Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

The Court Jester Holder Reverses on 9/11 Trials

It has been almost 10 years since the scum jihad terrorists attacked America killing almost 3000 and setting off wars over seas that continue to claim the lives of our brave military.

And since then, the 9/11 families wait for justice and 2 administrations and several Congresses have been unable to agree upon what to do with some of the masterminds of these attacks holding them at Guantanamo Bay Cuba military facility.

When Obama came into office, he and Holder announced they would pursue civilian court trials instead of the military tribunals. They spent millions of dollars in the last couple of years "studying" the cases and delaying justice even longer. Congress has insisted since then that the trials be held by the military and has blocked funding for civilian trials citing cost and security concerns--well founded in my opinion.

Today, and not coincidentally, on the same day King Barry has announced his $1 Billion community organizer reelection campaign and the day before Congressional hearings on the matter(which are going to go forward anyways) Eric Holder comes out and reverses course on the issue saying that while he believes the civilian courts are best that they are going to allow them to proceed in military tribunals.

Holder came out firing clearly at Congress, blaming them and attempting to undermine their credibility on this issue. What was most remarkable was that Holder cited Executive branch privilege in deciding these matters. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the Constitution that gives the Executive branch any such privilege in these matters-period! That pesky Constitution and co equal branches of government have forced the King and his fool from proceeding as they wish. Holder sounded like a whining little baby that didn't get his way. And we can be assured that EVERYTHING was done in the background by Holder to try and circumvent the Congress as this administration has proven time and time again that it will shun the Constitution and its limit on power whenever it suits them.

And let us not forget about who Eric Holder is. As a private attorney, his law firm defended previous terrorists. As Attorney General, he has practiced race-based law with the Black Panthers case in Philadelphia on election day 2008 being the most abhorrent when Black Panthers stood outside a polling place with batons posing as thugs to silently intimidate voters coming into the polling station. Holder saw no problem and threw out the case citing that "his people" deserve special evaluation in these cases...

And there are many many more. He is an anti-American and racist and will always put foreign countries and criminals interests before this country's. The Arizona immigration law is yet another example where rather than upholding his Constitutional authority he attacks a sovereign state and takes them to court as they try to protect their borders as they see fit since the US government has failed miserably on this front-on purpose!

We can only hope that these trials are now once and for all completed and these families at least get closure on this aspect of that horrible day nearly 10 years ago...
