Oops!

Sometimes I say too much and forget that the best strategy is often to sit back and watch your ideological enemies self-destruct.  Therefore, I take back my criticisms of Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie and his People Of Faith Support President On Contraception Fight Despite Lawsuit post.

Chuck clearly has a well thought out, rational idea. Keep the “war on women” meme going, because it definitely isn’t another one of Obama’s boomerangs.  It certainly isn’t condescending to women — especially religious women — to tell them that they must rely on the government for everything and that it is OK to trample religious freedoms to ensure that all women — and not just 90%+ — have “free” birth control.  After all, Chuck & Co. know that not only is it impossible for women to be self-sufficient, but that they aren’t even capable of buying birth control!

So preach on, Chuck!

That’s what makes the Democrats’ message to American women so strange and unsettling. For the past few months, the Democrats have been accusing Republicans of waging a “war on women” as if some honest disagreements between the parties — over matters like how an “Obamacare” mandate should affect religious institutions or the proper scope of federal law on tribal land — constitute a deliberate GOP campaign to take away women’s rights.

Nothing could be further from the truth, and Republican women have been at the forefront exposing these myths. Let’s face it: Republican women — like us — would never be part of a party that didn’t believe in women’s rights, equal pay for equal work and strong laws against sexual violence. The Republican Party believes in all of those things.

We also believe in something else: We believe that women want to be empowered. We believe that women want independence. We want opportunities. We want an equal chance to succeed — no special favors and no glass ceilings. We want our daughters to have those same opportunities, that same chance to live the American dream. We want our sons to have it, too.

What policies promote freedom, opportunity and self-ownership? Certainly not the Democrats’ Big Government policies. The Democrats showed their hand recently with their “Life of Julia” infographic. The Obama campaign used this to illustrate how a typical woman is dependent on government programs from birth to death — and how the GOP is supposedly undermining those programs.

Hypocrisy: He’s doin’ it right

In a head-scratching example of hypocrisy that is over the top even for him, politics-disguised-as-religion-race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie had the audacity to criticize authentic Christians for exercising their 1st Amendment rights of free speech.  I can’t imagine how even Chuck would think that organized citizens could be guilty of violating the Constitution in this way.

Chuck, of course, is the guy who spits out Democratic talking points and does whole sermons on why illegal immigration should be legal and why the Occupy movement is Christ-like.  Uh, right.

Bonus hypocrisy: I haven’t seen Chuck express concern that the President — an alleged Constitutional scholar — redefined “recess” to appoint his union donor / cronies.

In the United States there are suppose to be no religious tests to hold public office.  That’s right there in the Constitution (a document conservatives claim to love).  But religious conservatives seem to be doing all in their considerable power to decide who the GOP nominee for president will be.  In short, they trying to imposing a religious test on the presidency.  . . .  Otherwise, why are officials of the Southern Baptist Convention like Richard Land weighing in on the GOP nomination process?  We cannot afford to allow our democracy to devolve into a theocracy.  Religious liberty is at stake in 2012.

Michele Bachmann continues to impress

While the Left is content to just call her names (“right-wing loon” seems to be a favorite, and they seem to think of it as a robust rebuttal of her positions), Michele Bachmann is making strides.  See Michele Bachmann Sets A Very High Bar at Right Online (emphasis added).

The whole speech felt like it was only a few minutes. It was funny, fascinating, informative, and powerful. She set the bar very, very high for other candidates.

Her tax lawyer background showed in her speech, as did her faith. She used a dollar bill, folding it to show how Barack Obama’s policies have devalued it 14% and how the federal government borrows 42% of every dollar spent. She had the audience join her so they too can show others.

She hit Obama on something few Republicans ever do — unemployment in the Hispanic and black communities, noting how his policies have hurt the very groups he pledged to help. She focused as well on youth unemployment. Black youth in this country face 40% unemployment this summer and Hispanic youth face over 20%. Astonishing.

Bachmann brought the crowd to its feet multiple times. She pledged that she would not fight until Obamacare is repealed. She tackled medicare reform too. She pointed out that while the Democrats are scaring old people about Republican reforms, the Democrats took $500 billion from Medicare to fund healthcare for the young. She says the GOP needs to start pointing out that Barack Obama intends to bankrupt medicare and force senior citizens into Obamacare.

The speech really was dazzling and not because of the zingers and one liners. It was an extremely substantive speech about how Obama’s policies are hurting the country.

Speaking of real loons, check out this lady.  She plays the ridiculous canard that Bible-believing Christians are opposed to gays loving each other.  Hey, go right ahead, lady.  Just don’t throw glitter on people who don’t support your right to a square circle (oops, I mean “same-sex marriage”).

Why do liberals agree with Ayn Rand?

No, not her economic views and insight into the problems of economic liberalism, but her pro-abortion views.  False teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, who is pro-legalized abortion and wants taxpayer-funded abortions but hypocritically mentions Jesus’ concern for the “least of these” in many of his posts, tries to put down the GOP for agreeing with Rand’s identification of our economic problems — see The GOP’s Love Affair With Ayn Rand.  But who really has the love affair with her godless worldview?

The irony of him agreeing with Rand on abortion is lost on a pro-abort like Chuck.  Legalized destruction of unwanted human beings is the opposite of social justice and about the love Jesus taught about, but it is the #1 goal of fake Christians like Currie and the un-believing liberals who agree with him.

This is a sample video by the deceptively named American Values Network.  They pretend to care about the Bible, but their real god is big government.  And even if they did care about the real Jesus, why aren’t the liberal ACLU-types criticizing them?  Oh, because the only oppose authentic Christianity and/or religious views they disagree with.

Friendly reminders: 1. Conservatives give more money and even blood than notoriously stingy Liberals.  2. Liberals fail at basic economics

Hillbuzz on Herman Cain

In Another reason to like Herman Cain I noted how I appreciated his simply stated, biblically accurate views on homosexual behavior when CBS tried one of their tiresome “gotcha” questions:

In an interview on CBS News:

“I believe homosexuality is a sin because I’m a Bible-believing Christian, I believe it’s a sin. But I know that some people make that choice. That’s their choice.”

Of course, the mainstream media and the far Left will hate him for that.  But note that Cain (and every Christian I know) aren’t trying to get in the middle of the lives of gays.  We take a live-and-let-live approach, only getting involved when the lobby tries to redefine marriage or teach 5 yr. olds how “normal” transgenderism is and how you don’t really know if you are a boy or a girl.

But that’s why Hillbuzz is my favorite blog run by gay guys (OK, it is the only one I follow, but still . . .).  They are well aware of how dangerous the Left is and, despite being gay, they don’t follow the party line.  See  Media Manipulation (And Eeyore Breeding) Alert: Herman Cain on Homosexuality | Hillbuzz.  I encourage you to read the whole link, but especially the bolded parts below.  While the media and false teachers* will tell you what haters Christians are, there are many reasonable people who have learned who the truly vicious haters are.

I don’t believe Herman Cain is bigoted against gay people (certainly not in the same way that the LSM is bigoted against Christians.) As Kevin DuJan has said many times, as a Gay man, he has faced far more abuse and discrimination from Leftists (who want him to die a painful death) than he ever has from Christians (who, at worst, have threatened to pray for him). [Emphasis added]

Now, why would Lamestream Dinosaur Democrat Media Outlet CBS News want to put a soggy black raincloud of doom over the head of Herman Cain? Why would CBS want Republican and libertarian voters to dismiss this self-made man, who won the first GOP primary in South Carolina, has a track record of turning around failing businesses (and who, P.S., is black)? Why would the LSM want to use social issues to drive a wedge between libertarians and religious conservatives?

If you’ve been following along at home, the answer is “Because the LSM and Democrats (redundancy alert) believe Herman Cain can beat Obama.”

Herman Cain’s religious beliefs are shared by millions of Americans on the “religious Right.” (They aren’t shared by me, as it happens, but more on that in a moment.) I believe this news story was designed to drive a wedge between this segment of the Anti-Obama Coalition and libertarian-leaning GOP voters like myself.

And before Kevin DuJan taught us all about Eeyorism, I would have fallen for it.

If Herman Cain’s religious beliefs bother you, I’d like you to take a deep breath, and give the issue more thought than the LSM wants you to. I expect my take on this will be extremely controversial. But I’m going to go out on a limb and treat Hillbuzz readers like thoughtful, intelligent adults, unlike the LSM. (I realize this is a risky thing to attempt on the Internet. But I think the Buzzverse can handle it.)

. . .

Tell me again what Herman Cain’s personal religious beliefs have to do with unemployment, the plummeting value of the dollar, the unending corruption in Washington, the flight of capital out of the country, $4 gas, the ban on offshore drilling, or selective enforcement of Federal election law by Eric Holder’s Justice Department.

The answer is, as a libertarian, Herman Cain’s personal religious beliefs are immaterial, and of no concern to me, because the First Amendment and Federal law prevent him from inflicting them on me. [Emphasis in original]

Our Founding Fathers were geniuses. They created a public system that would allow for a diversity of private opinions. The Constitution and Bill of Rights protect non-religious people like me from the tyranny of a religious majority. The First Amendment prevents any candidate from inflicting his or her personal beliefs on me.

Remember, the LSM is totally and completely in the tank for Obama. You must evaluate all anti-GOP political coverage in that context.

Recognize this CBS news story for what it is…yet another transparent attempt by the LSM to divide the Anti-Obama Coalition and pick our candidate for us!  [Emphasis in original]

How many more times are conservatives and libertarians going to fall for this?

I’m so glad they see through what the MSM is doing here.

I don’t hate gays.  I’ve known a bunch and still do.  We get along great.  I have their long-term best interests at heart.  I seek to share the Gospel with them, if they are interested.  That’s love, not hate.

*False teachers include people like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie.

False teacher plays race card. Again.

Via Newt Gingrich’s Racially Charged Campaign For President — I don’t like Newt and would not vote for him, but I had to comment on the post by race-baiting false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie.  He insists that Gingrich is racist because he points out the huge increase in people on food stamps since Obama became President.  How is that racist?

To make matters worse, check out Chuck’s hypocrisy:

Gingrich might find some success among GOP primary voters and Tea Party activists by employing racist rethoric but I believe our country is a different place than it was a generation ago.

Right after claiming to be all about unity, he calls all Republicans racist.  Can’t you just feel the love from this serial, unrepentant liar?

Also remember that Chuck is wildly pro-abortion, which kills blacks at a rate 3x that of whites in this country.  But that isn’t high enough for Chuck.  He wants taxpayer-funded abortions, which he knows will take that rate even higher.  So who’s the racist?

Dear Republicans: Nice tsunami! Don’t mess it up.

See The Morning Briefing: The Tsunami | RedState for a laundry list of the massive wins for the GOP.

Hopefully the Republicans have learned their lessons.

  • As one writer so eloquently put it, Republicans didn’t win because voters decided that they were super awesome.  They voted for them because they sucked less than the Democratic party.  Don’t forget that.
  • Pro-lifers can win!  See Florida Pro-Life Senate Candidate Rubio Defeats Pro-Abortion Crist.  Hey, since Rubio is Hispanic doesn’t that mean his opponents were racist?  At least that’s the logic Democrats use if you oppose their minority candidates.
  • Don’t support RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) like Crist, Murkowski and Specter.  I don’t care how many times they’ve been elected.  Not only do they not help you, they’ll turn on you every time.  Tea Party / Conservative principles can win.  Just watch how they switch parties — with your money! — after they lose primaries.
  • Tea Party candidates are viable.  They resonate with what people know to be true.
  • Even if Christine O’Donnell lost I’m still glad she won the Republican nomination.  Principles count.
  • Do what you say you are going to do.  Don’t let the media tell you it will be unpopular.
  • Never stop educating people on basic economic principles.

More good news.  I just met someone who left California and couldn’t be happier.

  • In Arizona, South Carolina, Utah, and South Dakota, the People said screw you, Card Check, and made sure that the secret ballot would remain regarding unionization
  • Oklahoma has banned Sharia Law
  • Arizona voted against ObamaCare insurance mandate 55-45%
  • Kansas voted for the Right to Bear arms
  • Oklahoma voted against ObamaCare mandate
  • Bye Bye, Nutty Alan Grayson
  • California voted against Prop 23, which would suspend their insane globull warming legislation. Now they can watch their economy collapse even further, as 3,000 people a day move from the State
