2 Corinthians 5:9-10

(9) Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. (10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

Some Logic For Anti-Gun Zealots

Anyone with a bunch of dough can afford to build or buy a very secure home, in a gated community, or install a state-of-the-art security system. Furthermore, many of them have security of their own. The celebrities in Hollywood are well known for having bodyguards, all of whom are fully strapped with the very Glocks and Sig Sauers they want you and I to relinquish. They can afford it. We peons who live among the rest of the unwashed masses usually can’t afford the $500 to install a security system and the additional $50.00 a month to have it monitored. And realistically, a security system is not much of a deterrent. In fact, by the time your alarm going off lights up a keyboard and computer screen at the security company’s call center in Anytown U.S.A., and they call your local police, a bad-guy can be in and out of your house, having put a bullet in your temple and be in the wind. The cops get there just in time to draw a chalk outline around your body and hold a less-than-sincere press conference.

Furthermore, the celebrities, and other multimillionaires with their $300/hr bodyguards, have nothing to fear. They live in gated communities with roving armed guards, and their bodyguards often live with them, in their homes. When glass breaks in the middle of the night, they have a seven foot tall, ex-marine operator checking the perimeter, often armed with multiple firearms, and the cops will likely show up at Lisa Kudrow’s or Alec Baldwin’s house a lot faster than yours or mine.

Regarding Immigration Proposals, Beware of Your Opponents’ Motivation

The subject of immigration (and evidently, illegal immigration) has proven to be a divisive issue for conservatives.  There are divergent opinions as to which policies should be pursued vis-à-vis the 12 million illegal immigrants who reside in the country.  However, as conservatives, there are certain fundamental goals and red lines that we should all unite behind as we commence debate on this issue.  Any so-called comprehensive immigration reform proposal that is worth more than a bucket of spit must ensure the following:

  • we are not saddled with 12 million new consumers of the welfare state;
  • we don’t have 12 million new Democrat voters;
  • those receiving the amnesty will not have the ability to spawn chain migration;
  • before any amnesty is implemented, there is a complete establishment of visa tracking, border control, and mandatory E-verify to ensure that this won’t create another ‘Charlie Brown with the football’ scenario of more waves of illegal immigration;
  • our legal immigration system move towards a merit-based process that favors high-skill immigrants instead of the current “Kennedy” system that is random and tendentious towards low-skilled immigrants.

Undoubtedly, Republican negotiators of reform proposals, like Marco Rubio, are well-intentioned in their desire to solve a serious problem with thoughtful solutions.  However, if they are really committed to advancing conservative solutions and addressing conservative concerns about the immigration system, they must understand the adversity we all face with our Democrat opponents on this issue.  Their proposals must be crafted to work not just in a world full of Marco Rubios and Paul Ryans, but in a political system full of Luis Gutierrezs and a judicial sphere full of ACLU and MALDEF (Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund)  types.  Hence, when proposing immigration bills, to know thy enemy is key.  . . . please click here for the rest of the post →

The Astonishing History of Barack Obama and his Rise from Obscurity to Power





Biden dishonest about abortion pill mandate – Alliance Defending Freedom



“If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.” –Proverbs 29:9

Joe Was the Only One Laughing

“If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.” –Proverbs 29:9

2012-10-12-digest-1.jpgJoker Joe thought the whole night was hilarious
Conventional wisdom says that vice presidential debates don’t move the needle in elections, and last night’s debate was probably no exception. That said, Thursday night’s debate couldn’t have contrasted two more different candidates. Paul Ryan, the respectful, serious and earnest policy wonk, against Joe Biden, who behaved like a drunken clown and a jerk and paid due homage to the mascot of the Democrat Party — the Jackass.

On substance, Ryan held his own against Vice President Chuckles, despite having to face a second debate opponent in “moderator” Martha Raddatz of ABC News. Yet on style, whether the subject was the terrorist attack on our Libyan embassy, the ailing economy or abortion, Biden smiled, laughed, sneered, rolled his eyes and strategically interrupted Ryan every time the congressman hit his stride on an answer. And if it wasn’t Biden interrupting, it was Raddatz.

Biden is obviously a disciple of Saul Alinksy, who in his “Rules for Radicals,” Rule No. 5, said, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.” Clearly, the Obama team decided that the president’s failure last week was that he was “too polite,” and that Biden had to use ridicule to shore up their anxious base. The result was appalling, but then again, Biden has been rehearsing his socialist obfuscation and diversion in Washington for 40 years.

With that, here are a few high- and lowlights.

Libya: Biden blamed the intelligence community for the ever-changing story coming from the White House, and flat out lied when he claimed ignorance as a defense. “[W]e weren’t told they wanted more security” at the embassy, he said.. But the bottom line is that the whole episode is, as Ryan responded, “indicative of a broader problem,” and we’re witnessing “the unraveling of the Obama foreign policy.”

Iran: Biden made the ridiculous assertion that even though Iran has spent the last four years further developing fissile material for a nuclear weapon, “they have to be able to have something to put it in. There is no weapon that the Iranians have at this point.” Well, building a bomb to “put it in” is the easy part. When the argument shifted to how the ayatollah sees it, Biden argued that the administration’s “most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions, period,” have the Iranians looking at an “economy being crippled … the currency going into the tank … [and] the economy going into free fall.” We wondered if he meant the Iran economy or the U.S. economy. Maybe the administration should ease up on sanctions here at home.

Economy: We have to give Raddatz props for asking Biden why White House projections of unemployment under 6 percent were so wrong, but Biden immediately defaulted to blaming Bush. He then berated Mitt Romney for wanting to “let Detroit go bankrupt,” in contrast to the administration, which “rescued General Motors.” What he neglected to mention was that Detroit did go bankrupt — the White House just made sure the unions came out okay.

Biden then proceeded to the usual leftist class warfare, accusing Republicans of holding the middle class “hostage” to tax cuts “for the super wealthy.” Yet tax policy should be about growth, not “fair shares” and “economic patriotism,” as Barack Obama put it last week. As Ryan noted, “The economy is barely limping along. It’s growing at 1.3 percent. That’s slower than it grew last year and last year was slower than the year before.” The Romney/Ryan tax cut plan — a 20 percent cut across the board with reforms to deductions and credits — is first and foremost a pro-growth plan. The so-called “cost” of cutting those taxes will be more than offset by economic growth. Ryan tried to note despite rude interruption that John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan did the same thing with great success, contrary to the leftist assertion that we “can’t afford” it and that the Bush-era tax cuts caused the current deficits.

As for unemployment, the real (U-6) rate, which includes those who are underemployed and those who have become discouraged and simply given up looking for work, is reported as 14.7 percent but, as with U-3, is probably much higher. In addition, the real unemployed and underemployed ranks of Americans have swollen to more than 20 million, households considered impoverished have grown to one in six, and there are 47 million food stamp recipients — up 50 percent since Obama’s election. Obama has also amassed $5 trillion in new debt, and our national debt now totals $16 trillion, which for the first time in history now exceeds U.S. annual economic output. Finally, median household income has declined by $4,520 (8.2 percent) since Obama took office (that’s the real “Obama tax”), energy prices have doubled because of Obama restrictions, and economic growth has slowed to an anemic 1.3 percent.

Biden made hay of Romney’s statement about 47 percent not paying federal income taxes, but that created an opening for Ryan’s best zinger of the night: “I think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don’t come out of your mouth the right way.”

Medicare and Social Security: Ryan hit the most critical point, saying, “Medicare and Social Security are going bankrupt. These are indisputable facts.” He noted that Democrats “got caught with their hands in the cookie jar, turning Medicare into a piggybank for ObamaCare,” taking $716 billion from future Medicare outlays to make ObamaCare look less expensive, but in essence trying to spend the same dollar twice. Biden countered with the same lie about Ryan’s “voucher” plan supposedly costing seniors $6,400 a year when it does nothing of the sort. Biden’s real assertion is the same old canard that markets and competition don’t work, only government does.

Taxes: This was largely covered under the economy section, but it was at this point that Ryan really nailed it: “[W]e think that government taking 28 percent of a family and business’s income is enough. President Obama thinks that the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8 percent of a small business’s income.” And, given that “[e]ight out of 10 businesses file their taxes as individuals, not as corporations,” this is key.

Afghanistan: Ryan took issue with Obama’s withdrawal deadline because “we don’t want to lose the gains we’ve gotten. We want to make sure that the Taliban does not come back in and give al-Qa’ida a safe haven.” That’s exactly what’s beginning to happen under the current commander in chief. Biden’s reply was essentially that deadlines are good for cooperation. And, he noted, “I’ve been throughout that whole country, mostly in a helicopter, and sometimes in a vehicle.” Well then, that settles it!

Religion and abortion: This is not the top issue for most voters, but the candidates answers certainly were a window into their philosophies. While both men are Catholic, only one of them expressed genuine faith. Ryan noted that “reason and science” go hand in hand with his faith, saying that, when they saw the “seven-week ultrasound for our firstborn child, and we saw the heartbeat,” it confirmed to him that “life begins at conception.” Biden agreed, “Life begins at conception in the church’s judgment. I accept it in my personal life.” And yet somehow, in public policy, he’s determined to protect not that innocent life but a woman’s right to “control [her] body.” His faith teaches that abortion is murder, yet he thinks it should be legal and funded by the federal government. The contradiction was stunning.

Biden also played fast and loose with verb tenses in claiming that Catholic institutions don’t have to pay for contraception, per the ObamaCare mandate. They will next year. And Ryan responded with a simple question: If the administration is so great on religious liberty, “Why would they keep suing you?”

In closing: Biden struck the pose of the used-car salesman trying to make a deal with a sucker: “Who you gonna trust, me or your lyin’ eyes?” Ryan contrasted the two approaches, listing all of Obama’s unkept promises, and saying, “The choice is clear: a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency or a dynamic, growing economy that promotes opportunity and jobs. … [W]e will not try to replace our founding principles. We will reapply our founding principles.” That would indeed be an excellent place to start.

Post your opinion.


Arrogant. Insolent. Asshole…That was Biden in the opening 5 minutes. Got worse as it went on!!


GOA: Will Paul Ryan Smack Down the Administration over Fast & Furious?

Will Paul Ryan Smack Down the Administration over Fast & Furious?
Just recently, Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan — “A” rated by Gun Owners of America — became the 131st Representative to call for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation.
This came right about the time that a Spanish news outlet, Univision, presented an hour-long report which excoriates the Obama administration for its role in Operation Fast & Furious.  Among the many items presented, Univision told their viewers that:
* There have been other Americans — in addition to U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry — who were murdered by Fast & Furious guns, such as Air Force medic David Booher who was executed at a Juarez bar;
* There are scores of other crime guns which came into Mexico as a result of Fast & Furious that have not yet been tallied by Congress, such as the weapons used to massacre over a dozen teenagers at a party in Mexico — including some who were gunned down by lookouts as they escaped; and,
* There were other gun running operations, such as Operation Castaway which sent guns into Colombia, Honduras and Venezuela.
Univision also said that it was Bill Newell, the Phoenix ATF office leader, who decided that “the only way to track the guns was to wait for weapons to be recovered in crime scenes in Mexico.”
In regard to Newell’s statement, the Daily Caller says:  “That charge, if true, would mean the Obama administration decided to allow cartel operatives to kill and injure people with the weapons it gave them, and to recover the guns only after criminals ditched them at brutal — often deadly — crime scenes.”
In other words, dead Mexicans were the price to pay for advancing gun control in this country.
As stated by Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX), who sits on the congressional committee investigating Fast & Furious, this operation was nothing more than a “political ploy to bring gun trafficking into Mexico into the news to support some sort of anti-firearm agenda.”
Rep. Paul Ryan will engage the sitting Vice President Joe Biden in a nationally televised debate on Thursday, October 11.  Ryan is in a position where he can bypass the mainstream media and tell Americans how the Obama administration wanted to use dead Mexican bodies as a way to drudge up support for gun control in this country.
Remember, while no one died in Watergate, more than 300 people have perished because of Fast & Furious-gate.
ACTION: Please contact Rep. Paul Ryan and ask him to bring up Fast & Furious in the debate this Thursday with Joe Biden.  This is a unique opportunity for him to show how the administration will use diabolical methods to advance its gun control agenda.
—– Letter to Rep. Paul Ryan —–
Dear Rep. Ryan:
I want to thank you for taking a strong stance on Operation Fast & Furious and for calling for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder.
You are in a unique position where you can bypass the mainstream media and tell Americans how the Obama administration wanted to use dead Mexican bodies as a way to drudge up support for gun control in this country.
Recently, the Spanish news outlet, Univision, said that it was Bill Newell, the Phoenix ATF office leader, who decided that “the only way to track the guns was to wait for weapons to be recovered in crime scenes in Mexico.”
In regard to Newell’s statement, the Daily Caller says:  “That charge, if true, would mean the Obama administration decided to allow cartel operatives to kill and injure people with the weapons it gave them, and to recover the guns only after criminals ditched them at brutal — often deadly — crime scenes.”
This has been well-reported in many newspapers around the country:
* “The Obama Administration, according to ATF agents who blew the whistle on the illegal plot, intended to use statistics concerning U.S. guns in Mexico to call for more stringent gun control.” (Examiner, April 18, 2011)
* “The White House often claimed that 90 percent of the weapons used in Mexican crimes had been traced to the United States, but the number has never been substantiated. By all appearances, Fast and Furious delivered statistics to back up the figure.”  (“Too fast, too furious,” The Washington Times, July 13, 2011.)
In your debate this week, please mention Fast & Furious as yet another example of the way the Obama Administration has failed the American people — and, specifically in this case, used diabolical methods to advance its gun control agenda.
Remember, while no one died in Watergate, more than 300 people have perished because of Fast & Furious-gate.

Crime Problem, Not a Gun Problem…
