These American Leftists are so predictable. Recently, the Marxists and takers of our society railed and wailed against Wall Street and all that evil money (that isn’t in their pockets). Now Van Jones, former Obama Administration czar and self-confessed communist, says he and his fellow Marxists will launch an “October Offensive” against the free market and the freedom Americans have known for over 200 years.
Can anyone remember a time when Congress had a decent approval rating? Here we are after the supposed tidal wave that hit Congress last November that would forever transform the way politicians do business in Washington. Guess what happened? Nothing really changed other than the nameplates on the doors. Out-of-control spending continues. Obamacare remains the law of the land. And budgets continue to grow.
This is one of the very few out of many news reports I’ve seen about Islamic terrorist Rezwan Ferdaus, who planned to fly explosive-laden remote controlled airplanes into the U.S. Capitol and Pentagon, that actually got around to mentioning the religion of the terrorist (the Religion of Peace, of course) and the motivation for the planned attacks (to defend Allah). Consider his background. Poverty and lack of opportunity causes terrorism? Nah, never believed that one anyway.
I like the title they gave this Solyndra video at Breitbart TV: “CRONY CAPITALISM: A CONCISE HISTORY OF OBAMA’S SOLYNDRA SCANDAL” So apt: crony capitalism. Not real capitalism. Not the free market. Crony capitalism, where it looks like capitalism to a point, but it’s really shuffling the taxpayer’s money to your friends so they can in turn shuffle some of it back your way, come election time.
With the price of having dinner with President Obama getting down to a bargain-basement price of $3, the price might be about right for me to contribute to his re-election campaign in order to gain access to give him a piece of my mind. I could still sleep at night if I only gave $3 to this Marxist who is intend on destroying my country. I have to agree with Jimmy Kimmel, though, in that it just seems wrong for dinner with the President of the United States to cost less than a Hot Pocket.
As part of a settlement of an Alliance Defense Fund lawsuit, the city of Mission voted Wednesday to exempt from its “driveway tax” churches and other entities who are exempt from property taxes under state law. The odd tax, similar to ones struck down by supreme courts in two other states, bills property owners based on the number of trips in and out of their driveways.
U.S. House Republicans are working on a bill to defund ObamaCare. Whether it makes it into law or not, it is important that House Republicans make very effort to defund, defang and bury this unconstitutional assault on the American way of life. The American people need to see who is serious about preserving our freedoms and restoring respect for the U.S. Constitution, so they will have no doubt about who to vote for in 2012.
S.D. Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today the United States Department of Justice has filed a petition with the United States Supreme Court seeking review of the lower court decisions holding the Federal Health Care Reform Act as unconstitutional. He and other State Attorneys General are responding in order to preserve and expand upon the lower courts decisions and emphasize the importance of individual and state rights.
Have you seen the latest from Gallup on the sentiment of Americans toward their government? You should. That outrage we saw boil over with the advent of the Tea Party movement? It hasn’t gone away…and it’s only getting hotter. In addition to historic dissatisfaction with government (81%), the survey found that most Americans have no confidence in their elected leaders, believe government wastes most of their hard-earned money, and that government has become so large that it is a threat to freedom.
The communist Left’s campaign to drive every hint of God from our nation’s classrooms continues. In case you missed the story from a couple of weeks ago, the latest twist in the case of the assault on one teacher’s freedom of speech has been a blow dealt by the notoriously leftist 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled that school district authorities did not violate the teacher’s right to freedom of speech when they ordered him to remove patriotic banners from his classroom that included the name of God.
The Obama Administration has one shining quality — an ability to dumbfound and amaze through some of the most ill-conceived proposals in human history. The latest gem out of the White House is President Obama’s proposal to allow an unemployed person to drag an employer who doesn’t hire him or her into federal court and try to prove they weren’t hired because they were unemployed.
President Barack Obama has a lot of gall, doesn’t he? There is definitely no shortage of hubris in this administration. After having run up trillions of dollars in new debt on unconstitutional and wasteful “porkulus” spending that was supposed to stimulate the American economy (and failed miserably, as we knew it would)…and refused to deal with America’s gargantuan spending and debt problem, Obama lectures Europeans about their debt problems.
I’ve talked to you before about the real racists in American politics are. In case you didn’t know, it isn’t the Republicans. The real racists in American politics aren’t found in the Tea Party. Listen to Rev. Wayne Perryman tell you where racism has lived for more than 150 years, and where the bulwark of freedom and opportunity has lived and lives today.
I’ve talked about Pulpit Freedom Sunday many times before. It’s been going on since 2007, as churches and pastors have begun to challenge the unconstitutional tax code provision Senator Lyndon Johnson slipped into the law in 1954 to silence his political enemies. Pulpit Freedom Sunday is October 2 this year. If you’re a pastor, will you consider stepping forward for freedom, for your society, for your country…for your Lord?
The plight of the elderly often goes overlooked. This problem is exacerbated by a culture that has changed radically over the past several decades, becoming more and more obsessed with youth, more and more self-centered, more and more disconnected from intergenerational family bonds and obligations. It will be difficult to muster momentum on the problem of elder abuse in a cultural milieu that embraces a utilitarian spirit and a sliding scale of human dignity.
A couple of stories from last week serve to further illustrate who some of the real bullies in America are. The first incident was the outrageous behavior of a German class teacher inFort Worth,Texas, who lost his mind when a student dared to tell his buddy that homosexuality is wrong, and the second case was of the lunatic homosexual who launched a vicious verbal attack against Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, in a West Hollywood night club.
Please take the time to watch this 10 minute video with James Delingpole regarding the hoax of anthropogenic global warming and ClimateGate. Delingpole has done a great deal to expose this Marxist hoax which is nothing but a vehicle to take away our property and our freedom. Since the deception, junk science and “fudged” information concerning this hoax were broadly exposed to the light of day in ClimateGate, belief in the silly idea of man-made global warming has dropped to only about 1/3 of the population.
As Barack Obama’s radical appointees on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continue their jihad against American jobs and the free market economy, many have wondered: Based on what warped ideological mooring does the leader of the free world summon the “audacity” to tell private companies where they can (or in Boeing’s case, “can’t”) locate new jobs? That’s easy — it’s “The Chicago Way.”
Timothy Goeglein spent nearly eight years in the White House as President George W. Bush’s key point of contact to American conservatives and the faith-based world and was frequently profiled in the national news media. But when a plagiarism scandal prompted his resignation, Goeglein chose not to dodge it but confront it, and was shown remarkable grace by the president. In fact, Bush showed more concern for Goeglein and his family than any personal political standing.
For some people to be denied economic opportunity because of a legal behavior that they might engage in while off the clock is absolutely discriminatory when we see that other behaviors contribute equally or even moreso to the high costs of health care and lost productivity. Some smart lawyers are going to file a huge class-action lawsuit against these employers and they’ll win.
