Liberals Already Attacking Newt

Liberals never take too long to castigate and denigrate someone they don’t like.  Only liberals are really “allowed” to tear apart a political candidate or organization that they don’t cotton to, because as far as they’re concerned, they have to do everything they can to make it impossible for someone on the opposite side of the aisle to fail.  It’s simply part of the process that leftheads subscribe to.

Newt Gingrich no sooner announced his candidacy to become the Republican presidential nominee, when the liberals and leftheads alike came out from under their proverbial rocks to throw some of those rocks at Newt.  It’s all too formulaic and predictable.

The problem of course is that people tend to allow their own personal candidate to say what he wants and not really worry about holding them accountable.  That is for the other party, or the opposing candidate.  The reality is that I have yet to see or hear of a political candidate that is above board in all areas.  No one can be considered without hypocrisy.  The left will never say that and will never shine the light on Mr. Obama.  To hear the leftheads tell it, this country is in wonderful shape all because of what Mr. Obama has been doing.

Here are just a few examples culled from one of the places where people can post their comments after a news story:

And the Republican’s as the most successful war mongering party who drained the entire country of all our money. Billion dollars a day on war while the country dove into a depression and millions lost their house and long term jobs. Put that on your resume, now they come back out of the woodwork in 2012 to start over…….

Gingrich is a fool, only an idiot would consider him fit for even dogcatcher. But he sure knows how to milk the money machine for his own personal gain.

Ah, Newt, such a shining example of your party’s true colors, scandal, adultery, ethics violation, war monger, and against all women’s rights. Yeah, you are a true Georgia peach, just a little over ripe and dried up.”

“Barack Obama is not far left leaning and is not socialist. Truth of the matter is that he is more of a centrist, and the far left don’t think he is liberal enough. Republican/tea party don’t like him because he is black, as Newt’s Civil War comment so eloquently points out. Mr. Obama could be sent from God, and people will find fault with his agenda. But as of yet, the Republicans have not come up with any one I want to vote for. Their group of buffoons is pitiful.”

And so it goes.  Many of these comments are simply asinine.  Of course, let’s not forget to point out that the individual who made the last comment managed to include a comment about Republicans being “racist.”  It plays well in the media.

The idea that Mr. Obama is a centrist is absurd.  He is very far left and people understand this, but the leftheads believe if they deny it enough times (like crying racism) it will become the truth.

Has Mr. Obama gotten us OUT of the war yet?  As I understand it, he has gotten us INTO areas like Libya and elsewhere.  He has okay’d the mission that sent Navy Seals in to kill bin Laden.

What can we expect as time marches on toward the next election?  More of the same from the left and rebuttals from the right, etc., etc., ad nauseum.  Let me ask this:  who in God’s Name would want to run for politics today?  It simply means facing one smear campaign after another.  The issues are not discussed.  They are twisted so that the facts surrounding those issues become clouded with acrimony and castigation.  It takes guts to want to run for office today because a candidate no sooner announces his candidacy and if that candidate is on the right, the leftheads and leftwing media move in for the kill, like vultures on the branch overlooking the latest wounded animal.

If the candidate is on the left, that same leftwing media moves into to throw up every possible blockade in order to protect their candidate.  That’s the way it is and Newt understands that.

Am I saying I would vote for Newt?  At this point, I have not determined anything.  I’m simply praying that God will provide a candidate that conservatives can get behind.  I’m also praying that God will lead that candidate all the way to the White House so we can be done with Socialism, and get back to what this country was founded on:  democracy as a republic of one nation, under God.

 Of course, liberals and leftheads continue the mantra that we are better off under the Obama Administration that the Bush Administration.  The hard cold facts seem to disagree.  Then of course, I guess if you’re one of those individuals who loves debt, enjoys watching the dollar sink, can party while banks fail and all the rest, then obviously, Mr. Obama’s tenure as president is good for you.  So what can we expect if Mr. Obama is re-elected?  There is no reason to think that the picture would improve.  We would have four more years of the same with liberals loving it and continuing to blame Bush for our economic woes.

Just take the last item in the above list:  In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation’s history..  Over 27 times as fast.  Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane going 27 times faster, it would be doing  1,755 MPH.

Rapper Common Brings Ghetto to the White House

Maybe people will wake up to the fact that Mr. Obama is someone other who he pretends to be and maybe…just maybe, he won’t have a second term in office because he’ll be voted out in the next election. One can only hope and pray.

Urantia and Other Esoteric Writings

I’ve been reading sections of the Book of Urantia as well as other esoteric writings that have been written by alleged angels, archangels, and other divine spirits or a sort. It has always been fascinating to me to read what some other-worldly spirit says about God, Jesus, the Creation, as well as any number of things.

Judgment Day – May 21st – is Fast Approaching

Took my wife to San Francisco yesterday and on the way there and back, I saw numerous lighted billboards that reflect Harold Camping’s view on the return of Christ. Mr. Camping has made these judgments before and was wrong. Now, he has arrived at the May 21st day through a complicated set of math problems (Mr. Camping was an engineer before he began Family Bible Radio). He states that in his attempts to narrow down the date of Jesus’ return before, his math was wrong. Apparently now, his math is correct.

Islam’s War Against the World

When will you decide that enough is enough? When will YOU make your voice heard? When will YOU come to understand that the best OFFENSE is a strong DEFENSE? Radical Islam understands only one thing: force. The radical Islamist is no different than the average violent criminal. They will not back down until you give them a reason to do so.

Read on and if it makes sense to you, wonderful. If it begins to open your eyes to the truth behind the evil of Islam, then I hope you will be willing to do something about it. Because in truth, far too many of our elected officials, talk show leftheads and the liberal media refuses to admit there is a problem. If there is no problem, nothing needs fixing. Think again before it’s too late.

Proof of the Monstrosity of Radical Islam

Should you choose to view the link, you will see the aftermath of two murders. One is a 9-year-old boy and the other child is much younger. Both have been beheaded. How can this happen? Is this merely an anomaly, or exception to the rule? It does not appear to be the case.

What Do Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Seventh-day Adventists Have in Common?

After all, how many times have you – as a SDA – told people that your beliefs are essentially their beliefs? How many times have you tried to pass yourself off as a mainline, orthodox individual? If so, then leaving the SDA and attaching yourself to a mainline, orthodox church will not affect your salvation, will it? If you believe it WILL, then obviously something is wrong. Obviously, you have been living a lie and when all is said and done, you do not really believe that other groups can be or are saved, do you?
