” Hope And Change “
Popular speech and political dissent have proved troublesome to President Barack Obama since the very beginning of his term in office. The Obama Administration began waging war on the minority of media outlets that did not worship at his altar immediately after he was sworn in. Just three days into his presidency Obama warned Congressional Republicans against listening to radio host Rush Limbaugh.
In defending his administration’s efforts at putative financial reform, President Obama suggested a ceiling, perhaps government-imposed, for Wall Street executives. Although he did not begrudge them income that is “fairly earned,” he added ominously, “I do think that at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”
the liberals hate the middle class. There, I said it, and I am glad. Once again I am a truth teller, in this case speaking truth to stone heads. So certain am I of the truth of my asseveration that I honestly doubt any liberal will take issue with me. Can you imagine a liberal coming forward and saying: “Wrong, Tyrrell! I love the middle class.” Well, I guess I can imagine it, because liberals are effortless liars. Yet what specifically about the middle class might the liberals adduce to demonstrate their affection? The middle class’ sobriety? Hard work? Love of country? Love of liberty?
“What’s the matter with Arizona?” is the obvious question about the state’s new immigration law. There are a few obvious answers — and a not-so-obvious one that I was surprised to hear from observers across the political spectrum here.
Obviously, the state is reacting — overreacting — in understandable frustration to the federal government’s failure to control illegal immigration.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer
I’ll get a lot of hate mail for saying this, but I’m not a big fan of Sarah Palin. Check that…I’m not a big fan of Candidate Sarah Palin. When she was a spitfire governor of pristine Alaska, that Washington outsider narrative had some pop to it. Today, her Gomer Pyle-with-lipstick schtick wears thin. But what do I know? I’m considered by many to be an insider myself.
I believe the political stars are aligning right now for the opening of a new front in the battle against our gun rights, via the election and work of an anti-gun president, the disarmament passions of the Washington elite and the United Nations, the appointments of gun prohibitionists in the White House and Supreme Court, and the funding of an anti-Second Amendment movement by billionaire progressives, such as George Soros.
In a rush of sable wings and shriekings, the federal murder of crows descends upon every corner of America. But what do I spy in a worn outbuilding? Is that a rusty, creaky old scarecrow rising; with blinking eyes and trembling limbs? Could this be the renascence of the quaint old idea of federalism?
Immigrant-rights protesters in Denver on Saturday blocked city streets while chanting “Si se puede!” (Yes we can!) and waving Mexican flags. Behind these seemingly spontaneous protest marches against Arizona’s tough immigration law are well-organized groups, some that have an agenda of reclaiming America for their race.
It was just one skirmish, but it plainly exposed Congress’ and President Obama’s dereliction of duty in failing to seal our southern border against a direct threat to the peace and security of our nation: drug smugglers.
The new Arizona law has sparked serious debate regarding state government authority to enforce immigration laws in the United States.
Obama Double Standard Disease: an affliction that causes the media to ignore, rationalize or trivialize in order to defend, support and advance the tax-the-rich, spread-the-wealth, expand-the-government agenda of President Barack Obama and his party. This stands in stark contrast with the media treatment of those who refuse to embrace the left-wing, America-bullies-the-world, dissenters-are-racist, pro-amnesty, gay marriage-is-a-right, pro-Roe v. Wade worldview.
No one doubts the sincerity or power of the Tea Party movement anymore. We get it: free-market principles, limited government and individual liberty.
“A few days ago,” Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty relates, “I was having breakfast with my wife, my 91-year-old mother-in-law and daughters, 17 and 13. On TV there was a news report about the financial situation in Greece. Out of the blue, my 13-year-old said, ‘This is going to be us pretty soon.’ I almost dropped my fork. This is an eighth-grader.”
WASHINGTON — A top US Republican lawmaker on Tuesday made a sweeping election-year attack on President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, blasting a landmark nuclear cuts treaty with Russia and efforts to engage Iran.
With six months before November mid-term elections, Representative Eric Cantor urged US voters to back Republicans at “a pivotal time for America to restore its credibility by pursuing peace through strength.”
