Of course, most of them at least go for the subtle lie. They shift the truth just a little bit, or use words that you might construe in two different ways. Sometimes they just lie about stuff too obtuse for anybody to check out.Details
The logic behind this article is that since Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli lost an extremely close Virginia governor’s race, the 10th Amendment is dead. This is mainly because Cuccinelli showed opposition to ObamaCare and sympathy toward it being nullified. He also said some words about charity not being the function of government. Therefore, Tenthers are evil and over.Details
Jesse Jackson is either lying about, or is completely ignorant on, the topic of state’s rights and nullification. If he wasn’t so ignorant, he would know that nullification’s roots come from acting against the Alien and Sedition Acts, not from protecting racists and slaveholders.Details
Republicans are the party of limited government, right? Not if you’re Governor Chris Christie, or, according to the governor’s remarks, many other Republican governors.Details
Feinstein is the very powerful chair of senate intelligence committee. ANY bill limiting NSA powers is almost certain to go through her committee.Details
Perhaps if he hadn’t continually stalled his bill to ban the Obamacare Medicaid expansion in Tennessee Brian Kelsey’s message to Sebelius might have carried a little more weightDetails
I thought it might be fun to evaluate an old Heritage Foundation article about nullification in the context of this hierarchy. In this article, Dr. Matthew Spalding, from Heritage, tells us why he believes that the Idaho legislature was correct in 2011 when it rejected legislation which would have nullified Obamacare. If you haven’t read it, please go read Rejecting Nullification: Idaho Draws the Constitutional Line for context.Details
For about two weeks, the focus of much of the media’s attention has been the partial shutdown of the federal government. If one needs to rehash how the shutdown came about or is unfamiliar with names such as Cruz, Reid, Boehner or Obama and how they all played a role, one likely won’t care to learn about it now as the shutdown comes to a close. Much of the Republican establishment has caved, fully funding not only ObamaCare, but continued drone wars overseas and domestic spying. Our regularly scheduled tyranny resumes. We have learned, in fact, that in the slowing of the encroachment of government upon more and more of our lives, there are things a great deal stronger than the Republicans’ resolve.
90 year old veterans
When barricades were erected to block World War II veterans’ access to open air memorials, the generation that pierced the Siegfried Line of Nazi Germany had no issue with breaking through the “Barry-cades” that were supposed to impede their attempts at remembering their departed brethren. People then carried the remains of the Obama Wall to the White House.
While the Democrats have the donkey, and the Republicans have the elephant, may I humbly suggest the bison as the symbol of the Tenther movement. Nearly hunted to extinction, just like our precious liberties, they have been making a gradual comeback over the last few decades. This particular bison apparently did not take kindly to the Barry-cade that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. But did the bison start screaming to throw the bums out, start an email campaign to its congressman or go to court? You have to watch to get your answer.Details
