Rule of Law; Sanctuary Cities; San Francisco; Kate’s Law

The reality today, building for the last 7 years, at least, is the “attitude created by Democrat-run cities that they can pick and choose those who reside in their cities as long as those new residents vote for them and keep the wealthy teacher and other public unions employed.”  “It is a clear violation of Federal law done for profit and political power.”  The Regime’s secrecy has obscured the law much like a beaver dam slows the flow of a stream.

The lawsuit of this column could ultimately blow up the dam and end the life of Sanctuary Cities.  What a moment to break out in the chorus of a favorite song from My Fair Lady that would be: Wouldn’t it be loverly?

 

 

 

 

illegal immigration is not created by businesses who want cheap labor but by Democrats who want residents in their cities and states

Gustavo Dudamel-Conductor of LA and Venezuelan Philharmonic Orchestras; Naivite’

Gustavo, appropriately, pledges loyalty to his music and his two posts.  Next, he praises the Venezuelan program which teaches music to, allegedly, 700,000 children.  Where is his loyalty to the rest of Venezuelans, so many of whom are imprisoned, beaten and even killed, not to mention the entire population, excluding Maduro’s sycophants, who are starved by his corrupt socialist government.

The children’s music program is no more than propaganda to influence on the faux munificence of Maduro, the thug posing as a benefactor.  Nazism, Communism, hasn’t he learned anything?

Lies; Falsehoods; Obama; Koch Brothers

Over  the years, I’ve often quoted Sam Cooke’s Hit song, It’s a Wonderful World, applied to President Obama.  Sam had modified the lyrics to include more academic subjects, in so doing making it even more relevant to Obama, whose knowledge of most subjects is so lacking.  Just take the first couple verses (without the chorus, for example:

  • Don’t know much about history
    Don’t know much biology
    Don’t know much about science book
    Don’t know much about the French I took

    Don’t know much geography
    Don’t know much trigonometry
    Don’t know much about algebra
    Don’t know what a slide rule is for

I cite the song again in the context of his Las Vegas speech on Monday, during which he launched a personal attack against those who disagree with his energy policy, which, by the way, is the majority of Americans.  It was filled with blatant lies, what one has come to expect from the most divisive President in American history. He excoriates his favorite target, the Koch Brothers, each of whom is smarter than him by magnitudes.

The link’s theme is not new, Obama doesn’t need new, unless it’s a new abuse of the law, but it’s worth a quick browse, just to remind one how low a life Obama really is.

Iran; Latin America & Caribbean

The dimensions of the “Iran Deal” are so many and so horrific, that they’ll be counted for at least as long as the US supplications to Iran lasted, years.

Gen. Douglas Fraser , former head of the United States Southern Command, testified to Congress three years ago that Iran was backing at least 36 Shiite Islamic cultural centers in Central America, the Caribbean and South America. This year Gen. John Kelly, who now runs Southern Command, testified that there are more than 80.

Obama’s new solar system;

Obama at the Pentagon:

Th[e] broader challenge of countering violent extremism is not simply a military effort. Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas and more attractive and more compelling vision.

“It’s not exactly “We shall fight on the beaches.” To the annals of idiocy Obama has made monumental contributions.”

Complaining about America out of love and fear of the future

My email distribution is totally inadequate for the sentiments of Charlie Cook, with which I agree so thoroughly, so I’m spreading it further.

I gripe about the outlook of this president, which I find contemptible and myopic. I gripe, in other words, about America in 2015. And yet I love America — and in an almost spiritual way.

In the immortal words of Woodie Guthrie’s song:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and me.
and always will be, even when I depart for foreign lands.

Obamacare; IRS; Economics

“King v. Burwell is about much more than tax subsidies –- it tells a a storyof how the legislative and rulemaking process can be undermined for political purposes by a president who acts unilaterally, in secrecy, and without accountability.”  This makes the wait for the imminent ruling so much more tantalizing than just the subsidies issue. All the bureaucratic interference adds to the evidence that the text of the law was and remains clear and that was proven by the massive and illegal effort to ensure that it would be implemented differently and in accordance with political agenda dictating as opposed to by a written law.

Taxes; Economy; Economic growth; Income disparity; Flat tax

“What seems certain is Democrats will run a class warfare campaign of raising tax rates on the rich. But envy isn’t an economic revival policy.”  Democrats will continue to try (and too often, succeed) to raise taxes to spend more.  Yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever.  It’s time for economic growth pushed by a Flat Tax.  The arguments are powerful and irrefutable.

I not only won’t apologize for being a fan of Stephen Moore and Art Laffer, who was one of the best teachers of economics when I was in graduate school at the University of Chicago, but am proud of what I learned in Art’s class.  Read this piece carefully and question me if you don’t find it convincing.
