Banning Christmas from the Capitol Christmas Tree

Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) called on Arizona state and federal officials on Monday to stop enforcing a requirement prohibiting the state’s schoolchildren from expressing religious viewpoints through Christmas themes while decorating ornaments for the 2009 Capitol Christmas Tree.

Arizona was chosen this year to present 4,000 handcrafted ornaments made by elementary, middle-school, and high-school students to decorate Washington, D.C.’s annual Christmas tree.

Guidelines for the ornaments include specifications for their size, weight, composition, and the directive that “Ornaments cannot reflect a religious or political theme… Instead share your interpretation of our theme ‘Arizona’s Gift, from the Grand Canyon State.'”

In a letter to federal and state officials, including Arizona Governor Janice Brewer, ADF attorneys demanded that they abandon the discrimination against religious viewpoints.

“Banning Christmas from the Capitol Christmas tree is just absurd. Christian students shouldn’t be discriminated against for expressing their religious beliefs,” said ADF Litigation Staff Counsel Jonathan Scruggs.  LINK

Can’t you just hear the carols?  “O-Bama Tree, O-Bama Tree …”

Government school teaches children to worship obama

You may have already seen this video circulating on the web.  To me, it is completely creepy.  Makes my skin crawl.

I know my Baptist friends told me I was crazy when I suggested that this man is the Anti-messiah.

I’ve been consistent on this since obama’s Super Tuesday speech.  Remember?

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

Blasphemous.

What else could you call him?

False prophet?

The 12th  Mahdi?

I don’t know.  But every fiber of my being tells me to resist this man, his followers, and his message, every step of the way.

No backing down.  No compromise.  Never.

Obama’s brain

President Obama’s extensive use of the teleprompter is so pervasive that even the NYT notices (even as they try to explain it away).

Presidents have been using teleprompters for more than half a century, but none relied on them as extensively as Mr. Obama has so far. While presidents typically have used them for their most important speeches to the nation — an inauguration, a State of the Union or an Oval Office address — Mr. Obama uses them for everyday routine announcements, and even for the opening statement at his news conference.

He used them during a visit to a Caterpillar plant in Peoria, Ill. He used them to make brief remarks at the opening of his “fiscal responsibility summit.” He used them during a visit to the Interior Department to discuss endangered species, even as he recalled a visit to some national parks as an 11-year-old. “That was an experience I will never forget,” he said, reading from the teleprompter.

Early on in the Bush administration, Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote the highly critical tome “Bush’s Brain” which castigated Bush as having no original thoughts, and identified Karl Rove as the evil power behind the throne.  Now that the Times has noticed the vacuity and lack of sponteneity of the messiah, can we expect a new book from Ms Dowd?

Red Alert: Confidential witness ready to blow up Clinton and Holder confirmations with dirt on the Marc Rich pardon, Doug Ross

I can’t think of a better way for Obama to finally be rid of Her Thighness than to have her publicly humiliated with this garbage.

But then, Obama wouldn’t be behind this. No. Never. Henh.

A Libertarian Defense of Social Conservatism, By Randall Hoven

I’m still searching for the mythical creature that is the “financially conservative, socially liberal” politician. In virtually every case, the pro-abortion or pro-gay marriage politician is the first to vote against a tax cut, the first to vote for more spending and quick to compromise principles on any issue there is.

Using the National Journal’s ratings of Senators in 2007 , the correlation coefficient between “economic” scores and “social” scores is 90%. That means they almost always go together; financial conservatives are social conservatives and vice versa. Every Senator scoring above 60 in economic issues, scored above 50 in social ones. Every Senator scoring below 40 in economic issues, scored below 50 in social ones. If there is such an animal as a “financial conservative, social liberal”, it does not exist in the US Senate.

Muslim Fanatics ‘Hijack British Prison’, Daily (uk) Express

MUSLIM prisoners have launched a reign of terror inside a top security British jail.

The fanatics are forcing fellow inmates to convert to Islam or face punishment beatings.

One man who stood up to the thugs was branded with a lump of hot metal, according to a prison source.

The crisis at Whitemoor jail in Cambridgeshire has led to calls by staff for the 100 Muslim inmates there to be dispersed to other prisons round the country.

Some Al Qaeda supporters have set up a kangaroo court, sitting in judgment on prisoners and ordering punishments, the source said.

Hawaiian officials admit withholding Obama’s original BC, Israel Insider

Now it’s pretty apparent why Barack Obama made his sudden, last minute visit to Honolulu. It wasn’t Granny’s health problems that interested him but Hawaii’s Health Department.

The strategy may have backfired. A statement by Hawaiian officials Friday that they have seen but won’t release an “original” birth certificate that has never been released raises more questions than it answers.

Time for a Bank Holiday, The Nation

Here is the ugly, unofficial truth that neither Wall Street nor the government will acknowledge: the pinnacle of the US financial system is broke–with perhaps $2 trillion in rotten financial assets on the books. Nobody knows, exactly. The bankers won’t say, and regulators won’t ask, or at least don’t dare tell the public. Official silence naturally feeds the conviction that banking’s problems are far worse than we’ve been told. The Levy Economics Institute of Bard College puts it plainly: “It is probable that many and perhaps most financial institutions are insolvent today–with a black hole of negative net worth that would swallow Paulson’s entire $700 billion in one gulp.”

The World is Coming to an End (And it might even have a happy ending), Financial Sense Univ

We are facing a depression that will rival that of the Great Depression of the 1920’s and may more closely resemble the Greater Depression of 1873.

There are going to be stock market rallies within this bear market, and that will be the time for those still holding and hoping to get out before the bear really begins to claw in 2009.

Before this secular Bear Market is over, we are going to new lows in all indices, more than 3500 banks will close, unemployment will surge, there will be violence in the streets and people will kill you to get what you have.


UBS may need extra bailout, swissinfo

Switzerland’s biggest bank, UBS, could receive another bailout if it faces more difficulties under the global financial crisis, the Federal Banking Commission says.

So, who’s next in the bailout parade?


Citi to get bailout,
WSJ

WASHINGTON – The federal government agreed Sunday to take unprecedented steps to stabilize Citigroup Inc. by moving to guarantee close to $300 billion in troubled assets weighing on the bank’s books, according to people familiar with details of the plan.

Treasury has agreed to inject an additional $20 billion in capital into Citigroup under terms of the deal hashed out between the bank, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Treasury officials will charge a higher interest rate for the capital injection — 8% for the first few years — than it has charged to dozens of other banks now borrowing money under the government’s the $700 billion rescue package approved by Congress last month.

It is up to the Christians

I was reading an article over at Politico a few days ago which talked about obama’s appeal to church-going Christians. Or, should I say, his lack of appeal to church-going Christians.

In spite of all that has been written and talked about the obama outreach effort to evangelical voters, only 28% if this large demographic group is planning to vote for obama. In fact, that number is slightly less than John Kerry received 4 years ago. How significant is this? The evangelical vote is about one third of the electorate. This is good news for John McCain.

Should anyone be surprised? I really don’t think so.

The obama campaign is offensive to Christians on many levels. Certainly the Right to Life is a large part of that. Even more so, I think, is the messiah-like worship that obama’s supporters have given to him. 0bama himself has done nothing at all to discourage them, and actually seems to revel in it.

It is the type of behavior that leaves a large portion of the evangelical right wondering if we are seeing the rise of the antichrist.

I don’t use those words easily, and just seeing them on screen gives me pause.

He can still be defeated.

This year, more than ever, it is up to the Christians.

Time to throw auntie under the bus

Yesterday, I wrote a short post about Obama’s aunt who was revealed to be living in a housing project in Boston…

if this were John McCain’s or Sarah Palin’s aunt, do you think we would be reading about it in a British newspaper, only days before the election?

Somehow, I get the feeling that MSNBC snd CNN would have run weeks worth of in depth interviews. But, since it really doesn’t reflect well on Obama, it just gets ignored.

I suppose being embarrassed by the British press was enough to get the AP moving….

Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.

Imagine that. Heh™ .

Time to throw auntie under Obama’s bus

The last line of the AP article was interesting“It was not immediately clear how Onyango might have qualified for public housing with a standing deportation order.”

Dang. I’m going to have to think hard about that one. BWAHAHAAAA

The Obamafia gets “in their face”

Recently this website has witnessed Chicago machine-thuggery responding to obama’s exhortation to get in their face. Attempting not only to harass and intimidate, but also to deflect attention from the lack of any substantial record of the community-organizer CIC-wannabe, the Obamafia’s thuggery is truly disgusting.

But given the record of their candidate, it no wonder.

What little record exists is in direct opposition to the messiah-like claims of healing and cooperation.

Some facts about Obama’s record:

Source: 1998 IL State Legislative National Political Awareness Test Jul 2, 1998

Voted YES on continuing federal funds for declared “sanctuary cities”

Voted NO on declaring English as the official language of the US government.

Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.

Voted YES on giving Guest Workers a path to citizenship.

Provide funding for social services for non-citizens. Obama co-sponsored providing funding for social services for non-citizens.

Rated 8% by USBC, indicating an open-border stance. Obama scores 8% by USBC on immigration issues
(U.S. Border Control, founded in 1988, is a non-profit, tax-exempt, citizen’s lobby. USBC is dedicated to ending illegal immigration by securing our nation’s borders and reforming our immigration policies. USBC [works with] Congressmen to stop amnesty; seal our borders against terrorism and illegal immigration; and, preserve our nation’s language, culture and American way of life for future generations)

On Abortion: He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too close to infanticide.”

Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed he would not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” because of a crisis pregnancy

In 1972, Alinsky warned the Black Panthers and SDS that their tactics would fail, and that if they continued they would end up dead. He said that the only way to bring their brand of radical change to America was to organize the middle class, and empower community groups with massive infusions of cash.

Fast-forward to 2008:  ACORN is flush with cash (along with numerous investigations and allegations of monumental fraud), and middle class thugs are trying to suppress the free speech rights of anyone who would oppose the dear leader.

Be warned. This battle is far from over. In fact, the political Right is only now waking up to the threat. In the next two weeks, the tide will turn decisively in favor of traditional American values.

Have faith.
