Democrats Disavow Their Own US Senate Candidate

This is hilarious. A conservative in Tennessee entered the U.S. Senate race legitimately as a Democrat, and then won the primary. Now the Democrats have officially disavowed their own party’s nominee.

From the Daily Caller:

The Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed its own U.S. Senate nominee Friday, announcing that he is “associated with a known hate group” — in this case, a conservative advocacy organization.

Mark Clayton won Tuesday’s Democratic primary with 30 percent of the vote in a field of seven candidates.

By disavowing their own primary winner, are Democrats telling us that (gasp) they aren’t really as open-minded and inclusive as they lead us to believe? I know that’s hard to believe, but the conclusion is hard to escape. (wink, wink)

Of course, any time you listen to anything said by a Leftist, you need to whip out the Lexicon of Leftist Language to be able to convert it to reality. According to the American Clarion Guide to LiberalSpeak, “hate” in the language of the Left means:

to tell the truth about or criticize, esp. the truth about immoral behavior. Can be considered “negative campaigning” (see definition) if employed against a liberal candidate;

Any person or group who exposes the truth about the Left’s dark, immoral agenda is a “hater.” In fact, the liberal hate group Southern Poverty Law Center recently labeled American Clarion’s predecessor, Dakota Voice, as a “hate group” because some of our writers had for some time been exposing their Leftist, anti-American, anti-Christian, immoral agenda. It’s a classic Leftist tactic to engage in projection and blame others for precisely what they are themselves doing (just like the homofascists who were so hateful toward Chick-fil-A for admitting what every human civilization throughout history has realized).

Turns out that Clayton’s group is (like the Family Research Council, the Constitution Party, Mass Resistance, Oath Keepers, Dakota Voice, and many others) everything that what typical “hate” groups pass for on the Left. His organization stands for “hateful” things like:

  • Defending marriage from counterfeiters
  • Allowing children to pray in school
  • Allowing Americans to exercise their religious freedom as guaranteed by the First Amendment
  • Protecting innocent human life
  • Promoting Boy Scouts
  • Opposes high taxes and wasteful spending
  • Equality under the law
  • Taxpayer funding or endorsement of pornography and obscenity

My, what a horrible, “hate”ful agenda! It’s no wonder the peace-loving, tolerant Democrat Party wanted to disavow a representative of this nauseating agenda!

So now the Tennessee Democrats are on record disavowing marriage, school prayer, religious freedom, protecting innocent human life, the Boy Scouts, low taxes, responsible spending, equality under the law, and are cool with taxpayer funding and/or endorsement of pornography and/or obscenity. Wonderful. We seldom get this kind of honesty about their “values” out of Democrats.

If I wasn’t so well-known to the Left in South Dakota, I might consider running as a Democrat, just to have some fun. After all, if Democrats can run as “Republicans” in South Dakota, why couldn’t I run as a Democrat in South Dakota? Democrats seem to think it’s fine and wonderful for liberals who obviously don’t share the GOP’s values to run for office as “Republicans;” therefore, they should be very pleased to have a conservative who doesn’t share their liberal values run for office as a “Democrat.” I could just see Leftists like Cory Heidelberger and Bill Fleming applauding my candidacy in the name of diversity, inclusion, tolerance, not walking in lockstep, open-mindedness, differing viewpoints, and all that other wonderful drivel. Who knows, they might even send me a contribution check or two out of the magnanimity of their liberal hearts.

Now that I think about it, if the Democrats in Tennessee have the guts to disavow a candidate who obviously isn’t committed to their party’s Leftist values, why is the South Dakota GOP so gutless as to allow liberals who don’t share the Republican Party’s conservative values to run for office and sit in office (and caucus)?

Do Democrats actually have more integrity than Republicans? While I would normally roll on the floor laughing at such a contention, it appears that at least with regard to the integrity of their party values in Tennessee, they do.

Why Countries Remain POOR

Economies have to PRODUCE SOMETHING OF VALUE, and they must EXPORT THESE ITEMS, or CONVINCE PEOPLE WITH ACTUAL CURRENCY TO VISIT. The simplest example of this sort of behavior is looking at a country that produces little of value to the outside world, that no one wants to visit, and how poor that country is. Go to Africa or South or Central America or Asia and visit one of these areas. The situation is grim.

These poor countries are almost always associated with lousy government, because it is human nature to want to better yourself and people everywhere are intelligent. When given a chance, they will work to grow or build something of value so that they can sell it in order to try to lift themselves out of grinding poverty. However, if the country has no infrastructure, no security, and puts punitive short-term economic controls on the country or currency, this limits people’s ability to improve their situation.

Don't fall for the manipulation

Are you part of a hate group, I am

This organization according to democrats is a HATE GROUP. IF these values are hatred, count me as one too. Very sad. This story is sad. The divide is very great

Public Education can be saved, but first it must be torn down.
This is for my friend Chuck Comstock who recently posted a query on confirmation bias. I read this early this morning and thought of his questions. I think the whole Chick Fil A and Gun Control debates are driven by confirmation bias. Certainly Global Warming et al is driven by it. In the Chick thing, the facts didn't matter, the bias did. On the other side of the debate (mine) the facts behind the actual lack of gun control is colored by a bias that fears it might be going on. I commend you Chuck for thinking this thru. The Trayvon Martin event is a confirmation bias driven episode as well. I have to admit I am driven by some Confirmation Bias. And as the last line of the article says (it's one of three which are linked) BRING ON THE GADFLIES. OUCH
I don't HATE Obama, but I share this to illustrate that Democrats cannot govern effectively. Economics is their enemy


I really feel like the whole Chick Fil A eat in was Christians and conservatives saying to atheists, liberals, gay rights agenda pushers and the mainstream liberal media, NO, I won't sit in the back of the bus anymore. You can't silence me. I will speak up with one voice. We are all Rosa Parks in a culture that wants us to sit down and shut up in the back of the cultural bus. Time for us to take the keys away. Sit right up front.

The Education System Collapse

For those who don't think there are any good jobs out there, this story belies that. There are PLENTY of GOOD jobs, there just aren't people good enough to get or keep them. Our education system has failed the people who might get good jobs.. Read this and tell me what you think if you want. The part that is the most frustrating is the one about the alarm
This can't possibly be true.

Chick-fil-A and Far-Left Tyranny

 I have said for a long time that unless our nation’s elected officials and judges understand that their qualifications to lead are based on delegated authority from God that they would become tyrannical in their legislation and leadership! Elected officials and judges in the USA should base their philosophy of leadership on the U.S. Declaration of Independence that clearly states that all people “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” Hence, unless our elected officials and judges understand that human rights come from God and that all law and human government ultimately emanate and are given to us from God to rule justly then they will lead based on their own wit and whim which ultimately paves the way for tyrannical rule! (James 4:12 says “There is only one lawgiver and judge”; Proverbs 8:15-16 says “By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just; by me princes rule, and nobles, all who govern justly.”)
Consequently, the greatest protection citizens of any nation possess is when their political leaders understand they have limited power to rule because they derive their legitimate power from God as His representatives. Leaders who don’t share this view believe rights come from mere humans, thus elevating themselves as the highest authorities in the land—a scary thing indeed!
This is why it is urgent that all concerned citizens oppose the election of any official or any political party that is based on godless humanism, which derives its laws from so-called “elite” human leaders who dictate what is right and wrong to us “stupid unenlightened people”! Their view (perhaps similar to Plato’s Republic) is that only a few cultural elites know what is best and these people should be the ones who lead because they are the most educated and can tell the masses of people how to live, what to believe, and the values they should espouse.
In recent decades those on the far left in our country have begun to show their true colors more and more regarding their philosophy of leadership. Case in point: when Dan Cathy, the President and COO of Chick-fil-A, said that he opposed same-sex marriage in a recent radio interview. He said: “I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’”
The three liberal mayors of Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago initially spoke out against him and implied they would try to block Chick-fil-A from opening up stores in their cities. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel vowed to block the chain’s plan to build a new restaurant in the Windy City. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino sent a letter informing Chick-fil-A executives that their plans to open a restaurant in his city weren’t welcome. San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee told the restaurant on Twitter to stay away: “Closest #ChickFilA to San Francisco is 40 miles away & I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer.”
Christine Quinn, the Speaker of the New York City Council, sent a letter to NYU pressuring them to close the city’s only Chick-fil-A that resides on their property, writing to the President of NYU: “I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views.”
This is an egregious use of her power! It is one thing for her to say she doesn’t agree with Dan Cathy’s position and even call for a boycott. But it is another thing to tell NYU that she doesn’t want Chick-fil-A in her city! Now it’s her city? Perhaps this is a portent of how she will lead our city if she is elected mayor!  I am hoping this was merely a visceral slip of the pen and that she doesn’t really believe in this form of tyrannical intolerance because, in many ways, she has been a very good leader in New York City!
Even NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a same-sex marriage proponent, knew enough to distance himself from the statements of these other mayors when he said on the radio: “It’s just not government’s job, and no matter how much you dislike somebody else’s views, think about what would happen in the cities where the views are on the other side.”
Taking the logic and political philosophy of these elected officials further, they are advocating a political system in which only those people who agree with their position of same-sex marriage (and other liberal values) would be allowed to operate in their city. What about all the Muslims, Jews, Christians and houses of worship that don’t agree with their values? Does Christine Quinn want all conservative, religious congregations to leave “her” city? Will there now be a litmus test for businesses before they are allowed to open and operate in New York City, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago?
Speaker Quinn should know better as she has fought for gay rights for many years. In her mind she represents a minority that has been oppressed. Will the oppressed now become the oppressors?
After their initial statements there has been an outcry which has caused Quinn and most of the other leaders mentioned above to issue statements saying they will not try to use their power or positions to influence which businesses are allowed to operate in their respective cities. But their initial responses are very telling and alarming! How are we to know what they are really saying and planning behind closed doors?
This is not about homosexuality. I am very close to many gay people who would never attempt to impose their values on the rest of America! This is a reflection of the radical progressive left that doesn’t agree with the foundations of our nation—especially the Declaration of Independence—and who want to govern based on human opinion outside of God’s word and governance, which is very scary indeed! Remember, if our rights come from God then we can hold our elected officials accountable to a higher power and greater King. But if our rights come from men then, as history shows, the day will come when these same people will attempt to take away our rights. In the 18th century such actions led to the Revolutionary War to gain independence from the tyranny of the King of England!
I pray that it never gets this far again in this great nation, and I pray that we will elect leaders in both political parties who know that ultimate authority comes from their Creator and not from themselves!

Wisdom from 42BC

A nation can survive its fools, and even their ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor – he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation – he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city – he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. - Cicero 42 B.C.

The same is true with the church!

Mar 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
Mar 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

Islam is very very evil

  Two young, unmarried lovers, apparently with children, were buried up to their necks then stoned to death in a Mali town taken over by Islamist extremists. Bearded men, armed with Kalashnikov rifles, dragged the couple from the countryside into the center of the town of Aguelhok, reports the New York Times. "I was there," said a local government official. "The couple was placed in two holes and the Islamists stoned them to death. It was horrible,” he said, adding that the woman cried out and man yelled during the attack. “It was inhuman. They killed them like they were animals.”
