President Obama´s proclamation for
´Religious Freedom Day´ recognizes
atheists and agnostics

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/16/2014 2:38:07 PM

"The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, penned by Thomas Jefferson, declared religious liberty a natural right and any attempt to subvert it ‘a departure from the plan of the Holy Author of our religion, who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either.’ The statute inspired religious liberty protections in the First Amendment, which has stood for almost two and a quarter centuries.” “Today, America embraces people of all faiths and of no faith. We are Christians and Jews, Muslims and Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs, atheists and agnostics. Our religious diversity

I can hardly verbalize the complete and utter contempt I have for that disgusting person. Years ago you couldn´t have even imagined the degree of insanity that is now coming from this White House. The results of a psychological study of 0bama would be horrifying.

Maybe, if we ever see the end of this guy´s term of office, he´ll admit he has no god but Allah! His behavior and his "edicts" just about admit he has no tolerance for Christians and Jews.

As far as I´m concerned, atheism IS a religion--it is a religious belief that posits no deity exists. It is no more "provable" than Fundamentalist Christianity ( I would argue it is less so). And the State has no more business fostering it than it does any other religion.

He left out Voodoo and Kwanza - the two most important religions! But he did make it clear that there is nothing special about Christianity.

And recall that he can wish the Muslims a good Ramadan, but can´t bring himself to say Merry Christmas to a country like the US that is 90%+ Christian.

Atheists and agnostics don´t believe in anything that relates to religion so why would Obama want to includes them in his proclamation regarding Religious Freedom Day, other then to think that they might give the liberal Democrats their vote in the next election. Just another instance to show that everything that Obama says and does is political.

Would that the Lord would send people like Harry Ironside into today´s "Religious Freedom" celebrations. He was pastor at Moody Church in Chicago in the early 1900s but called San Francisco his home. On one visit home, the event described below happened. It´s a great story; one of direct confrontation with a self-important, mocking agnostic who challenged Harry to a debate between Christianity and Agnostiscism. You could just about substitute any false religion for Agnosticism and still walk away having made Harry´s point. Read the story and enjoy.

Obama: “I’m Not a Particularly

American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/25/2014 1:53:33 PM     Post Reply
A couple of days ago, I counted the ways why I disliked President Obama following his recent interview with David Remnick of The New Yorker. In the interview, he attributed some of his unpopularity to racism. Dishonesty and disingenuousness are unbecoming a President and here’s another example from the same interview. Remnick follows Obama to a Democratic Party fundraiser at the home of former Microsoft President Jon Shirley near Seattle. He told donors, “I’m not a particularly ideological person.” He also went on to say, “There are reasonable conservatives and there are those who just want to burn down the

Media Not Very Curious

The indictment of a major critic of the president has elicited little more than yawns from the media. This is a case where you don’t even have to connect the dots. Just read a little history: After news broke Thursday that federal prosecutors had charged conservative commentator, author, film-maker and professional Obama-basher Dinesh D’Souza with violating campaign finance laws, Walter Olson at the Overlawyered blog posted on the relatively mild civil sanction meted out to a “big-league trial lawyer” who’d done pretty much the same thing D’Souza is accused of. D’Souza has been indicted for allegedly paying $20,000 to reimburse

Obama Shifts from ´Income Inequality´
to ´Ladders of Opportunity´
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/25/2014 1:22:07 PM     Post Reply
President Obama has already changed his vernacular concerning his second term focus of "income inequality." He is now calling it "ladders of opportunity." In an apparent effort to blunt criticism over his intent to engage in full-blown class warfare during his second term, Obama is softening the harsher term with a new label. The Associated Press reports that Obama has shifted his rhetoric from "complaining" about income inequality toward language that creates an appearance that he is offering support for the middle class. Since his December 4 economic speech where he used the word "inequality" 26 times, the word is

Barack Obama -- our appeaser in chief
Fox News, by Danielle Pletka    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 1/25/2014 1:02:09 PM     Post Reply
As bloodshed and nuclear menace mount in the Middle East, China and North Korea flex their military and nuclear muscles in Asia, and America retreats almost everywhere, how will history judge Barack Obama? Is he the wise Dwight D. Eisenhower who understood the limits of American power and used military might as an instrument of peace? Or the appeaser Neville Chamberlain, whose naivete accelerated Hitler’s rise and led to World War II? Neither analogy rings true. But there are others whose choices more closely mirror Obama -- and they do not inspire optimism about where we are going. Winston Churchill was said to

Eric Cantor Mingling with Global
Elite on Taxpayer-Funded Trip

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is on a taxpayer-funded trip to Davos to attend the World Economic Forum, where the global superclass regularly meets to discuss multinational issues that are important to them--like immigration reform. Cantor told the Huffington Post on Friday that his trip to Davos, described as a "veritable Disneyland of ostentatious cocktail parties underwritten by global banks, technology companies and other well-heeled concerns," was an "official trip." He is reportedly leading a congressional delegation there. Back at home, Cantor has in the past spoken at the Aspen Ideas Festival, which similarly gathers the "Party of Davos"-minded "intellectuals" about

Judicial Watch’s Corruption Chronicles blogger Irene Garcia, formerly with the Los Angeles Times, recently wrote on the latest Benghazi developments: It’s no coincidence that, days after prominent conservatives--including Judicial Watch--and family members of Benghazi victims demanded action and accountability, House leaders released classified files documenting the Obama administration’s lies and cover-up involving the terrorist attack… Last week, JW joined forces with surviving Benghazi family members, U.S. military leaders, and other top conservatives to call House Speaker John Boehner on the sad job he’s doing investigating the tragedy. In a scathing letter, JW and the other signatories blasted the Republican leader

An Allen West comeback?

Allen West may have lost his seat in Congress, but the Florida Republican is not done with elected politics. West told radio host Jesse Lee Peterson Thursday that another Allen West candidacy would likely be coming in 2016. “I will definitely come back,” said West, who lost his seat in 2012 to now-Congressman Patrick Murphy by fewer than 3,000 votes. This year, for the midterm elections, West said, he was going to work to help other people get elected, specifically: “more military, minority conservatives.” “In the 2016 cycle, we’ll look to getting back in and running myself,” he said in

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio weighed in on the hydraulic fracturing debate in his state during a press conference Thursday in Washington, D.C. “The one thing I’m firm about is I don’t see any place for fracking,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors when CNSNews.com asked what his policy would be “as far as developing oil, natural gas and other traditional energy sources in the state.” “The science simply isn’t reliable enough; the technology isn’t reliable enough, and there’s too much danger to our water supply, to our environment in general,” de Blasio said. “So, my view

American intelligence and security agencies are not currently capable of detecting when foreign nations are building nuclear weapons or ramping up their existing programs, according to a newly released Pentagon report that faults a range of U.S. agencies. “The nation is not yet organized or fully equipped” to detect clandestine nuclear activities across the globe, and in most cases “current solutions are either inadequate, or more often, do not exist,” according to the report, which was compiled over three years by the Pentagon’s Defense Science Board. More nations than ever are pursuing nuclear arms. However, the United States does not have the

Last week, conservative Bloomberg columnist Megan McArdle and American Enterprise Institute fellow Scott Gottlieb debated New York magazine’s liberal columnist Jonathan Chait and former Assistant Surgeon General Douglas Kamerow over the proposition that Obamacare is “beyond rescue.” If you have an hour and a half of free time and a nearby brick wall to repeatedly smash your head into, you can watch the whole debate here. In the event that you’re unfamiliar with Salon dot com, suffice to say, I stand with Chait and Kamerow. I didn’t write about this earlier because, even though McArdle and Gottleib won the debate

Republican and business advocates for immigration reform said Friday they were encouraged by signs that the House GOP plans to take up the issue after months of delay. But Gov. Rick Snyder (R-Mich.) and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) warned the party not to get bogged down by details or scared off by criticism from a minority of conservative opponents. “If you are against the fastest-growing voting bloc in the country, you and your party don’t have a future,” said Bloomberg, who quit the GOP in 2007.

The Democrats´ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday. Echoing President Obama´s infamous "bitter clingers" remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed. Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to "the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long." In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful

If there is anything New York doesn´t need it´s more reasons for Empire State residents to flee. Over the last decade (2001-11) New York´s population fell by 1.6 million. Many disgruntled New Yorkers said enough, packed up and left the state. This was a larger population drain than suffered by any other state. Congratulations. That´s why Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo´s declaration that "extreme conservatives ... have no place in the state of New York" was so dumbfounding. Is it just me or does it seem like only yesterday that "progressives" like Mr. Cuomo were lecturing us about embracing "diversity"? As they say in

Politics: The Obama administration has turned the executive branch loose on its enemies — part of a disturbing and unprecedented trend toward delegitimizing political differences and marginalizing conservatives. Behind the special status of his presidency, President Obama has used the machinery of government to harass and intimidate political opponents — to an extent greater even than former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both threatened with impeachment. Consider these recent events, courtesy of the Ace of Spades blog: • Attorney General Eric Holder´s Southern District of New York office has indicted conservative author, activist and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza — producer of the critical

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday. Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks. “I would not take that back,” he replied. As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room.

Want to know why Wendy Davis will have trouble winning higher office in Texas or anywhere else in America? It’s not because she stretched the truth in her “from mobile-home-living single mom to Harvard Law grad” campaign biography, nor because her husband paid for her education, nor even because she placed a lot of value on her career. Nope: It’s because Davis, the Lone Star State senator who became famous for her filibuster of an abortion-limiting bill in Texas, lost custody of her children to her ex-husband.
