    Jefferson County, Colo. Democrats have revoked 66-year-old Estelle Carson’s 2012 “Democrat of the Year” award, following her conviction on Thursday for stealing from a 71-year-old woman who suffers from both partial blindness and cerebral palsy. Carson was found guilty of felony identity theft and felony theft from an at-risk person for stealing checks from the woman to pay for cable, cellphone and Internet bills. -snip- Chris Kennedy, chairman of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, disregarded the [criminal investigation] warning. “After much consideration, my decision was that the award being presented by my organization and the alleged financial exploitation need to...

    The woman named “Democrat of The Year” this year by the Jefferson County Democratic Party has been convicted of felony theft by a Jefferson County jury for stealing from a developmentally disabled 71-year-old woman. -excerpt- Nearly as bothersome as the theft itself to Maxwell and other supporters of the victim, is the fact the Jefferson County Democratic Party was made aware of the ongoing criminal investigation and honored Carson anyway.

    The Democrat party has staked its position on abortion, firmly planting its feed in blood-soaked soil. Common ground is not, nor has ever really been, a genuine goal of the party. It proudly celebrates its embrace of an industry that kills over a million innocent unborn children every year and wounds countless women and men in the violent process. Liberal activists will parade around as gigantic vaginas, publicly recite explicit lines to pro-statutory rape “The Vagina Monologues”, wear t-shirts proclaiming “I Had An Abortion”, support partial-birth abortion, and stand with the abortion chain that refuses to report rape. But they’re...

    Local police in Arlington, Va., have opened a criminal investigation after a secretly recorded video showed the son of a Democratic congressman apparently advising someone who claimed to be looking for ways to commit voter fraud. In a brief statement, the Arlington County police department and attorney's office said they were "aware" of the video "allegedly depicting" Patrick Moran, son of Virginia Rep. Jim Moran, "assisting another to vote illegally." "The Arlington County Police Department has initiated a criminal investigation of this matter," the statement said.

    Democrat Congressman Jerry McNerney was elected to Congress in the Democrat wave year of 2006. Prior to serving in Congress, representing California's Central Valley, he was an engineer working in the energy field. He was also an aspiring novelist. His single work, "Terrorism and Fear: Enter the Third Level," was published in 1994 and paints a dystopian vision of nuclear war and its aftermath. At a critical point in the novel, one of the lead characters, a college student named Sandra, is brutally raped and murdered. But that isn't the most disturbing part.

    The son of a prominent Virginia congressman agreed to help an undercover reporter forge documents in what he thought was an illegal voting effort aimed at re-electing the president, a just-published video reveals. After raising legal and practical concerns, Patrick Moran, son of Virginia Democrat James Moran, encouraged the reporter to create phony utility bills that would allow others to cast multiple votes in the November 6 election. Supporters of stronger voter ID laws seized on the video as evidence of widespread corruption among liberal get-out-the-vote organizations. “What he’s doing is soliciting fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent ballots, and that’s...

(By the way, it was the Southern slave states that wanted blacks counted 100 percent for apportionment while northeasterners wanted them not to count at all. This was the compromise worked out.) History is repeating itself in Florida and Virginia – and, I’m sure other states to come. It’s not that Democrats don’t want to count black votes any more. In fact, they’d count them all twice if they could. Instead, mostly Democratic school officials in these states have...

White Catholics who identify themselves as politically conservative have consistently voted for Republican candidates in recent elections. And white...

Economists associated with the Fraser Institute and the Cato Institute have actually found a way to measure "economic freedom" and investigate what difference it makes in 141 countries around the world. This work has been in progress for several decades now and the evidence is stark. Economies that rely on private property, free markets and free trade, and avoid high taxes, regulation and inflation, grow more rapidly than...

    DETROIT—A pioneering sex researcher's son who was cited for masturbating in New York's Central Park earlier this year was arrested in a rural Michigan sting operation for allegedly exposing himself to two female undercover investigators. A completely nude William H. Masters III yelled for the attention of the two female kayakers on Saturday, then made obscene gestures from the bank of the Pinnebog River, Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson said. http
  • Secular Liberalism - The Democratic Lawless Ideology

    Liberalism - for the most part - rejects out right the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. The root and source of this rejection - of these crucial moral laws and realities - is their subjective hatred towards the Creator of the heavens and earth (Romans 1:18-32). This base ideology is expressed and manifested in their disdain and hostility towards the American blue print drawn up by our Founding Fathers, which was based on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. This ideology is on FULL parade this week at the Democratic Convention for all of America to...

    Of course the delegates didn’t want any mention of God in the platform, because their worldview, and thus the policies they espouse and support, is godless. This is a consistent pattern in today’s modern Democrat Party. They can’t get elected by showing everyone who they really are. Thus, it is imperative that they hide their true belief system and their agenda from mainstream America (with a great assist from the media), so they can gain and hold onto power. This is why the platform had to be changed – for political expediency only. This is why Obama and many other...

    Expectations are high leading up to the President Obama's acceptance speech in Charlotte, NC on Thursday evening, as they were last week in Tampa for Republican nominee Mitt Romney. With a campaign slogan like "Forward" you'd think, and hope, the Obama Administration has moved passed the blame game politics of the last four years, pointing the finger at the Bush Administration as the root of all of America's economic problems. "What you're going to hear is 'we have done everything we could to right the ship, to make sure that we are headed towards recovery. We may not be there...
  • Pro-Life Dems Are Like Stalker ex-Boyfriends

    Make no mistake, the meeting of pro-life Democrats was only near the Democrat National Convention and not at it. A group of pro-life Democrats gathered in a hotel near the convention the way that a teenage boy stalks the house of the girl who dumped him, with love unrequited. This year not a single pro-life Democrat was allowed to speak at the convention, a convention that adopted the most radical pro-abortion plank possible while at the same time expunging any mention of God. I think God is happy that at least they have stopped pretending. But the pro-lifers in the...

    Yes, this DNC video, played during the convention, said we all belong to the government. Out of the mouths of fools often comes what they really think.

    The forces that shape the Democrats. Moloch (abortion), Gaia (earth-worshippers), Dionysus (homosexual agenda, contraception, adultery, unbridled lust and fornication), Marx (communism), Stalin (totalitarian statism), Allah (Islamic terrorism), and Two-Face (lie about everything). The One True God is not welcome in the Democrat universe.

    No faith, no ideology, no religion, no political affiliation or Party is worth hanging onto or supporting if you won’t allow it to stand the scrutiny of logic, truth and reasoning—it IS as simple as that. If an individual is close-minded to even remotely considering opposing viewpoints or rebuttals to their faith or their politics, then you clearly understand the axiom, “Ignorance is bliss.” Because of so many sound reasons where the Party compliments—not contradicts—our Christian faith, this is exactly why my wife and I have chosen to be Republicans and not Democrats. Republican ideals stand the test of time,...
