Hey Libtard.

Since you have the balls to hide behind the flag this is a good question for a Moonbat like you.

Did you hear Obama say we don't leave anyone behind? he was talking about the storm, but then FEMA never went to help. I think it wasn't until frikkin yesterday that the bums showed up on Staten Island, but the Jive-Ass Obama got his photo ops.

we don't leave anyone behind?

We had F-16s in Italy that could have made Benghazi in 25 minutes to the embassy where we had lasers on the ground to nail the terrorist mortor positions.

We had a C-130 that could have deployed as well.

We also had personnel in country that never got the order to help.

Instead, Obama left them behind. Four dead.

Now the Moron & Chief just lies and obfuscates.

Hillary Clinton is a complete joke and useless.

What does your commie self say, as you hide behind your flag?

What you mean is: he does not support homosexuals!

As a matter of fact he is a supporter of and a former leader of The Boy Scouts Of America. That can't be good for queers.

And Obama is the leader of and key supporter of the group that has sexually molested those Boy Scouts over the yeasts.

I would not be at all surprised if he didn't give Sandusky amnesty!

Homosexuals Bully The Boy Scouts

Gay activists bully the Boy Scouts

I’ve been warning you that the current push to legitimize homosexual conduct and so-called gay “marriage” represents today’s greatest threat to religious liberty. I’ve told you about attacks against iPhone apps for the Manhattan Declaration and Exodus International, as well as a boycott of Chick-fil-a.

Their crime? Supporting marriage as only between a man and a woman and having the temerity to not support so-called gay “marriage.”

The Boy Scouts’ politically incorrect stands on homosexuality and atheism have long put this great organization in the extremists’ cross-hairs, and now the pressure is getting even more intense.

The Scouts prohibit open homosexuals from serving as leaders. That’s because the organization believes that “homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the obligations in the Scout Oath and Scout Law to be morally straight and clean in thought, word, and deed.”

How’s that for straight talking, friends?

But now, in the St. Louis area, parent associations working with the public schools are severing ties with local Scouting groups rather than face the risk of lawsuits alleging—you guessed it—discrimination based on sexual orientation.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, in March, the Missouri PTA advised all of its 420 member units to stop hosting charters with the Boy Scouts because the agreements put them in legal jeopardy.

An official with the state PTA said the advice to local associations is not a criticism of the Scouts but rather flows from the liability issue. The official said,“We’re not telling them, you absolutely can’t.“We’re saying, it’s not in your best interest to do that.” A Scouting spokesman, however, says insurance provided by the Boy Scouts would preclude any financial or legal jeopardy to PTA sponsors.

But for cash-strapped schools and PTAs, just the threat of a lawsuit is enough to get them to abandon the Boy Scouts. And the gay-rights groups know it.

In fact, in the name of fighting discrimination, the gay-rights extremists are working overtime to shut down—to discriminate against—one of America’s finest organizations, which aims “to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes.”

In other words, the Scouts want to help youngsters in “Doing the Right Thing,” which just happens to be the title of the six-part video series on the restoration of ethics in America.

So what are we Christians to do amid this latest controversy? One thing’s for certain. We can’t cut and run, which is exactly what the gay-rights extremists are hoping we will do.

Here are a couple of suggestions. First, pray for the Scouts, that they will be able both legally and financially to practice their beliefs in our supposedly free society. Second, send money or donate your legal expertise to help whenever these harassing lawsuits arise. And third, support your local Boy Scout troop. Become a Scoutmaster or other volunteer.

The Boy Scouts have served God, country, and all of us for all these years. Now it’s our turn—and privilege—to serve them.

Axlerod is on TV now trying to defend President Obama on the failure to protect our diplomats in Benghazi, saying no one cares more about our representatives working abroad than President Obama.

He goes on to cite as an example President Obama's attendance at the ceremony when the coffins of those killed in Benghazi returned to the US.

- Perhaps President Obama could have shown how much he "cared" by more closely monitoring the security developments in Libya after he committed US troops to deposing Gaddafi in the face of Congressional objections.

"From the start of the Libyan uprising in early 2011, the Central Intelligence Agency built up an unusually large presence in Benghazi. By this September, two dozen or so operatives and contractors monitored Ansar al-Shariah and other militant groups. Deteriorating security after the war was no secret. U.S. intelligence noted militant camps in the mountains near Benghazi, including "al Qaeda leaning" fighters, according to Tuesday's New York Times."

- Perhaps President Obama could have shown how much he "cared" by insuring that our diplomats in Libya had the increased security protection they needed to defend themselves against a "coordinated attack".

"The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News."

- Perhaps President Obama could have shown how much he really cared by meeting with world leaders at the UN. Instead:

"President Obama on Monday flew up to New York from Washington, rode in his motorcade to ABC’s studios and sat down for an interview on “The View.” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was not far away, in the Waldorf-Astoria, meeting with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan.

As dozens of world leaders gathered for the annual opening of the United Nations General Assembly ... the contrast between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton could not have been starker.

Mr. Obama, his re-election campaign in full swing, continued to make his pitch to American voters... The president will address the General Assembly on Tuesday but, breaking with tradition, has no meetings set with his counterparts.

That task he delegated to Mrs. Clinton, who churned through the first of dozens of meetings she will have over the next week. They deal with some of the most pressing foreign policy crises the administration has faced since taking office in 2009, like the deadly protests in the Islamic world and the confrontation between Japan and China over a handful of unpopulated islands."

Mrs. Clinton met President Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan ... as well as Mr. Karzai. By the end of a 12-hour day, she had also met with President Mohamed Morsi of Egypt....

... In between, Mrs. Clinton held an emotional meeting with President Mohamed Magariaf of Libya, who reiterated his apologies for the Sept. 11 killings of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi....

Meanwhile, Mr. Obama was filming a segment for “The View,” the talk show hosted by Whoopi Goldberg and a quartet of sharp-tongued television celebrities....

Mr. Obama was scheduled to attend a reception for world leaders at the United Nations on Monday night. But a campaign adviser acknowledged privately that in this election year, campaigning trumped meetings with world leaders.“Look, if he met with one leader, he would have to meet with 10,” the aide said, speaking on the condition of anonymity."

We need a president who doesn't choose being "eye-candy" on The View over meeting with world leaders to discuss "the most pressing foreign policy crises the administration has faced since taking office in 2009."

Homosexuals are masters at manipulation, always trying to play the victim!


The six ways homosexual activists manipulate public opinion

Tags: homosexuality

May 31, 2012 - Anyone who is concerned about the influence of the homosexual agenda on reshaping traditional values must become intimately familiar with the major tactics that homophiles commonly employ in order to anticipate them and respond in charity and truth. Homophile strategists are very adept at manipulating public opinion with an arsenal of six tactics that are based upon deceptions and half-truths:

Exploit the “victim” status;
Use the sympathetic media;
Confuse and neutralize the churches;
Slander and stereotype Christians;
Bait and switch (hide their true nature); and

One reason these tactics have worked so well is that homophile activists have succeeded in marketing a harmless and friendly image of their movement. They have lulled people into thinking that the wider society will not be adversely affected by their radical social agenda. Homosexual strategists have, in many cases, toned down their extreme rhetoric and have cloaked their agenda in soothing language. Over time, however, many have begun to think of themselves and others as “homophobes” or “haters” if they oppose any aspect of the homosexual rights agenda — or, incredibly, even if they question it in their own minds.

Generals and attorneys often wish that their opponents would write a book. Interestingly, leaders of the “homosexual rights” movement did exactly that. Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen clearly laid out this agenda in the marching orders of the movement, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear & Hatred of Gays in the 90s.[1] This volume is an absolute treasure chest of information for those pro-family stalwarts who are actively engaged against the homosexual rights agenda.

By far the most popular homophile tactic is the claim to victim status, which is a very powerful, almost paralyzing, weapon that gives them a distinct advantage in the public square. Kirk and Madsen summarize the potent effectiveness of the victim status:

In any campaign to win over the public, gays must be portrayed as victims in need of protection so that straights will be inclined by reflex to adopt the role of protector.… The purpose of victim imagery is to make straights feel very uncomfortable; that is, to jam with shame the self-righteous pride that would ordinarily accompany and reward their antigay belligerence, and to lay groundwork for the process of conversion by helping straights identify with gays and sympathize with their underdog status.… the public should be persuaded that gays are victims of circumstance, that they no more chose their sexual orientation than they did, say, their height, skin color, talents, or limitations.… gays should be portrayed as victims of prejudice.

Does this sound familiar? It does if one pays attention to any mainstream media coverage of these controversial issues as they play out in law and society. But the victim status requires a story to back it up. Thus, perhaps the most common lament of the garden-variety homophile revolves around the alleged “tidal wave of anti-gay” hate crimes.

Didn't bozo promnise the unemployment rate would be 5% by now and that he would reduce the deficit?

Close GITMO?

This economy sucks even worse now since Obama took office and people have given up looking for work.

Income is down for families in the middle class.

HOPE & CHANGE sucks.

Vote the bum out!

An analysis of FBI statistics on hate crimes committed against homosexuals during the time period 2000-2008 shows that the probability of any individual homosexual being the victim of a hate crime during his or her entire life span is slightly more than one percent.[2] Interestingly,“gays” are more likely to commit hate crimes against “straights” than “straights” are to commit hate crimes against “gays.” According to the FBI, there are 3.98 hate crimes committed by each million heterosexuals annually against homosexuals, and there are 4.44 hate crimes committed by each million homosexuals annually against heterosexuals.[3]

Violence against homosexuals by others gets all the press, but it is interesting to note that the great majority of anti-”gay” violence is committed by other “gays.” The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) is the leading tracker of violence against “gays” in the United States. According to the NCAVP’s statistics on anti-”gay” violence, 83 percent of all violence committed against “gays” is carried out by other “gays” in domestic situations. This does not even count “gay-on-gay” violence committed outside the home.[4]

This confusion is now pervasive in society, and questioning the agenda is simply not to be tolerated – especially among America’s youth.

For example, the classical notion that universities should be “arenas for the free exchange of ideas” has been completely discarded in the United States. More than three-fourths of U.S. colleges and universities now possess codes of conduct that ban behavior and speech based upon, including many other things,“homophobia.” The danger that these codes represent to academic freedom far outweighs their usefulness. This has already been amply demonstrated, as many colleges have severely punished students for merely desiring to debate the topic of homosexuality.

The squashing of dissenting views on homosexuality in the classroom has been going on for decades now. In 1991, a student at the University of Michigan announced his intention to establish a counseling program to help homosexuals leave their lifestyle. He was dragged before a panel of university administrators, unanimously found guilty of “sexual harassment,” and was thrown out of the university.[5] In 2000, the Student Judiciary of Tufts University voted officially to “derecognize” the Tufts Christian Fellowship (TCF) club for taking into account, for purposes of selecting leaders, the beliefs of a member whose views of Scripture and homosexuality were opposed to their own.[6] The TCF was stripped of funding, not permitted to use the Tufts name, not permitted to meet in any room that required a reservation, and not allowed to advertise or announce any of their events or meetings. In 2011, a Fort Worth, Texas high school student was suspended from school for reportedly saying,“I’m a Christian, and I don’t think being gay is right,” during a class discussion.[7] And teachers don’t have it any easier. In 2010 a professor at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign was accused of “hate speech” and relieved of his teaching duties for teaching Catholic doctrine on homosexuality in his Introduction to Catholicism class.[8]

Political science professor Jean Betheke Elshtain, while highlighting the dangers presented by codes against racism, also points out the difficulties associated with all punitive codes of this nature:“My hunch is that, over the long haul, the upshot of such endeavors [college speech codes] will not be a purified, racist-free, collective student consciousness, but a simmering backlog of resentment at being labeled as a racist, even if one has never committed a racist act or uttered a racist slur.”[9]

No one should attempt to deny homosexuals their basic human rights; which are the same basic rights that we all have as being sons and daughters of God. But it has gotten to the point where we have to fight to preserve our own basic rights — the rights to free speech, religion, assembly, and teaching our own children our values – in order to protect our own families and institutions.

Those who promote homosexuality are forcibly tearing away more and more of the rights of Christians, and the situation is rapidly deteriorating. Who could have possibly imagined just a few years ago that companies would start firing people for writing pro-family articles on their own time, or business owners would be sued for refusing to participate in homosexual union ceremonies?

Just remember when you go to the polls.
A vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for positive change in America.
A vote for Obama is a vote for Sharia law, 50 million murdered babies, 10% unemployment, a police state via the U.N.,$10+ gas and a total firearms ban.
The choice is yours America.
