Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition Presidential Winners and Losers

Senator Rick Santorum

The Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition Fall Banquet, held on the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines last night, was anything but a debate. But, it was another opportunity to separate the wheat from the chaff in the 2012 Republican presidential nomination field. Read entire article…

COMMON SENSE: Herman Cain: Liar, liar, pants on fire!

Author: admin

By Bob Eschliman

In all fairness, I have to admit I once was riding the “Cain Train.” I had bought into his message, his position as an outsider railing against Washington, and Herman Cain’s success as a businessman who has been able to create jobs and turn failing business models around.

Cain Train?

But, I never stopped the vetting process, which is why I’m firmly back among the ranks of the undecided. I dug deeper as I got to know more about the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO, and I didn’t like what I saw.

For one thing, the man’s underwear must be constantly aflame, because he seemingly can’t open his mouth without lying.

Cain appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” on CNN Wednesday night, a move most political advisors probably would not recommend. And, it wound up costing him considerably.

Throughout the campaign trail, Cain has fancied himself a champion of the pro-life movement. Granted, Morgan roughed him up pretty good in the early going, but when he got a relatively soft question on abortion, Cain folded. Read entire article…

COMMON SENSE: Ron Paul’s only consistency is his inconsistency

Author: admin

by Bob Eschliman

This past May, during a GOP debate in South Carolina, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was asked about his stated position on criminalizing drug use:

      Q: You say that the federal government should stay out of people’s personal habits, including marijuana, cocaine, even heroin.

      A: It’s an issue of protecting liberty across the board. If you have the inconsistency, then you’re really not defending liberty. We want freedom [including] when it comes to our personal habits.

And, yes, he’s completely for de-criminalizing the non-pharmaceutical abuse of heroine, arguing that if it were not illegal, no one would abuse it. While that’s probably a deal-breaker for a lot of Republican caucus/primary voters, it clearly hasn’t hurt his popularity with his committed supporters.

But, let’s take a key point he made and it apply it to other pieces of his rhetoric: “If you have… inconsistency, then you’re really not defending liberty.” In other words, politicians who are inconsistent in their words and actions are not going to defend liberty. Read entire article…

Rick Perry: Beyond Texas DREAM Act and Gardasil-Gate

Author: admin

by Bob Eschliman

As an uncommitted voter in the Republican primary/caucus process, I’ve taken my responsibility as an Iowan seriously — probably more seriously than several of the presidential candidates, but I digress. I’ve been trying to vet the candidates, and unfortunately, I find many of the candidates offered on the GOP slate lacking. But, I know I’m not alone. Most Iowa Republicans seem disenfranchised with the 2012 crop. It’s easy to bash on the media-appointed frontrunner, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. His actions speak far louder than his rhetoric: he’s in favor of “partnership agreements” for homosexual couples — gay marriage, just by another name — and his “RomneyCare” program — by which “ObamaCare” was modeled — allows $50 copays for taxpayer-subsidized abortions.

What is the Black-Robed Regiment?

Author: Rev. Cary K. Gordon

Below these opening comments I have posted an erudite historical article authored by David Barton, containing information in response to a call-in heckler on WHO radio today. If you are interested in the veracity of my public claims that Christians during both the Revolutionary and Civil War periods of history had far more reason to “give-up” on America than we do today, you may find this information very interesting.  In my opinion, every American, especially modern pastors,  should take a very thorough look at the history of the Black-Robed Regiment.

While the article may yet prove unsatisfactory to perfectly describe the scenario to which I extemporaneously referred while on the show, suffice it to say the exhaustive documentation below does provide tales of equal and greater horrors for one’s consideration. One caller brought-up that history tells us of a English soldier called “Bloody Banastre Tarleton” who was known to refuse “quarter” to captured “rebels.” (This meant anyone believed to be a rebel was killed regardless of surrender.) In August of 2010, Glen Beck mentioned the burning of many churches during the revolutionary period and also suggested that there was an occasion where people were killed in those flames. This was mentioned during a largely televised event.

Specifically, Bloody Banastre Tarleton was nothing short of a butcher during the revolution. From what I understand he was known to burn barns, homes and churches alike. This was a more common act than some would like to admit. One source records a “six day period the British set the towns of New Haven, Fairfield, Westport and Norwalk ablaze. At least five (5) churches, two hundred ninety-five (295) houses, one hundred fifty-three (153) barns and a significant number of stores, shops, mills and vessels were torched by British troops.” Obviously, to burn down a home or barn or other structure, particularly if Red-Coat troops believed rebels to be inside them, made sense in the heat of battle. With that said, while it is very likely that Tarleton personally burned churches, the question of whether or not he personally burned  a church with people inside, remains in dispute. I digress.

For those who do not have time to read the entire historical context of Pastor-led revolutionary battle, I would like to highlight one particular statement from within the article (a short version) most germane to this discussion. As you will see carefully documented, there was hostility (yet still untold) against American pastors and their churches. Pastors were DEFINITELY KILLED and their churches were DEFINITELY BURNED! The brief excerpt reads as follows: “…No wonder the British dubbed the patriotic American clergy the “Black Regiment.” But because of their strong leadership, ministers were often targeted by the British.
