George Washington and other persons of interest — Congressman McCotter’s Top 10 American extremists.
(Page 2 of 2)
In the 1970s, an icon of many in the current administration thought he was under surveillance by the federal government for his political beliefs and activities. His friends told him he was paranoid. Yet the icon continued to hear a clicking noise during his phone conversations; and to see oddly dressed men apparently tailing him in public. Still, no one believed him and, as the icon later admitted, even he began to question his sanity.
But he wasn’t insane; and, presently, portions of the icon’s FBI file remain unavailable or heavily censored by the government.
Doubtless, Obama administration officials in the DHS and elsewhere joined the rightful hue and cry against the Nixon administration’s persecution of the icon, whom they believed to be a political enemy. Inexcusably, however, these same Obama administration officials have forgotten the lessons of the past; and are now using the power of the state to silence dissent and chill free speech.
One is compelled to question if, in its paranoia, the current occupants of our federal government’s Executive Branch intend to restore to a list of potential domestic extremists and threats the name of John Winston Ono Lennon?
“Strange days, indeed….”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
