Every four years, the inauguration of the President sets the tone for the direction in which those in the highest executive office hope to steer the nation. Since that is the case, the American people should be very concerned about the lunacy put on display at the swearing in of Barack Obama from beginning to end.
With the gays going into the theatrical hysterics those of that proclivity are renowned for over the invocation delivered by Rick Warren, one would have hoped for something more theologically profound. However, many have no doubt heard sounder sentiments emanating from four year olds saying grace over crackers and juice.
Billy Graham in his heyday Warren is not. From Warren’s words, one could have easily come away assuming God did not know Obama was Black. Warren said, “...we celebrate a hinge point of history with the inauguration of the first African American president of the United States...We know today that Dr. King and a great cloud of witnesses are shouting in heaven.”
These things didn’t even need to be mentioned. For decades now, we have been repeatedly told that it is not the color of skin but rather the content of character that counts.
So then why should we be grateful to have a president whose only characteristic that set him above his peers was his mulatoo pigmentation? Would Warren and the other adherents of the outstretched hand of the Social Gospel been as fawning if the likes of Allan Keyes, Walter Williams, or Thomas Sowell had been elected to high office?
Furthermore, one might in the course of a speech rhetorically intonate that “Dr. King and a great cloud of witnesses are shouting in heaven” and not be too far out of line. However, doesn’t it smack of the utmost hubris to tell the Lord in a prayer what we know the inhabitants of Heaven are doing? As mortals not having crossed over yet to the other side, how in the world (since those mentioned are no longer in it), can we have any certain idea about what those on the other side think of a development here we are all a flutter over? read more »
That is correct, we are now the terrorists; that is according to the far left African-American wing of the Democratic Party.
I am, of course, referring to this absolutely asinine rant here. I would quote that bunch of nonsensical prattle on this blog and respond to it directly; but I am afraid that my emotions would get the best of me and I would say something that I might regret later. Leave it to the idiotic Socialist Liberal Democrats, to turn a fact finding mission, about an admitted Communist, who said everything and I do mean everything; under the damn sun about white people into a "White vs Black" witch hunt; starring of course; Glenn Beck.
The truth is folks, this had nothing to do with "White vs Black" and everything to do with Right vs Wrong. In fact, here is Glenn Back's Statement about Van Jones's ouster:
The American people stood up and demanded answers. Instead of providing them, the Administration had Jones resign under cover of darkness. I continue to be amazed by the power of everyday Americans to initiate change in our government through honest questioning, and judging by the other radicals in the administration, I expect that questioning to continue for the foreseeable future.
Learn what I am
A link to the U.S. Department of Education's site provided the fodder for this first entry from the southern-flyover lands.
As of 5:30 p.m. (CT) pdf files were available of follow up activities to President Obama's forthcoming speech to the nations' school kids. There are pdf files in age-delineated groups, but I would beg to differ with the "Teaching Ambassador Fellows," who wrote these plans, as to what Kindergarteners can write about.
I am highlighting the lesson plans for the 7th-12th graders; children that are capable of writing and asking deeper questions. Children that can figure out why a speech ostensibly about "staying in school," does not contain the word "stay" at all in the follow up lesson plans. ("School" is contained once.) Perhaps that will be covered in the speech. What is covered in the lesson plans sounds like a lot of work for teachers:
Teachers may post in large print around the classroom notable quotes excerpted from President Obama’s speeches on education.
...Based on these excerpts, what can we infer that the president believes is important in order to be educationally successful?
Granted, schools down here in the South have been in session since 8/10. Maybe teachers have had time to make these posters. I think not.
Before the speech begins, activities and questions are suggested for teachers to utilize.
“Why does President Obama want to speak with us today?”“How will he inspire us?”“How will he challenge us?”“What might he say?”“Do you remember any other historic moments when the president spoke to the nation?” “What was the impact?” After brainstorming answers to these questions, students could create a “cause-and-effect” graphic organizer.
I served in Vietnam from 1968-1969 and I had an MOS of 0251 as a USMC Interrogator/Interpreter with the 11th ITT, MACV-I Corps. Most of the interrogations were performed right in the field where the PW's (Prisoners of War) were captured so that we could collect timely tactical intelligence. I am sure that this saved many lives of my fellow Marines since we were able to provide actionable information to field commanders. After we conducted field interrogations, high value PW's were sent to detention facilities for more in depth interrogations to determine higher level strategies, command structure, and future battle plans. Interrogations were removed from Marines in the 1970's and given over to the Army and the CIA. Most of the interrogations took place away from the battlefield and timely actionable intelligence was rare because of the time it took to transport PW's to facilities away from the action. The CIA was not so concerned with tactical intelligence as much as strategic, longer-range intelligence. I cannot speak to the quality of the Army interrogations except for the reports that I have read which indicate that they were more concerned with not crossing the line of approved techniques per the US Army Field Manual than they were with obtaining timely, on-the-scene information which could be immediately disseminated to battlefield commanders. Additionally, many of the interrogators were not trained in the language and customs of the enemy, as we were in Vietnam, so much of the intelligence was filtered through translators which meant that information could be misunderstood or manipulated. Now CIA interrogators are under scrutiny by the US Justice Department and are intimidated by possible prosecution for their interrogation techniques. It appears that the Obama administration wants to release terrorists and go after those who questioned the terrorists. The CIA is now so blackballed that all future interrogations will be conducted by the FBI - a law enforcement agency. This is madness! The terrorists who were captured on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan or planned attacks against America are not scofflaws - they are captured enemy combatants. They are not bank robbers or carjackers or muggers. They are Jihadists - soldiers for Islamic extremism with a mission to attack the "Great Satan" America. The Obama administration and his Justice Department want us to return to a pre- 9/11 mentality. I want us to return to a Vietnam battlefield mentality. We would all be a lot safer if we did. read more »
An extraordinarily alarming <a href=" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6127514/Sentenced-to-death-... in the UK <span style="font-style:italic;">Daily Telegraph</span> describes the adoption by Britain's National Health Service of a protocol to end the life of patients considered terminal by withdrawing food and water and other care. The denial of care decisions are made without consultation or notice to the patient or the patients family. The policy, the Liverpool Care Pathway, was recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice). Nice is the model for the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effectiveness Research established in the Department of Health and Human Services under the <a href=" http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2009pres/03/20090319a.html">stimulus</a> act.While the comparative effectiveness research council would do research and make clinical recommendations, Americans receiving their health care at government expense could expect to have that care conform to the recommendations developed by the council, just as the Liverpool Care Pathway was adopted by National Health Service hospitals on recommendation by Nice.When we begin to describe health care as costing the nation too much money, instead of recognizing the costs are borne by individuals with individual, personal rights and decision making capability we are on the same path which led to the adoption of this policy by the National Health Service.No private health care plan, doctor of organization in the United States could adopt a policy of purposeful death of patients today without criminal and civil penalties. The fifth amendment to the Constitution states no person shall... be deprived of life...without due process of law. The current proposals to move more of the management and control of health care expenditures and decision making from individuals to government will inevitably lead to adoption of the same type of death protocols as now adopted in Britain. Government decisions to end the life of citizens without criminal conviction and without due process can have no other name than tyranny. Sic Semper Tyrannis is a proper motto for opposing the health care proposals now before the Congress. Read the <a href=" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/6127514/Sentenced-to-death-..., read the accompanying comments. Who has a pike.
Viewers wanting to see "Knowing" staring Nicholas Cage might expect a film not all that different from his "National Treasure" series or even perhaps "The Da Vinci Code" as from advertisements the story appears to center around an aged parchment with a series of numbers scribbled across it that seemingly predicts a series of disasters. However, by the film's conclusion, the apocalyptic symbolism alluded to is much more complex and potentially confusing than one might initially suspect.
After a series of catastrophes Cage’s astrophysicist character witnesses as a result of deciphering the cryptic document, one begins to get the impression that the transcendent presence guiding events is more of a tangible one rather than a force in the background. Hints of this are introduced when mysterious figures reminiscent of less than normal looking versions of Men In Black begin to stalk Cage’s son as well as the granddaughter of the character who wrote down the prophetic string of numbers in a flashback set fifty years in the past.
In most films one usually gets a distinct impression as to the forces overseeing mankind’s eschatological destiny. Usually they are traditionally supernatural or more in the vein of what moviegoers would consider extraterrestrial or interplanetary. Seldom do I remember a film where the distinctions were blurred or melded to such a degree as in "Knowing".
For example, viewers were first given a hint of this as Cage and one of the adolescents come across an illustration depicting Ezekiel's wheel within a wheel. The overt supernatural overtones continued to increase with interactions with the Men In Black, especially when a blinding lights emanates from one of their mouths when confronted by Cage and as Cage's partially deaf son picks up a message over his hearing aide from the "whispering people". read more »
A rant on the current climate of We The People.
Health care is an important issue right now and I am against any move to a socialized health system. The turnout for the meetings and town halls has been great and an impact is being made. But just so everyone knows, it is about much more than that. Politicians, TV news, and other mainstream media outlets are focusing on health care because it is happening now. What they do not get or see is that the excessive growth of government has been happening for quite some time now. With the initial bailout at the end of 2008, tarp and the stimulus, cap and trade, and now the health care bill, people are at the point where they are not going take it anymore. That is why there are record numbers of people speaking out, attending these town halls, and just getting involved and informed.
Both parties, the democrats and republicans, are to blame and we all know it. People are getting more informed and they are paying attention now. Be sure to know, politicians, none of your job's are safe. We are going to and will continue to keep a close watch on you. We want and need people in office that will fight for us. People that will take a stand and not back down. It isn't about compromise. It is about the Constitution of the United States. It is about downsizing and limiting the Federal government as prescribed by the Constitution. It is about standing up for what our Founding Fathers envisioned and gave all they had to create. It is about Freedom and Liberty. It is about getting government out of every aspect of our lives. This is the key to it all.
In anticipation of the humiliating defeat of their socialized medicine scheme, Democrats are feverishly working to get their legislation passed by cheating.
Their plan, known as “budget reconciliation,” works as follows: (1) have Senate committees expand Medicaid, cut Medicare, force individuals to buy and businesses to offer insurance, give subsidies to low-income people and tax credits to small businesses, levy new taxes, and do everything else Democrats wanted to do in their health care bill but knew would never pass; (2) lump it all into a budget reconciliation bill; and (3) pass it with 50 votes and no filibuster.
The bill would also contain language to support enactment of a health care overhaul, but because provisions unrelated to the budget cannot legally be included, the Senate parliamentarian will likely strike these from the bill. According to the New York Times, which favors the reconciliation swindle, it is unclear whether two key elements will be allowed in the bill: the requirement that insurance companies accept all candidates and charge the same regardless of condition, and the creation of a government health insurance exchange.
The Times eggs Democrats on to declare that these two provisions, while irrelevant to the budget, “are so intertwined with other reforms that they are [necessary] for other provisions that do affect spending or revenues.”
If that ruse doesn’t work, the Times notes, then the process could “leave the reform package riddled with holes—perhaps providing subsidies to buy insurance on exchanges that do not exist, for example.” In this eventuality, Democrats would pass a second bill, subject to filibuster, that fills in gaps where budget-irrelevant provisions were removed. read more »
The setup: Akron, Ohio, 2004. A costly and messy divorce, with a five-year-old child caught in the middle. She, Victoria Douglas, says he, Rodd Sutton, sexually abused their daughter. Victoria prints out and distributes flyers with his name and address and the words "CHILD RAPIST. BE ALERT! PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN."
Akron city police investigate and find no evidence of abuse. Nearby Springfield township police investigate and find no evidence of abuse. Akron City Hospital investigates and finds no evidence of abuse. Summit County Children Services investigate and find no evidence of abuse.
Victoria Douglas, with custody of the child, gives her house to her mother to avoid losing it in the legal fallout, and flees with the child to Florida.
Fast forward to August 2009, when a jury decides Victoria Douglas should pay $1.2 million in damages for defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress, including $136,000 for the value of the house. Sutton's lawyers doubt that he will be able to collect the damages.
So this woman (and I use the word begrudgingly) ruins this man's life; steals his child through completely false allegations; defames him with flyers that all but beg the public to break into his house and rough him up (or worse); forces a hospital, two police agencies and the Children Services board to spend who-knows-how-much on investigating her wild claims, taking those investigators, doctors and social workers away from their actual duties where they could be helping people... and she basically gets away scot-free. She has custody of the child, she's living it up in Florida, and he probably won't see a dime of the settlement. My only hope is that he pursues this and uses this judgment to get custody of his child away from that nutcase. read more »
The new test of liberal political ideology seems to be, not whether you favor Obama’s health care plan, but how long it takes you to realize what a disaster it is.
The American people were, as usual, first out of the gate to demonstrate their common sense. Although a slim majority voted for Obama in November, a growing preponderance has been telling pollsters they disapprove of Obama and his handling of health care. On Sunday, Rasmussen reported that Obama had reached a new low in their Presidential Approval Index, with health care one of his lowest-rated issues.
Like a teacher indulging a failing student’s pleas to find a way to give him extra points on his test, the Congressional Budget Office has spent all summer admonishing Obama for presenting legislation that will be more expensive than advertised, produce no savings, and yield expanding and unsustainable deficits for the next 10 years. (“Now, Barry, we’ve already given you all the credit we can—next time you’ll just have to try harder.”)
The Mayo Clinic, which Obama cites as a model for cost-cutting measures, called the Medicare payment model proposed by Congress a “catastrophe.”
Seven state medical associations banded together with private medical societies and two previous American Medical Association presidents in a letter to the President opposing the legislation. The American Hospital Association is imploring hospital directors to counter Congress’s bill, as are specialty associations such as the American College of Physicians. read more »
Americans in their stupidity and apathy have really done it this time. Americans have turned the keys to the kingdom over to leftist radicals. The pot smoking, make love not war, blame America first crowd are now in total control. They immediately began to implement their egalitarian welfare society. Obama has nationalized private industries. His next big take over will be health care. Big Brother is alive and well and intends to control us from cradle to grave. Wake up America!Leftists began their attack on America decades ago. The intent of the Founding Fathers was for the "people" to always be in control of government. This intent was honored for many years after our founding. The tide began to shift during the War of Northern Aggression with Abe Lincoln becoming a dictator. It was in 1913, when an income tax was implemented by congress, that the power shift really kicked in.
American citizens today are at the mercy of the federal government. When the government has usurped the power to confiscate property at will, when the government determines how much of your paycheck you are allowed to keep, you are little more than slaves.Liberals have destroyed the family. Families are the backbone of civilization. By making men irrelevant to the family structure they have established government as Big Daddy. Women will have child after child with no husband in sight because they know government will feed, clothe, and house them.Obama must be stopped. He is a Marxist and his agenda is to destroy capitalism. Obama has America on the highway to hell.
With Obama seeming to withdraw the so-called "public option" from the healthcare reforms being considered by Congress, many will assume that the battle is now over. However, things may be more dangerous than ever before.
Up for consideration are so-called "healthcare cooperatives" that will attempt to blend aspects of public and private systems, no doubt with the care and responsiveness that homeowner associations have become renowned for. What is to prevent companies from eliminating their insurance programs and pushing their employees into these?
This is what Walmart-types are drooling for in the propaganda where they say they won't be happy until everyone is insured. What they are really hoping for is the opportunity to drop the coverage of their own employees.
The Libyan responsible for the bombing of PAN AM Flight 103 has been set free. Since the terrorist is dieing of cancer, Scottish officials claim that he was released in compliance with the nation's values.
And what might those be; pandering to radical Islamists? No wonder the country is renowned for men who wear dresses. It is because of this spinelessness that Western Europe totters on the edge of the garbage can of history.
If someone has a life sentence or a certain amount of time left on their term, prison is where they ought to die. Isn't one of the reasons we have a CIA is to make sure human scum like this meets with a mysterious end?
I am tired of the Internet ads reading something like "Obama Asks Moms To Return To School". Especially creepy is the one with the two women marching with a brainwashed look plastered across their faces. read more »
A look back at the third week of August 2009
I read a lot of news, and I don't get to talk about it all. So I'd like to start a weekly segment here that I'm going to call the Saturday Summary, a look back at the news I found newsworthy over the past week or so (some links may be older than a week).
The Obama Administration is blocking American efforts to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico, while paying the Brazilians to do it themselves. Meanwhile, China, India and Russia are doing it without our help.
Contrary to the common belief, the US manufacturing sector is doing better than ever, accounting for 25% of global manufacturing value-added (compared to 10.6% for the Chinese).
The US currently has 130,000 troops in Iraq and 68,000 in Afghanistan. But most anti-war rhetoric ended in January with Obama's inauguration. To her credit, Cindy Sheehan is still at it, she's just being ignored by the left.
High prices in health care aren't as high as they seem. Medical insurance seems to act more like a union looking for bargaining power than as actual insurance.
Canadians are regularly coming to the US for health care, both paying out-of-pocket for it and getting the Canadian government to pay for it. A lot of people are asking where Americans will go once Obamacare is law, but I also wonder, where will the Canadians go? read more »
Now this is a real shocker….
This comes via HotAir.com and it really makes you wonder.
I was going to embed the video here, BUT! I guess this software does not like video embeds. So, you'll have to hope on over to my blog to listen to the video. Click here to do so
They do have a point, he did make all of those promises, and now they have turned on them. I said it long ago on this blog, within 6 months time; Barack Obama would go from being the hero to Public Enemy number one. Sadly, Mr. President, you have proven me right 10 times over.
The sad thing about this is the following; Bush was in office for eight years. Until the start of the Iraq War on March 20, 2003, President Bush's poll numbers were favorably high. The nation was coming off the horror of September 11, 2001. It was not until the war turned ugly in 2006; that Bush's poll numbers started the serious drop. With the current President, it has taken six months. That very fact my friend is very astounding.
The interesting part is what is turning against him. First off, the far right has always not liked him; 46% of which voted for John McCain, the rest voted for either Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin or wrote in Ron Paul. (This is not to mention the votes that went to Ralph Nader and the other third Parties.) Therefore, that takes care of the far right, The Republicans and the independent Conservatives, like me. (...and Yes, that does include the "Birther" crowd...) What is really shocking is this; the very people that worked to elect Barack Obama are the very ones that are now turning on him; The Far Left! This video is a perfect example of that fact. Not to mention the many self-proclaimed "Independent's" that voted for him as well. They are in full out retreat mode away from this President. I have a belief as to why, it can be summed up in one word; Overreach. read more »
The plan of our founders
Why is America the greatest country in the world, with the longest lasting form of government (Our Constitution)in history? A fair question that of course can be debated by different schools of thought. I am a conservative, and the liberal mind may consider me radical, but there is absolutely nothing radical about believing the way that the founders of this great nation believed, and how they intended our system of government to work.
We are a free people, and one of the main reasons that we have survived for so long with our precious freedoms is because of our free enterprise system. Our founding fathers planned for very limited government. Our individual state governments were supposed to deal with its people, while the federal government was small, and played a very limited role in our lives. These were great Christian men who believed in God, the Bible, and in the worth of each individual person to conduct thier lives as THEY saw fit with very little, if any, interference from government.
Fast forward to the year 2009. We have a federal government that has become a "bloated pig." Taxes are a part of our democratic system, but when people are taxed excessively to pay for every whim of man, the spirit of the individual is severely oppressed. In my opinion, one of the greatest presidents ever, Ronald Reagan, knew the dangers of big government and high taxes. He proved that the government could actually cut taxes, and revenue would be increased? Yes! But how could this be? When people are left alone, allowed to run thier own lives, and handle thier money(What a great concept?)they will spend, invest, build, and create! As a result, more revenue will flow into the coffers. This is how America was meant to operate. The market must be left alone to work itself. read more »
Try as the atheist might to manipulate objective data to fit their hypothesis with some evolutionists going so far as to invoke the law in order to suppress perspectives conflicting with their origins account, the assumptions of atheism fail to square with the facts of nature and with the revelation of nature's God. At one time earlier in the modern era, it was quite common for the atheist to portray himself as the true friend and ally of science. However, as impartial observational science has probed deeper onto the macroscopic realm of cosmic space as well as the microscopic world of the subatomic particle, this relationship once prided by the atheist turned out not to be as solid as originally thought.
The scientific establishment and the philosophical elites once derided the so-called "theistic proofs" for the existence of God as the outdated wisdom of a less-enlightened era. It turns out, however, that these time-honored arguments may be as relevant as the latest academic journals.
The cosmological argument, perhaps the best known, states that all finite realities and structures have a cause. Therefore, ultimately there must be an uncaused cause complete in itself in order to get the proverbial billiard ball rolling; this the theist declared to be God.
Naturalistic cosmologists steeped in atheism such as Carl Sagan once tried to dance around the issue by saying that the cosmos is all there was, is, or ever will be. But it seems that the laws of physics don't exactly have a record of contributing to their local PBS station.
The Laws of Thermodynamics declare that, left to themselves, systems degrade to the maximum level of entropy; or in laymen's terms, things wear out. Employing this principle, one is forced to conclude that, if the universe is an infinitely-old closed system those like Sagan claim it to be, then the universe would have already wound down in eons past. Therefore, the universe must have had a beginning. And since something finite cannot come from nothing, the hypothesis of a divine creator provides the most plausible alternative. read more »
My previous blog entry covered many labels that fit me, when understood in the proper context (in other words, when not twisted by the left for their own purposes): liberal, pro-choice, etc. I'd like to add to that list with a few labels that do not fit me, but that the left will insist on applying to me-- and if you oppose them, they'll insist they apply to you too.
First, I am not Racist. I think it's great that we finally have a black President even though I did not vote for him. I don't agree with most of what he does and I don't trust his motives, but that's not because he's black. I wouldn't agree with the policies he's advancing no matter what color he was. Frankly, the idea that white people cannot oppose a black President's policies without being racist is one of the most racist things I've heard in the past year.
Second, I am not Fascist. I have much less in common with Nazi ideology than socialists do. The word Nazi is an anglicized abbreviation of the German word Nationalsozialismus, meaning National Socialism. The Nazi Party's official name was the National Socialist German Worker's Party. Their actual policies involved increased government control over every aspect of the German citizen's life. They opposed capitalism on principle and they "approved" of individual property rights only when those rights were used to further the Nazi agenda. I could go on and on, but this issue has been widely covered in other blogs lately.
Third, I am not Sexist. I am a man who believes that abortion is morally and socially wrong, at least as wrong as killing any other human being. I'm all for equal rights for both sexes, but that means equal rights for both, not better rights for women. Violence by men against women is horrible, but is violence by women against men somehow more acceptible? Why do feminists work so hard to cover up statistics about violence by women against men? Considering that criminological studies estimate 40%-50% of rape accusations are false, why is it wrong to suggest that those accused of rape should be considered innocent until proven guilty? Why is it wrong to hold false accusers accountable for the lives, careers and relationships they ruin? I've been called a rape sympathizer and told I'm as bad as an actual rapist, just for asking this. Many other men have been called sexist and worse for asking questions like these. Rather than address potent issues that could benefit us all, men and women, the left would rather have you believe that anyone who questions their dogma is simply sexist and bigoted. read more »
The pile of victims President Obama has thrown under the bus to try to get health care reform passed is growing so large that just treating their internal injuries is going to bankrupt the national health care system.
First it was the insurance companies. When Obama realized early on that Americans weren’t chomping at the bit for socialized medicine, he subtly changed his language to imply that he was seeking “health insurance reform.” Insurance companies, to remind Obama, by definition have a vested interest in not covering costly treatments for people with a 100% risk of having a particular medical condition. But the administration nobly promised to go after, as the New York Times put it, “unpopular insurance industry practices, like refusing patients with pre-existing conditions”—also known as “providing insurance.”
Nancy Pelosi swore to oppose the “shock and awe, carpet-bombing by the health insurance industry to perpetuate the status quo”—as opposed to the couple, two-three homemade signs proffered by paid armies for Health Care for America Now, Organizing for America, SEIU, and ACORN. Obama promised to “reform the insurance companies so they can’t take advantage of you.” Pelosi slandered insurance companies as “villains.”
Surprisingly, insurance executives didn’t take kindly to being called monsters. Karen Ignagni, CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans, seethed, “Attacking our community will not help get anyone covered… We have to… correct the record.” read more »
Dingell berries have threatened a protestor daring to speak at a congressional townhall. According to Mike Sola, supporters of Rep. Dingell showed up at his house in the middle of the night in reference to the exchange this father had about his son with the Congressman. The nocturnal altercation was reported to police and Sola vows to defend life and property by any means necessary if the situation calls for it.
Tolerancemongers and Afrosupremacists are plotting to remove Glenn Beck from the airwaves. A coalition of Black bloggers has convinced Geico to withdraw advertising from this particular afternoon Fox News program.
Beck dared to speculate that Barack Obama might harbor racial antipathy towards Whites in light of the hasty conclusions the President drew regarding the Gate's altercation. Perhaps conservatives should respond by pressuring advertisers into dropping notoriously anti-Caucasian Tom Joyner.
Freedom throughout the Western world hangs dangerously in the balance.
The military is recruiting for concentration camp guards. A classified on the GoArmy.com and National Guard websites is seeking "Internment and Relocation Specialists".
Naive supporters of the government will claim this is only referring to detention centers set up for America's terrorist enemies. I ask you, dear citizen, just exactly who is a terrorist now? Obama supporters and allies have dropped the term in relation to Islamic militants and instead apply it to citizens confronting legislators and bureaucrats over the inadequacies of the proposed healthcare reforms.
Things don't look much better off among America's closest foreign allies either as plans are being drawn up to extinguish liberty in one of the lands that once guarded this precious flame. British officials are considering mandatory vegetarianism throughout the United Kingdom. read more »
The speaker was Nancy Pelosi. The date was January 17, 2006. The setting was a town hall meeting in San Francisco, captured on video and available at a Breitbart TV near you. The subject was the Iraq War. The president was George W. Bush. The surgery was Botox.
The authors are Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer. The date is August 10, 2009. The context is an editorial in USA Today. The subject is protestors at health care townhall meetings across the country. The president is Barack Obama. The surgery is still Botox.
Pelosi passionately spoke of free speech rights and the necessity of hearing all viewpoints: “I say to the President, ‘Mr. President [Bush], if you think that our troops in Iraq are there to fight for democracy, do not destroy it at home by cutting off our freedom of speech.’”
She highlighted the critical, historical role of townhall meetings and the importance of face-to-face confrontations between congressmen and the voters they represent: “Democrats and Republicans… are starting to speak out [about the war]. And you know why? Because they’re hearing from home. There’s nothing more articulate, more eloquent to a member of Congress than the voice of his or her own constituent.”
Most importantly, she reminded listeners of the strengths of our uniquely American system of representative democracy, and advised them that there is no higher patriotic calling than standing up for what you believe in: “So I thank all of you who have spoken out for your courage, your point of view, all of it—your advocacy is very American and very important… So let’s not question each other’s patriotism when we have this very honest debate that our country expects and deserves.” read more »
