During this year, you have heard such stories of President Obama leaving out the word “Creator” from the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence.  I was watching a box set to the Looney Tunes one day, and an episode of Porky Pig and Uncle Sam taking a stroll through Washington D.C. came on.  At the end, they recited the Preamble; however, they left out the word “Creator”.

I have looked through YouTube and cannot find it.  But what I did find was Porky reciting the Pledge of allegiance and leaving out “One nation under God”.  So, Porky did it first!

I chose this year not to give the two-party system the satisfaction of having my television tuned into a superfluous debate; although, I did read about them.  I have friends on Facebook putting up things such as “we want our country back” and little pictures of Mitt Romney with “so-and-so likes Mitt Romney”.  Change will not come until we change the idea of government, and government changes its philisophical idea of why it was created.  So many bureaucrats.  So much red tape.  Do you actually think that one man who is a flip-flopper can change all of this?

I read the transcript of the foreign policy debate and it was so superficial, it was ridiculous!  They aren’t discussing different ideas of foreign policy – only technicalities.  Two issues were never brought up in the debates – and thus far, haven’t been – that I wish were:

One, is that President Obama seems to think he has the authority to assassinate American citizens.  And Mitt Romney doesn’t disagree.

“Those who would sacrafice essential liberty and freedom for temporary safety, deserve neither.”
– Benjamin Franklin

Another is that the Pentagon authorized the flying of drones over U.S. soil.  And since it isn’t brought up in the debates, no American thinks another thought of the matter.

“The truth is the most important value we have.  If the truth does not endure – if the government murders truth – if we cannot trust the hearts of these people, then this is not the country I was born in, and it is certainly not the country that I want to die in.”
– Kevin Costner, JFK

I’ve learned after a long time of harsh words, bruised egos, and clenched fists – you cannot change the opinions of others; particularly family members.  Suffice it to say – I go out of my way to avoid politics with those close to me.  I was over at my sister’s house yesterday when my brother-in-law and sister started talking of Romney.  And all the things he was “going to do”.

Now I don’t have cable, which means I was spared the temptation and agony of watching the Republican Convention, but apparently, Romney supports the freedom of religion.  Cool!  He knows what the First Amendment says!  He’ll repeal Obamacare, lower taxes, and create jobs.  The same rhetoric that every politician spouts.

“Yeah, even the gays are getting behind Romney!” my brother-in-law said.  (This is all true.  It’s too stupid to make up.)

“Really?!” my sister asked incredulously.  At this point, my face was contorted in a tight grimace.  I was trying very hard to keep out of this.

My personal oath not with standing, I took the bait.

“That’s because he supported same-sex marriage while he was Governor of Massachusetts,” I informed.  My brother-in-law’s face looked like Forrest Gump standing at a black-board trying to compute algebra.

“He was governor of Massachusetts?” he asked.

That’s when I realized – I give up!  If people aren’t going to know enough to know what state the Republican Presidential Candidate was governor of, then you won’t believe the facts about Romney.

Romney and President Obama are like those two cars in a used car lot.  You look at the outside.  Look at the inside.  Take it for a test drive.  But even still, you can tell that something just isn’t right.

Oh, and was that a “teleprompter” I saw the the RNC?  So when Romney starts to use one, can we blast him for it?

Ron Paul possibly has raised more money than any other GOP candidate.  His supporters are among the most enthusiastic.  And yet, he still cannot win a primary.  Newt Gingrich’s campaign is floundering like a fish out of water, and by the way, for a fifty dollar fee you can get a picture taken with the man.  It remains to be seen as to what side Mitt Romney really is on.

And then there was Rick Santorum!  And Sarah Palin!

By now you have heard of Santorum’s “bullshit” comment and how New York Times journalist Jeff Zeleny asked Santorum if Romney “was the worst Republican in the country to run against Obama.”  By now you’ve heard of little Ricky’s tirade and how Zeleny was “distorting” Ricky’s words.  “That’s bullshit!”  And you can quote him on that.

However, in Racine, Wisconsin Santorum had this to say:  “Why would we put someone up who is uniquely – pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama. Why would Wisconsin want to vote for someone like that?”

Sounds pretty close to me.

There’s a couple of reasons why Santorum would characterize Zeleny’s question as “bullshit”.  1. Bad press is better than no press.  2. Fearing a loss to the GOP frontrunner, after his inflammatory comments, maybe Santorum felt he had to get on Romney’s good side.  You know, the best chance for the V.P. nomination.

Enter Sarah Palin with the obligatory ‘don’t cha know’ persona.

The former half-term governor of Alaska took to Fox News (where else) to voice her opinion.  Which brings me to another point: Do you know why Sarah Palin never goes to any other network other than Fixed News?  She would have to answer some real questions.

“It was good and it was strong and it was about time because he’s saying enough is enough of the liberal media twisting conservative’s words (Zeleny’s words were not ‘twisting’.  If Ms. Palin could read Santorum’s words verbatim – oh, that’s right, she doesn’t know what that word means),” Palin said on Fox News late Monday night. “I was like welcome to my world Rick. And good on ya, (‘don’t cha know’ moment) don’t retreat (this is as overplayed as Git-R-Done).”

Meanwhile, Santorum said that a conservative that doesn’t take on a journalist from the New York Times isn’t “worth your salt” – as far as he’s concerned.

No, Ricky, a conservative that wants to tackle the real issues – by this I mean the Party of No for the sake of saying “No” when it comes to party lines – and sticking to real conservatism (unlike George W. Bush) makes you a conservative.

Taking on a liberal journalist from the New York Times doesn’t make you a conservative, it makes you – well, I don’t know what it makes you, but not conservative.

“I was glad that he called out this reporter,” Palin said. “He and the other candidates, all of them, they need to do more of this because believe me the American people are tired of what the leftist media continues to do to conservatives.”

Wrong again, Sarah.  The American people don’t know what their tired of.  You want to label something as bullshit?  How about a foreign policy that props up despots all in the name of “freedom”?  How about turning a once secular nation into a civil war zone?  How about excluding evidence that the United States gave Iraq it’s biological weapons and nuclear technology?  How about the sacrifice of American’s right all in the name of a bogus ‘war on terrorism’?

Santorum couldn’t aim for the toilet bowl unless the Republican establishment was holding it for him.

Psalm 139:13-18 13 For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
   How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
   they would outnumber the grains of sand—
   when I awake, I am still with you.

As I have said before, I believe abortion to be outright murder; even to the equivalent of genocideSo hallelujah to anti-abortion campaigns during the Super Bowl (is spelling the words “Super Bowl” some sort of infringement on someone’s right to get rich?).  Why?  Because we can be bombarded with campaign smear-ads, commercials advertising for Budweiser, Miller, and God knows what else.  Why not speak the truth about abortion?

I came by this piece of information the other day at work and a little story follows with it.  My co-worker found the article on CNN (where else), and the following is verbatim (or at least close enough).

“Oh, you know that abortion ad I was telling you was going to air during the Super Bowl?” she says.

“Yeah,” I said.

“It’s and anti-abortion ad,” she responds.  And at this point, she goes on a tangent as to how despicable something such as an anti-abortion ad running on Super Bowl night is.

“Good,” I say.  “I’m glad it will be.”  A debate ensues and you can just about guess that she is “pro-choice”.  Which “pro-choice” really is an asinine position label, don’t you think?  I’m pro-choice!  I choose to have sex, so, I choose to raise the child and take responsibility for my actions.

At this point, she turns to look at me.  “Seven-year-olds will be watching the game,” she says.  And this is where her argument gets really inane.

“Yeah?”

“So how do you explain an anti-abortion ad to a seven-year-old?”

“I don’t know.  How do you explain commercials advertising alcoholic beverages, of which consumed in excess, leave the consumer inebriated?”  At this, she shut’s up.

The left’s argument for abortion is baseless.  When a society puts selfish behavior before the preservation of life, our morals really have hit the gutter.  Is it any wonder why the Apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians to “run from sexual sin”?  Because innocent babies are conceived to parents who never wanted them in the first place.

No, Mr. President, abortion is not that difficult of a “moral issue”.  It all comes down to someone’s willingness to accept responsibility for their actions!

So let me get this straight: President Obama doesn’t want to put the government in a place where it can “tell a woman what to do with her body”, but it can put a mandate on healthcare?! 

Politicians Political figures like Sarah Palin like to have a scripted dialogue with constituents.  Even worse, many of the questions don’t touch on issues that Americans should be concerned about.

For instance, while many Americans strive for work, keeping a roof over the heads of family members, food in their bellies, and we ourselves struggle with a budget; members of Congress are locked in a superfluous debate of raising the debt ceiling.

Granted, I believe that the United States has lived beyond its means for too many years, but politicians from both sides of the aisle are at fault, contrary to the House Speakers words of blaming President Obama.  During his speech to the nation, President Obama said that Ronald Reagan signed eighteen debt ceiling hikes and George W. Bush signed seven.  Where was the Republican or Tea Party opposition then?

The obvious fact is that we’ve kicked the tiger in ass and now we have to face his teeth.

Which brings me to this point: Since Americans are starving, looking for work, and living in “tent cities”, why are members of Congress so handsomely compensated for their services?  Seriously, it’s not like they’ve done a superb job.

Most members of Congress make $174,000.  Speaker of the House John Boehner makes $223,500.

So my question would be: Are you really worth that much?

Establishment to insert George W. Bush 2.0 as spoiler for Ron Paul Revolution

Every indication suggests that Bilderberg-approved Texas Governor Rick Perry is set to become the frontrunner in the Republican race to challenge Barack Obama for the presidency, illustrating once again how a shady, secretive and undemocratic global elite holds the reigns of true power while Americans are distracted by the delusional notion that they have a genuine choice in 2012.

Bilderberg Approved Perry Set to Become Presidential Frontrunner RickPerry

“Perry has said he will announce his decision soon. One member of his campaign team said he was closer than ever to joining the race and he was testing the prospects in the early caucus and primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. If he does stand, Republicans at the New Orleans conference predicted he would become the frontrunner of a so-far uninspiring field,” reports the London Guardian.

Texas Governor Perry, a protégé of Karl Rove, is very good at acting like a down-home populist, but that’s all it is – an act. Perry is George W. Bush 2.0.

While spewing Tea Party-style rhetoric about secession, shooting coyotes and courting the favor of Christian evangelicals, behind closed doors Perry has been quietly selling out Texas to globalist interests, auctioning off highways to foreign companies to turn them into profit-driven toll roads.

“Speculation that Perry is the Bilderberg group’s ace card was prompted by the current political climate, which can largely be gleaned from the fact that Perry is a longtime, unwavering supporter of the NAFTA Superhighway and related infrastructure projects,” wrote AFP’s Jim Tucker earlier this month. “These pave the way for the Bilderberg-supported North American Union (NAU) proposal that would merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico.”

Perry has also given enthusiastic support to former Mexican President Vicente Fox’s efforts to turn Texas into a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants. He also aggressively promoted the Rockefeller Foundation-backed HPV vaccination campaign in Texas that has led to deaths worldwide. David Rockefeller is a prominent Bilderberger, attending each annual meeting without fail.

Perry attended the June 2007 Bilderberg conference in Istanbul, Turkey, and in doing so violated the Logan Act, a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.

Look beyond the rhetoric and study what Perry has actually done in his role as Governor – he’s the ultimate globalist – his every action illustrates how he’s the diametric opposite to the image of the Tea Party populist that he attempts to portray. That’s why he’s the perfect pick for the globalists, someone who can suck in the trust of the American people only to stab them in the back upon becoming president, just as Obama did before him.

Bilderberg has proven its kingmaker role time and time again not just in US politics but worldwide. Bill Clinton was a little-known Governor of Arkansas before he attended a Bilderberg meeting in 1991 and went on to become President a year later. Similarly, British Prime Minister Tony Blair attended Bilderberg before his election in 1997. According to Euro Weekly News, Maria Dolores De Cospedal’s attendance at Bilderberg 2011 in St. Moritz Switzerland also “augurs a victory in Spain’s next general election” for her Partido Popular party.

Obama himself was reportedly vetted by Bilderberg when he infamously disappeared to a secret location with Hillary Clinton in June 2008 in Northern Virginia, at precisely the same time and location the Bilderberg Group were convening in Chantilly. Bilderberg luminary James A. Johnson was also responsible for selecting Obama’s running mate Joe Biden, having also previously selected John Edwards as John Kerry’s right hand man in 2004 after Edwards had impressed Bilderberg elitists Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller with a speech he gave at the globalist confab in Italy that year.

In a comparatively weak GOP field, the establishment cannot take any chances in allowing Ron Paul to gain momentum as the only candidate who has a real chance of defeating Barack Obama.

As polls have shown, out of the Republican candidates, only Ron Paul has a realistic hope of success in a hypothetical run off against Obama – the other candidates are equally unpopular as the President.

Despite the fact that Mitt Romney has been anointed by the establishment as the Republican favorite, a May CNN poll found that he would lose by 11 points if he got the nomination and went head to head with Obama, whereas Paul only trails the President by 7 points.

Bilderberg’s continual influence in picking US presidents and potential vice-presidents again serves up a reminder that the real power structure steering the planet goes beyond teleprompter-reading puppet presidents and rests in the hands of multi-generational globalists, central banking moguls and the CEO’s of the world’s biggest corporations, all of whom routinely attend the Bilderberg Group confab every year.

Watch the clips below in which Rick Perry’s connection to the NAFTA Superhighway and the North American Union is documented, as well as Alex Jones’ protest of Perry’s globalist agenda.
