RESTORE THE FOUNDATION FRIDAYS – Nathan Hale – (1755-1776)


Nathan Hale was born on the 6th day of June, 1755 in the town of Coventry, Connecticut. He was born to Richard Hale who had moved to Coventry from Newbury Mass. In 1748. His Mother’s name was Elizabeth Strong. Richard and Elizabeth had twelve children of which Nathan was sixth among them. Nathan’s father was a successful farmer and he was able to provide very good educations for all his children. He attended Yale University with his bother Enoch. He enrolled at the age of fourteen and graduated at the age of eighteen. There is record that upon commencement day Nathan took what was called a pert, and it is recorded that he graduated in the top thirteen of his class. It appears that Nathan was going to become a Christian minister upon leaving college like his brother Enoch did but, as it was with most young men he became a teacher. In 1774 he accepted an appointment at the Union Grammar School which was a public school in the town of New London, Connecticut. The school was paid for by the men of the town to prepare their children for higher learning. In a time when most women were taught at home, or not taught at all, Nathan devoted the hours from five to seven in the morning to teaching no less than twenty young women at a time. Then at seven a.m. he would begin teaching the young men for the rest of the day.

He was a devoted militia member. When word of Lexington and Concord made it to New London in 1775, there was a town meeting held. At this town meeting it is said that a Nathan said of the British attack, “Let us march immediately” and he then said, “and never lay down our arms until we obtain our independence”. It is said that this was one of the first times the word ‘Independence’ was used to describe the struggle between the Colonists and the British. He became a Captain in the Continental Army, and a spy for the cause of liberty.

In September, 1776, the British occupied New York city. Nathan was deep behind enemy lines when he was captured by the British. His personal effects were searched, they included a sketch book of drawings that Hale had made of enemy fortifications and other Continental documents, upon the discovery of these he gave his name and rank in the American Army.  He was arrested as a spy, sentenced with no trial by General Howe to be hung on the morning after his capture. When his execution neared, he asked for a clergyman to attend to him, this request was met with a most egregious no. After being turned down by Howe for the attention of a clergyman, Nathan asked that he might have a Holy Bible, this request was met with the same answer. So, as Hale sat alone waiting to die he only found mercy in an officer that asked that Nathan be left in his custody. The officer that had custody of Nathan provided him paper and pen so he might write a letter to his mother and a military officer brother. When the time came, 11:00 am on September 22nd, 1776, it is said of an eyewitness that Nathan Hale walked solemnly to the noose, turned to the men attending his execution and said his famous words, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country”! This from a young man of twenty-one years of age, what courage this man possessed, even in the face of death, he was defiant, he knew his cause was just. A true patriot! The execution of Nathan Hale

It is reported that Sir William Howe made the following entry in his Orderly Book on the day of the execution: “A spy from the enemy by his own full confession, apprehended last night, was executed this day at 11 o’clock in front of the Artillery Park.”

Remember Nathan Hale this friday, he died for the freedom that we enjoy today.

The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, The original Bill of Rights

The Declaration of Independence

What is this document? Many see an animal skin with a series of words written on it. The words are almost completely faded now, they are, after all 236 years old. Some might say, this document was a letter of divorcement from England penned by the colonial American people. Some men may tell you, this document is a prayer to the Supreme Judge of the world. Some may say, this document was a suicide pact agreed to by 56 men. I submit to you, the declaration is all these things and so, so much more.

This document holds the hopes and dreams of the men whose hearts and minds conceived it and all who have ever existed, freedom. To understand the meaning of the declaration, one must learn of, and know the words of those who submitted it to the world so many years ago. The Declaration represents the American idea, and I would go so far as to say it is sacred. Next to the Holy Bible, the declaration is our most important document.

I am not alone in that estimation. Lets look to some famous Americans who stated what the declaration meant to them and our nation.

John Adams, why is the Declaration of Independence important today?

“I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward, forever more.
You will think me transported with enthusiasm but I am not. — I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure that it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. — Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the end is more than worth all the means…” (The signer of the Declaration and second president of the United States, writing to his wife, Abigail Adams, at the time of the ratification of the Declaration)
_______________________________________

John Quincy Adams, why is the Declaration of Independence important today?

“Why is it that next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [the Fourth of July]? Is it not, that in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission on Earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government on the first precepts of Christianity?” (The son of John Adams and sixth president of the United States gave this 4th of July speech in 1837)
________________________________________

Noah Webster, what is the purpose of the Declaration of Independence?

[O]ur fathers were men — they were heroes and patriots — they fought — they conquered — and they bequeathed to us a rich inheritance of liberty and empire which we have no right to surrender … Yes, my fellow freemen, we have a rich and growing empire — we have a lucrative commerce to protect — we have indefeasible [inalienable] rights — we have an excellent system of religion and of government — we have wives and children and sisters to defend; and God forbid that the soil of America should sustain the wretch who [lacks] the will or the spirit to defend them. Let us then rally round the independence and Constitution of our country, resolved to a man that we will never lose by folly, disunion, or cowardice what has been planned by wisdom and purchased with blood. (Noah Webster said these words in 1798, at a fourth of July celebration. He fought in the Revolutionary War, was a legislator and judge, and became “Schoolmaster to America”, publishing the first American Dictionary of the English Language in 1828)
________________________________________

Abraham Lincoln, why is the Declaration of Independence important today?

“I am filled with deep emotion at finding myself standing here, in this place, where were collected together the wisdom, the patriotism, the devotion to principle, from which sprang the institutions under which we live. You have kindly suggested to me that in my hands is the task of restoring peace to the present distracted condition of the country. I can say in return, Sir, that all the political sentiments I entertain have been drawn, so far as I have been able to draw them, from the sentiments which originated and were given to the world from this hall. I have never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration of Independence. I have often pondered over the dangers which were incurred by the men who assembled here, and framed and adopted that Declaration of Independence. I have pondered over the toils that were endured by the officers and soldiers of the army who achieved that Independence. I have often inquired of myself, what great principle or idea it was that kept this Confederacy so long together. It was not the mere matter of the separation of the Colonies from the motherland; but that sentiment in the Declaration of Independence which gave liberty, not alone to the people of this country, but, I hope, to the world, for all future time. It was that which gave promise that in due time the weight would be lifted from the shoulders of all men. This is a sentiment embodied in the Declaration of Independence. Now, my friends, can this country be saved upon that basis? If it can, I will consider myself one of the happiest men in the world, if I can help to save it. If it cannot be saved upon that principle, it will be truly awful. But if this country cannot be saved without giving up that principle, I was about to say I would rather be assassinated on this spot than surrender it.” (From a speech in Philadelphia, February 22, 1861)

President Lincoln, what was the purpose of the Declaration of Independence?

“These communities, by their representatives in old Independence Hall, said to the whole world of men: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ … [T]hey established these great self-evident truths that … their posterity might look up again to the Declaration of Independence and take courage to renew that battle which their fathers began, so that truth and justice and mercy and all the humane and Christian virtues might not be extinguished from the land … Now, my countrymen, if you have been taught doctrines conflicting with the great landmarks of the Declaration of Independence … let me entreat you to come back … [C]ome back to the truths that are in the Declaration of Independence.” (President Lincoln presented this appeal in 1858 to a crowd in Lewiston, Illinois)
________________________________________

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, what was the purpose of the Declaration of Independence?

“Fellow Americans, we venerate more widely than any other document, except only the Bible, the American Declaration of Independence. That declaration was more than a call to national action. It is a voice of conscience establishing clear, enduring values applicable to the lives of all men. It stands enshrined today as a charter of human liberty and dignity. Until these things belong to every living person, their pursuit is an unfinished business to occupy our children and generations to follow them. In this spirit we stand firmly in defense of freedom. In this spirit we cooperate with our friends, and negotiate with those who oppose us. (from the text of the report by the President to the American people on his European trip, delivered September 10,1959)

________________________________________

President Ronald Reagan, why is the Declaration of Independence important today?

“The signing of the document that day in Independence Hall was miracle enough. Fifty-six men, a little band so unique—we have never seen their like since — pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Sixteen gave their lives, most gave their fortunes and all of them preserved their sacred honor. What manner of men were they? Certainly they were not an unwashed, revolutionary rebel, nor were they adventurers in a heroic mood. Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists, 11 were merchants and tradesmen, nine were farmers. They were men who would achieve security but valued freedom more.
And what price did they pay? John Hart was driven from the side of his desperately ill wife. After more than a year of living almost as an animal in the forest and in caves, he returned to find his wife had died and his children had vanished. He never saw them again, his property was destroyed and he died of a broken heart — but with no regret, only pride in the part he had played that day in Independence Hall. Carter Braxton of Virginia lost all his ships — they were sold to pay his debts. He died in rags. So it was with Ellery, Clymer, Hall, Walton, Gwinnett, Rutledge, Morris, Livingston, and Middleton. Nelson, learning that Cornwallis was using his home for a headquarters, personally begged Washington to fire on him and destroy his home — he died bankrupt. It has never been reported that any of these men ever expressed bitterness or renounced their action as not worth the price. Fifty-six rank-and-file, ordinary citizens had founded a nation that grew from sea to shining sea, five million farms, quiet villages, cities that never sleep—all done without an area re-development plan, urban renewal or a rural legal assistance program.
Now we are a nation of 211 million people with a pedigree that includes blood lines from every corner of the world. We have shed that American-melting-pot blood in every corner of the world, usually in defense of someone’s freedom. Those who remained of that remarkable band we call our Founding Fathers tied up some of the loose ends about a dozen years after the Revolution. It had been the first revolution in all man’s history that did not just exchange one set of rulers for another. This had been a philosophical revolution. (The future President at the first annual CPAC conference, January 25, 1974)

________________________________________

A summary word from President Ronald Reagan:

Let us ask that God’s light may illuminate the minds and hearts of our people and our leaders so that we may meet the challenges that lie before us with courage and wisdom and justice. In prayer, let us recall with confidence the promise of old that if we humble ourselves before God and pray and seek His face, He will surely hear and forgive and heal and bless our land.”

All Quotes are from 1776web.com

The pictures in the heading are of mine and my wife’s living room wall. The trinity of documents were a birthday present for me two years ago. These three documents hold a prestigious place in our home, because they hold a prestigious place in our heart. I use them as a reminder of the men who fought for my rights that are given to me starting in the Declaration, being upheld by the Constitution, and guaranteed to me by the Bill of Rights. There is not a day that goes by that I do not marvel a little at at least one of them in the morning before we leave for work.

I love the Declaration, I love the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and this great land! I stand with these men and will fight to preserve all, I reckon there are a great many who will stand now and lets hope forevermore. We are the remnant.

Glenn Beck’s Restoring Love – Dallas, Texas – July 28th 2012


Glenn Beck has recently announced that he has chosen a theme song for Restoring Love in Dallas TX on July 28th 2012. The song is named “Hold us together” by Matt Maher. It is an uplifting song with very poignant lyrics. My wife and I initially had signed up for tickets to this event, however the economy is too slow for us to be able to make it there. We had spot number 667 in line for pre-buy tickets. We were able to attend Restoring Honor in Washington D.C. on August 28th, 2010 (which happened to be our 3rd year anniversary since the day we met). Below are some pictures of that event.

RESTORE THE FOUNDATION FRIDAYS – John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg (1746-1807)


image

Peter Muhlenberg was born at Trappe, Pennsylvania, on October 1st. His fathers name was H.M. Muhlenberg, who was the founder of the Lutheran denomination in America. He and his two brothers were sent to Germany for their formal education. He entered the Lutheran ministry and had charge over three churches in America. Two in New Jersey, one at Bedminster and another at New Germantown. After 1772, he had charge over the church at Woodstock, Virginia. While a minister at Woodstock, in 1775, he raised the 8th Virginia (German) regiment. General of the Continental Army, George Washington, after asking Muhlenberg to raise the Virginia regiment, placed him at a rank of Colonel. In February of 1777 he was raised to the rank of Brigadier General. In September 1783 he was breveted to Major General. He took part in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth, and at Yorktown commanded the first brigade of light infantry.

After the war was over, Peter returned to Pennsylvania. He was a member of the Virginia convention of 1776, was Vice President of the supreme-executive council of Pennsylvania in 1787-1788, and was a representative in Congress in 1789-1791, in 1793-1795, and in 1799-1801. In 1801 he was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the United States Senate, but immediately resigned to become supervisor of revenue for the district of Pennsylvania. He became collector of the port of Philadelphia in 1803. He was a friend of Thomas Jefferson and of James Monroe.

Peter Muhlenberg was also a member of what the British called the Black Robe Regiment. This regiment was comprised of American clergy that preached independence and freedom from the tyranny of King George III. They were persecuted greatly by the British because of their outspoken criticism of the King. In fact, Christian colonists used to tell each other “no King, but King Jesus”! Some had their churches burned to the ground by the British.

Peters brother, Frederick Muhlenberg was a Lutheran minister also. He was against fighting the revolution. That is, until the British burned his church down, in front of him. He joined the Continental Army the next day. He was also the first and third speaker of the house. He died on his birthday in1807.

One of the greatest stories from the revolution comes by the way of Peter Muhlenberg, and a sermon at Woodstock. As Peter began to preach; he took his text from, Ecclesiasties 3:1-8; “3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” When he got to the last verse he said it with emphasis and then said “there is a time to pray, and a time to FIGHT!” As he said this phrase he simultaneously threw of his black clerical robe revealing his Continental Army Officers Uniform, with its decorations and in all it’s glory. As he walked to the back of the church, he opened the doors and the drummers were outside performing the drum roll, the call for volunteers. He stood at the door asking those who would fight, to come and enlist. 162 men turned to their wives and children, said their goodbyes and kissed them; then turned to meet the drummers outside and join.

Committing their lives to defend freedom!

These men are the spirit of the revolution, and they are not taught to children in schools anymore. Why? We have been separated from our national history. These men of God had an enormous amount of conviction and righteous indignation.

We need to desperately reconnect with our founders.

I really hope you have enjoyed learning about John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg. I am dedicating Fridays as a day to help Restore our Foundation by learning about a founder or an immensely important figure in our founding, once a week. Whether that individual was alive before the revolution; or who has since given us our distinct heritage as Americans. I will be writing about those who have been our allies around the world also. Eg. (Winston Churchill). Please help spread the word, that American history will be shared every Friday.

Lets bring some of these people who turned into “just another statue” to lif

Obama’s Sycophant, Paul Krugman


sycophant

(sic-o-fant) (NOUN)

A sycophant is a person who tries to gain attention by flattering wealthy or influential people.

A self-serving flatterer, a person who fawns over another.

An example of a sycophant is someone who agrees with everything his boss says and who brings his boss gifts once a month.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Paul Krugman, must have received his Nobel Prize the same way Obama did, by doing absolutely nothing of merit. I understand politics and political motivations, however, Krugmans latest statement is a little more over the top than usual. (Trying to cover Obama’s Tail on Solyndra and the like). The reason our nation is hurtling toward DEBT-MAGEDDON is Obama subscribes to this keynesian economic model that Krugman and so many other leftists follow. Simply put, keynesian economics calls for massive amounts of spending to jumpstart faltering job markets and the overall market. The theory is, if the economy slows down (recession = two or more quarters of negative growth in GDP) you spend more money to drive the economy back up, making the pie larger in a sense. The problem in the theory, among many, is in alignment with the words of Margaret Thatcher, she said, “the only problem with socialism is, eventually you run out of other people’s money”. We have not a dime to spend to bolster or boost our economy, in fact as I have written about many times in the past with unfunded liabilities and the national debt combined we are -70 to -100 Trillion dollars in debt. Our nations economic issues are due to people like Krugman speaking glowingly regarding this ideology. Krugman comes out and says “this is ridiculous, we’re talking like a billion dollars is a lot of money or something.” YES Paul! A billion dollars is still a lot of money! I can deny gravity all day long, but, if I deny it under the wrong circumstances, gravity will kill me. It’s like they live in an alternate universe where sound fiscal policy doesn’t even exist. We are well past the point of no return im afraid, concerning our debt problem. I would liken their spending to that of drunken sailors, but I don’t want to offend the sailors.  Our great great great grand children will still be paying on this millstone around our neck, if we are still a nation when their alive. No nation in the history of the world has ran up debt like we have and survived to tell about it. Europe is ready to shake apart and kill the Euro Zone and the currency. Almost every developed nation on the planet is running massive debts. There are a lot of markets already hinting that a sharp decline is in the near future. And the economic terrorist himself, George Soros, has now signaled that the Euro has 3 months tops before it collapses. Think of the ramifications of that for a moment.

Paul Krugman, history will judge you as an ignorant wretch who professed himself to be wise, while all along you were singing the propagandist song for Obama while he fiddled as America burned. May history forget that you were ever called my countryman.

‘Adolph Hitler’ Ordered to be Held In Custody In New Jersey


One day, you take your family to the grocery store to order a decorated birthday cake for your youngest son.  There’s just one problem, they refuse to decorate the cake for you.  Not because you don’t have the money for it.  Not because they ran out of icing or cake.  But, because they refuse to write your son’s name on the cake, his name, Adolph Hitler Campbell. After the story of this incident broke in the local news papers, child protective services showed up on the doorstep of the Campbell’s, ultimately, child services took all four of their children into custody. Three of their four children are named after Nazi figures or terminology. This happened in New Jersey in 2009.

Fast forward to present day. There was a hearing in Superior Court to decide if the children should be held in State custody or be returned to their parents. Superior Court Judge Robert Reed ruled that the children should continue to be detained in the states care. A decision Adolph’s father strongly disagreed with saying  it was based purely on the names of his children rather than the couple’s ability to serve as parents.

“These kids weren’t abused. Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse,” Campbell said. “I’m honest about who I am and what I am.” He further added “If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I’ll do it,” he said. The children are “more my heart and soul and everything than anything.”

The Campbell’s are reported to have separated. An interesting interconnected note is that the Nazi Party recently filed the paper work in Washington D.C. to have their own lobbyist to the Congress of the United States in April, 2012, and were permitted to do so.

Here is one thing to consider. In America we have a constitutional right to the freedom of association, no matter what the social astigmatism is. We are protected from persecution by the government for being associated with any political ideology. If someone wants to follow communist ideology, in America they are free to do so, even though I strongly disagree with their decision in that choice, I support their right to subscribe to communism. Because I support the U.S. Constitution. We have a right to free and open debate.

I do not like anything that promotes Nazism, I find their actions both past and present, to be detestable. However, I don’t support an over reaching all-powerful government bureaucracy whether Federal, State, or Local in nature.

Here is another point of view to ponder.

Muhammad is a very popular name in the world right now, and many young boys are being named Muhammad currently.

In AD 627, Muhammad committed an atrocity against the last remaining major tribe of Jews in Medina: the Qurayza. Muhammad beheaded or had beheaded 750 Jews, adults and prepubescent males, and gathered all the women together as slaves. Muhammad, also had taken to himself a wife, a young girl of the age of around 9. He was middle-aged at the time of their wedding. The Hadith chronicles the story of Muhammad marrying the 9 year old girl of his friend,the girl was named Aisha. The Southern Baptists had gotten into some hot water over referring to Muhammad as a “Demon Possessed Pedophile” in 2002.

If Muhammad hated the Jews, and killed them. And Adolph hated the Jews, and killed them. Why is it more politically correct to name children Muhammad than Adolph. Is it in our psyche as a nation to abhor the name Adolph, because his atrocities were more recent, and closer to the surface of our knowledge than that of Muhammad’s atrocities? I would say that is part of it. However, consider this point of view, or are we so afraid of being politically incorrect to tell the truth about both men, because Islam calls one of them a prophet? Are we to afraid to criticise one because he is a so-called “religious” figure? And, equally, are we so easy to criticise the other one because its socially acceptable to do so?

In America, does the government have the right to take children into custody, because of their name? Where no credible evidence of abuse can be determined beyond a reasonable doubt? Can they break up a family because of your decision to name your children what you seen fit?  Should the authorities be investigating Islamic families that are naming their boys Muhammad?  If the answer is yes, we are in a world of hurt.

Tea Party; More Dangerous than the Media Thought


**Story Update**

Dateline Texas: Tea party Republican Ted Cruz forces an election runoff between he and Dewhurst.

**Story Update**

Deb Fischer (R) candidate for US Senate wins over the establishment Republican in Nebraska!!
Another conservative win!

When an awkwardly tall and lanky man who was born in Kentucky and now lived in Illinois, attempted to run for public office for the first time, I bet no one gave him a lot of attention or even a second thought. I certainly bet no one thought that one day he would rise to the highest office in the land and that he would be an agent of change, for the betterment of our Union. The man of course, was Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President. The Republican party started as a smaller, grass-roots, third-party, as an anti-slavery party in 1854. This is where we are in our political climate. We are witnessing a revival of common sense politics in our nation, all I can say is, it’s about time!

When the Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) emerged on the scene, a lot of media types discounted them as right-wing crazies, it was largely dismissed as a bunch of angry white people, who were only protesting spending because president Obama was black. That’s right, the media automatically pulled the race card from the deck of tricks they have. They completely ignored the massive, unsustainable Federal spending that had swept in with Obama’s presidency. Then the media tried its very level best to paint the tea party as dangerous, home-grown terroristic, Timothy McVeigh types, who were seditious and anti-American. This only steeled over the resolve of the people who considered themselves part of the tea party movement, imagine, being called a sexual name and innuendo by the President of the United States because he disagreed with you and sound fiscal policy. Imagine being marginalized for something that our grandparents thought was normal, you don’t spend more than you have or make. Were giving away our national sovereignty by running deficits we can’t pay.

When the media raged at the Tea Party for being dangerous to the nation, what they really meant was, the Tea Party was dangerous to liberal progressives, and tax, spend, borrow, and tax again policies. However, a funny thing happened on the way to Washington D.C., the Tea Party hung up their Americana costumes and picked up their clip boards, telephones, and started organizing into an actual political action group and teaming up with other pro-freedom, low tax organizations such as FreedomWorks.org. As the Tea Party is gaining steam, the liberal media has had a sharp drop in following and tv ratings. You can really tell when the media is scared to death, they begin searching for stories they can spin into their self-serving narratives. I recently read a story on the Daily Caller that was titled “Tea party petering out in South Carolina?” Its premise was so obvious, try to beat up the Tea Party before some extremely important primary elections in Wisconsin, with Scott Walker (R), In Indiana, With Dick Lugar (R), and Richard Mourdock (R), and out in Utah with Orrin Hatch (R). Now, with Lugar voted out in his primary by 20 points, and Scott Walker (R) voted to stay in office, the media is beside itself. (By the way, Scott Walker didn’t need a single vote to win today, he was unopposed, but he received roughly 70,000 votes more than the two Democrats running against him combined. Wisconsin had a huge conservative voter turn out.) North Carolina passed amendment one, defining marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman and this also would be the only recognized marriage in NC. Now all eyes are on the primary in Utah, to see if Orrin Hatch can win his primary, he is challenged by Tea Party favorite, former Utah State Senator Dan Liljenquist. Needless to say, after todays conservative landslide, Obama’s really got to be wondering what his next political steps are. (A year ago the media said these things were impossible.) The so-called “war on women” he tried to spin as being a Republican problem, has back fired on him. Today he flip-flopped on the Gay marriage issue, his campaign is stinking of desperation. He was for it in ’96, then against it in ’08 and now he’s for it in ’12.

When your political opponents are grasping at straws, you know, that they know, they are in big trouble! Liberals are in a frenzy now, they are watching their religion, “Liberalism” take it on the chin, hard! One can only hope that the media keeps discounting the Tea Party and that the Occupy movement keeps crapping on cop cars and door steps. While their wasting their time begging for lattes’ and for electricity to charge their ipads, conservatives are sweeping into public office, and getting ready to turn this ship around.
