The universal wisdom offered by celestials

Before you dismiss this post “out of hand,” please read what Commander George W. Hoover has stated.  More and more of us are becoming aware that we are not alone.  After that, interpretations run the gamut, as they are wont to do.  One cannot begin to understand just what is going on here, unless one becomes cognizant of the fact that not only are “extraterrestrials” multidimensional, so are we.

“Universally acknowledged as the “grandfather” of satellite technology – and a close associate of Dr. Werner von Braun – Commander George W. Hoover has revealed that the truth about Roswell is far stranger that we have ever dared to think.”

Renowned U.S. Navy Commander Reveals Stunning Roswell Crash Secret

HOOVER’S MESSAGE TO MANKIND

Hoover died at age 83 in 1998.

In his decades of service to our country, the Commander helped to provide to mankind the vision to go beyond our planet Earth.

He aimed to take us high and far to the stars.

This is because Hoover knew that we can be so much more.

We have the potential to be at once an Interstellar and a Hyper-Dimensional race.

We will one day manipulate and morph the very fabric of space-time and matter itself. We too will traverse the vast cosmos in an instant.

When that day comes, the Navy Man tells us, we will no longer fear the Alien.

We will realize that we are the Alien.

George Adamski: A Herald for the Space Brothers

Excerpts

 ‘WHO ARE YOU, GEORGE?’

Preface

Steeped as they were in the materialistic world view so dominant in the 20th century, it didn’t take most members of the scientific community and the media much time to doubt, denounce and discard the facts and experiences which George Adamski described in the books that propelled him into the international limelight in the 1950s, Flying Saucers Have Landed and Inside the Space Ships.

In addition, governments and the military had everything to lose from a general awareness that humanity is not alone in the Universe, or even in our own solar

ix

system.

Yet, educating the public about the reality of Life on and from other planets was precisely the mission which Adamski had taken upon himself, and even in death he continues to be slandered for his pains.

Once our space probes had established that life as we know it was not possible on the dense-physical levels of planets like Mars and Venus, Adamski’s claims of having photographed space ships and meeting people from these planets were ridiculed, while skeptics tried to belittle him by cooking up lies about his profession, his character and his intentions, and covert government operations were allowed to go all-out to confuse the public mind about the true nature of the UFO phenomenon.

(Leslie had received some of Adamski’s pictures of the Venusian craft and in order to not spoil Adamski’s efforts in publishing a book, Leslie arranged to co-author a book with Adamski called; “Flying Saucers have landed”. An aristocratic background carries credibility and it could well be that Leslie was chosen or influenced by higher forces in “getting Adamski’s word out”.
 
Desmond Leslie refers to the work of a Meade Layne of California who was experimenting in `very advanced and mysterious fields of physics’ and who believed that `life on Venus takes place at a higher octave of matter than on Earth. Dr Layne gives details of Venusian ships, which fit in with many observation reports.)

Over the years much has been said and written about the man who is generally considered the first of the ‘contactees’ – very little of which involved much openmindedness and most of it being malicious theories, accusations, derogative comments, half-truths and outright lies.

Only a handful of authors, if that many, thought Adamski worthy of serious investigation.

While most authors, sympathetic or skeptic, busied themselves proving or disproving, as the case may be, Adamski’s claims about his experiences with UFOs and their occupants, he himself persevered and worked as hard as ever to help a deeply divided world obtain a sense of the fundamental oneness underlying all expressions of the universal life, which he experienced and was taught by his extraterrestrial contacts.

What he lacked, perhaps, in sophistication he made up for in urgency and steadfastness of purpose.

Rather than a proper biography which traces the life

x

of its subject, this book is more of a monograph about the scope and significance of Adamski’s work, which is reappraised here in light of the spiritual realities of life with the emergence into full public view of our Elder Brothers – the Masters of Wisdom of the Spiritual Hierarchy, headed by the World Teacher – and the Space Brothers from our neighbouring planets, at the dawn of the new cosmic cycle of Aquarius.

As these realities become clearer to more people every day, it will be seen that Adamski was hardly the “crackpot from California” that Time magazine and others made him out to be, but a visionary teacher who was far ahead of the small minds that were waging a cold war against not just political opponents, but against the fact of our interplanetary brotherhood, of which George Adamski was the bravest messenger.

So for the unprejudiced I now hand over the tale to George Adamski, who is the
first to be able to give us a documentary record of his experiences and
impressions on coming face to face with a man from another planet. Adamski
was not afraid when he saw the shining vehicle come down, nor when the
tremendous realisation burst upon him that he was standing face to face with a
living spiritual being, a man like ourselves, a human brother from another globe
of existence.
 
And so we who are of the same flesh and mould as Adamski can look up with
joy, rather than with fear, when from time to time other fragments; other people;
Sparks from the same flame, flash for a moment into the orbit of our perception,
knowing that, like ourselves, they are working out the full lesson of their worlds in

the slow, aeonic. struggling ascent towards union in the Central Mystic Sun,

known to sages and philosophers of all time as the goal and achievement, not
 
only of man, but of Cosmic Man himself, whom we shall re-become.
  

With two telescopes, one of which had a camera attached, Adamski said he was able to observe and photograph hundreds of saucers.

Now, for the first time I fully realised that I was in the presence of a man from

space—A HUMAN BEING FROM ANOTHER WORLD ! I had not seen his ship

as I was walking toward him, nor did I look round for it now. I did not even think of

his ship, and I was so stunned by this sudden realisation that I was speechless.

My mind seemed to temporarily stop functioning.

[….]

I am a firm believer that people who desire to convey messages to one another
can do so, even though they neither speak nor understand the other’s language.
This can be done through feelings, signs, and above all, by means of telepathy. I
had been teaching this as fact for 30 years and now I concluded I would have to
use this method if information of any kind was to pass between us. And there
were a lot of things I wanted to know, if I could only think of them.
 
So, to convey the meaning of my first question to him, I began forming, to the
best of my ability, a picture of a planet in my mind. At the same time I pointed to
the sun, high in the sky.

He understood this, and his expression so indicated. 

Now he understood perfectly, and smiling broadly he pointed to the sun; made

one orbit, made the second, then touching himself with his left hand, he gestured
several times with his right index finger toward the second orbit.
I took this to mean that the second planet was his home, so I asked, ‘You mean
you come from Venus ?’
 
This was the third time I had spoken the word ‘Venus ‘in relation to the second
planet, and he nodded his head in the affirmative. Then he, too, spoke the word
‘Venus’.

While I want to make it
 
very clear that the names I am introducing for these new friends are
not 
their correct names, I wish to add that I have my own good reasons
  
for choosing them, and that they are not without meaning in relation to those who will bear
them throughout these pages.
 
The Martian I shall call Firkon. The Saturnian is Ramu. My name for the Venusian will be Orthon.
 
[….]
 
I was quite unaware we had taken off, although I
did suddenly register a slight feeling of movement. But there was no sensation of enormous
acceleration, nor of changes in pressure and altitude as would be the case in one of our planes
going at half the speed. Nor had we experienced any jerk as we broke contact with the ground.

I had an impression of tremendous solidity and smoothness, with little more realization of

movement than of the unnoticeable journey of the Earth itself as it revolves around the Sun at

eighteen and one-half miles per second. Others who have been privileged to ride in these

Saucers also have been struck by the same sensation of movement—or rather, the almost total

lack of it. But the fact is, with so many wonders crowding my consciousness, it was only later,

after I was back on Earth reviewing the night’s experiences in my own mind, that I could

begin to sort them out.

My attention was now called to the big lens at my feet. An amazing sight met my eyes! We

appeared to be skimming the rooftops of a small town; I could identify objects as though we

were no more than a hundred feet above the ground. It was explained to me that actually we

were a good two miles up and still rising, but this optical device had such magnifying power

that single persons could be picked out and studied, if so desired, even when the craft was

many miles high and out of sight.

“The central pillar or magnetic pole serves a double purpose,” explained my bench

companion. “Besides providing most of the power for flight, it also serves as a powerful

telescope with one end pointing up through the dome to view the sky, and the other pointing

down through the floor to inspect the land below. Images are projected through it into the two

big lenses in the floor and ceiling, as you can see.”

He did not explain whether this was done electronically or by some other means. Its

magnifications could be varied at will, and I suspect that there was more to it than a simple

optical system such as we know on Earth.

I looked up into the translucent dome. The stars had always looked near enough to touch in

the clear air of my mountain home, but viewed through this ceiling lens they seemed to be

actually on top of us. As I alternated between watching the wonders of the sky and the swift

Earth flashing beneath us, I noticed four cables which appeared to run through the floor lens

(or immediately below it), joining the central pole in the form of a cross.

    Make me yours, make me yours, make me yours

    When my lips are touching yours, my love
    Heaven opens up its doors, my love
    Warm and tender soul, warm and tender love
    Lips that you grant me just seem to enchant me
    We kiss and I know I’ve been kissed

    When I’m lost in your embrace, my love
    It’s like flyin’ into space, my love
    Warm and tender soul, warm and tender your
    Arms hold me tightly, they thrill and excite me
    And I’d be a fool to resist you

    The moment you’re near my life can start
    When we’re apart, my life is through
    Each single tingle deep down in my heart
    Just beats for you, beats for you, beats for you!

    With each yearning burning in my soul
    Loving only you will be my goal
    Warm and tender in sweet surrender I
    Offer my lips and I offer my arms and I
    Offer my heart that implores
    Won’t you make me yours?

    Make me yours
    Make me yours

    If you have anything left to give, send it to Carly this weekend via

    http://www.carlyforca.com/

    Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman present a clear choice for the Golden State, a huge turn back to economic growth based on private sector innovation.

    Boxer and Brown are just more of exactly what has mired the state and now the country in deep economic malaise.

    Rarely has a state had so clear a choice with so obvious a set of consequences.

    When Boxer gets desperate, she unleashes Bob Mulholland, one of the most malevolent forces in American politics.

    As soon as the president leaves the state the campaign will go into Bob season. Watch that space.

    But in the meantime, dig deep for Carly.

    Indeed, Jerry also doesn’t seem to understand why film production has fled California. It isn’t about permits, but about tax policy.

    Does any Democrat anywhere in the United States understand that capital and production are mobile?

    Can go anywhere at any time, and will?

    In an interview on my program this week, Meg Whitman pointed to the announcement by Intel that its newest facility will be built in Oregon.

    This is the choice facing California:

    Rebuild the private sector with pro-growth tax policy,

    or dish out tax dollars to favored constituencies while unemployment continues at 12.5%.

    Thune fires up crowd for Senate candidate Buck

    10/15/2010

    http://www.coloradostatesman.com/content/992220-thune-fires-crowd-senate-candidate-buck

    Sounding a decidedly western theme, Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, former Colorado Sen. Bill Armstrong and the event’s headliner, South Dakota Sen. John Thune, embraced Buck and urged supporters to add Buck to their number.

    Barrasso and his wife drove down for the rally.

    “Known as ‘Wyoming’s doctor,’” state Sen. Nancy Spence said, Barrasso “might be able to tell President Obama and some of his ilk a little about health care.”

    “I tell him, but he doesn’t listen!” Barrasso exclaimed from the lawn, delighting the crowd.

    Invoking the Code of the West

    — a list of rules adopted by the Wyoming Legislature, including “start what you finish” and “ride for the brand” —

    Barrasso said Obama and the Democratic Congress has “broken promise after promise after promise” and blamed the opposition for the sour economy and other policies he said were damaging the country.

    “What’s the first step in actually repealing this health care bill?” he asked.

    “The first step starts today with voting in Colorado when we start to vote today to elect Ken Buck to the United States Senate.”

    Claiming that capital denizens are attacking Western jobs and land, Barrasso added,

    “We in the Rocky Mountain West just want to say to Washington: Just leave us alone.”

    When three members of the House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy, wrote a book called Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders, FutureOfCapitalism.com published a 1,200-word review that appeared on the book’s publication date.

    http://www.futureofcapitalism.com/2200/young-guns

    How has the Times handled the book?

    It’s a four sentence book review that manages to be just about 100% wrong.

    The two major efforts to address the availability and cost of health care in the past decade (before ObamaCare), the RomneyCare universal coverage plan in Massachusetts and the Medicare Part D program that President Bush signed into law to help pay for prescription drugs for the elderly, were both Republican initiatives.

    One can find fault with both of these programs, and many have, but to fault Republicans for not acting on health care cost and access seems to ignore these two developments.

    The newspaper does reveal Chris Coons’ deep connections to Gore:

    Coons owns stock in Gore valued at between $1 million and $5 million, according to his personal financial disclosure.

    Part of Coons’ stock was a gift from his mother and stepfather as a teenager, and the rest he earned as an attorney for the company from 1996 to 2004, Coons campaign spokesman Daniel McElhatton said…..

    By the way, his “attorney work” for the company was in the form of a lobbyist, who pushed for, you guessed it, Climate Change legislation:

    In 2003, W.L. Gore Began To Actively Campaign For More Pollution Regulation.

    “In the past, the company avoided talking in public about its position on proposed environmental regulations because it didn’t want the companies that buy its air-cleaning filters to think Gore was trying to tighten standards just so it could sell more pollution control equipment, Coons said.

    Instead the company would go directly to its industrial clients with details about how Gore’s products could help them comply with current rules, or new rules being developed by federal regulators.

    ‘What we haven’t done in the past is said it in front of Congress,’ Coons said.

    Richard A. Bucher, the scientist who testified before the Senate in June, said that two years ago Gore would have declined the invitation of Delaware Sen. Tom Carper to speak publicly at a congressional hearing.”

    ***

    Leader Harry Reid, once enthusiastically described Coons as “my pet”

    (The irony of the “Gore” name has not escaped me. Same old sh*t!!! These people have set themselves up to profit from global warming. I consider myself “Green” but this is nothing but crony capitalism which a few warned us would be Obama’s watch word.)

    Shocker: Obama’s electric car ‘a fraud’
    Vehicle costs $41,000, needs gasoline engine

    ——————————————————————————–
    Posted: October 24, 2010

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=219637

    A $41,000 “all-electric” car heavily hyped by the Obama administration is now being dubbed a “fraud” because it requires gasoline for the driver to get anywhere, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.

    Last summer, General Motors, commonly called “Government Motors” since the Obama administration takeover, unveiled the first of its “Obamamobiles,” the Chevrolet Volt, a compact electric car.

    “At the end of July, Obama allowed himself at a GM plant in Michigan to be photographed looking somewhat nervous and uncomfortable behind the wheel of a production-line model of the Chevy Volt,” Corsi wrote.

    “Now it turns out the GM promotion about the Volt being the first truly all-electric car was just a lot of hype.”

    In an editorial, the daily Wall Street newspaper Investors Business Daily charged GM and the Obama administration with fraud over their promotion of the Volt.

    NPR tunes out debate

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/npr_tunes_out_debate_4kES7mRxG9dolctoKJyX5N

    David Webb, a radio host, African-American — and co-founder of Tea Party 365 — calls the NPR’s blasting of Williams “racism from the left.”

    “Conservative people don’t fear debate,” said Webb.

    “You get a bunch of liberals together, and they’re calling their lawyers to find out whose feelings are being hurt.

    “When they see the color of my skin, they think I’m a liberal.” When they find out differently, “I’m a traitor to my race.

    The idea is that they control the blacks.”

    Scared rabbits at NPR felt they had to make a racial choice between a black man and the Muslim community. They did.

    But who had Williams offended? Nobody asked.

    “I believe many Muslims have the same fear as we try to figure out how to deal with fundamentalism and extremism within our community,”

    said M. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American-Islamic Forum for Democracy.

    He defended Williams after reading his comments in their entirety, something NPR honchos couldn’t be bothered to do.

    “Firing him was extreme,” said Jasser. “He was expressing a sentiment that many Americans feel.

    “These are things we need to be able to discuss.”

    ***

    “The idea is that they control the blacks.”

    “they” meaning elitists on the left who take Black votes for granted.

    The more people of color you have who’re dependent on public assistance, the more you can control them to further your own agenda.

    A session that the winner of this special election to seat Delaware’s next U.S. Senator will be included in.

    Do we, the voters of Delaware, want to send Chris Coons to Washington so that he can have a direct vote on legislation that “WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT HIM”?

    I say no!

    I say we must send Christine O’Donnell to Washington to stave off this sort of backroom dealing and not allow big government and its cronies to steal from the American people.

    Obama/Pelosi/Reid On Every Ballot, and Hannity Tonight

    http://hughhewitt.com/blog/g/eb246242-4e40-45af-afb7-277701c1971c

    Republicans and Independents have already decided to check the president’s wildly destructive ambitions.

    This is the week when rank-and-file Democrats decide that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have hijacked their party and their country and begin to resolve to assist in the repair work.

    Any Republican within striking distance today has a very real shot of winning easily next Tuesday.

    Rarely has any party done more to invite rejection as a party from coast to coast,

    and with not even a hint of repentance and changed thinking,

    every voter has to consider that any vote for any Democrat is a vote for the return of Pelosi and Reid, and two more years of wild government expansion and the economic misery of the past two years.

    It didn’t work. It made things much worse and getting drearier still.

    Time for a real change.

    Obama deficit panel partying like it’s 1986

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2010/10/25/obama-deficit-panel-partying-like-its-1986/

    A few thoughts here:

    1. Lots of this stuff distorts markets, particularly in housing and healthcare. We get too many resources devoted to building McMansions and giving workers gold-plated health plans.

    2. So I am all for reducing/phasing out hundreds of billions in these tax breaks in a 1986-style tax reform bill.

    3. But at the same time, we should be reducing marginal tax rates. The code should be simpler, broader and flatter.

    4. And only by reducing marginal rates, at least somewhat, would such a plan ever pass.

    5. In fact, it took a deep cut in marginal rates to get the 1986 reform done. Individual taxes went down, business taxes went up, though many CEOs didn’t mind so much since the system was simpler.

    6. Take another look at the Wyden-Gregg plan for tax reform, since it may be a model for the panel.

    GLENN: Yeah, yeah. And I think the mayor has been murdered. I mean, you know, the border towns are, they’re just killing everybody.

    Anybody who stands they’ll kill. Do we have this kind of courage? Do we have the kind of courage to stand, to really stand.

    This is what I talked to you about a couple of years ago. I said you’re going to need to know what you believe in and why.

    You’re going to need to know because you’re going to you’re going to be forced to stand at some point.

    Look what’s happening right now. Our schools are under siege. Our churches are under siege. Our monetary system, under siege.

    Our business ethics, under siege. Political system, all of it, all of it. So how do you repair it? The problem is so big, how do you repair it?

    Well, I know this sounds foolish to a lot of people, but first of all, if we’re only getting 40% out of the American people at this time in our history to vote, you got an issue.

    You got a lot you’re going to know how big our problem is.

    If the turnout is 35%, you’re going to know how big our problem is, especially if the races are close.

    If it’s 35% and they’re blowouts, it means that one side stayed home.

    But if it’s close and it’s only 35%, that means only 35% of this population is actively engaged. A republic cannot stand with that. It will not stand.

    It’s We the People.

    And if we don’t have the, not encourage, if we don’t care enough, how do you muster up the courage to stand if you don’t care enough at this point?

    I guess maybe things you know, I keep thinking the American people, this is why a republic they say will always lose to state capitalism, which is what they’re calling communism now in China, state capitalism.

    They say it will always lose because you don’t have a dictator or a strongman at the top telling people you’ve got to move now.

    They have to figure it out on their own and so they’re slow.

    *** But the American people have always come to the defense at the last moment. ***

    I don’t think we’re at the last moment but we’re approaching it. See how many people show up to turn up to vote next week.

    http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2010/10/04/cnns-right-edge-omits-acorns-leftist-ideology-sorba-anti-gay

    Regarding Ryan Sorba

    “The “anti-gay” label applied to both Sorba and Americans for Truth implies they’re driven by bigotry against homosexuals in general,

    when they are actually focused on opposing the agenda of left-wing homosexual activist groups, such as same-sex “marriage” and biased curriculum on homosexuality in public schools.

    Boudreau’s description that Sorba “denounced conservatives for allowing gays to attend” CPAC is also misleading.

    The activist specifically objected to how one organization, GOProud, was invited by CPAC’s organizers to be a co-sponsor and an exhibitor.

    Many other social conservatives also objected to this invite, as GOProud

    endorses the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy forbidding open homosexuals from serving in the military and

    opposes a federal amendment defining marriage as being between one man and woman.”

    ***

    BOUDREAU: He’s one of the speakers, and wants to promote the book he’s writing, ‘The Born Gay Hoax.’

    SORBA: It’s a psychological disorder, and a psychological- and what does psyche mean? Psyche means soul. It’s disorder of the soul- of the nature of man.

    ***

    “they’re driven by bigotry against homosexuals in general”

    Sorba is writing ‘The Born Gay Hoax’ and says homosexuals suffer from a psychological disorder?!

    In my book, he’s a homophobe.

    Jasser is also among those who believe that some 80 percent of mosques in the U.S. are radicalized and part of a Muslim Brotherhood-like effort to impose Sharia, or Islamic law, in the United States.

    He was the narrator for the Clarion Fund’s movie “The Third Jihad” and has a role in Newt Gingrich’s film “America At Risk,” both movies that interpose images of terrorists and threatening music in order to warn of the threat of Islam itself to American law and culture.

    Jasser has told TPMmuckraker that his belief in the threat of Sharia started in college, when he attended prayer services at a mosque and was, he says, appalled to find the imam discussing politics during services.

    http://hughhewitt.com/blog/g/78842ea0-de05-43b1-a687-442d853a8582

    It is specifically targeted at the Tea Party, at the hundreds of thousands who turned out at the Beck-Palin rally in September, and at the millions who sympathized with those marching then.

    The middle this year is decidely anti-Democratic where it was pro-Obama two years ago.

    The center of the political spectrum has shifted, and the left now doesn’t much like its allies of two years ago, and the result is the venom of some and the condescension of others.

    Hollywood is divided between the two reactions, but Stewart’s overt mocking will go a long way to motivating the center-right’s turnout on 11/2.

    *** There is nothing like the contempt of elites to energize anti-elites. ***

    The Tea Party owed its creation to Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

    It owes thanks for a last push towards next week’s victories to all the members of the chattering class

    Obama deficit panel veers dangerously off track

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2010/10/26/obama-deficit-panel-veers-dangerously-off-track/

    Let’s say America axed mortgage-interest deductions, child tax credits and the ability of employees to pay their portion of their health-insurance tab with pretax dollars.

    All these are mentioned in a Wall Street Journal story on Monday.

    Analysis by Americans for Tax Reform finds the net effect would be a $2.4 trillion tax hike over the next five years.

    (Mortgage interest deduction: $638 billion; child tax credit: $60 billion; exclusion for employer-provided health insurance: $1.66 trillion, including higher FICA taxes.)

    Such a fiscal drain would surely put America back into recession, unless marginal tax rates were also lowered to compensate.

    Cutting the total amount of tax expenditures by half might allow the top income tax rate to be cut from 35 percent to 25 percent.

    That is what you want in an ideal, pro-growth tax system: low rates applied to a broad base.

    The politics are treacherous. That’s why major reform hasn’t happened in a generation.

    Back in 1986, Congress agreed to eliminate scores of tax loopholes for individuals.

    But lawmakers wisely sweetened the bitter medicine at the last minute by lowering the top marginal tax rate by nearly half, making those breaks less valuable.

    Many businesses were also willing to accept fewer tax breaks and pay higher total taxes in exchange for a simpler code and a lower rate, although this didn’t make it into the final bill.

    Obama’s panelists should draw on this experience.

    “Let’s say America axed mortgage-interest deductions”

    If Obama and Congress attempt this, they really will have a populist uprising on their hands.

    If Obama tells us again that we won’t be paying higher taxes, no one will believe him.

    Glenn Beck: American Experiment Under Assault

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,602022,00.html

    Do you believe the American experiment has failed and people are not capable of making good choices on their own?

    Or do you believe, if people stop concentrating op their rights and pick up their responsibilities, the Founders’ ideas work and people should have maximum liberty?

    And that Americans are still good, decent people?

    There is a clear choice. But it’s too big of a choice to leave for the fringes on both sides to decide.

    Don’t be duped by the fringes — that’s where the crazies are, that’s where the dangerous people are, the global elites and the anarchists.

    It’s appropriate that this election is happening so close to Halloween, because every day, we are unmasking the villains.

    You are, too, you can see it. It’s all the same people. I started with Richard Trumka and this ad. It’s Richard Trumka. It’s AFL-CIO.

    Do you remember the illegal immigrants going door-to-door for votes in Seattle — I told you about them just a minute ago?

    Well, who organized them? Well, we did the work on this one. No one else did. Strange, isn’t it? It’s OneAmerica.

    If you look at — I am an American — if you look at OneAmerica, who are their sponsors?

    I mean, OneAmerica kind of sounds to me like One Nation. Remember the 10-2-10 rally? Had all those crazy Marxist — yes, funded by Tides.

    It’s weird, because OneAmerica — here we go. Can you bring it in here? Tides Foundation. Oh! UAW.

    Look at all of the — that’s weird, and unions, too. It’s also funded by — oh, the Open Society Institute! That’s George Soros.

    Oh, here’s SEIU. Isn’t that — what are the odds?

    Open Society Institute, most recently gave $100,000 over two years to the group for general support.

    George Soros, is that you?

    America, you just keep seeking the truth and speaking the truth. You be vigilant and you vote. They are unmasking themselves rapidly.

    And as long as you get the word out, there is no place for them to hide.

    By their actions you will know them. And we do have a choice.

    It’s up to you, not the elites, to choose. And the time to choose is a week from tomorrow.

    Justice hearing 1070 appeal has history with deportation

    http://verdenews.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=38951

    There is no way to tell whether any of that will have any effect on how he and two colleagues on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether a trial judge acted properly in enjoining key sections of SB 1070.

    The hearing is set for Monday in San Francisco.

    From a purely political standpoint, the edge goes to Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, who is arguing through her lawyers that Judge Susan Bolton erred in granting the injunction.

    Two of the three judges — Bea and John Noonan — were nominated for the court by Republican presidents; Richard Paez, a former legal aid lawyer, was the choice of Democrat Bill Clinton.

    But their personal backgrounds and philosophies may not help.

    For example, Noonan has tended to side with the federal government in disputes with the states over whose laws prevail, according to Ira Ellman, a professor of law at Arizona State University.

    That could prove significant.

    Much of challenge by the Obama administration to SB 1070 was based on the argument that immigration is solely the province of the federal government and that the Arizona laws illegally intruded into that area.

    Bolton, in her ruling, agreed with many of those points.

    Bea told his story in 2007 in an address to the immigration judges and members of the Board of Immigration Appeals.

    Arizona replaces controversial signs warning residents of illegal drug activity

    http://www.examiner.com/county-political-buzz-in-san-diego/arizona-replaces-controversial-signs-warning-residents-of-illegal-drug-activity

    “Arizona’s BLM decided to change the signs after they created a national hysteria and they decided to temper it,” said America’s toughest Sheriff.

    “What the new signs should read is ‘anyone caught smuggling drugs or humans are going to jail.”

    In an ironic twist, Sheriff Arpaio is in the process of working with BLM to have prisoners in his jails, including illegal aliens, to go into the desert and clean up the trash.

    The new signs went up over the weekend as a result of a Congressional bill that granted $600 million to increase border security measures.

    BLM received a special $200,000 emergency grant to conduct and increase patrols in the southwest portion of Arizona in an effort to saturate the region, according to BLM spokesperson Deborah Stevens.

    The new “temporary signs” are part of BLM’s three-prong approach

    to restore or mitigate the land damaged from illegal alien layup activity,

    construct physical barriers on roadways used by suspected illegal traffickers and

    acknowledge that armed BLM rangers are patrolling the area.

    “We are working with 50 other law enforcement agencies including, tribal, county, Border Patrol, Sheriff’s Departments to secure the region.

    The intel provided to us confirms we are having a positive affect and have seen a decrease in activity,” Stevens explained.

    While that may be true local activists and law enforcement say the summer months typically see fewer human and drug traffickers due to the extreme desert heat,

    plus the high-profile tactic BLM chose only forewarned the bad guys and diverted their activities elsewhere along the border.

    Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu pointed out that;

    “We are three counties deep. How is it that you see pictures (BLM signs) like these? How is that okay?”

    Babeu continues to explain that his department is “outgunned, out manned” and don’t have the resources locally to fight this growing problem.

    Just a hop, skip and jump south to Mexico the cartel murders continue unabated.

    http://www.independent.com/news/2010/oct/26/tom-watson-brings-heavy-artillery/

    McCarthy shared some of his insight with his audience at the Doubletree, suggesting that

    House incumbents are ripe for defeat after their fifth term in Washington after they start losing touch with their constituents,

    a process that is compounded by the attrition of hometown staffers who quit to start their own families and careers.

    If that is true, then Lois Capps, who has served the 23rd district since 2003 (and the 22nd before that) is prime for plucking.

    Watson campaign manager John Van Winkle said that in a poll of voters who know who Watson and Capps are, Watson is ahead by seven percent.

    Deciphering the meaning of that poll would require a poll of how many voters are actually informed, and the results of that poll might be too brutal for any candidate to bear.

    Drain the red ink from the swamp

    Posted on October 18, 2010

    By Paul Ryan

    http://www.biztimes.com/blogs/milwaukee-biz-blog/2010/10/18/drain-the-red-ink-from-the-swamp

    Certified by the Congressional Budget Office, my reform plan fulfills the mission of

    health and retirement security,

    saving Medicare and Social Security;

    lifts the crushing burden of debt,

    paying off the debt completely; and

    restarts the engine of economic growth and limitless prosperity.

    First and foremost, the Roadmap for America’s Future makes no changes to Medicare and Social Security for those 55 and older.

    Those in and near retirement will receive the benefits that they have been promised

    – this is a critical component of entitlement reform and a guarantee that we won’t be able to make unless we take action now.

    For those younger workers, the Roadmap offers gradual, sensible reforms to ensure that future generations have access to these vital programs.

    My plan offers those 54 and younger the same health and retirement benefit options I enjoy as a member of Congress.

    The Congressional Budget Office and the programs’ own actuaries have certified that the Roadmap would make Medicare and Social Security permanently solvent, averting the painful cuts from the unsustainable status quo.

    Economic growth is a prerequisite to getting a grip on our federal budget.

    This is why my plan advances bold reforms to our anti-competitive and needlessly complex tax code.

    Muslims speak out against NPR’s political correctness

    By Caroline May – The Daily Caller | Published: 4:09 PM 10/21/2010

    http://dailycaller.com/2010/10/21/muslims-speak-out-against-nprs-political-correctness/

    Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, told The Daily Caller that though Williams could have been more tactful, his ouster is symptomatic of the problems Americans continue to face when discussing Islam.

    “As much as the way he said it was poorly chosen, the era we find ourselves — of political correctness — we are not able to address what this fear is,” Jasser said. “Anybody that starts talking about this fear gets shut down.”

    [….]

    According to Jasser, the fact that the vast majority of national security threats emanate from the Muslim world makes Williams’ fear reasonable.

    Without open discussion, however, those concerns will never be conquered.

    “I think that ultimately what we find when many thought leaders try to talk about it, [they say] ‘well there are some common elements to those who threaten national security,’ and the only one so far they have been able to nail down is that they come from some form of Islamic theology,’” Jasser said.

    “And because we have not become skilled in discussing theo-political threats, you’re having a lot of these little skirmishes happening.”

    Jasser stressed that he was not defending Williams’ comments, but that the need for discourse trumped compromising to hypersensitivity.

    “I think it is very sad that Juan got fired. But I am not surprised because they have probably been looking for an opportunity to fire him because of all his exposure on Fox, while he is also working at NPR,” he said.

    “So I think they probably exploited the opportunity. I personally don’t think what he said rises to the level of being fired,” Jasser concluded, noting that an apology would suffice.

    (Mr. Williams wasn’t given the opportunity to clarify or qualify his remarks.)

    Health care: Freddy Krueger lives
    By: Sen. Judd Gregg
    October 25, 2010

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1010/44099.html

    We were promised that, if we liked our coverage, we could keep it. But we were misled.

    The Obama administration recently revealed that employees of nearly 70 percent of U.S. businesses, who get coverage through their job, may lose their current health care plan because of the new regulations.

    The outlook is even bleaker for employees of small businesses, the backbone of the U.S. economy.

    Low-wage workers also stand to suffer as onerous new regulations are implemented.

    These workers may lose access to their current benefits because the government will prohibit their employers from offering a plan that is affordable and provides substantive benefits for working families.

    Companies like McDonalds, which help low-income employees with insurance, have put us on notice that they may have to drop coverage.

    Even seniors are at risk.

    The Obama administration announced that nearly one million seniors will lose their current Medicare Advantage plans next year.

    [….]

    The American people have seen through the costume of false promises that conceal the true effects of this far-reaching law, which are likely to haunt us until we reverse course.

    It is my hope that the next Congress consists of members who will pass reforms that responsibly address our health care needs while improving the economy.

    This is what Republicans were calling for in the first place.

    Straight Talk

    Sen. Gregg: Obama ‘Underestimates the Common Sense of the American People’

    This is a rush transcript from “On the Record,” Oct. 27, 2010.

    http://ontherecord.foxnews.mobi/quickPage.html?page=25657&content=44137875&pageNum=-1

    And the American people look at this and they apply their intuitive, natural, good common sense to it, and say this isn’t what I thought it was.

    This isn’t what I was told. I’m not keeping my insurance. My premiums are going up.

    And I’m seeing massive expansion of the government which I know our kids can’t afford, and I didn’t want this.

    VAN SUSTEREN: You say “coy.” Is “deceitful” too harsh?

    GREGG: No. I think there was very honest.

    I don’t think the president or the people around the president in the Democratic Party, the Senate, the center of the Democratic Party in the Senate, which is very far left, by the way.

    It’s not in the center at all, were coy about this at all or deceitful. They said we want a single-payer system.

    We are not going to put it formally in the bill because they knew they couldn’t sell that.

    *** But they did put the mechanisms which drive news that direction. ***

    And now you’ve got people like the secretary of HHS essentially saying if you don’t subscribe to what we’re stealing you, we are going after you, you insurance companies, you corporations.

    And what they want them to do is supply a health care system which is essentially moving us down this road

    towards the government ending up as being the final arbiter on almost anything that has to do with health care or the cost

    and turning the insurance companies into public utilities

    and making it very difficult for the businesses of this country to keep their insurance

    and making it more reasonable if you are a small businessperson especially to say

    I can’t afford to cover you.

    I’m going to send you over to this exchange and pay the penalty

    because I just can’t afford the increase in costs

    which are generated by mandates and massive expansion of regulation.

    (i.e., your employer is going to opt to pay the penalty and dump you. And if you haven’t figured out that that was the plan all along, then there really is something wrong with you.)

    Stanley Kurtz on Barack Obama, the Radical-In-Chief

    http://hughhewitt.com/transcripts.aspx?id=ffbe393d-6cae-4d24-b6dc-f29332fb1c22

    But I want to close by talking about perhaps the antidote here, which is the light you’ve brought to bear on this, may in fact be the disinfectant on the tactics employed.

    They have worked again and again and again, these tactics of the hard left in America, but only when they were not being recognized for what they are.

    And when they are recognized, they don’t work, Stanley.

    SK: I think that’s absolutely true, Hugh.

    I think that the most damaging potential effect of my book on Obama is you could even separate the socialism issue and

    just to know that

    Obama lived in a world where his colleagues and mentors were intentionally secretive about their true political views,

    I think that would truly frighten and alienate some of his supporters if they understood this, and the American public in general.

    And really, the theme of the book is not just what socialism has become, and what community organizing has become,

    *** but a really systematic pattern of deception and secrecy ***

    that runs through Obama’s entire political career.

    HH: And through the water from which he swam all those years is polluted with this secrecy, and with this disingenuousness.

    And so my hat’s off to you.

    And I’m sure historians of the future, Stanley, are going to be thanking you, because

    as long as people are going to be writing about Obama, and it’s going to be a long time,

    they’re going to have to figure out what happened in New York, what happened in Occidental, what happened in those Chicago years which have been airbrushed away.

    And it’s the historian’s job to dig. And you got the trench pretty deep here. And my hat’s off to you.

    I just don’t see this very often, unless it’s about a long ago and far away president.

    SK: Well, that’s my fantasy, Hugh, as a scholar, that it will be taken seriously, far into the future.

    But right now, I’m deeply concerned for what’s going on in America right now.

    And I urgently want to get the information out so that Americans can make an informed decision when they vote.

    HH: I hope everyone listening not only will get the book, but will encourage its notice by everyone in the media, mainstream and otherwise, everyone with a radio show, everyone with a television show.

    Tell them to do their homework, do it in a hurry, because this is a referendum that’s about to happen next Tuesday, Stanley, on these tactics, right?

    This is a centerpiece of the election.

    SK: Absolutely, Hugh, but I do think that while the tactics have put people off,

    when they really understand that there is a true method to the madness, it really will upset them, rightly so, even more than they already are

    to realize that Obama, who advertised himself as a post-partisan pragmatist

    *** is really intentionally polarizing as part of his core political modus operandi *** (And THAT should really piss you off!)

    And that really is the theme of the book, that community organizers present themselves exactly as Obama has presented himself, as a pragmatist beyond ideology.

    *** And yet, they polarize, and that is the core of their strategy. ***

    R-i-C in Depth

    October 28, 2010 9:33 A.M. By Stanley Kurtz

    http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/251298/r-i-c-depth-stanley-kurtz

    Now that my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, has been out for a week or so, some in-depth previews are beginning to emerge.

    Hugh Hewitt read the book thoroughly and had real command of it as he put me through my paces during an hour-long interview yesterday.

    Today on NRO, Kathryn Lopez gives me an opportunity to speak, not only about the historical findings of Radical-in-Chief, but about their relevance to our present political circumstances.

    You can find the Q&A here.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/251245/radical-white-house-interview

    I much look forward to the upcoming publication of the first full-length review of the book in National Review magazine.

    Ron Radosh will do that review, and Radosh responds to a “misguided attack” on Radical-in-Chief here.

    His appearance on Comedy Central also underscores the “presidentialness” gap that the public has in its mind between President Obama and every other one before him.

    “Is he serious?” they ask as they survey 9.6% unemployment, a disastrous rollout of Obamacare, a failed and wasted stimulus and wars that claim American lives?

    Comedy Central 120 hours before an election? He puts his record on the line for piercing examination by a comedian?

    President Obama is fueling the wave.

    Maybe all that training in organizing detailed by Stanley Kurtz included a course in taking a dive when you want an opponent to blame for your failure.

    If the Tea Party Patriots needed any additional reasons to keep up their jet-fueld barnstorming, it is the president’s complete indifference to the issues driving the electorate.

    – Half favor extending the Bush tax cuts for all Americans, including those making $250,000 or more a year, while 40% oppose this.

    – Over half (52%) favor repealing the new health care law that was passed earlier this year, while 38% oppose repealing it.

    Glenn Beck: The Deindustrialization of America

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,602042,00.html

    So, this is just another hybrid. Or is it just another lie from the government and a government-run industry?

    By the way, the same time “Government Motors” is lying to us, Ford, who didn’t take a dime of stimulus money, just posted a profit.

    There is an idea not inspired by our government.

    So, how do these government ideas lift us out of a recession?

    They don’t.

    America, next Tuesday, this is your choice: More of this nonsense that you know doesn’t work or we lower taxes.

    We give businesses incentive to actually reinvest its profits by not doing crazy things in Washington.

    We have them reinvest here. We make the — we make the United States a safe haven for people’s ideas and their money.

    China steals people’s ideas. We can protect them here. You unleash the free-market and you put the law-breakers behind bars.

    This happened in the early 1920s, when government was reduced, taxes were lowered. We went through the exactly the same thing. Boom!

    1940s — happened again after the war. We had cuts followed by an economic boom.

    We can do it.

    We can do that or we can have the biggest tax hike in American history. It will — mark my words — they won’t even vote on it.

    It will expire in the middle of the night while we are all crowded in Times Square counting down the New Year. It will cripple businesses further.

    The choice is clear.

    A homophobe pleads for forgiveness

    Arkansas school board member Clint McCance apologizes and steps down on CNN. But is it enough?

    Hey, I have to tell you. I fully expected to find the Freeper Phobe squad spewing their vitriol on the above story.

    But the usual suspects are strangely silent.

    Now, if we could only convince the vast majority of Americans that the vast majority of homosexuals do not “choose” a lifestyle.

  136. blessedistruth Says:

    World Net Daily obsessed with “sodomy”

    Take ‘pride’ in a death sentence?

    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=220213

    The WWC inadvertently confirmed homosexist sodomy as a death wish.

    Asking, “Are you a man who has sex with men?” the clinic warned, “If so, you should know that 1 in 5 of your prospective partners could be infected with the virus that causes AIDS.”

    Translation? The data find roughly 1 in 5 homosexist males are an HIV, or, if you prefer, AIDS, vector.

    Depending on the data one consults, the average homosexual male has between 50 and 150 sex partners, and many die before age 20.

    Mr. Obama told these confused boys and girls to “reach out to people you trust,” who would tell the child he or she is “gay.”

    Obama’s contention that teen homosexism as “a source of pride and a source of strength” is contraindicated by medial facts – a very short-lived period of “pride” or “strength.”

    Despite our “own versions of happiness,” Livestrong.com, a pro-heterosexual health site, states, “more than 50,000 teens like yourself have contracted HIV and progressed to AIDS.”

    AIDS and early deaths do not inspire “pride” and “strength” since they are candid reflections of abnormal conduct wrecking havoc with the host body.

    AIDS has been transferred via oral sodomy while condoms during anal sodomy is an insider joke, albeit a lethal one (a penetration model increasingly fashionably among copy-cat “straights”).

    Statistically, youngsters who think themselves “gay” can expect to contract scores of STDs and to die young of AIDS.

    This is not “pride” but mass suicide based on how the human body responds to ongoing sodomy.

    (As a society, shouldn’t we be promoting commitment and NOT be promoting promiscuity for all populations?)

    (And while we’re at it, how about promoting life and welcoming ALL children, planned or not.)

    The more they can keep their people down and dependent, the more they stand to profit.

    Dr. Jasser and men like Thomas Sowell are so far past the victimhood that is so pervasive in groups like the NAACP and CAIR.

    It’s refreshing to hear this discourse.

    Only good things can come of this now-open dialogue.

    We cannot assuage our fears of Muslims in traditional garb on airplanes until Muslims themselves begin to admit it’s a Muslim problem and it has to be addressed in their community – fighting the extremists and destroying the theo-political ideology.

    Mark Steyn On Winning Beyond The Margin Of Lawyer

    http://hughhewitt.com/transcripts.aspx?id=9b003d0c-76f1-4ba5-99ea-3fef2322713d

    HH: I look forward to talking with you about it when you have had a chance, because it does explain a great deal about the President’s tactics and approach.

    But since you haven’t read it, we’ll put it off. Let me talk to you about what he had to say this week, but in this context.

    Joy Behar went on the View a couple of times this week and called Sharron Angle a bitch. Today, she apologized for that.

    But it comes in the context of the President urging Spanish language radio station listeners to punish their enemies, and telling Republicans to get to the back of the bus.

    MS: Right.

    HH: And you know, politics ain’t beanbag, Mark Steyn, and you know that, and I know that, and we have fun with people.

    But what about the sanctimonious calls for a return of civility that we’ve been swamped with for the last two years.

    MS: OH, I know, and you know what? The left don’t seem to understand it.

    They don’t seem to understand that their default position now, whatever the issue…initially, it was with health care.

    If you said I’m very concerned about what I hear about wait times for MRI’s in the province of Ontario, the left would respond with racist.

    Effectively, Juan Williams was told he was mentally ill by his boss.

    Joy Behar can think of nothing to say about Sharron Angle’s position on immigration other than to call her a bitch.

    Eventually, eventually, you run out, you lose the ability to argue if you simply insist that anyone who disagrees with you is either a bigot or mentally ill.

    And that’s why the left is losing this election, because they’ve lost the ability to argue.

    They’ve essentially attempted to medicalize dissent by telling themselves that anyone who disagrees with them doesn’t have a policy disagreement, but is some kind of sick, twisted freak.

    And the principal consequence of that is that these Bozos are no longer capable of debate.

    Do you think Joy Behar, I mean, who is the Democratic Party?

    The Democratic Party, the people who are defending the President are people like Joy Behar, Steven Colbert and his joke appearance in front of Congress,

    Al Franken, another washed-up joke who managed to get himself elected to the Senate of the United States.

    If you were the Democratic Party, are these really the people you would want to be your public face, and the public face of your positions to the American people?

    http://hughhewitt.com/transcripts.aspx?id=5d8b5b31-7f4c-4681-9510-d314a2d58d81

    HH: So I just don’t believe these polls.

    But the consequences, Victor Hanson, of California going left, were those polls correct, with a hard left legislature and a left wing governor, looking at a Republican Congress,

    that Congress would simply say collapse.

    VDH: Absolutely. That’s what I’m scared about.

    I think they’re going to say if you guys like high taxes and big deficits, and the lowest reading scores, 49th in the nation, then go ahead.

    Do what you want. We’re not going to bail you out. We’re not going to help you. And I’m worried about that.

    HH: They won’t even give the authority to modify the contracts.

    Honestly, I think as a Californian, you and I probably have the same perspective. We’re on the cliff here.

    VDH: Yeah.

    HH: And if those polls are right, and I don’t believe they’re right, we’re going over.

    VDH: I’m really worried about another factor, and that is Jerry Brown brought the idea that you do not utilize resources.

    We’ve got a billion barrels of oil offshore in Kern County. We’ve got the richest farmland in the world with a million acres idled.

    We’ve got timber, we’ve got all these wonderful resources, natural and manmade, that we’re not drawing on.

    We’re just sort of taking a finite pie and re-slicing the pieces.

    And boy, 3,500 people a week, almost 200,000 a year leaving with incomes estimated over $70,000?

    It’s scary, because I’m here at ground zero south of Fresno, and with a 17% unemployment rate. And it reminds me of the third world.

    It really does. We’re going backwards. It’s like 1945.

    All the things that I grew up with that we were battling, getting dogs licensed, getting mosquito abatement working, getting the roads in good shape, having crossing at railroads.

    All of that’s just starting to dry up.

    “We’re not going to bail you out. We’re not going to help you.”

    States which do not over spend are tired of subsidizing states which do.

    And within states, taxpayers are tired of subsidizing non-taxpayers.

    These state legislatures are piling up debt, growing the public sector at the expense of the private sector.

    Mark Steyn said on Thursday’s program, these elections have got to be beyond “the margin of lawyer.”

    Steyn’s phrase barely edges out P.J. O’Rourke’s

    “This is not an election on November 2. This is a restraining order.”

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/they-hate-our-guts_511739.html

    Democrats hate immigrants. Immigrants can’t stay illegal because illegality puts immigrants outside the legal monopoly on force.

    But immigrants can’t become legal either. They’d prosper and vote Republican.

    Democrats hate America being a world power because world power gives power to the nation instead of to Democrats.

    And Democrats hate the military, of course. Soldiers set a bad example.

    Here are men and women who possess what, if they chose, could be complete control over power.

    Yet they treat power with honor and respect.

    Members of the armed forces fight not to seize power for themselves but to ensure that power can bestow its favors upon all Americans.

    This is not an election on November 2. This is a restraining order. Power has been trapped, abused and exploited by Democrats.

    Go to the ballot box and put an end to this abusive relationship.

    And let’s not hear any nonsense about letting the Democrats off if they promise to get counseling.

    My two cents:

    I think it will be response by voters who think Obama hasn’t done enough to boost the economy and that the stuff he has done has been ineffective and off-point at best, harmful at worst.

    14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ”

    Moses is standing there, the bush is burning, and the bush say, go to pharaoh. He’s like, me? I’m slow in speech. Yes.

    Wait a minute, you’re not missing a gene, are you?

    He says to God, who shall I say sent me? And the answer was, I Am that I Am. I Am that I am.

    First time I read that when I was a kid, I thought that was — I thought that was a horrible Dr. Seuss line. Check the bible.

    I Am — it is always capitalized. That is the name of God. “I Am.”

    I want this segment to haunt you this week. I want you to answer. “I am,” what — fill in the blank. “I Am,” the name of the God.

    Now, let me ask you something — isn’t there a commandment, thou shall not take the Lord thy God’s name in vain? It’s not “God,” it’s “I Am.”

    This is the choice: You can’t do it; you can do it. Why do I say you can do it?

    Because you say, I am worthy, I am strong, I am smart, I am loving, I’m charitable, I’m able, I’m creative, I’m peaceful.

    These are the things “I am.”

    But what does society teach us? I am not worthy, strong, smart, loving, charitable, able, creative, peaceful.

    That’s your choice: I am or I am not.

    I know what my choice is. Now, why does any of this matter?

    Well, because if you are worthy, strong, smart, loving, charitable, able, creative, peaceful — if you are —

    then you are responsible for your own actions. You’re responsible for your own life.

    You’re responsible for your own outcomes, and you find that you are responsible for your brothers and sisters and your neighbors.

    But if you say you’re not capable, you’re not responsible, then you’re just part of a group where no individual really matters, where no individual can control their own destiny.

    I’m not responsible for him because I’m not capable of taking care of him! They have to take care of him and me! That’s the difference.

    This is the secret. They’re teaching you — if this is the name of God, if “I Am” is the name of God, whose name is [I Am Not]?

    Because it’s the exact opposite.

    (I am my brother’s keeper, because I choose to be. It’s sinful for another to deprive me of that choice.)

    LAW OF THE LAND

    Exposed! Soros’ proposal for ‘elite’ judiciary
    ‘How many Elena Kagans and David Souters can America tolerate?’

    “A key player in the emerging battles over state court selections is George Soros. …

    Soros has contributed more than $45 million over the past decade to several dozen special interest advocacy groups affiliated with an umbrella 501(c)(3) organization called Justice at Stake. …

    [which] has as its mission the ‘reform’ of the process for selecting state judges.”

    Gizzi continued, “A principal goal for JAS is to replace judicial elections with a system of ‘merit election.'”

    ‘Voters will never get to reject judges’

    “There are many advocates for ‘merit selection’ of state judges, but wherever you look the hand and purse of George Soros, ‘paymaster of the left,’ is obvious.

    Soros has the resources and the allies.

    If he gets his way, voters in all 50 states will never get to elect, retain or reject their judges,” he warned.

    Islamic Group Asks Army to Deny “Traitor” GI’s Request for Conscientious Objector Status

    September 3rd, 2010

    http://patdollard.com/2010/09/islamic-group-asks-army-to-deny-traitor-gis-request-for-conscientious-objector-status/

    But the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) says Abdo’s claim is patently false.

    “Muslims serve with distinction throughout the United States Military and AIFD sees Abdo’s traitorous public assertions as a slap in the face to all American Muslims especially those Muslims who fight in our armed forces for the liberty and freedom guaranteed by the American Constitution,” the group said in a statement it issued on Friday.

    Said Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, president of AIFD: Abdo’s actions are an affront to every American Muslim who has proudly donned a U.S. military uniform.

    His assertions are not built on Islamic teachings but on a feeble adherence to the global political ideology of Islamism that threatens our security and radicalizes our Muslim youth.

    Abdo said that in addition to conflicting with his religion beliefs, his military duties were also consuming every part of his day and interfering with his religious duties.

    “I knew that if I went to Afghanistan and, God forbid, something were to happen, that my faith was so weak that I wouldn’t be admitted into heaven,” he said.

    But AIFD on Friday called Abdo’s claim a cowardly attempt to use his faith to make a political statement and said it belies the religious experience of the vast majority of Muslim-American troops who have found the time to perform their spiritual rituals.

    The Military has made the application for CO status extremely clear so that soldiers, sailors and marines can not abuse the system and run from their military responsibility, said Jasser, a former lieutenant commander in the United States Navy.

    I think this Gallup chart is pretty stunning, especially when higher economic insecurity was supposed to push Americans toward a greater embrace of government.

    And it did for a bit, but that effect has more than reversed itself:

    “the optimum government theory”

    Still, the president has a long way to go.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/09/obama_the_supplysider.html

    Still, the president has a long way to go.

    While admitting that economic growth is the most important factor to pull individuals out of poverty, he has shown no signs that he actually grasps the concept of how economies grow.

    Therefore, it is appropriate to review the data on the size of government that optimizes economic growth otherwise known as “the optimum government theory.”

    [….]

    The bottom line is that beyond an optimum level necessary for protecting people and property, government spending undermines economic growth by displacing private-sector activity.

    Unlike the private sector, which rewards productivity, the public sector is mired in inefficiency and bogged down in the corruption of the political process.

    The following figure depicts the relationship between government size and economic growth and is referred to as the Armey Curve after professional economist and Republican politician Dick Armey.

    (Click link to see figure.)

    [….]

    … how best can he stimulate economic growth? The answer is relatively simple — decrease the size of government.

    But he gives no indication that he is interested in taking that route, instead favoring policies that tinker around the edges of supply-side economics like short-term tax cuts and targeted subsidies for small businesses, which is why I say he still hasn’t grasped the concept of how economies grow.

    In fairness to the president, the Republicans haven’t shown any particular brilliance in this area either, as tax cuts are not the same as government spending cuts.

    There is only one politician who seems to really get it and is willing to stick his neck out, and that is Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan.

    Ryan’s Roadmap for America’s Future takes bold steps to reduce government spending over the long term by reforming structural entitlements in a meaningful way.

    Of course, Ryan’s solutions won’t be easy to implement, and they certainly won’t be immediately popular, which is why the majority of Republicans aren’t willing to embrace his plan, but perhaps President Obama, since coming to Jesus or Adam Smith or whoever, still might.

    That’s hope and change I can believe in.

    (Very good article, but doesn’t the author of this piece realize there is a radical residing in our White House?!)

    Why midterms could be worse than expected for Dems

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2010/11/01/why-midterms-could-be-worse-than-expected-for-dems/

    Nate Silver speculates on why the GOP tidal wave could actually be a tsunami:

    1) Once voters start pulling the R lever for one race, it will become habit;

    2) Tea Party draws in “unlikely voters” that pollsters are missing;

    3) The notion that undecided voters tend to break against the incumbent;

    4)”Scott Brown Effect” — voters in blue states use this election as a once-in-a-lifetime chance to send an R to Congress;

    5) some likely voter models based on past voting histories are overrating the propensity of Democrats to vote.

    Audio: Ingraham blasts Politico reporter for “gossip” piece on Palin

    http://hotair.com/archives/2010/11/01/audio-ingraham-blasts-politico-reporter-for-gossip-piece-on-palin/

    Update: Guy Benson is similarly unimpressed:

    Whether Sarah Palin decides to run for president in 2012 is a gargantuan irrelevancy on November 1st, 2010.

    Even if the “Republican establishment” really is conspiring to deny her the party’s presidential nomination 21 months from now, that’s an issue that can be dealt with at a later date.

    Hell, if we really want to, we could even commence the discussion on Wednesday. But for right now, let’s refuse to take the bait.

    Every single Republican referenced in the article

    — from Palin, to Karl Rove, to Tim Pawlenty, to Mitt Romney, to Ed Gillespie, and beyond —

    would concur that the only goal at hand is ensuring an unmistakable and stinging repudiation of the Obama/Pelosi/Reid agenda on November 2nd.

    Let’s keep our eye on the ball and refuse to play along with Politico’s transparent eleventh-hour ploy to divide the Right and depress turnout.

    We can debate 2012 another day.

    Confront or cooperate?

    During his first two years in office, Obama often acted as if he didn’t need a working relationship with congressional Republicans.

    With big Democratic majorities in Congress

    — at their peaks, 60 votes in the Senate and an 81-seat advantage in the House —

    he could court a few moderate Republicans such as Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe in hopes of peeling off a GOP vote or two to block a filibuster or give legislation a bipartisan patina.

    “The president hasn’t had a lot of relations with us,” California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a prospect for a Republican leadership post in the new Congress, said in an interview.

    “He had big Democratic majorities. It didn’t seem as much that they needed us.

    “If we were to win the House,” McCarthy added, “that would be different.”

    Republicans need a net gain of 39 seats in the House to win control.

    A Tale of Three Presidents

    Eight Years

    •Under the Clinton administration Public debt increased by $1.539 Trillion

    •Under the Bush administration Public debt increased by $4.899 Trillion

    less

    10,626,877,048,913

    approx.

    3.042 Trillion (Obama since his inauguration)

    Compared with how much Clinton added in EIGHT YEARS and how much Bush added in EIGHT YEARS.

    And this IS being done intentionally.

    Now think about that. Obama points his accusatory finger at his imaginary “enemies” and blames them for driving the car into the ditch.

    But he wants a VAT tax, so he has to make sure the car stays in the ditch just long enough to scare the you know what out of the American people.
