Throughout modern history, those who sought to control and expand the reach of government often resorted to exploiting mankind's most dominant trait: an innate desire to survive and prosper. To that end, the people would be promised a utopia on earth -- a promise that could never be fulfilled. This is not only the most cynical of all political tactics, but also one whose proponents are interested only in self-aggrandizement and the accumulation of power. This strategy has three component parts: 1) promise the populace "fairness" and lifelong personal security; 2) create out of whole cloth villains who must be dispatched, as they are determined to make certain that there is no "fairness"; and 3) never fail to reassure the people that everything is under control.
In this much ballyhooed season of "vetting," please allow me to zero in anew on Barack Obama's Achilles heel -- namely, his willingness to take credit for a book that he did not write in any meaningful way. This would be the book on which his genius myth is founded: his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father . From early on, I have argued that terrorist emeritus Bill Ayers, a skilled writer and editor, is the primary craftsman behind Dreams . Thanks to the video interview of mailman Allen Hulton by WND's Jerome Corsi , we have a clearer picture of why Ayers would have invested so much time in this project and how he might have been reimbursed.
You know liberals are scared whenever they use the O-word -- "obsession" -- to smear a conservative's effectiveness in an important argument. So when the Los Angeles Times published an editorial yesterday by Tim Rutten called "Glenn Beck's Liberation Theology Obsession," I was quite intrigued. Since I spent a whole year studying James H. Cone's Black Liberation Theology in the context of Latin America's liberation theology developed within the Catholic Church, I was quite curious to see what an esteemed LA Times columnist had to say about Beck's so-called "obsession." After reading Tim Rutten's column, I must admit I was completely flummoxed. How could someone with such an impressive bio write such errant tripe and get paid big bucks for it?
What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest . What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering . What is his worldly God?
Liberation theology , [ 1 ] is a political movement in Catholic theology which interprets the teachings of Jesus Christ in relation to a liberation from unjust economic, political, or social conditions. It has been described by proponents as "an interpretation of Christian faith through the poor's suffering, their struggle and hope, and a critique of society and the Catholic faith and Christianity through the eyes of the poor", [ 2 ] and by detractors as Christianized Marxism . [ 3 ] Although liberation theology has grown into an international and inter-denominational movement, it began as a movement within the Catholic Church in Latin America in the 1950s–1960s.
On September 15, President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. At around 22:30, he incorporated part of the The Declaration of Independence, but removed any reference to the "Creator." Update: Here is a short version of the clip, with just the key minute: And for those concerned with context, here is a complete version of the remarks:
WND.com is reporting the records regarding Stanley Ann Durham (Obama’s Mama) from a Freedom of Information request are missing from the State Department despite their claim to have all passport records from 1925-to date on file. Barrack Obama is systematically erasing his parents and grandparents history. Just a few months ago the media was reporting that the FBI has destroyed Obama’s communist maternal grandfathers, Stanley Durham’s, FBI file.

At a time when Barack Obama is getting heat for stonewalling information about an alleged administration bribery scandal, a new poll shows more Americans than ever suspect the president is hiding information about his own background and want him to come clean. Questions about Obama’s eligibility to be president, exacerbated by his refusal to answer questions, release ordinary background documentation and his extraordinary legal maneuvers to keep his background hidden, have been on the radar of a number of top-level investigative reporters and news organizations since before his election.

In fact, during the course of shooting and editing “A Question of Eligibility,” the award-winning filmmaking team, including veterans of many controversial movie projects, made the unusual request to keep its identity secret for fear of retribution from the administration.

Politics Sir Paul McCartney’s cheap shot aimed at former President George W. Bush at a White House event on Wednesday has prompted House Minority Leader John Boehner to demand an apology from the Beatle. McCartney literally gushed over President Obama throughout his East Room concert. “Getting this prize would just be good enough, but getting it from this president…” McCartney said letting his praise trail off as if there were vast volumes left unsaid. The prize McCartney was given is the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song , a lifetime achievement award bestowed by the Library of Congress.
"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim." That was the claim of Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, as reported in the May 2010 issue of Israel Today . According to journalist Avi Lipkin , Gheit appeared on Nile TV's "Round Table Show" in January, on which he said that "he had had a one-on-one meeting with Obama who swore to him that he was a Moslem, the son of a Moslem father and step-son of Moslem step-father, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Moslems, and that he was loyal to the Moslem agenda." Obama allegedly said this in the context of reassuring Gheit that he would soon deal with Israel: He asked that the Moslem world show patience.
