Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized While Liberals Display Hateful Remarks

Conservative Talk Show Host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii yesterday, after complaining of chest pains.

Limbaugh's guest host Walter Williams told listeners that the talk radio king "continues to rest very comfortably" at a Honolulu hospital, where doctors planned a complete medical exam.
"While those pains can be an indicator of a cardiac event, the cause of his discomfort cannot be confirmed at this time," Williams said. "But he's going to take a lot of tests."

Williams said Limbaugh is in "good, stable condition" and he assured loyal listeners that "he's in very good hands."

"He's aware and thankful for all the prayers and concerns and best wishes that have poured in to him," Williams said. 1

Author's Note: Please pray for Rush Limbaugh's speedy recovery. Would any reasonable person, even if a liberal, want to be in a hospital on New Year's Eve? Liberal ugliness rears its head at wrong moments, and this is one of them.

No Tears For 2009, Thanks To Economic Woes, Health Care, Homeland Security, And A Politically Correct Liberal White House

Why are most Americans glad that 2009 is ending? Is it because of the severe economic crisis? Is the troubled economy the only reason? Is it the health care situation? Is it worries about Social Security and Medicare? How about the Ft. Hood Massacre?

Sarah Palin on Ft. Hood:

I think that there were massive warning flags that were missed all over the place," she said. "I think that it was quite unfortunate that, to me, it was a fear of being politically incorrect to not, I am going to use the word, profile this guy.

The following rather shocking conversation took place between a journalist at Der Spiegel (a German magazine) and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, (Napolitano was appointed by our very liberal President Barack Obama):

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
NAPOLITANO: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
There is no such word as "man-caused." I looked up the word at, and this questions was posed: "Did you mean uncaused?" It is scary that Janet Napolitano, the person Americans are supposed to trust regarding their security from terrorists, particularly Islamic Jihadist terrorists, finds the word "terrorism" to be politically incorrect.

Just for fun, here is the definition of the word "terrorism," a real word had no trouble in defining (in fact, there are three definitions of the word "terrorism" on


1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.

2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.

3. a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.

Will Mitt Romney Or Sarah Palin Be The U.S. Republican President In 2012?

Who will be the next Republican President? Will Mitt Romney win in 2012, or will it be Sarah Palin? This is a difficult question for me to answer. I heavily supported Mitt Romney in the 2008 election. However, I also happen to like Sarah Palin.

If both Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin turn out to be Republican presidential nominees in 2012, it will be a difficult decision at the CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM headquarters (which consists of one person only: Conservative Wordsmith Susan Baldwin) as to which candidate will receive public support.

You can be sure of one thing though, and that is that my decision won't be based on the fact that Mitt Romney calls himself a Mormon (Latter-Day Saint) and Sarah Palin refers to herself as being a Christian.

I will not, as many conservative Christian voters decided to do in the 2008 presidential election, base my support or vote on a candidate's religion, as this violates Article 6 of the United States Constitution (the "no religious test" clause).

If those same conservative Christian voters had put aside their concerns about Mitt Romney being a Mormon believer, and not a Christian believer (even though many Latter-Day Saints claim to be Christians), and focused on Mitt Romney's conservative values, who knows what might have happened in the 2008 presidential election? Perhaps Barack Obama would never have become the U.S. President. Would that have been so bad?

24's Hero Jack Bauer Interrogates Santa Claus Jack Bauer Style: Jack Wants To Know Why Santa Is In the U.S.

Merry Christmas to all 24 fans around the world! And now, for a real treat, watch this new Jack Bauer/Santa Claus video on YouTube. This is just the ticket for those of us who just about can't stand waiting for 24 to start up again in January.

The video begins with Jack Bauer walking into an interrogation room to face a bloody-looking Santa Claus. Jack tells Santa that he has the power to grant Santa immunity for "past and present crimes".

Kiefer Sutherland, in typical Jack Bauer torture mode, starts screaming at Santa to give him names and Santa then recites reindeer names: "Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen". The video ends with Santa Claus wishing Jack a Merry Christmas, and Jack breaking down crying, his face flooded with tears.

As a conservative who is biding my television viewing time until 24 starts up again in January, this video is a temporary cure for the "Missing Jack Bauer Blues." This is fun viewing for winter doldrums, and a must-see video for all Jack Bauer fans.

24's Jack Bauer: Why All The Fuss About Jack's Potential Muslim Conversion?

What is it about Fox TV's 24 character Jack Bauer, portrayed by actor Kiefer Sutherland, that makes so many people, from all over the world, continue to ponder the last moments in Season 7's final episode? This is a fascinating subject for those, like myself, who became a follower of a fictitious, yet seemingly very real, American hero named Jack Bauer. Jack Bauer's name even sounds like someone we might meet in everyday life, does it not?

To many non-Muslim followers of Fox TV's 24, the very idea of Jack Bauer even toying with the concept of converting to the Muslim faith seems to be preposterous, at the very least, for many reasons.

Here are just a few reasons why CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM thinks that the writers of 24's Season 7, at least the final episode, made a huge mistake:

1. Jack Bauer has consistently been an American hero, fighting against terrorists, particularly Islamic Jihadist terrorists.

2. Jack Bauer has never, in any episode of Fox TV's 24, expressed the slightest interest in any religion, so the thought of Jack suddenly contemplating a deathbed conversion to the prophet Mohammed's Islam religion appears to be ridiculous to many 24 fans.

3. But it isn't only that Jack Bauer has never expressed any interest in a particular religion. There is more to this than meets the eye. Jack Bauer has been a hero to all 24 fans, whether they are conservatives or liberals (and 24 does have both liberal and conservative followers on the political spectrum). When an American hero like Jack Bauer, even though fictitious, suddenly does a really inexplainable thing, like desiring to speak to a Muslim Imam on his deathbed, intelligent fans are bound to ask "why?"

Republicans Mitt Romney Or Sarah Palin: Will Either One Run Against President Obama In 2012?

According to a new poll by Utah TV station Fox 13 and, 53% of the Republicans  participating in this poll believe that Mitt Romney will be the top GOP presidential candidate in 2012, while 4% are rooting for Sarah Palin. Mitt Romney, a top contender in the 2008 presidential election, has also written a book, published by St. Martin's Press, and scheduled for publication on March 3 of 2010. 1 

A national tour is also on Mitt's 2010 schedule. Tickets are now on sale for Mitt Romney's March 13, 2010 signing event at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you are interesting in joining the 10,000 or Romneyites expected to attend this event, click

1 Taking page from Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney readies book blitz, written by Dave Wedge. The above information is a CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM summary. 

Author's Note: Utah is predominantly inhabited by Latter-Day Saints (commonly known as Mormons). Since Mitt Romney is also a Latter-Day Saint, this Utah-based poll should be taken with a rather heavy grain of salt.

I was an outspoken supporter of Mitt Romney in the 2008 presidential election (see my original Conservative Wordsmith blog to read my many popular published Mitt Romney posts).

Even so, I like Sarah Palin, and I believe that she has a good fighting chance to be the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. Sarah Palin could be the first woman in history to become U.S. President, and that would also mean the first Republican woman.

Will 24 Hero Jack Bauer Be A Muslim Believer In Season 8?

Will Jack Bauer, the hero portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland in Fox TV's 24 series, be a Muslim believer in 2010's Season 8? In May of 2009, I wrote a post entitled 24 Saga Of Jack Bauer's Confession to a Muslim Imam Continues. The following quotation is an excerpt:

Earlier this morning, I wrote a post about Kiefer Sutherland's character, Jack Bauer, as he was portrayed on Monday night's final episode of 24. I have received many hits on my site since then. Obviously depicting Jack Bauer as making his final deathbed confession to a Muslin imam has struck a strong chord with many 24 fans.

I have been an avid fan and follower of 24 since Day 1, and I don't recall Jack Bauer's religion having ever been mentioned on any of the previous episodes. Jack Bauer, having been a crusader, in a manner of speaking, against terrorism in past episodes, Muslim Jihadist terrorism in particular, has never shown any religious interest in becoming a Muslim.

Even though the final episode of 24's Season depicted the dying Jack Bauer confessing to a Muslim imam, I don't believe that Jack Bauer will actually be a Muslim in Season 8. Whether Jack Bauer will or will not be a Muslim when Season 8 premiers in January of 2010 depends, of course, upon whether Jack Bauer is still alive.

I'm guessing that the writers of 24 have by now realized the mistake they made, in the first place, by writing the now infamous Jack Bauer/Muslim imam deathbed scene.   They have probably figured out a miraculous, never before heard of, scientific discovery that has revived Jack Bauer  from the nearly departed.

My best guess is that there will be no follow-up on 24's Season 8 of the Jack Bauer/Muslim imam deathbed confession scene at all. The writers, in my opinion, will simply pretend that the Muslim imam scene in the final episode of 24's Season 7 never existed, and hope that the many angry 24 fans will be a forgiving TV audience.

Sarah Palin: "She's Not Retreating; She's Reloading."

I don't understand how any conservative could not like Sarah Palin. Now if you are calling yourself a conservative, but you secretly despise Sarah Palin and harbor fond thoughts about President Barack Obama, then that is a different situation.

In any case, Sarah Palin's new book, "Going Rogue: An American Life" is already a best-seller even though it is not scheduled to appear in your local bookstore until tomorrow, November 17. In the meantime, Sarah Palin appears on the Oprah Winfrey show today.

"One year later, Palin has seen more than her fair share of controversies but has emerged as one of the hottest Republican stars and is among the early leaders for the 2012 presidential nomination."

"We came back [from the campaign] to a new normal in Alaska. Everything had so changed in my administration," Palin continued. "There were so many opposition researchers up there in Alaska that were sent, probably, by the Obama camp. ... It was a point where my state of Alaska was being hampered by my presence there."

"Ultimately though, Palin made clear the move wasn't so much an end as it was a beginning."

"My dad's quote sums it up better than I sum it up," she said. 'She's not retreating; she's reloading.'"

If you think Sarah Palin is out of the political picture, think again. According to Matthew Continetti, associate editor of the Weekly Standard and the author of "The Persecution of Sarah Palin,"
"She has more followers on Facebook than any politician except President Obama. When I checked on Friday, she had close to 15,000 people following her on Twitter."

George W. Bush: "I Came Home To Texas With My Values Intact."

President George W. Bush
Public Domain
Former U.S. President George W. Bush spoke publicly at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas on November 12. This was a special event, attended by more than 1,000 people, to launch the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

"Mr. Bush said there were ups and downs, but through it all he 'always did what I believed was in the best interests of our country.'"

"And, he told the crowd to raucous applause, 'I came home to Texas with my values intact.'"

"There are three components to the center, he said: An archive, museum, and the policy institute."

The archive will include the documents and records of Mr. Bush's time in office, and will house 'four million photos; thousands of boxes of documents; and hundreds of millions of e-mails,' according to the former president, who said he is using the materials to be housed there for his forthcoming memoir."

"The policy institute, which will be called the George W. Bush Institute, will be 'a vibrant hub of principled thought and practical action,' the former president said."

"He said the institute will follow his principles, which include the idea that 'free markets open the path to opportunity, that a successful society requires personal responsibility, that freedom is universal and transformative, and that every human life has dignity and value.'"

From: George W. Bush: I Kept my Values

Author's Note: I still appreciate former President George W. Bush's honesty, integrity, and values. I hate to think what might have happened to the United States of America if someone else had been the U.S. President on 9/11.

I don't dare even think about it, because I know that no one could have ever done as good a job during that extreme crisis situation, and in the days to follow. Thank you, Mr. President.

Are Americans Losing Confidence In Obama? New Rasmussen and Zogby Polls Indicate "Yes"

Is America's confidence in Obama slipping? According to recent polls, the answer is definitely "yes."

"The Rasmussen poll has his approval dropping to 45 percent, after several weeks at 49 percent. The Zogby poll has it even lower -- at 42 percent.

* Only 75 percent of Democrats, who formerly have supported Obama strongly, now approve of his performance in office. Zogby reports that this represents a slide of more than 10 points over the summer.
* Even among blacks, only 74 percent approve of the job he's doing (also a drop of more than 10 points).
* Hispanics, who voted for him by a margin of more than 40 points, now break even (36-36) when rating his performance."

Author's Comment: Will liberal Democrats pave the way for a Republican president in 2012? Liberals just might be fickle enough to make that happen. Liberals voted for Obama. Now they are going to have to live with the consequences. When it suddenly hits them even harder, who knows? Maybe some liberals will even vote Republican the next time.

Atheist Reader's Dan Barker Comments Rejected by Conservative Christian/Political Blogger

This post is dedicated to Atheist Jeremy, who tried to leave 2 negative comments on one of my Dan Barker posts this morning (Christian Minister Dan Barker Became Atheist Due To Reading Secular Books).

Jeremy, I screen comments because I value my CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM website. I think it is important to publish comments that are reasonable, even if they are not in agreement with what I have written. However, some people have hidden agendas whose sole purpose is to try to convert believers into nonbelievers, i.e., atheists.

Anyone who tries to post a comment on my site with the intent of taking believers away from the Lord will not see their comment published on CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM.

Also, comments that are hostile, with malicious intent, will equally not be published.

Jeremy, you stated in one of your comments that the Bible should be read from cover to cover, although you didn't mean that from a Christian perspective. I would like to pose a question to you, and that is this: Have you ever read the Bible from cover to cover? If not, I would suggest that you stop believing and hanging on every word Dan Barker and Annie say, and instead use your own mind to discern the truth about the Bible and about God.

Jeremy, if you wish to write a comment that does not bash Christians, the Bible, or Christianity, but rather simply express your thoughts about atheism, and why you are an atheist, then I will consider the publication of such a comment, although there are still no guarantees. That is one of the advantages of having one's own site, and I intend to use that option in order to keep my site free from extreme negativity of the wrong kind.

Sarah Palin and USA TODAY/Gallup Poll: Sarah Palin For President In 2012? Majority of Republicans Say Yes!

Sarah Palin is a Republican fave for President in 2012, according to a Huffington Post article published today, July 9.

"A new nationwide USA TODAY/Gallup Poll has found that two-thirds of Republicans want Palin to be "a major national political figure" in the future. In fact a whopping 71% of Republicans say they'd likely vote for her if she ran for president in 2012. And this poll was done after her resignation!

In fact, announcing her resignation on the eve of Independence Day wasn't done so the deed could slide under the radar of a long holiday weekend.

No way. She did it BECAUSE it WAS Independence Day and she wasn't really announcing a resignation. No, she was actually proclaiming "my more politics as usual." 1

Mayor Villaraigosa Vows To Put Prop. 8 Back on California Ballot

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, in speaking about California's controversial Gay Marriage Proposition 8, vowed on Sunday, June 14, ""to put this issue back on the ballot." 1

If Mayor Villaraigosa succeeds, this would be the third time that Californians have been coerced into voting for Gay Marriage, when they have already made it clear that they are not in favor of two men, or two women, being called husband and wife.

By the way, Mayor Villaraigosa is a Roman Catholic, who, if you recall, was recently involved in a personal public scandal (cheating on his wife). It would be nice if Mayor Villaraigosa would set a better role model for young Latino men in the Los Angeles area, who look up to him as their Mayor.

California Supreme Court Finally Gets It Right (Almost) About Same-Sex Marriage and Prop 8: Gay Marriage No Longer Legal

The California Supreme Court finally got it almost right on Tuesday, May 26. Same-sex (aka gay) marriage is now illegal in the State of California.

Why shouldn't it be? California voters voted twice on this issue and made it clear that they didn't want same-sex marriage to be legal in California, but the liberal court system did not want to believe this truth. So it is good news that the California Supreme Court finally gets it.

The other side of the issue, though, is that the 18,000 same-sex couples who were already married prior to November 0f 2008, when the California Supreme Court was ignoring the wishes of California voters, will remain married! This seems odd, because how can same-sex marriage be legal for some gay couples, and illegal for the rest?

The California Supreme Court should have declared all same-sex marriages performed in November of 2008 to be illegal also, since the very legality of a California Supreme Court judge declaring that he has more authority than California voters is unethical, and maybe even illegal in itself.

An interesting sidebar to all of this is that prior to the Proposition 8 election, an ad was aired repeatedly by gay activists on Los Angeles television stations, declaring that gay couples have no rights in California, and that denying gay couples these rights was equal to denying rights to Jews in Nazi Germany's holocaust during WWII.

The fact of the matter is that even during the airing of those ads, full rights to same-sex couples were already in force, guaranteed by law in the state of California. The conservative rebuttal to Proposition 8 even mentioned the exact numbering of the law in my Official Voters' Guide.

So this was a downright lie on the part of gay activists, intent on deceiving the public at large. Fortunately, though, this deceptive tactic didn't work, because California voters still voted against gay marriage.

In this morning's Los Angeles Times   (May 27) article, the truth has finally come out about this advertising deception:

"'Proposition 8 merely 'carves out a narrow and limited exception' to the state constitutional protection gays and lesbians now receive, Chief Justice Ronald M. George wrote for the majority.'"

"The court majority said same-sex couples would continue to have the right to choose life partners and enter into 'committed, officially recognized and protected family relationships' that enjoy all the benefits of marriage under the state's domestic partnership law."

"'Like opposite-sex couples, same-sex couples enjoy this protection not as a matter of legislative grace, but of constitutional right,' George wrote."

"UC Berkeley constitutional law professor Goodwin Liu said the ruling shows "the court continues to be very deferential to the processes of direct democracy in California."

In spite of the above quotes regarding the legal rights of same-sex couples in California, an Associate Justice disagrees:

"In a separate, concurring opinion, Associate Justice Kathryn Mickle Werdegar noted some rights married couples have that domestic partners do not, and suggested that the state now has the duty 'to eliminate the remaining important differences.'"

What are those "important differences?" The Los Angeles Times article doesn't mention them.

Memorial Day TV: ABC Airs Gay Lesbian Marriage On "All My Children"

I am totally shocked by ABC's decision to air a gay lesbian marriage on "All My Children", an ABC daytime television soap opera, on Memorial Day, when children and teens are home from school. Not only were children and teenagers, especially vulnerable female teenagers, able to watch two women being married, but also kissing on the lips.

This outrageously liberal scene was aired on KABC TV's "All My Children" just a short time ago, but note that "All My Children" is aired all over the country, maybe the world, in whatever time zones are appropriate for any given area.

There is no way this can be an accident, seeing as the California Courts are expected to make an official decision Tuesday, May 26, about whether the voters of California get to see their Vote Against Gay Marriage upheld or ignored.

The fact that ABC (owned by The Walt Disney Company, by the way) would make a choice to air this episode of All My Children at all is deplorable enough in itself, but to choose Memorial Day as the day of the airing is irresponsible, irreverent, and despicable.

Today, Memorial Day, is the day that Americans honor those heroic soldiers that died for the sake of American freedom. I am certain that the liberty Americans recognize in the United States of America didn't include gay marriage in the minds of America's founding fathers.

Memorial Day In May Of 1868 and General John A. Logan

Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Memorial Day is a day to remember those who died in the service of the United States of America.

"General John A. LoganLibrary of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, [LC-B8172- 6403 DLC (b&w film neg.)]
Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his
General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states."

Memorial Day Prayer For Soldiers and Those Who Mourn

Here is an excerpt from a Memorial Day Prayer:

"God, lift the hearts of those for whom this holiday is not just diversion,but painful memory and continued deprivation.Bless those whose dear ones have died needlessly, wastefully [as it seems]in accident or misadventure.We remember with compassion those who have died serving their countries in the futility of combat." 1

Kiefer Sutherland Apologizes For Head Butt Incident; Jack Bauer's Deathbed Confession to Muslim Imam On "24" Still A Mystery

Was Jack Bauer making his deathbed confession to the Muslim Imam in the final episode of Fox TV's 24, Season 7 , or was Jack Bauer merely having a pleasant conversation with him? You have a chance to vote on this, as well as 9 other fun questions, on my first Conservative Wordsmith Poll, entitled
Did Jack Bauer Convert To Islam During His Deathbed Confession To The Muslim Imam?.

Speaking of Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland (the actor who portrays American hero Jack Bauer on 24) recently apologized for the heavily publicized, although unwarranted, head butt incident with a Manhattan, New York fashion designer, and there's a good chance now that all charges will be dropped.

"'I am sorry about what happened that night and sincerely regret that Mr. McCollough was injured,' Sutherland said in the statement.The star of Fox television's '24' was charged May 7 with third-degree assault in the alleged incident two weeks ago at a nightclub at the Mercer Hotel in the trendy SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. The minor charge is comparable to a speeding ticket.'"1

"A spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney's office declined to comment on whether the charges would be dismissed.But now that Sutherland and McCollough say they have resolved their differences, a prosecutor may go before a judge and ask that the case be dropped. That could happen at Sutherland's next scheduled court appearance on June 22.'"1
