The Obama administration’s blueprint for control of the United States of America comes directly from the world’s richest and best marketed environmental organization: Greenpeace.

The secret to Greenpeace success: “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true…You are what the media define you to be.” (Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Watson).

There is no stopping Greenpeace which is kept afloat by millions of dollars in public contributions from gullible people who bought the version of Greenpeace as Peter Pans of the ocean out there saving the whales. There is no stopping Obama, whose lies are carried as truth by a massive mainstream media. (Canada Free Press, 2001)

Interesting to note that “the cynical description of the organization Greenpeace comes not from some right-winger annoyed at the excess of the environmentalist movement but from Paul Watson, cofounder of Greenpeace and now the director of a…

A senior officer in General David Petraeus‘s support staff, who was fired for publicly criticising the US military’s “PowerPoint culture”, has issued a fresh broadside against what he says is a bloated, ineffective bureaucracy at America’s headquarters in Afghanistan.

Colonel Lawrence Sellin was fired from his role after he wrote a column attacking the system for using relentless slide-show presentations to “cognitively challenged” generals instead of formulating coherent policy.

Col Sellin, a 61-year-old army reservist, said he had no regrets about his action and that others at the main base of the International Security Assistance Force in Kabul congratulated him for speaking out.

“I am not sorry at all. I think there are a lot of people who feel this way even on Petraeus’s own staff,” he told Army Times. “Colonels came up to me and shook hands and said ‘you were right’.”He said the article was an attempt to challenge the conduct of the war after he grew disillusioned with his role. “I had added no value to the war effort,” he said.

He had emailed his superiors suggesting ways to improve the headquarters’ efficiency, but to no avail.Soon afterwards Col Sellin, who had also served in Iraq, wrote an article for the United Press International agency, saying:

“For headquarters staff, war consists largely of the endless tinkering with PowerPoint slides to conform with the idiosyncrasies of cognitively challenged generals in order to spoon-feed them information.”…..

Why nation needs debate on eligibility (“It’s not my contempt for Obama alone that drives my passion on this. I want to see America overcome Obama. I would like for history to judge him as a completely failed leader – someone who sparked a renaissance of love and respect for the Constitution and the Founding Fathers and what they bequeathed to us”)

Almost four years into Barack Obama’s first term, it’s time for a national debate on eligibility – the one I’ve been trying to stimulate for five years.It’s not just about Obama – as I’ve said all along.It’s about the Constitution and its meaning – its original intent, if you will.

Do you believe, as I do, that the Founding Fathers were especially gifted men, inspired by God, learned, who adopted biblical principles and created the second, after the nation of Israel, deliberately self-governing nation in the history of the world?Is that concept worth trying to maintain – to keep alive?If so, the issue of presidential eligibility is paramount.We can’t afford to ignore it. We can’t afford to sweep it under the rug because it is politically inconvenient. We can’t afford to put it off for another time. Now is the time, as we approach the first presidential election in what could be a post-Obama America.Will we allow the taint of Obama to dumb-down constitutional standards in hopes of returning to constitutional standards? It’s crazy to believe that.Obama doesn’t respect the Constitution. He seems to hate it. Even his own rhetoric suggests that.

That’s why we can ill afford to see the Republican Party, which claims to still believe in the Constitution, nominate for president or vice president someone who does not meet the standard of eligibility –without question and without free and open debate.I can surely understand why liberal Democratic voices don’t want to have such a debate. They want Obama to be re-elected, and they want all constitutional restraints on who can seek the presidency and vice presidency to go the way of the horse and buggy.What I cannot understand is why conservative and Republican voices want to allow the aberration of Obama to forever set new low standards of constitutional eligibility.And I know I am not alone.

It’s not my contempt for Obama alone that drives my passion on this. I want to see America overcome Obama. I would like for history to judge him as a completely failed leader – someone who sparked a renaissance of love and respect for the Constitution and the Founding Fathers and what they bequeathed to us.

The Kingdom Of God Will Not Arrive On Air Force One | Western Journalism.com

As we work through this political season I’m reminded of Chuck Colson’s quote, “The kingdom of God will not arrive on Air Force One no matter how good the president’s character or great his ability.

Don’t get me wrong: Elections are important; the law is a moral teacher. But all the laws and political victories will not help us if we lose the culture. Our job is the same no matter who is in office: that is, to make serious disciples and to bring Christian truth to bear in all of life.” America is in need of a spiritual Awakening; no politician can accomplish this.“In 1739 arrived among us from Ireland the Reverend Mr. Whitefield, who had58 The Kingdom Of God Will Not Arrive On Air Force Onemade himself remarkable there as an itinerant preacher. He was at first permitted to preach in some of our churches; but the clergy, taking a dislike to him, soon refused him their pulpits, and he was obliged to preach in the fields.

The multitudes of all sects and denominations that attended his sermons were enormous, and it was matter of speculation to me, who was one of the number, to observe the extraordinary influence of his oratory on his hearers, and how much they admired and respected him, notwithstanding his common abuse of them, by assuring them they were naturally half beast and half devils.

It was wonderful to see the change soon made in the manners of our inhabitants. From being thoughtless or indifferent about religion, it seemed as if all the world were growing religious, so that one could not walk thro’ the town in an evening without hearing psalms sung in different families of every street.”

Has Sarah Palin just announced her candidacy for president? On Wednesday night she told Fox Business host Eric Bolling that she still has the fire in her belly and is still game to run for office.

More telling, however, is what she said about the current GOP nomination battle and the possibility of a brokered convention.Palin’s comments leading into the South Carolina primary, encouraging people to vote for Newt Gingrich because the party is strengthened by a long primary battle, were bewildering at the time.“I want to see this thing continue, because iron sharpens iron, steel sharpens steel. If I had to vote in South Carolina to keep this thing going, I’d vote for Newt and I would want this to continue.”Leaving aside metallurgical analysis comparing honing knife blades to the hammer blows of negative campaign ads, the comments were incomprehensible from a strategic point of view. Gingrich at that time was administering a beating to the entire capitalist system, with his attacks on Romney’s wealth and the investment world.
