Let's stop political sleaze in the political arena. This applies to Democrats, Republicans and Independent politicians alike. Of the two major political parties, the Republicans seem more responsive and quicker to call for their wayward party colleagues to resign (Rep Mark Foley), than are the Democrats (Rep. William Jefferson, etc.) who continue to embrace even the most deviant among them. This should equally apply to the foisting of guilt and debt on the taxpaying public based on the senseless fantasy (read that, lie) of manmade global warming.

Barack Obama's Mad World
Barack Obama fought against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act which would have provided basic medical care to any infants that survive an abortion attempt. He wants to kill those infants born alive.

Jeff Johnson reported on OneNewsNow on Thursday, 3/27/2008, that Warren Smith, author of Reinventing Jesus Christ: The New Gospel, says media icon Oprah Winfrey “has become a false prophet for a false Jesus.” Bill Keller goes even further in his 3/3/08 commentary, "Oprah is Selling Spiritual Crack and Leading Millions of Souls to Hell" he refers to Oprah as a "New Age Witch," "Rev. Oprah," and and has on a recent Fox TV show has called Oprah "the most dangerous woman in the world."
Ms. Winfrey apparently was raised as a Christian but became disenchanted when she heard her pastor declare that the God of the Bible was a jealous God. Johnson quoted Winfrey as saying to her TV audience, “And something about that didn't feel right in my spirit because I believe that God is love and that God is in all things. And, so, that's when the search for something more than doctrine started to stir within me." She sought enlightenment and apparently found it in the New Age Movement.
Author Warren Smith, on the other hand, speaks with some knowledge and authority; he came out of that same new age movement and became a true Christian, a follower of the one true God.
THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT
According to the Jeremiah (not Wright!) Project website, “New Age is not new ... it is a modern revival of ancient religious traditions, along with a potpourri of influences: Eastern mysticism, modern philosophy and psychology, science and science fiction, and the counterculture of the 50s and 60s.”
The Jeremiah Project website goes on to list and to explain the seven major teaching of the New Age which include:
1. Jesus was not and is not the only Christ, nor is he God.
2. "God" is impersonal, cosmic, a God of energy forces.
3. Man is himself God, for he consists of and is the creator of "the forces." Man already exercises the powers inherent in his divinity and needs only to awaken to this fact.
4. Man should seek and accept spiritual instruction and direction directly from the spirit world.
5. All religions and religious teachings lead to the same goal. All are equally of merit.
6. The "ancient wisdom" of Babylon, Egypt and Greece - not the Bible - is the basis of all truth.
7. Sin and evil do not exist. Peace and love are the ultimate realities.
Adherents to the New Age Movement such as Oprah Winfrey, Al Gore, and other high profile people influence the masses. Oprah has embraced the teaching of new age guru Marianne Williamson. In fact, Oprah has Williamson daily teaching A Course of Miracles on Oprah’s XM satellite radio channel.
Warren Smith points out that the false teachings of A Course in Miracles should be obvious to any Christian. Smith stated on a recent AFA Report radio show, "Here are some of the lessons: Lesson 29, 'God is in everything I see.' Lesson 186, 'The salvation of the world depends on me.' 253, 'My self is the ruler of the universe.' 337, 'My sinless-ness protects me from all harm,'" Smith said, quoting from the lessons. "This is the Bible upside-down."
Smith also criticized Oprah for the selection of Eckhart Tolle's new age book A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose as her book of the month. Smith revealed that Oprah along with Tolle is teaching this class. Because of this, Smith said, “She is a false prophet and part of it herself." As just a side note, I was listening to Sean Hannity, the self-proclaimed conservative talk show host, and he said he was reading the Tolle book. He was unwittingly praising Oprah and her “spirituality”. He said he did not find anything contrary to his “Christianity.” The infection of this false thinking and philosophy even deceives some conservatives. Though I do have many questions about how truly conservative Hannity is. He seems more Republican than conservative or Christian.
Johnson concludes his article by quoting Internet evangelist Bill Keller. Keller appearing on Fox News Channel's Cavuto Report, echoed Smith's warnings, calling Oprah the queen of the new age gurus. "These new age teachings are really sucking in millions of people to these false philosophies, these false theologies, and they're literally leading people to Hell," Keller said. "Oprah, whether she knows it or not, is really being a conduit to lead people to Hell."

Below is a preview of Lesley Stahl’s interview of Algore this Sunday, March 30, at 7 p.m. ET/PT. (CBSNews.com)
Al Gore says that thinking climate change isn't manmade is like believing the moon landing was staged and that the earth is flat. Leslie Stahl asks some hard hitting questions. For more information and the rest of the 19,000 scientists who say global warming is a hoax, visit this website: http://www.oism.org/pproject/s33p1845.htm
Noel Sheppard on NewsBusters wrote, regarding the above video preview, “From the snippet in the preview provided by CBS, we're given the impression that Stahl is actually going to ask Gore some tough questions. Think she'll ask him:
Why he refuses to debate folks on the other side of this issue?
How much money he's already made selling this issue?
How much money he stands to make if G-8 nations including the U.S. adopt carbon cap-and-trade policies?
How tied he is directly to the primary carbon trading exchanges around the world?
How much his presentation in "An Inconvenient Truth" is nullified by the fact that Mann's Hockey Stick, a central component to manmade global warming theory, has been proven totally erroneous?
That a British judge found nine factual errors in Gore's movie?”
And he wants to be your President???
Even though this photo may have been doctored, it does demonstrate the inexperience of this relative political novice. Not only does he lack experience, but being a socialist he also stands on the wrong side of nearly every issue. He would be a very wrong and the very worst choice for America's highest office.
“But don’t worry it is not going to be nearly as sympathetic as the BBC's portrayal of Islamic terrorists.”

At first glance, Keyes seems to be staunch, right wing conservative dedicated to restoring God-given liberties which have long ago been lost. If you look on his website, he says that he is 100% pro-life, against gay marriage, against anti-disciminatory laws for gays, against “health-based” sex education, pro-school choice, pro-second amendment, pro-border security, pro-Fair Tax, anti-Federal Reserve, and anti-globalist.
But Keyes sometimes seems to speak out of both sides of his mouth.
On the one hand, he says that he is against affirmative action, quotas, and in general “preferential treatment for groups defined by race or sex”. But I have also heard him say that he is in favor of reparations.
While talking as an anti-globist on the one hand, he says, “The original purpose of the UN is quite clear, and I don't believe it's blamable…Should this pernicious tendency persist, the United States will have to withdraw from the United Nations…” and that the U.S. should “…firmly maintain our ongoing international responsibilities as a sovereign nation and world leader.” What does he mean should this “pernicious tendency”. Forming a One World Government isn’t “blamable”? Hasn’t the UN already violated our enough by forcing us to go along with corrupt oil-for-food programs and rules for fighting wars and environmental rules which are not enforced on other nations? How are we to be a “world leader”? By being the policeman of the world?
Alan Keyes says about the Iraq war, “…it was not what would have been my choice… [but] after we won the military victory in Iraq …what we should have done was to keep the security aspects to ourselves and turn all the political junk over to the UN.”
Keyes allegedly has CFR connections, and is a member of the supposedly conservative, but secretive Council for National Policy, which was addressed recently by John McCain.
Keyes criticized Hillary Clinton for “carpetbagging” to New York to run for senator. But then he hypocritically did the exact same thing by moving from Maryland to Illinois to run against Barack Obama (of all people) in the wake of the Ryan scandal.
Some people who have worked in his campaign have said that he just runs for office to make a living with no real intentions of winning.
Keyes is a Roman Catholic.
I guess I would vote Keyes if he were the only other candidate besides McCain, Hillary or Obama, and a murder-legalizing Libertarian.
But even if he really does run, I may not get that chance. He has already run as GOP candidate, which disqualifies him to run in states which have “sore loser” laws. This is another reason to hope that he does not get the CP nomination. My state (Ohio) has such laws, but I don’t know if this law applies in this case since Keyes’ name did not actually appear on the ballot here. But I read on Keyes’ website that he is mounting a campaign to change the law in Texas.

Jim Brown further reported that Dr. Tiller even “received a standing ovation at the Feminist Majority Foundation's annual Women's Leadership Conference held recently at the NEA's headquarters in Washington, DC. During his talk, Tiller attempted to justify his work by showing the approving audience pictures of babies he had aborted who had fetal abnormalities. The Feminist Majority Foundation then announced it was launching a new campaign designed to keep Tiller's Wichita, Kansas, abortion mill open."
Brown’s wrote, “Two employees with the group Students for Life of America secretly videotaped a conversation they had with Tiller after the event. . ."
Here is the Students for Life of America video.
The following is from a statement found on the Students for Life of America (SFLA) website, “… Dr. Tiller stated “If the baby is born alive, that is sloppy medicine” after addressing the crowd of about 100 feminists during a plenary session titled “Standing with our Sisters” on March 9, 2008.
The SFLA statement continued, “…Dr. Tiller … also admitted to performing abortions on children the day before the mother’s due date. Yet when questioned in a personal interview, Dr. Tiller failed to recognize the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, a federal bill signed into law in 2002 that protects born children from murder and illegalizes infanticide.
“When asked about the Act, Dr. Tiller also admitted, “Let’s say you have 15 or 16, you had one slip out with a heartbeat; that is not a viable fetus, but that is born alive or has a heartbeat. Then you have to take that non-viable fetus and rush it directly to the hospital against the woman’s wishes.” . . .
““What is most disturbing about this video is the point when Dr. Tiller shows footage of children he has aborted,” stated Kristan Hawkins, the Executive Director of Students for Life of America. “One had an extra arm: could not that child had survived and received corrective surgery? Was violently killing the child the only way to go? Pro-lifers are regularly condemned for displaying pictures of aborted babies, but here the pro-abortion crowd and the NEA are more than happy to showcase these graphic images...””
Is it no wonder more and more Christian teachers are leaving the NEA? Anyone who believes in Pro-Life should vehemently object to the NEA for hosting such a blantantly immoral and likely criminal such as Dr. "Tiller the Baby Killer."
The movie, Thicker than Water, is set in California, in Los Angeles and in the country around L.A. Melissa Gilbert is the star of the movie and does an excellent acting job. She plays a well-to-do attorney, Natalie Jones. Shortly after her father passes away, she is made aware of a strange photograph, which her father's faithful secretary gives her. The photo turns out to be a picture of her father’s first wife, of whom Natalie knew nothing about.
Much of the movie involves an evolving mystery which reveals that she has a step-sister who is the very opposite of the refined and polished L.A. attorney, Natalie. Natalie discovers other secrets, which makes the movie very interesting. One thing she discovers is that her father’s fist wife was a rodeo cowgirl who loved horse and part of her passion was to protect the wild horses on and near her property.
I would give this movie a **** out of *****. I happened to find the movie in one of those bargain bins at Wal-mart. Once in a while you could find a good movie in the $5 box. This was one of them. I would encourage you to pick on up is you see it. The dual theme of blood (for relatives) and water (for thirsty horses) run throughout the movie.

See first-hand evidence of Hillary's deceit can be seen by double-clicking on the video below. It is interesting how her handlers try to spin her out of this red handed lie.
It is really too bad the Republicans have such a pitiful candidate as Senator John Sidney "Amnesty" McCain to run against these two terribly inept pretenders to the presidency. And McCain makes three . . .
Dear Internal Revenue Service:
Enclosed you will find my 2008 tax return showing that I owe $3,407.00 in taxes.
Please note the attached article from the USA Today newspaper; dated 12 November, wherein you will see the Pentagon (Department of Defense) is paying $171.50 per hammer and NASA has paid $600.00 per toilet seat.
I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats (valued @ $2,400) and six (6) hammers valued @ $1,029), which I secured at Home Depot, bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00.
Please apply the overpayment of $22.00 to the "Presidential Election Fund," as noted on my return.
You can do this inexpensively by sending them one (1) 1.5" Phillips Head screw (see aforementioned article from USA Today newspaper detailing how H.U.D. pays $22.00 each for 1.5" Phillips Head Screws).
One screw is enclosed for your convenience. It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year.
A Satisfied Taxpayer
Washington, D.C., March 25, 2008—“A new anti-Gore ad produced by the Competitive Enterprise Institute has been censored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. The association claims copyright infringement over seven seconds of footage in the ad—footage which was taken from a documentary that the Association itself posted on YouTube. A “takedown” notice by the association led to the ad being yanked off YouTube over the weekend. CEI has since put the ad on its own website.
“CEI’s public service ad on the importance of affordable energy was unveiled on March 11. The ad documents the hypocrisy of jet-setting global warming alarmists who advise others to reduce their energy use and points out the vital need for more energy in the developing world. The ad, which aired in a dozen cities in the last two weeks, comes just before Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection launches a $100 million ad campaign for his global warming proposals. Electric co-ops receive massive government subsidies, and the association’s move appears motivated by global warming politics.
““NRECA’s claim of copyright infringement is without merit,” said Competitive Enterprise Institute General Counsel Sam Kazman. . .
“James V. DeLong, noted intellectual property scholar . . . stated of NRECA: “They’re trying to suppress important political speech, which lies at the core of Fair Use.”
“The suppressed ad, “Gore’s Light Bulbs,” is again available online.”

Senator John "Amnesty" McCain is really not very far behind these other two liberal Democrat candidates. He is a closet liberal. He does not have the best interest of America at heart either. Amnesty, McCain-Feingold, McCain-Kennedy No Child Left Behind and his gang of 14 compromise on judicial nominees disqualify him for the presidency as well.
Come November for whom do we vote? None of the three major candidate is acceptable. We need to see who will emerge as possible independents. If no acceptable independent come to light, then conservatives and Christians must focus their support and resources to help get many conservatives in the Congress to neutralize the bad affect that any of the three should they be elected.

The Crucifixion and the Resurrection
Happy Easter, everyone! He is risen! It is only in Jesus Christ and therefore, only in Christianity, that mankind can find true and everlasting hope. Jesus’ person, life, death and resurrection offer each human being hope for eternal life.
The observable universe is thirty billion light years in diameter and people wonder if life exists else where in the universe. In the entire universe there is only one place where anyone was ever made in the image of God. That is here on earth. Being made in the image of God makes people special, significant, and important to God. When mankind was separated from God, through Adam’s disobedience, it required that God restore or bring him back to Himself. This required the personal intervention of the Creator Himself, who came to earth and died for each and every person. Nowhere else in the entire universe, or in all the galaxies, did the Creator choose to die on a cross. However, not everyone believes this. The Koran teaches otherwise.
THE KORANIC ACCOUNT
He (Jesus) was but a mortal whom We favoured and made an example to the Israelites (1).
The Messiah, the son of Mary, was no more than an apostle: … (2).
Denied the truth and uttered a monstrous falsehood against Mary. They declared: ‘We have put to death the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, the apostle of God.’ They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they thought they did. Literally, (He was made to resemble another for them.)(3).
Those that disagree about him were in doubt concerning him; they knew nothing about him that was not sheer conjecture; they did not slay him for certain. God lifted him up to Him (4).
COMMENTARY ON THE KORAN
If Jesus was mortal, as the Koran states, then He would have had sin in Himself and, thus, would be incapable of dying for any one. Of course the Koran has no problem with that since it claims that Jesus was only an apostle. It further claims that Jesus neither was crucified, nor did He die. God brought Jesus up to Himself in heaven without Him ever dying. The people actually knew nothing about Him.
The Koran has no concept in it about substitutionary death, where one dies for another. Sins are never atoned for. The god of the Koran has no basis for which to forgive anyone. According to the Koran, Jesus is a mortal who never died.
The Koran totally disregards the eyewitness accounts of the disciples or the historic and well-researched account of Luke from eyewitnesses who were alive at the time and knew what happened. They were not confused.
THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT
We have not a high priest (Jesus) which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without sin (5).
The life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the alter to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul (6).
He was despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shears is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of he living: for the transgression of m people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when you shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors and he bare the sin of many , and made intercession for the transgressors (7).
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the in the wilderness , even so must the Son of man be lifted up:(8)
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father (9)
Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by that law he out to die, because he made himself the Son of God (10).
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots (11).
In the end of the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay (12).
Then saith he (Jesus) to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing (13). And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because you have seen me, you have believed : blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed (13).
COMMENTARY ON THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT
Jesus, as God and as man, is perfectly sinless. God provided blood upon the altar to make atonement for the all peoples’ sins. This is substitutionary death. The crucifixion was prophesied many years before the event took palace. Jesus said He had to be lifted up in the same way that the serpent in the wilderness was in the Old Testament. He had the power to lay down His life and the power to take it up again. No one took His life from him. The Jews wanted Jesus crucified because of His claim that He was the Son of God. As prophesied, Jesus was crucified. Furthermore, Jesus rose from the dead and the disciples along with Thomas examined Him. They knew who it was that was crucified and rose again from the dead.

Climate of Fear
Let me introduce this second of a two-part series on the theory of global warming with a YouTube video of a Glenn Beck interview with two of the conferees of the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, which issued the Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change at the end of its two day conference. See Part 1 of this 2-part series for more information and to read the actual Declaration.
The Beck interview sets the stage for a recent radio interview with another attendee of the conference, Myron Ebell, whose organization, the Competitive Enterprise Institute was one of the 25 sponsoring organization of the Conference. Below, I tried to capture the essence of a conversation that Mr. Ebell had with the host of the weekly Washington Watch Radio program, Tony Perkins.
THE ALARMISTS VERSUS THE SKEPTICS
Myron Ebell told Tony Perkins on the Family Research Center’s Washington Watch Radio Show recently that among conference participants were many scientists, economists, policy makers who do not agree that there is a consensus on global warming. In fact, there are two distinct camps on the question of global warming or climate control, the skeptics and their opponents the alarmists.
The global warming alarmists, with the aid of the main stream media, have declared that there is scientific consensus on global warming. This is similar to what academia and the scientific community say about another flawed theory, evolution. Ebell indicated that the alarmists were invited to the conference, but all declined. As Glenn Beck’s video shows, few reporters or journalists covered this important conference.
ACADEMIC & SCIENTIFIC FREEDOM SHACKLED
Ebell noted that there were a lot of notable experts on weather, climate change such as the founder of the Weather Channel, who now tries to expose the hoax that global warming is. A lot of the attendees were retired experts from their positions, who now can speak frankly on the subject of global warming without the fear of being attacked in their universities or their research organizations, or losing their jobs and/or government funding for global warming related research.
Ebell suggests that there is fear in the scientific community in challenging the global warming theory. He told Tony Perkins, “Everyone who has been involved in the debate at the scientific end knows that if you disagree with the alarmist consensus, and most scientists do to some degree, or another, you really ought to just be quiet about it.” The reason scientists are not free to speak the truth is that there is a huge federal gravy train of funding involved. There are billions of dollars every year going into global warming research. So the free expression of scientific thought, discussion and method is stifled. Tony Perkins pointed out that this was not good science. Ebell agreed and stated that science has become very bureaucratized. “The priorities are now set, not by scientists, but by the federal government,” summarized Ebell.
GLOBAL WARMING: LOUSY SCIENCE, GREAT POLITICS
Ebell indicated that the way Congress and the Administration work, the way bureaucracy works is what gets funded is what is has captured the public’s attention. He gave the example of the researcher who prepares a grant indicating that he is researching a connection to cancer; his chances of getting it are great because the public are concerned about cancer. Global warming has been built up into a source of funding. Global warming has ceased to be a scientific issue and has become politicized.
THE TRUTH ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
The theory or notion that global warming or climate change is caused primarily by man is false. Myron Ebell and other global warming skeptics contend that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant. CO2 is a natural occurring trace gas that we add to the atmosphere when we burn coal, oil or natural gas. We are adding a naturally occurring trace gas, which used to be in the atmosphere, but is now stored up in the ground in hydra-carbon fuels.
Ebell agrees that CO2 is a green house gas, and when added to the atmosphere, it may add a SLIGHT warming effect. However, global warming alarmists say it will have a BIG warming effect.
Ebell indicated that plants need CO2 for photosynthesis in order to turn sunlight into food that we can eat. CO2 is necessary for maintaining life on earth. He also noted that CO2 levels in past eras have been a lot higher than they are today, but someone life on earth seemed to survive just fine.
NO IMMINENT CATASTROPHE
Myron Ebell and the conferees of the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change concluded in their Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change held “that there is no convincing evidence that CO2 emissions from modern industrial activity has in the past, is now, or will in the future cause catastrophic climate change.” Ebell pointed out that we human beings affect the climate in a number of ways including adding CO2 to the environment by burning fossil fuels, changing land use from forest to farm and vice versa, build asphalt highways, etc.
Even though man has had impacted climate throughout history, Ebell declared, “But, in terms of catastrophic, I think there is NO convincing evidence that what modern industrial civilizations do in burring coal, oil or natural gas is going cause anything remotely resembling a catastrophe.” Ebell goes on to say that man by his very presence will change the environment. He concludes that if you want to impact the climate you have to eliminate man.
THE HIDDEN AGENDA
The fact that man is seen as the primary cause of global warming or climate change causes many to be so concerned about the global warming agenda or movement. People need to explore the issue more in depth to see what is really behind the purveyors of the global warming hoax.
Tony Perkins conjectured that following immediately in the footsteps of absolute surrendering unilaterally to the theory that man is the primary cause of global warming and climate change is population control. People are perceived as the problem and not part of the solution. Mankind is viewed in extremely negative terms.
Ebell summarizes it this way, “The first step in this debate is that we have got to limit our use of burning coal, oil and natural gas.” Next, he says we will have to do with a lot less energy resources, “We are going to have to live more like people in poor (and) developing countries.” “The next thing which you now see coming out of radical environmentalism as part of the grant-coalition supporting global warming alarmism is POPULATION CONTROL and they are very clear about it. There are way too many people on earth and we have got to radically reduce the number of people.”
The 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, despite being well represented and attended, but with little media coverage offers hope for America. There are still people seeking and standing for truth and if you look deep enough you can find it. Read the Manhattan Declaration and don’t fall for the lies, the hype and the outright deceit that man is the prime cause of global warming and climate change. Refuse to accept that there is a catastrophe looming if we don’t reject our free market capitalism and independence as a nation. Reject the notion that there are too man people on the earth who just exacerbate the problem, not offer solutions other than the politically correct and socialist global warming alarmist prescription.

Three Vision-Challenged "Leaders"
Senators Hillary Diane Rodham-Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama, and John Sidney "Amnesy" McCain were all on a boat. the boat sank. who got saved?????????
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER
AMERICA ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
After an intense 2-day conference with 100 presentations one of the chief results of the conference was the following declaration. I have added bold lettering for emphasis. If you don’t read anything else read the words in bold to garner the gist of the insightful declaration. Tomorrow in part 2 I will make some additional comments.
Global warming is not a global crisis
We, the scientists and researchers in climate and related fields, economists, policymakers, and business leaders, assembled at Times Square, New York City, participating in the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change,
Resolving that scientific questions should be evaluated solely by the scientific method;
Affirming that global climate has always changed and always will, independent of the actions of humans, and that carbon dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant but rather a necessity for all life;
Recognising that the causes and extent of recently observed climatic change are the subject of intense debates in the climate science community and that oft-repeated assertions of a supposed consensus among climate experts are false;
THAT THERE IS NO CONVINCING EVIDENCE THAT CO2 EMISSIONS FROM MODERN INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY HAS IN THE PAST, IS NOW, OR WILL IN THE FUTURE CAUSE CATASTROPHIC CLIMATE CHANGE.
That attempts by governments to inflict taxes and costly regulations on industry and individual citizens with the aim of reducing emissions of CO2 will pointlessly curtail the prosperity of the West and progress of developing nations without affecting climate.
That adaptation as needed is massively more cost-effective than any attempted mitigation and that a focus on such mitigation will divert the attention and resources of governments away from addressing the real problems of their peoples.
That human-caused climate change is not a global crisis.
Now, therefore, we recommend – That world leaders reject the views expressed by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as well as popular, but misguided works such as An Inconvenient Truth.
That all taxes, regulations, and other interventions intended to reduce emissions of CO2 be abandoned forthwith.
Agreed at New York, 4 March 2008. [End of Declaration]

“A Catholic bishop has proposed making harming the environment an official “sin”.
“No word, however, on how the bishop feels about people lying about the environment for money, fame, power.”
- - - NewsBusted, Episode 150
HARMING THE ENVIRONMENT IS ONLY ONE OF MANY SINS
Yes, deliberately wasting resources or harming the environment is wrong. It is sin, as are adultery, fornication, homosexuality, theft, murder, lying, assault, making, selling or viewing pornography, prostitution, and the list goes on and on . . .
Wherever there is a human being, there you will find a variety of sin. Man is imperfect. Only God is perfect!. For any so-called clergy to single out "harming the environment" is to overlook many more detestable sins such as abortion, which is taking the life (killing) of developing human beings. That is where true Christians and their preachers should pour their effort. The "religious" should expose rather than promote the false prophets such as Algore.

This is the second of a series of posts in which I will examine third party and independent candidates who I might possibly vote for. Last week, I wrote a piece on Chuck Baldwin, who is vying for the nomination to the Constitution Party. This week I will write about the positions of Michael Jingozian, who is trying for the top spot on the Libertarian Party ticket. I decided that I can’t vote for Mr. Jingozian because I later discovered his apparent position on a particular issue indicated below. I was only going to write about candidates who I might vote for in this series, but since I had already wrote most of this article, I decided to go ahead and post it.
Jingozian spouts some of the usual LP rhetoric. Get the government out of our private lives. Legalize marijuana and prostitution. Stop prosecuting victimless crimes. Get rid of the Patriot Act. Balance the budget by getting rid of corporate subsides, the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Education, and the Energy Department. End censorship and dishonesty in the media. (Good luck on that one.)
The LP opposes the sanctity of life for the unborn and I would assume the Mr. Jingozian does not deviate from the party because he says he would, “Ensure Reproductive Rights of Women.” (What a polite way of saying that you are bigoted against the unborn!) This is why I definitely cannot support him if he becomes the LP nominee. I am not going to vote for a candidate just because he is a novel candidate. Like most of the other LPs, Jingozian invites Ron Paul supporters to join him, but he just doesn’t have the same moral fiber or intelligence as RP.
Jingozian claims that there are already plans in the works for inserting microchips into Driver’s Licenses which would allow the government to track your location and would be susceptible to hackers. If this is so, I agree that it should be stopped.
This is the usual kind of LP stuff. What might surprise you about Michael is that, though he has been a member of the LP since 1980, his name has also appeared on lists of 2008 Green Party candidates and even mentions the GP on his campaign leaflet. Another reason why I would be reluctant to vote for him is that this is a probable indication that he has overbearing environmentalist leanings.
Jingozian is calling on Congress to prosecute the Bush Administration for War Crimes. If you think that President Bush and Dick Cheney should be impeached for these crimes and also for violating our civil liberties, consider signing a petition. You can find several on the internet. I found this one put out by the “Aggressive Progressives” (they have nothing to do with Jingozian). This is interesting because their objections to Bush are that he is being too aggressive and his policies are in violation of longstanding law (which is progressivism). I wrote some additional reasons for impeachment here, and you can write them into the petition to be included in the letter that will be sent to your congressman and senators.
Here is a link to a page that has Jingozian’s videos on it. Here is his official website.

Vince Papale is an ordinary guy in many ways; he is 30 years old, a part-time substitute teacher, and bartender. He is blessed with the ability to run fast (clocked at 4.5). In the movie we see him playing football with the guys in his Philadelphia neighborhood. He was an accomplished athlete in high school but never played football at the college level.
Then one day the new coach,. Dick Vermeil, fresh from big college football fame, takes a job with the low-down Philadelphia Eagles NFL team. He has the task of restoring their pride and some of their past glory. He gets an idea to hold an open tryout in the summer preceding his first season. This is part publicity stunt and part trying to discover a player against great odds.
Well, Vince decides to try out and to everyone’s amazement, even his own, he makes the team and the drama intensifies. The movie is part Rocky and part Rudy.
It is a story of love of the game, persistence and overcoming all obstacles. I highly recommend the movie and give it a rating of ****1/2 out of *****. Buy or rent it. It is worth your time, especially if you enjoy sports. It is a well made, good Disney movie. The slam, bang football action near the end of the movie is very realistic.
Journalist Bill Wilson writes in the 3/19/08 edition of the Daily Grind, an e-newsletter of Americans for Limited Government (ALG) , “In the past week, the U.S. has learned to some horror that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) had attended a church which promoted racist views. But it is with equal horror that he has knelt at the altar of Big Government, and worshipped Big Spending . . .
ALG Perspective: Obama’s church and its hateful message should be a cause for concern among voters, but his proposals for Colossal Government should truly alarm us as well. Americans ought to watch out for their wallets and pocketbooks when they vote in November, and know that if the next president is Obama, at the Church of Big Government, the ushers come courtesy of the IRS.”
OBAMA HIDES HIS FAITH UNDER HIS ROBE OF RHETORIC
The Illinois Senator and want-a-be President until recently has concealed his true beliefs behind is accomplished oratory. However, he is beginning to reveal his heart. He wrote an open letter (see my recent 3-part series) to his cadre of non-heterosexuals constituents promising them his undying loyalty and support. For the past twenty years he has sat under the instruction of a vehement racist, Afro-Centric, America hating “Reverend.” In addition he has spent his few years in the Senate spending money.
On the campaign trail Barack and Hillary try to out abortion-shine and out homosexual-shine one another. This all really foreshadows some real trouble for America if either Barack Hussein Obama or Hillary Diane Rodham-Clinton gains the ultimate power of the Presidency and if Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid hold on to their jobs this fall.

“Newsbusted has uncovered a major piece of information in the Eliot Spitzer story that has been overlooked by the Associated Press, the BBC, NBC, the LA Times and the USA Today.
“He’s a DEMOCRAT.”
- - - NewsBusted, Episode 149
IS THERE MEDIA BIAS?
Seemingly inconsequential in the mainstream media coverage of the Elioit Spitzer story is the fact that Governor Spitzer had a "D" not signifying dumb, although he may have been that as well, but denoting a card-carrying member of the Democrat Party. Conversely, if a Republican made similar news the "R" standing for Republican would be overtly and repeatedly emphasised.
Unfortunately, there is double standard, a preferred political agenda, and great bias on the part of the mainstream media, This hiding or ignoring of pertinent facts, just supports that conclusion. This disservice on the part of the MSM is as much or more of a disservice to the public and to traditional American values, as what lead to Governor Spitzer's downfall.

The following is basically my answer to the person making the comment above.
If life does not begin at conception, please tell me when life does begin. Does it begin at the start of the third trimester? Does it begin at birth? Does it begin 1 week after birth? Does it begin at age 7? Does it begin when some ‘all-knowing’ jurist or physician says it does? Does it begin when an anti-American Civil 'Liberties' Union (ACLU) attorney says it does?
The development of human life begins at conception. Any deliberate extinguishing of life from the point of conception onward is wrong, it is immoral, it is unethical, and it is the taking of a human life.
In 1973 the United States Supreme Court overstepped its bounds and unlawfully ‘legalized’ the murder of millions of babies. Supposedly they, like you, apparently could not tell when life began. The technology or scientific advancement was such at the time that they could not tell when life began. Or maybe they just faked stupidity.
Just look at a sonogram today and watch the movement of the baby in the womb. The baby is not a mere appendage of the mother. He or she is a separate, unique person. He or she has a developing brain, he or she has its own hands, feet, he or she has a heartbeat, he or she feels pain. Abortion stops a beating heart.
Abortion is wrong in the same way that slavery was wrong in America 150 years ago. Abortion is wrong in the same way slavery is wrong in Sudan. It took the Civil War to end slavery. What will it take to end the deprivation of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the pre-born baby in America? Abortion is not a mere political issue. It is not a Republican issue. It is not only a conservative issue. It is a moral issue. It transcends politics.
I would like somebody, anybody, to answer definitively when life does begin, if not at conception.

The Only Begotten Son of God
God Begat a Son
“Begat” is such an important word that I want to define it. One applicable definition of the word “begat” as found in Dictionary.net is, “To procreate, as a father or sire; to generate; -- commonly said of the father.”
Although the Koran states that God did not beget a son, still, in a round about way the Koran does claim that God begat a son. Consider the Koranic and Scriptural accounts.
THE KORANIC ACCOUNT
God forbid that He should have a son (1).
Never has God begotten a son, nor is there any other god besides Him (2).
Unbelievers are those that say, God is the Messiah, the son of Mary (3).
We have exalted some prophets above others. To David we gave the Psalms (4).
COMMENTARY ON THE KORAN
The Koran clearly states that God did not beget a Son. However, the Koran claims that the ones who directed Muhammad in writing the Koran also directed King David in writing the Psalms. David writes of God having a Son. The Messiah is Hebrew for anointed one and Christ is Greek for anointed one. The Koran is saying that the Anointed One is not God.
THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT
Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.’ He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: The Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my King upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: The Lord hath said unto me. Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in peaces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him (5).
The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool (6).
While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, Saying, what think ye of Christ (Messiah)? Whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in the spirit call him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son (7).
COMMENTARY ON THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT
In Psalms chapter two it is stated that the kings and rulers of the earth have deliberated among themselves against the Lord who is God the Father and against His Anointed who is God the Son. These people want to break away from the moral restraints which God has on humanity. God the Father laughs at them and distresses them in His anger. He has chosen the Lord Jesus Christ to be His King in Zion. He also decreed that God the Son was His Son and this day was begotten of Him. God the Father offers God the Son the heathen for his inheritance. The Son will break the heathen with a rod of iron and dash them to pieces like a clay jar. For this reason the kings and judges of the earth should serve God the Father with fear and praise Him with trembling. They need to develop a right relationship with Jesus lest they experience His wrath. Those who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ are blessed.
In Psalm 110:1 David writes that, “The Lord said to my Lord.” The Lord is God the Father and my Lord is God the Son. David is identifying God the Son as his Lord. This is the Lord Jesus Christ before He was born. We read that God the Father will make the enemies of Jesus His footstool. Christians are the body of Christ on earth so the enemies of Christ will be under the Christians as well.
In Matthew 22:41-46 Jesus asks the Pharisees whose son the Christ would be. Correctly, they said the son of David. Jesus points out that David called Him “Lord” referring to what David said in Psalm 110:1. The Christ then is the One David identified as my Lord. The question then is, “If Christ is the son of David how is it that He is his Lord?”
My question is, “How can those who directed the writing of the Koran truthfully claim that Jesus is not God the Son and at the same time claim to have written the book of Psalms, which claims that Jesus is God the Son?
To receive eternal life from God you must believe that He sent His only begotten Son to represent you before God on the cross receiving the wrath of God against Himself for your sins. Jesus lived a sinless life and took all human sin in Himself and shed His blood for each of us. God paid for the right to forgive you of your sins. You need to believe and repent of your sins. A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ forgive me of my sin and come into my heart.”
