Hello.... Hi there... I'm Cynthia Gee, and I'm creating this as a mirror of my other CommonSense blog at HomeschoolBlogger. I am copying the first several articles from over there, and moving them here in their entirety, complete with reader's comments. So if you see your comment HERE, and remember posting it over THERE, relax. You're sane.

Obama, And a Cause for Concern

There's a slick new Obama smear making the rounds these days, in the form of a video from "Eyeblast TV". I had planned to keep this blog clear of this type of garbage, but I just had to comment on this one, because people are eating this lie UP, without looking at where it's coming from. Here is the video, I will attempt to embed it here as soon as I can figure out how to do that:

This video claims to have been produced by a group from Durham, NC, who bill themselves as an "entertainment company, a political group, and a religious experience":

Here's more from "Illuminati" TV:

Illuminati TV also claims to operate a Christian film school:

... which makes me wonder just what their connection is to VisionForum....

And as if all this isn't enough, here's where their video's clip of Obama "refusing to place his hand over his heart for the Pledge of Allegience" actually comes from:

According to the Washington Post, this video "was taken on September 16, 2007, at Senator Tom Harkin's annual steak fry festivities in Iowa, an important ritual for Democratic presidential hopefuls. Contrary to the e-mails attacking Obama for disrespecting the flag, the candidates were not reciting the pledge of allegiance. They were standing for the national anthem.

So there you have it -- "political organizations" who bill themselves as "religious" are using slick internet ads to spread deliberate lies about political cantidates, and are teaching our young people to do the same.]

We should be VERY concerned.

Stumpin' Stacey

Stacey McDonald is stumping for Matt Chancey.

She writes,
"Matt (Chancey) is a rarity in our day…a true American statesman who isn’t afraid to stand up for what is right, regardless of the opposition. He is a wise man who knows the issues involved in this race and knows what is needed for Alabama. We have observed Matt to be a kind and principled family man who walks in his integrity before the Lord."

Read it here....

Then look at this!

A "kind and principled family man"????

Yeah, right... men with Chancey's kind of principles USUALLY rise in politics -- you could say that they have the "right stuff" -- but when people who are full of such "right stuff" also attempt to pass themselves off as good, honest Christians, it gives the entire Church a big black eye, and it's up to the Church to warn folks about them:

1Cr 5:9 ¶ I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
1Cr 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 1Cr 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
1Cr 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 1Cr 5:13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

I'm sure that Chancey's opponents will love to make political hay with Mrs.Binoculars, his Constitution Party friends' League of the South connections in the 90s as well as their citizen militia connections in the 80s, etc., etc, etc.

Allow a fellow with Chancey's "stuff" to rise unchallenged?

I don't think so... :)
