Why There is So Little Respect for the Law

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

Reports about the Bundy ranch in Nevada brought forth much commentary in the news media. Criticism of Bundy came from both sides of the political spectrum. The chief criticism is that Bundy should obey the law, and the law should be enforced. We are, after all, a nation of laws.

Aren’t we?

Not quite.

Can we really be a nation of laws when:

1)     nobody adequately understands what the law is.

2)      laws are passed that no one who voted for them has ever even read, much less understood.

3)      the government itself violates its own laws with impunity.

4)      the president continually and unilaterally changes the law for personal political cover.

1.  Nobody knows what the law actually is. Judges all the way from the bottom to the top disagree with each other. Supreme Court decisions are many times split five to four on important cases. This violates the most fundamental principle of good governance, which is that laws should be understood by the ordinary citizen. Court decisions should not be lotteries. They should be predictable, merely the fine tuning of details, not massive overhauls. Courts should apply the law to specific cases, not make laws, nor interpret them in ways that were clearly never intended by the legislature. Laws passed by popular referendum should be respected by the courts, and never overturned unless there is some extraordinary necessity for doing so. Judges should base their decisions on what the actual law is, not on their personal opinions of what the law should be.

2.  Legislators vote on laws without ever having read what they are voting on. The most egregious recent example of this is the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obama-care. Not one—repeat, not even one—of the legislators who voted for this law ever even read it. Not one. Congressmen John Conyers publicly ridiculed those who demanded that Congress should actually know what it is doing, by saying, quote:

I love these members that get up and say, Read the bill! Well, what good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you’ve read the bill?

Such outrages by the legislature are a slap in the face to the American people, and a blatant disregard of what representative government means. This dereliction of even the most basic duty of the legislature is so extreme as to defy description. It gets worse. Many members of Congress cannot answer simple, direct questions about what the Constitution says. Congressman John Conyers told a reporter that the “good and welfare clause” gives Congress the authority to force individuals to buy health insurance. There is no such clause. There is a general welfare clause, but it does not erase the rest of the Constitution. Other congressmen are quoted as saying such things as, most of what we do around here is unconstitutional, and, if I voted only for laws that are permitted by the Constitution, I would not get reelected.

In other words, we are no longer a republic.

3.  The government itself violates its own laws with impunity. One of the most obvious violations of constitutional representation is the fact that laws passed by the Congress routinely exempt the members of Congress from the burdens imposed by the laws they inflict upon us. It is inconceivable that the American people tolerate this, but too many of us do. Many more examples exist. The Tenth Amendment is perhaps the one part of the Constitution that is so frequently violated that in effect it has died of neglect.

Operation Fast and Furious is another example. The Department of Justice had been proclaiming that much of the gun violence in Mexico was due to weapons smuggled from the US. When this proved not to be the case, the DOJ itself began smuggling weapons into Mexico, so that they could point to them as demonstrating the need for violating the Second Amendment guarantee that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Hundreds of Mexicans died as a result, along with at least one American Border Patrol agent. The DOJ has defied all subpoenas to release its documentation of this illegal operation.

4.  The president continually and unilaterally changes the law for personal political cover. Again, the Affordable Care Act provides the most glaring examples. This law was so poorly-crafted that it is unworkable. The constitutional remedy for this is clear. Congress must change the law. Instead, Barack Obama repeatedly ignored or overrode vital components of the law to avoid the inevitable embarrassment of its failure. Barack Obama is not the legislature. He has no legal basis for violating the separation of powers, despite his flimsy excuses for doing so.

Cliven Bundy may or may not be in violation of one or more of the encyclopedic laws and regulations that were passed with no one ever having read or understood them. The laws which he is accused of violating may or may not be just and fair. It is clear, however, that the use of armed force, with the open threat of lethal violence, to seize his property, is the inevitable consequence of a government that increasingly seems to recognize no limits on its own authority. It was done on a pretext, probably involving official corruption by Nevada senator Harry Reid. We may never know the full story, because it seems that so much of what government does is illegally concealed from the public.

We are no longer a nation of laws. We are not supposed to be ruled by overlords, but rather, we are supposed to govern ourselves. That principle has been completely forgotten by those who are now in power. We are no longer ruled by law, but instead by an elite class of oligarchs. Not until we the people take back the power and authority that under the Constitution are rightfully ours will the law once again be respected.

Barack Obama’s Pen and Phone Tyranny

by Jim Mullen, Contributing Writer

Barack Hussein Obama’s miraculous ascension to the presidency was the greatest marketing ploy ever conceived and implemented.  Mainstream media, Hollywood, and leftist intelligentsia conspired to hoist a community organizer with no experience in business, very few life skills, and insignificant qualifications, to the most powerful position on earth.

Careful manipulation and control by leftists and MS media was clear even in the primary election. Anyone using Obama’s full name was immediately pounced upon and called racist, Islamophobic, and anti-American. Their parameters were unmistakable and presented with an unambiguous warning that using Obama’s middle name would be a declaration of war. Media manipulation and control were unprecedented.

Leading the free world wasn’t even an afterthought to media or to the ill-informed, government indoctrinated electorate that voted for this highly skilled actor. Although he delivered his writers’ leftist ideological script with mastery, he was decidedly unskilled in every other requirement for leading America into the future and preserving liberty for its people.

Additionally, to anyone who listened to his speeches or read his writings, it was painfully clear that he was a disciple of redistribution and was, likewise, vehemently anti-Capitalist. He went well beyond anything even seen in American politics with an unwavering drumbeat of class warfare and race hustling. His “Fundamental Transformation of America” speech left no doubt about his aspirations to destroy American culture, exceptionalism, and constitutional authority.

In Barack Obama’s pen and phone tyranny bone-chilling interview, Obama said the Constitution was a “charter of negative liberties,” full of constraints imposed upon us by our Founding Fathers. He often proclaimed he was a constitutional scholar, but his studies were like a military leader probing for weaknesses. It was preparation for an anticipated assault on the Constitution and laws of our land. The assault continues at full bore using every federal bureau, bureaucracy, and court to attack American citizenry.

Unfortunately, Obama feels uninhibited by law or constitutional authority, and declared de facto, unconditional war on this constitutional Republic.

 As much as Obama has irreparably harmed our country, and the damage is immense; the greatest destruction was moving Americans from the “working with pride” side of society to government dependency. It’s unquestionably clear that addiction was Obama’s first step in breaking America’s spirit. Tyranny in the name of Social Justice or redistribution is no less tyranny.

Could anyone ever dream of a United States President traveling abroad, bowing down, and apologizing to America’s enemies, then subsequently, launching unbelievable insults to staunch friends around the globe? Could we imagine a President’s daily hammering of American freedom here at home while surrounding the presidency with every conceivable Marxist, socialist, and leftwing radical possible to help him rule like an oppressive despot, with his “pen and phone?”

Strange Bedfellows – Vladimir Putin and the American Right

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

Sometimes, politics and policy require uncomfortable alliances. Perhaps the best example from recent history is the close cooperation between the western allies and the Soviet Union in the war against Hitler. Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill certainly knew that their Soviet partner, Josef Stalin, was no real friend. He was always poised to stab in the back anyone who let down his guard. The alliance was necessary, however, because without the millions of Soviet soldiers fighting the Nazis, Hitler’s Germany would have been vastly more deadly to the British and Americans defending against it.

Today, another Stalin-esque dictator leads Russia. His name is Vladimir Putin, and it seems obvious that his intention is to restore the empire that once was the Soviet Union. For years, he has carefully put in place the elements of his plan: securing a naval port in Syria, and playing the US off against Iran, while parading the Obama administration about by the nose. Just as Hitler persuaded Chamberlain that Germany’s seizing of territory was in the interest of “peace in our time,” so also Putin has seized Crimea while Obama looks on in confusion and helplessness, trying in vain to find where Hillary put that “reset button.”

In the midst of all this, Putin seems to have become somewhat of a folk hero on the American right, the strangest of strange bedfellows.

He has done so in the way that Jesse James and other infamous outlaws gained secret admiration by members of the public. No decent person in his right mind would admire a thief and cold blooded killer. Nor, indeed, was it the criminality that people admired. In order to make a hero of Jesse James, a false image of him was crafted in dime novels. He became seen as a courageous victim of the evil railroad empires and fighting back in the tradition of Robin Hood. Once that image took hold, and the murders of innocent people overlooked, then the false image of Jesse James became an icon of American culture.

Likewise, Putin is a cold blooded killer, one who rose to the top from a cadre of KGB agents known for their ruthlessness and cunning. It is not these characteristics, however, that the American right has come to admire. In order to make him more admirable, Putin needs a villain, a “railroad empire” that is victimizing innocent Americans.

Along comes Barack Obama, violator of the Constitution, liar of the year, and betrayer of Benghazi, among other wickedness. Unlike Putin, who has not invaded Nevada, Obama is an up close and personal villain. His crimes threaten us all. We could well lose our freedoms because of him and his ilk.

Americans hate a villain, but if there is one thing we hate worse, it is cowardice. It is in this regard that Putin seems strangely preferable to Obama. This cowardly American is always whining that his problems are Bush’s fault. He is always promising to “get to the bottom of” a series of scandals, after which he makes lame excuses or implausible denials, mainly because the foundation of these scandals lie in his own corruption and incompetence. He is constantly warning America’s enemies that “there will be consequences,” when such threats are obviously meaningless, and indeed, the consequences never occur. The global laughter is barely concealed; not even our allies trust this empty shirt.

Putin, by contrast, is quiet. As Teddy Roosevelt might have described him, he speaks softly but carries a big stick. The image of Putin is that of a man who does not make threats, but does carry them out. We have not heard him blame his predecessors for his difficulties. We have not heard him make vain promises to resolve scandals. We have not heard him bluster and threaten, but only seen him act boldly and with resolve.

No, Putin is not a hero, not by any means. Indeed, our disdain for Obama is that he incorporates all of Putin’s flaws with none of his strengths. Obama is a Putin wannabe, but one who can never “make the trains run on time,” one whose policies continually make matters worse, while he denies this obvious fact.

Obama is why American militiamen confronted the armed thugs from the Bureau of Land Management, when the government tried to enforce an unjust law against rancher Cliven Bundy.

Message to Putin:  We applaud the way you rub Obama’s nose in his own messes, not because we admire you, but because you illuminate the fact that Obama is a dire failure who needs to be opposed and replaced with a conservative, pro-American leader. Obama will not prevent you from invading Ukraine, but if you ever decide to invade Nevada, we will introduce you to the Second Amendment.

Force and Power

by Robert Arvay, Contributing Writer

The standoff in Nevada between the federal government and supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy is not about cattle. It is about freedom, but more than that, it is about force and power.

I grew up in an era when force and power were in the hands of the good guys – and we were the good guys.

We, the good guys, won wars against bad guys. Murderers were put to death, not made into celebrities. Marriage was the norm. Children grew up in two-parent families. Freedom of speech did not mean getting shouted down.

Although we were the good guys, we were not the perfect guys. We had our flaws, some of them serious, but the direction of society was toward improvement.

That has changed. Power now rests in the hands of the bad guys, and the bad guys are willing to use force to get what they want. The direction of society is now toward tyranny.

What do the bad guys want?

They are socialist authoritarians who plan to implement ultra-liberal policies. They envision a society where everything is either mandatory or forbidden. Freedom, liberty and individualism are anathema to their goals. They view the traditions of marriage and family as impediments to their utopian ideas. They have no tolerance for any expressions of thought with which they do not fully agree. They believe that there are too many humans on the planet, that humans are a pollutant which must be reduced. Those few humans who are allowed to remain alive must obey the dictates of the new world order. That world order will be rigidly structured. Its subjects (there will be no citizens) will live where they are told to live, eat what they are told to eat, and work for “the greater good.” The greater good will be defined by those at the top of the social pyramid. Whatever benefits the elites will be required; whatever they dislike will be forbidden.

All information will be controlled by a minister of propaganda. Entertainment will be carefully designed to promote the interests of the elites. The servant class will be educated to accept the authority of the elites. Any humans in excess of the needs of the elites will be eliminated.

It is useless to warn people that this is the plan. Few will believe it. Those who do believe it, or those who simply suspect the motives and competence of the elites, will be ridiculed, marginalized and where necessary, silenced by intimidation, threats, or actual violence, to include lethal violence.

For their plan to work, the elites must gain sufficient power, and they must exercise overwhelming force.

It has happened before. History is replete with examples, from the ancient kingdoms to the modern tyrannies. Always before, the limits of power have reduced the capacity of the authoritarians to fully implement their goals. Always before, the empires have decayed and fallen. Now, however, the limits on power are less than ever before in history.

Power is now mostly in the hands of the elites, and that power is increasing. Nothing c
an stop them – except for the one power that has always stopped them before.

A popular uprising is the only antidote to tyranny. Pray that it comes not too late.
