Voters Distrust ‘Diluted’ GOP

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Kind of cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face…

A conservative non-profit organization has completed a study that shows the liberal tsunami on Election Day 2008 was not because the country wanted to move radically to the left, but because voters wanted to punish Republicans for abandoning conservative principles.

The American Issues Project (AIP) has released its report known as “Issue Autopsy ’08,” which came from a survey of swing-state voters in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, and Virginia. AIP president Ed Martin says the survey indicates that despite the disastrous showing by the GOP, the country is not really that liberal. He says the “shellacking” delivered to the Republican Party last week reveals the party is “diluted” to the point where the American people do not really know what the GOP stands for anymore.

“The voters — the people who talked about who they were and what the principles and issues were for them in America — are still sort of classically center-right people,” Martin explains. “Their principles are smaller government, controlling spending, lower taxes, government competent when it is acting.”

Communist Party Ecstatic Over ’08 Election Results

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

This should be view as a bad thing…many of you won’t though.

Hailing Barack Obama ‘s win as a victory for the “working class,” the Communist Party USA is calling on the president-elect to carry out his promises, including his noted commitment to “spread the wealth.”

An editorial by the People’s Weekly World said the victory was for “workers of all job titles, professions, shapes, colors, sizes, hairstyles and languages.”

The newspaper, which boasts of its “partisan coverage,” identifies itself as “a national, grassroots weekly newspaper and the direct descendant of the ‘Daily Worker.'”

“We are partisan to the working class, racially and nationally oppressed peoples, women, youth, seniors, international solidarity, Marxism and socialism. We enjoy a special relationship with the Communist Party USA, founded in 1919, and publish its news and views,” the publication states.

The paper said Obama’s victory is “important … not only for people here in the U.S., but also for our sisters and brothers around the world.”

“The election outcome represents a clear mandate for pro-people change on taxes, health care, the war in Iraq, job creation and economic relief, union organizing and the Employee Free Choice Act. Reform and relief are in the air. Their scope and depth will be the arena of struggle. The best thing the coalition that won this victory can do is to stick together and help the new administration carry through on its promises,” the editorial said.

“Jubilation and celebration, yes, along with realization that the hard work is just beginning,” the PWW editorial said.

Obama’s commitment to “spread the wealth” was caught on tape as he talked with an Ohio voter, “Joe the Plumber,” who became a personality in the 2008 election campaign for the exchange in which he suggested Obama’s plan sounded like socialism.

Cross-Carrying Elderly Woman Attacked At Anti-Proposition 8 Rally

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

An angry mob of homosexual activists in Southern California attacked an elderly bespectacled woman carrying a cross, then shouted her down during a live TV interview as she tried to explain to a reporter her defense of the state’s new marriage amendment.

“WE SHOULD FIGHT! WE SHOULD FIGHT!” screams one pro-‘gay’-marriage protester as the woman, identified as Phyllis Burgess, stands calmly with a reporter waiting to be interviewed.

The video is available on this link, courtesy KPSP-TV in Palm Springs.

Another is screaming, “GET OUT OF HERE,” and the reporter tells her anchor team back at the station, “As you can see we are being attacked.”

The situation developed when homosexual activists gathered at the Palm Springs City Hall for a protest following voters’ approve by a margin of nearly 53 percent to 47 percent a state constitutional amendment that acknowledges only a marriage between a man and a woman will be valid or recognized in California. The amendment specified that it is effective immediately.

Then Burgess appeared, carrying a cross, to portray the biblical perspective of homosexual marriage.

She barely had arrived when the cross was knocked from her hand, then stomped on the ground.

The on-scene reporter, identified as Connie Chang, tried repeatedly to complete her interview.

“She just wants to express her viewpoint, sir,” she tells a protester who was waving his arms in her face.

The video later was posted on the San Francisco State University College Republicans’ website.

But the worst was yet to come, said Ryan Sorba, chairman of the college group.

“The video is astounding and chilling and speaks for itself,” he wrote. “The end of this video illustrates the fate of religious freedom and marriage should pro-sodomy activists ultimately legalize so-called same-sex marriage by way of activist California courts.”

That’s where the anchor concludes the report with: “There’s a lot of anger and a lot of hate, quite honestly, on both sides.”

On the Republicans’ comment page, there was outrage.

“There is simply no explanation for this kind of intolerance. For a group of people who claim to be fighting to expand their rights, they sure are willing to strip conservatives of theirs,” said one participant.

“Yeah, the 80 year old woman was full of HATE. you could tell,” wrote another anonymous poster.

Another said, “The anchor said there was a lot of anger and hate on both sides – there was no anger and hate portrayed by the little old lady holding the cross. She reminds me of Ghandi. The anger and hate was all one sided. To defile a crucifix like that is a very grave evil indeed.”

“Man, this is unbelievable,” added Fiona. “I have never seen so much intolerance and hate in my life. Who is being silenced now. The news anchor obviously was not paying attention to what was going on, if he had the nerve to say there was hatred from both sides. … From what I saw, she was saying she loved the people, was praying, and had her belongings ripped from her and trampled on.”

The other perspective was represented by another poster, “That lady had it comin.'”

“For Zion’s sake!” by Stan Goodenough

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Christian Zionists in every nation: Whatever else the 2008 US presidential elections are saying – and I know they are telling American Christians a great deal of very serious things – we should be hearing a klaxon in OUR ears.

Don’t be duped by the fact that the vast majority of American Jews – 78 percent – voted for Barack Obama.

Don’t be misled by the congratulations of Israel’s leaders who told the new president-elect they believe that he would “strengthen the special Israel-US relationship” (Ehud Olmert); that Israelis are “impressed by [Obama’s] commitment to the peace and security of Israel” (Tzipi Livni); and that Israel and the new administration “will work together for peace, security and prosperity in our region and a better future for us all” (Benjamin Netanyahu). This was purely prudent political posturing – paving the way for a positive start in relations once the White House changes hands.

The alarming truth is this: the already terrible danger to the Jewish national homeland and its people just multiplied, substantially.

And Christian lovers of Israel manifestly are not ready to confront it.

Obama’s meteoric rise found the American Church in disarray, caught flatfooted by the triumphant emergence of an extremely liberal leader surfing a giant wave of history, destiny and popularity that could not be stopped by the 62 to 73 percent of Evangelicals who voted against him.

There is little to be achieved by pointing fingers at influential Christians like Focus on the Family’s Dr. James Dobson and Charisma magazine’s Steve Strang, who took forever to give their blessing to John McCain; or Pat Robertson, who a year ago endorsed Rudy Giuliani in a move McCain said left him “speechless.”

Fact: just as the McCain campaign seemed unable to keep focus, especially towards the end of the race, battered (it is true) by a wildly wobbling Wall Street, American Bible believers, too, seemed unable to rally behind the team most likely to defend biblical Judeo-Christian values.

As a result, the man who leads America for the next four years will successfully oppose and undermine those values. And he will most certainly push hard to realize his predecessor’s “two-state-solution.”

Whereas George W. Bush entered office eight years ago eschewing excessive involvement in the Arab-Israeli conflict before 9-11 dragged him and his country into the Mideast morass, Obama is eager to engage the region from the start.

Even before the financial collapse that propelled him to the front, Obama had made it clear that, as president, he would robustly tackle the “open sore” of the Arab-Israeli conflict that infects “all of our foreign policy.” Visiting Israel in July, he vowed that he would apply sustained energy to resolve it.

And we should not ignore the ominous prophecies of Jesse Jackson – seen rejoicing at the Obama victory bash in Chicago, Illinois last night.
His words, as reported last month in The New York Post, hang in the air.

Jackson gloated over the changes an Obama presidency would bring. The most important would occur in the Middle East, where “decades of putting Israel’s interests first” would end. And although “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” remain strong, they’ll lose a great deal of their clout.

“Bush was,” he said, “so afraid of … upsetting Israel that he gave the whole thing [solving the conflict] a miss(!)”. He added that “Barack will change that” because, as long as the “Palestinians” haven’t seen justice, the Middle East will “remain a source of danger to us all.”

“Barack is determined to repair our relations with the world of Islam and Muslims.”
Of course, contrary to what Jackson said, Bush spent an enormous amount of political capital trying to bring resolution to Arabs and Jews. And he’s not done yet! His secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, is leaving Washington on her 24th trip to the region as I write.

How much more will Barack Obama not do. On a role before he even gets to the Oval Office, this man means business, and who will be able to withstand his efforts?

Israel’s leaders won’t. They are not people of faith, and America is the only “friend” they have left in the world. As Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni warned Wednesday: The US will push Israel into advancing the discredited land-for-peace process if the Jewish state refuses to do so.

According to Ynetnews Livni, who is contending in the newly-launched race for prime minister, noted that Israel’s general elections, scheduled for February 10, “must reflect the country’s interest in advancing the peace process, otherwise the international community, headed by the US, will try and push us in this direction.”

She needn’t worry. America will push whoever the Israelis choose to lead them. And whoever they are, those leaders won’t resist.

And we Christian Zionists, increasingly – it seems – more concerned with being politically correct than with standing on the Word of God, will do little to help.
