Ron Paul stood alone in his positions on economic and foreign policy issues during the presidential election cycle of 2008. Many establishment candidates — and even debate moderators — openly mocked his views; many even laughed at him. But as national and world events have proven Ron Paul’s economic and foreign policy predictions correct, other GOP presidential aspirants are now echoing his statements.
Ignoring Ron Paul
In 2007 and 2008, all of the establishment candidates for the Republican nomination asserted that the economy was on a sound footing.
Asked about the status of the economy in an October 9, 2007 presidential debate by CNBC commentator Maria Bartiromo, Kentucky Senator Fred Thompson, a former movie actor who had just entered the presidential race as the presumed frontrunner, said: “I think there is no reason to believe that we’re headed for a recession. We’re enjoying 22 quarters of successive economic growth…. I think if you look at the short term, it’s rosy. I think if you look at a 10-year projection, it’s rosy.” Fellow frontrunner and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney followed, agreeing with Thompson. Although Romney acknowledged in a nod to the local audience that “Michigan is undergoing a one-state recession,” he added that “the rest of the country is growing and seeing low levels of unemployment.”
Only Ron Paul claimed during that debate that…..
Some people are predicting that there will be a major economic collapse, caused by unsustainable debts and other government intrusions into private economic matters, and by central banks’ excessive money-printing.
In America, the Federal Reserve’s continued irresponsible and reckless actions will result in further devaluing the currency and huge increases in price inflation, especially in food and energy prices. Some are predicting that there will be food shortages, looting, rioting, and civil unrest and violence in America.
There are some people who believe that such events will be followed by President Obama imposing a nationwide martial law. Recent terrorism drills, such as the major drill last week in Denver, are believed to be part of the U.S. government’s preparation for either terrorism or false flag events, or part of preparation for planned martial law. Obama was recently in Denver. One hopes that what former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura has documented, a possible huge underground government or military facility at the Denver airport, and other similar places, are not true.
But the subject of martial law needs to be discussed, because it’s important that the people of the U.S. states have an understanding of this before Obama imposes martial law, which is essentially a presidential-military-rule dictatorship.
Obviously, any imposition of martial law by the U.S. government would be not only a gross violation of state sovereignty, thus making the states even further subservient to the authoritarian rule of the federal government, but martial law goes against the Founders’ ideas of inalienable rights and liberty.
Martial law includes the suspension of civil liberties, such as freedom of speech and dissent, the right to bear arms and self-defense, the right to freedom of movement, and the right to…..
Facebook, the world’s biggest social network, is now building profiles of non-users who haven’t even signed up.
The sensational claim is made in a complaint filed in August by Ireland’s Data Protection Commissioner. It alleges that users are encouraged to hand over the personal data of other people — including names, phone numbers, email addresses and more — which Facebook is using to create “extensive profiles” of non-users.
Facebook categorically denies the allegation, but experts tell FoxNews.com that it could well be true.
“There can be little doubt that Facebook collects from its current users information about individuals who are not currently Facebook users, and collects from its current users information about other Facebook users,” said Kelly Kubasta, who heads the Dallas law firm Klemchuk Kubasta’s social media division. [snip]
“The allegations are false,” Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes told FoxNews.com. “We enable you to send emails to your friends, inviting them to join Facebook. We keep the invitee’s email address and name to let you know when they join the service. This practice is common among almost all services that involve invitations — from document sharing to event planning.”
“The assertion that Facebook is doing some sort of nefarious profiling is simply wrong,” Noyes added.
But that isn’t what they’re thinking in Ireland. The complaint makes clear that it believes Facebook is doing just that — and enumerates several scenarios that would give any social-networker shivers.
“Facebook Ireland is gathering excessive amounts of information about data subjects without notice or consent by the data subject,” the complaint states…”

The Australian government is calling on Britain to pardon two of its soldiers executed more than a century ago for war crimes in South Africa.
The intervention comes after the British government rejected in June a petition to pardon Lieutenants Harry ‘Breaker’ Morant and Peter Handcock, who were killed by firing squad in 1902 for murdering prisoners during the Boer War.
They are the only Australian soldiers ever executed for war crimes.
Australia said today that it would tell Britain that the pair were likely denied fair trials under the British military justice system.
The case has become folklore and underscores lingering anger among Australians over their former colonial master’s treatment of the pair, who are variously regarded as either scapegoats or murderers.
The story became famous globally in 1980 through the award-winning movie ‘Breaker Morant,’ directed by Bruce Beresford and starring Edward Woodward.
The pair were executed in Pretoria on February 27, 1902 – 18 hours after separate British courts-martial convicted them of murdering 12 prisoners a year earlier during the Boer War.
Australian Attorney General Robert McClelland said he was preparing a submission to British Defence Secretary Philip Hammond outlining alleged defects in the court-martial system, including that the defendants received inadequate legal representation and were denied access to some evidence.

PHOENIX (AP) — A federal judge Friday dismissed Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s lawsuit that accused the Obama administration of failing to enforce immigration laws or maintain control of her state’s border with Mexico.
The dismissal by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton comes in a counter-lawsuit filed by Brewer as part of the Justice Department’s challenge to Arizona’s controversial immigration enforcement law.
The Republican governor was seeking a court order that would require the federal government to take extra steps, such as more border fencing, to protect Arizona until the border is controlled.
Bolton said Brewer’s claim that Washington has failed to protect Arizona from an “invasion” of illegal immigrants was a political question that isn’t appropriate for the court to decide.
The judge also barred some of Brewer’s claims because the issues were dealt with in a 1994 case by Arizona and can’t be litigated again. Court precedent also requires the dismissal of some claims, Bolton wrote.
“While Arizona may disagree with the established enforcement priorities, Arizona’s allegations do not give rise to a claim that the counter-defendants (the federal government) have abdicated their statutory responsibilities,” Bolton wrote.
Brewer said in a written statement that she wasn’t surprised by Bolton’s ruling.
“It is but the latest chapter in a story that Arizonans know all too well: The federal government ignores its constitutional and statutory duty to secure the border. Federal courts avert their eyes….

A federal judge is standing by his guns not to allow a blogger to have any – guns, that is.
The summary suspension of 2nd Amendment rights for Mike Palmer, a 55-year-old Christian missionary from Phoenix, was issued in a complaint by Melody Thomas-Morgan of Prescott, Ariz., who charged that an online discussion was a threat to her life.
The discussion concerned the “wages of sin is death,” and the reader claimed that Palmer was threatening her with “death,” with that word in quotes in the legal filings.
Questions about guns? The ultimate searchable research guide to firearms and ammo is now on DVD …
Palmer explained, “It is true that the blog, ‘That Woman Jezebel,’ talks about spiritual life and spiritual death. … Spiritual ‘death’ as in ‘The wages of sin is death.’ (Romans 6:23) … It is not true that the blog ever mentions the ‘death’ of Miss Thomas-Morgan.”
He asked a federal court for a temporary restraining order against the state court actions, but District Judge G. Murray Snow refused to even recognize that there was an issue on which federal courts should intervene when a state court system is accused of violating the U.S. Constitution.
Now, in response to a motion for reconsideration from Palmer, Snow has dismissed him with a terse three-sentence statement that was mailed to him.
“Pending before the court is plaintiff’s emergency motion for reconsideration or alternatively motion for clarification of judge Snow’s denial of TRO. For the reasons already stated in the court’s order …, the motions will be denied. Accordingly, it is hereby ordered denying the motions,” Snow wrote.

This week on ‘The Hal Lindsey Report’
A recurring theme used in the Bible to describe the state of man in the last days is “lawlessness.” Now, I know that “lawlessness” as referred to on many occasions in the Bible means much more than small-time hoods knocking over liquor stores or mafia dons running numbers and prostitution rings.
I believe the “lawlessness” that is prophesied to characterize the last-days will be a general state of disregard and disdain for the righteous and holy, the good, the right, the lawful, even the civil. It goes without saying that we’ll see a rise in crime as the end approaches and Satan expands his influence in this world. But the Bible indicates we’ll see other expressions of “lawlessness,” too.
We Americans have been blessed to live our lives in this Republic that is founded on laws, not the whims of men. This “society of laws” is guaranteed by our Constitution, perhaps one of history’s grandest, most unique documents.
But we are witnessing a continuous erosion of the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. As our leaders display less regard for the authority of the founding document, our society suffers…..
In a rambling monologue, CNN’s Anderson Cooper desperately attempts to dismiss the accusation that CNN, and the mainstream media as a whole, are unfairly blacklisting Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, despite two scientific studies confirming that very fact.
During his 6 minute-plus rant, former CIA agent Cooper claimed the Paul campaign had lied to make money for the Congressman’s ‘Black This Out’ donation drive, by exaggerating the amount of time between when Paul was allowed to speak during this week’s CNN debate in Las Vegas, and then claiming it was a result of CNN censorship.
While it is indeed true that Paul did not go 40 minutes without speaking – a mistake for which whoever sent out the email within Paul’s campaign should be rightly chastised – the fact that Cooper devoted over 6 minutes to this not so shocking scandal just illustrates how desperate the establishment media is to hide their deliberate campaign to sideline Ron Paul – and CNN have been amongst the worst offenders second only to Fox News.
Indeed, it was CNN who discarded their own poll which showed 75% of respondents thought Ron Paul won the June New Hampshire debate, preferring instead to use a lesser known National Journal poll and then wrongly broadcasting Paul’s vote total as 0%, when in fact it was 33%.
It was CNN host Howard Kurtz who responded to guest Roger Simon’s summation on Ron Paul that “we’re gonna ignore him,” with the brazen admission, “We are in the business of kicking candidates out of the race.”
CNN have been at the forefront of the establishment media’s policy of downplaying and ostracizing Ron Paul’s presidential campaign, and for Cooper to argue otherwise is completely disingenuous.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
A new study by Pew Research Center confirms that the establishment is terrified of Ron Paul’s presidential campaign gaining momentum – figures show that despite his top tier showing in national polls, the Texan Congressman has received the least media coverage out of all the Republican candidates.
“Ron Paul loyalists have been vindicated. After months of observations that the mainstream media was ignoring the libertarian standard-bearer, a new study by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism shows just that: the Texas Congressman, who has consistently polled in the high single digits — Real Clear Politics’s aggregate poll currently has him at 8 percent — has received the least overall coverage of any candidate. From May 2 to October 9, Paul appeared as the “primary newsmaker in only 2% of all election stories,” reports the Atlantic Wire’s John Hudson.
The figures, compiled from a list of 52 of the top mainstream news sources encompassing newspapers, cable news, and broadcast television, show that even the likes of Tom Pawlenty, who quit his candidacy last month due to lack of support, and John Huntsman, have received significantly more mainstream press coverage than Paul.
It’s not just news coverage where Paul has been deliberately sidelined. A scientific study undertaken by the University of Minnesota also shows that Paul has been given the least speaking time out of all the candidates during the Republican debates so far.
The former CIA agent doth protest too much, methinks. Cooper’s nitpicking on a single exaggerated claim in a Paul campaign email is a smokescreen and ignores the scientifically confirmed fact that despite being a top tier candidate according to the national polls, Paul has received the least mainstream news coverage and the least debate time out of all the Republican candidates.

Greatest Crisis Since The Civil War

One Tuesday, President Obama was interviewed by ABC’s Jake Tapper. Tapper has been the only journalist in the White House Press Corp who has been willing to ask tough questions and his relationship with Press Secretary Jay Carney has been contentious at best. The White House has been curt not only with Tapper but any journalist who dares confront the administration about an ever growing list of scandals and failed policy decisions which is why the President’s decision to sit down with Tapper was so surprising. During the interview they discussed a variety of topics ranging from the economy and the election to the Fast and Furious scandal to the President’s faltering Jobs Bill.
The most remarkable statement that President Obama made was in response to next year’s Presidential election, he said “I guarantee it’s going to be a close election because the economy is not where it wants to be. The President finished the thought with this shocking revelation “I believe all the choices we’ve made have been the right ones.”
As the interview progressed, the President continued with his three-year strategy of passing the buck and blaming the previous Administration for the economy. It’s highly unlikely that President Obama will ever look in the mirror and realize he is at the epicenter of America’s economic woes. During the interview he told Tapper that the American people don’t think I caused the problem. To be sure, the economy was already headed south prior to Obama taking office, however, his economic policies have definitely exacerbated America’s economic woes. For the first time during his Presidency, the majority of Americans now believe Obama is the cause of our economic troubles according to a recent Gallup Poll.
President Obama also continues to blame the Republican Party for his inability to pass legislation

Rep. Michele Bachmann said she was surprised to hear that her entire New Hampshire campaign staff had apparently quit en masse today, even though they “had not been paid for a month,” one of the departing staffers told ABC News.
Hours after initial reports of the mass exodus, Bachmann told Iowa Radio this afternoon that she was unaware that her staff had quit and said the reports were not true.
“That is a shocking story to me,” the Minnesota congresswoman said.

Congressman Ron Paul introduced H.R. 1831, the “Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011,” on May 11. It is a simple bill at just two pages in length, and it would legalize the growing of industrial hemp in the United States.
Currently farmers can grow industrial hemp only if they have received a permit from the DEA – a prospect that the agency has made all but impossible for decades. Otherwise, it is illegal to grow.
Although Rep. Paul has introduced several bills like this one in the past, there are several reasons that this bill should be passed now. Hemp has an amazing number of uses. Its fiber can be used in carpeting, home furnishings, construction materials, auto parts, textiles, and paper. Its seeds can be used in food, industrial oils, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.

Harold Camping’s only words to reporters the day before what he has claimed will be the world’s last day were: “We’re not having a conversation. There’s nothing to report here,” according to Reuters.
Wearing a bathrobe and using a walker outside of his Alameda, Calif., home, the doomsday preacher chuckled as reporters tried to get comments from him Thursday regarding the supposed Rapture that, as of Friday afternoon, appears not to be happening.
However, Camping did say the Oct. 21 rapture would be “quiet.”
Months after Camping’s second prediction of a May 21 Judgment Day, the doomsday “prophet” said that no one noticed it because it was a “spiritual” judgment and that the physical end would “probably” come on Oct. 21. Camping, 90, added that people might not even notice because “there will be no pain suffered by anyone because of their rebellion against God. Unbelievers might just fall asleep and never wake up.”
However, according to an expert on doomsday cults, Camping gave himself an easy, linguistic way out.
Catherine Wessinger, who studies doomsday groups at Loyola University in New Orleans and is the editor of The Oxford Handbook of Millennialism, told NPR that Camping is using a common trick among doomsday leaders.
When prophecy fails, she says, “the person making the prediction can give themselves a way out, sort of a backdoor way of getting out of the prediction. Or on the other hand, when nothing happens, the event can be spiritualized.”
Reuters also reported that Local American Legion officer Ron Parshall, 70, who meets at a veterans group in an adjacent room next to where Camping holds prayer services on Sundays, said he saw the preacher about a month ago, and that Camping showed no outward signs of debilitation and “wasn’t limping at all.”
“He was a nice man,” Parshall said, adding, “He was just too radical for me. Anyone who claims to be that close to God, I take it with a grain of salt.”
Here in the Peoples Democratic Utopian Workers Paradise of Massachusetts, we are being clubbed daily by AARP ads on TV. I mean every 15-20 minutes (what does this cost, anyway). An actor portraying an angry senior tells the viewer that “AARP’s 50 million members” (total bullshit) will be watching politicians closely to ensure there are “no cuts in our earned benefits of Social Security and Medicare.” Behind him stand an army of angry, restless seniors, glaring over his shoulder at the camera. The threatening nature of this ad is indesputable: vote against Obama and you are dead political meat.
As an honest senior I have to say: bullshit. What I earned in Social Security and Medicare should last me another eleven years based upon what I contributed. After that, it’s pure tansfer payments from the 2022 workforce and beyond.
I find these bullying terror tactics unsat. I find the vile AARP’s lies even more unsat. It has been a wholly owned subsidiary of George Soros and the DNC for decades. Alas, it will only get worse as we approach November, 2012. Perhaps by then Obama will have been successful in imposing martial law as other Dems are urging. No ads will be needed after that.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., drew heavy criticism from fellow Democrats and his Republican colleagues for demanding President Barack Obama suspend the U.S. Constitution and declare a national jobs emergency.
Jackson told The Daily Caller last week that the president should use “extra-constitutional” authority to resolve the employment crisis by creating jobs outside of the normal legislative process. His comments drew immediate criticism from his primary opponent as well as other members of the House of Representatives.
Former congresswoman Debbie Halvorson, Jackson’s Democratic opponent in next year’s primary election, said he has failed to introduce a jobs bill during his 16 years in the House.

Culled from the thousands the White House Correspondence Office receives each day from Americans who have taken the time to sit down and write to their president,” the letters “help him focus on the real problems people are facing,” said then-senior adviser David Axelrod.
Some of these, maybe two or three each day, the President responds to in his own hand.
Then-White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told us that before two different economic speeches, the President “pulled letters he has gotten and distributed them to staff, to understand what people were going through.”
The White House is now cooperating with a book about those letters, written by the Washington Post’s Eli Saslow, who says that sometimes the president has written a check to help his correspondents. “A few times during his presidency, Obama admitted, he had written a personal check or made a phone call on the writer’s behalf, believing that it was his only way to ensure a fast result,” Saslow wrote in the Post.

With the most recent GOP presidential primary “debate” just concluded, it’s clear that the frontrunner is none other than … you guessed it, Barack Hussein Obama. The incessant bickering bullpucky and petty assaults among most of the GOP wannabes is undoubtedly a source of great glee for the Obama campaign.

An unambiguous message must be sent to the Republican leadership that the American people are no longer willing to accept the status quo; that we will not vote for any Republican who refuses to support and defend the Constitution and uphold the rule of law by not speaking out against Obama’s ineligibility and crimes.
By protecting him, Ryan and other Republican leaders have proven themselves no better than Obama.
Corrupt politicians are tolerating the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people and undermining the foundations of our country.
Republican leaders have a choice; either they can help the American people restore our republic or they can follow Obama to national Armageddon.
Choose wisely now because later we will not lift a finger to save you if you don’t.
To know what is wrong with the Federal Reserve, one must first understand the nature of money. Money is like any other good in our economy that emerges from the market to satisfy the needs and wants of consumers. Its particular usefulness is that it helps facilitate indirect exchange, making it easier for us to buy and sell goods because there is a common way of measuring their value. Money is not a government phenomenon, and it need not and should not be managed by government. When central banks like the Fed manage money they are engaging in price fixing, which leads not to prosperity but to disaster.
The Federal Reserve has caused every single boom and bust that has occurred in this country since the bank’s creation in 1913. It pumps new money into the financial system to lower interest rates and spur the economy. Adding new money increases the supply of money, making the price of money over time—the interest rate—lower than the market would make it. These lower interest rates affect the allocation of resources, causing capital to be malinvested throughout the economy. So certain projects and ventures that appear profitable when funded at artificially low interest rates are not in fact the best use of those resources.
Eventually, the economic boom created by the Fed’s actions is found to be unsustainable, and the bust ensues as this malinvested capital manifests itself in a surplus of capital goods, inventory overhangs, etc. Until these misdirected resources are put to a more productive use—the uses the free market actually desires—the economy stagnates.

In New Ads Ron Paul Slams Romney, Cain On Support For Bailouts Republicans Debate.JPEG 0fd
Ron Paul has polled third in a new Rasmussen Iowa GOP caucus poll released this week, while Rick Perry came in a distant sixth with 7% of the vote.
The Congressman pulled in 10% of the vote tally, while Romney totaled 21% and Herman Cain received 28% of the vote.
The poll of 800 likely Iowa Republican caucus participants was undertaken after the CNN debate in Las Vegas.
The survey dovetails with a recent Public Policy Polling poll of likely Iowa voters that also found Paul in third place with 10%.
Rasmussen notes, however, that “Only one-third of the caucus-goers (32%) are certain of their vote and don’t expect to change their mind. Among these voters, 30% prefer Cain, 22% Romney, and 17% Paul.”
Given Cain’s lackluster performance in the most recent debate, the subsequent focus on the flaws in his 9-9-9 plan, and Ron Paul’s announcement of his “Restore America” economic blueprint, the only plan to balance the budget from any candidate, it will be interesting to see how the poll numbers change in the days and weeks to come.
The Paul campaign yesterday announced the release of two new broadcast ads, part of the multi million dollar promotional buy that the campaign has undertaken.
Paul’s website notes that the ads “capitalize on the aggressive posture Dr. Paul displayed during his Las Vegas, Nevada “Plan to Restore America” launch.”
The first ad is a 30 second spot entitled simply “Plan”, that summarizes the Congressman’s “Plan to Restore America”.
“The absolutely positive reception of Ron Paul’s ‘Plan to Restore America’ means we’re obligated to meet an even higher standard of outreach and discussion,” said Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton, a “Plan to Restore America” co-author.
“No other Republican candidate’s economic plan matches that of Dr. Paul’s, so in turn we thought it only right to follow with a worthy campaign advertising effort,” said Mr. Benton.
Meanwhile, Paul’s Senior Adviser Bruce Fein writes in an editorial today:
“Ron Paul is the sole 2012 presidential candidate who doesn’t sound an uncertain trumpet when it comes to balancing the budget and shrinking the federal Leviathan. All the others hedge their promises with weasel words or abstractions.”
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
The second ad is a 60-second spot titled “Consistent”. The ad compares Paul’s flawless constitutional voting record with the records of his establishment opponents Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, who have all flip flopped on a number of issues and supported big government legislation such as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP.
“I’ve been talking about these issues for a long, long time – we are bankrupt and we must decide which way we are going to go,” Paul says in the ad.
The ads will run for the next fortnight in the key early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.
The Paul campaign also announced that it has drawn another $2 million from its latest “money bomb,” to add to the $3.5 million still left on hand from the last quarter.
It is the ultimate event for which there should never be a sequel. But the end of the world will come again today, according to a Doomsday prophet who predicted the Apocalypse would arrive five months ago. California preacher Harold Camping stirred a global frenzy when he prophesised that the all life would be wiped out in the rapture on May 21 with a series of earthquakes followed by months of torment for those left behind.

Timing is everything. Qaddafi was not killed in retaliation for his attacks on American servicemen in Berlin in 1986, or the downing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie in 1989. He was not killed for his central role in the USSR’s terror networks going back to the 1960s and 1970s. He was killed after coming over to our side of George Bush’s “war on terror” in the final phase of a civil war in Libya in which his regime fought al Qaeda affiliates.
Horrific as it sounds, Qaddafi was killed because we and our NATO allies joined the other side — the al Qaeda affiliates.

Dear Friends and Supporters:
I need your help today with a special project.
The Arizona Democrat Party just released a television ad attacking me for doing my job.
They’re using this as a fundraising tool in an effort to fill their coffers and defeat me in the next election. This is despicable.
The irony of their ad is that they spend the first half of it quoting me in snippets from past interviews where I say the following:

More important than the raw figures is the rate per 100,000 individuals. Murder did go up—though the rate did not double from 2009 to 2010, as Biden claimed. But rape has gone down. Biden actually asserted it had tripled.

One of his supporters yelled out to him, “Give ‘em Hell, Harry!” Truman responded, “I don’t give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them and they think it’s Hell.”
That is precisely the reason why there is a war on Christians waged by members of the secular media.
Christians speak the truth about God’s best for humanity as it applies to morality, laws and governing principles, but the secular media views these truths as Hell. Truth always feels like Hell to those who reject, deny, or hate the truth.
When Bible-believing Christians share that there is only one true God who is lovingly inviting people to believe in Him and receive His redemption, or face His coming judgment, that is Hell to those who view themselves as their own gods—masters of their own fates. Many of these self-made gods control our media.
As gods, they want no competition. They reject the truth that God is God alone and that He will hold them accountable for mocking Him and His followers. Thus, the truth is Hell to them, even before they get there. They express their hatred for God’s truth by heaping venom on anyone who declares God’s truth.
Bible-believing Christians proclaim the truth about the biblical principles that guided this nation’s founders. But those who are rewriting American history to fit their desire for self-worship want to silence them. Thus, whenever a Christian lovingly and thoughtfully points them to the truth of history, they hound them down, accusing them of “racism,” “hate speech,” and “bigotry.” Why?
Because truth to them is Hell, so they want to muzzle Christians and their message.
When Bible-believing Christians declare that there are moral absolutes that all men must live by, and that when these moral absolutes are tampered with curses and not blessings will follow…it really angers them. It sets their teeth on edge.
To them these truths are Hell, so they respond by likening Christians to the Taliban and the Jihadis…can you imagine?
The Christians who founded the hospital movement.
The Christians who founded the library movement.
The Christians who founded the orphanage movement.
The Christians who founded education.
The Christians who have and continue to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and care for the needy.
The Christians who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice in following the role model of their Savior who gave His all on a cross to save them. How can they say that Christians are likened to the Taliban?
The Taliban who shoot women in the head at close range in soccer stadiums.
The Taliban who bury people alive for their sins and misdemeanors.
The Taliban who stone women to death for mere accusations.
If I were a rich man, I would offer these self-worshipping gods of the secular media a six month trip to Afghanistan or Iran. If they ever returned from such a trip, they would be changed men and women.
My concern is that the very truth that can set them free is the truth they attack. I know why they attack it—because it feels like Hell to them. It is condemning. However, my heart is not to condemn them, but to pray to God to open their blind eyes, just like He opened mine, so that they may see the truth before it is too late for them.
Comrade Chairman You Lie Obama has a section in his current buy-the-union-vote “Jobs” bill to send US Federal money, ( borrowed 60 % from our grandchildren and 40 % from China and other countries ), to various financially irresponsible States, Cities and Labor Unions.
Talk-the-talk-but-couldn’t-walk-the-walk G. W. Bush in 2008 sent a TARP full of Federal money to all big banks, whether they were financially irresponsible or not. This Jack-booted style was seized upon by You Lie Obama to send even more Federal money to financially irresponsible businesses such as General Motors, and many financially irresponsible State and local governments.
The looney smokescreen called “To Big to Fail” was used by the “to big to fail” US Federal Government to call out businesses (including banks) as being “to big to fail.” This blame-the-other-guy Kindergarden tactic was bought hook-line-and-sinker by our truly sorry, “watch-dog,” main stream media.
The result is that Spendaholic GWB and Spendaholic, Debt-Greedy Obama have caused the US Federal Government to enter a terminal financial death spiral. Thus, these two financially irresponsible politicians have proven that The US Federal Government was NOT “to big to fail.”
For those who disagree, remember that both politicians destroyed 4 TRILLION dollars EACH. Obviously, the buck never stopped with them.
When taxes are collected from those with the ability to generate wealth, and then re-distributed to those incapable of producing wealth, I say that this “transfer payment” procedure is based on Karl Marx’s core philosophy which is as follows: “FROM EACH ACCORDING TO HIS ABILITY, TO EACH ACCORDING TO HIS NEED.”
What say you?
In the real world, those who are looking for a tireless, consistent champion of “limited government,” “individual rights,” “states’ rights,” and the like — i.e. “conservatives” and constitutionallist Republicans — know that there is but one person in the field of GOP presidential candidates to whom they can turn. That person, of course, is Congressman Ron Paul. In the real world, of this field of candidates, the former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, has a record that exposes him as the least likely of such candidates to advance these principles.
But in the parallel universe that the Paulophobe labors incessantly to create, Mitt Romney is the GOP’s “frontrunner” while Ron Paul is treated as if he is marginal at best, non-existent at worst.
In the real world, Ron Paul has proven himself second to none in eliciting as devoted and enthusiastic a following as any politician of our generation — including Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. This is no mean feat at a time when the electorate seems to have become as disenchanted with politicians as it has ever been. At least as impressive is that this following is as substantial in size and diverse in quality as it is loyal to their candidate.
In the Paulophobe’s alternate reality, however,
It is imperative that Ron Paul gets on the ballot next year if we are going stop the wars and return fiscal sanity to the nation.
Many Democrats and other so-called progressives are beginning to realize that Paul is the only candidate who will put an end to the wars and the escalating body count.
If they want to see him get nominated and run against Obama, many of them will have to register as Republicans, as distasteful as that prospect is.
The video above explains how to get Paul on the ballot.
If Obama is re-elected or Romney or Perry or some other hopeful hand-picked by the establishment wins the election, the wars will continue uninterrupted and the economic destruction of America will ultimately turn all of us into slaves.
Ron Paul is the only option.
Secretary of State Clinton was unable to keep her professional composure yesterday when told about the alleged murder of deposed Libyan leader Gaddafi at the hands of al-Qaeda. She had a good laugh over the gruesome act.
“We came, we saw, he died,” she joked in between formal interviews.
Paraphrasing Caesar is appropriate – the dictator took Rome from a republic to an empire. Like Caesar, Clinton’s boss, Obama, took the nation to war without consulting Congress or gaining the consent of the American people.
Clinton’s gleeful if ghoulish comment also reveals the degree of her psychosis. Most people do not laugh when told about the murder of others, even rivals. Clinton is unable to contain herself and displays her joy at the news of Gaddafi’s violent death.
Some regulations are needed to protect critical networks that control electrical power, banking, transportation and other key elements of society, Army Gen. Keith Alexander, who is also director of the National Security Agency, said after a speech to a security conference.

The literal translation of “perestroika” means “restructuring,” but Gorbachev’s past comments overwhelmingly illustrate the fact that the former Communist icon is calling for America to experience a Soviet-style collapse before it can be re-absorbed as a vassal state that is subordinate to a UN-run global government.
The former Soviet leader has long been an advocate of transforming the United Nations and its affiliated offshoots into an architecture of global government, eviscerating American sovereignty in the process.
For decades, Jack Daniel’s whiskey has celebrated its small Tennessee hometown of Lynchburg with folksy, black-and-white advertisements urging folks to slow down and have a sip.
Now local officials want the maker of the world’s top-selling whiskey to pay a bigger bar tab as they struggle with their budget. How does up to $5 million sound?
A measure approved by the Moore County Council asks the Tennessee legislature to authorize a local referendum on whether the distillery should pay that much in new taxes on the 500,000 barrels it fills with whiskey each year.

(Oct. 20, 2011) — A citizen researcher is compiling data on how many letters regarding the question of Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president have been sent to members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
We know that Lucas Daniel Smith sent personalized letters to every member of the U.S. Congress in early September 2010. Are there readers who have done the same? If so, please let us know to which representatives your certified letters were sent, when you received the green confirmation card back, or if you sent a certified letter but did not receive the green card…..
Disregarding American public sentiment — weariness of years of war in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya and robust drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia — President Barack Obama is now involving the United States in another potential quagmire, this time in Central Africa. At the urging of humanitarian groups, he is dispatching about 100 U.S. Special Forces troops to four Central African nations — Uganda, Congo, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic — to help combat the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a guerrilla group that regularly kidnaps or attacks civilians in those countries.
Allegedly, the Special Forces, who will be armed, are not to take direct military action against the LRA (except in self-defense) but are only to train, assist, and advise the Central African armies. In reality, if U.S. forces are patrolling with these armies when they are attacked, Americans could certainly be ensnared in many shooting battles. For the United States, the Vietnam quagmire started with American advisers fighting with South Vietnamese forces in the field.
DOWAGIAC, Mich. – Classrooms were noticeably empty at Union High School on Thursday. It’s been almost a week since administrators banned students from wearing anything with the confederate flag.
Since then, things at the school have been tense, “It’s been really hectic, pretty awkward,” Brittany Williams said.
Thursday was a half day for students, Williams and her friend spent the day downtown trying to escape the controversy at the high school.
“They need to stop, they’re doing it on purpose just to agitate people,” Williams said.
To her, it’s not just the Confederate flag she finds offensive, it’s the students who are wearing it and their reasoning behind it. “A lot of them don’t interact with black people,” Williams said. “So a lot of them I think are being racist.”
“We’re just standing up for what we believe in,” Wayne Matthews said. He’s one of the students who helped pass out t-shirts before school Wednesday morning. His mother made thirty-two Confederate flag t-shirts and stacked them up in the back of her trunk.
Williams lives next door to the Matthews family, “They’ve never liked us and we never did anything to them, so I do think it’s because we’re black.”
Matthews said this has nothing to do with race; it’s about his right to freely express himself. To him, the Confederate flag does not represent any one race. “It stands for people that believe in what the Civil War is about and it stands for Southern pride,” Matthews said.
First it was airports. Then it was bus and train stations. Now, under the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program, even the highways aren’t safe from the TSA’s prying eyes and probing fingers.
“Tennessee is now the first state ever to work with the TSA to deploy a simultaneous counterterrorism operation statewide,” according to Nashville’s WTVF-TV. That operation, which involved the TSA along with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security (TDSHS) and state and local police, was deployed at “five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state,” the station reports.
It was a two-pronged approach, the report adds. Government agents were “recruiting truck drivers … into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something.” At the same time, “the Tennessee Highway Patrol checked trucks with drug and bomb sniffing dogs during random inspections.”
Geller said the decision came about because the hotel was “intimidated” into censoring her planned speech by “CAIR thugs,” referring to the controversial Islamic advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations.

She said pressure from Islamic interests ultimately pressed the hotel to cancel her address to tea party members who had set up the event.
Tea-party backers, then, were forced to find another location, the Sugar Land Community Center, on virtually no notice, Geller said.
“Free speech, the cornerstone of our constitutional republic, is in serious jeopardy,” Geller reported today after being informed of the sudden change. “Under the Shariah, criticism of Islam is blasphemy (punishable by death in Muslim countries). This is the death of free speech in the continuing Islamization of America.”

A Hyatt employee in Sugar Land, who identified himself only as Brandon, told WND the abrupt change was a “business” decision. But when asked about the links between CAIR and terror, he slammed the phone down.

“Providence,” he writes, “has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people — a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion … very similar in their manners and customs …”
In “Suicide of a Superpower,” out this week, I argue that the America we grew up in is disintegrating, breaking apart along the fault lines of politics, race, ethnicity, culture and faith; that the centrifugal forces in society have now become the dominant forces.
Our politics are as poisonous as they have been in our lifetimes.
Sarah Palin was maligned as morally complicit in the murder attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Terms like “terrorists” and “hostage-takers” are routinely used on Tea Party members who one congressman said want to see blacks “hanging on a tree.”
Half a century after the civil rights revolution triumphed, the terms “racist” and “racism” are in daily use. We remain, said Eric Holder in calling us a “nation of cowards,” as socially segregated as ever.
“Outside the workplace, the situation is even more bleak in that there is almost no significant interaction between us. On Saturdays and Sundays, America … does not, in some ways, differ significantly from the country that existed some 50 years ago.”

Buchanan: GOP Risks Third Party Revolt with Romney Candidacy:
The GOP could face a revolt from within its tea party grassroots base if it nominates an establishment candidate without true conservative, anti-big government values, one of America’s leading conservative pundits tells Newsmax.TV in an exclusive interview.
Specifically, columnist and former Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan told Newsmax that the nomination of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the architect of a state insurance plan that many say inspired Obamacare, could prompt the tea party movement to form a third party.
“It’s a real possibility because the tea party folks and the Republican conservatives and social conservatives and others are very apprehensive of Mitt Romney and they don’t feel he is really one of us,” Buchanan told Newsmax.

(Col Sellin) Rep. Paul Ryan Protects Obama, Ignores the Constitution:
READER RESPONSE: Aee lso the article, responses, etc. Click @ title/link…
I fear the only redress is complete collapse.
I question too all Republicans who ignore Obama’s felonies and usurpations. What are Republicans afraid of?
Is there some darker evil under the surface we are not aware of that is the hand of government? Or are they just concerned about not getting invited to cocktail parties?
