Vatican Crackdown on American Nuns

The Vatican will crackdown on American nuns for being too Liberal. Pope Benedict XVI is not happy about a U.S. nun organization, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Seems that they may be too open minded about subjects like homosexuality, abortion and euthanasia. The Roman Catholic faith in the United States is the largest single religious domination, with roughly one-quarter of the population as members. The LCWR claims it has some 1,500 members, a small fraction of the more than 55,000 nuns in America. The nun crackdown is being assigned to Archbishop Peter Sartain according to the Vatican report. This comes just as Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, IL, compared Barack Obama to Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin.

Obama Care Costs Spiral Up, $1 Abortion Surcharge

According to the latest calculations from the Congressional Budget Office, those non-partisan accountants of the CBO, the projected costs to the National Debt of the first ten years of Obama Care will be around $1.7 Trillion dollars, not the $900 Billion the White House said. This is bad news for Barack Obama, as the CBO has also upgraded the budget deficit for this year to $1.2 Trillion dollars. Even that number may be low considering how America set a new record for a one-month federal budget of over $260 Billion just in February. Meanwhile, the Department of Health and Human Services has made it official that there will be a $1 surcharge on all individual mandated health insurance policies to provide coverage for abortions as part of Obama Care. It just never ends, does it?

Santorum rejects JFK ‘Absolute’ separation between Church and State

GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Sunday said that the 1960 speech by John F Kennedy about the need for an ″absolute″ separation between Church and State makes him want to ″throw up.″ The JFK speech was made at a time when many voters were concerned that as a Catholic, Kennedy would consult regularly with the Vatican on issues. Santorum, who is also a Catholic, disagrees with JFK. Appearing on the ABC News Sunday talk show, ′This Week′, Santorum argues that it violates the First Amendment for the ″free exercise of religion.″ So once again, Rick Santorum is focusing on non-economic issues as his poll numbers sink.

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.

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.”
