The Sum of Good Government

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.”
-Thomas Jefferson

Obama Wants to Jail Americans with New Law

As reported in the Europe Union Times
June 15, 2010

Foreign Ministry reports circulating in the Kremlin today are warning that an already explosive situation in the United States is about to get a whole lot worse as a new law put forth by President Obama is said capable of seeing up to 500,000 American citizens jailed for the crime of opposing their government.

Sparking the concern of Russian diplomats over the growing totalitarian bent of the Obama government is the planned reintroduction of what these reports call one of the most draconian laws ever introduced in a free society that is titled “The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act”.

Irresponsible Journalists Publish Without Checking the Facts

Yesterday I noted that a biased student journalist misrepresented a statement made by Delegate Bob Marshall. Apparently the student heard what she "wanted to hear" rather than what was actually said and meant by the speaker.

Media attending the press conference included ABC News, Channel 8, CBN, The Washington Post, Richmond Times, The Virginia Pilot, The Associated Press and other fine news sources. Yet, none of these professional journalist heard or interpreted Delegate Marshall's "alleged statement" in the way that student Ms. Kelsey Radcliffe did. And why is that? Simply because what she reported as being said was never said, nor the meaning she implied ever meant!

Yet, our local gossip rag, the Gainsville Times, simply took the article by Ms. Radcliff without checking any of the facts, nor even attempting to verify the veracity of the article, and published it outright causing great harm to a very honorable and highly dedicated public servant who has no …

Blatant Media Bias Shows Itself Once Again

Here is an excellent example of the blatant bias of the media where a reporter takes one sentence out of context from a press conference and twists its meaning and intent to push a personal position.

MANASSAS, VA-Reporter Kelsey Radcliffe released a news article three days after a press conference at which Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall spoke with pastors, clergymen and reporters regarding funding of pro-abortion organization Planned Parenthood. This article neglected to state the facts or the studies he and other speakers cited for their objections to giving this organization more taxpayer dollars. Instead, it focused on a single sentence taken out of context with the seeming intention of misrepresenting what he said, and at the same time being hurtful to disabled children.

Bob and his wife have five children. The adoption agency told them that one of their adopted children had a 50-50 chance of contracting a disabling genetic disease which causes death in early adulthood. Nevertheless…

The Shadow Cabinet: Obama's Dance Around the U.S. Constitution

One of the most popular radio dramas of the 1930's was The Shadow, which asked the question who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows! The Shadow's greatest power was his ability to cloud men's minds, so they could not know where he was or what he was doing. Perhaps this is the kind of power President Barack Obama wants so that the American people will never know what he is actually up to in the White House.

More Czars Than Russia
The most formidable legal obstacle to Obama's dark socialist agenda is the United States Constitution. To neutralize its restrictive impact on his plans, the President has enlisted a den of extra-legal advisors or super-aides who can implement policy, independent of his official cabinet members. Their very presence according to Michelle Malkin's 2009 book, The Culture of

George Soros and the Obama Administration

From the Mindszenty Report Vol. LIT-No.1 January 2010
Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation
The Puppet Masters: George Soros and the Obama Administration
The movie industry has had a lucrative field day with the idea of a powerful overseer manipulating weaker humans to spread terror over an entire population. In 1986 Hollywood embarked on what became a series of horror movies entitled The Puppet Master. The first film featured an elderly puppeteer named Andre Toulon, who like the archetypical mad scientist, created a series of deadly puppets that scourged the earth in a cascade of blood and terror.
Presidential Strings
The theme of the overseeing force has been a literary staple since Mary Shelley's 1818 Gothic novel, Frankenstein and the 1962 thriller, Richard Condon's The Manchurian Candidate, which was about an army sergeant, who was brainwashed to be a political assassin. Again culture provides a suitable metaphor for reality. President Barack Obama's woeful lack of experience…

The Source of Liberty

" Liberty has never come from Government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it."
