We used to be a nation of laws. Today, we are a nation of lies. From the “president” and his appointees and hired thugs on down, there has not been an utterance in the past five years that has not been lies, or at best, a rank distortion of the truth. The Democrat Party has followed the “president’s” lead, making wild, fantastic charges and slander the rule for their public statements. Of late, the Republican misleadership, aka the Republican Establishment, has taken to lying as grossly as the Democrats, all of whom now are attacking American citizens who still believe in government the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
Back before the 2012 election Barack Obama said Al-Qaeda was defeated and on the run.
But, that was during an election year.
Today, Al-Qaeda is on the run and holding parades.
Al-Qaeda members hold a parade recently in Syria.
Yesterday, at Bagram Air Force base, Obama finally admitted that Al-Qaeda affiliates are evolving and are not so much defeated and on the run.
So our combat mission here will come to an end. But our obligations to you and your families have only just begun. The al Qaeda leadership may be on the ropes, but in other regions of the world al Qaeda affiliates are evolving and pose a serious threat. We’re going to have to stay strong and we’re going to have to stay vigilant.
According to recent reports, GM just recalled another 2.4 million vehicles this week, bringing the total number of recalled GM vehicles this year to a record 13.6 million. USA Today got right to the point when it asked, “Are there any GM cars that haven’t been recalled?”
GM knew about serious problems with the ignition switch for years, going back to at least 2007. At that time, GM had hard data from multiple crashes showing that some of its ignition switches had failed to function properly. The U.S. government officially bailed out the automaker in December of 2008. Throughout the five-year period of U.S. government ownership, nothing was done to address the deadly switch. According to one timeline of events, GM’s new CEO, Mary Barra, claims she did not even learn of the problem until December of 2013, which just so happens to be when the federal government sold its final shares of GM stock (at a loss of $10 billion, naturally).
Even though the company had data demonstrating a faulty ignition switch for years, it didn’t initiate a full investigation or recall until February of 2014, two months after the government sold its stake in the company.
Our nation is in the safest and most ethical of hands.
