Mark Warner Says Pro-Lifers Threatening To What It Means To Be An American

October 6, 2008 | By | No Comments

The liberal Mark Warner is running against conservative Jim Gilmore for Senate in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Mark Warner says that the “Right to Lifers” and the National Rifle Association and Homeschoolers and the Christian Coalition is,

“Threatening to what it means to be an American”

Why do these liberals hate normal people?

Warner and Obama believe in abortion on demand through nine or ten months.

Warner and Obama do not believe in the right to bear arms.

Warner and Obama do not believe parents should educate their children.

Warner and Obama believe in homosexual marriage.

Warner and Obama believe in our surrender in the wars.

Warner and Obama believe in raising our taxes.

This is normal?

Listen to the short audio clip of Mark Warner, his voice dripping with disdain, on our conservative values,

“I was told that if I voted for Barry Goldwater that there would be war in Southeast Asia.

And sure enough, I voted for Barry Goldwater and there was war in Southeast Asia,” went the popular joke after Democrat Lyndon Johnson was elected president.

We are now told that if we vote for John McCain we will have endless war in Iraq. I will vote for John McCain…and if Obama steals the election — we will, indeed, have endless war in Iraq…

Jesse Jackson Kissed My Wife, Media Appearance: Education Choice With School Vouchers

October 6, 2008 | By | No Comments

charmaine_screenshot_jesse.JPGYears ago, Charmaine appeared on CNN — Jesse Jackson’s Both Sides with Mary Hartwood Futrell. And Wade Horn, at the time with Children’s Bureau, HHS.

L to R: Futrell, Jackson, Horn, Yoest

Jesse Jackson kissed Charmaine’s hand; a gallant gesture. Who knew he was such a gentleman?

If the Alert Voter wishes to learn what Obama would do in Education; K to 12, we can see that Obama would do exactly what Jackson would do.

They both would follow the teachers’ union.

When Your Business Blogger(R) was moving kith and kin back to Ol’ Virginnie, we decided on a particular High School.

But we had to live in a particular neighborhood. I could not send my kids to the school of my choice and live where I wanted to live. The Teachers’ Union dictated where I would live, if I wanted that school.

I could not choose my school.

Sounds like something out of Soviet Russia…

Conservatives simply want to send their children where they want. We pay the taxes, but we cannot decide.

Liberals will send their (unaborted) children to where ever the Teachers’ Union so directs.

No wonder Michelle Obama is not proud of her country…or maybe she is.

Jesse Jackson’s Both Sides is no longer on the air. This edition was originally broadcast in 1992. Education Choice for our children has not changed much.

McCain wants school choice. Obama does not.

McCain wants change. Obama does not.

Watch the show here:

Full Disclosure: Your Business Blogger(R) has an undergraduate degree in Education and is currently an adjunct professor of management in the Northern Virginia Community College.

UPDATE: Alert Readers will recall that Jesse Jackson was once Pro-Life.

Charmaine reminds me that Jackson actually kissed her on the cheek. Which is less intimate that a kiss on the hand. For Hollywood. I guess…

The Obama Cult Song

October 2, 2008 | By | 3 Comments

The following video clip is based on the actual Obama-cult song recorded by (non-aborted) children who were manipulated into supporting a presidential candidate…and, of course, a clip from the famous movie “Cabaret.”

This might be a more accurate representation than the letter sent to the Americans United for Life office in Chicago this week. From the Party of Death.

Eyeblast at the jump.

The Party of Death by Ramesh Ponnuru

September 30, 2008 | By | 5 Comments

One Democratic operative warned, “We can’t just be the party of death.”

The Party of Death does not care for The Party of Death.

The Party of DeathRamesh begins his book,

The party of death started with abortion, but its sickle has gone from threatening the unborn, to the elderly, to the disabled; it has swept from the maternity ward to the cloning laboratory to a generalized disregard for ‘inconvenient’ human life.

Matthew Eppinette at AUL reports,

A good indicator of how the pro-life position is winning is the extreme rhetoric people use in opposing it. The more ground the pro-life position gains, the more extreme the rhetoric we hear form those who oppose us. Hate mail is a good case in point.

Ponnuru writes,

Everything you think you know about Roe v. Wade is a lie…

Media Appearance: Charmaine vs Planned Parenthood on FOX

September 24, 2008 | By | 2 Comments

Charmaine recently debated Sarah Flowers a consultant from Planned Parenthood. They compared the abortion positions of Obama and McCain.

Obama favors abortion through all three — or four trimesters, as Laura Ingraham quips — and McCain votes for Life.

Watch the clip and let us know what you think.


Thank you footnotes, all over the news and Kansas Abortion Timeline as the first ever Attorney General to take on Planned Parenthood and Dr Tiller

Planned Parenthood, AUL debate Obama on Born Alive all over the news Jill Stanek writes,

I cannot even keep up with all the articles and news shows reporting on, Barack Obama’s opposition to the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act, our Gianna ad, and Obama’s anti-Gianna ad.

Barack Obama Faith Tour Flops With Pro-Life Voters in Jerry Falwell’s Backyard

Lynchburg, VA (

For the new Barack Obama “faith tour” to have any success, it needs to be able to draw young and evangelical voters.

Yet, at its first stop in the Virginia back yard of well-known pastor Jerry Falwell, just 15 people showed up for the event.

The Obama campaign has signed up evangelical author Donald Miller, Pepperdine University professor Doug Kmiec and former Indiana Congressman Tim Roemer, for the “Barack Obama: Faith, Family and Values Tour.”

The trio made a stop at Liberty University, which is home to over 10,000 evangelical students from across the county and a conservative bastion in a state Obama is targeting heavily in this election. Yet, his “faith tour” failed to resonate with people there.

Billy Valentine, director of Catholics for McCain, a grassroots organization of young Catholics not affiliated with the McCain campaign, told he’s not surprised the event flopped.

“Young Evangelicals and Catholics alike can’t be deceived by Obama’s empty rhetoric, and instead realize that an Obama administration would laugh in the face of the human rights issues they passionately fight for, such as the right to life,” he said.

See more on Obama and Planned Parenthood, let the man speak for himself.

Margaret Sanger, Barack Obama & Planned Parenthood

September 23, 2008 | By | 2 Comments

margaret_sanger.jpgThe most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.

Margaret Sanger

Founder Planned Parenthood

Barack Obama voted against his state’s Born Alive Infant Protection Act. His vote would allow babies born alive — from a botched abortion — to die by withholding treatment.

Obama’s concern was that his vote might lead to overturning Roe v Wade which made abortion legal through all nine months – and beyond.

obama_thumbs_up.jpgHis philosophy is not new.

Barack Obama

Supports Planned Parenthood

This thinking was born, so to say, at the turn of the last century and made “popular” by Margaret Sanger, founder of modern Planned Parenthood.

In 2003, Edwin Black wrote a national bestseller War against the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign To Create A Master Race.

War on the WeakAuthor Edwin Black does not oppose abortion. But he is nevertheless horrified by the disgust that elite Americans feel for the weak, “the least among us.”

Elitists like Obama.

Edwin Black writes,

Sanger’s solutions were mass sterilization and mass segregation of the defective classes, and these themes were repeated often in [her book] Pivot of Civilization.

“The emergency problem of segregation and sterilization must be faced immediately. Every feeble-minded girl or woman of the hereditary type, especially of the moron class, should be segregated during the reproductive period.

Otherwise, she is almost certain to bear imbecile children, who in turn are just as certain to breed male defectives. The male defectives are no less dangerous.

Segregation carried out for one or two generations would give us only partial control of the problem.

Moreover, when we realized that each feeble-minded person is a potential source of endless progeny of defect, we prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble-minded.”

Edwin Black then guides us to Margaret Sanger’s solution,

Sanger was willing to employ striking language to argue against the inherent misery and defect of large families. In her book, Woman and the New Race, she bluntly declared,

“Many, perhaps, will think it idle to go farther in demonstrating the immorality of large families, but since there is still an abundance of proof at hand, it may be offered for the sake of those who find difficulty in adjusting old-fashioned ideas to the facts.

The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

It would appear that elitists like Obama, in keeping with Margaret Sanger’s world view, might have prefered that the Palins abort Trigg, Sarah’s Down syndrome newborn.


To avoid the “pain and despair” these children have and cause, so says Obama.

Because an unexpected child is a “punishment.”

What kind of political party would even consider a man with this world view to govern?


Edwin Black tells us more and connects the events in War Against The Weak,

During the period between the wars, the American [eugenics] movement viewed National Socialism [in Germany] as a rising force that could, if empowered, impose a new biological world order. [National Socialism] eugenicists promised to dispense with the niceties of democratic rule.

So even if America’s tower of legislation, well-funded research and entrenched bureaucratic programs still monopolized the world of applied eugenics in the 1920′s, National Socialism promised to own the next decade.

American eugenicists welcomed the idea.
