Ronald Reagan At 58

28 02 2009

I hope all of you had the chance to watch Rush Limbaugh this rush2_edited1evening speaking at the CPAC convention. With his speech still fresh in people’s minds, it would be nice to hear different opinions of what people thought of it.

There were many high points, but I was most encouraged by his constant reference to Conservative values, not Republican values. And for me, that’s the point. If the Republicans want back in power, they had damn well better go back to solid American Conservative values. What do you think?

Consider this an Open Thread for Rush….

Ronald Reagan At 13

28 02 2009

 There was a 13 year old pre-teen male at the CPAC convention that made a wonderful two minute speech. He actually made me feel hopeful for the future of our children and grandchildren.

Please watch and listen to his 2 minute speech. Then drop down further on this page to some of the comments I picked up over at one of the nets largest liberal/communist sites.

His speech will encourage you, the lefty comments will sicken you.

First his speech… go here.

Jonathan Krohn is a 13 year old Ronald Reagan.

Jonathan Krohn is a 13 year old Ronald Reagan.

Now for some of the dumbest comments you may ever read. All of the following comments are in reference to Jonathan and the wonderful speech he gave today in Washington.

“Right now, he’s just an annoying little squirt but I foresee in twenty or so years, he’ll be a real d-hole. Sad, kid doesn’t even know how messed up he is.

No, what’s sad is how you don’t know how messed-up you are!

This kid is a fraud……He’s nothing more than Newt in wunderkind drag….

That’s funny, and here all this time I thought comrade Obama was the fraud. Like this…


It’s amazing how these Neo-Cons fawned all over this carnival freak show spectacle.

Being a patriotic, God loving, clear headed American now makes you a freak? You folks are sick!

The kid is creepy.

Obama the Marxist is creepy, not this 13 year old kid.

Adolescents believe they are absolutely right. That’s why they’re so dangerous.

With all due respect, you are a damn fool!

No surprise. Conservatives have the values of a 13-year old and can relate to one.

No surprise. Liberals have the values of a drugged-out hooker and can relate to one.

Inflate this kid with equal parts hot air and arrogance and you get a full-sized Republican.

Holy crap. We try and try, yet you still refuse to take your fingers out of your ears. He is NOT talking about Republicanism, this bright young man is talking about CONSERVATISM!

This kid came straight from “Village of the Damned.”

And his Bus had to drive right through your town of Shithole to get there.

When I was his age I listened to talk radio and was pretty conservative, too. Then I grew up, my parents lost their house, and I couldn’t afford to go to college. Being out in the real world has a way of forcing you to give up your silly ideas about it.

Newsflash… Wolfman Jack was NOT a talk show. Moron!

Why didn’t this kid’s parents expose him to something more constructive than conservative talk radio, like porn or Mad Magazine?

I’m betting you are one of those that flunked Lunch in High School.

And to think that I used to have to spend $5 on two hits of purple microdot to get this far from reality.

This kid proves that he has far more intelligence than you. If you paid money to fry a few million brain cells by dropping Acid, then it seems to me that you are the dumb one.

His statement that he’d like to see Palin as President is appalling, and leads me to believe he has been coached in his delivery. The points he uses to criticize the current batch of Republicans for their lack of true conservatism are exhibited in every way by fiscally irresponsible (Bridge to Nowhere) policies, her lack of respect for life (unless, of course, you’re talking about the tiny subset of ife that are human fetuses), and her lack of personal responsibility.

You are one very messed-up human being. I pray you never pro-create!

He is simply regurgitating the same old cr@p that has been spewed over and over. No substance, just a precocious little wise @ss.

Which makes you what? A precocious big wise-ass?

His intelligence is seriously in question if he would love to see Sarah Palin as president.

Your intelligence is seriously in question for making such a bone-headed comment.

We have Barack Obama, they have a thirteen year old boy who tries to channel William F. Buckley. Absolutely pathetic.

Yeah, I understand. You guys are stuck with a sock-puppet like Obama, and we have promising leaders for our future.

That kid is pretty well spoken and definitely is impressive. But I really really want to punch him in the face. Yeah yeah, he’s only 13. Whatever. He seems to think he’s much older than that, so I can punch him.

So I guess you are NOT one of those peace loving lefty’s are you? You must be one of those assholes that watch WWE wrestling and think it’s all real. Curious… have you guys caught BigFoot yet?

OK. So we’ve shown that stupidity knows no age. Next.”
Then by all means, please tell us your age.

Terror/Hate Good – Peace/Love Bad

28 02 2009


I should probably ask for everyone’s forgiveness because this evil2_editedpost is going to be a long one, but considering I am one of the few Americans left in this country that refuses to take-it up the poop-chute, I will not apologize. Before you change your mind and click on another site, let me give you a tease as to what this post will be about… Islam is a murdering cult!

This post should worry every single person in the Free World.

If you live in a country that allows you to openly practice your faith, you need to consider what’s in this entire post. Be patient, keep reading, and my point should become abundantly clear.

This story is about an independent film-maker from the Netherlands who goes by the name of Geert Wilders. Mr. Wilders is also a member of Parliament in the Netherlands and part-time documentary film-maker. Mr. Wilders decided to make a documentary about the Muslim faith. Because he decided to tell the truth about the faith, he has run into all sorts of problems. His first problem starts in the Netherlands where they deny him the right to show his movie anywhere in the country. That was only the beginning…

I first made note of his troubles when I posted the Video he made called “Fitna” which I highlighted in this post… The Third Jihad . This video is an excellent piece and after reviewing it on three separate occasions, I can say without reservation that Mr. Wilders included nothing but facts, and reality, as it applies to the Muslim religion. I strongly urge people to watch this video, and I strongly urge people to pass this video on to others.

A few days after I posted the above video I was forced into doing an update here. Below is a short description of the update…

 Though Geert Wilders’ controversial film was scheduled to be screened in the House of Lords in London on January 29, complications forced the screening to be postponed for two weeks”.

Then of course we had update #2 a day later… here.Where I reported that not only would the British government not allow his movie to be screened, but they were also barring Mr. Wilders from entering the country. As fate would have it for Mr. Wilders, the United Nations would end up getting involved . And finally, we find ourselves with Mr. Geert Wilders coming to America to promote his film.

Mr. Wilders has an important message he’s trying to relate to the people of the civilized world, but the civilized world seems to be hell bent on keeping him from telling the story. Why? Seriously, why does the western world refuse to face the reality of the Muslim religion? I honestly do not understand the reluctance of people, and governments, to admit that what is reported in this documentary is the truth. This film by Mr. Wilders simply takes info that can be found in the Qur’an and associates it with what is happening in modern times. And for this he is being black-balled by nations and tagged as a trouble maker simply for telling the truth.

In closing, at least with my part of the rant, I want to ask you a question. First read the piece below that was written by an American moron. Then I would ask you to sit back and wonder the following… would you feel better by going through life knowing the truth and having your fellow Americans know the truth, or would you feel better by going through life knowing that one of the biggest lies in history is being perpetuated by your own government.

If you chose the latter, then you have no business living in a free society!

Geert Wilders on Capitol Hill

By Eboo Patel

There is a foreign element threatening America. He believes the Qur’an promotes violence. He creates videos of Muslims committing terrorist acts and hopes mainstream media plays them. He is committed to the clash of civilizations — Islam vs. the West. Britain, our primary ally, denied him entry, claiming he was a threat to public order. Now he wants to come here.

This foreign element does not speak Arabic. He does not pray five times a day. He does not have a beard. He is not even a Muslim. He is Geert Wilders, a Member of Parliament from a right-wing party in the Netherlands. Why he’s so interested in amplifying Osama bin Laden’s message that Islam promotes violence and division I don’t know.

And why he’s being invited to screen his offensive film Fitna in the ornate LBJ room in the U.S. Capitol confuses me too. My friend Keith Ellison, an African-American Congressman from Minnesota and a Muslim, compared it to screening the horribly racist film The Birth of the Nation in the White House.

A lot of people are mad about this. But I don’t think this is the time to get mad. I think this is the time to think strategy, and to remember core American values.

First, strategy.

1) If this becomes a conversation about free speech, go ahead and hand Geert Wilders the trophy because he wins. The truth is lots of things qualify under free speech. Dirty jokes. Ugly lies. Stupid rumors. Probably Fitna does too. Let’s not get into that cat fight. The issue isn’t whether it’s legal to screen Fitna in the LBJ room, but whether it’s American to do so. Shouldn’t the best of America be on display in the Senate? Shouldn’t Capitol Hill be amplifying our tradition of pluralism rather than returning to the dark days of racism?

2) If our best idea is to protest Wilders we give him the images he wants — the heroic free speech crusader surrounded by a group of angry looking (preferably bearded) people shouting him down.

3) We shouldn’t try to get Fitna banned. And we shouldn’t try to get Wilders deported. We should simply point out that Wilders highlights a choice for America: Should we engage one-fifth of the world’s population by punching them in the mouth or by reaching our hand out in friendship? Which approach represents the American way?

As God and America would have it, the American Way happens to be on display the same day that Wilders is screening his film. It’s a made-for-TV contrast.

Thursday afternoon, Senator John Kerry will be hosting a hearing on how the US. can best engage Muslim communities around the world. Kerry is concerned about the dismal image of the U.S. among a large swath of humanity, and is convinced that we can improve this by better communicating American values.

Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright will be testifying, as will Dalia Mogahed of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, and me. My guess is that all of us will say the first step to improving America’s image and foreign relations is simply showing respect towards our fellow human beings, including Muslims. Quite universal, really. Africans want respect. Europeans want respect. Americans want respect. Muslims want respect. Pretty basic.

President Obama understands the American virtue of showing respect to others. In his Inaugural Address he told the Muslim world “we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.” His first interview was with Al Arabiya, where he stated “My job is to communicate the fact that the United States has a stake in the well-being of the Muslim world, that the language we use has to be a language of respect.”

I’m confident that most Americans, seeing the stark choice between Kerry’s hearing and Wilders’ film, will choose the best of our nation instead of the worst of someone else’s country.

Come to think of it, I’m glad Geert Wilders is on Capitol Hill. I hope he drops by our session. Maybe he’ll learn something about American values too.

The International Free Press Society (IFPS) has issued an open letter to the British Government in response to their barring Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ entry to the country for the screening of ‘Fitna’ in the House of Lords.


I do not give a rats ass what some government weenies say, the truth of the matter is as follows… “The Qur’an promotes violence”.



Standing room only at Geert Wilders Event in the USA…Denied to Britons!

February 28, 2009

The event with Wilders was an unimaginable success …………….Pamela Hall caught it all. She has all the pics and videos. Waiting for her to load.

For Atlas, the highlight of the evening was the line out of the building. Wilders emerged from the elevator and the lines in the crowd went wild. Nobody caught that on video.

I apologize to the folks who were refused entry because the space was over capacity. From what I hear a hundred or more people could not get in.

The blogs rule. We are the future.
G-d bless Atlas readers.


Congratulations Atlas!

Obama Objects To Abortion Rule

27 02 2009

Why does Obama like to pop these changes concerning the killing of babies, late on Friday afternoon??? Don’t believe me, go do some checking on the changes he has made over the last few Fridays.pissed-off-magnet-c13110245

Back to my original question… Because he is a coward and does not care about the killing of innocent life. He could very well end up being a truly evil president. 

Not only does he not care about killing innocent babies, but he thinks it’s ok to force doctors to commit the crime.


Obama to rescind Bush abortion rule
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama plans to repeal a Bush administration rule that has become a flash point in the debate over a doctor’s right not to participate in abortions. The regulation, instituted in the last days of the Bush administration, strengthened job protections for doctors and nurses who refuse to provide a medical service because of moral qualms.

A Health and Human Services official said Friday the administration will publish notice of its intentions early next week, opening a 30-day comment period for advocates on both sides, medical groups and the public.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the notice has not been completed.

The Bush administration rule was quickly challenged in federal court by several states and medical organizations. As a candidate, President Barack Obama criticized the regulation and campaign aides promised that if elected, he would review it.

The news that he was doing so drew praise from abortion-rights supporters and condemnation from groups opposed to abortion.

“It would be a horrible move. These regulations were a long time coming,” said Tom McClusky, a vice president at Family Research Council. “What they seek to do is protect patients, nurses, doctors and other health care professionals from being forced to violate their consciences.”

McClusky and other abortion opponents said the Bush regulation clarified federal policies and raised awareness about the rights of medical providers to follow their consciences. But abortion rights advocates said it was vague and overly broad, and could reduce access to other services — allowing a drug store clerk to refuse to sell birth control pills, for example.

“I think it’s a wonderful step,” Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., who co-chairs the Congressional Pro-choice Caucus and has introduced legislation to overturn the regulation, said of Obama’s move.

“That rule was actually a poorly drafted last-minute attempt to, I think, restrict health care access and I think it would have had far-reaching and unintended consequences.”

Federal law has long forbidden discrimination against health care professionals who refuse to perform abortions or provide referrals for them on religious or moral grounds. The Obama administration supports those laws, said the HHS official.

The Bush administration’s rule adds a requirement that institutions that get federal money certify their compliance with laws protecting the rights of moral objectors. It was intended to block the flow of federal funds to hospitals and other institutions that ignore those rights.

But the Obama administration was concerned that the Bush regulation went too far and could also be used to refuse birth control, family planning services and counseling for vaccines and transfusions.

The White House released a statement saying that Obama supports a “carefully crafted” conscience clause — not Bush’s version.

“He believes this issue requires a balance between the rights of providers and the health of women and their families, a balance that the last-minute Bush rule appears to upset,” the statement said.

The administration will review comments from the public before making a final decision. Options range from repealing the regulation to writing a new one with a narrower scope.

The administration’s move was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Black Pinocchio?

Is Lying Funny?blackpinocchiokeynote_edited

-By Dan Scott

What is funny many times is only in the eye of the beholder and those with the proper context to appreciate the absurdity of the moment.  We can find humor in many things if we aren’t too close to the object of the humor.  David Leisure who did the Joe Isuzu TV commercials  back in the 1980s was extraordinarily funny with his transparently obvious lies while promoting vehicles.  Who didn’t find his absurdly false promises and assertions funny?  During the Iraq War, Baghdad Bob, the Iraqi (dis) Information Minister, gave America wonderful comic relief when he absurdly proclaimed the Iraqi Army was beating US forces.  His colorful descriptions added even more to the hilarity of the moment.  On the other hand, the Arab world believed every word and bought it hook, line and sinker. They were in total shock when US forces took Baghdad.

As we saw with Baghdad Bob, propaganda can be funny but that depends on who is watching.  Context is everything in comedy.  A joke’s subject matter depends on it’s audience.  When looking at old Soviet Union propaganda, at the time it wasn’t funny, but now some 30 years later it’s funny because we have the context of how absurd it was.  Today few laugh at Barrack Obama’s seemingly continuous stream of “misstatements”.  Prior to his election, one web site documented 158 of them.  Another site is keeping track of 510 promises Barrack Obama made during his campaign.  Shades of Jimmy Carter who put a book together called Promises, Promises to keep track of them all.  Since then Barrack Obama has continued with his less than forthright proclamations. In fact I wrote about three of them recently.  Others have also picked up on more whoppers as well.  Barrack Obama and his allies in Congress make claims of Transparent Government, however, they are the very people who obstruct anyone who wishes to look behind the curtain.  The so called Economic Stimulus/Rescue Bill was a classic demonstration on how to run an opaque legislative process through secretive bill writing, adding voluminous points which had no relation to the intent of the bill and not allowing sufficient time for an individual, i.e. a lawmaker, to even read the bill in the time allotted much less understand or score it. 

Bipartisanship seems to be another misstatement of the absurd.  When we think of bipartisanship we get the image of two groups of people with opposing ideas crafting legislation which reflects the degree of compromises each side is willing to make.  Nothing could be further from the truth as to what is currently happening in Congress with the acquiescence of Barrack Obama.  Bipartisanship has been redefined to mean finding three liberal senators in the GOP who will vote for the measure by meeting their low standards.  Bipartisanship has become the joke just as Transparency has become a joke.  So far, neither is funny but they are certainly absurd.

President Obama’s kind of, sort of, State of the Union speech was nothing more than another demonstration of making absurdly false statements under the cloak of seriousness but once again, his humor was not recognized. The idea that national health care saves money and delivers more service is a joke already played on the British and Canadians.  Another epitome of absurdity was the announcement during the Governors meeting that they needed to trim the federal budget deficit! These are the same clowns who said give us money to bail us out, i.e. the Economic Stimulus bill. So here they deficit spent on one bill and then proclaim we need to see savings in the 2009 federal budget all the while passing another bill with 9000 earmarks. Obama proclaimed he is going to cut the deficit in half by 2013, now that’s absurd since he plans to run it to $1.75 trillion in fiscal 2009.  This reminds me of the old snide observation of a store saying they’re running a 50% off sale after they had raised the sticker price up 100%.

It seems to me the current propaganda coming out of the government today is makes no pretense of stretching the borders of absurd, today it isn’t funny, but who knows tomorrow once getting over the shock of having been hoodwinked everyone maybe laughing. Right now like many people I’m not laughing, I’m shocked at the blatantly obvious lying by the people who are running the government.  Sooner or later President Obama and his allies will have jumped the shark  causing the public to cease taking these clowns seriously like the Arab World did with Baghdad Bob and just start laughing at the transparently obvious lies.  The joke is far more humorous when it’s no longer being played on you.

Combat operations in Iraq would end on Aug. 31, 2010,

when the U.S. military footprint in Iraq would be no

fewer than 35,000 and no more than 50,000, according

to officials who met Thursday with the president.

It must be nice to walk into a situation where the previous president did all the hard work in a war, just so you can come in and say to your cult followers… “I am the Messiah, I ended the war just like I said I would”. When in reality, Bush had already won the war, and we are now in mop-up operation mode.

Comrade Obama may very well be thye worst President we have ever had. Yes, even worse than Carter!

D.C. Needs Babysitters

Washington DC will be a-buzz with our nations youth over the

These are the kids that are demanding we save the planet. Now that's funny!

These are the kids that are demanding we save the planet. Now that's funny!

next four days starting Friday February 27, 2009.

 It seems as if a few adults have gotten together to prod some of our youth into spending the next 4 days in one of the most dangerous, and violent cities in the country.

And why are the youth of America being asked to make this sacrifice…? So they can badger Congress to spend billions of dollars (that we don’t have), that belongs to their parents (tax-payer money), so they can fix a problem that doesn’t exist, Global Warming!

A quick look at their backers tells a story. There is a little itsy-bitsy organization called Center for American Progress that is backing all these cute and cuddly College age kids. The youth group going to DC is called PowerShift, which is a sort of play on words. Let me explain… PowerShift got it’s roots back in 2007 to help register young people to vote, and then of course they were told to vote for Obama. With that success under their belts, the lefty adults that direct and steer these kids, decided to use a guy by the name of Van Jones to whip them into a frenzy using massive amounts of propoganda about the Environment. Van Jones and many others from the Center for American Progress are using this opportunity to get kids to march on DC, and then demand Congress spend gobs of money the country does not have, on a problem that doesn’t exist.

Before I leave you to the rest of this story, ponder this. The Center for American Progress is another anti-American organization. Their idea of a united America is where everyone in the country thinks just like them. Socialism/Marxism/Fascism/Communism take your pick, they love em’ all, and want to use our kids to destroy our great nation. What makes this organization so dangerous boils down to two things. One is it’s size! This is a huge organization with it’s fingers in all sorts of places and almost every aspect of government. The second is, the people that either run the operations or are leaders/teachers/activists in the organization have some pretty anti-American connections. For more info on this particular problem go here. My personal favorite is the lady that is on their staff that was once a board member of La Raza. For those of you that don’t know La Raza, look it up. I will give you one small hint… La Raza wants the western half of the United States given back to Mexico, by 2010.

Almost forgot… Everyone’s favorite Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is sponsoring these drunken rug-rats for the weekend. How sweet.



Power Shift climate protest gathers momentum in Washington. Thousands of young Americans are converging on Washington to demand clean energy policy and action on climate change

I’ve just arrived in the middle of the embassy district in Washington DC, where an entire building crammed full of youth climate organisers is finalising plans for Power Shift.

Last night, they opened the champagne. There are now more than 10,052 young people coming from all over America to the largest ever youth climate event in history, where they will lobby US political leaders to enact bold climate and energy policies that will rebuild our economy and halt global warming.

It will be the largest climate lobby day in the country’s history, and the first mass lobby of Obama’s term in office. Coverage is set to be widespread with national TV crews and newspaper journalists arriving on Friday, including BBC Newsnight.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, environmental leader Van Jones and dancehall artist Santigold are headlining and, with over 270 panels and workshops, organisers have had to hire the largest venue in the whole city.

The massive sign-up drive has generated a fierce rivalry between different universities to see who can bring the largest number of participants. With only 48 hours to go, Middlebury College trails the University of Vermont by only four participants with 194 coming. “We are bringing over 10% of our whole student body, which is pretty phenomenal,” said Ben Wessel, who is leading the recruitment drive at Middlebury.

Inspirational stories continue to pour in from every corner of the country. One sorority in Texas has rescheduled its initiation because the dates conflicted with Power Shift, while a group in California has started its epic train journey across the States to avoid having to fly. Mostly, though, it is the large list of first-time climate activists which is really exciting the organisers.

Many of these young Power Shift organisers have come fresh off the Obama campaign. Cory Warfild, who worked for Obama in Michigan, sees a lot of similarities. “There’s an energy, a sense of possibility here right now. We saw what success looks like last year, and we’re back for more,” he said.

On Monday, all this preparation will start to pay off. Meetings are scheduled with over 350 members of the House of Representative and the Senate – Capitol Hill won’t be able to avoid seeing what this generation needs.

Around the world, solidarity actions for Power Shift are taking place – from Armenia to Ecuador, and the Philippines to Russia. Earlier today a team of young people handed in a letter of support at the US Embassy in London, to demonstrate the international support to set bold national climate policy.

We know that with the Copenhagen talks just months away, the decisions taken by the US government on national climate policy will make or break the UN negotiations.

Let’s hope they listen to what these youth leaders have to say.

Kuwaiti prof: 330,000 dead from 4 pounds of anthrax
Outlines potential White House attack that would make 9/11 ‘small change’
Posted: February 25, 2009 8:43 pm Eastern
By Bob Unruh
2009 WorldNetDaily

A professor from Kuwait, the country liberated from Saddam Hussein’s attack squads by the United States in the first Gulf War, has outlined on Arab television a potential terror attack that would involve smuggling anthrax from Mexico into the U.S. and killing 330,000 people in 60 minutes.

The plan was described by Abdallah Al-Nafisi in a speech that aired on Al-Jazeera television Feb. 2, according to MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, an independent nonprofit that provides translations and analysis of media reports.

Al-Nafisi, whose school affiliation was not identified, says: “Four pounds of anthrax  in a suitcase this big  carried by a fighter through tunnels from Mexico into the U.S., are guaranteed to kill 330,000 Americans within a single hour, if it is properly spread in population centers there.”

He calls the plan “horrifying,” but says, “9/11 will be small change in comparison. Am I right?”

The plan is simple to carry out, he emphasized.

“There is no need for airplanes, conspiracies, timings and so on. One person, with the courage to carry four pounds of anthrax, will go to the White House lawn, and will spread this ‘confetti’ all over them, and then will do these cries of joy. It will turn into a real ‘celebration,'” Al-Nafisi said.

He said Americans already are afraid that WMDs will “fall into the hands of ‘terrorist’ organizations like al-Qaida and others.”


“There is good reason for the Americans’ fears, because al-Qaida used to have in the Herat region. … It had laboratories in north Afghanistan. They have scientists, chemists, and nuclear physicists. They are nothing like they are portrayed by these mercenary journalists  backward Bedouins living in caves. No, no. By no means. This kind of talk can fool only nave people. People who follow such things know that al-Qaida has laboratories, just like Hezbollah,” he said.

He cited Hezbollah “laboratories” in Lebanon where the terrorist group makes weapons to use and sell.

After viewing the Al-Nafisi video, Jamie Glazov, author of the new book “United in Hate” explained that “militant Islam needs to kill in order to survive. It can breathe only if it kills.”

He noted with President Bush now gone from office, potential threats from the likes of Al-Nafisi are closer to becoming reality.

“In the face of this morbid threat we have the liberal-Left trivializing the danger that confronts us and, worse still, going out of its way to frustrate our society’s ability to defend itself,” Glazov said. “We have Obama now, who has closed all of our CIA interrogation centers abroad, plans on closing Guantanamo, has appointed people who are intent on frustrating every ability we have to gather information on impending strikes, and the list goes terrifyingly on.”

Why does the American Left love radical Islam? Find out in “United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror.”

MEMRI said Al-Nafisi also ventured into other areas of comment.

He called terrorists “the most honorable people in the world, the best people in the world,” the report said.

He spoke of 300,000 “white militia members” in the U.S. who are “calling to attack the federal government in Washington, and to banish the Arabs, the Jews and the negroes (sic) from the U.S.”

Explained Al-Nafisi, “These are racist people. They are called ‘rednecks.’ The Ku Klux Klan. They are racists.”

He suggested that element in the U.S. is considering bombing “nuclear plants.”

“May Allah grant them success.  They have plans to bomb the nuclear plant at Lake Michigan. This plant is very important. It supplies electricity to all of North Africa (sic),” Al-Nafisi said.

He also dismissed any idea of discussions between Jews and Arabs.

“Allah states in the Quran that the hostility between us and [the Jews] is eternal. So whoever talks about dialogue  cut off his tongue! What dialogue are they talking about?! There is no room for dialogue. Allah said that our hostility towards the Jews is eternal, and then along comes someone and talks about brotherhood and so on … This contradicts the Quran. Anyone who contradicts the Quran is an infidel,” he said.

As part of his effort to further Arab interests, he also advocated threats against journalists.

“There are voices expressing doubts about the leaders of the resistance. We must confront these [journalists], and prevent them from continuing this, even if it means calling them over the phone, and saying to them: ‘Do not repeat these despicable things in your columns or your articles, or else we will take the following measures against you.’ We must resort to pressure with these people,” he said.

Bow To Obama

26 02 2009

The cult-like adulation of comrade Obama seems to have an obeyobama_editedentire religion more than just a little worried. If it’s any consolation, there are many of us who may not be Catholic, that totally agree!

Denver archbishop warns against spirit of adulation surrounding Obama

Toronto, Canada, Feb 23, 2009 / 09:03 pm (CNA).- Canadians packed St. Basil’s Church in Toronto on Monday evening to hear Archbishop Charles Chaput speak about how Catholics should live out their faith in the public square. He warned that in the U.S., Catholics need to act on their faith and be on guard against “a spirit of adulation bordering on servility” that exists towards the Obama administration.

The public lecture by Archbishop Chaput took place on the campus of the University of Toronto at St. Basil’s Church and was attended by an overflow crowd of more than 700 people.

After giving a sketch of the basic principles in his New York Times Bestseller “Render Unto Caesar,” the archbishop offered his insights on the need for an honest assessment of the situation of the Church in the public square.
“I like clarity, and there’s a reason why,” began the archbishop. “I think modern life, including life in the Church, suffers from a phony unwillingness to offend that poses as prudence and good manners, but too often turns out to be cowardice. Human beings owe each other respect and appropriate courtesy. But we also owe each other the truth — which means candor.”

The Denver prelate then provided his critique of President Obama.

“President Obama is a man of intelligence and some remarkable gifts. He has a great ability to inspire, as we saw from his very popular visit to Canada just this past week. But whatever his strengths, there’s no way to reinvent his record on abortion and related issues with rosy marketing about unity, hope and change. Of course, that can change. Some things really do change when a person reaches the White House. Power ennobles some men. It diminishes others. Bad policy ideas can be improved. Good policy ideas can find a way to flourish. But as Catholics, we at least need to be honest with ourselves and each other about the political facts we start with.”

Yet this will be “very hard for Catholics in the United States,” Chaput warned.

According to the archbishop, the political situation for Catholics is difficult to discern because a “spirit of adulation bordering on servility already exists among some of the same Democratic-friendly Catholic writers, scholars, editors and activists who once accused pro-lifers of being too cozy with Republicans. It turns out that Caesar is an equal opportunity employer.”

Looking ahead to the coming months and years, Chaput offered four “simple things” to remember.

“First,” he said, “all political leaders draw their authority from God. We owe no leader any submission or cooperation in the pursuit of grave evil.”

“In fact, we have the duty to change bad laws and resist grave evil in our public life, both by our words and our non-violent actions. The truest respect we can show to civil authority is the witness of our Catholic faith and our moral convictions, without excuses or apologies.”

In a reference to the messianic treatment the Barack Obama received from some Americans during the presidential primaries, Archbishop Chaput delivered his second point: “in democracies, we elect public servants, not messiahs.”

Noting that Obama actually trailed in the weeks just before the election, the Denver archbishop said that this places some of today’s talk about a “new American mandate” in perspective.

“Americans, including many Catholics, elected a gifted man to fix an economic crisis. That’s the mandate. They gave nobody a mandate to retool American culture on the issues of marriage and the family, sexuality, bioethics, religion in public life and abortion. That retooling could easily happen, and it clearly will happen — but only if Catholics and other religious believers allow it.”

The third point to focus on when the beliefs of Catholics are challenged is that “it doesn’t matter what we claim to believe if we’re unwilling to act on our beliefs,” Chaput counseled.

“The fourth and final thing to remember, and there’s no easy way to say it,” remarked Archbishop Chaput, is that the “Church in the United States has done a poor job of forming the faith and conscience of Catholics for more than 40 years.”

“And now we’re harvesting the results — in the public square, in our families and in the confusion of our personal lives. I could name many good people and programs that seem to disprove what I just said. But I could name many more that do prove it, and some of them work in Washington.”

American Catholics need to realize that many in the current generation haven’t just been “assimilated” into the American culture, but have in fact been “absorbed and bleached and digested by it,” Archbishop Chaput asserted.

If this realization doesn’t happen, the coming generations will continue on the same path and “a real Catholic presence in American life will continue to weaken and disappear,” said Chaput.

Citing the example of “unhappy, self-described Catholics who complain that abortion is too much of a litmus test,” he stated, “We can’t claim to be Catholic and pro-choice at the same time without owning the responsibility for where the choice leads  to a dead unborn child.”

The archbishop also addressed the “abortion reduction” argument being made by some in politics.

“We can’t talk piously about programs to reduce the abortion body count without also working vigorously to change the laws that make the killing possible. If we’re Catholic, then we believe in the sanctity of developing human life. And if we don’t really believe in the humanity of the unborn child from the moment life begins, then we should stop lying to ourselves and others, and even to God, by claiming were something were not.”

“Catholic social teaching goes well beyond abortion,” Chaput noted. “In America we have many urgent issues that beg for our attention, from immigration reform to health care to poverty to homelessness.”

Winding his talk down, the Archbishop of Denver remarked on the misunderstanding of the word “hope.”

“For Christians,” he explained, “hope is a virtue, not an emotional crutch or a political slogan. Virtus, the Latin root of virtue, means strength or courage. Real hope is unsentimental. It has nothing to do with the cheesy optimism of election campaigns. Hope assumes and demands a spine in believers. And that’s why  at least for a Christian — hope sustains us when the real answer to the problems or hard choices in life is no, we cant, instead of yes, we can.”

Common Sense – What’s That?

26 02 2009

h/t to GiovanniWorld member The Doktor for this timely playground_hotreminder.

An Obituary Worth Reading

An Obituary printed in the London Times – Interesting and sadly rather true.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

· Knowing when to come in out of the rain
· Why the early bird gets the worm
· Life isn’t always fair and
· maybe it was my fault

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers:

· I Know My Rights
· I Want It Now
· Someone Else Is To Blame
· I’m A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

Mandatory Viewing For Lefty’s

The other day I was trying to impress upon some of the readers here, that a site Jackie3 had listed as being sickening, was nothing more, or less, than a bad joke. At first blush it made your head spin, but as with most things in life, you just had to dig a little deeper to get at the truth.

Our Government

As I was going through the process of figuring out what the site was really all about, I came across the link below posted in one of the responses on a particular thread. There is no way I could give a decent segway to this video, so I will just leave you with this thought.

If you want the youth of this country to grasp the truth about our system of governance, make damn sure they watch this video!!!

Who’s Asking The Adult Questions?

24 02 2009






Who in the media are asking the hard questions?

At least two that I know of. Isn’t that sad? Our country is going through some pretty trying times, and we may be on the verge of collapse and the vast majority of Television News and Talk Radio programs are acting as if it’s business as usual.

There are two shows however that I suggest people watch and/or listen to if they want to get anywhere near the truth as to what’s going on. First, the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show. Yeah I know, he already has a listenership of some 22 million people, but something tells me his numbers are about to skyrocket from there. Let me share with you why I think this.

I have listened to Rush for a very long time. Do I listen every single day? No. Like most people, I have a life, and sometimes that life means not listening to a radio program. But I have listened to him enough to know his different moods, and I can tell you that the past 2 days Rush has been showing a side of him I have never seen or heard. It’s obvious to me that he’s deeply concerned about the future of our country, and that concern is showing up in his voice. With his constant searching for the truth, with this newly found emotion, I strongly urge people to tune in daily. Rush is definately an adult!

Next… Glenn Beck. Glenn is something of a breath of fresh air. He tries not to take himself too seriously and is not afraid to ask questions of his guests that others in the media would never think of asking. It’s his independent streak that makes him one to watch and listen to as we go through this crisis. In fact, he has been giving his listeners news and info that you NEVER hear about in the Mainstream Media. For up to the minute info on what;s really happening in our country, I suggest you tune in to his show. Especially his new TV show on Fox News. When the announcement comes that the people have taken over the government, I’m betting it will come from him. Glenn may not always act like an adult, but do not be fooled, he’s as scared and worried about our country as you and I are!


Reading For Adults

Yes, I’m sticking to an adult theme tonight.

Another excellent piece by Thomas Sowell

A Fatal Trajectory
Our nation’s course leads to a fate that would fully justify despair. img955562643458965dc1df06

By Thomas Sowell

An increasing number of recent letters and e-mails from readers strike a note, not only of unhappiness with the way things are going in our society, but of despair.

Those of us who are pessimists are only a step away from despair ourselves, so we may not be the ones to offer the best antidote to the view that America has seen its best days and is degenerating toward what may well be its worst. Yet what hope remains is no less precious nor any less worthy of being preserved.

First of all, the day-to-day life of most Americans in these times is nowhere near as dire as that of the band of cold, ragged, and hungry men who gathered around George Washington in the winter at Valley Forge, to which they had been driven by defeat after defeat.

Only the most reckless gambler would have bet on them to win. Only an optimist would have expected them to survive.

Against the background of those and other desperate times that this country has been through, we cannot whine today because the stocks in our pension plans have gone down or the inflated value that our houses had just a few years ago has now evaporated.

In another sense, however, looming ahead of us — and our children and their children — are dangers that can utterly destroy American society. Worse yet, there are moral corrosions within ourselves that weaken our ability to face the challenges ahead.

One of the many symptoms of this decay from within is that we are preoccupied with the pay of corporate executives while the leading terrorist-sponsoring nation on earth is moving steadily toward creating nuclear bombs.

Does anyone imagine that we will care what anyone’s paycheck is when we see an American city in radioactive ruins?

Yet the only serious obstacle to that happening is that the Israelis may disregard the lofty blather coming out of the White House and destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities before the Iranian fanatics can destroy Israel.

If by some miracle we manage to avoid the fatal dangers of a nuclear Iran, there will no doubt be others, including a nuclear North Korea.

Although, in some sense, the United States of America is still the strongest nation on earth militarily, that means absolutely nothing if our enemies are willing to die and we are not.

It took only two nuclear bombs to get Japan to surrender — and the Japanese of that era were far tougher than most Americans today. Just one bomb — dropped on New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles — might be enough to get us to surrender.

If we are still made of sterner stuff than it looks like, then it might take two or maybe even three or four nuclear bombs, but we will surrender.

It doesn’t matter if we retaliate and kill millions of innocent Iranian civilians — at least it will not matter to the fanatics in charge of Iran or the fanatics in charge of the international terrorist organizations that Iran supplies.

Ultimately, it all comes down to who is willing to die and who is not.

How did we get to this point? It was no single thing.

The dumbing down of our education, the undermining of moral values with the fad of “non-judgmental” affectations, the denigration of our nation through poisonous propaganda from the movies to the universities. The list goes on and on.

The trajectory of our course leads to a fate that would fully justify despair. The only saving grace is that even the trajectory of a bullet can be changed by the wind.

We have been saved by miraculous good fortune before in our history. The overwhelming military and naval expedition that Britain sent to New York to annihilate George Washington’s army was totally immobilized by a vast impenetrable fog that allowed the Americans to escape. That is how they ended up in Valley Forge.

In the World War II naval battle of Midway, if things had not happened just the way they did, at just the time they did, the American naval force would not only have lost, but could have been wiped out by the far larger Japanese fleet.

Over the years, we have had our share of miraculous deliverances. But that our fate today depends on yet another miracle is what can turn pessimism to despair.

Any Takers?

Some will argue that this man is the second most powerful person in the country. Is this the 'Hope' and 'Change' Obama promised? Grow-up Raum!

“Time to start acting like adults”


If you watched the video in the previous post you know that this was just one of the comments Alan Keyes made during his interview. He made a few profound comments during the interview, so some of you will have a favorite or two, mine just happened to be the one above. Off the top of my head, I can’t tell you why it’s my favorite, it just is. Let me try to work through this, live and in color…

I think this comment may have appealed to me because I get the impression that Alan is directing this comment to two particular groups of people in our country that seem to be destined to destroy us, lefty’s and politicians.

As far as Lefty’s go, I actually give them a slight break because many of them have been taught their whole lives that what they are doing, and how they think, is the right thing to do. Which of course, clear headed people know is pure, 100%, unadulterated, Bull shit. It basically comes down to… they just don’t know any better. The poor schleps.

It’s a completely different story with politicians. They know exactly what they are doing, and will do things that are in their best interest, not the best interest of the country or even their constituents.

The first group is a generational thing as much as it is a cultural thing. Getting this group to act like adults depends entirely on the leaders they follow. Soooo……

It would be good of Mr. Keyes if he could keep up the pressure… as long as he can get in front of a microphone and give the following message… “Our duly elected politicians have betrayed their oaths of office and should be reminded that they work for us (or else)”!

The “(or else)” was my imagination running wild. Please don’t contact Alan and give him crap over it. Calm down and act like adults.

One other thing… This whole notion of acting like adults will be hard for me to do. I’m not happy about what is happening to my country and I find it hard to behave like an adult at times like these. However, no matter how we may handle this crisis on a personal level, we must demand “acting like adults” from our elected officials. If they cannot control themselves, we then have the right and responsibility, to seperate them from their power.

Who’s More Popular Than Jesus?

23 02 2009

I cannot believe we as a society have sunk so low that it even crucifix_edited1crosses someone’s mind to do a Poll such as the one below.

Let me tell you a little secret… The final results of this poll were expected or it never would have made the light of day. Think about it, why the hell would anyone contract the Harris polling folks to do such a poll? And when you get a poll like this, it’s almost guaranteed they generally knew what the results would be, especially if they rigged who actually got polled.  

Also think on this… What has Obama done to be considered a hero? For those of us that see through all the crap, NOT A DAMN THING!

Poll: Obama More Popular Than Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
President Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.
Saturday, February 21, 2009

John Lennon once claimed the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. Now President Obama has evidence that he’s more popular than both.

Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.

Jesus came in second on a list that includes God, Mahtma Gandhi and George Washington.

Other historic or notable figures making the top 10 were Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa.

Participants named the heroes randomly instead of being shown or read a list of people to choose from. The poll was conducted online between January 12 and 19, 2009.

At the 16th spot in the poll, George Washington, Bill Clinton and Colin Powell tied.

Other politicians who made the poll’s top 25 include Hillary Clinton (12), FDR (13), Condoleezza Rice (12) and Sarah Palin (21).

God ranked 11th, between Mother Teresa and Hillary Clinton.

Of the multiple reasons participants gave to explain their choices of heroes, the ones most cited is, “Doing what’s right regardless of personal consequences” with 89 percent, “Not giving up until the goal is accomplished” with 83 percent and “Doing more than what other people expect of them,” with 82 percent. Also popular were “Overcoming adversity” and “Staying level-headed in a crisis.”

In the first Harris Poll asking this question in 2001, Jesus came in first, followed by the Rev. King, Powell, John F. Kennedy and Mother Teresea.

Obama joked last year at a roast that contrary to rumors, he was not born in a manger but on the planet Krypton. Apparently, Obama is even more popular than Superman, who didn’t make the cut.


Gun Rights For Dummies

I didn’t check, but there very well may be one of those cute little “for dummies” books on guns. If there isn’t one, there should be. In the meantime simply watch the video below. This woman does an excellent job at driving home the point of what our 2nd Amendment righst are for.

As an aside… this may be the first time any of you will see Sen. Schumer speechless.
