Palin: Why No Probe Of Barack 'Hussein' Obama?

"Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin alleges that the media has a blatant double standard, shining intense scrutiny on GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell while turning a blind eye to then-candidate Barack Obama's personal history in the 2008 campaign."

What the Founders and the State Ratification Conventions Can Teach Us Today

Price: $10.00- includes lunch. - Purchase tickets online HERE.

Due to high demand, this is a repeat offering of the August 7, 2010 workshop.

Space is limited for this event, pre-registration is required.

The past 100 years of Progressive ideology have almost destroyed the US Constitution. This generation must restore the Constitution's original intent of limited, federal government based on the rule of law.

This workshop provides today's Patriots with the intellectual tools to restore original intent and repair the damage done. It explains what the framers meant by phrases such as the "general welfare," "necessary and proper" and other so-called "elastic" clauses. In addition we explore the North Carolina ratification debates and reveal how the Tar Heel State ensured that the Bill of Rights was added. By examining the important role of the states in the nation's beginning and providing constitutional commentary based on the founders' words, this workshop is a must for Americans interested in preserving the United States and a federal form of government.

What the experts are saying about "A Citizen's Constitutional Workshop"

"The John Locke Foundation's workshop on the Constitution will provide a solid foundation for anyone interested in understanding the Founders' experiment in republican government. By taking a federal perspective upon the original understanding, students will learn how the Revolution was fulfilled by the Constitution -- and gain insight into the divergence between the world of James Madison, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson and the USA of today."

"A constitution is meaningless if its original intent is not preserved. "A Citizen's Constitutional Workshop" has embarked on a project to retrieve the original intent of the Constitution through the most reliable, yet overlooked, means at our disposal--the states. The innovative method of this project combined with its ambition to retrieve our Constitution, and with it the true meaning of limited government, makes it the most important project of its kind. Troy Kickler and Michael Sanera are following in the Founders' footsteps by bringing this discussion to a public forum which is certainly the best place to start."

"The Key to the Constitution, as James Madison said, is the State ratifying conventions, and North Carolina played a pivotal role in defining the nature and scope of federal power. The American people will gain a better understanding of the original intent of the Constitution if they can digest how members of the State ratifying conventions argued for and against the document."

DISCLOSE Act Defeated In Senate

The U.S. Senate today defeated the so-called DISCLOSE Act when it failed to garner the 60 votes necessary to overcome Republican objections to the bill. The final vote was 59-39.

Even though the exact same bill, sponsored by Chuck Schumer (D-NY), had been defeated just two months ago and was unlikely to pass, anti-gun Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV) brought it up for another vote to "stir up" his left-wing base.

Instead of protecting the most important type of speech protected by the First Amendment -- political speech -- with this bill Congress attempted to force groups like GOA to "disclose" the names of donors in certain political advertisements.

Since Gun Owners of America will never disclose its membership lists to the federal government, it could be prohibited from running radio or TV ads exposing a federal candidate's voting record in the weeks leading up to an election.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) aptly summed up the bill when it came to the floor in July:

"This DISCLOSE Act is not about reform, it's nothing more than Democrats sitting behind closed doors [choosing] which favored groups they want to speak in the 2010 elections -- all in an attempt to protect themselves from criticism of their government takeovers, record deficits and massive unpaid-for expansions of the federal government into the lives of the American people."

With a lame-duck session of Congress looming after the election, anything is possible -- including another attempt to push through DISCLOSE. So please stay tuned.

Concord High School and the Cabarrus County School Board are sanctioning an event by the Mexican Consulate that amounts to aiding and abetting illegal aliens. Aiding and abetting illegal aliens is a Federal felony offense. [Section 274 Felonies under the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A)]

The Mobile Mexican Consulate will be distributing Mexican passports and Matricula Consular cards to the Hispanic population in the Charlotte area, from North and South Carolina.

This event is designed for one purpose only and that is to "document the undocumented." It is to give illegal aliens a source of ID which they can then use to apply for welfare, social services, open bank accounts, register to vote and use the documents as proof of identification and NC residency to apply for NC drivers licenses. People that are in this country legally, already have the necessary legal documentation to be here, ie: passports, green cards, student visas, etc.

We are calling on all like minded individuals to join us and show their opposition to this event. We are directing our attention to the actions of Concord High School and the Cabarrus County School Board, not to any group or race of individuals. No violence and no racists signs or language. Improper behavior will not be tolerated.

A Question Settled By Violence Resolves Nothing

In the great debates that occurred in each of the 13 Independent Republics, to consider the momentous question of rejection or ratification of the newly proposed Constitution in 1787, there were no small number of great and learned men that vehemently opposed, and warnedGeorge Mason - A Virginia Anti-Federalist against, the adoption of that document.
