Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
And the powers that be now tell us that we cannot use the term War on Terror anymore, then the president starts finding out that maybe Bush was right, all the while blaming him for everything……seems the war is back on….though, with a president that has shown he has no backbone for fighting it.
Today, the news comes out of a new audio recording from none other than Osama bin Laden. The AP News story from Yahoo news states this:
Bin Laden claims Christmas bombing attempt AP

CAIRO – Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day airline bombing attempt in Detroit, in a audio message released Sunday, and vowed further attacks on the U.S.
The message suggests that bin Laden wants to show he remains in direct command of al-Qaida’s many branches around the world.
In the short recording carried by the Al-Jazeera Arabic news channel, bin Laden addressed President Barack Obama saying the attack was a message similar to that of Sept. 11 and more attacks against the U.S. would be forthcoming.
“The message delivered to you through the plane of the heroic warrior Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was a confirmation of the previous messages sent by the heroes of the Sept. 11,” he said.
“America will never dream of security unless we will have it in reality in Palestine,” he added. “God willing, our raids on you will continue as long as your support for the Israelis continues.”
On Christmas Day, Nigerian national Abdulmutallab attempted to blow up the Northwest Airlines flight he was sitting on as it approached Detroit Metro Airport. But the bomb he was hiding in his underwear failed to explode.
He told federal agents shortly afterward that he had been trained and instructed in the plot by al-Qaida operatives in Yemen.
Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula originally took credit for the attack, but by issuing this message, bin Laden seems to be indicating that he himself is ordering attacks, rather than just putting his seal of approval on events afterward.
Analysts had previously suggested that al-Qaida’s offshoots in North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and elsewhere were operated independently from bin Laden, who is believed to be somewhere in Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.
There was no way to confirm the voice was actually that of Bin Laden, but it resembled previous recordings attributed to him.
In the past year, bin Laden’s messages have concentrated heavily on the plight of the Palestinians in attempt to rally support across the region.
Many analysts believe that bin Laden is worried about Obama’s popularity across the Middle East with his promises to withdraw from Iraq and personal background, so the al-Qaida leader is focusing on the close U.S.-Israeli relationship.
The suffering of the Palestinians, especially in the blockaded Gaza Strip where 1,400 died during an Israeli offensive there last year, angered many in the Arab world.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman, Andy David, dismissed the latest al-Qaida message and its attempt to link Israel with attacks on the U.S.
“This is nothing new, he has said this before. Terrorists always look for absurd excuses for their despicable deeds,” he said.
The last public message from bin Laden appears to have been on Sept. 26, when he demanded that European countries pull their troops out of Afghanistan. The order came in an audiotape that also warned of “retaliation” against nations that are allied with the United States in fighting the war.
It seems that history teaches, but we refuse to learn at times. History teaches us, that a strong defense is the best for keeping a country safe, yet we continue to find presidents who think just the opposite. The one we have now is NO different. He thinks that America has no need to defend herself against aggression for he feels there is none, as he continues to ‘posture himself with pretended patriotism. ‘ It’s all for show. Nothing more.
Oh sure, he is saying different now, but that is only because his poll numbers are way down and he knows if he doesn’t posture himself better for the American people, he will not get anything he wants. What he really feels, he is hiding right now, because it doesn’t help his cause. It is like George Washington said: “Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.” That is something that we have to start doing.
OUR first president warned us against this, and yet……we continue to ignore all the warnings. We allow this man to come on national television and give his stupid Speech the other night and tell us things that we inherently know are wrong, but he is cheered for it. Are we allowing ourselves to be duped into being stupid puppets of the current regime? Or of any regime for that matter? I say yes we are.
But we do not have to continue being this way. Americans are waking up to the fact that their beloved country is under attack. Not just from without from people like Osama bin Laden, but also from the inside, by people like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Chuck Schumer, John Kerry. The list goes on and on……sadly.
Their continuing posturing for pretended patriotism is evident to all who will look, but not to ones who follow like lemmings over the cliff of Socialism.
To them, the only way to go, is down. The trouble with that is, when they go down, they take the rest of us with them. And that is a problem, because the rest of us do not feel that way.
I have railed against Obama and his Chicago styled politics ever since the first time I heard of what he was about. Who he was friends with. Who helped start his campaign. Who he considered so close they were like members of his own family. The Jerimiah Wright’s, the William Ayers, the American hating pastor of his church, the domestic terrorist who befriended him, people that Obama held close to him as friends and confidants, told me that this man was not one to be entrusted with the security and keys to the running of this country. Things that the 51% of the voting electorate felt the need to ignore. And now my friends, we are all paying for it.
We are in the middle of a war that this man has no courage to fight, and yet for America’s future we have to fight it, and win. Thank God he is losing elections now. The latest one in Massachusetts.
We are being threatened from the outside, and from the inside, and yet we ignore it at the highest levels. I hope and pray that no more aggression comes from the outside until we have in place, leaders who have the backbone to fight when needed……instead of finding reasons to back down while trying to sound tough…..which is what we have now.
God Help us in the next few years. We Americans know that this country is great and we ask for Your supreme help in keeping us safe till we can start helping in doing it ourselves. Help protect our borders and our nation and our people, from Obama, Osama bin Laden and anyone else who wishes harm to this great country. AMEN.
God Bless America, and Israel, our people and our troops
