Surely, no one could be silly enough to think that a nation built on free enterprise would ever allow a group of unelected lawyers to start making decisions about their doctors. And surely, no President in his right mind would risk the proverbial smack upside the head which would result from a Supreme Court review of the Constitutionality of a second attempt to dig nationalized healthcare out of its grave.
Left-leaning interest groups critical to get-out-the-vote efforts aren’t of the same mind on Keystone XL, and President Barack Obama could not afford to offend environmentalists opposed to anything that encourages the use of fossil fuels. So Obama has decided that Keystone XL must go away until after his re-election campaign climaxes.
Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder stopped by the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss Operation Fast and Furious and cemented himself as the most corrupt and incompetent (the smart money is chasing the latter) head of the Department of Justice since Janet Reno stumbled back to Florida.
In a column for lewrockwell.com, Karen Kwiatkowski writes that she believes the GOP hierarchy is secretly hoping that President Barack Obama wins a second term. Such an outcome would “rally the party troopers and inspire order” lost by the growing Tea Party movement. It’s a theory that would explain many things.
I never supported mandatory term limits. But, far too many of our Senators, Congressmen, commissioners, mayors, aldermen and such hold their positions for far too long. Unfortunately, far too few of my fellow Americans share my attitude.
In 1996, famed jurist and Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork wrote a book titled Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline. If we haven’t actually reached Gomorrah in the 15 years since Bork published his book, we’re certainly headed there at a full sprint.
During the genesis of the Tea Party, the corporate media could barely contain their desire to apply to that group the most defamatory labels possible. No matter how dubious, politically motivated or demonstrably dishonest the source, the hacks in the MSM raced to print spurious tales of racism, violence and hatred. The media coverage of the so-called “occupiers” has been markedly different, although equally suspect.
Herman Cain is the leading vote-getter in our Personal Liberty Digest™ Republican Primary poll (which originally introduced many of you to our site) over the past 30 days. This result seems to mirror Cain’s meteoric rise in national polls following the GOP debate in Florida in late September.
I am intrigued by Herman Cain’s campaign. It continues to break virtually every rule in the book regarding successful Presidential quests; yet it continues to roll full steam ahead, despite the flagrant violations of political sense.
As part of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign and a new National Terrorism Advisory System, DHS is looking at ways to better monitor social networks and “training hundreds of thousands of law enforcement officers across the country in filling out suspicious activity reports” on social network postings.
