"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

Friday, March 21, 2008


"For the past 15 months he has campaigned for the Democratic presidential nomination as a kumbaya-humming racial uniter, yet for the past 20 years he has sat regularly in a church overseen by a racial divider — indeed, as Obama acknowledges, by a racial divider who has doubled as a personal mentor (“like an uncle,” in Obama’s words). Wright officiated at Obama’s wedding. He baptized Obama’s children. He served as a no-pay campaign adviser until quotes from his sermons began circulating on the Internet and Obama, in damage-control mode, urged him to leave.

Yes, but a lot of people in the pews don’t necessarily agree with everything their preachers say.

Of course. Yet a lot of people in the pews do leave (these days are leaving in big numbers) their churches because of the routine message dished out from the pulpit — be it ideological, socio-cultural, liturgical, or whatever. Besides, not many people have mentors with whom they viscerally or deeply disagree." Ross Mackenzie

Mona Charen writes of false equivalence.

Linda Chavez says Obama won't confront biggest problems for blacks and expected more from Barack: "Like many Americans, I had hoped that his candidacy might transcend the racial divide that has separated this country for too many generations. I disagree with Sen. Obama on virtually every important public policy issue, and yet I have watched every televised speech he's made and every debate with a sense of admiration. I want him to succeed in his party's nomination battle, even when I fear, as a staunch Republican, that he might be the more difficult candidate to defeat in November. But he has profoundly disappointed me this week in his major address on race.

The speech, which attempted to quell the furor surrounding his spiritual advisor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, presented an opportunity for Obama to tackle the real issue facing blacks today, which has little to do with race. But instead, Obama fell back on the tired formulas of the past.

But more fundamentally, Obama avoided dealing in any meaningful way with the single most important issue facing the black community -- the breakdown of the black family. And this issue, and its consequences, explains far more about the failure of blacks to thrive today than racism or lack of social spending.

David Limbaugh doesn't think Obama is out of the woods yet.

Barack Obama is nothing if not smooth. He seamlessly turned a would-be apology over his pastor's racism into an indictment against society's racism.

It wasn't, "Jeremiah Wright was wrong, and I was wrong for going to his church for 20 years despite his apparently unforgiving spirit, his racist and anti-American utterances, and his vulgarity, including taking the Lord's name in vain from his very pulpit -- the one venue above all on God's sacred planet that such irreverence is inalterably forbidden. No matter what racial injustices have been perpetrated over the years by mankind toward mankind, they are never an excuse for disrespecting God, and especially in His house."

Instead, Obama said, essentially, "I reject many of Rev. Wright's remarks as divisive and perhaps even unfairly critical of America, but you have to admit, he has a point."

You can talk all you want to about Obama's "audacity of hope" theme, but the only audacity I heard in his speech was his lecturing Americans on their racism instead of explaining his longtime intimate relationship with Wright.


"The same scenario has been replayed time and again throughout the centuries. History repeats itself not only because human nature genetically repeats itself generation after generation, but because the masses possess a superb ability to ignore the lessons of the past. Which is a rather nice deal for politicians, because it allows them to keep right on recycling the same old ideas that have already brought so much suffering in the past."

“Everything is new if you are ignorant of history. That is why ideas that have failed repeatedly in centuries past reappear again, under the banner of ‘change,’ to dazzle people and sweep them off their feet.”
-- Thomas Sowell

The Speech Didn't Work

Early on and for most of his run for presidency Obama claimed his run was not about race, despite sprinkling in comments on race here and there.

Now he is playing the race card - big time.

Rich Galen writes about Obama and the speech that didn't work.

What's more, he keeps accidentally stepping in the excrement he is shoveling out.

For instance, after throwing gramma off the train and under the bus , for good measure, he put the bus in reverse and ran over her again. But, in doing so, he made sure the bus swerved from curb to curb, cutting a wide swath to ensure that he not only got gramma but that he got whitey along the way too:
"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't.

But she is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there's a reaction that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away, and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that's just the nature of race in our society."

The harder he tries to dig himself out, he finds having dug himself deeper in sh umm - the doo-doo pile.

Bobby Eberle
writes, "Obama has built his campaign around a message of "coming together" and "moving beyond race." However, his speech did nothing to show that he, the candidate of change, has done any moving at all. In fact, despite specific words in which he denounced some of Wright's comments, the overall message of his speech was that Wright's comments were OK and that we just need to "understand" why he made them. Sorry Barack... you had your chance to move "beyond race," and you blew it.

Michelle Malkin
characterizes Barack's big speech in Philadelphia this way: "For all of his supposedly unique and transcendent understanding of race in America, Obama's talk amounted to the same old, same old. The Glowbama mystique has gone the way of the Emperor's clothes. Instead of accountability, we got excuses. Instead of disavowal of demagoguery, we got whacked with the moral equivalence card. Instead of rejecting the Blame America mantra of left-wing black nationalism, we got more Blame Whitey. Same old, same old.

Finally, Charles Krauthammer says, "But Obama was supposed to be new. He flatters himself as a man of the future transcending the anger of the past as represented by his beloved pastor. Obama then waxes rhapsodic about the hope brought by the new consciousness of the young people in his campaign."

Then, Krauthammer wants Obama to answer this: "If Wright is a man of the past, why would you expose your children to his vitriolic divisiveness? This is a man who curses America and who proclaimed moral satisfaction in the deaths of 3,000 innocents at a time when their bodies were still being sought at Ground Zero. It is not just the older congregants who stand and cheer and roar in wild approval of Wright's rants, but young people as well. Why did you give $22,500 just two years ago to a church run by a man of the past who infects the younger generation with precisely the racial attitudes and animus you say you have come unto us to transcend?"

Legitimate questions, I think.

Obama's Speech

Newt Gingrich comments on Barack's speech:
"Illinois Democratic Sen. Barack Obama gave one speech in Philadelphia this week, but he made two different presentations.

The first was an apology and attempted explanation for his 20-year relationship with a preacher, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who is viciously anti-American, racist and anti-Semitic and for his membership in a church which had honored Louis Farrakhan.

The second presentation was an eloquent but fundamentally inadequate speech about racism and poverty in America.

Sen. Obama's first presentation was very troubling. It offers two possibilities for judging his character, both of which are unsettling.

The first possibility is that Sen. Obama did not notice the racism, anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism coming from the pulpit in 20 years of attending Pastor Wright's sermons. He failed to register as troubling Pastor Wright's trip to Libya with Louis Farrakhan to see Muammar Qaddafi or the church's giving Farrakhan a lifetime achievement award.

But if this is true, it is a devastating insight into any possibility that Sen. Obama is ready to be President. How could we expect him to act with judgment and responsibility in Iran and Iraq, to pick a Supreme Court Justice or to undertake any other complex act under the pressing reality of being president when he could not notice reality in 20 years at his church.

On the other hand, if he noticed the goings on in his church but failed to act on them, what does that tell us about his honesty and his courage?

After all, it was Sen. Obama himself who set the standard. As Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby noted, "When Don Imus uttered his infamous slur on the radio last year, Obama cut him no slack. Imus should be fired, he said. 'There's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group.'"

I understand this standard. When I first became speaker of the House, we hired a House historian who turned out to have written very controversial things. We asked for her resignation within 24 hours of learning what she had done.

Clearly, when it comes to Pastor Wright, Sen. Obama has fallen short of his own standard by about 20 years.

Still, the fascinating opportunity Sen. Obama offers is to begin a genuine dialogue on race and poverty in America.

The sections of his speech on race and poverty were eloquent -- but they were fundamentally inaccurate and inadequate.

As such, they create a real opportunity to engage Sen. Obama in a national dialogue about why poverty exists on the Southside of Chicago, why Detroit has been a disaster and why there is so much crime in Philadelphia.

This is the best opportunity conservatives have had in our lifetime to engage a serious politician of the left on a national dialogue about how to help every American pursue happiness.

Sen. Obama's analysis in his Philadelphia speech was so filled with inaccuracies and was so inadequate in its proposed remedies that it must be responded to. However, the event could be the beginning of a major national effort to discuss how we can help poor people, poor neighborhoods and impoverished Americans.

African-Americans in particular have been impoverished by the bad government policies of Detroit. What would Sen. Obama do to reform the bad city government, failed public safety policies and terrible school system?

I find myself in general agreement with Newt. It should be pointed out here, and it's not unimportant, that Chicago, Detroit, and Philadelphia are Democrat intensive - very liberal - and have been run by Democrat politicians for many years. And this is the end result? This is what you get from being under the spell of "nannyism"? This is your idea of a cradle to grave utopia?

Media Myth: Crude Coverage

Media ignore OPEC’s control of oil market when covering America’s pain at the pump.

The media are making constant references to economic days gone by. They’ve exaggerated scares of another Great Depression or ‘70s-era stagflation. But there’s a real ‘70s villain still alive and well: OPEC. BMI compares coverage of “Big Oil” companies to the cartel.

"I can no more disown [Rev. Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."

Obama pastor's theology: Destroy 'the white enemy'

'If God is not for us and against whites ... we had better kill him'

Barack Obama's suddenly radioactive pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, has defended himself against charges of anti-Americanism and racism by referring to his foundational philosophy, the "black liberation theology" of scholars such as James Cone, who regard Jesus Christ as a "black messiah" and blacks as "the chosen people" who will only accept a god who assists their aim of destroying the "white enemy."

"If God is not for us and against white people," writes Cone, "then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community." (read more)

Overt Hostility to Homeschooling

By Albert Mohler

Parents in California have been on a rollercoaster of sorts in the wake of a state appeals court ruling that parents in that state have "no constitutional right" to homeschool their own children.

The decision is a direct threat to the rights of all California parents--and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the state's school superintendent pledged to find ways to protect homeschooling families. At the same time, an overt hostility to homeschooling has been unleashed, starting with a pair of retired professors who, in an op-ed published in The Los Angeles Times, called homeschooling parents "elitist" and "illiberal."

They wrote with venom and condescension about evangelical Christian parents who do not want their children indoctrinated with evolutionary theory and support for abortion rights.

Well, at least now we know who the real elitists are--and what their real agenda is. The threat in California is not just to the rights of homeschoolers, but of all parents. This decision must be overturned or remedied--and fast.


"When the assassination of John F. Kennedy horrified a nation, Black Muslim Minister Malcolm X declared it payback for America's violence in the world, a case of 'chickens coming home to roost.'

'Being an old farm boy myself,' said Malcolm, 'chickens coming home to roost never did make me sad, they've always made me glad.'

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright surely had Malcolm's words in mind when, the Sunday after the 9-11 massacre of 3,000 Americans, he declared this, too, was a case of 'America's chickens ... coming home to roost.'

"For 20 years, Barack has attended Wright's church, listened to his weekly sermons, entertained him in his home. Yet, says Barack, he never heard any racist rants at church, nor was he aware that Wright held so poisoned a view of his country.

Sorry, that is not credible. Wright is a famous preacher in black America, and Barack's denial he was aware of his views marks him down either as a dissembler or a man so obtuse he ought not be a security guard at Wal-Mart, let alone president of the United States.

It is easy now to understand why Michelle Obama, before Barack began to win, had never once been proud of her country. Who could be proud of the America that lives in the malignant imagination of the Rev. Wright?

Barack has now moved to separate himself from Wright's rants and removed him from the campaign roster. And he will likely be forced, with anguish, to turn his back on, repudiate, and reject his beloved friend and teacher.

But it is too late for that. For Wright has, for millions of Americans, filled in the blanks about Barack. Wright tells us the kind of company Barack keeps, the kind of men he holds close, the kind of attitudes and beliefs he finds acceptable, if not congenial." Read more.

Why Is Everyone Lying About Energy?

By Alan Caruba

"In terms of our enormous energy needs, Congress and the White House are seriously mismanaging America. Energy is the “master resource.” Without it everything else slows, stalls, and stops. The nation’s economy is entirely dependent on our ability to function in a world where oil, natural gas, and coal are global commodities. They don’t have a nationality. They have a price. And that is set by supply and demand, not the federal government.

In one of the most brilliant analysis of America's dependency on oil, "Gusher of Lies", by Robert Bryce, the author spells out the realities of a world in which, not just the United States, but all nations are going to be importing oil for as long as crude can be pumped from places around the world that include the Middle East, Russia, Africa, South America, and the deep ocean waters.

The problem is not a lack of known reserves of oil. The problem is the way the lack of knowledge by the consuming public is being exploited.

Yes, the price of a barrel of oil has reached and surpassed $107, but that price is subject to a myriad of factors that have nothing to do with scarcity. As OPEC president, Chakib Khelil, told reporters recently, "There is sufficient supply. There's plenty of oil there." He's telling the truth. One factor is the falling value of the U.S. dollar. Oil that is priced in Euros has not risen nearly as much.

"Energy independence," says Bryce, "is hogwash. From nearly any standpoint-economic, military, political, or environmental-energy independence makes no sense. Worse yet, the inane obsession with the idea of energy independence is preventing the U.S. from having an honest and effective discussion about the energy challenges it now faces." Read on....

NEWS FLASH: Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.

"The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds."

Is the Beginning of the End for Obama?

From A.J. Strata:
"It was the vague and vacuous ‘hope’ that revolved around his call for ‘change’. In the minds of a nation tired of the hyper-partisan sniping and stalemates Obama was going to transcend the ugliness and reach across the aisle to build consensus. Well, you can’t reach across to the opposition when your backers blame the opposition for developing AIDS so it can massacre people of color, or when the opposition is being blamed for being a empire bent on massacring the innocents across the world. How do you reach across the aisle with a Jeremiah Wright and his ilk wishing to put those on the other side of the aisle on the gallows for crimes against humanity?

But while that was the first spoiler for ‘brand Obama’, as Laura Ingraham so correctly notes Obama’s appeal, the real killer was the lie to cover it all up. Mark this down to Obama’s inexperience and his desire to dodge the hard issues instead of confront them. Obama now claims he had no knowledge of Wright’s comments, even while his campaign notes they have been trying to deal with it for a year at least.

Juan Williams was on with Chris Plant this morning and said Obama had to fix this by coming clean. Sorry, but it is too late. The window to deal with this right closed. Now, no matter how good the verbiage, Obama will be seen as trying to simply be the chameleon again. He will have no credibility trying to fix this after he put the blatant lie out first. There will be no credibility and there should be none. He is finished - but it will be a long slow death which takes the Dems down with him.

Obama will go to the convention with the most delegates, most states won and most votes - and he will be damaged goods. Polls already show him sinking against McCain and Clinton. His followers have been exposed to his spineless politician core, and are disillusioned. They put their hopes and prayers into a man who let them down. They did not buy into the dream to have it turned into the twisted world of Reverend Wright. And Michelle Obama has already shown, weeks ago, these anti-American views are at the heart of Obama’s campaign. The damage is done, there is no undoing it now.

Obama is too inexperienced to run a primary campaign, let alone the country. And his PR facade could not hold up forever. And now that Obama has been exposed as a spinning politician his bubble has burts and his campaign is over. It will just take a few more months for it to sink in to America’s psyche, and Obama’s groupies."

I don't know how he recovers from this. I think more stuff will bubble to the surface. It will get worse before it gets better - IF it gets better - and it very well may not. I think it will be a slow political death.

I heartily agree that it is too late to apologize and sweep it under the rug. The window of opportunity is closed. He will try to put it to rest tomorrow with his big speech on racial matters, but it will ring hollow to me, and I think to a lot of Americans.

"The Democrat Party is based on polarities! They look at the population in segments, and then they wonder why all the blacks are voting Obama and all the women are voting Hillary. This is what they have fostered!"

“Obama’s 100-day agenda would be designed, in part, to improve America’s global image. But there is something worse than being unpopular in the world—and that is being a pleading, panting joke. By simultaneously embracing appeasement, protectionism and retreat, President Obama would manage to make Jimmy Carter look like Teddy Roosevelt. "- - Michael Gerson

Character Matters

“In this age, when it is considered the height of sophistication to be ‘non-judgmental,’ one of the corollaries is that ‘personal’ failings have no relevance to the performance of official duties. What that amounts to, ultimately, is that character doesn’t matter. In reality, character matters enormously, more so than most things that can be seen, measured or documented.

Character is what we have to depend on when we entrust power over ourselves, our children, and our society to government officials. We cannot risk all that for the sake of the fashionable affectation of being more non-judgmental than thou.

Currently, various facts are belatedly beginning to leak out that give us clues to the character of Barack Obama. But to report these facts is being characterized as a ‘personal’ attack. Barack Obama’s personal and financial association with a man under criminal indictment in Illinois is not just a ‘personal’ matter. Nor is his 20 years of going to a church whose pastor has praised Louis Farrakhan and condemned the United States in both sweeping terms and with obscene language.

The Obama camp likens mentioning such things to criticizing him because of what members of his family might have said or done. But it was said, long ago, that you can pick your friends but not your relatives.

Obama chose to be part of that church for 20 years. He was not born into it. His ‘personal’ character matters, just as Eliot Spitzer’s ‘personal’ character matters—and just as Hillary Clinton’s character would matter if she had any.” —Thomas Sowell


Character, not circumstance, makes the person.

“The most unresolved problem of the day is precisely the problem that concerned the founders of this nation: how to limit the scope and power of government. Tyranny, restrictions on human freedom, come primarily from governmental restrictions that we ourselves have set up.” —Milton Friedman

39 of Montana’s elected officials have signed a resolution declaring that a Supreme Court ruling against the individual right of gun ownership would give their state grounds for leaving the union. It seems that when Montana’s settlers signed a statehood contract in 1889, one of the conditions was that the federal government agreed that individuals had the right to keep and bear arms. If the Supreme Court rules that firearm ownership is merely a state or “collective” right, Montana officials say that the statehood contract will have been breeched. “The U.S. would do well to keep its contractual promises to the states that the Second Amendment secures an individual right now as it did upon execution of the statehood contract,” Montana Secretary of State Brad Johnson said.
