Study: Immigrants keeping American Catholic Church afloat

The infusion of newcomers, especially Spanish-speaking immigrants, has kept the American Catholic Church from joining other mainline denominations in dramatic decline, according to a study released today by the Pew Forum on Religion & American Life.

"While nearly one-in-three Americans (31%) were raised in the Catholic faith, today fewer than one-in-four (24%) describe themselves as Catholic. These losses would have been even more pronounced were it not for the offsetting impact of immigration," the report noted.

Pew's U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, which polled 35,000 American adults, also found that the U.S. is on the verge of becoming a minority Protestant country, or barely 51 percent. However, the nation is still an overwhelmingly Christian nation, with 78.4 percent.

This confirms something I've been saying on my show for quite some time. It also explains why the U.S. Catholic Bishops have taken such a liberal stance on illegal immigration. I'm sure we've all heard the old adage "Don't bite the hand that feeds you". Nuff said!

According to the survey, Latinos already account for roughly one in three adult Catholics overall and may account for an even larger share of U.S. Catholics in the future.

More PC on TV

I'll be taking time off from my lucrative male modeling career to appear on Fox & Friends Saturday (2/16/08) at 8:15AM ET. Set your TIVO now.

The paired me up with Bill Press.
In the first block we talked about whether or not Florida and Michigan should hold a re-vote in order to have their votes count during the convention. Newt is calling for it. Of course there is another petition the party at the convention. Hillary, of course, does not want a re-vote because she won the two states uncontested. Watch video HERE

In the second block we focused on the fight for number 2...the VP slot. Who should each of the candidates McCain, Obama, and Hillary choose as their running mates?

Cramer on Radio

Harve Alan, has posted the video of Jim Cramer commenting on the business of radio this week on Wall Street Confidential on

From the opening introduction by host Farnoosh Torabi, including the words “Radio…maybe a dying medium” to Cramer’s defining, comment of “Radio is over as we know it.” Clearly, this is not a PR video from the NAB. However, it is completely true. What Cramer says in this video is exactly what is going on.

1.When you decide that all that matters is great cash flow, and cash flow starts to go down, then you don’t have anything.
2.Once XM and Sirius team up then there will be a uniform satellite service and will be in every car.
3.Cars are what radio is about. (At least for the last 30 years)
4.People who own radio talk a big game (Nothing wrong with that, gang. It’s show biz.)
And the big enchilada…
5. Radio is finished, as we know it!

Napoleon Hill on The Science of Success

Think and Grow Rich! (ISBN 1-59330-200-2) is a classic motivational book. Written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie, it was published in 1937 at the end of the Great Depression. In 1960, Hill published an abridged version of the book, which for years was the only one generally available. In 2004, Ross Cornwell published Think and Grow Rich!: The Original Version, Restored and Revised (Second Printing 2007), which restored the book to its original content, with slight revisions, and added the first comprehensive endnotes, index, and appendix the book had ever contained.

The text of Think and Grow Rich! is founded on Hill's earlier work, The Law of Success, the result of more than twenty years of research based on Hill's close association with a large number of individuals who achieved great wealth during their lifetimes.

At Carnegie's bidding, Hill studied the characteristics of these achievers and developed fifteen "laws" intended to be applied by anybody to achieve success. Think and Grow Rich! itself condenses these laws further and provides the reader with 13 principles in the form of a philosophy of personal achievement.

Reflected in these principles is the importance of cultivating a burning desire, faith, autosuggestion and persistence in the attainment of one's goals. Hill also discusses the importance of overcoming many of the common fears that can adversely affect one's thinking and potential.

In his introduction, Hill refers to the "Carnegie Secret", a conception which he reports is the foundation of all success and appears to be the premise of the book. Hill promises to indirectly describe this "secret" in every chapter, but never state it plainly, believing the use of the secret is only available to those who possess a "readiness" for it, a disposition Hill describes as essential to the concept itself.

Think and Grow Rich has sold consistently since its first publishing. According to one publisher, the book has now sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. Think and Grow Rich is currently ranked #9 on the BusinessWeek Best-Seller List for paperback business books and has been on the aforementioned list for 22 months as of April 2007.

This is how much Europe is changing. Dutch Catholics have decided that they need to re-name the Lent fast. So they've decided to name Lent the "Christian Ramadan." And why have they felt the need to put Lent into Islamic terms? Because young people in their country are more likely to know about Islam than Christianity.

The Catholic organizers hope that by linking the Muslim festival of Ramadan they can remind Christians of the "spirituality and sobriety" of Lent, for those Christians who may be less observant than Muslims.

Can you believe this is happening folks? Amazing! Perhaps Europe truly is lost.
All hail Eurabia!!! H/T Boortz

Another Flag Issue for Obama?

Democrat Presidential candidate Barack Obama already has an issue with wearing American Flag lapel pins, and even with putting his hand over his heart when the American National Anthem is playing. It will be interesting to see how he'll react (if at all) to the flag hanging in one of his new campaign offices in Houston, Texas.
Yep, that's right -- that is the national flag of Cuba hanging on the wall with none other than Che Guevara superimposed on it.

Keith Olbermann's Special Apology: The New, Ultimate Remix!

Why was it OK for Olbermann to accuse Bush of "Pimping Out" General Petraus but David Schuster is suspended for saying the same thing about Chelsea? Does MSNBC have a double standard?

The White House wants a $1.4 billion stimulus/national security package…for Mexico?

From Michelle Malkin's Blog...

A reader asked me to check into information that President Bush was pushing a massive foreign-aid package to Mexico to help them secure their southern border against the flow of illegal aliens from Central America.

“We can’t even get our own border straight, and we are going to provide Mexico with funding so they can solve their problem,” the reader fumed. “I doubt the Central Americans are staying very long in Mexico anyway. We know where they are going!”

Too outrageously outrageous to be true?

Well, I checked it out and it’s even worse than the reader described. Far worse.

The plan is called “The Merida Initiative.” Seems that the White House has had this plan in the works for nearly a year with little congressional input on either side of the border.

We can’t finish our own border fence, properly supply our immigration agents and border patrol with all the equipment and resources they need, or get our house in order. Yet, the Bush administration wants to fork over $1.4 billion to Mexico and Central America–with much of it going into the hands of corrupt law enforcement officials and government bureaucrats who have worked tirelessly to undermine our immigration laws. The funding is tucked into the 2008 supplemental budget.

Planned Parenthood Closes Pro-Abortion Businesses in Five States

Washington, DC ( -- The nation’s largest abortion business has closed facilities in five states, including two locations in Illinois, one and Idaho and merging two in Kentucky. The abortion business claims the closures are the result of a lack of funding in the way of taxpayer dollars, even though the business maintains millions in the bank and makes money on an annual basis.

According to STOPP International, a watchdog group, Planned Parenthood closed an express clinic in Nampa, Idaho, an express clinic in Naperville, Illinois, and a non-express clinic in Lincoln, Illinois.

It has also closed or merged centers in Ohio and Michigan in recent weeks.

Planned Parenthood closed its Naperville facility because it recently opened a massive new abortion center in Aurora that has been the subject of international controversy because the abortion business used a fake name to get zoning approval to build it.

Audio: Terry McAuliffe pressed about shady land dealings

Kick back, sit back, listen and enjoy! My interview with Terry McAuliffe from February of 2007.
It's one of my fondest moments from 540WFLA. Some people described it as an AMBUSH!
Listen HERE.

Orlando radio talk show host Pat Campbell had the chance to interview former DNC chairman Terry McAuliffe and current failure who is now working on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Pat immediately pressed Terry, who claims to be a Catholic, but is very pro-abortion. The best part of the interview, though, was Pat trying to get to the bottom of a land deal where McAuliffe invested $100 and got back $2.45 million.

Byron York writes:
In one deal, McAuliffe and the fund officials created a partnership to buy a large block of commercial real estate in Florida. McAuliffe put up $100 for the purchase, while the pension fund put up $39 million. Yet McAuliffe got a 50-percent interest in the deal; he eventually walked away with $2.45 million from his original $100 investment. In another instance, the pension fund loaned McAuliffe more than $6 million for a real-estate development, only to find that McAuliffe was unable to make payments for nearly five years. In the end, the pension fund lost some of its money, McAuliffe moved on to his next deal, and fund officials found themselves facing the Labor Department’s questions.


I remember the movie "A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN" featuring Madonna, Geena Davis and Rosie O'Donnell. The baseball team loses and the women start crying and Tom Hanks character says, "There is no crying in baseball!"

Someone needs to tell Hillary that THERE IS NO CRYING IN POLITICS!
-by Peter Thiele

Sadly she's doing this because it works & the MSM allows her to get away with it. Imagine if it was a guy breaking down like this, they'd question his mental stability "Is he fit to lead?" they'd say. Remember Muskee?-PC

Good Advice!

I was reading an article by Charles Staley the other day. He's a highly sought after coach/trainer that works with elite professional and olympian athletes. I found this section to be very interesting.

First, here are 5 "philosophical" paradigms for success– what I consider to be better ways to think and to evaluate information:

1. The majority Is ALWAYS wrong, therefore DO THE OPPOSITE.

I consider this idea to be my central operating paradigm in life, and rarely have I found it to not be the case. Even if you apply this concept absolutely, across the board, without critical thought, to every aspect of your life, you'll end up better off.

Here are but a few examples:

— The majority of people have no goals. Therefore, establish goals for yourself.

— The majority of people don't train. Therefore, train.

— The majority of people think that seeing their doctor regularly is essential for optimal health. HAVING GOOD HEALTH HABITS is essential for optimal health.

—The majority of people don't plan for their future, and end up unprepared for their retirement. Therefore, prepare for your future.

—The majority of people watch TV for several hours per day. Therefore, don't watch TV.

—The majority of people spend many hours per day in a seated position. Therefore, spend more time on your feet.

—The majority of people don't read. You're reading now—good for you.

The Carrot, Egg and Coffee Parable

The Carrot, the Egg, and Coffee

The carrot, the egg and coffee grounds were to face adversity in the form of boiling water for a specified time period. The carrot before facing the adversity of the water, was strong, vibrant, and colourful. That was its basic nature. After facing and trying to resist the adversity of the boiling water the carrot came out, dull, soft, limp. Its basic nature had been changed, but the adversity of the water remained undaunted and clearly the victor.

The egg before being beset with the adversity of the boiling water seemed symmetrical, whole, and complete in its hard shell protecting its inner liquid nature, its real self. Upon facing the adversity of the water the egg also tried to resist. The boiling water was unrelenting. The adversity was too much. The symmetry of the outer shell was now easily cracked, easily broken. What it attempted to protect had become hard, different, no longer fluid and liquid. Its basic nature had been altered by adversity.

Yet the boiling water remained undaunted, still the adversary, still the victor, still unchanged.

The coffee went in to the boiling water but something was now different. Instead of attempting to resist or avoid the water, the coffee embraced it. By embracing the water and its adversity something interesting happened. The nature of the coffee indeed changed. But it was enhanced. The coffee by embracing the adversity became something greater than it was, and for the first time, it was the boiling water that changed from being embraced rather than resisted.

The adversity of the water became part of the new form of what coffee, had “transformed” into. The coffee, unlike the carrot or the egg, embraced the adversity and by so doing, altered the adversity itself, to a more complete version of itself.

The coffee was improved by not only facing the adversity of the water, but by embracing it!

There are so many life lessons to this parable. I should think most are obvious.
