New York Times Defends Tebow Pro-Life Ad

New York Times Defends Pro-Life Ad Featuring Tim Tebow, Mom's Non-Abortion

by Steven Ertelt Editor
January 31
, 2010

New York, NY ( -- The New York Times is no bastion of pro-life thought and has taken a consistently aggressive pro-abortion stance over the years. In what may come as a shock to pro-life advocates, the liberal newspaper issued an editorial today taking abortion advocates to task for blasting an ad featuring Tim Tebow.

As has reported, the ad, sponsored by Focus on the Family, will reportedly focus on the story of Tebow's birth.

Tebow's mother, Pam Tebow, rejected a doctor's suggestion to get an abortion when she became ill on a missions trip to the Philippines during her pregnancy with Tim. Tebow gave birth to Tim and he famously won the 2007 Heisman Trophy and led the Florida Gators to a college football championship.

The Focus on the Family ad has drawn attacks from abortion advocates, who have called on CBS to cancel its plans to allow the ad to air before and after the Super Bowl, and feminist attorney Gloria Allred has made the claim Pam Tebow made up her story about rejecting an abortion.

Give Me a Cotton Picking Break!!!!!!!!!

Perfectly illustrates why I dropped my Newsweek subscription after many, many years. The final straw was when they changed their format to a page of tiny print and one little narrow horizonal graphic at the top of the page. To save ink and paper I suppose. But the writing was already on the wall. And that was one thing I could read, even in that tiny print. It said "Don't renew to your subscription to this liberal rag."

There's a Ford in Our Future

by Janet Crain
Amid Toyota's problems and its self inflicted exacerbation of those problems, it's nice to hear that a traditional American company has posted a profit.

Ford Says It Made $2.7 Billion in 2009, Its First Annual Profit in Four Years

The Ford Motor Company said Thursday that it made $2.7
billion in 2009, and that it would be profitable in 2010 and
beyond. Ford says it benefited from cost-cutting, debt
reduction and popular cars and trucks like the Ford Fusion
sedan and Escape SUV. Ford's net income of 86 cents per share
rose from the year before, when it lost a record $14.6

President Brown???

Newsmax/Zogby Poll: Scott Brown Could Defeat Obama in Presidential Race

By: David A. Patten

A stunning new poll conducted by Newsmax/Zogby reveals that Massachusett's new Republican Senator-elect Scott Brown could defeat President Barack Obama in a presidential election.

The Newsmax/Zogby poll released Tuesday found that the pair would be statistically deadlocked if the presidential election was held today.

The poll indicates surprisingly weak support for the president among independent voters, who favor the tyro Brown by 48.6 percent to 36 percent in a hypothetical matchup against Obama.

Mark McKinnon, the respected political strategist who created former President George W. Bush's successful television ad campaigns in 2000 and 2004, told Newsmax that the survey results should trigger alarms for Team Obama.

"The real problem for Obama is that he has lost the middle, and losing the middle means losing independents," McKinnon said. "And it is independents that are responsible for swinging elections one way or the other in this country. So if you lose independents, you're going to lose the presidency."

Choosing Life Ad Stirs Controversary Among Loopy Illogical Libs

by Janet Crain
Whatever your beliefs are about this controversy, I think only someone consumed with loopy liberal logic as Joy Behar could make the comments she did this morning on The View. In an attempt to refute the idea that there is a wonderful possibility that a child might turn out to be a bright intelligent worthy human being if given the chance and not aborted, she said "Yes, but they might also turn out to be a serial killer like Ted Bundy".

This is so stupid, it defies comprehension. Using that logic it would be inadvisable for anyone to have a child. And that would be a most tragic end of our human race. I'm so glad most people understand that FAITH is the substance of things HOPED for, the evidence of things unseen, and take that lovely leap of faith to bring a new person into this world, imperfect as it may be. Joy Behar seems to be a bitter old person who has never known the joy of the pure love of a child.

Please let CBS know you support their decision to run this ad.

Anti-abortion group to screen TV ad to 100m Super Bowl viewers

Christian conservative group Focus on the Family buys costly 30-second spot during American football final

American footballer Tim Tebow will front an anti-abortion advert

Next month's Super Bowl broadcast, which garners an enormous TV audience, will feature an advert paid for by an anti-abortion evangelical Christian group.

A former college football star known for his outspoken beliefs will appear in the costly 30-second spot bought by Focus on the Family, a Colorado-based ministry influential in Christian conservative politics.

Nearly 100 million Americans are expected to tune in to Super Bowl XLIV on 7 February in Miami Gardens, south Florida. The adverts attract nearly as much attention as the game itself, with Americans watching to see how brands vie for consumers' attention. The Focus on the Family advert is a rare spot from an advocacy group.

The advertisement will feature Tim Tebow, former champion quarterback for the University of Florida football team, who painted Bible quotations under his eyes during games. Focus on the Family and CBS television, the network broadcasting the game, did not disclose the cost of the advert, but media analysts say the cost of a 30-second spot will run between $2.5m and $2.8m.

The advert, entitled Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life, will feature Tebow and his mother Pam, who will tell what the group describes as an inspiring story from her life. It has not released details of the advert, but US media have speculated that she will describe a 1987 pregnancy during which she became ill on a missionary trip to the Philippines. She ignored medical advice to have an abortion, instead giving birth to Tim.

"We're not trying to sell the American people a car or a soft drink," said spokesman Gary Schneeberger. "We're celebrating families."

Schneeberger said the group hopes to influence couples having "struggles" in their marriage. Tebow's father, Bob, runs a group that leads evangelical missions in the Philippines and founded an orphanage there.

The Super Bowl airs alongside creative but often crass adverts for beer, car manufacturers and internet companies, and the network that broadcasts the game normally shies away from controversy. In addition, advocacy groups typically lack the budget to purchase Super Bowl airtime. Focus on the Family said the funds were provided by wealthy supporters.

Blinded by the Light............

by Janet Crain

Here is a woman, Jill Dorson, being widely quoted today who shot herself in both feet in a fit if pique because McCain picked a young beautiful woman she couldn't stomach. Rather than face up to her own prejudices she blames McCain and anyone else handy.

The comments at the end of this article are very telling. I would say 95% saw through her foolish shortcomings and pointed them out to her. She still doesn't get it and probably never will.

Why I Regret Voting For President Obama

By Jill Dorson

I am a registered Independent. I voted for Barack Obama. And for that, I am sorry.

I'm not sorry for you. I'm sorry for me. Because I voted for Obama for me, not for you. I voted for hope and change and all the intangibles that Obama was peddling in the wake of the financial crisis, Sarah Palin, Sept. 11 and all the other ills that shook our country in the last decade. I wanted something new. Something different. What I got was, I suppose, exactly what I voted for - a spin doctor. And not a very good one at that.

Before John McCain unwittingly picked a tabloid-magazine cover girl for his running mate, I was leaning toward going Republican this time around. I did the second time Bush was on the ballot and I very nearly did the first time, too. But as soon as Palin climbed out of her igloo and onto the national scene, well, there was no turning back for me.

You see, I felt my choice was to risk McCain dropping dead and letting the world's most well-known hockey mom run this country, or to believe that Obama would surround himself with educated people and that he was smart enough to take their advice.

This video is a hoot!!! Thanks to a reader for suggesting it!!!

Hat Tip: Stacy
Rajendra Pachauri
Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Photo: STEFAN WERMUTH/REUTERS

I can report a further dramatic twist to what has inevitably been dubbed "Glaciergate" – the international row surrounding the revelation that the latest report on global warming by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) contained a wildly alarmist, unfounded claim about the melting of Himalayan glaciers. Last week, the IPCC, led by its increasingly controversial chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, was forced to issue an unprecedented admission: the statement in its 2007 report that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 had no scientific basis, and its inclusion in the report reflected a "poor application" of IPCC procedures.

What has now come to light, however, is that the scientist from whom this claim originated, Dr Syed Hasnain, has for the past two years been working as a senior employee of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), the Delhi-based company of which Dr Pachauri is director-general. Furthermore, the claim – now disowned by Dr Pachauri as chairman of the IPCC – has helped TERI to win a substantial share of a $500,000 grant from one of America's leading charities, along with a share in a three million euro research study funded by the EU.

At the same time, Dr Pachauri has personally been drawn into a major row with the Indian government, previously among his leading supporters, after he described as "voodoo science" an official report by the country's leading glaciologist, Dr Vijay Raina, which dismissed Dr Hasnain's claims as baseless. Now that the IPCC has disowned the prediction made by his employee, Dr Pachauri has been castigated by India's environment minister, Jairam Ramesh, and called on by Dr Raina to apologise for his "voodoo science" charge. At a stormy Delhi press conference on Thursday, Dr Pachauri was asked whether he intended to resign as chairman of the IPCC – on whose behalf he collected a Nobel Peace Prize two years ago, alongside Al Gore – but he refused to answer questions on this fast-escalating row.

Barry as a Populist? Now That's Funny!!!!

by Janet Crain
This one has my head spinning. Just a few months ago populists were being roundly condemned as dangerous subversives by the Dems and MSM. They were pictured in Newsweek as an angry mob brandishing pitchforks. Editor Jon Meacham remarked; "“As we argue in this week’s cover, the problem with populist rage—defined as the discernible public feeling that the few are unjustly profiting at the expense of the many—is that while it is cathartic, it can lead to bad decisions that may make the situation against which one is raging even worse. …". David Sirota even pictured a pitchfork wielding mob on the cover of his book The Uprising.

But now that Obama (or more likely his advisers) have got it through their heads that Populists are quite popular these days, he has decided to pose as one. His best talent; being a poser. Trouble is he hasn't the foggiest idea of what a populist is.

Let me give you a few hints, Barry Boy.

I have never heard of a populist who attended 8 years of school at the most expensive private school in Hawaii.

A populist has not jetted around the world as a college student visiting exotic dope smoking locales and living off their Grandma.

Very few populists took a sabbatical immediately upon graduation from college to live in Bali, Indonesa and laze around all day write a book about his criminal past misadventures.

Very few populists eat arugula. Or Koby beef. Nor do they, their wives or children wear designer clothes to dig in the garden.

I could go on and on, but I think even Obama and his advisers need to realize that like grapes that make good wine, populists have suffered at some point in their lives. They understand and emphasize with the suffering of others. In fact if they see a bunch of people suffering needlessly because of government misdeeds, they have been known to get mad as Hell. But they don't riot and break laws. They have.....tea parties. :-)

U.S. agrees to timetable for UN Gun Ban

The United Nations and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are moving forward with their plan to confiscate your guns.

The United States joined 152 other countries in support of the Arms Trade Treaty Resolution, which establishes the dates for the 2012 UN conference intended to attack American sovereignty by stripping Americans of the right to keep and bear arms.

Working groups of anti-gun countries will begin scripting language for the conference this year, creating a blueprint for other countries when they meet at the full conference.

The stakes couldn't be higher.

Former United Nation's ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners about the Arms Trade Treaty and says the UN “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there’s no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”

Establishing the dates for the Arms Trade Treaty Conference is just the first step toward their plans for total gun confiscation.

The worldwide gun control mob will ensure the passage of an egregious, anti-gun treaty...

. . .and that's where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton steps in.

Once the UN Gun Ban is passed by the General Assembly of the United Nations it must be ratified by each nation, including the United States.

As an arch enemy of gun owners, Clinton has pledged to push the U.S. Senate to ratify the treaty. She will push for passage of this outrageous treaty designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

That’s why it’s vital you sign the special petition I’ve made up for your signature that DEMANDS your U.S. Senators vote AGAINST ratification of the UN’s “Small Arms Treaty.”

Martha Has Already Lost

A loser and a sore loser at that.

No matter what happens at the ballot box tomorrow, one thing is certain: Martha Coakley is a loser.

Even if Bill Clinton and Barack Obama can somehow rescue her candidacy, Coakley will never recover from the self-inflicted damage of the worst political campaign in recent history.

Democrats Scrambling to Come Up With a Plan B

Democrats May Seek to Push Health Bill Through House

Published: January 18, 2010

WASHINGTON — The White House and Democratic Congressional leaders, scrambling for a backup plan to rescue their health care legislation if Republicans win the special election in Massachusetts on Tuesday, have begun laying the groundwork to ask House Democrats to approve the Senate version of the bill and send it directly to President Obama for his signature.

A victory by the Republican, Scott Brown, in Massachusetts would deny Democrats the 60th vote they need in the Senate to surmount Republican filibusters and advance the health legislation.

And with the race too close to call, Democrats are considering several options to save the bill, which could be a major factor in how they fare in this year’s midterm elections.

What a Difference a Year Makes

by Janet Crain; Liberal Joan Walsh having second thoughts about the Messiah? Hint, Joan, populists drive pickups, not make fun of them.

"From a black church in DC to a Martha Coakley rally in Boston, Obama makes a fired-up populist pitch for his agenda
President Obama speaks at a campaign stop for Democratic senate candidate Martha Coakley on Sunday

What strange forces conspired to schedule a crucial, down-to-the-wire Senate race that Democrats can't afford to lose, almost exactly a year to the day after Barack Obama's historic inauguration? For Obama supporters, there's no time to commemorate the glorious events of a year ago. All that joy and promise has turned to dread and doubt, as a defeat for Martha Coakley on Jan. 19 could block Obama's signature policy initiative, health care reform. If she loses, Obama wakes up Jan. 20 to endless news cycles declaring his presidency, having lost its 60-vote Senate majority, either impotent or doomed. What a difference a year makes.

Against that backdrop, it was fascinating to watch the president take time to preach Sunday morning (just hours before stumping for Coakley in Boston) at Vernon Avenue Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., the legendary black church that hosted Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in December, 1956. I was surprised to see Obama lay out parallels between the struggles of King's movement, and his own.

Surprised, because almost a year after his inauguration, I've stopped seeing Obama's career as having much to do with a movement. That's not to deny that the election of our first black president was a huge civil right milestone, and owed an enormous debt to that movement's hard work and heroes. It was, and it did. But the Obama White House has mostly seemed to shed the "movement" trappings that elected him in 2008, to the chagrin of progressives of every race who saw his campaign as the highest expression of the social justice and civil rights movement, and who made his election the cause of their lifetimes.

On Sunday Obama seemed to be trying to get that movement mojo back, and reassure disillusioned liberals that change requires compromise as well as a long view of social progress -- and I found myself wondering, was it desperation? Manipulation? A rare glimpse inside the way Obama thinks about the arc of social justice, and his place in it? Maybe it doesn't matter: We all turn (back) to faith and the community in times of trouble, and Obama is in some trouble right now. It gave me a lot to think about.

Is Coakley about to Croak?

Martha CRCoakley

Heat of the race shows Martha’s true character

By Joe Fitzgerald
Monday, January 18, 2010 -

If the old saw is true, that a clear conscience is the softest pillow, Scott Brown ought to sleep well tonight, content he took the high road in his bid to succeed Ted Kennedy.

He proved you don’t have to go to every fight you’re invited to, no matter how much you’re provoked by a desperate opponent willing to win by any means necessary.

If Martha Coakley was accurately portrayed by her campaign, shame on her; if the portrayal that emerged was the handiwork of her handlers, shame on them.

And what the heat of this campaign revealed was that Coakley, who started out presenting herself as a woman of grace and dignity, is, in fact, the personification of the old boys’ network.

She almost had us fooled, but then she began to feel the heat.

She ignored a reporter’s uncomfortable question, then looked the other way while one of her toadies knocked him to the ground. And she’s our top law enforcement officer? Please.

She asked us to believe that Brown, who has two daughters, is totally callous to the trauma of rape. How scurrilous.


The national implications of this campaign are obvious; the returns will be seen by many as a referendum on the president, for a Brown victory would suggest Americans are not happy with the way the country’s going.

But the local implications are enormous, too, because in Massachusetts we’re not used to having our opinions matter.

Referenda? We told the Beacon Hill crowd how we felt about term limits, capital punishment and legislative pay raises. No one listened. And then that same crowd made very sure no one knew how we felt about gay marriage.

So what’s beautiful about tomorrow is that they are finally going to have to listen to us as one of their own asks for our support.

And that makes this a certainty: When the totals are announced, we will have gotten exactly what we deserved.

Democrat’s face possible lawsuit from UPS?
Posted by Dan in Politics
UPS is hopping mad at the Massachusetts Democrat Party.

The Massachusetts Democratic Party apparently doesn’t have anyone on staff that has a clear understanding of trademarks, or for that matter, the obvious. They recently sent out a flyer depicting Senatorial candidate Scott Brown as a UPS driver and asks, “What can Brown do to you?” In the flyer, Scott Brown is dressed up as a UPS driver and the flyer then says, “He can reward corporations that ship your job overseas just like George W. Bush.”

From the Boston Herald:

“Our legal team sent the Massachusetts Democratic Party an e-mail today,” company spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg said yesterday. “As part of ongoing UPS brand protection, we asked that no further copies be distributed.”

As of late yesterday, Rosenberg said UPS had not received a response. The Massachusetts Democratic Party did not respond to a message left at its headquarters in Boston by the Herald.

Stupid Ad that Dems thought was a good idea.

Scott Brown Surges Ahead by 4% Lead!!!!!

Just received in my Inbox!!!!! Please donate. You can make a difference!!!

The people in Massachusetts have awakened from their long slumber!!!


It is with great excitement that we are passing on to you this breaking news development from Massachusetts where a brand new poll has Republican Scott Brown surging to a 4% lead in the polls for the Special Election for U.S. Senate.

Scott Brown now leads liberal Democrat Martha Coakley by a 50%-46% margin. This is the first time Brown has hit the magical threshold of 50% in a poll, suggesting he has the momentum to win this race in this heavily Democratic state!

The Democrats are in a state of panic and have just dumped even more money into this race. We here at the Tea Party Express are countering with our own TV ad campaign for Scott Brown that is running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars - thanks to your support.

Tomorrow we are expanding our ad buy even more - and we need your support. The final deadlines for us to purchase advertising is the end of the day Friday, and then one last time for the end of the day Monday. This is it, there are no more tomorrow's - we must make our final push now!

You can make a contribution to our campaign effort for Scott Brown - HERE.

We must take action, for if we can pull out a victory, we stop the Democrats dead in their tracks in their effort to secretly ram through their socialistic healthcare plan.

That's because Scott Brown wholeheartedly opposes the Democrat's government-run healthcare plan and has made his opposition to it a central part of his campaign.

Pentagon Report on Fort Hood Shooting Details Failures

Published: January 15, 2010

WASHINGTON — The military’s defenses against threats from inside its own ranks are outdated and ineffective, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said on Monday as he described the findings of an Army review of the Nov. 5 shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas.

Mr. Gates cited significant failings to communicate about internal threats to the security of personnel, as well as a lack of supervision over Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the military psychiatrist accused of the shootings. Major Hasan behaved erratically and had questionable communications with a radical cleric during the years and months before the shootings, which killed 13 and injured 28 more.

Several officers may be held accountable for failures in supervising Major Hasan during his psychiatric training in the Washington area, Mr. Gates said.

At a Pentagon news conference on Friday, Mr. Gates referred the recommendations to the Army for further review. He did not provide details, but the Associated Press said that as many as eight mid-ranking officers could face reprimands.

The preliminary review was conducted by Togo West, a former Secretary of the Army, and Adm. Vern Clark, a former Chief of Naval Operations.

“It is clear that, as a department, we have not done enough to adapt to the evolving domestic internal security threat to American troops and military facilities that has emerged over the past decade,” Mr. Gates said.

The finding is the latest signal that the government has not achieved the smooth communications and agility among intelligence agencies that has been sought ever since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Underwear Bomber not the only one with troublesome briefs

Exclusive: Obama Got Pre-Christmas Intelligence Briefing About Terror Threats to 'Homeland'

Mark Hosenball

President Obama received a high-level briefing only three days before Christmas about possible holiday-period terrorist threats against the U.S., NEWSWEEK has learned. The briefing was centered on a written report, produced by U.S. intelligence agencies, titled "Key Homeland Threats," a senior U.S. official says.

The administration official, who asked for anonymity when discussing sensitive information, says that nowhere in this document was there any mention of Yemen, whose
affiliate of Al Qaeda is now believed to have been behind the Christmas Day attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to bring down a transatlantic airliner with a bomb hidden in his underpants. However, the official declined to disclose any other information about the substance of the briefing, including what kind of specific warnings, if any, the president was given about possible holiday attacks and whether Yemen came up during oral discussions.

According to the official, the holiday threat briefing—one in a series of regularly scheduled sessions with top counterterrorism officials
was held in the White House Situation Room on Dec. 22. Present were representatives of agencies involved in counterterrorism policy and operations, including Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and FBI Director Robert Mueller. The CIA and the national intelligence director's office were represented by deputy agency heads: CIA deputy director Steven Kappes and David Gompert, the principal deputy to national intelligence czar Dennis Blair. Also present was Michael Leiter, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, a unit of the intelligence czar's office that was created after 9/11 to ensure that intelligence reporting about possible terrorist plots was shared quickly among all U.S. agencies that might have some capability to do something about it.
