This first link takes you to a youtube video of a black man discussing rally for Treyvon Martin, the youth recently killed in Florida by a white neighborhood watch captain.  It is powerful and compelling.

The next two links concern a recently passed, (and signed into law), piece of legislation that removes an individuals right of free speech.  It doesn’t restrict the free speech, it completely removes it.

This first link is to a television news story discussing the law.

The President has stated many times that we need a new Constitution, guess he’s going to change it any way he can.

And finally, for those of you who didn’t know, the President recently signed an Executive Order allowing him to declare martial law.  The powers granted under this Executive Order are broad and sweeping, allowing the government to walk all over our Constitutional rights.

Here are several links discussing this Executive Order.

Mar 18, 2012 – We’re getting a lot of e-mail this weekend about an executive order issued on Friday afternoon by President Obama titled “National Defense

 

Thought I better get all this information out there before the Government restricts any political discussion or dissent in blogs.
 
That’s my 2 cents.

Second Amendment is NOT a fundamental right

Posted on July 24, 2009. Filed under: Life, Political Science, Politics | Tags: , , , , , , , |

According to Sotomayor the Second Amendment is NOT a fundamental right of the citizens.  Huh?  I thought it was protected under the Constitution, but Sotomayor has ruled that it isn’t.

Below is an article sent to me by Human Events.com and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, (CCKrBA).

U.S. SENATE IS PREPARING TO VOTE FOR A
RADICAL ANTI-GUN-RIGHTS EXTREMIST
FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE:

TELL THEM TO VOTE NO ON SOTOMAYOR!

Dear Gun Owners and Supporters of the Second Amendment:

America is getting closer and closer to seeing a radically anti-gun-rights extremist confirmed to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court… and the U.S. Senate is going to make sure it happens THIS COMING WEEK… unless YOU AND I stop them!

TELL THE SENATE TO REJECT THE
ANTI-GUN SOTOMAYOR NOMINATION:

SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!

You and I know that it is extremely important that a Supreme Court justice understand and appreciate the origin and meaning of the Second Amendment, a constitutional guarantee permanently enshrined in the Bill of Rights. The record of Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, on the Second Amendment should causes cause every patriotic American grave concern over her treatment of this enumerated constitutional right.

Last year, the Supreme Court decided the landmark case District of Columbia v. Heller, holding that the Second Amendment guarantees to all law-abiding, responsible citizens the individual right to keep and bear arms, particularly for self-defense. Following Heller, the Supreme Court is almost certain to decide next year whether the Second Amendment applies to states and local governments, as it does to the federal government (see NRA v. Chicago and McDonald v. Chicago.)

While sitting as a federal judge on the Second Circuit Appeals Court, Judge Sotomayor revealed her views on the right to keep and bear arms in Maloney v. Cuomo, a case decided after Heller, yet holding that the Second Amendment is NOT a fundamental right, that it does NOT apply to the states, and that if an object is “designed primarily as a weapon” then that is a sufficient basis for total prohibition — even within the home!

Earlier, in a 2004 case, United States v. Sanchez-Villar, Sotomayor and two colleagues perfunctorily dismissed a Second Amendment claim, holding that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.” Imagine if such a view were expressed about other fundamental rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, such as the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments!

TELL THE SENATE TO REJECT THE
ANTI-GUN SOTOMAYOR NOMINATION:

SEND YOUR FAXES NOW!

Surprisingly, Heller was a 5-4 decision, with some justices arguing that the Second Amendment does not apply to private citizens or that if it does, even a total gun ban could be upheld if a “legitimate governmental interest” could be found. The dissenting justices also found D.C.’s absolute ban on handguns within the home to be a “reasonable” restriction. If this had been the majority view, then ANY gun ban could be upheld, and the Second Amendment would be meaningless!

The Second Amendment survives today by a single vote in the Supreme Court. Both its application to the states AND whether there will be a meaningfully strict standard of review remain to be decided by the High Court. Judge Sotomayor has already revealed her views on these issues — and they are obviously contrary to the intent and purposes of the Second Amendment and Bill of Rights. As supporters of the Second Amendment who are deeply concerned about preserving all fundamental rights for current and future generations of Americans, we need to strongly oppose this nominee, and URGE the Senate NOT to confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor — NOW. Please, CLICK HERE NOW to send Blast Faxes to EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF THE U.S. SENATE, telling them to REJECT Sonia Sotomayor when the vote on her nomination comes up!
Sincerely,

Alan Gottlieb, Chairman
Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

UPDATE:  Sotomayor’s nomination to move it out of committee and to the full Senate is on Tuesday, July 28th.  It is expected to pass.
