Among the many reasons real Conservatives do not want Jeb Bush in the White House are these three: Common Core, immigration, and the Nazi factor. There are many other reasons but this is an alphabetical list of just three of the biggest issues that Conservatives object to most strongly.
Common Core is being opposed in numerous states. Everyone likes making money, nothing wrong with that, but Jeb Bush not only stands to make rather a lot of money from his involvement with this program, but he more than most ought to know that it is bad for America, bad for American children and is in violation of the Constitution. Either he knows and doesn’t care, or he really doesn’t know what millions of Americans now know – in either case he is not qualified to be President. We have had six years of a so-called leader who multiple times has expected us to believe that he didn’t know anything about (whatever) until he read about it in the papers. We don’t need another incompetent in power. Jeb Bush is not a Conservative, any more than his father was a Conservative, or his brother was a Conservative – they are all RINOs.
Common Core is in direct violation of the American Constitution, however I never see anything written or said about this (possibly because most people are products of the American public education system and don’t know any better). The last time I checked the Constitution was still the law of the land and the foundation of many other laws. That Common Core is applauded by the teacher’s unions ought, in itself, make Americans wary. The teacher’s unions were the first unions to get their own cabinet seat – thanks to our second worst President ever, Jimmy Carter, who created the Education Department as a reward to these unions for getting him elected in 1976. According to the 10th Amendment to the Constitution education is the responsibility of the individual and the states and NOT the federal government.
On January 2, 2013 this blog published my article “President Cantor? Or . . .”. Since then, Rep. Eric Cantor has become history thanks to his defeat at the hands of Dave Brat and with the help of a great turn-out by the good Tea Party folks of Virginia plus help from radio personality Laura Ingraham and other conservative warriors. For the sake of America and Americans when the new conservative majority elects a Speaker of the United States House of Representatives they should not even consider the re-election of John Boehner. He seems incapable of standing up for the American people and against Barack Obama, and although he has lost a lot of support in the House among fellow Republicans that is still a possibility.
The position of Speaker of the House is important because this person is second in line to become president should anything happen to both the President and Vice President. This would be a rare event indeed, but should Barack Obama be impeached or otherwise removed from office, Vice President Biden would take his place. Should both the president and the vice president be removed from office at the same time, or before Obama could name a new vice president to replace Joe Biden, the next president would be the Speaker of the House.
The last time anything remotely similar happened was in 1973 when Vice President Agnew resigned and pleaded no contest to criminal charges of tax evasion and money laundering. Rep. Gerald Ford was nominated and replaced him. Then Nixon resigned before being impeached, leaving Gerald Ford as President. At the time there was a Republican White House and Republican Senate. Beginning very soon the House and the Senate will be in the hands of the Republican Party, however it is almost certain that the president would name a Vice President from his own party.
There is a reason the administration of President Barack Obama is called a regime. The term is used consistently to describe tyrannical governments. Technically it doesn’t have to mean that, but in recent years it is the only term for an administration with these inclinations.
It is well known that the difference between Fidel and Raul Castro is that Fidel has had thousands of Cubans executed. Raul Castro on the other hand simple whips out his revolver and shoots them himself. In short, the Castro brothers are really, really bad people. Granted their predecessor Batista was no saint, but according to the UN’s 1960 Statistical Yearbook Cuba ranked as having the eighth highest wage on earth and ranked third among eleven Latin American counties for being well-fed. That was before Castro’s communist policies really took effect and Cuba has become one of the worst places in the world in every way, and that is saying something.
Cuba is only 90 miles from Florida and the list of Americans of Cuban descent in Florida and throughout America is long, varied, and illustrious. The interesting thing about it though is that nearly all of them, or their parents, left Cuba once Castro took over. It should also be pointed out that more than one million Cubans (Cuba had 11 million according to the 2012 census) of all social classes left for the United States and no doubt many, many more went elsewhere. The United States is the closest place to Cuba, and although the official language is English, learning it (as was done in the past) was preferable to going to a Spanish speaking country bogged down in poverty (as nearly all are), or a failed state such as Mexico where the drug cartels rule the country.
F-ENEMIES – that’s a newly coined word to describe female enemies and two major American F-enemies have been in the news recently, both of whom seem to have no respect for the American people or our positions. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) a.k.a. “the Louisiana Purchase” who lied, and lied, and lied to the good people of Louisiana has been in the news for losing an election. Incidentally she was named “the Louisiana Purchase”* because she only voted for Obamacare after she got a payoff, but that was a few years ago. Last Saturday she was finally been run out of office by an upset when Bill Cassidy won the runoff election and became Louisiana’s new Senator in her stead.
I call Mary Landrieu an enemy because she has been both pro-Obama and pro-abortion (so how does killing a female before she is born make you pro-woman?). She has a 100% rating from NARAL, a 0% rating from the Louisiana Right to Life Federation, yet has tried to convince the people of Louisiana that she is prolife (could that be because Louisiana is the most pro-life state in the union?). The NRA endorsed her opponent in the recent election and she has voted in favor of an Internet sales tax. In fact she has a record of voting 97% of the time in agreement with Barack Obama.
In recent months she has promoted the Keystone Pipeline (oil is very important to the state of Louisiana), but frankly that seems a little suspect. Does anyone seriously believe she would be in favor of Keystone when Obama and the Democrat Party is so firmly opposed to it?
The other low life f-enemy is Ruth Bader Ginsburg (b.1933) the 81 year old Supreme Court Justice who had minor surgery last Wednesday – a fact that has received very little attention. The surgery was to place a stent in her right coronary artery. It is well known that she had surgery for colon cancer in 1999 and that her health has not been good, none-the-less she has no plans to retire. This is very good news for the moment, as the 113th Congressional session ends December 26, 2013. It is possible that President Barack Obama would make a recess appointment, however if he does it would be short-lived – or should be, but when has he ever followed the Constitution?
For those who have not kept up with these things Judge Ginsburg was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals of the Columbia Circuit by President Jimmy Carter (that probably tells you everything). She has taken a very strong pro-abortion stand, has dissed (disrespected) the American Constitution and has been a General Counsel of the ACLU. What most people don’t remember however is that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was one of judges who threw Jonathan Pollard under the bus. Now regardless of your take on his guilt or innocence the fact is that he has served far longer than any American ever has for exactly the same charge.
The next session of Congress begins on January 3rd and the Republicans will then have control of the Senate. Appointments to the Supreme Court go through the Senate hence it seems highly probable that any appointment approved in the Senate, as long as the Republicans have control, to replace Judge Ginsburg would only go to a Conservative – with a capital C.
*At the same time Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NB) received the nickname “Cornhusker Kickback” for voting for this monstrosity in exchange for favors.
Ebola is the gift that will keep on giving, not just an October Surprise, it will continue to spread in coming months. Thanks President Obama. The only silver lining I can see in all of this is that it may finally tank the Obama Administration. Thanks to Obama’s idiocy (or is it his colossal ignorance, arrogance, or hatred of America) Ebola is now in the heart of America. Thomas Eric Duncan, who brought Ebola to Dallas, would (if he were still alive) be prosecuted in his native Liberia for falsely claiming he had not been in contact with any Ebola cases. He seems to have ‘shared’ his virus with a couple of his caretakers in Dallas and there are now at least 200 people being monitored – this is what is being widely report. Duncan had 70 (why so many?) healthcare workers who should have been quarantined. They could still be paid, they could still communicate with the outside world by telephone, but the rest of America would have been safe.
Those 70 healthcare workers have spouses, children, etc. (so at a minimum double that 70) and there were 132 (double that at a minimum) on the Cleveland to Dallas flight taken by one of his caretakers – so the numbers just don’t add up. Not much is known about Ebola. Is it possible that on the flight TO Cleveland she passed it along? Furthermore, the children of these 192 people are going to school and it only takes one to spread the disease to an entire school and from there it will go to every family with a child in that school.
There have been comparisons between Ebola and AIDS. Yes, they are both caused by viruses. Yes, they both come from Africa. But there is a huge difference. AIDS is ONLY spread by sexual contact or by blood transfusions – people tend to notice when they have sexual contact or a blood transfusion. Ebola is easily spread to people of all ages and both genders, and does not require any action on the part of the person catching it. You can walk right past someone with AIDS and not worry – but if you are near anyone with Ebola it is easy for you to catch it.
Nurse Nina Pham has been in the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas (and transferred Thursday night to a special care unit in Maryland) where she is still in serious condition after getting Ebola from Duncan, although she has received a blood transfusion from Dr. Kent Brantly, an Ebola survivor. The second infected healthcare worker from the same hospital, Amber Jay Vinson, is being moved to Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia - I have been unable to discover why Vinson and not Pham, but I do know that Emory treated Brantly. However, I did find a number of stories about how Vinson flew to Dallas from Cleveland already had a low grade fever the day before being diagnosed, but was greenlighted for the trip by the CDC. Why did they do that? Why was she on a commercial plane after working with Thomas Eric Duncan? It would have made far more sense to have quarantined every health care worker who had any contact with him, and to do so for 30 days, yet here was a woman who traveled to Cleveland and back.
Who is to blame for the recent beheadings of 3 Westerners by ISIS? Yes, certainly ISIS is to blame, but there are others as well and in this article I am going to name names. The most obvious culprits are the voters in the West who have brought us Barack Hussein Obama, Tony Blair, the heads of every government in every European Union (EU) country for the last 50 years, and political correctness.
There is something terribly, terribly wrong with the voting systems in most places. There are places where 100%+ of the registered voters vote (always for the Democrat candidate in the USA), various types of fraud are happening all over and yet nothing is being done about it. Then there are people who are now politely referred to as ‘low information voters’ (actually they are irresponsible children who are registered to vote), and there are lots and lots of misinformed voters who get their news from places like Yahoo, ABC, NBC, etc. which are very biased, very irresponsible and have an exceptionally high number of left-wingers as reflected in their bias.
The main culprits
In the USA , The Democrats, not just Barack Hussain Obama – I’d never heard of Barack Obama back in 2008 and I keep up with politics. So I went to Wikipedia. Now this is not the best place to find information but it is a good start if you stick with the facts or are looking for facts. The name of his church was listed on Wikipedia.com but not linked – so I wrote it down and went to the site. Now Catholics generally go to the closest parish church and Jews to the closest synagogue. Protestants tend to go a place most in line with their beliefs, and if you live in a large city there are lots of choices. So he claims to be a Protestant and lives in Chicago – but what I see surprises me as I’d never heard of Black Liberation Theology. The church site listed no prayer meetings, no bible study, but it lots of references to the ‘Afro-centric’ message of the New Testament – but the fact is there isn’t one. Then there was the small matter that he was in his forties and had written TWO biographies. Didn’t anyone else think that all of this was strange? Didn’t anyone else notice that he is both a communist AND a Muslim? Each of these are the anti-thesis of everything America has believed in and stood for, but together even worse.
Then of course there are the foolish Democrat Congressmen who “have to vote on this bill to see what’s in it,” as Nancy Pelosi said. Or name your pick, most seem to be equally ignorant and foolish. Most Democrats seem to think like 12 year old girls. Listen, this is real life and people will suffer if we don’t pay more attention. As one pundit put it ‘there are a lot of bad Republicans, there are no good Democrats.’
In the USA, The GOP is also to blame - although to a lesser extent but not exempt from this criticism. The establishment GOP is Democrat Party light. It seems that a lot of them would rather ignore reality than deal with it. Even those who claim to believe in the Constitution don’t seem to know what is in it. Nor does it seem to worry them that the Democrats keep making things worse. I cannot think of one single issue or bill, passed by the Democrats, that the Republican Party has ever repealed. Ever. And the Democrats have passed some pretty bad bills. Yes, the Republicans do take on certain issues from time to time, but if they lose a battle, they just continue to play nice. Nobody wins a war this way.
In the UK - Tony Blair and the Labour Party is at the top of my list, after all under their watch 11 Million ‘cultural enrichers’ came to the UK (without the general population knowing about it) to live and enjoy a parasitic life. Of course John Maynard Keynes is also pretty high on this list along with the fools who believe that socialism actually works. This goes back to before the second world war – but frankly I have long been disgusted with the British for turning out the man who saved the Western World (Winston Churchill was no saint, but he sure understood the world and won the war) and voted in socialism. I was a tad disappointed that Scotland is not leaving the UK as it is thoroughly socialist and aligns with the left, and with Islam.
On the European Continent – the French and the European Union (EU) are at the top of my list. Most people don’t know or understand that once a month the entire EU Parliament leaves their Brussels headquarters to go to Strasbourg, France for a week. Not just the members of the Parliament, but the secretaries, the translators, all of the administrative staff as well as truckloads of papers. Why you may ask? to make the French happy. The French wanted the EU to meet in France. And it gets worse. If the European people understood what was going on, if they had a spine, if they didn’t place a higher value on their easy life style than they do on reality, if were not so fearful and helpless they would as the expression goes ‘boil them (the EU officials) in oil.’
Political Correctness – has taken over the schools and universities, the MSM (aka the Lame Stream Media), and most of society. One is never allowed to comment (except positively) or criticize on anything that 50 years ago would have been a given and seen as wrong. At one time America was a meritocracy but no longer. The self-esteem movement (highly promoted by the teacher’s unions), a part of the political correctness movement insist that every single person is especially wonderful and ever culture is equal and good. This self-esteem movement and political correctness are to be found at every level from kindergartens thru university professional and graduate schools. If you have anything or have achieved something then it must be wrong and you are evil and stealing your good fortune from those less fortunate.
There are other culprits of course, a great number. However this list covers the main ones. Is ISIS a worry in the USA? It most certainly is and among those ‘undocumented’ folks who came over our southern border last summer, or even earlier, there are not a few who are terrorists and would happily cut your head off for not agreeing with them. I’m a dumb girl who has never been in the center of politics, not well connected, and I certainly didn’t study counterterrorism, international relations, or political science. Yet, I have known for years that there are terrorists training camps in Cuba and Venezuela (and probably elsewhere in this hemisphere) where terrorists go to learn Spanish and then are smuggled into the USA via Mexico. They hide among the Hispanic population and those not winning converts to Islam are plotting to destroy us. Doesn’t anyone else know this? Isn’t anyone else worried?
Beheadings may soon become common in the West and I blame all of the above. Cultures are not equal, political correctness has failed in every way. Since about the year 2000 nearly everyone in America is either hooked up to the internet or has some (even limited) access to it. Information is out there, yet those who have the most access to it are often the most ignorant of what is going on. They say the devil will always announce what he is going to do, Hitler announced his positions in Mein Kampf, ISIS has made it quite clear what their intentions are and that they intend to come to the USA. Now you know, don’t forget to vote.
Things just keep getting curiouser and curiouser. When will we find President Barack Obama wandering around the White House lawn in his jamies? The White House just announced that 3,000 U.S. military personnel are going to be deployed to deal with the Ebola crisis in West Africa. This Obama now claims is the #1 threat to the USA. Is this insane? Or is this insane?
Only last week the entire nation heard Obama planned to deploy far fewer military personnel to deal with ISIS in the Middle East. So what is it? The truth seems to be that the #1 threat to America, to Israel, and to the free world is Barack Obama.
The sooner this man is removed from office the better. I know, I know, he has an insurance policy against that happening – Vice President Joe Biden. But even Biden may be better than what we currently have, and if POTUS is replaced soon enough we don’t have to deal with the silliness of Joe Biden in 2016 – he will have shot himself in the foot multiple times by then. In fact he will have shot himself in the foot so many times that even the Main Stream Press will have to report it. (I get the feeling that they hide a lot of this today in order to protect Obama.)
It seems that this sheer stupidity is fairly widespread among the Democrats. We all know about Nancy Pelosi and her ‘we must pass the bill to find out what is in it’ statement regarding Obamacare. We all know about Debbie Wasserman Schulz calling the Israeli Ambassador a liar, despite videos that showed the opposite. But have you heard that Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill would have helped the cause because it would have allowed foreign trained doctors to leave the country to help with the crisis without jeopardizing their immigration status.
Here’s a thought: first we stop allowing people with contagious diseases, or countries that have known widespread contagious diseases, into the country, and also screen all potential immigrants for diseases. Why not tighter immigration laws to begin with? I understand that in the 1920s a potential immigrant could come to the USA and be turned away for a heart defect – now people with contagious diseases are allowed to enter. How things have changed.
You read that a right. It was the Mexican flag that was flown last Saturday on the occasion of a Mexican holiday parade (Eloy Fiesas Patrias), in which the flag was flown on a float it was in support of Democrat Party nominee for Governor of Arizona, Fred DuVal and Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick is a sitting member of Congress. Banners of both Democrat politicians were also on the float.
Governor Jan Brewer is term limited, hence cannot run for re-election. However the Republican Party is running Dough Ducey – I don’t know a lot about him but I did find a photo of Sheriff Joe Arpaio (American’s toughest sheriff). on stage with him (night of the primary?). He has been endorsed by Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, John McCain and Jeff Flake along with former Senator John Kyl. Governor Brewer of Arizona and Scott Walker also have endorsed him.
While the float as created and run by Democrat volunteers, what does this tell you about Democrats?
The headlines say it all it seems and here are a few I found on Obama’s 9/10 address to the nation about ISIS (incidentally not a word on Iran, the real threat to the Western world). Below in alphabetical order are headlines from news media, Left and Right, and a figure on the left who article was published in the right wing media (ever noticed how it almost doesn’t exist the other way), and a few comments.
Is Obama ISIS’s worst nightmare? (subtitled Can Obama destroy ISIS?) by Fred Kaplan for The Chicago Tribune.
We wish. This is what was really meant: Is ISIS Obama’s worst nightmare? The golfer-in-chief seems to act like it is 2009 and so does the author. The article concludes with a quote from Slate that “Obama is doing as close to the right thing as the mess of the Middle East allows” – but then did we expect the questions posed to be answered, or to for this paper to ever disagree with Obama?
So let me get this straight – this Administration is arming (via the CIA) and intends to further arm the rebels (who side with ISIS although technically they are not the same thing), i.e. the Administration intends to fight ISIS by arming ISIS?!?. Furthermore, Obama pulled American troops out of Iraq, but now it is going to “expand the overall campaign” and that will require putting American troops back in Iraq.
Obama’s speech on Islamic State gets mixed reviews in Divided Congress by Michael A. Memli, Lisa Mascao, in the Los Angeles Times. (Note: this article focuses on Congress and does not seem to take a position on the issue, but then they probably just wanted something to publish and being on the West Coast, yada, yada, yada . . ..)
Naturally one expects the Left to avoid criticizing Obama, hence it is surprising to see the article in The Washington Post by Jennifer Rubin seems to do just that. The Chicago Tribune tries to avoid the whole topic, in the title it is more focused on Obama’s reputation than the issue at hand, but concludes with a quote (see I didn’t say that – they did), followed by an exoneration of Obama. The Los Angeles Times also avoids any direct comment on the speech Wednesday night by focusing on the reaction of Congress.
Bill Maher, who has pretty solid leftist credentials, goes right for the truth about Islam and indirectly says that Obama is naïve. This article serves to mirror the right wing article about CAIR asking Obama to say ISIS isn’t Islam – although in fact ISIS practices a more Koranically correct form of Islam than most.
It is Mark Lander, who writes for The New York Times, who deserves a medal however because he has, in one short article, made it seem as if Obama actually does believe that he is responsible for defeating ISIS (or ISIL as Obama incorrectly likes to call it), while at the same time talking out of both sides of his mouth.
The weaving and dodging done by left wing media outlets also shows that they are mostly opposed to Obama’s ideas, but are just not ready to admit it yet.
On the Right
Only an article posted on Michelle’s Mirror (aka MOTUS – Mirror of the United States) refers to the fact that in June of this year ISIS gained control of nuclear material from the University of Mosul. They also have obtained ‘remnants of the former Iraqi, chemical weapons program.’ (You know the chemical weapons that didn’t exist when Bush was President.)
This article list Obama’s ‘strategy,’ which is:
1) air strikes, like in Somalia and Yemen
2) find some Arab allies
3) try to get the Sunnis “on message”
4) rebuild the Iraq army (we did that once already)
Good luck on doing any of the above, and it will take a miracle to do all four. In other words it is not surprising that his plans have no chance of winning, and are doomed to fail.
The right wing reports and make it quite clear that Obama’s ‘strategy’ (a strategy he didn’t even have two weeks ago), is ‘doomed to fail.’ They also show that Kerry is still anti-war after all these years, and that Britain and Germany are not willing to support America under Obama – wise move that.
Today we remember the events of 9/11/2001 when nearly 3,000 people, mostly (but not all) American, lost their lives because Muslim terrorists flew into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, DC, and into a field in Pennsylvania rather than their Washington, DC target. While nearly everyone is familiar with the story of the brave New York firefighters who went into the Trade Center (many lost their lives too), few are familiar with the fact that there is an International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), a labor union representing professional firefighters in North America.
This union has approximately 300,000 members in 3, 100 locals and affiliates in the United States and Canada. Late on 9/11/2001 IAFF prohibited Canadian firefighter from entering the United States. This ruling did not affect volunteer firemen or those who worked part-time. There were a few professional Canadian firefighters who did not get the message in time – they later faced disciplinary action for going. Granted there might be some complications e.g. paying the firefighters, housing them, and insuring them for example. However, after five days the FBI, IAFF, and others asked them to leave. The full story, in some detail, can be found here.
The worse disaster in American history and our dearest and closest neighbor was largely forbidden from helping us. As I read this story for the first time numerous questions arose as to why. I still don’t have the answer/s – but it seems so wrong. There may, or may not, have been more survivors if the Canadian firefighters had been able to help. We will never know.
While recognizing the need to keep track of who is where, and paying, housing, and insuring the firefighters it seems to me that these issues should have been covered in the contracts and membership forms of IAFF. The plans of this union should have naturally considered the fact that we are neighbors and that in the event of a major disaster (however that is defined) this should have been covered.
I don’t know if that definition should cover hundreds or thousands of potential casualties. But I do know for certain that on 9/11/2001 up to 50,000 deaths were expected. I know too that there are hundreds, and probably thousands, of communities of all sizes at or very near the border between the two countries. I also know that there are factories, railroads, and other facilities in these places that might be in immediate need of more professional firefighters than are available on one side or the other of the international border.
Any competent leader (or lawyer), should have been prepared and included plans for such a crisis. But then this is a union – and unions are rarely if ever, interested in facts or reality, they seem to exist solely to gain as many benefits for their organization as possible, especially for their leaders, and to extort (or punish) management of the organization and/or the general public. This story does not look too good for the FBI either, another organization that seems more concerned with enforcing the rules, than maximizing their mission.
On 9/11 we mourn the loss of these victims, but if they are not to have died in vain, we must also learn ALL the lessons of that day and one of them is that emergency services are there to protect our populations. The IAFF didn’t do what it could have done, and we must acknowledge that and make changes. This is a change we can believe in.
