Her Own Gavel

America's Dirty Little Border Secret - Rape Trees

Here is a disturbing video. For this reason alone Obama, if he truly cared about humanity, should have long ago secured the border. One Hundred thousand 7-12 year old children brought into America every year as sex slaves! Seventy percent of women and female children raped while crossing the border! What sort of sick land has America's leaders turned our Republic into that her people can ignore such heinous crimes to continue? If our borders were secure this would not be happening here, not in our Republic. Those who do not oppose amnesty and open borders share guilt in the enslavement and rape of countless women and children.

Sharron Angle For US Senate Website Is Live

Sharron Angle, a true Conservative, running for US Senate in Nevada now has her website live. Visit and learn more about her stands and how you can help her defeat Harry Reid. If I say so myself, I think the website was very nicely done. Sharron's fund raising goal is $1.5 million, of which she has raised $1,383,726. Let's do what we can to get Reid out of a seat he does not deserve.

Pence: "Surrender is a Military Tactic. I Just Oppose It"

Military spending bill should be about military spending and nothing else. Our soldiers deserve better.

Washington, DC - U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, delivered the following remarks on the House floor today in opposition to the Supplemental Appropriation Act of 2010:


“I rise in opposition to the amendment and also to the underlying bill. I have
great respect for the gentle lady who brings this amendment. She said earlier
that there is, in her way of thinking, ‘no military solution in Afghanistan.’
But let me say that surrender is a military tactic. I just oppose it.

“This is a very serious time in the life of our country here at home.
It's easy, I suspect, for some Americans to forget that we're a nation at war.
But we are.

“As I was reminded when I traveled to Afghanistan the day
after Christmas this last year, at this very hour, we have men and women in
uniform in harm's way in Afghanistan and Iraq. We owe them, in this moment, the
resources they need to complete their mission, get the job done, and come home
safely. We also owe them the respect of doing that without using our soldiers as
a vehicle for other domestic spending priorities.

“Military spending
bills should be about military spending and nothing else. This legislation fails
that test.

“Before us today is a $75 billion spending bill. But less
than half of this legislation will be used to support the Defense Department's
war operations. Less than half. The military funding measure will spend almost
$5 billion, supposedly on a temporary bailout for Federal Pell Grant programs.
This so-called military funding measure will spend $50 million on the Port of
Guam and $18 million for emergency re-forestation and $15 million for a highway
safety study. This military funding measure will also even spend, as we've heard
in earlier debate, $10 billion on teacher jobs.

“Now, I have been
married, as of a month ago, for 25 years to a teacher. I support teachers. I
believe education is a state and local function. But anyone else remember that
we just spent $53 billion in a supposedly one-time spending for education in the
president's failed stimulus bill?

“And now, on the backs of our
soldiers, comes another $10 billion that has to be appropriated to save
teachers' jobs. We can do better, men and women. To top it all off, $63 billion
isn't even paid for. Just more deficits and more debt. One of the ways the
Democrats are saving a little money here is by $3 billion in cuts to the Defense
Department.

“We can do better. Our soldiers deserve better. Let's reject
this legislation. Let’s do right by our soldiers, Military spending bill should
be about military spending and nothing else.”

No Budget, No Solutions

Republicans Putting On A Show In Kagan Hearings?

Is it possible that Republicans are putting on a show for their constituents in the Kagan hearings. I think it likely. I am not saying all are guilty, we still have our true Conservatives who are standing firm against her and her confirmation. However, there are the RINO traitors who will undoubtedly back stab the Party.

Sen. Lindsey Graham has suggested that he may support her nomination and even told her it was OK as an advocate to have an agenda and that it was disturbing that she said she did not have an agenda. Where do these freakish politicians come from that they believe they can make things up as they go along and completely throw out the Constitution?

I know this, they are a product of the people not holding them accountable. This is what we must do consistently from here on out without exception. That is what our vote is about, keeping our government restrained and getting rid of bad apples; people have just lost touch with their duty and our government has grown out of control because of it. Take the time to research the candidates and for goodness sake take the time to vote.

Anyone who does not viamently oppose Kagan's confirmation does not deserve their seat and must lose it. We have to send a message DC cannot ignore; wearing the mask without walking the walk will not be tolerated anymore.

Pence Opposes Democrats' Latest Wall Street Bailout Bill

“Under the guise of financial reform, Democrats are pushing yet another bill that will kill jobs, raise taxes and make bailouts permanent.”

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, delivered the following remarks today on the House floor in opposition to the Democrats’ financial regulatory reform measure:

“Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to the Conference Report
for H.R. 4173; the so-called Restoring American Financial Stability Act.

“We're used to creative titles around here. But I’ve got to tell you,
during a time of extraordinary economic duress, millions of Americans
unemployed, and failed economic policies, it is darkly ironic that a bill that
will do anything but restore financial stability is named for that purpose.

“The truth of the matter is, when you look at this legislation, it's
proof positive again that this majority just doesn't get it. The American people
are not looking at Washington, D.C. and clamoring for more spending, more taxes,
and more bailouts. They're looking at Washington, D.C. and saying, ‘When are you
going to focus on creating jobs? When are you going to set partisan differences
aside, power grabs and big government agendas aside to do something to put
Americans back to work?’

“Under the guise of financial reform, Democrats
are pushing yet another bill that will kill jobs, raise taxes and make bailouts
permanent. Let me say that again: This legislation will kill jobs by restricting
access to credit. It will kill jobs by raising taxes on those that would provide
loans and opportunities to small business owners and family farmers. And it
makes the bad ideas of the Wall Street bailout permanent.

“Free market
economics depends on the careful application of a set of ideals, traditional
American ideals and principles. Chief among them is the notion that the freedom
to succeed must include the freedom to fail. Personal responsibility is at the
very center of the American experiment from an economic standpoint. It is that
center from which we have become not only the freest but the most prosperous
nation in the history of the world.

“As my colleagues on the other side
of the aisle know, I vigorously opposed the Wall Street bailout because I
thought it departed from that fundamental principle of personal responsibility
and limited government. And I rise today to vigorously oppose this legislation
that takes the bad ideas of the Wall Street bailout and makes them permanent.

“This legislation codifies the notion of too big to fail; a policy and
an approach that the American people have roundly rejected. It will give
government bureaucrats more power to pick winners and losers. When a financial
firm is failing, the Treasury Secretary and the FDIC will actually have the
authority to take taxpayer dollars and decide which creditors to pay back, and
how and when they get paid.

“The American people don't want Washington,
D.C. in that business. They want a refereed private sector that says ‘yes’ to
traditional bankruptcy and ‘no’ to bailouts; that says we’re here to protect
taxpayers and not Wall Street. This bill fails in that regard. I urge it be
rejected and let’s start over with legislation that’s built on American
ideas.”

STRATFOR Video Dispatch: A More Powerful EU Presidency?

Rep. Mike Pence: Mr. Speaker, You Can't Deem a Budget That You Never Passed



“Federal spending is out of control and the American people know it. A $13 trillion dollar national debt. A $1.4 trillion deficit this year. An 84 percent increase in non-defense discretionary spending since this administration took office. The Democrat majority's answers so far this year? No budget.

“Their answer to this extraordinary fiscal crisis by refusing to lead is unacceptable. After a year of avoiding hard choices, now we hear the latest Democratic plan is actually to bring a budget resolution to the floor in some procedural motion known as deeming.

“Well, Mr. Speaker, you can't deem a budget that you never passed. The American people long for leadership in Washington, D.C. that's willing to sit down across party line and face the fiscal and economic crises of this country head-on with hard choices.

“We can't get this economy moving again until we get Washington, D.C., under control. I urge my colleagues: reject this phony baloney deeming of the budget. Let's sit down, let’s face our fiscal crisis head-on, give the American people the kind of leadership they want and deserve.”

Catholic League News Release

CATHOLIC DAUGHTERS OF AMERICA CONTACTED;
MOTHER TERESA CAMPAIGN CONTINUES


Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Day 35 of the protest campaign on behalf of Mother Teresa:

Today I am writing to the Catholic Daughters of America in the New York Tri-State area informing them of our protest demonstration on August 26 outside the Empire State Building on 34th Street and 5th Avenue.

The rally is being held to protest the decision by Anthony Malkin, the owner of the storied building, to deny a tribute to Mother Teresa: our request to have the towers shine blue and white, the colors of her congregation, on August 26th, the 100th anniversary of her birthday, was originally denied without explanation, and was later denied on appeal by invoking a "policy" that prohibits honoring religious individuals or institutions. If this were in fact true, then (a) they would have said so from the beginning (instead they told me the application looked fine), and (b) they would not have honored Cardinal O'Connor when he died; Pope John Paul II when he died; the Salvation Army; and Rev. Martin Luther King.

Yet the same persons who chose to stiff Mother Teresa decided to honor the Chinese Communist revolution last year, even though 77 million innocent men, women and children were murdered under Mao Zedong. By contrast, the U.S. Postal Service is honoring Mother Teresa with a commemorative stamp.

Everyone is being asked to pass the word about our demonstration and to join us on August 26. They are also being asked to write to Anthony Malkin. His address is Malkin Properties, One Grand Central Place 60, E. 42nd St., NY, NY 10165.

If You Want Someone To Tell You How To Live Your Life Move Back With Mommy And Daddy

I have decided that the socialists and progressives who look for government to tell them how to live their lives are just trying to replace mommy and daddy with the government. They have simply not cut the cord. Instead of admitting this fact and coming to the conclusion that they should never have moved out of mommy and daddy's home where they were taken care of and had someone to tell them how to live their lives they are trying to turn the whole Republic into some twisted version of the liberal, stifling home life they grew up in. Well, I say go back to mommy and daddy where you feel safe and leave my Republic to the adults who have cut the cord and don't need anyone to tell them what to do.

Altering The Findings Of An Expert Panel Is Lying - This Is What Elena Kagan Did

When Elena Kagan altered the truth by purposely changing the findings of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists that it is never medically necessary to stab scissors into the brain of a baby being born to save the mother's life. Common sense tells anyone that at that point the baby is already born and the mother still alive, therefore killing the baby does not save the mother since she endures the entire birthing process.

Elena Kagan being willing to twist the words of an expert panel to say what she wants it to is beyond a breech of ethics, in my opinion it appears to be criminal. She is not eligible for consideration to serve on the Supreme Court by that act alone. To serve on the Supreme Court a justice must have integrity and ethical principles, which she has proven she does not.

Don't Be Fooled - Gov. Christie Is A Republican, Not A Conservative - UPDATED

Despite warnings that Chris Christie was a RINO, Republicans such as Sean Hannity promoted Christie against the true conservative candidate Steve Lonegan. Conservatives have been trying separate themselves from RINO's in the Party who have become camouflage experts, disguising themselves as and infiltrating the right and for too long they gotten away with it.

Gov. Chris Christie has been very calculating in the order of issues he is tackling. He has come out strong on fiscal issues important to Conservatives and he has won them over. Only hinting at issues important to Democrats he has managed to keep the Conservative eye on a political carrot long enough to lull them into a false sense of security to the point that some are calling for him to run as president.

Feeling safe himself, he has let glimpses of his liberal side out. Encouraging Obama to press for amnesty and teachers union reforms he revealed his allegiance to extreme Left issues. The millions of illegals living in our Republic are a financial drain on every state's economy and anyone serious about restoring fiscal sanity in their states cannot continue to support open borders and amnesty.

For now he chooses to keep his focus on conservatively fiscal issues and encourages Republicans to do the same. Don't let Gov. Christie or the RINO's in charge fool you. They are still Democrats in sheep's clothing. Many extreme Left groups do just enough good to keep the dogs off their heels, but they are still progressives.

These Democrats-at-heart will back stab you over social issues in a heartbeat. While somewhat better than an outright progressive, they are still the political enemy that must be removed from their seats.

UDPATE:

Gov. Chris Christie's own words on amnesty:

Christie said more resources -- specifically, "money" -- were needed to support federal law enforcement and border security, along with "having a clear understandable law that people can follow."

We already have clear, understandable laws concerning illegal immigration; once they crossed the border the illegal alien has broken those laws, which is why they are ILLEGAL aliens, they chose not to follow them and our government chooses not to enforce them. If the feds would enforce the immigration laws we have we would not need amnesty.

Senators, Run Elena Kagan Out Of DC

So many are predicting that Elena Kagan will be confirmed with no filibuster from the Republicans. What? This extreme progressive has no business even being considered for the Supreme Court, let alone have a chance at being confirmed. Kind of like Obama had no business ever being elected president. It just goes to confirm the adage of rotten fruit begets rotten fruit.

I will say this, however, any Republican who does not fight her confirmation tooth-and-nail should go down in political flames this November and in 2012. We should all make their names publicly notorious and put them out in the political dog house. If they do not do their duty and represent their constituents then they do not deserve their seats and that is how we must vote every time from now on.

Senators should have bend over backwards to earn and keep our votes and when they make the mistake of thinking that they can make political moves based on their own political gain then they are no longer fulfilling their duty as the voice of their state. We have all lost our intended political philosophy that includes the fact that senators are servants of their state and not self anointed royalty.

Elena Kagan, with her socialist, big government phylisophy, will only continue to strip the states of their authority while on the bench. It is a Senator's job to not only protect his state's authority, but to vigourously defend it. Elena Kagan is not fit to serve on the Supreme Court. Her unAmerican beliefs that the government not only has the right, but has the duty to restrain and strip entire groups of society of their God given rights invalidates her from consideration.

Obama choosing her is not a surprise considering her anti-family, anti-Christian, anti-Conservative agendas; what is a surprise is that any Republican, or Democrat, would confirm her appointment, or even simply allow her confirmation, in the current political landscape and ensure the end of their political career.

A Flag For The Fourth Of July

With the Fourth of July approaching fast I have been thinking about getting a flag out front to display where my loyalties lie. Being stuck in the North puts a limit on what I can get away with ;-), but I know that I will not be flying the Federal flag. The older I get and the more I learn the more determined I become to put the fed back in their Constitutionally limited role.

For now, I have decided to continue to fly my Bonnie Blue for states rights. This appropriately shows my belief that the power rightfully belongs to the states and not the feds, that your state is where you allegiance belongs and not to a central government that cannot fulfill one of their biggest, and very few, Constitutional duties; to protect our borders and our land.

We are also considering flying the "Tea Party" flag; being the Gadsden flag on a black background. Talk about a flag full of meaning. At first I was a little resistant, but have since seen the flag flown many places including on vehicles around Green Bay. It may go up on my front porch shortly.

New Study Denying Fetal Pain Lacks Scientific Basis Pro-Life Groups Say

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A new study from members of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists lacks a strong scientific basis and ignores the evidence supplies in several previous studies supplied by leading researchers in the field, say pro-life groups who are criticizing the new report.

Ghostly Encounter


The surface of Saturn's moon Dione is rendered in crisp detail against a hazy, ghostly Titan. Visible in this image are hints of atmospheric banding around Titan's north pole.

The image was taken in visible blue light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on April 10, 2010. The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.8 million kilometers (1.1 million miles) from Dione and 2.7 million kilometers (1.7 million miles) from Titan. Scale in the original image was 11 kilometers (7 miles) per pixel on Dione and 16 kilometers (10 miles) on Titan. The image has been magnified by a factor of 1.5 and contrast-enhanced to aid visibility.

Prayers Answered

We had our doctor appointment for the baby today and it looks like God has answered quite a few prayers. The hole in baby's heart is gone and the doctor is no longer concerned with the heart. Baby's left kidney is no longer enlarged. Best case scenario, it could be partially functional, or shrivel up and die, and worst case they would need to remove it after birth.

Because we missed the timeline for the Downs testing we will have to wait for birth on that. This is, by far, the best we could hope for at this point. I want to thank every one who has been praying as I claim this as answer to those prayers. God is great. Deo Vindice.

It's Monday

Sorry for the light posting over the weekend, we were extremely busy. Here are a couple of the headlines until I can get more up.

First off, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gun rights again. The Left will now feverishly have to pass a new gun law in their attempt to not follow the court's latest ruling. I amazes me that when the court rules you have the right to kill you own unborn children, the left can't wait to support them, but when the court actually supports the Constitution the Left does everything in their power to not follow the ruling.

Senator Byrd passed away, the Democrat governor will pick a replacement, who will not be up for election until 2012.

This is a though provoking piece on the police state we are becoming. We should all ask ourselves if we are willing to live under a police state.

GE's CEO collapsed in front of Vice President Biden, avoiding the obvious joke that Biden sucked all the air out of the room I would like to ask why was the Secret Service's response so slow? This reminds me of when the Iraqi threw his shoes at Bush. I think it is fair to ask, has the Secret Service, in an attempt to give politicians their space, positioned themselves too far back? I want all our politicians extremely healthy so we can vote them out of office this November and in 2012.

Eric Erickson throws his support behind Christine O'Donnell. He seems to be pessimistic on her chance to win, however I feel Obama has been a game changer and I wouldn't be surprised if she did win.
