Some interesting thoughts that crossed my brain today….

I don’t always have time to write, link, and do justice to so many of the issues that exist in our country and politics today.

So today I am summarizing a few things that have creeped into my brain over the last few days.  Perhaps some of you can answer and discuss……

Why don’t the so-called 9-11 truthers concentrate less on ignorant theories that the government exploded the World Trade Center and focus more on the deficits and debt explosion of this government?

Why do the NFL (and MSM and Hollywood and liberals, in general) give a pass to, if not practically cheer for, those sports stars and others who’ve had 121 adulterous partners, raped underage girls, mutilated dogs for fun, and more…..while they show contempt for a wholesome, “saving himself” leader such as Tim Tebow?

Why is it that the so-called “tolerant” MSM and liberals are laser-focused on the sexual preference of Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, while those on the right are not?

Similarly, if Elena Kagan believes that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is so wrong in the military, why won’t she clearly state whether she is (or isn’t) a homosexual?

How is it that we always hear about “peaceful and tolerant Muslims” but we never see or hear them?  Is it because the “peaceful” cower to the violence or because the “peaceful Muslim” is non-existent but the “radical” Muslim slithers among us?

If Arizona, as of today’s signing by Governor Brewer, has a law that outlaws teaching children about the “overthrow of the US Government“, does that mean that if Obama’s is successful in imposing his ideological agenda on America that they won’t be able to learn about our 44th President in Arizona in the future?

What do you think?


‘They Need to Be Liberated From Their God’

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article about Mosab Hassan Yousef, a spy for Israel and the son of the founder of Hamas, who converted to Christianity from Islam and now resides in low profile in Southern California.

He is seeking asylum in the US and tells the story of a good father and childhood. But after seeing the brutality of many Muslims in Hamas and other places, he decided to accept an offer from Israel to become a spy.  He spied for Israel for several years until he decided he was tired of spying in 2006.  By that time, he had converted to Christianity and has moved to the US.  His family has disowned him.

Here are some of his words in the article….but the whole read is very interesting from a Christian perspective but also because through Yousef we see can through one set of eyes from a non-violent Muslim and his conversion to Christianity.  

About his turn from Islam to Christianity:

‘I absolutely know that in anybody’s eyes I was a traitor,” says Mosab Hassan Yousef. “To my family, to my nation, to my God. I crossed all the red lines in my society. I didn’t leave one that I didn’t cross.”

About Christianity’s lessons on love and caring:

“I converted to Christianity because I was convinced by Jesus Christ as a character, as a personality. I loved him, his wisdom, his love, his unconditional love. I didn’t leave [the Islamic] religion to put myself in another box of religion. At the same time it’s a beautiful thing to see my God exist in my life and see the change in my life. I see that when he does exist in other Middle Easterners there will be a change.

With that statement, my own thoughts turn to our founders and the fact that they established our country based on the moral values espoused in the Bible.   Our country has been well-served with those principles and has been a clear “change” from almost all other civilizations in history.  (Which is why we must continue fighting Obama’s anti-freedom agenda with all we have…but that is a post for another day)

 With that foundation, and through the resolve of President George W Bush, we’ve eliminated an evil regime and established a fledgling democracy in Iraq based on a moral law of individual freedom and government of the people.  Perhaps the very extension of our Judeo-Christian-based system into the Middle East and the recent successful elections in Iraq are proof that Yousef’s statement on God’s love and wisdom and accompanying change is accurate.

More on Yousef’s view of Christianity:

“I’m not trying to convert the entire nation of Israel and the entire nation of Palestine to Christianity. But at least if you can educate them about the ideology of love, the ideology of forgiveness, the ideology of grace. Those principles are great regardless, but we can’t deny they came from Christianity as well.”

On Islam’s violent “god” and the ideological war we are fighting:

As the son of a Muslim cleric, he says he had reached the conclusion that terrorism can’t be defeated without a new understanding of Islam. …… 

…….Do you consider your father a fanatic? “He’s not a fanatic,” says Mr. Yousef. “He’s a very moderate, logical person. What matters is not whether my father is a fanatic or not, he’s doing the will of a fanatic God. It doesn’t matter if he’s a terrorist or a traditional Muslim. At the end of the day a traditional Muslim is doing the will of a fanatic, fundamentalist, terrorist God. I know this is harsh to say. Most governments avoid this subject. They don’t want to admit this is an ideological war.

and the lies of Islam:

“The problem is not in Muslims,” he continues. “The problem is with their God. They need to be liberated from their God. He is their biggest enemy. It has been 1,400 years they have been lied to.”

And the very fact that Yousef lives under the veil of continued threat against his life clearly exhibits the difference between what he describes as the lying God of Islam and the loving God of Christianity.  For simply speaking out against his former religion, the followers of Islam, including his family, are taught to hate him, if not eliminate him.

So much for Kum-ba-ya….

Newsflash!  The world is not bathing in peace due to the impending ascension of THE ONE!

Obama, what happened to all of that hope, change, and only YOU can change the world? 

I thought things like this happened only because of Bad, Bad, Bush?!?!?

Congress Passes Resolution in Support of Israel BUT look at the non-supporters of Israel!

Today, Congress passed the following resolution in support of Israel and the peace process:

Recognizing Israel’s right to defend itself against attacks from Gaza, reaffirming the United States’ strong support for Israel, and supporting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

From Atlas Shrugs, their were 5 NO votes and 22 PRESENT votes.  So 5 members of Congress don’t support Israel’s right to defend itself and 22 members are too cowardly to say they don’t. (All but one, Ron Paul, are Democrats and 25% are from California)

Here is the list…including the one Muslim member of Congress from Minnesota, Keith Ellison, who is under scrutiny for his ties to and for accepting funds from the American Muslim Society, a radical front group for bringing Islamic law and culture to the US.

Members Of Congress Who Believe That Israel Has NO Right to Defend Herself

Dennis J. Kucinich (D – OH)
Gwen Moore (D-WI)
Ron Paul (R – Saturn TX)
Nick Rahall (D-WV)
Maxine Waters (D-CA)

Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) [Hamas lover– a dangerous leftard)

This is disgraceful. 
If a similar hypothetical situation transpired with rockets being fired unprovoked, in the hundreds or thousands, from troubled Tijuana into southern San Diego County, I guess those same 27 Congressional members (especially the 25% from California) would vote that the US/San Diego/California doesn’t have the right to defend itself nor have our full support in stopping the attacks….(that metaphor was something I read or heard a few days ag0, but don’t remember where)
As Atlas says, we need to be cognizant and informed of the threat and enemy within.  It is not a comfortable thought, but I count at least 27 reasons why our guard must be up now more than ever.  Watch for the enemy from within…

One President at a time on Israel…Two Presidents for Economy

Isn’t the silence deafening? Obama hasn’t invoked one thought, idea, plan, or any type of support during the past week of Israel’s rightful bombardment of Hamas….the only peep we’ve heard is “Obama respects that there is only one President at time”…..

obama-condescendingFunny that…..According to several news reports, Obama is giving a major speech on his Socialist economic stimulus plan this week…..and we currently have ONE President in office.

I mean I’ll be the first to admit that Bush and Congress’ free-for-all bailouts in 2008 did enough damage….do we really need TWO Presidents handing over more taxpayer money this month? 

I’d rather have TWO Presidents supporting Israel at the moment! 

AND Obama has asked his Dem-controlled Congress to have an economic plan on his desk the day of inauguration. (Although reports today say it may be mid-February, which is still a rushed bill)

You know what that means right? It will be a bill pulled together in two weeks with little to no ability for citizens (or many members of Congress) to review before the Socialist Dems vote in Obama’s job stimulus plan for 600,000 NEW GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES  and government welfare checks  for those who work part time….not to mention tax increases on the “wealthy”…you know, the ones who actually stimulate business and employment.

As we start the new year, this post serves as a reminder of the long, hellacious ride we are in for after we get back down to ONE President on January 20 and a majority of Socialist, dunderheads in Congress to rubber stamp Obama’s welfare and Socialist programs….

I keep telling myself America has bounced back before…and I hope we do again after the beating that liberty, self-sufficiency, morality, common sense, and plain-old patriotism are about to take for at least the next 4 years!

The streets of San Francisco flowing with Jewish hatred…

This is America….but looks like it could be a street in the Middle East….how much more of this religion of “peace” murder and intolerance do we have to tolerate? 

Israel is fed up and doing what needed to be done long ago (and likely is timed before The “O” takes office)…..but did you, the average American, know how much hatred of Jews and pro-Palestinian support flows into the streets of America when they have a chance to voice their hatred?

Take a peek and as, Atlas Shrugs, says, “get a peek into America’s future”….

More San Fran Jew-hatred documented by Zombie Time:

Meanwhile, at an earlier San Francisco Gaza protest on December 30, the Palestinian protesters (according to this post at the “At the Back of the Hill” blog) chanted the following slogans in Arabic:

Itbach al Yahud” (slaughter the Jews)
Falastin balad’na w’al Yahud qalab’na” (Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs)
ba ruh, ba dam, nafdeek ya Falastin” (with our soul, with our blood, we will cleanse you oh Palestine),
al mawt al Yahud” (death to the Jews),
Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahud, jaish-Muhammad saya’ud” (Khaybar Khaybar oh Jews, the army of Muhammad will return).

At the Back of the Hill noted,

While the Arabs screamed their desire to exterminate Jews, the English-monolingualists simply stood there happily smiling their approbation.

As similarly noted by ZombieTime, it’s as if the Hamas fighting has spilled into the streets of America…..think about that for awhile!  Then realize that the man taking office this month as President has had little to nothing to say about Israel’s defense of itself in the last week (but supposedly supports Israel wholeheartedly)….and don’t forget our President-elect had the following to say early last year about his “understanding” of Hamas and its support for him…from NY Daily News:

“It’s conceivable that there are those in the Arab world who say to themselves, ‘This is a guy who spent some time in the Muslim world, has a middle name of Hussein and appears more worldly and has called for talks with people, and so he’s not going to be engaging in the same sort of cowboy George Bush,” Obama said in an interview with The Atlantic.

“That’s a perfectly legitimate perception as long as they’re not confused about my unyielding support for Israel’s security,” Obama said.

Didn’t he just contradict himself there somehow?  Regardless, that is how Obama explains away Hamas’ support for him as our next President….

Interesting that our next President “understands” the people and the mindset that exists in the video above……and believes he can “engage” them in “diplomacy” and convince them of his support for Israel.

(The thugs supporting Hamas didn’t look very diplomatic when they attacked the grossly outnumbered Israel supporters on the sidelines….. )

I think their behavior and words above are pretty symbolic for why Hamas does not seek “peace” and why the supposed “peace talks” and agreements are a farce.

Dingy, Disgraceful, (ex)Democratic Dame on Dinghy Dignity, Dinged-up then Docked


Cynthia McKinney - (Source: Wikipedia)

Cynthia McKinney, lunatic ex-Congresswoman from Georgia, well known for her remarks that Bush “knew about 9/11 beforehand” was on a luxury boat named Dignity today that was turned back by the Israeli Navy.

Her cause?  Well, the anti-Semitic, pro-Arab, pro-Palestinian liberal crazy lady was with other misguided activists supposedly trying to get medicines to Hamas!

From Atlanta Journal Constitution via Michelle Malkin:

Former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is a high-profile member of a boatload of activists that set sail Monday from Cyprus to deliver medicine to war-torn Gaza……The activists, organized by the Free Gaza Group, said their 66-foot yacht called “SS Dignity” would defy an Israeli blockade of Gaza and ferry 16 activists and three tons of Cypriot-donated supplies. The supplies are intended to help treat the wounded from Israeli bombings against targets in Gaza, in retaliation for rocket fire aimed at civilians in southern Israeli towns.

Much reporting on this has indicated that the boat was manhandled by an Israeli ship, when, in truth, it appears, the Dignity was commanded by the Israeli ship to turn around and did not…then chose to run into the Israeli ship.

From the Jerusalem Post:

Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said the boat ignored an Israeli radio order to turn back early Tuesday.

Palmor says the boat tried to outmaneuver an Israeli navy ship and crashed into it, which lightly damaged both vessels. The navy then escorted the boat out into the territorial waters of Cyprus.  


The presentation clearly wants you to believe that the Israeli boat was hostile and went well out of their way to attack the ‘peaceful’ minded vessel.  In reality though, it was nothing more than a typical group of protestors who use the word ‘peaceful’ as a security blanket in their malicious efforts to defy authority, whether it be the authority of the United States government, or in this case, the Israeli navy. 

How does anyone take this woman or these “activists” seriously? 

And how does a woman, who claims she learned the need for social justice at an early age from her father and the Civil Rights movement, seriously engage herself with and support terrorist organizations that indiscriminately and purposely fire rockets at innocents simply because of their heritage?

I guess rationality loses to hypocrisy when one seeks to condemn and bring down America and her allies and when one opposes democracy and freedom at all turns—-not to mention the conspiratorial lies this woman has spread about our country and President Bush, her disprespect for law enforcement, and her adulation of Leftists like Chavez. 

I say Israel should let Dignity port somewhere in Gaza and let McKinney and her cohorts experience the “social justice” and “law enforcement” of Hamas….the only Dignity found in Gaza would then be a luxury yacht.
