Senator Rubio: “It’s in God’s Hands” & Teddy Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena”

Theodore Roosevelt, who grew up a sickly boy, became a Medal of Honor winner after charging up San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War leading his troops to victory. In Paris, France on April 23, 1910, former President Theodore Roosevelt gave one of his most famous speeches delivered at the University of Paris (the Sorbonne,) which included this key paragraph:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. 

Obama Not Serious About Immigration Reform

At least, Senator Marco Rubio, the Republican Cuban-American from Florida  --  who is leading in most of the 2016 Republican presidential national polls  --  is putting his political career on the line as a member of the Senate immigration reform group called the “Gang of Eight” which is routinely condemned by a lot of conservatives.  On the other hand, the president  --  who does not have to run for reelection again  --  is “hiding under his desk” (Bill O’Reilly’s description of those people unwilling to come on his Fox News show to debate him) with regards to serious immigration reform. 

Campaign to Save German Homeschooled Family From Nazi-Like Tyranny

For some strange reason, Germany has maintained Adolph Hitler’s Nazi policy of persecuting families who want to homeschool their children which is a very strong and growing movement in the United States.  And also for some strange reason, the Obama administration  --  but maybe not so strange considering their own overbearing (some say tyrannical) federal polices  --  seems to support Germany’s tyrannical oppression of families who homeschool in that nation. 

This is evidenced by the fact that the Obama administration is working overtime to deport German refugees, Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their 6 children, evangelical Christians who are homeschooling their children in Tennessee.  The tyrannical German government is demanding that the United States deport the Romeike family  --   who paid stiff fines when they lived in Germany because they refused to stop homeschooling their children  --  so that they can face probable stiff jail sentences along with their children being shipped off to orphanages.   Two years after they began homeschooling their children in 2006, the Romeikes faced Gestapo-like visits from the German police who were tasked to force the Romeike children to attend public schools.

Obama’s 2014 Zealous Goal Will Ensure His “Legacy” Failure

The headline of the top story in “The Washington Post” on Sunday was:  “Stymied by a GOP House, Obama looks ahead to 2014 to cement his legacy.”  What that means, in plain English, is that America will be in gridlock for at least the next two years.   When the Republicans took over control of the House of Representatives in 2010, Barack Obama’s left-wing agenda was stopped in its tracks.  However, like most two-term presidents, Obama is concerned about his legacy.

Obama can claim only one major achievement for his legacy.  ObamaCare was rammed through Congress with no Republican votes in the Senate or the House  --  also a first for a major new entitlement program  --  and is deeply unpopular with the American people and it is only going to get worse. 

Obama desperately wanted to continue his radical agenda in the last Congress, but was stopped cold after the historic Republican victory in 2010.  He did, however, force the Republicans to vote for his $620 billion tax increase legislation after his reelection which also had some $330 billion in spending increases.  Even so, a minority of Republicans in the House voted for the gigantic Obama tax increase which had virtually unanimous Democrat support.

Illegal Immigration

America is a great place to live and allows people to legally enter the country. 11 million estimated Mexicans are illegal that is an invasion and calls for a military response.
