ACORN and Their Allies on the Left Lambaste Giles and O’Keefe’s Politics and Faith

by Doug Giles at Townhall.com

Let me see if I have this right: ACORN, in five locations coast-to-coast are on tape counseling tax fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, and the coup de grace, how to set up a whorehouse for 12 to 15-year-old El Salvadoran sex slaves, and now ACORN and the Left are POed about it being exposed without ACORN’s consent?!

What else ticks the Left off about ACORN being uncovered assisting in some of the worst kind of scandalous scat known to mankind?

Well, if you Google around you’ll find the “progressives” are peeved not because ACORN had the spotlight bare down on their dirty deeds done on our dime but because of the fact that Hannah is part of the Young America’s Foundation and James, at one time, was a member of the Leadership Institute. That’s crazy! Run for your life, people! Hannah and James have been influenced by conservative principles and traditional values! Run away!

Yes, according to some the shame should fall on Hannah and James for hanging out with college students who love America and our founding documents. We can’t have that, now can we?

Also, I have to chuckle every time I hear Hannah referred to as a “political activist.” That’s some funny stuff. I have lived with Hannah ever since she came out of her mama’s belly, and I can tell you the extent of her “activism.” Are you ready? Brace yourself. You might want to sit down. Here it comes. She voted this past election for McCain, she went to two YAF.org conferences as a teenager in ‘07 and ‘08, and she interned for the National Journalism Center this past summer writing columns on economics. Oh, and I almost forgot: She went to a tea party last April 15th. I guess that “radical activist” resume puts her right up there with Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, Van Jones and Che Guevara.

Interesting take on current direction of the US

This was sent to me in an email, complete with the photos. It was supposedly written by a preacher’s wife, but I have no idea who she is. Whoever wrote it, did a wonderful job of telling the story of the Obama candidacy, presidency, and the aftermath of the American Experiment in Socialism.

Enjoy.

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as “The One.”

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you.” My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you with hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what “The One” would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed. And “The One” said ” We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!” And the people said, “Hallelujah! Change is good!”

Then He said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats.” And the people said “Sock it to them!” “And redistribute their wealth.” And the people said, “Show us the money!” And the he said, “redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.”

And Joe the plumber asked, ” Are you kidding me? You’re going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??” And “The One” ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized. One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?” And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?” And “The One” said, “Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!” And the people said, “Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”

Then “The One” said “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.” And one, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.” So “The One” said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!” And the people said, “Hallelujah! Show us the money!” Then “The One” said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!” And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed. And He said. “I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics.” And the people said, “Give me some of that!” Then he said, “I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.” And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”

Then “The One” said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!” And the people said, “Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.” So “The One” said, Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!”

Then He said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing…” And the people said, “Hallelujah!” and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The bank banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

Then “The One” said, “I am the “the One”- The Messiah – and I’m here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!” But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. “Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more… And “The One” said, “Wait a minute. That is unfair!!” And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”

And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we done?” But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change “The One” had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed then and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, “give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!” But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this a fairy tale, but it’s not. It’s happening RIGHT NOW!

I wish I could take credit for this, but it’s the work an unknown author.

Gallup poll: Pro-life majority in America

Updated–5/16/09

Fox News reported yesterday that a majority of Americans now identify themselves as pro-life on the abortion issue.

Fifty-one percent of Americans consider themselves “pro-life” and just 42 percent say they are “pro-choice,” the first time a majority of the country has stated a personal objection to abortion since Gallup polls began tracking the data 15 years ago.

 …More

This is the first time since Gallup began tracking this issue that pro-lifers have overtaken pro-choicers!  In fact, just last year the numbers were 50% pro-choice, 44% pro-life.

If you’re thinking this is simply a statistical anomaly, think again.  Gallup’s own article indicates it considered this possibility when it explains these results were corroborated by two other polls yielding almost identical numbers–one was another Gallup poll, but confirmation also came from a Pew Research Center which showed an 8-point drop in those who believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases.

Republicans and right-leaning Independents are responsible for the dramatic position shift as Democrats’  and left-leaning Independents’ views remained virtually stagnant from last year.  The following graph shows a 10% shift from pro-choice to pro-life among the former group in the study.

The poll also found a corresponding shift on the extent to which Americans believe abortion should be legal.  Fifty-three percent of Americans now believe abortion should be legal under certain conditions, down slightly from last year.  But it’s now a dead-heat between those who believe there should be no legal restrictions on abortion and those who believe the procedure should never be performed under any circumstances.   With 22% holding the former position and 23% the latter.  Until now, the left extreme heavily outnumbered the right on the legality question.

Gallup probed further with those who believe abortion should be legal in some cases, but not all.  When asked whether they thought abortion should be legal in most cases or in only a few cases, the latter view won handily.  The chart below shows those 37% of respondents favor legalization only in rare cases while those who prefer few legal restrictions make up only 15% of Americans.

Views on Legalized Abortion

Views on Legalized Abortion

Another interesting take on the graphic above is seen by combining the left extreme with those who believe abortion should be restricted, but only in few cases vs. the right extreme and those who believe the procedure should only be illegal in most situations.  While only 37% of Americans stand on the left half of the spectrum, fully 60% place themselves on the right half . 

Gallup also found both men and women who identify themselves as pro-life jumped 8% and 6%, respectively.  This year, 49% of women and 54% of men identify themselves as pro-life vs. 43% of women and 46% of men in last year’s survey.

All three categories of religious preference used by Gallup showed gains in the percentage of pro-life Americans as well.  Protestants identifying themselves as pro-life shot up 8%, Roman Catholics 7%, and those who categorized themselves not in either of these two groups (other/none) but consider themselves pro-life rose 4%. 

This is great news for the pro-life movement in the US.  But what will it mean on the political front?

Gallup says “With the first pro-choice president in eight years…Americans — and, in particular, Republicans — seem to be taking a step back from the pro-choice position. However, the retreat is evident among political moderates as well as conservatives.”

Personally, I believe this dramatic shift is a direct result of the radical changes President Obama and the Democrats in Congress are cramming down our throats.  We saw the beginnings a conservative uprising immediately following the November election with groups like Rebuild the Party and Top Conservatives on Twitter springing up on the internet, and more recently the Tea Party, the 9/12 Project, and numerous other conservative activist organizations.

Sounds like great news for the Republican Party, right?

Not if it listens to the numerous calls that insist a move to the center is the GOP’s only hope for survival, like seen here, here, and here.  There’s evidence the party may already have charted this course.  Continuing to take this path will only make matters worse as the party continues to alienate true conservatives, and offers no alternative to the Democrats and their left-wing, Socialist agenda.

Rush Limbaugh‘s been saying it, Dick Cheney‘s been saying it, I and countless others have been saying it, the GOP needs to move back to its conservative roots if it hopes to recover from the thrashing it’s taken in the last two election cycles.

This Gallup poll should tell the GOP a move to the center will be committing suicide.

Obama takes jab at Tea Parties…

Joining left-wing hack Janeane Garofalo, Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowski, and the MSM in trashing the hundreds of thousands of us who participated in the Tea Parties, the Obamessiah implied Americans concerned over his tax and spend policies aren’t serious.

This arrogant, insolent Chicago shyster has his elitist nose so high in the air he just can’t believe anyone with a measurable IQ could disagree with him!

Well Mr. President, we are serious. We seriously believe you are burdening our children and grandchildren with a mountain of debt that will enslave them to supporting your bloated federal bureaucracy long after you’re gone. We seriously believe your apologizing to and embracing of ruthless dictators who consistently call for the destruction and demise of the US damages our national security and our world standing. We seriously believe the private sector can run corporations more efficiently than can the federal government.

We are serious Mr. President, but go ahead, continue to take us lightly.

The problem with handouts…

Here’s a great cartoon illustrating the real problem with the Dems’ approach to the economy–human nature!

The true cost of Obama’s stimulus…

The arrogance of left-wing zealots has been exposed in the wake of the recent Tea Party movement across the nation. 

Congresswoman Jan Shakowsky called us “shameful” and “disgusting” for practicing our 1st Amendment rights.  White House advisor David Axelrod let his true beliefs show when he slipped and stated that our standing up to defend our political beliefs is “unhealthy.”  In the same interview, James Carville thinks the movement is “harmful to Republicans.”  Far left actress and activist Janeane Garofolo spews her vitriol with MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann grunting his agreement, insisting all the protesters are “racist rednecks” who are only protesting a black man in the White House.

They’re so conceited, they believe themselves so superior to everyone else, that they honestly believe no reasonable person can disagree with them!  And they call us elitists?

The Heritage Foundation has a great article, with a great graphic that should convince anyone we have valid reason to be concerned and even challenge our government for the dangerous course it’s charting.  There’s no doubt we can lay some of the blame for the increased red ink on Bush, but Obama seems hell-bent on making sure we drown in it!

Apparently, commenters on the Heritage article sought to convince readers these numbers were contrived as part of some anti-Obama conspiracy, but the post was updated to inform readers the source data for this chart comes from the Washington Post.

So here it is libs, the real reason we’re out there trying to stop this madness before it’s too late!

Why Socialism Won’t Work…

#tcot

I received an email from a colleague with the following story today. No source is cited, but it’s worth as much if it’s a parable as it would be if it’s factual.

Only the totally naive will fail to see this tale illuminates the inherent weakness of a Socialist economic system–lack of incentive creates a subsequent lack of productivity on the part of the populace.

Excellent Lesson In Economics

An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.

Source unknown

Ronald Reagan once said “It’s not that my liberal friends are ignorant, it’s just that they know so much that isn’t true.”

It’s time for the (Tea) Party!

#tcot

This may be the first time I’ve ever looked forward to April 15th, but I’m glad it’s finally here!

I’ll be participating in the Tea Party in Little Rock, AR, but regardless where you live there’s a Tea Party near you!

If you’re sick and tired of the Obama change (headlong charge) hurtling this country down the path toward Socialism or if you believe there’s a better way (i.e. FairTax, Flat Tax, etc.) to fund the government than the current monstrosity we call a tax code, come join us as conservatives enter a platform historically dominated by Liberals–the organized protest.

We’ve seen what happens when we sit back and allow ourselves to be the “Silent Majority.” Our party has lost all sense of the principles that made it great and the country has elected a Left-Wing Radical that threatens to dismantle the very system that made the USA the strongest country in the world in a very short time. Our way of life is at stake, let’s join together for real change–a change that will once again make our country a place where our children can fulfill their dreams.

Find a Tea Party and help us take America back!

Mainstream Media Loathe to Cover Arson at Palin’s Church

Wasilla Bible Church

Wasilla Bible Church

The ATF has now joined the investigation of the Wasilla Bible Church arson. The agency reported accelerants were placed in several locations around the church, including the entrances.

Although it’s possible this fire was unrelated to the Governor’s recent foray into the 2008 presidential race, I’m guessing it is related. Now, I realize I could be wrong, but my hunch is some radical liberal feels so threatened by Palin and her beliefs that s/he felt justified to torch the church.

Searching for information on the arson, I googled several different variations of “atf report on palin church fire.” I was surprised (I shouldn’t have been) to find Fox News is the only major news outlet actively reporting on this story. The first two hits on the search results are links to Fox News stories, nothing from ABC, CBS, NBC, the LA Times, the NY Times. According to this Newsbusters article, I’m not alone in wondering “Why aren’t the mainstream media reporting this story?”

Imagine if the target of this arson had been the church of Jeremiah Wright–Obama’s old church. They’d be all over this story, reporting it as a hate crime. But, apparently its only a hate crime in the eyes of the MSM if it’s committed against groups which primarily identify themselves as liberals. This story doesn’t deserve attention by the MSM even though there were actually people inside the church, including two children, when the fire was set.

I suspect the liberal MSM doesn’t want to cover this story because they simply don’t want to report anything that paints liberals in a negative light. It’s no wonder this recent Zogby poll showed the internet and Fox News are the most trusted news sources.

This started me thinking, if the arson was politically motivated, what type of Democrat would have committed such a crime?

Some are speculating gay rights activists may have started the fire in response to the church’s support of a conference which promised to “help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome.” One would expect a group that constantly calls for tolerance would be more tolerant toward those with whom they disagree, but Democrats’ demands for tolerance don’t usually extend to toleration of conservative ideology.

Or it could have been activists from the environmental wing of the Democratic party in response to Palin’s call for more drilling in the arctic. They’re known for arson attacks on car dealerships and other institutions they believe damage the environment. You’d think these folks wouldn’t do such a thing considering the large amounts of pollutants released by a burning building, but like I said, they’re known for these sorts of attacks.

Maybe animal rights activists Democrats were motivated by Palin’s affinity for hunting. They’re well known to attack medical laboratories or other institutions they believe practice cruelty to animals. Logic leads one to believe that people who place such high value on animal life would assign a similar value to human life, but often this isn’t the case. The life of the elk Palin might harvest next year is more valuable to these folks than the lives of those two children who were inside the church at the time.

These types of people are the reason the MSM isn’t reporting this story. They don’t want the public to identify the Democratic party with radical elements of these groups and others who primarily identify themselves as Democrats.

Oh, they’re always quick to report an attack on an abortion clinic (which I don’t condone) because those are usually committed by radical elements of the conservative movement. But an attack on a conservative institution by a radical Democrat rates barely a mention, if any at all.

And they act appalled that we don’t trust them?
