Regarding the “deranged ululating blood-lusting head-hackers” and their cultural apologists in America


Preacher burns Koran in America.  Blood-thirsty Muslims slaughter innocents in Afghanistan.

America’s military leader in Afghanistan (Petraeus) apologizes for freedom and talks about our mission to “help Afghans”…(what happened to defeating our enemies?)

A leading GOP Senator (Lindsay RINO Graham) wishes that the First Amendment were not in the way of holding the preacher “accountable”.

 I wish we could find some way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war. During World War II, you had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy.

Good heavens what kind of America do we now live in? (Don’t answer that….it depresses me.)

As usual, however, Mark Steyn, rips open the ignorance of portraying American regret for the “free” pastor while completely missing the boat on the blood-thirsty monsters for whom there is no excuse.

Mark Steyn:

The reason we’re losing this thing is because of a lack of cultural confidence………

When I’m speaking on this subject, I often get asked to reprise the words I quote in my book, from Gen. Sir Charles Napier in India explaining to the locals his position on suttee — the tradition of burning widows on the funeral pyres of their husbands. General Napier was impeccably multicultural:

You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows.You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.

In the absence of cultural confidence overseas, we are expending blood and treasure building an Afghanistan fit only for pederasts, tribal heroin cartels, and the blood-soaked savages of Mazar e-Sharif. In the absence of cultural confidence at home, we are sending the message that the bedrock principles of free, pluralist societies will bend and crumble in a vain race to keep up with the ever touchier sensitivities of the perpetually aggrieved. Claire Berlinski has it right: The real “racists” here are not this no-name pastor and his minimal flock but Reid, Graham, and the Times — for they assume that a significant proportion of Muslims are not responsible human beings but animals no more capable of rational behavior than the tiger who mauled Siegfried’s Roy. If that is true, certain consequences follow therefrom. The abandonment of the First Amendment is not one of them.

In Trafalgar Square, there is a statue of General Napier. I would urge any visitors to London to see it before it’s taken down, as it surely will be one day soon. Imagine what our world would look like if it were Lindsey Graham up on that plinth. A society led by such “men” cannot survive, and does not deserve to.

Read it all from Steyn here.

And Andy McCarthy at National Review has made strong arguments about this situation as well in No More Dhimmitude:

As always, Mark leaves nothing left to say regarding Sen. Lindsey Graham — though I am tempted to suggest that maybe the country would have been better off if he hadn’t exercised his First Amendment right to offer help beefing up the Libyan regime when he was a special guest in Qaddafi’s tent a few months back.

I would instead like to draw attention to the repugnant statement issued by General David Petraeus and NATO Ambassador Mark Sedwill…….

Notice he condemns the moron who torched the Koran — um, I’m sorry, the Holy Qur’an (including all its holy verses that command Muslims to strike terror into the hearts of unbelievers) — but not a word of condemnation for the sadistic jihadist killers who struck terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. Rather, there is just an expression of sympathy for the families of those who were slain. And, of course, there is not a word of condemnation for our great ally, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the jihadi-pandering sleaze who did more to incite murder than the nutty Florida pastor did.

The warped moral universe we’ve turned into policy has become a national embarrassment……..Our Middle East policymakers can no longer distinguish between evil and stupidity. They go out of their way to genuflect to the scriptures that catalyze our enemies while willfully ignoring bible burning, church burning and infidel burning, which are everyday events in Islamic countries. Their strategy prizes the lives of people who despise our country over the security of our troops. After a decade of our sacrifice, they have managed to birth states in which Americans are hated, religious minorities are persecuted, and people who attempt to convert from Islam face prosecution and — unless they get whisked out of the country — the death penalty. And now, they’ve decide the big problem is not their skewed value-system but our First Amendment.

Read all of McCarthy’s piece, too.  It’s worth it.

Sad that we don’t fight wars to win them anymore, but to “take care” of our enemies and bow to THEIR will.  And the rhetoric and accompanying action is coming from the usually suspect politicians, but now also our military leaders feel the need to speak out against our First Amendment rights while ignoring the slaughter of innocents it supposedly triggered. 

It is exceptionally troubling that our leaders condemn the Koran-burning without mentioning Islamic slaughter, but a “piss-Christ” is considered art and funded by our leaders with our money.  Burning the American flag is an important First Amendment “right”….burning a Koran requires Senate hearings.

As Rush pointed out today, our US military burns Bibles in Afghanistan, but condemns one man in Florida burning a Koran?!?!?!??

Words can’t describe my feelings on the shape that our country finds itself in, including the lack of courage in our leaders.

Thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the shooting in Tucson


With regard to the deplorable shooting on Saturday of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the deaths of 5 others and injuries to many more…..

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families and victims.  What a difficult turn of events for them to be struggling and dealing with.  God Bless them all. 

And I wish a non-eventful and speedy recovery to Congresswoman Giffords and the others who are injured — whether physically or mentally or both.  God Bless.

Something to consider: A snapshot-in-time of YOUR country


As I’ve read and listened to the new just over the last several days, I just keep wondering what our country is and has been transforming to. 

As I’ve stated before, I no longer believe the fight in this country is between Republicans and Democrats or liberals vs. conservatives, per se. I believe our fight is clearly one on many fronts: good vs. evil, anti-Capitalists vs. Capitalists, immoral vs. moral, and haters-of-Americans vs. America lovers, and freedom suppressors vs. freedom lovers. This includes clear assaults on our markets, upon Christians, upon patriots, our military, and our system of laws. 

Much of the most recent news gives a great glimpse into the country we are becoming and have become. As you read these examples, think to yourself if this is the country you want now and one you wish to leave to your kids and grandkids. 

We’ve sat on the sidelines for far too long while we’ve allowed these assaults on our institutions to fester and grow. It is a sad state of affairs.  And the current administration and Congress has done virtually nothing to make it better and almost everything to make it worse. 

I give you, my fellow citizens, a snapshot of your country in the Spring, 2010: 

Patriotism no longer accepted:  Students sent home for wearing American flag to school on Cinco de Mayo 

Students from Live Oak School in California

 

A group of California students who dared to wear the American flag on Cinco de Mayo learned a hard lesson about the corruption of citizenship and sovereignty this week. 

They were sent home for their show of U.S. patriotism. 

  

No bounds to immorality and perversion:  It’s official: Cher’s gender-swap son Chaz Bono is legally a man   The disgusting details: 

Chaz Bono as man....formerly Chastity Bono

 

Bono started undergoing gender-reassignment surgery in March 2009 – soon after turning 40. 

In an interview last year, he said undergoing the surgery was ‘the best decision I’ve ever made’. 

He said: ‘I feel so much more comfortable than I’ve ever been. 

‘I’ve felt male as far back as I can remember. Life is short and life is precious. This is who I am. I need to finally be who I am.’ 

He explained that the entire  transition from female to male will take about four to five years. 

So far, his breasts have been removed and he has received hormone treatments to deepen his voice. And to his delight, he now has to shave his face. 

As one commenter in the news article stated clearly: 

What should be discussed as a psychiatric disorder is instead being celebrated, at least by this nutty girl and a few like-minded gawkers. 

And another: 

“Anyone can be confused and uncomfortable, have pieces removed and foreign pieces sewn on, and take hormones to change all sorts of things. It does not change what you were created to be. It only creates an illusion.” 

Intolerance of Christianity and free speech:  National Day of Prayer ruled unconstitutional  & Franklin Graham disinvited to speak at Prayer event because of his views on Islam

Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted Muslims. 

“It looks like Islam has gotten a pass,” he told reporters. “They are able to have their services, but just because I disagree … I’m excluded.” 

Franklin Graham

 

Kudos to Graham for defending his beliefs and Jesus Christ and hanging tough amidst his Biblically prophetic outright persecution.  Since when is it not OK to profess the Christian faith and belief? Maybe since Obama said, “We are no longer a Christian Nation“. More Graham: 

He (Graham) said he doesn’t believe “all religions are equal” and that there is only “one way to God” — and that is through Jesus. 

Asked if he still believes Islam is evil, he said: “I believe the way they treat women is evil, yes I do.” And, can he understand how some of his comments would be offensive to Muslims? “Oh, I’m sure,” he said. “But I find what they teach and what they preach and what’s on the Internet — I find that to be offensive, too.” 

Another moment in the press conference, he said people shouldn’t be offended because it’s simply a disagreement in what people believe. 

Last time I checked, Franklin Graham runs an organization for helping the poor, downtrodden, and abused.  They are active in Haiti, Chile, Nashville and more currently helping with disasters.   He comes from perhaps the most ethical of families but is persecuted for calling evil what it is.  Islam is not a religion of love and helping fellow man, but is an authoritative one of suppression, threats, and violence and one that condemns those who disagree with its tenets.  

Franklin Graham prays for Muslims with whom he disagrees.  But in Islam, Graham is an infidel and worthy of death.  Can the contrast be any more stark? 

More snapshots  of your country in the news including High Unemployment, Immorality, boycotts for border laws, Presidential power grabs, entitlements run amok and sports star and Hollywood depravity: 

Of course, not all is lost in America.  I hold out great hope that the uprising of American patriots will turn back the tide of this assault on America. 

But reality is reality and these headlines are but a snapshot in time of our country right now.  Would the founders even recognize us anymore?  Just ponder the thought and think/pray about what it is that you might be able to offer to our country to change it back to what it was meant to be.

Mandate to the Left of me, Divison to the Right, here I am stuck in a nightmare with “O”


Isn’t it interesting that waaaay back in 2004 when Bush won the election with 51% of the vote, the mainstream media, Democrats, liberals and partisans came out of the woodwork to say his win was NOT A MANDATE, but DIVISION?  The 51% was not a decisive edge, but stood for a great divide in this country and Bush’s win was the cause of it, basically.

Now move on up 4 years to 2008….Barack Obama won with 52% of the vote and, well, we have ourselves a BIG “O” MANDATE flush with unity and condescending compassionate victors.  Oh, and did we mention landslide?  That extra one percent sure does pack a punch!

Try to remember this “unity” game when Obama, and his power-hungry friends, Reid and Pelosi continue to blame “W” for all of “O”‘s problems….remember they have full-power now…but, of course, far be it from the brilliant leftists in charge to take responsiblity for their actions!  In fact, the precedent is being set for low expectations from the party of full-power.

From Jules Crittenden:

It’s not like they’re suddenly going to stop bashing Bush. Bush will be the excuse every time their guy stumbles. That’s OK, let them blame Bush. I’ve noticed they’ve already started looking for ways to avoid responsibility, dancing around the mandate issue. SF Chron

President-elect Barack Obama’s resounding election triumph was greeted Wednesday from nearly every quarter in Washington as a mandate for change. What was most striking after a resounding victory that also added at least five Democrats to the Senate and 23 to the House, was how gingerly Democratic leaders treated their new mandate.

It is “not a mandate for any political party or any ideology,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., “but a mandate to get over those things that divide us and focus on getting things done.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, warned that Obama comes to office with “more expectations than any president I can ever remember in my lifetime,” and quickly sought to dampen them, citing the constraints of two wars and a sinking economy.

Even Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean said, “I don’t think it’s a mandate for the New Deal. … I think it’s a mandate that the political class in this country has an obligation to young people in this country to stop fighting over stuff that might have been a big issue 25 years ago but it isn’t anymore.”

So just what does mandate mean then if you can’t use it to meet those high expectations you’ve set among the Sheeple?  Jules has the answer:

……. Obama’s election is not a mandate for them to actually do anything. It’s a mandate for Republicans to shut up. About abortion, gay rights, guns, affirmative action, killing jihadis, and whatever else Republicans have been squawking about. That’s an interesting kind of mandate. Mandate for an end to free speech?

Nail on the head.

The push is already on to muzzle conservative talk radio and silence dissent


For you libs out there sqawking about how we should all sit down and sing Kumbaya now that The One is elected….well all I can say is go pound sand….

I have already had “moderate” libs knocking on the comments door of this blog declaring that I/we must “watch our words” and do something for the “hate” I/we possess for Obama.
Now that we’ve had eight years of demented and deranged Bush hatred, you are all ready for us to be silent and let The One do his Messiah thing…..hogwash!

Outing the radical, dissent silencing plans of Obama is not hate….it makes sense for anyone who loves our Constitution and right to Free Speech.

rush-silenced-picWe are about 48 hours into “president-elect” status with Obama and he has already appointed the FCC Transition Czar….an avid opponent of free speech on the airwaves….he was actually the FCC Commissioner who resigned during the Reagan Administration and Reagan was able to bring free speech and “free market” speech to the airwaves.

Obama touts his change rhetoric but its only words in a speech….First, he appoints Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff…..some change…Emanuel is known for his nasty partisanship and he hails from Chicago and probably attended the same “Old Chicago School of Thuggery” that Obama attended.
Now, Obama has appointed Henry Rivera, the old school radical leftist “executioner of free speech”….

Read from Brian Maloney’s piece at The Radio Equalizer:

Ahead of a widely-expected crackdown on free speech and political dissent by the incoming Obama administration, our Dear Leader has appointed a new FCC transition czar to oversee the process.

Henry Rivera, a longtime radical leftist, lawyer and former FCC commissioner, is expected to lead the push to dismantle commercial talk radio that is favored by a number of Democratic Party senators. Rivera will play a pivotal role in preventing critics from having a public voice during Obama’s tenure in office.

Rivera, who resigned from the FCC nearly a quarter-century ago during the Reagan years, believes in a doctrine of “communications policy as a civil rights issue”.

His exit during the Reagan Administration paved the way for the Fairness Doctrine’s repeal when the late president appointed Patricia Diaz Dennis in 1986 to fill out the rest of Rivera’s term. Had this not occurred, talk radio as we know it today would not exist.

That gives Rivera’s new task a great deal of personal urgency: it’s a late-career, second chance opportunity to shut down opposition voices that have been allowed to flourish since his depature from the commission.

In particular, Rivera is known for his push for more minority broadcasting ownership, but this issue has largely been rendered obsolete as former commercial broadcasting empires teeter on the brink of bankruptcy.

Rivera’s first opportunity to eliminate commercial talk radio will occur in June 2009, as the term of Republican Robert McDowell expires and he can be replaced with a pro-Fairness Doctrine Democrat. That will give the commission a three-vote Democratic majority, though the final two seats must remain in Republican hands.

If they can strong-arm one of the three Republicans into leaving early, this can be implemented even sooner.

One issue facing Rivera and Obama’s new commissioner is how the policy will be carried out. According to data from the 1970s, when the old doctrine regulated the content of speech on the radio, the FCC was forced to utilize a great deal of its resources sifting through tens of thousands of “unfairness” complaints. The FCC’s staff might have to be increased substantially to accommodate listeners looking to censor radio programming in their area.

Read the rest here.

Republicans, Conservatives and those who respect our founders intentions and Free Speech have the fight of the century on our hands here…..this CANNOT happen!

A guy who speaks what McCain supporters know


This guy has a different presentation style, but is spot on with what McCain supporters UNDERSTAND about Barack Obama and liberals…Basically, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing!

Compare and contrast him to typical Obama supporter, “Ms. Obama will help me get free gas if I help him“.

Inhofe cracks ACORN nuts the Oklahoma Way!


Jim Inhofe, former mayor of Tulsa and current US Senator, gives a clear and concise lesson on how to keep ACORN Nuts (pun intended) away from your home.  He speaks from personal experience.

From an AP story:

Recalling a run-in 25 years ago with a group accused of voter registration irregularities, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe says protesters scattered when he warned them to leave his home in one minute or “I’ll kill all of you.”

The Tulsa Republican made the comment in an interview published Thursday by the Alva Review-Courier.

Inhofe says he was mayor of Tulsa at the time and the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now, known as ACORN, was mad at him over a housing issue involving Cuban refugees.

When his wife called frantically to say a group of Cuban protestors were at his house, Inhofe says he confronted them and threatened to kill them if they didn’t get off his property.

Inhofe confirmed the incident Friday in a statement issued through his campaign headquarters in Oklahoma City.

He says the protesters were threatening his wife, his children and his home, and that he thinks Oklahomans can understand his willingness to go to any length to protect his family.

This may be a very common reaction, indeed, when the government gets closer to coming for OUR guns, OUR 401K’s, OUR property, and OUR free speech!…….The Oklahoma Way!
