The House is debating a bill that will make it illegal for a doctor to perform an abortion simply because the mother doesn’t like the gender of her unborn child.  Only the doctor is punished for this – not the mother. 

From the floor of the House yesterday, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D, CA) said, among other things:  “Of course we are opposed to SEX SELECTION BASED ON GENDER.”


Go to 0:43…. Listen to the next 20 seconds!  Yep - you heard her correctly!

'Obama ... Stressed He Probably Knows About Judaism More than Any Other President'

Today there’s a post in the Weekly Standard about Obama meeting yesterday with "about 20 Conservative Jewish community leaders, thanking them for the work they do to improve communities around the country and discussed their shared commitment to rebuilding the U.S. economy."

In the course of the meeting Obama reportedly boasted about his knowledge of Judaism, telling the leaders that he thinks he knows more "about Judaism" than all past presidents.  He said he gained this knowledge of Judaism from reading. 

"Obama ... stressed he probably knows about Judaism more than any other president, because he read about it," Haaretz reports. "[He] wondered how come no one asks Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner or Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel about their support to Israel."

~ ~ ~ ~

Bill Kristol, also of the Weekly Standard, replied the following in his OWN post on the website….. WAY TO GO, MR. KRISTOL‼‼!


Three comments:

1. The reason no one asks John Boehner or Mitch McConnell about their support for Israel is ... because they really do support Israel. The reason people ask Barack Obama about his support for Israel is because his support for Israel has been equivocal.

2. It's truly pathetic that Obama has to reach for the tired (to say the least) trope that some of his best friends were Jewish. Actually, one wishes more of his best friends were pro-Israel Christians. They might have had more luck convincing him, a fellow Christian, that he should be pro-Israel.

3. And the claim that Obama knows more about Judaism than any president? His vanity boggles the mind. One could begin by citing Adams and Madison, who knew Hebrew, or Harry Truman, who knew Jewish history ... but it's silly to dignify this claim with a rebuttal. In thinking about the presidents since Truman, though, I'd guess the president who knew the most about Judaism was Jimmy Carter, who taught Sunday school and had a deep interest in religion. So let's stipulate that of the modern presidents, Carter and Obama "know" the most about Judaism. But what is it they know? In Obama's case, one could ask whether what he “knows” is what he learned from Rashid Khalidi and Jeremiah Wright.

What better place for a campaign speech and photo op on Memorial Day than the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial.  This is THE most visited monument on the mall, especially on Memorial Day.

Obama gave a 15-minutes speech, with Biden by his side (apparently to keep him from putting his foot in his mouth somewhere ELSE yesterday.)

A 15-minute speech.

On Memorial Day.

The Wall was closed to the public for 7 hours, beginning at 7:30 a.m. because of Obama’s 15-minute speech at 2:00 in the afternoon.

Hundreds if not thousands of Vietnam veterans and families of Vietnam veterans killed in Vietnam stood in disbelief as Secret Service, Park Police, Washington DC Police, etc., blocked all access to the Vietnam Memorial and kept everyone approximately 100 yards away from their memorial for the first time in the history of the Memorial so Obama could get some photos of him at the Wall. Veterans in uniforms stood in the heat angered as Obama makes them wait. It was a photo op at their expense and families of those killed in Vietnam.

House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.

The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.

In her distributed remarks, Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion criticized "conservative messages [that are] racially 'coded' and had images of people of color that we commonly see used" and proposed tactics for countering the Republicans' (presumably) racially-coded rhetoric.

According to Wiley's group's website, "right-wing rhetoric has dominated debates of racial justice – undermining efforts to create a more equal society, and tearing apart the social safety net in the process" for over 25 years. Wiley had been invited to run the Democrats "through their strategy and how they message and talk about stuff" pertaining to race and fiscal policy, a staffer for Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., explained.

As samples of race-coded rhetoric, Wiley reminded the Democrats of statements by Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Of Gingrich's famous comment about President Obama, her distributed remarks note, "Calling a Black man 'the food stamp president' is not a race-neutral statement, even if Newt Gingrich did not intend racism."

But the threshold for what constitutes racially charged messaging is not always so high. One of Santorum's cited comments was: "Give them more food stamps, give them more Medicaid is the administration's approach, rather than creating jobs." She also cited this comment from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., about raising taxes to fund government programs: "I've never believed that you go raise taxes on those that are paying in, taking from them, so that you just hand out and give them to someone else."

Wiley, who did not respond to the Examiner's inquiries yesterday, offered this warning to Democrats about talking to "someone [who] opposes racial justice" but could support Democratic policies: "Don't make the mistake of telling them they're in the problem. It's emotional connection, not rational connection that we need."

To that end, Wiley proposed the use of "race explicit" anecdotes to illustrate problems like the economic crisis. "Explain how each racial group is affected (recognize the unique pain of each group), but start with people who are White," she wrote in her distributed remarks. "Then raise racial disparities." For example, she offered the line: "Homeownership is the American Dream. It hurts the same to lose your home if you're White, Asian, Latino or Black."

Wiley urged Democrats to appeal to "white swing voters while building support among voters of color." She explained that Democratic outreach to white voters needs to communicate that "people of color are in pain and it's the same pain I, as a White person, would or do feel. It's [about] humanizing people of color."

The Washington Post ran an 11,000 word front page story this past week on a 1963 incident of probable hazing by Mitt Romney when he was a student at a private school.  Apparently he held down and cut the hair of a fellow student (who classmates TODAY say may have been gay – but no one apparently knew for sure.)  The Post was obviously preparing this story for release ‘later’ – closer to the November election.  We know this because when Obama ‘came out’ in favor of gay marriage, his campaign said they planned to release Obama’s EVOLVED position later in the summer.  There is no way in HELL the Post could have come up with this LENGTHY article in the short time between BIDEN stating his OWN position on gay marriage and Obama jumping on the bandwagon 3 days later.  We also know it was in the works based on a REVISION OF A STATEMENT made by a Romney cohort back then. 

Read these two PUBLISHED statements in the WAPO and tell me what it reminds you of:

This is the original paragraph quoting a man named Stu White:

“I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and has long been bothered by the Lauber incident .  “But I was not the brunt on any of his pranks.”

Now – here is the REVISED quote from Stu White, that showed up in later WAPO editions (but which went unremarked about by the Post editorial staff other than a note at the very end of the 11-page article):

“I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and said he has been “disturbed” by the Lauber incident since hearing about it several weeks ago, before being contacted by The Washington Post.  “But I was not the brunt of any of his pranks”.

The Post changed the quote after talking to White again and discovering that White only learned of the prank in recent weeks after being told of it by a Cranbrook classmate.

OK, my friends.  Does this remind you of a published phone call conversation between the police dispatcher and one George Zimmerman?  A conversation that was SELECTIVELY EDITED by the press in a manner that completely changed the context of the comment?  Notice that the phrase ‘LONG BEEN BOTHERED’ in the first version of White’s comment was changed to read ‘DISTURBED’, and a time line was added – one that did NOT begin in 1963.

In my opinion, this is an intentional MISQUOTE, written to make the incident sound worse than it was.  The Washington Post has ZERO credibility and they should be called out on this!

The Washington Post belongs in the bottom of a litter box and NOT on America's newsstands!


Regarding Obama's EVOLUTION - seems more like a REVOLUTION - as in a 'revolving door'

1996, as a candidate for the State Senate in Illinois, Mr. Obama responded to a questionnaire from a gay newspaper. “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages,” Mr. Obama wrote, “and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”

2004:  When Obama ran for the United States Senate, his position had changed.  A Chicago Democrat who was co-chairwoman of a committee of gays and lesbians supporting Obama, said he raised practical objections and made his case this way: 
“Why spend a lot of time on an issue that is not going to happen? The Defense of Marriage law is on the books, we’re not going to overturn that, let’s talk about how we can build more equality.” 
2008:  As a presidential candidate, Obama’s anti-gay-marriage position was again clarified when he visited the Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif.  Pastor Rick Warren asked him to define marriage. “I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Mr. Obama said. “For me, as a Christian, it is also a sacred union.”

2012:  Obama 'comes out' in favor of gay marriage

Saturday, May 12, 2012


Last Tuesday North Carolina passed by a 61% to 39% vote, a two-sentence amendment to the state Constitution, defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Gov. Bev Perdue (D) said Friday that she was “embarrassed by voters' passage of an anti-gay marriage amendment to the state's constitution earlier this week, primarily because it made the state look like Mississippi."

Later in the day, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said it was "petty" for North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue to insult Mississippi while bemoaning that voters in her state approved a ballot measure banning same-sex marriage.   In a written statement, Bryant added, "Apparently, North Carolina's voters are much more in line with Mississippi's traditional values on marriage than those of Gov. Perdue."  Touché, Gov. Bryant!

Since 31 other states [including CALIFORNIA] have voted to define marriage as between one man and one woman, North Carolina can hardly be called out of the mainstream.

Perdue made a surprise announcement in late January that she wouldn’t be running for re-election in November.  I am convinced that Obama sees her as a liability, mainly because she’s dumb, and told her to step aside  It’s because of her that the Republicans took BOTH HOUSES OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE last November – the first time that’s happened since the late 1800’s.  [Yep – that’s not a typo].  

Funny that our referendum brought Joe Biden out on gay marriage, forcing Obama’s hand [or teleprompter] to follow suit.  Obama also cancelled a trip to Asheville, in the western part of the state, on election day, at the same time saying he HAS to carry N.C. in November.  [Seems N.C. is a 'swing' state - we just don't swing the way he's wishing.]  Now the Democrats are crying foul and talking about moving the Democrat National Convention out of Charlotte and to another state.  Yeah – that’s a sure way for Obama to carry North Carolina.

Gotta love Tarheel politics.

There is something fundamentally wrong with a government that is up in arms about the obesity rate in this nation and screaming about how much this will cost in medical care down the road..... while at the same time paying people to sit on their ass.

Obama has now acknowledged to biographer David Maraniss that the 'New York girlfriend named Genevieve' [from President Obama's 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father] was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago. [Ed. note:  Funny that not a damn one of them has EVER come forward.]

I guess it’s better to have a composite girlfriend than a blow-up doll.  Or better than showing your membership card to Man’s World, the Chicago gay bathhouse he and Rahm Emanuel are said to be lifetime members of.
