What Obama Should Say (But He Won’t)

with 11 comments

There so much hope that we would finally heal what was left of the racial divide that exists in this country when Barack Obama was elected president of the United States.  That’s why many threw caution to the wind and voted for a poorly qualified man with Marxist tendencies to lead us.  That’s why so many were willing to stick with him for another four years.  Surely, he would finally come through . . . but he hasn’t.

His speech yesterday in Dallas was, without a doubt, one of his best.  However, after extolling the virtues of  the Dallas police and the fallen, he simply couldn’t resist the temptation to legitimize those who feel the police are out to get them as he has done many times before.  Read the rest of this entry »

Before You Cast Your First Stone (At Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis)

with 2 comments

The PC police, who seem hellbent on forcing all people to accept gay marriage after the  controversial Supreme Court Obergefell decision, suffered a setback when activist federal judge David Bunning released Kim Davis from a Kentucky jail.  Davis, a county clerk, spent five days behind bars after refusing to have marriage licenses to same-sex couples go out under her name, which would, in effect,  be condoning a practice that violates her religious beliefs.

Judge Bunning simply could have slapped Kim Davis with a fine but, no, this activist liberal judge chose to throw her in jail until she complied with his wishes.  Tuesday, Bunning backed down, bowing to pressure after denying Davis her due process and her rights under the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.   Read the rest of this entry »

Hillary Clinton: Worst Government Employee in U.S. History

with one comment

The U.S. government has far too many overpaid employees who do little or nothing.  Once hired they are virtually impossible to fire.  They can come in, or not.   They can sleep on their desks for the better part of the day and they are protected by a system that, more often than not, rewards failure and punishes accomplishment.

That said, I must offer my apologies to the thousands of sincere, selfless government employees who come in and do their very best for God and country every day in spite of the mess we’ve created for them.

Far worse than the career government employees are some of the 7,000 or so political appointees who serve at the pleasure of the president.  They are completely untouchable.  Many are unqualified for the jobs they now hold and may have little or no knowledge of the agencies that they now control.  Some say that these political appointees lord it over the rank and file who are simply attempting to do their jobs.

Now, let me nominate a woman who should go down as the very worst government employee in U.S. history.    Her name is Hilary Clinton.  Her claim to fame is that she married a charismatic politician and rode his coattails to the White House, to a seat in the U.S. Senate and to the job of Secretary of State.

McConnell to Newbies: Drop Dead!

with 3 comments

There are twelve new faces in the Republican Senate caucus this year.  Each won a hard-fought victory.

They all made big promises on the road to Washington which they expected to keep.

Without exception, all made definitive statements on the problem of illegal immigration and the president’s plan to create amnesty for millions with the stroke of his pen.   This is a good time to review some of the statements made before and immediately after their elections:

Shelly Capito (R-W.V.) “The president does not have the constitutional authority to grant amnesty to millions of people who have broken the law by entering our country illegally. President Obama’s executive action on immigration is wrong and violates the responsibility of Congress to write and pass laws as outlined in our Constitution. (Facebook posting December 4, 2014)

Bill Cassidy (R-La.) “We must stop Obama … As your senator, I will fight his amnesty plan. Your tax dollars should benefit you, not those here illegally.”  (On-line campaign ad) Read the rest of this entry »

Voters: Caught between a Democrat Rock and a Repubican Soft-Place

with 2 comments

In the run-up to the November election President Obama rightfully said that he wasn’t on the ballot but his policies were.  Voters responded and sent a strong message against those policies by kicking out a large number of Democrat office holders and putting Republicans in control of Congress.

It wasn’t because Republicans had a strong message.  It was because the individual candidates running against those ousted Democrats all voiced their opposition to Obamacare and his illegal executive action granting amnesty to millions of alien lawbreakers.

Three months have passed since that message was sent and voters now find themselves caught between a Democrat rock and a Republican soft-place.   Democrats have no power, but when the issue of Obama’s amnesty came up in the Senate, they put up a united front to shield the president from having to veto a popular measure — the bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security sans funding for amnesty.

When that happened, Republicans, who have all the power,  grabbed their pacifiers and blankies and went into their soft-place hidey-holes.   Read the rest of this entry »
