Newsmax: CNN’s Cafferty Slams Obama for ‘Lie’ on Healthcare Talks

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Is CNN going rogue on President Obama?

cafferty_jack

Reprinted from Newsmax.com:

Commentator Jack Cafferty — who has been outspoken in his praise of Obama in the past — launched a blistering attack on Obama and the Democrats over the closed-door negotiations to reconcile the House and Senate versions of healthcare reform legislation.

“How dare they!” he began on a recent edition of CNN’s “The Situation Room.”

“President Obama and Democratic leaders have decided to bypass a formal House and Senate conference committee in order to reconcile those two healthcare bills. Instead, White House and Democratic leaders will hold informal — that’s another word for secret — negotiations meant to shut Republicans and the public out of the process.

“What a far cry from the election, when candidate Obama pledged to ‘broadcast healthcare negotiations on C-SPAN so the American people can see what the choices are.’

DONATE TO ‘FOOD FOR THE POOR’ HERE

Our team from Florida is in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and reported back. Staffer Chris Frosch reported this morning, January 15, that there is dust, debris and “dead bodies everywhere,” and little or no cell phone service. Tens of thousands of people are camped out in public parks because of the aftershocks. The team is staying at a Haiti staff member’s house. “Last night we all slept in the cars because it was not safe to sleep inside,” Frosch said.

Don Feder on the ‘War on Christmas’ in America

Monday, December 14th, 2009

DonFederExcerpted from, “We Wish You A Merry Multicultural, Inoffensive, Inclusive, Secular Seasonal Holiday,” an exclusive commentary for GrassTopsUSA by Don Feder, Dec., 13, 2009 (link added):

“For most of the 20th century, we had municipal Christmas trees, public displays of crèches and Christmas greetings uttered in shops and stores – and America was better for it.

“I’m a Jew. I don’t celebrate Christmas (though they tell me it commemorates the birthday of a Jewish kid). But I’m not offended by those who do, yea, even publicly. This is a Christian nation. Christianity is the glue that holds America together. As a patriot, I defend the public celebration of Christmas as a public good.

Star Parker Praises The Blind Side Movie but Laments that It Does Not Cover Public Schools’ Failure to Serve Michael Oher

Monday, November 30th, 2009

1 SHEET MASTER_TemplateFolks, I encourage you to see The Blind Side, which I caught over the holiday weekend. It is a very moving film. But Star Parker is right below:  it’s too bad Blind Side ignored the public school system’s utter failure to serve Michael Oher. The incompetence of public educationists on many levels is appalling, yet the schools get “affirmative action” treatment in the media. The best hope for America is that the public school monopoly would be broken wide open through the growth of home schooling and vouchers so that all inner-city parents can give their children an opportunity to attend schools that actually educate and thus give them a chance at success in life. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Parker writes:

‘The Blind Side’ should trouble as well as inspire

Oher’s story is about private individuals, about personal choices and responsibility, and about Christians

The Blind Side” is a beautiful new film based on a magnificent and heartwarming true story.

But I hope that the many who see it do not simply walk out all aglow. It should also produce concern.

This story about hopelessness transformed into achievement should be a typically American story. We should be concerned that, increasingly, this is not the case. That this is the exception that should be the rule.

Michael Oher’s
story has already received much attention. How a homeless black 15-year-old winds up in a Christian private school and how a white Christian couple adopted him and helped him develop to get the grades to stay in school, become a star athlete, an All-American football player and a multimillion-dollar NFL draft pick.

Our wake-up call should be that the factors that saved and transformed Michael Oher’s life stand in stark contrast to the government solutions we hear from Washington about dealing with our problems relating to poverty and education.

David Barton Interview with CWA: Is America a Christian Nation?

Thursday, November 26th, 2009
David_Barton_Wallbuilders

David Barton of Wallbuilders takes apart the liberal straw-man argument on America as a "Christian nation."

David Barton is a national treasure. I wish every student in America — kindergarten through college senior — could hear him speak at least once.  In this informative, 20-minute interview with Martha Kleder of Concerned Women for America, Barton takes apart the liberal straw-man argument on America as a “Christian nation.” Liberals use an ahistorical (extreme) definition of “Christian nation” to “prove” that we are not one. But Barton explains that our republican form of government flows from the biblical beliefs of our mostly Christian Founders — who set up a system that allowed religious pluralism, free market economics, freedom of conscience and other cherished American principles to thrive. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org

Click HERE to listen to the the interview. From the Concerned Women for America website:

Did Our Founding Fathers Give Us a Christian Nations?

Is America a Christian nation? If we once were, are we a Christian nation now? Those questions have been raised often over the years, but most pointedly this year when President Obama told leaders in Turkey that America is a Christian nation no longer. David Barton, President of Wallbuilders and a dear friend of CWA, says the notion that America is not a Christian nation lies in a faulty definition of what it means to be a Christian nation.

If Rush Limbaugh Is a Racist, Why Does He Let Walter Williams Substitute for Him on His Show?

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

walter_williams.jpgrush_limbaugh.jpgThe left-wing media and liberal Thought Police are after Rush Limbaugh with what appear to be fabricated quotations painting him as a racist [see Fox News story HERE]. Do those attacking Rush know that for years, Limbaugh has featured conservative George Mason University economist Walter Williams (right) as a guest-host for his popular radio show? Williams, as you can see, is black.

I suppose the radical Rush-haters might speculate that in allowing an African American to host his show, Limbaugh is merely creating a public cover for his racism. But I think the truth is that Rush is color-blind and instead is serving his huge audience by letting them listen to and learn from one of America’s most popular conservatives, one with a gift for explaining economics to the public.
