Alexander's Column

You Might Be a Conservative If...

And Especially If...

By Mark Alexander · April 9, 2014   Print
"Our conflict is not likely to cease so soon as every good man would wish. The measure of iniquity is not yet filled; and unless we can return a little more to first principles, and act a little more upon patriotic ground, I do not know when it will..." --George Washington (1779)
2014-04-02-95b2f2fb.jpg
As a follow-up to my profile on the attributes of contemporary liberals, "You Might Be a Liberal If...," I offer this look at the attributes associated with today's conservatives.

Too often, political "Left v Right" labels are applied without conveying anything substantive about the beliefs or worldviews of the individual upon whom the label has been conferred.

So what's in a name?
To answer that question, I've reviewed my own lists of conservative principles in order to better profile those who identify as "conservative." Again, with apologies to Jeff Foxworthy:
You Might Be a Conservative If You...

...know the difference between Rule of Law and rule of men -- Liberty and tyranny.
...embody the real spirit of Patriots' Day.
...still "hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
...believe George Washington is the quintessential model for presidential character.
...never lose sight of what's Good and Right about America.
...would still give your life and fortune in defense of First Principles.
...fully understand that Liberty is endowed by our Creator.
...hold sacred your oath "to support and defend" the Constitution of the United States.
...know what "E Pluribus Unum" actually means.
...are a genuine American Patriot.
...believe that Liberty is colorblind and not a "white thing."
...respect and abide by the plain language of our Constitution.
2014-04-09-a8c36325.jpg
...understand the principle of Constitutional Federalism as reiterated by President Reagan's executive order on Federalism.
...know that the Second Amendment makes all other rights possible.
...refuse to allow the Democrat Leftists to sell out the Second Amendment by international treaty.
...know that "gun free zones" are actually free-fire zones for mass murderers.
...observe the true meaning of Memorial Day rather than heading to the mall for a great sale.
...honor our nation's noble Veteran Patriots.
...think that Barack Hussein Obama and his NeoCom cadres are the greatest national security threat to American Liberty and our constitutional republic.
...recognize that ideological socialists have hijacked the once-noble Democratic Party.
...see the election of an utterly unqualified and inexperienced "community organizer" to the most powerful office in the world as proof of how profoundly naive and unserious the American public can be.
...are aware of Barack Obama's history as a lifelong Marxist.
...find Obama's ethnocentric America-hating theology antithetical to Liberty.
...credit the foreign policy fecklessness of our current president for having enabled the "Russian Spring."
...still want John Kerry indicted for treason.
...are proud of, rather than ashamed of, our nation's heritage of faith.
...abhor the oppression of our First Amendment rights to religious expression by DoD and other government agencies.
...reject the Leftist assertion that "faith and politics don't mix."
...know that the words "separation of church and state" do not appear in our Constitution, neither in text or spirit.
...understand that fatherhood is the foundation of Liberty.
...stand firm in defense of Judeo-Christian principles when confronted with the homosexual agenda.
...refuse to tolerate the Rainbow Mafia's intolerance of divergent views, as with the recent persecution of Phil Robertson and Brendan Eich.
...don't hesitate to offer others a "blessed Thanksgiving" or "Merry Christmas."
2014-04-09-0334ae2a.jpg
...think protecting our borders is a national security issue, not a political football.
...understand that the 14th Amendment does not authorize citizenship for "anchor babies" and their kinfolk.

...know that profiling potential terrorists is more effective than randomly patting down children and 80-year-old grandmothers.
...know that al-Qa'ida is thriving despite Barack Obama's claims to the contrary.
...created a lot of wealth but have not retired from the front lines of the fight for Liberty.
...believe that free enterprise always trumps socialism.
...know that the near-economic collapse in 2008 was rooted in Democrat economic policies initiated by Bill Clinton in 1994.
...know that America may one day look like Detroit if we continue to elect Democrat "leadership."
...know that the words "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" are a euphemism for "statist tyranny."
...recognize the addictive evil of the ObamaNation Poverty Plantations.
...prefer to give people a hand up rather than a hand out.
...see clearly the hypocrisy of Obama's rhetoric about "income inequality" while he lives like a king on redistributed wealth.
...reject classism and socialist class warfare.
2014-04-09-f2730ba0.jpg
...acknowledge Barack Obama as the modern-day master of the "BIG Lie."
...are at risk of being on Obama's IRS Enemies List.
...know that narcissism and tyranny are political collaborators.
...recognize that ObamaCare must be dismantled or it will accelerate the collapse of free enterprise.
...are well aware that Obama's outright lies about ObamaCare were politically calculated.
...are not among the Left's cadres of Earth worshipers.
...reject the Left's global warming hysteria and recognize the Left's real agenda is regulating free enterprise.
...are aware that recent evidence indicates the Earth may be cooling, not warming.
...are outraged by the Obama administration's alteration of the Benghazi talking points in order to protect Obama's foreign policy image ahead of the 2012 election.
...understand that "tolerance and diversity" are Leftist shorthand for "tyranny."
...recognize race-baiting political hustlers for what they are.
...know that Barack Obama's Leftmedia sycophants are perpetuating a fraud when they pretend to be "journalists."
...view all violence against innocent victims as a "hate crime."
...object to the Leftmedia blackout of black-on-white crime, which is statistically far more frequent than white-on-black crime.
...see the bankruptcy and desperation of the Democrat Party reflected its choice of Bill Clinton as its spokesman.
...are aware that the GOP's "establishment Republicans" are a key element in the Democrats' current "divide and conquer" strategy.
2013-10-24-4bfc5e64_medium.jpg
...view fratricidal political infighting as the biggest obstacle to restoring Liberty and Constitutional integrity.
...honor the real spirit of the grassroots Tea Party Movement despite its shameful misrepresentation by the Leftmedia.

...understand that the model for restoring Liberty is Ronald Reagan and that our nation is at another Time for Choosing.
...appreciate what George Washington meant when he said, "Citizens by birth or choice of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations."

And finally, if you know that the most cost-effective way you can promote Essential Liberty, help restore constitutional limits on government and the judiciary, and advocate for free enterprise, national defense and traditional American values, is to support The Patriot Post, you are most assuredly a Conservative -- and a Patriot!

A traitor by any other name would be called a Democrat.


Anyone who has ever visited a beachfront community knows that every house built there is firmly anchored to the ground on strong pilings. The reason is obvious: you cannot build a house resting on the sand alone because the lack of a foundation will cause the house the drift away as the sand shifts. Such an apt analogy applies to another house we all know about, the House of Representatives, the home of our lawmakers in Congress. The figurative pilings required to anchor this House is our United States Constitution, the document that all lawmakers swear to uphold in their oath of office.

Too bad most of those lawmakers have no idea about the meaning of the words they take in their oaths.

Lets start at the top. Listen to the calls for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama for his innumerable crimes. The most conservative of the Republican members of the House claim that such a vote for impeachment would be useless since the action would then transfer over to the U.S. Senate for the trial and the Senate is controlled by liberal Democrats. Now drop down a notch and look at the Republican-led House committee investigating the IRS scandal that targeted Barack Hussein Obama's political enemies in the Tea Party groups. The same conservatives on the committee want to hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of Congress for refusing to reveal details about the pro-Democrat scandal. They are currently debating asking the Department of Justice to seek a criminal indictment against Ms. Lerner. Yesterday, Attorney General Eric Holder, who is in charge of the DoJ and who, himself, is subject of another Contempt of Congress order for refusing to provide documents about covering up a DoJ orchestrated gun-running scheme, made a remarkable statement before another House sub-committee wherein he said that he has a "vast amount" of discretion in enforcing laws. Holder's DoJ refused to investigate the Black Panthers who intimidated voters in Philadelphia in 2008. Holder says black people should have laws applied differently to them. Holder even told the state's attorneys general a few months ago
they are not obligated to defend state laws they don't agree with. This is how the epidemic of corruption spreads from the top down.

Add Eric Holder's name to the list of Democrats who have no idea about the meaning of the words he took in his oath of office.

Maybe these people should be charged with perjury for lying under oath when they swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and had no intention of doing so. Perjury is, after all, a somewhat higher crime.

Now if it is so highly unlikely that the DoJ would ever prosecute Democrat Lois Lerner for her miniscule crimes before a House sub-committee, speaking about the members of the U.S. Senate, the one reason no one could expect the Democrats there to look unfavorably upon the criminal misdeeds of Barack Hussein Obama was evidenced in a vote on a United Nations treaty to disarm and confiscate weapons held by law-abiding American citizens. When U.N. Resolution 2117, which lists 21 points dealing with the control of firearms and point number 11 calls for member states to support the collection and disarmament of its citizens, came before them, 46 Senators, 44 Democrats plus 2 Independents decided to ignore the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and voted to pass it. Luckily the resolution failed, but 46 members of the U.S. Senate did vote to surrender the sovereignty of the United States of America. Should we ever see treason trials on the order of what took place in Nuremberg, Germany following WWII I would expect the hangman's gallows would be quite busy for some time.


It is no longer a joke or even sarcastic humor to equate Democrats with hypocrites. It is no longer relevant to mention that the delegates to the Democratic National Convention in 2012 tried to remove the name of God from their party platform. It has become a matter of life or death for our nation to see them all for what they really are. Back in the days when a majority of our Congressional representatives knew who our real enemies were we used to have a House Committee on Un-American Activities. It was an investigative committee of the United States House of Representatives. It was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties. It was abolished in 1975 when the Democrats were in power. Maybe it is time to bring it back.

From the Noisy Room: America’s New Progressive Depression


America’s New Progressive Depression

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
America the beautiful… once a symbol of strength in military might, economics and morality, has now become an elitist dumping ground. Simply a source to serve those that rule – a gluttonous buffet of resources to be used until there is no more. A fiefdom ruled by psychotics, where Constitutional freedoms are an annoyance.
Virtually every figure the government gives you is a lie. Manipulated to keep you calm. But the reality of what is going on is something all of us are living. The question is, will we survive it?
For my husband, it is the computer industry. A profession my husband and I chose many years ago. It pays well and is stable. Or it used to be. Now, you change jobs every few years. We’ve had to move thousands of miles to find work. When you do find work, you tread ever so carefully to be politically correct, because one small infraction will cost you your job. We live in constant fear of our jobs being outsourced to India, where labor is far cheaper. The ironic part is that we have never seen a product come back that actually works. By the time the employer realizes that, they have let everyone go and they have to start over. What’s even worse is they never seem to learn. You get what you pay for and you reap what you sow.
The truth is many, many have given up. They’ve given up on ever owning their own home, their own business, their freedom… They are just trying to make enough to feed and clothe their families. People are existing day to day, not knowing what tomorrow will bring.
Rush Limbaugh was right last week – America’s collapse will look like the Great Depression. And it is happening right in front of us and all around. As the government goes deeper into the debt hole, they will start seizing your investments, your retirement, your savings. They will have to. It won’t save them, but will put off the inevitable collapse for just a bit. I’m surprised we haven’t had an across the board haircut on our accounts already, a la Greece. If things don’t radically change and soon, most people won’t even have the government to turn to. There is nothing left, but ourselves in the end.
Right now, it’s as if the greatest number of long term unemployed that America has ever seen, have simply vanished. They’ve given up and the government has stopped counting them as even existing. But they are there – hungry and desperate. Disillusioned of the American Dream. With skyrocketing food and energy prices, seeing even longer lines at food banks and shelters will be the norm. People will start dying from this. In fact, I’m sure they already are. Welcome to Obama’s transformed America.
We are now living under a de facto dictatorship, with a lawless President who simply bypasses Congress and ignores the Constitution. Decreeing what will be and what justice will be meted out. The Obamas live and rule as royalty, with no empathy and no caring as to the consequences of their actions. They believe America has it coming and that once it collapses, it can be reformed into a Communist utopian hell, where Marxists rule and the rest subsist. If you want to find out how democracy ends and what happens, read de Tocqueville. We are there.
After 9-11, employment began to fall. Most of us thought it was the shock of the terrorist attacks to the economy. But in truth, it was Progressive policies incremented a bit at a time by the Left and the Right. Many of us were fooled into believing that global trade was the way to go. That the markets would right themselves. But what we didn’t get was that the world is not inherently capitalistic and the markets are certainly not free. Those such as Warren Buffet (who is moving his American Fruit of the Loom factory in Kentucky to Honduras), who see a way to cut costs and go offshore, leap at the chance. He cares about his bottom line and not those that work for him. That’s his choice – it’s his company. But we have now offshored so much of our manufacturing that the US has become a dependent country on others. And that is very, very dangerous… especially when you combine it with the suicidal level of debt that we have racked up and are merrily still doing so. Our trade deficit is out of control as well, making us poorer by the minute. The insanity must stop. The incessant printing of money and spending in a never ending downward spiral of denial, depravity and greed has to end. It may already be too late, but we need to stop this and rebuild.
Someone needs to explain to the Harvard and Yale grads out there, that we know you are trying to please your stock holders by cutting the bottom line. But if you destroy your consumer base, by destroying the middle class, eventually, there will be no one for you to do business with. You are committing corporate suicide and taking the damn country with you. Short sighted doesn’t begin to cover it. You can see it in our deteriorating cities, in our lowering of our lifestyles, in the hunger all around us.
America became strong through visionary inventors and the small business entrepreneurial spirit. Both have been squashed by big government, regulations and taxes. If we are to ever become great again, we must turn back to those basic concepts. In reality, Americans should never have bought into the ‘employment’ trap to begin with. As our Founding Fathers did, you can work for yourself, or at least you could in the past. Obama is trying to ‘fix’ that and not to our benefit.
Some believe we have at least stabilized on our downward trend. I disagree. While the free fall may have slowed a bit, it never stabilized. There is just so much propaganda and lies out there, you can’t believe anything anymore. You have to believe what you see for yourself. Take a look at the raft of retail closings that are occurring:
  • Quiznos has filed for bankruptcy, USA Today reported, and could close many of its 2,100 stores.
  • Sbarro which operates pizza and Italian restaurants in malls, is planning to close 155 locations in the United States and Canada. That means nearly 20 percent of Sbarro’s will close. The chain operates around 800 outlets.
  • Ruby Tuesday announced plans to close 30 restaurants in January after its sales fell by 7.8 percent. The chain currently operates around 775 steakhouses across the US.
  • An unknown number of Red Lobster stores will be sold. The chain is in such bad shape that the parent company, Darden Restaurants Inc., had to issue a press release stating that the chain would not close. Instead Darden is planning to spin Red Lobster off into another company and sell some of its stores.
  • Ralph’s, a subsidiary of Kroger, has announced plans to close 15 supermarkets in Southern California within 60 days.
  • Safeway closed 72 Dominick’s grocery stores in the Chicago area last year.
  • Office supply company Staples has announced plans to close 225 stores by 2015, which is about 15 percent of its chain. Staples already closed 40 stores last year. Industry analysts expect Staples’ main competitor, Office Depot, which bought OfficeMax last year, to announce its own round of store closings soon.
  • Radio Shack has announced plans to close 20 percent of its stores this year, which is as many as 1,100 stores. The company, which operates around 4,000 stores, reported that its sales fell by 19 percent last year.
  • Albertsons closed 26 stores in January and February according to Supermarket News. Analysts expect many more Albertsons could soon be shuttered because Albertsons owner hedge fund Cerberus Capital Management just bought Safeway Inc. Some Safeway stores could soon shut down as well.
  • Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch is planning to close 220 stores by the end of 2015. The company is also planning to shut down an entire chain it owns, Gilly Hicks, which has 20 stores, 24/7 Wall Street reported.
  • Barnes & Nobles is planning to shut down one third of its stores in the next year: about 218 stores. The chain has already closed its iconic flagship store in New York City.
  • J.C. Penney is closing about 33 stores and laying off about 2,000 employees.
  • The Record newspaper in New Jersey reported that Toys R Us has plans to close 100 stores.
  • The Sweetbay Supermarket chain will close all 17 of the stores it operates in the Tampa Bay area, The Herald Tribune newspaper reported. Many of the stores might open as Winn-Dixie Stores. Sweetbay closed 33 stores in Florida last year.
  • The entire Loehmann’s chain of discount clothing stores in the New York City area shut down. Loehmann’s once operated 39 stores, The New York Times reported, and was considered an institution by generations of New Yorkers.
  • Industry analyst John Kernan told CNN that he expects Sears Holdings, which owns both Sears and Kmart, to close another 500 stores this year. Sears has already shut down its flagship store in Chicago.
This past year I have seen a first… I saw a McDonald’s fail. Now grocery stores? It’s not because people don’t eat, it’s because government regulation is pushing prices so high, people are buying less and stores can’t make a profit. It’s elementary dear Watson.
America is changing as it did with the Industrial Revolution, only the change is much more pronounced this time and much more of a jarring shock to workers. How it is changing and what direction is yet to be seen. Some say it is an uber jump by technology. But if it is a collapse, it will be a fall into a new Dark Ages. One direction will call for the learning of new technology skills… the other will call for survival skills. Either way, elitist Progressives will still shrug and tell the masses who have no jobs to eat cake instead of productively solving the problem at hand.
We are in serious economic trouble as a nation and our enemies know it. One black swan event could finish us off. Russia and China are already making moves to remove the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency, thanks to the drunk bureaucrats at the helm of America’s budget and finances. If they succeed and all indications are that they will, America is down for the count. America’s new Progressive Depression will envelop all of us. Our only recourse is taking control of our country back and installing new, conservative leadership — whatever it takes.

A Bridge Too Far in the Heartland of America


The banner headline for the American Trucking Association's web site reads: "The trucking industry is the lifeblood of the U.S. economy. Nearly 70% of all the freight tonnage moved in the U.S. goes on trucks. Without the industry and our truck drivers, the economy would come to a standstill. To move 9.2 billion tons of freight annually requires nearly 3 million heavy-duty Class 8 trucks and over 3 million truck drivers. It also takes over 37 billion gallons of diesel fuel to move all of that freight. Simply – without trucks, America stops." With such an important job you would think the government would maintain the highways and bridges these trucks depend on.

The Interstate 75 (I-75) corridor is a major six to eight lane north-south Interstate Highway that runs from Florida through Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and up into Michigan to the Canadian border. The report from the Office of Highway Policy Information from August 2013 says upwards of 45,000 trucks pass through Kentucky and Ohio every day, all across one single 50-year old bridge. The Brent Spence Bridge opened in November 1963 between Covington, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio and carries in excess of 200,000 vehicles every day. In spite of the huge volume of goods hauled by trucks across this vital north-south highway, nothing has been done to replace the overloaded bridge. The debate over replacing this bridge has been going on for many years with the states of Ohio and Kentucky unable to find the resources to pay for a billion-dollar replacement. The federal government has shown no interest in the project other then allocating 30-million dollars for various studies.


To put things in perspective, the Barack Hussein Obama pro-Muslim Democrats in Washington have been spending trillions (trillions with a T) on rebuilding the entire infrastructures in Iraq and Afghanistan, that include new bridges, highways, and $545 million alone for 3 water treatment facilities plus new hospitals and electrical systems as well as constructing the new U.S. Embassies there that also included a billion-dollar fortress in Pakistan. That's enough to pay for a thousand new bridges in America. If that wasn't extravagant enough then the new decoration being installed in front of the embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan should get everyone's attention, both for its misdirection, its cost and for its uselessness.

Buzzfeed reports today: The State Department has purchased a $400,000 statue to be erected in front of the new billion-dollar U.S. Embassy in Islamabad.
Islamabad, Pakistan, the hiding place of choice for Osama bin Laden and home of the most barbaric, Sharia-defending, anti-American Islamic population in the world is about to get a statue that should offend every Muslim. In case anyone missed the point, the statue of a Camel staring at the eye of a needle symbolizes a key parable from the Christian Holy Bible which should go a long way to please the Muslims who have been commanded by their prophet Mohammed to wage war and kill all of the Believers of the Book, i.e. Christians and Jews. The new embassy has been in construction since 2009 when Barack Hussein Obama ordered an increased American presence in Muslim countries. The previous U.S. embassy was burned down by enraged Muslims in 1979 all because of a false radio report. There has been no progress in improving Islamic-American relations over the ensuing years. They only hated us more after we killed Osama bin Laden. And it could hardly be expected coming from a country that will chop off the hand of any Christian who so much as touches a Qur'an.

One of the most important parables taught by Jesus Christ, and repeated in the Gospels written by Mathew, Mark and Luke in The New Testament of the Christian Holy Bible was: "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25. How well this statue is accepted in an anti-Christian country is anyone's guess - unless the true purpose was to incite further hatred for America by erecting it in front of our new embassy. Too bad no one learned anything from the recent history there. Or maybe they did. Wikipedia remembers: "On November 22, 1979, Pakistani students, enraged by a radio report falsely claiming that the United States had bombed the Masjid al-Haram, Islam's holy site at Mecca, stormed the U.S. embassy in Islamabad, and burned it to the ground. Security was again significantly increased in the wake of the September 11 attacks in 2001. On 9 August 2013, the United States State Department evacuated most diplomats and all non-emergency staff from the consulate in Lahore, and U.S. citizens were warned not to travel there due to terror concerns."

After Obama rebuilds the entire middle-east and bankrupts our own economy in the process, we won't have any need for a new bridge across the Ohio River because there won't be any traffic other than the Army tanks moving in to quell the revolution. Democrats are very good at starting wars, even at home.

Democrats: The Party of Death, Crime and Corruption.


One word describes them all: Hypocrites. 
The Mayor of Charlotte, N.C. Democrat Patrick Cannon submitted his resignation after he was arrested by the FBI for allegedly accepting $48,000 in bribes in exchange for the use of his official position.

In Rhode Island, Democrat Gordon Fox, Speaker of the House, resigned after the FBI and agents from the IRS, the U.S. attorney's office and the state police raided both his home and his office.

A state senator in California, Democrat Leland Yee, a staunch supporter of gun-control legislation, was arrested by the FBI and charged with conspiracy to purchase millions of dollars of illegal firearms from the Philippines to be resold in the U.S. in exchange for contributions to his election campaign. As reported by
the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms:
 

BELLEVUE, WA – Criminal charges announced in San Francisco federal court Wednesday afternoon against anti-gun California State Sen. Leland Yee and several others shows the contemptible nature of the gun prohibition movement, because among the allegations is one that he was involved in a conspiracy to traffic firearms, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“If these allegations are true,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States.”

The complaint alleges that Sen. Lee conspired with two other men, identified as Keith Jackson, a political consultant, and Dr. Wilson Sy Lim, to traffic in firearms. “The 137-page complaint is simply staggering,” Gottlieb added. “Here’s a prominent anti-gun Democrat state senator allegedly involved in a gun trafficking scheme, among other alleged crimes that include wire fraud and dealing firearms without a license. And this guy has spent a considerable amount of energy in the California legislature trying to deny law-abiding Californians of their gun rights.”

The gun trafficking scheme allegedly involved activities in the Philippines, with the cash to be broken up into “legitimate campaign donations,” according to the court documents.

“It is hard to fathom this kind of activity on a scale as massive as these court documents allege,” Gottlieb said. “If Sen. Yee and his fellow defendants are convicted, they’re going to wind up in one of the biggest gun-free zones in the country, a federal prison.”
 
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at www.ccrkba.org or by email to InformationRequest@ccrkba.org.
Now, many Democrats who supported, praised and voted for the so-called Affordable Care Act, commonly called ObamaCare, which resulted in millions of Americans receiving cancellation notices from their health care insurers, many of whom were facing life-threatening illnesses, have now become worried that their actions may jeopardize their chances for reelection in November.

Nancy Pelosi, probably the most reviled Democrat in Congress, joined the ranks of Hypocrite of the Year when she is expected to receive The Margaret Sanger Award from the Planned Parenthood Federation. House Minority Leader Pelosi, who is Catholic, has always been a staunch supporter of abortion rights and Planned Parenthood, in direct opposition of the teachings of the Catholic Church. The award is named after Margaret Sanger, who championed birth control and abortion rights along with the controversial Eugenics Program in the 1930s that called for the elimination of the unfit among the Black population in America through forced sterilization. Sanger believed Eugenics could improve human genetic stock through controlled breeding and by thwarting those with “undesirable traits” — including lower intelligence, criminality, and a history of promiscuity — from reproducing. Today, in contradiction to all the laws of logic, Nancy Pelosi enjoys overwhelming support from the African-American population in her California district. My guess is that as long as they keep getting their "free stuff" they will keep voting for the Democrats. (Above paragraph quoted in part from the Daily Caller. Read more:)
The sad, sorry fact of the matter is that all of the above have taken place within just the last two weeks. If we look a little further back we will note that the Great Leader himself, Democrat Barack Hussein Obama, along with his Democrat Attorney General Eric Holder have both announced that they will only enforce the laws they believe in. And Eric Holder has relayed that message down the ladder to the attorneys general in each of the 50 states. Thanks to the Democrat Party we are now living in a lawless land. Truly, the editors of Roget's Thesaurus must add the name Democrat to the list of synonyms for the word hypocrite.

UPDATE 3-27-2014: The extent of the charges against California State Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco who is also running for California Secretary of State dramatically expanded with the release of a 137-page FBI affidavit containing the sworn testimony by FBI Special Agent Emmanuel Pascua that was unsealed today.

UPDATE 3-28-2014: Attention all African-American Democrats, how do you feel now about your favorite Democrat Nancy Pelosi accepting an award named for a woman who championed forced sterilization of Black people. Is there any possibility the modern day concept of Planned Parenthood's abortion program is an extension of Margaret Sanger's work to promote Eugenics? Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood.
Source POLITICO Pulse. PELOSI ACCEPTS MARGARET SANGER AWARD - At Planned Parenthood's annual gala last night, Nancy Pelosi received the Margaret Sanger award for her work defending abortion rights. In her acceptance speech, Pelosi slammed abortion opponents, especially criticized the "personhood" laws some of them are pushing and said the struggle for reproductive rights will continue whatever SCOTUS decides on the contraception mandate.
UPDATE 3-28-2014: In addition to the arrest yesterday of California Democrat Sen. Leland Yee, two other California Democrats have been indicted and/or convicted of felony crimes in the last two months. Sen. Rod Wright was convicted of perjury and voter fraud in January for lying about his legal residence in Los Angeles County and Sen. Ron Calderon was indicted on federal corruption charges in February.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow argued Wednesday that if there’s anything that can revive California’s Republican Party, it’s the scandal-ridden Democrats that have taken over the news cycle.
UPDATE 3-31-2014:  From Michelle Malkin's column.
  • Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin’s conviction in January on corruption charges.
  • Former Trenton Mayor Tony Mack’s February conviction on cash bribes for a downtown parking garage.
  • Former San Diego mayor and serial groper Bob Filner’s disgraceful resignation after conviction on sexual harassment-related charges.
  • Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s conviction on extortion, bribery and conspiracy charges.
  • Former Birmingham, Ala., Mayor Larry Langford’s corruption and bribery conviction.
  • Illinois state Democratic House Rep. Keith Farnham, child porn probe suspect: After sponsoring two bills to increase penalties for child porn possession, Farnham was the subject of state and federal raids last week on his home … for possession of child porn. 
  • New York state Democratic Assemblyman Bill Scarborough, shady jet-setter: The FBI and state authorities raided his home and offices as part of a probe into his travel voucher practices.
  • California state Democratic Sen. Roderick Wright, lying liar: Also on paid leave, the entrenched Los Angeles-area politician is now fighting his January conviction on felony perjury, false declaration of candidacy and fraudulent voting charges.

As the historian and moralist, who was otherwise known simply as Lord Acton, wrote in 1887:
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Certainly, a party so devoid of morals, ethics and scruples deserves more scrutiny. Quoting from the NoisyRoom.net, "Ed Driscoll got it right when he said, “Think of the Democratic Party as what it really is: a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.” Indeed they are Ed and boy, have Americans made a corrupt bed to lay in." Maybe its time to take a closer look at what they are doing in the other 49 states while we still have a United States of America.

THIS Belongs on the Cover of Rolling Stone

Posted by Jeremy Richards on Mar 22, 2014

I’m usually not tremendously affected by the news.  I’ve been around for a while and I’ve seen a lot of images come across my screen.  But when I saw a photo today of a little 8 year old girl smiling bravely while standing on her new prosthetic leg, my eyes welled up when I realized it was Jane Richard, the little girl who had her leg blown off while attending the Boston Marathon about a year ago.
When I was reminded that this little angel also lost her little brother that day, I was completely overcome with emotion for her and her family.  I will not mention the name of the person responsible for committing the evil act that destroyed Jane’s childhood that day, and I will not even refer to him by any of the nicknames the media uses for him.

I will, however, mention the names of the rags that featured glamor shots of him on their covers.  Rolling Stone in August of 2013.  The New York Times on May 5, 2013.  Now, any American with any sense knows that those publications are nothing but communist propaganda, and I’ve already heard all the twisted logic and justification from every degenerate from every gutter in America, so stuff it.

Those publications gave an evil man exactly what he wanted, but what did they give to Jane Richard?  Did Rolling Stone even send her a card asking her what her favorite band is?  Did they arrange for her to meet Justin Bieber or anything?  Did the New York Times solicit donations for a scholarship fund for her?  Did they do anything except spit in her face by publishing photos of her attacker that were reminiscent of the Best of the Doors album cover?  If they did, I never heard about it, but I sure saw that terrorist’s photo just about everywhere I went for a while.

Rolling Stone, New York Times, if anyone there has any decency at all, quit working there, but before you do, use whatever power you might wield there to brighten up one of Jane Richard’s days.  I can’t imagine what kind of dreams she must have at night, but I’m sure there are some dreams she has in the day time that she could use some help with.
