More on BO’s military-style utopia
More on BO’s power to kill Americans he says are “terrorists”
This is lighting up the leftist blogosphere, but as usual, the right is lagging behind in some kind of “the word ‘terrorist’ only means one thing to us, and it doesn’t matter that it means something totally different to BO” stupor. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: no American president should have the power–sole or otherwise–to decide which American citizen he doesn’t like and should be killed. Period. So when Leon Panetta tells 60 Minutes that he’s totally fine with BO having the authority to decide who is a terrorist and that their murder without arrest, representation, due process is “a go,” I am beyond horrified. But hey, don’t worry! BO himself, with no help at all (look Ma! No hands!), “reviews these cases” and “reviews the legal justification.” Awesome!
(Wait. “These cases“? How many are there? Exactly? Oh, wait, we can’t know. It’s double super duper tippy-top secret.)
Even if you weren’t considered a “terrorist” by BO (and you mostly likely are if you are reading this), this should still give you pause. The Constitution explicitly states that no person can be “deprived of life, liberty, or property” without due process. No person. Period. Not just “most” people or people guilty of X crime. There are no exceptions, nor should there be when it comes to American citizens. Making exceptions is what dictators do, fascists do, tyrants do . . . what every scumbag government has always done to “deal with” their enemies, perceived or otherwise. It is not what America does. Until now.
It seems to me that we are either Constitutional conservatives or not. We can’t cherry pick which parts of the Constitution we like and which we don’t (um, isn’t that exactly what BO and his traitorous horde do?).
May 1, Useful Idiots, and a Cross-Country March (sure, go ahead, say it)
According to Big Government, there is a big “cross-country” march of Occupy goons, thugs, rapists, murderers, thieves, and assorted scum planned for this May Day. Yep, we know, as the organizers know (if not the mindless minions who can’t even bother to find a toilet or de-louse themselves), that May 1st is a big day for commies the world over. The Occutard quoted in the Big Government piece states, “I don’t know why that day, I really don’t, but a lot is happening that day.” Good grief. He gives new meaning to the term “useful idiot.”
And it makes me wonder what else this shameful (bowel) “movement” has planned for May 1st.
Pelosi’s Plan to Regain Speakership
The TEA Party needs to wake the hell up. Dems cannot take the House this fall. They cannot hold the Senate. Our only hope to retain and eventually rebuild this republic is to ADD to our limited gains in November 2010; too many so-called patriots are already griping that the entire country wasn’t turned around in one mid-term election or that the GOP-led House (making up one half of one third of government, btw) isn’t performing miracles all by themselves. They simply can’t do much more than slow things down until WE, the people, send reinforcements in November, still more in 2014, and still more in 2016, 2018, and 2020.
GOP “establishment” / RINOs as Place-Holders
We need to be targeting “establishment” GOP pols at every level and in every one of those elections (and later ones, if any are still around mucking up the works) and electing Constitutional conservatives in their place. That’s a no-brainer. Or it should be.
But we also need to understand that the House cannot be lost to Dems again. It simply cannot be (and no matter who is president, that cannot be allowed to happen). Better to have some GOP big government RINOs in there as place holders until we can send enough actual conservatives, no?
Yeah, I sound a bit (okay a lot) pissy right now, but it all kind of came home to me yesterday. I was at some store, and I overheard someone behind me talking about whom they voted for in the Florida primary. My ears, of course, perked up (she’d voted for Mittens McRomneyCare, but her clearly very smart mother had voted for Rick Santorum. Anyway,), my ear-perking got the attention of the sales clerk, another useful idiot as it turns out, just of a different variety. She muttered that they “never discuss that stuff in her house” and then she added (much to my outrage and annoyance) “we never vote.” I raised an eyebrow in what I hoped wasn’t too judgmental or condemning (I’m sure it was both), and she hurried on by assuring me that her household’s vote doesn’t matter because she’s long-been disgusted by both parties.
And then . . . then she whispered in obvious revulsion that she “sure [doesn’t] understand how that man got elected president.”
