President’s Day 2013 – Celebrating Two Famous Presidents

By Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer, Patriotic Action

President’s Day: February 18, 2013

Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer, Patriotic Action, put together an exceptional series of photos revealing George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s  words.  His work is being posted here for our readers.  The wisdom of our former presidents as seen in their words are as pertinent today as they were in their time.   Indeed, they are timeless.  Let us celebrate President’s Day.

Let their words serve as a reminder of America’s exceptionalism, and its  traditions and values that are currently being destroyed by the Left’s determination to transform our nation.  During these days of a rogue and corrupt  Anti-American administration, the wisdom of our forefathers will renew our spirit and fight to keep what they fought for… freedom and liberty for all.

The man serving as our president today will never have his words repeated years from now,  nor will his words ever inspire like those of Washington and Lincoln whose heads were carved into the side of a mountain, Mt. Rushmore.   In time, Obama’s words will do the opposite. Obama’s words will  be used like those of other tyrannical leaders such as Mao, Hitler, and Stalin.  His legacy and words will be relegated to the dustbins of history where they belong. As George Washington said, they are “bad company.”

May the words of these great men continue to inspire us, and renew our determination to fight to maintain all that we hold near and dear.  God Bless America!

Thank you Larry.

  2. Kerry slams critics of foreign aid in first major speech as secretary
    Wednesday, February 20, 2013

    John Kerry on Wednesday ripped his former colleagues in Congress for contributing to public opposition to foreign aid during his first major address as secretary of State. Kerry said many Americans believe that the United States spends 25 percent of its budget on foreign affairs, instead of the real figure of just over 1 percent. He said politicians looking for an applause line have contributed to that misperception.

    “Where do you think this idea comes from?” Kerry asked. “Well I’ll tell you, it’s pretty simple. As a recovering politician, I can tell you that nothing gets a crowd clapping faster in a lot of places than saying: ‘I’m going to Washington to get them to stop spending all that money over there.’ ”
    Kerry said people should “say no to the politics of the lowest-common denominator and of simplistic slogans and start making real choices that protect the interests of our country.” [You mean like, Yes, we can?]

    • He calls himself a “recovering politician”! Oh John, we can’t wait to hear more from you. Another liar and anti-American speaks – remember being Swift Boated by real American Vets, John? Do you remember calling your superiors war criminals for leading you during your short stint in Viet Nam? Do you recall creating the organization, Vietnam Veterans Against the War? That hurt your fellow servicemen who were still serving and doing their duty in Viet Nam? You and Jane Fonda were two peas in a pod. Yet, he is supposedly a Catholic, and wanted to be a priest.

      Do you mean the critics that don’t want to fund terrorist organizations or countries that sponsor them or hide them, like Pakistan? Do you mean countries that espouse vitriol against Israel, John? Do you mean the billions in aid sent to countries that in turn go to the UN and say we are their enemies?

  5. America Over a Barrel
    Doug Hagmann, February 20, 2013

    America finds itself “over a barrel” (perhaps literally), and at the precipice of financial Armageddon due to the coming collapse of the U.S. dollar. It is most important for people to understand that our financial destruction has been orchestrated for a generation or more, and has been intentionally accelerated over the last two decades to complete a specific agenda.

    In order to survive what is coming, it is imperative to understand that agenda, who and what is behind it, and the motive. The bigger picture will connect some very important dots.
    As Americans, we are over a barrel. If you look closely at the fine print on that barrel, you will see that the barrel is fully owned by the Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We are the puppets of the Saudis, lock, stock and barrel. But there is more.
    It is Benghazi that provides a glimpse into the truth, and is the reason that the Obama regime has viciously fought against any attempts at getting to the truth. Truth will reveal that America, to further the agenda of the Saudis, was involved in the largest arms supplying operation in history. We were providing the anti-Assad rebels with the arms and technical assistance to overthrow Assad, destabilize Syria, and (like Egypt) install a puppet of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    • “The events that took place in Benghazi reveal that the United States is providing the military muscle, the sweat and blood of our men and women in and out of uniform, to accomplish the objectives of the Saudis. It was a military extension of the much celebrated Arab Spring, which (contrary to media accounts) is a Saudi plan of expansion.” I’m afraid that is all too true.


    I don’t know how much stock to put in this article. It sounds like White House Insider stuff.

    Wednesday, 20 February 2013

    This past weekend I had a private dinner with three Congressmen. I can’t tell you who they are, other than one is the chairman of a powerful committee, the second the chairman of another major committee, the third a freshman. I can’t tell you where the dinner took place either.

    Ostensibly, we gathered to discuss threats to national security such as Islamic terrorism, Iran, Pakistan support for the Afghan Taliban, and the Chicoms. After we got into this for a while, I decided to see what would happen if I said what I really wanted to say:

    “Fellas, what about the single greatest threat to America’s national security, far greater than anything else? That’s the traitor in the White House.”

    I expected them to recoil in shock and dismay, but they didn’t blink an eye. All three nodded grimly in agreement. … “

  7. GOP Senators Urge White House to Withdraw Hagel Nomination
    by Mike Flynn
    Feb. 21,2013

    The acrimony surrounding Chuck Hagel’s confirmation to lead the Defense Department has caused a handful of Senators to formally ask the White House to withdraw his nomination. The almost unprecedented step has capped weeks of debate over Hagel’s fitness for the job. In an effort led by TX Sen. John Cornyn, 11 GOP Senators have signed a letter asking the White House to drop Hagel’s nomination.

    While other Senators are likely to add their names to the letter, the current 11 signers make a symbolic point. In the history of the office, no Defense Secretary has taken office with more than 11 votes against their nomination. In the last 50 years, no Secretary has taken office with more than three votes in opposition. Even if he limps to confirmation, Hagel is already a failed nominee.
    As of this morning, signers of the letter include Sens. Cornyn, Inhofe, Graham, Wicker, Cruz, Vitter, Lee, Toomey, Rubio, Coats and Ron Johnson.

    UPDATE: Breitbart News has learned that four additional Senators have signed the letter. They are Sens. Coburn, Scott, Raisch and Barrasso. The letter was sent to the White House this morning.

  8. Graham Won’t Confirm Brennan Without Release of Benghazi Drone Footage
    Feb. 21, 2013

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says he will block John Brennan’s confirmation for CIA Director until the White House releases the drone surveillance footage of the Benghazi attack and the “emails on talking points that falsely claimed the attack was a protest that got out of control.”He says the White House is holding back this information while simultaneously trying to ram Brennan through confirmation as CIA chief.

    Graham has seized on the “the role of Congress… to provide oversight of the executive branch.” He says that when Brennan comes up, it is incumbent upon Senators to see what kind of role he may or may not have played in Benghazi from his counter-terrorism post.

    In announcing his intention to block Brennan’s nomination until the video and emails are released, Graham also mentioned the survivors of the Benghazi attack, whom members of Congress have not been allowed to interview. “I want to know who the survivors are and for the appropriate committees to interview them. We know it was clear from the beginning [that this] was a terrorist attack. I want to know what kind of help they asked for.”

  9. The NY Times is selling a group of their sister companies including The Boston Globe. It is no shame that the liberal and hugely Leftist newspapers are going in the tank. Perhaps they should try for truth in their reporting instead of being the propaganda arm and mouthpiece for the WH. The demise of the old Gray Lady is because of their Leftist slant and extremely biased reporting. They are no longer the newspaper for the masses and the one that others revered. They are no longer trusted and that is their own fault.

    Wouldn’t it be great if some of those newspaper assets were purchased by people who know what the fourth estate is really supposed to do. One that would report accurately and fairly, hold the WH accountable and investigate on the information they are writing about. Perhaps Boston and New York need something else to read besides the progressive’s point of view.

    New York TImes puts Boston Globe up for Sale

  10. Yet the media tries to tell us the opposite that US views have changed when they haven’t. Start deporting the illegals and obey the laws of this country! Mexico doesn’t allow illegals into their country! Hold Naps and her agencies accountable. They are to Obey the Laws instead of making up their own rules, and that includes the Usurper and Holder.

    Poll: Majority of U.S. Citizens Say Illegal Immigrants Should Be Deported
    21 Feb 2013

    (Reuters) More than half of U.S. citizens believe that most or all of the country’s 11 million illegal immigrants should be deported, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday that highlights the difficulties facing lawmakers trying to reform the U.S. immigration system.
    These results are in line with other polls in recent years, suggesting that people’s views on immigration have not changed dramatically since the immigration debate reignited in Congress last month, according to Ipsos pollster Julia Clark.
    Another resident, Keith Smith, got into a testy exchange with McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate whose views on immigration have fluctuated over the years. “Cut off their welfare and all their stuff and they’ll go back,” Smith said, referring to undocumented workers.

    “It’s not Americans’ views that are shifting. It is that the political climate is ripe for this discussion,” after the November election when Hispanics voted overwhelmingly in favor of Democratic President Barack Obama, she said.

    • So the idiot Republicans will believe the media meme, reach out to “hispanics” by giving amnesty to ILLEGALS, and in the end they will not pick up even one “hispanic” vote but they WILL lose many conservative votes. What makes them think that all hispanics are FOR illegal aliens? The illegals take their jobs as well as benefits THEY pay for, just as they take jobs from every other citizen and benefits meant for CITIZENS. This is no surprise.

      Likely, this is an honest poll and not a skewed one. It fits with what we see in our daily lives. It fits with what I hear on radio–now African-Americans as well as whites (and hispanics, too) are complaining about the illegals being put ahead of CITIZENS and legal immigrants. We the People are AGAINST amnesty and any “pathway to citizenship” and especially any pathway to voting. It’s amazing that 40% of DEMONCRATS want all or most illegals deported. That certainly doesn’t fit with what the media wants us to believe!

      McLame sounds, well, LAME:

      “You’re not telling these people the truth. They mow our lawns, they care for our babies, they clean . . . that’s what those people do,”

      THOSE PEOPLE? That’s going to win him admirers. Illegal aliens might mow HIS lawn, care for HIS babies, and clean HIS house, but if so, they do it ILLEGALLY and he’s going to be in some deep S**T if it is shown to be true. But they sure don’t do ANY OF THOSE THINGS for most of us who don’t like it that they’re here ILLEGALLY, thumbing their noses at our laws, and trying to usurp OUR position with OUR elected representatives. McCain does NOT represent ILLEGAL ALIENS; he owes US loyalty, not them.

  11. The Conspiracy of Suppression, Pt. 1
    Let’s Get Real about the Famous Birth Certificate
    By David Solway
    Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Snip

    It is no longer necessary or appropriate to act like wilting mimosas and avoid one of the most pressing questions in the land today. Skirting this question out of complacency or indifference, or for dubious reasons such as protecting one’s reputation by quashing scrupulous analysis, by refusing to confront certain indisputable facts, or from fear of association with ostensible disreputables like “birthers” and Tea Partiers, is a species of moral ignominy and abject cowardice. Americans owe it to themselves and to their country to follow the laws and procedures they have put in place to ensure the legitimacy of their electoral process. To wink at those, for whatever reasons, is surely to betray one’s duty to the country. It is a species of omerta, or what the Germans during the Nazi era called Gleichschaltung, coordination of the message, bringing into line.

  12. Rush Limbaugh – For the First Time I am Ashamed of My Country
    February 21, 2013 Snip

    RUSH: Folks, I’m sorry here. I can’t help but think that we are all being played for a bunch of fools, a bunch of suckers on this sequester business. I don’t know. Are you like me? Do you really think 800,000 people are gonna lose their jobs in the Pentagon because we cut $22 billion? Do you really think air traffic control’s gonna shut down? Do you really think there aren’t gonna be any meat inspectors? Do you really think that all of these horror stories are going to happen? I don’t.
    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to be treated like this, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being insulted? It just makes me ashamed. Seriously, man. Here we get worked up over $44 billion. That’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. In truth, we’re gonna spend more this year than we spent last year.

    We’re just not gonna spend as much as was projected. It’s all baseline budgeting. There is no real cut below a baseline of zero. There just isn’t. Yet here they come, sucking us in, roping us in. Panic here, fear there: Crisis, destruction, no meat inspection, no cops, no teachers, no firefighters, no air traffic control. I’m sorry, my days of getting roped into all this are over. We have the media playing along with all this. The ruling class of both parties play along with all this. It’s insulting. I don’t know how else to describe it.

  13. Illinois state senator pushes anti-anonymity bill
    02/21/2013 Snip

    A recently introduced bill in the Illinois state Senate would require anonymous website comment posters to reveal their identities if they want to keep their comments online.

    The bill, called the Internet Posting Removal Act, is sponsored by Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein. [DEMONCRAT] It states that a “web site administrator upon request shall remove any comments posted on his or her web site by an anonymous poster unless the anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post and confirms that his or her IP address, legal name, and home address are accurate.”

    • So did this Democrat object to anonymous people telling him what they thought of his ideas and he wants to know who they are? He wants to know as others do who posts nasty comments. Democrats want to know so they can harass them online and at their homes. Isn’t that the point really – to cut out free speech and silence dissent? Like you Ira, we’d like to know who is behind all the Obot crap that is sent to respectable sites and we’d like to cut out their tongues too. But knowing they are cowards, we just ban them instead. But to you Mr. Silverstein, Stuff it Ira! I think Ira deserves some more anonymous postings on his website telling him what citizens think of his commie legislation.

    • yeah, but requiring voter ID is racist.

    • Proving again that the DemoncRATS were correct in choosing an ass for their mascot. This cannot be constitutional. Thomas Paine himself was ANONYMOUS. They can kiss my …

      Seriously, how in the world does a STATE senator think he’s going to pass a law that applies to the Internet, which knows no state, much less national, boundaries?

  14. President Jacka$$… Obama: Helping Rich Only Thing That ‘Binds’ GOP Together
    February 21, 2013, 4:32 PM

    What a complete jerk.
    Barack Obama today told race-hustler Al Sharpton that helping the rich was the only thing that binds the GOP together.
    The Politico reported: President Obama, speaking to a very friendly Al Sharpton as part of a round with black broadcasters Thursday, offered a harsh assessment of the GOP — arguing that their opposition to taxing the wealthy was the only thing keeping an otherwise deeply divided party from falling apart.

  15. And they keep getting reelected! It tells me that corruption and criminal behavior is acceptable to Democratic voters. No integrity, no morals, and corruption are some of the characteristics they must have to be elected.

  16. Sarah Palin
    Celebrate Presidents Serving With Pure Motives

    We’re kind of consumed with rugged race competition today in our house, but the important thing to remember this morning is the significance of February 18. It should be considered an honor to celebrate Presidents’ Day, particularly with the understanding that President George Washington is at the heart of this patriotic observance. With every passing day, as we recognize the true state of our union, we can appreciate even more those, like President Washington, who have served with pure motives and a true sense of purpose, who loved this nation more than self and truly sacrificed for her future.

    Take a minute today to reflect on those who came before us and laid the foundation that was to be the solid rock on which future generations were built, then be inspired to fight for the restoration of all that made America a shining light in the world! Our past demands it, our present desperately requires it, and the world’s future depends on it.

    Presidents’ Day reminds us that we have been uniquely blessed by God. Be grateful for the rights He has given us, and please honor those who have given themselves for the preservation of those rights. Let us reject any attempt to fundamentally transform our nation because we want our children and their children to know the American exceptionalism we have enjoyed and to deem it worthy of protecting. Freedom isn’t free, be willing to fight for it.

    Happy Presidents’ Day.

    – Sarah Palin

  17. UN AmbASSador Susan Rice Benghazi Investigation a “Bigger Tragedy” Than the Actual Massacre – the 9-11-2013 Attack where FOUR AMERICANS were killed by Islamic terrorists, but the investigation is a bigger tragedy? What a representative for the US! A liar and protector of the Marxist ideology and the Obama regime that hired her. She deserves no respect.

    • Can you believe she said that and Jon Stewart let it pass and then, to add insult to injury, the audience hoots, howls, and applauds in response to her stupid comment?

  18. Restore AMERICA … WOULD I would love to get in their faces ..
    what B S …. ARE THEY REALLY…. FOR REAL? Close the barn door…after the horse gets SHOT? Sorry, a DAY LATE & a dollar short
    but let’s just skip along little doggies… IT’S OVER FOLKS!!! OVER!
    WILL you just believe what WE SAY & STOP all the QUESTIONS!

  19. I just heard that Jesse Watters on O’Reilly’s show interviewed Omar Obama as the “most famous illegal alien in the world”, and it is supposed to be aired tonight.

    • That’s INFURIATING!

      “In the back and forth between Congress and the White House over immigration, both sides seem to agree that people now in the U.S. illegally should wait at “the back of the line” for legal residency — meaning no green card until all other immigrants get theirs.

      But that presents a problem, because the wait for a green card can take decades.

      Maria has been waiting in line with her husband for 16 years and counting for what the government calls a priority date for legal residency. Because she is in the U.S. without documents, Maria asked NPR to use only her first name.

      Her story, though, is typical: Maria’s mother-in-law is a U.S. citizen. So Maria’s husband, who was born in Mexico, is eligible for a green card. While he’s waiting, he is in the U.S. illegally, running a small construction business and, Maria says, paying taxes. When her husband gets his green card, Maria can apply for one.

      But their lawyer, Mo Goldman, says it will be a while longer before applicants from 1997 are eligible.

      “The date that they’re currently processing right now is back to 1993 — and it doesn’t move,” he says.

      In other words, grown Mexican-born sons and daughters of U.S. citizens are at the front of the line for permanent legal residency after applying two decades ago. Different family categories have different “lines” — spouses wait less time than siblings. Different job categories also have different lines — college graduates wait less time than lower-skilled workers.”

      The real story here, though, is that even though they’re BOTH HERE ILLEGALLY, they’re already on the LIST AS IF they’re legal. So they’re at the front (or middle) of the line when they OUGHT TO GO RIGHT STRAIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE LINE FOR BREAKING OUR LAWS. How will they screen for this? What will they do when illegals come forward and say they want to get in line, but they’re already in line because they’re SUPPOSED TO BE WAITING IN THEIR HOME COUNTRY FOR PERMISSION TO ENTER?

    • “In a chapel on Rikers Island today, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the press shouldn’t be irked about being barred from photographing a round of golf between President Barack Obama and Tiger Woods.

      Mayor Bloomberg Wishes the Press Would Let Obama Golf in Peace

      I don’t know why the president has to have people watch what he does,” said Mr. Bloomberg, responding to a question from CBS’s Rich Lamb during a press conference introducing an anti-recidivism program. “He has a right to a vacation. You take a vacation occasionally, you don’t work 24/7. He does. He works very hard and he certainly has a right to his private life.” [OMG. THAT’S RICH!]

      Mr. Obama and Mr. Woods golfed last weekend and some media outlets were frustrated that they were not granted a glimpse of the two together. Indeed, Fox News’ Ed Henry, president of the White House Correspondents Association said they were just asking for “a brief exception, quick access, a quick photo-op on the 18th green.” He added, “It’s not about golf—it’s about transparency and access in a broader sense. … ”

  20. Demint on Barry…. losing contact with … reality … how so???

    DeMint – Obama Has Lost Contact with Reality

    • Demint talks about duplicative services and other types of waste. We hear Panetta warning that 800,000 civilian military employees will have to be furloughed for 1 day out of every 5. AT THE SAME TIME, the Pentagon under Panetta is GIVING BENEFITS TO SAME SEX, COHABITING PARTNERS of military members (but not to opposite sex cohabiting partners of military members). Now, how will the 800,000 who are involuntarily furloughed, losing 20% of their pay, feel about Barry extending benefits to unmarried partners of gays? You think they may wonder why Barry doesn’t PRIORITIZE? He can come up with this extra money for gays, but not for them? He can’t cut any waste? I have one argument with DeMint. He gives this list: ““We need to prove to these Washington establishment folks that the best way to win races is to get a good conservative candidate,” he said. “We saw it in (Marco) Rubio, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Jeff Flake. They’re out there. They can win, and we just need to identify them and support them.””

      Now, what’s wrong with that picture? WHERE ARE THE CONSERVATIVE WOMEN in his list? Until these guys “get it”, they’re going to continue to have trouble with women. Why does DeMint not mention Governor Palin? There are a lot of rising stars who are WOMEN. Why do these men not see them? DIVERSIFY.

  21. And … after Sheriff JOE…. who will fill his shoes?? They scream at him…..are we all nuts??? Free Ride … free 4 all … What next? Stop it NOW …. or kiss it all good bye very soon folks…

    • “The organization leading the recall drive says Arpaio “has failed to fulfill his duties.”

      “We believe business owners should not be unfairly harassed, workers unlawfully detained and families unjustly torn apart from raids that have nothing to do with public safety,” the group says.”

      You see how they distract and distort? If the sheriff enforces the LAWS against employers hiring ILLEGAL ALIENS, then the sheriff is “harassing” them. btw, BARRY claims to be for the law that forbids hiring illegals, so I am waiting for this group to seek to impeach Barry. Then they talk about “workers” being “unlawfully” detained. The only WORKERS who get detained are ILLEGAL WORKERS. It’s the sheriff’s job to ENFORCE the law. Then they talk about families being “unjustly” torn apart. But JUSTICE is part of determining what’s “just”. What’s NOT just is being illegally in someone else’s country, taking jobs you’re not entitled to, getting benefits you’re not entitled to. That’s “unjust”. If illegal aliens find their families torn apart, they have nobody but themselves to blame. There’s nothing that prevents them from bringing all of their family back home with them, when they go.

      Finally, they come up with the misdirection that the sheriff DOING HIS JOB has nothing to do with “public safety”, as if that’s the only job that the sheriff has. NO, his job is to ENFORCE THE LAWS, ALL OF THEM, IN FULL. Besides which, what they BELIEVE is not the issue: The issue is whether Sheriff Joe does his job correctly under the law. He does and he was legally reelected by the people of AZ. I wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of people in the opposition group are ILLEGAL ALIENS THEMSELVES.

      • Off the cuff thinking here, but I think that is the group that was run by the husband and wife activist team – associated with La Raza. The guy I am thinking about is a radical leftist. I can’t remember his name for sure – the wife doesn’t use his surname. Perhaps Perez or Parraz. We have discussed them before and I think they changed the name of the organization too. It will come to me or maybe someone else can remember. I think Perez is the DOJ attorney that wrote that scathing report that was filled with allegations but no evidence, and the DOJ suit was later dropped after all of the false information was spread. There were several leftist organizations formed to bring down Joe, and they didn’t succeed.

        • Parraz sounds right. It think it’s them. They have it out for Sheriff Joe. The clown ran against McCain for the Senate: From 2010:

          “Parraz suing Arpaio for ’08 wrongful arrest

          Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Randy Parraz is no fan of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the conservative poster boy for the state’s new immigration law. And now, Parraz is suing him.

          Parraz, a former union official seeking his party’s nomination for Senate, delivered a lawsuit to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday for a wrongful arrest in 2008. The suit seeks damages for abuse of process, malicious prosecution, among other charges, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by POLITICO. It was originally filed on Aug. 5, then refiled Monday to reflect several technical changes, said Parraz campaign manager Michael Trujillo.

          The suit comes in response to a 2008 incident in which Parraz, protesting Arpaio’s actions outside a Maricopa County Supervisors’ meeting, was arrested. At the time, Parraz had just created the group Maricopa Citizens for Safety and Accountability, which regularly spoke out against Arpaio and his tenure as the self-proclaimed “America’s toughest sheriff.” A judge dismissed Parraz’s case. …”

    • Yes, it is Randy Parraz that I was thinking of.

      Lilia Alverez, a co-founder of Citizens for a Better Arizona, is the wife of Randy Parraz. They represent the leftist, radical, racist organization La Raza, the group that is still trying to get their voices heard. These racists intent is to get back part of the US that belonged once to Mexico.

      Bridgette | February 24, 2012 at 1:36 pm

      • that would mean get back lots of California, Louisiana, new Mexico, Arizona, Texas and more, but only problem is Mexicans originally in these areas also fought to make it part of the US. during Maximillians time. And Mexicans didn’t take these lands, the Spanish did. It’s the same old tune of Columbus and the Americas. But Obama and Mexico’s leaders, and Canada’s leaders want us to all be one anyway, Their efforts will be lost once we and they all lose our sovereinty.

    • And to top it off if any lawsuits come before the Supreme Court, the “honorable” Justice Sotomayor will be on the side of La Raza!

      Sotomayor’s Ties to La Raza
      Jul 31, 2009 Snip

      Last week, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Patrick Leahy spoke out against critics of Sonia Sotomayor as playing “racial politics.” According to Leahy, “You have one leader of the Republican party call her the equivalent of the head of the Ku Klux Klan… That’s what comes across. It comes across that if you belong to a group that tries to help Hispanics… somehow you’re suspicious.”
      It isn’t surprising that he didn’t want to use our names. After all it’s difficult to defend someone belonging to a group called “The Race” by accusing her opponents of playing racial politics. The last thing the Democrats want is for the American people to know about the National Council of La Raza, their radical agenda and Sotomayor’s association with the group.

      Sotomayor was a member of La Raza and her comments about “Wise Latinas” being superior to white men appeared in the La Raza Law Journal. The National Council of La Raza [the Race] bills itself as “the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States” who works through “its network of nearly 300 affiliated community-based organizations.”
      La Raza receives tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to set up charter schools like the Aztlán Academy of Tucson where they fly the Mexican Flag, but not the American Flag and teach students “Aztec Math.”

  22. A smart-ass from “Slutsky”. She’s a labor union lawyer defending the administration. The hearing concerned the “nominees” for the NLRB who are currently defying the COURT and continuing to unconstitutionally run the NLRB and pass RULES illegally. This elitist lawyer gets taken on by Trey Gowdy:

    This article provides some background on the issue:

    • I’d love to see Gowdy run for president.

    • That’s the best the unions have to offer – N. Elizabeth Reynolds from Allison, Slutsky & Kennedy? Not impressive, and as evasive in answering — or lacking the knowledge — as other leftists we have seen interviewed. It certainly appeared to me she was unprepared. Since she doesn’t know how Congress operates, how can she represent her clients in a case that involves how Congress is supposed to work?

      • What struck me was how disrespectful and smart-ass she was. It was right at the beginning, when she insulted the Republicans by saying they represent the 1%. She was right on point with her meme and WH talking points. “The Republicans are only out for the rich,” not that this is a serious constitutional issue. The FACT us that Obama’s NLRB is ILLEGALLY disobeying a court ruling, which itself said that his nominees on the NLRB are there UNCONSTITUTIONALLY.

  23. Rand Paul leading by example in fiscal responsibility

    Kentucky senator explains why he returned $600K from his Senate office budget to the US Treasury. 20% of his Senate budget sent back to the Treasury!
    Sequester is a “Yawn” –
    Ideas for a Sequester without layoffs – Cut Foreign aid in half by $20 Billion – cut it off against those countries who are burning our flag and not acting like our allies.

    Begin paying federal workers in parity with the private sector. It would save almost the entire amount needed for the sequester….saves $42 Billion.

    $25 Billion in improper payments to the Pentagon alone

    Putting a freeze of federal workers by not replacing them would have saved $6 Billion over the last year while waiting for the sequester

    The military spent $5.2 MILLION to study goldfish to see how democratic they were and to see if we could learn about democracy from goldfish! [Is this a slush fund for secret agendas?]
