Obama's Homosexual "Safe School Czar" Tells God "Screw You, Buddy" in Memoir

By Peter J. Smith
 
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 24, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - He is known to the United States as the "Safe Schools Czar:" a special advisor in the White House responsible for helping formulate policies designed to keep US public schools "safe and drug free."
But US pro-family leaders know Kevin Jennings as something more: a highly influential homosexual activist, who admitted in a book on his childhood that a deep-seated hatred of God and religious believers began when he fully embraced a homosexual lifestyle and bid God farewell with the words, "Screw you, buddy."
 
Jennings's official position within the Obama Administration is the Assistant Deputy Secretary, who directs the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools under US Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Duncan is a veteran of Chicago's public school system, who proposed and approved controversial plans for a special public high school designed for homosexuals.
 
Jennings brings to the Education Department his experience as the cofounder and executive director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), where in keeping with that organization's mission, he concentrated his energies on developing and advocating classroom curricula for public schools that would re-educate school-children to embrace homosexuality. As a key part of their strategy to advance their agenda and change the culture, GLSEN leaders say they specifically target children as young as kindergarten in order to begin a "saturation process," that forms the imagination with positive impressions of the homosexual lifestyle, and so pre-cognitively influences the way a child perceives the world and makes judgments on right and wrong.
 
Bill Donohue, a civil rights leader and President of the Catholic League, stated that Kevin Jennings "has a history of bashing Christians" which appears deeply rooted in his decision at 17 years-old that he was a homosexual and God was to blame for his feelings of guilt and shame.
 
Donohue draws the conclusion from Jennings's own book called "Mama's Boy, Preacher's Son: A Memoir," published in 2006 by Beacon Press, which deals with his upbringing by his father, the Baptist minister, and his mother, the non-believer and anti-Catholic. Jennings writes that he came to this "new attitude toward God" following a masturbatory experience that was prompted by fantasies of two "hot guys" taking off their shirts in his home.
 
"Before, I was the one who was failing God; now I decided He was the one who had failed me," wrote Jennings. "I decided I had done nothing wrong: He had, by promising to 'set you free' and never delivering on His promise. What had He done for me, other than make me feel shame and guilt? Squat. Screw you, buddy - I don't need you around anymore, I decided."
 
Jennings concludes by saying that for years afterwards he "reacted violently to anyone who professed any kind of religion" and it would be decades later before he opened a Bible again.
 
But Jennings still retains contempt for observant believers on what he calls "the religious right."
In fact, Jennings told a gathering of fellow activists in 2000 that conservative-minded Christians were "hard-core bigots" who should "drop dead." But the GLSEN founder had the group laughing by telling them he really wanted to just say to them: "f*** you!"
 
Jennings was also on the board of advisers for a 2001 PBS documentary-style film that slammed the Boy Scouts of America for their policy of excluding homosexuals from their membership and was promoted at "gay pride" festivals to mobilize homosexuals against the Scouts.
 
Further concern has arisen about Jennings concerning his history as a former drug abuser, and as a school counselor back in 1988, who failed to report a sexually active homosexual relationship between an adult and a boy, then a sophomore high school student. Instead Jennings counseled the boy named "Brewster" on maintaining the relationship with the adult, which began in a bus stop bathroom.

During his tenure as GLSEN's executive director, Jennings also promoted homosexual conferences that featured GLSEN presenters hosting extremely graphic and detailed workshops to teenagers about all the mechanics and variations of homosexual intercourse.

LES FEMMES - THE TRUTH] The People of Manassas, VA are Under Siege by these ...‏

If you want to see a movement of hate visit the Mexica Movement website. They want ethnic cleansing of those with white, European backgrounds. They eulogize the methods of murderer John Brown who wanted to use black slaves to mount a revolution killing men, women, and children in the South. These are racist revolutionaries defining "good" whites and "bad" whites by who adopts their cause.

This is scary stuff filled with hatred.

Watch this second video that claims those opposing the illegal day laborer sites in Manassas are racist. But look at the destruction of neighborhoods -- the trash and the gang grafitti. This is one of the consequences of illegal immigration. If you lived in a development where illegals were crowding 30 people into the four-bedroom house next door, how would you feel? Would you let your little children play in the yard or take their scooters out on the sidewalk? This is happening in neighborhoods in northern Virginia. Americans are paying a big price for illegal immigration and so are illegals themselves who are often the target of the criminal element in their midst.

How many countries allow foreigners to just walk in, stay, and take advantage of taxpayer benefits. NONE! NOT ONE! And if we're so evil, why do they want to be here anyway? Illegal immigration is doing serious damage to this country,
but those supporting amnesty and open borders plan to register all these folks as democrats. Some of the people angriest about this are LEGAL IMMIGRANTS who waited in line and came in by the rules. Now they are discriminated against in favor of illegals.

Dems Vote To Hide ObamaCare Bill From You

From:

 GrassTopsUSA (Christopher@grasstopsusa.org)

     Senators are negotiating on Senator Max Baucus' ObamaCare 6.0 proposal and it hasn't even been written yet

     Of course, to state the obvious, the fact that they're negotiating on something that hasn't been written means no one has read it yet either.

    
And, to add even more insult to injury, it’s now clear they have no intention of letting you read it.

     You read that right. On an almost straight party-line vote, Democrats in the Senate Finance Committee squashed an amendment by Senator Jim Bunning that would have required Baucus’ ObamaCare bill to be posted on the Internet – for all Americans to read – for 72 hours prior to the Committee voting on it.

     Not only that. Bunning’s amendment also called for requiring the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office’s official tally of how much Baucus’ ObamaCare 6.0 will cost the American people and what the real impact will be on health costs to be released before the it was voted on.

     It's as plain as the nose on your face.

    
They're leaving the door wide-open to pass Baucus' ObamaCare 6.0 proposal in the dead of night... under the cover of darkness… without even telling you and other concerned Americans what it will cost and how it will affect your health care.

     But what really takes the cake is that even after those shenanigans, some Senate Republicans are still going out of their way to play Let’s-Make-A-Deal on Senator Max Baucus’ ObamaCare 6.0 socialized health care scheme.

     They're actually fighting tooth-and-nail, not to stop ObamaCare but to negotiate a so-called compromise on this Obama-Baucus scheme to socialize the nation’s health care system.

     And that's just one more reason why we must tell our elected officials, right here and right now, that the American people don't want any more negotiations or deals or compromises.

     We want ObamaCare off the table and we want it off the table now.





ObamaCare 6.0: A Stunning Assault On Liberty.


     If the previous versions of government-run ObamaCare made you angry… Senator Max Baucus’ ObamaCare 6.0 is likely to make your blood boil.

     Much like its predecessors, the Baucus health care reform plan is chock-full of provisions calling for new government mandates, higher taxes, increased spending and government-dictated, rationed health care.

     In fact, it’s so bad that Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl said of Baucus’ plan:
“This is a stunning assault on liberty!”

     Senator Kyl is right. And, the really sad part is this:

     As previously stated, the Baucus bill hasn’t even been written yet, much less read by the Senators who are doing the negotiating.

     It’s nothing more than a 200-plus-page shell of ideas to be rammed down the throats of the American people with all deliberate speed... before you and other concerned Americans have the time to find out what hit you.

     Senator Lindsay Graham, speaking on FOX News, probably gave the best explanation of what exactly is going on: 
“[T]he Baucus bill… literally changes everyday… we’re making this up as we go… they’re trying to buy votes… the vision here is to pass something… they don’t give a damn what it is and nobody understands what they’re doing.”

     These so-called leaders just don’t get it. Republicans and Democrats are quibbling over what type of government-run health care they believe to be best for you and your family and no one is fighting for the American people.

     The American people for months have been sending the message loud and clear that they want no part of ObamaCare, period, regardless of what form it takes. The American people have been telling politicians in Washington that no amount of so-called
"compromise" will make Obama’s government-run health care scheme acceptable or palatable.

     And yet, one of the only things keeping ObamaCare alive is the fact that some Republicans, under the veil of
“negotiations,” are keeping it alive.

     It’s time for these politicians to finally get the message. The American people do not want them to
“fix” ObamaCare… no more so-called ObamaCare compromises”… the American people want ObamaCare gone… never to be heard from again.





They Don't Want You To Read The Bill, But Will They Read The Bill?


     The Baucus plan, right now, as you read this letter, is rapidly advancing in the Senate – even though the bill hasn’t actually been written and none of the Senators working on it have actually read it.

     And, as previously stated, it’s now clear they have no intention of letting you read it either.  Here’s what Michael Franc wrote on the Heritage Foundation’s blog, The Foundry:

“During the Senate Finance Committee mark up of the Baucus health bill … Senator Bunning of Kentucky put forth an innovative amendment. This amendment stipulated that before voting on the measure in Committee, legislative language would have to be accessible to the public for 72 hours and that the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) would need to publish an official tally of how much this bill will cost the American people and what the real impact will be on health costs."

     Franc continued:

“The amendment failed 11-12 on nearly a party line vote. Senator Blanche Lincoln (AR) was the sole Democrat to support this attempt at transparency. The bottom line: when the committee completes its work on this re-make of one-sixth of our economy, Senators will have voted on a phantom - a bill that does not exist with costs that are unknowable until, that is, the unelected legislative draftsmen write the real bill in some back room on Capitol Hill.” [Emphasis Mine]

     Remember what Senator Graham said:
“the vision here is to pass something… they don’t give a damn what it is and nobody understands what they’re doing.”

     Fortunately, the American people are one step ahead of of our elected officials this time around.

     They believe they can work behind closed doors and try to repackage government-run health care and seal it with a nice pretty bow.

     But in the end, the American people are on to their game, we won’t be fooled and we can stop them.

     No more
"negotiating"… no more "compromising"… it’s time to stop ObamaCare once and for all.





Socialized Health Care Delivered Under A Christmas Tree Filled With Pricey Ornaments…


     FOX News anchor Neil Cavuto summed up the mad dash to pass government-run health care – and specifically Baucus’ ObamaCare 6.0:

“Christmas may be months away but that ain’t stopping Senators from trying to outdo each other on health care… all sorts of pricey ornaments… 564 amendments… the pace of this is startling.”

     Like the alcoholic who swears he will never take another drink, only to succumb to temptation the very next day, politicians in Washington lead us to believe that they got the message loud and clear... they lead us to believe they would stop ObamaCare.

    But instead of stopping ObamaCare cold, they rushed to make deals and propose amendments the second Senator Baucus unveiled his proposal.

     Even Senator Hatch, while calling for a so-called
“bi-partisan solution” to ObamaCare, inadvertently stated the case as to why continued negotiations on ObamaCare are a dangerous thing:

“Everything is geared to try to get us to a single payer system… if they can’t do it automatically… they’ll do it in increments… a one size fits all health care system right out of Washington.”

     Simply put, any compromise that is reached… any deal that is negotiated will simply lead us down the road to government-run, rationed health care for all.

     Some will try to tell you that negotiation is simply a strategy… that it is perhaps the only way to stop ObamaCare.

     But the truth of the matter is, ObamaCare never needs to come out of the Senate Finance Committee… it never has to see the light of day.

     Rule 4 of the Rules of Procedure for the Senate Finance Committee reads:
“Rule 4. Quorums. - (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) one-third of the membership of the committee, including not less than one member of the majority party and one member of the minority party, shall constitute a quorum for the conduct of business.”

     That means, at least one Republican Senator on the Finance Committee needs to be in attendance in order to pass any legislation out of committee.

     In other words, 10 Republican Senators (Charles Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Olympia Snowe, Jon Kyl, Jim Bunning, Mike Crapo, Pat Roberts, John Ensign, Mike Enzi and John Cornyn) could stop ObamaCare cold right now by simply saying they will not support it under any circumstances.

     If those 10 Senators would simply say
“no,” and deny Democrats on the Finance Committee a quorum; ObamaCare would be done… finished… it would die in committee... but you won’t hear that on the nightly news.

     And yet, instead of finding a way to convince these 10 Republicans to stand firm in their opposition to ObamaCare, we’re told it’s more prudent solution to negotiate and make a deal with the opposition and hopefully cushion the blow of something that never has to happen in the first place.

     Only in Washington D.C. does such a thing seem even remotely rational.  It’s time to tell these Senate Republicans to get serious about stopping ObamaCare.





Where Have We Seen This Insanity Before?


     If this dysfunctional willingness on the part of Republican Senators to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory... to
"compromise" on a battle that could be won outright... sounds familiar, it should.

     It's happened before. It seems like only yesterday that our elected officials tried to ram amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens down the throats of the American people.

     Back then, the American people, in resounding numbers (Republicans, Democrats and Independents), told our elected officials to just say
"no" to amnesty.

     And each time the American people spoke up, our elected officials tried to produce so-called
"compromise legislation" ... and they alternately tried to sell it to us or ram it down our throats.

     But the American didn't let them get away with it. We all knew that each so-called
“compromise” was just as egregious as the first amnesty bill... a few words were changed but every proposal essentially led to amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

     Do you remember their very last attempt to sell all of us on so-called
"compromise legislation?"

     Do you remember seeing that photograph in the paper of that group of Senators uproariously laughing and slapping each other on the back as they emerged from their closed-door negotiations?

     It was almost as if, when they emerged from that room, they were really laughing at all of us.

     Of course, back then, you took decisive action... you called... you faxed... and together we finally broke the back of those bogus amnesty compromises.

     You did it before. You can do it again. Now is the time to show your outrage. Make your voice heard now and we will defeat ObamaCare once and for all.


Use the hyperlink below to send your urgent Blast Fax messages to each and every Republican Member of the United States Senate - or alternately to President Barack Obama and each and every member of the House and Senate.

Demand that they listen to the American people and defeat ObamaCare once and for all. Tell them that no amount of so-called "compromise" will make government-run health care acceptable to the American people. Let them know that if they spent the same amount of energy to defeat ObamaCare as they are spending negotiating, the job would be done. Demand, once and for all, that they stop negotiating and win this fight against socialized health care for the American people.

Senate Democrats Stop Proposal to Halt President Obama's Pro-Abortion Czars

by Steven Ertelt

Add to My Yahoo!Email RSS Print

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Senate Democrats used a procedural tactic on Thursday to defeat a proposal

from Republicans to put a halt to President Barack Obama's czars, many of whom strongly support abortion and

euthanasia. The proposal would have halted any more federal funds for new czar positions without more information.


Republicans wanted Obama's czars to have to appear before Congress to testify about their views since they are not

subject to Senate approval.


The Obama administration, which already has 18 czars, argued such a move would violate the separation of powers.


The proposal said the Senate would be able to forward "reasonable" requests for testimony from the czars that would

require a detailed "public, written report" biannually of their actions and any involvement in the creation of law, policy

or regulations.


Democrats used a Senate rule that prohibits legislating on a spending bill, something that both parties normally do,

to prevent the proposal from being added.


Sen. Susan Collins, a pro-abortion Republican, sponsored the proposal and said she was "deeply disappointed" that

Senate Democrats used the rules to disallow it.


"My amendment has been carefully tailored to cover officials that the president has unilaterally designated for

 significant policy matters," she said.


Pro-life advocates have been concerned about the czar positions.


Cass Sunstein, who became Obama's new regulatory czar, holds pro-abortion and pro-human cloning views.

http://www.lifenews.com/bio2957.html


In a 2003 review of the book "Our Posthuman Future" by Francis Fukuyama, Sunstein confirmed he has little regard

for developing human life in the womb.


He said there need not be any regard for unborn children in their earliest days because human embryos are "only a

handful of cells."


Ezekiel Emanuel, health adviser to President Barack Obama, also came under scrutiny.


Emanuel, brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, has already been appointed to two key positions:

health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of the Federal Council on Comparative

Effectiveness Research. He clearly will play a role guiding the White House's health initiative.


He has been accused of supporting rationing and euthanasia. http://www.lifenews.com/bio2941.html


And John Holdren, whom Obama appointed to become Director of the White House Office of Science and

Technology Policy, was accused of backing forced abortions and population control.

A SORDID TALE ABOUT CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
Posted: Thursday September 24, 2009 at 3:49 pm EST by Judie Brown

 

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development has been at the center of more sleazy news reports over the years than anyone could possibly count. I remember when, for example, CCHD was deeply involved in funding the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. The now-infamous community organizing group, better known as ACORN, is the one that President Obama seems to have forgotten, even though he is, as Joseph Farah documents, “tied inextricably” to them.  
 
To its credit, CCHD severed ties with ACORN, but the concern is that it will continue to use the donations of faithful Catholics to advance an agenda that has little to do with what I, for one, consider to be genuine Catholic projects to benefit the less fortunate. 
 
Mary Ann Kreitzer recently blogged about the questionable CCHD, telling her readers,

 

While CCHD claims to be aiming at poverty's roots, it misses the mark. One of the greatest causes of poverty is the breakdown of the family. And yet browsing the CCHD grantees list, you would be hard-pressed to find a single "charity" that helps to strengthen the poor family. As for including the poor in the makeup and decision-making of groups, even that is questionable. VOICE in Virginia is an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation. It is primarily made up of affluent suburban Christians. In Catholic parishes (and presumably protestant churches as well), pastors strong-arm groups to attend the mass meetings and be the "voice" of the people. Among those out front, however, the identifiable voices are two "progressive" priests. It will be interesting to see if VOICE appears on the 2009 list of CCHD grantees. They are already diverting parish money for their liberal lobbying and will likely get their hand in the national till as well.
 

In a recently released report on CCHD, which was noted by the ever-vigilant LifeSiteNews.com, we learn that the CCHD is immersed in funding groups that support abortion, contraception, same-sex "marriage" and legalized prostitution. The report, which was published by the Bellarmine Veritas Ministry, gives examples, complete with documentation, of the many ways in which CCHD is using its money to undermine the principles of Catholic teaching. 
 
For example, the Bellarmine report says that the “Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco) has received CCHD funding for the last four years as a worker’s rights group. However, this organization publicly supports both abortion and same-sex marriage.”
 
Our dearly departed friend, Father Richard John Neuhaus, was always so profound and witty in his examination of problems such as this one with CCHD. Last year, he wrote, 
 

What most Catholics don’t know, and what would likely astonish them, is that CHD very explicitly does not fund Catholic institutions and apostolates that work with the poor. Part of the thinking when it was established in the ideological climate of the 1960s is that Catholic concern for the poor would not be perceived as credible if CHD funded Catholic organizations. Yes, that’s bizarre, but the history of CHD is bizarre. The bishops could really help poor people by promptly shutting down CHD and giving any remaining funds to, for instance, Catholic inner-city schools. In any event, if there is a collection at your parish this month, I suggest that you can return the envelope empty—and perhaps with a note of explanation—without the slightest moral hesitation.
 

You might notice that Father does not attribute the first “C” to the CCHD as he was under the false impression that the bishops had taken action and removed the word “Catholic” from the CCHD identity. Sadly, that is not the case.
 
What IS the case—and painfully obvious to me and many others—is that CCHD is so far gone that there is little hope of ever seeing them adhere to Catholic teaching, let alone provide support to only those organizations that deserve Catholic donations. Why the USCCB has not acknowledged this and dealt with it is a question I cannot answer, but the record speaks for itself.
 
We cannot, however, let this continue without a groundswell of grassroots response and action. I am therefore deeply grateful to our good pro-life friend, Fabiola Gergerich, a loyal pro-life activist and faithful Catholic for what follows. She e-mailed this note, and I now share it with the nation: 
 

On November 16-19, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will be having its fall assembly in Baltimore. On November 21-22, there is to be a collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
 
I ask that we be proactive by calling/e-mailing/writing our bishops to insist that they stop this fraud campaign once and for all! I am sure they can find some time in their fall assembly to discuss this great scandal to the Catholic Church. 
 
Those of you confirmed Catholics: Please remember that when we made our confirmation, we promised to be soldiers for Christ. Guess what? God is calling His army! We lay faithful can NO longer sit by and watch our beautiful Church be overrun with dissenters. Many of you stood up for our country by “protesting” at various tea parties, town halls and the 9/12 march. Now you must stand up for something more important—OUR Catholic Church. The time to act is now—not next week—but now!
 
"And then remember that you received the seal of the Spirit, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and godliness, and the spirit of holy fear, and preserve what you have received. God the Father has sealed you, Christ the Lord strengthened you and gave the earnest of the Spirit in your heart." —St. Ambrose, De Mysteriis 7, 42.
 
"With gifts and qualities such as these, we are equal to any task and capable of overcoming any difficulties." —Pope John Paul II, Address to the young people of Scotland, May 31, 1982.
 

In closing, I have to admit that the faithful Catholic, Ryan Ellis, is spot-on in his analysis of the CCHD debacle. The closing paragraphs of his “ACORN and the Catholic Church: A Legacy of Big Hearts and Small Brains” challenge even the most timid in our midst to take action now:
 

Today, the CCHD continues to state that ACORN receives no money, and that better safeguards are in place. However, one must ask the following questions:

1.    Why did anyone think it was a good idea to fund ACORN in the first place?
2.    Did those decision makers get fired, or are they still appropriating our money?
3.    Why would anyone be stupid enough to give to this collection ever again?
4.    Why haven’t the bishops disbanded CCHD, or at least made the collection optional for parishes?
 
Speaking for myself, I never gave to this (or any other) second collection, because I don’t trust that my money won’t be stolen from the big-hearted goops that work in Catholic charitable endeavors. There are lots of ACORNs out there, prowling about seeking the ruin of souls (at least the souls of the charity check-writers). Put simply, Catholic charitable endeavors cannot be trusted with my money. Neither can chanceries, since bishops obviously let their local CCHDs get out of hand.
 
Here is what I did, and what I would recommend to anyone. At my parish, 7 percent of the general collection every week is kicked upstairs to the diocese as a kind of tax or tribute. Because dollars are fungible, I don’t want that to happen with my money.  So, I give only to capital campaign collections at my parish, which all stays there. My pastor is happy to receive my contribution any way in which I feel comfortable, and I’ve fulfilled my canon law obligation to support my parish financially (221.1).
 

I suggest anyone concerned about the next dumb Catholic/smart ACORN strategy do the same. Hopefully, the Catholic Church hierarchy has learned, once again, that prudence is a cardinal virtue that informs the theological virtue of charity.
 
It is high time that we as Catholics, who defend Christ, defend life and defend the magisterium of the Catholic Church, really did put our money where our mouth is ... or in this case, put our money away until we find a charity worthy of our support. 

Judie Brown

What’s the Jamestown Project? Plus: Finding your “inner Obama”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2009 03:37 PM

Charisse Carney-Nunes, who originally posted the Burlington Township (NJ) elementary school Obama chant video, has not responded to requests for comment — though someone did remove the video from her account this morning, as I mentioned earlier today. I linked to her bio at the Jamestown Project, where she is Senior Vice President of Programs. (FYI: In this interview, she says she has accepted a job with the Obama administration’s Transportation Department.)

What’s the Jamestown Project? From its “About Us” section:

The Jamestown Project is a diverse action-oriented think tank of new leaders who reach across boundaries and generations to make democracy real. Founded and operated primarily by people of color and women, The Jamestown Project consists of scholars, activists, and communities who use five broad strategies to achieve our mission: generating new ideas; promoting meaningful public conversations and engagement; cultivating new leaders; formulating political strategy and public policy; and using cutting-edge communications techniques that reach a broad public.

From its curriculum guide for 3rd-5th graders:

Children Do Democracy Too is an outgrowth of our Doing Democracy work. The purpose of the initiative is to equip children with the knowledge and tools necessary to meaningfully participate in civil society and democracy. The central question we seek to answer is, “How do we instill the values of citizenship and active participation into the youngest, and in many ways the most important, members of our democracy?”

 

The Jamestown Project released A Children’s Curriculum for Civic Engagement in the Fall of 2008 as part of this initiative. The curriculum is based on our book I DREAM FOR YOU A WORLD: A COVENANT FOR OUR CHILDREN.

 

The Curriculum adapts the concepts from the book into lessons and activities to promote civic engagement to elementary aged children. Grades 3 – 5 are the optimal age for children to not only understand their place in the world, but also a time to begin to comprehend their power and potential to make a difference in their own lives, their family, their communities, and their country.

 

We are currently piloting the curriculum and seeking new partners to help us evaluate the program, share learning, and to strategize about achieving future goals.

Question: How many other public schools have “instilled the values of citizenship and active participation into the youngest” through Jamestown Project Senior VP Carney-Nunes’ Obama-chanting rituals?

Here’s at least one other school in Salem, NJ at which Carney-Nunes proselytized — even urging one student to keep looking for “that inner Obama:”

From the hard wooden chairs of the Salem Middle School auditorium, children shouted gleefully “I am Barack Obama!” here Tuesday, prompted by the renowned author who penned a book of the same name.

 

Charisse Carney-Nunes, a former classmate of the president’s at Harvard Law School, spent her birthday reading some of her collection to the third-grade class, the colorful pages emblazoned on a big-screen projector above her.

 

Her stories are of a hope that often finds confinement within the poverty-stricken city.

 

“The most important thing I think, and the reason the book is called I Am Barack Obama, is because I like when children say I am Barack Obama,” Carney-Nunes said. “They understand that there is a little bit of Barack Obama in all of us.”

 

Her latest endeavor captures the journey of Obama from childhood to the White House steps, offering that the power to change the world lies with all of us…It was the endless series of questions about Obama that Carney-Nunes received during school book tours last year that led to her latest venture, she pointed out.

 

“They just wanted to talk about Barack Obama,” she said. “I decided you know what, it would be easiest if I just wrote a book.

 

At the end of the program, each child received a copy of Carney-Nunes publication. At least one was signed with a message to keep looking for that inner-Obama.

***

Fun fact: Carney-Nunes’ Jamestown Project colleague Bakari Kitwana defended radical former green jobs czar Van Jones on FNC earlier this month:

At the Huffington Post, Kitwana smeared parents and conservative commentators who objected to the White House junior lobbyists-in-the-schools effort earlier this month as — you guessed it — RAAAAACISTS.

The 3 R’s in the Age of Obama: Rappin’, revolution & radicalism

The three R’s in the Age of Obama: Rappin’, revolution & radicalism
by Michelle Malkin

When the White House announced plans for the president’s nationwide address to schoolchildren two weeks ago, worried parents were dismissed as “kooks.” We pointed to the subtext of “social justice” activism rampant in American classrooms. It’s time for a big, fat Told You So.

Out of the spotlight, politicized lessons continue to supplant core academics.

At the B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, N.J. earlier this year, schoolchildren were instructed to memorize a paean to Barack Obama. A video uploaded to the YouTube account of Charisse Carney-Nunes, author of the children’s book “I Am Barack Obama” and a self-described Harvard Law “schoolmate” of the president’s, showed students lined up in the auditorium snapping their fingers and chanting in unison:

Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said all should lend a hand to make the country strong again
Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be fair today, equal work means equal pay.

Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said take a stand, make sure everyone gets a chance
Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said red, yellow, black and white, all are equal in his sight
Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama
Yeah! Barack Hussein Obama

…Hello Mr. President, We honor you today
For all your great accomplishments, we all do say hooray
Hooray, Mr. President you are No. 1
The first black American to lead this nation

Acknowledging the historic nature of Obama’s presidency (“the first black American”) is one thing. Deifying him with creepy spiritual references (“red, yellow, black and white, all are equal in his sight” is cribbed from the famous hymn “Jesus Loves the Little Children;” cheering “you are No. 1”) is quite another. Burlington Township (NJ) school officials said Thursday the recording and dissemination of the video was “unauthorized,” but acknowledged that the Obama praise session was part of the students’ official curriculum.

Carney-Nunes’s Obama book was on prominent display during the students’ performance. It is a tool, she says, that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, ‘Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.’” Seeing everything through the lens of Obama, as his incessantly self-referential United Nations speech demonstrated, is a trademark of the perpetual Obama campaign.

This O-cult lesson is exactly the kind of junior campaign lobbying activity that White House officials planned around the president’s education speech. Alert parents and administrators called out the Department of Education’s activist, Obama-centric education manuals before the event. Federal officials altered the language. Obama delivered an innocuous speech. But on cue, education radicals goaded students to engage in political activism.

White House and Hollywood moguls launched a “Get Schooled” initiative this month with Obama that urges students to lobby for higher teacher pay and to embrace the rallying cries “Know Your Rights” and “Change the System.”

At the New Trier High School in Northfield, Illinois, educators followed up on President Obama’s address with a 45-minute “extended adviser” discussion last week to explore “the significant messages inherent in his speech.” Illinois writer/blogger Tom Blumer reports that “parents were not informed on a timely basis as to what was going to happen, and were given no specific instructions on how to have their child opt out of the ‘discussions.’” The school’s principal and assistant principal sent out suggestive questions focused on Dear Leader’s Do Something missives:

* Why do you think President Obama listed the responsibilities of teachers, parents, and the government before discussing your responsibility for your education?
* What are you “good at” and what do you have “to offer” your family, friends, and community?
* In the speech, President Obama spoke of some of the steps of Effective Effort. Identify them, using direct quotations from the text to support your assertions.
* Respond to President Obama’s final questions for you: “What’s your contribution going to be?…

In addition to radical White House Teaching Fellows like Chicago high school educator Xian Barrett (an outspoken charter school foe who founded a “Social Justice Club” and bussed students to protest) and Michelle Bissonnette, a Los Altos, Calif., teacher who is “focused on developing my leadership as a more culturally and racially conscious educator,” the White House has embraced controversial homosexual rights’ advocate Kevin Jennings as “Safe Schools czar.” Jennings founded the controversial GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network), which aggressively pushes sexually explicit, age-inappropriate books and lesson plans on alternative lifestyles.

Lost in all the chanting for change is the core commitment to impart actual knowledge. For progressives in the Age of Obama, setting high academic standards is secondary to the self-improvement of the “whole child” and “service” to the cause of social justice.

Out: Readin’, writin’, and ‘rithmetic.

In: Rappin’, revolution, and radicalism.

Mmm, mmm, mmm.

Ho-hum: Just another illegal alien jihadi suspect

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2009 08:42 PM

From the Dallas Morning News, an illegal alien from Jordan was arrested in Italy, Texas for plotting to bomb a skyscraper after coming to the U.S. specifically to commit jihad.

I’m sure the State Department and DHS will be all over the consular officials and immigration enforcement lapses that led to his entrance into the country and ability to work and blend in a la the 9/11 Visa Express beneficiaries!

Details:

Federal authorities arrested a 19-year-old Jordanian citizen whom they said placed an inactive car bomb today at Fountain Place, a 60-story skyscraper in downtown Dallas.

 

Hosam Maher Husein Smadi has repeatedly voiced his intent to serve Osama bin Laden and al-Qa’ida and commit “violent Jihad,” authorities said in a prepared statement.

 

“Today’s arrest of Hosam Maher Husein Smadi underscores the FBI’s unwavering commitment to bring to justice persons who attempt to bring harm to citizens of this country and significant danger to this community,” special FBI agent in charge Robert E. Casey, Jr. said in the statement. “Smadi made a decision to act to commit a significant conspicuous act of violence under his banner of ‘self Jihad.’”

 

Authorities said that Smadi was under continuous FBI surveillance. Federal agents posed as members of an al-Qa’ida sleeper cell. Smadi, who was in the U.S. illegally, allegedly told them that he came to the country specifically to commit “Jihad for the sake of God.”

 

According to authorities, Smadi identified potential Dallas targets in June and allegedly scoped out Fountain Place in July. Authorities said that Smadi lived and worked in Italy, about 45 miles south of Dallas.

BETWEEN THE LINES
Bill Ayers is back!
Exclusive: Joseph Farah declares Obama flat-out lied about his ties to terrorist
--WND


between the linesJoseph Farah



Bill Ayers is back!

© 2009 

"He's just a guy who lives in the neighborhood."


That was the lie Barack Obama told about his relationship with unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers during the presidential campaign.


Apparently most people believed it.


Few of my colleagues in the news media deemed the connection between a leading presidential candidate and a seething-with-rage, violent, hard-core, communist revolutionary of any consequence.


Obama won the election. His opponent, John McCain, seemed nervous about even mentioning Bill Ayers and his significant terrorist other, Bernardine Dohrn, an admirer of Charles Manson's grisly fork murders.


I hate to say it, but I told you so.


Learn about the depths of the relationship between Barack Obama and Bill Ayers -- don't miss Brad O'Leary's "The Audacity of Deceit"


I knew the connection was strong.


We reported exclusively – way back in February 2008 – how Obama and Ayers worked together.


We reported how Obama held his first state Senate political fundraiser in the home of Ayers and Dohrn.


We reported how Obama tried to block legally the airing of a McCain TV ad linking him with Ayers.


We reported how the Obama campaign scrubbed the blog postings of a close Ayers associate from its website to minimize the connection.


We reported how Obama actually cited his job with Ayers as a qualification for being president.


And, perhaps most interestingly of all, we chronicled in WND, columnist Jack Cashill's persuasive series of articles on the probability that Ayers actually ghostwrote Obama's autobiography.


Yesterday, of course, another prominent journalist, Christopher Andersen, author of the new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," came to the same conclusion as Cashill – announcing his findings to Sean Hannity on Fox News.


Why is this latest development so significant?


Because, if it is true – and I believe it is – it confirms Obama lied boldly and blatantly about something so significant during the campaign. It would also confirm Obama as a close associate and trusted friend to one of the most despicable America haters on planet Earth.


You just don't hire anyone to collaborate with you on your autobiography. You only choose someone you trust, someone who thinks like you, someone who really knows you and your innermost convictions and shares them.


The evidence is mounting that Obama selected Bill Ayers.


While we were reporting all this last year, my colleagues were describing Ayers as "an anti-war activist."


He was hardly "an anti-war activist." He was part of the leadership of an organization whose commitment was to make war on the United States of America – as they explained it, "to bring the war home."


Ayers, Dohrn and the Weather Underground did that through armed bank robberies, through bombings of the U.S. Capitol and dozens of other targets, through the murder of a San Francisco policeman and through the open advocacy of a reign of terror that went on for more than a decade.


That's what he did. And he got away with it. He got away with murder.


As he put it not too long ago: "Guilty as hell. Free as a bird. America is a great country."


Obama's justification for a long and intimate working relationship with Ayers is that he was only 8 years old when Ayers performed his infamous deeds in behalf of an international communist revolution that literally declared war on America.


Actually, however, what Obama means is that Ayers and Dohrn began their terrorist attacks when he was about 8 years old. But these most-wanted fugitives who attacked the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, police stations and other targets continued until Obama was 20 years old!


Ayers and Dohrn didn't turn themselves in until 1980. At least one more murderous attack by their Weather Underground friends, an armed assault on a Brinks truck that left guard Peter Paige dead and his partner, Joe Trombino, severely wounded, took place a year later. One of the perpetrators of that attack was Ayers' former girlfriend, Kathy Boudin. Ayers and Dohrn later became legal guardians of a son born to her and another Brinks assassin, David Gilbert. (Parenthetically, Trombino was killed on 9/11, while Ayers was, on that same date, defending his record of domestic terrorism in a New York Times interview.)


This is a striking example of the way Obama has twisted his deep involvement with the first couple of the Weather Underground.

 

·                  Obama accepted cash political contributions from Ayers and Dohrn, not as an 8-year-old, but as a "community organizer" ready to launch his campaign for the Illinois Legislature in 2001.

·                  Obama launched his first bid for political office in the living room of their home in 1995.

·                  Michelle Obama invited Ayers to speak to a conference she organized in 1997

·                  Barack Obama endorsed Ayers' book in 1997 – a book that references Ayers' neighbor, Obama.

 

Obama has claimed variously that he didn't know about Ayers' history with the Weather Underground when they got involved with one another, that he assumed he had been "rehabilitated" and that their relationship was limited to being neighbors.


How can I put this delicately? None of that is true. Obama and Ayers found each other and supported one another for years precisely because they shared radically "transformative" beliefs. There is every reason to believe – since Obama seems committed to obscuring his relationship with Ayers – they still do.


But back to Obama's favorite stump line about Ayers.


He says he was only 8 years old when Ayers performed his "despicable" deeds. As I pointed out, that's not true. However, suppose it were?


Obama was also 8 years old when another American performed despicable deeds. His name was Charles Manson. Would it be a legitimate excuse – a worthy rationalization – if Obama had maintained a working political alliance with Manson for five years? Would it be acceptable for Obama to say, "Gee, I didn't know about his history. I was only 8 years old at the time"?


I don't think so.


I believe Americans would see through that smokescreen.


Yet, Manson and Ayers are not so dissimilar.


Just before Ayers and Dohrn went underground, the Manson gang committed their brutal murders of actress Sharon Tate and others.


Do you know what Dohrn had to say about that notorious event?


"Dig it. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, then they shoved a fork into a victim's stomach! Wild!"


Dohrn went on to suggest her fellow radical, homicidal maniacs adopt a "fork" salute to greet one another.


The reason Obama has no choice but to distance himself from Ayers and this history is because it is morally indefensible. It is morally reprehensible. It is, of course, just plain evil.


But you can't say you weren't warned.


Maybe you weren't paying attention.


But you were warned.


Now that you know all this information, what are you going to do with it? Will you be complicit in the evil that has descended on this country's leadership as a kind of judgment on us all? Or will you get righteously angry and get out into the streets to stop the madness?


That's our choice.


Are you with Bill Ayers and Barack Obama? Or are you with America?


Are you with Bill Ayers and Barack Obama? Or are you with truth and decency and justice?


Are you with Bill Ayers and Barack Obama? Or are you with the people and the Constitution?

Consequences Of Obama’s “Jimmy Carter Replay”

 

A thoroughly weakened America in the “international community,” accompanied by a domestic economy that is in shambles, can only energize those foreign powers that seek to establish hegemony over this nation for the foreseeable future.

 

Christopher G. Adamo
 
It was perhaps fitting this last week that former President Jimmy Carter again went public with a continuation of the insipid drivel for which he has become so famous. In an interview on NBC, he asserted that conservative opposition to Barack Obama is undoubtedly the result of racism. Sadly, even in his advanced years, Jimmy Carter is still capable of descending to the same levels of idiocy that he achieved in his “prime.”

 

More significantly, the intended beneficiary of Carter’s banal commentary, Barack Obama, now holds this nation’s highest office, reminding us all that such a grave national misstep as the election of Jimmy Carter in 1976 can be revisited if its grim lessons are forgotten, as apparently is the case. America inarguably repeated its foolishness at the ballot boxes last November. It is beyond naive to ignore the pattern of similarly disastrous results, many of which are already unfolding with the worst yet to come.

At present, it is unclear whether Barack Obama is actually blind to the dire ramifications that the nation will inevitably reap from his actions, or if he truly intends to inflict such harm on it. What is beyond dispute among thinking Americans is that those bleak outcomes are no surprise, given the past history of playing foolhardy games on the foreign relations front, and the consistently disastrous results that ensued.

Like Obama, Jimmy Carter has always been embarrassed by a vibrant and strong America. Consequently, as its leader he could never muster the inner strength to bear a robust national character in front of the rest of the world. Eventually, his own weakness was perceived as America’s weakness. Not surprisingly, those evil forces that are ever watchful for any occasion to move against it saw a great window of opportunity during the Carter years.

It is notable that during that tumultuous time, with the Cold War raging, Carter’s most significant alteration to America’s military apparatus was the cancellation of the B-1 bomber, thus leaving the nation’s strategic bombing force to struggle along with the antiquated B-52. Such decimation of the military became a defining trait of the Carter presidency.

Few may recall how Carter managed to thoroughly undo the great firewall that had been erected by President Kennedy to prevent the infiltration of Soviet nuclear missiles into the West during the Cuban missile crisis. While Kennedy’s resolve finally forced Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to back down and agree to the removal of his missiles from Cuba in 1961, in the late 1970s, Leonid Brezhnev who was then leading the USSR felt sufficiently emboldened to re-deploy nuclear missiles in Cuba.

On discovery of the missiles by U.S. intelligence, Carter made a big fuss, characterized their presence as “unacceptable,” and demanded their removal.
But Brezhnev had correctly sized up the invertebrate Carter, and simply dismissed any complaints. This proved to be a safe bet. In the end, Carter did nothing against that act of Soviet aggression, which remained in place until the end of the USSR.

Similarly, it was Jimmy Carter who set the stage for the downfall of the Shah of Iran and his pro-western government, and thereby enabled the inevitable rise of militant Islam in its place. The aftershocks of that fiasco were felt almost immediately in the West, with middle-Eastern oil supplies being curtailed and gasoline prices skyrocketing as a result.

Also, the obvious unwillingness of Carter to engage the Islamist regime of Ayatollah Khomeni energized the movement, and in particular its virulent anti-Americanism, thus instigating the November 1979 invasion of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, and subsequent taking of its American staff as hostages.

More than a year of obsequious and embarrassing “negotiations” by the Carter Administration netted no results, except that the increasingly emboldened Iranians were thoroughly enjoying the advantage they held in the situation.
Only upon the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 and his promise of a harsh response if the matter was not resolved by Inauguration Day, did the Iranians recognize the need to free the hostages.

Ultimately, the total lack of moral and philosophical certitude in the Carter White House, abetted by the criminal incompetence of his staff, left the nation weak and timid in the face of increasingly belligerent Communist and Islamist adversaries. Soviet expansion during the Carter years went unchecked, along with the malignant growth of the modern Islamist/terrorist movement. America has paid, and to this day continues to pay, an awful price for the appalling ineptitude of its “leaders” during those years.

Now, in 2009, America once again finds itself under the “leadership” of an individual who regularly reveals a deep-seated animus towards this nation, its heritage, and its lingering potential to remain a world leader. Clearly following in Carter’s footsteps, Barack Obama is at once creating situations that imperil this nation, while methodically weakening its ability to deal with the crises that will inevitably erupt as a result.

Obama has alienated America’s staunchest allies, such as Great Britain and Israel, while seeking to ingratiate himself to the brutal tyrants and thugs who rule the third world.
His willingness to enhance the standing of Venezuelan Marxist Hugo Chavez, while undermining the leaders of Honduras as they attempt to extricate themselves from such a fate, can only portend a burgeoning problem that a free America will eventually have to confront.

Back at home, he wreaks havoc on the national treasury by throwing unfathomable capital at historically unfeasible social programs. In clear “Carteresque” fashion, he concurrently “saves” money by cutting the military budget. This is a particularly foolhardy move, given that the world scene is, by all accounts, increasingly unstable and in particular, growing ever more hostile to America.

Increasing Russian aggression towards former Soviet “Republics,” and the wild-eyed dreams among some in the Kremlin to resurrect the old Soviet Union
can only be bolstered by Obama’s decision to withdraw America’s missile shield from the Czech Republic and Poland. And just to make the Russians feel sufficiently confident to implement their expansionist plans, Obama has promised to unilaterally make drastic cuts in America’s nuclear arsenal.

A thoroughly weakened America in the “international community,” accompanied by a domestic economy that is in shambles, can only energize those foreign powers that seek to establish hegemony over this nation for the foreseeable future. And it is certain that in their plans, they will make every effort to prevent its reconstitution from the ashes of its current socialist/pacifist ideology.

 


 
The Saul Alinsky connection to the Vista program at an agency that was called Action that was taken over by the hard left is exposed by Mark Levin as the Carter Adminstration was peddling Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, a book Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer, using taxpayer dollars and shoveling them out to all the poor areas in the country.  Alinsky was a Marxist revolutionary who was trying to persuade the protestors at the time in America on how to deceive the American people to further their hard left agenda! 
 
Listen to this excellent interview of Levin below that exposes the massive power grab by the Obamunists that is at work to control every aspect of our lives as they continue their destruction of American from within by turning it into a Communist state under the dictatorial control of a Godless narcissistic megalomaniac who was weaned on hatred for any and everything American in the best sense of that word, i.e., a God fearing country that understood that without God's help, it will not get God's blessing, i.e., as a Republic it will not survive! -  Gary L.

O's narcissism on display at U.N.

We must embrace a new era of engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect. …

– President Barack Obama, Sept. 23, 2009

I've constructed similar analogies before, so bear with me if this sounds a little familiar: You live in an apartment building, down the hall from a pyromaniac who has served time for arson. The problem is that he's been stocking his apartment with all manner of flammable sundries over the last couple of weeks, and there's every reason to believe he's planning something particularly horrendous.


What's really scary is that the group of tenants who have met several times over what to do about this guy have, for some reason, prohibited any decisive action be taken, citing grounds such as lack of probable cause, due process and concern that he might bring a lawsuit if confronted. In fact, the building superintendent has promised sanctions against anyone who goes to the police or the landlord.


What's even scarier: Members of your own family agree with the other tenants.


This is analogous to the situation that the U.S. faces vis-à-vis North Korea, the Islamic Republic of Iran and, to a degree yet to be determined, much of the Islamic world.


Many Americans who are not committed leftists agree that American foreign policy has grown increasingly limp-wristed over the last 30 years. Despite the mobilization against Islamic fascists in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, this also includes the administration of George W. Bush in key areas.


In days past, the U.S. was willing and able to act unilaterally when tyrants and destabilizing forces emerged on the geopolitical stage. What the majority of Americans do not know is that, for the aforementioned last 30 years, it has been the intent of certain of our leaders and lawmakers that America lose its global preeminence.


What can we learn about our new president by analyzing his personality quirks? Find out what the experts say in Whistleblower magazine's "Narcissist in Chief" edition


In no way is this evidenced more than by the administration of President Barack Obama. Like Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Obama expounds upon cooperation and peace, but, as with so many other issues, his actions contradict his exposition. In his twisted vision, a weakened America is a good thing. It is most certainly in keeping with the political doctrine he followed prior to running for the presidency, and the character of his confederates. If one factors out the manner in which the product was presented to the electorate in 2008, it makes perfect sense.


In my 2005 column "The case for imperialism," I stated that which is anathema to progressives: American society is superior to that of other Western societies, our culture is superior to that of retrograde Third World cultures, and it is a moral imperative that the U.S. uncompromisingly advance our worldview and dispatch all opposition with extreme prejudice.


My parents, God love them, while not political, were essentially liberals. Like many children of liberals, I was raised with the admonition "Never hit anyone unless they hit you first." Of course, this completely overlooks the fact that often, the one who is hit first isn't in any shape to hit back. I mean, you wouldn't let someone shoot or stab you first, would you? My children have been instructed to incapacitate anyone they even think is going to hit them, and worry about the niceties later.


There isn't much reason to belabor all that was wrong with President Obama's address to the United Nations General Assembly this week and the feeble message it conveyed to our enemies. To those enemies, no doubt it was the cherry on the sundae behind Obama's resolution to halt deployment of the anti-missile shield in Eastern Europe and his abysmal telegraphing as regards the campaign in Afghanistan, as well as selling out Israel.

 

We'd be content and happy if Obama can stay president forever. …Moammar Gadhafi, Sept. 23, 2009

 

And is it any wonder? Do you suppose Gadhafi and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were snickering up their sleeves as Obama droned on with his trademark smug, peremptory cadence, extolling the virtues of cooperation and (very Western, I might add) concepts of shared responsibility?


I'm no psychologist, but I think that this propensity for weakening us on the part of our leaders is a manifestation of their narcissism. They believe that these foolish overtures to enemy nations display magnanimity and transcendent character on their part. Given that Obama is the narcissist's narcissist, it obviously figures that his efforts in this area outstrip those of other American presidents.


To many of us, it is clear that Obama is dragging America toward global socialism; as I have indicated before, probably farther to the left than that. Interestingly, it is worth noting that all of the world's other socialist and Marxist regimes differ in a fundamental aspect from the one Obama is desperately trying to create.


They look out for their own interests.

Obama Appointee Kevin Jennings Can’t Remember Saying the F-Word to Bash Christians — in a Church

 

kevin_jennings-older.jpgDouble Standard for “Gay” Appointees? If a conservative Republican presidential appointee had told gays to “drop dead” and said, “[F**k] ‘em” to the religious left — in a church — he would be dumped in a heartbeat due to liberal media pressure. But Kevin Jennings — who wears his hatred of religious conservatives on his sleeve as America’s leading activist “promoting homosexuality” in schools — is so far untouched as Obama’s “Safe Schools” deputy in the Department of Education. TAKE ACTION: urge your Congressman and Senators (202-224-3121; www.congress.org) to push for this dismissal of this troubled man whose abject bigotry and reckless promotion of wrong and unhealthy lifestyles make him a poor role model for children.

Check out FoxNews.com’s first major piece on the controversy surrounding Kevin Jennings, President Obama’s “Safe Schools” Education Department appointee and the nation’s leading activist promoting homosexuality in schools. Much of the article’s information against Jennings — including Brian Burt’s firsthand piece from a GLSEN conference exposing Jennings’ open desire to “promote homosexuality” in schools — came from Americans For Truth’s work (and that of our previous publication, Lambda Report).


What the FOX report left out was that Jennings used the F-word in 2002 to convey his hatred of the “religious right,” in a church no less. He says he can’t recollect” making the comment. Back in 2002, Americans For Truth and this writer (then writing for Concerned Women for America), obtained the audio tape from Jennings talk at the liberal Marble Collegiate Church in New York City — which I transcribed for the 2002 report by CWA below. (The tape has since been misplaced and FOX won’t report Jennings’ church expletive until an audio of the speech is produced.)


Here’s our AFTAH article highlighting the CWA paper exposing Jennings and GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network, which he founded :

 

GLSEN’S JENNINGS: !&%#! THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT!

 

Addressing a church audience on March 20, 2000 in New York City — just days before “Fistgate” — GLSEN Executive Director Kevin Jennings offered a stinging (and quite intolerant) assessment of how to deal with religious conservatives:

 

“Twenty percent of people are hard-core fair-minded [pro-homosexual] people. Twenty percent are hard-core [anti-homosexual] bigots. We need to ignore the hard-core bigots, get more of the hard-core fair-minded people to speak up, and we’ll pull that 60 percent [of people in the middle]   over to our side. That’s really what I think our strategy has to be. We have to quit being afraid of the religious right. We also have to quit — I’m trying to find a way to say this. I’m trying not to say, ‘[F—] ‘em!’ which is what I want to say, because I don’t care what they think! [audience laughter] Drop dead!” — Kevin Jennings speech to Marble Collegiate Church, March 20, 2000.

 

“[It should be noted that GLSEN and Jennings make heavy use of the words “respect” and “tolerance” in their public rhetoric and in descriptions of their programs. GLSEN’s also sponsors a “No Name Calling Week,” which includes “No Dissing” in its advice to kids as part of a school-based program to “eliminate bullying.”]

 

Now you would think that telling conservative Christians to “Drop dead!” and using the F-word to describe your hatred of them is something you’d remember. But according to the liberal website Think Progress:

 

There appears to be no full transcript available of this 2000 speech; it seems to first appear in a 2002 article on the right-wing website Concerned Women for America. The same day that article was published (4/10/02), Jennings told NPR that he had “no recollection of [that] quote whatsoever.”

 

Note how Jennings did not flat out deny making the nasty anti-Christian comments, but just said that he cannot recollect making them. It could be possible that Jennings — whose paper trail of “religious right”-bashing is extensive — is the type of profane liberal whose habit of cussing is so entrenched that even doing so in church would not be memorable.


We are searching Americans For Truth’s research archives for the tape of the Jennings speech — to jog his memory. The tape is apparently no longer available from the pro-homosexual Marble Collegiate Church, based in New York City. Calls by AFTAH to the church requesting the tape went unanswered, and FOX News also was unsuccessful in its attempts to secure a copy.

Does Obama Have the Ability to Tell the Truth?

By Sher Zieve  Wednesday, September 23, 2009


As Barack Hussein Obama’s lies seem to be waxing greater each day—with regards to what is contained within his ObamaCare and that Cap and Trade (aka Cap and Tax) won‘t negatively impact We-the-People—I have sincerely begun to wonder if he even has the ability to
tell the truth.  Facts do not seem to play a big part in the life of this very powerful and increasingly very dangerous individual.


For example, Obama has said his ObamaCare does not fund illegal Aliens.  But, it does.  Congressional
Research Service (CRS) advises:  “Under HR 3200, a ‘Health Insurance Exchange’ would begin operation in 2013 and would offer private plans alongside a public option…HR 3200 does not contain any restrictions on non citizens—whether legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently—participating in the Exchange.”  Obama lies.


Obama has said that ObamaCare will not take away any services for Seniors.  But it does…and a lot!  Even Democrat Rep. Betsy Markey(CO-D)  told her constituents that Medicare recipients will have to give up current
benefits for ObamaCare to work.  Obama lies.


Obama has said that his ObamaCare will be paid for by [his] finding over $400 Billions in “Medicare fraud and waste.”  If there were $400 Billions in Medicare fraud and waste, why not find it before he takes over the rest of our lives with his Marxist ObamaCareReason?  That much waste and fraud simply is not there.  It is, however, a nifty way for Obama to eliminate his Death Panels.  Seniors will be eliminated/terminated/eradicated (you choose your favorite word) by Obama’s Rationing Board’s refusal to allow Seniors to receive treatment.  Now, THAT’S killing at least 2 old birds with one stone!  Pretty clever, BO!  Obama lies.


Obama said that no Seniors’ Medicare benefits will be cut.  But, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office—which is headed by Obama appointee Douglas Elmendor—said the bill will severely reduce payments to the
Medicare Advantage plans by over $100 Billion and ObamaCare “would reduce the extra benefits that would be made available to beneficiaries through Medicare Advantage plans.”  Another Obama lie is uncovered. 


Then, as Obama says his ObamaCare will NOT fund abortions, one of his own Democrat Party members says that isn’t true.  Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) said that he and the other pro-life Democrats will not vote for any bill that does not specifically state that no abortions will be federally funded under ObamaCare.  Stupak said:  “I’m just very caution on this because, in every appropriations bill that we put our right to life riders (as we call them) to prevent public funds for abortions.  Every time we’ve tried to do it this year, under this current administration, we’ve sort of been denied the opportunity to present our amendments or we have some watered down language.


“And we’re very cautious and we want to see the language and we want to work with pro-life groups. We want to make sure we are doing everything right because this will be a policy for the whole of the United States.”  Again, Obama lies.


Obama said recently that his Cap and Trade would only raise electricity rates slightly.  However, even before he was elected, Obama said his plan would “necessarily cause electricity rates to skyrocket.”  Finally—after being pressed and pressed repeatedly—the Obama Administration admitted that if Obama’s Cap and Trade passes, an average family will pay at least an additional $1,761 per year!  A request under the FOIA (
Freedom of Information Act) to the US Treasury showed that Obama knew about the huge rate increases to the consumer potentially as early as February 2009—and he still refused to tell the truth.  Obama lies and lies and lies.     

 
Then, to top off everything else he has done, on Wednesday Obama spoke at the United Nations.  During his speech, Obama said that he would be severely reducing the nuclear defense capabilities of the USA and, again siding with Palestine, slapped Israel for building new homes—in Israel—for its residents.  This man’s insanity—or evil (you choose)—seems limitless. 

 

Remember, this is the same Dictator Obama who believes in giving terrorists US Constitutional rights but, brings the full weight of his government down on American citizens—most recently health insurance company Humana—if they dare to disagree with him.


The more I listen to the usurper, the more I continue to question his sanity.  As he is a patently devoted Marxist, I have never questioned his motives.  His motives include the obliteration of the USA and he is in the process of dismantling and destroying the once freest and most giving country in the world.  Even President Carter—considered by many to be the worst POTUS in US history—doesn’t hold a candle to the pandemonium and madness being brought to bear against the American people by The Obama.  And now he wants to be the World Emperor, while his need to lie seems almost pathological.  This is a story that would be considered an unbelievable and untenable script even in HollywoodAmazing.       



Obamacare won’t cover illegal immigrants? Yes it will, says Congressional Research Service:
Democrat Admits the Elderly Will Lose Under Obama Care:
Pro-Life Democrat Promises Again: No Abortion Funding Ban, No Health Care Bill:
Budget chief contradicts Obama on Medicare costs:
Obama Admin: Cap And Trade Could Cost Families $1,761 A Year:

Obama's Plan to Spread the Wealth

by Phyllis Schlafly

September 25, 2009

When Barack Obama told Joe the Plumber he planned to "spread the wealth around," many people didn't realize he was not talking about spreading the wealth only of the super-rich. Now that Obama is elected, he is moving rapidly to expand welfare handouts for non-taxpayers, running up a tremendous national debt that will inevitably lead to higher taxes on the Middle Class.

 

The enormity of this transfer of money away from working, taxpaying Americans to non-taxpayers (who voted overwhelmingly for Obama for President in 2008) has just been detailed in a sensational 53-page report by Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation. There are not enough superlatives in the English language to adequately describe the colossal amounts of money involved in the Obama Administration's shocking cash transfers.

Most people don't realize that the federal budget has become a vast machine for transferring wealth from the upper third of Americans (who pay 90 percent of federal income taxes) to the lowest third who earn less than 200 percent of the government-stipulated "poverty" level and pay no income tax. The size of this massive annual transfer rose by 40 percent to $714 billion over the last ten years, and is projected to rise to $1 trillion per year by the end of Obama's first term.

The term "welfare" embraces much more than the single program formerly called AFDC that was "reformed" (and renamed TANF) in 1996. It includes 70 other programs that provide unearned cash and non-cash benefits to people living in low-income households (but does not include Social Security, Medicare and unemployment compensation, which are earned through work and available to almost everyone).

Obama didn't invent these means-tested transfers; they mostly started with Lyndon Johnson's Great Society welfare programs. Like most government programs, the cost of these welfare and aid-to-poor-and-low-income persons has increased, and Obama demanded vast additional increases, which Congress passed in the Stimulus and Omnibus bills.

Welfare spending was 13 times greater in FY 2008 than it was when LBJ started the Great Society in 1964. Means-tested welfare spending then was 1.2 percent of our Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and now has reached 5 percent.

These programs are now the third most expensive government activity, ranking below Social Security and Medicare spending, and education spending. National Defense ranks only fourth.

The real cost of these programs is unknown to the American people (one could say, kept secret from them) because the spending is distributed by 14 departments and agencies though 71 different programs. We are fortunate that Rector, a numbers expert, has made a painstaking analysis and shone light upon these transfers.

In fiscal year (FY) 2008, government spending on means-tested welfare or aid to the poor amounted to $714 billion, of which approximately three-fourths was federal spending and one-fourth came from state government funds. States are required to match a percentage of federal welfare outlays.

Of the total means-tested spending in FY 2008, 52 percent was spent on medical care for the poor and low-income persons, 37 percent was spent on cash, food, and housing aid, and 11 percent was spent on social services, training, child development, federal education aid, and community development for low-income persons and communities. Roughly half goes to disabled or elderly persons, and the other half to households with children mostly headed by single mothers.

Rector ran an adding machine tape and concluded that means-tested handouts in FY 2008 amounted to about $16,800 for every poor person, defined as below 100 percent of the designated poverty level. When welfare spending is related to the larger group of persons who qualify for benefits below 200 percent of the "poverty" level, we are giving $28,000 per year to every lower-income four-person household.

Why are we told that we have so inequality in the United States? That's because the Census counts only 4 percent of these welfare gifts to low-income people as their income, and most government discussions of poverty do not even refer to the massive transfers of money taking place.

To get an idea of how big is the debt Obama is creating, which ultimately will have to be paid by the Middle Class, let's compare spending on welfare to spending on fighting wars. Since the beginning of LBJ's Great Society spending, our government has spent $15.9 trillion (in inflation-adjusted 2008 dollars) on means-tested welfare, which is more than twice the cost of all major fighting wars in U.S. history. We spent only $4.1 trillion (in 2008 dollars) on World War II, which was the most expensive single undertaking in U.S. history.

Under Obama's budget, which has already been passed by Congress, federal welfare spending will increase by $88 billion in 2009, plus an additional $175 billion in 2010. This two-year increase of $263 billion will bring total federal and state welfare handouts to $890 billion a year, which is more than 6 percent of GDP.

Mmm mmm mmm:” New details about the Dear Leader song video

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 24, 2009 09:04 AM


Photoshop: Leo Alberti


In case you were wondering which school taught kids that “Barack Hussein Obama mmm mmm mmm rap that I posted yesterday afternoon, here are some new details.


The video was originally posted in June 2009 here by YouTube user “brandnuwords.” Update: She has now removed the video. Here is the screenshot:




Brandnuwords” is the YouTube account of Charisse Carney-Nunes. More on her in a moment.
YouTube user “alteredbeat” re-posted the video on September 6 here.


Alteredbeat e-mailed Carney-Nunes to inquire about the location of the school. She told him it was a school in South Jersey.


This screenshot from the video…




…matches up with this picture of the auditorium at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington Township, NJ:




I have e-mailed the principal of the school with the following questions:


Did Ms. Carney-Nunes have permission to videotape the performance?


Were parents notified that their children would be participating in this activity prior to the lesson?
Was Ms. Carney-Nunes invited to the school to teach the children the song and about her book, “I am Barack Obama?”


Was the principal aware of this event and taping?


Back to Charisse Carney-Nunes. Via ModernConservative, Carney-Nunes is senior vice president of The Jamestown Project, “the award-winning author of the children’s books, I Am Barack Obama (2009),” and according to her biography, “a graduate of Harvard Law School, where she was a schoolmate of President Obama.” I have e-mailed Carney-Nunes for comment as well.


The Obama school song video that she taped shows her book featured on an easel next to the children hailing Dear Leader. She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”


She has spread this creepy cult message to schoolchildren across the country.


Coming to a classroom near you?

We already know what the response will be to critics of this elementary school agitprop: Raaaaaacist!

Mayor loses it explaining police no-chase policy
'I'm lost for words with that...Wow...Where are the men in the white coats?'

The mayor of a small South Carolina town has been revealed in a YouTube video to have effectively lost her train of thought in responding to a reporter's questions about a new no-chase policy she had announced for her police officers.

And more.

"Wow. This lady is mayor? She seems like a great piece of work. If she can be a mayor... maybe I can find a city that would elect my German Shepherd mayor, too," wrote one forum participant on a PoliceLink page where the video was posted and a few paragraphs of description were attributed to Associated Press.

"Wow, I'm lost for words with that...I just...wow....Where are the men in the white coats?" wrote another.

The reason for the concern comes in the video revealing the actions and comments of Wellford, S.C., Mayor Sallie Peak, who was responding to a reporter's questions about an order she apparently issued in August.

It banned foot chases by police officers. It apparently came after a law enforcement officer got injured in a chase. Peake explained the suspect "had a piece of crack on him" but the arrest was not worth the expenses of the case for taxpayers.

Her response to that case was no officers "chasing any suspects whatsoever."

The mayor talks about the cost of workers' compensation insurance, the loss of town patrol cars and eventually reacts in mock praise that there was a story.

Among the mayor's remarks:


 

·                  "I said what I meant and meant what I said."

·                  "Our insurance keeps rising, keeps going up, the taxpayers are paying for this."

·                  "You're trying to twist [my words]."

·                  May God bless you. May God bless you. May God bless you."

·                  "You've got a story, now dress it up."

 
But those commenting on the PoliceLink forum were astounded:

 

·                  Let's not chase bad guys because it's dangerous. Then let's not stop cars because that's dangerous. Then let's not drive to work because that's dangerous. In fact let's just get paid to sit at home because it's too dangerous to leave the house.

·                  Stone cold nuts

·                  God help the police officers and the citizens in that town.

·                  How on earth did she get elected mayor with such poor communication skills? Now onto her decision-making skills...

·                  She must thank God every day that the local psychiatric hospital

has a work release program.
