From Darkness to Divahood | Robin of Berkeley

Robin of Berkeley is my favorite (former liberal and now conservative) warrior, honest and exposing Truth…even as she seeks to deepen her understanding of her new Christian faith in God.

I post her often.  I will continue to do so, as her writings continue to emerge.

God bless you Robin.  You are a gift.

This Is for You, Joy Behar! A Woman’s Journey from Liberal to Conservative

By idaflo | October 30th, 2010 | 2 Comments » 

Joy Beharby Jim Lakely  on October 28, 2010

Forgive the indulgence, but my wife sent me the following email today. She had to get this off her chest, in writing, to clear her mind for painting in her studio. And I think it’s a great story: One woman’s decades-long journey from indoctrinated liberal to free-thinking conservative.

These are the kind of women that Joy Behar insulted — and probably enraged, if my wife is any guide  — when she called Nevada Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle “a bitch” who should “go to hell.”

In the spirit of Robin of Berkeley, here is the rest of thisMUST POST and link-to article by Jim Lakely.

And my response follows:

Dear Mr. Lakely,  I believe Joy Behar is an extreme example, just another “hood ornament” for strident liberalism/feminism. Great stuff here, your family is blessed twofold; BOTH of you share a gift for writing. Sets off a storm of thought, since all the information on your wife’s evolution/transformation resonates with my experiences since college. Read More »

Not surprising, but the silence of her peers is shocking.  Are they circling the wagons? Or is it simply a case of  liberal consent?

Explaining the Obama National Security Strategy

By idaflo | May 29th, 2010 | No Comments » 

The Heritage Foundation sums it up, and it is not pretty.  That being said, it best be known.  No wonder the president is not excited about the free exchange of information on the internet...otherwise known as The New Media.  He doesn’t control it.

Explaining the Obama National Security Strategy

Yesterday the White House unveiled its national security strategy. It came in basically three parts.

Part One is the “anything but Bush” part. Where the goal is to put as much distance between Obama and Bush – even where there is not a lot space. Renaming the War on Terrorism, the war on al Qaeda is a case in point. Did the Bush administration not know it was fighting al Qaeda? Did Obama stop doing Predator strikes?

Part Two is an overwhelming desire to substitute soft power for hard power. The problem is that soft power – like diplomacy – is not a substitute for hard power.….(article  continues here)
