Beginning in January, the Department of Homeland Security will begin the phased implementation of a national identity card.
DHS push for verified IDs may actually add to the pressure on Congress to pass amnesty for illegals, rather than lead to enforcement of our immigration laws. The Democratic Party is desperate to inflate its voter base with the millions of illegal immigrants in this country, and it won’t stand for law enforcement officials getting in the way of securing power well into the future.
Should any state not comply with the federal regulations, its entire population will be barred from travel until it gets in line.
The day of the free-wheeling American will soon be over. All for your convenience and safety, of course.
But requiring presentation of a national ID to vote will, of course, remain racist.
For the second time in 12 months, the administration has sabotaged a Supreme Court case challenging its disparate-impact discrimination claims, which rely on statistics rather than actual acts of racism to “prove” discrimination in housing and lending.
Its diversity police have been using the dubious civil rights theory as a cudgel to shake down lenders for billions in race-bias settlements.
Late last year, the Justice Department settled a case in Minnesota that threatened disparate impact rather than let the high court decide the issue. Attorney General Eric Holder sent aides to St. Paul to pressure the petitioner there to drop the case.
When another Supreme Court housing case earlier this year challenged disparate impact, the administration went into overdrive to derail it as well.
Clearly, the executive branch is rigging antidiscrimination law and undermining the judicial branch’s authority, corrupting our system of checks and balances.
It’s up to the legislative branch, with help from voters next year, to rein in this rogue regime.
Goodbye Constitution, twas nice knowin’ ya.
But, then, again, if we had actually known ya, we wouldn’t have allowed yer enemies to sneak up behind us and shoot you in the head.
» Benghazi: Betrayal that Whitewash Won’t Cover
Transparency, the current vogue word for truth-telling, is usually a good thing, unless you’re trying to fool all the people some of the time, like spending 7,000 words to resurrect a fairy tale in Benghazi, all to give a helping hand to a lady in distress.
The New York Times understands that Hillary Clinton is likely to be the only credible hope the Democrats have for 2016 and that she already needs lots of remedial help. The Times huffed and puffed to deliver an excuse for betrayal in Benghazi, meant to second Mrs. Clinton’s famous alibi for her tortured misfeasance as secretary of state — “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Freedom and Liberty
As if they ever did.
It used to be that liberals opposed our country but purportedly supported our troops. Now that they are running the country, there is less need to maintain a pretense.
A patriotic soldier personifies everything leftists oppose. Union leader Janet Vrotsos was upfront about it in a Facebook message to triple amputee Senior Airman Brian Kolfage
In case you can’t read the message in the image, the Vrotsos bitch said this:
You disabled veterans are worthless and all should have died, shame on you for fighting in a republican war, you deserved to lose all you limbs and I hope all veterans lose their benefits. I hope you die a miserable death you worthless fake hero. You and your family will be a burden on tax payers for you entire life.
Back in 2007, another ingrate moonbat made some similar statements about troops in Iraq. I left a comment on his blog:
Now that goes double for Janet Vrotsos, except I’ll let Donna stomp her sorry bitch ass.
Though I could not caution all, I still might warn a few:
Don’t lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools.
The ship of fools is an allegory that has long been a fixture in Western literature and art. The allegory depicts a vessel populated by human inhabitants who are deranged, frivolous, or oblivious passengers aboard a ship without a pilot, and seemingly ignorant of their own direction.
Akademik Shokalskiy is the name of our modern ship of fools. The oblivious passengers, having embarked on a mission to find evidence that would transform a hoax into reality, are now trapped in the reality of their hoax.
They hoisted their Global Warming/Green flag and sailed headlong into Antarctic ice thick enough to crush their vessel like a peanut.
They did so under the blessed assurance of the Inconvenient Truths of idiots, fake scientists and false prophets – their religion of global warming demanding faith that the three meter thick ice was but a remnant of what it once was. Their factless scientific models and theories predicted (years ago) that there would be no ice where they were going.
The ice didn’t get the memo. Stupid ice in denial.
BBC/Guardian global warming research/propaganda cruise trapped by record breaking irony …
… the comedy of a scientific research expedition disguised as a junket for activists and reporters
» GLOBAL WARMING ON ICE
It’s even funnier because the highly sympathetic mainstream media so clearly understands how utterly embarrassing this is. As NewsBusters discovered, very few MSM reports are willing to admit what the true purpose of the expedition was. You’ve got to dig pretty deep to discover they essentially planned their voyage using the same fraudulent climate projections the global warming racket has been using for decades, and promptly got stuck in a few zillion tons of hard, cold reality.
Do I wish them better fortune – to be rescued from their self-inflicted death sentence?
No. We still have plenty of fools to go around.
… by the way, it is now officially summer in the Antarctic.
George Bush, ATM machines, the Tea Party, the post-2010 Congress, the earthquake in Washington, D.C., the Japanese Tsunami — all this and more have caused Obama’s otherwise brilliant policies to fail. You would have thought that he entered office with a Republican supermajority in the Senate and a raging Tea Party majority in the House, all conspiring to thwart his every godhead from January 21, 2009.
Putting higher taxes on the productive classes, discouraging energy exploration of federal lands, adding more regulations, chronically bad-mouthing the successful, borrowing $6 trillion to waste on stimulus and handouts, and socializing a sixth of the American economy with an unworkable Obamacare plan apparently had nothing to do with our non-recovery.
On any given day, Obama says things that are not just untrue but also cannot be by any stretch possible. In other words, when he is not intentionally deceiving, he is simply clueless. If he tomorrow were to assert that Iran dare not use chemical weapons, that it is time for Assad to go, that Putin better start treating gays with respect, that in 2014 you really can keep you own doctor and health plan, that Guantanamo is to be closed, that Obamacare is going to save you money and provide better care, that there will be no lobbyists or revolving doors in his administration, would we laugh or cry?
One open mic, two bows, three apologies, four red lines, five deadlines, six “period!”s, and he might have gotten by. But seven, eight…?
When I first heard this story, I thought it was some nutty environmentalist. Maybe some tree hugger was upset with Sarah Palin because she and her family chapped down an oxygen-giving evergreen conifer only to burn it a few weeks later with the result that the gasses would end up contributing to Global Warming.
Boy, was I wrong. Joy Reid, of MSNBC, who was filling in for nutter Ed Shultz, noted that in an interview with Sarah Palin on Fox, a Christmas tree could be seen in the background of the Palin home.
