Tenet Attempts to Cover Buttocks


There is something fishy about George Tenet. He has begun his public appearances to publicize his tell-all book “At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA.” Tenet is basically lining up on the Democratic Party side pertaining to the invasion of Iraq.

My first reaction is: What in the world was President Bush
retaining an intelligence Director from the Clinton Administration. That was dumb.

My second reaction is: Tenet is telling
a different story in his book than what he told Congressional hearings that led to the invasion of Iraq. That makes Tenet a liar who does not want history to blame him if the Democrats write the history books.

Tenet originated the expression that it was a “slam dunk” that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) in Saddam’s Iraq. There is even an implication that the
lack of finding WMD was a cover-up (by unknown agencies or people) because lack of military man power allowed Saddam loyalists, Syria or Russia to covertly extricate the WMD. That would be a screw-up that Tenet would probably be aware of.

Victor Davis
Hanson castigates Tenet on differences from book and public statements of record pertaining to al Qaeda involvement in Saddam’s Iraq.

Thanks to Sandy Berger (Clinton’s Chief of Staff)
shredding classified documents that never made it to the pertinent commissions, Thus inaccurate conclusions was made pertaining to WMD and al Qaeda involvement.

1Million Turks to the Streets Against Islamism


At least one million Turks poured into the streets of Istanbul (once Christian Constantinople) to protest radical Islamist policies of the current elected Parliamentary government of Prime Minister Erdogan. Even military elites of Turkey are warning Erdogan to chill with the social Islamist policies of Erdogan’s government.

I have to admit I was dubious of Turkey once Erdogan became Prime Minister with Parliamentary coalition. I had been convinced at that time that Mohammedanism did not have people dynamic enough to transform medieval Sharia thinking to a 21st Century secular democracy. In Muslim lands I am all for the dominant culture to adhere to its foundations such as prayer and rituals; however the penalties of Sharia Law are barbarically medieval.

One million protestors are calling for the secular way established by
Ataturk who abolished many social conventions of Mohammedanism to allow a secular Republic to emerge. Granted Turkey has had its problems: the Turkish military has often abrogated governments that did not follow military guidance.

If Turkish Mohammedans can transform that could be a sign of a socio-religious transformation. If only the Turks could find someone with the charisma of Ataturk’s secularism and the spiritual consciousness of an Imam united as one, then Mohammedanism could join the globe of tolerated and tolerating religions. If not …

The Beginning of Dhimmitude in American Public Schools


I have just learned from a Daniel Pipes column that Brooklyn is opening an Arabic language intensive Public School with the grades ranging from Sixth to the Twelfth.

Pipes began his column by looking at all the positive aspects of an Arab language public institution. The top of the positive list is hardly anyone in America (other than native Arab speakers) speaks or writes Arabic. A truly public secular education could go to great strides for Arabic language people that wish to live in America to assimilate to the American way of life. Then Pipes does list a few other positives.

I will let you read Pipes’ column for the significant negatives of an Arabic Language Public School.

Here is my chief concern: an Arabic speaking Public School (i.e. government tax supported) also providing for Mohammedans to worship. Mohammedans pray five times daily toward Mecca. I do not have a problem with that this is a free nation.

The problem I have is that Christian prayer is prohibited in American Public Schools while this Arabic Public School no doubt will prevail upon the School District to allow Mohammedan rituals such as prayer and ceremonial foot washing and so on. In American schools in which Christianity is still the pre-dominate faith (though currently largely undermined by Secular Humanism) prayer, Bible clubs, Christmas celebrations and Easter plays or anything that might connote Christian faith is attacked and prohibited.

If Mohammedanism is allowed to be ritually practiced then those
that wish to practice Christianity in American Public Schools should be allowed to do so.

One huge negative Daniel Pipes has about the Madrassas Public School is that instead of promoting American assimilation, the school would rather teach the symbols of hate that Islamist propagandists already exercise in private schools and mosques. These Islamist programs are largely funded by
Wahhabi Sunnis from Saudi Arabia or Shi’ites from radical Iran via Hezbollah.

One last point I want readers to dwell on pertaining to Daniel Pipes’ column. The Principal Designate although well qualified academically is a Pan-Arab nationalist that criticizes the War on Terror and is sympathetic to radical Islamist teachings. Dhabah ("Debbie") Almontaser actually has the credentials to teach both Left Wing and Islamist ideology (even if they are diametrically opposed ideologies).

YOU REALLY MUST READ DANIEL PIPES’ COLUMN TO REVIEW THE CITATION LINKS HE UTILIZES!

Al-Iraqi is Evidence the War on Terror is Still Serious


The Times Online reports that Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi was the master mind behind the al Qaeda’s suicide bombings in London on July 7. The British have nick named the atrocity 7/7 much as Americans know the attack on American soil as 9/11.

This means that al-Iraqi is Britain’s version of Usama bin Laden – a butcher of innocent non-combatants for political purposes of terror.

The
Jawa Report speculates the arrest of six former al Mujahiroun Islamists (who seem to have changed their name to “The Base,” which is English for al Qaeda) may have a connection to the announcement that al-Iraqi was being transformed to Guantanamo.

Strata-Sphere berates Democrats on their “Get out of Iraq” meme by noting al-Iraqi entered Iraq via hegemon wanna be Iran.

The point to Appeasement minded head buried in the sand Leftists of America and Europe is the War on Terror is still here. The War on Terror is STILL an Islamist agenda to terrorize the globe to convert into Mohammedanism. Every time an American Democrat or EU Leftist wishes to run like a dog with its tail between its legs, Islamist terrorists at home and abroad sense victory at hand.

Appeasers and Leftists are selling their souls into dhimmitude.

Richard Land on the Evangelical Choice


Naomi Schaefer Riley writes the run down on Evangelical king maker Richard Land, the Southern Baptist Convention’s representative in Washington, DC.

Certainly Land is not the only Evangelical influence for the Republican Party; however he does represent the largest Protestant Denomination in America. Thus Land’s opinion does carry some weight on the nomination process.

Read about Land’s concept of who would be the
most approved Evangelical nominee for Republican President.

U.S. raids target al-Qaida in Iraq


Is it a coincidence that shortly after the announcement of al-Iraqi’s capture that various operations collared al Qaeda insurgents complete with imported weapons from Iran?

The Bush Administration is sending a message to bin Laden and Ahmadinejad that he still has bite to go with his bark pertaining to the War on Terror. This bite is regardless of cut-n-run defeatists like Senator Reid who have publicly surrendered to al Qaeda.

Israel Prepares for Syrian Rush for Golan Heights


The Olmert government in Israel is expecting hostilities with Syria. If Syria invades Israel that should just about render the United Nations a bogus International body that enforces world peace. The United Nations only worth now is as an international food and training organization. Without any teeth the charitable portion may be defunct.

I digress.

The Israel Defense Force (IDF) is running training exercises in preparation of a long rumored Syrian invasion. Syria became emboldened by successful tactics that client terrorist organization Hezbollah used in Lebanon.

The global question that will be complicated: What will America and the EU do if such an invasion occurs? If Iran honors its mutual alliance agreement with Syria, will Iran join Syria in fracas? Again, if Iran joins with Syria, what will America and the EU nations do? For that matter, what will Russia and China do?

The whole scenario reminds me of how World War One began with the assassination of the
Archduke Franz Ferdinand in today’s Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo). Arab greed for Israel’s sliver of land and a Syrian invasion could spark another World War (WWIII or WWIV depending on who you read).

Is Reid Correct? Naaaaaaaaa!


Senator Reid has heinously surrendered to radical Islamists with consulting the Executive Branch of the U.S. government. Since he obviously an untrustworthy fellow, I doubt the Bush Administration has divulged its successes to the turncoat.

I say all this because Reid (hopefully) learned of the recent capture of a top Al Qaeda operative inside of Iraq the same I did; i.e. through the media. Incidentally Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi was nabbed in Iraq passing over from Iran. Hmmm? Is the Shi’ite Theocrat nuthouse cooperating with Al Qaeda?

Anyway,
Captain’s Quarters has some how acquired a delineation of information about Abd al Hadi al-Iraqi.

VDH: Is the War on Terrorism over?


Victor Davis Hanson poses the scholarly question: Is the War on Terror over?

Hanson then proceeds to all the Leftist pundits and politicians of America and Europe that publicly imply the word “war” is now not the correct term to use concerning conflict with Mohammedan Jihadists.

Then (Thank God) Hanson proceeds with the implications that the Leftists and centrists are thinking moronically scoring a success to Jihadist intimidation.

The Democratic Party Attack on Christianity


John R. Houk
© April 26, 2007


The attack on Christianity in America is on the increase. Democrats have introduced legislation (similar posts
HERE and HERE) that will make the preaching and teaching and sharing of Biblical Christianity a hate crime. Democrats in droves in Congress are the prime movers of this legislation. The same Democrats that the majority of the American electorate put into the majority in Congress over disillusionment with President Bush will put their Pastors and Evangelists in jail. Americans have given Congress authority to validate homosexuality and the religion of our enemy (Mohammedanism) to enjoy government favor at the suppression of Christianity.


Friends this is an Unconstitutional Bill that challenges the First Amendment of the Constitution. The wording is mired in non-religious terms to disguise the implications to practicing Christians, which is legislating religious speech that comes from a Christian pulpit or forum.


Bob Unruh goes into the specifics of how Christians are being made the bull’s-eye by the Democratic Party legislation.

Christians in bull's-eye in new 'hate crimes' plan
Congress working to create penalties for non-PC views


By Bob Unruh
© 2007
WorldNetDaily.com
Posted: April 26, 2007
1:00 a.m. Eastern


A fast-tracked congressional plan to add special protections for homosexuals to federal law would turn "thoughts, feelings, and beliefs" into criminal offenses and put Christians in the bull's-eye, according to opponents.

"H.R. 1592 is a discriminatory measure that criminalizes thoughts, feelings, and beliefs [and] has the potential of interfering with religious liberty and freedom of speech," according to a white paper submitted by Glen Lavy, of the
Alliance Defense Fund.

"As James Jacobs and Kimberly Potter observed in Hate Crimes, Criminal Law, and Identity Politics, 'It would appear that the only additional purpose [for enhancing punishment of bias crimes] is to provide extra punishment based on the offender's politically incorrect opinions and viewpoints,'" said Lavy.

The proposal has been endorsed by majority Democrats on the committee, and already has 137 sponsors in the full House, making it possible it could be voted on in a matter of days or weeks.

"This is a terrible thing, to criminalize thought or emotion or even speech," Lavy told WND, referring to H.R. 1592, now pending at the committee level in the U.S. House. Democrats there have been turning back amendments that would strip it of its worst provisions, according to an observer.

Bishop Harry Jackson, chairman of the High Impact Leadership Coalition, said the plan, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Protection Act of 2007, is no more than "a surreptitious attempt by some in Congress to strip the nation of religious freedom and the ability to preach the gospel from our church pulpits."

"It will stamp all over our doctrine and practice of our faith," he said. "We believe what the Bible says. If you start there we've got a major problem."

Secondly, it unfairly restricts the expression of fair opinion by Christians, he told WND. "If anything, gays are getting undue deference awarded to them by the courts. That's why we have the same-sex marriage fight and that kind of thing."

Rev. Louis Sheldon, director of the
Traditional Values Coalition, which represents 43,000 churches across the nation, told WND that the Democrats sponsoring and supporting the issue "have sold out to the homosexual agenda."

He said churches need to awaken to the dangers of having pastors, lay leaders, or even those sitting in the pews sent to jail for their biblical views. "When they [realize they] could go to jail for preaching the Word of God, they'll be concerned," he told WND.

Sheldon's organization is releasing a poster showing Jesus as a wanted fugitive, for "crimes" under the planned "hate crimes" legislation.

He also is running an e-mail campaign to alert members of Congress about their constituents' concerns.

WND columnist Janet Folger this week warned in a commentary called "Pastors: Act now or prepare for jail," that in New Hampshire, a crime that typically carries a sentence of 3 1/2 years was "enhanced" to 30 years because a robber shouted an anti-homosexual name at his victim.

"Think about it for a minute. If saying a mean anti-homosexual word adds an additional 23-26 ½ years to a sentence, and people live to around 80, that penalty is one-fourth of your life for the words you say. And while this was in addition to a robbery penalty, how much of a jump would it really be to penalize the speech 'infraction' alone? And just what constitutes an 'anti-gay epithet'? Would an 'anti-gay epithet' be to say, 'Homosexuality is a sin,' or 'Homosexuals should repent'? What if you informed someone that 'Homosexuality is harmful to your health'? If I were you, I wouldn't try it in New Hampshire," Folger wrote.

Folger's organization,
Faith2Action, has launched a series of ads about Philadelphia grandmothers who were thrown in jail in Pennsylvania under that state's "hate crimes" law – and faced the possibility of 47 years in jail – for testifying in public about their Christian faith.

Those ads can be viewed at
StopHateCrimesNow.com.

One, Arlene Elshinnawy, 75, and grandmother of three, was holding a sign: "Truth is hate to those who hate the truth," before she was hauled off by police officers.

The proposal is by U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the head of the House Judiciary Committee.

On Sheldon's website, he warned the bottom line is that in a court of law "cross-dressers rights would trump a pastor's right to preach the Bible, if the so-called Hate Crimes bill … passes."

Bishop Jackson cited well-known cases of the application of such a law in other nations: "In Australia, two evangelical pastors were charged with violating the State of Victoria's 'hate crimes' laws last year for criticizing Islam. In Canada, a Catholic city councilor was fined $1,000 for publicly stating that a gay couple's lifestyle was 'not normal and not natural,'" he said.

“As an African American, I have long questioned the attempts of the homosexual community to piggy back on the legislative breakthroughs blacks have achieved in civil rights. This legislation will not just over-protect homosexuals, it will bring the threat of invasive, governmental interference with the doctrines and practice of the Church. As some homosexual activists chant, ‘Stay out of our bedrooms,’ we are here to say, ‘Stay out of our pulpits!’” said Bishop Jackson.

Lavy's white paper, delivered to Congress just a few days ago, pointed out some of the results if the law is adopted. "It provides a federal remedy for a person who is attacked for promoting homosexual relationships, but not for a person who is attacked for encouraging people to stop engaging in homosexual behavior because it is physically and psychologically harmful," he said. "Worse yet, it provides for federal prosecution of a murderer who spews racial epithets at the victim, but not for a cold-blooded killer that is paid to commit the crime."

"There is no justification for this disparate treatment. Violent crimes should be punished regardless of the characteristics of the victim," he said.

"The emotion of hate is an unfortunate reality of the human experience. But it is not a crime unless accompanied by a criminal action – and even then it is the action that is within the police power of the government, not the emotion." he said. "The reality is that 'hate' crime laws are designed to punish people for what they think, feel, or believe."

And even more problematic, he said, is the inclusion of a definition of 'hate crime' from section 280003(a) of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. "There is legitimate concern that once Congress makes any 'hate' crime a federal offense, the categories of crime will expand to include speech that causes someone to 'feel' intimidated, just as they have in other places such as Australia, Canada, and Sweden," he said.

Lavy's analysis noted that in New Jersey already it is a "hate crime" to communicate in a manner likely to cause "annoyance or alarm."

"One would not expect a reasonable person to feel threatened or feel fear of harm as the result of an innocuous communication. Nevertheless, the entire faculty at Ohio State University's Mansfield campus apparently agreed that university librarian Scott Savage was guilty of threatening behavior for a simple statement in 2006. His 'threat'? Recommending four books for freshman reading… The four books were
"The Marketing of Evil," by [WND Managing Editor] David Kupelian, The Professors by David Horowitz, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis by Bat Ye'or, and It Takes a Family by Sen. Rick Santorum."

The recommendation made three professors feel "unsafe" on campus and the entire faculty voted to file charges of sex discrimination and harassment against Mr. Savage for "anti-gay hate mongering," Lavy wrote. The charges were dismissed later, and
Savage now has responded with a lawsuit against several university professors.

But under the proposal, such a recommended list for reading "could be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney General."

Lavy's evaluation also noted that San Francisco already has stated in a resolution that organizations seeking to minister to those engaged in homosexual behavior "were responsible" for homosexual student Matthew Shepard's death in Wyoming, even though his killers have said they did it for drugs and money.

Under such a new law, advertising its "Love Won Out" conferences, addressing homosexuality, would subject
Focus on the Family to federal prosecution, he said.

At William Patterson University in New Jersey, a student-employee was formally reprimanded for saying he didn't want to receive promotional e-mails advocating for the lesbian lifestyle, because that sent a message of a "threat," Lavy said.


Furthermore, statistics show that during 2004 there were only 774 actual "hate crimes" recorded, five murders, four rape and the rest assaults – all of which can be prosecuted without special federal laws, he said.

Rev. Ted Pike, of the
National Prayer Network, has been especially active in warning Christians of the approaching danger.

"Most persons who are concerned about imminent passage of the federal 'anti-hate' bill don't realize that S. 1105 in the Senate and H.R. 1592 in the House are actually amendments to a federal hate law passed in 1969. During the height of the civil rights movement, 'Title 18, U.S.C., Sec. 245' stipulated that no one could verbally '…attempt to…intimidate' another person (chiefly black) away from enjoyment of their federally protected right to equal employment, public services, housing, voting rights, jury privileges, etc. If the government finds such verbal 'intimidation' in a state and state officials are not enforcing these guarantees, the federal government can invade states' rights in local law enforcement, upholding Title 18," he said.

Now, in 2007, he said, "the present hate bill grants [special rights] to homosexuals, transvestites, and transsexuals."

The proposal would make it "federally indictable to '…attempt to…intimidate' a homosexual from believing that he (even if he has AIDS or hepatitis) has the right to work in a restaurant, be employed as a police officer or summer camp counselor, or has equal rights to housing and employment anywhere he wishes," he said.

"A pastor, Christian broadcaster or publisher who verbally attempts to 'intimidate' homosexuals by describing homosexuality as an abomination (Lev. 18:22) are thus high-profile targets for indictment under this legislation," he said.

He noted that it also would be illegal for a Christian church to discriminate against an applicant as pastor because of his homosexuality or her lesbianism.

He said the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith has been leading the charge for such crime bills for years, and has explained
on its website how its campaign already has installed laws at the state level.

Michael Marcavage, director of
Repent America, Peter LaBarbera, of Americans for Truth, Brad Dacus, of Pacific Justice Institute, and others already have expressed their alarm.

Eleventh Plague Deadly to Israel


Apparently Israel has an extreme problem with their extreme Left just as America with its extreme Left. Israel’s Left Wingers are actually on the side of Palestinian Arabs that desire the destruction of Israel and Jewry. Now there is a mindset of delusional national suicide in the making.

Israel’s Left might as well build the jackets that contain suicide bombs that kill Jews. This makes our Lefties look tame in comparison. America’s Lefties actually think they are pro-American when they promote the end of Christian morality, the end of the freedom of speech of Christians (Christianity offends homosexuals and Mohammedans), the end of a war that could ultimately bring security to America and to the globe as well, etc., etc. and etc. The Jewish delusional Left means Jewish extermination.

Bill Mehlman describes the Leftist Jewish virus as
the Eleventh Plague particularly virulent in Israeli Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs). Only this plague could be the death of Israel unlike the Ten Plagues that liberated Hebrew slaves from the dark oppressive grip of the Egyptian Pharaoh.

Rabushka on the Flat Tax


I am a huge proponent of a flat tax. Part of the reason tax reform toward a flat tax in America is because bureaucratic civil servants may have the jobs affect and those that depend on 501 3c non-profit tax deductible donations might be against the Flat Tax. I am certain there are other reasons as well; however tax accounting is not my forte.

Every once in a while I come across a Flat Tax plan. When that happens I like to post it to see if I can elicit a discussion from those of you that know. It has not happened yet.

Here is a link to
Econ Talk which has a pod cast or mp3 download to listen to. It is a little over an hour. Listen to it as you have time and tell me what you think of Alvin Rabushka of Stanford University on the Flat Tax: “Rabushka on the Flat Tax.”

This is cross posted to
SlantRight.com which also has a written summary of the audio.

A hat tip is owed to

Republican Presidential Ifs all Surrounding a Thompson Entrance


I was reading an article attributed to Dick Morris and Eileen McGann in the Jewish World Review today. The article seemed very supportive of Fred Thompson to commit for a run for the Republican nomination for President. I myself believe that Thompson is an articulate persona as President Reagan was. I believe he will appeal to the Christian Right, right wingers such as the NRA and so forth.

The Morris/McGann article questions Thompson’s reluctance to enter the race early might be a death knell to a later entry. The article reasons a later entrance will imply an image of lack of stick to it-ness which portrays leadership fragility in confronting a wild cat say like Hillary Clinton.

Morris/McGann point out that an early entrance by Obama circumscribed a Gore entry on the Democratic side; thus Thompson entrance NOW could circumscribe a possible Newt Gingrich (who I also like) entrance into Presidential politics.

Then Morris/McGann goes into all the what-ifs the Republicans and Thompson might face as Super Tuesday approaches in February 2008. Morris/McGann accuses Rudy Giuliani as being in the mold of old Rockefeller (pro-business yet center/left). The implication being if Thompson does not enter soon, Giuliani will have nearly unstoppable momentum. Giuliani is quite popular with everyday Joe Republican because of the strength of leadership he demonstrated during 9/11.

I personally think that Giuliani has too many skeletons in his closet to defeat a cagey Clinton gang. Because of Giuliani’s skeletons it would be tough to attack Clinton skeletons. I don’t think Newt Gingrich can defeat the Clinton Gang, he just comes across as too nice of guy for the old wild cat gang. I do believe Gingrich would make an excellent leader as President; one does not acquire Speaker of the House without skills. Unfortunately those are closed door skills that politicians rarely show publicly. I do not think Newt’s open door election skills can compete with the Clinton gang. I betray my disdain for Mormonism as a cultic off-shoot from Christianity that has the appearance of ancient Gnostics more than the orthodoxy practiced by Christians. Mitt Romney morals may be impeccable, but it would be like voting for an anti-Christian. However I have to tell you, I would vote for Romney before I would for any Left Wing Democrat.

I am sure there are other Republicans I am leaving out; however the ones I have written about are the ones I am thinking about (I guess I could throw Brownback in there and maybe others). It is the idea of a slick speaker and a quick wit like Fred Thompson that I am really drawn to. In that I am like Morris/McGann:
RUN FRED, RUN…NOW!

Iraq Poll Numbers Improve!


This is an email from the desk of Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward. This is the nemesis to the anti-war defeatists MoveOn.org and their ilk. As of yet Move America Forward does not have a sugar daddy like George Soros and is reliant on patriots who believe in winning rather than loosing. Yes it is a pitch for money.

Everybody wants a buck for their cause and there just may not be enough bucks to support every pet project you give mental assent. Squeeze some bucks for this worthy cause.

Iraq Poll Numbers Improve!

Mon 4/23/2007 12:44 PM
Move America Forward Email


I'm sure you've all heard the news accounts that Senate leader Harry Reid says the mission of our troops in Operation Iraqi Freedom has failed and that America has "LOST."

Senator Harry Reid has once again waved the white flag of surrender in the war on terrorism.

Now just stop and think - if you were an Islamic jihadist who was active in, or supportive of, the war against the "infidels" in the West, how would you feel.

Don't you think that these kinds of comments and actions by the likes of Senator Reid embolden our terrorist enemies? Don't you think that this sends a message to the terrorists that the way to defeat America is by resorting to more violence and more attacks, knowing that they can outlast the weak resolve of American politicians like Harry Reid?

If you are as disappointed and disgusted with Senator Harry Reid as I am, and if you want to help Move America Forward fight back in the battle for support of our troops that is playing out here at home, then please, I urge you to make a financial contribution to Move America Forward right now.

When we hear defeatist comments made by people like Senator Harry Reid, our response is to redouble our efforts and fight back even stronger.

Please, support our efforts including our current national pro-troop ad campaign. Give as generous of a contribution as you can (it's tax deductible) - $500, $1,000, $5,000 or more:

France: Sarkozy, Royal in presidential runoff


In first round voting in France, French voters set up a second round that will define a battle of ideas: Conservative VS Socialism.

Sarkozy attained more votes than socialist rival Segolene Royal. Nicolas Sarkozy is Right Wing and Royal is Left Wing. If Royal wins, she will be France’s first female President. If Sarkozy wins, there could be a huge impact of diplomatic friendship between America and France.

Left Wing President Chirac has been openly anti-Bush in international policy. Sarkozy has said some pro-Bush statements earlier in his political days.

Judge suspended for jailing immigrants without bail


I know I am little late with this information since it is dated April 19 and it is nearing April 23 as I type. So some of you guys and gals may already be privy.

Judge Sue Carol Browning was sent before the Judicial Conduct Commission in Kentucky and there upon suspended from the bench April 28 through May 12.

What was Judge Browning’s misconduct? She jailed Mexicans without proof of residence until Federal authorities verified their status as legal or illegal. Furthermore the jailing was without bail. Thus Browning’s
judicial peers (evidently lefties) suspended her for misconduct.

Supreme Court Decision and the Fabric of Christian Morality


Christians that believe in the principles that America was founded upon also believe one of those principles is that the Hand of God was instrumental in the creation of the United States of America.

Many Secular Humanists enjoy pointing out that many of the Founding Fathers were
Deist rather than Christian. And you know what, from what I have read the Secular Humanists may be largely correct.

On the other hand the conclusions extrapolated from the Secular Humanists are way off base. The
Deists continually pointed to Christian morality as the foundation for the rule of law and a moral society for an emerging America. Further more the American Revolution and subsequent founding of Constitutional government is sandwiched between the two Great Awakenings of Christian revival in America. So indeed, Christian morality is the foundational moral fabric of the United States of America.

I believe the Hand of God was instrumental in guiding the
Supreme Court of the United States of America in its 5-4 vote to uphold the ending of partial birth abortions. I believe the Hand of God will eventually influence the revoking Roe VS Wade.

Will the Clinton Teflon Machine Start Operation?



This is not new. I have read about the disgruntled Peter Franklin Paul who was ruined by the Clintons in a contract dispute. Paul claims to have the smoking gun that will bury Hillary Clinton because it proves Bills complicity in Paul’s ruination.

I always take a wait and see attitude when any mud is tossed on the Clintons. A
series of people have died mysteriously that could have implicated the Clintons in various nefarious affairs of life. Clinton cronies have even destroyed Classified material (with only a slap on the wrist penalties) to keep the mud away from the Clinton legacy.

There is a notorious list known as the
Clinton Body Count that has been debunked by Snopes as an urban legend. I have always regarded Snopes as the gospel of Urban Legend debunking; however Snopes goes logically on what can be proved. There is no proof or Teflon Clinton would have been buried long ago. Go ahead compare the Body Count with Snopes, if you use an open mind it is just too hard to miss a connection. AND YET the lack of proof backs Snopes.

As to Peter Franklin Paul;
if he actually has the smoking gun, it will be interesting if the evidence or Paul survives.

MoveOn Snags Stone For Ad Campaign


Anti-war strategists have formed a union of cooperation to start placing anti-war TV ads to propagandize Americans to choose defeat above victory. MoveOn.org and Oliver Stone (the Hollywood Left representative) and other Left Wing treasonous organizations are collaborating in this despicable ploy.

This is an indication that the Left is descending to greater lows in their belief of Appeasement toward radical Islamists. An appeasement they believe in loosing in Iraq like loosing in Vietnam will bring a global disengagement between Islamists and America. This is a delusional dream. Running from Iraq will encourage the Islamists that their agenda is successful and will encourage greater depths heinous acts not only against America but America’s allies and the West in general.

The VT Massacre and What it Means to the War on Terror


Emilio Karim Dabul Has wrote an interesting article that processes the Virginia Tech Massacre with radical Islamists in mind. It is something to ponder. Dabul’s theme is that if a crazed student with a little education under his belt can unilaterally kill 32 people at a major University, what then are the capabilities of organized radical Mohammedans that reside or sneak into America?

Ismail Ax: The Shooter Was Another 'Son of Sacrifice'


Here is some more information on Cho Seung-Hui that is new to me but may be old news to some of the readers. It relates to the words written in red on Cho’s arm: Ismail’s Ax.

Jerry Bowyer writing for TCS Daily makes the Mohammedan connection. Not that Cho was a Mohammedan; however Cho seemed to relate to the Mohammedan version of Abraham and his son by a slave concubine Hagar. The English translation has that son’s name as Ishmael, according Bowyer the Arabs prefer “Ismail.”

Is it not interesting that the
religion of peace mythology was associated with the Virginia Tech massacre.

Ismail Ax: The Shooter Was Another 'Son of Sacrifice'

By Jerry Bowyer
18 Apr 2007
TCS Daily

First it was Johnny Muhammad, now it was Cho Sueng Hui aka Ismail Ax. Precisely how many mass shooters have to turn out to have adopted Muslim names before we get it? Islam has become the tribe of choice of those who hate American society. I'm not talking about people who grew up as Muslims, confident and secure in their faith, good fathers, sons and neighbors. I'm talking about the angry, malignant, narcissist loners who want to reject their community utterly, to throw off their 'slave name' and represent the downtrodden of the earth by shooting their friends and neighbors.

This morning I read that the Virginia Tech shooter died with the name Ismail Ax written in red ink on his arm. The mainstream press doesn't seem to have a clue as to what this might mean. To quote Indiana Jones, "Didn't any of you guys go to Sunday School?"

The story starts with a man named Abraham. He is the father of the Jews, the Muslims and the Christians. He was born in Iraq, the son of a wealthy idol manufacturer. He came to believe that there was only one true God and, according to tradition, took up his ax and destroyed his father's idols.

Eventually he left Iraq and moved to what is now known as Israel. He had a son with his concubine whom she named Ishmael. The Muslim world prefers the Arabic spelling of the name: Ismail. Eventually Abraham had a son by his rightful wife and named the son Isaac. Ishmael and his mother were disinherited and sent out into what is now Saudi Arabia. Isaac became the heir.

Eventually, God decided to test Abraham by telling him to kill his son, Isaac. Abraham took up the knife, but God stopped him at the last moment. Isaac lived and eventually became a man of great wealth. Ishmael became a desert warrior chieftain.

The Jews are the descendants of Isaac, the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael.


In the 7th Century, Muhammad, the founder of Islam, re-wrote the story, claiming that Ismail was the true faithful descendant of Abraham and that it was he, not Isaac, who God told Abraham to sacrifice. Ismail was the one saved. For Muslims, Ismail (not Isaac) was the true 'Son of Sacrifice.' In the original version of the story, Abraham used a knife, in some of the later Muslim versions, he used an Ax.

Flash forward 1,400 years: a sullen, angry young man who rages against rich people and apparently against Christians, writes a play in which a mother and son try to kill his step-father, but in the end the boy (age about 13, the age many think Ismail was when he was exiled) is murdered by the step-father with 'a deadly blow'. Father issues? Yeah, I think so.

Cho Sueng-hui ***** Ismail Ax hated the American society to which he had been brought 15 years earlier. His play McBeef (a poor pun from an English Lit major on Macbeth) is one endless screed against the corruption of American culture. A cheesy re-telling of Shakespeare's Hamlet, it involves a young man abused by his step-father, a former NFL football player. The son, throws epithets at his father calling him a 'Catholic priest'. And makes derisive comments about McDonalds. It seems that none of the foundational structures of Western Civilization, Christianity, capitalism, family, are spared his rage. In other words, he really meant what he said in his last words: "you (that is us, America) made me do this."

Netanyahu Going Into Action to Topple Olmert


Israeli politics may spell the end of the inept Prime Minister Olmert and his Kadima Party. There is the appearance that right wing Likud will pick up 30 to 35 Parliamentary seats which should be more than enough to form a coalition that will make Kadima the minority. To the majority go the spoils of election victory meaning Netanyahu could become the new Prime Minister.

Netanyahu Going Into Action to Topple Olmert

by Gil RonenPublished: 04/18/07, 9:34 PM

IsraelNationalNews.com

(IsraelNN.com) Likud Chairman and head of the Opposition Binyamin Netanyahu has decided to abandon his wait-and-see strategy and to launch a public campaign for toppling Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's government. In a rally held Tuesday at the Likud headquarters building 'Metzudat Ze'ev' in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu reportedly told his supporters "this government has to go home and we need to start acting to make this happen."

He told them to begin holding weekly protest vigils every Friday in busy intersections throughout Israel as well as street demonstrations. "The slogan is simple," he said: "'You've Failed – Go Home'."

According to NRG, the meeting was attended by dozens of Likud branch chairmen and other central activists from all parts of Israel. Netanyahu informed them of a working plan for country-wide protest vigils with the intention of creating an atmosphere conducive to bringing down the government. Netanyahu assured the activists that he would be joining the protests on a regular basis.

Netanyahu's move appears to be timed with precision, as the date of release of the interim report by the Winograd Commission approaches. The Winograd Commission was appointed to investigate failures in the conduct of the Second Lebanon War last summer and is expected to have harsh criticism for the government and its heads. Prime Minister Olmert has received record-setting low marks of support in the polls, one of which recently gave him an amazingly low 3% support level – less than the margin of error.

The polls also predict the Likud will receive 30 to 35 Knesset seats – compared to its present representation of 12 MKs. The polls have consistently predicted an election outcome that would make it possible for Netanyahu to handily form a coalition based on a partnership with the National Union/NRP and Avigdor Lieberman's Yisrael Beiteinu, which are expected to garner about 20 seats between them, and a haredi religious party like Shas, which is expected to receive about 10 seats. In addition, a recent poll gave Arkadi Gaydamak 9 seats, assuming he will indeed form a political party as he has said he would.

In interviews he gave the press at the start of the Passover holiday, Netanyahu said he felt ripe for the position of Prime Minister and had learned his lessons from his previous term at the government's helm. He also predicted Olmert's government would fall prematurely due to public pressure.

Olmert's government has thus far proven stable, despite its decline in popularity. There is some apprehension among Olmert's opponents who maintain that a deal between Olmert and the media may be in the works, in which the media would prop him up in exchange for his adoption of a far left agenda.

Leading 'gay' blog attacks Farah's Christianity


This article about Joseph Farah is not so much about how homosexuals are attacking Farah but about a plug for Farah’s new book, “Stop the Presses.” Nonetheless the relevance of Farah’s book relating to how the Mainstream Media (MSM) has bought into radical organizations such as represent homosexuals is something that needs to be discussed in a national forum. Obviously that will not occur with the MSM.

So here is
Farah’s plug.

Leading 'gay' blog attacks Farah's ChristianityCompares faith in Jesus with 'fascist mind control'

Posted: April 19, 20071:00 a.m. Eastern

WASHINGTON – When WND Editor Joseph Farah struck out against what he called "organized radical activists" who have taken over America's newsrooms leading to the downfall of the so-called "mainstream media," he figured there would be a strong reaction in some quarters.

Farah, a former big-city daily newspaper editor before launching WND, provides an eyewitness account of how extremists subverted the very nature of the journalistic profession in his new book, "Stop the Presses! The Inside Story of the New Media Revolution."

Farah claims this "coup" inside the press is leading inexorably to the destruction of the institution in America, chipping away at its credibility and audience. He added: "It couldn't happen to a more arrogant bunch of fascist mind-control freaks."

But a leading blog catering to homosexuals took exception.

"What's funny about all of this is that Farah has never made any secret of his Christian conservative slant," explained Queerty.com. "This group, we feel, has a much bigger claim on 'fascist' mind-control. They do have about 2007 years of practice, after all."

Farah said these kinds of reactions make his point.

"Their opposition is not so much to me and what I say, it is opposition to Christianity itself, which people like this believe has been practicing fascist mind control for two millennia," he said. "Christianity, and its older brother, Judaism, formed the very foundation for Western Civilization, for the moral code that has guided us and defined freedom in this fallen world. When you get right down to the bottom line, it is Christianity, Judaism, the moral code they gave humanity and the Western Civilization that sprang from it that is the enemy of these people. They are fundamentally at war with God."

Farah deals extensively with this subject of the takeover of America's newsrooms by activist groups – among them the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and the Society for Environmental Journalism – in "Stop the Presses!"

"It is interesting," he notes, "that this blogger doesn't really take issue with much of what I say about the state of the media today and how it has been affected by these pressure groups."

The response to Farah's charge begins: "No doubt the face of media's changed in recent years. Nevermind (sic) blogs such as ourselves (sic) – news organizations have made an effort to cover more diverse events, happenings and social groups, including the gay variety."

"They recognize what we all see is true – that the press has bent over backward to appease this radical social movement," Farah says. "What I show conclusively in 'Stop the Presses!' is that this didn't happen by chance. It didn't happen by accident. It didn't happen without pressure. It happened with direction and purpose and with insiders who betrayed the ethical codes of the news profession to get their way."

Many others have addressed issues of media bias before, says Farah. But few other insiders have blown the whistle on the problem. And no one else has exposed the tactics of pressure groups within the press.

Farah says the activists within the media, whether they realize it or not, are mapping a route to their own self-destruction and disfranchisement through the increasingly intolerant and close-minded way they practice their profession.

"Stop the Presses!" explores this issue and many others, including:

· Farah's first-hand account of his efforts at launching WorldNetDaily.com, the largest independent news source on the Internet;
· His battle for survival during the Clinton administration, which audited his news agency and used taxpayer funds to maintain dossiers on him.
· A brief history of the free press that explains what a uniquely American concept it is;
· A look at the role of Google, a search engine company Farah deems to be "evil";
· The impact of Matt Drudge and the way he and those who have followed him have changed the media forever;
· The key role WND played in defeating Al Gore's presidential ambitions in 2000;
· The Middle East as a case study in international media distortion.

The book debuts today with major front-of-store promotional display in Barnes & Noble, as the selection of two major monthly book clubs and with the endorsement of Farah's friends, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter.

Limbaugh said: "Joseph Farah was not just 'present at the creation' of the new media revolution, he helped instigate it. 'Stop the Presses!' is a fascinating and freewheeling look at how a harmonic convergence of politics, personalities and technology has forever changed the way Americans interact with their government, their fellow citizens and the world."

Coulter weighed in: "WorldNetDaily's Joseph Farah is uniquely qualified to tell the real story of the 'new media revolution.' After all, he helped start it. This Patrick Henry of the Internet will have you hoisting a Sam Adams in celebration."

Thought Police Law Aimed at Christians


Here is more info on how the Left is trying to subvert the free speech of Christians by making the preaching of Christian morals illegal.

Although this Christian Newswire article is aimed to theme Christians versus homosexuals, this would also make it a hate crime to criticize the violence and hatred in Mohammedanism.

'Hate Crime' Legislation Sends Grandmas to Jail
National Television Campaign Launched to Expose Danger

ChristianNewsWire
April 18, 2007

WASHINGTON, April 18 /
Christian Newswire/ -- On Tuesday at the terrace of the Cannon House Office Building, Faith2Action began a national television campaign to fight so-called "hate crimes" (H.R. 1592)—legislation which has already sent grandmas to jail at the state level for the "crime" of sharing the Gospel on a Philadelphia public sidewalk. The announcement came as part of a press conference led by the Traditional Values Coalition, a linking partner of Faith2Action.

"This is the most dangerous bill in America," declares Faith2Action President, Janet Folger, host of a live, daily, nationally syndicated radio program, and writer of a weekly column for WorldNetDaily.

On Tuesday, the U.S. House began hearings on the bill that would expand the definition of hate crimes to include "thought crimes" against the homosexual agenda. "HR1592 is about hate – hating free speech, hating equal justice, and hating grandma", said Folger.

Faith2Action began running ads Tuesday, April 17th, featuring Philadelphia grandmothers who were thrown in jail for simply sharing their faith. They were accused of violating Pennsylvania's "hate crimes" law and faced the possibility of 47 years in prison. (The ads can also be seen on the internet at
http://www.stophatecrimesnow.com/) They are scheduled to run on FOX news nationally and in the D.C. Market.

"We must stop it," Folger states, "before they send your grandma, your pastor, or you to jail for sharing your faith or speaking the truth about an agenda that seeks to silence us." Folger's recent article "Conyers' 'Hate Grandma' bill introduced in House" can be found at:
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=54879.

Janet Folger is available for interviews this week and can be reached through Wanda Sanchez at 209.534.0335.


The Pro-Life Revolution is Beginning?


Abortion is probably the central political-religious debate in America since abolitionism and prohibition. The politics of abolition was settled after much American blood was shed with the Union armies defeating the secessionist Confederate armies. Prohibition passed by Constitutional Amendment then was abolished by Constitutional Amendment.

The stage may be set to begin eroding Roe VS Wade with the
recent 5 to 4 Supreme Court decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion. I doubt the abortion issue will lead to a Civil War; however the more the Supreme Court erodes pro-choice/death proponents of abortion the greater the chance Congressmen will allow the people to decide via the Amendment process.

I think the Secular Humanists and Leftists fear just how much Americans entrust in Christian values (maybe not practices) rather than moral relativity. At this point it is a political propaganda war; however if the people decide I believe Christian morality will win the day.

If Christianity wins on abortion, homosexuality will be the next topic of the Amendment process. Powerful (moneyed) Leftists and homosexuals groups are vicious on that issue. The real fight for Christian morality will begin in the next stage.

RICHARD MCBEEF


Below is an introduction to a one act play by Cho Seung-Hui, the young man that stepped into the darkness of his mind and went on a massacre spree at Virginia Tech University.

Many blogs have theories as to the reason of Cho’s mental explosion.
Captain’s Quarters theory speculates that Cho delusionaly related to either radical Mohammedanism or violent fundamentalist Christian cults. Other blogs have other theories, Captain’s Quarters points you in a direction to read the theories.

I am indebted to Captain’s Quarters for leading me to the

Virginia Killer's Violent Writings
April 17, 2007


Play told of pedophilic stepfather, murder of 13-year-old boyAPRIL 17--The college student responsible for yesterday's Virginia Tech slaughter was referred last year to counseling after professors became concerned about the violent nature of his writings, as evidenced in a one-act play obtained by The Smoking Gun. The play by Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old English major, was submitted last year as part of a short story writing class. Entitled "Richard McBeef," Cho's bizarre play features a 13-year-old boy who accuses his stepfather of pedophilia and murdering his father. A copy of the killer's play can be found below. The teenager talks of killing the older man and, at one point, the child's mother brandishes a chain saw at the stepfather. The play ends with the man striking the child with "a deadly blow."

The Real Ahmadinejad


Jafarzadeh authored an essay that illustrates the path Ahmadinejad took to the Iranian Presidency. The source I found this article was the Blind Conservative email community dated there as April 16.

The real Ahmadinejad is a radical Shi’ite thug that was a minion of Khomeini. Under Khomeini’s tutelage Ahmadinejad tortured and murdered Iranians opposed to Khomeini’s radical revolution.

Now Ahmadinejad is the minion of new supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The Khomeini revolution took advantage of the unpopularity of Westernized Reza Pahlavi’s repressive monarchy to exchange the regime for another repressive regime based on medieval concepts of
Twelver Shi’ite theocracy.

The Times They Are a Changing


If one views time as circular or a series of historical repetitions, then Christianities time line has almost come full circle or is beginning to repeat earlier views of past history.

A significant amount of members of the European Parliament (MEPs) is criticizing the EU’s Ellen Sauerbrey, Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration because
she is scheduled to attend the World Congress of Families IV in Warsaw, Poland. Why are the MEPs critical of the World Congress of Families IV?

The conference is supportive of traditional Christian values, meaning for example homosexuality is looked upon as a value NOT conducive to the family. The MEPs have labeled some of the Congress attendees as extremist in their views.

Europe was once the great fountain of the Christian faith. Europe was also once the great fountain polytheism, some very barbaric and some very intellectual. The intellectual polytheists (primarily the Romans) tried to persecute and stamp Christianity out viewing the faith as a threat to the central control of the Roman Empire. Now that a huge chunk of the former Roman Empire is trying to coalesce into a single government known as the European Union, old patterns of persecution are emerging against Christianity.

I wonder if it will become sport to publicly humiliate and denigrate Christians as in pre-Constantine days. Time will tell.

General David Petraeus


Wow! Anna Badkhen has written an inspiring essay on the qualities that make General David Petraeus the imminent scholar/soldier for what could be the last possibility for an American victory in Iraq.

Unfortunately the most salient point Badkhen makes is that the strategy may be too little too late. Only if Republicans can win in 2008 at the White House and at least one House of Congress (both would be better), will Petraeus have time to see if a victorious conclusion can be attained in Iraq.

Iraqi Blowback


Victor Davis Hanson has written one of most ill conceived titles to an awesome essay. “Iraqi Blowback” is more an exposĂ© on the ludicrous guilty verdict of Scooter Libby than the Blowback of bad decisions made in not making a viable victory and exit strategy from Iraq.

If Democracy Fails in Iraq, the Next Step is Not a Pull-Out


Here is a theme to think of: Encouraging elections in the Middle East where Mohammedans are dominant backfired on America. Caroline Glick writes a perceptive article on how the Bush Administration had the correct motives but lack the correct understanding of hatred and violence that pervades Mohammedan culture.

This pervasive hatred will not work in a Democracy. Democratic elections in lands of hatred and violence will elect officials that perpetuate hatred and violence. The Palestine Authority elections are example of that. The Iraqi elections are an example of that.

Palestinians elected terrorists that wish to destroy Israel. Iraqis voted for their tribal/familial/religious-sect over stable unity. Thus many Sunnis and Shias are unified on one idea: listen to the Imam. If the Imam says America is an occupying force rather than a liberating force, then it must be so.

America should have found a strong man to support in Iraq that was dedicated to slowly transforming toward Democracy. That was unlikely to happen.

The Bush Administration is left with only one choice: To extricate as many insurgents and rebels from Iraq as possible then leave. Then wait and see where the chips may fall. If America gets lucky it will fall on an Iraqi leader that courts favor from America. I think the chips will fall into a tri-nation scenario that some believe will cause chaos. I do not necessarily believe that. America could ally with one or two of the tri-nation States. I suspect the Shi’ite region is simply to close to Iran. That leaves primarily the Kurds and potentially the Sunnis.

There is “NO Live to Fight another Day” for Israel


Early in my Christian faith Hal Lindsey was “the man” in which I filtered Last Days information into my mind. As time has gone by have come to realize Lindsey is a bit speculative with his conclusions subject to theological criticism. Nonetheless, Lindsey is an ardent supporter of Israel. Lindsey is also pretty good with a Christian perspective of Current Events.

Lindsey brings up an excellent point that many pro-Israel secular writers have perceived: If the Mohammedans lose, they can recuperate for another day of battle.
If Israel loses one war, it will be a genocidal devastation that will terminate Israel’s existence.

There are great stirrings in the Middle East none of which are a positive light for Israel. All the Arab and Mohammedan plans for Middle Eastern peace if accepted by Israel would lead to both physical and spiritual suicide.

A Thought Crimes Act


The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 (H.R. 1592) would be better labeled The Thought Crimes Act. If the Law is enacted Christians can be sued or tossed in jail for preaching the morality of the Holy Bible. The Thought Crimes Act would suppress free speech to the benefit of homosexual reprobates that practice a lifestyle of abomination in the site of God.

The Act quite possibly could be used to nullify State Legislation that has defined Marriage as between a male and a female. It would recognize homosexuals as a group of people on the same par of equality as gender, race, creed and religion. This is a bogus legislation that would transform America into a nation of further sexual depravity protected by the law.
