“Helping Restore Poor Leaders to Right Thinking”

120logo[1]The Liberty Counsel of Liberty University has adopted a “Prayer in Action Program”, whereby they are encouraging their members to choose a liberal in need of prayer and to pray that the said liberal(s) is/are restored to “right thinking.”

The group offers these “liberals” as being in need of prayer:  Michael Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton, Barney Frank [not a big surprise there], John Holdren, Barry Lynn, Janet Napolintano, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Arnold Schwartenegger, Olympia Snowe, and any other liberal of your choice.

Just as an example, here is why Hillary Clinton needs prayerful guidance:  “Hillery Clinton, former Democratic senator for New York, favors abortion, embryonic stem cell research and opposed criminalizing harm to an unborn child that occurs during an attack on the mother.  The radical pro-abortion group NARAL concluded that her policies were 100% pro-abortion.  She approves of hate crimes legislation and laws that give same-sex civil unions equal benefits, rights and privileges to marriage.  She advocated that homosexuals should be able to serve in the military without concealing their unnatural sexual preferences and she co-sponsored a bill that was intended to provide benefits to domestic partners of Federal employees.  Since becoming Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has testified that the new policy of the United States is to repeal abortion restrictions around the world.”

Here is the site, for those of you ready to start your prayerful crusades.  Here is the WaPo take on the story.

Palin’s Co-Author Hints at Going Rogue’s Slant

LynnSarahWorldMagazine[2]Lynn Vincent, Palin’s co-author for her upcoming book gives hints as to what the finished product will look like. 

 This Politico article suggests: “Palin’s choice of Vincent suggests that her [book] will be, emphatically, a partisan tract.  And it is of a piece with a post-election posture in which the nation’s most intensely popular, and most intensely unpopular, Republican has chosen to deepen her bond with her base at the cost of antipathy from the independent voters who decide presidential elections.”

Vincent assisted with the book of General William Boykin, whose military career ended when he preached from the pulpit about our country’s holy war with Islam.  Vincent believes that one in ten Muslims are peaceful and the remainder warrent careful monitoring. Terming Vincent’s political posturing as being on the side of fascism is a little mild, actually.

There are already signs that Palin’s book will be a huge best-seller.  Hopefully the book will get the word out about Palin and she will become the laughing-stock she so richly deserves to be.

A Record Day Which Ended a Record Month

400_F_4811867_SouyWOKfYlBYYyD5IYy2Edk7AzAHPXni[1]Yesterday we set a new daily record for the number of views; we had 812 views which beat the earlier record of 701 views in a day which was set on a Wednesday in August.

We set a new monthly record of views last month also.  We started  midway in March 2009 and got 2,818 views that month.  The monthly totals since then have been: April, 8,472; May 9,080; June, 9,344; July, 9,851; August, 11, 404; September, 12,460.

As I said yesterday, I think the record day and month were the result of more people contributing threads.  Diversity and numbers are our strenghs.  Thus, I want to urge you all to start threads.

Enjoy the blogging and let’s set some new records!
