Larry Elder Liberals’ 50 Years of Dreadful Domestic Policy

Townhall

For the past 50 years, the Democrats — and many Republicans who should know better — have been wrong about virtually every major domestic policy issue. Let’s review some of them:

More evidence emerging that that Constitution supporters are considered threats

A report published today by Kurt Nimmo states that a Department of Homeland Security

fusion center in Florida conducted surveillance on Ron Paul supporters and other political groups. A law enforcement sensitive bulletin dated 4 June 2010, issued by the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange, identified  one event hosted by Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty that was subjected to official intelligence monitoring by that arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Nimmo notes that the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange was established with the assistance of an $850,000 Department of Homeland Security grant, which is your tax dollars at work. The center is specifically tasked with looking for terrorist leads.

Where Are the Stories On the Death of the Democrat Party?

Big Journalism

November 2nd was not a pendulum swing, it was the beginning of a movement.

The activist old media and their Democrat friends act like this is just another fad that will come and go quickly—just like they saw in 2008 with their Dear Leader elected as President. Since they saw the rise and fall happen to them, then it must happen to us. Oh, their inability to see themselves is always entertaining.

When Republicans lost in 2008 there were stories everywhere about the Death of the Republican Party.  The one in Time Magazine was most enjoyable. While this article talks about the possibility of a comeback, Michael Grunwald can’t mention often enough that Republicans are an “endangered species” and even calling them the Donner Party. Who’s eating their own now?

 

Republicans went more conservative as a party and just completed perhaps the most amazing sweep of this nation in our lifetimes. 63 House seats, 6 Senate seats, 12 Governorships and nearly 700 State seats went Red in 2010. While repeating those numbers seems unlikely in 2012 (we’re just looking mainly at that Top Spot and a bunch of those Senate seats up for grabs), few honest observers could doubt this move to the right will continue.

Obama Destined to Be a Footnote in Presidential History

American Thinker

Barack Obama has set a course that will leave his legacy as no more than a footnote in American presidential history.  For all of the bluster and glory, for all of the pomp and circumstance, and yes, for all of the anticipated hope and the promised change, the whirlwind of hype and expectation surrounding the president a mere two years earlier has virtually dissolved.

He was the man destined to save this country from his predecessor’s failures.  He was the man who would end the war in Iraq, finish the war in Afghanistan, and shut down the prison at Guantánamo Bay.  He was the man charged with rescuing the faltering American economy.  He was the man who would usher in a post-racial era in an allegedly inherently racist American society.  And he was the man who had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize based not on tangible accomplishment, but simply upon these very expectations.

 

On all of these accounts, President Obama has been a striking failure.

Obama to enact end-of-life planning for Medicare

WASHINGTON — When a proposal to encourage end-of-life planning touched off a political storm over “death panels,” Democrats dropped it from legislation to overhaul the health care system. But the Obama administration will achieve the same goal by regulation, starting Jan. 1.

Under the new policy, outlined in a Medicare regulation, the government will pay doctors who advise patients on options

for end-of-life care, which may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment.
