Political Surrender From the Extreme Right?

Dobson weilds a really big bat on the field that is home to the extremes on the religious right. Is he really crying UNCLE?


James Dobson's Political Surrender

Politically, James Dobson has surrendered. At least for the time being. Today, the Focus on the Family founder devotes his typically family-focused radio show to what he calls "the utter evil that's coming out of the United States Congress." He's referring to the hate crimes bill that recently passed the House.

That's not so unusual.

What's surprising is that Dobson tells his listeners that they're politically helpless:

I want to tell you up front that we're not going to ask you to do anything, to make a phone call or to write a letter or anything.

There is nothing you can do at this time about what is taking place because there is simply no limit to what the left can do at this time. Anything they want, they get and so we can't stop them.

We tried with [Health and Human Services Secretary] Kathleen Sebelius and sent thousands of phone calls and emails to the Senate and they didn't pay any attention to it because they don't have to. And so what you can do is pray, pray for this great nation... As I see it, there is no other answer. There's no other answer, short term.

In an age of evangelical leaders like Rick Warren, Joel Hunter, and Richard Land, who've all expressed openness to working with the Obama administration, Dobson clings firmly to the culture war mentality: You're either with us or against us. He elaborates on why Christians are powerless as long as Democrats are in power:

I've been on the air for 32 years and I've never seen a time quite like this. It just illustrates what happens when we don't have what the Founding Fathers referred to as checks and balances, where the excesses of one party or one branch of government limit the reach of power hungry and self-serving people and keeps them form doing things that are harmful to the country. That's the way the system was designed. We have 2 major political parties in this country, not one. And bipartisanship is a media creation that's designed to promote one point of view instead of the debate that should occur. And that's why media doesn't talk about bipartisanship when conservatives are in power...

...[today] the radical left controls the executive branch through the president, and the Congress... and the Judiciary through the courts... now they control it all, including every department of government. As a result, the legislation that should shock the nation, if people were paying attention, is being rushed into law.

Dobson made headlines earlier this year when he said that conservative Christians had entered their "most discouraging period" and that "humanly speaking, we can say that we have lost all those battles." He later explained that he meant that conservative Christians had lost many battles, but that the culture war was by no means over.

What's remarkable about today's broadcast is that Dobson plainly states that the only way for Christians to start winning again politically is for the GOP to regain power. He makes no effort to avoid coming across as a Republican activist. For a long time, Dobson went out of his way to keep up the appearance of being above partisan politics. As he enters what may be the twilight of his broadcasting career, he appears to care less and less about maintaining that image.


  1. Dobson & others won't achieve any-thing until they start "calling out" the kike!...the next step after that is armed resistance...the only way "the culture wars" can be won!...the Republicunts are no better than the Democraps...BOTH are controlled by the kike!

  2. Dobson is right to a certain degree. I will share a letter to me from Senator Mark Warner to illustrate the point.

    Dear Mr. _______, (omitted due to topic and extremely limited trust of the government and liberal extremists like Delorean here on this site.)

    Thank you for your recent letter about reforming our nation's health care system. I share your concerns about the need to reform our health care system in a deliberate, informed and responsible manner.

    Although I do not support a government-run single-payer health care system, I believe we need comprehensive reform to achieve a competitive, cost-effective, and efficient system. This effort should be primarily focused on ensuring that all Americans can get adequate health coverage that is cost-effective and """based upon data-driven medical standards""". (***Keyword for, we are going to keep your medical records online for any doctor or insurance carrier to see. Some say, that is great, they will provide better care for me by understanding my medical history. The smart say, that is wacked, they are helping the insurance company get a comprehensive list of medical ailments I have had in the past so they can screw me on premiums***) Any final reform should also include measures to promote use of electronic medical records and a more intense focus on wellness and preventive care. (***Seeing the doctor frequently will really help us all out, won't it? Doc, I've got the sniffles, do ya think it's the pig flu? There is a nice waste of tax payer money to fatten the docs pockets***)

    Using the budget reconciliation process to address health care reform has benefits and drawbacks. Proponents of reconciliation, which would require only 51votes in the Senate as opposed to 60, argue that it will enable fast action in an area that desperately needs reform and allow for coverage of the uninsured to be improved and health care costs reduced. (***So, he gave up the Dems plan. They will use budget reconciliation to force this to happen and there will be no debate from the Republican side.*** This is the supporting evidence***) Critics maintain that the process would push forward an agenda without bringing all sides to the table, poisoning attempts to achieve a bipartisan solution to the health care reform debate. As I formulate my position on this issue, I will keep your comments in mind. (***How nice, my comments will help formulate his bipartisan decision since there won't be one***)

    Thanks again for writing with your views on health care. I hope to have your input in the coming months as we craft legislation to improve a health care system that is in dire need of reform. (***Believe me, he will have my input. So will Senator Webb (D) of VA and Bob Goodlatte (R) of the House***)

    United States Senator

    (***The only thing that Mark Warner failed to mention which is part of both the Republican and Democrat plan is the fact that they want to end medical lawsuits. It already costs a bare minimum of 25K to sue a doctor. The lawyer will do it for free if the think they can win as they get paid upon a successful suit but you have depositions which are a minimum of 15K, bringing in an expert witness which would be a doctor from out of state which has a proven track record that is significantly more experienced than the doc that did the job. That is 1K per hour from door to door to go to court. etc, etc, etc.***)

    (***I bought my X wife a set of tits and the doctor butchered her. She almost died from a staff lucocus infection which is a common bacteria that is found in the nose. THE DOCTORS NOSE. There was quite a bit more malpractice relating to this issue but it is a long story. Basically, I didn't have the extra 25k sitting around to "possibly" win the case. The lawyers all loved the case and wanted to take it but couldn't guarantee a win.***)

    (***My point is, with a cost of 25K plus to sue a doctor for medical malpractice, I can pretty much assure you that there are very few med mal law suits that the people don't honestly feel that the doctor butchered or wrongfully killed their love one.

    Suing a doctor is only for the extremely wealthy.

    So,,, who are they helping by preventing the legitimate lawsuits that are remaining?***)

  3. jimbo aka Nimbuster Artie should shut his prison bitch mouth.

  4. How are my favorite "selective anti-racists" doing? Still parading around like you are antis? LOL!

  5. Nimbusters is ran by this kook jew called "Newsguy2005" out of New York. He's an Israel apologetic and self-proclaimed neocon. He's an idiot.

  6. Jimbo:

    I predict it won't be long until they do start "calling out". Trouble is, it will be too late when they do.

  7. Wonder what Dobson thought when Obama declared that this wasn't "a Christian" nation.

  8. Obama's enemy is not Islam abroad, but Christianity at home. Indeed, if he treated Muslims the way he treats believing Christians in America, Muslims would call it a holy war.

    As far as Obama is concerned, the only religion to be “reformed” — which is to say destroyed — is not the West’s historic adversary but its progenitor. Islam is peaceful, he pronounces, while traditional Christianity is "bigoted" and dangerous. Islam is a friend to America, while traditional Christians are, as Obama supporter Tom Hanks described Proposition 8 supporters, “un-American.” Other Chrisitans are even labeled as "terrorist" by Napolitano in her DHS memo.

  9. Hooch - Do you really believe a patrician like Mark Warner really gives a damn about health care for the masses? The Senate has the best health insurance in the country - they don't pay a dime for their health care.

    The only effective health insurance reform will come from someone who knows what it's like to have to choose between paying for health insurance and paying the rent.

    And as for you idiot Nimbustards who keep gimping up Nikki's threads, if you can't address the topic, stay off this blog. Nikki's readers don't care who NewsGuy 2005 really is, or any other similar nonsense. You perverted Nimtards contaminate and corrupt any serious discussion. Keep your garbage on Nimbusters where it belongs.

  10. Just cause Der Fuehrer say we are not a Christian nation doesn't make it so.

    Obama may be surprised to know the Founders themselves were 90 to 95% Christian while the general population was 98% Christian. Obama may be entitled to his opinions, but he is not entitled to his facts.

    Our Founders based their notions of liberty under God on the great Christian legal minds that had gone before them: Calvin, Knox, Rutherford, Locke, Montesquieu, etc.

    The sixth President of the United States and son of the second President, John Quincy Adams said, "The highest glory of the American Revolution was, it connected in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." He was a little closer to the facts than the 45th President Obama.

    President James Madison wrote, “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God” (Madison, 1785).

    The Supreme Court has ruled that we are a Christian nation. The Supreme Court thoroughly studied this issue, and in 1892 gave what is known as the Trinity Decision. In that decision the Supreme Court declared, "this is a Christian nation."

    I could go on. Anyone that denies the fact doesn't know the history of this great nation.

  11. Why does Blevins continue to post? Doesn't he realize he is almost as stupid as Artie?

  12. Who cares about "Evangelical" charlatans like Dobson when there is international extreme-right drama and dirty laundry.

  13. The NIMBuster jews are on this new rampage against someone named "Artie". It never ends with these filthy yids and their whining.

  14. Shut the fuck up, Arty. Frank and NewsGuy owned your ass.

  15. LOL! You do realize that NIMBusters is a very effective tool for WNist counter surveillance right? We have known about you morons for quite some time and know a lot of your socks on various boards.
    We sometimes have a hard time reading that forum because of your degenerate fascination with transexuals, feces and other perversions. But I guess that is jew-normal after all. ;)

  16. Above is more Arty bullshit. For those that do not know about Arty, he is a career convict who recently was released from prison. He is in his early 60's a total failure in life. He is a miserable old man who hates his betters and tells lies about Jews and Israel 24/7. He is a rampant homosexual who posts shemale porn and has several rusted out RX-7 sitting outside his trailer home. He is a total loser. He was shown up as a total fool by Frank of TRP and NewsGuy!

  17. Fuck the white race!

    Fuck the kikes, too!

  18. My Impersonator hard at work I see. What a total dipshit. I did not post the above message, some total fuckwad did that.

  19. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  20. This Arty is well known to me. He lives in Kentucky I believe, he is one of Matthew Ramsey's butt boys, posts on Zog's Nightmare as Nigger Knocker. One of the few people Bill turned down for membership in ANSWP. Has numerous involuntary commitment to the nut house as well as spending about half his life in prison on weapons charges. He is a total nut case. Makes Blevins look sane.

  21. """Hooch - Do you really believe a patrician like Mark Warner really gives a damn about health care for the masses? The Senate has the best health insurance in the country - they don't pay a dime for their health care."""

    I don't know. I think the dems do want it as Obama will be looked at by his fellow libs as being a massive failure if he doesn't put together a good health care system.

    """The only effective health insurance reform will come from someone who knows what it's like to have to choose between paying for health insurance and paying the rent."""

    Totally agree. The largest problem is that Obama was elected by massive funding from the health care, pharmaceutical and insurance industries. So I don't see him screwing them. Actually I think we will see some sort of plan that on the surface appears to be good for the public but will be laced with massive profits for those who really put Obama in office.

  22. Speaking of nut jobs: I see Hooch is running his pie hole again. Why does he think he has a clue much less a brain? Democrats have been pushing health care reform since Clinton. Republicans oppose it because they take massive amounts of money from the health care industry. It doesn't really matter though what Republican oppose does it? They're too damn weak even for a Filibuster. Oh yes baby.

    Hooch sez:
    It's the Liberals! It's the Liberals! It's the liberals!

    Shut your trap you fuckin' idiot. Mommy and Daddy are trying to have a grown up discussion, go to your room and play with yourself.

  23. Burks impersonator:

    """Democrats have been pushing health care reform since Clinton."""

    Are you saying they have been failing at health care reform ever since January 20th, 1993? My god, you really put it into perspective.

    """It doesn't really matter though what Republican oppose does it? They're too damn weak even for a Filibuster. Oh yes baby."""

    They aren't going to do it via filibuster fool with a reading comprehension problem. They will use budget reconciliation to force this to happen.

  24. I guess it's official everyone including that idiot Burks hates Hooch/Vonbluvens. What a whiny idiot.

  25. TRP4LIFE's stench of gefiltefish is really overpowering.....ugh.

  26. As for twink nutcase ziocohen Burks....noone gives a good goddamn what you think. You're a sorry sack of shit!
