Fomenting Violence on Critics, Changing History, Obama "Agnostic" on Raising Taxes, and the EPA

Free "Two of the most popular liberal news sites are calling for violence against Republicans for obstructing the radical agenda of President Barack Obama. CNN and Huffington Post have each published op-eds this past week by regular contributors with headlines that explicitly call for Obama to use violent gangland tactics against his political opponents.

CNN published a column by Roland Martin on February 11 with the headline, Time for Obama to go ‘gangsta’ on GOP. Martin concluded the article with a plea for Obama to emulate the violent tactics of the Prohibition-era Chicago mob boss Al Capone.

"Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ‘em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price."

The Huffington Post followed-up with their own call for gangland violence against Republicans with the publication on February 14 of a column by David Bourgeois with the title, Obama Better Start Breaking Kneecaps. (

Bourgeois concludes his article with this call for gangland violence. "You’ve given it your best shot, you’ve tried numerous times to talk with the Republicans, to negotiate, to meet them halfway on every single matter before the American people. But they hate you for many reasons. It’s time you break kneecaps (bold in original). It’s time to destroy the Republican Party. They don’t deserve a seat at the table when all they want to do is score political points by being the Party of No."

In case the message wasn’t clear, Huffington Post illustrated the call to violence with a wooden baseball bat with Obama’s first name on it in large letters."  [Where is Nancy Pelosi when we need her?  She should be getting teary-eyed once again when witnessing this divisive language.]
The Conservative Outpost reports the following: "As hard (or easy) as it may be to believe, the education establishment in North Carolina is proposing new standards that would eliminate the teaching of any American history prior to 1877 to high school seniors. Yes, really. Of course, the people pushing these changes have a perfectly logical explanation...

"We are certainly not trying to go away from American history," Rebecca Garland, the chief academic officer for North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, told Fox News. "What we are trying to do is figure out a way to teach it where students are connected to it, where they see the big idea, where they are able to make connections and draw relationships between parts of our history and the present day."
Under the proposed change, the ninth-graders would take a course called global studies, focusing in part on issues such as the environment. The 10th grade still would study civics and economics, but 11th-graders would take U.S. history only from 1877 onward.”
President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit. Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg Business Week, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”
Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 presidential election campaign that he would not raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 and households earning less than $250,000 a year. When senior White House economic adviser Lawrence H. Summers and Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner suggested in August that the administration might be open to going back on that pledge, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs quickly reiterated the president’s promise.
President Barack Obama said in Turkey :
"We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation
Or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation.
We consider ourselves a nation of citizens
Who are bound by ideals and a set of values."  
Do you know the preamble for your state?
[Most of the 50 states do acknowledge God - not Allah - in their Constitutions.   
Some states do use the terms Supreme Ruler (Colorado, Missouri and Washington), Author of Existence (Vermont), Great Legislator (Massachusetts), Supreme Being (Iowa), Sovereign Ruler of the Universe (Maine), and Divine Providence (Virginia).  
If our President respected the formation and history of our country, he would have said that we are a Christian nation which protects the rights of its citizens to worship whomever they please, and that our government cannot force us to choose any certain religion.  That's what religious freedom is meant to mean!]
-A new poll conducted by CNN shows that 52 percent of Americans said President Barack Obama doesn't deserve reelection in 2012
Fox News reports what others have chosen not to cover:  "President Obama’s new envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference, Rashad Hussain, is at the center of a controversy over remarks attributed to him defending a man who later pleaded guilty to conspiring to aid a terrorist group.
The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs quoted Hussain in 2004 as calling Sami al-Arian the victim of “politically motivated persecutions” after al-Arian, a university professor, was charged in 2003 with heading U.S. operations of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
The United States has designated the Palestinian Islamic Jihad as a foreign terrorist group as far back as 1997. At the time of al-Arian’s arrest, then Attorney General John Ashcroft called it “one of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world.”
Al-Arian pleaded guilty in 2006 to conspiracy to aid Palestinian Islamic Jihad and was sentenced to more than four years in prison."
From the El Paso Times:  "Texas Republican leaders Tuesday ramped up their fight against federal environmental efforts by filing suit to avoid facing limits on carbon dioxide emissions. Gov. Rick Perry, Attorney General Greg Abbott and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples started a legal battle against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. They said an "endangerment" finding that was released in December by the agency was based on faulty science and would hurt Texas' economy. "
