Obama and Warren...Together Again

Much has been made of Barack Obama's choice of Pastor Rick Warren as the man that will deliver the prayer at the inauguration on January 20. Gay rights groups feel betrayed because Warren is a traditional marriage guy. Conservatives felt betrayed because Warren didn't press Obama on abortion during the sit down with the candidates at his church. I simply don't see the disconnect here. But, then again, I always look behind the scenes to discern what is actually taking place. Rick Warren and Barack Obama are both members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). So is John McCain and the Clintons. The CFR is the modern day illuminati. They are the group that sets the policy that guides America and therefore the rest of the world. "The directors of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) make up a sort of presidium for that part of the establishment that guides our destiny as a nation." - The Christian Science Monitor, 9/1/61. Their main focus is bringing about the one world government standard. Other current noteworthy members include George Soros, Fred Thompson, Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, Paul Krugman, Henry Kissinger, Alan Greenspan, Robert Gates, Thomas Friedman and Madeline Albright. You can clearly see that political persuasion does not have an effect on membership.

So why is anyone surprised by two members of a secret organization being such pals despite their outward political differences? Behind the scenes, they are on the same team. They strive for the same goal, and that goal is upon us. So instead of crying foul over a prayer, pray for this country and the safety of her and your family.

Wealthiest Nation on Earth, Built Entirely on Debt

America has long been the envy of the world. The economic giant. The manufacturing, farming, financial center of this planet. Do you ever ask yourself how we became so powerful so fast? Well, it is not all ingenuity and hard work. It is mainly built on debt.

Thomas Jefferson warned of the power that private banks could wield over the citizens. Little did he know that big bankers would be responsible for the growth of private banks into the federal government's financial matters. In 1913, with the help and urging of J.P. Morgan, the Federal Reserve system was created. The words "central bank" were not included anywhere in the charter for fear of a revolt against the idea. In fact, President Taft was not for the system, despite the insistent urging of the powerful bankers. They encouraged Teddy Roosevelt, a backer of the plan, to run against Taft in the Republican primary. He lost. The bankers did not give up and formulated an even better plan. The convinced Teddy to run in the general election against Taft and Woodrow Wilson. This shifted the advantage to Wilson who promised to sign the plan into existence. He followed through in late 1913 and the Federal Reserve was here.

Now you may be thinking that the Fed, as we like to call it today, is an arm of the government. You are mistaken. The Fed is a private group of bankers that use you and the government to rake in insane profits out of thin air. Generally, banks double their assets every ten years. That is an alarming rate and this happens despite economic conditions in the country. In fact, they control the economic conditions of the country. You see, since the dollar has been taken off the gold standard, it has no true value. It is an instrument of value that has no value of its own. It is just paper. This is called fiat money. The Feds print it, we borrow it, then we pay it back to them with interest. They create nothing of real value. "In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value." Alan Greenspan way back in 1966.

In 1901, the national debt was $1 billion. Now, that is a big billion. A billion is a thousand million. After World War II, the debt climbed to $25 billion. Ah, but it is just getting revved up. Around 1976, we passed the $630 billion mark. Now we are cooking with gas. But hold on. In the mid 1980's, we passed the $1 trillion mark. A trillion is a thousand billion. By 1990, it was over $2 trillion. How high can this thing grow? In 2003 we reached the $6 trillion level. In 2008, it is estimated that our national debt is just short of $11 trillion. It is growing at a rate of $3.5 billion per day. That is a tab of over $35,000 for every man, woman and child in America. These figures do not include state and local municipality debt either.

Now, let's recap....the Fed is not a government entity yet it sets economic policy and prints money at the request of congress. The dollar is not backed by anything other than a Fed board telling us what it is worth. The Fed controls the economy and Wall Street by restricting or freeing up money and manipulating interest rates. Now, the banks that control all of this and design illegal insurance investment schemes want the people that pay the interest to them to bail them out. Does that sound about right? Someone explain to me what is even keeping this system propped up. Someone please tell me why the entire house of cards will not come tumbling down. Who was it that once said "I love my country, but I fear my government"?

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship." - Alexander Tyler 1787

Today's Biggest Loser

America's School Children

This week, president elect Obama has nominated an old Chicago basketball buddy to head the nation's education system. Arne Duncan is the 44 year old chief of Chicago's public school system. His bio is impressive enough: magna cum laude from Harvard with a degree in Sociology. This may help explain why he is pushing so hard for a gay only high school in the city and to pay students for good grades. The rub is that neither Obama nor Duncan support public schools. Obama's daughters attend the University of Chicago Laboratory School, which Duncan also attended. The bigger rub is that even Chicago teachers do not support public schools. 38% of public school teachers in Chicago send their kids to private schools. That figure is very telling. Studies like the 2004 Thomas Fordham Institute report find big city public school teachers to be more likely than the general population they serve to have their own children in private schools. So what does Mr. Duncan offer the education system in America. More money spent, more specialized schools, no vouchers and no real improvement. Congratulations all of this, you are the biggest loser.

Colin Powell Thinks You are an Idiot

Remember way back when, when Colin Powell liked John McCain in the primary election? Then he shuffled as he so often does and endorsed Barry for president. Now, he still thinks he has some significance or bearing on the Republican party. He was never in the party before, so why start now? He wants to move conservatives to the middle. He wants to hi-jack the party and make it moderate. Now he is blasting talk radio, the ones that keep the fire going for the base. "Can we continue to listen to Rush Limbaugh? Is this really the kind of party that we want to be when these kinds of spokespersons seem to appeal to our lesser instincts rather than our better instincts?" Well, we sure as hades aren't going to listen to you. Rush and Sean actually endorsed McCain. You endorsed Obama. What makes you think you can tell true conservatives anything. You built your career on the backs of Republicans and never once showed an ounce of gratitude. "I think the party has to stop shouting at the world and at the country. I think that the party has to take a hard look at itself, and I've talked to a number of leaders in recent weeks and they understand that." What leaders? Pelosi and Schumer?

The Republican party is searching for leadership. They are wandering a bit right now. Someone will soon step up and take the role of leading us into the next cycle. Colin Powell is not that man. Colin Powell is a wolf in sheep's dress blues. Colin Powell thinks you are an idiot.

An Even Better Quote for Today

"They (the Founding Fathers) knew that governments don't control things. A government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. They also knew, those Founding Fathers, that outside of its legitimate functions, government does nothing as well or as economically as the private sector of the economy. "

Ronald Reagan, 1964, A Time For Choosing Speech

I sure do miss that man.

Quote of the Day

"A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take away everything you have."

Senator Mitch McConnell, sounding very much like a conservative yesterday, speaking about the soft guidelines of the auto bailout.

Citizens of Floyd County Rejoice...For About Five Months

Congratulations. You did it. You filled the in boxes of the county council with your disgust for new taxes and they listened. Pat yourself on the back. Now shake it off and focus on the next battle. Rest assured the council will take this up again at their next available time...April 2009. Go ahead and get a jump on all those liberals and keep writing the powers that be. Good things happen when we stand together.

Business as Usual in Illinois

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested Tuesday and charged with carrying on the business of a long line of politicians from the state, conspiracy to benefit financially. When cuffed and given an explanation of the charges, the governor said "I earned that money." Not really, that is just me pondering his thoughts.

What really happened here was the governor offering up the U.S. Senate seat appointment to the highest bidder. According to the criminal complaint, Blagojevich also was charged with illegally threatening to withhold state assistance to Tribune Company, the owner of the Chicago Tribune and about a dozen other papers in the U.S., in the sale of Wrigley Field. In return for state assistance, he wanted members of the paper's editorial board who had been critical of him fired. Strike two. He discussed getting appointments to boards along with his wife that would yield big checks with no work. And to put the cherry on top...he wanted an ambassadorship in the Obama administration once he left office. Strike three, you're out. He is also tied to Tony Rezko and Stuart Levine in the affidavit. Ok, that one gets you tossed from the game pal.

Blagojevich took the chief executive's office in 2003 by promising to clean up former Gov. George Ryan's mess. Ryan, a Republican, is serving a 6-year prison sentence after being convicted on racketeering and fraud. A decade-long investigation began with the sale of driver's licenses for bribes and led to the conviction of dozens of people who worked for Ryan when he was secretary of state and governor. See, Illinois is an equal opportunity state. Democrats and Republicans can co-exist in a plethora of greed and crime. Ahh, the Land of Lincoln today looks more like the land of Capone.

Genesis Predicts the Bailout

Genesis explains the bailout years before the corporate heads belly up to the bar in Washington. I am not talking about the Bible here folks. I am talking about the Phil Collins' Genesis. Way back in 1987 on the album "Invisible Touch" the song "Tonight,Tonight,Tonight" was released and made its way up the charts to number three in the U.S. Many of you thought is was a song about a man struggling with his addiction to drugs and meeting with his dealer, but oh no, you couldn't be farther from the truth. Phil was prophetically speaking about the bailout of businesses by the tax payers that would occur over twenty years later. You don't believe me? Well take a gander at these lyrics and decide for yourself.

"I got some money in my pocket, ( Congress)
about ready to burn
I don't remember where I got it, ( from Tax Payers )
I gotta get it to you
So please answer the phone,
cos I keep calling,
but you're never home
What am I gonna do

Tonight, tonight, tonight -
oh I'm gonna make it right
Tonight, tonight, tonight - oh.

You keep telling me I've got everything,
you say I've got everything I want
You keep telling me you're gonna help me, ( AIG, GM, Fannie )
you're gonna help me, but you don't
But now I'm in too deep ( Big Three Automakers )
You see it's got me so that I just can't sleep

Oh get me out of here,
please get me out of here
Just help me I'll do anything, anything ( Including building cars that no one wants )
If you'll just help me get out of here.

That is pretty obvious to me. The part about "You keep telling me you are going to help me but you don't. Now I am in too deep" sounds like the Big Three Automakers, no?

This Phil Collins guy is like Nostradamus. I am now rifling through other songs to see what I can glean from them about America's financial future. I will report back as soon as I find something substantial.

For the Hard to Buy For on Your List...Planned Parenthood Gift Certificates

We all have one or two on our shopping list. The hard to buy for. The ones that have everything. I know what you are thinking...Gift Certificates, right? Great choice, but forget Home Depot or Kohl's. What you want is one from Planned Parenthood of Indiana. That's right, nothing says Happy Birthday Jesus quite like $50 towards your next abortion. Here are all the disgusting details from Cyber News Service.

CNSNews.comIndiana’s Planned Parenthood Offers Holiday Gift Certificates for Clinic ServicesWednesday, December 03, 2008By Penny Starr, Senior Staff Writer

( – “Looking for an unusual, yet practical gift this holiday season? Planned Parenthood of Indiana is now offering gift certificates for services or the recipient’s choice of birth control.” That’s the pitch on Planned Parenthood of Indiana’s Web site, inviting visitors to purchase gift certificates in $25 increments for all services – including abortion – at its 35 clinics across the state. “The gift certificates are intended for basic, preventive health care, such as annual exams,” a spokeswoman from Planned Parenthood of Indiana (PPIN) told “But it’s up to each patient how they use them.” Planned Parenthood Federation of America said PPIN is one of a “handful” of its chapters around the country offering the gift certificates. But critics said Planned Parenthood should not use Christmas as a marketing tool. “The word inappropriate hardly describes Planned Parenthood’s scheme,” said Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., who works for a number of pro-life causes, including Priests for Life. “To give someone a gift card from the nation’s largest abortion business to is to give death for Christmas.” In an Associated Press story, Betty Cockrum, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana, defended the gift certificate campaign, saying it would help the people in the state without health insurance gain access to health care. The Associated Press also reported that Indiana Health Commissioner Dr. Judy Monroe praised the gift certificates as “a really meaningful gift.” But King said she finds them offensive, especially as a taxpayer who contributes to the money the U.S. government gives to Planned Parenthood each year through its Title X funding, which does not include paying for abortions. “No amount of spin can turn this promotion into anything other than an abomination,” King said. “Congress gave Planned Parenthood $3 million last year, and now a chapter of this group is defiling the celebration of our savior’s birth. As one of America’s taxpayers, I want my money back.” Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, told “I think in this holiday season where we’re celebrating the birth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ, it’s ironic that Planned Parenthood would take it upon themselves to offer gift certificates that would include giving money to someone who would be looking to have an abortion or seeking an abortion. “I think it’s ironic, it’s a diabolic scheme or scam, however you want to put it, and I just think it’s really sad,” Gardner said.

How brash can these people be? First it was taking donations over the phone for abortions of babies that were of a certain race. Now it is making murder a gift of the season. How far will these people go? And they do it all with a huge influx of your tax money.

Quote of the Day

Is Mike Ditka getting senile in his old age? He took away footballs when he played, now he just wants to take away Constitutional rights from NFL players. Here he is referring to Plaxico Burress and other players involved in gun incidents.

From Yahoo Sports:

Mike Ditka, the Hall of Fame tight end and former Chicago Bears football coach, advocates banning NFL players from owning guns. Ditka said, “I don’t understand the league, why can anybody have a gun? I will have a policy, no guns, any NFL players we find out, period, you’re suspended.”

And that is why you are not the commish.

Defamation of Religion Resolution or Criminalizing Christianity?

The United Nations General Assembly will once again take up the matter of "protecting religion" sometime this month with another vote on the Defamation of Religion Resolution. This resolution is being put forth by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The measure calls on all countries to ensure their legal systems provide protection against “acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions,”

What is being talked about as a tolerance plan is actually quite the opposite. Although the OIC says the campaign is aimed at protecting all faiths, once again only Islam is cited by name.
The resolution contains language forbidding anyone from speaking negatively about Islam. The punishment ranges from prison time to death. This is an open door for those that wish to persecute Christians or any religion that does not follow the Islamic faith.

U.N. Watch, a Geneva-based organization that monitors the U.N.’s Human Rights Council, acknowledged that the resolution is “aimed at the Western world to intimidate anyone from criticizing radical Islam....”

UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer called the resolution and the growing opposition to it “just the latest shot in an intensifying campaign of U.N. resolutions that dangerously seek to import Islamic anti-blasphemy prohibitions into the discourse of international human rights law.”In Islamic countries, he said, “Muslim moderates, bloggers, women seeking basic freedoms – all of these will be the first to suffer from the worsening climate of state repression in the name of state-supported Islamic orthodoxy.”The move was also “aimed at the Western world, to intimidate anyone from criticizing radical Islam and those who commit violence in its name,” Neuer said.

Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them

Will it be His Way or the Clinton Way?

Hillary Clinton was announced yesterday as nominee for the Secretary of State post in what might have been the worst kept secret in Washington. But, what is not a secret is Hillary's feelings about Obama's foreign policies and his intent to legitimize rogue leaders.

"I thought that was irresponsible and frankly naive." Hillary Clinton July 24, 2007. Referencing Barack Obama's statement that he would be prepared to meet the leaders of Iran, Syria, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela in his first year in office.

No big deal...let bygones be bygones. It would be irresponsible for the president to sit down with those leaders, so now Madame Secretary gets the honors. But, what about Iran. Hillary has an interesting take on the little man in Tehran. Mrs. Clinton once called for a new Palestinian state when her husband was president, now she says she will come to the aid of Israel. "I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran… In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them." That question was asked by Chris Cuomo on ABC News' Good Morning America about what she would do as president if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons.

What does Obama think of Iran..."Iran, Cuba, Venezuela — these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us. And yet we were willing to talk to the Soviet Union at the time when they were saying, `We're going to wipe you off the planet." He said that at a campaign rally in Kansas in May of 2008.

So whose philosophy will win in the end. I prefer the hawk. I am a Reagan guy. Peace through strength. My gut tells me that Hillary will have to bend to the president. My hope is that Robert Gates can stand his ground.

Today's Quote

"The art of government is to make two-thirds of a nation pay all it possibly can pay for the benefit of the other third." Voltaire 1694-1778: attributed; Walter Bagehot The English Constitution (1867)
