RedState Morning Briefing

For January 7, 2010

Forward Morning Briefing to a Friend.

SIGN OUR PETITION

Human Events and RedState (well, Human Events did all the heavy lifting on this one) created a petition to oppose the KSM trial in New York. We’re going to collect the names and we’re going to get this petition delivered to the powers that we. We all feel very strongly about this one.

Please join us in signing the petition against the trial.

1. If You’ve Traveled Through Airport Security, You Have Been Screened More Thoroughly Than Obama’s TSA Pick

2. Health Care Suicide Bombers: Instead of 72 Virgins, They Get Ambassadorship

3. Blanche Lincoln: Nelson’s Deal Should be Dropped

4. Barack Obama’s favorite four-letter word: “Bush”

5. Brit Hume and Public Profession of Faith

1. If You’ve Traveled Through Airport Security, You Have Been Screened More Thoroughly Than Obama’s TSA Pick

This would defy credible explanation unless you understood that the Obama administration really is a collection of amateurs.

Professionals do not let this happen.

Erroll Southers is Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Transportation Safety Administration – the TSA, that organization that screens passengers getting on airplanes.

One would think the Obama administration would screen the man in charge of screening the rest of us. But they did not.

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) has done the country a great service. He put a hold on Mr. Southers because Southers refuses to say whether or not he opposes TS unionization.

Without Senator DeMint’s hold, Mr. Southers may have cleared the Senate before anyone realized that the White House had never screened Mr. Southers. Now, the Washington Post is reporting there are some serious, serious issues in Mr. Southers’ background.

2. Health Care Suicide Bombers: Instead of 72 Virgins, They Get Ambassadorship

Byron Dorgan and Chris Dodd have blown up a barrel full of socialism, potentially spreading it’s toxic mix all over the country, lowering mortality rates, driving up health care costs, and giving the nation a health care bill no one is happy with.

Now they will quit.

The Republicans need to take note of this because we are, in fact, beginning to see something new from the Democrats. As I and others have written about before, the Democrats recognize there is no longer such a thing as a permanent political majority. Instead, the Democrats can effect a permanent policy shift in the country and are willing to take the hits to do it.

The ramifications of this are huge. Dodd and Dorgan, powerful senators, are taking bullets for the team. They are voting to pass health care deform, knowing that doing so will cause their defeat. So to save face and be martyred, they’ll take themselves out instead of having the voters do it. Obama will reward them not with 72 virgins, but with cushy appointments.

From here on out, I think the Democrats realize they are headed back to the minority. It may take 2012 to make it happen, but with that knowledge, they are going to go all out advancing their radical socialist agenda gambling that the GOP, back in power, will not have the guts or veto proof majorities to roll any of it back.

3. Blanche Lincoln: Nelson’s Deal Should be Dropped

Ben Nelson said he never asked for Harry Reid to give Nebraska more funding for Medicaid, and now Blanche Lambert Lincoln says that bribe should be deleted from any final health care bill.

4. Barack Obama’s favorite four-letter word: “Bush”

“Blame Bush” has been Obama’s favorite strategy for trying to deflect blame for his mishandling of virtually every challenge he’s faced since ascending to his throne almost one year ago. But is this approach still resonating? I think not. Obama refuses to stop blaming his predecessor for his own shortcomings. The latest blame-fest came with the December 25th pantybomber incident.

Immediately following the Christmas terrorist attempt by Omar Abdulmutallab, the Obama administration sprung into action in an attempt to pass the buck to Bush.

5. Brit Hume and Public Profession of Faith

We conservatives spend a lot of time – on this website and elsewhere – fighting for freedom and limited government. We do so because we believe ourselves to be right -confident that if government will simply get out of the way, free men will prosper. We therefore will not sit idly by while the world succumbs to tyranny and statism, and instead, we will do our absolute best to speak truth to those who will listen and to offer solutions to the problems we face based on these simple principles.

Similarly, those of us who are Christian believe that we know the truth – confident that in turning over our lives to Christ, we shall receive eternal salvation and regeneration through the Holy Spirit. Christians therefore are not to sit idly by while the world succumbs to sin, false idols and reliance on self over faith in God, and instead, actually are called to do our absolute best to speak the truth to those who will listen and to share the good news of salvation and His redemptive power to the worldly problems we face for those who will believe and repent.

And so it goes with Brit Hume.
