Ever since Mitt Romney’s infamous comment about the 47% tongues have been wagging, and it’s not all good. Romney is notorious for political mis-speak. This comment is the latest example of his political ineptness. The good thing is, he has shown his true colors and what he truly believes. Many who support him now feel alienated, because many of them are part of the 47% That Mr. Romney looks down on from on high.
America would become a theocracy under Rick Perry.
Rick Perry appears to be an astute politician, the problem is, his involvement with The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). To say that their ideology is far right is an understatement. They are so far right they make the Tea Party look liberal. NAR is under the belief that if they can convert enough Jews to Christianity they can expedite the second coming of Jesus Christ.
The founding fathers were right to call for separation of church and state. It appears they want to bring America into a right-wing, evangelical theocracy. It’s amazing that most of the American electorate is not aware of Rick Perry’s involvement in this underground, yet powerful movement. As the Republican field gets ready to intensify the battle for their parties nomination, this revelation will more than likely knock Rick Perry out of the race.
NAR has the belief that somehow Democrats are Satan worshipers because of their tolerance to gays. And that Oprah Winfrey is the Anti-Christ? Really? Are you beginning to see how dangerous this group is? They’ve even gone as far to recruit Black pastors to preach to their congregations about the evils of the Democratic party! Absolutely amazing, isn’t it? They absolutely frown on any form of tolerance.
They promote “spiritual warfare” being fought for the souls of those who want to go up in the “rapture.” They believe in fighting evil “principalities” that will wage war in the end times. NAR has a cadre of Messianic Jews, who have converted to Christianity to proselytize Jews and convert them. According to NAR the beast is among us and will fight to defeat and repel the second coming of Jesus in the end times.
Debt Ceiling – The Debt Ceiling is on every ones mind these days. This is the fiscal limit set by congress going back to 1917 to control government spending. Much is at stake if the debt ceiling crisis isn’t handled properly. The United States stands to lose it’s credit rating in the world economy. We jeopardize having our Stock and Bond markets crash. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner has his job cut out for him.
The overriding factor that will determine what happens with the debt ceiling is politics. In this game of fiscal chicken, the Republicans are steadfast and resolute that they will not be the ones to blink. No one wants to be the first one on the GOP side to support raising the debt ceiling. To do so, would brand that person a fiscal spendthrift.
Article first published as Herman Cain and GOP on Technorati.
Herman Cain officially announced he was running as a Republican for the 2012 presidential race. Already he’s meeting resistance from the GOP establishment. He is catching criticism from the likes of Tim Pawlenty and Karl Rove, who are dismissing his campaign as “entertainment.” Mr. Cain is the former Deputy Chairman of Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and CEO of Godfathers Pizza.
While Herman Cain is wildly popular in many conservative circles, he is being dismissed by establishment conservative pols. This is not surprising given the backlash at having an incumbent Black president and the acrimony surrounding Michael Steele’s departure as Chairman of the Republican National Committee [RNC].
The following article was written by guest blogger, Michael Knight.
I know what you are thinking; this article is going to be a criticism on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s, former Republican Governor of California, and recent discovery within his personal life; the answer is no. This is not an attack on just Arnold but more importantly the family values that his party holds and in recent news the contradiction of those family values. When one thinks of a Republican a lot of things come to mind. One that pops up right away is a party where its foundation is rooted on traditional family values. This is also a party heavily opposed to those within the gay community getting married; not the family values they espouse.
Article first published as GOP and the 2012 Election on Technorati.
The 2012 election started this past Friday night, Newt Gingrich announced his entry into the 2012 election at a GOP dinner in Georgia that he was officially entering the race for president.
Gingrich addressed the party faithful stating that the 2012 election will be the most consequential since the 1860 election that elected Abraham Lincoln and plunged America into the great civil war. It sounds like Newt Gingrich is longing for slavery to come back. It’s an obvious pander to a room full of Georgia confederates.

As the presidential campaign starts to take flight, President Obama is calling for much needed immigration reform. With no clear Republican candidates who have officially thrown their hat in the ring, President Obama has a clear head start on his re-election bid.
After a very successful week in the wake of the killing of Bin Laden and Donald Trumps poll numbers imploding, President Obama’s re-election prospects look very good indeed. Obama has a decidedly strong advantage over the Republican field on this hot-button topic. He is perceived as a “friendly” and not a hostile combatant as the Republicans are.
Article first published as Barack Obama and Birthers on Technorati.
Barack Obama is an American citizen! Enough already with the kooky birthers and their insane charges leveled against President Obama. Perhaps they would be happy if the state of Hawaii could produce pictures or video showing Obama as he came out of the womb with the placenta attached and Don Ho in the background playing Hawaiian music on his ukulele.
We have three wars going, a fragile economy, nuclear disaster in Japan and air traffic controllers taking siestas placing us all in danger. Come on people, we have much bigger fish to fry. Given the hand Barack Obama was dealt, he is doing an admirable job, all things considered.
Article first published as Donald Trump and The Blacks on Technorati.
“I have a great relationship with the blacks,” REALLY? So says Donald Trump in a recent radio interview. Of the potential candidates on the Republican side, Donald Trump was the one who could have taken votes away from Barack Obama in the 2012 election. Any political currency he had with the black community has been squandered on his lack of sensitivity.
The comment was no better than saying “those people.” It’s amazing to this writer how some politicians just don’t seem to get it. In a world where gaffes and blunders go viral in milliseconds thanks to the Internet, you would think one would be more careful.
Let’s all take a big deep cleansing breath, Pres. Barack Obama is a natural-born American citizen. All of this controversy surrounding President Obama is really getting nauseating. After a heated debate on the view today between Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Trump, and amidst much acrimony; the debate is still not settled. Whoopi Goldberg brought up a good point. When was the last time they asked a white president for his birth certificate? So why the urgency to see an Obama birth certificate?
What makes this notion insane regarding President Obama’s citizenship, is the fact that the vetting process is so intense, intrusive and thorough. Anyone with any shred of common sense has got to realize, that being the first black president not only was he vetted, they were probably trying to find any type of dirty laundry which would have disqualified then, candidate Obama.
