Three Amigos Summit

Last Wednesday, the three “head honchos” of the North American countries met in Ottawa, Canada’s capitol.

President Nieto of Mexico, Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada, and President Obama were all there to declare solidarity on critical issues facing their nations. And what were these “critical issues,” exactly?

We know the top two at least, because of the massive emphasis placed on them:

  1. “Gay Rights” – various homosexual iterations, particularly “transgenderism” (gender dysphoria) – and Social Justice
  2. Man-Made Climate Change, the most creative plan for wealth redistribution ever devised by progressive man

Down-list was the effort to conquer Western Civilization by occupation, disillusionment and destruction, delivered by radical Islamists. (Now simply called violent extremists.)

Maybe that meeting should have been titled “The Three Stooges Entertain Ottawa.”

The Caracas Effect

Individual liberty and personal responsibility are two of the drivers for prosperity in America; free-market capitalism is the powerful economic engine.

In our republic, the government’s role within our “system” is to expand the success of the private sector, to enhance the peoples’ prosperity, to ensure a safe, stable, healthy civil society.

Socialism doesn’t preserve or enhance civil society or generate prosperity; it devours these with powerful, centralized control.

Witness the inevitable results of a socialist utopia in the economic implosion of once-prosperous Venezuela. Its capital, Caracas, is now a black hole of chaos and crisis.

No explanation comes from the Sanders campaign regarding the failed “workers paradise.”

Supression

May was another economically anemic month with a mere 38,000 jobs created.

An additional 458,000 people dropped out of the workforce, bringing the job participation rate to 67.6%, a near 38-year low.

As the ten-year treasury yield dropped to 1.71% last Friday and the First Quarter 2016 GDP “growth” was readjusted to 0.5%, the Obama Regime’s agenda of economic suppression continued on its destructive course.

Promises, Promises

We heard it back in 2000, in Bush vs. Gore. And again in 2004, the voices were raised when Kerry challenged Bush.

The same celebrities repeated the oath in 2008… If Barack Obama lost to John McCain in the presidential election they would flee the country.

Now, in 2016, if Donald Trump wins the presidency many celebrities swear they will emigrate to Canada: Whoopi Goldberg, Cher, Rev. Al Sharpton, Rosie O’Donnell, John Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson, and Lena Dunham have all made the promise: “Trump wins, we’re gone!”

If only they will keep their word this time. (Don’t hold your breath, they are progressives!)

Please Explain

Why is it that our children are forbidden to read the Bible in a government school but, if they land in a federal prison as an adult, are encouraged to read it?

Couldn’t the formerly accepted practice help to avoid the later incarceration?

And why do we take an oath upon the Bible when testifying in a court of law but, outside that very courthouse, a display of the Ten Commandments is “illegal”?

Wouldn’t more exposure to the laws displayed outside keep some from ending up on the “receiving end” of the law inside?

“Push Off!”

After an appropriate amount of time on his knees before the Saudi princes, explaining why their perception of his alliance with the Mullahs of Iran was all wrong, President Obama headed to Great Britain to bolster his friend, Prime Minister David Cameron, in his intention to keep Great Britain a member of the European Union (EU).

Queen Elizabeth II was celebrating her 90th, which gave the President and First Lady an excuse to appear sincere, while castigating common Brits for their desired exit from the EU.

Obama’s arrogance and pomposity was on full display as he derided the British for even thinking of their own sovereignty.

How could they refuse to help him in the systematic suffocation of the cultures of their fellow members in the EU by waves of Muslim “migrants”?

Why would Britain abandon its role as partner in his “global climate change” ruse? Couldn’t they see that redistribution of wealth is necessary to punish the rich Western economies?

He even warned of U.S. trade actions, should the British leave the EU: “The UK might be at the back of the queue…”

Sorry, Mr. Prime Minister; you invited him. We side with your countrymen in their wishes to our president: “Push off!”
