More narrative wars from the crony media: Obama administration thinks “sovereign citizens” are as bad or worse than ISIS

Are there nuts in the United States? Yes, for sure. Do some of these people tout a philosophy of personal sovereignty? I am positive that some do. Are these nuts serious threats to the country? I don’t think so.

What you have in the attached report from CNN is an effort to turn a narrative which has gotten out of the hands of the White House spinmeisters. The insanity (and I think that is an appropriate word) exhibited by ISIS has galvanized many in this country. Terrorism (for good or ill) is now a serious issue again for many American voters.

The thing is, that ISIS is a radical Islamist group makes Obama uncomfortable. The president refuses to acknowledge the fact that ISIS is a Muslim entity. That Islam is a fundamental component of ISIS’s identity. The group refers to itself as “The Islamic State” after all. It seems pretty obvious to me. But not apparently to our president who didn’t march in protest with the other leaders of the world in Paris after the Charlie Hedbo attacks, and who lectured people at the White House prayer breakfast recently on the atrocities committed in the name of Christ. Basically equating the actions of ISIS to past crimes committed in the name of the Church. Obama also suggested that perhaps Americans should get off of their “high horse” when it comes to religious atrocities.

No one’s perfect you see. So hey, get off your high horse.

The Party of Small Government: Republican governors across the country are trying to raise taxes

When push comes to shove, it’s easier for many supposedly “conservative” governors to propose a tax increase with supposed benefits for his or her state than it is to simply let people keep their own money. The money they earned.

Whenever we go through these revenue increase phases it is always remarked that it’s been such and such number of years since the last increase so “we’re about due.”

No we’re not. We are not “due.” Just because the state’s piece of the pie hasn’t enlarged in a while doesn’t mean that for some reason it should now.

Writers in ‘free’ countries now share surveillance concerns with ‘not-free’ brethren

I remember when I was a kid hearing stories of surveillance in places like East Germany and the USSR and they haunted me. The idea that the government had an ever watchful eye trained on the citizenry just seemed insane and a horrible way to live.

One of the big differences between us, “the free world,” and the communists (I was told) was that we didn’t have a Stazi or a KGB. Our government didn’t fear its own people. We were a free and open society. We were a free people.
