One of news stories of the past week was about a rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask as part of his gig. Considering the rich history of political satire that has always been a part of American culture, one would think this was not such a big deal. For three nights, the crowds cheered and life was set to continue on. But then Perry Beam posted his embarrassment on Facebook about how bull-chasing in effigy made Americans look bad to his Taiwanese exchange student, and someone gave him a microphone. Suddenly, what is essentially a free speech and political satire issue became falsely charged as RACIST! Resignations ensued, the clown has been banned from the venue for life, the Lt. Governor got air time, and the bull hit the mainstream media’s fans.
There is silence from the normally glib White House. Coupled with last year’s “Trayvon could have been my son,” rhetoric, it is now clear to anyone with half a brain that Obama relishes it when people use race as a distraction. Exploiting his ethnicity is one of the few things he does well. Whereas a leader of good character would have wanted to discard the race card as quickly as possible, Obama has chosen to leave it in play. And THAT is how all this relates back to Benghazi.
If Benghazi is a phony scandal, as proved by no one being fired; if Fast and Furious was a phony scandal, as proved by AG Holder retaining his job; if the IRS targeting was a tiny incident contained in Cincinnati, as proved by Lois Learner’s continued collection of pay while on administrative leave; if the deaths of SEAL Team 6 and others is not a scandal, as proved by no reprimand when Biden painted a target on them; then surely the rodeo incident is a REAL SCANDAL because people are losing jobs. That is how the logic works. Isn’t it? At least that is how the racism exploiter Obama rationalized it.
You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of the rodeo clown’s eye. (Paraphrased from Matthew 7:5)
It is the real scandals the President dismisses as phony, not racism, that are the reasons the crowd cheered. The cure is not to restrict the First Amendment Right to Free Speech. The cure is to stop doing scandalous things.

Dear Speaker Boehner:

You called him a traitor, but if YOU had been doing your job, sir, Edward Snowden would not have felt compelled to expose the warrantless surveillance and data-mining.

It has been reported that the NSA is downloading 1 trillion communications on the Internet per month.

Let me tell you what a TRILLION is:
A million seconds is just under 12 days. A billion seconds is 31 years. A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.

How can you possibly think NSA’s actions are Constitutional?

Let me tell you what the Constitution says:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

We learned that the NSA is systematically monitoring the Internet posts and telephone conversations of U.S. citizens.

Your defense of this spying was that 9 out of 10 people in the briefing room were lawyers. ARE YOU STONED? Having to have even ONE lawyer in the room ought to be a BIG warning sign that something may be sketchy. Ninety percent is Red Alert!

Your job is NOT to “work together” to destroy America. It is NOT your job to do the apologetics for a President who has no fear of God. YOUR job is to be the CHECK and the BALANCE. You are supposed to be calling for an investigation of the Benghazi lies and asking for resignations. Your job is to question the three Generals and an Admiral who were fired by Obama in the wake of it all. Your job is to demand that the IRS is fully vetted. Your job is to shred the funding of Obamacare. Your job is to support a pro-job tax system. Your job is to open a serious look at the many, many questions about Obama’s passport, social security number, selective service papers, school funding, and birth certificate and end that scandal with a fully transparent Congressional Investigation. Your job is to strengthen America, not dilute it by refusing to guard her border and deport criminals.
But instead, your knuckle-dragging, kowtowing, Republican leadership has aided and abetted the destruction of any responsible representation of the people in American government.

The real traitor is the person you see in the mirror, not Edward Snowden.
