MEMORIAL DAY

via: The Patriot Post –

“I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure that it will cost to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States.” –John Adams


Memorial Day provides a stark contrast between the best of our nation’s Patriot sons and daughters versus the worst of our nation’s culture of consumerism. But Memorial Day is NOT for sales. Millions of Patriots have already paid the full price. Continue reading

A Time for Choosing

via: Patriot Post

Given as a stump speech, at speaking engagements, and on a memorable night in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign. This version is from that broadcast. Continue reading

Questions in Libya

via: Patriot Post

Last week, it was reported that a NATO air strike in Tripoli had killed a son and three grandchildren of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. That report, however, is now in question as the only confirmation is from the Gadhafi government itself. The family rarely stays in the same place for long, particularly given current circumstances. Also, Saif-al-Arab, one of Gadhafi’s sons, is 29, unmarried and childless and is not a senior military commander or other notable target. Continue reading

Immigration Front: Border Agent Faces Time for Doing Job

Another Border Patrol agent, Jesus Diaz, has been prosecuted by Johnny Sutton, federal attorney for the Western District of Texas. In 2006, Sutton put two other agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean away for “violating the rights” of a fleeing Mexican drug smuggler. Sutton’s tactics raised great protests, even from such senators as Dianne Feinstein and Arlen Specter. Continue reading

On Cross-Examination

via: Patriot Post

“Democrats are deriding [Wednesday] night’s House vote to repeal ObamaCare as ‘symbolic,’ and it was, but that is not the same as meaningless. The stunning political reality is that a new entitlement that was supposed to be a landmark of liberal governance has been repudiated by a majority of one chamber of Congress only 10 months after it passed. This sort of thing never happens. More House Members — 245 in total — voted to rescind the new entitlement than the 219 Democrats who voted to create it last March.” –The Wall Street Journal

This Week’s ‘Braying Jackass’ Award

via: Patriot Post

“[Republicans] say it’s a government takeover of health care — a big lie just like [Nazi propagandist Joseph] Goebbels. You say it enough. You repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie and eventually people believe it. Like, blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing. The Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it and you had the Holocaust. You tell a lie over and over again and we’ve heard it on this floor, government takeover of health care.” –Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), with yet another gratuitous Nazi reference from the Left

Cohen later issued a non-apology, saying his comments “were not directed toward any group or people” and insisting that he “never called Republicans Nazis.”

House Passes ObamaCare Repeal

House Republicans made good on their pledge to repeal ObamaCare this week, passing a vote to turn back the whole “job-killing” package 245-189. Too bad they’re not making the case that it’s also “Constitution-killing.” Only three Democrats voted to support the measure. The House also voted to get four committees — Ways and Means, Energy and Commerce, Education and Workforce, and Judiciary — to start working on alternatives. Continue reading
