THERE GO THE JUDGES

SPECIAL POST

Big changes are looming in the Supreme Court... changes which depend on the outcome of the 2016 elections.

Four Judges, two liberal and two conservative, are at retirement age: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia.  Rumor has it that Obama is pressuring Ginsburg and Breyer to retire early next year, especially if it looks like a Republican might win the presidency.  He doesn't want a conservative Republican to have the opportunity to replace any liberal seats.  

All four are 76 or older and will be 78 or older when the new president takes office.  If he/she holds office for eight years, all of these Judges will be well into their 80's; Ginsberg will be 90.  So, the likelihood that all four will retire by then is extremely high.  

It is vitally important to the future of America that we choose our next president after careful consideration of qualities and track records.  We need to ensure that the makeup of the Court does not change to a totally liberal stance.

OBAMA TICKS OFF KENYANS

SPECIAL POST

I know you didn't hear a peep about this in the press, but our illustrious, holier-than-thou, so-called president displayed his contempt of others and of his homeland on his recent visit to Kenya.  

Although he was strongly advised not to do so, Obama broached the subject of gay rights.  Kenya is a strong Christian and Muslim nation, and Obama chastised the citizens for not recognizing gay rights. 700 Christan pastors joined arms and sent a scathing letter to Obama telling him to take his ‘gay rights’ somewhere else.  And, also not shown on U.S. television coverage of the visit were tens of thousands of Kenyans protesting his landing at the local airport.  

Piling on with another well-deserved insult, Bishop Mark Kariuki said, “The family is the strength of a nation.  If the family is destroyed, then the nation is destroyed. So we don’t want to open doors for our nation to be destroyed!”  Evidently, they don't want any part of Obama's new America. 
 
I guess there is at least one nation in the world that is willing to stand up to the "effluent" dictator.

WHERE HAVE ALL OF THE GOOD GUYS GONE?

SPECIAL POST

I recently attend a party honoring an occupant of the local cemetery; he's been planted there for a couple of years now, but is still revered by the townspeople as being "one of a kind."  More than anything else, sense of humor and all, he was espoused as being a "giver" to the community and anyone in particular who needed some type of assistance. Some of those in attendance gave their testimonials and broke into tears in the process.  One thing is certain; this guy is considered to be as close to being a hero as you can get.  

In his time... his heyday... there were a lot of those guys around, but where are they today?  One thing is certain: they are far and few between.  

But, they're a most valuable commodity... people to be treasured.  If you're fortunate enough to have one in your neighborhood, do yourself a favor and give him or her a well-deserved pat on the back and some words of thanks.  Show your appreciation; it's the least you can do.

AND YOU THOUGHT NIXON STONEWALLED?

SPECIAL POST

The Department of Justice's Office of Legal Council has issued a 68-Page memorandum of instruction warning government agency Inspectors General that they no longer have access to agency documents and information, such as wire taps, grand jury testimonies, and credit information. IG's are charged with auditing and conducting internal reviews of federal agencies and most recently two IG's announced they had information about Hillary Clinton's use of a private server to send classified emails.  It was also an IG at the IRS who determined that emails the agency claimed were destroyed were actually available on a backup system.  

The move has infuriated not only Republicans and Democrats in Congress, but the Inspector General of the DOJ as well: “I strongly disagree with the OLC opinion,” DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said in a statement, “Congress meant what it said when it authorized Inspectors General to independently access ‘all’ documents necessary to conduct effective oversight. … Without such access, our office’s ability to conduct its work will be significantly impaired.” 

That, of course, is the whole idea.  The Obama Administration is running out of options with respect to their ongoing obfuscation and obstruction of justice regarding the Fast & Furious, Benghazi, IRS, and other scandals.  They simply have no choice but to shut off access of information to the IG's.   This move is clear indication of gross government misconduct that the administration must keep from Congress and the American public at all costs.  

The problem is that such information contains prima facie evidence that would give rise to swift impeachment proceedings.  The good news for Obama, of course, is that Congress can be as upset as they want about such things, but they will never do anything about it.

THE COUNTERFEIT CANDIDATES

SPECIAL POST

Frankly, I was flabbergasted when Mike Huckabee lamented over the weekend that his political agenda was essentially the same as Donald Trump's and that he's been saying the same things for years.  He's complaining that Trump is getting all of the attention, saying that if he (Huckabee) had as much press as Trump is getting, then he'd be leading the pack instead of Trump.  

Well, I've always liked Huckabee as a candidate; I think he does have some strong qualities.  I'm very disappointed to hear the whining.  

To MIke Huckabee and the rest of the legion of candidates in the GOP race: I have to wonder how you are going to handle the very tough task of turning this country around after eight years of Obama if you are already stymied.  If you expect the entrenched left-wing liberals to go running into the hills and back under the rocks from whence they came if you win the presidency, you've got another thing coming; they're going to kick, fight, scream and resist you every inch of every step of the way.  

In short, if you can't stand the heat now, you should definitely get out of the kitchen.  This is no time in our political history for weak-knees or the faint-hearted.  Pull yourselves up by the bootstraps and get the damned show on the road, or pack up and get out of the way.

IMPEACH THE SHAMELESS S.O.B.

A never-before-released copy of a Texas Department of Public Safety report on human smuggling contains the numbers of crimes committed by aliens in Texas. According to the analysis, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.  The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws.

This news comes as our shameless, despicable president has just made it clear he will veto any Congressional legislation which attempts to cut off funding for "sanctuary" cities.
  
 
 And we're not doing anything about it?
