Enough Already!

The Senate hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh could not have developed any other way. They now stand for all that has gone haywire in these United States. 

You really can’t make this stuff up, except of course that is exactly what is happening! A letter is sent to Senator Feinstein’s office in late July. The Senator must have lost it and thankfully found same just days before the Senate was due to vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Praise the Lord! Thank goodness this letter was found. What would have happened if the United States Senate had voted to put a would be rapist on the SCOTUS? And since this accusation was allowed to surface, what have we witnessed? Delay, prevarication, and character assassination. The talking heads in the media are having a field day. Here is the thing. The best I can tell, Judge Kavanaugh is guilty of one crime; he is a white, Christian male. 

I don’t know the Judge, but I know plenty people who do. So I am going to take a leap here and talk about a man I don’t know. One, two, three, jump! This guy is a good man, and what is happening to him is shameful. The progressive left if off to the races. This woman must be telling the truth. While she cannot remember much of anything from this night many decades ago, what she does seem to recall is that it was definitely Judge Kavanaugh pawing her. Funny that no one else seems to recollect the event. 

The whole thing stinks. And our society has moved so far toward blaming the white Christian male for all sins of the past that Judge Kavanaugh is now presumed guilty by more Americans than not. (Click here to read a current USA Today article.) I know I will offend some of my readers. Sorry. But this entire charade is the culmination of years of assault on tradition in the United States. He went to a boy’s school. Guilty! He played sports and allegedly enjoyed a beer or two while not yet 21 years of age. Guilty! He is a white guy. Guilty! He is Christian. Guilty! He went to great schools. Guilty! He did extremely well in everything he has ever done. Guilty! His credentials are impeccable. Guilty! He believes in the integrity of the Constitution. Guilty! He does not think judges are on the bench to make law. Guilty! He is committed to our three branches of government, and the role of the Judiciary to keep the Executive and Legislative branches in check and on track with the law as guided by the Constitution. Guilty!

Do you get my drift? Am I being to obtuse? Sorry. Here’s the thing. What I have written needs to be said. We live in a country where history is being eliminated and rewritten every day. I am calling out this national disgrace. For that, label me guilty! Enough Already!

 

Wake Up Call!

Obamacare, Wake Up Call! | Opine NeedlesHello America, is anyone home? If you happened to somehow miss this week, you missed a doozy.

On Monday, the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) rendered a mixed decision regarding Arizona’s immigration law. Whilst validating federal sovereignty on the fundamental question of whether Federal law usurps state law on this vexing issue, SCOTUS did uphold Arizona’s right to question the citizenship of those who their law enforcement officials have reason to believe may not be in the United States legally. Federal law stipulates that the US government is supposed to work with state law enforcement officers to enforce this portion of our immigration law. In a sign of total contempt for due process and the law, the Obama administration immediately pulled all support (program 278G) that it had previously given to Arizona. Let’s make sure we are all on the same page. The Federal Government has an OBLIGATION to enforce our laws! This is wanton lawlessness. It is the stuff of emperors and dictators. There should be more OUTRAGE!

On Thursday, we had the double-barreled Obamacare verdict followed by the Contempt of Congress vote against Attorney General Eric Holder. Those blasts are much stronger than grandfather’s 12 gauge. The validation of Obamacare is an abomination. There are more reasons than I care to recite; anyway if you are reading this blog, you know most of them. Here is the bottom line. Chief Justice Roberts committed the cardinal sin. He made law! SCOTUS’s job is to interpret Constitutional applicability (or lack thereof) in relation to the particular legal question at hand. Justice Roberts decided that no matter how many times the President told the American people the personal mandate was NOT a tax (it is a penalty—yea right) the only way the mandate could be deemed constitutional was to declare the penalty a tax! So Justice Roberts exposed the President’s lie by turning the penalty into a tax; thus making the law constitutional, as taxation (most, but not all would argue) is Congress’s domain. Suffice to say, if the progressive left continues to attack Justice Roberts as a puppet of the far right (which of course he has never been-nor should be!) the irony will be rich.

Then the House of Representatives did the only thing it could do. It held the Attorney General in Contempt of Congress. The AG did nothing but stonewall and prevaricate under oath. He would not turn over the subpoenaed documents. He behaved contemptuously, and now he is officially in contempt!

So what does this all mean? One must hope and pray it means this; anyone, and I mean anyone, who:

  • Cares about our dire fiscal straights,
  • Believes that we are an exceptional country full of people who do exceptional things,
  • Aspires for his or her children and grandchildren to have careers and lives full of hope, and
  • Knows that our best days can still lie ahead of us,

needs to do whatever he or she can to get as many people as possible to vote Republican in November. Mitt Romney is the candidate to support, as is every Republican candidate for Congress.

Folks, the only way we’ll be looking at Obamacare in a rear view mirror is to repeal it. The Supreme Court has ensured that repeal is our only option.

  • The only way we stand a chance of stemming the tide of profligate spending is to vote Republican.
  • The only way we stand a chance of maintaining (and growing) a viable manufacturing base is to give our entrepreneurs and capital providers the incentive and confidence they so desperately need to invest.

We’ve said it before and we’re saying it again. This president and his administration are the most arrogant, dictatorial clan to ever inhabit the White House and cabinet level offices. They simply ignore whatever does not fit into their redistributionist agendas. They will not enforce laws that do not suit them. They think and act as though they are above the law. They are clearly on a mission. The question is, will enough Americans figure it out before November?

We are at the tipping point. There is no turning back.
