Cory Gardner Tries to Take Contraception Issue Away from Democrats

GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner is betting that contraception will get him at least a few votes among Colorado women who've bought into the "war on women" meme promoted by the Democratic Party. 

Gardner has released an ad in which he calls for contraception to be available to women "over the counter" without a doctor's prescription, "around the clock," he says. 

Gardner is in the middle of a bruising fight with incumbent Democrat Mark Udall who has been going after Gardner for his past support of what's called a "personhood" amendment, a divisive proposition that would allow for an unborn child from conception to be considered a person and therefore protected from abortion under state and federal law. "Personhood" has lost resoundingly in Colorado, largely because opponents have convinced Colorado women that it would ban certain kinds of contraceptives. Gardner has backtracked from support of "personhood," but Udall's attacks persist

It appears the new proposal from Gardner on contraception is his attempt to fight back against Udall's charges that he is bad for women on the bedroom issues. Gardner draws a distinction between himself and Udall since Udall, like most Democrats, insist that women must have a prescription from their doctor to get the contraceptive pill. Gardner says this results in a politicization of the issue, higher costs—therefore more profits for drug companies, and more government control. 

A similar tack was taken by Republican Barbara Comstock, who is running for a Congressional seat in Virginia's 10th congressional district. Comstock wrote a letter to Kathleen Sibelius asking for contraceptives to be available over the counter. In her letter, she said that contraception needs to end as a political issue. This was a direct reference to the Democrats' "war on women" charge. During her primary campaign, Comstock came under attack from two of her opponents and some Catholic bloggers for this position. Comstock won her primary handily.  

It is unclear that making contraception over-the-counter would have any effect on its use in the Unites States. According to the United Nations, at 78%, the United States already has among the highest rates of contraceptive use of any country in the world—lower than China but significantly higher than India. 

The same UN figures also show that an over-the-counter policy may have little or no effect on the incidence of contraceptive use. However, making it over-the-counter could take a hot political issue away from the Democrats, which is what Gardner is hoping for. 








Pioneer Institute: Common Core Will Damage U.S. History Instruction by Combining it with Language Arts

A new study, published by the Boston-based research group Pioneer Institute (PI), demonstrates the serious repercussions of the Common Core standards’ approach of merging academic disciplines.

“By trying to include U.S. History in English language arts (ELA), Common Core will further damage history instruction,” reads a PI press release about the study that analyzes the new literacy standards for U.S. History.

“Imperiling the Republic: The Fate of U.S. History Instruction under Common Core,” was authored by Ralph Ketcham, a preeminent Founding-era historian, Sandra Stotsky, a content expert, and Anders Lewis, a high school history teacher experienced in writing standards.

“The Common Core standards for English language arts provide standards for the English language arts but also ‘literacy’ standards for history,” the co-authors explain in the report’s executive summary.

“Common Core dramatically reduces the amount of classic American literature and poetry students will read in favor of non-fiction or so-called ‘informational texts,’” said Stotsky, a nationally renowned expert on K-12 academic standards, and a former member of Common Core’s Validation Committee. “Consequently, the writers of the national standards attempted to shoehorn little bits and pieces of decontextualized U.S. History texts into the English standards. The simultaneous result damages instruction for both English and U.S. History classrooms.” 

Given that there is little, if any, research to support the efficacy of English teachers being expected to teach U.S. History or informational texts, the authors urge schools to instead offer separate standards and classes for English and U.S. History. 

“Common Core’s standards writers also call for the ‘cold reading’ of historical documents without any background knowledge to place them in the appropriate historical context,” PI’s press release states. “David Coleman, the principal author of the Common Core ELA standards, says that excluding texts’ historical context helps ‘level the playing field.’”

Coleman is considered to be the “architect” of the Common Core standards and now serves as president of the College Board, which has developed a new Advanced Placement (A.P.) U.S. History curriculum. 

PI states the College Board’s A.P. curriculum simply continues the years of progressive philosophy of education that was launched after World War II and has replaced traditional study of U.S. History with social studies and current events courses.

The conservative think tank notes as well that progressive education in general, and the decision to shift away from teaching history per se, have produced poor results.

“By 2010, only 12 percent of high school seniors scored proficient on National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) civics tests,” PI notes. “NAEP has since eliminated the 4th and 12th grade civics tests.”

“The College Board’s new A.P. U.S. History curriculum also mirrors the ideological biases of progressive education,” PI continues. “It begins with a series of negative and divisive themes that are heavily focused on the balkanizing formation of gender, class, racial, and ethnic identity politics.”

“It’s like the bad and the ugly of American history, without any of the good,” said co-author Anders Lewis, a history teacher and art and history department head.

Examples of the progressive ideology present in the new A.P. format include the lack of themes on federalism, separation of powers, the Federalist Papers, and the Gettysburg Address in the curriculum. Additionally, teachers are not asked to provide instruction on Benjamin Franklin, and there is no mention in the curriculum about Thomas Jefferson or James Madison. Similarly, the events of September 11, 2001 are not referred to as an act of terrorism against the United States.

“Federalism as an essential principle of American government stands as the creative organizing concept that allows the fulfillment of the basic ideals of republicanism, liberty, and the public good,” said Founding-era historian and co-author Ralph Ketcham, whose National Book Award-nominated James Madison: A Biography (1991) is considered to be the definitive single-volume biography of the “father of the Constitution.”

“Any set of K-12 standards or curriculum that sidesteps or excludes this constitutional and civic reality damages students’ understanding of our republic and its history,” Ketcham added.

Co-authors Stotsky and Lewis served in state government as the driving intellectual forces behind Massachusetts’ K-12 U.S. History standards - considered to be a national model. Ironically, their standards were graded as among the best in the country by the pro-Common Core Fordham Institute, a fact that would seem to undercut Fordham’s support of the Common Core.

The co-authors recommend that local education governing bodies replace the College Board’s new A.P. U.S. History curriculum with the common civic core explained in Educating Democracy, which was published in 2003 by the Albert Shanker Institute.

“The Founders of the American experiment in democracy assumed that understanding American history was essential in a Union where public-spirited citizenship and the capacity to live under laws ‘wholesome and necessary for the public good’ would characterize the new nation,” the co-authors write. “To proceed without the knowledge of history, in their view, was a sure path to ‘a tragedy or a farce.’”








Federal Judges Against Requirement that Saved Joan Rivers' Life

Federal judges are having a field day lately striking down what abortion proponents call draconian new laws that require abortionists to have admitting privileges at their local hospital. 

Abortion proponents say this imposes an "undue burden," and they are "medically unnecessary." An article in the American Prospect even called such laws "an assault" on women. 

Federal judges have begun to agree. A judge in Texas struck down such a law a few weeks ago. A judge in Louisiana issued a restraining order on such a law that took effect yesterday.

What's Joan Rivers got to do with this? As pro-lifer blogger Jill Stanek reports this week, Rivers went into respiratory and cardiac arrest on August 29th after a "routine throat procedure, a "minor procedure," an "outpatient surgery." These are all terms used to describe abortions. 

Rivers was taken by ambulance to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she is in critical condition. 

Stanek noted that NBC News chief medical editor, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, said on the Today Show on August 29th that hospital admitting privileges may have saved Rivers' life: 

The really important thing here is that every time you think you are going to have a procedure, no matter how minor, you have to constantly remind yourself that although these things are rare, they can happen. And one more thing I should say, make sure your doctor has admitting privileges to the local hospital, because in this case it may well have save Joan Rivers' life. 

Stanek points out that on the one hand, hospital admitting privileges for a minor procedure likely saved Joan Rivers' life, yet similar requirements for abortionists are an undue burden and a violation of a woman's constitutional rights. 

She calls this "the abortion distortion." What is sound medical advice in other areas suddenly becomes a constitutional problem with regard to abortion. She says, "Who would want to go to a doctor who can't get hospital admitting privileges? And why shouldn't (sic) abortion clinics be allowed to operate as substandard medical facilities simply to protect abortion?" 

The New York Daily News reported yesterday that Rivers is being brought out of a medically induced coma and may sue her doctor for a botched procedure, and that she may end up in a vegetative state or in a wheel chair.

Obama calls press conference to announce lack of strategy against ISIS

**Written by Doug Powers

null

President Obama called a presser earlier today to show off his new light tan suit and comfort the public about the fact that there is currently no strategy for defeating ISIS:

“I am confident that as commander in chief, I have the authority to engage in the acts that we are conducting currently. As our strategy develops, we will continue to consult with Congress, and I do think it will be important for Congress to weigh in, and that our consultations with Congress continue to develop so that the American people are part of the debate. But, I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet. What I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of the military as well,” Obama said.

Obama and the military’s assessment is that the news media’s reports of their ISIS strategy is ahead of where their strategy actually is, because there isn’t one? Ah, the old “if you think about it, choosing to not yet have a strategy is actually a strategy” strategy.

Here are interesting offsets:

By the way, the White House has a new official wardrobe provider:

No game plan yet to oppose the "JV team"
Asian-bashing Dems and the doormat minorities who enable them

Asian-bashing Dems and the doormat minorities who enable them

Harry Reid is a bigoted Beltway corruptocrat with an interminable case of diarrhea of the mouth. The feeble-minded coot stuck his foot in that mess of a mouth again last week at the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce. But as mortifying as the Senate Majority Leader is, there’s an even worse spectacle: Asian-American liberals who keep giving top Democrats and their partisan operatives blanket passes.

Reid clumsily offered his assessment of the success and intelligence of business leaders of Asian descent at the gathering. “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” he babbled. You put those uppity Asians in their places, Hater Harry!

During a question-and-answer session, Reid followed up his jibe with a crude “joke” about Chinese surnames that would make Archie Bunker cringe: “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”

Good thing the pale-faced codger didn’t let a “ching-chong” slip out, too. You know it was ringing around between his ears. Mocking Asian monikers is a hanging offense if you’re a Republican pol or conservative talk-show host. But it’s just a meaningless gaffe by “diversity’s” best friend when you’re Democratic Senate Majority Leader.

That’s why Reid’s hosts obliged with subdued tittering. National news anchors selectively averted their gazes. The Asian American Journalists Association, so quick to issue sanctimonious guidelines for avoiding ethnic stereotypes, maintained radio silence. And the usual left-wing speech police who read racism into every word uttered by conservatives from “angry” to “Chicago” to “Constitution” to “Obamacare” saw and said nothing.

One bizarre group, Asian Pacific American Advocates, was only offended because they resent public attention paid to successful Asian Americans. They vented that Reid “falsely assumes that our communities continue to perpetuate the model minority stereotype, when we have been actively working to highlight the vast socioeconomic disparities within our communities.” These confused people have spent way too much time in social justice 101 classes.

Back in Washington, D.C., the usually garrulous Democratic chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), Rep. Judy Chu, responded by … not responding at all. CAPAC Executive Director Krystal Ka’ai did not return my email seeking reaction to the race-mocking Senate Majority Leader, who has now apologized for his “extremely poor taste.”

Chu and her ethnic grievance caucus — which pledges to “denounce racial and religious discrimination affecting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders” — did find time over the past year to:

–attack a Seattle theater production of The Mikado for its use of “exaggerated Asian stereotypes.”

–”denounce” comedian Jimmy Kimmel for a kids’ table skit that poked fun at America’s debts to China.

—demand the firing of Fox News liberal chucklehead Bob Beckel for using “racial slurs” against Chinese people.

Here’s another glaring omission by the Democrats’ whitewashers: Neither CAPAC’s press release archive nor its Twitter account has published a word about the ugly liberal racists in Kentucky who’ve repeatedly attacked former GOP Labor Secretary Elaine Chao.

Last year, left-wing super-PAC Progress Kentucky tweeted multiple China-bashing messages insinuating that Chao, the Taiwanese-American wife of GOP Sen. Mitch McConnell, was part of some conspiratorial plot to move jobs to Asia. The Progress Kentucky xenophobes denied engaging in race-baiting. But the dog whistle — dog trumpet — had been sounded, and the liberal racist hits keep on coming.

Earlier this month, Kathy Groob, a “progressive” supporter of McConnell’s Democratic opponent, Alison Grimes, repeatedly insulted Chao on social media as his “Chinese wife.” She’s “not from KY, she is Asian,” fumed Groob. You won’t be surprised to learn that Groob had complained copiously about “sexism” and “racism” by the tea party.

When will doormat minorities grow spines and stop protecting the progressives of pallor who denigrate them? Collectivism is a hard, cowardly habit to break.

‘Phony scandal’ update: Lois Lerner’s Blackberry ‘wiped clean’ of info after congressional probe began

**Written by Doug Powers

null

We still don’t seem to have reached that “smidgen of corruption” threshold where somebody — anybody — loses a job, a pension, or even a night’s sleep over this “phony scandal” that continues to reek more every day:

Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally destroyed after Congress had begun its probe into IRS targeting of conservative groups, a senior IRS lawyer acknowledged in a sworn declaration.

Thomas Kane, Deputy Assistant Chief Counsel for the IRS, wrote in the declaration, part of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against the IRS, that the Blackberry was “removed or wiped clean of any sensitive or proprietary information and removed as scrap for disposal in June 2012.”

That date – June 2012 – is significant because by that time, ex-IRS official Lerner had already been summoned before congressional staffers who interviewed her about reports of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.

I’m sure the current IRS commissioner will have a sufficiently smug response at the ready if he’s questioned about this.

Also, the IRS is now saying that Lois Lerner’s emails were never really “missing,” but were just being really cheeky and hiding from them.

I am not sure if it will work or not, but Democrat Mark Udall is clearly convinced that he can ride to victory campaigning against the notion that an unborn human is a person. Virtually every word out of his mouth and a substantial portion of his ad buys focus exclusively on defending the absolute legal right to kill the smallest and most defenseless people in America.

When Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) first ran for Congress in 2010, he supported a “personhood” ballot measure that voters roundly rejected that same year (even as they elected him to a conservative district). During his time in the House, he has supported or sponsored several other measures aimed at curtailing abortion rights, such as last year’s “Life at Conception Act.”

* * *

On Monday, Gardner released an ad that serves as 30-second Cliff Notes for his op-ed. He pretty clearly thinks that his past position on the personhood issue could hurt him in such a close and important race, and he’s trying everything to convince Coloradans that he won’t try and take away their birth control. Which is what Democrats and abortion-rights groups have landed on as an excellent attack.

Democrats were quick to pounce on personhood in this race. In late April, shortly after Gardner reversed course and announced a Senate bid, his opponent, incumbent Sen. Mark Udall (D), ran an ad detailing Gardner’s past support of personhood policies.

Setting aside the fact that Udall’s entire ad campaign on this issue has been flatly and willfully dishonest in its particulars, let us grant that Udall’s statement of Gardner’s position is correct, instead of a corrupt half truth. What then? Udall is willing to forge his way back to the Senate based on the entirely arbitrary concept that human beings of specific developmental stages are not people. Politically, it is convenient for Udall that the human beings in question are difficult to see without the aid of ultrasound, which Udall and virtually all the moral detritus that composes the modern Democrat party opposes women who want abortions having access to. But by now surely Udall has seen pictures of one of these himself. Surely even he has seen with his own eyes that what he supports killing has the unquestioned face of a human baby, to say nothing of its hands, feet, and other organs.

A person like Mark Udall who has no compunction about preserving his cushy spot in the power elite of government by allowing unborn children to be killed at all costs is a person who is utterly without moral compunction or compass at all. There is no doubt that if Mark Udall felt it were politically necessary to support the killing of infants up to the age of two, he would likewise support that with equal fervor. Mark Udall has no problems if his road to victory is paved with dead children, which raises the question of what, exactly, Mark Udall would have a problem with.

In two short months, Colorado must choose whether to reward this moral cretin with the wages of his cretinism. Let us hope they make the right call.

45/42 favorable ratings. In California.  This is not good news for Democrats, going into the formal 2014 election season: I mean, imagine how Obama’s doing elsewhere.

Mark DiCamillo, director of the Field Poll, said the trend is ominous for Obama, because the latest declines come from his base.

Support among California Democrats dropped 8 percentage points to 68 percent over the last three months. Approval was down 11 points in Los Angeles County and 7 points in the Bay Area, usually liberal strongholds.

“These are constituencies that have been strong followers,” DiCamillo said. But there’s “frustration in the president not getting his way in affecting policy in Washington.”

…and the word I bolded there is interesting. At first I thought that either DiCamillo or the reporter who wrote the article got the word wrong: it should be ‘effecting.’  But then I remembered: when a Democratic President is weak* it’s never his fault.  There are a lot of people out there with a vested interest in pretending that Barack Obama is a mere hapless spectator in the legislative process, mostly because then they don’t have to deal with the actual truth.  Which is, of course, that Barack Obama wants to direct the process; he’s just stunningly incompetent at it**.

Moe Lane (crosspost)

*I almost wrote that as ‘weak at setting policy,’ except that Barack Obama’s problems are considerably more comprehensive.  Indeed, only a basic respect for the office that the man holds keeps me from categorizing Barack Obama as ‘weakling.’

**This is actually easy to reconcile with the President’s extensive golf record.  Barack Obama clearly thinks that the executive authority of President is much like that of a ruling emperor’s: Obama’s job is to broadly set policy, and then the underlings are to scuttle around and do the actual work.  Alas, the man has clearly never studied Byzantine history, or indeed any kind of proper history at all: would-be absolute monarchs tend to have to work long hours.  The kings who get to occupy themselves with supermarket openings and good-will tours do so because they have been explicitly excluded from the decision-making process.

So, basically, if Barack Obama wants to get back to his golf games in peace then he’d better summon his party’s legislators and explain to them that from now on the President will pretty much automatically sign off on everything that Prime Minister Speaker of the House John Boehner proposes. Enough Democratic Senators will happily jump on that bandwagon to make that scenario actually functional.

Stephen King should thank his lucky stars he doesn’t live in Maryland.

A teacher in Cambridge, Maryland has been suspended from teaching, banned from school property, had his home searched, and been taken in for emergency medical evaluation because of a novel he wrote under a pseudonym in 2011, three years before he was hired.

 A Maryland middle school teacher has been placed on administrative leave after he allegedly authored two fiction books using a pseudonym, with one depicting a “futuristic school shooting.”

Members of the Dorchester Sheriff’s Office, the Cambridge Police Department and the Dorchester County Public School board have removed Mace’s Lane Middle School teacher Patrick McLaw for allegedly penning two books under the alias, “Dr. K.S. Voltaer.” One of the books, “The Insurrectionist,” depicts “the largest school massacre” in history,WBOC-TV reports. A second book from 2013, “Lilith’s Heir,” is also available on Amazon and is described as a sequel penned by “K Voltaer.”

As part of this epic overreaction the school where McLaw taught was swept for bombs and guns and police remain on duty there.

The Cambridge Police Department told WBOC that police presence at Mace’s Lane Middle School will continue “for as long as we deem it necessary,” adding that the police and sheriff’s department say there is nothing to worry about.

It would seem we, as a society, have reached a point where there it no action so stupid, so perverse, so small-minded in conception and pig-ignorant in execution that law enforcement officials at every level will not hesitate to carry it out and expect us to be grateful that they have again abused their authority.

The absurdity of this situation should be obvious even to even the dimmest of low-wattage bulbs. The novel depicts, according to Amazon.com:

On 18 March 2902, a massacre transpired on the campus of Ocean Park High School, claiming the lives of nine hundred forty-seven individuals–the largest school massacre in the nation’s history. And the entire country now begins to ask two daunting questions: How? and Why? After the federal government becomes involved, and after examining the bouquet of black roses that lies in front of the school’s sign, it becomes evident that the hysteria is far from over. 

Eight hundred twenty-five kilometres north of Ocean Park High School, situated in the suburbs of Phantom Park, Pacifica, is Krossephire Technical Academy. Having a student population that exceeds nineteen thousand, it is the nation’s largest school. Krossephire is known as a very structured, academically superior institution with very minor problems. At least, that was before the threats began. 

After Krossephire Tech begins receiving sinister threats foreshadowing the occurrence of a massacre substantially larger than that of Ocean Park, Agent Jessica Leigh Hearn and her federal investigative unit become involved and the severity of the situation only intensifies as they pursue a dangerous and intelligent killer who is as invisible as the government agency they work for. 

Amid the hysteria that inescapably follows, Keith, Nick, and Mitchel–three twelfth-year students at Krossephire Tech–intervene after Mitchel overhears a confidential conversation. As the administrative effort to conceal the terrorising occurrences rapidly begins to fail, the three begin to conduct their own amateur investigation that ultimately puts them into serious conflict with the federal government, the Krossephire administration, as well as themselves. Simultaneously, Jessica and her team discover that the events of Ocean Park and Krossephire Tech are interrelated. And as they follow the trail of black roses, they learn an interesting yet appalling story–a parallel of the shooter’s identity. And as Nick, Keith, and Mitchel struggle to survive their slowly deteriorating school, this teenage executioner makes known that he is not like typical school assassins. He is not a copycat killer. He is not a psychologically unstable maniac. He is intelligent and knows how to kill silently and without detection. His victims are not selected at random. He is after someone–and he will stop at nothing until he is face-to-face with the one person to whom he owes much retribution. However, he will not distinguish between those he hunts and those who get in his way.

It is nearly impossible to understand how anyone, much less someone with a badge and gun, could make the pole-vault of logic necessary to go from this novel to a decision that necessitated a teacher’s suspension, his home being searched, and a school being effectively locked down “for as long as we deem it necessary.” Unfortunately, this is not unusual. The Rutherford Institute’s John Whitehead has documented a veritable cornucopia of a kind of oppressive nonsense that even Kafka would have rejected as to fanciful for fiction:

Whether it’s the working mother arrested for letting her 9-year-old play unsupervised at a playground, the teenager forced to have his genitals photographed by police, the underage burglar sentenced to 23 years for shooting a retired police dog, or the 43-year-old man who died of a heart attack after being put in a chokehold by NYPD officers allegedly over the sale of untaxed cigarettes, the theater of the absurd that passes for life in the American police state grows more tragic and incomprehensible by the day.

This is not law enforcement. This is not public safety. This is garden variety stupidity of the most egregious sort.

President Obama Says “We Don’t Have a Strategy” on ISIS, Except He Does

“We don’t have a strategy yet” to deal with ISIS jihadists. That’s what President Obama announced to the world, including the terrorist army inflicting genocide on Christians in Iraq and Syria. But the reality is President Obama does have a strategy. He’s had one from the day he took office. Apologize for America, appease the radical Muslim world, and ignore the threat posed by jihad.

“We don’t have a strategy yet” to deal with ISIS jihadists.

That’s what President Obama announced to the world, including the terrorist army inflicting genocide on Christians in Iraq and Syria.

The worst part is, President Obama does have a strategy.  He’s had one from the day he took office.  Apologize for America, appease the radical Muslim world, and ignore the threat posed by jihad.

The latest news makes this crystal clear.  As Fox News reports:

President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News. . . .

The source said a policymaker "could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad."

In fact, unlike his predecessors in office, President “Obama generally was not known to come back to the intelligence community with further requests for information based on the daily report.”

In other words, he hasn’t been asking the kind of questions you would need to ask to formulate a strategy against these barbaric jihadists.

Instead, he’s been willfully ignoring the threat.  He has dismissively referred to ISIS as a “JV” terrorist team.  He publicly stated that you don’t “play whack-a-mole wherever these terrorist organizations may pop up.”

Now, we are seeing the results of that calculated strategy to deny, dismiss, and deflect the world’s attention away from the atrocities perpetrated by these evil terrorists.

Regardless of his reasoning for this strategy, his intent, or the fallacy of his preconceived notions about the world of radical Islam, it is the strategy that our Commander-in-Chief has implemented throughout his presidency.

His military killed Osama bin Laden, and he sanctimoniously declared al Qaeda “on the run” and with it the ideology of radical Islam.

He was wrong, but that was his tactic.

We now see the results of this strategy.  ISIS is slaughtering Christians in Iraq and Syria.  It has publically and heinously beheaded one Christian American journalist, and now there are reports of ISIS barbarically executing another American journalist.

It’s not time for a strategy, any strategy, to confront ISIS; it’s time of a change of course.  It’s time to recognize radical Islam, jihadists like ISIS in all their many forms and groups.

Whether it’s Hamas, or al Qaeda, or Boko Haram, or Islamic Jihad, or Hezbollah, or ISIS, we must confront the threat posed by jihadists head on.

President Obama must change his strategy.  Join us at the ACLJ as we demand President Obama defend Christians and stop ISIS before it’s too late.  Sign our petition today.

Obama has "a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture."
Glenn Beck

What should we do with Obama the racist?
"In Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, 'Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on,'
We need segregated buses. This is Obamas America."
Rush Limbaugh
