Marcus Brown Supported:
HOUSE BILL 294 / SENATE BILL 281: Firearm Safety Act of 2013 in MD

  1. Redefintion of “Assault Weapons including more pistols, long guns and copycat weapons.
  2. Persons in possession of these weapons were required to register them to lawfully maintain possession.
  3. A new licensing scheme for handguns. A “handgun qualification license” authorizes a person topurchase, rent, or receive a handgun.
    • Requires a signed statement from the applicant, under penalty of perjury, that the applicant is not prohibited under federal or State law to possess a handgun.
    • Requires proof of completion of an approved firearms safety training course.
  4. Reduces magazine size manufacture, sale, purchase, receipt, or transfer in the State from 20 to 10 rounds of ammunition for a firearm.
  5. Creates a class of restricted firearm ammunition.
  6. Requires the Secretary of State Police to disapprove an application for a State-regulated firearms dealer’s license if a person not qualified for a license or whose license has been revoked or suspended will participate in the management or operation of the business or holds an interest in the business.
  7. Requires that a licensed dealer keep records of all receipts, sales, and other dispositions of firearms affected in connection with the dealer’s business.
    • The records must include the name and address of each person from whom the dealer acquires a firearm and to whom the dealer sells or disposes of a firearm and other additional information.
  8. There are more disqualifications under this law and many more innocuous terms.

This type of legislation  (Firearm Safety Act of 2013 in MD) cannot be reconciled with our State Constitution:

The right of the citizens to bear arms in defence of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.

More Indicators That Marcus Brown is Unfit For Office:

  • In addition to this, he had his buddies at the state level in MD lobby for exemptions to meet the requirements for a full pension from a job in which he served less than 15 years of service.
  • He and his wife simultaneously took homestead tax exemptions in MD and PA while he rung up mileage on his state issued vehicle commuting back and forth.
  • He wears the Pennsylvania State Police uniform even though he never graduated from the training schools.

Warrantless Search & Seizure:

On March 11, 2014, he was involved in a roadblock of 12 lanes of traffic on I-270 in which thousands of commuters were held against their will, forced to stay in their vehicles, forced to pop their trunks in search of fugitive bank robbers. Police of different ranks from various communities, fully armed and barking orders out to law abiding citizens, none of which were served with warrant and no probable cause existed to stop and detain a single car.

Is this how you want your family and neighbors treated? One who acts as if he is above the law should not be in a position of enforcing the law.

Vote no! Thumbs Down on Marcus Brown.

Congratulations: The nomination has been withdrawn: http://www.post-gazette.com/news/state/2015/06/08/Wolf-to-withdraw-nomination-of-acting-state-police-commissioner-Marcus-Brown-pennsylvania/stories/201506080153

For now he is still acting Commissioner. The Senate may yet vote on the nomination. This is still a little fuzzy, but it is looking good. I suggest we hit the Senate with more calls, letters and petitions.

It seems official now:

The Pennsylvania Senate voted 26 to 22 against Brown’s confirmation. Republican Senators have led the charge against Brown’s confirmation — highlighting several decisions, views and actions that they consider questionable.
 
Congratulations

presents an informal debate:
 
“A Constitutional Convention or a Convention of the States: 
 Securing or Subverting Freedom?”
 
with
JOHN McMANUS, President of the John Birch Society
and
STEVE DAVIES, Pennsylvania State Director, Convention of States
 
on
 Thursday, January 8, 2015, 7-9 pm
at
Liberty Training Center
 2nd floor of CFC Logistics Bldg, 4000 AM Dr., Quakertown, PA ++;
 
 We are honored to host…

  • Mr. Steve Davies, Pennsylvania State Director of Convention of States organization since July 2014; Director, Business Development for CB&I, Inc., a large, international engineering and construction firm
All patriots who understand our American Constitution deplore the departure of the federal government from its constitutional limits resulting in fiscal disaster and diminishing freedom; all agree that We the People must act to preserve our constitutional system, our freedom, and our economy.  But how do we rein in an out-of-control federal government? 
Some have proposed a Constitutional Convention.  Some patriots believe that the only solution is to call a Convention of States and pass “Liberty Amendments” to the Constitution that would force the federal government to comply with constitutional and fiscal guidelines. Some patriots believe that such a Convention would be not only ineffective, but dangerous. 
Join us to hear both sides and decide what you can do to preserve our Constitution and our freedom.
 
Open Q&A following power point presentations by both speakers
JBS books and literature available for purchase
Meeting is free but donations appreciated

Paul Ryan: Budget Hawk? No. Internationalist? Yes.

leave a comment »


I found ten votes in the 112th Congress that illustrates that Paul Ryan is far from the “Budget Hawk” the corporate media would have you think he is.  His votes illustrate support for a party agenda that is not American and is not popular among his constituents. He votes to strengthen international institutions while attacking our Bill of Rights, blurring the separation of powers defined in the Constitution and hindering our economy.

Furthermore, these votes lead me to believe he is a Neo-Conservative International Interventionist reminiscent of the Bush regime:

 
Hon. Paul Ryan
WI 1st District
My Grade
1 Amendment to HR 1: Restrict United Nations Funding Internationalism
Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) offered an amendment to HR 1 (an appropriations bill) that would have prohibited any funding in the bill from being used to pay dues to the United Nations. The House rejected Broun’s amendment and so did Rep Paul Ryan. X
2 Patriot Act Extension (S 990) Attacks Bill of Rights
A four year extension of three separate provisions of the Patriot Act that were set to expire: The “Roving Wiretap” is a provision that allows your federal government to snoop on any number to phone and internet lines without specifying what lines will be tapped and what they expect to find. The “Financial Records” provision allows asset seizure during investigations. The “Lone Wolf” provision allows spying on non-citizens without a warrant. These provisions violate the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which requires that no warrants be issued “but upon probable cause” and that warrants must contain language “particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” Ryan approved these extensions. In essence, the Patriot Act’s provisions undermine the 4th Amendment by allowing Federal Law Enforcement to go on reckless “Fishing Expeditions”. X
3 HCR 51 “The Libya Troop Withdrawal” Separation of Powers
According to the Constitution, Congress holds the power to declare war. This power was watered-down with “The War Powers Act” many congresses ago. According to the War Powers Act, the President cannot engage the Armed Forces for more than 60 days without Congressional Approval. HCR 51 “The Libya Troop Withdrawal” sought to force our President to either seek approval or end the troop deployment in Syria. The Obama Administration consulted with the UN, the Arab League, and the African Union while it snubbed our Congress. The measure was rejected by congress and Hon. Paul Ryan. The war continues. X
4 Amendment to the Defense Appropriations Bill Internationalism
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH.) offered an amendment to the defense appropriations bill that would have prohibited any funding in the bill from being used to wage war in Libya without a Congressional declaration of War. The House rejected the measure on July 8, 2011 and Paul Ryan voted in opposition. X
5 S. 365: The Debt Deal Attacks The Economy
Mr. Ryan approved the Debt Deal. This legislation (S. 365) provided for an immediate $400 billion increase in the national debt limit, while allowing the President to raise the ceiling an additional $500 billion unless Congress passed a resolution of disapproval. In his favor, he did follow this vote with a subsequent disapproval when the President attempted to grab more of your dollars. It is important to mention that this deal involved future cuts over 10 years but there is no constitutional process which could prevent future congresses from discarding those proposals. It was a typical face-saving, “toss-it-over-the-fence” measure. It guaranteed more spending at a time when the pressure to cut spending had never been more intense. X
6 H.R. 3080: South Korea Trade Agreement Internationalism
Apparently Paul Ryan doesn’t think NAFTA has done enough damage to our economy. He jumped all over the “South Korea Trade Agreement”. Another in a series of “free-trade agreements” intended to transfer the power to regulate trade (and eventually other powers too) to super-national arrangements. NAFTA is a prime example of such an arrangement. The House passed H.R. 3080. Mr. Ryan approved. X
7 H.R. 2055: Omnibus Appropriations package Attacks The Economy
Rep Ryan approved the Omnibus Appropriations package (H.R. 2055), which provided $915 billion in spending. Passage of this mammoth appropriations bill in light of the ongoing trillion-dollar annual deficits is fiscally irresponsible. How will Congress cut spending if they do not dissect these funding measures and handle them separately? X
8 H.R. 3521: Line-item Veto Separation of Powers
Mr. Ryan had no problem with approving a Line-item Veto (H.R. 3521) which would allow the President to rescind all or part of any dollar amount of funding for discretionary spending items in enacted appropriations bills. This bill dramatically and unilaterally enhances the power of the executive branch. Article I, Section 1 and Article I, Section 7, Clauses 2 and 3, of the U.S. Constitution vest Congress with all legislative powers. This bill attempts to shift legislative power away from Congress and to the President. It violates the constitutionally defined separation of powers. The Supreme Court already found a similar proposal unconstitutional during the Clinton Administration. Mr. Ryan should know that altering the Constitution requires an amendment process. A simple legislative act is insufficient. X
9 H.R. 3523: Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) Attacks Bill of Rights
Mr. Ryan approved the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). This bill (H.R. 3523) protects businesses from lawsuits regarding the sharing of their customers’ private information with the government. This is obviously an attempt to circumvent the 4th Amendments protection to be secure in your persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. After all, if a warrant were issued upon probable cause and supported under oath, these businesses would be protected from lawsuits based upon the fact that the data was subpoenaed by the court. This bill seeks to circumvent the court process and the protection clause is an attempt to remove an obstacle to participation by private business. X
10 H.R. 4310: The National Defense Authorization Act Attacks Bill of Rights
The National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4310) is so sweeping that American citizens accused of being terrorists can be detained by the U.S. military and held indefinitely without habeas corpus and without even being tried and found guilty in a court of law. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) offered an amendment to strike this language from the bill, but the House rejected Smith’s amendment and so did Rep Paul Ryan. X

Hon Mike Fitzpatrick: Whose Interests Do You Serve?

leave a comment »


I found a dozen reasons to question the loyalty of Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick to the U.S. Constitution and the constituents he is obliged to serve. Is our representative ignorant of the US Constitution? What part of “Congress shall make no law…” does this man not understand? Perhaps he thinks we do not understand and would prefer to serve other, more lucrative interests? Perhaps he is unwilling to combat the existing compromised leadership of his party? Whatever the case may be, this is his second time in Washington and it appears he has learned nothing from his first miserable term.  Here is my Report:

 
Hon. Mike Fitzpatrick
PA 8th District
  My Grade
         
1 HCR 51 “The Libya Troop Withdrawal”   Separation of Powers
According to the Constitution, Congress holds the power to declare war. This power was watered-down with “The War Powers Act” many congresses ago. According to the War Powers Act, the President cannot engage the Armed Forces for more than 60 days without Congressional Approval. HCR 51 “The Libya Troop Withdrawal” sought to force our President to either seek approval or end the troop deployment in Syria. The Obama Administration consulted with the UN, the Arab League, and the African Union while it snubbed our Congress. The measure was rejected by congress and Hon. Mike Fitzpatrick. The war continues.   X
         
2 Amendment to HR 1: Restrict United Nations Funding   Internationalism
Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) offered an amendment to HR 1 (an appropriations bill) that would have prohibited any funding in the bill from being used to pay dues to the United Nations. The House rejected Broun’s amendment and so did Rep Mike Fitzpatrick.   X
         
3 S. 365: The Debt Deal   Attacks The Economy

This legislation (S. 365) provided for an immediate $400 billion increase in the national debt limit, while allowing the President to raise the ceiling an additional $500 billion unless Congress passed a resolution of disapproval.

It is important to mention that this deal involved future cuts over 10 years but there is no constitutional process which could prevent future congresses from discarding those proposals. It was a typical face-saving, “toss-it-over-the-fence” measure. It guaranteed more spending at a time when the pressure to cut spending had never been more intense.   X
         
4 H.R. 2587: The Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act   Attacks The Economy
Representative Tim Scott (R-S.C.) introduced H.R. 2587, the Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act, “To prohibit the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment under any circumstance.” The House passed H.R. 2587. Mike Fitzpatrick disapproved this measure. Does he not understand that the federal government has no constitutional authority to order a company to reinstate production or make certain investments at a given location, or to block a company’s decision to relocate production? Perhaps Mike has friends in organized labor?   X
         
5 H.R. 3080: South Korea Trade Agreement   Internationalism
Apparently Mike Fitzpatrick doesn’t think NAFTA has done enough damage to our economy. He jumped all over the “South Korea Trade Agreement”. Another in a series of “free-trade agreements” intended to transfer the power to regulate trade (and eventually other powers too) to super-national arrangements. NAFTA is a prime example of such an arrangement. The House passed H.R. 3080. Mr. Fitzpatrick approved.   X
         
6 H.R. 2112: “minibus” bill   Attacks The Economy
Mike Fitzpatrick also voted for the so-called “minibus” bill (H.R. 2112) which appropriated funds to be spent on housing programs, food programs and farm subsidies. The Agricultural piece of this bill alone cost approx. 150 billion dollars. 99 billion of which was earmarked for food and nutrition programs.   X
         
7 H.R. 2055: Omnibus Appropriations package   Attacks The Economy
Rep Fitzpatrick approved the Omnibus Appropriations package (H.R. 2055), which provided $915 billion in spending. Passage of this mammoth appropriations bill in light of the ongoing trillion-dollar annual deficits is fiscally irresponsible. How will Congress cut spending if they do not dissect these funding measures and handle them separately?   X
         
8 H.R. 3521: Line-item Veto   Separation of Powers
Mr. Fitzpatrick had no problem with approving a Line-item Veto (H.R. 3521) which would allow the President to rescind all or part of any dollar amount of funding for discretionary spending items in enacted appropriations bills. This bill dramatically and unilaterally enhances the power of the executive branch. Article I, Section 1 and Article I, Section 7, Clauses 2 and 3, of the U.S. Constitution vest Congress with all legislative powers.

The Supreme Court already found a similar proposal unconstitutional during the Clinton Administration. Mr. Fitzpatrick should know that altering the Constitution requires an amendment process. A simple legislative act is insufficient.   X
         
9 H.R. 3523: Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA)   Attacks Bill of Rights
Mr. Fitzpatrick approved the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA). This bill (H.R. 3523) protects businesses from lawsuits regarding the sharing of their customers’ private information with the government. This is obviously an attempt to circumvent the 4th Amendments protection to be secure in your persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. After all, if a warrant were issued upon probable cause and supported under oath, these businesses would be protected from lawsuits based upon the fact that the data was subpoenaed by the court. This bill seeks to circumvent the court process and the protection clause is an attempt to remove an obstacle to participation by private business.   X
         
10 H.R. 2072: U.S. Export-Import Bank Re-Authorization   Attacks The Economy
Mr. Fitzpatrick reauthorized the U.S. Export-Import Bank (H.R. 2072) for two years and increased the agency’s lending cap from $100 billion to $140 billion. The bank issues loans and loan guarantees to foreign governments or companies for the purchase of U.S. products. This grants authority to risk taxpayers’ money to provide loans and terms that the private sector considers too risky to provide. This is corporate welfare and the taxpayers will get stuck holding the bag if the Export-Import bank defaults.   X
         
11 Amendment to H.R. 5326: Restrict Funding For “The National Ocean Policy”   Attacks The Economy
Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas) offered an amendment to an appropriations bill (H.R. 5326) that would bar the use of funds in the bill to implement an executive order signed by President Obama in July 2010 calling for a national ocean policy. Rep. Flores is on record as stating: “The National Ocean Policy was formed without congressional authority and would be run by unaccountable and unelected Washington bureaucrats. These proposed policy guidelines and processes have the potential to change the permitting criteria and requirements for a large number of economic sectors.” Moreover, Obama’s National Ocean Policy explicitly calls for “pursuing the United States’ accession to the Law of the Sea Convention,” also known as the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). The House adopted Flores’ amendment over Mr. Fitzpatrick’s rejection.   X
         
12 H.R. 4310: The National Defense Authorization Act   Attacks Bill of Rights
The National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 4310) is so sweeping that American citizens accused of being terrorists can be detained by the U.S. military and held indefinitely without habeas corpus and without even being tried and found guilty in a court of law. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) offered an amendment to strike this language from the bill, but the House rejected Smith’s amendment and so did Rep Mike Fitzpatrick.   X
