Ed Driscoll's blog on PJ Media gave us an outline I've saved for future rereads (translation: laughs). Last night, from a Queens pizzeria, Anthony Weiner conceded defeat in the race for New York City mayor. It's sad that he was even allowed to run again in the first place. He obviously cared more about his sordid personal life than he ever cared about his position in public service.
Let this be a (humorous) lesson to us. Anthony Weiner: a track record so bad, even New York voters couldn't ignore it.
There is a lot of chatter about the root cause of the loss of Anthony Weiner's former congressional district to Republican Bob Turner. Some are saying that it is a referendum against the Obama administration and its catastrophic economic policies. Some are saying it is a pro-Israel vote, which is ironic since New York Congressional district 9 is heavily populated with Jewish voters, Orthodox, Reform, and what-you-will. However, Turner came out with a strong "I Stand With Israel" message, which may have appealed to the sentiments of NY9 Jews, as opposed to the traditional Democrat Palestinian sympathizer position. I think these are factors that contributed to the Turner win, but I also believe that voters, when faced with a moral conundrum which pits degenerate behavior against the more virtuous candidate, will gravitate to Republicans and Conservatives. The Right is the only side of the political tug-o-war that believes morals matter, and which is unafraid to tackle social issues which impact families, children, and religion, in policy discussions. It may well be that Weiner's disgusting behavior; the full frontal nudity tweets and online sex chats with numerous women, even after he was married, is so repugnant that even a distract that has unfailingly gone to Democrats since 1923, cannot stomach the thought, nor take the chance, that another sexual pervert might represent them.
New York Congressman, Republican Chris Lee, resigned almost immediately after he sent a photo of himself, waist up and shirtless, to a woman. He did not lie about his culpability, he took responsibility for his tacky and untoward behavior, and he got out of Dodge. Weiner first denied that the tweets were his, then he blamed them on a hacker, then he tried to minimize the offense, then he fought to hold on to his congressional seat after having been fully exposed as an immoral, narcissistic, troubled liar. Perhaps the voters in NY9 have had it with the Weiners of the world. Bob Turner at 70 is certainly a safe bet, at least when it comes to decency.
Character does matter. America made the mistake with Bill Clinton of overlooking moral principle in exchange for a bit of economic security and prosperity. But the social decline of moral standards and behavior has never shifted from its downward trend since the Clinton/Lewinsky years. We can't afford sexual reprobates in positions of political leadership. One's sexual behavior and connection to a religious, moral identity in regard to the purpose and potential of sexuality, transfers to the overall character and conduct of an individual. Democrats in NY9, and perhaps elsewhere, are now feeling the sting of rebuke from an American electorate who still, to some degree, values the indispensable role of morality in a free society.
Ok by now, we’ve all heard about it. Weinergate. Representative Anthony Weiner started with denials, followed by hedging, and finally followed by admission. All of this seasoned with Weiner’s shocked response to the question regarding whether he was going to resign – “No, I’m not going to resign.” The guy who has been married less than a year who had phone sex, exchanged sexting messages, and sent pornographic photos to no less than six women over Facebook and Twitter doesn’t have the class or common sense to know when to resign. Duh…
However, why does this whole drama around Anthony Weiner’s behavior really matter to the country at large? For one, he was engaged in having phone sex, sexting, and sending pornographic pictures utilizing the assets of the US Congress. This will be at least one reason why Weiner will be investigated by the House Ethics Committee.
Second, employers have a right to establish standards of conduct for employees, especially for behavior during work hours. It is common for senior level employees to have morality and behavioral clauses that apply to their employment. Often the clauses are not only intended to prevent legal claims against the company but more importantly to prevent the employee from damaging the reputation of the company. Clearly all of these conditions apply to Weiner. All congress people work for the citizens of the United States so congressmen are employees. There is no doubt that this type of behavior damages the reputation of Congress and the US Government at large. Finally, it has become obvious that Representative Weiner was sexting, having phone sex and distributing pornographic material during “normal” work hours. Any employee I can think of that worked for a company in the United States would be terminated for Weiner’s behavior. They would be gone immediately. Continue...
Sarah Palin issued a strong warning to the USA and the world with a witty reference to Paul Revere’s ride warning that the British were coming.
Here is what both said: We are not surrendering, we have not even begun to fight! You may press on with your invasion but you will never subdue us. We are fiercely independent and armed. We will fight to the last man! American people wakeup and prepare for war all else has failed.
Today, a paradigm shift in America and the world has occurred because of our lack of leadership. This “change” reflects a huge tectonic shift in political money and global power. We are now called “the largest Islamic Nation in the world”. Confidence in the strength of the U.S.A. has reached a tipping point in the world. “Emerging is a new reality that the importance of a newly freed and now consequential Arab (and Islamic) public opinion may be applied to the U.S. as it does to Israel.” This is the view fabricated by mass media purchased to provide "news" and commentary to the world.
In truth, Radical Islam has embraced western society taking full advantage of our freedoms while at the same time planning for our downfall. Infiltration into our open democratic process has provided easy access to sensitive information and a quick base of support. The highest offices in our country have been purchased by enemies of America with a mountain of cash, billions of dollars, flowing into the American political process from oil-rich Muslim nations and powerful people seeking globalization of world politics.
The forces of Islamic globalization have turned our system of government against us. “Local” elections are won by money from who knows where buying influence and creating fear in the media. Freedom of speech is no longer practiced as journalists fear for their jobs and their lives at the hands of radical Islamic people. The Muslim Brotherhood is on the march. They have given the green light to fight for control of the Islamic world now that they perceive control has been secured in the USA and all western nations.
Islamophobia is not prejudice against, hatred or fear of Islam or Muslims it is a very real concern that Islam is rapidly taking over our Christian society. I fear for my country when on the advice of the FBI, cartoonists are told to change their identity and go into hiding to protect themselves because a fatwa has been issued by an Islamic cleric calling for any Muslim to kill them over a cartoon.
Islamic Political lackeys from the President on down have been put into place in an attempt to gain control of our nation.
Our financial system has been brought to its knees and remains on the verge of collapse by the rapid and uncontrolled shifting of billions of dollars in sovereign wealth funds. (Our very own OIL dollars) Our enemies are seeking control or total destruction of our capitalistic system and financial networks. When you hear the words “To Big Too Fail”, think just right to manipulate or be manipulated by the people in power making the deals to “save” us. Elected officials are selling themselves to the highest bidder, becoming the willing tools of predatory wealth, soliciting earmarks as a means of providing cover for their untoward actions. The checks and balances between the Congress, the President and the Supreme Court designed to keep the country on track and bring it back from the brink of destruction are not working as a result. Many of the people involved brazenly disregard their oath of office; “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of (President) of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” so help me God! They hide their actions, shun responsibility for their in-action and deny the existence of God.
Our secular government is subject to perversion and abuse. Socialism and communism are being achieved with the purchase of votes from an unsuspecting electorate. Few voters take the time to become informed as to the true character of the individuals running for office. Decisions at the ballot box are most often based on emotion purchased by thirty second sound bites or the promise of “$1000 in every pocket”. Unsuspecting voters have provided almost a billion dollars of campaign money. Much of it stuffed in brown envelopes containing amounts listed “from undisclosed sources”. Those same sources have received benefits which have made far too many people nothing more that prostitutes. Amoral overzealous citizens, clamoring for “free benefits” follow the crowd like a flock of sheep over the cliff to their own destruction, ignorant of the fact that they have now been purchased as slaves.
WE ARE THE REMAINS OF A CHRISTIAN NATION IN AN ISLAMIC WORLD AT WAR! MANY OF OUR LEADERS ARE TRAITORS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR WITH FOREIGN MONEY.
Islamic infiltrators are very close to achieving their objective. So close in fact that they feel confident enough to turn against our best and longest standing allies in the world; Israel and Great Britain. Our President has snubbed his nose in the face of the leaders of both countries and destroyed our relationship with them in everyway possible by executive decision. He has gone into battle at the behest of his Sunni leaders helping them seek control of the Islamic world. His Islamic emissary has traveled, at the expense of the America taxpayer, to the Middle East and around the USA supporting the Islamic desire for new mosques around our nation. This same emissary clearly states that “many aspects of shari’a are already practiced in many ways in the United States.” Islam has gained the upper hand in its fight with the “great Satan”, and is fast becoming the dominate religion in the USA.
Muslims are now fighting for control of the Islamic world! Why are we helping them fight each other? Who in the Islamic world is supporting America, demanding freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the right to own property in the Arab world?
What are we fighting for? Who are we fighting for? Have we forgotten what it means to be a Christian Nation? Through Love, God sent His son and all of those brave and unwavering Patriots that fought and died before us so that we might have the Freedom to worship as we desire, and to raise our families in Prosperity and Liberty.
God is faithful to keep His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those that love Him and keep His commandments.
How long can we survive as a Humanistic Atheist nation in search of our own glory? September 11, and all of the terrorist problems since represent neither a superior military capability on the part of the terrorists when assaulting the American homeland, nor immunity to its staunchest defenses. Rather it is through the reject of God that we have grown weak, and over time became vulnerable because of our internal divisions. It is not the strength of the Islamists, but the frailties within the fabric of the nation, that must be recognized as its primary vulnerability to attack. The same Islamic enemies of the American ideal have existed since its founding. But not until the current age could they operate openly within our borders as they have in their efforts to destroy the nation while demanding sympathy and equal rights. The problem is the lack of Christian morals and teaching our children about the Jedeuo-Christian foundation of our country and our laws. This rejection of Jesus Christ and all Christian values has resulted in systemic failure of our society and our government of the people, by the people and for the people. Our congress is so corrupt that it provides cover for its own members offering for prostitution, “weiner-gate ”. It seems that we have forgotten that we are "One Nation Under God".
As One Nation Under God, “We the people” of the United States of America must define who we are as a nation and set a true course for the future in order to prevent the total destruction of our way of life. It starts with Congress, clean up "our" house or “We the People” will throw you bums out!
Patrick Henry said it best in the year 1776 when he wrote this: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here."
The conflagration of the ensuing conflict and this election are in the hands of Almighty God! May God Find a Blessing in America! To God, be the Glory!
“I know not what course others may take; but as for me (I stand with Patrick Henry), give me liberty or give me death!”
Listen as Paul Revere and the Raiders sing "Indian Reservation" a song about what happens when people surrender and are subdued by a creeping invasion of a once unknown people.
Think Christian every time you hear Indian.
My name is Joe Story and I think it is time for “We the People” of America to stand as one “TAKE ACTION”, and declare that we are a Christian Nation.
When you pay more than $48 million in bribes to control the content of thirty-six (we only knew about thirty of them last week) of the biggest progressive/ liberal** media outlets in the United States, you’ve got a right to some reasonable return on your propaganda dollar. Unfortunately for multi-billionaire currency manipulator (“The man who broke the Bank of England,” etc.) George Soros . . . it seemed that truth, embarrassing truth kept getting in his way. World Citizen Mr. Soros, who is heavily invested in bringing down the American Dollar and replacing it as the World's Reserve Currency with the Chinese Yuan, spent over $27 Million in 2004 to prevent the re-election of George W. Bush and has been spending more of his fortune every year backing American progressivism and candidates like Barack Obama . . . must be writhing in agony about now.
ITEM: Soros unleashed his attack dogs on the internet and in the press and TV upon Andrew Breitbart of the website biggovernment.com. Mr. Breitbart, they virtually unanimously agreed, was the dirty conservative nut-case who had “hacked” NY Congressman Anthony Weiner’s computer and sent embarrassing lewd pictures to young women. OOOOPS! Mr. Weiner just admitted his sick habits in public today and even apologized to Breitbart who’d been taking a shellacking from the progressive media for over a week. The only question left in the story, did Mr. Weiner ‘fess up to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Breitbart has held back the picture of the erect and naked Anthony himself which Breitbart received from Weiner’s female online victims even when protecting himself from the media’s hacking accusations) in the next few days now that the story of Weiner’s disgrace is being spread and the media is no longer protecting him, expect some more Weiner surprises, he did not employ the body language of a man revealing all . . . when asked if he could say that it was untrue that Andrew Breitbart had been sent an X-rated photo of himself, Weiner said he could not.
While the leftwing media made much ado about Weiner’s contrition, the fact is that he lied for over a week; helped sic the media dogs onto Breitbart; and only came to the confessional when Breitbart released four obscene pictures sent him by female victims of Weiner and said that the X-rated Weiner photo was also in his possession. It appeared that all of Weiner’s “contacts” in the matter were not victims.
Latest TV reports say there is evidence that Weiner tried to get a porn star named Ginger Lee (not sure of the surname’s spelling) to lie and help him cover up that the two of them exchanged “scores of” sexually explicit communications. Weiner denied these allegations. You’ll remember, of course, that the “Journo-list.com” scandal which revealed that leftwing journalists had since before the Monica Lewinsky scandal been explicitly linked together online, comparing notes and co-coordinating strategies to benefit the Democratic Party and attack conservatives was broken by Tucker Carlson of DailyCaller.com and that DailyCaller and Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com were instrumental in getting that story out to the public while the mainstream lamestream media ignored the revelation.
It is now virtually 100% conclusive that the new “UNofficial Journo-list” leftwing support organization works this way: George Soros and/or the White House put a particular spin on things which is then passed first to MediaMatters (or more rarely to the HuffingtonPost) website and then the agreed upon talking points will come out of the mouths of MSNBC reporters and from there they’ll be spread to other liberal media with virtually not a word changed from the White House’s or Soros’ preferred phraseology.
ITEM: Sarah Palin while making a bus tour of America visited the Paul Revere Home in Boston. While inside she learns an awful lot about Paul Revere that didn’t make it into Longfellow’s poem (“Listen, my children, and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five; Hardly a man is now alive, Who remembers that famous day and year”). Some “gotcha journalists” asked her a question about Revere and she told them about how Revere warned the British not to go ahead with their plan to move against the colonials . . . immediately the story was everywhere in the liberal press “That IDIOT Palin thinks that Paul Revere was warning the British!” Of course the idiot press didn’t know anything about Paul Revere and how he was arrested by the Redcoats on his way back home . . . and frankly told them they were too late, that the countryside was aroused against them and that they had little hope of success. Mr. Revere was, after all, an Englishman hoping against hope to reconcile the colonies with the British Parliament against tyrannical King George.
So now the progressive press is trying to spin the story that Palin was confused and told a confusing story; no, sorry, she got it right; and you gutless ninnies are too corrupt to admit that you’ve been know-it-all fools, challenging someone on the facts they just learned while inside a “Paul Revere Museum.”
You know the rest. In the books you have read How the British Regulars fired and fled,--- How the farmers gave them ball for ball, From behind each fence and farmyard wall, Chasing the redcoats down the lane, Then crossing the fields to emerge again Under the trees at the turn of the road, And only pausing to fire and load.
Not surprisingly, even the Boston and Massachusetts media were slow to come to Palin’s defense – if anyone ought to know that particular slice of local history, you’d think, surely they would.
ITEM: The progressive media is now running stories of the “atrocities” of the Israeli army firing across the border to kill Syrians “without any provocation.” The pictures and video reports; and the revelations of Syrian protestors, however, tell a different story. 1) To take attention away from the atrocities of long-time Syrian strongman Assad who is now instructing his military routinely these days to just go ahead and fire into the protesting multitudes . . . Mr. Assad is now offering loyal followers of his regime the chance to earn $1,000 by crossing the Israeli border en masse to provoke incidents 2) besides eighteen who lost their lives from landmines; another eight were shot for attacking the Israeli army’s border patrol; and seventy-eight more were wounded.
Note: Rajjpuut is not taking sides in the issue of Assad vs. Syrian protestors. Unfortunately, it appears that the leaders among the protestors are Jihadists who, if they come to power are likely to make Syria into a fundamentalist Islamic state like Iran (the largest exporter of terrorism in the world). The only side to take is TRUTH’s . . . and the American press is covering the story as if Israel is at fault; and the United Nations is also coming from that view point . . . the picture and video journalism, however, reveals what miserable news-gathering is called journalism in the progressive press these days.
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
** Using his fifty-two liberal foundations and most particularly his OSI (Open Society Initiative which aims for no national borders with the America-hating, American-funded U.N. running everything), Soros’ money nominally is going to fund “media watchdogs against bias” such as the Associated Press; Pro Publica; New York Times; the Center for American Progress; Free Press; The Center for Public Interest; the Center for Investigative Reporting; the Washington Post; ABC; CBS; NBC; NPR; The Organization of News Ombudsman; The Center for Public Integrity; Media Matters; PBS; and influential individual reporters, editors and publishers like Christine Amanpour, Len Downie, David Gergen, Jill Abramson, Cynthia Tucker, Kerry Smith, David Boardman, Martin Baron, Alberto Ibarguen, Adrianna Huffington, Phil Bronstein, George Osterkamp, Jill Abramson, John Podesta . . . just to name the most prominent. IT’s ABSOLUTELY NO COINCIDENCE that these people and organizations are all, like Soros himself, flaming-Marxists who never met an extremist-environmentalist, a communist, socialist, ecotage agent; or other leftwing radical they weren’t enamored of; or ever heard of any facet of the U.S. Constitution that they favor except where it can be corrupted or bent to harass patriotic Americans.
