Boy Scouts victims of homosexual agenda

May 23, 2015

 Bizarro world of gay activism incrementally pushes agenda, sets standards

Homosexuality, which until 1973 was defined as deviant behavior by the American Psychiatric Association, has —- 42 years later —- become “gay” and trendy. Celebrities stumble over themselves to be the latest to declare their inclinations for members of the same sex. We are treated to countless characters in movies, on stage, coming into our homes via comedy programming and even the cartoons children watch.  Who doesn’t know that 65-year-old Bruce Jenner, a three times married father of six and stepfather of four is “transitioning into womanhood?” We are told this is worthy of celebration.

How do the Boy Scouts of America fit into this scenario? Start with their oath:

“On my honor, I will do my best: To do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law. To help other people at all times. To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

The Scout Law states: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.

Founded in 1909, scouting taught boys various survival skills, patriotism and morality. They earned merit badges for completing projects. Many city kids went camping for the first time in their lives. Public schools were happy to sponsor troops. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge commended the three fundamentals of scouting: reverence for nature, for the law and for God.

Fast forward: Since the 1990’s, Scouting has been at the center of a firestorm. Homosexual activists and their surrogates have instituted several high-profile lawsuits, citing the BSA’s core belief that homosexuals cannot serve as scout leaders since that violates the traditional moral values defined in the Scout Oath and Law.

As an example, the ACLU of San Diego claimed that the organization’s practice was discriminatory and should make them ineligible for the use of public funds or public lands.

In 2005, the BSA removed the charters of thousands of scouting units from public schools after the ACLU threatened to sue taxpayer-funded institutions that charter the troops.

The city of Philadelphia, citing the Scout’s “anti-gay policies” pressured the Cradle of Liberty Council Boy Scouts of America to vacate the building the BSA built on city property in the simpler times of 1928 and has used rent-free for decades. In 2013, the city bought the building from the Scouts. At the time, more than 17,000 boys were served by the Council in Philadelphia and Montgomery and Delaware Counties.

Gay rights activists in dozens of cities persuaded United Way to stop supporting the Scouts, though UW distributed nearly $2 million to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and no voices were raised in protest.

Now we learn that Robert Gates, former Secretary of Defense and President of Boy Scouts of America, has called for an end to the group’s ban on homosexual troop leaders. Gates, a former Eagle Scout (the highest scouting rank), declares, “We cannot ignore the social, political and judicial changes taking place in our country. We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be. The status quo….cannot be maintained.” 

A righteous organization providing guidance to countless boys, many from fatherless homes, becomes the villain in this topsy-turvy world of sexual politics.

The kids lose.


Obama handcuffs police

May 20, 2015

On February 28, 1997, Los Angeles police officers engaged in one of the most violent gun battles in modern law enforcement history. A foiled bank robbery and the lengthy exchange of gun fire that followed came to be known as the North Hollywood Shootout. Twelve officers and eight civilians were wounded. The two heavily armed bank robbers eventually were taken down. What makes this shootout involving nearly 2,000 rounds of ammunition memorable is the fact that the police were outgunned by the criminals who were wearing the latest in body armor and carrying military-level armaments. The battle gave police agencies a compelling reason to better equip patrol officers, arming them with semi-automatic rifles, rather than pistols and 12-gauge shotguns.

That was then and this is now.

Barack Obama has announced a ban on federal transfers of various types of military-style gear to local police departments.

“We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like they’re an occupying force, as opposed to a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them,” Obama said in a speech in Camden, New Jersey earlier this week. He said such equipment can “alienate and intimidate local residents and may send the wrong message.”

He announced the formation of a volunteer, “Elite Tech Team,” described as “data scientists, software engineers, and tech leaders, to assist law enforcement.” Obama absurdly says, “They’re going to work with the police department to troubleshoot some of the technical challenges so it’s even easier for police departments to do the things they already want to do in helping to track what’s going on in communities, and then also helping to make sure that data is used effectively to identify where there are trouble spots, where there are problems, are there particular officers that may need additional help, additional training.  All that can be obtained in a really effective, efficient way,” he claimed. 

Since when is it up to the President of the United States to decide how individual city police departments function and which officers may “need help or additional training?” Exactly how do volunteers fit into that scenario?

Through an executive order, Obama instructed federal departments to consult with police and civil rights groups to come up with restrictions on police use of military equipment. 

Obama also declared that he is launching what he calls “Promise Zones,” to combat “a sense of unfairness and powerlessness, to change the odds for communities because we’re providing job training, and helping to reduce violence, and expanding affordable housing.” 

Instilling the importance of education, respect, and working to lower the astronomical out-of-wedlock births in black communities —- which carry a near certain guarantee of poverty and accompanying high crime rates —- would be a great starting point. 

But don’t expect that to happen. The national media remains fixated on supporting Obama’s agenda of racial divisiveness, dutifully reporting on his betrayal of our dedicated law enforcement personnel —- blaming them for unrest and now severely restricting their abilities to serve and protect.


GOP establishment conspires with Obama on trade deal

McConnell: Obama ‘has done an excellent job’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) appeared on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday morning, telling host George Stephanopoulos that he supports Hillary Clinton’s Obamatrade deal. (Transcript here)

McConnell has come under fire from both Republicans and Democrats this past week for pushing the slippery Trade Promotion Authority that would fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership trade liberalization deal Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton negotiated with eleven Pacific Rim nations.

Conservative Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, contends McConnell is jeopardizing Republican control of the U.S. Senate in the next election by pushing this tremendously unpopular trade deal through Congress.

But McConnell is not to be dissuaded. He previously described his coordination with Obama on trade as “an out-of-body experience.” 

Fast-track authority faces a significantly more difficult path in the House. Nearly all Democrats are opposed to the scheme, along with strong a contingent of Republicans.

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, expressed confidence that the measure will pass in the House. “We will have the votes,” Ryan declared on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’re doing very well. We’re gaining a lot of steam and momentum.”

Arizona Rep. Matt Salmon (R-CD-5) exhibiting eel-like slipperiness, was quoted as saying, 

“The president I don’t think has any political capital at all with this place, and it’s coming to bear right now because the president needs a real heavy lift, and nobody feels any real connection with him or like they owe him anything.”

Still, Salmon plans to vote for Obama’s trade agenda when it hits the House floor, though unlike Ryan, he claims doesn’t think House GOP leadership has the votes.

 “I’m voting for it,” Salmon stated, “not because of him but in spite of him. I don’t think he could pick me out of a crowd, which is so different from when I was here when Bill Clinton was president because President Clinton was really engaged with everybody.” 

Sunday’s Arizona Republic weighs in with an mega-editorial urging Democrats Kyrsten Sinema (CD-9) and Ann Kirkpatrick (CD-1) not to side “with extremists” and to ignore pressure from labor unions which oppose the trade pact and, coincidently, fund their campaigns.

AZ Republic selectively redefines marriage

May 15, 2015

The local newspaper has once again gotten its dander up on the topic of marriage. This time it is not carping about family owned bakeries, florists, wedding photographers or pizzerias whose religious views cause them to decline serving same sex ceremonies —- making the small businesses ripe targets for ruinous lawsuits. 

Editorialists at the Arizona Republic have set their sights on the FLDS a fundamentalist polygamous sect which broke away from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) over a hundred years ago. It operates out of a small, one-school town in Mohave County now known as Colorado City. Back in the 1950’s then-Gov. Howard Pyle made headlines after authorizing state police and National Guard raids on the town when it was known as Short Creek.

The newspaper has swung into high gear headlining an editorial “Polygamous town an affront to justice.” 

Make no mistake, Seeing Red AZ is not onboard with numerous wives allowed in patriarchal polygamous societies. Multiple spouses do not constitute our idea of marriage. Polyandry, where women have multiple husbands falls into that same unacceptable category, as do deplorable forced marriages and child brides in Colorado City.

Yet as  marriage is redefined, we witness the unprecedented spectacle of “anything goes” simultaneous trio and quintet egalitarian “marriages” as evidenced by these reported in Brazil, and the Netherlands.

For the Arizona Republic, which glorifies the redefinition of marriage when it involves same-sex couples —- declaring the concept of family has evolved —- to editorialize about the lawlessness presented by polygamy is beyond disingenuous.

The newspaper has toiled tirelessly to create this reckless affront to traditional moral principles. It can’t have it both ways.


U.S. SC Justices’ bias void impartiality claims

April 22, 2015

Justices Ginsburg, Kagan have taken public stance in favor of same-sex marriage

Should U.S. Supreme Court justices who effectively endorsed same-sex marriage by officiating at such ceremonies be ruling on whether or not the Constitution grants states the right to ban them?

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg performed a same-sex marriage in Washington, D.C., in August 2013. Justice Elena Kagan officiated at a same-sex marriage for her former law clerk and his partner last September. 

Herbert Titus, a nationally recognized constitutional authority, is quoted as saying the two justices must have known at the time that it was almost inevitable for the issue to be put to the Supreme Court, “yet they went ahead and put their official imprimatur on same-sex marriage.” Titus said the likely response from the justices will be that they believe that they can be neutral on the issue of same-sex marriage.

“It tells you an awful lot about the culture,” he continued. “These people are immersed in the homosexual culture to the point they would step out of their role as a justice to officiate in a wedding that would put them in a position of lending their name and prestige to same-sex marriage when they had every good reason to believe the issue would be before the court.”

April 28 is the day the Supreme Court will hear arguments in an appeal from the Sixth Circuit regarding the constitutionality of state constitutional bans on same-sex marriage. A helpful guide intended for fledgling reporters covering the challenges can be read on the SCOTUS blog

The American Family Association (AFA) provides a way for citizens to tell their congressional representatives that both Ginsburg and Kagan need to recuse themselves from the case.

“U.S. Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg should recuse themselves from any cases involving the homosexual marriage issue on the basis that they have conducted same-sex marriage ceremonies,” the campaign letter states.

Joining AFA is the Coalition of African-American Pastors, (CAAP). It has also called upon the justices to recuse themselves, since each has revealed a pro-homosexual bias.

“A Justice of the Supreme Court is called on to avoid the appearance of bias—especially on a highly controversial and sensitive issue that is currently before the Court,” said Rev. William Owens, president and founder of CAAP. “And yet, both Justice Ginsburg and Justice Kagan have taken a public stance in favor of same-sex marriage, even going so far as to officiate at a same-sex wedding.”

“Not only is this a breach of ethics, but it calls into question the integrity of the Court and the supposed balance that the judicial branch is meant to provide in constitutional interpretation. It is beyond objectionable that no action has yet been taken to ensure that the case will be adjudicated fairly. And so it falls to us, the people, to take action. CAAP is launching a petition urging Justices Kagan and Ginsburg remove themselves from decision-making on this issue and prevent a crisis brought on by the taint of a biased judiciary.”


Prez candidates vie for deprived, minority status

April 16, 2015

Tea and crumpets lose out to tortillas, chitlins, latkes, and fry bread

Among 2016 American office seekers a new absurdity is taking hold.  It has suddenly become déclassé to be white or privileged. The need to rid oneself of such foul roots has become as necessary as wiping dog droppings off the soles of your crocodile Gucci’s before venturing into a grande maison.  

Presidential candidates are stumbling over themselves to find a shred of convincing minority status to make themselves more appealing to the voters who put Barack Obama in office —- twice.

If they don’t have actual deprivation credentials, they willingly manufacture them. Thus white-bread, blue-blood candidates like Jeb Bush —- whose mother attended elite schools and can trace her family roots back to President Franklin Pierce —- “mistakenly” registered to vote in 2009 in Florida listing his ethnicity as Hispanic. He also forgot his father’s heritage.  The 41st President George H.W. Bush traces his family back to American colonists, attended the tony Phillips Academy in Andover Massachusetts and followed his own father to Yale.

Now BuzzFeed News is reporting that Hillary Clinton —- whose vocal dexterity enables her to emulate what she regards as a “black accent” at will —– has devised her own bogus heritage saying “all of my grandparents, you know, came over here.”  Videos and documentation on BuzzFeed reveal an entirely different set of facts.

“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman attempted to feed BuzzFeed News.

Since Hillary’s lie was laid bare, that equally deceptive answer should settle the deliberate pretense, or so she hopes.

Hillary will do whatever she thinks it takes to sway votes her way. CBS News reported that while campaigning for a U.S. senate seat in 1999, she even contrived a Jewish grandfather in New York City where she thought such a revelation could help her garner votes. Max Rosenberg was later revealed as her grandmother’s second husband with no blood line connecting him to the desperately hilarious Hillary.

Although Jeb Bush’s outlandish ethnic claim appears to be an anomaly among Republicans, Democrat woman have cornered the market on such bizarre declarations. As far back as 1986, while she was still a professor at the University of Texas Law School, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren intentionally requested special treatment by falsely self-identifying as a “Minority Law Teacher.” Breitbart fills in the gaping holes of her absurd story alleging Native American status. 

This morning Wayne Allyn Root, writing for Townhall compares Hillary to Richard Nixon calling her “Tricky Dicky Hillary.” The comparison is unfair to Nixon —- a Quaker who was raised in a family with five boys that barely scraped by, in a 900-square foot home his father built from a mail-order kit.  Nixon didn’t have to contrive a hardscrabble history.

Going into this campaign season, we’re going to need very large scoreboards to keep track of the impoverished candidates and their ethnic whoppers. 


McCain urged IRS to target conservatives

April 12, 2015

And you thought McCain had confined himself to purging conservative elected Precinct Committeemen from the Arizona Republican Party *

The Washington Examiner headlines, “Sens. McCain and Levin urged IRS to target Tea Party, conservative groups,”  and follows up with this blockbuster report. It’s doubtful you’ll find this revelation in the pages of the Arizona Republic newspaper.

Excerpted from the report:

According to Judicial Watch officials who obtained the latest batch of documents after a federal judge issued a court order in one of the Judicial Watch’s lawsuits about the IRS’ abuses, “A May 1, 2013, email exchange between Lois Lerner and other top IRS staffers revealed that 11 days prior to Lerner’s admission that the IRS had “inappropriately” targeted conservative groups, she met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the ‘worst decisions I have ever seen.'”

 * McCain operatives have worked to eradicate conservative PC’s in a concerted effort to replace them with mavericky moderates after McCain was embarrassingly censured by elected Republican state committeemen in 2014. This year many committeeman booed McCain and others turned their backs to him as he addressed the gathering.
