Al Gore is for sure something else, although, my term of choice would not be near the same as his own. First he was a statesman, then came the politician. Next thing we know he is supposedly the “father of the internet”. Shortly there after he is a world renown scientist and prophet. Now he is a poet. I guess, in his eyes, he is the closest thing the liberals can get to a renaissance man. Check out his “fine” poetry here.
Republican Scozzafava endorses Democrat after dropping out of race for New York’s 23rd Congressional District after realizing that she can not win. This needs to be a realization for all the GOP to get the Rhinos out, move the Moderates aside, and bring back the Conservatives. At least the Democratic candidate was supported by a group sharing the same ideals; it would have not been even a close win for Scozzafava because of the difference in the beliefs held by her and her supporting party. This was a complete waste of time, money, and effort in the Republican party when they could have easily gone with much more of a true “right-winger”. But for now, it looks as though a good candidate will likely be voted in for the Conservative party. I am all for third parties, but unfortunately, it is usually the more well-funded individuals who have the higher chances.
Just for a good laugh, check out Joe Biden’s ridiculous rant. Sounds like he is encouraging dissent as long as it is in line with the Obama agenda. And be sure to see how he jumps back to Sarah Palin at the end, he just can’t get over his recent disagreement with her on energy.
This unofficial “czar” is one busy little bee since being approved to his office of administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Cass Sunstein has now drafted what is the equivalent to a new Fairness Doctrine. World Net Daily explains this “First Amendment New Deal”, “would include the establishment of a panel of “nonpartisan experts” to ensure “diversity of view” on the airwaves.” As we all know, the only lack in diversity exists on the side of the mainstream media not presenting any news that may conflict with the liberal or progressive agenda. So, this would undoubtedly be focused on what has been come to be known as conservative media.
But it is so far well disguised. Sunstein even has previously said, “It seems quite possible that a law that contained regulatory remedies would promote rather than undermine the ‘freedom of speech.” It is my opinion, that any restraints on media would prohibit the notion of free speech completely.
Given the wording of some of these documents like the Fairness Doctrine, and what Sunstein is calling his First Amendment New Deal, it can be misleading as to whether or not it would water down the information we are able to receive through the networks. One of the regulations, as reported by World Net Daily, says that “purely commercial stations provide financial subsidies to public television or to commercial stations that agree to provide less profitable but high-quality programming.”
With Cass Sunstein’s radical past I find it hard to believe that all the regulations contained in the “First Amendment New Deal” is as meaningless as the one previously mentioned. I will be on the lookout for the remainder of the document so that I can see what else Mr. Sunstein has in store for our freedoms.
I have been watching the media circus surrounding the “You lie!” remarks made by Rep. Joe Wilson during President Obama’s health care speech. The outburst came right after Obama had said that the health care reform would not cover illegal aliens. Then Joe spoke for all of us who know the truth. If only all of our Republican party members had the guts to speak out like him then the liberals would not have been able to push their way into our government so easily. My one and only problem with what Wilson said is that he later apologized. There should be no apologies for calling out a blatant lie. The bill does not include coverage for illegal immigrants, however, it does leave plenty of room for loop holes. In fact, one of the health care bills approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee called H.R. 3200 leaves more than enough room for coverage of illegal immigrants. As reported by the Washington Examiner, the Congressional Research Service said this about H.R. 3200;
“Under H.R. 3200, a ‘Health Insurance Exchange’ would begin operation in 2013 and would offer private plans alongside a public option…H.R. 3200 does not contain any restrictions on noncitzens—whether legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently—participating in the Exchange.”
So, Mr. Joe Wilson was just calling it like he sees it. And this is not the only “loop hole” that has been swept under the rug either. House Democrats and Obama have been hiding much more as well. We need to support those we have elected in office that actually have the courage to stand alone and speak out against the true lies.
It really amuses me, however, that everyone is making such a fuss over what Rep. Joe Wilson said. Where were these politicians demanding a formal apology (once is more than enough) from Joe when Harry Reid called President Bush a liar and a loser? Or what about the Democrats booing Bush during the 2005 State of the Union address? I never saw ANY of those Democrats apologize formally or informally. I never saw the media jump all over them for their rudeness. And I never heard of the possibility of them facing any sort of punishment what so ever. Like I have said before, the Democrats and liberals can dish it out but they can’t take it.
No real matter though. This really has not hurt Joe in any way. If anything it has dramatically helped him (that has got to be really making the dems boiling angry). Ever since the “You lie” comment he has raised over $700,000. This goes to show that we do not want someone in any office to shyly sit by while someone, even the President, stomps all over the people with their smooth spoken lies to forward their agenda. Obama continually chooses wording when speaking to the media to manipulate the people. He even had the audacity to “fib” again after the health care speech, according to the Boston Globe which stated:
“In his 60 Minutes interview, Obama also acknowledged he has nearly given up working out a deal on health care with all but a few Republicans, the majority of whom he said were interested only in using the issue to restore their party to power.”
As stated in a previous post on my blog, this is an outright lie too. The GOP has given hundreds of amendments and options for health care, all of which have been completely ignored and rejected by the President and the House. In conclusion, I give Rep. Joe Wilson two thumbs way up for standing tall and saying what we are all thinking. No more apologies!
I don’t know what disgusts me more, the fact that the House spent all day on this ridiculous matter wasting time and taxpayer’s dollars or that Jimmy Carter played the race card. This is not the kind of politician we need in Washington. Those who voted “yes” are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites that manipulate situations to get the support of unsuspecting citizens. You can clearly see the party lines in this vote. Here is an article about it first, and the second shows who voted yes and no.
If you read my previous post from early this morning regarding the Democrats using Ted Kennedy’s death to push the reform bill, I said it would be no later than tomorrow. Well, I was wrong. Nancy Pelosi has already said, “Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration.” I knew it would happen, they can’t just mourn for a day, it is always about the political agenda.
