McConnell crushes Tea Party challenge

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/senate-races/206715-mcconnell-crushes-his-tea-party-challenger

“Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout; 
But there is no joy in Mudville . . .”

Paul Revere Soapbox

America has apparently decided that obeying the Constitution is “extremist” and they would rather take the non-extremist position that America should officially become a Fascist Police State.

Take a look at recent headlines:

  • Obama seizes N.M. land
  • The federal government can prevent American farmers from participating in the free market
  • White House ‘picking up the pace’ on executive actions
  • Federal ‘Biosurveillance’ Plan Seeking Direct Access to Americans’ Private Medical Records
  • New Technology Could Allow Government To ‘Turn Off’ Your Gun
  • Michelle Obama tells students to monitor family members for ‘racial insensitivity’
  • This Veterans Hospital Death Panel Is a Preview of Life Under Obamacare
  • Obama on Benghazi: ‘It’s Not Serious’
  • Judicial Watch’s IRS Investigation Leads Directly to Washington
  • Obama VA Scandal: Racehorse California Chrome Gets Faster Health Care Ruling Than Our Veterans Left to Die
  • The Part of the Obama Administration That’s Supposed to Help U.S. Workers Is Calling for More Foreign Labor

The American voters, in their “infinite wisdom” have decided that the events chronicled above are to become the “new American norm”. Our president has become a dictator, and he wields unlimited and unchecked power to force his dictates on Americans through the Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management, the Justice Department, and the number of federal “SWAT Teams” that are growing exponentially.

Will Rogers once said, “It’s a good thing the American people aren’t getting all the government they’re paying for.” Well, TODAY THEY ARE GETTING IT – AND THEY HAVE VOTED FOR IT !!!!

Just about the same

Russian prime minister warns Obama is bringing the world to the brink of ‘a second Cold War that nobody needs’

  • Dimitry Medvedev blasted Obama for not ‘know[ing] how to make reserved, careful, subtle, wise and intelligent decisions’
  • A more ‘competent politician,’ he said, wouldn’t have slapped Russia with economic sanctions after it marched across the Ukraine border
  • ‘We probably could cause some unpleasantries for the country that imposes those sanctions,’ he hinted in a moment ripe for The Sopranos

New Technology Could Allow Government To ‘Turn Off’ Your Gun

http://www.offthegridnews.com/2014/05/20/new-technology-could-allow-government-to-turn-off-your-gun/

“Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.” – Sheriff David Clarke Jr.

Guns 2 enemies

.

“A liberal paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed
employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free education, free
food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only law
enforcement has guns. And believe it or not, such a place does,
indeed, exist: It’s called prison.”
–  Sheriff Joe Arpaio

” . . . Whereas Senator McCain has amassed a long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats, such as Amnesty, funding for ObamaCare, the debt ceiling, assaults on the Constitution and 2nd amendment, and has continued to support liberal nominees . . .

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Maricopa County Republican leadership censures Senator McCain for his continued disservice to our State and Nation, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that until he consistently champions our Party’s Platform and values, we, the Republican leadership in Arizona will no longer support, campaign for or endorse John McCain as our U.S. Senator.”

Remember Folks, “Quantitative Easing” is the digital equivalent of printing money with NOTHING TO BACK IT UP! This is what causes inflation. When the German Weimar Republic (end of WW-1 until Hitler came to power in 1933) did this it caused “HYPER-INFLATION”. Remember hearing stories about people taking a “wheelbarrow load of cash” to the store to buy a loaf of bread? Those stories are TRUE and happened in the Weimar Republic! IT WILL HAPPEN HERE !
