Wanted: any Republican presidential candidate | Stewart J Lawrence

Wanted: any Republican presidential candidate | Stewart J Lawrence 0 comments Posted on 26th May 2011 by staffwriter in Feeds Guardian, Mitt Romney, Mitt Romney News Does anyone in the Republican party want to run against President Obama in 2012? Anyone with a real shot at winning, that is? Consider all the promising candidates who’ve exited so far: Senator John Thune of South Dakota, a favourite of GOP political architect Karl Rove, bowed out three months ago, as did Representative Mike Pence of Indiana, who received extraordinary public plaudits – members of the House of Representatives are rarely considered qualified to run for president – and an early endorsement from the dean of conservative columnists, George Will. Next, of course, was ex-Florida Governor...

National Repentance Day November 6, 2012

The following is a commentary designed to provoke Christian thought and debate around one question- if we give our vote to a godless, abomidable Party that denies the need for God’s truth in our laws and public policy, are we ourselves participating in their godless rejection of Jesus Christ? I say, yes, if Christians give their votes to ANY member of such a godless Party that officially rejects God and His righteousness, then they are personally guilty of that Party’s sin and have fallen from Grace. You cannot serve both God and mammon, you cannot be both a Christ-follower...

God Reigns Over The Nations

Christian theology, Christian politics, Freedom Theology Summary- Is God actively engaged in His Creation or does He only act as a passive observer? Does God actually rule over the nations? God Rules Over The Nations The idea that nations can do whatever they like even in disobedience to God without Him responding in some way defies the very nature of an intelligent Creator. Disngagement in Creaton by an inteligent Creator would seem to be most un-intelligent! If our Creator is intelligent, and we say that He is, it is self-evident that He will never play a passive or disinterested...

Mel Gibson seeks new voice in glove-puppet movie (AFP)

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – It’s sounds an unlikely basis for a Hollywood movie: a depressed husband takes to communicating through a beaver glove puppet, as he struggles to rebuild his life. Add that he is played by Mel Gibson — the actor ostracized by Tinsel Town since an 2006 anti-Semitic drunk-driving tirade — and that the brown furry beaver has a thick cockney accent, and, well, questions multiply. But Jodie Foster, who both stars in and directs “The Beaver,” out in North America on Friday, insists Gibson gives the performance of a lifetime, and reception of the film was positive at a press screening. “Mel was brilliant. Mel Gibson’s performance is extraordinary, and he was really the best actor for this and I’m grateful of the performance he gave, he’s my friend,” she told a small group of reporters. Gibson’s career has struggled since his 2006 arrest for drunk driving, which exploded into a major scandal because of anti-Semitic remarks he made to a highway patrol officer. The star of “Braveheart” — for which Gibson won two Oscars in 1996 — had no starring role on the big screen from 2005 until last year’s thriller “Edge of Darkness.” In March this year he was ordered to follow a one-year domestic violence counseling program, and serve three years of probation, in a plea bargain to avoid jail over the alleged...

The Gold Standard is About Creating Jobs

The Roosevelt Institute, a leading Progressive policy institute, is preparing a reprise of William Jennings Bryan’s famous 1896 critique of gold: “you shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns.” Mike Konczal, a Roosevelt Institute Fellow and influential liberal blogger, in announcing “The Future of the Federal Reserve Event,” writes: Conservatives are organizing against a full employment mandate and rallying around the gold standard wing of their party, and I believe it is time progressives and liberals start to play offense. Mr. Konczal is correct about conservatives organizing around the gold standard.  Yet he is deeply misinformed, or being mischievous, in claiming that conservatives are “organizing against a full employment mandate.”  The gold standard is the full employment mandate.  Perhaps the primary reason that conservatives are rallying for the gold standard is because of its extensively documented success, in the laboratory of history, as job creator.  Proposed legislation by Rep. Mike Pence to end the Fed’s “dual mandate” was by no means an attack on full employment.  it was a well-grounded criticism of the Fed’s record at creating full employment.  As Mr. Pence stated upon introducing his legislation, “The Fed’s full employment mandate has, too often, led to short-term fixes with long-term inflationary consequences that will not lead to job creation.” Charles W. Kadlec, in Gold vs. the Fed: The Record Is Clear, published in...
