Among liberals in Congress, leftists on the Supreme Court and the anti-Constitutionalist in the White House, the Constitution is an annoyance and can be redefined at will as a “living document.” Leftists want an all-powerful federal government and a powerless people who can be controlled by punishments or made dependent on handouts.

The plain meaning of the 14th Amendment means that one must BOTH be born in United States AND be subject to the jurisdiction thereof. Since there are two explicit requirements, they both cannot be met by simply being born on U.S. soil.
We stand with our police officers, we stand with our fire fighters, with our EMS, with our first responders. These are brave men and women who risk their lives keeping us safe. We are seeing a manifestation of the rhetoric and vilification of law enforcement that is coming from the top — all the way to the President of the United States and senior administration officials.
“I want to note the remarkable relations between Israel and the United States, but I also want to note on this awful deal – not only for Israel but also for America,” he emphasized. “This is a regime that promotes terror in the Middle East,” he said of Iran. “I’m happy that Senator (Robert) Menendez joined us in protesting the deal. We all need to be worried by the agreement.”
Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas WASHINGTON – While other Republican presidential candidates are taking swipes at front-runner Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is instead joining forces with him to try to stop President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Now Harry Reid wants to deny the American people a voice entirely by blocking an up-or-down vote on this terrible deal. If Harry Reid has his way, Congress won’t even get the little oversight we were provided in Corker-Cardin.
“This is one of the most disgusting, foul things I’ve ever heard. We’ve got to let people about what the military’s doing, how the lawyers are running the show. Martland’s got to stay in. These are the kind of people we want on the ground fighting for us. These are the kind of guys I want protecting me and my kids.”
For those of us who are elected officials, few votes will be more consequential than whether to approve or disapprove the nuclear agreement President Obama has reached with Iran.

This is unacceptable and plainly violates the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act—a law the president signed only weeks ago.
