Dr David Barton Should Christians Support Obama?

This man was on Dr. Charles Stanley’s program “In Touch” as a guest speaker.

Dr. David Barton is more of a historian than a Biblical speaker, but very famous for his knowledge of historical facts as well as Biblical truths.

Dr. David Barton – on Obama

Respect the Office? Yes.

Respect the Man in the Office? No, I am sorry to say.

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama.

Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama!

I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it.

I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President!

Why am I doing this?

It is because:

– I do not share Obama’s vision or value system for America ;

– I do not share his Abortion beliefs;

– I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;

– I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make$150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);

– I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;

– I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;

– I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;

– I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than our American Citizens who need help;

– I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;

– I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;

– I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);

– I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America ;

– I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East ; and

– I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.


Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right!

For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!

They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country!

They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!

They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years!

They have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country!

They have made every effort to remove the name of GOD or Jesus Christ from our Society!

They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code!

They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!

Unite behind Obama? Never!

I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!

PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!

Majority rules in America , and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and his “goals for America …”

I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country! Any more compromise is more defeat!

I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-GOD crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America !

GOD bless you and GOD bless our Country!

Jim Rose Remembers Radio On WHISNews21 Oct 19




When Russell Lee Moore, aka Russ Knight, is a DJ in Atlanta, GA its PD Bill Drake labels him forever as The Weird Beard.

In the early 1960s, during our school days in Dallas, TX everyone listens to The Weird Beard on KLIF-1190. While on KLIF, Russ brings in a 62% share Hooper rating.

From 1971-72, as a newscaster/mobile news reporter on KBOX-1480 in Big D, it is an honor to be on the other side of a double-pane plate glass window in the KBOX newsroom from the legendary Weird Beard, Russ Knight.

He not only is a radio legend in my home town Dallas, TX but Russ also is a perfect gentleman.

While on KBOX-1480 in very early 1972, it is my sad duty to announce the passing of the great KLIF-1190 and later KBOX-1480 newscaster Joe Long who many declare has The Voice of God. Now, Russ The Weird Beard Knight is no longer with us as he dies at 80 on Friday, October 12, 2012.


TEXAS FIRST AUTOBAHN OPENS In November 1974, German electronic band Kraftwerk releases its fourth studio album, Autobahn, which we spin as a new tune on Top 40 KFJZ-1270 in Ft. Worth, TX. In the late 1920s, the idea for Germany’s autobahn first appears.

The autobahn high speed road is first known as a Kraftfahrstraße (motor vehicle road). In 2012, Germany’s autobahn’s total length stretches to 7,982 miles.

Not to be outdone, the state of Texas’ own version of Germany’s autobahn, TX SH 130, shoots automobiles from Austin to San Antonio like rockets with a speed limit of 85 mph.

Many of us west Houston citizens scoot faster than that just winging our way to Memorial City Mall. TX SH 130 is free to travel until November 11, 2012 when a toll fee of 15 cents per mile begins.

Spanish company Cintra constructs TX SH 130 at a reported $1.3 billion with a contract to operate it for the next 50 years. So goes it for our local economy.


LONGTIME NY SOUND STUDIO IN CRISIS New owners of historic East Coast sound-mixing facility, Sound One, which is a fixture for decades among filmmakers from Woody Allen to Martin Scorsese, just about slams its doors shut last week. In September 2012, Discovery Communications sells Sound One, which is among NYC’s filmmaking elite located in the historic midtown Brill Building, to Miami-based Empire Investment Holdings. Last week, CSS Studios, the holding company that owns Sound One and Soundelux in Los Angeles, CA lays off most workers and pretty much closes the operation. This decision wreaks havoc on many projects. Tom Fleischman, Oscar-winning sound mixer and former employee of Sound One, sighs: The impact that this is going to have on New York is devastating. For a film community as small as New York it is a huge loss. It is like losing General Motors. Empire scrambles to locate new investors, plus a new business plan.

FRANK HALEY [News Director KKIM FM 102.9] (Albuquerque, NM) Subject: Russ “The Weird Beard” Knight RIP. Jim, did you see this on FaxeBook??? Frank ‘Hi folks…this is Stephen, Russ’s oldest son. Russ “The Weird Beard” Knight has made his final air check. He passed away on October 12, 2012 at 80 years of age. He had a great life, and went as peacefully as possible. Will post more photos and tidbits as time permits. Thank you all.’


GRADY MCALLISTER (Houston, TX) Subject: Russ Knight. Jim, Have you heard anything about the death of Russ Knight, the Weird Beard? I don’t know if you were in Houston at the time, but he was one of the main KILT DJ’s in the mid-sixties, mainly at night. I was advised of his death by a reliable source in a Facebook instant message. I have seen nothing official or in a real article. The message…advised me that he had died on or about October 12. I don’t usually get involved with obituaries, but this one is important to the history of Houston radio. My source is Jay Marks. Maybe you know him and would like to contact him. R. Grady McAllister, M.S. (Training & Occupational Education) / [ /]


JOE FORD (Houston, TX) Subject: Russ Knight. Hi Jim, So sad to hear of Russ Knight’s passing. He was quite a guy and a mentor to me when I was just a wide eyed kid down in Corpus Christi, Texas. At the time, he called himself Russ Moore and helped me, a pesky 18 year old groupie, get my first radio job. I had no training, no clue, no guidance…but Russ took me under his wing and I copied everything he did, got my foot in the door, and thanks to 50,000 watts of KATR, I was offered a job in Houston at KILT & KNUZ. Pretty funny. I decided to go to KNUZ because they offered me $50 a month more than McLendon. Big bucks in those days. Russ and I kept in touch, even sent each other messages on the air when we worked across the dial from each other during the highly competitive Beatle years. We shared some good times in New York at a couple of Billboard conventions. When we both got inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame in 2003, I loved sharing some of the insane things we did at KATR together. Dickie Rosenfeld was the Sales Manager, Bill LIghtfoot the GM and Jim McKrell was P.D. It was like working at WKRP. An insane movie! What an education!!! Anyway, for his persona as The Weird Beard and all his exterior craziness on the air, he was a gentle soul, a great jock and a fine man. To his family, his son Stephen, I extend my deepest sympathy. RIP, Russ. Joe Ford

GARY DELAUNE (San Antonio, TX) Subject: Russ “The Weird Beard” Knight RIP. Didn’t know if you knew this or not. I didn’t until Frank’s email. GD ‘Did you see this on FaceBook?? Frank (from KLIF [1190] days in Dallas in the ’60’s)’ ‘Hi folks…this is Stephen, Russ’s oldest son. Russ “The Weird Beard” Knight has made his final air check. He passed away on October 12, 2012, at 80 years of age. He had a great life, and went as peacefully as possible.’ (


Trivia Question:

What situation fires up Maurice Williams to write his huge hit tune Stay?

Trivia Answer:

In 1953 when he is just 15 years old, Maurice Williams attempts to convince his girlfriend to not go home at 10 pm as she is supposed to.

He loses the argument, but his quandary gives him the idea to write the words to the song Stay. Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs record Stay which zooms to #1 with sales of over 8 million copies.

After the song’s royalties begin to roll in, bet that he can not only convince his girlfriend to stay after 10pm but may not be able to get her to leave.
