Today is Armed Forces Day. We remain the proud and the free because these Patriots — American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coastguardsmen — have stood bravely in harm’s way and remain on post today. For this, we, the American people, offer our heartfelt thanks and prayers for you and your families.
Liberal Bullies Get a Taste of Their Own Medicine
Barronelle Stutzman is the owner of Arlene’s Flowers. When one of her customers, Robert Ingersoll, a homosexual, asked Stutzman to supply the flowers for his upcoming wedding with his male “partner,” she refused. She cited her religious beliefs.
Stutzman never refused Ingersoll service when he ordered flowers for personal use. It was the idea of homosexuals marrying that she opposed.
“When it came to doing his wedding, I said, ‘I could not do it because of my relationship with Jesus Christ.’ He thanked me and said he respected my opinion. We talked and gave each other a hug and he left,’ she wrote.”
Instead of going elsewhere, Ingersoll sued. The ACLU, the multi-million-dollar fundraising organization, got into the act and joined the suit along with the State of Washington. So a 70-year-old woman who owns a flower shop is being sued by the full power of the state of Washington and an anti-Christian bullying organization that “has net assets of almost 300 million dollars.”
Why should anyone be compelled to sell any service to anyone for any reason? If the KKK had come in to order flowers for an event, do we think Washington’s Attorney General would be bringing a suit? How about a white supremacist group? NAMBLA?
What if an anti-abortion group wanted to purchase flowers from a florist that was fervently pro-abortion and the owner refused the business? Would the ACLU have taken the case?
Homosexuals are the real discriminators. They are the real bullies. Off-the-wall pro-homosexual marriage supporter Michael Kinsley writes in the New Republic:
From Godfather Politics.
Seems someone went off his meds again.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office on Friday said President Obama’s 2014 budget proposal would add $5.2 trillion in deficits over 10 years.
The agency said that compared to its baseline scenario, the Obama budget would reduce projected deficits by $1.1 trillion over 10 years. The White House had claimed $1.8 trillion in savings using its own analysis.
The CBO’s baseline assumes that automatic sequestration cuts remain in place for nine years, whereas the White House assumes they are eliminated.
While it uses a different budget baseline than the White House, the analysis of individual proposals are broadly consistent with what Obama officials projected. The CBO reports $3 billion more in spending than the White House claimed and $79 billion more in revenue over 10 years.
The Bath School Bombing (This day in 1927)
Over the course of several months leading up to May 18, 1927, disgruntled school board member Andrew Kehoe hid hundreds of pounds of explosives inside the Bath Consolidated School in Bath Township, Michigan. That day, after destroying his farm—which was slated for foreclosure—he detonated the explosives inside the school and set off a bomb in his vehicle. The massacre is considered the deadliest act of mass murder in a school in US history. How many people were killed?
Obama’s Emptiest Benghazi Talking Point
His promise to bring the perpetrators to justice rings more hollow as time passes.
On September 12, 2012, President Barack Obama vowed to “bring to justice” the perpetrators of the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya. On October 26, 2012, Obama said his “biggest priority” was bringing the “folks” in Libya responsible for murdering four Americans to “justice.” Tick, tock, tick, tock.
While White House press secretary Jay Carney sneers at the GOP’s “obsession” with what went wrong at the besieged Libyan consulate, Obama continues to ply his emptiest talking point. On May 13, 2013, more than eight months after the bloody disaster, Obama snippily reminded reporters that he had told us all back in September that “we would find out what happened, we would make sure that it did not happen again, and we would make sure that we held accountable those who had perpetrated this terrible crime.”
Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Justice delayed is justice denied.
A little more “obsession” from this administration with hunting down the jihadist killers would be a good thing. How about a little more anger directed at the perpetrators and a little less rage aimed at the conservative press? Nah. Team Obama seems more singularly focused on blaming its opponents, smearing whistleblowers, and deriding those who are trying to hold the president to his words, words, words.
Perhaps with their newfound skepticism toward the lying liars of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the former lapdogs of the White House press corps will start asking questions like this: Where the hell is Sufyan Ben Qumu, also known as Abu Sufian bin Qumu?
Qumu, a suspected Libyan Islamic Fighting Group militant with ties to the financiers of the 9/11/01 attacks, was held at Guantanamo Bay for six years. The Bush administration foolishly handed him over to the Qaddafi regime on the promise that he would remain imprisoned. In 2010, Qumu was granted amnesty and released.
