Another country heard from. A day after liberal political columnist Cynthia Tucker offered up her best dog-ate-homework explanation for why Barack Obama deserves only some of the blame for lying through his teeth to the American people about the fate of their health care policies, along comes Michael Cohen of the Century Foundation, a progressive think tank, to try his hand at conjuring.
Like Tucker’s, Cohen’s feat of alchemy, which appears in New York’s Daily News, mentions the fact-checking website Politifact as the ultimate truthometer. He quotes their report that Obama “said at least 34 times that ‘if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.’ That statement,” Cohen goes on to add, “was not completely true, and it’s a lie that is today causing the President no end of political headaches.”
But if you study history, you find that many of the truths we know are actually false. For instance, George Washington was not the first president of the United States. He was actually the fourtenth president. You have to understand that what made us a country was the Declaration of Independence. And that was the beginning of our country. The first president was actually an interim president. His name was Thomas McKean, who filled the position before John Hanson of Maryland, the first elected president took office. Hanson wasted no time and established the Great Seal of the United States, created the first treasury department, the first secretary of war, threw out all foreign troops other than the British, and designated the fourth Thursday in November as a national holiday known as Thanksgiving. Some more famous persons held the title of president such as John Hancock who served twice as president and Richard Henry Lee, grandfather of Robert E Lee.
Usually when you obey the law, you are reasonably assured that you will not be arrested. That is not true in liberal San Antonio Texas. You can face arrest if your legal action, “freaks’ someone out as three gun owners found out recently. Only in Obama’s American can you face charges for obeying the law.
Recently, Judicial Watch received documents through the FOIA, which are, to say the least, frightening. The documents are from the Department of Defense and detail what should be considered when looking for terroristic threats. They include, but are not limited to people who speak of “individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.”
The document describes extremists as, “a person who advocates the use of force or violence; advocates supremacist causes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or national origin; or otherwise engages to illegally deprive individuals or groups of their civil rights.” Continue reading →
The miracles of God in the creation of our nation are endless and there are countless documents, which prove our founders believed he played a part in the birth of our nation. Benjamin Franklin said:
The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?
A new report surfaced on Wednesday that President Obama and his administration should have known that when they helped oust former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and helped usher in Egypt’s new President, Mohamed Morsi’s, that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood ties with Jihadists, slaughtered tourists in Egypt in 1997.

Appearing on the “Political Insiders” program on Fox News last week, long time Democratic political consultant Pat Caddell suggested that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is suppressing any investigation or other issues related to the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
Speaker Boehner has declined a request to create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi affairs despite demands from 160 members of Congress to create one. Continue reading →
This August will be the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights march in Washington, D.C. Blacks, whites, Jews, Christians, men, and women gathered in D.C. to protest the Jim Crow laws and segregation supported by the Democratic party. They weren’t looking for special privileges, they just wanted a chance to grow and prosper with the rest of the country.
They were taking a big chance. Should violence break out, it would have been used as an excuse to pummel the demonstrators. The Democratic administration was investigating Dr. King for links to communists or any other scandal they could lay at his feet. The country was on edge, yet they pulled it off without a hitch. Their progress was slow, but it was progress. Continue reading →
