Disclosure in Campaign Adds – Dead!

July 28th, 2010

Yesterday the Senate has proven once again that it’s all about winning and very little about the truth.

We are coming up on the 2010 midterm elections and although there was a chance yesterday of at least not going further into the gutter with campaign ads, it was voted down.

Last year the Supreme court ruled that the law limiting campaign contributions by special interest groups and corporations  was a violation of the first amendment.

Their decisions basically opened the flood gates for special interest, Corporations and even foreign governments to poor as much money into campaign ads for or against a candidate. The problem is we all know these ads are full of lies and half truths and have very little to do with facts that would prove whom is the better candidate.

Yesterday the senate tries to pass a law that would at least require these ads to include who was funding them and a list of major donors listed in the ads. This law was voted down 57 -41 .. you need 60 votes in the senate to pass a law.  All 51 Democratic senators voted for the law and all 41 Republicans voted it down.

There is now no limit or accountability of how much money an individual, corporation  or organization can spend to get their candidate elected… As I wrote before the FTC seems to look the other way about false advertisement when it comes to campaign election ads, so this means there is very little regulation and nothing to stop the group with the most money to spend, from swaying an election, maybe based on lies.

Is this how we Americans really want out elected officials selected?

Wake Up America… Demand the FTC does it’s job this year and regulate campaign ads.  These ads both from the right and the left need to be factual and not a bunch of sliced and diced sound bites put together to distort the true meaning of the original content.

We Americans deserve the facts!

This is Chilling… The Truth!

July 22nd, 2010

Here we go again… one of my friends sent me the email posted below and asked me to do the research.

First I will post the email and below it I will post my findings.

In
1952
President Truman
established one day a year as a
“National day of Prayer.”
—————————————————————————————————————————-
In
1988
President Reagan
designated the
First Thursday in May of each year as
the National day of Prayer.
—————————————————————————————————————————
In June
2007
(then)
Presidential
Candidate Barack Obama
declared that the USA Was no longer a
Christian nation.
—————————————————————
This year
President Obama
canceled the
21st annual National Day
of Prayer ceremony
at the White
House under the ruse
Of “not wanting to offend anyone”

————————————————————————
On September 25, 2009
from 4 am until 7 pm,
a National Day of Prayer
for the Muslim religion was Held on Capitol Hill,
Beside the White House.
There were over 50,000 Muslims that
Day in D.C.

HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS!

I guess it Doesn’t matter
if “Christians” Are offended by this event -
We obviously Don’t count as “anyone” Anymore.
The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated.

This is not a Rumor
Go to the website
To confirm this info:
(http://www.islamoncapitolhill.com/)

Pay particular attention to the very bottom of the page:
“OUR TIME HAS COME”
I hope that this information will stir your spirit.

The words of 2 Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, Who are called by my Name,
Will humble themselves And pray,
And seek my face, and Turn from their Wicked ways,
Then will I hear from Heaven
And will forgive their Sin and will heal Their land.”

We must pray for Our nation, our communities,
Our families, and especially our children.
They are the ones who are going to suffer the most.
If we don’t PRAY
May God have Mercy.
IN GOD WE TRUST.

Please pass this on

Maybe someone, somehow can figure out a way to put America
back on the map as it was when we were growing up,
a safe place to live, and by
The Ten Commandments and Pledge of Allegiance.
For Obama to continue as our president
is an INSULT TO OUR FOUNDING FATHERS
AND DISGUSTING TO EVERY RED-BLOODED AMERICAN.

With just a little research this is what I found out about the above email

You may cut and paste this truth into a response email to the list that was sent the original email.. if you like and please use my name.

RE: Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA Was no longer a Christian nation.

Truth: I posted what Obama actually said below, but the interesting thing is how just one word left out can change the meaning.

“Given the increasing diversity of America’s population, the dangers of sectarianism have never been greater. Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

The one word this BS email left out was the word “JUST”.   Kind of an important word in this statement I would think.

RE: This year President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse Of “not wanting to offend anyone”

Truth: On May 7, 2009, the President did issue an official proclamation in observance of the National Day of Prayer, but he did not have an official ceremony at the white house.  The lies in the statement are as follows:

While the Bush and Regan administration did hold ceremonies at the White House, the Clinton administration did not, so there is no 21 year annual ceremony that was canceled.

“not wanting to offend anyone”   This was never said and is a fabrication… here is what was released by the press secretary at the time “According a statement by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the President would be spending some time in private prayer that day – “as he does every day.” “

RE:

While this email wants you to believe this picture was taken during and at what they are calling “”a National Day of Prayer for the Muslim religion was Held on Capitol Hill,Beside the White House”” The truth is the photo was taken when  President Obama toured a mosque in Turkey during his April 2009 tour.

Also there was no “National Day of Prayer for the Muslim religion ceremony” This event they refer to was organized by a Muslim group as a Day of Islamic Unity and had nothing to do with Obama.

The truth is out there people, all you need to do is a little research… the bigger question would be, why would someone take the time to put together these lies?  The originator of this email did not just make an honest mistake; they went to great lengths to rewrite history.

They manipulated events, photos and quotes to make a point that is based on fabrications and lies. Some of these lies were given validity on Fox news (no surprise here) but the resent events of Mrs. Sherrod and what Fox news and right wing blogger were able to do to her life based on manipulated lies is just the most resent proof of what the far right is willing to do to poison the truth. (if you are not aware of this story do you research Unbelievable!)

These people are posing as patriots and would want you to believe they are saving this country, when once the truth is learned it is obvious they are destroying this country by spreading lies designed to spread hatred towards the people they want to destroy.

While this country is and has always been mostly a Christian country, have we forgotten what the first Amendment actually says? “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”

This means that we Christians have no more rights in this country than any other religion, nor should any real patriot expect more rights… to the contrary a true patriot would be defending the first amendment and therefore the rights of all religions to practice their faith her in the USA.

The only thing sadder than the people that make up and write these lies, are the people that blindly believe them to be truth without doing their own research.

Wake up America!
