Or, Where’s the fire?
The smoke screen that the Progressive Left has made is truly mammoth this administration. It’s a cover-up of organized mass destruction of real ‘change’.
Rep. Tom Price (R., Ga.), a conservative leader in the House, concedes that, in some cases, Republicans are being outflanked. “The administration is pushing so many things so rapidly it’s difficult to concentrate on all of them,” he said.
And while we were all busy getting reasonably upset at another ridiculous healthcare bill –THAT INCLUDES ABORTION, page 110 – that has nearly 2k pages and wondering how we were going to read it and understand it….suddenly the Hate Crimes Bill was pushed through without a bit of fan fare and giving the gay community more carte blanche to accelerate now legal hate against the straight and/or Christian community:
The Wall Street Journal notes: The legislation gives the Justice Department the power to investigate and prosecute an expanded definition of hate crimes and to pre-empt local police when Washington decides too little is being done about a crime. The legislation has long been controversial. In fact, it took 14 votes in Congress to pass it. Opponents believe the measure is an unwarranted expansion of federal power. They also say it creates a new category of violent crime that isn’t necessary because the acts it addresses would be crimes regardless of motivation. Mr. Price, the congressman, called it an “unconstitutional thought-crimes law.”
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (HR1256) gives the FDA power to regulate tobacco products. Regarding the new tobacco law, the Food and Drug Administration and allies in Congress have been seeking regulatory authority over tobacco since the early ‘90’s; tobacco is neither food nor drug. And since tobacco isn’t ‘safe’, it can become illegal. Does the new administration realize what this will do to tobacco farmers? Is the administration willing to allow these farmers to sell their business at a reasonable profit to the government? But even that being said, it is not up to the government to regulate what we eat, drink or ingest. This bill is another step toward socializing America.
The Omnibus Public Lands Management Act designates millions of acres of federal land as wilderness – which sounds like a nice idea until they deemed over 1 million acres of Wyoming land to be off-limits to natural gas and oil development. However when the land was surveyed, it was clear that the land held large oil deposits and natural gas deposits that could help with our energy independence from foreign oil. Interestingly, this is land made by God to support us that live on His earth and the Government will make sure we can look at it from a distance.
Be aware, be prepared…while this president is in office and doing the bidding of the Progressive Left while they have a chance, we will see more junk get passed and signed than ever before. The Liberals found their perfect patsy, President Barack HUSSEIN Obama. In the end, trees will have more rights than we do.
