Obama Can Kiss Iowa Goodbye - Disses Sara Palin and Rural America

Obama Already Starts Dividing Our Country:
Rural Vs. Urban America

Mainstream Iowan hardly ever posts more than once in a day, but we are just ecstatic over the McCain's pick of Sara Palin for Vice-President. This blog posted Sara Palin as our choice long before today's announcement. Palin frequently had an approval rating above 90% in 2007 as Alaska's governor (now thought to be around 80*. Here is some background history on Sara Palin...

Then the "One" Obama's campaign already started dissing Sara Palin as a Mayor of Wasilla, a small town in rural Alaska. So what's wrong Rural/Small Town America? Perhaps the Obama campaign believes rural Americans are not sophisticated enough to be national leaders, or that Americans from large cities and urban areas have some kind of superiority or intellectual advantage over others. She already has more executive experience than Obama himself. We can hardly wait for the Biden/Palen debates.

It's Time For A Female Leader In America...
and Sara Palin Is That Person

Send Sara "Baracuda" into the rural Iowa and the rest of the Midwest. Others seem to agree... She is a woman faith who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. A Washington outsider... A fighter for government ethics against corruption... She understands the role of energy in America... An inspiration to young women... A high energy hockey mom with a strong work ethic...

On a side note, she has been a leader since her high school days. Wait until Iowans start hearing about her playing on her high school girl's basketball team as point guard and winning a state championship by hitting a critical free throw in the closing seconds. She was also head of the Fellowship of Christian athletes at her school at that time - and was the leader of her team's prayers before basketball games. As a mother of 5 children, she is a Pro-Life Christian and smart enough to understand and answer the question of when life begins. As a woman and a mother, she will not tell you her answer is above her pay grade.

In the meantime, the moonbats are beside themselves and are already trashing her!

Biden And Pelosi - Contradict Their Church

Pro-Abortionist Politicians Misrepresent and Contradict Catholic Theology

But the party's hopes of winning the critical Catholic vote took a hit Sunday when Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver said Mr. Biden should avoid taking Communion as a result of his pro-choice stand on abortion.

Archbishop Chaput, who was scheduled to lead a pro-life candlelight vigil Monday night here in front of Planned Parenthood, called Mr. Biden's support for abortion rights "seriously wrong," said archdiocese spokeswoman Jeanette De Melo.

"I certainly presume his good will and integrity," said the archbishop, "and I presume that his integrity will lead him to refrain from presenting himself for Communion if he supports a false 'right' to abortion."

Washington Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl and several other U.S. bishops are disputing statements by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during a "Meet the Press" appearance about the Catholic Church's teachings on abortion. They say she misrepresented the church's longstanding opposition to the procedure and twisted some church teachings.

But Wuerl and the other bishops swiftly responded, saying that the church has opposed abortion since the first century.

"Abortion is evil," Wuerl said in an interview yesterday. "It's the destruction of a human life . . . this teaching has not changed and remains unchanged."

Wuerl's objections were echoed by two representatives from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops as well as by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver, where the Democratic National Convention is being held. Pelosi's speech to the convention Monday made no mention of abortion.

Associated Press Article Suggests:
Perry Iowa Could Be Next...

In places like Perry, where Hispanics now make up at least a quarter of the population, residents are left wondering, "Are we next?"

"We are more vulnerable now," asked Angelica Cardenas, 28, who works in Perry's school system. "There is always fear of something like this, but with these raids, we know now it's real."

Police Chief Dan Brickner is matter of fact when asked if there are illegal residents in the city:
"Yeah. I'm sure there are."

"This is the largest targeted workplace enforcement operation we have carried out in the United States to date," Gonzalez told Reuters by telephone.

Postville's Agriprocessors: A Blight On Iowa

Company Gives The State Of Iowa A Bad Name
Governor Orders State Agency Not To List Agriprocessors Jobs

Iowa Governor Culver: "... I directed Iowa Workforce Development Director Lis Buck to prevent Agriprocessors from listing open positions on state job-listings services due to the unsafe working conditions at the Postville facility.

Before the federal raid, Agriprocessors already had a history of sanctions by Iowa's state regulatory agencies for water pollution, as well as health and safety law violations. Alarming information about working conditions at the Postville plant - including allegations ranging from the use of child labor in prohibited jobs to sexual and physical abuse by supervisors; from the nonpayment of regular and overtime wages to the denial of immediate medical attention for workplace injuries - brought to national attention by the raid forces me to believe that, in contrast to our state's overall economic-development strategy, this company's owners have deliberately chosen to take the low road in its business practices."

Global Cooling in 2008 - Earth Coolest In Five Years

Global Warming Apparently Is Not
The Fault of Man-Made Greenhouse Emissions
Worldwide Emissions Increase As The World Cools...

The first half of 2008 was the coolest for at least five years, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said on Wednesday.

The whole year will almost certainly be cooler than recent years, although temperatures remain above the historical average.

Global temperatures vary annually according to natural cycles. For example, they are driven by shifting ocean currents, and dips do not undermine the case that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are causing long-term global warming, climate scientists say.

Poll Shows McCain Now Leads Obama 46% to 41%

The "One" Loses Ground Among Democrats,
Women, Catholics & Young Voters

Republican John McCain has taken a five-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama in the race for President, the latest Reuters/Zogby telephone survey shows.

McCain leads Obama by a 46% to 41% margin.

And McCain not only enjoys a five-point edge in a two-way race against Obama, but also in a four-way contest including liberal independent candidate Ralph Nader and Libertarian Bob Barr, the poll reveals. In the four-way contest, McCain wins 44% support, Obama 39%, Barr 3% and Nader 2%.

This latest Reuters/Zogby poll is a dramatic reversal from the identical survey taken last month – in the July 9-13 Reuters/Zogby survey, Obama led McCain, 47% to 40%. In the four-way race last month, Obama held a 10-point lead over McCain.

McCain Should Pick Alaska Governor Sara Palin For VP

This Choice For VP Would Unite
Values Voters and The Republican Party

Alaska Governor Sara Palin

On Values:

Palin is strongly pro-life and belongs to Feminists for Life. She opposes same-sex marriage; but, she has stated that she has gay friends, and is receptive to gay and lesbian concerns about discrimination. While the previous administration did not implement same-sex benefits, Palin complied with a state Supreme Court order and signed them into law.

She supported a democratic advisory vote from the public on whether there should be a constitutional amendment on the matter. Alaska was one of the first U.S. states to pass a constitutional ban on gay marriage, in 1998, along with Hawaii.

Palin's first veto was used on legislation that would have barred the state from granting benefits to gay state employees and their partners. In effect, her veto granted State of Alaska benefits to same-sex couples. The veto occurred after Palin consulted with Alaska's attorney general on the constitutionality of the legislation.

Both McCain and Obama Have Chosen Their VP Running Mate

Announcements To Be Made Soon
Senator Barack Obama has all but settled on his choice for a running mate and set an elaborate rollout plan for his decision, beginning with an early morning alert to supporters, perhaps as soon as Wednesday morning, aides said.

Obama's deliberations remain remarkably closely held. Aides said perhaps a half-dozen advisers were involved in the final discussions in an effort to enforce a command that Obama issued to staff members: that his decision not leak out until supporters are notified.

NOBama's Religious Values

The "One" Avoids Answering Questions At
Rick Warren's Saddleback Church

No one expects Obama to lure the most traditional Christian voters from the GOP. Polls consistently show McCain winning frequent churchgoers by large margins. But in a close general election, Obama could win by taking a small percentage of the evangelical vote away from the GOP.

"Obama is going to make real inroads for people who want to be satisfied that this is a pretty religious guy but that he's not a lunatic," Silk said.

Thoughts On John Edwards...

Good Reasons Why John Edwards Is Finished

Excerpts From An Article by Susan Estrich:

What bothers me, in no particular order: First, the hypocrisy. Former Sen. John Edwards, addressing the question of Moncia Lewinsky's relationship with then President Bill Clinton, was full of holier-than-thou outrage about the injury Clinton had inflicted on his wife and daughter.

Sen. Edwards said on Feb. 12, 1999: "I think this president has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen."


There he was, sneaking into the Beverly Hilton, a visit he admitted he didn't tell his wife about, to see the woman he was no longer involved with and the baby who wasn't his. And worse than sneaking in, sneaking out — hiding in the bathroom at 2:30 in the morning.

What is a guy whose wife is fighting incurable cancer doing hiding in the men's room at 2:30 in the morning after visiting a woman he proclaims not to love? Hubris? Disgraceful, actually.

The third piece is that when he finally came clean, the story didn't add up. The affair was over in 2006. Except her friends say it wasn't. Except associates still were paying her until the spring of 2007. Except she was telling people she was in love with him, and saying unkind things about Elizabeth Edwards.

He was willing to take a paternity test, but she doesn't want one. Why wouldn't she? What mother doesn't want to know who the father of her child is? The only logical reason is because she knows the answer. His people were paying her, supporting her, arranging for her to live in a $3 million dollar house and he didn't know. Except maybe he did. It was his only visit. Except maybe it wasn't.

Russian (Soviet) Aggression - Still Alive and Well

U.S. Sides With Georgia - Moscow Violates Ceasefire

President George Bush has put the US more firmly than ever on Georgia's side in its conflict with Russia, sending humanitarian aid on American military planes to help the embattled ex-Soviet republic and displaying growing impatience with Moscow's aggression.

Six days into the fighting in the tiny, impoverished country wedged between Russia and Turkey on the Black Sea, Mr Bush said Moscow's apparent violation of a ceasefire agreement put its aspirations for global acceptance at risk.

In brief but stern remarks from the White House, the president demanded that Russia end all military activity inside its neighbour and withdraw all troops sent in recent days into Georgian territory.
