MSNBC cuts every speech made by a minority from RNC speech coverage
When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.
MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black.
Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech.
And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too.
Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.
Will MSNBC conveniently manage not to show …. Read the rest on Red Alert Politics

Obama versus Jesus: Black Christians Must Decide
By Lloyd Marcus
A poll claims that Romney will receive zero percent of the black vote. Well, if the poll proves correct, it means that a vast majority of black voters are ignorant of the truth…or else they’re racist.
Black Christians who vote for Obama knowing his crimes against Christianity and biblical principles have chosen to worship the idol of racial loyalty over their discipleship to Jesus Christ. Pure and simple.
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” -Exodus 20:3
Incredibly, some blacks have completely forsaken their Christianity for Obama. A fellow PK (preacher’s kid) said her parents recently changed their stance on same-sex marriage in support of their black president. I find this remarkable.
Though I disagree, I have been sympathetic and understanding with black seniors who have suffered dearly, with hearts still bearing scars of racial injustice.
A year or so ago, I hosted the first Black Conservative Press Conference at the National Press Club in D.C. Several prominent black conservatives from numerous black conservative groups/organizations spoke. My brother brought my 84-year-old black dad from Baltimore. That evening, Dad said, “Everything I heard today is true. But, because of racism I suffered in my youth, I can not turn against Obama.”
At that time, I respectfully gave my hero, my preacher dad, a pass. Some may criticize me, saying, Lloyd, either you stand for conservatism or you do not. While you may have a valid point, it is in my DNA to respect my parents. How do you respectfully tell your usually character-driven parent that his decision to support Obama, no matter what, is rooted in racism and a refusal to forgive?
But now that Obama has been exposed as the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history, senior black Christians must no longer be given a pass for supporting this man.
At stake is something extremely important: their fellowship with Christ versus an idolatrous worship of skin color.
Obama versus Jesus. “[C]hoose you this day whom ye will serve[.]“ -Joshua 24:15

(Photo: REUTERS/Robert Galbraith)Arizona Governor Jan Brewer speaks at a news conference following a hearing over the state’s SB1070 immigration law at the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, California November 1, 2010.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed into law a bill that allows the establishing of elective classes that focus on the Bible and its influence on western civilization.
Sponsored by State Representative Terri Proud, House Bill 2563 was passed by a 21 to 9 vote in the state Senate last Thursday and signed by Brewer on Tuesday.
According to HB 2563, “A school district or charter school may offer an elective course pertaining to how the Bible has influenced western culture for pupils in grades nine through twelve.”
“A teacher who instructs a course offered under this section in its appropriate historical context and in good faith shall be immune from civil liability and disciplinary action,” reads the bill.
The Bible class elective would teach students, among other things, “the contents of the Old Testament and the New Testament,” “the history recorded by the Old Testament and the New Testament,” and the……. Read the Rest on the Christian Post HERE

OH NO HE DIDN’T…OH YES HE DID! Juan Williams attacked Ann Romney after her lovely convention speech as a “corporate wife” who can’t identify with American women because she’s “rich.” The backlash was fierce across social media. Watch the video
John 8:32 (KJV)
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success
unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over . . . Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” ~ Joseph Goebbels
Some months ago I wrote an article, the underlying point of which was that facts are facts. In order to get anywhere as a nation, our voters must be able to compare relevant facts on both sides of the issues of the day. As voters we do know that if you don’t have the facts on an issue, one is likely to deflect attention from your weak hand by using the techniques mastered by National Socialists in the 1930s and ‘40s to demonize their opponents or blatantly lie regarding an issue.
Are you kidding me?
Defense Department authorizes Muslim cadets’ wearing of hijabs, turbans
New Year’s is still a week off, but the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is already popping corks over its latest “victory.” The self-styled Muslim civil liberties advocacy group is in receipt of a letter from the U.S. Defense Department affirming that Muslim and Sikh students in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) will henceforth be permitted to wear Islami……….

Black lawmakers lash out at ex-Rep. Davis ahead of RNC speech
By Daniel Strauss - 08/28/12 09:49 AM ET
Black lawmakers on Tuesday expressed their “disdain” for criticism of President Obama by one of their former colleagues.
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus accused former Rep. Artur Davis (Ala.) of political opportunism in an open letter released the same day Davis, a formerly Democratic lawmaker, will address the Republican National Convention.
“We are writing to express our disdain over several recent comments you have made about the important issues facing voters in November, your total distortion of President Barack Obama’s record and your complete flip-flop on certain core principles you once held dear,” the lawmakers write.
“Given the magnitude of your recent transformation, we can only conclude that, rather than a true conversion, your actions are the result of a nakedly personal and political calculation or simmering anguish after failing to secure the Democratic nomination for governor of the State of Alabama in 2010,” the letter continues.
Davis switched parties and turned up his criticism of Obama after losing a bid to become Alabama’s governor. Davis had been a fan of the president, and spoke on his behalf at the Democratic convention in 2008.
The letter also notes that when he was a Democrat, Davis criticized Rep. Parker Griffith (Ala.) in 2009 for switching from the Democratic to the Republican Party.
It also said Davis had criticized voter ID laws as a Democrat but then, as a Republican, said such laws don’t “suppress minority voter turnout.”
“You also may recall that less than two years ago, you routinely touted your progressive record as a member of the House of Representatives,” the letter says.
“We have come to the disturbing conclusion that your recent public statements have no basis in real policy or political disagreements, but rather they stem from transparent opportunism and a personal determination to overcome failing to win the Alabama Democratic primary for governor in 2010,” the letter reads.
Read the letter below:
C/O Republican National Convention
401 Channelside Drive
Tampa, FL 33602
We are writing to express our disdain over several recent comments you have made about the important issues facing voters in November, your total distortion of President Barack Obama’s record, and your complete flip-flop on certain core principles you once held dear. Given the magnitude of your recent transformation, we can only conclude that, rather than a true conversion, your actions are the result of a nakedly personal and political calculation or simmering anguish after failing to secure the Democratic nomination for governor of the State of Alabama in 2010.
Despite recent news reports that you sought advice from a Virginia political consultant about running for office as a Democrat, you currently proclaim to have switched to the Republican Party. However, in 2009 you repeatedly criticized former Representative Parker Griffith for the same act, saying, “his decision repudiates the hard work of many Democrats who sustained him during his election to two high offices.” You continued, “He leaves a party where differences of opinion are tolerated and respected to join a party that in Washington, marches in lockstep, demands the most rigid unity, and articulates no governing philosophy beyond the forceful use of the word, ‘no.’”
It’s unconscionable that you now claim Voter ID laws do not violate civil rights or suppress minority voter turnout. Yet in 2007 while still representing Alabama’s 7th congressional district, you joined then-Senator Obama in calling for the resignation of the Justice Department’s Voting Rights chief after he claimed that Voter ID laws did not hurt minorities, saying, “you can’t argue that voter ID laws don’t disfranchise African-Americans.”
You also may recall that less than two years ago, you routinely touted your progressive record as a member of the House of Representatives. You supported the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Wall Street reform bill, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and ending tax subsidies for oil companies. Despite voting against the final bill, you even supported major pillars of the Affordable Care Act like banning discrimination against pre-existing conditions, expanding Medicaid, and providing tax breaks to small businesses that provide health care, to name a few.
Contrary to your recent declarations, you hailed President Barack Obama as a “beacon of leadership,” touted President Obama as your “model,” and widely described the President as a friend. As a member of the House of Representatives, you supported President Obama’s agenda 95% of the time, were quoted saying “I agree with him on everything,” and repeatedly invoked President Obama in your failed gubernatorial campaign.
It is important that the American people have these important facts and draw their own conclusions about your true motivations for speaking at the Republican National Convention. We have come to the disturbing conclusion that your recent public statements have no basis in real policy or political disagreements, but rather they stem from transparent opportunism and a personal determination to overcome failing to win the Alabama Democratic primary for Governor in 2010. We regret that you have chosen this course, but are confident that the American people see your pronouncements for what they are and come to the same disappointing conclusion of your former colleagues.
