Hi Rose –
This is Purple Patriot, but I guess I’ll be “pertheconstitution” now, since I started a blog by that name here at wordpress. I originally started it for just family and friends, to try to bring them up to speed, and kept it private at first. But interest has spread (just a little), so I decided to make it public.
You were definitely my inspiration – but I’m in no way trying to compete (as if!!!). I’m just trying to highlight people and organizations that understand the problem and are already working on the solution – like the TEA parties and Tenacity’s Committees of Safety and the Continental Congress – and help everyone find a way to get involved. I’m just now starting to post links to relevant articles. I have a page at the top for comments if anyone has any suggestions or ideas.
Per The Constitution is completely non-partisan. I’m too disgusted with both major parties to give either one any credit. But I’ll give credit to anyone in any party who does right by We The People and our Constitution.
Thanks again for all you do, Rose.
Right back atcha, pertheconstitution!
And I’m glad you’re still purple.
Have I ever told you that my kids went to high school with Barney, I mean the voice of Barney.
Rose – how fun for your kids! My kids would have so loved that! My kids will never forget the time when Charles Barkley was still with the Phoenix Suns – it must be almost 20 years now! – he hosted SNL, so we let the kids stay up and watch it. My son was in kindergarten and loved basketball as much as Barney… Then Barkley had to go and beat up Barney. My husband and I were laughing and the poor kids were horrified! Apparently alot of parents let their kids stay up and watch, because that’s all the kids could talk about at school on Monday.
Hey – just realized the Suns are purple and orange too!
My favorite association of all tho has to be with Mother Mary.
Purple definitely rocks!!! So, yeah, I’m happy to stay purple…
Cool site Patriot. I’ll link to you if you’ll link to me. Now that’s kinda linky don’t ya think? Building a really good site takes some thought and perseverance. I am just in awe of the research Rose does to keep the gang informed.

After I give some time for a few people to respond to that Rush tune you posted, you gotta come back and splain some stuff.
Okie dokie, it would be my pleasure.
I was just blogging with myself (with the lights on) and suggesting that the American Grand Juries are presenting the wrong indictment of Obama. In order to be treasonous, he would necessarily have an allegiance to the U.S. What he is guilty of is espionage and subversion. Can anyone tell me the criminal count for subverting the nation?
I doubt there is one and besides he has a disclaimer….He told ( warned) everyone up front that “Change” is coming…..The effing idiots and racist (every single person that voted for him because he is kind of black) all just assumed that it would be a good change…..Suckers!!!!!
Thursday night, 9 Eastern, 6 Pacific, Let’s Talk Liberty. My guest will be Pastor Jim Grove. Jim just completed a 4 part DVD series for the Fully Informed Jury Association to educate churches and others. Red Beckman will co-host with me. We will open the phone lines for the 2nd hour so call in and visit with us. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/patriotsheartnetwork call in number: (347) 215-6929
Jim pastors the Heritage Baptist Church in PA that is an unincorporated church. Donations are NOT tax deductible but they have LIBERTY in the pulpit and do not bow down to the false-god government. Jim will talk about a number of topics and Red is fired up for a robust discussion. Invite a preacher, elder, or church board member to listen. The FIJA series is available for seminars in churches. We have needed this for a long long time.
Okay, here we go again. How do you impeach an imposter? Deport him, jail him for fraud and subversion, but if has never actually been a legitimate POTUS, how/why do you impeach? Hey, I will take impeachment if that will get him gone. The problem is he belongs behind bars and impeachment doesn’t accomplish that.
Troy, I posted this under the America, Land of the Tree thread in response to your question about Operation Blackjack. I thought it appropriate to post it here as well.
In my study of Revelations, I have been encouraged by a couple of things. One is that believers need not fear because there will be many false prophets and the signs are there for those who study and believe. No matter what happens or when it happens, complete (100%) faith/trust in God will be the key. Is there any validity in any of these supposed fictional representation? I prefer to trust scripture and what I see. I see that Israel is back on its land. I see Messianic Jewish congregations flourishing in almost every community there. It appears that the seals have not been broken but that the time may very well be drawing near. Do not be deceived by false signs!!!!! Satan imitates God, not the other way around. If you want a good lesson in eschatology, check out the resources and product page at http://www.memministries.org/ Send me a message through our Contact Us button on the site home page if you would like to get a set of CD’s on the End Times by Brent Avery.
Here are some more links on Operation Blackjack. We should be prepared for the unthinkable, but also be aware of how many human predicted dates have come and gone.
Hi gang, haven’t posted for a good while but try to read up when I can.
Here’s something that has gotten zero publicity and could be very interesting.
A gentleman that I know from a discussion board (and may have helped encourage) has filed a case with the SCOTUS to get a SC opinion on the meaining of NBC. He has deliberately avoided any direct mention of Obama knowing that that would be a case killer for sure. His strategy is to get the determination and then, if as it should be, go after the O for his known non-citizen parentage.
This case is on the SCOTUS docket (#08-10817) and is scheduled for conference on 6/25 as in next week!
This may well be the most active thing going on with the whole topic at the moment and I don’t think anybody has heard about it.
My hat’s off to Mr. Craig for having the fortitude and determination to attempt this. Let’s hope they finally take a case for a change.
My new Townhall.com column asks: “How hard should it be for President Obama to declare unequivocally and with specificity that the Khamenei/Ahmadinejad regime should not murder its opponents, should not fire into crowds, should not sweep through the university campus and drag away suspected student leaders?”
HH: How do you assess the reaction of President Obama thus far?
CH: Well, I think he’s just completely failed to make the distinction between the internal affairs of Iran and the way in which by violating every known treaty on international security, nuclear weapons, nuclear power and so forth, flagrantly and openly doing so, that Iran has made it our business.
In his open letter to the Iranians before his Cairo speech, he referred to the need to make the Islamic Republic of Iran a member of the community of nations, not Iran itself or Persia.
The Islamic Republic of Iran, by definition, can’t be a member of a community of nations, because
A) it’s a theocratic dictatorship that tortures and murders and defrauds its own people, and
B) it’s broken every single law and agreement governing non-proliferation.
So as such, it’s not admissible under any terms. I don’t think the President understands this distinction at all.
And when Hillary Clinton, his secretary of state, said over the weekend that the important thing to her was that the election results should express the true and, I forget exactly how she phrased it, but the authentic wishes of the people of Iran…
doesn’t she know that that’s already been decided in advance, that the candidates are pre-selected, that anyone who the theocrats don’t like isn’t allowed to run in the first place?
Thirty years after the Iranian revolution, two exiles from opposite sides of the divide face off on screen. The “Queen” of the title is 70-year-old Empress Farah Diba, second wife of Shah Reza Pahlavi, an icon with considerable charm.
Just an excellent piece of filmmaking!
THE QUEEN AND I at LA Film Fest ’09 presented by LA Times
While I was at FIU, 1989 – 1990, somewhere in there, one of my classmates was a member of the Pahlavi family. I don’t remember the exact relation, only that she resembled the Shah and that she had a sweet disposition and a nice smile.
Rose, I was thinking that what I posted above about a new SCOTUS case is so unknown that it might be worth a mention elsewhere. I know you post Polarik items regularly so I wondered if the freepers might find it interesting. It’s scheduled for conference next week and may go totally unnoticed. If they, for once, take this case and grant writ, it could be a very pivotal case to follow.
1) “Do you think the Fed and the Financial Services Oversight Council would actually raise capital standards or stop certain practices in the middle of a perceived bubble? Wouldn’t they be accused a killing a profitable scenario?”
2) “Or would they merely warn of a dangerous situation? But if there was no actual regulatory action, wouldn’t that be tantamount to a de facto seal of approval and exacerbate the problem?
3) “Have you just given up on dealing with “too big too fail” since your approach seems to enshrine it and thus create a implicit government guarantee of TBTF institutions? And doesn’t that, then, give then an edge in the marketplace? And wouldn’t that make them even bigger?
4) Was it politics or economic efficiency that led you away from streamlining the regulatory structure?
5) How exactly would you prevent the new consumer financial products safety commission from stifling innovation? Why not just simply better educate consumers and heighten financial literacy?
The Great Moderation of the ’80s and ’90s has given way to extremism in Fed policy. And we may be in danger of repeating it all over again, with a new round of near-zero interest rates and a massive 11 percent growth of M2 over the past nine months. …
Missing from the package is a reform that would put Fed monetary policy back on a commodity-price rule, including gold and the dollar. This rule was basically used from the early ’80s to the late ’90s, during Paul Volcker’s Fed term and the first half of Alan Greenspan’s term. This would have been the best-possible reform, but of course it’s not in the proposal.
So now the Fed has become the supreme Keynesian unemployment vs. growth Philips-curve tinkerer. Until this totally mistaken policy is changed, we can have ten more reregulation plans that will not fix the real problem.
There is concern among centrists in the caucus that the draft bill, to be released Friday, will reflect some of the more liberal ideas in the caucus, although leadership has already rejected the idea of a single-payer system.
It is being put together by the House Education and Labor, Energy and Commerce and Ways and Means committees.
“You have a bunch of crazy liberal chairs and their crazy liberal staffers, and they want to lay down a marker,” said a senior Democratic aide.
(How about “laying down” something that can actually pass and that will actually help people, instead of being so obtuse?!)
“I told you I’m not going to criticize my successor,” he said. “I’ll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don’t believe that — persuasion isn’t going to work. Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind.”
The Obama administration has started to clear out some of the more than 200 detainees at the facility.
Repeating a mantra from his presidency, he called the current war against terrorism an “ideological conflict,” asserting that in the long term, the United States needs to press freedom and democracy in corners across the world.
Mr. Bush did not directly address Mr. Obama’s response to the election in Iran, which some critics have called tepid, but he did make clear that the outcome is very much in dispute. For a fifth straight day, as the Obama administration walks a tightrope by issuing little criticism, protesters gathered in Tehran to demand a new election.
“Clearly, there’s a level of frustration on the Iranian streets,” Mr. Bush said. “It looks like it’s not a very fair election.”
Mr. Bush returned again and again to the economy, and sought to defend his own actions after the financial meltdown in the waning days of his second term — Mr. Obama repeatedly has said he inherited that mess.
“I am told, ‘If you do not move strongly, Mr. President, you will be a president overseeing a depression that will ultimately be greater than the Great Depression,'” Mr. Bush said. “I firmly believe it was necessary to put money in our banks to make sure our financial system did not collapse. … I did not want there to be bread lines, to be a great depression.”
He said his administration sought to address the “housing bubble” before the system broke down. “We tried to reform” mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, “but couldn’t get it through the vested interests on Capitol Hill.”
Maybe Obama should start thinking about making some personnel changes.
Because it sure seems like he’s getting some bad advice.
I keep hearing people refer to him as incompetent or stupid. They completely underestimate what he is about. They believe his actions to be amateurish mistakes rather than the willful intent to destroy our middle class and weaken our defenses to resist the new order.

Where does MSNBC dredge up these loswers? What’s Rachel’s claim-to-fame? According to her website, the Rachel Maddow Show is a “funny, fast-paced, news-based show…Maddow and guests take a smart look at politics, pop culture and the top stories of the day.”
She’s about as funny as a fart in a space helmet. “Fast-paced?” The only thing “fast-paced” is how quickly normal people change the channel. A “smart look?” A “smart-ass look” is more like it.
The website notes that “Rachel has a doctorate in political science (she was a Rhodes Scholar) and a background in HIV/AIDS activism and prison reform.”
Where did she get her degree? University of Mars? Black Hole of Calcutta College?
The website continues, “She drives a bright red pickup, hates Coldplay, loves arguing with conservatives, spends a lot of money on AMTRAK tickets, and dresses like a first-grader.”
I think she does more than just dress like a first grader. She still believes that Obama is NOT a Muslim, and callking him one is a “dirty smear.”
She was a frequent guest on Keith Olbermann’s show. Figures. As they say, “Birds of a feather, flock together.”
Here’s hoping that she and the rest of the Dodos at MSNBC get the flock out of here. Is she the great grandaughter of Appomaddox? What was the most incredulous thing this warmed-over

(I don’t know, there’s something likable about Rachel Maddow. Once in a blue moon I tune in and at times it seems she talks down to her viewers, like we’re dummies or children or something.
She really pissed me off when she called Palin a LOL choice. That statement, in and of itself, told me a lot about her.)
“I believe there is a way forward that can get the support of 75 to 80 Senators, but the bill Democrats released yesterday doesn’t cut it,” Enzi said. “Democrats can’t write a bipartisan bill on their own – they need to start listening to Republican ideas.”
Enzi again said that Republicans would strongly oppose any proposal that included a government-run plan, which would force millions of Americans to lose their health insurance and drive them into a program where Washington bureaucrats ration care.
“A government-run plan would deny Americans their choice of doctor, and would give Washington bureaucrats the power to ration and deny care,” Enzi said. “This would violate the pledge we’ve heard from President Obama and others, that if you like the care you have, you can keep it.”
Enzi said that Republicans expect a full analysis from the Congressional Budget Office on the cost of a bill before any Committee action.
“This will be the most sweeping legislation Congress has considered in a generation, and Senators must have a full understanding of how much it will cost. We can’t act on a bill without knowing the price tag.”
Also in attendance at the White House meeting with Enzi were Senate Finance Committee Chairman Senator Max Baucus, D-Mont., Finance Committee Ranking Member Senator Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Senator Chris Dodd, D-Conn.
Senators pushed ahead Thursday on what were supposed to be the easy parts of sweeping health care legislation and quickly found out almost nothing about overhauling the system is uncontroversial.
“You could end up with a bill that’s easily headed to a $2 trillion price tag,” complained Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., as he offered an amendment that would require proof that various quality measures such as training and identifying best practices would actually save money.
Committee hearings in the House are set to begin next week with legislation to be unveiled as early as Friday.
Even dealing with the simpler parts of the health care overhaul bill is turning out to be difficult.
The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee began work today on a 600-plus-page bill with amendments to improve quality and efficiency. But the debate quickly shifted to the overall cost of the plan.
New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg proposed an amendment to require proof that various measures would actually save money. Maryland Democrat Barbara Mikulski accused him of trying to “throw sand in the gears.” The amendment was rejected.
Meanwhile, members of the Senate Finance Committee are meeting behind closed doors on ways to trim the plan’s pricetag. The panel was supposed to release draft legislation yesterday and begin voting on it next week, but it now appears the vote could be put off until after July 4.
Committee hearings in the House are set to begin next week.
Beyond the changes, this is also the clearest look we’ve had at the specific policies being considered.
There’s a fairly strong individual mandate, albeit with exemptions for those beneath the poverty line, those who would have to spend more than 15 percent of income for a plan, and undocumented workers.
There are a variety of options for an employer mandate, or the absence of one.
Sen. Kent Conrad’s co-op idea is up for discussion.
*** There’s no public plan mentioned anywhere in the document. ***
UPDATED: Here’s a version of the file with all the pages right side up.
Suspected US drone strikes on Thursday killed around 12 people in South Waziristan, where the military is poised to stage an attack on Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Baitullah Mehsud, locals and officials said.
The drone targeted the suspected hideout of Taliban commander Malang some 18 kilometres northwest of Wana, officials said on condition of anonymity.
Malang was a subordinate of Wazir Taliban leader Maulvi Nazir, they added.
“Four missiles were fired at the hideout, where Taliban were believed to be training new recruits,” local tribal sources told Daily Times by telephone.
“The attack was staged in two parts:
An initial drone strike killed two Taliban.
Then, when people converged on the site, three more missiles were fired, resulting in the deaths of 10 more people,” they said.
Local administration official Hamayun Khan told AFP that up to three drone aircraft were in the area.
A military official told AFP on condition of anonymity four of those killed were local Taliban, while five were foreigners.
Geez, I never considered myself a right-winger!
Lmao…The whole concept of left and right has been distorted. The colloquial use has evolved from where partisan members are seated: Rep on the right, Dem on the left and the rest in between. This results in a misnomer. In fact, Left means more government and Right means less government. Thus, a republican form of government actually represents a balance between oligarchy (the only practiced form of dictatorship) and anarchy (no government). A republic being a government for and by a sovereign people, limited/restricted by the constitution (the employment agreement). A democracy (mob rule) is nothing more than a transitional form headed for oligarchy. Thus, Rose, we (mouse in my pocket) are centrist. We seek a balance where sovereign people desire limited “government that is by law not men.” This allows for liberal and conservative bents in a free society. We are not left or right. S/Ob is left. Got it?
Note: Remember how Orly missed the court’s deadline for filing her response? She is now blaming FedEx and Memorial Day Weekend for her failure. I wonder if the Court will be so understanding for Orly failing to file on time?
I would expect the court to honor Taitz’ filing. Courts typically afford such latitude to legal counsel, especially if the docs carry the postmark represented. Berg on the other hand has some splainin’ to do if he got the pleading in a timely manner and still filed for default. If I were the judge, I would question him as an officer of the court as to why he failed to disclose his receipt of delivery.
“Thus, Rose, we (mouse in my pocket) are centrist. We seek a balance where sovereign people desire limited “government that is by law not men.” This allows for liberal and conservative bents in a free society. We are not left or right. S/Ob is left. Got it?”
Got it, I am a centrist. But I’m a Dem centrist.
I probably should register Independent, but I like being a Dem primary voter.
And for the most part, I do believe our two-party system works pretty well.
I am like the atheist who fears atheists being in power.
I am a Dem who fears Dems being in power. That’s why I like it when one party controls the executive while the other rules in Congress.
So I am ever hopeful that changes are coming in 2010.
