This is how the left undermines family values and is indoctrinating little children in gov't run schools. 
This is real video footage of the homosexual indoctrination of K-2 graders at a school in New England.
Pray for their protection.

Quote of the Day

“Well, we’ve done our research. I think any amateur could look at what we presented and come to the theory that it is not the true birth certificate. You know, I don’t run Hawaii, so I presume that we will be writing to Hawaii. And you know, from Day 1 all I said – to clear the air, let’s look at the microfilm in Hawaii, if the president was born in that hospital, look at the microfilm and prove it, that’s all. We have two other twins that were born the day after and the day before. The microfilm shows that they were born, so let’s see the microfilm – forget the birth certificate, if that’s an argument. Show the microfilm, and that clears the air. Where is the microfilm?”

Quote of the Day

"Jihadists' ultimate success or failure at "eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within" and institutionalizing Islam in its place, a goal enunciated by the Muslim Brotherhood, depends more on the West than the Islamists. It will never come to pass unless it is facilitated by a slow-motion cultural suicide at the hands of leftist elites who insist that no society is better than any other, downgrade their own civilization's accomplishments, do nothing to protect the West, and smear anybody who contradicts them."

Why Liberalism Never Works: Cost to operate a Chevy Volt

Eric Bolling (from Fox Business Channel's "Follow the Money") test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.    
For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.
Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range, including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery, is approximately 270 miles.
It will take you 4-1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph.  Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours.  In a typical road trip,  your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.
According to General Motors, the Volt battery will hold 16 kwh of electricity.  It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery.
The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity.
I pay approximately $1.16 per kwh.(it varies with amount used and the seasons).
So, 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery.
Continuing, $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.
Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine only that gets 32 mpg.  That cost is only $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.
The gasoline powered car cost about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000. 
So Obama wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that costs more than 7 times as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.

Capitalism akbar

After reading the headlines about the US soldier who shot up Afghanistan civilians, I couldn't help noticing an irony.  There is all this clamor to try this guy quickly and execute him, never mind his having suffered a traumatic brain injury. 

Yet this Major Hasan, who shot up Fort Hood while screaming Allah akbar, still hasn't stood trial, and they are still debating whether he was insane, even with the clear evidence regarding his motive: slay as many infidels as possible.  So we have a guy in a war zone who cracks, and he must be executed immediately. 

But this Muslim psychiatrist who was stateside in a nice safe office all day murders 13, wounds 29 of our own guys, and they try to argue the poor lad suffered post-traumatic stress syndrome, from listening to real soldiers who had actual battle experience.  Two and a half years later, they still haven't tried the murderous bastard.

"The stakes are much larger than one law or one President. It is not an exaggeration to say that the Supreme Court's answers may constitute a hinge in the history of American liberty and limited and enumerated government. The Justices must decide if those principles still mean something."

"Family Research Council will be hosting a prayer meeting at Christ Our Shepherd Church on Sunday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m., followed at 3:00 p.m. by the city-wide "Encircling the Court in Prayer" event outside the Court. If you aren't in the Washington area, you can still set aside time to pray for the wisdom of America's Justices. Whether we're in Congress, in Court, or on our knees, FRC will do everything it can to repeal ObamaCare in hopes that this anniversary will be the law's last."

Obama's Energy Farce Continues

By Gary L. Bauer

Campaign for Working Families

Barack Obama spoke today in the major oil town of Cushing, Oklahoma, and made a big deal about his support for the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline. His speech made it clear just how stupid he thinks we are.

To begin with, the southern portion of the pipeline does not require presidential approval. Only the northern part, which crosses an international border, requires special approval. That just happens to be the part of the pipeline that would actually bring in more oil from Canada, and that is the part of the pipeline that Obama and his radical environmental allies are blocking. So what Obama did today won't result in one more drop of oil coming into the country.

Obama also tried to take credit today for recent increases in oil production, claiming that he has opened up more land to drilling and exploration. He even said, "We are drilling all over the place." Don't be fooled. There is a big difference between Obama's rhetoric and reality.

When Barack Obama took office, the national average for a gallon of gasoline was $1.84. It's now $3.88 a gallon and you're pain at the pump is translating into Obama's pain in the polls. Suddenly he wants to "drill all over the place." Give it a few more weeks, and even Obama might be saying, "Drill, baby, drill!"

This is perhaps the most anti-energy administration we have ever had. And as Obama runs around the country making misleading and hypocritical speeches like the one in Cushing, it is important to remind folks about his record.

  • The first thing Obama's Interior Secretary did when he took office was to cancel scores of drilling leases.

  • The number of operational rigs in the Gulf of Mexico was cut in half after the 2010 BP spill. Why? Because of an Obama drilling ban that held up scores of permits.

  • So what about Obama's claim that oil production is up? It's not -- not on land controlled by the federal government. A March 14th report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration noted, "Total sales of all fossil fuels produced on Federal and Indian lands … rose by about 1 percent between fiscal year 2009 and FY 2010 and dropped by about 6 percent between FY 2010 and FY 2011." [Emphasis added.]

  • Obama's Energy Secretary once advocated $8.00-a-gallon gasoline.

  • A Harvard study estimated that Obama's cap and trade scheme could have resulted in $7.00-a-gallon gasoline.

  • In his speech today, Obama said, "We don't want to be vulnerable to something that's happening on the other side of the world." No we don't. But it was Barack Obama who blocked the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring in more oil from friendly Canada.

  • According to Gallup, 57% of Americans want the Keystone XL pipeline built. Just 29% oppose it. Obama sided with the 29%.

  • He wants to bankrupt the coal industry, which he admits will cause electricity rates to "necessarily skyrocket."

It's clear Obama thinks the American people are stupid and won't connect the dots. He's wrong. He also assumes the media are in the tank for him, so they won't point out the hypocrisy of this event or his extreme positions. He's right about that.

Quote of the Day

"Buried in the new health care law is the creation of a board of unelected bureaucrats known as the "Independent Payment Advisory Board" (IPAB). This powerful board's sole purpose is to save money by restricting access to care of Medicare beneficiaries.

Here are some things you need to know about IPAB, including details on how the IPAB threatens access to care and how the IPAB has blanket authority to act in secret. Even the most basic legislative checks and balances have been stripped away, giving enormous power to this Medicare cutting board.

Nothing is more troubling than IPAB's ability to put bureaucrats between patients and their doctors. No board of unelected bureaucrats should be given such unchecked power, especially over the quality and accessibility of health care for America's seniors."

A Prayer for Light and Wisdom


There are two things in life for us to choose from: you can be a host to God or a hostage to your ego. Let us pray to our God: most holy and glorious Lord God, the giver of life.

Many years ago when newsmen were not contaminated with political correctness and other

Demonic philosophy, the noble news caster Mr. Eric Sevareid predicted that our nation will betaken down by greed. He warned us to be on the alert for this damaging affect.

Greed and the lust for power seem to be the two dominating forces in our culture.

Far too many of our fellow countrymen are ignorant and confused, making them vulnerable to the charlatans masquerading as leaders.

Dear God, we pray that you will bring light and wisdom into the dark corners of this country.

Unless righteous and noble men come forward to lead our nation, we are doomed.


Only you God can readjust the heading of this nation. We pray that you will shower us with mercy and wisdom. We pray in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
