I am a very proud Citizen of the United States. That took place in early 2008 after a seven year legal journey. As you can imagine, I have some views on immigration which you will find in these pages from time to time.
I was born in London, England and have been American in my attitudes for as long as I can remember. The Constitution should be regarded as a sacred document. Unfortunately as each year passes it seems to be less important. We have a President who told the American People BEFORE he was elected that the Constitution was a "flawed document". That would have been electoral suicide just a few short years ago. I remember when we were trying to help Iraq write it's constitution I said on the radio "we should give them ours! After all, we stopped using it years ago".
I started work as a journalist in 1976 when at the tender age of 16 I got a job on the Jerusalem Post. Recently I have been guest hosting talk radio around the country. Prior to that, you could have heard The Simon Conway Radio Experience.
I am a radio talk show host whose conservative outlook was forged in my native UK, where I experienced the considerable downsides of European-style socialism. I have a unique insight into health care and all the other trappings of a socialist society because I've already lived through where we are headed.
President Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath about his sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky. We all remember this moment when he looked the American people in the eye and lied to our faces.
Then we had that whole definition of sex etc etc. Anyway, the point is, he lied to us. It was a direct lie, but he found the wiggle room with the definition. He was impeached.
Today, President Obama in Sweden said and I quote directly. “First of all, I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line”. This is an outright lie. There is no wiggle room here. He just told us directly that he didn’t set a red line.
The problem is - as we all know - that he did. More than once! It was almost exactly one year ago - August of 2012 when he said in the same Press briefing over a period of less than a minute “A red line for us is that we see a whole bunch of chemical weapons being moved around or being utilized” and then less than 30 seconds later “we have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that’s a red line for us.”
So the question now becomes, what will anybody.... and I mean ANYBODY do about this? The President has lied to us before - many times, but perhaps never more blatantly than here. It’s about time we put him under oath and let the chips fall where they may.
