How Hillary Will change your Life by Joseph Farah

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Farah has some great insight here.

As Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign sputters and stumbles, her husband’s rhetoric on her behalf is more over-the-top than ever.

Last week, on a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Bill Clinton made the statement that his wife is “a world-class genius in making positive changes in other people’s lives.”

“The reason she ought to be president, over and above her vision and her plans is that she has proved in every position she has ever had in life, whether it was in elected office or not, that she is a world-class genius in making positive changes in other people’s lives.”

He said it.

Read it for yourself right here, if you don’t believe me.

What amazes me about this comment is the way Bill Clinton qualifies his wife’s genius. She’s not a genius at changing her own life. She’s a genius at changing other people’s lives.

This is the key to understanding Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and every other politician who thinks like them.

They may be the most corrupt, unhappy, unsatisfied, miserable, power-mad, ambitious, immoral people in public life. But they don’t seek to change themselves. Their genius is in manipulating others, forcing them to change their ways.

Neither of these people have ever lifted a finger to help someone around them who was in trouble, in crisis. They wouldn’t give a dime of their own money to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, nurse the sick. What they will do is use those perpetual needs in any society as means to empower themselves.

They will gladly spend your money – the more the better – and claim credit for being compassionate.

What I would like to ask Bill Clinton, if I had the chance, would be for him to name just one person whose life has been changed for the better by his wife’s genius.

I don’t think he could do it.

Bhutto’s Husband, Son to Succeed Her

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Bhutto’s son and husband are already in grave danger. Stepping into her shoes is like asking to be killed. When you are dealing with Palestinian terrorists, preaching democracy is like a death wish.

Benazir Bhutto’s 19-year old son was chosen Sunday to succeed her as chairman of her opposition party, while her husband will serve as co- chairman, extending Pakistan’s most famous political dynasty to another generation.
The party also decided to contest upcoming elections, apparently ending the threat of a wholesale boycott by Pakistan’s political opposition as the key U.S.-ally struggles to transition to full democracy after years of military rule.

The decision was made at a closed meeting of the Pakistan Peoples Party central executive committee, three days after the two-time prime minister was assassinated in a suicide attack.

It catapults Bilawal Zardari, an Oxford University student with no political experience, to the center of Pakistan’s tumultuous public life.

“The party’s long struggle for democracy will continue with renewed vigor,” he said at a news conference. “My mother always said democracy is the best revenge.”

Supporters chanted “Benazir, princess of heaven” and “Bilawal, move ahead. We are with you.”

Mitt Romney And His Pro-Gay Agenda

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Yet another reason to keep Romney off the ballot.

A prominent pro-family leader is urging fellow conservatives to withdraw their support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over his recent expressed support for a “sexual orientation” non-discrimination law.
Romney during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” said he supports the contentious Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which adds “sexual orientation” to a list of federally protected classes that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

The bill upsets conservative leaders because it grants special protection to employees based on their “actual or perceived” sexual orientation. Moreover, it would force Christian organizations that oppose homosexuality to hire gay employees.

“Mitt Romney’s Christmas present to the homosexual lobby disqualifies him as a pro-family leader,” said Peter LaBarbera, longtime pro-family advocate and founder of the Republicans For Family Values website.

“Laws that treat homosexuality as a civil rights are being used to promote homosexual ‘marriage,’ same-sex adoption and pro-homosexuality indoctrination of schoolchildren,” he said. “These same laws pose a direct threat to the freedom of faith-minded citizens and organizations to act on their religious belief that homosexual behavior is wrong.”

The former Massachusetts governor responded on “Meet the Press” that ENDA “makes sense” at the state level. But LaBarbera warns that if Romney “openly” promotes homosexual agenda at the state level then he cannot be trusted at the federal level.

He pointed out that the state’s “sexual orientation” nondiscrimination law laid the groundwork for Massachusetts legalizing gay “marriage” – the first in the country to do so.

Moreover, the ENDA-like law forced Boston’s Catholic Charities to shut down its century-old adoption agency because it refused to place children in gay households against Catholic teaching.

“Given Romney’s extensive pro-homosexual record and willingness now to depart from principle on this crucial issue, should we trust a ‘President Romney’ not to reverse course again on federal pro-homosexual laws such as ‘Hate Crimes’ and ENDA?” LaBarbera posed.

In addition to the homosexuality agenda, pro-family leaders have also had reservations on Romney’s commitment to the abortion issue, which he only recently said he was against.

Well-known conservative leaders who have endorsed Romney include Paul Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation; Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition; Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law & Justice; and Mark DeMoss of the PR agency DeMoss Pond.

“Now some pro-family leaders – who have raised millions of dollars over the years opposing ‘gay’ activism – will need to explain how they can go on supporting an openly pro-homosexual-agenda candidate,” LaBarbera said.

The federal ENDA bill is opposed by Christian heavyweights such as Tony Perkins of Family Research Council, Dr. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family, Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. of High Impact Leadership Coalition, Alan Sears of Alliance Defense Fund, the Rev. Rick Scarborough of Vision America, and Colin A. Hanna of Let Freedom Ring.

President George W. Bush has also indicated he intends to veto the bill if it makes it to his desk
