I’ve read several articles today as related to Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and its applications. Interestingly, the history of this act is rooted in Native American religious practices and the protections of same. Numerous groups (liberal, conservative, evangelical, Christian, Jewish) came together in support of protecting religious rights from government intrusions and the act passed (virtually unanimously), being signed into law by Clinton.
For all the Americans celebrating Bastille Day today, you desperately need to perform some due diligence and learn about the history of this despicable day. For one, how many of those celebrating Bastille Day know the base reason, which drove that French mob to storm the Bastille in the first place?
As Americans inch ever closer to November and the single most important presidential election quite possibly since Abraham Lincoln – one which shall once again (hopefully) right this nation’s ship in so very many ways – Barack Hussein Obama has of late begun spinning his yarn, attempting to smear the man who appears to be the Republican Party’s viable candidate. So blind to Obama’s ways are his minions – these lemmings to include the “main-stream-media” – that these unfortunate folks continue their refusal to vet their anointed one.
Since inauguration day January 20th, 2009 – when the appalling efforts of this nation’s liberal media succeeded in handing the presidency over to the most anti-American, Constitution-despising elected official in history – Conservative-voting Americans have awakened to numerous cold, hard facts. George H.W. Bush marked the end of Conservatism’s ascendency via a disastrous term riddled with tax increases – counter to now-infamous campaign promises – as well as deals with the Soviets that reversed decades of gains by Reagan. These disasters, among others, led to two terms of progressive liberalism, massive spending, and runaway entitlements.
Arguably THE most progressive Republican prior to the arrival of George W Bush, President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 vetoed a plan laid out by then-Civil Governor to the Philippines, William H Taft. Having recently acquired the Philippines via The Treaty of Paris at the conclusion of the Spanish-American War, Taft was appointed to his position towards the effective establishing of a Filipino-led, independent, self-governing Philippines. Taft’s plan, subsequently vetoed, called for the reinstating of the Spanish opium monopoly, a plan that would have established Congress essentially as opium merchants. Taft would have seen the American government collecting revenue via the marketing of opium to the merchants of the barbiturate, similarly as had the Spanish colonial government, had Roosevelt not intervened.
Conservative talk-radio here in north Texas this morning aired a story introducing Representative Sam Johnson of Texas’s 3rd congressional district. This week marking the anniversary of various national as well as international milestones—first shots of the Civil War, first human in orbit, for example—Rep. Johnson also has a milestone worthy of remembrance. This week marks the 45th anniversary of Johnson’s shoot down over North Vietnam, which began 2500 days in captivity for him, most of which he spent in solitary confinement. This week-end, on April 17th, Representative Sam Johnson will launch the Congressional Veteran Commendation (CVC) program to honor fellow military personnel from his district here in Texas at an inspirational service to be held at Canyon Creek Baptist Church in Richardson. His service and devotion to country, state and citizenry are greatly appreciated.
The political as well as economic environment today is far removed from the days of previous shut-downs. In the mid-90s, the rare similarities to today were a Democrat in office dueling with Conservatives in Congress on the heels of liberal spending and failure to produce government budgets. What has changed is the birth of the Tea Party, a citizenry highly disgruntled with the man in the Oval Office (to include his own constituency), and a deficit as well as national debt unmatched in the history of the country.
This note was born from my rebuttal to a former facebook connection’s lambasting of Governor Palin wherein he (and several of his “friends”) critiqued a POLITICO article — favorably — which targeted Palin as “…a problem, a disease for the Conservative movement…”
Conservative principles, with respects to how a politician speaks, are best summed up by the actions and words of the most recent modern father of Conservatism, Ronald Reagan. Reagan taught us, through word as well as deed, that Republicans live by the 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of anyone in the GOP. He took that creed to heart when campaigning against Ford, a gentleman’s pledge not reciprocated by president-Ford-to-be.
In a continuation of a story that aired in these pages back in June of 2010 readers are reminded that Obama enacted constitutionally unsupportable as well as downright appalling and autarchic measures last year in a desperate move to shore up votes not only for his 2012 campaign but likewise to bolster support for the progressive Congressional elections in the November 2010 races.
“There’s no argument over the choice between peace and war. But there’s only one guaranteed way you can have peace; and you can have it in the next second: surrender. Admittedly there’s a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson that history tells us [proves] that the greater risk lies in appeasement. And this is the specter our well-meaning Liberal friends refuse to face: that their policy of accommodation is appeasement; and it gives no choice between peace and war. [Would you] rather live on your knees than die on your feet?”
Winston Churchill, Nobel Prize winning British Prime Minister, World War II heroic strategist, honorary United States citizen as well as unabashed hero, friend and staunch ally to Israel, Judaism and the Jewish race astutely wrote of fundamentalist Islam and Muslims:
Secular-Socialist Health Care as passed by the Obama administration is the single most anti-American, anti-Constitutional (and therefore illegal) piece of legislation passed by the current administration and one of the most ruinous pieces of its kind ever placed upon the citizenry of the United States in our history.
138 Congressional Republicans voted, December 16, 2010 to pass the disastrous “New Tax Deal”; a deal with Obama and his team of progressives that will add $858 Billion in additional debt to the national deficit. There are no plusses so positive as to outweigh the multitude of negatives populating this Bill; a Bill now signed, sealed and delivered, having made its way onto Barack’s desk for approval. No amount of temporary extensions of Bush era tax relief efforts (for all brackets) should be considered worthy of the economy eviscerating spending this Bill allows; spending tacked on to this “Deal” by Obama and Co. as they held the nation hostage in the name of “compromise”.
