Palin to honor troops in Colorado with Christian military crusader Boykin

The Centennial Institute conservative think tank at Colorado Christian University is hosting a "Tribute to the Troops" Monday, where the featured speakers will be Sarah Palin and General William "Jerry" Boykin. Although both figures in the past have been associated with an aggressive Christian politics known as Dominionism, Boykin is one of the people at the heart of post-9/11 U.S. religious militarism. For years he has been giving talks in which he conjures a Christian America targeted by hundreds of millions of violent Islamic jihadists, rallying support for the most hawkish variety of anti-terror U.S. foreign and domestic policies. If Boykin's past presentations are any measure, attendees at Monday's rally are in for tough talk peppered with statistics that sound official and scary but that fail to stand up to the kind of mathematical fact checking you can do in your head as you listen to him speak.

Railing on Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the health-policy adviser at the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, for his support of rationing health care and what she saw as Obama sponsored takeovers of U.S. industries, Bachmann said that the only way to escape the "tyranny" imposed by the last 18 months of Democratic rule was to elect constitutional conservatives to Congress.
