Political offices have their own personalities, usually reflecting either the leadership or the party involved. However, there is an unspoken rule and understanding that whatever you do or have done can and will affect your political boss. In turn, the political leader has a consistent requirement to know pretty much everything about you and the people you commiserate with. Factors of the relationship such as a romantic involvement, professional partnership or more importantly, marriage give the information a higher ranking. Recently, information regarding Nevada legislator and party leader’s supposed lack of knowledge about an employee’s personal background reveals not only a risk to him, but also the nation.
Bassam Mahmoud Tarhini was not only an illegal alien who coerced now former Press Secretary and Immigration Reform Spokesperson Diana Tejada into marriage to stay in the United States, he was also a person of interest via the Oklahoma City Joint Terror Task Force. Thankfully deported recently, the reality to this aspect is not how it will hurt his campaign but how it challenges factors within legislative offices and how safe they are to handle the information given.
Ignorance. It is a factor of the liberal leadership and has been pretty much accepted by aspects of society such as the media. However, Massachusetts Representative Tierney has given another definition to the word as he consistently states he did not know anything regarding his own wife’s involvement in her brother’s illegal business.
“He jumped out of his chair and grabbed her about the neck as he slammed her into the refrigerator. He then grabbed her about both arms, shaking her as they both went over to the kitchen counter, which Mrs. Wilson struck with enough force to take the breath out of her. She then fell to the floor, hitting the bottom door to the sink. As she laid there stunned, she couldn’t move her head or pick up her arm.”
When the Pledge to America was first announced, it immediately met backlash from the other side of the aisle. President Obama began a tour dedicated specifically to breaking down the plan’s items one by one. While to many political strategists, this response may be seen as politics as usual, there are many holes in the argument that show his plans and the plans of his liberal followers may be sinking their own ship.
In the English language certain phrases are not tricky but are done by many political leaders as a ploy for their own success. Governmental members, especially in recent times, are continually redefining some of clearest phrases such as “Financial reform” and “Student Loan Overhaul.” Even more recently, we come to find even religious leaders also redefining phrases for their own sake. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has attempted to create his own definition of the phrase “sacred ground” to pretty much anything but he plans to build a Cordoba House/Park 51 mosque.
It is not news to hear that we are in an environment of bias which is fueled by our mainstream media. It is not even news when we hear that people who speak truth are pushed down by this sector. However, a recent situation has forced us to not only see the strength of this realization but also the danger. Can a Glenn Beck rally turn the tide?

There is one consistent factor of our society which we are seeing more and more: Using our rights against ourselves in order to protect others. A great recent example is the 9-11 Mosque. Almost daily, people are debating the 9-11 Mosque and whether it should be placed two blocks where terrorists involved in the same religion took down the twin towers and changed the nation and the world forever. When the Mosque was first announced, it was a blip on the television. Aside from some conservative groups and tea party members, even the related rallies was lacking publicity despite taking place right where most mainstream media has their central headquarters. Now that it has been approved, people are screaming and the media responding.
Just as immediately, political leaders began to state the right to practice religion as a reason why this factor should not be evaded. Aside from the fact that the head of the project will not present where his millions in funding came from and has discussed his project in one breath while blaming America for the attack in the second, America once again has to turn the other cheek while being spit in the face. Defending religious… Read more
The bottom line, however you want to look at it, to Obama’s selection for Supreme Court is the choice’s reasoning is for his power only. Not only is Kagan not a correct choice for the nation but for the court as well; especially in this time of war and fiscal challenge.
No matter who it is, everyone you will speak to about Kagan has their own ideas of her but the one thing that stands out within everyone’s response is clear: “No experience in the judicial chambers.” Although many follow that up with other previous members of the Supreme Court and their glowing background as justices, it is not just the experience but what comes along with it that we should be just as concerned with. It is the timing of her arrival.
