The still-unfolding story of America’s Constitution is a history of heroes and villains—the flawed visionaries who inspired and crafted liberty’s safeguards, and the shortsighted opportunists who defied them. Those stories are known by few today. In Our Lost Constitution, Senator Mike Lee tells the dramatic, little-known stories behind six of the Constitution’s most indispensible provisions. He shows their rise. He shows their fall. And he makes vividly clear how nearly every abuse of federal power today is rooted in neglect of this Lost Constitution. For example: • The Origination Clause says that all bills to raise taxes must originate in the House of Representatives, but contempt for the clause ensured the passage of Obamacare. • The Fourth Amendment protects us against unreasonable searches and seizures, but the NSA now collects our private data without a warrant. • The Legislative Powers Clause means that only Congress can pass laws, but unelected agencies now produce ninety-nine out of every one hundred pages of legal rules imposed on the American people. Lee’s cast of characters includes a former Ku Klux Klansman, who hijacked the Establishment Clause to strangle Catholic schools; the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who called the Second Amendment a fraud; and the revered president who began his first of four terms by threating to shatter the balance of power between Congress and the president, and who began his second term by vowing to do the same to the Supreme Court. Fortunately, the Constitution has always had its defenders. Senator Lee tells the story of how Andrew Jackson, noted for his courage in duels and politics, stood firm against the unconstitutional expansion of federal powers. He brings to life Ben Franklin’s genius for compromise at a deeply divided constitutional convention. And he tells how in 2008, a couple of unlikely challengers persuaded the Supreme Court to rediscover the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms. Sections of the Constitution may have been forgotten, but it’s not too late to bring them back—if only we remember why we once demanded them and how we later lost them. Drawing on his experience working in all three branches of government, Senator Lee makes a bold case for resurrecting the Lost Constitution to restore and defend our fundamental liberties.

Bernie Sanders zeigt, dass eine wahre gesellschaftliche Erneuerung nur von links geschehen kann. Seine Ideen eines modernen demokratischen Sozialismus sind wichtiger als je zuvor – für die USA und für die ganze Welt. In der führenden Nation des Westens spielen die Belange der Mittelschicht und der Geringverdiener, aber auch die des Umweltschutzes und der Minder heiten eine empörend geringe Rolle. Doch der Sozialist Bernie Sanders kämpft weiter für eine politische Revolution: für eine Ökonomie, die nicht nur Jobs schafft, sondern auch für gerechte Löhne sorgt; für ein Gesundheitswesen, das allen zugute kommt; für den nachhaltigen Schutz unserer Umwelt — und gegen jede Form von Rassismus. Nur so wird es gelingen, den USA und der ganzen Welt eine bessere Zukunft zu schaffen. Sanders’ Buch ist die linkspolitische Agenda für alle, die mit dem Primat der Profitgier und der Willkür des Establishments nicht einverstanden sind und nach neuen Wegen jenseits des Raubtierkapitalismus suchen.

Diese Arbeit geht empirisch der Frage nach, ob, und wenn ja, welche Unterschiede im Sprachverhalten, aber auch in der Auspragung sozialer Merkmale von Anwalten, Arzten, Handwerkern und Ingenieuren existieren. Diese im Rahmen einer grossangelegten Umfrage (ca. 1.900 Probanden) gewonnenen Erkenntnisse weisen darauf hin, dass die berufliche Tatigkeit eines Menschen einen wesentlichen Einfluss nicht nur auf dessen soziale, sondern auch auf seine sprachliche Identitat erlangt. Da diese Arbeit im Marketingumfeld eines Automobilkonzerns entstanden ist, zeigt sie auch, wie auf Fragen aus der unternehmerischen Praxis nach einem zielgruppengerechten Formulieren entsprechende Antworten in der geisteswissenschaftlichen Disziplin Linguistik gegeben werden konnen."

...the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in His wings... Malachi 4:2 (NKJV) The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is in trouble in the day and time in which we live. Church attendance, baptisms, and genuine discipleship are on the decline. True spiritual ministry is seldom ever manifested among the hurting people of God. Our church members for the most part are spiritually unhealthy and weak. The communities that surround our churches remain virtually untouched and unchanged. What has happened to the glory of the Lord that was once upon the Church of Jesus Christ? Where is the anointing power of the Holy Spirit that transforms lives and openly manifests the ministry of Jesus Christ to the Church and the world alike? Church overseer and author Mike Lee believes that there are sound biblical answers to these haunting questions. Rev. Lee truly sensed the good hand of God upon his life when the Spirit of the Lord quickened him to see and embrace the truths he shares passionately in this book. Contained in these pages is a message of hope and restoration. The author perceives this as the time when the Lord will bring sincere repentance and radical reform to His Church. We are fast approaching the time of His favor, he writes, when God once again will bring to His children a supernatural "release from captivity." Jesus Christ is about to be be exalted in the eyes of men as the only "Lord and Head" over the Church. God is about to turn the mourning of His people into triumphant celebration! We must sincerely humble ourselves to hear and obey His voice as He speaks to us, while it is still called, "today."

Why John Roberts Was Wrong About Healthcare

An original ebook from the current US senator to Utah, explaining why Chief Justice Roberts was wrong to disregard the Constitution in making his historic and controversial healthcare decision. uring Chief Justice Roberts’s first seven terms on the Supreme Court of the United States, he distinguished himself as a fair-minded jurist and a true constitutional scholar—a man seemingly committed to the rule of law and to core constitutional principles. That hard-earned distinction was turned on its head when, on June 28, 2012, the Chief Justice—writing for a five-to-four majority in National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebilius—essentially re-wrote key provisions of Obamacare in order to uphold the law, and allow it to be approved, in the face of a justified constitutional challenge. Now United States Senator Mike Lee presents a conservative critique of this controversial ruling, and explains why John Roberts in particular was wrong to vote to preserve the act. In an attempt to be perceived as fair in the mainstream media, Roberts allowed himself to be swayed by outside influences -- influences to which a Supreme Court justice is supposed to be absolutely immune. Not only that, Senator Lee explains, Roberts conceded that much of the Obamacare act was unconstitutional; yet he instructed states simply to ignore those parts, instead of recognizing that those parts made the entire act invalid. A smart, fair and evenhanded argument, Why John Roberts Was Wrong provides a definitive, concise argument against Obamacare.
