Shocking: Liberal PC politics imperil US citizens

January 21, 2016

Democrats play dangerous political games with national security

As Obama vows to accept 10,000 additional Syrian refugees this year, on Wednesday Senate Democrats —- by a vote of 55 to 43 —- rejected a bill to require vetting of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, an attempt to verify they posed no security risk before entering the US.

Obama threatened to veto the bill.

The American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015 or the American SAFE Act of 2015 should have passed with overwhelming support of both parties.


Pope Francis has it exactly backwards

January 12, 2016

Muslim  “refugees” entering Europe expect acquiescence to their lifestyles, not the other way around

When Pope Francis traveled to the United States last September — after first visiting with and warmly greeting the Cuban Communist dictator Raul Castro — he used the occasion to chastise the United States on various issues, among them his fervent plea for us to accept more refugees fleeing Syria. He also urged compassion for the hordes of illegal aliens flooding through our southern border, advising that we should graciously accept them.

“Let us remember the golden rule: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,’” he directed.

Francis oddly urged Americans to reject blind adherence to ideology, be it religion or capitalism. Redistribution of wealth, a Marxist principle, is one of his frequent themes along with the disputed science of climate change. He previously blasted ‘trickle-down’ economics, a basic tenet of President Reagan’s economic policy as a “crude and naive theory,” and stated “inequality is the root of social evil.”

Monday, in his annual address to diplomats in Vatican City, Francis initially appeared to evidence a bit of a change of heart, as he warned that the recent influx of Muslim refugees risked overwhelming European values and traditions. He concluded, however, by saying he was confident the continent could successfully integrate the newcomers.

Even the pope knows integrating the newcomers will be an impossible task, (video) since Europeans, with low birth rates, are not even replacing themselves. Middle Eastern and African Muslims have large families. Moreover, Islam is not a counterpart of what we regard as our Judeo-Christian religious heritage.  It strictly dictates every aspect of life — moral, economic, political, legal, social and cultural — requiring compliance with Sharia law for its adherents. The immigrants entering Europe expect acquiesce to their lifestyles, not the other way around.

European women and girls are targeted by the male refugees. Rape in Germany has been described as reaching epidemic levels.  Sweden is now known as the rape capital of the West. Vetting those bent on terrorism is impossible.

Francis made headlines last year for taking a Melkite Greek Catholic refugee family from Damascus, Syria into Vatican City. He did not bring Muslims into his cloistered world. No further news of their whereabouts has been made available.

In February he will travel to Mexico and Juarez, on the border with Texas, to draw attention to the issue of illegal immigration, which has become a focal point of U.S. presidential campaigns. It’s a sure bet the pope is not in favor of a border wall, though he is secure in Vatican City, a virtual fortress contained behind four-foot thick stone walls which rise 39-feet high.

Yep. He’s got a border wall.


Reality comes to small Mississippi town

January 10, 2016

Heightened concerns front and center after ongoing terrorist attacks

Supplanting emotions with a healthy dose of judiciousness, Aldermen in the tiny rural town of Louise, Mississippi — with a population of about 200 — have decided to withdraw a resolution to open its doors to refugees.

By a vote of 3-1 on Wednesday, the officials reversed their original statement which said, “This town’s governing body fears no threat, but rather feels its Christian duty and obligation to divine providence which has led this great nation from its founding to contribute relief for these poor peoples’ needs.”

 In November, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant joined this growing list of governors who have stated they will continue to oppose resettling Syrian refugees in their states, despite repeated assurances from the Obama administration that the resettlement program can be trusted. The governors’ announcements followed the terrorist attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead and hundreds wounded. Other attacks have followed, including ISIS-based carnage here on American soil.

The Clarion-Ledger quotes Bryant as saying he will do “everything humanly possible to stop any plans from the Obama Administration to put Syrian refugees in Mississippi.”

 Although Obama plans to bring at least 10,000 Syrians to the United States in 2016, FBI director James Comey has told a House Committee on Homeland Security that the federal government does not have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the Syrian refugees that the president says will be allowed to enter the U.S.

“If someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database,” Comey said, “we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record of them.”


Philly Mayor’s bizarre reaction to ISIS inspired police shooter

January 9, 2016

CBS 3 Philly carries the report including the graphic photo of a gunman wearing what was described as Islamic garb brazenly attempting to assassinate a Philadelphia police officer in his squad car. The self-admitted ISIS inspired shooter has confessed to the act of depravity as the lone officer was making late night routine rounds.  

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney‘s response is mind-boggling. “There are just too many guns on the streets and I think our national government needs to do something about that,” he said.

The newly elected Democrat obviously missed the fact that the armed officer was able to save his own life and shoot his would-be murderer due to the fact that he was armed. It’s not “too many guns” that’s the problem. Gun violence is perpetrated by criminals not gun-owning, law-abiding citizens who are guaranteed their rights under the Second Amendment.

Kenney’s statement supports the skewed overreaches of Barack Obama, who announced yet another executive action earlier this week —bypassing Congress — to increase restrictions on gun owners and sales of firearms. Anyone “in the business” of selling guns also applies to a private citizen selling a firearm to his sister. Under current law, federally licensed firearms dealers are required to conduct background checks on potential firearm purchasers, but the executive action expands the definition of gun dealers.

In office less than a week, Mayor Kenney, who is assigned his own security detail, spent his first day reinstating dangerous sanctuary city policies which shelter illegal criminals from federal enforcement. Emulating Obama, Kenney signed inane executive orders, including one establishing the politically correct position of Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer — despite the astronomical rise in the violent crime rate in the Democrat run city once known as the City of Brotherly Love.

According to  this ABC 6 Action News coverage, the 2015 citywide murder and violence rate continued to skyrocket, with 692 people shot and 161 murdered by August.

Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying  the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That’s a message the voters of Philadelphia should take to heart.

So, it’s time for a bit of fun…or maybe not

January 3, 2016

Each year for the past 41 years, the wordsmiths at Lake Superior State University issue their List of Banished Words and Phrases.

The first list of words and phrases that people love to hate was compiled at a New Year’s Eve party in 1975, and published on Jan. 1, 1976.

The 2016 list of overused, incorrectly used and those that fall into the category of general uselessness can be viewed here beginning with the ubiquitous and meaningless “So” as a sentence starter. The history of Word Banishment is also entertaining.

We have added the following few and our astute readers are welcome to join in with their own selections of annoying words and phrases. Have some fun….it’s the weekend.

  1. WENT MISSING: Oddly used in news reports to describe someone who has disappeared. FELL ILL is similarly strange.
  2. AWESOME AND AMAZING: Teens with limited vocabularies inappropriately overuse these words. But when mature adults declare their kids or grandkids fall into the realm of “amazing,” or their truck is “awesome,“ we suggest finding new acquaintances.
  3. REALTOR®: This is the correct spelling of the trademarked word.  It does not have an “I” between the “L” and “T.”
  4. AT THE END OF THE DAY: Unless you’re in the cast of Les Misérables, steer clear of this cliché. Besides, it belongs to Karl Rove.
  5. MYSELF: Maeve Maddox the “American English Doctor” gives some outstanding advice regarding the misuse of personal pronouns in this section “Myself is Not the same as Me or I.”

Tomorrow we return to the hard news. Barack Obama has just returned from his lengthy annual Christmas Hawaiian vacation and is prepared to move aggressively — bypassing Congress —  to increase federal controls over American gun owners, restricting our Second Amendment Rights. His ultimate intent appears to be disarming and leaving us vulnerable in these most perilous of times.


2016: The most important election of our lifetimes

January 1, 2016

Gird your loins! We’ve got work to do!

This New Year brings with it both opportunity and obligation.

Barack Obama, who has worked double-time* to weaken our nation and circumvent the U.S. Constitution that ensures our freedoms, will be termed out and a new — hopefully conservative Republican president — will be elected.

It’s our duty as responsible citizens to do all we can to inform ourselves about the issues and work to get out the vote this time as we never have before.  Apathy will enable the untrustworthy Hillary to return to the White House — this time calling the shots and making key appointments. Of vital importance are the Supreme Court vacancies that will occur as justices in their 80‘s leave the bench. The 2016 election will place in office a person with the potential to change the face of SCOTUS for decades to come.

Conservatives are justifiably disheartened by the collusive actions of House Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP majority, who surrendered to Congressional Democrats on the $1.8 trillion tax and spending Omnibus Appropriations Act —- giving them all the bloat they and Obama desired.

We’ve seen what happens when our presidential choices are limited to unreliable, establishment squish candidates such as Mitt Romney, John McCain or Bob Dole. As GOP posers, U.S. House “leaders” John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and their ilk have clearly demonstrated that it’s not only Democrats who are betraying us.

These are perilous times. As global atrocities committed in the name of Islam are given short shrift, we witness Barack Obama calling ISIS a “contained JV team;” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exposed as deceiving us about the carnage in Benghazi; and current Secretary of State John Kerry capitulating Neville Chamberlain-like, on guaranteeing a nuclear capable Iran.

We’ve got our work cut out for us.

Dems push HR 569: Death knell for 1st Amendment

December 27, 2015

Liberal lemmings leap at ending any and all discourse and education regarding the global threat posed by Islamic jihadists

The Gatestone Institute, an international policy council chaired by Ambassador John R. Bolton, and listing Phoenix physician M. Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. as a member of its Board of Advisers, has this quote at the top of its web page.

“Let us tenderly and kindly cherish, therefore, the means of knowledge. Let us dare to read, think, speak, and write.”

—John Adams

In this Dec. 26 post, Jihad: “All the Fault of the West!” historian and journalist Lars Hedegaard who serves as President of the Danish Free Press Society, delivers some stunning news, beginning his analysis with these words:

As long as we in the West are not prepared to take Muslims at their word when they claim to be waging bloody jihad because it is their religious obligation, we have no chance of repelling the current onslaught on the West.

In the United States, a House of Representatives bill, H. Res. 569, has been sponsored that would censor one of the few countries left with freedom of speech. The bill, in accordance with the 10-year plan of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), would criminalize all criticism of Islam, worldwide.

A group in the U.S. House of Representatives has sponsored H. Res. 569, in condemnation of violence, bigotry and “hateful rhetoric” toward Muslims in the U.S.  It has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

This bill comes on the heels of Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s post-San Bernardino outrageous statement to the Muslim American community that she will prosecute anyone guilty of anti-Muslim speech. Passage of this legislation will be the death knell for the First Amendment and the end of any and all discourse and education about the threat posed by the global jihad.

The treacherous House Resolution was sponsored by U.S. Rep. Donald S. Beyer, Jr., a Virginia Democrat. It was introduced Dec. 17, 2015. Read the complete text of the Resolution and the list of left-wing co-sponsors.

Arizona Democrat Reps. Raul Grijalva (CD 3) and Ruben Gallego (CD 7) have shamefully signed on to this repressive lunacy which, if passed, signals not only the restriction, but the utter and complete death of the First Amendment.

Heritage Foundation reminds us that the oath of office taken by all members of Congress at the beginning of each term of office obligates them to observe the limits of their authority and act in accordance with the powers delegated to them by the Constitution.

These Democrats obviously think they are above such mundane restrictions.
