Framing the Dialogue

Update – Sé Questor

Barely a month ago the Obama Administration minions were all over the media predicting gloom, despair, and agony forthcoming from Obama’s plan (YES IT WAS HIS IDEA AND HE SIGNED IT INTO LAW IN 2011) for sequester as I pointed out in my original post available here.

Rather than trying to detail the obvious lies perpetrated by Obama regarding the reductions in the rate of growth (NO THEY ARE NOT ACTUAL SPENDING CUTS…THE FEDS JUST DON’T GET AS MUCH OF AN INCREASE IN SPENDING…I feel like I am screaming) there are two videos worth watching. The first is an exchange between Fox News’ Ed Henry and Obama’s Bagdad Bob, Jay Carney…

Charles In Charge

Nearly three and a half years ago I dubbed Charles Krauthammer a True American Hero.  Most of the folks to whom I have given this honor have lived up to the title, alas some have not, but Charles Krauthammer remains one of my favorites.  I look forward to Fox News’ Brett Baier and his all-star panel and especially Mr. Krauthammer’s commentary.  His words are especially delicious when he follows the liberal “newsperson” usually seated to his right and soundly refutes their assertion.

Shall Not Be Infringed

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

About a year ago there was a tragedy near where I live.  A mentally disturbed man started shooting at the psychiatric hospital killing a young man.  The tragedy hit home even more when it was discovered that his sister had also been murdered a year earlier.  She was also shot.  The family recently held an event to raise money “to prevent gun violence.”  That is understandable, but I couldn’t help but wonder why just “gun violence?”  Why not all violence?  Why not try to stamp out violent people?  Why not try to have psychotics taken off of the streets?  It may sound trite, but guns don’t kill people…people kill people.  Do you doubt that a murderer will no longer murder if they cannot get a pistol?

Some Kraut on That Dog?

FYI the Kraut is Charles Krauthammer and the Dog is Obama.  This is in no way an allusion to the fact that Obama frequently ate dog meat growing up in Indonesia.  Here is a series of some of Krauthammer’s recent great videos.  Enjoy them as I have!

 

Lawless

As I sit in my house and earlier at work I am struck at how the world turns and turns as our country fades and fades.  If you read this blog you know that I don’t like the policies of Obama, Democrats, liberals, and progressives.  Their positions only make sense if the goal is the end of American as it was founded and prospered these last few centuries.  The latest bile to spew from the White House were two, in my opinion, huge decisions by our “Banana Republic” chief executive – B. Hussein Obama.

Executive Power

The framers wrote the Constitution to provide for a separation of powers, or three separate branches of government. Each has its own responsibilities and at the same time they work together to make the country run smoothly and to assure that the rights of citizens are not ignored or disallowed. This is done through checks and balances. A branch may use its powers to check the powers of the other two in order to maintain a balance of power among the three branches of government. The three branches of the U.S. Government are: Legislative, Executive, Judicial

Fox Bites Man

There is an old Jamaican proverb,

“no call alligator long mouth before you pass him by”

Essentially you should wait until you are a safe distance away before you call out a dangerous animal.  Three months ago I wrote Fox Hunt after George Soros funded Media Matters announced that they were going after Fox News.  Perhaps George Soros believed that his David would heroically slay the Fox News Goliath.  This Goliath has been fighting back and most recently has begun actively questioning why Media Matters still enjoys non-profit status when they are blatantly participating in political activities.  We know that only the NAACP is allowed to participate in political activities and still maintain their non-profit status.  The Politico reported that,

Lone Wolf

Consider this headline:

Frankfurt Shooting Suspect Likely a ‘Lone Wolf’

The “alleged shooter, Arid Uka, is described as a “a 21-year-old ethnic Albanian whose family moved to Germany from Kosovo,(and) had an “Islamist” motivation for firing at U.S. Air Force personnel.”  I may have my history wrong, but President William Jefferson Clinton got us involved in Kosovo on the side of the Muslims.  Once control was wrested from the government (I know that Milosovic was a “bad” guy) the Christian churches started burning down and atrocities committed against those not practicing the Muslim religion.  At some point, perhaps, authorities will put the puzzle pieces together that, perhaps, a preponderance of evidence, perhaps, exists that since there are so many Muslim “lone wolves” out there that, perhaps, they should no longer be considered lone wolves even though there is not a paper trail linking the wolves. 

TSA TNA

“Don’t touch my junk” has become as famous as “don’t tase me man” in the American culture as the Transportation Security Administration increased the level of “scrutiny” at airport just prior to the busiest travel weekend of the year.  The words of interrupted traveler John Tyner went viral as a symbol of the frustration many people feel with the new screening at airports.  Mr. Tyner decided not to travel rather than be subjected to an intrusive body search.  As usual Charles Krauthammer perhaps had the best take on the story in a recent column;

Czar (zar)

Czar us defined as:

“One having great power or authority.”

Synonyms:  autocrat, despot, leader, ruler

Can you use it in a sentance?

“So in effect we have NON-ELECTED officials, who are backed by The White House, who are given the tools and resources to do the bidding of the President and they are accountable to NO ONE! These czar’s don’t have to undergo Senate Confirmation Hearings, they just get appointed.”

What does Charles Krauthammer think?

“More czars than you find at a Romanov wedding.  What I don’t understand is why you want to call anybody a “czar.” The czars had a sorry history of success and achievement.”
