Political musings for the week ending Mar. 24, 2012 on a variety of topics including: Tea Party, election, Republican, GOP, Obama, economy, taxes, energy, media bias, freedom, debt, and more.
Rufus King, born MARCH 24, 1755, was one of the youngest signers of the U.S. Constitution, only 32 years old. A Harvard graduate, Rufus King was an aide to General Sullivan during the Revolutionary War. Rufus King later served as U.S. Minister to England and a U.S. Senator from New York. He said, “I hold that all laws or compacts imposing any such condition as slavery upon any human being are absolutely void because they are contrary to the law of nature, which is the law of God.”
Some views on the news from around the web: views on the economy from Canada Free Press; views on the upcoming election from American Thinker; election lessons from National Review Online; economic news from Town Hall and the New York Post; views on ObamaCare from National Review Online; and more.
I woke up to hearing President Barack Obama saying that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon, the young man who was killed in Florida by a Neighborhood Watchman. You know what? We should want to see the same thorough investigation regardless of the skin color of the victim, or who he might have looked like.
I just love those rare moments when liberals tell the truth, even if it’s not the whole truth. Just a little bit of light breaking through and shining on their dark agenda is like stumbling across a rare gem or a pot of gold. Like when Frances Fox Piven of the famed anti-American “Cloward-Piven Strategy” admitted that communists, socialists and Democrats are all peas in the same pod, and that the Occupy movement is thoroughly Leftist.
As the Supreme Court starts its three-day marathon Monday to hear arguments on the constitutionality of the health care law known as “Obamacare,” let’s be clear about the justices’ challenge, and ours. It’s about applying, in good faith, the principles that define this country and assuring that our government operates in a fashion consistent with those principles. This country is about freedom. When we lose it, we lose our country. This is what the Supreme Court should be thinking about when it hears the arguments on Obamacare.
It appears political radio commentator and columnist Gina Miller has been caught up in the “Rush net,” the campaign being waged by Leftists to silence their political enemies from the airwaves. It does not matter that the Left has mouthpieces in ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek, Time, US News & World Reports and more–they must silence ALL dissenting voices that expose their corrosive agenda.
The Declaration of Independence accused the King of giving his assent to acts of “pretended legislation.” On MARCH 23, 1775, Patrick Henry spoke to the 2nd Virginia Convention, which was meeting in Richmond’s St. John’s Church due to British hostilities, asking, “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?”
When you’re on the Left (as most “mainstream” media “journalists” are), what you say really doesn’t have to have any connection whatsoever to reality, does it? Facts, logic, reason, relevance? All optional. In fact, it’s far easier when you don’t even bother to check for any of these before opening your mouth. Such was the case on MSNBC when Karen Finney threw baseless slurs at Rush Limbaugh in a flimsy attempt to link him with the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
