Time to Kick some Liberal Ash

Indonesia isn’t the only place on earth with an active volcano. There’s another one set to explode on November 2, 2010. Geologists tell us that Democrats are already spewing flames; getting all worked up to pop their tops come Tuesday. But conservatives have the perfect response to the coming meltdown. Word on the street has it that the Tea Party is truly going to kick some serious ash!

Kicking AshThis conservative pyroclastic flow has been pent up for nearly two years. The pressure has been steadily increasing and the flow has become impossible to contain. The neat thing about a pyroclastic flow is that the turbulent mixture of Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, reborn conservatives, constitutional enthusiasm, and unsorted patriotic emotions can move at high speed. This means that in a single day the volcanic patriotic votes will move East to West: obliterating socialism from Pennsylvania to Ohio, from Utah to Nevada, and from Kentucky, to Florida – where Charlie Crist will be burned to a crisp by a harmonic tremor; a continuous release of conservative seismic energy emitted by the underground Tea Party movement of political magma. Now dude! That is going to be one sweet blast!

Pollsters in Massachusetts report that Barney Frank’s campaign headquarters has been identified as a central point in a New England Ring of Fire. Normally associated (pun intended – think about it) with Frank’s hemorrhoids, the ring of fire will be quenched by a plug – solidified Republican lava that is predicted to fill the conduit to Frank’s volcano. The Sean Bielat plug, as it has become known in geologic circles, first manifested itself when it plugged up Martha Coakley’s quest to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat (another intended pun) with a hard core Scott Brown. Now the plug, usually more resistant to electoral erosion than the sputtering froth spewing from Frank’s bombastic cone – will hopefully be left standing – a solitary pinnacle to conservatism in Frank’s Congressional District when the rest of Frank’s hedonistic rhetoric has eroded away.

In a first for Wisconsin, the pyroclastic flow is expected to cut more than just cheese in the upper Midwest. Russ Feingold, the liberal incumbent Senator from Wisconsin, is scheduled to be squeezed by a heterolithologic mix of different voter types. Instead of being voted out by disgruntled conservatives, Feingold will fall Tuesday to a coalition of disgruntled Democrats, infuriated Tea Partiers, angry independents, and the occasional soccer mom. After the pyroclastic flow hits Milwaukee, the only course left for Feingold will be to ride out of town on a blazing hot Harley Davidson, with a backpack of old limburger leaving no doubt that Feingold took one too many left turns.

For sheer pleasure, the pyroclastic flow will cover San Francisco, where Nancy Pelosi is steadfastly refusing to admit that her ash is getting kicked.  What’s more, when she returns to the halls of Congress for the Lame Duck session, it is widely anticipated that her ash is going to get kicked again and again. First, she will lose her position as Speaker of the House – a position she has used and abused. Second, Democrats are in revolt over their losses and will likely kick Pelosi’s ash themselves, perhaps even denying her the position of Minority Leader. Geologists predict that Pelosi’s face is going to crack under the pressure, creating a pit crater formed by the Botox sinking deep into her skin – which will prevent her from venting any more of her eruptions. Pelosi will find herself square in the middle of a rift zone, which is a zone of liberal volcanic features associated with underlying dykes…uh, strike that…meant underlying dikes. Impartial observers will be able to detect Pelosi’s location in the political mess by marking her cracks, faults, and vents. Considering the plethora of such things on her face, it is anticipated that NASA will forego the cost of putting more satellites in geosynchronous orbit and instead triangulate Pelosi’s face to create the first liberal GPS system.

And let us not forget Searchlight, Nevada. It seems the entire pyroclastic flow is aimed right at Harry’s Reed! It will be so hot that the Reed is going to go limp. Harry will run but there will be no place to hide. It has been eons since Searchlight has been flooded, but all things come to those who wait. Searchlight is going to be drenched by a Teanami. Can you say “two of every kind?”

Meanwhile, back at the White House, or perhaps even in India, a splatter cone will erupt. The socialist splatter cone will be identified by a low, steep-sided cone of splatter denial built up on a fissure or vent of unrestrained paranoia and narcissism. Noises usually associated with splatter cones include “What, Me Worry?” and “They are going to have to negotiate with me cuz’ I’m still the president!” The White House Press Corp(se)men will rush to explain away the splatter cone to a gullible public. The Lame Stream Media will rationalize the presence of the splatter cone with excuses such as “the minions are angry, uneducated morons who don’t appreciate the brilliance of Dear Leader,” and “Let them eat cake!” However, the public is gullible no more and a subduction zone is predicted to occur with the socialist tectonic plate being overridden by the Tea Party tectonic plate, which is an irresistible force slamming into an entirely movable object.  Despite the massive collision of tectonic plates creating the subduction zone; the tilt of the Obama Administration is going to tilt even more to the left. This tilt will remain firmly in place until 2012 when, geologists say, it will be utterly and completely destroyed by a Tuff ring – a wide-eyed, low-rimmed, well-embedded accumulation of conservative anger built around a volcanic vent located at the U.S. Capitol and aimed directly at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Scientists claim that the Tuff ring will emit such an eruption that those who flee to Chicago might as well continue on to Kenya, because the ejecta will make it unsafe for liberals most everywhere in North America. The commies and tree-huggers may well be forced underground with their little RINO friends, to spend the rest of their miserable lives wondering how they cratered in such a spectacular manner in such a short timeframe.

Two years of living through a communist nightmare has turned the American public into this irresistible force. As disasters go, the Obama regime has been a classic. But out of desperation and necessity the American people are rising up. Election Day is Tuesday. Redemption is here. There is nowhere for the socialists to hide. The Teanami has just reached shore. The waves are piling up so high that Donkeys no longer have time to learn how to swim.

America, this is your time. You are the ones you’ve been waiting for. Get down and dirty. Go kick some liberal ash!

The election is so close that even Barack can see it from his house. Coming at cha’, Barry. It is too late to hide, Barack.  You should have listed to Noah. Oh well, live and learn.

Ark, Ark!

Murkowski Campaign Touts Her RINO’ness as a Positive

Joe Miller will remove RINO Murkowski from CongressLisa Murkowski’s write-in effort is putting her close to Joe Miller.  I wanted to understand what very Conservative Alaska voters saw in her over a truly Conservative Joe Miller.  First, her campaign website.  The entire web site talks about her career in Washington (emphasis mine):

With Lisa Murkowski, a known brand in the Senate with a demonstrated ability to work across the aisle

She’s actually bragging about being a RINO.  Is she?  Could some off her votes be questionable when measured against Conservative principles?  Well, at a glance, she didn’t vote with Republicans on one out-of-four votes.  Digging into the individual issues she voted on, here’s what I found:

Just since September 13th of this year she has failed to vote 13 times.  There were only 17 possible votes, so she failed to service Alaska as their Senator 75% of the time in the last two months!!  Some of those votes would have benefited from her participation.  In every case, she would have been one more vote for the Conservatives in Congress and stood against the fiscally irresponsible Democrats.  Instead she avoided the conflict and gave a silent nod to the progressive agenda.  Here’s a sampling from The Washington Post (emphasized notes are mine):

Vote 245: H R 3081: Thune Amdt. No. 4676; To reduce spending other than national security spending by 5 percent. – She didn’t vote – same as voting Democrat on this issue

Vote 238: On the Cloture Motion: Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Proceed to S. 3454; National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 – She Didn’t Vote – same as voting Democrat on this issue

Vote 231: To repeal the expansion of information reporting requirements for payments of $600 or more – This clause in Obamacare is a small business and jobs killer.  Repealing it would relieve small businesses like the fisherman in Alaska, from having to report every purchase or sale over $600 as an individual item.  This is also a step towards repealing the whole of the government take over of health care – She Didn’t Vote – same as voting Democrat on this issue.

Vote 230: On the Nomination: Confirmation Jane Branstetter Stranch, of Tennessee, to be U.S. Circuit Judge for the Sixth Circuit.  While the sixth circuit does not include Alaska, we have all seen how important U.S. Court of Appeals judges can be (Arizona immigration law, defense of marriage, right to bear arms, etc).  Any Conservative should jump at the chance to ensure that good constitutional constructionist judges are put on benches whenever they can – She Didn’t Vote – same as voting Democrat on this nomination

This is just in the past six weeks.  Imagine the damage she’s done to the Country over her entire career in Congress as a true RINO.  She may well have voted “present” more times than Obama if the option were made available, instead, she just didn’t vote at all.  As if to put an exclamation point on her RINO-voting tendencies, the American Conservative Union gave her voting record a 68% in 2009 – far worse than even the accomplished RINO John McCain.  To prove the point, when asked who she would caucus with, Murkowski alarmingly responded that she would Caucus with just about everyone including “Greens” and “Democrats”. When pressed by CNN she told them this:

She skirted the issue when asked what party she would caucus with in the new Congress and said she would be returning to represent “Alaskans interest,” instead of the Republican Party’s.

So she won’t be caucusing with the Republicans?  Guess that’ll show those Republican Alaskans that voted her out in the primaries .. or something.

So what was Lisa Murkowski doing while being paid by U.S. taxpayers?

Lisa is asking Alaka’s voters to re-elect her based on her record.  Well, here’s her real record, hopefully Alaskans are paying attention.

Morgan Freeman Impersonator Does Voice Over in B.J. Lawson Ad

In a video release on Friday, Morgan Freeman allegedly* narrated a truthful expose on Price’s record.  Price has done little other than run very negative attack ads against B.J. Lawson.  What choice does Rep. Price have?  His record is terrible and there is no way he can run on that.

The ad has since been pulled from Lawson’s website and the candidate apologized to Freeman for the confusion and said that they had been duped by a Los Angeles political consulting firm.

Later, Lawson’s campaign said the political firm M.E.I. Political of Los Angeles was responsible. The company did not return a call seeking comment Monday.

Associated Press is reporting that there is now a statement from Freemen’s publicist that he did not record the ad.  Lawson’s campaign staff has responded.
Lawson and campaign manager Martin Avila initially said Freeman did the ad. Avila later backed off that claim, saying the campaign had a contract signed for a Freeman ad with Los Angeles-based agency M.E.I. Political. The agency did not return a call seeking comment.

Stewart Rally – Comedy Central Ad or Democrat GOTV Event

Jon Stewart and elmoSupposedly, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert hope to host the Restoring Honor Fear Democrats rally in an effort to give all the people in the middle a voice.  Mainly sighting Beck as the extreme vision with little attention  to Maddow or Mathew’s extreme left views, they hope to get us all to tone down the rhetoric .. or something.

At first is sounds both apolitical and non-partisan, but the Democrat’s concern that the rally would suck up all their GOTV (get out the vote) staff, led them to work out a way to use the event and the people attending it.

We reported that the left-wing moneybags (Huffington and Oprah) were already working to buy Jon and Stephen a crowd.  That should certainly worry the DNC as those two women play host to a very liberal audience.  It also starts to put visible cracks into Stewart’s assertion that the rally is about the middle – or perhaps it’s his opinion on where exactly that middle is.  Are Maddow, Mathews and CNN the “middle”?

To really start the rally off with an apolitical slant, Stewart had the non-partisan .. Obama on his show this week.  On the show the President and Stewart both looked silly and the clown act insulted anyone even mildly-informed in the political arena.  As Chris Stigall put it on Big Hollywood:

It was uncomfortable because the President of the United States was taking a voluntary scolding by a clown on a low-rated cable show.  Uncomfortable, too for most informed voters who realize Stewart’s line of questions made Obama’s radical agenda sound conservative..

..“You ran with such, if I may, audacity,” Stewart said. “Yet, legislatively, it has felt timid at times. I’m not sure, at times, what you want out of health care.”

Timid?  Are you serious?  If this is what Stewart thinks is the middle, he’s looking at a statistical sampling of some European socialist mess.  Most Americans want that thing repealed, not strengthened.

Ok, so how is Stewart’s plan to de-politicize his rally going?

  • Step 1: Create an atmosphere for America’s middle by busing/flying in thousands of  liberals – CHECK
  • Step 2: Remove politics by having the most visible leader of a progressive left-wing agenda on show week of the event – CHECK

Now he needs to make at non-partisan.  Of course the DNC will help with that too.  The Examiner posted this little gem on Thursday.

Facing dire prospects at the polls, Organizing for America, the permanent incarnation of the Obama presidential campaign, is looking for help from Saturday’s Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert “nonpartisan” rally on the Mall. “We need folks to turn the energy from that rally into action by contacting key voters across the country and making sure they have a plan to vote by November 2nd,” Organizing for America officials say in a new email to supporters. “That’s why we’re holding a special phone bank just after the rally.”

But at least the entertainment is apolitical, right?:

..and the stage Saturday was stacked with entertainers associated with Democratic causes or Obama’s 2008 campaign.  – Fox News

Yup – Step 3: Make rally non-partisan by NOT denouncing the connection of a DNC phone bank to the rally (or politely asking them not to make a connection to it) – CHECK

If Stewart wanted to see what a non-partisan, apolitical rally looks like he should have gone to D.C. in August.  No phone banks, no signs, Beck didn’t have Boehner on his show the week of the event (he did have Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece on).

The rally will likely be larger than the One Nation and Restoring Honor rallies.  It should be anyway, it’s not a grass roots anything.  It’s a half-day long Comedy Central commercial.  Arranged and orchestrated by Viacom, transportation paid for by Oprah and Huffington, and after show activities (including food and drinks) by the DNC.

So if this is Jon and Stephen’s answer to 8-28 “Restoring Honor” they are answering “faith, hope, and charity” with Ariana Huffington, Obama, and the Democratic National Convention – Honor vs. Self-interest.  Way to go Jon.

*Update*

Restoring Sanity Crowd Photo

From Reuters

Yup, looks like a pretty good sized crowd.  I heard the rally was highly entertaining, good job Viacom. I was busy removing lint balls from one of my socks, but what I did catch looked like Jon and Stephen pretending to argue over pretty much nothing.  If people took these two professional clowns for more than just comedians, today must have been disappointing.

Anderson Cooper Isn’t Sure What is Offensive Anymore

Tonight CNN’s Anderson Cooper says that he found terms like “fag” and “queer” offensive and could not imagine anyone uttering them.  Yes in 2009, Mr. Cooper had no problem using the sexually explicit and certainly-offensive term in reference to a large swath of the American Conservative movement.

It’s hard to talk when you’re tea-bagging..

Yeah, walk that better-than-thou path while espousing how hard it is to have a conversation while performing a sexual act.  That’s almost as professional as Joy Behar’s self-loving attitude-fest.

What Will Happen on November 3rd : Saturday Open Thread

The energy has been fantastic, the drive great, but .. what happens once Tuesday has passed?

I believe that only two outcomes are possible: either the wave will be the tsunami everyone has predicted, or there will be a smaller wave with questionable implications on progressive power.

Either way, what will happen to the Conservative movement that has gained strength in the last 2-3 years?  What will our parts be in it?  What are our next steps?

What do YOU think will become of the Conservative movement on Wednesday, November 3rd?

Cargo Planes, Trucks Eyed in Terrorism Plot

This post will be updated as new information comes in.

Friday brought a torrent of activity to UPS and international security officials.  A UPS plane in Newark, NJ and two at the airport in  Philadelphia, PA were being held due to suspicious packages and possible involvement in a Yemen terror plot.  Several packages suspected of containing radiological materials have been removed from those planes.  The crew members tested negative for radioactive material exposure, but the event  led to a worldwide ‘abundance of caution’ creating bomb scares throughout the United States.

15 total packages from Yemen were being sought on Friday for examination by United States counter-terrorism officials.  An additional 26 were being sought as of Saturday morning.  Fragmented reports hinted that these packages could have been part of an Al Qaeda “dry run” to test the vulnerability of cargo planes.  Homeland Security adviser John Brennan said the packages on cargo planes “could have done harm”, but had been “made inert” which indicates more than a dry run.  White House officials have continued to to press that this was a real attack because the packages were designed to do harm and contained explosives.  White House officials stated that two of the packages held PETN, the same material used by the Christmas Day and ShoeBomber plots.  AP had an anonymous source earlier in the day that stated that the package confiscated in Dubai contained explosives, but the location of the second explosive package has not yet been confirmed.

While Dubai appears to have been the trigger for the counter-terrorist reactions, the device found in England was one of the first indications of a real threat. A BBC report states that at 3:28am Friday morning a suspicious package was found in a central England UPS distribution center located at the East Midlands airport. The report stated  that the device found in England was not a bomb, but ‘potentially sinister’.  The language with which the device was characterized started the ‘dry run’ theories.  That device has sense gone to a laboratory for examination. CNN provided an image of the device.  Another CNN report suggested that the explosives in these devices may be up to twice as potent as that used by the underwear bomber:

Two suspicious packages found abroad that were bound for Jewish organizations in the United States contained a massive amount of explosive material that — had the suspected terror plot not been thwarted — would have triggered a powerful blast, a source close to the investigation said Friday..

..By comparison, the source said the two devices found Friday contained multiple times more PETN.

And of course, the report contained our favorite phrase of the day:

The TSA said authorities acted “out of an abundance of caution.”

No official statement has been made as to those behind the plot, but a report from Guardian.co.uk now states that U.S. officials believe that the mastermind of the Cargo plane bomb plot is none other than the New Mexico born Islamic cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki.  As if to confirm the Guardian report, at a Friday afternoon press conference the President confirmed that the packages originated from Yemen and that at least one package found in the last 24 hours contained explosives.  Obama also hinted that Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is connected, but he stopped short of directly blaming the organization.  The President asserted that the government will spare no effort in tracking down the exact source of the packages.

Many preventative actions have been taken as a result of Friday:

  • The Department of Homeland Security increased aviation security level to Orange (high), while leaving the Nation threat level at Yellow (elevated).
  • Fedex is now halting all shipments from Yemen.
  • East Midlands Airport’s freight area remains shut down

The Yemen bomb plot created a very wary environment where many false alarms were triggered:

  • Emerites Air flight #201 en route from Dubai to New York’s JFK airport landed safely (and on-time) while having been escorted by two F-15 fighter jets.  The reason for the escort was suspicion of a package from Yemen on the airplane.  The FBI’s investigation of the airplane’s cargo yielded no package from Yemen.
  • Six suspicious packages were removed from planes in Philadelphia and have been deemed ‘not a threat’, but planes remained on the ground for several hours
  • Plane in Newark, NJ was cleared on to its destination after the suspicious packages had been off-loaded to trucks.  This led to UPS trucks in Brooklyn and Queens, NY being stopped and searched.  No suspicious materials found.
  • Suspicious package had been  found near the courthouse in Portland, Maine  and was found to be no threat.
  • Suspected package on Market St. in front of Bank of America building in downtown San Fransisco now given “All Clear”
  • New York City police investigated UPS trucks in Brooklyn and Queens, NY.  NYPD has cleared the trucks and released them without incident.

Yemen authorities arrested Hanan al Samawi on Saturday under suspicion that the 22 year-old female computer science student had sent the packages containing the bombs.  According the NBC News, her lawyer says that Samawi is being setup and had nothing to do wit the terror plot.

Abdul Rahman Barman confirmed that al Samawi’s phone number was on the packages, but he said he believes it was used by some other entity, NBC News said. He also said al-Qaida does not leave obvious traces in its operations

On Sunday it was discovered that some of the devices were set to explode over Western cities, conflicting with reports that the devices were aimed at Chicago area religious institutions.

Liberals Attack the Right with Anti-Women Slurs

The National Organization of Women (NOW) has been such a staunch supported of the liberal establishment that it is hard to believe that liberals are attacking .. women!  Wait, I thought it was us chivalrous.. oops .. misogynistic Conservatives that always denigrated women.  It’s so hard to keep track of which evil thing we are now adays.

If my views of women are conflicted, maybe it’s because of actions from the alleged keepers of women’s rights: the left.

Today, Gawker released an article too offensive and maddening to even link to.  If you want to read that piece of garbage, hit up your favorite search engine. Suffice it to say that Gawker PAID someone to lie about having a one-nighter with Christine O’Donnell.  She’s come to within 5 points of Coons in a recent poll and the left-wing extremists are scared – this is there reaction.  To give you some sense of it, I’ll share a woman’s take on it.

From MichelleMalkin.com:

And today, it is Gawker running a filthy, paid anonymous hit piece on Christine O’Donnell that even other left-wingers have disavowed.

Salon: Gawker’s Christine O’Donnell tell-all backfires

Politics Daily’s Jill Lawrence: “Gawker on Christine O’Donnell is absolutely, totally, offensively out of line. Awful. You won’t get link from me.”

NOW can’t even stand to support these comments ..

Sounds like a lot of women aren’t quite thrilled with Gawker’s behavior, but that’s not the whole mess.  If you didn’t catch “The View” on Wednesday (most of us never catch that horrific attempt at intelligent debate), there were some interesting developments in the Joy Behar “Bitch” fiasco.

Many know about Behar’s woman-slurring bitch comment from the other day.  Well, Sharron Angle took the high-ground and sent Joy flowers.  Joy’s response?

There’s professionalism and respect for women.  Later in the segment Behar and Walters claim that now they are “Street fighters” .. so  much for objective analysis.  The show gets worse, later they have Joan Rivers on to remind women not to eat sperm .. due to the calorie content.  If this is what liberal women are watching.. they might just be their own worst enemy.

Entitlement Conundrum – Break Down the Numbers

Rasmussen reports released a report on Wednesday that shows that 23% of Americans receive some form of cash benefits from the almighty Federal government.  Twenty-three percent.

Almost one-in-four Americans rely on cash from the government?  How sad a situation we share.

On the other side of that entirely imbalanced equation is a government that produces .. NOTHING.  That means taxpayers are on the hook for the 1/4 of Americans that need hand-outs.

I could use the figures posted by many astute organizations that say that 47% of Americans pay zero or negative taxes, but I can hear the libdergardner whining already.  Instead, I’ll use CBS’s more ‘conservative’ fugures:

An astonishing 43.4 percent of Americans now pay zero or negative federal income taxes..

And that was in 2009.

So, 56.6% of us put money into a system that has 23% that are pulling from it.  The math is getting scary – to most of us.

Rasmussen continues: The 23% (we’ll call them .. 23ers in the spirit of the Unions 99er movement) are somewhat reluctant to let go of their free money.

Of those who do receive government money, just 34% are at least somewhat willing to cut some of their own benefits to reduce the size of the federal budget, with 14% who say they are Very Willing to do so.

Great, they love stealing bread from the tables of our children and most of them don’t care if our kids have to starve later because ,”It’s my money, and I want it now” to quote an annoying ad from a parasitic firm.

Sickening, upsetting .. I was laid-off a few years ago and took exactly zero dollars from the government.  We cut-off cable and cell phones, ran the AC less, discontinued magazines and newspapers, cut coupons and ate bulk-noodles.  We survived.

These are exactly the things we must cut.  Now.  It must be done responsibly as we have made far too many dependent upon the government’s drug.  We will have to let the retired and near-retired continue on, but those of us in our 40’s, 30’s and lower … be willing to give those entitlements up or our kids will be left with a mess that WE could have fixed.  We have to get over ourselves, yesterday.

Former Governor Pete du Pont Officially Endorses O’Donnell

Wilmington, DE– Former Republican Governor of Delaware Pete Du Pont has officially endorsed Christine O’Donnell, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate.

“It is my belief that Christine O’Donnell will represent the First State honorably in the United States Senate.

“As you know, she will be seated immediately following the November 2nd election making her votes all that more important to the citizens of our state.

“It is my hope that you will support Christine, as I am, and help her campaign move forward to victory.”

CLICK HERE to read more.

“Pete Du Pont was one of the greatest governors in the history of Delaware,” O’Donnell said. “I am extraordinarily honored to receive Governor Du Pont’s endorsement and aspire to live up to his standard of leadership and integrity while representing Delaware in the U.S. Congress and as governor of the First State.

“He proved the power of lowering taxes and shrinking government to bring about economic recovery to Delaware, and now he is fighting for Delaware to send that same common sense to Washington.”

Sharon Angle Ad: Stupid Things Harry Says

Today the Sharron Angle campaign released a new ad.  This one tracks the many gaffes of Senator Harry Reid who is currently trailing Angle in the polls.  This ad reminds us of the “war is lost” mishap and he offensive comments on a female colleague and even Barack Obama.  It opens the question of just who Nevadans feel should represent them in Congress.

Is Obama Evil? A commentary on Obama, Communism, and our Fight for Freedom

obama and communismI have written previously on the theme that Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetero, might be insane. It is a worthy topic, and deserves more play in journalistic circles than it is receiving. But after yesterday’s astonishing performance by Obama during a radio interview on Univision, there is another possibility that must also be explored. The question? –  Is Obama evil? That’s right, the big “E”. It isn’t an either/or situation. There is nothing preventing Obama from being both insane and evil. But let’s concentrate on the evil meme here. Like the insanity question, Obama’s state of morality deserves equal attention.

Returning to Obama’s radio performance, here’s the most relevant quotes:

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.” – Barack Obama

And as if that isn’t enough, here is a follow-up, in which Obama gives his opinion about Republicans such as Senator John McCain who support effective border security and strong immigration law enforcement.

“Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” – Barack Obama

We are witnessing a President of the United States literally declaring war on some of its citizens! Obama has just declared that Republicans are his enemy. He is inciting violence towards conservatives. He is demanding that Latinos be his enforcers against his sworn “enemies.” Obama, in essence is openly advocating racial warfare in The United States of America. He is making racist statements, imploring the Latinos to rise up and punish his “enemies”. That’s just great – a Nobel Peace Prize winner stumping for the punishment of his “enemies”. The man, who ran as a post-partisan uniter, has become the most divisive president in the history of this country.

Furthermore, Obama draws the lines of division quite clearly for us. Those American citizens who do not support his policies “aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” And just what ARE your core American values, Mister President? Would you care to elaborate?

Let’s take a guess. Obama’s core values constitute the following:

  • Destroy America’s ability to defend itself
  • Bankrupt America
  • Enrich himself and his cronies
  • Tear down border defenses and allow unbridled trespassing upon United States soil
  • Control the actions of American citizens via the rationing and withholding of medical care
  • Impose complete governmental control over the manufacturing sector of the economy
  • Impose complete governmental control over the financial industry
  • Impose complete governmental control over the press, wiping out Fox News and any other news organization that dares to broadcast or print opinions that oppose Obama’s agenda
  • Declare war upon American patriots
  • Indoctrinate children in Marxism
  • Apologize to the world for any and all instances of American exceptionalism
  • Destroy all carbon-based energy production companies
  • Impose control over every aspect of citizens’ lives
  • Incite class warfare
  • Incite racial warfare
  • Impose redistribution of wealth on a massive scale
  • Remove God from the lives of all Americans and replace the worship of God with the worship of the state and Obama
  • Create a system of central command and control over the economy through appointed Czars, bypassing the authority of the United States Congress
  • Make the courts of the land subservient to the will of Obama. Appoint stooges as judges so that all court decisions will follow communist doctrine
  • Dictate what types of food people may eat
  • Force students to obtain their school funding through the government by eliminating the right of private financial institutions to offer student loans
  • Make illegal the selling of incandescent lightbulbs
  • Destroy the private sector of the economy – all jobs must come via government
  • Mandate the killing of unborn babies through taxpayer funded abortions
  • Make Americans slaves to communism

Furthermore, Obama then lies about each and every policy position – Then acts like a buffoon, grins, and denies that he is a socialist. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are living through the most dangerous period of American history. There is a would-be dictator attempting to forcibly impose his will upon us.

This is no longer a fight between conservatism and liberalism. This is a fight between good and evil. Obama even attempts to redefine what is good and what is evil. You’re right, Obama, we don’t share your values. No righteous person ever would. Even the Bible, (you remember the Bible, don’t you, Mister self-professed Christian?) foretold the day of Obama:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5: 20.

It is a small step from Obama’s current rhetoric to genocide. Hitler did it just like Obama is leading up to  it now. Obama is now calling for the destruction of his enemies – and he wants the Latinos to do it. Hitler called for the destruction of the Jews – and he wanted the S.S. to do it. We have arrived at a time in our nation’s history when a violent gang has infiltrated our government, our schools and universities, our think-tanks, our law enforcement agencies, our workplaces, our military, and every other aspect of our society. And Obama is leading the charge.

Pogrom

During the deportation of survivors of a pogrom in Iasi to Calarasi or Podul Iloaei, Romanians halt a train to throw off the bodies of those who had died on the way. Romania, July 1941.

The Jews have a word for what Obama is now alluding to. The word is Pogrom. Look it up. Study it. You will find it instructive. Pogroms, essentially, are the systematic cleansings of populations, with the atrocities aimed at selected groups of people. It is selective genocide. The Jews in Russia suffered pogroms. The Jews in Europe suffered another pogrom at the hands of the Nazis. The Armenians were victims of a pogrom as well. The Holocaust was one giant pogrom. And now Obama is alluding to exactly that – a pogrom.

Obama’s rhetoric has become ever more inflammatory the closer we have come to November 2, 2010. He feels his power slipping away and he is striking out like a petulant child who has been denied the biggest cookie on the plate. What was a slick, controlled, and contrived message during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has descended into gutter talk of retribution against his political “enemies.” Obama isn’t talking about the issues anymore. Obama is talking about eliminating his “enemies.”

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson

Ezra Taft Benson, who served as Secretary of Agriculture in the Eisenhower administration, warned us of the dangers of the secret combination that had infiltrated our society. Benson was mocked and scorned for his words. He was considered a lunatic by many of his critics. But, considering the unfettered dismantling of our freedoms and the destruction of our society by the Democrats during the past two years, more and more people are seeing the Democrats in general and Obama in particular for exactly what they are – a communist gang.

Here is Benson’s warning, published in November, 1979. See the complete talk here. And here are some excerpts, below:

It is well to ask, what system established secret works of darkness to overthrow nations by violent revolution? Who blasphemously proclaimed the atheistic doctrine that God made us not? Satan works through human agents. We need only look to some of the ignoble characters in human history who were contemporary to the restoration of the gospel to discover fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. I refer to the infamous founders of Communism and others who follow in their tradition.

Communism introduced into the world a substitute for true religion. It is a counterfeit of the gospel plan. The false prophets of Communism predict a utopian society. This, they proclaim, will only be brought about as capitalism and free enterprise are overthrown, private property abolished, the family as a social unit eliminated, all classes abolished, all governments overthrown, and a communal ownership of property in a classless, stateless society established.  – Ezra Taft Benson

Having established that Communism in all its forms, and under all the code names it goes by, which we now see include progressive, liberal, Democrat, socialist, and environmentalist, etc., Benson declared that the prophets of communism were among us, promising Utopia in exchange for our freedom. Is this not what we see permeating our society now? Have the communists in America not created a welfare state? Does not Obama seek to expand  it?

Next, Benson goes on to explain the nature of the battle.

Today, we are in a battle for the bodies and souls of man. It is a battle between two opposing systems: freedom and slavery, Christ and anti-Christ. The struggle is more momentous than a decade ago, yet today the conventional wisdom says, “You must learn to live with Communism and to give up your ideas about national sovereignty.” Tell that to the millions—yes, the scores of millions—who have met death or imprisonment under the tyranny of Communism! Such would be the death knell of freedom and all we hold dear. God must ever have a free people to prosper His work and bring about Zion.

I am a witness to nations and people deprived of their freedom. I was there. I watched that great Iron Curtain drop around nations which formerly had prized their freedom—good people. I was aghast as these were written off by the stroke of a pen. I saw Poland abandoned by nations with a heritage of freedom—the United States and Great Britain.

I was in Warsaw in June of 1946. I shared a room with seven other men in the Polonia Hotel, the only hotel even partially intact in the great city of Warsaw. Our ambassador, Bliss Lane, had his office in part of the building. He was so saddened that he resigned and wrote the book I Saw Poland Betrayed, which detailed the failure of the United States and England to keep their promise that the Poles would have a free election after the war.

I saw firsthand our great nation stand by at the time of the Hungarian revolution—when “freedom fighters” with bare hands and stones resisted bullets, tanks, and artillery. I confess I was ashamed at the response of my country—a nation which I believe the Lord intended to be an ensign of freedom to all others. Freedom did not die that day (23 October 1956) for Hungary alone. Hope died for many in other captive nations and has only recently been somewhat revived by courageous men willing to speak against oppression.

Since that day, I have seen the Soviet Union, under its godless leaders, spread its ideology throughout the world. Every stratagem is used—trade, war, revolution, violence, hate, detente, and immorality—to accomplish its purposes. Many nations are now under its oppressive control. Over one billion people—one-fourth of the population of the world—have now lost their freedom and are under Communist domination. We seem to forget that the great objective of Communism is still world domination and control, which means the surrender of our freedom—your freedom—our sovereignty. – Ezra Taft Benson

Benson, a high-ranking leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, included in his article the mention of a warning the First Presidency (the highest ranking level of leadership in his church) issued all the way back in July of 1936 regarding the goals of communism.

“Communism is not a political party nor a political plan under the Constitution; it is a system of government that is the opposite of our Constitutional government. …

“Since Communism, established, would destroy our American Constitutional government, to support Communism is treasonable to our free institutions, and no patriotic American citizen may become either a Communist or supporter of Communism. …

“We call upon all Church members completely to eschew [shun] Communism. The safety of our divinely inspired Constitutional government and the welfare of our Church imperatively demand that Communism shall have no place in America” (signed: Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., David O. McKay, The First Presidency, in Deseret News, 3 July 1936; italics added).

Benson, and his contemporaries recognized that the greatest danger of communism to America was that we, as Americans, had accommodated the infiltration of communists into our society. Americans have keenly noticed that Obama doesn’t seem to have a religion. Yes, he calls himself a Christian – but his rhetoric is decidedly unchristian. The only religion Obama truly seems to have is the worship of Obama. He is following precisely the communist model – he has replaced the worship of God with the worship of the state. And as head of the state, that means he worships himself. Another religious leader, Marion G. Romney, pointed out this fact in September of 1979:

“Communism is Satan’s counterfeit for the gospel plan, and … it is an avowed enemy of the God of the land. Communism is the greatest anti-Christ power in the world today and therefore the greatest menace not only to our peace but to our preservation as a free people. By the extent to which we tolerate it, accommodate ourselves to it, permit ourselves to be encircled by its tentacles and drawn to it, to that extent we forfeit the protection of the God of this land” – Marion G. Romney

Both Benson and Romney argued that the way for Americans to protect themselves from communism was to return to worshipping God with full fervor. Additionally, Benson laid out some other actions that could be taken:

We must not tolerate accommodation with or appeasement toward the false system of Communism. We must demand of our elected officials that we not only resist Communism, but that we will take every measure to prevent its intrusion into this hemisphere. It is vital that we invoke the Monroe Doctrine. – Ezra Taft Benson

Also,

We must study the inspired Constitution and become involved in the political process ourselves. – Ezra Taft Benson

I do not care if the political left declares me, like Ezra Taft Benson, to be a nut. I do not shrink from calling Obama a communist, for that is what he is. I refuse to stand idly by while Obama attempts to destroy my beloved America. America is the great bastion of freedom and liberty in a perilous world. If we give up America we lose the world. Obama knows that. That is why he and his fellow communists are so intent on taking complete and utter control over us. They know that if they conquer America then will control the world.

George Washington praying

George Washington praying

Now let me share something with you that you made find surprising. Our first president, George Washington, saw in vision, this day and age. He saw the threat that would come from our domestic enemies, such as Obama. He understood, through divine revelation, the war we must fight to retain our precious liberty from those, such as Obama, who would deprive us of our liberties.

Our nation was founded by spiritually-minded leaders, including Washington. At Valley Forge, in the winter of 1777, Washington received this vision of the future of The United States of America. This vision was reprinted in December of 1880 by The National Tribune, the U.S. war veterans’ newspaper. This vision was also reprinted on December 21, 1950 by The Stars and Stripes.

The Vision

Anthony Sherman was in Valley Forge and received the report of the vision first hand from George Washington. Sherman recalled: “You doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.”

“One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone. When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual. There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.”

Washington Stated:

“This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

“By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.

“A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

The First Peril – The Revolution

“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world – Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

‘Son of the Republic,’ said the same mysterious voice as before, `look and learn.’ At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

The Second Perl – The Civil War

“A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

“Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, `Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word `Union,’ bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, `Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

The Third Peril – America’s Judgment?

“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.

“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

“Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!

“Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: `While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word `Union,’ he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, `Amen.’

“The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, `Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union’. With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.

Do not doubt for an instant that we are in the midst of a literal war with evil. Obama is currently leading the charge against us. Undoubtedly, there are others in the shadows, who guide him in this war against liberty, but we will likely never know much about them. That isn’t important now. What is important is that we, as a nation, take a stand against the evil arrayed against us. I have hope that America has finally woken up. The emergence of the Tea Party is evidence of that fact. The polls forecasting a conservative victory on November 2, 2010 are evidence to the power of this resurgence of conservatism and God-loving peoples of all faiths.  The midterm elections are just one more battle in the fight against evil. The midterms will represent an important victory in the war against evil – but it will not end that war.

Remain vigilant, America. Go to the polls in immense numbers and reclaim your freedom. Know that our day and our battles were prophesied by President George Washington, by Ezra Taft Benson, by Rush Limbaugh, by Sean Hannity, by Jim DeMint, and by countless others who perceive liberals, progressives, socialists, Democrats, and environmentalists for what they really are – communists.

The war is against communism. It always has been. It always will be. Obama is merely the latest leader of those who would enslave us. Rise up, America and take back that which has been stolen from you. The stakes are high. The dangers are even higher. But we will emerge triumphant, as George Washington saw in vision. America will survive. We will win this war against tyranny.

Get out and vote. Let nothing stop you from this sacred duty. We fight out battles at the ballot box. We fight our battles in the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere. We are not violent. Like Ghandi preached, we fight a bloodless war. The communists will bring bloodshed to this battle but we will not reciprocate. The highest of all victories are won peaceably.

Vote!

And Pray.

Want a Christian roommate? Don’t say so in Michigan

Do we have the right to choose who we live with?

It’s a valid question, now that the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan is attacking an unnamed woman for seeking a Christian roommate. The 31-year-old, who is single, posted the advertisement at her church last July.

“Christian roommate wanted,” she wrote, and included her contact information. Seems harmless enough, right? What churchgoer could possibly find such an ad to be offensive? And what government agency could possibly take such a complaint seriously?

The case is in the hands of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, and the woman could be required to pay hefty fines and take what FHCWM Executive Director Nancy Haynes describes as “fair housing training.”

The FHCWM argues that the woman’s advertisement “expresses an illegal preference for a Christian roommate, thus excluding people of other faiths,” thereby violating Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act. More commonly referred to as the Fair Housing Act, it prohibits illegal housing discrimination, including discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, familial status, national origin, and disability status.

One of the problems with the FHCWM’s argument—and there are many—is that the Fair Housing Act does not negate the rights recognized by the First Amendment, including freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion. It is entirely natural for an unmarried Christian woman to want to live with someone who shares her beliefs about right and wrong, and making that preference known—on a church bulletin board, of all places—does not constitute discrimination.

Would it have been better for the woman to mislead would-be roommates into believing that they would be welcome regardless of religious affiliation? Of course not. She did the right thing by making her preference known, so that non-Christians wouldn’t waste their time. And, again, the advertisement was posted in a church, not a newspaper.

Clearly, the provisions of the Fair Housing Act are not aimed at people who are seeking roommates. Every individual has the right to choose who shares their living space, and no federal or state law can legitimately force them to “integrate,” a term which appears on the FHCWM’s website with unusual frequency.

This story brings with it an opportunity to debate the proper relationship between civil rights and property rights. Would-be tenants and roommates do not have a right to live on a certain property, but the owner of the property does have a natural right to decide that they may or may not, for any reason. Civil rights activists might cry foul at this point, arguing that housing discrimination is unfair, and they would be correct. Discrimination is unfair, and so is life, but government exists only to protect our God-given rights to life, liberty, and property—not to make life fair.

If the Michigan Department of Civil Rights has any sense, it will throw the case out, and issue a stern warning to the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan to stop wasting its time with agenda-based assaults on Christians, and get back to investigating real cases of illegal housing discrimination. Unless, of course, it wants to become involved in a costly, complicated court case.
