When it’s all boiled down to gravy, it’s always been about MONEY, PROPERTY, and Central Authority to control it. Lincoln (and most people back in the day) was a socioculturalist (‘race’ isn’t really a factor, when all things are considered) — Same is true today…. It’s a false paradigm. Either the Constitution means what it says, or it doesn’t. Then we have to as ourselves, ‘which constitution, the Constitution of 1791 suspended March 27, 1861 when the Senate adjourned Sine Die, or that ‘God D*** piece of paper’ (as Bush correctly referred to it) CREATED by fiat following Lincoln’s apotheosis ceremony? What are the odds they co-exist??? Chief ‘Just Us’ Roberts was given the same ‘ultimatum’ Roger B Taney was given when Lincoln suspended habeas corpus…. How else do the banksters hold onto ‘power?’ :-)

March 27, 1861 — Congress adjourns, Sine Die. Had nothing to do with the ‘peculiar institution;’ – Today, the false premise is ‘socioculturalism.’ — in reality, (as it has been since the colonies ‘seceded’ from the Crown) about PROPERTY, and ‘taxation.’ The world is morally and financially ‘bankrupt.’ plenty of resources …. just the control freaks want the same thing LINCOLN (patsy) did: CENTRAL CONTROL.

BINGO! I think we have a winner —– When the progressive LINCOLN (republican in those days is EXACTLY the same thing as democrat today….) instigated and ‘won’ his issues on the battlefield, he argued AGAINST ‘treason’ charges being filed in court stating, ‘why should we risk in court that which we have won on the battlefield?’ ‘Nationalized poeleece force’ is one more move toward the elimination of STATE lines…. bear in mind, the work-around is that they’re not ‘military’ but…. ‘civilian’ —- a rose by any other name is still a rose….. They’re under the direction of the STATE DEPT, not DOJ :-0

That there 9th amendment thingy is kinda cool, too. The Constitution restricts government, not the People. Well —- it used to, til the Senate adjourned sine die March 27 1861…. Why do the People need permission to do that which they’re already free to do? Only slaves and chattel PROPERTY need their ‘parents’ permission….. but nobody wants to have that conversation.

They got them. They’re called United States Citizens (with the big ‘c’). The courts have repeatedly said, that the 14th amendment did NOTHING but CREATE an NEW class of citizenship…..(privileges and benefits are in NO WAY akin to ‘rights.’ RIGHTS come from our humanity; govt can ONLY control that which it creates… corporate entity PERSONS) Northeners, Southerners, of all colors (except native americans…WHY is that??? ;-) What was the “Expatriate Act” of 1868 all about, and WHY was it enacted exactly one day before that 14th amendment took effect? if people want to continue to believe in fairy tales, they’re just as doomed as the Rebels of old.

Because subsequent to Congress adjourning sine die in March 1861, the republic’s Constitution was suspended; (we know the effect Lincoln’s suspension of Habeas Corpus had on both the North and the South, and Chief Justice Taney’s RIGHTFUL observation that it was in fact, unconstitutional — threatened with jail — probably the same threat made to Roberts in the ACA ‘case’) —- the constitution of 1871 (2nd Organic Acts expanded the 10-sq mi area to include ALL of the conquered, north AND south) created a ‘new birth of “freedom,” just as Lincoln predicted…. Fundamental transformation.

attorn – Legal Definition
To turn over or transfer something to another.
To acknowledge a new landlord and agree to become his or her tenant.
The ‘bar’ is a UNION, sanctioning the practice of ‘law’ at bar…. Attorney AT law. Why not Attorney IN law? Words have meaning IN law…. They also have meaning AT law. Law isn’t a ‘statute,’ Regulation, Guideline, (suggestions) — Today it’s under COLOR of law, presumed to be correct unless properly challenged. These Imam’s use the misnomer ‘attorney’ the same way most in the west misinterpret THEIR culture…. Wise up….

Let’s let it play out — Truth, FACTS, law and evidence — I suspect the State won’t dig as deep as it should (honest discovery to the sources, co-conspirators) — lest ‘conspiracy theorists’ run wild. Clancey, Breitbart, Kyle and other high profile figures within a short window –The defense doesn’t have to prove he’s insane (or was) The prosecution has to prove he isn’t (wasn’t), if that’s their tactic — not defending the alleged perp — Turtles know a low profile is best. I like turtles.
insanity defense isn't used that often and is successful in only a handful of cases. When a defendant asserts the insanity defense, he is basically stating that he isn't guilty because he wasn't able to understand that what he did was wrong.
The defendant has the burden to prove the insanity defense by clear and convincing evidence. This means that the defendant must prove by clear and convincing evidence that due to severe mental disease or defect, he couldn't appreciate the nature and quality of his acts. This is a tough standard to meet and it helps assure that the defense isn't abused.
The prosecution doesn't have to show that the defendant was sane at the time of the crime because there is a presumption that the defendant wasn't insane. The defendant doesn't have to be permanently insane. The state of insanity can be temporary. The insanity must be brought about by factors that are beyond the defendant's control. Therefore, voluntary intoxication won't support an insanity defense. An insanity defense is based on evaluations by forensic professionals that the defendant was incapable of distinguishing between (legal) right and wrong or appreciating the nature of his or her actions at the time of the offense. (This is other states’ standards, as well as to a degree, the Federal Standard.) The Texas Standard, however, is more limited. An individual must be so severely mentally ill that he or she did not know that their conduct was wrong.
yup and James Holmes ? his trial is going on also. the truth will never come out

NBC – Those who recognize the dog and pony show know it’s entertainment (N)o(B)ody(Cares) except those who accept MSM as their ‘truth.’ “Those who don’t read the newspapers are uninformed; those who do are misinformed.” ~Mark Twain – Believe Jefferson opined a similar phrase back in his day, also. If it’s not backed up with truth, FACTS, law and evidence — it never happened.

Brian’s ‘position’ is similar to that of ‘WH Press Secretary” in that NOTHING spewed is his ‘opinion;’ – MSM propaganda is controlled by those higher up — read the NDAA — the State Dept actually buys time, the executives ‘edit’ and control the content approved by the Central Authority and the pundits run with it – What it really comes down to is the almighty dollar. Character, integrity and truth don’t figger into the equation. The only thing Brian’s ‘guilty’ of is knowingly, willingly and intentionally deceiving the public for kick-backs (they call it a salary – but follow the $…) – Americans love a scary story almost as they do an emotional tear jerker…. it’s human nature.
True ‘democrats’ of yesteryear are the ‘founders,’ (Jeffersonians) and secessionists of the 1850 and 60′s- absent ‘slavery’ – that’s exactly what the ‘teaparty’ stands for — Small central government, State’s and INDIVIDUAL rights, capitalism – the ‘whigs’ were usurped by ‘Lincolns’ republicans .. (today’s democrats). BOTH establishment parties are progressive, big government — and have been for quite some time — and I do believe The People are weary — the Plantation isn’t producing; – ‘unsustainable’ isn’t just an Agenda 21 project. – A country that fails to PRODUCE is doomed to failure.

er — I believe it was March 27, 1861 — :-) “Sine Die” — Anyone that doesn’t understand, needs to DO THEIR HOMEWORK (Glenn Beck are YOU listening???)
March 7, 2014 at 7:53pm
bogus ‘war’ – no ‘enemy’ — which is exactly what they intended — perpetual ‘state of undeclared war’ allows them to ‘use’ the ‘war powers act’ which CONGRESS granted — they’re all complicit. – which makes them what? — correct — enemies of the Constitution FOR the united States. IMHO -
That would make them domestic enemies, would it not?
March 7, 2014 at 7:43pm
Lucky no play with scuba gear (?) — it’s ‘public’ domain — NO body ‘owns’ it .. ====> yet.
March 6, 2014 at 9:17pm
Yes, I’m SURE Mythbusters would ‘foil’ the propaganda networks’ plans to keep the People skeered — ‘don’t TRY this at home..’ Someplace it has been said that Necessity is the Mother of invention/innovation …. for real Americans, anyway ….
March 6, 2014 at 9:12pm
Having a ‘birth certificate’ implies consent — ask ANY ‘judge…’ — The Constitution either means what it says, or it doesn’t …. “Go FISH…”
March 6, 2014 at 8:26pm
Robert E Lee referred to his ‘adversaries’ as ‘those people,’ as well — The ‘lie’ then is the same lie being perpetuated today — ‘tea party’ (neo-confederates) believe the same thing — with the exception that it’s ok to ‘own’ another human being (?) –

The jingle back in the day was “2 all-beef’ (not pink slime) patties ‘SPECIAL’ sauce (think Thousand Island dressing – today – ‘we just don’t know’), lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun”. Clowns are ‘creepy,’ too — Thanks, Ron McDon! — That’s when we didn’t have to question the personnel, ingredients or price — much. Surprised there aren’t YET warning labels posted on doors, windows and pavement — but it’s coming…. just a few more successful ‘suits.’ 9 out of 10 flies also think eating p oo is a good idea,. ;-)

No disrespect intended, but —- Lincoln ‘did it.’ That ‘new birth of freedom’ he talked about wasn’t HIS idea – it belonged to the Federalists, particularly his mentor, Henry Clay (as opposed to the Jeffersonians) – whereby the Central government (D.C.) was ‘master’ and the States were subordinate – at the barrel of the G un. Primary ’cause’ similar to the Secession from England — TAXES. Have to DESTROY a thing to ‘save’ it – Modus operandi …. “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it seems to rhyme.” ~ Mark Twain Difference today is that there aren’t the geographical ‘territorial’ lines, so much as the ‘Constitutionalist Libertarians’ vs ‘socialists.’ – difficult to tell them apart without the uniforms – but NSA et al are working on that, me thinks. Best be able to whistle Dixie and the Battle Hymn of the Republic with equal enthusiasm … Auld Lang Syne — Tomorrow’s a new day.
