More People For Same Sex Marriage Than Before?


Was watching a video interview of Gavin Newsom, mayor of San Francisco, who said in 2000 Proposition 22 was passed by 61.4% and now Proposition 8 is passed by only 52%. He said that is progress, showing a growing acceptance of gay marriage in California.

We would have hoped that Prop. 8 would pass by a bigger margin than 52.1%. But another way to look at it is in terms of the actual number of votes. The 61.4% in 2000 was 4,618,673 votes. The 52.1% this time was 6,509,858 votes. So nearly 2 million voters wanted marriage to be limited to a man and a woman this time.

If Democracy Doesn't Work, Try Anarchy

By: SW

Yesterday the Supreme Court in California agreed to hear cases contesting the constitutionality of Proposition 8. So the legal battle now begins.

In the meantime, the opponents of Prop. 8, who advocated tolerance and equal rights, are not waiting for the court to help them overturn the majority voters' wishes. In an article titled If Democracy Doesn't Work, Try Anarchy, Chuck Norris wrote the following article:

Protestors of Proposition 8 in California (the marriage amendment) shoved aside a 69-year-old woman who was bearing a cross. They reportedly spit on her and stomped on her cross. They then aligned themselves in a human barricade, blocking the media from getting to or nterviewing the woman.

Prop. 8 supporter Jose Nunez, 37, was assaulted brutally while distributing yard signs to other supporters after church services at the St. Stanislaus Parish in Modesto.

Calvary Chapel Chino Hills was spray painted by vandals after they learned that the church served as an official collection point for Prop. 8 petitions.

Letters containing white powder (obviously mimicking anthrax) were sent to the Salt Lake City headquarters of the Mormon church and to a temple in Los Angeles. (Thankfully, the FBI said the substance was nontoxic.) The 25-year artistic director of the California Musical Theatre, who also happens to be a Mormon, was muscled to resign because of his $1,000 donation to the campaign to ban gay marriage in California.

A pro-homosexual, pro-anarchy organization named Bash Back marched into the middle of a church service and flung fliers and condoms to the congregants. They also hung a banner from the balcony that featured two lesbians in provocative positions at the pulpit.

And lastly, the tolerance-preaching activists also have taken their anger to the blogosphere, where posts have planted ideas ranging from burning churches to storming the citadels of government until our society is forced to overturn Prop. 8. You even can find donor blacklists online. The lists include everyone who financially backed Prop. 8 -- even those who gave as little as $46 -- with the obvious objective that these individuals will be bantered and boycotted for
doing so.

What's wrong with this picture? Lots.

First, there's the obvious inability of the minority to accept the will of the majority. Californians have spoken twice, through the elections in 2000 and 2008. Nearly every county across the state (including Los Angeles County) voted to amend the state constitution in favor of traditional marriage.

Nevertheless, bitter activists simply cannot accept the outcome as being truly reflective of the general public. So they have placed the brainwashing blame upon the crusading and misleading zealotry of those religious villains: the Catholics, evangelical Protestants, and especially Mormons, who allegedly are robbing the rights of American citizens by merely executing their right to vote and standing upon their moral convictions and traditional views.

What's surprising (or maybe not so) is that even though 70 percent of African-Americans voted in favor of Proposition 8, protests against black churches are virtually nonexistent. And everyone knows exactly why: Such actions would be viewed as racist. Yet these opponents of Prop. 8 can protest vehemently and shout obscenities in front of Mormon temples without ever being accused of religious bigotry. There's a clear double standard in our society. Where are the
hate-crime cops when religious conservatives need them?

There were many of us who passionately opposed Obama, but you don't see us protesting in the streets or crying "unfair." Rather, we are submitting to a democratic process and now asking how we can support "our" president. Just because we don't like the election outcome doesn't give us the right to bully those who oppose us. In other words, if democracy doesn't tip our direction, we don't swing to anarchy. That would be like the Wild West, the resurrection of which seems to be happening in these postelection protests.

I agree with Prison Fellowship's founder, Chuck Colson, who wrote: "This is an outrage. What hypocrisy from those who spend all of their time preaching tolerance to the rest of us! How dare they threaten and attack political opponents? We live in a democratic country, not a banana republic ruled by thugs."

Regardless of one's opinion of Proposition 8, it is flat-out wrong and un-American to intimidate and harass individuals, churches and businesses that are guilty of nothing more than participating in the democratic process.

Political protests are one thing, but when old-fashioned bullying techniques are used that restrict voting liberties and even prompt fear of safety, activists have crossed a line. There is a difference between respectfully advocating one's civil rights and demanding public endorsement of what many still consider to be unnatural sexual behavior through cruel coercion and repression tactics. One thing is for sure: The days of peaceful marches, such as those headed up by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., seem to be long gone.

The truth is that the great majority of Prop. 8 advocates are not bigots or hatemongers. They are American citizens who are following 5,000 years of human history and the belief of every major people and religion: Marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. Their pro-Prop. 8 votes weren't intended to deprive any group of its rights; they were safeguarding their honest convictions regarding the boundaries of marriage.

On Nov. 4, the pro-gay community obviously was flabbergasted that a state that generally leans left actually voted right when it came to holy matrimony. But that's exactly what happened; the majority of Californians -- red, yellow, black and white -- voted to define the margins of marriage as being between one man and one woman. California is the 30th state in our union to amend its constitution in doing so, joining Florida and Arizona in this election.

Like it or not, it's the law now. The people have spoken.

LA Times Only Just Notices Obama Has Thin Resume?


November 18, 2008

Interestingly, Dan Morain of the L.A. Times has just discovered that Barack Obama has a pretty thin resume prior to being elevated to the presidency. Between 1993 and '96, Obama, the much-ballyhooed "Constitutional scholar," had only an unusually low 3,723 billable hours of legal work accrued over a four-year stint with his law firm employer Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Gallard. Further, he seems to have worked on but few cases and made little impact commensurate with his reputation. The question I have, of course, is why is the L.A. Times only NOW interested that Obama was "involved in relatively few cases before entering politics"? Where was this investigating before the election?

The Morain piece begins by recounting how Obama has so often made a big deal out of his days as a "civil-rights attorney" claiming it a key ingredient of his early, formative community development years. Yet, Morain finds that there isn't much record proving that Obama did a whole heck-of-a-lot back in those days

Must watch video! Gays ran Christians out of Castro, San Fran! "'We're going to kill you.!"


Only in San FranFREAKO will they tolerate such Travesty!

Hundreds of homosexual activists rushed out of bars and swarmed a group of Christians who were singing songs in San Francisco's Castro District – and some even threatened to kill the worshippers.

A group of Christians had been singing and praying in the "gay" district for several days, but they never expected an angry mob would run them out. However, that's what happened Friday night.

One woman who was attacked told her story with Pastor Lou Engle at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. She said the group's fellowship had been peaceful for several nights before the riot.

"People would come stand with us and join us," she said. "We got to pray for some people."

But then angry men began yelling profanities and warning the Christians to leave the district.

One asked, "Why are you here?"

The leader of the group said, "We're here to worship God, and we're here because we love you."

A group of men approached the Christians and covered them with a large cloth, backing them into a corner. Then the angry mob began swearing and growing larger. The bars began emptying out, and a crowd completely surrounded the Christians.

The worship group began singing "Amazing Grace," while an estimated 500 "gay" advocates sang, "We Shall Overcome."

The woman said she and her friend were doused with hot coffee. One man took a Bible from her friend, hit her on the head with it, pushed her to the ground and began kicking her. People began lunging at the Christian group, blowing whistles in their ears.

"They started saying, 'We're going to kill you,'" she said. "They started taking our pictures and saying, 'We're going to kill you. We know who you are."

Then she said a man jumped through the crowd and pushed her forehead.

Just then, a squad of police officers arrived in riot gear, surrounding the Christians and forming a protective human wall.

She said the police told them, "You have to leave if you want to make it out."

When the group continued praying, an officer came back and said, "You don't have a choice anymore. We're going to escort you out."

The officers then took the Christians to their cars. The angry mob began lunging at them through the riot gear and chanting "Shame on you!"

Some yelled, "We are going to follow you all the way home!" Others called the Christians "hypocrites."

One man screamed into a camera, "We don't ever want them coming back. Do you understand that, other Christians? Do you understand that, other Mormons? I'm talking to you, people. Yeah, you. Stay out of our neighborhood if you don't like us. Leave us alone!"

The woman said her group had merely organized a peaceful fellowship and wasn't there to condemn homosexuals.

"We hadn't preached," she said. "We hadn't evangelized. We worshipped God in peace, and we were about to die for it."

"Their rights were respected," Joe Schmitz, an opponent of Prop. 8, told San Francisco's KTVU Channel 2. "They got a chance to go ahead and pray on the sidewalk, and I had the opportunity to express my freedom of speech, which is telling them to get out of my neighborhood."

The following day, approximately 20,000 people marched in San Francisco to protest passage of California's Proposition 8 protecting traditional marriage. Several thousand people conducted other protests around the nation in cities such as Manhattan, Chicago and Los Angeles. According to reports, many protesters feeling emboldened by the recent election chanted, "Yes we can!" – a slogan popularized by the Barack Obama campaign.

Get a big laugh out of Jodie Miller on Obamanation!


Jodie Miller always give a great time laughing out silly! Is she with Media Research Center? Enjoy this video! Get rid of some of the stresses under Obamanation. We will survive better with a sense of humor.

Current Recession last through June, 09- according to economists


We will survive this one, don't lose heart!

The US economy probably went into recession in April in a downturn likely to last 14 months, according to a survey of forecasts released Monday by the Philadelphia Federal Reserve.

The 51 economists on average predicted an annualized drop in US economic output of 2.9 percent in the fourth quarter and a 1.1 percent decline in the first quarter of 2009, the Philly Fed said.

More than half of the panelists say their outlook is based on the assumption that Congress will pass a new stimulus package, with a size estimated at 211 billion dollars.

According to the forecasters, the stimulus package will begin to affect real growth in the first quarter of 2009. They saw modest growth of 0.8 percent and 0.9 percent returning in the second and third quarters, respectively, improving to 2.3 percent in the fourth quarter.

You can forget the Birth Certificate - OBAMA ADMITS BRITISH CITIZEN AT BIRTH


Don't be distracted by the birth certificate and Indonesia issues. They are irrelevant to Senator Obama's ineligibility to be President. Since Barack Obama's father was a Citizen of Kenya and therefore subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of Senator Obama's birth, then Senator Obama was a British Citizen "at birth", just like the Framers of the Constitution, and therefore, even if he were to produce an original birth certificate proving he were born on US soil, he still wouldn't be eligible to be President.

The Framers of the Constitution, at the time of their birth, were also British Citizens and that's why the Framers declared that, while they were Citizens of the United States, they themselves were not "natural born Citizens". Hence their inclusion of the grandfather clause in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President;

That's it right there. (Emphasis added.)

The Framers wanted to make themselves eligible to be President, but they didn't want future generations to be Governed by a Commander In Chief who had split loyalty to another Country. The Framers were comfortable making an exception for themselves. They did, after all, create the Constitution. But they were not comfortable with the possibility of future generations of Presidents being born under the jurisdiction of Foreign Powers, especially Great Britain and its monarchy, who the Framers and Colonists fought so hard in the American Revolution to be free of.


Pro-'gay marriage' rallies planned nationwide


There they go again, gay activists going all out to disrupt services, punish those churches , whp dare to stand tin their path of their agenda!

Protests in all 50 states aim to pressure California Supremes to overturn Prop. 8

nov. 15, 08

Same-sex marriage advocates have marked today as a "National Day of Protest" and are planning marches around the country to rally against California's Proposition 8, a voter initiative that passed on Election Day, defining marriage in the state as strictly between one man and one woman.

Organizers have march leaders and groups coordinated in all 50 states, even in towns as small as Decorah, Iowa, population 8,172.

"Guess the whole 'Yes We Can' Obama thing got something started," writes poster kgongre, advertising the event on "Too bad so many who voted for progress with one hand tried to shove us back in the closet with the other. No. Not going to work that way this time.

"Seems a lot of us Gay folk are just about fed up with being told who we can and can't marry," kgongre writes.

The planned day of protest is being coordinated through a website called Join the Impact, which states its movement seeks to "look forward toward what needs to be done now to achieve one goal: Full equality for ALL."

Join the Impact has served as a clearinghouse for international supporters of the protest, enabling the groups to coordinate their marches to begin at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time, across the U.S. and in at least nine other countries.

'Constitutional crisis' looming over Obama's birth location- another suit


I respect Alan Keys, whom I have met & we share the same panels on an occasssion, his suit only adds to this burden for Obama to come clean.

Alan Keyes lawsuit warns America may see 'usurper' in Oval Office

The California secretary of state should refuse to allow the state's 55 Electoral College votes to be cast in the 2008 presidential election until President-elect Barack Obama verifies his eligibility to hold the office, alleges a California court petition filed on behalf of former presidential candidate Alan Keyes and others.

The legal action today is just the latest is a series of challenges, some of which have gone as high as the U.S. Supreme Court, over the issue of Obama's status as a "natural-born citizen," a requirement set by the U.S. Constitution.

Rove: GOP In Decent Shape For 2010


I believe the prospect of us taking back more Governors & Congressional seats then is good. Be optimistic! This is a loss in battle, but the war is not over yet!

The GOP will automatically gain seats from redistricting, and new presidents historically take a beating in Congress in the midterm election. Just ask Clinton. organizing conservatives across the nation!


Check it out!

what we need at grassroots!

Many groups already formed in many States!

The hypocrisy and audacity of Obama demanding invasive disclosure of applicants for his Cabinet...!


President-Elect Obama need to honestly and completely fill out his own application before demanding such from people who like to work for him. Should he not be held to a higher standard? Fact is he is the MOST UNVETTED, dishonest candidate, always dodging issues or being evasive in his answers to inquiries! Will someone ask him this question during the next press conference?

Do you know that the questionnaire being sent by his office to those who desire to serve on the cabinet and other high-ranking posts may be the most extensive in history, even invasive?

It includes 63 requests for personal and professional records, some covering applicants’ spouses and grown children. Children too? Get this! Applicants are asked whether they or anyone in their family owns a gun! They must include any e-mail that might embarrass the president-elect, along with any blog posts and links to their Facebook pages.

It asks applicants to “please list all aliases or ‘handles’ you have used to communicate on the Internet.” Wow! Gestapo is coming to town! We need to know it all! The vetting process for executive branch jobs has reached a peak! However, why hasn’t Obama himself fully disclosed his own radical, leftist, shady PAST? This is the height of hypocrisy!

“President-elect Obama made a commitment to change the way Washington does business, and the vetting process exemplifies that,” said Stephanie Cutter, chief spokeswoman for the Obama transition office. Okay, but why doesn’t he lead the way by EXAMPLE? Where is his medical records, his college records, thesis, birth certificate…? HELLO? Will Obama disclose his membership in the socialist New Party? His Marxist mentors?

A former Clinton White House official who insisted on anonymity said in an e-mail message, “I believe it is considerably more detailed than we had to fill out in ’93. Interesting that they want spouse information on everything — means lots of folks are going to have to list the very prominent — and controversial — companies that their spouses work/lobby for."

The first question asks applicants not just for a résumé, but for every résumé and biographical statement issued by them or others for the past 10 years — a likely safeguard against résumé falsehoods, one Clinton administration veteran said.

Most information must cover at least the past decade, including memberships in groups that have discriminated on the basis of race, sex, disability, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. How about Obama’s membership in the most RACIST, Anti-American Trinity Church of Christ?

There are no time limits for some information, including liens, tax audits, lawsuits, legal charges, bankruptcies or arrests. Howe about telling us the 4-5 lawsuits against him?

The answer could duplicate the response to Question 8: “Briefly describe the most controversial matters you have been involved with during the course of your career.” Well, Obama would have a long list! His helping Racist Louis Farrakhan to organize million man march in DC! His serving closely with Ayers, his campaigning for Commie Odinga in Kenya in 2006 on tax payer’s money, as a starter.

There will be more forms, for security and ethics clearances from the FBI. Has the FBI thoroughly vetted Obama, anyone ever looked into this? With his BAGGAGE, he would not even past a low security clearance! .

Did you know German Christians elected Hitler? Time to evaluate this!


I have felt for a long time that when a people is in despair or feel hopeless, and someone came along to offer HOPE, they would vote in the Anti-Christ to get relief & hope for the BEST!
Erwin Lutzer is a great author, I have read a couple of his books.

November 13, 2008

Economy in a freefall. Political rhetoric. An apathetic electorate dismayed by the slide of their country into irrelevence. Theological liberalism. Doctrinal indifference.

America, 2008?

No. Germany, just before electing Adolf Hitler to lead their country, with the apparent support of the majority of those who considered themselves Christians.

We're rereading a book []by Erwin Lutzer []. In it Lutzer looks at the holocaust and the rise of Hitler and asks the question: where was the Church? This book is a fascinating read, particularly in this time of economic upheaval and election year rhetoric.


Did you know that Hitler was elected to power through a democratic process? He only became a dictator after he had risen to power through the voting process. And the people elected him in large part because they were convinced he would fix the deteriorating economy and restore Germany to the prominence and prosperity it had once enjoyed. Writes Lutzer:

...he would give the appearance of being one of the masses, but in reality he would be quite another...At times he could be charming and forgiving...Privately (and sometimes publicly) he prided himself in his honesty, yet often he reveled in his abilty to deceive. "The German people must be misled if the support of the masses is required," he mused.


Hitler holds a fascination for us because his dictatorship enjoyed such wide support of the people. Perhaps never in history was a dictator so well liked. He had the rare gift of motivating a nation to want to follow him. Communist leaders such as Lenin or Mao Tse-tung rose to power through revolutions that cost millions of lives; consequently they were hated by the masses. Hitler attracted not only the support of the middle class but also of university students and professors.

MSM now admits Obama is a liberal! Secong coming of FDR! Watch this video!


Remember back during the campaign, when the Obama folks and their MSM cohorts adamantly denied that their man was a liberal? How they would react with scorn to that National Journal study that ranked him the most liberal senator? Nonsense! Very misleading. After all, this is the man who doesn't believe in a red America and a blue America, but in the United States of America. Someone with a history of reaching across partisan lines [even if no good examples were handy at the moment].

So . . . remember all that? Well, forget it. Now that Obama is safely ensconced in his Office of the President-Elect, the MSM can let the [ill-concealed to many of us] cat out of the bag: yes, he's a liberal. Big time! In fact, Obama is nothing less than the second coming of the biggest American liberal icon of all times: FDR!

Time editor Rick Stengel proudly announced the news on today's Morning Joe, unveiling the magazine's new cover which portrays a photo-shopped Obama from that iconic photo of a jaunty FRR in his convertible, hand on the wheel and cigarette holder in place. With "Happy Days Are Here Again" playing merrily in the background, Stengel explained the story.

Rahm Emanuel has proposed, in his book "The Plan", that young people, between the ages of 18 and 25, be enlisted for 3 months of civilian service. They would report for basic civil defense training in their state or community to learn what to do in the event of biochemical, neclear, or conventional attack. On WMAL Radio, Washington, DC, this morning, I heard Chris Plante tell people about this book and about Emanuel's youth training. He played a radio snip of Obama saying that "this youth corps should be as strong and as well-financed as our military..."

Jindal for President 2012?


We need to vett him & anyone carefully.

The rumor mill is churning again, this time the rumor is Governor Bobby Jindal will run for President in 2012. Jindal was on John McCain's short list for Vice President this year, but turned the offer down and was never officially vetted. McCain was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno Tuesday night, talking up Jindal and his policies. Senator John McCain said, "Sarah Palin is amongst some like Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, the Governor of Louisiana.

Democrats plotting to confiscate workers' personal retirement accounts - including 401(k)s and IRAs -


Watch out! They are coming! 401 K already turning to 101K, for millions! This is adding insult to injury!
There might be a backlash in next election.

Democrats in the U.S. House have been conducting hearings on proposals to confiscate workers' personal retirement accounts - including 401(k)s and IRAs - and convert them to accounts managed by the Social Security Administration. Triggered by the financial crisis the past two months, the hearings reportedly were meant to stem losses incurred by many workers and retirees whose 401(k) and IRA balances have been shrinking rapidly. The testimony of Teresa Ghilarducci, professor of economic policy analysis at the New School for Social Research in New York, in hearings Oct. 7 drew the most attention and criticism.

Sarah Palin saved GOP from landslide defeat


As Richard Nixon wrote, “history is written by liberals,” but the story of the 2008 campaign is too important to cede to them the analysis of what happened. A close analysis of the returns indicates several key realities:

a) Sarah Palin made a vast difference in McCain’s favor. Compared to 2004, McCain lost 11 points among white men, according to the Fox News exit poll, but only four points among white women. Obama’s underperformance among white women, evident throughout the fall, may be chalked up, in large part, to the influence of Sarah Palin. She provided a rallying point for women who saw their political agenda in terms larger than abortion. She addressed the question of what it is like to be a working mother in today’s economy and society and resonated with tens of millions of white women who have not responded to the more traditional, and liberal, advocates for their gender.

b) Turnout did not increase substantially. Despite predictions (by me and others) of a vastly greater voter turnout, it didn’t happen. About 127 million people voted in 2008, compared to 122 million in 2004. By contrast, turnout rose by almost 20 million between 2000 and 2004. The emphasis on early voting and the heavy participation in primaries indicated the likelihood of a huge increase in turnout, but, on Election Day, the turnout was modest.

c) The black vote made a huge difference; but young people did not. Obama, as expected, generated a big increase in African-American voter turnout. Fox News’s exit polls estimate that blacks constituted 13 percent of the turnout in 2008, compared with 11 percent in 2004 and 10 percent in 2000. But voters under 30 years of age were still the same 11 percent of the vote that they were in 2004.

The Missing Obama Landslide

November 12, 2008

The results are in: Obama 52 percent. McCain 46 percent. The "Obama Landslide" is pure fiction. Republicans have no reason to move to Harper's Canada (this year) although Berlusconi's conservative Italy looks simply divine.

In 1988, George H.W. Bush won 53.4%, against a feisty Democrat, and a hostile media. Thus, this year's election is more of a symbolic made-for-television election story, than a mammoth landslide movie. Now it is time for reality to kick in.

Days, nay weeks before the polls, however, there were many landslide theme stories. "Yes, this could be 1932 again," enthused Andrew Sullivan in "Obama rides landslide machine" (UK Times, Oct. 19). Recall FDR's glorious anti-free speech days.

In "How the Coming Obama Landslide Will Trump The Bradley Effect," the Huffington Post's Steve Kettmann pontificated about a massive win for the Democrat (Oct. 10). "If Obama can really pull off a landslide, we the American people will have spoken loud and clear that it is time to come together" and "turn away from the politics of division and resentment" that liberals love to wax lyrical about. "An Obama landslide? You betcha."

Fake polls and propaganda talking points are also inseparable allies, and tend to dishearten voters. Looking back, over some of those final pro-Obama polls, one can now demonstrate that they are as scientific as Al Gore's last polar bear studies.

The New York Times and Newsweek, of course, win silver and gold for the most inaccurate numbers. CBS/Times, for example, forecast an 11-point Obama win, 52-41, whilst the leftwing Newsweek prophesized a 12-point victory for The One, 53-41. As Ann Coulter points out in "Eighty-Four Percent Say They'd Never Lie To A Pollster" (Oct. 15, 2008), calm heads need to (a) see polls in their historical context and (b) see polls in their current political context (but hide your money under the bed, just in case).

States Coulter: "Reviewing the polls printed in The New York Times and The Washington Post in the last month of every presidential election since 1976, I found the polls were never wrong in a friendly way to Republicans. When the polls were wrong, which was often, they overestimated support for a Democrat, usually by about 6 to 10 points." An example: "In 1980, Ronald Reagan beat Carter by nearly 10 points, 51 percent to 41 percent. In a Gallup Poll released days before the election on Oct. 27, it was Carter who led Reagan 45 percent to 42 percent." Once again, history speaks volumes.

Looking over the new election map too, we see that even in Obama's America, the "flyover lands" are overwhelmingly steak-and-potato, pro-life. South Carolina, Nebraska, Montana, Alaska, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho, still vote Republican in spite of the media's anti-conservative hostility, in an economic downturn. Here are some more extraordinary results:

- McCain's success in Oklahoma (66%), now America's reddest state. Curiously, the name Oklahoma comes from a local native Indian phrase okla homma, meaning red people.

- McCain's success in big mixed-marriage states like Alaska (62%) and NASCAR-friendly states like Idaho (62%).

- Mc Cain's success in Jerusalem. The GOP is able to win over many American Jews living in Israel, but not Florida's Jewish retirement villages (this year).

- McCain's success in Utah (62%). The Mormon-majority "redneck" region is also a center of technology and research (with the highest birthrate of any state). Gay liberals just can't seem to beat The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

But this is also a schizophrenic time for leftwing California, one of America's bluest states. Gay marriage is out. And, so too are radical green policies, for now. Hmmm...did Andrew Sullivan see that freight train coming? Hardly a cry for liberalism.

So, I guess this means that the Huffington Post will have to live with a certain amount of disappointment. Barack "52 percent" Obama does not have an FDR Landslide, with 42 states and a Mosaic mandate.

Is Ann Coulter going to do a Michael Moore and sleep in for, say, three days, and eat her concerns away? Will the GOP whine about sexism and ageism for the next four years? Will Bush's staff -- like Clinton/Gore's before him -- trash the White House before they leave and ask taxpayers to foot the bill? No, no, and no.

In 2009, I'm going to sit back and watch Obama lead, and make good on his magical promises. You see, even Californians can't live off tear-inducing slogans. Or fake landslides. In the end, 2008, the symbolic election, is important for obvious reasons, but so too is running a country, and even symbols must lead.

Poll Results: Which Of The Following Candidates Would You Like To See The GOP Run In 2012


Personally, no Rudy, no Jeb Bush. I know Dr. Ron Paul personally, he does not have a chance. Mitt Romney, mixed feelings. Gov. Jindall , Indian Republican, knows the issues, is well respected, I have watched him some, but not enough time to conclude whether he is the best yet. He might be more electable than Sarah Palin, too early to say.

November 10, 2008

Here are the results of a poll of RWN's readers that I ran on Friday. There were 1,355 responses to the following question,

If you had to pick today, which of the following candidates would you like to see the GOP run in 2012?

Here are the results.

11) Charlie Crist: 1% 10) Tim Pawlenty: 1% 9) Mark Sanford: 1% 8) Jeb Bush: 2% 7) Rudy Giuliani: 2% 6) Mike Huckabee: 4% 5) Ron Paul: 5% 4) Mitt Romney: 6% 3) Duncan Hunter: 6% 2) Bobby Jindal: 23% 1) Sarah Palin: 48%

“Steele as RNC chair with Newt behind the scenes. Jindal/Palin 2012.”

This will be a DREAM ticket. Gov. Jindal is Asian, Indian, quite savvy, articulate. Steel /Gingrich will be good como too.

Hamas: We met Obama's advisers (secretly!)


This is what many suspected was going on but the MSM would not cover how numerous terrorists groups endorsed or at least rooted for Obama. This is treasonous!
November 11, 2008
Hamas held a meeting in the Gaza Strip several months ago with aides to President-elect Barack Obama, but the terror group was asked to keep the contacts secret until after last week's elections, according to a senior Hamas official.

Ahmed Yousef, Hamas' chief political adviser in Gaza, told the leading Al-Hayat Arabic-language newspaper Hamas has maintained regular communication with Obama aides that even continued during the past week.

"We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama)," Yousuf told Al-Hayat.

Yousuf said Hamas's contact with Obama's advisers was ongoing, adding that relations were maintained after Obama's electoral victory last Tuesday.

Obama Invents 'Office of the President-Elect'


He's not yet in the seat of the WH, already shoiws signs of being a despot, a RULER, a lawless politician!

Barack Obama has created a stir by proclaiming that he heads “The Office of President-Elect” — an office that does not officially exist.

At his first news conference on Nov. 7, Obama stood at a podium bearing a sign that read: “Office of the President-Elect. Also, his Web site,, bears the words “Office of the President-Elect” at the top of its home page.

Writer Larry Anderson referred to the “made-up little title” on the American Thinker Web site, and declared: “I nearly busted a gut ...

“Once again, [Obama] can’t wait to invest himself with the trappings of office.”

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin wondered: “What other make-believe offices are they going to invent between now and Inauguration Day? I can’t ever recall in my lifetime any mention of such an office.”
