State after state were merely "declared ratified" in the absence of any documentation of any action on the part of said states' governments. Precisely the same occurred with respect to the 16th Amendment (income tax), declared ratified the same year. There was massive illegality in operation within our national government in the year 1913, under the direction, and for the benefit, of big money. Look for the state by state ratifications. You will not find nearly a sufficient number, as required by the Constitution. Many states who were declared to have ratified these amendments literally had taken no action whatsoever in their regards, and were merely declared by Congress to have ratified absent supporting documentation from the states in question.

Quit voting for Blunt years ago, he has been a closet Democrat from the start. Came out since he announced his retirement last year. Disgrace to his family and to the state. GW

Ernst was on TV pushing for US military action in Ukraine. Now we know shes on the take.


I just sent a message to Charles Grassley asking him why he voted YES. It will take a week or so but he has been good at getting a message back

Is Romney up for re-election?? I expected to see his name there…


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

I am shocked to see my lame duck Senator is not on that list Toomey will not run again. Could be he saw a primary fight in his future. Hopefully we can put a real conservative in there we have not had one for a while. Between Toomey and the late unlamented Arlan Spector I have had enough of these rinos.

I sent an email to Senator Grassley about his vote on March 10th. Here is part of his reply. Basically he felt trapped about voting "Yes" because the Congress has passed 3 continuing resolutions to keep country financed and this would of been the 4th. The other reason was to provide aid for the Ukrainians.

I am deeply frustrated that I and other senators who support helping heroic Ukrainians defend themselves from a barbaric onslaught were forced into a corner on the FY22 omnibus spending bill. I want to make it clear that I oppose the FY22 omnibus spending levels and the broken process congressional leaders in the House and Senate used to get it passed. However, I voted for the H.R.2471, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 when it passed the Senate on March 10, 2022, because I could not in good conscience vote in a way that would further delay urgently needed support for Ukrainians fighting for their freedom on the front lines against tyranny.

To learn more about the actions I have taken to stand against Putin’s aggression before and after his invasion of Ukraine, you can visit my website at https://www.grassley.senate.gov/grassley-leads-efforts-to-support-ukraine-punish-russia.

I'm done voting for a single incumbent. They are all [bleep] their constituents.

Well it looks like the Hits just keep Cum’n in the latest Spending Bill..
The Derby Donkey named Mitch and the rest of the Heretics stuff a provision for Mandatory Felony Investigation into people who fail or are put on hold during the National Insta Check Process..
The ATF will alert local law enforcement to pursue a Felony Inquiry..
The National Insta Check system has been plague with a High Rate of False Holds and Declines..
Better hurry and get those Transfers done before the Grace Period is over .

The Federal reserve system allows them an unlimited budget and unlimited power to abuse people like this.

States should pass bills making it illegal for local law enforcement to accept wages from the Feds.

Agreed. That's the next step in this battle.

Better luck next time, Barry. He is a yuge POS. As are the rest of the scum on that list.


If Cornyn doesn't run next time, don't be surprised to see an even worse RINO and Dim Lover, the slimy Will Hurd, slither into the Senate race. Hurd is way worse than Cornyn and that's saying something. We had our fill of him as our TX-23 representative and he was fixing to lose his job when he "decided" not to run again.

Hope you all help Hurd with his "decision" again.

BTW- Cornyn scored a big fat F on the "Liberty Score - Grade Your Politicians" link I posted last night.
