Modern Liberalism’s Hidden Religious Foundations
By Kelly O’Connell

Could modern “godless” liberalism really have any religious origins? The actual genesis of “new liberalism” would surprise many leftists, should they ever deign to study its true origins. Given that many leftists assume modern liberalism is synonymous with atheism, intriguing it is to note this movement owes its very essence to religious antecedents. In fact, new liberalism could not exist without concepts borrowed from the Bible and ancient pagan Gnosticism, which form its skeleton.

By JB Williams

According to hundreds of folks setting up PACs so fast that they will soon outnumber McDonald’s burger stands, we only need ONE… theirs!

But the fact is, the American people do not need even ONE single PAC in order to take their country back and the sooner the people figure that out, the better!

Why a Third Party is Not the Answer
By Daniel Greenfield

Some think that the problems with the Republican party can best be solved by striking out to create a third party. But the problems with the GOP are almost certain to be repeated in trying to create any third party. The two most basic elements a political party, structure and financing, help insure that the men and women who run it will be good at fundraising and finding compromises between different factions and members. Which are the key qualifications of the Republican leadership. And always have been.

Obama propagandizes you through your own phoneBy Judi McLeod

The same president who speaks to you through a TelePrompter is well on his way to propagandizing the population through a free App on Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

One week before President Barack Obama’s defiant State of the Union Address, the White House announced the new White House App available for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

    A Chronology of Forgery & Deceit Most know that there are doubts about Obama’s Birth Certificate or eligibility to be President of the United States, but few are aware of how his supporters passed off an obvious forgery of a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth and used cleverly crafted quotes of apparent authorities to establish its authenticity for the purpose of committing election fraud upon the entire nation. The notion that it is a forgery continues to be squashed by the Main Stream Media. Consider the transcript from Chris Matthews’s “Hardball” program from last night during his interview of J.D….

    Activists charge that Obama has spent millions to silence them in court. Not exactly, say the government’s lawyers. ### Is President Barack Obama spending millions of dollars to hide the truth about his citizenship? During Obama’s 2008 run for the White House, his campaign and a host of other credible sources repeatedly debunked the conspiracy theory that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, and was thus ineligible to serve as president. But this failed to quell the “birther” movement, whose acolytes have filed more than 60 civil lawsuits challenging the president’s citizenship. None of these suits have gone anywhere…

    Editors note: Doug Edelman argues that while the eligibility question is valid and needs to be resolved, we should shelve the issue until after the 2010 mid-term elections. He believes that the issue could distract conservative from the important job of winning elections. What do you think? Leave a comment. Glenn Beck spent considerable airtime on his January 4, 2010 radio program dismissing and ridiculing the “Birthers” and the idea that President Obama was born in Kenya. Of course this raised immediate ire amongst those who question Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve in the office of President of the United…

    During questioning last week on Capital Hill, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Peter Orszag admitted the Obama administration intends to break the law and use TARP funds for whatever they desire. Passed by Congress in 2008 using scare tactics, the $700 billion TARP bailout specifically designated that all monies recouped must be used to pay down the national debt. But President Obama has included the expenditure of TARP funds in his 2011 budget despite its illegality. It appears the $787 Billion Stimulus package wasn’t a large enough slushfund for the Democrats. They’ve found a golden TARP piggy bank…

Buried Truths About Gays in the Military

Buried Truths About Gays in the Military
Townhall.com ^ | February 7, 2010 | Steve Chapman

Posted on Sunday, February 07, 2010 11:33:28 AM by Kaslin

There are lots of reasons for excluding gays and lesbians from the military. But current supporters of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy insist that really, it all comes down to cohesion. Keep gays out, and soldiers will stick together through thick and thin. Let gays in, and every platoon will disintegrate like a sand castle in the surf.

John McCain sounded this theme at a Senate hearing the other day, arguing that the existing law rests on the belief “that the essence of military capability is good order and unit cohesion, and that any practice which puts those goals at unacceptable risk can be restricted.” A group of retired military officers said the ban on gays serves “to protect unit cohesion and morale.”

Maybe this concern is what really underlies the exclusion of gays and lesbians. But I’m not so sure. In 2007, Gen. Peter Pace, then chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked about it, and he offered a different rationale. “I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts,” he said. Could the opposition stem mostly from a simple aversion to gays and their ways?

It’s not completely implausible that in a military environment, open homosexuality might wreak havoc on order and morale. But the striking thing about these claims is that they exist in a fact-free zone. From all the dire predictions, you would think a lifting of the ban would be an unprecedented leap into the dark, orchestrated by people who know nothing of the demands of military life.

As it happens, we now have a wealth of experience on which to evaluate the policy. When you examine it, you discover the reason McCain and Co. make a point of never mentioning it.

    President Barack Obama said some interesting things in his Jan. 27 State of the Union address. They’re interesting not so much because they’re lies, but because the political class — the kind of people who field lobbyists in Washington and file lawsuits for the ACLU and edit major American newspapers — was so confident that these utterances were lies that it simply ignored what might otherwise have been some earthshaking developments. For instance, the president said, according to the White House’s prepared transcript: “We should continue the work of fixing our broken immigration system — to secure our borders, enforce…

A Googler Has his Tiananmen Square Moment
TechCrunch ^ | February 5, 2010 | Michael Arrington

Posted on Sunday, February 07, 2010 6:49:00 AM by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Earlier today I was driving to Google for a product briefing, minding my own business, talking on my Google phone with Google PR and trying to figure out what Google building I was supposed to be driving to. I stopped at a crosswalk for a bunch of Googlers to pass. And this guy, who’s wearing a Google employee badge, decides it’s time to take a stand against cell phone use in cars. So he stands in front of my car and won’t move. That’s right, it was his Tiananmen Square moment.

Cars behind me start swerving. I back up to go around him. He steps forward, vigilant in his defense of the law. I’m off the phone now, and snapping this picture didn’t help getting him to move on. The light changes. The light changes again. Cars are now backed up behind me.

I’m not sure what comes next in a situation like this. I can either drive over him or park my car. So I put the car in park, open the door to get out and discuss the situation with him. That’s when he ran away. His mission, apparently, accomplished.

I’ll note for the record that I was absolutely violating the law. California is one of a handful of states that bans cell phone use while driving, and I was flaunting that law with careless abandon. I am now subject to a $20 fine.

Whereas blocking a street and creating a traffic hazard is a $220 fine.

And the cell phone ban hasn’t actually resulted in less accidents.

And I’ll end with this. If this Googler feels smug enough about cell phone usage to stop traffic and nearly cause an accident, then of course he’ll be quitting his job at Google soon. Because, frankly, how can he work for a guy who does the same thing that I did?

    The Tea Party is a unique populist movement and moment in American history. There is no charismatic leader of the party. The Tea Party has more grass roots movers, shakers, and members, than any populist movement ever seen in our country. So what makes it so different from previous populist political factions? “Populism” is a vague political concept. There have been populist (and wannabe populist) political movements, on the left, on the right, and even in the middle (wherever that is), in the history of American politics. None of the movements were particularly successful — and many of them were…

Another Look at Obama’s Origins

By Jack Cashill

The murky circumstances of Obama’s birth invite attempts to make the known facts fit together. This article was prompted by two emails.  The first asked me why I had never weighed in on the birth certificate controversy surrounding President Barack Obama.

I responded that although I was troubled by the lack of documentation regarding all phases of Obama’s history — I’d be content with his SAT scores — I could not understand why any pregnant American woman would go anywhere near Kenya.
The second email was more interesting.  It came from a Michigan entrepreneur named Don Wilkie, with whom I had not previously communicated.  Knowing my interest in the authorship questions surrounding Obama’s writing, he presumed that I was intrigued as he was by a cryptic poem the 19-year old Obama wrote called “Pop,” the best thing that Obama himself has actually written.  He was right.
“Pop” relates an encounter between Obama and a man most reviewers presume to be Obama’s maternal grandfather, Stanley Dunham.  Dunham would have been in his early 60′s at the time.  In the poem, Obama has “Pop” wondering drunkenly about the boy, “What to do with me, a green young man.”
The Obama of the poem is cynical, even a little bitter.  He makes several allusions to the fact that he and the old man look and even smell alike, a fact that strikes Obama as more ironic than reassuring.  The poem ends, however, with reconciliation when Pop stands and asks for a hug.  Writes Obama:
