Video: 2011 Miss Delaware -- "Abortion Is Murder"

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2012, 07:44 AM

John-Henry Westen reports at LifeSiteNews

Maria Cahill, the winner of the Miss Delaware 2011 contest, is using her new-found fame to promote the pro-life message. She participated in the March for Life as Miss Delaware despite opposition, according to an interview to be published in full in Townhall magazine.

In an April 2011 video just prior to her winning the Miss Delaware title, Cahill indicated she would be using her fame to save lives.

She described herself as “one of seven kids” noting that thus “my family is extremely pro-life and conservative.” She said that in college the topic of abortion is taboo and suggested one reason is the fact that “this is murder we’re talking about.” She added “People don’t use that word . . . it’s a vulgar term, but that’s what it is -- it’s murder.”

Bullies! Atheist Group Pressures City to Remove 91-Year-Old Memorial Cross

By Rick Pearcey • April 26, 2012, 09:37 AM

Caroline May reports in The Daily Caller on new efforts to oppress from an extremist group known as the Freedom From Religion Foundation:

An atheist group is pressuring Woonsocket, R.I., to remove a 91-year-old Latin cross located in the City of Woonsocket’s fire station parking lot.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) announced this week that they had sent a letter to Woonsocket Mayor Leo Fontaine requesting that the city not only remove the cross, but also scrub a memorial angel and prayer -- which they describe as “woefully out of date” -- from the fire department’s website.

According to the group, it is illegal for the city to promote any religion.

Somebody might point out to our atheist buddies that truth is never "out of date," "woefully" or otherwise.

A good example of this is the Declaration of Independence, which asserts the rationally and empirically verifiable truth (which arguably cannot be said of atheism) that "All men are created Equal" and are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights."

Or is the Creator "illegal," too, O Atheist Man?

Hold onto that cross, good citizens of Woonsocket. That cross represents the highest form of love, reason, and commitment against tyranny, whether spiritual, political, or "legal," including the inhumane tyranny of blind faith and of irrational atheism.

So, yes, there is another item that never goes out date: rebellion against foolishness.

Upshot? Sock it to 'em Woonsocketers. Resist. Live your lives fully. Resist and resist again! Maybe you can help pry open a closed-down atheistic mind or two. In return, you get to stay free.

Film: President's Father Not Barack Obama

By Rick Pearcey • April 25, 2012, 09:35 PM

Jerome Corsi writes at WND:

“Who’s your real Daddy?” is a question that remarkably continues to dog Barack Obama, even as he proceeds into his fourth year as president.

With the release this July of Joel Gilbert’s full-length documentary, Dreams From My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception, the mystery deepens regarding who Obama really is.

“The film provides the first cohesive understanding of Obama’s deep-rooted life journey in socialism, from his childhood to his presidency,” Gilbert told WND.

Gilbert rejects the official story that the Kenyan-born Barack Obama was the president’s father.

Instead, he argues, Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama.

Here is a trailer for Dreams From My Real Father.

Now Men Are Victims of Military Sex Standards

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2012, 08:55 AM

Bob Unruh reports at WND:

While the full picture remains far from clear, signs of the ill effects of the Democrat-initiated law allowing homosexuals to serve in the U.S. military without hiding their sexual preference are beginning to appear.

The newest reports, for Fiscal Year 2011, have just come out, and Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, immediately noted that sexual misbehavior is on the rise.

Democrats Are Jumping Ship

By Rick Pearcey • April 23, 2012, 07:43 AM

At Investors Business Daily:

Perhaps Democrats know something the rest of us don't about Barack Obama's political fortunes. What else explains the increasing numbers who are openly defying the president on two key election issues?

Liberal Views on Family Just Like USSR's

By Rick Pearcey • April 19, 2012, 10:03 AM

Svetlana Kunin writes at Investors Business Daily:

It took violent revolution and elimination of tens of millions of people to change culture in the republics of the USSR.

The government destroyed all religious institutions so any religious traditions and influences were eliminated.

They replaced the Ten Commandments with the Moral Code of the Builder of Communism.

Still, the family as the unit of the society could not be destroyed.

Amazingly, liberals in the capitalist countries found the way -- welfare.

Gingrich: Right to Bear Arms a Human Right

By Rick Pearcey • April 18, 2012, 08:22 AM

In a column at Human Events, Newt Gingrich states:

As the Second Amendment implies, the right to bear arms isn’t given to us by the government, and it isn’t just an American right.

It is a human right.

As a fundamental component of self-defense, the right to bear arms is intimately tied to those universal truths expressed in our Declaration of Independence -- that all men have rights to life and liberty, with which they are endowed by their Creator.

And they have not just a right but a duty to throw off despotic government.

Occupy: "All Pigs Must Die"

By Rick Pearcey • April 16, 2012, 08:51 AM

Lee Stranahan writes at Big Government:

We’ve told you in previous reports to expect the increasingly broke, desperate and nomadic Occupy movement to continue to make police the enemy and to make more flailing ‘direct actions’ in an attempt to stir up headlines. In New York City this weekend, they did not disappoint.

But Occupiers are concerned with far more than just police, according to Stranahan. "The Occupy movement is a nihilist attack on Western civilization," he concludes, "including the warm fuzzy organic white bread NPR eco-leftism of a modern American company like Starbucks."

"Natural Family" Prevails Over Family Haters in Anchorage

By Rick Pearcey • April 12, 2012, 10:57 AM

OneNewsNow reports:

Voters in Anchorage, Alaska, have handily defeated a proposed ordinance that would have provided special rights for homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals.

Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver says passage of Proposition 5, a measure placed on the ballot and supported by a collection of LGBT groups called "One Anchorage," would have put homosexuality on a par with race. But Anchorage residents turned it down, in spite of the fact that homosexual activists outspent those with traditional views 4-1.

The radical agenda animating the LGBT syndrome is profoundly uncharitable and inhumane. Bravo, Anchorage!

Court: TSA, Not Passengers, Deserves Privacy

By Rick Pearcey • April 11, 2012, 08:03 AM

Bob Unruh reports:

A federal appeals court has rejected claims by passengers and pilots that the TSA invaded their privacy and violated their rights by demanding pat-down inspections or full-body scans.

In fact, the ruling reported today by the Rutherford Institute affirms a district court ruling from Judge Henry H. Kennedy Jr., who cited a “secret” order from the TSA as the reason he rejected the cases.

The government, insisting that the “secret” order contains “sensitive security information,” has refused to make public the document outlining the procedures, according to John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute.

Media Dishonesty and Race Hustlers

By Rick Pearcey • April 10, 2012, 06:33 AM

Columnist Walter E. Williams writes:

On March 14 in Tulsa, Okla., a white couple suffered a home invasion by Tyrone Woodfork, a 20-year-old black man. Ninety-year-old Bob Strait suffered a broken jaw and broken ribs in the attack. His 85-year-old wife, Nancy, was sexually assaulted and battered to death, ending their 65-year marriage.

On March 4, two black Kansas City, Mo., youths doused a 13-year-old boy in gasoline and set him on fire, telling him, “You get what you deserve, white boy.” Last summer, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel ordered an emergency shutdown of the beaches in Chicago because mobs of blacks were terrorizing white families.

Several years ago, in Knoxville, Tenn., a young white couple was kidnapped by four blacks.

The girl was forced to witness her boyfriend’s rape, torture and subsequent murder before she was raped, tortured and murdered. Before disposing of her body, the three men and one woman poured bleach or some other cleaning agent down her throat in an effort to destroy DNA evidence. A jury found the four guilty, and they were sentenced, but because of the judge’s drug use, a retrial is being considered.

Williams concludes: "None of those black-on-white atrocities made anywhere near the news that the Trayvon Martin case made, and it’s deliberate."

Egyptian Cleric: It Is "Obligatory to Cheat at Elections"

By Rick Pearcey • April 9, 2012, 08:05 AM

Raymond Ibrahim writes at Frontpagemag:

Over and over, evidence emerges from Islamic nations that democracy and voting are instrumental means to an intrinsic end: the establishment of a decidedly undemocratic but draconian form of law—Islamic law, or Sharia.

Easter, Four-Letter Words, and the Facts of Life

By Rick Pearcey • April 6, 2012, 10:11 AM

The following reflection is taken from my article titled "Easter and Other Four-Letter Words":

For millions of people, the entrance of God into verifiable history in human form is cause for celebration. It began with that birth in Bethlehem, and it culminated with an empirically verifiable resurrection in space and time in Jerusalem. Here was an individual observably alive at point A, dead at point B, but then alive again at point C. Thus we have Easter, a rock upon which to build a house, a life, a city on a hill, and even an entire civilization, once the profoundly pro-human implications of the Judeo-Christian worldview begin to be understood and applied across the whole of thought and culture.

No one should be surprised that the consequences of factual events so amazing should cascade like fresh mountain waters over the centuries into new years and into new lives every year. Christmas becomes a time of joy and celebration. Easter becomes a time of doubt followed by certainty and then amazement. But for others it’s a different story.

King Herod’s is such a story. So is that of Pontius Pilate. Herod searched for the newborn king not to celebrate but to destroy a potential rival to power, and that is why he ordered the death of boys in Bethlehem “two years old and younger” (Matt. 1:16). Pilate had Truth staring him in the face when he asked Jesus, “What is truth?” (John 18:19). But instead of setting an innocent man free, a man in whom Pilate found nothing wrong, the Roman washed his hands and gave Jesus over to be crucified (Matt: 27:26), just as the religious establishment wanted.

Had Pilate really been honest in his question about truth, in a matter of days he could have begun investigating the ample evidence regarding the resurrection of the man about whom he found nothing wrong. His curiosity might have been stimulated, one would think, after hearing reports of strange goings-on at the tomb of Jesus. After all, a dead man usually does not unwrap his grave clothes, roll away a massive boulder blocking the entrance to his tomb, overcome sentries whose job (upon pain of death) is to ensure his body stays put, and then convince utterly defeated followers that he is the Lord of life.

One thing pretenders and outright liars seem to have difficulty understanding, whether they be corrupt religious leaders, maneuvering politicians, or enablers easy to command: Truth never dies, is never really defeated, even if you kill it.

Celebrations of Easter and Christmas in America today occur at a time and place far different from that of the countryside and politics of ancient Israel. And yet, there is continuity, for ours too is a time of celebration and praise — but also one of pretense and hatred and even persecution. That’s right. Persecution is the correct word, it seems to me, if we are to reflect sensitively a Biblical understanding of what is at stake in the world today.

Film: "October Baby" a "Quiet Hit," Says NYTimes

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2012, 06:13 PM

Melena Ryzik writes: 

As mass entertainment goes, the abortion debate does not typically count as good Saturday-night date movie fare; the subject rarely makes it to the mainstream multiplex.

But at a time when the issue is once again causing agitation in political circles, a small film, “October Baby,” about a woman who learns she is, as the movie puts it, a “survivor of a failed abortion,” is making a dent at theaters across the country.

Gov't Official Rebukes Bishops on Catholic Sexual Teaching: "You're not allowed to do that anymore"

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2012, 08:55 AM

Lifesitenews reports:

Catholic schools will no longer be allowed to teach the Catechism’s doctrine that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered,” says a cabinet minister in Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s government.

As politicians debated a bill that would force Catholic schools to launch gay clubs on March 29th, Member of Provincial Parliament Glen Murray (Toronto Centre) lashed out against Ontario’s bishops over Catholic teaching on homosexuality.

“I have to say to the bishops: ‘You’re not allowed to do that anymore,’” said Murray, an open homosexual who serves as McGuinty’s Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, according to the Hansard transcript.

Top Obama Campaign Donor Accused of Fraud

By Rick Pearcey • April 2, 2012, 08:33 AM

AP reports:

A major donor to President Barack Obama has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official, creating new headaches for Obama's re-election campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter.

The New York donor, Abake Assongba, and her husband contributed more than $50,000 to Obama's re-election effort this year, federal records show. But Assongba is also fending off a civil court case in Florida, where she's accused of thieving more than $650,000 to help build a multimillion-dollar home in the state -- a charge her husband denies.
