Dementia or Dishonesty, Pelosi Is Unfit for Office

pelosi

While it still requires a willing suspension of reality to believe Rep. Nancy Pelosi (P-CA), wasn’t the spearhead of the dishonesty campaign when she stood before the American people and professed that Congress had to pass Obamacare before we could all understand what was in the bill, her latest declaration about MIT professor Jonathan Gruber doesn’t. What it does evoke is a legitimate question. Is Nancy Pelosi a habitual liar or is she suffering from dementia?

When asked about Johnathan Gruber’s admitting to the overt deception of the American people where the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was concerned, Pelosi responded:

“I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill…and…so…with all due respect to your question, you have a person who wasn’t writing our bill commenting on what was going on when we were writing the bill…”

Yet, in 2009 when Pelosi and her congressional lemmings were selling the snake oil of Obamacare to the American people, she said:

“Our bill brings down rates…I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber’s MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo, versus what will happen in our bill…”

Let’s set aside for a moment that Ms. Pelosi’s declaration that rates would go down was about as wrong as it gets – pathetically and predictably wrong. Are we to believe that the two juxtaposed statements were simply a slip up; just a malfunction of her gray matter? Again, to sign on to that idea requires a willing suspension of reality.

No, it is more likely – and probable – that Ms. Pelosi is demonstrating the Progressive ethic of “ends justifying the means.” Under that ethic, the truth is relative to the outcome desired. To Ms. Pelosi, Mr. Gruber, President Obama and Valerie Jarrett, just to name the major players, lying to; deceiving, the American people to achieve the passage of Obamacare was a necessary evil. To the Progressives – who, incidentally, believe as Jonathan Gruber does that the overwhelming majority of American people are a dull, slow-witted intellectually challenged under-class in need of their brilliance, wisdom, and superior stewardship, lest we all revert back to the ethos of the Stone Age – it is irrelevant that deception was used to acquire their legislative goal, after all, we are simply too stupid to know what is good for us; what is good for society.

This understood, it is easy to see that Ms. Pelosi’s flip-flop on the Grubster wasn’t about a defective memory, it was about sticking to the Progressive meme, not unlike John Lovitz’s Saturday Night Live character “The Liar.” The only thing missing was the rhetorical punctuation, “Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket!”

If Ms. Pelosi were afflicted with dementia rather than Progressivism, I would be sympathetic to her plight. No one can control the ravages of dementia; a tragic and debilitating disease. But she isn’t – to the best of my knowledge – afflicted with dementia, she is afflicted with Progressivism, an ideological malady, and one that a person has to make a conscious decision to foist upon themselves; a malady choke full of arrogance, elitism, condescension and malevolence for your fellow man. I cannot suffer the fools who inflict this malady upon themselves.

As for Ms. Pelosi, the point is moot. Whether it had been dementia rather than Progressivism is irrelevant, both maladies should preclude someone from holding public office. Sadly, not only was Ms. Pelosi re-elected as a US Representative in her congressional district, she was re-elected to party leadership in her chamber.

Do you see how Progressivism rots the brain?

Herman Cain Speaks the Truth on Abortion

Herman Cain got into some hot water the other night on the Peirs Morgan show over his comments on abortion. Mr. Cain’s problem is one that I find quite refreshing, he tells the truth.

The truth about abortion, such as it is, is that ultimately it is the mother who will make that choice, just as Mr. Cain said. They were making it long before Roe v. Wade, and they will make it long after Roe v. Wade is overturned, if it ever is.

The context of Mr. Morgan’s question was, to this author’s hearing, under current law. He asked Mr. Cain what he would do if his granddaughter was the victim of a rape and had become pregnant. Mr. Cain replied that the choice was ultimately up to the family involved.

Cain released a statement the following day in which he said “As to my political policy view on abortion, I am 100% pro-life. End of story. I will appoint judges who understand the original intent of the Constitution. Judges who are committed to the rule of law know that the Constitution contains no right to take the life of unborn children.

I will oppose government funding of abortion. I will veto any legislation that contains funds for Planned Parenthood. I will do everything that a President can do, consistent with his constitutional role, to advance the culture of life.”

In truth, the only choice the government can make about abortion is whether it is done safely and legally, or in a back alley as it was before the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade. If the other candidates don’t understand that it is because they believe in a fantasy land where the law is universally obeyed. It would be nice if that were the case, but to see the reality, one only needs to look at how successful we have been in the war on drugs. The ultimate choice to take illegal drugs still lies with the individual.

It is extremely refreshing to have a candidate who understands the real world, and how it works. It is refreshing to hear him speak honestly about that world. The crowd inside the beltway seems to lack Cain’s insight, and the result is that they pass law after law with horrendous unintended consequences and seem utterly unable to see it. Herman Cain is a real man for a real America.

Tim Pawlenty’s “2012 Presidential Truth Tour”

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty announced his bid for the 2012 Republican nomination for President on Monday, and quickly jumped squarely on the chest of soon to be ex-President Barack Obama with a speech that carried one simple message: The American people deserve to have a leader who will tell them the truth about what is happening in their government today. Check out his video from timpawlenty.com that summarizes his announcement speech that he gave in Iowa on Monday. You can also drop in a donation there if you like this candidate’s message. I certainly do, and I made a donation today.

It truly is A Time for Truth in America in today. It is time we had a leader who will explain to the American people the dangers of the massive $14.5 trillion dollars of debt that we now face. We need people to understand how that debt will burden future generations of children for decades to come.

It is A Time for Truth concerning America’s illegal involvement in the Libyan Civil War, Egypt’s revolution and overthrow of the government there, and just why in the hell are we still in Iraq and Afghanistan today?

It is A Time for Truth about how the recent Obama appointed EPA and radical environmental activists with the far left Liberal agendas have crippled our ability to move forward in using our domestic energy resources, further putting us at the mercy of what are largely America-hating, foreign oil producing countries. How is that $4 dollar a gallon gasoline working out for your family?

It is A Time for Truth concerning how a self-avowed Communist Van Jones came to be working in OUR White House under the guise of being the Green Jobs Czar. Never mind the leftist lies and propaganda from the far lafet Liberals and their media puppets about how Glenn Beck somehow slandered a good man and got him fired. The Communist is on video saying it in his own words for crying out loud, wake up people. It is time for Obama and company to come clean with the truth about that swept-under-the-rug episode of treason against the American people.

It is A Time for Truth about why in the hell our federal government is suing the State of Arizona for demanding the enforcement of Federal law!

It is A Time for Truth in discussing the State-budget-crushing effects Obama-care will have on every State in the country, due to the massive mandated expansion of State medicaid rolls, not to mention the unconstitutionality of forcing people to buy a product from our incompetent, dysfunctional government that couldn’t even run a cash for clunkers program efficiently. It is also A Time for Truth on how Americans could ever become stupid enough to believe that adding 30 million people to a government-run health-care system will reduce health-care costs and result in better health-care. Tell that lie to the Seniors who have already had $500 billion dollars cut from their health-care budget just to make that scam come in under Obama’s under $1 trillion dollar cost demand. Now Obama and the Democrats are trying to say the GOP and Paul Ryan want to kill Granny by stealing her medicare.Have you people already forgotten the $500 billion dollar hit their medicare already took in the Democrat’s fake health-care reform bill that they rammed through Congress against the people’s wishes?

Finally, it is A Time for Truth about our stagnant economy, including high unemployment, and the skyrocketing food, gas, electricity and everyday cost of living today that the Obama administration and Ben Bernanke refuse to admit the truth about. Haven’t any of you dishonest politicians bought food, gas or anything else in this country lately?  Milk is now at $3.79 a gallon here in Florida, and it wasn’t long ago I paid $2.29 a gallon ! That sure as hell looks like inflation to me there. At the same time, Seniors have been refused a measly cost of living increase for two years running here! Just who does that make us think is on the side of actually caring about the Senior citizens living on a fixed income in America today? Sure as hell isn’t Obama and the Democrats when we look at those facts there. It is high time Seniors wake up and join in the conversation on just how they are being effected by Obama-nomics!

Yes Sir, I agree with Mr. Pawlenty that it certainly is A Time for Truth come the 2012 Presidential elections, and that means a truth that the Obama administration  continues to refuse to give to the American people.

Palestinian: A People Or A Marketing Term?

After today’s literal fall from grace in the eyes of God Almighty due to President Obama betraying the nation and people of Israel, the social media outlets blew up like wildfire! There were so many tweets coming through that I literally could not keep up with them. I re-tweeted many, I posted many, I wrote an article… in the midst of all of this, my heart was literally breaking for this once great nation. Yes, I say once great nation, because we will fall quickly by taking a national stand against God’s chosen people!

One tweet came across that caught my eye and I retweeted it. I’ve thought long and hard on it throughout the afternoon. It is my firm belief that this tweet is absolute truth. However, I think it is very important to lay out some facts to prove it as truth.

The tweet was sent by Hope d’Amore :

“PALESTINIAN” is a marketing term. YRU calling 4 creation of a nation out of whole cloth? The ISRAELITES WERE THERE 1k yrs BC.

As I began researching this topic for actual facts I found an abundance of half-truths woven in with outright lies.

We have reached yet another milestone in our day and age with technology that was foretold in prophecy thousands of years ago.

But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Daniel 12:4

It does not take a genius to realize that we have reached the time that God speaks of to Daniel in this passage. On a minute-by-minute basis people all around the world are “going here and there” by way of planes, trains and automobiles.

We now have the sum of human knowledge at our fingertips in the Internet.

However, knowledge does not necessarily mean it is truth. Just because it is written or spoken does not mean that it is fact. I can tell you that the grass is blue but that does not make it so. There are just some things that go beyond simple “perception”. Dictionary.com defines “propaganda” as:

prop·a·gan·da
–noun
1. information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc.
2. the deliberate spreading of such information, rumors, etc.
3. the particular doctrines or principles propagated by an organization or movement.

This is exactly what I have found in doing my research. I had just about decided I was going to have to go to the actual brick and mortar building of my local library to find some history books to give facts for this article. While I have numerous writings here at home I do not have exactly what I am looking for and need for this article. That will change, as more than ever before I want to make I am armed with the facts of Israel in history. Facts…. not opinions or perceptions- or propaganda.

So much of what I found is nothing but outright propaganda.

What is being spread by the liberal main (lame) stream media today is an organized idea spread world-wide to harm- or their ultimate goal- kill the people of Israel.

It’s very interesting how the physical world is so intertwined with the spiritual world- so much so that we do not even realize it! What we are witnessing is what has been going on for thousands of years. We have a ring-side seat to one of the largest spiritual battles of all time. It is a battle between good and evil.

God’s Word tells us that Satan is the “Father of lies”:

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

So it only makes sense that this spiritual war is being waged with outright lies.

I finally found this website that answers this question: “Are the Palestinians Descendants of Jews who Converted to Islam?” by Dr. Rivka Shpak Lissak.

The popaganda that is addressed at the very beginning is:

“…that the present Jews are not the descendants of the ancient Jews who lived in the land of Israel 2,000 years ago but descendants of coverts. Since they are Jews by religion, but not by ethnicity, they have no rights for a state on this land, and the Arabs who have lived year for generations are the true owners of this land.”

Dr. Lissak calls it was it is from the very beginning- propaganda. Just because people world wide are propagating this idea as fact does not make it true. You can call a monkey an elephant but that doesn’t make it so!

Rather than quoting half of the information from this website, I urge you to go to the site and read word for word what the truth- the history- the actual FACTS are! There are additional links on the bottom of the page that will give you much more information. In fact, I will be spending a great deal of time in the coming days combing through this site and reading as much information as I can find.

This quote sums up the true purpose of the propaganda and those who spread the lies about Israel:

“The Arabic- Palestinian narrative as well as Zands’ thesis are efforts to rewrite history for political considerations: To eliminate the Jewish state.

The thesis of this article is that there is no evidence that thousands of Jews converted to Islam.”

You cannot get more clear than that!

I cannot speak for every word on the site, but I have not yet found anything that causes my alarm bells to go off. And believe me, after the research I’ve delved into today and into this evening, warning bells have not stopped going off in my head!

Ultimately, The Holy Bible is THE ONLY TRUTH there is! However, history proves God’s Word is Truth. Facts, not propaganda, are what we must stand for.

There is one misconception among many for those who do not support Israel in regards to how they view those of us who do stand with Israel. It is often “understood” that by supporting and standing with Israel that we choose to look past the things that the people of Israel- the Jews- have done wrong. This is simply not true. We are all human. We all fail at one point or another… most of us at least one time a day if not more! None of us are perfect! However, to expect the people of Israel to not protect themselves from the continuous onslaught of violence is ridiculous!

The “Palestinian” propaganda has served to twist facts- changing them completely in many instances.

This site- The Bible On Jewish Links to the Holy Land – is one that I found the most informative for what I wanted for this article. Remember what I said- The Bible is THE source of Truth that we must base all of our arguments on. Abraham was promised the land of Israel by God Almighty Himself almost 4,000 years ago. Here is a quote from this site that debunks the propaganda of “Palestine”:

“Israel is known by a number of names, including Canaan, Eretz Yisrael, Zion, or simply as ha-aretz, meaning “the land,” a sign of its belovedness and significance. It is the Holy Land, par excellence. God promised Abraham that he and his descendants would inherit the land of Israel as an eternal possession.”

I went to dozens of websites researching this topic, and time after time the land was referred to as “Palestine”. Palestine is NOT one of the names that the Holy Land is called! God promised the Holy Land- Israel (ie Canaan, Eretz Yisrael, Zion, ha-aret, the land) to Abraham and his descendants as an ETERNAL possession! To use more common words to make this crystal clear for those who refuse to accept this fact:

God promised the Holy Land- Israel- to Abraham and his descendants- the Jewish people- FOREVER!

If this is still not clear enough, I invite you to visit the thesaurus.com to see the other synonyms listed for eternal.

The propaganda machines can deny it all they like, but again, just because something is said or written doesn’t make it fact. You have to have FACTS to back up your argument.

This fact alone makes the argument

“Jewish rights to the land were always part of the very fabric of Creation.”

Of course I know there are those who will say that is not true, but facts are facts. We know that this is fact rather than propaganda because

“the Hebrew verb used in the Scriptures is natati, meaning “I have given” (past tense). This passage implies that God had already given the land to the Jews at some earlier time, though this is the first record of such a promise. Rabbinic commentators suggest, however, that God had set aside the land of Israel for His people already at the time of Creation.”

Language is a funny thing. It is factual. There have been movies made in foreign languages that are no longer spoken (“The Passion of The Christ” and “Apocalypto” to name two of them). How do we know that the words that were spoken in the movie were of the specific language of the time recreated on film? Simple. Facts. You cannot argue with facts.

I could spend the rest of my life writing on this topic, but I would simply be quoting other people. I am no scholar- Biblical or otherwise. But I do know fact from propaganda.

Israel belongs to the Jewish people- descendants of Abraham.

Twist the facts or lie if you will… that does not make it true.

Israel- and I mean ALL of Israel as outlined in the Bible, and represented by this map, belongs to the Jewish people!

Another Great Source of Facts: Israel’s Legal Right To The Land

Jews have a legitimate claim to the whole of Israel. They are not the “occupying force” as misinformation suggests.

Zephaniah 2:8-11

“ I have heard the reproach of Moab,
And the insults of the people of Ammon,
With which they have reproached My people,
And made arrogant threats against their borders.
Therefore, as I live,”
Says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,
“ Surely Moab shall be like Sodom,
And the people of Ammon like Gomorrah—
Overrun with weeds and saltpits,
And a perpetual desolation.
The residue of My people shall plunder them,
And the remnant of My people shall possess them.”
This they shall have for their pride,
Because they have reproached and made arrogant threats
Against the people of the LORD of hosts.
The LORD will be awesome to them,
For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth;
People shall worship Him,
Each one from his place,
Indeed all the shores of the nations.
