Kevin’s Korner: Big Brother Barack, Hatch Dispatched and Dethroning the Game

Greetings and welcome to Kevin’s Korner. If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.

Thank goodness President Obama declared the War on Terror is over. I can’t imagine what parts of our lives his administration would be spying on if the War on Terror was still happening, since his administration is busy collecting data on our phone calls, emails, Facebook messages, Google searches, YouTube clicks, credit card transactions and bowel movements … Of course, there’s also the IRS and DOJ likely targeting you, too …

Hey Barack, I’ve known for a long time that you and your lackeys read this column, since your minions whine about my criticisms and you’ve blatantly stolen my ideas … Still, I’ll save you some time and effort, so you can spend your spying time a little more wisely …

Here’s all the pertinent info you need to know, Barack Bots: My favorite CDs at the moment are Led Zeppelin, U2, Nirvana, Motorhead, Muddy Waters and the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack … My TV viewing, if I’m not watching a movie on my 2,673 channels, mainly consists of ESPN Classic, HBO drama series, UFC, sports entertainment, old episodes of WKRP in Cincinnati and Spongebob … I sleep on my side and snore like a chainsaw … My favorite color is green and the red hair is a dye job

The only bright spot to come out of this domestic spying news is seeing the liberals turn against Obama … If you’ve lost Rekha Basu, you’ve lost your base … It’s about time they figured out what we knew five years ago: Barack Obama is a complete and total fraud.

Will JackI don’t give a f*** about the debtHatch become JackI don’t give a f*** about that pollHatch? He might try to shrug it off, but I guarantee his fellow Iowa Dems won’t … The Register’s new poll shows the state senator from Des Moines trailing Governor Branstad 55%-27% Like I said Thursday, the Dems are desperate for a better option than Hatch. They have a few, but it just doesn’t matter.

The Republican Party of Iowa landed a big fish when they lured Texas Senator Ted Cruz to headline a summer picnic on July 19. As I wrote a month ago, Cruz is the conservative star du jour … I’m not sure about those $100 tickets for a Friday afternoon picnic. Sounds a little pricy to me, but I’m glad Cruz is coming here. I’m sure it won’t be his last visit.

2nd District Exec Committee

Females ruled the roost in the Second District Executive Committee officer elections Saturday. Scott County Chair Judy Davidson was named DEC chair, former SCC member Trudy Caviness from Wapello County is the co-chair and Johnson County activist Karen Fesler is the secretary … Just like the Third District meeting, this one was done without permission from RPI. And just like the Third District, they didn’t need permission … And like clockwork, at least one “supportiveSCC member is already questioning the legitimacy of the meeting.

There are two Conservative Heroes of the Week. One is Roy Costner IV, the valedictorian at a high school in Liberty, SC. After the school decided prayer would be omitted from this year’s graduation program, Costner ripped up his pre-approved speech and recited the Lord’s Prayer, to loud cheers from classmates and attendees:

The other conservative hero of the week, Matt Birk, a center for the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, can probably expect an IRS audit to come his way very soon. Birk publicly rejected an invitation to join his teammates at the White House. Why? Because Birk is pro-life and he takes offense with Obama recent “God bless Planned Parenthood” statement … God bless Matt Birk.

The Connecticut legislature passed a law that will block the release of photos from the Newtown massacre. While this is probably a good decision, it will likely embolden the conspiracy nutjobs, aka Paulistinians, who think these murders are part of some government hoax … Morons.

Finally, even if you don’t watch the show, you’ve likely heard or seen people talking about last week’s unbelievable “Game of Thrones” episode … This is the best series on TV, BTW, and is a must see for political junkies. As I told the gang on KCWI’sGreat Day”, with the power struggles, deceit and back-stabbing, it’s just like Washington, D.C. But with swords … I highly recommend it …

Anyway, tonight is the season finale, but I don’t see how they can possibly top last week’s episode. I don’t think another TV show has ever made by jaw drop as that one. Clearly, I wasn’t alone. Check out some of the reaction here from other fans in this video (spoiler alert):

That’s it for this week. Thanks for dropping by. He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
