At the outbreak of World War II, the Council on Foreign Relations began making plans for the post-war world. The question it posed was this: Could America exist as a self-sufficient nation, or would it have to go outside its borders for vital resources? Predictably, the answer was: imperial empire.
For someone the Democrats have declared irrelevant, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin seems to be surprisingly relevant. According to the left, Palin hasn’t been a real factor since 2008. Yet every time she so much as makes a run to the grocery store, liberals scrutinize her behavior.
Big money is coming out to back Republican challengers to the few liberty candidates up for re-election in 2014. Among those targeted is Representative Justin Amash of Michigan. Amash is one of a handful of lawmakers who pushed Weeper of the House John Boehner to make a stand on Obamacare and fight over the government shutdown and debt ceiling.
Following President Barack Obama’s non-apology-apology during his SUPER DUPER EXCLUSIVE sit down with NBC “reporter” and Obama Administration flack Chuck Todd, the newest of the ever-changing Democratic explanations for the abysmal disaster which is Obamacare revealed itself. As it turns out, the fact that Obama lied about every aspect of Obamacare from the moment he first threatened the Nation with it is immaterial.
The tragic farce that is Obamacare gives new nuggets every day. Now we know from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that there is no Federal requirement to perform background checks on Obamacare navigators and it’s quite possible some criminals have found their way into the system.
On Tuesday, my fellow Savannahians and I ducked into the polls with our usual civic pride (about 19 percent of eligible voters participated). Though the ballot questions dealt with a very local issue, the nature of the question provides what President Barack Obama might call a “teachable moment.”
Politicians lie. It’s their stock in trade. They have to if they are to be elected. So it is certainly no surprise that the undocumented White House usurper whose very life is a fraud would unapologetically tell you for three years that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Period,” and then turn around and brazenly say that he never said that.
Ultimately, pointing out that President Barack Obama and the trash with which he has surrounded himself represent an affront to everything decent about this Nation is about as worthwhile as attempting to explain actual science to Al Gore.
The days of the Federal government’s stealing money from taxpayers or borrowing it from the Federal Reserve to save troubled banks — as in it did in the 2008 crisis — may be over. Congress is considering imitating the theft in Cyprus and letting troubled banks “bail in” depositor money in order to make themselves solvent.
Now that everybody knows (cough, cough) the Los Angeles International Airport shooter was “anti-government,” it follows as night from day that a) he must have developed his political views from conspiracy websites and b) those sites are culpable, right?
