Does This Send a Shiver Down Your Spine? (It Should)
For a while now, we have been hearing about a case in which a lawyer from Pennsylvania took it upon himself to challenge wether or not Barrack Obama’s birth certificate is real or not, and if he is a Naturalized Citizen.
Philip Berg, a Democrat and former Assistant Attorney General for Pennsylvania, brought suit alleging that under the Natural Born Citizen Clause of the U.S. Constitution, Obama is ineligible to be President.
The judge overseeing the case made a ruling that was a bit disturbing in that it says, (Paraphrased) A citizen does not have the right to sue to enforce the Constitution, without the backing of Congress. Scary right? Well that’s not the all of it.
Judge Surrick states that citizens may not sue to enforce the Constitution without statutory authorization from Congress.
That concept would result in tyranny.
The United States Supreme Court by not hearing the case, upheld that ruling. No matter what your reasoning is, you knew that the ruling would go for Obama. However, that is not the concern. The concern is, they let it stand that a ordinary citizen (like You and I,) cannot defend the Constitution when we see it being trampled on.
I have the feeling, a door has been opened that will be hard to shut, and will allow future constitutional cases to go with out being heard. This will make it harder for the citizenry to take back what the last eight years have taken from them.
U.S. and Canadian Economic Troubles Move us ever closer to the NAU
It seems that economic boom was short lived for Canada, the Canadian banks have had to cut their interest rates to 2.2% on home loans. Further more, due to the sharp decline in the price of oil, coupled with the global economic down fall, the Canadian people are feeling that it wont be long until, (you fill in the blank.)
If things were not bad enough for our neighbors to the north, their government is in a political turmoil. It seems that Prime Minister Steven Harper, (one of George Bush’s NAU buddies) has gotten Parliament suspended until after the New Year. This is a move that has and may even do more to weaken the confidence of the Toronto Stock Market.
But it’s merely delayed any direct impact the political fighting might have on equity markets, and thrown one more complication into the mix faced by market players.
Indeed, most analysts agree if there is any impact on Toronto stocks to be felt from the Ottawa stalemate it is the added uncertainty it brings to a market already battered by tumbling commodity prices and gloomy economic data.
Whether or not most Canadians like to admit it, they are seeing their beautiful country decaying from the inside out thanks to the U.S. intervention.
This past Monday’s big retreat was not all due to constitutional battling however, as sliding commodity prices, gloomy U.S. economic news and an urge to lock in profits after six days of gains all contributed to the big sell off.
That led some analysts to surmise it would be difficult, if not impossible, to isolate the direct influence the Ottawa fighting has had, or will have, on the market.
This is all taking place for a reason, and that would be the preparations for the North American Union. In the many different documents on the Building of the North American Community, it is often mentioned that the economy will be brought DOWN to a level playing field. With weakened economies, the dissolving of sovereignty will become less difficult.
For those who think that the NAU is a conspiracy theory, think back to U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, during a press conference on the bank and credit bailout said quickly, (paraphrased) The US cannot remain sovereign, and compete globally. So I have to ask, “What the hell do you think that means?” Well you think about those things and I will get back with you.
