PATRIOTUPDATE.COM is reporting that Obama and his EPA goons may ban backyard barbeques and fireworks shows on the basis that the resulting emissions harm the ozone layer. In an attempt to steer clear of punishment, local lawmakers will have to respond to the new EPA rules by enacting municipal grilling bans and canceling fireworks shows from sea to shining sea.
This jackass has already enacted more regulations than all previous administrations combined. Well, didn’t he say he wanted to fundamentally change America? It’s already so bad that you can’t even fart in a Jacuzzi without a permit.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. I was astonished to learn that the feds seized, without compensation, portions of raisin crops on the basis they wanted to stabilize the market. The Supreme Court just ruled that they can’t do that. How did that even get to the Court? (Maude ~ Arvada, CO)
A. Didn’t they write a book about that… “THE GRAPES OF WRATH?” A liberal judge in a lower court had ruled that the Constitution’s “Takings Clause” doesn’t apply to raisins, and the impact of the Supreme Court decision won’t be fully known for some time, since besides the order to confiscate raisins, the government also has various orders to take almonds, plums, spearmint oil and the like. Why is it that every time we turn around, we find ourselves having to defend our Constitutional rights?
Q. I can’t believe my eyes: I just read that Obama is sending 250 tanks and artillery pieces to Europe to deter Russian aggression. 250? Against the Russian military? Just who does Obama think he is? (Gillian ~ Sonoma, CA)
A. General George S. Patton.
Q. Just how far is this cleansing of our history going to go? (Abe ~ Winnemucca, NV)A. Well, Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton wants to dig up the bodies of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife and remove them from a city park. Yet, we allow Obama to continue to fan the flames of racism. What gets me is that most of the ancestors of these “do-good” liberals were slave owners themselves and fought the Union tooth and nail.
“The flag that was the symbol of slavery on the high seas for a long time was not the Confederate battle flag; it was sadly the Stars and Stripes.” ~ Alan Keyes

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 2005 case that a Texas Capitol monument containing the Ten Commandments could stay put, although a lawsuit was seeking to tear it down on anti-religious grounds. In the face of that ruling, the Oklahoma Supreme Court has just ruled that a display of the Ten Commandments on a monument at the State Capitol must be immediately removed. Private funds were used to erect the monument in 2012. Since then, others have asked for space, including a Nevada Hindu leader, animal rights advocates, the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and a group pushing for a Satan statue.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled correctly that the Ten Commandments were of historical significance to the founding of America. The people of Oklahoma must be damned proud of their Justices.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Both NBC and Univision cancelled contracts with Donald Trump over remarks he made about Mexicans. Isn’t that censorship? (Reynaldo ~ Cottonwood, AZ)
A. That’s the way left-wing liberals do business; if you don’t conform to their agendas, you get shut up. You have no idea how many comments I receive from the left-wingers telling me explicitly that I need to shut down my blogs; it would be just as well that they don’t read them, but that’s not their objective... they don’t want anybody else reading them, either. What we really need to do in this country is to pass a Constitutional Amendment banning jackasses and moon dogs.
Q. Obama says he’ll “walk away” from the Iranian deal if it “isn’t right.” Do you really think he will? (Pia ~ Vacaville, CA)
A. Since this positioning statement comes on the supposed eve of a deal with Iran, I have to suspect that the Iranians have told Kerry that we can take our deal and shove it, and Obama is trying to make it look like HE was the tough guy and that HE called the “deal” off. The problem here is that you and I know, and the Ayatollah knows, that Obama isn’t going to do anything about it, because he doesn’t want to tarnish his fabulous Nobel Peace Prize that George Soros bought for him.
Q. What will happen if Puerto Rico goes bankrupt? (Giles ~ Tooele, UT)
A. They’ll quit paying their bills and then, maybe, they’ll be able to afford to pay their workers $15 an hour, like Obama wants.
“What most people don’t understand is that UFO’s are on a cosmic tourist route. That’s why they’re always seen in Arizona, Scotland and New Mexico. Another thing to consider is that all of those destinations are good places to play golf. So, there’s possibly some connection between aliens and golf.” ~ Alice Cooper

Over four years after the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and resulting nuclear plant disaster in Japan, Toshiba has come up with a remote controlled robot that will enter the Unit 2 Reactor to determine the full extent of the damage and what has to be done to further mitigate the intense radiation issues.
Some nuclear sites are slated to start coming back on line starting in August. It is estimated that it may be several decades before the site is totally cleaned up. In the meantime, Japan is developing and installing a 10-megawatt offshore wind turbine and may follow with more.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. How do you feel about the NBC firing of Donald Trump for his remarks about illegal Mexicans? (Tanner ~ Salt Lake City, UT)
A. NBC is a totally liberal network and therefore has every right to do what it wants with its employees, including censorship. I further believe that, if they have weight and appearance standards for their “on-the-air” staff, they have the right to require a pregnant female to have an abortion or be fired. Don’t you agree?
Q. Huckabee says that since Obama decked out the White House in gay pride colors, he would have the right as president to display a nativity scene on the White House lawn. Do you concur? (Stella ~ Reno, NV)
A. We conservative Christians and Jews have no rights; we gave them up when we and our churches refused to stand up and stop the radical left-wing liberal agenda. And, if you think we can straighten things out after we elect a more conservative president, you are six bricks short of a full-load; you have to pry the liberal thinkers out of Congress and the Supreme Court as well. Sorry to say this, but your rights are gone… aren’t they?
Q. Do you think Chris Christie will bomb? (Paige ~ Crescent City, CA)
A. I don’t see his candidacy getting out of town; it'll probably get stuck in traffic on the nearest bridge.
“The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” ~ Ronald Reagan

According to a report on FOX NEWS, the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence has been ordered to pay the legal fees of a defendant in a legal case, where the Brady organization said that the seller of ammunition used in the Colorado movie theater massacre should be held liable for those deaths. The Judge said the suit was filed for propaganda purposes. "It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants into the Colorado court where the prosecution of James Holmes was proceeding appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order."
One of the tactics of the anti-gunners is to cause financial harm to pro-gunners by making them defend themselves in lawsuits. The decision was well-founded and right on. It’s the only piece of sound judicial reasoning in a long time; it’s too bad that Judge doesn’t sit on the Supreme Court.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. Why do you suppose, knowing that their chances of escape were slim and that they were likely to get caught anyway. Sweat and Matt invested all of that time and energy trying to get out of Clinton Prison? (Tommie ~ Glendale, CA)
A. Who knows what goes through the minds of people locked away for life? Maybe they were desperate to get out and get onto ObamaCare?
Q. Do you think Sweat will talk about who helped him and Matt escape and what other prisoners have been getting illegal “goodies” in Dannemore? (Angelina ~ Colorado Springs, CO)
A. I wouldn’t. He’s going to spend the rest of his life in high security prisons and nobody there likes a snitch. Maybe they could threaten to lock him up with Hillary?
Q. I am so very concerned there will be a terrorist attack in the U.S. over the 4th of July weekend. Is there anything we can do to help prevent one? (Ryan ~ Fremont, CA)
A. Keep your eyes open and report anything you see that seems out of place or unusual. Be particularly alert around crowds, dams, utility lines and national monuments. Just the fact that we are in fear of such an attack is enough terrorism for me.

The banks in Greece will be closed Monday in order to prevent a collapse of the country’s banking system; the European Central Bank has refused to increase the amount of emergency loans it provides for the country’s cash-strapped lenders. Athens will almost certainly default on a $1.72 billion payment it owes the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday. Greece’s international bailout expires the same day, meaning the country will no longer be under the umbrella of the international rescue package. Finance ministers of other Eurozone countries rejected Greece’s request for a one-month bailout extension to give it time to hold a referendum.
The Greek economy is once again on the precipice of collapse and even closer than it has been before. Such a failure could signal the start of a worldwide economic calamity… even another Great Depression. This is not a good time to be in the stock market; not even Obama could save us.
TODAY’S QUERIES & ANSWERS:
Q. So, you’re a bigot and you’re against gay marriage. Defend yourself. (Hannah ~ San Francisco, CA)
A. The Constitution explicitly provides that anything not covered in the Constitution is reserved to the States and the people to decide; no exceptions are provided for. Marriage is not mentioned. It is therefore solely a right of each individual state to decide. Some states are for it, some are not, but the Federal courts and the Supreme Court have absolutely no jurisdiction over the matter… period. My personal beliefs are beside the point, but I care little about whether or not two gays have a civil union if the state law allows for it. California voted overwhelmingly against gay marriage… twice. Finally, the next step in this vendetta against my religious beliefs will be the requirement that the churches conduct gay weddings or lose their tax exempt status, and that amounts to religious persecution. The Bill of Rights has been trampled upon and yes, I’m damned pissed off about it, for the same reason I’m pissed off about having to pay for someone else’s healthcare. And, you have no right to label me a bigot simply because I vehemently disagree with you.
Q. What’s going to happen with the Iranian nuke deal? (Andre ~ Newark, CA)
A. Another "firm" Obama deadline will pass and he'll go play golf. What a first-class candy-ass!
Q. The economy hasn’t improved that much. California was on the verge of bankruptcy, but they don’t seem to be now; they’re spending money like there is no tomorrow. Where are they getting it? (Rod ~ Apache Junction, AZ)
A. Traffic fines; they are the highest in the country, and there’s a cop behind every billboard and juniper bush.
