Obama says white cop is "stupid" / Why "Obama Care" is dead / Imam calls on Obama to declare Jews responsible for 9-11 / Stimulus money for this? / The GOP, Mike Pence and Planned Parenthood / GOP leader: "They want to kill us all" / Islam in California Public schools / Who really was Walter Cronkite? / More churches bombed in Iraq / Christian churches desecrated in Cyprus

OBAMA SAYS THE WHITE COP IS STUPID -Can you just imagine the outrage if a black cop had arrested a white man in his home, and President George W. Bush, without checking the facts of the case, had called the black cop "stupid?" For weeks the mainstream media would have displayed screaming headlines calling Bush a racist. However, that is exactly what Barack Obama did on national TV. Without knowing any details, he sided with a black man who had been arrested by a white cop and called the white cop "stupid." This pretty much shows the racial bias of Obama. He sees everything through color and gender filters. "This post has to be filled by a woman and this post needs to be filled by a Hispanic," is now the thinking behind White House appointments. There is no such thing as searching for the best person for the job in the Obama Administration. Individuals such as Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor are picked not for qualifications, but because of race and gender. Bishop Jackson, a black graduate of Harvard had a different take on Obama's comments ... Read here

WHY OBAMA CARE IS DEAD FOR NOW - The White House political machine is run by Rahm Israel Emanuel, who is Obama's Chief of Staff. His plan was to "flood" the Congress with Obama's full agenda all at once. He believed that hitting with the Stimulus, Cap and Trade, Health "reform," and gay issues all at once would overwhelm the Republicans and there would be instant victory. It didn't work. So much change so fast and without deliberation, scared the general public, particularly Independent voters, so much that the plan backfired. Now, virtually all of Obama's agenda is dead in the water. Although "Cap and Trade" passed the House, it is dead in the Senate. Meanwhile Senator Harry Reid has announced that he can't move forward with the "Health Reform." In the House, many of Obama's grand plans are stuck in committee with even Democrats afraid to vote for them because of the outcry from constituents back home. Meanwhile Obama is sinking in the polls. Rasmussen has his "strongly approve rating at 30% and his "strongly disapprove rating at 38%. See poll

IMAM CALLS ON "PRESIDENT HUSSEIN" TO SAY JEWS RESPONSIBLE FOR 9-11 -This is not something off the wall ... this is a major imam in an Islamic nation who refers to Obama as President Hussein. He insists that "President Hussein" examine the documents of 9-11, where the imam says there is proof it was a Jewish conspiracy. No aircraft were used, according to him, and the buildings were booby trapped. Sadly, most of the Islamic world believes this nonsense. See clip

STIMULUS MONEY AT WORK - The Department of Agriculture spent well over one million dollars of "stimulus" money to buy 760,000 pounds of ham. That breaks out to about $1.50 a pound. Ham can be bought retail at just about any supermarket in America for under $1.00, Locally in supermarkets it is usually at around 79 cents a pound. No, I don't know what the ham was used for, but I'll bet it wasn't shipped to GITMO. Anyway, the expenditure for ham is not as bad as it could be, when one considers that $541,199 went to install one traffic light. Sort of gives you an idea of why no jobs are being created with the "Stimulus" funds.

WHY DID GOP FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD? - Last week I reported that a powerful Republican leader, Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) had offered an amendment to the appropriations bill that funds the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS). The amendment offered by Rep. Pence would end the funding of Planned Parenthood of America. (See his floor speech) Immediately I received dozens of e-mails pointing out that although the Republicans controlled the House for 12 years, no effort was made during that time to defund Planned Parenthood. In fact, when the Republicans controlled the House, the Senate and the White House they continued to fund Planned Parenthood. Is the GOP talk about conservative social values all for show? If social conservatives help them win next November, will the Republicans go back to their old habits of giving Planned Parenthood and ACORN money every year? Maybe you should ask Congressman Pence Note: The amendment failed today.

AN EXCITED GOP? - In the last five days I have met with Minority Leader John Boehner twice. I have also met with GOP House Conference Chair Mike Pence and several other congressmen and Senators. I can honestly say that the depression that followed the election of Barack Obama last fall has been replaced by a "we can do it" attitude. I have not seen the social conservatives in Congress this mobilized in some time.

THEY WANT TO KILL US ALL - At one meeting I attended this week, Minority Leader John Boehner said about the voters attending the tea parties held across the nation, "They want to kill us all." He continued that, "They think all of us up here need to get booted out. We need to convert that activism to kicking out just the Democrats." The GOP leadership may finally be getting the message. If they want back in office they are going to have to at least act like they are conservative.

CALIFORNIA SCHOOLS SAY ISLAM TREATS WOMEN EQUALLY TO MEN - And that is just he beginning of the nonsense. In California's public schools, more time is spent on Islam than on any other religion, and most of what is taught is Islamic propaganda written by "scholars" on the payroll of the Saudi government. Because of the concerns parents have expressed about what is being taught, the California public schools have put the teaching of Islam under review. Read more

WALTER CRONKITE A MAN WE COULD TRUST? - Most Americans alive today do not even remember newsman Walter Cronkite. But to read his obituary, you would think he was the only man in the news business that was even handed and universally trusted. However, I am old enough to remember him. Cronkite favored a one world government financed by global taxes. He said the US should renounce "some of its sovereignty." At a meeting of the far left People for the American Way, he denounced President Reagan. I am not the only one old enough to remember. Read the AIM column by Cliff Kincaid.

Destroyed Churches Cyprus DESECRATED CHRISTIAN CEMETERIES - On Thursday I attended a briefing on the continued destruction of Christian churches and other sites in Turkish occupied northern Cyprus. Because Turkey was a Cold War ally of the West, Europe and America have turned a blind eye to the ethnic cleansing of northern Cyprus since the 1974 invasion of the island republic by Turkey. Since the invasion, the Turkish military has allowed more than 40,000 ancient icons and frescoes to he stripped from Christian sites and sold in Europe and the United States. Buyers of the stolen items seem to have no guilt or remorse. At this week's briefing on this issue, the panel was moderated by former US Ambassador to Cyprus Donald Bandler. Read more

MORE CHURCHES BOMBED IN BAGHDAD - Since July 11th, at least seven churches have been bombed in Baghdad and at least 4 Christians killed and more than 30 injured. CNN reports six churches and my sources report as many as twelve. Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia has written a strong letter to Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki concerning the lack of protection of Christians in Iraq. See Rep. Wolf letter
