An impeccable source has provided me with a copy of a draft Executive Order that the White House is apparently circulating for comments from several government agencies. Titled “Disclosure of Political Spending By Government Contractors,” it appears to be an attempt by the Obama administration to implement — by executive fiat — portions of the DISCLOSE Act.
This was the bill introduced last year by Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Chris Van Hollen to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC. The bill had onerous requirements that were duplicative of existing law and burdensome to political speech. It never passed Congress because of principled opposition to its unfair, one-side requirements that benefited labor unions at the expense of corporations. Democratic commissioners at the Federal Election Commission then tried to implement portions of the bill in new regulations. Fortunately, those regulations were not adopted because of the united opposition of the Republican commissioners.
Thank the Lord He has risen and it is a glorious Easter season yet again. Jews and Christians have much to celebrate this week. Our nation’s core, founding documents and history reflect our Christian traditions and faith. These values and beliefs have built up this nation to be the number 1 super power on earth. This week we celebrate our God and His amazing gifts to our world. Not all celebrate or protect these traditions as they should however.
Under the leadership of President Obama, our Commander and Chief, in Afghanistan, U.S. soldiers who were sent much desired Bibles from back home were ordered to burn them because they might inflame the natives, those fundamentalist or ‘devout’ Muslims. Since they were in a Muslim country it became military policy to burn them. It gets even better as the throw up swells in my mouth. Their policy is to burn trash and that is what the military labeled the Bible gifts as, trash.
Barack Obama has committed American lives to building an Islamic state in Libya. In making their case for U.S. intervention in Libya, conservatives who support the action generally acknowledge that the biggest problem with it is what may come after Gaddafi. However, they then dismiss this concern by minimizing the presence of jihadists and Islamic supremacists among the Libyan rebels, and pointing to a U.S. intelligence study that purportedly shows that there is no significant presence of jihadists among the rebels. Unfortunately, that’s not really true.
