The Donald at CPAC

Straight talk from Donald Trump at CPAC. You won’t ever hear any other candidate or elected official tell it like this. Just like Sarah Palin, this is another strong, no nonsense person. He doesn’t mince words or candy coat anything. He tells you what you want and need to hear. I have to wonder why Obama was so stupid to appoint Jeffery Immelt to his economic advisors when he could have gotten Trump – a man who REALLY does know about free markets and fair trade.

One of the best parts is when he talks about Obama and his unknown, secret past.

It’s less than 15 minutes long so I hope you listen.

The most evil: Kermit Gosnell and health departments in PA

Kermit Gosnell, abortion butcher

This man is despicable. But more despicable is the non-existent oversight in Pennsylvania, the lack of protection for women and babies in this state. If I hear another politician say that he is in favor of safe and rare abortions, I’m gonna puke. No one, at least in Pennsylvania, really cares about ‘safe and rare’ or the best health care for women and babies. If they did, this clinic would have been closed long – LONG – ago.

If this is not proof that the liberals do not care about minorities and especially in this case, minority women, nothing does. This ‘doctor’ and I use the word loosely, preyed on the most poor, frightened and ignorant among us. He took their money and took no concern in their health, welfare or even their lives.  He delivered viable babies and killed them.

And all this under the noses of physicians in positions to stop this, state medical boards that apparently wanted to protect the rights of doctors, health departments who could have shut him down but ignored complaints, politicians who gave lipservice to protecting the rights of women to choose.

Did those poor, frightened women have any idea what they were choosing? Did they know that their unwanted, unborn babies would have their spinal cords snipped and their babies body parts preserved in pickle jars and milk cartons, decorating his office and stored in his office refrigerator?

Oh, I think not.

And to add insult to injury, Gossnel was preforming abortions after the legal gestational age. (24 weeks is the limit, after that abortions are criminal in the state of Pennsylvania.)

Did these women know that they would leave his office with venereal disease, perforated organs and raging infections? Did they know that they would leave his office sterile?

Was it worth the $400 cash and late night abortions, for all this?

There should be no doubt what the answer is.

Where in all of this is NOW? Not a word from them – AGAIN – about something that threatens the health, welfare and life of women, especially minority women who they brag so loudly that they champion and protect.

There is no justice for a man like this. But he is not alone in guilt. The entire liberal system should be held to account for this. The evidence is clear: he is a murderer and the system is just as culpable. There is no concern by the liberals for the welfare of the poor, there never has been. Pennsylvania was run by pro-abortion politicians for decades.  Their excuse to not securing and protecting the health and safety of the female patients was their concern that they would be erecting barriers to their almighty right to choice! These progressives have protected and by silence, encouraged the very thing they profess to want to eradicate: back alley, midnight abortions and abortion butchers.

I call BullShit on all of that! They care nothing for those most vulnerable patients – the women and the unborn babies. What they do care about is the votes they will get from those mostly minority communities.

In the end, it’s all about the votes, even if it means you have to lie to minorities to get them.

It’s beginning: the first Catholic hospitals for sale due to ObamaCare

This is a story that will be ignored by the msm because it will require a little digging and the need to ask some hard questions. But I can promise that when David Limbaugh writes his second volume of “Crimes Against Liberty” it will be heavily covered.

In a nutshell, 3 Catholic hospitals are for sale and will be closing in VP Biden’s hometown – Scranton, PA – all because of ObamaCare. The CEO of these hospitals was apparently strong armed by Obama operatives, behind the scenes, to walk back his original statement that ObamaCare “absolutely” was a major cause for these closures and sales.

Arm twisting by this regime is not a new thing:

As listed by the Wall Street Journal, those unintended consequences [of the passage of ObamaCare] included 2011 premium increases shooting up as high as 9%; “multibillion-dollar corporate writedowns by Verizon, AT&T, Caterpillar and others”; the disruption of insurance markets, a show-down with McDonald’s, the imposition of price controls on premiums, insurers withdrawing from Medicare Advantage.

In what appears to have become a pattern, the response from the Obama Administration has been repeatedly swift and harsh — compared by one critic as an episode straight out of the Sopranos, the famous HBO mobster series.

Henry Waxman, at first demanded that there be a congressional hearing in an attempt to intimidate these big businesses. But then he was informed that “hey, they were actually abiding by the law” when they informed their employees and insured of what was in store for them thanks to the new health care bill. Pigface Waxman had to back off and crawl back under his rock.

In Scranton “a town that is heavily Catholic, the realization that three hospitals that did not perform abortions could be sold to owners who would allow the procedure is infuriating.”

The abortion allowance in ObamaCare is tantamount to why these closures are happening. You will read this story and the flimsy change of heart by Joe Sestak (the one hold out on the ObamaCare vote because of his so-called pro-life position) will become clear. Sestak and other Catholics, including Sister Carol, have sold out to the Obama administration.

NOW’s response shows desperation in a losing cause

When the Tebow ad aired during the Super Bowl and made not one mention of ABORTION, it really took the wind out of NOW’s sails. I’m guessing those old grey haired hags (I can call them that as I’m one of them now – not a NOW member, but the other thing) had a rushed Skype confab to determine a Plan B attack.

So, as you’ve all heard, they took the tried and tired stance of violence against women.

Of course, as is par for this out-dated, out of style organization they ignored the Betty White tackle and mud wrestling ad – which I thought was pretty funny.

I can’t imagine anyone else – anyone as normal as I – who saw the Tebow ad and thought what NOW thought. This ad worked and it worked because the 4 words that mattered are still with me days after it aired: Celebrate Family. Celebrate Life.

And who can seriously take issue with that? No one.  At least no one who wants to retain any kind of credibility. How much more un-American can you be to have an issue with FAMILY? So NOW had to create an issue out of thin air.

The Los Angeles Times reported that NOW President Terry O’Neill said the Tebow ad – I couldn’t make this up – glorifies violence against women.

“I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she said. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.”

No, Terry O’Neill is the one who should be ashamed.

This violence against women thing really is a stretch and an obvious one. But to create an issue of this kind out of nothing and then to ignore actual cases of violence is nothing short of hypocritical. It’s circumstances like this that do nothing for their cause, credibility or the organization’s reputation.

Hours before the Tebow ad ran, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warren Sapp was arrested in Miami on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery against a woman.

Where was Terry O’Neill on that one?

This makes that defunct organization of old women look desperate, bitter and shrill. And very out of touch with real issues that affect women and families.

… we get a ridiculous statement of outrage about an ad featuring a loving family.

We know why, of course.

The Tebow ad features a message to contact the group Focus on the Family, which strongly opposes abortion.

I’m not going to get into that debate here, but it’s worth noting that prior to the airing of the ad, when NOW was trying to force CBS to keep it off the air, O’Neill told The Associated Press, “That’s not being respectful of other people’s lives. It is offensive to hold one way out as being a superior way over everybody else’s.”

Yes, it is.

And to say that Tim and Pam Tebow have glorified violence against women is worse than offensive. It’s downright stupid.

Is stupidity, desperation and bitterness an image that old grey haired hags really want to put forth? Well, it’s not an image I want. In my old grey haired hag days, I want to be viewed as wise, kind and strong.

And still very much in love with my family.

Red State & Erick Erickson: Insightful stuff

From Red State’s Erick Erickson:

Poor Ben Nelson. He went on John King’s show today and told King, “[I]f you think it’s fun having both sides on an issue mad at you when you’re trying to do something in good faith, just think, it’s like going home and getting bit by the family dog. So how — who enjoys that?”

We all know the truth, however. The proof is in the pudding of Ben Nelson’s arrangements with Harry Reid.

Nelson said he was standing firm on pro-life issues, but in fact his compromise will not help him. His compromise authorizes federal funding of abortions on Indian Reservations, but will make it difficult for white Americans to have access to abortions during Republican administrations.

That is the key. Under Nelson’s compromise, abortion access will fluctuate based on who the President is. A pro-life President will have the power to make it more difficult. A pro-death President like Barack Obama will make it exceedingly easy. The only constant will be federal abortion funding for Indians.

I guess Ben Nelson has no problem with the multi-century history of the feds trying to exterminate Indian populations. Surely Ben Nelson knew what he was agreeing to. The issue with abortions on Indian reservations is related to the reauthorization of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, which is tied to the health care legislation and about which Nelson was fully aware of its implications.

What’s more, we should consider the rest of what Nelson got. Under Ben Nelson’s compromise, the citizens of the several states will now pay for medicaid cost overruns in Nebraska forever. That’s right. No other state gets the commitment Nebraska gets. From now on, your state taxes are going to be raised when medicaid costs go up in your state and your federal taxes are going to go up when medicaid costs go up in Nebraska.

The rest of the Democratic Senators have been taken for a ride by Ben Nelson, who has managed to put his state in a better financial position at the expense of every other state’s residents, all while ensuring the feds get to keep subsidizing the costs of exterminating Indian kids on Reservations. Poor Mary Landrieu really did turn out to be a cheap date.

Ben Nelson did not act in good faith. And the only thing biting him has got to be his conscience.

And this, also from Erick:

If you oppose health care deform, you are racist, hate-spouting, Aryan who roots for the assassination of Barack Obama

From the floor of the United States Senate, today Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse proclaimed as much about opponents of health care, including his Republican colleagues inside the United States Senate.

The President of the Senate let him get away with it.

Senator Whitehouse specifically said, “They are desperate to break this president. They have ardent supporters who are nearly hysterical at the very election of President Barack Obama. The birthers, the fanatics, the people running around in right-wing militia and Aryan support groups, it is unbearable to them that President Barack Obama should exist. That is one powerful reason. It is not the only one.”

There you have it — gone are the days when Democrats compared American soldiers to Nazis on the floor of the Senate. Today, Democrats condone one of their own calling, from the floor of the Senate, the majority of American citizens Aryan hate mongers rooting for the assassination of the President of the United States.

And yes, Whitehouse was referring to the majority of American citizens. How do I know? Because every single poll is showing the majority of Americans opposed to this health care deform legislation. Whitehouse labeled everyone opposed to the legislation as racist hatemongers rooting for bullets against the President.

That is sad, sick, pathetic, and should be condemned by every other Senator.

In fact, you should call your Senator at 202-224-3121 and ask if he condemns Senator Whitehouse for saying, from the floor of the Senate, that opponents of the Democrats health care legislation want Barack Obama to be assassinated — the only clear interpretation of his remarks.

I’m no Johnny Cochran but if the Church doesn’t fit, you need to quit!

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin has banned Rep. Patrick Kennedy from receiving Communion, the central sacrament of the church, in Rhode Island because of the congressman’s support for abortion rights, Kennedy said in a newspaper interview published Sunday.

The decision by the outspoken prelate, reported on The Providence Journal’s Web site, significantly escalates a bitter dispute between Tobin, an ultra orthodox bishop, and Kennedy, a son of the nation’s most famous Roman Catholic family.

Fox News is exhibiting bias. Bishop Tobin is not an ULTRA ORTHODOX bishop because he is standing firm on a Church position. This is an example of the Church not bending to the fashionable PC position, or as Pope John Paul II called it: moral relativism. Whether a non-Catholic, or a Catholic for that matter, agrees with this position or not, the Church has no gray area on abortion. The Catholic Church has been unequivocal on this issue: abortion is a sin; it is the manifestation of a culture of death that the Church believes we have in America. There is no maybe about it. If the Church and her bishops remain firm on a basic tenant against abortion, as most evangelical churches also believe, that does not make them ULTRA ORTHODOX. It makes them believers with a conviction.

“The bishop instructed me not to take Communion and said that he has instructed the diocesan priests not to give me Communion,” Kennedy told the paper in an interview conducted Friday.

Kennedy said the bishop had explained the penalty by telling him “that I am not a good practicing Catholic because of the positions that I’ve taken as a public official,” particularly on abortion.

He declined to say when or how Tobin told him not to take the sacrament. And he declined to say whether he has obeyed the bishop’s injunction.

Sorry, Congressman, but that is how it is. You cannot be “a good practicing Catholic” and at the same time be pro-abortion. And you cannot blackmail the Church into relenting on this by taking it to the press and trying to make the Church the bad guy. No one needs to tell a practicing Catholic that he or she cannot receive communion regarding this issue. ANY practicing Catholic knows that on this topic, if he is pro-abortion, he CANNOT receive communion.

The paper said the bishop’s spokesman declined to address the question of whether he had told Kennedy not to receive Communion. But the bishop’s office cast doubt on Kennedy’s related assertion about instructions to state priests.

“Bishop Tobin has never addressed matters relative to public officials receiving Holy Communion with pastors of the diocese,” spokesman Michael K. Guilfoyle told the paper in an e-mailed statement.

Kennedy could appeal the decision to officials in the Vatican, but the hierarchy of the Catholic church is unlikely to overturn a bishop, said Michael Sean Winters, a church observer and author of “Left At the Altar: How Democrats Lost The Catholics And How Catholics Can Save The Democrats.”

“It’s really bad theology,” said Winters, who opposes abortion. “You’re turning the altar rail into a battle field, a political battlefield no less, and it does a disservice to the Eucharist.”

Bad theology? BAD THEOLOGY? Who died and made this guy St. Augustine?

In the words of Pope John Paul II, “A society with a diminshed sense of the value of human life at its earliest stage has already opened the door to a culture of death.” For myself, I’ll take his theology and that of St. Augustine over this modern day secular writer. Even if I didn’t agree with John Paul or St. Augustine, they are more authoritative regarding Church teachings than Winters is.

If anyone is turning the alter rail into a battlefield, it’s Kennedy and those Catholic politicians like him. I’ll say it again: The Church has a stand on this issue and will not bend on it. Winters wants to make the Church into a social war-mongering institution but it’s the politicians who are going to war – in the press – because they want a pass for following their own conscience and not the edicts of the Church that they profess to belong to.  If Kennedy can’t live by the teachings of the Church, he needs to find one that’s a better fit for him. But do not expect the Church to turn a blind eye to this just because he’s a congressman or a Kennedy.

The dispute between the two men began in October when Kennedy in an interview on CNSNews.com criticized the nation’s Catholic bishops for threatening to oppose a massive expansion of the nation’s health care system unless it included tighter restrictions on federally funded abortion.

In his CNSNews.com interview, Kennedy said this: I can’t understand for the life of me how the Catholic Church could be against the biggest social justice issue of our time where the very dignity of the human person is being respected by the fact that we’re caring and giving health care to the human person – that right now we have 50 million people who are uninsured. You mean to tell me the Catholic Church is going to be denying those people life saving health care? I thought they were pro-life. If the church is pro-life, then they ought to be for health care reform because it’s going to provide health care that are going to keep people alive. So this is an absolute red herring and I don’t think that it does anything but to fan the flames of dissent and discord and I don’t think it’s productive at all.”

There are several gross errors in his quote, not the least of which is that there are NOT 50million uninsured people in America. What a movable number that is!

But I digress.

The Church is for health care reform and he knows that very well. To Kennedy I say, the Church does believe in the dignity of the “human person” which is precisely why it has such a firm stand against abortion, ya big dummy! And if anyone is fanning flames of dissent and discord, it’s milque toast politicians like you who keep expecting and demanding that the Church back down and back off on this and conform to the moral relativism that is far too pervasive in this country now.

The majority of Americans (Catholic and non-Catholic alike) do not want their tax dollars paying for someone’s abortion or their birth control. Most Americans, unlike our politicians, believe in some kind of personal responsibility, especially in areas as intimate as reproduction. Congress just refuses to get it. You don’t have to be pro-life or a Catholic to believe in personal responsibility. But you certainly can’t be a democrat and believe it.

“While I greatly respect the Catholic Church and its leaders, like many Rhode Islanders, the fact that I disagree with the hierarchy of the church on some issues does not make me any less of a Catholic,” Kennedy wrote in a letter to Tobin, agreeing to a sitdown. “I embrace my faith which acknowledges the existence of an imperfect humanity.”

Again, ya big dummy, it DOES make you less Catholic! I’m not going to beat this dead horse anymore.

Yes, we are an imperfect humanity but does that give us permission to not strive for being more perfect and better humans? Should we all just agree that we aren’t perfect and therefore we have no reason to address those things in our society and our lives that would make this a better world? Or do we have to address only those things that YOU think would make us more perfect?

Face it, Congressman: You ARE just a big dummy!

[Bishop] Tobin followed up with a biting public letter published in a diocesan newspaper.

“Sorry, you can’t chalk it up to an ‘imperfect humanity.’ Your position is unacceptable to the Church and scandalous to many of our members. It absolutely diminishes your Communion with the Church,” Tobin wrote.


Evangelicals “The American Taliban”?

Fans of the apocalyptic books Left Behind and Evangelicals, as well as Fox News will be to blame if anything untoward happens to TheOne, at least according to this guy and Rachal Maddow. The right, still called extreme and dangerous has the new title of “American Taliban” leveled against them. Once again, they are being compared to Timothy McVeigh. You’re not crazy but at least deluded, according to Frank Schaeffer and he adds, very dangerous. “This [Psalm 109:8] is the Old Testament equivalent of calling for a holy war.”

“Let his days be few and let another take his office.” [Psalm 109:8]

Personally, I want his “days to be few” too – as in ONE TERM, voted out of office. The only other way to get him out of office is to impeach him and I just don’t see that happening with a super majority of HIS party in Congress.

And just maybe that’s what the designer of this merchandise had in mind, too. Take note that verse 9 of this psalm is not being quoted – only verse 8. Maddow is going to keep adding verse 9  (“May his children be fatherless, his wife a widow”) to this narrative, though to keep stirring up the anti-Obama sentiments and making the right look ever more extreme and dangerous.

But let’s take a look at the context of this verse.

What a novel idea, you say? Check the context – something you’d think that “journalists” would be doing and something you’d think a person who calls himself “a man of God” would already know.

Psalm 109 is a prayer to God by one who has been falsely accused. It’s a prayer by a just man to God against those who have done him wrong, falsely accused him. According to the explanation of this Psalm in my Bible ” the psalmist is apparently the victim of a slander campaign, potentially devastating in a society where reputation and honor are paramount.”

Verses 1-3: “Oh God, whom I praise, do not be silent, for wicked and treacherous mouths attack me. They speak against me with lying tongues, with hateful words they surround me, attacking me without cause.”

Verses 6-8: “My enemies say to me: “find a lying witness, an accuser to stand by his right hand, That he may be judged and found quilty, that his plea may be in vain, MAY HIS DAYS BE FEW, MAY ANOTHER TAKE HIS OFFICE.”

Obviously, the person who used this particular psalm and verse to pray for Obama’s short tenure as president, chose the wrong Psalm. This Psalm could actually be used as a prayer for a president whose supporters believe has been wickedly slandered by the right. There are plenty on the left and in the MSM who believe that Obama has been unjustly slandered, libeled and just all around mistreated by the religious right.

But more importantly, this is a prime example of what happens when someone picks and chooses a verse or a chapter from the Bible and tries to make it fit something entirely different. Most people fall for this and don’t question it. Whoever came up with this marketing campaign, not only made a big mistake in the Psalm and verse, but has done nothing to further the cause for which he seems to stand. In fact, he has harmed his own cause and the Christian right who would never dream of praying for this.  Just like once again, the crazy who killed Dr. Tiller (while in church, no less) is being trotted out as the specimen of Christian America. Just as abortion bombers don’t further the cause of the pro-life activists.

This kind of marketing hurts Christians and should be called out for what it is: stupid, misguided, dangerous and contrary to the cause of Christian Americans.
