  • Have Alinsky Political Operatives Infiltrated Cleveland’s Faith Communities

    A new faith coalition out in Cleveland, Ohio, raises some interesting questions about the intermingling of organized religion and leftist politics. The founding of the Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC), a group that describes itself as “a non-partisan coalition of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice,” claims that its focus is uniting the masses to improve local neighborhoods. While many would see this as a worthy endeavor, others — mainly those with fears about the use of faith to progress the liberal agenda — are questioning the GCC’s motivations. The central...

    Opponents staged a last-minute protest against expanded gambling on Tuesday, saying casinos would damage the state's economy and create enormous social and political problems. The protest came as members of the state House of Representatives plan to vote on Wednesday on a bill to permit three casinos in three regions around the state including one for anywhere in the four counties of Western Massachusetts. The bill would also create a single slot house with up to 1,250 slot machines. "In the long term, the bill will only create more economic turbulence, more problems for families, and more new addiction than...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 7/9/11 | Elad Benari and Yoni Kempinski
    Daphni Leef, one of the leaders of the social protests in Israel, denied in a conversation with Arutz Sheva on Tuesday that the protest is a leftist protest aimed at overthrowing the government. “As an individual I can tell you that I’m not right or left,” Leef said. “I’ve lost my faith in the elected officials whoever they are. That’s why this protest is so important. “There’s no right and left here,” she added. “What we do have here is people. Each person will live by his own faith, as they say. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is that...

    Opposition leader Tzipi Livni knows the real reason that the hareidi-religious community avoided Saturday night's protests to lower the cost of living, MK Nissim Zev (Shas) said Sunday, speaking to Arutz Sheva. Unfortunately, he added, she preferred to hurl unfounded allegations. “This is not the first time that Livni slams the hareidi community, and the settler community, as if they are the state of Israel's problem,” he noted. “It is a shame that she doesn't look around to see that the entire world is against us,” he continued. “At a time like this we must unite; her approach is neither...
  • ‘Social Justice’ May Boomerang at the Polls

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/9/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
    A new poll shows that the reaction at the polls could be a slap in the face to center-left Kadima without hurting nationalist and religious parties and clearly illusrates that the protest movement has not made a political dent in the government coalition. The results of the Panorama poll, released on Voice of Israel government radio last week, are a blow to the ”social justice” protest movement that has tried to set up the Netanyahu government as the source of most of Israel’s social and economic problems. If elections. were held now, the Likud party would maintain its 27 seats,...
  • Report: 'Clinton Adviser Greenberg is Behind Israeli Protests'

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/9/11 | Gil Ronen
    The protesters demand "social justice" and a more equitable economy but their exact demands are not clear. According to an investigative report by Maariv's Kalman Libeskind, the protests were engineered by a group of media strategists who are directed by prominent Democratic strategist Stanley Greenberg, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others. Greenberg directed the strategists to create a protest that was not led by one specific group, in order to create social ferment. An unnamed left-wing leader would eventually step into this ferment and take the reins, Greenberg predicted. The Israeli strategists reportedly include Boaz Gaon,...

    The Department of Justice is executing a "Witch Hunt" against banks. Through the DOJ's Civil Rights Division, Attorney General Eric Holder is forcing banks to "relax their mortgage underwriting standards and approve loans for minorities with poor credit as part of a new crackdown on alleged discrimination," according to a published report by Investor's Business Daily after reviewing court documents. The DOJ has already extorted $20 million for weak and poor credit loans from banks that "settled out of court rather than battle the federal government and risk being branded racist." The DOJ admits another 60 banks are already under...

    ELGIN — It was nearly 50 years ago when Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, Mike Reiskin of Bartlett noted. In that speech, King said he dreamed his four little children one day would live in a nation where they would “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” But Reiskin told the U46 Board of Education Monday night, “The position you’re looking to fill very specifically addresses groups and judges people by the color of their skin, not the content of their character.” The position...

    The Washington Post’s Philip Rucker caught Mitt Romney explaining how to think about economic policy when the labor market is depressed, housing has tanked, households are broke and the Fed is limited by near-zero interest rates: Romney criticized Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package, saying it did not create long-lasting jobs. He said he would have lowered tax rates, instituted fair trade policies and boosted energy independence to help create sustainable private-sector jobs. "The challenge with so-called stimulus is it tends to be throwing a little gasoline on the fire," Romney said. "It causes some heat. . . . It just doesn’t cause...

    Broadband and Social Justice ^ | February 3rd | Marcella Gadson
    MMTC held its second annual Broadband and Social Justice Summit January 20-21, and was proud to welcome all five FCC Commissioners to speak on several topics. Four Commissioners spoke on day two, and Chairman Julius Genachowski paved the way for them on day one, delivering a generally forward-looking speech. Genachowski's speech focused on the state of the Digital Divide and avenues toward more broadband adoption, revamping spectrum, and the FCC's four part mobile broadband agenda. Using an illustration of his experience with the 2010 Consumer Electronic Show where every device required Internet access, the Chairman began by highlighting the necessity...

    Car alarm installer Charles Montes was almost done for the day. It was just after 7 p.m., his boss was locking up, and he was finishing up his last installation for the day. All of a sudden, Montes felt a gun in his back. The gunman announced he and his boss "were gonna get jacked and don't do nothing stupid," Montes testified Wednesday in Pima County Superior Court. Moments later, a man lay dead, felled by a bullet fired by Montes, and three accomplices were on their way to jail. Wednesday was the first day in the trial of Carlos...

    The media reform cabal is at it again. The same professional Soros-funded astroturfers who brought us Van Jones to demand “media justice” and SaveTheInternet and Net Neutrality have been focused on a new target. For months now, Free Press, Media Access Project, Public Knowledge, Consumers Union, and the New America Foundation have been thwarting the proposed merger of cell phone providers AT&T and T-Mobile, saying the move would raise prices for consumers and cost jobs. As the deal sits with the FCC, which just this week temporarily halted its review of the proposal, AT&T and T-Mobile have tried to reassure...

    If I told you that your tax dollars (130,000 of them) went to buying a "diversity" manual that asserts the government and other institutions create advantages that "channel wealth and power to white people" and calls on educators to "take action for social justice," what would you do? And if I told you that such a manual was required staff reading in Omaha, NE schools, what would you say? Don’t believe me? Read on to learn about "The Cultural Proficiency Journey: Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School Change." The book is a manifesto on cultural awareness. But what it...

    American Thinker ^ | June 21, 2011 | Frank Ryan
    Liberals Outsourcing Morality By Frank Ryan In the Book of Matthew in the New Testament, Pontius Pilate symbolically washes his hands of the responsibility for the crucifixion of Jesus. This symbolism has carried on through the centuries as the mark of someone who is complicit in something yet wishes to distance himself from the appearance of responsibility. The person effectively "washes" away the guilt. In much the same way, 21st-century liberalism uses the tax code to absolve itself of the moral responsibility to truly care for the very citizens they claim to be protecting. The tax code has become the...

    The headline of the full-page ad asks, "What Would Jesus Cut?—A budget is a moral document." The text continues, "Our faith tells us that the moral test of a society is how it treats the poor." .... How would you answer that question? My answer would be, "It's a nonsense question. Your premise is faulty. Your priorities are not His priorities." What would Jesus cut? When He stood before the Roman Empire, He didn't suggest cuts. He received cuts. His flesh was cut by Roman nails and a Roman spear. He was bruised for our transgressions, and with His cuts...
