Netanyahu's Line in the Sand

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu drew a line in the sand with his speech to the United Nations. He sted his desire for peace, while making it clear that Israel will see no peace without security. This man is sticking his neck out for his people. He is reviled and hated by a great many world leaders, however, he remains steadfast in his leadership of Israel. His people should be proud to have a leader such as this.

This also raises an interesting scenario for our own President. He must make a decision as to which sode of this line he will stand. Will he join with Europe in their march toward anti-semitism. Quadaffi and Ahmadenijad are waiting; they are confident that they have our President right where thery want him. They believe that they have him in a position of weakness, a position that he, in their eyes, does not have the courage to surmount. President Obama must prove them wrong and stand with Israel.

We as a country must also decide where we are to stand on this line in the sand. Israel has always had a bond with our nation. The Jewish financiers of the Amercian Revolution

Mr. Negativity

The Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds cannot seem to hold back his nastiness. First, he fails to effectively articulate a plan of his own. So what does he do? He criticizes McDonnell for his pro-life beliefs.

Then he still fails to articulate a message. So what does he do? He attacks a thesis that McDonnell wrote twenty years ago. Deeds has been, perhaps, one the the most negative candidates in Virginia's history. Now thats a record he can be proud of!

Back to the Keyboard

I have again found myself extremely strapped for time on this blog, but now I am back posting on the current state of affairs.

The Campaign for Disney's America in Virginia got a boost when Disney announced their aquisition of Marvel, followed by an announcement that future aquisitions were possible. However, it appears that a bidding war could be in the works.

We have also seen President Obama desperately trying to sell his healthcare package that nobody really wants. He basically called Sarah Palin a lair in his speech to Congress a few days ago, only to get his feathers ruffled by Congressman Joe Wilson calling him a liar. Although Joe Wilson did break decorum by outbursting during a Presidential speech, he later apologized to the President. The New Nobility just can't let go of their pride and insist that Joe now apologize to them.

Mike Huckabee is still rocking Fox News on Saturday nights. Whether you personally support him or not, Huckabee has used his platform to shift public opinion.

Lastly, the McDonnell, Bolling, Cuccinelli ticket is running strong here in Virginia. Conservative principles at work; it works folks.

Obama's Taliban Pow-Wow

Since September of 2001 the United States has been locked in mortal combat with Islamic Jihad. They have been locked in conflict with us since our founding. The war in Afghanistan has been a central front in that war. Afghanistan is a gateway of sorts. It is a gateway to Pakistan in the South, to the Islamic Republics to the North, and to Iran in the West. It has been known as the "graveyard of empires," because even great emporers like Alexander the Great could not control this region.

In September of 2001, the United States was plunged into combat against Islamic jihdists who decided to take their stand in this region. Fast forward to today, it is now 2009. President Obama has taken the reigns of power here in the United States, even as this critical battle continues. Although the Taliban has been driven from power, they have takent he opportunity to regroup and they have formed a formidable military force. Reports from the front, indicate that they have taken to more traditional military tactics, using formations and holding their own on the battlefield.

So the situation has gotten thornier for the United States. So what does our fearless new president do? He wants to come to the negotiating table with the Taliban! I am not saying that all dialogue against an enemy should be cut off. On the contrary, if the Taliban want to surrender, then by all means, let's talk. I am concerned, however, that they will not be the ones doing the surrendering.

This is not leadership on the part of President Obama.

McDonnell Scores Big Endorsement

Bob McDonnell has gained the endorsement of noted entrepeneur Sheila Johnson. Sheila Johnson is the co-founder of BET, a businesswoman, and philanthropist.

In the past Ms. Johnson has endorsed and given money to such notable figures as Barack Obama, Tim Kaine, and Mark Warner.

One thing that Mark Warner was often praised for was his ability to appeal to Republican voters. Bob McDonnell has that same appeal to Democrats. Conservative Democrats know that they can trust Bob McDonnell. They know that he has put forward the best solutions when it comes to addressing Virginia's problems.

Bob McDonnell seems poised to forge a bi-partisan coalition with people like Ms. Johnson, in order to take on Virginia's economic problems. Having a governor who can work across the isle to develop solutions will be a little refreshing.

Shannon Spouts Disdain for Tea Party Demonstrators

Democratic candidate Steve Shannon has just walked off the deep end. He has decided that Cuccinnelli is simply too dificult to face directly. So Shannon has decided to go after the thousands of Virginians who attended the Tea Parties.

This move is questionable due to the fact that many independent voters showed up at the Tea Parties. As someone who supported the concept for the movement; I personally am offended that Steve Shannon would take such a condecending tone towards American citizens who simply wanted their voice to be heard.

Shannon allowed his elitist manner to show through here. He simply cannot stand the common man getting out on the street to demand accountability from government.

Steve Shannon owes everyone who attended the Tea Party events an apology. I would not, however, expect the great Steve Shannon to hear the cries of the little people anyway. Then again, when has Deeds, Wagner, or Shannon ever really listened to the cries of the people of this Commonwealth?

McDonnell Generating Excitement

As I sat in my car in my local Wal-Mart parking lot today, I saw yet another vehicle with a McDonnell bumper sticker. Earlier I saw yet another McDonnell bumper sticker in the parking lot of my local post office.

While this alone does not cause me to make all conclusions about this election. I have seen many indications that Bob McDonnell clearly has the momentum on his side. He has a solid message, and it seems to be paying off.

Meanwhile, Creigh Deeds continues to use the same stale attacks against McDonnell, but alas, to no avail. Not only is Creigh Deeds using stale attacks, but the national Democratic establishment continues to spout this kind of junk.

Deeds and his allies can have their stale message. I am voting for a real leader.

My Thoughts on Sarah Palin's Departure

I have been gone for a while. In that time Governor Sarah Palin resigned as Governor of Alaska. While it is sad that she will no longer be Governor, this decision may be what is best for a potential Presidential run.

First, she will now have a much easier time visiting critical states such as Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. She can also throw her considerable monetary and political weight behind downballot candidates in 2009 and 2010. Bob McDonnell will now have a much easier time scheduling events with Sarah Palin.

Secondly, Sarah Palin can now begin building a national organization to launch a Presidential run. SarahPAC has already hauled in $733,000, since the beginning of this year, $200,000 of which was raised after announcing her resignation as Governor.

Sarah Palin is sending signals that she wants to be President. Since announcing her resignation she has been giving interviews taking President Obama to task on various issues. Her spokespeople have also sent out press releases touting Sarah Palin's stand on national issues.

By resigning, Sarah Palin is stepping up her national game.

Creigh Deeds Wins Democratic Primary

Virginia Senator Creigh Deeds has won the Democratic Primary here in Virginia. The best candidate for governor, Bob McDonnell, has put out a statement congratulating Deeds on the win.

I think that it is important, though, to understand what a Deeds administration would bring. He has touted the fact that he has a staunch pro-abortion record. He also has supported tax increases on hurting Virginians, left and right. Recently, he has even supported an increase in the state's gas tax. I don't know about you, but I do not want to return to the days when half of my part-time paycheck went to a gasoline bill.

Enough is enough, we can continue the tired policies that we have seen over the past four years, or we can have some fresh and new solutions from a Governor McDonnell. As governor Bob plans to increase the production of energy here in Virginia, which will help to keep gas prices low. He will put money into Virginia colleges and universities to lower costs for students in this state. He will also work to insure that Virginia institutions give better consideration to Virginia students, whose parents pay taxes to support those institutions, rather than seeing those colleges turn away Virginia students with 4.0 grade averages.

It is time for Virginia to have new leadership with new solutions. McDonnell-Bolling-Cuccinelli

Sarah Palin Gets It

We need to be aware of the creation of a fearful population, and fearful lawmakers, being led to believe that big government is the answer, to bail out the private sector, because then government gets to get in there and control it,". "And mark my words, this is going to be next, I fear, bail out debt-ridden states. Then government gets to get in there and control the people. In Alaska and America we know America is the greatest country on earth because it is “in God We Trust” not in big government.-- Governor Sarah Palin (slightly paraphrased)

Governor Palin has made a very important point concerning the continuing expansion of the federal government. Our government is spiraling, ever so quickly, toward a reliance upon man-made government, rather than on God. Our nation was given liberty by our Creator, that liberty is not licsense, but rather, is founded in the naturally ordained laws of God. This adherance law that "nature and nature's God" has entitled us has always been the sure anchor of our liberties. Governor Palin is to be commended for standing up for our constitutional liberties.

Convention Results and Thoughts

The GOP Convention of 2009 ended yesterday with a clear message and resolve.

Bob McDonnell accepted the nomination for Governor and delivered an address that rocked and energized the house. In Bob McDonnell we have a full-spectrum conservative, whose message of effective government that produces results, will resonate with the voters in Virginia.

For Lt. Governor, Bill Bolling received the nomination. Lt. Gov Bolling has an excellent record as Lt. Governor, and will do an excellent job once again. He is also a full-spectrum conservative that has done the right thing even when it is unpopular. Bill Bolling is a strong candidate and needs to be re-elected.

Ken Cuccinelli was nominated for the post of Attorney General. Ken Cuccinelli is a true statesman who understands the complex legal issues that will face the Commonwealth in the coming years. He will work hard to fight the encroachment of the federal government upon our state's rights, defend our constitution, and protect the right to life along with the values that have defined America from our founding.

In case you have not noticed, I am very excited about this years ticket.

McDonnell-Bolling-Cuccinelli !!!!!

View From Afar

Well... the Virginia Republican Party's Convention opened today. Unfortunately I will not be in attendance. For any interested readers, though, I will post some of my thoughts on the convention and what I am hearing via the grapevine.

My Endorsements: Governor- Bob McDonnell
Lt. Governor-Bill Bolling
Attorney General- Ken Cuccinelli

The Grapevine: Speculation out of Richmond is saying that if Ken Cuccinelli is to win, he must do it on the first ballot. Anything going to a second or even third ballot will likely see a Brownlee or Foster victory. It is important to remember that after a second ballot the person in third place would have to drop out.

My Predictions: Governor- Bob McDonnell (uncontested)

Lt. Governor- Bill Bolling (95%) Patrick Muldoon (5%)

Attorney General- Ken Cuccinelli (51%) John Brownlee (40%) Dave Foster(9%)

Anyone interested can check out a live stream from the Richmon Coliseum of the Virginia Republican Convention at Bob McDonnell's website.

Leaders for the Future

There has been a debate within the GOP about how to effectively reach out to young people. Some say that moderation is the key. They contend that we must take the Meghan McCain approach and support gay marriage. Some, even conservative, leaders have tried to move away from a strong stand on the social issues by taking a "leave it to the states" approach. While conventional wisdom would have us to take this appraoch, there is a point to consider.

Currently there are two young GOP leaders out there who have really resonated with their generation. The conundrum for people like Meghan McCain is that these young leaders, who have actually resonated with their generation at the ballot box, are strong fiscal, national security, and social conservatives. This model could be described as full-spectrum conservatism. These leaders are the model to which the GOP should look if it is to resonate in future elections.

First, there is Aaron Schock. This Congressman from Illinois knows how to win, having first been elected to office at the age of 19. He communicates principles in a way that students can understand, he also does not come across as someone who has basically lived in a country club for 50 years. He comes across as a young leader who knows his community. The best part is that he has blown to pieces the myth that all young people have "progressed" toward supporting liberal social positions. As a state legislator he had a 100% pro-life and 100% pro-family record. This was combined with a strong fiscal record to deliver a solid candidate.

Second, we come to Marco Rubio in Florida. Fmr. Speaker Rubio is currently running for the United States Senate against the more moderate Governor Charlie Crist. Marco Rubio is both young and Hispanic, two key groups that the GOP will need. He is also resonating with his generation. He formerly represented a Miami area district. He rose to become the Speaker of the House in the Florida Legislature. It is still unclear whether or not Speaker Rubio will win the U.S. Senate seat. It is unfortunate that the NRSC and other establishment Republicans have rejected Marco Rubio by endorsing his opponent in the primary. The sad truth is that many in the establishment wing of the GOP have decided that conservatives like Rubio are not as important as moderate voices.

Both Schock and Rubio can be described as full-spectrum conservatives. They are the leaders that are resonating with their generation, and it is candidates like them, that the GOP needs to put up in the future.

Revive Disney's America

You may have noticed a new widget here at American Youth. Following the lead of our friend Jim Riley at Virginia Virtucon, we are officially joining the campaign to bring a Disney Theme Park to Virginia. In a time of economic uncertainty, having an economic engine like Disney would create jobs and bring much needed revenue to our commonwealth.

I remember getting very excited about the prospect if Disney's America when it was first proposed in the 1990's. You see, I was a kid who was a fan of DisneyWorld, and you could imagine my disappointment when the deal fell through. I think that in retrospect we can see that rejecting the theme park, and its revenue, was a mistake.

Now, we may have an opportunity to correct that mistake. Perhaps you are reading this blog and you are not from Virginia. This could still benefit your state due to the fact that Disney employs workers from around that country and around the world. A theme park in Hampton Roads makes perfect sense for Disney as well. With a large population center in Virginia Beach, and plenty of undeveloped land not all that far away, the dynamics are perfect for a theme park.

You can even go over to an Open Thread and submit your "imagineering" ideas!

With all of that said, I would encourage our readers to join this campaign to bring Disney to Virginia!

Thoughts on Arlen Specter's Exit

As many of you have heard, Arlen Specter has left the Republican Party to join the Democrats.

There is a danger here that our party can misdiagnose the problem. The problem is not that moderates are leaving the party, the problem is that the Republican Party fails to appeal to the majority of independents. They are increasingly seen as a Beltway party and not as a grassroots organization. Arlen Specter was a part of that problem. Most Independent voters are socially and fiscally conservative, of which Arlen Specter was neither. Pennsylvania may be a pickup opportunity for the GOP if they rally behind a candidate sooner rather than later.

As for the claim by Arlen Specter that the GOP has moved to the right over the past few years; it is enough to make someone fall out of their chair in laughter. The GOP actually took Specter's advise in 2008, and nominated a moderate candidate--and last time that I checked, we now have a liberal Democratic President, whom Specter has now joined. Even President Bush, who was more conservative than McCain, surrounded himself with moderate advisors who caused his support to plummet in his second term. Conservative Republicans have not held significant power since the 90's when Newt Gingrich was the Speaker. I'm not saying that President Bush did not do some conservative things, however, his advisors hampered him, especially in his second term.

The American people are looking for leadership, and Arlen Specter represented a beltway brand of Republicanism that our party can do without.

The Miss California Story and Why It Matters

I am sure that you all have heard about the way Miss California was recently treated at the Miss USA pageant. There is a significance here that needs to be pointed out.

Twenty-one year old Carrie Prejean, a.k.a Miss California, answered a question about gay marriage by stating that she believed marriage is between one man and one woman. According to some of the judges her answer cost her dearly in the scoring. Later, many cultural liberals in the media justified this stifling of freedom of opinion, visciously calling her a bigot. All the while, she stated that she would be praying for the very judge that unfairly attacked her personally. This clearly shows integrity on the part of Miss Prejean.

There is a political side to this as well. Carrie Prejean has just thrown a monkey wrench into the propoganda machine that has been cranking over in the "mainstream" media. She is 21 years of age-that's right-she is young, and believes in traditional marriage. The media has long been pressuring the millenial generation to accept gay marriage in the name of "progress." Miss Prejean has spoken out in various media venues, as a student, in opposition to redifining the definition of marriage. The culturally liberal movement is obviously outraged.

As a student, I have observed that my generation, at large, is not supportive of redifining marriage, but rather apathetic toward the subject. Apathy should not be mistaken for outright support. Students across America have witnessed a fellow student being visciously attacked by the culturally liberal movement, and apathy can tend to wear thin. Students need to realize that everywhere gay marriage has been made legal, a restriction of liberty has followed. This is why it is critical for students in America today to not be intimidated by a cultural smokescreen which states that we all must accept a redifinition of marriage. If my generation truly prizes liberty, then they will stand up for the very institution that helps to safeguard it-the family.

Sarah Palin's RTL Speech

Just a few day's ago Gov Palin gave a speech to a Right to Life organization in Evansville, Indiana, in what is being called her first major national speech since the election.

This is significant for two reasons. She deflated and hit-it-home.

The deflating that I am referring to is not economical, but political. She referenced Katie Couric's antagonistic interview in a way that made the interview itself look silly. She also deflated the arguement that she is unintelligent. She made quotes and showed a clear understanding of the issues that are facing America.

She hit-it-home by giving a clear message to the national audience. Sarah Palin was well aware that a national audience would be viewing the speech. She dedicated a majority of the address to an issue close to her heart; abortion. On that topic she made a case for the pro-life movement that gave people something to rally around. Gov. Palin also touched on the topics of taxes, referencing the tea parties, and saying that Obama's spending policies gave her "heartburn."Finally, she touched on national security and foreign policy. Gov. Palin talked about missle defense and the need to cease the borrowing of money from hostile nations.

In her speech the other night, Governor Palin set the stage for her national message. The manner in which she gave a well-rounded message that stands in clear contrast to the Obama Administration, points to the possibility of an Obama and Palin matchup in 2012. She sent a clear signal that a President Palin is up to the job.

Thoughts on the "Culture Wars"

I want to address the issue of what is happening in the so called "culture wars" lately.

As my readers know American Youth is a conservative blog. So many of you can imagine how disappointing it has been to listen to the eulogies to the cultural conservative movement being broadcast a gazillion times in the media.

I want to encourage those who may be discouraged by saying that the cultural conservative movement is indeed alive and kicking, and I would contend, winning the "culture wars."

Sure, there have been some setbacks in recent days. We have have seen activist judges create a new right to redifine marriage in Iowa. We have seen the state of Vermont legalize same-sex marriage. Also, we have a President who not only supports such actions, but has done his own fair share of culturally liberal things, like promoting abortion and giving federal funding to embryonic stem cell research.

All of this can be very discouraging, however, there are some positive things to consider. A majority of the people in Iowa oppose same-sex marriage. The Vermont legislature that legalized same-sex marriage were elected by the people, however, so was the Governor that vetoed the bill. Meanwhile, President Obama's hyper-partisan abortion policies are not going over well with the American people.

Now is not the time for us to simply despair about our nations condition. Now is the time for us to seek God's face for the future of our nation. I don't know about you but I still believe the words of Ben Franklin when he said that "God governs the affairs of men."
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in Him; and he shall bring it to pass.
-Psalm 37:5

McDonnell has Strong Fundraising Numbers

The McDonnell campaign has just released their fundraising numbers, and they look very strong.

One thing that I think is noteworthy here is that Bob McDonnell has outraised two of his three Democratic opponents. They are also forced to spend their money in a tight primary while Bob McDonnell can store his money for when the time is right.

This is a testiment to Bob McDonnell's strength as a candidate.

Foreign Policy: Month Two

We are now in our second month of the Obama Administration, and the foreign policy situation has only gotten worse.

This out of Iran

President Obama's speech was not well received by the leadership of Iran. Perhaps he should have directed his message to the people of Iran and not to the Islamic Republic of Iran. Even on a miniscule point, the background lighting and the tone of his voice was gentle and sereal, not exactly the kind of bold statement that Middle Eastern culture expects.

In other (possibly related) news...

This out of North Korea

North Korea is perfectly willing to take advantage of perceived weakness from the Obama Administration. North Korea should not be underestimated by this Administration. Our thoughts an prayers are also with these journalists.

The Obama Administration must learn that peace comes through strength.

Do It Right

Word is coming down from the elitist tower in Washington D.C. that President Obama will issue an executive order lifting the ban on embryonic stem cell research.

This is a mistake on the part of Pres. Obama. This research will require massive amounts of eggs from women. We are likely to see poverty stricken women taken advantage of by a centralized program. This is not hope nor change, it is bad ethics. It defies our Declaration of Independence which guarentees the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to all. There are many children today who began as an embryo in one of these clinics, and was implanted in an otherwise barren mother. They might not have been here today if the Obama Administration's policies had been enacted just a few short years ago. This is going forward largely unregulated and has the potential to hurt a great many people.

There is another solution, a bi-partisan solution. Adult stem cell research. Despite the claims of some liberal scientists, there are adult stem cells that can be genetically modified to do the exact same thing as embryonic stem cells. There is a deeper reason here, the people who stand to make money off of this are aggressively pushing lawmakers on this matter, however, the American people are tired of the uber-liberal social policies of this administration.

Now is the time for cultural conservatives to get off of the sidelines and get involved. You can start a blog for FREE by going to the Create Blog icon at the top of this screen. Let's get in the game and fight the tide of unconstitutional action by the Obama Administration.


The Daily Progress has repoted that Dr. Vito Perriello has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Perriello family.

McDonnell Schools Democrats on Energy

The GOP candidate for Governor, whom this blog has endorsed, has given his Democratic opponents a political face full of fist concerning offshore drilling.

McAullife, Deeds, and Moran have clearly demonstrated that they do not have what it takes to get our state out of this crisis. Bob McDonnell knows that Virginia's future is in energy. The liberal contenders are still stuck in the past.

Foreign Policy: Month One

Charles Krauthammer has an interesting editorial about President Obama's foreign policy performance thus far.

Needless to say it has been lackluster. We are facing some serious threats. I know that many students are opposed to war in general. If you oppose war, I understand your opposition, however, these are perilous times. We must take a stand to preserve our liberty!

Since I've Been Gone

I am glad to be posting again after a small hiatus. So here goes.

Since I have last posted, it now appears that being a liberal idealogue now qualifies you as being bipartisan. My generation is staring down over a trillion dollars in debt, and government is again showing it's lack of solutions.

Despite all of this the God that made this nation possible is in control.

Energy and the Poor

Conservative leader Harry Jackson advocates for a change in the way our government addresses energy, due to its effect on the poor.

I agree with his analysis. The liberal movement may talk a good game when it comes to helping the poor, but they are not putting their money where their mouth is. While the average family spends about a nickel of every dollar earned on energy, a low income family spends anywhere from 20-50% of their dollar earned on energy.

The liberal leadership of the Democratic Party has consistently enacted policies that will constrict the flow of energy into our markets. They do this to force consumers to stop using oil. They have no problem with this policy because most liberals are well off and have no problem paying their energy bills. Those living in poverty however, will ultimately suffer due the the actions of an overbearing government.

President Obama has spent a lot of time talking about how he is going to help the poor. Is raising energy prices going to accomplish that aim?

Meanwhile, Gov. Sarah Palin has secured a Natural Gas pipeline that will pump an abundant energy resource into our energy markets, this will help the poor by lowering energy costs. Providing that President Obama and the liberal Congress do not restrict energy development elsewhere. Other Republicans including Gov. Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal, and Rep. Mike Pence have advocated for a greater supply of energy to be pumped into our markets. These Conservative leaders understand what the Democrats used to understand. That the free market can be used to help the poor.

So here is the question, who is doing more to help the poor on a practical level, President Obama or the Conservatives that oppose him?

Freedom for the Few

President Obama lifted the restriction on federal funds going to pay for abortions overseas.

In his inaugural Pres. Obama said the he would support freedom for all. During the campaign he stated that he would reduce abortions. This is a slap in the face to America's students many of whom are being taken advantage of by these same insidious abortion providers. Is this freedom for all?

Actions speak louder than words.

Sarah Palin Takes Initiative

Governor Sarah Palin is taking the initiative when it comes to accessing the God-given resources the state of Alaska has to offer. This will benefit all of us because Alaska's energy benefits those of us in the "Lower Forty-Eight." Sarah is proving that she is a solutions oriented leader. Seriously, take a look at this energy plan. It calls for 50% of Alaska's electricity to come from renewable sources by 2025. This is, perhaps, the boldest energy plan in America today. It is also federalism in action.

Cementing Virginia

Ken Blackwell lays out a compelling reason for Republicans to oppose Pres-Elect Obama's stimulus package. He brings up a previously unexplored point that many of these new federal "jobs" are going to be placed in Virginia and Maryland. Mr. Blackwell points out that this could give Obama an extra few thousand votes here in Virginia. I don't know about you, but I don't like the idea of Obama stuffing our ballot boxes.

They Just Won't Take No for an Answer

This past year the people of California, Florida, and Arizona passed amendments to their state constitutions defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. They made it very clear that they did not want gay marriage, and yet, you still have an activist judiciary who mull the possibility of overturning the will of the people in these states. When will the liberal establishment take no for an answer. The people have spoken. There is nothing in the Constitution giving people the right to redifine marriage. As a matter of fact, our Founding Fathers opposed the practice of polygamy on the same grounds as cultural conservatives such as myself oppose gay marriage. Attempts to redifine marriage have always been harmful to our nation.

Just today there is word that Pres-Elect Obama intends to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy at the behest of the homosexual lobby. This has the potential to reduce reenlistment rates in our military among soldiers who do not approve of this behavior. It is time for the liberal leadership to stop pushing their lack of values on the American people.

Great Blog Read

Found a great blog over at Dixi for Life

Check it Out!

Media Monster

The 2008 Presidential Election showed the sad state to which our media has fallen. Commentators masquerading as journalists fawned over Barack Obama, while tearing into an American Hero, John McCain. Even more disquusting was there treatment of Governor Sarah Palin.

So now the election is over, they have better things to do now, right? wrong. The media is as relentless as ever. From CNN's putting Gov. Palin in the same category as fmr. Gov. Spitzer and Gov. Blago, to a member of the media writing a book about Gov. Palin's "rise" and "fall from grace," the media is continuing their smears against Sarah Palin. They are doing this one, because the media culture hates God and takes it out on those who follow Him. Two, they fear Sarah Palin. Sixty-seven percent of Republicans and Independants want to see her run for President. The bigots in the media will continue to spew nonsense in the name of journalism, but because of their bias they are slowly on the decline. In the mean time their blatant disregard for the truth is a disgrace to the First Amendment.

Bob McDonnell for Governor

American Youth is endorsing Bob McDonnell for Governor in 2009. He has an extensive record in public service in the House of Delegates, the office of Attorney General, and in the United States military. Bob McDonnell will provide sound conservative leadership, he is pro-life, pro-family, and believes in efficient government. His record in the House of Delegates shows that he is a workhorse, and he knows how to work with Democrats in a constructive way to get things done. He will provide a clear contrast to the hyper-partisan administration that we currently have.

If you are interested in helping follow this link: Bob McDonnell

Tim Kaine to head DNC

Reports say that Gov. Tim Kaine has been tapped to head the Democratic National Committee. As governor he first said he would not raise taxes and now he is . He is finally cutting spending, however, he decided to cut spending for little things like public safety. His spend then tax policies have also given us a 2 billion dollar budget shortfall. I think most Virginians would say that his policies were more liberal than that of Gov. Warner.

What do you think?
