Last week was not such a great week for politicians and sea creatures. First, Governor Dannel Malloy and Mystic Aquarium and Sea Research Foundation President and CEO Stephan Coan were photobombed by the beluga whale at Mystic Aquarium. The governor was visiting the aquarium to speak about summer tourism, and it’s hard to tell if the beluga whale, Juno, was that interested in what these guys had to say, or just wanted to get in on the photo opportunity. The same day, President Obama had a salmon spawn on his shoes while visiting Alaska. Yup.
President Barack Obama is planning to honor two Newtown residents, including the father of one of the 12/14 victims and the daughter of a 12/14 survivor, as Champions of Change.
Sarah Clements, founder and chairwoman for the Jr Newtown Action Alliance, and Mark Barden, director of advocacy for Sandy Hook Promise, are among nine honorees being recognized for taking critical steps in their communities to reduce gun violence. The ceremony is set for Thursday, April 3.
I find it very interesting that our imperial president has taken it upon himself to again shred the Constitution and upgrade his executive powers.
There is no question that the infamous Affordable Care Act aka, Obamacare is a questionable law. Yes; it was ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court; but it was ruled a tax – and there lies another question for another time.
A few years ago the Democrat Party had as their central message the trampling of the Constitution by the Republicans. The good news is that at least the Republicans knew we had a Constitution. I don’t think anyone in the White House knows that document is still in existence.
WASHINGTON DC -– Having stumbled on gun control, President Barack Obama on Monday called for a national dialogue on mental illness – a campaign touched off by last year’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.
Speaking at the beginning of a day-long White House conference on the issue, Obama said the time has come to bring mental illness “out of the shadows.”
“I want to make sure people aren’t suffering,” he said.
Last week President Obama gave the commencement speech at Ohio State University where he attacked those who said governments were capable of tyranny. Sorry, but President Obama was wrong! History has shown “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely!” That has been known for centuries and was the premise of our Founders, and still is observable today.
WASHINGTON – A push by the White House and lobbying by the parents of children massacred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School failed Wednesday to convince the Senate to consider a relatively modest gun-control measure: An expansion of background checks for firearms purchases.
“All in all, this was a pretty shameful day for Washington,” said an emotional President Obama, standing in the Rose Garden with Sandy Hook families.
