James Madison on the General Welfare Clause

The "progressive" justification for practically every statist program is the "General Welfare" clause in the US Constitution:
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States;
It goes on to list the enumerated powers to which this introductory statement refers. Here's what James Madison, widely believed to be the father of the Constitution, had to say about it:
With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
You are now equipped to argue with "progressives" on the enumerated powers. Now, go forth and rage against the kakistocracy.

The RNC Called Today... Wanted Money

I told them no. I told them that I would send my hard-earned post-tax dollars to the first major political party that would agressively recruit and support candidates who would swear to uphold the Constitution, and then do it!
  • Candidates who will remember that the Constitution is the specification for the US Government.
  • Candidates who will remember that the Constitution is a binding contract between We the People and the US Government.
  • Candidates who will remember that, if it isn't in the enumerated powers, it isn't authorized.
  • Candidates who will remember that the founders never intended the "general welfare" clause as some sort of blank check to buy votes.
  • Candidates who understand that not every "good idea" needs to be a law.
  • Candidates who believe in the Bill of Rights -- all ten of them, including the second and the tenth -- and the enduring reasons why each one is still vitally important.
  • Candidates who will remember that any regime that distorts or disregards the Constitution is untrustworthy and dangerous.
  • Candidates who can't be bought with bribes from the party bosses to send my tax dollars to their state or district to advance the party agenda.
  • Candidates who will remember that my money -- my property -- represents hours from my life that it took to earn it, and they had better spend my life sparingly and wisely, because it isn't theirs to take, and it isn't theirs to waste!
That party will get my donation for the mid-term elections. Those are my terms. Now, let's make this checklist go viral on the Internet.

Executive Order Amended to Immunize INTERPOL In America

While we were all distracted with health care (which itself is the worst assault on our liberty in decades), Barack Obama has signed an executive order giving INTERPOL, the international police, immunity from our own constitutional protections. At what point are We the People going to rise up and remove this man from office?

When I vociferously and feverishly opposed his bid for president, much to my friends' and relatives' annoyance, I thought he would be a liberal president, perhaps a bad president -- like Carter and Clinton -- although I had misgivings about how bad. Based on what I have seen so far, I think consummate evil is a better description.
For Immediate Release December 17, 2009
Executive Order -- Amending Executive Order 12425
- - - - - - -

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2©, Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.


December 16, 2009.
(Continue reading...)

Let me reiterate: This executive order gives INTERPOL the authority to violate every amendment in the Bill of Rights. Think gun control, free speech (hate speech), global warming agenda, the list goes on. The most immediate reason for this order is to allow the International Criminal Court (ICC) via INTERPOL to try the US Military for war crimes. Excuse me? Is this man really commander-in-chief?

Barack Obama cites INTERPOL acting "in America's interests". Well, whoop-de-frickin-doo! First of all, I've seen what Obama thinks is in America's interests. But ignoring that for a moment, what's to compel them to continue to do so? What guarantees do we have? What limitation of power? And where are our Constitutional rights now? Do you feel even a little bit scared? Is this man living up to his oath to uphold and protect the US Constitution?

Think I'm overreacting? Look up Obama's favorite word, audacity, to calibrate your radar.

Merry Christmas, Barack Obama! Yeah, Right.

I received the following email from President Obama, or his minions:
From: Natalie Foster,
Sent: Tuesday, December 22, 2009 12:26 PM
To: Karl Uppiano
Subject: Karl -- send this to your friends

Karl --

Forget to send your holiday cards this year? Don't worry, we've got you covered.

You can personalize our customized holiday video message for all of your friends and family. Each video will have their names in it -- and yours. You can even choose a special holiday greeting to include.

Just click here to create your own videos to send:

I sent a personalized video to my mom in Kansas -- and it made her day. Then she sent customized versions to folks at her church, and they loved it too!

Go ahead, spread the cheer.

Happy holidays,


Natalie Foster
New Media Director

P.S. If you haven't seen the version with your name in it yet, click here:

Paid for by Organizing for America, a project of the Democratic National Committee -- 430 South Capitol Street SE, Washington, D.C. 20003. This communication is not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
This was my response:
Dear President Obama,

You mean Merry Christmas, don't you? It won't be a Merry Christmas for me this year, since I am watching my liberty, and my kids' liberty be squandered by a bunch of radical "progressives" who want to render the Constitution -- the specification for the US Government, the contract between the US Government and We the People -- inoperative. In so doing, you will also enslave those you claim to want to help the most: The poor and down-trodden. Way to go.

You have spent my kids' allowance, their lunch money, their inheritance, 35 years of future paychecks, and their retirement. Thanks a heap. I hope they'll vote better than we did in the last two elections.

Karl Uppiano

P.S., I am sending this to my friends.
Out of respect for the office, I left out the epithet that normally follows expressions such as "way to go" and "thanks a heap". It is implied.

Why the Strongarm Tactics?

Why is this health care bill such high stakes? Why the strongarm tactics? Because there is so much money and power involved. The federal government has so overstepped its authority that this is make or break for dictators. If government were less intrusive, politics would be less divisive.

I hope statism fails, and I hope Barack Obama fails on this one. I said I wouldn't use that label anymore, but if Barack Obama succeeds, he is going to ruin us. Mark my words. Hear me now and believe me later.

Senate Actions: Political Malpractice

We are truly living in a kakistocracy. Rage against the kakistocracy. This is more than just "political disagreement" on issues. Can't the tea partiers across this nation file a class action lawsuit against our legislators for political malpractice?

I do hope Barack Obama fails on this health care bill. This is not the way America does things. Americans don't want this. Once lost, liberty is almost impossible to recover. Please don't let them take our liberty, and our children's liberty to make our own health care decisions.

The current health care system has problems because of too much government, not because of insufficient government. Assuming health care reform is the highest priority right now (I believe it isn't), effective reform would be the exact opposite of the plan that statist senators intend to ram down our throats despite growing majority opposition.

Don't Doubt It -- This is a Kakistocracy

The wheeling and dealing, outright bribery and political malpractice is simply shocking. This is kakistocracy on parade. Jefferson, Madison, Washington, et. al., would be shocked and saddened, but probably not surprised. They warned us about this.

Too Lazy to Move?

Attention "progressives": There is no shortage of socialist regimes out there. Just move there, if that's what you want. Why change the USA?

It's Kind of Quiet Around Here...

I have been posting over at the Bellingham Tea Party Blog, because it gets more traffic than Rage Against the Kakistocracy (if you can believe that). Oh well, BTP is technically my blog too, but I'm doing it for the organization, and other people contribute, which makes it more interesting.

I do tend to moderate my posts over there, since that website represents more than just me. This site is for my more radical or partisan rants.

Here are some of my recent posts at BTP:
I think the 10th Amendment article is the most important one of all.

Cash for Caulk and Tire Inflation

Barack Obama wants to provide government incentives for caulk and other weatherizing materials.

Mr. President, my windows don't need caulking. I'll wager that most windows don't need caulking. But if they do, caulk is really, really cheap in the amounts that would be required to seal leaks. I would hope that this program extends to insulation (there are already programs in place for that, I think). I could save energy if I were to insulate the floors in my crawlspace. Some older homes might benefit from insulation blown into walls and attic space. But caulking?

That's like proper tire inflation. If your tires aren't properly inflated, you'll waste energy, wear your tires, and compromise vehicle handling. But if your tires are properly inflated, there's nothing to do. It isn't as if the energy crisis will be averted by everyone adding 10 PSI to their tires. We're not going to stop global warming by sealing all the non-existent cracks around my windows (particularly, as I believe, if humans aren't responsible for climate change in the first place).

DIY Climate Change Analysis

Iowahawk cracks me up with his satire on a regular basis. However, he has provided us with a rare glimpse into his scientific and statistical skills with the article Fables of the Reconstruction (Or, How to Make Your Own Hockey Stick). If you want to understand how climate data are analyzed, you should definitely check it out.

Global Warming, or Climate Change?

Well, I don't care if it rains or freezes, long as I got my plastic Jesus riding on the dashboard of my car...

It don't matter if it warms or cools, long as we've got elected fools taxing us before we drive too far...

"Climate change" is the new name for this largest of all frauds ever perpetrated on the susceptible inhabitants of Earth, empowering tyrants worldwide. The climate has always been changing. Now the statists have secured fraudulent scientific justification to tax us for it.

My God, I wish I was a liberal right now. I'd be so damned happy. I could just sit and grin stupidly at my TV set, "knowing" that everything would be just fine...

It's not the science, "It's the ideology stupid."

From American Thinker -

President Obama's complete lack of concern for the fraudulent science associated with global warming is contrasted with the common sense of Sarah Palin. The gutsy Alaskan suggested that Obama ought to hold his horses on the whole climate change thing until the real verdict is in. Of course, the smartest man in the world will have none of that.

With the outrageous news of deceit, fraud and suppression of opposing evidence by top climate change "scientists," many conservatives had expected to see the story unfold a little differently (with actual reporting and investigating). Global warming, aka, climate change has been heralded as the preeminent story of our time. As such, the exposing of scientific fraud in the ultimate "science" movement would have made screaming headline news in a sane world.

Ever Wonder How We Take Our Global Temperature?

Musings from the Chiefio explains it like this:
GIStemp: Goddard Institute for Space Studies, temperature Series.

If we would study global temperature change over time, we need a temperature record over time, and over the globe. GIStemp attempts to create a temperature history with full coverage over time and over space. Unfortunately, the (GHCN – Global Historical Climate Network) data start with one thermometer in Germany: Berlin Tempel in 1701.

Over time, thermometers are added, and they slowly migrate south and to both the new, and old, worlds. Eventually, about 1900 A.D., there are sufficient thermometers on the globe to get a partial idea what is happening. But climate is subject to cyclical changes. Some, like the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, have about a 40 to 60 year full cycle length. Others, like solar cycles that run 178 years, and Bond Events – a 1500 year cycle, are a bit longer. A 100 year record is inadequate to allow for these events.
(Continue reading...)

That's right, it's estimated, interpolated, or just plain made up. Only after the data are fully cooked, is it used to drive public policy.

The Proof Behind the CRU Climategate Debacle: Because Computers Do Lie When Humans Tell Them To

If this is actual code from an actual model, actually distorting data the way the author suggests, then we have a smoking gun, and plenty of ammunition:
I’m coming to you today as a scientist and engineer with an agnostic stand on global warming.

If you don’t know anything about “Climategate” (does anyone else hate that name?) Go ahead and read up on it before you check out this post, I’ll wait.

Back? Let’s get started.

First, let’s get this out of the way: Emails prove nothing. Sure, you can look like an unethical asshole who may have committed a felony using government funded money; but all email is, is talk, and talk is cheap.

Now, here is some actual proof that the CRU was deliberately tampering with their data. Unfortunately, for readability’s sake, this code was written in Interactive Data Language (IDL) and is a pain to go through.
(Continue reading...)

Speaking as a professional software engineer, his analysis looks plausible.

Update: I strongly encourage you to read Climategate Code Analysis Part 2, especially the discussion. This is how science is supposed to work -- but hasn't in the case of AGW.

So Long, And No Thanks for the Externalities

The Rational Rejection of Security Advice by Users

This is a fascinating analysis of the true cost of computer security. Since we have well-established that I am a reactionary, anti-political correctness extremist, you have some idea where this is going.
It is often suggested that users are hopelessly lazy and unmotivated on security questions. They chose weak passwords, ignore security warnings, and are oblivious to certificates errors. We argue that users' rejection of the security advice they receive is entirely rational from an economic perspective. The advice offers to shield them from the direct costs of attacks, but burdens them with far greater indirect costs in the form of effort.

Looking at various examples of security advice we find that the advice is complex and growing, but the benefit is largely speculative or moot. For example, much of the advice concerning passwords is outdated and does little to address actual treats, and fully 100% of certificate error warnings appear to be false positives. Further, if users spent even a minute a day reading URLs to avoid phishing, the cost (in terms of user time) would be two orders of magnitude greater than all phishing losses.

Thus we find that most security advice simply offers a poor cost-benefit tradeoff to users and is rejected. Security advice is a daily burden, applied to the whole population, while an upper bound on the benefit is the harm suffered by the fraction that become victims annually. When that fraction is small, designing security advice that is beneficial is very hard. For example, it makes little sense to burden all users with a daily task to spare 0.01% of them a modest annual pain.
(Continue reading (PDF -- twelve pages)...)

This is the kind of economic analysis that congress and regulators rarely do with government programs. Instead, they look at the feel-good factor, and ignore the cost entirely. One line in particular caught my eye: "... economists have long studied how misaligned incentives often produce
undesired outcomes ...". This practically defines government programs. I know many liberals would read this document, and their heads would explode. "How can you say this? Do you know the risk you are exposing users to?" Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I do. But just try having a rational discussion about bicycle helmets or seat belts with a liberal. They feel that no risk of any kind, in any amount, is acceptable. Hence, the disclaimer at the end:
Note: this paper is not to be read as an encouragement to end-users to ignore security policies or advice. The opinions expressed are those of the author.
They cannot seem to get their heads around calculated risk assessment. Since they can't, they feel that no one else can either, and regulators must force everyone to "be safe" -- whatever that means in real terms (while simultaneously ignoring the unintended and often very undesirable consequences of their nanny statism).

Or, maybe it's because most legislators are lawyers, and everything is a "slip-and-fall" situation. The possibility of getting sued and having someone be awarded an astronomically out-of-proportion-to-the-injury settlement makes no risk acceptable these days.

It’s Got to Suck to be a Climavangelist!

Here's some great red meat for all of you AGW "Deniers", by Doug Giles:
What are the global warming grunts going to do now that the Apostles of the Holy Church of Climatology have been busted for cooking the “truth” (I believe the exact word they used was “tricking” us) so that we the sheeple would step-n-fetch to their Chicken Little crap?

Climategate -- Prof. Watson calls Morano an 'asshole' on Newsnight

This arrogant little professor keeps talking about character assasination. What he apparently fails to grasp is that what happened with Climategate wasn't character assasination, it was character suicide.

Oh, and then he calls his adversary on the interview an "asshole". With that, I think he managed an assassination and a suicide with one bullet. I think we all know which one is the rectum here.

The Best States in the USA in Defense of Liberty

From an email circulating the Internet

An update from Oklahoma:

Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values. HB 1330

Guess what -- Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB 1804. Hope we didn't send any of them to your state. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

Guess what -- Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegals to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional. SB 1102

Guess what -- Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi, Florida [Note: I'm sorry to see that my home state of WA is not mentioned here. -- ed]. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a set back for the criminals (and Obamaites). Liberals didn't like it -- But,

Guess what -- Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, my state has voted and passed a law that ALL driver's license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. We have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of our road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, Obama does not like any of this.

Guess what -- who cares -- Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

To Verify:

The Liberals Want Their "Progressive" Name Back Again

Have you noticed that “Liberals” have started calling themselves “Progressives” again? That’s because “Liberal” has become a nasty word, and people are starting to associate bad policy with liberal policy. The funny thing is, the “Progressives” started using the name “Liberal” for the same reason back in the first half of the 20th Century.

The “Progressive” movement got started in its present form sometime in the early part of the 20th Century. The “Progressives” believe that history is a linear progression of human events that will result in the eventual perfection of human beings (if we would only allow it). They reject the idea that “history repeats itself”.
... today we know that history is progressive rather then cyclical, that biblical prophesies are irrelevant, and that new thinking is required to fit new circumstances. This makes the long-established American tendency to fall back on the wisdom of the founders in times of stress all the more inappropriate. In a high tech age, there is simply no excuse for blind worship of a grouop of preindustrial philosphes. ~ Daniel Lazare, The Frozen Republic (1996)
Why are biblical prophesies irrelevant, Daniel? Is it because you misunderstand the true nature of biblical prophesies? A biblical prophesy doesn't foretell the future any more than my father telling me "If you don't study, you'll fail mathematics" did. It is a prediction that I have the liberty to avoid, if I work at it.

And why are the founders now irrelevant? Has human nature changed one iota in all of recorded history? I think not. Tyranny is as popular and as dangerous as ever. A high-tech society has nothing whatever to do with it. And just so you know, we don't blindly worship the founders, we actually understand what they were trying to accomplish, and we admire them for that. We believe that their years of study and careful design yielded a Constitutional Republic that facilitated the most prosperous and generous nation in all of human history. To the extent that it is still allowed, their system of government is still working. To the extent that it is broken, well, they predicted that. They told us to guard against it, but we failed to heed their warning.

It's true, history doesn’t repeat itself like an endless loop from Groundhog Day, but those who fail to learn from history are bound to repeat it. Time is linear (to human observers), but historical events have an uncanny way of replicating themselves in disturbing ways if you don’t take steps to prevent it. The regression of individual liberty is one process I would like to reverse.

I for one am happy to see the left abandon the “Liberal” moniker. Their statist schemes are about as illiberal as you can get. They want bigger government, higher taxes, and more regulation (except for recreational drugs, illicit sex, sexual perversion and pornography – where, evidently, less regulation is better). But where it really matters, “social justice” inhibits and usurps liberty and justice for all. Soon, true believers can again call themselves “Liberal” and mean it in the original sense of the word: The Classical Liberal.

Never Surrender!

My wife sent me this.


Written by Christopher Monckton
Tuesday, 24 November 2009

This is what they did - these climate "scientists" on whose unsupported word the world's classe politique proposes to set up an unelected global government this December in Copenhagen.

An unelected global government with vast and unprecedented powers to control all formerly free markets, to tax wealthy nations and all of their financial transactions, to regulate the economic and environmental affairs of all nations, and to confiscate and extinguish all patent and intellectual property rights.

The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the "global warming" fraud - for fraud is what we now know it to be - tampered with temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures.

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama Supporter, please do not be angry with me because I think your president is a socialist. There are too many facts supporting this. If you seek the truth you will be richer for it. Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. I did. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalist, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish. If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy. Don't rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the internet. Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there too but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies. Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth? Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox who he has waged war against. There must be a reason. He does not call them down on any specifics, just a general battle against them. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn't. Please, find the truth, it will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, or Iran; no, our biggest enemy is a cabal of politicians in Washington DC.
