Obama, Planned Parenthood and his Daughters, Again

tonya-reaves-0722

I don't mean to be a nudge, I really don't. But it's starting to creep me out, how much Obama loves Planned Parenthood, and how he clearly lives with the expectation that his daughters are going to kill his grandchildren, and negate the coming of love.“Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that is a bad idea,” Obama said. “I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices. We’re not going backwards, we’re going forwards.”Obama’s … [Read more...]

Feeling Optimistic on the Roberts Ruling on Obamacare

Well! That was an invigorating and enjoyable 24-hour news cycle, wasn't it? The hysterics; the swearing and f'bombing; the renewed exposure of "real media" as ranting and incompetent drama queens; Nancy Pelosi's predictable incoherence; the wholesale giving over of Americans to their emotions! "We won!", "We lost"; "America is over!" "America is getting a second chance!"; "It's a tax!", "It's a penalty!"; "She's my daughter and my sister!"Oops. That's Chinatown, Jake.Yesterday many in … [Read more...]

Pity the President – UPDATE

He is such a small and insecure man:The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. My first thought was, he must be joking. But he wasn’t—it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president sin … [Read more...]

Sebelius, Gowdy, Nuance and the HHS Mandate – UPDATED

obama sebelius

I am inclined to want to see the actual transcripts of this exchange between HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Representative Trey Gowdy (R–SC) at a hearing this past Thursday. It's not that I don't "believe" CNA in its coverage, but, I guess I just need to verify its completeness and accuracy for myself.Why? Because it is staggering to comprehend that the vast and discretionary powers conferred upon "the secretary" by the Affordable Care Act are to be wielded by a woman displaying so l … [Read more...]

Sarah Palin in Wisconsin: Wit, Clarity, Coherence

I finally got to watch the video of Sarah Palin's speech, which is up in two parts at Hillbuzz.Gotta say it -- Sarah Palin doesn't use teleprompters, she doesn't use Orwellian double-speak that is so preposterous even Jon Stewart has to call it out; she is not contemptuous of her audience, as the president increasingly appears to be, she has enough wit to grab a phrase and have fun with it, ("so yeah, we're here, we're clear, get used to it!") and, most importantly, the former Governor of … [Read more...]

Because we're all activists, now…

Screenwriter Barbara Nicolosi has taken the time to write a little primer-of-sorts, on what Hollywood knows about delivering a message and influencing thinking. It's very insightful and I'm thinking the Army of Davids, the Tea Party, the nation full of newly-hatched activists and fledgling politicians could use a little "inside baseball" information to help them do battle with the Goliaths!Here is what Barbara says about getting the message out:For nearly one hundred years, the … [Read more...]

If Obama was just going to be Bush, anyway…

While I can't find the links, I do seem to recall that a few times during the Bush years, Glenn Reynolds waxed philosophical over at Instapundit, wondering if it would take the Democrats winning elections -- and thus taking control of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars -- in order for them to finally get behind them.I'm remembering that now, because it seems that the Obama Administration's stated mission for Libya is one of regime change and the establishment of system of governance.Which sounds … [Read more...]

The Toxicity of Idolatry – UPDATED

My Tuesday column at First Things is up, and today we're talking about the strange gods we put before us and the toxic effect it has had on our politics:[In Barack Obama] . . . chattering classes, largely indifferent-to-agnostic-to-hostile toward religion, had suddenly found themselves a god, and to speak his name in vain could not be countenanced. Heretics sinning against the speak-not commandment were speedily feathered with the gooiest tar available and then ostracized from polite … [Read more...]

Ride on, King Obama! – UPDATED

Instapundit links to an interesting piece at Powerline, where it is suggested that President Obama might prefer to be a King:Obama enjoys being president, and he especially treasures the symbolic significance of being the first African-American president. That's how his supporters feel, too. I haven't heard anyone defend his actual performance in a long time, but there is still widespread satisfaction with the symbolic value of his presidency. So why don't we make him king? If being the first … [Read more...]

The Idea of Praying Through Time

Pondering prayer, and the notion of praying through time, thanks to our Holy Father:We can love ourselves only if we have first been loved by someone else. The life a mother gives to her child is not just physical life; she gives total life when she takes the child's tears and turns them into smiles. It is only when life has been accepted and is perceived as accepted that it becomes also acceptable. Man is that strange creature that needs not just physical birth but also appreciation if he is … [Read more...]
