November will bring a pivotal presidential election that will define and impact America for generations to come. The choice could not be clearer and the consequences no greater nor longer-lasting. Who wouldn't vote in an election like this?
Obama Justice Department outrages never cease. The politically charged gang led by Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is more interested in helping felons vote than in helping the military to vote. Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, has put a legislative hold on the already troubled nomination of James M. Cole to be deputy attorney general until the attorney general ensures full protection for voting rights of our military (and associated civilian personnel) stationed abroad. The senator is right to raise a ruckus.
Barack Obama learned from Saul Alinsky's manual that the most essential tactic for expanding power is to make opponents abide by the rules while never enforcing the rules against one's allies. That's exactly what his Justice Department and other executive departments are doing in case after case, all aimed at rigging the deck in favor of the political left.
