This Is Why We Need Term Limits

October 17, 2017

It’s as plain as the nose on your face:  we need term limits! But here’s the rub. Congress will never vote to limit themselves or their power. That too is crystal clear. This is why we need a Convention of States whose focus is limited to these items and these alone:

  • imposing fiscal restraints on the federal government
  • limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government
  • limiting the terms of office for federal officials and for members of Congress

And here are just a few illustrations why this is so badly needed. It’s dang hard to find either the House or Senate actually in session more than 2-3 days a week and Congress is loaded up with too many old farts, many of whom are sick, near death or have Alzheimer’s Disease. I’m not kidding!

This from Breitbart:

  • Sen. Thad Cochran’s office announced Monday that it his “intention to return to the Senate when his health permits.” Cochran is 79 and would have lost the last election but was propped up by Senate Majority Leader McConnell.
  • Sen. John McCain has an inoperable brain tumor. He is 81 and will die before his term expires yet he insists on staying to gum up the works as he did on the recent repeal vote on Obamacare.
  • Orrin Hatch of Utah is 83 and can’t seem to call it quits.
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein plans to run again and will be 91 at the end of her term if she wins reelection.
  • Sen. Johnny Isakson, 72, was away for two back surgeries early in 2017, two years after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
  • Sen. Chuck Grassley is 84 years old
  • Sen. Richard Shelby is 83
  • Sen.Jim Inhofe is 82
  • Sen. Pat Roberts is 81
  • Sen. Barbara is 81 -and a whole slew of them are in their upper 70s.

And that’s only the Senate! Let’s be honest. Not being ageist or anything but really. Think of your own parents or yourselves if you’re up there in age. How sharp are these people? And wouldn’t they enjoy doing something else (anything else!) besides sitting around micro-managing our lives and running up the national debt?

Go to www.ConventionofStates.com and help us bring power back from Washington DC (District of Corruption!).

This Palestinian Terrorist Will Get “Blood Money” For His Attack on This Israeli Man

August 3, 2017

The man attacking the Jewish supermarket employee in the video below will be paid by the Palestinian Authority as a reward for his deed. Were he to have been killed in the attack his family would receive a lifetime pension of more than the average salary. If he goes to prison as a result of the attack, he will be paid this pension.

The total sum spent on Palestinian prisoners and ex-prisoners, as well as the families of “martyrs,” in the 2017 budget is $344 million. That figure is equal to 49.6 percent of all foreign budgetary aid to the PA, comprised mostly of donations from the United States, Europe, and even Israel.

Just today the Senate passed a bill that would suspend U.S. financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority until it ends what lawmakers said is a long-standing practice of rewarding Palestinians who kill Americans and Israelis. This is long overdue and just another clean-up item that Trump is having to take care of after the Muslim/Palestinian/terrorist appeasing POS Barack Obama. So much to do and so little time and so little support.

Why Do The Libs Continually Favor Illegal Immigrants & Muslims Over US Citizens?

August 2, 2017

I really hate this and it’s pervasive on the left. The PC culture of not wanting to offend anyone even if it means (and it generally does), “to hell with American citizens”.

College Removes 9/11 Memorial of American Flags For Fear of Offending Muslims

Hat-tip the Geller Report:  Southern Methodist University prevented a student group from predominantly displaying a 9/11 memorial that featured almost 3,000 American flags to honor those slain.

They banned the memorial on Dallas Hall Lawn so as to “avoid messages that are triggering, harmful, or harassing.” Who is offending by American flags and memorials to victims of a major jihad attack on American soil? Geller says,

“That’s it. We’re done. Cooked like the Ramadan goose.”

This is just one of the victims being honored by this memorial, but we can’t trigger the poor little snowflakes on college campuses, or Muslims can we? The 16th anniversary of the attack is coming up, but I fear pretty soon we will not even be allowed to talk about it.

This Story Is Not Getting The Play It Should

July 26, 2017

The Daily Caller & Ben Shapiro at The Daily Wire have been investigating this scandal & trying to expose it, but the mainstream media are burying it. I’ll try to cover it as best I can and encourage you to dig further.

Imran Awan is a Pakistani IT worker and he and his family members were paid some $4 million by 25 House Democrats over the last decade. The Capitol Police have been conducting a criminal investigation around Awan and his family for stealing equipment from some House members. There is also suspicions that Awan may have put information from that equipment onto the cloud.

The Daily Caller reports that Awan had “access to all emails and files of dozens of members of Congress, as well as the password to the iPad that Debbie Wasserman Schultz used for Democratic National Committee business before she resigned. What I mean is before she was forced out when it was learned the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had rigged the primaries against Bernie Sanders favoring Hillary Clinton. Recall too that the DNC was hacked exposing all kinds of dirt on the Democratic Party. Hacked by Russians as they’ve been putting forward? Well maybe no. Maybe by Pakistanis. And the DNC refused to turn over their hacked server to the FBI who were investigating the hacking. They’re obviously hiding something.

Fired head of the DNC, Wasserman Schultz hired by Hillary as a reward for work well done.

Awan had been fired by most Democrats months ago, but he remained on the payroll of Debbie Wasserman Schultz (that would be taxpayers’ payroll) until the day before yesterday when he was arrested for bank fraud at Dulles Airport trying to flee the country. He’d also wired $300,000 to himself in Pakistan. Smashed hard drives were reportedly found at his home. DWS has protected Awan, threatening the chief of the Capitol Police with severe budget cuts if he refused to release her smashed laptop earlier recovered by the Capitol Police.

Oddly only Politico of the mainstream media has covered this story. Not ABC News, not NBCNews.com, not CNN and not The New York Times. WTF? What’s going on here? Inquiring minds want to know.

Zuckerberg & Facebook Forcing Us To Be Sharia Compliant

July 12, 2017

Another slam to our First Amendment rights. This is serious. Don’t forget in 2014 every single Dimocrat (my new name for Democrats) in the Senate (and even some Republicans) voted to amend the Constitution to give Congress the power to prohibit or restrict participation in political campaigns. A most frequent justification these days is shutting down “hate speech”. I am sorry the Constitution protects even what some would call hate speech. And lately Facebook has climbed into bed with Islamists, namely the interior minister of Pakistan to eliminate “blasphemous content on social media and to raise the voice of the entire Muslim world against the madness unleashed against Islam”. I’m sorry Zukerberg, that’s called censorship! Vice President of Facebook Joel Kaplan called on Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and also agreed to a special meeting of the ambassadors of the Muslim countries on a single-point agenda to discuss blasphemous content on social media.

“Blasphemous content” is forbidden by Shariah law (hat-tip American Thinker). This means anything remotely critical or questioning of Islam, Mohammed, or any Muslim doctrine.  Sharia forbids it on penalty of death. So not only does Zukerberg believe the US government should pay everyone a universal basic income (see why I call them  Dims?), he’s also willing to bow to Muslim fundamentalists and censor whatever may offend them on Facebook!

Facebook is the biggest, most widespread source of news in the world, so this is not a small thing. Pamela Geller of the Draw Mohammed Cartoon Contest fame in Garland, Texas is suing Facebook for blocking her feed causing her Facebook traffic to drop by 70%. Geller says,

“I will continue to speak in defense of freedom until the day I die. It’s just that simple. It’s not even a choice. It’s a calling. Facebook adhering to the most extreme and brutal ideology on the face of the earth should trouble all of us, because Mark Zuckerberg has immense power. He controls the flow of information. He controls what you see and don’t see on Facebook. We did not give him the power to abridge our unalienable freedoms.”

And so far anyway, we haven’t given that power to the Dims either.

Thus Confirming Some People Are Too STUPID to Have Children ~But They Do It Anyway

July 1, 2017

She was bored. She is also pregnant and the couple already had a 3 year-old daughter who now has no father. Hat-tip The Daily Wire. This rocket-science, über intelligence-endowed Minnesota young couple, Monilisa Perez, 19 &  Pedro Ruiz, 22 wanted to film a stunt for her YouTube channel hoping it would go viral. Boyfriend Pedro Ruiz (why get married just because your 2nd child is on the way, what’s the big deal?), wanted to film this dangerous stunt “because we want more viewers, we want to get famous.” This is the instant gratification generation. They were in love, it was a just a prank gone wrong.

She tweeted just before the incident:

Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever😳😳 HIS idea not MINE🙈

And now Pedro is D-E-A-D. For real. So what the heck did they do? They set up a GoPro camera and made a video of her shooting a book (from one foot away ~as I said STUPID) using a .50 caliber Desert Eagle firearm, one of the 10 most powerful handguns on the planet, while he was holding it -in front of himself! Too stupid to have children. Young Einstein Ruiz had tried it with a different book, maybe War & Peace instead of Cliff Notes to Midsummer’s night’s Dream? Who knows?

Perez was charged with manslaughter in the second degree, a felony that carries a maximum sentence of 10 years or a fine of $20,000 or both. I guess her children (one as yet unborn) will become wards of the state. This is a sad story.

This Is What Government-Run Healthcare Looks Like Folks

June 29, 2017

This couple cannot even take their own son home to die. This is government-run health care, not unlike our own VA system but ten times worse. The National Health Service (NHS) is the publicly funded healthcare system for England. It is the largest and the oldest singlepayer healthcare system in the world. This is what Lizzy Warren (Pocahontas), and the socialist (feel the burn), Bernie Sanders, UpChuck Schumer and all the rest of the dims (who I sometimes call the Dems or Progs) want for our healthcare plan. Any single-payer healthcare plan (the government covers everyone and pays for all of it) cannot stay solvent by covering everyone and paying for it all without severe rationing and restricting care, period.

Young Charlie Gard was born 10 months ago with a rare disease called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome and is in the terminal stage no longer able to breathe on his own. Charlie’s parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard raised £1.31 ($1.7 million US$) on a GoFundMe campaign, seeking treatment is the US. BTW, please note they are not seeking expert, highly specialized experimental treatment for their son in Canada or Cuba, Sweden or any other socialist country because socialism has killed innovation and ground-breaking specialized medical treatment and if the DC elites, lobbyists and insurance companies get their way, they will kill medical innovation here too.

Charlie has been accepted at a US hospital for a pioneering treatment called nucleoside bypass therapy, which was not offered by doctors in the UK. But doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital said Charlie should be allowed to die in dignity and applied for permission to have his ventilator switched off. The date was set for May 31st. Breathing last-minute life into the parent’s hopes, Britain’s Supreme Court agreed to review the case giving him a temporary reprieve – but to no avail.

The European Court of Human Rights ruled they would not intervene saying it would be kinder (and the unspoken truth -cheaper) to let the child die. Chris & Connie’s last wish was to be able to take their son home to die in comfortable, familiar and loving surroundings but the court has denied this too.

Weeping in front of the camera, mum Connie added:

“Fourth of August 2016 (Charlile’s birth date) was the best day of our life, the day that Charlie was born. The 30th of the sixth 2017 (tomorrow!) is going to be the worst day of our lives.”

The dims, as I’ve said are all screaming that American healthcare should go the single-payer route where parents and patients are taken out of the decision-making and some hospital, high court or human rights court will dictate your or your child’s fate. This is just plain sick people and if you don’t stand and demand a free market solution to our healthcare problems this is what we will end up with. Of course this is just what the dims want because it makes everyone dependent on the government. More govt = less freedom. Just ask Chris & Connie.
