Denial of Truth

immigration

I’m listening to Sean Hannity interview Marco Rubio about the immigration bill. Everyone involved with the immigration bill is missing the key point: implementation and oversight.

Sure, Marco Rubio is a smart guy, but he’s not going to be administering or being held accountable for the implementation. What happens when the “smart guys” in the room aren’t around when some key aspect of the bill is ignored, either willfully or mistakenly.

They have to take into consideration the bureaucratic pitfalls in fashioning their bill. If not, we’re going to be left with another monstrosity that no one can implement or even follow.

This current immigration bill is a bad idea!

Gene’s Nickle: Sovereignty II

4 February, 2013
Like every coin worth having, individual sovereignty has a second side.
John Locke taught that:

The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of Nature for his rule.”

Reason and logic show, if natural liberty means being free from a ruler or government, then liberty requires a fundamental responsibility of the individual to secure and provide for himself. I would go this far, the less responsibility one takes for his life and its direction and the more one relies on government for personal safety, success, and happiness, the less liberty that man actually has.

Gene’s Nickle: Fair Share

Friends and Family,

The latest catch-phrase that is getting misused and abused is “fair share.”  Your friendly Thesaurus lists the first definition of “fair” as: impartial and unprejudiced.  Then it lists 47 synonyms including:  aboveboard, equal, equitable, honest, impartial and unbiased.

If a citizen is gullible and listens to the reports of their local news sources from the president and leaders in congress, then they are probably convinced that “fair share” only pertains to Americans who have a considerable degree of wealth.  Somehow, the responsibility of an equitable portion of our federal tax burden does not apply to folks in the lower tax brackets.  That doesn’t seem fair!

Attack on Allen West

I saw this and had to post it. Not because I want to give it publicity, but because I want you to see the tactics of the Obama-inspired left. This ad is beyond the pale. In fact, Allen West has responded to it in no uncertain terms:

I spent my life in uniform fighting for our great nation and protecting all Americans. The ad being run against me by my opponent’s family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible. It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation. This ad reflects the sad state of politics in our Republic with those who seek to destroy a person’s character to cover for their lack of intellectual ability and integrity.

Brace yourself for the video:

Andrew Breitbart believed that we were in a cultural battle for the soul of our country. He was right!

Hat Tip: Hot Air

Ted Cruz Wins!

The AP has already called it and I’ve been celebrating the fact that Ted Cruz has won the run-off election for the GOP Senate race in Texas, but back to blogging.

Here are the results thus far, at 9:15pm CT:

It looks like the latest PPP poll was correct. Ted Cruz seems to have pulled off a 10 point victory. Notice the fact that Ted Cruz held a 5% margin during early voting, but extended that to 10% in the final results. That means that all the negative ads that Texas had to endure from Dewhurst since early voting ended didn’t amount to diddly squat! If anything, it hurt him!

I should add that this is a HUGE victory for the Tea Party!

Andrew McCarthy Proposes a Party Other Than the GOP

(Updated and bumped)

Andrew McCarthy is a former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. A Republican, he is most notable for leading the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others. The defendants were convicted of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and planning a series of attacks against New York City landmarks. He also contributed to the prosecutions of terrorists who bombed US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. He resigned from the Justice Department in 2003. He is currently a columnist for National Review.

Having said that, Andrew McCarthy is a pretty smart guy. Tonight, he appeared on the Mark Levin Show. His comments were remarkable in that it’s the first time that I’ve heard a prominent, conservative writer suggest that the GOP may need to be abandoned for another party. He made his comments in conjunction with John McCain’s recent denunciation of Michelle Bachmann on the Senate floor. Bachmann and several other Congressional Republicans had dared to question the potential influence of Huma Abedin on the State Department’s foreign policy. Michelle Bachmann’s questions are fact-based, McCain’s are not. Huma Abedin is mentioned in Bachmann’s letter to the Deputy Inspector General of the Department of State:

The Departments Deputy, Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, has three family members – her late father, her mother and her brother – connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and /or organizations. Her position affords her routine access to the Secretary and to policy making…

You can read Andrew McCarthy’s excellent background piece in a recent article on PJMedia.com:

I’ll post the audio of The Mark Levin Show here as soon as it’s available. In the meantime, here’s another good article written by Jeffrey Lord, on The American Spectator:

Is Huma Abedin the New Alger Hiss?
