OK, Donald: Are You Eligible to Run for President?

Joe Kovacs reports at WorldNetDaily:

Is potential Republican candidate Donald Trump eligible to run for U.S. president?

The question comes in the wake of high-profile statements by the billionaire developer and Palm Beach resident who has suggested Barack Obama's presidency could be "illegal" if he does not release his long-form, hospital-specified birth certificate to prove he's constitutionally qualified to occupy the White House.

Sen. Smear Schumer

At Newsmax:

Sen. Charles E. Schumer briefly revealed his true face Tuesday as reporters listened to him instruct fellow Democrats in how to paint Republicans and House Speaker John Boehner as extremist Tea Party zealots in the budget debates.

“I always use the word extreme,” Schumer told his fellow Democrats. “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.”

Here is audio of Schumer caught on tape.

Trump: Obama Spending Millions to Hide His Past

Donald Trump "said during an interview with FoxNewsInsider that Barack Obama is having trouble with, and spending millions to fight, the ongoing questions about his birth, his birth certificate and his eligibility to hold office -- and the longer the issue goes on, the more [Trump] is convinced there are problems with the president's eligibility," reports WorldNetDaily.

Interview: Doug Giles on "Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls"

By way of introduction, Laura Donovan writes at The Daily Caller:

Like most parents, Clash Radio host and Townhall.com columnist, Doug Giles is proud of his children. His daughter Hannah helped take down ACORN in 2009, when she partnered up with James O’Keefe to produce revealing undercover videos. Giles’ other daughter Regis started the campaign Girls Just Wanna Have Guns, which, among other things, aims to instruct young women on how to protect and defend themselves against predators.

He has every reason to brag about his no-nonsense girls, both of whom partially inspired his new book, Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls, which provides 14 chapters on how to rear females in today’s world. The Townhall.com contributor advises parents to teach their girls classiness and the value of intellect, but it’s not all work and no play for the Giles clan. Giles thinks it’s important for young women to know how to hunt, fight, rebel, date decent guys and even party.

Here's the interview.

Democrat Senator: Tea Partiers "Don't Deserve Freedoms in Constitution"

At a pro-Planned Parenthood rally last Tuesday, Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey said: "Tea Party Republicans . . . don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give them to them anyway."

Note to Lautenberg: The freedoms in the Constitution are not gifts of senators or of Democrats or of fascist organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, whose ongoing legacy of blood is one of greed and violence against "the least of these." 

As the Declaration of Independence makes clear, Herr Lautenberg, these freedoms derive from the Creator, not the State, and it is on this basis that every single human being is respected as having been "created equal" and possessing "unalienable rights" to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Herr Lautenberg, sir, you are a menace. You, Herr Senator, are the way of holocaust.

Shame! You betray a profound and dehumanizing hatred against the American ideal. We Americans, however, under God, shall overcome such hatred, indignity, and vain philosophy. Death to fascism!

Sarah Palin and the Meaning of "Presidential"

Michael Hauschild writes at American Thinker:

From the perch of a humble patriot citizen in the heartland of America, I believe that Sarah Palin wants what I want -- our American life as our forefathers intended: A Constitutional Republic, with checks and balances in place.

If she can deliver this, she'll likely seek office; if she can contribute or support a candidate, she'll do that, too. If she can best serve on the periphery, that'll be the role she takes. She'll seek to save the country with her actions, not risk its destruction because of a lust for power.

TheDC: Donald Trump's Birth Certificate Strategy

Jonathan Strong writes at The Daily Caller:

Donald Trump has been thinking a lot about birth certificates lately. Indeed, he has made questions about Barack Obama’s birth certificate a pivotal part of his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

And it appears to be working.

One recent poll has Trump running fifth in the GOP field, just two points behind former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

NYC Pregnancy Center "Virtually Destroyed"

Hannity Flings Open Doors to Birth Certificate Questions

"Questions about Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, and specifically about his birth certificate, largely have been off-limits to many in the major U.S. media outlets over the last two years that it's been an issue, with show hosts only occasionally noting the question exists," reports WorldNetDaily.

"That suddenly and dramatically may be changing, after Sean Hannity used his Fox News show to plunge in with both feet, demanding, 'Can't they just produce it and we move on?'"

Video: Soldier Single-Handedly Beats Back 30 Taliban

Bachmann, Pearcey, and Iowa's Homeschool Vote

David Freddoso writes at Beltway Examiner:

Today's Wall Street Journal examines the "Iowa homeschoolers vote" noting that Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul and Herman Cain attended the annual lobby day for the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators yesterday.

Speaking of homeschooling, we The Pearceys have homeschooled our sons.

And Nancy in May has the honor of keynoting a North Carolina homeschooling conference expecting some 9,000 in attendence at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem.

Nancy's new book, Saving Leonardo, was taught to homeschoolers prior to publication. Saving Leonardo issues a challenge to liberate culture from its secular captivity.

We've seen that secular captivity at work in education and politics today, and it is not pretty. 

So when potential candidates for U.S. President court the homeschool vote in places like Iowa, this is a highly positive sign indeed -- for our culture, our politics, our education, and our children.

For understanding that "Homeschoolers can make a difference," "Well done!" to the Iowa Network of Christian Home Educators. Here's their website.

ACLU vs. Religious Liberty

In a must-read article, J. Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel Action writes at American Thinker:

Few leftist organizations in existence today can compete with the ACLU in terms of demonstrated hostility toward what the Declaration of Independence describes as "certain unalienable rights" with which Americans are "endowed by their Creator."

Democrats Continue Assault on Marriage

OneNewsNow reports:

In the wake of President Obama's decision to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act, liberal Democrats -- led by Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York -- have decided to take advantage of the situation and have introduced a bill to overturn DOMA, which restricts marriage to between a man and a woman. 

Nadler, ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and vice-chair of the LGBT Equality Caucus, reintroduced the supposed "Respect for Marriage Act" legislation in the Senate last week.

The result is a post-American administration that discriminates against the Creator and the Creator's norms for marriage and human sexuality. This isn't social change, it's social collapse. Here's the story from AP.

Herman Cain: Obama's Scrubbing of Christian Heritage "Intentional"

Drew Zahn reports at WorldNetDaily:

Businessman Herman Cain, a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2012, has criticized Barack Obama for disregarding America's Christian heritage, stating he believes the president's repeated omission of the phrase "endowed by their Creator" is "intentional."

"I have been able to get the pulse of the American people of not only what's in their head but what's in their heart," Cain told CBN News Correspondent David Brody in an interview. "What's in their heart is they love this country. They love the values upon which this country was founded, and they don't like it when the president omits 'endowed by their Creator' from reciting the Declaration of Independence."

Same-Sex "Marriage" Bill Fails in Maryland

It Was Supposed to Be Inevitable, But: "A bill to legalize same-sex 'marriage' failed Friday to win enough support for passage from the Maryland House of Delegates," reports LifeSiteNews.com.

This is great news and a profound defeat for those power groups and organized hatreds in society who presume to think they can create unalienable rights out of thin air.

Those rights are rooted in the Creator, not the state, not in victimology, marketing, nature, 51% of the vote, or San Francisco regressivity. This fact should be clear to any who have read and embrace the philosophic DNA of human liberty as set forth so brilliantly in the Declaration of Independence.

True compassion, not to mention healthy indignation, calls upon every free-thinking and free-living American to resist the pro-homosexualist campaign of discrimination against the Creator and against the Creator's norms for healthy human sexuality and the intrinsic, created embedded diversity of married life as between male and female.

Rage against the religious cult of the homosexualist machine! And rage for freedom in community with an objective, verifiable God and our fellow man -- and woman!

What Would Jesus Cut?

Religious and political liberal Jim Wallis asks a good question, but he gives an unbiblical, socialist, and therefore, false answer, writes Joseph Farah at WorldNetDaily.

If you consult the Scriptures, says Farah, you find not the government-centric collectivism of Wallis, but rather the economic and political self-reliance, self-governance, and even self-defense of Jesus.

"Self-defense?" you ask. Affirmative, says Farah, who then references Luke 22:36, where "Jesus admonishes his disciples to buy swords for protection even if they have to sell their garments to purchase them."

In addition, says Farah, the Bible is a "book that extols private property. It's a book that warns about the nature of government to steal from the people. It's a book that tells people to put their faith in God, not government. It's a book that teaches self-reliance and individual stewardship, not collectivism."

2,000-Mile "Defund Planned Parenthood" Bus Tour

Two pro-life groups have "launched a 4-day, 2000-mile bus tour to raise awareness about the need to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood," reports John Jalsevac at LifeSiteNews.com

Jalsevac also writes:

The “Women Speak Out: Defund Planned Parenthood” bus tour is led by Live Action president Lila Rose and former Colorado Rep. Marilyn Musgrave. It will include press conferences and rallies in 13 congressional districts.

Each stop will feature local pro-life leaders thanking Members of the U.S. House of Representatives who voted for Rep. Mike Pence’s amendment to strip Planned Parenthood of its over $300 million in federal funding, and targeting Members who voted against it.

The Senate is scheduled this week to vote on the measure. Pro-life groups with the Expose Planned Parenthood Coalition have launched an all-out effort to lobby U.S. senators to pass it.

Scott Conroy writes at RealClearPolitics:

As the 2012 presidential campaign begins to heat up after a sluggish winter, the stakes are high for the five prospective Republican candidates who will address a large crowd of GOP activists at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition forum on Monday night.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain and former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer will have just 10 minutes each to make an impression on the crowd of several hundred expected to gather for the event in Waukee, just west of Des Moines.

For decades, Planned Parenthood leaders made millions by killing unborn babies, even doing so to cover up the rape of children. Now gutsy young pro-lifers have proven PP commonly aids in child sex trafficking.

Update: Empty Chairs of Sharpton, Fauntroy, Morial

Caroline May reports at The Daily Caller:

The conservative chairman of the black leadership network Project 21, Mychal Massie, did not mince words Monday afternoon as he spoke at the empty chairs of his three would-be sparring partners -- Al Sharpton, National Urban League President Marc Morial and former D.C. Congressional Delegate Walter Fauntroy -- all of whom had been scheduled to debate him about the alleged racism in the Tea Party.

“It is nice to blame the white man, it’s nice to blame ‘Uncle Toms’ -- such as myself -- it’s nice to blame right-wing, extreme Republicans and conservatives. It’s easy,” Massie told his absent liberal counterparts. He was driving home the point that demonizing the Tea Party, which is unified by a desire for less spending, limited government and devotion to the Constitution, is not the answer.
