Hooray for Israel….


Four days ago, on the Gaza strip, Israel mounted an offensive that has the whole Arab world up in arms. And I, as a friend of Israel applaud what she is doing.

Over the last year, Israel has been the target of Rocket fire that has come from Palestinian’s and Israel has not done anything. On Saturday, over 200 Rockets were propelled into Israel. And Israel finally got tired of it and started to fight back. On Sunday, only 20 rockets were fired into Israel, and the world community is condemning Israel for attacking! But I have one question here.

Where was the world condemnation of Palestine all during this offensive against Israel with all the Rocket Fire? I guess that was okay huh?

Now, in yesterday’s Indianapolis Star, the main headline on the front page said this:


Ground invasion of Gaza possible

Ground invasion of Gaza possible? I would say it is imperative! And Hamas is the target. Here is the story from the Monday, December 29, 2008 Indianapolis Star.


GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Israel widened it’s deliest-ever air offensive against Gaza’s Hama rulers Sunday, pounding smuggling tunnels and a central prison, sending more tanks and artillery toward the Gaza border and approving a reserves call up for a possible ground invasion.

Israeli leaders said they would press ahead with the Gaza campaign, despite enraged protests across the Arab world and Syria’s decidsion to break off indirect peace talks with the Jewish state. Israels’s foreign minister said the goal was to halt Gaza rocket fire on Israel for good, but not to reoccupy the territory.

The two day death toll nearing 300 Sunday, crowds of Gazans breached the border wall with Egypt to escape the chaos. Egyptian forces, some firing in the air, tried to push them back into Gaza, and an official said one border guard was killed.

Hamas, in turn, fired rockets deeper than ever into Israel, near the Israeli port city of Ashdod.

Most of the dead were from the Hamas security forces, and Israel’s military intelligence chief said Hamas’ ability to fire rockets had been reduced by 50 percent,. Hamas rocket fire dropped off sharply, from more than 130 on Saturday to about 20 on Sunday. Still, Hamas continues to command 20,000 fighters.

Hamas officials said Sunday that they would continue to fight back, and they called for suicide operations to counter Israeli military strikes.

Oh really?!?!?!?!? Hamas in other words is acting like this attack is just on them with no provocation? What about all the rocket fire into Israel lately? Doesn’t Israel have the right to defend her home turf so to speak? Apparently NOT!

But I do have to ask you something. If you had someone come into your house, and do things like set fire to things, and steal things and break things, would you just sit around and let them do it? I think not, unless your an idiot. That is what we have with Israel and the Gaza Strip. Rockets have been fired into Israel with great frequency, and the Israeli’s have not done anything until now. Now they are retaliating, and fighting back. This time, they are saying they are tired of the Rockets being fired into their country and it has to stop. And for what this country is doing, I say bravo to them. May God be with them to put enough pressure on Hamas and the Palestinians to stop the rocket fire on Israel.

And this whole thing about Hamas fighting back because Israel is finally fighting them is stupid and should be the part of this that the world should condemn. Israel is only making known to the world and to Hamas and the Palistinians that they do not want to be bombed anymore. By Anyone!

So I say about Israel, may God be with you in this endeavor, and may you come out victorious against an enemy that has fought dirty the whole time, and uses the world to do their dirty work. Victory to Israel!

Time to get rid of Americans who think America sucks…..


And I am mainly talking about Mr. Thomas L. Friedman now. He wrote an article in the New York Slimes, that hit the press on December 24th, called Time to Reboot America in which he compared China to America. He called China the Jetsons, and America the Flintstones. If this idiot of the press thinks America is so bad, I would almost be willing to give him a one way ticket to China to go to the country that he loves so much and get him out of here. We have enough idiots in this nation who take their freedoms for granted, and always badmouthing what this country stands for. I say to Mr. Friedman, get the hell out. We do not need jerks like you who can think of nothing good to print about America, even at Christmas time when there should be peace and good will towards men……all mankind and that includes America you horse’s ass……

Here is your stupid story from the New York Times, on December 24th, 2008

Time to Reboot America

OP-ED COLUMNIST
By Thomas L. Friedman

I had a bad day last Friday, but it was an all-to-typical day for America.

It actually started well, on Kau Sai Chau, an island off Hong Kong, where I stood on a rocky hilltop overlooking the South China Sea and talked to my wife back in Maryland, static-free, using a freind’s Chinese cellphone. A few hours later, I took off from Hong Kong’s ultramodern airport after riding out there from downtown on a sleek high-speed train — with wireless connectivity that was so good I was able to surf the Web the whole way on my laptop.

Landing at Kennedy Airport from Hong Kong was, as I’ve argued before, like going from the Jetson’s to the Flintstones. You see here, this idiot of a so called American, calls the Chinese the Jetsons and the Americans the Flintstones. Like I said before, if he doesn’t like this country, then he needs to leave and go to the country he does love. The ugly, low-ceilinged arrival hall was cramped, and using a luggage cart cost $3. (Couldn’t we at least supply foreign visitors with a free luggage cart, like other major airports in the world?) As I looked aournd this dingy room, it reminded of somewhere I had been before. Then I remembered: It was the luggage hall in the old Hong Kong Kai Tak Airport. It closed in 1998.

The next day I went to Penn Station, where the escalators down to the tracks are so narrow that they seem to have been designed before suitcases were invented. The disgusting track-side platforms apparently have not been cleaned since World War II. I took the Acela, America’s sorry excuse for a bullet train, from New York to Washington. Along the way, I tried to use my cellphone to conduct an interview and my conversation was interrupted by three dropped calls within in 15-minute span.

All I could think to myself was: If we’re so smart, why are other people living so much better than us? What has become of our infrastructure?

People, I couldn’t read this drivel any more. This man is such an idiot that he doesn’t have the slightest clue about what is going on here and what is causing our problems on what he is talking about. And that is, regulations. Our government, the liberal side of it mostly has regulated our country right out of competition with the rest of the world.

You see Mr. Thomas L. Friedman, anything that is built in the United States anymore is almost killed before it starts, with the “massive” regulations to make it “safe” for the people, no matter what. Along with the “massive” regulations that the builders and the contractors have to deal with, comes the cost of it.

In China, at your dear old “Hong Kong’s ultra modern airport”, they do not have to deal with the regulations that New York’s Kennedy Airport did, therefore, the Chinese Airport didn’t cost nearly as much to build, nor did they have to put up with the bureaucracy that we have to put up with here. They planned it, and they built it the way they wanted to build it, and the way it was planned……whether it is safe or not, whether the structures are safely built or not, they are there, and for now are beautiful and wonderful to behold. But because there is no government “regulations” to stymie the creativity of the designers, and there were no inspectors to stop production if they came through and noticed a “shortcut” being taken or “inferior materials” being used. OH NO Mr. Friedman. You can probably bet that there were “inferior materials” used in the Hong Kong Airport that would have never been allowed here. There, nothing will be said, if the thing ever collapses on people, and hundreds are killed. Tthey know that we, as the compassionate people that we are, would probably go over there and help to rebuild and get their airport back, only this time it will be to code, and probably not as pretty.

So, Mr Friedman, you liberal idiot of the “nth” degree, stop and think next time you want to trash your America. Think about all the “regulations” and “codes” that your precious Liberal minds around this country’s government’s *local and federal* have imposed on the builders of this nation. Think about how expensive everything is to build because of these codes and regulations! And how much the builders and contractors get paid just to get this stuff built.

If you would just look for once at the costs that our government is imposing on our builders to build anything, then you can see why things always seem so much better when you leave the United States. The open spaces in buildings that are not safe are allowed there, but not here.

We are smart, Mr Friedman, but it is the Liberals in our government that are stupid, with their regulations, and building codes and ways to bring us to the Flintstone era and not the Jetsons’s. Do not blame America for this. If you want to blame America for this, then put the blame where it actually lies. On the liberal *and more and more the Republican side too*, government of Regulations and Codes and building permits and inspectors and everything else that comes down the pike to keep our nation safe from inferior building codes and designs. Ones that look pretty and spacious, ones that can come down with the slightest quake or or disaster. Stop and think next time you want to trash America Mr. Thomas L. Friedman, and all you other liberals out there that like to trash this nation. Stop to think what brought us to where we are today. It isn’t the creativity of the people that got us here. It is nothing more than Government and their insistence that the American people are stupid and we can’t do anything without Government intervention and regulations, to supposedly keep us safe, at the cost of keeping our stuff, not so nice looking.

Your comment, on us being “Dumb as we wanna be,” because we indulge ourselves for too long with tax cuts that we can’t afford, bailouts of auto companies that have become giant wealth destruction machines, …etc….etc…..etc, is in itself really stupid. It has been proven time and time again, that your liberal thinking that taxes have to be raised for the government to function is wrong. Tax hikes like you liberals want, only serve to slow down the economy because they do not give incentives to produce. Tax cuts are the way to go because they inspire people to do better. To make more money To build better infrastructures, and better buildings. To inspire to investments in “21st century renewable power systems or efficient cars,” Only tax cuts can do that inspiring MR. FRIEDMAN! Not the precious tax hikes that you liberals always aspire too. And that too, has been proven time and time again to help our economy, not to hurt it. Look into our history of tax hikes across the board and you will see that they do not help. Why you liberal thinking idiots do not see this, is beyond me, and I am but an average joe here in the United States who has more common sense in my little finger than you do in your whole freaking body. Get with it man and stop being so damned stupid. Just because some other country has something that right now, when it is new, looks so much nicer, stop and think about the regulations and codes they didn’t have to deal with in building it. Stop and think of the inferior materials in it, that would not be allowed here. Think about the cost for once. And then, if you still wish to bash America my idiot NON friend, then I will tell you what. I am sure that there are many Americans out here, who are proud to be here in America, even with what you liberals have done to it, and continue too, who would be happy to fork over the money to send you to China. Not for a short trip……but to stay there. Appreciate this country and try to fix what is wrong, or get the hell out. Cause we sure as heck do not want you here. YOUR kind are part of the problem. NOT THE SOLUTION!

I wish to thank Conservative Attack Dog for the article that I posted here, in my own way. I had never read the article that this scum Thomas Friedman had written until I went to his blog. So kudos for you for this story.
I think that the Thomas Friedman’s of this country need to look at how the middle class in this country lives, and then check out the middle class of your precious China, if you can find one that is, before you trash this country again. And I say it again. Mr. Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Slimes, you are an idiot.

We Can’t do this and survive…..why can they?


When you go to a bank, and get a loan, how much does the bank know about where the money is going to be used at? Usually, when we get a loan, the bank has to know everything about what that money is going to be used for and why. But, here is what is happening with our government.

With the bailout money, you would think that the banks who got the money in the bailout, would know where the money was going and why. And if that is what you think, then you are sadly mistaken. They do not know.

From a story that I got from the AP {Associated Press} earlier in the day on Monday. And what I found kind of stunned me. Here is what the story said:

Where’d the bailout money go? Shhh, it’s a secret

By Matt Apuzzo, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON–It’s something any bank would demand to know before handing out a loan: Where’s the money going? But after receiving billions in aid from U.S. taxpayers, the nation’s largest banks say they can’t track exactly how they’re spending the money or they simply refuse to discuss it.

“We’ve lent some of it. We’ve not lent some of it. We’ve not given any accounting of, ‘Here’s how we’re doing it,'” said Thomas Kelly, a spokesman for JPMorgan Chase, which received at least 1 billion in government money and asked four questions: How much has been spent? What was it spent on? How much is being held in savings, and what’s the plan for the rest?

None of the banks provided specific answers.

“We’re not providing dollar-in, dollar-out tracking,” said Barry Kolling, a spoksman for Atlanta, Ga based SunTrust Banks Inc., which got $3.5 billion in taxpayer dollars.

Some banks said they simply didn’t know where the money was going.

“We manage our capital in its aggregate,” said Regions Financial Corp. spokesman tim Deighton, who said the Birmingham, Alabama based company is not tracking how it is spending the $3.5 billion it received as part of the financial bailout.

The answers highlight the secrecy surrounding the Troubled Assets Relief Program, which earmarked $700 billion — about the size of the Netherlands’ economy — to help rescue the financial industry. The Treasury Department has been using the money to buy stock in U.S. banks, hoping that the sudden inflow of cash will get banks to start lending money.

there has been no accounting of how banks spend that money. Lawmakers summoned bank executives to Capitol Hill last month and implored them to lend the money — not to hord it or spend it on corporate bunuses, junkets or to buy other banks. But there is no process in place to make sure that’s happening and there are no consequences for banks who don’t comply.

Now is this any way to run a business? And giving out bailout loans to companies is a business. If the banks did their work in loaning money out did it this way, they would be bankrupt so quickly that their collective heads would spin. But there is more folks. Read on:


“It is entirely appropriate for the American people to know how their taxpayer dollars are being spent in private industry,” said Elizabeth Warren, the top congressional watchdog overseeing the financial bailout.

But, at least for now, there’s no way for taxpayers to find that out.

Pressured by the Bush administration to approve the money quickly, Congress attached nearly no strings on the $700 billion in October. And the Treasury Department, which doles out the money, never asked banks how it would be spent.

Are we kidding here? The banks should know better in the first place. They are in the business of loaning money. They know what needs to be done to get a loan, and what they expect of the people they loan money too. Shouldn’t they because of this, know that is what they needed to do? I shudder to think just where this country is going when the financial portion of our country can’t do the right things when getting money for a loan, or a bailout. The people of the United States are not stupid, though it seems the government thinks we are. And still, there is more people. The article goes on………

“Those are legitimate questions that should have been asked on Day One,” said Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J., a House Financial Services Committee member who opposed the bailout as it was rushed through Congress. “Where is the money going to go? How is it going to be spent? When are we going to get a record on it?”

Nearly every bank AP questioned — including Citibank and Bank of America, two of the largest recipients of bailout money — responded with generic public relations statements explaining that the money was being used to strengthen balance sheets and continue making loans to ease the credit crisis.

A few banks described company-specific programs, such as JPMorgan Chase’s plan to lend $5 billion to nonprofit and health care companies next year. Richard Becker, senior vice president of Wisconsin-based Marshall & Ilsley Corp., said the $1.75 billion in bailout money allowed the bank to temporarily stop foreclosing on homes.

But no bank provided even the most basic accounting for the federal money.

“We’re choosing not to disclose that,” said Kevin Heine, spokesman for Bank of New York Mellon, which received about $3 billion.

They are choosing not to disclose that????? Oh come on now. How freaking stupid do they think that we are? If we ever took a loan from these same banks and tried to say the same things to them when asked about how we are going to spend the money, we would lose the money and probably end up in jail. Where is the correctness in this? I sure as hell do not see it. Yet my friends, that is not all. The article goes on for more of this stupidity……


Others said the money couldn’t be tracked……….Couldn’t be tracked????!!!?!?!?! Bob Denham, a spokesman for North Carolina based BB&T Corp., said the bailout money “doesn’t have its own bucket.” But he said taxpayer money wasn’t used in the bank’s recent purchase of a Florida Insurance company. Asked how he could be sure, since the money wasn’t being tracked, Denham said the bank would have made that deal regardless.

Others, such as Morgan Stanley spokeswoman Carissa Ramirez, offered to discuss the matter with reporters on condition of anonymity. Where AP refused, Ramirez sent an e-mail saying: “We are going to decline to comment on your story.”

Most banks wouldn’t say why they were keeping the details secret.

“We’re not sharing any other details. We’re just not at this time,” said Wendy Walker, a spokeswoman for Dallas-based Comerica Inc., which received $2.25 billion from the government.

I just will not say anything about this one…..sheesh!!!!


Heine, the New York Mellon Corp. spokesman who said he wouldn’t share spending specifics, added: “I just would prefer if you wouldn’t say that we’re not going to discuss those details.”

The banks which came closest to answering the questions were those, such as U.S. Bancorp and Huntington Bancshares Inc., that only recently received the money and have yet to spend it. But neither provided anything more than a generic summary of how the money would be spent.

Lawmakers say they want to tighten restrictions on the remaining, yet-to-be-released $250 billion block of bailout money before more cash is handed out. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said the department is trying to step up its monitoring of bank spending.

There is more people….but I think you get the idea. I think right now, the government should step back in, take the money back until the banks will disclose how much has been spent? What was it spent on? How much is being held in savings, and what’s the plan for the rest? If they do not want to do what they know is right here….then they should lose the money, and be made to pay back the part that is gone. This is ridiculous. We wouldn’t be allowed to do this, why should they? The story I got from the AP wire on the morning of 12/22/08.

The Cornerstone of our Nation is under attack.


The cornerstone of this nation is under attack people, and sadly, it is not under attack by an enemy that wishes to destroy what we have as a free country. Oh no. It is under attack by the Liberal Left in this country, and also from the Republicans who, used to get it. All you have to do, is look back to the “teachings” of Ronald Reagan to see those things that are being desecrated as we speak. The Bill of Rights. The Constitution. Everything that we should be holding near and dear to our hearts as Americans is being systematically changed and altered to fit another agenda. One that is not good for the America that we as part of the “Boomer” generation grew up believing. And if we do not wake up, there will be NO America left to fight for, or pray for. And I believe that God is looking down on us shaking His mighty head wondering just where we put the intelligence that He gave us.

Make no mistake people, this nation is under attack, and not just by the Jihadists from the Middle East either, but also from our own government. People that we should be trusting, but who are selling this country down the river without an oar to save itself.

It used to be that you had to look really hard to see the things that they were doing to hurt this nation and the things that she stands for. But anymore, they *the left especially* has gotten so brazen with their ideals, that they are doing it right out in the open. And we are still not taking notice. Most of us anyway. We should be standing up for America, not trying to tear her down.

It used to be, that Americans didn’t care what the world thought. We did what we knew was right, and if the world followed suit, then that was great. If they didn’t, we would continue on the right path, and hope that we could convince them the RIGHT way to go. That kind of thinking sadly is in the past now. It seems that the right things to do are not wanted anymore……The right things to do, is just something that makes us Americans arrogant, and in need of change. The problem with this is people…..being right does not arrogance make. That is the lie that has been propagated by the left. And that is a lie that this country would do well to forget.

God Bless America

Leadership: Academic Elitism vs Principled Wisdom



Check Google Page Rank

This post is not mine, as it came from Scott Martin on the Conservatism Today blog, one of the Conservative Conglomerate blogs on my blogroll This post is well worth the reprint. As it tells what is going on and what we should look to!….

Kudos to Scott at Conservatism Today.


Leadership: Academic Elitism vs Principled Wisdom

President-elect Barack Obama swiftly revealed the direction his team would take, as the Washington Post noted last Sunday:

All told, of Obama’s top 35 appointments so far, 22 have degrees from an Ivy League school, MIT, Stanford, the University of Chicago or one of the top British universities…

While Obama’s picks have been lauded for their ethnic and ideological mix, they lack diversity in one regard: They are almost exclusively products of the nation’s elite institutions and generally share a more intellectual outlook than is often the norm in government. Their erudition has already begun to set a new tone in the capital, cheering Obama’s supporters and serving as a clarion call to other academics. Yale law professor Dan Kahan said several of his colleagues are for the first time considering leaving their perches for Washington…

Absent-Minded Professors

Just what America needs, huh? A bunch of pointy-headed theorists who have never accomplished anything outside of Planet Academia, rushing to Washington to tell inhabitants of the real world how we can solve all our problems.

We tried this “best and brightest” approach under Kennedy. As the article notes, that’s how we got mired in Vietnam. We had our own President Egghead with Jimmy Carter. He was always the smartest man in the room, and usually the least able to decide what course of action would be best to take.

High intelligence and even higher education is not a prerequisite for leadership – it is a warning signal. More often than not, these types suffer from Absent-minded Professor Syndrome – great genius in the laboratory or the classroom, but an inability to locate their car keys and an empty place where their common sense should be.

Dangerous Geniuses

Occasionally you find a highly-intelligent, highly-educated person who is not totally incapable of completing normal tasks successfully. Someone who can shoot hoops and smoke a cigarette at the same time. Someone like Barack Obama. Their education tells them that they have all the answers. Their high intelligence tells them that they are the only person who can save America from itself.

This is dangerous. Once this conclusion is reached (and I believe it already has been) it’s all over. These people might have good intentions. They might make the trains run on time for awhile. But soon no policy, no law, no relationship becomes as important as maintaining power. Mistakes will be made, laws will be broken and ignored, preachers and grandmothers will get thrown under the bus.

This doesn’t just go for liberals, either. One of my favorite theoreticians ever is Newt Gingrich, and he suffered from the same problem. For a short period of time, he accomplished great things. But his belief in his own greatness caused him to make mistakes, break rules of ethics and throw people under the bus. Until the bus made a detour and ran him over. Since he’s gone back to working as a theoretician, he’s been doing great things again. But he should never be President.

Wise, Principled Leadership – The Reagan Legacy

Reagan

If extreme intelligence and high educational achievement are not positive character traits in leaders, what is? Wisdom, based on timeless principles of individual liberty. Reasonable intelligence mixed with common sense and love for that which is good. A high sense of personal morality.

The article notes that my political hero, Ronald Reagan, graduated from tiny Eureka College. Certainly he was an intelligent man; you don’t save multiple lives as a teenage lifeguard, become a top sports announcer, become a household name as an actor, become President of an actors union, become governor of the largest state in the nation, and then become President of the United States without intelligence. Being one of the best in the world at whatever you choose to be doing at any given time takes some smarts. But his intelligence and education were not uncommon.

As President, he would nod off during meetings when advisors talked about missile throw-weights. The minutia didn’t interest him. Pointy-headed academics didn’t interest him. He was interested in the big picture.

He believed that insuring personal freedom was the greatest goal of government. He knew that socialist utopianism doesn’t solve problems, that government planners don’t solve problems, they exacerbate them. And he knew these things because he knew all about the existence of evil.

And because he knew about evil, he knew what Soviet communism was. He learned this as President of the Screen Actors Guild, when he had to carry a gun with him to cross picket lines and when he had to battle Soviet infiltrators in the film industry. And because he knew evil, he knew that the Soviet Union would someday crumble from within. He knew that if America ever applied the right types of pressure, it would crumble sooner.

The academics laughed at the “ignorant cowboy” when he said the following in June of 1982 to the British Parliament. None of the great minds with their fancy degrees knew what Reagan knew: That the Soviet Union was doomed because it was evil, if free men and women would just shine their light upon it.

We’re approaching the end of a bloody century plagued by a terrible political invention — totalitarianism. Optimism comes less easily today, not because democracy is less vigorous, but because democracy’s enemies have refined their instruments of repression. Yet optimism is in order, because day by day democracy is proving itself to be a not-at-all-fragile flower. From Stettin on the Baltic to Varna on the Black Sea, the regimes planted by totalitarianism have had more than 30 years to establish their legitimacy. But none — not one regime — has yet been able to risk free elections. Regimes planted by bayonets do not take root….

(t)he gift of vision, the willingness to see the future based on the experience of the past. It is this sense of history, this understanding of the past that I want to talk with you about today, for it is in remembering what we share of the past that our two nations can make common cause for the future…

History teaches the dangers of government that overreaches — political control taking precedence over free economic growth, secret police, mindless bureaucracy, all combining to stifle individual excellence and personal freedom.

President Reagan then predicts the future:

Historians looking back at our time will note the consistent restraint and peaceful intentions of the West. They will note that it was the democracies who refused to use the threat of their nuclear monopoly in the forties and early fifties for territorial or imperial gain. Had that nuclear monopoly been in the hands of the Communist world, the map of Europe — indeed, the world — would look very different today… At the same time we see totalitarian forces in the world who seek subversion and conflict around the globe to further their barbarous assault on the human spirit. What, then, is our course? Must civilization perish in a hail of fiery atoms? Must freedom wither in a quiet, deadening accommodation with totalitarian evil?In an ironic sense Karl Marx was right. We are witnessing today a great revolutionary crisis, a crisis where the demands of the economic order are conflicting directly with those of the political order. But the crisis is happening not in the free, non-Marxist West, but in the home of Marxist-Leninism, the Soviet Union.

It is the Soviet Union that runs against the tide of history by denying human freedom and human dignity to its citizens. It also is in deep economic difficulty. The rate of growth in the national product has been steadily declining since the fifties and is less than half of what it was then. The dimensions of this failure are astounding: A country which employs one-fifth of its population in agriculture is unable to feed its own people…

I have discussed on other occasions, including my address on May 9th, the elements of Western policies toward the Soviet Union to safeguard our interests and protect the peace. What I am describing now is a plan and a hope for the long term — the march of freedom and democracy which will leave Marxism-Leninism on the ash-heap of history as it has left other tyrannies which stifle the freedom and muzzle the self-expression of the people.

He went further in his Evil Empire speech in 1983.

So, in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride — the temptation of blithely declaring yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong and good and evil…

Whittaker Chambers, the man whose own religious conversion made him a witness to one of the terrible traumas of our time, the Hiss-Chambers case, wrote that the crisis of the Western World exists to the degree in which the West is indifferent to God, the degree to which it collaborates in communism’s attempt to make man stand alone without God. And then he said, for Marxism-Leninism is actually the second oldest faith, first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with the words of temptation, “Ye shall be as gods.”

The Western world can answer this challenge, he wrote, “but only provided that its faith in God and the freedom He enjoins is as great as communism’s faith in Man.”

I believe we shall rise to the challenge. I believe that communism is another sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages even now are being written. I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And because it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow man.

We forget what leadership based on the wisdom of conservative, small government principles looks like, because we haven’t seen it on a national scale since Reagan left office. We’ll need to see it again following four years of Barack Obama and his fellow academic elites. -Scott-

More on the Bastardizing of Christianity is back….


They are at it again, trying to make Christmas the bad thing. Only this time, it isn’t the Liberals. It is a muslim lawyer who of course the liberal media had to report. Here is the story:


Muslim preacher Anjem Choudary has branded Christmas “evil” in a sermon posted on the internet.

By Murray Wardrop
The Daily Telegraph (London)

The lawyer, who recently praised the Mumbai terror attacks, urged all Muslims to reject traditional Christmas celebrations, claiming that they are forbidden by Allah.
The 41-year-old shocked Christians and even those of his own faith by branding yuletide festivities as “the pathway to hellfire”.
Choudary, who is chairman of the Society of Muslim Lawyers, ruled out all celebrations, including having a Christmas tree, decorating the house or eating turkey.
In the sermon posted on an Islamic website, he said: “In the world today many Muslims, especially those residing in western countries, are exposed to the evil celebration Christmas.
“Many take part in the festival celebrations by having Christmas turkey dinners.
“Decorating the house, purchasing Christmas trees or having Christmas turkey meals are completely prohibited by Allah.
“Many still practise this corrupt celebration as a remembrance of the birth of Jesus.
“How can a Muslim possibly approve or participate in such a practice that bases itself on the notion Allah has an offspring?
“The very concept of Christmas contradicts and conflicts with the foundation of Islam.
“Every Muslim has a responsibility to protect his family from the misguidance of Christmas, because its observance will lead to hellfire. Protect your Paradise from being taken away – protect yourself and your family from Christmas.”
Choudary is Principal Lecturer at the London School of Shari’ah and a follower of the Islamist militant leader Omar Bakri Mohammed.,
Earlier this year, he led a meeting at the heart of the area where the liquid bombers lived, which warned of a British September 11.

People, this is where we are letting our country down. Our media will flock all over a story like this, but if there was ever a column or story written telling of the virtues of Christmas or Christianity, you would not see it in the drive by media. You would see it, if you did, on a blog like this one, or on Townhall, or hear of it on Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity or something the left does not espouse.

This country was founded on Christian values, not muslim ones, and somewhere somehow sometime, we have to start standing up for the things that we supposedly believe in, and start being assertive again about what this country is and believes. I believe this bastardization of this nation and her beliefes is just another attempt at the destruction of what this country was founded on, as stated in the Constitution and other founding documents. No matter what the liberal media and the politicians try to tell us about it, these documents are very clear in what they say we stand for. Let’s stop letting others make us change what we are, before this nation ceases to exist. And this is not scare mongering, but that day is coming.

Scandals Galore for our Future President and yet…….


We are having scandals galore with the state government of the state of Illinois, where our next president hails from, and he is trying to tell us, as he has all along with all of his acquaintances, that he knew nothing! If he didn’t, then he has an appalling lack of common sense needed to run this country.

In a president, we should want someone with a ‘presence of mind’. a ‘knowledge of what goes on around you’, ‘common sense’, a ‘knowledge of what your acquaintances around you are doing’, especially if what they are doing will affect where you want to go. With Barack Obama, we have none of those. With Barack Hussein Obama, we have someone who wants us to believe that the people he has associated with for years, are doing things he has no clue about. Well people, if he has that little knowledge of what his friends are doing, then he has no right to try to run a country that has to have someone, who knows what is going on. Because it is increasingly crystal clear that Mr. Obama does not.

He associated with William Ayers, the known domestic terrorist, who bombed federal buildings and yet helped Obama kick off his campaign from his own living room. Obama said that it didn’t matter what Ayers had done, because the bombings happened when he (Obama) was a kid. To me, that would be a warning to stay away from the guy in the first place. We all know that he didn’t heed that warning.

Jeremiah Wright last sunday
Jeremiah Wright last sunday
He also wants us to believe that the man who was his “mentor” and practically a “member of his own family”, his words, not mine, for twenty years, Jeremiah Wright, was saying things, and believed things about America, that Obama knew nothing about. Well, for some of it, I can probably agree with, but Obama belonged to the church that Reverend Wright was pastor of, for twenty plus years. The man married Barack and Michelle! The man baptized their children! You can’t tell me that Barack Obama didn’t know of Reverend Wrights wrong view of America. I have belonged to many churches in my life, and even when younger, knew of the ideals that my pastor always stood for. Especially if he baptized my children, I would want to know what the man stood for.

Now you may ask why I have to bring up Jeremiah Wright again. I bring him up because the man is back again, and like I predicted some months ago, when He was a big thing in the undriveby media, Jeremiah Wright stuck his foot in it again on Sunday, December 7th, 2008. Doing just what the democrats always do when it comes to America, and that is tear down what we stand for, when he said:


“Today is December 7th, the day that this government killed over 80,000 Japanese civilians at Hiroshima in 1941, two days before killing an additional 64,000 Japanese civilians at Nagasaki by dropping nuclear bombs on innocent people.”

Now, I am not kidding here. He said this. This is a man that Barack Obama said was like family to him, and he couldn’t turn away from, just several short months ago! This quote, was made at the Trinity Church in Chicago this last Sunday when the Reverend Wright took to the podium again. The day of course was Pearl Harbor day. The day that was NOT marked by the Japanese being attacked and having 80,000 civilians killed, but it was in fact the day we were attacked by the Japanese, killing thousands of Americans. The day that the “good” Reverend Wright was talking about was actually over 4 years later, when we dropped the two bombs to help end the war! A war started by the JAPANESE! And on my Sunday show on Blog Talk Radio at 3 pm eastern time, I have the audio of that clip, and in it you will actually hear applause after he said that we killed 80,000 Japanese civilians. Is this nuts? I grew up in an America, where people like this nutcase didn’t get the notoriety of the drive by media, or the television. Men like this didn’t get applause. Men like this were looked upon like the trash that they are and the unAmerican ideals that they stood for, and then they were dismissed as nutcases. But not anymore. Heck, we even elected someone for president, that most people didn’t know thing one about! Now that is nuts personafied. How’s that for sending a country down the tubes? Heaven help us, if we keep heading down this road of self destruction that we are on.

Tom Colburn of Oklahoma telling it like it is…..again.


If you remember a few months ago, I did a show on Blog Talk Radio that ran an account of the last time that Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, spoke out against the liberals and their constant attacks against the United States and what she stands for. Just like Conservatives should be doing.

Well folks, he was at it again today, when he spoke on the Automobile bale outs that the government seems intent on paying for. OF course, he is against it. Here is what he said, and then I will give you my take on what he was saying there:

COBURN: In 2007, GM sold 9.37 million cars worldwide. Toyota, that same year, sold 9.37 million cars worldwide. GM lost 38.7 billion. Toyota made 17.7 billion. Therein lies the problem.

Now, finally, a politician who gets it. And gets it good. General Motors in 2007 sold 9.37 million cars worldwide, and Toyota that same year (2007) sold 9.37 million cars. Now get that figure folks. It is the same number of cars, give or take a few, but here is the bottom line…..General Motors lost 38.7 BILLION dollars! Toyota? They didn’t lose money. They actually made 17.7 billion. And he is right. Therein lies the problem. Why is it, that the two can sell the same number of cars, and the income be so different? I will tell you why. Because of the Unions and the Government and all the stipulations on the Auto makers to make a certain kind of car, they are now going under. Toyota doesn’t have to deal with all of that. All of the regulations, and fuel calculations and blends that the auto makers have to make their cars run with, are hurting them, and they are also hurting the consumer too.

Here is what is going on with this stupid bale out. The government is going to put a stipulation into the bale out that makes the Auto makers manufacture cars that the American public does not want, but, in the future will have to have, because the government is going to make them mandatory. No other cars will be available and the ones that we are driving now, will be outlawed. And it will all be in the name of saving the earth from Global Warming which by the way is being disproved over and over again, every day. But, through the automakers we are being made to pay out the nose for something that isn’t really happening, and the big three automakers here in the U.S. are being made to pay too. And this whole thing isn’t working people.

The American automakers could learn a lot from the way that Toyota is running things. They would again succeed if they did what Toyota is doing. Get rid of the Unions. Get rid of the regulations. Get rid of all the “green” rules that are destroying this country, and it’s businesses. Tom Coburn has it right. Sad that no one in the right places will listen. Because what he is stating, would save the Big three if they would start looking at the bottom line. And we the people need to start speaking out too.

One of the things that the people in Washington, who supposedly are smart, are coming up with for the Automakers is the electric car. But my friends, the electric car is NOT eco friendly. If you go with the talking points of the Liberals and the Global warming crowd you will see that. In order for the electric car to have a charge, it would have to be plugged into an electrical outlet. Where does most of our electrical power come from? COAL! Yes my friends, we burn coal to make our electricity. So if you look at it that way, these new ELECTRIC CARS that the government is pushing so hard to get manufactured, are not as green as they would have you believe. Sure, when they are running, they are non polluting machines, but, when their batteries need charging…..then there is the carbon footprint again. Did you hear that one mr AL GORE?
We have more things coming down the pike that are NOT going to be good for this nation too. Obama wants to raise your taxes….don’t let him think otherwise.

Obama wants to go to the Muslim world when in office and give his first big speech to the Muslims, telling them that we all need to work together.

People, if it was that simple, it would have been done a long time ago. That isn’t the problem in that area. The Muslims *the radical ones anyway* and the Islamic Terrorists *note the word that the media in this country is afraid to use*, do not like us Americans, and it would make them happy if we would just disappear. With desires like that, no amount of talk will help us, because they do not like our way of life and they will not stop fighting us until we either change to their way, or die. That is one point that Obama just does not get. And I do not think he ever will. But we had better get it…..and soon. We are in for a long four years, and our war for our freedoms and rights have just begun. We are going to lose this war if we don’t start fighting for our rights. And for you people who do not understand this thinking, if we lose this war on us, we lose our rights and freedoms too. Simple as that. We need to stand up and let our government know that, under no uncertain terms. And starting with the Automobile makers, this bale out is not the way to go. PERIOD!

OBAMA: Elected because of Promises of Change and Better times…..


….and now, he’s going back on all of those so called promises. And yet, NO ONE is calling him on it. It has been said before, and it bears repeating again. If he was a Republican, or a Conservative, *and no they are not the same anymore*, he would be called on it by everyone, from the democrats in office, to the media, to the hollywood know-it-alls. But, since he is a democrat, and a liberal one at that, and because he is their, so-called messiah, nothing is being said, and nothing will be said, at least by them anyways. They, after all have too much vested in getting him elected, that nothing, not even the question of his eligibility to be president, will be brought up by them.

And actually, right now, there is another lawsuit back in the supreme court, on that very subject, and if Obama wants this to go away, he needs to “actually” produce for examination, his birth certificate.

But, here is what I think he is doing. I feel that since he refuses to show it, that he is actually hiding something and/or stalling for time, so he can get a fake one made to qualify him.

But his promises to the American public don’t seem to mean diddly squat either. He promised Change and yet he is bringing in the third term of the Clinton Cabinet, and not bringing in change at all. It’s “more of the same”, as usual.

His tax “cuts” that he supposedly promised, though never actually meaning it, have already been abandoned by the wayside by him, when he said that ‘the middle class would not miss not getting the tax cuts right now.’

His promise to pull out of Iraq within 16 months of his election has also been pushed to the way side, thank God. At least for now.

He promised us better times when elected, yet, now he has backed off, by saying that it’s going to get much worse before it gets better. HUH???

People, we all knew all this before the election, and so did Obama. So, why did he lie to us on all of those so called promises? I can tell you, the answer is simple. They were made to get him elected, and to keep pushing the lie that the Republicans are to blame for all the mess that we are in now. NOTHING MORE! The trouble is, the democrats are to blame for a lot of what we are now going through.

Democrats like Barney Frank who said that Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were not in trouble, and no help was needed….Democrats like Nancy Pelosi who doesn’t flinch when she talks down to Americans. Democrats like Harry Reid who thinks that Americans who come to Washington D.C. as tourists, stink. Jack Murtha who thinks our troops are rapists and murderers. John Kerry who thinks the same things about them. And every one of these, plus many more of the Democrats in Washtington, think that our Constitution has to be changed and/or gotten rid of. And people, ignoring what our government is telling us now, that our Constitution is out of touch and out of time, is not the way to go. It is really the document that will keep this nation strong and free, but only if WE THE PEOPLE will stop being content that the government will do right by us, then stand up and protect it from the people in our government, who are doing their best to undermine it. And if you do not think they are trying to change it or destroy it, look at what we have going here:

The Constitution gives each and every one of us the right to lawfully own and bear arms. Yet, our government is actively taking those rights away from us. Why do you think that there has been such a huge run on guns since Obama won the election? It’s because he wants to eliminate the Second Amendment giving us that right. And we are not doing anything to stop this trend!!!

the Constitution gives us the right to worship our God, no matter how we percveive him, or if we don’t wish to worship at all. Yet, Christianity is under attack and being bastardized all across our nation, while taxpayers are now being made to pay for Muslin foot prayer baths in our schools to accommodate our FEW Muslim students, yet, anything that is Christian in nature is banned from the schools. And we are not doing anything to stop this trend!!!

People, I have said this until I am almost blue in the face, yet it seems it needs to be repeated again. A Right is harder to get back, once it is lost than it would be if it was never lost.. And we are allowing our government to steal our rights away from us without even blinking an eye. And this is something that we do not have to allow.

The Constitution starts with the words WE THE PEOPLE for a reason my friends. It is because the government is NOT there to rule over us…..as a lot of the Politicians in Washington D.C. now think, instead, they are there to represent us and America. And, WE THE PEOPLE have the power to make them return to that form of government. And if we do not stand up for our rights soon, we are going to wake up some day wondering just where our freedoms have gone. This isn’t scare-mongering as the liberals love to accuse us of being, and no doubt will, it is the God’s truth.

You want to continue losing your rights and freedoms to an ever growing government, then go ahead, but do not complain when you find out your rights are gone.

As for me, I am mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore! You politicians in Washington are NOT there to rule over me. You are there to represent me and America too. Don’t you think, it’s high time you started doing your job, and doing that? I think it is, and I know I am not even close to being alone in this. Start doing the jobs you were elected for, or WE WILL REPLACE YOU.
