The Debate Question that Will Never Be Asked

In tonight’s VP debate, what is the top question that should be asked that no one has the gall to?  I believe the question would be this:

“Senator Bidden, you have taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution.  You voted for the $700B and the later $850B bailout of Wall Street.  Please site the authority under the Constitution that Congress is using to justify this bailout.”

Or:
“Governor Palin, your running mate, Senator McCain has taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution.  He voted for the $700B and the later $850B bailout of Wall Street.  Please site the authority under the Constitution that Congress is using to justify this bailout.”

McCain Urges Treasury to Act Without Legislation on Bailout

Republican Presidential candidate John McCain “Speaking on morning television, the Arizonan urges the Treasury Department to address the economic crisis on its own by buying $1 trillion in mortgages and tapping its exchange stabilization fund. Also backs raising the FDIC insurance cap to $250,000.”

So, in other words, Congress failed to pass an unconstitutional bill.  So, the Republican candidate for President wants the Executive Department to act anyways; he wants them to do something that they have no authority to do.  So much for the Constitution.  And this is who “Conservatives” want for President?  I chose Door # 3; Chuck Baldwin for President!

Update on "One Angry Democrat"

In February of 2007, I wrote about a conversation that I had with “One Angry Democrat“. I went over to her house again today. Surprise, surprise, she is voting for John McCain. She doesn’t trust Barack Obama. Of course, I told her that I am supporting Chuck Baldwin, because he is actually planning on following the Constitution. She told me that she is a “Liberal Democrat”, just not as liberal of Senator Obama. I told her, as I’ve told you guys before, that I believe that politically, Senators McCain and Clinton are nearly identical, which is why so many Hillary supports (like this lady) is planning on supporting Senator McCain. It is said, though, that the Republican presidential candidate is as liberal as a Clinton.

John McCain's campaign suspension

Its all over the news today, Republican Presidential candidate John McCain has suspended his presidential campaign.  This means no TV ads, no fundraising, no campaign appearances and no debates.  He has headed back to Washington, DC to work on the “urgent” economic issues at hand.  Afterwards, he plans on resuming his campaign.  I was listening to KXNT’s Casey Hendrickson Show tonight and he and Heather were asking everyone if they thought Senator McCain had done this “for political gain” or “to put America first”.  I think the question is missing the real reason.  The Puppet-Masters have decided that this bill isn’t going anywhere fast.  Americans have started asking questions.  Recent polls are saying that most Americans are against the government bailout.  Yet, the Senate is pushing forward.  Now today, one of the puppets running for the Presidency announces that he will “suspend” his campaign until the crisis is over.   And what happens?  Americans have stopped talking about if the government should pass an unconstitutional bailout or not.  Now they are talking about if John McCain did this for political gain or not.  The entire conversation has changed.  And the Puppet-Masters are free to continue their push for socialism… and worse.

Can Two Walk Together Without Agreement?

Can Two Walk Together Without Agreement?
by Chuck Baldwin
September 3, 2008

John McCain’s selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate was exactly what he needed to do to make himself competitive against Barack Obama in the November elections. (For the record, I predicted three weeks ago that Palin would be his choice.) As a result (and right on cue), conservatives throughout the country–especially Christian conservatives–are now fully supporting McCain’s candidacy for President. Even James “I-will-never-vote-for-John-McCain” Dobson has endorsed McCain.

By all appearances, Governor Palin is a true conservative. She is pro-life. She is pro-Second Amendment. Alaska is one of only two states (Vermont is the other) that recognize the right of their citizens to carry handguns without a Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) permit. She was rightly critical of the invasion of Iraq, once calling it a “war for oil.” Speaking of oil, she believes we should drill for oil in Alaska and throughout the U.S., and is critical of the federal government for allowing America to become dependent upon foreign oil for our energy needs. She even heaped praises upon the Republican that Republicans love to hate: Ron Paul. Beyond that, Lynette Clark, the chairman of the Alaskan Independence Party (the party under which yours truly is on the Presidential ballot this year) reports that Sarah Palin was a member of the party back in the early 90s. This is very encouraging in that the AIP is a patriotic, states’ rights party that holds strong sentiments opposing the New World Order propensities of the two major parties. In essence, Sarah Palin is everything that John McCain isn’t. Which leads to the question that was asked long ago by the Hebrew prophet: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

GOP Convention Roll Call Vote

I watched the Republican National Convention Roll Call Vote tonight on Dish Network’s RNC08 channel.

A couple of notes: 28 States/Territories passed on the first round of voting.

The final count: Mitt Romney: 2 (2nd Round: 2 from Utah)
Ron Paul: 15 | announced 5 (First round: 5 from Alaska [updated, originally, I had put “a state (I didn’t write down with one)”] / 2nd round: 4 from Oregon, 4 from Washington, and 2 from West Virginia
John McCain: 2343| announced 2372

Other interesting notes

In the 2nd round of voting, Tennessee had all votes for “George S. McCain”.

In the 2nd round of voting, West Virginia had 28 votes for McCain and 2 votes for Ron Paul, yet when the floor counters announced the vote of the West Virginia delegates, they announced 30 votes for John McCain.

If I were Nancy Pelosi…

If I were Nancy Pelosi, I would give in to the Republican’s demand of “drill here/drill now”.  I would call the House of Representatives back into session tomorrow, 4 September 2008, in the afternoon.  I would do this for two reasons.  First, that is when presumptive Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain will be accepting the Republican nomination for President.  Second, several of the Republicans are on a “fact finding mission” to Iraq & Afghanistan.  I believe that few of the Republicans would come back in the middle of the GOP convention and Speaker of the House Pelosi could always point out that she got down to business and the Republicans didn’t care enough about the American Working families to come back into session and vote on drilling.

And None Dare Call it Treason

Who is Randy Scheunemann?

He is the principal foreign policy adviser to John McCain and potential successor to Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski as national security adviser to the president of the United States.

But Randy Scheunemann has another identity, another role.
