The Big Lies about Voter ID, ‘Compassion’
We’re living in a time when people are being lied to by our leaders on a grand scale. One of the biggest whoppers repeated daily by the media is that asking people to show a photo ID in order to vote is evidence of bigotry.
If this were merely a war of words, it would not be so serious. But Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., ignoring two Supreme Court rulings, is using his federal authority to sue the state of Texas over its new voter photo ID law and its recent redistricting. He contends, without proof, that merely asking for IDs is racist.
He’s not alone. At a gathering at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington speech, an assortment of leftwing leaders equated voter ID with racism and called for enactment of the entire leftwing agenda, from radical environmentalism to homosexual “marriage.” The Left is terrified of people actually having a say in their future. They want to keep minorities in bondage to the welfare state and to make sure that the coast is clear for vote fraud.
In the name of compassion, they guarantee more failure like we’ve seen in Detroit and a bigger government to pick up the pieces. They can’t be shamed into doing the right thing, so the only thing to do is to fight back and defeat them. The Tea Party is the last, best temporal hope for America.
We need divine help to restore America, and we need to praise God for giving us this matchless country. And then we need to work as if it’s all up to us.
Holder’s Texas Two-Step
Attorney General Eric Holder’s attempt to rewrite the Supreme Court’s opinion to suit his fantasies is exactly why putting such authority in the hands of a vengeful attorney general is such a frightening idea.
Tea Party: It’ll Be Known as ‘BoehnerCare’
Tea Party activists are planning a “Pull the Plug” rally outside of House Speaker John A. Boehner’s Ohio office today, telling the Republican speaker that if he doesn’t use this year’s spending fight to defund the health care law, it will hence be known as “BoehnerCare.”
The Deadly Price of PC in the Military
Bradley Manning’s treachery has put American lives in danger around the world. Maj. Nidal Malik Hassan’s murderous spree at Fort Hood killed 14, including an unborn baby. Both should have been foreseen and dealt with but were ignored because of political correctness, says military analyst Elaine Donnelly.
