Arlen Specter Joins the Democrats

Woo hoo! It is high time that traitor switched parties! I have been wanting him to switch since I first registered as a Republican in 2004! Praise God! Hallelujah! If I was Irish and knew how I would do a jig! Now if we can just get Zell Miller to come to our side we would be so much the better! For right now we have one less RINO to worry about.

Okay now that I got that excitement out of my system. I am extremely happy to hear that he is joining the Dems because now we can stop counting him as a Republican and friendly to our platform.  Arlen Specter has been a thorn in our side for a very long time.  Many will say well having him as a Republican adds to our numbers and we need those numbers to have control in the House. However, what good is it to have him on ours side if he is always siding with the Democrats when it comes to legislation.  I would rather have less Republicans who are true to the conservative values that make up the core constituency then to have more Republicans who are always siding with the enemy.  It is not the numbers that matter, not entirely anyway, if  you can’t get them to vote with you on the matters that concern Americans the most!

I can’t say whether or not Arlen Specter was ever a true Republican or why he even joined the party in the first place. However, I can say with relative confidence that whatever drew him to the GOP has long since died and it is about time he admitted he is a Democrat.  It much like political “coming out of the closet.”  I am sure he is relieved he doesn’t have to feign to care about us bigoted Republicans anymore. I know when I switched parties it was very much like  a coming out for me.  I could say things that liberals would cringe at.  Things like  abortion is murder and there is no two ways around it.  Like homosexuality is wrong because Nature says it is wrong and will go out of her way to destroy anyone who consistently engages in it.  Things like marriage is not a right, never has been never will be! I was out and I was proud baby! I hope Arlen feels the same and don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya! Good riddance and I don’t know about the rest of  the Republican party but I wish  he would jumped ship sooner, it would’ve saved real Republicans like me a whole bunch of headaches!

Moral of the story: There is a God! And he’s a Republican. LOL. Okay maybe he’s not a member of the GOP but he is definitely a conservative! LOL

I Am Your Warning: My Socialist Life

communist-flag1While people are up in arms about the impending socialism starting to take over our country and while it is some foreign abstract concept for them, it is my reality. I know all too well what happens when government runs your life. What you have to give up, what dreams you deny. My life started out normal enough. I was born to a drug addicted mother and was put up for adoption. I was given to the Leichnitzes. They were a loving family with three children of their own and yet they had enough love for me to take me in and make me their own. Like many children of my time, they divorced and when I was fourteen my father was killed by a drunk driver. And so began my long journey into freedom denied, into a life I would never escape. denaleichnitzamos

I attempted suicide because the grief of losing my dad was too much and I was immediately locked up. I would not get out until I was 21 years old. I was put into juvenile placements while my father’s murderer walked around a free man. I was doing his time! I was told when to get up, go to bed, when to eat. I was a teenage girl and should’ve been going to dances and dating but of course any contact with the opposite sex was strictly forbidden. I was watched 24 hours a day when I walked in that place with my vomit stained nightshirt from the suicide attempt (I had overdosed on my seizure medication), even when going to the bathroom or showering, I had to be watched. I was not allowed passes to see my family because my insurance wouldn’t pay for it. So on special occasions they would write a pass for me anyway and tear it up when I got back. I have been restrained, given medication to sedate me and put into a “seclusion room” which is just a rubber room. I have had six men restrain me (even at 122 pounds I was a strong and rambunctious girl) and I have been talked to death in therapy. I have had rooms with a private bath and have had to shower with a gang of girls. I have slept on hard metal beds all in a row and eaten food you wouldn’t feed to dog. I have seen the boy I love been taken away in shackles3chains and shackles like he was a wild animal. He was taken to CYA (California Youth Authority, which is prison for kids) while I stood there crying. He cried too. I have seen people drug by their hair and bruises on their arms from getting too much Thorazine. I lost my adolescence because the state knew better.

During these years I created my own family since mine was being weddings1denied to me. The boy who was taken away was my “husband” and we had two “daughters.” I loved those girls and whenever they needed someone to talk to I was there. You can’t deny the need for family because it is just too ingrained. And if we couldn’t have our Moms and Dads well we would just have to be them for ourselves. I have been a “little sister” and a “big sister” and I have had more surrogate mothers than I can shake a stick at. This is how the state “raises” its young. Be afraid, be very afraid.

medicationsAs an adult I grew up and I was finally able to get myself on SSI. I needed that because they would pay for my meds. However that meant, never making enough to be self-reliant for if I did I could lose my Medi-Cal and that meant paying for my own meds which were terribly expensive. Still I have worked. I worked for LAUSD, where I wasn’t allowed to work full time because they didn’t want to give Instructional Aides any benefits. We paid union dues to the teacher’s union but never once got any benefit for them. I worked for LAUSD for four years. I did all the work of the teacher but never got paid like one. I have worked for places like Beyond Shelter and Shelter Partnership, which helped the homeless. I have done receptionist work, data entry and have even gotten paid to write. But always I made sure to stay below the radar. I needed those meds. So what did I give up to make sure I had my meds-a husband. I fell in love with a great man when I was 21. We wanted to get married but it meant each of us losing half our benefits. We were already living hand to mouth, we couldn’t afford to live on just one check. So we had a “holy union.” We ended up breaking up four years later. Once a year I get letters from the government asking about income status and changes in family status. Each letter strikes fear in my heart. Will they deny me? I had been denied once. Maybe they will do it again? What will happen if they do? I am going back to school so I can be self-reliant. Before I didn’t have God, now I do. I know he will provide for me. He always has.

But this is your life on socialism people. It is a life that is not yours. A life where any control you have is limited. It is a life where other people call the shots and not only do you obey, you thank them for it. It is a life where decisions like who to marry and when are taken from you. It is a life of emptiness. It is a life without fathers, a life without husbands, and a life without families. It is a life of lies. Lies like “I don’t need a man.” Lies like, “Only suckers work.” It is a life so far removed from God and anything righteous that you wonder if He can even see you. Does he know how badly you want your own life back? Does He know how badly you need your dignity? This is your warning. I am fighting against socialism because I have lived it. It is not some concept I heard about in an economics class. It is not something I read about in a history book. I have lived it and I have realized I deserve better. So I am going to work towards being the best person I can be and I can’t do that in my socialistic existence. I must rise above it! I must achieve greatness because my son needs to know whatever he sets his mind to adonaiatrallyhe can achieve and I am going to be that example for him! So while many of you are fighting against welfare, taxes and for more money. I am fighting for liberty! I am fighting for my right to exist! And while I thank the American taxpayer for saving my hide on more than one occasion, I must make my own way. I am forever indebted to the generous and benevolent taxpayer but I will always despise the government that took so much from me. You have been forewarned. Now go out and fight for the liberty of all your brothers and sisters stuck in this socialistic nightmare.

The Rise of the Black Conservative

Being a Black conservative can be a lonely experience. You are told you are a sell out to your people. You are called a self-loathing Black person while the actual self-loathers seem to make their way unscathed. And sometimes it seems like you are the only Black person out there that feels this way then something happens-you start hearing about others.  The Star Parkers, the Larry Elders and Thomas Sowells and you go, “Oh my goodness! I am not the only one! I am not alone.”  But even as high profile as those people are, they are still overshadowed by the Jesse Jacksons, the Al Sharptons and the entire NBA!

But with the advent of Twitter, You Tube and other social networks like A Black Conservative DigestBlack conservatives are finding their own voice and creating their own media.  Two up and coming Black conservative voices to watch out for are Another Black Conservative and Conservative Like No Other. Both of them are on Blogspot and both of them are strong conservatives who unapologetically take on the liberal establishment.  Conservative Like No Other is a deeply devoted Christian woman who uses her blog to not only disspell the lies of the Left but to give glory to Jesus Christ.  She is not the kind of person to passively accept things, I know this because when she joined ABCD she set up three groups and made several comments on various posts.  That tells me she is not one to sit on the sidelines but to get involved and make a difference.

Another Black Conservative is also very much a man who wants to change things and when he read my story on there he responded with concern and compassion.  When I read their blogs,  I had to invite them to join. They are both intelligent and speak with conviction. They represent the best the Black conservative movement has to offer and there are others like them out there. From Zo of MachoSauce Productions who has made dozens of videos depicting his conservative stance to Ron Miller, another ABCD member, Blacks are no longer bowing down the liberal establishment and are fighting back. Ron has run for office even knowing he faced greater opposition then most Black politicians running.  He talks about his trepidation in going to Black churches to get his message out on ABCD-must read for any Black conservative entering the political foray.

So what will become of the rising Black conservative movement? Will we see a re-emergence of Black conservatism like we did with the Civil Rights movement.  (If you don’t think the Civil Rights movement was conservative then think again.  It was a God-based movement, based on obtaining access to the political process and economic empowerment.  Sounds conservative to me!)  If Conservative Like No Other and Another Black Conservative are any indication, the Black conservative is  going to have some staying power.

Blacks started out Republican and now are returning to their roots, while others are going for much more substantially conservative parties like the American Indpendent Party and the Constitutiton Party. When those parties take off and become true third parties-it will be because the Black conservative made it so.  Don’t look the Black conservative to be loyal to the Republican party if they can’t be loyal to the platform. We are used to be the outsiders and so we have no problem jumping ship and joining a party that more closely matches our values. If we can leave the Democrats high and dry, we can leave anyone else.

We will not be ignored anymore! We are here and we will not sit in the back of the bus any longer! God bless all those Black conservatives who know the sting of alienation, well you are not alone any longer.  And we stand by those who stand for freedom.

Freddie Mac, CEO Commits Suicide

David Kellerman, the CEO of Freddie Mac,  was recently found dead at his home in the basement and was a victim of an apparent suicide.  Does this remind anyone of Vince Foster’s suicide during the Clinton years? Or even Marilyn Monroes’ suicide during the Kennedy years.? Excuse me if I go all Oliver Stone on you here and start smelling conspiracy everywhere but it does seem awfully convenient for the Obama administration that this suicide took place.

Remember outside of Chris Dodd, Obama was the second highest paid Senator to receive kickbacks from Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae during that time. Therefore, he has a large part in the downfall of the banking industry.  On September 11, 2003, the New York Times wrote a piece discussing Bush’s attempt to organize an oversight committee regarding these loans but was dismissed and told it wasn’t necessary and that everything was honky dory.  That the current structure was fine. Here is the important part though-“The administration’s proposal, which was endorsed in large part today by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, would not repeal the significant government subsidies granted to the two companies. And it does not alter the implicit guarantee that Washington will bail the companies out if they run into financial difficulty; that perception enables them to issue debt at significantly lower rates than their competitors. Nor would it remove the companies’ exemptions from taxes and antifraud provisions of federal securities laws.” (Stephen Labaton, New York Times,  “New Agency Proposed to Oversee Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.” September 11, 2003)

It even states in the article that ” Freddie Mac, whose accounting is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission and a United States attorney in Virginia, issued a statement calling the administration plan a ”responsible proposal.” So basically you got some crooks who are being allowed to have a say in how things will be run? Am I the only one who thinks that is beyond crazy?

So we have this sham of an investigation in 2003, an oversight committee that never  came into a play and a bunch of people who were willing to lie and cheat because they were guaranteed the government would bail them out and the guy who was in on it from the beginning is now the President of the United States and a chief witness in all of this now ends up committing suicide. Okay do I have that straight?  Excuse me if  I am not buying it.  While my sympathies go out to David Kellerman’s wife and child and I pray for their comfort in this time of sorrow,  I wonder what really happened in that house.

I don’t think we will ever know.

Oh My Goodness! I’m a Hippie!

aned3Some realizations are just more painful then others. This is one of those, I was joking at SGP that my son is going to grow up and tell people,  “Yeah all my family did growing up was protest the government.  It was like we were hippies but with morals.”  After that little realization hit me I sat down and wrote this piece. I hope it makes those wacky, Leftists who are calling us racists and threats to national security remember what it was like when it was their side being called that. And I hope it makes them stop, take a pause and for once in their life, actually do the right thing! Enjoy the reading!          ~Dena

As you think back on the sixties (at least from what I have been told gay-protestand read, I wasn’t there. LOL) and what described the “hippie” movement we are doing the same thing today but with a greater purpose-to restore God and country. But let’s look at some things we have in common with the hippies of yesterday.

lightbulb21) Pretty much started the homeschooling movement. Didn’t want their kids learning all that imperialistic garbage. You know things like how to bathe or the importance of having a job. And who homeschools today? Conservative Christians who don’t want their kids learning all that environmental garbage. You know things like light bulbs make the sun hotter or killing babies is good for Mother Earth.

2) Held protests about the government. Back then it was to get out us of adonai-and-generalViet Nam, make slaughtering the unborn legal and free STDs for everybody! Now with the Tea Party movement we have protests about the government, but this time it is to get us out of debt. To stem illegal immigration which is taking jobs from Americans and to uphold the law of the land, not to bend it, not to abolish it but to live by the Constitution and the principles it espouses.

trace-adkins3) Had their own music. From Jimi Hendrix to Bob Dylan, the music reflected what was going on with their anti-government scene. Nowadays it is country music that most reflects the conservative values in this country. Not every conservative listens to country music, but by and large the biggest fans of country music are conservatives. From Toby Keith to Trace Adkins, we revere the people who also revere our land.

dfd-family-pic24) Were counter-culture. The hippies were the counter-culture movement of their time. Working to bring about some of the most detrimental changes to our society. Espousing radical feminism which vilified husbands and children. Promoting dangerous alternative sexual identities and practices and becoming awash in hedonism. Now who is counter-culture? We are! As we work to bring God back to America, to allow women the opportunity to have children and stay home with them without feeling like a failure. We are working for the betterment of society by embracing traditional mores that lead us to greatness in the first place.  We are working to eliminate abortion but helping those with crisis pregnancies, solidifying marriage as between one man and one woman and not this anything goes mentality, making sure children have decent schools instead of the failing public schools we have today. These are the counter-culture’s objectives today.

5) Despised mainstream society and media so they built their own. microphoneWhether it was a pamphlet or a record company, the hippies of yesterday built their own media since they couldn’t depend on mainstream media to tell their side. Yet those hippie entrepreneurs of yesterday are now media moguls of today and today it is our side that cannot be told. It is the conservative movement that really has grabbed a hold of blogging online, Twitter and social networks like A Black Conservative Digest and others to get their stories out. The internet is fast catching up with the more traditional forms of communication (tv, radio, newspapers, etc) as where people turn to get their information. In 1994 only 2 percent of people got their news from the internet and by 2004 that figure had risen to 29 percent. Other forms of communication have dropped. In fact, television went from 72 percent to 60 percent during that same time (Trends, 2005, Washington DC: Pew Research Center, 2004, pp 42, 44-45) Conservatives absolutely despise how liberalism has become mainstream and doing what they can to stem the tide and bring society back into alignment with what is right and not just what “feels” right.

So there you have it! We are the new hippies. Maybe we need to come up with a new word. Instead of hippies we could be the chippies! Nah, let’s just stick with the Right, because after all, we are! But isn’t if funny the same things they fought for (homeschooling, the rights of parents to raise their children without government interference, to hold the government more accountable to the people, etc.) are now the same things we are fighting for and they are against. We’re the nutjobs now! But remember just a generation ago, you were fighting for the same thing-what happened? Oh I know you must’ve forgotten from all that LSD and pot you did. Never mind.

U.S. Boycotts U.N Racism Conference

mean-looking-obamaOkay Obama, don’t try getting all decent on me now, buddy. It is not going to work. But in the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, even to the likes of Obama (and boy do I hate when I have to take his side for anything, it unnerves me!) he has decided not to attend the Durban Review Conference in Geneva, Switzerland which is suppose to discuss racism but according to the CNN report singles out Israel for criticism.

US boycotts UN racism conference

Obama had warned them if they didn’t change their position he wouldn’t be a party to it and though they changed the document slightly it wasn’t enough to satisfy Obama.  You see just when I got my venom for Obama going, he goes and does something decent like defending Israel against her aggressors. Or like not prosecuting the CIA agents for torture. Stop it Obama, you are confusing me!

You can’t sit there and call our soldiers torturers and shut down Gitmo american-troops-huddlebut say everything the CIA did is peachy keen. You can’t allow a college you are giving a speech at to cover up Jesus’ name and not say boo but then defend Israel.  The inconsistent application of Obama’s “principles” is not just merely irritating but downright dangerous because you can never be too sure what side he will come down on.

Right now he is coming down on the side of Israel-which he should, but will that determination to stand behind the only true democracy in the Middle East continue throughout his tenure as president? Will Israel continue to be able to count on his support?  We just don’t know and if I was Israel, I wouldn’t be overly hopeful about it.  Bowing to the Saudi king sure didn’t convince us that his loyalty was to America let alone Christianity.  And the greatest ally, Israel has is the American Christian.

georgetillerThe National Black Caucus  (NBC)  is upset by Obama’s refusal to go to the conference.  And why wouldn’t they be? Racism is their bread and butter. Maybe they were hoping Obama would send them the manual upon his return “101 Ways to Milk Racism for All Its Worth!” Hey NBC, you want to take on racism, why don’t you go to Kansas and try to get Tiller locked up? Why don’t you take on real racism-the abortion of over ten million Black babies! Or are you too busy concerned about the bling life to take on the White liberals that are killing us?

And though I respect his decision not engage in this anti-Semitic attack towards Israel, I wish he cared about Black children as much! I wish he would stop funding abortion overseas and killing off the Black population here and abroad! I wish he would stand up for the 60 percent of Black children that don’t make it out of the womb! I wish he truly cared about racism.  On the upside, maybe because of this Jesus will forgive him for being a weenie the other day and covering up his name.  I just wish he would choose a principle and stick with it. In the meantime, I will keep a close eye on him and keep telling myself it is progress not perfection.  Maybe this is progress but I am not holding my breath.

America’s Tea Party

The video is from the Santa Monica Tea Party.

So I went to a Tea Party in Santa Monica, California.  I got my kid out of school early so I could take him to it.  I got my master flier printed up but couldn’t find a Kinko’s or Office Depot close to where I was to run it off.  Very disappointed about that! There were hundreds of people in attendance.  Well over the 152 who originally replied yes, I will be there.

There were Blliberal-media-biasack people,  White people,  young people, old people, mothers, fathers and a Democrat with the sign that read, “I’m a Democrat and I regret voting for Obama!”  I had a few signs for the event. One for my son read:  Mommy! Congress is trying to steal my piggy bank!” Everyone loved that one.  I had three others for me.   One said:  Politicians-  They R So Taxing!  Another one said: B.O.  You and Your Stimulus Stink!  The last one read:  Die you commie pig….no I am just kidding it didn’t say that! It said: He promised “Change” Now That Is All I Have Left!”  My favorite sign  was by this conservative hottie that read: Let Me Make This Clear-I Don’t Want You Stimulating My Package!”  I laughed so hard at that one.

Code Pink showed up but did little to affect the outcome. Though at one adonai-at-rallypoint the crowd did start chanting “Code Pink Sucks!”  My son though they were saying “Go Pizza!”  America was present today.  Everyone from all walks of life.  From the poor to the soon to be the poor.  From college students to housewives.   When Republicans can stand with Democrats and demand change from our government, you know there is hope.  A woman held a sign that said Lesbian for Liberty. At some future rally we might be fighting over gay marriage rights, but today we were united.  You had bikers standing with men in business suits.  Everyone came, everyone was accepted, everyone was loved. Well except for Code Pink.

dont-stimulate-my-package-guyIt was a wonder to behold.  What the media and leftist talking heads failed to grasp was this was not about conservatives vs. liberals.  Do you think conservatives are the only ones feeling the pinch or feeling betrayed by a government out of control? Do you Democrats in the real world are immune from high unemployment or that the trillions to pay this off is going to come strictly from conservative checkbooks? No sweetie, they are coming after you too! They are coming after everyone. So everyone must stick together.

obama-does-not-speak-for-meThe mass media wanted to make this out to be a racist movement but we proved them wrong today.  They wanted to make this out to be a Republican based movement but we proved them wrong today.  The press wanted to incur anger at one another but instead it was all focused on the government.  There were no incidents of violence when I was there and the people were too busy hanging on the speakers word when I left for it to be afterwards either. There was no hate. I was smiled and hugged and made to feel like part of the family. I was interviewed and I may not have sounded super intellectual but I didn’t sound like the idiot the mainstream media was hoping to portray. I responded respectfully and put thought and reason into my answers.  When asked if I thought this movement was moving people to anger, I replied that there have been no incidents of violence at any of our Tea Parties and while people have every right to be angry, it doesn’t mean we are violent. Those are two separate things.

We busted myths today,  some that even I believed.  Myths like there are no true conservatives in Los Angeles, let alone California! Boy, they sure shut me up about that one real fast.  Code Pink had a sign that read “Human Need not Corporate Greed.”  Granted I am a big woman but do  I look like a corporation to you? How is not wanting the government to spend the next 50 generations into the ground-corporate greed? If they are referencing AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-fine. But if they were referencing those speaking out about it-then they are insane! Of course Code Pink was sucking up to the media while they were there, simply nauseating.

It was a great event, despite the wind.  Despite the guy with a sign that read: Christianity=Paganism=Heathens=Nazis. Burn in hell. Okay, there is always one loon at these things. I did feel sorry for this older woman who held a sign that said “I support Obama.”  She was simply ignored.  No hatred, no threats, just left alone to the side. In any case, it was well worth my time and I will do it again in a heartbeat.
