Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Rand Paul's Filibuster: Is Obama Seeking To Violate the Constitution?

Rand Paul, (R Ky) is launching a filibuster of John Brennan as Director of CIA.  He's doing that because it is been intimated by Attorney General, Eric Holder that the Obama Regime has such authority.  If our government is "reserving the right to execute" American citizens in our country who have not face a trial by jury, that's clearly a violation of the

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

...of the US Constitution.  That's an impeachable offense to say the very least.  Furthermore, it's very near (if not de facto) reason for launching an insurrection against the Federal government.  I hope Mr. Paul is successful in forcing the Obama  regime to repudiate this unconstitutional act.

Additionally, if this government follows through on it's threat to execute American citizens on US soil, without Constitutionally required steps, that government becomes illegitimate...and THAT is a leap that I don't think that the Obama Regime is quite ready to take. I sure as hell hope they don't because that will lead to a constitutional crisis that we've not faced since the Civil War.

On the other hand, this would explain why Democrats are trying so vociferously to restrict access to firearms.  Also, it would explain why DHS has been buying up millions of rounds of ammunition.  They may well be getting ready to try and confiscate American's firearms, and reduce our ability to defend ourselves from the tyranny of the Federal government.
