About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

The Tiger Woods -Chris Christie Connection

"The president's dishonesty, incompetence, vengefulness and lack of moral compass lead many to suggest that he is not fit to lead."  OK Congressman Jim Bridenstine concluding an address on the House floor last spring.  And no he was not talking about Chris Christie.

In watching Chris Christie's one hour & forty seven minute news conference, where reporters drilled him on his involvement, if any, concerning intentionally caused traffic jams to local entrances in Fort Lee, NJ to the George Washington Bridge I couldn't help but think how there was never any interest from the citizenry or the media for a media spectacle of this sort centered on BO's involvement about such things as Fast & Furious – a botched federal gun running sting operation that allowed weapons to reach Mexican drug gangs that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans & @ least one U.S Border Agent, the IRS abuses of power centered on the Tea Party, the Benghazi murders & cover up, the Justice Department's surveillance & seizure of AP reporters' telephone records, & the Justice Department investigating itself after AG Holder personally signed off on seizing phone & e-mail records & subsequently naming FNC reporter James Rosen, who claims he was exercising a reporter's basic First Amendment rights, as a criminal "co-conspirator" in a national security leak investigation involving a secret U.S. report on North Korea.  More timely is the memoir by Defense Secretary Bob Gates that claims BO sent troops into harms way (even today) while all the while not believing in his own Afghanistan strategy – he just wanted to get out starting January 20, 2009.
 
The closest we came to such a media spectacle involving BO came last May when a press conference was billed by conservatives as the most important of BO's term in that he would be drilled by the White House press corps on these matters (except the Gates memoir) like never before.  Instead BO made it a joint press conference with Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Erdogan who provided political cover in the rainy Rose Garden – see above photo.  BO took few questions & provided no answers worth repeating.  The only spectacle was the marines holding umbrellas.
 
Now I am certainly not condoning any involvement Christie may have in a vengeful pay back to the Democrat Fort Lee mayor for not endorsing him in the NJ governor's race last November but the media will certainly find out what involvement Christie did have – & that is the point.  Most hateful in this entire matter is BO's Justice Department saying they will investigate the traffic jams to see if they are indeed a criminal matter.
 
The country is not being served well by a press corps who has tremendous interest in traffic jam stories if they take down a Republican & no interest in the above list involving BO where people were killed.  Of course there is not interest in these issues either by the great majority of Americans.
 
Thanks to a long time subscriber who sent the account below re Tiger Woods & BO that puts the media's selectivity of coverage in perspective.
 
Isn't it amazing that, within only one week of Tiger Woods crashing his Escalade,
The press found every woman with whom Tiger has had an affair during the last few years?
And, they even uncovered photos, text messages, recorded phone calls, etc.!
Furthermore, they not only knew the cause of the family fight, but they even knew it was a
9 iron from his golf bag that his wife used to break out the windows in the Escalade.
And, each & every day, they were able to continue to provide America with updates
On Tiger's sex rehab stay, his wife's divorce settlement figures, as well as the dates &
Tournaments in which he would play.
 
Now, Barack Hussein Obama has been in office for five years, yet this very same press:
· Cannot find any of his childhood friends or neighbors;
· Or find any of Obama's high school or college classmates;
· Or locate any of his college papers or grades;
· Or determine how he paid for both a Columbia & a Harvard education;
· Or discover which country issued his visa to travel to Pakistan in the 1980s;
· Or even find Michelle Obama's Princeton thesis on racism.
They just can't seem to uncover any of this.
Yet, the public still trusts that same press to give them the whole truth!

  1. Excellent points. I also thought it was interesting how the Press and the nation turned on Tiger Woods for his extramarital dalliances. However when Bill Clinton did the same thing, thereby exposing the U.S. to blackmail the press gave him a free pass, thereby earning their "presidential kneepads".
