PALIN, O’DONNELL, & THE END OF THE DEMOCRATIC & REPUBLICAN PARTIES AS WE’VE KNOWN THEM

Here are the statistics.  According to Investors.com Palin’s endorsement record is impressive. Of the 36 candidates facing contested primaries that she has endorsed, 25 have won. That’s a win ratio of just under 70%. Opps, looks like the grass roots Tea Party movement is the real deal!

Gov. Sarah Palin in Dover, NH Sarah Palin, the tough, astute, savvy politician that the MSM and their Democratic/Progressive  pals are fond of mocking and portraying as a dullard is whipping the pants off the Washington establishment.

Portraying Palin, the Tea Party, and conservatives of every persuasion as racists (that one’s getting old isn’t it?) spoilers, angry, and demented has come with a price … defeat at the ballot box!  Yes!

It has been grand fun listening to the pundits on MSNBC and CNN, and the likes of Bill Maher and the hideous Michael (can I squeeze another cheeseburger into my mouth) Moore continue to rant and wring their hands as they get the Tea Party movement wrong! They still don’t get it!  I’m guessing that’s because they have no concept of what it means to act on principle and hold adherence to the law as an American ideal.

They continue to rant:

that the Tea Party is leaderless and will never impact the country (leaderless in vague sort of way, yes, but the TP impact is transformative).  The flip side of that coin is that Sarah Palin (and Rush, and Shawn, and Glenn)  all lead the Tea Party (definitely wrong) and are in bed with the GOP (wrong, again as the O’Donnell win in Delaware demonstrates).  The TP hates Obama (wrong, his policies not the man).  Those in the multitude of Tea Party organizations across the country don’t understand the Constitution (Really?), they are afraid of Mexicans (no, we just want our laws enforced and our borders protected).

And, we must not forget the standard delegitimizations;  Palin, conservatives, Tea Party members, and all those who oppose Obamacare, TARP, and the radical agenda of the Democratic Progressives are white, uneducated, gun loving, frightened, confused, and myopic … incapable of seeing the greatness of Socialism and the New World Order.

The real shock though has come from Karl Rove and the other sore losers in the establishment GOP in Delaware, Alaska, and elsewhere in the country.  Christine O’Donnell won in Delaware because her opponent voted for TARP and increasing the deficit, Cap ‘n Trade, and would not support the repeal of Obamacare.   O’Donnell’s opponent, Mike Castle, was worse than a RINO (Republican in Name Only)!

And it gets better.  Harry Reid recently called Chris Coons avowed Marxist and O’Donnell’s opponent in November, his pet! God, gag me with a spoon! (Where is that barf bag?)

What does all of this mean?  Well, here’s a heads up for those currently in power  (Republicans and Democrats alike) who continue to disregard the obvious.

The American people have found their voice.  Our expressed wishes for the direction of the country will no longer be diminished, disrespected, and ignored.  In the very same way the MSM and the liberals and Progressives on cable have made themselves and their companies irrelevant, so too are the two controlling political parties in the country racing to make themselves irrelevant.  Christine O’Donnell’s win wasn’t a fluke … her win is the future!

Now, the question is will the former power brokers in the Democratic and Republican parties  go the way of the horse and buggy!




D.L. HUGHLEY, DR. LAURA, & THE N-WORD QUOTA

Let me state up front, I love D.L. Hughley … always have.  He’s genuinely funny.

He can also be raw (close your ears if you can’t take the MF-word).  Most of all he’s authentic, and I believe this is a man with a good heart.

He was one of the few people during the Imus debacle a couple of years ago who was honest about what had happened.

When the country got caught up in its faux outrage because Imus uttered  senseless, unkind, gratuitous comments about the women’s basketball team from Rutger’s at 6:30 one morning, D.L. was there, essentially saying, “It was a joke!  Can’t you all grow up?”

This video is a response to those who wanted him to apologize about the his Rutger’s joke on the Jay Leno show.  What does this have to do with Dr. Laura.  Everything!

I’m in agreement with D.L. People seem to be most upset because Dr. Laura used the word 11 times, as if there’s a quota.  Again, I’m in agreement with D.L.  Free speech has a zero sum quotient.  Period!  You believe in it or you don’t.  “Ya, buts” aren’t allowed.  Don’t know what a “ya but” is?  “Ya, I meant it here, but I didn’t mean it there!”

The unintended consequences of PC babble or hyphenated dope speech are profound.  Using hyphenated non words to replace a word that offends some people, gives the offending word more power.

Instead of erasing the offending word from our consciousness using the silly ass substitution implants it.  Why?  Because stopping to replace an offending word with a hyphenated non word takes extra time … and thought … ensuring the offending word never goes away!

Using hyphenated non words is akin to carrying around the skeleton/dead carcass of an animal for 100′s of years …  always dragging that sucker behind.  Why?

To show the horror of a particular act or circumstance?  Or perhaps to use as a tool … a tool to show how you became a victim of something that never personally happened to you.  Ya, that’s it!  My, what a good tool to have on one’s arsenal of why I am where I am in life.  We all know how victim card must go hand and hand with the racism card … right?

Evil is as evil does.  Prohibiting free speech,  even ugly hateful speech in a free society is evil.  There are no “ya, buts” about it!

PROGRESSIVES, RACISM & SLAVERY


You may have seen him on CNN or FOX News.  I wouldn’t hold my breathe waiting for Chris “Tingles” Matthews to book him on Hardball!

Pastor C.L. Bryant is from Shreveport, LA.  A one time radical & true believer of  the liberal/progressive agenda, he now speaks out  boldly as a pro-life advocate.

In my book he is a hero. He’s a Tea Party member and proud of it.  Pastor Bryant is also a non-hyphenated American.

He is a passionate defender of freedom and liberty as  espoused by the Founding Fathers. He hosts his own Internet radio show called Hot Tea.

His latest project is a documentary entitled Runaway Slave.  It is slated for release sometime in 2011.

The documentary promises to be an honest discussion of black conservatives in America.  Will Runaway Slave ruffle the feathers of those still on the “plantation” as Bryant likes to call it?

Probably … and that is a very good thing.  This country needs an honest discussion of how the Progressives/Democratic party policies have lead to an updated form of slavery.

As Pastor Bryant whispers on the video, “gotta find ways to keep those *iggers in place!”

MUSLIMS LEAVING ISLAM FOR CHRISTIANITY

We can categorize this under another story the MSM didn’t report. Don’t expect to hear about this on MSNBC or CNN, CBS, etc. You know the list already.

Why? As the Daily Caller has detailed, Journolisters and their supporters knowingly tip toe around the Poseur Obama’s real religion or anything that reflects poorly on him. Can you say Reverend Wright?

Yes, Obama’s a Muslim and has admitted to it. Want more? Look here.

I stumbled across this quite by accident. The facts below are from a story going back to 2006. The I investigated the more I found that the conversion of Muslims is quietly taking place on a world wide basis … in Africa, China, Turkey, Egypt, and other counties in the middle east.

Conversion can be a deadly decision for Muslims as these videos here and here demonstrate. These new converts are brave and they remind me of the early Christians in Rome who prayed together (many times in secret) in homes, not allowed to build their own church or house of prayer.

Did you know there is a site called muslims4jesus? There is also a Muslims4Jesus YouTube channel here.

These facts were found on the forum Islam Watch, and appear to substantiate the claims that Muslims are leaving Islam for Christianity.

According to the post, there are more Muslims leaving Islam than there are new converts coming into Islam.

2 million ethnic Muslims converted to Christianity in Russia.
In Africa, 6 million muslims
convert to Christianity every year. English Translation here.
“In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity. These numbers are very large indeed”.
200,000 UK Muslims
Left Islam.
Mullahs and Imams leave Islam
and enter Christianity.
50,000 Muslim Teenagers Murtads in Malaysia
.
Thousands of Kashmiri Muslims
leave Islam !
Thousands of Bangladeshi, North African, Kashmiri, Indian Muslims, Central Asian Muslims leave Islam.
10,000 french muslims
converted to Christianity.
Some 35,000 Turks converted from Islam to Christianity last year.

In West, Islam is growing mainly by immigration, and the high birth rate of Muslims. Yes, some gullible people are converting to Islam out of great ignorance. But, that is very very small fraction, almost negligible. Good people who think freely can not maintain peace of heart and mind in Islam. They leave Islam immediately. That’s why in US, more than 75% of new converts leave Islam in just a few years.

TWO VIEWS OF BLACK AMERICA … ONE FILLED WITH HOPE ONE FILLED WITH HATE

I was going to write about something entirely different this morning when I ran across this video about the New Black Panthers from Bob Parks, the writer of Black & Right.

Faces of Hope & Love

After watching the NBP video and several others of the same ilk, I felt terribly sad for all those whose lack of insight and maturity lead them to such self inflicted poison and hatred. Hate is heavy baggage.

Happenstance  brought me to another video and post over at Afro Spear. The views expressed here came at the right moment.

They lifted me, as I hope they will lift you!  Hope heals and hate betrays … we all get to choose which one will fill our lives.

Let’s look at HOPE.

“For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” James 2:26

Once a week I volunteer at an inner city mission. Interestingly, even though I had volunteered sporadically before with different organizations and missions, it was after reading Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life”, that I made a conscious decision to commit to volunteer on a consistent basis. I came to realize clearly from his teaching that we are created by God with a ministry and a mission to fulfill. Our ministry is what we do in our service for the “Church” and our mission is what we do in our service for the “World”. Both are important. Both influences and strengthens each other. To have the maximum impact as a child of God on those we come in contact with, we have to be committed to being consistent in our ministry and mission.

[...]

This attitude is the reason why our community at large and humanity in general, haven’t progressed further than it has in regards to the common good. Too many of us are looking and waiting for the next Martin (or Malcolm), instead of taking up our own cross and working to fulfill our own mission. Too many of us would rather answer like Cain: “Am I my brother’s keeper?”, than take the responsibility to “really work for something powerful and special and good” in the service for others. The life work of Martin Luther King is inspirational and influential, however I am inspired and influenced by the ONE who inspired and influenced Rev. King: Jesus Christ. He’s the source. His example isn’t one who went to church (synagogue at the time) 4-6 days a week to prove his faith, nor sit in a room and write a treatise (or blog) on the importance of his beliefs. Jesus got involved and served the poor and oppressed… their physical and more importantly, their spiritual needs.

Heart

One other thought  … I’ve been going through some tough times of late, wondering what life is really all about …  questioning why any of us are here.

The writer of this post helped remind me that we all have the capacity to love, to find wonder, to give of ourselves.  Knowing that others share many of the same life questions helps make our journey less daunting while we are here.

By the way, here’s the other video … now go rock for Jesus!




A Legal Immigrant & Naturalized Citizen Defends Arizona’s New Law

Her name is Gabriella.  She is a brave naturalized citizen originally born south of the border.

Her’s is a voice the MSM would never consider putting on air to express the views of 70% of the country which support Arizona’s new law on illegal immigrants.

Why put on a voice that disagrees with their narrative?  After all, we now know that the MSM only presents news they think we should hear!

Listen to Gabriella, a new citizen we can be proud to call a Sister Patriot!


WHY THE SUDDEN PUSH FOR PUERTO RICO STATEHOOD, WHY IN SECRET, AND WHY NOW?

This is another hugely important story that the MSM has ignored. If it hadn’t been for Glenn Beck’s show two days ago no one would have been aware of the stealth move to force Puerto Rico in statehood.


I don’t know about you, but it seems pretty damn important if Congress is considering the addition of a 51st state. According to Beck’s show Puerto Rico has voted 3 times on whether they wanted to become part of the United States and 3 times the answer was no.  But that hasn’t derailed those folks in Congress.  After all, they don’t listen to us, why would anyone think they would acknowledge the desires of the Puerto Ricans?  Can anyone spell “healthcare?”

Puerto Ricans  are proud people that think of themselves at Latin Americans and not North American Anglos.  Is it any wonder they have declined our “invitation” into statehood?

There are two very important articles to read about the latest slight of hand the first if  from Hot Air.

House to vote on Puerto Rico statehood bill tomorrow

posted  by Allahpundit

Beck was talking about this today so people are e-mailing us about it now. I should be clear: The vote isn’t on whether to make Puerto Rico a state, it’s whether to “authorize” the Puerto Rican government to hold a popular referendum on whether it should become a state. From what I understand, though, Puerto Ricans don’t need any authorization from Congress to hold a plebiscite; they can do it any time they want. The fact that the House is nudging them — and the way that they’re nudging them — is what’s got people’s antennae up. With good reason, says the Heritage Foundation:

The second is from The Hill.

Why the rush on the Puerto Rico statehood bill? (Rep. Luis Gutierrez)

This statehood bill is the opposite of self-determination.

It is designed to craft an artificial majority for statehood where none exists now. Every time the people of Puerto Rico have been consulted on this issue through a plebiscite they’ve said NO to Statehood. NO to Statehood in 1967. NO to Statehood in 1993. NO to Statehood in 1998. This should be called the “Don’t you dare say NO to Statehood Bill”.

Why is it that the when the people of the District of Columbia repeatedly and overwhelmingly ask for Statehood, Congress ignores them, and when the people of Puerto Rico, who have never asked for statehood and who have actually said ‘no’ to statehood three times get this statehood bill pushed on them in a rush…with little or no debate?

CNN’S ANDERSON COOPER & ROLAND MARTIN TRY TO DISCREDIT “BIRTHERS” END UP LOOKING LIKE DUMB & DUMBER!

I never watch CNN and more.  Why bother, the network is sooo predictable?

Well, I woke up at 2:00 am this morning and found myself watching Anderson (love those tea baggers, smirk, smirk) Cooper try to discredit Arizona State representative Ash because of his vote to require a birth certificate of all presidential candidates in his state.

Cooper’s performance was slightly manic when trying to discredit anyone who has asked why Obama cannot demonstrate his citizenship at the time he was born.

Actually, Cooper’s repetitive points were, “Obama’s a citizen and anyone that questions that is nuts“.  My favorite Cooper quip was. ” some people think the moon is made out of cheese and that doesn’t mean they are correct.”  Anderson keep your day job, you won’t make it as a comedian.

Here’s what you didn’t hear Cooper discuss:

  1. The fact that Obama was born of a British father and an American mother too young to confer her citizenship to her son.  That means that on the day Obama was born the best case scenario for his citizenship status was dual citizen.  In fact, he was born a British citizen … either way he is disqualified from being POTUS because a Natural Born Citizen can only be born of two American citizens and on US soil or on a US territory.
  2. Obama may be a naturalized citizen today (more than likely he is still an Indonesian) but that is quite immaterial Born in Hawaii or born in Kenya, his British father’s citizenship disqualifies him!
  3. The fact that the Secretary of State in New Jersey allowed a man with an immigrant with a green card to run for President on the same ballot with Obama and McCain.  Had she verified Obama, McCain, and Roger Calero met the standards to run for office, including being a Natural Born Citizen, not one of these men’s names would have appeared.

My favorite is Roland Martin, who a mere 10 minutes after Cooper’s exchange with Ash, called Birthers stupid … a class guy that Martin.  Apparently, he’s upset because some people think Obama is a Mooslum.  Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve thought a lot of things about Obama.  Not once did I think  he might be a Mooslum!


ATTORNEY GENERAL KEN CUCCINELLIA SHOULDN’T BACK AWAY FROM OBAMA ELIGIBILITY QUESTIONS

The question is simple, one I have repeatedly asked since August of 2008.

Where in the Constitution does it state that a person who is born a dual citizen at the time of birth is allowed to run for the office of President of the United States?

Answer. Nowhere.

Dual citizens are not allowed to hold the highest office in the land.  The truth is that Obama has never been eligible to be POTUS.

He knows that, the MSM (including FOX) knows that, and so too a lengthy list of attorneys, talking heads, and legal scholars (Tobin, Turley, Dean et al) who wrap themselves in the Constitution when it suits their purposes.  Obama suited their purposes.   This group (which included Bill and Hillary haters) kicked the Constitution to the curb so they could move forward with their progressive agenda for changing America.

While questions revolving around his birthplace continue to swirl, it is his British/ dual citizenship at the time of his birth that automatically disqualified him from ever holding the highest office in the land, regardless of his having been born in Hawaii or Kenya.

All the concentration on Obama’s long form birth certificate has proved to be a handy bludgeoning tool used by the MSM.  Yell “Birther” and see how many politicians are willing to stand their ground.

For a moment let me lend some credibility to people who question Obama’s eligibility and remind you that when Hillary was running that Bill Clinton mentioned Obama’s eligibility, some would say, making him the First Birther!

Now comes the latest politician willing to talk about Obama’s eligibility … for a short time anyway until, predictably,  the Birther charge was hurled at Virginia Attorney General Cuccinellia.  The timing is very interesting because Obamacare is also front and center.

Just a reminder, if we are correct and Obama has always been ineligible to hold office then every piece of legislation, including TARP and the hated Health Care bill Team Obama is determined to ram down America’s throat, would be null … void of legal force!

This despised 3,000 page monstrosity of payoffs and kick-backs masquerading as legislation could not be law.  Remember this point as you look at this video.

Here’s another really good question.  If Pelosi, Reid, and the Democrats are determined to use any means possible to pass Obamacare, despite the fact that most of the citizens of this country DO NOT WANT THIS BILL TO PASS, how long do you think it will be before an Attorney General in one of the 50 states decides to challenge the bill as being unconstitutional on the grounds that Obama, born a British/dual citizen is not legitimately President?




TEAM OBAMA’S ANSWER TO THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT … THE COFFEE PARTY?

I know I’ve been gone for several weeks … unable to write because of the pressures of business and survival in a economic atmosphere designed for only the hardiest of individuals … however, is this the best Team Obama can come up with?  The Coffee Party? coffee stainOh, pa leese!  Geez … there’s hokey and then there’s really hokey!

Let me see, if I have it right, a new “grass roots” movement is arising in response to the wildly successful Tea Party Movement, a genuine grass roots movement borne out of the frustration of watching a faux President and his Democratic/socialist lap dogs in a the government gone wild … impervious to the wishes of the populace.

The problem with anything obviously contrived is that it is so easily identified.  Metaphorically speaking it is akin to a pimple at the end of a big honker of a nose.  It appears that in addition to lacking a single good idea as to how to get the economy going or  how to lead and govern, this group of pea brains also lacks genuine creativity.  I can hear the brain storming  (I know that’s an oxymoron) now, ” ya well, if they can call themselves Tea Party members we can be Coffee Party members … tea’s a drink, coffee’s a drink, right? It’s a natural!”  No Mensa members here.

Hey, any of you whiz kids ever hear of the Boston Tea Party?  No?  Thought as much.  Here’s something else that’s no surprise; unlike the genuine article the Tea Party Movement, CNN, the Washington Post, and HuffPo all have put a positive spin on the new Coffee Party (ahem, would that be Starbucks, Maxwell House, Dunkin Donuts perhaps) Movement.  Unlike the derisive rhetoric used to describe any participant of the Tea Parties, the new Coffee Party participants are reasoned, reasonable folk who just want to get along (everybody sing Kumbaya, my Lord, Kumbaya)  … with a political Rodney King mind set as it were.

FYI, here’s a copy of their mission statement

MISSION: The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will (emphasis mine), and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.

Bless their collective, no dodge ball playing, everybody gets a trophy,  little hearts as they look for solutions while ignoring the Constitution.  One last thought.  Phony movements are like phony laughs  … they are empty, devoid of real sustainable emotion … and all the coffee in the world won’t change that!
