Chicago Style Politics

Once again Sen. Obama's campaign and the DNC is viciously attacking because they don't like the truth coming out. The NRA has put together a thorough series of ads to get out Obama's true beliefs on the Second Amendment and instead of admitting his socialist, liberal beliefs Obama's campaign and the DNC is threatening court action.

Campaign and DNC Launch Assault On First Amendment!


Earlier this week, NRA-PVF released a series of radio and television spots to educate gun owners and sportsmen about Barack Obama's longstanding anti-gun record. In response to the NRA-PVF ads, a clearly panicked Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are doing everything they can to hide Obama's real record by mounting a coordinated assault on the First Amendment.

They have gone to desperate and outrageous lengths to try to silence your NRA by bullying media outlets with threats of lawsuits if they run NRA-PVF's ads. They have sent intimidating cease and desist letters to cable operators and television stations, threatening their FCC licenses if they run the ads.

Obama and the DNC have been using strong-arm tactics reminiscent of Chicago machine politics to try and cover up the truth and silence NRA by forcing the stations to assist them in hiding Obama's radical anti-gun record. [read more]

McCain Press Release

300 Retired Generals And Admirals Endorse John McCain For President

ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today announced that 300 retired generals and admirals from around the country are endorsing John McCain for president. The retired generals and admirals announced their support with the following letter:

"We have had the honor and privilege of serving as career officers in the United States Armed Forces, and of serving shoulder to shoulder with so many of the fine young men and women who are the backbone of America's Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. It is that experience that informs our judgment that John McCain is the presidential candidate best suited to serve as America's Commander-in Chief from the day of his inauguration.

"Our next president will confront national security challenges as significant as those faced by any administration in at least a generation. Success will require a leader with proven tenacity, judgment and courage. It will also require a leader with detailed knowledge of our military and other instruments of national power, and with years of experience dealing seriously with foreign leaders.

"John McCain's entire life has been devoted to the service of America. Throughout a long and distinguished career in the military and in Congress, he has repeatedly displayed the courage and integrity to place America's interests first -- regardless of personal cost. And he has demonstrated the experience and wisdom to lead America -- and, importantly, our allies -- in effectively dealing with complex and vitally important national security challenges around the world.

"We unequivocally endorse him to continue his service to the country as the next President of the United States."

Statement By McCain Campaign On Negotiations


ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today released the following statement on negotiations:

"John McCain's decision to suspend his campaign was made in the hopes that politics could be set aside to address our economic crisis.

"In response, Americans saw a familiar spectacle in Washington. At a moment of crisis that threatened the economic security of American families, Washington played the blame game rather than work together to find a solution that would avert a collapse of financial markets without squandering hundreds of billions of taxpayers' money to bailout bankers and brokers who bet their fortunes on unsafe lending practices.

"Both parties in both houses of Congress and the administration needed to come together to find a solution that would deserve the trust of the American people. And while there were attempts to do that, much of yesterday was spent fighting over who would get the credit for a deal and who would get the blame for failure. There was no deal or offer yesterday that had a majority of support in Congress. There was no deal yesterday that included adequate protections for the taxpayers. It is not enough to cut deals behind closed doors and then try to force it on the rest of Congress -- especially when it amounts to thousands of dollars for every American family.

"The difference between Barack Obama and John McCain was apparent during the White House meeting yesterday where Barack Obama's priority was political posturing in his opening monologue defending the package as it stands. John McCain listened to all sides so he could help focus the debate on finding a bipartisan resolution that is in the interest of taxpayers and homeowners. The Democratic interests stood together in opposition to an agreement that would accommodate additional taxpayer protections.

"Senator McCain has spent the morning talking to members of the Administration, members of the Senate, and members of the House. He is optimistic that there has been significant progress toward a bipartisan agreement now that there is a framework for all parties to be represented in negotiations, including Representative Blunt as a designated negotiator for House Republicans. The McCain campaign is resuming all activities and the Senator will travel to the debate this afternoon. Following the debate, he will return to Washington to ensure that all voices and interests are represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners."

McCain Press Release

Statement On Washington Mutual


ARLINGTON, VA -- U.S. Senator John McCain today issued the following statement on Washington Mutual:

"Today's financial crisis threatens all Americans and the sale of Washington Mutual is just the latest indicator of the stresses in our financial markets that threaten to cut off the credit needed by our families, businesses, and state and local governments. I am committed to working with all parties of good faith in both houses of Congress, the Administration, and among Democrats and Republicans to reach an agreement to stabilize our financial markets. We can do so in a timely and effective fashion while protecting the taxpayer from excessive demands on their strained checkbooks. It is our obligation to restore the confidence of Americans in these valuable institutions, and demonstrate to taxpayers that Washington will be capable of addressing great national problems."

McCain won't push Israeli-Palestinian peace deal

Headline News
Wednesday, September 24, 2008 Israel Today Staff


McCain won't push Israeli-Palestinian peace deal

If he wins the upcoming US presidential election John McCain will take a very different approach to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process than his fellow Republican, President George W. Bush.

Parallel to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Bush has made it one of his overriding missions to oversee a final status peace deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

With only a few months left in office and a transition government currently ruling in Jerusalem, the chances of Bush achieving his goal is slim to nil.

And if McCain wins in November, the Bush vision of a Palestinian Arab state rising on the biblical Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria may be postponed indefinitely.

Israel National News cited two senior McCain advisors as telling a recent foreign policy retreat that pushing through an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal simply won't be a top priority for a McCain administration.

In fact, the advisors said they and their candidate feel it was a mistake for Bush to have so strongly promoted a peace process that with its current players and demands is doomed to failure.

They also said that as president, McCain would discourage, but not prevent, peace talks between Israel and Syria until the latter ceases to be a disruptive force in Lebanon's democratic process.

Founding Fathers Quote

That each party endeavors to get into the administration of the government and exclude the other from power is true, and may be stated as a motive of action: but this is only secondary; the primary motive being a real and radical difference of political principle. I sincerely wish our differences were but personally who should govern, and that the principles of our Constitution were those of both parties. Unfortunately, it is otherwise; and the question of preference between monarchy and republicanism, which has so long divided mankind elsewhere, threatens a permanent division here.

Illegal Immigration Updates

After Arizona's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants they are noticing a drop in crime. Texas, who has yet to act, is seeing an increase. This is just the latest example of the benefits you see when you stand up for the rule of law and put your citizens first.

Since our politicians don't want to mention it, I thought you might be interested in the role illegals are playing in our mortgage meltdown.

The bottom line is we have to secure our border because that is what is right for our citizens, for the illegals who are being victimized, and for future Americans not even born yet. Our government's irresponsibility has directly lead to this current situation. It is their job to fix the problem now, not later.

Is Our Children's Future Being Given Away?

Just how much of our money do you think the government has wasted in the last couple of months? Well, no need to guess; the Senate Conservatives Fund has a post breaking it down for us. Actually, I shouldn't even say our money because they are no doubt borrowing it from enemies of this republic like Communist China.

Bailouts are bankrupting our country

Here’s a rundown of the recent government actions to help the economy, which have not worked and are driving our nation deeper and deeper into debt. Even a conservative estimate of these actions shows that at least $1.4 trillion in new debt has been imposed on American taxpayers.

We’ve also dug quotes from Treasury Secretary Paulson where he predicts these actions will help the economy and protect taxpayers. His predictions have been wildly off the mark and have rightly destroyed his credibility. [read more]

Catholic League News Release

PUNDITS SLAM PALIN ON WITCHCRAFT

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments today on news reports that an African minister once asked God to protect Sarah Palin from witchcraft:

“In 2005, Sarah Palin went to church and found that a visiting minister from Kenya, Bishop Thomas Muthee, was doing the service. He offered a prayer asking Jesus to keep her free from ‘every form of witchcraft.’ Palin said nothing—she simply kept her head bowed throughout the blessing Why this is newsworthy is one issue, but why it has quickly become the subject of scorn is another.

“For the past two decades, Americans have been lectured by educators and the chattering class that we must respect cultural, religious, racial and ethnic diversity. It seems that exceptions to the creed of multiculturalism are only made when it suits the ideological agenda of the left. Enter Keith Olbermann: He exploited this incident last night as a club to paint Palin as an extremist. Moreover, he used this single blessing to unfavorably contrast the African minister to Barack Obama’s spiritual mentor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The MSNBC commentator incredibly said that Wright—who spewed hate speech before Obama for 20 years—‘seems pretty mainstream’ by comparison.

“Witchcraft is a sad reality in many parts of Africa, resulting in scores of deaths in Kenya over the past two decades. Bishop Muthee’s blessing, then, was simply a reflection of his cultural understanding of evil. While others are not obliged to accept his interpretation, all can be expected to respect it. More than that—Muthee should be hailed for asking God to shield Palin from harmful forces, however they may be manifested. And for this he is mocked and Palin ridiculed?

“We know that many cultural elites have a hard time embracing religion, but is it too much to ask that they at least show some manners when discussing subjects which most Americans hold dear?”

Absolutely Terrifying

An active duty Army Brigade will now be permanently operating in the United States. I don't care what excuse they use, natural disaster or crowd control, this is dangerous and something that must be watched very closely. While I have no doubt that good intentions are behind this, many disastrous events have occurred because of good intentions.

Catholic League News Release

On Thursday, September 25, 2008 at 6:45 am EST, Catholic League President Bill Donohue will appear on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends.”

He will discuss the protest rally against Iranian president Ahmadinejad, who is being honored by several religious groups.

McCain's The Coal Miner Ad

Catholic League News Release

CHRISTIAN APPEASERS WELCOME AHMADINEJAD

On September 25, there will be a press conference and a rally outside the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City at 5:30 p.m. to protest the five Christian organizations that are welcoming Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Those organizations are the World Council of Churches, Religions for Peace, the Americans Friends Service Committee, Mennonite Central Committee and the Quaker United Nations Office; they are hosting a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner (Iftar).

Over 50 organizations have now joined the protest, which is being sponsored by Women International; see
www.925rally.org for more information. Catholic League president Bill Donohue explains why his organization is participating:

“The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has secured evidence from 10 countries demonstrating Iran’s nuclear development activities. Because Iran is not cooperating with IAEA inspectors, the U.N. Security Council has thrice imposed sanctions on Ahmadinejad’s regime. The concerns are obvious: the Iranian president has said that Israel ‘must be wiped off the map.’ Moreover, Iran is now about to formalize its stricture on apostasy: this would mean certain death to any Muslim who converts. But none of this matters to the Christian appeasers who will greet him tomorrow.

“The most prestigious organization welcoming Ahmadinejad is the World Council of Churches (WCC). Its politics are so radical that its agenda could easily be endorsed by any Marxist atheist. It was not for nothing that Jewish interreligious leader Israel Singer once branded the WCC ‘the head office for the dissemination of antisemitic statements.’ Indeed, after Yasser Arafat died, the WCC stated that the Arab terrorist ‘came to the recognition that true justice embraces peace,’ something that many Israeli mothers must have found mind-boggling.

“To appease someone like Ahmadinejad is sickening, but for it to be done in the name of Christianity is enough to induce vomiting. We strongly encourage Catholics and others to attend the rally.”

Obama Not So Welcomed In Wisconsin

The best news I have had the last week is how close Wisconsin is now. Obama has a one to three point lead and the way things are going I really believe Wisconsin will be a red state this November. It has been so embarrassing living in a blue state. No one recognises the millions of people who vote Republican in blue states. Now Obama is going to have to pour in the money and the visits to keep us blue. His visit today, however, must have left him a little down. GretaWire reports that he got about half of the audience than that of McCain and Palin just the other day.

Stepping Right Up!, I think, said it perfect in their post "Welcome Back, Senator Obama"

My wife is from Texas and one of the most frustrating things for both of us is the way most of the leadership ignores illegal immigration. That may be changing now.

Gov. Palin On Iran And Ahmadinejad - UPDATED

It is interesting to see where Gov. Palin stands on this important issue. Since Democrats stopped her from having the ability to give this speech I am glad the American people will still be able to read it. Please take the time to read it, we can't let the Democrats silence us.

Israel is our most important ally, we must stand with her against all threats. Especially, a nuclear armed Iran.

UPDATE:

I just had to comment more on this. This truly is an amazing speech. I keep thinking of how much of a lost opportunity this really is. Because of the Democrats' temper tantrum we have been denied a powerful symbol. I can think of nothing better than Gov. Palin giving Iran both barrels, which this speech clearly does. When you look at the latest intelligence, we don't have much time to stop Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Catholic League News Release

RELIGIOUS GROUPS HOST AHMADINEJAD


On Thursday, September 25, the following religious organizations will host a Ramadan fast-breaking event (Iftar) honoring Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City: Americans Friends Service Committee, Mennonite Central Committee, Quaker United Nations Office, Religions for Peace and the World Council of Churches (United Nations Liaison Office).

To protest this event, a press conference and a rally will be held at 5:30 p.m. that evening outside the Grand Hyatt at 109 E. 42nd Street, near Lexington Avenue. Led by Women International and the Jewish Action Alliance, approximately two dozen organizations, across many faith lines, will stage the protest; the Catholic League will also be represented.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented on the rally today:

“Catholics need to stand with their Jewish brothers and sisters in protesting this obscene event. Ahmadinejad is a menace to freedom-loving people the world over, and the sight of religious groups embracing him is nauseating. The Catholic League is proud to take part in this rally and we encourage people of all religious groups to have a contingent represent them on Thursday evening.”

Founding Fathers Quote

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.
