Obama’s Big Lie

To say he is “gaslighting” people is seriously understating the situation.

Former President Barack Obama was in Virginia Saturday. During a campaign rally for Democrat Terry McAuliffe, Obama said, “We don’t have time to waste on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media pedals to juice their ratings.”

I try not to get angry every time some left-wing socialist makes an absurd statement. But this one really burns me up!

During his presidency, Obama pushed racial divisions to the brink, and he pushed the culture war by redefining the meaning of marriage to a whole new level. Now he’s telling us the culture war is “phony”? To say he is “gaslighting” people is seriously understating the situation.

The culture wars are raging across Virginia right now, and it’s all because of the left. It’s the radical left that is pushing critical race theory in our schools.

And in Loudoun County, Virginia, it isn’t just critical race theory, which is teaching people to hate. The radical transgender agenda resulted in the rape of two girls by a boy who used his transgender rights to gain access to the girls’ restrooms.

When one father demanded justice for his abused daughter, Loudoun County school board officials denied the assault ever happened. They lied about it and covered it up. Then they smeared the father, who was dragged out of a school board meeting, saying he was violent, and possibly a “domestic terrorist.”

The local prosecutor tried to have him thrown in jail over misdemeanor charges of “disorderly conduct” and “resisting arrest” — you know, the kinds of charges that are routinely dismissed against Antifa thugs who riot and burn down businesses. Only later did we find out that his daughter was traumatized and scarred for life.

And the former president of the United States has the gall to tell the people of Virginia that it was all just “a trumped up, phony issue.” This is just another example of the left accusing their opponents of exactly what they are doing.

It’s the left that changes pronouns and then silences you if you refuse to lie and dare to speak the truth.

It’s the left that puts pornography into your public school library.

It’s the left that allows boys into girls’ restrooms.

On and on it goes.

But if you dare object, they accuse you of stoking “fake controversies.”

An Apology, Sort Of…

Late Friday, the National Association of School Boards (NASB) issued an apology for its shameful letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland that compared concerned parents to “domestic terrorists.” But it wasn’t a genuine apology.

To begin with, the apology was from the NASB’s board of directors to its own members, meaning school boards around the country. While acknowledging that there was “no justification for some of the language included in the letter,” it never specified what language was so offensive nor did it apologize to the parents of America.

Perhaps most importantly, the NASB’s board of directors has not, to my knowledge, requested that Merrick Garland repeal his memo directing the FBI to investigate parents who attend local school board meetings.

His outrageous action was based entirely on the NASB’s letter, and Garland was unable to cite any justification for ordering the FBI to take action beyond the content of the letter itself.

By the way, Attorney General Garland claimed to be totally unaware of the Loudoun County rape case I mentioned above. He told members of Congress under questioning last week, “It sounds like a state case, and I am not familiar with it.” Garland added that the FBI was not investigating that case of sexual assault in a high school girls’ bathroom.

But the girl’s father is likely under FBI investigation because Merrick Garland thinks concerned parents at school board meetings represent a dangerous threat. Once again, my friends, our freedoms are under siege.

Nevertheless, the fact that the National Association of School Boards is in retreat is good news. Your activism and the truth carried the day! It’s a small victory, but a victory to be sure.

Taxing Wealth

As you know, Democrats are struggling to get Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” agenda across the finish line. They have reportedly pared it down to about $2 trillion but they have run into trouble with how to pay for it.

The latest idea that seems to have the most support among Senate Democrats is a modified wealth tax on the unrealized capital gains of billionaires. It would reportedly apply to approximately 700 people, and may well be unconstitutional.

While I haven’t done a precise count, I suspect the vast majority of those 700 people are left-wing Democrats like George Soros, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg. So, by all means, tax away!

But we know that every confiscation of wealth always starts by going after the very top and in short order, when it doesn’t work as expected because there aren’t enough wealthy people to pay for everything the left wants, it starts creeping down to middle- class and working-class Americans.

Moreover, wealth taxes generally don’t work. Most European nations have tried them, and most have repealed them.

Ideas and proposals for the left’s reconciliation bill are changing by the minute as Democrats scramble to keep their side together. Whatever this ends up costing, $3 trillion, $5 trillion or $1.75 trillion, keep this in mind: There’s been zero Republican input.

It was drafted behind closed doors by the administration that said it was bringing openness and transparency to Washington. It is being amended behind closed doors at Biden’s Delaware home.

No one is asking Republicans for their input, not even our “moderates” like Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney, who are always tempted to give Biden their votes. There is zero interest from Biden’s gang in bipartisanship, unless it means total capitulation to their agenda.
