This would be a great Patriotic home schooling lesson!

President Eisenhower told a Women’s Conference:

“I have just come from assisting in the dedication of a new stamp…on it also is stated ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’…”

Eisenhower stated October 24, 1954 at the 75th Anniversary of the Incandescent Lamp:

Let us make sure that familiarity has not made them meaningless for us:

Atheism substitutes men for the Supreme Creator and this leads inevitably to domination and dictatorship…

Our Government is servant, not master, our chosen representatives are our equals, not our czars or commissars.”

He went on to say:

We must jealously guard our foundation in faith. For on it rests the ability of the American individual to live and thrive in this blessed land – and be able to help other less fortunate people to achieve freedom and individual opportunity. These we take for granted, but to others they are often only a wistful dream. ‘IN GOD WE TRUST.’ Often have we heard the words of this wonderful American motto. Let us make sure that familiarity has not made them meaningless for us. We carry the torch of freedom as a sacred trust for all mankind. We do not believe that God intended the light that He created to be put out by men.”

For on it rests the ability of the American individual to live and thrive in this blessed land-and to be able to help other less fortunate people to achieve freedom and individual opportunity. These we take for granted, but to others they are often only a wistful dream.

It seems so, so long…JUST one year ago today our hearts were broken. ~ JP

I see Andrew every day. When I fire up my buddy list there is Bodiaz bringing his dose of happy-sad. Thanks, someone, for not turning his computer off.

On the one-year anniversary of his death, many folks will speak of Andrew’s loss to the cause. Go ahead and cube that vacuum a few times. It’s true, in some measure he lives on in all of us. When I was out campaigning for Romney last year, all my tough decisions were decided by a simple What Would Andrew Do?

But for me, and many, it’s not about politics or movements. I’m still mourning the small “b” Breitbart. I miss my friend terribly. I loved the guy.

A few days after Andrew’s funeral last year I wrote a song. It was never meant for public consumption. With his wife’s Susie’s permission, here’s the demo/lyric:


Here

Gone

Unfinished Song

All was there

All is lost

No Silver Linings

No God’s will

No Sense or Reason

Our heart is still

All that remains is moving on

Lessened

Cheated

Robbed us all

I can’t stand to say goodbye

Oh No…

Memories

Not enough

In the Home of the Brave

You were the best of the lot

There’s no replacing

This hole won’t fill

Death is cold and it’s cruel

Real and unreal

All that remains is to carry on

With Tears and Riddles

We’ll never solve

Here at the bridge we will never cross

Here at the bridge…Lost

I can’t stand to say goodbye

I can’t stand to say goodbye

I can’t stand to say goodbye

Goodbye

Oh No…

“One of the founding pillars of this nation was freedom of speech and freedom of expression and when we give up that freedom by succumbing to political correctness,” Carson said that Americans are allowing that underpinning to be compromised “without debate.”

Dr. Carson said he believes God is with him, and “if God is for you who can be against you?”

“Is it harder to follow God when you want or do not want to do something?” For Dr. Carson, he believes God opens and closes doors and to pray for guidance and see how it feels. He said while some things may feel glamorous, it may not “feel right” and that is what really matters.

He also explained where he falls on the political compass and how he supports the constitution:

Beck and Dr. Carson went on to discuss a range of issues including wealth, the medical community, politicians, and whether or not he would ever run for office:

Following the prayer breakfast, Carson revealed that he actually refused repeated requests from the White House to furnish an advance copy of his speech prior to the event.

Carson told The Hill that he rebuffed the White House’s request because he does not write out his speeches in advance of speaking engagements.

“I told them that I don’t have an advance copy because I don’t write out my speeches and I don’t use teleprompters,” he told The Hill. “They asked more than once … I gave them the [Biblical] texts around which the remarks would be framed … I said read those texts, the remarks will be framed around those … that should have told them something.”

“I always pray before I give a speech and ask God to tell me what to say,” the doctor explained in an interview with the Daily Caller about the backlash from his remarks.

In terms of whether or not his speech was offensive, Dr. Carson said it could only be construed as offensive “if you’re an ideologue and don’t like to have anyone challenge what you think.”

But if you’re an individual who understands what our government is supposed to be — and that is something for, of and by the people — then it’s not offensive at all when one of the people comes out with some suggestions; it’s not seen as an attack.”

~ Reverse Racism in Play

Joe Reed of the Alabama DemocRat Party (see the Truth about Joe below). Frightening to think Joe is one of Alabama’s 12 most influential people. He is connected to the other upstart, Paul Hubbert- Executive secretary Alabama Education Association. He’s vice chairman of the Democratic Party and is chairman of the $12 billion teachers retirement system board, which is part of the Retirement Systems of Alabama. He and AEA associate executive secretary Joe Reed merged black and white education organizations in 1969, forming a modern and unified AEA. Hubbert also carried on in Montgomery yesterday and is also one of the 12.

Artur Davis, knows these politics and ran from them, ran all the way to the GOP and moved out of state. His mother went to Alabama State with Joe. She was secretary in the SGA, Joe was President. Arturo has known Joe since he was a child. But that doesn’t mean they stayed friends.


It is important to note Reed, 70, has very dirty hands with Unions/Teachers, uses his group’s base, the court systems and legislative reapportionment apparatus to draw legislative, state school board and congressional district lines. Reed drafted legislative district plans in 1982 and 1992, which increased black representation in the House from 13 to 27 and in the state Senate from 3 to 8.

“We’re the only state in the nation that has black elected legislative representation equal to black population.”

Rant Begins @ 1:45:

“For those who say that things are all right because we’ve got a black president let them come to Alabama,” former Ala. Democratic Party official Joe Reed said. “It was the state of Alabama and the state of Mississippi where the Voting Rights Act was considered to be most needed – these states gave Barack Obama fewer votes than any states in the nation. Racism, racism, racism is very much alive!”

Supporters of the act rallied outside the court today including busloads of Alabamians who say Section 5 is still needed to protect minority voters in places with troubled racial pasts.

Shelby County today argued that Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act that requires certain states like Alabama to get “preclearance” or permission from the government before redrawing districts or polling places is outdated, in part because the formula the government uses is based on voting data from 1964.

At least four of the court’s conservative justices seemed to agree, with swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy asking how long states like Alabama must live “under the trusteeship of the united states government.”

My FOX Alabama

I would like to give you a little background on Joe Reed, whom I liken to Sharpton & Jackson. And his connection, as many racists, like Wright, Ellison, etc. with obama.

In March of 2008, in obama’s race against Clinton for the nomination, obama was one convention delegate ahead. Alabama AFL-CIO President Stewart Burkhalter as an unpledged add-on delegate for the convention. Burkhalter, who was backed by the Obama campaign, won by six voters over Jerome Green of Birmingham, who was supported by Clinton’s team. Burkhalter pledged his vote to barry.

Obama won Alabama’s presidential primary on Feb. 5 by 14 percentage points back then. HOW that happened I don’t have a clue. Considering Reed cries foul on southern racist votes. Sixty-five people paid the $50 qualifying fee to run for the 10 Obama spots. That I also did not know. Pay to vote for obama, hmmm.

The interesting part is where Joe comes in:

“You wouldn’t want someone who supported another candidate to select the delegates,” Coleman said.

“That’s just a lie,” Reed said. “They had some folks they wanted to pay off.”

Then in April of last year, the Truth about Joe became apparent.

A quiet storm brewed inside the Alabama Democratic Party (ADP). Emails were forwarded, notarized letters were Fedex’ed, members of the State Democratic Executive Committee met to hand deliver notarized letters … to what purpose? A formal challenge (filed Thursday with the DNC’s Rules & Bylaws Committee, or RBC) to Dr. Joe L. Reed’s credentials as an “uncommitted” Party Leader/Elected Official (PLEO) delegate to the Democratic National Convention.

The basis for this challenge is that Dr. Reed appeared as both “uncommitted PLEO” and “Barack Obama PLEO” on the ballot at the April 14 SDEC meeting.

From the credentials challenge:

The issue is simple: you can’t hedge your bets. The challenged individual ran in Alabama at the PLEO level simultaneously pledged for opposing presidential preferences. Please see exhibit A. Essentially he “double-dipped” to increase his chance of selection. Rule 12(A) requires all supporters to choose and “be identified as to presidential preference or uncommitted status” at any given level. The language is clear because “or” requires a choice between mutually exclusive options. Rule 12(D) provides further guidance. The challenged became a “bona fide supporter” of Barack Obama when OFA certified him in writing. Therefore, the challenged cannot satisfy Rule 12(J) requiring he “reflect the sentiments of those who elected them.” Simply put, a certified Obama supporter can’t fairly represent uncommitted voters.

The challenge asserts that all males running as “uncommitted” were injured by Dr. Reed’s double dipping. They ask that he “be retroactively stricken from the uncommitted ballot as a corrective remedy,” a remedy which would cascade through the “uncommitted” male delegates as alternates move up in the PLEO and at-large categories.

The challenge also expresses concern for the integrity of future elections if Dr. Reed’s precedent of standing in more than one camp is allowed:

In this case, it can be argued, the challenged individual demonstrated a flagrant disregard for core democratic principles and created a dangerous precedent for 2016. Just like you can’t qualify in multiple districts to increase your odds, you also can’t run for multiple presidential candidates at the same level. Cast in a familiar light, consider it’s 2008 and someone couldn’t choose so they ran for both Barack and Hillary. Left unchallenged we will see this practice deployed widespread next cycle. It is imperative the RBC act decisively to deter further manipulation.

… If unscrupulous people are allowed to run at the same level for multiple presidential candidates they will be unfairly advantaged. Additionally, the RBC’s failure to intervene will greenlight this behavior to other states.

The controversy arises because Dr. Joe L. Reed is the person who did it and his are the credentials being challenged. He’s vice-chair of the SDEC, head of the minority caucus, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Conference and generally the Big Dog in the ADP.

To tell Dr. Reed that the rules apply to him the same as they apply to other people and to revoke his credentials at all levels would be like a cyclone sweeping through the ADP’s power structure.

So you see the connection of Joe Reed JUST being another racist for obama. You see he’s typical lib, by ‘hook or crook to get his way. He likes causing trouble. He enjoys being an upstart. And get this he has a son, Steven Reed is a familiar house-hold name in Montgomery. Frightening he is now a Probate Judge.

Joe has an interesting comment on our Constitution:

I mean who’s worried anymore about some racist language in the constitution? That’s symbolic.

This coming from someone who is using ‘race’ as his game plan. Jessie and Jessie Jr thrive in Alabama as well. I have seen many parallels in the 5 years I’ve been here, to Alabama politics with the Machine in Illinois. Here they are JUST named ‘Reed’. ~ JP

“Glory Hounds.” Its focus is on the combat dogs used in Afghanistan to sniff out buried explosive devices. The program has a fair amount of feel-good filler about the bond between the dogs and their handlers, but when it comes to showing these pairs at work, it is blunt and disturbing.

These dogs have been credited with saving many lives.


I will be watching…

Air Force Tech. Sgt. Leonard Anderson and a bomb-detecting dog, Azza, an 8-year-old Belgian Malinois, in Afghanistan. Animal Planet television special “Glory Hounds,” included coverage of Air Force Tech. Sgt. Anderson and his team, when they embedded four camera crews with front line troops for six weeks. “Glory Hounds” airs Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and repeats on Feb. 24 at 9 a.m. ET/PT.

This man speaks so softly and truly does carry a BIG stick. I put his way of putting things in the category of Mark Levin. Their words and knowledge have a profound way of reaching us.

At the National Prayer Breakfast speech Dr. Carson was asked on a possible run for the White House. Dr. Carson responded:

“If the Lord grabbed me by the collar and made me do it, I would.”

Read his fascinating and touching bio.
