What Does Rick Perry and O'Hare International have in common?

I'm all for winning the Presidency in 2012 and sending Obama out to pasture. Saying that, Perry won't do. Like Newt Gingrich, he has more baggage than the lost and found at O'Hare International.

Perry might be strong enough to win the GOP nomination, but THEN WHAT?

Perry is far from being a conservative:

1. Perry supported Rudy Giuliani in 08, as Mike Huckabee put it "For all his new found commitment to hyper-conservatism," said the former GOP presidential candidate, "he'll get to explain why he supported pro-abortion, pro-same sex marriage Rudy Giuliani last time."

2. As a former Democrat, he was Al Gore Texas Campaign Chairman during the 1988 election.

3. Then there's his Texas Dream act. Perry, who presides over a state with a large and growing Hispanic population. has been criticized by Texas Tea Party groups for not pushing hard enough to pass a "sanctuary city" ban and other hard-line immigration legislation. In 2001, he signed the Texas version of the DREAM Act allowing children of illegal immigrants access to in-state college tuition.

4. In 2007, Perry signed an executive order requiring that Texas sixth-grade girls be vaccinated against the human papilloma virus, a sexually transmitted disease that causes cervical cancer. (The order was ultimately blocked, but the order outraged many conservatives.)

5. Texas DEBT PROBLEM: Texas' debt has doubled under Perry. Since 2001, according to the Star-Telegram's Mitchell Schnurman, Texas' debt has grown at a faster rate than that of the U.S. government. Perry assumed office in December 2000.

Etc.......Etc......Etc.....

I could go on and list at least 30 more items but instead, I'll let you read what the The Texas Tea party and the New Hampshire Tea Party Coalition have put together. If you are considering supporting Rick Perry and believe that it's important to be informed, You have to take a look at THIS.

Let’s talk , for just a moment, about ” Core beliefs.” Seems to be a constant theme about Mitt Romney. So, what are Rick Perry’s ” Core Beliefs?”

Rick Perry is planning upon running for President, based upon his ” Core beliefs” and his close ideological association with evangelicals. He certainly isn’t planning on running on the basis of his Texas accomplishments as ” the longest serving Governor in Texas history.” Like…..
Texas is 47 out of 50 in education in the U.S. Perry just cut the Texas education budget by $ 4 Billion.

Texas is dead last , 50/50 in % of people over 25 with H.S. Diploma.

Texas is dead last in % of women with pre natal health care.

Texas is dead last in health care equity

Texas has a $ 25 Billion debt
Texas is FIRST in pollution
Texas is FIRST in uninsured children
Texas is FIRST in Executions

In addition, Perry introduced “Intelligent Design” into Texas Public Schools .
He also believes laws criminalizing gay sex were ” appropriate “, even after Supreme Court overthrew the
state law in “Lawrence vs Texas”

But, enough of Perry’s superlatives. I want to get to his ” Core Beliefs.”
He is the INITIATOR of The Response, his Houston prayer meeting set for August 6. His co-sponsor is AFA, the American Family Association.Two of the executives of AFA, including the founder, Don Wildmon. are hosts.. Other national endorsers of The Response, are Dr John Benefiel of Heartland Apostolic Prayer Net, Mike Bickle, Director of International House of Prayer and Dr. Cindy Jacobs of Generals International. Presumably, Rick shares their beliefs or he wouldn’t have them participating in an event he initiated. Right ??
So, what do they believe ? It’s a good question as they have co billing in The Response coming in August.

AFA……..Spokesman Bryan Fischer is quoted as believing
Gays are responsible for the death of Jews in the holocaust
Gays caused the rise of Adolph Hitler
Native Americans deserved to have their land stolen because they were of the ” wrong religion.”
African American women ” rut like rabbits”
Herman Cain is authentically black

Heartland…Director, Benefiel, believes Statue of Liberty is a ” Demonic Idol.”
General International’s Cindy Jacobs believes natural catastrophes are caused by God’s anger at homosexuality

Intnl. House of Prayer’s Bickle believes Oprah Winfrey will be one of the pastors of the Harlot Babylon and pave the way for the anti- Christ

There are other issues in Perry’s associations that are equally disturbing. Does Perry believe what these folks believe ? I don’t know, but the public needs to know if he doesn’t and why these folks would be invited to Perry’s Prayer meeting. Just like Obama’s problem with Jeremiah Wright, there is a reason why they are invited, but their published and quoted comments are so antithetical to American thought that I would like to hear from Rick Perry before he announces for President , how close his ” core beliefs ” are to these comments. The Dems could have a true field day with this craziness but its going to be on parade on August 6 with Perry as the ” Initiator ”

Craig, we are on the same page today. Last night, I spent a good deal of time learning about these people, and I was considering writing a post about "The Response", and Perry's association with the NAR. (New Apostolic Reformation / Dominionism)

There's a lot to learn, and most of it disturbing. I guess the press is kind of holding back on it for now. It's a treasure trove, to be sure.

Just a little taste for anyone interested:

My thought is to assume Perry believes as these people do. He is the one who went out and initiated the prayer gathering. He chose the sponsors. His associations with them did not start yesterday, and he claims that God is calling him to run, and that this is what America needs.

I suggest we learn more about the people, and the NAR to see just what they have in store for America--with Perry as their vehicle to get there. It opened my eyes as to what is going on with this movement. They mean to take over everything--including the government.

Once people really know how nuts this is, Perry will sink like a stone. So I hope the sane part of the GOP finds out before it's too late.

And people were afraid of Romney. Ha!

January 2010: Perry told a questioner at a January 2010 debate that he “absolutely” would serve his full new 4-year term.

March 2010: Perry told Politico that he had “no interest” in being the next president “in any form or fashion.”

April 2010: Perry had the following exchange with Evan Smith of Newsweek.
ES: Everybody wants to know about your plans for 2012. Are you considering running and would you consider it?
RP: No and no.
ES: You are not considering running for president. You will not run for president.
RP: That’s correct.
ES: Under any circumstances?
RP: That’s correct.
ES: Vice president? Would you be willing to consider that?
RP: No. I don’t care about going to Washington, D.C.

December 2010: Perry told Reuters “I don’t want to be president of the United States. I’m not going to run for the presidency of the United States.” He also insisted the he already had “the best job in America.”

May 2011: Perry’s spokesman Mark Miner told National Journal “Nothing has changed. The governor has no intention of running for president.”

These, IMO, were lies.

It doesn't really matter, but I never believed one word of this. I think Perry's intention was to be the dark horse coming into the race late.
