“Karen in the Northeast” called the Rush Limbaugh show today and said she is a teacher in the same school her son attends. Her son’s teacher gave students an assignment to write an essay on how to help President Barack Obama advance his agenda. If I were that student, rather than openly contest the contention that a student should help President Obama turn the United States into a third-rate socialist nation as he clearly intends, I would outline in clear detail the best avenue by which Obama might actually achieve this.
Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin went on record over the weekend defending her food-for-votes scheme. In a KTIV interview on Friday, Herseth Sandlin calls her actions legal and accuses the Republican Party of trying to suppress Democratic votes, and even suggests that she conducted the feeds so voters wouldn’t have to drive 70 miles one way to vote early. Once again, she is wrong on two fronts.
Bill Whittle’s Firewall continues to examine the mysterious Tea Party philosophy–you know, the one that has been in plain sight for nearly two years, yet liberals claim they still cannot discern? This time, we examine the Tea Party opposition to elitism. That’s the problem liberals in Washington D.C. have, and that liberals across our country have to varying degrees.
A friend sent me this reminder, a blast from the past during Bruce Whalen’s 2006 campaign against Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D-SD). In this ad, we are reminded, in Herseth Sandlin’s own words, how embarrassed she is to be from a conservative state like South Dakota. We also hear how proud she is to be endorsed by pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, NARAL and Emily’s List.
It’s just a couple of days until the Family Heritage Alliance “Stand” event on Tuesday October 19. Ken Blackwell will be the keynote speaker. Blackwell is the former Treasurer and Secretary of State from Ohio. He also came very close to winning out as chairman of the RNC last year, narrowly losing to Michael Steele.
If the American people are to roll back socialist advances, the victories in the House and Senate must be complete. The surrender that was signed in August of 1945 would not have been signed for months or years later unless the twin horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki hadn’t convinced even the Japanese Army who was still winning their war in China that all was lost. Likewise, we who desire a return to limited government must take total control of Congress.
The General Election Day, Nov. 2, is less than three weeks away. Voting that day, or ahead of that date if you want to, is one of the traits of being a good citizen. However, that isn’t the only sign. Knowing about our nation’s history and about our federal government are a couple more indications of being a good citizen.
S.3081, the Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, is proposed by Senator John McCain and co-sponsored by eight others, including his good friend, John Thune. Under this law as currently written, any U. S. citizen who is a war protester, publicly exhibits anti-government sentiments, is a Tea Party activist, or a political opponent of a given Administration could fall (or be made to fall) under one or more of its ill-defined and ambiguous conditions.
