And a president who does not dispense justice is not fit to be president.

Obama could not manage a one-car funeral, yet he and his cronies are pushing the lawlessness of a dictatorship of this country.

Another excellent piece by the great Andy McCarthy. Thanks for posting.

As Legal Insurrection’s Bill Jacobson notes, the 2008 Obama campaign was caught illegally hiding not $20,000 but nearly $2 million in irregular contributions (in addition to dragging its feet on the return of millions more in suspect donations). You probably don’t remember that because — I know this will shock you — the Obama Justice Department didn’t prosecute anyone.

Yes, 0's Dept of Just Us overlooked those pesky overseas donations.

Do we not live in a police state?

I don't understand why so many freepers think elections alone will turn our country around.

I WHOLLY agree with you!!!

Our ‘elections’ are scams nowadays anyway. Nothing more than ‘shows’ put on for us to THINK we’re participating.

We’re not.

“Shows,” exactly.

For practical purposes, Scotus and Obama write the laws we live under. The House doesn’t set or even audit spending, and the Senate is Dear Leader’s rubber stamp. Only the form, the shell, the outward institutions of our republic remain. Their purpose is to condone, to grant credibility, legitimacy to His Will.

Marx cannot be indefinitely grafted onto Madison.

Revolts aren't won by votes.

Obama and Dems know how to scam the donations. They know that they will have to pay a fine for any illegal or over the limit donations when you have a Dem President with a Dem DOJ.

Obama’s campaign turned off their security check on their website which allowed persons with names such as Mickey Mouse Disneyland, Florida to make a donation. They get the infusion of cash up front to buy those ads, TV time, etc. After they win the election, no big deal to pay 500K fine when you pulled in 600 million (as in Obama’s case).

Personally, I think you should forefeit half of your haul. That would make a change.

If our country is to be turned around it must begin at the local level, at the very roots of the tree of liberty.

Looking to Washington is not the answer.

Dinesh D’Souza’s history makes me hesitant to come to his defense for the same reason I was hesitant to come to Newt Gingrich’s defense for years after his marital turmoil. I became a Newt supporter at one point last primary season, but Newt had had time to deal with his problems.

Dinesh had a very messy infidelity, divorce, misrepresentation of the facts, and eventual release from Kings College just a little over a year ago.

Do others’ issues get overlooked when it comes to campaign contributions? Sure. Should Dinesh D’Souza have his overlooked? If they can be proven, then D’Souza is showing that something is still out of control in his life.

We should be praying for the man. He is so gifted.

I totally agree, we should be praying for this man.

I wasn’t aware of his problems in his personal life. I know he is a Christian and the closer we are to God- the harder the Devil tempts you.

I too was a Newt supporter- but his wife’s wealthy image was hard to over-come as well as divorcing his wife when she had cancer.

"I don't understand why so many freepers think elections alone will turn our country around."

There is a psychological term for this. It is called Normalcy Bias. Most people, including Freepers cannot conceive, much less, do what is necessary once the solution is totally outside the established, normal society, methods for a solution.

Read this and my reaction is... Gawd, these pukes in Washington make me sick! Almost every problem we're facing has it's roots in Washington. And they want to make more laws to address these problems, more laws that they won't enforce and which will only worsen the problems.

And now immigration reform. If enacted it turns us into a Third World economy and enables a huge leap towards a pure socialist government. This is the hill to die on for me. If we lose this it's over.

On Obamacare:

It is the most massive fraud in American history, and there will be no investigations or prosecutions.

Persecuting the Left’s foes and foils may be “social justice,” but it is not justice. And a president who does not dispense justice is not fit to be president.

I like that. Anyone n The House with the guts to stand up and say it?

I can see Steve Stockman doing it. He's said as much a number of times.

read an article; a few years ago, on how the Marxist were
going destabilize American electorate faith in the voting process.
It began w/ Slick Willie's motorer-voter scams, voter fraud and
packing the polls w/illegal immigrants wetbacks and weaken voting
req'ds..no photo IDs..and making the voting process disrespectful
that ppl. wouldn't vote..well the Marxists have succeeded amazing well.

This is probably worth keeping in the limelight. D’Souza is a long time gadfly to the left.

Kinda sorta, though the turnout rate COULD be improved among the “sane set.” There’s room for bumping it up a few dozen percent. And especially for the PRIMARIES.

Pity parties are not just a lefty game in America, folks.

If Barack Obama and Joe Biden both simultaneously keeled over of heart attacks, would that change the composition of the rest of this ship of fools? (Though at least we might get a respite of sorts in the form of a President Boehner.)

When a government whose constitution says “WE THE PEOPLE” goes kaflooie... maybe the problem is the oversigned, after all????
