The REAL Untouchables

Image

 

Anyone who has observed the Obama Administration in action knows who the real Untouchables are.  There are enough scandals in this administration to make a gangster or gang-banger blush!  Many feel that our president has more leniency than Elliot Ness did not just in real life, but in the film and series of the same name: The Untouchables.

Looking at our president alone, we have different words and actions that many say violate his Congress-given laws as President of the United States:

  • Many Americans feel he recently overturned a long-standing policy that we will not negotiate with terrorists.
  • “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance, to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating,” the president said. 
  • The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued a 47-page ruling Jan. 25, 2013 upholding the U.S. Constitution against Executive branch violation of the Constitutional separation of powers, in its ruling that President Obama violated the Constitution in making recess appointments when the Senate was, indeed, in session.
  • Monday, in a 248 to 163 vote, the US House of Representatives turned on President Obama by invoking the War Powers Resolution to prohibit funding U.S. military operations in Libya. The House adopted an amendment to a military appropriations bill to end what some Congressional leaders have called Obama’s dictatorship and behaving like a king.
  • “…the president again violated the separation of powers, and this is becoming something of a serial violation for the president,” and was a “shot across the bow” in many areas of presidential power.
  • Appointment of a “shadow government” of some 35+ individuals termed “czars” who are not confirmed by the Senate and respond only to the president, yet have overarching regulatory powers – a clear violation of the separation of powers concept. Obama bypassed the Senate with many of his appointments of over 35 “czars.”

And there are many more supposed violations that I found on the web.  

I say:  “If all of these accusations are true, then why is he still in the Oval Office?  Either we have a Congress that does not have enough integrity and backbone to do the right thing, or many people are simply ignorant of Constitutional Law.  Either way, why the hell can’t we all just get along?”

As for Nancy Pelosi, the only thing I can think of — right off the bat — is that she is battier than a donkey on heroin.  But here is what I found:  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Saturday called the recent in-pouring of Central Americans across the U.S. border an “opportunity” rather than a “crisis” — and added a personal desire of hers.

I say:  “Why the hell should we reward illegal aliens for breaking our laws?  To me, this is just asinine.”

As for Harry Reid, the only thing I can blame him for is being stupid.  But that is not against the law.  When I consulted the Web, I found:  

  • Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid dedicated a page on his official Senate website attacking private citizens, Charles and David Koch, the libertarian business leaders and philanthropists, and that action may be backfiring on Reid.  The Louisiana GOP (LAGOP) says that action, and others by Reid, violate Senate ethics rules which specifically prohibit using the official websites with the Senate.gov domain for partisan political campaign purposes.
  • The Washington Examiner reports “Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has received campaign contributions from people and political action committees linked to multiple companies suspected of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.”

And this brings us to Hillary Clinton:  Even while the congressional investigations were being conducted, FOX News came out with an exclusive report about many weapons, vehicles and supplies were stolen by Libyan jihadists.  In fact, according to Fox News, a former American-built training camp, abandoned (not destroyed) by U.S. forces which left the country after the Benghazi debacle, has now been over-run and is being used by jihadists to train terrorists!

The Obama administration response to Benghazi remains horrendous, at best.

At Thursday’s Congressional investigation, Democratic Congressmen walked out of the room while victim families were testifying.  While at the same time, Hillary Clinton granted an interview with the New York Magazine which continued to “whitewash” the entire Benghazi scandal!

I say:  “To me this is quite appalling if it is true.  People died, for crying out loud!”

Overall, I feel that people in such positions of government should be held to a higher standard, since they represent all Americans.  Whenever we permit people in these positions to violate the Constitution, then we are no longer American, in my humble opinion.  Our Forefathers in history, though not perfect by any means, stood against oppression, and many of their brethren died fighting for the very American ideals that are noted in this historic and sacred document.  

I’m not saying that we need to take up arms against our Nation.  I’m just saying that our government is supposed to be democratic, and not a monarchy.  Many people I’ve spoken to claim that we live in a much different time than our Forefathers.  But the documents upon which we base our laws contain timeless principles.  Sure, slavery is no longer around as it was then, but Amendments have been taken to account for all of this.  

Once we allow government officials to become untouchable, then we fail in epic proportions as Americans.  The government answers to We the People, not the other way around.  If our President has indeed violated the law, then hopefully our system will try him and punish him for it.  But as of lately, I keep hearing about transgressions with no ramifications.  According to the latest news, John Boener sued the president.  But we’ll just have to wait and see if it goes anywhere.  Strangely enough, it’s almost as if he and all in his cabinet are untouchable.

Only 1 Week Left!

After July 4th, the price of the “2018: An Uncivil War” e-book (published by Phil Sanderson) goes back up to $2.99…so please jump on this deal while you can!  

The book has gotten almost complete top ratings.  To date, the only one rating that was not a 5-Star was a 4-Star.  And we’ve yet to talk to a single reader who did not like the book.  So 99 cents is a great price for a great read!  

In this story, the United States plunges into its 2nd American Civil War after the nation becomes completely divided over the issue of gun rights, and the federal government decides to repeal the Second Amendment.  Two best friends — both Marine Corps veterans who happen to be on opposite sides of the gun debate — and a politically-minded patriotic rock star decide to do all they can to preserve their country in a manner befitting of the United States Constitution.  

Here’s a message from author Phil Sanderson, a former Marine himself:  “I hope you will thoroughly enjoy this novel.  It was written in response to the many attacks upon the Second Amendment and shows a realistic picture of what our nation would look like if it ever did become completely divided over the issue of gun rights.  I’ve done my best to accurately portray both sides of the debate as fairly as possible within this, my very first, body of fictional work based on historical facts.

Please purchase your copy at the 99-cent price point before it goes back up!  It can be purchased at the following sites:

Character Reveal: Cliff

Image

Cliff is a disgraced paranormal investigator who once had his own television show on the Discovery Channel.  But when its ratings started to decline, Cliff’s associate producer talked him into using props to steal some ratings back.  But when the same “friend” turned around and blew the whistle on him, claiming no involvement himself, Cliff’s show was tanked.  And all funds that would have been used to produce future episodes was diverted to the very one who betrayed him.

Now, most people who know of him hold him in contempt of honor.  They feel he is a joke and a coward for having attempted to take the easy way out and doing it in such an insulting and deceptive manner.  But he does still have a few loyal supporters.  It is one of these supporters who gives him the opportunity to salvage his reputation by permitting him to take point an a very important investigation in Montgomery, Alabama: the “Girl on the Highway”.  

Character Reveal: Amanda

Great news for those of you who are just as excited about The Girl on the Highway as I am!  I just finished Part 2 — Paved with Good Intentions.  It is quickly shaping up to be the most exciting story I’ve ever written!  For your enjoyment, here is a sample from within this latest part I just completed.  Please enjoy!

She found herself comforted by the fact that Cliff’s voice was coming from directly behind her.  Then she felt the temperature suddenly drop!  Her sweat suit was no longer warm enough for her.  She felt Cliff’s left hand reach for her right one, and she took it, feeling a bit creepy by the strange temperature effect.  Cliff’s hand felt very soft, but quite chilly.   “I bet it was the drop in temperature that set the thermometer sensor off a minute ago.”

She heard Cliff’s voice overtaking her to her left, causing her to do the double take.  “You feel it, huh?”

How the hell did he…wait…I still have his hand…she slowly turned to look at the hand within her own.  And she saw a blonde-haired girl, surrounded by a dull light and dressed in a pale overcoat.

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all my fellow Dads out there! For those of you who still have fathers who are with us, please honor them with your time today. For every day they breathe is a true blessing that should never be taken for granted! And for those whose fathers have passed, please honor their memories today by being someone to whom they can be very proud. Most importantly, Fathers Day is not the only day we should do all of this. 🙂
