Despite what the Democrats, liberals, progressives, law school academics, and their ilk want you to believe, the Senate does not have to give a hearing to Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, nor do they have to vote on the nomination.

By refusing to have hearings or vote on the nomination, they are doing their job, not shirking their job.

The Spiral of Silence and the Enforcers of Right Think

Scala_a_Chiocciola_Doppia - Copy

In our last post, we learned that researchers have found that people tend to self-censor their speech, both in person and on social media, if they believe that their opinions are unpopular or in the minority. Researchers call this phenomenon the spiral of silence. The tendency to self-censor is one that others, particularly progressives, use to political advantage, when they seek to punish or destroy those with whom they disagree. Depending upon how politically incorrect their points of view are perceived to be by others, speakers quickly learn to self-censor their speech lest they find themselves singled out, investigated, and punished by the enforcers of right think. Let’s look at some recent examples of this type of punishment that goes far beyond ridicule or ostracism.

Projection and Unconscious Confession

Amun - Copy

There’s an interesting series of articles by Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., who is a forensic profiler. Hodges

works with words and analyzes the “see-all, tell-all unconscious mind” of people. He calls it the “super intelligence” and through psycholinguistics observes “how a person’s words reveal deeper unconscious messages.” …

An Unconstitutional Power Grab

We the people American Constitution with feather pen

Recently, a disturbing story hit the national mainstream media, although it has been discussed in the blogosphere for quite a while. More recently, the story showed up at the Drudge Report, guaranteeing wider coverage.

Better late than never. It’s good to see that some in the mainstream media are willing to play catch up and to sound an alarm that we’ve been clanging from the beginning of the Obama administration. This particular story involves Obama’s Department of Defense (DOD) and an apparently ultra vires directive they “quietly” issued.

Obamacare: The Foot in the Door for Communism

Soon the Supreme Court will hand down its decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare. Their decision is crucial for our future as a Republic as well as for the next election, which might be our last chance to roll back Obamacare and the rest of the “fundamental transformation of America” that Obama wants.

Obamacare is designed to funnel everyone into one system, where unelected bureaucrats will decide what kind of care you get.

And what kind of care you can’t and won’t get.

While I researched and wrote this article over the past week, The Post & Email published a story about a citizen who has challenged Mitt Romney’s eligibility for the presidency.   The citizen argues that Mitt Romney’s father, George W. Romney, was a Mexican citizen according to Mexican law, by virtue of his birth in that country.  The citizen further argues that it is incumbent upon Mitt Romney to prove that his father naturalized in the USA by the time of Mitt’s birth, in 1947.    Continue reading

Scene from London riots by “youths”

© Miri WTPOTUS 2011

London burns.  Thank goodness it can’t happen here.  Or can it?

Disturbing riots in London are variously attributed to disaffected “youths”; to anger over the shooting of a gangbanger by a policeman; to “children” engaging in hooliganism because their parents are uninvolved; to hooded political dissenters, stirred up by unions and activist groups in protest of UK anti-austerity actions; or to “flash mobs” organized via social media by thugs who want only to take things they can’t afford to buy.
