Today brought good news and bad news on the 2012 presidential front. Many had hoped Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) would run, but today he made it clear that he definitely will not. However, conservative stalwart Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) moved a little closer today to saying outright that she will run for president. With conservative Herman Cain already in the race, another conservative in the race could really make things interesting.
While a host of unanswered (and perhaps unanswerable) questions remain about forcing acceptance of this corrosive behavior on the military, the U.S. military is moving forward as required by law with indoctrinating our troops to accept homosexual behavior in the ranks as moral and legitimate. As their training material reveals, the leadership naively believes diametrically opposed values can coexist harmoniously in the military.

Irony is defined as “the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning.” The term doublespeak means “evasive, ambiguous language that is intended to deceive or confuse.” There is perhaps no greater example of ironic doublespeak than inclusion of the phrase “civil liberties” within the inapt designation: “American Civil Liberties Union.” For ACLU founder Roger Baldwin made it clear: Communism is the goal.

“If we continue down on the path on which the fiscal authorities put us, we will become insolvent, the question is when,” said Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher after a recent speech at the University of Frankfurt. That is an alarming proclamation coming from a prominent central bank official. Not only because of the dire warning, but because Mr. Fisher is in a position to know of what he speaks.
It is little wonder that a 2006 survey by the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum found that fewer than one percent of adults who responded to a national poll could identify the five rights protected by the First Amendment–freedom of religion, speech, the press, assembly and the right to petition the government. On the other hand, more than half (52%) of the respondents could name at least two of the characters in the animated Simpson television family, and 20% could name all five.
