Outside the Asylum
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.
Just a month after the Newtown, Conn., massacre and just days after Obama signed his oath- and Constitution-violating executive orders (behind a wall of yet more defenseless tots), one of his top lieutenants admitted that Obama’s plan is about as likely to work as a sizable number of his voters.
Observing Gun Appreciation Day strikes me as a bit on the juvenile side. It’s almost as if the celebrants will be throwing an exceptionally noisy tantrum. 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.
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.
Like many Americans, I rose to greet 2013 with a renewed sense of hope and a belief that the new year would bring forth joy and success. I made it as far as my morning news roundup before I realized I was wrong.
In an interview with David Gregory, President Barack Obama repeated his opposition to the National Rifle Association’s suggestion to place armed security at the schools Obama’s and Gregory’s children pass on their way to the mall. The two men send their children to the excellent — and well-defended — Sidwell Friends School.
Being the helpful sort of fellow I am, I thought “why not catch a movie and then yammer about it in print for the Personal Liberty Digest™?” Since Bob Livingston wasn’t around to say something like “that’s the kind of idea which makes me consider replacing you with a syndicated horoscope;” off to the theater I went.
In honor of the holiday, Ben Crystal provides his take on a classic Christmas poem with a political bent. We hope you enjoy it!
