Tired of Obama, health care, gun bans, spending?

Tired of federal mandates on issues such as health care? Concerned about the nation’s future with an aggressive White House agenda to ban guns? Worried about the constant rampant spending on phantom projects? Just plain tired of Barack Obama’s idea of America?

There’s a conference coming – studded with high-profile speakers such as Monica Crowley, John O’Sullivan, Phyllis Schlafly and Marshall Teague – that’s just for you. It will teach you how to engage in the political and social battles, and organizers say it will teach you to come out the victor.

Hosted by the Constitution Coalition, events at the Educational Policy Conference are scheduled Jan. 24-26 at the Hilton in St. Louis, and organizer Donna Hearne told WND the issue isn’t complicated, and those who are familiar with America’s founders, founding documents and history already know all about it.

It’s that America as a nation was set up and intended for a “moral people.”

But now, she said, “America is facing a poverty of information on our founding principles, so severe that it threatens the future of freedom.”

General information about the conference is on the website, but for attendance plans, please call 636-386-1789.

Gay Rights Activists Storm Values Voter Summit

Several gay rights protesters stormed the Washington, D.C. hotel hosting the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Saturday, shouting, “Your values are killing us!”

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had just concluded his speech in the ballroom when roughly six protesters unraveled a large rainbow-colored American flag outside in the lobby and began chanting. Almost immediately several security guards grabbed the protesters to drag them outside. One protester in particular resisted, causing him and some of the security guards to fall to the floor.

TheBlaze spoke with one of the activists afterward who identified himself as Charles Butler with the gay rights organization Get Equal.

“The first guy put me in a headlock and I was losing consciousness. That’s why I fell the first time,” Butler said.

Asked whether he felt Get Equal had accomplished anything, Butler said, “I think it’s too early to tell. … We‘re trying to call into question the organizers of this summit’s values and how they affect LGBT people,” he said. LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.

“A lot of people don’t know about all of the stuff [Family Research Council President] Tony Perkins says about us. Calling us pedophiles,” Butler said, referring to a 2010 interview in which Perkins called pedophilia a “homosexual problem.”

THUGS NEED ONLY TO CALL U.S. AN OPPRESSOR AND OBAMA ‘WILL SYMPATHIZE WITH YOU’

Former Republican presidential candidate and Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum ripped President Barack Obama on Wednesday during an appearance on the “Scott Hennen Show.” In a moment of candid discussion about this week’s events in the Middle East, the politician lambasted Obama‘s handling of situations that involve America’s foes.

“If you’re a thug, you need to just wrap yourself in victimhood and call the United States an oppressor and this president will sympathize with you,” Santorum said.

Santorum: ‘Damn right’ we cling to guns & religion

Campaigning in front of the courthouse in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum delivered a fiery speech referring to President Obama’s infamous 2008 statement about people “clinging” to their guns and religion.

“Barack Obama four years ago referred to this area of Pennsylvania — right here — as a place that holds on, clings to their guns and their Bibles,” he said according to the New York Times, and added, “You’re damn right we do!”

“You’re right, we cling,” Santorum continued. “We cling to our faith, we cling to the rights that are God-given and are guaranteed under our Constitution, including the right to protect ourselves and those we love with the Second Amendment, the individual right to bear arms.”

Scott Brown Ribs Santorum

“I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have Secret Service with them on the camp trail. And in Santorum’s case, I think it‘s the first time that he’s actually ever used protection,” Brown said, referring to the former Pennsylvania senator’s staunch opposition to birth control.

Kissing Men Escorted Out of Santorum Event, Crowd Chants ‘U-S-A, U-S-A’

Two men were escorted out of a Rick Santorum rally in Illinois as they began to yell during the candidate’s speech, and then kiss one another. The event took place at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights Friday evening. The crowd at the gymnasium where Santorum was speaking booed when the two began to kiss, and chanted “U-S-A, U-S-A” as the demonstrators left the building. Palatine Patch reports on the disruption and subsequent ejection:

Santorum was 15 minutes into his speech when the two men shouted and got the attention of the crowd. They exchanged a kiss, prompting guards to eject them and the crowd to chant ‘U-S-A’ while they were leaving the gym.

When asked whether the kiss was a public display of affection or merely a symbolic act, Timothy Tross of Lombard and Ben Clifford of Algonquin, declined to comment.

‘I don’t think the message should be about what my sexuality is,’ Tross said. ‘It’s the message that he’s saying about sexuality that matters.’

Santorum has had issues with LGBT protesters at events before. In addition to multiple glitter bombings, Santourm has faced hecklers at several events who appear displeased with his pro-life and pro-traditional marriage positions. The Patch reports that about 50 protesters stood outside Santorum’s rally in Arlington Heights Friday holding sings that read “LGBT No H8,” “Catholics Against Santorum” and “If I incorporate myself, would you treat me like a person?”

An estimated 2,100 supporters attended the Santorum rally. See video of the ejection and ‘U-S-A’ chant.

The Impossible Dream

Rick Santorum’s strategy for becoming the Republican presidential nominee comes down to this: prevent Mitt Romney from winning enough delegates to arrive at the GOP convention this summer with a mandate and persuade delegates to ignore election results in their states.

The hope is that delegates will go with Santorum as the more conservative option over front-runner Romney. But there’s a hitch: Newt Gingrich is refusing to quit the race.

It’s a long-shot gamble for a candidate who began as long shot and badly trails Romney in delegates leading to the August convention in Tampa, Fla., where Republicans will pick a challenger to President Barack Obama.

Adding to Santorum’s money and organizational challenges is the fact that Gingrich is splitting the conservative vote and is dismissing pressure by Santorum to drop out after losing this past week in Alabama and Mississippi.

Not that Santorum, who has defied expectations to become Romney’s chief challenger, seems daunted by the odds.

“You’ve been listening to math class and delegate math class instead of looking at the reality of the situation,” the former Pennsylvania senator told reporters in Biloxi last week. “It’s going to be very difficult for anyone to get to the number of delegates that is necessary to win with the majority at the convention.”

“This isn’t about math,” Santorum says. “This is about vision.”

So far, it’s all adding up for Romney.

He has captured 495 delegates, more than all of his rivals combined. Santorum stands at 252, Gingrich has 131 and Ron Paul is at 48, according to an Associated Press projection. That puts Romney on pace to win the required 1,144 delegates in June.

Romney’s advisers claim it would take an “act of God,” as one put it, for Santorum to take the lead in the delegate count. “If he is able to pull off a miracle so be it. He’ll be the nominee,” Romney said.

Santorum, whose Catholic faith is central to his campaign, was not amused. “I don’t know about him, but I believe in acts of God,” Santorum said.

One of his strategist’s, John Patrick Yob, put it another way in a recent memo that said the Romney team’s focus on the delegate count was an effort to distract from what Santorum’s campaign claims is trouble the front-runner faces in county, district and state conventions, where delegates are locked in.
