Denial + Avoidance + Independent Journalism = EXPOSURE

Michelle Malkin » Document drop: The truth about ObamACORN.

“Critics suggested that the donor lists could have been compiled through public records. But I have obtained the lists — not only of Obama donors, but also lists of Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry contributors. The records include small donors to the Obama campaign who are not disclosed in public campaign finance databases. It’s information only a campaign could supply.”

“ACORN receives 40 percent of its revenues from taxpayers. Americans deserve to know whether and how much commingling of public money with political projects has occurred over the last four decades – and what role the Obama campaign played in this enterprise.”

This is BLOWING UP as we speak. Perhaps Obama and Obama supporters are learning the hard way that when you lie to cover up a lie to cover up a lie, you get all mixed up and can’t keep it all straight. Obama made his bed and now he must lay in it with everyone he’s attempted to keep under the covers.

Bravo to independent journalism. Bravo to those who seek the truth no matter the cost.

Pigs are Flying

Home Bible Study in San Diego in Violation of County Code?

The American Flag is Offensive in America?

If you think these stories are rare, they’re not and they’re getting worse.

In the Bible Study story, an average of 15 people meet together weekly to “have a meal, we pray, that was all.” I would understand hundreds or even dozens of cars taking up a whole block of residential parking but this? To put it in perspective, my church’s leadership totaling 16 people meets at a private home on Sunday evenings. This is a total of 10 cars. More than likely, this is probably the same scenario for the San Diego group that has been accused of  unlawfully using the land. Unbelievable.

In the latter story, is relatively cut and dry. Four hospital supervisors share an office – one of them put up an American flag. Apparently, “multiple” people complained about the flag, including one of the other supvisors, a woman who had immigrate from Africa 14 years ago. The woman who put up the flag is obviously proud of her husband and two sons who have previously served this country in the military, as well as her daughter who is currently serving in Iraq on her SECOND tour of duty. What happens when “Support the Troops” bumper stickers and bracelets offend someone? What happens when the 4th of July offends someone? Maybe the Lincoln Memorial will offend some racist from the south and be torn down! Unbelievable.

Open Up Your Eyes!

Michelle Malkin » Why is the Obama Justice Department protecting New Black Panthers?.

Just a reminder to those few who check this blog, I am no journalist, nor do I aspire to be.

My aim is to expose government actions they wish to hide in darkness and to raise awareness of what is really going on in this country and the world.

That being said, I love Michelle Malkin’s blog and I will continue to post her articles and blog posts here. This entry in particular, though it is not “Front Page” material, I believe it should be.

At some point during the history of our country, “Politics” has become ambiguous with “Lying” and “Deniability”.

If the government can keep the press on their side (which its pop-icon, Barack Obama, is accomplishing very well), they may then sneak and slither their way into any form of governement they wish. If the press has been “bought”, citizens are then left unaware of what truly transpires behind closed doors.

If any of youcan’t see the wrong in both the Black Panthers intimidation at the polls AND the Justice Department’s response to their actions, then…well…things are worse than I thought.

In hope that you “OPEN UP YOUR EYES”…I give you the song of the day…

US Policy on Interrogation and International Intimidation

The future of US policy.

(Thanks, Michelle Malkin. This is a great correlation to current events).

While Obama spoke at length last week about his flawless plan in dealing with terrorists in Guantanamo and elsewhere, he still failed to offer a plausible, realistic alternative in dealing with the fanatics. He’s attempting to make US policy, “Killing with Kindness.” (Hence the above video).

Now, North Korea and Iran are pushing every international limit only to be met with Obama’s empty request, “Please don’t do that.” While Obama is not alone in this, it is clear that the eyes of the world are on this charismatic rookie to put his money where his mouth is. It seems Obama will have to look beyond the teleprompter to fight this battle.

North Korea: Multiple Missle Launches

Iran: Warships in International Waters

Iran rejects nuclear proposal AND wants to meet Obama

Our Lady and the President, pt. 2

If you have not read the articles in Part 1, you should, especially the second one by Robert P. George.

So, Obama received a standing ovation at Notre Dame. The below article offers some very compelling arguments as to why this may be.

Perspective: Moral relativism and Obama at Notre Dame (

The clips I saw of his speech confirms Parker’s theory. Obama, as always, speaks in ambiguities and generalities. “How does each of us remain firm in our principles and fight for what we consider right, without…demonizing those with just as strongly held convictions on the other side.” While admonishing patrons of all faiths to find common ground, he fails to acknowledge the absurdity of this foundation. If this were not so, if this were not absurd, there would be a Palestinian state in the Middle East, for example, Jews and Muslims would be friendly neighbors. For Christianity, Jesus is the Gate; He is the only way to the Father. For those outside of the faith to say that this is arrogant or ludicrous to claim to be the only truth is just as laughable.

Imagine having a face to face conversation with Jesus. Imagine that as your conversation carries on, He says to you, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” To which you reply, “Wow, Jesus, that’s kind of arrogant. All religions are true for those who believe them.” Just because Jesus’ statement is absolute, uncompromising, and completely disregards the “validity” of other religions, does not mean it is not so.

In the above article, Parker exposes the moral relativism she has both observed and experienced throughout our nation’s universities. While moral relativists believe there is no universal standard, it seems this county has been, for quite some time, on the verge of indirectly creating one. This standard is called, “Me, Myself, and I.” That is, of course, unless you believe in Jesus. If you’re in this camp, you are probably experiencing the dismissal of your beliefs due to their lack of relevancy in a modern, progressive society.

While Obama encouraged the class of 2009 to have “open hearts and “open minds,” he seems to have excluded himself from this exhortation by maintaining a 100% pro-choice voting record and leaving the Senate as the most liberal Senator in US history. I believe his rhetoric is beginning to fall on deaf ears. The old adage “actions speak louder than words” comes to mind whenever I think change I can believe in.

Our Lady and the President

YouTube – ND Response – Official Video.

This video was produced by Notre Dame students who oppose the invitation extended to President Obama as the commencement speaker at this week’s graduation.  He will also receive an honorary law degree. They oppose Obama’s stance on abortion. In this situation, both sides of the spectrum have been thrust face to face.

Catholics: pro-life

Obama: pro-choice? (This article breaks it down nice and easy. Although the outcome is disturbing).

Supernatural Stimulus: Raising the Dead?

Woman dead since 1967 receives $250 Social Security check

This woman died 42 years ago! Glad to see the government is on top of things. Apparently, the government is on top of 9,999 more checks sent to deceased citizens.


This definitely isn’t helping the overall situation –> HERE.

Monday’s Top Three Headlines

1. California State Senate to vote on “Harvey Milk Day“. Why? You tell me. This quickly follows Hawaii’s creation of “Islam Day”. Why? You tell me.

2. Funding pulled for “abstinence only” education.

“Barack Obama has recommended completely zeroing out Title V abstinence programs to states, as well as abstinence education programs to community-based organizations (CBAE) and replacing them with more than $100 million for contraceptive-based sex-education programs. The massive omnibus bill signed by the president had already reduced funding to abstinence programs by $14 million.”

Don’t forget, this is from the same guy who said:

What can he possibly mean by “values and morals”?!

3. Stimulus choosing the easy route

Witness your tax dollars hard at work…or not. (AP News analysis).
