Why Democrats Going Down in November

By Rick Pearcey • September 30, 2010, 02:28 PM

Here's the link to "Why Democrats Are Going Down in November," a truly on-point column by Arnold Ahlert at Jewish World Review, read on-air by Rush Limbaugh across the EIB network today.

"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done" in Washington, Barack Obama once famously told Republicans on Capitol Hill.

With millions of Americans reacting in horror to what Obama has gotten "done" in Washington, and then imposed upon "We the People" against our wishes and in violation of the U.S. Constitution, let us all hope, work, and pray that Obama is right.

May all Americans "just listen to Rush" so Obama and his minions can't mess up our country any more than he and they already have.

Tyrant Watch: Presidente Obama Goes After Fox News

By Rick Pearcey • September 29, 2010, 08:39 AM

In response to the Strongman Wannabe's attack on Fox News as "destructive" to America, Jay D. Homnick writes at American Spectator:

To use the Presidential bully pulpit as a blunt instrument against a news organization, to label its approach destructive, to label its content destructive, that is -- to coin a phrase -- destructive.

Think back to our first clue that Hugo Chavez was an autocrat, bent on subverting those national institutions which did not refract his glory. It was when he came out against various newspapers and television stations, saying much the same things as our own El Presidente.

"This President has again set a bad precedent," Homnick concludes. "When I meet him next, in the polling booth in 2012, I hope it will not be too late to tell him what I think: 'Hugo!'"

"CSI" Smears Tea Party as Extremist

Extremist Obama Again Omits "Creator"

By Rick Pearcey • September 27, 2010, 04:31 PM

Terry Jeffrey writes at CNSNews.com:

Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word Creator when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men "are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights," President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the "inalienable rights"' that "everybody is endowed with."

It is imprudent to regard these omissions as accidents of history.

For Obama and the Democrats seek to "fundamentally transform" America. Absolutely essential to such an ignoble effort is to convince Americans that we really do not need the Creator as the basis for inalienable rights.

Obama's rhetoric and his governance constitute a direct assault, from within, on the intellectual, moral, and practical center of human freedom and dignity in the United States.

It is a presidency that lives in infamy. A hubris that towers and walks to and fro to see whom he might devour. 

And yet it is the fool who says in his heart, "There is no Creator who gives inalienable rights and the blessings of liberty." The fool says in his heart, "Washington giveth and taketh away."

Those who abide in the enduring American mainstream, who would live and think and breathe free, in community with God and man, must repulse this extremism and cast the offender into the political sea. 

Today the winds blow. The waters rise. The cadres of Obama and the enemies of freedom seek to re-enslave the captive set free.  

But we march on. We march forward. We march upward.

November comes. None too soon. November is now.

Poll: One-Third of Likely Black Voters Support What?!

By Rick Pearcey • September 24, 2010, 10:19 AM

The Tea Party.

Mark Tapscott writes at the Washington Examiner:

Considering that the liberal mainstream media has been peddling the view for more than a year that the Tea Partiers are just a bunch of angry white folks, the Pajamas TV survey finding of significant support for the movement in the Black community might be the most significant 2010 mid-term congressional election campaign story you haven't heard before today.

"If this pans out, it's a big deal," says Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.

Here's a video report from Alexis Garcia and pollster Vic Rubenfeld on Pajamas TV.

RINO Power or Tea Party Principle?

By Rick Pearcey • September 23, 2010, 08:16 AM

"Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell's victory over Washington establishment favorite Mike Castle raised an interesting question," says Christopher Chantrill at American Thinker. "Do we want just political power and 51 seats in the U.S. Senate? Or do we want to build a movement?"

Chantrill says, "Put me in the movement camp. It's not going to do the conservative movement any good to get back into to power without a mandate. The experience with the Bushes proved it. They took America as the found it; they didn't try to change it."

The larger point may be this: It's not just that wobbly Republicanism will do the conservative movement little good but that it does the American people little good. A go-along-to-get-along GOP lacks the needed Constitutional and Declarational foundations to demand change in the direction of  human freedom and dignity. That kind of change is not consistent with big secularist government centered in Washington and with tentacles in our cars, refrigerators, and living rooms.

What needs conserving -- and protecting and advancing -- is not the hard statism of liberalism or the slower road to hard statism of squishy Republicanism. No, what needs "conserving" is the fight for freedom and unalienable rights endowed by the Creator -- just as the timeless, true, and living content of the Declaration proclaims.

Keyes Calls Out Rush on "Gay" Marriage

By Rick Pearcey • September 17, 2010, 07:08 AM

In "Rush to Judgment on 'Gay' Marriage," Alan Keyes writes:

As I heard it in a clip played recently on Steve Deace's show on WHO radio in Des Moines, Rush Limbaugh has now openly joined the moral shrug-meisters who dismiss the issue of gay marriage.

Like Glenn Beck, he casually denies the damage done when a society purports to redefine marriage (that is, the institutional foundation of family life) in a way that denies the relevance of God endowed natural right.

Mr. Limbaugh would, I'm sure, disclaim any desire to cast aside the principled basis of the U.S. Constitution.

But, as I have pointed out before, the family is the primordial paradigm for all property rights, which is to say, all human claims to physical belongings.

If the government is not obliged to respect the rights of the natural family, this implies that it has no obligation to respect any property rights whatsoever.

Keyes concludes:

Rush Limbaugh may think that the reasoning that connects the issue of gay marriage with the destruction of property rights is somehow faulty, incorrect or irrelevant.

If so, I would welcome a chance to discuss the subject with him in a public forum that would allow others as well as myself to benefit from his instruction.

If it is superior understanding that leads him to be so casual about an issue that seems to affect the very foundation of our liberty and civilization, it would be deeply ungenerous of him to refuse to share it with the rest of us.

If, on the other hand, he does so through ignorance, or a lack of careful thought, then at this critical and decisive juncture in our nation's history, a special responsibility falls to someone to whom God has loaned the important public platform he daily occupies.

For the sake of the nation, I hope that Mr. Limbaugh will carefully ponder the nature of this responsibility.

Christine O'Donnell Campaign Responds to Poll Turnaround

By Rick Pearcey • September 13, 2010, 07:52 AM

Posted at the "Christine O'Donnell for U.S. Senate" Facebook Page:

Be wary of polling. All we know is that we are within the margin of error. This race could still break either way. Do not become complacent, or assume that this race is over.

To those who question whether or not we can win the General Election, ask yourself where the incumbent Congressman was in the polls only a few weeks ago, and look where he is today.

Noting that Senate hopeful Mike Castle's "popularity has taken a sharp turn n the wrong direction over the last month," Public Policy Polling says the race is now "Too Close to Call."

I was wondering whether the O'Donnell campaign might see such a late-breaking turnaround. The GOP Senate primary in Delaware is tomorrow, Tuesday, September 14.

Practice Tolerance, Infidel -- or Else!

By Rick Pearcey • September 10, 2010, 09:01 AM

Michelle Malkin writes:

Shhhhhhh, we're told. Don't protest the Ground Zero mosque. Don't burn a Koran. It'll imperil the troops. It'll inflame tensions. The "Muslim world" will "explode" if it does not get its way, warns sharia-peddling imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Pardon my national security-threatening impudence, but when is the "Muslim world" not ready to "explode"?

Comment: Violence, even if couched in appeals to tolerance, is the logical endgame of any "faith" (religious, political, scientific, or philosophical) that has carved out for itself an enclave that is untouchable by reason, evidence, and the need to correspond to life in the real world.

Such "faith" is the application of coercion, up to and including physical violence, by other means. Such "faith," as a mere "value statement," is anti-mind, anti-freedom, anti-Man, and anti-God.

It is either the self-inflicted violence of irrational commitment or the other-inflicted violence of hand-grenades and jets into skyscrapers. And politicians, including U.S. presidents, who buy into such a faith will find themselves setting up a machinery of oppression to protect their power from facts, questions, checks and balances, and other legitimate protections against abuse.

In contrast is the openness to verification, and therefore the humanity, of the Founding vision as expressed in the Declaration and safeguarded in the Constitution.  It is a vision of human beings as individuals called to think and act on the basis of that which is true to reality, not as a blind leap, but as a commitment of the whole person on the basis sufficient, verifiable information.

This provides an adequate philosophic basis for both intellectual and political freedom. Apart from it is the kind of personal, intellectual, and cultural fragmentation, and therefore, weakness, Nancy Pearcey has written about in the just-published Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, and Meaning.

Consistent with the Declaration worldview, this humane vision is rooted ultimately not in "religious" "values," blind matter, impersonal nature, nor in an absolute eternal nothingness that burps alien human beings into existence by chance, but in a knowable Creator who thinks, acts, and feels, and who acts into verifiable history so that free-thinking individuals can evaluate competing truth-claims (in religion, politics, science, or philosophy) for their fidelity to reason and fact and for their ability to explain the phenomena under question.

Tolerance apart from truth is slavery.

Politico: New Polls Point to Tsunami

By Rick Pearcey • September 7, 2010, 09:49 AM

But Will It Matter? "With just two months to go before the November elections, pollsters and political scientists are predicting a blow-out loss for Democrats that could rival the Republican Revolution of 1994," writes Mike Allen at Politico.

But even if a tsunami occurs, there will be genuine progress only if a resurgent GOP advances on the basis of the freedoms and responsibilities set forth in the Declaration and Constitution.

For it is one thing to reject the corrupt and statist status quo rooted in a secularist belief system, a status quo to which both major political parties have contributed.

It is another thing to replace the current failure with a superior vision based on reality-oriented information given and verified in history by the Creator, who the American Founders respect as the transcendent ground of unalienable rights, as clearly articulated in the Declaration of Independence.

The Democrat Party is, of course, welcome to re-enter the American mainstream, but Obama & Co. show no interest in doing so.

Paper: Out of the Mainstream Obama "Breaking America's Spirit"

By Rick Pearcey • September 6, 2010, 10:37 AM

An editorial in the Augusta Chronicle asserts, "Voters bought into a disastrous president -- despite all the warnings."

It is crucial to understand, as we first argued here, that both Obama and much journalism today are clearly and decidedly -- and, therefore, destructively -- out of the defining and enduring American mainstream. They are part of the problem. They are not part of the solution.

That essence of the American mainstream is rooted not in secularism or in liberalism (or in a secularized version of "conservatism"), but in the only known adequate basis for human freedom and dignity, and, therefore, for political liberty.

This, of course, is the Founders' vision, rooted and sustained by the living waters of a real Creator who gives real unalienable rights in the real world. Without this in place, the content of the Declaration falls to the ground, and the Constitution has nothing of substance to protect.  

Any society that rejects that mainstream cannot help but slide into varieties of unfreedom and indignity. Whether quickly or slowly, whether by coup, corruption, or cultural decline, it is really only a matter of time plus crisis (taken advantage of by greedy politicians) before a once-free people become beggars in chains waiting for an all-powerful government to provide another round of stimulus, milk, and honey.

Either that, or resist. Either that, or find the rock of freedom and stand.

Today marks the beginning of "Launch Week" for Nancy's Saving Leonardo.

We look forward to seeing some of you at the U.S. Capitol Vistors Center at noon today. And we will do our best to keep you updated on interviews, media appearances, and other goings-on regarding this new book, which is a "call to resist the secular assault on mind, morals, and meaning." 

Thanks to all for the great interest and support we've already received for Saving Leonardo.

"Well, it’s just amazing to me," CNSNews quotes Dever as saying. "Course, I have about as much regard for the U.N. as I do the vermin that hides in the rocks around my house here and reaches out and tries to bite me every now and then."
