1988 Candidate Dukakis: “The fish rots from the head first”

The Democrat presidential nominee in 1988, Massachusetts Governor Michael S. Dukakis, said about the ethical standards of the Reagan Administration, “There’s an old Greek saying … the fish rots from the head first. It starts at the top.”  Dukakis went on to say that scandal and misconduct had become “almost an epidemic.  It’s the guy at the top who has to be held accountable.”

However, the ethical standards of the Reagan Administration were pristine compared to the cesspool of ethics scandals and the rampant lawlessness of the current Democrat administration.  Dukakis could have been describing the current occupant of the White House as the number of major presidential scandals continues to accelerate under Barack Obama.

As the American people are now finding out  --   little thanks to the “see no evil” mainstream news media  --  because of the president’s frequent attacks on his political opposition, his underlings, including apparently all the way up to his chief of staff, have been shading the truth; lying to the American people and to the news media, and are committing crimes in the name of their president.

Trying to Change the Subject

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann accused the Obama administration of orchestrating yet another information dump on a “Friday dump day” at the end of last week.  Indeed, this was one of their most clever Friday dumps yet.

Two days following shocking revelations about what is arguably the worst presidential (cover-up) scandal in American history, the BenghaziGate scandal  -- involving the dereliction of duty by the Obama administration regarding the September 11, 2012 Islamic terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the preventable assassinations of Obama’s Ambassador to Libya; his fellow diplomat, and two Navy Seals  --   the Obama administration tried to change the subject to what has become another new Obama scandal.   

Senator Ted Cruz: Future Majority Leader?

Canadian-born Ted Cruz, freshman Republican senator from Texas, can never be president of the United States.  On the other hand, he can be Senate Majority Leader. 

Senator Cruz seems to be taking the opposite path to Republican congressional leadership than has his fellow Hispanic, fellow Reaganite, and fellow Tea Party hero, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL.  The latter senator sat on the back benches in the Senate chamber for most of his first two years in the Senate beginning on January 2011 until stepping into the spotlight.  And what a spotlight that has been, including giving the response last week to the president’s state of the union speech.

When is the Republican Spending Spree Going to Stop?

Since November’s election, which gave the Democrats the White House and the Senate and the Republicans the House of Representatives, there have been two major pieces of legislation on the floor of the House of Representatives; the first, a big spending and taxing bill, and the second, a big spending bailout bill.  Both times, the Republican-controlled House passed the bills with a very small number of Republicans voting for them. The Republican leaders could have, and should have, refused to bring these bills to the House floor for a vote. In the first of these two big spending bills, the Republican-controlled House also passed the biggest tax increase in some 20 years; Barack Obama’s whopping $620 BILLION tax increase legislation.

When the Tea Party and conservative movements gave control of the House of Representatives to the Republicans in 2010 with a huge pick-up of 63 new seats,   --  after the GOP had lost majority control in 2006 because of their prolific spending  --  and control of the House again with a large majority last November, there was no way conservatives believed that the Republican Party would repay them with two gargantuan back-to-back spending bills.

Occupy Wall Street: AnarchyLite?

The news reports this week that three self-described anarchists  --  along with two more of their comrades in the state of Ohio  --  plotted to blow up a 4-lane highway bridge near Cleveland over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park was astounding.  The fact that this group of anarchists/terrorists had ties to the Occupy Wall Street movement is not as shocking, since there have been countless descriptions of some of those associated with the Occupy movement being anarchists ever since the movement began last year. 

These terrorists/anarchists/Occupy movement activists carried flags associated with anarchist groups according to news reports.  Interestingly enough, the day on which newspapers reported that the FBI arrested these characters  --  charged with conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials   --   is the very day the Occupy movement held more demonstrations around the nation including protests at Wall Street in New York City.  In addition, yesterday is the most important day to the communist movement:  May Day.  That, in itself, says all you need to know about the Occupy movement, much of it funded by the billionaire George Soros and his ilk. 

Tea Party Should Support the Ryan Budget

Since the new federal budget was introduced this week by the young conservative chairman of the House of Representatives Budget Committee, Congressman Paul D. Ryan, Republican from Wisconsin, there has been a lot of discussion in conservative circles  --  especially amongst Tea Party supporters  --  on whether or not the Ryan budget is conservative enough and balances the budget fast enough.

The fact that the Ryan budget would take between 25 and 30 years to balance the gargantuan federal budget gave this author  --  who, when a congressional chief of staff, saw this rising Republican star when he was a very young snot-nosed legislative aide to Congressman (now governor) Sam Brownback, R-KS, and who was highly impressed with Paul Ryan from the beginning   --  some pause.

What Has the Occupiers Come Down To?

One must realize a ‘movement’s’ objective before they protest themselves, join the group, or even support their actions watching them on TV. What is their long term goal? Is yours the same? Are their protestations doing any good? Pollen particles may be an apt description.

‘Occupy’ protests, at over 30 cities countrywide, have been on a rampage. But comparisons of Tea Party gatherings, and Occupy protests are imminent. The Tea Party does not like the socialistic tendencies of the Obama regime. The Occupiers screamed “exploitation by capitalism”.  At [workers.org] Workers World Party, you’ll see signs saying, “A job is a right; capitalism doesn’t work”.
