Black Pastor: “Obama Has No Honor!”

President Obama face WH photo SC Black pastor: “Obama has no honor!”

Harlem pastor Rev. James David Manning delivered a stem-winder sermon to his flock with such passion he was overcome with so much emotion he had trouble catching his breath!  He called out for his black flock to regain honor. “Fifteen people killed while Obama was in town (Chicago)” he screamed out recently from his video pulpit.   “Only a N (word) would do that. . .no other word describes such lack of honor!”

In the stellar tradition of Jonathan Edwards, America’s “most important and original philosophical theologian” Manning exemplifies the man of the cloth who so loves his people that he exhorts them in the strongest terms possible to change their ways.  “The debauchery, killing each other in Chicago, Detroit, New York . . and no outcry, the only word that describes this social behavior is the N word (he actually says it),” says Manning. The Harlem preacher who has been roundly denounced by the country’s liberal establishment (including the media) has even been investigated by the FBI. He is telling his people he is disgusted by the subversion of America’s Constitution by our courts, our Congress, our media, our police, even the Clintons, Sarah Palin, Bill O’Reilly, and John McCain for protecting Obama even as they ignore the Obama eligibility questions!

“This matter cannot be resolved by this election,” Manning preaches as he fears only blood running in America’s streets in a redo of our Civil War over slavery can wash away the stain of hypocrisy and delusion gripping out land.  The deaths of black men killed by other black men are ignored by our current establishment.  “Only if someone white kills a black man (is) there any uproar,” Manning says.

He calls out the dishonorable black men who abandon their babies for government entitlement checks as being especially abhorrent!  The tradition of hellfire and brimstone American preachers started back in the colonial days when preachers like Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield delivered such moving sermons to their congregations that entire revivalist movements spurred Americans to avoid the wages of sin.  “Sinners in the Hand of an Angry God” is Edwards’ most famous sermon that literally scared his flock into redemption by images of fiery pits and eternal damnation in the depths of Hell.  Manning’s sermon genre is speaking to audiences now in what a Presbyterian minister is calling America’s state of moral confusion.

“I love America,” Manning screams.  He compares the sin of slavery that started the first Civil War with the sins of hypocrisy and abuse of the U.S. Constitution happening in America’s halls of power.  “Leaders don’t get upset. .when blacks kill blacks. . .because black people have no honor,” he says.  He stresses to his followers the hypocrisy of black on black crime being ignored versus the uproar over the few instances when whites attack blacks.

Walker: Raising taxes, cutting services 'false choice'

'The question … is about spending the money we have more wisely'

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who came into office last year, blew out a multibillion dollar state budget deficit with his cost-cutting measures, fought off a recall and watched as his state soared in popularity among business owners as its unemployment rate plunged, has some advice for Washington.

“I hate big government,” he said. “But I really hate a government that doesn’t work.”

So when “they say we either have to raise taxes or cut core services,” it’s actually a “false choice.”
“The question isn’t about spending more money, it’s about spending the money we have more wisely,” he said at a “Tribute to Ronald Reagan” dinner, part of the 2012 Defending the American Dream Summit hosted by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation in Washington D.C. today.

The event was livestreamed on WND.

The event opened with a prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, the Star Spangled Banner and the words of Reagan, who urged Americans to realize that “America remains mankind’s best hope.”

Those words were part of a video montage featuring Barack Obama mocking “Americans For Prosperity” during numerous speeches juxtaposed against the words of Reagan, holding America up as a model for others to follow, rather than being ashamed of.

Walker, whose accomplishment in turning the ominous fiscal and economy situations in Wisconsin around, where his state soared from the mid-40s among attractiveness to business people to No. 20, said, “In education, they say either property taxes have to go up, or we’ll have poor education – that’s a false choice.’

He said school districts in his state now can “bid out” the health insurance coverage rather than being required to purchase from a union-affiliated company – and that has saved tens of millions of dollars.

“That money goes right into the classroom,” he said. “We [conservatives] are the ones who care about the kids. We want the money in the classroom.”

And he said staffing has been reworked.

“The unions say ‘last hired – first fired,’, we say hire and fire based on merit,” he said. “We want the best and brightest in the classroom.”

“Looking at America’s history, ordinary people did something extraordinary,” he said. “Leaders risked their lives for freedoms that we take for granted today.

“That’s what instills confidence.

“That’s us,” he said. “We will move forward and prosper because that’s who we are as Americans.”

Tim Phillips, president of AFP, earlier broke the news to the Washington crowd that a tweet had gone out from President Obama last night to Olympic gold medal winner Gabby Douglas upon her remarkable achievement, saying, “Gabby – You didn’t do that. That wasn’t you who won that medal. Other people made those roads that got you to the gym every morning. Gabby, you need to spread the gold medal wealth around.”

Of course Phillips cautioned that he was just joking about the tweet, but the message wasn’t lost on the crowd of Americans who signaled with their laughter and applause that Obama may live to regret ever uttering the words to American entrepreneurs, “You didn’t build that.”

Phillips reminded the crowd of more famous words from Reagan spoken in 1979, “A recession is when your friend loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job, and recovery begins when Jimmy Carter loses his job.”

The enormous applause thundered even louder when Phillips shouted over the crowd, “Our recovery begins when Barack Obama loses his job this November.”

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell urged Americans to return to the roots that this country was founded on, and said that this country’s citizens are hungry for people of character to look them in the eye and be honest with them.

“The American dream of life, liberty, and property came from God – not government,” he said, and the “role of government is to defend them,” and not “take them away.”

Wisconsin radio host Vicki McKenna briefly explained to the audience and all who were watching that Wisconsin recently survived an all-out assault on liberty – and won.

She said that for 15 months, “We were harassed, kicked, spit on, beaten, occupied, threatened, and eventually we were recalled.”

“Why did we walk through fire? Because we had two choices, Tyranny or Liberty. Tyranny is government absent choice, and Liberty is choice absent government.

“We chose Liberty,” she said. “We proved that you can make government work for people – it must – and the only way it does is when it gets out of the way.”

Conservative author and speaker Michelle Malkin then took the stage and reminded people what is wrong with the current administration.

“We can’t trust anyone with the job of limiting government, we have to do it ourselves,” she said.

Turning to the cameras, she said, “Let me say to our commander in chief while we have the cameras on,” and pointing at a large marquee with the words American Dream, said, “The American Dream – You didn’t build that.”

She explained what liberals have done for America.

“Radicals and their cronies build stone walls, pipe dreams, they dig holes in the ground, and when faced with failure, they dig deeper,” she said.

Walker, who was elected in November of 2010, said, “It’s not just about elections, it’s what happens after elections that matter to your children and my children.”

He then talked about traveling around the state of Wisconsin and meeting the people who would elect him to be the CEO of the state, twice.

“I would meet workers, just getting off work after a long shift, big guys with grease on their shirts who would point their finger at me and say, ‘Governor, my wife and I are praying for you.’ Thank you,” said Walker.

He told how his campaign was not a campaign as much as a job interview, and that when he was sent to the highest office in the state, he wanted to be sworn in, in front of the state constitution which contains a “frugality clause.”

This clause, he explained “means moderation and frugality in government lead to freedom and prosperity for our people.”

He also relayed the shock conveyed by one reporter after taking over the governor’s office.

The reporter remarked that most new governors wouldn’t even have their bags unpacked, and Walker was already making the drastic changes Wisconsin is enjoying today.

He told the reporter, “If you’re the CEO of a troubled company, you don’t wait a year to fix it, you get to work on day one.”

His concept is simple: “People create jobs, not the government. Government should enforce common sense, not bureaucratic red-tape.”

He enthused the crowd with what would normally be dry statistics, when he explained that historically Wisconsin has been in the bottom 10 states for economic health, and in just two years it has broken into the top 20.

He said employers were surveyed just before his reforms about he direction of the state, and only 10 percent of employers thought the state was headed in the right direction. A recent survey, less than two years later, shows that a whopping 94 percent of employers, now say that the state is headed in the right direction.

“Being a competitive guy, I want to know what’s wrong with the other six percent of the employers,” Walker said.

His final statistic was explaining how Wisconsin went from having a $3.7 billion deficit, to presently having a surplus two years in a row through the comprehensive reforms.

“I want my kids to grow up in a Wisconsin at least as good as the Wisconsin I grew up in, and that means we’re going to pay our bills now,” he said.

Holding up Wisconsin as a model for the rest of the country, Walker urged voters to put the right people in office.

“It’s our duty to think about the next generation – not just the next election,” he said to a roaring, standing ovation.

Video of Malkin’s address:

And Walker’s speech:

The tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, has led to a lot of unfortunate misinformation about firearms. Let's try to add some facts to the justified emotion. 

Are Some Guns More Dangerous than Others? The shooter in Aurora had three firearms when he entered the theater: a pump action shotgun, a semiautomatic rifle and a semiautomatic handgun.

In a closed, crowded setting like a movie theater, the shotgun was probably the most lethal of the three. Every shotgun shell can spray a half-dozen or more pellets, each capable of killing or maiming a person. Twelve-gauge shotguns often fire five shells, and sometimes more, before needing to be reloaded. And unlike semiautomatics, they don't typically jam.

Yet in most American cities, just about anybody can buy a shotgun at the drop of a hat. Antigun activists and politicians almost never propose banning them.

Instead, the focus these days is on so-called "assault weapons." 

Should We Be Especially Worried About Assault Weapons? Assault weapons are not usually the weapon of choice. Neither of the two worst shooting sprees in U.S. history involved assault weapons. James Huberty, who killed 20 people at a McDonald's restaurant in San Ysidro, California, in 1984, used a shotgun, a pistol and a hunting rifle. George Hennard, who killed 22 people at a Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, in 1991, used two ordinary pistols.

Still, gun opponents seem obsessed about them. So what exactly is an "assault weapon"? 

What Are Assault Weapons? You would think that the definition would hinge on a weapon's fire power or its capacity to maim or kill. Not so. Assault weapons are mainly defined by their appearance. As Steve Chapman explained the other day:
Assault weapons are functionally indistinguishable from ordinary semiautomatic hunting rifles.
They don't fire more rapidly, they don't deliver more lethal rounds, and they don't spray bullets. 
They only look like military arms. 
The features that disqualified a gun under the federal ban were ones that didn't affect destructiveness, such as pistol grips and bayonet mounts. If accused [Aurora] killer James Holmes had been prevented from buying this gun, he could have found plenty of others that would have served his purpose just as well.
Basically, what disqualified a weapon when the short-lived assault weapons ban was in effect was looking like a military weapon. The offensive features included plastic stocks, extended ammunition clips, collapsible butt-stocks, and other decorative devices that made them look like, but not operate as, a fully functional assault rifle.

Contrary to the claims that military-looking weapons are only designed to kill human beings, they are, in fact, the fastest growing segment of the hunting rifle market! 

What About Machine Guns? Most TV commentators who decry assault weapons imply that they are automatic — that you just pull the trigger and bullets start flying. Not so. It has been illegal to buy a machine gun on the open market in the United States for more than 80 years. However, you can obtain one under special permit and there are about 250,000 in private hands.

Now here is something interesting: despite all those guns in private hands, there appears not to be a single instance of a legally owned machine gun being used to commit a crime throughout the entire 80 year period.

This illustrates two things: (1) the bumper stickers have it right: guns don't kill, people do; and (2) we can have reasonable restrictions on access to guns without banning them altogether.

That brings us to another obsession: the insistence that guns are useless as tools of self-defense. 

Are Guns Useful for Self-Defense? As it turns out, they are. According to research by renowned Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck, guns are used between 800,000 and 2.5 million times every year in self-defense.

A study by John Lott and David Mustard found that handguns appear to help women more than men. While murder rates drop when either sex carries more guns, the effect is especially pronounced when women carry.

Each additional woman carrying a concealed handgun reduces the murder rate for women three to four times more than an additional armed man reduces the murder rate for men. 

Do More Guns Cause More Crime? In the typical Western movie, everyone has a gun. When they go into a bar, they start drinking. Then, they start insulting each other. Before long, they start shooting each other. It may be good theater, but it's lousy history. Turns out, 19th century Dodge City was more peaceful than most American cities are today! Robert Heinlein explained why: "An armed society is a polite society," he wrote.

Overall, some of the most heavily-armed states have very low violent crime rates and vice versa. Also, it appears that when the good guys are armed there is less gun violence. Research by John Lott shows that allowing citizens the right to carry concealed handguns reduces violent crime. In those states that passed right-to-carry concealed handgun laws, the average murder rate dropped from 6.3 per 100,000 to 5.2 per 100,000 nine to 10 years later — about a 1.7% drop in the murder rate per year for 10 years.

In states that enacted right-to-carry laws between 1977 and 1999, the overall occurrence of multiple-victim shootings dropped by a remarkable 67% with deaths and injuries from such shootings plummeting by 75% and 81%, respectively. And since 1997, two of eight school shootings were both stopped by citizens with guns (before police even arrived at the scene). 

What Does the International Evidence Show? Switzerland actually requires young males to keep weapons in their homes, as part of the country's militia. Yet no one has ever accused Switzerland of being a host to Wild West shootouts. Finland has one of the highest rates of gun ownership in the world. Yet it too has a very low rate of violent crime.
Obama insists the economy is improving...he lies!
By: Diane Sori

"Today's increase in the unemployment rate is a hammer blow to struggling middle-class families," Mitt Romney said in a statement after the newest job numbers were released on Friday morning.

Mitt Romney continued to say that Barack Hussein Obama’s economic policies are an "extraordinary record of failure."  And how right he is.

The newest July numbers from the Labor Department showed the unemployment rate jumping from 8.2% to 8.3%, remaining above the 8% mark for the 43rd straight month in a row, which, by the way, is the longest the unemployment rate has remained above 8% in American history. 

Thanks Obama, you’ve screwed ‘We the People’ big time again.

Sadly, this July rise to 8.3% paints a true moribund economic picture.  When glancing quickly at the numbers one would assume that hiring has indeed increased because the numbers show 163,000 newly created jobs.

However, what is NOT being reported is that 156,000 new names were added to the unemployment rolls and/or the disability rolls...or they just plain gave up.  So, that means if you meld the new jobs created with the new additions to the unemployment rolls, in reality only 7,000 jobs were actually created.

We now have 23.8 million Americans out of work and only 7,000 new jobs actually created in the month of July...very sad indeed.  And the simple truth that neither the media nor experts will tell you is that it would take 250,000 new jobs per month being created to bring the unemployment rate down in a reasonable amount of time. 

And the news actually gets worse as the rise in the 'real unemployment rate’ went from 14.9% to 15%.  This figure includes those people who are underemployed and those who have left the work force all together because they just can't find work.

It’s also important to remember that the jobs created were for the most part broad-based NOT trade based (for example carpenters, painters, plumbers, welders, builders, etc.), the area which is hurting the most.  Manufacturing added 25,000 jobs, restaurants and bars added 29,000 workers, retailers added 7,000 more workers, and education and health services added 38,000 positions. 

But again remember that for all those jobs created more people were added to the unemployment rolls.

And here’s another happy bit of news...the Obama administration contends that as long as the unemployment rate remains high, the Central Bank will have to consider another stimulus package, which we all know was one big useless waste of time and money the first time, and would be no different the second time around.  In fact, the Federal Reserve issued a statement that it would be forced to take further steps if hiring doesn't pick up soon. 

Just what we don't need...the Federal Reserve butting into our business yet again.

Now add into this unhappy mix that economists are NOT expecting job growth to pick up before the election.  Factoring into their prediction is the European debt crisis and the fiscal belt tightening scheduled for the end of this year as we wait to see who the next president will be. 

Yet even with all this bad news, the White House had the audacity to issue a statement saying that the economy is recovering!  Are they totally delusional or just plain stupid! 

And add into that the fact that the political pundits in the media and on TV, including sadly those on FOX, are all leaving out the fact that the number of jobs created does NOT factor in the new additions to the unemployment and disability rolls, and it becomes obvious that the Obama spin-meisters are working overtime to cover-up the truth that in a word our

Thanks to our ever loving Barack Hussein Obama's miserable economic policies, another recession sure seems to be on the horizon.  Bottom line...November 6th can’t come soon enough.
