Justifiable Nullification!

“If you connect the notion of Rights to that of personnel interest,which is the only immutable point in the human heart,then the only way to govern is through fear”. I believe that was John Adams.

And fear is the way that the federal government likes to rule,we’re all terrorist so they have to grope and man-handle you and your loved ones,new labels on cigarettes with graphic pictures on them to scare you not to smoke,the drug war has made anyone that that wants a little relief from certain aliments that  the use of marijuna helps relieve,a criminal,the new rules from the FDA,FCC,EPA are all meant to scare you into thinking that “OH MY GOD IF WE DON’T PASS THIS….”then we’re all going to died or be destitute.

Sen. Rand Paul challenges TSA chief

WASHINGTON (June 22, 2011) – Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) unmasked the inane nature of the standards guiding TSA checkpoint procedures during a Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee meeting Wednesday. (FULL VIDEO BELOW)

“Currently the invasive pat-down searches are random and not based on risk assessment?” Paul asked John Pistole.

Speaking typical bureaucratic gobbledygook, the administrator of the Transportation Security Administration at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security indicated that they were, but they weren’t.

Or something.

“No, actually they are based on intelligence that we know specifically from Christmas Day, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the way he concealed that device. There are some random pat-downs if that’s what you’re referring to, but it is based on intelligence.”

The ridiculous nature of the response apparently wasn’t lost on Paul.

Redefining War Downwards

cross-posted from The Beacon

So let me get this straight. Obama is not in his actions in Libya violating the War Powers Resolution, passed in 1973, because Libya doesn’t count as a war? You can’t make this stuff up. It goes without saying that if Bush had done something so brazen, Obama and many of his other left-liberal critics would have likely — and correctly — called him out on it.

Arguably, even Bush did not do anything quite so bold regarding presidential warmaking. Now, under the Constitution, I believe that the Iraq war was also unconstitutional, for Congress never formally declared the war. But the federal legislature did, at least, empower Bush through a resolution to wage war on his own terms. This was a despicable forfeiture of constitutional authority, and many have compellingly argued that Gulf War II was no less unconstitutional, despite Congress’s passage of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002. Yet Obama has been even more explicit in his rejection of procedural niceties than Bush, for, after having argued that the administration’s conduct of the Libya war was legal under the sixty-day grace period afforded to the president under the War Powers Resolution, the administration switched gears and argued that operations in Libya were not bound by the 1973 Act at all. The last president to demonstrate such temerity was Clinton, in regard to Kosovo. But this is perhaps even worse, as Clinton didn’t play the American people for quite the fools as Obama is doing.
