  • The Environmental Protection Agency — Next Stop on a Guided Tour of the Deep State’s Covert(T)

    03/11/2017 7:12:12 AM PST · by rktman · 7 replies ^ | 3/11/2017 | Virgil
    Everyone’s talking about the Deep State now. The other day, Virgil searched “deep state” and found, just in the Google News section, no less than 3.86 million hits. Republican politicians are using the phrase, and so are Democratic pols. In fact, one Democrat, Rep. Ted Lieu of California, chose to “own” the phrase, tweeting, “We are #Deep State.” Translation: Trump, we are coming for you. Indeed, the Deep State hashtag is now busy, used by both fans and foes of the DS. There are even a bunch of Twitter accounts on the Deep State theme—which may or may not have...

    The Democrat's attack on political speech will come to a point this week when the Senate votes on a measure that would overturn the Citizens United decision and give federal authorities the power to regulate all manner of political speech including books and pamphlets.

    "If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation down...
  • Illegal immigrant tax cheats? Time to simplify tax code

    05/14/2012 5:33:28 AM PDT · by cap10mike · 20 replies ^ | May 14, 2012 | Michael Dorstewitz
    Barely a day goes by that President Barack Obama doesn’t harangue us with complaints that we’re not all paying our “fair share.” Considering the fact that 47 percent of American households pay no federal income tax whatsoever, and that the top 5 percent of wage earners pay almost 59 percent of the total tax revenue, I agree with the president: There are those who are taking advantage of the Internal Revenue Code’s complexity. But it’s not the people the president has in mind each time he delivers his class warfare address. Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR recently uncovered a growing segment...

    President Obama swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.—Presidential Oath If what Arizona’s Sen. Kyl is alleging is true and correct president Barry Hussein Soetoro and the Democrat Party are engaged in an ongoing conspiratorial act of treason against the United States of America for political advantage and gain. That act is called Comprehensive Immigration Reform. (see...

    House Democrats looking at 'Slaughter Solution' to pass Obamacare without a vote on Senate bill UPDATED! Would House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow House Democratic leaders try to cram the Senate version of Obamacare through the House without actually having a recorded vote on the bill? Not only is the answer yes, they would, they have figured out a way to do it, according to National Journal's Congress Daily: "House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter is prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill, the chairwoman said...

  • Disgrace: Gibbs says Ahmadinejad is the elected leader of Iran

    He could have said the election’s irrelevant from our standpoint since we have to play the cards we’re dealt; he could have noted, as Obama’s often done in the past, that true power resides in the supreme leader so it’s only his legitimacy that’s at issue; or he could have told the truth and said that all Iranian elections are shams since true reformers aren’t allowed on the ballot. Instead, so desperate are these tools to get Iran to the bargaining table and show Americans some sort of dividend from Hopenchange diplomacy that Gibbs actually acknowledges Ahmadinejad as the “elected...

    Once upon a time there was a politically ambitious man who told many lies about himself and his family. We shall call him Mr. X. During one of his early political campaigns a political enemy circulated rumors that Mr. X was born in a foreign country and therefore ineligible for high elective office. Mr. X denied the charge saying his father was a British subject but that he (X) was born here. Mr. X claimed that his mother had always lived in the U.S. which was untrue as she had lived in another country with her husband and had (a...

    Fiedor Report On the News #328 ^ | 12-5-04 | Doug Fiedor
    One does not expect honor from those operating in an illegal system. And let's face it, if our Constitution is supposed to be the "law of the land," the federal government we have now must be the most successful illegal operation in the history of this nation. The U.S. Supreme Court has said many times that when we look for an explanation of what is meant (what was intended by the authors) in the Constitution, one should turn to The Federalist Papers as an expert source for guidance. That being so, we see that we now have a government greatly...
  • PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE ACLU -- Thought Police Strike Again!

    In other words, the ACLU and its plaintiffs are just plain anti-American and they want to get rid of the Pledge for the sake of getting rid of the Pledge. To the drugged up, warped senses of the ACLU, citizenship appears to be a rotting, archaic concept. National unity and patriotism are outmoded values. Duty, honor, and country are the relics of dead generals that have yet to be sued out of school history books in some not-too-distant lawsuit campaign. Liberty is to be replaced with license.....
