Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, insisting that the conservative audience “stay informed” in order to push back against liberalism’s broad dominance in government and media.
“The mainstream media is complicit in the cover-up and in the denial and in the overlooking of information for the American people,” the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO explained. “Most people don’t even know we are in as bad a condition as we are in.”
“Because you’re not gonna hear it on the 6 o’clock news or the 7 o’clock news that only 58 percent of registered voters voted in the last presidential election,” Cain said. “The mainstream media said, ‘A record!’ What about the 42 percent that stayed home?”
“I’ve even heard people say, ‘Well, I don’t vote because I don’t know what’s going on,” he continued. “And I say ‘Good!’ Stupid people are ruining America, and I’m glad some of them stay home!”
The audience laughed and applauded while Cain continued. “The solution is real simple folks,” he asserted. “Those of us that are informed have got to out-vote the stupid people!”

From Gary DeMar – Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama told “attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America.”
I thought this was a story from The Onion. Michelle Obama actually said this. This goes to show you how dumb smart people can be.
These are the same dumb smart people who get us into unwinnable wars, wrecked the economy, and don’t know the differences between the sexes.
Not only didn’t her Harvard and Princeton educations teach her how to feed her children, they apparently didn’t teach her much about American history:
“It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history,” she said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence. “And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.”
Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America? Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia. John Adams was born in Massachusetts. Surely she knows this. But maybe not.
In a statement to Bay Area News Group, Attorney Christopher Dolan, who represents the McMath family said that “Jahi’s physical condition is much better than when she was at Children’s Hospital,” adding that predictions that her organs would shut down and her heart would cease pumping had not come to pass. “I have seen Jahi and none of what Children’s (Hospital) said would happen to her as inevitable physical death has occurred. I have seen much more movement in Jahi, response to her mother’s touch and voice and what appears to be movement in response to voice command.”
Treating Jahi as a living being had led to her physical condition stabilizing and then improving. The family continues to pray for improvement and expects that additional tests will be preformed to determine if she no longer meets the controversial definition of brain death.
Wesley J. Smith, J.D., is a special consultant to the Center for Bioethics and Culture and a bioethics attorney notes that this, “would challenge the concept of brain death in the minds of many, forcing the medical community on the defensive. At the very least, I think it would lead to universal and rigorous mandatory criteria for its determination, something now sorely lacking. It might also require application of the more sophisticated brain scanning techniques now coming on line, which have shown that many people thought to be in a persistent unconscious condition, are actually aware.”

The White House is set to announce the extension of more benefits to same-sex married couples Friday, including plans to give workers across America leave from work to care for same-sex spouses.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Obama administration will urge Congress to pass legislation to make certain provisions like Social Security benefits to apply to same-sex married couples.
Friday’s announcement will arrive at the end of a nearly yearlong review of federal regulations after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, which denied benefits to legally married gay couples.
In addition to the White House announcement, the Labor Department is expected to announce a notice of proposed rule making on employment leave, clarifying that the Family and Medical Leave Act will allow gay employees to take leave to care for a spouse of the same-sex.
While such a move may seem compassionate, in reality it burdens the tax payers to fund programs for an already affluent segment of the population as well as legalizes discrimination against any government contractor who has moral objections to funding lifestyles they view as immoral.

A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.
Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said.
He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.
“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”
