CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA DNC

THIS IS NOT DIRECTED AT A  PERSON, THIS IS THE REPRESENTATION AND ACTIONS OF THE DEMOCRATIC  PARTY AS A WHOLE

  – by Rev. Austin Miles

 CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (9/11/12) When the DNC came to Charlotte area churches, 100 of them, offered hospitality, not knowing how  much the Dems hate God and would actually boo God at the convention.

 They had no idea how that hatred would be directed at them and their churches.

The Sunday before the DNC, over 9000 people had come together to  pray for the convention. Then, wanting to extend hospitality to the  visitors to their city, 56 of the churches set out to "Adopt-a- Delegation."

 They put together gift baskets featuring Carolina Pralines and a  letter welcoming them to the city and offering assistance in  transportation, childcare or spiritual matters. According to writer,  Todd Starnes, The DNC banned the churches from distributing the gift  baskets to delegates because, DNC said, the congregations hold values that are contrary to the party platform. Read that carefully  AGAIN.
 
David Benham, one of the organizers of the outreach said, "We were  just trying to display Southern hospitality." DNC officials,  however, conveyed to city leaders that the Christians would not be  allowed to present their gift baskets. Even the Charlotte Mayor’s  office jumped in to tell the churches not to participate, saying  that their views on women’s rights are contrary to the platform.

 That’s right…the same platform that booed God later.

Benham then asked if they could send welcome letters to the  delegates. Again, the DNC refused, because, they said, "The churches  hold pro-life values." The baskets did not contain a single political or pro-life message. They just wanted to give them regional candles and a welcome letter. The DNC refused to return  numerous phone calls seeking comment.

 But it gets worse. When a gathering of 200 Muslims showed up to pray  for the convention, the Dems welcomed them with open arms and the  liberal media gave extensive national coverage. It is ironic that this day, in the shadow of that Islamic prayer event, we commemorate the greatest tragedy in American History, when Muslims attacked  America on September 11, 2001, brutally killing thousands of  innocent people.

 Muslims who publicly state their hatred of our country with fierce  determination to kill us all and put America under Sharia Law, are  welcomed by the Democratic Party while Christians are pushed out of  sight like criminals because they respect life and hold family values.

These are the same democrats who want you to vote them into office to direct the United States of America and every life from beginning to end. It is obvious that we must not let this happen.

CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS


Sound financial management does not exist in Chicago Public Schools, and apparently has not for some time, at least when it comes to contract negotiations.

They were warned that new labor expenses might result in a credit downgrade for the financially-strapped school district, and they chose to ignore it.

WELL GUESS WHAT.  The credit rating agency Moody’s has downgraded the school district for the second time in one quarter.

Chalk one up for the Chicago Teachers Union. It’s insistence on pressing for higher wages at a time when the district could not afford it has pushed CPS even closer to financial collapse. And Mayor Rahm Emanuel doesn’t deserve a pass. He didn’t have the guts to stand up to the union, and now schoolchildren and taxpayers will pay.

The strike was illegal and he should have given them 24 hours to return to work or be fired.

The downgrade will, of course, make it more expensive for the school district to borrow money, complicating an already messy financial situation.

You taxpaying citizens Illinois, and particularly Chicago, take a tip from your neighbors to the north in Wisconsin. They solved the collective bargaining problem, and their schools are getting by just fine.

 

MARXISM IN AMERICA watch this video


This video is Lt Gen Boykin.  He was the commander of "Delta Force" and later commander of the US Army Special Operations Command.  
He is a true American hero. 

I'm not big on conspiracy theories but this General is right..
 


 
You need to watch this and then forward to everyone you know.  

A video that will make you think seriously!  This is bone chilling and 52% of the voters did this to us by electing Obama.

Remember this general’s words when you go to the voting booth this November!

Top Five Worst Obamacare Taxes Coming in 2013

Top Five Worst Obamacare Taxes Coming in 2013


Of the twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare, below are the five worst that will be foisted upon Americans for the first time on January 1, 2013.

Of the twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare, below are the five worst that will be foisted upon Americans for the first time on January 1, 2013:

The Obamacare Medical Device Tax – a $20 billion tax increase: Medical device manufacturers employ 409,000 people in 12,000 plants across the country. Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales – even if the company does not earn a profit in a given year. In addition to killing small business jobs and impacting research and development budgets, this will increase the cost of your health care – making everything from pacemakers to prosthetics more expensive.

The Obamacare “Special Needs Kids Tax” – a $13 billion tax increase: The 30-35 million Americans who use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs will face a new government cap of $2,500 (currently the accounts are unlimited under federal law, though employers are allowed to set a cap).
There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children. There are several million families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education. This Obamacare tax provision will limit the options available to these families.

The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income – a $123 billion tax increase: This is a new, 3.8 percentage point surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single). This would result in the following top tax rates on investment income:
Capital Gains Dividends Other*
2012 15% 15% 35%
2013+ (current law) 23.8% 43.4% 43.4%
The table above also incorporates the scheduled hike in the capital gains rate from 15 to 20 percent, and the scheduled hike in dividends rate from 15 to 39.6 percent.

The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions – a $15.2 billion tax increase: Currently, those Americans facing high medical expenses are allowed a deduction to the extent that those expenses exceed 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI). This tax increase imposes a threshold of 10 percent of AGI. By limiting this deduction, Obamacare widens the net of taxable income for the sickest Americans. This tax provision will most harm near retirees and those with modest incomes but high medical bills.

The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike -- an $86.8 billion tax increase: The Medicare payroll tax is currently 2.9 percent on all wages and self-employment profits. Under this tax hike, wages and profits exceeding $200,000 ($250,000 in the case of married couples) will face a 3.8 percent rate instead. This is a direct marginal income tax hike on small business owners, who are liable for self-employment tax in most cases.
The table below compares current law vs. the Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike:
First $200,000
($250,000 Married)
Employer/Employee
All Remaining Wages
Employer/Employee
Current Law 1.45%/1.45%
2.9% self-employed
1.45%/1.45%
2.9% self-employed
Obamacare Tax Hike 1.45%/1.45%
2.9% self-employed
1.45%/2.35%
3.8% self-employed

THIS MAKES MY POINT ABOUT PUBLIC SCHOOLS



Communism on Parade?

High School Marches to Marx and Lenin

By Paul Kengor    9/28/2012


Editor’s note: A version of this piece first appeared at FoxNews.com.

“What do you think of this?” So began a phone call from Todd Starnes of FoxNews radio. Starnes asked me for a comment on a shocking story: A band at a high school near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania performed a halftime show titled, “St. Petersburg 1917,” a musical commemoration of the Bolshevik Revolution, replete with hammers and sickles, military uniforms, and red flags.

“No way,” I responded. “Are you sure this wasn’t a joke, a parody?”

It wasn’t. And parents of the students aren’t laughing.

The superintendent of the school genuinely pleaded innocence. “It’s a representation of the time period in history, called ‘St. Petersburg 1917,’” she said. “I am truly sorry that somebody took the performance in that manner. I am.” She continued: “If anything is being celebrated it’s the music…. I’m just very sorry that it wasn’t looked at as just a history lesson.”

Well, as a history lesson, I give it a giant, red “F.”

To be fair to the superintendent, she sincerely doesn’t seem to understand what’s so bad about this incident, and why it’s in bad taste. In fact, therein is the basic problem: We have failed to teach the horrors of the Bolshevik Revolution specifically and of communism generally.

Those horrors include over 100 million corpses generated by communist governments, starting with the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917—that is, “St. Petersburg 1917.” For perspective, 100 million is twice the combined deaths of World War I and II, the two deadliest conflicts in history. Even then, 100 million dead, which is the estimate provided by the seminal Harvard University Press work, “The Black Book of Communism,” is a conservative figure. The latest research claims that Mao Tse-Tung was responsible for the deaths of at least 70 million in China, and Joseph Stalin alone may well have killed 60 million in the USSR.

And yet, far too many American are ignorant of this catastrophe, especially younger Americans. I know. I’ve been observing it carefully for years. I could give a thousand examples, but here are just a few:
One former student of mine, John, told me about his first assignment as a teaching assistant in a high-school history class. He offered to cover some of the lectures on the 1930s Soviet Union. His supervising teacher agreed. So, John methodically covered the famine in the Ukraine, Stalin’s purges, the Hitler-Stalin Pact.

John was pleased at how the students were electrified, hands in the air, many questions—clearly learning these hideous things for the first time. Yet, he also noticed the dirty looks from his supervisor. Later, the teacher testily reprimanded him: “Look, John, I want you to ease up on the Red-baiting and commie-bashing. Besides, these students are going to get a decidedly different view on communism from me.” She promised to teach “a softer side of communism.”

Another student of mine, Sean, told me of the elite Christian private school he attended, where the newly hired teacher, fresh out of a major university, told the students he was a “Christian communist,” and that anyone who is a Christian should be a communist.

Another student told me of a teacher who “convinced the entire class” that Marxism was a “wonderful” but “misunderstood” idea that simply had not been tried correctly. “He absolutely brainwashed us,” she told me bitterly.

These are merely three anecdotal examples.

What’s true for high schools is even worse at the university level. I lecture around the country, sponsored by groups like the Young America’s Foundation and Intercollegiate Studies Institute. I’m often requested to give a talk titled, “Why Communism is Bad.” When I read passages directly from the “Communist Manifesto,” or when I cite authoritative sources on the maimed and dead, the students are aghast, eyes wide open. Rarely are their professors in attendance.

Those same professors, incidentally, write the textbooks used by high schools. Several years ago, I did a comprehensive, two-year study on “World History” and “Civics” texts. The study looked at roughly 20 texts used in public schools. Their treatment of communism is scandalous. The greatest abuse is the sins of omission. I could not find a single text that listed figures on the dead under communist governments. These omissions were not repeated for historical abuses like the Inquisition, the Crusades, slavery, or the internment of Japanese Americans. “Right-wing” dictators like Cuba’s Batista and Chile’s Pinochet were treated far more harshly than Fidel Castro, who generated many more victims and was still in power.

I could go on and on.

In short, we now have an entire generation of Americans born after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and USSR. They didn’t live through the mass repression and carnage that was Soviet communism. They need to learn about it, just as my generation learned the evils of Nazism. Unfortunately, they are not. And so, we shouldn’t be surprised when they merrily march to the triumphal sounds of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Choose between a free phone or a free country



Voter Says I will Vote for Obama because he gave me a free Phone

This is how socialism is able to gain control of a country so easily.  
Of course the government will eventually run out of money because they can no longer borrow.  
But by that time it is too late.  It is a slippery slope with no turning back.



Putin wants Obama to win



FROM THE MOSCOW TIMES
 
It should come as no surprise that Putin wants Obama to win.

I’m begging for your help.



This election is not merely about jobs or deficit spending or fixing Medicare, as most people seem to believe.  Such uninformed beliefs only tend to lull the electorate into complacency and, worse, preserve the Obama machine's politics-as-usual cover.

Obama has gone way beyond ignoring the law of the land.   He has become the law of the land.  That’s why the election 2012 is anything but politics as usual.  The very existence of out country as we know it is at stake. 

With President Obama promoting Marxism over capitalism, America’s military going gay, racial tensions being ignited, criminal acts becoming more violent, etc. it is time to challenge our status quo.   If we choose to remain complacent and comfortable in our Facebook communities with “can’t fight city hall” attitudes, then it will not be just us who pay the price, it will also be our children and grandchildren.

This irresponsible form of ever increasing totalitarian power is what the 2012 election is all about. Whether they realize it -- and most don't -- Americans are about to decide whether to empower the increasingly dictatorial executive branch of Barack Hussein Obama, whose future plans to distort "checks and balances" promises to transform the U.S. government out of all recognition, or to break the momentum of government centralization by electing Romney-Ryan.

This election is the most important election in our lifetime if not in the history of the Republic.  And, it is for keeps.  We will not get another chance.  If Barack Obama doesn't lose his bid for a second term, he and his vast, left-wing support network of Marx-inspired think tanks, strategists and elected officials will fulfill Obama's 2008 campaign promise to "fundamentally" transform this nation, thus bringing the American experiment in liberty to what could be the final curtain.

Remember when Obama sent this message to Putin “After my election I have more flexibility."?   I think we all know he wasn’t talking about more time to play golf.

Here are some of the first things you can expect to happen PDQ if Obama wins re-election.

The middle class will see massive tax increases: Congress has been at an impasse because Republicans want to cut spending and Democrats want to raise taxes. Despite all the talk you hear about the "Buffet Rule," it would produce a comparatively small amount of actual revenue because the rich are close to tapped out. The real money is in the middle class. If we're not going to cut our escalating spending, then taxes on the middle class will have to soar like an eagle fired out of a cannon.

Gas and energy prices will be dramatically higher: Obama once said, "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." His Energy Secretary Steven Chu added, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe." Is it any wonder that Obama won't drill ANWR, has blocked the Keystone Pipeline, and has slow-walked offshore drilling? Obama views sky high energy prices as a feature, not a bug and if he doesn't have to face the voters again, expect to see energy prices like you have never imagined. 

America's credit rating slides further: Under Barack Obama's leadership, America lost its AAA credit rating for the first time since 1917.   You ain’t seen nutin yet.

Obamacare goes into effect: If the GOP controls the House, the Senate, and the White House, it should be able to gut Obamacare and keep it from ever going into effect.  On the other hand if Obama is reelected, it’s Katie bar the door.

Get ready for completely open borders: Barack Obama has already bypassed Congress to implement the DREAM ACT by fiat, he's planning to break the law to hand out work permits to illegal aliens, he's openly proclaimed that ICE won't pick up many of the illegals detained by Arizona, and illegals are now being released by the border patrol sans proof if they claim they went to high school here.  We're very close to having an open border policy right now for any illegal alien who hasn't committed a felony here and in an Obama second term, it's fair to assume that the primary qualification for citizenship would be the ability to sneak into the country.

Gun control will be a top priority: Barack Obama filled out a "questionnaire in which he called for banning 'the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns'" and he let everyone know what he thought about gun owners even before he was elected with his notorious "bitter clingers" quip.  His campaign website doesn't even have a section addressing 2nd Amendment issues, perhaps because Obama would have to admit that he's already calling for a reinstatement of the Assault Weapons Ban.  Without an election to keep him in check, expect Barack Obama to "evolve" on gun control the same way he did on gay marriage.   With the plans he has for this country, he does not want an armed citizenry.

The Supreme Court will move to the left: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 79, Antonin Scalia is 76, Anthony Kennedy is 75, and Stephen Breyer is 73.  Replacing Ginsburg or Breyer with 50 year old liberals would be bad enough, but imagine Obama selecting a replacement for Scalia or Kennedy.  If that happens, Obama would have five guaranteed votes on the Supreme Court for anything he wants to do.  Once we get to that point, the Constitution might as well not even exist.

What we Americans are experiencing today is the intentional destruction of everything those patriotic Americans who came before us gave their lives to build and then preserve on countless battlefields here at home and around the globe.  Two hundred and thirty-six years of hard won battles—both of ideas and blood—are being tossed onto the ash heap of history in exchange for an ideology that has failed every single time it has been tried—and—has led to millions of deaths at the hands of their governments, millions dead of starvation, millions locked away in gulags or exiled from their homes and families, all the while living with deep dark paranoia that the free world is ever seeking to complete their destruction.   This is what is happening in the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea, and THIS IS WHAT IS IN STORE FOR AMERICA!

Just days ago, I had a conversation with a conservative friend who is convinced the election is un-winnable for Romney.  Pressed by me to explain why he feels that way, he despondently told me that he had concluded that America has already gone too deeply into socialism to extract herself.  He said he feels the only chance America has is to hit bottom, to collapse as a country, and, hopefully, those Americans left alive can try and build a new America from the ashes. 

Depressing?  You bet it is!  I’ve been mulling his words ever since and I must tell you, as I watch America following the “Pied Piper of America’s Destruction,” I have to conclude that my friend may well be more prescient than is comfortable for me.  You see, he may be among the very few who understand the significance of currently unfolding events in America today.

For God’s sake, if you know anyone in one of the swing states (or even a blue state for that matter), get on the phone and do everything you can to get them on the Romney bandwagon.  The stakes are simply too high…  I’m begging for your help.


Talk Radio Show Host Michael Savage



Talk Radio Show Host Michael Savage said 'Spineless' Obama 'crawled' before U.N.


With his Middle East policy imploding, Barack Obama “crawled” before “anti-American jackals” at the United Nations General Assembly today to apologize for a film that insulted Islam, said talk radio host Michael Savage.

“We have the most spineless, dangerous president in American history,” Savage told his “Savage Nation” listeners.

He expressed disgust for Obama giving deference to an audience that includes “Third World gangsters who sit there in their silk suits enjoying the 25 percent we the American taxpayer pay to keep them in their silk suits and their prostitutes on the Upper East Side.”

Notably, he said, the audience included the “Hitler of our time,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called for Israel’s destruction.

The Obama administration has blamed the attack on the anniversary of 9/11 that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Libya on rioting provoked by a bizarre anti-Islam trailer posted on YouTube.com, despite evidence of a coordinated attack by jihadists tied to al-Qaida.

“Our president begs them to forgive him for the video, when it wasn’t the video that caused it,” Savage said of Obama’s speech today.

Obama told the General Assembly he has “made it clear that the American government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity as an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.”

“I’m ready to throw up,” Savage said after playing a clip of Obama’s statement.

“Obama goes before the U.N. like a child and talks about a video? Uses the video to cover for his foreign policy disaster?”

Savage said Obama, who he called a narcissist, can’t ever admit he made a mistake, including his misjudgment of the so-called Arab Spring revolutions across the Middle East.

Obama thought that by appeasing the Muslim world, Savage said, “they would love him.”
“Instead, they killed our ambassador, and he’s done nothing about it, except crawl on his hands and knees.”

The attack that killed Stevens and three American diplomatic staffers, Savage said, was an act of war requiring a military response.

“Any other president would have launched missiles at their training camps,” he said, noting the Libyans have indicated they know who is responsible.

Mahmoud in love
Continuing with the theme of servility, Savage turned to CNN host Piers Morgan’s interview last night with Ahmadinejad.

Amid concern about the issue on everyone’s mind – Ahmadinejad’s repeated threat to destroy the nation of Israel – Morgan asked: “How many times in your life, Mr. President, have you been properly in love?”

“I’m in love with all of humanity,” Ahmadinejad replied through a translator. “I love all human beings.”

Morgan laughed, commenting: “That’s probably the best answer I’ve had to that question.”
Savage didn’t hide his revulsion.

“Shame on the stockholders of CNN,” Savage said, noting Ahmadinejad gave his speech in the city with the largest population of Jews outside of Israel.

Later, Savage wondered what it might be like if Morgan had interviewed Adolf Hitler: “Instead of asking about the box cars, the genocide that we hear that is going on in the death camps, Morgan says, ‘Mr. Hitler, when did you decide to become a vegetarian? Mr. Hitler, what is your favorite Bavarian pastry? Mr. Hitler, do you and Eva plan to tie the knot some time in the future?’”

To further compound the insult, Savage noted, Ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak on the Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur.

It’s like saying on Easter Sunday, he said, “I’m going to kill all the Christians.”

7 Incredible Stories About Mitt Romney



7 Incredible Personal Stories About Mitt Romney That You May Not Know (with links)

By John Hawkins   9/25/2012

Over the last few months, it has been absolutely stunning to see Mitt Romney, of all people, portrayed as some sort of greedy, ruthless, unfeeling corporate raider who plows over everyone who gets in his way so he can make a few dollars more. Of all the criticisms you could aim at Mitt Romney, there is none that has less validity than that one. In fact, the vast majority of people who read this column -- whether they're liberal, conservative, or moderate -- probably don't personally know a single person who has proven to be more generous and compassionate than Mitt Romney. Yes, really. It's okay if you're skeptical -- but, you won't be after you finish reading this column.


1) Mitt Romney saved the life of a 14 year old girl: Imagine what it would be like if we could have this kind of decisive people-centered leadership in the White House..

In 1998 the 14-year-old daughter of one of Romney's partners at Bain Capital, Robin Gay, had disappeared after attending a rave party in New York City. The distraught father was beside himself with terror of what may have happened to his little girl. 

Upon hearing of this, Romney stopped all operations at Bain and flew himself and all of the company's employees to New York to conduct the search. Using his contacts with establishments in New York that did business with Bain and an outlay of cash, Romney led a search for the girl from a command post he had set up in the LaGuardia Marriott that involved a private detective, Bain employees and customers putting up posters, handing out flyers, and interviewing prostitutes, drug addicts, and other street people in New York, and coordination with the New York Police.

A break came, after media publicity of the search, when a teenage boy called a tip line asking if there was a reward. He hung up, but not before the police traced the call to a home in New Jersey. The girl was found in the basement of the house undergoing withdrawals from a hit of ecstasy.

Romney, through his efforts, had saved the girl's life.


2) Mitt Romney gave milk to a V.A. hospital: This is the kind of thing Mitt Romney has done for people in need who cross his path.

He shared a story of a V.A. hospital in Boston that Mitt Romney stopped at while on the campaign trail running against Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy had made a thirty minute stop at the same location a couple of weeks prior. 

After touring the V.A. hospital, Mitt asked to look at their books. After he spent forty minutes going through their books, he told them, “You run a very good place, very tight. Very good.” Romney asked to go on another tour of the hospital, and after spending an hour and forty minutes there, the last question he asked was, “So what… what do you -- what are you lacking? What do you need help with?”

The response? “Milk.”

Since the press was around, snapping photos and asking questions, Glenn explained that Romney did a really awkward joke where he said, “maybe we should teach everyone here how to milk a cow.”
Of course, that’s all the press cared to hear and ran with a story that claims “Mitt Romney says veterans should have to milk cows.”

“This is where it gets good,” Glenn started. “Romney calls him up the next morning.”

Romney first apologizes to the man who runs the hospital for any problems the attention from the press jumping on his words brought to the hospital. He next offers to help with the milk situation.
“Friday comes, and the milkman comes,” Glenn continues. “This is what the vets needed – they needed 7,000 pints of milk a week. Milkman shows up, 7,000 pints. The head of the V.A. hospital asks, ‘Where did all this come from?’ He [the milkman] said ‘an anonymous donor.’ Now, the guy didn’t put it together.”

Glenn explains that when the next week rolled around, the milkman shows up again, and continued to show up every week for two years. After two years of delivering 7,000 pints of milk a week to the hospital, as the milkman is retiring, the man finally gets him to reveal the anonymous donor.
It’s Mitt Romney.

“Mitt Romney was writing a personal check and didn’t want anybody to know for two years and provided the vets with all of their milk in Boston,” Glenn explained to listeners this morning.
When Romney became governor, he sent a bill through to help the V.A. hospital – it was down to the dollar.


3) Mitt Romney helped a dying 14 year old boy write his will: In a profession filled with people who steal the credit for every good thing that happens and pass the buck at every opportunity, Mitt Romney's humility -- which is a wonderful trait in a human being, but a maladaptive one in a politician -- has kept him from hammering home stories like this in every swing state.

Pat Oparowski talks about the loving friendship Mitt Romney developed with her dying son David, remembering,
"David, knowing Mitt had gone to law school at Harvard, asked Mitt if he would help him write a will. He had some prize possessions that he wanted to make sure were given to his closest friends and family. The next time Mitt went to the hospital, he was equipped with his yellow legal pad and pen. Together, they made David’s will. That is a task that no child should ever have to do. But it gave David peace of mind. So after David’s death, we were able to give his skateboard, his model rockets, and his fishing gear to his best friends. He also made it clear that his brother Peter should get his Ruger .22 rifle. How many men do you know who would take the time out of their busy lives to visit a terminally ill 14 year old and help him settle his affairs?"
 
David also helped us plan his funeral. He wanted to be buried in his Boy Scout uniform. He wanted Mitt to pronounce his eulogy, and Mitt was there to honor that request. We will be ever grateful to Mitt for his love and concern.”

Ted Oparowski summed it up nicely when he said,
"You cannot measure a man’s character based on the words he utters before adoring crowds during times that are happy. The true measure of a man is revealed in his actions during times of trouble — the quiet hospital room of a dying boy, with no cameras and no reporters."


4) At one point, Mitt Romney was doing 10-20 hours a week of volunteer church service: At the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney's friend and fellow church member Grant Bennett talked about the Mitt Romney he knew.

While raising his family and pursuing his career, Mitt Romney served in our church, devoting 10, 15, and even 20 hours a week doing so. ...Drawing on the skills and resources of those in our congregation, Mitt provided food and housing, rides to the doctor, and companions to sit with those who were ill. He shoveled snow and raked leaves for the elderly. He took down tables and swept floors at church dinners. He was often the last to leave. Mitt challenged each of us to find our life by losing it in service to others. He issued that challenge again and again.

What do you think the chances are that the current occupant of the White House would voluntarily shovel snow and rake leaves for the elderly without any television cameras around?


5) Pam Finlayson talks about how Mitt Romney treated her family and her extremely ill child: Pam Finlayson gave one of the finest speeches at the Republican National Convention when she talked about her family's experience with Mitt Romney.

Later, when Finlayson and her husband Grant had a baby girl born dangerously premature, the man who decades later would stand at the threshold of the presidency was a steady and supportive presence at the hospital. 

“Kate was so tiny and very sick,” Finlayson recalled. “Her lungs not yet ready to breathe, her heart unstable, and after suffering a severe brain hemorrhage at three days old, she was teetering on the very edge of life.”

“As I sat with her in intensive care, consumed with a mother’s worry and fear, dear Mitt came to visit and pray with me,” she continued, as the partisan crowd listened in rapt silence. “I will never forget that when he looked down tenderly at my daughter, his eyes filled with tears, and he reached out gently and stroked her tiny back.”

“I could tell immediately that he didn’t just see a tangle of plastic and tubes; he saw our beautiful little girl, and he was clearly overcome with compassion for her.”

The little girl was slated for surgery around Thanksgiving, and Finlayson recalled Romney and his sons showing up with a Thanksgiving feast for the preoccupied parents. Finlayson said she later learned from Ann Romney that the food had been prepared by her husband.

Kate Finlayson survived, and the two families remained close, said Finlayson, who even babysat for the five “rambunctious” Romney sons before the family moved from Boston.

Last year, Kate Finlayson died at age 26 from complications she’d battled from birth, her mom said. And although Romney was in the midst of preparing his bid for the presidency, they remembered their old friends in yet another hour of anguish.

“When they heard of Kate’s passing, both Mitt and Ann paused, to personally reach out to extend us sympathy, and express their love,” Finlayson said.

“When the world looks at Mitt Romney, they see him as the founder of a successful business, the leader of the Olympics, or a governor,” she said. “When I see Mitt, I know him to be a loving father, man of faith and caring and compassionate friend."


6) Mitt Romney and his sons saved a family and their dog from drowning: Mitt Romney saw people in trouble and he didn't wait for the government to save them, he made a REAL gutsy call, and did what he had to do to save their lives.

But way back in the summer of 2003, the then-Massachusetts governor made the news for a very different reason: He helped save a Tewksbury family from drowning in New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee. 

The Morrisseys of Tewksbury were motoring their vintage wooden boat through the large lake on July 4 weekend that year when, around sunset and about 300 yards from shore, the vessel began taking on water. Robert Morrissey attempted to dial 911 on his cell phone, only to lose the device in the water as the boat started sinking rapidly.

That’s when Romney, who owns a home on the shore of the lake, and two of his sons jumped on jet skis and rode out to assist the six people, along with the family dog, struggling in the water.
The Romneys took two of the passengers ashore, and others in the area helped the rest of the family—and the dog, too — make it back to land without injury.


7) Mitt Romney pays for the college education of two boys who were left as quadriplegics after a car wreck: As you read this, imagine how you'd feel about Mitt Romney if you were Mark and Sheryl Nixon. Americans would be fortunate to have someone like Mitt Romney doing his best to try to help them.

Mark and Sheryl Nixon, along with their sons Reed and Rob and their daughter Natalie, told of a car accident that left Reed and Rob quadriplegics. Although the Nixon family knew of Romney and Romney had served as their Mormon stake president, they weren't well acquainted. 

Reed and Rob returned home from rehab in the late fall, near Christmas, Mark said. Around that time, Romney called and said he'd like to do something for the two boys. So Romney, his wife Ann, and three of their sons brought Christmas gifts to the family.

While Romney later offered to pay for Reed and Rob's entire college education, that Christmas Eve visit stands out in Mark's mind, he said, because instead of vacationing in Utah, New England or the Caribbean, the Romney family was visiting the needy.

"That actually, to me, has been more important to me than the financial help he gave," Mark said.
"After the initial experience of showing up, he didn't check that off his list and say, 'I did my duty,'" Natalie added. "He has, year after year, shown up at 5K races to run the event and participate."

HARRY REID: PUT UP OR SHUT UP



HEY Harry Reid:

It’s your turn to release your 2011 tax return

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid Should follow in the lead of Mitt Romney by releasing his 2011 tax return?

Citing an anonymous source, Mr. Reid has repeatedly claimed in recent weeks that Mr. Romney "didn't pay taxes for 10 years."

Mr. Romney countered that over the past ten years he never paid less than 13 percent of his taxable income and that "Harry Reid's charge is totally false."

Dippy Harry should explain to all of us how he became a millionaire on a bureaucrat's salary.  Mitt Romney earned his money by investing in companies, people and creating jobs in the private sector while Harry Reid made his money by taking money from the private sector and redistributing it through government."




 


OUR NEUTERED MILITARY



The Pentagon's war-fighting plans have been neutered
Lawyers defending a military officer who was punished for teaching about the dangers of radical Islam are accusing the Pentagon of selling out to political correctness.

“In order to appease Muslims and the White House, Gen. Dempsey and the Department of Defense rushed to punish Lt. Col. Matt Dooley,” said Richard Thompson, chief counsel for the Thomas More Law Center.

Dooley and the longstanding course he taught at the Joint Forces Staff College, “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism,” were targeted when Muslim groups demanded that material they viewed as offensive to Islam be “purged” from the coursework and that the teacher be “effectively disciplined.”

Dooley administratively was removed from his teaching assignment and an Officer Evaluation Report, marking him as outstanding, was withdrawn.

Thompson charged that Dooley’s commanders “violated not only our nation’s core principles of free speech and academic freedom guaranteed by our Constitution, but also, a number of the military’s own regulations dealing with academic freedom and non-attribution policies of the National Defense University.”

“They violated the right to due process of law and even bypassed the university’s provost, who under NDU’s own rules has primary responsibility for adjudication of this matter,” he said.

Dooley previously had been deployed in Bosnia, Kuwait and Iraq, serving as a tank platoon leader, tank company executive officer, operations officer, plans officer, small group instructor and instructor at the Joint Combined Warfare School.

He was awarded the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters and a dozen other honors.

The course, its materials and subject matter all had been presented before, but Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, publicly blasted Dooley.

In a Pentagon news conference May 10 with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Dempsey characterized Dooley’s teaching as “totally objectionable” and “against our values.”

The Thomas More Law Center called the news conference “astonishing and unprecedented,” noting Dempsey personally attacked “a subordinate Army officer who honorably served our nation, and was subsequently prohibited from publicly defending himself. ”

“The final bastion of America’s defense against Islamic jihad and Shariah, the Pentagon, fell to the enemy,” commented Claire M. Lopez, a former CIA agent and strategic policy and intelligence expert.

She noted Dempsey reissued his earlier order that all Department of Defense course content “be scrubbed to ensure no lingering remnant of disrespect to Islam.”

The Thomas More Law Center said Dooley was grappling in class with the most dangerous aspects of radical Islamist ideology and encouraged students to debate the issues openly, using “prior-approved course content, established guest speakers and doctrinal teaching methodologies.”

But a letter from Islamic groups, including some with known links to terrorism, demanded that all government training materials be purged, a mandatory retraining program be instituted and punishment be instituted for “bigoted trainers” who would use “biased training materials.”

The groups included the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Islamic Circle of North American and Islamic Relief USA.
Among the information cited as damaging was an FBI report that explained individuals who convert to Islam and suddenly begin wearing Muslim attire, growing beards and travel to Muslim countries could become radicalized.

Texts that were deemed biased included Robert Spencer’s “The Truth About Mohammed: Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion.”

“The result is certain,” Thomas More said in a statement. “Officers and instructors see what has happened to Lt. Col. Dooley, and will refrain from telling the truth about Islam or confronting the difficult strategic challenges facing our nation for fear of jeopardizing their professional careers. The Pentagon has still apparently not learned from the politically correct policies that led to the Fort Hood massacre.”

The legal team said enforcement of a political correct perspective is dangerous.

“Those people who subscribe and enforce the current environment of political correctness are the ones most often surprised by incidents like the terrorism at Fort Hood and the uncivilized behavior currently roiling North Africa and the Middle East,” the law team said.

“Rather than thinking and acting bravely, PC’ers strike at our cherished First Amendment in a vain hope of buying friendship with a force we still do not understand that neither respects us nor appreciates civility.”

The law firm, which noted Dooley’s family was targeted by threats, said the case illustrates the consequences of “prejudicial statements” from military commanders.

“Betrayed by his military chain of command, all of whom refused to stand behind their own academic freedom and non-attribution regulations, Lt. Col. Dooley stands alone in his association with what had been previously acceptable methods of educational inquiry.”



TRYING TO BE OPTIMISTIC



If Obama is once again successful in usurping the highest seat in Washington, he will truly inherit a mess this time.  He’ll need a whole case of prayer rug stain remover to clean-up his own crap.



God help us all, if that does happen.   There won’t be anything left of the US, the economy, the justice system, law and order to preserve!   I just cannot fathom how seemingly reasonable people cannot see what this guy is?  Every time I see this a-hole out stumping for himself, cascading lie after lie about his own record, his opponents, and I see stupid brainwashed people behind him just cheering away, I can’t help but just know that we’ve completely lost our way!



I fear what we are heading towards is another civil war, but this one won’t be about slavery (unless you talk about the economic kind!), and many lives will be lost.  If it is possible for there to be a bright side of such a war, we’d emerge (hopefully) from it with more resolve to insure that another tyrant like Obama could never again gain control of our country…

INVESTMENT TIP



Just thought I'd pass along some advice my broker gave me today...
I called him this morning and asked him what I should be investing in as I feel interest rates are going to be rising as they did during the late 70's early 80's. So I told him I thought we ought to be looking to get out of bonds and finding a safe haven in which to invest. I asked him, “Should we move to precious metals, foreign currency or what?”

He responded, "If the current President is in office much longer, canned goods, water and ammunition are probably your best bet."

VIOLENCE ACROSS THE MUSLIM WORLD



IN Nov. 2007 OBAMA SAID (click on link)  The Day I'm Inaugurated Muslim Hostility Will Ease...  

Last week, Muslim mobs took to the streets to murder the American ambassador in Libya and three of his staffers.  American embassies were attacked from Egypt to Yemen.

Embarrassed White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice insisted that these assaults were just reactions to an insensitive video circulating on the Internet that disparaged Islam.  As embassies burned, we were assured that there was no animosity directed at America in general, or at this administration and its foreign policy in particular. 

I know bullshit when I see it and I think most of us do.   The weeks-old video was a mere pretext, in the manner of the Danish cartoons that Islamists use to stir up mobs in their war against the West. The street rioting was long ago synchronized across the Middle East to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Apparently, the administration was left stunned and without a clue about the latest Middle East madness even though they were warned three days in advance.

President Obama chose not to support nearly a million Iranian dissidents in 2009.  Then, two years later, he belatedly offered encouragement to the revolutionaries who overthrew Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak. 

Yet those snubbed in Iran were far more likely to oppose radical Islam than the protestors who later put the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Cairo.

Following the murders of Ambassador Chris Stevens and a number of Americans, the liberal media raced to the presses to inform us all that Mitt Romney had spoken out about the attacks — and Obama’s mishandling thereof — inappropriately.  

The violence abroad — in concert with rapidly declining American prestige —clearly demonstrates that Obama has no more skill in the foreign arena than he has on the domestic front.

Yet the desperate distractions continue, and will until November.  Even as the liberal  media stagger from deserved criticism for their deliberate attempts to recast the Libyan atrocities (aided, as they were, by Obama policies that left Stevens and his fellow victims virtually defenseless), they have spun back for their masters in the Obama Administration.

As the week began, a six month old recording of Romney surfaced through the far left slums of the media.  Leaked by the grandson of the previous worst President and eternal national embarrassment Jimmy Carter, the tape supposedly reveals Romney writing off campaigning for the votes of 47 percent of the populace — a group he refers to as “dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.”

Although Romney’s remarks are entirely accurate, the Democrats and the media — who saw nothing worth criticizing in Obama infamous God and guns smear — have deployed condemnation of Romney’s statement as yet another deflection from the chaos that has consumed the Mideast.

Romney thinks too many Americans have sold their souls to the empty promises of unquantifiable “hope and change.”  Romney knows that striving for the votes of people who are still backing Obama amid the veritable misery he has inflicted on not only our Nation but members of his own Administration is a waste of resources.

Even now, Obama and Romney are racing neck and neck for the White House.  Neither seems to be able to claw his way past the 50 percent mark.  It would appear that somewhere between 5 and 10 percent of the actual electorate remains undecided.

Romney can either devote resources targeting the 47 percent who are sticking with Obama through record unemployment, record national debt, Operation Fast and Furious, “quantitative easing” and the train wreck of a foreign policy Obama has conducted; or he can acknowledge the 47-percenters exist, target instead those who are receptive to his campaigning and play to win.

In a recent Obama presser, not one reporter asked about Stevens and his fellow martyrs. No one queried about Obama’s decision to leave them exposed.  No one even asked about the rising anti-American violence in the Mideast.  One reporter did ask whether Obama was privy to updates from Afghanistan (which is taking a similar turn for the worse); and another asked about the President’s golf game.  

No one even approached the as yet barely reported story that Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius brazenly violated the Hatch Act.  That would normally result in termination, but apparently earns the violator applause in an Administration so bereft of respect for the law that the Attorney General has been found in both criminal and civil contempt of Congress — another disgrace that should have earned the violator a stretch in the pokey. The corporate media even got caught coordinating their questions for Romney.

However, while the Democrats try to keep us focused on what Romney’s saying, I can’t help but notice what Obama and his media minions aren’t saying.
