For months now, the liberal leaders in the press have blamed Wall Street, the housing industry and capitalism for the financial crisis that has thrown the United States into a deepening recession.
The facts show, however, that it is big government socialism that is really to blame.
In 1977 the Jimmy Carter administration passed the Community Redevelopment Act (CRA) that began to push the housing industry to give low-cost home loans to low-income people, especially minorities.
Then, in the early 1990s, the Clinton administration created new rules for the housing industry through the CRA that relaxed the standards even further, not only for low-income people but for other potential homeowners. Also in the 1990s, the Clinton administration ...
The new TRANSFORMERS sequel, REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, which comes out today, is full of sexual references and foul language that are inappropriate for children or young teenagers, Dr. Ted Baehr, the founder and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE®, has announced.
"We are appalled at all the crude humor and sexual innuendoes in this movie, which is supposed to be based on Hasbro's popular toy franchise for children," Dr. Baehr said. "It is shocking that a movie with such lewd adult content is being promoted with large displays in America's toy stores. Young children are being encouraged to buy these toys and to see this movie."
He advised parents and families not to allow their children or teenagers, especially younger teenagers, to see this movie.

DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS is the third ICE AGE movie made by 20th Century Fox. And, MOVIEGUIDE® got a chance to visit recently with three of the main actors in the new animated adventure comedy, Ray Romano, Queen Latifah and John Leguizamo.
Each time they do the voices for these characters, it gets easier and easier, all three actors said.
“For me this go around was a lot easier,” Queen Latifah said. “It was hard at first. Sometimes I’m coming in and my voice is kind of hoarse (from signing the night before). Ellie [her character] is sweet. She’s fun, and she’s nurturing. She grows so much between the last film and this one. She’s a little more mature. She’s always trying to push people together.”
A new study showing that the number of dirty words in movies has decreased about 50% in the last 25 years since MOVIEGUIDE® began publishing shows that MOVIEGUIDE®'s strategy of influencing Hollywood executives is working.
The study of foul language in G, PG and PG-13 movies by three Brigham Young University professors shows that the 1980s movies analyzed averaged 35 obscenities or profanities per movie, decreasing to 25 per movie in the 1990s, down to 16 per movie in the current decade!!!
The researchers only looked at movies featuring teenage characters or that had plots revolving around teenagers.
Their database included such movies as the SPIDER-MAN and HARRY POTTER flicks, BACK TO THE FUTURE, KARATE KID, CASPER, CLUELESS, HONEY I ...
The BBC, Great Britain's government run TV network, apparently has an ongoing policy to knock Christians and their faith while treating Islam and its followers with kid gloves.
BBC executives admitted in 2006 they would consider televising a scene where the Bible is thrown away but would never do the same thing with Islam's Koran. They also recently broadcast a show where a Christian fanatic beheaded a "moderate" Muslim, when the exact opposite is what has actually been happening in the real world!
"A Martian watching TV drama of late would probably conclude that the country is crawling with homicidal Islamophobes," a TV reviewer wrote.
Says Dr. John Sentamu, Christian Archbishop of York, "They can do to us what they dare not do to the M...
Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz recently accused President Obama of "creating a climate of hate" against Jews by his recent actions and speeches.
Not only did Obama irrationally compare the Holocaust murder of six million Jews with Israel's actions in dealing with so-called "Palestinians" in a recent speech to Arabs and Muslims, but he also whitewashed the violent, warlike history of the false Muslim "prophet" Mohammed and his brutal descendents.
Pomerantz also noted that Obama did not mention the brutal oppression of women in Arab and Muslim countries. Nor did he mention the fact that "Arab Muslims were the greatest slave traders in the history of humanity."
In fact, reports from Africa show that Muslims are still practicing slavery even...
President Obama signed a proclamation on June 1 supporting the neo-fascist, homosexual indoctrination of Americans, including young children, and the oppression of those who do not agree with the radical homosexual agenda, including the campaigns for civil unions and sae0-sex marriage.
In Proclamation 8387, which can be found on the Internet at http://www.thefederalregister.com/d.p/2009-06-04-E9-13281, Obama writes:
"My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. The...
The facts of history show that Christianity has played the major role in securing people's rights and liberty in Great Britain, Europe, Japan, South Korea, the former Soviet Union, parts of the Middle East, and the United States.
Throughout history, Christian leaders in Great Britain, the United States, Continental Europe, Asia, India, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Australia not only have led the way in securing our political, religious and economic rights and liberty, but also have led the way in providing charity to the poor and needy, including healthcare.
This shows that we don't need government programs to make the world a better place. All we need is a bigger commitment to faith in Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Individu...
