Even Roberts's apologists admit his dishonesty

See, John, it all depends on what the meaning of "tax" is. If anyone asks, use this . . . .
The Marxist-in-Chief and his persons of hench repeatedly denied that the mandate was a tax. Until it was.

Charles Krauthammer, who, along with Hugh Hewitt, is giving credit to the Chief Justice for being a subtle genius, had to admit that Roberts used semantic sleight-of-hand to join the treasonous Left side of the bench in ruling in favor of Obamacare, noting that he was:
"finding a narrow definitional dodge to uphold the law . . . ."
We know what Roberts did, but we don't know why. Perhaps Krauthammer and Hewitt's speculation is correct, but they're not mind-readers, and Roberts isn't talking.

This is a better assessment of the issues at stake:
“It was disturbing that we made the case to Justice Kennedy, who embraced the concept of limited government, only to have it overshadowed by Chief Justice John Roberts, who envisioned the entire issue simply of one over the ability to tax,” Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas . . . .
What's to stop Congress from calling everything it wants a "tax"? Our malfeasant Representatives and Senators have the power to tax, but they don't have the ability to mandate, to force free citizens into commerce. Neither does Congress' power to tax include the power to tax inactivity.

This "law" and the court decision upholding it is Leviathan. It's big government. It's socialized medicine. Therefore un-Constitutional in every sense of the word.

Lou Costello (1906-1959)

A great man. It's rumored he had a sense of humor, too.

Just give me a sign ... Just any kind of sign. I'll keep on the lookout for it. Meanwhile, I'll just put you in the closet.

Sometimes, we choose to ignore the obvious.

It's easy to point out the faults in others, but it's not always easy to be honest about our own.

Lately, I've noticed something unusual. Now, God speaks to all men through His Word, so I don't believe (as some Christians like to claim) that "God is talking to me," but He does work through everything for the good of those who love Him, and so recent, odd circumstances have not gone unnoticed but have impressed upon me important truths I've chosen to ignore.

First, Courageous. Every film I watch, song I listen to, book I read, speech I hear, or game I play becomes a theological exercise (the Apostle John tells us by the Holy Spirit to test everything), but this is a special case because Courageous is an explicitly-religious film. What a wasted opportunity to share God's mercy with those who are hurting and lost (whether Christian or not)!

A father suffers the tragic loss of his beautiful, little daughter, and what is his -- and the filmmakers' -- answer? The (little "e") evangelical's answer to everything theological:

"Try HARDER."

The film's website admits this when it talks about its characters who "miss the mark." Of course, they "miss the mark." We all miss the mark. We are all miserable sinners desperately in need of God's mercy, which He lavishes on all in Christ!

(In other words, our trying does not "draw us closer to God," but God comes to us, giving the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation to all who trust in Christ.)

I have no doubt that those behind the film are sincere, "good" Christians. And they probably intend the film as encouragement to fathers, but it's not Gospel. It doesn't save souls. It doesn't comfort broken hearts. And it confuses Man's effort for God's mercy, which is hell for those who know they aren't good enough but don't know that Christ has already taken away their sins.

Still, some good stuff about fulfilling your God-given responsibilities as a father and overall, an interesting, emotionally-powerful movie (at least until the last scene, which replaces the work of the Holy Spirit with a pep rally).

Second, for the first time in my life, I'm doing it for Tony. And for Marcus.

And today, this.

One day at a time.

Hope for a change? We'll see, since it's a different dose of the same socialized medicine

Does anyone really believe that the guy who did "for" Massachusetts what Obama's done to the Republic will deliver on this video's implied promise?

What choice do we have? When the patient is hemorrhaging to death, you've got to stop the bleeding. Our chance to do so is this November. Vote out B. Hussein Kevorkian. And if Romney lacks the sense and courage to restore the Rule of Law, vote him out, too, and every other politician who promises to "take care of" the American people, when what they're really doing is coaxing voters into selling their God-given liberties for a bowl of soup.

Politicians' positions exist to protect our rights, we do not exist to provide them position.

Roberts' treasonous plunge left a nail in someone's coffin

Thomas Jefferson warned, "Let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."

Well, we've given our political elites enough chain to hang someone.

Either the Republic will go the way of Greece, or this unconscionable, unconstitutional power-grab by our elected tyrants will motivate citizens to reclaim their Constitutional rights and beat back Cerberus into its proper, specified limits.

Liebau notes Obama's subversive mendacity here:
1. Obama ran against Hillary Clinton saying that he would not support an individual mandate.

2. After he won, he said he would support an individual mandate -- but it wasn't a tax.

3. In the Supreme Court, to make his legislation constitutional, he instructed his Solicitor General to argue that it was a tax, after all -- thereby violating his pledge against a middle class tax increase.

The slaughter of innocents: Our own modern, maternal holocaust

Pharaoh, Molech, Herod, America. It may have been possible to self-deceive when the facts of abortion were hidden, but they're secret no longer.

Tens of millions of babies butchered by their own mothers in the name of convenience, commerce, and the Constitution. This is one small victory for those telling the truth about our own modern, maternal holocaust.

Judge protects videos exposing ‘savage’ abortions:
the screen cuts to a video clip in which it appears that a fetal hand reaches out of the birth canal and gloved fingers – ostensibly those of a doctor – expose more of the hand before using forceps to rip off the appendage.

Obama humiliates Marines as degenerates defile Reagan

Just another fabulous moment in Obama's heartfelt, lifelong middle-fingered "salute" to the American people.

The First Homosexual President never misses an opportunity to violate America's honor. This time, he brought a few of his sexually-deviant supporters into the White House to insult Reagan, with the Marine Corps Band providing the soundtrack to their insolence.

Notice Hart's admission that AIDS was primarily a homosexual affliction (or his own cold indifference toward Straight-Americans).

From here:
This wasn’t Segal’s first trip to the White House, having twice visited during Bill Clinton’s gay-friendly tenure. “One of the things on my bucket list was to dance with my boyfriend at the White House,” remarks Segal.”And this is the second time I got to do it. We come up to the main foyer, and what do they play? Barbra Streisand. ‘The Way We Were.’ And I thought, Are they going to play nothing but Barbra, Bette and Lady Gaga? I was waiting for ‘Over the Rainbow.’ I mean, this is the Marine band!”

Clearly, Segal, a dedicated activist but also an astute political hobnobber, wants to be invited back. But his counterparts couldn’t seem to care less. Hart posted his photo on Facebook with the caption, “F[sic] Reagan.” Strauss simply posted hers without commentary. After all, the murderous facial expression and double-barreled bird-flipping seem to speak for themselves. Comments ranged from “you forgot to add with a chainsaw” on Hart’s “F[sic] Reagan” note, to my personal favorite, “star wars … up yours,” on Strauss’s. ...

“Yeah, f[sic] Reagan,” reiterates Hart one week after the reception. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and queer people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so."
Someone whose lifestyle and agitation promote depravity and death calling someone who promoted Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness a "murderous fool"?

Now, that's ironic.

And that's all you need to know about the suicidal Left

Another reply to those delighting in the undermining of Western Civilization without realizing that when the American system of government is replaced finally with some sort of faux-secular or pseudo-religious ideology -- Communism, Socialism, Islam, or some other fascism, it doesn't really matter -- their rights will die, too:
Speaking of meds, if the anonymous coward Brainwashed or any of his multiple personalities offer something substantive, I'll respond as time allows. For now, a few points:
1) Unwilling or unable to address my arguments on the facts, and lacking the courage to admit the implications of his irrational self-loathing, Brainwashed turns to absurd ad hominem and name-calling, the (second-to-) last resort of tyrants.

2) For the record, Saudi ownership of a significant portion of Fox is not news to me (punny, but a baseless lie; Brainwashed must be desperate); jihad's agents have embedded themselves throughout all levels of American government, academia, and media. (See the bald-faced, outright lies at the California Science Center in Los Angeles and Obama's hosting the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated purpose is to bring down Western Civilization from within, for examples.)

If our brave friend had been paying attention at all, he would have known that many on the so-called Right are bought-and-sold to Islam (the natural convergence between the Left and Islam renders discussion of their ties superfluous):
-New Jersey governor Chris Christie appointed to public office a jihadist lawyer and mocked those expressing reservations about shari'a;

-Texas governor Rick Perry is in deep with a leading proponent of shari'a, having worked with him to develop Islamic propaganda for Texas schools;

-Texas representative Ron Paul thinks that if we leave Islam alone, it'll leave us alone. That flies in the face of nearly one-and-one-half millennia of the rape, slavery, and slaughter of non-Muslims in Allah's name around the world and our own experience:
"In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli's envoy, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). Upon inquiring "concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury", the ambassador replied:

"'It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.'"
(Jefferson reported this revelation to Secretary of Foreign Affairs John Jay, who reported it to Congress. America's oldest military monument is dedicated to our first effort against Islamic jihad.)

-apparent Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has spoken publicly about there being nothing inherent to Islam that inspires violence. (Though I have no reason to believe that he's a shill for shari'a, the one person most responsible for our national defense ought to know and speak the truth about the existential threat facing Western Civilization.)

-Grover Norquist, a darling of the Right, belongs to Islam heart-and-soul and has made discussion of our mortal foe verboten (see recent CPACs for examples).

In other words, the Enemy Within is found on both sides of the political divide.
3) How is it possible to "demonize" "Islamists," again? (Would Brainwashed have crowed about "the Nazis you demonize"?)

Muhammad sacralized genocide, pedophilia, rape, slavery, torture, mutilation, theft, extortion, polygyny, wife-beating, religious and gender apartheid, sedition, treason, and blasphemy, claiming that, "Allah made me do it, and you will too ... or else!"

If claiming that the God of the Bible chose Muhammad to make "holy" the violation of all Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, and Christ's Bride, the Church isn't "demonic," then nothing is.

4) I defend our God-given, unalienable rights, and I oppose anti-Semitism, genocide, pedophilia, rape, and slavery on theological grounds, yet our felicitous scholar and pharmacist Brainwashed claims that I should "stick to topics [I] actually know something about."

If there had been any doubt, that tells us all we need to know about Brainwashed.

And it should tell Brainwashed something about himself.

Another domestic skirmish in defense of the West

So, have you heard the one about two guys go to a football 'blog and a political debate breaks out?

No, it's not funny (even so, it's more humorous than John Malkovich's Siri commercial), but neither is the nescient venom with which the suicidal Left attacks anyone who believes in Man's God-given rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

From here:
@Brainwashed, Facts are facts, regardless of "belief system." Since I write in defense of every person's God-given, unalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness, and -- by your own admission -- you don't share my belief in those, then you are, by definition, "on the other side." Thanks for admitting that.

Now, since you're trying to impugn my character and judgment, let's consider my latest "rant": I noted that someone writing for the Miami Herald misrepresented the status of a bill intended to defend the citizens of Florida against shari'a.

Since that is a statement of fact, then you must support either "news organizations" lying to the public, or the implementation of shari'a, or both. Which is it? Whatever the case, you would clearly be "on the other side." (That's not a "tactic," that's called "logic.")

(To be clear, Brainwashed, I'm not defending Fox. But if I were, I'd have to thank you for admitting that stating facts is one of Fox's "tactics.")

I'd prefer we were on the same side in defense of Liberty.

An obvious case of presidential projection

Look out! Here comes some Hope and Change.
As the linked article points out, allowing massive illegal immigration takes jobs from less-skilled Americans in need of work. That's neither just nor wise as a matter of principle, but it's especially perverse during the "Greatest Economic Crisis Since the Great Depression."

According to The Daily Caller, in ignoring questions about his amnesty-by-executive-fiat, "Obama depicted the immigrants as Americans except for their legal status."

Who can blame him? That's how he got his current job.
