    My wife advises me that a co-worker's child has been diagnosed with neuroblastoma and is enduring many tests to assess his situation. His name is Tanner and he is 13 months old. Thank you in advance for your prayers.

    A friend of the family had a routine but evasive surgery earlier this week and has just been sent back for emergency surgery. It looks bad. She is a caring mom with several children and we need all hands to pray for her. Please help.

    It all clicked into place when I read that Murkowski is now running an ad attacking the Tea Party Express as "the organization from California* that did a half million in attack ads" thereby stealing the primary from her, and I imagined Princess Lisa saying "You were too stupid to think for yourselves so just vote for mke, you imbeciles! Now, I understand what's been bothering me about her the past few weeks. Lisa Murkowski is Alaska's answer to Mom, the tycoon from the cartoon sitcom Futurama. For those unfamiliar with Matt Groening's real masterpiece, Futurama is the saga of...

    Very Disturbing Statement Made By Former Rockford Abortionist: Another statement by former Rockford abortionist Emily Godfrey in the New York Times may shine new light on the mind-set of Rockford's abortion establishment, it's supporters, and why abortionist Godfrey chose to work in Rockford. This is a quote from abortionist Godfrey in the New York Times: "After graduation, Godfrey started her family-medicine residency in a hospital on Chicago’s West Side. It bordered gang territory. On her obstetrics rotation, Godfrey delivered baby after baby to poor women who seemed overwhelmed. Some were drug addicts. “Bringing so many unwanted children into the...

    Former Rockford Abortionist Tells Bold-Faced Lie In The New York Times About Rockford Pro-Lifers. The abortionist fabrication says more about what may be going on in the conscience of a person who kills children in the womb than it does about the pro-lifers of Rockford. In this article abortionist Emily Godfrey who worked in Rockford killing children in the womb for a few years boldly tells the lie that "Protesters surrounded her when she walked into the clinic." She gives the impression in the article that she couldn't take working at the Rockford mill because of the dangers of those...

  • Yard Sale Day in the Democratic Party

    09/10/2008 9:48:35 PM PDT · by Mr. Silverback · 20 replies · 115+ views
    "We are not amused!" In the days after Senator McCain chose his running mate, I learned a new hockey term: "Yard sale." A yard sale is a particularly brutal body check that causes the victim's gear to fly all over the ice. Several times during Governor Palin's speech at the RNC, my son and I called out "Yard sale" after she stuck it to the community organizer with an especially satisfying line. The past 24 hours or so have been Yard Sale Day for the Democratic Party, and the beauty of it is that this time out, they've done...

    The latest media mantra is that conservatives (especially Christians) had a very different reaction to the pregnancy of Jamie Lynn Spears than we did to the pregnancy of Bristol Palin. On its face, that's true, but I think it's an apples and oranges comparison. Yes, I will totally back that up. 1. I think we can all agree that comparing Lynne Spears and Sarah Palin is a pretty dicey thing. Call me when Lynne joins an Assemblies of God church and starts hunting caribou. (Plus, see item #3, which Lynne was presumably in on.) 2. Last time I checked, Bristol...

    Stephenson County Right To Life (S.C.R.L.) Victim Of A Hate Crime ! Our beautiful pro-life billboard was recently destroyed by a hate crime. The billboard read: "Abortion, the ultimate child abuse." This graffiti was added "Why so serious?" to which we respond, "Because abortion is murder." The sign must be replaced. Please open your heart and your wallets and donate to replace the sign and to help right this wrong. We are very fortunate to have two daily newspapers in town, the Freeport Journal Standard and The Focus. Both of them have written great articles involving the recent vandalism of...

    I have joyous news tempered by some unfortunate diagnostic information. My wife, the luscious Rambette, is carrying our fourth child, due sometime around February 15th. The problem is she's now been to the emergency room twice for spotting. Both times turned out to be no danger of a miscarriage, but we were told there may be some separation of the placenta. That means that it can be expected to either resolve itself, or it could conceivably get worse and result in miscarriage. We are trusting God and we covet your prayers for full healing and a safe, healthy delivery.

    The Mediator (the quarterly newsletter of the awesome evangelical outreach to Hollywood, MasterMedia Internatonal) reports that Oprah Winfrey now airs a one-hour daily radio show on her XM satellite radio channel that takes listeners through the 365 lessons in the New Age tome "A Course in Miracles." The folks at MasterMedia got their information from If you're not familiar with the teachings of A Course In Miracles (which were supposedly channeled to the author by Jesus) you can check out the quotes on the truthorfiction page above (some of the quotes are from other New Age books, but...

    Once again, a videographer sitting vigil at the Northern Illinois Women's Center has shown us what abortion does to the people who participate. Video of the incident is at YouTube, and here are some excerpts (including a full transcript) from an Pro-Life Corner's report, "A Breeding Ground Of Hate In The Heart Of Rockford, IL." Another sad chapter played out at the Rockford IL, abortion clinic known for the racism of its most vocal supporter and the anti-Christian bigotry of the buildings owner.... On that day, a young woman and man arrived at the abortion mill and quietly entered the...

    When conservatives point out the sort of things I'm going to point out in this post, they are accused of "using fear" and other such crimes against warmness and fuzziness. There are two problems with that. First, these things are scary and there is almost no chance that mainstream media sources will ever ask any hard questions about them or even give them a passing mention. Second, the Presidential campaign is the most important job interview in the world. Imagine that a guy gets his English Lit degree and then expects to interview for Chief of Surgery at a...

    Carolyn Jessop, who escaped from an FLDS marriage that included 6 other wives and 54 children. Rulon Jeffs, 90, poses with two of his brides approximately two years before his death. Reported estimates of the number of his wives range from 19 to 75. His son, Warren, succeeded him as Prophet of the FLDS. I have to say, I'm more than a little disturbed how many conservatives I'm coming across who believe that the FLDS folks from the YFZ ranch in Texas have been on the receiving end of another Waco, or something resembling the Elian Gonzalez abduction. Though...

    Here's the first segment of video from the Baby Napalm incident. I'm reposting the description from this thread where I posted links to the transcript. In Rockford, Illinois, an abortion clinic known as the Northern Illinois Women's Center performs abortions twice a week. On March 29, the clinic was open for business. Two dedicated pro-life activists were there for sidewalk counseling and prayer. A neighborhood resident, Keith, arrived to accost them, making illegal physical contact with one of the men in the first moments of his criminal freakout, issuing forth a stream of vile racial and sexual epithets, threatening the...

A neighborhood resident, Keith, arrived to accost them, making illegal physical contact with one of the men in the first moments of his criminal freakout, issuing forth a stream of vile racial and sexual epithets, threatening the men with his dog, and even voicing his approval for what he himself calls child killing.

    Here are a few chuckles I found on the web recently. Hat tip for the first three goes to Michelle Malkin: First, what's wrong with this picture? BTW, the photo originally came from Zombietime and the "TOMANY" phenomenon appeared on Little Green Footballs. And yes, that is Mother Sheehan herself, second from the left. You probably have Peeps left over from Easter. Here's what some other folks have been doing with them. (And here are last year's entries.) Hat tip for this one goes to the folks at Aircraft Resource Center, specifically my fellow crew chief Boom175: Top Gun--North Korean...

    One of the most despicable of Rev. Wright's comments is his assertion that the 9/11 attacks were America's "chickens coming home to roost," delivered on the Sunday after they occurred. Wright says that we deserved it because we were involved in the Middle East and because we had engaged in terrorism when we nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This assessment of history reveals a couple of things about Wright. Let's take a look: 1. Like an all-white segregation-era jury, Wright doesn't need facts to deliver a verdict. For a rundown of some reasons you may not have heard that the bombings...

    Get your barf bags ready, boys and girls. Barack Obama could have stayed home and forgotten about his speech yesterday, because America's liberals had all weekend to come up with excuses for hate speech, and they came up with some doozies. A few random thoughts, and then I'll get to the freakiest excuse of them all. Expect to hear Pat Robertson's name kicked around a lot over the next few days as Obama's defenders try to draw equivalency between his comments about 9/11 and Wright's decades of hate speech. On Glenn Beck's show last night we were treated to NPR/Esquire...
