In Honor of Sgt. LeRoy O. Webster and ALL the other soldiers who have fallen before him. Please remember to lower your flags to half staff on Saturday and say an extra prayer for the families of the fallen soldiers.
We come to You now with a special prayer for our nation
during this time of crisis. We know Father, You are always
in control. We ask Your blessings on this nation, our
military, and our leaders. Thank You Heavenly Father for
the freedoms You have given us, and help us to protect
those freedoms we take for granted. For the families of
those who have lost their lives, we ask the peace and
comfort only You can give. Your will be done
Father, not ours, as we have faith in You knowing what is
best. Thank You for hearing our prayer, in the name of our
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we pray.
AP ( Washington): A congressionally backed panel said Friday that religious freedoms were deteriorating in Russia, Turkey and four other nations that were added to a watch list of countries where people’s rights to worship as they please or not to worship at all are at risk…
Besides Russia and NATO-member Turkey, the commission added to the watch list Laos, Somalia, Tajikistan and Venezuela. They joined Afghanistan, Belarus, Cuba and Egypt, already on the list.
Countries are placed on the watch list or the more serious “countries of particular concern” list because their governments either discriminate against people for religious reasons or are unwilling or unable to stop religious violence by their citizens.
The commission used the report to ask the Obama administration at least to “give due consideration” whether to abide by a law that requires the ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom be a “principal adviser to the president and the secretary of state regarding matters affecting religious freedom.”
Not only has Herseth-Sandlin has lost all connection to SD Conservatives whom she is to be representing, but she has thrown out the Constitution so the statists can draft their own to further their morally corrupt agenda.
Not only is HR 1913 unconstitutional, it will allow pedophiles and other sexual predators to reign free under the guise of discrimination.
H.R. 1913(Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009) is not about stopping crime but is designed to give “actual or perceived” sexual preference or “gender identity” (which is still classified as a mental disorder) the same legal status as race. The DSM IVR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual used by psychologists and psychiatrists to diagnose mental disorders) lists more than 30 “sexual orientations” and “Gender Identity Disorders,” including pedophilia. The hate crimes bill does not limit “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” and, thus, includes all these disorders and fetishes. The use of “actual or perceived” includes those with disorders or deviant sexual preferences and those who do not have such disorders or fetishes, so long as it is alleged that the person charged allegedly “thought” the other person had such disorder or fetish…
Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented: “Sexual orientation and gender identity include pedophilia and every imaginable deviant fetish. Cross-dressers and pedophiles find refuge in this so-called hate crimes bill, while veterans and grandmas are left to fend for themselves. Obviously, this bill is not about the prevention of crime but is all about pushing a radical sexual anarchy. This bill will crush free speech and trample free exercise of religion.”
I am beside myself. The last call I made to Herseth-Sandlin’s office, I was told she was NOT for this legislation.
So Miss Stephanie..what changed? Conservative Christian South Dakotans would like to know what happened to your SD roots and your oath to uphold the Constitution to protect all South Dakotans, especially those that can not protect themselves aka our innocent, vulnerable children.
When dealing with radical politicians and their voting record, the 1st course of action is to follow the money…
Pharma and health product industry campaign contributions continue to rise, with donations to Sen. Barak Obama at $900,000 and contributions to Sen. John McCain about half that; combined with contributions to Sen. Hilary Clinton, that brings the Democratic contribution total to almost three times that of the Republican total:
After highlighting a new online ad campaign from AstraZeneca in which consumers are urged to choose their preferred “administration” for flu vaccine, Huckman provides some numbers about political campaign contributions.
“As of last Wednesday, the pharmaceuticals/health products industry has given more than $900,000 to Sen. Barack Obama. And Sen. John McCain has moved into third place with $442,000 in contributions,” he writes. “And all told, so far, the drug companies, which traditionally favor Republicans over Democrats, have given three times as much money to Sen. Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton combined than [they have] to the presumptive GOP nominee.”
And who is part of this? None other than NOVAVAX, the bio-tech firm who’s stock just doubled from this so called flu-pandemic:
Expect more fear mongering from the hill to promote their agenda and gain financial benefit to those that supported their campaign AKA “pay to play” Washington style. GE is bringing a whole new meaning into your “life” and it has nothing to do with elecronics.
TIC (teleprompter in chief) just announced the government is not in the auto business and that GMAC will fund future Chrysler products…in the same breath he announced that “we the people” will be funding GMAC in their efforts to fund this ponzie scheme because the UAW has already given to many concessions to ask them to give more.
How stupid does he really think we are? Does he really think he is fooling us?
Control of organised labor is a key component of the Obama administration’s power plan.
“I do not view the labor movement as part of the problem. To me, it’s part of the solution.”
Obama wants to unify the labor movement under a centralised socialist leadership, answerable to him. This will provide President Obama and the Democrats with money and armies of loyal foot soldiers for their battles with the Republicans, “disloyal” Dems and non compliant businesses.
It will also enable Obama to neutralise resistance to amnesty and citizenship for more than 10 million illegal workers curently in the US-which will almost certainly lock in millions of extra votes for Obama and the Democrats.
One organisation, American Rights at Work(ARW) has served as a key transmission belt from Obama to the labor movement. It is now looking increasingly like becoming Obama’s key control mechanism over the union movement.
According to Talking Union; David Bonior served in Congress for 26 years rising through the leadership to become the Democratic Caucus Whip. During his tenure in Congress, Bonior fought to raise the minimum wage, protect pensions, support unions, and extend unemployment benefits. He led the fight to oppose NAFTA in 1993. He worked to prevent war in Central America in the 1980s and again to prevent the Iraq War in 2002. After leaving Congress, Bonior co-founded American Rights at Work, a labor advocacy and research organization, which has made passage of the Employee Free Choice Act its major legislative priority. Bonior was recently appointed to the Obama economic team.
Bonior was toutedas a likely Obama Labor Secretary but withdrew his name from contention. Obama then delegated Bonior to broker a re-unification of the US labor movement, bringing the Change To Win grouping and the AFL-CIO back together under one banner.
The NYT’s David Greenhouse reported that, on January 7, the union presidents first met with Bonior, a member of Obama’s economic transition team…Bonior helped “arrange and oversee” the meeting.
The union presidents issued their joint call after the transition team for President-elect Barack Obama signaled that it would prefer dealing with a united movement, rather than a fractured one that often had two competing voices.
read entire articlehere. It brings light as to the labor secretary and other TIC appointees.
Today is the “Infamous” 100th day mark of the new administration, and the fact that today the House of Representatives will be voting on crucial “hate-crime/kill any speech that promotes morality” legislation the the new administration supports, I find myself wondering what kind of future our country has? What kind of precident are we setting for the generations to come?
During the 1940s, my family lived in North Philadelphia’s Richard Allen housing project. Many families didn’t lock doors until late at night, if ever. No one ever thought of installing bars on their windows. Hot, humid summer nights found many people sleeping outside on balconies or lawn chairs. Starting in the ’60s and ’70s, doing the same in some neighborhoods would have been tantamount to committing suicide. Keep in mind that the 1940s and ’50s were a time of gross racial discrimination, high black poverty and few opportunities compared to today. The fact that black neighborhoods were far more civilized at that time should give pause to the excuses of today that blames today’s pathology on poverty and discrimination.
Policemen and laws can never replace customs, traditions and moral values as a means for regulating human behavior. At best, the police and criminal justice system are the last desperate line of defense for a civilized society. Our increased reliance on laws to regulate behavior is a measure of how uncivilized we’ve become.

It’s a short, but to the point and hits the nail on the head as to where this country is going if we continue to let the pregressive statists ramrod their agenda down our throats while Christian Conservatives sit back thinking that prayer is the only answer.
Prayer is the 1st step, but God is not going to fix this himself. It is through us that his work is done. It’s time for ALL Christian Conservatives to get off the porch and get out into their communities and actively stand up against the progressive statists. They are going after our youth, and we must meet them head to head to insure that our youth and future generations are educated with the truth, not the propaganda that is tearing this great Constitutional Republic to shreads.
Case in point…Lt. Colonel Allen West, retired military who served in Iraq and Afghanistan calls the Obama administration a “Regime” that does not like this country and that they are trying to remake it into some kind of “Socialist Cesspool”. WOW…listen to the 5 min interview of this outstanding retired military officer. It’s fabulous, we need more like him running for office in 2010. We surely have a few here in SD like this that we can get behind, let’s go get’em, then let’s make sure to support ’em and get them elected into office.
I have been following the flu viruses reported, going well back into last fall, when the report came out that google would be tracking all flu seaches via google search engine per request of the new Obama administration.
Why would our government want to be tracking flu searches? Could the reason be the 2 missing vials of live flu virus, one avian and the other was human flu virus (a deadly combination if they were ever to get mixed together) that went missing and went all but unreported in the MSM? The answer is unequivocally…YES.
Now, the MSM are still up to shenanigans by reporting this outbreak as swine flu, but if you go to the CDC & the WHO, they are both reporting the virus as a mix of all 3, swine, human and avian. Why are the MSM and the US Govt Officials covering up and misleading the public? Do you know what there may be to lose? Do you know what some might wish to gain? Let us not presume. Let us demand thorough investigation. Anything short of that is foolhardy.
The interview begins at approx 4:20 into the show after the musical opening:
Alexander S. Jones, who has been doing extensive research on what he describes as this man-made virus. Jones is one who predicted what is happening — and worse, in the very near future. Following is yesterday’s email, accredited to Mr. Jones (not the Alex Jones of the netradio program):
As many are aware now, the situation in Mexico is out of control. Doctors on the ground say a minimum of 200 are dead. The virus has clearly spread worldwide, including to the UK , via aircraft, carried by an infected crew, with ~220 people on the aircraft having left or made connecting flights, which means the virus will undoubtedly spread across Europe.
It is my belief that we have cases of swine, cases of avian and also cases of human flu, but with them all in the air and the number of deaths being reported in Mexico City, it is my belief that yes, there is a strain that has morfed into a deadly strain.
AP reporting early this evening: “the number of flu cases in the US has now more than quadrupled in just a few days, many of them are being reported as a different flu. They are NOT swine flu, but a new strain and now the Obama administration and CDC are considering renaming the virus”
Just as Alexander predicted, hmmmm. Me thinks they know more than they are releasing.
UPDATE#2: MORE RESEARCH AND TIMELINE SHOWING THE US GOVT KNEW WELL IN ADVANCE OF OBAMA’S VISIT TO MEXICO THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM. Also, research is leaning towards this NOT deriving from a livestock facility as is being reported by the media:
Greg’s Blog : Analysis Shows Asian, European and U.S. Sources in Swine Flu April 28, 2009 update— Greg Contreras asks: “where the hell did it get all these genes from?” Phylogenic trees of the current strain in the US…Researchers are puzzled over the origins and spread of the current H1N1 human borne influenza and that has health officials around the world worried.The current virus mixes an existing triple combination of human, avian and swine influenza identified in 1998 with two new swine virus genes from Asia and Europe, both of human origin. Because of its novelty, humans are unlikely to have any immunity to it. The current seasonal flu vaccine targets a different H1N1 strain and isn’t likely to offer any protection.Indeed, according to a report in Recombinomics, March 24, 2009, the failure rate of the H1N1 virus seen in Rapid City, South Dakota was as much as 50% among those vaccinated for influenza. It’s not clear whether those new virus cases, as the instant virus was only sent for classification in mid-March. . . a “MUST” read

The AP reports that Fox has decided to stick with its regular line-up on Wednesday, meaning it won’t air President Obama’s prime-time news conference marking his 100th day in office. Instead, viewers will see an episode of “Lie to Me.”
ABC, CBS, and NBC will be airing the press conference.
UPDATE:Ladue Pundit posted this clarification: Oh, NBC, CBS and ABC will also be airing “Lie to Me,” the Obama version.
Although the laws may vary from state to state, Grand Juries are viewed the way United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia sees them,
“In fact, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people.”
United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia ruled in the case of United States vs. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 at 48 (1992):
“Rooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history, Hannah v. Larche, 363 US 420, 490 (1960) with J. Frankfurter concurring in result, the Grand Jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the three branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right.”
Clearly stated: The Grand Jury is a separate and equal Constitutional power. The Grand Jury is not a tool for government to use against its citizens.
There are not going to be any lynch parties for politicians. As much as we might mention ‘torches and pitchforks,’ the only revolution I support and the only revolutions supported by the leadership of the Grand Jury movement is a revolution as defined by the U. S. Constitution. Our forefathers had the wisdom to provide a way for citizens to redress their grievances in a peaceful way.

But my right-ruling is with YHWH, and my work with my Elohim.’ ” And now said YHWH – who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant, to bring Jacob back to Him, though Israel is not gathered to Him, yet I am esteemed in the eyes of YHWH, and My Elohim has been My strength – and He says, “Shall it be a small matter for You to be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to bring back the preserved ones of Israel? - And I shall give You as a light to the gentiles, to be My deliverance to the ends of the earth!”
