I think you were a fool to fall for Obama's racist statements regarding Trayvon Martin. Obama isn't a Christian, his pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright said he was never convinced he left Islam, and he doesn't say things to appeal to the masses. Obama is a racist who only wants to divide the people. Obama has a truckload of supporters who have very unpleasant ideologies like Kevin Jennings who founded the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network and he often speaks to appease them.
Being a strong supporter of 10th Amendment States Rights, I am in total agreement with Thomas Massie's original statement. If someone coached him into making the clarification in the second statement I think they were wrong. I don't think a Constitutional Amendment is the way to accomplish this. It also comes across as being something of a flip-flop. And, lest anyone thinks otherwise, I am a conservative Republican, not a Libertarian.
I have a personal story relating to your excellent article American Laws for American Courts. My original thought was not want to post it as a comment on your web site because it did not involve any court action but it confirms the existence of Sharia Law treating non-Muslims differently long before any of us were aware about the threat of Islam. My brother and I are neither Arab nor Muslim but our father was both. He was born in Tangiers, Morocco and came to America as a young boy. My father made a small fortune while living in NYC and had extensive assets both here and in Morocco. He retired and moved back to Tangiers where he died in 1964. At first his family in Morocco attempted to have his U.S. assets transferred back their but the NY estate lawyers prevented it. The U.S. State Dept. and the Internal Revenue Service forced the NY lawyers (named Jancourtz and Skilowitz - yes, both wonderful Jewish men whom my father trusted) to provide a complete inventory of the overseas assets so they could be assessed for estate taxes. It took years to accomplish. In the end, my father's brothers and sisters in Morocco informed the NY lawyers that me and my brother could only inherit our father's assets in Morocco if we converted to Islam. We did not convert to Islam and we lost all of his property there. We did inherit all of the assets in the USA. Regards, Nelson Abdullah Independence, Kentucky p.s. It took 7 years to complete the distribution. One funny side story was that we received information that my 65 year old father had married a young girl after moving back home because it was not acceptable for him not to have a wife. The NY lawyers had to obtain a copy of the marriage certificate from Morocco and learned that the keeper of records where he had lived carried them around as he traveled by camel from village to village. I kid you not! From what we learned, this 21 year old girl got nothing from the estate.

There is an interesting commentary by Steve Baldwin over on WorldNet about Gov. Rick Perry. I posted a few opinions of this on my own blog. Monday, August 15, 2011 Beware of Rick Perry, a counterfeit conservative from Texas. Like a lot of other patriotic Christians whenever I hear an elected official mention the name of Jesus Christ or God in a public speech I begin to have admiration for them. Last week when Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his candidacy for president I started thinking about my dream team for the Republican Party ticket next year. Any combination of Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin or Allen West seemed like a sure thing. I admit that I knew little about the governor from Texas except that he has gotten a lot of praise in conservative publications in the last few years. Then I read today a commentary by Steve Baldwin on WorldNet that yanked open my eyes. 10 questions Rick Perry must answer is one commentary that every Republican needs to read. Every one of these questions opens up a serious dialog on the genuine conservative credentials of this politician. For instance, why has it never been mentioned before that - Gov. Perry did not become a Republican until 1989 and served as Texas chairman of Al Gore's presidential campaign in 1988 – as Steve Baldwin asks in question #3? Or that Rick Perry joined the elitist Bilderberg group in 2007. Steve Baldwin correctly describes the Bilderbergs as: “The Bilderberg group is a secret society composed of hundreds of the world's most powerful elites, most of whom are hostile to the notion of sovereignty and support world government to varying degrees. They are strong supporters of the U.N., EU, and other one-world entities. Invitations are only extended to people who share their views.” I know this is fact because I have read about them decades ago and their secret annual gatherings promoting One World Government. But then we all know that most of what we read comes from the liberal controlled news media and they were responsible for resurrecting the dying primary campaign of RINO Sen. John McCain because he was the weakest Republican and stood the best chance of losing. We have seen the hatchet job the mainstream news media did on Sarah Palin and is now doing on Michele Bachmann so it is not surprising to find out they may be protecting the sordid reputation of Rick Perry. The liberal news media pulled the rug out from under McCain after he won the Republican nomination and could easily do the same with Gov. Rick Perry if his popularity began to jeopardize their anointed Barack Hussein Obama. As if this wasn’t enough, the Baldwin commentary adds two more significant questions that convince me that Rick Perry is a counterfeit conservative. Rick Perry favors the government right to confiscate private land. Question 8) “Gov. Perry vetoed an eminent-domain bill that would have helped protect property rights for Texas landowners.” And Question 9) "Gov. Perry signed a hate-crimes bill." The Federal version of the Hate Crime bill grants protected legitimate status to over 500 deviant lifestyles to such a degree it was labeled the Pedophile Protection Act. As I wrote in this blog on Wednesday, December 9, 2009 An open letter to the group "Mom's Like Me" and parents everywhere. You should be aware that conservative groups waged a tremendous battle months ago against a new law they had called The Pedophile Protection Act which gave official Federal recognition to every deviant lifestyle. The American Family Association said since "sexual orientation" nowhere is defined in the law, "this law will give pedophiles, voyeurs, and exhibitionists special protections, which is why the bill has correctly been called 'The Pedophile Protection Act.'" In the House version, an effort to amend the bill to exclude “pedophilia” was defeated in committee along party lines. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), when confronted with a list of 547 paraphilias from the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, including pedophilia, declared that “all of these philias and fetishes and isms that were put forward – need not live in fear because of who they are.” Following the passage of the original Hate Crimes Prevention Act (HR 1913) a storm of protest caused the U.S. Senate to delay a vote because it would not have passed. But a Democrat took the House bill and added it to a National Defense Authorization Act as an amendment and it was passed on July 23 and signed into law. Any one of these 10 questions is enough to raise concern and I am forever grateful that Steve Baldwin has brought these issues about Gov. Rick Perry to my attention. The Texas governor has no chance of winning any votes from those who consider themselves to be true conservatives. If we are going to win back America from the clutches of the Democratic Socialists who are raping our economy and plundering our treasury and trashing our Bill of Rights, we need candidates with true character and solid principles. My hope still rests with Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin.

Well before the Republican Party gets a court hearing in an effort to reverse McCain-Feingold, re: AtlasShrugs REPUBLICANS SEEKS TO KILL MCCAIN FEINGOLD 11/3/2008 The U. S. Supreme Court will be rehearing arguments for this matter during a special session on Sept. 9, 2009. As a result of a lawsuit filed against the FCC by the producers of a documentary film Hillary: The Movie that was produced by David Bossie, leader of Citizens United for distribution in local theaters. According to a story in USAToday "The movie was shown in eight theaters. Bossie's group wanted to run ads on television in key election states during peak primary season and show the movie on cable television's video-on-demand. Federal courts said the ads would violate the McCain-Feingold law, the popular name for 2002 revisions to the nation's campaign finance laws. Judges called "Hillary: The Movie" a 90-minute attack ad, rulings that would require Citizens United to identify the financial backers for the ads if they were to appear on television. The court also said that if Bossie's group showed the movie on cable television, financial backers would have to be named and the group would have to pay the cost of airing the movie. Citizens United appealed to the Supreme Court, arguing that "Hillary: The Movie" should not be considered a political ad. The group says there is nothing in the movie urging people to vote against Clinton. The group says the film is more of a documentary comparable to critical television news programs such as "Frontline," "Nova" and "60 Minutes." On June 29, 2009 the U.S. Supreme Court announced its very unusual decision to expand the case and rehear arguments that incorporated McCain-Feingold in a special session to be held before the next term begins in October. The original suit against McCain-Feingold was brought by Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell but was turned down in a 5-4 decision. The new Supreme Court makeup has changed with a 5-4 conservative leaning majority. The latest court decision is below. ORIGINAL ARGUMENT 03/24/2009 ORDER OF 06/29/2009 THIS CASE IS RESTORED TO THE CALENDAR FOR REARGUMENT. THE PARTIES ARE DIRECTED TO FILE SUPPLEMENTAL BRIEFS ADDRESSING THE FOLLOWING QUESTION: FOR THE PROPER DISPOSITION OF THIS CASE, SHOULD THE COURT OVERRULE EITHER OR BOTH AUSTIN V. MICHIGAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, 494 U.S. 652 (1990), AND THE PART OF MCCONNELL V. FEDERAL ELECTION COMM’N, 540 U.S. 93 (2003), WHICH ADDRESSES THE FACIAL VALIDITY OF SECTION 203 OF THE BIPARTISAN CAMPAIGN REFORM ACT OF 2002, 2 U.S.C. §441b? EXPEDITED BRIEFING SCHEDULE THE CASE IS SET FOR ORAL ARGUMENT AT 10 A.M., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2009
