Obama’s War on Religion Causing States to Scramble

Apparently Obama’s war on religion is sending states scrambling to their state houses in order to head off this imperial president’s anti-Constitutional power grab. Ohio recently began seeking a religious freedom resolution and now Kansas is racing to put its religious liberty ideals into law. Others are sure to follow as Obama and his irreligious Democrat Party establishment are showing no signs of backing off the attack on Americans of religious convictions.

In fact, it is a pretty disgusting example of how anti-American that Democrats have become because at this point it is becoming a party-line vote neatly everywhere with Republicans coming out in favor of the American first principle of religious freedom while Democrats come out for oppressive, big government control over our personal beliefs and showing their desire to force religions to observe the liberal religion instead of their own consciences.

First Left-Wing Talking-Point Against Santorum: He’s ‘Big Government’

On his nationally syndicated radio talk show today, Rush Limbaugh noted that the left has launched its first major attack on Rick Santorum as a result of his close second place finish at the Iowa Caucuses. The new talking point against Rick Santorum is that he’s not as conservative as people think, that he’s a “big government” Republican.

So, is he? Is Rick Santorum a big government Republican. Sort of. But not really. You see, Santorum’s focus is in assuring the integrity of the traditional, nuclear family and he’s not averse to using government to secure those ends. He most certainly is not a Republican that leans toward a libertarian interpretation of what government should do — i.e. operate in a hands-off policy.

Santorum’s Post Iowa Caucus speech

James Pethokoukis makes some great points on this subject and outlays some of the arguments that Santorum makes and what they mean for conservatism.

Secret Meeting Among Iowa Conservatives to Stop Mitt Romney

CNN is reporting that on Monday, social conservatives met secretly in Des Moines, Iowa to discuss how to stop Mitt Romney from becoming the Republican presidential nominee. Steve Scheffler, who heads the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, concedes that if Romney is the nominee in the fall of 2012, that they will support him over Barack Obama. ″But he′s not making it any easier by basically ignoring us, or saying he doesn′t want to be around social conservatives and he′s opposed to or feels uncomfortable in those kinds of settings.″ Mitt Romney skipped the Thanksgiving Family Forum debate on Saturday, along with Jon Huntsman, which focused on faith and social value issues. The Romney campaign in Iowa generally has been lukewarm with a minimal presence.

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 Special Election Day

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 is Special Election Day across America. Being an off-year election, there are no Congressional or US Senate seats up for grabs. We do have two races for governors to watch, Kentucky and Mississippi. Gov. Steve Beshar (D-KY) is running for a second term against David Williams (GOP) and Louis Gatewood Galbraith, an Independent. There are also a number of important ballot initiatives which will be decided upon, including two Ohio elections issues. The two of national importance in Ohio are Issue 2, a referendum which would repeal Gov. John Kasich′s Senate Bill 5 that limits the collective bargaining power of public employee unions, and Issue 3, which would exempt the citizens of Ohio from the Obama-Care health insurance mandates. Needless to say, trade unions are pouring millions of dollars into Ohio to pass Issue 2, thereby further enslaving the Ohio taxpayers to fund government employees who earn twice the salary and have far better benefits and retirement packages than the private sector employees do. In Mississippi, Initiative 26 would define human life as beginning at conception, thereby banning abortion under under conditions. Two other initiatives, 27, would require voter ID at the polls and 31, would prohibit the state or local government from using eminent domain to seize private property.

In India, Finally Some PCism I Can Stomach!

India is one of the most important up-and-coming, capitalist democracies in the world. It is inches from being a true world power and in the ensuing years will become one, certainly. But India still has some stupid, backwards, ignorant cultural practices to shed before it can step into the circle of leading nations with true pride. This story highlights one of those practices.

Like many tribal, backwards peoples, India has a hatred of girl children. This is a holdover from the days when having a boy meant not only passing on your family line, but meant a strong back to work for that family. This is a holdover from the backwards days when a girl was seen more as chattel than as a human being in her own right. It is also because of a cultural economic problem when girls marry (see below). Unfortunately it is not a prejudice that sits in India’s cultural past. This disregard for women persists.

In fact, it is so bad that many thousands of baby girls a year are given the same name at birth. Many unfortunate girl babies are given the name “Nakusa” (or “Nakushi”) at birth. In Hindi this means, “unwanted.”

Obama Administration to Force No Co-Pay for Birth Control

The Obama Administration is looking to force health insurance companies to eliminate any co-pays for birth control, citing that such be considered as preventative care. This new mandate will cover a wide range of services, including breast pumps, birth control pills and devices, as well as counseling. Barack Obama had been forced to compromise such back during the ObamaCare debate in Congress to get enough votes for its passage. Kathleen Sebelius of Health and Human Services said ″Not doing it would be like not covering flu shots.″ Linda Rosenstock of the Institute of Medicine, which advises the federal government connects birth control as preventative medicine to stop unintended pregnancies, which she concludes will impact the psychological, emotional and physical health of women.

Conservatives, Tea Partiers Still Not Warming to Mitt Romney

CNN is reporting that the “Christian right” and the Tea Partiers are still nowhere near supporting Mitt Romney’s bid for the GOP nomination for president. Romney’s flip flopping on abortion, his full-on and continued support for his disastrous Romneycare health plan in Massachusetts prompting fear that he will end up supporting Obamacare if he wins, and other flip flops in his record have kept conservatives of many stripes away from supporting him.

Rightfully so, I should hasten to add.

Of course, Romney is leading far and away in most of the polls with Michele Bachmann currently coming in a distant second, so it is interesting to see the base still leery of a Romney candidacy. One has to wonder how the polls can show Romney so far ahead if CNNs report is correct on the base and it’s feelings against Romney. Perhaps these polls are really only based on name recognition even still and the real race has yet to begin?

Tony Perkins: Sarah Palin a Cheerleader

This weekend, the Values Voter Summit took place. As you may remember, prior to the event, the group was complaining that the Republican leaders were not paying attention to their issues any longer. Then, during their meeting, they held a presidential straw poll among those attending, the ‘leaders’ of the group.
