Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

For 4 Mothers, Not A Happy Mother's Day

For at least four mothers, this Mother's Day isn't such a happy one. One mother went to far recently to Pat Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, ripped Hillary Clinton,blame the death of her son on Hillary Clinton.
“I’m still waiting answers about everything. I do want to say one thing, though. I want to wish Hillary a Happy Mother’s Day. She has her child. I don’t have mine, because of her.”

Both Hillary and Barack Obama share the blame along with the media for the fiasco of 9-11-2012.  Obama because he's the  commander in chief, and is the only one who can authorize military action in situations like this.  LtGen Wm. Boykin(Retired) was on with Governor Mike Huckabee last night. Boykin was the latest official to put blame on the president for giving the stand down order.
“The order to actually engage troops in a rescue operation has to come from the president unless it’s a military facility and then the commander has certain authorities. But it has to come from the president to put troops in harm’s way. Now, in that case, because we don’t know enough of the details, that could have come from the commander from the Africa command who told them to stand down. But play that all the way out, who told him not to allow them to… You are under attack, we are going to be there. That was the whole point of it. And so to say that we didn’t know enough, I don’t buy that. I think that is incredible and I think someone needs to be taken to task over it.”

His 2 am phone call came early in the evening and Obama chose to go  back to bed...then on to Las Vegas for a political fund raiser the next day.

Hillary shares the blame because her office (if not her directly) refused to strengthen the security arrangements in Benghazi, despite repeated requests to do so...

The MSM shares the blame for this because collectively, they refused to cover this story during the campaign last fall...after Obama for months claimed that he had destroyed Al Quieda.  They continue to carry the water for him today, even after it's been shown that many who lead media organizations are closely related to people directly involved.
