Blogburst: Death to the ACLU

Perhaps there is no other issue as fragile to the preservation of our liberties than a careful balance between civil liberties and our national security. To its credit, the ACLU recognizes the danger if the scales are tipped too far to the side of national security, however it doesn't seem to acknowledge the danger if the scales are reversed.

On July 12, 1990, Morton Halperin, who at that time was director of the Washington Office of the ACLU, testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence: "The ACLU is deeply troubled by the notion that there is a national security exception to the Fourth Amendment or any part of the Bill of Rights. We regard those rights as fundamental and absolute."

"Absolute" is the key word to understanding the ACLU. Its absolutist philosophies, just as any extremist view, endangers the very civil liberties it claims to protect.

In his book "Twilight of Liberty", William Donahue compares Halperins views of liberty with that of Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson said, "A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country, by scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us: thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

"There is no doubting the ACLU's concern that there are untrustworthy public officials who will invoke national security as a cloak to cover their own wrongdoings; the pages of history are full of them. But does that mean that the only proper response is to make absolute the Bill of Rights, even in those clear-cut instances when the nation's viability is seriously called into question: It is fair to say that most who have studied the question would prefer to side with Jefferson on this matter" Twilight of Liberty pg 172

There is probably no other time that a proper balance between civil liberties and national security becomes more important than in wartime. During times of war, sometimes unusual responses are implemented, often requiring suspension of certain liberties. Of course war opens the opportunity for abuse by governments, and the ACLU are right to watch for them. However, the ACLU in its absolutist perception of freedom, only worries about one side of the equation, civil liberties. It pays no attention to the national security side of things, not only ignoring it, but in many cases working against it.

It is nothing new for the ACLU. The grew out of an organized effort to protest World War I. The only exception to their anti-war stance was World War II, and part of that is due to the investigation during this time into the theory they could be a Communist Front group.

"After 9-11, the ACLU and its leftist cohorts spearheaded a movement to depict the US in general – and the airline industry in particular – as a snake pit of bigoted vipers eager to abuse and humiliate Muslims and Middle Easterners. The statistics, however, tell quite another story. During the nine months immediately following 9-11, the ADC received a mere 60 reports of incidents where airline security personnel prevented “Arab-looking” male passengers from flying as scheduled. While this may have been an annoying inconvenience for those affected, six or seven complaints per month is hardly an epidemic – particularly in light of the fact that the most devastating attack in American history had just been carried out by nineteen men of virtually identical physical, ethnic, and religious characteristics".

"From 9-11 to the present day, the ACLU has vigorously opposed every governmental attempt to more effectively protect the American people’s security. It sued, for example, to prevent the implementation of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, which was passed in November 2001 and included a citizenship requirement for airport screeners. It organized protests against a “discriminatory” Justice Department and INS registration system requiring male “temporary visitors” to the US from 25 Arab and Muslim nations to register with the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. It condemned the FBI’s “discriminatory” plan to count and document every mosque in the US. It protested when FBI and Homeland Security agents recently tried to track down illegal Iraqi immigrants they deemed dangerous. In Illinois, the ACLU actually set up a hotline designed to give free legal advice to undocumented Iraqis facing deportation. Former ACLU Executive Director Ira Glasser casually dismissed Americans’ concerns about illegal immigration, chalking such sentiments up to a “wave of anti-immigrant hysteria.”

"The ACLU further claims that the Patriot Act has created an Orwellian big government of unprecedented proportions. “Under the new Ashcroft guidelines,” reads one of its disingenuous press releases, “the FBI can freely infiltrate mosques, churches and synagogues and other houses of worship, listen in on online chat rooms and read message boards even if it has no evidence that a crime might be committed.” Curiously, the ACLU does not mention that the FBI already had the authority to take these measures long before the Bush administration took power. Nor does the ACLU point out that the FBI can wiretap only after showing a court that the suspect is affiliated with a foreign terrorist group or government – the very same requirement instituted 25 years ago by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act".

"What the ACLU is actually rebelling against is the Justice Department’s recent removal of Clinton-era intelligence-gathering restrictions that had crippled the government’s ability to fight terrorism. These restrictions prohibited intelligence investigators from conferring and sharing information with criminal investigators, even if they were both trailing the very same suspect who was plotting a terrorist act. On August 29, 2001, for instance, an FBI investigator in New York desperately pleaded for permission to initiate an intensive manhunt for al-Qaeda operative Khalid Almihdar, who was known to be planning something big. The Justice Department and the FBI deputy general counsel’s office both denied the request, explaining that because the evidence linking Almihdar to terrorism had been obtained through intelligence channels, it could not legally be used to justify or aid an FBI agent’s criminal investigation; in short, it would constitute a violation of Almihdar’s “civil rights.” “Someday, someone will die,” the agent wrote to his FBI superiors, “and the public will not understand why we were not more effective and throwing every resource we had at certain problems.” Thirteen days later, Almihdar took over the cockpit of American Airlines Flight 77 and crashed it into the Pentagon
Exerpt Front Page Magazine

One of the most revealing occurances towards the ACLU's absolutist position on national security and its recent evolution can be seen in the action the board of directors took at its Oct 1989 meeting: It dropped section (a) from its policy, "Wartime Sedition Act." Before, the ACLU held that it "would not participate (save for fundamental due process violations) in defense of any person believed to be "cooperating" with or acting on behalf of the enemy." This policy was based on the recognition that "our own military enemies are now using techniques of propaganda which may involve an attempt to prevent the Bill of Rights to serve the enemy rather than the people of the United States." In making its determination as to whether someone were cooperating with the enemy, "the Union will consider such matters as past activities and associations, sources of financial support, relations with enemy agents, the particular words and conduct involved, and all other relevant factors for informed judgement."

All of this is now omitted from the Official ACLU policy!

As these policy changes indicate, balancing national security interests and civil liberties is not a goal of the ACLU. Its only goal is the absolute pursuit of unlimited civil liberties, with no regard to any consequence or negative impact upon our security. Not only does it ignore the issue of national security, but there are many examples I have shown where they actually work against it, even to the point of defending the enemy. The absolute tragedy is that it is not only the nations's security the ACLU's absolutist philosophy puts in danger, but the very cause of liberty itself. We've also saw recently the attitude of the ACLU to securing our borders, again civil liberties trump national security.

It pursues its radical agenda with your taxdollars.

1984 Has Arrived And It's Called The Socialist State Of California

A bill quietly moving its way through the California legislature has all the earmarks of turning California further into a socialist police state. This bill would require handgun ammunition makers to micro stamp each and every single round with a serial number so that they could be tracked by the driver's license of the purchaser. Put aside the 2nd Amendment issues for a second and just consider the privacy issue of the state tracking your purchases in yet another effort to suppress gun ownership. Very Orwellian in my humble opinion and frankly doomed to failure if the Governor actually signs the bill into law since it will face very little if any opposition in the Democrat controlled legislature.

Where is the ACLU you ask? Surely they see the potential for abuse if this law passes, oh yeah they don’t do 2nd Amendment cases. They pick and choose with of our rights they will defend. Certainly they have a problem with the State of California tracking purchases made by its citizens, not likely. I will be contacting the ACLU of both Northern and Southern California to get their opinion on the bill and whether they plan to oppose it at all, stay tuned for an update later today.

Afghan Women Embrace Opportunities Thanks To The United States

Day by day there are good things happening in Afghanistan and Iraq and yet our successes abroad go unreported by the MSM. Well when I ran across this story late last week I knew I had to post about it.

As most people know, one of the unintended effects of the United States liberating the Afghan people has been a backward slide to an enormous drug trade of heroin, opium, and hashish. As the coalition forces work with the Afghan people to fight the drug trade a group of women have stepped up and heeded the call of their nation. Malalai Badahari is one such women, she is one of a handful of women who are members of the National Interdiction Unit. During the day Malalai scans the streets for leads that might bring a big drug bust or lead to the arrest of one the new drug lords. Instead of the traditional burqa and veil, Badahari patrols the streets of Kabul in dark sunglasses, combat fatigues and carries an AK-47, all of which would have been unthinkable during the Taliban rule. At night she returns to her traditional dress and her family in her quiet neighborhood where her neighbors think she is a teacher. The 37 year old Malalai is unfazed by the dangers she faces for she is named for an Afghan heroine that fought against the British around the turn of the century.

“I like President Hamid Karzai because now I can carry a Kalashnikov. This is the new Afghanistan,” she says, cradling her machine-gun on her lap and pushing the shades back over the black cap she wears to cover her hair when she is at work.

In the short time that she has been on the force she has already recorded a bust of 7 kilos of opium and 70 kilos of hashish. When asked about the dangers of such a job, Malalai simply stated that she faced greater danger during the Taliban rule since she secretly tutored women on how to read and write. While the job ahead will be difficult and long, Malalai is hopeful that one day her efforts, as well as the other women that will join her on the force, will pay off in a safer Afghanistan for all. God Bless this women for her courage and strength. I wish I could say that I had read the original story on some American news site but since the MSM continues to disregard any good news coming out of Afghanistan or Iraq, I guess we will have to get the good news from overseas news sources. Have a great day everyone.

Why Illegal Immigration Is Everyone's Problem

I write quite a bit about the dangers of illegal immigration and often in comments and email I am bluntly told that illegal immigration is a problem of the Southwest United States. Well I beg to differ, illegal immigration is a problem for every citizen of this country and frankly it’s only going to get worse before it gets better. Illegal immigration eats away at the security of this nation everyday in many ways. Some illegal immigrates come to America only to “milk the system” or commit crimes against American citizens. Granted the majority come to America to seek a better life for themselves and their families, I don’t have any argument with anyone who comes to America for that purpose. As the saying goes, “Don’t hate the player, hate the game.”

News has started to filter out via the MSM about illegal immigration issues outside the American southwest. Many states and cities are now passing laws that enable local law enforcement to actually assist the border patrol by actually detaining, charging, and holding illegal immigrates. Seems the folks in Danbury, Connecticut have some cause for concern since the latest estimates have 10,000 to 15,000 illegal immigrates within the city limits. Folks, the city of Danbury only have a population of 77,000. That means that 12% to 19% of the cities population is here illegally. Now in the southwest United States there are many cities that have a much larger percentage of illegal residents and that is sad in itself but we are talking about Danbury Freaking Connecticut. I can certainly understand how the lily white are getting nervous about the illegal immigrates in their community but in many ways they have brought it upon themselves. It started with a few illegals getting hired here and there as servants and landscapers since Americans won’t do those jobs, another myth of illegal immigration, and has spread to those few bringing friends and family to the country illegally. The problem is not one of race but of simply illegal immigration, recently 13 people of Eastern European and Eastern Asian descent were caught in Vail, Colorado. Illegal immigration is simply illegal and wrong.

In many ways, we are all to blame because we have become as complacent as every politician and every business that looks the other way while the system feds on itself and further fuels the cycle of illegal immigration. Mexico does not even bother to hide the fact that they encourage their citizens to come to the United States illegally so that they might send money back to Mexico, in fact as far as Mexican television is concerned Los Angeles is already part of Mexico. Money flowing south from illegals in the United States now is set to surpass the Mexico oil industry as the number one contributor to the pathetic Mexican economy, recent reports place the number at 16.6 BILLION in 2004 and it is expected that this year’s amount will be even greater.

The spread of illegal immigrates is costing Americans billions of dollars and after you take a look at the numbers below, think about what it’s going to cost you and your community.

Cost of Illegal Immigration to Texas: 4.7 billion a year or an extra $725 to each resident in the form of taxes, higher education costs, higher law enforcement costs, and higher health care costs.

Cost of Illegal Immigration to California: 10.5 billion a year or an extra $1,183 to each resident in the form of taxes, higher education costs, higher law enforcement costs, and higher health care costs.

Cost of Illegal Immigration to Arizona: 1.3 billion a year or an extra $700.00 to each resident in the form of taxes, higher education costs, higher law enforcement costs, and higher health care costs.

A couple of good sites for real information on illegal immigration are the Federation for the American Immigration Reform and the Center for Immigration Studies. Currently there is a movement to force the government to address illegal immigration; you can read about it here and here. The “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” event runs from April 23rd thru the 28th in Washington D.C. and aims to “educate” lawmakers as to how unhappy many Americans are with their lack of progress towards reforming immigration laws. One bit of good news on the illegal immigration front, the Sierra Club has decided not to enter the immigration debate. It seems that nearly 84% of Sierra Club members voted against a change in policy that would have called for a reduction in all immigration as a way to lessen the environmental consequences of population growth. So sad, too bad. I am glad that they did not throw their hat in the ring; we do not need the help of fringe groups in this battle to secure our borders and save our country. They only serve to marginalize our legitimate efforts.

Folks, this issue is not going away and if you care at all about this country I urge you to educate yourself and others to the issue and then help us hold the government accountable for their lack of border security and immigration reform. Have a great day everyone.

Kerry's Form 180: The Blogburst Edition

John Kerry has never released his military records, in spite of his bragging about being a “war hero", and claiming he would release them soon on the "Meet The Press" television show with Tim Russert and the "Imus in the Morning" show with Don Imus. So let’s encourage him to release his military records to “clear things up".

As a group of concerned citizens who want to hold our leaders accountable we’ve formed a blogburst group to drive the issue home. If you want to join the blogroll for Kerry’s 180, click here to email the group founder, Cao and include the url for your blog. The blogburst is every Tuesday, so don’t forget to blog about it. All you have to do is encourage people to send him his 180, Just ask in your email and Cao will send you the code for the blogroll.

Here's the link to the actual form that he needs to fill out, as you can see there is not really much to it. Hell, I bet even one of his staffers could fill it out for him and make it even easier for him. Folks the simple truth is that like many of the "soldiers" at Kerry's famed Winter Meetings, Kerry lied about his service and because he has made it a centerpiece of his public service his record or lack there of is a issue he must deal with. Join in as we start to send pens to John's office so he can fill out and sign the form. So quote a great American:

"Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win? "

Some More Reasons to Hate the ACLU

Recently I have gotten some email from supporters and even members of the ACLU here in Arizona and elsewhere complaining that I only focus on the “unintended” negative impact of the ACLU on the American landscape. When I asked these “people” for examples they could provide none and since they are just mindless socialists following the lead of their “home office” I will not publish their names and/or email addresses at this time. I however in this post will publish just a few examples of the “evil” that the ACLU does. I have collected these over the short span of less then a week so sit back and enjoy the freakshow as they say but take heart true believers the news is not all bad.

The first story I will discuss comes to us from the wonderful city of Flint, Michigan. Seems that the ACLU is once again riding to the rescue of drug users and drug dealers and this time using the Constitution to serve their “evil” purposes. The ACLU feels that the right to assemble extends to those who frequent known drug houses or other places where drugs are illegally used and sold. The Flint Police rightfully raided a nightclub where drugs were openly used and sold. At the end of the raid 17 of the patrons were arrested for suspicion of possession and the remaining people were given misdemeanor tickets for frequenting a known drug house, which is punishable by a $500 fine, 90 days in jail and 2 years probation. The ACLU was promptly called and they proceeded to drop this wisdom on us, "It penalizes the right to free expression with a drug charge that carries a stigma that can affect these people for the rest of their lives," Gibbs said.” He's among 11 attorneys who have agreed to represent suspects for misdemeanor charges in the case. The ACLU is not representing any of the 17 people facing felony drug charges.

Given the ACLU’s policy on drug legalization it’s pretty hypocritical of them not to defend the 17 who actually had drugs on them but then I am getting off point. Take this comment by local law enforcement and weigh it against the statement from the ACLU. “Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell, whose drug deputies participated in the raid, said What's Next has a history of tolerance for drug use that makes it a known trafficking area for dealers and users. Unfortunately folks this ploy by the ACLU has worked in the past, they won a similar case in Racine, Wisconsin back in 2002. It is the responsibility of the citizen to not put themselves in a situation where they might be ticketed for this offense; it has nothing to do with the First Amendment right to assemble. I am sure that the Founding Fathers did not mean that we had the right to assemble where criminal activity was being conducted. Can you see the dangerous precedent this could set? Police Departments all over the country use this type of law to keep people out of drug areas and thus help reduce the amount of drugs being sold. Well let’s hope the judge in Michigan has more sense of what the Constitution actually grants us then the judge in the Wisconsin case. Fortunately the prosecutor in Michigan has a good head on her shoulders and the city’s ordinance has already withstood legal challenges.

This next example comes from the Houston Chronicle and directly from the lips of an ACLU operative. The ACLU opposed some very successfully drug raids that were happening in Harris County, Texas because they tended to stick to lower income and minority areas. The rest of the article is gloating and the typical ACLU party line being spewed. I am not a member of law enforcement and I certainly don’t belong to any groups that seek to keep poor minorities down but I do recognize the reality that in most cities in this country, drugs are usually most prevalent in lower income areas which unfortunately are often home to many minorities. You don’t have to be a genius to understand that if we want to catch criminals then you have to go where they live and/or work. It has nothing to do with racial profiling as the ACLU would have you believe. If a WHITE MAN robs jewelry store and the cops start looking for a WHITE MAN in the nearby area because that is who robbed the store. That is not racial profiling, that is taking the information available and doing the job of catching criminals. It is unfortunate that so many of America’s criminals are themselves minorities and live in low income minority areas but damn if that’s where the bad guys are then that is where you go.

Let’s take this a step farther, we were attacked on 9/11 by 19 male Arabs. Since then has the TSA done any special screening of male Arabs entering the country on flights from known terrorist havens, nope, not at all? When the TSA under the watchful eye of Norm Mineta was asked why they were not doing special screenings for male Arabs, the reason given was that they did not want to insult or offend innocent male Arabs. Well you know again I am sorry but if we were attacked by terrorists that happen to be male Arabs then if you want to keep us safe from another attack you better take a look at male Arabs. Apparently in its march to destroy America, the ACLU is firmly in lockstep with the terrorists who wish to do us harm.

And the third story to make of the ACLU trifecta of “evil” is about how the ACLU with absolutely no regard for the financial well being of the University of Wisconsin system is demanding health benefits for unmarried domestic partners. Ok, a couple of things with this one. First I don’t really care who you are or how wronged you may be, if the employer, company, or who ever does not have the money then your not going to get the pay, benefits, or whatever. The facts of this case are that the University of Wisconsin and the State of Wisconsin can hardly extend benefits to unmarried partners of employees since the state is facing a 1.6 billion dollar deficit. It is very ironic that the ACLU has chosen Wisconsin to press the gay rights case, mainly because Wisconsin is very gay friendly and one of the most leftist/socialist states in the country.

Look the law, remember the law, in Wisconsin is very clear, the state will not extend health benefits to unmarried partners of employees. Now since the state currently has no law allowing same-sex marriages the five couples named in the lawsuit are up a creek with no paddle. I really hate how the ACLU takes and twists an issue in to something it is not. This case is being billed as the latest in gay rights but it’s really not. The state has laws in place that have created this unfortunate situation for these folks and the only way it is going to change is if the state passes a law allowing same-sex marriage which does not seem likely since the legislature in Wisconsin is going to send a proposal to the votes to amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage as early as next year. I actually don’t have a problem with the University of Wisconsin extending benefits to the partners of unmarried gay employees but the law and the fact that the state is broke says otherwise. As much as the ACLU wants to change the laws of Wisconsin by this lawsuit that is just not how things are done.

Now at the start of this very long post I promised some good news about the ACLU. Well here it is, recently the ACLU lost a case in which a previous precedent that the ACLU had in fact set was successfully used to defend a Christian group. The ACLU in losing this case has now reversed themselves on the very precedent they used to get a school district to grant access to a gay student club. Actually the ACLU has not lost anything rather they have now filed a friend of the court brief in opposition to Equal Access Act. I just love it when the ACLU shows up on both sides of an issue; it just further illustrates what an “evil” organization they are. I guess they are the ones who taught John Kerry that “both sides of the issue” trick. The Alliance Defense Fund used the Equal Access Act in exactly the same manner that the ACLU did in a similar case involving a gay student group that was denied access for after-school activities. The Case, Prince vs. Jacoby was heard by the “hated” Ninth circuit court of Appeals and simply had no choice but to follow the precedent set by the ACLU’s case. I really can’t say it any better then the ADF’s Tim Chandler so I will just quote him, "This goes to show how far the ACLU will manipulate the legal system to further their radical agenda," said Chandler, a litigation specialist who is working on the case. "They are backtracking," Chandler said. "They used these laws to get what they wanted – equal rights for the gay-straight alliance – and now that they've gotten that, they want to retract it so the Bible club doesn't get the same benefits." Predictably the ACLU of Washington state could not be reached for comment on their friend of the court filing. It warms my heart to see this groups legal tricks turned against them.

Well folks that is all for today. I know that many out their in the vast space of the BlogSphere still believe that the ACLU does good and sticks up for the little man, woman, gay, or illegal immigrate, well to you ignorant people I have just one little statement, get a clue or at least buy one. The ACLU is a leftist/socialist group that is dedicated to the destruction of the values that America was founded upon. Simply put, there are on a level with the Islamofascists when it comes to the danger that they pose to this country. If I have sparked your interest, please head over to the Stop the ACLU blog and the Stop the ACLU website to find out more. Have a great day everyone.

WTF Friday Rant Volume 1 Issue 21

Happy Freaking Earth Day to all you tree-hugging Freaks who value plants over human life. How is Earth Day working out for you kooks on the left? From where I sit it looks as if your little holiday has not accomplished jack sh*t. In fact most people I know are far and away more committed to the environment then many of the fruits and nuts crowd on the left. Remember the definition of insanity, "Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results each time." Now that I got that off my extremely non-politically correct chest on to this weeks installment of the WTF Friday Rant. If your around the BlogSphere at 8pm Eastern and feel inclined, join us over at Stop the ACLU for our weekly chat and be sure to listen to Kender Uncensored tonight from 12am - 2am Pacific over here. I will also have a post over at The Wide Awakes this afternoon so be sure to stop on by and drop off your two cents. Next weekend I head to the Arizona-Mexico border to express my support for the Minuteman Project and "observe" the "legal observers".
Have a great weekend everyone.

Just when I thought the French were turning the corner, too much to hope for I guess.

Passing the buck is Heinz-Kerry tradition; The Wicked Witch of the East blames new Pope for her hubby's loss. There goes the religiously tolerant left setting the bar again.

Again the ACLU rides to the rescue of criminals, this time it's those often misunderstood Drunk Drivers.

Germany barely notices their Cardinal made Pope despite millions of members and millions in government funding for the churches.

The Ignorant Atheists slam Pope on past. I say Burn in Hell to them and by the way I forgive your ignorance but the Guy downstairs might have a different opinion.

Retiring Rep. Hyde says Clinton impeachment was revenge for Nixon impeachment. Whatever.

147 Brazilians caught illegally entering the country through Texas, Brazil vows not to take a backseat to Mexico in the illegal immigration race.

This week's winner of the Pot calling the Kettle black award is again the Democratic Party led by the King of Hypocrisy Harry Reid. They could have won for the long-standing dispute over judicial appointees and the fact that well they were in power they made the same argument the Republicans are making for a straight up and down vote. But I choose to stick with the current double-standard they are pushing in regards to ethics in the Congress. Namely the way they have gone all out to purse an ethics investigation against Tom Delay while ignoring the ethics misdealings of one Hillary Clinton and her campaign finance director. Like I said before if Delay is guilty then get him out of the House, and when it's proven that Hillary knew what her money man was doing then get her out of the Senate. Enough said, enjoy the link.

Michael Moore starts scholarship to promote civil disobedience on college campus and thus jeopardizes the winner’s future. The kid’s parents must be very proud and grateful to Mikey.

U.S. Military to formalize ties to the Libyan military, my how the times have changed.

Schwarzenegger back-pedals on border comment, says he learned that trick from his in-laws.

ACLU gets it wrong again, wants Air Marshals to tell all so that the terrorist know our air travel weaknesses. When oh when is this Anti-American group going to added to the terrorist list and prosecuted with the RICO statue?

Interesting "Princess Bride" reference in regards to the new Pope. Benedict XVI sets lofty goal of converting Europe's Muslims to Christianity.

Unhappy with your car's performance? If you live in Florida, don't put it out of its misery.

I can't believe this and I live within ten miles of the freaking city. Folks, I present to you the newest member of the Mesa Arizona SWAT Team, SWAT MONKEY!!!!

Eye for an Eye takes on a whole new meaning in Bangladesh.

Further proof that the Cubs and all of their fans are cursed. Please Lord in my lifetime ok?

Blogburst: Death to the ACLU

The ACLU does not really defend your civil rights as they claim to do, rather they pick and choose their cases based on the political agenda that they pretend does not exist. There is no greater example of their blatant double standard then the 2nd Amendment that we all enjoy. According to the ACLU, the 2nd Amendment is only meant for the preservation of a state militia and not the individual right that the rest of the country knows to be true. Here’s what I was about to find on the Internet since the ACLU has no documentation on their website, this information comes from a cached page of the ACLU’s website and has since been taken down by the ACLU.

The following excerpts are taken from the ACLU web site at

"The ACLU agrees with the Supreme Court's long-standing interpretation of the Second Amendment [as set forth in the 1939 case, U.S. v. Miller] that the individual's right to bear arms applies only to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia. Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected. Therefore, there is no constitutional impediment to the regulation of firearms."

"Since the Second Amendment. . . applies only to the right of the State to
maintain a militia and not to the individual's right to bear arms, there
can be no serious claim to any express constitutional right to possess a firearm."
U.S. v. Warin (6th Circuit, 1976)

"If indeed the Second Amendment provides an absolute, constitutional protection for the right to bear arms in order to preserve the power of the people to resist government tyranny, then it must allow individuals to possess bazookas, torpedoes, SCUD missiles and even nuclear warheads, for they, like handguns, rifles and M-16s, are arms. Moreover, it is hard to imagine any serious resistance to the military without such arms."

"The 1939 case U.S. v. Miller is the only modern case in which the Supreme Court has addressed this issue. A unanimous Court ruled that the Second Amendment must be interpreted as intending to guarantee the states' rights to maintain and train a militia."

Here’s another example of the ACLU’s indifference towards the 2nd Amendment, again from a cached page since they have seen fit to take down the position paper. This is the original URL: and the text is below.

The ACLU has often been criticized for "ignoring the Second Amendment" and refusing to fight for the individual's right to own a gun or other weapons. This issue, however, has not been ignored by the ACLU. The national board has in fact debated and discussed the civil liberties aspects of the Second Amendment many times.

We believe that the constitutional right to bear arms is primarily a collective one, intended mainly to protect the right of the states to maintain militias to assure their own freedom and security against the central government. In today's world, that idea is somewhat anachronistic and in any case would require weapons much more powerful than handguns or hunting rifles. The ACLU therefore believes that the Second Amendment does not confer an unlimited right upon individuals to own guns or other weapons nor does it prohibit reasonable regulation of gun ownership, such as licensing and registration.

Unless the Constitution protects the individual's right to own all kinds of arms, there is no principled way to oppose reasonable restrictions on handguns, Uzis or semi-automatic rifles. If indeed the Second Amendment provides an absolute, constitutional protection for the right to bear arms in order to preserve the power of the people to resist government tyranny, then it must allow individuals to possess bazookas, torpedoes, SCUD missiles and even nuclear warheads, for they, like handguns, rifles and M-16s, are arms. Moreover, it is hard to imagine any serious resistance to the military without such arms. Yet few, if any, would argue that the Second Amendment gives individuals the unlimited right to own any weapons they please. But as soon as we allow governmental regulation of any weapons, we have broken the dam of Constitutional protection. Once that dam is broken, we are not talking about whether the government can constitutionally restrict arms, but rather what constitutes a reasonable restriction.

Their extreme double-standard on this portion of the Bill of Rights is further cemented by this form letter response that I recently received; the full text is below, minus my personal information of course.

Dear Mr. XXXXX,

Thank you for the question about the ACLU's position on the Second Amendment. The national ACLU is neutral on the issue of gun control.

We believe that the Constitution contains no barriers to reasonable regulations of gun ownership. If we can license and register cars, we can license and register guns. The question therefore is not whether to restrict arms ownership, but how much to restrict it. If that is a question left open by the Constitution, then it is a question for Congress to decide.

The interesting part of their response is that I was directed back to their website which has absolutely no information on their position regarding the 2nd Amendment, here is my search results on the ACLU website. It is very interesting to me that a group that is all about individual rights and regularly interprets the phrase “the people” found throughout the Bill of Rights to represent each and every American on an individual basis but when the phrase is used in the 2nd Amendment the ACLU recognizes it as a collective group right rather then the right of the individual. While researching this post I came across this outrageous letter to editor from an ACLU wacko at Ohio University, enjoy. Just another example of the ACLU trying to have it both ways when dealing with the Bill of Rights.

Government reserves right to regulate distribution of firearms


I am appalled by the audacity with which the leadership of the Second Amendment Club has attacked Ohio University's Student Senate.

They do so on the premise that student senate's resolution banning guns on campus somehow limits our "civil liberties." Exactly what version of the Bill of Rights is the Second Amendment Club reading?

Indeed, the Second Amendment, in its entirety, states "A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Proponents of the Second Amendment, more often than not, seem to abandon the first provision of a "well-regulated militia" altogether for their constant rants of a "right to bear arms." Moreover, the Constitution grants no specific individual right to gun ownership but a collective right of a people to rise up in arms in times of conflict. For anyone to argue otherwise would be foolish. Government — be it federal, state, local or campus-wide — has every right to regulate the sale, distribution and ownership of handguns as it is not specifically prohibited from doing so in our Constitution.

Because there was no violation of the Bill of Rights, student senate could not possibly have ignored any of the "civil liberties" the Second Amendment Club claimed it did. Before resorting to petty name calling and making false accusations, the Second Amendment Club should study our Constitution. The only remedy for ignorance is, after all, education.

Executive Director,

Well the Department of Justice who is tasked with the execution of this nation’s laws begs to differ with the ACLU’s view of our 2nd Amendment right, read about it here. The rights of Americans to keep and bear arms is just as important as any included in the Bill of Rights. If the ACLU was holding true to its mission statement then it at the very least would have an actual opinion on the issue. I guess since they are now the legal arm of the Democratic Party they have adopted the party’s policy of promoting their double standards. Here is a fantastic treatment of the 2nd Amendment by Sanford Levinson at the Austin School of Law, University of Texas. Fortunately for those of us to choose to exercise our 2nd Amendment rights we have organizations such as the NRA and the Institute for Justice that are willing to defend those rights for all Americans. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Is It Time for a Military Solution To Border Control?

In light of this article about the Border Patrol facing an ever increasing number of assaults, is it finally time for the federal government to get serious about border security before more men and women are hurt or killed? Wait let me rephrase that and ask the question that I really want an answer to. Has the time come to permanently station either National Guard or active-duty Army units on the border in order to ensure we finally have a secure border? The answer in my mind is a resounding yes and I will explain why.

The sad fact is that the people on Capital Hill know what a problem illegal immigration has become and how it undermines our national security yet they fail to act in any meaningful way. The facts are out there for all to see including Congress since this link comes from testimony before the House Committee on the Judiciary. Some in Congress remarkably have been on point for a few years; one in particular that deserves praise is Rep. Tom Tancredo from Colorado. He has spent quite a bit on time on the extremely porous Arizona-Mexico border and heads the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus.

Given that many news reports as well as eye witness testimony has shown time after time that the Border Patrol are simply outmanned and soon to be outgunned by coyotes, drug smugglers and all other forms of human trash it time to consider out ways to secure the border besides just throwing money at the problem. The recent Minuteman Project has proven that if you place just observers on the border the flow of traffic can be lower and perhaps even stopped. Imagine how much of an impact could be made if the Minuteman volunteers were replaced by trained border patrol or National Guard or Army that actually could make apprehensions.

The Border Patrol while prohibited from commenting publicly has issued a statement of support for the Minutemen and their effort on their union website. Below is the text.

MINUTEMAN PROJECT: We want to make it clear because we've had a lot of questions about this.....we have not had one single complaint from a rank-and-file agent in this Sector about the Minutemen. Every report we've received indicates these people are very supportive of the rank-and-file agents, they're courteous, many of them are retired firefighters, cops, and other professionals, and they're not causing us any problems whatsoever. Reports of them causing "ground sensors" to go off are exaggerated because most of those are being set off by the ACLU sneaking around trying to find the Minutemen doing something wrong. The Minutemen have succeeded in shifting the bulk of the illegal alien traffic out of the Naco corridor. If only President Bush were so supportive of the rank-and-file agents. While President Bush hangs out thousands of miles away in the White House, these people are willing to give up their time and energy to actually do something. While President Bush entices millions of illegal aliens to keep coming with his amnesty proposals and his demoralizing statements that he doesn't want Border Patrol agents chasing "good-hearted people just coming here to take jobs Americans won't do" the Minutemen are trying to get our laws enforced. The Minutemen have made it very clear that they fully support rank-and-file Border Patrol agents. If only we had such support from the politicians we have to work for (aren't we really supposed to be working for the citizens of this country anyway?)!

Amen! The men and women who place their lives on the line everyday to defend and protect this great country of ours deserve our undying thanks and respect. Those that are opposed to placing military units on the border have nothing to offer in terms of another solution, just there opposition.

Here are some additional reasons to consider placing military units on the border along side the existing Border Patrol. As the world changes from the age of the cold war to the new conflict against global terrorism we will have an extraordinary opportunity to restructure our armed forces. Part of this restructuring could and should include placing either National Guard or regular Army units along both the southern and northern borders. In addition to giving these men and women an opportunity to serve their country closer to home, a sure way to boost morale, think of the enormous economic impact to the border towns that seem to be just hanging on. One of the reasons that the war on drugs has been such a failure is the lack of a secure border, if we effectively close illegal border traffic think of the reduction in drugs that will enter this country. As I see it there is very little downside to placing the military on the border. I don’t really consider upsetting Canada and Mexico a downside since if either country actually controlled their own borders we would be half way to secure American borders.

The Minuteman Project has proven that the border can be secured even if only temporary by average citizens performing a civil duty. The Project has been so successful that one of its founders’s, Jim Gilchrist, is heading to Washington to press for actual enforcement and punishment of companies that hire and employ illegal immigrates. The Minuteman Project will continue through the rest of the month under the direction of the Civil Homeland Defense group headed by Chris Simcox while Mr. Gilchrist presses Washington and makes arrangements to expand the Minuteman Project to additional southern and northern states. The states that have expressed an interest in having a Minuteman Project patrol their borders include New Mexico, California, Texas, Vermont, Michigan and North Dakota.

The time has come for the federal government to either put up or shut up on the issue of illegal immigration. The die has been cast and if needed the American people will answer the call to defend our borders. We need to examine every possible way to secure our borders and thus ensure our national security. The solution is within our grasp as a nation if we can give our leaders the confidence to make the tough decisions. The current plan proposed by President Bush is akin to throwing up our hands and giving up because it is too hard to fix the problem. America is not a nation of quitters and the President’s plan is not the answer. Have a great Wednesday everyone.

France poised to say No to EU

It seems that some in France have awoken from their Socialist slumber and are now on the verge of showing some signs of nationalism. Perhaps this will spread to the rest of Europe and cause their EU masters to rethink plans to move the EU countries towards tighter integration. French President Jacques Chirac is so worried about the referendum vote that he recently took to the airwaves to try and rally support, by most reports he failed. If I was Jack I would be polishing my resume and planning my next job.

The outcome of the vote on ratifying the new version of the EU Constitution is in such a shaky state that some of France’s allies in the EU are starting to be concerned. The approval of the EU Constitution must be unanimous to actually take effect thus the reason for concern. The interesting part for me is that the French government has chosen a message of doom and gloom, publicly declaring that France will die a political death if passage fails, rather then actually explaining why the changes to the EU Constitution will benefit the French people. Wow, that sounds remarkably like the current message of the Democratic Party here in the United States.

The French has far greater threats facing their nation then the encroachment of the EU upon the socialist paradise that we are know France is. How about rising unemployment, currently at a hair north of 10%, stagnant economy, increasingly hostile immigrates from Eastern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East not to mention a diminished role on the world stage. With a falling birth rate and increasing immigration of Muslims it is only a matter of time before France becomes the first European country to “convert” to Islam. I wonder how the anti-war protesters, the one’s that even oppose the fight against international terrorism, will feel once France becomes an upscale Syria or Iran.

As bad as the French have been as an “ally”, it does not bode well for Europe and the United States if the current trends continue and France does in fact become an Islamic state on the mainland of Europe. What a remarkable base of operation France would be for the Islamofascists of the world, perhaps OBL would be march down the Champs-Élysées in some sort of perverted victory parade. Not a sight I want to see. God help the French from themselves because they certainly don’t want our help. Have a great day everyone.

Kerry's Form 180: The Blogburst Edition

John Kerry has never released his military records, in spite of his bragging about being a “war hero", and claiming he would release them soon on the "Meet The Press" television show with Tim Russert and the "Imus in the Morning" show with Don Imus. So let’s encourage him to release his military records to “clear things up".

As a group of concerned citizens who want to hold our leaders accountable we’ve formed a blogburst group to drive the issue home. If you want to join the blogroll for Kerry’s 180, click here to email the group founder, Cao and include the url for your blog. The blogburst is every Tuesday, so don’t forget to blog about it. All you have to do is encourage people to send him his 180, Just ask in your email and Cao will send you the code for the blogroll.

Here's the link to the actual form that he needs to fill out, as you can see there is not really much to it. Hell, I bet even one of his staffers could fill it out for him and make it even easier for him. Folks the simple truth is that like many of the "soldiers" at Kerry's famed Winter Meetings, Kerry lied about his service and because he has made it a centerpiece of his public service his record or lack there of is a issue he must deal with. Join in as we start to send pens to John's office so he can fill out and sign the form. So quote a great American:

"Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win? "

Late Night Hit

Just wanted to thank all those who are visiting from Wizbang and Michelle Malkin's Immigration Blog. Welcome to my world, pull up a chair and stay awhile.

I happen to stumble across this while researching for a post due to be published later in the week. It seems that the forces of Democracy may be getting a foothold in Iran and trying to spread. The government is shutting down Al-Jazeera in Tehran because of their coverage on an uprising of Arabs in Southwestern Iran where 3 people were killed and over 200 arrested by the Iranian Security Forces.

Thank God for freedom of speech and the fact that I live in the United States of America. Iran has a much tougher and longer path to freedom then Iraq and they will need our support at some point. Well, I am off to post tomorrow’s items so goodnight everyone and have a great tomorrow.

Proof That The ACLU Hates The American Military

Once again the ACLU has proved by its actions that it is firmly an Anti-American organization that seems to be dedicated to the destruction of the morals and values that our great country was founded on. The ACLU has taken the case of a man who is offended that on his trips to California that he has to pass solitary Roman cross at the Mojave Desert World War I Veterans Memorial. The ACLU took the case to court and received a destruction order for the cross because a judge turned down a land swap that would have changed the land that the cross sits on from public to private land.

Here is a snippet from the article on this travesty.

The cross, two pipes strapped together and mounted on a rock outcrop in the remote Mojave Desert, was erected by private citizens on what was then private land in order to honor the service of World War I veterans. Bill Clinton incorporated the site in the Forest Service as one of his last acts as president.

Although there had never been a complaint about the veterans memorial cross in more than 70 years, the ACLU seized the opportunity to file a federal suit to destroy it as a violation of the Establishment Clause – and to seek attorney fees under the Civil Rights Act.

It has collected $63,000 in attorney fees so far, although neither it nor the plaintiff, Frank Buono, has any actual attorney fees. Buono is a retired Forest Service employee who moved to Oregon then asked to sue to destroy the cross. He claimed his Civil Rights are violated because he has to see the cross when he drives to California to visit.

The federal court in Riverside is the first in history in which a private citizen has been allowed to sue a veteran’s memorial to remove a religious symbol. Now, the same court has nullified an act of Congress by judicial fiat, and ordered the executive branch to destroy the cross. The two other branches apparently believe themselves impotent when faced with an order by an unelected judge-for-life, answerable to no one.

The fact that the ACLU found a judge to go along with this latest attack on the Christian foundation of this country should surprise no one since this story takes place in the People’s Socialist Nation of California. For 70 years there were no complaints about the cross and would have been that way for another 70 years if not for some wacko getting the feeling that he could sue and win because the ACLU has given “hope” to the horribly oppressed in America. Every time the ACLU sues and an activist judge hands them a victory, it diminishes the moral accomplishment that our Founding Fathers achieved.

The ACLU has seen fit to raise the ante in their mission against America by seeking to include veterans in their fight against Christians. In another report on the ACLU, we find that they are actively working against the national security of this nation be interfering with the military’s ability to recruit new members. Apparently the ACLU thinks that recruiter’s access to high school students should be limited since the recruiters don’t tell the students the full story about military life. Well as someone who has gone through the recruitment process I can tell you that the recruiter does give you more then enough information to make a decision. The gentleman at the heart of the ACLU latest attempt to weaken our country is Orlando Terrazas whose son shocked him by considering a career in the military. His point of view is summed up as follows: deciding to join the military is as important as choosing which college to attend.”

I take some offense to Mr. Terrazas comment. First of all, joining the military is a much greater decision the picking a college. Choosing a college is not a life or death decision and the attempt to equate it to choosing where you going to be drunk for 4 or more years does a great disservice to all who proudly serve. The recruiter’s job is to get people to sign up for the military and as with many things it is a sales job. The explanation of the ramifications is the responsibility of parents and the suggestion by Mr. Terrazas that the recruiter should do that is an example of how parents pass the buck when it comes to dealing with their children. The move to restrict access to both college and high school students from military recruiters has been an on going battle for the last few years. This action by the ACLU only serves to weaken our military and as a direct result, our national security.

Blogburst: Death to the ACLU

Let me make one thing perfectly clear. While Roger Baldwin, the founder of the ACLU, had strong Communist ties and even declared it as his ultimate goal, he was never actually a member of the Communist party.

Unfortunately, the same can not be said about those who joined him to form the organization. His first Board of Directors were Elizabeth Gurly Flynn and William Z. Foster, both of whom would later head the Communist Party in America.

Baldwin was very open about his goals, unlike many of today's ACLU leaders. They try to rewrite Baldwin's history as a simple "flirtation" with Communism that only lasted a brief period.

However, Roger grew up in a family of radicals and socialists, and at the ripe age of fifty he said, "I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the State itself as an instrument for violence and compulsion. I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal."

He made his first trip to Russia in 1923. After returning, in his book Liberty Under the Soviets, Roger admitted that their government had instituted "complete censorship of all means of communications and the complete supression of any organized opposition to the dictatorship or its program."

So, did this supposed champion of civil liberties condemn these actions? Not at all!

He said, "Repression in Western democracies are violations of proffessed constitutional liberties and I condemn them as such. Repressions in Soviet Russia are weapons of struggle in a transition period to Socialsim."

In 1934, Baldwin wrote in the Soviet Russia Today,"When that power of the working class is once achieved, as it has been only in the Soviet Union, I am for maintaining it by any means whatever."

The ACLU reflected this attitude. Of the ACLU Board members elected during its first sixty years, almost eighty percent had Communist affiliations. Ninety percent of its cases involved defending Communists.

As a result, it was labeled a "Communist-Front", and came under the investigation of the House Un-American Activities Committee.

On August 20, 1939 Roger was betrayed by his greatest hero, Josef Stalin. Stalin signed a non-aggression pact with Adolf Hitler.

In 1940, the ACLU felt a need to distance itself from the Communist Party, at least in public perception. In what is known as the 1940 Resolution, the ACLU Board declared it "inappropriate for any person to serve on the governing committees of the Union or its Staff, who is a member of any political organization which supports totalitarian dictatorship in any country, or who by his public declarations indicates his support of such a principle."Source

This was very unfortunate for Elizabeth Gurly Flynn, who was a member of the Communist Party at the time of the 1940 Resolution.

It would be nice if this were the end of the story, however by the mid-1960's the ACLU no longer felt the need to seperate itself from Communism. So, in 1967, the board voted to effectively rescind the 1940 Resolution and welcomed communists back into the Union. They later rescinded Flynn's purge, and elevated her to "hero" status.

They came under investigation again and were debated in Congress in 1961.Source

Despite all the the denials to the contrary, the evidence is overwhelming that the ACLU is still working toward the end goal of Communism.

William Kunstler, as a member of the National Advisory Counsel stated, "I am a double agent, working within the system to bring down the system."

Just study it's policies and case history and it is obvious they still seek Communist and socialist goals.

Unfortunatley, many Americans are still fooled, and hold the members of this organization as heros. In 1981, Jimmy Carter awarded Roger Baldwin the Medal of Freedom-the nation's highest civilian honor.Source

Help us wake America up to the goals of the ACLU! We are trying to raise money to help expose the ACLU through advertisments and commercials. It is very expensive. Please help us with what you can. Visit our Bulldoze The ACLU Store, and buy a bumper sticker. Every little bit helps.
