Declaration of Dependence [Mark Steyn]
Steyn Online ^ | 4 July 2014 | Mark Steyn

In my weekly conversation with Hugh Hewitt, we looked at America at home and abroad on the nation's 238th birthday. I suggested to Hugh that, from Obama's point of view, everything was proceeding according to plan:

MARK STEYN: Mr. Medvedev was, if you recall, Vladimir Putin's sock puppet as the nominal leader in Russia. And Obama was overheard saying 'Well, this'll be my last election, and afterwards, I'll have a lot more flexibility.' And we're now actually seeing what that flexibility means. We're seeing it in the retreat of American power not just across the globe, but actually the vanishing, the evaporation of American sovereignty even at the southern border. We're seeing it in classic banana-republic stuff in the IRS... Even the king's tax collector is simply a crooked stooge on his boss' behalf. And I think that is actually the flexibility that he was discussing with Medvedev. That's the flexibility applied on the domestic scene - that he's actually quite open about... The speech he gave yesterday or the day before, saying 'You know, who needs this separation-of-powers business? Just clear it out of the way, I'm going to go ahead and do what I want.'

~Meanwhile, this post by John Hinderaker set me wondering where the Obama Democrats' promised "transformation" of America is likely to end:

The population of Mogadishu is moving to Minneapolis, through the miracle of chain immigration. I don't know whether there is any limiting principle to this or whether all of Mogadishu will one day reside along the Mississippi, but in any event, the Somali influx is already impacting Minnesota politics.

By which John means that, in a close race between Phyllis Kahn and Mohamud Noor (incidentally, I'm a connoisseur of Mohammed spelling variations, and that one's beaut), a Somali-born Minneapolis elections judge has announced that a fellow Somali's vote was cast not for the "old Jewish lady" but for "our Muslim brother".

This is a Democrat primary: Ms Kahn is a doctrinaire leftie incumbent and Mr Noor is an assertive Muslim challenger. No Republicans need be involved in this civil war: it's the internal contradictions of the rainbow coalition. But on America's national holiday hearing impartial election clerks sounding like corrupt tribal officials in the Horn of Africa is a stirring testament to diversity.

Canuck Steyn is more of an American than any of the scum that the Kenyan surrounds himself with.

If we’re going to make foreigners president, I’d pick him any day over the scumleech in the White Hut.

In a landmark Residential fiat legislation the White Hut has decreed that henceforth, July 4th shall be called “DEPENDECE DAY”

And may God have mercy on us all.
