Barack Obama: Messiah or Greek God?

By now I’m sure that we have all heard the Messianic claims of “The One”. You know, things like “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal” or “a light will shine down, from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany and you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack” (outlined ever so subtly in this McCain ad). And its clear by the undying devotion of the Obamatrons that he is not the only one who believes that he has “become a symbol of America returning to our best traditions”.

But it seems that Obama is tired of being seen as a mere Messiah and wants to go for a somewhat more mythical appearance. Or atleast that’s what the stage at his inaugural spe… opps, I mean nomination acceptance speech would imply.

You see Obama has opted out of the traditional setting for an acceptance speech, (you know, big American flag, flashy American styled graphics on big screen tvs, American themed confetti and ballons falling from the ceiling) for a style more fitting of a Greek god (you know, big greek pilars, 80,000 cheering worshipe… opps, I mean supporters in a massive stadium, an epic finish with thousands of explosions that light up the sky and leave people in majestic awe… otherwise know as fireworks).

But hey the Messiah tag isn’t Obama’s fault, its McCain’s, right? So this Greek god talk must be McCain’s fault too! Right, OK wait… No. Actually, Obama’s Greek god status is apparently nothing compaired to McCain’s wealth. Yea, that one is gonna stick…

Biden and Pelosi are called out for being… well… Liars

Pretty Pelosi

So it seems that Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are up to their old lying ways, again. (UPDATE: And Again!)

Added to her long line of falsehoods and mistruths (exactly like… um.. all politicians) is a fresh fabrication she made to Brokaw on meet the press. In a if-it-wasn’t-disturbing-it’d-be-funny kind of way she claimed that, on the issue of the Catholic Church’s position on abortion, “I have studied [it] for a long time”.

And what did the apparent expert on Catholic history and doctrine conclude about the issue of abortion?

Well when Brokaw reminded her that “The Catholic Church at the moment feels very strongly that it (life) begins at the point of conception”

She retorted him with her expert opinion that “I understand.  And this is like maybe 50 years or something like that.  So again, over the history of the church, this is an issue of controversy”

Now her comment of “and this is like maybe” might tip you off that she didn’t quite know what she was talking about but in case you weren’t sure here’s some helpful evidence that shes just flat out lying…

From the first written catechism of the christian church circa 70 AD: “You shall not procure [an] abortion, nor destroy a newborn child”

Then there’s what Saint Hippolytus said in 228 AD: “Women who were reputed to be believers began to take drugs to render themselves sterile, and to bind themselves tightly so as to expel what was being conceived, since they would not, on account of relatives and excess wealth, want to have a child by a slave or by any insignificant person. See, then, into what great impiety that lawless one has proceeded, by teaching adultery and murder at the same time!”

And then there’s the case of Tertullian, who is known as the founder of the Latin Church, who wrote this in198 AD: “In our case, murder being once for all forbidden, we may not destroy even the fœtus in the womb, while as yet the human being derives blood from other parts of the body for its sustenance. To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing; nor does it matter whether you take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to the birth. That is a man which is going to be one; you have the fruit already in its seed”

Now, of course, Nancy didn’t cite these fathers of Catholicism. Instead she cited another famous father who wrestled with “ensoulation” (not abortion, he thought it was always wrong). That famous father was Augustine and Pelosi tried to use his genuine and honest working through of the question of “ensoulation” to try and claim that her pro-abortion positions are acceptable to the Catholic church.

However, not only are her pro-abortion positions unacceptable to the Catholic church but they would have most assuredly been unacceptable to Augustine himself because he believed that “To deny that the young who are cut out limb by limb from the womb, lest if they were left there dead the mother should die too, have never been alive, seems too audacious”.

I think the best description of Augustine’s beliefs comes from The New Dictionary of Theology which states: “Augustine, while condemning abortion, wrestled with the question of ensoulment (at forty-six days for Augustine) and the formed and unformed fetus, concluding that there was no solution to this, but that the killing of either was to be condemned”

So this much is blatantly clear, the Catholic church isn’t now and never has waffled on its position regarding abortion. The Catholic church is and always was Pro-Life, not just over the past 50 years. This conclusion is supported by Archbishop Donald Wuerl who said “The current teaching of the Catholic Church on human life and abortion is the same teaching as it was 2,000 years ago”. (and no, I’m not Catholic but you don’t have to be just to know their consistent position on abortion)

But don’t worry Nancy, you’re not the only high profile Democrat to flat out lie about the history of the Catholic church’s position on abortion over the centuries. That’s right the new vice presidential candidate Joe Biden has a history of misrepresenting the history of his church in order to make it seem like his pro-abortion stances and his faith don’t really conflict.

In a 2006 interview he stated “That debate in our church has not morphed, but changed over a thousand years. It always is viewed by the church as something that is wrong, but there’s been gradations of whether it was wrong. You know, from venial or mortal sin, as we Catholics say, and versions of it”

Now naturally both of these remarks have pissed off many Catholic leaders and politicians. So much so that Biden has even been warned to stay away from communion by the Archbishop of Denver. I find these responses to be appropriate and overdue from the pro-life community.

I would urge the same kind of reactions from other prominent church and pro-life leaders. We, as a community, need to regrow a pair and start denying certain privileges from those who support actions that are so completely contrary to all that is good and decent on God’s creation… you know, like murdering your own children before they even have a chance to be born.

UPDATE: This isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I called for new action but atleast they are making a statement…

And here I thought the Republicans were the racially divisive ones, silly me

Looks like the Democrats don’t mind throwing racial slurs at each other…

I mean we all know they don’t mind tossing extremely serious accusations of racism at the other side without a single example or shred of evidence but thrashing each other that’s new!

Oh wait…

No its not. (I could go on and on)

UPDATE: Union leaders calling their own white members racist just because they don’t support Obama…

Best undercover reporting EVER

Moonbats
Moonbats

These videos have got to be THE funniest interviews I’ve ever seen in my life, and trust me I’ve seen some good stuff (like the videos at Newsbusters). The video’s I’m speaking of involve Jason Mattera (of Hotair.com) going undercover as a left wing nut job and interviewing the protesters at the DNC in Denver. While its certainly true that simply watching left wing nut jobs talk about….. well.. anything… is hilarious in and of itself Jason manages to subtly but masterfully lampoon the geniuses right in front of them without them ever catching on!

Now, inevitably, you’re going to read this and say to yourself… ok CP (that means College Politico for all you newcomers out there) ridiculing far left nut jobs isn’t the hardest thing in the world to do… even right in front of them… even without them realizing you’re doing it. And, sure, you would be correct because, I mean, lets face it, these people are so detached from reality that a metal shovel to the face probably wouldn’t faze them.

However, what makes these videos exceedingly enjoyable and sets them apart from, say, Fox New’s coverage of the protesters is just how brilliantly Jason Mattera absolutely burns the protesters while simultaneously making them his friends. These videos are the undercover reporting equivalent to Ali’s famous rope-a-dope tactic. I was brought to near tears by the amazing performance Mattera put on and I cannot wait for more.

But don’t take my word for it… check out the two posts so far (Warning: Some Cursing):
Encounters with the left
Marxists Unite!

My favorite lines so far:
Woman: “I have leg hair dude, I’m a human being. I have body odor and I have hair on my body.”
Mattera: “I think you have more than me.”
Woman: “Yea”

Mattera: “I think we need more atheists like you to tell the Christians what the bible says because they obviously don’t read it objectively and you can read it objectively”
Guy: “yea”

I will keep updating this post everytime a new video is posted so y’all come back now ya hear?

UPDATE: Ironic… Ward Churchill, who was fired for not being able to come up with original material, has shown up at an event which had to plagiarize EVERYTHING about itself (recreate ’68).

UPDATE: New videos!

UPDATE: Even Newer Videos! (the best edition yet)

Obama’s attempt to be as cool as a 12 year old girl fails horribly…

So it seems that Barack Obama’s master plan to text all of his adoring obamatons with his vice presidential pick before anyone else was a complete and total failure (a lot like the pick itself). Yes, you heard it right, the plan heralded by “unbiased” reporters and preteens alike took a turn for the worst last night.

Yup apparently supporters who signed up for the special texts were not the first to be notified, despite the promise from the Obama campaign, and not by a long shot.

Some of the first reports in the media came around 11pm on the east coast and the conformations came to the media around 1am. So what time did the loyal supporters get their special notifications? 3am on the east coast… 3am, yea… great job picking a time to notify people who, at least for a while, liked you. (Even my little sister doesn’t text me at that time)

In case you didn’t take the time to do the math thats a full 2 hours after everyone else in the world already knew. Well, so much for that idea.

It’s too bad the wait is over though. It was getting awfully fun watching all the “professional” “journalists” fawning over their cell phones and waiting for what one can only imagine is their first text message (and one from their most favoritest bff ever none the less) as though they had discovered a sort of electronic botox or the 21 centuries fountain of youth.

UPDATE: Looks like the gaffe machine is up and running for Obama-Biden ’08…

UPDATE: Obama failure made even bigger in contrast to McCain’s VP roll out

UPDATE: 3am text… is it a possible Kennedy-like response to Hillary 3am ad? You know… ask not who can answer the phone for you at 3am – ask who you can answer the phone for at 3am.

Where’s the windfall tax, Obama?

Apparently its time to add yet another industry to the list of those who have a larger profit margin than the oil industry. Already included in that list are industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, Telecomm services, and software. But while those industries can have up to a 20% profit margin, oil is at about 7%, the new addition to the list really jacks up the price for their product, so high that 87.5% of it is pure profit!

The only ones capable of such outrageous windfall profit-mongering are those despicable capitalist-pig corporations, you say? well… not exactly. I’m sorry to disappoint you but the one making this obscene profit is none other than Barack Obama. Yes you read correctly, it seems that Barack Obama has started to charge $8 for something that most likely costs him about $1 to produce.

But whats more shocking than that fact is the fact that what hes charging $8 for is usually given away for free. So what has he started charging for? Campaign lawn signs… other wise known as a free, viral, and effective form of advertising. (But I guess this isn’t the only thing Obama wont give away for free)

Now, it is certainly true that both sides charge to buy these simple signs on-line but this is different. As described in Monte Bute’s article in the St. Paul Pioneer Press the national policy of the Obama campaign is “to charge a nominal fee for lawn signs” even if you go to your local campaign headquarters even if you volunteer for the campaign.

Don’t worry too much though because “An occasional exception might be made for an outstanding volunteer” and “if someone balks at paying for a lawn sign and really wants one, we’ll work something out”.

Isn’t that nice?

In light of this, the next time Obama makes the claim that the oil industry is essentially evil and joyfully practices price gouging on the American public which, in turn, causes him to call for a “windfall profits tax” you just may want to call him up and ask him why he doesn’t consider his lawn sign profits to be of the windfall persuasion?

I think I will…
