The Real Reason Obama, Dems Desperately Push Healthcare Bill

There is much here that is beneath the surface, my friends. Use your head and connect the dots.

Conservative Examiner will help in that process today.

We already know it's about government control and power, but there is one more reason largely ignored. Be informed!

News on Hollis Wayne Fincher Court Case

The MOWCA Blog provides all of the latest news on the court case against Hollis Wayne Fincher on federal firearms charges.

In this segment information is provided on the latest decisions and motions in the case, which is being conducted in the 8th Circuit Court.

Our prayers are always needed on behalf of Mr. Fincher and his family.

Blame Game--'It's All the Fault of the Tea Party Movement'

No sooner had the crazed engineer in Austin, Texas plowed his airplane into the offices of the IRS than the state-run media was busy blaming the Tea Party movement. As Michelle Malkin reports, even the Washington Post got in on the act, insinuating that the perpetrator was a right-wing lunatic.

However, the Post conveniently left out the part of the perpetrator's letter stating that he hated capitalism, religion, businesses, and even quoted from the Communist creed.

In short, the man was a Leftist. But more importantly, he was nuts, and that has nothing to do with one's political ideology.

Democrats Announce They Will Ram Through Healthcare--Serious Unintended Consequences Will Result

Despite the fact that the American people have overwhelmingly rejected the proposals of Barack Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress to take over the U.S. healthcare system in the name of 'reform,' Congressional leaders announced late Friday that they intend to ram it through using the 'reconciliation process,' which allows the majority party to pass bills with only 51 votes rather than the usual 60 votes.

The Democrats no longer have a super-majority in the Senate to block filibuster attempts on the part of Republicans. Thus, they do not have the votes to pass healthcare legislation.

But using the 'nuclear option' of reconciliation they can pass the 2400-page bill without a single Republican vote in either the House or the Senate. So much for 'bipartisanship' Obama always talks about.

Mark my words, if they do this, there will be serious 'unintended consequences' on the part of an already outraged public.

The Passing of 'Big Al'

He preferred to be called 'Big Al.' Alexander Haig, the army general who became a top adviser to at least 3 Presidents, including Nixon, Ford, and Reagan, has died.

Haig is known primarily for 2 comments he made during 2 administrations.

During the Nixon fiasco, when a reporter asked who could have been responsible for the infamous 17-minute gap in the tapes on which the President recorded all conversations, Haig responded, 'I think that perhaps it was a sinister force.'

During the Reagan Administration, immediately following the shooting that sent the President to the hospital for surgery, Haig told the media gathered at the White House, 'I am in charge here.'

Of course, actually Vice-President George H.W. Bush was in charge. But Bush was not present at the White House, and Haig believed that in the aftermath and uncertainty of the assassination attempt, somebody in the Administration needed to be the face of steady leadership during the crisis. In the absence of Bush, Haig became that person.

Despite these 2 incidences for which he is most remembered, Al Haig was a key leader in government and a powerful adviser during some of America's most troublesome years. He is certainly deserving of America's gratitude.

We regret his passing, and our condolences go to the members of the Haig family.
