Missouri officials SUE RESIDENTS for Voting Against Police State

Question: When do you know that you live in a tyranny?

Answer: When the citizens vote to ban red light cameras and the city reacts by suing them.

St. Peters, O’Fallon, Lake St. Louis, and a councilman from O’Fallon have filed a lawsuit against their OWN CITIZENS.

In November of last year, the citizens of St. Charles County democratically expressed their anger with the use of red light cameras in their town. Seventy-three percent of those who went to the polls approved a measure to ban red light cameras.

However, the fat cat bureaucrats, apparently afraid of losing the money generated from the rights-violating red light cameras, don’t like that vote. They are now taking action to punish the citizens for trying to undermine their perceived authority.

“Seventy-three percent of the voters pass a ban on red light cameras so what these cities are doing are suing 73 percent of the voters in St. Charles County, within their own cities. They’re suing their own residents,” said St. Charles County Councilman Joe Brazil.

In true Orwellian fashion, the cities are claiming that the measure, which was passed by voters, is unconstitutional.

The attorney representing the cities in the lawsuit said the county’s legal authority is cut and dry.

Zero turnout in New Mexico school election

The rural southeastern New Mexico town of Hagerman held an uncontested election for three school board seats, but nobody voted. Now what?

The Roswell Daily Record reports that’s what officials are trying to determine.

Chaves County Clerk Dave Kunko said the three candidates needed at least one vote each to be elected. And Kunko said because they aren’t incumbents they don’t remain in office automatically absent a replacement being elected.

Kunko said he’s received legal advice to have the current school board appoint the three candidates for the positions that were up for election.

Hagerman Schools Superintendent Ricky Williams said he’d prefer to have the three candidates declared the winners because none were challenged.

The fatal delusion of Political Salvation

By Robert McCurry – The Wake-Up Herald –

The 2014 mid-term election is over — the Republicans prevailed so what can be expected from the new regime? Will the political party power shift really change things or will it be business as usual?

Patrick J. Buchanan, a seasoned political analyst, says, “Our two-party system is a fraud, a sham, a delusion. On foreign policy, trade, immigration, big government, we have one-party government, one party press; and conservatives are being played for suckers.”

Alabama Governor George Wallace said, “There is not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democratic and Republican parties.” He was right.

Helen Keller once said, “We vote. What does that mean? It means that we choose between two bodies of real, though not avowed, autocrats. We choose between Tweedledum and Tweedledee.” She was right.

In his classic work The Law, first published in June 1850, Frederic Bastiat wrote:

When it is time to vote . . . the voter is not to be asked for any guarantee of his wisdom. His will and capacity to choose wisely are taken for granted. Can the people be mistaken? Are we not living in an age of enlightenment? What! Are the people always to be kept on leashes? Have they not won their rights by great effort and sacrifice? Have they not given ample proof of their intelligence and wisdom? Are they not adults? Are they not capable of judging for themselves? Do they not know what is best for them? Is there a class or a man who would be so bold as to set himself above the people and judge and act for them? No, no, the people are and should be free. They desire to manage their own affairs, and they shall do so.

But when the legislator is finally elected — ah! then indeed does the tone of his speech undergo a radical change. The people are returned to passiveness, inertness, and unconsciousness; the legislator enters into omnipotence. Now it is for him to initiate, to direct, to propel, and to organize. Mankind has only to submit; the hour of despotism has struck. We now observe this fatal idea: The people, who, during the election, were so wise, so moral, and so perfect, now have no tendencies whatever; or if they have any, they are tendencies that lead downward into degradation. ~Frederic Bastiat [1801-1850], French economist, statesman, and author

– Pro-Lifers and a New Republican Congress –

Among America’s many sins that must be dealt with — the most hideous and despicable sin of all — is the murder of 65+ million babies, plus 5,000 babies murdered every day via abortion since January 1973.

Harry Blackmun, a Republican, was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Richard Nixon and confirmed by the Senate on May 12, 1970, by a 94-0 vote. He authored the Court’s Republican majority opinion on Roe v. Wade. Blackmun became a passionate advocate for abortion rights, often delivering speeches and lectures promoting Roe v. Wade and criticizing Roe’s critics.

Sadly, abortion has been a Republican ‘political football’ for many years as indicated by this November 11, 2002, article that is as relevant today as if written this morning.

It is sad to report that pro-life groups are salivating about a new “pro-life” Congress. Poor souls! Their drooling will likely be in vain. I have it from high Republican places that the Party will not really, meaningfully pursue an anti-abortion agenda. There are too many liabilities for Republicans to give anything more than lip service to pro-lifers.

Do not misunderstand me. I am pro-life, and I wish that the Republican Party would make the struggle against child murder central in its effort, but I know they will not. There are too many suburban Republican women with money who would be turned off totally. There are too many Republican men who fear the consequences of live babies complicating their lives for at least eighteen years of child support. They are too many Republican doctors who perform abortions. There are too many Republicans who benefit from abortion, one way or another. There are too many Republicans whose pro-life position is a preference, not a conviction. ~Norman Ravitch, Ph.D., Toogood Reports, Nov 11, 2002

Alas! As Pilate of old attempted to wash his hands of the innocent blood of Jesus two thousand years ago when ‘he washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person [Jesus]: see ye to it” (Matt 27:24), political modernity attempts to wash its hands at the ballot box of the blood of millions of babies murdered by abortion since 1973. But political rhetoric, voting, and a new political regime will not absolve this blood guiltiness. God’s message to America is ‘Repent or perish!’

– The Dominant Christian Political Delusion Today –

The dominant Christian political delusion today is that Republicans represent some kind of cure-all political salvation to be implemented in America. This ability of Christians to lend their faith to unfounded propositions like this one does nothing but convince people that Jesus Christ is a fantasy and that Christians are exceedingly naive.

How can the world be expected to take Biblical claims about Jesus Christ seriously when His followers lend themselves to political fantasies that everyone else on earth knows is false and self-serving?

America’s political history proves that there is no real difference between either of the major political parties when it comes to concern and implementing the will of God in America. The differences are in their rhetoric but not in practice.

Political salvation is a mirage and quicksand.

God’s Word, the Bible — not the Bill of Rights or the U.S. Constitution — is square one, point of beginning to resolve America’s rapid descent into an inevitable demise.

Jesus Christ is Lord! The law of the Lord is perfect! “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us” (Isa 33:22).

OTHER MASTERS

By Chuck Baldwin – NewsWithViews.com –

Just as I predicted in this column last week, the GOP has captured the U.S. Senate, which means they now control both houses of Congress in Washington, D.C. But, if you recall, I also said that even if Republicans become the majority party in the Senate, it will not change impending amnesty for illegal aliens (or most anything else).

See my column: “There You Go Again”

Too many Republicans are as desirous of some sort of amnesty deal as are Democrats. Republicans like to call it “pathway to citizenship,” but the result is the same: millions of illegals will get an amnesty deal. Get used to the idea, folks; it is inevitable. The fact that the vast majority of the American people are AGAINST amnesty will not stop it from happening. (Anyone remember the giveaway of the Panama Canal?) Our “lords” and “masters” in Washington, D.C., (from both major parties) have determined that giving millions of illegals legal status is good for America. And, after all, our “masters” believe themselves to have God-like wisdom and power, so what you and I think about it doesn’t matter to a tinker’s dam. Besides, our politicians in Washington, D.C., don’t answer to We the People; they answer to a higher power–and, no, I’m not talking about the Almighty or the U.S. Constitution.

Breitbart.com covers the story:

“Hours after Mitt Romney declared that Republicans should pass amnesty legislation if the GOP takes back Congress, Pat Caddell blasted the incompetent Republican establishment for being beholden to their ‘other masters’ and not nationalizing the illegal immigration issue.

“On Breitbart News Sunday, Caddell, the Fox News analyst and former Jimmy Carter adviser who long ago figured out that Americans were disenchanted with politics because they hated the permanent political class, said ‘Republicans have failed to put a race away’ this cycle even though Obama’s numbers are so low and ‘there is such anxiety about the future of the country.’

“‘They are just like watching French and British generals in World War I,’ Caddell said of the GOP establishment to host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon. ‘They learn nothing and forget everything. It’s amazing.’

“Caddell said Republicans have failed to offer the country a ‘positive message’ and nationalize the election against Obama’s agenda. He said Americans dislike ‘intensely both political parties’ because ‘they feel they are getting screwed–and they are.’ Caddell said that since Obama said his policies are on the ballot, Republicans should have had a simple message: ‘If you’re against those policies, send President Barack Obama a message. Vote Republican.’

“But Caddell said Republican establishment advisers ‘have other masters,’
and that is why GOP candidates are not running against illegal immigration. Caddell acknowledged that the ‘immigration issue is the single biggest switch I have seen on an issue.’ Americans, Caddell said, have been ‘changed on immigration’ and are against President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty after ‘what’s happened the last three months ever since the children showed up and Breitbart [News]’ published leaked photos of illegal immigrant children being warehoused.”

The report goes on to say, “Regarding amnesty and illegal immigration, Caddell noted that establishment Republicans even in the South are generally ‘not allowed to speak of it’ because they have ‘higher orders’ to obey from their ‘other masters.’

Election brings new GOP power to state Capitols

From the Associated Press –

State capitols across the country will be more Republican than at any point since the Roaring ’20s when victorious legislators and governors take office next year. That could result in lower taxes and perhaps fewer dollars flowing to social safety net programs.

A day after a big election, newly emboldened Republican state leaders already were making plans Wednesday to pursue deeper tax cuts, relax business regulations, expand private school vouchers and impose new limits on public welfare programs.

In some states, such as Kansas, Republicans will be able to do as they want, because they control both chambers of the legislature and the governor’s office. In others, such as neighboring Missouri, the Republicans’ legislative supermajorities will be so large that they can essentially disregard the objections of a Democratic governor. Elsewhere, like in New York, the Republican takeover of one legislative chamber simply means a stronger say in a state still otherwise led by Democrats.

Nowhere in the entire nation did Democrats take over a legislative chamber previously held by Republicans. And Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett was the only Republican chief executive to fall to a Democratic challenger.

For statehouse Republicans, “it’s their strongest position in nearly a century,” said Tim Storey, an analyst at the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Republicans will have full control of at least 29 state legislatures, according to the conference, the party’s largest total since 1928, perhaps earlier. The GOP will hold at least 32 governorships, including newly won offices in traditionally Democratic Illinois, Maryland and Massachusetts.

In many cases, the Republican victories expanded majorities won in previous elections, such as the 2010 GOP sweep. Over the past several years, Republicans already have used those majorities to cut taxes, restrict abortions, expand gun rights and limit the powers of public employee unions.

Those all remain high on the Republican agenda.

“We’re going to focus on legislation that helps small businesses, whether that’s taxes, labor or the regulatory environment,” said Missouri House Speaker-nominee John Diehl, whose Republican caucus now holds its highest-ever number of seats.

The challenge for Republicans may be to constrain their enthusiasm, lest they go further than some voters had anticipated and complicate their chances of re-election in the future.
