It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

15 Lies of Liberalism

Liberalism offers up a utopian vision of the world and then invites its practitioners to feel good about themselves for embracing it. Not only does this beautiful fantasy world never come to pass, liberalism fails to address the root causes of the problems it sets out to solve while creating whole new disasters in the process. In other words, it's a never ending circle. There's a problem, liberalism is offered up as the solution, it doesn't work and creates more problems, for which liberalism is offered up as the solution, etc., etc., etc. until you're starving, bankrupt, or your society is tearing itself apart at the seams.

Liberalism says that....

1) ...it's all about choice -- unless you want to choose which gun or lightbulb to use, which school your child will attend, or you’d prefer more freedom and smaller government.

2) ...it cares about the environment, when in practice, not only do liberals like Al Gore live some of the most resource-wasting and ostentatious lifestyles on the planet, but they hurt the environment by blocking environmentally friendly energy production here in favor of energy sources from nations that care little about pollution.

3) ...you can have lots of free government services and somebody else will pay for them. The trillion dollar deficit we're running every year that will have to be paid back says otherwise.

4) ...as long as you use birth control that someone else is forced to pay for, there are no consequences whatsoever to having lots and lots of sex. Meanwhile, more than 50 million children have been killed by their own mothers via abortion and 1 out of every 4 adults in New York City has herpes.

5) .... "government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn." Do you know anyone with crabgrass on his lawn? DO YOU?

6) ...it's all about compassion and taking care of the less fortunate, unless liberals have their own money on the line, in which case they give less to charity than those stingy, greedy, heartless conservatives.

7) ...you shouldn't take your Christian faith seriously, that political correctness matters more than the Bible, and that mocking God has no consequences. Ever heard someone say, “Don't pick fights with people who buy ink by the barrel?” Well, if liberals were smarter, they wouldn't be picking a fight with an omnipotent God who buys lightning bolts by the barrel and has a well earned reputation for getting fed up every once in awhile and dishing out "Old Testament style wrath" on His enemies.

8) ...how much our country spends can be dictated by our wants, as opposed to what we can afford. Of course, if the world really works this way, Greece would be fine, nobody would have ever heard of the word "bankruptcy," and the banks wouldn't even bother to write down your name when you borrow money from them.

9) ...liberals want unity and bipartisanship, which they apparently believe they can accomplish by spewing pure hatred and smearing, demonizing, threatening, and lying about anyone who disagrees with them.

10) ...it’s going to deliver equality of outcomes for everyone, which is true, if by "delivering equality of outcomes" you mean "make everyone poorer."

11) ...it cares about women -- unless they're conservative women, in which case liberals will insult them in the vilest of terms, attack their children, call them ****s and laugh and hoot at the most grotesque sexist attacks against them. Every last insult ever hurled at someone like Sandra Fluke probably wouldn't amount to what women like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Michelle Malkin, and Ann Coulter put up with on any given week with the full support of the same liberals who run off at the mouth about a "war on women."

12) ....it'll help the poor -- and it does. Liberalism helps poor Americans live in ghettos with just enough food and money to survive so they can stay dependent on liberals. It's the same sort of help a farmer gives a chicken while he harvests its eggs and waits for the right time to wring its neck and toss it in the frying pan.

13) ...liberals are the only people who care about black Americans and want to help, which doesn't seem to square with the fact that just about anywhere and everywhere liberals have been in charge for decades, like Detroit or New Orleans, most black Americans are in dire straits.

14) ...small business owners were able to build their businesses because they were lucky. But of course, if that's true, why do we have such a high unemployment rate? Why doesn't everyone who loses his job just set up his business and grab that easy money? Since bankers don't deserve the big salaries they make, why doesn't the Occupy movement set up its own bank and show the "banksters" how it's done?

15) ...you can fix crime by taking away guns, but by definition, the people who will voluntarily give up guns are law abiding citizens who have no intention of committing a crime in the first place. Besides, if that can work, why doesn't Barack Obama set the example by asking his Secret Service agents to disarm?

The Bizzaro World of Liberal 'Science'

Generally speaking, liberals in America espouse the belief that science is great and that it endorses liberalism. They also attempt to cast conservatives as ignorant savages whose beliefs are similar to Cro-Magnon pagans.

The reality is that when it comes to science it is liberals who live in a bizarro world.

Let's look at a few examples.

Science has conclusively demonstrated that at conception a new human being with uniquely human DNA is formed. At conception, the entire biological identity of a person is established -- their gender, their hair color, their skin tone, etc.

Yet liberals constantly refer to the unborn as "blobs of tissue" or "a part of the woman's body". The latter statement is also directly refuted by science.

Modern medical science has discovered that one of the key reasons for the umbilical cord is to ensure that the mother's immune system can't get to her unborn daughter. At the most fundamental biological level the mother's immune system, which decides what is self and what is not self, recognizes a woman's daughter as not self.

But liberals ignore the clear scientific data that human life begins at conception in order to continue to advocate the legalized killing of some humans who are declared, in direct contradiction to the clear scientific evidence, to be not human solely because of their age.

Then there's so called global warming, now renamed to climate change. Irrespective of who is right or wrong about global warming -- the alarmists or the sane people, no bias here -- the way liberals treat the debate shows their complete lack of understanding about how science works.

Science is science because of experiments. If you can't define a repeatable experiment that can either prove or falsify a theory all you have is a theory; and theories are just smart men thinking and we all know how off course smart men can go. As such it doesn't matter how many, or few, scientists believe something is true. All that matters is what does the experimental data show.

We've seen cases where the entire scientific community, except for one dissenter, was wrong. Back in 1912 Alfred Wegener presented his theory of continental drift to the scientific community. Everyone said he was wrong. Fast forward to the 1960s when new data showed he was right. Even though he was one scientist out of thousands from 1912 to the 1960s he was right and they were wrong.

Yet liberals are always declaring that global warming must be real because the "majority" of scientists support it.

This is symptomatic of a typical liberal problem; contrary to their belief truth is not defined by a vote, or by who is in power.

Then there's the whole homosexuality thing. To date no study has shown that being gay is genetic; to do that it would be necessary to show that twins separated at birth both tended to turn out homosexual but the tiny fraction of homosexuals in the population makes it impossible to find a statistically viable sample of separated homosexual twins.

On the other hand, studies do show a good correlation between a missing or weak father figure early in a boys life and eventual homosexual behavior. The success of reparative therapy on many homosexuals also indicates that being gay is not like being black; ignoring the fact that one's race is not a moral issue since all races are morally equal -- it is how one behaves that defines one's quality as a person.

Yet in spite of this evidence liberals insist on declaring that God made homosexuals gay. Irrespective of one's moral beliefs (is active homosexuality right or is it wrong), ignoring science and saying that homosexuals are trapped by their biology does a disservice to both gays and public discourse.

Liberals seem to ignore the fact that morality of something is independent of its genetic component. If it were to be found that some gene is common in men who **** women, it would not make **** an okay thing. Hence even if homosexuality is genetic, it can still be morally wrong; after all, genetically speaking, most men have a tendency to be promiscuous but that doesn't mean cheating on your wife is okay.

On a related note remember when liberals were telling us that science predicted a heterosexual AIDS epidemic was just around the corner? Of course, over 30 years later there is no heterosexual AIDS epidemic in America.

Doctors originally called AIDS GRIDS, Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome, because only gays contracted it. Liberal outcries forced the change to the more neutral name. Ignoring the medical data, liberals told Americans that we must spend a fortune to cure AIDS because everyone might soon die of it. Another example of a common liberal meme; pseudoscience reveals a problem so you must spend tons of taxpayer money to fix it.

Liberals also told us that science says that condoms would protect us from AIDS, and pretty much all other STDs. Anyone who took a sex-ed class in pre-AIDS America would be shocked by that, since they were taught that condoms were a joke because they failed so often. Science has shown that condoms will reduce the chance of catching AIDS for each time someone has sex with an infected partner -- assuming they don't fail. But if as a result of falsely believing that condoms are failsafe an individual has sex with an infected partner multiple times he will get AIDS; condoms can only delay the inevitable. Liberals ignore this bit of scientific data because they want consequence-free sex. Sadly, many people have either died or now need lifelong medical treatment because they've contracted AIDS after listening to this bit of liberal pseudoscience.

There are also examples from the "soft sciences" such as sociology. Generally speaking, unlike physics, chemistry, and the other hard sciences, the soft sciences are those in which controlled experiments are either hard or impossible to construct. For example, sociologists can compare drug users to non-drug users and see what factors -- such as parental drug use -- seem correlated with using drugs. But they can't take a drug user back to his childhood and raise him up again with different circumstances in order to see if their theory is right. As such, truth is always less clear in the soft sciences; but that doesn't mean that it is absent.

On the issue of gun control, studies have shown that there is good reason to believe that armed crimes are reduced when the potential victims are armed. This appears rational when one considers that occupied houses are rarely broken into in America, where a reasonable fraction of homeowners have guns, but occupied houses are often burgled in England where the criminals know that the homeowners will be unarmed.

Yet liberals continue to insist, in direct contradiction to sociological studies, that guns, not people, are the problem.

Decades of scientific studies have shown that women and men are different. Yet liberals insist on ignoring those results and declaring that women can be just as good as fireman or infantry soldiers as men. Now there are some women who would be better firemen than a lot of out-of-shape guys. The problem arises when liberals insist on defining different job fitness criteria for woman than for men even though those same liberals say women can do the exact same job as men.

Keep this in mind when you hear some liberal invoking science with more fervor than a revivalist minister invoking Jesus. Unlike the minister, who has probably at least studied the Bible, liberals will invoke science they don't understand and declare fiction to be fact so long as it seems to support their political position.

Obama's Definition of 'Liberty'

Oh, how far-removed we are from what now seems like the "innocent" Bill Clinton days when all we had to worry about was the various definitions of the word "is". And now, after watching President Obama's second term inaugural address, it is clear we have a president who calls into question the meaning of the word "liberty."

It is incomprehensible that this former constitutional lawyer would argue during his speech that America has evolved to the extent "our founding documents" no longer require us to "define liberty in exactly the same way." But then again, it's not so far-fetched considering what he's done so far as well as the radicals he's wrapped his life around. Some in the mainstream media have pondered if compromising with Republicans will be part of his second term agenda, but based on his address, the short answer is "no." Put on your seat-belts; we're headed for four more years of divide and conquer politics. The carnage will be immense, considering the majority of Americans are not far-left radicals.

Clearly, our founders defined liberty as the right of individuals to pursue their own interests with minimal interference from a limited government. To suggest otherwise either shows a lack of understanding of America's founding principles or a disregard for the same. Obama seems intent on widening the already colossal ideological divide.

And herein lies the complexity of a community organizer turned president: his ideology contradicts the constitution he is sworn to uphold.

If the ultimate goal is to shake up, tear down, and fundamentally transform America into the collectivist society Obama's honey-filled words dripped of, he will do so without the support of half the country. As the rest of us find ourselves scratching our heads trying to figure out where the constitutional authority exists to achieve this transformation, Obama moves forward, motivated by a ludicrous notion that the Constitution must change because times have.

Obama's inaugural speech words echoed similar thoughts from his book, "The Audacity of Hope," suggesting the Constitution "is not a static but rather a living document, and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world."

At least he is consistent. On WBEZ-FM, Chicago, 12 years ago, making a case for wealth redistribution and social justice, suggesting it would be found in what the Constitution did not say. Citing a previous court case, Obama said, "the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties" mandating "what the states can't do to you" and "what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf."

And he's lived in the gray ever since. Black and white have given way to ever-expanding shades of gray so much that listening to a policy speech from the president requires an interpreter. The inaugural speech was replete with duplicitous and eerily conservative phrasing like "equality" to conceal wealth redistribution and "safety" in "the quiet lanes of Newtown" to mask expanded gun control.

It might be time for citizens to grasp an understanding of what our founders meant when they wrote and spoke about liberty. Let me leave you with former congressman Ron Paul's definition: "Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks...Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety...Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen, and a false government security blanket beckons."

I still believe. How about you?

22 Signs That Barack Obama Is Transforming America Into A Larger Version Of North Korea


If there is one country in the world that you would not want to live in, it would be North Korea.  Unfortunately, the United States of America is becoming more like North Korea with each passing day.  North Korea is a totalitarian police state hellhole where the state rules supreme, the “leader” is lavishly worshipped, no dissent is tolerated, and the government micromanages everything.  America is supposed to be the opposite of that, but now Barack Obama is implementing his version of “change” and he has promised to engage in the “remaking” of this nation and to transform it “brick by brick“.  A tremendous “cult of personality” has been built up around Obama, and under his leadership the U.S. government has become larger and more repressive than ever before.  But do we really want to “change” America so that it more closely resembles totalitarian regimes such as North Korea, communist China, the Soviet Union and **** Germany?  After all, all of those regimes have a nightmarish history of brutality and death.  Even today, there are starving North Koreans that are eating their own children.  Is that really where we want to end up as a nation?

The truth is that we desperately need to take America in the opposite direction of where Barack Obama is trying to take us.  We need a much smaller federal government, a much greater emphasis on freedom and liberty, a return to true free market capitalism, and politicians that are willing to take a low profile and that are actually there to serve the American people.

But what we need and what we are getting are two very different things.

The following are 22 signs that Barack Obama is transforming America into a larger version of North Korea…

#1 Obama has appointed numerous socialists and communists to important positions in his administration.  The following are just a few examples that were highlighted in a recent article by John Perazzo…

Obama named Van Jones, a longtime revolutionary communist who famously declared that “we [are] gonna change the whole [economic] system,” as his “green jobs czar” in 2009; he appointed Carol Browner, a former “commissioner” of the Socialist International, as his “environment czar”; he appointed John Holdren, who not only views capitalism as a system that is inherently destructive of the environment, but strongly favors the redistribution of wealth, both within the U.S. and across international borders, as his “science czar”;
he named Hilda Solis, a former officer of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (the socialist wing of the House of Representatives), as his labor secretary; and he chose Anita Dunn, a woman who has cited Mao Ze D0ng as one of her “favorite political philosophers,” to serve as White House communications director.

#2 As Paul Roderick Gregory demonstrated in an outstanding article for Forbes, Barack Obama’s economic agenda matches the November 2011 Declaration of Principles of the Party of European Socialists almost point for point.

#3 If a totalitarian regime is going to be successful, it needs a massive government bureaucracy to run things.  Today, the number of employees of the federal government is roughly equivalent to the entire population of the United States in 1776.

#4 In North Korea, dissent is brutally repressed.  In the United States, we have continued to move rapidly in that direction under Barack Obama.  In a recent article entitled “Obama’s War On Whistleblowers“, author Stephen Lendman wrote the following…

He said one thing. He did another. As president, he usurped diktat powers. He wages war on truth. He targets whistleblowers. He prioritizes surveillance powers.

They include warrantless wiretapping, accessing personal records, monitoring financial transactions, and tracking emails, Internet and cell phone use. It’s done lawlessly to gather secret evidence for prosecutions.

In his book “Necessary Secrets,” Gabriel Schoenfeld said he “presided over the most draconian crackdown on leaks in our history – even more so than Nixon.”

Rhetorically he supports civil liberties and transparency. “Such acts of courage and patriotism….should be encouraged rather than stifled,” he said.

At the same time, he betrayed the public trust. He targets free expression and dissent. He pursues police state prosecutions and intimidation.

He claims Justice Department immunity from illegal spying suits. He exceeds the worst of all previous administrations.

His national security state targets activists, political dissidents, anti-war protestors, Muslims, Latino immigrants, lawyers who defend them, whistleblowers, and investigative journalists.

Law Professor Jack Balkin expressed alarm, saying:

“We are witnessing the bipartisan normalization and legitimation of a national surveillance state.” Obama exceeded the worst of George Bush.

#5 Under Obama, the United States has been developing “Big Brother” surveillance technologies that dictators of the past never even dreamed were possible.  For example, a very highly sophisticated surveillance grid known as “Trapwire” is being installed in major cities and at “high value targets” all over the country.  Sadly, the mainstream media has not covered this at all, and most Americans still do not even realize that it exists.

#6 Under Obama, unmanned aerial vehicles are not just used for war anymore.  Police departments are now starting to deploy surveillance drones in the skies over their cities all over the nation.  In fact, this is something that the federal government is greatly encouraging.

#7 It was the Obama administration that came up with the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.  Now the federal government has even created an iPhone app that is designed to encourage all of us to take photos of “suspicious activity” and report our neighbors to the authorities.

#8 It was the Obama administration that first instituted “enhanced pat-downs” by TSA thugs at our airports.  As a result, countless numbers of men, women and children have had horrific experiences that they will remember for the rest of their lives.  You can read some of their horror stories right here.

#9 The U.S. military now has the authority to arrest American citizens and hold them indefinitely without trial.  The Obama administration has no problem with this horrible abuse of power.

#10 A key Obama ally in the U.S House of Representatives, Congressman José Serrano of New York, has introduced a measure that would repeal the 22nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution so that Barack Obama can continue to run for additional terms as president after his second term ends.

#11 The “cult of personality” that has built up around Barack Obama is getting quite ridiculous.  Shortly after he won the recent election, actor Jamie Foxx referred to Barack Obama as “our Lord and Savior Barack Obama” during a television broadcast of the 2012 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Such “leader worship” would fit in very well in North Korea.

#12 Since Obama won in November, there has been an increasing number of incidences in which Obama has been referred to in religious terms.  For example, a recent Newsweek article referred to Barack Obama’s second term as “The Second Coming“.

#13 A painting by artist Michael D’Antuono that is now on display at Boston’s Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery recently made headlines all over the United States.  In the painting, Barack Obama is wearing a crown of thorns on his head and his arms are stretched out as if he was being crucified.  In the background of the painting is the presidential seal…

#14 Relentless praise from the mainstream media played a huge role in each of Obama’s election victories.  The mainstream media is supposed to be objective, but there have been reports of members of the media “swooning” in his presence, and most mainstream news broadcasts leave little doubt that Obama is the “good guy” and anyone opposed to him is the “bad guy”.

#15 The Obama organization has tirelessly gathered data on potential voters.  At this point, the amount of information that the Obama campaign has compiled on the American people is absolutely frightening…

If you voted this election season, President Obama almost certainly has a file on you. His vast campaign database includes information on voters’ magazine subscriptions, car registrations, housing values and hunting licenses, along with scores estimating how likely they were to cast ballots for his reelection.

#16 The Communist Party USA is cheering on Barack Obama’s efforts to disarm the American people.  According to one of their official publications, “the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gun violence is a fundamental democratic right — one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rights allegedly contained in the Second Amendment.”

#17 Under Obama, the federal government is intruding in our personal lives like never before.  The following example is from a recent RT article…

Smokers, beware: tobacco penalties under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act could subject millions of smokers to fees costing thousands of dollars, making healthcare more expensive for them than Americans with other unhealthy habits.

The Affordable Care Act, which critics have also called “Obamacare”, could subject smokers to premiums that are 50 percent higher than usual, starting next Jan 1. Health insurers will be allowed to charge smokers penalties that overweight Americans or those with other health conditions would not be subjected to.

A 60-year-old smoker could pay penalties as high as $5,100, in addition to the premiums, the Associated Press reports. A 55-year-old smoker’s penalty could reach $4,250. The older a smoker is, the higher the penalty will be.

#18 Just as in North Korea, our lives are being increasingly micromanaged by a government that is packed with control freaks.  At this point they even are telling us what kind of light bulbs we are allowed to buy.

#19 Federal agencies have become increasingly brutal under Obama.  For example, if you milk your cow and sell some of that milk to your neighbor next door, you could end up having your home raided by federal agents.

#20 Obama has gone to great lengths to demonize his opposition.  Since he has been president, numerous government papers, studies and reports have been released that identify groups of people that are opposed to Obama as “potential terrorists”.  Some of the groups targeted as “potential terrorists” include those that “revere individual liberty”, “conspiracy theorists”, “returning veterans”, anti-abortion activists, those that visit “extremist websites”, those that are “fiercely nationalistic”, those that “believe in the right to bear arms”, anyone that is opposed to illegal immigration, anyone that is anti-UN, and anyone that is “suspicious of centralized federal authority”.  For much more on this, please see this article.

#21 Obama’s abuse of power is not just limited to the United States.  The truth is that he has increasingly been acting like some type of imperial ruler that gets to tell everyone else in the world what they are supposed to do.  For example, according to a recent WND article Obama has actually promised to give eastern Jerusalem to the Palestinians even though Israel has already said that they will agree to no such thing…

Now that he has secured his second term, President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations, a top Palestinian Authority negotiator told WND.

The negotiator said top members of the Obama administration told the Palestinians the U.S. president will renew talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state in the so-called 1967 borders – meaning in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and, notably, eastern Jerusalem.

#22 Many Obama supporters are becoming enamored with the idea that we should either start ignoring the Constitution or that we should get rid of it entirely.  For example, Georgetown law professor Louis Michael Seidman recently appeared on CBS and said the following to the American people…

“I’ve got a simple idea: Let’s give up on the Constitution. I know, it sounds radical, but it’s really not.”
Hey, if we got rid of the pesky Constitution, we could have a dictatorship just like North Korea does!

Barack Obama could be our king, our lord and our savior for decades!

Of course I am being sarcastic, but this is the kind of dangerous thinking that leads to tyranny.

Let us learn the hard lessons that history has tried to teach us.  We don’t want to go down the same path that North Korea, **** Germany, the Soviet Union, and communist China have traveled.

There is an absolutely amazing National Geographic documentary that shows what life is like inside North Korea.  You can view it on YouTube right here.  We don’t want our children and our grandchildren to someday live in a nation like that.

Freedom and liberty are precious things.  They are very hard to win, and they are very easy to lose.

Let us not be the generation that loses everything that our forefathers worked so hard to build.

Obama named Van Jones, a longtime revolutionary communist who famously declared that “we [are] gonna change the whole [economic] system,” as his “green jobs czar” in 2009; he appointed Carol Browner, a former “commissioner” of the Socialist International, as his “environment czar”; he appointed John Holdren, who not only views capitalism as a system that is inherently destructive of the environment, but strongly favors the redistribution of wealth, both within the U.S. and across international borders, as his “science czar”;
he named Hilda Solis, a former officer of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (the socialist wing of the House of Representatives), as his labor secretary; and he chose Anita Dunn, a woman who has cited Mao Ze D0ng as one of her “favorite political philosophers,” to serve as White House communications director.

Wasn't Van Jones the same guy whom the PPF mods like Sane, JT, Geo, etc puffed up as some "9/11 truther hero" over 3 years ago?

Only vaguely remember, but if memory serves the majority of PPF bought into what Sane tried to promote. Sane also promoted Sarah Palin and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow as anti-NWO heros as well. So go figure.

Yeah, that didn't last though, as Van Jones showed his true colors and most saw him for the socialist that he is. I think he just spouted some "truth movement" jargon to get people's attention. I remember trying to tell people he was a thug from the start, but like Mark says, they didn't want to hear it because at the time he was talking 9/11 conspiracy stuff.

Certain members at PPF also tried to promote that nutcase Chavez too as some hero of the people that allegedly thumbs his nose at the NWO. He has proven his socialist attitude as well. He even tried to get himself made leader for life.

Liberals can't even just admit, when one of their own is lying. Or that it even matters. A lie is when you deliberately not tell the truth or mislead.

Bill Maher Calls Out Debbie Wasserman Schultz Over Obamacare: ‘To Me, That Is a Lie’

Far-left comedian Bill Maher has consistently admitted that President Barack Obama “lied” when he promised all Americans they would be able to keep their health insurance plans under Obamacare. Others, however, like DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, are apparently not quite ready to admit it.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz She can make Stalin look like a nice guy...

The two found themselves at odds on HBO’s “Real Time” on Friday as they battled over whether it truly was a “lie.”
 
“It was a bad week for the president, let’s be honest here,” Maher began. “We’re not like them, we don’t live in the bubble. It was a bad week.”
 
He also asked his panel whether or not a lie is ever “justified” if it’s for something good, and then speculated as to whether Obamacare would have even passed if the president had been honest about the impact it would have on private insurance.
 
Wasserman Schultz quickly insisted the president didn’t lie.
 
“It was not a lie, let’s just be very clear,” she said. “When the president and myself and every other Democrat talked about that if you like your health care you can keep it, that was referring to the overwhelming majority of Americans who had health care…and in fact, what the reality of Obamacare is, not only are they able to keep their health care, but it is very likely going to cost less and have better benefits.”
 
“Some people can’t,” Maher shot back. “Come on, let’s be honest. Obamacare says basically if you have a really crappy plan, you can’t keep it. That’s the truth.”
 
He wondered aloud why people would want a “crap” plan, but said the truth is that Obamacare is forcing people off of their plans.
 
“To me, that is a lie,” Maher added.

Movie director Rob Reiner chimed in and said it doesn’t matter if it was a lie or not and went on a rant about the complexities of Obamacare made worse by Republican opposition.
 
Later in the discussion, Maher argued the Obamacare lie is Obama’s “no new taxes” moment and a “campaign pledge that didn’t hold up to the complexities of governing.”

Not that I endorse Maher, but I remember when he correctly pointed out how Obama is NOT a Christian.

Luke 16:8  And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

"Overblown Controversy’: NY Times Editorial Board Says Obama Only ‘Misspoke’ About Keeping Health Plans

 Huh

The New York Times published an editorial Sunday dismissing President Barack Obama’s broken promise of allowing all Americans to keep their current health plans as an “overblown controversy” and said he simply “misspoke.”
 
“Congressional Republicans have stoked consumer fears and confusion with charges that the health care reform law is causing insurers to cancel existing policies and will force many people to pay substantially higher premiums next year for coverage they don’t want,” the editorial said. “That, they say, violates President Obama’s pledge that if you like the insurance you have, you can keep it.”
 
“Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that,” the editorial board concluded.

No, he deliberately LIED about it, just like you’re doing now

A report published by NBC News earlier this week said the Obama administration knew for at least three years that millions of Americans would not be able to keep their current health plans under the Affordable Care Act.
 
The New York Times, widely considered to be the U.S.’ paper of record, also conceded that premiums will most likely rise as the Affordable Care Act is implemented.
 
“[P]remiums may well rise, in part because insurance companies must accept all applicants, not just the healthy,” the paper said, adding prices “will likely go up for younger, healthier patients.”
 
“Many higher-income people who won’t qualify for subsidies, however, will have to buy policies providing more benefits than they want,” the paper continued. “Maternity care for those who will not have children is one sore point. But that is one price of moving toward universal coverage with comprehensive benefits.”

When Being Called ‘Evil’ Is a Kindness

Princeton University was founded in 1746 by devoutly Christian men with a devoutly Christian mission. It has “evolved” into a fortress of secular-“progressivism,” presently employing people like Bio- “Ethics” professor Peter Singer.
 
Whereas Princeton’s crest and motto yet declare: “Dei sub numine viget,” Latin for “Under God she flourishes,” the university, even still, permits Singer to teach young minds full of mush that it’s perfectly ethical for parents to kill their babies within a one month period after birth.
 
Please understand, I don’t mean to pick on Princeton. I only single-out this once-godly institution for purposes of illustration. Even today there are, no doubt, many good, God-fearing men and women among Princeton’s student body, faculty, staff and alumni.
 
To be sure, I might just as easily have spotlighted Harvard, Yale, Oxford or any among dozens of formerly Christian universities that, over time – and beneath the erosive slow-drip temptation to “conform to the pattern of this world” – have tragically abandoned their founding vision to train-up men and women who would “go into all the world” and champion the cause of Christ.
 
While such institutions of higher learning once derived their moral compass from a decidedly biblical worldview, today they aggressively foster principles that are decidedly counter-biblical (i.e., secularism, sexual relativism, a “pro-choice” culture of death, et al.).
 
They’ve lost true north. Their once-seaworthy biblical scholarship and worldview have become capsized. Their once-biblical code of belief has become counter-biblical dogma.
 
There is, mind you, another, more pointed term for “counter-biblical” and it is this: “evil.”
 
Scripture has much to say about the wide, “progressive” path away from truth and toward evil: “If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit,’ and, ‘A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud’” (2 Peter 2:20-22).
 
Scripture also admonishes, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20). So-called “progressives” frequently call me evil. They also call me, among other things, irreverent.
 
I appreciate that.

Since, by its very nature, one’s adherence to secular-”progressivism” qualifies one as among “those who call evil good, and good evil” – and since “progressivism” reveres that which God calls evil – to call me both “evil” and “irreverent” is to do me a kindness.
 
Indeed, due to my very direct and sometimes Swiftian approach to speaking biblical truth to our culture, many on the left have also called me hateful, uncivil, offensive, sarcastic and a litany of other colorful adjectives not fit for print.
 
To which I again say, thank you very much.

I don’t share this to boast, as I am certainly none too righteous. I second Paul’s declaration that “I am the worst sinner of all,” but only share this for illustrative purposes.
 
Jesus tells us: “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. …” (John 15:18-20)
 
For Christians, those times when the right people call us the wrong things are among those times we should “rejoice in our sufferings.”
 
Jesus commands His followers to be His hands and feet – to be salt and light in a rotting world that loves darkness (Matthew 5:13-16).
 
While it is true that salt preserves; in an open wound, it also burns. Today’s relativist culture is an open wound.
 
While it is true that light’s bright glare can be illuminating to those eager to see, light’s bright glare is also blinding to those whose eyes have become adjusted to darkness.
 
When the light of Christ is shined, it sends lovers of evil scurrying for the shadows.
 
For this reason, Christ also warned, “You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22).
 
There are, generally speaking, two kinds of sin. There are sins of commission and there are sins of omission. From my perspective – and I think it’s the biblical perspective – we Christians commit a sin of omission if we remain passive as our culture becomes “given over to a reprobate mind.”
 
When we seek to be loved by the world – when we follow the Princeton model and take the wide path to “mainstream” acceptance – we abdicate our duty to “fight the good fight.”
 
For the time has come of which Paul warned “when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry” (2 Timothy 4:1-7).
 
Indeed, we are in a spiritual war for our culture. It is a war between good and evil, and surrender is not an option. When we disengage from this “culture war,” we have effectively surrendered and, again, from my perspective, we have sinned.
 
So put on the armor of God, Christian pastors, laymen, churches, organizations and universities. Prepare for war.
 
Because to do otherwise is to disobey God. As Matthew 5:13 warns: “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.”
 
I, for one, have no intention of being trampled underfoot. With God’s help, I will “stand firm to the end.”
 
And God only knows when the end will come.

Parent Questions School Indoctrination and Is Labeled a Neo-NAZI

East Pennsboro School District parent, Josh Barry, was accused of possibly being a neo-NAZI for questioning his child’s left-leaning assignment. The accuser, a teacher and the district’s union president asked a mutual Facebook friend of Barry’s whether she thought Barry was a neo-NAZI.

It’s actually much worse than that. The teacher was hoping to dig up dirt on the parent and smear his name but, fortunately for Mr. Barry, she called the wrong person.

I’m surprised they didn’t have him arrested like the parent in Maryland who objected to Common Core.

Barry posted the phone message left by the teacher on YouTube – it’s really quite unbelievable.

Both the teacher and the parent are Jewish.

The parent wants the School Board to dismiss the teacher.

Listen to the YouTube message below:



This is Mr. Barry’s address to the Board. He addresses the rampant school indoctrination and the tactics that were being used to ruin him, particularly by union leaders. It is well worth listening to after a short ad, click her or listen below:: http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2013/11/east_pennsboro_area_school_dis_15.html

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich is Racist, Says Portland School Official

Did you know that eating or even talking about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich could be considered racist?

That’s right.

Apparently, it’s because people in some cultures don’t eat sandwich bread. Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School in Portland explained to the Portland Tribune:

“Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year,” the Tribune said.

“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” Gutierrez asked. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”

…The Tribune noted that the school started the new year with “intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives,” to help educators understand their own “white privilege,” in order to “change their teaching practices to boost minority students’ performance.”"Last Wednesday, the first day of the school year for staff, for example, the first item of business for teachers at Scott School was to have a Courageous Conversation — to examine a news article and discuss the ‘white privilege’ it conveys,” the Tribune added.

Gutierrez completed a week-long seminar called “Coaching for Educational Equity,” a program the Tribune says focuses “on race and how it affects life.” She also serves on an administrative committee that focuses on systematic racism.

“Our focus school and our Superintendent’s mandate that we improve education for students of color, particularly Black and Brown boys, will provide us with many opportunities to use the protocols of Courageous Conversations in data teams, team meetings, staff meetings, and conversations amongst one another,” she said in a letter to staff.

You can read more about principal Gutierrez’s sandwich-sensitivity philosophy here.

Next time you’re in the bread aisle at the grocery store, you may want to think twice. Sensitive liberal educators are now recommending the torta or the pita as a more culturally inclusive alternative.

Now that we’ve been made aware of the evil of PB&J, there’s only one question left to answer: Is white bread more racist than whole wheat?

Liberals Literally Think Conservatives Belong in a Mental Institution

During the reign of Communist oppression in the late and unlamented Soviet Union, dissenters routinely were put in mental hospitals. Whether human rights activists or religious believers, thousands of men and women were shoved into psychiatric facilities, where they were treated with heavy doses of drugs in order to render them innocuous to the Marxists in the Kremlin.

As described by University of Virginia law professor Richard J. Bonnie, psychiatric abuse is "the deployment of medicine as an instrument of repression" and was extensive in the Soviet regime: "When the Soviet Union was defending its suppression of political and religious dissent, it steadfastly denied allegations of psychiatric repression—allegations that have now been well documented and are no longer contested by the psychiatric leadership in Russia and other post-Soviet states."

There are reports that Vladimir Putin is reinvigorating this cruel system, so it's worrisome when people in the U.S. make light of such an idea being implemented here or even seem to condone it.

Most recently, aging "bad boy" actor Sean Penn, in response to a question about the recent partial shutdown of the government, said in an interview with Piers Morgan that there should be psychiatric treatment of conservatives in Congress. 

As reported by CNN, Penn said, "I think there's a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order."

Slightly shocked by the comment, Morgan sought clarification. "You literally commit what? People like Ted Cruz?" he asked.

Describing Cruz as his American brother, the star of Milk and Mystic River insisted the Texas senator needs professional help. "I think we should take care of him," Penn said.

A U.S. president, by executive order, assigning his political opponents to mental asylums? Perhaps Penn was speaking tongue-in-cheek, but his visage during the exchange is quite serious. And perhaps he is unfamiliar with the meaning of debate in a system of representative self-government.

Such a lack of familiarity also indicates a rather primitive or even nonexistent understanding of the right to dissent, liberty of conscience, freedom of speech and human dignity we tend to take for granted as our American birthrights. Penn's proposal smacks of nothing so much as fascism.

Sadly, Penn is not alone.

University of Scranton psychology professor Barry Kuhle argues that "signs of psychopathology can ... be seen among ... conservative politicians, especially when you consider a wide range of illness indicators." 

Professor Nancy Meyer-Emerick of Cleveland State University has developed a "right wing authoritarian" (RWA) test to see if a person manifests what she views as authoritarian tendencies; unsurprisingly, "Republicans cluster at the high end of the RWA scale whereas Democrats range across the scale."

And consider this "research" from four university professors in the Psychological Bulletin of the American Psychological Association: "The core ideology of conservatism stresses resistance to change and justification of inequality and is motivated by needs that vary situationally and dispositionally to manage uncertainty and threat. We regard political conservatism as an ideological belief system that is significantly (but not completely) related to motivational concerns having to do with the psychological management of uncertainty and fear."

Commenting in 2008, Pacific University psychology professor W.T. Schultz summarized the left's grasp of conservatism quite neatly: "While watching the stupendously ruthless Republican National Convention over the last several days. Is there anything that conservatives do not hate?"

Conservatives have long argued that the Left is so confident in what it sees as the self-evident wisdom of its own beliefs and proposals that liberalism/progressivism is stunned when seemingly intelligent, articulate people disagree with it. 

To borrow Thomas Sowell's memorable phrase, "the vision of the anointed" precludes dissent or even disagreement. Revealed leftist truth—e.g., the more government, the better; the higher taxes are, the most just society is; the more radically autonomous the individual is, the freer a people become—cannot be denied or questioned, and those who challenge it are psychopathic.

In addition to being ridiculous, such a perspective is just so intellectually lazy. Portraying one's philosophical and political opponents as mentally ill allows one to dismiss their arguments and ideas and go forward toward the bright future, the veritable "worker's paradise," that is the shimmering mirage of liberalism's promise.

Woodrow Wilson, a proud "progressive," is quoted as saying, "I am sorry for those who disagree with me because I know they are wrong."

Mr. Penn, meet President Wilson.

Schultz: God Loves Obamacare

 Ed Schultz attacks Bachmann and says God likes the Affordable Care Act.


During "Ask Ed Live" on Wednesday's The Ed Show, host Ed Schultz took a snarky question from a viewer about Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). The fan asked Ed if he would ask Bachmann what God thought of the Affordable Care Act, a reference to the congresswoman's comments in 2011 about feeling called to run for president in 2012. Bachmann had said that she and her husband pray about every decision they make and ask God what to do. She also said in an interview on Face The Nation that she believes God will speak to her and tell her what to do.
 
Schultz answered the question by saying Bachmann would never do an interview with him, implying that he has not invited on her on his program. Then he said with a grin:
 “

 My first question would be about the uh possible ethics violation that she's being investigated for... I'll tell you what I think God thinks of the Affordable Care Act. It's a big amen!
 
The ethics charge Schultz is referring to is the accusation Bachmann and Ron Paul's 2012 campaigns made payments to an Iowa politician.
 
This is not the first time Schultz has harassed Bachmann for her belief in prayer and hearing from God. The majority of Americans, though most likely not his viewers, do believe in the existence of God. In America 76% believe in the existence of God, and of those, half say they have done something because God told them too.  According to Schultz, they are all laughable and crazy.
 
Ed did not say how he knew God would say Obamacare was "a big amen!" Clearly he didn't hear it from God himself...

Mayor Bloomberg: New high school named for Nelson Mandela will open in Brooklyn

The Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice will open its doors next September. It will be located at Brooklyn's Boys and Girls High School, where Mandela visited in 1990.

12/6/13

One day after the death of South African icon Nelson Mandela, Mayor Bloomberg announced a new high school will be named for the famed apartheid fighter, it will open on the campus Mandela visited in 1990.

The Nelson Mandela School for Social Justice will debut in September 2014 at the Boys and Girls High School in Brooklyn, where cheering throngs met the newly freed Mandela in 1990 and gave him a hero's welcome in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood.

"Equal opportunity and access to education were among the many things Nelson Mandela spent his life fighting for," Bloomberg said Friday.

"President Mandela once said 'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.' Renaming the campus he visited shortly after his release from prison, will forever serve as a reminder that our mandate as public servants is to provide our children with the weapons they need for a successful future and help us build a city of inclusion," he said.

Mandela visited the school as part of whirlwind trip to New York City, where thousands cheered his public appearances. The anti-apartheid leader had recently been freed from a South African prison after serving 27 years.

"Nelson Mandela visited this building not long after he was released from prison, and we want to ensure that the special bond between the students and this legendary figure will live forever," said Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott.

"Every time they enter and exit its doors, our students at this new school will be reminded of the values he personified," Walcott said.

That caught my attention too - every time I see these Jesuitical buzzwords like "social justice" in places like this, then it's all but obvious how the Vatican/Jesuits have deeply infiltrated every aspect of society like this, and Mandela himself was probably a Jesuit agent.

This is the Liberal mind set...

Palestinian Student Threatens Israeli Soldier with Knife, University Defends

 In reaction, University president sent email lauding role of 'strong opinions' in fostering debate.


A student at San Francisco State University appears to have threatened an Israeli soldier in a social media post. In reaction, SFSU President Les Wong has sent out a statement lauding free speech and the role “strong debate” has on campus.
 
The Jewish Press noted that the post, seen above, was cause for alarm:
 “

The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a warning to officials at San Francisco State University on Monday, Dec. 2, advising them of a potential threat to Jewish students there. The basis for the warning was the posting on the social media forum Tumblr which appears to be by the president of San Francisco State’s General Union of Palestine Students, Mohammad Hammad. The photo shows Hammad with a knife, beneath which is the caption, “I seriously can not get over how much I love this blade. It is the sharpest thing I own and cuts through everything like butter and just holding it makes me want to stab an Israeli soldier.”
 
President Wong's statement, however, made no mention of the incident's specifics, only generically defended the rights for differing views to be fully heard:
 “

First and foremost, I ask that you stay firmly committed to free speech.  Strong opinions—and strong disagreements—are essential to the life of our democracy, and the life of our university. While one may want to step in and sanction a student or colleague for speech we find repugnant, our obligation is to allow the lawful airing of views.
 
FrontPageMag.com noted the hypocrisy in Wong’s reaction:
 “

Even though university presidents now routinely condemn Halloween costumes when Muslims find them offensive, Dr. Leslie Wong, the president of San Francisco State University, without referencing the specifics of the case in any way, urged everyone to “stay firmly committed to free speech.  Strong opinions—and strong disagreements—are essential to the life of our democracy, and the life of our university.”
 
Pro-Israel students and College Republicans at San Francisco State were investigated for stepping on Hamas and Hezbollah flags.  The students were accused of “attempts to incite violence and create a hostile environment” because Allah was written on the terrorist flags.
 
However threatening to stab Israeli soldiers, some of whom, after their service, attend American colleges, is not an incitement to violence or the creation of a hostile environment by San Francisco State University standards.
 
Allegedly, another post exists in which the student goes into greater detail about which soldier specifically he’d like to murder. That post reportedly reads:
 “

I’m sitting here looking through pictures of that f***ing s*** [NAME REMOVED TO PROTECT THE SOLDIER]….Anyone who thinks there can be peace with animals like this is absolutely delusional, and the only “peace” I’m interested in is the head of this f***ing s*** on a plate, as well as the heads of all others like her, and all others who support the IDF The Liberation of Palestine can only come through the destruction and decimation of this Israeli plague and it can’t possibly come soon enough.
 
Nothing more has yet been done by San Francisco State officials.

Feminist Blogger: 'I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids'
"And I'm not sorry..."


Quote

If abortion doesn't quite embody the depraved, totalitarian motives lurking beneath the sadistic scowls of liberal feminism enough, then blogger Amy Glass' recent piece for Thought Catalog titled, "I Look Down On Young Women With Husbands And Kids And I’m Not Sorry," surely seems ripe for the picking.

The cruel, mean-spirited language speaks for itself:

    Every time I hear someone say that feminism is about validating every choice a woman makes I have to fight back vomit.

    Do people really think that a stay at home mom is really on equal footing with a woman who works and takes care of herself? There’s no way those two things are the same. It’s hard for me to believe it’s not just verbally placating these people so they don’t get in trouble with the mommy bloggers.

    Having kids and getting married are considered life milestones. We have baby showers and wedding parties as if it’s a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration to be able to get knocked up or find someone to walk down the aisle with. These aren’t accomplishments, they are actually super easy tasks, literally anyone can do them. They are the most common thing, ever, in the history of the world. They are, by definition, average. And here’s the thing, why on earth are we settling for average?

    If women can do anything, why are we still content with applauding them for doing nothing?

    I want to have a shower for a woman when she backpacks on her own through Asia, gets a promotion, or lands a dream job not when she stays inside the box and does the house and kids thing which is the path of least resistance. The dominate cultural voice will tell you these are things you can do with a husband and kids, but as I’ve written before, that’s a lie. It’s just not reality.

    You will never have the time, energy, freedom or mobility to be exceptional if you have a husband and kids.

    I hear women talk about how 'hard' it is to raise kids and manage a household all the time. I never hear men talk about this. It’s because women secretly like to talk about how hard managing a household is so they don’t have to explain their lack of real accomplishments. Men don’t care to 'manage a household.' They aren’t conditioned to think stupid things like that are 'important.'

    Women will be equal with men when we stop demanding that it be considered equally important to do housework and real work. They are not equal. Doing laundry will never be as important as being a doctor or an engineer or building a business. This word play is holding us back.

CNN Panel Explodes Over Whether It’s Offensive to Say a Transgender Woman Was Once a ‘Boy’

Welcome to Bizzaro World...

CNN’s Piers Morgan, who considers himself an advocate for the transgender community, was attacked relentlessly on social media after he said author and transgender activist Janet Mock was at one point a “boy” during his interview with her on Tuesday.

After a follow-up interview with Mock on Wednesday, Morgan invited a panel of guests, including TheBlaze’s Amy Holmes to debate whether what he said was offensive or factually incorrect.

Holmes said she attempted to gain a better understanding of why Mock was so offended by talking to two people who accompanied the woman to Wednesday’s interview.

“I said, ‘basically, the contention is that Janet never wants to be referred to as ever having been a boy because from her point of view she was always a girl,’” Holmes said. “And the answer was: ‘Correct.’”

“But it seemed like it was really more of a semantic issue here because the one and only reason why she is on this show, has written a book, is getting national attention was because she was born with male genitalia, went through surgery and is now female,” she added. “And that’s, frankly, a pretty sensational thing to go through in life.”

CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill told Morgan that him saying he’s an “ally” of the transgender community in defense of his comments is like “white people point to the number of black friends they have.”

Morgan was wrong to say Mock was formerly boy, though she should have called him out during the actual interview, not later on Twitter, Hill explained.

But things got really tense when conservative radio host Ben Ferguson chimed in with what he said are the “facts.”

“Let’s deal with facts here. She was a boy and she was a man when she was born,” he began. “Now she can be in the head and say she doesn’t accept that.”

“I disagree,” Hill interrupted.

Without acknowledging him, Ferguson continued: “But based on medicine and based on doctors, you come out and you are a man or you’re a woman.”

“That’s not true Ben! Ben, That’s not a fact! Ben, just because you say it’s a fact doesn’t make it true,” Hill hollered.

“You are confusing sex and gender, you should really read a book on this,” Hill told Ferguson.

The conservative radio host went on to accuse Mock of creating a fake outrage in order to sell more books, an allegation that Holmes pushed back against.

What a nut job! Sex and gender are the exact same thing.

They are just trying to establish the false idea that people may be born with certain sex organs, but the false claim is that person may be of the opposite "gender". What they call science is actually nothing more than opinions of gay people trying to claim something that just doesn't exist.

Dem Rep: Thanks to Obamacare, You Can Now Cook Dinner or Retire
The spin machine is in full swing to save Obamacare


Sunday on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Representative Keith Ellison (D-Mn) sparred with Representative Tom Cole (R-Ok) over the Congressional Budget Office report which stated that Obamacare will reduce full-time employment by over 2 million jobs by 2024.

Rep. Ellison said this reduction in hours might allow for parents to come home and cook dinner rather than ordering take out. Amazingly, he also said, "People are going to be able to retire" and "start new businesses." Rep. Cole called this out for what it is -- "great spin."

Here is the conversation:

    Cole: What the CBO report does say is that we're going to lose 1-2% of hours worked because of this. And, you know, you can argue that's a good thing -- I've heard that argument; give people some choices and I have no doubt in some cases it is. But discouraging work is not something we need to be doing right now. Making our economy marginally less productive -- not a good thing. It's not like this is the only flaw in Obamacare. We've got a raft of them to talk about.

    Ellison: What the Congressional Budget Office is saying is that we're going to discourage kids from having to have latch key. We're going to have parents be able to come home working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might be able to actually cook dinner rather than have to order and get some takeout. I mean, the fact is that if Americans can have more choices to open up a new business they've been wanting to start, this is a good thing…The fact of the matter is, we need a better work-life balance. Ask a working mother, OK, if she could use a few more hours in the day to take care of her family. That's what's really going on.

    Cole: It's great spin, but I don't think it's going to work. [laughs] Good luck.

Retire? I thought this word doesn't come up until they're 65? Roll Eyes

A better work-life balance and more time from home via telecommunications? I thought mothers given the choice to work at home since the 90's was THE better option? No? Roll Eyes

Talk about trying to chase an ambulance!

Saying that you can "retire" because there is no jobs is like saying you can be healthy by walking when your car breaks down!  Roll Eyes

Pro-Life Display Offensive but Male Nudity Not on U. of Alabama Campus

At one time in America, something considered offensive went against our conservative Christian norms.  Things like nudity, foul language, graphic violence, the use of blood, urine and feces in art or public displays were all considered to be offensive and generally not tolerated by the American people or the courts.

Then liberals began to challenge our conservative and Christian norms, often citing the First Amendment right to free speech.  They successfully overturned pornography laws which opened the door to many facets of what once was considered to be offensive and still is to many of us.  So-called artists have used the First Amendment to justify using blood, urine and feces in their works, even displaying Jesus in a jar of urine or showing someone crapping on the American flag.

Liberal immorality and perversion has so permeated American culture these days that what is deemed offensive has made a 180 degree turn.  Pornography and other perversions are legally considered to be normal and traditional while Christian conservative values are now commonly ruled to be offensive.

We can’t allow anything Christian in our public schools not only because of the fictitious separation of church of state but also because it might offend someone.  However, the same rule doesn’t apply for anything Muslim or atheist as they are allowed in more and more public schools throughout the nation.

An example of the change in what is offensive can be seen in a recent incident that took place at the University of Alabama.  Bama Students for Life set up a pro-life display on campus with a photo of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist convicted of murdering babies born alive and two images of aborted babies.  The display also contained the messages:

    “NOT SAFE, NOT RARE, just legal.”

    “56 million human beings have been aborted since Roe V. Wade”

The Bama Students for Life display was set up on January 17 and then was suddenly gone by February 6.  The pro-life group was not given any notice or explanation for the removal of the display.  Claire Chretien, President of the pro-life group sought out Donna Lake the Event Coordinator on the Alabama campus.  Lake told Chretien:

    “You guys were lucky to get it up there as long as you did.”

Then Lake explained to Chretien that the university policy says that she can remove any display that she deems contains offensive or graphic material.  Chretien argued that they university allows posters to be displayed that showed full frontal male nudity and movie advertisements that were all blood stained and these things are offensive to many.  Chretien then asks:

    “Who defines what is and is not offensive?”

And the answer to that question is easy as the liberals with little to no moral values are the ones that determine what is and is not offensive.  To them, anything Christian and conservative is offensive and won’t be allowed.  They don’t care about the same First Amendment right to free speech that they used to get their perverted ways accepted.  They don’t want equality.  They want superiority and they are getting just that.
