True The Vote v.s. Holder In Austin

Hey, guess what? – Soon to be impeached Attorney General Eric Holder is heading to Texas to make announcement about voter integrity laws – because when he’s not lying about his agency’s  involvement in running guns to Mexican Drug Cartels, he’s making sure that American citizens no longer  have any confidence in voter integrity.  You see, to a Dem’s way of thinking, we should be focused on is voter disenfranchisement – (no, not disenfranchisement of military personnel overseas, silly!) Disenfranchisement of people who are  burdened by *the man* to show any form of I.D. at the polls. They say this type of oppressive, fascistic voter suppression harkens back to the Jim Crow South, and it will not be tolerated in ObamAmerica.  The DNC even launched a website to push back against common sense voter integrity laws with the Orwellian name: Protecting the Vote – (which would be better named “Protecting the Fraud”).

Anyhoo – at Big Government, J Christian Adams has issued an all points bulletin, alerting Texans to the news that the most corrupt and radical Attorney General in American history is heading their way:

On Tuesday, Americans will have a rare chance to voice their disdain of the corruption and lies flowing from this Justice Department.  They will have a chance to speak out against the radical and racialist law enforcement priorities of this Justice Department.  Eric Holder comes to Austin, Texas to make a major announcement about voting laws, probably to acquiesce to some loud demand of the NAACP to block state efforts to ensure voter integrity. But a counter-rally organized by Catherine Engelbrecht and True the Vote will greet Eric Holder’s appearance in Austin, Texas at the LBJ Library at 4 p.m.  America is invited, and here is a flier with details.

You have a First Amendment right to petition your government for redress of grievances.  Use it.  So rarely has so much been worth grieving.

As bad as Watergate was, it didn’t involve hundreds of murders, dead American law enforcement agents, and the illegal distribution of thousands of firearms.  How long has it been since an Attorney General appeared before Congress and words such as “contempt” and “impeachment” were used by members as they were last week?

The Fast and Furious scandal isn’t the only mess overseen by Eric Holder.  His entire tenure has been characterized by racialist radicalism, disguised to some critics as mere incompetence.  But it is far worse than incompetence, and to think otherwise is a mistake. From the dismissal of the voter intimidation case against racist anti-Semitic New Black Panther thugs, to the Mirandizing of battlefield captures in Afghanistan, Holder has presided over a systemic radicalization of the most powerful federal agency.  This isn’t incompetence.  It is radicalism.

Video: Newt Gingrich Invokes Reagan To Defend Telling The Truth About The “Palestinians”

Why Gingrich’s statement two days ago in which he called the Palestinians an “invented” people is considered controversial, is a mystery to me. Yet, in the GOP debate in Iowa Saturday night, Romney called Gingrich’s words incendiary and a mistake. Gingrich, to his great credit,  stood his ground.

“Somebody ought to have the courage to tell the truth: These people are terrorists,” he said. “They teach terrorism in their schools. They have textbooks that say, ‘If there are 13 Jews and nine Jews are killed, how many Jews are left?'”

Romney said such talk did Israel little good.

“Therefore, before I made a statement of that nature, I’d get on the phone to my friend Bibi Netanyahu and say, ‘Would it help if I said this? What would you like me to do? Let’s work together because we’re partners.’ I’m not a bomb thrower, rhetorically or literally,” Romney said.

So Romney is so timid, he would literally pick up the phone to ask “his friend Bibi” whether he should speak the truth about Palestine? Oh man….

Here’s the truth about Palestine:

More of the exchange between Romney and Gingrich at the debate, yesterday:

“I happen to agree with most of what [Gingrich] said, except by going out and saying the Palestinians are an invented people,” Romney said, calling Gingrich’s remark “a mistake.” But the former Massachusetts governor stopped short of actually weighing in on the issue of Palestinian peoplehood, referring the matter to Israel, which, Romney seemed to claim, should be the one deciding whether Palestinians are indeed a people.

“We’re going to tell the truth but we’re not going to throw incendiary words into a place which is a boiling pot, when our friends the Israelis will probably say ‘what the hell are you doing?’”

“Somebody ought to have the courage to say the truth,” Gingrich said after detailing a list of accusations against the Palestinian Authority, “These people are terrorists. They teach terrorism in their schools…That’s fundamentally time for somebody to have the guts to stand up and say ‘enough lying about the Middle East.’”

This line of argument seemed to play well with the conservative audience in Iowa, which responded with cheers to the comments by Gingrich.

He concluded his defense of his words by invoking Reagan:

“I think sometimes it is helpful to have a president of the United States with the courage to tell the truth. Just as it was Reagan who went around his entire national security apparatus to call the Soviet Union an ‘evil empire.’ Reagan believed the power of truth restated the world and reframed the world. I’m a Reaganite. I’m proud to be a Reaganite. I will tell the truth, even if it causes some confusion sometimes with the timid.”

The DNC apparently wants Newt to be the nominee to be saying that…

Your Sunday Hymn: Holy Is Your Name (Magnificat)

In honor of the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Mary Ever Virgin, Dec 8: David Haas’s beautiful Magnificat –


I usually prefer to hear that sung by a woman – because it’s Mary’s song – but this guy sang and played it so well. Just excellently done. Chills.

I offer also for your enjoyment, Magnificat by Johann Sebastian Bach. Conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt:


JS Bach’s Magnificat, is a canticle, a sacred music of praise by Mary, on learning she’ll give birth to Christ. Bach’s Magnificat brief history, and other information.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat, text from the Gospel of St. Luke, Chapter 1, Verses 46-55, is a sacred hymn of praise traditionally presented for Christmas. The original language is in Latin, a word for a canticle of the Virgin Mary (“My soul doth magnify the Lord”) as it appears in St. Luke’s Gospel. The first performance was in the church of St. Thomas in Leipzig, Christmas Vespers (1723).

Written by Bach in 1723, the first version was in E-flat major. It was revised in 1732 to form the second version in D major, the only one in existence today. Magnificat is composed of 12 musical numbers. The cast has five solo voices, five-part mixed chorus, flutes, oboes, trumpets, timpani, strings, continuo with cello, contrabass, bassoon, and organ.

Johann Sebastian Bach, (1685-1750), a German composer and organist, was born in Eisenach, Germany. He was a contemporary of George Frideric Handel.
