A White House petition gathering force calls for citizenship to be stripped and exile for anyone who signs a petition in favor of a state´s secession. "Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported," the full petition reads. The title of the petition is, "WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them." As of this writing, 2,205 have signed the petition;
Certainly proves the ignorance of Obamabots who have no comprehension of, or respect for the Constitution. Penalty for excercising their free speech rights? This is really a communist country under Obama. Send in the jackboots.
amen #1..amen..but does anyone (besides us)see the absolute horror this will lead to? why stop at stripping the citizens birthrights...why not strip those who dont follow obamacare? or even those who disagree with duh won? you all see where this going,right?
This is getting fun. Bring us together Saint Obama. Entertain us with shirtless photos and tales of sex in the military. Who cares if the payment is a stolen election and four dead Americans. Don´t look over there. That´s no fun. Look at the little man with his shirt off.
They can´t round up and deport those who are here illegally now. How do the people putting forth this petition think the gov´t is going to strip citizenship and deport those who signed the secession petitions? Maybe they think the gov´t has an arsenal of black helicopters to round up people, but they forget Obama has cut military spending back so far we´re lucky we can get a helicopter to fly David Petraeus to DC to testify before Congress about Benghazi!
This petition shows exactly how these libs,socialists,democrats think. They want the president to be a dictator with the power to make executive orders that do anything they want, to include stripping people of their citizenship. The constitution is just a piece of paper to them. If they had a brain cell, it would be lonesome, but then, they are the product of our public education system
I am with #10. They say they cannot round up and deport those who are here illegally from other countries. But yes, let´s round up those who object to what you and yours are doing to our fair country and ship them out... we have lots of dollars to do that.
But if they ship us all out, who is going to pay the bills? Huh? Huh?
These commies, these birth certificate challenged half-wits wouldn´t last a 30 days if we (and the rest) did pull out.
Harry Reid and Pee-low-see would cut their own throats, and Hollywood would just swoon away.
It´s the conservative, creative middle class (read this Tea Party) that keeps this national ship afloat and the wealthy democraps in Gucci loafers and handbags, and the so-called poor in ham hocks, blow, weed, Bud, abortions (keeping the....down, see Randy Newman here)and flat screen tee-vees.
Anyway, sounds like war to me and the socialists don´t have a clue in what they are getting into.
Talk about no jobs!
Time to clean out Texas. Time to clean out the U.S.
They are now fighting the battle of despotism. They have put their Constitution under their feet; they have annulled its most sacred provisions; The future fortunes of our children, and of this continent, would then be determined by a tyranny which has no parallel in history.” Dr. James Henly Thornwell of South Carolina, in Our Danger and our Duty, 1862
How about a petition stating that anyone who signs a petition denying citizens the right to petition be denied their citizenship and their right to petition. Further any illegal alien who signs ANY petition be sent immediately to their homeland and/or Kenya.
A little history: In the 1950´s and early 60´s the US Dept of State used to take away the citizenship of American expats for the crime of remaining outside the US for more than 5 continuous years. In the mid-60´s the courts ruled that native-born Americans did not receive their citizenship from the government and that therefore the government could not take away that citizenship. -tr [working from memory]
all the senior citizens are considered UNITS by the obama administration..thats why they will not get health care as they dont contribute to society......so I would say they are already in exile...only thing they are needed for is to pay taxes...
"deport" hmmm, wow, does this mean i finally get to "visit" the open-air rec/work/showers? Or will I get "deported" with some of them there hollow point requisitions?
I´ll see your deportation and add Gold Standard for my state. BTW, Montana´s Constitution gurantees Montanans´ gun rights and the attendant right to secede if the federal government attempts to revoke them.
Good times, good times! Or the more appropriate Chinese curse, May you live in interesting Times. Yeehahh. Let ´er rip.
One lost election does not change my goals: That government by, of, for the people NOT perish from the earth.
My family came to this land in 1750. German Anabaptists. I am a fourth generation Hoosier, at least four generations from Pennsyltuckee before that. I intend to be buried in this country...one way or another.
This talk about secession is getting more stupid as it expands. The most stupid statement has got to be about stripping the citizenship of anyone signing a petition. There´s no basis in law for that and in my opinion that would infringe on the signers freedom of speed rights. A petition is only a request for something to be done.
Secondly, I have seen posts that Texas has the right to secede. That is can´t be true. Texas tried that in the 1860´s and was on the losing side of the war that settled the question of a state´s right to secede.
The special right that only Texas has is that it can split into five states. That would add four states to country and get present day Texas eight more Senators. That right was granted to Texas at the time it was admitted to the Union in 1845.
As posted earlier my opinion of secession by any state would be like curing a headache with the guillotine. I restate that opinion here.
I agree with #1...anyone who voted for O should have an O tatooed on their foreheads so that we can keep track of them. But this article shows how Stalinist the WH really is...with his policies he will never preserve the union...
#34 With all respect, if the talk bothers you, you can choose to skip such articles posted. People can dream can´t they? Besides, sometimes in the course of civil discussion - no matter the subject - a great idea gets born. Personally, I find myself enjoying a great many conversations on this board even if I disagree with the initial concept put forth.
We either can sit by and complain bitterly or we can get off our duffs and do something. If it be by secession then so be it. Whatever we do let’s stick together and get it done. Many states have tried as individuals to secede but not since 1861 (unless I am wrong) have several states tried to secede together as a group and stuck to their guns. "There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!" Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
Someone once said it better than I could ever express ... let me see ... it´s right on the tip of my tongue - oh, that´s right: When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature´s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Therefore; whether I agree with secession or not, it is our right. And whatever happened to the quote liberals just adore? You know, ´´I disagree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it.´´
No disrespect to Macaulay Culkin (#ALLDISRESPECTTOTHEPIGEONLADY), but we prefer The Pet Collective´s retelling of Home Alone to the original movie. Mostly because Kevin McCallister is now played by an adorable pug puppy. And if a pug puppy setting booby traps for teddy bear burglars isn´t adorable enough for you, the video also narrated by a small child. So forget Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Forget Elf. This is the only Christmas movie you need to watch this year. (Snip for video)As you might suspect, the pug, named Jackson Rosa, could not be more over it...
I’m not sure what Chris Matthews was doing with President Obama yesterday, but it wasn’t hardball. It wasn’t even softball. It was more like wiffle ball. Everyone knew going in that the MSNBC host would be a sympathetic interviewer. But he knew he would be graded on his aggressiveness, so I expected at least a few fastballs. Uh uh. Instead, in a half-hour sitdown, there was one challenging question. Just one. It was as though Matthews was channeling Jay Carney. Matthews is a likable guy with a passion for politics, but he left his interviewing chops at the door. The
WASHINGTON — Sen. Ted Cruz, elected 13 months ago by actual voters, said Thursday he’d prefer to see state legislators pick U.S. senators – as they were until a century ago, when the 17th Amendment came along. Direct election of senators has eroded states’ rights, Cruz argued, speaking to a ballroom filled with conservative state lawmakers from around the country. “If you have the ability to hire and fire me,” he said, “I’m a lot less likely to break into your house and steal your television. So there’s no doubt that was a major step toward the explosion of federal power and
I´m sitting at my desk, looking at a photograph of a gangrenous foot. It is a bloated thing in hues of phlegmatic gray rot, sanguine inflammation, melancholic black bile, and choleric open sores — exhibiting all the humors of a meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council. Above the photograph, in bold white capitals on a dull, matte background are the words “smoking causes peripheral vascular disease.” The photograph is helpfully labeled “gangrene.” Below the photograph, in a bland sans-serif typeface with letters an eighth of an inch high, is “Marlboro Red.” This is a pack of Australian cigarettes,
Come January, when some number of Americans have bought insurance on the new health exchanges and are starting to use the services, you can expect another controversy to arise when many of them find out just how few doctors and hospitals they have access to. Call it “doc shock,” though the biggest outcry will not come when people try to schedule an appointment with their physician, but when someone gets sick and they learn they cannot go to whatever top-notch hospital they want, only to the hospital that is included in their plan. The problem varies across the country. In Washington,
Last month in San Francisco, President Obama called on Congress to enact comprehensive immigration reform. His speech was novel in many respects: The president used the backdrop of a community center in Chinatown to remind voters that immigrants are racially diverse. Also, for the first time in prepared remarks, the president signaled that he would consider a piecemeal approach to immigration reform long favored by Republican leaders in the House of Representatives. What got the most attention, however, was an unscripted exchange between Obama and Ju Hong, an undocumented UC Berkeley graduate who interrupted the president, calling on him to use
No matter how you spell it, ice is a four letter word Friday. Just ask folks living anywhere from Texas to Tennessee. Those areas are in the bulls eye of a treacherous ice storm, threatening to coat everything in its path with up to an inch of frozen water. Ice is slippery, but also heavy. It tends to bring down tree limbs and power lines when accumulations get thick. In Tennessee, Memphis Light, Gas and Water has 426,000 customers and is ready for the worst. "MLGW employees have been monitoring this winter storm situation and we have all of our
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
