Today marks a truly monumental anniversary: 800 years ago, at Runnymede Meadow, England, King John signed Magna Carta, June 15, 1215: [emphasis added to quotes]
Magna Carta established for the first time the principle that everybody, including the king, was subject to the law.

A while ago, Obama’s “senior adviser”, the unelected Valerie Jarrett, spoke out (on Obama’s behalf, and apparently with his blessing) against therapies intended to change sexual orientation. Obama wants to ban these therapies, arguing that they’re psychologically harmful. My immediate reactions were: Where and when did he get his psychiatric degree? And, what about freedom of choice?
If the patient wants the therapy, why should the government BAN the therapy? Isn’t the psychological well-being of the individual more important than political correctness or the ideology of a small subset of the population?
Guess not. But I digress …
Obama recently announced his newest initiative, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance. This “alliance” follows and compliments his previous similar initiative, My Brother’s Keeper Challenge. [emphasis added to quotes]

Thanks to the Gateway Pundit, we learn that once again Obama has trash-talked his own (alleged) country, this time at the “Summit of the Americas”:
I am the first one to acknowledge that America’s application to concern around human rights has not always been consistent. And, I’m certainly mindful that there are dark chapters in our own history in which we have not always observed the principles and ideals upon which the country was founded.

Natural born citizen. Our Constitution requires presidents to be natural born citizens. “NO PERSON” can become president unless that person is a natural born citizen. Let’s parse the phrase.

Let’s count the lies (or “discrepancies”) in this story, supposedly first published in 1990. The full text follows, for purposes of education and analysis, with “discrepancies” highlighted, links provided to contradictory evidence, and comments inserted in brackets:
So Obama says,
Religion is not responsible for violence and terrorism. People are responsible for violence and terrorism.
The text below comes from a UN translation of the Indonesian law of citizenship that was in effect when Barry Soetoro lived in that country in the early to middle 1960s. This version took effect in 1958. Portions are copied here to elucidate particular passages that may be pertinent to our many prior discussions. Comments were added in red and emphasis was added in some places:
Barack Obama refuses to send the National Guard to the U.S. border to protect OUR PEOPLE from illegal alien criminals, drug cartels, Enterovirus D68, drug-resistant TB, severe Coxsackie viral infections, and (worse) deathly EBOLA. Yet NBC News reports that Obama “may” send the National Guard to Liberia: [emphasis added to quotes]
President Barack Obama is expected to issue an executive order Thursday paving the way for the deployment of National Guard forces to Liberia to help contain the Ebola outbreak there, sources told NBC News. The sources said that eight engineers and logistical specialists from the Guard, both active-duty and reservists, would probably be included in the first deployment. They are expected to help build 17 Ebola treatment centers, with 100 beds apiece. The sources said that no decision had been made.

Recently, Governor Jerry Brown of California (CA) welcomed illegal aliens into his state. But just a few weeks ago, television network Univision released an interesting survey showing that, unlike what Democrats want us to believe, “Latinos” in CA are very much like the rest of America. First what Brown and the president of Mexico reportedly said: [emphasis added to quotes]
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto kicked off a two-day tour of California with a speech to Mexican immigrants in Los Angeles on Monday [8/25/14] in which he pledged to make life better for his countrymen living on both sides of the border.
“This is the other Mexico,” he said of the United States, which is home to an estimated 11 million Mexican immigrants. [Isn’t that the figure for illegal aliens?] …
Brown spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California and nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter whether they had permission to be in the United States.
“You’re all welcome in California,” he said.
