Harry Reid show: who’s to blame?

Harry Reid: 'Boss' of Nevada?

Last night, Bradlee Dean asked who’s to blame for the rise of tyranny in any society. He made an excellent case that those who let the tyrant take power, must blame themselves. Today, as Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) adds outrage to outrage, in and out of the United States Senate, we should ask ourselves that question again. Why is the Harry Reid Show not yet in reruns? Because we keep it going. We not only tune in. We produce it. And we can stop producing the Harry Reid Show.

Sink, sank, sunk

Is this what Alex Sink thinks immigrants are only good for?

Yesterday, an unknown Republican held a House seat (Florida’s 13th) by a narrow margin: two percent of the vote in a light turnout. (See also here in The Washington Post.) David Jolly managed to defeat Alex Sink, though far more people in Pinellas County knew her than him. As anyone could have said ahead of time, the Democrats deny this race portends anything about whether they will retake the House this fall, or lose the Senate instead, or keep things as they are.

We the People’s Non-party Party

Team New Jersey. Not a party. A team. And right now they say: not another Bush!

The glaring failures of the two-party system have been an increasing concern among patriots who long for representatives that represent the people rather than political cabals. The primal dissatisfaction of the majority of Americans with both Parties is palpable. The Democrats have turned into closet Marxists and the Republicans have turned into spineless compromisers that have turned play-along-to-get-along into a new art form. Both factions seem to be primarily concerned with re-election rather than protecting our Constitutional Republic. They have forgotten that regardless of party labels, we are all Americans and in order to stay Americans, we must protect America.

Love the Constitution – most of the time

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

I just received an email from the Tea Party Command Center entitled  “2016 Poll:  Who is your choice for the Presidential Nomination” and the choices include: Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Allan West, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan.  The truth of the matter is that any one of those people could do a better job than the person now occupying the White House, though I must admit,  Jeb Bush’s name on the ballot would have me quite upset.

How the Usurper usurped

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

There were well over 100 lawsuits that challenged Barack Obama’s place on the ballot in 2008 and 2012. These lawsuits contained a plethora of constitutional reasons why the man now occupying the White House should not have been on the ballot. Unfortunately, there were also a plethora of reasons why the lawsuits were dismissed and ignored – most of them revealing more about the judges and their disregard for the Constitution than the Usurper himself.

Evolution and creation in NJ District 12

Alieta Eck makes evolution and creation a campaign issue

The debate between creation and evolution became explicitly political last night. An incumbent Representative set that stage last month. He introduced, for the second time, a resolution to make Charles Darwin’s birthday a federal holiday. Last night his announced Republican opponent condemned him for it. And she did so on explicitly philosophical grounds. To wit: evolution, as a philosophy, causes greater social harm than does creation.

New Jersey: education of a GOP governor

Flag of New Jersey

Here in New Jersey we have had a long history of being governed by an endless conglomeration of crooks, creeps, socialists and progressives.  They have hailed from various assortments of Democrats, Independents and Republicans.  What each of them had in common, was their own contribution to the sorry state of this state.

What difference does it make? Reprise

What difference does it make to her?

If the question “what difference does it make?” is referring to the Sept. 11th attack in Benghazi – the answer is “plenty!”

Christie: I am not a bully

Chris Christie called a special Senate election for his own benefit. Or did he?

The airwaves, blogs, and newspapers have been filled with Bridgegate, the label given to the questionable political activities of Governor Christie. Highlights of the story being reported are as follows:

Chris Christie bridge scandal – review

Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?

The Chris Christie bridge scandal drew more attention last week than any other story. The attention did not last. New Jersey Democrats have not yet found any order from Chris Christie to create “traffic problems in Fort Lee.” (And not for lack of seeking have they not found it.) But the mainstream media, and the Fox News Channel, never asked all the questions they should have asked. These questions deal with more than who gave the order to slow down traffic. They strike at the heart of the role of government in transportation. They also go to the real agenda. And that agenda is far more dire than a mere fit of pique.
