We should take notice when self-professed atheist billionaire and globalist profiteer, George Soros, is the quiet funder of a curious "Evangelical Immigration Table" campaign to promote yet another massive and mysterious piece of legislation in Congress. This time it is the "Gang of 8" Schumer-Rubio immigration bill (S. 744).
Through the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), a project of the Soros-funded National Immigration Forum (NIF), progressive activists such as Sojourners founder, Jim Wallis, are well-funded to lobby for the Gang of 8 legislation that would almost immediately legalize about 11 million immigrants first, with promises of better law enforcement later.
Another 20 million immigrants, mostly family members, are likely to follow within ten years. A $250,000 national radio campaign by the Table features several evangelical leaders reading from Matthew 25, "I was a stranger, and you welcomed me ..." more >>
The advent of 'social media' has been heralded as a new, unbiased forum where ideology, politics and opinions are able to compete on a level playing field. From talk radio to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace, these forums are generally assumed to reflect the true voice of their subscribers - untainted by the liberal bias of the mainstream media.
Unfortunately, this is changing.
I was recently stopped by Facebook for trying to post an article by Star Parker, entitled "Blacks Should Embrace NRA Gun Proposal." more >>
Last August, President Obama declared that the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons was a "red line." About four months later, Aljazeera released unconfirmed reports that a gas attack killed seven civilians in a rebel-held neighborhood of Homs. Last April, the UK, France, and Israel each claimed that there was evidence that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons in Aleppo, Homs, and/or Damascus. By April 25th, the U.S intelligence assessment was that the Assad regime had likely used sarin gas, but President Obama dodged his red line by announcing that a thorough investigation was still needed (as if the Syrian government would ever allow one). Meanwhile, reports from foreign intelligence agencies and journalists continued to corroborate the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime. So why did Obama's requirement of a thorough investigation to confirm the crossing of his red line suddenly vanish last Friday?
Viewed through the lens of domestic politics, Obama's Syria epiphany looks conveniently timed to deflect attention from an ever-swelling wave of scandals: Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, AP/Fox-gate, and now NSA-gate and State Department prostitution-gate. As the film "Wag The Dog" highlights, international crises are great at diverting attention from domestic scandals.
But from the perspective of the Syrian rebels, the timing and nature of U.S. military assistance may be viewed as either too little, too late, or a cynical attempt to ensure a perpetual stalemate. After all, the outgunned rebels have needed lethal weapons from the U.S. for over two years. Chemical weapons use by the Assad regime is old news. So what has changed? The Syrian regime recently defeated rebel forces at the crucial battle in Qusayr, a town providing a strategic supply conduit for rebel forces in Homs. After the military gains enabled by the robust battlefield support of Iran-backed Hezbollah, the Syrian regime is now preparing for a major offensive to retake Aleppo. With another crushing blow to a key rebel stronghold, the regime could ultimately prevail in the conflict, unless the U.S. provides just enough rebel support to restore the pre-Qusayr stalemate. more >>
To convince others of your ideas, Texas Governor Rick Perry told fellow conservatives on Saturday, you must be both humble and courageous.
"I've learned a little bit about humility, particularly on national television," Perry said to laughter from the audience at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's "Road to Majority 2013" conference.
Soros Supports Christie, A Revelation? George Soros is apparently now supporting the re-election campaign of Governor Chris Christie. When George Soros decides to invest, it means the object is profoundly liberal and holds great promise for the cause. That would be now Chris Christie.
Apparently, all Christie's former jibes at Obama were an act just to get the president's attention. Why, they were best buds all along. Christie even fooled Ann Coulter.
Included with the Soros trend of Christie support are University of California-Berkeley's Ken Rosen, Californian Democrat fund raiser John Doerr, Chicago's Tim and Alice Mullen (who also supported Rahm Emanuel's mayorial bid), FaceBook's Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Granoff, and Ken and Shoshana Dichter. more >>
If John Boehner started preaching the virtues of socialism tomorrow morning, the entire planet would turn capitalist by noon. Boehner is a walking, talking charisma vortex. When he's not speaking or crying, he has the look of a man about to apologize. And Mitch McConnell sounds like Foghorn Leghorn. They may be decent men, but Boehner and McConnell are the leaders of and chief communicators for the Republican Party. Why? Because the right has a seniority fetish. Conservatives are always looking to the next guy in line for leadership.
The left doesn't have this problem.
In 2006, the Vegas odds of Barack Obama winning the presidency were somewhere between the odds of the Cleveland Browns winning the Super Bowl and the odds of Pope Benedict converting to Wicca. Hillary was next in line and everyone knew it. She was a shoo-in. The Clintons were expecting the nomination to arrive by mail. Then Obama began to speak. And heads began to turn. That man could really talk. more >>
