The problem with affirmative action in one picture

“The true story of an Indian American who got into medical school by pretending to be an African American.”


“My plan actually worked. Lucky for you, I never became a doctor.”

A Sign of Citizenship, by Kevin D Williams

The bearing of arms is a sign of citizenship, which is to say, of being a full participant in government who acts through it, as opposed to subjectship, the state of being a passive being who does not act through government but who is acted upon. In that sense, it is like the ability to vote or to be eligible for service in government. Frederick Douglass understood this linkage perfectly, inasmuch as these ideas were much better understood in those more literate days. “A man’s rights rest in three boxes,” he said. “The ballot box, jury box, and the cartridge box. Let no man be kept from the ballot box because of his color. Let no woman be kept from the ballot box because of her sex.” The militias contemplated by the Second Amendment were armed citizen volunteers who could act to use the force of arms to keep the peace in an emergency; they are entitled to act in the peacekeeping role generally reserved for the state because, being the citizens of a republic, they are the state, the very seat of its sovereignty.

Crisis at the Canadian Border

Crisis at the Canadian Border – A Look at the Consequences of a Republican Presidential Win in November


The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration. The Republican Presidential primary campaign is prompting an exodus among left leaning citizens who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, and live according to conservative ideas about the Constitution.


Canadian border farmers say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, global warming activists, and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night.


“I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said Southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota . “The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn’t have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?”


In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields, but they just keep coming.


Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into electric cars and drive them across the border where they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies.


“A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions,” an Ontario border patrolman said. “I found one carload without a single bottle of Perrier drinking water. They did have a nice little Napa Valley cabernet, though, and some kale chips.”


When liberals are caught, they’re sent back across the border, often wailing loudly that they fear retribution from conservatives. Rumors have been circulating about plans being made to build re-education camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer and study the Constitution.


In recent days, liberals have turned to ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have been disguised as senior citizens taking a bus trip to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half- dozen young vegans in blue-hair wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to prove that they were alive in the ’50s. “If they can’t identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become very suspicious about their age,” an official said.


Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage, buying up all the Barbara Streisand c.d.’s, and renting all the Michael Moore movies. “I really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can’t support them,” an Ottawa resident said. “How many art-history majors does one country need?”

Greg Walden: Abuse of Executive Power


Good news in the fight against abuse of executive power and Obamacare: a federal court has ruled in favor of the U.S. House of Representatives in a lawsuit against the Administration’s unconstitutional use of taxpayer dollars to subsidize health insurers.

The Obama administration has repeatedly abused executive power and flouted basic Constitutional principles. In November 2014, the House responded by passaging a resolution I strongly supported that empowered Speaker of the House John Boehner to file a lawsuit in making the case that the administration spent taxpayer money that Congress never authorized or appropriated for such purpose. Last week, a federal court agreed with our case and followed the plain meaning of the Constitution and upheld the rule of law.

While the Administration plans to appeal the ruling, know that I will continue to fight to protect our Constitutional rights and to rein in wasteful spending at every opportunity.  This decision sends a clear message that the executive branch must follow the Constitution and respect the role of Congress

It is an honor to represent you in the U.S. Congress.


Best regards,

Greg Walden

The Cause of Economic Malaise

Some clear facts presented in this video that tend to be forgotten over time. The media doesn’t dwell on it.

In short, Democrats in congress during the Bush era caused the recession by trying to buy votes through the housing market.

The same democrats keep the recession going today.

John Boehner: Cruz is “Lucifer in the flesh”

There is a huge divide in the R party right now on “Establishment” vs “Non-Establishment”. Hopefully it’s not permanent and can be worked out.

The normally mild-mannered Mike Lee (R-UT) defends Ted Cruz. Mike Lee is rated as the #1 conservative with a CR Liberty score of 100%, the only Senator so rated.
