Governor Palin: "Honoring The Late President John F. Kennedy," Updated — Kennedy Honored in Dallas as Governor Palin Notes

Via Facebook:

May this day honor the late President John F. Kennedy. In his honor, and to protect our republic, Americans implore today’s elected leaders to exercise virtuous truth and integrity in office.

Shockingly to some, the White House and Senate Democrats, desperate for a winning political talking point before Congress’s Thanksgiving vacation, just did the opposite.

Liberals just changed 230 years of enduring Senate rules by enacting the “Nuclear Option” that will now let just 51 votes approve the President’s nominees, and thus prevent dissenting Senators from filibustering controversial appointees who’ll be charged with decision making that affects our lives.

This is significant as further proof that our government is so broken. When politicians can’t get anything to work, they change rules and hope we’ll just get distracted. The hugely divisive, dysfunctional “Nuclear Option” sets a terrible precedent. Mark Levin appropriately calls it “the latest act of leftist tyranny.” It’s also leftist hypocrisy. Back under Republican control of the Senate, Democrats blocked President Bush’s judicial appointees. You should have heard Harry Reid and then-Senators Barack Obama and Joe Biden freak out in railing against the “danger… arrogance… poison” of the Republican majority even considering enacting such a rule change. To ensure cooperation and unity in balancing power for We the People, Republicans wisely did not change the rules.

But that was then. Now this makes for a nice Thanksgiving distraction for the left, but Americans are awake today – we’re not easily distracted with turkeys like this.

Do these far leftists realize Americans will not be chatting cheerfully around our Thanksgiving tables about how Obama and Reid nuked Senate rules? No, if political speak befalls dinner, we’ll no doubt vent about losing health insurance, seeing premiums skyrocket, not being able to afford unworkable Obamacare plans, and still wanting socialized healthcare scrapped altogether. We’ll discuss disappointment in the President and his Party for lying to us.

But don’t let this distraction ruin your Thanksgiving, America! Be thankful for at least one thing revealed in this latest radical act of the far left: more Americans are now stirred from slumber! Only a Butterball’s serotonin-induced sleepiness after dinner will lull us back in; Senate power grabbing distractions won’t do it.

    When I was in Dallas, a couple of weeks ago, I took the time to go to Dealey Plaza. I would encourage anyone that ever visits the Dallas-Ft. Worth area to visit the museum at the former site of the Texas School Depository.

      An interesting bit of human nature about history: Famous people get frozen in time by their photographs. Most people are surprised to learn that both the youngest and the oldest elected Presidents were not only of the same generation, their birth dates were only six years apart: If JFK were alive today, he would be 96 years old, Reagan would be 102. If Marilyn Monroe were still alive she would be 87, the same age as Cloris Leachman and Mel Brooks. Robert Kennedy would be 86, MLK would be 84. Weird, huh?

      IMHO John he’d fit right in…………..Camelot- his shining spot on the hill- was full of progressive scandals, I don’t believe truth and honor were his middle names.
      That being said, his assassination by a communist aligned with the CIA was a blow to all law abiding citizens…………We did mourn as a nation. Then We mourned as Johnson continued the progressive drive to transform this nation.

        Every high-ranking defector from the KGB after 1963, from Yuri Nosenko and Golitsyn all the way to the last one before the dissolution of the Soviet Union, identified Oswald as not just a communist, but also as a KGB operative. Every last one of them.

        The CIA operative who, for decades, debriefed every KGB defector, Jim Angleton, concluded that the cover for Oswald (unstable nut-job) was developed for him by the KGB during his 2 1/2 years in the Soviet Union, where they also provided him with another KGB operative, Marina, as his wife. Angleton also identified Oswald as the KGB agent who provided the KGB with the radar signature, flight characteristics, and flight plan for the U-2 flown by Francis Gary Powers that the Russkies finally succeeded in shooting down in 1956. Oswald was a radar tech working at the air base in Japan where U-2 flights originated, at the time, and was already working for the KGB then, according to Angleton.

        Oswald sought to escape notice by stealing quietly away from the Texas Book Depository. When confronted by a cop, Oswald calmly shot him dead and repaired to a nearby movie theater, again in an attempt to escape notice. After capture, he reportedly remained calm, denied shooting anyone, and comported himself with a kind of studied cold-bloodedness. You can find the interview with the arresting officer with a Google search, and read his comments, for yourself.

    Here is a question for people who don’t pay taxes
    and want free healthcare, education, housing,
    welfare/foodstamp, … etc.:

    Whatever happened to "Ask not what your country
    can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."?

      JFK was a believing Catholic who was pro-life. He was a card-carrying member of the NRA and a gun enthusiast. He was a Truman era Cold Warrior who not only ordered the Bay of Pigs invasion, not only authorized multiple attempts to kill Castro, but it was he who also escalated the USA’s involvement in Vietnam from that of an advisor to that of a participant.

      It was JFK who cut the maximum marginal tax rate from 90% to 70%, and who advocated and signed into law an investment tax credit to reallocate capital from the public sector to the private sector for the sake of improving the economy while simultaneously increasing tax revenues (i.e. he fully understood supply-side economics and put it into practice).

        If JFK were alive today, he would be a member of the Tea Party.

        Thanks, Laddie, for this appreciation of JFK!

          I don’t know how I left out JFK’s wartime naval record, specifically the role played by the Navy in support of the Marine assault on Guadalcanal. It was in support of that operation that Kennedy’s PT 109 was sunk.

          It was at Guadalcanal that the Japanese Imperial army suffered its first defeat of WWII. Guadalcanal was the high point of Japanese imperial expansionism, and they were forced into a gradual, inexorable retreat afterwards.

          Kennedy and his boat played a very small role, but he was there, under fire, and in the turmoil of Naval combat, in the dark of night. That had to have had an effect on his character and makeup in a way that non-combatants cannot understand.

          If JFK had been in the WH on 9/11/12, our men in Benghazi would not have been abandoned by their CINC.
