Hymn Week on Issues, Etc.

If you’ve never had the chance to listen to great talk radio that is Christ-Centered Cross-Focused listen this upcoming week.

During the week of August 9, Issues Etc. will be studying the five favorite hymns of “Issues, Etc.” listeners.  Monday, 8/9 – “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less” with Rev. Bill Cwirla, Tuesday, 8/10 – “The Church’s One Foundation” with Dr. Arthur Just, Wednesday, 8/11 – “Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart” with Rev. Paul McCain, Thursday, 8/12 – “Thy Strong Word” with Dr. Arthur Just and Friday, 8/13 – “God‘s Own Child I Gladly Say It” with Rev. Wil Weedon.  Listen live from 4-5 p.m. CDT or on-demand at www.issuesetc.org. (Source: Weedon’s Blog)

Here in Wisconsin I have to listen live on the website (nearly impossible with my work travel) or on-demand.  It’s been a while so I have to find a way to
get back in the swing somehow.

Is Herman Cain Obama’s “worst nightmare”?

He could be President Obama‘s worst nightmare – a business mastermind, a natural problem solver and a black man of “substance” who says he would “take the race card off the table” in a challenge against Obama as the GOP presidential candidate in 2012.

“We need a realistic candidate to run on the Republican ticket who can beat Barack Obama – not just beat the Democrats,” Herman Cain, an Atlanta radio talk-show host, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and 2004 Senate seeker, told WND. “We’ve also got to beat Barack Obama.”

He added, “Obama is a master of rhetoric. He is a master of deceptive language. And any white candidate who runs against him will be up against the race card. I take the race card off the table.”

Nicknamed “The Hermanator,” Cain has more than 17,000 fans of his Facebook page, 5,000 Twitter fans and 45,000 members in his Intelligent Thinkers Movement. He is urging supporters to sign up for his political action committee and help raise funds for conservative candidates for the 2010 election. He said support for that effort will help him gauge his backing for a 2012 bid.

“If I can get that kind of encouragement in trying to change Congress, it will be great encouragement in terms of possibly helping me make that decision as to whether or not I can do this,” he said. “We’re developing a ground game all over this country. We’ll have a way to mobilize all of those people.”

One thing “The Hermanator” isn’t afraid of is calling President Obama’s policies what they are.

One of the biggest challenges for the GOP and conservative candidates in the 2010 and 2012 elections, he explained, will be to “educate the public on what has truly happened in the first two years of this administration and this Congress.”

“One of the tactics of the left is the assumption that 50 percent of the American public is clueless and makes all of its decisions based on sound bites and pretty speeches,” he explained. “They’re right. The biggest challenge for the GOP and conservatives will be to educate people. This is why the left is trying to demagogue talk radio, Fox News and WorldNetDaily.”

He said Obama’s supporters don’t want people to know the truth or challenge the administration’s policies. Rather, they seek to silence their opposition.

“People really must be aware of what has happened, what’s going on and the true motivation of this Congress and this president,” he said. “The true motivation of this Congress and this president is to change this country from a free-market capitalistic system to a socialized system moving toward communism.

“Yes, I said it!

“They criticize me when I start using the ‘S’ word, so you know they’re calling me all kinds of names when I start talking about communism. That’s exactly where this is headed. If you make the economy and the misery bad enough, this is how you get to socialism and communism. You’ll have enough people who are so desperate for help, that the government at the time can get people behind any kind of crazy ideas.” (Source: World Net Daily)

The 2012 election could become very interesting.

Hard hitting questions …

that the local paper won’t ask but BerryLaker will when it comes to Steve Kagen & the new VA facility.

You can find the local paper’s puff pieces here, here and here.

Now some hard hitting questions from BerryLaker.

First on the odd location.

One, why University Avenue? Why not East Mason east of I 43? Why not off of Packerland Drive? Why not the west side of Green Bay? Why not Little Chute along HWY 41? How about Appleton? If you look at the 8th district, the heavy population areas are the Fox Valley. Who made the decision? Doesn’t it seem odd they are building off of University?

Second, who owns the private land on University?

Is this just Kagen’s photo op for his re election bid? Is this or will this be a pay back for campaign donations?

Who did the VA officials talk to and how many sites did they look at?

Second on the changing numbers.

We go from 15,000 in yesterdays article to now 20,000 vet’s served at this facility. Everything keeps changing. Were talking government here people.

Third on Kagen’s motive.

So is Steve Kagen is saying Mark Green started this project? Going for the republican vote? Will he say that in upcoming campaign ads?

Let’s add a few more questions.

$60 million for a 2-story outpatient clinic and surgery center?  Why such a high cost for something that’s only going to make the 25-acres worth $40 million?  And is it really only going to be $60 million – it is a government project after all.

What happens if the federal government can’t make the lease payments as a result of all the massive debt being accumulated by Kagen and his budddies in Washington?  How much will those lease payments be?

Are numbers being fudged when it comes to employment?  One article says 150 – 200, another says more than 200.

Lots of questions and few answers.

As BerryLaker points out perhaps it’s time to follow the money – will the local media do that or will it be up to the blogosphere and talk radio?

Jerry Bader suspended

Green Bay talk show host Jerry Bader has been suspended by Midwest Communications.

WTAQ talk show host Jerry Bader has been suspended for the next two weeks. General Manager Duke Wright made the announcement Thursday morning. Bader is suspended for an online story this week on Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton and her reasons for dropping out of the gubenatorial campaign that has since been retracted. A decision on his future with WTAQ will come then. For now, comments and opinions can be shared by calling 435-3771, extension 2027. (Source: WTAQ)

Why?  Where’s the explanation from Midwest Communications as to why this decision has been made?  Is there intimidation coming from liberals who want to silence a “conservative” voice?

I’m not saying Jerry didn’t make a mistake going with the report as he did.    But that being said I have to agree with Kevin over at Lakeshore Laments.

I seriously believe he had the facts to back up his report when he posted it.

The severity of the action taken by Midwest Communications is questionable and points as well to a double standard if in fact there is pressure coming from liberals behind the scenes.

The liberal MSM reports rumors, innuendos and misinformation about conservative politicians on an almost daily basis.  Are they suspended or placed under “status review”?  Do they issue retractions and apologies the way Jerry did when he found out his sources gave him “bogus” information?

The answer is NO!

Midwest Communications needs to show that it has a backbone and not give into those who want to silence “conservative” talk radio.  In other words keep Jerry Bader on the air!
