Canada Has No Separation of Church and State

Posted on July 5th, 2014 by Ben Spera

church canada e1404605272396 Canada Has No Separation of Church and StateOur friendly northern neighbor is often touted by American liberals for their free universal health-care and left-leaning tendencies. What they constantly forget to mention is that the country they claim to be so perfect also lacks the “separation of church and state” that they so passionately profess their love with.  Not only is their no implied legal separation, but their constitution appoints their government as an official sponsor of the Church of England, and therefor it’s child, the Anglican Church of Canada. Their country’s Charter of Rights and Constitution explicitly states “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” Their Head of State, the British Monarch, is also the Head of the Church of England and official “Defender of the Faith.” Read more…

U. S. Constitution Gives No Authority for Judicial Review

Posted on July 1st, 2014 by Ben Spera

gavel U. S. Constitution Gives No Authority for Judicial ReviewDespite the fact that the Supreme Court’s current case-load consists almost exclusively of judicial review cases, the Constitution gives the courts no authority to take such action. The courts assume this power based on a 1794 Supreme Court ruling which first declared a law unconstitutional. The power of judicial review is a serious conflict of interest issue, giving the federal government the power to judge the constitutionality of its own laws. It also gives an unintended amount of power to the judicial branch of the U.S. government, which was originally meant to be the weakest branch of the federal government. Read more…

reagan salutes e1403785557860 President Reagan Began Tradition of Returning Military SalutesNow days, when you see the President of the United States pass a U.S. Marine or another service-member you’ll see a quick exchange of salutes. Most don’t know that this tradition was only recently established. Prior to 1981, the service-member would salute the President, but it was never reciprocated until President Ronald Reagan began the custom. As you can probably imagine, even this seemingly innocent change didn’t come without it’s critics. Read more…

Madd Struggles to Stay Alive

Posted on June 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

stock MADD Madd Struggles to Stay AliveWhen I was a kid Mother Against Drunk Driving was huge. You saw their logo and name everywhere. Now despite all the DUI legislation they have passed, they refuse to quit and continue to push for more. The original founder, Candy Lightner, left the organization because it was becoming too “neo-prohibitionist”, later lobbying on behalf of the American Beverage Institute to fight legislation lowering the legal DUI limit to .08% BAC.

Posted on June 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Bq7lE zCQAEDtAE Thad Cocharan Sells Soul to Win Gop PrimarySen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) showed that there is no level “too low” to stoop to retain his seat in the U.S. senate. With his tea party challenger running away with it, Cochran made a deal with the devil, selling his soul for a few more years of power. As the runoff election got closer, Cochran’s desperate campaign began distributing flyers in black neighborhoods leveling ridiculous accusations of racism against his opponent, including efforts to suppress black voting. The flyers focused on encouraging democrats to come vote for Cochran in the republican primary. Read more…

Posted on February 14th, 2014 by Ben Spera

snowdenfact Ron Paul Launches Snowden Clemency PetitionFormer U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has launched a petition to grant NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden clemency so he may return home. Russia had granted him amnesty for a term of 1 year, but this amnesty runs out in in 5 months, at the end of July. Paul said of Snowden “[He] sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA’s worldwide spying program. Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.” Edward wants to return to his home but needs some degree of assurance that he won’t be persecuted.

Why Justice Roberts Could Be Protecting Obamacare

Posted on January 13th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Via Western Center for Journalism:

[repost img="http://blog.benspera.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/roberts2.jpg" title="Why John Roberts (Likely) Is Protecting Obamacare..." desc="On Monday, without comment (because he could not make a coherent one), Chief Justice John Roberts denied a request by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA for a stay in the implementation of Obamacare. The groups had made their application last Friday, arguing that since the bill had been declared a tax by the Supreme Court (with Justice Roberts himself the deciding vote), and it had originated in the Senate (the Constitution says revenue bills may not originate), the law was therefore unconstitutional; and implementation of Obamacare should at least be stayed pending further examination." url="http://www.westernjournalism.com/john-roberts-likely-protecting-obamacare/"]
