Much attention these days is focused on the Republican Presidential beauty contest, especially now that primaries have begun. But a far more important election is much closer to home: the race for your county sheriff.
On Tuesday morning, President Obama signaled that more of his “change we can believe in” was approaching from south of the border. He promoted Cecilia Muñoz, a former lobbyist for the racist hate group National Council of La Raza, to the position of Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council.
I have no doubt that Barack Obama daydreams about appointing himself an eleventy-star generalissimo, wearing a garish uniform he found on Tinpots-R-Us and assigning himself a title which would make Idi Amin blush. But the dream and the reality of imposing a dictatorship on the United States live a far cry from one another.
Fresh off his stunning (a possible ill-gotten) second-place finish in Iowa, former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is trying to claim the mantle of the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. Such a claim would spark belly laughs and derisive hoots and catcalls in a sane world.
Because conservatives are a variegated lot, the possibility looms that some of the candidates will extend their campaigns or even step out to third-party status. Such long-term division would create a split movement, hike expenses into the stratosphere and allow the Barack Obama machine to further coordinate the game plan.
Judicial Watch has released its annual list of Washington’s 10 Most Corrupt Politicians. Unfortunately for us, and the United States, the scandals were so prevalent in 2011 that Judicial Watch couldn’t narrow the list to just 10. Following the Top 10 are the seven Dishonorable Mentions.
Last week, my esteemed colleague John Myers donned his swami hat and peered into the future. As I perused his prognostications, one in particular caught my eye: “Expect us to have to endure another four years with Barack Obama as President.” I recoiled in horror at the very prospect.
Annual flu vaccinations are big business for Big Pharma, doctors and others who get commissions on every vaccination they give. If this were not so, do you think big chain pharmacies would spend so much money and time promoting them?
From time to time, liberals manage to stumble onto the proper course of action; although their discoveries routinely fall into the “fire enough arrows and you’ll eventually hit a tree” department. Witness Federal Judge John Bates’ decision to turn back a challenge to section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
How our minds are conditioned and controlled: If a person believes a “fact” long enough, he or she cannot ponder or contemplate information or a question that challenges the fact. The mind simply cannot process information that conflicts with previously accepted data. Prior conditioning is difficult to challenge.
