Every American voter who is considering voting for Barack Obama should read this article, published in the Evening Standard in the UK, about Barack Obama and his promises.
Obama visited Kenya with great fanfare after being elected a U.S. Senator, and became an instant folk hero. The village that was home to his father even renamed their school after the Senator. He made promises to help support the school, which was in serious need of basic upgrades, like running water.
What happened to his promise to "spread the wealth" in his ancestral village? As of today, they're still waiting for that "support" he promised them.
And if you vote for him, you'll be left wondering what happened to the promises he made to you. Here's a hint: Remember that tax plan that was going to cut taxes for anyone making less than $250,000 a year? Then it was $200,000. Then Joe Biden said $150,000. Today Bill Richardson said it was $120,000. And before they're done, you'll find that promise simply evaporated.
Obama and Alinsky - Yet another radical connection
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past year, you've surely heard of Barack Obama's radical connections with the likes of race-baiting, America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright and unrepentant terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and probably Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan.
Another radical connection you may not have heard of is Saul Alinsky, called the "father of
This Harvard-educated lawyer, who fits the profile of an Obama supporter, explains why he's voting for John McCain. His reasoning makes good sense to us, and we think it will make good sense to you as well.
As he explains, electing a President is essentially a hiring decision. If you were hiring a lawyer to represent you in a death penalty case where your life was on the line, which candidate would you hire?
Our founding fathers were especially careful to create a government that had a system of checks and balances, so that no one branch of government had any more power than another, and each would keep an eye on attempted usurpation of power by the others.
Should Barack Obama be elected President next week, we will have both the executive and legislative branches of our government controlled by liberal Democrats. And eventually the judicial branch as well, because the next president will likely appoint more than one new Supreme Court Justice. That leaves NO branch of government to keep the others in balance. It would leave our entire government controlled by liberal Democrats.
That should cause a reason for concern, and we urge voters who are still undecided between the two candidates at this point to consider voting for the systems of checks and balances that has worked well for our country for more than 200 years.
"I acknowledge, in the ordinary course of government, that the exposition of the laws and Constitution devolves upon the judicial.
"But I beg to know upon what principle it can be contended that any one department draws from the Constitution greater powers than another in marking out the limits of the powers of the several departments."
-- James Madison (speech in the Congress of the United States, 17 June 1789)
What is Sarah Palin's Experience?
From the moment she was announced as John McCain's running mate, the question has been, "What is Sarah Palin's Experience?"
The Heroes at Home Wish Registry(sm), sponsored by Sears, has extended its deadline to Friday, October 31. All active military personnel are encouraged to apply.
Through this program Sears, in cooperation with the Department of Defense, enables Americans to fulfill wishes for up to 20,000 deserving military families and personnel this holiday season. This continues Sears' long-standing tradition of supporting the military, whose sacrifices deserve more recognition.
The first 20,000 military personnel to apply and be verified will
Barack Obama attacked abortion survivor Gianna Jessen when she spoke out against his opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.
"I've dealt with worse; I survived an abortion," Jessen says in a powerful new ad for BornAliveTruth.org.
JESSEN: "Seen this ad? In it, Senator Obama personally attacks me. I've dealt with worse -- I survived an abortion. State Senator Barack Obama voted 4 times against laws to protect babies who survive abortions. Meanwhile, U.S. Senators voted 98-0 for Born Alive Infant Protections. Senator Obama says deciding when babies get human rights is above his pay grade. Tell him abortion survivors deserve legal protections too."
Jessen became the first abortion survivor to appear in an issue advocacy advertisement earlier this year.
After her first ad was released, the Obama campaign issued a response ad that said BornAliveTruth was misleading voters. This is the attack Jessen refers to in the spot.
"Senator Obama had the audacity to go after Gianna Jessen, born alive after a failed abortion, and call her and the ad she appeared in 'a despicable lie,'" said Jill Stanek, executive director of BornAliveTruth.org. "We want to make sure voters are aware of Barack Obama's extreme stance on abortion, and that he voted four times, while an Illinois State Senator, to deny medical care to infants born alive after abortions."
What can we say? Is this the type of man you want to lead this great nation? One who calls an abortion survivor a liar for publicizing his record of voting against medical care for infants like her, who survive abortion attempts?
We pray that enough American voters see through the smoke and mirrors being put forth by the Obama campaign, to see that this man with no leadership experience has radical ideas about changing America in ways that would destroy the way of life we know and love.
We know we're preaching to the choir, because if you don't agree with us, you stopped reading this blog long ago. So we ask you to please keep trying to reach your friends who have become Obama zombies. There's still hope!
Anyone who votes for Obama is Un-American and has fallen into his one word trap - change. Obama says he will redistribute the wealth. That is
Barack Obama recently told "Joe the Plumber" the importance of "spreading the wealth around." And if you watch his rhetoric, you will see that "spreading the wealth" and "economic justice" are cornerstones of his political philosophy. A recording of a 2001 interview has him lamenting that the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's failed to bring about a redistribution of wealth in this country.
And remember Michelle Obama's speech where she said that some would have to give up a piece of pie so that others could have more?
We think you'll find the Obamas' tax returns to be significant in showing how
Forty-one years ago today, Republican Presidential hopeful John McCain endured a day that has shaped every day of his life since. For every American voter about to select a President to lead our country through these troubled times, we suggest that character matters more than any other trait.
This piece, written by fellow POWs who shared the darkest period of his life, and thus know him best, is a testament to the character of John McCain.
"Country First" is not just a campaign slogan for John McCain -- it is the way he has lived his life.
As we approach the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday period, you will no doubt receive increasing solicitations from all sorts of charities asking for your help, especially in the current economic climate.
According to the American Institute of Philanthropy, U.S. military members, postal workers, and other federal employees are among the most generous givers in the U.S. That makes us even more proud of you. Not only do you give so much in your service to our nation, for which you receive paltry pay, you also give up some of that pay to help others not as fortunate.
We want to remind you, however, that all charities are not created equal.
So we're reminding you, before you make ANY charitable donations,
Much has been reported recently about the long list of Barack Obama's questionable relationships, and how they affect his qualifications to be President of the United States. They also reflect his judgment and tell us a lot about who he is.
It is true that like attracts like. We tend to gravitate towards other people who share our beliefs and values. We all know that from our own lives. That's especially troubling in the case of Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama.
Who is Khalid Al-Mansour, and what is his connection with Barack Obama? You should know.
Barack Obama's extended family paints a colorful picture, and it's one he'd probably prefer you not see. Attempting to research his family, including all his father's wives and mistresses, and all his half-siblings, is enough to confuse any voter. Obama shares a father with seven half-siblings, and a mother with one. That's quite an extended family.
Writer Ray Kraft provides a thought-provoking historical perspective on the War Against Islamic Extremists.
As you read this article, think about how America (and you) would react to being taken over by Islamic extremists, possibly as early as 2009 or 2010, especially if Iran is allowed to develop its nuclear capabilities. And don't be foolish enough to dismiss that idea as outside the realm of possibility, because it isn't.
It is time for the good people of America to speak up and for the Silent Majority to remain silent no more.
Turning points in history are often dicey things. Now, we find ourselves at another one of those key moments in history.
There is a very dangerous minority in Islam that either has, or wants, and may soon have, the ability to deliver small nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons, almost anywhere in the world.
The Jihadis, the militant Muslims, are basically Nazis in Kaffiyahs -- they believe that
On July 31, 2008, the Wall Street Journal had an article titled, "Where's the Outrage?"
Really! I can tell you where the outrage is.
The outrage is here, in this middle-aged, well-educated,upper-middle class woman. The outrage is here, but I have norepresentation, no voice. The outrage is here, but no one is listening, for who am I?
I'm not a billionaire like George Soros who can fund
The Audacity of Obama -- to portray himself as a messiah who can heal the racial divide in America.
In an article at Townhall.com, Phyllis Schlafly mentions the hope many Americans felt when Barack Obama won the nomination of the Democratic Party, that perhaps his historic selection would signal at least the beginning of the end of racism in America.
She goes on to explain why Barack Obama cannot be the man who signals the demise of racism in America. To put it bluntly, it is because
Last week, Congress passed an unprecedented financial bailout bill. We've heard lots of discussion about the current financial crisis in the US over the airwaves in the past few weeks, and it has become a major issue in the Presidential election, now less than a month away.
Nominations Due for Military Spouse of the Year Award
Do you know an outstanding military spouse who deserves to be recognized for her support of our military?
The deadline is fast approaching to submit nominations for the 2009 Military Spouse of the Year award from Military Spouse magazine. The award is sponsored by USAA.
As the Oct. 8 deadline approaches, 252 Army spouses had been nominated at last count, along with 74 Navy and 70 Air Force spouses. The Coast Guard, with 22 nominations, was edging out the Marine Corps by one, with 21 Marine Corps spouses nominated.
Guys! C'mon! You can't let the Army kick your tail like that. Get those nominations in!
For several months now, we've lamented the fact that we wish we had the opportunity to vote for Ronald Reagan again. It seems that with all the problems this country is facing, we need as much as ever his brand of strong leadership, statesmanship, common sense, and Peace Through Strength.
Well, along comes Michael Reagan, Ronnie's eldest son, and tells us he recognizes his father in one of the candidates this fall. And it's not John McCain . . .
Brigadier General Jimmy L. Cash, USAF (Retired), was at one time the man with his finger on the nuclear trigger of this country, as head of our missile defense and response complex.
According to Major General John R. (Jack) Farrington, USAF (Retired), General Cash "was the only person who could initiate a nuclear attack after advising the sitting President of a missile launch by our enemies and our need to respond. No political or civilian type in the US had more knowledge about day to day military actions around the world."
Here, General Cash explains the critical importance of completing our mission in Iraq.
It should be noted that he is neither Democrat nor Republican. I hope that you will read it with an open mind, and seriously consider what he says.
The future of this great country depends on enough voters understanding what General Cash is saying, before the election in November!
