The title of this piece is owed to Mr. Mark Steyn. The observation, however, should not be news to anyone. America is, officially, living a nightmare that makes The Texas Chainsaw Massacre look like a picnic orchestrated by pixies. If the topics presented are frightening, the media’s performance is worse. Facts are either hidden from us or are perverted into something they aren’t. Two stories that appeared this week are offered as evidence.
The former: Senator Ted Cruz (R. Texas) this week released information about six cases that were brought by the Lyin King’s administration to the Supreme Court. The Court dismissed them. These cases were attempts by the government to grab unheard of control over individual freedoms. In six, separate cases, the federal government attempted to:
• Electronically track (mandatory GPS on vehicles) Americans, without their consent and without cause.
• Divest persons of their private property without making fair compensation.
• Dispense with a statute of limitations on incidents that transpired years ago, in order to initiate lawsuits.
• Mandate who churches chose as ministers.
• Override state laws based on presidential caprice.
• Fine the public without a fair hearing.
Did you know about this? Think this information is scary? How about this: Those cases were all ruled on and unanimously dismissed in 2012. It bears repeating: So horrendous were these attempts at seizure of control that the Lyin’ King’s own Supreme Court Justices made them unanimously kaput. Yet only Senator Cruz’s office publicized this news. It was subsequently covered in a small article in CNS News. Senator Cruz applauded the fact that the Supreme Court had knocked down six cases of attempted tyranny. He said those cases demonstrated “…an astonishing view of federal power on behalf of the Obama Administration.”
He was, however, grateful: “Luckily, we do not have to live in that America…” Perhaps he should have added “Not yet.”
