Good Riddance to Crooked, Racist Rubbish!

Something unexpected but quite wonderful
happened in the waning days of September:
Attorney General Eric Holder resigned.
Out of the blue, or so it seemed, Obama's
AG tendered his resignation to his boss and
long-time friend and political ally.

Holder's resignation drew gasps and sorrow
from congressional Democrats while evoking
cheers from the congressional GOP. Holder
and the latter had a tenuous, tumultuous
relationship over the six years that Holder was
the nation's top law enforcement agent (now that
fact makes your faithful Peasant gasp!).

As U.S. Attorney General, Holder was a busy bee.
He refused to investigate, let alone prosecute, the
Black Panthers in Philadelphia who were using
intimidation tactics to frighten away white, and likely
conservative, voters form the polls on Election Day
in 2012 when Obama was running for re-election.
He gave us the bedlam and confusion, along with the
shooting death of a U.S. Border Patrol officer, of
Operation Fast and Furious, which was allegedly
to show how guns were coming into our country via
the southern border and being used by criminals.
And part of that horrible plan was to let some guns from
the U.S. travel down to Mexico into the hands of criminals
there who would sell or bring the guns with them into our
country to commit crimes with said guns. Holder may well
have, at the very least, given his seal of approval to the IRS
and its unconstitutional persecution of conservative political
groups which dared to dissent over the president's policies.
And he has demanded federal investigations and related
meddling in the gun crimes in individual cities and towns,
i.e. Ferguson, Missouri, in which black criminals were
shot dead by white police while making not a peep about
black criminals fatally shooting white as well as black
victims. By the by, these are just a few of the "highlights"
of Holder's record as Attorney General.

While testifying before Congress on some matters, Holder
bristled and spouted off at Republicans accusing them of,
among other things, disrespecting Holder just for his skin
color (he's black), and doing the same to President Obama.
Sound familiar? That's the stale, tired, groundless charge
that the left-wingers make against us conservatives when
we state the facts and employ logic in our criticisms of
Obama and his presidential performance. We have the
facts, the logic, and the truth, and the lefties don't.
So they engage in childish name-calling and baseless
accusations. Holder is apparently no different.

The only people who will miss Eric Holder are his fellow
lefties, including his patron, President Obama. Let's hope
that Obama will not appoint anyone even worse than Holder to
take his place.

Celebrating the Unconscionable

Planned Parenthood of Colorado gave an award to
their Aurora abortion facility for --- sit down with a
strong drink, my wonderful readers --- exceeding
abortion visits versus those of the previous year, so
say multiple news reports. This is proof, as if any
more such proof were needed, that PP is first and
foremost in the business of performing and encour-
aging abortions; their constant claims of being a
"women's health" resource is a flimsy smokescreen.

Establishing abortion quotas for its clinics, and handing
out awards for surpassing them, is unconscionable.
But then, we're talking about an organization that
devalues human life for the sake of convenience,
for a price. Gee, I wonder if the Ku Klux Klan
has, now or ever, handed out awards to its
chapters for lynching a certain number of black
people, or if Hitler's concentration camps vied
for a prize from Der Fuhrer himself for achieving
a goal of some number of Jews killed?

If we as a nation do not once again prize human
life, and work to eliminate human problems rather
than human beings, then our nation should lose its
right to call itself civilized. There is no point to your
saddened Peasant writing a long and plaintive essay
here, because we know what course we have to take
to make this happen. We must continue our efforts to
educate the public about what abortion really does,
and what its consequences are. And we must work
for the election of public officials who will work to
eradicate this gruesome practice and cast it upon the
dung heap of history alongside slavery.

Our nation has made mistakes along the way, some of
them truly awful. But it has always endeavored to make
amends, starting with deinstitutionalizing the practices
which begat these dark deeds. We dare not fall short
on abortion, or else we cease to guarantee life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness, for without the first of
these the second and third are irrelevant.

Is The Constitution Still Relevant? (Part II)

Your faithful Peasant has had a remarkable stroke of luck,
with a cancellation of an important appointment by the
person I was to get together with today I have a windfall
of time, so I thought I'd use it to our advantage, my great
and wonderful readers. So without further delay, here are
my thoughts and observations on President Obama's
controversial Immigration Speech of November 20.

President Obama stated that our immigration system is
broken. Of course it is; he and his fellow Dems broke it.
They not only refused to continue to build the border
fence along the U.S.-Mexican border which was begun
under the presidency of his predecessor, President George
W. Bush, They placed restrictions on our border patrol
personnel and ICE (Immigration and Customs
Enforcement), lessening their latitude in effectively
carrying out their duties in policing our borders and
seeking out criminals who have illegally entered our
country, especially criminals involved in drug trafficking.
The president went on to say that the number of people
trying to illegally cross our borders is at the lowest
levels since the '70s, buttressing his words proclaiming
"Those are the facts!". Gee, since when has this president
ever gotten chummy with facts about anything? And
with so many people having crossed over to come here
just in the years he has been in office, resulting in five
million illegal residents (whom he re-terms "undocumented
aliens", another one of his politically correct euphemisms
which he employs to sugar-coat a great wrong!) residing
in our country, although your detail-minded Peasant does
not have statistics on hand at this time to prove or disprove
this assertion I have a strong feeling that once again our
president is playing fast and loose with the truth.

Obama went on to say that his program for immigration
reform would, among other things, give more resources
to our border guards to aid them in their duties. What
would help the border guards more would be if the
president would lift the restrictions on how they execute
their duties so they can round up more illegals as they
sneak over the border. He further stated that he would
make it easier for graduate students, entrepreneurs,
and highly-skilled immigrants to remain here and
"contribute to our economy". Obama sure hasn't made
it easier for our own entrepreneurs to build and maintain
their businesses with his outrageous taxes and red tape
either preventing new businesses and accompanying
jobs from being created or has choked off business
expansion. Would he give breaks of any kind to the
entrepreneurs from outside our country that he has
not (and likely would not) give ours? Moving on,
Obama stated that his program would "take steps
to deal 'responsibly' with the millions of undocumented
immigrants already here"; some of these steps we know
already, including putting them on a "fast track" to
attain citizenship, cutting out the costs and some of the
steps, such as physical check-ups complete with chest
x-rays to look for heart and respiratory diseases. The
check-ups have long been employed to ensure that we
would not be admitting anyone into our country that
could possibly spread disease, or at least be a burden
on our society, but apparently Obama thinks that
such measures are somehow discriminatory.

What was most galling about his speech was his
proclaiming that his program would ensure that our
immigration laws would be strengthened and better
upheld; that "we're a nation of laws."

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGH!

I had to let that out; I know that you, my equally
exasperated readers, share this sentiment! This same
president who very recently claimed that he couldn't
wait for Congress to act by passing an immigration
bill of its own, that "I have a phone and a pen,"
meaning that he was ready to circumvent Congress
with an end-run around it and the Constitution in
order to get his act passed, sanctimoniously boasts
that ours is a nation of laws! This man is a dictator
wanna-be! He forced his rotten, unworkable, expensive
health care scheme upon us despite our demands that
he scrap his so-called Affordable Health Care Plan
and start over in drafting a truly affordable, workable,
and efficient plan that we could more easily participate
in, ignoring our will and wishes as if we were mere
peasants rather than the citizens that we in fact are,
and now he is taking the same tack with his awful
immigration bill, which has woefully little support
from the populace, who want for starters the closure
of our southern border. With a closed border, we
could more easily deal with the many illegal aliens
already here without having to face continuing waves
of more illegals entering our country, otherwise we
would have absolute chaos in trying to maintain our
country and its laws, And Obama wants to push ahead
with his program, which is essentially executive
amnesty. And we all have seen what comes of the
abuse of executive orders by a mendacious power-
monger for a president! Executive orders were never
meant to take the place of Congress and its function as
the legislative branch of our federal government; it is
solely for the expediting of bills signed into law by the
president, who represents the executive branch of
our federal government. This is spelled out in the
Constitution, that pesky piece of paper which the
president finds so irritating, so confining, so big of
a wet blanket to the statist partying and good-timing
that he wants to revel in. Obama scolded Congress
in his speech, demanding "Pass a bill, ... so the actions
I take will no longer be necessary." Heil, Obama!

Obama continued by saying that no deportations of
undocumented immigrants would take place. Fair
enough. It would take a super-monumental effort to
round up, bring into immigration court, and go through
the entire procedure to deport all of the five million
such immigrants already here, some having been here
since before Obama's ascendancy to the presidency.
But what would he do with those who engage in
criminal activity while here? And what of those who
came here to further carry out the illegal drug trade?

His Imperial Presidential Majesty made an amusing
comment when he then said that "Americans are tired
of gridlock." Is that why we elected a Republican
House in 2010 and a Republican Senate last month?
I think that the majority of the American people want
gridlock, so that Obama will be restricted in what all
he wants to ram down our throats during his remaining
time in the White House. He was elected in good faith,
but has since acted in bad faith toward us, so we have
sent Republican majorities to both chambers of Congress
to chaperone our wild-with-power president.

In closing, Obama really outdid himself with quoting a
line from Scripture: "We should not oppress a stranger,"
saying that we were strangers too (meaning our forefathers
who arrived here long ago). What laws were there, in those
days, that our ancestors violated in coming here, I wonder?
Then he finished with saying "God bless this country we
love." If President Barack Hussein Obama truly loves our
country, God help us if he should ever decide to hate it!
The sanctimony, the hypocrisy, and the arrogance was
neck-deep throughout his speech!

Now, let us contact our elected senators and representatives
in Congress and tell them to stop this self-styled autocrat,
and to act with alacrity, if our republic, the Constitution,
and constitutional rule of law is to continue to mean
anything.

The Peasant Takes Five

Your faithful but harried Peasant is taking a little
time off to tend to a pile of urgent personal business,
including some business which will have an impact
on my career. It's all OK; no need for panic or any
concern. I'll be back with you, my wonderful
readers, as soon as possible. It shouldn't be an
inordinately long period of time.

And I promise you, my fantastic readers, that I shall have
for you my observations and impressions of President
Obama's immigration speech for you when I return!
I have, in the meantime, played his speech over and
over several, tortuous times to get every point, every
morsel, every crumb of our Crumb-in-Chief's talk
so that I can form my thoughts and relate them to you
here at our meeting place. I don't mean to have you all
on edge awaiting my remarks, it's just that some things
suddenly cropped up and I must attend to them, striking
while the iron is hot, so to speak. You all have my gratitude
for your patience!

In the meantime, enjoy the offerings of these fine
online versions of some conservative publications
which I know you enjoy as much as I do:

Freedom Weekly

National Review Online

Thank you for your kind understanding and indulgence!
Your grateful Peasant will return soon!

Thanksgiving Best Wishes!

Your favorite Peasant wishes you, my fabulous readers
a most happy, beautiful, joyful Thanksgiving! We all
have so much to be thankful for, including (but not
limited to!) our wonderful Thanksgiving turkeys and
accompanying goodies; our families and friends to share
them with; our homes, our health, and most certainly
our great and wonderful country the United States of
America! A country where we can be what we want to be,
do what we want to do, speak our minds, and choose our
public servants in free and fair elections. Now, we know
that this doesn't sit well with some among us. But these
unhappy people should realize that among our countless
freedoms as Americans is the freedom to pack up and
go live in any other country on the planet where they
think life is better! They may as well; they are never
going to change our dear country into the kind of place
that they would prefer. And why don't they?

God bless!

Is The Constitution Still Relevant? (Part I)

Friends, tonight President Obama (or should I now
refer to him as King Barack?) is going to unveil his
immigration reform plan which will, among other things,
legalize 5 million heretofore illegal aliens currently in our
country.

Obama is going to issue an Executive Order to make this
terrible plan come into existence; after all, he has bragged
that he has a pen and a phone. He has said that he shall use
these items to get what he wants done if Congress will not
help out. Make no mistake: this man thinks that Congress
is an impediment to his plans, that the will of the American
people mans nothing, that the American people are mere
peasants, and that the Constitution is Cottonelle! Ever since
he first took office in 2009 this farce of a president has done
all that he could to relax immigration laws to the point of
being meaningless, in order to bring in people from economically
impoverished countries not so much to give then a fresh new
beginning in a prosperous new land but to get them situated
as cheap labor in the most basic of jobs, to get them enrolled
in various federal social benefit programs (especially the so-called
Affordable Care Act, a/k/a Obamacare), and --- when they
finally become U.S. citizens or, perhaps before then, knowing
this president and his political party, to have them remember
who gave them all these goodies come future elections.

Congressional Republicans are already vowing to stop Obama
from carrying out this end run around both Congress and the
Constitution. Obama's action will precipitate a constitutional
crisis in our government and our country. For those of us who
have strong stomachs and steely nerves, we may be witnessing
the end of our constitutional rule of law, and perhaps the end of
our great country as we have always known it. I shall return to
comment on Obama's speech soon, as we shall need to thoroughly
examine the entirety of his speech which shall I'm sure include the
main points of his controversial program. We shall also assess
the potential ramifications of same, as well as what strategies
Republicans and horrified Democrats of good will can employ
to thwart this assault on the Constitution and affront to the
We the People; polls show that Americans oppose more lenient
immigration laws by from 65-80%! Hispanics oppose this, by the
way, by around 55-45%, so squishy Republicans on Capitol Hill
may want to rethink Hispanics as a sure source of electoral
support by voting for such measures (potential GOP presidential
candidates, take note!).

Your beloved Peasant shall return very soon with my impressions
of Obama's speech. Be strong.

Veterans Day Thoughts

Friends, today is Veteran's Day, the day in which
we honor our current and former military service
men and women who sacrificed so much for us
and our way of life. As Memorial Day is the day
to remember our fallen and long ago military
people, Veterans Day is for the ones still with us
in the realm of the living.

Now, your faithful Peasant remembers ALL of our
military people on both of these days, and does so
openly and unabashedly. As a matter of fact, I give
thanks for everyone, past and present, alive and
gone to glory who have so served. As I believe in
gratitude for all good things and people in life,
I give thanks each and every day that I am a free
and well-protected citizen of the United States,
with a constitution which spells out my rights
under our law, and a military which defends
it all. But for this day, my great and wonderful
readers, let us all show our gratitude for these
blessings which we enjoy as Americans by
personally thanking family, friends, neighbors,
co-workers, and acquaintances who have so
served. Shake the hands of these brave souls
and thank them for serving. Tell them that you
think of them and their daunting work when
you vote, when you write a letter to the editor
of a newspaper or a magazine regarding a political
issue, when you attend a town meeting or similar
gathering to discuss such issues with your elected
representatives, when you work on a campaign
of a candidate for office whom you favor or
give money to same, or to an organization which
works on behalf of a cause that you support.
For these wonderful people help to preserve these
and our other freedoms.

And keep them in mind and show your gratitude
for them any and all the days of the year! For
freedom is not just a sometime thing, it is a
fixture in our lives as Americans, and shall be as
long as we always have fellow citizens who believe
that our freedom and our way of life is worth defending
and as long as we recognize and reward these fine
folks for their hard work at doing so. If we should
cease to be grateful to them, our freedom will someday
cease as well; for what we are not grateful for, and
take for granted or, worse, resent and disdain we will
lose.
