Proof Multiculturalism* is Evil?

>> Tuesday, August 30, 2011

[*defined by total inclusiveness at the expense of personal, religious, and (as a result) societal freedoms]

The GZ Mosque has applied for government grants to finish construction of a Mosque that did NOT exist prior to that day, September 11, 2001.

The St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church-- the only church destroyed on 9/11 --has been refused the right to rebuild on it's old site, across the street from Ground Zero.

The City of New York has bent over backward to accommodate the GZ Mosque; the construction of which is a huge slap in the face to most New Yorkers, to say nothing of most Americans.

The City of New York has impeded and ultimately denied a Christian church the right to rebuild what Muslims destroyed.

Mayor Bloomberg has banned all clergy and prayer from the 10th anniversary observance at Ground Zero in 12 days.

Why does New York... why does New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg hate God? Why does he deny Christians a vocal presence at the 10th anniversary memorial? What is wrong with America, with American politics, that it can't bring itself to welcome God to Ground Zero; that it will not allow a Christian church to rebuild, but will allow the religion that brought the tower's down to build a mosque; a symbol of gloating, and an affront to most Americans for it's sheer audacity?

What is so evil about Christianity that it must be denied a voice? Will there be a Muslim cleric there? Will he speak? Will a Hindu be there? Some other motivational speaker? Why do Americans hate God so much that they drive him publicly from events like this? Why is Christ so hated that Christians are told to keep silent at a time when, and where, prayers are not only warranted, but a comfort to (and desired by) many who will attend.

Is all this being done simply to not offend someone? or a group of someones?

What? God kicked us out of HIS Garden, so we're gonna kick HIM out of ours?

This is nonsense, and America will pay for it. And by that I mean: are an earthquake and a hurricane Not enough of a warning for you, America?

Demar on Leftist Dominionism

>> Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Strictly speaking, Gary DeMar's hyperpreterism is anathema to me and many others; his theology is so wildly off-base it's a wonder he can't see commonsense or make logical assumptions in regard to biblical context. But where he's 180 degrees wrong in his theology, he's spot on in the article below.

This blog is about politics, not religion; despite my occasional flights off topic, but this post is not about religion, per se, it's about the hypocritical use of religion in politics by the Left.

So while I don't respect DeMar's theology, I can't discount truth even when it comes from DeMar-- a broken clock is right twice a day.

From DeMar's article, Leftist Dominionists Hate Competition...

What liberals hate is to have some group or competing ideology to claim what they believe is their turf. For decades liberals have staked out politics, education, media, entertainment, and every so-called secular area of life to be their domain, and woe to anyone who attempts to enter the gates to their heavily protected and subsidized kingdom.

So when liberals read about a group that wants to impact the family, religion, arts and entertainment, media, government, education, and business, they go into a frenzied dance of defiance and shock. There’s nothing new in any of this. It has a long history.

There is a lot of hypocrisy in this as well; not from DeMar, but from liberals. Religion, they say, has no place in politics, and yet they inject their own religion all the same, claiming it's their moral right and responsibility to do so. But let a conservative member of congress suggest that it is right and moral to do a thing for the benefit of all Americans, and liberals will rise up in apoplectic outrage. The only injection of religious principle into American culture the left will tolerate are those promoted by the left. As though they are the sole, rightful arbiters of morality in all of America.

In 2003, Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry criticized the Vatican for saying that “Catholic politicians like him have a ‘moral duty’ to oppose laws granting legal rights to gay couples.” He went on to say that “it’s important to not have the church instructing politicians. That is an inappropriate crossing of the line in America.” Would Kerry agree to the following logic of his position?:
  • "It’s important not to have the church instructing politicians about slavery."
  • "It’s important not to have the church instructing politicians about ethnic cleansing."
  • "It’s important not to have the church instructing politicians about civil rights."
This 'logic' is at the core of the division between Liberals and Conservatives. Liberals, according to DeMar, having entered "into every civil, cultural and political activity... patiently leavening them all as thoroughly as yeast leavens bread" is loath to give up any ground to Conservatives who are trying to do the very same today. The Tea Party has become the most dangerous grass roots organization to the Left's proclaimed cultural fiefdom, in decades (or ever). Which is why they attack the Tea Party at every opportunity. They fear change. Especially any change that threatens to topple them as the rightful purveyors of approved American license and culture.

Liberalism, especially under Obama, has shown itself to be a failure. It's time for a change. Not the kind of change he wants us to believe in, but the kind of change Americans believe in. And if truth be told, democrats and republicans (outside the beltway) are not so far apart in terms of what's best for America. There are only a few sticking points keeping us on opposite sides of the fence. If the ideologues would simply get out of the way... if WASHINGTON would get out of the way... we could work this out among ourselves.

America has no further need for ideologues. What America needs are some simple, real-world Americans with good ideas.

Quakes in Colorado AND Virginia?

Rare Strong Earthquake Hits Colorado
Quake rocks Washington area, felt on East Coast

Even Obama felt the tremors on Martha's Vineyard, just as he was starting another round of golf. Perhaps the Obama administration will this occasion to blame something other than president Bush for his latest approval rating dip to 38%.

"The recent earthquake in Virginia is the reason my approval rating has dropped another point..."

Even In Descent, America Still Shines On Occasion

>> Monday, August 22, 2011

From a purely artistic perspective this is a very nice statue/monument to Dr. King...

In terms of whatever political or philosophical statement it's meant to make, I can't begrudge a great man this kind of recognition. I will, however, argue against anyone's attempt to politicize this memorial or Dr. King's message. The only side God is on is His own, and Dr. King was a man of God.




His memorial opened today on the National Mall.

Would That Obama Took These Words to Heart...

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."

--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Commentary from Kirk Cameron:

Just as God speaks on tops of mountains, He also paints sunrises with light and clouds, composes symphonies with birds, crickets, and frogs, and sculpts massive rock statues with wind and water. God is not only a preacher; He is also a writer, a musician, an engineer, a carpenter, a father, a son, a brother, a King, and a servant. What has God called you to be? Don't wish you were something else. Be the very best at what you do. As a fellow actor once told me, "There are no small parts, only small actors," likewise, there are no insignificant roles to play in the Kingdom of God; they're all important. There are however, people who fail to see the significance of doing what they've been called to do with all their heart. Go all out. Be all in. Don't quit. Don't back down. Don't stop till you cross the line and finish the race. Then after you've been faithful, you may hear the heavenly words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."

To anyone reading this who takes prayer seriously...

Pray for our president. Pray for this country. Pray for mercy.

There is more to the descent of this nation than a single man, group of men, or their politics.

Nero In The White House


--Mychal Massie
August 8, 2011

Three significant historical events have been eclipsed by Obama: 1) Jimmy Carter will no longer be looked upon as the worst president in American history; 2) Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton will no longer be recognized as the greatest liars in presidential history; 3) Clinton's stain on Monica's dress, and what that did to the White House in general and the office of the president specifically, will forever pale in comparison to the stain and stench of Obama.

I need not spend much time on the failure of Obama as president. His tenure has been a failure on every measurable level. So much so, in fact, that some of the staunchest, most respected liberal Democrats and Democratic supporters have not only openly criticized him – some even more harshly than this essayist – but they have called for him to step down.

Richard Nixon's words "I am not a crook," punctuated with his involvement in Watergate, and Bill Clinton's finger-wagging as he told one of the most pathetic lies in presidential history, in the aftermath of Obama, will be viewed as mere prevarications.

Mr. Nixon and Clinton lied to save their backsides. Although, I would argue there are no plausible explanations for doing what they did, I could entertain arguments pursuant to understanding their rationales for lying. But in the case of Obama, he lies because he is a liar. He doesn't only lie to cover his misdeeds – he lies to get his way. He lies to belittle others and to make himself look presentable at their expense. He lies about his faith, his associations, his mother, his father and his wife. He lies and bullies to keep his background secret. His lying is congenital and compounded by socio-psychological factors of his life.

Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequaled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.

As the stock markets were crashing, taking with them the remaining life saving of untold tens of thousands, Obama was hosting his own birthday celebration, which was an event of epicurean splendidness. The shamelessness of the event was that it was not a state dinner to welcome foreign dignitaries, nor was it to honor an American accomplishment – it was to honor the Pharaoh, Barack Hussein Obama. The event's sole purpose was for the Pharaoh to have his loyal subjects swill wine, indulge in gluttony and behavior unfit to take place on the property of taxpayers, as they suffer. It was of a magnitude comparable to that of Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski's $2 million birthday extravaganza for its pure lack of respect for the people.

Permit me to digress momentarily. The U.S. Capitol and the White House were built with the intent of bringing awe and respect to America and her people. They were also built with the intent of being the greatest of equalizers. I can tell you, having personally been to both, there is a moment of awe and humility associated with being in the presence of the history of those buildings. They are to be honored and inscribed into our national psyche, not treated as a Saturday night house party at Chicago's Cabrini-Green.

The people of America own that home Obama and his wife continue to debase with their pan-ghetto behavior. It is clear that Obama and family view themselves as royalty, but they're not. They are employees of "we the people," who are suffering because of his failed policies. What message does this behavior send to those who today are suffering as never before?

What message does it send to all Americans who are struggling? Has anyone stopped to think what the stock market downturn forebodes for those 80 million baby boomers who will be retiring in the next period of years? Is there a snowball's chance in the Sahara that every news program on the air would applaud this behavior if it were George W. Bush? To that point, do you remember the media thrashing Bush took for having a barbecue at the White House?

Like Nero – who was only slightly less debaucherous than Caligula – with wine on his lips Obama treated "we the people" the way Caligula treated those over whom he lorded.

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.

Perspective: What Stability Looks Like to Bernanke

>> Tuesday, August 9, 2011

After yesterday's 635 point sell off the DOW is up over 400 today. The question now remains... can Washington agree to disagree and do what's right for the country and the people it purports to represent? Or will it be more of the same and a worsening economy?

The way the DOW see-sawed today, it could have been a lot worse. In some places it is.

Here's a little perspective:


Date: August 9, 2011
Reporting From: Vilnius, Lithuania


Just a quick thought on a ridiculously volatile day:

One of the things that people pick up on very quickly as they travel are how different price levels are around the world. I've been to roughly 100 countries, and I still find it amazing how much variance there is among things like food, property, and entertainment prices.

There are certain places-- Cambodia, Ecuador, Tanzania-- that are so jaw-droppingly cheap that it almost seems unreal. And you wonder how these people could possibly ever survive if they came to your country.

Well, the United States has just joined this proud cadre of banana republics... at least if you're from Switzerland.

You see, the Swiss franc is one of the few currencies that have given investors some sense of comfort recently; Switzerland inspires confidence and stability, and the worse things get in the United States and Europe, the more investors pull their money out of the dollar and euro, and park it in the Swiss franc.

It's all about supply and demand. Increased demand for the Swiss franc coupled with expanded supply of dollars and euros has caused the franc to surge over the last weeks and months. It wasn't too long ago that it would take 1.20 francs to buy a US dollar. Now it takes $1.40 to buy a single franc.

I can think of a lot of words to describe the performance of the US dollar: Farce, Joke, Lunacy, Embarrassment, Disgusting. But it's more clearly summed up like this: the price of a Big Mac in Zurich is now so high (at $17.19) that a minimum wage employee in Minneapolis, Minnesota, would have to work for nearly 4-hours in order to afford it.

This is what stability looks like to Ben Bernanke.


Until tomorrow,

Snookered Again!

>> Tuesday, August 2, 2011

At least, that's the feeling I'm left with.

I don't see any reason to cheer this fake compromise. None at all. This was a manufactured crisis by the Obama administration. And just like last December, this deal will turn out to have accomplished nothing in terms of debt reduction.

According to the messiahs speech today, "Growing the economy isn’t just about cutting spending and rolling back regulations that protect our air and water and keep people safe. We’re going to have to do more than that."

In other words... more stimulus. Hey! It didn't work the last time, but maybe it'll work THIS time, right?

As for market stability? The Dow dropped 265 points today.

And who said there wouldn't be any tax increases? Reid: Joint Committee Must Include Taxes Or Trigger Will Kick In

So what have we accomplished, with this 'nothing to show for...' piece of legislation other than an increase in the debt ceiling? Nothing. 2.5 trillion in cuts over 10 years? Future congresses are not beholden to this deal, as evidenced by past congresses with similar promises made before them. Simply put, future congresses can change, nullify, or add to ANY bit of legislation made law before their time at bat.

What we should have had, prior to any debt ceiling agreement, was a balanced budget amendment. Short of that, this piece of sham legislation will prove to be a waste of time, effort, and money. While bragging about not kicking the can down the road, they kicked the can down the road. And the truly spectacular thing about this is, NO ONE PAID ATTENTION WHEN THEY KICKED IT DOWN THE ROAD.

The president and politicians of both political persuasions want to tout 'shared sacrifice'? I'd like to SEE them make some sacrifices. With the exception of a small few, these folk have no idea what it means to sacrifice.



The Left simply doesn't get it.


Consider this cartoon. Look at the news guy response. How messed up is that. The GOP isn't barreling the car over the cliff, the Dems are, and yet Media's analysis lays the blame on the GOP.

What compromise was the Left offering? What compromise was Obama offering? The world will never know, because neither the president nor the Senate leader bothered to codify their plan. They had no intention of laying out a plan; just as they never intended to pass a budget when Pelosi was in charge.

Another Illustration: Not once has Obama taken responsibility for this economy. It is not George W. Bush who added 4 trillion to our national debt. If Bush truly drove the car into a ditch, Obama has done nothing to get us out. Instead he's hitched an impossible load to the already beleaguered (read: 'stuck') car. There's no way this car is getting out of the ditch. Not under the power of this bit of crap legislation... also known as (by a democrat, no less) a "Satan Sandwich."

Sadly... despite the apropos metaphor, Emanuel Cleaver doesn't get it either.

Here's a bit of analysis from Whiskey & Gunpowder:

The budget deal is all but done. Woohoo!

Back to spending beyond our means again. Back to buying more iPads. Back to more public work projects.

What a huge relief it is to get that silly spending cap out of the way.

Or... is it?

The deal making its way through congress would provide for an immediate $400 billion increase in the borrowing cap. Then they'll kick in an additional $500 billion cap increase this fall.

That $900 billion increase in borrowing is supposed to be matched by cuts to agency budgets over the next 10 years. (We'll believe it when we see it. More on that in a second...)

But first, the deal also creates a "Super Congress" (two words that typically are not found so close together). The do-gooders will appoint six "no-tax-increases-Republicans" and six "no-Medicare-or-Medicaid-entitlement-cuts-Democrats" to this group. Their goal is to find $1.5 trillion in cuts by November.

But what does this plan really accomplish?

Well, despite us waiting for the phone to ring, Congress didn't seem to ask our opinion. But we're happy to provide it to you, of course...

Aside from averting an over-due and necessary U.S. default, well... the deal does... NOTHING.

Our so-called "leaders" cut under $1 trillion over ten years. That works out to be about $90 billion per year... while we're running $1.5 trillion deficits.

And best of all, because of the non-recovery we've had, the politicians want to wait until we're on more stable footing to make any of those cuts. So NOTHING will be done for at least one year.

Laughable, I know.

All that posturing... supposed arguing... back door dealing... for a piddly 5.7% spending cut of this year's deficit... and not until 2013 at the earliest!
