Diversity

The New Year has finally arrived.  The new Congress is finally in session.  The shock of the Arizona madmen is finally starting to calm down.  What will these events bring; a fresh start with a chance at political reconciliation, a shift in big government ideology from the previous two years, or maybe a 180 from the seemingly indelible polarization that has fixated itself inside our way of life?  My guess is none of the above.  And even with Congress’ symbolic move to “sit together” during President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address, I believe it’s all the same dog and pony show we’ve seen time and time again.  The reason being; our liberal media and liberal friends will continue to carry on with their crusade to transform America.

Over the weekend, trying to get away from Sunday news shows interviewing injured Arizona Congresswoman’s female friends, and the New England Patriots inexplicable loss to the New York Jets, a news stories caught my eye.  It outlines the train of political thought that I have been trying to explain for a few years now.

Transforming America

With 53% of the vote, the elections of 2008 were sold to the American people under the simple yet powerful notion of CHANGE.  They had just put into office the nation’s first black President, along with deeper Democratic majorities in the House and the Senate.  The new President and his Democratic leadership read this resounding victory as a mandate for sweeping change, outlining a far-reaching agenda to fundamentally transform not just the direction of the country, but our essential economic and socio-cultural framework.

In the past two years we have seen a determined White House and overwhelming majorities in Congress chart that new course for our country.  Unfortunately in our 24 hour new cycle, many developments simply get lost in the shuffle.  So with the 2010 mid-term elections fast approaching, ThreeConservativeBros decided to compile a list of significant events that have occurred in the past 24 months.   We determined these fifty stories were the most important for people to remember before going into the ballot box this November 2nd.  Here they are in no specific order.

The USS Cole was attacked in the Yemeni Port of Aden, on October 12, 2000. 17 sailors died and 39 more were injured in the suicide attack. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack and Jamal al-Badawi was detained just days later. His confession to recruiting the other bombers led to several arrests including Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. Since then al-Badawi has escaped from Yemeni prisons twice along with others convicted for the Cole bombing. He last surrendered to Yemeni authorities as part of an agreement with al-Qaeda militants, although he was released in return for a pledge not to engage in any violent or al-Qaeda related activity. Ten years later none of the defendants convicted in Yemen of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole remain in prison.

Conscientious Objector or Benedict Arnold?

Uncle Anti-War

Often times you hear those on the political left complain that they are caricatured as un-patriotic or even anti-American.  Although I’m not personally familiar with any legitimate or influential conservative politician voicing such rhetoric, it’s a charge that gets regurgitated on a regular basis.  But, is there a basis for such a charge?  Has the claim of being labeled un-American only been used to deflect actual liberal mindsets and actions that warrant such labels?  Is there a difference between taking un-American stances and being righteously anti-American?

Illegal Immigration, Fairness and Apartheid

Last Friday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed State Bill 1070 into law.  The reformed immigration law states, “The provisions of this act are intended to work together to discourage and deter the unlawful entry and presence of aliens and economic activity by persons unlawfully present in the United States.”  Its intent couldn’t be any clearer.  Basing the decision on the Federal Government’s clear dereliction of duty to protect what George Will calls “the essential attribute of national sovereignty,” Arizonans decided to expand law enforcement’s reach in cracking down on illegal aliens.  In the few days since its passage we have seen mass protests and arrests, groups already suing, political jockeying and emotional rabble-rousing to the third degree.  (more…)

By now we all know the story of the Nigerian Diaper bomber who nearly took the lives of some 300 passengers aboard a Northwest Airlines Flight coming into Detroit from Amsterdam on Christmas Day.  The attack was thwarted due to his own incompetence along with the brave reactions of passengers aboard that fateful flight into MY local airport.  Maybe it was pure luck that wouldn’t let the terrorist’s chemical reaction ignite, or maybe it was divine intervention from a much less imposing and less violent creator??  That we’ll never know.
