Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in Justice

This stuff just won’t go away and keeps getting worse by time. The DOJ are bringing up these suits and then blackmailing (read corruption) to slide this “slush money” over to radical liberal organization to lessen the final monetary impact imposed. This is the same DOJ that wants to prosecute, fine and/or jail “climate change” deniers. Who would deny climate change? I noticed that the climate has changed from a week ago and instead of constant rain it is now sunny and hot. Oh, they must be talking about global warming. I think there are very few warming trends other than like China, where the smog keeps all the heat in. But the government should support organizations like La Raza……with OUR money. And what is up with all these Mexican flags at these Trump protests? Why are Mexicans, in America, protesting OUR political candidates? Could we do that in other countries with an American flag? Not hardly. But we will give these people money to continue their tirades of hate towards…..what?

We can change these issues by changing the lawless organizations of our government that have been allowed to suppress the American citizen while adding our enemies and other illegal foreigners. I have had some fun lately allowing liberals to show their ignorance about our country’s laws and the liberal mindset. They stutter when faced with the truth and revert to name calling and cussing. Fortunately it is short lived in my presence because I have that kind of look that make you believe I will stomp your ass. Hey, it is just a look but it can be intimidating and it serves me well. Then again, I can be moved towards stomping your ass also. Much better exercise than a heavy bag at the gym. Can you tell that I am pretty much fed up with liberal bullshit?

Is Donald Trump the perfect candidate? No. But he is the best option we will have in November. If either Sec. Clinton or Sen. Sanders wins in November, they would appoint progs to the Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg is 83, and will probably retire within the next few years. Justice Kennedy is 79, and Justice Breyer is 77. The next president may have the opportunity to appoint four Supremes.

We cannot allow a President Clinton or a President Sanders to make those appointments.

Which is why Gov. McAwful issued an executive order allowing ex-cons to vote. He knows that ex-cons will vote for demonrats because ex-cons have a history of making bad decisions.

That Gov. McAwful has not fulfilled his constitutional obligations in this matter does not matter to progs — laws and constitutions never matter to progs. That’s why criminals are progs.

Let’s look at thelaw as it pertains to the normal way voting rights are restored:

§ 53.1-231.2. Restoration of the civil right to be eligible to register to vote to certain persons.
Bills amending this Section
This section shall apply to any person who is not a qualified voter because of a felony conviction, who seeks to have his right to register to vote restored and become eligible to register to vote, and who meets the conditions and requirements set out in this section.

Any person, other than a person (i) convicted of a violent felony as defined in § 19.2-297.1 or in subsection C of § 17.1-805 and any crime ancillary thereto, (ii) convicted of a felony pursuant to §§ 18.2-248, 18.2-248.01, 18.2-248.1, 18.2-255, 18.2-255.2 or § 18.2-258.02, or (iii) convicted of a felony pursuant to § 24.2-1016, may petition the circuit court of the county or city in which he was convicted of a felony, or the circuit court of the county or city in which he presently resides, for restoration of his civil right to be eligible to register to vote through the process set out in this section. On such petition, the court may approve the petition for restoration to the person of his right if the court is satisfied from the evidence presented that the petitioner has completed, five or more years previously, service of any sentence and any modification of sentence including probation, parole, and suspension of sentence; that the petitioner has demonstrated civic responsibility through community or comparable service; and that the petitioner has been free from criminal convictions, excluding traffic infractions, for the same period.

If the court approves the petition, it shall so state in an order, provide a copy of the order to the petitioner, and transmit its order to the Secretary of the Commonwealth. The order shall state that the petitioner’s right to be eligible to register to vote may be restored by the date that is 90 days after the date of the order, subject to the approval or denial of restoration of that right by the Governor. The Secretary of the Commonwealth shall transmit the order to the Governor who may grant or deny the petition for restoration of the right to be eligible to register to vote approved by the court order. The Secretary of the Commonwealth shall send, within 90 days of the date of the order, to the petitioner at the address stated on the court’s order, a certificate of restoration of that right or notice that the Governor has denied the restoration of that right. The Governor’s denial of a petition for the restoration of voting rights shall be a final decision and the petitioner shall have no right of appeal. The Secretary shall notify the court and the State Board of Elections in each case of the restoration of the right or denial of restoration by the Governor.

On receipt of the certificate of restoration of the right to register to vote from the Secretary of the Commonwealth, the petitioner, who is otherwise a qualified voter, shall become eligible to register to vote.

This is the normal process, which the governor is circumventing.

The governor is relying on Article V, Section 12, of the Virginia Constitution:

Article V. Executive
Section 12. Executive clemency
The Governor shall have power to remit fines and penalties under such rules and regulations as may be prescribed by law; to grant reprieves and pardons after conviction except when the prosecution has been carried on by the House of Delegates; to remove political disabilities consequent upon conviction for offenses committed prior or subsequent to the adoption of this Constitution; and to commute capital punishment.

He shall communicate to the General Assembly, at each regular session, particulars of every case of fine or penalty remitted, of reprieve or pardon granted, and of punishment commuted, with his reasons for remitting, granting, or commuting the same.

I look forward to hearing the governor explain the particulars of each of those 200,000 cases.

I just figured, what the hey! Throw this story up so the libs would have something else to complain about. A teen in Miami was burglarizing a home and activated the alarm, which was sent out to the homeowner and the cops. The homeowner got there first and got into an altercation. Not sure what that altercation was but it didn’t turn out well for the burglar. I was trying to find the footage where the aunt or mother was talking about he didn’t need to get shot. He loved all kinds of things (especially when they belonged to someone else) and you have to understand that he needed money to live and have stuff. That makes sense but why didn’t he work for that money and live within his means? Ah, that is the tricky part. His mug shot (yes, mug shot from a prior arrest) makes him look like the boy Obama would have had. Crime has consequences and I only wish that it would happen to the dumbasses that try to justify these actions and vilify the criminal. Then maybe there tune would change but I highly doubt it. It is because of society and Uncle Charlie that these things happen. Yeah, right.

Have you noticed of late that the DOJ has been idle in its work load? I mean, things are running so smoothly that Lynch could take a year vacation and come back to hum-drum. Holder must have had to look for things or just fabricate them. Stop the presses! It appears that the liberal agitator Dems have found culprits needing incarceration. Climate change deniers. Really. Read it here. Like I was told, it is silly season, only this is more stupid than silly. Shouldn’t the FBI and Lynch be more focused on a sure thing like planting Hillary in prison forever? Does anyone wonder why this administration is a joke and the whole world is laughing? If I was to deny that liberals were homosapians, is that grounds for jail time? Weird.

Article II, Section 2 is clear enough:

[The President] shall have Power…, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint… Judges of the supreme Court….

Simple. The question is, will he take the advise of the Senate before he nominates someone.

According to David Savage, Supreme Court correspondent with the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribute, Reagan presented a dozen candidates to the Senate Judiciary Committee. One of those candidates was Robert Bork. Sen. Biden, then the Chairman of that committee, told Reagan that Bork was not acceptable. Reagan nominated him anyway, and his nomination was rejected. Reagan then nominated Kennedy, whom Biden said was acceptable, and he was approved 97-0.

The role of the Senate is also clear. There is no requirement for the Senate to confirm an objectionable nominee.

So, 0bama has to make a choice. He can nominate a left-wing lunatic with no respect for the Constitution whatsoever (yes, I’m being redundant), and try to brow-beat enough RINO’s into confirming him/her. If he fails, the next president will choose the next member of the Supremes. Or, he can nominate someone who is not a left-wing lunatic and who does respect the Constitution, embarrass any Republicans who refuse to give him a vote, and possibly get to appoint the next Associate Justice.

I have been busy lately. REAL busy. At times I am pulled in 10 different directions and that is not good cause my wife tells me I can’t multi-task. That has proven to be correct. Looking for some downtime, I was expecting Christmas to fulfill that need. I was wrong so I set my sights on New Years. After all people are usually slow moving on New Year’s Day and wanting to watch parades and football games and just lay back. Perfect. That was the plan BEFORE I got the e-mail from VCDL (Virginia Citizens Defense League). Being a member and wanting to do my bit during these insane times with politicians going on gun tirades, I figured that it would be an easy time of it at the Dulles Expo Center because who was going to go out on New Years and buy guns? Someone needed to man the table and I sacrificed some much needed downtime to accommodate. I figured that I would be the only knucklehead out there. When I showed up for the first shift I found out that that notion was just flat wrong. Where the booth normally has 3 to 4 people per shift manning it, we had some of the second shift hanging around and helping early. There were many more VCDL members that were there just because. THAT is what is known as dedication to the organization. The really strange part is that the show opened up at 3:00. I got there at 2:30 and had difficulty finding parking ANYWHERE! The line stretched around both sides of the building and wrapped around the back for those people wanting to get in. It stayed that way when my shift finished at 5:30. This is normally unheard of, especially on a holiday. I would have stayed longer myself but the kids were taking me to the movies for my birthday and, as stated, I needed some downtime.

Now the reason for the mob at the show was simple: people needed protection, ammunition and accessories because of what is going on in the world. We have fear of terrorism in our neighborhoods and still have the gang problems. The police are not as aggressive on crime as they were for fear of being sued or charged with a crime. Their own leaders and administrations aren’t backing them at times and some of the populace outright hate them. This causes more crime and less protection. It appears that true protection and defense is left in the hands of the people as it always was meant to be. Here in the Old Dominion we have a new added threat–our own government. These scumbag politicians will not be outdone by the scumbag federal politicians who illegally make law and steal rights that they have no legal right to do. Let me lay it out for you in case you are unaware of recent events.

Governor McAuliffe (aka McAwful) has a debt to repay for all the money Micheal Bloomberg threw at the last election. That debt is to use senselessness to get rid of guns. Since all his previous endeavors have failed, he is using the radical venue of “executive order”. You know where that comes from, right? This is what he is doing. In a nutshell he is restricting guns in ANY state owned and/or operated building. That means that there will be no carry at, say, ABC stores (and we all know that liquor stores are prime holdup establishments), the DMV and, hey, have you ever been traveling at night and had to take a bathroom break? Most people stop at the rest areas, especially for the women folk. State run rest stops with no security or police, late at night, dark, parking lots a ways from the building and not knowing WHO is in the building. In a nutshell, think of the governor making ALL state run/owned parks and buildings, that you pay for by the way, GUN FREE ZONES! Do you trust the governor with your life? Would you trust a mental patient babysitting your children? A problem is being solved where no problem existed. This makes no sense where rational people are concerned. And Senator Kaine and AG Herring are on board with this. Right out of the liberal playbook and in both state and federal governments pushing this pile of crap. THAT IS SCAREY and always has been.

Not to be out done and bowing to the Bloomberg money master, AG Herring (that would be Red Herring, who was an equally tragic and liberal hack politician as a supervisor in my county as well state Senator) did an audit with his state police commissioner and orchestrated his own anti-Virginian dance. HE determined that other states that Virginia has reciprocity with (states where Virginia honors their concealed carry permits here and they honor ours in their states) don’t “meet” our concealed carry criteria and, therefore, will not be honored come February 1st. In kind, it would appear that those states no longer recognized from the Old Dominian will not RECOGNIZE the Old Dominion either. Now you cannot safely carry a defense arm into other states which, technically makes more gun free zones and inhibits your right of self defense elsewhere. Why? Because Herring knows what is best for you and you should trust his judgement also, right? Here is the revealing parts from The WaPo, which is a main mouthpiece for the liberal nut jobs:

” Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced Tuesday that the commonwealth will no longer recognize out-of-state concealed handgun permits, part of a national push to circumvent legislatures opposed to tightening gun laws.”

Plain and simple: to circumvent legislatures… This means it doesn’t matter what laws the legislatures make because those in key positions of government HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE AND INTERPRET THEM ANYWAY THEY WANT. That is what a despot does. But then WaPo continues with its reveal:

“The move is in step with actions governors and attorneys general are taking to address gun violence without going through Republican-controlled legislatures.”

..without going through Republican-controlled legislatures. Has anyone done this type thing when they were Democrat-controlled legislatures? This is what dictatorial governments do. Call it fascist, communist, socialist or any other name but you can’t call it American because it is NOT what America stands for, by our Constitution. I feel shame and anger when the Old Dominion, the most patriotic state throughout history, elects and condones the abuse from the scumbags pushing this liberal anti-American and anti-Virginian crap. Most of it happens from the people who get too lazy to vote for whatever reason and excuse that they can live with without guilt or those ignorant people easily persuaded with lies because they are just too damn lazy to do the research and protect themselves but, more importantly, protect us from these predators and our rights. That is why I have only been a member of three organizations in my life: PADI, the NRA and VCDL.

VCDL is a grassroots organization in Virginia, the most potent and most powerful, that stands up for our gun rights. You may say “ACT, why are you so narrow minded and only worry about gun rights?” Well, since you weren’t paying attention before I will repeat myself yet again. The 2nd Amendment is what protects all the other amendments to the Constitution. Don’t doubt the truth or the obvious. Sane and rational people know this. Our founders knew this because they looked through history and other countries and their governments before they created a document that gave people true freedom never before seen anywhere else on this earth. That document has kept this Republic, yet others wish to destroy it. You can see it for yourself on a daily basis in the news. Logical people understand. The mental liberals don’t until they have to live it (the 2×4 between the eyes of a jackass to get attention) and they won’t live it cause they don’t want to know the truth. VCDL keeps Virginians safe by helping to create an environment where defense is allowed for all Virginians. The only way to stop a criminal is with self defense because criminals just won’t obey the law, no matter how many laws you make. THAT can be seen throughout history if you just do your research.

If you are a Virginian; if you believe in a right to self dense or defense of your family, friends or even strangers ( this would be considered a selfless person of which I am); if you own a gun and want to protect that right, then you need VCDL. You should become a member as it only costs $25 and it would be the best $25 you’ll have spent. Go to http://vcdl.org and look over the site. Learn what this organization does in a tireless fashion. ABSOLUTELY sign up for VA-Alert. We don’t give out your e-mail address and no one will contact you. You will have regular news information on what has and is occurring in Virginia as it pertains to your gun rights. It is unbiased, truthful news. Once you have an understanding on what is happening throughout the state, in Richmond and other counties, FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM and help us fight for you and with you. Join. I’ll say it again, JOIN. We need to show the nation that we will not be party to giving up our defensive freedoms and becoming willing sheep to the slaughter. JOIN.
