Well, two for four. Eh.

Then there is PopLyfe:

I mean I like the back story on these kids & they are talented BUT Vegas? Kids in Vegas? I don’t think so.

The same goes for Silhouettes. Although they seem to be a favorite & they are unique & gifted, Vegas?!

So I’ve come to the belief America voting on ANY of these shows is a farce. IMHO I believe the judges are ‘told’ what Vegas is looking for. Predetermined. So I give up on voting on any of these shows. I will root if I watch. But your heart is not in it when you feel ‘The fix is In’. It’s no different to me with American Idol or DWTS. Eh.

~ The only saving grace will be if somehow Landau does win. Then I will believe, JUST maybe it’s legit. ~ JP

I watched this today on the 700 Club & was interested in what Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice spoke about the 9/11 10th anniversary service’s lack of clergy. Starts @ 2:54. I wanted to share it with you. ~ JP

However, critics say his clergy ban shows a prejudice against religion.

In a speech Tuesday on the 9/11 terror attacks, Bloomberg said the hijackers did more than target two buildings.

“They attacked the freedom that defines our city and country. The freedom to think and speak and worship and love as we wish,” he explained.

Bloomberg’s barring participation by faith leaders in the city’s 10th anniversary service has sparked protests from a variety of Christian leaders.

“At times of grief people don’t turn to politicians, they turn to God. So having clergy there who can both lead people before God and also grant them comfort in their time of grief, I think is extremely important,” Ken Klukowski, director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, told CBN News.

The Family Research Council and other groups have organized petition drives to protest the mayor’s decision.

Other leaders — like Rev. Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention — have questioned Bloomberg, especially because so many faith groups were among the first responders 10 years ago.

Even a Los Angeles Times editorial noted, “If a minister can deliver an invocation at a presidential inauguration, it’s hard to see a constitutional argument against a non-denominational, clergy-led prayer at a city’s memorial event.”

Religion has certainly been a part of other 9/11 memorials, most notably the service at the National Cathedral right after the attacks. President Obama is scheduled to speak at the cathedral this weekend at an anniversary service.

Critics of Bloomberg point out the nation has turned to God in times of need throughout its history.

“When America and the allies invaded Europe on D-Day in 1944, President Roosevelt led the nation in prayer on a national radio broadcast for 10 minutes asking for blessings for our troops. So this is not a partisan issue and it’s not just a current fad,” Klukowski said.

~ It is so important to think about what Jay said:


“Obama etal is deliberately sanitizing 9/11 & Bloomberg is following this lousy admin’s lead on this.”

“Obama sent down a memo, which is getting little reporting (SO PLEASE share this with your social media, friends, family, etc.).”

This one tricked my trigger where I was yelling @ the TV. FIRST RESPONDERS are NOT allowed either!!! At this point Pat himself was livid.

Jay went onto say:

“This administration does NOT want to acknowledge the fact WE WERE ATTACKED on 9/11 by RADICAL ISLAMISTS.”

“Bloomberg has supproted the GZ mosque BUT is prohibting clergy & prayer on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11!”

This from FOX Radio:

National Cathedral Invites Muslims, but Not Evangelicals to 9/11 Service

A weekend of religious-themed observances at Washington National Cathedral marking the tenth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks will include a Buddhist nun and an Imam, but not an evangelical Christian, leading the head of the Southern Baptist Convention to ask President Obama to reconsider attending the event.

“A Call to Compassion” will include an interfaith prayer vigil on Sept. 11th. It will feature the dean of the Cathedral, the Bishop of Washington, a rabbi, Buddhist nun and incarnate lama, a Hindu priest, the president of the Islamic Society of North America and a Muslim musician.

However, Southern Baptists, representing the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, were not invited to participate – and neither were leaders from any evangelical Christian organization.

“It’s not surprising,” said Frank Page, president of the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee. “There is a tragic intolerance toward Protestants and particularly toward evangelicals and I wish the president would refuse to speak unless it was more representative.”

:: Carney Squirms and Wiggles Around How Obama ‘Jobs Bill’ Will Be Paid For ::

Asked by ABC News’ Jake Tapper and other White House reporters how President Obama plans to pay for his jobs plan, White House press secretary Jay Carney continued to dodge the question and give an answer.

Tapper inquired if the White House planned to use tax increases and Carney said “no, it will be specifically paid for.

CBS’ Norah O’Donnell asked if the plan will be paid for with immediate cuts. Carney says “I said it would be paid for.”

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s national security advisers remain concerned that terrorists will use the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks to stage new acts of violence — this time possibly with an eye toward avenging the May 2 killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

The four months following the U.S. special operations raid in Pakistan might have provided violent extremists just enough time to plan and assemble at least a rudimentary strike, just as Americans pause to reflect on the loss of nearly 3,000 people to terrorism a decade ago, according to government officials.

“If you have an organization like al-Qaeda, it’s not like they keep [bombs] around in a hangar,” a senior U.S. military official told Global Security Newswire in a July interview. “So it’s likely that there is a delay after having this [bin Laden killing] happen” before a significant revenge attack could occur, said the official.

The high-level military figure requested anonymity to allow more candor in discussing sensitive national security issues.

:: Al-Zawahiri Calls for New Strikes on U.S. ::

Bin Laden’s successor, Ayman al-Zawahiri, released a video message four weeks ago asserting that “America today is staggering” and urging followers to “hunt her down wherever you may encounter her”

If there is any specific new intelligence pointing to a viable terror plot, though, administration leaders are not discussing it publicly

URGENT: A 22-year-old Navy medic suspected of making a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of a {San Clemente} California high school turns himself in to authorities.

~ In case you missed it…

Missing Navy medic left writings claiming he planted explosives:


Navy Medic Suspected of Making Bomb Threat Aimed at High School Surrenders to Authorities

The Navy medic suspected of writing a bomb threat that forced a California high school evacuation Wednesday has surrendered to authorities, Master Sgt. Mark Oliva, a spokesman from Camp Pendleton confirms to Fox News.

The suspect, Daniel P. Morgan, 22, was stationed at nearby Camp Pendleton, but was considered AWOL after not showing up to work Wednesday morning. Authorities immediately searched his home located off base and say they discovered the writings that indicate that he may have placed some explosive devices in or around the San Clemente High School, the intended target.

At around 8:45 a.m. local time the alleged bomb threat was discovered by Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, the base said in a statement. The camp said it is working with authorities on the investigation.

While authorities did not find any explosives on an initial sweep of the school, and nothing had been stolen from Camp Pendleton, they said they are taking the threats very seriously.

Around noon Wednesday Jim Armorino, a spokesman from the Orange County Sherrif’s Department said that the campus was secure. Students have since been released to return home.

“He could have access to explosive devices,” Amormino told Fox News.

“We have every available bomb-sniffing dog in the county here searching room by room,” he said.

The entire student body was evacuated to the stadium after it was determined safe. The school has 3,200 students. The military base is a couple of miles from the high school.

It was unclear if Morgan had any prior relationship with the high school.

Generational Wealth Redistribution: Dem Congressman Brad Sherman Admits The Estate Tax is Government Designed to Stop Families From Keeping Their Money:

Obama’s 70 Congressional Socialists That Should Scare Us All!

From: AmeriPac

ALERT: A massive sleeper cell of socialists who seek to undermine the Constitution and remake society have infiltrated our highest levels of government! In October 2009, the Democratic Socialists of America released in its newsletter a list of 70 members of the U.S. Congress who are members of the organization:

Their hidden goal is to use American institutions to destroy America–like a poisonous cancer.

Far fetched? I don’t think so. Democratic Socialists of America released the names of 68 current socialist members of Congress posing as “liberal democrats.” Here are a few names you may recognize…

* Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)
* Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT)
* Rep. John Conyers (D-MI)
* Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)
* Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA)
* Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL)
* Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY)
* Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
* Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA)

That is only the beginning of the list. To see the full list of socialists who have been exposed for their treason click here.

What do all these socialist crusaders have in common? BARACK OBAMA !

Get Rid Of The Socialists In Congress!

IMMEDIATE HELP NEEDED – SIGN THE SOCIALISM PETITION & TELL CONGRESS CLEAN HOUSE- NOW!

From AmeriPac:

That’s not all. Obama has the full support and backing of the socialist party. He even signed a contract with them to ruthlessly advance their agenda no matter where his career would lead him. Unfortunately, he ended up at the White House.

Here is part the contract Obama signed…

“We are socialists because we reject an international economic order sustained by private profit, alienated labor, race and gender discrimination, environmental destruction, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.”

“We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane international social order based both on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources, meaningful work, a healthy environment, sustainable growth, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships.” – The Democratic Socialists of America

If Obama signed it, I’m sure the rest of his socialist collaborators in Congress signed it. That means; almost 100 members of our Congress want to KILL our system of capitalism. As you can see, we cannot afford to sit back and do nothing.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The economy weak and the public seething, President Barack Obama is expected to propose $300 billion in tax cuts and federal spending Thursday night to get Americans working again. Republicans offered Tuesday to compromise with him on jobs — but also assailed his plans in advance of his prime-time speech.

In effect, Obama will be hitting cleanup on a shortened holiday week, with Republican White House contender Mitt Romney releasing his jobs proposals on Tuesday and front-running Texas Gov. Rick Perry hoping to join his presidential rivals Wednesday evening on a nationally televised debate stage for the first time….

According to people familiar with the White House deliberations, two of the biggest measures in the president’s proposals for 2012 are expected to be a one-year extension of a payroll tax cut for workers and an extension of expiring jobless benefits. Together those two would total about $170 billion.

The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the plan was still being finalized and some proposals could still be subject to change.

The White House is also considering a tax credit for businesses that hire the unemployed. That could cost about $30 billion. Obama has also called for public works projects, such as school construction. Advocates of that plan have called for spending of $50 billion, but the White House proposal is expected to be smaller.

Obama also is expected to continue for one year a tax break for businesses that allows them to deduct the full value of new equipment. The president and Congress negotiated that provision into law for 2011 last December.

Though Obama has said he intends to propose long-term deficit reduction measures to cover the up-front costs of his jobs plan, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama would not lay out a wholesale deficit reduction plan in his speech.

The new, taller border fence in downtown Nogales, seen here while under construction in June, is proving to be dangerous for climbers. Photographer: Jonathan Clark, nogalesinternational

NOGALES, AZ – The higher the wall, the harder they will fall. That’s what border crossers trying to scale the new border fence at Nogales are painfully finding out.

The imposing new border fence running through Nogales is proving to be a treacherous obstacle for suspected illegal immigrants

A Nogales Police Department report says on Aug. 12, a woman broke her leg after climbing the border fence.

Two days later, officers found a second injured fence climber. And a third, suspected illegal immigrant from China fell and broke his leg on Aug 22.

Nogales Fire Department Chief Hector Robles tells the Nogales International that in addition to the height of the fence, adrenaline and miscalculations in determining the distance and angle of a fall are potential injury factors.
