One would think that these two liberal nuts would go with the majority of Americans when it comes to vote id. But no, they are on a mission to ruin our country to allow all illegals to vote, drive, get money from the government, and more. The two men above should be removed from office ASAP!
The Justice Department on Friday entered the divisive national debate over new state voting laws, rejecting South Carolina’s measure requiring photo-identification at the polls as discriminatory against minority voters.
The decision by Justice’s Civil Rights Division could heighten political tensions over the new laws, which critics say could depress turnout among minorities and others who helped elect President Obama in 2008. A dozen states this year passed laws requiring voters to present state-issued photo identification, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Although Democratic governors vetoed four of the measures, liberal and civil rights groups have raised alarms about the remaining laws. Opponents of the laws say they would discriminate against minorities and others, such as low-income voters, because some don’t have the necessary photo identification and lack the means to easily obtain ID cards.
Under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, several of the states that enacted voter-identification laws are required to receive federal “pre-clearance” to ensure that the changes don’t affect minority political power.
In its first decision on one of those new measures, the Justice Department said Friday that South Carolina’s law will discriminate against minority voters, though the department declined to take a position on whether the alleged discrimination was intentional. The law, passed in May and signed by Gov. Nikki Haley (R), requires voters to show a driver’s license or one of several other forms of photo identification.
UNESCO says won’t fund Palestinian magazine praising Hitler
After children’s magazine publishes article on girl’s dream in which Hitler tells her ‘Jews spread destruction all over the world,’ cultural agency’s director tells Abbas membership means ‘sharing values of tolerance, respect for others’
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization announced it would pull funding for a Palestinian children’s magazine due to anti-Semitic content.
The magazine, Zayzafouna, published an article in February written by a teenage girl who presented four role models: a medieval Persian mathematician, a modern Egyptian novelist, the Muslim warrior Saladin, and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
In the article, the author has Hitler telling her in a dream that he killed Jews “so you would all know that they are a nation which spreads destruction all over the world.” He advises her to be “resilient and patient concerning the suffering that Palestine is experiencing at their hands.”
“Thanks for the advice,” the narrator responds.
UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that “membership of UNESCO goes beyond raising the flag” at the organization’s headquarters. “It means sharing values – the values of tolerance, respect for others,” she said. UNESCO member states voted to accept the PA as a member in October.

(hey, this is the UN, so I am sure some part of it will continue giving the magazine money)
The Christmas story offers important lessons about Christian motherhood and vital lessons on fatherhood.
The Christmas narratives of Jesus’ conception, birth and infancy found in the Books of Matthew and Luke are generally read in church and Sunday school lessons each season. Joseph Parker, who pastors African Methodist Episcopal (AME) churches in the South, points to Matthew 1 and 2 for insight into fatherhood, then and now.
The man appointed as the human father of Jesus was Joseph, who Parker notes was in a difficult position for a father in his time because of his betrothal to Mary, who was carrying the baby Jesus, the Son of God. However, Parker points out that Joseph’s role was very meaningful and crucial to God’s plan.
“God is able to use Joseph in some very powerful ways,” Parker explains. “Joseph listens to God for himself and on behalf of his family — and as he hears from God, he obeys. He guides his family. He protects his family. He watches over his family. He’s a role model for his family as well.
“And so God didn’t need to send a million angels to protect Jesus,” the pastor comments. “All he needed was one faithful father who would hear from God and do what God told him. That’s all God needed to protect the Messiah of the world.”
In just these two chapters out of the entire Bible, Parker believes this aspect of the Christmas story details vital lessons to guide today’s fathers.
As for a model of motherhood, Parker suggests people read Luke 1 and 2 with the understanding that Luke is a doctor. So the details with which Luke shares about pregnancy for both Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, and Mary, the mother of Jesus, come alive from that perspective.

If nothing else, Joe Biden got the attention of the Afghan insurgents. “Look,” the U.S. vice president tells Newsweek’s Leslie H. Gelb in the magazine’s latest issue, “the Taliban per se is not our enemy“. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests.” Active and former members of the group’s senior leadership have one question: why didn’t the White House say so sooner?
Even now, after a decade of fighting the Americans, the group’s leaders tend to say they have nothing against the United States as a country—although they remain as committed as ever to resisting the U.S. occupation of their homeland. “We are not natural enemies of each other,” says Khazi Habibullah Fauzi, who served as the Taliban’s charge d’affaires in Saudi Arabia before the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. “We became enemies because of an external factor—namely Osama bin Laden, who was not an Afghan. Now he is gone, and the Taliban have little or nothing to do with Al Qaeda.” [...]
But not surprisingly the Taliban are also deeply embittered by Biden’s statement. “Biden is talking both sense and nonsense — if we are not your enemies, then what are you doing in Afghanistan?” the operative complains. “Is this some kind of joke, to say we are not your enemy after you occupy our country, imprison us in cages and kill tens of thousands of our people? We didn’t invite you here, and we never wanted to become your enemy.”
Taliban fighters in the field take an even tougher stance. “When I first heard the statement I laughed,” says a 30ish Taliban subcommander from southern Afghanistan. “I wondered if this was an American joke.” He and others are far from ready to forgive and forget. “You are only saying we are not enemies now because we have put up such a strong and unbeatable resistance,” the subcommander says. “Before 9/11, I didn’t hate America, But after ten years of war, after the bombings and atrocities, I now think the U.S. is enemy No. 1. And I’m proud to say that.”
Now what is going on here? Raffles, illegal donations, what? Is this even legal by federal law? How come the Justice Dept. is not investigating this? Oh, that is so dumb, the DOJ is linked to Obama’s asshole. He farts, they yell Racism!
(Fox News) — Actress Eva Longoria says she will have dinner and an “intimate conversation” on how to help U.S. President Barack Obama win reelection in 2012 with the winners of a raffle which people can enter by making at least a small contribution to his reelection campaign.
Longoria discussed her dinner pledge in an email sent out on Thursday by Obama’s reelection campaign to millions of Democratic voters nationwide within the framework of the president’s fundraising drive for the 2012 contest.
“In 2008, like so many of you, I dedicated a lot of my time to help Barack Obama win the presidency,” the message begins.
“Now, with 2012 around the corner, I wanted to get ready for the next election by sitting down for an intimate conversation with supporters like you to talk politics and the role we’ll play to win the 2012 election,” Longoria says.
The only condition for qualifying to be in the running to win the dinner with the star of the popular television series “Desperate Housewives” is to donate $3 or “whatever you can” to Obama’s reelection campaign.
So what are the brits going to do about these people?
LONDON (AP) — Britain’s international development minister says there are now more people from the UK training for terrorism in camps in Somalia than anywhere else in the world.
Andrew Mitchell said Thursday that Somalia poses a major threat, which may now be greater than the risks once posed by camps in Pakistan’s border regions.
Mitchell said “there are probably more British passport-holders engaged in terrorist training in Somalia than in any other country in the world.”
It follows warnings from the heads of Britain’s spy agencies about Britons training alongside Al-Shabab militants in Somalia.
WTF? Spend our tax dollars overseas to fund abortions? This is wrong on so many levels! These democrats are stupid and should be voted out!
Democrats in the House have written a new letter to pro-abortion President Barack Obama urging him to do more to spend taxpayer funds on paying for abortions in foreign countries and promoting abortion counseling.
The Democrats say they believe the Obama administration is too literally applying the Helms Amendment, which prohibits direct taxpayer funding of abortions in foreign countries using taxpayer-funded foreign aid. The liberal members of the House want the Obama administration to review the amendment and funding to determine if abortion counseling, information and abortions themselves can be legally paid for under a looser interpretation of the law.
“We are concerned that improper implementation of current foreign-assistance restrictions may be impeding our ability to provide even more effective and life-saving information and services,” they wrote in the letter, which The Hill obtained. “In particular, we are concerned that the Helms Amendment — which restricts but does not prohibit abortion funding — is being implemented as though it were an absolute ban.”
Note to all: Do not watch television programs that show you from start to finish how sausage, lunch meat, cat food and dog food, and other food items are made. Watching one now where they take WHOLE FISH of all sorts. Then puree the entire mess. Geesh….and then it ends up in various food products we eat.
