Here is a common sense approach to our financial woes. Which immediately tells me that the Obama administration will never do it.

Dr. Tiller A Christian Man

31 05 2009

I make a sick prediction…

As mentioned in my previous post, I do NOT condone the murder of Dr. Tiller, so the following comments are not meant to harm him, they are a condemnation of our Main Stream Media!

I have not seen any headlines yet that make this claim (about Tiller), but I know our disgusting media. The average story about anyone that is a Christian, or proposes to be a Christian because they attend a Christian Church, has a very negative story line. Almost all movies about Christianity made by Hollywood distort or outright lie about Christianity.

Whether it’s a blogger that thinks just because he/she calls themselves a Liberatarian it’s Ok, to denigrate Christians. Or maybe it’s a well known leftist non-believer that uses his space in the NYT’s Opinion Pages to mock and belittle Christians. Or maybe it’s just a beat reporter working for a lefty mainstream media outlet that wants to get noticed by his boss so he writes a dreadful peice on someone who is a Christian. The choices are endless and we have all seen what I’m talking about.

Now we have the unfortunate murder of Dr. Tiller, who happens to be a champion and hero for the left and pro-choice advocates, but with his death we will see a change.

The media is about to start wailing to the top of the NYT’s building in Manhattan, that the good Doctor was also a good Christian man. Now that a murderer of babies is murdered, his Christianity will be a thing of great beauty to the left.

If any of you see my prediction come true, please send the link.

Thank you!

Kill Baby Good – Kill Baby Killer Bad

31 05 2009

The White House issued a statement Sunday evening from President Obama on the murder of George Tiller. Here’s what the president said:

“I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.”

 

 

 I do NOT condone the murder of anyone, but to be perfectly honest with you, I will NOT shed a tear for the man that killed thousands of innocent babies. Why does the president NOT get outraged over the murders of millions of babies?

Republicans will make race an issue in Sotomayor confirmation

GOP conservatives didn’t hesitate to call the Latino Supreme Court nominee racist, but Republican senators were cautious. Now, the gloves are off.
By Peter Wallsten
12:35 PM PDT, May 31, 2009
Reporting from Washington — Since the introduction last week of Sonia Sotomayor, Republican senators wary of attacking the first Latino Supreme Court nominee have criticized fellow conservatives who have branded her a “racist” and even predicted a smooth confirmation.

But several of those same GOP senators, now reluctant to criticize conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich for their racially tinged critiques of Sotomayor, signaled today that they too are ready to make race a key focus of the nomination battle as they settle on a touchy question: Can a woman who says her views are shaped by her gender and ethnicity make fair decisions when it comes to white men?

“We need to know, for example, whether she’s going to be a justice for all of us or just a justice for a few of us,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, speaking on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.”

Only days earlier, Cornyn said in a radio interview that it was “terrible” for conservatives to be attacking Sotomayor as a “racist.” But today, the senator did not reiterate those sentiments and pledged that he and other Republican lawmakers would probe deeply into Sotomayor’s past comments and rulings to see if her heritage colors her ability to make fair decisions.

Cornyn’s comments were echoed in television appearances by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky; Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee; and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), another member of the panel that will conduct hearings.

At issue is a 2001 speech in which Sotomayor expressed hope that a “wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

The senators also promised today to question Sotomayor about a recent appellate ruling in which she rejected a discrimination claim by a white firefighter.

“By ignoring a genuine constitutional issue about reverse discrimination in the New Haven firefighter case, you know, the comments she made about the quality of her decisions being better than those of a white male — I mean, we need to go further into her record to see whether this is a trend or whether these are isolated and explainable events,” Cornyn said.

McConnell refused to repudiate Limbaugh, Gingrich and other conservatives who have called Sotomayor a racist, telling CNN that they were “entitled to their opinions.” The minority leader added that he had “better things to do than be the speech police over people who are going to have their views about a very important appointment.”

The senators’ comments today underscored how Sotomayor’s history of speaking out about her ethnicity had emerged as a surprisingly resonant issue in her confirmation right — one that is not necessarily welcomed by President Obama, who as the country’s first black president has tried to de-emphasize race as part of his efforts to win broad public appeal and avoid the marginalization that has defined many African American politicians in the past.

There is no indication that Sotomayor’s confirmation is in serious jeopardy. But in a sign of concern over the growing role of race in the debate, Obama on Friday took the unusual step of criticizing his nominee, saying she made a poor choice of words.

Obama Ignores Jihadist Training Camps in America

31 05 2009

 

As you are reading this, do you know that there are 31 jihadist  camps right here in the United States?

The camps provide weapons training and instruction in hate-America Wahhabism, the militant Muslim sect.  One camp in New York, called Islamberg, has 200 men. The camps are owned and operated by Sheikh Mubarik Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani, a known terrorist.

And the Obama administration is doing nothing about this! Instead, the Dept of Homeland Security has identified “extremists” such as Christians, veterans, and pro-lifers as potential terrorists.

Why Obama is losing The Third Jihad
Kevin McCullough
Sunday, May 31, 2009 – Townhall.com

http://townhall.com/Columnists/KevinMcCullough/2009/05/31/why_obama_is_losing_the_third_jihad?contact=true

As I pen these words not more than sixty miles north of where I sit, a radical Islamist breeding ground, Islamberg, N.Y., is churning out hate, weapons training, and radical Wahabi indoctrination. To date President Barack Obama’s administration has done zero about it.

It is imperative to understand that there are thirty additional compounds to this one that are spread throughout the nation in blue states like New York and red states like Virginia. And in each place the residents have been observed or overheard testing explosives, firing weapons, and engaged in the same type of activities as what those who have abandoned Islamberg have confessed to.

Cutting to the chase let it be plainly said, there are thirty-one bases of operation in which strongly questionable use of weapons and militant jihad are being taught and trained, here on U.S. soil. They are actively supplying clerics to serve in the prison chaplain systems across several states, and in many instances those who do are also actively recruiting new members for the future Islamic State of North America. Their stated goal on one of the chaplain’s websites is for that state to be in existence by 2050.

Since the compound, known as Islamberg, has more than 200 residents, and since it took less than ten percent of that to kill over 3000 Americans on 9.11.2001, we would assume our nation’s authorities would shut it down.

Of course the whole “shutting entire compounds down” thing is a bit tricky for this President. On the campaign trail he pledged to do as much for Gitmo, a base he now supposedly controls. Yet increasingly he appears to be leaning towards leaving it open for some time to come.

I guess it would also be of comfort for the administration to square with the American people that Islamberg is owned and operated by Sheikh Mubarik Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani a known terrorist who currently funds and owns all 31 of the camps known as “Al Fuqra.” The Pakistani terror leader remains out of the nation, but regularly provides instructions for those who operate these bases as to how to combat the attempt by mere local law enforcement, to turn our laws on their ears, and to insure that they never gain legal access to the compounds.

Federal authorities have yet to address these compounds with any serious attention.

It is not surprising then that the makers of a new film “The Third Jihad” are so obsessed with letting Americans know what is happening, behind our backs, down the streets, and in the open rural areas we love. Enemies of America are seeking our destruction. The compounds however present only part of the challenge. A much larger one has been unearthed by the FBI but little has yet been done to combat it.

Through a series of violent protests in Western Europe over things like the Allah cartoons, journalists, media outlets, and eventually whole government systems began to make compromises to the protestors. In each case free speech was allowed to have limitations placed upon it, and in some cases such as Great Britain justice in muslim neighborhoods is being wholesale exported to Sharia law systems.

In America while hundreds of thousands of muslims would argue they have no desire to see Sharia law become the way of American society, nearly 25% of those same muslims say they do believe that taking the life of the innocent is allowable to perform the will of Allah–their bastardized substitution for the God of the Bible. And honor killings are on a sharp increase amongst American muslim families.

“The Third Jihad” is an important film because the host of the documentary is an American muslim, and one of the extremely few who has had the courage to speak out against the violent radical elements in his faith community in America.

Every American needs to understand the patient persistence with which the Islamic State of North America is being built with. Every American needs to understand that the U.S. government is at this moment asleep to the concern of the problem that is festering here.

And with President Obama’s plan to cut intelligence, defense, and national security spending we’ve a very real reason to be concerned.

This is especially true given the boldness with which others such as the tyrannical terrorists in Iran, and the crazed and extremely dangerous nuclear power of North Korea have dusted any concern with America aside while Obama is at the helm.

In my city just two weeks ago four men who had been recruited by elements of Sheikh Gilani’s crew were caught attempting to place what they believed was a dangerous amount of C4 and a missile they wished to use to bring down an airliner, and blow up a prominent Jewish landmark.

The threat is real friends, “The Third Jihad” documents it all, and every American should view it and pass on their copy to their neighbor. (www.TheThirdJihad.com)

Perhaps one could even make its way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, who just this week at a burger joint learned about a whole wing of intelligence operations that he had never heard of before.

Trust me, our enemies knew who they were, why didn’t President Obama?





Is This Racist Logic?

31 05 2009

 This writer seems to be doing more harm than good. You don’t curb racism by creating different levels and special categories of racism. It’s almost as if he’s bragging… “my racism is more important than your racism because we were lynched and you were not”. Well, what if your anger over the crimes of the past creates a “new racism” and it too gets to the point of lynchings. Is this what you want?

I pray that it’s NOT what you want.

Old white guys can be a funny bunch, can’t they? The same anti-same-sex marriage, anti-affirmative action cadre can flower into the biggest supporters of “equality” the minute they get a whiff of minority empowerment.

To that end, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is accusing Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor of being a “new racist” because of a line she delivered in a speech back in 2001. Sotomayor is quoted as saying: “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Reasonable.

Unless you’re, like, an aging geezer peaking out of your window at those scary dark-skinned people who just bought the house across the street. Then all your shriveled up little ears hear is a supposed corollary to Sotomayor’s statement which is — according to Newt — “My experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman” to which he added, “New racism is no better than old racism.”

By the way, thanks for coming to the party late on that denouncement of “old racism.”

But here’s the deal, Newt, your “new racism” isn’t like “old racism” ’cause “old racism” tended to involve things like shackles, and whips and the Middle Passage. Attack dogs, Billy clubs and water hoses. Burning crosses and lynch mobs. Confederate flags, liquor and screams of “Kill the (fill in pejorative here)!” “Old racism” was red lining and segregating and “whites only” drinking fountains, schools and country clubs. It was The Dred Scott Decision, Executive Order 9066, and the Trail of Tears. “Old racism” was a blind eye and “all deliberate speed” that wasn’t deliberate or particularly speedy and nonsense about the sanctity of marriage which was crap when it was applied to “race laws” and is crap when applied to “one man/one woman.”

“New Racism?” That’s apparently a Latina openly talking about how “more often than not” she would like to avoid the “conclusions” that allowed “old racism” to thrive. That’s a long way from getting your ass beat for trying to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge so maybe your kids might one day enjoy the right to vote.

The fact that Newt would even attempt to compare “old racism” and “new racism” only proves Sotomayor correct in saying that experience based on fact is very different than that based on perception.

Newt, seriously, anytime you want to swap racisms give me a call.
