What Does the Christian Right Want?

Under the administration of George W. Bush, large majorities now understand the country has gotten off on the wrong track. People, reflecting on how the country is fairing under Bush, for the most part now believe that Bush is not competent, has not been truthful, and does not care about people like themselves. In fact, the polls say that only 29% of the American public holds a positive opinion regarding the job Bush is doing.
It might be surprising to view this as a positive sign for our country, but in one critical aspect, this is a very lucky break for Americans and the world. The fact that vast majorities have decided that Bush is a terrible leader means those working to create the Cult of Bush have been dealt a grievous setback. The mess that Bush and his cronies have made of everything also reflects on the conservatives that foisted him upon us and it demonstrates the complete bankruptcy of their vision for the country.
When George W. Bush was nominated for President, the Religious Right saw him as the leader that would finally bring the country under the dominion of God. Bush and his backers talked about how he had been chosen by God to protect the country. So when Pat Robertson, the head of the Christian Coalition stepped down after 9/11, the Christian Right saw this as a sign that Bush was now the leader of conservative Christians.
"I think Robertson stepped down because the position has already been filled," said Gary Bauer, a religious conservative who challenged Bush in the Republican primary. Bush "is that leader right now. There was already a great deal of identification with the president before 9-11 in the world of the Christian right, and the nature of this war is such that it's heightened the sense that a man of God is in the White House."
Although many people know the Religious Right is very influential in the Bush administration, not so many know what their goals are in the long run. Their goals are nothing less than the destruction of our democratic society and the imposition of a society that would harshly punish unruliness, dissent and any disobedience to the rule of the theocrats – those who they believe God put in charge.
During the 1990’s the Religious Right succeeded in uniting various strains of Christian fundamentalism to support the take over of the American government in order to impose a philosophy of governing known as Dominionism or Christian Reconstructionism. As Katherine Yurica noted, "Be aware that Dominionism is in fact, a brilliantly executed road that leads to total power."
Frederick Clarkson laid out the route that Christian Reconstructionism planned to use to gain power: they planned to rewrite history to say the founding fathers wished to establish a Christian nation rather than a nation ruled by laws created by free citizens.Continue reading "What Does the Christian Right Want?"

US Forces in Iraq Infiltrated by Aryan Nation

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, extremists are increasingly allowed in the US Army because the army is having a problem filling their recruitment targets. This is very bad, because what the army is doing is creating a whole group of Timothy McVeighs who are training for the coming race war.
An article in the National Alliance magazine Resistance urged skinheads to join the Army and insist on being assigned to light infantry units.
The Southern Poverty Law Center identified the author as Steven Barry, who it said was a former Special Forces officer who was the alliance's "military unit coordinator."
"Light infantry is your branch of choice because the coming race war and the ethnic cleansing to follow will be very much an infantryman's war," he wrote. "It will be house-to-house, neighborhood-by-neighborhood until your town or city is cleared and the alien races are driven into the countryside where they can be hunted down and 'cleansed.' "
He concluded: "As a professional soldier, my goal is to fill the ranks of the United States Army with skinheads. As street brawlers, you will be useless in the coming race war. As trained infantrymen, you will join the ranks of the Aryan warrior brotherhood."
When you hear someone talk about how good Bush is on terrorism, ask why the Commander in Chief is training terrorists to overthrow the US Government.

Ann Coulters, Angry White Women?

Now, Jay Leno should Know better then to have this crazy on his show, Jay you will not get a boost from the her appearance, and dose NBC thinks that it has to out Fox, Fox by lowering its self by laying down with dogs?

What is truly loathsome about Ms. Coulters is that she would not know the truth if she stepped in it! Moreover, the Media needs to call her on it. It is one thing to denounce her for the lire that she is and it another to not her on TV agene or print her newspaper column.

What, I find funny about the whole soutre sorted affair is that, a White Woman can get on National TV and say, what ever she wants, about whomever she wants wit no repercussions… If a Black Woman did the same thing, she would be labeled an ANGER BLACK WOMAN, and dismissed out right….But not Miss shit for brains

The media in this country better watch out, for it will not be long before their are out of a job. Because you do not need journalist to rubber stamp and reprint what Karl Rove, the Christian Right and the KKK ,want America to hear. Hay its Just One Brothers View….

Absurd political quote of the day

"[Liberalism]" is the doctrine that prompts otherwise seemingly sane people to propose teaching children how to masturbate, allowing gays to marry, releasing murderers from prison, and teaching children that they share a common ancestor with the earthworm. (They haven't yet found the common ancestor ... but like O.J., the search continues.)"-- Conservative pundit Ann Coulter, in her weekly column, 07 June 2006

Defining America Down

By Anonymous Liberal

Many years from now, when historians look back on this period in our history, I fear that they will describe it as the moment when the idea of America lost its resonance in the world, when America became just another country.

I've traveled enough to know that America has long occupied a unique place in the collective consciousness of people across the globe. The idea of America has long encompassed a number of adjectives: some complimentary, some derogatory, but all distinctive and uniquely American. America is viewed as a nation of unparalleled decadence, of conspicuous and unapologetic consumption. But it is also viewed as the land of opportunity, a place where innovation and industriousness are rewarded like nowhere else. People around the world have long complained of American arrogance and self-importance, but on some level, they understand why Americans are proud of their country. They grudgingly admit that America has, for most of its history, been a powerful force for good in the world.

Americans' sincere and earnest belief in their founding principles, in freedom of speech and religion, the rule of law and constitutional democracy, have popularized those concepts throughout the world. America's continued success and vitality have proven not only that a government based on such principles can survive, but that it can flourish. The power of the American dream is ultimately what doomed communism.

America has long been a country dedicated to leading by example. It has been a country that tries to hold itself to its own high standards, regardless of how its enemies behave. That's why there have been countless documented examples over the years of enemy soldiers seeking out American troops in order to surrender, knowing that Americans would not mistreat them. That's the idea of America boiled down to its essence. It's a belief that America, for all its arrogance and annoying self-righteousness, is a country that stands for something important. It's a country that very much believes in its own principles and endeavors heroically to live up to them. That kind of reputation did not develop overnight; it was earned, slowly and painstakingly, by the deeds and actions of countless Americans over many decades.

And it's exactly that reputation that the Bush administration has carelessly pissed away over the last four years. Confronted by a particularly brutal and unprincipled enemy, our leaders decided that our principles were the problem. They were just too confining. So almost immediately, the Administration began defining America down. Torture was essentially defined out of existence. Novel legal theories were introduced justifying the circumvention of long-standing prohibitions. International treaty obligations and rules of war were disregarded. The rule of law itself was up-ended--in secret, by executive decree. Many of the most celebrated American principles were hastily cast aside. Just yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the Pentagon has decided to omit the prohibition on "humiliating and degrading treatment" from the Army Field Manual on interrogation. Just add it to the list.

This defining down of American principles has not gone unnoticed by the rest of the world. They see a country famous for its embrace of freedom and individual rights spying upon its own citizens without warrants and locking away its own citizens without due process of law. They see a country famous for its humane treatment of captives building secret torture prisons, engaging in widespread abuse and humiliation of detainees, and using an off-shore prison at Guantanamo Bay as a way of circumventing its own laws and constitutional principles. And worst of all, they see a country that appears to have no more interest in leading by example, a country more concerned with getting itself out of prior commitments and finding ways to exempt itself from the rules. A reputation that took the better part of a century to earn may soon be little more than a memory.

If America ceases to hold itself to a higher standard than the rest of the world, it will lose any legitimate claim to exceptionalism. If America ceases to value and abide by the very principles that it introduced and popularized to the rest of the world, it will no longer capture the imaginations or influence the thinking of people outside of its borders. America will become just another country, remarkable only for its size and strength. It's time to stop defining American
