If half a million people march for life on Washington, D.C., and the media pretend not to hear them, did they still make a statement in defense of the unborn? The corporate media flacks and their Democratic overlords would likely respond: “Did you hear about the college football player and his fake girlfriend?”
Obama struggles with the oath. McCarthy makes the streets safe for madmen. And: Do crocodiles cry Hillary tears? All this, plus: Can we get back our deposit on the Death Star? Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
Barack Obama literally swore to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” on an actual stack of Bibles. The arrogance to do so with a straight face, despite it being an affront to Nation, office and Almighty God, sets the bar at a whole new level.

It also undersells the importance of the central issue: making private firearm ownership a bone of contention instead of the symbol of American unity it should be.
Over the weekend, I had a chance to discuss with an acquaintance firearms and the current controversy surrounding them. I realized that he also falls into the “doesn’t really know much about firearms” category; he joins nearly every liberal on the planet in that ignorance.
Ol’ Pluggsy has a plan; (and so does the Accomplice General). Hide the ambassadors! And I’m sure you’ll find work, Current TV staff! All this, plus, Big Daddy Bubba! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
The use of human suffering to further their nefarious goals has never coincided with a perfect storm like this one: a criminal President who believes he’s above the law and the Constitution, a Democratic Party bent on subjugation of the people and an electorate willing to trade freedom for perceived security.
With the impending sale of his failed hate-speech outlet, Current TV, to terrorist-linked Al-Jazeera, Al Gore has transcended the usual hypocrisy that defines modern liberalism to become its living god. He will personally make somewhere in the neighborhood of $70 million.
