Pushback Against Big Government

 OPINION IN BRIEF 
George Will: "By breaking the leftward-clicking ratchet that moves steadily, and only, toward more 'pooled' sovereignty and centralization of power, Brexit refutes the progressive narrative that history has an inexorable trajectory that 'experts' discern and before which all must bow. The EU's contribution to this fable is its vow to pursue 'ever-closer union.' Yes, ever. ... Euroskepticism is rising dramatically in many EU nations. There might be other referendums. Or the EU might seek to extinguish this escape mechanism. A poll in Sweden indicated that it might follow Britain out. In France, there could be a campaign for Frexit. Such was the Remain side's intellectual sloth, it wielded the threadbare aspersion that advocating withdrawal amounted to embracing 'isolationism.' Actually, Brexit was the choice for Britain's international engagement as a nation. The revival of nationhood is a prerequisite for the reinvigoration of self-government through reclaimed national sovereignty. Hence June 23, 2016, is now among the most important dates in post-war European history."  -The Patriot Post

 Democrats Circle the Wagons on Benghazi

House Democrats released their own 339-page Benghazi prebuttal ahead of the forthcoming final bipartisan report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi, which was released Tuesday. Naturally, Democrats absolved Barack nObama and liar-Hilly Clinton of all responsibility and declared that Republicans are on a partisan witch-hunt. "We have been hampered in our work by the ongoing Republican obsession with conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality," they write. "Rather than reject these conspiracy theories in the absence of evidence — or in the face of hard facts — Select Committee Republicans embraced them and turned them into a political crusade."
          There's plenty of blame to go around for security failures before and during the attack. But as readers of these pages recall all too well, the most important point regarding this fiasco is the nObama/liar-Clinton political narrative. It's about what decisions were based on the political implications.
          Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed by al-Qaida jihadis in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 — a rather key date. They were abandoned by their superiors in a chaotic state created by foreign policy failure in Libya. Yet nObama and liar-Clinton publicly insisted the attack was a spontaneous protest caused by a YouTube video — even though liar-Clinton admitted privately it was al-Qaida. They told this political fable because nObama was running for re-election on the narrative of having killed Osama bin Laden and having decimated al-Qaida. Those shenanigans are the hard facts of the nObama/liar-Clinton political crusade. And indeed, liar-Clinton is still lying as she too seeks the White House.
          In the Democrats' report about Benghazi, the word "Republican" is mentioned 200 times. Even more bafflingly, "Trump" is in there 23 times. "liar-Clinton" is named the most at 334, but that's almost entirely defensive. The bottom line is that Democrats are circling the wagons for their presumptive nominee. And no one — not the terrorists and not the administration that failed, lied and obstructed — has been held to account.  -The Patriot Post

nObama, liar-Clinton Benghazi Arming Terrorists, US Enemies – What Are They And Democrats Hiding?

{rickwells.us} ~ The segment of On The Record deals with the White House occupant’s refusal to provide necessary documents and information to the Benghazi Committee, what was known in Richard Nixon’s day as a cover up... This is worse, Nixon wasn’t running guns and missiles, he didn’t get anyone killed and he didn’t commit treason against his own nation. Then again, the United States has never been proven to be Hussein nObama’s home nation. Katherine Herridge reports that in 2014 Congressman Trey Gowdy contacted the White House, requesting that the usurper answer a few questions regarding the Benghazi attack. They were simple questions such as what he was doing that night, when he first learned who the terrorists responsible were and whether he had ever approved a covert weapons running operation involving those sites. Herridge details proof from within the United States intelligence structure that there were weapons being tracked in transit from Libya to Syria so nObama and liar-Clinton are definitely hiding something. Missiles and guns for the budding ISIS, perhaps? Aside from the issue of the questions that Gowdy is not able to get answered, Herridge has her own curiosity as to the reason why there was such as large presence of over two dozen people in Benghazi in a CIA operation that most within the government, including senior members of the regime, were not even aware existed...  http://rickwells.us/obama-clinton-benghazi-arming-terrorists-enemies-more-cover-lies/

{rickwells.us} ~ Former liar-Clinton White House Secret Service officer Gary Byrne has a new book being released, “Crisis of Character,” which details his experiences in the White House with the liar-Clintons... The woman who is the Democrat nominee for president is profiled as an explosive, ill-tempered, mean and nasty individual, foul-mouthed and possessing a hair trigger. Sean Hannity interviews Mr. Byrne, who guarded and interacted with both liar-Clintons on a daily basis.  There are many instances he recounts as examples of liar-Hilly Clinton’s violent temper and her completely phony public persona. Byrne describes liar-Hilly Clinton as “exhibiting some very dangerous behavior.” He describes her impatience with policy issues which take time to get resolved, demanding that things be fixed right now. He says, “She was like two different people. Again, she’d be nice and polite to everybody when the cameras are on and then when they were off she was this cold, distant person – almost instantly. That’s what I’ve experienced quite a few times.”...  http://rickwells.us/former-clinton-secret-service-officer-tells-all-explosive-truth/

A new report released by the American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, found complying with the agency’s rules now requires 188 million paperwork hours, the equivalent of 95,000 Americans working full time for a year. “Years of regulatory accumulation, especially under the nObama administration have pushed EPA’s paperwork burden to its highest level in history,” the report, written by Sam Batkins, said. “Year after year of new regulatory costs have not only translated into shuttered power plants, but also new reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

{sharylattkisson.com} ~ The U.S. military response in Benghazi, Libya was perplexingly inadequate the night Americans were attacked by Islamic extremist terrorists, Sept. 11, 2012... That’s one overarching conclusion reached by two leading Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee after a year and a half long investigation.  “Until now the administration has led us to believe the military did not have assets—men or machines—close enough or ready enough to arrive in Benghazi in time to save lives,” said Republicans Jim Jordan of Ohio and Mike Pompeo of Kansas. “An asset that could have made a difference would have been armed drones. And as the Committee learned, it would have been relatively fast and easy to arm a drone.” Jordan and Pompeo released a 48-page supplement to the Committee’s much lengthier official report, also out today, numbering more than 500 pages. Jordan said he and Pompeo “felt the need to draw conclusions from facts,” and address motivations behind the nObama administration’s Benghazi-related actions; something he said the Committee’s main report stopped short of doing...  https://sharylattkisson.com/house-benghazi-committee-completes-work/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SharylAttkisson+%28Sharyl+Attkisson%29

{constitution.com} ~  If we look at the illegal population, we can see the outcome of allowing them to stay in America. Many break more laws after breaking the law to enter the country... The problem is not their nationality or their willingness to work; the problem is that they are lawbreakers. This is their attitude about things and how countries should be run. They think that if a law does not suit them, they just break that law. And this is exactly what they are calling on the nObama administration to do with illegal amnesty. The group, seeing that there were no legal means to reach their goal, chose to block the way to ICE headquarters. And they are calling for nObama to do the same. They want him to be corrupt and gum up the process. Not according to the Constitution or any other standard. Not1More wants nObama to break the law...Ya, sure.

House Benghazi report slams
administration response to attacks
.
{foxnews.com} ~ A damning report authored by the Republican-led House committee probing the Benghazi terror attacks faulted the nObama administration for a range of missteps before, during and after the fatal 2012 attacks... saying top administration officials huddled to craft their public response while military assets waited hours to deploy to Libya. The report released Tuesday pointedly blamed a “rusty bureaucratic process” for the slow-moving response the night of the attack. The report said despite orders from President nObama and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to deploy, the first military force did not do so until more than 13 hours after the attack started. The report said one anti-terrorism security team known as the FAST unit sat waiting for three hours in Rota, Spain, as Marines changed “in and out of their uniforms four times,” and even debated whether they should carry personal weapons, according to one witness. All together, the report said, “it would take nearly 18 hours” for that team to move...

{wnd.com} ~  It started out with hints of official, United States governmental oppression of Christianity as soon as same-sex “marriage” became a bullet point for activists... little things like “discrimination” complaints that those choosing alternative sexual lifestyles somehow weren’t applauded as they thought they deserved. Then it became confrontational for Christians who were simply choosing to live by their beliefs – beliefs similar to those held by the nation’s founders. Bakers were penalized for not promoting homosexuality, ditto for photographers and venue owners. Government officials publicly vilified their Christian faith and ordered them, in some case, re-educated. Now two rulings have been released that cement the American court system’s determination that Christians must not be allowed, under threat of penalty and punishment, to live as they believe in business or in public life...  http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/courts-say-living-by-christian-faith-illegal/#!

Pushback Against Big Government

{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ Elite big government supporters are shocked by the Brexit vote, and they’re not sure what it means. Conservatives believe the smaller the government, the better, so I’m pleased. Elites in Europe fear more countries will pull out of the European Union, while elites over here are finally sensing similar unrest in America.
.

Moving from big-government Massachusetts to rural Maine in 1977, I quickly learned that local control was prized. There was, for example, a movement to withdraw my new town of Lovell from the Maine School Administrative District #72 which it had joined only a few years before. Lovell had run its own schools for a century and a half and bristled under the new bureaucracy. There had been a choice of three high schools: Fryeburg Academy, Gould Academy, or Bridgton Academy, but no more. I was Director of Special Education, a district-wide job requiring me to travel around to six elementary and junior high schools to supervise staff. The position was created because of a federal mandate and it was all about meetings, paperwork, phone calls, paperwork, and more meetings.
.

.
The new district borrowed to build the New Suncook School in Lovell. It wasn’t paid off yet so that was an issue in Lovell’s pulling out. It was overcrowded already and just down the street was the old, unused Annie Heald School, a wooden building owned by the town. The superintendent asked me to attend a Lovell Budget Committee meeting to inquire about the district leasing it. I was new in town, so I introduced myself and made the pitch. The Yankee Republicans who dominated the committee in those days looked at me silently for nearly a full minute after I was done. “Any questions?” I asked. One older guy with sharp eyes and arms folded across his chest said, “Yeah, I have a question.”

Annie Heald School on right

“Okay,” I said.

“Ten years ago, when the superintendent wanted Lovell to join this new district, he said the Annie Heald School was a firetrap and they had to build a new school. Now, after the old school has been sitting there for ten years with nothing done to it, they say they want to use it again?”
.

.
“Good question,” I said. I had no idea about any of that and felt that I’d been set up. Locals believed they’d been manipulated by the “bigger is better” argument bureaucrats use, and maybe they had. The effort to pull out failed though, because people like me with young families were moving up from Massachusetts and other states. We thought ourselves better educated and believed bigger was better too. I do not believe that anymore.
.

.
Shortly after, I was elected a selectman and served with two Yankee Republicans who thought Lovell people knew what was best for Lovell, that their judgement was better than the state’s or the federal government’s and they could govern themselves more effectively if they were left alone. After nine years I became convinced they were right, and that was one of the realizations pushing my political perspective from the big-government left to the small-government right where it has been ever since.

I supervised two federal programs — Title I and Special Education. Since then, the feds have taken over the school lunch program and now curriculum as well. More tax revenue goes to Augusta and Washington and what little comes back has strings attached — most recently, regulations concerning transgenders in locker rooms and bathrooms.

Back then, I was one of only three administrators and two secretaries in a district with 1200 students K-8. Now there are Now there are 1160 students but double the administrators, way more secretaries, way more teachers, much bigger buildings, much more paperwork, many more meetings, and a much bigger budget. Is there more learning going on for all that? After thirty-four years teaching in the district, I have to say no, and I could make a strong case that there’s actually less.

Shut it down

The federal government has also taken over health care — doing about the same with that as they have with schools. Working with the United Nations, the feds are planting refugees all over the country — a hundred here, five hundred there — often without informing local cities and towns they’re coming. Students in Manchester, NH schools speak 82 different languages, a severe strain. The mayor there has asked the feds to stop but they won’t. Washington knows what’s best for Manchester. When Lewiston, Maine’s mayor said his city couldn’t accept any more Somali refugees, big government liberals called him a racist. There are similar problems in Portland, where one out of seven people are foreign born.

Nigel Farage to EU president

Similar problems have been plaguing the UK and other EU countries for decades, and they were a major factor in the Brexit vote. Big government elites running the EU say the UK should take still more refugees. Ordinary Brits want local control and last week they shocked the elites by voting to leave the EU. More countries will follow. As liberal elites push for more central government power, ordinary citizens are pushing back.
