The Citizen--Kansas City's Conservative Newspaper!

Kansas City is finally going to have a Conservative Newspaper! Below is a description of what its going to be about:
Our mission

The Citizen provides news, opinion and a voice for readers committed to liberty and freedom.

* We are a much-needed balance to the regional media landscape and a provocateur. We are not passive — nor should you be.

* We think for ourselves and understand that independence carries responsibility — to help create a more educated, more active civic conversation. We want our readers to read, to learn, and, ultimately, to act.

* Finally, we report using all the facts available, but we don’t stop there. We intend to motivate our readers and our elected officials to action. We are in this to change things.

So, what is The Citizen?

We're a new monthly newspaper for the Kansas City metro area. We're planning our first issue in February, but you can have a peek right now.

Are we biased? Yes -- just like every other newspaper and magazine. Are we different? Yes -- because we're not afraid to admit that things like a love of freedom and a belief in personal responsibility matter, and they inform what we choose to cover.

We'll be free to readers and ad-supported.
I am excited about it for numerous reasons, but also because I'm going to be writing for it! My monthly column is under the "Faith and Family" category, but those who know me, know it will encompass much more than that.

Check out the facebook page, the website will be finished soon, and follow on Twitter.

Friday Smorgasbord!

Mike's America is hosting a Reagan Centennial Celebration! 
I am excited about celebrating and remembering the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth!  So, join in by sharing your memories about Reagan.

Obama not responding well to Egypt Crisis...
Now, there are indications the administration’s effort to play global politics to its advantage by soft-pedaling Egypt's abuses could be backfiring. The Times story notes: “This balancing of private pressure with strong public support for Mr. Mubarak has become increasingly tenuous in recent days.”

Increasingly, the administration is coming under criticism for first appearing to,encourage pro-democracy movements that it now seems very reticent to embrace. The clash over human rights also appears to be on the verge of triggering a political clash in the United States: Republicans well remember the tepid White House response to the crackdown on protesters following fraudulent elections in Iran in 2009. Republicans complained that President Barack Obama’s response was too timid.
The incredibly, brilliant Joe Biden also has weighed in saying, "he doesn't consider Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak a dictator."  The Slatest says it best:
The White House may stand behind the protesters in Tunisia, but demonstrators in Egypt haven't gotten the presidential blessing. Appearing on PBS NewHour last night, gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden remarked that he doesn't consider Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak a dictator—despite his 29-year rule—and isn't sure what exactly protesters want. (For the record, its "freedom, democracy, an end to police torture, and a more committed government effort to address" poverty, the Christian Science Monitor says). When asked to describe Mubarak, Biden told host Jim Lehrer that he "has been an ally of ours in a number of things. And he's been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interest in the region, the Middle East peace efforts; the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing relationship with—with Israel. … I would not refer to him as a dictator." The vice president then suggested that the government should work with protesters to discern "what the legitimate claims being made are, if they are, and try to work them out." 
Meghan McCain is a "Poor Man's Ron Reagan"!
Meghan McCain said that Michele Bachmann was a poor man's Sarah Palin.  So, when I heard Laura Ingraham's quote about Meghan on O'Reilly's show, I got a huge smile on my face, so true.
O'Reilly tried to say that McCain was a part of a certain wing of the Republican party.  Ingraham disagreed, and so did I.  Everything she spouts is trashing members of the Republican party and liberal ideals.

Abortion Clinic--House of Horrors!

Abortion Clinic described as House of Horrors
Abortionist, Kermit Gosnell was charged with 8 murders. The abortion clinic hadn't been inspected since 1993. One death was a woman, the others were infants who were viable babies in the sixth, seventh and eighth month of the pregnancy. Gosnell cut the babies' spinal cords with scissors.

Maafa 21's claim of black genocide might not be far off when you look at who went to this clinic--low-income, minorities.

Ron Reagan Jr. is an Embarrassment!

“Ron was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother.”--Michael Reagan
How does one describe Ron Reagan Jr.? Embarrassment, disrespectful, condescending, media-whore, etc... When I first saw that he was coming out with a book critical of his father, I figured it was par for the course since he is an atheist liberal. Yet, when I read an actual excerpt from the book in Parade magazine I was taken aback. I couldn't believe how condescending he was towards his father. It was this whole elitist attitude that he was smarter than his Dad, even though his Dad was president. Unbelievable!! It takes a lot of chutz·pa, but I guess he feels emboldened by his liberal buddies in the media.

Ron claims that his Dad had Alzheimer's while he was still president, never mind that all Reagan's doctors and outside experts disagree. Reagan's sane son, Michael, violently disagrees with Ron, as usual. Michael ripped into Ron for his claims about their Dad's Alzheimer's.

Veronica's Voice Opens Magdalene Manor to Help Women Escape Prostitution!

"I'll never forget the dark pit God reached into and pulled me out of. Even after I was out, my heart still pained for my sisters that were still lost, trapped, tricked, or caught-up in "the life". So I started VERONICA'S Voice to be a light for these wonderful women still surviving in the darkness."

-Kristy Childs - Survivor,
Foundress VERONICA'S Voice
The KC Star reported on the opening of Magdalene Manor and I was encouraged to learn of the ministry to women by Veronica's Voice. Below is an excerpt:
The first residents will move into the house, called Magdalene Manor, at an undisclosed location in Kansas City. The home will augment the existing Veronica’s Voice safe center, where clients receive services and support, Childs said.

Childs believes there is only one other similar residential facility in the country for victims of the commercial sex trade, and Veronica’s Voice is only one of a handful of organizations like it in the country.

The persistent perception that prostitution is a victimless crime is belied by the lives of the 8,000 women and girls she has spoken to since founding Veronica’s Voice in 2000, Childs said.

The organization is named for one of those victims — Veronica Neverdusky — a friend of Childs’ who was 21 in 1993 when she was strangled and dumped in Kansas City’s Penn Valley Park.
Kristy Childs is an inspirational woman and its wonderful to know that Kansas City has a place of refuge for victims of sexual abuse and exploitation.

Arizona Sheriff and Liberals are Shameless!!

The Tucson Shooting that happened this past Saturday, January 8th was a tragedy. Six people lost their lives, 14 were wounded, including Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Yet, Democrats, liberals and the Media have tried to turn this tragedy into a political football with ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE to back up their reckless accusations. Arizona Sheriff Dupnik is leading the charge and is committing the very irresponsible acts that he is accusing Rush and others of. It is infuriating when it is obvious that the Sheriff and others have never listened to Rush or others in talk radio to hear what they actually say.

It is also insanity to link talk show hosts to murder. Especially, since talk show hosts have no control over mentally ill murderers. And especially since the shooter DIDN'T EVEN LISTEN to talk radio and wasn't even a conservative or a Republican. Yet, none of this stopped liberal Democrats rush to judgment.

The Fairness Doctrine is being brought up again (even though it has NOTHING to do with this tragedy). Stricter gun control laws are being talked of again, even though responsible people owning guns stop tragedies like this one. As Rahm Emanuel so eloquently said,
"You Never Want A Serious Crisis To Go To Waste."
At least not when it comes to liberals. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders(D) is even using the tragedy as a chance to fundraise! Does it get more despicable than that?

Sarah Palin: "America's Enduring Strength" from Sarah Palin on Vimeo.

Sarah Palin speaks out since she was drug into the discussion, just like Rush. Yet, she is accused by liberals of making herself a part of the story, UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Christians are praying for peace as millions prepare to vote on independence for southern Sudan on January 9 ~~Samaritan's Purse

Samaritan's Purse along with many other Christian groups are praying for peace for Sudan as millions prepare to vote on independence for southern Sudan on January 9. Here is an excerpt from Samaritan's Purse's website:
Following decades of civil war that claimed more than 2 million lives, the people of southern Sudan may soon declare independence in a historic referendum on January 9. A peaceful vote is critical for the future of Sudan and surrounding nations.

Church leaders from Khartoum to Juba have asked Samaritan’s Purse to help coordinate seven days of prayer, from January 3-9. Believers across Sudan and around the world will be gathering on January 9 for 24 hours of fasting and prayer.

Return to our Hope for Sudan website for daily prayer updates, January 3-9.

God Speaking!

God Speaking!
sung by Ronnie Freeman

Who knows
How He'll get ahold of us?
Get our attention
To prove He is enough
He'll do
And He'll use whatever He wants to
To tell us
"I love You"
