Roundup

Are you better off than you were 4 years ago when the Democrats took control of Congress? January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.  Before that the Democrats pushed for plans that would inevitably drive high foreclosure rates but they insulated the lenders from risk.  Horrible, horrible idea.  Bush tried to reform Fannie and Freddie and was blocked.  Who took the third highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?  Barack Obama.

Remember, Nancy Pelosi said that the Democrats “are prepared to govern and ready to lead.”  When did she say that?  November 8, 2006.

An interesting piece by Pastor Timothy about Christianity and the Godfather.  A snippet:

The movie is a great example of what happens when sin goes unrestrained. You have every manner of sin being delved into by those who believe they live in a protected world due to the fact that Godfather Don Corleone has all the judges in his back pocket. That is how Michael can gun down one of the mob bosses and a police captain and get away with it. When you own those who are charged with keeping the law, then you can keep them from using the law against you.

The movie’s popularity is due to the fact that it does appeal to our sin nature. We want to be in control of the world in which we live and The Godfather shows us a world where the Don controls a good portion of his own world. Of course, he has to use intimidation, fear, the threat of having your favorite pet’s head severed and dumped in your bed over night, death, etc., in order to control that world. But wouldn’t we love to control our world in such a way?

Stunner: Congresswoman wheedles lobbyist for money – your tax dollars at work.  The audacity of her shakedown is bad enough, but I’m she was so bold / stupid as to leave it on a voicemail.  This is getting major coverage in the mainstream media, right?

Communist atheist Mao Zedong killed 45 million people – It was really quite gruesome.  The numbers are staggering.  Ideas have consequences.  Wasn’t Mao a hero of one of Obama’s top advisors?

Black Conservatives Blast Al Sharpton Protesters – sweet.  Great ideas, but they disagree with Obama & Co. so they must be racists.  Seriously, she was well armed with facts about the impact of Democratic policies on nuclear families and the high rate of abortion in black communities.  The other guy played the “but they’ll be poor” argument to justify his pro-abortion views, which ignores the facts that the abortion kills an innocent human being and we don’t “solve” poverty by killing people inside the womb or outside.

Views of false teachers cause increase in poverty

It is well documented that Liberals fail at basic economic principles.  That would be bad enough, but they then claim that they aren’t to blame and that we just need more Liberalism to increase employment.  See Census Bureau Numbers On Poverty Reflect Moral Crisis in America by false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie.

Now why would Chuck be considered an expert here?  He can’t even run a successful church, despite these facts:

  • Very Liberal “reverend”
  • Very Liberal denomination
  • Very Liberal city and state
  • So why does this guy think he knows how to increase jobs?  Here’s one of their big ideas:

    Promote Decent Work. People should work and work should pay enough to ensure that workers and their families can avoid poverty, meet basic needs, and save for the future.

    Gee, thanks, guys!  Never thought of that one.  But, uh, how are you going to accomplish that?  They call that a principle for reducing poverty but it isn’t a principle at all, it is just a goal.  What incompetence.

    Pro-abort Obama pretends to care about the kids

    See Vote: Biggest vomit line from pro-abort Obama’s speech to school kids today – Jill Stanek.

    Some of the most revolting lines that pro-abortion President Obama delivered:

    1. “Nobody gets to write your destiny but you. Your future is in your hands.”

    2. “So, what I want to say to you today – what I want all of you to take away from my speech – is that life is precious….”

    3. “This is a country that gives all its daughters and all its sons a fair chance. A chance to make the most of their lives. A chance to fulfill their God-given potential.”

    False teachers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie are pro-abortion as well, supporting “partial birth” abortion — aka infanticide (at least in Chuck’s case) — and taxpayer-funded abortions.

    Pro-aborts like Chuck, Jim and Barrack are either ignorant of science and/or moral deviants, because it is a scientific fact that the unborn are unique, living human beings from conception.

    Oh, wait, Chuck and the other “Christians” claim that “God is still speaking;” and that Jesus is pro-legalized abortion, so I guess that settles it.  Nothing like blaspheming the Holy Spirit to rationalize the crushing and dismembering of innocent human beings.

    Read all of the President’s quotes again and add this line: ” . . . unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants.”  It reads like this:

    1. “Nobody gets to write your destiny but you, unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants.. Your future is in your hands, unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants.”

    2. “So, what I want to say to you today – what I want all of you to take away from my speech – is that life is precious, unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants.”

    3. “This is a country that gives all its daughters and all its sons a fair chance, unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants. A chance to make the most of their lives, unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants. A chance to fulfill their God-given potential, unless you are still in your mother’s womb, in which case she can have you destroyed if she wants.”

    Another waste of taxpayer funds by people who don’t understand business

    Government employees who have little, if any, business experience are bound to come up with wasteful ideas.  Here’s another one:

    Via Obama Announces $33 Billion Hiring Tax Credit for Jobs – ABC News.

    Under the president’s proposed tax credit, businesses would receive a $5,000 tax credit for every net new employee that they employ in 2010. The total amount of credit will be capped at $500,000 per firm to ensure that the majority of the benefit goes to small businesses.

    This is simple: While a few companies might hire employees they otherwise wouldn’t have due to these incentives, the vast majority of businesses fall into one of two categories:

    1. Business that don’t have demand for their goods and services and don’t need to hire.  Even with a $5,000 incentive, hiring new employees means they’ll be paying more for wages than necessary.   They won’t use this program.
    2. Businesses that were going to hire anyway.  They had demand for goods and services but didn’t need the additional incentives.  Sure, they’ll cash the checks, but what’s the point?

    Leave the $$ with the taxpayers and let them spend it how they like.  That will stimulate demand and lead to real hiring.  Don’t give it to an inefficient government that will take its cut then waste the rest by giving it to companies that were going to hire people anyway.

    Is this a bigger insult to President Obama or to the UCC? Maybe it’s a tie.

    Race-baiting false teacher Chuck Currie provides a good chuckle with this post: “President Obama is a Christian, and a fairly typical United Church of Christ sort of Christian at that.”

    Uh, is that some sort of defense?  Would Chuck also be a “fairly typical” UCC sort of Christian with his beliefs that:

    • Jesus is not the only way to salvation
    • Jesus is pro-abortion, including partial-birth abortion and taxpayer-funded abortion
    • the Holy Spirit told him and the other Liberals in the UCC that God has changed his stance on marriage, parenting and homosexual behavior (now that’s blasphemy!)
    • the book of John doesn’t belong in the Bible
    • the Gospel of Thomas does belong in the Bible
    • it is acceptable to lie and libel people on blogs as long as you think you won’t get caught
    • Christians  have as much to learn from other religions as they do from us (really?  I don’t remember Jesus saying that . . .)
    • and so much more!

    Ultimately only God knows the hearts of Obama and everyone else.  But Jesus did say to be fruit inspectors — and it was even in the Sermon on the Mount that even theological Liberals claim to love (but don’t really understand):

    Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. (Matthew 7:15–20, ESV)

    Ann Coulter is much more likely than Chuck to be right in her Obama is Not a Muslim post (though Chuck will surely say how mean Ann is as soon and how we need to foster positive dialogue — that is, as soon as he is done calling her a racist KKK sympathizer).

    The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist.

    Leave aside Obama’s fanatical opposition to allowing Illinois hospitals to save the lives of babies with God-given souls inadvertently born alive during abortions. Also leave aside the fact that neither of his parents were Christians. And leave aside his current crop of “spiritual advisers,” which is a collection of Mother Earth worshippers, polytheists and other nonbelievers.

    Now rest from all that “leaving aside.”

    The only evidence for Obama’s Christianity is that he faithfully attended the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years.

    . . .

    This was inadvertently admitted by Obama’s leading butt-boy, Richard Wolffe, on North Korean TV Monday night. Wolffe acknowledged that Wright’s liberation theology was not Christianity, but then forcefully distinguished Obama from the Rev. Wright –- i.e., Obama’s sole character witness for his alleged Christianity.

    Of Glenn Beck’s denunciation of liberation theology as a false religion, Wolffe said: “Is he debating Jeremiah Wright or Barack Obama? They’re two different people. If he wants to debate liberation theology with Wright, he’s got something to talk about. But liberation theology hasn’t been anything espoused by this president.”

    But it was espoused in the only church Obama ever attended regularly — for 20 years, no less — was married in and had his daughters baptized in. The title of Obama’s autobiography came from the title of one of Wright’s sermons and snippets from Wright’s sermons have appeared in Obama’s work.

    So the sole evidence of Obama’s supposed Christianity is his longtime pastor, who everyone admits is a racist nut.

    No sentient human is required to take Obama’s profession of Christianity any more seriously than if it were coming from a 1980s blow-dried, money-grubbing televangelist with a mistress on the side.

    . . .

    Former divinity student Al Gore famously botched a biblical verse, switching God’s instruction that we put heaven before earthly things (“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” Matthew 6:21) by saying we should make the Earth our treasure. (In the druidical religion of liberalism, not separating your recyclables is a sin, but abortion is just a medical procedure.)

    Howard Dean told a reporter his favorite book of the New Testament was Job.

    It took the Democrats’ born-again Christian Jimmy Carter three decades to announce, in 2005, that he didn’t think Jesus would approve of abortion (“unless the mother’s life or health was in danger or perhaps the pregnancy was caused by rape or incest,” etc. etc.).

    Some highly relevant bonus comments from Roxanne (do not miss the closing line!):

    Thee man who shrouds the actual Messiah and talks about parting the waters does not extend the same respect to his own family . While Obama became a wealthy nationally-recognised figure, his aunt was on welfare in Boston and his brother lived in poverty in Kenya (and still does) – like living on a few hundred dollars a yearabject poverty.  His brother’s keeper, Obama is not. Obama does not fare better with strangers: even the New York Times reported that Obama gave more money  to charity as he ran for President and most of those “charitable donations” went to Rev. Wright’s racist church:

    “The Obamas’ returns are striking on a number of levels. They show that the couple made very few charitable contributions, sometimes less than 1 percent of taxable income, until Mr. Obama began his run for the White House.”

    When the New York Times calls a liberal out like that, you know it’s bad.  This is also the same Barack Obama who wanted to (or still wants to) put charities, many of which are religious, under the control of the federal government.   I’m sure that Mr. Constitutional Law is well aware that if charities were run by the government, the Establishment Clause would destroy their religious missions.

    Could the man, despite all this, be Christian?  In a quantum-mechanical, “all things are possible depending on the probabilty density of the electron cloud” way, perhaps.  In a “Only God knows the heart of Man” way, perhaps.  In any way that is meaningful to Christians who vote their values?  Hell, no.

    The audacity of being an abortion survivor

    Please read this whole article about Gianna Jessen, a woman who wasn’t supposed to exist and who Barack Obama thinks could have been legally and morally killed after surviving an abortion. 

    By the way, I don’t mean she was the mother who survived an abortion, she was the baby.

    After being burned alive for approximately 18 hours in the womb from the saline solution, Gianna was delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic. Her medical records state, “born during saline abortion”…this is what caused her Cerebral Palsy.

    From a recent Wall Street Journal article:

    Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a “survivor.”

    Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation. As it was, a startled nurse called an ambulance, and Gianna was rushed to a nearby hospital, where, weighing just two pounds, she was placed in an incubator, then, months later, in foster care.

    As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama twice opposed legislation to define as “persons” babies who survive late-term abortions. Babies like Gianna. Mr. Obama said in a speech on the Illinois Senate floor that he could not accept that babies wholly emerged from their mother’s wombs are “persons,” and thus deserving of equal protection under the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

    When I asked Gianna to reflect on Mr. Obama’s candidacy, she paused, then said, “I really hope the American people will have their eyes wide open and choose to be discerning. . . . He is extreme, extreme, extreme.”

    Mr. Obama has compiled a 100% lifetime “pro-choice” voting record, including votes against any and all restrictions on late-term abortions and parental involvement in teenagers’ abortions.

    To Mr. Obama, abortion, or “reproductive justice,” is “one of the most fundamental rights we possess.” And he promises, “the first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act,” which would overturn hundreds of federal and state laws limiting abortion, including the federal ban on partial-birth abortion and bans on public funding of abortion.

    He is such a uniter.

    This guy really, really likes abortion.  I’m amazed that he is considered a Christian.
