Muslims: 'Wipe Christianity from face of earth'

by: Michael Carl
A Muslim group has released its plan to “wipe Christianity from the face of the earth,” Islamize the West and establish an Islamic system of world government – placing those who resist “under a police state.”
The 23-page booklet, “The Global Islamic Civilization: The Power of a Nation Revived,” is the brainchild of the United Muslim Nations International, a group led by Sheik Farook al-Mohammedi. The document outlines a plan for Muslim world domination and the re-establishment of the Caliphate.
Al-Mohammedi leaves no doubt about his view of Christianity.
“Christianity should be destroyed and wiped from the face of the earth,” al-Mohammedi said. “It is an evil demonic and Anti-Christ system, all Christians are in complete Ignorance.”
The sheik includes a veiled threat in his remarks.
“Islamic Power has returned upon the face of the earth and the Revived Global Caliphate has set eyes on the West to once and for all rid the world of Christianity and there is nothing you can do about it,” al-Mohammedi said.

He makes his objective clear.
“I have pledged and made a firm promise to the Caliphate of the United Muslim Nations International organization that I will do my utmost to Islamize all of the West within a short period of time,” al-Mohammedi said.
Al-Mohammedi’s views are reflected in the book, which calls on all Muslims to, “listen attentively (to the teaching in the booklet) so they may be able to feel the spirituality of an Islamic revival within themselves and they will be able to achieve the much needed upliftment and also a means in gaining the closeness of Allah Subahanhu wa-ta’ ala.”
The document is a clear statement on the organization’s objective. Page 2 explains that the emergence of an Islamic Caliphate is the ultimate goal of all Muslims.
“Firstly we will deal with the matter of the Global Islamic Civilization, its honored status, the unrivaled Universal Brotherhood and Sisterhood of the Muslim Ummah,” the document states.
“Islam the only true religion enjoins upon mankind Total Submission to the will of Allah, which means that you are to live a life that is Totally Devoted to the Almighty Allah by serving Him in the manner which He has prescribed for us through the example of the Holy Prophet Mohammed Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam,” the booklet said.

Al-Mohammedi declares that Western resistance to the worldwide Islamic movement is futile.
“Today as I breathe the air of our newly found Islamic State of America before my trip this week to Eurabia I leave behind me an Internationalist Islamic Ideology which will be the future of America and Europe Inshallah,” he said.
“None will resist, you will submit! Islam will conquer the hearts of all christiandom, this is a definite reality. Every government has surrendered to the Revived Global Caliphate and those nations who resist will be placed under a police state within their realm.”

Al-Mohammedi added that non-Muslims have no place in his vision for the world.
“The Dhimmis have no empire and no right to rule anywhere in the world. Earth belongs to us, all of it,” he said.
Al-Mohammedi didn’t respond to WND’s subsequent requests for an interview.
WND previously reported that al-Mohammedi complained about WND’s reporting and threatened to shut down WND.
“‘If you do not comply then WND and it’s (sic) employees will become targets for our UIA agents who will eliminate you within America,’ said an email today from Faarooq al Mohammedi, who has said he is working on behalf of a Muslim organization called United Muslim Nations International organization,” the WND story said.
Islam analyst, WND columnist and Atlas Shrugs publisher Pamela Geller said the document has one aim: global Islamic supremecy.
“This document is dedicated to a ‘revival of Islamic culture,’ by which is meant a restoration of ‘the Global Islamic Civilization, its honored status, the unrivaled Universal Brotherhood and Sisterhood of the Muslim Ummah,’” Geller said.
She also noted that the booklet is completely in line with the stated goals of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“This refers, of course, to the restoration of the caliphate, the pan-national unity of the Muslims (which is also the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood),” she said.
Geller added that even though there are references to personal faithfulness in the document, it’s really a battle cry.

“So while the document speaks largely of matters of individual piety, marriage law, etc., it actually amounts to a call to warfare against and subjugation of non-Muslims under the Sharia,” Geller said.
She added, “In Islamic law only the caliph is authorized to declare and wage offensive jihad against infidel states. If the caliphate is restored, the present jihads worldwide will look like a time of piece compared to the wars that will be unleashed.”
American Enterprise Institute Middle East analyst Michael Rubin agreed, confirming, “the document is very much in line with jihadi philosophy.”
Islam analyst and Jihad Watch publisher Robert Spencer noted, “The document is pretty standard. However, it’s somewhat incoherently presented.”

Israel, Iran already at war?

by: Michael Carl
Though it might seem far from Jerusalem, a border battle in Africa, some analysts warn, is the site of a proxy war being waged between Israel and Iran.
Middle East analyst Joseph Puder explains the boundary area between Sudan and the recently formed South Sudan has become a battleground for Jerusalem and Tehran to quietly exchange blows.
“Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, eager to win over the Sunni-Arab world, has been more than happy to comply and provide Khartoum with arms, ideology and strengthened economic ties, including oil exploration,” Puder writes.
“For Tehran, Bashir’s Sudan is a major Shiite Islam success story,” Puder writes. “Sudan is both an Arab and Sunni-Muslim [nation] previously allied with the West (under President Jafaar Numeiri). Omar Bashir transformed Sudan into an Islamic theocracy allied with Iran and turned it into a base of operations for Tehran in Africa and the Middle East (supplying arms to Hamas in Gaza through Sudan).”

Meanwhile, a former CIA station chief who asked not to be named says Israel is also invested in the region, creating a possible scenario in Sudan that pits Islam versus the West.
“The Muslim countries of the Organization of the Islamic Conference and Iran are indeed providing financial and military support to Bashir’s regime,” the CIA station chief said. “[And while] the West is essentially doing ‘lip service’ to the newly independent South Sudan, the only nation that is putting action behind its words is Israel.”
The Times of Israel reported earlier this year that South Sudan looks to Israel as a “role model.”
“South Sudan’s fondness for Israel extends to the diplomatic arena,” the Times of Israel report stated, “where the two countries have been building strategic ties in a relationship that long preceded the founding of South Sudan last July.”
“They see in us kind of a role model in how a small nation surrounded by enemies can survive and prosper, and they would like to imitate that,” said incoming Israeli Ambassador to South Sudan Haim Koren, according to the Times.
American Enterprise Institute Middle East analyst Michael Rubin pointed out that Ahmadinehad has a vested interest in pestering Israel wherever possible.

“His interest is to muck things up where he can,” Rubin said. “He does similarly in Senegal and in St. Vincent.”
Yet Rubin suggested Israel’s most significant long-term strategic security is elsewhere.
“They (Iran and Israel) may be on opposite sides (with Sudan and South Sudan), but Egypt, Syria, Lebanon would be what counts,” Rubin said.
“What happens in Southern Sudan isn’t of existential interest to Israel; what happens in southern Lebanon is,” Rubin said.
Rubin adds that he doesn’t believe Egypt and Syria have much of an interest in al-Bashir or South Sudan. Yet, some type of conflict is still possible.
“Even if they (Egypt and Syria) fall on other sides, it will be a side show. Unfortunately, a very brutal side show,” Rubin said.
Rubin believes ultimately the biggest player in the region may be China, and where they invest their money because of commercial interests.
Christian Solidarity International, USA President John Eibner, however, says while the proxy battle scenario is possible, the problem is in Khartoum’s side of the equation. Eibner doesn’t think al-Bashir would risk associating with Shia Muslims.
“The analysis does not address Sudan’s relations with the rest of the Sunni world, or its intelligence-sharing arrangements with Washington,” Eibner said. “It is hard to believe that the latter does not also help America’s allies, including Israel.

“By focusing exclusively on the relationships between Iran and Sudan, without putting it in the broader context, it is possible to overstate the case,” Eibner said. “If Bashir were to forge a strong alliance with Shia Iran, he would end up in the same boat as Assad in Syria, with the United States and the Sunni Arab world actively seeking his overthrow.”
Still, Rubin says the Sudan scenario is worth watching.
“I’d keep an eye on what is going on between the Middle East and the Sudans,” Rubin said.

Janet Napolitano on the Trail of Global Warming

by: Tad Cronn
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is the Inspector Clouseau of national law enforcement, albeit without the redeeming charm.
Kicking off her tenure with the issuance of a report linking military veterans, Tea Party members and other everyday conservatives to terrorism, saying “the system worked” when the underwear bomber nearly succeeded in blowing up a plane on Christmas 2009, presiding over TSA’s “third base” program of airport security, “enhancing” our homeland security by refusing to enforce our borders — Napolitano has racked up quite a record as one of the most clueless busybodies ever to hold the power to make people disappear.
Which is why it makes me more than a little nervous when the clue master starts hinting that she’s going after that fiery phantom called global warming when temperatures for the last decade show what many scientists believe is a cooling trend.
While discussing the wildfires in Colorado this week and some of the hot, wild weather in parts of the country, Napolitano opined, “there’s a pattern here.”

Yes, Janet, there is a pattern: Hot + Windy = Big Fire Hazard.
Very good.
Clouseau got on the case when a logic-challenged reporter asked her if the wildfires were linked to global warming.
“You have to look at climate change over a period of years, not just one summer,” Napolitano answered. “You could always have one abnormal summer. But when you see one after another after another then you can see, yeah, there’s a pattern here.”
I remember when I was a lad in preschool and my teacher (who was beautiful and the first woman I ever asked to marry me, but whose name I have now completely forgotten) taught us a little rhyme about  the seasons so we would understand how weather changed throughout the year.

Apparently, Napolitano can’t recall summers ever being hot when she was young.
Living in California, I’ve seen my share of wildfires, and every time they get out of hand here (usually around September), there’s always some mental giant in the media or in government trying to link the fires to global warming. As far as “abnormal” summers go, in this part of the country, it’s been very mild so far this year, and around the rest of the globe there’s no massive increase in temperatures, either. In other words, there’s not really a pattern of the sort Napolitano is looking for.
But common sense never did stop a government official from trying to fight the weather, and Inspector Clouseau is no different.
Asked if the government had plans to combat the climate, Napolitano said, “I think that we are preparing. We understand and we are seeing the changing weather patterns. We are seeing right now in what already has been a difficult summer. … So yes, we incorporate some of that into our planning.”

I shouldn’t be surprised, I suppose. King Obama did accept his nomination famously with a line about how he would slow the rise of the seas and “heal” the planet. I should expect no less arrogance from his underlings.
Scientists in Britain recently have been studying evidence of a huge swath of land called Doggerland, that once linked Britain with the rest of Europe. It stretched from Scotland to Denmark and was inhabited as recently as 6500 B.C. but became submerged. It’s only one of many such lost underwater kingdoms around the world.
It should give hope to Atlantis hunters, but it should also serve to underscore the futility of human efforts against nature.
It’s a lesson our government desperately needs to learn.

Illinois School District Votes to Remove Gay Curriculum From Elementary Schools

by: Giacomo
Parents, do you know what your children are being taught in elementary school?
Have you ever heard of Ready, Set, Respect!?  It is an elementary school kit produced by GLSEN – Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.  They promote the curriculum as an anti-bullying program designed to help school administrators and teachers teach their students to all get along and to stop bullying based on differences.  However, if you take time to look into the program, it is also designed to promote a homosexual lifestyle as being normal and acceptable.

Some parents in the Erie Community Unit School District complained to school officials about the gay curriculum being used with their children in the local schools.  After looking into the complaint, the school board voted 5-2 to stop using the tool kit in the district’s elementary school.  However, they will continue to use the gay curriculum for grades 6-12.
Superintendent Bradley Cox explained:
“Teaching diversity, tolerance, and anti-bullying to elementary schools was always done before without using GLSEN materials.”
Alliance Defense Fund attorney Jeremy Tedesco took the move as a positive step in protecting young kids from being unnecessarily indoctrinated with sexually explicit material.  He commented that:
“Public schools should not be coerced by outside groups into indoctrinating students into homosexual behavior by exposing them to inappropriate sexual materials.  Schools are supposed to be places of learning, not places where schools push propaganda on students.”
I’m surprised that the school board took this action as generally they only respond to the complaints of minority groups like gay activists.  Now the parents of older kids need to start complaining to the school district about the use of the gay curriculum for grades 6-12.  The younger students may be spared, but only until they reach 6th grade where they are still very impressionable and easily brainwashed by the perverse and sinful propaganda being pedaled as just anti-bullying material.

Do We Need and Should We Start a Second American Revolution?

by: Jerry Bowyer
 Earlier this week I attempted to ignite a debate (not a revolt) about the State of America now compared to 236 years ago when we abolished the authority of the British government over our affairs.
If we take a WWJD approach (What Would Jefferson Do?), we find that the preconditions for revolt are:
The government becomes destructive of the proper ends of government which are the protection of life, liberty and property and/or pursuit of prosperity. This does not mean that a government should be abolished if it fails to perfectly protect these foundational rights. Such a principle would lead to chaos since no government can possibly protect us perfectly.
It does not even mean that we may abolish a government if it attacks those rights. The government must become destructive of those rights, which means that IN GENERAL and ON BALANCE the government destroys those rights more than it secures them.

After all, the government that the founders created was not a perfect Jeffersonian paradise. It permitted national deficits which Jefferson and others believed violated the liberty of future generations. The government founded a national bank funded with taxpayer dollars which the Jeffersonians believed was an exercise of power not enumerated by the Constitution, and therefore a violation of the limits which were placed on the government in order to protect the taxpayers. But Jefferson did not call for an armed revolution against the nascent republic. He even participated in the compromise which led to the creation of the bank.

All governments that have ever existed have sometimes protected and sometimes attacked the foundational rights of life, liberty and property. What triggers the right of abolition according to the Declaration of Independence is whether, all things considered, the government is a destroyer rather than a protector of those rights.
But even if the government goes so far as to become a net destroyer of liberty, even that is not sufficient logical grounds on which to abolish it. If the point of a declaration of independence from a government is to end the condition of vanishing liberty, it follows inevitably that such a declaration would only be advisable if the new government were to be a better protector of our liberties. My friend, Glenn Reynolds — law professor and Instapundit — says that revolutions are like throws of the dice. You just don’t know for sure what you are going to get.

This is not a trivial point and the many revolts since Independence Day 1776 tell us that the odds for improvement are actually quite poor. After all, we the people pretty much get the government we ask for. The policies we have in place now have not been imposed by some foreign army; they been imposed on us by us. What reason do we have to believe that we would impose something better on ourselves after years of armed conflict than we are imposing on ourselves now? Do revolutions or civil wars (and revolutions really are civil wars) make us calmer, wiser, more compassionate people?

And is it worth the cost? Such wars are incredibly bloody affairs. I think that few revolutionaries truly count the ‘transaction cost’ of trading one regime for another. The genuinely evil ones don’t even try to. We did this twice in our history. First the colonies dissolved their relationship with the Crown. This was a eucatastrophe[1] ending much better for the human race than anyone really had a right to expect.
The second revolt was a deformed grandchild of the first in which the southern states hid behind the language of freedom in order to avoid taxes which were constitutionally imposed, preserve the institution of chattel slavery and make way for dreams of a Southern Continental empire. The exercise ended badly for the instigators and was awesomely painful even for the victors. Does anyone seriously believe that we are a people more ready to rebuild than that generation? Do you see any leader on the horizon more able to bind up the wounds of the nation than Lincoln?

The founders believed that what happened here was some sort of historical miracle and it’s easy to understand why. The preconditions for success were uniquely strong. Revolutions usually don’t succeed because they destroy the society in which they occur; tearing down the old social order and forcing a new one to revolve up into its place (hence the word ‘revolution’). That why it almost never works.
When Mel Brookes has Count Demoney telling the king that ‘the peasants are revolting,’ the king looks at them and agrees. Classical literary references aside, Brookes is right. The revolutions are ugly and the results are even uglier.
But here, we did not have a revolution. Most of the founders studiously avoided the use of that word. We had a war for independence in which local units of government dissolved their ties with a distant tyrant. We didn’t have to tear our country apart, just tear it apart from Great Britain. Ours was not a rising up of the downtrodden or the debtor class as so many of the ancient Greek and Roman revolutions had been. It was not a fight of the bottom against those above them. It was a fight of the middle, which had been functioning as the de facto governing class of the nation for generations before.

It wasn’t a rabble revolution. Deriders in England called it things like the ‘shopkeepers revolt’ and the Presbyterian rebellion. It came from a law abiding class of people who put their arguments in terms of ‘the ancient rights of Englishman’ not the revolutionary utopian terms like for example the instigators of the peasants revolt in Martin Luther’s Germany.
The amazing success of our effort has inspired many a delusional imitator who believed that all you had to do was kill a king to achieve heaven on earth. Almost none of them have succeeded.
Left-wing dreams of people’s revolutions were at best delusional, and given the results of France in 1789 and Russia in 1917, such dreams are no longer bemusingly foolish; they are evil. But conservative ‘exodus’ and secession dreams seem only a little better. After all, we’re supposed to know better. We’re the ideology which is in touch with reality.

School retreats spotlight 'kinky sex,' plastic genitals

by: Chelsea Schilling
Men pretending to have homosexual intercourse, discussions of “kinky sex,” hats with plastic testicles and cross-dressing: It was all part of an official California public-school district retreat, a lawsuit says.
School administrators from the Lake Elsinore Unified School District have participated in the annual retreats since 2008, according to court documents.
The Press-Enterprise, a newspaper in Riverside, Calif., reported that an assistant principal has had enough, claiming she was the victim of sexual harassment, discrimination and a hostile work environment.
Kathryn Jones, 42, said the retreats were not optional; administrators were required to attend the events held at Coachella Valley hotels, where district leaders allowed and participated in the risqué behavior.

“You just shake your head at something like this,” Andrew Rosenberry, Jones’ attorney, told the paper. “The conduct is so outrageous.”
According to the Press-Enterprise, district spokesman Mark Dennis declined to comment, but school-board member Jeanie Corral confirmed that she had witnessed the events described in the lawsuit. However, she said she was surprised by the allegations because the incidents didn’t upset her.
“There was nothing that I found offensive,” Corral said.
But Jones told the Press-Enterprise the sexual humor at the retreats was distasteful.
“It doesn’t belong in a workplace,” she said.
According to the lawsuit, Jones complained about the retreats several times – and then she was demoted in 2011 from associate principal at Temescal Canyon High School to assistant principal at Luiseno Elementary School. Jones, a lesbian, also claims discrimination was a factor in her demotion.

The report states that Jones” supervisor at Temescal Canyon had given her outstanding evaluations and called her the “moral compass” of the school. After she sued, she was offered her current position as assistant principal at Elsinore High School in Wildomar.
In 2008, Jones claimed the retreat featured cross-dressing skits.
In 2010, the “Wizard of Oz” theme required administrators to dress as characters from the story – including male Assistant Superintendent Alain Guevara dressing as Dorothy.
In 2011, male district employees pretended to have sex with one another and act surprised that they had been caught in a video shown at the retreat, the lawsuit alleges.
According to the Press-Enterprise report, “Another video showed Guevara lying on a table with someone pretending to insert a probe for a colonoscopy, Jones said. The video then cut to footage from an actual colonoscopy, she said.”

Former superintendent Frank Passarella, now retired, reportedly announced the video at the 2011 retreat by telling administrators “everyone should know that it is all in fun.”
According to the complaint, Guevara told district employees to draw shapes and lines that were used to determine whether each attendee liked “kinky sex.”
The newspaper notes that attorneys provided a sexual harassment training workshop after the “kinky sex” incident, but they joked about the exercise.
Jones said the retreats also involved hazing incidents meant to humiliate new hires, including mandatory “rookie hats” – some with vulgar decorations.

“Before last year’s retreat, Jones said, Passarella emailed a list of employees who would be required to wear the hats. Jones” name was on it, she said, because she had been demoted. She objected beforehand but was told wearing the hat was not optional,” the Press-Enterprise reported.
“Jones said she got into a tearful confrontation with Passarella at the retreat in which he said wearing the hats was part of the district culture. He ultimately backed down, Jones said. She never saw the hat they wanted her to wear, Jones said, but another employee’s hat had a roll of toilet paper on it, along with Tums and Imodium bottles.”
According to the complaint, Guevara wore a hat featuring underwear and plastic testicles.
But school-board member Corral told the newspaper the events were meant to provide “humorous relief” from administrators’ daily work and help them get acquainted with one another. She also claimed the retreats were not mandatory.
“No one was going to be singled out for retribution or criticism,” she said. “No one held a gun to anybody’s head. It was no big deal.”

Farah: 'Spy drone' buzzed my home

by: Chelsea Schilling

His private property was scouted by a drone that sounded “like a lawnmower buzzing over my head,” WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah revealed on the July 5 Alex Jones Show.
“I’m taking my dog for a walk and guess what I see right over the tree line right above my head is a drone,” he said. “I don’t live in the city, I don’t live in a populated area, I live in one of the most rural places you could possibly live in Northern Virginia and there could only be one thing that this drone was spying on and that would be me, that would be my property because there’s just nothing else around except woods and deer.”
Farah joked that the drone might have been spying on him because he qualifies as a “terrorist” in a new Department of Homeland Security report that defines “extreme right-wing” terrorists as Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty.” 

“We’ve got our work cut out for us. More and more, I realize that the liberty lovers out there really have to stick together,” he urged. “Fundamentally, we’ve got to stick together, or we’re going to hang together, as our founders said.
“Look – this is the first term – if he’s re-elected it’s going to be war – they will be at war – we will be hunted down like dogs, keep that in mind, that’s what the stakes are,” warned Farah.
In the 45-minute interview, Jones and Farah discussed some of the leading issues of the day.
First, Farah called the massive government control in America “fascism.”
“When you’ve got major corporations in bed with government, there’s only one name for that,” he said. “Look it up in the dictionary. There’s only one name for that, and it’s fascism. The trend is to a worldwide fascist cabal.”
He championed free enterprise, freedom of speech and “a healthy and lively debate on issues that there are no sacred cows.”
Then, near the 19:00 mark, Farah called “Fast & Furious” one of “the biggest government scandals I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime.”
President Obama is guilty of “treason of the highest order” for his role in the scandal, Farah declared.

“It seems more and more clear every day that this was a government operation with the motivation behind it to disarm Americans and to make the case against individual ownership of firearms for Americans,” he explained. “And the sneaky way they did that was to show how nasty these guns are because they’re too available in America, and we let them go over the border to Mexico, and they wind up in the hands of drug cartels and people get murdered. The scenario worked out just the way they planned it, except for the fact that it blew up in their face, to a certain extent, because the American people found out about it.”
Farah exclaimed, “You talk about impeachable offenses? This is beyond impeachable! This is treason of the highest order. … This goes right to the very top.”
However, he noted that justice appears to be held up.

“They’re caught, but what’s happening?” Farah asked. “This whole congressional investigation, to me, is taking way too long. We’ve got an election coming up in November. When are we going to see some justice done here? When are we going to see some results from all this?”
Regarding Chief Justice John Roberts’ surprising opinion in the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, Farah explained:
“John Roberts was never, in my opinion, a Scalia, an Alito or a Thomas in his view. He’s always been more of an establishment Republican. I never had high expectations from him, but I thought that if there was going to be a problem in this case that it was more likely to be Kennedy than Roberts. … Who would have expected that we’d get Kennedy, and we’d lose Roberts? I don’t think anybody saw that coming.”

However, Farah noted that reports indicate Roberts’ opinion was originally closer to that of the conservative justices, but he was somehow “seduced by the liberals to go with them.”
“This happens!” he declared. “When you’re in Washington too long, it happens!”
Nonetheless, Farah said he has faith in a “healthy segment of the American people who are not going to take this stuff lying down.”
Regarding the tea-party movement’s efforts during this turbulent time, Farah exclaimed, “One thing I can’t stand about this tea-party thing is, why are there all these different tea-party groups? Why don’t they get together and stop competing with one another? Have a convention! Get it together, guys!  What are the top 10 most important issues? Let’s focus on those! What’s happened since 2010 – when the tea party really awakened this country and seemed to be shaking things up?”
Toward the end of the interview, Farah urged Americans to resist all government “attempts to control us.”
“It’s everything our Founding Fathers fought against,” he warned. “We’ve got to be like our Founding Fathers all over again. The only question on my mind is whether we have the fearlessness, the courage and the conviction that they had to do that.”

Obama told to back off U.N. gun treaty

by: Jack Minor
Over 100 members of Congress appear to share the concerns of a former Army general who has sounded the alarm over efforts by the Obama Administration to push through the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, or ATT.
As WND reported, retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin earlier this year, in a video in which he claimed Obama was leading America down the path of a quiet, Marxist revolution, blasted the ATT, also known as the small arms treaty, saying it would regulate private gun ownership.
“There has been a decree by the administration by the president and the secretary of state saying that our president will sign the United Nations small arms treaty, which is about how we will buy sell and control individual private weapons,” Boykin warned. “That means the United Nations, an international body will decide how you and I as Americans can buy and sell our weapons, how we control those weapons, who is authorized to have those weapons and where they are. This is a dangerous trend.”

Now some 130 lawmakers, consisting of mostly Republicans, but also including Democrats such as Reps. Jason Altmire, Sanford Bishop, Jerry Costello, Danny Davis and Peter DeFazio sent off a letter to the Obama administration opposing the treaty.
The letter states that Congress is concerned the treaty could “pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights.”
The letter goes on to declare that the Second Amendment guarantees the “fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms” and the U.S. has no business supporting a treaty that infringes on the Bill of Rights.
The ATT would specifically require signatories to identify and trace, in “a timely and reliable manner,” illicit small arms and light weapons. The information would be required to be submitted to the United Nations.
The treaty was opposed by the Bush administration, but President Obama’s administration reversed direction on the treaty. U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said the United States would support talks towards ratifying the treaty.
While the treaty is still in a draft stage, the United Nations is beginning a month-long process beginning this week to craft the final details of the treaty.

Supporters say the treaty is necessary to prevent rogue countries from being able to purchase guns from arms dealers. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said concerns about the treaty restricting individual rights are “misplaced” and that he supported its goals.
Critics of the treaty have long maintained that the treaty would lead to mandatory registration of all firearms and every sale; even those between individuals.
The congressional letter also takes issue with the “moral equivalence” of comparing America to totalitarian regimes and calls upon the administration to break consensus and reject the treaty. It goes on to remind the president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that “the Constitution gives the power to regulate international commerce to Congress alone.”

This is not the first time Congress has sent letters to the administration opposing the small arms treaty. Last year, Congress sent off a similar letter addressing many of the same concerns. This letter was signed by 12 Democrats who joined 45 Republicans in opposing the treaty.
The letter stated, “The Arms Trade Treaty must not in any way regulate the domestic manufacture, possession or sale of firearms or ammunition.”
It went on to state, “The establishment of any sort of international gun registry that could impede upon the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners is a non-starter.”
While that letter was been touted in the mainstream media as an indication that Democrats are now opposing gun control, some pointed out that the letter actually proved the opposite. The Senators stated they support the general concept of the treaty but believe countries such as the U.S. should have “exclusive authority to regulate arms within their own borders.”

Critics point out that this statement indicates that the senators believe firearms registration is acceptable provided it is initiated by individual governments.

FEDS Would Think Founding Fathers Were Terrorists

by: Tim Brown
So you are a lover of liberty and you are also a possible terrorist according to the Department of Homeland Security. DHS has released a document that was prepared to give the locations and causes of domestic terrorism and in doing so they have labeled every freedom loving American as a potential terrorist.
The Report was put together by The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). According to the document they are “tasked by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate with using state-of-the-art theories, methods, and data from the social and behavioral sciences to improve understanding of the origins, dynamics, and social and psychological impacts of terrorism.”
The document claims that “More than 2,600 terrorist events occurred in the United States between 1970 and 2008.”

It does mention, “The importance of understanding terrorism in the United States assumed heightened prominence in the wake of 9-11,” and yet says, “surprisingly little is known about general patterns of terrorist attacks in the United States, including where attacks are most likely to occur.” I would venture to guess that the WTC was attacked on several occasions. I would also venture to guess that the same major cities in the U.S. are the same ones over and over that are the main targets. On top of this, in many cases chatter and other information has crossed the desks of those with the responsibility to protect from such attacks and they did nothing. September 11 is a perfect example of looking back and seeing they had all the data necessary to catch the evildoers, but did not. In fact, many of those here should have been deported under law for expired visas.
The “hot spots” for terrorism, according to the report, identified 65 counties, out of a possible 3,143 counties in the U.S. Fortunately for me, my county was not identified.

What is most curious is who is being defined as a terrorist. Many of the founding fathers would fall right into this definition. They are those that are “extreme right-wing” or those who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority” or even those “reverent of individual liberty.”
So just how does DHS define an “extreme right-wing” person as a potential terrorist?
Extreme Right-Wing: groups that believe that one’s personal and/or national “way of life” is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent (for some the threat is from a specific ethnic, racial, or religious group), and believe in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism. Groups may also be fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), anti-global, suspicious of centralized federal authority, reverent of individual liberty, and believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.”

Ok, from what I’ve read in many of the comments section all of the readers of this site would be considered a potential terrorist along with this author. I have absolutely no intention of doing anything remotely close to terrorism and yet this document claims that because of things I firmly believe in, DHS says I am in essence a possible terrorist, which actually questions my patriotism. Frankly there are more patriots that will read this article than there are working in the entire Obama administration.
The document also identifies religion as a possible culprit.

Religious: groups that seek to smite the purported enemies of God and other evildoers, impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists), forcibly insert religion into the political sphere (e.g., those who seek to politicize religion, such as Christian Reconstructionists and Islamists), and/or bring about Armageddon (apocalyptic millenarian cults; 2010: 17). For example, Jewish Direct Action, Mormon extremist, Jamaat-al-Fuqra, and Covenant, Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA) are included in this category.

Well Islamists don’t even need anything said here because the attacks we know of have been, for the most part, Muslims. While I realize there are extremists in all sorts of false religions, I don’t recall Mormons flying planes into buildings. I know Christian Reconstructionists do believe in being politically active simply because of the belief that the gospel of Jesus Christ is to be brought to bear on any place that needs redemption from sin and both government and politics are areas filled with sin that need to be dealt with. However, to engage in terrorism to advance that ideology would be to deny the very principles of the Lord Jesus.
What I find very curious in the religious section is the brief mention above of Islamists. Seems to be they are the prime culprits in what has been labeled terrorism. In fact, I think the term terrorism doesn’t seem to imply very much. They are simply murderers, evil doers, or those that destroy property and should be treated as such. “Terrorism” has become sort of a open ended term and is really no longer useful.
 Left wingers aren’t left out of the equation either. The document claims:

Extreme Left-Wing: groups that want to bring about change through violent revolution rather than through established political processes. This category also includes secular left-wing groups that rely heavily on terrorism to overthrow the capitalist system and either establish “a dictatorship of the proletariat” (Marxist-Leninists) or, much more rarely, a decentralized, non-hierarchical political system (anarchists).

The thing about government operating in the way this document says it is results in government thinking they can stop anything bad from happening to people and sadly many people think that is their job. This is the result when men will not seek God as their God, but inevitably government will look to become a god to the people and when that occurs, the result is tyranny, not blessing. This is not only the case when it comes to terrorism, but in what you eat, what kind of political speech you listen to, what kind of political speech you have, and a whole host of issues. We have been seeing tyranny implemented for years with TSA, the Patriot Act, government sponsored torture, the violation of virtually all of the Bill of Rights and most recently to ruling by the Supreme Court on Obamacare.

The fact that those who were our founding fathers would have been classified as terrorists, as the current administration does, should give one cause for alarm, especially in light of a FEMA training session video (below) where the founding fathers and Christians are blatantly labeled as terrorists. 

Congressman: America Schools Should Be Modeled After Islam & Use Koran

by: Tim Brown
 Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), the Muslim congressman who once said that the Tea Party would “love” to see black Americans “hanging on a tree,” made another controversial statement during a May 26 speech. This time he gave what is at the heart of the Islamic mind and that is the indoctrination of Islam into the West.
Speaking about the American education system, Carson told the audience that American schools should be modeled after Madrassas and touted the benefits of schools that use the Koran as their “foundation.”
A Madrassa as: “a Muslim school, college, or university that is often part of a mosque.”

The congressman said,
America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged and where the foundation is the koran.
“And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students. Most of us are visual learners. Some of us are auditory learners. We learn by hearing. many of use are kinesthetic learners. We learn by doing, touching, and feeling. I have found, as my wife is a principal and I have a five year old daughter at Salema, that we need an educational model that is current, that meets the need of our students. America must understand that she needs Muslims.”

I see. So the Congressman would have us believe that we should teach our children in little madrassas the koran, a book that without the hadiths is virtually impossible to understand, and which promotes a pedophile leader who demands that Christians, Jews and anyone who will not convert to Islam to be killed with the edge of the sword. And this is supposed to “meet the needs of our students” and “tap into educational innovation and ingenuity”? This is supposed to be an “educational model that is current”?
I’ll let that sink in for a bit everyone and you just remember that these are the same people who wipe with their left hand and eat with their right. These are the same people that get gung ho about sending their children to blow themselves up thinking they will be gaining a myriad of vigins to fulfill all their sinful, carnal lusts. These are the same people who would not come out after September 11 and renounce the attacks.

What the congressman is pushing here is the very reason why America will never win the war in the Middle East. America will never win the war there because she has not identified the enemy and she is unwilling to root out the problem which is the indoctrination of Islam into the minds of the children. Because she is unwilling to call Islam what it is, she will now be willing to embrace it and have no problem in giving their children to such indoctrination. After all, Americans are already sending them to a godless, atheistic indoctrination center now.


Has the normalizing of pedophilia begun?

by: Chelsea Schilling
Do people who rape children, or fantasize about sexually abusing them, deserve sympathy – because they were born with the brains of pedophiles?
That’s the question a prominent scientist and a well-known anchor at CNN have asked in the wake of the recent Jerry Sandusky scandal.
CNN recently featured a story by James Cantor, a homosexual psychologist and scientist at the Sexual Behaviors Clinic of the Center for Addiction and Mental Health who serves as associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
“It appears that one can be born with a brain predisposed to experience sexual arousal in response to children,” he wrote in his CNN piece.
He continued, “Cases of child molestation that involve long strings of victims over the course of years illustrate what can happen when someone gives in to, or outright indulges, his sexual interests, regardless of its potential damage on others. It is those cases that dominate headlines and provoke revulsion toward pedophiles.

“But they are rare. An untold number of cases merit sympathy.
“The science suggests that they are people who, through no fault of their own, were born with a sex drive that they must continuously resist, without exception, throughout their entire lives. Little if any assistance is ever available for them.”
According to the American Psychological Association, Cantor is passionate about the neurological underpinnings of sexual behavior and jokes, “I feel lucky to have found a way to stimulate my brain intellectually by indulging myself in thinking about sex all the time.”
He has studied the brains of male pedophiles using magnetic resonance imaging. Cantor explained his findings:

“Pedophilic men have significantly less white matter, which is the connective tissue that is responsible for communication between different regions in the brain. Pedophiles perform more poorly on various tests of brain function, tend to be shorter in height and are three times more likely to be left-handed or ambidextrous (characteristics that are observable before birth). Although nonbiological features may yet turn up to be relevant, it is difficult, if not impossible, to explain the research findings without there being a strong role of biology.”
He explains, from his experience with such individuals, that pedophiles act on their sexual urges and molest children “when they feel the most desperate.”
“Yet, much of what society does has been to increase rather than decrease their desperation,” he wrote.
In the U.S., Cantor notes, the focus tends to be on punishments invoked after sex abuse has taken place – rather than implementing social policies aimed at prevention.
“If it is the brain’s wiring that ultimately determines who will go on to develop pedophilia, can we detect it early enough to interrupt the process?” he asks. “Until we uncover more information, we will do more good by making it easier for pedophiles to come in for help rather than force them into solitary secrecy.”
Meanwhile, a CNN anchor chimed in to express sympathy for Sandusky, who was found guilty on 45 of 48 child sex-abuse charges after he molested at least 10 boys over a period of 15 years.
CNN’s Don Lemon, an open homosexual who has revealed he was molested as a child, interviewed Cantor about his findings. In that segment, he said:

“I know people are going to send me a lot of hate mail for this. I’ve never been one to take glee in anyone’s demise, and when I saw Jerry Sandusky walk out in handcuffs, I did kind of feel a bit sorry for him, even though I know the jury found him to do some horrific things, I was like ‘His life is over.’ All of these young boys, it was terrible for them as well. There are no winners.”
Meanwhile, some experts warn of a highly controversial campaign in recent years that seeks to sympathize with – and even normalize – pedophilia.
Just last year, Dr. Judith Reisman, the principal expert investigator for a U.S. Justice Department study on child sex abuse, said pedophilia advocates are using the same strategy that was successfully employed to make homosexuality a classroom subject for small children in the nation’s public schools.
As WND reported, Reisman attended a symposium held by the “minor-attracted people” advocacy group B4U-ACT to disseminate “accurate information” on the position that pedophilia is just one more alternative sexual orientation.

“If a foreign country came in and did this to our nation, the nation would be outraged,” Reisman said about the B4U-Act event, also attended by J. Matt Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action.
The speakers urged the removal of pedophilia from the American Psychiatric Association’s list of mental defects in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Reisman explained the same strategy was used by homosexual activists in the 1970s when same-sex attractions were removed from the APA’s list of disorders. Eventually, the legalization of “gay marriage,” the mandatory homosexuality lessons in public schools and the policy of allowing open homosexuality in the U.S. military resulted.

“Dr. John Sadler (University of Texas) argued that diagnostic criteria for mental disorders should not be based on concepts of vice since such concepts are subject to shifting social attitudes and doing so diverts mental-health professions from their role as healers,” the B4U-ACT organization said in a report about its symposium in Baltimore.
Another celebrity was Fred Berlin of Johns Hopkins who argued in favor of “acceptance of and compassion for people who are attracted to minors,” the report continued.
The report pointedly referred to “minor-attracted people” in reference to pedophiles and explained that the concerns can be resolved with “accurate information.” Richard Kramer, who represented B4U-ACT at the event, contended listing pedophilia as a disorder stigmatizes the “victims” of the lifestyle choice.
According to Barber, conference speakers said the Diagnostic Manual should “focus on the needs” of the pedophile and should have “a minimal focus on social control” rather than a focus on the “need to protect children.”
Barber, an ardent advocate for Judeo-Christian values and the traditional family, told WND the symposium was “the North American Man-Boy Love Association all dolled up and dressed in the credible language of the elitist Ph.Ds.”
NAMBLA openly advocates the legalization of sex between adults and children.
“This is a bunch of morally relative, highly educated people in the mental health community who are trying to achieve the ultimate in tolerance,” Barber said. “These are the people who are the disciples of Alfred Kinsey.”

It was in the 1940s and 1950s that sex “researcher” Kinsey published his writings ridiculing marriage, fidelity and chastity and preaching widespread sexual experimentation. But according to Reisman’s research, in “Sexual Sabotage,” Kinsey’s “research” was compiled from information frequently obtained from jailed sex offenders and then portrayed as coming from middle-class America.
Barber said the symposium themes became clear quickly:
  • Pedophiles are unfairly “demonized” in society.
  • The concept of “wrong” should not be applied to “minor-attracted persons.”
  • “Children are not inherently unable to consent” to sex with an adult.
  • “An adult’s desire to have sex with children is ‘normative.’”
  • And the Diagnostic Manual “ignores that pedophiles ‘have feelings of love and romance for children’ the same way adult heterosexuals have for each other.”
Barber noted that self-described “gay activist” and speaker Jacob Breslow said it is proper for children to be “the object of our attraction.” Breslow said pedophiles shouldn’t need to get consent from a child to have sex any more than they would get consent from a shoe to wear it, according to Barber.
Berlin previously reported that 67 percent of pedophiles and child molesters relapse after being treated for the disorder. But the few who didn’t were tracked for a period of only two years, and any recidivism after that was unreported. And Reisman noted that even his success “stories” are anonymous and “wholly unverified.”

In a related commentary on WND, Reisman said, “The APA path to pedophile norms follows the success of the homosexual anarchy campaign. Arguably, the pedophile media lobby directed the passionate boy-boy kisses on the TV series ‘Glee,’ to enable fellow ‘minor-attracted persons’ to increasingly be seen as a boy’s sex ‘friend.’
“B4U-ACT claims to ‘help mental health professionals learn more about attraction to minors and to consider the effects of stereotyping, stigma, and fear.’ While the group claimed they want to teach pedophiles ‘how to live life fully and stay within the law,’ no one suggested how to stop their child lust or molestation,” she wrote.
However, in 2010, when Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, a senior Vatican official, linked homosexuality to child sexual abuse, Cantor rejected the claim that there is any link between homosexuality and pedophilia.
“It’s quite solidly shown in the scientific literature that there is absolutely no association between being a gay man and being a pedophile,” he told CNN.

Obama's Social Security Number challenged

by: Jack Cashill

If Barack Obama has an immediate eligibility problem, it is more likely to derive from the Social Security Number he has been using for the last 25 years than from his birth certificate.
Ohio private investigator Susan Daniels has seen to that. On Monday, July 2, she filed suit in Geauga County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court demanding that Jon Husted, Ohio secretary of state, remove Obama’s name from the ballot until Obama can prove the validity of his Social Security Number.
Daniels, who has vetted thousands of Social Security Numbers for numerous other clients, has done her homework. In her filing, she thoroughly documents her contention “that Barack Obama has repeatedly, consistently, and with intent misrepresented himself by using a fraudulently obtained Social Security Number.”

To acquire appropriate standing in court, Daniels has gone to the trouble of establishing herself as a valid write-in candidate for president. Before she is through, this 70-something mother of seven, who has been a licensed Ohio PI since 1995, may cause Obama more trouble than the Romney campaign.
Daniels started her investigation in August 2009. Given her profession, she has been able to access a variety of proprietary databases. What she learned without much trouble is that Obama has been using a Social Security Number with the prefix “042″ since 1986.
As she discovered, the “042″ number is reserved for the exclusive use of individuals who register in Connecticut. When she ran 10 sequential numbers before and after Obama’s, all returned with the documentation “issued 1977-1979 in CT.”
When Daniels ran the numbers immediately flanking Obama’s, she came to the firm conviction that Obama’s number was issued in March 1977 in Connecticut.
By all accounts, as Daniels thoroughly documents, Obama was then a 15-year-old living in Hawaii. There is no record of him even visiting Connecticut in or near this time frame.

To have gotten a Social Security card at this time Obama would have had to show up for a “mandatory in-person interview.” This could not have taken place in Connecticut. Obama’s sister, Maya, by contrast, uses a number appropriate for a Hawaiian resident.
Daniels checked other databases as well to validate her findings, including the Massachusetts Department of Motor Vehicles and the IRS. Yes, Obama used the 042 number to get a driver’s license when at Harvard and as recently as on his 2009 income tax return.
In her research, Daniels kept coming across what she calls a “marked anomaly,” one she had never seen before – multiple birthdates listed for the same person. The 08/04/1961 and 04/08/1961 variation made sense, but the frequent appearance of the year “1890″ did not.
The ample evidence Daniels gathered led her to believe that the 042 number Obama has been using “had previously been issued to another person,” one who lived in Connecticut between 1977 and 1979 and who was born in 1890.

This assertion can be verified. By law, the Social Security Administration will have kept on microfilm a copy of the original SS-5 application attached to a particular Social Security Number. Daniels, however, does not have access to that microfilm.
For this reason, Daniels has filed suit. “Defendant Husted, through this filing,” she argues, “has been made aware that the Democratic Candidate has been using a fraudulent Social Security Number, which would render Barack Obama ineligible under both the Ohio and U.S. Constitutions.”
Daniels asks the court, among other things, to issue an injunction against Obama’s name appearing on ballot until it is determined that he is using a proper Social Security Number.

Given the response of courts elsewhere, it is unlikely that Daniels will find satisfaction in Geauga County or from the Republican secretary of state.
What Daniels has done, however, is establish a paper trail so indisputably legitimate that even the most squeamish of conservative media will have a hard time finding fault.
The major media, of course, will not bother to look. It is up to our Beltway brethren to step up and ask some very basic questions of the president that they, through their timidity in 2008, helped elect. The Romney campaign cannot talk about this issue without their support.

The Awakened Giant Likes Tea

Tea Party SC The Awakened Giant Likes Tea

It’s often said, “Be careful what you wish for – you just might get it.”
Democrats got it all right.
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts – once counted among the constitutional originalists on the high court – has granted President Obama’s supreme wish. By inexplicably siding with the court’s left wing and upholding the president’s signature achievement – government-run socialized health care – Roberts has given Democrats a shiny election-year package adorned with a judicial-activist bow.

The excessive celebration has begun. Nancy Pelosi immediately released a statement gloating, “We made history. … We completed unfinished business!”
Exhibiting that characteristic class intrinsic to “progressivism,” other high-level Democrats took to Twitter: “it’s Constitutional. B*tches,” tweeted Patrick Gaspard, executive director of the Democratic National Committee and all-around sexist pig.
The DNC’s new media outreach director, Greg Greene, one-upped his boss: “Overheard in the office: ‘TAKE THAT MOTHER******S!!’”

To his credit, Mr. Obama showed a bit more of a measured response. At least he bothered to abbreviate his sophomoric profanity tweeting about his signature achievement: “Still a BFD OFA.BO/ayPgAZ” (BFD stands for “Big F–king Deal”).
Our potty-mouthed president then quickly moved on to wishful thinking: “With today’s announcement, it’s time for us to move forward.”
Not likely, chief.
Indeed, as gleeful Democrats tear feverishly into Justice Roberts’ glittery gift, they seem oblivious to the fact that coiled inside and poised to strike rests an election-year viper chock-full of political poison.
What liberals celebrate as a historic milestone is likely a political millstone that may well drown them in November. The American people didn’t want this job-killing, economy-destroying, health-care-rationing monstrosity then; and we don’t want it now.
Like yappy little Marxist pugs, Democrats have, for decades, been chasing the socialized medicine mail truck.
OK, so they finally caught it. Now what?

The absurdly tagged “Affordable Care Act” remains wildly unpopular with most Americans. Polls have not wavered. By a two-to-one margin voters want the plug pulled on Obamacare.
As even Michael Shear of the uber-liberal New York Times acknowledges: “[T]he ruling also has the potential to re-energize the tea-party movement … and provide new political power to Mitt Romney’s pledge to repeal the law. … Republicans eager to seize control of the Senate now have a renewed rallying cry in races across the country.”
And the GOP’s nominee-to-be has wasted no time. It must’ve been all high-fives around Romney headquarters. Shortly after the ruling the former Massachusetts governor took to the microphones, warning America: “If we want to get rid of Obamacare, we’re going to have to replace President Obama. … What the court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected president.”

That’s a powerful promise to a lot of independent voters. Indeed, in little more than 24 hours, Romney had raised nearly $5 million on his pledge to repeal Obamacare alone.
I don’t mean to diminish how utterly mind-boggling the court’s ruling remains. Legal scholars will be dissecting this bizarre decision for decades to come. Still, what I’m more interested in, at least for now, is how the ruling will affect the 2012 elections.
Under any objective analysis, it’s a boon for Mitt Romney and the GOP. Most damaging to Obama and Democrats, perhaps, is the fact that Obamacare’s individual mandate was held to be a “tax” rather than a “penalty.”
Recall that, while Democrats were using parliamentary sleight-of-hand to ram Obamacare through on Christmas Eve, 2009, they expressly wrote into the bill that fines associated with an individual’s failure to fork over the bucks amounted to a penalty, not a tax.

President Obama promised the same, saying on multiple occasions that the individual mandate was – you guessed it – a “penalty,” not a “tax.”
Nevertheless, Chief Justice Roberts enigmatically joined the four known Supreme Court liberals to effectively revise the bill so that it might pass constitutional muster. To do so, they arbitrarily invoked the government’s taxing power, despite lawmakers’ legislative intent to the contrary. This, by definition, is legislating from the bench. It’s judicial activism.
The effect? Obama and Democrats are a pack of liars. They’ve promised, over and again, not to raise taxes on the middle class.
Well, middle class, congratulations. You now have 21 brand new tax increases costing you over $700 billion out of pocket.
How do you like them peas?
It’s a double-edged sword. Obamacare has become ObamaTax. Although this strange legal fiction may have temporarily saved the health-care overhaul, it likely spells doom for Democrats in November. Ultimately, when all the smoke has cleared, this means that Obamacare remains on life support and is fading fast.
Shortly after Thursday’s decision, Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel and dean of Liberty University School of Law, said: “Elections have consequences. Obamacare is the result of squandered votes cast in 2008. This November, we need to elect principled people who will repeal Obamacare.”
And by “we,” he means you.

In the 1970 film “Tora! Tora! Tora!,” shortly after bombing Pearl Harbor, Japanese Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto is portrayed as saying, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court awakened a sleeping giant.
This giant likes tea.
Remember 2010, Democrats. Mr. Obama? Well, to borrow from Bachman-Turner Overdrive: You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Mr Roberts, The Constitution?

John Roberts 2 SC Mr Roberts, the Constitution?

Obamacare’s “mandate has been ruled constitutional because it is a “TAX”. There are, however, several problems with that declaration by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. First, Obama and his administration zombies publically denied that the mandate was a tax. When Little George on ABC News questioned Obama back in 2009, Obama himself stated that it was NOT a tax. He LIED! When Obama’s Solicitor General went before the Supreme Court earlier this year, he argued that it was a tax! NOW the Obama White House is trying to say that the mandate is not a tax again, but a penalty?? Why, you may ask? Well, maybe for a couple of reasons.

In order for the mandate to be a tax, it would have had to originate in the House of Representatives to be constitutional. It originated in the Senate, making it unconstitutional. Obama adamantly denied that it was a tax to both Congress and the American people. The Democrats deliberately did not give anyone the time to read the bill thoroughly because if they had, it would have revealed what it really is: the largest tax hike in American history. It also would have revealed Obama as the liar that he is by exposing his mandate as an unconstitutionally conceived tax on everyone.
I believe that the SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVES posing as Democrats now need to pay for contraceptive devices for the intercourse they are about to experience. The elderly, the disabled, and the chronically ill are going to see their benefits and their care reduced, probably even rationed. The joyful part is that the lives of those of us with multiple health problems will probably not be allowed to live to a ripe old age because we will be deemed too much of a financial burden by whatever bean-counters Obama appoints to his health board. You simply cannot take a health care pie, which is already seriously underfunded, and add 20 million more slices to it without a MASSIVE influx of revenue to make it work. If you doubt me, get a hold of the American Center for Law and Justice or the Heritage Foundation and ask them if they can send you information that explains what’s about to happen. Please do not take my word for it; educated yourself, and you’ll be one better than your Congressional representatives.

I have another question for Chief Justice Roberts: why did you not force Justice Elena Kagen to recuse herself from this case since she had legal input into the substance of this law as Solicitor General in Obama’s administration? Seems like if there is even the appearance of conflict of interest, a Justice should have enough ethical background to recuse him or herself, and if not, Chief Justice, it should be your duty to do it for them. Don’t tell me that the Supreme Court of the United States finds questions of ethics and morality repugnant. The square peg of the mandate didn’t fit into the round hole of the Constitution, Mr. Roberts, until you took your judicial activist saw and made it fit, sir. This will be the legacy of the Roberts court.
The Obama administration lied to the American public about their compassionate, caring, all-encompassing health care law, when in fact it is none of these things. Everyone, including those about to be added, are going to be cheated out of the health care they deserve because the Great Deceiver lied to us all. Obama said no one’s taxes but the rich would go up; the Great Deceiver lied again. The GREAT Deceiver told our most vulnerable citizens that Republicans were going to throw them off the cliff when he, himself, had already started that process by taking over $700 BILLION out of both Medicare and Social Security to pay for his “new health care”! Don’t believe me? Find those two web sites, and look up the provisions of the law yourself.

I know that when you go to the polls in November that there is one thing you can count on Obama to deliver…….deception! This man and his cronies have just pulled off one of the biggest frauds ever committed against America and her people……….and they’re laughing about it! Happy 4th of July, and enjoy your freedom while you still have some. May God forgive us and bless this nation and its people before it is too late.
Oh, and one more thing: give all those people that you love in your life that have chronic and/or serious health problems  a little extra love this holiday season because if Obamacare kicks in fully, the government may just decide that they are not worth financially keeping around. It has become sheer insanity when you life’s worth is determined by an accountant.

Arrest Them All!

{oped~Jack agrees} 
Holder Didnt Inhale SC Arrest Them All!

It seems that Obama’s Department of Justice is refusing Congress’s orders to start legal proceedings against Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr. Holder has been found guilty of both criminal and civil contempt of Congress charges by a vote of the majority of the House of Representatives, including 17 Democrats. In my humble opinion, this is an obstruction of justice. Is the Department of Justice really echoing Obama’s “I will decide which laws to enforce and which ones not to” attitude? Is Obama’s Department of Justice really saying that Holder is ABOVE the law and cannot be touched?

Maybe the remedy to this situation would be to have the United States Marshall Service start arresting Justice Department officials from the top down for obstruction of justice and frog-march them out into the street in front of Justice for all the news media to see. If the news media refuses to go to the rats, we will bring the rats to them. What a deal! The arrests should continue until someone at Justice will comply with Congresse’s order. I, for one, am sick of this Chicago Thugocracy, from Obama on down, thinking they no longer have to answer to anyone! Well, they do just like everyone else in this country. Congress should enact a law against this ridiclous kind of arrogance.
Two Federal agents have died, Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata, along with hundreds of Mexican citizens because of a screwed up plan to set the stage for the abolition of the Second Amendment by the SOCIALIST PROGRESSIVE administration of Barack Hussien Obama and his Thugocracy. Holder then attepted to cover it up and stonewalled Congress for a year and half. Unfortunately for Obama and Holder, a whistleblower, a couple of agents’ murders, and some wiretaps and and a paper trail show that they were attempting to keep it from Congress and the public. BUSTED!

One of the most disgraceful displays by the Democrats in my lifetime was when about 100 of them walked out of the House session that was voting to hold the Attorney General accountable for his actions and refusal to cooperate! The SOCIALISTS claimed that this action was an unwarranted “political witch hunt!’ No, actually this has real evidence of wrongdoing by Holder and Obama. The REAL political “witch hunt” took place during the Bush administration’s “Valerie Plame” fiasco!
I have one question for the black community in America who support Obama, Holder, and the like: why, with so many other ethical, upstanding, and honest blacks do you continue to support these Chicago back alley thugs? You have over 14% youth unemployment. Your social status and standard of living have gone down, not up, under this administration. Are the New Black Panthers, Sharpton, Jackson, and “Calypso Louie” Farrakhan really the people who represent your values? Google “black millionaires and billionaires”, and see for yourselves how many blacks have really prospered in this country rather that what the race-peddlers have tried to sell you. Your heroes, and those of your children and grandchildren, should be the 7 black servicemen awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for their sacrifice in World War II. Or the first black marine unit from this war.

Is America going to let what Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. accomplished for civil rights be erased because these thugs have no character? Wasn’t that how Dr King said a person should be judged, and not by the color of their skin. If your son or daughter was killed in the service of the United States government, wouldn’t you feel that you had a right to know what happened? The Terry and Zapata families almost certainly feel this way, but AG Holder refuses to tell, and Obama shields him behind an unwarranted execution of “executive privilege.”
The questions still remain: who authorized this fiasco and why? Who knew about this program? Who lied to Congress? The answer to these questions, or the failure to obtain the answers, is going to tell the American public whether we are still a Representative Republic or a Banana Republic dictatorship. We still have time to save this country, and November 6, 2012 will be when it it determined whether America lives or dies. Your choice.
By the way, how’s the fact that Obamacare is really just the biggest tax increase in ALL of American history working out for ya? Just thought I’d ask because we are all going to find out what “FREE” really costs! Adieu.

Obama Caught Begging For Cash…Illegally?

Barack Obama Phone SC Obama Caught Begging For Cash...Illegally?
It was reported on Sunday that Obama was so broken up after touring the devastation caused by the Colorado wildfires that he promptly hopped aboard Air Force One and made an 18-minute conference call to his big donors asking for cash that was described as “pleading” and “a tad worried.”  Daily Beast columnist Lloyd Grove, who obtained the audio tape from an Obama donor, went on to refer to the call as “rambling[s]”…from “a dog-tired idealist.”
Almost a year ago today, Obama was in hot water for videotaping a campaign commercial in the White House Map Room begging for cash; U.S. Code clearly states that fundraising in a government building is strictly forbidden. The question is, does this also apply to Air Force One? The law does not include the term “airplane,” but by extension, one would think it applied to anything serving a building-like function. Furthermore, presumably while on Air Force One paid for by taxpayers at a cost of $180,000 per hour, Obama should be engaged in activity relating to his job, not on his hands and knees begging for cash from his cronies.

Here’s the relevant U.S. Code:
18 U.S.C. § 607
(a) Prohibition.
(1) In general. – It shall be unlawful for any person to solicit or receive a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a Federal, State, or local election from a person who is located in a room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties by an officer or employee of the United States. It shall be unlawful for an individual who is an officer or employee of the Federal Government, including the President, Vice President, and Members of Congress, to solicit or receive a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a Federal, State, or local election, while in any room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties by an officer or employee of the United States, from any person.
(2) Penalty. – A person who violates this section shall be fined not more than $5,000, imprisoned not more than 3 years, or both.

Here Is Your “Hope And Change”

by: Tim Powers

Obama Hourglass Hope and Change SC Here is Your Hope and Change

The following is just a brief list of what America has endured over the past four years. I’m sure there is much more that can be added, but we must not forget these things come November. That is, if  Obama doesn’t find a way to cancel the election.
-Bowing to forign leaders.
-Taking the side of Muslims.

-Extorting money from BP to be placed in a third-party fund for so-called cleanup efforts.
-Defies court order lifting ban on off shore oil drilling.
-Gives $2 billion to Petrobras- a Brazilian-owned oil company in which George Soros is a major stake holder.
-Poured taxpayer money into now-defunct Solyndra.
-Refused to prosecute the Black Panthers’ voter intimidation case.

Fails to disclose what transpired with “Project Gunrunner-Operation Fast and Furious”
-Says that America is no longer a Christian nation.
-Signs executive order giving him supreme power over America in case Martial law is declared.
I could go on and on from here. I have been saying for the past four years that as news recycles at a rapid pace, we lose sight of what has already happened to our great nation. We MUST look at the big picture here. It has been clearly established that “hope and change” is the same as “fraud and treason”. Four more years of this communist regime will surely spell the death of America. We must become fully awake, educate ourselves, and prepare for the fight of our lives. America has been threatened from within, and we are her last line of defense. As always, stay safe and always be aware of your surroundings.

THE  BAY  BRIDGE 100O/O   foreign  steel Should Be Made In

The Oakland Bay Bridge, an iconic American landmark in the San Francisco Bay, is being built with millions of dollars of Chinese-made steel.

We could have made it here. We didn't. And it's just one of many ways China holds us in an economic stranglehold:

  The U.S. – China deficit grew from $84 billion in 2001, when China entered the WTO, to $295 billion in 2011
  This deficit has eliminated or displaced nearly 2.8 million U.S. jobs since 2001, representing about 2 percent of total U.S. employment
  Of the nearly 2.8 million jobs lost or displaced, 1.9 million were in manufacturing – nearly half of all U.S. manufacturing jobs lost between 2001 and 2010
  In a national poll, 96% of Republican voters say they support keeping America's trade laws strong and strictly enforced to provide a level playing field for our workers and businesses
  China owns 9 percent of our public debt

Speaker Boehner, listen to us:
Take a stand on China's currency manipulation.
Stop China's illegal and unfair trade practices.
Pass H.R. 639/S. 328 – NOW!
Will Washington have the courage to act? Tell Congress to hold China accountable
We've handed them our future, buying and borrowing like mad. So when unfair trade practices have cost 2.8 million Americans their jobs, Congress does nothing. When our trade deficit with China hits a new record, we fail to curb our insatiable desire for their artificially subsidized exports.

This is more than economic suicide. It's a national security threat that requires urgent action by Congress.

Will Washington have the courage to act?
Tell Congress to hold China accountable
