Obama to Keynote Event of Gay Group That Promotes LGBT Curriculum in Elementary Schools

CNS News  "– President Barack Obama will speak on Saturday at the Human Right Campaign’s (HRC) annual dinner in Washington, D.C. – the HRC is a pro-homosexual lobbying group that, among things, is promoting a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender-inclusive curricula for children in elementary school."

"The HRC’s description of “What Welcoming Schools Offer” states, in part, the following:
Curriculum must be LGBT inclusive starting in elementary school for the following reasons:....

Al Qaeda infighting led to Awkali killing in Yemen. Ayman Zawhiri is in Yemen

DEBKAfile  "The tip-off which enabled two American drone-borne Hellfire missiles to kill the US-born Anwar al-Awkali by locating his convoy in the Khashef in the Jawf province of Yemen, 140 kilometers east of the capital Sanaa, reached US intelligence as a result of a power struggle within Al Qaeda's leadership in Yemen.
"Killed too was a second US-born al Qaeda operative. (Good grief, don't tell Ron Paul!)
DEBKAfile's counter-terror sources disclose that the internal strife which led to their deaths was sharpened by the recent arrival in Yemen of the new Al Qaeda leader Ayman Zuwahiri.
DEBKAfile exclusive.

Oh, the stupidity out there! Cornell Belcher: Cain's "Brainwashed" Remark Was "Racist, Bigoted"
RealClearPolitics  "Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher says there is a media "double-standard" over Herman Cain saying blacks have been "brainwashed." Belcher calls Mr. Cain a bigot and a racist and says this incident is a "teachable moment." "  Just when you thought every race card imaginable had been played, he comes up with this one.
Also here.

Here's everything you could want to read on this. Maybe more.

Krauthammer: Land without peace: Why Abbas went to the U.N.

Charles Krauthammer  "...Abbas responded by boycotting the talks for nine months, showing up in the 10th, then walking out when the freeze expired. Last week he reiterated that he will continue to boycott peace talks unless Israel gives up — in advance — claim to any territory beyond the 1967 lines. Meaning, for example, that the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem is Palestinian territory. This is not just absurd. It violates every prior peace agreement. They all stipulate that such demands are to be the subject of negotiations, not their precondition."

"Abbas unwaveringly insists on the so-called "right of return", which would demographically destroy Israel by swamping it with millions of Arabs, thereby turning the world’s only Jewish state into the world’s 23rd Arab state. And he has repeatedly declared, as recently as last week in New York: “We shall not recognize a Jewish state.” "

Iranian Pastor Sentenced to Death; To Die Today: Nadarkhani Refuses to Convert

Voice of the Martyrs
International Business Times  "Before his last hearing Wednesday, Nadarkhani had been given three previous chances to repent, and all three times he has refused. After his final refusal Wednesday, no verdict has been announced, but many expect that he could be put to death as soon as Friday.
"The case has slowly garnered international attention, and there are a number of Christian rights groups advocating for his release."

Iranian Christians International

C.S. Lewis : "You never know how much you really believe anything
until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you."
"At the recent hearings, the court in Rasht ruled that Pastor Youcef was not a practicing Muslim before becoming a Christian but that he remains guilty of apostasy because of his Muslim ancestry."

Apostasy in Islam
In the Islamist's view, everyone is born a Muslim and leaves it later. Ergo, one does not "convert" to Islam; one "reverts" to Islam.

Ron Paul: US-born al-Qaida cleric 'assassinated'

Anwar al-Awlaki
Associated Press  "Paul, a Texas congressman known for libertarian views, says the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki on Yemeni soil amounts to an "assassination." Paul warned the American people not to casually accept such violence against U.S. citizens, even those with strong ties to terrorism."

In a related story, the ACLU condemned the union forces of President Lincoln, Republican, for opening fire on the forces of General Pickett at Gettysburg. They should have waited for them to approach Union positions, arrested them and given them due process, which these American citizens were denied.

American Thinker: Al-Alwaki meets death from above   "I have no sympathy at all for Alwaki, and am glad the man is dead. But knowing that our president can order an American killed with no apparent checks and balances ought to give us all pause. We need to create a better legal framework for operations, one which respects our constitutional order, appropriate to the era of Islamic terror."

Did American forces kill any of these guys: Columnist recounts tale of German-Americans fighting for Nazis ?

From April, 2010:  Why Is It Legal to Kill Anwar al-Awlaki? "When I asked Karen Greenberg of NYU’s Center on Law and Security whether al-Awlaki could be lawfully assassinated last month, she scoffed, “They can’t do this with al-Awlaki. He is an American citizen, born in New Mexico. They can’t take away his citizenship.”  Soooo, we should have arrested him how?

Obama the Nation-Splitter

Freedom of religion and of expression under attack by liberals

 Groups press Obama on religious hiring
The Moral Liberal  "The letter claims the executive order allows faith-based groups to discriminate against potential employees on the basis of religion and urges the administration to replace the policy with one that could force religious organizations contracting with the government to disregard their convictions when hiring."....
"As Jennifer Marshall and Joseph Loconte pointed out in a Heritage Foundation paper:
“There is no more vital protection for organizations with a religiously-rooted approach to social assistance than the freedom to hire according to their convictions. The leadership and staff of an organization determine its destiny. They alone will carry out its mission, uphold its priorities, and embody its deepest values. If the First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty does not protect the employment decisions of faith-based organizations - their right to free association - then it has become a meaningless abstraction.”

 Religious Leaders to the President: Don't Curtail Our Religious Hiring Freedom
"Activists are again pressing the Obama administration to curtail religious hiring by religious organizations that receive government funding."
 So far it doesn't affect the average church, but give 'em time. Liberals never sleep and they must always seek remedies for their guilt-ridden lives.
pdf of the letter here.

Religious Freedom in Canada:   Chris Kempling delivered this address on March 4, 2005 in New York City to a United Nations Commission on Human Rights Delegate Briefing. He received a standing ovation.
If Christians say publicly that they disapprove of homosexual behaviour because the Bible declares it to be immoral, then that is "promoting hatred". If they quote medical statistics about the HIV infection rates of homosexual men, that is "promoting hatred". If they object to their children being indoctrinated in kindergarten class with information about homosexuality, they are hateful people.
Suppression of free speech is further advanced in Canada. Watch Canada to see where America is headed under liberalism. Are we headed for Canadian-style star chambers?  See examples of star chambers in action:

...Western society may be irrevocably altered — and not for the better — by unassimilated Muslim immigration.
Ezra Levant Mows Down the Canadian Star Chambers:
Levant and the secret trial.

Levant commented on his "favorable" result: (Emphasis fervently added)
His decision is not that I have freedom of speech. His decision is that I have his approval. I'm not interested in his approval. The only test of free speech is if I can write what he disapproves of with impunity.

Our White House Bully Problem

Michelle Malkin  "Team Obama continues to pressure and intimidate its critics."

...."A WFAA-TV Texas reporter was dressed down by the president for having the audacity to interrupt.
"The Boston Herald was spanked by the White House for running a front-page op-ed by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
"The White House denied any pressure in all those cases, too.
"Before his campaign-finance-grubbing swing ended, Obama met the pop singer Lady Gaga. She lobbied him to combat bullying across America. It was a little like Red Riding Hood lobbying the Big Bad Wolf to promote vegetarianism."

"It got very personal when two union supporters ganged up on the conservative, one of them calling him “uneducated” and another asking him if he has any children “that he claims”:

According to, the woman in red was later asked what she meant by her comments about the man’s children. “She said the black conservative was such a ‘free spirit’ that she assumed he would possibly not own up to the responsibility of being a father,” the site says.
Just so you know, the man admitted on camera he was gay.
SEIU’s involvement in the protest is supported by a schedule on the union’s website that names Denver, CO as a rally site."

Obama lectures Europe about their, wait!...WHAT?

Spiegel Online : Obama's Euro-Crisis Lecture Is 'Pitiful and Sad'  "US President Obama has given the Europeans a harsh lecture on the dangers of their ongoing debt crisis. Offended by the unsolicited advice, Europeans have suggested the US get its own house in order first. Obama's remarks were "arrogant" and "absurd," German commentators say on Wednesday."
UK Mail:   Obama lectures Europe: Do as I say, not as I do   "On Monday, President Obama acted like a sheltered university economics professor and smugly lectured the leaders of Europe that they were not taking quick enough action to bail out Greece."

Jihad Deniers

Noisy Room  "The high priests who run the Church of Man Made Global Warming call anyone who doesn’t become disciples of the environmental whacko movement, “Deniers;” an attempt to discredit folks who don’t agree with a junk science whose main purpose has nothing to do with saving Mother Earth and everything to do with wealth redistribution. Scientists who don’t sign on to this massive hoax are, after all, “denied” federal grant money or “denied” publication in professional circles; hence the term “deniers” seems quite appropriate.
"Speaking of deniers…"

Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue's Joe Biden Moment

First it was a joke. Then it was hyperbole. Now it's sarcasm
""The next time they tell you how stupid Sarah Palin is or Michele Bachmann, just think back to this day and North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue," said Limbaugh, the conservative talk show host." (Emphasis in the original)

N.C. Gov. Beverly Perdue: Let's 'Suspend' Elections to Fix America
"I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that," Perdue said. "You want people who don't worry about the next election."
What was Bev Perdue thinking?

Bernie Goldberg: Trust in Media Low Due to Love Affair With Obama

Newsbusters  "With regard to the Christmas Day front page Post article, Goldberg neglected something even more indicative of media bias that day.
"As NewsBusters reported at the time, not only was that puff piece on the front page of the Post, the revelation about the Obama transition team's report on contacts with former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich was placed on page A3.

"...Barack Obama is the new golden child in the celebrity weekly world.
"Just hours after the elections, two of the most successful brands — People and Us Weekly — stocked newsstands with issues that featured the president-elect on the cover, while the competition went with more ordinary celebrity fare. According to early sales figures, People and Us made the right call."

Iranian Pastor Faces Execution for Refusing to Recant Christian Faith

Legal Insurrection Quoting Fox News:
An Iranian pastor who has refused to renounce his Christian faith faces execution as early as Wednesday after his sentence was upheld by an Iranian court.
"Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who maintains he has never been a Muslim as an adult, has Islamic ancestry and therefore must recant his faith in Jesus Christ, the 11th branch of Iran’s Gilan Provincial Court ruled. Iran’s Supreme Court had ordered the trial court to determine whether Nadarkhani had been a Muslim prior to converting to Christianity.

And from the comments to this post:
So sad for this Pastor and his family. Why aren’t those Muslims who tell us Islam is a tolerant religion, and say they are moderates, standing up and condemning this? Have I missed the outcry of support for this Pastor from the US Muslim community?
Related: Iran: Government Takes Child  "Security officers reportedly took the child as a way to pressure the Christian family and other Christian converts. Mohabat News reports that the security agents threatened the couple, saying, “If you want your child back, you must file a complaint against your fellow Christians in prison.” "

California Education Becomes Indoctrination

Google Image
The Trumpet  "The bill requires all public schools to incorporate into their social studies program the achievements and contributions of homosexuals, lesbians and transvestites to society. Proposed by Democrat Sen. Mark Leno, SB 48 was victorious with a 23-14 vote in the State of California senate and a 49-25 vote in the Assembly.
"“Current California law already mandates that schools teach about Mexican Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, American Indians, entrepreneurs, labor and women. This bill now adds gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people, as well as those with disabilities, to the list of groups that must be included in history lessons” "  The 49-25 margin and the 23-14 margin shows you how entrenched the left is in California and that this is indeed the voice of the California people who voted them into office. 

The Pro-48 site Equality California
More here:   “The FAIR Education Act enables all California students to learn an honest account of history, which includes the contributions of women, people of color, LGBT people, people with disabilities, and other historically underrepresented groups,” said Gay-Straight Alliance Network Executive Director Carolyn Laub. “This coalition is determined to protect the FAIR Education Act and stop the extremist effort to censor LGBT people and people with disabilities from history.”
The entire state has become San Francisco. Lets hope the movement doesn't cross borders.

Repeal Prop. 48

Neutrality Not Good Enough for Gay Activists–Only Promotion Will Do  "Today, activist groups, including the National Center for Lesbian Rights, announced they filed a lawsuit against the Anoka-Hennepin School District in Minnesota. Among other things, they are demanding that the school repeal a curriculum policy directing educators to remain neutral on controversial sexual topics in the classroom."

What happens when SB 48 becomes law.  ...."4. Teachers will be made to positively portray homosexuality, same-sex "marriages," bisexuality, and transsexuality, because to be silent can bring the charge of "reflecting adversely" or "promoting a discriminatory bias." "

Here is where Prop 48 advocates can go to discuss their ideas, if you care to know.

 I visited the school of my childhood this summer and a rush of pleasant memories flooded my mind.  But then the realization came that this was no longer that school; it had become a re-education and indoctrination center advocating ideas that nearly all of the population once saw as immoral and reprehensible.  All things we had known to be wrong had become acceptable -even mandatory-and what had been good was now evil.
What a terrible loss our society has suffered.  TD

Hey, Truthers! Al Qaeda To Ahmadinejad: Stop Saying We Didn’t Do 9/11, You’re Just ‘Jealous’

Yeshiva World News  "In the latest issue of its English-language magazine, Inspire, Al Qaeda lit into Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s repeated statements that 9/11 was the work of the American government.
"“Al Qaeda … succeeded in what Iran couldn’t,” wrote an author named Abu Suhail, the Jerusalem Post reported. “Therefore it was necessary for the Iranians to discredit 9/11 and what better way to do so? Conspiracy theories.”"

Would somebody please forward this on to Rosie O'Donnell and her fellow"truthers"  for me?

Six Ways to Fix These Painfully Embarrassing GOP Primary Debates

Pajamas Media   "This really needs to be the last electoral cycle where MSM leftists receive such a perfect perch to land their cheap shots."....
"In addition to “gotcha” questions posed by media personalities evidently seeking to embarrass the speakers, of whom far too many have been on stage at the same time, and to invite them to trip over their shoelaces while making the media personalities look cool, there are other, related problems."....
"The current candidate “debates” are neither of manageable scope nor do they offer the viable candidates adequate opportunities to prepare and then to make their positions on specific topics both clearly understood and difficult to distort. If they are to become meaningful in the candidate selection process,
substantial changes are needed." (Excerpt below)

Today, the questions fall into two main categories.
  The first is gotcha queries that seek to trip up the victim with some past inconsistencies or try to force an admission that he really has no chance, as happened back in August when Fox’s Chris Wallace asked Newt Gingrich about his troubled campaign.
  The second is just plain-stupid questions. In New Hampshire, CNN’s John King asked former Sen. Rick Santorum whether he preferred Jay Leno to Conan O’Brien (answer: neither) and grilled Herman Cain about how he likes his pizza (deep dish). The idea was to show the candidates’ human side, but the result was to display the frivolousness of the moderator.
If Obama loses, no one can blame the liberal media.  "One place that Democratic contenders go for positive publicity is the network morning shows. Their audiences are diminished, but they remain a powerful national platform, especially for female voters. Rich Noyes and Geoff Dickens of the Media Research Center have demonstrated how ABC, CBS, and NBC set a pretty pleasant table for the Democratic candidates (and potential candidates like Al Gore) from January 1 through July 31, 2007." Brent Bozell

What the Betrayal of Czechoslovakia in 1938 Can Teach Us About The World and Israel Today (Unless you are a "progressive" and cannot be made to learn from history).

Barry Rubin  "...Analogies with Nazism and the 1930s are overused today, made even more tasteless and cliché-ridden by the fact that many of those using them know very little about the situations then and now."

Bad cause, good cover story:
The oppressor
Today, many people cannot believe that a humanitarian issue for which a real case can be made might also block understanding of a wider danger and the creation of a worse humanitarian issue.The Palestinians are suffering, they say. The Palestinians want a state. These are problems worthy of a solution, but what kind of a solution? Like saying the proletariat has poor living conditions or bigotry against Muslims is a bad thing, these are true enough statements — but not ones that should overwhelm common sense and a legitimate self-interest.Even the detail of blaming Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel’s current government has a parallel in the 1938 case: the problem is portrayed as the intransigence of Benes (pictured here), rather than that of Czechoslovakia as a whole. (Incidentally, after 1945 when he returned to power, Benes expelled by law virtually all of the country’s Hungarian and German minorities.)
Resentment for the “troublemaker,” who is just trying to survive:
The oppressed victim
Misunderstanding the enemy’s ideology, means, and goals"
Chamberlain believed that Hitler just wanted dominance over Czechoslovakia, and that there would be no more claims. In the same manner, much of the media, university, government complex (MUG) of today thinks that an independent Palestinian state would be the end of history — after which there would be no more aggression, claims, demands, or crises.
Much more at the link...

Resuming: But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn some important lessons:
– Don’t buy humanitarian explanations for aggressive and radical demands.
– Identify your enemies correctly, and know their ideology, goals, and tricks.
– Don’t be angry at the intended victim, and accept lies about it by your own common adversaries.
– Don’t engage in a process of progressive surrender, in which a chain of unilateral concessions are substituted for standing on principle and demanding one’s own interests be respected.
– Think about whether a proposed solution is really lasting, or is just going to make things worse.
– If you fear to confront an aggressive dictatorship or ideology, you will end up confronting it on worse terms.
"It is forgotten how much antagonism there was at the time against Czechoslovakia"
While we're in this groove, how about this comparison of Obama to the Vichy French?
And here: Brzezinski (from the Carter administration, incidentally) fantasizes about US shooting down Israeli planes  
Also: Obama Defense Dept: We’re Not Going To Attack Iran, And If Israel Tries We Might Shoot Down Their Jets

All this just to show you how cowardice in the face of ruthlessness is reflected in history and how those who yield to it will be regarded. Of course that is after it is too late and millions of innocents have been long dead. TD

Alan Caruba:The World is Having a Nervous Breakdown

Warning Signs  ...."Few arrive at a nervous breakdown overnight. It takes time and a variety of bad decisions or bad luck or both. After blaming George W. Bush and Republicans for his problems, Obama has taken to blaming bad luck. Does he even know that people have concluded the economy is now officially and completely his fault? "
  • Rule Number One: Almost everything the government touches, it ruins in some fashion. At the very least, it increases its cost of operation.
  • Rule Number Two: The government’s primary function is the defense of the nation against attack. As Ronald Reagan said, “Nobody ever started a war with us because we were too strong.”
  • Rule Number Three: Government exists due to its ability to tax and spend other people’s money. Spending always needs to be restrained.
  • Rule Number Four. Government will always produce more laws and regulations than are needed. It should be restrained. (See the U.S. Constitution). 
"When he proposed Obamacare, a million Americans showed up in Washington, D.C. to tell them not to do it. He should have listened to them. Now we call them the Tea Party."

The Intercontinental Railroad

How ironic that Obama points with pride at the American Railroads when we all know how liberals hate the companies that built them. Moreover, we all know they could not have been built today because of the Obama base: the EPA, environmentalists, Fish and Wildlife and anyone who plans to vote for Elizabeth Warren.
Name one single ingredient of a railroad that the left would not have tried to shut down: land acquisition? Raw materials? Coal? Shaping of the roadbeds? Cutting forests and building bridges?  Heaven forbid that a protected species dwells in the path of a future roadbed,
Motto of the left: NO YOU CAN'T!   TD

How photojournalists manipulate the news

Media – Photo journalism behind the scenes  "Reporters in war zones risk their lives to tell us what is going on and without their reports we would be much less informed. We should, and we are, grateful for what they do. Thanks to their work we are aware. But as the old adage goes: there is more to a picture than meets the eye. What we see is not what is, but what we are shown. And that always originates from a perspective. Hardly truly objective, and not necessarily innocent." Via Caroline Glick

See the revealing perspective of this video: 

America the adequate
Obama's Albatross "Warren is a living reminder of the economic and social mess that Democrats have created. For Republicans, she is an asset; for Democrats, she is an albatross about their collective neck. Undoubtedly, many of them feel that she should have heeded the advice of former Republican president Abraham Lincoln who observed that it is better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt."

 Charles Krauthammer: Return of the Real Obama ; President Obama shifts from a phony centrism back to his social-democratic core.  "The authentic Obama is a leveler, a committed social democrat, a staunch believer in the redistributionist state, a tribune, above all, of “fairness” — understood as government-imposed and government-enforced equality.
"That’s why “soak the rich” is not just a campaign slogan to rally the base. It’s a mission, a vocation. It’s why for all its gratuitous cynicism and demagoguery, Obama’s populist Rose Garden lecture on Monday was delivered with such obvious — and unusual — conviction."

Is Herman Cain the left's worst nightmare?

Thomas Lifson  "Politico, which pretends to be a nonpartisan website while harboring three members of the infamous JourNoList conspiracy to shape news to favor Obama, has revealed how deeply it and the Democrats fear Herman Cain. American Glob noticed that in pictorial display of the GOP presidential field, Politico somehow managed to include Huntsman and Santorum, but omit Herman Cain's beautiful black face. Here is their screen capture:"
"Unlike Barack Obama, Herman Cain comes from African-American roots, with slave ancestors, and blue collar parents. While Obama's Luo ancestors in Africa were [slave] holders, Cain's ancestors were slaves in America. Cain didn't attend any elite prep schools or Ivy League universities, he was the first member of his family to attend college and rose on merit in the corporate world, before the era of affirmative action. He is, to use Al Sharpton's phrase, "authentic."
"No wonder the left and its press lickspittles are so worried."   (Emphasis added)

'Hermaneutics' Cain-Style  "Oh, but wait! Obama had better not remove the race card too fast. Herman identifies with racists in a way, because as a black man he knows the racism issue isn't about skin color. On the left, racism is defined as: "People who oppose Obama," and in the past Mr. Cain has in fact admitted, "I guess I'm a racist."
"The confusion surrounding having two black candidates for president would make for interesting theatre. Take for instance Black Panther poll watchers standing guard for racial equality. How would they know whom to wave their clubs at on Election Day? Do the Panthers intimidate whites voting for Obama or blacks voting for Cain? How would they figure out who is voting for whom? What a quandary."....
"Herman Cain may not be the perfect candidate but, then again, who is? Moreover, Mr. Cain getting the Republican nomination, unfortunately, is doubtful." Jeannie DeAngelis

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

Droppin' them "G"s

Let's talk about Race, shall we?

Disband the Congressional Black Caucus
Roger L Simon  "We’re in the era of Herman Cain, people, not Maxine Waters, Jesse Jackson, the stultifying Travis Smiley, or that man who has put a generation of Harvard and Princeton students into perpetual narcoleptic sleep — Dr. Cornel West.
"And while we’re at it, all other caucuses based on race, religion, creed, or national origin should be put out to pasture along with it. Such groupings are so reactionary and self-destructive they make your eyes roll back in your head,....
They divide us and help no one. They have no justification any more, if they ever did.
"Racism is dead. Or as dead as it’s ever going to be.
"Sure there are a few nitwits who are bigots ...but they are pariahs..... Racism as we knew it is over, unless for reasons of nostalgia or personal or political gain, you want to keep it alive. Time to shut up already about race." Emphasis added.

The Real Story Why Cain Won the FL Straw Poll  "They wanted their vote to prove that the GOP and the Tea Party are not racist (take that Morgan Freeman and Black Caucus) but instead are willing to embrace a man of color whose personal story and political philosophy they wholeheartedly support."

Conservative Black Chick: Obama to Blacks: Take Off Your Bedroom Slippers; Stop Complaining  "What liberals mean to say is the vast left wing media calls attention to Republicans when they make racist remarks but rarely if ever puts a spot light on a liberal for doing the same.
"Let’s see how the liberal news media attempts to white-wash these condescending, Obama’s racially charged remarks." Crystal Wright

Black Quill and Ink has this: Black Liberation Theology and the Economy  "This explains why Obama subscribes to “socialist” tenets because under socialism it is the collective that share, equally, in the wealth and benefits of the state This is a markedly different philosophy from main stream Christian belief that salvation is a process by which God saves individuals through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. Each person must come to Christ individually, not collectively."

The Black Sphere : If Only Obama Were White   "In short, black Liberals are horrible workers. They under-perform then use the race card, daring employers to fire them. A secret in the black community is black employers don’t even want to hire black Liberals. Black Liberals are like this because they have been taught to be like this by their Liberal black leaders, who encourage such behavior."

Morgan Freeman's Tea Party Accusation "Utterly Outrageous" and "Dangerous" .. is “dangerous” for the President and his supporters to seek to exacerbate racial tensions as a means to “whip up the base” and regain political momentum for the Obama agenda."

New Video Betrays NAACP's Bizarre Logic     "MRC visited the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Dinner in Washington to ask attendees if the tea party is racist. The attendees are also asked about Allen West and Herman Cain and what they think of black members of the tea party. One man says they can go to hell, another lady calls them 'oreos.' "

‘Every Single One’ Fallout: Justice Dept. in Turmoil From PJMedia Series

Pajamas Media  113 and Oh.
Following the Justice Department’s long-delayed compliance with a Freedom of Information Act request, PJMedia recently published content from the resumes of each career attorney hired to the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division under Attorney General Eric Holder. The articles were written by two former Civil Rights Division attorneys — J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky — and PJMedia Editor Richard Pollock.
The Justice Department is forbidden by federal law from hiring employees based on political affiliation. Yet the resumes revealed the following ideological breakdown among the new hires:
Leftist lawyers: 113
Moderate, non-ideological, or conservative lawyers: 0.
Eric Holder by Jason Seiler
That represents the basest headline for the series, the matter-of-fact evidence that should lead any reasonable observer to believe the DOJ has employed an illegal political litmus test during the interview process. But the “Every Single One” series has provided additional benefits: the results present the inherent flaw in leftism’s perversion of the term “civil rights,” while providing a real world example of the flawed belief actualized. Additionally, the “Every Single One” series presents ramifications that reach far beyond the individuals most directly affected by DOJ activity.
We hope not to understate it: this perversion of “civil rights“ is the beating heart of leftism itself.

American Spectator : Deep Corruption at the Obama Justice Department   "As I noted a few weeks ago when writing about this scandal, "These people were members of groups like 'Queer Resistance Front,' 'Intersex Society of North America,' and of course People for the American Way. Their published essays focused on issues such as 'Genital Normalizing Surgery on Intersexed Infants' and on arguing that providing material support for terrorism isn't a war crime."

Jennifer Rubin warned us way back in 2009  "In the weeks before Eric Holder was confirmed as Attorney General, Jennifer Rubin kept up a steady drumbeat of blog posts warning us all what a dishonest, radically leftist problem he would turn out to be. Rubin was absolutely right. Somehow, though, Holder's dastardliness has outstripped even the stern warnings Rubin issued."

Obama's FY 2011 Debt Bigger Than Nixon's Entire Government; How to Explain it to a Lib

CNS News  "The $1.16517 trillion in new debt the Obama administration has accumulated so far in this fiscal year is about $22.81 billion more than the $1.14236 trillion in inflation-adjusted dollars than the entire federal government spent in 1970." More coming if you just PASS THIS BILL!   Via Neal Boortz who commented:

The 2012 Republican nominee must impress upon Americans the danger of this statistic and then they must have a plan on how to turn it around. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans don’t have any skin in the game, so convincing them of how dangerous this truly is will be tough. It will take a great speaker and a great leader. It will take an even better leader to actually make it happen once in office. Boortz added this:

Here’s more ammo for you when discussing taxes with your lib and prog friends or co-workers.
"Wealth envy is a political scheme used to buy votes. It should not be dictating economic policy."
Let me repeat that with red highlights: Wealth envy is a political scheme used to buy votes. It should not be dictating economic policy.

Attack Waaaatch!

Watching Attack Watch . . . Do Nothing for the Past Nine Days.  "The creators and managers of the Obama campaign web site “ATTACK WATCH” have not Tweeted since September 14, and the last “Attack File” was posted September 12. Perhaps they realized that they couldn’t top themselves after making Mark Steyn (right) look sinister and demonic."....
"By ceasing to do any work, the “Attack Watch” team has now joined the ranks of 14 million other Americans under Obama’s economic policies"

 Steyn on White House’s ‘Attack Watch’: ‘It’s real pansy-boy stuff’  "The Obama campaign’s creation of an “Attack Watch” website has become something of joke since its launch this week, but and National Review columnist Mark Steyn says it reveals something crucial about the Obama campaign’s character.....
"“I suppose if in many parts of the world,” Steyn explained, ”but in particular if, like me, you’re a foreigner, you’re an immigrant to this great land, when the head of state decides to single you out for attraction, for mention on his enemies list, you ought to be worried about it. But I think this is a joke."

Iran: Negotiating with Hostage Takers and Murderers

Warning Signs  "When Iranians took to the streets to protest the election of Ahmadinejad, they were gunned down in the streets of Tehran while others were imprisoned. President Obama’s response at the time was that the U.S. should not “meddle” in Iranian affairs, though he would earlier call for the overthrow of Egypt’s Mubarack and later seek to engage NATO in the overthrow of Libya’s dictator."  Alan Caruba
Tell it like it is, Alan.

Ten Years of Lessons Unlearned   "We have prevented further attacks on the homeland, but the longer-term goal of definitively repudiating the Islamist drive for global preeminence has been compromised by our failure to understand the Islamic bona fides of much of the Islamist ideology, and its resonance among millions of Muslims. This failure may in the long run lead to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt joining Iran as an Islamic republic hostile to our interests." Bruce Thornton

Freed hikers recount 2 years of 'lies and false hope'  ""Sarah, Josh and I have experienced a taste of the Iranian regime's brutality. We have been held in almost total isolation from the world and everything we love, stripped of our rights and freedom," Bauer said.
"He urged Iran to release all political prisoners immediately, telling reporters, "There are people in Iran who have been imprisoned for years for simply attending a protest, for writing a pro-democracy blog or for worshiping an unpopular faith." "

Making speeches and spreading blame are tools of choice in an adolescent White House

World Magazine "The Obama speech-making has turned off the electorate partly because of another child-like habit. The speeches are filled with excuses, as the president constantly blames others for the problems he hasn't been able to solve. For his first couple of years in office, it was standard Obama fare to make George Bush his whipping boy. More recently, it's all the rich people—the people who fly jet airplanes and who waste their money on tax-deductible charitable gifts.

"But something important in the fiber of a nation is lost when grown-ups—too often led by their president—act like little kids."

 Barack Blames Blacks, Bush, Banks, Budget, You "Barack Obama continued his stirring “It’s All Your Fault” campaign tour this week scolding crowds in New York, Ohio, Washington, DC and people on the West Bank and in Israel for not doing their jobs.
"It seems that citizens around the world are screwing up what otherwise would have been a fun-filled four years of taxpayers’ subsidized vacations for Barry and Michelle. And Obama is hoping that will change."

Obama’s Racial Gerrymandering  "We just can’t have this. We can’t have whites who criticize the President’s job performance called racist for doing so and we can’t have blacks who criticize his performance called traitors to Dr. King’s legacy. Let’s all say no to racial gerrymandering."

Obama Drops The Class Warfare Rhetoric During Fundraisers With Rich Donors…  "Obama will appear at no fewer than seven fundraising events over the next two days. The trip puts him in something of a delicate spot. He is raising millions from some of the same economic elites he says are flourishing under an unfair tax code."

Honkies for Herman (They said it, not me)

Honkies for Herman   ..."Since racism, race bating, and classism are staples of leftist politics, we have decided to proudly be Honkies For Herman as a way of taking the issue away from the left. The left are the racists, not conservatives. We are also Honkies For Herman because we don’t believe in a white America, black America, hispanic America, etc. We believe in Americans period, and not some leftist ideology of a segmented America. The content of one’s character and ability is paramount.  (Emphasis added)
"We will not be producing any “Honkies For Herman” t-shirts, bumper stickers, or buttons. This site is meant to spread news about Mr. Cain and to tweet about Mr. Cain. And the second purpose is to take the “conservatives are racist” meme away from the left. And third, the left can’t take a joke when the joke is on them, which might be the best reason of all.
"Go Herman!!!"

However these guys will be happy to make the aforementioned bumper stickers:

And then there is this little doozy:
