Keith Olbermann: Still a Sophomoric Boor

Keith Olbermann on Thursday mocked the Southern drawl of Alabama's Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim James. Last week, James released a new ad claiming that if he's elected governor, drivers license exams will only be written in English rather than the twelve languages currently available for Alabama residents. The commercial ended, "Maybe it's the businessman in me, but we'll save money, and it makes sense. Does it to you?" Original Article

Terminating the United States

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger would love to run for president — if he could. California's actor-turned-governor was born in Austria and the U.S. Constitution prevents foreign-born citizens from holding the nation's top job. Jay Leno asked Schwarzenegger on "The Tonight Show" Thursday if he would make a White House run if the law was changed. Schwarzenegger replied, "Without any doubt." Original Article

Left Turn: Fight Arizona's misguided immigration law

Through the 19th and 20th Centuries and now into the 21st -- just look at what's happened in Arizona -- demonizing and harassing immigrants has displayed a mean streak in the American dream. An Arizona Legislature dominated by crazies -- they're birthers, they've allowed people to pack concealed weapons into restaurants, and axed a health insurance program for poor kids -- has just made it a crime to be an illegal immigrant in the Grand Canyon State. Law enforcement officers are now required to demand papers from anyone they suspect to be in the country illegally.

Arizona, Screwed by the Media

Whenever I’d watch old WWII movies and saw the occupying Nazi soldiers demand papers from French citizens I’d think how lucky we are that here in America we don’t have to be subjected to this treatment. Since the Arizona governor signed an immigration law, Democrats and their fellow alarmists in the MSM are desperately trying to equate it with Nazism and the civil rights abuse of Hispanics.
As a Hispanic I recognize this ploy for what it is- a desperate attempt to incite militant Hispanic groups into protesting Arizona and liberals into boycotting the state. Why, you may ask? Because if what Arizona did spreads to the entire country, the Democrats are toast. And their media pals know this. Original Article

From containable to a crisis

Suddenly, everything changed. For days, as an oil spill spread in the Gulf of Mexico, BP assured the government the plume was manageable, not catastrophic. Federal authorities were content to let the company handle the mess while keeping an eye on the operation. But then government scientists realized the leak was five times larger than they had been led to believe, and days of lulling statistics and reassuring words gave way Thursday to an all-hands-on-deck emergency response. Now questions are sure to be raised about a self-policing system that trusted a commercial operator to take care of its own mishap Original Article

Palin goes personal in Texas

Temporarily shelving her feisty political persona, Sarah Palin instead offered personal glimpses into her life as a mother and grandmother Thursday night as she called for a "culture of life" that embraces alternatives to abortion. After a praise-filled introduction by Gov. Rick Perry, the former Alaska governor recalled the concern that gripped her family when her son Trig was diagnosed before birth with Down syndrome.

Hillary Clinton's Abortion Grenade

The culture war is breaking out in American foreign policy. And the main culture warrior is not a ranting televangelist but America's secretary of state. Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada, as host of June's Group of Eight meeting in Ontario, has been preparing an initiative to reduce maternal mortality in poor nations. At first, his government implied that neither contraception nor abortion would be part of the proposal. Under pressure, Harper's foreign affairs minister later clarified that the plan "doesn't deal with abortion" but that "it doesn't exclude contraception."

Is Obama fomenting a race war?

President Obama is inciting racial division. He rightly fears that the Democrats will suffer huge losses in November's midterm congressional elections. Republicans are within reach of retaking control of the House of Representatives. Even the Senate may be in play. His party's grip on power is threatened - and with it, Mr. Obama's radical socialist agenda. Fear breeds desperation. Hence, Mr. Obama is resorting to the worst kind of demagoguery: playing the race card. In a video to Democrats, the president embraced identity politics; black, Hispanic and female voters are to be courted at the expense of white middle-class America.

No Fool, Obama is Cold and Calculating

Obama is very easy to figure out. Just look at his compromising associations during his entire, paper thin career. Observe that he taught ACORN workers from his favorite play book, 'Rules for Radicals' which is dedicated to Lucifer in the front cover......yes indeed. Isn't that inspiring? In Obama's world, big Government and him are co-gods of control.
As communists think, Obama wants control of all of us from cradle to grave. The trick of any wanna be dictator is to ride in on the white horse first...seduce the people by attending to contrived and manipulated needs, i.e. health care, jobs and security. As you are acting as the 'Change messiah' and 'Father Christmas,' you develop fans who are 'Stepford wives.' They will march in lock step and start ignoring the real evidence and elephants running through the room. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HITLER DID TO GET VOTED IN, THEN SEDUCE AND DISTRACT A NATION, WHILE INVENTING ENEMIES TO DESTROY. Many German fans, young and old were robotically obedient, thinking they were doing the right thing. A nation was destroyed and millions were slaughtered.
You know the rest of the story unless of course you are the President of Iran. I CALL ON ALL OF YOU TO REWRITE THE STORY BEING FORCED UPON US BY THIS CONGRESS AND ADMINISTRATION. Get boldly involved with the Tea Parties; Get behind the REAL conservatives running for any local, state and federal office; Fax congress on a variety of issues at www/faxdc.com. Put the pressure in their faces.

Catholic church encourages illegal immigration

Why do Catholic officials want to encourage illegal immigration? The answer is quite simple. Most of the illegal aliens are Catholics. Plus, the church makes lots of government money by hosting and serving the immigrants.
The controversy over Arizona’s immigration law should be used to highlight the shameful role of the Roman Catholic Church in facilitating the foreign invasion of the U.S. This scandal deserves as much attention as the seemingly never-ending cases of sexual child abuse involving priests.
In a major embarrassment for followers of the U.S. Catholic Church, Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles compared Arizona’s new law to “German Nazi and Russian Communist techniques.” He actually wrote this on his personal blog, under the headline, “Arizona’s Dreadful Anti-Immigrant Law.”
Mahony is described by the Los Angeles Times as “a nationally influential figure who heads the nation’s largest Roman Catholic archdiocese with 4.3 million members.” In other words, he is not a fringe player. Indeed, he is typical of Catholic Church leaders. http://www.newswithviews.com/Kincaid/cliff411.htm

State of Arizona: Right on and solid

Open borders advocates are livid that the State of Arizona has enacted a new law authorizing State law enforcement personnel to arrest illegal aliens. The Reverend Al Sharpton is threatening to march. The mayor of San Francisco has declared Arizona off limits as a travel destination. The national government of Mexico has issued travel warnings. President Barack Obama is contemplating bringing a federal lawsuit against the State. Some are calling for a boycott of the State.
So, why all the fuss?
The State of Arizona is rightly sick and tired of the federal government's refusal to protect our nation (and the State of Arizona specifically) from this foreign invasion that is commonly referred to as "illegal immigration." In other words, the State of Arizona has said, "If the federal government won't enforce the law, we will." I say, good for them! Now, the other border states (Texas, New Mexico, and California) should do the same thing. Arizona has it right, and the vast majority of the American people know it.
As an aside, if you are considering a visit to the American Southwest this summer, why not support the brave legislators and governor of Arizona, and make a point to spend your leisure dollars in Arizona? And when you do, write a letter to the State capitol and tell them. Even more importantly, I suggest that everyone contact their own State representatives, senators, and governors, and urge them to enact a similar law--to the one Arizona passed--in your State. http://www.newswithviews.com/baldwin/baldwin586.htm

The long march to destroy Israel

The Gramscian method is now being attempted as a means of undermining and eventually destroying the state of Israel. All of this would of course be moot if the speedier Bolshevik approach employed by Iran under Ahmadinejad, Hezbollah and Hamas proxies firing missiles and their development of a nuclear bomb is successful.

Well-meaning liberals, including an increasing number of pro-Israel Jewish liberals, are incrementally moving away from believing in Zionism as a moral and ethical force in the same way the Gramscians of previous generations gradually moved liberals away from free-market democracy. Zionism, it should be stated, is the national aspirations of the Jewish people in the modest state of Israel, nothing more and nothing less.

Obama Red: "The Manchurian President"

President Obama has deep ties to an anti-American extremist nexus that has been instrumental not only in building his political career but in crafting current White House policy, charges a new book.
"The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and other Anti-American Extremists," is set officially to be released Monday.
The book exposes an extremist coalition of communists, socialists and other radicals working both inside and outside the administration to draft and advance current White House policy goals.
With more than 800 citations, the brand-new, autographed title from WND senior reporter Aaron Klein bills itself as the most exhaustive investigation ever performed into Obama's political background and radical ties. Klein's co-author is historian and researcher Brenda J. Elliott.


Obama and the Press: The diddle fiddle is over

President Obama’s approach to the press: love ‘em and leave ‘em. Except he never did much loving, and now that the newlywed phase has petered out, the press is questioning its own infatuation with the Oval Office dweller. That’s typified by Obama’s joke at a White House correspondence dinner last year that “most of you covered me” and “all of you voted for me.” The press corps was not amused. And the antagonism has only grown over time, as explained in an expansive Politico story on the Obama administration’s ill treatment of the media. Original Article

Obama doesn't take the nuking of Tel Aviv serious enough

The Obama administration is pressing Congress to provide an exemption from Iran sanctions to companies based in "cooperating countries," a move that likely would exempt Chinese and Russian concerns from penalties meant to discourage investment in Iran. The Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act is in a House-Senate conference committee and is expected to reach President Obama's desk by Memorial Day. "It's incredible the administration is asking for exemptions, under the table and winking and nodding, before the legislation is signed into law," Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Florida Republican and a conference committee member, said in an interview. Original Article

Pressing: Mile high audience with the King

President Obama made a rare appearance in the back of Air Force One to chat with reporters on Wednesday. The president, who does not often chat with his “press pool,” came back ostensibly to share the news that he was congratulating Republicans and Democrats for moving a financial regulation bill to the senate floor. But then he stayed and took five questions. For nine minutes. Members of the often-complaining press corps were besides themselves with excitement, putting away the chicken parmigiana they were eating to talk to the president. Original Article

Obama could have checked 'white'

I have always considered Barack Obama to be biracial, and I had hoped that his election would help our country move beyond the tired concept of race. Unfortunately, the president is not getting with my program. Although I knew Obama self-identifies as African American, I was disappointed when I read that that's what he checked on his census form. The federal government, finally heeding the desires of multiracial people to be able to accurately define themselves, had changed the rules in 2000, so he could have also checked white.

Alien invasion will destroy America - Soon

To save yourself and your family, join the largest organization to stop mass immigration where your input counts and makes impact: www.NumbersUSA.com with over one million members and we need 10 million members! In particular, watch the 14 minute video by Roy Beck “Immigration by the Numbers” on the website. It will profoundly help you understand our predicament and how to change course. In California, www.capsweb.org with Dr. Diana Hull.
NBC anchor Brian Williams reported two weeks ago that 20 million Americans suffer unemployment or underemployment. ABC’s Diane Sawyer reported on millions of Americans being foreclosed on their mortgages. Katie Couric at CBS told us that the ‘recovery’ sees only 95,000 jobs created monthly. Little known and not reported by any of the top news networks, a whopping 35 million Americans subsist on food stamps. Over 13.4 million American children live below the poverty line and go to bed hungry every night.
You may engage this sobering number into the equation. With the harsh aforementioned paragraph, nonetheless, every thirty days, our U.S. Congress imports 150,000 to 180,000 legal immigrants as well as allows illegal alien migrants to cross into our country without warrant. Total: 1.5 to 2.0 million new people added to this country, give or take a few thousand, annually. http://www.newswithviews.com/Wooldridge/frosty565.htm

Do you think like a Christian or a humanist?

My friend Mark had a conversation with a pastor last week regarding my candidacy. The pastor acknowledged my courage, respected my commitment to Christ, and believed my “positions” were in direct line with the Holy Scriptures. But he thought I was “too radical.” He said a more “moderate” Christian would be more effective in breaking “gridlock.” (I am not making this up.) He was afraid I might do something to make “Christians look bad.”
“Lukewarm.” That is what I told Mark. That is exactly why we are in the mess we are in. Our Christian leadership believes that the Gospel is too radical. What they are doing flies in the face of Christ’s clear admonition against moderate, lukewarm, Christianity.
Most of America’s “men of the cloth” make Jesus want to puke. They are leading the sheep to slaughter.
All across this nation church’s are supporting “moderate” Christians who have climbed the political ladder by making sure that their lukewarm Christianity did not get in the way of the approval from the political hacks who select our candidates for us. That is why “pro-life” congressman, can attend “pro-life” churches, where “pro-life” congregants vote into office those who will not stand up for “pro-life” babies.
It is enough to make a guy barf.
Is it just me, or shouldn’t our leadership be “radical” for Christ? Shouldn’t they be supporting and promoting “radical” Christians? Shouldn’t lukewarm, moderate-Christian candidates make them want to puke as well? http://www.newswithviews.com/Daubenmire/dave192.htm

I thought the spirit of the Tea Party was the most America-healing event I had ever witnessed.

Fine, it's America, you get to voice your opinion. But, it created a turmoil in me, and when there's a turmoil, I know I have to respond, so I wrote Leonard Pitts Jr. an open letter:

Media need to buy a clue about Tea Parties

To hear the media tell it, the Tea Party movement is one of the most mysterious forces ever to surface in national life. Since February 2009, when CNBC's Rick Santelli urged his listeners to dump unfunded derivatives into Lake Michigan to protest the developing culture of bailouts, they have been nothing but open about their fears of insolvency, their discomfort with increasing size of the government and their terror of deficits. The media listen closely to all these objections, and decide they must mean something else. They say they fear debt, and the media insist that they must fear Hispanics Original Article

The Greatest Imposter

Why Lt. Col. Lakinis surely not mistaken
Alan Keyes: 'He shows courage, common sense lacking among civilian authorities'

Lt. Col. Lakin is not the one who has mistaken his actions. Indeed, he shows the intelligence, courage and common sense thus far sorely lacking among the civilian authorities for whose Constitutional position he shows greater respect than they themselves have so far demonstrated. I have no doubt that he hopes, as we should all pray, that his case will advance until it puts before these so far shamefully derelict authorities a conscientiously inescapable opportunity to stop evading their duty, and to heed, as Lt. Col. Lakin has, the clearly stated requirements of the Constitution they are sworn to uphold.

Dude Sharpton and his crew invade Arizona

Al has been commissioned to head westward toward the Grand Canyon to protect Obama's true agenda. Mouthpiece Sharpton will speak on behalf of America's post racial president who condemned Arizona's immigration bill as being, "irresponsible," "unfair," and potentially "illegal."
It is comforting to know Al Sharpton's coif goes well with Arpaio provided pink underwear. The Right Reverend Sharpton has expressed plans to descend on the streets of Arizona to protest Governor Jan Brewer's new immigration bill. Sharpton appears eager to join Lillian Rodriguez Lopez of New York City's Hispanic Federation, as well as other activists fighting the Arizona law, by participating in acts of civil disobedience. Obama's Harvard Law School professor, Charles Ogletree recently spoke about the National Action Network leader saying, "Sharpton is a conduit between the disadvantaged and powerful leaders."

'South Park' puts the fear of God into Islam

“South Park” could poke fun at Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Joseph Smith, David Blaine, or practically any other religious or cult figure, without any fear of repercussion....but not Islam.
When the ever-offensive creators of the popular Comedy Central cartoon “South Park” recently featured the Prophet Mohammed in a bear costume, they provoked a veiled death threat from some Islamist fanatics in New York and set off a firestorm about free speech in the process. The cable network’s cowardly response to Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s perfidy – namely, censoring the show and bleeping out any reference to the prophet – unintentionally triggered the kind of backlash that radical, fascist, jihadists should have earned a long time ago....The intolerance and insecurity that permeates Islam is plainly out there now and it’s impossible to ignore. Whatever those Muslims who would kill untold number of innocents in order to further their aims do going forward, they will lose – at least in America, if nowhere else. Original Article

A Stark, Dark Obama Clip

The Scent of Death

Columnist, Alan Caruba, wrote a recent article entitled, “A Whiff of Revolution,” in which he generally describes the people of the United States as being fed up and disgusted with federal politics.[1] Caruba rightly compares the actions by the federal government (particularly under Obama) to the actions by Great Britain just before the America Revolution, stating that “[i]t is the antithesis of a nation of laws, a republic.” Caruba predicts that Americans will eventually take this matter of freedom back into their own hands once again:
“If, between now and the midterm elections, the President and Congress pass the Cap-and-Trade Act and an amnesty for illegal aliens, I SUSPECT THAT SOME AMERICANS MAY NOT BE CONTENT TO SIT BY WHILE STATES AND THE COURTS WORK THEIR WAY WITHIN THE CONSTITUTION. They will sense—and rightfully so—a despotism never before associated with the presidency.” (emphasis added)
Caruba makes some valid points in his article and accurately describes a feeling of revolution prevalent throughout the country. However, I believe that a more thoughtful analysis must be attributed to what a real and successful revolution will compose.

Cookie sheet politics

The more I scan the Internet these days, the more disappointed I become, because of the ever-increasing superficiality, triviality, and truly aggressive contempt for the intelligence of the audience that characterizes so much of what passes for political discourse in this country. The average cookie sheet has more depth, and certainly produces a more palatable product, than the typical politically oriented Internet column or blog.
A glaring example is the recent creation by the Southern Poverty Law Center (“SPLC”) of a section on its web site entitled “Meet the ‘Patriots’”. Now, I must admit that I probably should not trouble myself (or the readers of my commentaries) with this matter had the SPLC not chosen to “profile” me among its list of “Patriots”. But, the SPLC having done so, I believe I am entitled to “return the compliment” as it were. Besides, the SPLC has provided me with “a teaching moment” which should not be wasted.
1. The most obvious demerit of the SPLC’s performance is its lack of basic logic. Throughout, “Meet the ‘Patriots’” is a patent example of the fallacy petitio principii (“begging the question”). The SPLC’s web site purports to present “profiles of 36 individuals at the heart of the resurgent” “antigovernment ‘Patriot’ movement”. Unfortunately—or, perhaps more likely, intentionally—the SPLC provides no definition of the key term “antigovernment ‘Patriot’ movement”. In what sense these “profiled” individuals are “antigovernment”, or in what sense they are merely faux “Patriots” rather than real patriots, or in what sense a real “patriot” can be “antigovernment” as a consequence of being a “patriot” the SPLC never explains. This renders the entire exercise nonscientific—because, without these definitions, the SPLC’s categorizations of the “36 individuals” as “antigovernment” and therefore somehow false or bad “Patriots” are neither verifiable nor falsifiable. They are simply crude propaganda below even the kindergarten level of reasoning.

Income Tax Myths and Fables

I recently had the honor of reviewing what I believe will be one of the most important books written in the last 50 years; “Income Tax: Shattering the Myths,” by Dave Champion. Mr. Champion presents a clear and concise understanding of the true nature of the income tax and more importantly to whom the tax applies.
In America today many people have come to the conclusion that there is something very wrong with our tax system. There is no question that the US government has the constitutional power to tax, but it is not an all-encompassing power. The Supreme Court has ruled that the power to tax is finite and enumerated. For roughly the first 140 years of our nation’s existence there was no individual income tax; and prior to 1913, each time the federal government tried to enact one, it was overturned by the Supreme Court as being unconstitutional.
We have all heard the term that “ignorance of the law is no excuse,” yet how many people file tax returns every year and have never read a law that makes them liable to do so. In 1913 there were only 400 pages of tax code; but by 2006 it had grown to over 66,498 pages. That’s an addition of over 1,300 pages of code added every year.

Phyllis Schlafly’s article “America Becomes a Two-Class Society” contains a breakthrough realization for conservatives: where 47% of citizens have a tax-free ride, the precipice of collapse is not far away. I spoke with Phyllis and asked her if she knew who the two classes are. Without hesitation, and as I expected, she said “Married and not married.” After adjusting for disability, joblessness, and retirement, this remains an unequivocal truth.
Phyllis’s discovery proves my long-held hierarchical assessment: “Marriage-absence is America’s greatest problem.” Let us examine the reasons why this is true.
Social expenditures (which arise primarily due to marriage-absence) increased last year to perhaps $1-trillion – still the largest federal budget line-item for many years. http://www.newswithviews.com/Usher/david192.htm

Serve soul food at republican events??

RNC Chairman Michael Steele said the GOP has not given Blacks a reason to vote republican. As a black conservative republican, I ask, what is the GOP suppose to do; serve soul food at republican events? In other words, I reject the concept of dividing Americans into victimized groups and pandering to them. Besides, the democrats are masters of insulting the intelligence of Americans by playing the old and tattered victim, race and class envy cards. The GOP does not need to go down the same shameful disgusting road.
Brother Steele, how about the GOP showing a little respect for the American people by standing up for conservative values and principles. If you do this, they will come. Right minded Americans of all stripes will join our cause. http://www.newswithviews.com/Marcus/lloyd129.htm

Divine Liberty

Thomas Jefferson--and the rest of America's founders--believed that freedom was the principal possession, because liberty is a divine--not human--gift. Listen to Jefferson:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men." (Declaration of Independence)
Jefferson could not be clearer: America's founders desired a land in which men might live in liberty. By declaring independence from the government of Great Britain (and instituting new government), Jefferson, et al., did not intend to erect an idol (government) that men would worship. They created a mechanism designed to protect that which they considered to be their most precious possession: liberty. In other words, the government they created by the Constitution of 1787 was not the object; freedom's protection was the object. http://www.newswithviews.com/baldwin/baldwin585.htm

We don’t like his white half either!

The TEA Party folks are a mixed bag of people opposed to redistribution of wealth and loss of freedom. Although they may have differed in the past on a variety of issues, a recent Pew Research poll says 22 percent trust the government so that leaves 78 percent who distrust their government. They are patriotic Americans united against the current administration’s “hoax and chains” dictatorial policies and this is driving people like former President Bill Clinton and his cronies, who associate with groups like SEIU and former ACORN a little crazy! I understand ACORN is re-organizing and applying for federal funding under a variety of different state names.
So once again using Marxist Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals which have been successful in the past, Clinton has been selected to be the pit bull to demonize the Tea Party folks with his inflammatory rhetoric going so far as to suggest the participants are nothing more than racists and comparing them to Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing which, by the way, occurred on Clinton’s watch. And the parrots in the mainline media then follow up with their insane accusations. Liberal radio talk show host Ed Schultz lost his cool recently with a Tea Party caller and yelled the person should get off his show, go get his gun and march. And then there is Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer from California in the fight of her life to save her Senate seat. The president flew to California for the fundraising event and ironically, she told her supporters to get as excited as the Tea Party folks. Go figure!
If the TEA Party folks are racist,
why are so many blacks beginning to join the movement, which the liberal media tries to avoid as they pan their cameras over the crowds? I received an e-mail of a photograph of a reader board that said, “We are not racists! We don’t like his white half either!”

Pressure mounting to legalize immigrants

They've pushed and pulled, marched on the national Mall and issued demands - including some to the president, which the White House hustled to meet - and now, immigrant rights groups find they've forced immigration and legalization to the top of the crowded congressional agenda. The next test of their power will come Saturday, when the groups hope to turn out hundreds of thousands of supporters in rallies across the country, all demanding that Congress and Mr. Obama slow interior enforcement and move to legalize illegal immigrants.

The U.S. military cancels nuclear attack test

The U.S. military has canceled a major field exercise that tests its response to a nuclear attack, angering some officials who say that what is now planned for this month will be a waste of time. U.S. Northern Command in Colorado withdrew from major participation in this month's National Level Exercise (NLE), a large-scale drill that tests whether the military and the Department of Homeland Security can work with local governments to respond to an attack or natural disaster. The exercise was canceled recently after the planned site for a post-nuclear-attack response — Las Vegas — pulled out in November... Original Article

Now we have the ash cloud conspiracy

Britain's airspace was closed under false pretences, with satellite images revealing there was no doomsday volcanic ash cloud over the entire country. Skies fell quiet for six days, leaving as many as 500,000 Britons stranded overseas and costing airlines hundreds of millions of pounds. However, new evidence shows there was no all-encompassing cloud and, where dust was present, it was often so thin that it posed no risk. The satellite images demonstrate that the skies were largely clear, which will not surprise the millions who enjoyed the fine, hot weather during the flight ban. Original Article

Obama making the world more dangerous

The tone against the Obama administration over its Israel policy is sharpening on both sides of the aisle, with one Republican congressman charging that the president is “increasing danger” in the world.

The rule of law returns...for now

My daddy used to say, “If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself!”
After 30 years of the U.S. Congress and four presidents failing to enforce our immigration laws-- Arizona, led by State Senator Russell Pearce and a brave band of lawmakers—passed SB 1070, the most diligent and forceful immigration law in the nation.
In excess of 460,000 criminal illegal aliens find themselves facing, for the first time in 30 years, the rule of law. As Barney Fife said, “Andy, if we allow those criminals to get away with breaking the law, we’ll just get more of ‘em.”
“You’re right,” Sheriff Taylor said. “Go arrest them and let’s get things back to normal in Mayberry.”
“We’re tired of tens of thousands of stolen vehicles,” one Arizona citizen said. “We’re the kidnapping capital of America. Arizonans fear for their lives daily.

The destiny of mankind

Having fought and won the American Revolution, the first citizens of this country with few exceptions considered individual liberty an inalienable birthright and committed this nation to preserve that liberty at all cost. Now, over two hundred years later, the struggle for freedom has faded into the distant memories of nearly every politican and the desire to be free at all cost has been replaced by the desire to be provided for at all cost.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are remarkable not for their understanding of our nation’s original principles and their commitment to preserve and protect them but for their zeal to expend the nation’s treasure on all manner of entitlements for special interests, transforming a limited government dedicated to liberty into an unlimited one dedicated to control and the divvying up of spoils, rendering all commerce that was once private into commerce so heavily regulated that it is inescapably public. To them, while their own liberty may be precious, they have little respect for everyone else’s; their every public act and their every vote is for measures that to one degree or another sacrifice individual liberty for political control.

Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods

"This study was just routine," said Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov, in what could end up as the understatement of this century. Surov and his colleagues set out to discover if Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. What he discovered may uproot a multi-billion dollar industry.
After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate among the pups.
And if this isn't shocking enough, some in the third generation even had hair growing inside their mouths - a phenomenon rarely seen, but apparently more prevalent among hamsters eating GM soy.

Financial Con Game

There are those who have been talking about a single global regulator for years and as a result of the 2008 Credit Crisis, there have been calls to protect you and me from future banking crises through new financial reform. However, we had better consider its real impact. It is not about protecting you and me it is about changing the national regulatory laws of America to conform to a world governmental system and globalizing the last barrier separating individual nation-states. It is about a major power grab of America’s financial assets. As a result of the high stakes, we should ask if Republicans are being told they had better vote for financial reform so we don’t have another September/October, 2008? All of a sudden Senators McConnell and Shelby have had a sea change and are willing to work together on changing our banking system. It is a ruse, a con game when they say they are making the system safer. Let us review some necessary points.
As we consider the events of the past 18 months, we are confronted with a great deal of action, uncertainty, negativity, and pillaging of wealth. In order to understand where we are today and where we are going, we need to review the chicanery of the past eleven years.

Hawking: 'Only have to look at ourselvesto see how intelligent life might develop'
Hawking’s logic on aliens is, for him, unusually simple. The universe, he points out, has 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of millions of stars. In such a big place, Earth is unlikely to be the only planet where life has evolved...Hawking believes that contact with such a species could be devastating for humanity.
He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.”

Legalize marijuana? Not so fast

There's a sense among a lot of Californians that legalizing marijuana and then taxing it is some sort of panacea that would solve many law enforcement problems, make it safer to smoke pot and also produce a tax bonanza of $1 billion or more per year. Voters will see just such a proposal in November. Much of the pro-legalization thinking is based on analogies to the alcohol experience, which sees various forms of booze putting about $3 billion into the coffers of state and local governments each year and providing more than 300,000 jobs around the state.

Revisionist historians

At this year’s Quadricentennial, officials are intent on belittling our nation’s Christian heritage and referring to the Jamestown settlers as bloodthirsty cannibals, environmental terrorists, and even worse. They have gone so far as to ban the word ‘celebration’ because, after all, as one official stated, “You can’t celebrate an invasion.”
At the State of the Black Union Jamestown Conference, Rev. Otis Moss, as part of a panel discussion with Rev.’s Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, invoked a highly charged comparison to Nazism and the KKK, declaring that the Jamestown settlers were guilty of mass ‘holocaust’ and ‘lynchings’. This is how they described Captain John Smith, Pocahantas and the rest of the Virginia Company, which is totally unfounded, inaccurate, not to mention irresponsible.
This is the type of ‘teaching’ that goes on today. There is no reference to the actual history of our nation, just what some revisionist historians want it to be. http://www.newswithviews.com/Anghis/roger110.htm

Liberal mainstream media all but call me an Uncle Tom. Their reports imply that I am a token black too stupid to realize I am being used by the tea party movement. In typical liberal mainstream media arrogance, they are totally blind to the blatant racism of their reporting.
Because I do not fit the liberal mainstream media's "all blacks must vote Democrat and believe America is racist and unjust" template, I must be an idiot. As a matter of fact, because I am a black man who loves his country and proclaims America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it, much of liberal media considers me dangerous and even wishes me harm. http://www.newswithviews.com/Marcus/lloyd128.htm

George Will defines moral hazard

Mr. Will, trying to define moral hazard, and experts trying to define reasons for such a psychotic abuse of bureaucratic behavior, failed. In an example of a moral hazard, the SEC attorneys and accountants succeeded. Such irony!
George Will says a moral hazard occurs when one entity determines how much risk it can lawfully take while another entity, called “taxpayers” with no power to control the actions of Entity #1, is forced to pay for greed-driven mistakes that result.
Most business writers discussing the new financial institution regulatory control to be voted on tomorrow (Monday) agree with Will. Though technically correct, I disagree with the depth – or lack of it – in the definition.
There is a need for definitional clarity. How many times over the years have I heard Rush Limbaugh say, “Words have meaning”? They do. But how many of us define clearly in our minds the words we use when we speak? So many people ask how we lost our Republic. So few are aware the definitions of words used to protect our Constitution have been totally changed. It’s been a very subtle process and occurred over a long period of time. http://www.newswithviews.com/Barnewall/marilyn135.htm

It Worked So Well For Bush

Whenever President Bush talked about immigration, his approval ratings went down. It was like clockwork: liberals never understood that the fatal decline in Bush's popularity during his second term had at least as much to do with his advocacy of "comprehensive immigration reform" as with war-weariness. Now President Obama has entered the lists, urging Congress to take up immigration. One can only wonder what Congressional Democrats make of this. Maybe they figure their own approval ratings can't possibly get any lower. But Obama's can, and they will if he keeps talking about immigration. Original Article

Guess which political party is dedicated to funding “the training of an army of independent community organizers to help people establish and run neighborhood groups?” It’s the British Conservative Party.
This “conservative” movement has actually adopted the idea of creating a “Big Society” as an alternative to Big Government.

• A new “Big Society Bank,”• A “National Citizen Service,”• An annual “Big Society Day” to celebrate the work of neighborhood groups and encourage more people to take part in social action.

All-out spiritual war

The enemy’s strategy is to nudge. In the name of tolerance, diversity and unity we’ve been nudged into normalizing sodomy. In some states, public school children are actually being taught how to become homosexual or bisexual. They’re being taught that cross-dressing’s okay, too. Society is being forced into accepting controversial sexual lifestyles to include same-sex “marriage.” More and more “gender confused” individuals are opting for “sex reassignment surgery” which is doublespeak for what was once called a “sex-change operation.” Mixed-up men and women have the surgery to change their genital organs from one gender to another. Worse yet, some supposedly “gender confused” children are wondering if they should be surgically altered! What’s next?
“Terisa Greenan and her boyfriend, Matt, are enjoying a rare day of Seattle sun, sharing a beet carpaccio on the patio of a local restaurant. Matt holds Terisa's hand, as his 6-year-old son squeezes in between the couple to give Terisa a kiss. His mother, Vera, looks over and smiles; she's there with her boyfriend, Larry. Suddenly it starts to rain, and the group must move inside. In the process, they rearrange themselves: Matt's hand touches Vera's leg. Terisa gives Larry a kiss. The child, seemingly unconcerned, puts his arms around his mother and digs into his meal.” (
It seems more and more people are opting for “multiple-partner families.” And the traditionalist had better get used to it. You ask, “Isn’t multi-partner relationships confusing to youngsters?” Who cares?! We’ll test the waters and see the effects on children a few years down the road. Meanwhile it’s important for parents (supposed adults) to be fulfilled. In our self-actualized culture, individuals feel they should enjoy themselves without regret or apology. People should live the present moment to the fullest…right? Sadly, many men and women are way more concerned with what makes “me” happy than with what is best for their children.


New Spirituality: Old Lie

The Cult of Oprah
Rightly named one of the 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century by Time magazine, Oprah Winfrey likewise received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (1998). Oprah purports to serve “a higher good.” She boasts having “a contract with the universe” and, in its execution, is numbered as a foremost spiritual authority among swamis, yogis and Tibetan masters.
Arguably the most influential woman in the world, Oprah Winfrey gushes over the unimaginably creative, never-before-seen visuals and profound spiritual lessons to be derived from Avatar. Everyone, she insists, must see it. Lessons to which Oprah alludes are soundly embedded in the doctrinal grids of her endorsees. Her theology incorporates a worldview that sociologist Philip Rieff calls “the therapeutic society.” It is obsessed with self, thus raising self-preoccupation to the level of religious duty.
The fact remains: Whom Oprah endorses, the world embraces.

America's government illegitimate as Obama is

In a recent article written by JB Williams entitled, “DC Knows that Obama is Ineligible for Office,”[1] Williams highlights some facts signaling that the federal government, the main-stream media and those closely related to both know that Barak Obama is ineligible to be the President of the United States of America under the U.S. Constitution.
Williams cites these facts in support of his assertion:
- Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party did not certify that Obama qualified to run as a candidate for President of the U.S., but only that Obama was the Democratic Party candidate;
- the news media previously and numerously referred to Obama as “Kenya-born” before he ran for President. Afterwards, “Kenya-born” was dropped;
- Obama has spent over 2 billion dollars in hiding what they say exists (his birth certificate) and supposedly have in hand;
- the Justice Department is doing everything they possibly can to keep Americans from pursing Obama’s eligibility in court;
- federal judges have dismissed over 400 hundred court cases on Obama’s eligibility, ruling that these citizens do not have standing to know who is acting as President of the U.S.;
- Michelle Obama has described Barak’s home as being the country of Kenya;
Williams is not alone, of course, in the conclusion that Obama is an illegitimate President and that his illegitimacy is being covered up by Congress, the federal courts, those in the Republican and Democratic national parties and others. Ever since Obama campaigned for U.S. President, millions in America have raised his eligibility as a fundamental concern for the integrity of the U.S. Constitution and rule of law, all to no avail.
It is not only “average Joe” who believes Obama is illegitimate, but state governments are expressing the same notion. The state of Arizona has recently passed a law, expected to be signed by the governor, which declares that Barak Obama must prove his U.S. citizenship before being permitted to be on the ballot in 2012.

The Pentagon's test launch of two unmanned space vehicles Thursday highlights efforts to develop a generation of high-altitude, high-speed weapons systems that could make the heavens a new battleground. At Cape Canaveral, Fla., the Air Force went ahead with the long-anticipated maiden flight of the troubled X-37B space plane, which launches vertically into orbit on the back of an Atlas rocket but descends into the atmosphere and lands itself, as the space shuttle does. The X-37B has been in development for more than 10 years Original Article

Evangelist Franklin Graham said Thursday that he regrets the Army's decision to rescind its invitation to him for the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer service on May 6, but expressed "strong support" for the U.S. military. An Army spokesman confirmed to Fox News that the invitation to Graham to be honorary chairman at the event was rescinded amid complaints from Muslim members of the military about his description of Islam as an evil religion. The Army spokesman said the event will go forward but without the National Day of Prayer Task Force participating.

Dairy gestapo rousts farmer

Federal agents invaded an Amish farm in Pennsylvania at 5 a.m. to inspect cow-milking facilities then followed up the next day with a written notice that the farmer was engaged in interstate sale of raw milk in violation of the Public Health Services Act.
A failure to correct the situation could result in "seizure and/or injunction," the warning letter from Kirk Sooter, district director of the Philadelphia office of the Department of Health and Human Services, told farmer Dan Allgyer of Kinzer, Pa., on Wednesday.
The farm invaded Tuesday is the one
agents visited in February, driving past "Private Property" signs to demand Allgyer open his property for their inspection, saying, " You have cows. You produce food for human consumption."
The case is being publicized by
the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association, which promotes traditional methods of linking farmers with consumers. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=144557

Picking up the human pieces of 9/11

While much of New York has tried to return to normal since September 11, 2001, the search for victims of the World Trade Center attacks goes on every day.
