SCOTUS Renders Ruling – No Pillars of Salt

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on

scd 1The sun did indeed rise in the east this morning regardless of the ruling by the Supreme Court that same sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states and I drove around town yesterday…AFTER the ruling…and failed to notice even one pillar of salt.

In a 5-4 ruling, the Supremes decided that the same LEGAL standing…the same LEGAL protections and the same LEGAL benefits are to be extended to same sex married couples as are extended to opposite sex married couples.

It’s not the end of the world though you might have a different impression if you browse social media posts which include everything from the sky is falling to this is the end of our nation and the end of times.

Equal protection under the law has always been a hallmark of our Constitution and of our country although there are obviously some out there who believe those equal protections should extend only to those exactly like them.

Among those who are most distressed over the ruling are those who claim that this is an assault on religious freedom.

They are wrong in that interpretation as the ruling says nothing regarding nor does it interfere in any with religious precepts, religious doctrines or religious interpretations regarding marriage.

I’ll get back to that point shortly but before I do…

God v. The Constitution…Part 2 of 2

By Craig Andresen and Diane Sori –  Right Side Patriots on

gvc 1Yesterday, in Part 1 of our report, “God v. The Constitution,” we laid out the legal aspects of the upcoming Supreme Court case regarding same sex marriage but, at the bottom of all the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth however, is the mantra chanted endlessly by those on the far, far right and the holier than thou set…that being…”traditional biblical marriage is only between one man and one woman.”

What this really is, is the ultra-religious ascribing words either to the Bible or directly to God that simply aren’t true but let’s give them a chance and see how it lines up with the facts.

To imply that biblical marriage is between one man and one woman would need a Bible verse or passage as backing to make it fact however, no such verse or passage exists. In fact…the Bible never uses the word “marriage” nor in fact does the Bible ever define marriage. Sure, there are plenty of verses and passages regarding love or husbands and wives that one can look up but none of them, not one, offers any definition regarding the institution of marriage.

That said however, the Bible does offer a great deal of insight into “traditional” marriage.

God v. The Constitution…Part 1 of 2

By Craig Andresen and Diane Sori –  Right Side Patriots on

Let’s start with the bottom line…the ‘social issues’ belong to the states…period. And anyone who says otherwise does NOT know the Constitution…you know…that pesky little document Obama so loves to trample on.

The Constitution…the very document that defines our freedom and protects us from a tyrannical government (that is until Obama came along)… clearly and unequivocally states which powers will be delegated by law to each branch of government. And while amendments to the Constitution have been added that deal with specific ‘human rights’ (rights believed to belong equally to every person) those amendments still rightfully place limits on government powers in regards to those rights. And the ubber-religious far right, and even some centrist conservatives, do not understand that when ‘social issues’ cross the line into political fodder they themselves become what’s legally referred to as ‘constitutionally improper.’ And neither the federal government nor Obama himself…even when yielding his trusty pen and his phone… can legally choose which Constitutionally given ‘human rights’ to focus on…to fixate on…over the others. But the delegation of the so-called ‘social issues’ still must adhere with the Constitution not with Obama or with the socially conscious and many times judgmental ubber-religious far right.

Obamacare – Uber Truths About Utter Lies

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on

gruber 4So just who in THE hell IS Jonathan Gruber anyway?

I mean…other than the guy who has exposed liberals, democrats and socialists as being stupid American voters. At least in that respect, Uber Gruber is spot on in his assessment but who IS this guy?

Well…he has a degree in economics from MIT…we know that much and…I’m reasonably sure if you ask ensconced and elected liberals he has explosive diarrhea of the mouth as it seems, he has a penchant for telling the TRUTH…at THE most Inappropriate of times…an anathema for any liberal.

What seems to make Uber Gruber giddy is that he knows that he is eminently smarter than any liberal voter out there…on the street or in congress. He wallows about in his narcissism, marinating in it and while it doesn’t really take that much intelligence to back the claim…an I.Q. equal to the pot in which a houseplant resides would fill the bill…Gruber’s ability to fool Conservatives has now been proven to fall light years short of the mark.

Trust me liberals and socialists…

Liberals Need to Lobby for a New Hobby

hobby 1Man oh MAN…Monday’s Supreme Court decision on the Hobby Lobby case has left liberals, already barely hanging on by the last threads of one screw, completely unhinged.

Not at all surprisingly, the decision went 5-4 but liberals and their ideology that ALL of us should pay for what a FEW want, was struck down and more to the point, it was struck down because of Obamacare and Obama himself were not allowed to force ‘freedom FROM religion’ down We the People’s throats.

Five of the nine Justices agreed that a corporation, owned by those with deeply held religious beliefs could not be forced, upon mandate of government, to abandon those beliefs once they walked outside their doors or the doors of their chosen church.

For once, the Founders and Framers were smiling.

As the Founders and Framers set up our Constitution and specifically, the Bill of Rights, the 1st Amendment guarantees every American Freedom OF Religion. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” and this has today’s liberals all tied up in knots.

For instance…

Weekend Edition: Allen West – No Surrender

The election is over.

It’s done and the winners have been announced.


It’s not over. Not yet. Not in the state of Florida. There, the election continues but, not in the way it most certainly should.

It’s disgraceful.

Congressman Allen West waits.

In fact, Congressman West demanded a recount after it was announced that he had lost his bid for reelection. The margin of his loss was greater than the number which would trigger an automatic recount and a West Palm Beach Florida Judge, David Crow, denied a motion from West’s attorneys to impound ballots and voting machines from CD 18 and West’s “apparent” narrow loss to Patrick Murphy.

Why a motion to impound the voting machines and ballots?

The answer is both simple and staggering.

There are thousands of votes yet to be counted in Florida’s Congressional District 18. That’s Congressman West’s district.

8,000 or so votes yet to count.

Those uncounted votes belong to a very important group of voters.

Those are absentee ballots, cast by our military and they sit, in boxes, not being counted.

This is beyond disgusting. This is beyond absurd.

It’s a travesty of the process upon which this country was founded.

The travesty goes even deeper though.

Obamacare IS a Fundamental Transformation Tax

Obamacare is THE largest TAX INCREASE, the most deceitfully CONTRIVED and UNSCRUPULOUSLY passed bill in American history!!!

As a law, Chief Justice Roberts was absolutely CORRECT in finding it CONSTITUTIONAL as a TAX law and THAT is as FAR as I believe he could possibly go in his ruling. The Supreme Court had no choice but to hear arguments and adjudicate upon the MERITS of the law itself and in that light, Chief Justice Roberts was 100% correct or…Was he?

Here’s a MAJOR problem though…According to the Anti Injunction Act from March 2nd, 1867…NO TAX LAW CAN BE ADJUDICATED UNTIL AFTER IT TAKES EFFECT and in the case of Obamacare, the Supreme Court should NOT have ruled on it in whole…AS A TAX LAW…until after 2018 but that would require yet ANOTHER round in 2 years at the High Court.

Now then, what neither he nor any of the Supreme Court could do, considering the nature of the action by which it was BROUGHT to the Highest Court, was adjudicate it upon the MANNER in which it was passed. I suggest that had THAT aspect been the focus of the case, the outcome may well have been QUITE different.

Roberts and the Court found it to be a TAX law and CONSTITUTIONAL because it’s a TAX law.

Oh…Obama TOLD us it WASN’T a tax and that nobody in the middle class would see THEIR taxes go up…”Not one single dime.” But…And I know this will come as a GREAT shock…Obama was lying. He wasn’t misspoken. He wasn’t misquoted. He wasn’t taken out of context. He wasn’t misunderstood or any of the rest of the lame excuses so often used by politicians.

It’s NOT conservative spin, right wing propaganda, parsing of words, misrepresentation by the right, racist, scare tactics or any of the other things the liberal/socialists are want to use as dismissive talking points or labels either.

Obama was flat out, bald faced, down and dirty, through is teeth, without blinking an eye and without a second thought…


And one can EASILY believe he was LYING because HE, and a handful of others, KNEW that the ONLY way to obtain passage of Obamacare, was to proceed Unconstitutionally and WITHOUT a SHRED of ethics nor rules adhered to.

Here is how it went down and WHY it SHOULD be regarded as UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

From WHERE did the Obamacare TAX Come…EXACTLY??

Well…He tried, didn’t he?

The EMPEROR tried and tried and TRIED to convince us all that Obamacare was NOT a tax.

He said it and said it.

The EMPEROR told us it wasn’t a tax and he told us and TOLD us that under Obamacare…NOBODY would be taxed a SINGLE DIME.

The EMPEROR started telling us that the day he started the process and he KEPT telling us that it was not a tax right up to the very day his Solicitor General made the argument before the Supreme Court that…oh yes…It WAS a tax.

Then, last Thursday, in their ruling, The Supreme Court and the deciding Justice who wrote the opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts, made sure that we all knew, once and for all, that…

Obamacare IS a TAX and the only reason it is Constitutional is BECAUSE it’s a TAX.

So much for the high fives in the oval office.


“DOH…IT’S A TAX!!!!!”

According to the tweet of DNC Executive Director, Patrick Gaspard…

With today’s Supreme Court ruling, upholding Obamacare as Constitutional, the American People have LOST their individual sovereignty.

By allowing the federal government to MANDATE the American people purchase a good or service under the TAX code and not the Commerce Clause…The Federal Government now has a clear and unhindered path to MANDATE the purchase of ANYTHING any administration deems appropriate!!

The THREAT that the federal government would REMOVE ALL MEDICARE FUNDING from individual states should they OPT OUT of Obamacare HAS BEEN FOUND UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!

Does this mean that the High Court has ruled that individual states WILL be allowed to OPT OUT OF OBAMACARE ALTOGETHER? That much is unclear.


Without the ability to OPT OUT by the states, the ONLY conclusion which can be drawn from this ruling is…

What has been seen as the key provision in Arizona’s SB 1070, Section 2B, requiring law enforcement officers to check immigration status of those in contact with law enforcement for other reasons HAS been upheld by the United States Supreme Court!

The high court today basically allowed Section 2B to stand but also remanded it back to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

THAT means that, as soon as an Arizona Law Enforcement officer proceeds with such an immigration status check, it is very likely that a court challenge OF it will ensue and THAT case will proceed quickly to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The case is far from settled.

Basically, what the Supreme Court said was, regarding Section 2B, it cannot be ruled upon until it is in play IN Arizona and a challenge TO it has made its way back TO the Supreme Court.

3 other provisions of SB 1070 including making it illegal in Arizona for illegal aliens to seek work were struck down by the Supreme Court.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer HAS stated that her state WOULD, if portions of SB 1070 were struck down, begin to REDRAFT those provisions into a new law.
