Okay, whether you think this is a neat idea (I do) or it is an abomination, you do have to admit that the Mormon Church asked for this big time.
Causing a stir online today is a new websitethat invites users to posthumously convert Mormons to homosexuality.
The single-serving site is a rather candid knock at the common Mormon practice known as “vicarious baptism” or “proxy baptism,” which involves the baptizing of a living person on behalf of someone who has passed on.
LDS Church members have received significant criticism in the past for attempting to baptize deceased individuals who belonged to a different faith in life. Of particular contention are conversion ceremonies conducted on behalf of Holocaust victims.
Earlier this month the church was forced to apologize to the family of noted Holocaust survivor Simon Wiesenthal, whose parents, it was revealed, had been baptized by proxy in January. Yesterday, a similar story involving iconic Holocaust victim Anne Frank appeared in the media.
The Church has since released a statement vowing to discipline “individual abusers” of the the controversial practice.
Chris Matthews Concedes: ‘Liberals Don’t Want to Pay More Taxes’; ‘It’s All a Game’
(he is still working at msnbc? when lesser people there have been fired for even suggesting democrats and liberals could be wrong)
Just plain dumb! White house being worked on? Hey, we are creating jobs everywhere! Sure the millions out of work will be inspired by this.
Democrats into denial!
(The Hill) — Oil speculators, not a lack of domestic drilling, are to blame for the nation’s rising gas prices, the top House Democrat argued Wednesday.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said unscrupulous Wall Street investors have artificially inflated prices at the pump, which are climbing toward $4 per gallon.
The California Democrat called on Congress to take “strong action” to rein in the allegedly excessive speculation, and accused Republicans of protecting Wall Street profits at the expense of consumers.
“Wall Street profiteering, not oil shortages, is the cause of the price spike,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Unfortunately, Republicans have chosen to protect the interests of Wall Street speculators and oil companies instead of the interests of working Americans by obstructing the agencies with the responsibility of enforcing consumer protection laws.”
The comments – arriving a day before President Obama is scheduled to address the issue of rising gas prices in Miami – represent just the latest shot in the perennial and largely partisan debate over the cause of price fluctuations in the oil and gasoline markets.
David Harsanyi: Shouldn’t Obama be taking credit for high gas prices?
This is the must-read op-ed of the day, in my opinion.
As we all know gas prices have shot up again in recent weeks, and the White House and its media sycophants are attributing the trend to everything from rising global demand, an allegedly recovering U.S. economy, turmoil in the Middle East, and of course “speculators” – among many other factors.
But as David Harsanyi writes, rising energy costs have been Obama’s explicitly stated agenda since before he was elected President. So with gas now pushing $4/gallon and beyond you’d think he and the Democrats might want to take some credit for their wonderful achievement.
This morning’s newspapers report an ominous development in the ObamaCare litigation, now pending in the U.S. Supreme Court:
The Court posted a seemingly minor but potentially portentous administrative change, which suggests it might postpone delivering a final ruling on the constitutionality of ObamaCare until the middle of 2016!
Specifically, the high Court increased the time it will devote to hearing oral arguments on whether the health care mandate is a tax for purposes of something called the Tax Anti-Injunction Act (26 U.S.C. § 7421(a)).
The historically lengthy oral arguments in the case, HHS v. Florida — now expanded by 30 minutes to an unprecedented six hours – are slated to take place late next month. A formal ruling in the case is expected by early July.
But will it be the final ruling? That’s now less clear.
First enacted in 1867, the Tax Anti-Injunction Act sweepingly forbids any court from hearing any case in which any person attempts to prevent the assessment or collection of a tax. Once the tax has been assessed and collected, however, a court may hear a case on it.
The ObamaCare mandate is enforced by means of a penalty fine, collected by the IRS. With a few exceptions, this fine will be imposed on every citizen who doesn’t check a box on his tax return affirming that he has purchased government-controlled health insurance.
Is the IRS penalty a tax, or not? So far, lower federal courts have come down on both sides of this issue. And for complicated legal reasons, the Obama Administration has actually been taking both sides on it: in Congress, the President’s men say it’s not a tax; in court, they say it is.
Sheldon Adelson plays as stubbornly in politics as he does in business. So the criticisms that he’s trying to personally buy the presidential election for Newt Gingrich are met with a roll of the eyes.
“They like to trash other people. It’s unfair that I’ve been treated unfair—but it doesn’t stop me. I might give $10 million or $100 million to Gingrich.”
Adelson, the 78-year-old CEO of casino giant Las Vegas Sands, certainly can afford to: With a net worth of roughly $25 billion, that $11 million, which jolted Gingrich’s flatlining presidential bid back to life, equates to 0.044% of his fortune. For someone with a $1 million net worth, the equivalent would be $440, or a two-night stay at Adelson’s Venetian casino. Adelson could personally fund an entire presidential campaign—say, $1 billion or so—and not even notice.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney defended Warren Buffett from the criticism against the Buffett Rule levelled by Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., praising Buffett’s philanthropy and defending his “right” to engage in political advocacy.
“I think Mr. Buffett, who is widely regarded for his success in business as well as in philanthropy, has been quite outspoken, as is his right, on what he believes is an issue of tax fairness,” Carney said during today’s press briefing. “He simply believes, as one of the wealthiest men in the world, that he should not be paying an effective tax rate lower than his secretary.”
Christie said Wednesday that Buffett should “cut a check and shut up” rather than advocate a tax increase for all the wealthy.
Carney dismissed Christie’s comment as a joke. “[T]hat’s a quip that tries to draw attention away from what is a very serious issue, which is the need to have a tax code that’s fair and that helps the American people as they recover from this recession,” he responded when asked if he agrees with Christie’s suggestion. “So, quips aside, we think the Buffett Rule is absolutely an important principle to apply to individual tax reform.”
(seems like Gov. Christie pissed off obama and his cronies?)
And going back quite some years to my younger days, here is Bridgette Bardot back in those days.
Now this is something I don’t believe most people know about, or follow, and of course you will not see our MSM say much if anything on this.
How one country told the banks to get lost! And survived!
Icelanders who pelted parliament with rocks in 2009 demanding their leaders and bankers answer for the country’s economic and financial collapse are reaping the benefits of their anger.
Since the end of 2008, the island’s banks have forgiven loans equivalent to 13 percent of gross domestic product, easing the debt burdens of more than a quarter of the population, according to a report published this month by the Icelandic Financial Services Association.
“You could safely say that Iceland holds the world record in household debt relief,” said Lars Christensen, chief emerging markets economist at Danske Bank A/S in Copenhagen. “Iceland followed the textbook example of what is required in a crisis. Any economist would agree with that.”
The island’s steps to resurrect itself since 2008, when its banks defaulted on $85 billion, are proving effective. Iceland’s economy will this year outgrow the euro area and the developed world on average, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development estimates. It costs about the same to insure against an Icelandic default as it does to guard against a credit event in Belgium. Most polls now show Icelanders don’t want to join the European Union, where the debt crisis is in its third year.
The island’s households were helped by an agreement between the government and the banks, which are still partly controlled by the state, to forgive debt exceeding 110 percent of home values. On top of that, a Supreme Court ruling in June 2010 found loans indexed to foreign currencies were illegal, meaning households no longer need to cover krona losses.
“The lesson to be learned from Iceland’s crisis is that if other countries think it’s necessary to write down debts, they should look at how successful the 110 percent agreement was here,” said Thorolfur Matthiasson, an economics professor at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, in an interview. “It’s the broadest agreement that’s been undertaken.”
Sunday, February 19, 2012, marks the seventieth anniversary of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order (EO) 9066 - a tragic moment in our nation’s history.
On February 19th, 1942, “race prejudice, war hysteria and a failure of political leadership” overwhelmed the best angels of the American character. EO 9066 declared the West Coast a military zone. Japanese Americans were branded as an “enemy within.” 120,000 Japanese Americans were forced to evacuate their homes. My family and I were herded like cattle into the Amache internment camp in southeast Colorado. I was less than one year old at the time. [...]
We cannot stand idly by as an entire American community is demonized as a “religious enemy within.” We cannot hide our eyes when failed leaders like State Rep. Rick Womack of Tennessee declare that Muslims must be purged from our military or that Muslims pray to a false God. We must not stay silent as Rep. Peter King – during a recent hearing on the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor – uses tragic but isolated crimes and unnamed sources to proclaim that one group — Muslims— are the source of all homegrown terrorist threats to the military.
We cannot turn away as two American companies – Lowe’s and Kayak – pull their advertising from TLC’s “All American Muslim” television show in the face of Florida Family Association’s extremist assertions that the program misrepresents the “dangerous and radical truth” of the Islamic religion. And we will not stand idly by in the face of evidence that the NYPD and CIA are illegally and unjustly probing Muslim communities in New York City.
Now this, I find funny as hell. That this idiot becomes one with the enemy (muslims) and now wonders why he is not loved in hollywood.
(NY Post) — Sean Stone, son of controversial director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam in Iran last week and says he’s already experiencing a Hollywood backlash.
The ceremony was held in Isfahan, where he is researching a documentary. He now goes by the name of Sean Christopher Ali Stone.
He told Page Six: “I’ve already experienced the reverse of anti-Semitism, having people within the film industry express a reluctance to work with me now that I have said a simple prayer, ‘There is no God but God, and Mohammed is his messenger.’ I am sure I have [bleeped] off some powerful people.” Speaking over dinner at Barrio 47, Sean told us, “Having read the Koran and having been around the Islamic culture, especially in Iran, I do believe that Mohammed is a prophet of the same god worshipped by other religions.
He said his dad welcomed the move.
“My dad said, ‘Allah be with you.’ My father understands that I am trying to bridge certain gaps and bring about peace.”
But he has been shocked by the reaction from others. Sean, about to release his horror movie “Graystone,” said, “I didn’t realize I would be so vilified. It is almost like I am a criminal for having accepted Islam. I didn’t realize Islamophobia was that deep. People have speculated that I have done this because I am from a spoiled family or that I am lost and trying to find myself. That is ridiculous.
On March 3-4, Harvard will host a two-day conference at the Kennedy School of Government focused, in effect, on dismantling the Jewish state of Israel. A number of student groups and others associated with Harvard are sponsoring “One State Conference: Israel/Palestine and the One State Solution.”
Those who promote a one-state “solution” advocate creating an entity which would, through its merger with the Palestinian Arab population of the West Bank and Gaza and an influx of Palestinians from neighboring states, lose its Jewish majority and its Jewish character. In effect, Jewish self-determination would be nullified.
According to the working definition of anti-Semitism developed by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), and recognized by the United States Department of State, the One State Conference, in implicitly “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination,” is an exercise in anti-Semitism.
In a conversation recorded on February 9, 2012 at Imperial College in London, even Norman Finkelstein, who describes himself as having devoted his life to the cause of the Palestinians, told his interviewer, “You know and I know exactly what we’re talking about because if we end the occupation, and we bring back 6 million Palestinians, and we have equal rights for Arabs and Jews, there’s no Israel. That’s what it’s really about.”
49.5% Of All Americans Don’t Pay Income Taxes…
Remember this the next time Obama says everyone must “pay their fair share,” .
Now, if this story was about Christians stoning Muslims it would be page one news here in the US.
(Israel Today) — A mob of some 50 Palestinian Muslims stoned a group of Christian tourists atop Jerusalem’s Temple Mount on Sunday morning. Three of the Israeli police officers who acted to protect the Christian group were wounded by the stone-throwers.
Police arrested 11 Palestinians, several of them minors, for their role in the attack.
The attack is believed to have been instigated by the former Muslim mufti of Jerusalem, Ekrama Sabri, who told Palestinian media over the weekend that Jewish groups were planning to break into the mosques that occupy the holy compound and desecrate them.
Sabri urged all local Muslims to protect the mosques from “the Israeli conspiracy against the city and its holy places.”
Muslim religious figures regularly claim that Israel is plotting to destroy the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque to pave the way for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, which the Muslims now insist never previously existed.
Because of the constant threat of Muslim violence, and despite the fact that the Temple Mount is the most holy place on earth to Jews and many Christians, the Israeli police comply with Muslim demands for harsh restrictions on non-Muslim visitors to the site. For instance, Jews and Christians are forbidden to carry Bibles atop the Temple Mount or to utter even silent prayers within its walls. Jews and Christians are regularly detained for violating these conditions.
Again, Queen Michelle telling us to do as SHE says, not as SHE does!
In the midst of a recession, Michelle Obama and her two daughters are spending Presidents Day on the slopes at the star-studded resort of Aspen, a source who is a longtime ski instructor at the mountain confirmed to the Daily Caller.
The source told TheDC that the Obamas are there with their young children and two female friends of the first lady. The group is staying near Buttermilk Mountain, at the “huge private home” of Jim and Paula Crown — the family that owns Aspen Skiing Co. There are a large number of Secret Service agents with them, and the Crowns have reportedly relocated to Little Nell Hotel until things quiet down.
The Crown family is from Chicago, the Obamas’ home town. Paula Crown is a member of President Barack Obama’s President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. Federal Election Commission records show that both of the Crowns are big Democratic donors, with the exception of several isolated donations to Republican candidates such as Sen. Mark Kirk.

The so-called (by me) Hangover Marauder clocks in at a heart-stopping-and-restarting 1,400mg of caffeine — that’s as much as 14 regular cups of coffee!

(note to all, a simple cup of coffee for a buck is better than any concoction at starbucks, take my word for it)
American motorists have seen the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline rise above $3.50 a gallon on just three occasions, but it has never happened this early in the year. Analysts say it’s likely a sign that pain at the pump will rise to some of the highest levels ever seen later this year.
In 2008, average gasoline prices had hit inflation-adjusted records nationally by the summer, but they didn’t climb above $3.50 a gallon across the U.S. that year until April 21, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report. It happened again last year, but not until March 6.
But $3.50 a gallon gasoline is already here in 2012, weeks before refineries typically shut down for springtime maintenance, and weeks before the states switch from their less expensive winter blends of gasoline to more complicated and pricier summer blends.
“This definitely sets the stage, potentially, for much higher prices later this year,” said Brian L. Milne, refined fuels editor for Telvent DTN, a commodity information services firm. “There’s a chance that the U.S. average tops $4 a gallon by June, with some parts of the country approaching $5 a gallon.” MORE HERE

Oh, and you all know that when obama is ready, prices will drop like a rock and he will say it was him who got the prices back down, so please vote for me. Don’t fall for that lie.
By Friday, February 10th, an estimated 500 Europeans had died from the freezing weather gripping the continent. This is the price they and British citizens are paying for embracing the global warming hoax, spending billions for wind power when they should have been building coal-fired and other sources of energy to heat their homes and businesses.
As the British daily, The Telegraph, reported on Friday, “Serbia has started implementing power cuts in a desperate bid to stave off the collapse of its national grid as the country suffers the effects of days of freezing temperatures.”
I and others have been warning for years that the Earth has been cooling since 1998 and that the planet is on the cusp of a new ice age because the average length of an interglacial period of warmth between such ages is now coming to an end after the passage of some 11,500 years.
All aspects of global warming legislation and spending programs must be utterly reversed if we are not going to see huge losses of life and the disruption of entire economies.
The Ottawa Citizen published an Agence France Presse article on Friday reporting that “Thick ice closed vast swaths of the Danube on Thursday, crippling shipping on Europe’s busiest waterway, as the death toll from bitter cold across the continent rose…as it has every day for nearly two weeks.” The report noted that “Navigation was impossible or restricted in Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Austria, as ice covered the river or formed dangerous floes in shipping lanes.”
No shipping means no delivery of coal and oil and no shipping of food and other necessities. Europe is freezing over as the United States has been experiencing an unusually mild winter thus far. That, too, is likely to yield to the increased cooling of the planet and then, maybe, Americans will realize the threat to their lives that the closing of coal-fired plants, instigated by the Environmental Protection Agency, really means.
In England, the Mail, reported on Sunday, February 12th, that large numbers of its elderly citizens are being “frozen to death as fuel bills soar: hypothermia cases among the elderly double in five years.” England, now gripped by foolish green notions of renewable energy, has covered itself with wind turbines, despoiling its countryside and coasts while proving unreliable and incapable of meeting its energy needs.
America and the rest of the world have been horribly deceived by the United Nations Intergovernmental Climate Change Panel that continues to drive the global warming hoax. The lying scientists who got on the global warming gravy train, the politicians that embraced it, and the media that misled millions are all culpable, all responsible.
They should be driven from office, defunded, and chased through the streets like villagers in pursuit of Frankenstein.
People are freezing to death in their homes and in the streets. What will it take to drive a stake into the heart of the global warming monster?
(Mother Jones) — I’m sure this won’t make lefties start feeling warm fuzzies toward Guantanamo Bay, but the Navy is apparently trying to make the Cuban base green. McClatchy reports the effort comes complete with bicycling cops, a 270-foot-tall windmill, and solar-powered floodlights.
There are still 171 prisoners held at Gitmo, along 1,850 members of the military and contractors. The base spends $11.7 million a year on power and water, according to the article, which is among the reasons the Department of Defense is trying to make its energy use more sustainable:
Everything from diesel fuel to spare parts arrives by ship or aircraft, more than tripling the price of power, according to base estimates.
( I have an idea. Close the damn base down, give it back to Cuba, and put all those terrorists in a deep hole somewhere with nothing to eat but bacon. Oh, and finally open up trade with Cuba. I would love to have some real Cuban cigars!)
QUESTION OF THE DAY: WHAT’S YOUR OPINION OF OBAMA’S ‘TRUTH SQUADS?’
Dudes and Dudettes, this is a very important matter we have going on in this country right before our eyes. Please, I’m all but begging you to watch the above video to the very end and after you’re done with that you can click to watch part two of this where designated, which features ‘Christian, Muslim or Cult?’
When has this country ever had a president like the one we have before who uses law enforcement, attorney’s, prosecutors etc. to intimidate and silence us like the one we have holding office now…when?
I first heard about this story yesterday at various blogs, but Gateway Pundit led the way as far as I know…so big hat tip to them.
Here’s some of the information here:
Today the Obama Administration launched the return of the truth team goon squads.
The Obama campaign is today beginning a new effort to enlist and educate at least 2 million supporters for a “grassroots communications team” they’re calling the Truth Team.
“The goal is to ensure that when Republicans attack President Obama’s record, grassroots supporters can take ownership of the campaign and share the facts with the undecided voters in their lives,” the campaign said in a statement.
The teams will be first launched in 13 “swing states,” including Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.
The rollout also includes a social media blitz, directing supporters to three new websites: KeepingHisWord.com, which highlights Obama’s record and “promises kept”; KeepingGOPHonest.com, which highlights GOP policy positions; and AttackWatch.com, which fact-checks claims made against Obama on the campaign trail.
“If the other guys are going to run a campaign based on misrepresenting the president’s record – and their own – we have two options: sit back and let these lies go unchallenged, or fight back with the truth,” deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in an email. “We’re fighting back.”
Here’s what Ron Paul thinks of this:
Neil Cavuto reported today that the Obama campaign is trying to recruit two million people to respond to Republican attacks against the president. On Your World presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) sarcastically responded to the team, “I’ve been waiting so long to hear the truth … two million people rounded up to tell me what the truth is. Sounds more to me like maybe a propaganda team.”
He said being on the receiving end of attacks is what politics is about, but to round up a team to tell people that it’s “the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” is “silly.”

When the Congressional Budget Office first scored President Obama’s first stimulus program, they predicted it would cost $787 billion through 2019. But while $733 billion of Obama’s stimulus was spent through 2011, the law set in motion billions more in spending for years to come.
Last week, when the CBO released it’s annual Budget and Economic Outlook, it upped the final cost of the stimulus to $831 billion through 2019. In an earlier blog post, the CBO explained why the final stimulus price tag has risen by almost $60 billion.
(cost of obama’s failed economics is getting more and more expensive)
(Poll Position) — Most Americans believe the U.S. should reduce or eliminate its more than $1 billion a year in financial aid to Egypt.
In our national scientific telephone poll, we put this question to Americans: “Do you believe that the U.S. should maintain, reduce, or halt providing Egypt with more than $1 billion a year in U.S. financial aid?”
In response, 14% said maintain the aid the $1 billion+ a year in aid, 44% said reduce the aid, and 33% said halt the aid altogether.
Along partisan lines, independents (43%) and Republicans (40%) most favored ending U.S. aid to Egypt.
Poll Position’s scientific telephone survey of 1,232 registered voters nationwide was conducted Feb. 6, 2012 and has a margin of error of ±3%. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults.

Obama ignored his own VP and Chief of Staff in favor of the country’s largest abortion provider.
Jake Tapper of ABC News wrote a remarkable story last week revealing the players in the Obama administration’s internal debate on the contraception mandate.
According to Tapper, President Obama’s top advisers on the issue included Vice President Joe Biden, former White House Chief-of-Staff Bill Daley, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, former Domestic Policy Council Director Melody Barnes, White House Senior Advisers Valerie Jarrett and Pete Rouse, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, two U.S. Senators – and Planned Parenthood Federation for America CEO Cecile Richards [...]
Surprising to me was Richards’ unquestioned prominence at the White House. Why did the mainstream media not question an obvious benefactor of the contraceptive mandate being in on the conversation? Richards is truly in the inner circle. Pro-lifers knew Richards had influence, but to see in writing just exactly how much weight she carries is informative.
President Obama’s fourth budget has now been released, which allows for a relatively full accounting of deficit spending during his four years in office. The picture isn’t pretty, but it is revealing.
According to the White House’s own figures (see table S-1 here for 2011 to 2013, and table S-1 here for 2010), the actual or projected deficit tallies for the four years in which Obama has submitted budgets are as follows: $1.293 trillion in 2010, $1.300 trillion in 2011, $1.327 trillion in 2012, and $901 billion in 2013. In addition, Obama is responsible for the estimated $200 billion (the Congressional Budget Office’s figure) that his economic “stimulus” added to the deficit in 2009. Moreover, he shouldn’t get credit for the $149 billion in TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) repayments made in 2010 and 2011 to cover most of the $154 billion in bank loans that remained unpaid at the end of the 2009 fiscal year — loans that count against President Bush’s 2009 deficit tally.
Adding all of this up, deficit spending during Obama’s four years in the White House (based on his own figures) will be an estimated $5.170 trillion — or $5,170,000,000,000.00.
To help put that colossal sum of money into perspective, if you take our deficit spending under Obama and divide it evenly among the roughly 300 million American citizens, that works out to just over $17,000 per person — or about $70,000 for a family of four.
President Obama’s Treasury Secretary argued this morning that spending cuts and entitlement reform would hurt the economy more than tax increases on “the top 2 percent” of Americans.
“These revenue increases are focused on the top 2 percent of American taxpayers, not the remaining 98 percent,” Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner told the Senate Finance Committee today. “The increases in revenue we propose — which are roughly one percent, I say one percent of GDP — if structured as we propose, we believe would not have a material adverse impact on economic growth, particularly if compared to a comparable reduction in, for example, Medicare benefits or spending on infrastructure.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., talked down fear of the Muslim Brotherhood’s control in Egypt, as he defended United States foreign aid to Egypt, suggesting that secularists might block the worst forms of Sharia law.
“I’m not clear whether — how the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be,” McCain told Sean Hannity last night. “There are other representatives in parliament. I know that they will be an elected government,” he said.
McCain struck an optimistic tone when Hannity observed that the Egyptian people support Sharia law. “Well, first of all, I’m not clear what kind of Sharia law they are going to impose,” the senator said. “There are many secular and democratically inclined people who were part of that government,” he noted — but he also acknowledged that there “extremists” in Egyptian parliament, who “hopefully . . . will not achieve power.”
