A roadmap for American renewal ~Star Parker 2 books to read in this Summer of Discontent

Dear Friend of CURE,

Here's Star Parker's weekly column. Hope you can take the time to read it.

A roadmap for American renewal

Is the role of government to protect life, liberty, and property? Or is the role of government, in the words of President Obama, "redistributive change"?

A note from Star Parker
Star Parker, founder and president of CURE
The anti-political establishment sentiment that is gripping the country reflects something more basic that is going on.  What we have is a national renewal movement - a search and discovery mission by Americans to restate and restore those first principles that define us.

And, indeed, part of what is bothering so many is a sense that we are now in our current mess because of wholesale loss of appreciation that we even have first principles that uniquely define us, let alone understanding what they are.

Now we have a new book that will serve as an invaluable resource and operating manual in this national struggle to "bring back America."

"The Blueprint: Obama's Plan to Subvert the Constitution and Build an Imperial Presidency", by Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski, provides comprehensive chapter and verse of what we need to understand and what we can do about the challenges we're now confronting.

Blackwell is currently a senior fellow at the Family Research Council (and a longtime conservative friend and colleague of mine) and Klukowski is a constitutional lawyer and journalist.   

Blackwell and Klukowski provide one stop shopping for understanding the philosophic departure of our current administration from traditional American principles, identification of each key battlefront where they are changing the country, and what, in each case, we can do about it.

American history, of course, has never been defined by smooth and tranquil sailing.  

Life itself, and certainly life lived in freedom, is a daily struggle.  Our only choices are the battles we choose to fight.

What so uniquely defines today's times and struggles is the extent to which they are about core principles.  Yes, of course, we're battling daily on policy.   Health care, energy, environment, financial services, etc.

But our differences on these questions reflect more profound differences about what defines us as a nation.

Is the role of government to protect life, liberty, and property?  Or is the role of government, in the words of President Obama, "redistributive change"?

It is unprecedented in our nation's history that legislation of the size and scope of the recent health care bill, that will cost trillions of dollars, that will restructure one sixth of our economy and impact even more, passed with effectively zero support from the opposition party.

This is not because of political calculation, as the President suggested the other day. "Before I was even inaugurated congressional leaders of the other party got together and made a calculation that if I failed, they'd win."

You don't have to be a constitutional lawyer to sense there's a problem in America when the federal government defines to the last detail what a health insurance policy must look like and then forces every citizen to buy one.

Blackwell and Klukowski show that the departure point defining American exceptionalism is a nation rooted in God-given first truths and our constitution that defines a federal government, with limited and enumerated powers, that preserves and secures those truths.

Our president sees things differently.  Rather than a nation of men who live by laws, he sees us as a nation of men who enact laws to implement particular agendas of what they deem to be fair and just.

Under this leadership, we've started up the path of becoming a social welfare state rather than the free nation under God that our founders envisioned.

As result, we're now seeing unprecedented government expansion and intrusion into our private lives.  And the bills that are piling up to pay for this new socialism are strangling us blue.

How it's all playing out in health care, education, our courts, our media, how we do the census, and how we vote, is laid out clearly and chillingly in this powerful book.

Blackwell and Klukowski have given us a roadmap back to freedom, morality, and prosperity.
This is an important read during this summer of American discontent.

Elections official hits TV to affirm no Hawaii birth-WND



Elections official hits TV to affirm no Hawaii birth
In direct contradiction of the White House storyline, the former Honolulu elections official who caused a national stir this month when he told WND Barack Obama was "definitely" not born in Hawaii, and that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate even exists for the president in the Aloha State is now reaffirming those claims to a network television affiliate.

The New Yorker-Is the wayward Republican Mike Huckabee now his party’s best hope?

The Political Scene

Prodigal Son

Is the wayward Republican Mike Huckabee now his party's best hope?

by Ariel Levy June 28, 2010

Sun was bouncing off the miles of Jerusalem stone and the black hats of the Hasidim on the afternoon when Mike Huckabee went to visit the Wailing Wall, earlier this year. Huckabee—the former governor of Arkansas, the host of a Fox News show, and, according to the most recent Rasmussen poll, the top pick among likely Republican primary voters for President in 2012—was making his fourteenth trip to Israel. This time, he was leading a group of a hundred and sixty evangelicals on a tour of Christian holy sites with the singer Pat Boone. Huckabee wore mirrored Ray-Bans and a polka-dot shirt with gold cufflinks in the shape of Arkansas. Boone, who is seventy-six and still keeps his hair strawberry blond, was in a light-blue leisure suit and white bucks. Both men were wearing yarmulkes. "I think what I should do is convert," Huckabee said, squinting in the sunshine. "This covers my bald spot completely."

Huckabee was a Baptist minister before he went into politics, but, like Boone and most of the other people in their group, he is crazy about Israel and extremely enthusiastic about Jews. "I worship a Jew!" Huckabee said. "I have a lot of Jewish friends, and they're kind of, like, 'You evangelicals love Israel more than we do.' I'm, like, 'Do you not get it? If there weren't a Jewish faith, there wouldn't be a Christian faith!' " In recent weeks, Huckabee has defended the Israeli attack on a Turkish flotilla headed for Gaza, in which nine people were killed. He does not support a two-state solution, or, at least, as he told numerous reporters in the course of the trip, "not on the same piece of real estate"—which is to say he thinks that coming up with a place for the Palestinians ought to be an Arab problem. In fact, Huckabee does not believe that Palestinian is a legitimate nationality. "I have to be careful saying this, because people get really upset—there's really no such thing as a Palestinian," Huckabee told a rabbi in Wellesley, Massachusetts, at a kosher breakfast on the campaign trail in 2008. "That's been a political tool to try to force land away from Israel." In a speech to the Knesset on our trip, Huckabee said, "I promise you, you do not have a better friend on earth than Christians around the world, who know where we have come from and know who we must remain allies and friends with." The members of his tour group who were seated in the audience applauded vigorously; several rose to their feet and shouted, "Amen!" ...
