...Helping to make the world safer for radical Islam
Since the inauguration, Obama has been detailing his intentions to withdraw from Iraq and more recently, Afghanistan. A strategically foolish move that has provided our enemies a timetable on our withdrawal that will give them free reign. A self serving move, bordering on treason, whereby Obama has turned ending these conflicts as a political move, jeopardizing our troops and our country in order to try to stay in power.
Now many fear an increase in violence, growing Iranian influence and political turmoil after. Iraq is defenseless in the face of the threats by the neighboring countries, with no air force to speak of and systemic intelligence shortcomings on all tactical and operational levels. Despite years of promises of better government services, most of the country gets by on a few hours of electricity a day; clearly our work is not yet done there on many, many levels. The small amount of troops Obama proposed to remain are not sufficient to prevent insurgent threats, only enough to address any aftermath. Our embassy there will remain venerable to attack, putting more lives at risk. More attacks by al-Qaida are likely to happen," said Dhia Abdullah, a Shiite from eastern Baghdad. "The security elements are not loyal to Iraq but to parties and militias therefore the security situation will be very bad after the withdrawal."
Talks to keep U.S. troops in Iraq ran aground over Iraqi opposition to giving American troops legal immunity that would shield them from Iraqi prosecution. Many Iraqi lawmakers were hesitant to grant immunity for fear of a backlash from constituents. This "roadblock" was used as an excuse for the Obama administration's expedited withdrawal from Iraq. There was no real effort to come to a mutually desirable decision; a retreat from Iraq was simply a fulfillment of one of Obama's main campaign promises to end the conflict; and it will be a disaster.
The impression of the U.S. increasingly is seen as weak by our enemies. Iranian President Ahmadinejad said that Tehran has "a very good relationship" with Iraq's government that will continue to grow. "We have deepened our ties day by day," said Ahmadinejad. Obama's failure to back the 2009 Iran uprising that protested the rigged election of President Ahmadinejad left this dangerous man in power. It makes a sane person wonder whose side our president is on.
Other Obama administration decisions have betrayed old allies; taking us from dealing with the enemy we knew, to now having to deal with the enemy that we do not. Further missteps and miscalculations from this administration have left the world a much less safe place. Many of Gadhafi's weapons remain at large, stockpiles could remain a threat long after his death, as some are feared to have been sent to Darfur rebels, al-Qaida in North Africa and other militants. Assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns have already passed across Libya's porous borders. Missing shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles are capable of bringing down commercial airliners. No one is sure how many of the arsenal of 20,000 are now in "rebel" hands. More than forty civilian aircraft have been hit by these portable surface-to-air missiles since 1975. A missile launcher capable of firing up to five projectiles at once was recently smuggled into the Gaza Strip and originated in Libya.
What with Tunisia, Egypt and Libya headed toward Islamic rule, Ahmadinejad's dream of an Islamic Caliphate and belief in the return of the 12th Imam, a global nightmare is moving closer to becoming a reality (see post on the 12th Imam in R&R post from 2/28/10). Intel sources now claim that Iran already is armed with a nuclear weapon; the more likely method of deployment being that of an EMP attack (see R&R post here from 8/15/09 on Electro-Magnetic Pulse). In an article titled, "Electronics to Determine Fate of Future Wars," an Iranian Military journal explains how an EMP attack on America's electronic infrastructure, caused by the detonation of a nuclear weapon high above the U.S., would bring the country to its knees. "Once you confuse the enemy communication network you can also disrupt the work of the enemy command- and decision-making center."
The killing of the thirteen of our troops in Afghanistan this week, was the deadliest ground attack on coalition forces in months. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the Kabul attack; an action claiming victory now with the U.S. in retreat. Expect more of the same; with Obama's "leadership from behind" and Carteresque philosophy, our country has gone from being the defender of freedom to being viewed as weak and ineffectual. This will be Obama's shameful legacy; a legacy that will be ended with his defeat in 2012, God willing. The survival of America and Western Civilization depends on it.
Below are 45 goals of the Communist Left's plan to destroy America, taken from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen, a former FBI agent written in 1958. These goals are essentially the doctrine of those of the hard Left wing of this country. The most disturbing thing is that most of these goals have been or are close to being achieved. The depraved Left has been working secretly to subvert America and it's Constitution. With Obama now in power, their "progress" to destroy our country has been accelerated. Obama's calls for "change" and for "transforming America" now are seen for what they truly are: the Left's cry for the destruction of America.
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

The Wall Street protesters gone wild have for the most part been devoid of any intelligible, coherent message, let alone any rational means of remedy. Yet, there have been a few legitimate complaints. Record unemployment and stagnant middle class wages, do warrant attention. What these protests will ever or could ever achieve is debatable as their anger is misplaced. It has been the Obama administration's polices that have drastically worsened the nation's economy, worsened unemployment and have enabled Wall Street corruption. Many of Obama’s senior advisers have ties with Wall Street and Obama was the largest recipient of Wall Street donations. Obama has received more financially support from Wall Street than all of the GOP presidential candidates put together, in fact, Obama has received more Wall Street money than any other politician in the last 20 years. In spite of all the protesting, he is not about to give that up; prior to announcing his re-election campaign, Obama met with over two dozen Wall Street executives, many of them previous donors, in the White House’s Blue Room. Mort Zuckerman, Democrat and NY based real estate/ newspaper mogul when asked about the Wall Street mob, said that "the door to it was opened by the Obama administration, going after the 'millionaires and billionaires' as if everybody is a millionaire and a billionaire and they didn't earn it. . . . To fan that flame of populist anger I think is very divisive and very dangerous for this country." However, Obama's strategy to divide the nation via this "movement" will fail.
The tea party movement has tapped into the political process and and is having a real impact on policy decisions in Washington. Some Democrats have supported the Wall Street movement, a shortsighted move at best. The Wall Street mob movement has now being endorsed and/ or supported by the American Nazi Party, Hamas, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (which has been linked to numerous terror groups), Iran's Ayatollah and supreme leader Ayatollah (who said that the demonstrations will ultimately bring down West), among other America haters. Hard to envision any reasoned American getting behind any politician or party supporting such subversives.
Also present (and documented) at these protests, pro-Marxist signs, Anti-Semitic rants, protesters singing ‘F*** the U.S.A,’ the calls for destruction of capitalism and the collapse of America; again, not an agenda that is going to attract any rational voters. But the Left is not encumbered by reason or common sense, never have, really. Slander, race-baiting and mob rule tactics are the sort of political tactics the Left fancies. A White House spokesman announced that Obama intends to make sure that the "interests of 99 percent of Americans are well represented," '99 percent' being a divisive slogan used to separate the classes. Anything to divert attention from Solendra's half billion dollar debacle, the Fast and Furious scandal and Obama's other failures.
So, now with Obama stupidly showing his true ideology by deciding to turn the anger expressed by the lunatic fringe into a central tenet of his reelection strategy against Republicans, his defeat is now sealed. Way to go Barry.

At the annual Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner in Washington, Obama once again demonstrated that there are no depths he will not stoop to in order to smear and slander his opponents. To a cheering crowd of Gays and Lesbians, Obama propagated the widely held myth of the booing of the Gay soldier at the recent Republican debate in Orlando. At that debate, soldier Stephen Hill stood and introduced himself as a Gay soldier in the U.S. military; No boos. Nothing. It was not until Hill asked candidate Santorum the question; "Do you plan to circumvent the progress that has been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?” that there was some booing. Not in response to the soldier's sexual orientation, but in regards to the change in the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. That was it; not hateful, as Obama and those on the Left would have you believe, but in response to the policy change.
Need proof? See the video of Mark Levin's take on the big lie with the recording of Hill's question and you can hear for yourself (skip to 2:10 for that):
So, it looks like we will see the Obama campaign resorting to any tactic, no matter how low, no matter how divisive. So much for Obama bringing the nation together; besides, he can't exactly run on his record. Actually, he never really could run on his record, could he? Instead, expect to hear more in the vein of what Obama once said at a fundraiser in San Francisco:
'They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.' Oh, and they hate the Gays. Of course, don't forget that one.

Poverty by design has been an appalling tactic of the Left in order to expand their base and stay in power, no matter the cost to American society. This year the US Census Bureau reported 46.2 million Americans are now living below the official poverty line, up from 44 million in 2010; an increase of 2.2 million Americans in just one year. In California, total funding for K‑12 education is projected to be $63.8 billion in 2011‑12. California 2010 average of $9,863 per student ranks 23rd among U.S. states in per-pupil spending on public education, below the national average of $10,259. The more money thrown at it, the worse it gets; Of 30 comparable countries, the United States ranks near the bottom. ... 2010, For instance, math - Finland is first, followed by South Korea, and the United States is number 25. Is spending per student a factor? No; $129,000 from K through 12. The other countries average $95,000. Everything the government touches turns to crap (with the incompetent decision of the $535 million government-backed loans to Solyndra being the latest example) and education is no exception. With public education, teachers, for the most part, are not paid on merit, but tenure. Any enterprise that is able to exist without competition and with performance of it's workers not ranked or monitored, simply cannot thrive, let alone improve it's product.
The Left's single most focus as far as education is the support and expansion of the teacher's unions. Teachers unions contribute 95 percent of their funds to Democrats, In 2008, unions spent $74.5 million in campaign contributions, with $68.3 million going to the Democratic Party. While expanding their numbers on every level; local, county, state and federal, they are able to expand their influence via the vast sums of cash from teacher's unions.
The idea that a lack of education is the overriding cause of poverty; every student is taught that by not graduating from high school, the chance of succeeding in life is diminished considerably. What is not mentioned and taught is that having a baby outside of marriage is just as much a determinant of living a life of poverty. Any talk of heterosexual marriage being the better choice is almost hate speech; we must spare "feelings," no matter how factually incorrect. Unwed childbearing has risen from 6.3 percent of all births in 1964, when President Lyndon Johnson launched the War on Poverty, to more than 40 percent today. Welfare enabled and encouraged this behavior and today, single-parent families with children are six times more likely to be poor than are married couples with kids. Those on welfare overwhelming vote Democrat and what this has bred is a forever expanding welfare state by design. A very sick method of expanding party ranks, but it works like a charm; for what fool that is collecting welfare would vote against the welfare party?
So, traditional marriage is not encouraged and single motherhood is now embraced as a choice that is just as noble, just as desirable as traditional marriage. Along those same lines, differences between males and females are discounted; marriages between two mommies or two daddies. What is now taught in our schools is that child born to a marriage between a man and a woman is no longer the norm, let along the best choice. Single motherhood, whoever, whatever all are equal; men are necessary for conception, but otherwise unnecessary. The public school system is brainwashing our children by selective censoring information and by peddling moral relativism. So, it's screw the numbers, screw the statistics and screw society. If you have children in the public school system, beware. Better yet, get them out.

Dear Father E:
I attended noon mass today and was happy when during the start of your sermon, you began to address 9/11. I was holding my breath a bit as the theme of the passages read prior concerned forgiveness. Essentially your sermon urged that we Catholic Christians ought to forgive the terrorist perpetrators. Then, it would follow, that we also should offer love and forgiveness to any who wish to destroy our country, our society and to those who wish to destroy Christianity, including any others that do not follow and practice their "religion". It was all I could do during your sermon not to get up and walk out. There was one thing that I stayed for; I did have to go up after mass and look at the church's display of the names of the nearly 3,000 souls lost that day. Where were the names of the 19 terrorist that committed those hideous acts? Why were they not included? Where was your forgiveness there?
This "feel-good" take on Christian forgiveness undermines the moral foundations of this great country, whose creation was based on Judea-Christian values. This doctrine turns the true meaning of Christian forgiveness on it's head. This latest take on Christian forgiveness amorally advances the notion that we as Christian and Americans will forgive any deplorable, murderous act; no matter how heinous. Is forgiveness not contingent on the transgressor first asking for forgiveness? Even Almighty God's forgiveness is given only if the sinner repents. As far as myself, or anyone else "forgiving" the terrorist jihadists for their acts on 9/11; that in itself is a particularly abhorrent notion. Forgiveness can only be given to the sinner from those that he directly wronged and sinned against. Thus, only those that were so savagely murdered that day are the only ones who can forgive their murderers. The following passage, I believe, more accurately represents our faith and our God's stand on forgiveness: Luke 17:3-4: "And if your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if seven times of the day he sins against you, and seven times of the day turns to you saying, I repent, you shall forgive him."
The Islamist terrorists comprise roughly 10% of the one billion Muslims world wide, or upwards of 100 million people who wish to bring about a global caliphate and destroy us and our way of life. The Islamists practice a faith or some twisted version of a faith whose "god" celebrates and rewards murder, rape, pedophilia and genocide. In my mind it is a religion more closely aligned with that of the devil. In short, I believe that to offer love and forgiveness to the terrorist's acts of 9/11 is to offer that same love and forgiveness to Satan himself. Funny, I don't remember ever hearing a sermon on that. Maybe next week; who knows. Even if, I'm not sure that I will be back again to hear it.

Sadly, none to be exact. The most recent was of course the Iranian revolution of 1979. Demonstration for the Shah of Iran began in January of 1978, with demonstration and strikes paralyzing the country for months, not unlike what has been transpiring in Egypt. President Carter's lack of support of the Shah when Khomeni deposed him, was the single most influencing factor that led to the rise of radical fundamentalist Islam. Today with Obama unfortunately, we have Carter 2.0.
During the recent revolts of 2009; Obama chose not to "mettle;" that lack of leadership no doubt contributed to the failure of that movement to oust Ahmadinejad and Islamic rule. Why Obama chose to now support the protesters in Egypt is any one's guess. Mubarak and his predecessor Anwar Sadat help keep peace in the region and recognized Israel as a state. We recently also saw the Obama administration's obsession with Israel's building additional housing in Jerusalem, while did nothing as Iran sought nukes. Much easier to stab America's allies in the back than it is to stand up to it's enemies.
The situation in Egypt continues to be a confusing one; Mubarak appears to be ready to step down and hand over rule to Egypt's military; something that presently is outside of Egypt's constitution. Obama is full of himself using phrases like "Egypt's transformation" and "the people calling for change." Gee, where have we heard those before?
The problem is that Egypt, as with most all countries in the Middle East, has only known dictatorships and Islamic rule. If Egypt's military is to take over power from Mubarak, it can only last so long. Radical Islam is ready to pounce and is biding it's time. The Muslim Brotherhood has been entrenched in Egypt since it's inception there in 1928, clearly they are in no hurry. The odds favoring Egypt becoming a western style democracy are not good; if we can somehow keep Egypt from becoming another Lebanon or Gaza, it will be no small miracle for the U.S. and Israel.

Riots and protest in Egypt have now gone on for one week, anarchy reigns and the protests have become increasingly anti-American as well as anti-Israel. After continuing to support the Egyptian dictator for 30 years, along with support of their military with 1.3 billion dollars per year; the relative calm in the region is in jeopardy. Double digit inflation, food shortages, high unemployment have led to Egypt's present tenuous situation and it's government's implosion. Mubarak should have taken steps to quell public discord years ago; after 30 years of Mubarak's rule, the Egyptian people have had enough and there is no going back; so Mubarak is finished. And where was the US State Department for the past 30 years?
The situation is dire for the West; Egypt has been a moderate ally in the region; a vital necessity in order to keep the transport of the world's oil supply through the Suez Canal secure. Meanwhile, world oil prices are skyrocketing. Egypt's practice of preventing the flow of so-called Palestinians over their border with Gaza is has fallen, terrorist prisoners have already escaped into Gaza and God knows what else; a terrible development for Israel.
Egypt's army is the only somewhat stabilizing element in the country; not keeping order, but waiting out the situation. There is no moderate or secular movements that has been allowed to foster in in Mubarak's Egypt; none to step up to fill the power vacuum that now exists. Islamist institutions such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas are the only ones capable of replacing failed government institutions. The leftist media has whitewashed the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a brutal Islamic supremacist group who were chiefly responsible for the assassination of Anwar Sadat. That as well as the terror attack in Luxor on Nov. 17, 1997, when six men dressed in black attacked and killed sixty-two tourists, including children. The Muslim Brotherhood has now rallied behind retired diplomat Mohamed ElBaradei to lead possible talks with the army on organizing a handover of power to a national unity coalition.
Expect Egypt like Lebanon to move towards Islamist governments that support terror; Jordan could be next in line. Israel has for now keep silent as it' situation is becoming more dire as pro western Middle East countries are failing. According to the Daily Telegraph, the Obama administration has "secretly backed" figures behind the Egyptian uprising who for three years have been planning a “regime change.” Why such a gamble when the eventual outcome could lead to an Islamic government? This from a President who preferred not to "meddle" during last years Iranian uprising challenging the legitimacy of Iran's Islamic system of rule.
Egypt's opposition leader ElBaradei, who until recently had been under house arrest, now has announced that he had been given a mandate to make contact with the army and build a new government in Egypt. Not surprisingly, the Muslim Brotherhood has announced that they now support ElBardei. The situation here is eerily close to what we faced with the fall of the Shaw of Iran under Carter.
Islam is based upon the Trilogy—Koran, Sira and Hadith. Islam is a political ideology dividing the world into Muslims and unbelievers, kafirs. In spite of what George W. Bush and others may believe; most of the people of the Middle East are not "yearning" for democracy. There is a semblance of democracy in Iraq, but likely will last only as long as our troops remain. The Palestinians in Gaza, when given the choice voted in Hamas, Lebanon is now controlled by Hezbollah and Egypt's odds are that will follow the same path. At least with Mubarak, the devil we knew was better than the possible alternative. The Muslim Brotherhood is now closer to power with the backing of ElBardei. The Brotherhood's slogan? "Islam is the solution." The Muslim Brotherhood spawned Hamas; if they are now to control Egypt, why should we expect the result to be anything more favorable? Meaning, Egypt is now likely to become an authoritarian military regime, or a Radical Islamist regime. Egypt's change in leadership could mean an end to Egypt's peace treaty with Israel as well as a new phase in the United States' war against the jihadists.

Obama will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research in his State of the Union address Tuesday, just as his critics have prematurely praise his shift towards the "middle." Also, Obama's poll numbers have improved, likely due to his recent speech in Tuscon along with his calling for "significant" budget cuts.
What this soon to be announced increased spending is reported to include initiatives aimed at building the renewable-energy sector, rebuilding roads and to restructure the No Child Left Behind program. Billions to be spent programs that have already received billions from the last $800 million dollars stimulus. Who said that Keynesian Economics was dead? So much for Obama's shift to the middle.
Obama has now appointed crony capitalist and job outsourcer GE Chief Executive Jeffrey Immelt to lead a new President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Obama's alleged pivot toward competitiveness is merely cover for bigger government and further spending. Obama's proposal to reduce the budget deficit while simultaneously pushing for what essentially is yet another stimulus package would be laughable if it wasn't so insulting. Yes, it's business as usual in the Obama administration; defy the will of the American people, the use of Keynesian economics and follow that Cloward and Piven strategy.
Puzzling is the rise of Obama's poll numbers; according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, his approval rating has risen to 53%. With Rasmussen's latest daily Presidential Tracking Poll, 30% strongly approve of the job Obama is doing, while 36% strongly disapprove. Conflicting results, to be sure.
One disturbing development is that, according to Gallup, during the quarter ended Jan. 19, Obama averaged 46.0 percent job approval. Though still low in an absolute sense, this marks the first time his approval rating has improved from one quarter to the next, granted a small improvement. Of the three most recent presidents with approval ratings most similar to Obama’s at this point in their presidency, the two whose ratings improved in the third year, Reagan and Clinton were re-elected. Carter whose ratings decreased lost his reelection.
Up until now the idea of Obama winning a second term seemed a remote possibility; not anymore. The American people have to wake up to the fact that their president is a leftist ideologue and that Obama's supposed move to the center is merely part of a strategy to win his next election. I'd like to think that the American people are smarter than to be taken in by this big phony; perhaps not. Findings from that NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll say that 40% of respondents believe that Obama is a moderate, 11% of Americans consider Obama to be a conservative. Obama? On what planet is Obama a moderate, let alone a conservative? If this is how the American voters view things, we may be doomed to a hellish second term. If so, after eight years of Obama rule, we will not recognize our country; it will have been irreversibly "transformed" and it will be bye bye U.S. Constitution and hello Communist Manifesto.

Of all the horror of the murderous rampage of January 7 in Arizona, the most sickening and heart-wrenching is the murder of a nine year old girl, Christina Taylor Green. It is incomprehensible how her family is dealing with their loss as well as they are. What we have learned from Christina's mother's statement is what a remarkable young girl the world has lost. From being the only girl on her Little League baseball team, The Pirates, to her being elected to her elementary school's student council. Her interest in things political led to her attending with a neighbor the "Congress on Your Corner" event outside a Tucson Safeway on Saturday to meet Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona. “She was a good speaker. I could have easily seen her as a politician,” her dad told the Arizona Star.
Roxanna Green said that her daughter was “very interested in government, she was interested in her community, how she could help her community.”
“They tried to save her but she just couldn’t make it…I saw her right after that. I spent a lot of time with her, and I said goodbye to her.”
Christina was featured in a book called “Faces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11.” Her parents said that 9/11/2001 being the day of her birth gave Christina an interest in politics. Christina was in fact proud of the fact that she was born on 9/11 and was a patriotic kid, often leaving the house wearing red, white and blue.
'She was a beautiful girl and so intelligent and her light shines on all of us today and forever, and I just have it in my heart that my angel is with my grandmother and my mum in heaven,' said her mother Roxanna Green. 'I'm so proud of her. I'm still proud of her today. I know that she's going to do great things in heaven. She's my angel.'
All of it very hard to grasp and even harder for most of us to make sense of; thankfully it seems that her family through their Catholic faith, at least in some ways have.
Christina can also, I believe, still do great things here on Earth. Her senseless murder must be an event that will empower us all to take any and all steps to seek psychiatric help for any soul we encounter in our live that are sick, troubled and a potential danger to themselves and others.
Unfortunately what we are seeing is political bomb throwing, primarily from the left, accusing talk radio, Sarah Palin's blog, the Tea Party; you name it. Perhaps the sickest of all is a Democrat group calling itself 21st Century Democrats that is using the massacre for political fund raising. Enough already.
The psychotically damaged shooter, Jared Loughner was if anything, a crazed leftist. His favorite books included Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto; hardly books on any conservative reading list.
Each of us, as members in this society need to actively seek help for those that we encounter in our personal and professional lives who we believe are in need of psychiatric help. People like Loughner, Mark David Chapman, the Virgina Tech killer, Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz and the like don't just happen in a vacuum. There were people in these killers' lives who KNEW that these individuals were potential threats, yet did nothing. E-mails sent by a classmate of Loughner prior to the Tuscon massacre depict Loughner as potentially violent. "Hopefully he will be out of class very soon and not come back with an automatic weapon," the student wrote June 1, 2010, which was the first day of class. Subsequent e-mails raised similar concerns about Loughner. Stopping potential killers before they kill, is about our society's only option.
In addition we need to see increased security for our judges, our politicians like Gabrielle Giffords as well as future ones like Christina Taylor Green.

Following the attacks of September 11, the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 was formed. What was mandated was that 100% of all cargo on passenger jets were to be screened for explosives by 2010. Only 20% of the nine billion pounds of cargo is presently being screened by the TSA; in flights that originate from other countries, it's another story.
Only four hours before an international flight arrives at it's US destination does the TSA receives the list of that plane's cargo contents; how reliable that information received from another country may be is anyone's guess. Then a computer, not a TSA employee makes the determination as to which if any package is suspect. One problem, that package is already on the plane; at this point it is obviously a bit too late. Yet another lapse; cargo workers are seldom required to pass through any security searches prior to beginning their shift.
It is clear that just about any terrorist could get a bomb on virtually any flight via a checked bag. It is only a matter of time until this happens unless Homeland Security wakes up; don't hold your breath on that one. Why there has not been a successful terrorist act involving passenger baggage remains a mystery; but we cannot expect this gigantic security loophole to be not be exploited by our enemy for long.
TSA and Homeland Security operate in a knee-jerk fashion; a bomb found in shoes, we are then required to take our shoes off. Liquid explosives are found in another terror attempt and we are limited to four oz. bottles (why four oz, who knows, why any?). Printer cartridges were discovered to be used to carry explosives, now ink cartridges are banned. What if the next plot involves a cell phone? Can you imagine the TSA banning those? Well, from past history, that is indeed what they would do; imagine that nightmare. All of this innane banning of specific items solves nothing; the terrorists simply try another. Bin Laden must be laughing his skinny terrorist ass off.
Any government agency is not as efficient nor effective as one run by the private sector. Have the TSA concentrate only on cargo, period; the TSA cannot multi-task, that is abundantly clear. Revamp their procedures and reorganize their entire system. Leave the baggage to the TSA and leave the passengers to the airlines. Airlines know their frequent fliers for one, they for one are less of a risk (along with grannies, children and Nuns). The airline know which of their passengers have paid in cash, booked a one way flight, checked no bags, etc, the TSA staff is not privy to any of that information. Airlines also have a vested interest in securing their planes and would have more ability to profile any potential threat vs. a government agency that would be obsessed with political correctness. Just look to the Israeli model, one that has been a success for decades.
What with the news about the potential health dangers of the TSA's naked body scanners, findings that TSA frisks may groom children to cooperate with sex predators and other issues,it is clear, the present system is ineffective, obtrusive and makes flying more, not less dangerous. Since it's inception, the TSA has not caught a single terrorist, nor prevented any terror plot; that work has been done by brave and perceptive passengers. With the present administration unable to even name it's enemy, don't expect any meaningful changes for now; another reason for regime change in 2012. Our lives depend on it.

Nancy Pelosi announced that she will be seeking a run for minority leader after the Republicans won control of the House. In a letter to her supporters she wrote: "Our work is far from finished. As a result of Tuesday’s election, the role of Democrats in the 112th Congress will change, but our commitment to serving the American people will not. We have no intention of allowing our great achievements to be rolled back. It is my hope that we can work in a bipartisan way to create jobs and strengthen the middle class." What "people" does she think that she is serving? Her approval rating in a CBS poll stands at pitiful 11 percent. The policies she has supported have decimated her party and most see her as a pathetic failure of a politician not to mention, a truly embarrassing pick for first woman Speaker of the House. The Republican National Committee has now replaced the enormous sign on the front of it's DC building from "Fire Pelosi!" to "Hire Pelosi!" Her "leadership" has done more damage to the Democratic Party than the Republicans ever dreamed of accomplishing. Her running for minority leader only verifies what I have always known; the poor thing is a certifiable dimwit.
Harry Reid; also seems disconnected from reality. His statement after somehow keeping his Senate seat said: "We are now starting to see things beginning to turn around as the measures we have taken continue to work. I remain convinced that by coming together Nevada’s future still is as bright as it has ever been." What in the hell is he talking about? Nevada's “actual” unemployment rate in the third quarter of 2010 increased to 22.3 percent! Reid's blind ideological support for policies have made Nevada a disaster and the United States a debtor nation of unimaginable proportions. He and his party have shackled our economy with trillions of dollars in debt for programs that are only a boon to himself and his cronies.
Saving the worst for last is Obama; our train wreak of a president. Following the mid-term election he said: "No one party will be able to dictate where we go from here." He is right about that; his "mandate" is over and his dictatorial method of governance is now mercifully ended.
On health care: "If Republicans have some ideas" for cutting costs of health care or making other changes in the bill, he said he would be glad to take a look. This jackass has repeatedly ignored and/ or dismissed all Republican proposals, most notably, the Roadmap for America's Future from Rep. Paul Ryan. And let us not forget the health care summit in Baltimore where Obama summarily rejected all proposals from the other side of the aisle.
Obama's reasoning for the Republican election tidal wave? "We did a poor job of explaining what we were trying to do." This irrational drivel from the man that gave 54 mind-numbing speeches in a failed effort to sell the American people on his 2,309 page healthcare monstrosity.
What are we to expect now? With the many successes of the mid-term elections now behind us, we have won the battle, but the war still rages. We still have the above mentioned ideologues in power, albeit diminished. They still fully intend to "transform" America by running it off the Socialist cliff. Their agenda blinds them to reality; in their minds, it is the American people that just don't get it. Our rejection of them and their policies only proves to them how stupid we really are. You see, for Reid, Pelosi and Obama, denial truly is just a river in Egypt.

Obama and the Left both here in America and abroad have caved in to, bowed and scraped and have appeased radical Islam to such an extent it has become their norm rather than the isolated incident. The worst case of late is the Obama administration's obscene lack of a strong, appropriate response to the people of Iran's mass pro-democracy demonstrations. In what was the bravest example in recent memory of a nations people's attempt to a brutal, fanatical and totalitarian regime. Perhaps the Obama administration was simply once again, merely classless; though the more likely reason would be a "Carteresqe" response to thugs and terrorists; appeasing you enemies coupled with inaction and empty threats. Not only has this method been proven throughout history as ineffective, it also casts the appeaser as weak, incompetent and worst of all an easy target.
As far as the left, one only needs to look to NPR's buffoonish response to one of it's host/ journalists, Juan Williams. Mr. Williams made a rather innocuous statement in regards to Muslims and radical Islam. Aside from NPR's well known disapproval of it's staff working as contributors to Fox News, what seemed to have been the tipping point here was the stink raised by CAIR the front group for radical Isalm that masquerades as a Muslim advocacy non-profit (The good news here is that CAIR's involvement in Williams' firing may be violation of Foreign Agents Registration Act). Here is a glaring example of the Left's automatically siding with America's enemies regardless of outcome or how it may be perceived.
Obama and the Left have much in common with radical Islam; an unholy alliance that will bring only backfire on these useful idiots. Examples of the radical Left's siding with America and the free world's enemies abound: supporting Communism during the cold war, Naom Chomsky's support of Hezbollah, Cindy Sheehan and her solidarity of support to the Taliban, Jimmy Carter embracing terrorists in Gaza, "activists" supporting the Flotillas in Gaza, to name but a few.
Why support and admire your enemies that would gladly behead you? Because the left hates America just as much as our enemies do. The left has suicidal obsession with adversary cultures and totalitarian regimes. The radical Left's ultimate goal is to create a Leftist utopia; both they and radical Islam hate the West and all it represents. This is their common bond; their enemy is essentially the same; only one has a socialist vision, the other, one of a global Islamist state. The both hate free democracies and they share the common goal; to create global destruction and build anew from those ashes (see the Cloward and Piven Strategy). A bit like "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" only the left often acts on emotion rather than in a more reasoned way.
If we Americans loose this nation to the Left and Obama's twisted Marxist vision; who then wins? Will it be the radical Left or the radical Islamists? This is a question that Left hasn't pondered, let alone answer; this it seems to be their delusional, suicidal mission's Achilles heel. Once the joint mission of the West's destruction is achieved, the Left's role as the useful idiot is eventually culminated and is played out. Here, the left meets it's nemesis: just as they conquer their foe; Democracy and Capitalism, they will then meet their own destruction when their "ally" finally turns on them. The pacifistic left has never fought a battle and has never won a war; let along of the one of the magnitude the war on radical Islam presents.
This is why we must fight to keep our nation out of the hands of those who seek to destroy it. With the past midterm elections, we Conservatives have won a decisive battle, but it is just a start. 22 of the 46 "Blue Dog" Democrats were voted out, the result; the Democrat party will now be composed almost exclusively of the radical left. Only Conservatism can save the Republic; any extended rule by the radical left in this country will only guarantee it's eventual downfall. Such political philosophy does not bring strength and prosperity, it only brings reliance on entitlements, bloated governments and failed states. Just look to Iceland, Greece and France, countries which are on the verge of collapse. By embracing "diversity" rather than preserving and protecting it's own cultures, the European continent will be predominantly Muslim by the year 2050.
And so the fight continues.

Background: I went to view the two year old YouTube video of the introduction of Sarah Palin by John McCain as his running mate for his Presidential run. This was mostly to see again what she said that inspired me that day. Aside from the video, what I found were many foul, offensive and incendiary comments about Sarah Palin by those of the Left. Well this got my dander up and I ended up replying to a few. My main issue aside from the nastiness of the rants was my question; why on Earth did they choose to take the trouble to view a Sarah Palin video, if they hate her so? What is that about? As far as I am concerned, I go out of my way to avoid at ALL costs any Obama video or sound bite; sorry, I think he is on a mission to ruin (in his words: "transform") this great country and for that I cannot tolerate anything that he says; a normal reaction. So why would these folks on the Left bother to seek out a Sarah Palin video? Because they are obsessed with her in some strange/ sick way. I have had the unfortunate experience of observing the Left's rage being expressed in highly emotional, irrational ways. I have many times observed, for instance, that an attractive Conservative woman, a Conservative Black person or an unsuspecting Conservative Gay person to often suffer (to some extent) the same wrath from the Left as Sarah Palin has and still does.
In one of my responses on YouTube, I mentioned that I considered Obama to be a Marxist. Well that set some of them off; wanting "proof" or to argue the point. So here it is:
The Obama administration has worked to demolish the economy of the United States in in order to usher in government control. This would include Obama's war on business, including his fight to extend the Bush tax cuts to anyone making over $250,000; the "rich" which encompasses most small businesses.
Obama stated his belief that "we have to spread the wealth around, we have to redistribute the wealth of this country through taxation;" a paraphrasing of Marx's "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need." This philosophy of his strongly influences the policies that he supports.
His health care "reform" is nothing more than his plan to achieve a single payer, government controlled system. By placing undue, punitive burdens on private insurance companies, an obpressive environment will be created that will prevent these providers from creating essential profits and our private insurance companies will soon disappear. A win for the Obama administration and government control of one sixth of the American economy.
Obama's Marxist foreign policy rejects our longtime allies (Israel, Poland and the Czech Republic for example) by removing or reducing vital support, leaving Israel at risk from the terror supporting Iran and the latter two vulnerable to the increasing totalitarian Russia. Obama rejects our allies and embraces our enemies.
Obama's Cap and Trade is a thinly veiled Marxist transfer of wealth. It is a policy he still intends to pursue; along with having parts implemented by the EPA.
Obama's past also reveals his Marxist ties. Just a few off the top of my head: Bill Ayres, Jeremiah Wright, many in his cabinet, such as Obama appointed Van Jones, a known Marxist socialist.
With all of that being said, anyone who still takes issue with my "Obama is a Marxist" statement will never be convinced no matter what I say nor any examples I may cite.
Obama has increased Federal spending over his first two years by a whopping 20.4%. The intention: Bringing about "transformative" change by overloading and collapsing our present economic system. Google the Cloward and Piven strategy to understand what we are up against here.
You see, I came from the Left, I was an activist with several Leftist "causes". What finally transformed me into a Conservative thinker was September 11, among other things, but mostly it was the questioning my old beliefs. After examining both sides, I made my choice. I now see the majority of the Left to be corrupt, deceptive, race baiters, being largely immoral. In my humble opinion, that in this day and age, that those who still embrace the Left are, I believe, well beyond reason.
And the YouTube video in question:

As the world is focused on the proposed Islamic center/mosque at the Ground Zero site in Lower Manhattan, work on continues on another controversial project in Pennsylvania. The memorial for the 40 crew and passenger that died on September 11 while attempting to take control of United Airlines flight 93, which the hijackers intended to crash into either the White House or the Capitol Building.
The controversy of the Pennsylvania memorial named The Crescent of Embrace, involves the section of the memorial; the Memorial Pathway that is virtually identical to the Islamic crescent, moon and star symbol, which to believers, signifies divinity, sovereignty and victory. As the proposed mosque project at the World Trade Center site would denote an Islamic victory, so does the design of the Flight 93 memorial. One other disturbing fact is that the crescent points where? To Mecca.
There has been some outcry demanding the crescent design be stricken from the memorial. The Park Service at first dismissed these concerns, proposed minor changes, but the design still remains basically the same. The Crescent of Embrace, some theorize is designed to be the world's largest mosque. In an attempt by the Park Service to silence critics, Muslim scholars were brought in as consultants but they gave at best dishonest explanations and excuses; such that the sheer size of the proposed crescent, somehow made it irrelevant.
Another offensive aspect of the Pennsylvania memorial are the proposed glass panels each to commemorate the individual victims of the crash. How many? 44; meaning the terrorists are also to be memorialized. Park Service representatives have denied this claim, but they have proven to be less than truthful in regards to the other concerns of this project.
It is obvious that this memorial itself is being essentially hijacked by our enemies, so that it will be a "victory mosque" symbolizing Islam's dominion over it's enemies just as the proposed project on Park Place in Lower Manhattan will be. As this project grows closer to it's completion date, it is essential that we Americans take back this memorial and deny Islam fanatics another win.
Petition to call for Congressional investigation of Islamic symbolism in the Flight 93 memorial:

They call it Cordoba House, named for the of the Caliphate of Cordoba in the seventh century in Spain, when Islam conquered and ruled Spain for 800 years. As "Remember the Alamo" has been a rallying cry for the US military so is Cordoba and what it represents, a rallying cry for Islam; a name that is symbolic of Islam's conquest over the west. Naming the Islamic center/ mosque at ground zero Cordoba House is our enemies' way of establishing a victory marker in Lower Manhattan and stunningly, it has been given the blessing of the foolish Mayor Bloomberg and, of course, the Left. Names matter as do dates to our enemy; the projected start date for the this abomination? September 11, 2011. If someone would have read you the proceeding scenario in the days following the attacks of 9/11, you no doubt would have laughed at the impossibility of the very thought. Yet America is allowing this obscenity to to be erected near the Ground Zero site; defiling the memory of all those who perished on that day. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is Chairman of Cordoba Initiative claims that the goal of this project is to heal wounds; instead it is callously reopening them. This imam is at best a liar; a man who refuses to call Hamas a terrorist organization and refuses disclose who is funding the 100 million dollar project.
The White House was asked for comment on the decision to permit the mosque to be build at the Ground Zero site, spokesmouth Robert Gibbs stated: “I think this is rightly a matter for New York City and the local community to decide,” and that it was a 'local matter' and that the president would not meddle in local affairs. Tell that to Arizona or the Cambridge Police that acted "stupidly". Once again, Obama taking the side of our enemies.
Once more, America is seen as weak by the world and more importantly, our enemies. We allow Iran to become a nuclear power, as we agree to reduce our own arsenal. We allow North Korea to bomb our allay South Korea and say and do nothing. We treat terror attacks against us as ordinary crime scenes and read terrorists their rights. We have a president who travels the world bowing, scraping and apologizing to our enemies. And now, less than nine years after 9/11 we cave to political correctness and give our enemies what they see as a great victory. No good can come out of the building of this monstrosity. With the building of a Ground Zero mega-mosque, we have given our enemy a very big win and we have emboldened them. So, can Al Qaeda can relax now that their enemy America has become a willing victim? No, not if we patriotic Amerians stand up to this outrage.

The NAACP has now taken to attacking the Tea Party movement and calling the group racist. Yet again, when the left (and the NACCP is now definitely a leftist organization) cannot win an augment based on facts, it resorts to mudslinging and slander. Apparently they never hear of Andrew Breitbart's challenge of an offer of $100,000 to anyone that could produce any proof of racial slurs (the N word, specifically) being hurled at a recent DC Tea Party rally.
A look on the NAACP website carries a denouncement of the Oscar Grant verdict, a case where there was no evidence of the tragic killing being a deliberate act(see the posting of July 11 on this blog). The jury deliberated and gave the accused a very stiff sentence; not enough for the NAACP, nor Holder's DOJ for that matter. The NAACP has also issued a legal challenge to the Arizona "racial profiling law" as the NAACP calls it. Just more race baiting which ironically, again mirrors the recent actions of Holder's DOJ.
The NAACP endorses the Cap and Trade legislation, won't denounce the New Black Panther's racist remarks nor their illegal actions of voter intimidation during the last presidential election. The NAACP adopted a resolution condemning state Attorney Generals' lawsuits against Obamacare. Maybe worst of all, the NAACP supports taxpayer funding for abortion; just like surprise, Obama. On average 1,876 black babies are aborted each year in the United States, over 13 million sicce 1973.
The NAACP long ago ceased being a relevant civil rights organization (their curious use of the antiquated term "Colored" only bemoans this fact. This organization has now become just another radical leftist group that blindly supports ANY legislation and ANY position of the Obama Administration. One wonders what more does the NAACP need to do in order to have it's tax exempt status revoked?
Sunday, July 11, 2010
The Obama administration and it's Justice Department have chosen not to pursue prosecution of the New Black Panthers on voter intimidation charges; this decision is quite telling, as is the accusations coming from a DOJ whistle blower. An attorney on the case, J. Christian Adams has accused the DOJ of racial bias for dropping charges against the New Black Panther Party and that "It (the DOA) will only pursue cases with minority victims" You can bet your life that if the roles were reversed and it was a white activist group intimidating black voters, the DOJ would be all over it. With Arizona's anti-illegal immigration bill, Holder's DOJ is planning to sue that state on the grounds of racial profiling. Nevermind the fact that the bill mirrors federal laws and specifically prohibits profiling; this administration can't seem to control itself where race is concerned.
More recent is Holder's DOJ opening a probe to investigate the shooting of Oscar Grant, a black 22 year old by a white former San Francisco BART transit officer, Johannes Mehserle. The shooter claimed that in the confusion of the arrest of Grant, the officer accidentally grabbed his gun instead of his teaser and fired. The jury believed Mr. Mehserle's story and determined that his actions were criminally negligent and could be given to up to 14 years; not exactly a light sentence. Now the DOJ is investigating to see if Grant's civil rights were violated, if so, that would mean even more jail time for Mehserle. The shooting was obviously a horrible mistake and not murder. Why would the officer, for whatever reason, shoot a suspect, who was lying face down and unarmed in the back? Moreover, the shooting was done in front of a crowd witnesses with camera phones running and with other transit officers at the scene. It's ridiculous for anyone to reach the conclusion that this was a deliberate murder. But, not for Obama and his Attorney General.
Here again, reverse the roles with a black perpetrator and a white victim; there is no way in hell that the DOJ would spend a second contemplating an investigation in such a case. It appears he Obama administration whether consciously or unconsciously, is obsessed with race and racism (both real and imagined)and is using reverse racism to redress our country's history regarding race and it's social inadequacies. It is a very disturbing realization that our first black/ half black president is so damaged and resentful that he has taken to attacking the very country where the majority elected him. During the Obama campaign, we had plenty of warning signs that this man had more than a few problems in the area of race, with his association with contemptible Rev. Jeremiah Wright being the more obvious. We are a nation that elected a man who used his race and manipulated America's "white guilt" to get elected, all with the grand promises of bringing the races and the country together. We are now suffering under the reign of a resentful neo-Marxist who has proven to be the most polarizing president that we have had in generations, perhaps ever. Of all the many things that Obama has done to damage and malevolently transform this nation, his use of race to divide America in order to achieve his agenda is without a doubt the sickest, the most deplorable and the most disturbing.

European leaders at the G 20 summit in Toronto, agreed to reduce spending and "committed to fiscal plans that will at least halve deficits by 2013 and stabilize or reduce government debt-to-GDP ratios by 2016," according to the joint statement. This in sharp contrast to Obama's competing letter that proposed increased spending to avoid budget consolidation that he believes would "undermine confidence and hamper growth."
Didn't the Senate just vote down a $35 billion dollar stimulus package, due to it being unfunded and was not deficit neutral? Did not Michael Mullen, the current Joint Chiefs of Staff just declare that the national debt was a security threat? It is now very evident that reason and facts no longer hamper our president in pursuit of achieving his great agenda. Along with the nation's debt, Obama's economic policies themselves are now becoming a national security threat to the country.
This administration's illogical, irresponsible and unjustifiable spending policies are now seen for what they truly are and have now even been rejected by Europe's leaders. Europe is now telling Obama, that they have lived the socialist's dream; and it is a nightmare that is leading them to financial ruin. But all of that doesn't matter to Obama. Is it because Obama is following the Cloward and Piven strategy to bring radical change by ushering in unsustainable demands on the governmental system's infrastructure? This seems to be the case. Our only hope of reversing this destructive Marxist's path are the upcoming November elections. While we can't as yet vote this America hating bum out; we can render him powerless by taking over both houses of Congress. The world is now beginning to see Obama for what he is and mercifully, his days appear to be numbered.

With the abysmal handling of the gulf coast oil spill (as with so many things), one may start to rethink Obama's aptitude for the job. Perhaps he wasn't acting "Presidential" when he hoped to "kick some ass", yet in retrospect it wasn't a good idea for him to do a lot of things. Though, was it a "good Idea" for our country to elect a community organizer and part-time professor to the highest office in the land? Perhaps not, but not so with the fully indoctrinated; all is good. Any mention to my leftist friends that perhaps their man is a "walking, breathing train wreck", or, is "pathetically and horrifyingly out of his league" or is , "the most God-awful president in US history since Carter" are met with scowls, shock and horror. Go figure!
His attempt to turn our country into a clone of the failed and nearly bankrupt European state is to the untrained eye beyond perplexing. I suppose he is so profound in his divine wisdom as an ex part-time professor, that this gives him a leg up on perfecting this road to economic hell. In his wisdom, his cabinet, are similarly made up of those with the same twisted mindset of academia. Luckily for all of us they are apparently giving him all the delusional support that he desires and seems to need so badly. Good for them!
Lucky for we, the stupid masses, Obama is massively growing the economy in an apparent attempt to collapse it (see the writings of those wacky numbskulls that are Cloward and Piven!). Also, we should all get on our knees to Obama for throwing a wreaking ball into the greatest healthcare system the world has ever seen (oh, don't worry about that required rationing that follows every other such entitlement that has been instituted worldwide). And, never mind that he is still out there selling the abomination; so stupid the American public is! One would think that something so glorious would sell itself. Apparently not; but, not to worry; Barry knows best!
Old allies (allies prior to our man Barry, anyway) are now on the outs of his administration and old enemies are given preferred, even gracious treatment. Israel (with whom he stands up for about as often as he does his own county; supposedly the US) is now facing mounting threats from two fronts, the freedom loving Iranian backed Hamas and Hezbollah. Also, North Korea sinks a South Korean ship with hardly a word. Attempted attacks are on the rise inside the US, with their success only prevented due to chance and happenstance. I could go on, but I don't have all night here. But, hey, don'tcha all feel safer?
Not to worry, there is more to come on Barry's political horizon. Next is the US economy's dagger to it's heart, "Cap and Trade". Secure the border? No, better to trash Arizona that only seeks to enforce the non-enforced federal law. Yes, much better we pit state against state and promote statewide boycotts. It's OK folks, Barry likes the amnesty, his party needs the votes; that should be enough for you. If you don't like it, move to Mexico. That is if you can get around Mexico's nasty and punitive immigration laws.
I don't know what kind of society that the messiah Barry is trying to usher in, but so far it looks like our Founder's worst nightmare. But, not to worry Americans, Barry is out there swearing like a sailor. Yes, his shallow attempt to try to fool the masses that he is a president with a backbone and that he possesses the fury to protect a country that he has great contempt for is surely a sight for sore eyes.
What has been a national embarrassment has now morphed into our own national nightmare as well as a worldwide menace. Some of us chose to elect a man with no experience and with a background that would not even allow him to be employed in the Department of Secret Service that protects him. Yes, Barry, if you are looking for an ass to kick, just look in the mirror. And we thought Carter was bad. Only two more years folks, two more years; come on, what more could happen?
Yes, what could happen?

Numerous ACT! for America members, as well as leaders of Stop Islamization of America (SOIA), and many other concerned citizens, attended the Community Board 1 meeting in lower Manhattan regarding the proposed “ground zero mosque.”
From the report we received from one ACT! for America member, we agree with the posting at Jihad Watch—the fix was in.
Opponents of the mosque were repeatedly attacked as racists and bigots. No surprise there. By now we all know this is the standard form of propaganda used to avoid discussion of facts in the hope of suppressing free speech.
One board member said it would not be a mosque but a “cultural community center.” Imam Abdul Rauf implied this as well, avoiding using the word “mosque.”
However, Daisy Khan, the imam’s wife, undercut this assertion when she said “there are 200 mosques in New York, what’s the problem with another?”
In a letter distributed at the meeting Manhattan’s Borough president applauded the “multi-faith dialogue” that would take place at the “community and cultural center.”
Yet Khan showed a Power Point presentation that contained one very illuminating message—that the proposed Islamic center would help in the integration of non-Muslims.
Does that sound conducive to “multi-faith dialogue” to you?
Our ACT! for America member reported that Debra Burlingame, whose brother was the pilot of the jet that crashed into the Pentagon, pointed out that the Islamic center is intended to be “sharia compliant.”
Have you ever heard of a “cultural community center” that is sharia compliant?
In the end the board voted 29 to 9 in favor of the mosque. However, the board has no actual power or authority in this matter. So this is not a done deal.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg needs to hear from concerned citizens across America that we are standing with the families of the victims of 9/11, that in deference to their memory this mosque should be located elsewhere and not at ground zero.
If you haven’t already done so, please add your name to the over 35,000 people who’ve signed our petition opposing the “ground zero mosque.” Remember, only your name and state will be included on the petition:

Obama campaigned on bringing the country together; yet somehow has proved to be the most polarizing president in our history."Hope and change," catchy phrases that masked his unsavory ideology and subversive agenda. This divisive outcome is no accident; causing division among the populous is a means to an end; it is clear now that the goal is to radically transform out nation into a Marxist/Socialist state.
This disgraceful, deceptive and damaged man that is now occupying the White House is a devoted follower of the writings of Saul Alinsky. The writings of Alinsky have heavily influenced the Obama administration as it actively works to divide the nation The result is that the philosophical and political differences of left vs. those of the right has never been so pronounced nor has the mood of the nation been more volatile.
The latest polarizing move is this administration's manipulation of the new Arizona law which mirrors the largely unenforced Federal Immigration law. Obama, Napolitano and Holder have freely criticized it while admitting they never read the law, which is all of twenty pages. Why bother reading it? If it comes from the right; it's wrong. That along with the appalling spectacle of a President that says nothing as the leader of Mexico; Mr. Calderon spews lies and half-truths about our country and our immigration policy, all the while his country's own treatment of illegals has caused Amnesty International to attack Mexico's own harsh policies. Obama once again dissing his country as he further divides it.
The left does not base it's positions on facts so much as it does on emotion. "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it…. [T]here is no point to tactics unless one has a target upon which to center the attacks" wrote Alinsky. "The organizer who forgets the significance of personal identification, will attempt to answer all objections on the basis of logic and merit. With few exceptions this is a futile procedure." In other words, don't confuse the blind followers with the facts; emotions are far more effective.
Alinsky believed that an organizer needed to create in the indoctrinated a negative and visceral emotional reaction those on the other side. Remember how the Tea Party members were slandered with false claims of racism? Those that challenged the takeover of healthcare were similarly smeared and discounted. It is all a tactic; a means to an end of the Marxists that are in control of our government and are hijacking the country.
America is being attacked economically via the Cloward and Piven model (bringing about radical change by overloading the system)and on a political and philosophical front by the Alinsky model. Alinsky said: "Men will act when they are convinced their cause is 100 percent on the side of the angels, and that the opposition are 100 percent on the side of the devil." That is what those blind Obama followers on the left think of their opposition, the Tea Partiers, even our Founding Fathers; to them, we are all the devil; we need to be stopped. So, what Obama has promised America and is attempting to deliver is "transformative" change; change that is to be achieved by destroying our country from within. He is close to achieving this; something the Progressives have dreamed of for decades. Well, unfortunately we are on to them. Transform our country? Like hell he will.

Obama has been pushing German Chancellor Angela Merkel to pony up to the bailout of Greece to the tune of nearly a trillion dollars from all "contributors." A trillion dollars for a country with a population less than that of Los Angeles County. In the words of Merkel, it "just buys time." What has happened to Greece is brewing throughout Europe, with the weak Eurozone economies of Spain and Portugal looming. Expect a hellish domino effect if that takes place.
So why is the world throwing good money no one actually has after bad? Is it because the world is spending like a drunken liberal and can't stop? Partly. Is it because of Obama's incessant pushing of European leaders? Partly. But why is he pushing so? Because a European bailout sets a precedent for bailouts here in America. Into TARP was included 112 billion dollars to bailout bankrupt states. There are 48 states that are nearing financial collapse (with California, New York and New Jersy heading the pack) totaling nearly 450 billion in total deficits.
The quickest way to bring about transformative change? Collapse the system. Again, the Cloward and Piven strategy rears it's ugly head (see the post here from August 25, 2009). It is the crisis of all crises and the Obama gang is not about to let this one go to waste.

The global culture is changing rapidly, with Islam overtaking Christendom; Islam has now overtaken Catholicism as the world's largest religion. In order for a culture to maintain itself for a period of 25 years requires a fertility rate of 2.1 children per family. A fertility rate of 1.9 has never been reversed and a 1.3 rate is said to have an zero probability rate of reversal in that it would require 80-100 years for a reversal.
The European Union, which is made up of 31 countries is on an irreversible course, with a 1.38 fertility rate, whereas Muslim immigrants have a fertility rate of about 8 (in France 8.1 per family). By 2025 one third of all children born in the European Union will be Muslim. It is estimated that by 2050, the entire continent will be Islamic. A quote from Maummar al-Gaddifi, leader of Libya; "There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe without swords, without guns, without conquest. We don't need terrorists, we don't need suicide bombers, with 50 million Muslims (in Europe) we will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades."
Canada is going in the same direction as is the United States. Presently the U.S. has a 1.6 fertility rate per family; we also are headed on an irreversible course. At an Islamic Strategy Conference held in Chicago, part of their agenda was to address this issue: "We must prepare ourselves for the reality that in 30 years, there will be 50 million Muslims living in America."
How does one reverse this course? Countries may have all the "increase our population" campaigns, increased tax credits for larger families, or whatever else one can imagine, but the effects of any or all is bound to be minimal and have little effect on low fertility rates. Western culture has changed what with more wives working outside the home, less influence from religion, more birth control; a myriad of reasons as to why we are having less children, all have contributed to a culture that produces less children than previous generations.
Europe will be lost in a few decades. If America is to avoid Islamicization, what can be done? The most logical method would be to increase legal immigration from our southern border. Our fertility rate rises from 1.6 per family to 2.1 when increased Latino immigration is factored in. Latino culture is quite compatible with American culture; Latinos assimilate well into America. The same cannot be said with much of the Muslim culture. It is a fact that radical Islam's ultimate goal is to Islamisize the entire globe. It would be in our country's best interest to work towards real immigration reform, build the damned border fence and increase legal immigration levels for our neighbors to the south. Our country's future depends on it.

The Obama administration has proposed to implement a new policy on the use of nuclear weapons. It's "goal" according to the White House is to move toward a policy where the "sole purpose" for nuclear weapons will be to deter to or respond to a nuclear attack. Also proposed that the US may not respond with a nuclear weapon if a nation attacks the US with a biological or chemical attack if that nation is in compliance with the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty.
What this policy will essentially do is to make the US a target; an easy mark. By declaring that we will not strike first and by limiting the use of our nuclear weapons puts the US at a very great risk. This policy has the effect of making the US appear weak in the eyes of our enemies; thereby inviting attack. Obama's now painfully obvious dislike of this country and his leftist belief in moral relativism has now taken a most dangerous manifestation.
My hope is that country can survive until this man is out of office. He has yet again broken the oath he took to defend the United States and it's Constitution. If ever there was a need to impeach a US president, this is the time.

Surprised by Obama's suddenly embracing the building of more nuclear power plants and to increase offshore drilling? Don't be. Another diversion from other issues such as his disastrous healthcare legislation, debt worries and 10%+ unemployment.
What Obama said in May:"I think we do have to look at nuclear, and what we've got to figure out is can we store the material properly? Can we make sure that they're secure? Can we deal with the expense?" Meaning: Forget about it; he will use environmentalist concerns as well as the subjective question of how secure is secure as far as waste storage to prevent the building of new plants indefinitely. Another lie, yet more half truths, another diversion; call it what you like. So, that along with the calling for increased funding for nuclear plants as he at the same time nixes funds for waste storage reveals Obama's true intentions.
As far as offshore drilling he proposed most recently; more of the same. He has urged Congress to move on the "climate change" bill. This includes cutting greenhouse gasses (including the harmless carbon dioxide) by 17% by the year 2020. Also in the works are new co2 emissions rules from the EPA. The Interior Department has already said that it will hold off any potential drilling with years of environmental studies on the eastern seaboard and outer continental shelf drilling. Meaning no more drilling for decades, if ever.
So whenever you think that Obama has moved a bit to the center, think again; it is yet more deception, of which, he is the master.
