Danny Bedwell (Congressional Liberty Candidate) quote on the F.A.I.R. Pledge

Standard

After MS Senator and US Senate Candidate became the first to sign the F.A.I.R. Pledge, I wanted to get a more well rounded view on the issue from more than one perspective.

Here is what Congressional Candidate Danny Bedwell had to say about the F.A.I.R. Pledge and his opinion on immigration.

I will not sign the F.A.I.R pledge as it wont really accomplish anything, and it’s really just a political ploy to energize the base (the Republican base). It’s red meat for them, but will not amount to any significant changes in policy. 

Immigration should be as painless and as efficient as possible. People should be able to cross the border and become an American as quick as possible. I think if someone wants to come here and try to better their condition, we should not get in their way. 

One of the things were going to have to do, is stop the welfare from the State. If we do this, the immigrants that are just coming here to get on the dole, will stop coming here. Get rid of all of the Government perks for “being a citizen”, and then loosen out immigration laws. Once we stop the welfare (for everyone), the only immigrants coming here, will be the ones looking to make a better life for themselves and their families. I have no problem with immigrants coming here looking to better their condition, but I have serious problems with immigrants (and Americans)coming here to get on the public dole. 

As far as coming here “legally”……my ancestors came to this land in 1659. They came here against the wishes of the ruling authority. They sneaked in. Had the King of England known that my 8th gr-grandfather was coming here, he would have hung him for sure. This is one reason that I have never been fond of the ruling authority (the Government) deciding who can enter the country, and who cant. 

We have a court system in this country. This court system applies to all people, regardless of nationality. If one person commits burglary, rape, murder, extortion, theft, etc…..then they should be prosecuted and thrown in the hoosegow, regardless of nationality. 

If we can get a handle on the welfare system, and get a handle on our system of jurisprudence, then there would be no reason at all to inhibit immigration. Protection of jobs is not sufficient warrant. In fact, I would argue that this protectionism in the labor force, contributes to jobs going overseas. If we want to be competitive in world markets, then we need to be competitive in the labor market (as well as the natural resources market) 

Bottom line,….stop all forms of welfare,…..make immigration easier, to where only the hard working immigrants looking to better their condition are coming…..and become competitive again in foreign markets.

 

 

Bedwell is a Libertarian Party candidate and is runny against the incumbent Allen Nunnelee. Allen’s Voting Record indicates he votes are inconsistent and a Libertarian serve the Liberties of the American people much better.

MS Senator Chris McDaniel Calls Sour Immigration “Crony Capitalism”! Pledges to oppose it.

Standard

Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel is now the first to sign the F.A.I.R. (Federation for American Immigration Reform) Pledge.

F.A.I.R. is for “True” immigration reform. This includes: 

No Amnesty, Secure Boarders, End Visa Overstays, Stopping The Hiring Of Non Legal Workers, Enforcement Of Current Laws, Implement A Merritt Based Immigration Selection Process,  End Family Chain Migration, Limit Overall Immigration Numbers, and Support The American Worker.

Brietbart.com quoted McDaniel saying:

    

“What we’ve seen over the past several years is a combination of wage stagnation, growth in welfare programs and even shrinking workforce participation. That comes in large part because of out of control illegal immigration but also because of increased numbers of legal immigration,” McDaniel said. “We have millions of Americans who don’t have a job, plus we have millions who are on public benefits,” he said. “How about we find a way to put those people back to work?”

 

“It is a form of crony capitalism, and Haley Barbour is dead wrong about this—and by extension Sen. Cochran is dead wrong about this,” McDaniel said. “That’s why you see a number of those individuals [both leftwing and rightwing special interests] who normally don’t share much in common reaching across the aisle and compromising on this issue. But this issue is not subject to compromise. This is one of those issues where we must draw a line in the sand and be strong and courageous,” he added.

This Is Why Harry Reid Used The Term “Domestic Terrorists”

Standard

We have already established Harry Reid’s Communist connections to the Bundy Ranch.  I also posted the missing BLM documents (that someone paid a lot of money to have deleted from google cache) that link the cattle on the Bundy Farm to holding up or impairing the Solar Project.

 

Image

It seems that the US Senator instead of stepping down and doing the honorable thing, will double down with Hitler / Stalin style Authoritarianism by using the Patriot Act.

Reid was quoted saying this about the NON VIOLENT Civil disobedience (like Rosa Parks):
“Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,”

If  classified as Domestic Terrorists, these people will be subject to the provisions of the Patriot Act.

SEC. 802. DEFINITION OF DOMESTIC TERRORISM.

`(5) the term `domestic terrorism’ means activities that–

`(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;

`(B) appear to be intended–

`(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;

`(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or

`(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

`(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.’.

If you read it like I did, then yes, anyone who was at the Bundy Ranch falls under this very wide spectrum of definition.

Sec 206, 507, 215, 218  allows them to be surveilled and lets the FBI go through all of their records public / private without a warrant, which completely excludes them from the 4th Amendment protections our founders set in place.

Under the NDAA of 2012 Clause 1021 allows the government to detain these individuals via Military FORCE!

Image

Harry Reid is basically calling Gandhi, Rosa Parks, and our founding fathers (who also engaged in acts of Civil Disobediance against the law) terrorists to exploit his power as a politician using the tools he voted for.  He voted for the Patriot Act and he voted for the NDAA bill.

Everyone in the world is watching this one.

Here Is The Missing BLM Site Page

Standard

Some of the Text:
The Bold directly cites the trespass of Cattle directly impacts the solar farm project.

Here is a link to download the PDF.

Examples of Recent Incidents of Private Property Damage Caused by Bundy’s Trespass Cattle

  • One feral cow was hit by an automobile within Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Cattle are frequently seen on public
    roads, including State Route 170 and pose a danger to vehicles and to members of the public traveling on public roads.
  • Overton Wildlife Refuge (State of Nevada) employee attacked by a Bundy bull.
  • Crop destroyed by Bundy cattle on private land.
  • Mesquite Heritage Community Garden damaged by trespass cattle.
  • Mesquite golf course damaged by trespass cattle.

Examples of Restoration Funding and Viability Impacted

  • A $400,000 matching grant to restore Southwest Willow Flycatcher habitat along the Virgin River from the Walton Family
    Foundation was withdrawn until the trespass cattle have been removed.
  • A $160,000 Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act project to restore Southwestern Willow Flycatcher has been delayed until trespass cattle are removed.
  • Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle. [boldface is ours]
  • The Nevada State Department of Wildlife has built extensive fences to protect state and federal lands protected as the Overton Wildlife Refuge from the trespass cattle.

Examples of Public Concerns

  • Residents of the communities of Bunkerville and Mesquite have complained about the impact of cattle on city facilities. Within the last month, letters requesting action have also been received from several individuals, Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Friends of Gold Butte and Friends of Joshua Tree Forest.
  • The Center for Biological Diversity has demanded action to resolve trespass in designated critical desert tortoise habitat in several letters. Western Watersheds has requested a verbal status update and later filed a Freedom of Information Act request.

Examples of Natural and Cultural Resource Damage

  • Cattle have crushed artifacts at the “Red Racer” and St. Thomas cultural sites.
  • Damage to springs, including fecal contamination, trampling soils and vegetation and impacts to wildlife. Wildlife will avoid
    springs with large numbers of cattle.
  • Damage to springs with sensitive amphibians, including the rare relict leopard frog.
  • Multiple instances of vegetation damage to rare plants, including on monitoring plots after extensive wildfires within critical
    habitat for Desert Tortoise.
  • Unauthorized reservoir constructed with bulldozer twice.

The Religious Freedom Bill has nothing to do with gay people

Standard

The left are yelling about nothing.  They claim that the bill allows a business owner to discriminate against gay people.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  

Did they actually read the THE MISSISSIPPI RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION  ACT?  No.

The language of the bill that pertains to “discrimination” reads:

TO PROVIDE THAT STATE ACTION OR AN ACTION BY ANY PERSON BASED
3 ON STATE ACTION SHALL NOT BURDEN A PERSON’S RIGHT TO THE EXERCISE
4 OF RELIGION;

It clearly states the State cannot discriminate against you for your religion.  It cannot deny you any public service because of your religion. 

It only pertains to public funds and not private businesses. Sec I (d)

So why are they mad?  All the main stream media bigotry continues.


Image

Sec I defines the language for this statement in the bill:

(a) “Burden” means any action that directly or
14 indirectly constrains, inhibits, curtails or denies the exercise
15 of religion by any person or compels any action contrary to a
16 person’s exercise of religion. “Burden” includes, but is not
17 limited to, withholding benefits, assessing criminal, civil or
18 administrative penalties or exclusion from governmental programs
19 or access to governmental facilities.

) “Compelling governmental interest” means a
21 government interest of the highest magnitude that cannot otherwise
22 be achieved without burdening the exercise of religion.
23 (c) “Exercise of religion” means the practice or
24 observance of religion. “Exercise of religion” includes, but is
25 not limited to, the ability to act or the refusal to act in a
26 manner that is substantially motivated by one’s sincerely held
27 religious belief, whether or not the exercise is compulsory or
28 central to a larger system of religious belief.
29 (d) “State action” means the implementation or
30 application of any law, including, but not limited to, state and
31 local laws, ordinances, rules, regulations and policies, whether
32 statutory or otherwise, or any other action by the state, a
33 political subdivision of the state, an instrumentality of the
34 state or political subdivision of the state, or a public official
35 that is authorized by law in the state.
36 (3) (a) State action or an action by any person based on
37 state action shall not burden a person’s right to exercise of
38 religion, even if the burden results from a rule of general
39 applicability, unless it is demonstrated that applying the burden
40 to that person’s exercise of religion in that particular instance
41 is both of the following:
42 (i) Essential to further a compelling governmental
43 interest; S. B. No. 2681 *SS26/R476PS* ~ OFFICIAL ~
14/SS26/R476PS
PAGE 3

44 (ii) The least restrictive means of furthering
45 that compelling governmental interest.
46 (b) A person whose exercise of religion has been
47 burdened or is likely to be burdened in violation of this section
48 may assert that violation or impending violation as a claim or
49 defense in a judicial proceeding, regardless of whether the state
50 or a political subdivision of the state is a party to the
51 proceeding. The person asserting that claim or defense may obtain
52 appropriate relief, including relief against the state or a
53 political subdivision of the state. Appropriate relief includes,
54 but is not limited to, injunctive relief, declaratory relief,
55 compensatory damages, and the recovery of costs and reasonable
56 attorney’s fees.

While Mississippians were distracted by the Religious Freedom Bill, Gov Bryant attempts to circumvent their freedoms.

Standard

The Religious Freedom Bill is not the only thing on the agenda from Phil Bryant.  He called an emergency legislative session on Wednesday to talk about another issue, while the media is focused on the current bill he signed into law.

Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi is in the news for signing a new Religious Freedom Bill that says state and local governments cannot put a substantial burden on religious practices, a measure that sparked debate about possible discrimination against all kinds of people.

What it is actually for is to protect Christians from mandating they buy a certain type of contraceptive that kills the fetus inside the woman.  Opponents say that it could cause discrimination and economic damage because it resembles the one vetoed in Arizona recently, but supporters say that it does not resemble that bill at all.

This is a huge story, but to make this even more distracting is that Gov Bryant made a requested to include in that legislation to add “In God We Trust” to the State emblem.

_h845_w1500_m2_bwhite

So what was he doing while you are distracted with this bill?

In his special session he called, he stated wants to add more government to the 2015 Executive Budget Recommendation.  He wants to do this by adding more assistant district attorneys after he talked with the Mississippi Prosecutors Association.  No mention of adding more public defenders.

Image

“Public prosecutors in Mississippi are understaffed, which causes backlogs and inefficiencies in the judicial process. These same prosecutors will be responsible for implementing many of the criminal justice reforms we have signed into law. We must provide additional assistant prosecutors,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “With this special session, lawmakers have the time to provide more prosecutors for the state and strengthen prosecution of felons and drug traffickers. Because the special session is concurrent with the regular session, no additional travel is required by lawmakers; I urge them to waive additional per diem reimbursements and save taxpayer dollars while they get this work done.”

Image

The USA leads the world in incarceration rates according to several sources including Statista.  Mississippi is consistently in the top 3 top States in incarceration rate and we are currently #2 in incarceration rates, right behind Louisiana.

Does Gov Phil Bryant want to catch up to LA and become # in throwing people in cages for profit?
How can he claim to be Tea Party while doing this and endorsing Thad Cochran instead of Chris McDaniel for Senate?

Incarceration and prison labor has become a new form of slavery and we must fight against putting so many behind bars for victim-less crimes.

Although no proposals could be agreed upon before the session ended, you can bet he will continue to push the issue without much publicity.

We have to stop giving this guy slack.
