Video: Jason Chaffetz gives update on Fast and Furious

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) appeared on Fox News today to give an update on the Fast and Furious investigation. Though he did say that Attorney General Eric Holder may be held in contempt, we're still left wondering when that is going to happen. Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer didn't ask that question but did bring up the fact that an increasing number of congressmen are calling for Holder's resignation.

Mormons call on Santorum to denounce Pastor

In response to a March 9th press release and subsequent March 12th press conference, Pastor O'Neal Dozier of the World Wide Christian Center in Pompano Beach, FL has generated significant buzz about the Mormon religion, even calling it "racist" while asking Mitt Romney to denounce it. Dozier is also an honorary chairman for the Rick Santorum campaign.

Now, Mormons have fired back and have called on Santorum to denounce Dozier.

Via the San Francisco Chronicle:
MormonVoices today called on Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum to condemn the anti-Mormon comments made by his supporter, and honorary Florida Chairman, Reverend O'Neal Dozier. The New York Daily News and multiple other media outlets have reported that Dozier proclaimed that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly referred to as the Mormon Church, is racist and said that the Church "is prejudiced against Blacks, Jews and the Native American Indians." He therefore demanded that Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney publicly "renounce his racist Mormon Religion." He claims that in so doing, he hopes "to foster and maintain good race relations here in America."
Here is the text of the press release Dozier issued on March 9th:
Dear Pastors and Friends:

You are invited to attend a new/press conference on Monday, March 12, 2012 at 11:00a.m. at The Worldwide Christian Center Church, located at 450 North Powerline Road, Pompano Beach, Florida, 33069.  The purpose of the news/press conference is to publicly ask Republican Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney to openly renounce his racist Mormon religion.  We believe that this will help to foster and maintain good race relations here in America.  Gov. Mitt Romney is not a casual Mormon Church attendee.  His position in the Mormon Church is higher than a Bishop.  He holds the position of a “stake” which presides over twelve (12) Mormon churches.  Yes, Gov. Mitt Romney is one of the heads of the Mormon Church.  The following are just a few of the numerous racist teachings of the Mormon Church:

The Mormon religion is prejudiced against Blacks, Jews and the Native American Indians. These allegations are substantiated and validated by the writings of the former Prophets and Seers of the Mormon Church. The Mormon Church says that the Book of Mormon is “the most correct book, even more correct than the Bible.” The Book of Mormon in 2nd Nephi, Chapters 5:21-23 accuses God of cursing African people and causing them to have black skin in order for them not to be attractive to white people. These verses also accuse God of causing the black African people to be disgusting and detestable to white people. Furthermore, these verses accuse God of being against inter-racial marriages between blacks and whites. The Mormon Prophet, Brigham Young in the (Mormon) Journal of Discourses further degrades black African people by saying that they are uncultured, unattractive, unpleasant, low-life, wild and unintelligent. Prophet Brigham Young further states that “if the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain (black person) the penalty under the Law of God is death on the spot.” Also, according to Mormon Doctrine, Native American Indians were also of the class of the cursed because their skin was also a darker color. Both Alma 3:6 and Mormon 5:15 of the Book of Mormon degrade the Lamanites, which are the Native American Indians in the same way they do black African people. The Mormon Church is also prejudiced against the Jews. In the (Mormon) Journal of Discourses, the Mormon Prophet, Brigham Young railed against the Jews in a very hateful way when he said, “I would rather undertake to convert five thousand Lamanites (Native American Indians), than to convert one of those poor miserable creatures (Jews) whose fathers killed the Savior… yes, I would rather undertake to CONVERT THE DEVIL HIMSELF, if it were possible… I would say, leave them and come home, the Lord does not require you to stay there, for they must suffer and be damned…leave them to live and die in their sins and ignorance…they take pleasure in their wickedness… (Mormon Journal of Discourses).

Also, it is newsworthy to mention that the Mormon Church has a bizarre Mormon practice that involves posthumously baptizing Non-Mormons by proxy. According to Helen Radkey, a former Mormon, both Adolf Hitler and Ted Bundy were baptized at Mormonism’s ground zero-Utah in 1993 and 2008 respectively. -In fact, Radkey reported that the Mormon Church attempted to conceal the Hitler baptism. Helen Radkey also claims that the Mormon Church has posthumously baptized Holocaust victims, serial killers, 9/11 hijackers, Muslim terrorists, etc.

Because of the aforementioned facts, we believe that a Romney Presidential nomination for the Republican Party would widen the racial divide to a point of no return, because the Republican Party would be viewed as a racist political party. Romney’s nomination would cause the erroneous view that has long existed in the minds of black people, that the Republican Party is prejudice to become a reality. Also, if Romney gets the nomination, President Obama’s super pacs will educate the American people about his racist religion and he will probably lose to Obama.

Please come out and be on time.  We will start promptly at 11:00am.  If further information is needed, please feel free to call me at (754)366-3392 or (954)987-2020.  Please circulate within your circle.
Again, as I've written here, here, and here, if Romney is the Republican nominee, the mainstream media will be far worse in its attacks on Mormonism than Dozier is now.

First Crack in Democrats' Unified Front on Fast and Furious?

A spokesman for Rep. Dan Boren (D-OK) was asked if the congressman still has confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder in light of the fallout from the Fast and Furious investigation. The required answer of all Democrats is, "absolutely." However, that wasn't the response from Boren's office.

Via Daily Caller:
Oklahoma Democratic Rep. Dan Boren won’t say if he supports Attorney General Eric Holder amid a surge in the number of House members who have demanded Holder’s resign over Operation Fast and Furious.

A spokesperson for Boren, a conservative Democrat who is a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, said the congressman had “no comment” on whether he still has confidence in Holder.

This is the first time a Democrat has openly refused to support Holder as 120 congressmen, three senators, two sitting governors and all major GOP presidential candidates demand his resignation.
The prospect of defending Holder on this issue, in an election year, does not bode well for House Democrats, especially the blue dogs who found themselves on thin ice after supporting Obamacare in 2010. If Fast and Furious becomes an issue in the election (less likely if Romney the nominee), Democrats may be less willing to fall on the sword for Obama than they were leading up to the midterms two years ago.

If your congressman is a Democrat - especially a blue dog - and find out why he/she has not called for Holder's resignation.

Video: Tea Party Nation Founder calls out John Boehner on Fast and Furious

Actually, Judson Phillips doesn't just call out John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy for not being aggressive enough in the Fast and Furious investigation; he provides some insight into why Boehner may be reticent to see this thing move forward. If there has been any truth to rumors that the House Speaker wants Issa to back off, Phillips provides the best possible answer as to why.

Note how he says during this interview that his sources inside Washington, D.C. said that if Boehner learned anything as a congressman during the Clinton administration, it was to "not pick a fight with the president." Phillips then rightly and rhetorically asks: If that's true, what is Boehner doing there?

Via MediaIte:

Explains a lot, doesn't it? Does this look like a man who's willing to pick a fight with anyone?

Mormons Baptized Jesus: MSM will hit Romney with it if he's the Nominee

Mormons have baptized Hitler, Anne Frank, and Ted Bundy. They've also baptized Jesus. Anyone who thinks the Mainstream media won't go after Romney about these things if he is the nominee is fooling themselves. In fact, expect a daily onslaught. In my latest column over at Red County, I take a look at what the MSM's approach might look like while factoring in the Mormon Church's baptism of Jesus.

If conservaties don't vet Romney's religion, liberals will.
Will Mainstream Media ask Romney why Mormons Baptized Jesus?

In the last presidential campaign, the peek inside Obama's church came courtesy of the Trinity United Church of Christ's DVDs. They revealed an anti-Semitic pastor whose brand of Christianity was rightly questioned. In 2012, the peek inside Mitt Romney's church will come courtesy of people like Helen Radkey, a former Mormon herself who has uncovered the names of individuals who have been posthumously baptized as Mormons. The mainstream media has already reported on Anne Frank being baptized nine times.

There are many, many more.

In 2008, conservative media pundits declared the death of journalism, in part, because the mainstream media outlets wouldn't vet Barack Obama's Church, its pastor Jeremiah Wright, or Black Liberation Theology in general. Today, those same conservative media pundits don't seem to be aware that the mainstream media will vet and smear Mitt Romney's religion if he is the nominee. MSNBC, CNN, and the New York Times – among others – have already sent up trial balloons.

If conservatives thought the mainstream media should have questioned Obama's brand of Christianity, aren't liberal pundits likely to outwardly question why those conservatives aren't questioning Romney's brand? After all, according to Radkey's findings, the man whom Christians believe is the Son of the Living God, who rose from the dead and now sits at the right hand of the Father, has been baptized multiple times by Mormons, as recently as 2010.

According to Radkey: 
LDS Church officials have publicly stated that the New FamilySearch program is a technological deterrent to improper submissions. Yet—under their very noses—on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Jesus Christ—under a false name—two millennia after his birth, was offered Mormon salvation and an erroneous eternal marriage sealing.

Sometime late in the day on May 27, 2010, the individual entries for “Jesus Cristian” and “Maria Magdelena” were scrubbed from New FamilySearch—concealing the evidence that LDS rites had recently been performed for these two names in the Salt Lake Temple. The sudden disappearance of these records is a strong indication that “Jesus Cristian” and “Maria Magdelena” represent Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.

The conservative pundits in 2008 begged the mainstream media to see the relevance of Obama's relationship with Wright. Odds are very good that if Romney gets the nomination, those same conservatives will cry foul when the mainstream media questions his Christian bonafides by pointing to the multiple Mormon baptisms of Jesus.

I can hear it now...

Wolf Blitzer: Governor Romney, many have raised concerns about the overwhelming number of deceased non-Mormons who have been posthumously baptized into the Mormon faith. Are you concerned about having to explain to evangelical voters why your church has multiple records of your members baptizing Jesus, like the ones I'm holding in my hand?

Mitt Romney: Wolf, those baptisms are the work of rogue members who have axes to grind against the church. Those things certainly don't represent my beliefs or the beliefs of the Mormon Church.

Blizter: How about the baptisms of Adolf Hitler, Ted Bundy, Anne Frank, and at least one of the 9/11 hijackers, as well as hundreds of thousands of Holocaust victims? Isn't that going to hurt you among Jewish voters?

Romney: Wolf, again...

Blitzer: Aren't you a Mormon leader who presides over multiple Mormon churches? Have these people been disciplined or excommunicated? Do you know? Why do these records indicate that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene? Do you believe that? Are you willing to denounce the Mormon church over this?

Romney: Wolf, let me just say that...

Blitzer: When did you stop beating your wife?

Romney: Uh, what?

Blitzer: Thanks for joining us, Governor. Good luck in the campaign.

Yes, I exaggerated to illustrate a point; the mainstream media is an entity that is overtly working toward Obama's reelection and knows this is a weakness for Romney.

In a New York Times article on Romney last fall, his leadership in the Mormon church was a central focus.

According to the Times, Romney was a prominent leader from 1981 through 1994 and served as the equivalent of a bishop over a Catholic diocese.

Here is an excerpt from that article:

Mr. Romney declined to be interviewed for this article. Facing a primary electorate in which Christian conservatives are a powerful force, he is trying to keep his religion from becoming a barrier to his election. When his faith has become an issue — a Texas pastor supporting a rival candidate recently proclaimed Mormonism “a cult” — Mr. Romney has not offered a full-throated defense, but instead called for civility.

A couple of months later, while appearing on the O'Reilly Factor, Romney was asked by the Fox News host if he would call Obama a socialist. Romney refused to do so. Earlier this month, Romney insisted that he would not “say outrageous things about the president.”

Perhaps this provides a look into why Romney is more than willing to attack his Republican counterparts but not Obama. He knows they won't go after him about his religion. What he doesn't seem to know is that the Obama media will and it doesn't matter how civil Romney is. In fact, the left sees civility as weakness.

Romney appears to be counting on the Obama media playing nice if he does. That is a losing strategy.

Just ask John McCain.

Then again, he's endorsed Romney so he still doesn't get it.
