Help me keep this blog up for a long time!

I won’t bore you with details. I am just not in a good way right now money-wise.

I’m not going to end up in the street, I am just not working and money is at an all time low. I do not have Google AdSense anymore, they yanked my account for an unknown reason.

So, I’m asking for help.

As another well-known blogger would put it, hit the freakin’ tip jar!





If you want this to be a regular thing:


Donation Amount Options (These are rebilled monthly!)




Again, I hate asking. But, reality is reality; and I just do not have any job prospects lined up. The Business? Heh. that’s a joke anymore. I did have a job prospect, but that all fell through. Nothing I did on my part, just did not work out at all.

Oh, by the way; on Thursday, June 28’th — I will be 40 years old. 40 years old, no job, broke and living with my parents. You have any idea what that does to man? You could never even begin to imagine. :(

Also too, if you do not like or do not trust PayPal; I can give you my home address. It is out there, if you are good with Google. But, if not and you want to help out, without using PayPal, let me know.

Thanks for your loyal readership for the 8 years that I ran this blog.

A High tech lynching of Herman Cain

In regards to Herman Cain and the accusations against him.

It’s this: (Via Alhouse)

20 years later and it is the same song and dance —- except for one thing, it is coming from right and not the left, as it is being reported in some quarters.

Video: Herman Cain can win

Despite what people like this lily-white Catholic woman here say; — who seems to suffer from some sort of Trent Lott syndrome or maybe it is the fact that she really needs to go have a baby or something. It can only help her, then perhaps she will stop posting dopey stories about baby pictures — and tormenting Conservative black men who run for President — Herman Cain can win this election, if racist remnants of the Trent Lott era of the Republican, like the woman linked above, would just leave him alone. It does seem to be their M.O. as of late; discredit the token Negro, so that they can protect the ivory-white tower of Republicanism that they have been occupying for so very long.

My question is this, to all two of you, that might actually read this posting; if the Republican Party is truly the Party of Lincoln; is it not time that we, as white Conservatives, have stopped trying to prevent blacks, who might actually be able to represent that Party the way it is supposed to be represented — from actually running for office and winning? Case in point: Allen Keyes.

Having said that, here is nice video made by a new group called Americans for Herman Cain:

Therefore, please, Republicans, do the right thing here, support a man, who loves his Country and wants to make it a better place for you and me — and our Children and their Children. Donate to Herman Cain.

Corrected some grammar errors in the original posting — what I get for typing so fast. :D

Video: Pamela Geller’s banned speech In Texas

This comes via the Lady herself:

For those of you who do not like the idea of posting what Pamela has to say; I have two things to say —- first, as Herman Cain would say, “I does not care.”  Also, I would say to those who would have a problem with me posting this video, I would politely ask you to go see Helen Waite and ask for directions.

God Bless America.

Going Forward: The Future of PoliticalByline.com

This is a posting, which I have been meaning to write for a very long time; I just needed the right moment and the excuse to write it. As I wrote here earlier this week, President Barack Obama announced that American Military forces would be leaving the Country of Iraq at the end of 2011; which would essentially end the Country’s Military presence in the Nation of Iraq.

Update on Church situation

I wrote here a little while back that I was checking out a new Church. I said the following:

I am prayerfully considering the matter and I ask for your prayers going forward in it.

I went to the Church for a few services and I did decide to pass on the Church. What it boils down to is some personal preferences of mine; also, in addition, there were some issues with the Pastor as well. Therefore, I decided to pass on that Church. I thank the man, who was kind enough to invite me.

I do have another one in mind, however I will be very honest with you, and I am not in a great hurry to become involved with another Church again. I am still a bit gun-shy about attending a Church again; mainly because of my being burned here about 5 years ago, by a Pastor who preached one thing and did another in his personal dealings. When this occurred, I essentially said that I would most likely never get involved with another Church group. However, this man’s kindness and boldness to share the gospel with a total stranger captured my interest.

There is one thing that will not change around here and that is my walk with the Lord. I will not be posting secular music here any longer. Just because it does not look good for a person, who is supposed to be a Christian, of which the term means someone who is a follower of Christ — to be posting music on a blog, of which he is the owner. In other words, I will leave the music posting to the liberals who support that music and lifestyle it represents.

Another thing I need to point here is that I am fully aware of the fact that I have let myself go here in the last six years. When I was burned by that Pastor and a few other people involved in that whole situation back in 2006, I came home that day, put my Christianity on the back burner, and delved into the world of politics. I guess you could say that I needed a distraction from the recent events, which worked for me, because I did not want to dwell on what had happened too much, because I did not want to become bitter over it. Therefore, I just changed gears and started writing about politics. However, to gain more readers around here, I did some things, that now as I reflect on it more, might have not been expedient for someone who is a Christian. This was my own personal oversight and I take full responsibility for that.

In closing, going forward here at this blog, which I do plan on writing about in detail here in another posting, I do plan to watch myself a bit more as a Christian. I also will find a Church, when I am ready for that. For now though, I just do not feel an overly compelling reason to be a part of one. It is a myth that Church attendance is a requirement for anything at all, least of all, one’s personal salvation. (Update: The posting that I spoke of, is now here.)

Patrick Buchanan writes a column that every Conservative should read

I will be the very first to confess that there are issues in politics that I very high disagree with Patrick J. Buchanan on.  However, Mr. Buchanan does have a good idea of what Conservatism should be about; having said that, let me personally recommend this article here by Patrick Buchanan.  Again, I have disagreed with the man, at times; but this is not one of them.

This article ought to be in the e-mail inbox of every darned last Conservative in America this morning.

More of that “religion of peace” in action

Click here, here, here, and here.

Just a little taste of what you are going to read:

An opening statement is not evidence, merely a preview of the case the prosecution will mount in coming weeks based on testimony, forensics, wiretaps, documents and a plethora of photos. The crux of it: That parents and 18-year-old brother planned and executed the murders from outrage over the intolerable, the defiance of daughters and the alliance with them of a woman treated for years as a burden and a slave.

A disgrace and shame to their family, though, for behaviour unbecoming to Afghan [Muslim] females — the boyfriends and the disobedience, the brazen disrespect for traditions and refusal to wear the hijab — violations of decorum so grievous that they needed to be killed, eliminated, to purify family honour, their “treachery’’ insupportable.

Mass murder committed, a court heard Thursday, by the mother and father and brother of the sisters, homicides staged to look like an accident during a family vacation, with Zainab at the wheel, on one of her furtive joyrides.

Mohammad Shafia, Tooba Mohammad Yahya and their son Hamed Mohammed Shafia have all pleaded not guilty to four counts each of first-degree murder. Their jury trial began here Thursday with a 90-minute opening statement from Crown Attorney Laurie Lacelle that left observers in the courtroom stunned over details finally revealed and allegations of a diabolical plot that defy imagination.

From a wiretapped conversation Shafia had with Tooba and Hamed, 20 days after the bodies were discovered, Shafia in a fury recalling the revealing cellphone pictures of Zainab and Shahar: “Curse God on both of them. Is that what a daughter should be? Would a daughter be such a whore? May the devil s–t on their graves.”

And later, not long before the trio was arrested in Montreal, Shafia tells Hamed, as Lacelle quoted from another wiretap transcript: “Even if they hoist me up on to the gallows, nothing is more dear to me than my honour.”

To his wife, Shafia allegedly assured that the right actions had been taken: “I say to myself, you did well. Were they to come back to life, I would do it again. No Tooba, they messed up. There was no other way. They were treacherous. They betrayed us immensely. There can be no betrayal worse than this. They committed treason on themselves. They betrayed humankind. They betrayed Islam. They betrayed our religion. They betrayed everything.”

From the sisters, there appears no words were left behind. But Rona wrote in her diary, the Crown told the jury, what she was thinking, fearing, in the weeks, even years, before her death, anxieties she also shared with siblings overseas when she was able to get out of the house and make phone calls.

This was the murder weapon:

This was the family:

These are the people who did it:

All in the name of Islam.

Now you tell me that Islam is a Religion of peace? I call you a liar.

Obama supported company gets U.S. Loan and builds cars…. In Finland

This ought to be a lesson to every last Democrat who voted for Obama and Biden.

The Video:

The Story:

With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.

Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department’s $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland.

“There was no contract manufacturer in the U.S. that could actually produce our vehicle,” the car company’s founder and namesake told ABC News. “They don’t exist here.”

Henrik Fisker said the U.S. money so far has been spent on engineering and design work that stayed in the U.S., not on the 500 manufacturing jobs that went to a rural Finnish firm, Valmet Automotive.

“We’re not in the business of failing; we’re in the business of winning. So we make the right decision for the business,” Fisker said. “That’s why we went to Finland.”

via Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars In Finland – ABC News.

Here is the real-world translation to that last line in that story; we did not want to have to deal with the labor unions in this United States, so we moved our manufacturing overseas.

Take note my Democratic Party friends who happen to read this blog, all two of you.  This is what happens to the Democrats and their union counterparts, when they elect internationalist Democrats, who really do not give a care about what happens to American workers.  Internationalist Democrats and their Republican counterparts, the globalists — like Richard Nixon, who do not care about American workers, they are corporatists, who support crony capitalism.

This right here is a perfect example of why the relations between the Democratic Party and the labor unions are frosty at best.  That is because the Democratic Party for the last few instances that they have won elections, have been putting internationalist Democrats into the White House.  This type of a Democrat talks a nice game, and puts out platitudes to the American autoworkers and their representatives in the unions; but when the “Rubber hits the road” so to speak, things change.  They begin showing their true colors and start doing things to kick dirt in the face of the American worker.

I do not write this as a Conservative mocking the left, goodness no.  I write this as someone who has a father, who is a retired General Motors worker, who is a member of the UAW.  If anyone would know how the Democratic Party has treated the American autoworker in the last 30 years, it would be me.  There was a time in this Country, when the Democratic Party used to respect the American autoworker and would literally step in front a train to defend them.  Sadly, that time has passed, as the unions have lost their influence amongst the Democratic Party.

The loss of that influence in the Democratic Party is partially due to the actions of the internationalist Democrats, like Bill Clinton, who signed into law NAFTA and TAFTA.  Some of that loss of influence is also due to the declining membership roles within the UAW and other said unions.  Either way, it is sad transition in America, when our politicians in Washington D.C. put interests abroad before interests here at home.

Some of my readers, all three of you, might be shocked to see that I do not take a more mocking tone on stories like this and here is why I do not; Pat Buchanan said it best once, on one issue that I actually agree with him on — the American worker.  Pat once said, “As goes Detroit, goes the Nation,” and you know what?  Pat Buchanan is right about that, the United States of America used to be a manufacturing marvel.  We produced everything ourselves, and other Countries used to come here to see how we did it all.  Sadly, those times have come and gone, due to many reasons, a list of which is longer than the length of this blog entry will permit.

What is solution you ask, I know what it is; but most of the people who will come here to read, will not agree with it.  However, I will give the solution.  Firstly, the solution is NOT to bust up the unions, as they have as much right to proper representation, as the company owners have a right to make a profit.  The solution to the problem is to get rid of these idiotic so-called “Free Trade” agreements.  Secondly, the solution is to impose strict tariffs on EVERYTHING and I do mean everything that is manufactured overseas and imported into our Country.

These actions would do a couple of things; firstly it would protect the American workers from the globalists who want to undercut the American worker to make a quick dollar on the backs of cheap sweatshop labor in foreign countries like China.  Secondly, it would solve our Nation’s revenue problem by creating a reliable source of income; one of which we did have in this Country for a very long time, before the globalists ripped it out, in favor of trade agreements.

Further, the solution is in whom we elect; Republicans and Democrats alike need to elect those who put America’s interests first, and not the interests who those abroad.  To be fair, Republicans have done this too in this past and we as Americans need to watch what these new crop of Republicans really represent; do they represent the interests of the crony capitalists or do they have the American people’s interests in mind?  Supposedly, the Tea Party movement brought some of this “America First” type of populism to the Conservative movement, but as of late, it seems that the Tea Party was nothing more than a passing fad.  I just hope the people, who went to these protests, use the principles that were promoted at the Tea Party rallies, at the ballot box come November 2012.

Breaking News: Gaddafi is Dead – VIDEO ADDED

When you get jolted out of a deep sleep, from the sound of your iPod touch going, “Blip! Bloop! Bing! Blip!” something big is going on! Good grief! Why couldn’t they off this guy at a decent hour?!?!

Anyhow, the world’s ugliest snappy dresser is with his 72 virgins now. The Lockerbie Bombing victims now have some closure.

The Telegraph has the story, including a rather graphic photo of the fallen leader, gave me the heaves. Memeorandum has a round up of all the blogger reactions.

As always Ed Morrissey has some sobering analysis:

The death of a terrorist-supporting tyrant cannot be bad news, if indeed Qaddafi’s death is confirmed. If he has died in a military action, it might have been the best end for which either side could hope. Qaddafi will end up being remembered by his small cadre of supporters not as a Saddam Hussein, diminished in captivity and finally humiliated on the gallows by the people he oppressed, but as someone who at least fought to the end. The new government doesn’t have to worry about holding Qaddafi and putting him on trial with the world watching, with the risk of him becoming a symbol of opposition that undermines their attempts to unite the country.

But unite the country into what, exactly? It still remains to see whether Libya has indeed been “liberated” and will now pursue the path of a liberal, pluralistic democracy — or whether the Libyans will follow the path of Egypt and a military/Islamist regime. At least the Libyans have an opportunity to make that choice for themselves now that the tyrant has been defeated and removed from the equation.

Which has been the concern of the right, with this whole thing in Libya and this whole Arab spring concept in the first place; it is not that we on the right dislike freedom, it is the fact that some of us are worried that the United States might actually be funding and supporting an Israeli nightmare. Besides all that, the best we will get out of this, is an plutocratic Government with another front man. The idea that we will have a Republican or even a free democracy in Libya is a pipe dream.

The very idea that Libya will ever be a free country, with a religion, such as Islam, is a myth.

Update: Cross-posted @ Alexandria

No, I did not watch the debate last night.

Like AllahPundit, I find these Republican Party fashion shows to be quite the bore.  I guess it is the bickering, the finger pointing and the general stupidity that turns me off.

However, I will say this; and as much as I hate linking to this blog, because of it’s douche-bag owner. I saw the following this morning and I literally laughed out loud…:

RICK SANTORUM: I am Catholic. And Angry! I am an Angry Catholic Conservative! RAWR!

If that does not nail Rick Santorum to a peg, I do not know what does.  :D Although I must say, I never saw it as “anger,” but more of this idiotic bandying around his Catholic Faith.  Between him and Romney’s whack job Mormonism, I fear for what this Country could become.  If either of these two is picked for the nominee, I will be voting Libertarian Party again.  I will repeat, what is on my About Me page and, I think, is on my About This Blog Page; and that is that my loyalty is not to the Republican Party —- but rather to principles.  If I feel that the Republican Party is going to pick a big Government establishment Conservative, as George W. Bush was, I will vote Libertarian Party.

Some of you might be asking, “If you’re a Christian and a Fundamental Baptist, who do you dislike someone who is running as a Christian Conservative?”  To this, I answer the following: My issues with Roman Catholicism aside —- While I think that it is great that there is a President candidate, who is a Christian and is not afraid to represent that, I just feel that Religion should not be the core or center issue in an election.  This Nation is facing some serious issues, related to fiscal matters, not social; social Conservatism is a battle that the Republicans and the Conservative Christian community fought — and ultimately lost — back in the 1980’s.  The Republican Party does not need to fight that battle again.  I am very sorry to say this, but as much as I am a Christian and a defender of those beliefs.  I do not believe that it is the right of anyone, to force his or her religious beliefs on anyone at all A logical fallacy drove the Christian Conservative movement of “God and Country” in the 1980’s and essentially, it was a dismal flop.  This is because the philosophy of Senator Barry Goldwater was correct; which said you could not legislate morality.

This is why I tend to separate myself from the extreme religious right in this Country.  This is what people like Ed Brayton tend to misunderstand about me.  I am not an extremist at all.  Just because I happen to think that Islamo-facism is a bit a problem and I happen to defend American values, does not make me someone who is alignment who is agreement with the far religious right, who believes in Christian domination.  I just do not believe that any belief should be dominated over any other.  I believe that ALL faiths should be able to practice their faiths in peace, without fear of persecution from Government or other rival faiths.  I also happen to believe that if someone decides that he or she wishes to refrain from subscribing to that faith, that he or she has the right to be left alone as well.

This, my friends, is the true definition of freedom.

Oh, Yeah Sure! — Black students accuse white teacher of abuse

First off, here is the video:

View more videos at: http://nbcwashington.com.

The story via NBC Washington:

A trial is set to begin Monday for a Montgomery County teacher, accused of punching and choking several of her first grade students.

Susan Burke, 36, was arrested in February, after nine of her first grade students at Greencastle Elementary School claimed they were abused. According to investigators, Burke allegedly choked, kicked, punched and scratched children in her class.

Montgomery County police learned of one incident on Jan. 7, when a Greencastle Elementary School student complained of being physically assaulted on several occasions.

Police interviewed all of the students in Burke’s class, and their investigation revealed eight more victims, all ages 6 or 7, police said. In addition to being choked, some students also reported being kicked, punched, scratched or squeezed on the arms, police said. Additional students reported witnessing the attacks, police said.

Burke was also charged in an alleged March 2010 assault of a student as a result of this investigation, police said. The incidents allegedly took place on school property and during school hours.

I hate to be the one to do this; but something about this story smells fishy. For one, nowhere in that report does it say that any of the children came home with bruises or anything of the sort on them. For all we know, these black kids decided that they did not like their teacher and decided to tell their parents that the teacher was hurting them. Believe me when I tell you; I know kids can be, and it is a common thing nowadays, for students to level false accusations against a teacher, if they do not like them.

In fact, locally here, in one of the public schools in one of the cites around here — a teacher, who had been with the school system for over 30 years, was accused of rape. The student was a Latino girl, who did not like the fact that she was getting too much homework from this teacher. So, she devised a plan. She was a minority, she was a girl and she was going do this teacher in. She accused him of rape. Well, he was suspended and there was an investigation, that lasted for over 2 years. Finally, the teacher was cleared of the charges and the girl put on trial for making such a big false accusation like that. During the trial, when asked about why she would do such a thing, her reply was, “Revenge.” She went on to say that because she was a Latino and a female, she figured they would just convict him and remove him from the school.

I am quite happy to report that the man accused, ended up not only suing the school; but also the girl’s family, the school district, and also La Raza, who was providing the attorney pro-Bono and boasted to the media that they would “bring down this oppressive white man.” The defendants tried to get the man to settle for a very small amount and basically, he laughed in their faces and rejected the settlement; he went on to win the case for millions. He promptly sold his house and left the State. He now lives very well, I am told.

The point I am making is this; why are these school officials just believing what these silly kids are saying? Why? Because they are black and she is white? I also got a kick out of how the woman was made out to be the evil oppressive white woman, who was picking on those poor little innocent black children! (yes, that is sarcasm…)

If the truth be known in this case; these kids were most likely a bunch of spoiled brats and most likely made this woman’s life a living hell and they most likely deserved the little smacks that they got from this woman. But, because we live in society that treats white on black “Crime” differently than actual black on white crime. This woman will most likely lose her career; because a group of minority students decided that they did not like Mrs. “Whitey Teacher” no more and with the help of Mommy and Daddy, figured out a way to get rid of her, for good.

It happens every day in America.

This is why I do not support the #OccupyWallStreet protests

Because of this ignorant stupidity right here:

A growing number of Israelis and foreign Jewish groups are expressing concern over the anti-Semitic flavor of some of the “Occupy Wall St.” economic protests in the US.

From the 13th century expulsion of Englands Jews to the 19th century Russian pogroms to the Nazi Holocaust, sour economic conditions have historically formed the backdrop of rising anti-Semitism.

Last week, we reported on a lone protestor at the Wall Street sit-in who insisted that America’s economic woes could all be traced back to “the Jews.”

Since then that message has been picked up by others at “Occupy Wall St.” demontrations around the country.

In Los Angeles, California, protestor Patricia McAllister, who identified herself as an employee of the Los Angeles Unified School District (we can only hope she is not an educator), had this to say:

“I think that the Zionist Jews, who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve, which is not run by the federal government… they need to be run out of this country.”

On the American Nazi Party website, leader Rocky Suhayda voiced support for “Occupy Wall St.” and asked, “Who hold the wealth and power in this country? The Judeo-Capitalists. Who is therefore the #1 enemy who makes this filth happen? The Judeo-Capitalists.”

via israel today | Israelis worried by anti-Semitic flavor of ‘Occupy Wall St.’ protests – israel today.

I will readily admit to not being a supporter of Wilsonian foreign policy.  However, as I have written on this blog before, that disliking of Wilsonian foreign policy has never equated to hatred of Jews or of Israel.  Furthermore, this idiotic practice of making a scapegoat out of the Jews, for the problems that America faces right now, is very repugnant.

What these communists ought to be protesting is the headquarters of the Democratic Party; that is because the Democrats are the people, who in 1973, passed the Community Reinvestment Act, which forced banks to give loans to people, that under normal circumstances, would not be qualified for it.  It was the Democrats, who in 1994 added the subprime clause to the community reinvestment act of 1973.  It was at the passing of that subprime clause that President Clinton’s housing director threatened to sue Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack, if they did not come up with these loans to those who normally would not qualify for them.

This was the gaming of the housing market, during a time of prosperity in America that caused one of the biggest stock market crashes and the largest downturn in the economy.  It is true that during the Bush Administration that some needed regulation of the housing market and of the stock market was removed.  However, that was not the root cause of the great crash of 2008; it was the Democrats gaming of the housing market; combined with already unstable economy after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that caused the economic downturn in America.

Nevertheless, these leftist buffoons want to scapegoat a minority of people, who are the chosen ones of the Almighty God, for the sin of daring to come to America and for being successful in business.  This here is one of the many reasons why I have moved away from the so-called “Paleo-Conservative” political position — not because I am warmonger, but because I find this sort of hatred to be most offensive.  I would no more blame the Jews for the downfall of the economic downfall in this Country than I would blame of the black race for the moral decline in this Country.  Both of those sorts of mindsets are rooted in bigotry and ignorance.  Neither of which I want to be associated with at all.

The cold, hard truth is this; the nation economic troubles are due to idiotic progressive polices that were planned out in the short term, without thought of what could happen in the long term.  The moral decline in this Country is due to this Nation’s forgetting about the Almighty God and his Son Jesus Christ; and the leaving out of his Word in the family home.  Protestant Christianity, and not Islam or any other perversion of the Christian faith — was the founding bedrock of this fine Nation of ours.  This Nation’s abdication of that Christian Faith, in lieu of self-serving carnality is why this Nation’s morals are on the skids.

Anyone who says or believes otherwise is a simple-minded buffoon.

Should Conservative Governors swear off Corporatism?

Alex Cortes makes a good case for it.

While most of the Republican presidential candidates have criticized President Obama about his waste of taxpayer money on the politically connected and now bankrupt energy company Solyndra, Rick Perry has remained silent. Why? Perhaps because he may soon have his very own Solyndra.

As governor, Perry created the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, which has doled out, at his discretion, nearly $200 million to 133 businesses. More than $16 million from the fund has gone to firms with officers or investors who were major Perry contributors.

One such firm is Convergen, which has developed a lung-cancer treatment that is under Phase II clinical trial. The company was successful in getting Texas taxpayers to put up $4.5 million through Perry’s fund, despite founder David Nance’s investing a measly $1,000. Did Nance’s $335,000 to Perry’s campaigns, association fundraisers, and TexasOne Foundation have anything to do with it?

It likely did, given that Convergen’s proposal failed the regional review process meant to extricate political influence — and was later approved by a state advisory panel that Nance formerly sat on. The amount awarded also happened to be highest amount ever from the fund. Perry and his team know that Convergen may soon look a lot like Solyndra, since only 33 percent of successful Phase II drugs make it to the market.

But this is not an assault on Governor Perry in particular: He is far from alone among his Republican gubernatorial colleagues in advancing corporatist policies.

For example, Virginia governor Bob McDonnell, who’s been mentioned as a potential vice presidential running mate for Perry, has also fallen to corporatism in a variety of ways. McDonnell succeeded in getting his state’s general assembly to increase funding for the Governor’s Opportunity Fund, a $54 million pot from which he can give grants to corporations that create jobs in the commonwealth. He has also created special tax incentives for the wine and film industries and provided the International Speedway Corporation a $1.5 million grant to keep one of its NASCAR races in the state.

via Conservatives and Corporatism – Alex Cortes – National Review Online.

I see his point; the Republicans and Conservatives are going ballyhoo Obama for his green energy debacle, they should be prepared to answer for some of their own misdeeds. Contrary to what some of the Bloggers on the right like to print, corruption and political favors are common on both sides. This needs to end, the era of backroom deals and favors, in this day of so-called transparency needs to end.

In other words; if we are going to point the accusing finger at the other side, we should clean the trash up in our own backyards.

 

Gay extremists throw bricks through Church windows

This is sickening….

Via WorldNetDaily:

In the early morning hours, on the eve of a banquet designed to expose the homosexual activist agenda, security cameras on the campus of the Christian Liberty Academy, a school run by the Church of Christian Liberty in Arlington Heights, Ill., captured what may be a prominent example of an anti-Christian “hate crime.”

An unknown vandal or vandals threw chunks of concrete bricks through the school’s entryway with a message protesting the banquet, which was planned by Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, or AFTAH, to honor pro-family activist and author of “The Pink Swastika,” Dr. Scott Lively.

Upon the concrete bricks were written the words “Shut down Lively,” and the vandals included a note theatening more violence if the church and school didn’t stop hosting such “homophobic” guests.

“This is just a sample of what we will do if you don’t shut down Scott Lively and AFTAH,” the note reads. “F— Scott Lively. Quit the homophobic s—!”

The radical ‘gay’ movement is not amused by ‘The Pink Swastika’. Thoroughly researched exposé reveals the role of sadistic homosexuals in Naziism

Hours later, a “press release” was sent by email to AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera, Church of Christian Liberty Pastor Calvin Lindstrom and the Chicago Independent Media Center claiming responsibility for the attack.

“In the early morning hours of October 15th, we put two chunks of concrete through the glass windows and doors of the Christian Liberty Academy,” claims the author of the release, identifying himself only by a vulgar nickname. “We did this because at 6 p.m. today they will be hosting an event organized by the homophobic hate group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, that [sic] will be presenting an award to Scott Lively.”

The statement continues, “These chunks of concrete were thrown through these windows and doors for two reasons: to show that there is a consequence for hatred and homophobia in our community and to directly cause this event to be shut down. If this event is not shut down, and the homophobic day trainings do not end, the Christian Liberty Academy will continue to be under constant attack.”

I very highly recommend this book:

Statement on the President’s decision to send troops to Uganda

Despite what Rush Limbaugh and what Max Fisher over at the Atlantic might be saying; the President is right to be sending troops in this region.  I will explain what I mean.  The Lord’s Resistance Army is not a group of Christian missionaries or anything of that sort; it is a group of terrorists, who maim and kill — all the while hiding behind some sort of perverted pseudo-Christian doctrine.

I realize that the Conservative Blogosphere’s goal is to discredit this President and everything that he does.  However, in this case, the President, in fact, is taking the correct steps in stopping this crazed group of thugs from hurting any more people than they already have.  It was the right thing to do and we as Conservatives, who believe that no one should have to suffer at the hands of crazed tyrants, should be supporting the President’s action in this case.

I also understand that this group has been fighting against Muslims in the area, while I do not agree with the tenants of the Muslim faith.  I do not believe that the methods being used by the group are legal, sane, or even moral.  Furthermore, I believe the slaughter of innocent people, including the elderly is very an immoral act to commit.

I also realize that there are some, who are Conservative, might feel that the President is engaging in too many conflicts.  Let me say this, this is not an engagement for the protection of empire; this is an engagement for the cause of morality.  For many years, the United States of America has been the beacon of Democracy and for Christian morality throughout the entire World.  What this group is doing to the people of that region is vile and immoral; in the case, I believe it is the United States of America’s responsibility to the insure that innocent people are no harmed any longer.

In closing: While this blog and its owner might disagree with the President’s domestic policy, I do wholeheartedly agree with the President’s decision to put a stop to the treachery that is taking place in this Country and to its people.  I commend the President for stepping up to the plate and insuring the protection of the citizens of Uganda.  It is my fervent hope and prayer, that the Lord’s Resistance Army is stopped from inflecting any more violence on innocent people.

Video: Does Mitt Romney believe that he is literally going to become a god?

It is a question that all Conservative, Republican and Tea Party voters need to know.

The Video of the Interview:

The Story via WorldNetDaily.com:

The daughter of a Mormon bishop who has abandoned her family’s faith claims in a new book the election of Mitt Romney to the presidency would put the U.S. in danger due to what she calls the Republican’s “outrageous,” “horrific” and “mind-controlling” beliefs.

“While he attempts to portray Mormonism as just another Christian religion, Mitt Romney counts on his skills to shift our attention away from what he truly believes,” says Tricia Erickson, author of “Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters? The Mormon Church Versus the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America.”

“If the American people knew what he truly believed, they would surely not place him in the highest office in the land.”

Yet others, such as professor Richard Bushman, a Mormon and previous missionary himself who has taught at Harvard, Columbia and Brown Universities, are defending the faith. He calls Erickson “disillusioned” and someone who “instead of walking away felt an obligation to discredit [her] former faith.”

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the official name for Mormonism, has rocketed into the national consciousness this month since Rev. Robert Jeffress, a Rick Perry supporter who pastors the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, said Romney was “not a Christian” and that Mormonism is a “cult.”

“Part of a pastor’s job is to warn his people and others about false religions,” Jeffress said Sunday, standing by his controversial remarks. “Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Mormonism are all false religions.”

In her book, Erickson paints an unflattering picture of the Mormon faith, which counts not only the former Massachusetts governor as a member, but also fellow GOP presidential contender Jon Huntsman, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., radio talk-show host Glenn Beck, singer Gladys Knight, actresses Amy Adams and Katherine Heigl, “Napoleon Dynamite” actor Jon Heder, entertainers Donny and Marie Osmond, and sports stars including the NFL’s Steve Young, Danny White and Merlin Olsen.

Erickson goes on to expose the insane beliefs of the Mormons and tell about her horrifying experience in that cult:

Erickson says Romney believes:

He will become a “god” in the afterlife and be given his own planet

Satan is Jesus’ literal brother

Jesus was not born of a virgin birth

He will be given his own afterlife kingdom where he will have sexual relations with his wife, Ann, to populate his kingdom with spirit children as God the Father Himself has a wife on His own planet.

“Mormonism teaches we pre-existed on God the Father’s planet as spirit children before we were planted in our mother’s wombs,” Erickson told WND. “And the reason why we’re here according to Mormonism, is so that we can work out our own progression to godhood and our own planets themselves.”

The author, who herself was married in a Mormon temple at age 19 but now considers herself a non-denominational Christian, says there’s a secret agenda Mormon officials don’t like to talk about publicly.

“A complete takeover of the government,” she said. “They have more people in the CIA, the FBI. They have an employment office for Mormons in D.C. to be able to infiltrate them into the government.”

“They’ve been trying since the beginning to get someone in the presidency, because they believe they have to establish their authority so when Jesus comes to Earth, the Mormon Church will take control of the government and the Mormons will be the government of God on Earth,” she continued.

Erickson says her main concern is that the leader of the free world have the ability to discern fact from fiction.

“It may be crucial to our survival,” she said. “If his beliefs are distorted, which they unequivocally are, why would it not be be critical to our existence to protect our country from being placed in the hands of such a person?”

When asked for specific rituals she considers bizarre, Erickson claims Romney and other Mormons take part in clandestine marriage ceremonies involving “outrageous” customs. Explaining her own Mormon wedding, she says she was forced to completely disrobe against her will.

“It was horrific,” she told WND. “There I was standing naked. They brought this bowl of water, and started washing my body down and whispering prayers over my body. They stopped over the right and left breast, the navel and knees and prayed specific prayers.”

To help ensure the general public did not learn details of the rituals, she says believers took a symbolic knife to feign their own murder if members spilled the beans of what really goes on behind closed doors.

“They actually had us slashing our guts open and our guts falling to the ground if we told people of the secret dogma of the ceremonies,” Erickson said.

“Mitt is not a casual Mormon,” she told online interviewer Thom Hartmann, noting Romney has reached the upper echelons of the faith. “There is no way that he will be able to not listen to the [Mormon] prophet. His eternal salvation depends on it. He has to put the church first over country.”

Here is a video that also shows what Mormon’s truly believe:

As much as I would like to say that this is the first time that I have heard this; it is not, this young lady is not the only person to have told stories like this about the Mormon Cult. Another well-known author, speaker and former Mormon, Ed Decker has exposed the Mormon cult for what it truly is.

Here is Ed Decker’s testimony of how he came out of the Mormon Cult:

Here is another very, very, interesting radio program with Ed Decker. It is about the Free Masons and the founding of America. The Free Masons and the Mormon Church are joined at the hip. Please listen to this, you will find it very interesting. The show is from the early 1990’s, I believe anyhow. The show and the ministry which Ed appeared on went bankrupt in the 1990’s and went off the air. Ironically, the host’s wife died of cancer; she was diagnosed, not long after this show was broadcast.

The next book that I very highly recommend, is actually a comic book. It is a part of the “Crusader’s” series of Comic by a man, who I have much respect for; his name is Jack Chick:

Here is the comic that I recommend that ALL Republicans, Conservatives and Tea Party people read:

I also recommend that all Christians, Republicans, Conservatives, and Tea Party folk read this pamphlet here.

I also recommend you buy the Book of the person referenced above:

I also recommend the following books on the subject too:

Republicans need to know the truth; this is the way to it.

Thanks for reading.

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. (Psalms 116:15 KJV)

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:55-57 KJV)

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:6-8 KJV)

A little musical tribute to this woman:

Terror plot directly linked to Iran uncovered by the U.S. Government

This does not look good at all. :(

FBI and DEA agents have disrupted a plot to commit a “significant terrorist act in the United States” tied to Iran, federal officials told ABC News today.

The officials said the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, with a bomb and subsequent bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. Bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed, according to the U.S. officials.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in an announcement today that the plan was “conceived, sponsored and was directed from Iran” by a faction of the government and called it a “flagrant” violation of U.S. and international law.

“The U.S. is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions,” Holder said. He said the White House will be meeting with federal agencies before announcing “further action” in regards to Iran.

FBI Director Robert Mueller said the arrest of a suspect in the plot shows the U.S. will “bring the full weight of [the] law to bear on those responsible” and that “any attempts on American soil will not be tolerated.”

The stunning allegations come against a backdrop of longstanding tensions between Iran and the United States and Saudi Arabia. In the last year, Saudi Arabia has attempted to build an anti-Iran alliance to push back against perceived aggression by Iran in the region.

via U.S. Says Iran-Tied Terror Plot in Washington, D.C. Disrupted – ABC News.

This basically proves my point; that Bush did not do enough after 9/11. If Bush had acted like a real President and not like a wet rag after 9/11, we would not have this sort of troubles. Although, I will admit; I have sneaky feeling that this might spark some sort of Military action. Although, I do not believe it will be of the scale and scope of the War in Iraq.

Ed Morrissey, of whom I respect, says this:

If true, would that not be an act of war?  We’re presently using drones in Pakistan and Yemen against al-Qaeda terrorist networks for plotting similar attacks, thanks to the AUMF from October 2001, even though we’re nominally allied with both nations.  If the government of Iran plotted attacks on American targets, that should require a response from the US, should it not — or do we send a signal that even attacks from actual nation-states fall under the rubric of law enforcement?

[...]

If we’re charging an official of the Iranian government with complicity or worse in this plot, then it ceases to be a law enforcement issue and becomes a military and political issue instead.  This isn’t a case of espionage but of sabotage or worse, which would be an act of war by anyone’s definition.  If we’re not willing to respond in kind, we then send a signal to hostile nation-states around the world that attacks on the US are low-risk, high-reward affairs — and we’d better get ready for an avalanche of them.

There are some who would say, “Oh, he is just being a Neoconservative!” That might be so, but he is being a Neoconservative, who happens to be right. Ron Paul and ilk are just dead wrong. when it comes to Iran, Islam and the war on terror. They might have a point on Nation Building; but on this sort of thing, Ron Paul and his mindless followers are simply wrong.
