Bush signs jobless benefits extension.
With no end in sight to economic bad news, President George W. Bush on Friday ensured that millions of laid-off workers will keep getting their unemployment checks as the year-end holidays approach. 
Parents trapped in Newark public schools sue to enforce options required under No Child Left Behind. The result? The Third Circuit just ruled that parents have no right or standing to sue to enforce that law. It is up to state officials who ... are likely controlled by teachers unions. Memo to parents: just get out now before it is too late for your kids.
And while that is going on, some of the teachers engage in their own extra-curicular activities: 
Where Did the Reagan Votes Go in 2008? 
Phyllis Schlafly answers this question and says "if Republicans want to win future elections, they will have to field candidates who defend U.S. jobs, parents' rights in public schools and the institution of marriage."
Evil Concealed By Money 
"Evil acts can be given an aura of moral legitimacy by noble-sounding socialistic expressions such as spreading the wealth, income redistribution or caring for the less fortunate. This is why socialism is evil. It employs evil means, coercion or taking the property of one person, to accomplish good ends, helping one's fellow man. Helping one's fellow man in need, by reaching into one's own pockets, is a laudable and praiseworthy goal. Doing the same through coercion and reaching into another's pockets has no redeeming features and is worthy of condemnation."
"In the wake of campaign 2008 there's only one angry mob gripped by "insane rage": left-wing same-sex marriage activists incensed at their defeat in California. Corporate honchos, church leaders and small donors alike are in the same-sex marriage mob's crosshairs, all unfairly demonized as hate-filled bigots by bona fide hate-filled bigots who have abandoned decency in pursuit of 'equal rights.'" 
"The use of adult stem cells has ushered in another major success and, this time, doctors were able to use a patient's own stem cells to give a woman a new windpipe. The successful transplant again shows how adult stem cells are not only more ethical than their embryonic counterparts but more effective. They also underscore the opposition to and lack of a need for incoming president Barack Obama to force taxpayers to fund the use of embryonic stem cells that involve the destruction of human life as he has promised to do." 
"For years the "pro-choice" mantra has gone something like this: abortion should be between a woman and her doctor, we can't tell women what to do with their bodies, women have a right to choose, etc. Yet, a recent forced abortion incident in China proves so-called "pro-choice" advocates are nothing more than pro-abortion." 
"Democrats use government power to protect only liberal speech under the guise of promoting 'fairness.' The Obama campaign's use of prosecutors to intimidate political opponents, e-mail action lists to shut down telephone lines at radio stations, and the use of the "race card in reverse" to silence opponents, does not bode well." 
Iraq War: Right Time, Right Place, Right War 
"... Iraq has a chance to create a pluralistic society that does not oppress its people, that offers hope for the future and that opposes terrorism; and in becoming this kind of state offers a model to the rest of the Arab world."
"Change"? Obama continues to hire Washington insiders and retreads for key positions. The latest is Tom Daschle, the liberal Senate Majority Leader until voters kicked him out of office. He'll be taking a Cabinet position to run HHS.
"The 'progressives' are noticing, too, that far from bringing a 'new' wave of politics to Washington, so far Obama is bringing back the age of Clinton. Instead of Washington becoming Obamopolis, it is a re-birthed Clintonville that is rising like a phoenix from the ashes." 
Gay Rights, Gay Rage 
"The antinomian rage of the activists -- who reportedly defaced houses of worship and mailed mysterious white powders to a religious fraternity -- is an inevitable result of America's attempt to substitute "rights talk" for faith in the Creator."
"The U.N. Human Rights Council, frequently accused of coddling some of the world's most repressive governments, threw itself a party in Geneva Tuesday that featured the unveiling of a $23 million mural paid for in part with foreign aid funds." 
How the Academic left Elected Obama 
"These youth live and learn on college campuses where "diversity" and "tolerance" and "multiculturalism" -- bogus buzzwords that apply only to ethnic, gender, and sexual diversity, not genuine diversity of ideas -- reign supreme."
In a move that's raising eyebrows, President-elect Obama has picked Gregory Craig as White House counsel; his resume includes defending the killer of an American soldier and the man who tried to kill Ronald Reagan: 
Some homosexuals have picked violence as their answer to the passage of Prop 8: 
Radical Homosexuals Trample a Cross, Harass a Granny, Crash a Church, and Threaten Joe the Plumber’s Life
"It seems as of late, however, that gays can do the above junk to Christian's and get a pass from certain cops and the mainstream media. Do you really believe that this kind of belligerent behavior is going to make Americans capitulate to your cause?"
Another example of liberal hate: 
And an aide to Senator Barbara Boxer, charged with distributing child porn ; maybe the spin on that one will involve "research" like the charges that led to a conviction against a certain former Boxer aide and San Fransisco liberal radio talk show host: 
President-elect Obama has chosen the Secret Service code name 'Renegade'. And what precisely does renegade mean? It comes from the Spanish word renegado, meaning one who has renounced Christianity and converted to Islam. 
Fox News says Governor Palin "didn't understand that Africa was a continent, rather than ... a country." (Huffington Post) Of course they didn't give a quote, let alone show video to back this claim up.
President Bush, attempting to boost major economies ahead of a global financial summit this weekend, offered a vigorous defense of Western capitalism Thursday while deflecting blame from the United States for the current crisis. 
A Chicago teen decided to conduct a simple experiment in tolerance, and discovered just how tolerant her liberal "friends" really are: 
A top psychiatrist has concluded that liberalism is a mental disorder: 
The backlash against California's Proposition 8 continues, as the national media ignore an attack on a Lansing, Michigan church , while ex-governor Jerry Brown does his part to ensure that the will of the voting public is to be tossed in the trash can: 
A "call" for the killing of Joe the Plumber got this liberal radio talk show host a pink slip: 
Obama thinks he's going to "rule" over America! His top aide declared, "it's important that president elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one." Hopefully Obama will read about his limited powers in the Constitution before he tries to "rule".
Homosexual bigots picket churches and vow retaliation after losing the marriage vote in California. Thanks for demonstrating how the homosexual agenda threatens basic freedoms, like free speech and voting.
A Mormon magazine website was hacked into, and was vandalized with a homosexual pornographic film. Church members receive hate mail, their houses and cars have been vandalized, their campaign support signs stolen, and opposition signs planted in their place. 
"Congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist dictatorship. ... You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I'm not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I'm saying is there is the potential of going down that road."
"Liberalism's new and impressive Shadow Party network of organizations -- especially fund-raising, grassroots mobilization, and communications -- has left in the dust anything conservatives have ever put together. Organizations like America Votes and ACORN are so closely tied to Democrat politics that they might as well be arms of the party apparatus. The George Soros-funded organizations run by former Clinton administration officials and liberal leaders -- the Center for American Progress, the Thunder Road Group, MoveOn.org, Media Matters, etc. -- has created a second left-leaning party free from restrictions imposed by official regulations -- including McCain-Feingold." 
Three strikes and you're out: the homosexual agenda loses big in Florida, Arizona and California, as traditional marriage amendments carried in all three states. The homosexual agenda lost in Arkansas too. But they poured millions into Obama's campaign, thinking he would somehow give them "change". It was probably other Obama voters seeking their "change" who put the California initiative over the top.
Conservative Michele Bachmann crushes an intense liberal campaign to defeat her, despite predictions she would be punished for daring to criticize the homosexual agenda and even Obama himself. How do you know Bachmann won? The media are so quiet about it! One hard-to-find story is here.
One thing that is certain about drunks: they always speak that which they would normally think when they're sober, and this includes Obama-supporting journalists who really need to avoid those YouTube cameras: 
Michael Crichton, M.D., author of Jurassic Park and the The Andromeda Strain, passed away this week. He observed, "There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period."
Separate classes in a New Jersey public school result in "an increase in 'healthy' competition between the boys and girls." The liberal ACLU has sued to stop a similar program in Kentucky, which would deprive students of this benefit.
No surprise, I: Barack Obama picks top Bill Clinton aides to run his own administration, including picking Clinton's top aide and longtime Washington insider to be Obama's chief of staff. That's "change"???
No surprise, II: top Democratic former Governor Eliot Spitzer avoids charges for his participation in a prostitution ring, despite others in the ring being sent to jail. Mr. Spitzer accepted responsibility only because the New York Times exposed his involvement in a sleazy prostitution ring, and even then took days to resign. 
- And Franken has an anger management problem, as this report and video demonstrates: 
Barack Obama is elected as America's first black President 
A possible silver lining for conservatives: The end of Hillary Clinton's power, and liberals no longer have anyone else to blame for continuing dissatisfaction.
Despite what they say about conservatives, it is the liberal left and their allies in the Democratic Party that are the real perpetrators of hate and bigotry, as indicated here: 
The crimes against Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson's family highlight Obama's record against law and order, as he voted against making it a crime in Illinois "for convicts on probation or on bail to have contact with a street gang". The person of interest in the murders of Hudson's mother, brother, and 7-year-old nephew is the estranged husband of Hudson's sister and a convicted felon who had violated his parole conditions.  "More people have been murdered in Chicago this year than in New York - even though New York's population is three times greater. When Hudson's mother, brother and nephew were killed last month, they pushed the city's homicide total for the year to 436 and counting. New York has had 430 homicides. ... 'We've got 75,000 gang members - that's almost six gang members to one police officer.'"
Barack Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle that, under his cap-and-trade plan for reducing greenhouse gasses, "if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted". John McCain favors using a market-based cap-and-trade plan to "allow for the gradual reduction of emissions". 
A study carried out at Baylor University has shown that Americans who do not attend a place of worship are far more likely than churchgoers to have a belief in such things as the Loch Ness Monster, Atlantis, communication with the dead, and astrology. Evangelical Conservative Christians are the least likely to have such irrational beliefs. Comments journalist Tom Flannery: "The truth is that the New Atheists, who worship at the altar of human reason, aren't very good when it comes to reasoning; and their veneration of science all too often hides a preoccupation with pseudoscience. Though they rail against superstition, they are in fact its biggest proponents." 
First, a group of San Francisco first-graders took an unusual field trip to City Hall on Friday Oct 10th, their teacher's same-sex wedding.  Then we learn about Tara Miller, a California kindergarten teacher who asked her students to sign a pledge supporting the gay agenda.  Now more than ever California needs to defend life Parental Notification Initiative (Proposition 4), support the Marriage Protection Act (Proposition 8), and prevent prostitution decriminalization (Proposition K ).
An Iraq war vet puts his video on YouTube, which rockets up the charts. "Dear Mr. Obama...are they (the Iraqis) better off today than they were in 2002? You bet." 
Sarah Palin lampoons the L.A. Times' concealment of a video that shows Barack Obama paying "tribute to" -- in the words of the L.A. Times -- a "Palestinian scholar": "Maybe some politicians would love to have a pet newspaper of their very own. ... In this case, we have a newspaper willing to throw aside even the public's right to know in order to protect a candidate that its own editorial board has endorsed. And if there's a Pulitzer Prize category for excelling in kowtowing, then the L.A. Times, you're winning."
"There was a time when the church was very powerful in the time when the early Christians rejoiced at being deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town, the people in power became disturbed and immediately sought to convict the Christians for being "disturbers of the peace" and outside agitators. But the Christians pressed on in the conviction that they were "a colony of heaven" called to obey God rather than man. Small in number they were big in commitment. They were too God-intoxicated to be "astronomically intimidated." By their effort and example they brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide." Martin Luther King said the above in his "Letter from a Birmingham Jail", but what MLK called "evil", Obama calls "good": 
"Nearly three years after the United Nations launched a highly publicized effort to crack down on fraud and waste, especially in its scandal-torn multi-billion-dollar procurement department, the clean-hands offensive is slowing down. And, its own watchdogs warn, other major areas of the U.N. bureaucracy are suffering from an alarming lack of scrutiny." 
Obama says he's no socialist, but his own memoir (Dreams From My Father) says "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully...The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists." 
Muslims place a "$60-million bounty on a Coptic leader," which the National Journal describes as "just one sign of the threats facing Egypt's Christians."
Is this coming soon to the United States if Barack Obama is elected President?
Big Brother at work: "It's not that I want to punish your success..." said Obama to Joe the Plumber, but it sure seems that he wants to punish Joe for asking that question in the first place: 
A liberal, vote-Obama-necktie-wearing waiter learns the hard way about the socialism Obama preaches...as his rightfully-earned $10.00 tip was taken from him to a homeless guy a short distance away, who promptly gets some booze with it: 
"One of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change."...so said socialist Barack Obama way back in 2001 in an audio just uncovered and posted, as well as dismissed by the likes of CBS: 
Obama's socialism is being defended...sort of: 
Doctors expose the mind control techniques used by Obama, as in one of his speeches when he declared, "a light will shine down from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, 'I have to vote for Barack.'"
"Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he can “guarantee” a win on Nov. 4 in a squeaker victory that won’t be clear until late that night...Things are trending back for McCain. His numbers are rising and Obama's are dropping on a daily basis." 
Never give your gun to a responsible monkey, and never distribute fliers at your college for your next event with tongue-in-cheek jokes about guns; it will get you thrown out of those liberal bastions of free speech, diversity, and tolerance: 
The Obama campaign called the Joe Biden interview "unprofessional and combative", but isn't that what reporters are supposed to do with anyone they interview in public office...or should that kind of hardball be applied to Republicans only? 
Determining the constitutional requirements of any presidential candidate is not a right in the hands of ordinary voters, so says the judge who dismissed the lawsuit filed by a Democrat as to whether or not Obama was actually born in the United States, as the Constitution requires: 
"Over the past fifty years, something on the order of a half-million Americans have been killed by liberal policies." 
"The process is called democide, the murder of a populace by its own government. It can occur through malice, or indifference, or through Incompetence. Almost always, it is instigated by an ideology -- fascism, Nazism, communism... and liberalism."
Why you can't believe everything you see on CNN: 
Paul Ibrahim has written about how ludicrously unbalanced CNN's election coverage has been, and others have examined CNN's blatant misrepresentation of a National Review quote during its Palin interview.  Paul says "CNN isn't merely biased, it is also incompetent."
Joe the Plumber tells America his impression of Obama, and it's a warning: 
Philip J. Berg vs Obama suit dismissed by Philadelphia Federal Court. Berg is appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court. The controversy continues to erupt regarding Obama's citizenship and therefore his eligibility to be president of the United States. A YouTube video on this matter has received over 3,188,000 plus views in a short amount of time.  A major conservative organization which recently has had a very high volume of internet traffic is currently investigating the claims made in the YouTube video.
The overwhelming majority of Cuban Americans expect the next president to abandon today's failed "wait and hope" policy and adopt a policy of support and engagement directed toward opening new avenues of freedom for the Cuban people as well as enhancing stability in the United States. 
20 have died and more suffer from the onset of paralytic symptoms after receiving the HPV Vaccine, yet it is now required of immigrants. Groups that said nothing when Merck tried to impose its vaccine on schoolgirls are expressing outrage now.
Think William Ayers and Weather Underground planned to stop with a couple bombs at the Capitol and the Pentagon? An informant stated this from a 1982 video: "I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people...and they were dead serious."
