Anti-Americanism in the Sports Media

Timothy Birdnow

ESPN commentator Kevin Blackstone disses the National Anthem.

According to Newsbusters, Blackstone launched into a tirade against the "War Anthem":

"You are conflating a war anthem with a simple game,” the guest shot back. "When you have military flyovers and the military symbolism that goes on in sports, I think you’ve got a problem.”

End excerpt.

He further refered to the singing of the Star Spangled Banner as something bad;

"whether it’s the singing of a war anthem to open every game, whether it’s going to get a hot dog and being able to sign up for the Army at the same time, whether it’s the NFL's embrace of the mythology of the Pat Tillman story”

End excerpt.

I argued in my article about the Left's war on football that the sports media is as liberal (if not more so) as the rest of the chattering class, and this just proves the point.

Sports are as much a political tool as any to liberals. Professional sports were integrated before the mainstream of American society, for instance, and that was no accident. Most sports have lost much of their more anarchic or physically aggressive natures thanks to rule changes over the years, and that too was no accident. The Progressives understand that sports are an outlet to the great unwashed and that manipulation of our games changes the public perception. It's a natural place for liberals to congregate; a regulated world that ultimately shields the watcher from reality.

Doubt me on that? Then explain Keith Olbermann...

The Squeeze on Catholic Education

A.J. Cameron

Every student wins when Common Core is defeated, regardless of religious affiliation!

It is encouraging to realize others are as concerned about this unconstitutional intrusion of the classroom.

Hopefully, we can help people realize this is just one of many lies coming at us from bully puppets inside of D. C. and their puppeteers!

> Cardinal Newman Society
> November 8, 2013
> Dear Friends,
> There's a big push to nationalize education through the "Common Core" school standards. Nothing requires Catholic schools to adopt this latest fad, but they are under pressure to do so–and many already have.
> You and I know that Catholic schools are among the best in the country, because our core is our Catholic Faith!
> The Common Core standards were crafted by little-known "experts" at the behest of the morally reprehensible Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which together with the Obama administration and Washington trade associations have purchased the support of many governors, state superintendents and business leaders.
> Sadly, this week your Cardinal Newman Society turned up another Gates Foundation grant—more than $100,000 to the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), which has been aggressively pushing Common Core in our Catholic schools. We're urging Catholic leaders and educators to slow down and consider Common Core's many flaws, including threats to Catholic identity and academic quality.
> reillyLast night, I had the chance to discuss this troubling development with Raymond Arroyo on his EWTN show, The World Over. You can watch it here.
> As part of that effort, we released our survey of Catholic High School Honor Roll principals, who expressed great concern about the Common Core. I discussed that survey last night on EWTN as well. If you missed it, you can watch it online here, or you can catch one its re-broadcasts, which are Sunday at 7 p.m. and Monday at 10 p.m. EST.
> Also this week, we co-sponsored a meeting of Catholic school superintendents, principals and other Catholic education leaders to discuss the Common Core and what to do about it. This off-the-record strategy meeting was organized by our friends at the National Association of Private Catholic and Independent Schools (NAPCIS) and co-sponsored by several Catholic groups and dioceses. While the discussion was confidential, I can assure you that your prayers and support for our work are paying off.
> There is a growing commitment in the Church to renewing faithful Catholic education. In this month of thanksgiving, I couldn't be more grateful. Thank you!

Seal Team Six Inherently Racist? at American Thinker

Timothy Birdnow

A politically correct brouhaha is erupting at Washington University in St. Louis over some white students dressing as Seal Team Six and Osama Bin-Laden. This seems to have offended a Muhammedan student and now the campus is in an uproar. I write about it at American Thinker this morning.

So now kids can't dress up as military heroes for fear of offending aliens in our midst? I was unable to ascertain the status of the complainant, but if she is a U.S. citizen she certainly doesn't know where her allegiance is supposed to lie. Also, the University is despicable for siding against the country.

Yet more proof that colleges in this land are nothing but communist factories.

Dennis Prager said this about our universities:

""For at least two generations, countless conservative parents have seen their adult children reject their core values. ... [M]ost parents with traditional American and Judeo-Christian values have not thought it necessary to articulate these values to their children on a regular basis. They assumed that there was no need to because that was true for much of American history, when the society at large held those values. ... [O]ne of the founders of progressivism in America, Woodrow Wilson, ... said in a speech in 1914, 'I have often said that the use of a university is to make young gentlemen as unlike their fathers as possible.' Eighty-eight years later, the president of Dartmouth College, James O. Freedman, echoed Wilson: 'The purpose of a college education is to question your father's values,' he told the graduating seniors of Dartmouth College. Even now, too few conservative parents realize how radical -- and effective -- the university agenda is."
(Courtesy of the Federalist Patriot)

This is just more proof.

Obama, economics and your life

Jack Kemp forwards this:

On Obama, economics and our life.
Extremely interesting facts and graphs.

The second paragraph of the Mr. Wheeler’s statement is perfect.
Jack Wheeler is a brilliant man who was the author of Reagan's strategy to break the back of the Soviet Union with the star
wars race and expose their inner weakness. For years he wrote a weekly intelligence update that was extremely interesting
and well structured and informative. He consults(ed) with several mega corporations on global trends and the future, etc.
He is in semi-retirement now. He is a true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to everything. He is also a somewhat
well-known mountain climber and adventurer.
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience,
no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing
but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by
his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to
people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained
in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading
was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect
Liberal Messiah.

It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination
from her.Obamamaniais beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still
believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or
logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it.
The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him:
Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.
I never saw this in such graphic form.

Proud moment if you’re a socialist?
Why Work when living is free?
Can it sustain?

Outrageous, don't they take enough money from us already?

CGI Head Old Buddy of Michelle Obama

Timothy Birdnow

Here is something interesting; the company that built the Obamacare website is headed up by an old classmate of Michelle's from Princeton.

According to the Daily Caller:

"First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate Toni Townes-Whitley is a top executive at CGI Federal, the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website.

Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.

Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.[...]

As reported by the Washington Examiner in early October, the Department of Health and Human Services reviewed only CGI’s bid for the Obamacare account."

End excerpt.

Hmmm. A no-bid contract for this enormous and high-powered website? A friend of the Bride of Bullwinkle's? And this was a company that got fired by Canada for incompetence. And they used technology that is over ten years old to do it. Why? Probably to keep milking the U.S. taxpayer as they would have to keep patching the system.

This story alone would be grounds for impeaching Il Duce. It is cronyism at it's most egregious.

The Last Word on the Cuccinelli Race

By Selwyn Duke

There has been much analysis of the Virginia governor’s race in which Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe edged out Republican Ken Cuccinelli by two points. Liberals have portrayed the outcome as heralding the death of the Tea Party, while conservatives have, among other things, blamed the GOP establishment for failing to provide the financial backing that could have put Cuccinelli over the top. But the truth?

The Virginia race bodes well for the Tea Party in 2014.

One problem with most of the analysis involves a common human failing: people want simple, one-dimensional explanations and don’t truly wrap their minds around the fact that an outcome can reflect multiple factors. So we hear that Cuccinelli’s loss was due to establishment GOP neglect or even hostility, or media bias or poor Republican tactics or vote fraud or Fluke-foolish young women or Robert Sarvis the libertarian vote siphoner.

Replace every "or” with an "and” and you have close to a complete explanation.

Having said this, I’d like to focus on Sarvis and his seven-percent vote share. As you probably know by now, it has been revealed that an Obama bundler was helping to finance the Sarvis campaign in order to split the conservative vote.

And it likely worked.

Election analysis seems to indicate that if the conservative votes won by Sarvis had gone to Cuccinelli, the Republican would have won this very close race. This is why even libertarian stalwart Ron Paul said that voting for Sarvis would be "insane.”

Now, I’m not indulging sour grapes, nor am I descending into the error of single-factor analysis. My point is this: the Democrats obviously believed that despite their media advantage and war-on-women propaganda and the GOP’s tactical timidity, they couldn’t win without splitting the conservative vote. Theirs was not the behavior of people confident in the strength of their ideology and record.
It was an admission of weakness.

This bears repeating. The Democrats have tacitly acknowledged that they could not win without splitting the conservative vote — which was the majority.

To buttress this point, consider what American Thinker’s C. Edmund Wright  HYPERLINK "" wrote about Michael Barone’s statistical election analysis: "Barone's figures show that Virginia voters disapprove [of ObamaCare] by 53-45%, strangely close to the vote tally of Cuccinelli and quasi-libertarian Robert Sarvis combined.” In other words, the Democrats had an eight-point ideological disadvantage with respect to the main issue of the day and likely could not have won a head-to-head race against Cuccinelli.

So what will happen in November 2014? It’s hard to predict outcomes a year before an election, and the Democrats’ dirty-tricks specialization is always a factor difficult to quantify. But they just may need all the tricks they can muster to hold their own, as the GOP’s ideological advantage will likely carry over into the next election.

Republican Disgrace in Virginia

Timothy Birdnow

The GOP has shown it's hand in the Ken Cuccinelli/Terry McCauliffe race.

Eric Cantor's former chief of staff actively campaigned for McCauliffe, for example.

In fact, a host of GOP insiders actually helped McCauliffe, as Breitbart has chronicled. Michael Blomberg spent $346,000 to campaign for McCauliffe, for example. Many others refused to give any aid to Cuccinelli. In fact, the national GOP cut Cuccinelli's funding on OCTOBER 1, forcing him to face an opponent flush with SEIU cash with only what he could scrounge up. Cuccinelli received a scant $3 million from the RNC. McCauliffe outspent Cuccinelli by a staggering margin.

McCauliffe had a ten to one advertising advantage over Cuccinelli in the critical final days.

Cuccinelli was also the victim of many dirty tricks. Robocalls said he supported Obamacare, for example. But the biggest dirty trick was the entry of "libertarian" Robert Sarvis, who it was revealed on election day was funded by Obama bundler Joe Liemandt.

Jarvis' campaign pulled away the margin of victory from Cuccinelli. In fact, this election was under one percent.

This could easily have been won. Why did the GOP bail on this critical governorship?

Because they wanted to punish the Tea Party. This was about the Establishment maintaining their power. Please note that the Democrats barely tried in New Jersey, a much bluer state than Virginia. Why? Because they - and the RINO wing - WANTED Christie to win. They want him to be the standard bearer for the GOP against Hillary Clinton. They know he's a loser. Cuccinelli would have been a major powerhouse had he won, and he could well have turned Virginia back into a red state. Virginia has become purple in recent years because it has been colonized by Washington D.C. Cuccinelli could have stopped the hemmorhaging.

So now the Elites in the GOP have what they wanted; a Tea Party failure and a RINO success. I hope their great victory over their own base feels good, because that base is going to walk very soon, and the RINOs will become the new Whigs.

I will not vote for Chris Christie in the general election. We are dying here, and that from a thousand paper cuts. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, and I am not insane. We have to try something new at this point; the political war is lost as long as we stay with the GOP as it is currently constituted. The RINO wing is as much our enemies - and the enemy of the United States - as are the Democrats. At least the Democrats don't pretend otherwise.

What was done to Ken Cuccinelli was disgraceful.

Marvel Rolls out Muslim Girl Superheroine

By Selwyn Duke

It must be really exciting being a kid today. Denied the strength that "lies in our diversity,” youngsters languishing in the unenlightened 1960s had to content themselves with banal white male superheroes such as Superman, Spiderman and Ironman. But not only has affirmative action created a Hispanic Spiderman (perhaps a white Hispanic?); a homosexual Pink…I mean, Green Lantern; and a Batwoman reintroduced in 2006 as a lesbian (the irony is that she was originally introduced in 1956 as a romantic interest designed to dispel rumors about Batman’s homosexuality); now Marvel Comics is giving us a female Muslim superheroine. Writes  HYPERLINK "" The Telegraph:
Marvel Comics is bringing Ms. Marvel back as a 16-year-old daughter of Pakistani immigrants living in Jersey City named Kamala Khan.

The character - among the first to be a series protagonist who is both a woman and Muslim - is part of Marvel Entertainment's efforts to reflect a growing diversity among its readers while keeping ahold of the contemporary relevance that have underlined its foundation since the creation of Spider-Man and the X-Men in the early 1960s.

Writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona, working with editor Sana Amanat, say the series reflects Khan's vibrant but kinetic world, learning to deal with superpowers, family expectations and adolescence.

But the really exciting part involves Kamala Khan’s unique superpowers. According to my sources, she can:

leap tall bacon-processing plants in a single bound;
turn a slave-owning warlord into a prophet;
crush ancient Buddhist statues with her bare hands;
turn back time to the eighth century;
don an x-ray impermeable burka;
be 72 virgins all by herself;
use the I slam Ray to turn Western dummies into dhimmis in double time;
straighten out the homosexual superheroes;
be sexually attacked and not be charged with adultery; avoid getting married to a man 35 years her elder until she’s at least 12.
The one thing she cannot do, however, is obtain a driver’s license.

Swamplands Act of 1850

A.J. Cameron forwards this e-mail:

I read your email, which was forwarded by A. J. Cameron, with interest, as I live in California, about 100 miles north of Sacramento (Los Molinos).

I am attaching a PDF and a DOC of the Swamplands Act of 1850. Understand that though this was enacted in 1850, and dealt with Arkansas, it is applicable to all government lands and those conveyed out (sold) that were owned by the government (underlying title), which was thereby relinquished).

First, some background. I was a Professional Land Surveyor in Florida, and continued in Land Surveying until about 5 years ago, when I retired. As such, I became well versed in land law, both federal and in the various states I have worked in, including California.

Land confiscation is generally conducted by the state, county, or city. It is done in this manner in that the federal government convinces the state and local government that they have the authority to confiscate land if certain conditions are met. In other words, they create "color of law" situations, and the state (and local) government aren't going to argue, at least if they think that they can get land for free.

As you read the Act, you will note that the condition was set on the government to identify lands that were not to be sold to the public. This was done as, once the land was sold, the government relinquished any means of utilizing that land, except by eminent domain and compensation. simply, the relinquished title and interest in the land so conveyed.

There is more to be considered, and that is just how it comes to be a justifiable matter, where the landowners will lose in court. That is a consequence of the "rules" that the Supreme Court has established in dealing with matters that come before it, resulting in lower courts adopting the same application of those "rules".

The pertinent rules to this discussion are:

6. The Court will not pass upon the constitutionality of a statute at the instance of one who has availed himself of its benefits.

7. When the validity of an act of the Congress is drawn in question, and even if a serious doubt of constitutionality is raised, it is a cardinal principle that this Court will first ascertain whether a construction of the statute is fairly possible by which the question may be avoided.

You can better understand the implications presented by reading About Ashwander v. TVA

So, if anyone seek any "benefit" form a statute, he has left the Constitution behind and is bound by the entire set of statute, without any constitutional consideration.

I think that under the current circumstances, it might be worthwhile to "test" what appears to be true, by virtue of what I have presented.

I can be reached at (530) 384-0375

Recap of SWAP meeting last night in San Leandro

A.J. Cameron

Here is what is happening in CA, sure to find its way towards us. This is part
of the sustainable development/Agenda 21 behemoth that is ushering in smart
meters, Common Core, the elimination of God, personal property, etc.

We have a lot to fight for, and that is what it is going to take to repel the

A. J.

I attended the SWAP meeting last night. There were maybe 40 people in
attendance. There were about 8 to 10 people there in opposition. It was
led by a trained facilitator. It was in a theatre style seating
arrangement. The main speaker bored us to tears with his mumbo jumbo. They
took questions after his speech and each person had to get up and speak in
a microphone. We got it all on camera. Steve Kemp was there. I took out
the Calif Essential Habitat map (see attached) and spent my time informing
th entire audience about the land grabbing then I got into an argument
with a the program director of the Bay Area Open Space council in the
hall. We went at it for about 10 minutes. It was such a staged meeting.
She got up to speak and had a stack of documents about "Bay Area Missing
Linkages (see attached)" and "Wildlands Network stuff". She pretended like
this was the first time she had been to one of these meetings. She asked
the speaker from DFWS if they would be amicable to receiving input, i.e.,
her maps and docs and asked if it was ok to provide them so they could
consider maps, etc from non-governmental sources. What a sham. The Bay
Area Open Space council and DFWS work together regularly so her asking if
they would take these items into consideration and handing them over at
this meeting was just a public display of Kabuki Theatre to benefit the
rest of us.

After the meeting was over my friend Pam told me that while I was outside
grilling the Bay Area Council person some guy who is a member of the
Cattlemen's Association was asking them about their affiliation with the
Calif Rangeland Coalition. He said that Mark Pelz was at one of their
meetings showing the same map that the blonde woman just showed. I don't
have all the particulars, but sounds like he was starting to put two and
two together and he didn't like what he was hearing.

Anyway, we left shortly after that. The youtube will be up soon.

I'll tell you that the best thing I ever did was blow up the Calif
Wildlands map to 2'x3' on vinyl. I carry it everywhere I go and within 3
minutes I can describe the wildlands corridor system to any lay person.
The map is a product of the DFWS, CalTrans and FHWA with their logos on
the bottom. It clearly shows how they intend to overlay this map on top of
private property, which essentially puts any property in those areas at
risk of being coerced into some type of conservation easement or regulated
out of their land use.

These people are not hiding what they are doing anymore. They are openly
talking about their plans and think it is just fine to plan over the top
of peoples private property.

Obama Boat

Dana Mathewson forwards this:

Affordable Boat Act

The government has just passed a new law called: "The Affordable Boat Act" declaring that every citizen MUST purchase a new boat, by April 2014. These "affordable" boats will cost an average of $24,000-$124,000 each. This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, insurance, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs.

This law has been passed, because until now, typically only financially responsible and working people have been able to purchase boats. This new law ensures that every American can now have an "affordable" boat of their own, because everyone is "entitled" to a boat.

In order to make sure everyone purchases an affordable boat, the costs of owning a boat will increase on average of 250-400% per year. This way, working taxpayers will pay more for something that other people don't want or can't afford to maintain. But to be fair, people who can't afford to maintain their boat will be regularly fined and children (under the age of 26) can use their parents boats to party on until they turn 27; then must purchase their own boat.

If you already have a boat, you can keep yours (just kidding; no you can't). If you don't want or don't need a boat, you are required to buy one anyhow. If you refuse to buy one, you will be fined until you purchase one or face imprisonment. For those that cannot afford one, they will get a free boat with a monthly check for all ownership costs listed above at the taxpayer's expense.

Failure to use the boat will also result in fines. People living in the desert, inner cities or areas with no access to lakes are not exempt. Age, motion sickness, experience, knowledge, nor lack of desire are acceptable excuses for not using your boat.

A government review board will decide everything, including; when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your boat along with how many people can ride in your boat and determine if one is too old or not healthy enough to be able to use their boat. They will also decide if your boat has out lived its usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories, or a newer and more expensive boat. (Cash for Clunkers guidelines will be used).

Government officials are exempt from this new law. If they want a boat, they and their families can obtain boats free, at the expense of tax payers. Unions, special interest and major donors are also exempt.

If the government can force Americans to buy health care, they can force you to buy a boat....or ANYTHING else..'s that stupid...

The Coming Peak Water Scam

Timothy Birdnow

Tim Ball argues that "Peak Water" will be the next environmental scam.

He's right; the push is on to claim we are running out of water - a completely renewable resource. Global Warming has about run it's course, but Agenda 21 must proceed!

Christie Still at War With GOP Base Despite Win

A.J. Cameron

This bolsters my belief that Christie will be the Democrat's Presidential candidate in 2016. One thing I didn't see mentioned is Christie placing Muslims into the NJ judiciary.

I believe this election and the comments are being orchestrated now, laying the foundation for a 'fundamental transformation' of Christie from Republican to Democrat. The puppeteer-controlled media will package him as a 'cross-over' candidate, and he will be 'Plan A', while elitist Jeb Bush will be the Republican & 'Plan B' plant of the puppeteers.

Breaking News from

Despite Easy Win, Christie Still at War With GOP Base

By John Gizzi

By winning Tuesday night in a landslide election for his second term as governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie moved so far to the left, it may be difficult for him to win the Republican nomination for president come 2016.

The GOP governor won in one of the bluest states — where President Barack Obama beat Republican Mitt Romney by 18 points in 2012. To win, Christie had to morph close to not only blue-state values and views, but become close to Obama himself — and he did just that.

Key positions Christie has taken in New Jersey — backing Al Gore's view that global warming is "for real" and caused by humans; his public slamming of the National Rifle Association and conservatives such as GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky; his acquiescence to gay marriage — all will come back to haunt him in what likely will be a fierce Republican primary fight ahead.

Editor's Note: Govt Prohibited From Helping Seniors (Shocking)

Last year Christie infuriated Republicans by embracing candidate Obama when the president arrived in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, just days before the presidential election.

At that point, polls showed that momentum for Romney stopped and shifted dramatically to Obama.

Many in his own party felt Christie was giving a boost to the Democratic president at the expense of Romney. Christie also declined to invite Romney for a visit to the storm scene.

"Christie's strategy of embracing Democrats and criticizing conservative causes and figures has worked in his big re-election tonight, but in terms of his national ambitions, he's playing a dangerous game," David Pietrusza, historian and author of three best-selling books on presidential election years, told Newsmax.

"He enjoys little margin of error, having endangered his standing with his party's national right-of-center base," Pietrusza said.

During his governorship and campaign, Christie played the role of happy Republican maverick, earning kudos from shows like MSNBC's "Morning Joe," while angering some of the key constituencies of the modern Republican Party.

Chief among them is the NRA, so influential with swing voters in elections that even Democrats are loath to criticize them.

Christie has stridently attacked the Second Amendment group. He called "reprehensible" an ad run by the NRA that pictured Obama's daughters and pointed out that they attended a school protected by more than a dozen armed guards.

"I think we need to have a large, national discussion ... and gun control has to be part of it, too," Christie said in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., last December.

Christie noted that New Jersey has the second toughest gun control statutes in the country — laws the NRA has called "extreme."

Christie has also angered Christian conservatives, a group that by some estimates tallies nearly a third of Republican voters.

In August, Christie signed a law that would levy criminal penalties against parents and Christian ministers if they counsel youth to change their sexual orientation or gender identity. One couple recently filed suit against Christie, charging the law infringes on their rights as parents.

And while Christie repeatedly proclaimed opposition to same-sex marriage and vetoed a bill to legalize the unions, he surprised many conservatives when the state Supreme Court ruled to legalize gay marriage — and Christie ordered the state's acting attorney general not to appeal the decision.

"It's definitely not a profile in courage," Brian Brown, head of the National Organization for Marriage, told Politico. "You've got a court in New Jersey that doesn't understand that it's supposed to be interpreting the law, not making it up out of thin air."

Christie withdrew his appeal because he doesn't think there's a likelihood of succeeding. "There's no doubt it's going to affect him" politically in a 2016 Republican primary, Brown said.

Ralph Reed, head of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, told Newsmax that Christie "has a case to make to social conservatives."

Reed, a strategist in presidential campaigns and the first executive director of the Christian Coalition, suggested that Christie might emphasize to social conservatives that he is a faithful Roman Catholic and that he oversaw the defunding of Planned Parenthood in his state.

"I think in some ways, he'll face the same challenges that Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani faced," Gary Bauer, president of American Values and himself a former presidential hopeful, told Newsmax.

"He's a Northeastern Republican and so far no one has proven that such candidates can deliver anything in the Northeast, and they end up having a hard time appealing to the base in the Midwest and the South."

Bauer also voiced concerns about Christie putting the brakes on the appeal of the judicial ruling favoring same-sex marriage because "it fits into a bigger trend that Republicans are being told to follow by the consultants — to just ignore the issue" of same sex marriage.

The New Jersey governor also made national news by calling Sen. Paul and other Libertarian Republicans "dangerous" for opposing government surveillance programs.

Editor's Note: Govt Prohibited From Helping Seniors (Shocking)

Garden State conservatives almost always give low marks to Christie's appointees to key positions.

His first state attorney general — an appointed position in New Jersey — was Paula Dow, a registered Democrat who took strong stands in favor of abortion and gun confiscation and said "no" to New Jersey joining in the state attorneys general lawsuit against Obamacare.

Pietrusza, the historian, offered up a comparison of Christie to a GOP moderate from a previous era.

"Christie may be on the path not of the Wendell Willkie of 1940 — who won the nomination as a liberal Republican and fresh face — but of the Willkie of 1944 who had so alienated his party's base that he crashed and burned instantly," he said.

John Gizzi is chief political columnist and White House correspondent for Newsmax.

McCaskill Staff to Host "Kitchen Table" on Obamacare

Timothy Birdnow

I received this e-mail from the McCaskill camp this morning. I am almost certainly unable to attend at that time, but we need a strong showing of the Tea Party to give 'em hell. Anyone who can make it please do; we need every angry man, woman, and child we can muster.

Dear Mr. Birdnow,

My name is Brendan Fahey and I am a staff member for U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill. On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, on behalf of the Senator, I will be hosting a "Kitchen Table Talk" in St. Louis City at the St. Louis Public Library - Buder Branch (4401 Hampton Avenue) from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The purpose of this meeting is to reach out to you, to listen to your thoughts and ideas about federal policies and legislation and to take them back to the Senator.

These "Kitchen Table Talks" also serve, in part, to inform you of the services that are available through Senator McCaskill's regional offices. The Senator's staff throughout the state are able to assist you on a range of federal government issues. If you are currently having an issue with a federal agency, I will be happy to discuss that with you and put you in touch with the member of the Senator's staff best suited to help with your issue.

Should you have any questions, please contact me at or by calling (314) 367-1364. I hope you will be able to join me in St. Louis on November 13th.


Brendan Fahey
Field Representative
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill

This is Sustainable Development/U. N. Agenda 21 coming to people's utilities. I will be sharing, as requested. People need to know there is more to the attacks than the MARC-led municipal assaults, Common Core, etc.

Forwarded message:

Here's a short video of a Smart Meter hearing in Oklahoma (about 3 min).

Please continue to share and educate your friends. If anyone has any contacts in Fulton please share this information with them. There is a pilot program there and I would love to speak with some of the homeowners. Feel free to give them my contact information.
