From The Washington Times:
“In a case freighted with major constitutional implications, a federal appeals court on Friday overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess.”
The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments he made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and hence the five-person board did not have a quorum to operate.
But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance, with the judges arguing that the president’s recess appointment powers don’t apply to “intra-session” appointments — those made when Congress has left town for a few days or weeks. They said Mr. Obama erred when he said he could claim the power to determine when he could make appointments.
“Allowing the president to define the scope of his own appointments power would eviscerate the Constitution’s separation of powers,” the judges said in their opinion.

Thank you to all the Veteran’s and their families. Words are never enough to express our gratitude.
Hours till the polls open.
The media focuses on the destruction from Sandy on the east coast and ignores the murder of American citizens by terrorists in Benghazi. We have within our grasp the ability to throw off the chains of soft tyranny which eludes the media. The largest threat to our nation, to our sovereignty is the financial cliff we teeter on. Escalating debt and trillion dollar plus deficits are unacceptable. Putting an end to tyranny will not magically happen overnight, it is a journey to realign the country back to founding principles which applauds and encourages liberty.
Do not obsess over the polls; it is an honor to vote and an obligation we share as Americans. It is your duty as an American to vote for liberty.
As Americans we believe in the truths which our founders carefully laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
We must turn out in droves tomorrow, regardless if the wait is hours to cast our ballot or the weather is bad. We must stand for liberty.
Talk to family and friends with passion, inspire them to vote for liberty. Vote for love of country and founding principles!
Throughout the country reports have surfaced of touch screen voting machines not registering the correct choice of the voter. Locally we do not use the touch screen type of machines; we use push button type of machines.
Please before pressing the final cast your ballot button, check and make sure that ballot reflects the choices you have made.

We distributed almost seven hundred postcards, throughout the state of Indiana and Ohio to swing voters. While the individual messages were unique to each writer, all contained the core message of standing for liberty, American values and encouraging them to vote for these principles on November 6th.
We even had a Patriot from Kentucky write requesting some names, after she learned about the campaign from a co-worker.
You are fighting to save the Republic!
Good Job Patriots!
Does anyone doubt that this election is perhaps the most important election since the creation of our nation? We sit at a crossroads of what the future of the country will be; ever increasing government control which leads to a soft tyranny or the embracing of principles encapsulated through the founding documents of the nation?
NIPats will not tell you how to vote, we believe you are smart enough to know what is best for America and what are the core values of the nation.
In these last 6 days there are many things you can do as an individual to help direct the nation toward liberty…
- Contact a local campaign, they always need additional help. Maybe to:
- Phone bank
- Handing out plugger cards on November 6th at polling places. Typically the candidate will have a quick 3 point policy solution for potential voters to hear before they cast their ballot. This may be something like, “please vote for XXX, she believes in fiscal responsibility, limited government and the Constitution.”
- As the election nears candidates are looking for individuals to place campaign signs in places such as in front of polling locations or in high traffic intersections leading up to election day.
Campaigns are not the only area were you can help.

A group of survivors and family from the Fort Hood terrorist attack by Major Hasan are calling on Americans to contact their elected officials and request that the administration correctly classify Fort Hood as a terrorist attack instead of the misclassification of workplace violence.
Because the Obama Administration refuses to classify the Fort Hood shooting as a “terrorist act, ” the victims and heroes are unable to collect the additional benefits (including purple hearts) that they would had it not been classified “workplace violence.”
Watch this video to hear their story and request.
