scheduled for 7 p.m., Monday, April 13 in the Sussex County Council Chambers, located on 2 The Circle in Georgetown, DE according to a 4/7/15 article in the Cape Gazette. "Millie", a white and brown Jack Russell Terrier mix, alleged to be a dangerous animal by a few of Smith's neighbors, is reportedly being held incommunicado at the First State Animal Shelter, located on 32 Shelter Circle, Camden, DE 19934. We are unable to confirm this due to a judicial gag order, issued in this case. The panel is charged with determining the dog's ultimate fate, up to and including possible euthanasia. Read more

** UPDATE ** Smith v. SPCA

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer A judicial gag order has been issued on all parties concerned in the case of litigation of John "Jake" and Nancy Smith (plaintiffs) against Delaware Animal Care and Control, filed in Delaware Superior Court over possible illegal impoundment of their dog, "Millie" under guise of authority. Attorney John Brady, representing the Smiths contends that the 1981 state statute that excluded Sheriffs and Sheriff's Deputies from certification as police offices by the Delaware Council on Police Training also did not include animal control officers as police officers. The litigation essentially argues that only sworn and certified police officers can legally execute arrest and search and seizure warrants under the present Delaware Code, Title 11, Chapter 19. Both Kent and Sussex Counties have contracted animal control services with the First State Animal Read more

Talk Show Host Legally Challenges SPCA

By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer In a legal effort to assert citizens constitutional rights against unlawful search and seizure, well-known Delmarva radio personality and Milton area resident, Jake Smith has filed a legal challenge against Delaware Animal Care and Control. The action centers around the organization’s recent impoundment of his Jack Russell Terrier mixed dog, “Millie” after incidents with neighbor’s dogs. On 7/5/2012 in the first incident, Millie was attacked by one neighbor’s Yorkshire Terrier. A separate incident occurred involving another neighbor’s Yorkshire Terrier on 3/16/2015 in which he paid her resulting veterinary and medical bills, according to Smith, who was interviewed by Dan Gaffney on WXDE 105.9 FM, yesterday morning Subsequently, animal control officers continually visited Smith’s neighbor (involved in the first incident) on numerous Read more

Learning and teaching the Constitution By Larry Mayo

Guest Post Back in a campaign some years ago, a young man handed me a pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution and a pamphlet with a well known (to some) story about his quest for re-election. In the story the constituent told Mr. Crocket that he either was incapable of understanding or hadn’t read that document that he swore an Oath to uphold and defend, so he could not cast a vote to re-elect him. The story may or may not be accurately told in the pamphlet, but it sparked something in me. It made me realize that this man, a farmer in the early 1800’s had a better understanding of that document than I did. I quickly realized that even though I had graduated from one of the highest rated schools in my state, with a B+ average, I hadn’t ever read that document in it’s entirety. So , I read it, in fact I read it several times. I realized that it was pretty easy to understand, since it Read more

The Corporate State and Administrative Regime

We ratified the United States Constitution this day in 1788. 226 years later, we are still governed by this beautiful expression of American self governance. Happy Constitution Day! Tim wrote a good post on the Constitution so I will not duplicate it. I would like to discuss the challenges to it. I think everyone recognizes that perpetual war is a constant challenge to civil liberty and the scope of government. Thanks to the global situation, this is a reality and we must guard ourselves against over reach in the name of national security. I will continue to advocate for civil liberty in time of war. What is often less though of on my side of the aisle is the rise of the corporate ownership of power and wealth. On the left, what is often not thought of is the rise of the Administrative bureaucracy supplanting elected officials. Over the coming months, I would like to challenge Read more

A Little Constitution Goes a Long Way

Time for Grand Jury Reform

They lost their minds in Austin. They indicted Governor Perry for exercising his legal and constitutional authority in an open and transparent fashion. They claimed he abused his power. Now that is not a criminal issue, that is a political issue taken care of by legislative overrides, court injunctions, elections, or in extreme cases impeachment. When you start to criminalize the political system, you become either third world or Italy. The people who did this need to be indicted for a misuse of the criminal justice system and false charges, better yet Perry should call a special session and the prosecutor should be put on impeachment charges. Perry had no personal benefit and was acting in what he believed was the public interest of not having a drunk who allegedly resisted arrest as head of a prosecutorial unit. I personally think arrest is not a conviction and people should have their Read more

Fedralist Paper 47 and the Importance of the Separation of Powers Within the Government

http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/fed47.asp In this Federalist Paper, Madison not only qualifies his reasoning for the importance of the separation of powers within government but compares the differences of this phenomenon within the thirteen original states, in the post revolution era. Madison contemplates the "particular structure of government and the distribution of this mass of power amoung its constituent parts." Madison writes: The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, selfappointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. He goes on to state that: In Delaware, the chief executive magistrate is annually elected by the legislative department. The speakers of the two legislative branches are vice-presidents in the executive department. Read more

What’s Wrong With Fast Track?

Don't fall over. I agree with Senator Harry Reid. Fast track authority for the Asian trade deals should not even come up for a vote. I favor free trade with Eastern Asian Nations. I oppose fast track authority. Congress is supposed to negotiate trade agreements not the President because unlike the other foreign policy issues, trade affects Americans directly. Our jobs, our prices, and more are related to International trade, which is why the founders did not put trade under Article 2 (Executive) but Article 1 (Congressional). Congress in its wisdom has delegated trade negotiations to the President's trade representative. That is their call. I would hire my own, but the executive has extensive dealings already with foreign countries so by one line of thinking, it makes sense. The otherside of the coin is that trade then becomes another foreign policy tradeoff, instead of having someone Read more

Thought of the Day 2/17

Why is the Constitution in such tatters? Our Constitution today seems to be in exile while the government gives lip service to it while ignoring its restraints. The responsible parties are the progressives. The progressives and liberals popularized a school of thought that has gained hold in many law schools. It is that the Constituition is a living document that changes meaning to fit the times. They claim that gives it life and vitality. In reality, they are slowly siphoning the life out of that Miracle from Philadelphia. The living document crowd can’t tell you what the Constitution says in context. They can only strip mine it to get to where they want to go. In their wake is gone all the beauty, life, and meaning and the only thing left is a gaping hole where your liberty used to reside.

Federal Judge Rules NSA’s Telephone Data Collection on Americans Illegal

In a landmark ruling, Appeals Court Judge Richard Leon ruled that President Barack Obama's surveillance policies, acted upon by the National Security Agency, ordering the mass collection of Americans' telephone data, "almost Orwellian" and likely a violation of the Constitution, according to Yahoo News reporter Oliver Knox. Surveillance programs have been under attack since their existence was revealed and the extent of their reach left many Americans horrified. The Judge dealt a blow to the governments contention that such surveillance is necessary to thwart future terrorist attacks. "Founding Father would likely be "aghast" at the NSA's activity, said Leon. "The government does not cite a single instance in which analysis of the NSA's bulk metadata collection actually stopped an imminent attack, or otherwise aided the Government in achieving any objective that was time-sensitive," Read more

From the Beginning, Political Strife Has Shaped the Republic

America's Birth although much romanticized by movies like "The Patriot" and others, was born out of the same political strife we see in our present day Republic. America's beginnings where famous orators and firebrands like Patrick Henry and great writers and intellects of political philosophy and thought, like Thomas Jefferson, James Madison,John Adams and many more, were on the verge of declaring the independence of a new nation, culminated with an explosion of new ideas. John Adams, the second president of the new republic, along with his new treasurer Alexander Hamilton were in conflict with Thomas Jefferson the Vice President and James Madison, who was very influential in the congress. John Adams and Alexander Hamilton favored a more British form of government and didn't think the New American Republic could survive the test of time. In other words they wanted more of a monarchy Read more

Wilmington’s Stop, Frisk and Imprison Law Unconstitutional?

A federal civil rights lawsuit filed Friday claims the City of Wilmington's policy of stopping people on city streets, frisking them and imprisoning them without probable cause is unconstitutional. To imprison someone without probable cause or arrest is a violation of false imprisonment and kidnapping laws. Although city officials are calling for stronger measures to enforce the laws in Wilmington, is this policy constitutional or legal? Is stopping people on city streets without probable cause and imprisoning them for a two-hour "investigatory period." even in the realm of legality? According to the NewsJournal, Kathleen MacRae, executive director of the Delaware American Civil Liberties Union said Friday that if Wilmington has engaged in that practice without probable cause to arrest the suspect, it is unconstitutional. "If this is a regular practice of the Wilmington Police Department, Read more
