NRO – Not Really Observant

Did the National Review Online actually endorse John McCain over J.D. Heyworth?

REALLY??!!!

Here’s Mark Levin’s take on the whole subject from his Facebook page:

Rachel and the Hyde Amendment

    “Then they journeyed from Bethel. And when there was but a little distance to go to Ephrath, Rachel labored in childbirth, and she had hard labor. Now it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife said to her, ‘Do not fear; you will have this son also.’ And so it was, as her soul was departing (for she died), that she called his name Ben-Oni; but his father called him Benjamin. So Rachel died and was buried on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem). And Jacob set a pillar on her grave, which is the pillar of Rachel’s grave to this day.” (Genesis 35:16-20)

If Jacob and Rachel were living in the 21st Century and had the wonders of science at their disposal, it is not too far-fetched to imagine that doctors may have predicted Rachel’s death. Doctors may have been able to warn the couple that if the baby was allowed to come to term that Jacob’s beloved Rachel would most likely die in childbirth.

The Reality of Reality

    Cornyn: Conservatives ‘have to yield’ to reality in upcoming Senate races

In this posting by Michael O’Brien, Senator Cornyn drops this philosophical nugget:

Oh Oh Oh O’Reilly!!

Bill the Buffoon O’Reilly just had a lawyer from the Southern Poverty Law Center on who is demanding CNN fire Lou Dobbs. The Buffoon said they (I assume his show) looked into the birth certificate issue last year and they saw it and hey, it’s solved…no issue!

Add that to what Faux News did this weekend on Geraldo Rivera’s show with Ann Coulter and Mike Huckabee (just when you where winning me back Governor)…

No Virtue, No Liberty

As my regular readers know, I am embarking on a 3R strategy to Rescue Our Republic. The recipe for rescue is:

1. Reeducation: learning the traditional history and truth behind the founding of our nation, preeminently that this nation was founded as a Christian nation that allowed for freedom of worship or not to worship. It will also require American Christendom to have pastors in the pulpits across this country standing in the gap for Jesus instead of telling the flock to find your best life now.

May Posterity Forget You Were Our Countrymen

One of my favorite Founding Father quotes is from Samuel Adams:

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”

My good friend Lance Fairchok has written on American Thinker a scathing article of the same title as this post. Lance takes to task the conservative elitism of Washington D.C.

The Shirker Award

I’ve come up with a new award and with the help of Jason Zoglmann we have developed a mascot for our award. You might remember a blog post I made titled “Grand Ole Plan” (and yes Lance you did send this to me). Anyway, the GOP had a cute little mascot named Nick.

Well Jason and I have come up with the real mascot of today’s Republican Party, unfortunately. I take no great pleasure in this, but if we are going to have a conservative resurgence in the GOP, then we have to call it like it is.

Revealing the Counsels of the Hearts (Part 3)

Okay we’re picking up where we left off Saturday night where Tom Minnery asks Steve a question:

Tom Minnery of Focus on the Family
Tom Minnery of Focus on the Family
    “If you have a politician here who will be pro-life except in the case of rape and incest abortions, in other words he is 99% pro-life, and you have another politician who is 100% in favor of all abortions, what would you do?”

Revealing the Counsels of the Hearts (Part 1)

“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God.” 1 Corinthians 4:5

John 8:32

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Those are Jesus’ words from the eight chapter and thrity-second verse of the Gospel of John. Those thirteen words are the answer to America’s problems. But truth can be a funny thing because many believe that truth is in the eye of the beholder or that it is defined by current cultural standards.

That is what is known as moral relativism, which claims that no ethical system is better than another. But Jesus uses a very specific Greek word for truth – aletheia. Aletheia implies sincerity, actuality, and reality. This word is significant because aletheia is the truth that first appears when something is seen or revealed. So Jesus purposely used this word because He was teaching that this is absolute truth and is not something you can analyze and take into consideration outside factors. It is what it is.

McMentum

Well, the World Series is over and not only is Joe the Plumber paying attention to the election, but so is Joe Sixpack. The everyday hardworking American who is striving not for a handout but a chance to pursue the American dream without government intervention.

Zogby has a new one-day poll today, and the last few days of the campaign is where you see these polling companies get their numbers tight because they do this for their livelihood and that cannot afford to be way off. Check out the headline from the Drudge Report:

Dick Morris vs. Alan Colmes

One of the reasons I can rarely stomach Hannity and Colmes is the incessant and nonsensical political bickering that goes on this show. Now I understand it is a political debate show, but just once I would love to see Alan Colmes have an original thought where he actually speaks contemporaneously without looking at his Democratic talking points. Well none other than Dick Morris called Colmes on this very thing in H&C’s past VP debate show. I might actually watch this more often if this happened more often.

Burning Down The House: What Caused Our Economic Crisis?

Okay, I want to share a video with you that is, as my pastor likes to say, “chock-a-block” with information. This YouTube video crams as much information as possible into the allowed ten minutes for each posted video and a lot of information comes and goes on the screen. Just pause the video and read and take note of the information. Please pass this along to as many people as you can.

Obnoxious Obama

You all might remember the moment during the debates when John McCain told the story of the mother giving him her dead son’s bracelet and how Senator McCain eloquently and from a fond memory recited the story and the soldier’s name. And you may also remember Senator Obama’s fumbling and quite staged point of saying, “I have a soldier’s bracelet too.” It was fumbling because he didn’t have a teleprompter and actually had to look at the bracelet to figure out whose it was and it was staged because he no longer had permission to wear the bracelet that had been given to him by the mother. Quite the contrary, Senator Obama was told by the family of Sergeant Ryan David Jopek of Merrill, Wisconsin to not wear the bracelet any longer.

Now of course ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, and the Today Show are not going to cover this and this is why we have outlets such as NewsBusters to expose the lies and deceit that is Barack Obama. Make sure everyone who is voting for or considering voting for Barack Obama knows this. As a retired Army First Sergeant and a parent who lost his son in Iraq, my level of contempt and disgust of Barack Obama for the exploitation of a dead soldier and refusal to adhere to the wishes of a Gold Star Family defies words and knows no boundaries.

America’s Real Anxiety

Folks, Frank Salvato has just posted my latest column titled “America’s Real Anxiety” which is my analysis of the President’s speech Wednesday night. Here’s an excerpt:

The President finished his address with this final attempt to reassure the American people: “…history has shown that in times of real trial, elected officials rise to the occasion.”
