TN State House Committee votes 5-3 to amend US Constitution, to Calendar and Rules

TN State House Committee votes 5-3 to amend US Constitution, to Calendar and Rules

012716
0734 am

The Tennessee State Government Committee voted yesterday on SJR67, Convention of States resolution.

I am sad to inform you the motion passed 5-3.

It will move on to the Calendar and Rules Committee for another vote possibly next week before going to a full House vote.

Representative Sheila Butt and Mark Meckler both spoke in support of the bill.

At approximately the 17:50 mark of the video, Meckler began spewing forth as many lies as possible that could be placed inside a short time frame. In my opinion, he could have been charged with perjury.

(An analysis and rebuke of the Meckler diatribe is needed. Hopefully a faithful expert reader could provide this information to share.)

Great questions were asked by the Representatives on the committee. Raising questions about a runaway convention, the 2nd Amendment, vetting of the delegates, restraining the delegates, itinerary of a Convention were very appropriate but allowing Meckler and Butt to field the questions and provide one sided answers was a total disservice to the people of Tennessee.

All Representatives speaking voiced that they had received many emails, calls and office visits from both sides of this issue. Thanks to many of my readers and advocates for this service.

It’s sad to report that the voice of the people did not get fully represented here. Although acknowledging much dissent and non support for this bill, the Reps approved the resolution which will now move on to another committee.

Let’s get citizen representatives to the next hearing.

Personal side bar:

During the hearing, not a single voice of opposition was offered. I believe this committee was asking the right questions but a dissenting voice in the room may have meant the difference and swayed the vote to a NO.

We need an Article V expert to stand in the gap and represent the people at the next Calendar and Rules Hearing. Please step forward if this is your calling.

Question for legal experts:

At the 57 to 58 minute mark, after a call for a vote was made, the committee took a small break to discuss a legal issue. In the break, you can see Mark Meckler leave his seat walk to the left of the screen, say something to Representative Butt then Representative Butt nodding her head approaches the committee and speaking with several of the committee members as if to lobby them about an issue they made have had during the hearing.

I was under the assumption that once a vote was called you could not speak to the committee members or offer influence to them. Am I wrong on this issue, please feel free to offer comment on the BCN Comment section below.

TN Legislature set to vote on changing US Constitution, opposition strong

TN Legislature set to vote on changing US Constitution, opposition strong

01222016
1116 am

Next week, January 26, 2016 at noon, our TN State Legislature, via the TN State House Government Committee will be voting on the Senates version of SJR67, the Convention of States legislation to change and or amend our US Constitution. The Senate version led by Senator Mike Bell passed last year.

While I agree this move may be Constitutiinal I do not feel the timing of such a move by our legislators is a safe one.

We have way too many wolves in sheeps clothing ready to trounce on the Constitution once inside chambers to do so creating a potential devastating result.

The risk of a runaway jury is very real. Once inside the deliberation room anything could happen. The process of amending and changing the US constitution could fall into greedy hands not capable or interested in protecting our sacred document which holds our Bill of Rights and the protections on freedom we all enjoy.

Below is a sample letter, please feel to personalize it, to send out to the committee that will be considering placing it up for a vote. We must not let this pass it’s too risky!

Dear Representative,

Please consider saying NO to Tennessee’s SJR67 (COS) being heard on Tuesday January 26, 2016 at Noon in the TN House State Government Committee. I feel this could be very harmful to the integrity of our US Constitution and put our sovereignty at risk. Thank you for this consideration.

Sincerely,

Email blast list of SJR67 Committee Members:
rep.darren.jernigan@capitol.tn.gov,rep.jason.powell@capitol.tn.gov,rep.johnny.shaw@capitol.tn.gov,rep.jeremy.durham@capitol.tn.gov,rep.bud.hulsey@capitol.tn.gov,rep.william.lamberth@capitol.tn.gov,rep.mary.littleton@capitol.tn.gov,rep.bob.ramsey@capitol.tn.gov,rep.bill.sanderson@capitol.tn.gov,rep.curry.todd@capitol.tn.gov

Please share vigorously as our country and its fate may depend upon it!

TN Houses approve resolution to alter US Constitution, Trojan Horse in place at gate of Convention

TN Houses approve resolution to alter US Constitution, Trojan Horse in place at gate of Convention

11142015
0906 am

Both Tennessee Houses have voted and approved bills to apply for a Constitutional Convention of States.

The TN House took up the Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) and approved it in 2014, the TN Senate approved the Conventon of States (COS) resolution in the spring of 2015. The House will vote on the COS resolution in January 2016 when it reconvenes.

The Tennessee State Legislature and Senate Houses have applied to Congress calling for amendments to the US Constitution. This action by our elected representatives could change, alter, eliminate or re-write our most sacred document that defines the freedoms we now partake of daily.

Both resolutions have passed with an overwhelming majority and now we await for a 2/3 majority to call upon Congress to make the Convention a reality once the vote is cast in January of 2016.

The measure can be stopped and We the People still have that ability to call House members and request they not approve the COS resolution in 2016. Time is short. We must be vigilant and expediant.

It is deeply regretful that the bid went forward and We the People did not foresee the many problems that may result from a Constitutional Convention sooner.

“Conservatives” in our State Legislatures by statement of their vote to conduct the process of amending the Constitution have acted irresponsibly.

The left through the years have resigned to the fact they could not do it on their own. They have now enlisted the right to assist them with the changes to the Constitution. The left has co-opted the right and the dance that ensues is a very dangerous and one that could disrupt our nation and hand it over to a New World Order, a much requested venture.

The US Constitution is the only thing keeping the left from creating that global utopian socialist nation under the control of foreign forces dead set on destroying our country.

Amendment changes to the US Constitution is too risky with too many people with the ability to place their paws upon the most precious document that relinquishes to us our God given rights and liberties.

The US Constitution is not yours to subject to the wiles of the left and evil people to do as they please. Leave it alone Mr or Mrs Statesperson.

“Conservatives” are saying that they will only be seeking to inject one amendment at a called convention. This is a lie!

By teaming with the left with its many constitution changing agendas, we know this to be a lie solely on their stated desire to do so.

The right is being used as the Trojan horse that will wheel up to the doors of a Constitutional Convention and to possibly change this document forever.

Let’s watch as that Trojan Horse is discovered.

Once at the gate of the convention the left with cover from their “Conservative” friends will knock on the doors of our rights at the convention. Knock, knock!

Our elected reps, our chosen delegates, once hearing the lustful knock of a combined “right, left” team effort will open that door.

Eyes will be curiously watching as the Trojan Horse will be hauled to a convention of states. Once inside, the belly of the giant will begin to slake and rumble. The trap door will become ajar from the eager vermin more than willing to embark. The horse will release its vile content onto the floor of a called convention.

As the sludge oozes from his belly, the barely recognizable forms will take shape. The surge of force will surely dislodge millions of dollars, several constitutions, special interest subjects and lobbyist and many diverse amendments and a host of other assorted ideologies.

As this Trojan Horse gives birth to its subjects, you begin seeing these delegates, numerous they may be, made up of hundreds of lobbyists and special interest groups they scatter among the convention and the feeding frenzy will ensue.

Once in place, the convention room may be closed off to any spectators, the doors closed and the dismantling ensues.

The speaker will make the call for order and for delegates to place their agendas upon the table. With a great ferocity each demanding their bought and paid for “changes”, the delegates will submit their considerations for adoption.

Each delegate will undoubtedly meet resistance from other better paid delegates and the proverbial chest thump and resulting dance will begin.

One delegate with less money influence will begin the squall of a dying calf, the better funded will strap on his sorosesque rapid fire cannon and lob his influence on to the convention hall. The less powerful will succumb to the monster we shall call a well funded entity.

The right whose eyes have been closed will now begin to open and start to see the lie they were fed, the result of bipartisan support and a blind cohesion with the left. Angst will build and regret shall encompass their sold out core.

The crowd will grow concerned, oddly uncomfortable while watching this three ring circus perform, peering to the right as if to question the lies…

The left will most likely yield the majority of delegates inside this debacle.

The Trojan Horse has been revealed and fearing retribution from opposing delegates they may seize the opportunity at a runaway convention possibly making a move to temporarily suspend state rights providing them immunity from any attempts to prosecute them for the seditious acts that will befall this convention.

We the People disillusioned with the tone and tenor of the convention will surely rise up paving another avenue for Civil unrest.

The Convention event has now lost stability. The “right”that got duped into believing them will now begin to attempt to control the event they helped create. A lengthy spin cycle with damage control will ensue, but it’s too little, too late.

Posturing from all sides, lobbyists and insiders will be breathing heavily as they run from aisle to aisle looking for a compromise or expansion of amendments.

The fear of a runaway or perpetual Convention has been realized. The right and the left have now become the same.

Upon exiting the chaotic convention one regretful patriot will inevitably emerge from Independence Hall on that fateful day reminiscent of that chilly fall day in 1787 when Ben Franklin departed the last convention.

A lady from the crowd lunges forward and yells “Dr what do we have a Republic or a Monarchy?” The response from the patriot will more than likely be “A New World Order under Parlimentary control by the UN, whether you want it or not!”

Ladies and gentlemen we are on the verge of some serious attacks on our US Constitution. The realization of a hostile takeover and destruction of our Constitution is just a Convention away.

The false assumption that an Article V Convention of States is benign is false. Yes, the Article V is Constitutional. But to question its intent and the timing of this call for a Convention is worth some serious contemplation.

The end result, regardless of how you word it, the US Constitution will suffer a great hit or be abolished all together inside a convention of delegates that may not share our vision of how we should live our lives under the protections given us.

Regardless of how you approach it, it could be a potential disaster, one that I’m not willing to watch happen.

Sure, in a perfect world I would love to think only one change will be performed upon the Constitution but the buzzards circling tells me otherwise.

Our forefathers didn’t provide a whole lot of instruction for delegates and the way a convention was to be run. This may have been purposeful but they may have underestimated the enormity of the attack and those dead set on changing it to their defined objective.

As a matter of fact we have never had a state led Amendment Convention. There is no example of us to follow, no precedence to lean on for guidance, only a slew of people wanting the same thing…..their amendment to be the one that gets the ok that leads to passage. This is an unmanageable issue that is too risky to ascertain.

This is not Tennessee’s first attempt to call on Congress to make amendment changes. In fact, I believe Tennessee has made three prior requests for a Constitutional Convention. There is a valid reason why Tennessee through the years has denied and rescinded this issue. It undeniably leaves the United States very vulnerable to the wiles of those willing to subjugate our sovereignty.

In 2010, Tennessee rescinded all calls for a Con Con. Even the RNC under the leadership of Reince Preibus called upon legislators to STOP the push for a CON CON, fearing the Trojan Horse scenario above would result.

The RNC, the Republican National Committee, condemned all attempts to change our US Constitution and urged our Tennessee elected representatives to stand down from all efforts because of the inherent damage doing so could do to our country and our state.

On August 22nd,2012 the RNC unleashed this WARNING to all legislators.

WHEREAS, the Constitution is also silent as to the agenda of such a Convention and sets out no way to limit the agenda of such a Convention, and,

WHEREAS, former U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger concluded that there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention after it is convened; and,

WHEREAS, a Constitutional Convention would attract a multitude of individuals and special interest groups with agendas that would alter our Constitution beyond recognition….

Surprisingly two years later, despite this warning from their own party, our Tennessee reps have applied for a CON CON against their own party. What happened between 2012 and 2014?

You would suspect that this warning, this direction, would be enough to sway those in elected seats to halt their pursuit of a Constitutional Convention. It is akin to the constant consultation you give to your children that do not heed your advice.

In 2014, the current State Legislature took up the call to Congress as well as the State Senate in 2015 under the tutelage of Senator 9th District Mike Bell to conduct a Constitutional Convention.

Interestingly, some of the same legislators calling for a recision and repeal in 2010 voted for it in 2014 and 2015. Im only speculating but it looks as if special interest groups and lobbyist did a number on our elected reps in TN perhaps placing a little greenback into their personal coffers.

Why else would a Tennessee State Legislator or Senator buck the advice of their own party as they have in Tennessee? It’s worth consideration.

This frequent waffling, flip flopping and resistance on the same subject has to have some big money behind it. What else would make them turn one way one year and another way against the advice of their own party in 2014 and 2015. Sounds to me like a few prodigal sons need to find their way home.

Meanwhile we wait for other states to approve the applications for a CON CON as TN did or we stand against these wayward legislators tampering with our freedom and subjecting us to the possibility of propping up a new government that will equate to a socialist dump with all the non perks that go with that decision.

This is serious bidding and the health of our state, our nation and its people are at risk!

Call your state legislators to either say NO to a CON CON or rescind the application to make a call to Congress for a Convention.

Your country and your freedoms depend on your action or your silent consent.

You make that decision.

I’m only informing you of the risk and the potential result! My self prescribed duty is done.

Open letter to all state legislators: The other side of the Article V issue

Open letter to state legislators everywhere: The other side of the Article V convention issue

By Publius Huldah

If there is an Article V convention, we will lose the Constitution we have, and another Constitution will be imposed.

You are not getting both sides of this issue.

Throughout the country, those of us who are warning of the dangers of an Article V convention are marginalized, ridiculed, smeared, shut out of meetings, and barred from speaking in public forums. This short essay from the Principled Policy Blog describes what we face every day.

http://www.principledpolicy.com/an-article-v-convention-fact-vs-theory/

The article (below) is an account by Donny Harwood, a citizen of Tennessee, describing how he was shut out of the public meeting which the Convention of States people held on October 19, 2015, at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

https://bradleycountynews.wordpress.com/2015/10/20/concerned-citizen-ousted-from-convention-of-states-meeting-deemed-a-potential-disruptive-threat/#comments

According to the Leaf-Chronicle, a number of Tennessee legislators were at the meeting. A prominent Tennessee radio talk show host was also present.

http://www.theleafchronicle.com/story/news/2015/10/19/tn-legislators-discuss-constitutional-convention/74237544/

And everyone at the meeting was prevented from hearing the other side of this issue.

The reason convention proponents forbid dissenting voices is that we prove, by means of facts and original source documents, that the claims and promises of the convention proponents are false. Here are some of the original source documents legislators would hear about if they were presented with the other side of this issue.

https://publiushuldah.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/exhibits-to-publius-huldah-speech-in-lebanon-tn-june-22-2015.pdf

We are in the final stage of a takeover. Leftists of every variety want a new Constitution to legalize our transformation from the constitutional Republic created by our existing Constitution to a dictatorship.

To get a new Constitution, they need a convention. So they are telling conservatives that our Constitution is causing our problems and we need to amend the Constitution. And they say we can only make the amendments they say we need at a convention.

Article V of our Constitution provides two methods of amending our Constitution:

Congress Proposes amendments,

or

Calls a convention to propose amendments if 34 States apply for it.

The first method was used for our existing 27 amendments: Congress proposed them and sent them to the States for ratification or rejection.

Under the second method, Congress calls a convention. We have never had a convention under Article V. Such conventions are extremely dangerous. This is one of many articles which illustrate the danger, sets forth warnings from two of our Framers and two former US Supreme Court Justices, and explains why Delegates to a convention can NOT be controlled by State laws.

http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/huldah/150119

National conventions are dangerous because the Delegates have the plenipotentiary power to impose a new Constitution with a new mode of ratification. The video by Chuck Michaelis (below) explains these plenipotentiary powers.

http://www.principledpolicy.com/an-article-v-convention-fact-vs-theory/

Such Delegates are the Sovereign Representatives of The People and have the power to impose a new Constitution. This has already happened in our history:
At the Federal Convention of 1787, this plenipotentiary power was exercised to replace our first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation, with the Constitution we now have.

On February 21, 1787, The Continental Congress called a convention “for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation.” But instead of proposing amendments to our first Constitution, the Delegates wrote a new Constitution – the one we now have.

Furthermore, the new Constitution had a new and easier mode of ratification: Article XIII of The Articles of Confederation (p 8-9) provided that Amendments to the Articles had to be approved by the Continental Congress and all of the then 13 States. But the new Constitution, drafted at the “amendments” convention of 1787, provided at Art. VII thereof that it would be ratified upon approval by only nine of the then existing 13 States.

http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llsl&fileName=001/llsl001.db&recNum=127

So! Not only do Delegates to a national convention have this plenipotentiary power to impose a new Constitution; the precedent to do so has already been established.

The Left has been pushing for a convention for 50 years – ever since the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations produced the Constitution for the Newstates of America. They need a convention to get it imposed.

Several other Constitutions are already prepared and waiting for a convention.

If there is a convention, the only issues will be (1) whose Constitution will be imposed by the Delegates; and (2) what new mode of ratification will be set forth in the new Constitution.

The Constitution for the Newstates of America imposes a totalitarian dictatorship. Article XII, § 1 thereof provides for ratification by a Referendum called by the President. The States are dissolved and replaced by regional governments answerable to the new national government.

http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/concon/newstates.htm#.VkPs8V88KnP

The Revolutionary Communist Party USA has a Constitution for The New Socialist Republic in North America.

http://revcom.us/socialistconstitution/index2.html

George Soros, Marxist law professors all over the Country, Cass Sunstein and Eric Holder want a Marxist Constitution in place by the year 2020.

http://keywiki.org/index.php/Constitution_2020

The “Convention of States” project wants a “re-written” Constitution which legalizes powers the federal government has already usurped, and delegates new powers to the federal government such as total power over children. Yet they are telling conservatives that they want a convention so they can get amendments “to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government”!

http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/huldah/140415

Under the planned North American Union, Canada, the United States, and Mexico will surrender their sovereignty to a Parliament set over the three countries.

The United States will need a new Constitution to transform us from a sovereign nation to a member state of the North American Union. This is what the Establishment wants. And it is being imposed on us by stealth. Read the Task Force Report of the Council on Foreign Relations (below) And to see how the European Union is working out for the formerly sovereign nations of Europe, watch this 7.5 minute video by Pat Condell.

http://noisyroom.net/blog/2015/10/26/the-decline-and-fall-of-the-european-union-pat-condell/

In the past, conservatives defeated the periodic pushes for a convention. So the Left changed tactics: Now, they are marketing it to appeal to conservatives: they are telling conservatives that a convention is the only way to rein in the federal government. These leftists, some wearing conservatives’ clothing, are using the classic techniques of the Left: They are not telling the truth; they are smearing their opponents; and they have divided conservatives. Conservatives who fell for the marketing have been induced to attack and exclude conservatives who are warning of the dangers of a convention. And they won’t let us address their groups.

Our existing Constitution really was a 5,000 year miracle. We delegated only a handful of enumerated powers to the federal government – you can see what we delegated below,

https://publiushuldah.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/chart-showing-federal-structure-3-1-part-a2.pdf

Our Constitution doesn’t need “fixing” – we need to restore the Constitution we already have. We begin the Restoration by reading and learning our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. And enforcing it! See, in this regard, the Tenth Amendment Center’s 2015 State of the Nullification Movement Report.

For the Love of God and Country, heed this warning.

Very truly yours,

Ted Cruz’s eligibility: A civics lesson for the uninformed

Ted Cruz’s eligibility: A civics lesson for the uninformed

3/25/15
0852 am

Rarely do I find and share an article in my blog. I found this gem while researching Ted Cruz’s eligibility and his status as a Natural Born Citizen. 

I was going to write another article based on my collective research data but declared that this article was so well written and so easy to understand that I would not improve upon the content and I would be remiss to not share it with my readers in it’s entirety. 

I hope you will support the website below and visit their site often as it has many other fantastic blog entries.

Enjoy as I did.

Laws, Codes and Eligibility – A Civics Lesson

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on cprworldwidemedia.net

Ted Cruz, as a matter of LAW and U.S. Codes…IS indeed qualified AND eligible to run for the office of president.

The Constitution, clearly states that to serve as president, one must be 35 years of age, one must have resided in the United States for at least 14 years and that one must be a Natural Born Citizen. Just as clearly, the Constitution never defines Natural Born Citizen nor do any of our founding documents but…later laws and codes DO.

The Supreme Court, which has NEVER entertained a case based on NBC and therefore, never issued any DECISION regarding NBC has, for a very long time, held that a Natural Born Citizen or…NBC…is one who is a Citizen at Birth or…CaB.

Further…the SCOTUS has long held that NBC includes those born in the United States or abroad to parents of a U.S. citizen.

Now don’t go all plural on me here as I will explain this.

British Common Law held that children, whether born on British soil or abroad were subjects of the crown if their parents were subjects of the crown and our founders and framers certainly recognized this.

The First Congress stated as a matter of law via The Naturalization Act of 1790 “the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.”

Yes…I know that Ted Cruz’s father was not a U.S. citizen but…this is not the end of the line in our civics lesson. Far from it in fact. The Naturalization Act of 1790 also included children whose MOTHERS were U.S. citizens so long as the FATHER had, at least, been a RESIDENT of the United States…so as not to follow British patriarchy standards used for the purpose of the monarchy.

Later, congress would strike the differentiation so that any child, born in the U.S. or abroad, with the residency requirement intact and A parent being a U.S. citizen would be legally…a Natural Born Citizen.

This is backed up by the Nationality Act of 1940 which clearly states: “In the absence of such legitimation or adjudication , the child, whether born before or after the effective date of this Act, if the mother had the nationality of the United States at the time of the child’s birth , and had previously resided in the United States or one of its outlying possessions, shall be held to have acquired at birth her nationality status.”

The Nationality Act of 1940 also shows that those born either within the United States or outside the United States (the latter being of note to Ted Cruz) to at least one parent (at least ONE parent) who was a United States citizen at the time of that child’s birth allows the conveying of that citizen parent’s United States citizenship to the child.

And as I stated yesterday…”While the Act of 1940 has been amended several times…the particular law in effect between 1952 and 1986 which covers Ted Cruz’s birth in 1970 shows that a child born either inside or outside the United States must have a (that would be “A” and not two) citizen parent who resided in the United States for at least 10 years, including five after the age of 14, in order to be considered a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.”

Congratulations Mrs. Cruz…you are the proud mother of a U.S. Natural Born Citizen baby boy.

But wait…there’s more…

I refer you to §1401. Nationals and citizens of United States at birth

You can read it here in the link provided.
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1401

So…congress, backed by long-standing recognition of the United States Supreme Court has held that being a Citizen at Birth is one and the same as being a Natural Born Citizen and since that recognition has also been held by the Harvard Law Review as well as Constitutional scholars and numerous law professors as well as valid U.S. laws and Codes…

Ted Cruz, because his mother, meeting every requirement, conveyed HER citizenship on her son Ted…at birth…and every law on the books both then and today along with existing U.S. code IS…INDEED…ELIGIBLE to run for and hold the office of President of the United States of America.

The fact that Ted Cruz was born in Canada has absolutely NO legal bearing on this whatsoever. None. Zilch. ZERO. His birth certificate is a legal document showing the time and location of his birth but does NOTHING to establish his citizenship in any way.

U.S. laws and U.S. code…some of it going all the way back to the founders and framers who served in the First Congress of the United States makes this VERY clear. And for those who continue to scream “CONSTITUTION…THE CONSTITUTION CLEARLY SAYS”…please remember THIS part of it…“This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land…”

It may not be what some folks want to hear…it may not be what they want to know or admit but…while you may not LIKE the laws…you must ABIDE by the laws. Support whoyou like but…Ted Cruz’s eligibility is a matter of U.S. LAW and U.S. CODES…not the stuff of false libertarian or liberal talking points.

During yesterday’s little nonsense firestorm, I implored those citing the “CRUZ AIN’T ELIGIBLE” nonsense to provide links to ANY U.S. laws or codes that would back them up.

None could…simply because no such laws or codes exist. All they did was repeat the same false narrative over and over again and, they continued to cite SCOTUS cases that had not one single thing to do with NBC at all…again…because no such case has ever been heard by the Supreme Court.

Here’s just one more little but important tidbit…

Since Cruz’s father had been a resident of the United States…Ted would have, by the Naturalization Act of 1790…been considered a Natural Born Citizen in accordance to the words of the Constitution and thus eligible to run for and hold the office he currently seeks. And by the way… One last thing in answer to all those who desperately and falsely try to compare Cruz to Obama…because they consider Cruz a threat to their one and only candidate of choice…the exact same laws and codes that make Cruz eligible…make Obama INELIGIBLE because Obama’s mother did NOT meet the requirements outlined here.

Thus ends our civics lesson.

BCN Note:

Although I feel it will be a longshot for Cruz to win the nomination mostly because many within his own party will do everything within their power to make sure he is never President of the US. He does not tow the typical moderate line and will not be a puppet for the puppet masters to manipulate. 

With that said, I do feel it is our duty to allow the Republic of the USA to render any subjects that qualify to run for President to participate.

To negate a Natural Born Citizen from running for President would be totally against the intent of our forefathers and would minimize their protective measures taken many years ago to give any natural born citizen the right to be President of the greatest country on Earth.

Sooooo… Run Cruz, run reader, run NBC it’s your right, it’s your duty.

Now, move ahead with the knowledge to inform others and pass this article to a friend.

Tea Party of Bradley County says it’s first amendment rights have been violated

In Uncategorized on August 9, 2012 at 9:31 AM

Perilous times are upon our city and county. Basic God given rights are being threatened on a consistent basis.

Our enthroned government has become so presumedly powerful that the general citizenry is now becoming fearful of its entity of government. Any resistance to it’s force is viewed upon as hate speech or being contrary. Defending against tyranny, restoring a lost republic, pursuing life, liberty and happiness is no longer viewed upon as valiant or brave, but pitiful by it’s elected representatives.

Recent actions to limit free speech upon it’s citizens by a runaway government is indicative of the times of the day where citizen participation in matters of freedom are frowned upon.

We have seen government abuse and it is very ugly. The sadness of this reality outweighs the strength of those words.

People are being criminalized and marginalized in Cleveland Tennessee by our elected representatives for portraying the actions set forth by our forefathers which among other subjects gives us the right to free speech.

When, on June 18th, 2012 this mayor and his court took a vital liberty from it’s citizens by passing a resolution 7 to 0 to basically hunt down, expose and imprison law abiding citizens for exercising free speech.

A travesty was committed and a protected innocence taken away by an assembly of men well intended to disperse and quash free speech in Cleveland Tennessee. Feeling threatened by your citizenry for challenging bad policy should never be reprimanded in a public or private setting with freedom stealing resolutions.

Free speech is being perceived as a threat instead of a reassurance of our inalienable rights and the people mocked for exercising our rights.

Let it be known that no entity or establishment of government will stifle, delay, quash or eliminate our most basic right as a free people.

Reverse the recent resolution that took away our rights and replace it with a confirmation of our free speech rights.

Our leaders witnessing this debacle should be standing side by side with the people making these demands. Our leaders should be rallying to the aid of their people being stripped of their rights. Instead, we stand and gaze from a comfortable distance as the slaying ensues.

Where are the supporters of freedom. Shame on any man that adds to our demise by doing nothing. Why are detractors in abundance when it’s people are quashed. This phenomenon may only be realized when our detractors have all our rights in their fists!

Freedom once lost is exactly that, lost!

The only thing that is standing between inprisonment and freedom for its people are these very well written constraints below, that at the moment still rule the land.

United States Constitution, First Amendment:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
― (United States) Congress

Tennessee State Constitution:

Article 1, § 19. Freedom of speech and press; defamation

That the printing presses shall be free to every person to examine the proceedings of the Legislature; or of any branch or officer of the government, and no law shall ever be made to restrain the right thereof. The free communication of thoughts and opinions, is one of the invaluable rights of man, and every citizen may freely speak, write, and print on any subject, being responsible for the abuse of that liberty. But in prosecutions for the publication of papers investigating the official conduct of officers, or men in public capacity, the truth thereof may be given in evidence; and in all indictments for libel, the jury shall have a right to determine the law and the facts, under the direction of the court, as in other criminal cases.

Bradley County Tea Party says its rights abused

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Tea Party of Bradley County members are warning the Cleveland City Council not to interfere with their right to free speech.
On June 18, the City Council voted for a resolution supporting a city police investigation into the distribution of leaflets in South Cleveland. The anonymous leaflets, left on doors and porches, warned that a city renewal plan meant taking over about 300 homes in that area and tearing them down.

Alarmed people who contacted City Hall were told that was not true.
After the council’s vote to find out who distributed the leaflets, tea party members came forward and admitted doing so.
Police Chief Wes Snyder sent a memo to the council, stating there were no criminal violations and that the tea party members’ right to speak could not be restrained.

On Monday, attorney Stuart James, on behalf of the Tea Party of Bradley County, sent a warning letter to the council and announced he wants to address its members at their next meeting Monday.
“As you know, political free speech is protected by the Tennessee and United States constitutions,” James wrote in the letter. “Although free speech is not an absolute right, free speech is protected. Moreover, free speech is protected from retaliatory actions by governmental bodies, such as the City Council. “Therefore, any resolution attempting to undermine those rights is in and of itself, constitutionally suspect. Moreover, the City Council may have exceeded its authority and may have violated the Constitution of the United States of America and the Tennessee Constitution attempting to pass a resolution designed to stop the exercise of free speech.”

Donny Harwood, president of the Tea Party of Bradley County, said Wednesday the group is being proactive.

“That’s a great portion of what we do, getting information to the public,” he said. “We can let them trample on our right to free speech or we can take a stand.”

Mayor Tom Rowland said Wednesday the city has no response, but James is welcome to speak to the council.

“We did receive the letter,” he said. “There were some inaccuracies in it.”

The county, Cleveland and Charleston hired a consultant to look at growth potential through 2035 and a batch of proposals came out of that study, but no final plan has been suggested or discussed.
There may be future opposition to the renewal plan, as well, James wrote in the letter.
“Any actions by the City Council to quash or quell free speech will be met with the appropriate response to enforce and protect the rights of individuals and organizations to exercise their free speech,” the letter stated.
James asked the council to repeal the previous resolution and adopt instead a resolution calling for protection of free speech in Cleveland.

Rowland routinely invites anyone not on the council’s meeting agenda to comment at the beginning of the official sessions. The council meets Monday at 1 p.m. for a work session and at 3 p.m. for its official voting session.
