Obama Backs Planned Parenthood Abortion Mills

Obama lied while running for office stating NO public tax dollars would fund abortion.Safely re-elected, Obama now says he supports Planned Parenthood and giving them over $400 million in taxpayer dollars. Not only does Obama not have a problem with the death of 50 million babies since Roe v. Wade, but he also supports partial-birth abortion, the killing of a living, crying newborn outside the mothers womb. What a sad thing for this great country we call America.

Dr. Benjamin Carson to speak in Pottstown on Oct. 13

Dr. Benjamin Carson, the acclaimed neurosurgeon who skyrocketed to national prominence after a rousing speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, will be the keynote speaker  at the 2013 Founders Dinner sponsored by the Coventry Christian School.

The speech, "Faith of Our Fathers: The Role of Faith in American Schools," will take place on Oct. 13 at Sunnybrook Ballroom in Pottstown, Pa.

Dr. Carson is a world-renowned neurosurgeon and the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore as well as a motivational speaker, philanthropist and best-selling author.

He catapulted to national prominence in February after delivering the keynote speech at the 61st Annual National Prayer Breakfast, which was attended by President Obama and Vice President Biden.

Dr. Carson used his time at the podium to talk about the great challenges facing America today  - specifically moral decay and fiscal irresponsibility - comparing the U.S. to the decline of ancient Rome.

"I think particularly about ancient Rome. Very powerful. Nobody could even challenge them militarily, but what happened to them? They destroyed themselves from within. Moral decay, fiscal irresponsibility. They destroyed themselves. If you don’t think that can happen to America, you get out your books and you start reading."

Dr. Carson criticized Obamacare as well as the growing dependency on government programs during the Obama administration.

The National Prayer Breakfast speech has been viewed more than 2.7 million times on YouTube.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m. for the Oct. 13 fundraiser. Dinner will begin at 5:15 p.m., followed by Dr. Carson's speech.

Reservations are being accepted for what is anticipated to be a sold-out event. Tickets are $150 per person, but can be reserved at the early-bird price of $100 per person until May 15.

From The Associated Press: 
The upper 7 percent of households owned 63 percent of the nation’s total household wealth in 2011, up from 56 percent in 2009, said the report from the Pew Research Center, which analyzed new Census Bureau data released last month.

Sen. Toomey: Obama White House Wants Flight Delays

In remarks on the Senate floor Tuesday, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) countered assertions from the White House and Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that current flight delays and furloughs are the unavoidable result of the sequester's spending cuts.

Sen. Toomey reminded the chamber that he and Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) had previously introduced a bill to give the administration broad flexibility to reconfigure the spending cuts to avoid this kind of economic disruption, but President Obama threatened to veto it.

"The flight delays, the furloughs among air traffic controllers, the shutting down of air traffic towers is entirely, utterly unnecessary," Sen. Toomey said. "This is a willful choice being made by this administration in order to inflict as disruptive a process as possible on the American public and on our economy all to further a political agenda. And the political agenda is to try to convince the American people that there are no circumstances under which we can ever cut spending at all."

A full transcript of Sen. Toomey's remarks:
    "I would like to respond to the comments from the Leader about the sequester that has gone into effect.  I want to be very clear about this: the flight delays that are occurring, the furloughs among air-traffic controllers, the shutting down of air-traffic towers is entirely, utterly unnecessary.

    "This is a willful choice being made by this Administration in order to inflict as disruptive a process as possible on the American public and on our economy  – all to further a political agenda and to try to convince the American people that there are no circumstances under which we can ever cut spending at all. 

    "Now, if you question why I say that this is a willful decision on the part of this Administration, I would refer you to legislation that Sen. Inhofe and I offered prior to the beginning of this sequestration. That legislation would have granted to the Administration complete flexibility in how they achieve the savings of the sequester. 

    "What did we hear from the Administration, Administration officials and White House spokespeople?  What we heard was 'that this is terribly unfortunate but they have no choice, they have no alternative, the law requires that they make these cuts.'  But when Sen. Inhofe and I introduce legislation to explicitly grant them all the flexibility they could ask for – complete flexibility – to find the most wasteful, the most redundant, the most unnecessary programs and to cut there instead of cutting essential services, what did the Administration say?  They said 'if you send us that legislation we’ll veto it.'

    "The White House put out a statement of administrative policy insisting that this was a terrible idea – a terrible idea to give them the flexibility to avoid exactly what they are doing.

    "I don’t know how one can come to any conclusion other than this Administration wishes to impose this inconvenience, this disruption, and this cost on the American people and our economy, because they had it within their ability to accept the device we offered to avoid this entirely. I am extremely disappointed that the Administration would choose to inflict this kind of harm to our economy, this kind of inconvenience to our travelers, all for the purpose of furthering a political agenda. This is no way to run this government.

    "I would suggest that what we do is revisit the legislation that Sen. Inhofe and I offered.  Our bill would have allowed us to cut some of this waste, excess and duplication and would have avoided all of this inconvenience.

    "This is entirely unnecessary and it is unacceptable. The proper function of any executive, including the President of the United States, is to look throughout the spending over which he or she has control to find the lowest priority, the least necessary, the least disruptive way to achieve the savings that we need.

    "We are running unacceptable deficits. The very modest savings of the sequester could be achieved in a way that wouldn’t be disruptive at all. We have a federal budget that has more than doubled in size in the last 12 years. To suggest that it’s not possible to find two and a half percent savings is simply ridiculous. And it’s not true.

    "So I would urge my colleagues: Let’s fix this. We know how to do it, we have the tools available. Sen. Inhofe and I offered an approach. But we need to achieve the savings of the sequester and we need to do it in a way that is not disruptive, and that can be done."

Former Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell says Gosnell abortion case not the result of politics

When it comes to accountability during the 8 years he was governor, Ed Rendell has adopted the Sgt. Schultz defense: I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing.

Rendell was governor from 2003 to 2011, a time period in which many of the horrific events at the Gosnell abortion clinic took place. (Also, let's not forget Rendell was mayor of Philadelphia before he became governor).

But Rendell claims he knew nothing of the conditions at the clinic, where 1,000 babies were butchered ever year in late-term abortions performed by Gosnell.

And even though Rendell ordered the state health department to stop inspecting abortion clinics to appease Rendell's liberal base, the guv claims it wasn't political.

Berks County GOP Chairman Steps Down

The revolving door continues to spin at the Berks County Republican Committee as Chairman Royal Furer abruptly announced this week he was stepping down after just 10 months in the leadership post.

Keeping a chairman has been a problem for Berks County Republicans in recent years. 

The tumult in party leadership has coincided with loses in countywide elections. Republicans lost the district attorney's office they held for decades and also lost a county row office.

Give Furer credit for reaching out to the growing Latino community in Berks County during his brief tenure as party chairman, but his reason for stepping down (work responsibilities) is pretty weak considering he's in the same job he had when he ran for the party chairman post.

Berks County Republican Committee Vice Chairwoman Christine Gordon told a local newspaper she has no interest in taking over the top post, so it will be interesting to see who emerges as the county leader in the coming month.

Furer defeated two other candidates in July 2012 to win the county leadership post: Reading entrepreneur Jim McHale, who ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2011, and John A. Fielding, an attorney in private practice and longtime member of the Antietam School Board.

Good news: Obama fiscal hole won't be as deep this year

At last something to cheer about: Through the first six months of the year, the Obama deficit has reached $600 billion. That's smaller than the $779 billion Obama racked up in the first six months of the 2012 budget year.

If this trend keeps up, Obama will finish the current fiscal year without the usual $1 Trillion-plus deficit. He's still spending more than we're taking in, but the hole won't be as deep. Yea!

Margaret Thatcher on Socialism

Thatcher: A Leader Vindicated by History

Max Boot, writing at Commentary Magazine about Margaret Thatcher's legacy:
What Reagan and Thatcher showed – and it is a lesson that may seem at odds with the conservative impulse that the private sector is the most significant – is what a difference political leadership can make. (Later Rudolph Giuliani showed the same thing – he was for urban policy what Reagan and Thatcher were for national policy.) They both inherited a mess: In Thatcher’s case she took over in 1979 following the “Winter of Discontent” when Britain was paralyzed by multiple strikes and high unemployment. As the Conservative advertising slogan had it, "Labour isn’t working." Reagan, of course, took over from Jimmy Carter in the wake of the failed hostage-rescue mission and in the midst of a severe recession characterized by "stagflation." Worst of all was a widespread loss of confidence in the future – both in Britain and America it was fashionable back then to imagine that the "the West" was finished and that the Soviet Union was ascendant.

The Independent Women's Forum Managing Director Carrie Lukas released the following statement in memory of Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:
The world has lost a tireless advocate for liberty.  Lady Thatcher was a true heroine, fighting for the liberation of oppressed people under communism's rule and to ease government's burden on her own people.  Revitalizing the economy, the Iron Lady introduced the idea of competition and personal responsibility back into British life.  She will be missed, but her legacy will long endure.
