32,000 Walk for Life in San Francisco, Media All but Ignores It

Saturday, January 31, 2009

My fellow pro-lifers, the horrendous abuse of abortion is the number one civil right cause of our generation. Roughly an entire third of all babies conceived in America are being destroyed with this procedure, one third of those by teenage mothers pressured into it by a system that encourages them to not even talk to their parents about it! Abortion is not only obliterates a beating heart that wants to live, but is very harmful--both physically and psychologically--to the mothers.

Most of the main-stream media is fighting their hardest to continue and even expand abortion; They have given little to no coverage of the many pro-life events "commemorating" the 36th anniversary of "Roe v. Wade": 300,000 marched in Washington DC, 32,000 in San Francisco, 20,000 in Paris, but the media remained silent.

It is up to us to be so loud that the media cannot ignore us. Forward this video to all your friends in the fight and let them know that there are many of us determined to end the genocide of our unborn children!

NBC Bans Pro-Life Super Bowl Commercial, Allows PETA Ad

Update: NBC explains they banned the ad because it is political. The PETA ad will still run, however. (UPdate: NBC apparently blocked the PETA commercial, but on different grounds.) Also, expect to see a godaddy.com ad featuring women baring their chests in a locker room.

When, oh when will people boycott the Evil Network? They pulled this crap throughout the Olympics too.

$1 Billion U.S. Bailout Goes Straight To Brazil

General Motors, one of America's dinosaur auto makers, announced that $1 billion of their federal bailout will go to Brazil investments.

Weren't liberals just recently frothing at the mouth because of Bush's exhorbant spending overseas?

That "stimulus" to demolish 4 million pickups and SUVs really helps too, I'm sure. Is there any possibility America is not doomed? Please someone tell me...

Samuel L. Jackson In Latest Anti-Mormon Smear

"I wouldn't go so far as to calling them un-American," Jackson told Foxnews.com. "I'd just call them misinformed."


NBC Connections To Tax Cheat Geithner; Benifits From Bailout

General Electric (owner of NBC News, CNBC, and MSNBC) chairman Jeffrey Immelt is on the board of the New York Federal Reserve, headed by Timothy Geithner. Furthermore, the federal government promised $139 billion to GE Capital, the same fed under recent Treasury Secretary Geithner. Conflict of interest much?

As we know, Geithner got caught cheating on his taxes big time. Not only that, he lied about it at his confirmation hearing when he blamed the problem on TurboTax. Yet the heavily Democrat Senate Finance Committee endorsed Geithner 18-5, much to NBC's praise. On Thursday, Art Cashin of CNBC claimed that the stock market was crashing because the Senate wasn't confirming Geither quickly enough.

When GE received its loan, NBC failed to report that GE was its parent company.

Jim Cramer of CNBC was slower to support Geithner, condemning his tax cheating at first. But eventually he came around, quoting his "Wall Street buddies" who say "Jim, he’s the greatest."

Also, don't expect NBC to report Geithner's appalling misunderanding of currency conversion.

"Gay Marriage" Activists Set Their Sights on New England

DNA affiliate Drew Conrad of United Families International wrote the following article for The Exception Magazine.

Recently, much of the gay marriage debate has been focused in California; however, in the past few weeks the debate has returned to its roots on the East Coast. The group, Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) has announced their plans to legalize same-sex marriage in the six New England area states.

GLAD told the Washington Times, “We can make New England a marriage-equality zone by strategically combining existing legal, electoral and on-the-ground know-how to fast-track marriage in every New England state. By 2012, we not only can have marriage equality throughout New England, we can have a road map for the rest of the country.” Two New England states, Massachusetts and Connecticut, already allow same-sex couples to enter into matrimony. Through legislation proposed in the Maine State Legislature, GLAD has taken steps to add Maine to the list of states where Same-Sex Marriage is legal.


Traditional marriage must be protected because of the effect on education and the parent’s right to teach and rear children. Several cases prove that once same-sex marriage is legalized, public schools must teach that it is just as acceptable as heterosexual marriage. Public schools will, by law, be required to teach about gay marriage and parents will be required to stand by and watch as principles they disagree with are taught to their children.

The family is the fundamental unit of society; marriage is between a man and a woman. These truths must be defended and preserved. In the name of family, children, religious freedom, parental rights, and the future of our society stand up for marriage today!

Judge Rules Against Constitutional Rights Of Prop-8 Donors

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Morrison England was unanimously approved by the 2002 Senate Judiciary Committee, with Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), and Bush's State Chair Gerald Parsky, and then signed by Bush. He was soon shortlisted by Gov. Schwarzenbackstabber for Supreme Court as a "moderate Republican" after the last conservative of that court retired.

Remember that big fire at Lake Tahoe last year? Morisson stopped measures that would have prevented it.

It will go to appeals from here.

Gay Activists Want AIDS Help To Nigeria Halted Over Gay Marriage Ban

Is there anything that is beneath these rats?!

Stop Foreign Aid to Nigeria for Banning Gay “Marriage”: European Union’s Homosexual Rights Group

The European Union’s Intergroup on “gay rights” has demanded that all foreign aid to Nigeria be suspended after that country’s House of Representatives voted to prohibit attempts to create legal “gay marriage.” The Nigerian vote was unanimous this week in favour of a bill that “prohibits marriage between persons of same gender, solemnisation of same and other matters related therewith.”

Why Should We Support Israel? Because It's Their Land

I think it is shameful how how media has been blasting Israel about their recent military action in Gaza. What do you think we would do if Mexico started firing rockets at us?


1. Nationhood and Jerusalem. Israel became a nation in 1312 BCE, Two thousand years before the rise of Islam.

2. Arab refugees in Israel began identifying themselves as part of a Palestinian people in 1967, two decades after the establishment of the modern State of Israel.

3. Since the Jewish conquest in 1272 BCE, the Jews have had dominion over the land for one thousand years with a continuous presence in the land for the past 3,300 years.

4. The only Arab dominion since the conquest in 635 CE lasted no more than 22 years.

5. For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit.

6. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in Tanach, the Jewish Holy Scriptures. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Koran.

7. King David founded the city of Jerusalem. Mohammed never came to Jerusalem.

8. Jews pray facing Jerusalem. Muslims pray with their backs toward Jerusalem.

9. Arab and Jewish Refugees: in 1948 the Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by Arab leaders promising to purge the land of Jews. Sixty-eight percent left without ever seeing an Israeli soldier.

10 The Jewish refugees were forced to flee from Arab lands due to Arab brutality, persecution and pogroms.

11. The number of Arab refugees who left Israel in 1948 is estimated to be around 630,000.The number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands is estimated to be the same.

12. Arab refugees were INTENTIONALLY not absorbed or integrated into the Arab lands to which they fled, despite the vast Arab territory. Out of the 100,000,000 refugees since World War II, theirs is the only refugee group in the world that has never been absorbed or integrated into their own people's lands. Jewish refugees were completely absorbed into Israel, a country no larger than the state of New Jersey .

13. The Arab-Israeli Conflict: the Arabs are represented by eight separate nations, not including the Palestinians. There is only one Jewish nation. The Arab nations initiated all five wars and lost. Israel defended itself each time and won.

14. The PLO's Charter still calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Israel has given the Palestinians most of the West Bank land, autonomy under the Palestinian Authority, and has supplied them.

15. Under Jordanian rule, Jewish holy sites were desecrated and the Jews were denied access to places of worship. Under Israeli rule, all Muslim and Christian sites have been preserved and made accessible to people of all faiths.

16. The UN Record on Israel and the Arabs: of the 175 Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel.

17. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel.

18. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians.

19. The UN was silent while the Jordanians systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives.

20. The UN was silent while the Jordanians enforced an apartheid-like a policy of preventing Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.


Our Government's New Constitution

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

House Democrats passed the massive Obama spending bill earlier today that essentially increases our federal government's spending by a third. For the record, the bill was opposed by and bi-partisan coalition comprised of every single Republican representative plus eleven Democrats. The bill is now up for consideration in the Senate.

Our government's new Constitution:

We the Politicians
of the Democrat-controlled White House and Congress of America, in order to form a more euro-socialist union, establish massive government welfare programs, ensure the redistribution of wealth to those who do not contribute to the economy, provide for teenage abortions (without parental notification), promote the homosexual agenda, and secure (through free handouts) our voter base dependency to ourselves and future liberal politicians, do ordain and establish these "emergency" executive orders and bills that will place the debt of trillions of dollars on the future children and grandchildren of the people of the United States of America.

Please take out some time and give your representatives a call to either thank them for standing up against the Obama euro-socialist machine, no-thank them for not, or let them know how you stand for the senate vote. You can find out how to reach them by phone here.

Obama's Secret Meeting With Supreme Court

Obama and Biden met with eight members (conservative Alito was absent) of the Supreme Court on January 14th, with only their aides and White House Counsel Greg Craig present. There is no explanation of what they discussed in this pre-inauguration four hour meeting.

But rumors are swirling that Obama's birth certificate was the topic. The court denied Orly Taitz' challenging Obama's eligibility lawsuit about a week after the secret meeting. Almost three dozen similar legal actions have also been struck down since. Taiz claims Obama has spent "$800,000 on numerous attorneys to keep his original birth certificate sealed." Greg Craig was directed Clinton's team that fought his impeachment proceedings. Was he there to take on a similar constitutionality issue?

Craig will have 31 deputies under him. He will hear National Security Council reports. If Obama's "natural born citizen" status wasn't the main topic, America's torture techniques and other National Security issues probably were.

As Gore Battles Blizzards To Preach The Global Warming Lie...

Despite the freezing snow storms battling the east coast, Al Gore showed up before a Senate Committee today to urge immediate action to battle global warming.

The dirty truth is that global temperatures have not risen since 1998. BBC reported this in April and then quickly changed their report. Global temperatures actually decreased last year. "Experts" blamed this on the La Ninaassure "phenomenon and assured us temperatures will go back up.

Ocean temperatures have decreased the last three years according to NASA. Don't expect Foxnews to report this. NASA scientists have even admitted that temperature sensors were placed by artificial heating devices to raise the detected temperatures in their studies. Dr. James Hansen, chief climate scientist at NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the man who raised the global warming alarm in 1988 in an appearance before congress, says he "embarrassed NASA” by raising the global warming fear.

Why does Gore persist? He won a Nobel Prize for the lie. The media calls him a philanthropist, a world famous champion. He has made big bucks off carbon offset companies and stands to make more if the government makes this standard for businesses, punishing "carbon producing" businesses, as Obama wants to do. The carbon business was revealed to be a massive scam that helps China, by the way. Everyone is too invested in the lie to tell the truth now!

Over 31,000 scientists signed a petition rejecting global warming. They say it's a U.N. scheme to start a global tax. Recently 650 scientists told the United Nations global warming is a lie.

"Stimulus" Bill to be Voted on Today: Full of Billions of Dollars in Liberal Pork

The House is expected to vote TODAY (Wednesday) on the Obama Stimulus bill, which is getting worse and worse -- and bigger and bigger -- by the hour. Here's just a sampling of what is in the bill:

$2.4 billion carbon capture products...

$4.19 billion for ACORN and other bogus "community organizing" groups...

$650 million digital tv conversion...

$79 billion to bail out the state education system...

Hundreds of millions for family planning...

$400 million global warming research...

$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts...

$200 million to refurbish the National Mall...

And the bill is not even a stimulus! Just 1% of the so-called stimulus is for tax cuts for small businesses. And according to the Congressional Budget Office, two thirds of the stimulus will not even be spent for nearly two years! Rep. Mike Pence calls the bill a "dusty old wish list of liberal spending priorities."

Call or write your members of Congress now and ask them to stop this insane spending spree that will fall upon the backs of our children and grand-children to pay off later!

Italian Singer Accused of Hate Crimes for Writing Song About a Gay Man Who Became Straight

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

We are now living in a time when many--especially in our media and government--are pushing for the "invented right" of universal acceptance for homosexual behavior. They are doing this by presenting homosexuality as normal and acceptable at every chance they get, teaching it to our children in the public schools and passing legislation that both legitimizes homosexuality and punishes those who refuse to accept it.

The greatest possible sacrilege to these supporters of homosexuality comes from those who were gay but converted to heterosexuality. This goes against everything they believe in--ie. there is nothing wrong with being gay and you can't help it--and they will do anything to discredit and stop such accounts. The following article tells about an Italian singer who wrote a song about just such an account and is now being internationally persecuted (homosexual supporters have a vast, powerful network) and even accused by an international court for hate-speech.

Italian Performer Sings Story of Conversion from Homosexuality at Music Festival

Homosexual activists enraged; complaint filed with European Court of Human Rights

By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

SANREMO, ITALY, January 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Italian singer Giuseppe Povia is making waves in Italy with his new song recounting the conversion of a homosexual to heterosexuality.

The piece, "Lucas Was Gay," which is to be performed for the first time at the Sanremo Festival in Sanremo, Italy on February 21, tells the true story of Luca di Tolve, a young man who recently spoke of his conversion in the Italian newspaper Il Giornale.

Tolve attributes his former homosexuality to the divorce of his parents during his childhood, when his father left. "I remained alone in a feminine environment, playing with dolls. It is a mistake to believe that people are born gay," he said in the interview. "You fall in love with a man because that is what you would have wanted to be."

"Homosexuals experience a frenetic emotional nomadism," he went on to say. "It is understandable, like anyone, they look for something different from themselves. If in the other they find only something similar, the relationship can't be more than fleeting and compulsive. Stability and fidelity can't exist in the gay world."

Povia stated last December that he has converted two homosexual friends to heterosexuality, both of whom are now married, and said that "one is not born homosexual, but is converted to it." He is also known to have participated in the 2007 Family Day in Rome, organized to defend the right to life and family values.

Homosexual activists, enraged by Tolve's account and Povia's song, have accused Tolve of lying, and have begun a Facebook account to bring together those who wish to prevent Povia from singing at the Sanremo Festival. The organization "Arcigay" has reportedly threatened to disrupt the event.

In addition, European Parliament Deputy Vittorio Agnoleto has reportedly presented the case to the European Court of Human Rights and has asked the Parliament to review the song, claiming that its lyrics constitute a violation of the rights of homosexuals.


In my humble experience, every homosexual individual with which I have really been able to have a heart-to-heart talk has admitted to me that they wish that they were not gay. To be gay means great fear, loneliness, moral emptiness, guilt and self-hatred. To me, this confirms that homosexuality is a psychological abnormality that is not at all "normal" and is definitely not to be encouraged. I don't know if all gay men and women could convert to heterosexuality, but I do know that they would be much happier if they did. We must not enshrine a psychological abnormality and sexual perversion in our schools, laws and society!

PHOTOS: San Francisco Walk for Life

Sunday, January 25, 2009

My experience walking with more than 30,000 fellow pro-lifers at the Walk for Life this last Saturday literally changed my life. I have never been in such a large crowd of happy, caring and dedicated people, all focused on ending the genocide of nearly 50 million unborn babies that have been killed since Roe v. Wade. The speakers before the march were inspiring--my favorite part was when a woman who gotten pregnant at 15 and been pressured by the boy friend-father to abort it, presented the son that she had instead decided to give life. Despite the few counter-protesters who yelled and waved vulgar signs at us, all of the walkers were calm and cheerful. I was especially grateful to see the many demographically at risk girls--ranging from pre-teen to young adult--in attendance, as well as the majority being comprised of minorities.

There was also a great display of religious fervor, with priests reciting mass with bull-horns along the route and praise-bands singing alleluias to the accompaniment of congas and guitars. Creeds and beliefs aside, all were united in prayer and dignified activism. I had no idea that an event like this could bring such a diverse group of people into such solidarity. I strongly implore all who read this to participate in future peaceful events like this and build our coalition of decency to put an end to the slaughter of the unborn and the exploitation of women.

More Stimulus Money Goes To ACORN Organizations Than To Roads/ Bridges

Congressional economists say only $4 billion of the $850 billion stimulus bill will go to roads and bridges in the next two years. Huh? Wasn't Obama's Recovery & Reinvestment Act all about stimulating our infrastructure, stopping those nasty bridge collapses??

House Republican leader John Boehner reports $4.19 billion will go to “neighborhood stabilization activities” with another $750 million for "community stabilization" organizations. This could go to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

Obama really likes ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN. He represented ACORN in court. He trained ACORN employees. He worked with ACORN as a "community organizer"

What did they do for him? ACORN hired people to go door to door to tell people to vote for Obama. This organization, which already gets billions in federal funds, has been accused of voter fraud several times.

Newsbusters reveals where else the stimulus tax cash is going:

* For every dollar that is spent for small business tax relief, $4 are being spent for the maintenance and new grass in Washington, D.C.
* $360 million for sexually transmitted disease education
* $50 million for the National Endowment of Arts
* $726 million for an afterschool snack program
* Office furniture for the public health service
* More money for Amtrak

Dangerous Jihadists or In-the-Wrong-Place-at-the-Wrong-Time: Who Are These Detainees in Gitmo?

Obama and his supporters have painted a sympathetic picture of the former administration’s actions at the US prison camp in Guantanamo Bay. They would have us believe that the almost 250 detainees there were merely minding their own business walking around Iraq and Afghanistan when the big mean Bush soldiers ambushed them, tore them from the arms of their wives and children, took them to a hell-hole and tortured them for years on end.

A report from the liberal Bookings Institution in the National Defense Examiner, however, shows the truth about these terrorist detainees to be quite different:

The report finds that the government alleges the following about the remaining 248 inmates; "81 detainees traveled to Afghanistan for jihad, 130 stayed in Al Qaeda, Taliban, or other guest- or safehouses, 169 detainees took military or terrorist training in Afghanistan, 84 actually fought for the Taliban, many of them on the front lines against the Northern Alliance, 88 were at Tora Bora, 71 detainees’ names or aliases were found on computers, hard drives, physical lists of Al Qaeda operatives, or other material seized in raids on Al Qaeda safehouses and facilities. 64 detainees were captured under circumstances-military surrenders, live combat actions, traveling in a large pack of Mujahideen, or in the company of senior Al Qaeda figures, for example—tat strongly suggest belligerency and 28 detainees served on Osama Bin Laden’s security detail."

It should be noted that bin Laden’s body guards are chosen for their fierce loyalty to bin Laden and their brutality.

Recent admissions from Ramzi Binalshibh and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed also showed their determination to hurt Americans:

“We did what we did; we’re proud of Sept. 11[….]We don’t care about capital punishment. We are doing the jihad [killing all non-muslims] for the cause of God.”

McCain Reprimands GOP Who Opposed Hillary Clinton

Saturday, January 24, 2009

Never mind that she is constitutionally forbidden from being Secretary of State!

McCain, affectionately known by the liberal media as "Maverick," became outraged when Republican Sen. John Cornyn tried to delay Hillary's confirmation. Hillary refused to give disclosure about foreign donors to former president Bill Clinton's "charitable" foundation. Clinton identified over 200,000, but will not identify the foreign investors who paid the charity windfall prices to pay for stock in a struggling Internet firm with links to the Chinese government.

You think that might be important to know?

McCain publicly upbraided Republicans for the attempt at a delay vote. He said, "I think the message that the American people are sending us now is they want us to work together and get to work." Here's my question: Did McCain just want to help corrupt Democrats all along?

TIME Reveals Rumsfeld's "harsher torture techniques” at Gitmo: Playing Christine Aguilera, poking in the chest and pouring water on their heads

In their article expressing the idiocy of Obama ordering Guantanamo Bay closed without any idea of where we will put the 250 extremely dangerous detainees that are currently there (Obama Orders Gitmo Closed. Now the Hard Part), TIME scandalously refers to the inmates being tortured at the hands of the State Department. Luckily, we don't have to take TIME magazine's or the Nancy Pelosi's definition on what constitutes torture.

TIME has also published an exclusive article dissecting a Top Secret 84-page document outlining the "torturous techniques" used to extract information from Mohammed al Qahtani, the famous "20th hijacker" who was slated to participate in the 9/11 attacks but was not able to get into the US in time. They gleefully boasted that "a pentagon official who has seen the log describes it as 'the kind of document that was never meant to leave Gitmo.'"

Despite their sensational framing, the actual techniques revealed in this Top Secret document are laughably mild (Keep in mind that Islamic terrorist groups have been found to use electrocution and mutilation of genitals, cutting off of limbs and beheadings for their interrogation--and of course just murdering--techniques.):

  • Solitary confinement

  • Forced shaving of hair

  • “Mild, non-injurious physical contact such as grabbing, poking in the chest with finger”

  • Playing Christine Aguilera music of dripping water on detainee’s head to make sleeping difficult

  • Performing a puppet show for detainee satirizing their involvement with al-Quaeda

  • Taking the detainee to a room decorated with pictures of 9/11 victims, American flags and red lights and taping a picture of a 9/11 victim to his trousers.

  • Making the detainee stand for the US National Anthem.

  • Pouring bottles of water over detainee’s head when he refuses to drink

  • Placing a female service-woman in the same room with the detainee

  • Placing a dog in the same room with the detainee

  • Strip-searches and making detainee stand nude

  • Making detainee bark like a dog at pictures of terrorists

  • Hanging pictures of “scantily-clad women around his neck”
TIME then reports that these “harsher measures” are discontinued after five days of use when Washington lawyers raise questions about their use and efficacy. TIME is also surprised by the intensely detained medial and behavior logs kept on these detainees (recording every instance of the prisoner eating, sleeping, going to the bathroom, exercising, etc.) and the "spectacular concern about [their] health" (with medical exams as much as three times a day).

This is Abortion

Friday, January 23, 2009

Tommorow I will be participating in the Walk for Life through San Francisco, protesting the more than 1.8 million unborn babies that are killed every year (nearly 1/3 of every conceived baby) in the selfish name of inconvenience. If anyone you know is considering doing this horrible thing, please make them watch this video first before they go through with it:

- B-Media:

Anita O’Shea, spokesperson for the Bay Area Coalition for Reproduction Rights says “The ‘Walk for Life’ is part of a multi-pronged rightwing movement that includes bigots in suits as well as armed, vigilante Minutemen, clinic bombers, and gay bashers…..We must stop the blame game against women, immigrants and queers before the ultra-right gains momentum.”

Let me know if you see any armed vigilantes or clinic bombers! Good luck!

Obama Orders Gitmo Closed,No Clue What to Do With 250 Terrorists Currently There

While Obama and his supporters are celebrating his executive order to close the popularly criticized Guantanamo Bay prison for its scandalous interrogation techniques (which included at worst, keeping prisoners awake with Christina Aguilera music and making them stand for the US national anthem in a room full of pictures of 9/11 victims), they are now back to the dilemma that President Bush faced just after 9/11: What do you do with enemy combatants who have been captured on the battlefield, who continually express their desire to destroy America and have proven their danger to us if released through major acts of terrorism and whom, if tried in civil courts (which has never been done with captured enemy combatants in the history of the United States anyways), would likely be let go scott-free?

(There is also the fact that these detainees contain valuable information regarding Al-Qaeda plans that can prevent future acts of terrorism, but Obama doesn’t seem too concerned about that…)

Because of the extremely dangerous nature of almost all of the 250 detainees currently in Gitmo—including the hard-core jihadist Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who masterminded the 9/11 attacks—Obama is having a hard time figuring out what to do with them: Europe doesn’t want them, their home countries either don’t want them or will release them back into terrorist activities and most states don’t want such dangerous and politically incendiary criminals within their territory. The only exception seems to be the Democrat Rep. John Murtha (famous for calling his constituents racists and rednecks) who has said he will take them in Pennsylvania, though there are no high-security prisons in his district. Another (much more sane and responsible) representative is introducing a bill that outlaws the release of a known terrorist into the U.S. But if not on our soil, who does America pawn off their Pandora’s box to?

As Obama and his supporters dance on the tomb of Gitmo, it would be well for them to put down their platitudes and opinion polls and consider the security of our nation. As it’s going, I’m wondering how soon the next 9/11 will happen.

Tips For Better Political Blogging

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Leave your own tips in a comment and I'll include them at the bottom of the post! Let's get a good discussion going.

  • Be Positive As Much As Possible- Combine politics and news and all you get is negativity. Good uplifting and interesting stories are refreshing.
  • Be Funny- If you don't know how, as is the case with the author of littlegreenfootballs.com, mix things up with some videos of a cool rock concert or picture from the Hubble telescope.
  • Know Your Place- People don't trust the internet. You will never earn your right as an authority on anything, so have good sources and photo evidence for everything.
  • Be Brief and Clear- John Galt takes longer to say things than I do, but his posts are much more interesting which more than makes up for it.
  • Learn Some Graphic Design- I'm sick of scrolling down a page to get to the actual content. Remember, less is more. Get rid of those cumbersome googleads. They only get you like $4 a month anyway.
  • Never Mention Opposition Journalists' Names- But always mention the new source, CNN or whatever- unless the journalist is already a celebrity. Why add popularity to an obscure opponent? If it's an ally always mention the name and news source.
  • Do The Big Scoops- Sick of reading the same headlines on every blog? So am I. It feels great to be the first to blog about something important, like how GoodSensePolitics broke Tom Hanks Bigoted Tirade and Obama Messiah Book Required Reading For Schools
  • Team Up- You'll have more free time. Build a community with other blogs, like DNA and link to their blogs as they link to yours.
  • Be Interactive- People like to express their political opinion and feel like they were heard. They feel even better if they are responded to. What more can you provide than just a comment section, which few read?
  • Keep Evolving- No business can last if it isn't trying new things. Look at what others are trying, and also come up with your own ideas. Keep in mind what search-engine keywords lead people to your site.
  • Use Pictures & Videos More Than You Think You Should- You'd be surprised how much difference it makes. Adhere to Fair Use laws because owners of copyrighted stuff will be happy to torpedo you, like how Associated Press went after SnappedShot.
  • Use Key Words And Be Histrionic- Good journalists are good journalists because they know those certain words that make the title shine. The title needs to suck readers in. If something is "controversial," say it is "completely outrageous." Don't use unfamiliar words like "histrionic."
  • Be A Leader, Carry A Big Stick- Inspire followers with natural leadership and knock the opposition down easily, but don't sound vicious or hateful. This means good sound arguments and some classy ridicule, like how Newsbusters.org ridiculed Chris Matthews for saying Obama "gives me a tingle up the leg." Run with the "Obama Chosen One" angle.

Outrage: Students Treated To Rush Limbaugh

Edison Middle School in Wisconson meant to play Obama's inauguration over the school loudspeaker. What they accidentally played was the Rush Limbaugh's show. Yes, this is national news.

Liberal parents and TV commentators were of course outraged that their children were exposed to conservative opinions. Chris Matthews blasted Limbaugh after Limbaugh said, "I hope Obama fails" because he's liberal. Matthews took the quote out of context, as he tends to do, and asserted that Limbaugh "hates this country."

The school and the liberal media placed blame on the radio station for the accident, which raises the question, "Why are conservative opinions even allowed to be broadcast?" That's a good question. You'd think we'd have safe-guards by now, perhaps computer chips inserted into childrens' ears to block any hateful speech that arises, words like "Obama fails." Teacher Amanda Grigg emailed the station to let them know that the children were "shocked, angered and saddened by the interruption."

It's a breach of copyright to play a radio show over the school loudspeaker by the way. But Limbaugh's characteristic graciousness shown through, as he offered to give a guest civics lesson to the students free of charge.

Police: The Traffic Ticket Industry

An Arizona County removed experimental cameras to catch speeders recently because it didn't generate enough revenue. The sherrif called the $12,391 they earned over four months "paltry." Half the offenders caught actually ended up paying. At the same time, traffic collisions increased 16%.

This caught my eye, having lived in Germany for two years where speeding cameras are all over the place. In Germany, if you get "blitzed", you can be sure someone is going to pay the ticket. They have their ways. I found these cameras actually made the roads safer. It's like a cop sitting there 24/7. Also, police could spend their time looking for drunk drivers and actual criminals.

But doesn't this case in Arizona prove the old cliche that police make their money from speeding tickets? They can't even afford to let cameras catch speeders so they can go out fight real crime!

Obama Halts Tribunal Against 9/11 Plotters

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Just hours after taking office, President Obama ordered a 120-day halt in all pending Gitmo tribunals including the cases against five 9/11 plotters. Will he let them go free?

Public opinion is split on closing Gitmo.

Update: Murtha offered to take in these prisoners of "cold-blooded murderers" into his district. Those "racist red-necks" won't mind anyway will they?

Racist, Divisive Prayer at Obama Inauguration Draws Controversy

Obama brought in another of his favorite radical Black preachers to give the closing prayer for his $170 million inauguration (most of which will be paid for by you, the taxpayer). Rev. Joseph Lowery shamefully concluded his activist speech-prayer with the following racially divisive comments:
Lord,[...]we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around -- (laughter) -- when yellow will be mellow -- (laughter) -- when the red man can get ahead, man -- (laughter) -- and when white will embrace what is right.
Rev. Lowery's clever rhyming has sparked off another fire-storm of controversy in likes of the earlier one surrounding Obama's support of another radical Black preacher Jeremiah Wright (with his "God @%$# America!" comments. It will again be hard for Obama to deny his sympathies with the hate-speech rhetoric of some of the more extreme in the Black community, but there is no doubt that he (and his media) will.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be ashamed of his former partner Rev. Lowery and Obama for this hateful, divisive prayer just at the moment when our nation claims to have achieved a great victory in racial tolerance. Dr. King prayed for a day when all Americans "will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Rev. Lowery's prayer put us back in the 60s, a society divided race against race, slinging hate-speech back and forth. Out society has moved on, why can the Reverends Wright, Lowery and others not? Are they fighting to bring it back? Do they not realize that it was the White vote that made the inauguration of the first Black man possible yesterday?

San Francisco Retaliates For Prop-8 By Taxing Church

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

The city of San Fransisco has taxed the Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco $15 million in property transfer taxes following an internal restructuring of the archdiocese, claiming that no viable exemptions could apply to the church. They claim an internal restructuring of property in a church is a "sale," something no one has before dared claim.

Phil Ting, the Gavin-Newsome appointed assessor responsible for this outrageous tax, supported the September 5th "Join the Impact" protest which called for taxes against pro-prop-8 churches. He spoke out against Proposition 8 at an API news conference, where he called on everyone to "fight and stand up for what's right." He attended a fundraiser hosted by the mayor to counter prop-8. His name appears on a google cache as having donated to Equality California PAC against Prop 8.

This apparent retaliation against the Catholic Church for supporting the proposition is not surprising. Religion is the target for these militants, sweeping away constitutional rights. Just yesterday Assemblyman and gay activist Ammiano joked that anti-prop-8 Gov. Schwarzennager found him a place to live with a "nice Mormon family."

Obama, America Fails Martin Luther King Test

Monday, January 19, 2009

The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke words as true and poignant as any of our nation’s founding fathers when he said:

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.’ […]I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Dr. King’s inspired “dream” is the American Dream: That regardless of their age, sex, race, religious creed or appearance, all Americans will be equally judged by their personal character and fair according to their own abilities.

With the election of President Barack Hussein Obama, America has shown that she is still far from reaching Dr. King’s—and her own—ideal. Of all the major candidates vying for president in 2008, Obama was by far the least qualified. His past political experience consists of only three terms in the Illinois State Senate and one incomplete term in the U.S. Senate, and absolutely no executive experience leading any entity, government or private.

Obama also wasn’t voted president for the content of character. Revealed close relations (private and business) with the domestic terrorist William Ayers, convicted money-launderer and fraudulent government contractor Tony Rezko and other thugs from the corrupt Chicago political machine reveal a history of poor judgment. And bold-faced lies regarding his prior knowledge of the inflammatory teachings of the disgraced Rev. Jeremiah Wright along with clearly falsified birth records reveal a strong tendency to dishonesty for political expediency. No, Barack Obama clearly was not elected President regardless of his skin color, because he was the best man for the job; He was elected because America wanted a Black President.

This racist motivation in America is further emphasized by the fact that whenever anybody points out the great many shortcomings of Obama they are labeled as a racist, accused of opposing him just because his is Black. But America clearly has no problems having a Black person in a government office. We have had two federal Supreme Court Justices, several high ranking cabinet officials, many many federal and state legislators and state and local officials that are Black. Had Colin Powell (who is also Black) run for president, it is almost certain that he would have beaten John McCain for the Republican nomination. America has come a long way with racism over the years: From enslaving men and women because of the color of their skin to denying them full rights; Today we blindly elect them as president.

America is sure to pay dearly for this latest instance of racism and ignorance. The proverbial race card that trumped Obama to presidency concealed a man who was not only one of the most inexperienced but also ideologically the most extreme liberal in the senate this last year, who holds an agenda very dangerous to our country. Through his speeches and writings, Obama shows a strong determination to push our country towards much greater socialism, bureaucracy and higher taxation and government spending to bring us in line with the failing socialist experiments of Europe. This departure from the principles and ideals that made America the most powerful nation in the world will destroy our traditional work ethic, drastically devalue our currency and cripple our economy much more than it already is.

Obama’s stated disdain for our military and intelligence programs (as evidenced by his ridiculously unqualified pick for Chief of the CIA) along with his clear sympathies for anti-American regimes and world government will leave our homeland open to another attack of the magnitude of 9/11, or worse. And the cabinet and administration officials Obama has picked range from his corrupt buddies from the Chicago political machines to recycled paper-pushing bureaucrats from the disgraced Clinton administration: His new Treasury Secretary cheated on his taxes for four years, his new Attorney General convinced Clinton to pardon known criminals and terrorists, his new Ambassador to the U.N. wants America to give up her sovereignty to world government, and his new Chief of Staff vindictively sends dead fish to his political opponents.

May God bless us that this nightmare that was never Dr. King’s “dream” may last only four years and have as little permanent damage on this great nation as possible.

Photos of "Messiah" Obama Book

Saturday, January 17, 2009

After trying several bookstores, I was finally able to find a copy of Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope. Either Principal David Ackerman had already bought them all out to provide each of his teachers with a copy, or other people are falling for this cult worship hook, line and sinker. Here are a few pictures I snapped with my cell phone (sorry for the poor quality) of some of the pictures in the book.

Obama being spoken to by "Hope" in church, with a tear running down his cheek...

Obama praying, with a butterfly resting on his casped hands and a halo about his head...

The "Messiah" Obama picture, with arms outstretched to the world and sparkling stars (or magic dust?) gathering about his hands and body.

Here is an interesting site that features this and much more religious cult worship of Obama.

Tom Hanks Bigoted Tirade Against Mormons

Friday, January 16, 2009

Any Tom Hanks fans out there? You probably didn't know that he is Executive Producer for HBO's hateful "Big Love," which portrays Mormonism as a dangerous polygamist cult, confusing FLDS and LDS. Well the "nicest guy in Hollywood" went on an appalling tirade wednesday over Proposition 8:

"The truth is this takes place in Utah [false], the truth is these people are some bizarre offshoot of the Mormon Church [false, that's only in your bigotted show, Tom], and the truth is a lot of Mormons gave a lot of money to the church [false, zero money was given to the church over this] to make Prop-8 happen. There are a lot of people who feel that is un-American, and I am one of them. I do not like to see any discrimination codified on any piece of paper, any of the 50 states in America, but here's what happens now. A little bit of light can be shed, and people can see who's responsible [of course the actual voters aren't responsible, because the vote will be overturned soon anyway], and that can motivate the next go around of our self correcting Constitution[wait, are you saying that our constituional processes are motivated by who supported which campaigns?], and hopefully we can move forward instead of backwards. So let's have faith in not only the American, but Californian, constitutional process[destroying the people's vote is very constitutional].”

Our Constitution Still Matters!

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

This Tuesday, Barack Hussein Obama is scheduled to be sworn in illegally as the 44th president of the United States. Illegally because our Constitution specifically requires that presidents be born in the United States and not only was he not born in the United States (according to several witnesses including his own grandmother), he has submitted a phony certificate of live birth (which were given to babies that weren't born in America anyways).

Do the people of America not see what great deception is happening right before their eyes? Our government is picking and choosing what parts of our laws and constitution they want to follow, and which they don't. Hillary Clinton is also constitutionally inelegible to serve in Obama's cabinet because she is a senator, but since that rule in the constitution has been disregarded many times by Democrats and Republicans alike, no one is even considering it. If I remember right, if our government wants to disregard something in the constitution they must first get the people to repeal it by a Constitutional Ammendment. Remember that? Back when the peopel controled their government and not the other way around?

And then just today we hear that the man Obama has picked to lead the US Treasury, IRS and Secret Service has been cheating on his taxes for four years and knowingly employed an illeagal alien as housekeeper. Does no one in the government have honesty and integrety any more? Why are we not teaching those principles in our schools now, instead of promoting homosexuality, socialism and international soverignty?

Gays Publish Maps Of Prop-8 Donors' Homes

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Hitler would be proud.

Thanks to the California Secretary of State, it has never been easier to automatically generate hitlists of people who voted a certain way. They got maps in San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and Orange County. Many of the targets donated less than $50.

UPDATE: LA Times links its readers to the Google-supported hitlist. Journalism integrity we would expect from that rag.

Gay Bishop To Give Inaugural Prayer: 'Prayers Have Been Too Christian'

Update: Looks like the prayer didn't make it on HBO. Oh d-d-dear!

After the gay agenda screamed and cried over moderate Rev. Rick Warren's invitation to give the invocation at Obama's swearing in, Obama easily mollified them by inviting gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson to pray at a Jan. 18 ceremony.

Much to their delight, the "Christian Bishop" makes it clear that "this will not be a Christian prayer, and I won’t be quoting Scripture or anything like that." He says he is "horrified" at how "specifically and aggressively Christian" past inaugural prayers have been. Rather than scripture or religion, he says he is looking for inspiration from the 12-step program he attended for his alcohol addiction.

If you are wondering how conservatives, or just anyone who isn't a gay activist reacted to this, don't ask the New York Times.

"Messiah" Obama Book Required Reading in California School

A client of mine expressed her extreme frustration over discovering that her children's school principal (David Ackerman at Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, California) is requiring that the controversial book
Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope be read in every classroom as part of a mandatory curriculum in celebration of President-Elect Obama. Upon examining this book for herself, this mother was horrified to find a propaganda-laden story describing Obama with tears in his eyes, being called forth by a God-figure called "Hope" to lead the nation to their salvation first as a prophet (the book compares him by name to Joseph of Egypt) and then as a "Messiah."

She also described to me a picture of Obama kneeling in anguished prayer with the rays of "Hope" shining down on him from heaven, more than a clear allusion to Christ suffering in the garden of Gethsemane for the sins of mankind. The final picture, she described, depicts Obama hands outstretched and glory shining in rays from his body, the classical Christ image of Christian iconography.

Upon discussing this with the school's principle, this concerned mother was told that all history is biased anyways (citing Jefferson's supposed illegitimate children) and he felt that this book was appropriate for teaching children about the historical significance of Obama and that was that.

I have heard of Obama being jokingly referred to as the "Messiah" of liberals, but I had no idea it went this far. We are to keep religion out of schools, except when it blasphemously supports a liberal, socialist political figure?! Parents, please check with your children and their teachers what they are being taught in school. It will not be long until homosexual, socialist or anti-religious propaganda disguised as a children's book will be fed to your innocent child by their teacher, mandated by a corrupt state board of education.

UPDATE: I received the following email from another concerned mother:

I am glad I am not the only person that had an issue with this book. I am all for learning facts, but this book goes a little too far. I checked it out from the library and read it, then went and spoke with Mr Ackerman with my concerns, he respectfully disagreed and told me he purchased this book (one for each grade level) to be read in every class (at Oak Knoll at least).

My kids will be going to the library during the reading and discussion of this particular book.

Call to Conservative Activism!

Saturday, January 10, 2009

In light of Kingfisher's post on Conservative Hollywood finally coming out and making their views known, I thought that I should repost this dialogue I heard on the Rush Limbaugh show about what we as individual Americans can and should do to fight the terrible and destructive changes in motion in our government and society. I especially agree with him that popular culture (the media, Hollywood, public schools, etc) is currently decidedly against conservative ideals and the only way we will turn that around is by being activists for decency and sanity; speaking out to our friends and neighbors about our views and increasing our own media footprint. I believe that we have a moral obligation to use all of our influence to set this country right again.

CALLER: I'm a fairly new listener, just started last year when the election really got kicking good, and I realized I need to get more involved. How can an individual like I, who's an individualist and believes in individuals and the American way, how can we stop what we just heard this morning?

RUSH: Well, now, see, it's a great, great question, because you have to have realistic goals. It may not be possible. I don't know how we're going to stop this for a couple of years. Now, hear me out on this, Sandra, because this is a very important question. Elections have consequences. I don't know how we're going to stop this. I haven't seen yet any evidence from our Republican Senate and House minorities that they're really interested in stopping any of it. What I've seen so far, and it's going too far, it's outta hand, there are too many people who are saying, "We need to step aside and halt our criticism. We need to hope the new president and his administration have success and so forth. We want to work together with them." This is politics and it's the future of the country, and this is not how these guys are going to win votes in 2010. This plan that Obama has, anybody who's on our side of the aisle who has any degree of education and experience and knowledge of history knows full well the disaster that awaits us. He's going to get 95% of what he wants early on, folks, because of this attitude, the Republicans, "Oh, we hope he succeeds. Oh, we can't be seen as critics, oh, no, no, that will not help us with the minority vote in 2010, 2012."

All that's bunk. We stand up for what's right and what we believe in or we cave. Right now our side is in cave mode and they're out of fear. That means, Sandra, it's up to us, as it always is. So what can you do? Well, I'm going to tell you three things that you can do, and number one, and this is true for every one of us out there. You have got to stand firm in what you believe in, live your life that way, vote when you have the chance to vote that way, and you have to not be afraid to talk to people that disagree with you about it. The people that care about this are the ones that have the chance to make changes. The people out there watching MTV and doing other things, forget them, because they're not engaged. They show up every election. Now, don't forget 'em, but that's another thing we gotta do, we've got to somehow assert ourselves into the popular culture. Popular culture right now is just accepted as liberal, there's not any contention, there's no disagreement. And the people that only know America via popular culture are seeing nothing but anti-Republican, anti-conservative, anti-Bush, pro-liberal, pro-cultural rot. They see it all over the place all the time, they think it's normal. Anybody who disagrees with it is the enemy. It's unrealistic to expect those people every election to all of a sudden go ahead and vote for a conservative. So that's a project.

A guy named Andrew Breitbart and his website in California is spearheading that with some help from others, but what can you do, Sandra? Don't live in a cocoon. You have no idea how many people you will influence just by virtue of the way you live your life, just by virtue of the way you communicate with people. If you believe in it, try to change people's minds. It may lead to some arguments. You may think it's pointless; you may think it's fruitless. Another thing to do is keep listening to this program, and I say this in all sincerity. This program will keep you inspired, motivated, and happy. This program will keep you armed. This program, my newsletter, website, and this program will keep you up to speed, and it will give you the inspiration to continue to go out and do this. It's the country we're talking about, right? It's talking about the things we believe in, the future, for those of you that have kids and grandkids. I've got nieces and nephews, you care about the future, this is what it's all about. And we're heading to a disaster here, and depending on how deep this disaster penetrates our country, it could take a generation to turn this stuff around. If they get national health care, folks, that's a biggie. They're going to get Supreme Court nominations, I told you before the election, this stuff matters, elections have consequences. Okay, yeah, we're in a hole. But I'm not going to be on the bus when it goes over the cliff.

Now, I mentioned yesterday, here's something else you can do, something I did. You know, a lot of people have asked me, "Where did you learn?" People ask me all the time, "What did you do? How did you learn what you learn?" Well, family, obviously. But, man, there's so much brilliant conservative thought out there, and a lot of people have heard about it, a lot of people haven't, a lot of people don't have access to it. We've got a new partner here at EIB, the Heritage Foundation. These are think tank specialists, they're scholars, scientists, economists, demographers, and they are brilliant, and they work, some of them, in the basements of anonymity, churning stuff out that, if you can have access to, a world of knowledge is open to you that you didn't know existed. You're not going to find this stuff in the mainstream media; you're not going to find it in the library; you're not going to find it in the places you would normally seek to go. They've got a website www.AskHeritage.org. You can become a member of this. There are 400,000 people who are, all across the country. Go to this website. We link to it also at RushLimbaugh.com. AskHeritage.org.

Ask them anything, and they'll find the answer to your question in all of the digitized research on their servers. I mean it's just waiting. This stuff is not taught in schools. This is crucial. If you're a homeschooler, AskHeritage.org. I've talked about the Heritage Foundation over the years, because they have been invaluable to me. I'm an instinctive conservative. I always knew what conservatism was. I always knew what liberalism was. I never have had any doubts. What people like the Heritage Foundation enabled me to do was to explain and understand why my instincts were what they were, and my family as well, of course. But you can't just have one source: www.AskHeritage.org. This is a gold mine, my friends, and wait 'til you join and play around with this. I mean from any topic you want on conservatism, be it the economy, foreign policy, war on terror, military matters, they've got perhaps one of the greatest libraries on Ronald Reagan, what would Reagan do in a circumstance, if that intrigues you, AskHeritage.org.

So Sandra, there's all kinds of things you can do, but all the rest of you just interact with people and don't be afraid to be who you are. And be prepared to have people offended by how confident you are in what you believe. That's something that offends people more than anything else. Most people don't have the confidence to think they're sure of things. When you come along and you're sure of things that's going to intimidate people. "Nobody could be that sure." 'Cause everybody's been conditioned to think that there are two sides to everything. There aren't. There's right and there's wrong. And wrong is invalid. We don't have to give wrong the time of day just to be fair, just like we don't have to give evil the time of day just to be fair. Just like we don't have to give defeat a chance on the battlefield just to be fair. But so many people are so wishy-washy, "Well, you know, I can understand why we should, but on the other hand I don't think we should offend, but on the other hand..." you get frustrated dealing with these people. But it can be worth it.

Open Thread: Teaching Children About America

Friday, January 9, 2009

I have been thinking a lot lately about my children and how important it is that I teach them about their rights and duties as Americans. Goodness knows they won't learn any of that in our public schools! When I think of what I was taught, my mind goes back to a cassette tape my parents gave me when I was a little kid called Take Your Hat Off When the Flag Goes By. I can still remember the Preamble to the Constitution word for word because of the song they set it to, as well as "George Washington was a very good man," "free enterprise," "checks and balances" and "We hold these truths."

I was wondering what materials any of you have used and recommend for educating your children the right was about America. Please feel free to comment and discuss.

Two Quotes

“It is our duty to concentrate all our influence to make popular that which is sound and good, and unpopular that which is unsound. ‘Tis right, politically, for a man who has influence to use it. …”

“Even this nation will be on the very verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground, and when the Constitution is upon the brink of ruin, this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean, and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction.”

Both of these quotes were taken from President Ezra Taft Benson’s “Our Divine Constitution,” (Nov. 1987). The first quote was published in History of the Church, 5:286. The second was spoken by Joseph Smith on 19 July 1840, and was recorded by Martha Jane Knowlton Coray; The manuscript is in the Church Historian’s Office in Salt Lake City, UT.

Prop-8 Supporters Sue For Unconstitutional Disclosure Of Donors

Thursday, January 8, 2009

UPDATE: The media claims Calif. gay marriage foes want donors anonymous. This is UNTRUE! They only want the law modified to protect people from harassment. This might mean disclosing only names instead of addresses and employers, but it is NOT necessarily anonymous. Also, nice charged language: 'gay marriage foes' instead of 'Prop-8 supporters.'

Excellent. ProtectMarriage.com and the National Organization for Marriage California teamed up to file lawsuits against the California secretary of state's office to remove all donations for the proposition from its Web site. It also requests that all "all similarly situated persons" shouldn't be bound by the state's unconstitutional disclosure laws.

One woman had her life threatened, many have receiving harassing phone calls and emails, one man had fliers passed around town besmirching his character, temples have received domestic terrorism, windows have been smashed, people have been blacklisted, and many have lost jobs, according to the suit.

The First Amendment Coalition and ACLU, ironically, have supported this attack on basic free speech rights of prop-8 supporters, slamming this lawsuit. Ironic.

The suit further explains: court precedent holds that if disclosure of campaign contributions resulted in economic reprisals or threats of physical coercion against members, that disclosure can be overturned or restricted.

I've detailed some unconstitutional attacks on prop-8 supporters here.

This effort to stop intimidation of free speech will be more successful if we try to modify the Politcal Reform Act of 1974 rather than having it overturned. What is the point of disclosing addresses and employers except to encourage harassment? Of course I don't expect capricious liberals to believe this, but this transcends the gay marriage argument and gets right to the heart of democracy. How can the people rule if they can't speak without the government encouraging harassment?

S.F. Detectives Forced To Take "Transgender Training"

San Fransisco promoted a transsexual detective. This officer had little experience and got lower scores than 18 others on the test, yet was chosen above all the others for promotion.

So just to maker sure they were politically correct enough, the city decided to force all detectives working around him/her to be instructed by him/her for 820 total hours on how to be "tolerant" of him/her. Interesting connection to the transgender activist Police Commission President at the bottom of this page.

Children of Gay Parents, the Effects

Repost of an excellent review by Pearl Diver:

For those who believe that same-sex “marriage” is just as good as traditional marriage for the raising up of healthy, well-rounded, emotionally stable children, Out From Under:The Impact of Homosexual Parenting will prove to be an enlightening read. Author Dawn Stefanowicz was raised by a homosexual father who, despite attempting to maintain the appearance of monogamy, “continued cruising for anonymous sex” and “lived with depression, control issues, anger outbursts, suicidal tendencies, and sexual compulsions.”
As a result of first-hand experience living under a permutation, Dawn is a strong advocate for marriage between one man and one woman.
“Not only do children do best with both a mother and a father in a lifelong marriage bond, children need responsible monogamous parents who have no extramarital sexual partners. Parental promiscuity, abuse and divorce are not good for children. If same-sex marriage is legalized, a person, couple or group who practice any form of sexual behavior would eventually be able to obtain children through previous heterosexual relationships, new reproductive technologies, and adoption due to the undefined term sexual orientation. This would force all public and private adoption agencies to hand over children into experimental relationships or risk charges of discrimination.”
Exposure to a plethora of pernicious elements that often plague the homosexual lifestyle left Dawn feeling “outraged at the incidences of same-sex domestic abuse, sexual advances toward minors, and loss of sexual partners as if people were only commodities.”
“From a young age, I was exposed to explicit sexual speech, self-indulgent lifestyles, varied GLBT subcultures and gay vacation spots. Sex looked gratuitous to me as a child. I was exposed to all inclusive manifestations of sexuality including bathhouse sex, cross-dressing, sodomy, pornography, gay nudity, lesbianism, bisexuality, minor recruitment, voyeurism and exhibitionism. Sado-masochism was alluded to and aspects demonstrated. Alcohol and drugs were often contributing factors to lower inhibitions in my father's relationships.”
Dawn now champions traditional marriage in a big way. She recognizes and abhors the soul and spirit-rending of the innocent children who are subject to “a” relationship defined from a desire for special recognition of sexual orientation.
“I believe same-sex marriage will dispose of unique values esteemed within marriage as recognized throughout history. Marriage needs to remain a societal foundation that constitutes, represents, and defends the inherently procreative relationship between the husband and the wife for the welfare of their biological children. Children need consistent appropriate boundaries and secure expressions of emotional intimacy that are not sexualized in the home and community.” [emphasis added]
