Freedom’s Wings Has Moved

We are not here anymore.  We have moved on up and become better than ever.  Please change your blogrolls and bookmarks because this site will no longer be updated.  Please feel free to continue to peruse the postings here and comment.  I will still check in periodically.  The new website can be found at http://freedomswingspolitics.com.  Make sure to check the website daily for breaking news, indepth analysis and opinion, a page to listen to the radio show and join chat without the obnoxious Blog Talk Radio ads and activism!  Thank you for your support through the years and I look forward to sharing all the exciting developments in Freedom’s Wings’ future.

Where Have I Been?

Just as the country needs to refound, so too will Freedom’s Wings.  I’m focusing all my efforts into one complete website instead of spreading out across many.  I’ve been working on that real hard and it will launch on April’s Fool Day (April 1st) and the joke is on the Progressives!  The website address is: http://freedomswingspolitics.com

Hope to see you there and please change your blogrolls accordingly! Thanks!

Is Momentum Shifting Towards GOP On ObamaCare

The Slaughter Rule or Deem and Pass has died in the House.  The controversial rule would have allowed the House Democrats to pass the rule rather than actually vote on the Senate version of ObamaCare.  As if we are too dumb to figure out that passing the rule means passing ObamaCare.  Now the plan for Sunday is three big votes: the first to bring the “fix-it” bill to the House floor. The second on the bill. Then the final vote would be on the Senate bill itself. 

I question whether this is the actually order of the votes because earlier this morning chaos erupted at the Rules Committee because a bill has to be passed into law before it can be amended.  Otherwise, the bill would be changed and have to go back to the Senate and be voted on again.  The reconciliation proposals would be moot.  So there is no way that the Democrats can lawfully pass the amendments before passing the Senate Bill and getting the President’s signature.  This would be another lawsuit waiting to happen just as the Slaughter Rule would have been.  That is more than likely why the Democrats dropped it because they knew it would not hold up in court.

Especially a Supreme Court that the President publically called out and the Democrats jeered at the State of the Union Address.

Happy Thanksgiving 2009!

Thank you to all of you who have supported my blog by either reading it, blogrolling it, linking to articles, backtracking to me and commenting.  You are all greatly appreciated.  I am thankful to God for my life and the sacrifice of his son, Jesus Christ, that my life may continue into eternity.  I am thankful to God for all the great blessings in my life, which include all of my family and friends, my two pups, my unalienable rights and all the necessities of life.  I am thankful that I have work and plenty of it that I am able to share with those who do not.  I am thankful to our military personnel who allow me to live safely in a free country that affords me the ability to enjoy my blessings.  I am thankful that I live in a country in which I am able to speak out freely via this blog, my radio show and at protests and rallies.  Because of my gratitude I am fortified and even more resolute in my fight to save this country from the destructive forces of socialism, Marxism, nepotism, corruption, godlessness, greed, envy and apathy.  May God bless you this Thanksgiving and God bless America!

In the past I have posted Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, this year I bring you Abraham Lincoln’s and I hope that you will join me on August 28th at his feet with other Americans who desire to keep this country the way God designed it to be:

“The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years, with large increase of freedom.

“No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most  High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

“It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.”
Abraham Lincoln, October 3, 1863

Conservatives Winning Twitter Battle

Liberal bloggers have had to admit that although they had the upper hand in the world of the Internet during President Bush’s eight years and the 2008 Presidential campaign, conservatives are the reigning leaders on Twitter.  CNN quoted liberal blogger Gina Cooper who helped organize Netroots Nation as saying, “While it is obvious the progressive blogosphere is superior, we are being out-organized on Twitter.  There is some catching up to do on the progressive side.”

Tracy Viselli who attended the liberal activist gathering, Netroots Nation, agreed saying, “”Twitter is a news funnel.  Conservatives are very tightly knit and getting their message out very well.”  And I would have to agree.  Twitter is constantly tweeting news stories and opinions from the conservative side as stories break and live tweeting press conferences, townhalls and speeches. 

“Twitter is the best example of the most modern technology and how folks are organizing,” David All, a GOP new media consultant who has helped galvanize the party on Twitter, told CNN.  He points to the success of hashtags – a popular way to keep track of a conversation – on Twitter. “#TCOT” (top conservatives on Twitter) has seen much more success on Twitter than “#P2 (progressives 2.0). 

And truth be told, I believe that conservatives are winning the battle across the entire internet via blogging, social networking, videography, internet radio and grassroots organizing.  Hundreds of grassroots organizations representing the conservative movement have formed during the 2008 Presidential campaign and in the months following Obama’s Inauguration Day.  I myself have become much more politically active due to the conservative activity on the internet.  And much more informed.

GOP “Leaders” Throw Sand In Sarah Palin’s Face

As I wrote in an earlier blog, the GOP just does not get it and they seem to think that eating their own is a good idea.  Mitt Romney insulted Sarah Palin in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union program on Sunday.  There is a full article on that here.  He was asked about Time Magazine referring to Sarah Palin as one of the most influential people in America and he asked if it was actually the most beautiful people that Time was referencing.  What an idiotic move!  We already had the left defining Palin as just a pretty face with no brain and now the supposed leadership in the GOP is doing the same thing.

But wait there is more from this GOP gang that is trying to promote themselves as a grassroots movement moving the GOP forward.  Eric Cantor and Mitt Romney blamed the 2008 loss on the economic crisis and not on anything the GOP had done.  CNN has a story and video on that here.  Mitt Romney commented to John King, “I frankly believe that much of what happened in the last election revolved around the fact that the economy fell apart at the time we were, if you will, holding the hot potato. Republicans and Democrats have been playing this game, passing the hot the potato, spending money like there was no tomorrow.”

Well, if these men (notice that no women are a part of this new campaign and includes only white men) would take two seconds to pay attention to the actual grassroots, they might get a clue what the GOP needs to change in order to be successful in the future.  I voted Republican because Sarah Palin was on the ticket.  Otherwise, the GOP would not have received my vote and I am in the majority when it comes to conservatives.

Listen up boys – we plan on firing you all, so stop wasting your time traversing the country!
