[*]The International Baccalaureate Organization & Secular Humanism
August 20, 2011
Secular Humanism (the root of Communism) vies for total control of education. Secular Humanism is the dominant worldview in our secular colleges and universities. Secular Humanism promotes; the Theology of Atheism; the Philosophy of Naturalism; the Ethics of Ethical Relativism; the Biology of Darwinian Evolution; the Psychology of Monistic Self-Actualization; the Sociology of World State Society; the Law of Positive Law (man-made laws which bestow or remove specific privileges upon an individual or group); the Politics of Globalism; the Economics of Socialism; and the History of Historical Evolution.  The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) promotes these Secular Humanist perspectives as International Education that is marketed for use in primary and secondary schools worldwide.
    “Helping young people to become fully human is something that the IBO can foster if, of course, the leadership is there to confront the challenges that will come from the relativists and the fundamentalists. We need to be helping our young people to be compassionate, caring, ethical individuals. This will mean [....]
[**]Do You Really Care about the International Baccalaureate and Agenda 21?
August 20, 2011
I continue my effort to keep you informed about International Baccalaureate (IB) locally and nationally through email and face book but it seems that any interest is falling off. Some may feel that IB is to big an issue and that they can make no impact or that maybe IB is really no issue.  Others have told me they will take a wait and see approach. I will tell you this, "silence equals compliance." I will not be compliant in this UN takeover of our public school system. I will continue to oppose this program, even if I am the lone person crying in the wilderness!  If you no longer desire to be apart of this challenge and are tired of receiving emails and face book posts or feel that no impact can be made, please let me know and I will remove you from my email and face book friend list. There will be no hard feelings on my part, just disappointment.  BBCW and TAIB continue to be outlets for commentary on this issue as well as the superdave blogtalk radio show, which I hope all of you visit regularly. I am also a director [....]

[***]IB's Radioactive Redhead
by Lisa E. McLoughlin
August 20, 2011
    As I enter my eighth year battling the International Baccalaureate organization's infiltration of American public schools, it occurred to me that I have ruffled quite a few Progressive feathers along the way. The Alinskyites among them have credited me with having amazing and unusual destructive powers. For example, in October of 2007, Jay Mathews alleged, "the people said I didn't have to strain myself and risk a stroke, which McLoughlin is capable of triggering all by herself." This was written around the same time that a WAPO forum participant, Victoria Pye, (Upper St. Clair, PA ACLU plaintiff and IB Inspiration Award recipient) accused me of upsetting her so badly that she drove her car into the side of her house!  I think both Mr. Mathews and Ms. Pye would be hard pressed to prove in a court of law that I could trigger a stroke or be held responsible for someone else's poor driving skills because of words I had written on the Internet. It wasn't until one of my favorite patriots privately referred to me as an "atom bomb" dropped [....]

Memos Show Top ATF Official Was Briefed on Gunwalker Pitfalls

by Lachlan Markay
August 11, 2011
    The former number two official in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tried to put a stop to the Fast and Furious gunwalking operation months before the fatal shooting of an American border patrol agent, a batch of newly released DOJ memos show.  According to the memos and other internal communications obtained by the Los Angeles Times, ATF Acting Deputy Director William Hoover attended a March 2010 briefing with officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, who said they were concerned that Fast and Furious guns would start showing up at crime scenes in Mexico and the United States.
    Hoover began pushing for an “exit strategy” from the Fast and Furious operation. Eventually all parties agreed to wait for indictments to be handed down before ending the program.  Ten months later, in January 2011, those indictments finally came. By that time, US Border Patrol agent Brian Terry had been killed and Fast and Furious guns found at the crime scene.  Terry’s killing set off a political firestorm. Congressional investigators have been trying to unearth who exactly knew about the operation, and when. This new information provides more insight into those questions.  “I probably should have been a lot more strident with that, there’s no question,” Hoover told the Times. “I probably should have jumped on a plane and flown to Phoenix and gotten the field division team and the U.S. attorney’s team together and had a discussion.”  [~~]

New High: 93% Say They're Paying More for Groceries Than A Year Ago

by Rasmussen Reports
August 14, 2011
Americans nationwide continue to lose faith in the Federal Reserve Board to keep inflation under control, with the number who say they are paying more for groceries now at an all-time high. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that just 31% are at least somewhat confident that the Fed will be able to keep inflation under control and interest rates down, and that includes only eight percent (8%) who are Very Confident. Sixty-five percent (65%) are not confident the Fed can keep inflation and interest rates under control, with 25% who [....]

NASCAR Drivers' College Degrees Revealed

See which NASCAR drivers earned a college degree.
By Chris Kyle
Chase Mattioli is no ordinary college kid. A junior at New York's Fordham University, he also spends a lot of time driving race cars.  Mattioli, who competes on the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing's (NASCAR's) Nationwide Series, is no ordinary driver either.  Until recently, not many NASCAR drivers had a college education. In fact, the late Alan Kulwicki, who won the Winston Cup Championship in 1992, was the first [....]

Food stamps offer best stimulus - study

Moody's study suggests extending unemployment benefits, increasing food stamps fastest ways to stimulate economy.
January 29 2008
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- As Congress and the White House consider a $150 billion stimulus package that includes tax rebates and tax incentives for business, a report released Tuesday suggests that other methods would do a better job of infusing money into the flagging economy and doing it fast.  The industry research firm Moody's tracked the potential impact of each stimulus dollar, looking at tax rebates, tax incentives for business, food stamps and expanding unemployment benefits. 
The report found that "some provide a lot of bang for the buck to the economy. Others ... don't," said economist Mark Zandi.  In findings echoed by other economists and studies, he said the study shows the fastest way to infuse money into the economy is through expanding the food-stamp program. For every dollar spent on that program $1.73 is generated throughout the economy, he said.  "If someone who is literally living paycheck to paycheck gets an extra dollar, it's very likely that they will spend that dollar immediately on whatever they need - groceries, to pay the telephone bill, to pay [....] 

Obama's Ramadan Dinner Guest List Hides Attendance of Stealth Jihadists Tied to Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood
Obama's seditious Ramadan dinner is the consummate achievement of the stealth jihad. Allahu FUBAR!
August 14, 2011
by atlasshrugs2000First, I blogged that Obama honored the sacrifices that Muslim Americans made on 911 and "the sacrifices that Muslim Americans have made for the country," while not pointing out their true contribution to America.  If that wasn't subversive enough, we discover that the Obama White House is covering up the Muslim Brotherhood proxies and stealth jihadists at the Ramadan celebration bombathon. 
Why are they hiding? Because they know. And they know that we know.
Obama's Iftar guest list omitted attendees with links to Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood Jihad Watch
But they were there. ISNA has admitted ties to both Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
"Obama’s Iftar guest list omits controversial attendees,"
by Neil Munro in the Daily Caller,
August 11:
The White House’s published guest list for this year’s Ramadan Iftar dinner was much shorter than previous years’ roster. It excluded the names of several controversial advocates who have attended the event in the past, including some who The Daily Caller can confirm did attend on Wednesday night. “It was a squeaky clean list,” said Durriya Badani, director of the U.S.-Islamic World Forum, an annual event organized by the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center and the Qatari government. The guests on the published list are “not controversial at all,” said Badani, whose name is on the list the White House provided to reporters.  “It was a lot more low-key … It was a [....]

Support Your Local 'Plant-a-Pig'!

August 19, 2011
Think globally- act locally
    According to legend, resourceful citizens in Seville, Spain found a neat way to terminate the construction of yet another unwanted mosque in their town: they simply buried a pig on the site while ensuring that this fact was known to the local press...
    Chisled-in-stone Islamic rules forbade the erecting of a Mosque on "pig soiled ground"- therefore the Muslim backers were obligated to cancel construction. The land was originally sold to them (against the will of locals) by government officials... sounds like something you'd get from Grand Dhimmi Bloomberg, eh. 
But in halting the project, no protests were needed...
No government/bureaucratic intervention... no violence...
No ill-advised buy-outs or land-swaps at taxpayer expense...
and it worked.
Thus was born the "Plant-a-Pig" program:
    As many of you know, in Texas and throughout the American SE there exists an overabundance of crop-eating feral hogs. What we're talking about here is relocating them all across the country... then just deep-six one everywhere a mosque is being planned (naturally reserving a couple extra truckloads for Detroit).  Concerned patriots have also noted that a few piles of strategically-placed pork might help to stem the tide of Jihadis crossing [....]

The Fruits of Coburn’s Crusade

June 30, 2011
By Loren Adler and Shai Akabas
Chris Hildebrand contributed to this post.
    Republican Senator Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) recent crusade to define the elimination of tax expenditures as spending cuts, rather than tax increases, achieved its first major victory the other week with the 73 to 27 Senate vote to eliminate ethanol subsidies. Importantly, 33 Senate Republicans (including staunch conservatives, such as Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA)) courageously joined Coburn to break – or at least weaken – Grover Norquist’s influence on many Republican members of Congress.
    Norquist, leader of the conservative group Americans for Tax Reform, has long attempted to fortify traditional Republican anti-tax sentiments by asking all Republican congressmen to sign the “Taxpayer Protection Pledge.” The text of the pledge strictly rejects revenue increases, whether from an increase in marginal rates or a reduction in tax expenditures. The pledge, at its core, is a carefully crafted tool designed to disallow revenue increases in an attempt to limit the size of government, or “starve the beast.”  Going against this pledge is [....]

.........The Fast Fix: Five fast facts about Rick Perry

By Chris Cillizza
The Fast Fix–Aug 17, 2011
Rick Perry is a serious contender for the Republican presidential nod.
Here are five things you need to know about him.  Texas Governor Rick Perry enters the 2012 presidential race greeted by polls suggesting he is a serious contender for the Republican nomination.
Here are five fast facts on Rick Perry:
1. Perry was a yell leader at Texas A&M University. It's a much sought-after position and an early indication of Perry's political aspirations.
2. He used to be a Democrat. Perry was elected to a West Texas state House seat in 1984 as a Democrat and even served as Al Gore's Texas chairman during the 1988 presidential race. He switched to the GOP in 1989.
3. Perry's first statewide office in Texas was [....]

Even Financial Gurus Make Money Mistakes

by Chris Taylor
August 17, 2011
I bought Lehman Brothers.
There, I said it. My dark secret, finally out in the open. Watching financial stocks drop like stones in the fall of 2008, I figured it was a classic case of investor panic. After Lehman went from over $90 to under $10, I almost felt bad at getting such a bargain. After all, it couldn't go to zero, right?
And then it did. My modest investment was wiped out, and I couldn't even stand to look at the Wall Street Journal for a long time afterwards. My point is that even personal-finance journalists, doling out our sage advice, can make bone-headed financial decisions. Really big ones.  That in mind, I asked a few of the nation's top personal-finance commentators [....]
Until Next Sunday....
