When we look back at the atrocities committed by Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Mussolini, we say, “That will never happen here.” We turn a blind eye and choose not to see the parallel between then and what is happening in our nation now through our “foreign to America’s Constitution” leader in the White House, a leader the American people tolerate.
When the news is so often bad, we could all use a laugh. Let's laugh about the news a little...
Last year, California’s governor signed into law Assembly Bill 1266, which directs that in our public schools gender is something students choose, rather than something they are born with. If a student with male genitalia self-identifies as a female, he/she is allowed to choose to use the girls’ bathrooms and showers. The upshot of this law is to respect the feelings of those who are conflicted with their own gender identity at the expense of the privacy rights of the majority.
Good post at Hot Air regarding Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's lukewarm appearance at CPAC today. Ignoring for a moment that CPAC never should have invited this scheister in the first place, Hot Air has the whole story and the appropriate response to the headline "Mitch McConnell at CPAC: If you give me a Republican majority in the Senate, I won’t let you down".
7 Senate Democrats had the good sense to dodge a political attack ad nightmare when Debo Adegbile was defeated to be the next Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division. What is remarkable is that only 7 Democrats voted no. Too bad for Harry Reid he can’t count to 50.
Whether you live in Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan or Mississippi, as election time nears, we should NOT be looking to elect more phonies who will promise us things that they will do for us. What we should demand to know of all future candidates is what they will undo for us. We should ask: What pretended legislation will you repeal? What lawless officials will you impeach? What burdensome and oppressive regulations will you erase?
When the Communist empire collapsed after almost 80 years of enforced socialist life, leaving the Ukranians (among others) to fend for themselves…they didn’t know what to do! Americans, on the other hand, are just beginning down that path. Liberals and gun-grabbers still parrot the Party line that it’s “for the children” and to make us all safer. But they have no answer to the question, “What will keep us safe from the government?”
Today's Quote of the Day comes to us from the LA Times, reporting on Senator Ted Cruz's recent speech at CPAC. In his speech, Cruz tells Republicans (as if they didn't have this one down pat) how to lose elections.
Here’s a bright idea. When the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues a new regulation requiring retrofitting or that some new technology be used by energy providers, perhaps they should double-check to see if the technology actually exists yet.
In Texas, the lieutenant governor is almost as powerful as the governor, serving at the head of the state Senate, which requires 21 out of 31 votes to bring anything to the floor. Quite simply, if the lieutenant governor doesn’t like your bill, it is dead. National political writers miss this important point as they autopsy the meaning of the Texas Republican primary elections.
This is a very enlightening video from Wallbuilders. Can you imagine the federal government today or a Democrat president today saying this, i.e. that Nazis (National Socialists) are the enemy--the enemy of the Bible upon which the United States was founded?
South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard signed 18 bills into law, including bills updating motor carrier regulations, marriage and family counseling, repealing a contractor's excise tax, detaining parole violators, and more.
Earlier last month, the South Dakota House voted to extend taxpayer funded government health care benefits to pregnant illegal aliens. Last year, the legislature tried to do the same thing,but it got tangled up in a conference committee. The Democrat sponsor of the bill, Rep. Bernie Hunhoff, and Gov. Dennis Daugaard agreed to fund it through Medicaid appropriations. Looks like the governor is ready to pull the same fast one again.
Did those protesting Sen. Phil Jenson’s religious freedom bill think through the issue? The senator’s bill was an attempt to preempt reverse discrimination that is now happening by protecting those being forced to participate in something against their conscience, being dragged into court for not wanting to pretend that homosexuality is equal in all respects to normal, natural heterosexuality.
Knowing as he does that there are many in the world who share an animus towards the Jewish state, and having been associated all his life with anti-Israel leftists and Islamists, it is not beyond credulity that Obama will display brute force against Netanyahu – something he has assiduously refrained from doing with respect any other nation state, especially the world’s tyrants.
In June, 1976, during a visit to London, the former Israeli Prime Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, was asked what needed most to be done for her country in the field of information. Her answer was, "Tell people the basic facts about Israel and Israel's case over and over again."
On Saturday, March 8, Verne Sheppard will talk about his experiences in the Pacific and the Far East as a radio operator in the Air Transport Command from 1944-1946, and his service aboard a C-54 which took him to battle zones such as Guam, China, and Japan.
Former Rapid City Councilman, financial advisor and Republican Jeff Partridge formally announced his campaign for South Dakota district 34 House today at the Hotel Alex Johnson. Currently Rep. David Lust and Rep. Dan Dryden serve Dist. 34 in the state House, but Lust is term limited and will not be running again this year.
A question-and-answer session on our United States Constitution, how we got it, about amendments, about an Article V convention, and about the dangers of an Article V Constitutional Convention.
When we consider the rightness or wrongness of any government program – like “Obamacare” – the discussion of its “rightness” must always begin with the question of authority. Does the government have the authority to do this thing in the first place? If we ask this “authority” question first, and we determine that there is no authority for the program to exist at all, then all the evidence of its cost and its benefits is irrelevant.
While well-intentioned, all existing versions of a balanced budget amendment take the focus off the Article 1 Section 8 constitutional spending of the federal government and assume the federal government can spend taxpayer money on whatever it wants so long as the budget is balanced. This guts the protections the founders built into the U.S. Constitution.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
