>Honesty Can Save America


By Don White
The word “honesty” means telling the truth at all times. To be honest, we can’t be honest one day and dishonest another. The standard of honesty is found in the Bible and other holy scripture. Why aren’t we reading scriptures to our children? We are supposed to be teaching the Ten Commandments, which includes honesty, to our children in our homes, schools and churches, but where have we fallen short the past 40 years?

The libs have tried to overturn God, have taken prayer and The Ten Commandments out of public places–and look what a mess they’ve made.

Honesty in high places is missing.
Today the Wall Street Journal reported on an email written by Enrico Dallavecchia, then chief risk officer of Fannie Mae. He had done an audit and wrote in a July 2007 email to Michael Williams, chief operating officer, that Fannie “has one of the weakest control processes I ever witness (sic) in my career,”
Did CEO Franklin Raines act on that information? No! He ignored it and, consequently, he not only lost his job but his entire business had to be rescued by Washington.

But that’s not the worst of it—think of the millions of people who got house loans based on Fanny backing they could not afford. These are the very things that brought our country to its knees in the financial meltdown that is still going on.

These business leaders were too intent on making big short-term profits—and obscene multi-million-dollar bonuses and salaries– at the expense of danger signals they were receiving. They had to have had some inkling of thought that the housing bubble would not last forever and that things would degenerate into collapse of their companies and perhaps, ultimately, of the entire American financial system. To put it bluntly, they were outright dishonest.
God gave each of us a little brain button called a conscience. When we act on impulses from our consciences, we do the right thing, thus strengthening our ability to hear our conscience in the future. When we don’t, disaster always follows. Proverbs.19:5,9 states “a false witness will not go unpunished.” Constant ignoring of our conscience leads to what people say about most of Washington: “Oh, them? They don’t have a conscience.”

And yesterday Raines was trying to put the whole debacle onto regulators when he was the man in charge and the only man who could have straightened it out if he had only been honest.

Honesty in little things leads to honesty in big things, and vice versa. When you see photos of people like Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, and Charlie Rangle in the newspapers trying to explain away the fact that they arranged to get Mae and Mac and government entities to help the “poor” get the same “rights” as rich Americans, you can understand why we are in the mess we’re in.

The difference between the poor and the rich in these situations is that the poor cannot afford to own a house—even if forced on them by the Democrats. The so-called rich are more responsible than the poor—they pay their mortgages every month, they hold jobs, accumulate money to own a home and the poor do not.

It was dishonest of the Democrats to start the ball rolling towards home ownership for all people—whether they could pay for it or not. These Democrats aren’t complete idiots. They knew it would come back and bite them, except they dragged along a scapegoat, George Bush, who made our destruction a fait accompli by caving to the Democrats.

But in defense of George and Hank Paulson, John McCain and others, they introduced bills in Congress to tighten up loan requirements twice—once in 2005 and again in 2006. Both times Congress—mostly the Democrats who have been in power for the past two years—sneered at it and kept it tied up in conference so the bill couldn’t come to a vote.

This was part of the wearing down process for Bush. Someone innocently asked: “Is this guy back on drugs?” Bush effectively lied to his constituency—he ran as a conservative and for nine months has ruled as a socialist. I’m a conservative and if there was more time left on his term I would join with what’s left of the honest in Congress asking for the impeachment of not only Bush, but of Barney, Chuck, Nancy, Harry, Kennedy, Carey, and most of the Democratic Party. What’s the answer? term limits, no more than two terms.

What about honest Americans who pay their mortgages—and end up holding the bag for those who don’t? What do we do in these trying times? We go home each night and bring out the scriptures and again start teaching basic principles of Judeo-Christian law. It’s not too late to teach honesty in the home and insist on principles of truth and righteousness, of having all instructors teaching it in K1 through 12. That’s why it is necessary to re-introduce God into the classroom.

The atheists, Bill Ayers-type terrorists and others who argue against a loving God and intelligent design are arguing against teaching basic honesty and goodness backed up by standards of God found in the Bible that can’t be changed with every political wind that blows down morally bankrupt Chicago and Springfield, Illinois streets where governors are regularly tossed out of office for dishonesty, corruption, and abuse of power.

>TruthMeister’s Words And My Reaction

>Thank you, TruthMeister, I couldn’t agree more. You will find copy of your cogent words in my Political Disconnect Blog this morning (article above).

While after today we’ll know how successful
McCain was as a campaigner, it isn’t over. We will have to stay vigilant going forward. Life doesn’t end after an election–it begins–for those of us who daily blog the web channels.

Obama may win and he may lose. But his sordid character will come forth again no matter what he does, and it will continually be before us win or lose. He and his kind are a threat to our Constitution, which he would tear up and burn if he could get his hands on the original.

He has already shown his disdain for the American flag. He shows NO RESPECT for our pledge of allegiance, for our flag, for our way of life. He represent CHANGE, and it is dangerous change. He wants to rewrite our national anthem, transform money that you and I honestly earned into government funds, make government an agent of his strange type of so-called “charity.”

But he isn’t aware of something religious people have known all along. Government can’t give something as charity when it doesn’t own it. Charity comes from the heart. Government is an institution, it has no “heart.” It can’t give welfare to someone and call it unselfish charity–that can only come from people on a personal basis.

True charity requires love and respect, two traits government is incapable of displaying. Forcing people through laws to give up money for charity or welfare is dishonest, immoral.

It shows a lack of home religious training that Obama sorely needs. Kids in religious families grow up knowing that they do owe something to the poor, to the indigent, to the needy. But they also know that those decisions are purely personal. Government can’t interpose itself into that picture. It has no fundamental right to take from one and give to another, either by altering tax laws or by calling what you produce surfeit, taking it away from you because you have too much.

Franklyn Roosevelt’s welfare scheme was a wicked program. A better program would have been to let people keep their money and set up companies which could hire others, providing jobs for the poor and needy.

Welfare and affirmative rights are wicked programs. They make people dependent on government, on politicians.

To be “owned” by a politician is a base circumstance that we must reverse in our society. No one was ever eternally happy under those conditions because it lessens that person’s viewpoint of himself. It clouds their character, stifles abilities and limits their potential. It’s Satan’s plan to make people dependent on him, just as it’s Satan’s plan to make people dependent on government handouts.

I say down with the “Obama Change.” It is ill-conceived change. No change is better than what Obama would do to America. God forbid it!

>How a President Obama Would Fail

>How Would a President Obama Respond to These Madmen?

Late on the night of January 20, 2009, the next Commander-in-Chief will be driven from the inaugural festivities to the Oval Office where he will be met by a national security staff ready with a “Threat Briefing.”

Will the lunatic Iranian President Ahmadinejad be moving nuclear missiles into Venezuela, pointed north?

Will Russian stormtroopers be marching southward, trying to reclaim their lost glory by reigniting the Cold War?

Will Syria’s Assad be ready to hammer Tel Aviv through his Lebanese proxies?

And what of the other unhinged madmen in Venezuela, North Korea, the Sudan, Zimbabwe, Burma, and the caves of Afghanistan? All kinds of bad boys are hanging around the global water cooler these days…

Obama with Arafat Advisor Edward Said at an anti-Israel fundraiser.
By his own account, Obama would consider it a priority to meet at once with every evil thug out there – without precondition.

A stroll down the Champs Elysees with Ahmadinejad would make a rare photo opp – two men of Muslim heritage, there in an emerging Muslim nation, one of them holding a knife behind his back.

How did America get to the point when a greenhorn like Obama could be within a breath of the Presidency?

And while we’re asking…

Why are so many Islamofascists who are sworn to the destruction of America also actively campaigning for Obama?

What special rights would Muslims demand, and receive, from Obama?

Farrakhan fires up Nation of Islam to march for Obama.

After refusing to condemn for calling General Petraeus a war criminal, how could Obama be an effective Commander-in-Chief?

These are a few of the foreign policy issues answered in Obama Unmasked.

Then there are the questions about the homefront…

After Obama raises taxes the first time but doesn’t get the revenue he thinks he needs, will he raise taxes a second time? And how high?

Would Obama put a gun to the head of an unborn child, but ban all other uses of that gun?

One Obama says he will force states to allow same-sex marriages. The other Obama says states can make their own decisions. Which of these two Obama’s is lying?

What did Obama promise union bosses to convince them to commit more than ONE BILLION DOLLARS to winning this election?

Will ObamaCare drive good doctors out of healthcare and leave us to the mercy of, well, of who?

Do businessmen truly understand the tangle of workplace regulations they’ll see from Obama’s labor watchdogs?

Will the senior posts in an Obama Administration be filled with nutcase preachers, shifty Chicago radicals, Clinton retreads, or all three?

And, in the final analysis, is it fair to conclude that Obama offers only the simple slogan of “change” because he has little else to offer?

Obama’s oldest friend in
politics is a murderer and
unrepentant terrorist.
Why are they friends?

He has been completely masked by his handlers in Hollywood, New York, and Washington. His very survival as a candidate now depends on his keeping that mask snugly fit.

That’s why Obama Unmasked is so important. And that’s why your help is desperately needed to rip away the mask and let the voting public see what they’d really be getting with Obama as President.

Please use this opportunity to order at least one copy of Obama Unmasked, enjoy a great read, then share it widely!

And remember, when you get Obama Unmasked and then tell at least five friends to get a copy as well – you’ll help to stop the Obama media machine from rolling right over an unsuspecting electorate.
