Choosing decline. Placidly Conservative. Silencing Fox. Crosses and secularism. No marvericks, just RINOs. Administrators first, students last.
Re: Peter Ferrara’s President Obama Chooses Decline for America:
Obama’s oath of office makes Bill Clinton’s statement that it
“depends on the meaning of ‘is’” look like straight talk. Though
technically not treason, the effect of governing from the
perspective of “world citizenship” is the same.

THE PRIME CRITERIA
Re: Robert Stacy McCain’s It’s Up to You, Upstate New York:
I am a Republican committeeman in Jefferson County and can tell
you that for myself, I look at the selection of Dede Scozzafava
as one more misstep by the Republican leadership on New York
State. I consider the choice of Pierre Rinfret as the
gubernatorial candidate in 1990 to have been the classic gaffe by
this party’s leadership. I will be voting for Doug Hoffman and so
will other Republicans I have spoken with. It is time that
“electability” stops being the prime criterion and instead
position on the issues is added to create a real two-horse team.
Hopefully we can see a real sea change in the political

Re: Jeffrey Lord’s FCC-Church Conspiracy to Silence Talk Radio and Fox?:
For sure let us pray. No one alive knows when Jesus is coming again, those who were alive during his crucifixion and return from the dead fully expected him to return during their lifetimes and all generations since have seen indications or claimed that his return is near. Certainly when his own Church, or at least many of those who claim to be such, are leading the charge against many of the principles that has made the US the most Christian-friendly nation in history it might well lead many to think the end is finally nigh.
All of this and a seemingly total retreat from the traditional
values of my Grandfather’s Methodist Church are mind-boggling.
Who would have thought that so many members of once respectable
Churches such as Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Methodist, and
yes even the Roman Catholic Church have gone either outright
tolerant or soft on such moral issues as abortion, homosexuality,
adultery, etc the list goes on and on. Now they are entering into
declared if not kinship, at least a partnership with this the
most un-Christian president and administration in the history of
our historic nation.

Sounds to me that the separation of “church and state” only is
mentioned when bibles are pulled out in public schools, or some
poor kid runs a prayer meeting at a public school and gets in
major trouble for it. The “transparent” Obama, who has never held
a real job other than to work for organizations that get some
sort of funding, has set about destroying every facet of our
Constitution to further their financial needs. As Rush often
says, “follow the money” and once again he is right. Anyone who
is so dim to think this is all being done for the poor,
minorities, gays, women animals or any other “protected” group,
had better take a deep breath and join the NRA asap!!

TAKING IT DOWN
Re: Ben Stein’s America’s Cross:
It would not surprise me in the least if the ACLU didn’t just
want to take down the crosses at Arlington National Cemetery, but
to pave the place over and use it for satellite parking at Obama
(formerly Reagan) National Airport!

It would be reassuring for Americans who are not Christians to stand with us. But, save for a voice or two such as yours, Ben, I don’t see that happening.
As to the hysteria the ACLU and others create, the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the church at Galatia of the “offence of the cross.” It offends those who know nothing about Jesus the Christ and His message. It offends those who would make themselves His equal or even greater. If offends those who hate Him. It’s not just that the world sees Christ as foolishness. It does.
But now it appears that our judiciary and legislators, including our current president whose profession of Christianity appears hollow and once politically expedient, as well as the now-state-controlled minion media, seem hell-bent to diminish, if not stamp out, Christianity.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
