After Pressure From CAIR, Disneyland Allows MUSLIM Park Worker To Wear Hijab

Disneyland allows park worker to wear religious scarf at work

Los Angeles Times

Disneyland has agreed to allow a company intern to wear her religious headscarf at work, according to a Muslim rights group that intervened after the woman was told she would have to work in the stockroom.

The Chicago woman was hired as a vacation planner after a phone interview. When she arrived in California for her internship orientation, she was asked by Disney representatives why she had not mentioned her hijab, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

The woman was told she would have to take a position with less guest interaction, working in the stockroom until a “customized uniform” could be made, according to the group.

She was told that making the customized uniform would take about five months, approximately the length of her entire internship, according to CAIR.

The group intervened, and after a week Disney agreed to accommodate the woman in her original position as a vacation planner, it said.

Vacation planners are costumed employees, whose outfits include an optional baseball-style cap. Unlike other employees, the worker in question will not have the option to take off her hat while wearing her head scarf, Brown said. Vacation planners sell tickets in a box office.

Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Disneyland Resort, said the employee would be allowed to wear a fitted blue head scarf with a beret-style hat worn over it.

Vacation planners are costumed employees, whose outfits include an optional baseball-style cap. Unlike other employees, the worker in question will not have the option to take off her hat while wearing her head scarf, Brown said. Vacation planners sell tickets in a box office.

"Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has a long history of accommodating a variety of religious requests from cast members of all faiths with more than 200 accommodations made over the last three years," Brown said. “And this instance was no different."]

The organization has received other complaints over the years from Muslim women who said they have been denied "front-stage jobs" with Disney because of their hijabs.

A Muslim woman who works as a hostess at a Disney-owned restaurant filed a discrimination complaint earlier this year, saying she has repeatedly been sent home without pay for refusing to remove her headscarf at work.

Imane Boudlal, a hostess at Storyteller's Cafe in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, said she was told she would have to remove her hijab or take a job working out of public view.

That case is ongoing, according to CAIR.

UPDATE: Disney officials said they in the process of accomodating the intern's religious requirement and had already come up with a design when CAIR became involved in the case.]

How disappointing! We don't go to Disneyland to be forced to look at someone's religious attire, we go to escape reality!

Will a burqua be next?

CAIR is a terrorist supporting organization that is stepping beyond its borders.

Obama Pressures Pastors To Use Sunday Sermons To Say Obamacare Ordered By God

Pastors For ObamaCare?

If the White House office of faith-based initiatives is going to be used as propaganda unit, it might as well be shut down.

The Wall Street Journal

I was George W. Bush’s director of faith-based initiatives. Imagine what would have happened had I proposed that he use that office to urge thousands of religious leaders to become “validators” of the Iraq War?

I can tell you two things that would have happened immediately. First, President Bush would have fired me—and rightly so—for trying to politicize his faith-based office. Second, the American media would have chased me into the foxhole Saddam Hussein had vacated.

Yet on Tuesday President Obama and his director of faith-based initiatives convened exactly such a meeting to try to control political damage from the unpopular health-care law.

Obama instructed faith leaders to treat the new law as settled fact and use their perches of power to convey the final message to congregants and friends. “The debate in Washington is over, the Affordable Care Act is now law…I think all of you can be really important validators and trusted resources for friends and neighbors, to help explain what’s now available to them.”

“Get out there and spread the word,” reported the president as saying on a conference call with leaders of faith-based and community groups. “I think all of you can be really important validators and trusted resources for friends and neighbors, to help explain what’s now available to them.”

Since then, there’s been nary a peep from the press.

According to the White House website, the faith-based office exists “to more effectively serve Americans in need.” I guess that now means Americans in need of Democratic talking points on health care. Do we really want taxpayer-funded bureaucrats mobilizing ministers to go out to all the neighborhoods and spread the good news of universal coverage?

Tuesday’s call is no small disappointment to those of us who thought Mr. Obama deserved credit for keeping the faith-based initiatives office at the White House at a time when many fellow Democrats wanted him to put it in the Smithsonian. I for one gave him the benefit of the doubt when he appointed as the office’s leader a Pentecostal minister who had served as a director of outreach during his 2008 campaign, as well as when he punted to the Justice Department the thorny question of whether a charity could take religious beliefs into account when hiring.

Nearly 20 months later, however, the faith-based office has failed to be a voice within the administration for compassion. Poverty rates are at record highs, and the economy is producing new waves of homeless families. Meanwhile the faith-based office in the White House and those in 11 federal agencies have no record, no results, and no relevance.

This operation stands in stark contrast to the priority Mr. Bush placed on this office. Every year, he used the grand stage of the State of the Union address to launch new compassion programs. In his first six months in office, he pushed for a vote in Congress to end discrimination against religious charities. New programs to mentor the children of prisoners, expand choices for addicts seeking treatment, and combat the spread of AIDS were launched. They have since transformed countless lives.

Some allege that Mr. Bush pioneered the art of politicizing faith. In fact, his faith-based initiatives were remarkably bipartisan. I am a Democrat, and I worked with more Democratic members of Congress than Republican ones.

Any member of Congress who invited me or my office to visit a faith-based program or attend a meeting in their district was welcomed. If you polled the attendees at the dozens of conferences our office held throughout the country, Mr. Bush likely would not have fared well. It didn’t matter. To those who participated it wasn’t about politics. It was about learning how to run more effective programs and help more people in need.

Mr. Obama is within his legal rights to engage our country’s spiritual leaders in his effort to sell health-care reform. But he should not use the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships to do so.

If he cannot restore its focus to promoting successful programs that serve our country’s poor, then he should do the decent thing and close the faith-based initiatives office.

Mr. Towey was director of the White House Office of Faith-based and Community Initiatives for President George W. Bush from 2002-2006.

Wild Thing's comment.......

If Obamacare was pushed at our church on Sunday morning I would get up an walk out and I won’t be subtle about it, and never go back.

Army Judge Tells Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin: Shut Up And Be Punished!

Army judge tells officer: Shut up and be punished!

Defense counsel warns 'fair trial' impossible under military rulings



An Army judge has made it "impossible" for a career medical officer to get a fair hearing on charges he refused to deploy to Afghanistan because of concern that obeying orders in the chain of command under an ineligible commander in chief would be illegal, his attorney says.

The rulings came today from Col. Denise Lind, who, in effect, told Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin to pound sand. Rocks actually. He faces up to four years at hard labor if convicted in his case.

"We got absolutely slammed today," said Paul R. Jensen, lead counsel for the defense. "It's impossible for us to have a fair trial under these rulings."
Jensen continued, "The judge did what she thought was right, but the result is to deprive us of any opportunity to have a defense."

Lakin believes any order issued under Obama's authority as commander in chief of the armed forces may not be valid because his eligibility to serve as president is unproven. After fruitlessly requesting the Army to verify Obama's eligibility to serve as president, Lakin wrote directly to Obama asking for proof of eligibility.

But without a response, Lakin decided it was his duty to refuse an order to deploy with his unit as part of Obama's Afghanistan surge. As one of the defense briefs states, he "... [took] the distasteful route of inviting his own court martial."

Note: A legal-defense fund has been set up for Lt. Col. Terry Lakin. Click for information.

In her decision, Lind, acting as judge in the case, censored the last remaining arguments Lakin planned to make in his defense: motive and duty. Lakin had intended to explain his motive for disobeying the order and contend that it was his duty as a good soldier to disobey orders that he believes to be illegal.

The defense also planned to call as witnesses Ambassador Alan Keyes and retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney. Keyes was to explain the constitutional issues involved in the case, and McInerney was to talk about the training soldiers receive regarding when they should question and even disobey orders.

Lind was following up on her rulings from Sept. 2, when she rejected defense plans to introduce evidence concerning Obama's eligibility. The defense also requested for Lakin's defense documents referencing Obama's birth records on file in Hawaii, but Lind refused to allow that either, noting that providing the documents might prove "embarrassing" to Obama.

"Our arms were cut off last time," said Jensen. "Our legs are being cut off this time."

In rejecting Lakin's right to discovery of Obama birth documents, Lind joined a host of other judges – in civilian courts – who have refused to allow plaintiffs suing Obama to obtain his birth records. Jensen told WND he had hoped the court would permit Lakin to go to discovery, because Lakin is the defendant in a criminal case and has the right to mount a full defense.

In objecting to the participation of Keyes and McInerney and the presentation of Lakin's planned arguments, the prosecution argued that all issues related to Obama's eligibility, Lakin's motives and the good soldier doctrine were "irrelevant."

"We have to have the opportunity to present some defense!" Jensen countered.

Just before Lind recessed the hearing to prepare her decision, Jensen asked rhetorically whether the government intended to allow him to call any witnesses at all and thundered, "This is all we had left!"

Jensen's pleas fell on deaf ears. Less than two hours after the court recessed following arguments, Lind returned to the bench to render a lengthy, detailed decision. Reading in a dry monotone, Lind reaffirmed her Sept. 2 decision and ruled out discussions of motive and duty.

Lind, with her rulings, effectively has restricted the scope of Lakin's trial to what the government wanted: the simple questions of whether the officer had received orders to deploy to Afghanistan and whether he complied.

Neither of these facts is in dispute

But Jensen said the trial will not end the case.

"We will look to appellate courts for justice. With these constraints it's not possible here," he said.
When Lind made her earlier rulings, denying Lakin access to potentially exculpatory evidence in his case, Judge Roy Moore, who battled political correctness as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court a decade ago, said Lind has forgotten the Constitution.

Judge Moore, who now operates through the Foundation for Moral Law, has personal experience with challenging the powers-that-be to follow the Constitution. His dispute centered on a Ten Commandments display he put in a state building to recognize the God who inspired the Founders of America. He ultimately was removed from office by those who followed a federal judge's order that the Ten Commandments be removed without questioning whether it was right.

"The highest law in this country is not the order of the Supreme Court of the U.S., not the order of the commander in chief, or any subordinate officer," Moore said.

Instead, it is the Constitution, Moore explained, which in Lakin's case demands that the president be a "natural born citizen."

There have been dozens of lawsuits and challenges over the fact that Obama's eligibility never has been documented. The "Certification of Live Birth" his campaign posted online is a document that Hawaii has made available to those not born in the state.

"Lt. Col. Lakin has every right to question the lawfulness of the orders of the commander in chief," Moore has said.

It doesn't matter, he said, that orders come from a colonel, or a general or even the Pentagon.

"The same thing applies in the military as in the judicial system," he explained. "The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it's not the order of a higher officer, not the order of a judge."

Lakin has been charged by the Army with missing a movement, disobeying a lawful order and dereliction of duty.

Lind's first round of censorship decisions came just days after a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general who commanded forces armed with nuclear weapons said the disclosure of Obama's documentation is not just critical to Lakin's defense, but to the preservation of the nation itself.

The vehement statements came in an affidavit from McInerney, a Fox News military analyst, that was disclosed by an organization generating support for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin.

McInerney, who retired in 1994 after serving as vice commander in chief of USAF forces in Europe, commander of the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing and assistant vice chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, among other positions, said the chain of command issue is critical, since officers are obligated both to follow orders and to disobey illegal orders.

"Officers in the United States military service are – and must be – trained that they owe their highest allegiance to the United States Constitution," he said in the affidavit.
"There can be no question that it is absolutely essential to good order and discipline in the military that there be no break in the unified chain of command, from the lowliest E-1 up to and including the commander in chief who is under the Constitution, the president of the United States. As military officers, we owe our ultimate loyalty not to superior officers or even to the president, but rather, to the Constitution."

He explained "good order and discipline requires not blind obedience to all orders but instead requires officers to judge – sometimes under great adversity – whether an order is illegal.

"The president of the United States, as the commander in chief, is the source of all military authority," he said. "The Constitution requires the president to be a natural born citizen in order to be eligible to hold office. If he is ineligible under the Constitution to serve in that office that creates a break in the chain of command of such magnitude that its significance can scarcely be imagined."

Lakin is being supported by the American Patriot Foundation, which said the affidavit is for use in Lakin's trial, scheduled Oct. 13-15.

Lakin is a physician and in his 18th year of service in the Army. He posted a video asking for the court-martial to determine Obama's eligibility.

He is board certified in family medicine and occupational and environmental medicine. He has been recognized for his outstanding service as a flight surgeon for year-long tours in Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan. He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and recognized in 2005 as one of the Army Medical Department's outstanding flight surgeons.

The controversy stems from the Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, which states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

Wild Thing's comment...........

There is a list of people to blame which goes around a city block for not putting this matter to rest years before Obama ran for his first public office. He was not properly vetted by the Democratic party, the election board in Chicago, Illinois, DC, etc. IMO this whole thing has been deliberate and done by the left, Soros backed and probably Saudi like we have read about to get their man in office.

Obamaism...that Obama won, so nobody is allowed to say anything, anywhere, anyhow.

The judge noted “that providing the documents might prove ‘embarrassing’ to Obama.”

So everyone is entitled to a fair trial except when it might prove embarrassing to Obama?

Michelle: I've Had Enough

Michelle: I've Had Enough


"I've had ENOUGH!" After two years in the White House fishbowl, fed up first lady Michelle Obama sobbed those emotional words to her husband during a tense confrontation.

In a blockbuster ENQUIRER exclusive, well-placed Washington, D.C., insiders have revealed behind-the-scenes details of President Barack Obama's heated face-to- face with his 46-year-old wife - a spat that erupted over headline-making comments attributed to her in a revealing new book.

According to the book, Michelle told France's first lady Carla Bruni Sarkozy, 41, that she absolutely detests her role as America's first lady, blasting it as "hell," and admitting: "I can't stand it!"

During the Obama's quarrel, "Michelle collapsed in tears and even threatened to divorce Barack if he seeks a second term as president," a source in the nation's capital told The ENQUIRER.
"At one point, Michelle was heard yelling, 'I hate you for dragging me through all this…I've had enough!'"

Another D.C. insider confirmed details of the fight, telling The ENQUIRER that the screaming match occurred after the first family returned to Washington following their vacation in Martha's Vineyard with daughters Malia and Sasha.

The next day Barack was NOT wearing his wedding ring and despite official denials, there's "trouble ahead", insiders told The Enquirer. ( full story in the purchased enquirer at your market)

Wild Thing's comment.......

I don't normally quote from or use an article from the Enquirer. LOL But I do remember The National Enquirer broke the John Edwards' infidelity story. The Enquirer also was the most correct on OJ, and found the photo of him wearing the shoes he said he never owned. So it very well might be true who knows.

She’s not the only one sick of her being in the White House, that’s for damn sure. I know I sure am sick of BOTH of them being in our White House.

Just an idea Michelle, call a press conference and reveal that your hubby was truly born in Kenya. You’ll be home before ya know it. They should never have made it to the White House. Had there been a real press in this country to air their dirty laundry before the ‘08 election, they would be in Chicago doing dirty deals with Emanuel and Axelrod.

Just a hunch but could this be a prelude to Obama NOT seeking reelection in 2012? The Dems have realized that he is unelectable and they will lose BIG if he is the nominee.

One Man’s Struggle with PTSD by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

One Man’s Struggle with PTSD

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

What follows is a story akin to what anyone who served in combat; as a firefighter or policemen might have experienced.

Colonel Washington Sanchez, USA (Ret) is one of those exceptional human beings who when he sees a need or is called upon, steps forward without flinching. In a way Washington reminds me of Isaiah, albeit not in the same setting or context as the Prophet, when he wrote in Isaiah 6:8,

“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here [am] I; send me.”

Although I don’t know it for a fact, I believe Washington’s entire life is marked by that characteristic; and, I can state authoritatively that it is true for the past fifteen years.

We became acquainted in the Regional Office of the Florida Department of Banking and Finance where he volunteered his service. Among other things, at my request, he shared insights with me on race and race relations about which I had lifelong interest but lacked the candid discussion to which Attorney General Eric Holder was referring in his infamous remarks that included,

“Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial.”

Race was not on the horizon for me during my vocation as a U.S. Marine. During that era I gave no thought to skin color although I was sensitive to racial issues when they arose. My approach was to treat them as leadership and disciplinary issues rather than racial issues. (Aside: In my opinion too much is made of race and too little of leadership.) But after retirement, in the so called, “real world” I learned that race baiting and race were staples for politicians interested in acquiring and exercising power.

Washington was a Godsend when I was Regional Director of Banking and Finance. He illuminated my thinking and answered many questions. Suffice it to note that Colonels Sanchez and Pappas have been tested and forged as brothers in the finest sense of that word. In this essay I want to share a short vignette of this great American whom I am honored to know.

September 8, 2010 was as hot and humid a day as one might expect in Birmingham, Alabama. My friend Washington stood in the sweltering heat, (dressed in a coat and tie, sweat beading on his now fully gray head hidden underneath a Purple Heart Cap, and no doubt it was also running down the middle of his back), before a small group of family and friends 40 years to the day after Specialist 4th Class, James “Butch” Perkins was tragically killed during a North Vietnamese assault on his artillery battery in Vietnam. This day’s event had been long in coming.

That fateful day in 1970 Washington, along with everyone in the Battery except “Butch,” survived. After he completed that tour of duty he went to other military assignments that culminated in nearly 28 years of service, and promotion to the grade of Colonel before he retired. In the intervening years before retirement and since he shouldered the discomforting knowledge that he had not successful in preventing the loss of one of his soldiers, a man not that different than Washington, with similar dreams, hopes and aspirations. Like others who have experienced similar events Washington thought he had locked tight that compartment of his mind.

Oh, it wasn’t that he didn’t remember he did indeed, vividly! But he chose not to consciously dwell on it. Yet, despite his efforts to forget, life’s events would occasionally force the compartment open and he would relive the day, each time the memory of it as vivid as the event itself. All the while the same loss haunted, raised questions and inflicted grinding pain, doubt and unresolved agony on Butch’s family, brother, and wife owing to a lack of clear information about the circumstances of Butch’s death in what was definitely not a popular war and Washington was aware that they stood there in the shadows of his mind.

Now, at long last Washington and other members from Battery “A”, 3rd Battalion, 18th Field Artillery Regiment, Americal Division gathered with members of “Butch’s” family and their friends to conduct a memorial event dedicated to the memories of “Butch,” but as any psychologist knows, it was as much for the assembled group as it was for those memories of “Butch.”

Everyone in direct combat sees combat casualties and death; that is the inherent tragic nature of war. Washington’s first experience with it was in 1965 during his first tour in Vietnam. At the time he was a 2nd Lieutenant, Forward Artillery Observer assigned to an infantry cavalry unit. His first combat action was in the infamous Ia Drang Valley where he stopped two North Vietnamese Army bullets. Earlier he had seen his Company Commander take a round in forehead and watched as the Company Commander’s radio operator died from the shock of witnessing that event. Washington was evacuated and treated in a U.S. Hospital on the Island of Okinawa for months, and after recovering he returned to Vietnam to complete his one year tour there. This time he joined a unit that had a very experienced company commander. Among other things, the commander taught his unit defensive tactics and Washington never forgot them.

Vietnam era service was different that WWII and Korea. Then, one served for the duration, but in Vietnam some would have made a career of cycling in and out periodically to get a proverbial “X” in the appropriate career box. Then, as now in the Middle East if one remained beyond the initial reserve contract or was a regular, one would inevitably go back. So, after a few years of stateside duty Washington returned to Vietnam in1970 for the second time.

He had been a Captain for a while and shortly after arriving back in Vietnam was selected for promotion to Major. His was assigned to the Americal Division as a Division Artillery Assistant Operations Officer with the 3rd Battalion, 18th Field Artillery Regiment or “3/18 FA.” 3/18 FA consisted of a group of five batteries: Headquarters Battery responsible for command, operations, administration and Service Battery responsible for logistic support. There were three operational firing batteries designated “A,” “B,” and “C.” The firing batteries consisted of two 8 inch (that’s the diameter of the bore) howitzers and two 175 millimeter guns per battery. Additionally, some batteries had 105 millimeter howitzers, 81mm mortars, vehicle mounted quad four 50 caliber machine guns and 40 millimeter anti-aircraft guns as well as M-79 grenade launchers. The 105s were equipped with offensive rounds consisting of general purpose, high explosive incendiary and smoke as well as defensive flechette rounds. A flechette round is comprised of thousands of barbs and fired point blank for close-in defense. Mortars were used for both offensive and defensive operations. In the offensive mode mortar crews fire explosive or white phosphorous marking rounds and could do the same or fire rounds for nighttime illumination during defensive operations. Finally, everyone had a personal weapon, either an M-16 rifle or a .45 caliber pistol. One might say that a firing battery was “armed to the teeth.”

One morning the Battalion Executive Officer called Washington aside and told him that the Battalion Commander wanted him to take over one of the firing batteries. He flushed hot at the thought of himself as a selected Major being assigned to a battery, a Captain’s billet. He wanted to remain as Acting Operations Officer as a Captain in a Major’s billet rather than go the other direction. He winced hard at the thought but on the other hand if it was important enough for the Battalion Commander to pick him for the assignment, he quickly decided that it was important enough to salute and do the job. It didn’t take long before his new “home” was Battery “A” located at Landing Zone (LZ) Cindy. Battery “A” was the northernmost of three firing batteries in the Battalion that was arrayed north to south, some twenty miles apart and inland about twenty miles from the coast.

LZ Cindy was a part of a small complex of several military and Para-military installations located in and around the District Capital of Tra Bong. The village, albeit the District Capital was situated in a medium sized east west river valley. At this point the Song Tra Bong River ran due east and west. This geography made the river a nice “highway” for enemy movement from the mountains in the west ranging into Laos to the coastal lowlands along the South China Sea to the east. The river emptied into the South China Sea north of Quang Ngai City and south of the Marine Base at Chu Lai.

The Tra Bong area was pretty heavily defended by American and Army of the Republic of South Viet Nam (ARVN) forces. Battery “A” was right in the middle of it all, with a Green Beret base camp across a single lane dirt road to the east and a Military Assistance Command Vietnam (MACV) Headquarters Group several hundred meters to the south bordering on a long prefabricated airstrip for twin engine Caribou aircraft that re-supplied the Battery. A handful of American soldiers occupied a hilltop to the immediate north (Searchlight Hill. It was called “Searchlight” because those soldiers could turn night into day with their high intensity searchlight.) on the opposite side of the Song Tra Bong River. This area, at least on paper, gave all the appearance of being heavily defended and by all accounts was, but events would soon prove that large numbers as in this case, meant little.

When he arrived at the Battery in February of 1970 his first impression was that there was a lot that needed to be done. Initial inspection revealed that the Battery was not well prepared to repel a ground attack; and it didn’t take long before he learned that “A” Battery also suffered from an acute lack of combat veterans. Most soldiers, numbering perhaps a hundred men were on their first tour and did not have much field experience. Although he was troubled by the overall lack of experience he reflected on the defensive lessons he had learned years earlier, then set about strengthening the Battery’s posture.

Given his earlier experiences, he came to Battery “A” with probably more combat experience and likewise he respected the enemy’s capabilities more than anyone else. Suddenly, he felt alone with the full weight of the military axiom “responsible for everything his unit did or failed to do” resting squarely on his shoulders. He also knew that secondary to the mission, he was responsible for safeguarding the lives of those approximately 100 men.

Winter, if you can call it that in Vietnam melted into spring and summer. Time passed quickly and the Battery settled into a routine of firing “H and I” that is, Harassing and Interdiction fire missions at night while devoting its days to improving the overall defensive posture.

With the arrival of summer came a changed mission and the course of the war. U.S. ground forces changed from offensive to defensive operations with the additional mission to support the ARVN. “Vietnamization,” not much different than contemporary efforts in Afghanistan, was the new word around the “campus.” Americans began what proved to be a disastrous move of turning the war over to the ARVN and he correctly sensed that the Tra Bong area might well be involved in an early test of the new strategy. In early September, 1970 the Green Beret unit across the one lane road to the east departed turning the concrete reinforced base camp over to an ARVN Border Ranger Battalion. If the new arrangement could be disrupted and/or set to flight it would be a significant demoralizing effect and a major setback for the Allies. North Vietnamese commanders were well aware of this and the fact that Tra Bong was a politically important District Capital undoubtedly added to its appeal as a target.

It wasn’t long before the North Vietnamese would put to test the new strategy in a dramatic way. On September 7th, 1970, Washington learned that the Battery’s defenses along the southwest corner of the firebase had been compromised. Blasting caps had been cut from claymores but the wires were replaced to give the illusion of being armed; and safety pins were inserted into trip flare mechanisms. It was excellent sabotage work on the part of North Vietnamese infiltrators, but fortunately, Washington and his men caught it, just in time. It concerned him greatly that they were so vulnerable on an entire sector of the firebase; and, he quickly surmised that they were going to be attacked. He did not have to wait long.

That afternoon working parties corrected the perimeter deficiencies and that evening he doubled the guard putting the Battery on alert. The North Vietnamese did not disappoint them because at 4 a.m. on September 8th, as the saying goes, “all hell broke loose.” The entire area exploded with rocket and mortar fire followed by a violent ground assault on the ARVN Ranger group, MACV group, and firebase Cindy. The ARVN Ranger Battalion was quickly overrun, its ammo dump blown and the entire reinforced concrete base camp destroyed beyond repair. MACV Headquarters was mortared for nearly half an hour then overrun and the District Chief and his family were killed. Meanwhile an infantry frontal assault was reported on the southwest corner of the firebase perimeter and enemy elements were also spotted along the northwestern perimeter. Things were in a word, “dicey.”

The Fire Direction Center (FDC) was the Battery’s nerve center. Radios and land line communication to the perimeter bunkers were centralized there. The radio was vital to the Battery’s ability to request support from Division. During an attack, in addition to designating a place for everyone to go, the defensive plan was to protect the Battery’s vital area. Consequently once an attack started the FDC was immediately locked down for the duration; no one was allowed in or out.

Specialist 4th Class James “Butch” Perkins returned from Hawaii R&R on September 7th coming in on one of the Caribou resupply aircraft. As shift leader he immediately went back to work with his shift ending around two a.m. on September 8th. It was a common practice to hang around to discuss events, and at that hour when things were generally quiet to “shoot the bull.” “Butch” eventually left the FDC returning to his bunker to get some sleep and shortly thereafter the attack came. In the first few minutes while the situation was still confused and developing, “Butch” evidently decided to return to the FDC where in the darkness he was mistaken for an enemy combatant and was shot at the FDC entrance. Despite extensive efforts to save his life “Butch” died that morning of his wounds. Unbeknownst to anyone at the time, the same shot that killed “Butch” inflicted a lasting psychological wound on Washington; he kept it to himself.

The attack by elements of the 406th NVA Sapper Battalion was intense and after it was over Washington surveyed the damage finding that the Battery was struck by more than 100 mortar rounds and hit by extensive heavy automatic weapons fire. Fortunately, the Battery was ready and his efforts to improve Battery defenses proved invaluable in minimizing damage. When compared to nearby forces the Battery suffered the least, took a prisoner and found evidence that the friendlies had inflicted numerous NVA casualties that had been drug away. The perimeter remained secure and although there was NVA blood all over the place, no American soldiers were wounded, and there were no other fatalities, as the news would report might summarize, “there was just one soldier killed in the action.” That “just one soldier” was “Butch” Perkins who was so tragically mistaken for the enemy.

Most would think they were fortunate since the Battery survived such a violent attack and got off so relatively light. However, for Washington there was no joy or feeling of elation, only remorse and sadness because he lost a good soldier. “Butch’s” death was a tragedy that has bothered him ever since. “Butch” returned home in a flag draped coffin to a grieving family and widow while he went on to a full and successful Army career, serving in Europe and the U.S., and never looked back or gave a second thought to Viet Nam, except! Except when something would trigger it, to that fateful night when a great American soldier lost his life. When it happened, Washington would flush hot, twisting to escape the unseen enemy until he could force the event back and out of sight in the dark recesses of his mind.

The South Vietnamese fought a good fight until the Congress cut funding in 1975 and the end for that beleaguered, free people came quickly. The rest is history, but that didn’t change the physical and psychological scars inflicted on Washington who retired as a Colonel with almost 28 years of service in the early 1990s.

Despite what might have appeared as a normal and happy life, the layers of protection that he had so carefully applied against the shock and pain of loss began to involuntarily peel back. In quiet moments he would reflect on his life in the Army and would turn over in his mind what he might have done differently to achieve a better outcome for everyone…especially for “Butch” Perkins. At the time he thought he had covered all the possibilities, but not so, one had slipped, he had failed and it never let him rest.

He wasn’t even conscious of his effort to keep it bottled up but buried it with a variety of activities. One of them was becoming involved with a real estate investment group; another was as a volunteer at the Regional Office of Banking and Finance (which is where we met) and to focus on his now widely separated family.

Washington and I became close friends through our work. Among other things, we were asked to participate in a Statewide Task Force whose charter was to study and recommend legislation that would address the issue of Abandoned and Neglected Cemeteries statewide. It was a successful effort. Not long after that project was complete I was asked to temporarily head up one of Florida’s if not the nation’s, most challenging Districts involving Children and Families. I asked Washington if he would go along and he did. Although he never spoke about it, in retrospect I have no doubt he did so in large part to keep the “guilt and pain” genie in the bottle. Eventually though it would emerge to consume his marriage and separate his family.

One might think that Washington would become a broken man, brought down by an insidious enemy that attacked from within the confines of his mind. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or “PTSD,” manifests its effects in as many different ways as there are people afflicted by it. He suffered much over the years, yet Washington managed with steadfast determination and dignity, finding ways to overcome. He chose to expend himself extensively in the service and interest of others rather than escape through alcohol, narcotics or collapse into extended depression and withdrawal. Now, years later, he is remarried and has managed to live an exemplary life, providing an excellent example of how to deal with his own pain and help alleviate the stress and pain suffered by others.

The Memorial event in Birmingham on September 8th went far to heal Washington and other troubled lives and to fill in missing information for the family. Washington at long last was able to directly confront and deal with the “demon” that had been closeted in the deepest recesses of his mind. His excitement and expressions of relief incident to working on and conducting the Memorial Event have gone a long way in healing those psychological wounds that have been festering for forty years. Washington’s struggle was unique and personal; he has overcome much although there remains much progress to be made.

The good news is that the Veterans Administration has established PTSD treatment programs and help for Veterans suffering from the unseen PTSD enemy. Wittingly or otherwise Washington did on his own what others have not been able to do. If one needs help it is available and those needing it should go to the following website, for acute cases contact the VA at 1-800-273-8255 or seek help through the nearest VA Vet Center Counselor.

Obama Was Not Constitutionally Certified To Run For President! - DOCUMENTED!

Hawaii Dems button-lipped on Obama eligibility status

Doc missing statement candidate 'qualified' under U.S. Constitution


It long has been documented that when Barack Obama was picked by the Democratic Party to be its 2008 presidential candidate, only one state – Hawaii – was sent a document from Nancy Pelosi certifying that he was qualified under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

Now a series of blogs reports are heating up the issue again, this time revealing documents that showed it apparently was Hawaii's local Democratic Party that refused to include that certification on its paperwork naming Obama as its candidate.

Even today, the Hawaii Democratic Party was staying mum, declining attempts by WND to obtain a comment on why it handled the 2008 presidential race paperwork as it did.

The original report came from a commentator at Canada Free Press who revealed the Democrats failed to certify their candidate's eligibility in 49 of the 50 states.

"In most states," writer JB Williams said at the time last year, "it appears that the DNC never certified constitutional eligibility for Barack Hussein Obama, despite their many claims of proper vetting and certification, all of which we now know to be false."

As WND reported, Williams released copies of two documents apparently prepared by Democrats to certify Obama as their nominee for president. One contains language affirming his constitutional eligibility, filed in Hawaii where state law requires the specific language, and another omits the language, filed in the remaining 49 states.

Now a series of reports, including those from blogger JBJD, the butterdezillion blog, Obama Release Your Records blog and the Fellowshipofminds blog, are revealing the local state party's stance in 2008.

The blog reports cite each other, as well as apparent Democratic Party documents posted online from the 2000, 2004 and 2008 elections.

The images reveal the change in wording that Hawaii Democrats adopted when Obama was their candidate.

In choosing Al Gore and Joe Lieberman in 2000, this was their statement:

"THIS IS TO CERTIFY that the following candidates for President and Vice-President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution and are the duly chosen candidates of both the state and the national Democratic Parties by balloting at the Presidential Preference Poll and Caucus held March 7, 2000 in the State of Hawaii and by acclamation at the National Democratic Convention held August 14-17, 2000 in Los Angeles, California."

The wording was almost identical on behalf of John Kerry and John Edwards in 2004:

This is nothing short of a smoking gun. I can’t imagine anything getting more cut and dried than this.

They ALL know why they did it and none of it was good for our country. Evil people.

All 3 branches of government know that Obama is ineligable for the office of President.

Pelosi needs to be hung along with ANYONE else that new of this FRAUD.

Michelle Obama The America Hater Promoting Obamacare Law To Nurses

Michelle Obama promoting new health care law to nurses. Conference call transcript

Chicago Sun Times


It was not official political business--but the conference call hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday could help Democrats in the November mid-term elections. Mrs. Obama--with Dr. Mary Wakefield, the Administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration, briefed about 1,000 nurses on the new benefits of the health care law--six months old this week.


Office of the First Lady

For Immediate Release September 28, 2010


Via teleconference

MRS. OBAMA: Thank you, thanks so much, Dr. Wakefield. Thank you for that introduction but more importantly thank you for your hard work in fighting for health care reform for so many years. She's truly been a wonderful advocate and a partner to this White House.

I also want to thank all the nurses who are joining me here today at the White House. And of course I want to thank all of you joining us on the call across the country today. We have a wonderful representation of the profession on this call.

But we're on this call today to talk about what health insurance reform means for you and for your patients, specifically the new provisions that just went into effect. But I do want to start by saying that I was looking forward to this call for a couple of reasons, not just because we're talking about important reforms, but because Barack and I have seen firsthand the crucial role that nurses play in our nation's health care system.

And just to recall a story, I will never forget the time back in Chicago, when Sasha was then a baby, she was just about four months old, and one day she just began to cry inconsolably. And up until that time, Sasha was a healthy, happy baby who rarely cried for no reason. So of course we knew something was wrong, and we immediately took her to the ER.

And as you all can imagine, when a child gets sick, you are scared, and we were certainly scared when we got to the hospital. And we were even more frightened when Sasha was diagnosed with meningitis.

But what made that difficult time so much easier to bear was really all of you. It was the nurses. And don't get me wrong, the doctors did a phenomenal job. But the nurses were the ones communicating with us every single step of the way, using their expertise not just to comfort our little baby girl, but to comfort us.

And thank God, everything turned out okay, and Sasha is healthy, as everyone knows. But it's because of that experience we will always be grateful to the nurses who helped us then and to all our nurses across the country who provide such outstanding health care each and every day.

And I know that so many Americans have their own stories to tell about the skill, the care, the compassion that nurses showed them during difficult days.

We all have these stories because in moments of need, nurses are on the front lines of America's health care system. We all have these stories because in moments of need, nurses are the ones who make things work.

And that's the reason we're talking today. You all play such a critical role in helping patients understand what's going on with their health care, giving them the information they need not just to get better, but to stay healthy.

And right now, there's some very important new information that we really need to help pass along.

Last week, we hit the six-month anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. That means that we're starting to see more of the reforms take effect, including new protections and benefits in the Patient's Bill of Rights.

So for example, insurance companies can no longer discriminate against kids because they have a preexisting condition. Patients can no longer be dropped by their insurance companies because they get sick. People suffering from a serious illness like breast cancer can focus on their treatment because they no longer have to worry about hitting their lifetime limit on coverage. And college kids and young adults just starting out on their own can now get coverage through their parents' plan.

Now, all this means that individuals and families have more control over their health care. But here's the important point: These reforms aren't abstract theories that just make for good talking points. These are real changes that will benefit Americans all across the country.

And some of the biggest new changes and benefits are the reforms that deal with preventative care, because we all know, everyone on this call, that the best way to keep families healthy and cut health care costs is to keep people from getting sick in the first place.

And, as a result of the Affordable Care Act, that's going to be easier because many preventative services are now covered at no out-of-pocket costs. Things like mammograms, cervical screenings, colonoscopies, childhood immunizations, prenatal and new baby care, high blood pressure treatment, all of these are included in new insurance plans with no deductable, no copay, no coinsurance, nothing. These steps are crucial because they can help combat preventable conditions that can have serious health consequences later in life.

Take childhood obesity, for example, an issue that's of particular concern to me as First Lady and as a mother. It's an epidemic that's sweeping the country and it's one that I've been trying to combat through our "Let's Move" initiative. These new reforms are critical in addressing this challenge because we know that preventative care, at least certain steps if taken early in a child's life, can help reduce obesity and improve a child's prospect for a healthier future.

We know, for example, that breastfeeding can have an impact on a child's health. That's why the Affordable Care Act makes it easier for a mother to breastfeed once she's returned to work.

We know that prenatal care and early childhood screenings can have a dramatic effect on a child's chances of becoming obese later in life. So the Affordable Care Act covers screenings for an array of conditions that affect pregnant women and their babies.

We know that kids getting their BMI checked is an easy step that can help parents make better decisions about their children's health. So the Affordable Care Act covers BMI screenings.

And it's not just childhood obesity. Preventative measures like these can have a major effect on so many chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease or high blood pressure.

So those are just some of the examples of what's in the law. But in order for this law to make a real difference in people's lives, we have to make sure that people know about these reforms and that they take advantage of them. And that's why we need your help in spreading the word.

So we're asking you all get involved in this outreach effort. Talk to your patients about how these reforms can help them. Also, talk to your colleagues about the best ways to inform patients about what this new law means for them and for their families.

But in closing, just let me say this to all of you on this line. So many of you have played such an important role throughout this process. From the very beginning, it's been nurses who have sat at the table sharing your ideas, sharing your concerns and your experiences. And as a result, all of you have helped to make this law even better. So I want to thank you for that. And we needed your help then and we need your help again to spread the word.

So, again, thank you everyone for the work that you've done, thank you for the work that you're going to do and all the things that you do every single day to make this country a healthier, more secure place.

And with that, I'm going to turn it back to Mary Wakefield who will provide a few more details on some of the other reforms.

Thanks, again.

Wild Thing's comment........

Anyone ask Michelle if her family is included in the healthcare law? hmmmmmmmmm

The Affordable Care Act is another bill passed by the arrogant democrats that does the opposite of what it claims.

I think the rat plan is to turn different groups of health care providers against each other.

More and More Threats From The DEMOCRAT Dictator Obama

Obama: Democratic voter apathy 'inexcusable'



Admonishing his own party, President Barack Obama says it would be "inexcusable" and "irresponsible" for unenthusiastic Democratic voters to sit out the midterm elections, warning that the consequences could be a squandered agenda for years.

"People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up," Obama told Rolling Stone in an interview to be published Friday. The president told Democrats that making change happen is hard and "if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place."

The midterm elections are in five weeks and polling shows that Republicans, out of power at the White House and on Capitol Hill, have a much more excited base of supporters than Democrats. Obama, campaigning this week in four states, is in a sprint to restore the voter passion that helped him win office.

Yet in his attempt to light a fire under supporters, Obama comes across as fired up himself about how many backers fail to acknowledge the progress he sees. He said the glass-half-empty view among many progressive voters can be a debilitating force that distracts them from the real worry: Republicans.

The GOP is poised to win seats in the House, if not control of the chamber, and gain ground in the Senate, too.

"It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines in this midterm election," Obama said.

The president has been telling Democrats to "wake up" and recognize that he and the Democratic-run Congress have delivered on promises, from a new health care law to tougher rules for Wall Street to more aid for college students. Obama wants disenchanted supporters to see that Republican wins in November would undermine the ability of Democrats to get the unfinished business done, from climate change legislation to allowing gays to serve openly in the military.

What emerges in the magazine story is a stern, lecturing tone from Obama.

It comes mainly at the end of the interview. Obama had wrapped the lengthy Q-and-A session, according to the magazine, but then returned unprompted to make one more impassioned point and unleash on the enthusiasm gap. He portrayed a clear choice between an administration that despite some warts has helped advance its agenda, and a Republican Party that would offer disastrous policies for the economy and civil liberties.

"The idea that we've got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible," he said in the interview. He said Democrats should be thinking about what's at stake this election "if they want to move forward over the next two years or six years or 10 years."

The Rolling Stone interview was conducted Sept. 17. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the story, titled "Obama Fights Back."

Obama expresses plenty of disappointment over how Republicans made a tactical decision from the start to oppose him, but also offers some "grudging admiration" for its political effectiveness in keeping the GOP united. He said the resulting slog between Republicans and himself — legislative delays and political fighting reminiscent of the Washington he ran against — has worsened public skepticism of government and eroded the feeling of hope that surrounded his election.

The president said he keeps a checklist of his campaign promises and that he has met, by his account, about 70 percent of them.

As for the rest: "Well, that's what the next two years is for, or maybe the next six."

Obama would need to win re-election in 2012 for that latter timeframe to occur.


LOL and this insult from Hanoi John Kerry

John Kerry: Dems Vulnerable Because Voters Are Stupid


Wild Thing's comment........

And the blame "everyone else but me" game continues! LOL! His own voters!
Obama the leftist liar that hung out with scumbag bombers and Chicago crooks. Biden told a 'Rat audience yesterday to "quit whining". I hope these guys keep chastising their base. Obama, you need more than just registered RATS to vote for your Commie-Pinko friends in November.

I'm a conservative, and I'm an American, and this creepy punk is destroying my country.

I'll continue to do what I believe to be best, and will fight with my heart soul and mind for this country and conservative principles. What libs fail to grasp is we don’t want a damn agenda. Just run the country intelligently and in a manner consistant with our founding fathers.

I Love the Smell of Democrat Desperation in the Morning. Smells like Victory.

Obama Signs $30B small business Lending Bill BUT Small Business Says Tax Cuts Needed to Support Small Business

Obama signs $30B small business lending bill


BUT let's look at the truth if the banks want this and what small business thinks about Obama's agenda! ~ Wild Thing


Small biz, banks may spurn Obama's $30B program



Barack Obama's $30 billion small community business lending program faces one big challenge: many of the community banks and businesses it's supposed to help don't want it.

The lending program is part of a bill that passed the House of Representatives on Thursday and now awaits the president's signature. The legislation contains a mix of tax cuts and credits aimed at helping small businesses. The centerpiece of the bill is an effort to make billions of dollars available to community banks for loans to small businesses.

It seems like a simple effort to unclog a credit pipeline that has been blocked since the financial meltdown two years ago. But interviews with seven community bankers, as well as small business owners, show a reluctance to participate.

"People in my constituency can't get credit, and this will get money out to small businesses, who are the engine of job creation for this country," said Republican Sen. George LeMieux of Florida, who co-authored the amendment that created the lending program.

Bank executives say their customers don't want loans, even at low interest rates, because the sluggish economy has chilled expansion plans. Some say the federal money isn't worth it because they fear it will come with too much regulatory oversight.

"We have taken a strategic decision not to have our primary regulator, the government, also be a partner in our bank," said William Chase Jr., CEO of Triumph Bank in Memphis.

Chase said the bank already has enough capital to meet the paltry demand for loans. "Our business customers are mired in uncertainty and are reluctant to invest in their businesses," Chase said.

Ninety-one percent of small business owners surveyed in August by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) said all their credit needs were met. Only 4 percent cited a lack of financing as their top business problem. Plans for capital spending were at a 35-year low.

Jack Rajala just laughs when asked if he wants to take out a loan today. He's in a fight to save his family's lumber business that has been buffeted by the recession and housing meltdown.

"I've seen many ups and downs; this is unquestionably the toughest," said the 71-year-old Rajala, the third-generation owner of Rajala Companies of Deer River, Minn. Since 2008, his company closed two factories and halved the number of employees to less than 100 as orders plummeted for windows, floors and door frames. Annual revenue is down 50 percent since 2008 to $5 million, and the company is losing money.

Rajala is symbolic of the challenges faced by Obama's small business lending initiative. The $30 billion fund will be run by the Treasury Department, and money will be awarded to banks deemed strong by regulators. Banks that have less than $10 billion in assets are eligible.

"It will provide incentives to invest and create jobs for 4 million small businesses," Obama said at a news conference Sept. 10. "It will more than double the amount some small business owners can borrow to grow their companies."

Obama has to bridge the gulf between money that's available and the needs of businesses. The NFIB survey found businesses don't intend to borrow until they have more customers.

Community banks will have to pay an annual dividend of 5 percent to the U.S. Treasury. However, when banks increase their lending to small businesses, their dividend rate declines on a sliding scale. So, if a bank increases its small-business lending portfolio by 2.5 percent, the dividend payment goes down to 4 percent and so on, said Paul Merski, chief economist at the Independent Community Bankers of America, the lobbying group for small banks.

The dividend payment increases to 7 percent if banks don't lend to small businesses.

"The crucial questions facing business owners are does it make sense to make an investment right now, and will it generate positive returns?" Josh Lerner, professor of finance and entrepreneurial management at Harvard Business School.

Noah Wilcox, CEO of Grand Rapids State Bank, with two branches in Minnesota, said he already has more capital at his $250 million bank than he can lend out.

"Many of our clients, business owners, put their projects on ice in 2008 because their job number one is to see their company through to the other side of this economic crisis," said Wilcox.

And then there's concerns that the government money will have strings attached.

The fears stem from what happened under TARP, the Troubled Asset Relief Fund, formed at the height of the financial meltdown to pump money into banks. Banks that accepted TARP money had to later cut dividends to shareholders and limit compensation to top executives. They were also penalized for early repayment.

In this new legislation, the government is taking steps to avoid the tarnish that accompanied TARP. The key part of this effort: Banks can return the money without penalty if rules governing the small business loans change.

But Chase, the bank CEO in Memphis, isn't convinced.

"The rules can be changed any time," said Chase.


Wild Thing's comment.......

What a moron. So now banks have the cash, but still businesses aren't going to take out loans. They'd be crazy too not knowing what the future holds in taxes and medical insuance.

And small banks are already saying they are going to refuse to take the money. They see the strings attached to the TARP (and banks being told they can’t repay the money, even if they want to).

One banker’s quote summed it up: “We don’t want to be business partners with the government, which is also our primary regulator.” (paraphrase)

The one thing that small businesses need more than anything else is some certainty. This Administration has removed every bit of certainty over the last 20 months. And this bill does absolutely nothing to restore that.

Today's businesses have no clue as to where tax rates will be in the coming year. They have no idea how much the addition of government mandates regarding health care will increase their labor costs. And they are helpless to make any predictions on the cost of money in the near future in light of runaway deficits and the hefty expansion in the money supply that began last year.

Our worst enemy couldn't have come up with anything nearly this effective in destroying the American economy. And here we are only a few week away from an election, and small business owners still don't know what their tax rates will be on Jan 1, 2011.

And let's guess where the $30 billion dollars came from: No new military aircraft until at least 2016? Cut off foreign aid to Israel? Shut down half the Veterans Affairs hospitals? Am I warm?

" The Last Best Hope "

"This is the issue of this election. Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves." Washington elites have awakened a sleeping giant. Let us preserve the last best hope of man on earth. November is coming. God help those who hope to take that last step into a thousand years of darkness. This is the new revolution. Take America BACK.

Obama Telling Bob Woodward “We Can Absorb a Terrorist Attack”

This is the video of author Bob Woodward talking about Obama’s private interview with him in the White House where Obama said that the United States “can absorb a terrorist attack.” The audio of Obama saying that to Woodward is then played on the video, and Woodward said,

“I jumped in my chair a little bit” when he heard Obama say that.

He also played audio of Obama talking about a “potential game-changer” – a nuclear weapon in the hands of terrorists “blowing up a major American city.” Obama told Woodward, “That is where I can’t afford any mistakes.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

I think Obama would love for the country that he hates to absorb another attack. He feels that this country deserves it.

Brigitte Gabriel Speaking at at Duke University

Some history of Brigitte Gabriel:

Brigitte Gabriel was born in 1965 in Lebanon to a Christian family.

According to Gabriel, during the Lebanese Civil War, militants launched an assault on a Lebanese military base near her family's house and bombed her home during a national attempt to overrun the Lebanese government. In April 1975 and following the collapse of the Lebanese Army, many Lebanese Christian militiamen found themselves defending their own homes and were heavily engaged in street fights against the Palestinian militias and the Lebanese National Movement(Leftist). Just ten years old at the time, Brigitte was severely injured and spent 2 1/2 months in a hospital recovering. Gabriel was the only child of elderly parents. Their life savings were destroyed in the bombings, as well as their money, their restaurant and their rental rooms.

Gabriel reports that she and her parents were forced to live in an 8'x10' bomb shelter underground for seven years with only a small kerosene heater, no sanitary systems, no electricity or running water and little food. To get water she states that she had to crawl in a ditch alongside a road to a spring in order to evade Muslim snipers.

Later, in 1978, Gabriel's says a man warned her family of an impending attack on Christians by militias. She says that her life was saved that night when Israelis invaded Lebanon in Operation Litani. Later, her mother was seriously injured and was taken to an Israeli hospital where Gabriel noted the humanity of the Israelis in contrast to the propaganda against the Jews she says she saw as a child.

Gabriel is a former news anchor for World News, the Arabic evening news broadcast for Middle East Television a Christian television station seen throughout Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. She covered the Israeli withdrawal from central Lebanon, the Israeli Security Zone and the Palestinian uprising in the West Bank and Gaza.

Gabriel emigrated to the United States in 1989 and founded a television production, marketing and advertising agency.

Gabriel is the founder of the conservative ACT! (American Congress for Truth) for America, a non-profit issues advocacy organization. ACT! for America has hundreds of chapters across America and members in 20 countries outside of America.

She is the author of the New York Times Bestseller BECAUSE THEY HATE: A Survivor of Terror Warns America, and THEY MUST BE STOPPED: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.

"Radical Islamists are telling us exactly where they stand and what are their intentions. We are refusing to understand their simple words and how serious they are in their faith and its commandments.""



She gave this at Duke University also In today's world, this has to be considered .

Editor's Note: Below are selected excerpts from Brigitte Gabriel's speech delivered at the Intelligence Summit in Washington DC

We gather here today to share information and knowledge. Intelligence is not merely cold hard data about numerical strength or armament or disposition of military forces. The most important element of intelligence has to be understanding the mindset and intention of the enemy. The West has been wallowing in a state of ignorance and denial for thirty years as Muslim extremist perpetrated evil against innocent victims in the name of Allah.

I was ten years old when my home exploded around me, burying me under the rubble and leaving me to drink my blood to survive, as the perpetrators shouted, 'Allah Akbar!' My only crime was that I was a Christian living in a Christian town. At 10 years old, I learned the meaning of the word 'infidel.'

I had a crash course in survival. Not in the Girl Scouts, but in a bomb shelter where I lived for seven years in pitch darkness, freezing cold, drinking stale water and eating grass to live. At the age of 13, dressed in my burial clothes going to bed at night, waiting to be slaughtered. By the age of 20, I had buried most of my friends--killed by Muslims. We were not Americans living in New York , or Britons in London . We were Arab Christians living in Lebanon .

As a victim of Islamic terror, I was amazed when I saw Americans waking up on September 12, 2001, and asking themselves 'Why do they hate us?' The psychoanalyst experts were coming up with all sort of excuses as to what did we do to offend the Muslim World. But if America and the West were paying attention to the Middle East they would not have had to ask the question. Simply put, they hate us because we are defined in their eyes by one simple word: 'infidels.'

Under the banner of Islam 'la, ilaha illa Allah, muhammad

rasoulu Allah,' (None is god except Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) they murdered Jewish children in Israel, massacred Christians in Lebanon, killed Copts in Egypt, Assyrians in Syria, Hindus in India, and expelled almost 900,000 Jews from Muslim lands. We Middle Eastern infidels paid the price then. Now infidels worldwide are paying the price for indifference and shortsightedness.

Tolerating evil is a crime. Appeasing murderers doesn't buy protection. It earns one disrespect and loathing in the enemy's eyes. Yet apathy is the weapon by which the West is committing suicide. Political correctness forms the shackles around our ankles, by which Islamist's are leading us to our demise.
America and the West are doomed to failure in this war unless they stand up and identify the real enemy: Islam. You hear about Cahaba and Salafi Islam as the only extreme form of Islam. All the other Muslims, supposedly, are wonderful moderates. Closer to the truth are the pictures of the irrational eruption of violence in reaction to the cartoons of Mohammed printed by a Danish newspaper. From burning embassies, to calls to butcher those who mock Islam, to warnings that the West be prepared for another holocaust, those pictures have given us a glimpse into the real face of the enemy. News pictures and video of these events represent a canvas of hate decorated by different nationalities who share one common ideology of hate, bigotry and intolerance derived from one source: authentic Islam. An Islam that is awakening fr om centuries of slumber to re-ignite its wrath against the infidel and dominate the world. An Islam which has declared 'Intifada' on the West.

America and the West can no longer afford to lay in their lazy state of overweight ignorance. The consequences of this mental disease are starting to attack the body, and if they don't take the necessary steps now to control it, death will be knocking soon. If you want to understand the nature of the enemy we face, visualize a tapestry of snakes. They slither and they hiss, and they would eat each other alive, but they will unite in a hideous mass to achieve their common goal of imposing Islam on the world.

This is the ugly face of the enemy we are fighting. We are fighting a powerful ideology that is capable of altering basic human instincts. An ideology that can turn a mother into a launching pad of death. A perfect example is a recently elected Hamas official in the Palestinian Territories who raves in heavenly joy about sending her three sons to death and offering the ones who are still alive for the cause. It is an ideology that is capable of offering highly educated individuals such as doctors and lawyers far more joy in attaining death than any respect and stature life in society is ever capable of giving them.

The United States has been a prime target for radical Islamic hatred and terror. Every Friday, mosques in the Middle East ring with shrill prayers and monotonous chants calling death, destruction and damnation down on America and its people. The radical Islamist deeds have been as vile as their words. Since the Iran hostage crisis, more than three thousand Americans have died in a terror campaign almost unprecedented in its calculated cruelty along with thousands of other citizens worldwide. Even the Nazis did not turn their own children into human bombs, and then rejoice at their deaths as well the deaths of their victims. This intentional, indiscriminate and wholesale murder of innocent American citizens is justified and glorified in the name of Islam.

America cannot effectively defend itself in this war unl ess and until the American people understand the nature of the enemy that we face. Even after 9/11 there are those who say that we must engage our terrorist enemies, that we must address their grievances. Their grievance is our freedom of religion. Their grievance is our freedom of speech. Their grievance is our democratic process where the rule of law comes from the voices of many not that of just one prophet. It is the respect we instill in our children towards all religions. It is the equality we grant each other as human beings sharing a planet and striving to make the world a better place for all humanity. Their grievance is the kindness and respect a man shows a woman, the justice we practice as equals under the law, and the mercy we grant our enemy. Their grievance cannot be answered by an apology for who or what we are.

Our mediocre attitude of not confronting Islamic forces of bigotry and hatred wherever they raised their ugly head in the last 30 years, has empowered and strengthened our enemy to launch a full scale attack on the very freedoms we cherish in their effort to impose their values and way of life on our civilization.

If we don't wake up and challenge our Muslim community to take action against the terrorists within it, if we don't believe in ourselves as Americans and in the standards we should hold every patriotic American to, we are going to pay a price for our delusion. For the sake of our children and our country, we must wake up and take action. In the face of a torrent of hateful invective and terrorist murder, America 's learning curve since the Iran hostage crisis is so shallow that it is almost flat. The longer we lay supine, the more difficult it will be to stand erect.

This is all coming true. A non-patriot is President of this great country. He has openly admitted his Muslim roots and his sympathy for all Muslims. How can this happen?? APATHY, that's how!!! Send this around.

Editor's Note: Below are selected excerpts from Brigitte Gabriel's speech delivered at the Intelligence Summit in Washington DC

We gather here today to share information and knowledge. Intelligence is not merely cold hard data about numerical strength or armament or disposition of military forces. The most important element of intelligence has to be understanding the mindset and intention of the enemy. The West has been wallowing in a state of ignorance and denial for thirty years as Muslim extremist perpetrated evil against innocent victims in the name of Allah.

I was ten years old when my home exploded around me, burying me under the rubble and leaving me to drink my blood to survive, as the perpetrators shouted, 'Allah Akbar!' My only crime was that I was a Christian living in a Christian town. At 10 years old, I learned the meaning of the word 'infidel.'

I had a crash course in survival. Not in the Girl Scouts, but in a bomb shelter where I lived for seven years in pitch darkness, freezing cold, drinking stale water and eating grass to live. At the age of 13, dressed in my burial clothes going to bed at night, waiting to be slaughtered. By the age of 20, I had buried most of my friends--killed by Muslims. We were not Americans living in New York , or Britons in London . We were Arab Christians living in Lebanon .

As a victim of Islamic terror, I was amazed when I saw Americans waking up on September 12, 2001, and asking themselves 'Why do they hate us?' The psychoanalyst experts were coming up with all sort of excuses as to what did we do to offend the Muslim World. But if America and the West were paying attention to the Middle East they would not have had to ask the question. Simply put, they hate us because we are defined in their eyes by one simple word: 'infidels.'

Under the banner of Islam 'la, ilaha illa Allah, muhammad

rasoulu Allah,' (None is god except Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) they murdered Jewish children in Israel, massacred Christians in Lebanon, killed Copts in Egypt, Assyrians in Syria, Hindus in India, and expelled almost 900,000 Jews from Muslim lands. We Middle Eastern infidels paid the price then. Now infidels worldwide are paying the price for indifference and shortsightedness.

Tolerating evil is a crime. Appeasing murderers doesn't buy protection. It earns one disrespect and loathing in the enemy's eyes. Yet apathy is the weapon by which the West is committing suicide. Political correctness forms the shackles around our ankles, by which Islamist's are leading us to our demise.

Brigitte Gabriel is an awesome person.

Brigitte Gabriel’s book is unforgettable and a real page-turner — I couldn’t put it down. People have to understand the threat. Her life story is astonishing. Thank God she has come through it all; her parents and her country weren’t so lucky.

She is passionate about stopping ‘Sharia law’ and other intrusions in to our way of life.

NAACP-led ‘One Nation Working Together’ Rally of Thugs and America Haters in Washington, D.C. on October 2nd

NAACP and a bunch of unions are throwing a rally on the Lincoln Memorial on October 2nd

Their website.........One Nation working together

Communist, Pro-Terrorist, Anti-Israel Groups Sponsor NAACP's One Nation' Counter Rally

Big Government

The NAACP-led ‘One Nation Working Together’ rally coming up in Washington, D.C. on October 2nd to counter the Tea Party movement’s success is being sponsored by pro-terrorist and communist groups. Many of their logos are proudly and prominently displayed on the rally’s promotional website. One sponsor’s leader was fired this summer by the U.S. Civil Rights Commission for his ties to Hamas.

The rally’s sponsor list demonstrates how the Democrat party’s liberal establishment has mainstreamed treason and anti-semitism.

Included among large, traditional labor organizations sponsoring the rally: AFL-CIO; National Education Association; the union of federal government workers’ American Federation of Government Employees; United Auto Workers; and United Mine Workers .

Joining them are anti-American, anti-Israel groups: Stalinist ANSWER Coalition; and the terrorist supporting Obama funders Code Pink and United for Peace and Justice, which since its inception and until recently was led by noted communist Leslie Cagan. Listed on the sidebar as sponsors are anti-American groups Veterans for Peace and Iraq Veterans Against the War.

All have supported terrorists in Iraq who were killing American troops and liberated Iraqis.

Also listed as partners of the One Nation rally are the Communist Party USA; the Democratic Socialists of America; the International Socialist Organization; and the War Resisters League.

One Nation Working Together also lists as a partner the American Muslim Association of North America, whose leader Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout was fired this summer by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights for his ties to Hamas and David Duke.

It sure is , that is what all these progressives are.

These Marxist groups are becoming quite bold and open, now that they have one of their own as POTUS.

The people who are being called to this event are the same ones who beat up Kenneth Gladney, showed up at a Bank of America executives home. All the true haters, bigots, racists general dirtbags are being professionally organized by over 200 radical groups.

Probably jealous of Beck’s Restoring Honor rally, and heard that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are going to have their own rally, and they just couldn’t bear to be left out. LOL And In order to get people to, you know, GO to their rally, they have to entice them with free transportation, free food, free t-shirts, and free flags. Because there’s not enough people who would attend without that kind of incentive.

Democrats and Democrat Ron Klein Release Social Security Number Of Lt. Col. Allen

Republican candidate for Congress Lt. Col. Allen West says a document sent to thousands of voters has his Social Security number on it.

The race to become Florida-22′s congressman is becoming interesting. According to Ron Klein’s internal polling of 500 likely voters, he is in a tough race for re-election, and this is the first time a republican is actually giving him a run for his money.

48% of voters said they’ll vote for Klein versus 40% who are set with Allen West. Although the margin is 8 points, the trend is moving West’s way, and there is a 4% margin of error. In other words, this is a winnable race for West. This poll was taken a week ago. It’ll be eye-opening to see how poll numbers are now with the recent news of the Florida democrat party releasing Allen West’s social security number.

More on Klein’s internal polling:

Poll numbers not necessarily as good as it seems. The campaign said the poll of 500 likely voters, conducted Sept. 14-16 by Anzalone Liszt Research has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

Readers need to be skeptical. The campaign released only the results for a few questions without any details, including the wording of the questions or the order in which they were asked. All those factors can skew results, which is why all candidate polls need to be viewed with some caution.

Allen West actually has a shot at winning this race. Klein’s hesitation to release any more details of the polls, as well as his his party’s deliberate revelation of Allen West’s social security number, proves they are running scared. This political cycle is the opportunity for republicans to make gains and FL-22 is one of them. West is using these acts of desperation to pummel Klein in this new ad in video above.


The Florida Democratic Party has offered to pay to protect Republican congressional candidate Allen West from identity theft because it sent out a mailer featuring his Social Security number.

West, a retired Army colonel and YouTube sensation running against Rep. Ron Klein, was hit with a tax lien — since paid — in 2005, and the state party attacked him for it and other financial problems in a mailer sent out to 22nd District voters over the weekend.

The piece featured a photo of an IRS document showing the tax lien — and while West’s address was blacked out, his Social Security number and his wife’s Employment Identification Number were clearly visible.

“Ron Klein has clearly crossed a line. I'm not yet sure the potential damage that might come to my wife and me, and it makes me sick to think of what could happen to my daughters. My entire family is at risk of identity theft,” West said in a statement about the mailer.

The state Democratic Party called West’s claims about his children “bizarre” and called his concern about the mailer “another moment of West's paranoia.”

Still, it agreed to pay for identity theft monitoring for two years, and party officials apologized — sort of.

West has not said whether he will accept the party’s offer.

This is terrible, the democrats will never have honor.

Dems did the same thing to Michael Steele in Maryland. Huffpo had a doc on their site that had Sarah Palin's address and Social on it that was back in 2008. It seems to be a pattern.

Adopting a Soldier: Wisconsin couple gives Soldier a new Family

Spc. Christopher Sandri, an infantryman with Company A, 3rd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 1st Advise and Assist Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, United States Division

Adopting a Soldier: Wisconsin couple gives Soldier a new Family

By Sgt. Mary S. Katzenberger


When Spc. Christopher Sandri travels home for leave this month, he plans on enjoying home-cooked meals and fishing for bass.

Sandri, an infantryman with Company A, 3rd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 1st Advise and Assist Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, United States Division – Center, said the best moments of leave, however, will be those spent with his parents, John and Dorean Sandri of Green Bay, Wis.

Chris said he feels strongly about this because until two years ago, he didn’t have parents to visit while on leave. Nor did he have parents to send him care packages while he was deployed to Anbar province from October 2007 to April 2008.

Chris said what was even more painful was standing on the parade field alone after redeploying April 2008 to Fort Stewart, Ga., while other soldiers went home with their families.

“I pretty much sucked it up and went to the barracks,” Chris said.

Chris, a Laurel, Md., native, was born Christopher Kroll on October 14, 1983, and was practically raised by his grandparents because his biological mother was unable to do so.

While Chris had maintained a strained relationship with his mother since joining the military and leaving Maryland, the relationship worsened after he left the U.S. for an assignment in Germany.

“She wasn’t happy I couldn’t contact her all the time,” Chris said. “The longer and longer I was over in Germany, the more and more she just grew away from me.”

After three years and a 6-month deployment to Afghanistan, Chris moved to Fort Stewart, Ga. It was then, over a phone call, that Chris’s biological mother ended all contact with her son.

“Her exact words that day when I called her were, ‘I have no son anymore,’” Chris said. “At the time, it didn’t bother me because we were in the middle of training; it didn’t click.”

Chris said two “rough” years later—by chance—he met his future adoptive mother, Dorean, through an online chat server.

Dorean, an executive secretary for the not-for-profit organization, Adopt a U.S. Soldier, read Chris’ profile and upon realizing he was a soldier, suggested Chris meet her husband, a Vietnam War veteran. Once Chris conversed with the man, the three adults became very close and talked frequently.

Through months of communication the Sandris heard about Chris’ Family history. Knowing Chris had nowhere to go over the holidays, the couple invited him to spend Christmas of 2008 with them in Green Bay; Chris accepted.

The visit was a meaningful experience for Chris, especially when one evening, while sitting in the garage, John Sandri asked the soldier if he would consider becoming his and Dorean’s son. The question caught Chris off guard at first, and he said he needed to think about it. It only took Chris two days to decide.

“It was like alright, I’m going to do it—I don’t have anybody else to trace back to.” Chris said. “I actually found out [part of the reason] behind it was because [John and Dorean] can’t have children.”

Chris Kroll and his soon-to-be parents submitted the necessary paperwork to the courthouse. In early 2009, the Soldier officially became known as Christopher Sandri.

Chris said since the adoption, it has been easy fitting in with the family.

“If there’s one thing I’ve got to admit about John and [Dorean], their whole family—every last one of them—is nuts,” Chris said with a laugh.

Chris said he has especially appreciated being able to talk to his adoptive father about things that have happened during his deployments. On the soldier’s last visit to the Sandri household prior to his current deployment, he said his adoptive father broke down into tears when sharing some of his memories from the Vietnam War, in which he served as a medevac pilot.

“It brought me to tears,” Chris said. “He sat down and he looked at me, and figured it’s only fair that if he spilled it all out to me then it won’t make me feel awkward if for some reason during my career I need to talk to somebody.”

Chris said Dorean always lets him know he’s wanted and that she loves him completely.

“It makes a difference knowing that if I have a hard day at work, I can get online and gripe to my parents,” he said. “My father will take it like a champ and find a way to make me laugh and my mother will be not too far behind with a promise of fresh made cookies coming in the mail.”

“All in all, John and Dorean are the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” Chris said.

Obama's R.O.E. Called 'Courageous restraint' Is Putting Troops Lives At Risk

'Courageous restraint' putting troops lives at risk

Restrictive rules on firing upon the Taliban are putting soldiers' lives in danger, troops serving on the front line in Afghanistan have said.

Soldiers in Helmand claim that the policy of "courageous restraint" is forcing them to fight with "one hand tied behind our backs".

The doctrine was introduced by Gen Stanley McChrystal, the former American commander, to reduce the number of civilian casualties, which are mainly caused by aircraft bombs or artillery missiles.

However, with their own casualties mounting, troops say there is an urgent need for a change and for more flexibility in using lethal force to defend themselves.

Gen David Petraeus, who has taken over from Mr McChrystal after he was sacked last month by Barack Obama for insubordination, is said to be reviewing the policy as a result of the increase in casualties. June was the bloodiest month since fighting began in 2001.

A senior Non-Commissioned Officer, on his third tour of Afghanistan, said the rules of engagement had "gone too far one way" in favour of the insurgents.

"Our hands are tied the way we are asked to do courageous restraint. I agree with it to the extent that previously too many civilians were killed but we have got people shooting us and we are not allowed to shoot back.Outrageous restraint is a lot easier to say than to implement."

In guidance issued last August Mr McChrystal stated that "destroying a home or property jeopardises the livelihood of an entire family – and creates more insurgents" and that "large scale operations to kill or capture militants carry a significant risk of causing civilian casualties and collateral damage".

A 21-year-old Royal Marine said the policy was making troops "think twice before pulling the trigger" which "endangers them." "A couple of times I've hesitated in shooting someone when I should have done. Some lads have put themselves in danger by allowing a possible suicide bomber too close."

In one incident an insurgent fired single shots at a base for 15 minutes but was not taken out by a missile as after every shot he put down his rifle knowing he could not be hit if he was unarmed.

A junior officer commanding a small fort in Sangin said: "It's a major bugbear for the British Army, it affects us massively. Thank God we have the ANA (Afghan National Army) here because they have different rules of engagement to us and can smash the enemy." The policy has eroded confidence in opening fire to the point that officers have to remind the men that they are entitled to shoot.

"If you can PID (positively identify) an insurgent acting with hostile intent then you are cleared to engage, there's no grey area here," a troop commander told his men before they started a patrol.

Some locals in Sangin have criticised the troops for "not taking out" the Taliban who intimidate and harm them.

"We have our hands tied behind our backs when we want to take the enemy out of the equation," said a Royal Marine corporal. "This was (Gen Stanley) McChrystal's idea but he's been sacked hasn't he."

However, there have been many occasions when exercising courageous restraint has saved civilian lives.

Lt Col Paul James, commanding officer of 40 Commando, Royal Marines, last month ruled out launching an air strike on 15 locals digging in an IED (improvised explosive device).

"I chose not to strike them because that would have been 15 fathers of 15 sons who would almost certainly have been driven into the insurgents' arms.
You could also not rule out who was foe or who was curious onlooker."
Major Ed Moorhouse, a Royal Marine company commander, said: "The men will question courageous restraint but it doesn't mean you don't shoot. If you see a terrorist you ruthlessly prosecute the opportunity to shoot him and I remind them of that daily."

UN To Appoint Earth Contact For Aliens

UN to appoint Earth contact for aliens

United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth’s first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.

Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN's little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.

She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before - and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.

During a talk Othman gave recently to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.
"When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”

Professor Richard Crowther, an expert in space law and governance at the UK Space Agency and who leads British delegations to the UN on such matters, said: “Othman is absolutely the nearest thing we have to a ‘take me to your leader’ person.”

However, he thinks humanity’s first encounter with any intelligent aliens is more likely to be via radio or light signals from a distant planet than by beings arriving on Earth. And, he suggests, even if we do encounter aliens in the flesh, they are more likely to be microbes than anything intelligent.

And the aliens are supposed to get this new protocol how?

Double Amputee Soldier Deploys to Afghanistan

Army Capt. Dan Luckett, 27, of Norcross, Ga........ takes a seat at Combat Outpost Ashoqeh, Afghanistan. Luckett lost his left leg and part of his right foot in a bomb blast in Iraq in 2008. The Pentagon says 41 American amputee veterans are now serving in combat zones worldwide.

Double amputee soldier deploys to Afghanistan

Marine Corps Times

ASHOQEH, Afghanistan

When a bomb exploded under Dan Luckett’s Army Humvee in Iraq two years ago — blowing off one of his legs and part of his foot — the first thing he thought was: “That’s it. You’re done. No more Army for you.”

But two years later, the 27-year-old Norcross, Ga., native is back on duty — a double-amputee fighting on the front lines of America’s Afghan surge in one of the most dangerous parts of this volatile country.

Luckett’s remarkable recovery can be attributed in part to dogged self-determination. But technological advances have been crucial: Artificial limbs today are so effective, some war-wounded like Luckett are not only able to do intensive sports like snow skiing, they can return to active duty as fully operational soldiers. The Pentagon says 41 American amputee veterans are now serving in combat zones worldwide.

Luckett was a young platoon leader on his first tour in Iraq when an explosively formed penetrator — a bomb that hurls an armor-piercing lump of molten copper — ripped through his vehicle on a Baghdad street on Mother’s Day 2008.

His Humvee cabin instantly filled with heavy gray smoke and the smell of burning diesel and molten metal. Luckett felt an excruciating pain and a “liquid” — his blood — pouring out of his legs. He looked down and saw a shocking site: his own left foot sheered off above the ankle and his right boot a bloody mangle of flesh and dust.

Still conscious, he took deep breaths and made a deliberate effort to calm down.

A voice rang out over the radio — his squad leader checking in.

“1-6, is everybody all right?” the soldier asked, referring to Luckett’s call-sign.
“Negative,” Luckett responded. “My feet are gone.”

He was evacuated by helicopter to a Baghdad emergency room, flown to Germany, and six days after the blast, he was back in the U.S.

As his plane touched down at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., he made a determined decision. He was going to rejoin the 101st Airborne Division any way he could.

For the first month at Washington’s Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Luckett was bound to a wheelchair. He hated the dependence that came with it, the way people changed their voice when they spoke to him — soft and sympathetic.

He wondered: how long is THIS going to last? Will I be dependent on others for the rest of my life? At night, he dreamed of walking on two legs.

When he woke, only the stump of his left leg was there, painfully tender and swollen.

His family wanted to know, is this going to be the same Dan? He assured them he was.

Luckett was fortunate in one sense. His wounds had been caused not by shrapnel, but the projectile itself, which made a relatively clean cut. That meant no complications — no joint or nerve damage or bone fractures.

His right foot was sheared across his metatarsals, the five long bones before the toes. Doctors fitted it with a removable carbon fiber plate that runs under the foot and fills the space where toes should be with hardened foam.

His left leg was a far bigger challenge.

In early July 2008, Luckett strapped into a harness, leaned on a set of parallel bars, and tried out his first prosthetic leg.

It felt awkward, but he was able to balance and walk.

The next day, Luckett tried the leg on crutches — and tried to walk out the door.

“They were like, ‘You gotta’ give the leg back,’ ” Luckett said of his therapists. After a brief argument, they grudgingly gave in. “They said, ‘If you’re gonna be that hard-headed about it, do it smart, don’t wear it all the time.’ ”

By February 2009, he had progressed so far, he could run a mile in eight minutes.

He rejoined his unit at Fort Campbell, Ky., and told his battalion commander he wanted to return to duty “only if I could be an asset, not a liability,” he recalled.

Months later, he passed a physical fitness test to attain the Expert Infantryman’s Badge. It required running 12 miles in under three hours with a 35-pound backpack. It was a crucial moment, Luckett said, “because I knew if I can get this badge, then there’s nothing they can say that I’m not capable of doing.”

The Army agreed, and promoted him to captain.

In May, he deployed to Afghanistan.

On his first patrol, wearing 50 pounds of gear and body armor, Luckett slipped and fell down. But when he looked around, everybody else was falling, too.

The region around his outpost at Ashoqeh, just west of the provincial capital of Kandahar in southern Afghanistan, is surrounded by irrigation trenches and 4-foot-high mud walls that grapes grow over. Troops must traverse the treacherous terrain to avoid bombs on footpaths.

Capt. Brant Auge, Luckett’s company commander, said Luckett was as capable as every soldier in his company, and treated no different.
“He’s a soldier who just happens to be missing a leg,” said Auge, 30, who is from Ocean Springs, Miss. “He tries to play it down as much as possible, he doesn’t like to bring a lot of attention to it.”

On one of those early patrols, Luckett took to a knee and his pants leg rode up a little bit, revealing the prosthetic limb to a shocked group of Afghan soldiers nearby, Auge said. One gave him the nickname, the “One-legged Warrior of Ashoqeh.”

Beside his cramped bunk-bed, the 185-pound, 5-foot-11 Luckett keeps prosthetic legs for different tasks, each with a carbon fiber socket that attaches to his thigh.

One is fitted with a tennis shoe for running, another a boot. One, made of aluminum so it won’t rust, has a waterproof black Croc for showering. The most important leg though, he saves for patrols. It is made with a high-tech axle that allows him to move smoothly over uneven terrain. His squad leader painted its toenails purple.

Luckett’s prothesis is often a source of good humor — most often generated by Luckett himself.

Some joke of his advantage of having little to lose if he steps on a mine. “That’s always a big one,” he said, “but the reality is, you don’t want to step on an IED because you enjoy living and you want stay living. The fear is no different than any other soldier.”

Before heading to Afghanistan, Auge said Luckett had an as-yet-untried “master plan” to upset the insurgents.

Troops would have Luckett step on a mine and blow his fake leg off. He’d then look up at the trigger man while whipping a replacement leg over his shoulder and slipping it on.

“Then he would flip them off,” Auge said, “and keep on walking.”

America is blessed to have the most awesome warriors. Thank you Capt. Dan Luckett and you are in our thoughts and prayers, we owe you so much.

Obama Bails Out Credit Unions ~ $30 Million

Credit Unions Bailed Out

The Wall Street Journal

U.S. Backs $30 Billion in Bonds to Stabilize Key Institutions

Two years after the peak of the financial crisis, the federal government swooped in to stabilize a crucial part of the credit-union sector battered by losses on subprime mortgages.

Regulators announced Friday a rescue and revamping of the nation’s wholesale credit union system, underpinned by a federal guarantee valued at $30 billion or more. Wholesale credit unions don’t deal with the general public but provide essential back-office services to thousands of other credit unions across the U.S. The majority of retail credit unions are sound, but they will have to shoulder the losses through special assessments over the next decade.

Friday’s moves include the seizure of three wholesale credit unions, plus an unusual plan by government officials to manage $50 billion of troubled assets inherited from failed institutions. To help fund the rescue, the National Credit Union Administration plans to issue $30 billion to $35 billion in government-guaranteed bonds, backed by the shaky mortgage-related assets.

Officials said the plan won’t cost taxpayers any money. Still, it marks the latest intervention by the U.S. government into a financial system weakened by the real-estate bust. Bad bets on mortgage-backed securities have now killed five of the nation’s 27 wholesale credit unions since March 2009. The federal government, which now controls about 70 percent of the total assets at such credit unions, said the surviving institutions will be reined in so that they take fewer risks with their investments.

“Previously, we stabilized the system, and now we’re resolving the problem and reforming the system,” said Debbie Matz, chairman of the National Credit Union Administration, the U.S. agency overseeing credit unions.

Members United Corporate Federal Credit Union in Warrenville, Ill., Southwest Corporate Federal Credit Union of Plano, Texas, and Constitution Corporate Federal Credit Union, Wallingford, Conn., which had a total of $19.67 billion in assets as of July, were taken into conservatorship by federal regulators.

DOJ Lawyer Christopher Coates’ Testimony Regarding Obama NOT Interested Enforcing the Voting Rights Act

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and Steve Centanni reporting on bombshell testimony yesterday by long-time Department of Justice lawyer Christopher Coates who told the U.S. Civil Rights Commission that the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice is not interested enforcing the voting rights act in a “race-neutral” manner. He testified that the Justice Department gave instructions not to pursue cases in which whites were victims of intimidation or discrimination like they do if the case has to do with minorities.

He told the commission that the Black Panther Voter Intimidation case was dismissed due to pressure from the NAACP.

Coates reportedly accepted “Whistleblower” protection in giving this testimony.

Full Text of Christopher Coates’ Testimony to U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (PJM Exclusive)


Wild Thing's comment.......

Coates did an awesome job. He was courageous while giving such detailed testimony This should be front page news.

His background is as an ACLU lawyer for over 8 years before going to DOJ and then worked in the voting rights section, he’s not a right winger. So what this speaking out he is doing tells me he is really ticked off and wants people to know the truth.

He might want to think about protection of some kind.

I also found it interesting that there were more cases opened under the Bush Administration than the Clinton Administration. The media would not say this though.

Justice is currently arguing in court that it not only has the right to ignore whatever laws it doesn’t like, but that it has the right to actively stop States from exercising their own Constitutional police powers, for its citizenry. This is their idiotic case against Arizona. And we have the State Dept Hillary reporting Arizona to the UN human rights commission. The Precedent lying about Arizona at every opportunity and the federal government aligning with Mexico in an all-out assault on America. This is the America we have, today.

Nothing says anarchy quite like a ruling elite that decides on its whim whether to prosecute the laws as written. And then, only to protect some of the people that it favors. I fear we are headed into a constitutional crisis. This administration simply does not recognize the law as binding it to anything it doesn’t like

If thuggishness at the polls is not treated harshly, we will see more of it. There truly are still some American heroes. Thank you Mr Coates, for your courage.

And this is far from the only politically motivated failure of justice from the DoJ. There is their treatment towards ballots from overseas military. And there’s the illegal firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin.

More Threats From Obama As He Warns: Support 'Palestine' or 'More Blood' Will Flow

Obama warns: Support 'Palestine' or 'more blood' will flow

Comment prompts question whether Palestinians distinct from other Arabs


Without world support for establishing an independent Palestine, President Obama warned the United Nations General Assembly today that "more blood will be shed" and "Palestinians will never know the pride and dignity that comes with their own state."

Though couched with references to Israeli security and a "neighbors who are committed to coexistence," Obama's observation prompted a provocative question and little known insight into the Palestinian-Zionist identity conflict from the author of a bold new book about the Nazi links to Islamic jihadists.

"Are the Palestinian Arabs a distinct people apart from other Arabs?," asks Chuck Morse, author of "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj. Amin Al-Husseini."

"The Arab residents of Palestine," he says, "most of whom emigrated there alongside the Jewish emigration and did so in order to take advantage of the increased economic opportunities that accompanied the Jewish immigration, considered themselves to be either part of the emerging Jewish state or as part of a greater Arab state."

The "underreported" role of al-Husseini "reveals volumes" about the confusion and controversy, says Morse. The founder of Arab Palestine, al-Husseini, was appointed as Mufti of Jerusalem and as the head of the Arab Higher Committee by the British in the Palestine Mandate in 1921.

Before the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, Morse continued, the region – named Palestine by the British – spent more than four centuries as part of the Ottoman province of Syria.

"Husseini," said Morse, "was a pan-Arabist who viewed the region first as part of Syria and later as part of the Ummah, or the Arab motherland."

During World War II, Husseini stayed in Berlin where "after meeting with Hitler, he was regarded by the Nazis as the exiled head of a future Nazi-Arab state."

Husseini, Morse says, raised "the profile of Jerusalem is a site important to Islam."

"He raised funds in Arab and Islamic countries to gold plate the Dome of the Mosque known today as the Dome of the Rock by claiming that there was a Jewish conspiracy to blow it up," Morse says.

In researching "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism," which reveals the forgotten roots of Islamic radicalism during World War II and documents how Hitler's ideology still impacts the Middle East today, Morse reached some stark conclusions about Islam's "deceptive nature and merciless intents."

Even an ardent critic of Morse's claimed "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism," was a "well-researched and, strangely enough, factually accurate though its conclusions are questionable [since in links] elements of Middle Eastern Islam with the original Nazi Party, and was able to bring the influence forward to the modern day, however questionably."

Interestingly, Morse says, the main holy sites of Islam are Mecca and Medina and the few references to Jerusalem and Israel in the Quran "actually call for the creation of a Jewish state."

Winston Churchill, says Morse, divided the British Mandate of Palestine along the Jordan River into East Palestine – or Trans-Jordan – and West Palestine or Cis-Jordan.

Trans-Jordan, Morse continues, "would be recognized by the U.N. as the Kingdom of Jordan in 1947" and was to be exclusively Arab Palestine, while Cis-Jordan, or Palestine, "would likewise be recognized as Israel by the U.N. in 1947."

From the 1948 Israel war of Independence and until the 1967 Six Day War, the region west of the Jordan River that was occupied by the Kingdom of Jordan was known as West Jordan and the Arabs living there were Jordanian citizens, said Morse.

"Ahmad Shukairi – the founder of the PLO – stated in 1969 that 'Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan,'" said Morse. "PLO member Abu Iyad recounted in his memoir 'Palestinian without a Motherland' that he and other PLO members had been advised by the North Vietnamese to develop the 'two-state' idea in 1973."

So the North Vietnamese, said Morse, actually "advised Iyad to 'stop talking about annihilating Israel and instead turn your terror war into a struggle for human rights. Then you will have the American people eating out of your hand.'"

Soon, he said, the "Soviet-sponsored PLO continued their war against Israel both through terrorism" and through promoting the "diplomatic artifice that has become known as the 'two-state solution.'"

"But always," said Morse, "the movement for Palestinian Arab sovereignty west of the Jordan River remains nothing more than a vanguard movement seeking the eventual destruction of the State of Israel. And President Obama is simply its latest spokesperson."

Ahmadinejad Stinks Up New York Hotel and Other Guests Leave

Ahmadinejad's food 'stinks up hotel'

Iranian leader refuses to eat food prepared by hotel's chefs, instead brings private chef from Iran to cook his meals. Hotel guests complain of foul odor

YNet news

Something besides the Iranian leader’s nuclear plans or calls to destroy Israel seems to be bothering residents of the Big Apple and guests at the hotel in which he is staying. The New York Post reported that hotels guests complained of a foul odor in the hotel caused by the food cooked especially for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The leader of the Islamic Republic does not eat the food prepared by the hotel chefs for guests, but instead brought his own personal chef from Iran to cook his meals for him.

Guests told the New York Post that his meals “stunk up the hotel,” prompting them to leave the hotel and seek lodging elsewhere.

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan absolutely destroying Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Reform of Social Security

Wisconsin GOP Rep. Paul Ryan absolutely destroying Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a discussion on reform of Social Security. Ryan said he has tried to address the massive debt and insolvency of Social Security and Medicare on an “adult level,” but Wasserman Schultz just kept trotting out the same old tired attacks Democrats have used for years on the issue.

Ryan is offering straight talk and real solutions to preserve the Social safety net for current seniors, and provide something long-term for younger citizens.

Notice how Ryan’s eye-rolls at Wasserman Shultz’s attacks are priceless!


Congressman Paul Ryan continues his efforts to advance an adult conversation on the urgent need to protect Social Security for current and future generations. Ryan's efforts were met -- again -- with false attacks earlier today on CNN's Situation Room in a spirited exchange with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. By pushing desperate demagoguery and no solutions, leading Democrats threaten to shred the critical social safety net as our crushing burden of debt explodes and our critical health and retirement security programs collapse.

Facts on Social Security and Ryan's Roadmap

Should politicians continue to cling to the unsustainable status quo, Social Security will not be able to meet its promise to our seniors, imposing painful benefit cuts on those most reliant on this critical program. The Social Security Administration continues to warn of across-the-board 22% benefit cuts for seniors in the heart of their retirement when the Trust Fund is exhausted. Social Security continues to run annual cash deficits, with over $5 trillion in unfunded liabilities.

To meet this challenge, Congressman Paul Ryan offered an invitation for solutions -- putting forward a specific plan the Congressional Budget Office and the Social Security Administration's Chief Actuaries confirmed would save Social Security, making it sustainably solvent for current and future generations. Ryan's legislative proposal -- H.R. 4529, A Roadmap for America's Future -- makes no changes to Social Security for those 55 and older, while offering future seniors the same health and retirement security options enjoyed by Members of Congress.

- Ryan's reforms make no changes in the program for Americans 55 and older, while strengthening Social Security so it will be there for future generations.

- Ryan's Roadmap secures the social safety net where it is most needed -- providing an increased benefit for low-income individuals, while making modest adjustments in the continued growth of benefits for wealthier seniors.

- At the center of the false attacks are Ryan's proposal to offer future seniors (those now 54 and younger) the option of guaranteed, personal accounts to help fulfill the mission of retirement security.

- Under Ryan's Roadmap, future beneficiaries would remain in the traditional government-run system, unless they choose to direct a portion of their payroll taxes to guaranteed personal accounts, owned by the individual, managed by the Social Security Administration, and guaranteed by the Federal government. Neither the traditional system or optional accounts system would be privatized.

- In the personal-accounts system, the accounts are managed and overseen by Social Security Administration - not a stockbroker or private investment firm. Those choosing the personal-accounts option would select from a handful of low-risk, government-regulated options — just as Members of Congress and Federal employees do with the Thrift Savings Plan.

- Ryan's Roadmap includes a fully-financed, government-backed guarantee so that individuals would get back, at minimum, every dime contributed to the optional, Social Security-managed accounts offered to those now 54 and younger.

Obama and Democrats Denying Our Soldiers The Vote!!!!

Denying Our Soldiers The Vote

Investors Business Daily

The Department of Justice is failing to enforce a law that protects the voting rights of soldiers overseas. They're allowed to fight and die for their country, but they can't vote for its leaders?

Last Saturday was the deadline under the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE) for states to have sent unmarked absentee ballots to soldiers overseas so they can exercise the same right to vote as those they risk their lives to protect, including Afghans and Iraqis.

The MOVE Act, passed with overwhelming bipartisan support last year, says states must provide overseas ballots 45 days before a federal election. Waivers can be granted under certain circumstances, but only if states can prove the votes of service members can still be cast and counted.

Five states — Delaware, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Washington — were granted waivers. Other states have indicated they were having difficulty complying, though it's hard to fathom what prevents them from ensuring service members from their states can vote.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who co-authored the law, says that despite repeated inquiries, DOJ has provided no substantive information on the level of compliance or how Justice intends to enforce the MOVE Act.

"This law represents the most meaningful reform in this area in decades, but it is not going to enforce itself," Cornyn wrote in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.
"Full compliance by the states depends on the DOJ making it a priority. The disenfranchisement of military voters must come to an end. If it is allowed to continue, it will represent a shameful failure to honor the heroic service of those who defend America."

A spokeswoman for the Israeli U.N. mission said this absence was due to the Jewish holiday of Sukkoth, the Feast of Tabernacles. "It's not a boycott," the spokeswoman said.

I noticed something that really once again proves how the media hates Israel. I was switching channels and stopped on CNN, Wolf Blitzer said..... Israel waks out on Obama's speech. Then went on for a few minutes about it, then the station break and then when they came back he FINALLY said it was not a boycott it was due to a Jewish holiday. This is a pure example of propaganda on the left. The wanted to make sure they got their hate out there for Israel to their moranic regular viewers for as long as possible before they oh just happened to mention it was due to a Jewish holiday . sheesh!

Regarding Obama and the UN, I would love to have BOTH of them off our soil and never come back again. Put it in Kenya or something and kick him out with it.

Obamacare Is Even Worse Than Critics Thought ~ We Have GOT To Stop Obamacare!!!!

Obamacare is even worse than critics thought

Washington Examiner

Six months ago, President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rammed Obamacare down the throats of an unwilling American public. Half a year removed from the unprecedented legislative chicanery and backroom dealing that characterized the bill's passage, we know much more about the bill than we did then.

A few of the revelations:

* Obamacare won't decrease health care costs for the government. According to Medicare's actuary, it will increase costs. The same is likely to happen for privately funded health care.

* As written, Obamacare covers elective abortions, contrary to Obama's promise that it wouldn't. This means that tax dollars will be used to pay for a procedure millions of Americans across the political spectrum view as immoral. Supposedly, the Department of Health and Human Services will bar abortion coverage with new regulations but these will likely be tied up for years in litigation, and in the end may not survive the court challenge.

* Obamacare won't allow employees or most small businesses to keep the coverage they have and like. By Obama's estimates, as many as 69 percent of employees, 80 percent of small businesses, and 64 percent of large businesses will be forced to change coverage, probably to more expensive plans.

* Obamacare will increase insurance premiums -- in some places, it already has. Insurers, suddenly forced to cover clients' children until age 26, have little choice but to raise premiums, and they attribute to Obamacare's mandates a 1 to 9 percent increase. Obama's only method of preventing massive rate increases so far has been to threaten insurers.

* Obamacare will force seasonal employers -- especially the ski and amusement park industries -- to pay huge fines, cut hours, or lay off employees.

* Obamacare forces states to guarantee not only payment but also treatment for indigent Medicaid patients. With many doctors now refusing to take Medicaid (because they lose money doing so), cash-strapped states could be sued and ordered to increase reimbursement rates beyond their means.

* Obamacare imposes a huge nonmedical tax compliance burden on small business. It will require them to mail IRS 1099 tax forms to every vendor from whom they make purchases of more than $600 in a year, with duplicate forms going to the Internal Revenue Service. Like so much else in the 2,500-page bill, our senators and representatives were apparently unaware of this when they passed the measure.

* Obamacare allows the IRS to confiscate part or all of your tax refund if you do not purchase a qualified insurance plan. The bill funds 16,000 new IRS agents to make sure Americans stay in line.

If you wonder why so many American voters are angry, and no longer give Obama the benefit of the doubt on a variety of issues, you need look no further than Obamacare, whose birthday gift to America might just be a GOP congressional majority


The Obamacare and Obama Tax Hike Double Whammy on Seniors

The Heritage Foundation

No demographic was more opposed to Obamacare’s passage and no group wants to see the law repealed more than America’s seniors. They know that Obamacare used Medicare as a piggy bank to transfer half a trillion dollars out of Medicare, not to shore up Medicare’s solvency, but to spend on a new government program. As if that were not enough, now President Barack Obama wants to raise taxes on the dividend payments that millions of seniors depend on for their livelihood. American seniors are beginning to wonder when they’ll stop being target #1 of President Obama’s economy-crushing policies.

Obamacare’s Impact on Seniors:

Obama repeatedly promised Americans that if they liked their current health plan, they could keep it. But as Heritage analyst Robert Book and Ethics and Public Policy Center fellow James Capretta detail in their new analysis of Reductions in Medicare Advantage Payments, that is demonstrably not true for millions of senior citizens. Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are the private insurance options available to Medicare beneficiaries. In 2006 (the latest figures available), Medicare covered only 59 percent of traditional beneficiary health care expenses. Ninety-one percent of all Medicare beneficiaries have some sort of supplemental coverage. Obamacare is going to change all that.

The new law imposes deep cuts in the payment rates for MA plans, beginning with a payment freeze in 2011. In addition, the other indiscriminate payment cuts to hospitals and health care providers will also get passed on to MA plans as well. Book and Capretta calculate that the average nationwide per capita reduction in the value of coverage for MA and would-be MA enrollees will total about $3,700 annually by 2017, or a nearly 27 percent cut from what would have occurred without the new law. Faced with these cuts, MA plans will be forced to raise premiums, reduce benefits or leave the market entirely. The President’s own Medicare chief actuary estimated that the number of seniors with MA plans will drop from 10 million today to just 7.4 million in 2017.

The Obama Tax Hikes’ Impact on Seniors:

The top tax rates on qualified dividends are scheduled to jump from 15 percent to 39.6 percent on January 1, 2011. The left will claim that these tax hikes will only soak the rich while lower-income Americans will enjoy a free ride. This is false. Higher taxes on dividends will reduce the value of all corporate stocks traded in U.S. markets, regardless of who owns them. According to some estimates, the tax hike on dividends would cause stock prices to drop by more than $211 billion. The reduction in share values would happen almost immedi­ately at the beginning of 2011, or whenever Congress makes clear it will allow the rate to rise. Seniors hold the most stock of any demographic group, so the Obama tax hike is a direct assault on the retirement security of millions of Americans.

And that’s not all. Millions of seniors also rely heavily on dividends to supplement their Social Security income. And when dividend payments are taxed at a much higher rate than capital gains (as they would be after the Obama Tax Hikes), companies that return value to shareholders by paying dividends are penalized. As Heritage fellows Rea Hederman and Patrick Tyrrell detail, companies will therefore pay out less in dividends. Retirees who rely on dividend income from stocks will then see their annual income decline. For tax year 2010, seniors are almost twice as likely to report dividend income on their tax returns as any other demographic group. Low-income households are also more likely to own dividend-paying stocks than high-income households. They will all be victims of the Obama Tax Hikes.

The imminent threat to senior citizen’s health care will only be resolved once Obamacare is repealed. And the only way to protect senior’s retirement savings is to reject the Obama Tax Hikes.


Obamacare law’s heavy impact


ObamaCare will impose a 3.8% tax on all home sales and other real estate transactions, not just on families making more than $250,000 a year — which was what Obama famously promised during the ’08 presidential campaign.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Only a pathetic complete moron would think this was ever a good idea.

If we don’t stop Obamacare and stop it soon, it will get to the point that it will be to late. They want a single payer system and force insurance companies out of business. When that happens, there will be no health care at all. If the insurance companies go out of business, how long will it take to rebuild them? With no health insurance available to the public, there will be no hospitals or doctors. They couldn’t afford to stay in business and the general public couldn’t afford the cost. The worst of the worst I realize that , but it is something I have been thinking about.

It's a far reaching law that was created in a short time, in a vacuum of those affected, pushed by an administration without bipartisan support, put out as law without having time for anyone outside of the political realm to digest and really understand what the implications are and signed into law with 71% of the people opposed to it. The real deals were made behind closed doors by those that stated they will be more transparent.

This CANNOT end good. Decisions of massive, near epic economic proportions were made based on “feelings” and “ideology” and in a vacuum of -ALL- the real stake holders, to include those paying for this (Business and the insured). The law is huge in what it will affect (The insured, insurances, Businesses, pharamcueticle/medical companies, doctors, hospitals......) and what it will cost, but little time was put into actually thinking everything through and what the second order and tertiary effects will be.

Over time this will turn into a mess.

And that tax that is added for Obamacare if a person sells their home a tax on the sale of our homes has NOTHING to do with health care!

"Stinky" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad At Un Says 9-11 Attacks Done To Help Economy

The US delegation walked out of Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's address at the United Nations. At the time Ahmadinejad was denouncing the United States' history of colonialism while incorporating it with the September 11th attacks on the nation.

Other things he said at UN:

* Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who arrived in New York on Sunday for the UN General Assembly meetings this week, described international sanctions against his country as meaningless and ineffective, as consternation about Iran’s nuclear future grows. When asked about Fidel Castro’s recent comments, in which the Cuban leader told Ahmadinejad to stop attacking the Jews, denying the Holocaust and being anti- Semitic, Ahmadinejad said he is not an anti-Semite. “We’ve never been anti- Semitic – when was I anti- Semitic?” he said. “The Jews live in Iran, like every other person who lives in Iran freely.” ~ Jerusalem Post

* Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that an attack on his country's nuclear facilities could spark a war with "no limits," US media reported. He also suggested that the Holocaust had been exaggerated as a "pretext for war," during a New York meeting with US media owners and editors. "The United States doesn't understand what war looks like. When a war starts, it knows no limits," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying in response to a question about any US-supported strike by Israel on Iran's nuclear facilities. "The United States has never entered a serious war, and has never been victorious. " ~ AFP

* Ahmadinejad is to address the General Assembly on Thursday, but spoke to other audiences in the days leading up to his speech.
Speaking before a group of Muslim figures in New York on Monday night, Ahmadinejad said “the Iranian nation will never recognize the Zionist regime,” Iran’s Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.
“Palestinians can cut the hands of the aggressor and put an end to the Zionist regime’s presence in the region,” he reportedly said. ~ Jerusalem Post


Wild Thing's comment........

First, Canadians walked out on Iranian regime president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad , then later in the day the Canadian President gave his speech but no one else in his delegation was there.

The today Obama gave his speech and not until Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke and did his spewing of hate.....then the US delegation walked out.

The US ought to walk out of the UN entirely. Close it down... knock down the building and kick all of them off our soil.

Foxnews said the UK delegation also got up and left right after the Americans did.

Ahmadinejad is nuts besides all the other things he is, his contraditions about what he has said and feels about Jews is amazing and shocking. He is a liar to himself as much as to everyone else.

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that an attack on his country’s nuclear facilities could spark a war with “no limits,” US media reported.

Yo Mahmoud is Thursday good for you? And, by the way, we weren’t expecting limitations? We will be planning on sending you on the fast elevator to hell. And to begin with we could always show him the “After” photos of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

"The United States has never entered a serious war, and has never been victorious,"

What rock is this idiot living under?

Ahmadinejad said Tuesday during a conversation with reporters in New York that the Holocaust was exaggerated in order to create a pretext for starting a war.

Previously he has stated that the Holocaust never happened; now he admits the Holocaust happened, just exaggerated. Mensa candidate, not.

Rush: Obama Thinks People 'Got Screwed' When U.S. Founded

Rush: Obama thinks people 'got screwed' when U.S. founded

'Everything was peachy keen in America until those racist Europeans showed up'


Rush Limbaugh says President Obama holds the attitude that the original residents of America "got screwed" when the United States was officially founded.

The allegation came during the top-rated host's program today, as he analyzed Obama's speech last Wednesday at the Congressional Hispanic Congress.

The key section that has become controversial has Obama discussing the days before the American Revolution, which can be viewed at the 21:36 mark on this YouTube video:

Obama stated:

Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples: to British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican – (applause) – to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land. We didn't always get along. But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together – what made us all Americans – was not a matter of blood, it wasn't a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The actual quotation from the Declaration of Independence is:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

"He leaves out 'Creator,'" Limbaugh said. "It was a speech that was on the teleprompter. Either it was on the prompter and he omitted it, didn't say it, or it was not on the prompter. Regardless, it was a purposeful omission."

He continued: "This is the thing that's tough for people to get their arms around. They've elected somebody who actually has a grudge against the country as founded. Anytime that I have evidence that concurs with my no-question-about-it-correct opinion, I'm gonna use it. So, eliminate 'Creator,' eliminate God when quoting [the Declaration], and then make the statement, 'Before America came around, boy, look at all these wonderful people who were here who got screwed when America was founded.'"

Limbaugh gave his personal translation of Obama's comments about America before the nation's establishment, saying,

"We used to share it, everything was copacetic, everything was fine and dandy and then the white European settlers arrived and hello environmentalist – this is right out of the multicultural curricula. The white Europeans arrived, we got syphilis; we got horses; we got environmental destruction; we got racism; we got sexism; we got homophobia. Prior to all those people showing up, this was a dreamland."

He attributed Obama's belief system to Black Liberation Theology, which he absorbed from his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

"In Black Liberation Theology, which is the teaching of Rev. Wright," said Limbaugh, "the genocide of the American Indian is a major tenet. Wright preached it constantly, the genocide of the American Indian and Obama heard it. It's a huge, huge deal. And people who speak this way are really just saying everything was peachy keen in North America until those racist Europeans showed up and started oppressing everybody. That's what he believes."

Limbaugh then provided what he called "the money quote" from the book "A Black Theology of Liberation" by James Cone, the mentor to Rev. Wright:

"The extermination of Amer-Indians (American Indians), the persecution of Jews, the oppression of Mexican-Americans and every other conceivable inhumanity done in the name of God and country, these brutalities can be analyzed in terms of the white American inability to recognize humanity in persons of color."
"This is who animates and informs Rev. Wright who then goes to the pulpit and preaches sermons based on this stuff," Limbaugh explained. "Two and two equals four."
Referring to Obama, Limbaugh said, "Understanding who this guy is, folks, is crucial."


Rush Limbaugh: If you Voted for Obama, you DESERVE to be in Misery and be Unemployed! ~ DITTO That I Could Not Agree More!!!


Wild Thing's comment...........

The other day I posted about how he left out about " Creator ". in his speech. But there was more to what he said and this is part of it. The fact that he lies about our history or is he that stupid. He has to apologize on everything, every single thing about America. Not only is this jackass not fit to be President he isn’t fit to be a citizen. He’s a disgusting air sucking piece of flesh.

La Raza talking points are one thing, actual history is something else.

Maybe he is referring to Mexican restaurants, which were here long before Taco Bell.

You know the way he keeps messing up with the history of the USA, ( remember the other things he has said too in the past). Obama doesn’t know anything about American history!

I agree and I am so angry at those who voted for this jerk obama. I hold everyone of them accountable for the misery, destruction etc. obama has brought upon our country.

Democrats Rhetoric and Attacks Rises Ahead of Midterms

"Cheap" Seats But Obama Can’t Even Fill a 650 Seat Room!

Over at the left-wing Daily Beast, Gail Sheehy has a story that should make every Obamaite tremble in fear of November 2. As Sheehy reports it, in New York President Obama couldn’t even fill a room that holds 650 even though they slashed the ticket prices from $500 to $100 a person to get in.

On the 22nd Obama appeared in New York for a fundraiser but organizers found that attendees were harder to come by than ever. As Sheehy points out, this is six weeks before the elections. Less than two months and Democrats can’t garner enough enthusiasm to sell 650 tickets to see the president up close and personal.

Initially tickets were priced at $500 a person but as the event neared, panic set in and emails began to gush from the organizers offering bargain basement, slashed ticket prices in order to fill the room. Sheehy paid just $100 to stand in the same small room with The One and she only anted up after half a dozen emails pleading that she come.


The Daiily Beast

Six weeks before the election, President Obama couldn’t fill the ballroom at the Roosevelt Hotel, despite cheap tickets on offer. And then he was met by hecklers.

Who would have thought that six weeks before a cliffhanger election, President Obama would have to reach down to the D list to fill a room to listen to him? Most of us low rollers arrived early to see President Obama up close and personal. Our tickets for the general reception at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York were only $100. Some thought the email invitation was a joke. Some bought tickets for $50 from their desperate Democratic committeeman. Some bought the same day.

It’s Filene’s,” enthused Sharon Douglas, reliving her heady days as a volunteer in Obama’s 2008 campaign. The doorman beckoned conspiratorially and ushered us out one door and in through another to stand at the back of the $500 line. Their crowd came from Wall Street in car services and killer heels. Our crowd came on subways in flats and scuffed teacher’s shoes.

Only after I received four email invitations and two personal calls imploring me to come did I call Speaker Pelosi’s office to check the admission price. “You mean, to be in the room with the President of the United States is now on fire sale for $100?”


“How long do we get?”

“Half hour.”

“How many $100 givers have rsvp’d?”

“Mmmm 250.”

“Do we need to line up early to get in?”

“That’s not necessary. Everybody will get in.”

And everybody did—450 people in a room that holds 650. Even Obama’s fire sale didn’t sell out.


Wild Thing's comment......

If you read a teleprompter to an empty room does Obama still make a sound????

Did Obama pull strings for New Black Panthers?

Did Obama pull strings for New Black Panthers?

Renewed push to uncover documents that could blow lid off 'intimidation'


A new lawsuit has been filed by Judicial Watch, the Washington watchdog organization, seeking documents that may reveal possible White House political influence over the decision to abandon large portions of the 2008 New Black Panther voter intimidation case.

The move comes on the heels of revelations that a longtime Democrat operative was involved in a series of e-mail exchanges with the Department of Justice at the time the decision to drop most of the case was being made.

A summary of e-mails obtained under an formal information request revealed that Democratic election-lawyer Sam Hirsch was involved in the DOJ decision to dismiss the voter intimidation counts against several New Black Panther Party members.

The revelation appeared to contradict the earlier Department of Justice testimony that such connections to political figures were not a part of the case.

Now Judicial Watch is demanding, through the Freedom of Information Act, all records "related to meetings between Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli and White House officials regarding DOJ's decision to dismiss its voter intimidation case."

The action seeks:

Any and all records of Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli concerning meetings with the White House on the Justice Department's voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. The time frame for this request is from January 20, 2009 to June 15, 2009.

The case developed following complaints about the behavior documented in a video of New Black Panther Party members at a Philadelphia polling station during the 2008 election.

The Department of Justice originally filed a lawsuit against the party and its members over the Nov. 4, 2008, incident. The video reveals a member of the New Black Panther Party brandishing a police-style baton weapon. According to multiple witnesses, members of the New Black Panthers blocked access to polling stations, harassed voters and hurled racial epithets.

When the defendants refused to answer the charges, the case essentially was won by the government, with only the penalty portion of the adjudication left the resolve. However, after President Obama was inaugurated, his chosen department leaders suddenly abandoned the case, against the recommendation of their own staff members, and dismissed the majority of the charges.

Judicial Watch, then, sought details of what had prompted the sudden course reversal.

It was on March 26 when the DOJ informed Judicial Watch that it had conducted a search for documents but found "no records responsive to your request." Judicial Watch then appealed, based on "various media accounts in which it was reported that Associate Attorney General Perrelli visited the White House on nine occasions between March 25, 2009, and May 27, 2009, to discuss defendant's voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party."

Eventually, as part of its questions over the alleged involvement of Perrelli and other top political appointees in the decision to dismiss the charges, despite sworn testimony from Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, Judicial Watch obtained from the federal department a draft "Vaughn" index revealing some of those links.

The index, a privilege log, describes documents that continue to be withheld. It details 122 documents, including more than 600 pages that remain withheld. The documents are to be discussed at a court hearing scheduled Oct. 5 before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton in Washington.

But Judicial Watch believes there are more questions that need to be answered.

"Why should anyone believe the Justice Department's story regarding these records? We now know Justice officials falsely stated that no political appointees were involved in the Black Panther decision," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton today. "The Justice Department continues to withhold hundreds of pages of records that could shed light on this scandal. And despite multiple press reports documenting Perrelli's White House meetings, the Justice Department cannot find a single record related to these meetings. We're tired of getting the run-around and that’s why we sued."
Fitton earlier said Perez "seems to have been less than candid in his sworn testimony when he said no political appointees were involved in the decision [to drop charges against the New Black Panther Party members]."

But the Vaughn index material confirms the existence of a series of e-mails between Assistant Deputy Attorney General Steve Rosenbaum and Deputy Associate Attorney General Sam Hirsch, who, according to Judicial Watch, "was described by 'Slate' magazine as a 'DC election lawyer who represents a lot of Democrats.'"

The revelations included:

An "E-mail Chain with Attachments" from Rosenbaum to Hirsch dated April 30, 2009: The e-mail chain includes '…a detailed response and analysis of the proposed draft filings in NBPP (New Black Panther Party) litigation…The response includes a candid assessment of legal research and raises questions about the case law and proposed relief. ... This document also contains attorney discussion, opinions, and analyses of the draft documents and case law."

Perez had told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on May 14, 2010, that there was no such participation.

According to Judicial Watch, the exchange went:

Commissioner Kirsanow: Was there any political leadership involved in the decision not to pursue this particular case any further than it was?

Assistant Attorney General Perez: The decisions were made by Loretta King in consultation with Steve Rosenbaum, who is the acting deputy assistant attorney general.

But Judicial Watch said, for example, a May 10, 2009, e-mail from Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, the third highest ranking official in the DOJ, asks "Deputy Associate Attorney General and former Democratic election lawyer Sam Hirsch," "Where are we on the Black Panther Case?"

It includes Ogden's "current thoughts on the case."

Judicial Watch reported, "Another e-mail from former Acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King, dated May 12, 2009, was distributed to Attorney General Eric Holder through Odgen and Perrelli. Entitled, 'Weekly Report for the Week ending May 8, 2009,' the e-mail 'Identifies matters deemed significant and highlights issues for the senior offices, including an update on a planned course of action in the NBPP (New Black Panther Party) litigation.'"

Fitton said what is known is that "top political leaders inside Obama Justice Department were involved in the call to drop the Black Panther case." And he said "at least one top Justice official said otherwise under oath."

House Republicans To Release " A Pledge To America " Today

House Republicans will be releasing their Pledge To America today.

Full 21 page Document here...A PLEDGE TO AMERICA


This writing below is from the

America is more than a country.

America is an idea -- an idea that free people can govern themselves, that government's powers are derived from the consent of the governed, that each of us is endowed by their Creator with the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America is the belief that any man or woman can -- given economic, political, and religious liberty -- advance themselves, their families, and the common good.

America is an inspiration to those who yearn to be free and have the ability and the dignity to determine their own destiny.

Whenever the agenda of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to institute a new governing agenda and set a different course.

These first principles were proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, enshrined in the Constitution, and have endured through hard sacrifice and commitment by generations of Americans.

In a self-governing society, the only bulwark against the power of the state is the consent of the governed, and regarding the policies of the current government, the governed do not consent.

An unchecked executive, a compliant legislature, and an overreaching judiciary have combined to thwart the will of the people and overturn their votes and their values, striking down long-standing laws and institutions and scorning the deepest beliefs of the American people.

An arrogant and out-of-touch ruling class of a few makes decisions, issues mandates, and enacts laws without accepting or requesting the input of the many.

Rising joblessness, crushing debt, and a polarizing political environment are fraying the bonds among our people and blurring our sense of national purpose.

Like free peoples of the past, our citizens refuse to accommodate a government that believes it can replace the will of the people with its own. The American people are speaking out, demanding that we realign our country's compass with its founding principles and apply those principles to solve our common problems for the common good.

The need for urgent action to repair our economy and reclaim our government for the people cannot be overstated.

With this document, we pledge to dedicate ourselves to the task of reconnecting our highest aspirations to the permanent truths of our founding by keeping faith with the values our nation was founded on, the principles we stand for, and the priorities of our people. This is our Pledge to America.

We pledge to honor the Constitution as constructed by its framers and honor the original intent of those precepts that have been consistently ignored -- particularly the Tenth Amendment, which grants that all powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

We pledge to advance policies that promote greater liberty, wider opportunity, a robust defense, and national economic prosperity.

We pledge to honor families, traditional marriage, life, and the private and faith-based organizations that form the core of our American values.
We pledge to make government more transparent in its actions, careful in its stewardship, and honest in its dealings.

We pledge to uphold the purpose and promise of a better America, knowing that to whom much is given, much is expected and that the blessings of our liberty buoy the hopes of mankind.

We make this pledge bearing true faith and allegiance to the people we represent, and we invite fellow citizens and patriots to join us in forming a new governing agenda for America.


Wild Thing's comment.......

I believe the conservatives in the GOP have learned their lesson. Why? Because in 2 years we can get rid of THEM too and they know it. It's time for unity, and to support these conservatives in the GOP in getting us back on track. I'm proud of them for rising to the occasion. And it's up to US to KEEP THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE. I feel many conservatives are equally to blame for what has happened to America, ( remember how so many said they wuold not vote in 2006 and then Pelosi was set in place with their majority of democrats in power ) so I hope and pray we keep being part of the solution in partnership with the Tea Party and the conservatives in the GOP.

As Expected Obama and His White House On The Attack About Republicans " Pledge To America" ~ Obama HATES America!

White House quickly attacks GOP 'Pledge'


The White House immediately attacked the House Republicans’ election agenda rollout Wednesday evening, claiming the 21-page “Pledge to America” plan will “take America back to the same failed economic policies that caused this recession.”

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, writing on the White House blog, said Republicans “doubled down on the same ideas that hurt America’s middle class,” listing tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, tax hikes for the middle class, “cutting rules and oversight” for financial services, health care and oil, all while adding to the deficit.

Republicans would counter that they are trying to cut taxes across the board and save taxpayer dollars by a federal hiring freeze and caps on spending. The agenda will be formally unveiled at an event in Sterling, Va., Thursday, in a rollout reminiscent of the 1994 Contract with America.

Pfeiffer notes that the document does not mention education, clean energy, protecting Social Security and bolstering infrastructure.
“This is the same agenda that caused the deepest recession since the Great Depression, costing 8 million jobs, wiping out trillions in family wealth and setting middle-class families back,” Pfeiffer wrote. “Instead of a pledge to the American people, Congressional Republicans made a pledge to the big special interests to restore the same economic ideas that benefited them at the expense of middle-class families.”


Wild Thing's comment.........

The purple, yellow and UN blue of “Yes We Can” meets the Red, White and Blue of “We the People” in November.

Do these fools think the American people aren’t noticing that thanks to the Tea Parties across our country the GOP is purging itself right now and operating on a completely different platform. This is not the ‘same policies of the Bush years’. This is a whole new set of people and a whole different vision.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, writing on the White House blog, said Republicans “doubled down on the same ideas that hurt America’s middle class,” listing tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, tax hikes for the middle class, “cutting rules and oversight” for financial services, health care and oil, all while adding to the deficit.

Someone needs to tell him that the GOP did not raise middle class taxes. And that there is a reason to be sparing with rules and oversight. Regulation costs money, which is ultimately paid by the consumer.

We cant afford these idiots.

A-hem idiot LIAR Democrats, DEMOCRATS have been in charge of congress since 2006.

DEMOCRATS drove the economy into the ditch.

Diclose Act VOTE Is Today! Pro-Union bill, Card Check and Other Obama Destruction

Union-label Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has hatched a plan to ram the speech-killing "Disclose Act" through the Senate IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. This is an emergency, so if iyou can please call and/or email your U.S. Senators IMMEDIATELY and insist they vote for free speech and against the "Disclose Act" (S. 3628).

The fact is, Big Labor's cronies on Capitol Hill are just days away from ramming the "Disclose Act" down the throats of the American people. In fact, this dangerous bill has already passed the House.

Though the so-called "Disclose Act" is being sold by Big Labor as a bill to provide greater transparency, its real intent is to harass and intimidate those who might criticize members of Congress into silence during the midterm elections and beyond.

Big Labor doesn't want us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to inform the American people which candidates stand with them -- and which ones stand with the union elite.

But, of course, like all the other insider games here in Washington, there is a big loophole.

You see, Big Labor is exempted.

They'll still be free to spend their BILLION dollar forced-dues war chest in virtually any way they see fit in complete secrecy.

If passed, the so-called "Disclose Act" -- more properly referred to as the "Incumbent Protection Act" -- would:

* Impose sweeping new regulations on organizations like the National Right to Work Committee, to keep them quiet and cripple their effectiveness during election years;

* Force grassroots organizations to publicize and release the names of their top five contributors making them vulnerable to threats, intimidation or worse from political dissidents;

* Require organizations to expose the location of their top donor's home and workplace in the disclaimer at the end of every television ad.

The union bosses know they are running out of options to save their handpicked politicians before the November Elections. That's why they are going all out to silence you and me.

The fact is opposition from freedom-oriented groups like your National Right to Work Committee had the "Disclose Act" bottled up in the House of Representatives until the National Rifle Association cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to exempt itself and a few large liberal groups. This is all the more reason you must stand up and make your voice heard in the Senate right away.

You can Call the SENATE SWITCHBOARD -- 202-224-3121


Wild Thing's comment.......

I know we are all getting really tired of having to fight tooth and nail for our basic freedoms. sheesh. Holding the elected officials to the fire each and every time.

We have been fussing and fretting and writing and praying and campaigning and blogging and...................I could go on and on. This Administration is constantly busy trying to change America (and, certainly not for the better).. We're constantly pushing back and trying very hard to show them how we feel.

This administration is doing everything possible to wear us down. They are wrong! WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE DON'T QUIT. LIVE FREE OR DIE!

God keep all of us safe and give us the strength and courage to defend our freedoms and our country.

Stunning Allegations About Obama in New Book

Barack Obama To Bob Woodward This Past July: "We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger."

From Woodward's new book, quoted in the Washington Post.

Regarding Bob Woodward’s new book, “Obama’s Wars”

Bolton: Obama Is "Cold-Blooded, Cynical" And Manipulates National Security


"If the book is accurate ... it is some of the most cold-blooded, cynical, grotesquely political manipulation of national security that I think we've ever seen."
"The notion that a President would say that in that kind of callous and just utterly robotic way, I think is yet further indication that Obama is simply not qualified to be Commander-in-Chief," Bolton added.
"Obama is divorced from the American people, I think he is unemphatic, I think he is 'show that' and I think the American people have the wit to know what that means," Bolton concluded.

Barack Obama To Bob Woodward This Past July:

“We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger.”

…the left is pushing this idea that we can safely “absorb” many new 9/11′s with an eye towards getting us to “accept” the greater bargain they fatuously offer — peace, and a general wind-down of post-9/11 security “overreactions” like the FBI tracking Muslims suspected of terrorist ties. If only we didn’t overreact to the occasional mass-murder, we could go about our business without war, without increased security measures, without “Islamophobia,” without the rest of it.

The problem, you see, is primarily within us, those being targeted for murder. If only we understood that this was a good bargain in exchange for living in a multicultural country and global economy, then we could be good citizens of the world and not lash out so terribly and uselessly when some of the more aggressive proponents of multiculturalism blow up a few of our buildings.

Liz Cheney, daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, said the remark "suggests an alarming fatalism on the part of President Obama and his administration."

Here's the full statement:

"Americans expect our President to do everything possible to defend the nation from attack. We expect him to use every tool at his disposal to find, defeat, capture and kill terrorists. We expect him to deter attacks by making clear to our adversaries that an attack on the United States will carry devastating consequences. Instead, President Obama is reported to have said, 'We can absorb a terrorist attack.' This comment suggests an alarming fatalism on the part of President Obama and his administration. Once again the President seems either unwilling or unable to do what it takes to keep this nation safe. The President owes the American people an explanation."


Wild Thing's comment........

Barack Obama To Bob Woodward This Past July: "We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger."

How ‘bout you “absorb” it Obama. We’ll watch!

What president in his right mind would say this to the American people ?!!!

Unbelievable that a President, a father, a husband would be prepared to absorb an attack rather than take a pre-emptive strike?????

We didn't "absorb" it. We kicked the sh** out of the people that were responsible (in Afghanistan).

Political Ad by Citizens for the Republic..."“There’s Mourning in America”

This is a political ad by Citizens for the Republic, this ad is a takeoff on the famous “It’s Morning in America” ad that spearheaded President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign.

“Under the leadership of President Obama, our country is fading, and weaker, and worse off. His policies were a grand experiment – policies that failed. This November, let’s choose a smaller, more caring government – one that remembers us.”

In 1984, the Reagan reelection campaign set the standard for modern political advertising with its fabled "Morning in America" series, which included one of the greatest political ads of all time -- "Better, Prouder, Stronger." The ad captured the zeitgeist -- America under President Reagan was coming back, full of optimism and confidence in the future.

Today, the zeitgeist is exactly the opposite. Americans are worried about their future, and about a government determined to implement policies that just don't work. But like its predecessor, "Mourning in America" offers a new hope -- if we can just get our government to return to time-tested policies that can spark a rebirth of liberty.


This is the 1984 Reagan ad, “Morning in America”


Wild Thing's comment........

I wish these good ads like this would be playing on TV and often. It is great that we get to see them, but this kind of ad needs to be seen by more people and honestly not all people use computers even in todays' world.

Ground Zero Imam Exposed Off-Mic

Check out Rauf “off-mic”

Ground Zero Imam Exposed Off-Mic

Front Page Magazine

“Bridge builder” Imam Feisal Abdel Rauf, the Muslim cleric behind plans for the Ground Zero mosque, has now been exposed as a man of shrewd cunning and as a calculating stealth jihadist who supports the creation of an Islamic State, “The Ummah,” right here in America.

An interview has surfaced in which, after being assured that it has ended, Imam Rauf speaks “off-the-record” and reveals some intriguing plans and views that he has regarding America and the world. The interview, given on June 20th, 2006, sees Rauf speaking about his “game plan” for achieving an Islamic State without borders, which — in his mind — has previously existed and should have continued to exist, if not for Western interference in the last century.

The Ground Zero mosque imam also discusses some of his other objectives which include: (1) manipulating U.S. foreign policy, (2) advocating for Hamas and (3) getting “power” on his side to push back the opposing “interests.” In one part of the “post-interview,” he also boasts that he advised and influenced former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and that he has a blurb on the back of one of her books.

To get a closer look at the psychology and true “game plan” of Imam Rauf, let’s take a closer look at some of the more intriguing quotes from him in this interview:

“9/11 was a watershed, was a major catalytic force in, in catalyzing the attention towards the issue of Islam, it’s presence in the West.”

This quote clearly reveals that the Imam sees 9/11 mainly as a major opportunity, a milestone in advancing Islam. In other words, he holds that the murder of 3,000 Americans is now facilitating the work of nice “moderate’ Imams like himself in America.

“How America should really engage with them [Hamas]…Helping her [Madeline Albright] understand the role of religion. She supported a Jewish State in the Middle East; why not support an Islamic State?”

When Rauf learned that the interview was over, he opens up regarding his advocacy for Hamas and how he advised and influenced former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright — with whom he claimed to have had constant contact. Rauf warns of the need to deal with Hamas lest we lose this organization to bad guys, like Syria or Iran, as if Hamas is not bad enough on its own. This is the same threat this ‘man of peace’ is warning America with — to never upset the Islamic street “or else.”

“We have designed our Cordoba Initiative to be designed, in other words, we have 5 major areas of our program. So we have foreign policy, is one area, you have communications is another area, you have education as the third area, for example, you have intra-Islamic issues is the fourth area, arts and culture is the fifth area.”

Why would Cordoba, which he claims to be a “cultural center,” have a “foreign policy” section that would develop “strategy action play”? What is it exactly he going to educate Americans about? Will he send Muslim coaches to American schools to teach sensitivity training to watch out for the feelings of Muslims? Or might he demand to educate American kids about how to pray to Allah?

“If the entertainment media, the news media, was broadcasted in print, describe and speak about the issues in a different way it can help change perceptions profoundly, because it’s the media, which helps shape perceptions to a great degree. So if we have strategic action plays, designed plays, in the area of foreign policy, in the area of healing the divide, and then you unpack and give up Israel. You then have to have your offensive coaching stuff, your offensive coach and defensive coach and your head coach, we have to have our Palestinian coach, etc.”

Rauf speaks here like a war strategist who wants to use the media to shape perceptions to promote his strategic action plays in the area of foreign policy. Rauf and I are both of Egyptian origin and I think he is still dreaming of the good old days when the Egyptian media propaganda machine I lived under and participated in was at its strongest. Before moving to America, I was a journalist and media censor in the Middle East News Agency. There is no other way to interpret what Rauf wants: to use the media the way the tyrants and dictators of the Middle East do: as a traditional Islamic tool of indoctrination, misinformation and propaganda.

Watch how clever Rauf inserts words like “healing the divide” right before hitting us with “you unpack and give up Israel.”

“I am the head coach of this strategic initiative and the President of the United States, or the President of Malaysia, or the President of England, is like a player you want to bring in for particular plays. We look at it as American football, you want to gain yardage.”

Are we supposed to believe that these are normal words of a peaceful Sufi cleric? What is it that he wants to win in yardage, one yard at a time? These are clearly grandiose plans of what appears to be a borderline delusional narcissist who admits he plans to manipulate U.S. foreign policy, the U.S. president, the “president” of England (someone please inform the Queen on that one!) whom he considers as just “players” in his grand scheme.

When he is asked who he considers to be “the enemy,” he answers:

“You have to make sure you are not pushed back, you have to make sure you have power on your side to be able to push the ball forward.” Is this ‘community building’ or a war strategy?

Mr. Rauf goes on to speak of his vision of the Islamic State:

“I don’t want a demographic Islamic State, it is not a part of our tradition and never was until recently.” He added “Egypt, Alexandria, had 400,000 Greeks” “We created the notion of demographic Nation State whereas before that they were all living together.”

Rauf has an illusion of an Islamic State that never was and never will be. For some reason, I’m hearing John Lennon’s song “Imagine” (there’s no countries… no borders etc).

Rauf’s true self, motives and objectives have been exposed in this interview. To him, the hard Jihad of 9/11 was just a catalytic beginning that facilitated his form of stealth Jihad. Soften the American public with a huge explosive terror act that divides Americans and sends their heads spinning, then comes Rauf to save the day with his community “bridge-building” at Ground Zero. To him, 9/11 was just a strategic move in an Islamic/Western chess game. With both violent and stealth jihad coordinating their efforts and by playing the old “good cop-bad cop” routine on the American psyche, Rauf aims at becoming the Muslim hero in America who will join those who want to break down America’s borders brick by brick until finally one day America is transformed into a Sharia-compliant Islamic state.

Faisal Rauf is the typical double-faced Islamist who speaks from both sides of his mouth. Even his book has one “nice” title in English to fool the West, while in Arabic it advocates Sharia from Ground Zero. While claiming that his mission is non-political, just community building, his interview not only exposes him but more importantly exposes Islam’s goals and the fact that “moderate” Islam can work in perfect harmony and in conjunction with radical Islam.

Imam Rauf is dangerous, but what is more dangerous is our State Department which has has been facilitating the agenda of a clearly megalomaniacal stealth jihadist.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Shouldn’t a drone be moving in on this guy by now? Obama actually has known terrorists representing this country! Uggghhh !

This scum is a jihadii and a big wig in the Sharia law movement.

We are all a witness to taqiyya in operation. More proof that there is no such thing as a moderate muslim- and they use taqqiyah to lie their way to their goals. Interesting word he uses “objectives”. It can be demonstrated that those “objectives” have to do with eventually bringing Sharia to all of America. Obama is obviously aiding the Imam to meet his objectives. Then there's the media.

Only 6 Weeks Till Our Vote In November and Pelosi Says "we will have a great Democratic victory" Plus Obama Begs For "enthusiasm"

Nancy Pelosi: "We Will Have a Great Democratic Victory"

NPR: "If your party does lose the House would you step aside as leader?"

PELOSI: "First of all , I don't accept that premise in any way shape or form. The momentum is with us. We are out there to dispel many of the misrepresentations that have been going out there for nearly two years by the Republicans and the special interests, the oil industry, the health insurance industry, the banks and their allies.

We're out there. Our members are great articulate spokespersons for their point of view into their districts. And district by district we feel very confident about the election

And we believe that six weeks from today, six weeks from Wednesday of this week we will have no regrets but instead we will have a great Democratic victory"


We're six weeks out from the Nov. 2nd elections—and Obama is asking his fellow commies to get involved.

"I need everybody here to step up their game, it's not gonna be enough to go to the polls, we've got to have the same energy, we've got to have the same enthusiasm"

Home Depot Founder Comments on Obama's Socialism

Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot and the company CEO for eighteen years, has no problem explaining the destructiveness of the Obama administration with wit and sharp insights. He is eighty-one and very sharp.

Greg Hengler at featured a CNBC interview with Bernie Marcus that is required viewing for anyone not happy with the Obama administration.

Watch the first of these clips and you will be hooked and watch the rest of them.

Marcus on the tenured academics Obama surrounds himself with and Obama moving around “the peasants”, i.e. the American voter:


On the “villains and monsters” who create American jobs from the “monster” who has created over 300,000 jobs. Marcus “apologizes” for being such a “disgusting human being.”


What should American business leaders do? Stop being politically correct and educate your employees on the consequences of who they support in elections.


Marcus offering to teach a course at Harvard to American business leaders: Courage 101


Marcus suggests a new reality show: [Treasury Secretary] “Timothy Geithner Does Small Business” to make government people understand the challenges faced by small business leaders. Note Marcus’ explanation why a small businessman who struggles for years making little money needs to be able to keep more of his income when he finally succeeds. He may make $500,000 in one year, but he has struggled barely making ends meet for years and could face another loss in the following years. You have to let the small businessman reap the reward to make up for all the losses and break even years if we expect him to take enormous personal risk and create opportunities (i.e. jobs) for other people. “It’s called jobs, stupid!”


Wild Thing's comment.......

Go, Bernie! hahaha

One of the things people think when they hear the words “tax breaks for the wealthy” is that the wealthy pay no taxes. We all know Home Depot, tax breaks or not, still pays a bunch of money in taxes.

In fact, Home Depot paid last year $3,326,000,000 in income taxes. That’s $3.326 Billion in income taxes.

Yet, we will hear every black, hispanic, and white trash liberal claim Home Depot pays nothing because they are getting “The Bush tax cuts for the rich!”

Obama's Aunt Says "“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.”

“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.” ..Zeituni Onyango

She complains that “America’s dream became America’s worst nightmare. I have been treated like public enemy number one.”

Zeituni Onyango telling us exactly what she thinks about all of the taxpayer money she’s basically stolen for the past several years.

“If I come as an immigrant, you have the obligation to make me a citizen.”

“I didn’t take any advantage of the system. The system took advantage of me. I didn’t ask for it; they gave it to me. Ask your system. I didn’t create it or vote for it. Go and ask your system.”

When it was reported in 2008 that Onyango was possibly in the country illegally, Mr. Obama said he had no knowledge of her status.

Onyango, the half-sister of Mr. Obama's late father, moved from Kenya to the United States in 2000. She first applied for asylum in 2002, citing violence in Kenya, according to the Associated Press. Onyango's request was rejected in 2004, but she stayed in the country, living in public housing in Boston.

Sen. Dick Durbin Vows to Keep Fighting for Passage of "The Dream Act"

Sen. Dick Durbin spoke on the Senate Floor today after a cloture vote failed 56-43 that would have brought up the Defense Authorization Bill with the “Dream Act” amendment attached to it.

Durbin vowed to continue fighting for the “Dream Act,” and challenged the “11 Republicans” who have supported it in the past to stop “cowering in the shadows” and vote for it when it is brought up again in the future.

Durbin called passage of the “Dream Act” his “highest priority.”

Harry Reid and Blanche Lincoln Vote "NO" on Cloture for Defense Bill

This is a video of Democrat Sens. Blanche Lincoln and Harry Reid voting “no” on the cloture vote to bring up the Defense Authorization Bill, which included amendments on getting rid of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and proposing passage of the “Dream Act.”

Reid was pushing for adoption of the bill and the amendments, but if you watch the video, you will see Blanche Lincoln enter the screen at the top right. She indicates her vote “no” on bringing up the bill. She then walks around to Harry Reid and pats him on the back while saying something to him. Then, notice that Reid walks back to his desk, faces the clerk and votes “no” on the bill.

From a friend that has been keeping up with this particular bill.

"Sen. Reid had to vote “No” if he wants to move to reconsider the bill at some point in the future. Thus, his “no” vote was a parliamentary decision.."

Wild Thing's comment........

I checked around and my friend is correct. The Senate rules are that by voting no Reid retains the right to re-introduce the bill. Otherwise it would be dead.

All R’s were no votes, except Murkowski who did not vote.
Here are all the votes:

STOP The Vote TODAY On The DREAM Act ~Inside Defense Authorization Bill,Senate Vote scheduled 2:15pm

Taken from the presidential campaign videos:

One last point I want to make on the immigration issue because we may be moving to different topics: Something that we can do immediately that I think is very important is to pass the Dream Act, which allows children who through no fault of their own are here but have essentially grown up as Americans, allow them the opportunity for higher education...said Obama.


The open-borders lobby is out in full force to get the illegal alien student bailout passed.

Vote Scheduled for 2:15 TODAY

Harry Reid, “I heart undocumented Americans” Reid has announced he’ll attach a DREAM Act amendment to the defense appropriations bill:

Defense Authorization bill will address the DREAM Act and discrimination in the military (Sen. Harry Reid)

The Hill

This work period, the Senate will consider the Defense Authorization bill. Along with critical support for our national security forces around the world, this legislation will address two other important issues that are long overdue.

Passage of this bill would overturn the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ rule for our armed forces. We will finally send a loud and clear message that everyone who steps up to serve our country should and will be welcomed regardless of sexual orientation.
We are also offering an amendment to pass the DREAM Act. This amendment will ensure that millions of children who grow up as Americans will be able to get the education they need to contribute to our economy. Students who come to America before age 16 and who have been here for five years should be able get their green card after they go to college or serve in the military. And many who have volunteered to defend our country can finally become citizens of it.


From Michelle Malkins blog

The NYT Monday morning pleads with the McCain/Soros Republican wing of the party to come back to the DREAM Act fold. Alinsky’s avenging angels are pounding the pavement, staging rowdy sit-ins, and shutting down traffic to get what they want.

As the Socialist Worker Online puts it: They are “undocumented and unafraid.”

Additional info on the The Defense Authorization Act (which includes DREAM Act and repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell)

“It cuts lots of programs designed to defend America, including Missile Defense, some F-35 funding, and there is some BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) stuff in it as well. Finally, it decreases the size of the US Navy.”

You can read more about it HERE.......National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011

It also includes a controversial provision permitting abortions at military facilities, and cuts to the Iraqi Security Forces (and there will be no chance to debate these or any other defense-related issues.)

Yes Obama Went To Church Last Sunday BUT To Hear A MUSLM Speaker!

Obama goes to church to hear a Muslim speaker!

Yesterday, on Sunday, September 19, 2010, the Obama family attended church for only the third time in a year. They went on foot to the St. John’s Episcopal Church situated across the Lafayette Park.

But what is widely not reported by the White House and the MSM is that on that particular Sunday in that particular church, Dr. Ziad Asali, M.D., a Muslim, founder and president of the American Task Force on Palestine, was the guest speaker. He was there to speak on the subject of “Prospects of the two-state solution in the Middle-East.”

According to the website of the American Task Force on Palestine, it is a “non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, DC.

” The organization describes itself as “dedicated to advocating that it is in the American national interest to promote an end to the conflict in the Middle East through a negotiated agreement that provides for two states – Israel and Palestine – living side by side in peace and security.”

Dr. Ziad J. Asali is described as “a long-time activist on Middle East issues” who has testified to both chambers of Congress about Palestinian interests, increased U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority, and “Israel’s disproportionate use of force” in Gaza. A retired physician, Asali received his early medical training at the American University of Beirut. He previously served as President of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) and Chairman of the American Committee on Jerusalem (ACJ), which he also co-founded He also served as the President of the Arab-American University Graduates (AAUG).

Next Sunday, September 26, 2010, another guest speaker, Dr. Aaron David Miller, a Public Policy Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, is scheduled to speak on the same subject. Dr. Miller was a State Department Analyst and Negotiator from 1978 to 2003. According to the Wilson Center, his expertise lies in US-Middle East relations, Arab-Israeli negotiations, Arab world and Palestinian politics and Israeli politics. He has appeared on major network television as a guest, and his writing has been internationally published. His latest published book is titled The Much Too Promised Land; America’s Elusive Search For Arab-Israeli Peace and was published in 2008.

Wild Thing's comment........

IMO, ANY “church” that invites such a speaker is no longer a Christian church. What kind of “Christian” church would invite a speaker from a heathen religion to spread their propaganda and false religion to their flock?

I also googled Miller and the church too, and Miller is a Progressive. And we all see that Muslims and Progressives are tight nowadays.

Speaking of Progressives, I did some online research on St John’s Church Lafayette Square and discovered their Progressive ties. Because the commenting software here rejects comments with more than one or two links, I can’t share all that I discovered. But here’s a bit of it.

From St John’s Church Lafayette Square web site:

St. John’s is a member of WIN, a faith-based grassroots political organization dedicated to improving the life of all residents of the District of Columbia. Founded in 1996, WIN is multi-faith, multi-racial and non-partisan. It has nearly fifty church, synagogue, union, and public school members, representing 25,000 families in every section of the city.

WIN is affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the oldest and largest community organizing network in the United States. with more than 60 faith-based community organizations across the nation, including BUILD in Baltimore, MD and AIM in Montgomery County, MD.

From the WIN web site:

Washington Interfaith Network
an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation

From WIN’s FAQ page:

What is the IAF?
The IAF is the Industrial Areas Foundation, the country’s oldest and largest community organizing network. The IAF was founded in the 1940s by Saul Alinsky, who organized the country’s first neighborhood association, “The Back of the Yards Council,” in Chicago’s South side. Today, the IAF has affiliates in more than sixty cities. Each affiliates has its own name, sets its own agenda and hires its own lead organizer. The various affiliates come together for training and for regional leadership development. For more information on the IAF, visit

The entire WIN/IAF FAQ page – the entire WIN site, actually – is just as sickening as the paragraph copied, above.

Hypocritical Mexico Is Now Building Their Own Wall On Border With Guatemala...Press Ignores


570 miles - Guatemala/Mexico boarder crossing


Hypocritical Mexico is now building their own wall on border with ignores


The Inter-Press Sevice (IPS) is reporting that the head administrator of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, has confirmed that his government is building a wall in the state of Chiapas, along the Mexican/Guatemalan border.

The official reason is to stop contraband from coming into Mexico, but as Diaz admitted: “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.”

According to Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights, 500,000 people from Central America cross into Mexico illegally every year.

Just as Mexican authorities have opposed the construction of a fence by the U.S., along our border with their country, Mexico is now receiving a great deal of criticism from the Guatemalan government.

The executive coordinator of the National Bureau for Migration in Guatemala, Marila de Prince, told a local newspaper: “It is not a correct measure being taken by the Mexican government.”
Erick Maldonado, executive secretary of Guatemala's National Council on Migrants said: “We are watching the Mexican government's initiative with concern because the migrants are in a situation of highest vulnerability, as demonstrated by the massacre in Tamaulipas, where five Guatemalans died.”
Maldonado said the wall “is going to make the migrants' situation worse, because to meet their needs they are always going to find blind points where there are no migration or security controls, which implies greater risks."
Vice-President of Guatemala, Rafael Espada, said: “The walls are not the solution to the problems.”

The Catholic Church has been highly critical of U.S. treatment of illegal aliens, and one priest in Central America used the news of the Mexican wall to take another shot at the American people.

Father Francisco Pellizari, of the Casa del Migrante told IPS: “The dramatic increase in the cost of 'polleros' (human traffickers) and the corruption of the authorities is the result of the walls the United States plans to build and has built along the border. We can transpose the Guatemala case to this situation and the results will be the same.”
Peliizari said border walls “are supposedly intended to halt migration, but that hasn't happened. Instead they have triggered an economic hemorrhage and a shift in the migratory flow to inhospitable routes that lead to thousands of deaths.”

Of course, the U.S. press has completely ignored the story…They excoriate Americans for their desire to simply defend their own borders, but give Mexico a pass for building a wall to keep out illegal aliens.

It’s not about Legal Immigration, It’s about ILLEGAL Immigration, Got it? by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

It’s not about Legal Immigration, It’s about ILLEGAL Immigration, Got it?

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

It is sad to learn that a once popular figure in American culture, General Colin Powell is so far out of touch with reality. In a recent interview on NBC Powell accused Obama of having lost his connection with the people. Unfortunately, General Powell is swimming in same disconnected politics.

The Former Secretary and Army General, both of which are both great and important accomplishments, has shown Americans that he no more comprehends the immigration issue than do Obama and his media shills. In an NBC interview Powell, when speaking of the Republican Party stated, “They’ve got to take a hard look at some of the positions they’ve been taking.” “We can’t be anti-immigration, for example. Because immigrants are fueling this country. Without immigrants [the U.S.] would be like Europe or Japan, with an aging population and no young people coming in to take care of it. We have to educate our immigrants.”

Great observation, but the debate Mr. Secretary, is not about immigration, it is about ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION! The tragedy about Mr. Powell is that he, like the propaganda arm of the socialist/democrat party is out of touch with mainstream Americans; AND WE’VE HAD IT! For my part, the whiners who “demand” the right to hire and pay illegal immigrants slave wages; who cry that Americans will not do the work that illegals are hired to do (pay a fair wage and Americans will do it. Those who hire illegals render the domestic version of sending jobs overseas); and who foster the illegal invasion across our southern borders should be removed from any public office of responsibility and the latter tried for failure to uphold the Constitution.

Noting the “Constitution,” evidently this Executive Branch of the U.S. government has a problem reading it. First, no one in the Administration bothered to read Arizona SB1070, that State’s illegal immigration control law, then as a follow-up didn’t bother to read the Constitution before taking the State of Arizona to court. But what’s new? Obama only promised to defend it to the best of his ability, which is turning out to be, not at all. In a recent article, a Canadian writer pointed out that there was a problem with the law suit, specifically Article III, Clause 2 which states,

“In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be a Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all other Cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”

The pertinent portion is contained in the first sentence. It seems that Arizona has wasted its time with the District Court and would be well advised to ignore the Ninth Circuit, demanding that if Obama’s Department of Justice wants court action, they should plan a meeting at the Supreme Court.

Powell calls Obama a “Transformative figure?” He’s right! Obama is turning out to be what he has always been and what we have been stating since before the election. He is an America hating, socialist/communist who if he could do it instantly would transform the U.S. into a third world dictatorship!

Jew Hater Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Will Never Recognize Israel as a Jewish State, Suggests Israel Call Itself the “Israeli Zionist Jewish Empire"

Jerusalem Post

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in a Monday night interview with Palestinian news source Ma’an that “Israel was free to call itself the Israeli Zionist Jewish Empire.”

The PA leader made cynical remarks to Maan shortly after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called upon Abbas to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s ruling faction reiterated that it would not recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

Fatah spokesman Ahmed Assaf rejected demands that the Palestinians accept Israel as a Jewish state, saying it would violate international law and threaten to sabotage the peace talks.

Recognizing Israel as a Jewish state would mean that “millions of Palestinians would be expelled from their historic homes and lands – and this will never happen,” the Fatah spokesman added.

Assaf’s remarks came as PA negotiators prepared to leave for Washington to attend US sponsored direct talks with Israel.

Abbas also said that Israel's Jewishness is none of his business, but "if Israel wanted Palestinian negotiators to recognize its state, it should also recognize a Palestinian state."

Abbas added that negotiations would only continue under a settlement freeze. If the moratorium was extended for one month, he would remain in peace talks for one month, he said.

Earlier on Monday, in a conference call with US Jewish leaders sponsored by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Netanyahu demanded that Abbas recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

"Say yes, just do it," Netanyahu said


Wild Thing's comment........

The whole purpose of “Peace” with the Palestinians is to bring civilization to the lowest common denominator - that squalor which the Palestinians themselves find so appealing.

If every Jew in Israel were to move to another nation tomorrow, the only thing that would change would be the borders of the conflict. They would still attack Jews wherever they found them.

Mexico Newspaper Seeks Publishing Guidelines From Drug Cartels

Members of the Mexican police carry a dead man inside a garage in Ciudad Juarez where five corpses were found. Ciudad Juarez, with 1.3 million inhabitants, is the most violent city in Mexico.

El Diario, biggest newspaper in Mexico's Ciudad Juarez, cedes to cartels; asks 'What can we do?'

NY Daily News

Mexico’s powerful cartels have thwarted military and government crackdowns on drug-related violence and have now become so threatening, one of the country’s biggest newspapers has said it will cut drug war coverage in an effort to keep journalists alive.

El Diario, the largest newspaper in violence-riddled Ciudad Juarez, published a front-page editorial Sunday asking the cartels what it can and can’t publish after a journalist for the publication was brutally murdered – the second slain in less than two years.

“Leaders of the different organizations that are fighting for control of Ciudad Juarez: The loss of two reporters from this publishing house in less than two years represents an irreparable sorrow for all of us who work here, and, in particular, for their families,” the editorial said. “We ask you to explain what you want from us, what we should try to publish or not publish, so we know what to expect.”

El Diario directed the editorial to the country’s cartels, calling them the nation’s de facto leadership in the absence of an effective government strategy to curb their killing sprees.

The move comes as an international media watchdog group planned to push Mexican government officials to make journalist safety a priority, The Associated Press reported. El Diario’s editorial appeared after gunmen attacked two El Diario photographers, killing one and critically wounding the second.

Luis Carolos Santiago, 21, died after being shot several times at close range. Another reporter for the paper was killed in 2008 as he was taking his daughters to school. “We don’t want to continue to be used as cannon fodder in this war because we’re tired,” El Diario editor Pedro Torres, told The Associated Press.

Wild Thing's comment.........

This is a blunt, real demonstration of how easily newspapers are swayed and content therein propagandized (corrupted) to suit whoever the editors are attempting to appease.

The Mexican newspapers are going to be lapdogs for the Cartels like the American Newspapers are for the Democrats. They might as well just turn ownership of the whole paper over to the cartels. Let them write their own copy.

Patrick Leahy warned the President of Mexico to be careful not to violate the civil rights of the drug cartels. I am not kidding you, he actually said that.

Obama Voter Tells Him 'I'm Exhausted of Defending You"

Obama spoke at a townhall meeting today in Washington D.C. when this woman expressed her disappointment in the Obama Administration. Notice how the president laughs off her comments.

"I'm one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I'm exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for," a woman told President Obama at a town hall.

From New York Times

She described herself as a chief financial officer, a mother and a military veteran said she was disappointed that Mr. Obama had not lived up to her once-lofty expectations.
“I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration. … I’m deeply disappointed where we are right now,” she said, adding that when she voted for Mr. Obama, she thought he would change Washington. “I’m waiting, sir. I’m waiting. I don’t feel it yet. … Is this my new reality?”

Moments later, a young man offered a similar theme. He noted that the president had ignited a wave of inspiration for young people and students.

“That inspiration is dying away,” he said. “It feels like the American dream is not attainable for a lot of us. … Is the American dream dead for me?”

Together, the comments reflected the erosion of support among the constituency that swept Mr. Obama into office in 2008. And both were rooted in concerns about the struggling economy and its impact on future generations.

Obama told both attendees to remain hopeful. He defended his administration’s efforts to increase money for student loans, impose new laws on credit card companies and insurance companies, and stabilize the economy.

“I am confident that the American dream will continue,” Obama told the young man, adding that “there is not a country in the world that would not want to change places with us.”
He told the woman who said she was disappointed that “there are a whole host of things that we have put in place that do make your life better,” but he quickly cautioned, “I understand your frustration.”
“My goal here is not to convince you that everything is where it needs to be,” Mr. Obama told her. “But what I am saying is that we are moving in the right direction.”

Obama was just taken behind the woodshed by that Democrat supporter. LOL And they did hand pick the audience.

Affirmative Action Colin Powell Obama's Guy Mouths Off On "Meet The Press" With His Idiot Cliches

Below is what he said about Obama not being a Muslim that you can see on the video.

POWELL: "I would tell my fellow Americans...Think carefully about some of the stuff coming across the blogs and airwaves, let's make a couple of points, one the President was born in the United States of America, let's get rid of that one and go to the birther thing, let's attack him on policy, not nonsense. Next he is a Christian, he is not a Muslim, 20% of people say he is a Muslim. 80% apparently did not believe he's a Muslim.

GREGORY: "31% of Republicans say he's Muslim"

POWELL: "Well, surprise, surprise but I bet you a dollar if the unemployment rate wasn't 9.6, but was down to 4%, then you would find only 5% would think he's Muslim"

He also said this......................

On this same show Meet the Press: Powell said the tea party activists who are driving the opposition against Obama were part of a movement, but they do not yet offer the kind of agenda that makes them a party. They have to offer more than slogans, he said.

"This movement doesn't become a real force until it's— until it starts to talk to the issues," Powell said. "I want to cut spending. I want to have lower taxes. But how do you do that? You can't just have slogans. You can't just have catchy phrases. You have to have an agenda."

And this...............

Powell: Illegals Work on My House

FOX News

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that -- because they fix his house.

Powell, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward."
In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants in the U.S. because they "are doing things we need done in this country."
He added: "They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I'm sure you've seen them at your house. We've got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status."

Powell also said "fringe" elements on the right are taking a low road when they label Obama a foreign-born Muslim and peddle other false theories about non-American influences on the president's character. Obama was born in the U.S. and is Christian.

"Let's attack him on policy, not nonsense," he said.
And he said the tea party may not become an enduring force unless it moves beyond slogans and promotes an agenda that people "can see, touch and actually believe in." It's not enough, he said, to call for goals that most Americans support, such as controlled federal spending and adherence to the Constitution.

The former secretary of state said he still sees Obama as a transformational figure, if one who has lost some of his ability to connect with people.

Wild Thing's comment........

Powell: the angry black man who only got anywhere and only has a forum because of affirmative action.

We all know who had the real moxie as General for the 1st Gulf War and that was General Norman Schwarzkopf.

The Tea Party hasn't formed a third party because most people recognize the RATS win that way.

Powell makes it clear once again where his loyalties lie and they are NOT with conservatives and we know from the past nor with Israel.

Don’t even tell us a damn thing Comrade Powell! Just continue being an Afro-centric Marxist boot-licker until you fade into oblivion.

Regarding his only hiring ILLEGALS , Gee, Powell, you couldn’t find any Americans or Legal residents to do the work? More likely you didn’t want to pay an American or legal resident.

Tokyo Rove Trying To Help Democrats Demands Witchcraft Explanation From O’Donnell

Karl Rove former top Bush aide is demanding that the conservative Republican explain her witchcraft comment from eleven years ago to voters.

Karl Rove, political mastermind for former President George W. Bush, said Sunday that Christine O’Donnell, the Tea Party insurgent who won an upset victory in Delaware for the GOP Senate nomination, “can’t simply ignore” the controversy stirred over the disclosure that she “dabbled in witchcraft” and has to find a way to “explain it and put it in its most sympathetic light and move on.”
“In southern Delaware, where there are a lot of church-going people, they’re probably going to want to know what was that all about,” Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And again, she said it on television when she went on the … the Bill Maher show.”
Rove was referring to an October 1999 appearance O’Donnell made on Maher’s “Politically Incorrect” show where she said,” I dabbled into witchcraft — I never joined a coven. … One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it.” O’Donnell had been on Maher’s show frequently in the 1990s, and Maher has said he is going to show an O’Donnell clip each week until she agrees to appear again.


Christine O'Donnell Responds To Witchcraft Comments


Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is making light of comments she made more than a decade ago about having dabbled in witchcraft when she was in high school.

"How many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school?" she asked fellow Republicans at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware on Sunday.
"There's been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now," O'Donnell jokingly assured the crowd.

Rove, the former GOP strategist and adviser to President George W. Bush, has suggested that O'Donnell's win in last week's GOP primary cost Republicans a chance to retake the Senate seat long held by Democrat Joe Biden before he was elected vice president.

O'Donnell, a conservative Christian activist, rode a surging tide of tea party activism to an upset victory over GOP moderate Michael Castle, Delaware's longtime congressman and former two-term governor. She faces Democratic county executive Chris Coons in November.

O'Donnell's comments about witchcraft were made during a 1999 taping of comedian Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect" show.

Russ Murphy, executive director of the 9-12 Delaware Patriots, a group that joined in the tea party effort to propel O'Donnell to Tuesday's primary victory, said the focus on her comments about witchcraft was just another attempt by pundits and political opponents to discredit her.

And this from FOX News

Christine O'Donnell: No Witchcraft Since High School -- If so, Rove Would be a Supporter

Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell responded to old clips that surfaced over the weekend where she said she had once "dabbled in witchcraft," clarifying at a GOP picnic in Delaware Sunday, "I was in high school, how many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school? But no, There's been no witchcraft since, if there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter."

The jab at the former President George W. Bush senior adviser came after Rove had cast doubt on her ability to carry the state for the GOP and said there are too many questions about her past.

The nominee showed up at the picnic in a key county that helped secure her GOP Tuesday primary upset, despite canceling previously scheduled appearances on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation." Her campaign backed out of the talk show interviews, saying she needed to get back to Delaware and had a scheduling conflict, including attending church and then the afternoon picnic.

She was greeted with a raucous applause at the annual Sussex County GOP picnic with chants of "yes we can" and "yes we will!"

Many in the crowd kept saying "get over it," to the media when she clarified her original witchcraft comments, which included her giving details about a date she had with a witch. The 1999 tape from "Politically Incorrect" first surfaced Friday when Bill Maher aired it on "Real Time with Bill Maher," saying he would keep airing clips until she appeared on his show.

Local Republicans seemed un-phased by the latest clip, which followed other television interviews that surfaced where O'Donnell talked about such issues as sex and condoms on MTV and to Phil Donahue.


Wild Thing's comment........

Karl Rove gets a smack down from O’Donnell:

“How many of you didn’t hang out with questionable folks in high school?” she asked fellow Republicans at a GOP picnic in southern Delaware on Sunday.”
“There’s been no witchcraft since. If there was, Karl Rove would be a supporter now,” O’Donnell jokingly assured the crowd.”

So we are on a witch hunt for something a girl did in high school, almost 27 years ago? Good night! This is scraping off fossilized dirt.

I would never have anything to do with satanic anything. But as she said this was many years ago and it was not something she even stayed with. I understand she is now a Christian and didn’t melt when baptized. heh heh

In the Bible, Paul took great joy in watching Christians being stoned to death, then later went on to spread Christianity to the world. Christine’s dabbling in witchcraft as a teenager pales in comparison. Considering what she is now, a Christian conservative, I find her story of redemption inspiring.

I would imagine that most liberals got into far worse trouble at that age, and many of them never get out of it.

Let's see which is worse, that she dabbled in witchcraft in her youth or that she appeared with Bill Maher, I would say it is a toss up.

And what about all the Progressives, pure communists, others as well that not only have been dabbling in Marxism but are solid Marxist's in our government.

Then we also have Obama dabbling in cocaine.... or the AP article on Biden dabbling in plagiarism.... or the AP article on Hillary Clinton dabbling in talking with the dead. And Hillary, when a grown up, had seances in the WH.

CNN: Book says Hillary talks to dead (Sec State and NY Senator dabbles in seances)

First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton held imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi as a therapeutic release, according to a new book written by Bob Woodward, says a report in Sunday's edition of The Chicago Sun-Times...Woodward says the adviser was Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research, which he describes as a group that studies the psychic experience and altered and expanded consciousness.

Honestly I really think Tokyo Rove clearly has some kind of personal problem here.

Maybe if O’Donnell were into killing babies via abortion or “dabbled” in Marxism like her opponent Chris Coons, she’d be Rove’s ideal RINO.

Hawking’s Grand Design, or God’s? by by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Hawking’s Grand Design, or God’s?

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

A number of weeks ago I wrote a piece in which I used parallel structure of good works by Muslims and Mormons. It was not well considered and in the process the comparison offended some Mormon readers, for that I apologize. Evidently Muslim readers appreciated the comparison in view of the fact that no complaints came from that quarter. Moving on.

Stephen Hawking, a notable theoretical physicist of long standing with accolades enough to paper a room. He is brilliant in the fields of astronomy, physics, and mathematics and has written numerous articles and a number of books on those subjects. He is the recipient of important awards including in 2009, the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom. In short he is an intellectual heavy weight, one of those “smartest person in the room” people.

Hawking was born in 1942. His parents moved from London to avoid wartime danger and later he was educated in Great Britain’s best schools. Hawking has had the opportunity to observe much during his lifetime and has great influence in some circles.

In his recent book, “The Grand Design,” Mr. Hawking stretched credulity beyond his intellect’s vaunted reach. Unlike Einstein and other brilliant physicists who have consistently recognized and acknowledged God or other a “superior intelligence” as responsible for creation of the universe, Hawking and co-author Leonard Mlodinow argue in favor of a spontaneous event as the source of creation that was guided by the laws of physics. If there is a God Hawking claims, “it is the laws of science.”

In a recent interview with British television Hawking stated:

“The question is: is the way the universe began chosen by God for reasons we can't understand, or was it determined by a law of science? I believe the second. If you like, you can call the laws of science 'God', but it wouldn't be a personal God that you could meet, and ask questions.”

If all physical matter can be explained by physics or mathematics it inevitably leads to such questions such as: “Did Einstein invent E=MC^2 or did that theorem exist from the beginning and Einstein discovered it?” I believe the latter. “Assuming that the universe began with a ‘big bang’ what specific laws of physics made it happen?” “How did those laws come to be?” “Who devised them?” Incidentally, one may agree with the “big bang” without contradicting the Biblical account.

Hawking and other scientists theorize ad nauseam about the cosmic genesis; despite his lifelong work on it, Einstein failed to formulate his long sought after “theory of everything;” and, atheists rail against God; yet to their dismay, God’s handiwork stretches unflinching across the universe.

Most scientists describe the universe as finite, elliptical, rapidly expanding and some 15 billion light years across. Expanding into what? For scientists like Hawking the concept of infinite must be overwhelming because one cannot quantify infinity but only acknowledge it.

Imagine standing at the edge of the universe with all of it to ones back, peering out into the darkness. Would there be an outer limit beyond the darkness? If there is a limit what would it be? While standing there suppose one sees a speck of light, would that be another universe? Suppose for a moment that there are an infinite number of universes, each similar to our own like there are galaxies in our own universe. Would the same laws apply? Would God be God of all universes or only of ours? Would that limit God? Even if the latter were so which is not suggested here, God’s “finiteness” would nonetheless confound the most brilliant minds. They cannot explain it and I have faith that God did it all, so any belittling God by even “brilliant” minds does nothing to dissuade me from my understanding of God of the Holy Bible.

God, in Hawking’s world is mathematics and physics, but how did those come to be? One thing is certain, it wasn’t the Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Newton, Einstein or Hawking who invented them. Physics, mathematics and science preexisted their discovery and refinement by brilliant men or women. From whence did brilliant people acquire their minds?

In Hawking’s world everything “just happened,” incident to the laws of physics, math, and biology to name a few, but Hawking’s assertion is but theory given that he has no more proof than do other theories. So, let’s set Hawking’s aside for the moment and replace it with the written “theory,” the Holy Bible for which there is mounting scientific “proof.” Let’s replace Hawking’s with a “theory” that asserts there is an infinite God who knows every flower in the field, and every humming bird, eagle or sparrow; He knows each and every insect and animal, in fact God accounts for every atom, proton, electron, neutron, quark and ever other single sub-atomic particle in existence. That same God, the God of the Bible is a living, personal God who loves his physical and human creation enough that He gave His only begotten son to show us how to live, to die as a sacrifice for all of humanity, and to defeat death and Satan that humanity might live eternally with Him. The God whom I have come to know, knows each perso
n who has ever lived in minute detail even before they were conceived; and “I Am” is His name.

Anyone with normal powers of observation is able to observe both the finite and the infinite, but one should humble oneself enough to acknowledge that mankind can only discover and put to use the knowledge gained from observation. Succinctly put, humankind does not make natural law and can only discover it.

I am persuaded that those natural “laws” are God’s laws; and, that same God is infinite in every conceivable and inconceivable way. Humanity is arrogant enough to enumerate them as Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. But there may be dimensions and/or concepts that are both inconceivable and indescribable and right in front of us, but we cannot see them.

Hawking’s definitive statement: “it wouldn’t be a personal God that you could meet, and ask questions” assumes that God is not personal and that if one could qualify on one’s merit to “meet God” one would be automatically entitled to “ask questions.” What Hawking evidently does not understand or appreciate is that meeting God will indeed happen, and as much as one wants, tries or believes that one is in control, the meeting will not be on one’s own terms, rather, the meeting will be on God’s.

We’ll see how it unfolds as we pass through life which incidentally is at its longest but a speck on the continuum of eternity.

Semper Fidelis

Wild Thing's comment.......

Good write up. I truly belileve a person can't explain the universe without God.

Hawking’s argument appears to be even more illogical when he says the existence of gravity means the creation of the universe was inevitable. But how did gravity exist in the first place? Who put it there? And what was the creative force behind its birth?

Similarly, when Hawking argues, in support of his theory of spontaneous creation, that it was only necessary for ‘the blue touch paper’ to be lit to ‘set the universe going’, the question must be: where did this blue touch paper come from? And who lit it, if not God?

I would ask Prof. Hawking where life came from. You don’t get animate matter from inanimate matter. No way. no how. Where did the genetic material to create an elephant come from? A one-celled amoeba floating around a swamp?

I can’t look at the universe without seeing evidence of God.

And, he fails to recognize the corruption that purchased the votes that allowed the albatross ( obamacare) to be passed.

I sure hope we have big wins in November. America cannot keep taking this destruction.

LOL they cut him off as soon as he said he "was wrong about that".

I wish the Democrat presidents followed the noble example of the Republican ones and leave the stage. We have had to suffer from Carter and Clinton for too long. How can we ever miss you if you never go away? Not that we would miss them if we ever could get them off the air.

Obama Drops 'Creator' From Declaration Quote

In the speech, the former Constitutional law professor quotes part of the Declaration of Independence, but he changed the quote to eliminate the words "by our Creator." (At approximately 1:03.)

(He also mispronounces "unalienable" as "inalienable," but we know he has problems with pronunciation sometimes, (i.e., "corpsman").

Obama drops 'Creator' from Declaration quote

He gives no credit to author of life, liberty, pursuit of happiness


Obama removed the reference to the "Creator" from the Declaration of Independence when he quoted a portion at a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Congress.

Obama said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

But the the actual quotation is:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Wild Thing's comment.......

He says it very slowly and deliberately - and this is not a mis-spoke.
Unbelievable. This is important. This is not just ignorance, or a mis-quote. To leave out the phrase ‘BY THEIR CREATOR’ (and the very meaning of “NATURAL” law) underpins the very concept of ‘inalienable” rights guaranteed to us by that declaration. These ‘natural’ laws are given to us through our Creator, and not by man.

These points are all expounded further within the Federalist Papers. When ‘by their Creator’ is left out there is no longer any rational (or for that matter legal) justification for the endowed “unalienable” rights. Rights that are inborn and independent of any man made laws. Once natural law is removed all of us become subjects of the government and our rights ‘inalienable’ or otherwise are now no longer determined by ‘natural’ law but by man made laws rather than God.

Everyone, this is how freedom dies. The next step is tyranny.

How many want to bet he thinks he is the " creator".

Also this sentence is very telling - "But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together -- what made us all Americans -- was not a matter of blood,it wasn’t a matter of birth.

He keeps exposing his roots!

Rats and mice scramble over his feet with impunity when he speaks, and there are always those clouds of flies ~ he frequently reaches out to grab a snack. He literally is Beelzebub ~ LORD OF THE FLIES.

The Islamic call to prayer he would have recited flawlessly.

Just another opportunity for Satan's No. 1 sycophant to profane America's founding documents.

White House Press Corps Asking Dictator Obama Why He Bypassed Constitutional Authority

"Why not make her director, Mr. President? Why not submit her to confirmation?," CBS' Mark Knoller asks President Obama after he announced she would oversee a new consumer protection agency.

This video shows the members of the White House Press Corps asking President Obama if he has “bypassed Constitutional Authority” as he walked away after announcing Elizabeth Warren as an “Interim” appointment lead the newly created “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.” Obama is bypassing the need for Senate confirmation by making her an “interim” appointment rather than a director. Many doubt even enough Democrats would support her confirmation. So, Obama is, indeed, bypassing Constitutional Authority to get what he wants.

Wild Thing's comment........

He really has DICTATOR down pat.

Obama avoids press conferences, obama avoids honest dialogues where he would have to answer to questions about his moves & motives. He really believes he is above the rest of us... doesn't have to explain himself to anyone.

Racist Obama Urges Blacks To Vote, "guard the change"

Obama urges blacks to vote, "guard the change"


Barack Obama, seeking to fire up an important part of his support base ahead of November's elections, told black leaders on Saturday he wanted their support to "guard the change" he was delivering.

"I need everybody here to go back to your neighborhoods, and your workplaces, to your churches, and barbershops, and beauty shops. Tell them we have more work to do. Tell them we can't wait to organize. Tell them that the time for action is now," he told the Congressional Black Caucus.

The words of America's first black president showed a deliberate effort to recapture the enthusiasm that had helped him win the White House in 2008, after polls showed African- Americans much less likely to vote than whites this year.

"It's not surprising that a lot of people may not be feeling that energized or that engaged right now," he told an annual awards ceremony hosted by the organization representing black members of the U.S. Congress.
"A lot of folks may be feeling like politics is something they get involved in every four years when there's a presidential election, but they don't see why they should bother the rest of the time," he said.

Republicans could make big gains in November as high unemployment and slowing growth turns voters away from Obama's Democrats, potentially costing them control of Congress.

A Gallup survey in early September found only 25 percent of blacks had given 'quite a lot' or 'some' thought to the November 2 congressional ballot, compared to 42 percent of whites.

This represents a much larger gap than during the presidential election in 2008, when the two groups were about equal in their intention to cast a ballot.

High turnout in the African-American community, together with the enthusiastic support of young voters, was a striking feature of the 2008 election and an important part of Obama's strategy in securing the White House.

Success in repeating at least part of that performance in the upcoming midterm poll, when voter turnout is traditionally low, could make a big difference to congressional Democrats running in close races. All 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 37 of 100 Senate seats are up for grabs.

"The last election was a changing of the guard -- now we need to guard the change," Obama said

Wild Thing's comment.......

So he is saying.....It’s us against whitey and the infidels. Hmmmmm

This total jerk is bound and determined to start a real race war before he is ejected from office.

Obama, has NOTHING to do about race, it has everything to do with that you are destroying our country. Your Hope has been redistributed. Here's your Change. Obama's parting shot at a country that rejects his marxist agenda.

Why do blacks need Black leaders? It seems like indentured servitude not freedom. It Ihas to be an illness of the mind. A variant of that mental affliction called liberalism.

"...he wanted their support to "guard the change" he was delivering."

"Guard the change"???

You mean like the now 20% unemployment rate among young black men? That change? You mean like the highest ever recorded stat for percentage of Americans in poverty? That change?

Those so-called black leaders should have stood up and booed Obama in unison for that remark.

America Haters Welcomed By White House NYC Mayor, And PC Media By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

America Haters Welcomed By White House NYC Mayor, And PC Media

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Last weekend, the major media with few exceptions commemorated its brainwashing of America by linking the ‘mosque controversy’ with what should have been an obscure threat by a Florida pastor to burn Korans.

Worse, both received about as much media time as the remembrance of 3000 innocent lives violently destroyed by Muslim extremists (which is why Americans properly resent the location of a proposed ‘Islamic Center’ by an Imam who has publicly supported Hamas and Sharia Law). No one will forget that tragedy on September 11, 2001 which was preceded by numerous fatal attacks around the world propagated by Jihadists during the prior three decades.

The brainwashing process starts at the White House and trickles down to Mayor Bloomberg, with the major network media acting not only as complicit messengers but unauthorized apologists on behalf of America.

Question: Since when did respect for the Koran rise above that for the Holy Bible---the book of Christianity which undergirds America’s heritage?

Question: Why has the press engaged in willful negligence and wreck less endangerment of our military and religious missionaries by creating hype out of a small town ‘incident’ in Florida which deserved no national or international coverage?

The facts speak for themselves. The White House and Dept of Injustice pay no lip service to the increasing attacks upon Christianity and Judaism here or abroad, while publicly submitting to Islam. The Administration is so immersed in political correctness run amok and empathy for Obama’s Muslim background that it no longer acknowledges the reality of Islamic extremism and its war against the Western World! This conclusion and its ramifications were published by a panel of national security experts this week and appeared in the Washington Times:

Examples of submission to Jihadists include events leading up to and following the Fort Hood massacre, the shoe bomber’s failed attempt to explode 300 passengers over Detroit, and the recent attempted detonation of a device in downtown NYC. Some Americans have slowly been brainwashed into apathy or complacency while ignoring these rising threats to our liberty and self- determination. Shame on them!

The Obama Administration misrepresents and disrespects the will of the People as it attempts to charismatically peddle its perverted totalitarian ideology to a declining number of ignorant voters.

The Left uses role reversal, projection and creation of crises in its assault on America’s foundations and its quest for totalitarianism when taxpayer money is distributed without Congressional authorization and without coverage by the complicit media under the guise of ‘economic stimulus’ to those who campaigned for the Obama Administration (Unions and certain ethnic groups), while ignoring the private sector which creates jobs; when radical Islamic terrorists are given rights normally accorded U.S. citizens instead of being tried and punished for their murderous actions by a military tribunal; when states rights are trampled after states pass laws to enforce existing but unenforced Federal immigration laws; when over half million illegals are allowed to go free by our Dept. of Injustice after being apprehended and scheduled for court hearings; when legal gun retailers are imprisoned for unknowingly selling firearms to illegals who possess stolen identities; when a man is arrested in Long Island for firing warning shots at the ground when threatened by military-style gang members on his property; when capital investors are thrown under the bus by government and Union interests; when the Secretary of State falsely incriminates one of our states for human rights abuses in front of a UN council composed of some of the worst human rights offenders in the world; when same Secretary attempts to circumvent the Congress and trample our Constitution by subjecting American citizens to UN rules; when the Dept. of Injustice looks the other way when racist supremacy groups are allowed to threaten citizens at polling places.

The Obama Administration shows respect for those who have inflicted great harm upon civilized peoples worldwide and his Administration persecutes its own citizens through abuse of the legal system at taxpayer expense. The balance of power no longer exists when the Supreme Court is composed of politically correct ideologues, some handpicked by an anti-American president who values totalitarianism over our Constitution.

Americans are historically a people of tolerance towards other cultures and religions. But tolerance cannot include submission to proponents of Sharia who are according to the panel’s report ‘Muslim supremacists waging civilization Jihad’, nor to Sharia Law which is not just a religious code but “seeks to regulate all manner of behavior in the secular sphere — economic, social, military, legal and political." which runs counter to our Constitution and our culture.

Likewise, We The People have no reason to tolerate the current tyrannical Left which inflicts destruction on our value system based upon liberty and rugged individualism. Americans who are loyal to our heritage of ‘government by the people and for the people’, which accords more importance to the individual than to state government and a much smaller role for Federal government, must extricate our government from the dangerous hands of totalitarian kidnappers.

Documentary Film ....OVERDOSE: The Next Financial Crisis

This movie on the causes of the financial crisis was produced in Sweden by Henrik Devell, directed by Martin Borgs, and narrated by Johan Norberg, a Senior Fellow at Cato Institute.

Here is a description of from their web site:

In times of crisis people seek strong leaders and simple solutions. But what if their solutions are identical to the mistakes that caused the very crisis? This is the story of the greatest economic crisis of our age, the one that awaits us.
When the world’s financial bubble blew, the solution was to lower interest rates and pump trillions of dollars into the sick banking system. “The solution is the problem, that’s why we had a problem in the first place”. For Economics Nobel laureate Vernon Smith, the Catch 22 is self-evident. But interest rates have been at rock bottom for years, and governments are running out of fuel to feed the economy. “The governments can save the banks, but who can save the governments?” Forecasts predict all countries’ debt will reach 100% of GDP by next year. Greece and Iceland have already crumbled, who will be next?
The storm that would rock the world, began brewing in the US when congress pushed the idea of home ownership for all, propping up those who couldn’t make the down payments. The Market even coined a term, NINA loans: “No Income, No Assets, No Problem!” Enter FannieMae and FreddieMac, privately owned, government sponsored. “Want that vacation? Wanna buy some new clothes? Use your house as a piggie bank!” Why earn money to pay for your home when you can make money just living in it? With the government covering all losses, you’d have been a fool not to borrow.
The years of growth had been a continuous party. But when the punchbowl ran dry, instead of letting investors go home to nurse their hangovers as usual, the Federal Reserve just filled it up again with phoney money. For analyst Peter Schiff, the consequence of the spending binge was crystal clear: “we’re in so much trouble now because we got drunk on all that Fed alcohol”. Yet along with other worried experts, he was mocked and derided during the boom.
Have you taken out a mortgage, invested capital or bought shares? If you have, likelihood is you lost out in the latest bust. Governments promised decisive action, the biggest financial stimulus packages in history, gargantuan bailouts: but what crazed logic is this, propping up debt with…more debt? This documentary brings an entirely fresh voice to the hottest topic of today.

Of all the presidents our country has had NO one has done more damage then Obama and NO party has done more damage then the democrats. And sadly and with extreme outrage this has all mostly been done since the Dems gained the majority in both houses and then when Obama got in our White House.

Obama Endorses Global Taxes and Endorses United Nations to Fully Implement Agenda 21

UN to fully implement Agenda 21, Obama to endorse plan at 9/20-22 Summit

The United Nations 2nd Committee will bring to consideration full worldwide implementation of Agenda 21 to the 65th General Assembly.

"Under the sustainable development umbrella, the Committee was expected to consider implementation of Agenda 21, the Programme for the Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the outcomes of the World Summit on Sustainable Development; follow-up to, and implementation of, the Mauritius Strategy for the Further Implementation of the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States; the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, protection of global climate for present and future generations; implementation of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification in Those Countries Experiencing Serious Drought and/or Desertification, Particularly in Africa; the Convention on Biological Diversity; the report of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme on its eleventh special session; the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development; and harmony with nature."

President Obama will attend the Sept. 20-22 Summit on the Millennium Development Goals to not only endorse "global taxes", but the full implementation of Agenda 21 in the U.S.

According to the Draft outcome document of the High-level Plenary Meeting of the sixty-fifth session of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals, Pg.24 :

"Millennium Development Goal 7

Ensure environmental sustainability

77. We commit ourselves to accelerating progress in order to achieve Millennium Development Goal 7,including through:

(a) Pursuing sustainable development,in accordance with the principles contained in the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, including the Report of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, Rio de Janeiro, principle of common but differentiated responsibilities,and taking into account the respective capabilities of countries,with a view to effectively implementing the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development and addressing new and emerging challenges"


Obama Endorses Global Taxes on Eve of U.N. Summit


By Cliff Kincaid

In a classic case of misdirection, while the media are preoccupied with the fate of the Bush tax cuts, President Obama is preparing to attend a United Nations summit next week to endorse “innovative finance mechanisms”—global taxes—to drain even more wealth out of the U.S. economy.

A draft “outcome document” produced in advance of the September 20-22 U.N. Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) commits the nations of the world to supporting “innovative financing mechanisms” to supplement foreign aid spending.

The term “innovative financing mechanisms” is a U.N. euphemism for global taxes. But the document actually goes further, praising the “Task Force on International Financial Transactions for Development” for its work on the subject of mobilizing additional “resources” for countries to achieve the MDGs. This is a body tasked with proposing and implementing global tax schemes.

“We consider,” the document says, “that innovative financing mechanisms can make a positive contribution in assisting developing countries to mobilize additional resources for financing for development on a voluntary basis. Such financing should supplement and not be a substitute for traditional sources of financing.”

In other words, the revenue from global taxes should be in addition to foreign aid spending.

The document recognized the “considerable progress” made in this area, an acknowledgement that an international tax by some nations on airline tickets is already in effect and producing several billions of dollars of revenue for world organizations to fight AIDS and other diseases.

In an article in The Christian Science Monitor, under the headline, “Small global taxes would make a big difference for world’s ‘bottom billion,’” the foreign minister of France and other officials of foreign nations endorse various forms of “innovative development financing.” One of their proposals is a tax on international currency transactions that could generate $35 billion a year.

The proposal, popular at the United Nations for decades and long-advocated by Fidel Castro, is called the Tobin Tax and named after Yale University economist James Tobin. Steven Solomon, a former staff reporter at Forbes, said in his book, The Confidence Game, that such a proposal “might net some $13 trillion a year…” because it is based on taking a percentage of money from the trillions of dollars exchanged daily in global financial markets.

He is referring to the fact that once such a tax is in place, it could be easily raised to bring in hundreds of billions of dollars or more a year to the U.N. and other global institutions.

Such financial transactions through banks and other financial institutions are commonplace on behalf of Americans who have stock in mutual funds or companies that invest or operate overseas. Hence, such a global tax could affect the stocks, mutual funds, and pensions of ordinary Americans.

Obama has been a major U.N. supporter since he was in the Senate and sponsored a bill, the Global Poverty Act (S 2433), to force U.S. compliance with the MDGs. Joseph Biden, then chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tried to get it passed into law but ultimately failed.


Wild Thing's comment.......

In over 60 years the only politicians who tried to get the USA out of the UN were Goldwater and President Ronald Reagan who did kick UNESCO out.

GW Bush invited UNESCO back in 2002.

And now all of this from Obama...augh!

We are witnessing the biggest heist in the history of mankind.

Obama Hails Production of Stimulus-aided Batteries

Obama hails production of stimulus-aided batteries

Barack Obama celebrated the opening of an advanced battery plant in Michigan on Monday as a critical boost for hybrid and electric cars — and a success for his administration's economic stimulus program.

But even as mass-produced advanced batteries start rolling off assembly lines, costs are high for consumers, and hurdles remain.

"This is about the birth of an entire new industry in America, an industry that's going to be central to the next generation of cars," Obama said Monday in a phone call broadcast at the opening of A123 Systems Inc.'s lithium ion battery plant in Livonia, Mich.
"And it's going to allow us to start exporting those cars, making them comfortable, convenient, and affordable. .... When folks lift up their hoods on the cars of the future, I want them to see engines and batteries that are stamped: 'Made in America,'" Obama said, according to a transcript of the call released by the White House.

Fending off criticism of the $814 billion stimulus program, the administration has cited the battery industry as one of the success stories. With new facilities coming online in the Midwest, battery manufacturers for the advanced vehicles are providing a test case for the government's attempt to revive the economy.

About 300 workers, many formerly laid-off auto workers, listened Monday as Obama spoke. Energy Secretary Steven Chu, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and others were also on hand to promote their production of battery cells and components. Watertown, Mass.-based A123 Systems Inc. received $249 million under the stimulus program and plans to open a second facility next year in Romulus, Mich.

Automotive supplier Johnson Controls Inc. last week started shipping batteries that were made at a Holland, Mich., facility built with the help of $299 million in federal grants. The factory expects to employ 90 workers by late next year and could produce 75,000 to 150,000 batteries a year, depending on the mix of hybrid and electric vehicles it supplies.

Wild Thing's comment.......

This is not your typical Duracell-like AA battery industry, either. These are the kind of batteries that make green cars go .

Each one of these batteries that makes one of these green cars go vroom – costs $33,000. And that doesn’t include the car!!! It’s just the cost of one battery that goes in the “green” car.

And Obama is just soooo proud of himself about this.

"This is about the birth of an entire new industry in America, an industry that’s going to be central to the next generation of cars,” Obama said Monday in a phone call broadcast at the opening of A123 Systems Inc.’s lithium ion battery plant in Livonia, Mich.

“And it’s going to allow us to start exporting those cars, making them comfortable, convenient, and affordable. …. When folks lift up their hoods on the cars of the future, I want them to see engines and batteries that are stamped: ‘Made in America,’” Obama said, according to a transcript of the call released by the White House.

Soon we’ll have $5,000 cars with $15,000 batteries. Kind of like a $30 printer with $50 cartredges, only on a much larger scale.

So he’s going to use tax dollars to produce these batteries. Then when too many batteries are laying around, he’ll use more tax dollars to create demand for all those batteries.

We will never have electric cars, They don’t have them any where else in the world. With gas pipelines in danger of being shut down and King Coal dead, what would we plug them into if we had them? Hello Obama!!

“This is about the birth of an entire new industry”

Dem politicians are geniuses. First we had Al Gore inventing the internet and now we have Obama declaring that he has invented the battery. The megalomania is off the charts. Tens of thousands have contributed to the development of the electric car, but Obama keeps trying to buy his way into receiving credit for other people’s work.

Christine O'Donnell Nails Her First Major Speech Since Her Election

Christine O'Donnell Nails Her First Major Speech Since Her Election

The Atlantic

In the most anticipated speech at today's Values Voter Summit in Washington, Delaware's new GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell ignited the Omni Shoreham ballroom with a tangible buzz. She strode onto the stage to Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," with orange spotlights sweeping the room. (None of the other afternoon speakers got a light show.) The packed crowd gave her an enthusiastic standing ovation, continuing to applaud long after she took the podium.

She wore a black suit and pearls and seemed nervous at first, ticking off the perilous resume of Obama's Washington: health care reform, the stimulus, bailouts, terrorist trials in Manhattan.

"The conservative movement was told to curl up in a fetal position and just stay there for the next eight years, thank you very much," she said, then pausing as a big grin spread across her face. "Well, how things have changed."

The audience broke into applause, and from that point forward, O'Donnell seemed to relax. Her speech featured quotable bits about American patriots throughout history and overstepping liberals, and even featured a few self-deprecating cracks.

"The small elite don't get us," O'Donnell said. "They call us wacky. They call us wingnuts. We call us 'we the people.'" Addressing the GOP infighting her nomination has come to symbolize, she admitted, "We don't always agree. ... We don't always endorse the same candidates or speak off the same talking points. We're loud, we're ratty" -- when the crowd laughed, she corrected the word to "rowdy," fumbling a bit. "We're that too," she said. "We're passionate."
Further proving her penchant for fantasy epic fanhood, she told a story from C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. When one of the children asks whether Aslan, the lion who symbolizes Christ, is safe, another answers, "'Course he's not safe! But he's good."
"That's what's happening in America today with this grassroots groundswelll," O'Donnell said, "with this love affair with liberty. It isn't tame, but boy, it sure is good."

O'Donnell settled into a bit of a folksy rhythm not too dissimilar from Sarah Palin's speaking style, acknowledging the left's criticisms and giving as good as she got:

Will they atttack us? Yes. Will they smear our backgrounds and destroy our records? Undoubtedly. They will. There's nothing safe about it. But is it worth it? ... I say yes, yes, a thousand times yes. This is no moment for the faint of heart. Some have accused us of being just an aging crowd of Reagan staffers and home-schoolers. They're trying to marginalize us and put is in a box. ... They don't get it. We're not trying to take back our country. We ARE our country.

She also took Palin's cue with an oblique reference to death panels and a string of family metaphors to describe the relationship between government and the people.

"They'll buy your teenage daughter an abortion, but they won't let her buy a sugary soda in the school's vending machine," O'Donnell quipped to a chuckling crowd. "And what kind of mom or dad sticks the bill to a kid who'll have to pay it tomorrow?"

Acknowledging criticism about her unpaid (until recently) college debts and various other financial struggles, O'Donnell admitted to her share of economic challenges. "I never had the high-paying job or the company car," she said.

"It took me 10 years to pay off my student loans. I never had to worry about where to dock my yacht to reduce my taxes." (This last John Kerry jab did not go unappreciated by the audience.)

Wild Thing's comment.......

Awesome speech!!! Wow! SHE'S GOOD!! I never heard her give a speech before other then when she won the other night. GOD BLESS HER and give her the victory and for America too.

Christine’s positions:

Pro-Constitution - Pro-National Defense - Pro-Life -
Pro-Family - Pro-Second Amendment - Pro-States Rights -
Pro-Border Security - Pro-Free Market - Pro-Freedom -
Anti-High Taxes - Anti-Big Government - Anti-ObamaCare.

Regarding the write up above in the article from The Atlantic...... the person who wrote this used to be at Slate and New Republic, and it's significant that O'Donnell impressed her.

" It's time to impeach Obama for high crimes against U.S."

Obama's CZAR Sunstein Wants Superpower President, Just Go Around that Pesky Constitution

Just an example of what Obama has wrought upon us and our beloved America! This is outrageous! ~ Wild Thing


'It's time to impeach Obama for high crimes against U.S.'



An urgent plea to impeach a "Christianity-hating" President Obama for alleged "high crimes and misdemeanors" was issued today at the start of WND's "Taking America Back Conference" in South Florida.

The call was announced by Floyd Brown, president of the Western Center for Journalism, who asserted in strong terms the commander in chief is deliberately trying to destroy the principles on which the U.S. was founded.

"The Obama presidency is a disease," said Brown. "Article 2, Section 4 (the impeachment clause of the Constitution) is the cure. And it's Obama's hatred of America that makes it absolutely imperative that we take action now."
"Barack Hussein Obama is not some do-gooder that has had his plans go astray," Brown added. "He is not a person of good will just trying his best to make America go the right direction. He is not. Barack Hussein Obama is a liar that absolutely knows what he's doing to the United States of America. He has a plan. He has an agenda. This man knows exactly where he's taking us."

A political innovator, writer and speaker, Brown is now running an online campaign to impeach the president.

"Barack Obama is a very dangerous man," said Brown. "Over the last two years, we have been watching the slow progression of what I call a bloodless coup."

For the international socialist movement of which Barack Obama is a card-carrying member," he added, "the U.S. must be brought to its knees, and I guarantee you that Barack Hussein Obama is doing everything he can to bring the country to its knees. He wants to bring it to its knees."

Brown warned that a counterculture has risen up, dividing America.

"They don't have the same respect for you as an individual and personal property, and these traditional ideas in the Constitution. That's why they're at war with the Constitution. Everything our forefathers fought and died for to them is just trash to be thrown out on Monday morning."

Brown responded to a common question about what specifically the president has done that rises to the level of impeachment by recalling President Gerald Ford in the 1970s, who indicated an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at any given moment in history.

The U.S. Constitution states a president can be impeached for treason, bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Brown said the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" essentially means "bad behavior."

He went through a list of what he considered bad behavior, saying Obama has "nationalized the banks. He nationalized GM and Chrysler. He's attacked the 2nd Amendment. He's taken over health care. He wants cap and trade legislation, so he literally taxes the air that you breathe. We breathe out CO2. He appointed czars to control your life without congressional oversight. He apologizes for us abroad. I find it personally offensive that he would apologize for this great land."

Brown said the president has committed actual crimes, including offering jobs in exchange for political favors; firing Inspector General Gerald Walpin who was investigating Obama friend Kevin Johnson for allegedly misusing funds; and is now actively trying to bankrupt America, adding more to the national deficit in nine months than in the first 200 years of U.S. history.

He noted the Congressional Budget Office has warned that unless Obama can control his appetite for deficit spending, accumulated debt could spark a U.S. fiscal crisis similar to recent ones in Greece and Ireland.

Brown then turned to matters of faith, and blasted Obama's contention that he's a Christian.

"Obama hates Christianity," Brown declared. "He is a Muslim. Others will say he's just a godless atheist. The bottom line is that this man hates Christianity."

He said at Georgetown University, Obama forced the school to cover the name of Jesus on the podium, and he paraphrased the president's comments suggesting the U.S. was no longer a Christian nation, but could now be considered a Muslim nation.

"Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of non-believers," Obama stated.
"He said it!" exclaimed Brown. "Have you read about it in the New York Times, the Washington Post, or the Wall Street Journal? There is a conspiracy of silence in the mainstream media to cover up this man's hatred of Christianity."
He quoted American leaders of the past, including President Andrew Jackson, who called the Bible "the rock upon which our republic rests," and Patrick Henry, who said, "It is when a people forget God, that tyrants forge their chains."
"Obama is that tyrant and he's working that anvil right now of forging our chains," said Brown.

Brown admitted that there would have to be a change in the leadership of Congress in the upcoming November elections to make impeachment a reality, but said the issue was pressing.

"Do we wait until he's totally ripped our country apart?" Brown asked.

He closed by invoking President Ronald Reagan, who was noted for saying, "If not us, then who? If not now, when?"

The "Taking America Back Conference" is a three-day event taking place at the Doral Resort in Miami, and includes dozens of speakers including U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., former presidential candidates Alan Keyes and Tom Tancredo, and authors Jerome Corsi, Aaron Klein and David Kupelian.

Other speakers include scientist and Bible teacher Chuck Missler; talk-show host Rusty Humphries, Michael Farris of Home School Legal Defense Association; Robert Knight and Jerry Newcombe of Coral Ridge Ministries; William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition and son of notorious atheist Madeline Murray O'Hair; RC Sproul, Jr., author of "Biblical Economics"; "Saturday Night Live" alum Victoria Jackson, author-columnist Erik Rush and author Judith Reisman.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Impeach / Jail, Prison / I would love all of these things to happen to the traitor to our country Obama.

He's more than abused his power. He uses his own appointed Czars to go around the votes of the House and Senate. "We the People" have no representation. Instead, he uses his cronies to dictate his laws. Then there's his Muslim outreach. The Constitution allows religion in government, but not government in Religion. The tax payers are being forced to support his Gawd and his beliefs.

Obama is committing high crimes, abuse of power and dereliction of duty. His entire administration is lawless now and what they can’t get through Congress, they are getting done through regulations, executive orders and edicts from the various departments.

Los Angeles Has Used $111 Million in Stimulus Cash to Create a Mere 55 Jobs

City Controller Releases Audits of how Los Angeles has used Federal Stimulus Money

$111 Million in ARRA Funds Has Only Created 55 Jobs So Far


by Wendy Greuel ........LA City Controller's Office

September 16th, 2010

Continuing her efforts to ensure that taxpayer money is spent efficiently and effectively, City Controller Wendy Greuel released two audits today of how the City of Los Angeles has used American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds. The audits looked at the how the two departments that have received the largest amount of ARRA funding so far – the Department of Transportation (LADOT) and the Department of Public Works (DPW) – have used those funds and how many jobs were created. Los Angeles becomes the largest City in America to conduct an audit of how ARRA funds have been expended.

DPW has received $70.65 million and created or retained 45.46 jobs, though they are expected to create 238 jobs overall (the fraction of a job created or retained correlates to the number of actual hours works). LADOT has been awarded $40.8 million and created or retained 9 jobs, though they are expected to create 26 jobs overall. Overall, the Departments have received $111 million in federal stimulus funds out of the $594 million the City has been awarded so far and created or retained 54.46 jobs.

“I’m disappointed that we’ve only created or retained 55 jobs after receiving $111 million in ARRA funds. With our local unemployment rate over 12% we need to do a better job cutting the red tape and putting Angelenos back to work,” said City Controller Greuel. “While it doesn’t appear that any of the ARRA funds were misspent, the City needs to do a better job expediting the process and creating jobs.We’re going to continue to audit how these funds are spent, to ensure that they are expended quickly and correctly. I’m pleased that since our auditors completed their field work, the Departments have begun to implement the changes we identified to help get this money out the door faster.”

Some of the findings of the audits included:

** DPW's policies need to be strengthened in order to ensure transparent and accurate tracking of ARRA funds and related expenditures.

The Department's process for using work orders for ARRA projects makes it difficult to distinguish between ARRA-related expenditures and expenditures using City funds.

Billing costs for reimbursement are not always submitted in a timely manner and did not always include all costs. In addition, the Bureau of Sanitation's negotiated agreements for storm water projects stipulate quarterly— not monthly—billing.

** DPW's existing processes may not be sufficient to expend funds quickly and promote job creation and stimulate the economy.

Some of the Department's ARRA-funded projects have taken many months to award contracts and start construction, meaning the local economy is not impacted immediately, which was the initial goal of ARRA.

** LADOT's could improve their contracting processes to expedite ARRA funds being spent to create and retain jobs.

Some of the LADOT's ARRA-funded projects have taken many months to award contracts and start construction.For example, four of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) projects were not sent out to bid until at least seven months after they were authorized by the State/FHWA.

The Department's typical contracting processes, which follow a standard framework to comply with established Federal, State and City policies, may not be the best approach to ensure that ARRA projects have an immediate impact on local economy.

OMG....LOL I am so sorry but this is soooo stupid, beyond stupid. And this is how the left thinks, that it is OK to do something like this.

Florida U.S. Senate Candidate Marco Rubio Does Great In Debate Last Night

Last night there was a debate in Florida between the three U.S. Senate candidates. Marco Rubio took it to Charlie Crist by saying flat out that Crist “wakes up every morning” and tries to decide what he can say to take Democrat votes away from Democrat nominee Kendrick Meek – after Crist refused to drop out once it was clear he would lose to Rubio.

All three candidates stood their ground on their previously stated views on illegal immigration. Congressman Meek is completely for granting amnesty to illegals, against the AZ immigration law, and is in favor of the Dream Act.

Governor Crist also supports a path to citizenship and is also against the Arizona immigration law. Crist also supports the Dream Act as well the manner in which the Democrats are trying to cram it down the American People’s throats.

Rubio on the other hand, is completely against any form of Amnesty, is against the Dream Act, supports E-Verify and condemns Senate Leader Harry Reid for attaching it to a military appropriations bill just to help win an election. Rubio stated:

“It’s a cynical way to play politics with the lives of real people, Harry Reid and the Democrats have been in charge of the Senate for almost two years now,and they bring this up, in this manner in a defense bill, at the last second on the eve of an election because he wants to win an election in Nevada.”

But the real quote, and the pivotal moment of the debate, was when Rubio turned to Governor Crist and lambasted him for his flip-flopping and for being the consummate opportunist:

“ Governor, I’ve got to point something out and I hope, and I am going to say this in the most respectful way possible, but I want to be blunt– Everybody sees what you’re doing here- everbody gets it. For twenty years you’ve run as a Republican-running on the same things that you now criticize me for. Four months ago you were running against me as a Republican and saying the things you now criticize me for. You only changed parties and did this Independent thing when you couldn’t win a Republican primary and now you wake up everyday and try to figure out what you can say or do to take votes away from Congressman Meek so more Democrats will vote for you. But Everybody sees it for what it is-everybody gets it. So I think we owe voters more respect than that because what is happening in this country is that they’re taking us in the wrong direction and if we stay on this road we are on right now we are going to lose everything that makes America special and the last thing we need in Washington are more political opportunists that are gonna go up there and basically be for whatever helped them get re-elected. Re-election and winning an election should not be the purpose of your public service- it should be a by-product of good public service.

Miami ABC's political reporter Michael Putney declared Marco Rubio the winner of the debate.

Wild Thing's comment........

Marco is COOL! He won’t ever need a teleprompter.

Wow – Go Marco Rubio. The frankness with which Rubio confronted Crist is EXACTLY what we need in conservative leadership – genuinely respectful but bold and honest. It takes courage, confidence and character.

Today Is National POW/MIA Recognition Day ~ 2010 ~

The President issues a proclamation commemorating the observances and reminding the nation of those Americans who have sacrificed so much for their country.

Observances of National POW/MIA Recognition Day are held across the country on military installations, ships at sea, state capitols, schools and veterans' facilities. It is traditionally observed on the third Friday in September each year. This observance is one of six days throughout the year that Congress has mandated the flying of the National League of Families' POW/MIA flag. The others are Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.

The flag is to be flown at major military installations, national cemeteries, all post offices, VA medical facilities, the World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the official offices of the secretaries of state, defense and veterans affairs, the director of the selective service system and the White House.

Recently Accounted-For

The names listed here are U.S. military servicemembers who were once missing and are now accounted-for.

•Maj. Woodrow W. Vaden, U.S. Air Force, 1131st Special Activities Squadron, was lost on Dec. 10, 1964, aboard a C-123 Provider aircraft that crashed into a mountain near Da Nang Air Base, South Vietnam. His remains were identified on Aug. 11, 2010.

•Sgt. John P. Bonnassiolle, U.S. Army Air Forces, 392nd Bombardment Group, was lost April 29, 1944, near Hannover, Germany. His remains were identified June 14, 2010.

•Cpl. Frank H. Smith, U.S. Army, 5th Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division, was lost on July 25, 1951, in South Korea while under enemy attack. His remains were identified on May 25, 2010.

•Capt. Clyde W. Campbell, U.S. Air Force, 602nd Special Ops Sq., was lost on March 1, 1969 while flying his A-1J Skyraider over targets in Houaphan Province, Laos. His remains were identified on May 18, 2010.

I would like to explain the meaning of the items on this special table.

The table is round -- to show our everlasting concern for our missing men.

The tablecloth is white -- symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and the[ir] loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers.

The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing.

A slice of lemon on the bread plate is to remind us of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land.

A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers.

The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God.

The glass is inverted -- to symbolize their inability to share this evening's [morning's/day's] toast.

The chairs are empty -- they are missing.

Let us now raise our water glasses in a toast to honor America's POW/MIAs and to the success of our efforts to account for them.

Obama Allowing Tax Cuts to Expire Hits Taxpayers At Every Level

Expiring tax cuts hit taxpayers at every level

Here's some pressure for lawmakers: If they don't reach agreement on extending soon-to-expire Bush-era tax cuts, nearly all their constituents back home will get big tax increases.

A typical family of four with a household income of $50,000 a year would have to pay $2,900 more in taxes in 2011, according to a new analysis by Deloitte Tax LLP, a tax consulting firm. The same family making $100,000 a year would see its taxes rise by $4,500.

Wealthier families face even bigger tax hikes. A family of four making $500,000 a year would pay $10,800 more in taxes. The same family making $1 million a year would get a tax increase of $52,300.

The estimates are based on total household income, including wages, capital gains and qualified dividends. The estimated tax bills take into account typical deductions at each income level.

Democrats have been arguing for much of the past decade that tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 under former President George W. Bush provided a windfall for the wealthy. That's true, but they also reduced taxes for the working poor, the middle class, and just about everyone in between.

Those tax cuts expire at the end of the year, setting the stage for a high-stakes debate just before congressional elections in November. If Congress fails to act, families at every income level will see more taxes being withheld from their paychecks come January.

The tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 reduced marginal income tax rates at every level. They also provided a wide range of income tax breaks for education, families with children and married couples.

Taxes on capital gains and dividends were reduced, while the federal estate tax was gradually repealed, though only for this year.

President Barack Obama wants to extend the tax cuts for individuals making less than $200,000 and joint filers making less than $250,000 in adjusted gross income. That's income from wages, capital gains and dividends, before standard deductions and exemptions are subtracted.

Republicans and a growing number of Democrats in Congress want to extend all the tax cuts, at least temporarily.

On Thursday, House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio said he wants an up-or-down vote on extending all the tax cuts before congressional elections in November.

"Raising taxes on anyone, especially small businesses, is the wrong thing to do in a struggling economy," Boehner said. "On the issue of job killing tax hikes the American people are not going to accept anything less than the vote that they deserve."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., wouldn't commit to vote on any tax proposals before the election. She did, however, pledge to address them by the end of the year.

"The only thing I can tell you is that the tax cuts for the middle class will be extended this Congress," Pelosi told reporters Thursday.

Wild Thing's comment.......

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., wouldn't commit to vote on any tax proposals before the election. She did, however, pledge to address them by the end of the year.

Sure AFTER the November elections. How stupid does she think we are.

The tax cuts for the “wealthy” will have the most dramatic effect on the 50k family. They will have to pay 6% of income more in tax, this is the highest percentage in the examples listed.

Hopefully the November elections conservative victory results will swiftly reverse, or totally kill, the Obamatrons massive across-the-board tax increases, plotted for January 2011.

Maxine Waters's Aides Are Expelled From Event of Speaker Pelosi's

Maxine Waters's aides are expelled from event of Speaker Pelosi's

The Hill

Three staffers working for embattled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) were asked by security officers to leave an event in downtown Washington on Thursday after they tried to display large campaign signs just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was about to speak.

The aides were holding lawn signs that defended Waters from the ethics charges she is facing in the House.

“Let’s fight for Maxine Waters,” read a headline on the signs above a large picture of the congresswoman. Smaller headings read: “No improper action. No benefit. No failure to disclose. No one influenced. No case!”

Pelosi was appearing outside the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., where she addressed an X Prize awards ceremony honoring the winners of a contest to build a safe car that gets at least 100 miles per gallon in fuel efficiency. The staffers entered the outdoor area where Pelosi was scheduled to speak and departed without incident when asked to leave minutes later.

Waters told The Hill afterward that the staffers had been displaying the signs at the annual legislative conference for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, which was held at the Washington convention center a few blocks away. “It ain’t about Nancy. It’s about black people,” Waters said.

Waters said she was deploying campaign signs at events throughout the country to defend herself against charges that she improperly intervened to help a failing bank secure a meeting with Treasury officials even though her husband had owned stock in the company and previously served on its board. “These signs will show up wherever large numbers of African Americans gather,” Waters said.

A campaign aide to the congresswoman said the young men at the Pelosi event were staffers paid for the day.

The staffers who attended the Pelosi event declined to speak to The Hill, but before leaving one of the aides identified Waters as his aunt and said they were at the X Prize ceremony to see the cars on display. The Waters campaign aide said no family members were among the staffers sent to the CBC conference.

Told that one of the staffers had identified her as his aunt, Waters shrugged and replied: “I’m everybody’s aunt.”

Disgusting Human Being Mike Castle Blames His Primary Loss On Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh

In an interview with FOX, Castle called out Limbaugh and Hannity by name for what he described
as “misrepresentations” and “erroneous” statements about his voting record.


Wild Thing's comment........

There is NO excuse for this kind of behavior. Mike Castle is a RINO and people have voted to show they do not want this RINO any longer. He made his own decision to vote left and no one forced him at gun point to be a RINO. He can only blame himself.

Now he can add to being a RINO that he is a total POS as a human being and worthless use of good air. Try blaming the man in the mirror Castle! You lost because of your own self—man up and get over it . Guess he thought he was another of the politicians who believe they have a RIGHT to be in office!!!!!!!

Hannity and Limbaugh didn’t vote for Cap and Tax but ole Mike Castle did. His voting record is public and clear... at that, Rush and Hannity didn't even scratch the surface on his record. They didn't have to, there is enough out there easy to get to that shows Castle for what he is.

DC Congresswoman Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton Leaves Voicemail Asking For Lobbyist Cash

Here is the audio of Democrat D.C. Delegate to Congress Eleanor Holmes Norton brazenly calling a lobbyist’s office and asking for money from them, after having cited her seniority on some huge Stimulus-funded projects in the lobbyist’s area of concern.

One has to wonder just how much of Obama’s “Stimulus” money has been used by Democrats to fund boondoggle projects and to elicit these kind of “donations.”

Below is the full transcript of the call:

This is, uh, Eleanor Norton, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. Uh, I noticed that you have given to uh, other colleagues on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. I am a, um, Senior Member, a twenty year veteran and am Chair of the Sub-committee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management. I’m handling the largest economic development project in the United States now, the Homeland Security Compound of three buildings being built on the uh, old St. Elizabeth’s hospital site in the District of Columbia along with uh, fifteen other, uh, sites here for, that are part of the stimulus .
I was, frankly, uh, uh, surprised to see that we don’t have a record, so far as I can tell, of your having given to me despite my uh, long and deep uh, work. In fact, it’s been my major work, uh, on the committee and sub-committee it’s been essentially in your sector.
I am, I’m simply candidly calling to ask for a contribution. As the senior member of the um, committee and a sub-committee chair, we have (chuckles) obligations to raise, uh funds. And, I think it must have been me who hasn’t, frankly, uh, done my homework to ask for a contribution earlier. So I’m trying to make up for it by asking for one now, when we particularly, uh, need, uh contributions, particularly those of us who have the seniority and chairmanships and are in a position to raise the funds.
I’m asking you to give to Citizens for Eleanor Holmes Norton, PO Box 70626, DC, 20024. I’ll send you a follow-up note with appreciation for having heard me out. Thanks again.

Big Government

Congressional Democrats are scrambling to assemble the financial resources they hope can stave off their electoral armageddon. Speaker Pelosi and her leadership team are putting a lot of pressure on Democrat members to pony up campaign contributions to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. In the article linked above, Politico noted:

In August, Pelosi and other top leaders wrote members, saying, “We need to know your commitment is to maintaining a strong Democratic majority now” and pleading with them to call “to let us know what you are able to do and when.”

The pressure is especially strong on members from “safe” districts, who need little campaign money of their own to win reelection. The catch, though, is that many of these members haven’t amassed vast campaign war-chests, for the simple reason that they haven’t needed them. So, they are scrambling to meet their Pelosi-imposed obligations. Holmes Norton is from one such “safe” district–the District of Columbia.

Her message raises many concerns.

1. At the very beginning of the message, Holmes Norton notes that the lobbyist:

ha[s] given to other colleagues of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee

Beyond being a bit heavy-handed, where did she get this information? Such donations are listed in FEC reports, but it is a violation to use that information to solicit campaign donations.

2. More serious, however, is her frequent mention of her seniority and her Chairmanship of a subcommittee. She is attempting to solicit funds based on her past actions taken in her official capacity in Congress. She is implying to the lobbyist that, should he decline to donate, he will be turning down a senior member of Congress who Chairs a subcommittee highly relevant to his “sector”.

3. Worse than that, she details her role overseeing a large economic development project in the District, funded by “stimulus” funds. It would appear that either the lobbyist has an interest in this project, or the Congresswoman thinks he does, as she states she is “frankly surprised” the lobbyist hasn’t given to her. Especially, she notes, because of her

long and deep work …in fact it has been by major work on the committee and subcommittee it’s been essentially in your sector

“In your sector.” This raises additional concerns, and we note potentially relevant laws here:

She who promises, directly or indirectly, any government contract or other government benefit (provided for or made possible by any Act of Congress) as a reward for a political contribution shall be guilty of a misdemeanor (18 U.S.C. § 600).

She who attempts to cause anyone to make a political contribution by denying or threatening to deny any government payment or other government benefit (provided for or made possible, in whole or in part, by any Act of Congress) shall be guilty of a misdemeanor (18 U.S.C. § 601).

Then there are the House Ethics rules, according to House Ethics Manual (2008 Edition):

p. 147: “[N]o solicitation of a campaign or political contribution may be linked to an action taken or to be taken by a Member … in his or her official capacity. … The Standards Committee has long advised Members … that they should always exercise caution to avoid even the appearance that solicitations of campaign contributions are connected in any way with an action taken or to be taken in their official capacity. … [A] Member should not sponsor or participate in any solicitation that offers donors any special access to the Member in the Member’s official capacity.”
p. 150: “[A] Member may not accept any contribution that is linked with an action that the Member has taken or is being asked to take. A corollary of these rules is that Members … are not to take or withhold any official action on the basis of the campaign contributions or support of the involved individuals …. Members … are likewise prohibited from threatening punitive action on the basis of such considerations.”

4. We don’t know from where she made this call, but it is a relevant inquiry. It is, after all, illegal to solicit campaign funds on federal property.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Wow, that was a personal shake-down call for money.

That she would do this so brazenly means that the practice is business as usual in DC. I wonder how many others do this.

Wellesley, Massachusetts Public School Students Taken To Mosque on Field Trip and Pray To Allah

In late May of 2010, 6th graders from Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center - a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Bostn. This is also the largest mosque in the Northeast. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part.

Teachers did not intervene.

Wild Thing's comment........

This is really unbelieveable! A middle school takes a class trip to a local mosque, the kids get lectured on islam, and some of the male students actually join the members as they pray to allah.

THIS is insane, no Christmas songs in school programs, no decorations, no Christmas vacation, but pray to allah!

Nine years after 9-11 and who’s winning?

And, why would any AMERICAN ALLOW their child to attend. Unbelievable. Parents WAKE UP!

Similar things have also happened in affluent Amherst, NH:

Carla Bruni Shares Some Insight On Michelle hater of America Obama

Catty Carla Bruni lifts lid on Michelle Obama's 'hellish' job

Michelle Obama thinks being America’s First Lady is ‘hell’, Carla Bruni reveals today in a wildly indiscreet new book.
Miss Bruni reveals that Mrs Obama replied when asked about her position as the U.S. president’s wife: ‘Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!’

Details of the private conversation, which took place at the White House during an official visit by Nicolas Sarkozy last March, emerged in Carla And The Ambitious, a book written in collaboration with Miss Bruni.

In it, she says one term as French president ‘will be enough’ for her husband and suggests he might take tips from his friend Tony Blair: ‘Why not start making money?’

According to a friend quoted in the book, the Sarkozys have been ‘impressed and inspired’ by Mr Blair’s fortune built up since he left Downing Street.

Miss Bruni also takes a thinly veiled swipe at Princess Diana when talking about a visit to an African hospital full of Aids victims earlier this year.

She says she refused requests by French cameramen for a photograph of her carrying a baby in her arms ‘like Lady Di’, adding: ‘There’s something obscene in promoting yourself when you are giving of yourself.’

In the book, the Italian model 42, accuses French government officials of trying to ‘kill’ her husband with too much work, and claims Mr Sarkozy lets himself be ‘bullied’ into complying.

Comparing herself to other leaders’ wives, Miss Bruni says: ‘I’m so different. I was a model. I sing, and I want to continue to sing. And on top of that you expect me to be subtle?’ And she admits: ‘I am a femme fatale, my dear.’

She also recounts a telephone row with Mr Sarkozy’s ex-wife Cecilia, who warned her that Mr Sarkozy had ‘not yet turned a new page’ after their marriage.

Miss Bruni replied: ‘Not only has he turned a page but he’s changed books altogether. And you are the only person on earth not to have noticed it.’

Wild Thing's comment........

Believe me Carla, it is Hell for us having Michelle Obama as First Lady. Poor Michelle ( NOT) traveling the world on taxpayer funded junkets while wearing outlandish outfits that make you look like a reject from the bar scene in Star Wars.

I think this is hilarious, this will tick of Michelle I would suppose and that makes it a double pleasure. Michelle was giving Carla lots of mean looks when they had to be together in France for a few days. I don't think Michelle or Obama have any real happiness in either one of them. They just look really miserable all the time.

Regarding the title they gave for the write up..."Catty Carla Bruni lifts lid on Michelle Obama's 'hellish' job"......yes Carla is a tad catty. hahahha but if I had to spend time forced on me to be with Michelle Obama I would be worse then catty. hahaha I would probably call in sick. hahha

Working Hard To Destroy Business and Those That Hire, Obama Says NO To Bush Tax Cuts For Higher Incomes

Obama: Republicans playing games with tax cuts



Barack Obama urged Republicans on Wednesday to help renew Bush-era tax cuts quickly for the middle class but not wealthier Americans -- a flashpoint issue going into November's congressional election.

"We simply don't have time any more to play games," Obama said at the White House.

With trillions of dollars in tax cuts due to expire on December 31, Obama again accused opposition Republicans of holding the middle class "hostage" and coddling millionaires with their demand that tax relief be extended for all Americans.

"Once again, leaders across the aisle are saying no. They want to hold these middle-class tax cuts hostage until they get an additional tax cut for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans," Obama said.
"We simply can't afford that," he said, rejecting the Republican argument it is not the right time to raise taxes on anyone, given concerns the economy is not rebounding fast enough from the worst recession since the 1930s.

Obama, speaking after a Cabinet meeting, was flanked by members of his economic team, including Vice President Joe Biden, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and top economic advisers Larry Summers and Austan Goolsbee.

Republicans were swift to respond to Obama.

"Tax hikes aren't going to grow the economy, just as no amount of spin can change the fact that the Washington spending spree hasn't led to a hiring spree, despite the promises of Democrats," Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement.


Republicans demand, with the support of some Democrats, that tax cuts for families earning more than $250,000 a year be renewed alongside those for the less wealthy.

Thirty-one House Democrats, many of them fiscal conservatives, urged their leadership in a letter to consider legislation to extend all tax cuts.

"In recent weeks, we have heard from a diverse spectrum of economists, small business owners, and families who have voiced concerns that raising any taxes right now could negatively impact economic growth," they wrote.

Some opinion polls show voters like the idea of continuing the tax cuts for the middle class but not for the wealthy.

House Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters earlier that he was "always, as you know, prepared to discuss alternatives so we can move forward."

But he quickly reaffirmed his support for Obama's position to renew tax cuts only for families earning less than $250,000 a year. Extending the cuts for wealthier Americans, he warned, risked driving up the budget deficit.

A Hoyer spokeswoman said later, "He's willing to listen to what other people have to say, but he's not willing to change his opposition" to extending tax cuts for wealthier Americans.

Former Federal Reserve chief Alan Greenspan, reversing a long-standing aversion to higher taxes, said rates must rise to reduce the record budget deficit.

"I am in favor for the first time in my memory of raising taxes," Greenspan told an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.

Greenspan warned of "very grave problems ahead" if the budget deficit, swollen to around $1 trillion by massive amounts of stimulus spending, was not tackled soon.

As Fed chairman, Greenspan backed the tax cuts passed during the Bush administration that are now set to expire at the end of this year unless Congress renews them.

Investors and companies are concerned about a possible rise in the tax rate for dividends and capital gains if Democrats and Republicans cannot reach a compromise.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Hello Obama you have got to be brain dead not to understand.

Lower taxes inspire innovation and expansion, resulting in a BROADER TAX BASE!!!!!


AAARRRGGGHHH!!! How freaking hard is it to understand?!?!?!

Cornyn and The National Republican Senatorial Committee Change Their Mind About Backing O'Donnell

Sarah Palin: Insiders Like Rove Don't Think O'Donnell Will Win Because They Don't Want Her to Win


National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn just put out a statement embracing Christine O'Donnell -- a dramatic contrast with his group's curt response last night -- and writing her a big check.


Cornyn embraces O'Donnell


In a clear sign of the grassroots pressure on Republican leaders, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn just put out a statement embracing Christine O’Donnell — a dramatic contrast with his group’s curt response last night — and writing her a big check.

It’s a remarkable reversal, and a vivid illustration that the base is in charge and has the leadership running scared.


Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee – and I personally as the committee’s chairman – strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine O’Donnell in Delaware.
I reached out to Christine this morning, and as I have conveyed to all of our nominees, I offered her my personal congratulations and let her know that she has our support. This support includes a check for $42,000 – the maximum allowable donation that we have provided to all of our nominees – which the NRSC will send to her campaign today.
We remain committed to holding Democrat nominee New Castle County Executive Chris Coons accountable this November, as we inform voters about his record of driving his county to the brink of bankruptcy and supporting his party’s reckless spending policies in Washington.
In the weeks ahead, we will decide where to best allocate additional financial resources among the large number of competitive races at stake this November. While it’s not in Republicans’ interest to advertise our spending strategy to our opponents, it’s worth noting that just yesterday, the NRSC’s first independent expenditure ad aired in support of Dr. Rand Paul’s campaign in Kentucky, where we firmly believe that he will win in November.
It remains to be seen whether national Democrats will provide a similar level of support for many of their nominees, including in key battleground states like Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Arkansas, Illinois, and New Hampshire, among others. The Democrats’ indecision reflects the fact that Republicans are on offense in at least 12 Democrat-held states and we are leading in the polls in seven of those 12 states.
Finally, on the matter of the New Hampshire Senate race, while the results remain outstanding, we continue to monitor the Republican primary race, and we stand ready to fully support whichever candidate is chosen as the nominee.”

Wild Thing's comment......

Unbelievable, that little hissy fit didn’t last long.

I’m guessing the reaction in the blogoshpere along with emails and calls wasn’t exactly what they were expecting. Man these guys are so out of touch.

Over at Facebook the was really getting blasted about what they did and did not do.

What conservatives did was join the page and then tell them off. heh heh

Tea Party Republican Has Big Lead In Florida


Republican candidate Marco Rubio has opened a clear lead in a Florida Senate race, becoming the latest Tea Party favorite to benefit from voter anger at Washington, a Reuters/Ipsos poll found on Wednesday.

Six weeks before November 2 congressional elections, Rubio leads state Governor Charlie Crist, an independent, by 40 percent to 26 percent among likely voters, the poll found. Democrat Kendrick Meek trails at 21 percent.

The conservative Tea Party roiled Republican politics when a little-known candidate backed by the movement beat a veteran lawmaker in Delaware on Tuesday in the race to decide the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in November.

The Tea Party is a loose-knit group of mostly Republicans that has been attracting anti-Washington voters upset at government spending, taxes and deficits. They are strong critics of President Barack Obama.

Tea Party-backed candidates have ousted Republican establishment politicians in Nevada, Colorado, Kentucky and Connecticut. Crist fled the Republican Party earlier this year to run as an independent when it seemed clear he would lose to the conservative Rubio in the state's primary vote.

Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, is softening his rhetoric in an apparent attempt to appeal to moderates before the November vote.

"The language he is using is a little more mainstream Republican," said Ipsos pollster Julia Clark.

The poll numbers show a big swing since mid-August, when an Ipsos Public Affairs poll showed Crist leading Rubio by 33 percent to 29 percent if Meek were the Democratic candidate.

Florida is one of a dozen toss-up Senate contests across the United States that could decide the balance of power in the November and the fate of Obama's legislative agenda.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Marco Rubio is a class act.

Crist is a windsock looking for a direction to point to!!! He is a disloyal self-absorbed hack that would say or do anything to get elected. He let us all know he had NO intention of listening to we the people. Another dem at heart that will tell us what is good for us when it is NOT. He is the worst of the worst of what is wrong with Washington today.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Rauf the Slumlord is a No-show in New Jersey Court

Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Rauf is a no-show in New Jersey court

NY Post

While the Imam behind plans for a mosque near Ground Zero was jetting around the globe and advocating for his Downtown project, a pair of dilapidated apartment buildings he owns in New Jersey fell into such disrepair that cops have to stand watch in the event of a fire.

The fire watch, at taxpayer expense, was revealed during a court hearing today when Union City lawyers asked to have two buildings owned by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf placed into receivership so that rent s could be used to fix dozens of violations, including inoperable alarms and sprinklers.

Rauf skipped today’s hearing as did his wife Daisy Khan. Their lawyer, Tomas Espinosa, said he didn’t know why the Imam didn’t come to court.

“There have been a lot of stress on these people,” Espinosa said when asked after the hearing to explain why Rauf was a no-show “The legal process will show that my client is an honorable man that has taken care of his property.”
Asked why he was confident that Rauf would prevail, Espinosa said of the Imam, “There is integrity and character,” adding, “He is a man of peace.”

But Union City officials insist Rauf is a slumlord.

Christine Vanek, a lawyer for Union City, said cops were put on fire watch rather than evict tenants from 16 apartments in one of the buildings after a Sept. 7 inspection determined there was an imminent hazard. Rauf, she said, did not respond to an order to hire a private fire patrol.

“The city immediately put a police officer there and sent a detail officer, which means we have to pay over-time,” Vanek said of putting an extra cop on duty just to watch Rauf’s building. She did not say how much it is costing Union City, and other officials did not return calls for that information.

Espinosa, however, said he was told a fire alarm contractor has been working at the building and is putting together a plan to fix the alarms and sprinklers.

But Judge Thomas Olivieri bristled when Espinosa said he had no documents to show what work was done or what might be planned and then asked the judge for more time “to come here with a total picture of what has been done.”

“The allegation here is that nothing has been done,” Olivieri said. “The city is spending taxpayer money to put a fire person, man or woman, at the building that is occupied to monitor it so that there’s not a fire that occurs.”

Olivieri then blasted Espinosa for coming to court empty-handed.

"There is no reason whatsoever, none, in the last 48 hours why your client could not have submitted something to you that hyou could have submitted to the court. this is serious. I am somewhat suprrised that I have nothing from the defense -- nothing
"And I reject that you were busy and they were busy," the judge said.

But Olivieri didn’t immediately appoint a receiver to run the building, as the city requested. Instead, he gave Espinosa a Sept. 23 court date to produce plans and evidence of Rauf’s efforts to address all the building violations, or then face loss of control over the apartment buildings.

Union City filed its lawsuit against Rauf on Monday, charging that he has refused to comply with dozens of building violations, some dating back to 1996 for two properties he owns at 2206 Central Ave.

One of the buildings has been vacant since a 2008 fire that erupted a year after fire inspectors slapped a dozen safety violations against the property. The second building as 16 families living there.

I wish he and his loudmouth spouse would go back to their caves in some far off land.

Rauf's wife is the niece of Dr. Farooq Khan, formerly a leader of the Westbury Mosque on Long Island, which is a center for Islamic radicals and links on its website to the paramilitary Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the front on American soil for the Pakistani jihadist Jamaat e-Islami.

Insane!!! Justice Breyer Says Save the Koran, and Burn Constitution

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer writes for the court in a ruling released yesterday that previous Supreme Court decisions uphold worker retaliation protection.

EDITORIAL: Save the Koran, burn the Constitution

Justice Breyer sacrifices the First Amendment to placate Islam

Washington Times

You can't burn a Koran in a crowded theater, and Supreme CourtJustice Stephen Breyer suggests that to placate foreign extremists, Koran burning might be banned everywhere else in America too.

In an interview aired Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America,"Justice Breyer, who is on tour promoting his new book, averred that in the Internet age, speech traditionally protected by the First Amendment may have to be weighed against its global impact. George Stephanopoulos asked the justice about the canceled Sept. 11 Koran burning proposed by Pastor Terry Jones, and whether the fact that people riot in Afghanistan over what happens in the United States poses a challenge to the First Amendment or could "change the nature of what we can allow and protect."

Justice Breyer's largely rhetorical answer invoked the late Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. "Holmes said [free speech] doesn't mean you can shout 'fire' in a crowded theater," Justice Breyer said. "Well, what is it? Why? Because people will be trampled to death. And what is the crowded theater today? What is the being trampled to death?" The implication, which Mr. Stephanopoulos reinforced, was that today the crowded theater is the entire world, and any speech that foments violence by anyone for any reason could fall outside First Amendment protections.

The analogy is extremely poor. Shouting fire in a crowded theater doesn't incite an angry riot but a chaotic every-person-for-themselves scramble for safety. The potential danger is understood by everyone present, all of whom are threatened. The darkness of the theater, the confined and ungainly space and the likelihood of the quick spread of fire make quick action imperative. In only one context does shouting fire in a crowded theater make sense: when there actually is a fire.

Holmes' "clear and present danger" test doesn't apply to Koran burning because there is no imminent danger. The world is not a small, dark, crowded room with few exits. Safely burning a Koran does not physically threaten anyone, not even those who think the book reflects the word of God. There is no need for immediate action. There is no potential for the same type of close-quarters chaos. The violence that may arise in response to it is calculated and directed, and such a riot is as much political theater as the Koran burning itself.

It's troubling that a member of the Supreme Court would imply that anything that happens abroad in response to the exercise of free speech in this country should somehow inform the high court in assessing the boundaries of the First Amendment. This is symptomatic of creeping internationalism in the thinking of some justices. In this case, though, the suggestion is not simply to follow the lead of foreign courts, but to take into consideration the violent actions of foreign radicals when weighing American freedoms. Justice Breyer seems open to such a balancing test, in which acts should be banned if they offend a small minority of anti-American extremists who respond with irrational violence.

By this thinking, the best opposition response to any provocative speech is to protest violently. If a rent-a-mob riot in Afghanistan can cause a member of the Supreme Court to begin to question the value of First Amendment protections, the message to opponents of free speech is to ramp up the fighting. Make danger both clear and present.

Justice Breyer hedged that constitutional protection for Muslim books to pander to the sensitivities of radical Islamists abroad is not a foregone conclusion. "It will be answered over time in a series of cases which force people to think carefully," he said. "The judges sit back and think." Clearly on this question, Justice Breyer needs to follow his own counsel.

Wild Thing's comment.........

Liberalism truly is a mental disorder. He clearly isn’t fit to be a supreme court justice. Thank goodness this was just an interview with George Stepinallofit and not a ruling...yet. But it's unconscionable a SC Justice would even think this, let alone say it.

All these years, every aberrant speech was allowed in the name of the first amendment. Suddenly they’ve found something they won’t allow? Criticism of a murderous cult?

Incredible. Soon we’re not going to be able to do, say or even think anything in opposition to Islam. And it will be our own government that is enforcing this.

I’m just really stunned that the government (at every level) is turning out in full force to privilege Islam and put it above our laws and customs. I knew it was going to happen, but I just didn’t think it was going to happen this fast.

Tuesday's Political Races

Tea party-backed Christine O'Donnell wins for Senate race in Delaware

Christine O'Donnell upended nine-term Rep. Mike Castle in Delaware's Republican Senate primary on Tuesday.
She thanked Sarah Palin during her victory speech. She had Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin also on her side,and several other conservatives.....(more of my notes further down ~ Wild Thing)


Good grief– FOX News reported, “The National Republican Senatorial Campaign ( NRSC ) announced tonight that they will not support conservative Christine O’Donnell in her campaign for US Senator in Delaware.”


The GOP in Delaware launched an outrageous roboball call against conservative challenger Christine O’Donnell. The call suggests that conservative O’Donnell is only out for the money.


The Delaware Republican party has launched a new robocall the same day voters head to the polls – attacking one of their own.

It features a woman identifying herself as former campaign manager for Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s and saying, “O’Donnell is no conservative” rather she “just wanted to make a buck.”

In the call, a woman introduces herself as Kristin Murray, saying she managed O’Donnell’s 2008 Senate bid and alleges: “I found out she was living on campaign donations – using them for rent and personal expenses, while leaving her workers unpaid and piling up thousands in debt. She wasn’t concerned about conservative causes. O’Donnell just wanted to make a buck.”

Murray is backing O’Donnell’s opponent, nine-term Rep. Mike Castle.

Rush Limbaugh was right…......" Republicans Are Blowing Their Best Chance to Beat Liberalism " ................“They would prefer to have somebody like Mike Castle elected, who is not even as good as McCain. What good is that going to do the conservative movement?”

Then Karl Rove and some others said they were for Castle and not for O'Donnell saying she would not win in November....... see video below:

Karl Rove on Sean Hannity, Discussing Christine O'Donnell and 2010 Election

Mike Castle is a complete RINO and he also voted with Dems for Bush impeachment resolution.

Rove at least acknowledges that Castle votes poorly. BUT OMG, Rove cranked up a one man smear campaign on live TV,... against a Republican who just won a primary. Rove was very pissed off. For some reason he thinks Castle would be an asset in the Senate...maybe like Collins and Snowe, Lindsey Dipshit and McCain.

Hey Karl, wake up and smell the Patriots! I realilze Rove is looking at the BIG picture of who can win against the democrat, but here is the thing. Isn't it better to at least try to put a conservative in office then keep these RINO"s in that end up voting with the democrts so much of the time. It is a risk I realize that in trying to win, but a risk worth taking imo. We are talking about Republicans after all .....conservatives vs. more rino's.

We're having a Revolution on November 2nd!


Palidino declared winner in NY GOP Gubernatorial Primary
PALADINO : 65.4% LAZIO : 34.6%
NEW YORK (AP) - Political novice and tea party ally Carl Paladino has beaten the Republican designee in the race for the party's nomination for New York governor. Paladino rode a wave of voter anger on his way to defeating former Congressman Rick Lazio.
Paladino, a millionaire Buffalo developer, will now take on the popular and well-financed Democratic attorney general, Andrew Cuomo, in November.
Paladino lost to Lazio at the state GOP convention but then petitioned his way to the primary by securing 30,000 Republican signatures statewide.
In an interview yesterday in NY Carl Paladino said Andrew Cuomo hadn’t been properly vetted by the press so he would do it..


Charles Rangel, with all the ethics charges against him, easily defeated his main challenger Adam Clayton Powell IV by a wide margin for 52% to 24% with over 70% precincts reporting.


Veteran Rep. Charlie Rangel defeated five primary rivals Tuesday night to lay claim to a history-making 21st term in his Harlem seat, even amid the specter of an upcoming House ethics trial and a snubbing by a national Democratic establishment that held him at arm’s length.

HARLEM, N.Y. (WPIX) — Even though they're required to be impartial, poll workers cheered on scandal-plagued Congressman Charlie Rangel as he arrived to cast his vote.

"The law prohibits electioneering and other improper activity within the polling place," is a requirement of the New York City Board of Elections. However, the people working for the board at Rangel's local polling place, P.S. 175, an elementary school on 134th Street in Harlem, not only applauded and cheered when the congressman entered the polling place, some even shouted, "He's going to stay!" and "He's ours!"


Regarding Rove going off like that. I don’t get it, she beats the “shoe-in” candidate and she’s unelectable? He has donen this before, not as strongly as this time. But I forget the name of the person that was running and he was a conservative and Rove chose the rino then too. Rove has sided with the Rino forces and has been completely tone deaf to the rise of the Tea Party movement.

November on the horizon. My concern is the fraud machine. Vote fraud is theft of government and should be a capital crime. To me, it is akin to treason.

And then there is also this:

Michelle Malkin has a very solid reaction to Karl Rove's disgraceful behavior on Fox News tonight. That is not why Fox should suspend him and investigate. According to this report, Rove was working behind the scenes on behalf of the Castle campaign to negotiate a deal that would have led to some Delaware Tea Party groups not supporting Christine O'Donnell, while giving Mike Castle a pass.

Especially given his comments on Fox News tonight, until this is resolved, it seems impossible to trust Rove as an objective analyst. In terms of the conservative movement, we should not simply ignore him, but proactively work to undermine Rove in whatever ways we can, given his obvious willingness to undermine us.

via Michelle Malkin's blog , before Christine O'Donnell could even make an acceptance speech, the NRSC rushed out to say they will not support her. Video here via The Right Scoop.

One source I spoke with claims that RNC Michael Steele is purportedly going to go to Delaware to support Christine O'Donnell. As I said earlier on Twitter, the NRSC is dead on the web as far as I am concerned.

@NRSC Cornyn is one of the most incompetent NRSC heads ever. Now you won't support us? You are DEAD on the web ....

I would encourage all grassroots and conservative activists and bloggers to, not just ignore them, but proactively work to run-down whatever web based initiatives they choose to employ until this matter is resolved. John Cornyn should be held accountable and removed from his NRSC position.

He has demonstrated his incompetence several times over and now this. It is time for John Cornyn to go. If the NRSC had decided to not fund O'Donnell that is one thing. But to leak word of it tonight as they did, on the very night of her compelling victory over their preferred candidate, is way over the top. Cornyn needs to resign in disgrace, or be replaced if the GOP establishment wants any cooperation from online bloggers and activists going forward.


The Limbaugh Rule: Vote for Most Conservative Candidate in Primary

We still have people who think that professional Washington politicians are the way to fix this, and clearly it isn't. Some of these people are citing the Buckley Rule.

Now, I can honestly say that I know what the Buckley Rule is. I can honestly say I knew William F. Buckley and Buckley was a friend of mine.
The Buckley Rule is, ostensibly, that you vote for the most electable conservative option against a Democrat in November. You vote for the Republican, slash, conservative who can win. To me, this requires clairvoyance, as is being currently applied in the Mike Castle-Christine O'Donnell race in Delaware, to use an example.
The polling data is that Castle will win big and O'Donnell will lose big. If she gets the Republican nomination today, if she wins the election she'll lose big. The polls say she'll lose by 25 points; that Castle will win by 20 points.
But who knows this?
The election's a long time off. In a year like this, it seems to me that Americanism versus socialism can make up 25 points. Why the hell not try to? Is what I don't understand. Why not try to make up the 25 points?
Okay, let's just assume that it's correct. Let's assume that Christine O'Donnell is down in the polls, Democrat polls, by the way, by 25 points. Okay, fine. If she's the best option we have to stop what's going on once she gets to Washington, why not try to make up the 25 points?
We got socialism, communism, liberalism on the ropes. It's too risky? Let me tell you something. It's worth the risk. We're talking about saving the [blank] damn country. What do you mean, too risky?

Three Cheers For John Boehner As He Fires Back at White House Over Tax Hikes

Boehner Fires Back at White House Over Tax Hikes

Boehner statement released to Human Events

House Republican Leader John Boehner on Monday clarified his position on President Obama’s plan to raise tax rates on small businesses, releasing an extensive statement exclusively to Human Events saying he was unwilling to accept tax hikes for any American.

Boehner said he’s “got a news flash for the White House”—he’s not willing to accept tax increases for any American and that includes job-creating small business owners.

“It's disappointing and counterproductive that the President and his advisors have decided to spin my comments yesterday as a sign that I am willing to accept tax hikes on any American. Here's a news flash for the White House: I am not,” Boehner told Human Events. “As a former small businessman committed to freedom and smaller government, I strongly oppose the President's plan to raise taxes on small business in a struggling economy.”

Boehner also blasted the White House for a deliberate misinformation campaign.

“I am also unwilling to let the President of the United States and his staff use their positions to mislead the American people into believing Republicans oppose middle-class relief, and I believe my statements yesterday made that clear as well,” Boehner said.

In an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Boehner was accused by host Bob Schieffer of holding tax cuts hostage if the cuts don’t include small businesses.

“Aren’t you kind of holding the tax cuts for the lower-income people, the people making less than $250,000 hostage, so you can give those tax cuts to the upper brackets?” Schieffer asked.

Boehner told Schieffer that his position was to give relief to all Americans paying taxes.

“I want to do something for all Americans who pay taxes. And you have to understand, Bob, that there are large majorities of Democrats in the House and Senate. They haven’t reached out to us for the last 20 months. It’s not Republicans standing in the way here. There’s a growing chorus of Democrats, in both the House and the Senate, who believe that they should extend the current tax rates for all Americans,” Boehner said.

“When you start to look at who’s going to be taxed, about half of all small business income will be taxed under the President’s proposal. These are the very people that we expect to invest in the economy and to begin creating jobs. Why would we want to punish them?” Boehner responded.

When Schieffer asked if Boehner was willing to support limited tax cuts, Boehner responded, “If the only option I have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, I’ll vote for them. But I’ve been making the point now for months that we need to extend all the current rates for all Americans. If we want to get our economy going again and we want to get jobs in America.”

Boehner told HUMAN EVENTS on Monday that he wants the full extension of the tax cuts to come up for a vote before Congress recesses again (to be determined by Democrat leadership) not later than the first week of October to campaign for the November 2 elections.

“Today the senior Republicans on the three committees responsible for such legislation are sending a letter to their Democratic counterparts asking that work on such legislation begin immediately,” Boehner said. “If Congress leaves town this fall having failed to pass such a plan, the White House and Congress will have failed the American people and broken the President's promise that he will focus on jobs.”
“Last week I, along with Whip [Eric] Cantor, Chairman [Mike] Pence and other House Republicans, set forth a two-point plan for bipartisan action on jobs that would cut non-security discretionary spending to 2008 levels for the next year and freeze all current tax rates to provide certainty for small businesses,” Boehner said.
“The only way forward that will help our economy get back to creating jobs is to stop all the coming tax hikes and cut spending immediately. The American people want all of the tax hikes stopped, as do many of our nation's top economists and what appears to be an emerging bipartisan majority of legislators in the House of Representatives,” Boehner said.

The shootout broadened to Twitter Monday when White House press secretary Robert Gibbs “tweeted” that Republicans were in “disarray” about tax cuts: “@presssec Disarray = Boehner vs Cantor, Boehner vs McConnell & McConnell vs McConnell - why hold middle class tax cuts hostage to these disagreements”

Boehner shot back from his Twitter account: “@GOPLeader Attn @presssec: Republicans are unified: to boost our economy, we need to stop ALL tax hikes and cut spending now”

The Democrat majority controls whether the extension of all tax cuts will come to the House floor for a vote. Insiders say the House has the votes the pass the entire tax cut package.

The question is will Democrat leaders allow the full tax-cut extension to come to the floor for a vote?


Also here is a GREAT write up by John Boehner from yesterday:

How to jump-start the economy

By: Rep. John A. Boehner

(Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) is the House minority leader.)

September 14, 2010

Americans have had enough of bailouts, government takeovers and stimulus spending sprees. All have combined to create massive uncertainty for businesses large and small, and our economy is showing the effects.

The country has lost confidence in Washington — and rightly so.

Our government is lurching from one crisis to the next, with no thought, context or concept of how it affects the bigger picture. The results aren’t there, and the leaders aren’t, either. Many Democrats return to Washington this week after spending the past month trying to run away from their party’s job-killing agenda. All the panicking and infighting only distract from the urgent challenges at hand.

We need a fresh start built on a clear message and a responsible blueprint to help get people working again.

That’s why House Republicans have proposed a two-point plan for immediate, bipartisan action to help jump-start our sputtering economy. This plan calls on both parties to work together and take the following actions this month:

Cut nonsecurity government spending for the next year to fiscal 2008 levels — before all of the bailouts, government takeovers and stimulus spending sprees began. Exceptions should be made for programs affecting seniors, veterans and national security. This legislation would provide the fiscal discipline economists say is needed to promote private-sector job creation.

Having failed to pass — or even propose — a budget, Washington Democrats will try to get away with continuing to spend at the current inflated levels. We cannot allow that to happen. Our proposal would save taxpayers nearly $100 billion in the first year alone.

Enact a two-year freeze on all current tax rates to stop job-killing tax hikes on families and small businesses. This legislation would help ease the uncertainty employers and entrepreneurs are facing so they can get back to creating jobs. Raising taxes will only hurt an already weakened job market. Peter Orszag, the president’s former budget director, agrees — which is why he endorsed a two-year freeze in a column published Sept. 6 by The New York Times.

This will help remove impediments to growth and give our economy a true chance to recover, instead of being left to wallow in the disproven notion that we can spend our way back to prosperity. By taking these common-sense steps together, we can show the American people we’re listening and we’re ready to do what needs to be done to get our economy moving again.

In addition to setting out a plan to boost the economy now, Republicans are finalizing a clear and positive governing agenda focused on addressing the American people’s priorities.

In May, Republicans launched the America Speaking Out project, led by Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), to engage the American people in the creation of this new governing blueprint. Online and at town hall meetings, Americans are sharing solutions for building a more responsive government and a better country. All you have to do is log on to, post an idea or a comment and vote on someone else’s.

This agenda won’t be a Washington-knows-best document handed down by Washington know-it-alls pushing the same-old, same-old. It is certainly not the product of political-season panicking among Washington insiders stuck on a ship of fools. We have been building this agenda from the ground up by listening to the American people.

For his part, President Barack Obama continues to demonstrate that he is not listening to the American people. He has ruled out any compromise on his proposal to raise taxes on families and small businesses. He wants Congress to move forward with a plan that, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, would raise taxes on half of small-business income in America. The president has also proposed more of the same failed stimulus spending that has led to fewer jobs and more debt.

The president wants Congress to spend September debating his plans for more spending and higher taxes. While this is a discussion Republicans welcome, it’s not one Washington should be having now.

Our time to act is running short. The House is scheduled to be in session for roughly 10 more days before adjournment. Instead of staggering from one failed policy and muddled message to the next, let’s listen to the American people and use this time to work together to focus on fixing our economy.

Let’s cut spending and stop the tax hike — now.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Boehner said he’s “got a news flash for the White House”—he’s not willing to accept tax increases for any American and that includes job-creating small business owners.

“Boehner also blasted the White House for a deliberate misinformation campaign.”

Good for Boehner. That is what they need to do every single time this BS happens from the left. Stand up to these freaks on the left.

Imam says NYC mosque site is not 'hallowed ground'

"I don't think you can overstate the importance that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism will have to the rest of the world in the century ahead-especially if, as seems possible, its most fanatical elements get their hands on nuclear and chemical weapons and the means to deliver them against their enemies." --Ronald Reagan


Imam says NYC mosque site is not 'hallowed ground'

It is two blocks from ground zero, but the site of a proposed mosque and Islamic center shouldn't be seen as "hallowed ground" in a neighborhood that also contains a strip club and a betting parlor, the cleric leading the effort said Monday.

Making an ardent case for the compatibility of Islam and American values, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf reiterated that he is searching for a solution to the furor the project has created. But he left unanswered exactly what he had in mind.

If anything, Rauf only deepened the questions around the project's future, telling an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations think tank that he was "exploring all options" — but declining to specify them — while also arguing that a high-profile site is necessary to get across his message of moderate Islam.

While opponents of the project see it as insulting the memories of the thousands killed by Muslim extremists in the 2001 terrorist attacks, Rauf said he doesn't see the spot as sacred memorial space.

"It's absolutely disingenuous, as many have said, that that block is hallowed ground," Rauf said, noting the nearby exotic dance and betting businesses. "So let's clarify that misperception."

Some Sept. 11 victims' families and others view the proposed mosque site — in a building damaged by debris from the attacks — as very much part of the terrain of death and sorrow surrounding the trade center.

"I just think he's being very insensitive to say it's not hallowed ground because of who's occupying the buildings," said Jim Riches, a former New York City deputy fire chief whose son, Jimmy, was killed at the trade center. "The strip club didn't murder my son."

Rauf said a project meant to foster understanding has become unduly mired in conflict and what he described as misconceptions of a fundamental clash between Islamic and American values.

The Kuwait-born Rauf said his own faith had been shaped by the sense of choosing one's identity that American society provided, compared with the Muslim milieu from which he emigrated in 1965.

"I'm a devout Muslim ... and I'm also a proud American citizen," said Rauf, noting that he was naturalized in 1979 and has a niece serving in the U.S. Army. "I vote in elections. I pay taxes. I pledge allegiance to the flag. And I'm a Giants fan."

While not answering that, Rauf suggested the locale's high profile served an important purpose for the proposed $100 million Islamic center, which will feature prayer space as well as a swimming pool, culinary school, art studios and other features.

"We need to create a platform where the voice of moderate Muslims would be amplified," Rauf said.


Wild Thing's comment..........


Hallowed Ground = Entire United States of America!

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf knows better ~ this site is PART of GZ. An airplane undercarriage as well as an engine that'd just then been scooping up human beings, crashed into the roof of this building and fell in. The ashes of those cremated in the flames on the upper floors spread in the dust cloud that filled in all the surrounding blocks — including the one 500 feet away, where you could buy a store cheap because it had been damaged by falling debris.

"I just think he's being very insensitive to say it's not hallowed ground because of who's occupying the buildings," said Jim Riches, a former New York City deputy fire chief whose son, Jimmy, was killed at the trade center. "The strip club didn't murder my son."

Neither strippers nor bookies brought down the WTC towers. Also the Pussycat lounge is where firefighters, engineers and rescue workers got free food and a few minutes of R&R between digging through rubble and body parts caused by savages inspired by your religion you FREAK! The atmosphere there in the few weeks after 9/11 was indescribable. I'd say that “strip” joint is far more hallowed than this mosquestocity will every be.

How dare this MUSLIM tell US what is or isn’t hallowed ground here in America.

This guy is trying to milk this situation for as much jihad as he can getout of it - and he seriously creeps me out. He needs to be defeated and crawl back into his own personal hellhole.

UK Teenager Banned From America For Life Over Obscene Obama Email

UK Teenager Banned From America For Life Over Obscene Obama Email

and other source for this article.

A British teenager who sent an email to the White House calling President Obama an obscenity was banned from America for life, The Sun reported Monday.

The FBI asked local cops to tell college student Luke Angel, 17, his drunken insult was "unacceptable."

Angel said he fired off a single email criticizing the U.S. government after seeing a TV program about the 9/11 attacks.

He said, "I don't remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a p***k. It was silly -- the sort of thing you do when you're a teenager and have had a few."
Angel, of Bedford, in central England, said it was "a bit extreme" for the FBI to act. "The police came and took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever. I don't really care but my parents aren't very happy."

A Bedford Police spokesman confirmed they had spoken to Angel about the email. Officers will take no criminal action.

Joanne Ferreira, of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said there are about 60 reasons a person can be barred from visiting America.
She said, "We are prohibited from discussing specific cases."

Wild Thing's comment..........

Meanwhile people who have gone on international news and called Bush far worse are invited to the USA to speak at colleges.

This is really incredible!!

I’m left wondering why this was done for “life” rather than for 2 years (or even 6). hmmmmm UI guess it is because der Fuhrer Hussein 0bama has no intentions of leaving power.

DO NOT call Obama a pr*ck. But if you want to be part of a drug smuggling murdering ILLEGAL Mexican gang? Why, you’re entirely welcome.

Meet Imam Rauf’s Partner, Faiz Khan, 9/11 Truther

Faiz Khan, a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks, is a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and is on the advisory board of the Muslims for 9/11 Truth. In an essay on the Alliance’s website, he argued that “the prime factor for the success of the criminal mission known as 9/11 did not come from the quarter known as ‘militant Islam’ although the phenomenon known as ‘militant Islamic networks’ may have played a partial role, or even a less than partial role – perhaps the role of patsy and scapegoat.”

Meet Imam Rauf’s Partner, Faiz Khan, 9/11 Truther

By Andy McCarthy

Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that “a trove of videos and writings available on the Internet shows that a longtime partner of [Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal] Rauf believes the 9/11 terror attacks were ‘an inside job’ by U.S. government and corporate interests.

The report elaborates:

Faiz Khan, a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks, is a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and is on the advisory board of the Muslims for 9/11 Truth. In an essay on the Alliance’s website, he argued that “the prime factor for the success of the criminal mission known as 9/11 did not come from the quarter known as ‘militant Islam’ although the phenomenon known as ‘militant Islamic networks’ may have played a partial role, or even a less than partial role – perhaps the role of patsy and scapegoat.”…
Khan also helped form the American Sufi Muslim Association in 1997 with Rauf, a group now known as the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA). ASMA and Rauf’s Cordoba Initiative are leading the mosque effort in lower Manhattan. Khan has led Friday prayers at the Al Farah Mosque, where Rauf is the imam, for years. That practice continued at least through December – after the mosque proposal was unveiled — when Khan was cited and photographed in an article in the German magazine Der Spiegel on the project.
Khan and Rauf also are members of the Sufi Circle, created in 2004 to promote “a Divine Love, unity and tolerance for a happy and meaningful life.” In an announcement for a pending appearance, Khan’s photograph on the Sufi site comes from this 2005 speech he gave explaining his beliefs about the 9/11 attacks. Cropped out is a sign behind Khan that reads “Expose the 9/11 Cover-Up.” In that speech, Khan claimed people he meets in the Middle East and North Africa take government responsibility for 9/11 as a given and ask what Americans don’t understand. In the Third World, he explained “the sleaze of governance is a lot more transparent” and accepted by the public. He also urged people not to get hung up on the concept of nation states:

“There’s no such thing as a Saudi nation, there is a royal sleazy family there. And there is no such thing as the American nation when it comes to 9/11 because there’s a sleazy mob, if you will, in the White House that co-opts Washington, D.C. and actualizes the agendas of Wall Street. That is the way things have worked all throughout history.”

… On June 3, 2006, Khan spoke at a 9/11 truth summit called “Revealing the Truth/Reclaiming our Future” in Chicago. In his remarks, he acknowledged that there is a militant Islamist movement, but “the most logical explanation” for 9/11 is that the hijackers were “working for working for us” in furtherance of a corporate-controlled schemes involving gigantic stock trades, billions of dollars in heroin sales and interest in Caspian Sea resources.

The speech was videotaped and remains available on the Internet. In it, he traced his doubts about the attack to the days and weeks immediately afterward, explaining how he stopped serving as a clergyman at memorial services for 9/11 victims because “I would ruffle a lot of feathers at a memorial service if he got up there and said it wasn’t just angry Muslims gone bad. There’s a lot more to this.” He provided a similar account at another meeting captured on video.

Cuba to Cut 500,000 From State Payroll

Cuba to cut 500,000 from state payroll

Finiancial Times

Communist Cuba will shift hundreds of thousands of state employees to the private sector in 2011 as the government prunes more than 500,000 workers from its payroll.

The official trade union federation said on Monday that eventually more than a million jobs would be cut.

“Job options will be increased and broadened with new forms of non-state employment, among them leasing land, co-operatives and self-employment absorbing hundreds of thousands of workers in the coming years,” the union statement said.

According to a document circulating within the higher ranks of the Communist party in preparation for the “reorganisation of the labour force” announced on Monday, 465,000 non-state jobs would be created in 2011, of which some 250,000 would fall under the category of new licences for self-employment.

Self-employment, begun in the 1990s, covers everything from family-run restaurants to car repair shops, construction and artisans. Non-state jobs included workers hired by the self-employed, ex-state employees such as taxi drivers who would move to a leasing arrangement, and employees of small state businesses that went over to a co-operative form of administration, said sources who have seen the plan.

The plan represents the most important reform undertaken by President Raúl Castro since he took over from his brother Fidel in early 2008, and the biggest shift to private enterprise since all 58,000 small businesses were nationalised in 1968.

Raúl Castro has fostered discussion in the media and grassroots meetings on the problems afflicting the socialist economy, but he has made mostly minor changes up till now. The exception has been agriculture, where Mr Castro has leased state lands to 100,000 farmers and loosened the state straitjacket on sale of farm inputs and produce.

The government reported more than 85 per cent of the Cuban labour force, or about 5m people, worked for the state at the close of 2009. There were 591,000 workers in the private sector, with most of those being farmers and 143,000 self-employed.

The massive layoff of 10 per cent of the state labour force is scheduled to begin in October and stretch through March. New licences for self-employment would be issued beginning in October , the sources said. Geographical limitations on self-employment and prohibitions on obtaining bank credits, doing business with state entities or hiring labour outside the family, would be eliminated.

Better accounting would be demanded of businesses, and the way they were taxed would be changed. As well as taxes on income, the self-employed would pay a sales tax and 25 per cent social security tax for themselves and each employee, the sources said, while co-operatives would pay a tax on profits and social security.

The state expected tax revenue from the self-employed to jump from 250m pesos ($9.4m) this year to about a billion pesos in 2011, the sources said

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama is thinking of adding 500,000 public sector workers.

We are trending against Cuba, who would have thunk the US would be more Communistic than they are?

This is nuts!

Castro has said communism does not work, tough the media again kept that quiet for the most part.
They are now looking at he private sector while we move into socialism and if this man in the white house had his way communism. They and Europe are going right and we’re the only ones going left, frigging wake up you dope media and left wing nuts.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me. OMG Obama’s left of Castro. God help us, the world really is upside down.

Lookout! Government Peering at You With X-rays on Highway

Lookout! Government peering at you with X-rays on highway

You won't believe what's inside that plain white van


A plain white van moving through traffic on a busy thoroughfare looks like a delivery vehicle, making a run to a local business.

It could be any plain white van in any American city.

But there are two men sitting in the back of the van operating X-ray machines. As their panel van moves in and out of traffic, the men use the X-ray machines to scan passing vehicles, peering behind the walls of the adjoining trucks to discover if the targets are carrying weapons, drugs or illegal immigrants.

This scenario isn't from a spy movie, it's happening every day in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service and even local law enforcement agencies are buying and deploying mobile X-ray vans.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told Congress in an April 2010 hearing that 30 of the vans were being deployed to the Mexican border.

Napolitano said the machines would be, "used in a mobile inspection capacity to identify anomalies in passenger vehicles – on the Southwest border ... These machines greatly assist CBP officers in inspections."

The military uses the machines in anti-terrorist operations in the Middle East and for base security in the United States. For the past three years, the Air Force has used the devices to scan vehicles that come to the gate of a stateside base.

A contract from the Department of Defense website shows that the United States Marine Corps had an $86 million contract in 2005 to purchase 52 of the vans. Delivery of the first part of the order was scheduled for 2006.

The new Z Backscatter X-ray vans can be used to detect car bombs, guns and other weapons and reports say that American Science and Engineering of Billerica, Mass., has sold about 500 of the vans.

The company website says that X-rays "interact with matter, they generally do one of three things: 1. They pass through the object. 2. They are absorbed by the object. 3. They are scattered from the object."

X-ray technology works by having objects with a greater density block or absorb the rays. Objects with a lesser density don't block or absorb the stronger x-rays.

The company website further reports that the Z Backscatter systems use electronically generated X-rays to look inside a target object.

This particular technology allows a portable X-ray machine to drive around in what some critics say is "a seemingly normal delivery van," but be able to conduct X-ray imaging tests, as reported by the company website, on "suspect vehicles and objects while the ZBV van drives past."

Although literature about the machines says they aren't invasive, privacy advocates aren't buying that explanation. One reason is that the machines can also X-ray through clothing.

Electronic Privacy Information Center spokesman Marc Rotenberg says that no matter what claims are made about the vans, the machines in the vans are going to be used outside of their normal settings.

"Those questions are always there with mobile scanners. The key distinction is that were backscatter X-rays would most likely be in places like airports, and people would recognize their use," Rotenberg stated.
"But in mobile units, it's actually a concealed type of surveillance because the mobile backscatter device is used from inside a van and that's a very different type of implementation," Rotenberg explained.
Rotenberg says the machines could be effective weapons against potential adversaries if there are legal safeguards.
"The key point is not so much about regulating technology, but about regulating police practices in the use of the new technology," Rotenberg observed.
"Based on what the Supreme Court has said in other similar cases, I think there has to be some probable cause or warrant before people are scanned without suspicion and when images are provided of what people look like without their clothes," Rotenberg said.

Rotenberg also believes there should be limits on where the machines are deployed.

"They've been used in airports; they've been used in prisons. I think that's worth keeping in mind. They're also used in federal court houses. This is a new, and in military zones at security checkpoints, but the use of mobile scanners, this is new," Rotenberg observed.
Rotenberg claims that there should be a question of the machine's accuracy if the machines are mobile.

Rotenberg says the public is largely unaware that this technology exists.

"I don't think the public is aware that this technology exists. And I think it's something that requires some debate as this technology is considered for broader deployment," Rotenberg stated.

He also believes the lack of coverage is due to the technology's rapid developmental pace. However, he says his group EPIC is actively trying to make sure the technology is properly used.

"We have a series of open government requests. We are trying to make known to the public how the devices operate and what the privacy and health risks are. We've also formally petitioned to have the program suspended pending a formal review," Rotenberg explained.

Rotenberg adds that his organization believes the federal government should wait until there are sufficient legal safeguards in place before the vans and other machines are used.

American Science and Engineering Vice President of Marketing Joe Reiss didn't return any calls asking for comment.

Wild Thing's comment........

Maybe I should make a sign that says..... Obama is the worst president in history of USA. and then hold it up at one of these white vans if I see one. heh heh I can think of stronger things to say but I don't want to go to jail.

This peering kind of thing is something that should concern everyone. It is a great idea if used by good guys but right now we have evil in office and I just don't trust anyone connected to Obama and his administration.

Checking In With Our Troops

U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Anthony Patris reflects a scene in his sunglasses as his interpreter speaks with Afghan boys after an improvised explosive device detonated in Pinjadoo in Afghanistan's Helmand province, Sept. 6, 2010. The explosion did not injure any Marines or Afghans. Patris is a vehicle commander assigned to Headquarters Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment. U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Mark Fayloga


Troops from nearly 50 lands dine on combat meals in Afghanistan — each reminding them of where they’d rather be.

You can CLICK here to click on each one to read about them.

A Taste of Home in Foil Packets and Powder

NY Times

EARLY in the war in Afghanistan, among the international troops who mingle at Bagram Air Base, a single French combat ration (cassoulet, perhaps, with deer pâté and nougat) could be traded for at least five American Meals Ready to Eat, better known as M.R.E.’s.

Recently though, the barter values have changed.

A fellow journalist who just got back from an embed with the French told me that today they look forward to visiting the Americans for a meal. American rations — hamburgers, chili, peanut butter, candy — they say, are “fun.”

Each year, among the countries with troops in Afghanistan — the current number is 47 — tens of millions of dollars are spent researching how to fit the most calories, nutrition and either comfort or fun into a small, light package. The menus and accompaniments are intended not just to nourish but also to remind the soldier of home. Some include branded comfort foods — Australians get a dark-brown spreadable yeast-paste treat called Vegemite, for example — while others get national staples like liverwurst (Germany), or lamb curry (Britain’s current culinary obsession).

Some of the contents are practical. Italians get three disposable toothbrushes per day of combat. Americans get pound cake, which military folklore says reduces the need for toilet breaks.

Other items are just, well, quirky. For nine years now, I’ve been travelling mostly with the Americans when I’m in Iraq and Afghanistan, and one item they’re known for is the Assorted Charms that are one of several hard candies randomly distributed with M.R.E.’s.

Never eat the Charms, the troops say; they’re unlucky. It’s just a superstition, of course — I’ve never met a soldier who could tell me why they were unlucky — but the G.I.’s take it seriously. I sometimes think that if I ever got separated from my unit in the field, I’d just follow a trail of discarded unopened Assorted Charms to find them again.

Among the soldiers I have known, the peanut M&Ms are the hands down favorite item (it used to be Skittles), and they’re currency. Want to swap out your shift pulling guard duty? A packet might well buy you the favor.

The soldiers like to mix and match some of the ingredients to create their own drinks and meals. Army Rangers have been taught at least as far back as the Vietnam War how to make Ranger Pudding — roughly, it’s water mixed with cocoa powder, instant coffee, melted chocolate, Tootsie Roll, sugar and coffee creamer.

“Combat espresso,” on the other hand, is brutal. The creamer, instant coffee and sugar are poured directly into one’s mouth and then washed down with water. In 2004, I survived on those things for two weeks with a Marine company during the battle for Falluja.

In combat, eating is often the only good thing about a day. When a soldier or marine sits down to warm up his M.R.E., he’s not being shot at, he’s not losing friends. It’s almost a ritual, and the very act of opening one of these packages suggests safety, however brief it may be.

Enough's Enough: Obama Has Conceded Ineligibility

Enough's enough: Obama has conceded ineligibility


For more than two years now, I have given Barack Obama the benefit of the doubt.

That may be hard to fathom for some because of my admittedly relentless and tireless pursuit of the truth about his origins and his constitutional eligibility for office.

After all, I am the guy who has posted this question on billboards across America: "Where's the birth certificate?"

But I really have given Obama the benefit of the doubt until now. I have asked the questions and directed the investigative reporting that has changed America's political landscape on the eligibility question. WND conducted the first national poll on this subject 15 months ago. Back then, we were shocked that 50 percent of Americans knew there was a controversy about his birth certificate and his eligibility – because WND is the only news organization in the country that pursued the story. Today, the latest polls show 58 percent of Americans don't believe Obama's story and suspect he is not eligible to serve.

That is a big shift in public opinion in a short period of time.

During that time, despite suggestions to the contrary, I never accused Obama of being born elsewhere. I never concluded he is constitutionally ineligible. I avoided speculation on what we might find if Obama ever did willingly and openly release his records as other presidents and presidential candidates have.

However, when Barack Obama insinuated to Brian Williams of NBC that he had done everything he could to quell America's curiosity and doubts about his constitutional eligibility for office – turning his own cover-up into an indictment of the people – I say the time for deference is over.

"I can't spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead," Obama told Williams in an interview on NBC's Nightly News.

With this kind of arrogance after the patience the American people have demonstrated over this matter, I'd say it's time to conclude that he is ineligible for office. He's had plenty of time to provide the evidence to clear himself of this charge, this suspicion, this indictment in the form of overwhelming public opinion.

He has failed to answer the charge. He has failed to enter a plea. He has failed to show up for a hearing. Therefore, I no longer afford him the presumption of innocence.

It's time to recognize what we have serving in the White House today – a pretender, a usurper, an arrogant narcissist who believes it's beneath him to answer the questions of the public and to demonstrate his worthiness for office.

He's like the suspect who refuses to come to court for adjudication. Sooner or later, the judge throws him in jail, recognizing that the presumption of innocence only goes so far.

Many in Washington, who are complicit in Obama's eligibility charade, and the establishment news media, who failed to provide the appropriate journalistic diligence and curiosity to hold Obama accountable, are still wishing, hoping and praying this issue and the public interest in it just fades away.

That isn't going to happen.

And for those who agree with me, it's time to ratchet up the pressure.

Let's just agree that Obama's indifference to calls from the public for transparency and honesty strongly suggests he has something to hide. Since he is a public servant sworn to uphold the Constitution, it is long past time for him to come clean, lay his cards on the table and prove his eligibility. We've given him that opportunity, and he has insulted those of us who now represent an overwhelming majority by political standards. Instead, he dishonestly plays the victim role, pretending he has done everything he can reasonably do to settle the matter.

So, right here and now, I declare the president ineligible by default. Maybe he can prove I'm wrong. Maybe he can't. But the people cannot be expected to prove a negative.

I feel confident we'll soon learn the truth.

* What percentage of the public would have to express doubts about Obama's eligibility before it became a real story to the news media?

* What percentage of the public would have to express doubts about Obama's eligibility before he would condescend to providing the most basic evidence required for evaluation?

* What percentage of the public would have to express doubts about Obama's eligibility before controlling legal authorities at the state and federal level take appropriate actions to hold him accountable and to ensure America never faces another problem like this in the future?

Personally, I think we're very close to reaching the critical mass that will bring this issue to a head.

Wild Thing's comment.......

We know obamanation is an imposter, a criminal. We will continue to press for the truth. Once a dictator is put into office, it’s hard to remove him.

When it comes time for obama to run for re-election I am hoping the pressure about his being eligible will come to the front more then ever before. I hope so anyway.

This Is What 19 MUSLIM Terrorists Did and Obama Wants Us To Have Tolerance!!!!

This is the horrifick audio by a man who called 911 from the world trade center on Sept. 11, 2001. It's a frightening tape, especially the last 3 seconds.

Listen to the last 4 minutes of Kevin Cosgrove's life. He was trapped in the 105th floor in the North Tower. At the end of the video, the tower begins to fall and he screams "OH GOD!!! Oooohhhh!!!" This is what 19 MUSLIM hijackers put our people through. and OBAMA and the left wants tolerance???

This is Kevin Cosgrove. He was the Vice President of Aon Corporation and was 46 years old. He was on the 105th floor of the South Tower, when he saw the attacks of the North Tower. He made a phone call to his wife, telling her that he was okay and that he was on his way down. Right after he got off the phone, the South Tower was attacked. This tape goes from when the 911 phone call was first made to the collapse of the South Tower. Kevin Cosgrove's body was found a week after the attacks, and was buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery in Huntington, NY.


Wild Thing's comment.......

I wanted to share this to all of you. And if you know of anyone that says Obama is right and agrees with the BS of being tolerant toward Islam, Muslims etc. Show them this video maybe it will break through their heart of ice for the deaths caused by the followers of Islam.

Iran Demands Obama “Show Reaction” to Protesters Desecrating the Koran

Iranian FM Warns Washington to Show Reaction to Insults to Holy Quran



Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Sunday lambasted Washington's inaction in the face of the burning and tearing of the holy Quran on the 9/11 anniversary in the US, and asked the US statesmen to take a clear stance on the insult to the Muslims' divine book.

"American statesmen and authorities should give a clear answer to the Muslim nations over this bold and insulting act," Mottaki told reporters in a joint press conference with his Malawian counterpart here in Tehran today.

The minster blamed Zionists for such provocative moves, which he said are aimed at sowing discord among believers of different faiths and religions.

He further warned about the negative consequences of insult to the values of 1.5 billion Muslims, and said, "This seed of hatred sown by the West and its resulting fire will cause trouble for them themselves."

The remark by the Iranian foreign minister came after a group of conservative Christians have sent shock waves across the world after they tore the pages of Quran outside the White House. They tore the pages from an English paperback edition of the Holy Book.

Also some blasphemers in the US on Saturday took the satanic step of burning some copies of God's final and most comprehensive revelation to mankind, the Qur'an, and posted video clips of their devilish deed on the net.

The blasphemer appeared near the location of the twin-tower centre in New York and set ablaze a copy of Quran in front of the camera.

Several photographers, cameramen and others took pictures and clips of the blasphemous act carried out under the protection of FBI on the pretext of freedom of action.

The move has shocked the civilized world and hurt the sentiments of over 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide and billions of other believers.

Wild Thing's comment.........

LOL, let's see, Obama demands, and has threatened we the people in his speeches. And now Iran demands and warns Obama. Maybe the two of them can have a demand and threaten face off or something. Two muslims going at it. Will Obama stand up for Americans, heck no. He already stood up for Islam sheesh and he has done it over and over again and the worst of all he just did it on 9-11.

Spending America Into Economic Collapse: Obama’s Way To Totalitarianism

Spending America Into Economic Collapse: Obama’s Way To Totalitarianism

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Economic cycles are normal for free enterprise economies and such economies are the most prosperous in the world. Recovery from past economic contractions has relied primarily upon creation of new jobs by new small businesses---not as much by existing businesses and certainly not government. While technical advances ‘displace’ some employees into other jobs, they also boost efficiency and return on capital investment which generates increased taxable revenues which in turn helps fund government needs.

Obama’s totalitarian ideology does not embrace investment in private enterprise which enriches citizens and government. Instead, it funds growing government and the labor unions (which help keep socialists in control) at the expense of the individual’s prosperity and liberty.

With respect to monetary policy, the more government takes from investors and workers (in bonds and taxes), the less capital goes to the private sector for startup companies and new jobs. A growing Federal government creates a larger web of bureaucracy and regulatory hurdles which further crush the private sector. Obama’s secular progressive ideology is the antithesis of that which embraces the growth and health of the private sector and thus America’s long-term economic success and power.

As long as he and his economic team are grounded in Alinsky socialist ideology which advocates ‘social justice’ by taking capital from business owners through high taxes and costly regulations and giving it to government which then redistributes it to those of lesser financial means, America will see no economic recovery. It is this failure which Obama finds inconvenient on the public stage but importantly convenient as a means to create a ‘captured’ population of dependents who will support his totalitarian ideology.

Another factor behind lack of economic recovery as compared to prior downturns is rooted in the housing bubble which saw its birth with Democrat socialist engineering schemes combined with the greed and destructive creativity of Wall Street banks and lenders. As the housing bubble grew, Americans put most of their eggs in one basket as capital selectively flowed into anything connected with the housing industry---real estate, homebuilders, materials, lenders, insurers, appraisers, furniture and appliance makers. America’s tunnel vision thus failed to power development of new industry and technology upon which it could fall back should the housing industry run out of steam.

Obama and his czars have caused Fedzilla to run amok when it should be downsized and wasteful spending sprees curtailed, particularly the handouts to unions and other cronies (as payback for campaign support), and the multibillions of dollars in ‘foreign aid’ gimmicks. No nation has ever spent itself out of debt! Combined with lower taxes, downsizing the Federal budget would create more capital for new business startups which leads to job creation, more consumer spending, and eventual economic recovery.

Until the uncontrolled and irresponsible spendthrift mindset in DC changes (which seems unlikely unless We the People take our government back or China forces our government to the mat), the economic health of America will continue to decline until our currency collapses as our national debt metastasizes and drowns our falling GDP.

Remember, government can only spend what it collects from bond auctions, taxes, and printing more money which devalues the currency. If jobs are scarce, tax collections will be lower unless taxes are raised to levels which cripple business and individuals. If Federal debt levels are too high, bond sales will wither. That virtually guarantees devaluation through inflation of the money supply.

Obama and his unscreened appointees have kidnapped America and taken us well down the road to totalitarianism---a political system in which the state, under the control of a single political person, faction, or class, recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life. Only We the People can stop them. We and our children will suffer greatly if we fail. Every patriot’s vote counts (even if just once)!

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf Losing It Now Blames Sarah Palin for 'growing Islamophobia' ~ LMAO

Ground Zero mosque Imam blames Sarah Palin for 'growing Islamophobia'

The Muslim cleric behind plans to build a mosque close to the Ground Zero site has blamed politicians such as Sarah Palin for fuelling a "growing Islamophobia" that led to the burning of Korans on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

The Reverend Terry Jones abandoned his "international burn a Koran day" in Gainesville, Florida on Saturday but there were isolated instances in Tennessee and New York of the Muslim holy book being set alight.

"What has happened is that..certain politicians decided that this project would be very useful for their political ambitions," Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said, adding that this had prompted a "growing Islamophobia" in the US.

The Muslim cleric behind plans to build a mosque close to the Ground Zero site has blamed politicians such as Sarah Palin for fuelling a "growing Islamophobia" that led to the burning of Korans on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

Imam Rauf's proposal for an Islamic Centre, containing a mosque, two blocks from the site of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre, has become embroiled in controversy.

Mrs Palin was the first major national figure to get involved in what had been a localised dispute when she sent a Twitter message in July stating: "Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healing."
Imam Rauf said Mrs Palin's intervention had been "disingenuous" and played a part of the issue being "hijacked by the radicals" over the summer.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Oh GOOD! GW Bush gets a break. He should send Sarah a thank you card. ( giggle )

Rauf has long been exposed.....the idiot is running out of lies and deceitful lies to spew. He has threatened as well, so he is not having a good day. LOL good!

Attacking Sarah Palin and thinking that will score him points!!? Ha ha Ho Ho heh heh.......Only with his fellow democrats. Bet he is a registered democrat!

There are plenty of people saying a lot worse things about islam than Sarah, but this sultan of succotash has singled her out, thereby putting himself in the "attack Palin" gang.

I’d take the Imams comments as a badge of honor.

Muslims Doing Their Thing Burning US Flag and Constitution ~ Religion Of Peace....NOT!

Anjem Choudary and his followers burn the US and British flags outside the US embassy in London on September 11.

Notice, the kind Islamic leader said they were burning more than the U.S. Flag:

“We burn this constitution which represents the non-Islamic law…..”

They want Sharia Law imposed wherever they live. They will use freedom given to them by the Constitution to try and destroy the Constitution.


Michael Scheuer talks about the rise of homegrown terror in America and whether or not we are safer than we were before the attacks of September 11, 2001.


Wild Thing's comment.......

They will war even if all of Christendom rolls over on its back and surrenders to the moon religion.

Even Bush soon enough stopped, totally, referring to it as the "religion of peace."

We have seen this from Muslims happen in New York city as well. Burning our Flag and holding up the Constitutiono and bragging how they will dominate America with Sharia law and Islam. And it will continue and be more frequent especially since there is an enemy of our country in the White House that has stated strongly he will side with Muslims if and when it comes to that.

Islam is a death cult and people need to wake up and see that. This walking on egg shells not wanting to offend Muslims is BS and will only show weakens to them and make their agenda happen faster in our country. How sad it is that even after 9-11 people began to forget, and make excuses for the death cult of Islam.

Obama Commemorates 9/11 With Appeal For Tolerance Of His Terrorist Friends ( Islam )

Obama commemorates 9/11 with appeal for tolerance


Barack Obama appealed to an unsettled nation Saturday to honor the memory of the Sept. 11 attacks by hewing to the values of diversity and tolerance. "We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust," the president declared.

Speaking at the Pentagon, where nine years ago a hijacked plane smashed into the west side of the building and killed 184 people, Obama conjured a solemn remembrance of that horrible day but also spoke strongly in defense of religious freedom.

"As Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam," the president said. "It was not a religion that attacked us that September day — it was al-Qaida, a sorry band of men which perverts religion."

As Obama, joined by Defense Secretary Robert Gates, laid a wreath at the Pentagon memorial where American Airlines Flight 77 crashed, New York City braced for protests for and against the proposed Islamic cultural center.

Against that backdrop Obama spoke forcefully.

"The highest honor we can pay those we lost, indeed our greatest weapon in this ongoing war, is to do what our adversaries fear the most," the president said. "To stay true to who we are, as Americans; to renew our sense of common purpose; to say that we define the character of our country, and we will not let the acts of some small band of murderers who slaughter the innocent and cower in caves distort who we are."

Obama did not mention the New York City mosque, or the Florida pastor, but his message was clear.

"We champion the rights of every American, including the right to worship as one chooses — as service members and civilians from many faiths do just steps from here, at the very spot where the terrorists struck this building," he said. The Pentagon houses a chapel where people of different religions can pray.

Obama also has sought to cast Sept. 11 as a day of service to others, and he participated himself by traveling to the Ronald H. Brown Middle School in northeast Washington to take part in Armed Services YMCA: Operation Kid Comfort. At the school, Obama helped paint a multipurpose room, and chatted with volunteers making quilts for children of deployed troops decorated with pictures of servicemembers.

Muslim in chief, cocaine user, bi-sexual, Marxist pig!

lays a wreath in honor of those who died

But for WHICH ones who died? That's the million dollar question, eh, terrorist lover??!!

He wants us to tolerate the atrocities and evil of Islam?!! Why of course he does they are his brothers.

Diversity and tolerance” are not values. They are tools for stifling the American people.

"Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.” - Thomas Mann

Obama “honors” the dead by calling for tolerance for the people who killed them. I feel like I’m living in the flippin’ Twilight Zone.

“al-Qaida, a sorry band of men which perverts religion.”

“a sorry band”

That’s really tellin them, you POS! Obama inspires loathing like no other politician. Once again he gives another of his "middle finger to America"!

"As Americans, we will not and never will be at war with Islam. It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was Al-Qaeda, a sorry band of men which perverts religion."

"One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. " - Winston Churchill

Barack Hussein Obama does not seek “peace with Islam” he seeks our submission to it!!!!

Other things he has said about Islam and Muslims.........

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." ~Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. The Audacity of Hope

“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” Barack Hussein Obama
“it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit” Barack Hussein Obama
“We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country.” Barack Hussein Obama
“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country” Barack Hussein Obama
“I have lived in a Muslim-majority country... I know, because I am one of them.” Barack Hussein Obama
“As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.” Barack Hussein Obama
“Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” Barack Hussein Obama
“And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.” Barack Hussein Obama
“And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” Barack Hussein Obama
“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.” Barack Hussein Obama
"And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world...And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.” Barack Hussein Obama
“We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam” Barack Hussein Obama

"Good evening. Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberateand deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors.
Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.
The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.
These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.
Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.
Today, our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, and we responded with the best of America, with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.
Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans. Our military is powerful, and it's prepared. Our emergency teams are working in New York City and Washington, D.C., to help with local rescue efforts.
Our first priority is to get help to those who have been injured and to take every precaution to protect our citizens at home and around the world from further attacks.
The functions of our government continue without interruption. Federal agencies in Washington which had to be evacuated today are reopening for essential personnel tonight and will be open for business tomorrow.
Our financial institutions remain strong, and the American economy will be open for business as well.
The search is underway for those who are behind these evil acts.
I've directed the full resources for our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and bring them to justice.
We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.
I appreciate so very much the members of Congress who have joined me in strongly condemning these attacks. And on behalf of the American people, I thank the many world leaders who have called to offer their condolences and assistance.
America and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world and we stand together to win the war against terrorism.
Tonight I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for you are with me."
This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time.
None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world.
Thank you. Good night and God bless America."

8:35 p.m. - Bush attends national security meeting.

10:21 p.m. - Meeting has ended. Secret Service radio squawks with news that Bush has gone home to bed:
"Trailblazer. Second floor of the residence."

Wild Thing's comment.........

Because of 9-11 and all the other attacks before that and since and all from Muslims in the name of their Islam we all have a greater role as an American citizen—to make sure that no one forgets what evil has been done to us.

We are stuck with a president that has had well known terrorists for friends, William Ayers and his wife. But people did not care, not only that Ayers had attacked the Pentagon. So people living through 9-11 and the attack on the Pentagon that day a few years later voted for a person with connections and friendship with yet another Pentagon bomber. Yessss America for some have a short memory for how they felt on 9-11. Or is it that so many just do not truly love America.

Not only must we never forget the 9-11 - I will never forget President Bush's courage during this time nor his administration's quick and determined actions to go after Ben Laden in Afghanistan, the axis of evil nations, and terrorists around the world! The first time the WTC was attacked, Bill Clinton did nothing. Thank GOD we had a President who was not afraid to do what was necessary to protect Americans and thank you to our allies! And thank GOD for our military heroes who have been defending us so bravely and so well! God bless each and every one of them

We had friends around the world, other countries that cared about America and felt our loss. ( Since then Obama has treated England in a shameful way)

U.S. Lifts Ban On Fast-Food Restaurants and Retail Stores at American Bases in Afghanistan

Fast food making comeback on U.S. bases in Afghanistan

Stars and Stripes

KABUL, Afghanistan

The U.S. military has lifted a seven-month ban on fast-food restaurants and retail stores at American bases in Afghanistan.

The shops, ranging from Burger Kings to Oakley sunglasses stores and Military Car Sales outlets, were ordered closed in February by former U.S. commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who cited space issues. At the time, McChrystal’s senior enlisted adviser said the profusion of such shops was contributing to an “amusement park” atmosphere at some of the largest U.S. bases.

But Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill — who took over as the senior noncommissioned officer in Afghanistan this month — decided to reverse the ban after consulting with other top noncommissioned officers, he said in an interview Thursday.

“For troops to be able to go and grab a burger or a piece of chicken or whatever, I don’t really think it’s that bad,” he said.

The ban on shops and fast-food restaurants mainly affected a handful of the largest U.S. bases in Afghanistan such as Bagram Air Field that are primarily home to headquarters and support troops

In part, Hill said, the change in policy reflects an easing of the logistical challenges posed by the arrival of some 30,000 additional U.S. troops and their equipment. When the ban was announced, those troops were still on their way, straining tenuous NATO supply routes and filling bases beyond capacity.
Hill said he would leave it to individual base commanders to decide what to bring back, but cautioned that the food courts and shopping areas should be kept within reason.
“It needs to be right-sized,” he said. “We need to keep in mind that everything we bring into the country has to come through the same supply chain, whether it’s fast food or ammunition.”

The ban on shops and fast-food restaurants mainly affected a handful of the largest U.S. bases in Afghanistan such as Bagram Air Field that are primarily home to headquarters and support troops.

Most combat troops remain at smaller bases, often with only the most basic amenities, contributing to something of a quality-of-life dichotomy in Afghanistan, typified by a faux motivational poster that has made the rounds among U.S. troops. The poster shows a picture of two smiling servicemembers holding trays of fast food next to a group of dust-covered troops on patrol. Beneath, it reads: “Afghanistan: individual experiences may vary.”

Spokesman Judd Anstey said Thursday that AAFES had yet to receive official word of the policy change.

“If we receive an official request, AAFES is ready to support fast food concessions in Afghanistan,” he said.

Gen. David Petraeus, who took over command in Afghanistan in July, said he had left the decision about base amenities to Hill but said he believed the shops contributed to morale without creating resentment.

“The feedback I’ve received from the squad and platoon level, if you will, is that they don’t begrudge the occupants of big bases having Burger Kings because they actually like to go to them when they get the chance to go to the big bases,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Good news! They never should have taken them away in the first place. It isn't as though they are scattered across the country of Afghanistan, they were located at specific bases.

Get This ....The New Black Panthers That Have Said "to “kill cracker babies” Now Say Burning Koran Is Human Rights Issue

Gainesville Church Sparks Global Outrage (Black Panthers Threaten Pastor Over Koran Burning)

action news

Members of the New Black Panther Party showed up in Gainesville Monday to let The Dove World Outreach Center know it is outraged by its plan to burn the Koran.

"I believe in peace but if you aggress me, I am going to fight back," said State Chairman of the New Black Panther Party Mikhail Muhammad.
"We basically want to warn Pastor Terry Jones that if he burns this Koran, he's going to insight a wrath and chastisement on himself that he will not be able to bare and all he's going to do is add more division between Muslims and Christians when we should be sitting down at the table to resolve our differences," said Muhammad.
The New Black Panther Party say it will be back in Gainesville Saturday to show the church and the world they won't stand for religious hatred.

"I believe in peace but if you aggress me, I am going to fight back," said State Chairman of the New Black Panther Party Mikhail Muhammad.

Please note I did not correct the spelling in the report. I left it as the reporter had written it.

Too funny, they contradict themselves on all levels.

I’m glad to see them making their statements... because the Black panthers are thugs..... black liberation thugs... just like the obamanation... best to see the enemy than to have the enemy hiding in some hole.

My only questioin is when and how long will it take, how many more attacks from Islamies before people that are bothered by this pastor’s activities get at least equally upset by beheadings and honor killings from Muslims.

But it is OK to threaten to kill white cracker babies....right?
And ram jets into the twin towers.....right?

And it is ok to stone women half buried in the sand....right?

And it is ok to cut little boys arms off.....right?

And it is ok to behead someone that ticks you off.....right?

Lock and load. FL is a right to carry state. I don’t think the panthers will be any problem.

9/11 Limited Budweiser Commercial

This is a commercial Budweiser did for 9/11. They only aired it once so as not to benefit financially from it. They just wanted to acknowledge that horrible day and pay tribute to America and it's heroes.

I love these horse and the commercials that Budweiser does.

NY Mosque Investor Declines Trump's Buyout Offer


Donald Trump offered Thursday to buy out a major investor in the real estate partnership that controls the site near ground zero where a Muslim group wants to build a 13-story Islamic center and mosque.

The offer, though, fell flat nearly instantly.

"This is just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight," said Wolodymyr Starosolsky, a lawyer for the investor, Hisham Elzanaty.

In a letter released Thursday by Trump's publicist, the real estate investor told Elzanaty that he would buy his stake in the lower Manhattan building for 25 percent more than whatever he paid.

"I am making this offer as a resident of New York and citizen of the United States, not because I think the location is a spectacular one (because it is not), but because it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse," the letter said.
Trump also attached a condition to his offer: He said that as part of the deal, the backers of the project would need to promise that any new mosque they constructed would be at least five blocks farther away from the World Trade Center site.
Elzanaty said he remains committed to the idea of having a mosque built on at least part of the property.

A spokesman for Soho Properties general manager Sharif El-Gamal and his nonprofit group, Park51, did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday. Earlier in the day, the organization sent a statement to The Associated Press affirming that Soho Properties controlled the real estate and that Elzanaty was one of several investors.

El-Gamal and other people associated with the Islamic center have refused to detail the ownership structure of the real estate partnership that holds the site.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Thanks for trying Mr Trump. Trump had to deal with these Muslim LIARS. The owners of the building turned down a $10 million offer to sell it for $4 million to the Imam. Its not about the money. They want to build a build a victory monument to their terrorists.

To all the NYC vendors. Bring you carts filled with pork products to the next demonstration against the mosque. Ribs would be good as the disposing of the bones could line the side walks/doors, window sills etc.

Supposedly this was said... BEFORE the Trump offer...

Developer would sell 9/11 mosque site for right price; imam says switching sites now would be unwise..NY Daily News article.

Cuba's Fidel Castro Gives Up on Communism: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore"

Cuba's Fidel Castro Gives Up on Communism: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore"

"The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore," Castro tells an American journalist when asked whether the Cuban economic and political system was worth exporting.

Cuba’s Fidel Castro used an interview with a U.S. magazine to urge Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to abandon Holocaust denial and refrain from “slandering” Jews and confess that the Cuban model doesn't work.

Castro, whose recent public pronouncements have been dominated by warnings that a U.S. or Israeli attack on Iran could spark a nuclear war, invited a journalist with The Atlantic, Jeffrey Goldberg, to Havana to discuss the writer’s recent article on Israel and Iran.

In the first installment of several Atlantic articles on their exchanges, Castro told Goldberg that the Iranian government must understand the consequences of anti-Semitic theology.

“This went on for maybe 2,000 years,” the 84-year-old former Cuban president said. “I don’t think anyone has been slandered more than the Jews. I would say much more than the Muslims.”
Iran’s government should understand that the Jews “were expelled from their land, persecuted and mistreated all over the world, as the ones who killed God,” Castro said.
“Over 2,000 years they were subjected to terrible persecution and then to the pogroms. One might have assumed that they would have disappeared; I think their culture and religion kept them together as a nation,” he told Goldberg.
The reporter asked him if he would be prepared to say that to the Iranian president and Castro responded: “I am saying this so you can communicate it.”

In Castro’s judgment, Iran’s ability to “inflict damage” is being underestimated.

“Men think they can control themselves but (U.S. President Barack) Obama could overreact and a gradual escalation could become a nuclear war,” the Cuban leader said.

In the second installment from a series of meetings with Castro, Goldberg says Castro was asked whether the Cuban economic and political system was worth exporting.

"The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore," Castro responded. He didn't expand on the comment.

Wild Thing's comment........

Hello Castro, tell that to Obama, Pelousy and Reid. They’re still true believers. Meanwhile, in other news, Sean Penn’s, Oliver Stone, Michael Moore, Danny Glover, Obama's ADMINISGTRATION and many on the left, and others head explodes. Meanwhile Chavez’s response was, “NOW he tells me.”

Well haha , now the RATS are now officially to the left of Fidel Castro. HELP we have GOT to VOTE these people out!

Restoring Honor Rally: Closing Prayer and Song

Dave Roever gives the closing prayer at the Restoring Honor Rally, and then a beautiful song to close out a historic day.

Dave Roever grew up in a loving, committed family in South Texas. The last thing on his mind was going to war. At the height of the Vietnam War, he received his draft notice. He joined the Navy and served as a river boat gunner in the elite Brown Water Black Beret in Vietnam.

Eight months into his tour of duty in Vietnam, Dave was burned beyond recognition when a phosphorous grenade he was poised to throw exploded in his hand. The ordeal left him hospitalized for fourteen months, where he underwent numerous major surgeries. His survival and life are miraculous.

Today, with his humorous style, Dave Roever is enthusiastically received both nationally and internationally as a public speaker. He is a gifted communicator and speaks in a variety of settings including public schools, military installations, business, men' s and youth conventions, etc. Dave is a frequent guest on national television talk shows. He established compassionate, ongoing missions work in Vietnam and is involved in other nations.

In every setting, Dave's message is one of hope. Using his life as an example, he addresses issues relevant to his audience and presents concrete solutions to life' s problems. Often drawing upon his war experiences of loneliness, peer pressure, disfigurement and pain, as well as life' s triumphs, Dave weaves a message of courage, commitment and survival that touches and transforms those who hear him. The foundation of his hope is his faith, supported by the wholesome relationships with his parents, wife, children and grandchildren.

Thirty-four years after his injuries, the Department of the Navy corrected its oversight by awarding Dave his Purple Heart, along with several other service medals.

America has been given a gift from God to have men like Dave and all our Veterans and troops today. For those that read this blog and lurk please thank a Veteran when you see one, when you meet one even if you don't know them. A lot of our Veternas wear baseball caps when out and about and it makes it so easy to see their cap and just walk up to them and say looking straight into their eyes......thank you. Over the years I promise you I have met so many wonderful men and women and had an opportunity to say thank you.

I am so glad Glenn Beck asked Dave Roever for his rally. Beck made some awesome choices in his decisions of guests that day. Thank you Glenn and thank you Dave Roever.

The Forgotten Man

The Forgotten Man by Jon McNaughton

Against the background of a darkening sky, all of the past Presidents of the United States gather before the White House, as if to commemorate some great event. In the left hand corner of the painting sits a man. That man, with his head bowed appears distraught and hopeless as he contemplates his future. Some of the past Presidents try to console him while looking in the direction of the modern Presidents as if to say, "What have you done?" Many of these modern Presidents, seemingly oblivious to anything other than themselves, appear to be congratulating each other on their great accomplishments. In front of the man, paper trash is blowing in the wind. Crumpled dollar bills, legislative documents, and, like a whisper—the U.S. Constitution beneath the foot of Barack Obama.

Wild Thing's comment.......

What a talent he has, such beautiful art work he has created. The video is perfect as well.

Thank you McNaughton !

Military Burns Bibles Sent to Afghanistan ~ MORE PC Out of Control To Appease Muslims!


Military personnel threw away, and ultimately burned, confiscated Bibles that were printed in the two most common Afghan languages amid concern they would be used to try to convert Afghans, a Defense Department spokesman said Tuesday. The unsolicited Bibles sent by a church in the United States were confiscated about a year ago at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan because military rules forbid troops of any religion from proselytizing while deployed there, Lt. Col. Mark Wright said.

The Bibles had been printed in the local Pashto and Dari languages. A Pentagon spokesman under the Obama Administration recently acknowledged and defended seizing and burning the privately owned Bibles of American soldiers serving in Afghanistan. The Bibles had been printed in the local Pashto and Dari languages, and sent by private donors last year (under the Bush Administration) to American Christian soldiers and chaplains, for distribution to American troops on overseas military bases during optionally-attended Christian worship services.

“The decision was made that it was a ‘force protection’ measure to throw them away, because, if they did get out, it could be perceived by Afghans that the U.S. government or the U.S. military was trying to convert Muslims. Troops at posts in war zones are required to burn their trash, Wright said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I'm getting really tired of one-way "tolerance". This was from a little while back but some have not seen this, and I have not posted about it before. Since there has been so much about the Koran it is on topic as to how much we keep catering to Islam.

Under the Afgan Constitution that we, the U.S. under Bush helped them carve out, this is all LEGAL.. Under the Afghan Constitution, the Afgan people have Freedom of Religion. The Afgan people are allowed to accept GIFTS. The Bible in their language qualifies as a “gift”. A gift can be accepted or rejected as easily as a soccer ball or a chocolate bar. Giving out a chocolate bar or a soccer ball isn't forcing anyone to eat chocolate, or play soccer. Nor is allowing people to choose if they want a Bible - “proselytizing”. It's just another choice and no one is forcing anyone to be a Christian - and under Afgan laws - they too have the right to Freedom of Religion and worship.

Ground Zero Mosque – Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf:"Moving Mosque Would Endanger Americans"

Ground Zero Mosque – Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf – being interviewed by CNN’s Soledad O’Brien.

Two things really stood out in the interview. The first was the irony of Imam Rauf at one point lecturing on the importance of the “Separation of Church and State.” Are you kidding? Islam is all about complete control of both church and state! In fact, Islam – wherever it is the dominant religion – seeks to impose Sharia Law on the public.

“If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse.”

Moving the project to another location would strengthen Islamist radicals’ ability to recruit followers and will likely increase violence against Americans, the imam said.

The second thing that stood out was Imam Rauf’s justification now for not moving the mosque to another site. He said if they do, Americans will come under attack overseas because of the anger in the Muslim world. In other words, now he is contending they must build the mosque in order to keep Americans safe!

The man who continues to talk about healing and building bridges has thrown down the gauntlet. He created this entire situation by demanding that his mega-mosque be built in this exact location, despite the legitimate concerns of families of lost heroes whom he claims to care about. And now that the opposition of this mosque has fully engaged and has successfully swayed a vast majority of Americans to their side, he tells an international audience that if his plans don’t go forward, America’s national security will be at risk.

It could be that the Imam’s threats, delivered in calm even tones, might end up doing more for the case against his mosque than any rally in the streets could ever do. And given Mr. Rauf’s knowledge of the irrational and violent nature of the most radical practitioners of his faith, one has to challenge his judgement in even proposing this project in the first place.

Wild Thing's comment........

The Imam was THREATENING us on CNN. He says he cannot move his mosque because it is a “national security” issue...that if “he changes his mind now, the Muslim WORLD will will be worse than the cartoon issue”.

It’s his way or ...death to America. That’s what he is telling us!

They see weakness in America.

They see everyone from the AG, Petraeus, Hillary, and many many celebrities all trying to get Americans diverted away from the International Koran burn-off come 9/11.

Islam can not be bargained with, it won’t tire, it will never stop coming at us.

As Ann Coulter stated: the only thing that wouldn’t embolden the enemy is a complete surrender to Shariah law.

We are seeing conservatives, are fighting to protect their koran and religion - not the Bible or the US no...the koran and islam... These people are very bright and they are playing us so well. We are definitely loosing the argument.

Please notice too that this Imam is using the words General Petraeus used.

He says he cannot move his mosque because it is a “national security” issue...that if “he changes his mind now, the Muslim WORLD will will be worse than the cartoon issue”.

The Mosque does not even exist right now. So he himself is causing the National Security issue.

Bonfire of the Insanities by Ann Coulter ( Regarding Gen David Petraeus' and Koran Burning)

Bonfire of the Insanities (In response to Gen David Petraeus' denunciation of Florida pastor)

Human Events

by Ann Coulter

In response to Gen David Petraeus' denunciation of Florida pastor Terry Jones' right to engage in a symbolic protest of the 9/11 attacks by burning copies of the Quran this Sept. 11, President Obama said: "Let me be clear: As a citizen, and as president, I believe that members of the Dove World Outreach Center have the same right to freedom of speech and religion as anyone else in this country."

Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida lauded Obama's remarks, saying America is "a place where you're supposed to be able to practice your religion without the government telling you you can't."

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called Obama's words a "clarion defense of the freedom of religion" -- and also claimed that he had recently run into a filthy jihadist who actually supported the Quran-burning!

Keith Olbermann read the poem "First they came ..." on air in defense of the Quran-burners, nearly bringing himself to tears at his own profundity.

No wait, my mistake. This is what liberals said about the ground zero mosque only five minutes ago when they were posing as First Amendment absolutists. Suddenly, they've developed amnesia when it comes to the free-speech right to burn a Quran.

Weirdly, conservatives who opposed building the mosque at ground zero are also against the Quran burning. (Except in my case. It turns out I'm for it, but mostly because burning Qurans will contribute to global warming.)

Liberals couldn't care less about the First Amendment. To the contrary, censoring speech and religion is the left's specialty! (Any religion other than Islam.)

They promote speech codes, hate crimes, free speech zones (known as "America" off college campuses), and go around the country yanking every reference to God from the public square via endless lawsuits by the ACLU.

Whenever you see a liberal choking up over our precious constitutional rights, you can be sure we're talking about the rights of Muslims at ground zero, "God Hates Fags" funeral protesters, strippers, The New York Times publishing classified documents, pornographers, child molesters, murderers, traitors, saboteurs, terrorists, flag-burners (but not Quran-burners!) or women living on National Endowment of the Arts grants by stuffing yams into their orifices on stage.

Speaking of lying dwarfs, last week on "The Daily Show" Bloomberg claimed he was having a hamburger with his "girlfriend" when a man came up to him and said of the ground zero mosque: "I just got back from two tours fighting overseas for America. This is what we were all fighting for. You go and keep at it."

We're fighting for the right of Muslims to build mosques at ground zero? I thought we were trying to keep Muslims AWAY from our skyscrapers. (What an embarrassing misunderstanding.) PLEASE PULL THE TROOPS OUT IMMEDIATELY.

But back to the main issue: Was Bloomberg having a $150 Burger Double Truffle at DB Bistro Moderne or a more sensible $30 burger at the 21 Club when he bumped into his imaginary veteran? With the pint-sized mayor shrieking at the sight of a saltshaker, I assume he wasn't having a Hardee's No. 4 Combo Meal.

Adding an element of realism to his little vignette, Bloomberg said: "I got a hamburger and a pickle and a potato chip or something."

A potato chip? Translation: "I don't know what I was eating, because I'm making this whole story up -- I wouldn't be caught dead eating 'a potato chip' or any other picaresque garnish favored by the peasants." At least Bloomberg didn't claim the man who walked up to him took credit for setting the Times Square bomb because he was a tea partier upset about ObamaCare -- as Sherlock Bloomberg had so presciently speculated at the time.

Gen. Petraeus objected to the Quran-burning protest on the grounds that it could be used by radical jihadists to recruit Muslims to attack Americans.

This is what liberals say whenever we do anything displeasing to the enemy -- invade Iraq, hold captured terrorists in Guantanamo, interrogate captured jihadists or publish Muhammad cartoons. Is there a website somewhere listing everything that encourages terrorist recruiting?

If the general's main objective is to hamper jihadist recruiting, may I respectfully suggest unconditional surrender? Because on his theory, you know what would really kill the terrorists' recruiting ability? If we adopted Sharia law!

But wait -- weren't we assured by Fire Island's head of national security, Andrew Sullivan, that if America elected a "brown-skinned man whose father was an African, who grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii, who attended a majority-Muslim school as a boy," the terrorists would look like a bunch of lunkheads and be unable to recruit?

It didn't work out that way. There have been more terrorist attacks on U.S. soil by these allegedly calmed Muslims in Obama's first 18 months in office than in the six years under Bush after he invaded Iraq.

Also, as I recall, there was no Guantanamo, no Afghanistan war and no Iraq war on Sept. 10, 2001. And yet, somehow, Osama bin Ladin had no trouble recruiting back then. Can we retire the "it will help them recruit" argument yet?

The reason not to burn Qurans is that it's unkind -- not to jihadists, but to Muslims who mean us no harm. The same goes for building a mosque at ground zero -- in both cases, it's not a question of anyone's "rights," it's just a nasty thing to do.


Wild Thing's comment.........

There have been more terrorist attacks ON U.S.SOIL by these allegedly calmed Muslims in Obama's first 18 months in office than in the six years under Bush AFTER he invaded Iraq.

Needs to be stated again...and again...and again. FT.Hood, the Little Rock Recruiting office, etc.

First I need to say something, most of you know I am a huge supporter of our troops as well as our Veterans. Even before I went with Bob Hope to Vietnam our military was the number one love of my life in gratitude and appreciation for what they did to keep this the land of the free. I have a feeling of awe when it comes to our service members at the sacrifices they make and how so many even after they receive horrible injuries want to go back and be with their men and keep fighting. To me those that have served in the past and those serving now are our countries true elite, the best of what our country represents. The debt we all owe them can never be repaid. NEVER. My hundreds of visits to wards where those suffering from PTSD leave me each time like I have visited with the angels and glimpsed into their hearts they only allow so few to enter. Those times are precious to me and I remain silent to the deep things they shared with me like one soul talking to another.

So when I wrote this below I wish for each of you to remember it was written by me,. no one special , but one that loves our troops, and our Veterans with a fierce loyalty to both. And with a constant concern for their safety and would never do anything to put them at risk.

The Saudi government destroys bibles on a daily basis and the world is . . . . silent.

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), its judicial...all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes.

Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.

The sooner America learns this , the better. Some know and many do not, but it is a threat to everything America knows.

Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. He is doing nothing to protect America as per his oath. Also, as a Muslim, he knows this, he know far better, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.

My question under this senerio is why is Gen. David Petraeus, or any other General or Pentagon bringing up this will kill more of our troops when their very own Commander in Chief Obama is doing just that with his R.O.E.'s. Where is the outrage there???!!!

And why is our mission “protecting Afghan civilians” instead of killing the bad guys.

General, you worry about wiping out the Taliban over there (that IS your job isn’t it?) and let Americans worry about how they want to enjoy their Constitutional guarantees regarding freedom of expression, ok?

Look at it this way General, the more of those scumbags you kill over there, the less there will be to threaten the lives of our troops.

General Petraeus, you’re a good and decent American and a HERO. You ought to know more than anyone else that Islam is nothing but a death cult. I think he’s misguided.

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war. - Ann Coulter

If we are NOT at war and are only offering protection, let's send in the cops to protect and serve and get the Military out of there. The military is supposed to fight wars, not police the population. There has been no war waged there yet, just asinine ROE and phony PR missions.

Were the lives of American troops put in more danger during WW2 when Americans burned Swastikas and Japanese flags? Did it make it more difficult for the allies to carry out the mission?

“”It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort,””

Change your rules of engagement to kill anything that moves!!! I wish they would focus on killing the enemy - the fact that the General is constrained in ways that he can kill the enemy is something he needs to discuss with the Commander-in-Chief

Play like it’s a war zone!

I would not want to do anything that put our troops in harms way. But that church I have never heard of wants to hurn the Koran and call Islam what it is then if I was there I would ask what the heck is this with the rules for our troops, sending them off in war with the touchie feelie bs from Obama. Its the weakness we can exploit, and we should regardless of the fears of others. Its a bold and daring move that will show the hand and faces of our enemy as they lose control with their emotional anger.

Look at the death threats that some bloggers have gotten just from posting things about Islam, things that are the truth, including myself. Emails of threats from Muslims that I sent on to the FBI so they can find the person's location and at least know where the ' radicals' are around the world. Many of these emails came from Australia.

Or we could use this to make a deal......No Koran burning if the terrorist supporters won’t build the mosque near Ground Zero.

As for me I will not cower and be cowed by Muslims’ demands.

Remember Tripoli !

What Church, in the late 1800/early 1900s, burned the Qur'an in order to start this "Muslim rage"? Quit being a slave to Political Correctness. Christendom is a perpetual target by Islamics. Muslims only fear intimidation and brute force which you should be applying. Instead, we try to reason and coddled Islamics only to be STABBED in the back. History is being totally ignored which will be are doom unless we act appropriately.

Dear General Petraeus: How many Afghans have TVs, radios, and newspapers? So the news reports of the Koran burnings gets to what, 5% of the population? Out of the 5%, how many are Taliban? Out of those Taliban, how many have TVs, radios, and newspapers? The Taliban want to kill our troops regardless of whether anyone burns a Koran.

The terms like “FUBAR” and “BOHICA” didn’t come to being because Generals have the safety and well-being of the troops always at the forefront.

There will be no surrender ceremony of the Taliban, Hamas, al quada etc.

If burning the Koran in Florida pisses them off and makes them irrational, perhaps that will make killing their asses even easier.

There ya go Petraeus.

The only good Islamist is a dead one. And remember, they will kill us all in a heartbeat given the chance. It is the ultimate prize for them. I have met and known hundreds of Marines and Army soldiers and their first concern is accomplishing the mission. Yes, safety matters, but not at the expense of finishing the job.

I am NOT questioning Petraeus past no way. I am thrilled he is in charge, and I am totally impressed with him as a person and a warrior. He has lead and done things that have really impressed me a lot. But his new turn of events of trying to please his new PC bosses? hmmmmmm

If winning is not the first concern of a general, then that general needs to be replaced pronto. Otherwise, that general is endangering his troops by not giving orders to kill the enemy.

Can’t you just see Gen Patton excoriating his tank commanders for anti-Nazi rhetoric written on shells and tanks? Or Eisenhower telling a church in Florida that burning Mein Kampf would infuriate Germans, and not to do it?”

Heh heh heh .... trying to picture it ... nope ... can’t.

Not at all. We are not at war and we are not doing what we did in Iraq. We are in limbo. We are not clearing, holding, building forces or handing authority over to the government that doesn’t exist there. Nobody wants it. We are policing. Policing should be done by cops. If we win a war there, we can rebuild the country from scratch. We can not nation build with the existing structure and we all know it. What we are doing is insanity.

Carrollton City Council Bans Drugs, Turns Focus to Gun Shops

Carrollton City Council bans drugs, turns focus to gun shops

Dallas Morning News

Guns, not drugs, took center stage at Tuesday evening's City Council meeting.

Without a word of discussion, council members passed a law banning the sale of popular inebriants like K2 and salvia. Such bans have been a hot issue in other cities, but Carrollton's meeting-goers saved their breath to talk gun shops.

Specifically, they talked about Big Slim's Firearms, which upset some residents when it opened last week across the street from houses and in the same mini mall as a liquor store.

Council member Terry Simons proposed a new ordinance – to be discussed at a future meeting – that would restrict future gun shops from opening near liquor stores and certain other retail establishments.

During a public forum later in the meeting, one resident lambasted the proposal.

"Move to China or North Korea," the man said. "I guarantee you won't find any gun stores there."

Steve Babick, president of the Highlands Neighborhood Association, who helped start the controversy by e-mailing the mayor with concerns about Big Slim's, said opposition to the gun shop was "fear of the unknown." He invited Big Slim's owners to speak at a future neighborhood meeting.

In the lobby outside the meeting, Big Slim's co-owner Jack Kendall said he'd be happy to take up that offer. But he called Simon's proposal to restrict future gun shops unfair – even though it would not affect existing gun shops such as his own.

"I don't think gun owners and gun enthusiasts would like to see gun shops being treated like strip clubs," he said.

Kendall said he didn't expect Simon's proposed ordinance to go anywhere. Even if it is approved, the Texas State Rifle Association has promised to fight it.

Reached by phone, the association's executive director, Alice Tripp, ridiculed the notion that a gun shop operating near a liquor store posed a public danger.

"How on God's green earth could you tie the two together?" she said. " 'I got drunk and bought a gun?' There's no logic there."

During a break in the meeting, Simons defended his proposal. Big Slim's posed a potential threat to public safety, he said, pointing to numerous burglaries and a deadly shooting that took place near the mini mall in recent years.

But the council member contended he wasn't stepping on Second Amendment rights.

"I'm not for gun control," he said, adding that he spent the holiday weekend hunting doves.

If they ban guns in any way, it will make a lot of Democrats furious as well. This might be one of the big issues that both conservatives and democrats agree least a lot of democrats would. Almost all the democrats I have known during my career all had guns.

The Reckoning: This Single Report Could Sink Obama's Presidency

The reckoning: This single report could sink Obama's presidency


There have been billboards, posters, questions at White House press briefings, "jokes" about it by the mainstream media and a ton of lawsuits and other challenges – including several pending.

But, come on, is there really the possibility that Barack Obama doesn't meet the requirements of the U.S. Constitution to occupy the hallowed Oval Office?

That question and many others surrounding the constitutional issue of presidential eligibility are addressed in a new, free special report by WND.

"The citizens of the United States have a right to know if their president is constitutionally eligible to hold the office," says the report, now available from WND.
"Obama's hospital of birth, birth documents, passport and Social Security number are all in question, and his legal defense never addresses the merits of the eligibility challenges. Instead, Obama relies on procedural objections and compliant judges to get the cases thrown out of court," says the report.
"President Obama could quickly and easily resolve the issue by releasing his personal historical documents to authenticate his claims," it concludes.

So why hasn't he?

The dispute over Obama's eligibility arose even before the 2008 election. Several legal challenges questioned just exactly who is supposed to make sure that a political party's candidate – no matter how charismatic – actually qualifies.

WND has reported on the multitude of cases and continues to report on pending disputes.

The report suggests the issue will have to be resolved in a public fashion sooner or later.

"Despite a virtual blackout by the mainstream media, Obama's eligibility troubles have spread across America, and public opinion has gradually turned against the president. … More than a dozen U.S. House Republicans co-sponsored a bill … [to] require presidential candidates to prove their eligibility by providing a copy of their birth certificates," the report says.

Similar moves are developing at the state level. And a recent poll showed only 4 in 10 Americans believed Obama's own explanation of his birth and growing up years.

On the legal front is the dramatic case of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who challenged Obama's eligibility as an Army officer and could face prison for his decision. The goal of his case, like others, is to reach the level of discovery, so that Obama's documentation becomes public.

Another pending case by attorney Mario Apuzzo alleges Congress failed its constitutional duties to make sure the president is qualified. Other cases in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had asked that the California Electoral College votes for Obama be thrown out.

The report includes:

* An explanation of how the issue developed around Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, which states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

* A review of the possible scenarios regarding Obama's birth, including his father's status as a British subject at the time of his birth and British law calling for Obama to be governed by that nation's provisions at the time.

* A discussion of "natural born citizen."

* An explanation of Obama's "Certification of Live Birth" posted on the Internet and how it falls short of providing proof.

* What those Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Advertiser "announcements" about Obama's birth in 1961 really mean.

* Why has no doctor or hospital come forward to speak of Obama's birth?

* Should state officials who claim to have "seen" Obama's "original birth certificate" be believed?

* What about those African newspapers that during his campaign called Obama "Kenyan-born?"

* Were they "slips of the tongue" when Michelle Obama called Kenya the land of her husband?

Obama's "official account of his identity and background is riddled with inaccuracy and unanswered questions," the report says. "Even Obama's Social Security number may very well be fraudulent. He has literally spent a fortune in legal efforts to avoid producing the documents that would verify his eligibility."

Lending credibility to the concerns being raised is the intense war fought by attorneys trying to keep information about Obama secret. Besides his original birth certificate, still concealed are his kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, client list from his time in private practice, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, his baptism records and his adoption records.

The report notes Obama "has gone to great efforts to sell the public on his own version of his life, but his story has been inconsistent. For example, according to Illinois state filings, when Obama registered as an attorney in 1991, he stated he did not have any former names. In fact, he had been known for several years as Barry Soetoro."

Just the facts that are not in dispute would create issues, the report notes:

"Assuming Obama's parents were Barack Obama Sr., a British subject of Kenyan origin, and Stanley Ann Dunham, an eighteen-year-old American woman, neither of his parents were qualified to transmit U.S. citizenship to him. Barack Obama Sr.'s foreign allegiance disqualified Dunham's mother from conferring U.S. citizenship under the law prevailing at the time. The law required any U.S. citizen having a child with a non-citizen to have been physically present in the United States for at least five years after the age of sixteen to automatically transmit American citizenship. Because neither parent could confer American citizenship to their son, Obama can only be a U.S. citizen if he were actually born in the United States."

It documents how at the time of the Constitution's writing, "natural born citizen" was understood to mean a person whose parents were both American citizens.

So has Obama proved he was born in the U.S?

Wild Thing's comment.......

It makes sense he is not revealing the truth, he is doing all he can to ruin us..I can’t believe this was not done before the election.

Obama is sinking fast these days. No one left to lie to. The country is sinking as fast as he is. God save us from this Muslim president.

Something is wrong for B. Hussein Obama to hide his birth certificate. He holds the most important job in the country and he refuses to provide the simple proof that he meets the qualifications. I would bet Soros knows every detail about Obama, every dotted i and t crossed about him.

He dodged the qualifications in 2008. He will not do so again. Democrats are faced with a dilemma. Dump him or lose.

World War II Marine Corps Vet of 83, Fights Off Home Invader of 19

Marine vet, 83, fights off home invader, 19

The Marine Times


Yarmouth police say an 83-year-old World War II Marine Corps veteran fought off a 19-year-old man who broke into his home and attacked him with a glass candlestick.

Police say the suspect broke into the home at about 8:30 p.m. on Monday. The homeowner fought back and yelled to his wife, who called police, prompting the suspect to flee.

He was picked up a short time later, with blood on his shirt and items allegedly stolen from the home. Alan Menchin was held on $10,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges including assault and battery at his arraignment Tuesday.

The homeowner needed treatment for cuts and bruises. He asked not to be identified out of concern for his safety.

Lt. Steven Xiarhos said he was proud of the veteran for fighting off "a punk."

America Hating Obama Vows He Will Continue Spending


Obama Added More to Debt in First 19 Months Than All Presidents From Washington to Reagan COMBINED

The Obama-Pelosi economic plan resulted in a cumulative 7.5 million jobs deficit. By every objective measure the democrat’s Trillion dollar stimulus bomb was a complete disaster.

Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi tripled the national deficit last year by nearly a trillion dollars – something unheard of in our nation’s history.

After an unheard of record deficit last year of $1.4 Trillion the economy is on track to experience a $1.3 Trillion deficit this year.

Instead of focusing on the economy the past two years the radicals in Washington beat up on business and rammed through an unpopular nationalized health care entitlement program.

Then there’s this…

The Obama-Pelosi regime added more to the national debt in his first 19 months in office than all presidents from Washington to Ronald Reagan… COMBINED.

CNS News

In the first 19 months of the Obama administration, the federal debt held by the public increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the cumulative total of the national debt held by the public that was amassed by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan.

The U.S. Treasury Department divides the federal debt into two categories. One is “debt held by the public,” which includes U.S. government securities owned by individuals, corporations, state or local governments, foreign governments and other entities outside the federal government itself. The other is “intragovernmental” debt, which includes I.O.U.s the federal government gives to itself when, for example, the Treasury borrows money out of the Social Security “trust fund” to pay for expenses other than Social Security.

At the end of fiscal year 1989, which ended eight months after President Reagan left office, the total federal debt held by the public was $2.1907 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. That means all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan had accumulated only that much publicly held debt on behalf of American taxpayers. That is $335.3 billion less than the $2.5260 trillion that was added to the federal debt held by the public just between Jan. 20, 2009, when President Obama was inaugurated, and Aug. 20, 2010, the 19-month anniversary of Obama’s inauguration.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Will he ever stop???? I don't think he will, he is on a roll and could care less how it hurts we the people, any size business, or our entire country.

They say Obama is a major screw up!!! YES he is. And it is on puprpose, it is looks like a screw up but it is all his agenda of destroying our country.

He invited the Muslim Brotherhood Foundation & 40 mosque leaders to the WH on 8/31 to discuss “direct access” to stimulus grants & promised to help with the red tape. Duh!!!! Millions of people know that the Brotherhood Foundation finances HAMAS!!! Plus, we can’t afford to give more money to anyone for any reason.

Obama refuses to tell the public anything about himself. Anyone can look up information on any other President & get facts. Not Obama. He’s spent millions hiding every document having to do with his life.
What the hell is he hiding it from us for??? Maybe because he has no right being the President??

He’s trying to remove Christianity from every area in the United States, while promoting Islam. He cancelled National Prayer Day at the WH but has had 2 Muslim religious functions at the WH. He says he’s a Christian but denounces Christianity constantly. Occidental College in Calif. is mostly Muslim students. The foundation this college has for student grants, etc. is for Muslim students.

He Lies!!!! He’s deceitful. He’s the puppet of George Soros & this man hates America. And both of them have a dream alright, and that dream is to destroy the USA.

America Was Built by Rugged Individualists Who'd Reject Obama by ElRushbo


( notes below from several comments he made yesterday )

America Was Built by Rugged Individualists Who'd Reject Obama

Class envy and tyranny were not founding principles.

by Rush Limbaugh

Let me tell you who built America. I'd love to tell you who built America. America was built by people who fended for themselves, who expected nothing from the government except protection. They expected nothing from the government except protection from foreign enemies and a just rule of law. Other than that, stay the hell out of our lives. That's who built America. The very people who founded this country constructed that kind of a government. The people who built this country revolted against high taxes, a tea tax specifically. America was built by people who believed in individuality, rugged individualism. I love saying that because it so ticks off the left, rugged individualism, hard work, minimal government, freedom and liberty. You see, America was built by people who reject everything Imam Obama stands for, reject everything Imam Obama is doing. And that's why Obama and the suckers in his party who followed him are being rejected by the people. Obama and his party are being rejected because they are the antithesis of how this country was built and how this country grew.

The rich, the poor, the middle class, when America was founded, we didn't think this way. We didn't expect the government to punish other people. We didn't think the purpose of government was to get even with some people. We believed in private property rights. We didn't get caught up in this class warfare claptrap. Not when this country was built. Obama's actions, Obama's philosophy would have been considered tyranny. Obama would have been an outcast at the founding of this country. Obama would have been rejected, and so would his preacher, Reverend Wright. That's what Obama knows about the economy, is what he's been taught by Saul Alinsky and what he's been taught by the Harvard faculty and what he was taught by Reverend Wright. What is Obama's favorite line from Reverend Wright's Audacity to Hope speech? I know what it is. The favorite line is white folks' greed runs a world in need. That's what Obama knows.

Obama looks through the prism of racism at this world and he sees an America as founded as unjust and immoral. "White folks' greed runs a world in need." That is what Reverend Wright said; that's what Obama believes. Reverend Wright was also out preaching against middle classness. We have played those sound bites of Reverend Wright saying such a thing. So Obama's propaganda is the propaganda of failed, dead regimes: the old Soviet Union, Cuba. Obama's railing against capitalism. He's railing against private property. He's railing against trickle down. In his audience is a bunch of socialists, a bunch of union people. Barack Obama is the antithesis of the founding of this country. He would have been rejected as a bit player. Had Obama been around at the founding of this country and had he been known, he would be a joke in American history books today. But not now. Now he's president.

I want to rephrase something here before we go to the top of the hour break. Obama has rejected the American people and that's why the American people are rejecting Obama. He has no business talking about how this country was built 'cause it never would have been if it were up to people like him.

~ snipet ~

Everything he believes and everything he has put his emphasis on is failing left and right. Every theory that he has subscribed to for job creation and economic revitalization has done just the opposite. We're looking at a one-man wrecking crew, and he's here in Milwaukee and he is talking to a bunch of union thugs and he dares to tell the rest of the people in the country that he and only he can tell them what they need to do to wait around for the economy to revive, when everybody in the world knows that the single best thing that could happen for this economy is to get him out of any position of power to run it. Pure and simple. So to have to sit here and be lectured to by the wrecking ball, as somebody who doesn't have the slightest idea what he's talking about, he's a community organizer, he's nothing more than an agitator. He's so henpecked that when he leaves the house for dinner he goes and gets burgers because his wife is making him eat watercress.

He has not served this country. He has failed it and he continues to fail this country.

Long Island Man Arrested For Defending Home With AK-47

Long Island Man Arrested For Defending Home With AK-47

CBS New York


He was arrested for protecting his property and family.

But it’s how the Long Island man did it that police say crossed the line.

He got an AK-47 assault rifle, pulled the trigger and he ended up in jail, reports CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman.

George Grier said he had to use his rifle on Sunday night to stop what he thought was going to be an invasion of his Uniondale home by a gang he thought might have been the vicious “MS-13.” He said the whole deal happened as he was about to drive his cousin home.
“I went around and went into the house, ran upstairs and told my wife to call the police. I get the gun and I go outside and I come into the doorway and now, by this time, they are in the driveway, back here near the house. I tell them, you know, ‘Can you please leave?’ Grier said.
Grier said the five men dared him to use the gun; and that their shouts brought another larger group of gang members in front of his house.
“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass,” Grier said.

Grier was later arrested. John Lewis is Grier’s attorney.

“What he’s initially charged with – A D felony reckless endangerment — requires a depraved indifference to human life, creating a risk that someone’s going to die. Shooting into a lawn doesn’t create a risk of anybody dying,” Lewis said.
Grier said he knew Nassau County Police employ the hi-tech “ShotSpotter” technology in his area and that the shooting would bring police in minutes. Cops told Guzman he was very cooperative.
Grier also said he was afraid the gang outside his house was the dreaded MS-13. And Nassau County Police Lt. Andrew Mulraine, head of the gang unit, said MS-13 has 2,000 members in the county.
“They’re probably the most organized. They almost have a military hierarchy within the gang, so they are the most organized gang we encounter on a daily basis,” Mulraine said.

You may think a person has the right to defend their home. But the law says you can only use physical force to deter physical force. Grier said he never saw anyone pull out a gun, so a court would have to decide on firing the gun.

Police determined Grier had the gun legally. He has no criminal record. And so he was not charged for the weapon.

That ShotSpotter technology pinpoints where a gun has been fired within 35 feet. Police said it also detected two other shootings in nearby Roosevelt that night.

If a free citizen cannot be allowed to possess a fully-functional AK 47, then he is not a free citizen.

This man, was protecting his wife, children, and home - after being threatened verbally with death by 20 gang members, is the one charged by the police.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government won't enforce its own immigration laws, and sues the one state that at least attempts to find out who is even here illegally!

Obama to Mark 9/11 Anniversary at Pentagon



Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs says Obama will commemorate the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks at a memorial service at the Pentagon.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said that the president would attend a service at the Pentagon, while Vice President Joe Biden will travel to “Ground Zero,” the site of the attacks on the World Trade Center in Manhattan, for a separate service.
First lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush will attend a memorial service in Pennsylvania, the site of the plane crash of Flight 93.
The president last year attended a wreath-laying ceremony at the Pentagon.


Obama's good friend of 20 years William Ayers bombed in the early 1970s.
AYERS: "Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them" (William Ayers: Fugative Days page 256)

Wild Thing's comment........

Clearly, Obama wants no photo of him at a 9/11 ceremony. Has anyone else noticed that Obama rarely, if ever, is publicly present at any highly visible national ceremony, such as 9/11 Memorial Day wreath ceremony. My belief is that Obama does not want his Arab/Muslim buddies to see him participating in deeply american celebrations.

Obama wants to be in a closed environment he can carefully control so there are no embarrassing, unscripted outbursts.
He is afraid of what humiliating PR moments might be generated by the First Amendment rights of concerned citizens.

Remember after he was elected and then he had to go with President GW Bush on 9-11 to Ground Zero “commemorating” 9/11 and he just walked briskly by all the flowers and literally tossed the rose he carried onto the pile. Lots of disdain on his face.

Obama is a a disgrace!!!!

City Council Meetings to Begin with Muslim Prayers

In the wake of the battle over a mosque at Ground Zero, a move by the Hartford City Councilis sure to have its critics.

City Council Meetings to Begin with Muslim Prayers

NBC Connecticut

The Council announced Tuesday that it has invited local imams to perform Islamic invocations at the beginning of the Council meetings in September.

Though meetings don't regularly begin with any form of prayer, an email from the Common Council called it "an act of solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters."

The email even referenced the ongoing issue in New York. "One of the goals of the Council is to give a voice to the many diverse peoples of the City, which is especially important given the recent anti-Islam events throughout the country."

Council President rJo Winch called it an important move for the Council. "I feel it is very important that, as a Council, we project a culture of inclusiveness in the City of Hartford. Too often it is our differences that divide us. In my opinion, it is our combination of differences that makes us strong," Winch said.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Insane. Opening a meeting by praying to Satan,

Though meetings don't regularly begin with any form of prayer, an email from the Common Council called it "an act of solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters."

It's an act of voluntary himmitude and nitwit political correctness.

Can't put the 10 Commandments on the building, can't have a “Christmas” tree it's gotta be a “holiday tree”, can't even say “Merry Christmas” at work any more has to be “happy holidays”, can't have a nativity scene seen anywhere on public property, secularism and atheism are given preferential treatment over Christianity or Judea-ism every single day of the week... but now they want to start an official meeting with a Muslim prayer? Throw every last one of the hypocritical bums out!

Terrorism wins big. I cannot understand our cowardise at all. And the hatred of Christians and Jews which is spreading in our country and this insane respect for our worst enemy who killed so many innocent Americans. I don't understand.

Fox's Brian Kilmead Not Prepared For Guest ~ LOL

Fox Runs B-Roll Instead of Showing Transgendered Guest--Host Kilmeade Tries Not To Laugh

It turns out Kimberly Richards - A Public and Legislative Affairs Director for S. California Transit Advocates - is not a she. She is a HE who used to be a SHE.

As you will see at the opening of this clip, Fox's Brian Kilmead was not prepared for this guest!

Then the Fox producers - through the rest of the segment - stick to B Roll (read: a still picture of a subway turn style!) rather than show the face and the voice that doesn't match the face.

There was not even an attempt by Kimberly to SOUND like a woman.

Colorado High School Student: Security Told Me To Remove U.S. Flags

Jeremy Stoppel, a high school student who has two 3′x5′ American flags on his pickup truck was told by campus security to take them down. Jeremy said that the security guard told him that “this is a school that focuses on diversity” and that she didn’t “want anyone to feel uncomfortable.”

The principal of the school, Mary Lindimore, says the school itself PROMOTES the flag. She intends to speak with the security supervisor soon to find out what’s going on.

Teen: Security Told Me To Remove U.S. Flags

High School Student Has 3x5 Feet U.S. Flags In Truck Bed

Denver News


A high school student in Northglenn is upset that campus security told him to remove the large American flags flying from his pickup truck because it might make others uncomfortable.

Jeremy Stoppel told 7NEWS he got a ticket at Northglenn High School last Thursday for squealing his tires. He said he deserved that ticket and deserved having his parking lot pass suspended for two weeks.

But he's upset that campus security then told him he can't fly his 3 feet by 5 feet flags in the bed of his pickup truck anymore.

"She said I should take my flags down. She said this is a school that focuses on diversity and she doesn't want anyone to feel uncomfortable," Stoppel said. "How do you suppose anyone would feel uncomfortable in America with an American flag? That's where I'm confused."
He said he started flying his flags around school last week.
"Now that I finally get to drive to school, I have a truck, that's what I want to do. I want to fly my flags. September 11th is coming up so I wanted to fly them in honor of that," said Stoppel, who said his cousin is serving in the Navy.

Stoppel and his father want an apology from that security supervisor.

"To me, she's just threatening him, hoping that she can just bully him so he'll just take 'em down and just put his tail between his legs and say, 'I'm done. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.' And that's just not gonna happen," said Dan Stoppel, Jeremy's father.

7NEWS checked and the school has no policy against flying the American flag. In fact, Northglenn High School has a U.S. flag on the flag pole in front of the school.

"I am unaware of that situation. So I need to talk to that person, see why they did that, if they did that," said Northglenn High School principal Dr. Mary Lindimore. "We have 'em in the hallways upstairs. So we promote flying of American flags."

There is a policy that bans anything that creates a safety problem or which disrupts the educational environment.

When 7NEWS asked Lindimore if she could imagine any scenario in which the American flag would disrupt the educational environment, Lindimore said no.

Lindimore promised to talk to the security supervisor next week.

Wild Thing's comment........

If one is uncomfortable in America, with American flags displayed, maybe one should get out of America. Every student should put flags on their cars or trucks and go to school that way..Get these anti Americans out of our schools .

The kid should have absolutely refused to take the flags down. Let them do what they feel they had to do. I am amazed that today, it is illegal to fly the American flag any place in our country.

America's Least Wanted, Most Hated President, Arrogant Obama Bashing and More Lies At Rally In Wisconsin

Obama as he spoke to a Labor Day crowd in Wisconsin yesterday. Obama trotted out his “car in the ditch” analogy, claiming he has worked hard to get the economic car out of the ditch while Republicans have stood by having a “slurpee.”

Who is it that has been sipping on a slurpee? Our “Vacationer-in-Chief” has been doing a pretty good job of enjoying himself while the economy remains mired with 9.6% unemployment – much worse than when he took office. Obama has played nearly 50 rounds of golf, taken multiple vacations this summer alone, and gone to Camp David 15 times in less than two years.


Obama Whines at Wisconsin Rally: “They Talk About Me Like a Dog”

Obama at the same rally in Wisconsin, where he whined about those who have opposed his massive spending and ObamaCare agenda. Obama said about his critics, “They talk about me like a dog.”

Dictator Obama and Now He Wants MORE "stimulus" Spending..... $50 BILLION

Obama to Call for $50 Billion Spending on Public Works

NY Times

Obama on Monday is to called for as much as $50 billion in government spending to start up a long-term public works plan emphasizing transportation projects – roads, rail and airport runways – over the next six years.

Mr. Obama layed out the plan, which is intended to promote the quick creation of construction jobs but would require Congressional approval, during a trip to Milwaukee on Monday afternoon, where he observed Labor Day by attending a union festival.

The spending is one part of a broader economic recovery package that Mr. Obama is to unveil during a speech in Cleveland on Wednesday.

With Democrats looking at a bleak election season, in large part because of high unemployment, the White House has been scrambling to find ways to jump-start the sagging economy.

While Mr. Obama’s plan would call for investment over six years, the White House says it would be front-loaded with an initial investment of $50 billion in taxpayer money, to help create jobs in the shorter term. The administration says it would work with Congress to find ways to pay for the plan, so that it would not add to the nation’s rising deficit. One possibility would be to cut existing subsidies for oil and gas exploration and production.

White House officials said Mr. Obama wanted to rebuild 15,000 miles of roads, construct and maintain 4,000 miles of railway – enough track to span the continent — and rehabilitate or reconstruct 150 miles of airport runways while putting in place a system that would reduce travel time and airport delays.

The president will also call for what the White House is describing as an “infrastructure bank” that would focus on paying for national and regional transportation projects.

Charles Krauthammer responded to Obama’s latest announcement of a six year stimulus plan

“Even Lenin had the modesty to stop at five.”

Charles Krauthammer:

“This is another example of this administration acting for the appearance of activity. It doesn’t have a clue what to do. It just threw a half a trillion dollars at the first stimulus. As we saw earlier in the show, almost 60% of Americans believe it did absolutely nothing. And they have no ideas. The economy is still in a ditch so they come up with a mini-stimulus… I like the way the president announces we hear this is going to be a six-year plan. Even Lenin had the modesty to stop at five.“


Eric Cantor blasted Barack Obama’s latest play from his failed Keynesian playbook

The Politico

House GOP Whip Eric Cantor is coming out against Obama’s $50 billion infrastructure plan by labeling it more “stimulus” spending.

“Today the president will use the Labor Day holiday as the launching pad for yet another government stimulus effort, another play called from the same failed Keynesian playbook,” Cantor said in a statement released before Obama announced his plan in Milwaukee. “More government stimulus does nothing to end this cloud of uncertainty.”

The White House has pushed back against the notion that the proposal to rebuild roads, rails and runways amounts to a second stimulus plan. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said last week that a stimulus plan wasn’t being considered, and on Friday, Obama called his forthcoming plan a “broader package.”

Cantor said Obama’s plan is the White House’s “latest” stimulus effort.

"We need to cut spending immediately and end the environment of uncertainty that continues to impede real private-sector job creation and growth," Cantor said.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Once again we need to call our Congressman and Senators and tell them NO MORE STIMULUS!!!

So, let me get this straight...he is going to kill all of the incentives to drill for oil and gas in this country, and then he is going to slap a carbon tax on us, effectively killing the oil and gas industry.

Petraeus Condemns U.S. Church's Plan to Burn Qurans

Pastor Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., says he will burn copies of the Quran

Afghans burn an effigy of Mr. Jones during an anti-U.S. demonstration in Kabul on Monday.


Gen. David Petraeus Warns Plans by Church to Burn the Koran on Sept. 11 Could Endanger U.S. Troops

The Wall Street Journal


The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.

Gen. David Petraeus said the Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians.
"It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort," Gen. Petraeus said in an interview. "It is precisely the kind of action the Taliban uses and could cause significant problems. Not just here, but everywhere in the world we are engaged with the Islamic community."

Hundreds of Afghans attended a demonstration in Kabul on Monday to protest the plans of Florida pastor Terry Jones, who has said he will burn copies of Islam's holy book to mark the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Afghan protesters chanted "death to America," and speakers called on the U.S. to withdraw its troops. Some protesters threw rocks at a passing military convoy.

Military officials fear the protests will likely spread to other Afghan cities, especially if the event is broadcast or ends up on Internet video.

Mr. Jones, head of the 50-member Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., said in a statement that :

"We understand the General's concerns. We are sure that his concerns are legitimate." Nonetheless, he added, "We must send a clear message to the radical element of Islam. We will no longer be controlled and dominated by their fears and threats."

Mr. Jones has been denied a permit for the demonstration, but has said he plans to go forward with the protest.

Rev. Stephanie Sapp, spokeswoman for the center, said no one from the Pentagon or other federal agencies had expressed concern or asked that the event be canceled. She did say that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had discussed security measures.

Pentagon officials said they were not aware that any Defense officials have reached out directly to Mr. Jones. But military officers said they hoped that Gen. Petraeus's statement—an unusual move since military commanders rarely get involved in politics—would convince Mr. Jones to change his plans.

Gen. Petraeus declined to elaborate on the nature of the threats or violence that could occur, but westerners in Afghanistan have been warned away from restaurants and other public places amid the rising tensions.

Other senior military leaders echoed Gen. Petraeus comments Monday. Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, who oversees the effort to train Afghan security forces said he was informed of the planned Florida protests several days ago by a senior minister in the Afghan government.

Gen. Caldwell said many Afghans do not understand either the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment or the fact that President Barack Obama can't simply issue a decree to stop Mr. Jones from his demonstration. Military officials said they were not trying to deny Mr. Jones his right to free speech, but feared he was not thinking about the consequences of his actions.

"There is no question about First Amendment rights; that is not the issue," Gen. Caldwell said. "The question is: What is the implication over here? It is going to jeopardize the men and women serving in Afghanistan."

Military officials also fear that if video of the Quran burning is broadcast in Afghanistan, tensions could rise between NATO forces and the Afghan military and police. Allegations of mishandling the Quran have interrupted Afghan security training at least twice this year, Gen. Caldwell said.

In one instance, a Quran fell to the ground when an American officer opened a locker during an inspection of Afghan trainees' barracks. The rumor quickly spread that the officer had thrown it to the ground, angering the trainees at the camp. "He quickly apologized, but rumors took off like wildfire," Gen. Caldwell said. "It was so hard to get the misperception turned around we stopped all training for the rest of the day."

Reports about the Quran have set off violent protests before. A report in Newsweek, later retracted, that a U.S. interrogator at the Guantanamo Bay prison had flushed a Quran down a toilet set off riots in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

I wonder if obama instructed Petraeus to come out with this statement.

Former Rep. Cynthia McKinney Biking Across U.S. in Name of Peace

Ex-lawmaker takes on new venture:

Former Rep. Cynthia McKinney biking across U.S. in name of peace

The Pueblo Chieftain, Pueblo, CO

The message of peace pedaled into Pueblo on Saturday.

Riders with Bike4Peace, including former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, who ran for president in 2008 on the Green Party ticket, stopped in Pueblo on a cross-country trek to the White House.

Bike4Peace website

"We started at the House of Common Sense in Oakland (Calif.) and we're going to end at the White House, which needs some common sense," McKinney said Saturday at the Unitarian Universalist Church on the East Side, where the bikers were treated to a potluck meal.

McKinney and five others cyclists are biking across the U.S. promoting peace and conversations about "climate change, oil wars, health crisis and economic crunch."

The group is using bicycling to show how to reverse those four particular problems — it improves health, is more economical, environmentally friendly and doesn't require oil.

"It's getting people to ride bikes," said one cyclist, Aurelio "Yeyo" Garcia of Seattle, who gave his life to biking four years ago when he got rid of his car, quit his automotive technician job and sold his tools.

Riding partner Vernon Huffman of Oregon said he hasn't owned a car for a few years.

"We rely on cars to go everywhere and that's why (as a society) we're not really healthy," the former Los Angeles bus driver said. He explained how the simple act of bike riding could change world, national and personal problems.
"The bicycle is an empowering tool. I can go anywhere I want with it. It could be used to help climb out of homelessness. If you have a bicycle, people can get to work, get to appointments. They don't have to worry about transportation," Huffman said.

The group's journey began July 24. They have logged about 1,300 miles so far and leave today, heading east on U.S. 50 for Haswell, Colo., and then Kansas.

The cyclists are riding without any motor support.

For McKinney, who isn't a trained cyclist, the journey has been "challenging."

"The founders of Bike4Peace have done a wonderful job of marrying these two topics together, peace with bicycling," the Georgia native said.
"What I've found is that as we travel to all these different communities and engage in a different dialogue, we find commonality on these issues that these communities didn't know they had," she said.

Saturday's potluck gave Green Party candidates Bob Kinsey and Gary Swing an opportunity to stump in Pueblo.

Swing is running for U.S. Congress and Kinsey for U.S. Senate.

South Carolina GOP Has FINALLY Had Enough and Censures Linidsey Graham

Aiken GOP censures Graham

South Carolina Republican Party members have had enough from progressive Senator Lindsey Graham. The Aiken County Republican Party recently approved a formal censure of the controversial senator.

Herald Online

The Aiken County Republican Party has approved a formal censure of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

The party’s executive committee took the action Thursday, joining a handful of other county parties, including Greenville’s GOP.

Committee member Pete Seaha, who also is the Aiken County Tea Party chairman, wrote the resolution and introduced it at the meeting. The resolution states in part that Graham won’t be invited to any party meetings or events.

“I don’t believe the senator is sticking to conservative Republican principles,” said Seaha. “In my mind, the senator has disrespected his constituents. He has said publicly on a talk show that he didn’t care what they thought.”

Seaha said it was his understanding that 18 people on the executive committee supported the resolution, while two opposed it and two abstained.

Kevin Bishop, a Graham spokesman, said via e-mail that while some of the senator’s friends may not want to meet with him, “his door will always be open. Sen. Graham respects those who disagree with him, but he strongly believes we need to keep an open dialogue.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

I bet his vote for Kagan sealed the deal about their decision. And there was also his relentless push for amnesty, heck there is a whole list one could mention. In the past Lindsey has publicly stated he pays little attention to the desires of his constituents.

Remember when he said this just a little while back........

“Everything I’m doing now in terms of talking about climate, talking about immigration, talking about Gitmo is completely opposite of where the tea party movement’s at,” Graham says. “The problem with the tea party, I think, is it’s just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out.”

Military Judge Says Evidence Could Be An "EMBARRASSMENT" to Obama

Military judge to Lakin: Find another defense

Rules that officer challenging Obama's eligibility can't see evidence


FT. MEADE, Md. – A career officer in the U.S. Army acting as a judge in the prosecution of Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin today ruled that the military is no place for Barack Obama's presidential eligibility to be evaluated.

Army Col. Denise R. Lind today ruled in a hearing regarding the evidence to be allowed in the scheduled October court-martial of Lakin that he will be denied access to any of Obama's records as well as any testimony from those who may have access to the records.

With her decision, Lind mirrored a number of federal judges who have ruled on civil lawsuits over Obama's eligibility. They have without exception denied the plaintiffs' access to any requested documentation regarding the president's eligibility.

Lind ruled that it was "not relevant" for the military to be considering such claims, that the laws allegedly violated by Lakin were legitimate on their face and that the chain of command led up to the Pentagon, and that should have been sufficient for Lakin.

Paul Rolf Jensen, Lakin's civilian attorney, said the case would continue. But he said the courts now have denied his client the opportunity to present his defense.

Jensen had argued that under U.S.C. Rule 46, a defendant put on court martial has the right to call any and all witnesses and obtain any evidence in his or her defense.

Lind, who took 40 minutes to read her decision to the court, disagreed.

She said opening up such evidence could be an "embarrassment" to the president, and it's up to Congress to call for impeachment of a sitting president.

The decision came just days after a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general who commanded forces armed with nuclear weapons said the disclosure of Obama's documentation is not just critical to Lakin's defense, but to the preservation of the nation itself.

The vehement statements came in an affidavit from retired Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney, a Fox News military analyst, that was disclosed by an organization generating support for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin.

....continue with article here..........


Wild Thing's comment...........

Wow OK, this screams the Judge is more concerned with any “embarrassment” dictator Obama might feel than with upholding the Constitution.

Michelle Obama and WH Encouraging Pediatricians to Prescribe Drugs for Overweight Children

Michelle Obama has made dealing with the problem of childhood obesity the main theme of her term as First Lady.

Michelle Obama reveals some requirement of the new Health Care law that seemed to have been hidden in its 2,000+ pages. Nancy Pelosi famously said "We have to pass the bill to see what is in the bill." Well, now we are finding out little gems like this.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Wow. This sounds like the type of thing that would happen in 3rd world country.

All they have to do is put gym class back in schools. I was so surprised when I found out they had stopped having a gym class and put the left's agenda in place of it.

I bet their plan is to get kids addicted to drugs now and they can be guaranteed demoRats when the get older.

I say why not prescribe jail for the Obamas and throw away the keys.

Well since it is Labor Day, eat drink and be merry for the future is socialized medicine and it looks like it just gets worse the more we find out about this monster obamacare. They threw everything in it, omg what a nightmare.

Double Standard Democrats Want To Ban Conservatives "Young Gun" Book Promotion

Remember the other day I posted this promotional video above about the “Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders”

Well, now the lefties don't like it so the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against the promotion of the “Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders” book by Reps. Eric Cantor of Virginia, Kevin McCarthy of California and Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. In addition to the book they have a promotion tour and released a video.

The DCCC’s argument is that promoting the book violates election law.

Which prompted this statement:

“After a year of failing to get Americans back to work, with a president embarrassingly off message, and with candidates hemorrhaging in the polls, it’s no wonder the DCCC is hyperventilating,” said Brad Dayspring, Eric Cantor’s spokesman.

Democrats argue it is fine to ban book promotion

The “Young Guns” have a book. They also have a promotion tour and a video. Now, the Democrats could engage in a battle of ideas. But that’s not what they do. (are you surprised?)

Instead the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee files a complaint with the Federal Election Commission that promoting the book violates election law. Really. By their interpretation, a book publisher cannot promote a book if it is political.

What is the mechanism? The publisher posts a video by the authors about their book that contains a link to a website that takes political contributions. It is after all, a political manifesto.

Restating, Democrats use the power of the federal government to attempt to prohibit the political speech and promotion of speech by their political enemies. That’s the kind of thing that lead to the American Revolution. Tea Parties make perfect sense in this context


Wild Thing's comment.......

So I have a question for the democrats.. The democrats tax all of us to give money to the Unions and the Unions use that money to donate to THEIR canidates that are all democrats. We found this out since Obama became president and we learned where money from the stimuls that Obama did had gone to and......also how the Unions had asked for more money and Obama saw fit to try and make that happen once again as well. All from OUR Tax dollars from us even if we are not democrats.

So why the hell is it OK for the democrats to do that and then they turn around and say what they have about the book and video by the “Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders”.

States Join Legal Brief Supporting Ariz. Immigration Law as Donations Roll Into Gov. Brewer's Defense Fund

States Join Legal Brief Supporting Ariz. Immigration Law as Donations Roll Into Gov. Brewer's Defense Fund

FOX News


Nearly a dozen states have filed a legal brief in support of Arizona's controversial immigration law.

A"friend of the court" brief filed with the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday argues that a federal judge was wrong to block implementation of key provisions of the law.

The brief submitted by Michigan Attorney General Michael Cox argues that the judge used the wrong legal standard to rule on the U.S. Justice Department's request for a preliminary injunction.

It also says the judge erred in ruling that the law interferes with the executive branch's immigration enforcement priorities.

Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia joined in the filing.

In addition to the legal brief, a Wyoming man has given more than $1.5 million to help defend Arizona's controversial immigration enforcement measure in court, Gov. Jan Brewer's office said Thursday.

The contribution from Timothy Mellon of Saratoga is the largest to Brewer's defense fund, which has amassed more than $3.6 million from 41,000 donors nationwide. Mellon could not immediately be reached for comment.

The latest legal bills released Thursday show Brewer's office has spent more than $440,000 for the first two months of defending the law.

The bills, obtained through a public records request by The Associated Press, are for work performed through June by Phoenix law firm Snell & Wilmer. They do not cover July hearings in federal court before a judge Susan Bolton temporarily blocked enforcement of the law's most controversial provisions.

Brewer has appealed Bolton's order to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Her office is defending the state against seven lawsuits challenging Arizona's law, including cases filed by the U.S. Justice of Department, civil rights groups and two police officers.

Bolton has dismissed two of the cases.

"The fees incurred have been, and will continue to be, sizeable," Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman said, noting there have been more than 900 legal filings totaling more than 12,000 pages.

Arizona's law would generally require officers enforcing other measures to check the immigration status of people they suspect are illegal immigrants.

Bolton would not really elaborate, because he said he believes the focus should be on the 2010 Midterm Elections right now. But when asked point if he was “not saying ‘no’,” Bolton flat out said, “I’m not saying ‘no.’”

No Longer On God's Side Notre Dame Abruptly Fires An Admin Member For Attending Pro-Life Rally

Notre Dame Associate Vice-President of Residence Life Bill Kirk was fired by the university for attending a pro-life rally. This is the same “Catholic” University that gave pro-infanticide President Obama an honorary degree.

A top pro-life professor at the University of Notre Dame is calling into question the motives of the university after Bill Kirk, a long-time member of the Notre Dame community and the only administration member to join a protest against President Obama's appearance on campus, was abruptly terminated.

In May 2009, Kirk boycotted the official graduation ceremony at which President Obama was giving the commencement address and receiving an honorary law degree, and instead attended an alternate graduation ceremony held by pro-life graduates protesting Obama. Bishop John D'Arcy of Fort Wayne-South Bend, whose diocese includes the campus, also opted to attend the alternate ceremony.

The Observer newspaper reported Thursday that Father Tom Doyle, Notre Dame’s new Vice-President for Student Affairs, had terminated Kirk from his position as Associate Vice-President for Residence Life.

Doyle praised Kirk's "thoughtful and caring" service as Student Affairs administrator, but said he had been fired "in anticipation of a restructuring that I want to do."

A Notre Dame spokesman refused to comment to about the reasons behind Kirk's termination, saying only that the university does not discuss personnel issues.

But Notre Dame philosophy professor David Solomon, the founder and director of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, said on the Center's blog, that he sees a connection between Kirk’s “removal from office” and what he called “the background of other events at Notre Dame that inevitably raised questions about its real motivation."
Solomon suggested that Kirk's insistence on maintaining school-wide disciplinary standards for Notre Dame football athletes helped precipitate the move. However, the professor also said the news appears to confirm fears that Kirk's stand against the highly controversial honor to Obama would prove fatal.
"At the time Bill took part in the NDResponse rally, many people commented on the courage it took for him to stand with his wife and other witnesses to this protest of Notre Dame’s decision to award President Obama an honorary degree. I personally discounted these worries, believing that the Notre Dame administration would admire him for his principled stand on a matter so close to the Catholic heart of Notre Dame, even if they disagreed with his particular action," wrote Solomon.
Since the administration welcomed Obama's own "sharp dissent from and attack on central Catholic teaching on life," he continued, "It seemed only reasonable that they would equally welcome dissent from university policy by such a loyal Catholic and member of the Notre Dame family as Bill Kirk — especially when his dissent was made in the name of the Catholic principles at Notre Dame’s heart and in the company of his bishop.
"Perhaps, alas, there was reason for Bill Kirk to be worried about his participation in NDResponse after all."
The professor said Kirk's treatment would undoubtedly have "a chilling effect" on un-tenured administrators in public policy and moral debates on campus. He noted that "a number of other administrators have told me that in light of Bill Kirk’s treatment, they will in the future keep their heads down rather than dissent from the policies of the central administration." "It will be tragic if these pressures toward uniformity become a permanent feature of Notre Dame life," he wrote.
Solomon said that what he termed the "callousness and brutal insensitivity" of Kirk's termination has had "the greatest impact" on the close-knit Notre Dame community: Kirk and his wife Elizabeth, who have already adopted two young children, were in the process of adopting a third at the time of the firing.

The professor contrasted the situation with the magnanimity shown by former Notre Dame President Rev. Ted Hesburgh to Ralph McInerny decades ago when, as an assistant philosophy professor, McInerny received monetary help as he struggled to make ends meet following the tragic death of his 4-year-old son from a brain tumor.

"It may be that in an era when Notre Dame has become more of a brand and less of a community, such actions are no longer possible and that those of us who long for them are simply being naive," wrote Solomon.
"If so, it is surely a great loss."

The prestigious Catholic university has been widely criticized for its handling of other aspects of the Obama controversy as well. Notre Dame president Rev. John Jenkins continues to refuse to request leniency for 88 pro-life witnesses arrested for peacefully protesting Obama's presence on campus, while pro-Obama and pro-Notre Dame protesters were allowed to roam free. Several pro-life leaders have unsuccessfully urged Jenkins to intervene for the pro-lifers, who continue to face up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine under prosecution by St. Joseph County.

Wild Thing's comment........


That’s how the left does things. There is no freedom of opinion any longer. Father ( Lucifer) Tom Doyle Jenkins does not like opposition. What a smug SOB! The Catholic Church should officially sever all ties with the university, and all other “Catholic” institutions like it, that fail to uphold and defend the teachings of the Church. I say this as a non-Catholic.

I pray that they never have another winning season. Call it "the Father Jenkins curse."

Notre Dame is now in the hands of pro-aborton evil. Itis no longer a Catholic University but a bastion of the athiestic Rat party and their god obama. It is false to call it a "Catholic University." UND is no more Catholic than the University of Baghdad.

Obama and His Brand New Oval Office Rug Gets History Wrong

Oval Office rug gets history wrong

The Washington Post

A mistake has been made in the Oval Office makeover that goes beyond the beige.

President Obama’s new presidential rug seemed beyond reproach, with quotations from Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. woven along its curved edge.

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” According media reports, this quote keeping Obama company on his wheat-colored carpet is from King.

Except it’s not a King quote. The words belong to a long-gone Bostonian champion of social progress. His roots in the republic ran so deep that his grandfather commanded the Minutemen at the Battle of Lexington.

For the record, Theodore Parker is your man, President Obama. Unless you’re fascinated by antebellum American reformers, you may not know of the lyrically gifted Parker, an abolitionist, Unitarian minister and Transcendentalist thinker who foresaw the end of slavery, though he did not live to see emancipation. He died at age 49 in 1860, on the eve of the Civil War.

A century later, during the civil rights movement, King, an admirer of Parker, quoted the Bostonian’s lofty prophecy during marches and speeches. Often he’d ask in a refrain, “How long? Not long.” He would finish in a flourish: “Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” .

These are the quotations the president chose for his rug:

* “The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself” – President Franklin D. Roosevelt

* “The Arc of the Moral Universe Is Long, But It Bends Towards Justice” – Martin Luther King Jr.

* “Government of the People, By the People, For the People” – President Abraham Lincoln

* “No Problem of Human Destiny Is Beyond Human Beings” – President John F. Kennedy

* “The Welfare of Each of Us Is Dependent Fundamentally Upon the Welfare of All of Us” – President Theodore Roosevelt

Wild Thing's comment........

Confucius say, White house so crooked, even rug lie.

Obama can take the rug home with him when he gets impeached (preferably) or kicked out of office in 2012.

I would put this quote on Obama's rug:

"The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted."........Pslam 12:8

Sheriff Joe's Response to the DOJ Lawsuit Against Him

Byron York on Fox News uncovers new information on the Arpaio/Justice case

Sheriff Joe's Response to the DOJ Lawsuit Against Him

Arpaio has reacted with outright defiance.

"This is the people of Arizona they are going against, using me as a puppet," Arpaio said at a press conference on Thursday. "They're not going to put handcuffs on this sheriff. I'm not going to surrender!"

The following is an official statement by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio regarding today's lawsuit filed against his office by the U.S. Justice Department in Washington, D.C. for alleged refusal to turn over documents. It is followed by another statement from his Washington, D.C. attorney, Bob Driscoll.

"The Obama administration has filed three lawsuits against Arizona in the last few weeks ... one against a college district, one against the state of Arizona and now one against my office. Each lawsuit centers on something to do with alleged racial discrimination.
These actions make it abundantly clear that Arizona, including this Sheriff, IS Washington's new whipping boy. Now it's time to take the gloves off.
As for today's lawsuit against my office: These people in Washington met with my attorneys only a few days ago. And in that meeting, Washington got our cooperation; they admitted they already have thousands of pages of the requested documents; and they were given access to interview my staff and get into my jails.
They smiled in our faces and then stabbed us in the back with this lawsuit. The Obama administration intended to sue us all along, no matter what we did to try to avert it.
Washington isn't playing fair and it's time Americans everywhere wake up and see this administration for what it really is. Calculating, underhanded at times and certainly not looking out for the best interests of the legal citizens residing in this country. "



"Today's lawsuit by the Department of Justice is part of a deliberate media strategy to "get tough" on Sheriff Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and undermine immigration enforcement by a local Sheriff who is trying desperately to make up for this Administration's own indifference to the topic.
The DOJ suit speaks loudly by what it does not say. It does not allege that Sheriff Arpaio or the MCSO have discriminated against anyone because the DOJ, after 18 months of soliciting allegations against Sheriff Arpaio, has come up empty. Even the purported basis for the suit, which alleges a lack of "cooperation," is a sham.

In fact, after meeting with the DOJ last week, just last Friday, on behalf of MCSO,
I informed the DOJ that MCSO would cooperate with all reasonable document
requests and would schedule tours of MCSO facilities and interviews with senior
MCSO command staff. We were awaiting a response from DOJ, and this lawsuit
is apparently it. Clearly DOJ is more interested filing its third lawsuit in as many
weeks against Arizona defendants than in looking into the allegations that
purportedly gave rise to its investigation. This lawsuit is nothing more than an
attempt to obscure the fact that DOJ still has no case. Today's suit over documents
does not change that."


Wild Thing's comment........

I am 100% behind all the Legal Citizens of Arizona and the excellent job Sherriff Joe and the Gov. Jan are doing to fight the DOJ who are taking their marching orders from the crooked US Attn. General and his boss pres. obama or should I state Dictator Obama.

Coming to a Mosque Near You: “Pimping for Terrorists” ~ Orlando Mosque Finances Hamas Fundraiser

Orlando Mosque Finances Hamas Fundraiser

Coming to a Mosque Near You: “Pimping for Terrorists”

by Jerry Gordon (September 2010)

The eruption of mega-mosque conflicts across America has raised numerous questions, in more than a dozen cases, about who is funding these multi-million dollar projects. And, in addition, whether there could be any Muslim Brotherhood connections and any possibility of their raising funds for foreign terrorist groups like Hamas.

"Money continues to flow in the other direction, as well," said Mosab Hassan Yousef "Son of Hamas."

He noted the FBI documented that the Holy Land Foundation sent $12.4 million from the U.S. to Hamas committees. But based on his 10 years of experience as a spy for the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, he believes many times that amount has been smuggled to Hamas in cash.
As an example, Yousef cited the case of a Palestinian terror operative he met in prison who was arrested transporting $100,000 after Shin Bet provided information to law enforcement authorities.
"I guarantee you that there still people who collect money in mosques that go directly to Hamas in cash," Yousef said. "And this is a problem that the government doesn't have control over. Obama doesn't have control over this money."

The flashpoints of these conflicts stretch across the US from the Ground Zero mosque in lower Manhattan to the expanded Islamic Center of Murfreesboro in Tennessee and the Temecula, California mosque. Private investigative teams have become engaged in tracking down answers to these questions. My colleague at the New English Review, publisher Rebecca Bynum, noted these concerns in a recent Erick Stakelbeck CBN report “Mega Mosques target America’s Heartland”:

Locals also have other concerns--like where the millions of dollars are coming from to pay for the proposed complex.
Mosque officials say the money was raised in the community. But local journalist Rebecca Bynum said she isn't convinced.
"In other mosques, like in Boston and other areas where there have been huge mosques built, the funding did come from overseas, principally from Saudi Arabia, rich individuals from countries like Saudi Arabia and the UAE," she said.
Murfreesboro is not alone. two more mega-mosques are now being planned for Tennessee--one in Memphis and another the town of Antioch, near Nashville.
"It does seem to be part of a larger strategy to build mosques in rural areas and create Islamic communities--large Islamic communities--in rural areas for some larger purpose," said Bynum.
Local public authorities have avoided raising these questions at public hearings, while pointing out the inalienable right under Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of our Constitution giving freedom to establish churches and places of worship without government interference. These mega-mosques push the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood in America by making use of Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom and exemptions from local land zoning processes under the Religious Land Use and Incarcerated Persons Act of 2000. That agenda, according to Frank Gaffney, Jr., President of the Center for Security Policy, is to carry out via stealth a "grand jihad" with the ultimate goal of supplanting our Constitution with strict Islamic Sharia law. In 1993, according to the Chicago Tribune, the US Muslim Brotherhood changed its name to the Muslim American Society and Brotherhood members agreed to refer to themselves as members of MAS rather than the Brotherhood.

Zakat and Hamas

One of the five pillars of Islam is zakat, the Muslim charitable obligation. Cited in the record of the Holy Land Foundation trial, prominent American Muslim Brotherhood fronts, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), North America Islamic Trust (NAIT), and the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), among others, have of funneled more than $12 million to Hamas, the military wing of the Muslim Brotherhood that controls Gaza.

Note what we said about the connections between “Zakat and Terrorism” in a July 2009, New English Review article:

Zakat recipients would include [ . . ]those fulfilling the “way of Allah”, Jihad. [. . .] Zakat money should be used provided the effort is to raise the banner of Islam.
It is the application of Zakat proceeds to Jihad, especially in the US, that is most problematic and made application of counter-terrorism laws troublesome in the eyes of critics like the ACLU.
Jonathan Schanzer, former Treasury counter terrorism expert [now Vice President for Research at the Washington-based, Foundation for the Defense of Democracy] commented to the author that “US government seizures of the assets of Muslim charities were based on intelligence and investigations.”
Private investigators, such as David Gaubatz, co-author with Paul Sperry of Muslim Mafia, have gone undercover and compiled a record of abuses of zakat. These include Muslim Brotherhood fronts’ terrorist connections and allied mosque leaders violating federal laws giving material support to designated foreign terrorist groups under the provisions of the Patriot Act.

The Central Role of George Galloway of Viva Palestina in Raising Zakat for Hamas

George Galloway, whose Respect Party was defeated in the recent British general elections, lost his parliamentary immunity. In April of 2009, Canadian authorities barred his entry on behalf of Viva Palestina, a registered British charity he co-founded to raise funds for Gaza "humanitarian" convoys in direct support of Hamas. The US State Department did not declare him persona non grata and permitted his entry here in May and June of 2009. Galloway used that cover to considerable advantage. Over a period of a year, he was in the US virtually every weekend making appearances at universities such as Ohio State and the University of California at Irvine raising millions for humanitarian aid to be conveyed to the Hamas government via the Viva Palestina convoys. According to the IFCO website, Galloway is poised to conduct a fifth convoy to Gaza in aid of Hamas on September 18, 2010. The website notes:

Viva Palestina is launching "Viva Palestina 5 - a global lifeline to Gaza", a gigantic land convoy leaving London on Saturday, 18th September in conjunction with convoys leaving from Casablanca and Doha and timed to coordinate with a larger and even more international flotilla aiming to reach Gaza by sea at the same time as the land convoys reach by land.

Note the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) complaint and request for investigation about Galloway’s appearance and fund raising at UC Irvine in this New University report:

In May 2009, the Muslim Student Union (MSU) at UC Irvine, hosted the school-sponsored event, “Israel: The Politics of Genocide” on campus, where over 850 people attended.

Tom Trento, Director of the Florida Security Council, was at the UC Irvine event and said, “I could not believe that Galloway was overtly raising money for a US designated terrorist organization and he wasn’t hauled away in leg irons!”

The Islamic Society of Central Florida Investigative Film and Its Impact

On June 14, 2009, George Galloway appeared at an event sponsored by the Islamic Society of Central Florida (ISCF). Also in attendance was Mahdi Bray executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation (MASFF) at Imam Muhammad Musri's Al Rahman mosque in Orlando, Florida. The mosque is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). They raised over $55,000 in support of Galloway’s Viva Palestina, a Hamas terror finance conduit. An undercover team of investigators from ACT! For America Jacksonville and Orlando chapters attended the Viva Palestina event. They videoed Galloway and Bray raising funds for Viva Palestina using the cover of the 501(c)(3) tax exempt status of the MASFF.

Galloway and Bray were caught on video misleading the audience telling them their contributions were tax deductible as the MASFF is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non profit institution.

NAIT have been identified as Muslim Brotherhood fronts in the prosecutor’s exhibits of the Federal Holy Land Foundation trial. Evidence produced in the HLF trial record and cited in the You Tube video included a plan of the Muslim Brotherhood to engage in a "grand jihad" aimed at overthrowing our Constitution and replacing it with a Sharia Islamic State.

At the behest of Republican Congresswoman Sue Myrick’s office, the independent video evidence presented here was sent to Steve Emerson of the investigative project on Terrorism ( The video has since been released to the FBI, Treasury Department, and IRS for fraud, violations of the FARA Act and possible violations of providing material support for terrorism.

This documentary – in reality a film dossier – exposes Galloway, in the words of a Canadian government official, “pimping for terrorists.”


The world has woken up. George Galloway speaking at the Anti-Israeli protest outside the Israeli Embassy in London 5th June 2010


Wild Thing's comment........

In the world I was born in, men like this one, Cynthia McKinney, Nancy Pelosi, Cindy Sheehan and Code Pink/Int’l ANSWER types would do hard time or be headed to the gallows. What happened?

Galloway is insane and evil and so are those that agree with him. Islam is a death cult.

Mark Steyn on Names for Hurricanes

Mark Steyn on Sheila Jackson Lee's Concern About "Racist Nomenclature" for Hurricanes

Here is the incomparable Mark Steyn at his hilarious best talking about names for Hurricanes! He specifically comments on Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s objection about the “racist nomenclature” given to Hurricanes – no predominantly African-American names being given to Hurricanes. She had made comments about this a couple of years ago and because of there being a few hurricanes out there right now, it became news again. So Mark Steyn takes her concern and runs with it!

From the past that Mark Steyn was referring to:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, feels that the current names are too "lily white," and is seeking to have better representation for names reflecting African-Americans and other ethnic groups.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas

"All racial groups should be represented," Lee said, according to the Hill. She hoped federal weather officials "would try to be inclusive of African-American names."

A sampling of popular names that could be used include Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn, according to the paper.

Wild Thing's comment......

Mark Steyn is so good. When Rush is off for a day or a few days, I am always glad when his choice to be there is Mark Steyn.

Obama Justice Department Sues Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona

U.S. Sues Arizona Sheriff Over Policing Probe

The Wall Street Journal

The Justice Department filed a civil lawsuit Thursday against Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County, accusing him and his agency of stonewalling a probe into policing practices that some call discriminatory against Hispanics.

The suit is the latest move in months of legal sniping between the two sides. They are also fighting over whether federal prosecutors improperly contacted employees of the sheriff’s office directly to seek testimony, instead of going through lawyers.

Robert Driscoll, a lawyer representing Mr. Arpaio and the Maricopa Sheriff’s Office, didn’t have an immediate response to the suit.

Mr. Arpaio is the elected sheriff for Maricopa County, where Phoenix is located. He has become a vocal critic of illegal immigration and has carried out operations aimed at detaining immigrants and turning them over to federal law enforcement for deportation.

Civil-rights groups have long called Mr. Arpaio’s policies discriminatory. Soon after Attorney General Eric Holder took office last year, the Justice Department said it was investigating those complaints and looking into possible violations of Hispanics’ civil rights.

The Justice Department suit, filed in federal court in Phoenix, said the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office receives millions of dollars in federal funding and is required to cooperate with federal investigations as a condition of receiving those funds.

"The actions of the sheriff's office are unprecedented," said Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for the department's civil rights division. "It is unfortunate that the department was forced to resort to litigation to gain access to public documents and facilities."

Robert Driscoll, a lawyer for Mr. Arpaio and the sheriff's office, said, "I think they're just trying to distract from the fact they have no underlying case. What they don't want to do is to allege that there is any discrimination by the Maricopa sheriff's office, because if they have to prove that they can't."

The two sides met last week to try to work out a deal and evidently emerged with differing views of what occurred. A U.S. official said Justice Department lawyers believed Mr. Driscoll had agreed to the department's document request. But after the Justice Department sent him a letter outlining terms of agreement, Mr. Driscoll responded with a letter laying out certain conditions for cooperation, the official said.

Mr. Driscoll didn't dispute that description of events. "We are never going to agree on everything, but I thought we could go a long way to meeting their requests," he said.
Mr. Arpaio blamed the breakdown on the Justice Department, saying his lawyers tried to cooperate with Washington at last week's meeting.
"They smiled in our faces and then stabbed us in the back with this lawsuit," he said. "The Obama administration intended to sue us all along, no matter what we did to try to avert it."

Wild Thing's comment........

Its official. They filed on Sheriff Joe!

Three lawsuits! Does anybody in the country not think this is harrassment? Where are our senators? Why are they not screaming at the top of their lungs? Where are the other states?

No wonder Obama likes Hugo Chaves. Birds of a feather. This is just another way of controlling state through intimidation.

The message to all who oppose Hussein is clear. Submit or face the consequences.

"The actions of the sheriff's office are unprecedented," said Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for the department's civil rights division. "It is unfortunate that the department was forced to resort to litigation to gain access to public documents and facilities."

This coming from the same Justice Department that has repeatedly refused to turn over documents to the Civil Rights Commission regarding the Black Panther case. Ironic, eh? The same Thomas Perez who can’t find intimidation in Black Panthers wielding clubs outside a polling place.

And Obama's defiant refusal to show his records is also "unprecedented"!

Obama has his boot on Sheriff Joe.

“The economy? Jobs? Who cares about that, I gotta slap down a sheriff for doing his job.”

Sheriff Joe’s reply should be as such:

“You’re either with us, or you’re with the Cartel.”

From The Washington Times...... an article titled.........“Signs in Arizona warn of smuggler dangers”

Drivers advised to travel north!

The federal government has posted signs along a major interstate highway in Arizona, more than 100 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, warning travelers the area is unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers, and a local sheriff says Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.

The signs were posted by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) along a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 8 between Casa Grande and Gila Bend, a major east-west corridor linking Tucson and Phoenix with San Diego.
They warn travelers that they are entering an "active drug and human smuggling area" and they may encounter "armed criminals and smuggling vehicles traveling at high rates of speed." Beginning less than 50 miles south of Phoenix, the signs encourage travelers to "use public lands north of Interstate 8" and to call 911 if they "see suspicious activity."
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, whose county lies at the center of major drug and alien smuggling routes to Phoenix and cities east and west, attests to the violence. He said his deputies are outmanned and outgunned by drug traffickers in the rough-hewn desert stretches of his own county.
"Mexican drug cartels literally do control parts of Arizona," he said. "They literally have scouts on the high points in the mountains and in the hills and they literally control movement. They have radios, they have optics, they have night-vision goggles as good as anything law enforcement has.
"This is going on here in Arizona," he said. "This is 70 to 80 miles from the border - 30 miles from the fifth-largest city in the United States."

He said he asked the Obama administration for 3,000 National Guard soldiers to patrol the border, but what he got were 15 signs.


This is also important to know .......................


Perez is pursuing his goals with a lot of muscle, powered by a major appropriations increase in President Obama’s 2010 budget. “I am going to be calling each and every one of you to recruit you, because we’ve got 102 new positions in our budget,” Perez told the liberal lawyers last year. “One hundred and two people, when added to a base of 715 people. … that’s a real opportunity to make a difference.”
YORK: Perez is playing a leading role in the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law. He is promising a huge increase in prosecution of alleged hate crimes. He vows to use “disparate impact theory” to pursue discrimination cases where there is no intent to discriminate but a difference in results, such as in test scores or mortgage lending, that Perez wants to change. He is even considering a crackdown on Web sites on the theory that the Internet is a “public accommodation” as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
To do all this, Perez has come up with some novel ideas. For example, in a recent lending discrimination case, he forced the defendant — who settled the case without admitting any wrongdoing — to pay not only the alleged victims but to funnel $1 million to unrelated “qualified organizations” to conduct social programs.

KUHNER: President's socialist takeover must be stopped

KUHNER: President's socialist takeover must be stopped

The Washington Times

by Jeffrey Kuhner

Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.

He is slowly - piece by painful piece - erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there - yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela's leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above - one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are Balkanizing the country. It's time for him to go.

He has abused his office and violated his oath to uphold the Constitution. His health care overhaul was rammed through Congress. It was - and remains - opposed by a majority of the people. It could only be passed through bribery and political intimidation. The Louisiana Purchase, the Cornhusker Kickback, the $5 billion Medicaid set-aside for Florida Sen. Bill Nelson - taxpayer money was used as a virtual slush fund to buy swing votes. Moreover, the law is blatantly unconstitutional: The federal government does not have the right to coerce every citizen to purchase a good or service. This is not in the Constitution, and it represents an unprecedented expansion of power.

Yet Obamacare's most pernicious aspect is its federal funding of abortion. Pro-lifers are now compelled to have their tax dollars used to subsidize insurance plans that allow for the murder of unborn children. This is more than state-sanctioned infanticide. It violates the conscience rights of religious citizens. Traditionalists - evangelicals, Catholics, Baptists, Muslims, Orthodox Jews - have been made complicit in an abomination that goes against their deepest religious values. As the law is implemented (as in Pennsylvania) the consequences of the abortion provisions will become increasingly apparent. The result will be a cultural civil war. Pro-lifers will become deeply alienated from society; among many, a secession of the heart is taking place.

Mr. Obama is waging a frontal assault on property rights. The BP oil spill is a case in point. BP clearly is responsible for the spill and its massive economic and environmental damage to the Gulf. There is a legal process for claims to be adjudicated, but Mr. Obama has behaved more like Mr. Chavez or Russia's Vladimir Putin: He has bullied BP into setting up a $20 billion compensation fund administered by an Obama appointee. In other words, the assets of a private company are to be raided to serve a political agenda. Billions will be dispensed arbitrarily in compensation to oil-spill victims - much of it to Democratic constituents. This is cronyism and creeping authoritarianism.

Mr. Obama's multicultural socialism seeks to eradicate traditional America. He has created a command-and-control health care system. He has essentially nationalized the big banks, the financial sector, the automakers and the student loan industry. He next wants to pass "cap-and-trade," which would bring industry and manufacturing under the heel of big government. The state is intervening in every aspect of American life - beyond its constitutionally delegated bounds. Under Mr. Obama, the Constitution has become a meaningless scrap of paper.

To provide the shock troops for his socialist takeover, Mr. Obama calls for "comprehensive immigration reform" - granting amnesty to 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens. This would forge a permanent Democratic electoral majority. It would sound the death knell for our national sovereignty. Amnesty rewards lawlessness and criminal behavior; it signifies the surrender of our porous southern border to a massive illegal invasion. It means the death of American nationhood. We will no longer be a country, but the colony of a global socialist empire.

Rather than defending our homeland, Mr. Obama's Justice Department has sued Arizona for its immigration law. He is siding with criminals against his fellow Americans. His actions desecrate his constitutional oath to protect U.S. citizens from enemies foreign and domestic. He is thus encouraging more illegal immigration as Washington refuses to protect our borders. Mr. Obama's decision on this case is treasonous.

As president, he is supposed to respect the rule of law. Instead, his administration has dropped charges of voter intimidation against members of the New Black Panther Party. This was done even though their menacing behavior was caught on tape: men in military garb brandishing clubs and threatening whites at a polling site. A Justice Department lawyer intimately involved in the case, J. Christian Adams, resigned in protest. Mr. Adams says that under Mr. Obama, there is a new policy: Cases involving black defendants and white victims - no matter how much they cry for justice - are not to be prosecuted. This is more than institutionalized racism. It is an abrogation of civil rights laws. The Justice Department's behavior is illegal. It poses a direct threat to the integrity of our democracy and the sanctity of our electoral process.

Corruption in the administration is rampant. Washington no longer has a government; rather, it has a gangster regime. The Chicago way has become the Washington way. Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a political hit man. He is an amoral, ruthless operator. It was Mr. Emanuel who reached out to Rep. Joe Sestak, Pennsylvania Democrat, offering a high-ranking job in the hopes of persuading Mr. Sestak to pull out of the primary against Sen. Arlen Specter. It was Mr. Emanuel who offered another government position to Andrew Romanoff to do the same in the Colorado Democratic Senate primary. And it was Mr. Emanuel - as the trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has revealed - who acted as the go-between to try to have Valerie Jarrett parachuted into Mr. Obama's former Senate seat. The only question was: What did Mr. Blagojevich want in exchange?

This is not simply sleazy Chicago machine politics. It is the systematic breaking of the law - bribery, attempt to interfere (and manipulate) elections using taxpayer-funded jobs, influence peddling and abuse of power.

The common misperception on the right is that Mr. Obama is another Jimmy Carter: an incompetent liberal whose presidency is being reduced to rubble under the onslaught of repeated failures. The very opposite, however, is true. He is the most consequential president in our lifetime, transforming America into something our Founding Fathers would find not only unrecognizable, but repugnant. Like all radical revolutionaries, he is consumed by the pursuit of power - attaining it, wielding it and maximizing it. Mr. Obama's fledgling thug state must be stopped.

If Republicans win back Congress in November, they should - and likely will - launch formal investigations into this criminal, scandal-ridden administration. Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has promised as much. Mr. Obama has betrayed the American people. Impeachment is the only answer. This usurper must fall.

Afghan Outrage: U.S. Troops Scrounge for Blankets, Bullets

Afghan outrage: U.S. troops scrounge for blankets, bullets

'One of my soldiers went without ammo for 5 weeks'


The parents of an American soldier in Afghanistan have accused the U.S. government of leaving defenders of its freedoms without basics such as blankets, food, feminine hygiene supplies and even bullets, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

"One of my soldiers went without ammo for five weeks once they got to Afghanistan because of shortages. I can't reveal the name, because they are frightened of reprisals. If they can do what they did to a four star general like [Gen. Stanley A.] McChrystal, what would they do to a buck private?"

That comes from a woman who, with her husband, has taken it upon herself to adopt soldiers and provide them with many of the needed basics.

The woman, assigned a pseudonym of "Beth," insisted her name not be used because of the possibility of reprisals against her or the soldiers.

But she told WND she received a report that a U.S. soldier bought a $15 knife "and slept with their hand on the handle in the waist of their pants because it was all they had for the moment to protect themselves."

The woman confirmed she and her husband are involved in supplying the basic necessities for some 50 soldiers – because the military isn't.

"If the military doesn't supply what they need, they must depend on family or people like me," Beth said. "Many of these families are struggling on low wages, some parents are on disabilities and unable to help. Sending a box once a month during their deployment is not only good for their morale, but they need (to be) resupplied with many items."

The Pentagon did not respond to a request for comment on the allegations. But one soldier told Beth the work days are 18 hours long, and they have few "real meals."

Wild Thing's comment........

This is extremely disturbing.

The election of this administration, in addition to both houses of Congress being in the hands of the Democrats, was the worst thing the Americans could have done to our military.

We have GOT to get Kenya Boy out of the WH. We have got to take our country back at all costs.

Obama is more concerned with taxing us to death, playing golf, control over all of us, and that freaking Mosque in NY.

22 US Troops Killed in Afghanistan in Four Days

22 US troops killed in Afghanistan in four days


Twenty two American troops have been killed in Afghanistan in four days, making it one of the bloodiest periods of the summer.

A series of bomb attacks have badly hit US troops in eastern and southern Afghanistan in the past 48 hours, contributing to the toll.

Violence is predicted to rise towards the September 18 parliamentary elections and as American troops begin operations west of Kandahar after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Deaths among the Nato-led coalition have reached 485 this year and are predicted to surpass 2009’s total of 521.

In one of the worst recent attacks five American soldiers died in Kandahar on Monday. Witnesses said their Humvee armoured vehicle was destroyed by a bomb. Three more died in a bomb attack in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday.

The coalition blames the rise in troop deaths partly on the influx of reinforcements, which is allowing commanders to target previously untouched insurgent safe havens where rebels are mounting stiff resistance.

Afghan police and civilians have suffered far higher casualties. The interior ministry has said 229 civilians and 124 policemen were killed in the month to August 22.

Mr Karzai’s frustration at the death toll led him this week to say Nato strategy must change as “fighting (Taliban) in Afghan villages has been ineffective and is not achieving anything but killing civilians".
Gen David Petraeus, senior US and Nato commander in the country, warned fighting would get “harder before it gets easier”.

Homemade bombs using old shells or homemade explosives and hidden in roads, tracks, walls, streams and buildings have become the Taliban’s favoured weapon.

Their use has sparked an arms race with foreign troops evolving tactics, or relying on more heavily armed vehicles and mine detectors to try and avoid them.

Wild Thing's comment........

Obama gave the taliban the green flag.

This is awful, every village near that Bomb/IED should be ankle high.. God Protect our troops from their two enemies ,obama and the taliban. Our troops are being restrained by Obama and his administration!

Obama Speech on Iraq, Rewritten

Obama Speech on Iraq, Rewritten

by WOTN Editor

Obama's new speech on Iraq, as written by me. My future as a speechwriter starts here. I like to capture the true essence of the one's positions and personal beliefs in writing for others.

My Dear Americans, I have chosen this moment to declare the "combat mission" in Iraq is over. Our Troops will still be in harm's way and there will still be shots fired by and at them, but I made a campaign promise to "end the war" and have ALL Troops out within 16 months, without precondition. This speech is designed to claim my promise fulfilled, though I did nothing to achieve the current successes in Iraq, nor to overcome the challenges that persist there. In fact, the current Troop levels were not my doing either. I inherited that from President Bush, just as I did the decreased violence there.

As such, I will stick with my strong suit. I would like to apologize on behalf of myself, my party, and the partisan divide which opposed the Strategy that brought us the Sustained Success and allows us to reduce the number of sacrifices of Our Troops in Iraq. I would like to apologize for stirring up anti-Iraq and anti-Victory partisanship that divided Our Nation and nearly caused a defeat despite those sacrifices and Victories.

I would like to extend a special apology to General David Petraeus, who, despite my insolence, my resistance, and my profiting from personal attacks on him, refused to give up. I owe the General great respect, gratitude, and apology because despite my partisan inspired attacks, he maintains integrity to this Nation and a commitment to Victory. Bottom line is that he believes in these values sufficiently to take a demotion to achieve them when my butt was in a sling.

I would like to apologize to the Iraqi people, who are on the precipice of peace and democracy, but that my own stubborness prevents me from changing from my course. I have to admit I am at a loss for words on how to spin the current political logjam in Iraq into what I want to claim as a personal victory. I did after all say that Iraq needed a political solution and during my tenure it has fallen into political disarray. To speed that along, I sent the master of political gaffes to Baghdad, where he can claim that I didn't use the key phrase "turn the page," in my previous speech. I apologize because Biden is the best we can do to end the political impasse and we sent him at a time of our convenience rather than recognize the cultural significance that now is not the time. We hope that if we threaten them with either increased visits or a long term stay by him, they'll break down and form a government, just to get him out of Baghdad. Having to deal with him on a regular basis, I can tell you, this is a workable strategy.
I feel a special need to apologize to the Iraqi people, because Saddam was truly a sadistic tyrant and I know for a fact he had WMD, because I've suppressed reports that we're still finding them. We're leaving the destruction of those munitions to the Iraqis now. And the fact that all crime and terrorism in Iraq kills half of what Saddam averaged in every month, in Iraqi Civilians alone, of his reign is not my fault. I inherited that from Bush.

........ I encourage all of you to please continue reading the rest of this awesome writing at the source.... War On Terror News website.

And this is the link to the article you see in this post.......... WOTN Obama Speech on Iraq Rewritten.

MSNBC Chris Matthews Not Feeling That Tingling Up His Leg About Obama's Teleprompter ~ LOL

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is starting to get frustrated by Obama’s constant use of the teleprompter. Matthews said,

“I really support the President on a lot of his views, in fact all of them almost, but I got to tell you something…if he doesn’t get rid of that damn teleprompter, it’s like an eye test. He’s just reading words now.” Matthews said Obama is “using the teleprompter instead of his heart and his mind.”
"If he doesn't get rid of that damn teleprompter...He's just reading words now."
Matthews continued, "It's separating him from us."
And continued, "You go to a meeting with him I'm told, businessmen are invited to meet him at the White House, he hauls out the damn teleprompter, and he reads it to them."
"The teleprompter is a problem for this guy. I think it's his menace"


Wild Thing's comment.......

Remember that post I did last year of Obama speaking to a small classroom of 8 year olds and there were only about 14 or 15 students in the small classroom.....BUT Obama had his teleprompter there. Two of them one on either side and also his podiuim as well. hahaha What an ego he has, he had to have it all there.

LOL even with it he will still do his UM sentences. All the BS we had to hear during the campaign even from some conservative talk show people that Obama was a good speaker. I NEVER agreed, never.

Yo Chris Matthews, Obama uses the teleprompter because he is unable to put a group of words together to make a sentence. And, with the teleprompter he does not make any sense.

IMO it means:

It means he cannot think for himself.

It means he must rely on the written word.

It means he fears using his brain for any sort of spontaneous ideas.

It means he is a victim of his ideology just as all his flunkie zombie sheep followers are.

Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf a Taxpayer Subsidized Slumlord !!

FOX Business Network Eric Bolling breaks down his tour of Ground Zero Mosque imam's building in Union City, New Jersey.

NY Post

He's the religious leader of the planned, controversial Ground Zero mosque -- but across the Hudson, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is known as an alleged slumlord.

At buildings in Union City and Palisades Park, where Rauf reportedly got tax dollars to renovate low-income apartments, tenants yesterday said their gripes about their lousy housing conditions have been ignored.

"Why doesn't he help the tenants he has before he builds a new place, claiming he wants to help people?" said a disgusted Jamie Barillas, who lives in a Rauf-owned apartment at 2206 Central Ave. in Union City...

Tenant Vilma Then chided Rauf as greedy.

"All he likes is money," she said. "Nothing ever gets fixed. I complain to the super, and all he says is that he has the same problem."

Vilma Then said she lived at Rauf's building around the corner until a fire forced her to move to 2206 Central Ave. She said her current situation is similar to her old digs, where she had a stove that was more like "a roach den."
She also complained that Rauf's wife, Daisy Khan -- who has been the imam's spokesperson while he is touring overseas -- "listens to what you have to say and writes things down and leaves -- and nothing gets done."
"She gives nothing but false promises," the resident said.


Wild Thing's comment........

I suspect that the Imam is going to find the oncoming wave of public attention to be most unwelcome....stick a fork in Cordoba House. I sure hope this sandmaggot is toast along with the mosque they want to build.

This is Obama’s kind of guy!

The Most Heavily Decorated Veteran of the Modern Era

This is an archived news report, but it's worth showing even now. Robert Lewis Howard (July 11, 1939 – December 23, 2009) was a highly decorated United States Army soldier and Medal of Honor recipient of the Vietnam War. He was wounded 14 times over 54 months of combat, was awarded 8 Purple Hearts, 4 Bronze Stars, and was nominated for the Medal of Honor three separate times. He was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.

Black Conservatives Blast Al Sharpton Protesters in DC 8/28

Black conservatives confront Al Sharpton supporters who are carrying signs accusing the Tea Party of racism. One of the conservatives pointed out that it is the liberals who are supporting the abortions of millions of black babies.

The Runaway Slave movie crews were at Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor Rally" and at Al Sharpton's "Reclaiming the Dream March" on Aug 28th. As the two ideologies clashed in DC, our movie crews were on the scene. In this raw footage, shot near the future MLK memorial site, Black Conservatives leaving the "Restoring Honor" rally encounter Sharpton's protestors who were holding signs claiming "Tea Party Racism." This is just one of debates that we captured after the rally had ended.

You can partner with us as we expose the ravages of progressivism and run harder from the slavery of tyranny!

Jews Killed Where Obama Demanded Removal of Checkpoints

Jews killed where Obama demanded removal of checkpoints

Anti-terror barriers credited with stopping scores of attacks


August 31, 2010


Today's deadly terror attack that killed four people took place on a road where the Israeli government removed staffed anti-terror checkpoints in line with requests from the Obama administration, WND has learned.

As President Obama was preparing for a Washington summit with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders, Palestinian terrorists today carried out a shooting attack, killing two Jewish men and two women, one of whom was pregnant.

The attack took place in the West Bank just south of the entrance to Kiryat Arba, near the historic biblical city of Hebron.

Israeli security officials say the terrorist shooting was a coordinated ambush.

Officially, Hamas took responsibility for the terror attack, in which gunmen opened fire at point-blank range on a car carrying the four Israeli civilians.

Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman for Hamas, confirmed to WND his group was behind the attack.

Abu-Ubaida, a spokesman for Hamas' Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, stated today's shooting was "a link in a chain-series of attacks - some have been executed, and others will follow."

The attack took place in the same general area where a gunman opened fire on an Israeli police vehicle just outside Hebron in June. A police officer was killed and two others were wounded in that shooting attack. Israeli security officials say the shooting was a planned ambush similar to today's attack.

Both incidents took place on Route 60, a West Bank road used by Israeli and Palestinian drivers and patrolled by Israel.

In the last year, the Israeli government removed 19 staffed checkpoints in the West Bank. At least 15 of the removed barriers are in the vicinity of Hebron.

A spokeperson for the Israel Defense Forces confirmed to WND that in the last year and a half, all roadblocks have been removed from Route 60.

The checkpoints were dismantled in line with demands from the Palestinian Authority that were passed on to Israel by the Obama administration.

George Mitchell, the White House envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, specifically requested that Israel remove roadblocks and checkpoints as a confidence-building gesture to restart talks with the PA, Israeli officials told WND.

Anti-terror roadblocks and checkpoints impede Palestinian movement, but have been credited with stopping scores of attacks.

Michael Ben-Ari, a Knesset member from Israel's National Union party, slammed the dismantlement of the checkpoints. "The writing was on the wall. Opening roadblocks encourages terror and gives a free hand to terrorists," he said.

Preliminary police reports here show the gunmen today approached the Israeli vehicle and shot the victims multiple times at point-blank range.

The Magen David Adom ambulance authority reported the victims were two men ages 25 and 40 and two women, also ages 25 and 40, one of whom was pregnant.

The victims were all residents of Beit Hagai, a Jewish community in the southern Hebron Hills.

Paramedic Guy Ronen described the shooting scene to the Jerusalem Post: "When we arrived on the scene, all four doors of the car were open and four bodies were strewn on the road. We saw that the vital organs had been struck by a very large number of bullets, and that there was no chance of saving their lives."
"It was a very difficult scene. We had learned to forget scenes like this in recent years," Ronen added.

State Department spokesman Philip Crowley, meanwhile, commented on the terrorist attack, stating: "We are cognizant that there could be external events that can have an impact on the environment. We also are cognizant that there may well be actors in the region who are deliberately making these kinds of attacks in order to try to sabotage the process."

The attack occurred just before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plane landed in Washington, where the Israeli leader is set to begin direct negotiations with PA President Mahmoud Abbas. The negotiations are aimed at creating a Palestinian state.

Members of Netanyahu's entourage said the prime minister was briefed on the events and that he instructed Israel's security agencies to prepare for the possibility of further attacks aimed at disrupting the Washington summit.

They killed 5 people - one of them unborn.

More blood on Obama's hands. He is getting our troops killed too.

Everything Obama touches goes down the toilet...pray for the Israeli people.

Charles Krauthammer on Obama’s Iraq Speech: “It Was Both Flat and Odd”

Charles Krauthammer on Obama’s Iraq Speech: “It Was Both Flat and Odd”


Obama Shows No "Vision" Of America's Role In World "I thought the speech was both flat and odd," Charles Krauthammer said about President Obama's address on Iraq. "The economic stuff [in the speech], I think, really shows that his heart is not in these missions abroad, but is in changing America at home," Krauthammer said.


Wild Thing's comment........

Krauthammer is right.

Obama was like a zombie. But as the dictator he is........... "I declare that Iraqi Freedom is over."

Obama's Department of Justice Ditches Patriotic Red White and Blue For Black Background and Check Out The Quote!

Department of Justice ditches red, white and blue stars and stripes

Bruce Cunningham

American Thinker

Well, how interesting! It seems the U.S. Department of Justice has changed its website. Gone are the colorful red, white and blue U.S. flag decorations on the page,


replaced by stark black and white.

And at the top of the page, is a rather interesting quote:

"The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people."

Catchy, huh? Just one tiny little (too small to be relevant obviously) point -- the quote is from C. Wilfred Jenks, who in the 1930's was a leading proponent of the "international law" movement, which had as its goal to impose a global common law and which backed ‘global workers' rights.'

Call it Marxism, call it Progressivism, call it Socialism -- under any of those names it definitely makes the DOJ look corrupt in their sleek, new black website with Marxist accessories to match.

See for yourself:

How very interesting that 'they' couldn't find a nice quote from one of our Founders. People, we have lost our Republic. We need to get it back ASAP.


Justice Loses Its Stars and Stripes

American Spectator

What's black and white and "red" all over? The Department of Justice's newly designed website. Gone are the standard red, white, and blue motifs, replaced by an all-black backdrop. And prominently placed on virtually every page of the site is a quote credited to a man who facilitated a greater role for socialists and communists at the U.N., and the global "workers rights movement."

The redesigned website was launched without fanfare, but was noticed internally by several career lawyers, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of political reprisals.

"We were told that the media team and the senior leadership that signed off on the design thought that the patriotic shtick from the Ashcroft days was a bit much for an agency that isn't supposed to be political," says a DOJ lawyer, who inquired about the redesign. "It was a real effort not to laugh at that."

Prominent now on the site are links to " en Español" and the "The Recovery Act and the Department of Justice."

But most jarring is the quote that is appears on virtually every page of the website. "The common law is the will of mankind issuing from the life of the people," which, some DOJ staff say, is tied to a man who ushered in the socialist and communist theories that now permeate the United Nations.

Another DOJ lawyer says, "It's taken from an inscription along one of the outer walls of the department ["The common law derives from the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people, framed by mutual confidence, and sanctioned by the light of reason"], but no one is sure where the quote came from."

The quotes that ring the building were selected during the construction process back in the administration of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Some attorneys believed the quote is pulled or adapted from the writing of Sir William Blackstone, the 18th Century British jurist, who wrote the Commentaries on the Laws of England, which influenced not only British law, but also the American constitutional and legal system.

But other Department of Justice employees say the quote originates from British lawyer, C. Wilfred Jenks, who back in the late 1930s and after World War II was a leading figure in the "international law" movement, which sought to impose a global, common law, and advocated for global workers rights. Jenks was a long-time member of the United Nation's International Labor Organization, and author of a number of globalist tracts, including a set of essays published back in 1958, entitled The Common Law of Mankind.

Most telling: Jenks, as director of the ILO is credited with putting in place the first Soviet senior member of the UN organization, and also with creating an environment that allowed the ILO to give "observer status" to the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and to issue anti-Israeli statements, which precipitated efforts by the U.S. Congress to withdraw U.S. membership from the ILO. The U.S. actually did withdraw in the mid-1970s due to the organization's leftist leanings.

"It was Jenks's efforts that helped make the ILO a tool of the socialist and communist movement," says one of the DOJ lawyers. "We used to joke about how fitting it was that this was Janet Reno's favorite quote to use in speeches, and now the Obama folks think it encapsulates out department's mission."

Suggestions to highlight quotes from the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights or quotes from the Founders, the Federalist Papers or prominent American jurists were quickly shot down by the Department of Justice's media and new media teams, according to DOJ sources familiar with the design process, and the White House communications shop was given input to the overall design as well.


Wild Thing's comment.......

The Obama and the currant DOJ are the enemy of the American people. Their assault on our founding and traditions never end.

From looking at some of the blog posts it shows the changes were made at the DOJ website October 2009. I bet it was on their to do list even before Obama was sworn in.
