Ron Paul States Truth.....Again

By The Reverend Published: January 31, 2008

Despite the gushing Beacon editorial today, echoing establishment conventional wisdom about John McCain, the Arizona senator came off last night as no more than a "stay the course" George W. Bush clone. McCain's (and Romney's) neo-conservatism was on display for all to witness last night. If you liked W.'s foreign policy, you're gonna' love John McCain's as well.

If you believe America has the right and the duty to pre-emptively attack countries of the world even if those countries pose no direct threat to America, then McCain's your man. If you want a new president who will keep our military in Iraq up to 100 years if it will prove the surge has worked, then McCain's your man. If you want another authoritarian, like Junior, who will smirk at and mock all who don't want endless wars of imperialism, then McCain's your man.

FISA Farce

By The Reverend Published: January 28, 2008

The Senate activity late this afternoon over the FISA bill rewrite has a certain sadness to it.

Senate Republicans, co-conspirators with the Junior White House since 2001, are still to this day going along with the childish wishes of the worst president America has ever known. It's sad to witness the Republican Senators, at this late date of the failed and internationally embarassing Bush Junior presidency, being so quick to comply with even more Junior ass-covering attempts.

Obama Overwhelmingly Wins South Carolina, Bonus Rant

By The Reverend Published: January 27, 2008

While this morning's pathetic McLatchy piece in the Beacon does its best to wear racism on its sleeve.....the truth about the Democratic South Carolina Primary is that Barack Obama won in a landslide over Hillary Clinton....55%-27%....

The Reverend After Dark: The Black Keys

By The Reverend Published: January 26, 2008

The Reverend's family will prepare for the Lord's Day tomorrow by attending the "Rain, The Beatles Experience" service this evening at Playhouse Square. We attended last year and the rapturous rush of exhilaration was simply...how shall I say it....an uplifting spiritual experience. One worth repeating.

Until I return...I love these guys.....here's Akron's finest....The Black Keys...doing "Your Touch" (2:44)

When A Treaty Isn't A Treaty

By The Reverend Published: January 26, 2008

The New York Times gives us the latest White House gamesmanship approach to keeping our military in Iraq endlessly. The contempt this administration has demonstrated towards our law based and Constitution guided nation is no longer breathtaking, though it is that. It is now simply predictable.

I did find some twisted humor, however, in this.....

"That's Where All The Money Is Going"

By The Reverend Published: January 25, 2008

In last night's NBC, GOP candidates debate, the economy was the first topic covered by NBC's moderators. After listening to the standard supply side nonsense answers (more and deeper tax cuts plus more giveaways to business) from McCain, Romney and Giuliani, Timmy Russert finds himself on the receiving end of a Ron Paul delivered backhand.

And it was soooo...oooo deserved....

Believe In The Magic Act

By The Reverend Published: January 24, 2008

The real purpose of the invasion, regime decapitation and subsequent destruction and military occupation of the country of Iraq.....was to establish a permanent United States military presence smack dab in the center of the middle east from which American power could be projected throughout the region.

Stock Market.....And Last Night's Democratic Debate

By The Reverend Published: January 22, 2008

I'm typing this at shortly after 8AM Tuesday morning. The stock market is getting ready to prove to America that a deep recession is now upon us. One that's been brewing for quite awhile. DOW futures were down some 600+ points as of last night, world stock exchanges plummeted yesterday, did so again overnight, and no one really knows how far the panic effect will drive the market down today and tomorrow.

UPDATE: Wow....we're really in a lot of trouble.....the FED cut rates by 3/4 of a percent!!

Is The Republican Party A Criminal Organization?

By The Reverend Published: January 19, 2008

In today's post some background is needed on the little known and littler heard story of Republican felonious activity in the 2002 election in New Hampshire. I still find it curious that the 2002 felony convictions for vote suppression activity by the Republican Party is still kind of a secret to the American people.

Read this account, then watch the video......then we'll talk.....

Michigan Primary, Nevada Debate, And The Recession

By The Reverend Published: January 16, 2008

I don't have as much time this week as I usually do. Here's a few comments about yesterday's political activity.

First....Republicans held a primary in Michigan that Willard Mitt Romney won over John MCain by 39%-30%. The Beacon this morning has the headline, "Romney's business message spurs GOP."Link The "business message" Romney had for Michigan was this....

"Unitary Executive" Intelligence Statement

By The Reverend Published: January 15, 2008

According to this White House and to those who still support it (29%), there is only one branch of government in the United States....especially when we are at war.....and let's be fair here.....when AREN'T we?

The great scam of the current presidency has been to make us belieive we are now permanently at war. Through the phony repetitive use of one of the most ignorant bumper stickers ever, "war on terror"....with it's mandatory alphabetic nonsensical abbreviation...GWOT. My goodness, I get all disgusted again just typing the rube baiting stupidity. But I digress.

Ron Paul Calls Out The Republican Party

By The Reverend Published: January 14, 2008

In the FOX GOP "debate" on 1-10-08, Carl Cameron asks the candidates about the so-called Reagan Coaltion of voter groups supporting the Republican Party.....whether that Coalition of cultural conservatives, low-tax, low regulation conservatives and national defense conservatives, still exists, and if it does will those same folks still support Republican candidates? Listen to how Ron Paul answers the question after he gets done backhanding Cameron for baiting him on a stupid 9-11 question.....

What About Those Bush Tax Cuts?

In the Thursday night FOX confab with the GOP nominees for president, Chris Wallace actually asked a question The Reverend would have asked.

A Divided GOP, John McCain And The Bush Doctrine

By The Reverend Published: January 11, 2008

As Republican voters have looked around at their potential candidates for this November's presidential election, they have been less than satisfied. The Republican Party, during this election cycle, is struggling to find a candidate who will appeal to all the factions traditionally recognized within the party.

GOP's Neo-Con Candidates Shamelessly Bully Ron Paul

By The Reverend Published: January 10, 2008

The great thing about the GOP primary, other than Preacher Mike Huckabee and his bass guitar playing, is the foreign policy realism of Ron Paul. Bless his soul. In the following clip, see how the four neo-cons....McCain, Giuliani, Thompson and Romney do their best to humiliate the good Doctor. From ABC's GOP candidates debate Saturday 1-5-08.

The Numbers From New Hampshire

By The Reverend Published: January 9, 2008

There's no question that the polling in New Hampshire in the last 72 hours was skewed somehow....or New Hampshire Democratic primary voters changed their minds in the waning hours before the vote. Hey, stuff happens. My enthusiam for an Obama win was fueled by the Iowa numbers and then the subsequent New Hampshire polling numbers showing Obama ahead in the Granite State. That....and the huge crowds Obama has been drawing.

Supremes Rush To Aid GOP Over Voter ID

By The Reverend Published: January 8, 2008

Supreme Court Justices make a difference. In 2000 they sure made a difference, didn't they? Now with the addition of the early 20th century minded Chief Justice Roberts and Strip-Search Sammy Alito, it looks like the Supreme Court, kind of like FOX "News", is only an extension of the Republican Party......

What "Change" Means

By The Reverend Published: January 7, 2008

As my friend King stated in one of his recent posts, the buzzword, specifically on the Democratic side of things has been distilled down to one syllable..."change".

I have a few thoughts about that.

Is That The Fat Lady I Hear Singing?

The Oligarchy

By The Reverend Published: January 5, 2008

America has become a nation of states ruled over by a tiny minority of powerful and wealthy people. Not news, I know, but with the most recent Ohio Supreme Court ruling against the constitutional right of Ohio's citizens to a trial by jury, a ruling the Beacon editorialized upon here, I'm reminded again of how much our once great country has lost.

What 2008's Economy Will Look Like

By The Reverend Published: January 4, 2008

I'm not sure who or what Junior and the Republicans can blame their own failed economic stewardship on......but I'm positive, he and the wizards of lassiez-faire, supply side superstition will not look at their own role in virtually destroying the perfectly good economy Junior inherited in 2001.

Chuck Todd......Again....Plus Iowa Talk

By The Reverend Published: January 3, 2008

Chuck Todd is NBC's political news director. Chuck Todd was on Hardball with Chris Matthews, Friday 12-28, handicapping the upcoming primaries. As Matthews asks about Mike Huckabee's 8% lead in Iowa over Romney......listen carefully for the two anecdotes Todd relates in his attempt to make a case that Huckabee won't win Iowa despite the polling. The anecdote that is important here is the second one about an Iowa farmer....

Not To Worry

By The Reverend Published: January 2, 2008

It goes without saying that no group of Americans would ever try to steal an election. America is good and just and besides, almost all Americans believe in God and most confess they are Christians.....so stealing an election would simply be out of the question.....in America. It could happen in, like, other countries.....but not here.
