News Briefs – Volume XXXI – Very UnCONSTITUTIONAL

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how Obama’s unconstitutional actions WILL affect your life

Brief 1:  One option that a president has to get some of his controversial nominees appointed is to wait for Congress to recess and then is able to appoint them to a limited term.  I remember celebrating W’s recess appointment of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador.  Obama stired controversy on recent recess appointments because Congress was not actually in recess.  The Supreme Court and settled law had determined that if Congress was not in session for three or more days then they were in recess.  Obama, with the backing of his Justice Department waited ONE DAY to claim a recess and appoint his henchmen.  Fortunately we have a strong Congress who cares about maintain the delicate balance of the three branches of government and will soon fix/find a way to reverse the appointments – – Oh wait we don’t have enough Congressmen with the guts to take on Obama.

News Briefs – Volume XXX Separation or Suppression

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how the progressive, secular left is waging war on religion allegedly in the name of tolerance.  The false claim of a constitutional provision requiring a “separation of church and state” has been liberally interpreted to attempt to remove any hint of religion from public places while the constitution actually states;

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

You decide whether the following briefs demonstrate a attempt to limit the free exercise of religion:

A P.C. War

Whether you want to call it a “war on terror” as George W. Bush would or an “overseas contingency operation” as our current president prefers, we are at war.  At least those who are waging battle against us are at war.  I am not sure that politicians in Washington are at war or that the general public quite feels the war.  This war almost came home to us again on Christmas Day with a Nigerian terrorist.
