Alaska: Sarah Palin blasts Lisa Murkowski on Facebook (October 30, 2010)

Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air.

Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air.

Newstalks George Hook and Lara Marlowe in one-sided discussion on the Tea Party movement

This evening George Hook and Lara Marlowe discussed the Tea Party movement in the US. It would be charitable to call it a discussion as no proper effort was made to give the real views of the Tea Party movement

Lara Marlow strongly criticised Christina O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Joe Miller. Her criticism of O’Donnell was savage. She was careful to mention that O'Donnell's Democrat opponent Chris Coons (also known as the Bearded Marxist) was educated at Yale. But Marlowe omitted to mention Coon's record in Delaware. He introduced a 54% property tax and a 64% sewer tax increase.
Now I wonder who the real extremist is.
One would have expected some effort at balance from G.Hook.It was singularly lacking. He made no effort to defend O’Donnell. No effort was made to stress that candidates such as O’Donnell, Angle and Miller are fiscal conservatives determined to see a balanced budget and stringent controls on government spending. They were just painted as extremists.

Now of course O’Donnell and Angle are pro-life women. Democrats and their friends in the liberal media detest O’Donnell and Angle because they are anti-abortion. No reference to this was made by either Marlow or Hook.

It was particularly interesting to note that Lara Marlowe failed to discuss the ugly personal attacks on Christina O’Donnell and Sharron Angle by Democrats and their friends in the media.
Lets look at ONE particular attack on O’Donnell:

Christine O'Donnell called a Whore in Scurrilous Attack by Behar Guest Judge Karen Mills-Francis

Via FoxNation
On Wednesday’s Joy Behar Show on HLN, when a panel discussion turned to the subject of Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell, panel member Judge Karen Mills-Francis of the Judge Karen’s Court show described O’Donnell as having been a "whore" as she listed some of the Senate candidate's past and recent problems.

Mills-Francis: "She’s a real train wreck, and the reason why she said that is, I mean, have you looked at this woman’s resume? She was a whore by her own admission. She was an alcoholic. She owed her college $5,000 for 10 years – they had to sue her. The IRS levied an $11,000 tax lien against her. I mean, do I need to go on?"
Apparently impressed by her rant, host Behar responded, "Keep going."
View video of comments here The segment of the programme concerning Christine O'Donnell commenced at 4.36 on the video.The scurrilous comment was made at 5.10 on the video.

Finally is it too much to ask George Hook to give the GOP side of the argument in future? Sadly in Ireland most news comes from American Pro Democrat sources. Lara Marlowe might care to define what she means by moderate Republican?
I suspect moderate to her means pro-abortion and big spending.

Kentucky Video:Rand Paul Answers Jack Conway's shameful Ad

Video:Jimmy McMillan of The Rent Is Too Damn High Party at the NY Governor Debate

Jimmy McMillan, also known as Papa Smurf, is the founder of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party, a New York-based political party. Since his latest appearance at the 2010 New York State gubernatorial debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. that was held on October 18, 2010 he has become a news and media celebrity. Foxnews.com reported that McMillan is a retired postal worker and he is the party's current nominee in the New York gubernatorial election, 2010. In 2005 and 2009. McMillan was the party's mayoral candidate for New York City.

In 2005, he received over 1000 votes (.03% of the total vote). In 2009, he received 2615 votes for his second campaign for Mayor.

During an appearance at a 2010 gubernatorial debate dominated by McMillan and the four other minor-party candidates , he stated his views on gay marriage, by saying "The Rent Is Too Damn High Party believes that if you want to marry a shoe, I'll marry you."

Regarding his use of black gloves during the debate, "I’m a war vet," McMillan said. "Don’t forget I was in Vietnam for two and half years and I have three Bronze Stars, but the chemicals of Agent Orange -- dioxin and a lot of other chemicals mixed up -- I would get sick. When I get home tonight, I know I’m not going to be able to breathe if I take them off. It could be psychological, I don’t know, but I just put em on and wear them anyway." Source (Wikipedia)

Colorado Video: Vote YES on Amendment 62 (November 2, 2010)

Every year, approximately 20,000 people are annihilated in Colorado through surgical abortion. Tens of thousands more are killed through chemical abortions, often unbeknownst to mothers who are tricked into thinking that their commonly used forms of "birth control" do not kill a developing human being. Many more developing humans perish at the hands of researchers seeking panaceas that never materialize.

Congressman Henry Hyde Pro-Life Quote:You are not alone…

The following quote has provided inspiration for many
in the pro-life cause:
"When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that
awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought,
as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of
loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone
standing before God -- and a terror will rip your soul
like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those
in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there'll
be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this
world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next
world -- and they will plead for everyone who has been
in this movement. They will say to God, 'Spare him,
because he loved us!'"
Congressman Henry Hyde

Ireland: Enda Kenny address at FG Presidential Dinner Saturday 9 Oct, 2010

Extracts of the Speech by President and Leader of Fine Gael, Enda Kenny T.D., at the Party’s Annual Presidential Dinner
When the Irish people give a new Government a new mandate, the natural energy, optimism and ideas of the Irish people will be unleashed. Set free. Liberated from the strangle hold of despair created by the current Government’s failings.

Fine Gael wants to seek that mandate, that permission from the people. We want to put the case of the Party I have the honour to lead to the people. Let me confirm to you tonight that Fine Gael has done the hard work and is now ready to lead the way in restoring our country’s fortunes. We have people who will lead. We have a team that will not lie down in the face of this challenge. And most crucially - we have the plans.

1. We will restore order and structure to the public finances

Never again will we allow bad politics and reckless banks destroy the economy. We will cut the budget deficit to 3% by 2014 and we recognise the need for a four year fiscal planning horizon. In that regard Michael Noonan will be meeting with Department of Finance officials on Wednesday as part of our own budgetary planning process.

But, let me be clear. We will achieve these budgetary targets not just through the usual spending and tax measures but by supporting economic growth and job creation. We know we cannot tax our way to economic recovery or health in the public finances. As a former Minister for Trade and Tourism I know at close quarters that a competitive tax regime is crucial for a small open economy like ours.

Even if others waiver on the issue, Fine Gael will not raise corporation tax. A successful Fine Gael Government introduced the current low rate and it has served our economy well over the years. Let me also confirm, that as Vice-President of the EPP in the European Parliament I have already made it clear to my colleagues the Treaty of Lisbon for which you all worked so hard makes tax matters sacrosanct to each individual country.

Finally, next week I travel to the US to meet Irish and US business interests to reinforce that message and to assist in the promotion of this country as one of the best locations in the world in which to do business.


2. We will make the protection and creation of jobs the first and last priority of a new Government

It seems to have escaped the notice of those in Government today that we will never fix our financial crisis if we don’t grow our economy and fix our jobs crisis.

We’ll get credit flowing by establishing a new small business loan guarantee scheme, as has been successfully introduced in many other countries – most notably Chile and Taiwan. Fine Gael will be launching a detailed policy document in this regard shortly and we will seek cross party support for this measure in the Dáil.

We’ll create over 100,000 jobs by putting in place an €18bn investment stimulus in the vital arteries of our economy – high speed broadband, clean energy, water - financed in part by selling off those state assets that we no longer need. This Fine Gael plan is called NewERA.


3. We’ll bring the Dutch health system – the best in Europe – to Ireland

Fine Gael’s health plan, FairCare, will eliminate hospital waiting lists - as they did in Northern Ireland – and put the patient front and centre by paying hospitals for what they actually do rather than for what they did last year. We’ll eliminate the unfair two-tier health system by making sure that health insurance is affordable for everyone. This will mean people will get access to care on the basis of need rather than wealth. This new approach is based on the world famous Dutch system of healthcare. It has worked there, it can work here too.


4. We will change politics and the public service

If the public is to take seriously political parties’ plans for rebuilding our country then, I believe, that political parties have to show that they are serious themselves about changing.

That is why within 12 months of forming a new Government Fine Gael will ask you to vote to abolish the Seanad and to reduce the Dáil by 20 TDs. We’ll make the Dáil smaller and more effective at holding Government to account in the public’s interest.

And let me state this clearly and without any ambiguity: A Fine Gael Government will operate in the people’s interests. It will not be the prisoner of big business, powerful unions or any other vested interest. Our only interest is the public’s interest.

We must make our political system more responsive and effective in tackling the wanton waste of public cash. I am determined that this scandalous waste of public monies is eliminated. We will also eliminate significant fraud in the welfare system and, finally, we will take on the white collar criminals with the same energy and determination that any threat to our society is pursued. The law of the land will apply, and must be seen to apply, to every section of our society. And if the law isn’t strong enough to do this we will strengthen it further.

Conclusion

Tonight, let us decide on one thing.

Let us look back on Black Thursday and recognise it not as an end but as a beginning. A day when the Irish people braced themselves for a fight, took a deep breath and said; never again.

I stand tonight with those true Irish patriots. I too say, never again. From this day forward let us stand together as a people and rebuild our country. Our banks, our public services, our economy and our politics all need a new start. It is a massive undertaking. The struggle will be long, our opponents many and the challenges diverse.

But the prize is worth fighting for.

A country to be proud of. One that protects its vulnerable. Rewards hard work and effort. Treats all with dignity and respect. Cherishes our young and invests for our shared future. And one that prizes community ahead of economy while recognising we need to nurture both. That is a country worth fighting for.
ENDS

Video: Mirjana Apparition at Medjugorje October 2, 2010

Medjugorje Message to Mirjana

Today, October 2, 2010, Our Lady appeared and gave the following message:

“Dear children; Today I call you to a humble, my children, humble devotion. Your hearts need to be just. May your crosses be your means in the battle against the sins of the present time. May your weapon be patience and boundless love – a love that knows to wait and which will make you capable of recognizing God’s signs – that your life, by humble love, may show the truth to all those who seek it in the darkness of lies. My children, my apostles, help me to open the paths to my Son. Once again I call you to pray for your shepherds. Alongside them, I will triumph. Thank You.”
