The World's Irony Meters Break: President Barack Hussein Obama Praises Islam as 'Great Religion'. The President also said Islam is "part of America," hails the religion's "commitment to justice and progress", and praised American Muslims for enriching the nation's culture at a White House dinner to celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Does President Obama really think "Honor Killings", stoning people and cutting off hands is "progress"? 
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gave an unusually blunt assessment of the impact Sen. Edward Kennedy's death will have on the Obamacare debate: "I think it's going to help us," the Nevada Democrat told the Reno Gazette-Journal. 
"State lawmakers in Democrat-dominated Connecticut raised income taxes ... and borrowed more than $1 billion .... While a minority Republican legislator spoke on the floor late into the night yesterday, what were his Democrat colleagues doing? Playing solitaire on their computers."  Photo proves it.
Chew on this liberals, conservatives are throwing the congressional bums out of office in 2010. A Rasmussen survey shows that 43% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while only 36% would opt for Democrats. Would that have something to do with Obama's policies? 
Massachusetts. Switch saves immigrants’ health care. Thousands of legal immigrants facing steep cuts in state-subsidized health care will keep core medical services such as routine doctor visits and hospital treatment under a plan unveiled yesterday by Governor Deval Patrick. The initiative, which also includes prescription drugs, mental health services, and emergency care, salvages coverage for 31,000 immigrants considered to be especially vulnerable because of their low income and their status as refugees who have lived in the United States less than five years. 
Liberals share two common traits: they are ignorant about the Bible, and they are ignorant about Economics. Fortunately, the second flaw is easily cured: join the world's biggest Economics Class for teenagers. We start Thursday.
Republican "Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire ... is warning that he has lots of objections ready if Democrats try to push a health care bill through the Senate with a simple majority. Democrats might need to resort to the procedural maneuver, known as reconciliation, because with Kennedy's seat vacant, they control 59 votes -- one shy of what is needed to overcome potential filibusters."
"August Ends With Near-Record Cold." In Chicago, "the record low for Aug. 31 is 47 degrees, set in 1872. Overnight Sunday into Monday, the nippy readings were close, and in some areas even lower." Add this to the list of liberal denials, as none will admit we're suffering from global cooling.
"Regardless of what happens with the [Massachusetts] law, the race for Kennedy’s seat will turn into a 'mad scramble,' said Paul Watanabe, political science professor at the University of Massachusetts in Boston."  Ted Kennedy held that seat since 1962, accomplishing virtually nothing in 47 years. His most-cited "achievement" was for No Child Left Behind, when he interfered with President George W. Bush's reform initiative for public schools.
The release of the Lockerbie bomber - who killed 270 people in 1988 - was directed from the highest levels of the leftist-controlled British government. And remember: it's always the liberal left which says that the conservative right does the bad things for oil! 
Disney indoctrinating youths into the Global Warming scam. Disney's biggest stars have come together to promote climate change. Friends For Change wants your kids to pledge that they will help save the planet. So far 350,000 kids have pledged to turn-up the thermostat to reduce CO2 emissions. 
"Now that we have been treated to several days' worth of endless praise from the talking morons of the mainstream media concerning the virtues of Ted Kennedy, it's time to get back to reality. ... Information has been uncovered which shows that Kennedy should have been arrested for treason. ... After the demise of the old Communist Soviet Union, Russian President Boris Yeltsin ordered that all top secret archives from the regime be opened to the public. London Times reporter Tim Sebastian poured through those documents in 1991 and discovered, much to his surprise, a memorandum from the head of the KGB to then-Soviet President Yuri Andropov, dated 1983. ... Kennedy had offered to help the Communist President fight the American President, Ronald Wilson Reagan." 
Barack Obama, displaying the seemingly never-ending liberal fixation on pleasing Russia has abandoned plans to install a missile defense system in Europe, according to a report. If true, this is a major strategic error that will have serious consequences for our allies in Europe, (like Poland and the Czech Republic) and for us. To leftists like Obama, defending America and our allies is "war mongering", capitulating to dictators and leftist regimes is "statesmanship". 
"Liberal icon and former New York governor Mario Cuomo has openly criticized Barack Obama’s prioritizing health care reform over fixing the American economy." However, Mario may merely be positioning his son Andrew for a run against the unpopular Obama-supported incumbent Governor of New York. Liberals care most about the "power" of holding office.
The President of the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank says the real unemployment rate is 16%, not the 9.4% rate put out by the Fed as Obama propaganda. "If one considers the people who would like a job but have stopped looking -- so-called 'discouraged workers' -- and those who are working fewer hours than they want, the unemployment rate would move from the official 9.4 percent to 16 percent", said Atlanta Fed chief Dennis Lockhart. 
"Prayer offered for Kennedy at Capitol" by the chaplain for the House of Representatives: "Lord, You knew his hopes were unquenchable, full of immortality. You knew his strengths and his limitations. He knew You, Lord." A bit odd, isn't it, to have a government-sponsored prayer for a liberal champion of the censorship of classroom prayer? Why isn't the ACLU objecting to this prayer? Because liberals have double standards.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney describes President Obama's criticism and probe of the CIA interrogation techniques "as an 'outrageous political act' that is sure to weaken national security and endanger lives." "Reports indicate that Director of Intelligence Leon Panetta was angry and may ultimately resign over the investigation, which he had vigorously fought against."
The world's largest Economics course for teenagers starts this Thursday. Our in-person enrollment has broken the prior record set in 2007.
Newly Amended By Liberals, An Ominious Senate Bill Would Give President Obama Emergency Control Of The Internet, Allow Him To Block Businesses and Individuals. The new legislation allows the President to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" according to an excerpt published online -- a broad license that rights experts worry would give the president "amorphous powers" over private users. Details of the revamped version of the Cybersecurity Act of 2009 show the bill would give the President a "kill switch" on the Internet and allow him to shut out private networks and individuals from online access. , 
Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer observes, "It is up to God to judge Senator Kennedy's soul. We, as rational persons, must judge his actions, and his actions were not at all in line with one who values and carefully applies Church teaching on weighty matters. Ted Kennedy's positions on a variety of issues have been a grave scandal for decades, and to honor this "catholic" champion of the culture of death with a Catholic funeral is unjust to those who have actually paid the price of fidelity. We now find out that President Obama will eulogize the Senator at his funeral, an indignity which, following on the heels of the Notre Dame fiasco, leaves faithful Catholics feeling sullied, desecrated and dehumanized by men who seem to look for opportunities to slap the Church in the face and do so with impunity simply because they have positions of power."
Bombshell disclosure: it was Ted Kennedy who kept voters from stopping same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. Marc Solomon writes, "Our opponents needed the votes of only 25 percent of the legislature to advance a citizen-led amendment to the ballot. We had lined up two-thirds of the legislature .... But getting those last 15 legislators-those conservative Democrats from working class Massachusetts communities and a few libertarian-leaning Republicans-was very tough. ... We needed Ted Kennedy. 'Could you get me a list of your targets?' one of Kennedy’s key staffers finally asked me. 'Don’t tell anyone I’m asking you for this,' he said. He meant it, and I didn’t." (Bay Windows, Aug. 27, 2009).
Yet Another Liberal Lie Demolished: That George W. Bush tried to avoid serving in Vietnam. It turns out that CBS producer Mary Mapes had known prior to the airing of the September 8 2004 Dan Rather Smear Segment that President Bush, while in the Texas Air National Guard, volunteered for service in Vietnam but was turned down in favor of more experienced pilots. Instead of just simply telling the truth, the Mainstream Media was more interested in destroying George W. Bush while protecting a notorious liar in the sorry episode which has since been called Rathergate. Is anyone really surprised? 
A Meager 4% of Israelis Think President Obama is Pro-Israel. Efforts to improve U.S.-Israeli ties have apparently not improved Obama's reputation in Israel, and in fact his numbers have gone down. The survey, conducted by the Jerusalem Post, found that more than half, 51%, considered the Obama Administration to be more pro-Palestinian than pro-Israeli. Obama's numbers are the lowest of any previous U.S. President.  Evidently, Mr. Obama isn't fooling the Israelis either.
"Judge Orders Homeschooler into Public School for Being Too Religious." The judge held that "it is clear that the home schooling Ms. Voydatch has provided has more than kept up with the academic requirements of the Meredith public school system," but the objection was to the student's "rigidity on questions of faith".
Study: Obamacare Reform Mandate Will Punish Employers, Kill Jobs. A provision in President Obama's health care reform plan that requires businesses to offer health insurance to their workers or face a federal tax would cost employers at least $49 billion dollars a year, putting 5.2 million employees at risk of unemployment or underemployment, according to a new study.  / 
ABC's John Stossel did a report on Government Health Care that reveals the shocking truth of what it would mean for Americans. You can watch it here because ABC has "rescheduled"/delayed its airing several times now. He points out that Canadians wait an average of 23 hours when they go to an Emergency Room. A CT Scan takes a month to obtain. Stossel points out Obamacare will lead to people dying while they wait, effectively saving the government money.
The Liberal ABC and NBC Networks Refuse To Air Ad Critical of Obamacare. The 33-second [ad] by the League of American Voters, which features a neurosurgeon who warns that a government-run health care system will lead to the rationing of procedures and medicine, tells the truth and it highlights one of the biggest vulnerabilities with the Obamacare legislation, which is it rations health care and disproportionately will decimate the quality of health care for seniors. The refusal to air is particularly disturbing in light of ABC's pro Obamacare health care special that aired in prime time last June and was hosted at the White House.  In addition, ABC has blocked the airing of John Stossell's 20/20 episode about Government-run healthcare], see above story.
Shock Waves From the Google Bombs: Recent court cases suggest that a new level of accountability, largely missing from personal blogs and online forum postings, is in the offing. "What you type today can haunt you tomorrow," says Sue Scheff. "People need to know that if you use your mouse and keypad to harm others, there is a price tag." 
Did Attorney General Eric Holder know - or even care - that most of the passengers on Pan Am Flight 103 were Americans? His hand may have been at work behind the scenes to get the terrorist who murdered every passenger on board that aircraft and 11 people in Lockerbie, Scotland released:
Ted Kennedy said, in voting against saving the life of Terri Schiavo, "I'm not sure what Mr. DeLay meant when he said, 'The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior.'" We trust Ted Kennedy understands now.
The late Edward Kennedy did indeed have a profound affect on millions of Americans:
- millions who were aborted, and their mothers hurt, due to Kennedy's pro-abortion policies
- millions who cannot read, due to Kennedy's excluding real choice from No Child Left Behind
- millions who lack health insurance, due to Kennedy's gutting MSAs by limiting insurance deduction levels
- millions who depend on government programs to survive, due to Kennedy's tax-and-spend socialism
May the Lord be merciful with his soul.
The Global Warming myth has been thoroughly debunked, but don't tell that to 55 celebrities who are making a song in a mass media campaign of climate change. Celebrities who regularly fly around the world emitting more carbon dioxide in a year than most people on the planet will their entire lives, are coming together for crisis awareness by recording "Beds'r Burning". 
Obama tries to rekindle image as reformer. Lectures Wall Street on morality.  Problem is, Obama has never satisfactorily explained his reform efforts with Gov. Rod Blagojevich on the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board. 
Doctor Shortage Will Worsen Health Bill Impact. How can Obamacare treat 50 million new patients with no new doctors? The American Association of Medical Colleges notes we now have a shortage of 15,000 doctors — a shortfall expected to grow to 125,000 in 15 years. And if universal health insurance passes, the shortage will grow to over 150,000. 
One idea: M*A*S*H units could be set up outside of hospitals and overworked doctors like Alan Alda could perform emergency surgery in between martinis.
Another example of liberal hatred for society: Vermont is under the control of liberals, who have chosen to pretty-much ignore the poor homeless man who made a lifetime habit of petty theft, breakins, and burglaries in a quaint little village; they all thought he was "harmless"...until he murdered an old lady with a hammer: 
ACORN is once more revealing itself to be an organization of law-breaking liars, this time with a second sting video in a week by the same people who caught them before on the same subject - how to set up an illegal brothel: 
Conservatism is growing, which means Obama's policies and proposals - and the overall liberal/leftist agenda - are going to lose in a major way come 2010: 
The liberal "mainstream" media is still biased, and unfortunately for them, the number of people who believe it's biased and inaccurate is growing. Note to the journalists in question: try telling the truth instead: 
The pilot son of Ilan Ramon, the Israeli astronaut who died in the 2003 Columbia space shuttle disaster, has been killed after his fighter plane crashed in the West Bank, the Israeli military has said. 
Message to evolutionist and atheist Richard Dawkins: You better pray that the Bing-Yahoo deal goes through. Conservapedia ranks in the top 5 search results for the search "Richard Dawkins" at Yahoo UK and Yahoo USA. By the way Richard, Conservapedia certainly has been climbing the search results at Bing for the search result "Richard Dawkins". And Richard, say hello to William Lane Craig and Rabbi Boteach if you happen to see them soon.
Conservatism - still true and still triumphant! South Korea for many years has had low government spending and a fiscally conservative monetary policy. South Korean citizens also work and study hard. South Korea had a 3.9% unemployment rate in June of 2009. Christianity has also experienced rapid growth in South Korea and it recently replaced the UK as the second largest Christian missionary sending country in the world (Approximately 25% of South Koreans are Christians). On the other hand, liberalism has produced economic failure for the economies of California and Spain.
Public school mom complains that she has to pay for kindergarten: "I was very surprised cuz i had never heard of paying for full day kindergarten or heard of paying for any public schooling." Imagine that: people actually paying for public school!
One million patriotic citizens rallied at the nation's capitol for the 9/12 TEA Party 'March on Washington'. They were protesting Barack Hussein Obama's and the Democrats' foolish and damaging role as wealth distributor. People were chanting "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. 
The Indian government makes no decision on the decriminalisation of homosexuality. It appears as if Conservapedia's homosexuality article, which cites Indian scholarship, may have some popularity in India when it comes to the subject of homosexuality. Conservapedia may also have quite a few fans in India. According to Alexa, 6.1% of Conservapedia's web traffic comes from India. Long live India's national cricket team!
Illegal Immigrants Could Not Buy Insurance on New ‘Exchange,’ White House Says
The White House on Friday said it would bar illegal immigrants from purchasing health coverage through a proposed insurance marketplace. But the administration also said that the federal government would continue to require hospitals to provide emergency treatment to illegal immigrants at taxpayer expense.
The question of how illegal immigrants would fare under a proposed overhaul of the health care system came into sharp focus on Wednesday during President Obama’s speech to Congress. Representative Joe Wilson, Republican of South Carolina, shouted “You lie!” when Mr. Obama insisted that his health care overhaul would not insure illegal immigrants. `
Google's widely utilized search engine fails to give homepage recognition to September 11, 2001.  Their stance is naive and in sharp contrast to the sacrifices made by men and women fighting to protect us all. We can only guess that they will have a crafty excuse ready for not honoring 9/11. Compare that to the honor felt for America when visiting the search engine Bing.com.  Bing gives allegiance to America, Google gives allegiance to Sputnik.  In the eight years since 9/11, Google has never commemorated the anniversary. 
Remembering the Horror of a Bright Blue Morning
Eight years ago, hijacked passenger jets destroyed the World Trade Center. The ritual of commemorating this, the bloodiest attack in United States history, will be repeated on Friday near the pit where the Twin Towers once stood. Silence will mark the moments when the buildings were struck and the moments when they fell; politicians and family members of victims will offer words of grief and inspiration; and the official list of victims will be read, name by name, 2,752 in total, one more than last year. 
"Republican House member Joe Wilson shouted, 'You lie' during President Obama's health care speech to Congress on Wednesday." The House member later apologized: "This evening, I let my emotions get the best of me ...."
"Many U.S. taxpayers are unaware that they are now paying for the legal bills of three top former executives for government-run mortgage firm Fannie Mae."  Of the top three recipients of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae, former Senator Barack Obama made the list at number two. 
Under Barack Hussein Obama's Leadership, The United States Now Funds Designated Terror Group Hamas. In January 2009, The White House allocated $20.3 million to Palestinians in Gaza from the United States Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund.  There are some who believe that Palestinians associated with Hamas would be relocated to the United States but that has been proven false.  Keep a watchful eye on Democrats because Americans have been bombarded with all sorts of economic / healthcare programs and serious national security issues are hidden by the partisan media.
Arguments this morning in the U.S. Supreme Court suggest that "the immediate prospect was for a sweeping declaration of independence in politics for companies and advocacy groups formed as corporations." This means that the Court could allow Wal-Mart to spend hundreds of millions to defeat Liberal congressmen running for reelection for pushing unions, and allow the coal industry to spend a similar amount to defeat the liberal global warming fraud.
Al-Qaida’s As-Sahab Media Wing: Sheikh Khalid bin Abdul Rahman Al Husseinan offers “Calm Dialogue with Obama.”
“Obama: The lesson is not at the very beginning. No, no. The lesson is in the end. The one who withdraws first from the battlefield is the loser....Like you’ve raised the slogan ‘yes we can’ means we can. I also have my slogan...my day of happiness is the day I die martyr... Real life, you Obama, for us Muslims, begin after death, Allah is great! 
ObamaCare to make compulsory insurance mandatory. Penalties for failure to comply.  Just as Sen. McCain predicted, "If you're a parent and you're struggling to get health insurance for your children, Senator Obama will fine you." Video
Public schools boot up: "With states across the country facing huge budget deficits and potential devastating cuts to services, the time has come to start charging parents tuition for their children’s public school education." After all, aren't parents charged for day care?

- Help the President "fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders."
Democratic Senators announce their "compromise" framework for socializing medicine: force everyone to buy insurance against their will. "Beginning in 2013, all U.S. citizens and legal residents would be required to have health insurance. ... [T]here would be annual penalties ranging from $750 for an individual to $3800 for a family."
Stimulus plan is a bust: "States: We can't afford costs tied to $5B emergency fund."
(Liberals thought this would stimulate states to raise taxes, but they have not.)
"Gun Owners' Next Victory in D.C." The attorney who secured Second Amendment rights in D.C. v. Heller makes a bold prediction: "The courts will (and should) invalidate Washington's unconditional ban on carrying, as well as similar bans in Wisconsin and Illinois, the only two states to have such bans."
Conservapedia was listed in May of 2009 as one of the 50 most popular conservative websites in terms of web traffic by the conservative blog Right Wing News.  Considering that Conservapedia was only about 3 years old and was doing better in web traffic than some veteran conservative websites, we are certainly pleased with the results we have obtained so far. In May of 2009, the website Right Wing News determined with the help of Alexa data that Conservapedia was ranked 37 out of 50 in terms of its website traffic relative to other popular conservative websites. Conservapedia is looking forward to greatly spreading awareness of Conservapedia via the significant expansion of its YouTube channel subscriber base at Conservapediavideos. Conservapediavideos will likely soon feature a multitude of excellent conservative videos.
The Obama Administration continues to punish Honduras for upholding their democratic constitution. Punishing, meddling, and threats from America's government. At the same time, a sweetheart deal for Communist Cuba. 
American small business owner trounces Catherine Bragg Rep. Lynn Woolsey [D-CA] on the issue of health care reform at a Town Hall meeting.
"In a victory for Republicans and the Obama administration’s critics, Van Jones resigned as the White House’s environmental jobs 'czar' on Saturday." Conservative Glenn Beck is largely credited with being instrumental in bringing down Obama's radical left "green jobs Czar" Van Jones. When is the incompetent Ben Bernanke, re-appointed to be the Chairman of the Board of Governors of the United States Federal Reserve by Obama, going to be fired by Obama? Watch some of the foolish predictions of Ben Bernanke in the video Bernanke: Why are we still listening to this guy?
Rather than searching for decent jobs that are very hard to find, some Americans are deciding to become self-employed. Robert P. Murphy, an economist at the Mises Institute, recommends that one of the best measures to protect against a future economic depression is to develop multiple streams of income rather than risk depending on one or two income sources which may disappear in a depression. In the present economic crises, Americans are using creative ways to launch a wide variety of low cost businesses.
Labor Day hardly a holiday for nearly 15 million who are jobless
Every day it's a battle. The nearly 15 million unemployed Americans won't enjoy Labor Day as a relaxing respite from work. Instead, they'll once again prepare to get up, hit the pavement, and keep hunting for a job. 
Will prosecuting Dick Cheney for putting a catepiller on the big toe of 9/11 terror attack mastermind and mass murderer, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, help save President Obama's sagging poll numbers? 
September 5th marks the anniversary of Blessed Mother Teresa's death. Her firm stance against abortion is just one of the many reasons Catholics expect nothing less than sainthood for the Calcutta nun.
42% of Americans would replace Congress with random folks found in the phone book. Rasmussen reporting found that in addition to the 42%, 16% were undecided, meaning the phone book option was a possibility. Conservapedia is quite confident that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama will ignore the polling results, why? American politics is full speed ahead on the train of liberalism. 
Pro-renewal-energy Spain's unemployment rate is at a devastating 17.9%.  "Spain's experience cited by President Obama as a model reveals with high confidence, by two different methods, that the U.S. should expect a loss of at least 2.2 jobs on average, or about 9 jobs lost for every 4 created, to which we have to add those jobs that non-subsidized investments with the same resources would have created,"  according to researchers at a university in Spain.
Gibbs: Furor over Obama's speech 'silly season'
"I think we've reached a little bit of the silly season when the president of the United States can't tell kids in school to study hard and stay in school," presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters. "I think both political parties agree that the dropout rate is something that threatens our long-term economic success." 
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans to approve building hundreds of new settlements in the West Bank before considering a freeze on construction in the area, a senior Israeli government official said Friday.

White House modifies instructions
for students to 'Help Obama.'
Obama's plan to indoctrinate schoolchildren is on hold. Among the activities suggested by the Department of Education for pre-kindergarten to sixth-grade students: immediately after Obama's speech on the opening day of school, students should discuss what "the president wants us to do" and write letters about "what they can do to help the president." Washington Times
The leading political news website Politico declares: "So Obama and Democrats will return from vacation wounded, divided and uncertain of the best way to turn things around. Many Democrats, especially in the House, were spooked over break by the rowdy town hall meetings and flurry of polls showing independent voters skeptical of their leadership and spending plans." It appears as if Obama and his leftist supporters have met their Waterloo and it's due to Obama's health care policy incompetence.! 
The bestselling version of the Bible, the NIV, will be withdrawn from the market and replaced in 2011 by a new, likely liberal translation by the same professors who produced the much-criticized feminist TNIV. "You should expect those changes that we think were appropriately made in the TNIV to be made," the professor leading the new translation said.
White House to scour personal information on millions of Americans from social networking web sites. This massive undertaking follows Obama Administration’s recent privacy rights abuse, the snitch debacle that was removed under pressure. "...this Administration is at best indifferent to privacy rights and at worst prepared to violate civil liberties for political purposes."
