Obama’s College Thesis: Let’s Be Careful Out There

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

Rush was all over this story in his first hour today.
The internet is abuzz with the quotes, attributed to a Time article by Joe Klein.
And, it certainly sounds believable, based on other statements from BHO.
But so far, no one can find the Joe Klein post on the Time Blog, appropriately called Swampland. And so far the supposed ten pages are no where to be found.
Here is the blog Ledeen sources.

So, let’s be careful out there until we can find the quotes.

Obama Fails in Silencing the Free Press

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

I strongly believe when this is allowed to happen, our government will be allowed to silence anyone whom it does not favor. What would be happening if other news organizations started to speak the truth about the Obama White House or simple ask why and raise questions about policy?

“What it’s really about to me is the Executive Branch of the government trying to tell the press how it should behave. I mean, this democracy — we know this — only works with a free and unfettered press to provide information,” he said – Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik

Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. said the administration was potentially in violation of the Constitution with its attempt to restrict access to the “eyes and ears” of the country.

An Indefinite Government

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

Interesting in light of our Government’s actions of late:

I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on the objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents – J. Madison

“Compared to today, yesteryear’s vision vastly differs in what congressional actions are constitutionally permissible. How might today’s congress, president and courts square their behavior with that of their predecessors? The most generous interpretation of their behavior I can give is their misunderstanding of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution that reads, “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States.” Misuse of the “general welfare” clause serves as warrant for Congress to do just about anything upon which it can secure a majority vote.” – Walter E. Williams Ideas on Liberty – August 2006

Is our Nation on this path?

Posted by Mark on October 23, 2009

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny” – Thomas Jefferson

“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” – James Madison
