Mayor faces a first-ever runoff.
Cities: The problem with socialism, Margaret Thatcher once noted, is you eventually run out of other people’s money. In progressive Chicago, that’s hit home as Moody’s has cut its credit rating to two grades above “junk.”
Chicago’s finances are staggering under the weight of an unfunded pension liability that Moody’s Investors Service has estimated at $32 billion, eight times the city’s operating revenue.
Chicago has a $300 million structural deficit. And Illinois law requires the city to up its 2016 contributions to its police and fire pension funds by $550 million.
Most transparent administration evah! Recall his promise:
Ever since the moment he entered the White House his administration has been one of the most secretive and least transparent since the Nixon years and now we get even more evidence of this fact.
In 2012 Mark Levin’s organization filed a FOIA to the EPA to discover if they were hiding the implementation of certain regulations prior to the 2012 election. What did the EPA do?
Numerous conversations I have with folks have shown me that there are a number of people out there that not only believe that President Obama is an anti-American President, but that he is a Muslim. In the end, it is all speculation, for Barack Obama has never given anyone indisputable evidence regarding his faith, which is why Scott Walker accurately indicated he had no idea what Obama’s faith is.
However, regardless of if you believe that Obama owns a Muslim prayer rug, or if you think he’s a Christian with a “Reverend Jeremiah Wright” G-Damn America splash of crazy in his religious thinking, or if you support the idea that Obama is a Godless Communist that rejects faith but appeases Islam because it serves his purpose, his actions and words tell a very interesting story that suggests he personally feels hostility towards Christianity, and is sympathetic to the followers of the false prophet Muhammad.
There comes a time in the course of human events that it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands that have connected them with another. America is fast hurtling toward that time.
The United States was founded on the republican principles of federalism (states’ rights) and representative government. Today’s government is “constitutional” in name only.
The undocumented usurper currently despoiling the peoples’ house has for six years shown utter disdain for the founding document. In a town hall meeting on Wednesday last, Barack Obama bragged that he has expanded his authorities “under executive action and prosecutorial discretion.”
But Article III of the Constitution lays out the chief executive’s authorities quite explicitly. There is no room for “expanding” them within the scope of the Constitution. The President is neither tasked with nor authorized to write law or change it. That falls solely under the scope of Congress, as outlined in Article I, Section 1. The executive’s role under Article III, Section 4 is to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
