The brief exposition of the constitution of the United States, will unfold to young persons the principles of republican government; and it is the sincere desire of the writer that our citizens should early understand that the genuine source of correct republican principles is the Bible, particularly the New Testament or the Christian religion. — Noah Webster, History of the United States, 1832

Bewitched by the ‘Mainstream’ Media’s Jedi Mind Trick

October 11, 2012   ·   By   ·   3 Comments

Obama GlamourTalk about blowing out the middle of the bull’s eye!

Bill Whittle’s latest Firewall nails both Barack Obama and the Obama Administration’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment (aka the “mainstream” media).

As a Star Wars fan since I was 10 (the year it came out), I love both the analogy to the Jedi mind trick…and the weak-minded upon whom it works its magic.

The only difference being, of course, that while Obi Wan Kenobi uses his Jedi mind trick to overcome evil, the Obama Administration’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment (aka the “mainstream” media) uses their liberal mind trick to aid evil.

And, as you’ll see in this video, they’ve been using this mind trick for decades-as long as the “mainstream” media has been beguiled by the Dark Side, aka Marxism.

I love the vampire pic, too!

    I’m trying to think if conservatives ever had a demigod that we worshiped so much that we were wiling to look past glaring defects and inadequacies. I suppose Ronald Reagan comes the closest, but it was not the man that we loved above all (though we did love him), it was his ideas. Reagan made some mistakes during his presidency, like taking Democrats at their word to cut spending, and we let him know about it.

    Now that I think about it that’s the difference between conservatives and liberals. We love ideas, especially liberty. Liberals deify their leaders, even when those leaders behave shoddily, e.g., Clinton. There have been six Democrat presidents during y life-time. I was too young to know anything about Truman, but all the rest were deeply flawed men, yet all have been deified in liberals’ minds. The only truly flawed Republican was Nixon and when the truth came out conservatives were quick to reject him. You’d never see Democrats do similarly. Just look at what Clinton and Obama have done-Democrats love them all the more it seems.

    Another difference is the fact that most conservatives already have a God and have no need for another. Most Democrats, on the other hand…

      You’re thinking about it wrong, Doc. The liberals look past the glaring defects and inadequacies of their liberal idols not because they are blind to them, but because these qualities are actually VIRTUES to the liberal elites. Van Jones, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayres, Frank Marshall Davis? These people are lionized by the Left. They only avoided the connections for political expedience.

      If I hear one more politician, Romney included, who says that Democrats and Conservatives, liberals and conservatives, both only want what’s best for this country and it’s people, I’m going to scream. This is one of the biggest lies being purveyed today, and the Republican establishment is swallowing it whole. Liberalism, and its party, the Democrats, want nothing less than to DESTROY this country and what has made it great.

        Point well-taken, spouse. The “virtues” of liberal icons would most certainly be called horrendous vices in a conservative. Funny how that works.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)

House Votes to Defund ObamaCare


Your hard work is paying off and for now it seems the House Leadership is listening to the will of the American people. The House just voted 230 to 189 to keep the government funded while stopping funding for Obamacare. Now the ball is in Harry Reid's court. What will he do? Will he continue to ignore the will of the American people or will he finally listen to the people he represents and stop Obamacare from further destroying our economy?


Deconstructing ObamaCare

Bob Ellis

If you weren't paying attention as ObamaCare was passed and upheld by a constitutionally-contemptuous Supreme Court, or if you were paying attention and would like a refresher on the facts, this video is for you. If you are even considering the need to add your voice to the chorus of Americans denouncing this trainwreck and calling for its defunding, watch this video to help properly motivate you as to what is at stake and why you should join your fellow Americans in doing everything within your power to stop this assault on religious freedom and freedom of all kinds.

Gun Control?…Really?

Paul E. Scates

The smoke had barely cleared in the D.C. Navy Yard shooting when the usual suspects resumed their clamoring for “gun control,” as if that, of all the truly massive problems this nation is facing, is the most critical. Help me get something straight here, just so I understand...

Bradlee Dean

Soros-Funded Website Attacks Ministry

Guest Author, which was started in 2007 as an advocacy group and has been funded by liberal activist George Soros, has 20 million subscribers and has long been know as pushing liberal causes. Although a year ago it changed its policy to allow conservative advertising, it is still largely filled with liberal-leaning causes. A left-wing petition on has taken aim at popular preacher and radio personality Bradlee Dean, claiming Dean's youth ministry is “divisive” and should not be invited to the state fair.


Your Voice Needed to Stop ObamaCare

Bob Ellis

Yesterday we learned that the House Leadership was going to adopt the strategy to pass a Continuing Resolution that funds the entire government and stops funding for Obamacare. While this is encouraging news, we must not think that this battle is over. Between now and the end of September, we need to do everything to put pressure on the House Republicans to stand strong. The only way we win this battle to stop Obamacare is if they don't blink.


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
