President Obama Nominates John Kerry for Secretary of State

Obama nominates Kerry for secretary of state | Fox News

President Obama announces that Senator John Kerry (D-MA) is his next choice for Secretary of State.  If confirmed, Kerry will replace the outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

President Obama on Friday nominated Massachusetts Senator John Kerry to be the next candidate to head the state department to replace the outgoing Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.  Obama made Kerry his choice to be the next Secretary of State a week after Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., withdrew her name for consideration to be the next person to replace Hillary Clinton.  Rice withdrew her name from consideration due to mounting resistance for several Republicans.  She's under fire for the comments she made following the Benghazi attacks in Libya when she called the attacks "spontaneous." 

Obama said Kerry would be the perfect choice to head the state department.  He was under consideration to be the next Secretary of State for President Obama even before Rice withdrew her name.  Obama cites Kerry's experience in the Senate as being chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  Kerry's been in the Senate since winning his first Senate election in November 1984.  Kerry is a decorated Vietnam veteran.  He drew fire from the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth concerning the medals he claimed he earned while serving in Vietnam as well as testifying in Congress against our own troops in 1971.  Kerry was the Democratic presidential candidate in 2004 who narrowly lost to incumbent George W. Bush. 

If Kerry wins nomination, then his Senate seat will be up for grabs, which could open the door for outgoing Senator Scott Brown to have another opportunity at a Senate seat in Massachusetts next year.  To read the full story, click on the link from FoxNews.com.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has appointed South Carolina Congressman Tim Scott to replace Senator Jim DeMint, who is resigning from the U.S. Senate to head the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C.  Jim DeMint was first elected U.S. Senator of South Carolina in 2004 to replace the retired Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, who had previously been U.S. Senator from South Carolina since 1967. 

Tim Scott is a black Congressman from South Carolina who was first elected to the House in 2010, the year the Republicans recaptured the House from the Democrats.  He won an open seat in 2010 after beating the son of former segregationist and Senator Strom Thurmond that year.  Scott has close relationships with the governor and DeMint and the Republican Party establishment.  He will become the seventh black to serve in the Senate and the first black from the South since the 1800's.  Scott will face a special election in 2014 to retain the Senate seat and in 2016 the seat will be up for a full six-year term.  Scott expects to assume his new office on January 3, 2013.

Bill O'Reilly: Obama Voters Voted for Free Stuff

In his Talking Points segment on the O'Reilly Factor on November 19, 2012, Bill O'Reilly was making the case that voters whose income was under $30,000 were those who tended to vote for President Obama's re-election victory on November 6.  O'Reilly pointed out that the reason those voters voted for Obama wasn't because those segment of voters voted for more government regulation of business or voted for high unemployment.  The reason why those voters voted for Obama is because they wanted government handouts.  That's the truth.  America has produced a segment voters who believe in an "entitlement mentality."  They believe the government owes them something.  We have voters that desire for government to give them handouts such as free healthcare, free housing, free college education, free cell phones, etc.  This kind of mentality is what's hurting America.  America's hope isn't in a handout or some government program.  America's hope is in the Lord.   Those who lack a work ethic need to realize that labor is part of God's economy.  God intends for us to labor for our living.  That's the Biblical way.  It's also the American way.  Those early settlers who came to America had to earn their labor by the sweat of their brow.  There weren't any government handouts available when the Pilgrims sailed to New England.  There also weren't modern conveniences that we enjoy today.  If they desired to eat, they must work for it.  They had to slay animals and grow crops for their food.  America has come a long way since that time.  Today we've produced a generation who doesn't have much of a desire to work for a living.  They want to sit at home expecting their parents and the government to take care of them.  It's tragic.

DeMint Exits Senate to Head up Heritage Foundation

DeMint Exits Senate as Conservative Brand Weakens - Bloomberg

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) resigning from Senate to head Heritage Foundation

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) announced a few days ago that he's leaving the Senate to head up the Heritage Foundation.  DeMint is considered a champion amongst fiscal conservatives.  DeMint played a role in the election of various Tea Party-backed candidates in the last two years such as Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), and Ted Cruz (R-TX).  DeMint's Senate Conservatives backed several Senatorial candidates in 2010 and 2012.  Some of them won as I mentioned ealier along with Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).  Two other Senate candidates that DeMint endorsed were Todd Akin who ran against Claire McCaskill in Missouri and Richard Mourdock who defeated incumbent Richard Lugar in the Indiana primary.  Both of those candidate lost due to the rape comments they made this past fall.  Both candidates defeated themselves as far as I'm concerned. 

Republican political consultant Craig Shirley said that DeMint will be freer to "roar as a lion" by joining the Heritage Foundation than if he remains in the Senate.  Also, leading the Heritage Foundation will help bolster DeMint's finances.  He reported a net worth of $65,000 on his 2010 financial disclosures forms, the fourth lowest of U.S. Senators according to the Center for Responsive Politics in Washington.  Edwin J. Feulner, who will step down as president in April, was paid more than $1 million in 2010, according to the group's tax documents. 

Jim DeMint was considered a strong voice for conservative principles in the Senate, esp. when it came to fiscal issues.  Prior to running for the U.S. Senate, he served three terms in the House of Representatives.  The Club for Growth, a small-government group based in Washington, gave him a rating of 100%.  Jim DeMint was right on target with everything he said in regards to the political issues of the day.  He even voted right.  The only problem was when it came to the fight to try to stop Obamacare from being passed in the Senate in 2010, for example, he never led in an effort to start a filibuster.  That kind of leadership was something we were missing from DeMint.  Not only DeMint, but other Republican Senators as well.  We need Senators that will stand up against Obama's agenda and that has to be done through the means of a filibuster in the Senate.  We need our elected officials to be willing to stick their neck out in Congress.  Sadly, there's no one that's willing to do that.  Other than the fact DeMint didn't stick his neck out to stop Obama's agenda, he did well in regards to his voting record.

I'm certain there's much speculation on why DeMint is leaving the Senate.  I'm sure finances play a part.  I personally believe the reason he left the Senate is because he realizes it's a jungle in the Senate and since the GOP didn't gain control of the Senate this past election, he knew that it would be a mess.  I think he would serve much better at the Heritage Foundation than remaining in Congress.  He knows it's a losing battle in Congress and I think it was best that he move on.  The price was more than he probably was willing to pay by remaining in the Senate.

Gibson: Tax Pledge Doesn’t Count Because District Number Changed

Gibson: Tax Pledge Doesn’t Count Because District Number Changed - By John Fund - The Corner - National Review Online#

Rep. Chris Gibson (R-NY)

When Rep. Chris Gibson (R-NY) ran for Congress the very first time in 2010, he signed a pledge in 2010 that he wouldn't raise taxes.  Of course, he was running for the 20th district in New York.  In 2012, due to redistricting as a result of the 2010 census, Gibson was redrawn into the 19th district.  He then said he wouldn't abide by the tax pledge he made in 2010 because that doesn't apply to the district he now represents due to Congressional realignment.  However, half of his constituents were from the old 20th district.  He claims the pledge is to the constituents of a particular numbered district.  Since he now represents the 19th district, the tax pledge he made in 2010 no longer applies.  He's a RINO. 

Why is the issue of taxes such a big deal?  For one reason, America's economy is still sluggish and a tax increase isn't going to stimulate the economy.  The methods needed to stimulate the economy are to lower taxes and abolish the mundane regulations Congress has passed which make it very difficult for businesses to operate and flourish.  Secondly, I believe it's immoral for Congress to be asking the American public for tax increases when the problem is overspending.  Congress hasn't done anything to eliminate wasteful spending. For Congress to tell the "rich" that their taxes are being raised is very immoral.  I've stated numerous times that Congress should abolish the present tax code and institute a flat tax.  That way everybody who works a job has to pay a percentage regardless how rich or poor they are.  They refuse to do that because they love to polarize the American people by playing class warfare.  They try to give the impression that the rich are the evil people.  This tax policy is a great way to divide and polarize Americans.  That's why the Democrats and even some Republicans play the class warfare game. 

Taxes isn't refined to a particular district in a particular state.  Taxes affect all Americans and many Americans and businesses are struggling in part because America's tax system is too overbearing.  Let's face it:  Politicians can't obtain enough of our tax dollars.  They squander the money they receive.  I don't feel sorry for them.  That's why I say we need to vote out incumbents.  The longer they remain in office, the more corrupted they become.

Morning Bell: What IS the Fiscal Cliff?

I have posted a link from the Heritage Foundation which gives a primer on what a fiscal cliff is.  Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke coined the term "fiscal cliff" while urging Congress to avoid a steep drop off for the economy at the end of the year thanks to automatic tax increases and automatic budget cuts.

Democratic Rep: Amend Constitution To Allow Control Of Speech « CBS Atlanta

Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) is calling for a Constitutional amendment to the U.S. Constitution which would allow for some legislation restrictions on freedom of speech.  "We need a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to control the so-called free speech rights of corporations," Hank Johnson was quoted as saying by CNS News.  Johnson made the statement that "corporations control patterns of thinking."  I have a question for Rep. Johnson.  Does the ACLU control patterns of thinking in American society?  How about La Raza or Green Peace or feminist groups?  Do they need to be regulated as well? 

The hallmark of American society is the freedom guaranteed to us by the First Amendment which is the freedom of speech.  That's what makes America a unique country.  That amendment protects our right to say what we desire regardless of how popular or unpopular it is.  That's something citizens of many countries around the world don't have the privilege to enjoy.

Boehner Faces Conservative Backlash Over Tax Proposal, Even as Democrats Resist Offer

Boehner faces conservative backlash over tax proposal, even as Dems resist offer | Fox News

House Speaker John Boehner is receiving a lot of heat from "conservatives" in both chambers of the House in regards to his fiscal crisis counter proposal where the House proposes $800 billion in new tax revenue.  Even that proposal was rebuffed by President Obama.  Tea Party-aligned Republican Jim DeMint (R-SC) argued that the House plan "will destroy American jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more." 

John Boehner should resign as Speaker of the House.  It's pathetic there aren't any Tea Party Republicans in the House who have enough audacity to call for the Speaker's resignation.  If you click on Jim Sumpter's website which is www.JimSumpterShow.com, you'll see a picture of John Boehner in a dress.  That's the kind of leadership we have in the House.  He's weaker than the average woman.  Wouldn't it be great if he had as much gall to stand for the Constitution (like Nancy Pelosi does in standing for leftist causes)?  If he would stand for the Constitution, then Obama's proposal for a tax hike would immediately go in flames.  Instead, he caves in to the President.  He's totally abandoned the pledge he and the GOP made during the midterm election in 2010.  He's another sellout.

Taxes: GOP Surrenders Last Issue Advantage

Taxes: GOP Surrenders Last Issue Advantage

House Speaker John Boehner with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor

It's a sad day in American history when you have RINO's such as House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor surrending the one last issue the Republicans have over the Democrats: taxes.  For your information, I don't care about the Republicans.  I'm not interested in trying to save the GOP.  I think they've went too far to be saved.  They're bought by the same forces (forces of Nimrod) as the Democrats are.  Consequently, the GOP under crybaby John Boehner has inadvertantly told the voters by his actions there's no legitimate reason to continue for the GOP.  Both parties are virtually the same.  The only difference is that Democrats are hardcore socialists and Republicans are willing to be their accomplices.  John Boehner has eliminated any distinction between the two parties.  The average voter no longer has any reason to vote for the GOP.  If the Republicans officially decide to bolt against Grover Norquist's "no-tax" pledge and vote for taxes, then I believe it will more than likely be over with for the GOP.  Why the GOP in the House doesn't call for the resignation of Boehner is stunning.  The truth is they've all been compromised in the House.  Where's Michelle Bachmann?  Where's Tim Gowdy?  They need to be speaking out loud and clear against Boehner. 

Higher taxes isn't the recipe to prevent us from falling over the "fiscal cliff".  The answer is for the government to loosen the stranglehold on the economy, eliminate wasteful government spending, and abolish the present tax code.  The government should institute a flat tax.  It would stop all this class warfare.

Study: CA Worst-Governed State in America

Study: CA Worst-Governed State in America

Why am I not surprised when I read from Breitbart.com that California is one of the worst-governed states in the country?  I'm not a bit surprised.  When you consider the fact that voters elected past governors such as Gray Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jerry Brown, who's the current governor, it's no surprise.  Also, California hasn't been unable to unseat U.S. Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, to name a few.  The very fact that voters keep sending these corrupt politicians back to Washington says that California has major problems.  The type of politicians California keeps sending back to Washington is a representative of the people who live there.  That's why their state budget is out of control and they're practically bankrupt. 

Also, California is a cesspool of immorality, esp. in San Francisco.  San Francisco is filled with Sodomites who live in that area.  Former San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome gave marriage licenses so sodomites could marry as far back as 2004, not too many months after the Massachusetts Supreme Court said homosexuals couldn't be forbidden to marry by the state.  California has barnyard morals.  And we wonder why the state is broke.  California has an extreme rate of inflation.  It's too costly for an average person to live there.  Also, regulations make it very difficult for businesses to operate there, so they're leaving the state in droves.  It's tragic.

The Problem is Excessive Spending

Obama's opening fiscal cliff bid seeks debt limit hike, stimulus | Reuters

Since the presidential election we've been hearing about the "fiscal cliff" that's upon us and now Congress and the president are working toward some sort of "compromise" to avert the fiscal cliff that's upon us.  Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is making a proposal to include more stimulus spending and the authority to unilaterally raise the U.S. borrowing ceiling, according to Reuters.  Republicans greeted it with laughter.  Let's make something abudantly clear.  The problem is not the wealthy pay too little taxes.  The problem isn't that the borrowing limit isn't high enough.  The problem is one thing: overspending.  It's foolish to be discussing the issue of raising the debt ceiling or raising taxes on the wealthy.  The truth is Congress and the president will continue with their spending ways.  The Federal Reserve prints money already.  Raising taxes on the wealthy is plain wrong.  Why target them?  It's all about the the government controlling the American people.  The answer is for the government to drastically slash all the wasteful government spending.  That's the answer.  That's so simple that it's plain as the nose on your face.  It's too simple for the government to understand.  Ha! Ha!

Exclusive: Jeb Bush Meets with Former Aides Near White House

Exclusive: Jeb Bush Meets with Former Aides near White House - By Robert Costa - The Corner - National Review Online#

Former Florida Govenor Jeb Bush

Oh no! Not again!  The way things are appearing, I venture to say that former Florida governor Jeb Bush is prepping himself for a presidential run in 2016.  There have been rumors for some time that Bush might be the GOP candidate in 2016.  The last thing we need is another Bush in the White House.  The Bush's are globalists.  Much of the damage that's been done within the last decade is due to the direction the Bush administration took us to from 2001-09.  The passage of the Patriot Act in October 2001, the never-ending wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, The No-Child Left Behind Act of 2002, the mortgage meltdown, and the TARP bailout took place undedr Bush's tenure.  That led to the election of Barack Hussein Obama in 2008. 

If Jeb Bush were to be elected in 2016 as president, he would allow for amnesty for illegal aliens and would be the monkey boy for the forces of Nimrod like his brother was.  Bush would be a disaster for the country if he were to be elected president in 2016.  I wouldn't be surprised if he were to become the GOP nominee in 2016.  Bush is the type of man the globalists would desire to be in office.  It seems like the presidency of the U.S. is becoming a monarchy.  We've already had Bush '41 and Bush '43 in office.  The last thing we need is a Bush '45 in office.  However, I guess it's all about royal patronage.  It wouldn't be so scary if I didn't believe it were to be true.  If Bush submits his name for the presidency in 2016, then I'll venture to say he'll most likely be the GOP nominee.

Top Republicans Signal Willingness to Break Anti-Tax Pledge

Top Republicans Signal Willingness to Break Anti-Tax Pledge

From top left Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), top right John McCain (R-AZ), bottom left Rep. Peter King (R-NY), and Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)

According to Newsmax, there are growing signs within the Republican ranks that the no-tax pledge they have long upheld they are now supposedly willing to bolt on it.  Four Republicans have signaled willingness to do so.  Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Saxby Chambliss, and Rep. Peter King have stated they viewed the no-tax pledge designed by Grover Norquist to be binding upon them.  The decades-old pledge designed by Americans for Tax Reform has been signed by 238 House members and 41 members of the Senate.  Now we're having an elite group of Republicans that's willing to step away from that.  What a tragedy we don't have Republicans that stand for their principles like Democrats do.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has a backbone of steel when it comes to standing for what she believes.  I wish we had Republicans that were adamant about what was right as Nancy Pelosi is when it comes to promoting the leftist agenda.  We don't have a single member of the GOP like that. 

I believe it's immoral for these RINO's to bolt from the no-tax pledge.  There's no excuse for our lawmakers to pass on a tax increase to us when they spend money like a drunken sailor.  The GOP House under crybaby RINO John Boehner hasn't done anything to eliminate wasteful spending.  It's a crying shame.

Republicans Say Raising Taxes Alone Will Hardly Put Deny in Budget, Deficit

Republicans say raising tax rates alone will hardly put dent in budget, deficit | Fox News


GOP Congressman Tom Price from Georgia in 2009.

Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga) made the statement the other day that ending the rates from the Bush tax cuts for families earning more than $250,000 a year would produce only enough money for the government to run for less than nine days.  That's the truth.  I personally don't know how much revenue would be generated from tax increases from the wealthy but it wouldn't be enough to last that long.  The reason is (1) there aren't that many wealthy people in America (2) and the government's spending is way out of control.  I believe it would be thievery for the federal government to raise taxes upon the American people anyway.  The government overspends and they haven't done one thing to rein in out-of-control federal spending.  They have no right to impose higher taxes upon the so-called wealthy.  They won't do their part to tighten their belts when it comes to federal spending.  Therefore, they have no business asking the American people to tighten their belts and cough up more money for Uncle Sam. 

What the federal government wants is control over the American people.  That's why the tax code is the way it is.  They can play the class warfare game with the progressive tax code.  If the government was serious about raising more revenue, then they would loosen the stranglehold on businesses which hinder them from creating more jobs.  If the regulations over businesses were drastically reduced, businesses would grow, hire more people, and bring more taxable receipts to the government.  Our elected elite know that.  They don't care.  Our government is all about controlling our lifestyle.  The government is transforming itself into a dictatorship.

With the re-election of Barack Obama, it's no surprise that Morgan Stanley predicts that 2013 will be a sluggish year economically.  With his re-election, Obamacare will be fully implemented in 2014.  Also, if Congress fails to act, there will be major tax increase that will take place automatically if the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts aren't renewed.  That does sound gloomy, doesn't it?  To read the full story, click on the above link from CNBC.

Obama Thanksgiving Address: Calls to United Behind WH, Doesn't Thank God

Obama Thanksgiving address: Calls to unite behind WH, doesn’t thank God | The Daily Caller

President Obama with daughters Sasha (Center) and Malia (Right).  I don't know who the man to the left is.

For the fourth year in a row, President Obama once against didn't give thank God or give credit to God for the many bountiful blessings that's bestowed upon America.  Of course, who should be surprised?  Obama's thinking is rooted in communism and communism is atheistic.  If you don't believe me, then read Karl Marx, the founder of communism.  He was considered an atheist.  I'm not insinuating that Barack Obama is an atheist.  I don't believe he is.  But if you recall who President Obama's former pastor was, you should be able to understand why Obama isn't going to God for America's blessings.  I'll say this, if he worships a god, then it's probably Allah.  It's an indisputable fact that he was a Muslim when he lived in Indonesia in his youth.  As far as I'm concerned, he's probably a closet Muslim.  He's always defending Islam in the Muslim world. 

Tragically, America re-elected Barack Obama just a few weeks ago.  So we'll have to live with him at least another four more years.  It's amazing we have re-elected a president that stands in opposition to America's heritage.  What a sad day we live in.

Boehner: Obamacare on Table For 'Fiscal Cliff' Talks

House Speaker John Boehner in Congress for "fiscal cliff" talks

Congressional leaders and President Obama have met on Capitol Hill to supposedly search for "common ground" on Capitol Hill to reach a budget deal.  House Speaker John Boehner said the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, must be included on the table in deficit negotiations.

John Boehner is dead wrong when he said that Obamacare is on the table for deficit negotiations.  Obamacare should be repealed.  Since the Senate is Democratic and President Obama is a Democrat, then the House should take the lead to defund Obamacare.  Obamacare shouldn't be included in the budget.  It's too expensive and I believe it will destroy the economy once the key provisions are enacted in 2014.  Some say, what if the government shuts down?  Then maybe it should shut down.  The Republicans need to stand up to Obama's bluff.  It's time Republicans start acting like patriots and stand up to President Obama.  Obamacare shouldn't be funded.  Consequently, I don't think Boehner will have the audacity to defund Obamacare.

CARDENAS: Republican too White, Male, Old

CARDENAS: Republicans too white, male, old - Washington Times

Since Mitt Romney's disappointing loss in the presidential election a few weeks ago, several naysayers have been predicting the reason for Romney's loss in the election.  Many are saying the problem with the GOP is they are too conservative and the influence of the "right-ring" media such as Rush Limbaugh, for example.  Also, they are saying the GOP vote is comprised of old, white, men.  That's the explanation many are giving for the GOP's loss this past November.  That's not the truth.  Here are some of the reasons why the GOP lost in November.

One of the reasons that the GOP lost the presidential election was the simple fact Mitt Romney ran a very wimpish campaign.  He was a very weak candidate that didn't make his case very well before the American public.  He didn't call Obama out for who he was.  He didn't say how he would deal with the issue of illegal immigration.  He didn't have any fire in his bosom.  It was a joke.  I personally don't think he ran to win.  He was far from the candidate that was needed to show the American people he was the man for the job.  It was ridiculous given the fact that President Obama was vulnerable considering the state of the American economy.  I believe everything was set up for an Obama win. 

Another problem was the issue of changing demographics, as Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly pointed out on election night to Brett Baier and Megyn Kelly.  The United States has been infiltrated with Hispanics within the last few decades due to unrestrained illegal immigration.  Many of them vote Democratic.  We also have a growing segment of the population that are receiving government benefits.  Within the last few years millions of Americans have lost jobs due to the mortgage meltdown and more of them are receiving jobless benefits.  There are also those who believe the government owes them a living.  There are some people who claimed they voted for President Obama because of free cell phones.  There are also a group of deadbeats who are content to live on government welfare.  That's one of the problems with America's culture.  People want free benefits but have no desire to earn their living.  That mentality is far from the American Dream that built this great nation. 

Another problem is the dumbing down of America's schools.  As a result, we are having a growing segment of young people who are voting Democratic.  According to a Pew Research survey, 66% of those under the age of 30 voted for Barack Obama.  That's more young people voting for a Democratic president than any time since exit polling began in 1972. 

The GOP doesn't need to tone down their message.  They need to do a much better job in marketing their message.  The problem is I believe the GOP have willfully toned down their message in the last 2 presidential elections to give the election to Barack Obama.  The GOP must stick to their principles.  It's ridiculous for them to compromise their message.  The GOP has had the right message in the past.  The problem is they don't enforce what the party platform stands for.  We have too many RINO's in the GOP.  They want to compromise with issues that are worth compromising.  Why vote for the GOP if they're going to behave like Democrats?  It's ludicrous.  They need to stand with the Constitution.  That also includes cracking down on illegal immigration.  They shouldn't be crafting a new platform to grant amnesty to illegal aliens.  They need to pass a law to create a triple-tiered border fence.  They need to tell those that are living illegally in the United States they can't remain here as illegals.  If they are going to remain in the U.S. they must apply for a permit to live in the U.S. or they must go through the proper channels to apply for citizenship.  The day that illegals live in the U.S. as illegals must end.  We can't have undocumented people living here in the United States.  Not only is it too dangerous but it's also not fair to those that live her legally.  The problem is the GOP wants to abandon their principles for the sake of compromise.  Nobody wants to stand for what's right.

Steve Forbes Surprise: Yes to Higher Tax Rates

Steve Forbes Surprise: Yes to Higher Tax Rates

Steve Forbes

Forbes editor Steve Forbes came out to offer Democrats a "piece of advice" as they head into budget talks to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" that our country is facing: Raise taxes to Clinton-era levels but only alongside the former president's policies that strengthened the dollar, loosened economic restrictions, and reduced federal spending.  If Steve Forbes believes that's going to happen, he's got holes in his brain.  That will not happen.  I will also point out if wasn't president Clinton's intentions when he ran for president in 1992 to adopt the particular policies of loosening economic restrictions or reducing federal spending.  The reason why federal spending was reduced, capital gains taxes were cut, and the looser restrictions on the economy were the result of both Houses of Congress turning Republican in 1995.  If Clinton had his way Hillary's own version of healthcare would've passed and federal spending wouldn't have been reduced.  He had no choice with the GOP who took over Congress during that time.  They helped balance Clinton out--which was something the 112th Congress hasn't done to Obama.  Instead House Speaker John Boehner rolls over for President Obama. 

In 1982 Democrats talked Reagan into a bipartisan compromise to cut spending three dollars for every dollar of tax increases.  Taxes were raised but they weren't followed by spending cuts.  It wouldn't be any different this time.  Forbes knows that his formula isn't going to work.  President Obama isn't going to loosen economic restrictions.  In order to do so, Obamacare will have to be repealed.  Obama will never agree to that.  The goal of the Obama administration is to take control of the economy.  President Obama doesn't believe in a free-market economy.  He wants a command economy, where the government dictates what businesses can produce, such as green technology, for example.  The economy is going the direction he desires for it to go.  If Obama wanted to turn the economy around, he would've already done so.  Raising taxes isn't the answer.  The problem is overspending and there's no commitment from either party to eliminate wasteful government spending and needless bureaucracy.

Tis the Season

Julie Andrews "The Bells of Christmas"

Julie Andrews "The Lamb of God"

Julie Andrews "Wexford Carol"

The Christmas season is upon us once again.  Scores of shoppers are parading in the malls and retail outlets to officially begin their Christmas shopping on Black Friday.  Truthfully speaking, many people have already begun Christmas shopping before today.  Today marks the official day that Christmas shopping technically begins right before Christmas.  Many shoppers are looking for the cheapest bargains as they shop today.  I'm thankful I'm not part of that shopping crowd.  I have no desire to be a part of that shopping frenzy that takes place every year right before Christmas.   I don't mind Christmas shopping to a certain extent, but I'm not going to dive into it today.  I have no problem whatsoever with Christmas shopping nor gift giving.  The tragedy is Christmas has become so commercialized in our culture today that we've forgotten what the true meaning of Christmas is all about.  Christmas is about the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ who came to this earth to die for the sins of man.  If it wasn't for his birth, Christmas wouldn't have any significant meaning in our world.  It would be a purely pagan holiday. 

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.  I surely did.  Between now and Christmas I'll be featuring YouTube posts playing our favorite Christmas carols this time of year. I'll also be sharing thoughts from scripture concerning the birth of Christ.  I will also be writing posts about Christmas traditions as well.  I hope everyone has a wonderful day today and I hope you enjoy the Christmas season that's upon us.  Most of all, don't forget the reason why we celebrate Christmas which is Christ Jesus.

Happy of Thanksgiving!


I want to take this time to wish all the blog readers a very Happy Thanksgiving today.  Today there are numerous events taking place in our country such as the Thanksgiving Day parade and NFL football.  Many families will be gathered together feasting on turkey, dressing, ham, and the works.  They will be sitting down and watching football today.  As we spend time with our families, let's not forget to take time to give thanks for all God's blessings that's been bestowed upon America.  God's good to us.  I'm thankful for the privilege we have to participate in this blessed event.  Thanksgiving shouldn't be celebrated just on the fourth Thursday every November.  Thanksgiving should be celebrated every day in our lives.  Those who know the Lord have a reason to celebrate Thanksgiving everyday.  I'm thankful for America.  I wouldn't want to live in any other country.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Governors Have Power to Stop Obamacare

Governors have power to stop Obamacare | Times 247

Governors have power to stop Obamacare Republican Governor's Association Chairman Bob McDonnell (R-VA)

Since the re-election of Barack Obama two weeks ago, the battle to defeat Obamacare is going to have to take a different turn considering the fact that we still have a divided Congress with Republicans controlling the House and the Democrats controlling the Senate.  It's up to the governors in each of the individual states to stand up to Washington and the Obama administration to oppose Obamacare.  It's unconstitutional for Congress to mandate to the states to implement Obamacare.  Governors can plead the Tenth Amendment to opposes Obamacare.  How many governors will stand up to oppose Obamacare being imposed upon their respective states remains a mystery.  Click on the above link to read the story.

Twinkie Talks Fail as Hostess and Baker's Union are Unable to Reach Agreement

Twinkie talks fail as Hostess and baker’s union are unable to reach agreement - NY Daily News

 FILE - In this Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, file photo, Twinkies baked goods are displayed for sale at the Hostess Brands' bakery in Denver, Colo. Hostess Brands Inc. and its second largest union will go into mediation to try and resolve their differences, meaning the company won't go out of business just yet. The news came Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, after Hostess moved to liquidate and sell off its assets in bankruptcy court citing a crippling strike last week. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)

Yesterday the union went into mediation with Hostess company officials with hopes to salvage 18,000 union jobs.  The maker of Twinkies and Ding Dongs said late today that it failed to reach an agreement with its second biggest union.  As a result, Hostess plans on continuing with a hearing on Wednesday on which a bankruptcy court judge will decide if the company can shutter its operations.  The renewed talks between Hostess and the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers, and Grain Millers International Union came after the company declared last week that it could move to wind down its business and start selling off its assets in bankruptcy court.  The company cited a crippling strike on November 9 by the union, which represents about 30% of its Hostess workers. 

Hostess shut down its three dozen plants late last week after it said the strike by the baker's union hurt its ability to maintain normal production.  The baker's union stated that the company's demise was the result of years of mismanagement and workers have made steep concessions over the years.  Hostess, which has been weighed down by management turmoil, rising labor costs, and changing tastes of Americans, is making its second trip through Chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring.  Click on the above link from the NY Daily News to read the full story.

Bill O'Reilly: "Is Traditional America Gone For Good?"

Bill O'Reilly: Is Traditional America Gone For Good?

Starting today I will be featuring Talking Points from Bill O'Reilly, the host of the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News.  The O'Reilly Factor comes on Fox News every night at 8:00 p.m. EST or 7:00 p.m. CST, whichever time zone you're in.  I've listened to Bill O'Reilly for several years dating back to 2002.  I first listened to him on radio during the fall of 2002.  I started listening to the O'Reilly Factor on Fox around 2006 or 2007.  I don't always concur with all his viewpoints, but when he's right on target, he's right on target. 

On November 12th's Talking Points segment, Bill O'Reilly posed the question, "Is Traditional America gone For Good.?  He was speaking of the latest election two weeks ago and the breakdown of the poll concerning demographics.  One statistic that he pointed out that was very staggering was the fact that 71% of the Hispanics voted for Obama.  That's very surprising given the fact that Hispanics don't share the same values in regards to the traditional family unit as the Democratic politicians do in Washington.  He spoke of the secular-progressive influence in America and how it affects the younger generation today.

Is traditional American gone for good?  Unless there's a divine intervention from God, I say that's probably so.  I don't say that happily.  He mentioned that we need a great politician to help turn things around in our country.  I disagree with O'Reilly on that point.  America's hope doesn't rely on Washington D.C. or the elected elite.  The truth of the matter is, they're part of America's problem.  What's even worse are those segments of the population that have-re-elected Barack Obama and other career incumbent politicians.  I know that Mitt Romney wasn't an ideal candidate.  He was far from it.  I personally don't believe he ran to win the election.  The Romney campaign was a farce.  However, that doesn't justify the re-election of Barack Obama.  Obama's opposed to everything that built this great nation.  He's a socialist who's been busy in fundamentally transforming the nation the last four years.  There's no telling what the next four will hold.

It's time that Christians and conservatives recognize that electing "Christians" to public office isn't what's going to solve America's ills.  Over 33 years ago, Christian organizations such as the Moral Majority and the Christian Coalition rallied to elect "Christian" men and women to office.  The truth of the matter is some of those "Christian" men and women who have been elected have been corrupted by Washington.  They're very passive and worthless when it comes to fighting the agenda of Barack Obama.  All these elected elite care about is winning re-election and all the perks and benefits that go with it.  Politicians will disappoint us.  There's virtually no difference between the Democrats and Republicans in Washington.  Both play their role in the takedown of America.  We can't place our faith in politicians anymore, regardless what label they wear.  Our country has been so dumbed down concerning our history and our spiritual heritage that it's appalling.  What's worse is that as a result of secularism, which has been taught to America's young people for the last few generation, has had a negative impact upon America.  More and more Americans no longer believe in absolutes.  More and more Americans have been conditioned to accept the lie that abortion is a "religious issue" or that "gays" shouldn't be denied the right to marry.  It's abominable.  Unless a Heaven-sent revival comes to America, she is finished.

Ohioans’ Food Stamp Aid to be Reduced

Ohioans’ food stamp aid to be reduced - Toledo Blade

It hasn't been quite a week yet and the Toledo Blade announced that Ohioans can receive an unwelcome surprise in January--$50 less every month in assistance.  Yet Ohio voted to give Barack Obama another four years in office.  Anybody that believes that Barack Obama is going to take care of them are fooling themselves.  President Obama is going to take care of anybody but himself and his cronies.  He hasn't shown me that he's concerned for the average American family any more than his predecessor, George W. Bush, or Obama's rival in this election (Mitt Romney).  Anybody in Ohio that voted for Obama thinking that he's going to take care of their needs are in for a huge surprise.  The truth of the matter is there isn't one politician in Washington that you can trust.  They're all about keeping their seats in Washington--including President Obama.

Texas Megachurch Pastor Says Obama Will 'Pave Way' for Antichrist

Texas Megachurch Pastor Says Obama Will 'Pave Way' for Antichrist

Dr. Robert Jeffres, pastor at the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas

Dr. Robert Jeffres, a Texas megachurch pastor stated the Sunday before the presidential election that if Barack Obama is re-elected as president, it could lead to the rise of the antichrist.  Dr. Jeffres pointed out that Barack Obama isn't the antichrist because the antichrist's poll numbers will be much higher than Obama's.  However, Jeffres pointed out that the course that Obama is choosing to lead this nation is paving the way for the future antichrist.  He said it is high time that Christians stand up and push back against this evil that's overtaking our nation.  I say Amen to what he said.  I myself don't believe Barack Obama is the antichrist but I believe he's the vessel being used to pave the way for the coming of the antichrist, unless the Lord intervenes.  All I do know is that the future of this nation is in the Lord's hands. 

I applaud Dr. Jeffres having the audacity to make a bold statement.  I know it's probably very difficult to do so in a large Southern Baptist church.  However, truth is truth regardless whether it's preached in a Southern or Independent Baptist church.  He's also received controversy from the past statements he made about Mormonism being a cult and the fact that Mitt Romney isn't a Christian.  He's right on both of those points as well.  He originally endorsed Texas Governor Rick Perry when he ran in the primary earlier this year.  When Romney secured the GOP nomination, he supported Romney.

In 59 Philadelphia Voting Divisions, Mitt Romney Received Zero Votes

In 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes - Philly.com

Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney

I made the statement following the election last week that I wouldn't be surprised if there was voter fraud that took place during the election.  Any state that doesn't require some form of voter I.D. is bound to have some election fraud.  I can't prove that but if the truth were known, we would probably be surprised.  I do recognize that various neighborhoods in Philadephia are Democratic and predominantly black.  However, it makes you wonder.  Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia who has studied black precincts, stated that he's occassionally seen 100 percent of the vote go towards the Democratic candidate, such as Chicago and Atlanta, for example in 2008 when John McCain was the GOP candidate.  Sabato said, "I'd be surprised if there weren't a handful of precincts that didn't cast a vote for Romney." "But the number of zero precincts in Philadelphia deserves examination," Sabato added.  I believe he's right.

Obama's Secret (and Illegal) Regulatory Bomb

Obama's secret (and illegal) regulatory bomb | The Daily Caller

Get ready for some new job-crushing regulations that will make it very difficult if not impossible for business to thrive in the marketplace.  One thing's for certain: If the key provisions of Obamacare are fully implemented in 2014, it will cause the economy to go into a nosedive.  Businesses will have to lay off hundreds of employees because the onerous regulations that accompanies Obamacare will make the costs of operating a business ever more costly.  And that's just from one bill.  There are all types of stipulations from other laws passed under the Obama administration, such as the Dodd-Frank bill passed in 2010.  Also you have these agencies such as the EPA that bypass Congress and create their own regulations on small businesses in the private sector.

Phil Kerpen mentioned that under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, President Obama is required by law to submit his regulatory agenda to Congress twice a year, April and October.  Consequently, President Obama has been breaking the law and hasn't been submitting his regulatory agenda to Congress.  This is just another example of President Obama bypassing the Congress.  He doesn't care about the rule of law or the Constitution.  He only uses the Constitution when it suits his agenda.  Otherwise, he ignores it.  President Obama has signed numerous executive orders as president.  America is being set up to have a dictatorship running it.  You may not believe it but just wait.

Obama: My Re-Election Proves Americans Want the Wealthy to Pay More in Taxes

Obama: My Re-Election Proves Americans Want the Wealthy to Pay More in Taxes | Video | TheBlaze.com

Obama: My Re Election Proves Americans Want the Wealthy to Pay More in Taxes

President Obama before addressing a crowd

President Obama stated in his weekly address today that his re-election proves that Americans want taxes raised on the wealthy combined with spending cuts to reduce the deficit.  Obama stated the we can't cut our way to prosperity.  He claimed if we're serious about the deficit we have to combine spending cuts with revenue.  Revenue is a buzz word for raising taxes.  One thing I"ll assure you: Taxes will be raised.  It won't just be on the wealthy that have incomes of $250,000 or above.  Everyone will be impacted negatively with raised taxes, including the poor.  However, that's his goal.  He is a believer in the redistribution of wealth.  That's what will take place in his second term.  He's a Marxist in his thinking and we're seeing America being transformed into a Marxist country.  He's already taken charge of the mortgage and auto industry.  He tries to dictate what our economy should produce and sell, such as so-called "clean energy" with solar energy, for example.  I'm all for exploring alternative methods of energy, but it's not the place of the federal government to dictate what should be sold in marketplace. 

President Obama's re-election Tuesday evening is no affirmation that Americans want taxes raised on the wealthy.  Even if it were true, that still is wrong.  Nobody has a right to take from the wealthy because they are wealthy.  Those that earned their wealth honestly deserve to keep their wealth.  They shouldn't be penalized and have to pay a progressive tax rate because they are wealthy.  I have an idea for the president. (which I know he won't listen to).  We should abolish the current tax code and institute a flat tax where everybody that works a job should pay a certain percentage in taxes.  Those that earn more will pay more in real dollars, but at least they're not being punished because they earn more money.  That's just right.  I know there are wealthy crooks in America.  But that doesn't justify punishing an entire class of wealthy people simply because they make more money.  Those that made their money dishonestly should be punished individually for it.  It shouldn't affect those that haven't cheated when it comes to earning money. 

I said this last year and I'll say it again: President Obama and his Democratic cohorts should pay 40% extra above what they already pay in taxes.  Since they're such stern believers that the wealthy should pay more in taxes, then they need to lead the way.  It's rank hypocrisy for the president and Congressional leaders such as Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, to name a few, to suggest the wealthy should pay more in taxes without paying more themselves.  I'm very perturbed over the very pathetic state of affairs in Washington, D.C. today.

Speaker Boehner: It's Time For You to Step Aside

Boehner: 'Mr. President, This Is Your Moment. We’re Ready to Be Led' | CNSNews.com

John Boehner crying on 60 Minutes

Boehner to Obama: This is Your Moment

On Wednesday House Speaker John Boehner held a press briefing on Capitol Hill where he congratulated Barack Obama on his second term victory Tuesday evening.  He indicated that Republicans in Congress were ready to be led by him.  "Mr. President, this is your moment, we're ready to be led," said Boehner "Not as Democrats or Republicans but as Americans.  We want you to lead not as a liberal or conservative but as president of the United States of America."  So Mr. Boehner is going to roll over and allow President Obama to have his way.  At least that's the way it appears.  Boehner knows how the president's going to lead.  That's no surprise.  He's going to lead like a Marxist.  As far as the "liberal" and "conservative" labels are concerned, it's not so much the ideology that's important.  What's important is that the president leads according to the U.S. Constitution.  That's something the last several presidents have ignored.  President Obama is no exception.  Obama said when campaigning for president the first time that he wants to fundamentally transform America.  He's doing a great job accomplishing his agenda with no genuine Republican opposition.

Speaker Boehner, if you're truly willing to be led by President Obama, then you need to step aside and resign as House Speaker.  We don't need a crybaby leading the House for another two years.  We know what you're idea of working with the president means.  It means rolling over and allowing President Obama to have his way.  You haven't followed through any of the campaign promises you made in 2010 when you and fellow House Republicans unveiled the document, "A Pledge to America."  Government keeps on growing and spending is still out of control.  You won't utilize the power the Constitution has given to you to defund unconstitutional spending, such as Obamacare, for example.  We can't afford another two years of your compromising with the president.  You're a joke.  You need to go back to Ohio to run a business where you live, which is something you do best. 

Go onto Jim Sumpter's website at JimSumpter.com and you'll see a picture of House Speaker John Boehner wearing a dress.  It says, "Send Boehner a dress.  He already has enough mascara."  It says on the right hand corner to click for the address.  Please do so and you can send him a dress.  Finally, click on the above link from CNSNews.com and read the full story.

Top House Conservative: Romney ‘Most Liberal Republican Nominee in History’

Top House Conservative: Romney ‘Most Liberal Republican Nominee in History’ | CNSNews.com

Rep. Jim JordanRep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who was the chairman on the House Republican Study Committee (which is the caucus of the conservatives in the House) said on Wednesday that the Republican presidential campaign of Mitt Romney was hampered because he was the most liberal Republican nominee in the history of the United States.  That is true.  However, I'm not going to insinuate that the only reason Mitt Romney lost was because he was a liberal Republican nominee.  I believe there were other factors involved such as possible voting fraud, the influx of illegal immigration over the years, and the fact that an increasing number of Americans just don't care.  There's a segment of people who believe the government owes them a living.  We're seeing more people that feel they are entitled.  I believe those are a few of the reasons that Barack Obama won re-election.  It's tragic but I do believe it's part of God's judgment on America.  We're living in dark days and it's high time to realize that trying to change Washington is virtually impossible, from the vantage point I'm seeing.  If it were a possibility, we would need voters all across the nation to jump on board and vote out their incumbents.  But we don't have those kind of voters.  There aren't too many voters that will vote on principle.  Too many vote based on what feels good to them.  I don't know all the results yet to render my opinion on why Romney lost the election.  I do know the fact given he was a weak candidate who ran a very poor campaign didn't help his cause.  Time will reveal the truth.

Election Coverage Fox News (Part 1)

Fox News Announces Re-election of Barack Obama

Last night was a sad night.  As soon as I heard Fox News call the state of Ohio for Barack Obama, I knew that the election was over with.  There was no way that Mitt Romney had a chance to recover once Ohio was called for Obama.  With Obama winning Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Iowa, I knew that the only chance Mitt Romney would have to pull off this election would be to win Virginia, Ohio, and Florida.  Romney had no other choice.  I knew it would be an impossibility given the fact that Florida and Ohio were too close to call.  Everything was rolling into Obama's favor.  What does the future hold?  It looks very bleak.  If God doesn't intervene in the next four years, then America won't be the America we once knew.

Will the 2012 Election be the Most Important Election in Our Nation's History?


For years I've heard many conservative media pundits proclaim how important this particular election is.  I've heard in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, to name a few, that this is the most important election ever in the history of our country.  I've heard radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and others make that statement.  I remember hearing in 2004 the importance of that particular presidential year.  America was fighting a "war on terror" in both Afghanistan and Iraq.  There were a couple of Supreme Court justices that were slated to retire.  We heard that it was important to re-elect George W. Bush because the balance of the court was dependent upon whom we elected as president.  If John Kerry were to win, then liberal, pro-abortion justices would be appointed and it would tip the bala-nce of the court to the leftists.  We also heard that year that we needed Bush because we were fighting two wars in the Middle East and we needed a Commander-in-chief that wasn't soft on terrorism.  Kerry was a very liberal Senator from Massachusetts and many were fearful that Bush's agenda to fight terrorism would be rolled back if Kerry were to win the presidency that year.  Bush happened to win the election that year.

The sad truth of the matter is that regardless whom we elect to the Oval Office or in Congress, the socialist agenda moves forward regardless if it's George W. Bush or Barack Obama.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has stated that elections don't matter.  I'm afraid there's a lot of truth in that.  Why?  Because so-called conservative Republicans do nothing to stop the Obama agenda.  They allow President Obama and his Democratic colleagues to have their way.  House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor are worthless as House leaders.  Neither one have accomplished what they said they would do once the Republicans assumed control of the House in 2011.  The size and scope of government continues growing.  Federal spending keeps on ever increasing.  Obamacare is still fully-funded.  That's in spite of the fact Republicans have the power in the House to eliminate wasteful spending from the budget.  There's no difference between the Democrats and Republicans on the federal level.  With that being the case, how significant is this electio?.

Today is election day.  Don't forget to take time to vote.  We definitely need to vote out Barack Obama.  If he's re-elected today, then be prepared to see this country become a fascist nation.  Mitt Romney is far from perfect.  He's liberal himself.  I don't trust Romney.  However, I would rather take a chance on a man who has good family values and knows how the economy should run rather than vote for the incumbent president who is married to the ideology of Marxism.  He embraces the philosophy of Saul Alinsky.  I'm not going to say that this is the most important election ever in the history of this nation.  However, I'm going to say that it's clearly evident if we allow Barack Obama another four years as president, there's no telling what will happen to America.

Voter Fraud Charges Begin in Ohio

Voter Fraud Charges Begin in Ohio

According to Newsmax, there are possible voter fraud charges in the state of Ohio, which is a battleground state essential to the winner of this year's presidential election.  Both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have high stakes in the Buckeye state.  Alex Triantafilou, a member of the elections board and chairman of the County's Republican party, told Fox News that election officials fear more widespread fraud. 

Nothing surprises me.  I expect there will be a lot of election fraud tomorrow.  President Obama is going to do everything he can to maintain his hold on power.  So don't be surprised to find a lot of fraud taking place in tomorrow's election.  Click on the above link to read the full story from Newsmax.

Gallup: Obama's Early Vote Advantage Collapses 22-Points Over 2008

Gallup: Obama's Early Vote Advantage Collapses 22-Points Over 2008

President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney at a presidential debate.   According to Gallup, GOP candidate Mitt Romney is leading President Barack Obama by seven points, 52% - 45% in early voting.  Almost 4 years ago, then Senator Barack Obama held a 15-point lead over Senator John McCain that year.  Of course Barack Obama went on to beat John McCain very comfortably in the election that year.  This doesn't mean that Mitt Romney will win the election because he's leading in early voting.  The momentum appears to be headed in Mitt Romney's favor.  If the momentum carries in the swing states in the Midwest, then Romney has a chance to win the presidency.  Let's pray that Romney wins.   To read the full story, click on the link above.

Rasmussen: Romney Takes Lead in Ohio, 50-48

According to a Rasmussen poll two days ago, Mitt Romney takes a slim 50% - 48% lead over President Barack Obama in the state of Ohio.  The battle for the electoral vote comes down to a handful of states such as Nevada, Colorado, and Iowa, for example.  Ohio is one of those states.  Ohio is a toss-up state in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral Colleges Projection.  Based on the current projections, Romney would have to win Wisconsin if he loses Ohio in order to move into the White House.

George McGovern Dead: Former Senator And Presidential Candidate Dies At 90

George Mcgovern DeadFormer Democratic Presidential candidate George McGovern in 1972

George McGovern, the former Democratic presidential candidate who lost in a landslide to GOP incumbent Richard Nixon in 1972, died a few days ago.  He was 90 years old.  McGovern was the 1972 Democratic presidential candidate from South Dakota who only won 17 electoral votes in 1972.  He was a longtime Progressive who was the most liberal candidate to ever run for president at the time in the Democratic Party.  He was a staunch opponent of the Vietnam War.  As a candidate he called for tax reform and national health insurance.  He was proud to call himself liberal even though many Democrats tried to shy away from that label.  He was also a longtime U.S. Senator of South Dakota from 1963 to 1981.  He lost the Senate race in 1980 to James Abdnor.  1980 was also the year that Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter for the presidency.

Former Independent Presidential candidate Ross Perot has endorsed GOP candidate in this year's presidential election.  He says that we can't endure four more years of Barack Obama.  He's exactly right, even though his third party candidacy in 1992 and 1996 helped ensure Bill Clinton's victory in the presidential election each of those years.  Ross Perot is a businessman who ran as a third-party candidate in 1992 and 1996.  Perot garnered around 18.9% of the popular vote to ensure George H.W. Bush's loss to President Clinton in 1992.

Obama's Passive-Aggressive Second-Term Policy Agenda: ObamaCare, Tax Hikes

Obama's Passive-Aggressive Second-Term Policy Agenda: ObamaCare, Tax Hikes - Investors.com

If you think President Obama's first term has been bad, you haven't seen anything yet if he wins a second term.  Much of the legislation that has been passed during his first term will come to fruition during his second term such as the full implementation of Obamacare in 2014.  Also, if the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire at the end of this year, then automatic tax increases will take place once the new years begins in 2013.  That will not be good for an already shaky economy.  Consequently, that's the agenda of the Obama administration.  Everything that's taking place is for the purpose to destroy capitalism.

Former Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter Dies at 82

Arlen Specter, former Pa. senator, dies at 82 - Washington Times

 Former Senator Arlen Specter

Former Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter has died at his home in Philadelphia from complications of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  He was 82.  He died a week ago.  He was a former liberal Republican who turned Democrat in 2009 two months after he and two other Republican Senators voted for Mr. Obama's economic stimulus package.  The veteran Senator from Pennsylvania was first elected as a Republican to the Senate in 1980.  Many consider him as a voice of "moderation" in the Senate, but he was liberal on many issues.  He was very supportive of the U.S. Supreme Court case, Roe vs. Wade.  Even though he was liberal, he did help defend Justice Clarence Thomas when he was before the U.S. Senate in 1991 to replace the retiring justice Thurgood Marshall.  In 2010 Specter ran against former Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak and lost to him in the primary.  If Specter remained Republican, he more than likely would've lost to now Senator Pat Toomey in the GOP primary.

Obama's Ring: There is no God But 'Allah'

Obama’s ring: ‘There is no god but Allah’

Barack Obama's Gold Band (World Net Daily)

You wonder why a certain percentage of Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim?  Well, World Net Daily, a conservative news website, is shedding some light on why some Americans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim.  World Net Daily features an article authored by Jerome Corsi mentioning about Barack Obama's ring that he wears.  The website reports that Barack Obama has been wearing this ring at least since the early 80's, when he was a student at Occidental College.  It also says it's the same ring that Michelle Robinson placed on his finger when they wed in 1992.  The ring is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada.  "There is no god except Allah."  It's a gold band that he wears on his ring finger.  Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person's rejection of all other gods."  I think this says a lot about Obama.  I believe he's a closet Muslim giving the pretense that he goes to a Christian church.  The truth of the matter is that Trinity United Church of Christ, which was where Obama attended for 20 years, is no Christian church.  It's a left-wing church that espouses Black Liberation Theology.  Jeremiah Wright, Obama's former pastor, claimed that America was a racist nation when he pastored that church.

Surrounded by Celebrities, Obama Acknowledges Poor Debate Performance

Surrounded by celebrities, Obama acknowledges poor debate performance | WashingtonExaminer.com#.UHLBdk3A9B8#.UHLBdk3A9B8

At a celebrity fundraiser this past Sunday night in Los Angeles, President Obama acknowledges his poor debate performance against GOP candidate Mitt Romney and asked donors for their political support.  The event began with a concert at the Nokia Theater for about 6000 donors.  Some of the donors there were Jon Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder, and Katy Perry, to name a few. 

President Obama can offer all types of excuses for his poor debate performance last Wednesday.  One of the reasons for his poor performance is that he doesn't have a good record to defend.  Also, without the teleprompter, President Obama isn't a very effective speaker or debator.  President Obama does well at giving stump speeches before large crowds, but when it comes to speaking about issues of substance, President Obama stumbles at it.  President Obama's notion of America isn't the same as the typical American's view of America.  If you want to know how President Obama thinks, then read Saul Alinsky's book entitled, Rules for Radicals
