Fort Lauderdale agrees to reconsider law at heart of Bahia Mar, First Presbyterian plans

Fort Lauderdale is promising to reconsider controversial land-use regulations that are being used in plans to expand First Presbyterian Church and redevelop the Bahia Mar hotel complex on the beach.

More than a dozen neighborhood associations asked the city to overhaul a nine-year-old law that was designed to allow “unique and innovative” developments outside the bounds of traditional city zoning. They complained the development classification can be abused by developers and result in homeowners’ own vision for their neighborhoods being overwhelmed.

City commissioners agreed Wednesday to set up a task force to refine what’s referred to as planned-urban developments. The commissioners acknowledged the current law is too loose and vague, but said current proposals like Bahia Mar and First Presbyterian could move forward through the city approval process.

“We do have the benefit of history and the benefit of being able to look back,” Mayor Jack Seiler said. “There are some lessons to be learned from the ordinance and what has happened over time.”

When the city decided in 2002 to allow developers to skirt around existing zoning regulations by proposing a planned-urban development instead, the idea was to give flexibility and breathe new life into areas. Developers could more easily combine housing and business and look for different ways to deal with issues like parking and how far a project sets back from the street.

REPORT: Mullah Omar Suffers Heart Attack

The Washington Post has just reported that Mullah Omar suffered a heart attack on January 7th and was rushed to the hospital by Pakistan’s spy network, the Inter-services Intelligence Agency.

And how is it that the ISI was right there to provide Omar with complimentary ambulance service?  Because, as we exclusively broke in May of last year, Omar has been in Pakistani custody since March 2010.

America is being played.

Remind me how much aid money we are pumping into Pakistan and what it is purchasing us?

More as this story develops.

Stephon Tuitt and his Monroe Area team had a huge basketball game scheduled Tuesday night. West Hall would be well-advised to look out below because Tuitt is likely to be flying high tonight.

On the same day that Tuitt was awarded a fifth star from the recruiting analysts at Rivals.com, Tuitt decided to switch his commitment from Notre Dame to Georgia Tech. Tuitt will be the highest-touted recruit ever to ink with Yellow Jackets when he signs on national signing day, according to JacketsOnline.com.

According to Tuitt, it was a difficult decision but one he’s been thinking about for a while.

“I think it’s where my heart was the whole time,” said the 6-foot-5, 260-pound defensive end. “I feel like I made a decision I can be comfortable with.”

Tuitt had been committed to Notre Dame since mid-September and entered the …

I have to admit, last night’s speech in Tuscon was the best Obama has given in his Presidential career.  This news about the Congresswoman got the biggest applause of the night:

But it was the last five minutes that had me wiping away a tear or three.

The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives – to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents.  And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud.  It should be because we want to live up to the example of public servants like John Roll and Gabby Giffords, who knew first and foremost that we are all Americans, and that we can question each other’s ideas without questioning each other’s love of country, and that our task, working together, is to constantly widen the circle of our concern so that we bequeath the American dream to future generations.

I believe we can be better.  Those who died here, those who saved lives here – they help me believe.  We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another is entirely up to us.  I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.

That’s what I believe, in part because that’s what a child like Christina Taylor Green believed.  Imagine: here was a young girl who was just becoming aware of our democracy; just beginning to understand the obligations of citizenship; just starting to glimpse the fact that someday she too might play a part in shaping her nation’s future.  She had been elected to her student council; she saw public service as something exciting, something hopeful.  She was off to meet her congresswoman, someone she was sure was good and important and might be a role model.  She saw all this through the eyes of a child, undimmed by the cynicism or vitriol that we adults all too often just take for granted.

I want us to live up to her expectations.  I want our democracy to be as good as she imagined it.  All of us – we should do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children’s expectations.

Spoken like a father of two girls about 9 years of age, and like a President of the United States.  As cynical and as jaded as I can be about politics, I am reminded that there are much greater things out there to believe in, and America is sure as hell one of them.  What a truly moving and powerful speech — just what the country needed.

An America as good as Christina Taylor Green imagined it.  Amen to that.

A New Tea Party…Deep In The Heart of Texas

Any regular readers of these pages will know that I consider Anita MonCrief a national hero. A former employee of ACORN, Anita’s incredible testimony before Congress helped to blow the scandalous workings of ACORN wide-open (not that the progressive led Congress or DOJ cared). Since her testimony Anita has kept fighting for America, she is dedicated to fighting government corruption, insuring voting procedure integrity, and identifying fully qualified Conservatives run for political office. She blogs at www.emergingcorruption.com (which should be a regular read) and is the National Spokes Person for AmericanMajority.org.

Ms MonCrief is adding to her already full plate of work helping to establish a Tea Party presence in African American communities across the country.

Ms. MonCrief will be working in Houston to help the Crispus Attucks Tea Party identify and prepare Conservative candidates for upcoming elections.  Representative White was recently selected by Constituents of Angelina, San Jacinto, Trinity and Tyler Counties to represent them in Texas House District 12.  House District 12 is located in East Texas which was a Ku Klux Klan territory and is a predominately White House District.  Texas is especially proud of the fact that Representative White’s character and the content of his message carried the day and with Tea Party help he won his seat with a substantial margin.  Texas continues to lead the way for all other states in many ways.  Texas and America are entering a period where “Content and Character are indeed more important than Color”.  

Their  primary objective is to break the cycles of dependency and decay that continue to anesthetize and hold captive too many Black families and neighborhoods.  They will  provide continuing series of speakers, seminars, training and practical business support services designed to help Blacks fully assimilate into and be competitive in American society.  Their objective is to teach all Americans the fullness of the history of Blacks in America and to help Blacks gain control of their lives and the destiny of their children.  Only by understanding our full and true history will we all of America be liberated. 

Lessons learned from decades of intrusive Social Engineering, Social Justice Policies and the Welfare State are left out of text books and routinely ignored by those profiting from them, however, they cannot be denied.  One need only take a walk through what is left of our Black communities.  Houston’s “Sugar Hill” became 3rd Ward which was a thriving Black enterprise zone without any government programs or subsidies.  Enter stage left, “The Great Society” which offered “An FDR Chicken In Every Pot” and “An LBJ Check In Every Mail Box”.  Now Houston’s 3rd Ward looks like a war zone and Black families are almost extinct.  Spawned in the ‘60’s, these social engineering experiments, government programs and the arrogant utopian value systems which produced them, continue to produce urban decay, increasing cyclical welfare dependency, increasing tax burdens (for those who pay taxes), the demise of the Black family, fatherless homes, skyrocketing out of wedlock births, more abortions than births, a rise in Black militancy and separatist activity and theft of real political power from all of those living in Black neighborhoods.  

Neither political party has been intellectually honest with itself or Blacks.  The Crispus Attucks Tea Party unleashes the anesthetized political giant rendered helpless by an unending stream of government programs funded by tax dollars.  Programs, welfare checks and the demise of pride and the work ethic have robbed Blacks of their identities and their dignity.  They have devastated Black neighborhoods and rendered them politically and economically impotent.  The Crispus Attucks Tea Party will shift political power away from race bating politicians, games of ‘Three Card Monty” played by highly skilled political operators and race hustlers who base all political activities and campaigns on race.  Operating within Black districts these charlatans have proven incapable of acting in the best interest of those they claim to represent.

The Crispus Attucks Tea Party is part of America’s rapidly growing Tea Party movement.  Starting with Houston’s 3rd Ward, it will focus all of the power amassed across America by the Tea Party movement directly into targeted Black neighborhoods across America.  Yes !! .. Our army operates .“Inside The Belly Of The Beast”.  The Crispus Attucks Tea Party is a non-partisan, neighborhood movement.  It provides a base of operations for the descendants of Black Slavery who realize that welfare checks and government dependency are key elements of their destruction.  The corresponding destructive cycles have destroyed lives, families and their neighborhoods.  Government dependency holds Blacks hostage.  It precludes true liberty and forever blocks full assimilation.  Our mission includes building series of strong neighborhood operating bases made of business people, elected officials, Constituents and Voters, living and working in “hostile areas”.  Intellectually honest Constituents living in Black neighborhoods want them to be safe and to thrive while becoming less dependent on the tax dollars of others.  These Constituents want disciplined classrooms and globally competitive educations for their children.  They want full control of the schools, stores, businesses within their neighborhoods and real futures for their children.  These things will come only when Constituents living in these neighborhoods feel that they are worthy of them. The Crispus Attucks Tea Party will help Blacks take those steps forward.  The Tea Party moves .. “Into The Belly Of The Beast”.

The Crispus Attucks Tea Party promotes and fights for the founding principles originally defined by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  Our core principles include personal responsibility, education, a constrained and transparent government, a balanced budget, self sufficiency, full assimilation and the development of viable Black businesses …. that create jobs.  We identify & vet viable Conservative candidates that are willing to fight for our mission, our principles and the issues we embrace.  Candidates and elected officials who are commitment to American, want to maximize the value American Citizenship, share our values and demonstrate full support of our issue oriented efforts are welcome to support them.  For more information on our inaugural meeting or the Crispus Attucks Tea Party, please send inquiries to [email protected]
This inaugural meeting on January 18th will be a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday and his leadership.  It will also be a celebration of all of those who blazed trails for other Americans and especially for those who have advanced the full assimilation and liberty of the descendants of America’s Black slaves.  America is entering a period in time where “Content and Character are indeed more important than Color” for those who prepare themselves to be competitive.  That too is worth celebrating.

That first meeting will be held at at “This Is It” Soul Food Restaurant, located at 2712 Blodgett, in the heart of Houston’s 3rd Ward.  Supporting “This Is It” and enjoy a buffet dinner at 5:30 pm and socialize with other guests.  The meeting will begin sharply at 6:30.  Guest speakers will include recently elected Texas State House Representative James Earl White, House District 12 and Anita MonCrief, National Spokesperson for AmericanMajority.com.

Liberals Waste No Time Taunting Dick Cheney for Heart Problems

The New York Times ran a rather serious report on Tuesday, regarding former Vice-President Dick Cheney and the new mechanical heart pump he received in July.  The addition of the new pump means that Cheney’s heart will never again beat at full strength, and leaves him with a daunting decision whether or not to have a full heart transplant.

Naturally, juveniles in the liberal media have had a blast with the news.

Political Wire, a supposedly non-partisan political blog led off a post about the heart transplant with this gem:

Cheney May Need Heart Transplant

The New York Times confirms what many of his political opponents always assumed: Dick Cheney has no pulse.

“Mr. Cheney’s heart will never beat at full strength again, doctors say. His new mechanical pump, a partial artificial heart known as a ventricular assist device, leaves patients without a pulse because it pushes blood continuously instead of mimicking the heart’s own beat. Most pulse-less patients feel nothing unusual, but the devices do pose significant risks of infection. They are implanted as a last resort either for permanent use or as a bridge to transplant until a donor heart can be found. Mr. Cheney, who has participated in some of the nation’s toughest decisions for decades, now faces a crucial one of his own: whether to seek a full heart transplant.”
