White House website deluged with
secession petitions from 20 states

Daily Caller, by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/12/2012 12:40:57 PM

How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question. On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White House’s website received a petition asking the administration to allow Louisiana to secede. If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.

"it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House"

REALLY? And who would force them to do so? Our Republican leadership?

One does not ask for "permission" to secede. One does it and prepares for the inevitable response. Dictatorship cannot allow productive "elements" (producers, slaves). to escape, since it will foster more slaves escaping and eventual collapse. Therefore if such an event looks likely and more subtle means cannot be brought to bear, then the people who call themselves "government" will not hesitate to murder on whatever scale is necessary to stamp out rebellion.

The federal government has beomce too large, too powerful, too oppressive, too dangerous, and too redistributive. I beleive the founding fathers intended for the states to be independent entities only loosely coupled for the benefit of interstate commerce and a common defense. Anything beyond that impinges on the state´s sovereignty. One way to push the reset button is to allow states out so they may be free to control their own destiny. If a place like Belize can be its own country, so can Texas.

I am reminded of the great transmigration of Hindus and Muslims between India and Pakistan as shown in the movie "Ghandi". It´s about time we separated ourselves from this poison, this disease.

Unfortunately, over time, the Progressive States of America would devolve into Morlocks or, even worse, Gaza-like Islamonazis. Our Conservative States of America would always be at war with them. They would covet what we had and would try to take it by force. Inevitably there would be a nuclear armed confrontation.

But #7, we do have all the real men and strong women. We have skills, determination, a work ethic and as an added bonus, all the guns. When it all hits the fan, and it will, we might lose, but we will go down with a hell of a fight that will shake the so called winners to the core of their very being.

Their weapons are lies, freebees, retoric, paper pushing. Just look how those pansies in NJ/NYC are behaving after a storm. They can not survive in the real world. We will win that battle, which is the only one that will count.

Before they petition to secede, they should protest the election results.Data shows that in some precincts 1000% of the vote went to Obama, that is, out of 19K people, NOT ONE voted for Romney , and that is preposterous. also in many precincts, there were more votes cast than registered voters, and some by a large %. THAT is FRAUD. Anywhere this happened ,all voting data should be impounded and recounted. In the precincts where not one vote was cast for Romney, The GOP lawyers should advertise in various ways for at least 5 or 10 people to come forth who voted for Romney. Then pursue a recount in these precincts also. Every voting machine in the country should be impounded and everywhere
the data appears impossible, GOP lawyers should look for legal recourse. While none of this is entirely impossible, it is most highly improbable. We were already aware of voting machines that did not register the correct vote, but switched names. Lets open this up to verify the results as being accurate. I cannot understand why the GOP
has not fought back.

Hubby and I have a plan. If his job in Minnesota goes away because of Obama, we are moving to Texas. He will probably have to take early retirement, but that´s ok. We both want out of this crazy blue state that elected Al Franken and Mark Dayton...how embarrassing! And now they´ve given Dayton a democratic state legislature, so all is lost. We want OUT! Now if we could just sell our house, the housing market really stinks here so it will probably be a loss for us.

Top hiring officials at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency broke federal civil service laws when they tried to hire three politically connected but unqualified candidates who were favored by the agency’s then-commissioner, a government watchdog charged Tuesday. The human resources office was warned that choosing the candidates, political appointees who worked on President Obama’s 2008 campaign and were then hired at the Department of Homeland Security, CBP’s parent agency, would circumvent laws designed to create a fair competition for federal jobs. But the staff pressed ahead anyway to please their boss, Alan Bersin, the incoming head of CBP in 2010,

Three leading Senate Republicans say the recent testimony of former CIA acting and deputy director Michael Morell before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on the Benghazi talking points was not only inaccurate, it was misleading. "Michael Morell´s testimony last week to me was not remotely credible," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters. Along with then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Morell met with the Sens. Graham, Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and John McCain,R-Ariz., in November 2012. They say Morell blamed the FBI for key changes to the flawed explanation that blamed a protest for the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on

Obama Agrees GOP is ‘Un-American’

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama traveled to Texas where he attended a memorial for the victims of last week’s shooting at Fort Hood. Following that memorial service, the president joined supporters at a Democratic fundraiser at what the Associated Press described as an “opulent,” “resort-like” Houston home. There, he chided Republicans for failing to support the White House’s push for legislation aimed at securing equal pay for women and restricting access to the polls. He agreed with one supporter who called Republicans “un-American.” According to the report, the president focused on the Senate’s failure to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act

Smart power for the 21st century

By the turn of the 21st century, it was clear that a new approach to the use of American power to protect our national interests and values was necessary. At the risk of some over-simplification, by the end of former President George W. Bush’s second term, essentially two lines of thinking had emerged. On the right was a preference for the use of “hard power” — the use of military force and intervention to protect U.S. interests. On the left was a growing bias against military intervention of any kind and in favor of “soft power” — economic aid and

Conservatives are increasingly targeting House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, arguing that he has abandoned conservative principles and protesting his planned meeting with moderate and liberal Republicans. Mr. Cantor, who just a few years ago was seen as a champion for conservatives in the House and a possible candidate to replace House Speaker John A. Boehner, now is viewed with suspicion, said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican.“I think that Boehner can survive the discontent that the tea party and the more conservative element of the Republican Party has, but I don’t think that is true of Cantor,” Mr. Rohrabacher told The

A federal court Wednesday ordered the University of North Carolina-Wilmington to promote and give $50,000 in back pay to a conservative professor in what is described as a landmark anti-discrimination case. The restitution was ordered three weeks after a jury found the university guilty of retaliating against criminology professor Mike Adams, a popular conservative columnist on Townhall.com, after denying him a promotion to full professor in 2006. “This ruling sends a message to public universities: Academic freedom isn’t just for the Left, it’s a constitutional right for all professors — even Christian conservatives,” said David French, senior counsel at the conservative American

Lewis, a civil rights icon and the only surviving speaker from the 1963 March on Washington, said Congress needs to pass reform — and that the American public must pressure it to do so. "The most pressing need for young people and for older Americans, for all of us, is to move with all deliberate speed to create a truly multicultural, multiracial democratic society.

Terry Branstad signed a proclamation for Muslim Recognition Day in Iowa, something the Republican chief executive first did in 1992 during his previous tenure as governor. About 50 Iowa Muslims joined him in the governor´s formal office and applauded during a signing ceremony.

Drivel, drivel, toil and snivel… Two months ago, I predicted that Jeb Bush would be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. The case was simple. With Chris Christie’s nascent presidential campaign fatally imploding and the rest of the GOP field too weak to stop the Hillary Clinton juggernaut, a panicked Republican establishment was bound to turn to a known, safe, and relatively centrist quantity to serve as its standard bearer. There are many more words in the article but that first paragraph was all that he really wanted to say: “Real conservative candidates weak, Hillary JUGGERNAUT!” “Juggernaut” in this

Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan are collaborating on an Obamacare alternative and could announce the proposal as early as this month, according to Republican sources. Both Republicans have been regularly engaged in pushing legislation on major issues — and both have made it a habit to form cross-chamber partnerships to further those endeavors. But this particular partnership is notable given the high-profile nature of health care reform and that Rubio, Florida´s junior senator, and Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman from Wisconsin, are both considered possible contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

Little Rock — An elderly couple was attacked at a restaurant when they asked a woman to refrain from cursing while talking on a cell phone, according to police. The incident happened at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs road. In the police report, Don Francis, 74 and his wife Bettye Francis, 69, say they were attacked by Joecelyn Thornton, 33, after Francis asked her to stop cursing. In the surveillance video, a woman can be seen walking over to a table and pushing Francis. His wife intervenes and that´s when Thornton allegedly attacks her, pushing her into a table and punching

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged
