Michael Steele

Praise God. I hope Michael Steele does well, and I hope he speaks often about the targeted, concerted, and not-so-subtly racist efforts of the abortion industry to decimate the black population.

Will there be accolades from prominent Democrats and the MSM for the first black RNC Chair? Were there for the first black Supreme Court Justice 20 years ago? How about the first black Secretary of State more recently?

Or, as Clarence Thomas would say, are these all the "wrong kind" of black people? Will they still be punished for not falling into line where they belong?

Don't you think it would be fitting for President Obama himself to issue a congratulatory statement? Shouldn't he applaud the Right for being as colorblind as the Left? Doesn't he, and Sharpton and Jackson while we're at it, owe it to Mr. Steele and to the entire black community to at least acknowledge this accomplishment? Aren't they all about integration, after all?

I predict that if Obama doesn't congratulate Steele, the first white conservative who criticizes him for it will be branded a fool and a racist.

(I will soon comment further on Thomas' book which I recently finished reading.)

FYI, might want to listen to my exclusive interview with Michael Steele and comment. Thanks. JL.

And forget, please, "conservatism," please. It will not “save” us because it has been, operationally, de facto, Godless and therefore irrelevant. Secular conservatism will not defeat secular liberalism because to God both are two atheistic peas-in-a-pod and thus predestined to failure. As Stonewall Jackson's Chief of Staff R.L. Dabney said of such a humanistic belief more than 100 years ago:

"[Secular conservatism] is a party which never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today .one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution; to be denounced and then adopted in its turn. American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt bath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing serious for the sake of the truth."

Our country is collapsing because we have turned our back on God (Psalm 9:17) and refused to kiss His Son (Psalm 2).
