Fox News is excited! So are most Mormons, they claim! It's the new Fiddler on the Roof.
Did Fiddler on the Roof have a song entitled 'F*ck You God'? In other songs, "disease-ravaged villagers lift their spirits by telling God what He can do to Himself (and in which orifices)." You won't see these little details mentioned in the Fox News puff piece, even though they quote other parts of that report. Fox claims most Mormons are actually excited to see the musical. They call it "our Mormon moment." The nay-sayers are just "a more conservative group who views the play as another instance of persecution."
Obviously this musical is just a political attack on Mormons because of Proposition 8.
Fox News gets this extremely wrong scope of Mormon opinion from one blogger, who coincidentally is pro-gay marriage, anti-Mormon, and pro-Aethiesm. Once again, the liberal media goes to anti-Mormons to get facts about Mormons, and they report lies. Fox calls him "a liberal member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" but this blog author is actually a self-proclaimed skeptic: "With shaken faith, he didn't find many informed or sympathetic local church members and therefore contemplated leaving the church. On the Internet he found communities antagonistic toward the LDS Church which didn't encourage him to stay either. Eventually he discovered intellectuals and publications such as Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought and Sunstone Magazine which acknowledged LDS controversies yet helped Dehlin decide to stay in the church."
This musical, by the creators of South Park, teaches "how stories made up on the spur of the moment become religious doctrine" according to Vogue. In other words it teaches us that the Book of Mormon is false and should be ridiculed. Like typical anti-Mormon productions it expounds on supposed Mormon doctrines like: "'God lives on a planet called Kolob' and 'in 1978 God changed his mind about black people'."
Fox News is excited! So are most Mormons, they claim! It's the new Fiddler on the Roof.
The first order of business for Hawaii's new Democrat legislature was to ban religious prayers in the State Senate. The ban follows a threat by the ACLU, and legal advising from the state attorney general that prayer "wouldn't survive a likely court challenge." This is the same Democrat attorney general who crusades for the "constitutional right" of Socialized healthcare.
The Supreme Court has already ruled that the prayers were legal, but radical liberals still complain that the prayers violate the law, that "the government can't display a preference for one particular sect or creed." Prayers should only be allowed "as long as they don't mention a specific deity or religion."
But the prayers only come from "members of the community to speak on any topic of their choosing." Obviously that doesn't display a preference for one particular religion. The ACLU falsely claims they are "decidedly Christian prayers - with reference to Jesus Christ." This is only an attack on free speech.
There is nothing that raises Christianity above other religions here, yet AP only mentions "Christian lawyers" defending the prayers. Is that true?
I read about 5 different blogs by Mormon women every day. (I am not Mormon) The life that they portray on these blogs are just lovely, they have lovely homes, picture perfect kids, loving super attentive husbands, and things seem very normal and calm.This comment by BrookeD on Jezebel blog prompted others to admit their addiction to Mormon blogs. I was surprised to see this at notoriously liberal Salon:
Their lives are nothing like mine -- I'm your standard-issue late-20-something childless overeducated atheist feminist -- yet I'm completely obsessed with their blogs. On an average day, I'll skim through a half-dozen Mormon blogs, looking at Polaroids of dogs in raincoats or kids in bow ties, reading gratitude lists, admiring sewing projects.
I'm not alone, either. Two of my closest friends -- both chronically overworked Ph.D. candidates -- procrastinate for hours poring over Nat the Fat Rat or C. Jane Enjoy It....
Well, to use a word that makes me cringe, these blogs are weirdly "uplifting." To read Mormon lifestyle blogs is to peer into a strange and fascinating world where the most fraught issues of modern living -- marriage and child rearing -- appear completely unproblematic. This seems practically subversive to someone like me, weaned on an endless media parade of fretful stories about "work-life balance" and soaring divorce rates and the perils of marrying too young/too old/too whatever. And don't even get me started on the Mommy Blogs, which make parenthood seem like a vale of judgment and anxiety, full of words like "guilt" and "chaos" and "BPA-free" and "episiotomy." Read enough of these, and you'll be ready to remove your own ovaries with a butter knife.
Indeed, Mormon bloggers like Holbrook make marriage and motherhood seem, well, fun. Easy. Joyful. These women seem relaxed and untouched by cynicism....
Clearly, life for the Mormon wife is not all crafts and cupcakes. Even if it were, I seriously doubt that crafts and cupcakes are all that much fun when you do them all day, every day.
But the basic messages expressed in these blogs -- family is wonderful, life is meant to be enjoyed, celebrate the small things -- are still lovely. And if they help women like me envision a life in which marriage and motherhood could potentially be something other than a miserable, soul-destroying trap, I say, "Right on." I won't be inviting the missionaries inside for hot cocoa now or ever, but I don't plan on stopping my blog habit any time soon. (Emily Matchar)
Liberal politicians and commentators have wasted no time blaming conservative talk show hosts (especially Beck and Limbaugh) and political leaders (especially Palin) on inspiring crazed gunman Jared Loughner. (Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders has actually seized upon the tragedy as an opportunity to send out fund-raising letters.) Nevermind Loughner cited Mine Kampf and the Communist Manifesto as favorite reading on his MySpace page. Nevermind that those closest to him say Loughner never watched the news or listened to talk radio.
The big elephant in the room, of course, is the inconvenient fact that the right is really made up of productive, law-abiding, principled families, while it is the left that regularly vandalizes the property of people they don't agree with calls for Palin and Bush's shooting. (This hypocrisy is certainly on display at every Tea Party rally and the whole California Prop 8 issue.)
Michelle Malkin has created a primer of the "climate of hate" created by liberals from 2000 to 2010 for those left pitifully uninformed by the media.
|The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010|
Rep. Giffords had only 2 subscriptions, one was to Jarred Loughner, who called himself Classitup10. Her channel has since been scrubbed. This provides a possible motive for Loughner's actions and those cryptic Myspace messages he left since October, when Giffords added him.
We know Loughner lashed out at Giffords when she didn't respond to him as her campaign worker in 2007. Similarly no one responded to his insane rants on the internet, and he took that as a personal attack. He fixated more and more on her until he finally attacked her.
He rants about her ignoring him, and his comments become violent threats. (I blurred swear words). I haven't seen a screengrab of Loughner's myspace friends list. He says to someone "You are the only one to message me" and then raves when that person doesn't talk to him, and saying "I'll see you on National TV". The Myspace page is now completely scrubbed:
(AP) The discoveries at his home in southern Arizona, however, provided few answers to a shocked nation, from the victims of Saturday's shooting rampage to lawmakers worried about their safety: What motivated the rampage outside a supermarket that killed six and injured 14?Actually that is pretty clear. Mental insanity. Arizona Star:
The online accounts also contain bizarre discussions of a new currency and literacy, as well as threatening and despairing messages.
“WOW! I’m glad i didn’t kill myself. I’ll see you on National T.v.! This is foreshadow …. why doesn’t anyone talk to me?..” he posted on MySpace Dec. 14.
On Dec. 13, he wrote: “I don’t feel good: I’m ready to kill a police officer! I can say it.”
In a posting on YouTube, Loughner wrote repeatedly about a new currency.
I reported earlier that slain Judge John Roll and Janet Napolitano colluded to destroy state's rights with illegal immigration, and even committed alleged criminal conspiracy together to boost federal rights and diminish states rights.
I had a hunch that this tragic event would be used to bolster federal power over immigration. Democrats want to outlaw any free speech that could be called inciting violence, which is just about anything. Typical liberal hate for free speech. But AP really lays down the hammer on my theory:
An official familiar with the Arizona shooting investigation said Sunday that local authorities are looking at a possible connection between Loughner and an online group known for white supremacist, anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Is it just coincidence that Rep. Gabrielle Gifford and John Roll discussed the surge in border crime at the time of the shooting?
www.sfgate.com- "All of the 21 people appointed by Brown are registered as Democrats. That stands in contrast to former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican who routinely appointed Democrats and independent voters to top positions.
Brown appointed former Santa Cruz Assemblyman John Laird as secretary of the California Resources Agency, which oversees state parks, waterways, forests, fish and wildlife, and other natural resources. Laird is popular among environmental groups in the state and leaders of some of those organizations cheered the announcement.
For another key environmental role, Brown reappointed Mary Nichols to head the California Air Resources Board that is overseeing the state's efforts to combat climate change. Nichols, who has held the post since 2007, released a statement saying she was "delighted" to join the administration.
Nichols served as chairwoman of the board during Brown's second term as governor from 1979 to 1983, and her reappointment was met with praise from environmentalists similar to that for Laird...
Additionally, Brown appointed Marty Morgenstern of Oakland as secretary of the Labor and Workforce Development Agency, which oversees, among other things, the state's unemployment department. He also served in Brown's previous administrations.
The new governor appointed another Oakland resident, Ronald Yank, as the director of the Department of Personnel Administration. The department is essentially the human resources entity for state workers and also leads negotiations on state employee contracts.
Yank, who most recently was a neutral labor mediator, previously has represented public employee unions in contract negotiations, including the state prison guards union, whose members have been working without a contract since 2006...
The governor also made seven appointments to the state Board of Education, leaving only three current members in place.
The appointments included former state Superintendent Bill Honig, who resigned the office in 1992 to face felony conflict-of-interest charges for funneling state Department of Education money to a project his wife ran that encouraged parental involvement in schools. The felonies were later reduced to misdemeanors...
The new board will also include Stanford University Professor Emeritus Michael Kirst and a California Teachers Association union lobbyist Patricia Ann Rucker.
What a group! I can't wait!
Janet Napolitano was alleged as "aiding and abetting" John M. Roll in a criminal conspiracy to "make an example" out of those who try to skirt federal regulations. An IRS audit case in the nineties makes a passionate plea against federal dictatorship and makes shocking allegations of constitutional infringements.
It wasn't the FBI, it was Napolitano who announced that Federal Judge John Roll was among those assassinated in today's shooting. In a very cursory statement she condemned the shooting as "senseless violence."
It could make sense that Roll was the target of today's shooting, because he received death threats. When he ruled that federal illegal immigrant lawsuits against ranch owners could proceed, "talk-radio shows cranked up the controversy and spurred audiences into making threats." Is this the conservative violence that Napolitano warned us all about?
But that was 11 months ago, so why the wait? Just 3 days ago Roll complained that Arizona's recently adopted streamlined method of dealing with illegal immigration is overburdening the judicial system, causing a "judicial emergency.' He sought "permission to delay bringing felons to trial" His crusade against state involvement in illegal immigration continued right until his murder.
So maybe some extremist conservative saw this, decided it's the final straw and wanted him gone? Not so fast! Consider that Napolitano was state governor until recently, when she left to become Obama's Big Sister. She famously slammed Arizona's new immigration law and falsely claimed Arizona's border "is more secure than it has ever been." Many conservatives complained that she turned on state and state's rights and now is a proponent of federal rights. But a court case reveals she teamed up with John Roll long before to diminish states rights.
She was involved in an IRS tax lien against New Life Health Center. New Life was targeted for $4 million after they had placed assets into foreign trusts. “They are conservative Republicans who are active in their community and care about the future of our Country.” A FOIA request determined that a Federal Grand Jury teamed up with the IRS and the US Attorney, violating the 4th amendment. But a Judge ruled the federal government has “sovereign immunity.” The US Attorney refused to settle and allegedly told them:
“This is not an issue of money (Dr. Burns), this is a power issue. We intent on putting you and your Company out of business to make you an example.”
Complaints and lawsuits against the government were thrown out. Counsel filed a FOIA for proof of jurisdiction for the federal government, and when the gov couldn't produce anything, they declared this shows "the 'Application of the United States of America' appears to be fraudulent on its face" and claimed: " a criminal conspiracy of federal officers, employees, and agents in the instant case."
The company made a passionate plea for State’s rights and against federal dictatorship.
It went to the 9th Circuit, and they sent “all books and records” to the the Grand Jury in response to a subpoena. This never reached the court, however, as it was all stolen in the mail. A total of 27 pleadings were stolen from the mail. The Counsel made a criminal complaint against Judge John Roll and Janet Napolitano for “obstruction of justice, jury tampering, perjury, bribery, and conspiracy.” The complaint states “John M. Roll admitted, on the official court record, that he had intercepted” a request for investigation to the Grand Jury that never arrived, along with all other pleadings. The FBI refused to investigate.
“We count 27 counts of mail fraud, 27counts of jury tampering, 27 counts of obstruction of justice,
and 27 counts of conspiracy to commit all of the above, committed by a conspiracy of persons
including, but not limited to, John M.Roll, Janet Napolitano, Robert L. Miskell, and
The complaint against Napolitano says she aided John Roll in these criminal acts of obstruction:
Ms. Janet Napolitano with:
(1) aiding and abetting the obstruction of correspondence
transmitted via first class, certified, and registered
United States Mail, under color of law (25 counts), in
violation of 18 U.S.C. 2 and 1702;
(2) aiding and abetting the act of tampering with a federal
grand jury (25 counts), in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2 and
(3) aiding and abetting obstruction of criminal investigations
(25 counts), in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2 and 1510;
(4) deprivation of fundamental Rights under color of law,
specifically the Right to Petition a lawfully convened
federal grand jury for a formal investigation (25 counts),
in violation of 18 U.S.C. 242;
(5) conspiracy to commit all of the above (25 counts), in
violation of 18 U.S.C. 241 and 371.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't content destroying California, he has some last minute favors to do for his criminal friends. In Clinton fashion, the liberal Governator slashed the prison sentence of Esteban Nunez, son of Democrat Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez who pled guilty to manslaughter for the stabbing death of a man in 2008.
