More On Civility And Tea Party Racism‏ - Soros: Republic Enemy #1 - ACORN Corruption Is UNBOUNDED! – A Response To Sen. Casey Who Only Echoes Obama's Talking Points

 

 

The crescendo of opposition against Obama has NOTHING to do with race.  It has EVERYTHING to do with the fact that Comrade Obama was weaned on Marxist Socialism, and learned his lessons well as evinced by his horrendous policies in the way of a litany of the most heinous legislation ever to come before a Congress, legislation that is expressly designed to destroy America from within turning it into a Communist state with Obama as dictator-in-chief over the rest of us who will be slaves to the all controlling central government - to heck with the Constitution.   

 

That is why Comrade Obama is being opposed, for benefit of information to his Democratic Party hacks who are enabling him in his destruction of our country from within, turning it into a Godless state that worships Obama's master, the father-of-lies!

 

We are talking about a man who shamelessly promotes the entirety of a culture-of-death that is contrary to the common good, a culture-of-eternal-death to be sure, as recognized by those of faith and right reason who are fighting for the heart and soul of their country against the forces of evil led by Obama and his minions, in particular, those like George Soros who are pulling Obama's puppet strings!

 

Moreover, we are talking about a man who is surrounded by the considerable smoke that he was never qualified to run for president in the first place, given the army of lawyers that he has employed to ensure that Americans will never know the truth which is the biggest casualty of the pathological lying Obama administration!

 

We're talking about a diabolic evil that has the country by the jugular to the extreme of seeing nothing wrong with not only killing babies within their mothers' wombs but also outside of them! 

 

We are fighting WWIII.  The frontlines are in our hometowns!  We are all combatants in this most critical period of all of American history.  Will God bless us or we deserve the damnation of the devil and his angels!  The choice is ours!  We speak up now; else we will never have a chance to speak up again as the America of our founding fathers will be no more with the unchecked evil of Obama overcoming the country, and eventually the world!  

 

We vehemently, with every fiber of our being, oppose Obama because he is a Communist usurper who is turning the American dream into an American nightmare by rendering the country unfit for our children, grandchildren, and future generations of Americans to live in, a country where authentic freedom to do what you ought is replaced by the mandated orders to do what Obama wants under force of law!  We're talking about the tyranny of a disciple of the devil who couldn't care less about the free will gift to man from God Almighty!  We're talking about a one-way ticket to hell if Comrade Obama has his way!  

 

We are not obliged to follow Obama to hell!  Understand that all you Democratic Party hacks who preposterously accuse us of racism for believing that God's Law takes priority over man's.  We're not going to violate the First Commandment.  We're not going to worship Comrade Obama on an altar to Baal!  Rather, we care about our eternity where promoting the common good leads ultimately to a supernatural good in a Kingdom not of this world as opposed to an earthly utopia which has been a lie since The Fall in Eden!  And with the help of God, we will prevail! - Gary L. Morella

Black conservatives may be scarcer than hen's teeth, but they sure are articulate and they are multiplying. Watch out, you lefties playing the race card. People are beginning to wake up to the fact that it's a cheat you're pulling out of your sleeve.


Manufactured March Madness

 

Manufactured March Madness


Robert Knight
Tuesday, September 15, 2009

 

If Woodstock in 1969 presaged the free-wheeling ’70s, then Saturday’s massive TEA party rally at the Capitol against Big Government may be the Constitutionalists’ equivalent and harbinger of hope for the next decade.

Or it’s a tsunami of incivility, depending on where you fit into Obama Nation.

The mood was remarkably upbeat as thousands of people peacefully marched from near the White House to the Capitol. Crowd estimates varied widely, with some as low as 100,000 to as high as 1.8 million.

Upon arriving at the Mall, the marchers swirled around large tents in the middle of the green that housed a different gathering, the 24th Annual Black Family Reunion. There was little doubt that the tent people heavily support President Obama, yet there was no confrontation, no hostility from either side. People said hello to each other and moved on. While some marchers probably were uneasy about the separatism implicit in the title, most probably felt a benign solidarity. At least the event celebrated the idea of family. And the black family has borne the brunt of the liberal welfare state’s experimental horrors. 

This peaceful coexistence didn’t stop the Washington Post from trying to paint a completely different picture. The Post had done a creditable job on Sunday covering the big event on the front page, complete with a color photo of the huge crowd. But the paper’s left knee jerked strongly on Monday.  Here’s the Metro Page One headline:  “Seeking Healing, Seeing Hostility.” And the subhead: “Some at Black Family Reunion Criticize Protests Against Obama.”

Post reporter Yamiche Alcindor dug out some people who reliably equated the protest to outright racism. Vera Hope, a D.C. teacher who reportedly had just “left a booth promoting health prevention (sic),” opined of the rally:  “It’s not conducive to the coalitions we need to build in this country. I’m disgusted and upset by the hostility. Let’s call it was (sic) it is – it’s just a disguise for right-wing racists. They are fomenting a climate of violence to provoke people.”

Really? One would look in vain for what Hope claimed was the bad motive of all those hundreds of thousands who had come from Oklahoma, Florida, Ohio and even Barney Frank’s Massachusetts. About the only thing upon which you could hang this absurd assertion might be a few Lyndon LaRouche Democrats who carried pictures of Obama with a Hitler mustache. The media love those. Or perhaps the guys who doctored a photo of Obama to look like the Joker in Batman. Neither image has anything to do with race.

The vast majority of signs called for less government and less spending. The yellow flags flying everywhere amid baby strollers and men in veteran’s hats were the American Revolution banner designed by South Carolina patriot Gen. Christopher Gadsden, featuring a coiled rattlesnake and the phrase “Don’t Tread on Me.”   To find a racist aspect here you had to channel Jesse Jackson: “The hope of a dope is the mope of a rope!” Or somesuch.)

The Post quoted Black Family Reunion organizer Dorothy Height, president of the National Council of Negro Women, as saying she was glad the two groups had gotten along fine. But – and here’s the message the Post wanted to get across: she noted that some of the marchers were crass. Yes, a tiny few. One sign identified NBC as the Nothing But Crap network. A couple said “Obama sucks!” Not very classy.

“They are a bad sign for democracy,” Height said. “I’ve never heard anyone say that they wished the other president would fail.”  Perhaps Ms. Height was unaware of the profanity-filled leftist protests in Washington over the past eight years. And I’m not just talking about Congress. Some street demonstrators called for, among other things, the death of President Bush and for “regime change now” (before the next election). Marchers splashed red paint on the Capitol steps and called the police “pigs” and Mr. Bush a lot worse. A good time was had by all.

The rhetoric over health care has been tough from all sides. In his speech last week, Mr. Obama described as “bogus” any criticism of his takeover plan, and said the “death panel” label for end-of-life counseling and cost cutting “is a lie, plain and simple.” When he told the whopper that illegal aliens would not be covered,  Rep. Joe Wilson from Gadsden’s South Carolina suddenly concluded, as Popeye would say, “It’s all I can stands, I can’t stands no more!” and blurted out “You lie!”

Okay, not very conciliatory. But Rep. Wilson’s outburst should not be measured in a vacuum. You could put it up against the rants of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who even TIME magazine calls “foul-mouthed.” And over the summer, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accused critics of being “evil mongers,” while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer wrote a USA Today column calling townhall participants “un-American” who are conducting “an ugly campaign.”

It’s a safe bet these pols aren’t “seeking healing.”



Garofalo on American Tea Parties: Racists Who Hate the Black President–Really

24 Star/actress turned Political Pundit Jeanine Garofalo

 
My first response on hearing and then viewing the video clip of Ms. Garofalo on MSNBC last Thursday evening was simply: WOW!


Is this what the Republic is coming to in the 21st Century? Political extremism has gone WILD!
Regular working class and rural, suburban White Americans must feel a bit under assault as of late. 


How so you ask? Well, it started in the 2008 primary campaign with off handed comments being made by then candidate Obama about “bitter Americans clinging to their guns and religion”, then Senator Clinton started talking about “hardworking white Americans” in Pennsylvania as she desperately needed to carry that state.


Everything was about race in the 2008 Campaign.  Former President Bill Clinton was deemed a racist red neck jack asswho didn’t know when to shut up according to the media, political pundits and many black politicians for his comments during the South Carolina primaries.  McCain was deemed a racist simply because he existed and was the GOP standardbearer. Once he picked working class, university of Idaho educated, mother of five Alaska Governor Sara Palin all hell truly broke loose.


I am so sick and tired of RACE.  Period.  When are we going to get over it? For Real folks.  As someone who was an African American studies minor in college, pledged the oldest and most prestigious black women’s sorority, was once a loyal card carrying member of the NAACP ( I did not renew my membership after the 2000 election campaign ads that ran against then Gov. George Bush paid for by the NAACP), started a very successful national organization for professional women of color, and I could go and on I am sick of the tearing apart of one set of Americans by their own fellow countrymen. 


Yes, I am defending my mostly white (some Tea Party goers were black, Hispanic, etc.) Tea Party attending brethren because enough is enoughdamnit.  On last Thursday’s “Countdown,” MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and his guest Janeane Garofalo defamed fellow citizens who attended the prior day’s Tea Parties with vitriolic contempt. Ms. Garofalo actually called Party-goers “a bunch of teabagging rednecks,” adding “this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.”


She is wrong and she knows nothing about true racism–having never spent a day of her life being black in America.  I do know something about racism as I and millions of other people of color have endured and experienced its ugly insidiousness.  It is not a word that should be thrown around lightly or recklessly.  If we dare not stand in defense of our fellow citizens right to protest peacefully against our/their government then we are giving into a sneaky form of Tyranny.  Race has nothing to do with the hardworking, decent American citizens who simply got sick and tired of being overtaxed and outspent by their government and showed up to do something about it.


That is our solemn duties as Americans.  This freedom is what makes us the envy of the world.
I am deeply disappointed in the current diaglogue that seems to be developing on the current American horizon.  If we don’t stop yelling at each other, hurling insults and names, and band together as a nation once again, then those who seek the undoing of their fellow citizens of a different opinion, thought or political stripe had better grasp firmly the old saying “what you gonna do when they come for you?”

 



Those Racist Tea Parties!

Those Racist Tea Parties!

Janeane Garafolo says the tea parties were a gathering of racists.


Strange, that these racists would welcome a black man to speak at their racist gathering at the state capital.
I wasn’t expecting to speak, I just went up to get some footage for PJTV, but the organizer of the Tea Party found out I was there, and requested I come up and say a few words. How racist!!!


If you’re a right winger and are tired of the media painting you as racist, spread this vid and watch the left downplay it and expose themselves even more as the true racists!


God bless, ya!

The Mainstream media is suddenly concerned about the ugliness of the debate in America. Those tea party folks are inserting an uncivil and even dangerous tone into the debate that we've never seen before, they say. Give me a break! Do you folks have short memories? Where were you during the Bush years? Where were you when Sarah Palin's CHILDREN were being attacked by the likes of David Letterman and Bill Maher? After watching the CNN video below which summarizes hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans by ONE stupid protest sign, check out the "civilized" attacks on George Bush. Oh, I forgot, those weren't uncivil attacks; they were true.

Frankly, I'm not a Bush fan. I didn't vote for him in his second term. He is a big government neo-conservative and contributed to a lot of our problems. I vote candidates, not party. Having said that, let's hear the left justify the photos below. And I'm old enough to remember the ad during the Johnson/Goldwater election with the little girl picking daisies when the nuclear explosion takes place and you see the mushroom cloud in the background.

Scare tactics and demonizing your opponent aren't an invention of conservatives. Get real, CNN. I was there in D.C. and I saw very few signs that by any stretch of the imagination could be interpreted as racist. This is just one more example of the mainstream media carrying water for the left.

Soros: Republic Enemy #1

“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.”—George Soros

“George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” —Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

image

Is it possible to lay the global financial meltdown, the radicalizing of the Democratic Party, and America’s moral decline, at the feet of one man? 

It is indeed possible. 

If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until the real thing comes along.  Move over, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot.  There’s a new kid on the block.

What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience.  He considers himself to be a world class philosopher, despises capitalism, and just loves social engineering. 

Uh oh.  Can you say “trouble,” boys and girls? 

Soros is a real life version of Dr. Evil—with Obama in the role of Mini-Me.  Which is not as humorous as it might at first sound.  In fact, it’s bone-deep chilling.

György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary.  Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of Esperanto—a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.

The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.  Soros is an Esperanto word meaning “to soar.”

In 1944 Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews.  The Soros children were all given fake identity papers, and were shipped out to various Christian families.  George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population.  Soros went with him on his rounds.

Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.” 

In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Joshua Muravchik notes that, “70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year. They were dying and disappearing all around him, and their numbers no doubt included many whom he knew personally. Yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”

During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year:” 

Sweetness & Light

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who  
swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the
psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

SOROS: Not, not at all.  Not at all. 

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

SOROS: No.

Of course he didn’t feel guilty.  Soros has the moral depth of a clam.  Nonetheless, he has said, “my goal is to become the conscience of the world.” 

In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having “carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.” 

Can you imagine the results of this messianic sociopath being “the conscience of the world?”  Ye gods.

Be that as it may.  After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors.  Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994.  Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and Fallibilism.

Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken.  Then again, I could be wrong about that.

The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering.  Regarding “open society” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.


In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune.  He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation.

Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune.  By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England.  He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically…almost overnight.”

In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.”  The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.”  The “Soros Empire” indeed.

In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia.  At the time, Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.”  Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.” (Source)

The website Greek national Pride reports, “[Soros] was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [Burma].  Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain.  He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”

France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading.  Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars. (Source)

Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.”  Elizabeth Crum writes that “The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized.  [Soros’] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary’s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.” (Source)

Soros’ grasp, greed, gluttony have a global reach

My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite.  His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.

But what about America?  Soros told Australia’s national newspaper “The Australian” “America, as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world.  This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits.

Ready to tighten your belts, America?

World financial crisis was”stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”

Soros also told “The Australian” that the world financial crisis was”stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”

Stimulating.  Have you found the job losses, house foreclosures, and incredible national debt—stimulating?  Me neither.

Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil (yes, billion with a “b”), in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields.  Obama’s largesse towards Brazil, came shortly after Soros invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras). 

Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U.S.  The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security.”

Do you get the feeling that American taxpayers are being treated like gullible suckers? 

(By the way, if you want a short primer on Far Left economics—and a great cartoon from a 1911 St. Louis Post-Dispatch—go to actor Michael Moriarty’s website).


A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com.  This is their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all…who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of…George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same:  the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day stop preying upon the world’s poor…that justice will be served.” 

Back to America.  Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now.  People have been warning us.  Two years ago Bill O’Reilly said on “The O’Reilly Factor” that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous….” (Source)

In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change—or more accurately deconstruct—the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people.  His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of an ideology of rights and entitlements.”

Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe.  Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. 

Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years.  I don’t have time to do the subject justice in this article, but FrontPage’s Jamie Glazov has an excellent interview with Richard Poe, which will fill you in on many of the facts.

The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration.

DiscoverTheNetworks.org (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia.  When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government—a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”


The above quote was, of course, written before the Presidential Election.  So was the following quote from a November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS should do after taking office.  “I think we need a large stimulus package….”  Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right. 

Soros also said that “I think this is a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”

Any of this sound familiar?

Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars.  According to an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr. 

In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton—Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds. 

When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time.  Republican Senator John McCain was the keynote speaker at the “Soros Convention” (so labelled by the late Robert Novak) in Philadelphia.

Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me.  And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA.

And I musn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the LSM (Lame Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to.

As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”

Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America’s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”

Some of the many NGOs (None Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance, Media Matters for America, the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America), La Raza, and many more.  For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org.

Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”


As I’ve said before, America currently faces the greatest challenge to its existence as a free republic since the Civil War.  And as we go, so goes the world.

So is Soros to blame for all of America’s woes?

Without Soros, would the Saul Alinsky Chicago machine still be rolling?  Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities?  Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government?  Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?  Yes, yes, yes, and yes—but to much less of a degree.

The purpose of this article is to point out that without the financial skullduggery and Machiavellian manipulations of Soros, America would be a considerably safer, saner, and stabler place to live. 

America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros.  Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America.

His conduct has been immoral, duplicitous, and traitorous.  Stripping Soros of his U.S. citizenship, should be one of the first steps taken during the upcoming courtroom trials.

And trials there must be.  No matter the cost, the nest of vipers on Capitol Hill, and all of the traitors in the government at large, must be brought to task for their behavior, or a free America is doomed. 

The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?  Forbid it, Almighty God!  I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

These days, Patrick Henry’s sentiment is more than just some quaint hyperbole from long ago—it’s a slow burning, but intense, glow that fires our courage and heart.

Laus Deo.

       It started decades ago in this country: the hammering away at the notion that ours is a noble and commendable history.  From the demonization of Christopher Columbus and our founding fathers to the endless recriminations concerning reparations--both moral and pecuniary--for past sins that are due to those who never suffered directly under them.  And now our president has the uncontrollable urge to apologize for every action by the United States which may or may not have caused pain to anyone, anywhere around the globe.

 

        Some of us who take a more charitable view, have tried to explain this attitude away as an erosion of the concept of American exceptionalism, but the simple truth is that what most liberals are selling is a program of national self-hate.  But liberal logic is never lacking in irony.  These very same feelings of patriotism and pride in our heritage that they disparage are, of course, lauded in others--particularly our Muslim enemies.  And it is this kind of thinking that is finally catching up to them.

 

        That Barack Obama’s poll numbers have tanked is not news.  Considering the cloying adoration the media have shown him, it’s the speed with which they’ve dropped that should be cause for alarm for his supporters.  But from the viewpoint of the loyal opposition, the delicious poll numbers are those which suggest a growing distaste for some of the pillars of the liberal agenda.  A glance at the latest Rasmussen Reports should send shivers down the spines of Democrats everywhere.

 

        For the first time, the number of Americans not buying into the human-caused global warming canard is greater than those who have bowed to the near-total propaganda campaign supporting it.  Forty-five percent of us think that labor unions weaken our country and nearly half think labor unions have outlived their usefulness.  And in a development sure to impact future elections, a whopping 83 percent of those polled think that only U.S. citizens should have access to government healthcare subsidies.  And speaking of same, while opposition to health care reform is now at 53 percent overall, the shocking number is that 62 percent of independent voters are opposed to it.  So it’s not surprising that Republicans are gaining in the generic congressional ballot polling.  But why?

 

        I have long contended that the liberal desire to impose socialism on America is one that must be induced gradually and covertly--much like the contention by Mary Poppins that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down . Were its aims not couched in sweet-sounding terms like ''social justice,'' ‘'saving the planet,'’ and '‘it’s for the children,'' Americans would have rejected liberalism’s tender mercies years ago. Without these niceties, naked ambition can be seen as it really is: naked.

 

        Because, at its heart, the true goal of '‘progressives’' is the repudiation of all that this country was founded on.  This is particularly true concerning the right of people to govern themselves in a way that counts the protections of private property and personal freedom as sacrosanct, and is codified under the tenets of natural law as defined by the Judeo-Christian ethic.  And this is why, under the guise of their decades-long campaign to raise the self-esteem of our countrymen and especially our children, what has taken place is just the opposite--at least where it concerns their citizenship. 

 

        Progressives have encouraged us to revile our predecessors as bigoted, hateful empire-builders, driven by a misguided reliance on religion, and reduced our defense of freedom around the world to a pathetic form of misplaced patriotism.  They embrace, as Pope Benedict XVI has said, “a pacifism that does not recognize that some values are worthy of being defended and that assigns the same value to everything.”  In a word, they desire to make America into an unlovely nation by seeing to it that it is unloved.

 

        But self-hate can only go so far before it immolates its object--itself.  And this is what explains the sudden repudiation of the Obama agenda: too much socialism, far too soon.  Again, when ladled out in tiny portions and sweetened by euphemistic doublespeak, liberalism may be tolerated by a trusting populace; one that has always had a good and charitable heart.  But Obama's Democrats have seized power too quickly and they have attempted to rush their radical agenda through a friendly Congress.  the wolf’s fangs are laid bare as the sheep’s clothing falls away.

 

        Because the thing is that while there are many folks alive who remember the dismal failures of socialism and its big brother communism, there are also many prescient young people who are experiencing it for the first time and have noticed its foul taste, smothered though it may be in syrupy media pap.  It can’t make too many liberals happy that according to John Zogby, 41 percent of Americans under 30 now disapprove of the president’s handling of his job.

 

        It’s often said that George W. Bush’s attempts to reform Social Security failed because he dared to tread on the third rail of American politics.  But it is the Democrats who are getting the hotfoot this time; shocked as they are their countrymen are refusing to accept government control of their lives for their own good.  And for Americans, that is a total expression of self-love.

 

Michael Moore Striking Another Blow at the American Way

Moore's Capitalism Fantasia
by Ted Nugent
HumanEvents.com

Michael Moore is back with more twisted, cinematic buffoonery.

Instead of reprising his award-winning ignorance on gun control or health care, he now throws his blunt, inaccurate left winging darts at capitalism with his new movie "Capitalism: A Love Story."

No one I know will be giving Mikey any money to further encourage his Three Stooges logic and anti-American ideologies by paying to see this nonsense.  Actually, no one I know would be dumb enough to sit through it. (Ok, some people I know would, but they all work for NBC or the New York Times.)

In true Moore style, he is attacking the very economic system that supplies him with capital to make goofy movies that only goofy, out-of-touch people pay to see. Brilliant. Indeed, it is a mad, mad, mad world. Michael Moore qualifies for a documentary award like I deserve a PETA “save the whales, fur is murder” award. Go figure.

Moore attacks the wealthy in this new movie -- even though he is one -- yet I wonder if he has the intellectual guts and honesty to admit that it is the wealthy who made the sacrifices and put in the time and effort in order to own the businesses that employ everyone else and drive the highest quality of life the planet has ever known. (Is the experiment on drugs still going on?)

What Moore and his idol, President Obama, fail to understand is that soaking the rich with higher taxes ultimately equates to middle class jobs disappearing, the very Americans olMikey claims to care about.  One of these days the economic numbskulls amongst us will figure that out.  If not, they will go through life feeding on table scraps instead of steak.

Moore and I share one thing in common:  we both hail from the once great state of Michigan where unemployment is now roughly 15%.  Michigan is an economic train wreck primarily due to decades of the automobile industry and liberal government goons making anti-capitalism decisions that ultimately doomed my beloved home state.
 
Michigan is now paying the price for those suicidal decisions straight from the cult of denial, of which Moore is surely the high priest. Like really high.

Socialism has forever failed around the world to provide anything resembling justice or quality of life, but still Moore believes socialism is far superior to capitalism.  Moore believes more government, not less, is the answer.  Anyone with any economic sense of reality knows that socialism is a brain dead system that enslaves people instead of freeing them.

Ultimately, those who rail against capitalism are people who claim they need to be babysat, bailed out and subsidized. They are either uneducated, ignorant, unskilled, scared or -- for any number of reasons -- fatalists accepting to be ill equipped to compete in the economic arena where the entrepreneurial dust is swirling and the sweat of excellence is flying unabated.  

Instead of complimenting those who do compete in the economic arena, Moore, Obama and others of their ilk condemn and chastise the entrepreneurs instead of complimenting them. Mikey is czar of Bizzarro world.

Of course Moore and Obama are economic hypocrites, both of whom are probably multi-millionaires.  When justice and logic finally prevails, and Obama is booted from office, he will go on a speaking tour and write more books to make more piles of money.  Moore has made millions over the years, but do not think for a minute that he has volunteered any of it towards the increased taxes he claims to believe in.

Mikey does not live in a small clapboard house back in Flint, Michigan in order to help the needy.  

Capitalists want everyone to apply their God-given talents in the market place.  I want everyone to have stacks of cash and become wealthy.  Only in America can this still be achieved.  Go and get you some of it.

However, when economic dolts and hypocrites like Moore and Obama telling people that they can not succeed without Fedzilla babysitting them, what they really want is to further enslave Americans instead of removing the economic shackles that enslave them.  They are economic elitists and dangerous anti-American hypocrites. They are allergic to truth, logic and common sense.

Socialism and "spreading the wealth around" is bad economic medicine.  The sooner we toss these doomed policies onto the left wing junk heap the sooner Americans can reach their full potential and become wealthy like Michael Moore and President Obama.

Capitalism isn't evil as Moore's film reportedly concludes.  It is perfect if you are addicted to freedom and being the best you can be, like our forefathers intended. It's so simple, it's stupid. Unless of course, you are stupid.

 

Thank Heaven for Obama's Unwitting Little Favors!

Conservative Grassroots Movement Ignited by Obama’s Policies on Healthcare, Economy
By David A. Patten
NewsMax.com
 

This summer's raucous healthcare debate may cause President Obama a lingering headache due to the explosive growth it triggered in grassroots, Internet-based groups that are able to mobilize their enthusiastic legions at the touch of a button.

The spontaneous and rapid expansion of conservative networking sites, largely in response to the president's plans to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," has just begun to impact the well-laid plans of D.C. politicos.

Grassfire.org, Tea Party Patriots, Resistnet.com, the 912Project, and SmartGirlPolitics all report that voters' profound alarm over off-the-charts federal spending, combined with new social-networking tools, have lit a grassfire among the conservative grassroots.

New Web sites, e-mail campaigns, and social-networking groups are springing up on an almost daily basis. And these "silent majority" activists aren't satisfied with just shooting off angry e-mails to their congressional representatives, either.

This summer's effective mobilization of grassroots conservatives and town hall protesters, initially dismissed by Beltway skeptics as "Astroturf" demonstrations financed by the GOP or self-interested corporations, has progressed so rapidly that it now threatens to alter not only policy debates, but future electoral outcomes as well.

"What I have seen in the last two months," says national Grassfire coordinator Darla Dawald, "is people really getting involved. And I think it has had so much to do with the healthcare debate … "It's mobilizing people. They see the government is getting off course. They thought they elected people who would run the government the right way, and they thought they were doing their part and being responsible. But they found out they've been wrong. They didn't vote in the right people. They didn't stay on top of their government. And now they're seeing how that will affect them."

Grassfire.org – the site founded in 2001 by Internet political guru Steve Elliott to distribute "citizen action alerts" on important legislative issues -- decided last fall to establish a social networking site where people could coordinate efforts with like-minded folks in their own region, sharing news of upcoming events.

The result: Resistnet, a full-fledged social-networking site with many of the features found on sites such as Facebook or MySpace, including personal profiles and "friend requests."

Resistnet launched in mid-December and leveraged off Grassfire's 1.5 million members to quickly enlist 20,000 supporters within six weeks -- a very successful launch.

Then came Rick Santelli's "rant heard round the world" in February. The CNBC correspondent's monologue of rage from the floor of Chicago's CME exchange struck a tender nerve in the nation's body politic.

"How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor's mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can't pay their mortgage?" Santelli asked traders on the floor of the exchange. Their collective response: A loud round of boos directed at the Obama administration's $787 billion stimulus bailout plan.

"President Obama, are you listening?!!" Santelli fairly bellowed on live TV.

"When that happened in February," Dawald tells Newsmax, "the whole tea party movement went viral very quickly."

Santelli's suggestion for a tea party protest caught on, and soon each big-government proposal emanating from Washington -- the auto-industry takeover, energy cap and trade, and healthcare reform -- served only to further bolster the digital grassroots' ranks.

The growth of conservative grassroots groups on the Internet further accelerated when the healthcare debate began to pick up in earnest about two months ago, sources say.

Today, barely nine months after launch, more than 61,000 conservatives have joined and created Resistnet profiles. Most of them also have enlisted in various state, regional, and topical sub-groups on the site. These aren't folks who just log on to receive the occasional e-mail alert, either.

From tea party protests to town hall meetings to the impressive 912Project's turnout at Freedom Plaza on Saturday, grassroots conservatives involved in social networking have proven that they are willing to do what it takes to stand up and have their voices heard.

"I think this is huge," says Scott Graves, the former president and editor-in-chief of RedCounty.com who runs his own new media consultancy in online development. "What I've seen is this: A true movement away from what we would call traditional media, and a complete emersion and embrace of new media, at all levels of the demographic spectrum and in all levels of the political spectrum.

"Information flow is so easy," Graves tells Newsmax. "Technology has come of age. It's kind of a perfect storm if you will … more people involved, better technology, and so much technology out there now that people can choose how they want their information delivered to them."

Most notably, the grassroots Internet groups -- which transcend party lines -- appear to be bridging the vast gap between having a political opinion and becoming a conservative-movement activist.

Teri Christoph is a stay-at-home mother of four who, along with blogger Staci Mott, co-founded the brassy, up-and-coming social networking site SmartGirlPolitics about 10 months ago. It gives conservative women a way to participate in "a conservative women's movement."

The key, Christoph says, is the site's ability to help women network with others. Social networking has helped women who are political newcomers overcome the barriers that might otherwise discourage them from expressing their views and attending rallies.

"Knowing you're not out there alone, knowing others are going to a meeting too, sharing information, and then sharing experiences on how they might better handle events in the future -- it gives you courage to go out and do it again," Christoph tells Newsmax. "Because if you've never done it before, it's really daunting to get out there and be active. But it's a great thing to be part of, and it's very exciting."

SmartGirlPolitics grew gradually and really took off over the summer, according to Christoph. The social networking site now has about 11,200 members, plus another 7,000 followers on Facebook.

Ironically, sites like SmartGirlPolitics and Resistnet rely on many of the same Internet tools that then-candidate Obama used in November to help him win the election. Those technologies are now being used to block his agenda. Conservative Internet groups link to each others' Web sites, collaborate on joint events, and share information and resources to help the entire movement be more effective. And grassroots conservatives tell Newsmax they're planning to push political networking to a whole new level.

"The liberals have been using the Internet a long time, and doing it better," Dawald tells Newsmax. "But we've got to use technology to our benefit. We can't just do it the same old way. We've got to find a way to use this technology to make an impact…. We have to take the technology available to us and make it work for what we're doing."

One of the latest events to bolster the conservative grassroots movement: The left's attack on Fox talk host Glenn Beck for his pointed criticism of President Obama.

Initially, it looked like progressive organizations might bulldoze Beck's advertisers via a petition drive and boycott. Then a citizen's army of Beck supporters went to work, launching several Web sites such as DefendGlenn.com and SupportGlenBeck.com; creating pro-Beck Facebook and meet-up groups; and organizing a grassroots lobbying effort to pressure advertisers to stand strong and not cave in.

"When someone like Glenn Beck comes along willing to stand up and says what he believes in, says that you should ask your government tough questions, it makes him a very strong resource for the conservative movement," observes Dawald.

"We just exploded," Christoph says of the pro-Beck backlash. "I had no idea Glenn Beck had such a passionate following. We created a sub-group three or four weeks, and it's grown to three or four hundred members. It just gets new members every day."

Some conservative bloggers have suggested the attack on Beck was really triggered by his revelations about Van Jones, Obama administration's green-jobs czar, who also happens to be a co-founder and former executive of the Color of Change organization orchestrating the anti-Beck boycott. After mobilizing to defend Beck, the conservative grassroots movement is stronger than ever.

Interestingly enough, the mainstream media largely ignored Van Jones' inflammatory statements until his participation in the "9/11 truther" movement came to light. His resignation caught them by surprise.

To which Seton Motley, the director of communications for the Media Research Center, remarked: "Since the old media didn't cover it, and he was forced to resign, that's another victory for the new media, wouldn't you say?"

This year's summer of grassroots discontent did change one thing: Progressives have largely given up trying to dismiss grassroots conservative protests as mere Astroturf.

"I know that has to be scary for the left," Christoph says of the growth of Internet grassroots conservatism, "because it's very real. It's real people taking the time off from work to go to a meeting -- which is a big thing -- and attending events and getting their voices heard. They're not just sitting behind their computers ranting and raving."

Oh, the Internet activists offer a friendly word of warning to politicians planning to run in 2010: Resistnet users are organizing themselves down to the congressional precinct level.

Senator Casey,
 
Nothing in your response to me is factual as clearly you haven't read the bills of record to date.  Moreover, your response is nothing more than Dem talking points designed to con those who haven't read the aforementioned bills. 
 
We have, Senator Casey.    Those who truly love their country are not about to let a litany of most heinous legislation to ever come before a Congress destroy it.   We care about the future of a country fit to live in for our children and grandchildren if you don't. 


How can you talk about meaningful health care reform without tort reform, without the ability to buy private insurance across state lines? 
 
The CBO is on record as stating that this bill will already break the bank of our economy that was long since broken by the astronomical debt Obama has already caused.  How in the heck is this country going to recover from a REAL unemployment rate of almost 17% when this farce of a death care masquerading as health care bill that you're promoting has evolved into nothing more than a tax bill where, incredibly, if you don't do when Obama orders, you will pay a fine of almost 4000 dollars. 


Is that American Senator Casey? 
 
How can Americans take charge of their own health care when Obama's bill will turn the government into a competitor that will drive out all private competition which is already IN THE BILL, Senator, which, clearly, YOU HAVE NOT READ?
 
How can Americans take over their own health care when the government mandates doctors give them end of life counseling by providing a monetary incentive contrary to what they might want?  Don't you think that's taking advantage of seniors, Senator Casey? 


You talk about diminishing health care if Obama's bill isn't past.  Why, then, Senator Casey, have three presidents of the Canadian Medical Association decried their system which Obama considers a model as evidence of major health care problems surface with millions awaiting surgery and millions more awaiting referral by specialists for surgery? 
 
Where are the quality doctors going to come from, Mr. Casey, when the government starts dictating how they can treat their patients via rationing which will be the only alternative to reduce costs?  Is that upholding the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm?  Is that what you call health care, Senator Casey?  If it is, just what planet have you been living on?
 
How dare you talk about endangering America's fiscal health when you totally ignore what Obama has done to date that puts that destruction on the fast track given the aforementioned skyrocketing debt which will increase by an order of magnitude if his insane legislation is passed? 
 
You're taxing the citizenry into oblivion Senator Casey.  Don't you care about that?  Don't you care about the debt you're putting on our children and grandchildren?
 
You quote something that says no penalty for not getting health care.  That does not jive with what Senator Baucus is on record of saying, nor does it jive with HR 3200 which virtually eliminated private competition on pg 16 of that bill, I seem to recall, which will have to be reconciled with whatever the senate comes out with.
 
Yes, there needs to be healthcare reform, Sen. Casey, but there doesn't need to be the destruction of the best health care system in the world to get it. 
 
Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security are broke, Senator Casey, and on top of this, we're now staring at a debacle of a health care bill that will do nothing but leave millions of uninsured still on the rolls and drive up the debt even further.  That is unconscionable, Senator Casey.  Sane people can't support such insane legislation, and sane people are going to be voted into office replacing the insane in the not too distant future. 
 
That's something that you and your Democratic colleagues who are hell-bent are destroying this country from within can take to the bank.

Dear Mr. Morella:
 
Thank you for taking the time to contact me about health care reform. I appreciate hearing from all Pennsylvanians about the issues that matter most to them.
 
We cannot afford to wait any longer to reform America’s health care system. As a member of the United States Senate and the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, I am working with my colleagues and with President Obama to enact meaningful health care reform, with the goal of providing every American with access to high quality, affordable health care. Ensuring the unique health needs of children are met is also a specific priority of mine in health care reform. Many of my constituents have contacted me to share their opinions on a wide range of potential health care reform options. I welcome your comments and suggestions on this important issue.
 
On July 15, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) successfully reported out our bill, the Affordable Health Choices Act, to reform the Nation’s healthcare system. At its core, this landmark bill provides additional choices for Americans who need health insurance, while maintaining current health insurance options that individuals may wish to keep.
 
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Affordable Health Choices Act will cost $611 billion over the next ten years. Our current system is not sustainable and waiting to act or doing nothing will only make the problems worse. Without health care reform, the cost of insurance for the average Pennsylvania family will be $26,679 in 2015, almost 52% of the projected median family income. If we do not act, more people will lose coverage: between January 2008 and December 2010, 178,520 individuals in Pennsylvania are projected to lose coverage. As costs increase, the quality of care will diminish and the ballooning costs incurred by the government and business will endanger America’s fiscal health. The Affordable Health Choices Act will reduce costs by emphasizing prevention, cutting waste and modernizing the health care system through quality information technology.
 
The Affordable Health Choices Act also promotes prevention by giving Americans the information they need to take charge of their own health, such as information on early screening for heart disease, cancer and diabetes, and information on healthy nutrition and preventive care. The Affordable Health Choices Act takes strong steps to improve America’s healthcare workforce, making sound investments in training the doctors, nurses, and other health professionals who will serve the needs of patients in the years to come and ensuring that patients’ care is better coordinated so they see the right doctors, nurses and other health practitioners to address their individual health needs.
 
To address the need for more choices for Americans, The Affordable Health Choices Act includes a public health insurance option called the Community Health Insurance Plan. This plan will be one of many plans available to individuals through the Affordable Health Benefit Gateways that will be established in states and, in some cases, regions. The Gateways are like Expedia for health insurance: you will be able to compare different plans easily and pick the one that works for you. These gateways build on the success of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), which provides a range of different health plans from which to choose to federal employees including civilian employees, Members of Congress and their staffs, retirees and their families. The Affordable Health Benefit Gateways will provide cost-sharing and risk-pooling benefits to all Americans comparable to the FEHBP.


The Community Health Insurance Plan will be required to comply with the same rules governing private plans offered through the health insurance gateways, and will comply with the same insurance regulations as private insurers. The Affordable Health Choices Act states clearly in Section 3106, paragraph 2: “NO REQUIREMENT FOR INDIVIDUALS TO JOIN.— Nothing in this section shall be construed to require an individual to participate in a community health insurance option, or to impose any penalty for non-participation.” No individual will be required to join the public option at any time.
 
The Committee on Finance, of which I am not a member, has jurisdiction over other areas of health care reform, such as Medicaid and Medicare, and is in the process of developing its own draft legislation. After the Committee on Finance has finished developing and considering its health care reform legislation, the bill will be merged with the Affordable Health Choices Act for consideration by the full Senate this fall.
 
For more information about the health care reform legislation Congress is considering, and to read the text and summaries of the bills, please visit my blog at http://casey.senate.gov/about/blog/.
 
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about this or any other matter of importance to you.
 
If you have access to the Internet, I encourage you to visit my web site, http://casey.senate.gov. I invite you to use this online office as a comprehensive resource to stay up-to-date on my work in Washington, request assistance from my office or share with me your thoughts on the issues that matter most to you and to Pennsylvania.
 
Sincerely,
Bob Casey
United States Senator

Health Care Debate Continues

Melanie Palazzo
Federal Relations
September 14, 2009

 

We saw President Obama address the nation in a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, September 9, 2009, continuing to push for passage of his health care plan. The following Saturday, September 12, 2009, a crowd met the president in Minneapolis to listen again to his plan, while another crowd met in Washington, D.C. to protest the plans proposed by Congress.


The Senate Finance Committee has announced that it will publish its version of the health care bill this week and will vote on it the next week. Three committees in the House of Representatives had voted on their version of the bill before recess and will soon schedule it for a vote on the House floor.


Home School Legal Defense Association is very concerned about H.R. 3200, the House version of the health care bill, because we see it as a dangerous threat to parental rights. Specifically, the large amount of power H.R. 3200 would hand over to the federal government, and the creation of government-funded home visitation programs. These programs would allow government workers into private homes to teach parents how to raise their children according to government deemed age-appropriate behavior.


For a detailed legislative analysis of H.R. 3200 visit our legislative summary page.


We urge you to call, write letters and emails to your representatives and two senators, as well as write letters to the editor (congressional offices do read them) and comment on blogs to express your opinions on this bill.


You can find the contact information for the local offices of your elected officials by visiting HSLDA’s Legislative Toolbox and putting in your ZIP code. You can also call the office nearest you and ask to meet with a staff member from your representative or senators’ offices to talk about the health care bill.
Please contact HSLDA’s Federal Relations Department at federalrelations@hslda.org or 540-338-5600 if you have any additional questions.

Networks Ignore Push for Repeal of DOMA
ABC, CBS and NBC continue pattern of whitewashing gay issues.

by Colleen Raezler, Culture and Media Institute

 

Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York introduced a new threat to traditional marriage on September 15 – a bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

 

News of Nadler’s plan to introduce the Respect for Marriage Act broke late last week, but ABC, CBS and NBC all failed to report this latest push for forced acceptance of same-sex marriage. Although the health care reform debate has gobbled up media attention for weeks, the networks’ silence on the fundamental issue of how the federal government defines marriage is odd.

 

Nadler’s bill would overturn the 1996 law signed by President Bill Clinton that defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman. 

 

A September 15 press release issued by Nadler’s office claimed the bill has 91 original co-sponsors. Nadler stated in the release, “With a President who is committed to repealing DOMA and a broad, diverse coalition of Americans on our side, we now have a real opportunity to remove from the books this obnoxious and ugly law.”

 

Not all Democrats agreed with Nadler. The Washington Blade reported on September 11 that Rep. Barney Frank, an openly gay Democrat from Massachusetts is not supporting Nadler’s effort to overturn DOMA. “It’s not anything that’s achievable in the near term,” Frank said. The New York Times reported September 15 that Speaker Nancy Pelosi “also indicated this year that repealing the law would not be a top priority.”

 

ABC, CBS and NBC failed to take interest in the story, even with the added twist of intra-party (and even intra-administration) division over the bill. None of the networks have discussed this issue since President Obama’s inauguration, despite his repeated calls during the 2008 campaign to repeal DOMA and despite a 54-page brief filed in support of DOMA by his Justice Department in June.

 

The brief, filed in the California case Smelt v. United States that challenged DOMA, outraged gay rights activists because, as reported by the Washington Post, it “appeared to equate same-sex marriage with incest and pedophilia” and the lawyers referred to marriage between a man and a woman as “the traditional and universally recognized form.”

 

Importance of DOMA

 

DOMA did not simply define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. It banned the federal recognition of same-sex marriages. It also protects states from being forced to recognize same-sex marriages that took place in other states.

 

“DOMA is the only federal law that protects marriage as the union of husband and wife, and guarantees voters in Georgia or Wisconsin that a handful of judges in Massachusetts will not be able to impose gay marriage on their state,” noted Maggie Gallagher, president and founder of the National Organization for Marriage.

 

Bryan Fischer, director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association, focused his criticism of Nadler’s efforts on the issue of states’ rights.

 

“People in state after state have made it clear that they do not want either Congress or activist judges tampering with the time-honored institution of marriage,” he stated in a September 15 press release. “People who care about the institution of marriage and care about their own state’s Tenth Amendment right to decide this issue for themselves should be outraged at this frontal assault on the cornerstone of American society and on the democratic process itself.”

 

Not Ignored in Print

 

While the networks have ignored DOMA, the editorial boards of The Washington Post and The New York Times urged the administration to overturn the law as soon as possible.

 

The Justice Department brief filed in June that supported DOMA inspired the Times’ Frank Rich to write on June 28, “Obama’s inaction on gay civil rights is striking. So is his utterly uncharacteristic inarticulateness. The Justice Department brief defending DOMA has spoken louder for this president than any of his own words on the subject.”

 

James Kirchick, assistant editor of the New Republic and a contributing writer to the Advocate, questioned Obama’s commitment to same-sex marriage. “When it comes to same-sex marriage, the movement can’t count on support from the current president,” Kirchick wrote. “Obama’s stance on gay marriage is virtually indistinguishable from that of John McCain,” he later charged.

 

The Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart gave Obama more cover in his June 21 editorial. “The first substantive comment on gay and lesbian equality since he took office was the Justice Department’s noxious brief in Arthur Smelt and Christopher Hammer v United States of America, and it fueled suspicion that the president was backpedaling on his promises.” Capehart later urged gays and lesbians to look to Congress to achieve their “big victories, such as the repeal of DOMA and the ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy.”

 

On August 18, the Post reported that “the Obama administration distanced itself” from the Justice Department’s June brief regarding DOMA.

 

A follow-up brief filed August 17 in the Smelt v. United States case did not contain the language that had inflamed gay rights activists. But as reported by the Post, “Senior trial counsel W. Scott Simpson embraced findings by researchers and prominent medical groups, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association and the American Medical Association, in saying ‘that children raised by gay and lesbian parents are as likely to be well-adjusted as children raised by heterosexual parents.”

 

DOMA, the administration’s defense of it and the subsequent backing away from the defense, were not discussed on ABC, CBS, or NBC..

 

The networks habitually refused to cover DOMA-related news, as indicated by this year’s lack of coverage and also their refusal to report Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s firm 2008 statement of support for the repeal of DOMA.

 

This of course, is not to say that the networks refuse to cover news related to gay rights. Networks promoted same-sex marriage through the constant airing of Prop 8 protest footage in the days following the 2008 election.

 

Networks’ Disservice

 

ABC, CBS and NBC committed a grave disservice to the American public by refusing to cover the issue of DOMA. The repeal of such a law has serious implications for society and culture.

 

Networks repeatedly proved their liberal bias. But at least in that, viewers knew something occurred and had the opportunity to seek out supplemental information. In the case of DOMA, viewers most likely haven’t realized the very definition of traditional marriage is at stake.

 

 

 

Cartoon and Reminder to Get Out the Calls‏

Dear Champion of Parental Rights,


According to a UNESCO statement from some years ago, "It is often the family that infects the children with extreme nationalism." 
A love for one's country is to be treated like some kind of disease, lest it hinder the goal of "peace at all costs."


Under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the government is obligated to ensure that children are "brought up in the spirit of the ideals proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations."


This is one more reason it is vital to get out the calls this week, urging Congressmen and Senators to cosponsor the Parental Rights Amendment, which will protect our rights from this dangerous treaty. Here again is what we ask you to do:


1.       Check our lists of House cosponsors and Senate cosponsors. If your representative is already a sponsor, don’t call them! Consider mailing them a message of thanks instead.


2.       If your congressman or senator is not on our list, go to our States Watch page and click on your state to find their contact information.


3.       Call your congressman and ask him to sign on to cosponsor H.J. Res. 42, the Parental Rights Amendment, to protect parental rights and American and state sovereignty.


4.       Call your senators and urge them to cosponsor S.J. Res. 16, the Parental Rights Amendment, to protect parental rights and American and state sovereignty.


5.       Call or email friends and family and urge them to get in on this campaign as well. Let’s make this a very busy week for the Capitol switchboard!


6.       Consider volunteering time to our Get-Out-the-Call campaign to encourage even more people to call Congress this week. Email Eric Lansing for more information.


7.       You can also download a Get-Out-the-Calls brochure here to share with friends.


8.       Please forward this email to anyone else who might join in to call Congress this week, or simply to anyone who might enjoy the cartoon at the top!
