That Was Then … This Is Now – Reagan Era vs. The Age Of Obama

Like night and day, hot and cold, our lives are so different today than they were some 20 years ago.  For that matter, our lives are drastically different than they were just 18 months ago.

Mourning in America

As President Obama and Vice President Biden launch an ambitious, cross country scramble to fix the upcoming elections and cure the hemorrhaging of support for their “Great Experiment” that is miserably failing, a new television ad is released nationwide.

“Mourning in America” is a whisper—–not a shout.

It’s a parallel to an ad Ronald Reagan ran in 1984—“Morning in America.”

Obama’s not on any ballot on the Nov. 2 elections. But this slow-paced visual….

…message by Fred Davis of Strategic Perception for Citizens for the Republic is aimed smack dab at him — and by implication all those who support the incumbent’s “grand experiment” that has so regrettably failed.  “Mourning in America” depicts a sadness in America rather than the anger that has been heard all across the nation these last 2 years.

Take 2 minutes and watch both videos and see how you feel after viewing both of them.  We must reverse the last 2 years and stop the disastrous 2 years left for Obama.

Republicans Will Reclaim Life And Marriage Issues On Their Agenda

H/t Manhattan Declaration


Great news!

So many of you emailed the Republican House leader’s office last week urging the party not to backtrack on its commitment to life, liberty and marriage that you brought the email servers down.  We have just been informed that the Republican leadership WILL now include references to marriage and federal funding of abortion in their election agenda.

Thank you for acting so promptly!  Before your action this was a dead issue — you helped turn attitudes around, a great victory.

But now we must keep the momentum, so we’re asking you to do two things today:
1.    Commit to participate in the PRAY and ACT campaign for forty days of prayer and fasting (if possible) beginning today,  September 20 through October 30. CLICK HERE to download a Pray and ACT guide to get you started.

2.    Provide your personal financial support to help fuel this Manhattan Declaration movement.  This is a very low overhead operation with no staff.  But we need funds to keep the website operating.  Our resources are very low at the moment and we very much need your help. Visit the Manhattan Declaration website to make a donation.

Help us encourage a growing, vibrant movement of Christians from across denominational and confessional lines, to impact our society with Christian truth.

Thank you and God Bless you,

Timothy George

“It’s Called Extortion” – Another Defense Of Pastor Terry Jones’ 1st Amendment Rights

This is an op-ed by Gary Bauer – American Values

It speaks for itself –

It’s Called Extortion

Yesterday, Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida, backed off from his pledge to burn Korans on 9/11. Others in at least three states are now promising to follow through if Jones does not. I’ve already made the point that this tactic is stupid. There are two wars going on – one on battlefields and one for hearts and minds. You don’t win the latter war when you engage in offensive tactics. Instead of burning the Koran, I recommend that he read passages from it and then ask Muslims if they embrace those passages that urge violence against non-believers.

Having said that, it is equally disgusting to see the president, the FBI and others embracing what amounts to jihadist extortion. Here’s what I mean: Jones was threatening to burn a Koran and if he does we’re being told there will be violence against America all over the world. It is one thing to say this is a bad idea. But it’s another thing to use this threat of mayhem as a justification for denying Pastor Jones’ First Amendment rights.

There is no justification for others to engage in “holy war” as a result of the burning of a Koran. In no normal arena, in no normal culture can there be equivalency between an offensive symbolic act and the killing of human beings. And the president of all people should be making that case.

How many Christians rioted, how many people died when our tax dollars were used to put a crucifix in a vat of urine? (Perhaps the Left would be applauding Pastor Jones if he had requested a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.) How many Buddhists rioted when the Taliban blew up the Bamiyan Buddahs? Where was the outrage when Hamas militants burned Bibles and crosses in Gaza?

Rather than kowtowing to extremists, President Obama should have denounced the burning of any religious text. But he also should have forcefully condemned the threats of violence and promised swift retaliation if American lives are threatened.

This pastor has a congregation that is smaller than Michelle Obama’s staff. But he has raised an issue that is much bigger and far more important than the ill-advised burning of a Koran – the violent propensity of so many adherents of the “religion of peace.”

On the one hand, we’re constantly being told that Islam is a religion of peace. On the other hand, public officials from the president down are gripped by fear over the potential reaction of Muslims if a Koran is burned. And seeing our weakness, Imam Feisal Rauf has now elevated his planned Ground Zero mega-mosque to the level of a national security issue. He told CNN this week that if the mosque has to move, American blood might be spilled. Here’s what he said:

“If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse. The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. …if we do move, it will strengthen the argument of the radicals to recruit, their ability to recruit, and their increasing aggression and violence against our country. …our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it, and what we do. …

“If you don’t do this right, anger will explode in the Muslim world. If this is not handled correctly, this crisis could become much bigger than the Danish cartoon crisis… If we don’t handle this crisis correctly, it could become something which could really become very, very, very dangerous indeed.”


So now we must build a mosque at Ground Zero and if we don’t, Muslims will riot and murder. If we burn a Koran, Muslims will riot and murder. If we print cartoons, Muslims will riot and murder. Where does it end? When we retreat from the Middle East? When we abandon Israel? When America bows to Mecca?

By the way, a federal judge yesterday struck down the military’s “Don’t ask, Don’t Tell” policy. In some Islamic nations, homosexuality is punishable by death. Can you imagine what the reaction of America’s elites would be if we said that open homosexuality in the U.S. military would enrage the Muslim world?

Good Job, Senator McCain … Stay Focused

Last night was a good night for Senator John McCain. He won the very dirty fight with former Congressman J.D. Hayworth in the Arizona primaries.  In order to pull this off, Sen. McCain had to ‘come to the RIGHT of center’ and clean up his ‘ole maverick’ act.

Yep, that’s right, he knew he had to come clean with the issues and come back to the conservative side if he wanted to win and he wanted to win this one very badly.

It would have been a bone crusher had he lost this election, too.

One of the reasons that motivated him was President Barack Hussein Obama.  Senator McCain now sees what a lose for the country that he and Sarah Palin did not win.  I think he thinks that had he gone after Obama the way he went after George W. Bush, their first time around, he would have taken Obama out and would the president today.

McCain dislikes Obama with a passion and that moment during the Health Care Summit when President Obama said this to Senator McCain ….

we knew the ‘game was on’.  That moment was in many ways, the McCain/Obama rematch.  Obama’s nastiness and immaturity did not help the situation. So McCain has in his head that he has to oppose Obama’s radical agenda every chance he gets and to do this he has to still be Senator McCain not Citizen McCain.

Just think about it – when the GOP takes over in November and puts restraints on Obama, this will do a lot of us a world of good and you can bet that John McCain will poke his finger in Obama’s eye.

McCain has a tendency to hold grudges and to re-visit feuds with his opponents.  Let’s just watch and see how he handles himself when the GOP will control the conversation after November and Obama will have to make adjustments to work with the Republicans, something Obama has refused to do so far.

I can’t wait to hear Senator McCain say to President Obama, “Look President Obama, the mid-term elections are over and now the Republicans control the conversation.”

Lastly, John McCain is and always will be a real,  live American hero. No matter how angry we were with him during the 2008 presidential campaign, when he suspended that campaign to “fix the economy”, and ended up losing the election, we still honor and admire him and the courage he displayed during his captivity in Vietnam.  No one will ever be able to take that from him.

Good job, Senator McCain, and thank you for your service … and stay focused.

The Past Will Become The Future Unless We Stop Obama’s Agenda

Mug shots of some of the WeatherUnderground

Two of these individuals hosted President Barack Obama in their living room back in 1995 when they launched Obama’s political career. (Bill and Bernadine Dohrn Ayers)

One of these individuals helped  write Obama’s Stimulus Package last year. (Jeff Jones)

The USA has fallen into the hands of radicals, but I think most of us fail to grasp the totalitarian intent of all the “Change” being rammed down our throats. We talk of 2010 and 2012 as the time to throw out the bums. However, I fear the Left won’t go away on the basis of votes.

We are in the midst of a revolution, not with guns and tanks, but with a fundamental reconstruction of our whole political system. The Obama team is in a frenzy of transforming America, as Obama said they would.

With 30 – 40 czars in place already, this administration has followed a consistent theme of establishing unassailable power, above the scrutiny of Congress or the courts. Obama and his radical cronies also have shown a clear intent to flout the Constitution. Not to bend it a little, as politicians have done in the past, but to use it as their toilet paper!

It’s a mistake to think that Obama and his radicals will stop just because of one bad election.  He is scrambling right now to divide the country by creating hostility, controversy and jealousy among various groups of people. Illegal immigration, gay marriage,  and race relations are but a few topics of discussion being used by Obama to divide and conquer.  He will stop at nothing and he has radicals in place to support him in destroying this country.

What a dangerous time this is for us, America.  But, what a God we have!  I do believe that God still has purpose for our country.  This is why it is so important that we not only focus on  financial, economic, and security issues but also the SOCIAL/CULTURAL issues as well. If we don’t turn back to God and repent of our destructive ways, we will surely lose our country.  We remember Sodom and Gomorrah don’t we? ( actual location of Sodom and Gomorrah found)

We must be a whole people and fight for the complete restoration of this nation.  This will be a long and hard war with many battles to come.  We have to win the upcoming battle this November.

If we don’t, we can say good-bye to the America we have known and loved all these years.  Obama and his radicals will finish the job they have started.  If you don’t believe it, just watch the videos below.

President Obama said during the 2008 presidential campaign that he was only eight years old when Bill Ayers and the WeatherUnderground were bombing various institutions around the country.  That doesn’t matter – because Mr. and Mrs. Ayers and other radicals are still very much committed to the cause of completing their revolution.  They continue to be unrepentant, and now they know they have the White House.

Bill Ayers announced his retirement from teaching at the University of Illinois Chicago campus last week.  He knows that this is the only time they will have this much power and he must be free of all distractions in order to help fundamentally change America – once and for all.

President Obama and Bill Ayers agree on major issues

Stay focused. Trust God.  Fight for our country!

Excerpt from article titled: Barack Obama, America’s First Elected Traitor President

By Rev. Lainie Dowell

August 3, 2010

[…]

Barack Obama is no friend of America. He is illegally and unconstitutionally organizing and leading a lobbying force of monumental proportions from out of the White House in order to help him create his “citizen government,” to eventually bypass the legally constitutional legislative process.

Moreover, they have been on a practice run. They have developed their own online voting booths that feed directly into the Wells of both the United States House and the United States Senate. And it is no secret he is very near to taking over all social networking sites on the internet to be able to censor and control all areas of communication and, thereby, chill free speech.

Obama’s Organizing for America (OFA) the offshoot of his “Obama For America” (OFA) has latched onto many national and international “partnerships.” They have aided in providing online access to all of the pending bills. And their purpose is to bring about “Direct Democracy.” The GOVIT site is better than the United States government website and more accessible. With permission from the Obama Administration, they have generated the software and sites that allow anybody anywhere to sign up and to vote at the same time as our elected representatives and senators in Washington, D.C. And, they know it is happening, too!

The GOVIT supporters believe that our elected leaders don’t know what the American people want; therefore, their purpose is to, in the near term, completely bypass Congress and create their own laws which will affect the entire nation. Anybody will be able to vote online even though Congress has not enacted any laws for them to do so, and the American people are unaware such activities (and more) are going on even as Obama feigns ignorance. Congress needs to step up and investigate that website, shut it down, and ensure the Executive Branch never institutes anything else like it—ever again! That Obama-generated ploy is misleading, subversive, unconstitutional and, regardless of the fact that Obama is their leader, those activities are illegal and dangerous to the general health and welfare of this nation.

The Smith Act – Long May It Live!

Contrary to popular belief, the Smith Act of the 1940s is alive and well in the land. In fact, as of February 2010, it has been updated. Anybody who reads it will see how closely it mirrors the Obama Administration ideology, and that Obama is courting impeachment, a trial, heavy fines, and/or imprisonment for many years, as a criminal traitor.

The Smith Act makes it very clear what constitutes a criminal UN-American offense against this nation, as well as penalties. It is quoted below, as follows:

U.S. Code § 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government

How Current is This? Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.

Now, I hope the reader understands that Barack Obama is blatantly and arrogantly setting up this nation for a fall and to deliver it into the hands of our enemies near and far by enacting laws which are unconstitutional, by enacting laws through the Executive Order process, by hauling in his self-appointed, unvetted and ungodly people and shoving them between those who were lawfully approved by Congress to serve and himself. And, by Obama vigorously building up his own coalition grassroots, parliamentarian government within our Republic, he has more than provided enough evidence to support his impeachment and criminal trial and punishment in accordance with the United States Constitution and the rule of law.

Obama has done all he knows how to subvert the American political election process by his personal perpetual campaigning and his wholly partisan form of governance. His overall illegally undue influence can only result in a failed process and a failed nation. He must be stopped and Congress must step forward and act now to let him be the example to deter anybody anywhere who is harboring the self-same ideologies to take up where he will have left off. Unless steps are taken to stop Obama’s subversive actions, we are only pushing the problem down the road. And Obama is already up there with his criminal forces waiting to push back. Can anybody say, “Iran,” “Cuba,” “Venezuela,” and more?

But for the corruption running rampantly throughout our legal system and government, Obama and all of his cohorts who apparently want American citizens to believe they are all exempt from having to obey the law would, themselves, have likely become the American example of a modern-day Nuremberg. And, the only reason they have remained in office for so long is because too many of our elected legislators are instigators and perpetrators. Moreover, they are timid and our judiciary is corrupt. But the loyalty of free citizens of the United States of America belongs to the United States Constitution and not to the man who takes – and forsakes – the oath “to protect, preserve, and defend” it. Opting instead, to set himself up as the dictator-arbiter of every area of our lives.

Happy Lord’s Day To All!

Dear God, Do Not Allow Obama Another Supreme Court Appointment

If Obama gets another appointment opportunity – the America we know and love will be shot!

this from Maggie’s Notebook

Jeff Sessions: America Will Not Forgive this Senate for Confirming Kagan

Senator Jeff Sessions

Minutes before the vote to confirm Elena Kagan, Senator Jeff Sessions said “The American people will not easily forgive this Senate if we confirm Ms. Kagan to the Supreme Court.” Think about waking up on November 3rd, 2010 without the significant change needed to keep another Elena Kagan off the Supreme Court.

Those voting for Kagan wonder what all the fuss is about, and try to ignore the fact that 37 members of the Senate voted against her. Only three additional votes were needed to filibuster, yet five Republicans voted yea for a nominee: who has never been a judge; they knew manipulated abortion facts, and turned them into lies which overturned an abortion ban in Nebraska; who at Harvard refused Military recruiters on the grounds, and welcomed Islamic Shariah financing, which funds terrorism, into the law school along with three Saudi-funded studies of Shariah.

Republican Senators voting for Kagan were Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe (Maine), Lindsey Graham (NC), Dick Lugar (IN), and unbelievably Judd Gregg of New Hampshire. Senator Ben Nelson (NE) is the lone Democrat voting against Elena Kagan.

By modern standards, Justice Kagan’s 63 confirmation votes isn’t exactly an overwhelming display of support. Of the Supreme Court’s nine current justices, 63 ranks fairly low —

Stevens (98),

Kennedy (97),

Scalia (98),

Ginsburg (96),

Breyer (87),

Roberts (78),

Sotomayor (68)

Thomas (52)

Alito (58)

Today we talk about fighting for the America that we know and have known. If Obama is allowed to make another appointment, that America is gone.

Justice Anthony Kennedy says he will put-off his retirement until after the 2012 presidential election. Hallelujah for that, but we still cannot assure through this court appointed for a lifetime that the Constitution will guide the way our government works.

We must understand that the Supreme Court is the most important issue we face today. Senator Sessions’ prediction that this appointment will not be forgiven is insightful.
