Gay Man Being Deported Because Marriage Not Recognized

Cry me a River. First, we have to many “immigrants”, legal and illegal coming to this country. Here’s an idea: fix your own country, and stay there. We have enough problems in this country that we are dealing with.
From myfoxny.com:

Henry Velandia and Josh Vandiver married in Montville, Connecticut on August 29, 2010. Henry Velandia is in deportation proceedings because the Defense of Marriage Act prevents Josh Vandiver from sponsoring him for residency.

How much money are these proceedings costing tax payers?

Politics Over the Constitution; Bolton Blew It

Cross posted from The Mortgage Guy:

Arizona’s new law addressing illegal immigration, SB 1070, was partially struck down by a Clinton appointed justice, Susan Bolton.  Both common sense and a look at our Constitution support the idea that the decision was based on politics as opposed to precedent or the Constitution itself.

The LA Times writes: (emphasis is mine)

In her 36-page decision, Bolton wrote that the provisions would have inevitably “swept up” legal immigrants and were “preempted” by the federal government’s immigration authority.

Preemption has to be based on federal authority as it pertains to immigration.  Where does the federal government government get it’s authority from and what is it limited by? Specifically, the Constitution states in the tenth Amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The term immigration isn’t mentioned in the Constitution.  Thus it’s clear, the states never delegated the power to regulate it.  Some will argue however that under Article 1, Section 8, Congress was granted the right to regulate immigration because the states delegated the right to regulate naturalization.  This is the verbiage in the Constitution regarding naturalization:

To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

The U.S.  Citizenship and Immigration Service says this about “naturalization”:

Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines “naturalize” as follows:

1 : to confer the rights of a national on; especially : to admit to citizenship

Answers.com defines “immigrate” as follows:

To enter and settle in a country or region to which one is not native.

Clearly naturalization and immigration are two distinctly separate terms.  One refers to the movement of people and the other refers to the process of granting citizenship.   It’s also clear that Congress was delegated the power to regulate naturalization as it is clear it was never granted powers to regulate immigration.  Immigration and naturalization are related terms that have totally different meanings.  To “naturalize” is not synonymous with to “immigrate”.

Bolton’s argument that the Arizona law is unconstitutional based on “preemption” of Congress’ power to regulate immigration is fallacious.  This is because Congress was only granted the power to regulate “naturalization”.  The power to regulate immigration has always been within the purview of the states.  Furthermore, those powers have never been delegated to Congress; thus Congress lacks the power to regulate immigration as per it’s Tenth Amendment.

While this administration gives lip service to the Constitution, it continues it’s assault on it and the people governed by it’s principles and laws.  As usual with Obama and his minions, potential cheap votes and retaining power trump the Constitution, the best interests of the country and that of it’s citizens.  The only good news here is that there are only 14 weeks before we the people can do something substantial.  With all damage Obama is doing to this country at break neck speed, it is absolutely essential that he be stopped come this November.  Our collective futures depend on it.

Homeschoolers alarmed by Kagan nomination

This is a very revealing article about this particular nomination for SCOTUS. First there is this:
From World Net Daily;

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s press for considering international law as “the context” for interpreting U.S. law has incited worries her appointment could pave the way for world treaties that threaten both parental rights and homeschooling in the United States.
A statement from the Home School Legal Defense Association points to Kagan’s decision as dean of Harvard Law School to require first-year students to study international law:

“From the start, students should learn to locate what they are learning about public and private law in the United States within the context of a larger universe,” reads a letter from Kagan and Harvard’s Curricular Innovations Committee advocating the requirement. “Specifically, we recommend the development of three foundation courses … each of which represents a door into the global sphere that students will use as context for U.S. law.”

A larger universe! A larger universe! You have got to be kidding me, right? I’ll acknowledge a “larger universe” when the “universe” adopts the Constitution of these United States, Ms. Kagan. Then there is this:

Prof. Rabkin’s report also points out Kagan’s choice of Chief Justice Aharon Barak of the Israel Supreme Court as her “judicial hero,” calling him “the judge who has best advanced democracy, human rights, the rule of law and justice.”

“Justice Barak was certainly a jurist of remarkable confidence – he makes activist judges in America look timid by comparison,” objects Rabkin. “He was known for filling gaps by invoking standards from other countries – so much so that he made it a practice to hire at least one clerk each year from a foreign country (that is, a clerk whose legal training had been acquired in a foreign country rather than in Israel). … Senators should ask Elena Kagan, which practices of Chief Justice Barak does she think American judges would do well to emulate?”

Do you think any of our elected cockroaches on either side of the isle will ask that question? Will they have the guts to ask any tough question? I doubt it. And by the way, “human rights” are granted by governments, “unalienable” rights are granted by God. I would rather my rights come from the Creator, Ms. Kagan.

A Response to a Left wing Kool-Aide Drinker

This was my response to a post on gather

“Republican and conservative leaders and corporate interests created and deployed the strategy of attempting to intimidate members of congress by shouting in town hall meetings.”

You have actually bought into this nonsense? This is the PEOPLE standing up against big government, big debt and big taxes.

“Out of that impulse and bolstered by long-established overt racism in certain areas of the country and the visual distaste of seeing a person of color address a joint session of congress as President of the United States, Joe Wilson shouted out his now infamous invective.”

How do you get to assign motives of racism for Wilson shouting out LIAR, especially when it was proved that he was lying, in that bill illegal aliens would have received Health Care, not that they don’t already.

“This indicates to any objective observer that it is Limbaugh and Fox News who are leading the Republican party, setting the agenda and talking points, not the other way around.”

Ah, the Lefts hatred of any voice that disagrees with their own. Free Speech for all that agree with the commies because the  ends justifies the means. However, they are actually listening to the MAJORITY of Americans.

“It does have the affect of demonizing the duly elected government of the United States and convincing those people whose grasp of civics and government is less than stellar, that the Democratic leadership and the administration are doing something nefarious, which also is not true.”

Not listening to the MAJORITY of Americans who did NOT want THIS bill and using a parliamentary trick, in a way it was never intended, ask Bird who wrote the law, is unbelievably arrogant. It was President Obama , then Senator who said you can not get your agenda through and a 51 vote and be able to govern. We will see if he was right.

“It was Fox News (Republicans) who promoted and sometimes funded Tea Party gatherings. It was Republicans that were invited to speak at these events and allowed to spew their particular brand of racial hatred and intolerance to those people assembled there. It was at tea parties and other right-wing events where guns were very much in evidence, another attempt to threaten and intimidate the public and ramp up fears against the government.”

First, I did not know Fox News had a party? The bringing up of the talking point on the one event where someone carried a gun openly, where it was legal to do so, tips your hand that you are not informed, this is just talking points. If you where informed, you would have known that was a Black American so, I guess he was a racist and hates white people?

As to the Republicans speaking at some events, I watched them and know people that were there, there was nothing racial discussed. Unless, you are one of those Left wing socialist/marxists that believe that anyone who wishes to go back to following the TRUE INTENT of the Constitution and do not believe in “social justice” and that makes us racist? Yes, we do not believe in redistribution of wealth and neither did those who created the Constitution. Face it everything the Central Government does right now is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, except collecting income taxes thanks to the 16th amendment. Capitalism did not fail, we are not currently a capitalist nation. We have been a psuedo-socialist nation. The Judiciary has given the Government UNCONSTITUTIONAL powers that were NEVER intended by the people who wrote the Constitution. This is a good site to understand the commerce clause. The abuse of this clause has given the central government almost unlimited power. every single bureaucracy, welfare, social security, medicare, foreign aid, disater relief to the states, public works, etc are all unconstitutional because they did not amend the constitution. The founding fathers that created the Constitution was clear as to how the constitution could be changed for future needs, it was not through the judiciary, it was through the amendment process; which requires 3/4ths of the states and 2/3rds of congress. This can be best displayed by James Madison’s Veto of the Public works bill. James Madison is rightly considered the father of The Constitution and no, Jefferson did not write The Constitution, he was busy in France as our Ambassador. Many people from each state  of the Confederation debated for Months to come up with our Constitution, at the time our govt. was The Articles of Confederation.

I am tired of typing, can you see a pattern yet?

I know this author will not read the information presented or learn a dang thing, because he wants a country of “social justice” which is another name for communism and means we all get to suffer equally.

College professor spied for Cuba

From the BBC:

A Cuban-born university professor and his wife who pleaded guilty to spying for Cuba have been jailed in the US.

Carlos Alvarez, 61, and his 56-year-old wife, Elsa, received a five and three-year term respectively for exchanging coded messages with Cuba.

Both said they took responsibility for their actions but had wanted to establish an open dialogue with Cuba.

But a Miami district judge said that their behaviour had undermined US foreign policy towards the country.

“As we know, a good motive is never an excuse for criminal conduct,” Miami Judge Michael Moore said before he sentenced the couple.

The pair were accused of sending coded messages about fellow Cuban-American exiles living in Miami back to Cuba.

Carlos Alvarez was accused of being in contact with Cuban intelligence agencies since 1977.

They claim that there was no secret information shared with Cuba, but as the U.S. attorney points out they went through great lengths to hide their identity and used codded messages. That really doe not sound like idle chit-chat to me.

Al Gore May Receive Honorary Doctorate In Climatology

It is a love fest…

From All Headline News:

Former Vice President and current environmental activist Al Gore is under consideration to receive an honorary degree from the University of Minnesota for his work in climatology.

Gore has recently garnered worldwide attention for his Academy Award nominated global warming documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” as well as his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work combating global climate change.

I wonder if he will get a music award for his up and coming concert tour for global warming?

“He’s in the news and is a legitimate expert on a pressing issue of global concern, climate change, so this level of interest is understandable,” Wolter said. “However, no plans have been set and it’s unlikely that would occur this spring.”

Legitimate expert?? Well, I guess he is a qualified as Dr. Heidi Kullen. :wink_ee:
