The Pumpkinhead Strikes Again!

Chris the Pumpkinhead Matthews of MSNBC fame, the man with the tingling leg, put the foot of that leg right into a bucket of something warm and brown. While speaking with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC about Obama's State of Obama....oops of the Union address, he spouted, "You know, I was trying to think about who he was tonight, and it's interesting, he's post racial by all appearances." What the hell does "post racial" mean? Then he stepped in it by adding: "You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour." Boy, doesn't that sound like, "Hey I have black friends...." or "Did I mention he/she's black?" etc, etc. And these people, meaning the left, have the gall to refer to conservatives and Republicans as racists? Can you imagine what would happen if Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity spouted such tripe? There would be calls for their heads on a platter. But if super lefty Chris Matthews pukes up such bilgewater? He gets a free pass, as usual when a lefty shows his true racist colors. Glenn Beck said on his radio program today that he wouldn't fire Matthews if he, Beck, was in charge at MSNBC. Well, I guess Glenn is  more charitable than I am. I'd love to see Matthews fired for what he said, because any conservative commentator would be out the door on his ass if he said something similar. What's good enough for the conservative goose is good enough for the liberal gander. It just goes to show you who the real racists are in this country, and trust me, it ain't the Right.

Score One for the First Amendment

The Supreme Court of the United States made another good decision in favor of the people, and the Constitution. The best decision they have made since the Heller decision. Heller as you may know, affirmed and upheld the individual right to keep and bear arms and struck down Washington D.C.'s illegal ban on handguns. Now in a 5-4 decision, the court struck down the McCain-Feingold ban on so-called "electioneering" communications. This decision means that corporations are people too and  have the right to participate in the political process as much as individual citizens do. Kudos to SCOTUS for this momentous decision. My question and what scares me is, like Heller, why was this a 5-4 decision and not a 6-3 or 7-2 or even unanimous? Seems to me we need to get more originalists on the court.

R.I.P. AirAmerica

It was only a matter of time. The problem with left wing talk radio is that the great American public will only take so much of being talked down to by arrogant, condescending elitists who constantly impugn the values of the people that make this country work, before same people say, "F--k off, enough's enough!"  The vast majority of the American public are also tired of listening to "progressives" (liberals) bash America and blame America for all the world's problems. Definitely not  good ways to have a thriving career in talk radio.

Scott Brown Wins in Massachusetts!

I never thought I'd live to see a Republican take over the United States senate seat of the "liberal lion" Edward (Teddy) Kennedy. Congratulations to Senator Brown and his family. Now, I hope the good Senator stands by his word and votes the way a conservative is supposed to vote. I hope all the ideas he brought forth in the campaign become legislative reality. And I hope he doesn't legislate too much. Last night's election was a direct repudiation of Obamacare, and many other Obama policies. Senator Brown, please stick to your guns and vote the way you said you would in the campaign, don't fall in with the RINOs, and don't go along to get along with the libs/"progressives". They need to be defeated, not gotten along with.

Maybe Political Cartoonists Are Finally Getting It (sent to me in email)


To Ed Schultz

Hey Ed? There's a new day dawning. The days when you and your Democrat buddies could buy elections are over, even if Scott Brown doesn't win tomorrow in MA, it doesn't matter because Martha Coakley will be thrown out of office on election fraud charges if she "wins." But I predict Scott Brown will win, because even people in that great bastion of Marxism, Massachusetts, are fed up with Obama and his minions, and you're one of those Obama minions Ed. You guys are the bastards, not us. You guys are always trying to find a way around the Constitution to realize your dream of a socialist Utopia, which by the way the great majority of people in this country do not want, much to your dismay. The way I see it is, you can either swim against the tide and get tired and drown, or you can come to your senses and join the correct side of the debate. Of course a third choice would be to leave the country like Alec Baldwin threatened to, but we all know how that turned out. Just goes to show you the Left has no integrity whatsoever. By the way Ed, Delta's ready when you are if you decide to exile yourself, I'll even pay for your plane ticket to the communist/socialist country of your choice. Just put it on my Visa.

Double Standards

Remember the comments Trent Lott made at Strom Thurmond's birthday party? He was forced to relinquish his post as Senate Majority leader. Why is Harry Reid given a free pass after making real racist remarks? Why was he not forced to step down as majority leader? It just goes to show you, Democrats and liberals can say and do whatever they please, while Republicans and conservatives are subject to restrictions and double standards on their speech and actions. Just one other question, what  party did the politicians who were against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 belong to??? I can tell you which party it wasn't.

From the NRA/ILA

NRA-ILA GRASSROOTS ALERT
Vol. 16, No. 51 12/30/09
FBI Reports Huge Decrease In Murders
As Firearm, Ammunition And "Large" Magazine Sales Soar




Last week, the FBI issued its preliminary 2009 crime report, showing that the number of murders in the first half of 2009 decreased 10 percent compared to the first half of 2008. If the trend holds for the remainder of 2009, it will be the single greatest one-year decrease in the number of murders since at least 1960, the earliest year for which national data are available through the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Also, the per capita murder rate for 2009 will be 51 percent lower than the all-time high recorded in 1991, and it will be the lowest rate since 1963 - a 46-year low. Final figures for 2009 will be released by the FBI next year.

According to gun control supporter dogma - "more guns means more crime" - the number of privately owned firearms must have decreased 10 percent in 2009. To the contrary, however, the number rose between 1.5 and 2 percent, to an all-time high. For the better part of the last 15 months, firearms, ammunition, and "large" ammunition magazines have been sold in what appear to be record quantities. And, the firearms that were most commonly purchased in 2009 are those that gun control supporters most want to be banned - AR-15s, similar semi-automatic rifles, and handguns designed for defense. The National Shooting Sports Foundation already estimates record ammunition sales in 2009, dominated by .223 Remington, 7.62x39mm, 9mm and other calibers widely favored for defensive purposes.

Also indicative of the upward trend in firearm sales, the number of national instant check transactions rose 24.5 percent in the first six months of 2009 compared to the first six months in 2008, the greatest increase since NICS' inception in 1998. Through the end of October, NICS transactions rose18 percent, compared to the same period in 2008.
More Guns Means More Crime? Hardly. In 2009, more guns meant less crime, in a very, very big way.

Strictly Personal by Chuck Baldwin December 30, 2009 (Posted with the permission of the author)

I have written this column for over a decade now and have never once written one such as the one I'm writing today.

Most readers know that I am the pastor of the Crossroad Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida. My wife, Connie, and I founded this church in 1975 with a total of 6 people attending that very first service. In June of 2010, we will celebrate our 35th anniversary as founding pastor and church.

From the very beginning, it was obvious that God had something special for Crossroad. Our very first Easter Sunday saw 255 people gather together to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. The church was 10 months old. First meeting in my mother-in-law's living room and rented community buildings, we have since constructed 3 auditoriums (the latest one a beautiful 750-seat sanctuary), an education building, office complex, gymnasium, and various outbuildings.

CBC has contributed to the sending of scores of missionaries around the world; we have seen several young men called to preach and sent out to plant churches; and we have seen countless professions of faith and changed lives. All of this is wonderful enough, but there is also something very unique about Crossroad Church: this church has stood by and supported me as I answered the call of history to become a major proponent of liberty and constitutional government in these United States. How many churches do you know that would let their pastors do what I have been privileged to do?

Think about it: I write this trenchant column each week, in which I name names; address the salient, penetrating issues of the day; and plainly address the sociopolitical topics that affect virtually every area of our lives. I have boldly rebuked Presidents from both major political parties. I have rebuked (and will continue to do so) neocon prosperity preachers. In fact, my criticism of G.W. Bush even brought upon me the ire of my dear friend and mentor, the late Dr. Jerry Falwell.

Please understand: I come from within the heart of the Religious Right movement of the 1980s. A graduate of what is now Liberty Bible Institute at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, I was the executive director of Florida's Moral Majority during the Reagan years. I was among those invited to the White House to meet both President Ronald Reagan and Vice President George H.W. Bush. I traveled to foreign countries at Dr. Falwell's invitation. I shared the platform with many of the Religious Right's Who's Who. I appeared on Falwell's Old Time Gospel Hour. He featured some of my columns in his Liberty Journal and personally lauded my ministry in public meetings and in print. I traveled with him on his private jet for several speaking engagements. I have met many of the "big names" in both religion and politics over the past 3 decades.

But when it became obvious to me that both major political parties (at the national level) were being influenced by the same evil people and were both marching to the same beat from the same socialist/globalist drummers, and that the Religious Right had surrendered freedom's principles for the sake of political partisanship and personal aggrandizement, I could not keep silent. And believe me, this decision has truly cost me.

When I criticized Bill Clinton for his Big-Government policies, I was regarded as a hero among "conservative" Christians. But when I began criticizing G.W. Bush for the very same reasons, I was vilified. When I was standing for the Constitution and Bill of Rights in opposing Clinton, I was a "true American patriot." But when I stood for the Constitution and Bill of Rights in opposing Bush, I was called a "Bush-hater," traitor, and worse.

But during all of this, my church stood by me. In fact, the church grew!

Then, in the providence of God--and with no personal ambition or covetousness for the honor--the Constitution Party (America's 3rd largest political party in terms of registered voters) chose me as its Vice Presidential candidate in 2004 and as its Presidential candidate in 2008. And once again, my church stood by me. Of course, there were some died-in-the-wool Republicans who could not understand or appreciate what I was doing that left the church--but these were only a small percentage of the church body. The vast majority of my church family supported me, loved me, prayed for me, and stood by me. And get this: they even rejoiced when Congressman (and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate) Ron Paul endorsed me.

And once again, the church grew. I ask you again, how many churches do you know that would do such a thing?

Today, I continue to write this heavy-hitting column. I continue to speak out for the God-ordained principles of liberty and constitutional government. We even archive many of these sermons on my web page for people to view and even download. See them at:

http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/sermonvideo.php

In addition, we now live stream my Sunday morning messages on the Internet. There are hundreds of people all over the country who regularly tune in to these live messages. Some gather in small groups in their homes. We have even heard of how some people rent out community centers in order that many people might gather in larger groups and watch these messages.

In fact, so many people are reading these columns, watching the video sermons, and listening to my radio broadcasts (heard 30 times a week on 12 radio stations in 5 states) that it is not uncommon for people to travel to Pensacola, Florida, in order that they might attend our church services on Sunday. Last Sunday, a retired Navy pilot visited us from the State of Hawaii who regularly reads this column and watches our video messages. Two Sundays ago, a couple drove down to Pensacola from Kentucky on their 17th wedding anniversary in order to worship with us. They had been reading this column and watching our video messages for some time. They had even purchased several copies of the archived messages and distributed them among their friends and loved ones. And get this: the husband had never trusted Christ as his Savior, but did so that Sunday he was with us!

In fact, we have heard from numerous people who have told us they have become Christians after watching our messages or listening to our radio broadcasts. One man wrote me and said he is now on the mission field after having made his decision for Christ while listening to our broadcasts. I could go on and on.

My Sunday morning message is broadcast at approximately 10:30am (CST) each Sunday. To watch, go to:

http://crossroadbaptist.net/live.html

I realize that all of the above will be of little interest to many nonbelievers who read this column. I share this information, however, to those who have a heart, not only for America, but also for God.

I also share this information to tell you that the recession of 2009 has hit Crossroad hard. Our church is comprised mostly of hard-working regular Joes, many of whom are associated with the construction industry. And as you know, the construction industry was among the hardest hit in the economic downturn of the last year or so. The result is my church is ending 2009 with a deficit of some $25,000. Furthermore, the next 6 months do not look positive in terms of a strong economic resurgence. Absent an unexpected turnaround, we could be looking at a deficit of over $50,000 by summer.

As I said, I have never used this column to request contributions to Crossroad Church--until now. But, again, I ask you, where have you found such a church as this? Where could a man such as I be given the platform that the precious people at Crossroad Church have given to me?

I have not even mentioned the Black Regiment that I attempted to resurrect back in 2007. Suffice it to say, we now have over 200 principled patriot-pastors who have asked to be included in our Black Regiment and who are taking a stand for liberty and constitutional government in their respective churches and communities.

See the Black Regiment list at:

http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/blackregiment.php

So, I am asking only this one time: can you send a contribution to Crossroad Baptist Church in order to help us continue this vital work? Will you help us continue to be a voice for truth and freedom at a time when our country needs to hear this message most? I shudder to think about laying off staff, shutting down outreach ministries and radio broadcasts, suspending Internet live streaming, etc.

I know there are some who could give a substantial gift of thousands of dollars, while most could only give much smaller amounts. I also know that there are tens--and maybe hundreds--of thousands of people who read this column. If everyone who feels impressed would send whatever they could afford, this deficit would be eliminated and the need would be met.

In the classic Christmas movie, "It's A Wonderful Life," the angel, Clarence, told George Bailey, "No man is a failure who has friends." I thank God for the many friends he has given this work and me. Many of you have purchased THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS or contributed to Chuck Baldwin Live, which produces this column. But this request is not for me, it is on behalf of the church that I pastor.

So, I ask this once: would you send a tax-deductible contribution to Crossroad Baptist Church? If you are willing to do this, you can either send an online donation via a credit card, or you can write a check or Money Order.

To donate online, go to:

http://www.crossroadbaptist.net/donate.php

Or, send a check or Money Order made payable to:

Crossroad Baptist Church
P.O. Box 37039
Pensacola, Florida 32526

Again, in over 10 years of writing this column, this is first time I have ever made such a request. If the need were not serious, I would not write this. But I also know that there are thousands of readers who truly support this work and want to see it continue, as there is a dearth of churches that are willing to take such a bold and courageous stand for God and country. If you can help, your support is much appreciated. And, yes, your gift to the church is tax deductible.

And once more, thank you for reading my columns.

*If you appreciate this column and want to help me distribute these editorial opinions to an ever-growing audience, donations may now be made by credit card, check, or Money Order. Use this link:
