Barack Obama, liberal policies fan the flames of racism against White America

moralmatters2
Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States on a promise of hope and change. Hope for a better America, hope for a more prosperous America, and hope for a more united America. Along with his historic election came an even more historic opportunity. The ability to help heal race relations once and for all in this country.

But that opportunity was never taken advantage of. Instead of trying to unite Americans of every color, every creed, and of every socio-economic status, this President has chosen instead to use identity politics and class warfare to systematically and intentionally divide this nation.

Once thing is for certain, Barack Obama is not stupid. He may not be able to give a speech without a teleprompter but thats because he doesn’t have to. He is well on his way to accomplishing exactly what he said he would do; fundamentally transform America.

His complete disdain for America, the Constitution, and anything having to do with Christian-Judeo Values is quite remarkable. The Constitution to a power hungry leftist like our President is nothing more than a speed bump in the road. Who better to drive around those speed bumps than a Constitutional scholar?

The Democratic Party was very smart. They knew what most of the people in this country did not know. That America was ready to elect its first minority President. They knew if they could find someone who could appeal to both White and Black America; with the help of the media they could get that person over the finish line.

Enter Senator Barack Hussein Obama.

A half Black, half White Illinois Senator a majority of Americans never even heard of. The left introduced Barack Obama to America as a living savior. They put him on a pedestal as if he was the second coming of Christ himself. He became a mystifying, mesmerizing, public figure. His loyal fans were very cult like and much like the Manson family probably would’ve done just about anything for their new leader.

Barack Obama ran on a platform of divide. He said he would “tax the rich” and make them “pay their fair share”. Then he promised free healthcare, free education, free this, and free that. He was the modern day version of Robin Hood.

But like all fairytales eventually you have to wake up and realize they are not real. What the President didn’t tell Americans is that nothing in life is free; especially if it comes from the government. When you allow your government to provide for you there are always strings attached to their percieved generosity. Usually it is in the form of your liberty and freedom.

After his selection, (let’s face it there was no way the left and the media were not going to make him win) America’s race relations showed real promise. His selection gave most Americans new hope. White America was finally able to wash away the stain of slavery, and Black America was finally able to heal, forgive, and feel as though they were now equal.

But that all changed. Instead just the opposite happened. With millions of people out of work, a fledgling economy, and a tanking housing market, the President intentionally made things worse. Instead of lowering taxes, he wanted to raise them. Instead of cutting spending, he increased it. Instead of solving problems he created new ones. But the worst thing he did was start to dismantle healing hearts through discrimination and victimization.

His political positions started to alienate certain groups of Americans. His anti-business pro government policies angered the majority of small business owners in the country. His anti-coal stance was responsible for the loss of hundreds if not thousands of jobs throughout rural America. His contraception mandate angered the 77 million Catholics in the country. His numerous attempts to pass anti Second Amendment legislation angered the more than 80 million gun owners in the country, and his healthcare bill will affect almost every single person in one way or another.

A large ideological divide started to deepen and take hold and is now larger than the Grand Canyon.

The President and his cheerleading squad in the media started to protect him by pulling the race card every single time someone disagreed with his policies. If you were against taxing the rich you were for keeping minorities poor. If you were against increasing spending you were somehow considered un-American. If you were a climate change skeptic you were for dirty air and water. If you were against the government taking over your healthcare decisions you were for denying the poor medical care and for pushing grandma over a cliff.

A majority of Black Americans foolishly started to buy into these arguments. With the help of groups like the NAACP, The New Black Panther Party, and so called civil rights leaders like Reverend Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson; America is getting dangerously close to an all out race war.

The race hustlers and poverty pimps like Jackson and Sharpton have hi-jacked the Civil Rights Movement and cheapened its meaning. In the past 20-30 years they have managed to use the guise of civil rights as a means of victimization and as a result have cultivated a culture of hate. They use charges of false racism as a weapon against White America. Couple that with political correctness and a complicit media and you have the makings of a very dangerous situation.

When our media purposely hides story after story of Black on White crimes and gleefully goes out of its way to report on White on Black crimes you know you have a major problem. That is why it is so important that the new media continues to expose the old media. The old media thankfully is a dying breed. Like dinosaurs that used to roam the earth billions of years ago they will eventually become extinct. With the internet, social media, and talk radio the old media hopefully will become a thing of the past.

White and Black Americans overall have come along way since the days of slavery. They have survived as a people despite Democratic Party policies like Jim Crow Laws and segregation. They have managed to prosper despite being considered 3/5th of a person and denied the right to vote by Southern Democrats.

Most Americans are not inherently racist. Too often one’s ideological difference gets misinterpreted as racism. Black Americans must learn to forgive but never forget. They must learn to not judge this generation for the sins of another. White Americans must continue to open their hearts and minds to their Black brothers and sisters. If we can continue to open hearts and minds we can repair the country and heal the nation.

For the record I vehemently oppose this President and his policies. I am counting down the days until he is finally out of office. I think his policies have set America back at least 25 to 30 years. I don’t think he is qualified to hold the office of dog catcher, let alone the Presidency.

However, like most Americans I have absolutely no issue with the President’s skin color. I believe as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. believed that you should judge a man not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character.

Sharpton says Cruz has been a Senator forever

Ok, so it was a slip of the tongue, on-air on MSNBC. But, that doesn’t make it any less amusing, and who can pass up an opportunity to point out the stupidity of anything Al Sharpton happens to say?

It’s no secret that Ted Cruz is trying to make a preemptive strike against what probably should be considered inevitable complaints about the fact that he wasn’t born on U.S. soil. Not unlike John McCain, Cruz was born outside of the country, but is a U.S. citizen by merit of the fact that his mother is a U.S. citizen. Yes, this is the point where birthers should be shutting up about Obama, and possibly apologizing to everyone for all the rumors they sent flying over his citizenship status. As far as U.S. law is concerned, citizenship follows the mother – if your mother is a U.S. citizen, you could be born on the Moon, and still be a U.S. citizen. So, that whole “where was Obama actually born” thing shouldn’t have been the question – if there were questions to be raised, it should have been over his mother’s citizenship status at the time of his birth.

But this isn’t about picking on birthers. It’s about pointing out yet another in the long line of stupidity that we see practically daily from Sharpton. He started his career in the spotlight with a lie, so it makes sense that he should continue to keep trying to make himself relevant with silliness. One should not forget that he came to the political scene via the over-the-top political talk show “The Morton Downey, Jr. Show” in the 1980’s, pushing the sensational case of Tawanna Brawley. She lied about being raped by white men, but when she finally admitted that, instead of Sharpton going up in smoke, Downey was left holding the bag. Sharpton went on to play the race-baiting game to this day, and Downey’s television career went downhill fast.

As for Cruz, not only did Sharpton try to play the citizenship issue – in spite of it not being an issue in the first place – but he also decided it was good idea to say that the Senator is a “radical by choice.” Well, perhaps this one should be turned around on the old man trying to keep some semblance of relevancy. Would it really be such a bad thing if Cruz adopted that term? What is really wrong with running a campaign on being a conservative radical? There’s no doubt there’s at least one heavy-hitting conservative commentator out there that would say it would be a great idea. Maybe Cruz needs to look at what Alfonzo Rachel has to say about embracing our radical conservative roots. Cruz could run a campaign that suggests the radical notion of smaller government, free markets, lower taxes, real economic recovery, and maybe even a sensible energy policy – especially since we haven’t had an energy policy in years. Yes, Cruz is a radical. Now to see if he’ll actually embrace that concept, instead of letting the left use it as a weapon against him.

For your amusement, take a look at Sharpton pointing out that Cruz has been a Senator since birth – according to “experts” no less!

Did Race Baiters Like Al Sharpton Nearly Get George Zimmerman Convicted

Al Sharpton uses race baiting to continue attacks on George Zimmerman

Al Sharpton uses race baiting to continue attacks on George Zimmerman

There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” (1911) - Booker T. Washington.

There is a class of people in this nation that are the problem profiteering pimps of race baiting who gain nothing from eliminating the source of barriers that block progress for black people. That is why they have nurtured the frenzy of hate against George Zimmerman.

They worked for well over a century, even before 1911 to manufacture a hysteria that could bolster their own economic standing in terms of their bank account, with no account for validity, accuracy or the truth. Their practices have been hewn from the tree of hate, because it is in hate that they rise and it is in falseness that they thrive. Black progress is their adversary and nemesis.

Zimmerman’s innocence is of no matter to race baiters because it is easier to manufacture a lie which they can easily push than a truth which forces the black public to look inside and ask questions about their own true issues. So deflection, cries of denunciation and of racial injustice against Trayvon Martin was the banner they designed and carried against George Zimmerman last year. Even though the prosecutors found no proof and the FBI investigation found no proof indicating profiling… race baiters like Al Sharpton insisted George Zimmerman was guilty and sold this narrative to the public. It nearly got him convicted!

Yet there was a truth which was not shared. Yet is as punishing as it is illuminating. Out of the mouth of the only true witness to the words and the deeds of Trayvon Martin’s last minutes alive, came an alarming insight. Rachel Jeantel seemed to imply on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live.” Show early this week, that it was Trayvon Martin who approached the car of George Zimmerman.
According to her, it was Trayvon Martin who profiled George Zimmerman and caused a dangerous down spiraling to ensue because she suggested to Martin that Zimmerman might be a gay man who could be a rapist.

So if the words of the only person who actually was talking to Trayvon Martin is suggesting that Martin did not run away when he could have, but instead approached the car of Zimmerman, where was the “hunting down” of Martin?

When it comes to civil rights, whose civil rights were being violated? This is a question that legitimate fact finding can arrive at a conclusion on. Consider that the FBI had already done an intensive investigation to determine if Zimmerman’s past conduct demonstrated he had a propensity to racially profile blacks or that he was a rabid racist.

The FBI investigators arrived at the conclusion that there was no evidence as in nada, that Zimmerman was a proven racist who would or could lie in wait for the opportunity to racially profile and murder a black youth for no reason.

Again, not the narrative that race hustlers want to hear or to accept. Their future income depends upon stirring the pot so that their bank account grows fatter or the television or media ratings increase, as in the case of Al Sharpton’s’ little watched MSNBC show.

The jury’s decision to find George Zimmerman innocent on murder and manslaughter charges all but threatened to stop the manufactured racism money gravy train for the celebrated liberal media who were startled that justice did work. Unfortunately it was not the result that they wanted, so again the cries of racism have filled the skies and the air waves.

Unfortunately, in all of the continued hysteria a young man is dead and another man has to live with the knowledge of his actions. Those are the facts of this tragic occurrence. In all death there is life and one would hope and pray that there are lessons that America as a whole can learn from this, and it is not a simple discussion of race.

It should be a discussion that parents have with their own children about looking past the fears that are planted by race baiting on either side. Let it be a lesson of what the bible says about hate, injustice and persecution through hysteria:

“Exodus 23:1-3 “You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. You shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice, nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his lawsuit.”

The only person alive, with the exception of Zimmerman who heard and spoke with Trayvon Martin was Rachel Jeantel his friend on the phone. She spoke, the jury listened and the jury decided to acquit Zimmerman.

Whether Jeantel’s remarks on CNN were true or simply spoken in frustration, Zimmerman does deserve to not be prosecuted again and again in the mainstream press, the DOJ or by race baiters. Give it a rest and instead focus on why hundreds of black youths are being murdered in the President’s city of Chicago with zero outrage. Or are their young black lives not significant enough to race baiters because race baiters cannot make a profit?

( Let me know what you think )

Évocateur – The movie about the show that started it all

If you are a conservative that has paid any attention at all to the likes of Andrew Breitbart, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, or Rush Limbaugh, you may have thought that these men were trailblazers – something new under the sun, when it comes to conservative commentary. You would be partially right in that assessment, in that they each have set their own place in the conservative political world. However, before any of them, there was Morton Downey, Jr.

“The Morton Downey, Jr. Show” was an entertainment anomaly in its day, airing in the late eighties for just under a year nationwide. Mort had a cult-like following on college campuses, and can be credited with being the father of shock television. In the beginning, the show focused on political topics, and can be credited with introducing a national audience to the likes of Gloria Allred and the Reverend Al Sharpton. Conservatives today might be tempted to curse him for that, but it can be argued that the interaction between Mort and his guests in general lead to the current tenor of commentary we see everyday from Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity. Today, they are more polite, so if there’s any complaining to do, it probably shouldn’t be about Mort.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the man, and his meteoric rise to fame at the close of the Reagan years, you have the opportunity to learn. Évocateur – The Morton Downey, Jr. Movie is a documentary set for nationwide release on June 7 that explores the history of the show, and the man that made it possible. From the beginning, there was no question about whether or not Mort would attempt to get in the national spotlight – the only question was how he would do it. After failed attempts at following in his father’s footsteps in the music industry, Mort moved to radio. Once he discovered he could use his flamboyant personality to move people on political causes, after speaking on Pro-Life issues, it was only a matter of time before he would parlay that into some form of entertainment.

Based in part on the 1960’s talk show, “The Joe Pyne Show”, “The Morton Downey, Jr. Show” in the New York region on WWOR in Seacaucus, NJ in 1987. Under a year later, the show went into national syndication. The show focused on politics from the beginning until shortly after the Reverend Al Sharpton’s pet cause – the case of Tawana Brawley – was found to be false by a grand jury investigation. The Brawley case was an integral part of Mort’s fame, and when it became clear that the girl had lied about being gang raped by white men, the show could no longer book legitimate guests. It became a freak show, with strippers, prostitutes, and Neo-Nazis as regular guests. Part of Brawley’s claims included racist epithets being written on her body by her attackers – something she apparently did to herself. So, when Mort claimed that he had been attacked by Neo-Nazis, and had swastikas drawn on him in an airport restroom, there was more than a little distrust in his claims. “The Morton Downey, Jr.” show was cancelled shortly after that.

“Évocateur” explores all of this, and is a walk down memory lane for anyone that remembers the man, and his show. As for current conservatives, it is important to understand the rise and fall of Mort. While even his close friend, Lloyd Schoonmaker, admits in the film that Mort’s political beliefs were whatever served him best at any given moment, one thing the man did understand was how to turn populism into real entertainment. If the show was aired today, it probably still would appeal to a large audience, because of its off-the-wall flavor, if nothing else. However, Mort would be branded as RINO, because of he would often switch stands on various issues. As shown in a very short clip in the film, it apparently was done to “see how the audience reacts” – he was a showman first, pundit second if at all. His goal was to entertain, then inform. Today, entertaining audiences has either been abandoned entirely, or takes second seat to informing the masses. Conservatives today have been debating for years about how to reach a larger audience, and if Mort can teach us anything, it is that we’re going about it backwards. First entertain the people, and then inform them.

If there is one must-see film out there now for conservatives, it is “Évocateur”. This should be the start point for anyone seeking to spread the conservative message to a larger audience, because it is about a man who did it right, before he got everything absolutely wrong. His failure was highly personal, in that he was obsessed with eclipsing his father’s fame. However, on the tactical end, his other failure was in putting so much faith in one story – the Tawana Brawley story. It is a bitter irony that story didn’t spell the end of Sharpton as well. But, none of it lessens the value of what can be learned from Morton Downey, Jr. – the man that defined the populist conservative movement in the waning days of the Reagan era.

Debunking 5 Paul Ryan Myths

When Mitt Romney chose Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate nine days ago, he forced Democrats to engage in serious intellectual debate in the coming weeks and months, rather than demagoguing which has been the main practice of the Obama/Biden campaign as of yet.

Paul Ryan holds his Plan, The Path to American Prosperity

Well, that’s what one would have thought, because, well, conventional wisdom says so. However, in the latter, Democrats and the left have tried to demonize Paul Ryan in every way absolutely imaginable. The day after the announcement of Paul Ryan to be the running-mate of Mitt Romney, the attacks started. From Ryan’s budget, to a ‘war on women’, to Ryan ‘pushing grandma off of the cliff’, let’s debunk five myths about Paul Ryan.

1. The Ryan Plan Destroys Medicare.

The Liberal New York Congressman, Rep. Steve Israel has recently claimed that the Romney/Ryan ticket is a “nightmare for seniors who’ve earned their Medicare benefits. For the last 18 months, we’ve said Republicans will have to defend the indefensible—their vote to end Medicare.” The Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been running around spewing lies claiming that the Ryan Plan would end Medicare as we know it. This wouldn’t be the first time that Schultz has lied, or probably the last. Look at what she said regarding presidential tax returns and Mitt Romney.

The Wyden-Ryan Medicare Plan – yes that is Democratic Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon – says that the plan will not affect anyone over 55. Anyone over 55 wouldn’t see a change in their plans or their benefits. Anyone under 55 wouldn’t either, unless they voluntarily chose to take part in the Plan. Washington would still be paying the premiums for the healthcare choices you made, and if you believed in the basic principles of free-market capitalism, this would improve the services while driving down the cost.

Furthermore, the liberal leaning Urban Institute recently found that the average citizen will pay $149,000 in Medicare taxes, while only taking out $351,000 in medical services during retirement. In reality, the party that doesn’t want to reform Medicare, and who doesn’t want to ‘change Medicare as we know it’, is single-handedly destroying the system from the inside out.

2. Paul Ryan is a Constitutional Obstructionist

According to a recent Gallup Poll, the 112th Congress’ approval rating has hit an all-time low. Of course, Obama, his administration, and his campaign blame the GOP for the gridlock in Congress, which may we not forget; Paul Ryan is a part of. It’s not necessarily fair, considering the House has passed massive amount of bills that focus on economic recovery that have been killed by Harry Reid in the Senate. May we also not forget that, a) Obama’s ‘serious’ budget was rejected by everyone in both the House and the Senate, and b) Ryan’s Budget passed the House by a vote of  228-191.

Contrary to what the President said yesterday during his surprise visit to the press room of the White House, he is stepping across the preverbal line ‘in the sand’. “So, if you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities. It’s time to put politics aside and pass it right away,” the President said last week in Iowa. But in fact, the House has already passed a measure that helps farmers that have been struck financially by the drought.

3. The Ryan Budget is Extreme

President Obama’s Campaign Manager, Jim Messina, someone who probably actually hasn’t sat down and read the Ryan Plan, is calling the plan ‘radical’.

New York Times Columnist, Paul Krugman, is spewing the common lies about the Ryan Plan. He said the plan, “would kill people, no question,” while the Plan would “cut discretionary spending to levels not seen since Calvin Coolidge.” In defense of Coolidge, life wasn’t that bad under his leadership – low taxation, high economic growth and relative peace. But, to anyone’s surprise, this isn’t true. The Ryan Plan only brings back non-military discretionary spending to the 2008 levels. The plan also cuts the federal bureaucracy and it’s subsidies by 10% and it reforms the compensation plans of federal employees.

But when we talk about discretionary spending as a percentage of the entire budget, you don’t have to be an economic genius to know that Krugman does have a point, but a very misleading one at that. Because mandatory spending has grown at about six times that of discretionary spending over the past 20 years, it’s really easy to argue that President Obama will keep discretionary spending at levels not seen since Calvin Coolidge – anyone could.

However, there are a lot of Conservatives that aren’t exactly in love with the Ryan Budget. For one, it balances the budget over ten years versus the Connie-Mac Penny Plan which balances the budget over eight years. Don’t we know that anything a president implements that expands past his time in office, usually never completely comes to fruition? Meaning, I seriously doubt that the Ryan Budget would make it all ten years.

Moreover, the Ryan Plan only reduces spending from current levels of 24% down to 19.8% of the GDP. Several leading economists have pointed out that this would only bring down federal expenditures to post-WWII levels. Furthermore, in the Ryan Budget federal spending increases over the next ten years, and revenue each year after. The budget would expand from $3.6 trillion in 2013 to $4.9 trillion in 2022.

4. Ryan is at ‘War with Women’

Didn’t we all see this one coming? It’s a classic ‘hail mary’ out of the playbook of the left against anyone on the right. Democratic Pennsylvania Congressman Patrick Murphy said that Ryan “believes we should ban all birth control as well. He voted for that.” The President of NARAL Pro-Choice America, Nancy Keenan, said that Ryan “supported the ‘Let Women Die Bill,’ which would allow hospitals to refuse to provide a woman emergency, lifesaving abortion care, even if she could die without it.”

Gosh, Ryan really does hate woman, right? Wrong. Ryan has never voted or said any of these things that he is being accused of. However, he did vote for the “Protect Life Act,” which would have, if it passed, rewritten provisions in Obamacare that allowed for federal subsidies to be provided for abortions. Ironic, because liberals and the left already claim that the government doesn’t fund abortions. “Protect Life Act,” also had a provision that exempted Catholic hospitals from having to pay for contraception or abortions. He also supported a bill that would have dulled the HHS Mandate that Catholic hospitals provide free condoms.

5. Ryan’s Plan Favors the Rich

Another classic play from the playbook of those on the left – class warfare. A day on the campaign trail just wouldn’t be right with a little class warfare. Many on the left have claimed that Romney “chose a leader of the House Republicans who shares his commitment” of a “new budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy…”

Regardless of what you will hear from Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton or an Obama SuperPAC add, there are absolutely zero special tax cuts in the Ryan Budget ‘for the wealthy’. Common sense tells you that when Washington enacts across-the-board tax reform, the rich (who already pay the vast majority of the taxes) are likely to benefit. Ryan’s Plan however, only supports keeping the current tax rates that we’ve had for the last decade – one’s that a lot on the left have also supported.

What the Ryan plan does do is simplify our tax system. We currently have a six-bracket tax system. Under the Ryan Plan, this would be simplified to two tax brackets – the lower bracket being a 10% bracket, and the upper bracket being a 25% bracket. This plan fixes the Alternative Minimum Tax, and cuts corporate tax rates to reflect those of other competitive nations to the U.S. Ryan and Romney both also support closing loopholes that wealthy Americans disproportionally use.

Zimmerman Heads to ‘Stand Your Ground’ Trail, Could Face Acquittal

gty_george_zimmerman_jef_120412_wg

George Zimmerman still stands accused of the shooting death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin in Sanford Florida. On Thursday Zimmerman’s lawyer announced via his website that there will be a ‘stand your ground’ hearing, based on the claim that Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in self defense. Via Fox News and the Associated Press:

A finding in Zimmerman’s favor would end the criminal case against him, as well as immunizing him from civil action.

“Now that the State has released the majority of their discovery, the defense asserts that there is clear support for a strong claim of self-defense. Consistent with this claim of self-defense, there will be a ‘Stand Your Ground’ hearing,” said O’Mara in a statement.

The law allows people to use deadly force, rather than retreat, if they believe their lives are in danger.

O’Mara described the hearing as a “mini-trial,” with arguments, witnesses, experts and evidence that would be included in a criminal trial, but without a jury. 

Tensions continue to run high in the city of Sanford and across the nation as many believe the shooting was racially motivated.

Al Sharpton’s National Action Network has been a staunch supporter of the Martin family throughout the ordeal. At the time of this post they could not be reached for comment.

America’s Race Hustling Poverty Pimps: Al, Jesse, & Barack

As I read stories and opinions about the death of Trayvon Martin I find myself wondering how so much can go so wrong in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. I can find enough fault on both sides of this tragedy to show the racial hatred being spewed by the usual race baiting hate mongers in the black community to be not only unnecessary but down right evil.

In the first place, George Zimmerman was told by the police that he didn’t need to follow Martin, just give them a description and be available for officers when they got there. I understand Zimmerman’s concern. When help is needed in seconds the police are often minutes, sometimes many minutes, away. Zimmerman stated he was afraid this unknown person would just disappear and the police would find nothing, take a report, and go back to what they had been doing. This happens all too often, especially in cities where police are often overwhelmed with work to do. I am not bashing police here, just making what I believe to be a fair observation. If Zimmerman had done as asked Trayvon Martin would be alive today.

On the other side of this coin are Trayvon Martin’s bad decisions. I imagined myself in this situation and asked myself, “What would I do?” if faced with being followed by an unknown person with unknown intentions. My first thought was not “to hide around the corner of a building and attack the follower when he rounded the corner”. My first thought was to get to where I was going as fast as possible. If I was not able to accomplish that before being overtaken the next choice is to find a suitable place to hide and dial 911 for help. Under no circumstances would I go on the offensive when an unknown person, who could be armed, was following me and I had no idea why. Martin’s actions were ill-advised at best, and stupid at the worst. Martin had a cell phone. Why wasn’t he calling 911 to report he was being followed by a possible assailant instead of talking to his girlfriend?

The combination of bad decisions by both of these men resulted in an unnecessary death. I understand the hurt of the parents; I know the pain of losing a son too early in life. This was a totally senseless situation brought on by bad decisions on both sides of the coin. Enough said about this, now on to the larger tragedy here.

As soon as reports of this tragedy came out, Al Sharpton, smelling a profit, crawled out from under his rock to do his usual stirring up of racial hatred before knowing any facts in the incident. George Zimmerman sounds like as white a name as I have ever heard but is he? Well, partly. It seems, now that we have more information, that he is a multi-racial Hispanic. But this information doesn’t really matter to me, as it doesn’t matter to the race baiters. The “it doesn’t matter”, however, comes for different reasons.

Race isn’t an issue to those of us who see other Americans as Americans instead of seeing race as does Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee, the Black Panthers, and other race baiting hate mongers. We now have the Black Panthers offering a $1 million reward for Zimmerman’s head. Isn’t solicitation to commit murder a crime in America? Spike Lee has tweeted Zimmerman’s address. If Zimmerman is assaulted will Eric Holder’s “Justice Department” charge the Black Panthers and Lee as an accomplice or accessory to an assault or murder? Not likely!!!

I wonder where all of these “concerned citizens” were last week when a 90 year old white man and his 85 year old white wife were attacked in their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma by a young black man and unknown accomplices. The woman (again, 85 years old) was raped and beaten to death. The man is clinging to life in ICU at last reports. Where are the $1 million dollar offers from the Black Panthers? Where is Al Sharpton and his megaphone? Where is Jesse Jackson to offer financial help to the family of this couple as he did in the Duke Lacrosse case? Where is Spike Lee to tweet this animal’s home address for the angry mobs to go kill him? Where is Barack Obama and his condemnation of black violence against whites? Remember Eric Holder saying black on white violence would not be investigated by the same “Justice Department” who is jumping through hoops to convict Zimmerman before the sun rises tomorrow?

Last week I read a story from Chicago about a 6 year old boy killed as a result of gang violence, and a 1 year old clinging to life by a thread from the same shooting. This was black gang members trying to kill a rival, but killing babies instead. Where are the Black Panthers? Where is Al Sharpton? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is the $1 million reward for the heads of those who hurt these innocent children in an indiscriminate shooting? Where is Spike Lee and his Twitter account when needed?

Several years ago we had the Tawana Brawley incident. She reported that white men raped her, smeared feces on her, and repeatedly called her “nigger”. After Al Sharpie crawled out from under his rock to drum up money for himself he found out it was all a lie. Did he apologize? Did he give the money back? No, he just stirred up unnecessary racial hatred, raked in his millions, and crawled back under his rock until the next opportunity arose.

Remember the Duke Lacrosse case a few years ago? A black prostitute claimed she was raped, beaten, and called “nigger” by white members of the Duke Lacrosse team. Along came Jesse and Al to the rescue. As it turned out, after the flames of racial hatred had been fanned to a roar, the entire story was found to be a huge lie. Even the District Attorney in the case did everything he could to profit politically, from a case he knew was a lie. Once again, Jesse and Al raked in their millions and crawled back under their rocks to await the next incident they could use to fan racial hatred and make a few million dollars for themselves.

And once again Barack Obama, the Usurper in Chief, has jumped into the fray to stir up racial hatred and try to gain some votes without knowing the facts. Remember the famous “beer summit” that resulted when the cop wanted to know why the college professor, who was reported by neighbors to be breaking into a house, was there? It turned out the house belonged to the professor and he had lost his key or left it somewhere. All the policeman did was his job, but he was turned into a monster by the same race baiting hate mongers we have seen so many times before. What if that had been a mugger breaking into the house of an elderly woman with no protection other than that policeman? Oh well, the white guy has to be wrong regardless of the facts. And the racism is where?

Obama was to be the first “post-racial” president, but alas, that hasn’t happened. Racial polarization is worse than it has been since the 1960’s. White people voted in droves for a black man, or half black, to prove they weren’t racists. Instead of pointing out the fact that white voters seem to be over racism he makes racial strife the keynote part of his agenda. Instead of taking the moral high ground and urging people to look at this as a tragedy that resulted from a set of preventable circumstances on both sides, he jumps in with both feet to help Al Sharpie & Company fan the flames of racial hatred. Obama has shown himself to be as racist and as much of a hate monger as the “Justice Brothers”.

All of these men call me a racist and a hate monger because I am white and believe in finding the facts first. You were able to see my view on this at the beginning of this article. What is the difference between my approach and that of the blacks who are raising so much hell about this Florida shooting? Am I or other white people out in the media calling for riots over the attack, rape, and murder of that elderly white woman by a young black man in Oklahoma? No, of course not. That would be an asinine and wrong stand to take. If I offered $1 million for his head would that be racist?

Racism is alive and well in America but it isn’t the whites who are stoking the fires of racism, or even committing racist acts. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Spike Lee, Louis Farrakhan and other liberals can’t open their mouths without fanning the fires of racism, and doing it to make a profit for themselves. They don’t care about the black community. These people only care about the money they make off of racial hatred.

The fact that Barack Obama does the same thing on a regular basis (African-Americans for Obama campaign ads, for instance) is not only an act of racism against We the People, it is detrimental to our nation. It is even more detrimental to members of the black community. Blacks are being used by profiteers. This kind of rhetoric is not conducive to a harmonious future in America. The divide and conquer tactics of these people are intended to enslave all ethnic groups, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, etc. equally.

The only way to overcome the tactics of division are for We the People to unite in rejecting those who divide us. God made all of us and all of us need to come together against the strife spread by the agents of Satan. We can come together, One Nation Under God, or we will live as one nation under tyrants. The choice is ours. As for me and my house, we choose One Nation Under God. My heart goes out to both families in this tragedy. Let’s not waste our time ripping each other apart for no good reason. Let’s unite, under GOD, against those who use tragedies like this one for profit and to divide a nation unnecessarily.

I submit this in the name of the Most holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Ai Politics, Kira Davis And Alex Kauffman Discuss The Trayvon Martin Case

In this virtual round table discussion, ConservativeDailyNews.com’s Kira Davis and Alex Kauffman call into Ai Politics’s weekend show (Married To The Game) and talk about the Trayvon Martin case.

All three commenters agree that the tragic story of Trayvon Martin’s death is high on emotion and short on facts.  There are many things that America’s news media seemed to get wrong when it came to informing our public.  As of the time this conversation was recorded, there had been rallies and riots and even rewards for the capture of George Zimmerman, but there were still very few facts, and many questions had gone unanswered.

Kira, Ai, and Alex talk about the media’s shortcomings, the senselessness of the the tragedy, and the opportunism of people who have been involved in controlling the conversation.  Listen to this compelling trialogue as three of CDN’s contributors discuss one of the most polarizing and tragic issues facing us right now.

A Letter To All Members of Clergy in America

To all who read this, please share with your pastor, priest, or minister. They need to see this and understand their rights to speak as well as our rights to hear.

To all members of Clergy in America,
The moral, ethical, and societal situation in our nation today is dire to say the least. An out of control government that does not respond to the wishes of We the People is taking control of every aspect of our lives and implementing a dictatorial oligarchy. Freedom of speech/expression is all but gone unless that speech/expression espouses everything Godless, evil, and despicable.

What I am writing may or may not apply to you. If you are not one of the ones I write about don’t take offense but rather accept my thanks for standing for freedom and Christian values against an increasingly tyrannical government. If this does apply to you please take it to heart and think about what your position in society is, and how you are carrying out your calling from God. In writing this I am doing my best to fulfill my calling, my commission from God.

I find it disconcerting that members of the clergy are either on board with this governmental abuse of power or afraid to speak out against it. I don’t know where each of you stand on issues of government tyranny and the restrictions on preaching true biblical tenets but I do know too many either agree with what the government is doing or have been intimidated into silence on the most important issues facing America today.

I see history repeating itself in horrendous terms. I was born shortly after World War II and clearly remember the situation that led to the Holocaust. When Hitler took over in Germany there were somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 churches in that nation. When he started his pogrom against the Jews there were only 84 pastors who stood up to oppose what he was doing. Most of those 84 were executed outright and others died in concentration camps.

Those who stood for the Bible and the values of God were martyred for their beliefs. Sadly, almost all of those who should have led the charge against Hitler’s tyranny sat on the sidelines to save their own skins and denied their calling for their own safety. This is not God’s idea of a shepherd, at least not to my understanding.

I see this happening again, in America today. I wonder why the leaders of the Christian community are silent. Pastors John Hagee of San Antonio and Robert Jeffress of Dallas are a couple of the more outspoken critics of what is happening but I know of very few others who are standing for true Christianity. It seems very few other clergy members have the courage to defy the perversion of the 1st Amendment and are willing to exercise the most important freedom guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. I realize I only attend one church but I see and have contact with thousands of people through the internet and my impression is that I am right on the button with my comments.

I know that there are several reasons why pastors won’t speak out. I have heard it said that if they speak out against government overreach and truly preach on the more controversial biblical principles, such as that against homosexuality or pre-marital sexual activity, that people will leave because they don’t want to hear that message. The churches could collapse from lack of donations so they have to be careful what they say from the pulpit in order to keep the attendance and money flow coming. If this is the reason a pastor won’t speak out my sadness deepens. Some fear the possibility of “hate speech” charges being brought if they speak out against immorality. I have also heard it said that they can’t preach certain things because of the “separation of church and state”. If this last point is your concern, let me educate you a bit.

This quaint little phrase is not in the Constitution. The 1st Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;…..”. It says freedom of RELIGION, not freedom of WORSHIP as has been the latest propaganda coming from the White house and Obama’s minions. The term separation of church and state came from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury, Connecticut Baptist Association in 1802. The state government of Connecticut was trying to establish a denominational control over their state, trying to establish a Church of England style worship, and make it mandatory. The Danbury Baptist group asked Jefferson for help and he told them, in a two page letter, that no government entity can establish such a rule due to the separation of church and state. In 1947 Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black turned 8 words from that two page letter into a decision that totally perverted the meaning of the 1st Amendment. Freedom OF religion suddenly became freedom FROM religion, well freedom from public Christianity anyway.

The government and the courts have turned this perversion into a “no public expression of Christianity” edict. This position doesn’t carry over to Islam, atheism, or any of the many cults in existence today. Atheism has been acknowledged as a religion by the courts but only Christianity is held to the standards of no public displays of faith. When Christians see the clergy accepting this government position and doing nothing they assume the government and the courts are correct because they don’t know what the Constitution says. That Americans have no clue what their founding document says is sad enough in itself. The fact that their church leaders have no better understanding is even worse.

I am saddened when the activism I see from clergy is that of calling for government control of everything. “Ministers” and priests are out in the public eye decrying our freedom and demanding that the government give what doesn’t belong to them to those who refuse to help themselves. Jesus himself said that the man who does not work should not eat. These same clergy members preach hate from the pulpit but are excused because their message is politically correct, and against Christianity. Jeremiah Wright, Michael Pfleger, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton all stand out in public preaching hate, racism, divisiveness, and dependence on government. They need to be countered by true men and women of God who will preach the true message of the Bible, not the message of some pseudo-god they worship.

Our nation is going down the sewer of Godlessness and our clergy are allowing it to happen. Most of the members of your congregation are not going to be as outspoken and forward as I am. Most of them probably know very little, if anything, about their freedom or their heritage. They look to you not only for spiritual guidance but also for the courage to get out in the community and be seen, to stand up for their rights and the freedom given to all of us by Almighty God. It is up to you to teach them about the Christian heritage of our nation, and to be proud of that heritage instead of hiding it in the closet.

Freedom doesn’t come from government or from a document. The Declaration of Independence says; “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.” Our founding fathers recognized God as our creator, our benefactor, and our ultimate judge. If we continue to turn our backs on God, our founding documents, and our responsibilities as American citizens we will soon find ourselves living under a brutal dictatorship that will not allow any public Christian worship at all.

It is your responsibility as leaders appointed by God Himself to stand up for the Christian heritage of the nation He designed with His own hand. We the People, Christian and non-Christian, need for you to take on the tough part of your commission from God and lead us back to the promised land, a proudly Christian America.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Bigot or Not? I Say Not: The Hypocrisy of “Tolerance”

I received an e-mail a few days ago with a story about a lady who owns a bakery in Des Moines, Iowa. She declined to bake a wedding cake for two lesbians, which has resulted in calls for a boycott, and the usual name calling, from homosexual groups. Victoria Childress, owner of Victoria’s Cake Cottage told the couple that she is a Christian and would not violate her Christian beliefs to provide them with a cake. When interviewed about the incident, Ms. Childress said:

“I was straight-forward with them and explained that I’m a Christian and that I have very strong convictions.  I chose to be honest about it. They said they appreciated it and left. That was all that was said.”

Childress said her decision had nothing to do with discrimination or the lesbian couple, and stressed this fact by saying:

“It doesn’t have anything to do with them – it was about my convictions. They can get their cake anywhere.”

Childress said money is not the issue, adding:

“I’m being attacked because of my beliefs – my convictions to their lifestyle. I was not rude. I was not condescending. It was matter-of-fact. I told them, ‘I’m sorry, I just can’t do that.’”

The lesbian pair released a statement calling the Christian cake baker a “bigot” and are contemplating filing a discrimination lawsuit against Ms. Childress. More on the discrimination issue later in this piece. The couple ran to the media and started calling a citizen, who I thought had freedom of choice also, a bigot. They threaten legal action, and make a big scene because someone doesn’t want to bake them a wedding cake. How thin skinned can anyone get? They are offended? I am offended that they think they have a right to demand service from any business owner. I am offended that they think a Christian doesn’t have a right to decide who to do business with. If someone doesn’t want my business I just take it elsewhere.

Unfortunately, this reaction is typical of special interest groups, any special interest group. It seems everyone has a “right” to their views, and to be pandered to, except Christians. I wonder what would happen if these same women walked into a bakery owned by a Muslim. Would the owner bake them a cake or chase them out of the shop with a barrage of rocks, or simply hang them for their blasphemy? Stoning, in case you aren’t aware, is one of the penalties for homosexuality in the Muslim world. Hanging also seems to be a popular punishment.

Would these women go screeching to the media about Muslim bias against their “lifestyle”? If they did complain, would anyone make a big fuss or would they just keep out of it for fear of “offending” a Muslim business owner? I hope their next stop is at a bakery owned by a Muslim. I would really like to see the result of that visit. That situation would put the media and all of the “minority” groups in a tizzy. Who would they side with?

Where does this nonsense stop? Why is it that everyone has to bow down to the homosexual lifestyle, or Islam, or the NAACP, or any other “minority” group? Does freedom only apply to those with “issues”? I always thought freedom applies to all of us. Does “diversity” of thought include the thoughts of Christians? Does “diversity” of expression include Christians? Does “freedom of speech” include Christians? Apparently not!!!!!

I am also a Christian who believes homosexuality or heterosexual relations outside of marriage to be wrong. Does being against heterosexual couples living together and engaging in sexual activity outside of marriage make me a bigot also? What does one call that bigotry, heterophobia? Do Christians not have a right to live according to their firmly held religious beliefs? We are certainly expected, by Muslims and many judges and politicians, to allow Muslims to practice their religious beliefs and customs, even the parts that call for stoning of adulterers or honor killings.

Like most other Christians, including Victoria Childress, I don’t condemn others for their lifestyles, I simply disagree with them. Ms. Childress didn’t say anything tawdry about the couple, according to the article. Ms. Childress just expressed her views politely and let it go at that. Also mentioned in the article was a comment from another bakery owner who would be more than happy to bake the cake. Why is this a problem? It isn’t like these two can’t get a cake anywhere, others are happy to have their business.

Read the next couple of paragraphs very carefully and think about the point they make. Find the irrationality of those calling for a boycott of Victoria’s Cake Cottage. As far as a boycott, what will that accomplish? Ms. Childress seems to be boycotting homosexuals, yet that is unlawful according to homosexual activists. Homosexuals are going to boycott a business that doesn’t want their business. Does anyone besides me see the irony in this? I really can’t help but chuckle at this point.

If it is permissible for homosexuals to boycott Victoria’s Cake Cottage why isn’t it permissible for her to boycott homosexuals? Isn’t a boycott a boycott? Shouldn’t this cut both ways? Aren’t these homosexual groups practicing discrimination against Victoria’s Cake Cottage? They claim she is discriminating against them so they turn around and call for a boycott. If they don’t boycott every bakery equally isn’t that the definition of discrimination?

One of the biggest problems faced by this nation today is this very attitude of “tolerance”. We are told we must accept illegal aliens, who have a “right” to be here. We are told we must accept Islam and Sharia Law, because Muslims have “rights”. Christians are told we must accept a lifestyle that goes against our beliefs because these people have “rights”. I find it problematic that the “tolerance boat”, built by Christians who came here looking for freedom of religion, no longer has room for the Christians who built it. What about the rights of Christians to live our lives according to our beliefs? What about our “rights”?

If we are to be a truly tolerant society the tolerance has to go both ways, and it currently does not. If true tolerance were to be enforced, illegal aliens would be required to understand and “tolerate” my views about immigration. In a truly tolerant society homosexuals would be required to “tolerate” the fact that Ms. Childress and I disagree with their lifestyle and would rather they take their business elsewhere. A truly “tolerant” society would say the Congressional Black Caucus is required to admit white members of Congress. Muslims, in a truly “tolerant” society, would be required to accept that America has a Constitution and that Sharia law is unacceptable as it violates nearly every tenet of that Constitution. Muslims would have to “tolerate” our Constitution, and its Judeo-Christian basis, in a truly tolerant society.

If tolerance is not a two way street then it isn’t tolerance it is bullying. Whites are bullied by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson on a regular basis. Christians are bullied by CAIR and homosexuals, among other special interest groups. American citizens are bullied by the ACLU, LaRaza and like organizations. Proponents of Right to Work are bullied by unions every day. Tolerance must be equal or it isn’t tolerance. If Victoria Childress and others like her are not allowed to live their lives according to their beliefs then tolerance isn’t anything other than brute force being used against someone these groups disagree with. Isn’t that the definition of bullying? Isn’t that the very thing they are fighting against? Can you spell HYPOCRISY?

I salute Ms. Childress for the way she handled this situation. She was forthright about her stand and refrained from making a big deal out of the situation. She did not “chastise” the couple; she merely chose not to participate in something she finds objectionable. From what I know of this situation she handled herself in a Christian manner with courage and firmness, yet with “tolerance”. She didn’t run to the media, she merely responded with the truth of her beliefs.

I hope that everyone reading this piece will show Ms. Childress their support. If you live in Des Moines or nearby, visit her shop. If not, go to her website and give her words of support. If possible, order something from her bakery and reward her for this stand for freedom of religion. If you live outside of Des Moines order some cookies or something that can be shipped. Let her know you appreciate her courage and her willingness to stand by her values and not be intimidated into surrendering her values or her freedom to live by those values.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

The first thing the lesbian couple did was run to the news media, where they knew they and their whining and crying, “woe is me”, “I’ve been victimized” story would be coddled.

Marxism on Full Display in DC on Saturday

The {fake}Reverend Al Sharpton led  a rally in our nation’s capitol today, which originally was supposed to be a demand for Congress to pass Obama’s Jobs bill. The U.S. Senate put the kibosh on those plans, as it voted down Obama’s jobs bill last week. That did not prevent the latest faux  journolist to be put on national display at MSNBC  from grabbing the microphone and prepping D.C.  for Obama’s dedication speech for the new MLK Jr. memorial tomorrow. And prep them he did. While  Sharpton did throw in some support for Obama’s now dead jobs bill,  that was nowhere near the main theme of this rally. The message that Sharpton wanted to tell the nation was unadulterated  Marxist ideology 101 =  WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION.     From Eric Tucker of the AP via startribune.com: Al  Sharpton enlisted Martin Luther King III for the main theme:

King’s eldest son, Martin Luther King III, was also among the speakers.

Over 45 years ago, my father talked about a redistribution of wealth. In fact, that is probably why he was killed,” King said. “Because he said if America is going to survive responsibly, then it must have a redistribution of wealth.” (emphasis mine)

I,ll let that statement, which was spoken in our nation’s capitol, right in front of the Washington Monument no less,  speak for itself. For the uninformed masses who still deny Barack Obama’s deep-seated Marxist ideology, even after he said almost those exact same words in 2008 to Joe the Plumber in Ohio, here is the definition of Marxism by education.yahoo.com:

The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society’s allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.

Get that? To form a Socialist and ultimately classless society. Play the class warfare victim cards, collapse the free market system and install a utopian Socialistic Society.. where there is one main class of people… what they refuse to tell people is that Socialism results in widespread poverty that in turn breeds a Dictatorship class of rulers that ends up making decisions such as who gets to eat and who doesn’t.  For a more complete understanding about the wealth re-distributive principles inherent in Marxism, please read this article:  The Communist Manifesto – The Capitalist Manifesto – Socialism by Bill Glynn.

Al Sharpton’s rally (from the above link, at  startribune.com) also had other points of interest, such as  condemning state laws requiring voter identification at the polls and protesting the recent execution of Troy Davis, a Georgia man convicted of killing an off-duty police officer. Davis maintained his innocence until his death and attracted thousands of supporters worldwide even though courts repeatedly ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to exonerate him.  Marxism relies on the breaking down of a societal system, including corrupting the electoral system which is why these people decry Voter ID laws today.

In case you are wondering who else was at this Marxist protest rally in our nation’s capitol on Saturday, here are the other notable people including many of our very own government’s tax-payer funded employees:

Kathie Williams, a part-time administrator for the Howard County, Md., parks and recreation department. She’d like to find full-time work but has struggled to do so despite an active search.

Belinda Shade, 56, of Waldorf, Md., works as a special education school administrator but said the economy still makes her insecure.

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray held a separate protest supporting greater autonomy for the district government — Congress must approve the local government’s budget — and joined in the larger gathering. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Randi Weingarten of the American Federation of Teachers were among the other speakers.

Wait a minute, someone from the American Federation of Teachers was there too? Isn’t that just another fancy name for a UNION? Yes it is.

Chanting for jobs and justice, many demonstrators carried banners for their labor unions and wore pins or T-shirts bearing King’s likeness. Obama is scheduled to speak Sunday at the dedication ceremony for the memorial, the first monument dedicated to a black leader on the National Mall. (emphasis mine)

In summary, the [fake] Reverend Al Sharpton made it a point to say this has absolutely nothing to do with Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. In Sharpton’s eloquent [bought and paid for by MSNBC]-speak he ended his speech with,  “This is not about Obama,” he said. “This is about my mama.”  Kinda makes me feel like Sharpton is just as gifted a speaker as the teleprompter-in-chief there.

How many times will America have to witness these anti-American Marxism preachers at events like this one at the National Monument, where big labor Unions, Socialists disguised as Democrats, Communists and MSNBC’s newest propagandist Al Sharpton are all shown to be promoting the overthrow and collapse of America, before they will take a stand against them?

Footnote: What is the now-stated main theme of the Occupy Wall Street protests today? Marxist wealth redistribution in the form of living wages regardless of employment, complete debt forgiveness, free houses for everyone regardless of ability to pay, good jobs regardless of qualifications, etc.etc.etc. Take from the working class and give to the freeloader-class until everyone is mired in poverty.

 From Sharpton’s DC rally, to the Wall Street protests across the nation, with the support of many Socialists sitting in our Congress disguised as Democrats,  America is being systematically dismantled by anti-American Marxist collaborators, including our own President, Barack Obama.   2012  just can’t get here fast enough.

 

 


Tea Party Only Half-Racist

If we are to take the preposterous stance promulgated by leftists like Maxine Waters, Al Sharpton and now, Morgan Freeman, that anyone who opposes President Obama’s policies and ambitions is doing so solely on race, then let’s make sure we are being accurate – The Tea Party can only be half-racist, because Barack Obama is only half-black.

His mother is Caucasian and therefore Obama is technically the first “half-black” President.  The first Fully-black President is yet to be elected.  So, by definition, those who oppose Obama can only be “half-racist”.

Let’s apply this on a larger scale.  Up until the 2008 election, according to the logic (or lack thereof) supplied by the race baiters, everyone who ever voted in a presidential election from 1789 on would have to be classified as racist, for they did not vote for the black candidate.  Of course, most would raise the fact that up until 2008, no minority (or half-minority) candidate had ever been selected as a nominee of a major political party, but why let pesky things like facts get in our way now?  Every Democrat who voted in the 1988 presidential primaries, and did not vote for Jesse Jackson must have been a racist.  For that matter, those who voted for Michael Dukakis in the general election should also be considered residual racists.  All Kerry supporters in 2004 are also guilty of racism – they didn’t vote for Al Sharpton.

It could even be said that supporters of Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008 are at least half-racist themselves.  You see, when given a choice between Obama and the fully black Cynthia McKinney, who was the Green Party nominee in ’08, they went with the half-white guy.

Rush Limbaugh has a phrase – demonstrate absurdity by being absurd.  For those who have had their funny bones surgically removed (I like to call them Liberals), you may need to look up the meaning of a joke – a story with a humorous climax. Reading an article like this might make a sane person exclaim, “half-this, half-that?  What’s the difference??!!” – EXACTLY!!

I am not considered to be a minority by conventional means, but I can imagine that those who TRULY had to endure discrimination and condescension based on the melanin content of their skin would be pretty upset when charges of racism are thrown around in such a cavalier manner.  It desecrates their sacrifices and it minimizes their struggles.  And… it’s just flat down untrue.

A wise man once said that he had a dream that, “my grandchildren will be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  Electing a man of color was indeed a significant step for America, but that wise man’s dream will not come to pass until we elect someone President for one reason and one reason only – they are the best candidate for the job.

Obama's Jobs (Campaign) Speech: the RIGHT AWAY Recap

Last night the President revealed his eagerly awaited campaign speech/”Jobs” plan to a Joint Session.  It was clear why Obama capitulated to a new date and time for his speechifying.  He needed the applause from the peanut gallery.  That – combined with a calculated passion he has not displayed in months – would make it seem like Obama was actually saying something meaningful.  The President was short on detail but he was sure on one point: Congress must pass this vague, carefully polled, fake jobs plan RIGHT AWAY.  Here are some of our dear leader’s demands in a quick recap:

Obama wants this bill to pass RIGHT AWAY so that we can put teachers back to work and fix schools, because children across the country are apparently unable to go to school until the evil Republicans pass this brilliant plan.  I guess my son’s school didn’t get the memo

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so businesses can grow and thrive again – unless those businesses begin with a G and end with an IBSONGUITARS.  Those businesses can go to hell.

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so Warren Buffet  and other Richy Riches can do the right thing and pay more taxes; because men like Obama and Buffet would never simply give their money away of their own charity, it must be taken from them, and therefore you (even if you are  already the charitable type. Screw you. Suckers.)

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so he can cut 1 trillion out of federal spending by Christmas.  Hopefully you dumb Americans won’t remember the debt ceiling debacle that lasted weeks longer than necessary because the President doesn’t think spending cuts are good for the economy.

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so people in South Korea can drive Fords and GM’s and Chryslers.  Maybe they’ll buy the Volt.

Obama  says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY because middle class Americans can’t wait another 14 months until elections before they see a change in their wallets.  The teleprompter accidentally dropped the part about the middle class also not being able to afford anther 4 years of his oppressive administration. Oops.

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so that the greediest among us can finally start paying their “fair share” in taxes; those exempted from the “fair share” clause include Al Sharpton, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, anybody named Kennedy, anybody who entered into land deals with Tony Rezko, any “churches” who find a clever use for the term “Ameri-KKKa”, George Soros, MMFA and anybody currently belonging to the 48% of Americans who pay no taxes whatsoever.  Everyone else has to do their part. Its only fair.

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so government can get about their constitutionally mandated business of creating jobs; these will be important jobs for teachers, police officers, firefighters and government construction workers.  If you don’t belong to a union, then screw you. You don’t deserve a job.

Obama says Congress must pass the bill RIGHT AWAY so America can avoid the poison of partisan politics.  Also, he needs more stuff to say in his future campaign speech, and most of it’s in the “bill”.

Is it 2012 yet?
