As a result of the Canadian attacks in Ottawa it has been revealed that Canadian law allows for the revoking of passports of known terrorists who are Canadian citizens.  The gunman in the shootings there had had his passport revoked; that didn't stop him from his terrorist shootings, but it had stopped his travel back and forth between Canada and I.S.I.S.  

The United States has no such provisions in its law.  As a result, U.S. citizens who convert to radical Islam are able to freely travel back and forth between the U.S. and the Middle East, enabling them to learn new tactics of terror and to obtain orders and instruction.  Even without such a passport, domestic terrorists are free to travel in and out of the U.S. across our southern border. 

We have laws which deal with terrorism;  18 US Code 113B is the prime example.  All we have to do is amend that law to include provisions for: 
  • Temporary suspension of passport pending investigation and resolution of charges
  • Permanent revocation of passport upon conviction under 18 US Code 113B

And, of course, we need to close down our southern border by adding 1,500 to 2,000 more troops down there until more border agents can be hired and trained.  I believe we should also cut any U.S. aid to Mexico until it participates in the border closure. 

Our Congress and the President in particular have a Constitutional duty to protect us and the nation from all threats, both foreign and domestic.  The Senate Democrats and the President have both failed miserably in this task; in fact, actions which they have undertaken have made it much easier from those who would plot against us to succeed. 

  • Pull those damned passports.
  • Close the Mexican border.
  • Get rid of the Senate Democrats and hamstring the President.

Let's protect ourselves from terrorism, drug trafficking and disease.

In an ugly, last-minute attempt to save themselves from an ugly result in the November 4 elections, Democrats are playing the race card in attempt to get Black voters to the polls.  

One Black says: "I am a 59-year-old African American man, born and raised in Jacksonville, and now living with my family in New Bern. I am insulted by the arrogance of the Democratic candidates during this election because they talk to us through their advertisements as if we are stupid...I was shocked to hear the radio commercial that featured a couple of ladies suggesting the Republicans were trying to take away the rights of African Americans to vote. The voter ID initiative,(if that’s what they’re referring to) is to preserve the integrity of the vote, and a photo ID can be acquired for free through the North Carolina DMV...These things do not invoke trust within me or many of my friends for the current Obama administration. The Democrats are spending an awful lot of money on negative ads designed to discredit Republicans. Why would anyone choose that kind of strategy over one that highlights their own accomplishments?"  

He raises a good question: Why aren't Democratic candidates running on their own merits?  Perhaps they've discovered that they don't have any.

Ronald Reagan often spoke abut our "rendezvous with destiny."  He spoke in vivid terms about how our unchecked government could take over our lives and interfere with our liberties.  He spoke about an elitist government, a government that believes it can decide how you live your life better than you can.  And he spoke relentlessly about the steady drumbeat of Marxism, Progressiveness and even Communism in the halls of our nation's capitol.   In short, he argued, unless Americans rise up and take control for themselves, those who stand to lose the most will surely lose it. 

He was correct and the day has now arrived.  

This election cannot be defined in terms of popularity of the candidates; it must be defined on the basis of individual freedoms and liberties, and our abilities to make our own decisions about who we are and how we are going to live our lives.  We all know that we are unhappy with Congress, our President and our government.  I submit to you that the real reason for our displeasure is that we know our government is screwing up, refusing to listen to us; our ship of state is floundering in a very stormy sea. 

Yet, the ability to regain our more conservative and responsible footing is right here, in our hands.  By voting in November to throw the evil-doers out of office, we have the ability to stop the train of Marxism and Progressiveness; we have the ability to rescue our freedoms from the grips of elitist totalitarianism.  We have the ability to harness the runaway presidency that is destroying our country.   

We can and we must regain control.

President Obama is laying the groundwork to use an Executive Order to circumvent Congressional authority and to grant total amnesty to all illegals, (both recent and prior), in this country, according to informed sources.  Obama is also planning to issue official government identification cards to all illegals.  The Administration is actively seeking bids from firms who can prepare and issue the identification cards in enormous quantities.  

The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year; in the “surge,” scenario in 2016, the agency would need an additional five million cards, more than double the baseline annual amount, for a total of 9 million.  

The arrogant audacity of this Administration never ceases to amaze me.  This is certainly one more reason why we must take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that the Democrats soundly lose their Senate majority during this election cycle.  Get out and vote!

American President Barack Hussein Obama, faced with enormous problems just before the midterm elections such as Ebola, I.S.I.S., Ebola, Iran, Ebola, Benghazi, Ebola, immigration, Ebola, Russia, Ebola, the V.A., Ebola and Ebola... has reacted with a firm hand and announced that the biggest problem facing the nation today is global warming and he is totally committed and determined to defeat it. 

Gosh... do you sometimes get the feeling, as I do, that he needs to have his tree examined?  Well, I decided to do something about it and started calling tree experts yesterday.  I managed to call 114 tree experts across the country and they all categorically refused to take the job.  "Some cases are just totally untreatable," lamented one tree expert from Iowa.  "I'd rather clean my navel than tackle this problem." 

I hear through the Washington grapevine that Obama is going to ask Congress for $1 trillion to deal with global warming.  He plans to immediately send 3,000 troops to Iceland's Holuhraun Volcano to take care of that imminent threat to global warming.  He's also naming a new Global Warming Czar, Alphonso Gore, to coordinate activities.  "Until we defeat global warming, nothing else in the world today can be solved," Obama asserted from the 12th green at Augusta National Golf Course.  "I don't care if we have to spend $2 trillion or even $5 trillion, we simply have to win this war."  He then proceeded to sink a 15 inch putt and gave his caddie, Tiger Woods, a high-five, then marking down an eight for the par-three hole.  

I've finally decided that the entire Obama Presidency can be summed up in one word: ludicrous. Just ludicrous

Here we are, just a couple of weeks before the midterm elections.  The major issues going into this election cycle have been the I.R.S., the V.A., Benghazi, the borders, ObamaCare, I.S.I.S. and gay marriage.  But, those issues are totally out of the news; the only subject being discussed is Ebola. 

Why is that?  Is it by design?  Are the press, media and White House simply trying to change the subject?  Or, has Ebola become the focal point of the failures of the Senate Democrats and Barack Hussein Obama?  

That's MY AMERICAN QUESTION, respectfully submitted.
