RE: The US Senate Race in Kansas

voting2

“Independent” Greg Orman, who has so many Democrat Party operative working on his campaign one expects to see Nancy Pelosi’s name on his campaign headquarters door, has stated that he will caucus with whatever party presents the best ideas.

Mr. Orman’s campaign website states:

“If Greg is elected, there’s a reasonable chance that neither party would have a majority in the US Senate. If that is the case, he will work with the other independent Senators to caucus with the party that is most willing to face our country’s difficult problems head on and advance our problem-solving, non-partisan agenda.”

Therein lays the problem, and a perfect example of: a) how constitutionally illiterate our political class has become; b) how constitutionally illiterate our citizenry has become; and c) why the 17th Amendment is the most damaging action ever executed by the Progressive Left throughout US history.

When the Progressives of the early 20th Century marshaled through the 17th Amendment, they did a great damage to the symbiotic set of checks and balanced that achieved protections for both the individual and the individual states, where the power of the federal government was concerned. Under the guise of putting more control of government into the hands of the people, the Progressives, under Woodrow Wilson, literally destroyed the check and balance that protected state sovereignty and, through that erosion, the sovereignty of the individual.

At its inception, the US Constitution mandated, in Article I, Section 3, that:

“The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote…”

The appointment of senators by the state legislators thwarted political faction on the floor of the US Senate. With each senator held accountable by their respective state legislatures for their votes, alliances and actions, the onus for political survival for the senatorial class was devotion to the well-being of their home states. The political ideology or factional allegiance of the senator was irrelevant for the most part. If a senator chose political party over the needs of his home state, the state legislature could – and would – simply recall him through an act the State House, replacing the senator with someone who held allegiance to his home state – and the constitution of that home state – above national political faction.

Understanding this original intent that the Framers built into the Constitution, the idea of Obamacare, or suffocating national debt, or an aggressive IRS, EPA or NSA, would never have come to be. The unfunded mandates of Obamacare would have seen the 54 senators from the 27 states that refused to establish ACA health insurance exchanges – and most likely more from states that did – voting against the bill in its infancy because the legislation harms the well-being of the individual states and usurps the authority of most every state’s constitution. So too, the national debt would never have been allowed to accumulate because it passes down to the citizens of individual states. The IRS would be little more than a gaggle of accountants, the EPA would not exist and the NSA wouldn’t be allowed to operate on US soil, if at all.

Simply put, there would be no party politics in the US Senate. It would be an assembly of representatives of each state’s government, tasked specifically and exclusively with the protection of the home state and her constitution. The passage of the 17th Amendment killed that protection and facilitated political faction on a national level to metastasize in the US Senate, something Pres. George Washington warned vehemently about in his Farewell Address.

The 17th Amendment mandates:

“The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote…”

By tricking – and that’s exactly what the Progressives did – the populace into thinking the popular election of their senators gave them more power over government, it literally established the opposite; delivering great power to national political parties and the federal government, while extinguishing an essential check and balance over said political parties and the federal government. The 17th Amendment took power away from the people and the states, and delivered it to the political parties and the federal government.

So, why is the Senatorial Election in Kansas a perfect example of constitutional illiteracy and Progressive manipulation? Would the 17th Amendment have not been passed Mr. Orman wouldn’t need – or aspire – to caucus with any political faction or party. He would, instead, be carrying out the will of the Kansas State Legislature and, through them, the will of the people of his state. There would be no need – or desire – to “caucus” with those of any particular political “flavor” because the well-being of each state is dictated by the needs of each state and her people, not the leaders of any political party.

To wit, imagine that the 17th Amendment had never passed, or that a smart-thinking Congress repealed it. No longer would we see any – any – legislative gridlock; no longer would we amass unrepayable debt; no longer would we see hyper-partisan or ideological pieces of legislation rammed down our throats; no longer would the American people – and her government – be held hostage to politics…no long would the American people be held hostage to politics.

Still think Progressives are on the side of the people? Yeah, neither do I…I haven’t for a very, very long time.

He’s Free! Now What?

WPTV-Andrew-Tahmooressi-freed_1414860373843_9408097_ver1.0_640_480

President Obama has stated that he had a pen and a phone and would use it if Congress didn’t act. He insinuates that they do nothing to help the American people. He seems to forget that there are over 380 bipartisan bills sitting on his top lapdog, Harry “Hindlick” Reid’s desk who refuses to bring them to the floor for a vote. Why? If they are truly bad and Reid has control of the Senate, and his minions, then there shouldn’t be an issue. Maybe he can call Reid and knock them lose? Never mind. I know his phone is dead!
The phone has to be dead, because for 214 days he was unable to make a phone call on behalf of Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi to Mexican President Enrique Nieto. He also was not able to get Secretary John Kerry on the phone, nor was he able to reach California Governor Jerry Brown who hosted the Mexican president in California to discuss the issue with either of them. Interestingly, a State Department spokesman said they had visited the Sergeant several times in prison. Apparently, he was too doped up to remember.
At first I thought the president must be working behind the scenes with his staff and team like he did to secure Bowe Bergdahl’s release, right? That had to be it. After all, getting one Marine who made a wrong turn out of a Mexican prison had to be so much easier than releasing 5 terrorists who swore Jihad on Americans in exchange for one potential traitor and deserter, right? Wrong!
I believe President Obama, once again, showed his contempt for our military men and women by completely ignoring Andrew’s issue. Really, how easy would this have been? Obama calls Nieto. “Yo Nieto, help me out here. I need to get a boatload of these Dems re-elected so we can set up some more watering stations in the desert for your people to be able to make it across the border safely, that way they can work and send money home for you to steal it from them. I can’t do that if we don’t win. So send the marine home. Tell them what a great job I and my administration did to negotiate a release and I can almost guarantee open borders for all. Waddaya say?” Sounds easy enough. Or he could have suspended NAFTA with that pen of his until he was released.
All I can figure is that what the president did was to respect another country’s legal system and allow their laws to play out. I guess Mexico doesn’t have an “executive order” clause for Nieto to use whenever he feels like it.
Looking back, it was the “do-nothing” Congress, not the “do-everything-wrong-and-in-secret” Administration that got Andrew released. It was several Republican representatives, including Dana Rohrabacher, Ed Royce, Matt Salmon, and former Governor Bill Richardson who went to Mexico and kept applying pressure to the Mexican Attorney General. The judge didn’t release Andrew. It was the AG who dropped the charges forcing the judge to release Andrew.
One unnamed source said that when the AG was explaining how America should understand that Mexico is a “rule of law” country and allow Mexico’s legal system to run its course, the representative basically responded, “So is America, would you like us to allow our legal system to work as it pertains to illegal immigration?

Intelligent Americans Reject Democrat “War on Women” and decide to vote smart

Political polling shows that the American voting public grows increasingly weary of Democrats saying that Republicans oppose mammograms and PAP smears.

Liberal groups funded by commercial abortion operations like Planned Parenthood have been producing dramatic advertisements showing women complaining about Republican candidates who are voting against mammograms and PAP smears – key tools in the detection of women’s health issues. Unfortunately for Democrats, women are smart enough to realize that politicians aren’t banning their health screening or even reducing government funding for mammograms. They’ve just decided that taxpayer money can’t be used to kill babies. If women want to kill their unborn babies, they’ll just have to pay for it themselves. Just wait until those women see what Obamacare has done to their healthcare costs…

Voters are looking at their grocery bills, utility bills and Obamacare bills. Oddly, despite the Democrats assurances, all of those bills have gone up while their pay has not – and one party has ruled the majority of our government for 6+ years.

Why did their salaries stagnate? Probably due to increased competition from a more fluid immigration policy. As more (foreign)  people compete for the same jobs, their is nothing left to cause increased pay pressure.

Democrat policies are the sole cause of stagnant pay, increasing healthcare costs and less-available jobs. Now, they pay the price the rest of us have been bearing under their failed leadership – they may just be out of a job.

The Lightening-Fast Reflexes of the Obama Regime

obama

The Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, announced October 28th that his agency has raised the security level for federal buildings in the aftermath of last week’s terror attacks in Canada:

“The reasons for this action are self-evident: the continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland and elsewhere, including against law enforcement and other government officials, and the acts of violence targeted at government personnel and installations in Canada and elsewhere recently,” Johnson said in a statement. “Given world events, prudence dictates a heightened vigilance in the protection of US government installations and our personnel.”

Aren’t you absolutely bowled over by the cat-like reflexes of the Obama Administration? I mean really, we have only seen the fall of every major town in Iraq, sans Baghdad, the engagement of even Islamist countries in the fight against the Islamic State, beheadings and actual declarations of violent intent from the Islamic State and associated Islamist terror groups. We have seen “faceless selfies” of wanna-be jihadis and jihadist sympathizers featuring signs with pro-Islamic State propaganda in front of buildings in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC. And we have seen beheadings on American soil in the name of Islam. Why should we expect any meaningful and/or timely response from an administration that is still trying to figure out if an infectious disease should warrant a quarantine of travelers arriving from infected countries?

Oh sure, the brilliant mind that is Barack Obama doesn’t succumb to the knee-jerk decision, especially where national security and foreign policy are concerned. That’s probably why he is still deliberating the security of the US border in the face of Islamist terrorists who have declared they will bring car bombs and beheadings to US soil; and why he is purposely ignoring the transportation of infectious disease across the border in the form of Enterovirus 68. Titrated to the Obama Administration’s response rate to serious issues facing the American citizenry, he will probably see our border secured after the 27th car bomb goes off in New York (after he chastises politicians there for their kneejerk Islamophobic responses) and after all of the schools in every state on the Southern border are quarantined.

My deference to Mr. Obama’s intelligence, and his ability to react in a timely manner to any crisis, is Obviously mired in sarcasm. Truth be told, I am more inclined to believe that Mr. Obama – whose entire tenure has been an exercise in group-think and governance by committee – is the dullest crayon in the White House box. Do you think for a moment that if he had achieved exemplary grades at Harvard or had penned a groundbreaking essay for the Harvard Review that the Progressive Left wouldn’t have showcased that behind the altar at the Church of Perpetual Obamaisms? No, it is likelier that he was a sub-par student whose falsely elevated self-esteem afforded him the opportunity to be “good at the mouth” and little else.

We all should have known this – or at least the voters on the Left side of the aisle should have known this – prior to his election in 2008, his only accomplishment being the failure of his community organizing efforts at the Altgeld Gardens in Chicago, still a cesspool of poverty, drug dealers, prostitutes and welfare queens to this day.

Of course, to have discerned Mr. Obama as wholly unqualified for the job would have required Liberal voters to actually think for themselves – before they voted, and to possess the integrity to understand and accept that race isn’t a qualification for office – at any level. To have realized the mistake of Obama – preemptively – would have required those on the pretentious side of the aisle to acquiesce to the notion that their ideological mindset just might not be as “fantabulous” as they think they it is.

Sadly, and to the detriment of liberty, personal freedom and representative government, we all know that the likelihood of a Liberal epiphany is next to nil. Liberals, led like clueless lemmings, will continue to fall prey to the emotionally marketed manipulation of their Progressive overlords; overlords who have co-opted their political party; self-centered and opportunistic overlords who have hoodwinked them into the chains of ideological slavery.

3 Good Reasons To Vote On Tuesday

There is no doubt in my mind that there are people out there that will sit home on Tuesday instead of going out and voting, these are the same people I blame for giving Obama a second term. You know who you are, the ones that refuse to vote for a candidate because they do not agree 100% with what you believe.

With the Senate in our grasp and many tight races every vote counts, if you are not going to vote for someone, than go out and vote against someone. Reagan once said, if he can get 60% of what he wanted in negotiating with Democrats, he considers himself a winner, if it is good enough for Reagan, it should be good enough for you.

I have provided 3 good reasons for going out and voting on Tuesday, I hope they motivate you to get off your ass and head to the voting booth.

 

IF  THESE  3  DON’T  MOTIVATE  YOU,  NOTHING  WILL.

You Can’t Teach An Old Liberal New Tricks

I just don’t get it, after all the failed policies of the Obama administration, after all the bashing corporations for making a profit, Liberals still think that big government is the answer. At a Democratic rally in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton attempted to attack “trickle-down economics.” Clinton defended raising the minimum wage saying “Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs, they always say that.” She went on to state that businesses and corporations are not the job creators of America. “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” the former Secretary of State said.

Time and time again it has been proven that raising the minimum wage will hurt job creation. When you hit the bottom line of a business owner, one of two things has to happen, they have to raise prices or make cuts. Raising prices has to be the last resort in order to stay competitive, which leaves only one area, labor, which is the most expensive cost to any business.

Obviously Hilary agrees with Obama when he famously said to American business owners, “You didn’t build that.” To say that corporations and businesses do not create jobs is at best an asinine statement, if not them, who?  While watching her give that speech, it was boggling to the mind that people in the audience actually cheered and clapped when she made those ridiculous statements. Why doesn’t Hilary go tell Amazon or Microsoft that they are not really creating jobs.

The government reported that there were 248,000 jobs created in September, hey Hilary, who created those jobs, the government? Corporations and businesses create the jobs; people like Obama and Hilary destroy jobs. When government sticks its nose into the private sector trouble follows, over regulation and mandating policy hurts the economy not helps it.

Recently fast food workers were protesting for a higher minimum wage, they do not grasp the fact that they are slowly putting themselves out of work. Automation is slowly creeping its way into the fast food industry and the higher wages go, cheaper automation will be implemented, what’s better, having a job or not having a job?

I cannot believe that there are so many people in this country that still fall for that big government crap. It is the government’s job to create an atmosphere that promotes job creation; this administration has done the complete opposite. The majority of Obama’s job creation has been for part time or low wage jobs, while wages tumble and prices rise, I cannot understand how people still believe that government works for our interest, government works for government’s interest and Obama and the Democratic Party are the perfect examples of that.

And she wants to be our next President? God I hope not.

There is No Voter Fraud… Honest!

VOTE-FRAUD

If you want to see someone on the progressive left blow a gasket, talk about voter fraud. They will all tell you that it doesn’t exist or it’s so small it’s immeasurable. I say they can’t see the forest for the trees!

The hard part about voter fraud is, you have to prove the person knew what they were doing was illegal. Imagine hearing this at the poll:

Poll worker: Hello, your name?

Fraudulent voter: John Smith.

Poll Worker: Sign here Mr. Smith and I’ll give you your ballot.

Poll Worker: Sir, do you know if you are NOT Mr. Smith and you are voting for him it’s a federal offense punishable by fines and jail time?

Mr Smith: Yes, Mr. Poll Worker, and I assure you I’m Mr. Smith.

Please!!!! Have you ever heard this at the polls? Never!

One state assembly person voted 19 times, and yes, she finally got caught. She tried to say that she didn’t remember voting (18 extra times?)

In Florida, major cases of voter fraud go back to 1984 when it became so bad that it was hard to miss. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, types of voter fraud included:

  • Someone voting on behalf of someone else.
    • Purchasing or selling absentee ballots or someone’s vote.
    • Non-city residents voting in municipal elections.
    • Changing of ballots.
    • Voting by absentee ballots under the name of deceased persons.
    • Voting in the election by non-U.S. citizens.
    • False statements or information being provided with regard to address information or changes of addresses on voter registrations.
    • Possible use of certain addresses within the City limits as the “new address” for persons not residing within the City; done with the apparent sole purpose of permitting voting in the municipal election.

Andrew Ladanowski, owner of a computer software company, suspected Florida’s Division of Elections wasn’t really verifying any information.

There were over 700 voter ID cards in Florida that seemed to have been duplicated. He verified his suspicions by dong a quick analysis of Miami-Dade’s voting systems where, it turned out, there were 44 voter ID’s issued to the same person. Elections officials admit 42 of those 44 were duplicates. But what I want to know is, can’t the computer systems find these issues? Can’t we divert some of the millions of dollars wasted on the Obamacare site (or any one of the hundreds of other government programs wasting good tax money) to cleaning up voter registrations?

When finished he found over 762 Florida voters have more than one county-issued voter ID card. Some are registered with the same address, and others are registered in different counties. And a computer can’t flag this information, why?

If You Had to Explain Today’s America to Founders

800px-Signing_of_Declaration_of_Independence_by_Armand-Dumaresq,_c1873_-_restored

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They wants to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

This meeting will determine for our Founding Forefathers if what they sacrificed (at so great a cost) and gave their lives in the service of was worth it. They want to know if the posterity they entrusted their beloved country to had taken up the task with honor, the task of preserving our freedoms as a nation, our morals, principles and the Christian values this country was founded upon over 238 years ago.

Think about it for a moment.

You would have to explain to them how this nation is not the same country they gave us.

You would have to explain how 3,700 babies are murdered in the womb everyday by their own mothers with the approval all of those who stand by and do nothing.

You would have to explain how men “marry” men and women “marry” women with government’s consent and how children in public schools are violated every day by sexual predators.

You would have to explain to them how blasphemy, fornication (sex outside of marriage – 1 Corinthians 6:9) and lewdness are commonplace in our society as a whole. Despite all this, the pulpits in America (for the most part) remain silent, and the church has become a reproach to the nation (See Jeremiah 23, Matthew 23).

You would have to tell them that drinking, gambling, lying, stealing and doing whatever you want, as long as it feels good to you, have become the status quo, instead of a love for God, country, your fellow man and doing unto others as you would have them do unto you (Luke 6:31).

You would have to convey to them that the American people (for the most part) have stood down, tolerated and enabled a tyrannical president and his administration, which are willingly and knowingly destroying America.

You would have to bring them up to speed on why the American people have allowed a criminal administration to remain without consequence for violating numerous laws. These issues include such crimes as Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal and much, much more.

You would even have to explain to them how the government now has their hooks into nearly every portion of our lives, even to the point where if you want to fish in your own lake outside your backdoor, build a fire outside your front door, or even own a gun (which is your right, protected by the Second Amendment), you now have to ask for and receive the government’s permission by getting a permit.

What do you think, after telling them all this, would be the look on their faces? Would it be sadness? Disbelief? Or shame? Would George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin experience deep sorrow in their hearts that they sacrificed so much for nothing?

Was this the posterity they fought so much for? A cowardly bunch of immoral men and women who stood down to tyranny, fell to immorality and let the government control every angle of their lives?

What would they be thinking after they heard all this? I can only imagine.

What disgrace the American people have brought upon the sacrifice of her forefathers because of her immorality and unwillingness to fight the same battles they did. After bringing our Founding Fathers this news, the only thing a reasonable person could do would be to bow his head in shame.

Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have fought, bled and died to preserve this great nation since its founding.

What would our Founding Fathers do in your position if they switched places with you today? If they had the opportunity to right the wrongs and fight against immorality and all forms of tyranny – how would they act? What would they do?

Would they have let things get so bad? Would they have tolerated these long trains of abuses?

History answers that question quickly enough – absolutely not!

John Adams, the second president of the United States, said, “Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”

If only the American people knew their history!

What Kind Of Idiot Wants Gender Neutral Restrooms

It seems like every time I turn around, there is another nail being put into the coffin of society. I cannot believe that there are morons out there that actually believe we should have men and women, boys and girls using the same restrooms. Another thing I cannot believe that the town where this is taking place is in Texas and it is being proposed by the mayor of that town, who just so happens to be a lesbian, God help us. Just like that famous line from the movie Network, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore.”

Every normal person should pick-up and move out of that city and leave the morons and idiots to live in their delusional world. How can anyone in their right mind think that it is OK for a man of 45, to be in the same restroom as a little girl of 7, society seems to be sinking a lot quicker than I thought. Even the fact that this could be a possibility is beyond any reasoning of a normal person.

In this Texas city of Houston, Mayor Annise Parker, the lesbian, is also waging war on the First Amendment by ordering all pastors and priests to hand in to the city, all sermons, speeches, or presentations that deal with homosexuality or gender identity issues. If the city of Houston does not stand-up and kick this mayor out of office, our country is in big trouble.

Let me say something to all those homosexuals out there who read this, I am tired of you trying to shove your lifestyle down my throat, I don’t agree with it, I think it is wrong and it is a perverted and unnatural lifestyle, if you want to live like that keep it to yourself and leave the rest of us alone, I won’t except it.

Now ministers face a 180-day jail term and $1,000 fine for each day they decline to celebrate a same-sex wedding. Just last weekend, a case has arisen in Idaho, where city officials have told ordained ministers they have to celebrate same-sex weddings or face fines and jail time. Homosexuality and same sex marriage are against Christian beliefs, why can’t they deal with it, the First Amendment means nothing to these people, freedom of religion means just that.

We now live in a society that dismisses God, but celebrates homosexuality, drug use, unwed motherhood and abortion. Our society is crumbling around us and no one seems to be doing anything to stop it. Electing idiots like the mayor of Houston is not helping society at all and I do not understand how anyone with half a brain would vote for someone like that.

Killing Confidence in Our Government

New Jersey --(Ammoland.com)- What has been the over-riding theme of life in America since Barack Obama became President in 2008?

It has been the continued loss of confidence Americans have regarding various elements of the federal government.

His Chickens are Coming Home to Roost !

ObaNose

If you ever want to see real thug-style politics, look no further than the current administration. From day one Mr. Obama has told us that lobbyists would not be welcomed in Washington D.C. and that cronyism would not be tolerated. But as I’ve said before, this White House has no real grasp of the English language with confusing language like; “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” or “I will not sign healthcare legislation that will add one dime to our deficit” or “I refuse… to let Detroit go bankrupt”?

Remember the election 2012. It was a very tight election. Things were not too solid for “El Presidente.” The IRS issue, Benghazi, and the economy not close to the 2% index needed to keep us at the misery level we were at. Unemployment numbers were not good but not that bad after being miraculously adjusted for the 38th month in a row. Remember coming into that election we had a 9/11 anniversary attack where 4 Americans were killed. (With the official account stating that locals were mad about a movie made in America against Mohammed and that sparked an event that only happened to be on 9/11.) Also remember, coming into that election the IRS incident happened because of 2 rogue agents in Ohio. Blah blah blah!

After “early voting,” “late registration,” and “night of voting” registration states reported the election outcome with many precincts having over 100% turnout. Yes, it’s true! Several states reporting the extraordinarily high voter turnout also reported that nearly 100% of those votes were for Mr. Obama! (Almost as miraculous as the real Immaculate Conception!)

As it goes, those on the Left did not cry foul, saying only that the people had spoken. Those on the Right said it’s blatant voter fraud. And the reality is, over the past 2 years they have been proving it was voter fraud precinct by precinct (to be covered in a future piece).

So with all the “work” it took to get elected, I am sure the president needed to payback a few of his workers.

Let’s start off with his latest appointment, the “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain. Mr. Klain has 30 years in the medical arena, having managed many hospitals and emergency disaster readiness programs across the country. (INSERT LOUD BUZZER SOUND HERE) Wrong! It’s what you might expect (and hope) to see on a person’s resume who is responsible for implementing the processes and procedures by which Ebola can be tracked in this country and around the globe. Track how and how easily it’s moving. Implement the procedures to contain it or even prevent it from spreading. How about working with the CDC and State Department to make sure we slow it down or maybe even stop it from entering this country again? You would think so. But, hey, as usual, El Presidente knows better.

Mr. Klain is a political hack. He worked as Chief of Staff for Joe Biden at one time and also worked for AL Gore. (Maybe Ebola is the result of climate change?) He, as is the case with most czars and appointees from this administration, has no real experience in the area he is to be assigned to. Not to worry! Mr. Klain will be reporting to none other than Susan Rice.

In appointing Mr. Klain, Obama will effectively bypass another official, Dr. Nicole Lurie, who has served as Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the Department of Health and Human Services since July 2009. She obviously didn’t contribute enough!

Let’s jump to his failed pick for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, Debo Adegbile. This was the first time the Democrat-controlled senate refused to push through one of his choices, even they pushed back and said no way. And saying Adegbile is unqualified was an understatement.

My New Hero: Dan Snyder

We’ll never change the name,” he told USA Today “It’s that simple. NEVER — you can use caps.” Three cheers for Dan Snyder for standing up for himself. In this world of political correctness, where so many buckle under when attacked by the Liberal-Progressives, he is like a breath of fresh air among the many sheep that cannot stand up for what they truly believe.

As Dan Snyder watched his Redskins play the Cardinals last Sunday alongside Ben Shelly, president of the Navajo Nation, the left came out swinging, saying Mr. Shelly was a trader to the Indian nation and not Indian enough. Saying that the Navajo Nation president “entered office under a dark cloud” and “was accused of going behind the back of tribal leaders.” Where was the left when Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was running for office and claimed to be 1/32,000 Indian, or something to that effect. The left went crazy for her, but a president of an Indian nation is not Indian enough,

Also, Chippewa Cree tribesman Wade Colliflower says,”It’s somebody else who knows nothing about us trying to speak for us. It’s kind of an insult.” Colliflower calls the team name a “positive term” that honors Native Americans. While Patowomeck tribe Chief Robert Green told the Richmond Times Dispatch last year, “About 98 percent of my tribe is Redskins fans, and it doesn’t offend them, either.” Kevin Brown, Pamunkey chief, told the paper: “I like the uniforms. I like the symbol.” With 90% of American Indians in favor of the name Redskins, you have to wonder why the Liberal-Progressives are making a stink about it at all.

In a country where most Americans seemed to have turned into a bunch of wusses, Snyder is a breath of fresh air and I hope he stands firm. There are too many people in this country that run and hide any time the left confronts them, needless to say, that is why the country is in the shape that it is in today. We now have the FCC weighing in, threatening to fine anyone who uses the name Redskins, is freedom in this country being stripped away little by little?

Mental incompetent Harry Reid said on the floor of the Senate, “Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it’s just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name.” You noticed he said forced, why is the government forcing a private business owner to change its name, why is the government getting involved at all. While Reid sits on bill after bill that the house has passed and refuses to bring them to a vote, this is what he finds time to do, boy, I can’t wait until November when his ass will be gone. Isis, Ebola, Economy, Reid has more important things to do, like forcing business owners to change something that it is their Constitutional right to do, like name their business what they want to name it.

Yes Mr. Snyder, you are my new hero, I wish there were more Americans like you. But I still have a little fear, a fear that you might cave to the morons on the left who have nothing better to do then cause trouble where there is none, I hope you stay strong.

Obama: Squashing The American Spirit

There is no doubt that Obama cannot come anywhere close to being compared to Ronald Reagan, the closest president he can be compared with would be Jimmy Carter and if Carter is a better president than you, you are in pretty bad shape. I have always said that there could never be a worse president than Jimmy Carter, but I was obviously wrong.

In 1984 Ronald Reagan won a second term as president, Reagan was able to carry 525 electoral votes against Mondale’s meager 13, making it the largest victory margin in a US presidential race ever. It was his TV ad that really hit home for all Americans, his Morning in America ad touched Americans and celebrated the American Spirit, it said in part:

“It’s morning again in America. Today more men and women will go to work than ever before in our country’s history. With interest rates at about half the record highs of 1980, nearly 2,000 families today will buy new homes, more than at any time in the past four years. This afternoon 6,500 young men and women will be married, and with inflation at less than half of what it was just four years ago, they can look forward with confidence to the future. It’s morning again in America, and under the leadership of President Reagan, our country is prouder and stronger and better. Why would we ever want to return to where we were less than four short years ago?”

This successful motivational ad instilled optimism among Americans who, at the time, had just suffered through a tough recession. “It’s morning again in America” was exactly what America needed, and voters overwhelmingly gave Reagan a second term as President and woke up to a fresh start. Ronald Reagan was a strong decisive leader, who took the bull by the horns and led this country to prosperity, he was a true leader, something we are lacking in America today.

Unfortunately, America is stuck with Obama, who should not even be allowed to run a hot dog stand, let alone the greatest country the world has ever seen. As Obama draws “Red Lines” that he ignores, he stumbles his way through scandal after scandal, saying he knew nothing about them, but only heard about them while watching the news on TV, his lies about Benghazi and Obama-Care and who knows what else that will surface in the next two and a half years.

Obama celebrates the unemployment rate, which has dropped to 5.9%, but it went down only because more people have given up looking for work. Incomes have dropped, gas prices (When Obama took office, gas was $1.84 a gal.) and groceries have gone up, over 60% of Americans think that we are still in a recession, home ownership is down and Obama says America is getting back to normal, if this is normal, America is in big trouble.

Obama promised so much, but gave us so little, except for a lot of lip service. If you watched Bill O’Reilly’s interview with Leon Panetta, who pretty much blamed Obama for the stalemate in Washington, saying that if Obama did not change, nothing would get done in the next two and a half years. Panetta also wrote in his book of Obama’s “frustrating reticence to engage his opponents and rally support for his cause” and his tendency to rely “on the logic of a law professor rather than the passion of a leader.”

We desperately need a leader in this country, a leader like Ronald Reagan, a leader that will give us a new morning in America, because we are waking-up from the nightmare of an Obama.
