Personal and Public Ethics

Personal and Public Ethics

The resignation of John Kitzhaber should come as no surprise to those of us who’ve been monitoring the career of both he and his inamorata, whose recent past includes the disclosure of immigration fraud. A revelation that dovetailed perfectly with this particular couple’s militant open borders activism, including an ACLU-endorsed campaign to invest illegal aliens with drivers’ licenses. Although the proximate cause of Kitzhaber’s ignominious retirement from public life is the dubious green energy scheme-a hallmark of Obamanomics-which lined the pockets of Oregon’s former first lady, the fact that both of these individuals are trusted members of the treason lobby should not escape notice.  Read More »

The Rule Of Law

The Rule Of Law

Kudos to Judge Andrew Hanen, bête noire of the treason lobby, for being the first person to put a halt-albeit, temporarily-to Barack Obama’s most recent lawless executive action. We recommend reading Legal Insurrection’s analysis of Judge Hanen’s Temporary Injunctive Order, which includes generous excerpts, as well as a pdf file of the judge’s complete decision. Our friend Hans Von Spakovsky has an in-depth analysis of Hanen’s injunction over at The Daily Signal which deserves your perusal as well. Whether this ruling strengthens the spine of the heretofore invertebrate class within Congress remains to be seen. However, what can’t be disputed is that this ruling is a victory-however delayed-for the American people.

 

 

 

Islamic Isolation

February 17, 2015

 

It’s funny, because this sounds a lot like a cell to me. Perhaps not quite as ambitious as the one which orchestrated the September 11th attacks, or even the group that planned the London massacre of July 7, 2005. However, there’s still a lot we haven’t learned about the most recent outbreak of sudden jihad syndrome in Copenhagen was not the work of an isolated extremist. So much for lone wolves.

Update: Audio of the moment the attack commenced. 

As we saw during the horrific attacks in France, the Pakistani siege of Mumbai, and almost every other recent jihadist wave, the small minority of extremists have carefully selected their next targets. Courtesy of World Post, an account of the attack on a Copenhagen synagogue.  Read More »

John Boehner Gets Tough

John Boehner Gets Tough

Sort of. 

Unmannerly language aside, I doubt that the Speaker will be doing much heavy lifting in this regard. Amnesty is one mud sandwich Mr. Boehner actually enjoys eating. 

Jobless in America

Jobless in America

Despite the intentionally deceptive narrative crafted for public consumption by this administration and its accomplices in the news media, the jobs picture in the United States continues to be dismal, as the CEO of Gallup has declared in an extraordinary interview on Fox News recently. Even as millions of Americans fruitlessly scramble for gainful employment, the federal government continues to search for means of hobbling an already anemic economy. Read More »

Walk Out Of Darkness

Walk Out Of Darkness

I don’t often use this space for personal appeals, but feel compelled to do so today. In addition to losing my uncle, John Marmo, earlier this year to suicide, my best friend, Fiona Fort, took her life after struggling with the chronic pain of depression for most of her adult life. Even if you are fortunate enough to have never grieved the loss of a loved one to this disease-or to know someone suffering from suicidal ideation-I urge those of you who can to contribute to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Denver Metro Walk Out of the Darkness Community Walk.

You can read my friend Ann’s story and donate to her cause here.  Read More »

Bye Bye Boehner

January 4, 2015
Bye Bye Boehner

Although the prospect of replacing the current Speaker of the House looks grim at the moment-especially from an historical standpoint-the fact remains that there is widespread dissatisfaction with the leadership, such as it is, of John Boehner. If the quarter of a million letters demanding that he be replaced weren’t an indication of that sentiment, nor the public call for the same by establishmentarian talking head Sean Hannity, then certainly the outpouring of dissent from within his own caucus should serve as a clue that not Speaker Spray Tan is not universally beloved by Republicans in this nation.

NY ICE Counter DREAMers (Rally Tomorrow Afternoon)

NY ICE Counter DREAMers (Rally Tomorrow Afternoon)
Even as the federal government willfully violates the Constitution in order to assiduously cater to the needs of millions of illegal aliens, our own state’s leaders are trying to find a way to subsidize the “undocumented” with your wealth. Joanna Marzullo, of New York ICE, is organizing her own response, the details of which you can read after the jump.

NY ICE Rally Against Administrative Amnesty (Today at 7 PM!)

November 20, 2014

This just in, courtesy of Joanna Marzullo, founder of NY ICE: 

As many of you know, Obama is planning on issuing an Executive amnesty later today.  This action is anticipated because the recent mid-term elections were not in his favor.  Obama is showing his hand, and showing he will exceed his rights as President when what he wants goes against the will of the American people he is supposed to represent.

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

Trek’s Trek (Honoring Brian Terry)

 

Kudos to intrepid investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson for bringing attention to a noble cause. As most of you know, the investigation into the death of Agent Brian Terry at the hands of Mexican narco-insurgents has gone nowhere for nearly the past four years, in no small part due to the obstruction of this administration. Even so, the friends and family of Brian have never stopped speaking out on behalf of justice.
