Mr. President, You Just Don’t Get it!

Hillary and ObamaMr. President, if you want to search for reasons explaining the rise of Donald Trump, search no longer. You, sir, are the reason, and Hillary is hell bent on making sure the reason lives on! Events of the past few days provide a perfect illustration of how we find ourselves in this absolutely bizarre situation.

We find ourselves once again in the  familiar position where hands are wrung and souls are searched after the brutal attack on innocent civilians pursuing their individual rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. While both Republicans and Democrats decry one another for politicizing a horrible nightmare, the fact of the matter is that it is impossible to separate politics from the terror that took place in Florida. 

Once again, the Democrats wasted no time blaming guns on the calculated murder and wounding of over 100 American citizens. Republicans just as quickly pounced on the fact that guns don’t actually kill people; people kill people. All one has to do is look at Chicago as a case in point for the complete and utter failure of strict gun control laws in stopping criminals from using guns. Once and for all, we need to move past the rhetoric and acknowledge that taking guns away from law abiding citizens will never (ever) stop criminals from using guns!

But the whole gun control debate is a red herring. The issue at hand, folks, remains one that has been the case for years. We are in an undeclared war with radical Islam: an idea used by proponents of envy and hate who wish to kill everyone of us; full stop. To date, the Obama Administration (including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton) has refused to acknowledge the enemy. Instead, they have referred to “terror” as the enemy. No, Mr. President, terror is the method; ISIL, ISIS, Al Qaeda, (the list goes on) are the instruments; But radical Islam is the enemy!

Today, the President, in as mocking and haughty a tone as imaginable, attacked his “friends on the other side of the aisle” and Mr. Trump as being simplistic morons who clearly do not grasp the complexities of modern statesmanship. You can hear (and read) for yourself how Mr. Obama addressed the nation by clicking here. The President brushed aside years of criticism regarding his unwillingness to call the enemy what it actually is by saying “There is no magic to the phrase ‘radical Islam’. It is a political talking point.” Well, there you have it. No Mr. President, it is not a “political talking point.” It is an ugly, malformed, abomination of a religion whose followers live solely to destroy all who do not bend to their will. We are at war with this thing called radical Islam and all who subscribe to its sick doctrine. You Mr. President, (and yes, you, Mrs. Clinton) even today refuse to acknowledge the enemy. It is nauseating.

The President and Mrs. Clinton say Donald Trump is fueling the flames of terror’s fires with his anti-Muslim rhetoric. You know what? They may be right. But what they don’t understand is that their tepid, politically correct, milquetoast, (dare I even say mamby pamby?) refusal to name the enemy is the very cause for the rise of Donald Trump! Oh, the bitter taste of irony’s pill! Donald Trump would not be the presumptive nominee if millions of Americans were not pissed off. Sorry, there is no other way to say it. 

So there we have it. The President and Mrs. Clinton are appalled at the behavior of their political love child. Perhaps if they would stand up and start telling it like it is, their creation would disappear into one of his many towers. But don’t count on it. Neither the President nor Mrs. Clinton  have a clue. And thus we will see this American tragedy continue to play itself out.

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.
