PRESIDENT OBAMA needs to RECALL SENATORS McCAIN and GRAHAM from EGYPT before they START a WAR!

I could hardly believe it; it’s more proof that both the President has a clueless foreign policy and that Lindsey Graham needs to be defeated at the polls in the next election! The President sent Senators McCain and Graham to Egypt to “mediate” the dispute between the Muslim Brotherhood and the military-led new government.  I […]

JUDGE rules that PALMDALE SOUTH CAROLINA, or was it PALMDALE TEXAS VIOLATED rights of MINORITY VOTERS! WAS it PALMDALE LOUISIANA?

A judge has ruled that Palmdale discriminated against Latino voters in local elections!  Here’s the story! Was it Palmdale South Carolina?  Surely Palmdale Texas!  Maybe Palmdale Louisiana!  How about Palmdale Alabama! NO it was Palmdale CALIFORNIA! In a new critique of how minorities are treated in the Antelope Valley, a judge has ruled that Palmdale […]

MORE PROOF ICLEI has a FOREIGN POLICY? RIGHT IN the ICLEI USA WEBSITE! ICLEI USA meets with STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS!

I have contended for some time that ICLEI has a foreign policy.  The Constitution forbids states and local governments from conducting foreign policy goals. And as the Lord Jesus once said, “…for by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”  (Matthew 12:37 [KJV])  Here it is from ICLEI USA’s own blog!  (Michael Schmitz is the Executive […]

SANDY’S ANTI-ICLEI LEGAL ARTICLE cited before a LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE in NEW HAMPSHIRE!

This is a wonderful development!  My legal article, still seeking publication in a law journal, claiming that ICLEI membership is unconstitutional as local invasion of the exclusive Federal power to conduct foreign policy, was cited by my hero Hal Shurtleff before a legislative committee in the Granite State! Last year there was a bill – […]

WHY would SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC) help SENATOR JOE MANCHIN (D-WV) against SENATOR RAND PAUL (R-KY)? THE 2014 SC PRIMARY, that’s WHY!

I was and am elated when Senator Rand Paul ran these ads in Florida and West Virginia about their senator’s support for foreign aid for Egypt, Libya and Pakistan!  I would not wait:  No aid to any nation except maybe Israel! Well, Senator Manchin didn’t like his ad very much: Manchin said many senators thought […]

First Impressions of Paul Ryan Pick

By most measures, Paul Ryan is a great pick for Mitt Romney’s VP running mate. There are few in Washington that truly comprehend the US Budget and none of them are elected. This pick will give the Romney Campaign an opportunity to sidestep the distractions from the Obama Campaign and keep the message focused on […]

ICLEI is AT IT AGAIN! CONDUCTING FOREIGN POLICY! US CITIES MUST GET OUT NOW!

Once again, ICLEI nailed itself in one of its own documents:  This Delegation Briefing (here’s the copy from ICLEI website) for the what appeared to have failed (Praise God!) Rio+20 Summit has several things where ICLEI is clearly conducting foreign policy on behalf of its members: ICLEI Rio+20 preparations and advocacy ICLEI has decided to […]

DID the SUPREME COURT just DECLARE ICLEI UNCONSTITUTIONAL? Well, there is HELPFUL LANGUAGE!

There is a fair amount of wailing and gnashing of teeth on the Arizona immigrant decision and some of the teeth are mine!  But there is some useful supportive language in favor of it being unconstitutional for municipalities and local governments to conduct foreign policy.  And that means only one thing:  ICLEI is indeed unconstitutional […]

BLAME JOHN BIRCH again: OPINION in the MONTGOMERY (AL) ADVERTISER!

In a column in the Montgomery (AL) Advertiser, two research fellows at the (you guessed it) Southern Poverty Law Center have raised the ultimate fear of not being a member of ICLEI:  No grant money for sustainability!  (Of course blame John Birch and call it names!) SB 477 isn’t just pointless; it’s actually stupid. If […]

MARCO RUBIO’S TERRIBLE SPEECH on FOREIGN POLICY!

I like Senator Marco Rubio.  He’s a rising star in the GOP.  And Senator Rubio is still better than either President Obama or VP Biden.  But his speech on foreign policy was terrible.  It could have been written by Senator Lindsey Graham.  That is no compliment. Here’s the text and some highlights, or maybe lowlights: […]

WHY DON’T MORE SOUTHERNERS VOTE for RON PAUL?

I am very upset (although I enjoyed the two Santorum wins in Alabama and Mississippi – if it holds up Ron Paul got FOUR PERCENT in both states. So WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?

PERHAPS RON PAUL could SPEAK OUT about PASTOR YOUSSEF NADARKHANI in IRAN!

I was asked at my church to help focus prayer at the altar for Iranian Pastor Youssef Naderkhani, sentenced to death in Iran for converting to Christianity.  It is a great honor to do that!  So, while at church, I had an idea:  The Iranian leadership probably will not listen to most of the leaders […]

HUMBLE LIBERTARIAN: NOT ONE RACIST WORD – FORMER RON PAUL STAFFER WHO DOES NOT SUPPORT HIM TODAY!

Thanks to the Humble Libertarian (I am a libertarian but I am not humble!) I got this story on a former RP staffer, Eric Dondero, who does not support him for President but worked for Paul from 1997 to 2003.  Dondero is NO friend and in fact ran against Paul in 2008. Here’s the posting […]

ISN’T IT GREAT! RP is doing WELL! BUT, time to redouble our efforts to CONVINCE people that PAUL can WIN!

The news is certainly better than it has ever been about Ron Paul.  But our answer has to be to keep working to convince the doubters and skeptics. I am concerned that there is a definite smear campaign against RP.  This article with high billing on RedState (which once banned any comment favoring RP in […]

EXCELLENT video on why Ron Paul’s NON-INTERVENTIONIST FOREIGN POLICY is WISE!

HonestPresident2012 came up with this video on intervention.  It’s great.  Please watch it and use the stuff.  The only thing I would add is that this does not justify terrorism but we have a duty to try to find ways to lower the risk of terrorism and having an on-interventionist foreign policy is one of […]
